Full Text of Speech of King Mohammed VI Before Pope Francis

Here follows the full text of the speech:“Praise be to God,May peace and blessings be upon the Prophet, His Kith and Kin Your Holiness,Your Excellencies,Ladies and Gentlemen,This is an exceptional day for two reasons. It is exceptional because of the visit of His Holiness Pope Francis. It is also exceptional because it reminds me of the historical visit the late Pope John Paul II paid to Morocco.Today’s visit falls within the framework of the longstanding relations between Morocco and the Vatican.I was keen to make sure the place and the date of the visit reflect the symbolic depth, the historical significance and the civilizational importance of this Meeting.The place where we are meeting today is an embodiment of openness, passage and cross-cultural fertilization; it is, in itself, a symbol of balance and harmony.Aptly located where the Bouregreg River meets the Atlantic Ocean, this place is aligned with the Al-Koutoubia Mosque in Marrakech and with the Giralda in Seville – it constitutes a spiritual, architectural and cultural link between Africa and Europe.I also wanted this visit to coincide with the holy month of Rajab – a month that witnessed one of the most iconic episodes in the history of Islam and Christianity.It was in this month that, at the behest of Prophet Muhammad – may Peace and Blessings be upon Him – Muslims, fleeing persecution, left Mecca to take refuge with the Negus, the Christian King of Abyssinia.This was the first welcoming, during which Islam and Christianity made acquaintance with each other.Read Also: Days Before Visit, Pope Francis Sends Message to King Mohammed VIToday, we are commemorating that act of getting to know each other, for the sake of the future and that of the coming generations.Your Holiness,Your Excellencies,Ladies and Gentlemen,Your Holiness’s visit to Morocco is taking place at a time when the Community of Nations – just like that of all Believers – is facing a number of challenges.We need to tackle these new ills which feed on treachery as much as on the instrumentalization of the Divine Message by advocating the denial of the Other and similar wicked theories.In a world in search of direction, the Kingdom of Morocco has never stopped proclaiming, teaching and experiencing, on a daily basis, Brotherhood among the Sons of Abraham. This is a founding pillar of the exceptionally rich diversity underpinning Moroccan civilization.The symbiotic relationship uniting Moroccans – beyond faiths – is an eloquent example in this regard.This symbiosis is a fact of life in my country. It is reflected by the mosques, churches and synagogues which have coexisted in the cities of the Kingdom since time immemorial.As King of Morocco and Commander of the Faithful, I am the Guarantor of the free practice of religion. I am Commander of all believers.And, as Commander of the Faithful, I cannot speak of the Land of Islam, as if only Muslims lived there. I am keen to ensure freedom to practise the religions of the Book and I am the guarantor of that freedom. I protect Moroccan Jews as well as Christians from other countries, who are living in Morocco.Your Holiness,Your Excellencies,Ladies and Gentlemen,I have never ceased to seek God – beyond silence, beyond words and beyond the comfort of dogmas – so that our religions may remain crucial, illuminating bridges, and so that the lessons and messages of the Islamic enlightenment may live on.Given the reality of today’s world, it is clear the dialogue between the Abrahamic religions is insufficient. At a time when paradigms are shifting everywhere and concern all matters, inter-religious dialogue must evolve too.The dialogue centered on tolerance has been going on for a long time now; and yet, it has not achieved its goal. The three Abrahamic religions were not created to be tolerant of one another out of some unavoidable fate, or out of courtesy to one another.The reason they exist is to open up to one another and to know one another, so as to do one another good:“O mankind! We created you from a single (pair) of a male and a female, and made you into nations and tribes, that you may know each other (not that you may despise (each other). Verily the most honoured of you in the sight of Allah is (he who is) the most righteous of you”. The Word of God is Truth.Read Also: ‘The Need Is High:’ The Rabat Migrant Center Pope Francis Will VisitRadicalism – whether it is motivated by religion or not – is due to failure to know one another, to ignorance of the other, and to ignorance pure and simple.Knowing one another eliminates radicalism – all types of radicalism. Knowing one another is precisely what is going to help us rise to the challenges of our tormented times.“To each among you have we prescribed a law and an open way. If Allah had so willed, He would have made you a single people, but (His plan is) to test you in what He has given you: so strive as in a race in all virtues”. The Word of God is Truth.To tackle radicalism, the solution is neither military nor financial; that solution has but one name: Education.My plea for education is an indictment of ignorance. It is binary conceptions and the fact of not knowing one another well enough that are threatening our civilizations; it is certainly not religion.That is why, as Commander of the Faithful, I am advocating today that we give back to religion its rightful place in education.That is why I cannot speak to these young people without warning them against the phenomena of radicalization and of stepping into violence.What all terrorists have in common is not religion, but rather ignorance of religion.Today, religion should no longer be an alibi for ignorant people, for ignorance or for intolerance.That is because religion is Light; religion is Knowledge; religion is Wisdom. And because religion is Peace, it calls for diverting the energy spent on weapons and other misguided races towards loftier pursuits.For this reason, I set up the Mohammed VI Ulema Foundation.I have also responded favorably to requests from several African and European countries to take young people from these nations into the Mohammed VI Institute for the training of imams and male and female religious guides.Your Holiness,Your Excellencies,Ladies and Gentlemen,In my capacity as Commander of the Faithful, I believe, just like the Holy Father, in an active spirituality that seeks to serve the common good.Spirituality is not an end in itself. Our faith translates into concrete actions. It teaches us to love our fellow human beings and to help them.One fact is essential: God forgives. “God is Oft-forgiving, Most Merciful”. And since God is mercy, generosity and kindness are at the center of my action.Because God is love, I have tried to make sure my reign is characterized by closeness to citizens as well as by assistance to the poorest and most vulnerable people.That is the spirit of the National Initiative for Human Development (INDH) which I launched 14 years ago to improve the lives of people in precarious or fragile situations, integrate those who are excluded, put a roof over the heads of the homeless and kindle faith in a dignified future.That is also the philosophy behind the immigration and asylum policy which I have instituted and which is fundamentally based on solidarity.It is in line with the Marrakech Compact, which the international community adopted on 10 December 2018.Your Holiness,Your Excellencies,Ladies and Gentlemen,Our meeting attests to a mutually held belief that the values of monotheism contribute to rationalization, to reconciliation and to improving the world order.As Commander of the Faithful, and just like Your Holiness, I am against all forms of indifference and I wish, in this respect, to salute the courage of the Leaders who do not shy away from the defining questions of our time.I have been following with interest and appreciation Your Holiness’s efforts to serve peace in the world, as well as your regular calls to promote education and dialogue, to end violence, to combat poverty and corruption, to tackle climate change – to fight the ills plaguing human societies.As Commander of the Faithful and as Holy Father, we are called upon to be both idealistic and pragmatic, to be realistic and to set an example.Our messages do not concern our time only; they are eternal. They call upon people to embrace the values of moderation, to fulfil the imperatives of knowing one another and to raise awareness of otherness.By doing this, Your Holiness, you and I “will speak with one voice” – a voice which is not to be reduced to a mere consensus based on compromise.I see this – in my daily life – as a common message conveyed by Muslims, Christians and Jews to all of humankind.That is precisely what has brought us together today and what should unite us in the future.Wassalamu alaikum warahmatullah wabarakatuh”. read more


