Rabat – Can a joint Maghreb bid win the rights to host the 2030 World Cup? According to AMU Secretary-General Taieb Baccouche, the “Maghreb has a real card to play this time.”In an interview with pan-African magazine Jeune Afrique, the secretary-general of the Arab Maghreb Union (AMU) expressed his confidence that a Maghreb bid could give Africa a chance to host the World Cup for the second time.When asked about his support for a joint Maghreb bid, Baccouche said, “The idea was born after two observations: the official support of all the Maghreb for the Moroccan bid and the choice of a World Cup held by three countries in 2026.” “All this convinced us, at the general secretariat of the UMA, to coordinate a Maghreb bid for 2030 and to start the process,” he added.The Tunisian politician said that he discussed the joint Maghreb bid idea in the recent African Union summit in Nouakchott.“By 2030, there will be an Asian bid from China and probably one from three South American countries. The competition is serious, but Africa has not often had a chance.”Appealing to the 5 heads of stateOn Saturday, the AMU wrote on its official Facebook page that Baccouche wrote to the five leaders of AMU countries, urging them to submit a joint bid.In his letters to the heads of state, the secretary-general emphasized that the Maghreb countries could “learn from the Moroccan experience” and “the great enthusiasm expressed by the people of the Maghreb for the initiative taken by Morocco to submit another Maghreb bid in 2030,” wrote the AMU.According to Baccouche, a Maghreb bid would be more favorable to FIFA as it “prefers joint bids over single bids.”FIFA President Infantino announced earlier this month his support for joint bids. “I believe in joint bids because the World Cup is an enormous event.”Political tension could undermine a joint bidA joint bid between the Maghreb would require the countries to tackle tense political issues.Algerian Minister of Youth and Sports Mohamed Hattab said that his country was “ready to study a possible joint bid” with Morocco and Tunisia.However, a joint bid might be an “impossible mission” as the border between Morocco and Algeria is closed.Tunisia has also expressed its interest in bidding jointly with Morocco and Algeria.Morocco has shown great interest in hosting the World Cup, especially in its 2026 World Cup bid. Despite its defeat to United 2026, the North African country announced it would bid for the 2030 World Cup.But expressing interest will not be enough to fulfill the dream of hosting a World Cup. read more
TORONTO — The Toronto stock market closed higher Tuesday as oil settled at its highest point this year, pushing energy stocks up with it. The S&P/TSX composite index recovered from an early morning dip to close at 15,104.74, up 30.61 points, while the loonie gained 0.81 of a U.S. cent to 80.59 cents US.In New York, stock markets closed lower as record-high auto sales figures for May suggested that the U.S. Federal Reserve may soon hike interest rates.The Dow Jones industrial average lost 28.43 points to 18,011.94, the Nasdaq index fell 6.41 points to 5,076.52, and the S&P 500 declined 2.13 points to 2,109.60.On the commodity markets, the July crude contract was up $1.06 at US$61.26 a barrel and the August gold contract rose $5.70 to US$1,194.40 an ounce.The energy sector of the TSX advanced roughly one per cent, while the metals and mining sector advanced 3.4 per cent.Sadiq Adatia, chief investment officer at Sun Life Global Investments, says despite the recent rally in oil prices, he expects crude to decline to around the $50 a barrel mark over the next few months, before it climbs back up to $60 or $70.“People thought that supply has come down more than it has, because you’ve seen rig counts come down,” Adatia said.“But the truth is, supply really hasn’t diminished a whole lot. Later this month OPEC will come out and highlight that they haven’t cut supply either, and when people see that disappointing news I think you’ll see some pressure on oil prices.”Uncertainty over the fate of debt-ridden Greece has caused volatility on the stock markets lately.On Tuesday, news emerged that the country’s creditors have come to a consensus regarding the terms of a proposed deal that will be put to Greece’s government.“They’re nowhere closer to getting it resolved and Greece is still going to have an issue coming up with its debt payments, but at least they are working together,” Adatia said.In economic news, U.S. factory orders data slipped 0.4 per cent in April, falling shy of expectations. That marks the eighth time in nine months that orders for goods produced in U.S. factories has declined.Americans snapped up 17.79 million vehicles in May, up from 16.5 million the previous month.For many investors, good economic news in the U.S. is an indication that an interest rate increase from the Fed could be imminent.Traders are looking forward to U.S. labour market data from payroll company ADP on Wednesday and the jobs report on Friday.“I think it’s going to be a good news story,” Adatia said. “If you think about the job picture in Canada that’ll probably be a little different. I think you’ll start to see negativity coming through, as you continue to see the fall-through of low oil prices.” read more
