Rabat – The makers of the French app Heetch have collaborated with Moroccan taxis’ labor union to create the first legal transport application in Morocco: Fiddek. You don’t have to wave forlornly or line up on the street anymore – Fiddek is now available to connect Casablanca’s residents with its taxi drivers.Launched on November 17, the app is currently only available in Casablanca but eventually is planned to spread to other Moroccan cities. The idea behind Fiddek and other “ridesharing” apps is simple: When you need a taxi you open up the app, which shows you all the cars nearby and how quickly one could reach you. You press a button, and you wait for the driver to show up at your current location.“We are glad to join the Moroccan taxis labor union to launch this project. Indeed, by combining the technology of Heetch with the quality of service and the know-how of ‘Fiddek’ taxis, we contribute to improving Casablanca’s residents’ quality of life and in facilitating the task of taxi drivers,” said the director of Heetch in Morocco, Patrick Pederson.Fiddek aims to be a high-quality service. The taxi labor union will recommend drivers according several criteria: cleanliness, conviviality, respect for the law, and others.Heetch will allow the drivers to work in good conditions and have health insurance. But to benefit from these welfare benefits, drivers must to pass a training course by the Heetch Maroc team and by the national labor union of taxis.Drivers working with Fiddek must also sign a quality charter, committing to drive an appropriate vehicle and provide safety, conviviality, and attention to details such as music and bottles of water on boardTaxis vs Uber and CareemThis initiative shows that Moroccan taxi drivers are changing their once-aggressive approach towards Uber and Careem. They are adopting a new strategy, “an honest competition,” by adopting the tools of their enemies to fight them.Since the 2015 arrival of Uber, taxi drivers have protested the app, claiming they are losing clientele to an illegitimate service.Casablanca’s streets have become a taxi war zone with numerous car chases, threats, and vandalized vehicles being reported as frustrated taxi drivers have taken matters into their own hands.
Rabat – Moroccan workers’ representatives say they have had enough of the government’s reluctance to meet their demands.After three months of fruitless discussions over improved working conditions, the groups are pointing accusatory fingers at the government, saying that they are no longer willing to tolerate the government’s passivity and perceived lack of interest in their daily struggles.The relationship between Moroccan trade unions and government authorities has been a bit of a roller coaster in the past three months, oscillating between public or written protestations, half-hearted compromise, a static social dialogue, and strike announcements. The two entities now seem to have finally switched to a full-throated Tom & Jerry mode. In the latest development, especially marked by the failure of the ongoing social dialogue, trade union representatives are accusing the El Othmani-led government of treason and lack of concern.The news, reported by Al Akhbar in its August 26 edition, comes in the wake of a three-month long dialogue between the government and workers’ representatives.Trade unions demanded improvement of working conditions, with the most vital elements being salary increase and a revision of family allocations from MAD 200 to 300 for each of the first three born to a family. While the government agreed in principle in July and promised that implementation would follow, nothing has changed in the past months.In an unsparing attack on the government’s failure to deliver on its promises, an association of trade unions described the prevailing situation as an “unacceptable step back and treason.”The collective statement also urged the government to start working towards signing the official decrees for the implementation of all the measures agreed upon three months ago.Should the government fail to positively respond to the unions’ cri de coeur, stressed the statement, the coming months will be a constant scene of public strikes and protests.In an attempt to justify the delay in meeting its agreement with the group of worker representatives, the government said that the long wait was due to the summer holidays. It promised, yet again, to deliver as soon as possible.But trade unions say they have waited numerous times, and for far too long. The biting tone of the message suggests they have no intention of waiting for months again, only to be told on the due date to wait some more. They do not seem to have bought the government’s summer holiday excuse.The statement reads: “The government has evoked summer holidays as a reason why it delayed singing into a decree [the agreement]. But these are baseless allegations that do not justify the delay in signing an agreement many of us trade unionists grudgingly signed, given that some of us disagreed with many of the points it contained.”The statement added that trade unions have already played their role by signing the terms of thé agreement, even though they did not feel at ease with some if the content. It noted that “the ball is now in the government’s court….” This latest episode of the broken social dialogue comes after teachers’ and doctors’ strikes.For all the workers’ declared determination to take to the streets in case their demands are not met, the Moroccan government may drag its feet on delivery, testing the group’s resolve.But the acrimonious tone of the trade union’s message suggests there are more strikes in store for the coming weeks should the government fail to deliver or convince the seemingly irritated workers to wait a little more.