Singapore says cant impose a solution

Shanmugam said this when he met President Mahinda Rajapaksa on Saturday, on the third and final day of his official visit to the country, Channel News Asia reported. Singapore’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs (MFA) said that during their meeting, Shanmugam told President Rajapaksa that Singapore was happy to see that peace had returned to Sri Lanka. He also said that during his visit to Trincomale and Jaffna, he saw the significant progress in physical reconstruction in the areas that he visited.He also reiterated Singapore’s offer of technical assistance, which Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong had made during President Rajapaksa’s state visit to Singapore in February this year. It focuses on areas of human resource development and economic development, which are Sri Lanka’s current priorities.MFA said President Rajapaksa expressed his appreciation for Singapore’s offer to assist Sri Lanka in its development.He shared with Shanmugam the ongoing efforts made by the central and provincial governments towards post-conflict development. Singapore says that while reconciliation cannot be imposed from the outside, well-wishers of Sri Lanka look forward to an inclusive process that would include addressing the emotive sentiments of people affected by the decade of conflict.The Singapore Minister for Foreign Affairs and Law K Shanmugam says Singapore is committed to strengthening bilateral ties and assisting Sri Lanka as it embarks on reconstruction and genuine national reconciliation. These include the restoration of basic infrastructure and services in the worst-affected areas in the northern province of Sri Lanka. read more


