New Project to Develop Moroccan-Made Solar-Powered Water Heaters

Fez – Two weeks after King Mohammed VI launched the first phase of the world’s largest solar power complex in Ouarzazate, a new milestone has been reached this week in Fez with the launching of a project to develop a Moroccan-made solar-powered water heaters.Sidi Mohammed bin Abdullah University Chairman, Omar Assobhei; Director of Fez Technology Graduate School, Ali Ben Bassou; Energypoles Company President, Jean-Pierre Piedo; General Director of Solar Energy and Power Research Institute, Badr Aiken; and General Manager of Energy Investment Company (SIE), Ahmed Baroudi signed the financing agreement for the “SOL’R SHEMSY” project. The project aims at developing Moroccan-made solar energy powered water heaters.The project will be jointly supervised by Sidi Mohammed bin Abdullah University, Energy Investments Company and Energypoles Company. The project budget, which is estimated at MAD 5,958,000, is 60 percent financed by the Research Institute for Solar Energy and New Energies (IRESEN).Ben Bassou told MAP that the “project primarily aims to produce and market purely Moroccan-made water heaters which rely on solar energy, taking into consideration European standards and a suitable cost.’’He also highlighted the capabilities available at Fez Technology Graduate School, including both “human resources and the necessary equipment (workshops and laboratories) to make a model solar-powered water heater.”The same source added that “the institution allocated spaces for the required machinery and equipment that will be purchased to serve the project.”Ben Bassou also revealed that another project related to solar energy is in the works. It aims to study the use of solar energy in refrigeration and the installation of absorption machines in Morocco. The project is funded by the “Innoprojets” Program at IRESEN at an estimated cost of MAD 3,433,000.Fez Technology Graduate School has two laboratories for research and training: one that specializes in the study of refrigeration systems and prototypes of green buildings, while the other is dedicated to photovoltaic installations and wind power.These projects represent a larger movement toward renewable energy investment in Morocco. Recently King Mohammed VI inaugurated Noor Ouarzazate, the largest concentrated solar power complex in the world and gave the green light for the construction of Noor II and Noor III.Edited by Kelsey Fish read more

Indian Government Bans Social Media in Kashmir

Rabat – Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp are among 22 social networks temporarily banned by authorities in India. Srinagar: The Indian Government has imposed a month-long ban on 22 popular social media networks in Indian-administered Kashmir. Facebook, Twitter and WhatsApp have been blocked. The reason being cited is that “Social media is being misused by antinational and antisocial elements.” The order was issued by the state home department on Wednesday, April 26.From 2012-2016, the government blocked internet services 31 times, although internet and cellular services have been shut intermittently in the past. In 2016, the Indian government blocked internet signals for five months. This is the first time the government has used selective bans by blocking specific social media websites and applications in Kashmir, instead of implementing a blanket ban on the internet. High speed internet was restored on Saturday after it was blocked on April 17.According to the government order, the ban was imposed “in the interest of maintenance of public order,” blaming social media for inciting violence and disorder. It was also blamed for spreading rumors, further deteriorating the escalating tension following a fresh wave of student protests which have rocked the Kashmir valley.“The government hereby directs all internet service providers that any message … through the following social networking sites shall not be transmitted in Kashmir Valley with immediate effect for a period of one month or till further orders, which ever is earlier,” the order read.The sites and apps blocked also include Wechat, QQ,Qzone, Google Plus, Skype, Line, Pinterest, Snapchat, YouTube (an Upload feature), Vine and Flickr.Yasir Altaf Zargar, a Kashmir-based web security analyst asserted, “This ban is violation of the right to expression and free speech, and instead of addressing the escalating situation they are imposing this useless ban.”“Internet is one of the basic human rights in the contemporary times, banning internet is not just unethical but acrimonious too,” Zargar said.“Instead of addressing the issue, the government is imposing this useless social media ban, in absence of social media and internet there will be no means of verifying rumors either which can prove more dangerous,” he added.The government has claimed that the decision to ban social media networks was necessary to calm the escalating student situation down, as a growing number of students are hitting the streets to protest the police raid on a college in south Kashmir.Students are angered by a raid carried out by police earlier this month on a college in Pulwama district of south Kashmir, in which police personnel barged into the college, tear gassed and tried to detain students accused of throwing stones which resulted in injuries to 52 students. The valley has been witnessing student protests since the incident.Hundreds of student protesters from various colleges and universities have taken to the streets, many chanting anti-India slogans and throwing stones at the police.In a recent escalation of the situation, the valley is witnessing female students throwing stones and coming out in large numbers to protest the police and the government for the first time.“We are not going to be scared anymore, enough is enough! They are killing our brothers and fathers every day!  We want our right to freedom, we will protest and we will resist this occupation,” said a female student protester.The ban is hitting hard at start-ups and business owners who are dependent on social media and internet. “Seventy percent of our revenue is generated through social media, this ban will prove to be disastrous for startups in the valley,” Muheet Mehraj, Founder of KashmirBox.com, said. “Because of such internet bans many companies are forced to relocate their offices outside Kashmir.”The ban has been ordered for one month, but the government directive mentions that, if the situation fails to normalize, the ban could be extended further. read more