19 March 2010A senior United Nations official has lauded the progress achieved by the men and women of Haiti involved in the cash-for-work programme, which was identified as one of the priority activities in the early recovery agenda following the 12 January earthquake. The programme, coordinated by the UN Development Programme (UNDP), enables Haitians to earn an income as they help their country recover from the quake, which is estimated to have affected one third of the 9 million citizens of Haiti, already the poorest nation in the Western Hemisphere.Working with local municipal authorities, thousands of Haitians are put to work removing rubble from the streets, removing waste and clearing drainage canals ahead of the upcoming rainy season. They are paid 180 gourdes a day, or roughly $4.50 at current exchange rates, for six hours worth of labour. “Although so much more is needed, it is encouraging to see the streets open to traffic, canals being cleaned, and shops open for business – and all of it done by the men and women of Delmas working to rebuild their city one step at a time,” UNDP Associate Administrator Rebeca Grynspan remarked as she visited one municipality yesterday. During her visit, Ms. Grynspan also reviewed the other areas of support to the Government, including restoring its capacity to deliver justice and security services, the agency noted in a news release.Among the buildings that were destroyed in the 7.0 magnitude quake was the Palais de Justice in the capital, Port-au-Prince, and gone with it were the archives and legal documents related to millions of Haitians, leaving them without proof of property, inheritance and business licenses. UNDP is working with its partners to help tackle this challenge, including by providing temporary work facilities, office equipment and technical support.“Problems with land and properties titles and adoption processes will increase with the loss of documentation, human and material resources to deal with those matters,” said UNDP Country Director Eric Overvest. “A new generation of judges and justice auxiliaries will receive training to meet demand,” he added. “Also, measures have been taken to address the needs of displaced and homeless Haitians, who need protection against possible risk of raising violence, especially against women and children.”Meanwhile, the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said today that more than two months after the earthquake, the emergency response phase of the relief efforts should continue for months to come – given the scale and complexity of the crisis.Concerning shelter, OCHA said that over three-quarters of the 1.2 million people in need of emergency shelter have now received materials, and added that the relocation of people needs to be sped up ahead of the upcoming rainy season. The Office also stated that it is working the UN mission in the country, known as MINUSTAH, and the Haitian National Police to improve protection in the camps where Haitians have taken shelter. Some 150 patrols by UN Police (UNPOL) and the Haitian National Police are conducted everyday in camps. Also, a pilot project is underway in the Petionville Club camp where female officers from UNPOL and the Haitian National Police are working specifically on gender-based violence. In addition, the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) is in the process of assembling and distributing 17,000 flashlights to women, and plans to give 300 tents to set up “safe spaces for women” in the camps.The World Health Organization (WHO) said that the ongoing vaccination campaign in Haiti has prevented outbreaks of diseases, particularly in Port-au-Prince. About 400,000 adults and children have now been immunized, mainly in camps for displaced people in the capital.The campaign is expected to be completed by mid-April and is being extended to other areas of the country, the agency added.