UNICEF brings critical health education supplies to isolated Palestinians in Gaza

“Reaching the un-reached is a key element in ensuring that all children’s rights are met,” UNICEF Special Representative in the Palestinian Territory Dan Rohrmann said of the deliveries to the Al-Mawasi enclave. “Two thousand children in one of the most difficult to reach areas will have essential supplies to learn, to stay healthy and to be able to play.”The first shipment, the first of many to follow over coming days, included generators for two schools that will allow students to continue learning during frequent power cuts, infant delivery kits sufficient to last for four months for all normal and complex deliveries, and health kits covering the needs of all children and families for six months. Two refrigerators were also delivered.In addition, UNICEF distributed water kits to ensure 500 families have access to safe water during closures. Other items included educational supplies for 800 students along with uniforms, school bags and teaching aids used during and outside school hours.The assistance was made possible through the generous support of many donors, including, most recently, the Governments of the Netherlands, Spain, and Sweden, and the Canadian International Development Agency (CIDA).Al Mawasi, one kilometre wide and 14 kilometres long, was once an agricultural and fishing community but has become almost inaccessible over four years of violence in the Gaza Strip. Many families live in shacks, no sewage or water networks are currently available and electricity supply is spotty at best. Restrictions on movement mean that children’s right to education and health is severely restricted. read more


EIRICH on economical beneficiation of tailings with contained ore

first_imgIn flotation methods, eg for the recovery of ores, fine materials accumulate with a mineral content that for decades was too low for further beneficiation to be performed in a cost-effective manner. The materials were deposited in tailing ponds or in waste dumps, where in many cases millions of tonnes accumulated over the years. Today – in a time when raw materials are scarce and high-quality ore is increasingly rare – beneficiation of the dumped gangue materials often makes commercial sense, particularly as they often represent an ecological risk. This can be done cost-effectively with the aid of EIRICH mixers.Ores and other useful minerals occur in nature almost entirely in a contaminated form. For use as a raw material, the gangue needs to be separated. Since the start of the 20th century, the flotation method has been the primary way to extract the raw materials. The substances that are to be separated are initially ground down to a size that is small enough so that the individual components exist as physically separate grains. The mixture is then suspended in an aqueous solution and aerated with a turbulent gas flow. Under the addition of auxiliary materials, it is then possible to bind mineral granules to gas bubbles, which then rise to the surface where they can be skimmed off as froth. The other particles (referred to as the flotation tails) remain in the turbid slurry or form a sediment at the bottom of the flotation cell and are then pumped for disposal into so-called tailing mounds. The rock that accumulates during mining and the rock that is co-extracted in the process, which is separated out during beneficiation, forms these mounds.In the past, beneficiation of dumped fine tailings, which often represent a risk for the environment, was often not cost-effective. Even mechanical dewatering was too complex and expensive. “Now though, high-performance mixing technology makes possible cost-effective beneficiation of flotation tailings that still contain a significant level of usable minerals – and this even with varying moisture contents. In order to extract the minerals, the gangue materials usually need to be mixed with one or more other materials and granulated. Suitable mixing and granulation technology is required for this.”“The EIRICH mixer has proved itself in countless applications. It has been in use for decades in a wide range of industries for all kinds of mixing and granulating tasks, particularly for applications demanding a high quality of mix. The unique working principle of this mixer normally enables very advantageous process control. Thanks to the EIRICH technology, it is possible to process materials of very different types and consistencies without any problems, for example in order to produce granulates from slurries under the addition of dry materials. In the process, agglomerates are disintegrated in the best possible way so that the end product offers an excellent quality of mix, even if auxiliary substances such as chemicals are added in the ppm range. The good self-cleaning effects and the system-related low wear of the mixer are often important aspects.”“In addition to mixers that operate on a batch basis, today we also see use of mixers that operate continuously. For example, it has been shown in the processing of tailing mounds from magnesite production that these mixers offer significant process and cost advantages. One of the advantages here is that – unlike in batch mode – there is no time needed for filling and emptying. In addition, smaller mixers with lower input power can be used.”“The system-related advantages of EIRICH mixing technology also come into their own for other recycling tasks, during waste processing, in landfill engineering and in the reprocessing of contaminated sites. Examples include the agglomeration of dust from steelworks for recirculation to the sintering conveyor or for addition to reduction processes, or for the agglomeration of converter dusts containing zinc for input into the Waelz process. Special mixer designs are used for the processing of contaminated soil or – in the form of so-called vacuum mixers – for the drying of paint/enamel sludge with explosion protection (spray can recycling). Heated mixers are available for special applications (up to 250°C).”Every mixer is specially designed for the relevant purpose. The company’s internal test centres are available all around the world for the performance of customer trials so that process parameters can be defined. EIRICH can also supply a suitable rental mixers for subsequent upscaling tests, allowing the cost-effectiveness of the preparation process to be tested at a larger scale.last_img read more

