Rabat – The Qatari satellite channel Al Jazeera highlights the geographical diversity of Morocco in the first episodes of its new tourism program “Al Moussafir” (The Traveler).The show devoted its first two episodes to five Moroccan cities: Rabat, Casablanca, Tangier, Fez and Chefchaoun.Al Jazeera said it decided to feature Morocco because of the kingdom’s variety. “The choice of Morocco was made on the basis of different data, including the geographical diversity, balance between historical and natural values and elements of tourist attractions in the kingdom,” the channel said in a statement. The travel program was prepared and presented by Hazem Abuwatfa, a television presenter for Al Jazeera Arabic channel. His journey in Morocco starts from Casablanca, where the camera zooms in on the Atlantic beach and the Hassan II mosque, one of the biggest in the world.“We are in a land blessed by a vast geographical diversity, from mountains to green landscapes, to the desert and to picturesque beaches,” said Abuwafa in the first episode’s introduction.The journalist then tours some of the renowned areas in the city of Casablanca on a small blue motorcycle.Abuwatfa’s first destination is Habous, a neighborhood built by the French colonizers in 1917. The neighborhood is well-known for its shops selling traditional Moroccan handmade clothes and accessories.The presenter then takes the opportunity to visit Bab Marrakech, one of the oldest Souqs in the city of Casablanca.The journalist roams the city’s small neighborhood by foot, exploring the white buildings of the city. The program’s presenter then goes to one of the biggest sites in the African continent: Hassan II mosque. Hassan II mosque is the largest in Morocco and one of the largest in the world. Abuwatfa is fascinated by the mosque’s breath-taking historical architecture.After Casablanca, the journalist moves to Morocco’s capital, Rabat. Walking through the city, he stops in Kasbah des Oudayas, which was first built in the 12th century during the reign of Almohad Calipahte.Located at the mouth of the Bouregreg River, Kasbah des Oudayas was later became the refuge of Andalusia Muslims fleeing Spain after their expulsion in the early 1600s. While in Rabat, foreigners should never miss the beautiful historical sites of the city: Chellah and the Hassan Tower.Abuwatfa stops in the two historical sites, where he captures the magnificent sights. The travel program’s second episode was devoted to Tangier, Chafchaouen and Fez. The journalist starts his second journey in Morocco from Tangier, the gateway between Africa and Europe.He explores the beauty of the city, its buildings and its charming coastal atmosphere. Then Abutawafa stops at the Caves of Hercules, one of the most popular tourist attractions, located 14 kilometers west of Tangier in Cape Spartel.Chefchaoun is the journalist’s second destination in the north of the kingdom. The northwestern city is notably known by its blue-washed buildings, as well as for its Akchour Waterfalls, a little paradise on earth just 30 kilometers from the city in the valley of Talembote.The journalist then chooses to go to the spiritual city of Fez, 199 kilometers away. He started his journey in Fez by visiting Bab Bou Jeloud, a monumental gate was built and well-known tourist attraction built in 1913.Roaming in the medina of the spiritual city, the journalist takes a look at some buildings’ handmade doors and handmade. The journalist also explores the city’s art galleries and handicraft boutiques, which attract the attention of tourists.The new travel program’s two episodes were released on September 30. There are two further episodes on Morocco, which have not yet been broadcasted.
HMS Defender is a Type 45 Destroyer, built in the United Kingdom and is one of the world’s most advanced warships. The British High Commission said the Ship’s visit now is a welcome signal of the closer defence relations the two countries are developing. She is equipped with the Principal Anti Air Missile weapon system, a medium-range gun, close-in weapon systems and carries a maritime helicopter that is equipped to engage surface and sub-surface targets.While in Sri Lanka the Ship’s company will meet with counterparts from the Sri Lankan Navy and also play them at selected sports. (Colombo Gazette) The British war ship HMS Defender is paying a routine visit to Colombo to take on stores and fuel before continuing with her duties in the Indian Ocean.This is the first time in four years that a RN warship has visited Sri Lanka, a country with which the United Kingdom shares a long military history, the British High Commission in Colombo said.