President Mahinda Rajapaksa said in his budget speech that the excise duty on imported racing cars and go karts will be axed. The UNP today accused the government of formulating the budget for 2013 to favor the import of a Lamborghini car for a VIP.UNP leader Ranil Wickremesinghe told reporters today that the government had decided to remove the excise duty on racing cars to facilitate the import of the Lamborghini car. Lanka Business Online had reported that the tax cut for racing cars came shortly after taxes on cars used by ordinary Sri Lankans were jacked up. Speaking at a separate event today UNP MP Sujeewa Senasinghe said that the Lamborghini car was already in the country and needed to be cleared from taxes to be put on the street. read more

Fort McMurray evacuees eager for a look at how their neighbourhoods fared during a recent forset fire have a new tool — Google.The California-based Internet giant is offering a bird’s-eye view of the city taken from satellite imagery on May 5. It clearly shows which streets of the city suffered most from the fire, which destroyed 2,400 buildings.“They happened to be on the right orbit and the right spot to capture these pictures,” said Christian Adams from Google’s crisis response team.“They’re orbiting the Earth every day, so it wasn’t that big a surprise — a combination of the orbit and the clouds being out of the way that let us get these particular pictures.”The site also contains information on shelters and traffic conditions.Adams said the company has been able to spread the word about the site through its Google Now program, as well as through its public alerts program.He said the company has no way to trace those who use the site, so can’t create a list for sale to advertisers.“We don’t have any way of knowing that level of detail about people or anything about who accesses the site.”Google first offered maps of disaster zones to help residents and responders after Hurricane Katrina, which tore through New Orleans in 2005.

Ever since Nintendo made Tetris available for the Game Boy it has seen huge success. Every new platform seems to get a version of the game released, and it always sells well. The same is true on Apple’s devices, with a version available via the App Store for your iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.EA holds the publishing rights to Tetris, and it has decided to try and squeeze more cash out of players by introducing a subscription option to a new version of the game.Until now the version of Tetris on the App Store was offered by EA Mobile with no subscription attached. The new version is meant to be the game re-imagined with a number of new features for an introductory price of $0.99.Tetris is not a game I would ever associate with a subscription service, but EA believes players will be willing to pay $2.99 a month, or $29.99 every year to access additional features and offers.In return for your regular injection of cash you become a member of the Tetris fan club, or T-Club to use its proper name. T-Club offers premium content, exclusive discounts presumably off new content and other EA games, and access to Tetris Log challenges not available in the standard game.If you don’t pay the subscription you still get to play Tetris as well as Tetris Galaxy mode, the standard Tetris Log challenges, Tetris Rank, which is basically your stats, and One-Touch Marathon Mode allowing for control just through a finger tap.If you want/need Tetris on your Apple device then I’d suggest purchasing the app and trying it before subscribing. You may find the basic game is more than enough.Read more at Gamasutra and the App Store read more

Always. My mother’s life was so extraordinary. But you know what? Mrs Brown is my mother… She’s got that same wisdom. There’s a warmth and a fairness about Mrs Brown. A hard fairness and my mam had that.BRENDAN O’CARROLL has made the name Mrs Brown famous across the world, and the inspiration for the character came from someone very close to home – his mother.In a documentary produced by Caroline Dalton broadcast this morning on Newstalk, the children of the “real Mrs Brown” talked about the life of the sharp-witted woman who became Labour’s first female TD.Maureen O’Carroll was elected to the Dáil in the general election of May 1954 and, with other contributions from Labour historian Niamh Puirséil and TD Joan Burton, the story of this trailblazer is told over the hour-long radio documentary. Brendan O’Carroll with his mother Maureen Source: Caroline Dalton/With permission of O’Carroll family‘Sharp wit’Maureen was an elected politician who had 10 children, but her life almost ended up very different.She had studied to become a nun, and gained an English degree from NUI Galway, before renouncing her vows, becoming a teacher and getting married.“My mother was very cute,” Brendan O’Carroll said. “At that time it was a very radical thing to do. The only worse thing in the 30s than having a child not go into the priesthood or the convent was to have a child that went in and then came out again.”Maureen O’Carroll became involved in politics in the years after the Emergency, and became a campaigner and founder of the Lower Prices Council, a group which fought against high and unfair prices being charged in the years following World War II.