Six detained air force officers caused significant tension for Mugabes visit to

first_imgIt would appear that UK is attempting to use Mugabe’s Irish visit to exert maximum leverage.Apparently Mugabe responded ‘fiercely’ to British High Commissioner… We are advising the Taoiseach to be very cautious in way in which he approaches subject… Photos: Zimbabwe goes to the polls amid fears of vote-rigging>‘If you lose you must surrender’: Mugabe vows to step down if he loses election> THERE WAS A considerable amount of correspondence between departments and the British Government in the run up to the state visit of Zimbabwean Prime Minister Robert Mugabe in 1983.Discussions about whether Taoiseach Garret Fitzgerald should bring up the case of six detained Zimbabwe Air Force officers – two of which had Irish connections – was a hot topic.Air ForceIn 1982 a series of explosions at Thornhill Air base in Zimbabwe resulted in 12 aircraft being destroyed . Shortly after incident, several air officers were detained under new emergency powers in relation in connection with the sabotage operation.Some were released and some were tried for sabotage of the aircraft. However in August 1983, six air crew were acquitted by the High Court in Zimbabwe, but they continued to be detained, with no retrial.Throughout the trial it had been alleged that some of the men had undergone torture and were given electric shock.State papers reveal that prior to Mugabe’s visit, the Department of Justice received reports that Wing Commander Peter Briscoe and Wing Commander John Cox and possibly three other air crew were entitled to Irish citizenship.The brother of Briscoe wrote to the Irish consul in South Africa and requested that an Irish passport be issued to his brother upon his release from prison stating that they would be “indebted” if this was possible.Taoiseach Garret Fitzgerald replied stating there was no “political objection” to an Irish passport being issued to him upon his acquittal. View the letter here, here and here.The state documents go on to state that the British Embassy had got in touch with the Department of Justice and suggested that the Irish Government “express concerns to Prime Minister Mugabe about the case during his official visit”.BritainDespite it being stated by the news wires that Ireland had agreed to raise the issue, a government document reveals that there were concerns about media reports that the Irish Government “did not, repeat not, say that we would raise issue” adding that they had merely indicated that it was possible it might arise.The document goes on to state:center_img The document can be seen below:Another state document reveals that the incident and whether to bring it up with Mugabe was again a topic of discussion, with a note stating that Government may need to intervene if the UK’s Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher asked Taoiseach Garret Fitzgerald to take up the matter with Mugabe.When Mugabe did visit, Taoiseach Fitzgerald did raise the matter of the detained air crew with Mugabe. The Department of Foreign Affairs said the issue was “couched very carefully” so as not to upset the Zimbabwe leader.The state visit was fraught with tension before Mugabe arrived and during the visit, as during a state banquet for Mugabe, FitzGerald took too long to pick the dinner’s wine and more than 30 unaccounted for guests turned up, in a dinner party that was planned right down to the detail, as seen with this seating arrangement for the night.last_img read more

Romney Perry spar over job creation at GOP debate

first_imgSIMI VALLEY, Calif. — Quick to tangle, Republican presidential rivals Rick Perry and Mitt Romney sparred vigorously over job creation and Social Security on Wednesday night in a feisty campaign debate that marked a contentious new turn in the race to pick a 2012 challenger to President Barack Obama.Far more than in earlier GOP debates this summer, the candidates mixed it up in their first face-off since Perry entered the race and almost instantly overtook Romney as front-runner in opinion polls. Those two — as well as other contenders on stage — sniped at one another, contradicted allegations and interrupted media questioners to demand opportunities to take each other on.“Michael Dukakis created jobs three times faster than you did, Mitt,” Perry jabbed in the debate’s opening moments, referring to one of Romney’s Democratic predecessors as governor of Massachusetts. “As a matter of fact, George Bush and his predecessors created jobs at a faster rate than you did,” Romney shot back at Perry, the 10-year incumbent Texas governor.The debate was the first of three in as many weeks, at a time when the economy is struggling, unemployment is seemingly stuck at 9.1 percent and Obama’s popularity is sinking in the polls — all events that could make the GOP nomination worth more than it appeared only a few months ago.last_img read more