Tim Siemens (BA ’90) knows the importance of not only providing seniors the care they deserve, but also recognizing the role they once played as the farmers, teachers and hard-working members of society that helped to shape the next generation.After almost two decades as an administrator for Pleasant Manor and Tabor Manor care facilities, the Brock alumnus still speaks passionately about working with seniors in the community.Siemens’ outstanding leadership in the health-care field, as well as his commitment to his alma mater, has earned him the inaugural Brock University Alumni Association Community Engagement Award.“It is an absolute honour to receive this award from the Alumni Association as my education from Brock University built a strong foundation for my academic career and helped shape who I am today,” Siemens said after learning the news.He began studying sociology at Brock in 1986, pursuing his interest in aging and the study of gerontology. With Canada’s aging population of baby boomers on track to create a ‘Silver Tsunami,’ Siemens wanted to ensure proper care was in place for the country’s oldest residents.“It was always my goal to create an enriching presence and culture for each individual — resident, employee, volunteer and community member — that walks through the doors of the homes I manage through the rich programming we offer,” he said.Recognized as a leader in his field locally, provincially and nationally, Siemens’ approach to care for seniors is leading edge and the homes that he operates have been recognized for their best practices.He has also demonstrated his commitment to Brock University through regular speaking engagements in the Faculty of Applied Health Sciences and mentorship opportunities for students looking for career guidance in his field.Siemens is proud to employ many Brock graduates as nurses, personal support workers and therapeutic recreationists.The Brock University Alumni Association will present Siemens with the Alumni Community Engagement Award on Saturday, Sept. 16 during the Alumni Recognition Reception held as part of Homecoming weekend.He will be joined by several other outstanding alumni also being recognized for their achievements and ongoing connection to Brock.Siemens is a proud second-generation Brock graduate. His father, Rudy, was part of Brock’s first-ever graduating class in 1967 — a group that is celebrating its golden anniversary this weekend.During the reception, members of the Class of ’67 will each be presented with a gold cameo pin featuring the silhouette of University namesake, Maj.-Gen. Sir Isaac Brock.Awards to be presented at the Alumni Recognition Reception Brock University Alumni Association Distinguished Alumni Award:Lilian Tomovich (BA ’89) — Exemplifying the spirit of Brock as a creative and passionate trailblazer.Brock University Alumni Association Award for Community Engagement:Tim Siemens (BA ’90) — An outstanding community member who enriches the lives of others.Faculty of Applied Health Sciences Distinguished Graduate Award:Jeff Dykeman (BSM ’05) — A passionate leader and mentor in the sport industry.Faculty of Education Distinguished Graduate AwardSteffanie Bjorgan (BA ’90, BEd ’90) — Dedicated to advocacy and education for children in the Niagara region.Goodman School of Business Distinguished Graduate AwardsJoanne McKee (BAdmin ’86) — A passionate administrator dedicated to serving post-secondary education.Martin Philp (BAdmin ’80, MA ’86) — A renowned business leader passionately supporting Goodman students.Faculty of Humanities Distinguished Graduate AwardSarah Argue (BA ’06) — A passionate creator and celebrated performer.Faculty of Mathematics and Science Distinguished Graduate AwardTony Abou-Assaleh (BSc ’01) — An innovative entrepreneur and intuitive researcherFaculty of Social Sciences Distinguished Graduate AwardMarcia Trudeau-Bomberry (BA ’00) — Inspiring indigenous youth through sport and culture
Magontec has concluded three agreements that provide the economic and operating basis for its future endeavours at Golmud in Qinghai Province, China. These agreements are the basis upon which Magontec will invest $11 million in the magnesium alloy cast house equipment adjacent to the Qinghai electrolytic magnesium smelter. Magontec raised the capital required for this investment through a Rights Issue concluded in January 2014. The agreements provide:Exclusive rights to manufacture magnesium alloy from liquid pure magnesium produced at this facility with these rights having a 10-year durationA guaranteed supply of liquid pure magnesium under a pricing formula that would generate a strong profit under current magnesium pricing conditionsA detailed roadmap for future cooperation for Magontec and its partner, Qinghai Salt Lake Magnesium Co. Ltd. (QSLM).The QSLM smelter, when completed, will be the largest electrolytic magnesium facility ever constructed. It will use renewable energy for over 75% of its total requirements.Nic Andrews, Executive Chairman of Magontec said “This new project in Qinghai is the largest and most important investment by Magontec for many years. It will re-establish Magontec as a leading magnesium alloy manufacturer and recycler and is expected to deliver a significant boost to group profitability when fully