“Housewives would come to my mam and say ‘I’ve been ripped off down the shop’, and that’s why she was instrumental in setting up the prices council,” her children said.The house was like Paddington Station. Neighbours would come with a problem. Everyone knew my mother was the one to go to. She’d write letters for people… anything they needed an official letter for.On the day she was elected to the Dáil, Maureen had gone down to the polling station and her husband left work early to go down to see her.On the way in he was stopped by the usher because he was still wearing his work gear.“Look I’m only going to see how my missus is doing,” he said, and then explained who his wife was.The usher replied: “I suggest you go home and put a suit on, sir.”Brendan said his mother was very well-suited to the Dáil. He described how, during her maiden speech, she was interrupted by the Ceann Comhairle who asked her when the member for Dublin North Central intended to dress appropriately for the Dáil.She was told that a dress or frock and a hat would be appropriate. Maureen O’Carroll replied that she’d do so when every other member of the Dáil wore a dress or frock and a hat.Brendan said: “She didn’t take any crap. She really was as sharp as a razor blade.”He also described going through his mother’s diary at the age of 13 and finding a note from her just before she found out that she was pregnant with him while serving as a TD.“She had a meeting with someone in the Dáil, and then a doctor’s appointment in the afternoon,” he said. “Her note says the doctor said it was either a growth or she was pregnant. And then she wrote in brackets ‘I hope it’s a fucking growth’.I was 13 reading that. I said it to her and she said ‘I was right. You a growth and you’re malignant.’TrailblazerO’Carroll is very well-known in the Labour party for the actions she took in her three years in the Dáil.During that time, she acted as the party’s chief whip, and was the first woman to hold that position in any Irish political party.Joan Burton described as “far-seeing”, proposing policies such as introducing female gardaí, having women on state boards and removing the word “illegitimate” as a classification on the birth certificate.Puirséil said: “The kind of things she was talking about weren’t very popular. It was a very masculine society. [A lot of things] wouldn’t be on the agenda of male parliamentarians.She was an independent voice in her own right, with no one telling her what to do… She was ahead of her time.Brendan recalled an example of her popularity among her constituents as never having to pay the bus fare on the number 40 into town from Finglas.“I never knew why the bus man never asked us for bus fare,” he said. “She’d shown them how to get a house and how to go about it.She was born before her time. She did it in a time where women were dictated to play a certain role.Maureen O’Carroll lost her Dáil seat in 1957, when the coalition she was part of took a hammering at the general election and she was one of the casualties.Burton: “She emerged as a major campaigner in Ireland of the 1950s. She’s in all our photos of the ‘women who won’. Relatively few women have crossed the plinth into Leinster House.For the Labour Party, she’ll always be an icon as the first woman.Legacy Source: BBC/BOC/Hungry Bear/Graeme Hunter/O’Carroll FamilyMaureen quit political life after the 1957 general election, and died in the 1980s.Portions of the documentary feature Maureen’s children chatting about what she was like as a person.A consensus emerges that she always made sure she dressed well, did not suffer fools and more often than not had a smoke in her mouth.“After a conversation with her you could walk on water, and feel you could be anything you want to be,” they said.Her children recalled her once being asked the question: “Do you admire women who want to be as good as men?”Maureen’s reply was: “If I meet any woman who wants to be as good as a man, I’d say they lack ambition.”They agreed that she doted on Brendan, who could “make [their] mother laugh like she couldn’t believe”.“What she called him on a daily basis could not be repeated on radio, television or in print,” they said.Brendan O’Carroll has had phenomenal success with his Mrs Brown character, and he says that he tries to emulate his mother’s sharp wit and her warmth with his creation.He concluded: “The legacy she’s left me is that every time I sit down to write Mrs Brown, I hear her voice.”The Real Mrs Brown aired this morning on Newstalk at 7am. It will be repeated next Saturday 3 March at 9pm.Read: ‘Brendan O’Carroll never asked me why I was leaving… he said okay and that was it’Read: Mrs Brown is getting her very own Saturday night chat show on BBC One http://jrnl.ie/3863218 ‘Sharp as a razor’, ‘no shrinking violet’ and Labour’s first female TD: Meet the real Mrs Brown A documentary describing the life of Maureen O’Carroll, mother of Brendan, airs this morning. read more