Budget 2019 Government may cut taxes on biz hike spending for

first_imgPrime Minister Narendra Modi’s government on Friday will unveil a budget that is expected to cut taxes on business and raise spending in a bid to shore up consumption and faltering economic growth. Analysts say Modi, boosted by a sweeping election victory, hopes to use the budget to restart reforms and deal with a series of economic woes. In January-March, annual growth slumped to 5.8%, the slowest pace in 20 quarters. Growth for the financial year that ended in March was 6.8%, also a five-year low, and indicators such as plummeting industrial output and automobile sales have stoked fears of a deeper slowdown. Also Read – This is why Denmark, Sweden and Germany are considering a meat tax Advertise With Us A shortfall in monsoon rains, pivotal for the farm sector that employs nearly half of India’s workers, has increased concerns of rural distress and strengthened the case for intervention, a leader of Modi’s ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) said. “The focus of the budget will be to boost domestic consumption, address the rural crisis and support small manufacturers,” Gopal Krishna Agarwal, BJP’s economic affairs spokesman, told Reuters. Also Read – Judge refuses to halt UK Parliament suspension Advertise With Us Shilan Shah at Capital Economics in Singapore said in a note “Given the recent economic slowdown, the finance minister is likely to announce more accommodative tax and spending measures.” In February, then-Finance Minister Piyush Goyal presented an interim budget for the year beginning April 1, to maintain government functions while a weeks-long election was under way. Advertise With Us BIG INVESTMENT PLANS On Friday, new minister Nirmala Sitharaman will present a full-year budget that Agarwal said could lower corporate taxes for small and medium-sized businesses as well as personal ones to revive consumption by the middle class that gave Modi a second term, while withdrawing some tax exemptions. In 2018, Indian government reduced the corporate tax rate to 25% from 30% for companies with annual turnover of 2.5 billion Indian rupees ($36.3 million) or less. Following election promises, the government could present a plan for investing up to 100 trillion rupees ($1.45 trillion) on highways, railways and ports while budgeting another 25 trillion rupees for increasing farm productivity over five years, BJP officials said. To meet the funds required for all that, Sitharaman may need to increase February’s 3.4% target for fiscal deficit to gross domestic product to 3.6%, said a senior government official. A Reuters poll showed economists expected a 3.5% target. Sitharaman is also likely to seek a higher dividend from the central bank, draw up plans to raise funds from a 5G telecom auction and propose more privatisation, sources said. After becoming prime minister in 2014, Modi improved public finances, trimming the fiscal deficit to 3.4% from 4.5% in 2013/14, mostly through cuts in subsidies and higher retail taxes on fuel. However, he is now under pressure to loosen the purse strings to meet election promises and jack up the growth rate. FALLING RURAL DEMAND “A large part of the economy is facing a recession with a fall in rural demand and private investments,” said Ashwani Mahajan, chief of the economic wing of the Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh, the ideological parent of Modi’s ruling group. “It is the right time to expand the fiscal deficit up to 4% of GDP,” he said adding the budget could provide tax incentives for food processing, logistics and small businesses as well as affordable housing. Private investment in India rose an annual 7.2% in January-March, down from 8.4% the previous quarter. Capital investment growth slowed to 3.6% from 10.6%. Economists expect spending to rise as the government plans to expand cash benefits to farmers and inject more funds into state-run banks – saddled with nearly $150 billion stressed assets – to support lending. Modi has set an ambitious target of turning India into a $5 trillion in the next five years from $2.7 trillion, which will require an annual growth rate of over 10%, economists said. But that will require a big second wave of reforms that Modi shied from during his first term, economists say. To unlock potential and growth more robustly, in their view, India needs to make land acquisition easier and amend labour laws that make hiring and firing of workers difficult. BJP’s Agarwal says the budget speech “will lay a roadmap of economic reforms for the next five years, with an objective of boosting economic growth.”last_img read more