Canadian Natural Resources fined 10000 following accident that killed two

by Ian Bickis, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 4, 2017 11:55 am MDT Last Updated Jan 4, 2017 at 4:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email CALGARY – Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. has been fined $10,000 by Alberta’s professional engineering society — the maximum allowed — following an investigation into an accident at an oilsands site that killed two and injured five.The Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Alberta said Wednesday that it found the company engaged in unprofessional conduct by failing to make sure building plans were certified by an engineer and by contracting with a company without making sure it was competent to do the work.The investigation looked into events on April 24, 2007, where workers were building a 20-metre high oil tank at the Horizon oilsands project north of Fort McMurray, Alta., when cables holding up a roof support structure snapped due to high winds.The falling steel structure broke apart, with debris striking an electrical consultant, killing him. A scaffolder was crushed and died on the way to the hospital.Two other workers were seriously injured and three others suffered minor injuries.The engineering association found that the steel cables supporting the roofing structure were inadequate and did not meet regulations, and that the person who designed the construction procedures was not a professional engineer in Alberta.“It was an extremely significant and unfortunate event,” said APEGA registrar Carol Moen. “This particular event is likely to be probably the most significant one from an impact and outcome perspective that APEGA has engaged in, in our history.”Moen said the association levied the maximum amount allowable against the company. But, she added, work is underway to increase the maximum allowable fine for companies to $500,000 per violation as part of the first review of the provincial legislation that governs the engineering profession in about 30 years.In addition to the fine, the association said Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) will have to pay, up to a maximum of $150,000, to help develop a new practice standard on sourcing engineering and geoscience work outside of the province.Moen said the work will help improve engineering practices across Alberta.“Our goal is to not only make sure that CNRL understands the relative significance of what has happened, but also to raise the bar for the profession,” said Moen.Canadian Natural Resources said in a statement that it’s looking forward to developing the new standards and that a senior member of its leadership team will actively participate and work together with the association on the initiative.The company also said that it had changed its safety practices following the tragedy and now requires contracting companies to provide evidence of qualifications before engineering work is done.“We take every incident seriously,” said company spokeswoman Julie Woo in an email. “Following this incident, CNRL took steps to advance our processes to ensure health and safety standards are consistently met by all contractors.”Last February, Alberta Occupational Health and Safety released the results of its investigation into the accident and concluded that the company did not do enough to ensure that one of its contractors had construction plans certified by a professional engineer.The Canadian subsidiary of Sinopec Shanghai Engineering Co. Ltd., the Chinese engineering firm that Canadian Natural Resources contracted out to, pled guilty in 2012 to three workplace safety charges and was ordered to pay $1.5 million in penalties.Canadian Natural Resources faced 29 workplace safety charges but they were stayed in 2012.Follow @ibickis on Twitter.