A case between two tribes over the alleged misuse of federal transportation funds has been dismissed in Alaska’s Superior Court.The Juneau Empire reports the Douglas Indian Association’s case against the much larger Central Council of the Tlingit and Haida Indian Tribes of Alaska was dismissed Jan. 13 based on a tribe’s sovereign immunity from state interference.The DIA had filed a lawsuit in April 2015 against leaders of the Central Council over what they claim was an unfair withholding of nearly $1 million in Tribal Transportation program shares.Central Council President Richard Peterson says sovereign immunity was used because of continued legal fees that would put tribe funds at risk.DIA Tribal Administrator Andrea Cadiente-Laiti says the use of sovereign immunity wasn’t in line with its original purpose. read more

Bob Iger: “I am leaving Disney in mid-2019. This time I mean it.”— Dylan Byers (@DylanByers) October 3, 2017Iger’s announced a departure in the past, but it keeps getting pushed back. The real reason is probably the one he gave. Finding a successor is hard, and he wants to ensure the company will continue to dominate the world after he’s gone. The folks at Bleeding Cool, noticed an odd coincidence in Iger’s timing, though.Iger was initially scheduled to step down in July of 2018, but he announced in February that he would be staying a little longer. The website mentions that Iger had scene an early cut of The Last Jedi at that point. A little math tells us that he’d probably get to see an early cut of Episode IX around the time he says he’d leave. While there are probably other reasons behind the date, we like the idea that even the CEO of Disney would put off future plans to see the next Star Wars movie just a little bit early. It’d be nice to believe that even billionaire CEOs geek out about stuff.Of course, making all this a little less funny is that Iger reportedly plans to run for office after he steps down. Because rich businessmen don’t have enough power in America.Finally, the fantastic Star Wars animated series Forces of Destiny put out a new short today set during the Clone Wars. If you haven’t been watching these shorts, you should absolutely fix that right now. They’re all only a few minutes long, it won’t take much time. Each one features one of the many awesome women of the Star Wars universe doing something incredibly cool. Fans of Anakin Skywalker’s former Padawan Ahsoka will definitely want to check this new one out. It picks up after Ahsoka gives Padme a piloting lesson. The pair is attacked by a droid ship, and Padme has to put her lessons to use when Ahsoka’s ship is disabled.Star Wars: Forces of Destiny is currently in its second season, and has been releasing daily on Disney’s YouTube channel during the month of October. It will air its second half-hour special on the Disney Channel on October 29.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. There are few movies more secretive than the Star Wars series. Only the also-Disney-owned Marvel series comes close. Outside of a trailer that raised more questions than it answered, everyone involved in Star Wars: The Last Jedi has been careful not to give away the slightest bit of information. Except, of course, for the merchandise manufacturers.Toy companies and other makers of tie-in products have a history of spoiling certain aspects of movies. Most recently, a hat may have given away an aspect of Superman’s return in Justice League. Going further back, Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn has said the reason you couldn’t buy a baby Groot toy for months after the first movie came out was because they wanted to keep the character’s reveal a surprise. Even Disney can’t control when a toy company will reveal something.Case in point: an arts-and-crafts book tie-in to The Last Jedi. Making Star Wars reports that the book contains some interesting flavor text next to a guide to building a model A-wing. The paragraph describes an evacuation of D’Qar, where the resistance base was in The Force Awakens. It sounds a lot like this could be the opening scene of The Last Jedi.“After Poe Dameron’s squadrons destroyed Starkiller Base, the First Order sought out the Resistance headquarters on the planet of D’Qar to enact their revenge,” the text reads. “A-wings flew guard around the Resistance fleet and the transports fleeing the base. When three First Order warships emerged from hyperspace to attack, a squadron of A-wings, commanded by Tallie Lintra, assisted Poe Dameron and the Resistance’s assault bombers in taking on an enemy dreadnought.”Making this even more plausible is the fact that General Leia herself said the base is a target of the First Order. Seeing the resistance flee would be a fitting opening to the dark middle chapter of the new trilogy. While Disney was clearly hoping the sequence would be a surprise, it’ll still be cool to watch it play out when The Last Jedi hits theaters on December 15.Beyond The Last Jedi, another Star Wars movie we’re all curious about is the currently untitled Episode IX. Even with the recent director shakeup, everyone wants to see how this story will conclude. Everyone including Disney CEO Bob Iger, it appears. Iger has been on a press tour, answering questions about a whole range of issues relating to the company. Some of the biggest news to come out of it: He’s stepping down for real in mid-2019.