TORONTO — Cheaper avocados at Whole Foods might get fans of the organic grocery chain salivating over savings, but retail analysts say it probably won’t launch price wars at Canadian supermarkets.Amazon took ownership of Whole Foods Monday and immediately decided to cut the cost of some of its pricey organic and specialty foods, an approach that’s designed to resonate directly with the chain’s best customers and create buzz in the marketplace.Among the items reduced at a Vancouver Whole Foods location this week were Colombian Hass avocados, which are now $1 cheaper at $1.99 each, and organic baby spinach which costs $3.49, or 50 cents less than a week ago.Elsewhere in the store, organic black quinoa has been reduced by 80 cents per 100 grams to $1.59 and Whole Foods’ private label organic almond beverage in vanilla is $1 cheaper at $2.49.But the Whole Foods price cuts won’t be particularly effective in attracting consumers on the hunt for deals, said Mark Lee, associate professor at the Ted Rogers School of Retail Management.“Whole Foods is already marked up quite high,” he said. “The price reduction is really just getting back to the level of regular grocery prices.”The country’s biggest grocers are unlikely to play along with deep cuts by Whole Foods’ new owner Amazon in the aisles of its 13 locations across Canada. That’s partly because the imminent threat of the high-end chain wouldn’t justify the financial hit of reacting with deep discounts, suggested Brynn Winegard, a marketing expert at Winegard and Company.“Places like Loblaws, Sobeys and Longo’s won’t necessarily be able to afford that,” she said.“But what you will be looking at is a huge market play towards loyalty.”Winegard expects established chains to lean on their reputations — and points redemption programs — in hopes of keeping customers from straying to competitors in the short term.Expect better deals on taking home three bottles of spaghetti sauce instead of two, for example, and more appealing bonus point offers designed to get customers back into stores. Both are generally more affordable, and effective, strategies than deep cuts to a wide assortment of products.Price wars have a long history of offering Canadian grocers little upside, especially if their profit margins are cut to the bone. It’s happened in the past, most notably when Wal-Mart Canada Corp. bulked up its food offerings nearly 10 years ago and some chains dropped prices in response.Winegard says those fights usually only generate “short-term wins” for the retailer when they should be focused on the big picture of an evolving industry where Amazon is looking to get a stronghold on the Canadian shopping basket.“I don’t see adequate evidence that our existing oligopolies are really hedging against those competitive threats,” Winegard said.“It’s almost as if they don’t take (it) seriously or don’t think it will be real – and it will be very real in the next couple of years.”Lee suggested Canadian grocers are misdirecting their attention to storefronts, rather than establishing infrastructure that could go head-to-head in the digital world, Amazon’s forte.“Amazon certainly has the capacity, the capability and the website support to do this — the other stores, like Loblaw and Sobeys, aren’t really there yet.”— With files from Aleksandra Sagan in VancouverFollow @dfriend on Twitter.
Judge OKs $84.9M payout in truck stop rebate scandal; company owned by Browns owner, brother AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email LITTLE ROCK, Ark. – A federal judge in Arkansas approved a settlement Monday that pays $84.9 million to 5,500 trucking companies that were cheated out of promised rebates by Pilot Flying J, the nation’s largest diesel retailer.The settlement doesn’t put to rest a federal investigation in which seven company employees have already entered guilty pleas.Attorney Aubrey Harwell Jr. of Nashville said Jimmy Haslam, owner of the Cleveland Browns and CEO of the truck stop chain, had no knowledge that employees were cheating customers. The company is co-owned by Haslam’s brother, Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, who has said he isn’t involved with Pilot Flying J’s operations.U.S. District Judge James Moody said Monday that he was satisfied that the settlement was fair, reasonable and equitable.“I don’t have any reservation about giving final approval here,” Moody said at the end of an hourlong hearing in Little Rock.Moody also approved $14 million in fees that will go to the truckers’ lawyers.The settlement reimburses trucking firms for their losses, plus 6 per cent interest, which is calculated from the time each rebate should have been paid. The cheating dates back to 2005.Lawyers on both sides stressed that no one among the 5,500 companies agreeing to the settlement filed an objection and that only about 1 per cent of affected companies opted out of the agreement so they could file their own lawsuits.Don Barrett, an attorney for the truckers, said the settlement makes his clients whole.“What Pilot was required to do was done well and … honourably,” Barrett said.He said many clients received their money before the settlement was approved.“They’re already paying it out. They’ve paid out most of it already” Barrett said.Barrett praised Jimmy Haslam for opening the accounts in question to auditors and striving to make trucking companies whole.“We couldn’t have had this result in this short amount of time had not Mr. (Jimmy) Haslam stepped up to the plate, said he was going to do the right thing and in an honourable way and he did it. … That’s the comment of the 5,800 truckers that I represent,” Barrett said.Harwell said it was in the interest of the company to reach a settlement quickly.