A Trip To Galveston Offers More Than Just A Beach

first_img Share Courtesy The Galveston Island Convention & Visitors BureauGalveston Island Historic Pleasure Entrance.The first question to ask yourself when planning a trip to Galveston: Do you want to stay on the seawall or the famous Strand?If you opt for the seawall, historic Hotel Galvez is a beautiful and convenient option with a great pool. If you’d rather be in the middle of the hustle & bustle of the downtown Strand, opt for The Quarters. For a big family, it offers plenty of room with a 2-bedroom plus a fold-out sofa and a full kitchen.Right next door to The Quarters is Zipp E-Bikes where you can rent electric bikes. It’s a super fun way to see the town. It’s only a mile to take the 19th Street bike lane to the seawall or join in on their Ebike Island Adventure Tour where you can see mansions on Broadway, old forts, and the Galveston ship channel.For some good old-fashioned fun, take your family on a stroll along the Galveston Island Historic Pleasure Pier. The nostalgically-themed oceanside amusement park provides hours of entertainment. Try your hand along the Midway with games like Ring Toss, Lucky Duck and Balloon Pop. Ride the 100-foot tall Galaxy Wheel while colorful LED lights create a spectacular display. For thrill-seekers, the Pirate’s Plunge log ride that drops 40 feet and the 52 miles-per-hour Iron Shark Roller Coaster are not to be missed. Bumper cars, the teacup ride, and a carousel are available for younger children.From penguins to sharks to free-roaming monkeys, Moody Gardens has it all. Enjoy an authentic rainforest with macaws, sloths, and other endangered animals. Touch the belly of a stingray at the aquarium or take an hour-long cruise aboard a replica of an 1800s paddlewheel boat. And, when it’s hot outside, the 4D movie might be just what you need.You’re going to get really hungry with all this activity. When you’re at Pleasure Pier or on the seawall, dine at BLVD Seafood. Start with the crabby crab cake or share a bowl of seafood gumbo. Then move on to the Gulf Coast flat fish stack or try a Seafood Sampler or the Flagship shrimp & grits.If you’re looking for a great dinner closer to The Strand, you’ll love Olympia Grill on Pier 21. This classy waterside restaurant blends a fusion of Mediterranean and seafood. For an entree, try the mini combo pitas- gyro, chicken, and shrimp. You can also indulge in other Greek faves like falafel and lamb.Did you know there are more shades of green than any other color? That is one of the fun facts families learn during an outing with Artist Boat. It’s a nonprofit that combines outdoor adventure, art, and science to promote environmental awareness and preservation. A three-hour long kayak adventure through the Coastal Heritage Preserve includes not only a lesson on coastal prairies, but also a stop for a watercolor lesson, and painting time.Want to improve your sandcastle building game? If so, take some lessons from the professionals. Galveston is hosting free sandcastle building lessons every Saturday morning until August 18th near the Steward Beach Pavillion.And, in Galveston, fireworks are not just for the Fourth of July. Every Sunday through early September, the Galveston Island Park Board will provide a magnificent firework display off the Seawall for visitors.You can learn more about these and other Texas destinations in the travel issue of Texas Lifestyle magazine.last_img read more

