Paris Attacks Moroccan Bartender Risked her Life to Help Victims

Rabat – An exclusive footage of deadly attacks in Paris, released by the Daily Mail, shows how Moroccan bartender Jasmine El Yousfi risked her life to comfort an injured woman.The Moroccan young woman can be seen hiding under the bar and comforting an injured woman, while a merciless terrorist was only yards away shooting more victims.Immediately after the shooting, El Yousfi was seen pushing her colleague’s head further under the counter. Samir, her colleague, who is said to be her cousin, quickly wriggles away and flees down the stairs to the cellar kitchen. “My cousin, the waiter, ran downstairs to the basement. And I saw an injured woman, Lucille, and she ran to me. I wanted to protect her. She was hurt and she had a hole in her arm,” El Yousfi said.“I knew she was afraid, she was freaking out, and she was hurt. I would never have run and left her,” she added.Few minutes later, the brave Moroccan bartender was seen escorting the injured victim down the stairs to the cellar kitchen.After leading the other customers downstairs to safety, El Youssi went outside to check if she could help other victims.“I would have preferred to die, than let them die. I know how it feels to be alone and I just couldn’t live with myself knowing that I hadn’t tried to help them,” she said.“I didn’t want the people who had been shot to think they had been abandoned,” she added.The same footage of the surveillance camera of the pizzeria Casa Nostra, in the 11th arrondissement, also showed how a woman escaped an inevitable death after the gun of the terrorist jammed.The woman is considered the luckiest woman, after she managed to escape by miracle the bullet of the jihadist.According to the Daily Mail, the terrorist seen in the video is believed to be “26-year-old Belgian Salah Abdeslam, who is still on the run.” read more

Bigelow Aerospace Investigates Marketability of LowerEarth Orbit

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Bigelow Aerospace has formed a new subsidiary to manage and operate space stations in low-Earth orbit.Bigelow Space Operations (BSO) will handle sales, customer service, and operations for the manufacturer’s inflatable habitats.The densely packed modules are designed to launch on a rocket and inflate once in space.A prototype habitat—the Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM)—in 2016 joined the International Space Station, where it allows astronauts to validate extendible lodging technology.If the module proves successful, similar designs may be used in future Mars missions; inflatable capsules could help reduce the cost of deploying space stations in orbit of Earth or other objects.But first, BSO must consider the global market: Is it even worthwhile to proceed with planned launches of two B330 modules in 2021?“The time is now to quantify in detail the global, national, and corporate commercial space market for orbiting stations,” Bigelow Aerospace said in a press release. “This subject has had ambiguity for many years. BSO will be spending millions of dollars this year to establish concrete answers.”And to find potential customers, like NASA, foreign countries, and other private companies. If Bigelow can’t scrounge up clients (no thanks to competition from global space programs), it may choose to ditch the B330 missions altogether.The firm this week also announced a partnership with CASIS, manager of the U.S. national lab aboard the ISS, to send commercial, academic, and government payloads to the station.“With larger commercial platforms on the horizon, BSO recognizes the importance of gaining experience on the ISS,” the company said.“Through this experience, BSO leadership hopes to gain a better knowledge of current and future customer needs on orbit as they pertain to larger-scale operations that are both science- and non-science-related that cannot be handled by the ISS.”The investigation should be complete by December, The Verge reported; the business will announce its results—good, bad, or ugly—at the end of the year.