“The advantage to Pilot Flying J is demonstrating clearly and unequivocally that they were committed to doing the right thing. Where there were things that happened improperly, they were committed to make them right,” Harwell said.Pilot Flying J conducted internal audits after the chicanery came to light in April and, according to Harwell. An independent auditor verified the company’s findings.The truckers’ lawsuit alleged a variety of violations, including fraud, unjust enrichment, fraudulent concealment, breach of contract and other claims, all of which were dropped with the settlement.Pilot Flying J has annual revenues of about $30 billion.Prosecutors alleged in court documents that the scheme to cheat customers out of rebate and discount money was well known among sales staff. Plea agreements allege sales staff took part in a training session that taught employees how to defraud trucking companies without getting caught.Harwell stressed that the Haslams had no involvement in any wrongdoing.“The federal government took documents, they’ve interviewed witnesses, they’re subpoenaing people to the grand jury and they’ll get to the bottom of what they think occurred. In terms of any impact … there will be charges brought, there have been some guilty pleas already, there will likely be more,” Harwell said.The settlement breaks down to $66.25 million in principal and $9.75 million in interest that goes to the truckers. Legal fees comprise $14 million. The company spent $4.5 million on audits plus other expenses.___Follow Chuck Bartels on Twitter at www.twitter.com/cbartelsLIT by Chuck Bartels, The Associated Press Posted Nov 25, 2013 11:26 am MDT

Technology is slowly making its way into every aspect of our lives, and that includes the rather solitary life of a shepherd.Spending his days looking after a flock a sheep requires a person who enjoys their own company. But technology such as smartphones and now tablets will surely make their days more entertaining. It looks like it may also keep those delicious sheep a little safer from a wolf attack.An experiment has just been carried out in Switzerland that saw a small flock of sheep fitted with heart rate monitors. Two trained wolf dogs (muzzled shepherd dog/wolf crossbreeds) were then released and attempted to herd the flock, which of course sent the heart rates of the sheep skyrocketing to 225bpm. The monitors were configured to send a text message to the shepherd if such a sudden increase was detected, ultimately informing him of an imminent attack.With the coverage of mobile networks expanding, it’s certainly viable that these monitors would be able to send a message even in quite remote locations. In doing so the shepherd could react in time to stop one or more of his precious stock from becoming a tasty wolf meal.There’s also plans to fit the final units with some kind of wolf deterrent. This could take the form of a noise and/or spray that would scare the wolf enough to retreat. The one problem with that being it may also scare the sheep or injure them depending on what the spray consisted of. I also imagine the wolves will become accustomed to such a deterrent and start ignoring it, especially if they are very hungry.If the shepherds get on board with this technology they could also ask for an upgrade allowing them to track the individual sheep by GPS on a tablet. That way if they ever get spooked or a few get lost, finding them is as simple as looking at a Google Maps-style tablet app.More at SDA (translated), via The Verge. Image courtesy of Jacquie Wingate.

By Sean Yoes, Baltimore AFRO Editor, email@example.comBaltimore County Police identified the 16-year old accused of killing a County police officer May 21 in the Perry Hall community of Baltimore County.A statement of probable cause issued today identified Dawnta Anthony Harris as the suspect in the killing of Officer Amy Caprio.Dawnta Anthony Harris is facing murder charges after being accused of killing Baltimore County police officer Amy Caprio. Three others, whose names have not been released, were also arrested. (Courtesy photo)Harris has been charged as an adult, with first degree murder in the death of Caprio, who was killed when she confronted a group of teens in a jeep, which had been described as a “suspicious vehicle” in the Perry Hall neighborhood. Three other teen suspects are in custody according to police.“All three, teenage males. Detective(s) have verified that the group were involved in burglaries in the area. Officers will be in the area today to canvas for property stolen during these burglaries,” stated County police via Twitter.According to a report by CBS News, Caprio, who would have been a four-year veteran of the department in July, was seriously injured when she was run over by the jeep authorities say was driven by Harris. The officer may have been responding to a burglary in progress. According to the police, a witness reported hearing a pop before Caprio was run over, but investigators are not sure how the officer was ultimately killed; whether she died because she was run over by the vehicle or she was shot, or both.Police say Harris was arrested near the location where the jeep was abandoned. Allegedly he told a County detective he had been waiting in the driver’s seat of the vehicle, while others were in the process of robbing a home.According to the statement of probable cause, Harris also told the detective he “drove at the officer.”Harris was scheduled to appear before a judge this afternoon in Towson. No word yet on what the other three teens have been charged with, or if they will also be charged as adults.