operational. These Agreements represent the foundations on which both Magontec and QSLM will work together and build future prosperity for shareholders of both companies”.The magnesium project in Qinghai is currently under construction and the magnesium alloy cast house is expected to be completed and ready for the installation of Magontec’s plant and equipment in the fourth quarter of 2014.The development of the Qinghai salt lake magnesium resource is among the most challenging projects ever undertaken in the magnesium industry.This major project in the Chinese province of Qinghai, based on the vast Chaerhan Salt Lake, aims to extensively develop the local mineral resources. The project represents an investment of over $9.0 billion by the shareholders of the Qinghai Salt Lake Industries Co. Among the resources are sodium, potassium, magnesium and lithium. The current development plan will see the production of large quantities of magnesium chloride. This product will be separated into its constituent parts as feedstock for nine different industrial processes including the 100,000 t/y (first stage) electrolytic magnesium smelter.QSLM, a subsidiary of the Qinghai Salt Lake Industries Co, is responsible for the production of pure magnesium at Golmud. While the technology is derived from the proven Norsk Hydro process used in Canada and Norway, the scale of this project is significantly larger than its predecessor plants generating opportunities for greater economics of scale.Energy for the Qinghai project is principally sourced from hydroelectric and solar power stations. As a result of its clean energy and electrolytic process it is anticipated that this new magnesium production unit will generate considerably reduced CO2 emissions by comparison with current magnesium industry standards. Industry research shows that magnesium from Pidgeon Process plants (all Chinese plants are currently Pidgeon) generate on average 26.2 kg of CO2 per kg of magnesium. By comparison the electrolytic Qinghai magnesium smelter is expected to generate just 6.5 kg of CO2 per kg of magnesium produced.Under a Cooperation Agreement between QSLM and Magontec, Magontec has an exclusive right to produce generic and specialist magnesium alloys from liquid pure magnesium produced in Golmud by QSLM. On commencement QSLM will directly supply Magontec with 56,000 t/y of liquid pure magnesium. The size of the Qinghai project and the volume of new production of clean and high quality product is expected to promote further development of magnesium applications, say the management of QSLM and Magontec.
Pick Szeged and Csurgó met again in the second match of the semi-final, this time at Csurgó. The teams encountered in the sold out hall of Csurgó, where the fanatic supporters of the home side created a fantastic atmosphere. Szeged took the lead with the early goals of Ancsin and Prodanovic (1-4 at 5 min). The Pick defence was solid with Roland Mikler showing a superb performance in the goal again, thus Szeged romped to a 3-7 lead by the 12th minute. The home team might have felt the burden of the previous match where Szeged won by 11 goals, it was inevitably reflected by their performance. A double two-minute suspension on the Szeged side helped Csurgó to come back into the match, the visiting team was unable to take advantage of the penalties on the home side, while Simon – a Szeged-bred player – scored a magnificent goal with a spinning trick shot. Csurgó came closer and closer before the end of the first half, a 3 goal-lead remained at the side of Szeged by the halftime (9-12). Though Szeged got the lead, the team did not play very well, mainly building upon the mistakes of the hosts with a few individual movements. As far as the home side is concerned, Bence Simon shined for Csurgó.In the second half Csurgó’s attitude changed, they closed the gap due to being more accurate in attack (13-15), and fought back to the draw level (16-16). Hungarian international Pallag gained momentum, Miss did not miss the chances from the wing, unlike in the first half. Szeged was not able to score for 10 minutes; it seemed that Csurgó would manage to win the match (20-17 at 50 min). Zubai kept the team in the match, the Csurgó defence led by Borsos was difficult to fight. Szeged closed up with the 7-meter penalties of Buday and equalized by the final minutes. Buday’s set shot earned a draw for Szeged, the final score was 24-24. The 7-meter-throws were to decide who is going to win. Every Szeged player managed to score, while two of the home side missed his chance, this way the Russian roulette was won by Pick with 4-1 result.Wholehearted Csurgó made Szeged sweat to win, it might have been the routine that helped Szeged to equalize and be more effective in the final phase of the match. Definitely a better performance is needed in the final, where MKB Veszprém is waiting.Top scorers: Simon, Miss (4-4)/ Buday (6), Larholm (4)In the other semi-final: Tatabánya – MKB Veszprém 23-34Text: Gábor Várkonyi, Géza ProhászkaPhoto: www.szegedma.hu ancsinCsurgomiklerPick Szegedprodanovic ← Previous Story Switzerland: Kadetten Schaffhausen with comfortable home over Pfadi Winterthur proceed to finals Next Story → Andrea Lekic for Handball-Planet before D-DAY: “We are ready!”