Ban urges inclusion of conflict areas in development planning

“The 1.5 billion people who live in fragile and conflict-affected areas have been largely left behind in our work towards the MDGs,” the Secretary-General said referring to the Millennium Development Goals, the eight anti-poverty targets world leaders agreed to reach by 2015.Mr. Ban delivered the remarks in a video message to participants at a conference held in Dili, Timor-Leste, on shaping development priorities after the 2015 deadline.The central element to post-2015 plans must be “transforming violent conflicts and fragility into peace, justice and shared prosperity,” Mr. Ban said. He added that to accomplish these goals, the international community must work together on “strengthening legitimate institutions and governance, building capacities for mediation and dialogue, enhancing security and adequate social protection, and ensuring justice and jobs.” The conference, entitled ‘Development for All: Stop conflict, build states and eradicate poverty,’ was hosted by the Timorese Government and the g7+ group in collaboration with the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) and partners.The g7+ group, which is currently headed by Timor-Leste, consists of 19 of the world’s most fragile States that have come together to share experiences and lobby for international actors to engage more effectively in their countries.Timor-Leste endured a long and often violent journey towards independence and democracy since it formally broke away from Indonesia in 2002. The UN peacekeeping mission there, UNMIT, shut down in December 2012. The UN remains engaged in Timor-Leste, focusing on social and economic development. During today’s conference, Mr. Ban noted that the objectives he outlined are not only relevant for the g7+ or post-conflict countries but for the entire international community.“Peace and security, the rule of law, human rights and inclusive political processes are mutually reinforcing goals for all countries,” he said. read more

Rapist jailed six times for sexual offences remanded in custody over Dart

first_img No Comments By Conor Gallagher and Isabel Hayes A RAPIST WHO has been jailed six times for sexual offences over the last 25 years has been remanded in custody pending imposition of a new prison term for the sexual assault of a woman.Paul Moore (51) had been on bail awaiting sentencing for the offence which took place on the DART in 2014.At Dublin Circuit Criminal Court Judge Melanie Greally today indicated she would impose a three year sentence with the final 18 months suspended at the end of this month but said she wanted time to “fine tune the conditions” that would apply on his release.Judge Greally said she was putting the case back to confirm if a special request could be made for urine analysis to be taken as part of post release supervision by The Probation Service.She remanded Moore in custody until 30 March next after hearing evidence from his case manager and probation officer on what conditions should apply to a partly suspended sentence to assist him in refraining from offending.They confirmed to the court that Moore had been compliant with the terms of his supervision following release from his previous jail term last April. They advised that he should remain sober in public and his case manager suggested he observe a night time curfew.Au pairPreviously the court heard Moore assaulted the victim, an au pair, in 2014 as she was travelling home from college. Gardaí examined CCTV footage of the incident but Moore was not recognised on the video until two years later.In the meantime, he sexually assaulted two women in separate incidents in the city centre after stopping them in the street and asking them for a cigarette. In 2015, he was jailed for 15 months for these attacks. He was released in April 2016 and was subject to probation supervision.In that case, Judge Martin Nolan noted Moore “has a predisposition to violence towards women which manifests as rape and sexual assault”.His other offences include raping a musician in 2001, for which he received ten years and raping another woman in 1995, for which he received seven years.Moore of Mountjoy Square, Dublin , pleaded guilty at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court to sexually assaulting the woman on the southside DART on 28 August, 2014.PrisonAt a previous hearing in February Moore’s defence counsel, Breffni Gordon BL, said he had spent a significant portion of his life in prison.Counsel said there were conflicting opinions on what caused Moore to commit these crimes. One psychiatric report blamed a head injury he received in 1982 while another blamed an “organic personality disorder.”Mr Gordon had asked the court to hear from Moore’s case officer in the Probation Service to see if Moore could “deal with his problems” without going to prison.Judge Greally said Moore’s inability to desist from offending, no matter what punishment was imposed, was a matter of real concern to the court.The judge said any sentence would have to “maximise the ability of the services to supervise Moore”.