Coastal Residents Sue Plastics Plant on Water Pollution Claim

first_img– / 8Just down the Gulf Coast from Houston lies an enormous plastics plant, one of the nation’s biggest.It’s been a driving force in the local economy, and now it’s expanding, with promises of new jobs and tax revenue. But a handful of coastal residents are suing the plant, claiming it’s polluted the waters in their region for years.In a creek off a highway in Point Comfort, Texas, Ronnie Hamrick has his mud boots on, a net in hand. He’s scooping up handfuls of what look like little beads, but they’re not some kind of creek creatures. They’re plastic pellets, each smaller than a penny.Hamrick used to work at the Formosa petrochemical plant that makes the pellets, just across the road from where we’re standing. Now, he’s hell-bent on proving the plant is polluting.“They don’t have permits to put this in the water,” he says. “That’s the bottom line.”That’s also the gist of a federal lawsuit filed against the plant this summer.The local group “San Antonio Bay Waterkeeper,” part of the national “Waterkeeper Alliance,” is suing Formosa, saying the company is violating the Clean Water Act. They say the pellets can hurt fish and the region’s broader ecosystem, along with the local fishing economy.“I don’t think they thought we would go through with it,” says Diane Wilson, a longtime environmental activist who is also part of the suit. She says in addition to demanding that the plant fix the problem and clean up the pellets from the waters, the plaintiffs wants a monitoring system set up.“So if they say they’ve put in all these things and they’re not having discharges, we have monitoring in place to make sure,” she says.Wilson and Hamrick say they’ve documented the pellets washing up around Lavaca Bay since January of 2016. Their lawsuit asks for a more than $57 million fine against the plant. But at the University of Houston, chemical engineer Dr. Ramanan Krishnamoorti, says that’s not likely to happen.“Even in a state like California, where other companies have been charged with violating the Clean Water Act, the fines have been thousands of dollars,” he says.Not much for a multibillion-dollar company, and one that’s growing. The company’s currently building onto its existing plant in Calhoun County, and it’s getting ready to expand into neighboring Jackson County.“Right now they’re hiring construction workers primarily, so there’s a lot of R.V. parks in the area that stay full,” says Jackson County Judge Dennis Simons. He says his community is excited about the more than 300 new jobs the expansion could bring to a place where there’s not much other industry. And then there’s the tax money.Simons, calculating the numbers as we speak by phone, says his county could see several million dollars in new tax revenue. He says he’s not much concerned about the lawsuit, saying he trusts the company is doing the best they can to be environmentally responsible.Simons was the only local elected official we could get to talk to us about the case. But one commissioner did tell us the plant is the largest local employer, and the company already contributes millions to the local tax base.A Formosa spokesperson wouldn’t comment on the case, but did point us to a letter the company sent in April. It suggests the pellets are spilling out of rail cars and urges shippers to be more careful.Dr. Krishnamoorti, with the University of Houston, says what perplexes him about this case is that even after state regulators found Formosa was responsible for the pellets in the water last year, he says the company didn’t work to fix the problem as aggressively as other plants typically do.“This is really not standard operating procedure for plastics manufacturing,” he says. “You’re putting valuable product out into the waterways. Why would you do that? This makes you money.”As the federal lawsuit moves forward, the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality says it’s developing an enforcement case against the plant on a state violation.

first_img Top Stories Cardinals GM Steve Keim and head coach Bruce Arians watch a mini-camp practice. (Photo by Adam Green/Arizona Sports) Your browser does not support the audio element. Keim pointed to Freeney and Johnson as examples of the type of player he would be looking for at this point.“They have to have a mental makeup, and again, that mental makeup is to be a rare competitor, to be a guy who just wants to play football and again, it’s not about the paycheck,” he said.Are those players out there? Maybe. But even if they are, would they be able to fill one of the team’s few needs?Keim said when observing the market, he looks at the person and the value of the player as well as what position they play.But since the Cardinals are as deep as they are, he is mostly focused on the last of the three factors, with an eye on what his team may be searching for down the road.“I’m more focused on positions of need, where I think we can not only add a player who can help us on game day, but from a depth standpoint as well,” he said. “Positional versatility is huge — and that’s the one thing about when I look at our roster that excites me, is that we have so many players with positional flexibility. Guys who can play inside, outside, who in a pinch because of injuries can play in different spots. And you know, as it gets later in the year and injuries do occur, versatility is a key.” Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires “I really do think that we may be able to add another player or two that can contribute and help us out this year.”Some of the biggest names still available on the free agent market are receiver Anquan Boldin, cornerback Leon Hall, safety Donte Whitner and guard Louis Vasquez. Freeney is also unsigned, and has expressed a desire to return to Arizona if the team wants him.A look at the Cardinals’ roster would identify few true needs, though it would not be a surprise if the team added some veterans along the offensive line or in the secondary.Then of course, there’s always the possibility of injuries necessitating a move, though that cannot be predicted.For Keim the process of signing a player, even if he is added later in the year, began a few months ago.“I mean, generally, more than likely we’ve had conversations with these players at the start of free agency, but because of injuries or other factors, let’s be honest, their price drops,” he said. “The later it gets in the year, guys’ expectations come down and the later it gets, the more they have to become realistic.“So, that’s a part of it, but at the same time, I’ve always talked about it, you have to judge the person; I mean, it’s got to be the type of guy that’s not in it for the dollars, that’s in it to win a championship, to be a part of a team, and has probably had some success.” The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo LISTEN: Steve Keim, AZ Cardinals general manager center_img 0 Comments   Share   Some of the biggest contributors to the Arizona Cardinals’ success over the last three seasons joined the team late in the process.In 2013, Eric Winston and John Abraham came on board just before training camp.In 2014, Tommy Kelly was added after Darnell Dockett was lost to an ACL injury during training camp, while last season Lyle Sendlein and Chris Johnson were brought in after camp had already begun, and Dwight Freeney was signed weeks into the regular season. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling – / 15 Winston started 16 games at right tackle, Abraham made the Pro Bowl after notching 11.5 sacks and Kelly provided stability along the defensive line. Sendlein re-assumed his role as the starting center, while Johnson went on to lead the team in rushing and Freeney did the same in sacks.General manager Steve Keim’s ability to locate talent and head coach Bruce Arians’ ability to squeeze production out of players who many thought had little left to give has helped give the impression that while the Cardinals may be plenty happy with the roster they have now, it’s unlikely they have finished tweaking it.A guest of Doug and Wolf on Arizona Sports 98.7 FM Thursday, Keim talked about how he’s not done building the 2016 Cardinals.“You know, you guys have seen me enough to know that I’m going to continue to stay active, so if there is a player out there — and we’ve monitored a few different players going into this time of year — we’ll bring him in and we’ll be aggressive about it,” he said. “Now, it takes two sides: it takes one side to give an opportunity, obviously, and the other side has to be on board from a financial perspective.last_img read more