Foxtel, Netflix and Spotify will provide content on Qantas Wi-Fi enabled domestic flights in 2017, with video and audio streaming possible thanks to speeds up to 10 times faster than conventional inflight Wi-Fi.The service will be available on the first aircraft in late February this year, with the rest of the airline’s fleet of domestic Boeing 737 and Airbus A330 aircraft coming online from mid-2017 onwards.Qantas group executive of brand, marketing and corporate affairs Olivia Wirth said that fast, free internet will open up a huge range of options for customers inflight.“We know that email, online shopping and general web browsing will be popular uses when we switch on Wi-Fi, but what a lot of people relish about flying is being able to catch up on their favourite TV shows or watch movies they didn’t get to see at the cinema,” said Wirth.“Foxtel and Netflix both have huge catalogues that are expanding all the time, so there will be no shortage of entertainment on board.“The usage data from the collection of albums we already have on our aircraft shows that music is a great way for passengers to relax as they watch the world fly by. Spotify will open this up so you can listen to virtually any song you like,” she said.While Foxtel, Netflix and Spotify are all paid subscription services, they will offer free access to Qantas customers on and off the aircraft for between three days and one month after their Qantas flight.Customers will log on to the inflight Wi-Fi via their own devices, and as well as links to access Netflix, Spotify and Foxtel, the landing page will feature real-time flight data; hotel, restaurant and transport options at the destination; the latest weather; and personalised information linked to the passenger’s itinerary and Frequent Flyer account.

Ferrari’s Board of Directors, chaired by Luca di Montezemolo, today analysed the first quarter results for 2009. Despite the current international economic climate, which has hit the automotive sector in particular, Ferrari’s figures were in line with the record levels reached in 2008. Turnover for the first three months was 441 million euro compared to 455.7 million euro over the same period in 2008.The first quarter closed with a trading profit of 54 million euro compared to last year’s 59 million euro. These results reflect the introduction of new models, in particular the success of the Ferrari California and the Scuderia Spider 16M, the constant growth in activities linked to the brand (e-commerce, licensing, merchandising and retail) and the company’s continuing efforts to maximise efficiency.The Board of Directors also examined developments related to recent decisions taken by the Federation Internationale de l’Automobile during an extraordinary meeting of the World Motor Sport Council on 29 April 2009. Although this meeting was originally called only to examine a disciplinary matter, the decisions taken mean that, for the first time ever in Formula 1, the 2010 season will see the introduction of two different sets of regulations based on arbitrary technical rules and economic parameters.The Board considers that if this is the regulatory framework for Formula 1 in the future, then the reasons underlying Ferrari’s uninterrupted participation in the World Championship over the last 60 years – the only constructor to have taken part ever since its inception in 1950 – would come to a close.The Board also expressed its disappointment about the methods adopted by the FIA in taking decisions of such a serious nature and its refusal to effectively reach an understanding with constructors and teams. The rules of governance that have contributed to the development of Formula 1 over the last 25 years have been disregarded, as have the binding contractual obligations between Ferrari and the FIA itself regarding the stability of the regulations.The same rules for all teams, stability of regulations, the continuity of the FOTA’s endeavours to methodically and progressively reduce costs, and governance of Formula 1 are the priorities for the future. If these indispensable principles are not respected and if the regulations adopted for 2010 will not change, then Ferrari does not intend to enter its cars in the next Formula 1 World Championship.Ferrari trusts that its many fans worldwide will understand that this difficult decision is coherent with the Scuderia’s approach to motor sport and to Formula 1 in particular, always seeking to promote its sporting and technical values.www.ferrari.com/