Minister allegedly snubs Greek organisations

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Sections of the Greek community have expressed their disappointment recently at what they perceive to be visiting Greek Deputy Foreign Minister Kostas Tsiaras’ failure to engage with prominent Greek Australian organisations. According to several sources, the Pan-Macedonian Federation and the Australian Hellenic Council had requested an audience with the Deputy Foreign Minister which was denied. Subsequently, members of the above-named organisations were contacted by the Greek Consulate in Melbourne and two back-to-back meetings were scheduled at the luxury hotel at which the Deputy Foreign Minister is staying for the duration of his visit to Melbourne. It is alleged that when delegates from the two organisations arrived at the hotel, they were met by Mr Tsiaras and Consul-General of Greece in Melbourne Eleni Lianidou in the foyer. “Mr Tsiaras and Ms Lianidou were surprisingly brusque with us,” one of the attendees, who did not wish to be named, stated. “We were told that the Deputy Foreign Minister would not hold a meeting for each organisation as was previously arranged but would combine them into one.” Members of the two organisations had booked a meeting room at the hotel in anticipation of their consultation with Mr Tsiaras. “Mr Tsiaras refused to go into the room,” another attendee stated. “He said that going into the room, which was in the hotel itself, would take up too much of his time and insisted that the meeting be held with all of us standing around the hotel lobby.” “We tried to explain to Mr Tsiaras that hanging around the foyer was not appropriate for the matters we needed to discuss as they were of a serious and important nature,” another attendee stated. “When we pointed this out, he accused us of being aggressive and refused to give us a hearing. We had no alternative but to leave.” It has been rumoured for some time that the relationship between the Consul-General of Greece, Ms Lianidou, and the aforementioned community organisations that lobby State and Federal Governments on issues pertaining to Greek-Australians and Greek foreign policy, has been far from harmonious. “All we wanted to do is seek clarification about a function Mr Tsiaras attended in Perth, at which FYROM’s honorary consul to Australia, Zoran Kjoseski, was purportedly present. Further, there were certain pertinent issues upon which we wished to seek his advice. Quite frankly, Mr Tsiaras’ attitude is mystifying. On the one hand he talks about openness, accountability and inclusiveness and on the other hand he appears to summarily dismiss important Greek-Australian organisations who have taken upon themselves the burden of furthering Greece’s interests. This is not the type of behaviour one would expect from a member of parliament who is supposedly visiting us in order to bring about cohesion and resolve key issues,” a prominent member of the Greek community who attended commented. “It certainly sends the wrong message to our community and has a detrimental effect on those members of the younger generations who want to get involved.” The timing of Greek Deputy Foreign Minister Tsiaras visit to Australia in view of the Greek financial crisis, along with his controversial promotion of the defunct Council of Greeks Abroad, has already been met with scepticism within the Greek-Australian community. “The political culture of Australia is much more subtle and critical than perhaps what we were used to in our homeland,” one source commented. “Populism and grand-standing are not given much credence here. Greek politicians need to understand that unless their approach to Greek-Australian institutions is a respectful and nuanced one, their credibility will suffer.”last_img read more

Leno hopes Arsenal can win more away matches

first_imgThe Gunners goalkeeper knows that the only way their team will do great things is if they can also win while visiting others.In the 2018-2019 English Premier League season so far, Arsenal has only won four of 12 away matches.This is a big contrast on what has happened at Emirates Stadium, where the Gunners have gotten a victory in 10 of 13 games.And for goalkeeper Bernd Leno, the only way Arsenal can aim high, is if it starts winning away matches.“I think the game started very badly, with a goal. And it ended with a goal for Man City and I think in the first half we played very good and we conceded two easy goals,” he told the club’s official website.“In the second half, we didn’t have the power to play against them because they had the ball all the time and we were running.”“We fought until the end but today, Manchester City did a very good job,” he added.“Yes, of course. It was very hard. But the reaction of the team was brilliant.”“We scored the goal from a corner and I think it was the worst time to concede the second goal, just before half-time,” he commented.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.“Yes, of course. We need wins like today, to go back to the top four but I think we are still in a good position to go to the top four.”“We still have big games and I think we need more away wins because at home we play very good,” he explained.“We win many games at home, but I think to go into the top four again we need more away wins.”German keeper Leno is in his first season with the Gunners after being transferred to the English Premier League from the German Bundesliga club Bayer Leverkusen.He was an important piece of the U17, U18, U19, and U21 Nationalmannschaft but has had a difficult time to play first-team football in the senior squad.Here come the teams! 🙌🔵 🆚 🔴#MCIARS pic.twitter.com/tYcX8jef6U— Arsenal FC (@Arsenal) February 3, 2019last_img read more