Microsoft improves Delivery Optimization for Windows Insiders

first_imgMicrosoft improves Delivery Optimization for Windows Insiders by Martin Brinkmann on August 31, 2016 in Windows – 5 commentsMicrosoft released a new Windows Insider build just a moment ago that brings PCs running on the Fast Ring to Windows 10 Build 14915.The new version fixes a couple of issues such as not being able to shut down the PC using Start > Shutdown, changing the update Ring, or various crashes that users experienced when using the Settings application.Probably the biggest change of them all is the improvement of Delivery Optimization for Windows Insiders.Delivery Optimization is a new feature for Windows 10, introduced with the November 2015 update, that uses peer to peer technology to download and distribute Windows updates and app updates.So, if your PC requests an update, it may check PCs in the same computer network first or even on the Internet, and download the updates or part of them from those PCs instead of Microsoft.Consequently, it means that updates will also be uploaded to other PCs requesting them.Microsoft notes that it has seen a 30% to 50% reduction in bandwidth usage in computer networks if multiple PCs are running Windows 10.The new Delivery Optimization feature that Microsoft released today is enabled by default.The feature works similar to how Delivery Optimization works on regular versions of Windows 10, but includes Insider builds among other things that get delivered.Starting today, Windows Insiders that have Delivery Optimization enabled will be able to download new Insider Preview builds, OS updates, and app updates from other PCs on their local network as well as from other PCs on the Internet.This appears to be the only difference to how the system worked before. If you check previous versions of Windows 10 on the Insider channel, you will notice that Delivery Optimization is enabled there as well.Rather than downloading an entire file from one machine, Delivery Optimization breaks the download into small pieces and uses what is assessed as the fastest, most reliable source for each piece of the file. Delivery Optimization is also mindful of local disk usage, use of cellular networks, battery life, and other network activity.It is also integrated with and builds on the existing security measures in Windows Update and Windows Store to check the authenticity of each file downloaded from other PCs. Particularly for PCs with challenging network conditions, this is designed to provide a better and more reliable download experience.You may turn off Delivery Optimization by following these steps:Tap on Windows-I to open the Settings application.Select Update & Security > Windows Update > Advanced Options > Choose how updates are delivered.There you find an on/off switch for the feature.Now Read: Windows 10 Delivery Optimization explainedSummaryArticle NameMicrosoft improves Delivery Optimization for Windows InsidersDescriptionMicrosoft released a new Windows 10 Insider build today that improves how the Delivery Optimization feature of the operating system works.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more


Costa Rica top outperformer in 2016 Social Progress Index

The time has come, says La Nación Costa Rica marks International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women with calls for action World Bank: Zika will cost Latin America $3.5 billion in 2016 Costa Rica continues to prove that a country with a relatively low GDP can still offer its people a high quality of life, according to a recent study.The 2016 Social Progress Index, which tracks more than a dozen non-economic indicators in countries around the world, found that Costa Rica’s social progress is on par with most of Western Europe, despite having a per capita GDP closer to developing economies like Thailand, the Dominican Republic and China.The social progress score is divided into three general categories: basic human needs, foundations of wellbeing and opportunity. A higher per capita GDP generally correlates with a higher quality of life. But researchers found that Costa Rica outperforms countries like the United Arab Emirates, which has a per capita GDP of $64,563 compared to Costa Rica’s $14,232, on social progress indicators. Costa Rica overachieved relative to its per capita GDP more than any other country surveyed.Finland topped the social progress list, followed by Canada and Denmark. Costa Rica ranked 28th globally and second in Latin America and the Caribbean, just a few spots below Chile at 25th. The United States came in 19th place.Costa Rica scored well on nutrition, basic medical care, access to basic knowledge and personal rights. The report recommended improvements in personal safety, access to higher education, and health and wellness, especially obesity.Michael Green, the executive director of the Washington-based, nonprofit Social Progress Imperative, which releases the report, stressed that the social progress index is not a happiness index.“There’s been a lot of interest lately in these happiness indices, but what do you do with that information?” Green asked. “Eat more bacon? Watch more Borgen? We’re looking to tease apart what makes a society good to build a better one.”This is where a country like Costa Rica could offer lessons for other countries. Costa Rica stands out for going beyond meeting basic needs to guaranteeing more delicate, intangible goods like political rights, tolerance and personal freedoms.Costa Rica’s historical commitment to education and health care, and its abolition of the military are things that other countries in Costa Rica’s income group, including Brazil, China, Dominican Republic, South Africa and Thailand, could learn from, Green said.Improving social progress in these areas would require longterm political commitment from a country’s leaders. “This stuff takes time to build up,” he said.Almost one-third of the countries that performed significantly better on social progress than other similar-income countries were in Latin America and the Caribbean: Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Uruguay, Jamaica, Chile and Brazil. Green said that the region’s commitment to social issues during the last 30 years has positioned it ahead of East Asia and Africa.Green said the social progress index is meant to compliment traditional indicators like GDP, not replace them. In the wake of the financial crisis, Green said it was clear that economic indicators were not sufficient tools to measure the quality of life in a country.He said the social progress index was designed as a tool to help policymakers identify priorities and track progress. Since its launch in 2014, the social progress index has been adopted by the European Commission and several Latin American countries, including Costa Rica, to track social progress on a national or municipal level.The results of Costa Rica’s 2016 canton-wide social progress index will be presented on July 5.“Costa Rica has so much to teach the world,” Green said. “Let’s hope that more countries turn out more like Costa Rica.”last_img read more