City’s Ederson in a Premier League contest last month Ederson ended up needing eight stitches The referee was yet again under scrutiny in Sunday’s FIFA U-17 World Cup quarter-final when Arp was clearly brought down but Maruffo allowed the play to go on But look at it this way Brazil had won the Fair Play Award at the U-15 and U-17 South American Championships Coach Carlos Amadeu does not want his side to be known for pushing and kicking opponents “Brazil are here to play football We have just one yellow card going into this match" said Amadeu A day after Weuck accusations FIFA stood by the match officials saying a beaten team should learn to accept the loss "I always think that in life we have to learn to accept loss and respect (a decision) Mistakes are part of the game Referees take a decision based on what they see and what they think And they do it in an honest way" Massimo Busacca who is the head of FIFA refereeing department said on Monday However this is not the first time in the ongoing tournament that the coach of a national side has targeted the referee in front of the media Niger coach IsmaliaTiemoko didn’t look happy with the refereeing decisions in their GroupB clash against Spain "People often say I don’t joke a lot But in this match (Niger versus Spain) there are a lot of things to joke about" Tiemoko’s said ofthe refereeing “Normally it isn’t my habit to criticise the referee Spain are far more experienced while this is our first time (at a World Cup) Their players were protected a lot by the referee” he added Niger dominated their Spanish counterparts in the opening 10 minutes restricting Santi Denia’s Colts from playing their trademark tiki-taka football In those first fewminutes Niger were in control of their passes and were outmuscling the Spanish players However Niger’s style of play was illegal according to the referee’s book who gave away free-kicks in Spain’s favour “Every time the game was in (our) hands something went against us from the referee It would have been a more equal (game) had some of these decisions gone in our favour We weren’t allowed to play our game by the referee” Tiemoko stated before adding"In all the cases when we were in physical contact with Spain fouls were given against us which pushed us back a bit The referee must respect our style of football" During the all-African quarter-final between Mali and Ghana the Ghanaian coach Fabian Samuel had questioned the referee’s decision to rule out Sulley Ibrahim’s equaliser which should have stood However Algerian referee Medhi Charef disallowed the goal for what he considered a foul on Fode Konate by Kudus Mohammed in the build-up to the goal"We did everything right we scored a perfect goal and it was disallowed I don’t know what to say again" So we have had three incidents now in which coaches of the national teams have targeted match officials for their poor referring which more or less cost their side an important win In a sport like football where one refereeing decision can change the outcome of the entire match the officials must keep in mind that they havetoadhere to the rules irrespective of age groups The result could have been different for Ghana and Germany had the officials been a bit more careful Lastly the ‘referees are humans too’ statement should be buried before the video assistant