This video of Rohit Sharma doting on his daughter before IPL Final

first_imgRohit Sharma became a father to Samaira last yearRohit Sharma TwitterRohit Sharma is one of the best batsmen in limited-overs cricket and the captain of Mumbai Indians. But apart from this, the Mumbai cricketer also happens to be a doting father who is not hesitant to show his love for his newly-born daughter Samaira.With a day to go for the IPL Final, Rohit Sharma again took time off to play with his daughter. The official Twitter handle of his team Mumbai Indians, put out a video where the young father is showering his affection on Samaira. Daddy Ro reporting on duty ✅?#OneFamily #CricketMeriJaan #MumbaiIndians #MIvCSK @ImRo45 @ritssajdeh pic.twitter.com/0NWvqLtAha— Mumbai Indians (@mipaltan) May 11, 2019Rohit Sharma playing with his daughterTwitter/Mumbai IndiansThis is not the first time that the India opener has been seen on Twitter in this role. Earlier in the season also, he posted a video of himself giving Spanish lessons to his daughter. After his team had won the first qualifier of the ongoing season of IPL, he had posted a picture of himself and his wife sitting on the Wankhede outfield with their daughter. The text accompanying the photograph said: “At the end, this is what matters the most.”Rohit, who is 32 years old, got married in December 2015 to Ritika Sajdeh and the couple became parents in December last year. His wife has been seen often at stadiums supporting her husband while the whole family has been together during most of the season.It has become common among Indian cricketers of current generation to have their families with them and their spouses and partners present at the stadium. It is a sea change from earlier generations of cricketers who were rather discreet about showing their emotions in public.Both Sharma and India captain Virat Kohli have acknowledged their wives on field as well after getting to landmarks. While that may draw a mixed response from people used to watching the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid maintain stoicism about their personal feelings, the pictures and videos of Rohit Sharma with his cute daughter are bound to melt the heart of most sensitive people.last_img read more

Magnesium + Oxygen + Water + Salt + Additive = Direct Current Credit: MagPower Systems, Inc The MAFC (magnesium-air fuel cell) has the electrolyte versatility of using a common saline (salt) solution or ocean water. The performance capabilities of the MAFC can be enhanced through the addition of MagPower’s hydrogen inhibitors.According to MagPower Systems, by using hydrogen inhibitors the MAFC has increased power efficiency, lower cell resistance, and the reduction or elimination of pressure and/or volume increase due to hydrogen gassing resulting in smaller metal-air fuel cells, and batteries.Magnesium is highly reactive and stores a lot of energy. Researchers are now devising ways to extract energy from magnesium in a more controlled method. (PhysOrg.com) — There is enough magnesium to meet the world’s energy needs for the next 300,000 years, says Dr. Takashi Yabe of the Tokyo Institute of Technology. Citation: Magnesium: Alternative Power Source (2010, April 23) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2010-04-magnesium-alternative-power-source.html Magnesium is abundant in the world; however the production of magnesium is neither cheap or clean. There are various ways of extracting magnesium, ranging from an electrolytic process to high temperature method called the Pidgeon process.Dr. Yabe has devised a high temperature solution by concentrating solar collectors and a solar-pump laser to reach a temperature of 3,700 degrees centigrade. This high heat method is used to burn magnesium oxide extracted from seawater. The solar-pumped laser is necessary to help obtain this high temperature because concentrated solar energy alone would not be enough to generate 3,700 degrees C. Engineers at MagPower have developed a metal-air cell that uses water and ambient air to react with a magnesium anode, to generate electricity. A magnesium based version of the lithium-ion rechargeable cell has been created by Dr. Doron Aurbach at Bar-Ilan University in Israel. © 2010 PhysOrg.comlast_img read more

first_img November 18, 2011 — IMIX Americas Inc. will introduce three state-of-the-art digital detectors along with its expanded line of integrated digital radiography (DR) products at RSNA 2011. The event will take place Nov. 27 – Dec. 2 at McCormick Place Convention Center in Chicago.The company’s new cassette-size digital detectors include two Slimline HD2 panels, which utilize direct conversion technology to produce ultra-high resolution images. The IMIX X Wireless panel provides the benefits of DR in a lightweight cable-free cassette.All three detectors overcome the practical drawbacks associated with other digital cassettes, including weight, durability, image quality, dose and affordability.The Slimline HD2 series, available in 35 x 43 (cm) and 43 x 43 (cm) tethered panels, utilizes amorphous selenium direct conversion; this process creates an X-ray image without scattering light and delivers high spatial frequency and image quality. This technology also comes in a 43 x 43 (cm) fixed detector.The IMIX X Wireless is one of the industry’s lightest-weight wireless digital detectors at 6.3 lbs. It is durably built with a rigid case and double-glass structure to prevent damage by shock or load. Its ISO 4090-compliant cassette size fits any existing wall stand or bucky tray.IMIX has fully integrated the detectors into its Scandinavian-designed DR systems, which have been updated to optimize ergonomics, simplicity, functionality and operational ease-of-use. Enhancements include a touchscreen, remote control and a detector encasement with enclosure. The encasement provides added convenience and safety by permitting the 14×17 detector to rotate from landscape to portrait without being removed. In addition to its fixed, tethered and wireless imaging technology, IMIX has expanded its system configurations. The company’s product line now incorporates a comprehensive selection of floor and wall-mounted stands, tables, and positioning devices; they can be sold as complete DR systems or as DR-ready systems that can be easily upgraded with any of IMIX’s digital detectors.IMIX will display in booth #1828, Lakeside Hall D at RSNA 2011.For more information: www.imixadr.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | November 18, 2011 IMIX Unveils Three Cassette-Sized Digital Imaging Detectors at RSNA 2011 News | Digital Radiography (DR) | July 23, 2019 Konica Minolta and Shimadzu to Co-market Dynamic Digital Radiography in the U.S. Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. along with Shimadzu Medical Systems USA announced a collaborative agreement to… read more Feature | Digital Radiography (DR) | July 19, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr DR Advances Promote Imaging of Whole Spine Recent advances in… read more News | Digital Radiography (DR) | May 29, 2019 Dynamic Digital Radiography Used to Assess Undifferentiated Dyspnea A clinical study presented at the American Thoracic Society (ATS) 2019 annual meeting, May 17-22 in Dallas, described… read more Technology | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 Shimadzu Medical Systems Receives FDA 510(k) for FluoroSpeed X1 RF System Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu Corp., announced they have received U.S. Food and Drug… read more News | Digital Radiography (DR) | June 28, 2019 Springfield Clinic Deploys 17 Carestream Digital X-ray Systems Springfield Clinic implemented 14 Carestream DRX-Evolu read more News | Artificial Intelligence | June 03, 2019 SIIM and ACR Host Machine Learning Challenge for Pneumothorax Detection and Localization The Society for Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) are collaborating… read more Advances in long-length digital radiography are creating opportunities for visualization during spinal surgery, as well as pre- and post-operatively.

Birds fall victim to far from beautiful Easter custom

first_imgBirdlife Cyprus condemned on Wednesday an Easter custom from Omodos where some residents shoot birds flying over the rooftops.Cyprus has many beautiful Easter traditions, the group said, but many birds are the victims “of a particular custom in a particular village that is far from ‘beautiful’”.“The village in question is Omodos, picturesque and popular with visitors from within and beyond Cyprus. But come Tuesday after Easter every year, some residents take to the narrow lanes of the mountain village, shotguns in hand, and shoot birds flying over the rooftops,” it said.It added that some Omodos residents simply shoot in the air, while many take aim at swallows, house martins, common swifts, great tits and other birds breeding in the village. “None of the birds targeted is a legitimate game species, while the hunting law also prohibits shooting outright, both during the spring and in built-up areas,” it said.BirdLife Cyprus said that it has tried to contact the village authorities and has raised this issue with the competent authorities, calling for action to stop this illegal bird killing in the name of ‘custom’.The group called on the community’s local authority, the police and the Game and Fauna Service to take the necessary measures to combat this illegal activity. “Stop the illegal shooting of birds outside the hunting season and during the breeding season, something that is a wildlife crime, and in a residential area, as it puts public safety in danger”.BirdLife Cyprus is also calling on the public to report any illegal bird shooting and killing incidents to the competent authorities.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppGet Maximum Privacy with Minimum EffortFigLeaf Beta AppUndoTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoTotal Battle – Online Strategy GameIf You’re PC User This Strategy Game Is A Must-Have!Total Battle – Online Strategy GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoTwo arrested in connection with attempted murderUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