← Previous Story Group C: Sweden, France and Egypt to eight-finals Next Story → Claude Onesta after draw with Iceland: Good result for us After a thrilling match Poland took a 26:25 victory over Russia.The beginning of the game belong to the Russian team. Poland lost Krzysztof Lijewski already in 3. minute due to a knee injury and his alternate Rojewski didn’t take the best start. Biegler called for a time out already after 5 minutes of the game but it got even worse for Poland. Solid Russian defence and rivals’ mistakes allowed Russia to take 5:1 lead in 9. minute. Polish powerlessness was broken by Rojewski who started making up for his previous mistakes – his two goals and one steal plus Wyszomirski in goal changed the result from 5:1 to 5:4 for Russia in 2 minutes or so. Right after that Poles lost Grabarczyk for 2 minutes but Wyszomirski kept saving throw after throw and in 16. minutes Bartosz Jurecki equalized at 6:6. However, Russia with a very good Bogdanov in goal held on to their one-goal-edge. This situation kept going on this way until the end of the half and the Russian team left the court leading 13:12.The one-goal edge was being kept still for the first 7 minutes of the second half and then Poland, playing short-handed, took their first lead (17:16). But it only motivated Russia – they scored 3 goals in a row and made Poland lose 17:19. Both teams surged back and forth. With 8 minutes to go, the situation of Russia started looking very good when they scored for 24:21. Despite things like missed or disallowed goals, Poland came back to game. In 57. minute Michał Jurecki equalized at 24:24. Szmal started his performance, Bielecki started hitting the net after his bungled beginning. 2 minutes before the final whistle Egor Evdokimov got sent off for 2 minutes. Poland made use of this advantage and Wiśniewski scored the winning goal. Russia still had time to equalize, they entered a libero and had a perfect chance to score but Szmal denied Atman. Poles kept the ball almost until the final whistle and won by one. In the other games of group D Argentina beat Saudi Arabia 32:20 while Denmark drew with Germany 30:30.

Microsoft spent a lot of time in the European Union’s hotseat over anti-competitive practices relating to Internet Explorer a few years back. Eventually, the probe led to the creation of the infamous Browser Ballot screen, which offered denizens of EU member nations a choice of web browser when they first tried to access the Web. Now, Microsoft is facing a new inquiry. As it turns out, Windows 7 SP1 may have prematurely dumped the Ballot — and once again began pushing Internet Explorer on users.It all started in February 2011, which is problematic. Microsoft had previously agreed to leave the Browser Ballot in place until 2014, and may have neglected to show the screen to nearly 30 million users. The probe has only just been initiated, but the EC is taking the matter very seriously. Competition Commissioner Joaquin Almunia stated that Microsoft will once again face sanctions “if infringements are confirmed,” and it sounds as though Microsoft itself has confirmed.In an official statement, the company apologized for the “technical error” that led to the screen’s disappearance. The problem reportedly went undiscovered until July 2nd and Microsoft began implementing a fix the next day. Now, they’re promising to deliver the screen to all affected PCs by the end of the week. It seems, then, that sanctions will be handed down, but we’ll have to wait to see what the EC’s decides to do.Despite all the fuss over the Ballot, it’s been repeatedly shown to have very little impact on browser market share in the European Union. Alternative browsers like Firefox and Opera have long had a strong presence there, and users clearly already knew how to replace the default IE with something more to their liking.Being the default certainly seemed to boost IE share stateside, where brisk sales of new Windows 7 PCs during the 2011 holiday season (and following months) helped drive Microsoft’s first gains in a long, long time. The victories were short-lived, of course, as IE is no longer the most-used browser in the world. The crown has since been stolen by Google Chrome, at least according to Google’s numbers.More at Europa.eu and ZD Net
De nouvelles fuites d’eaux contaminées à FukushimaL’opérateur Tepco a annoncé que des fuites d’eaux radioactives ont eu lieu hier et aujourd’hui sur le site de la centrale de Fukushima. Ce sont 120 tonnes d’eau qui se sont répandues samedi. Tepco tente de transférer l’eau des réservoirs poreux vers de nouvelles installations plus sûres. Comme quoi, après les incidents nucléaires, la situation n’est jamais totalement sous contrôle… Tokyo Electric Power Co, l’opérateur de la centrale de Fukushima, a annoncé dimanche matin qu’une nouvelle fuite d’eau radioactive avait eu lieu sur un de ses réservoirs. 120 tonnes d’eau contaminée s’étaient déjà écoulées samedi.Relayée par Libération, la nouvelle montre que Tepco, deux ans après l’accident de Fukushima, peine toujours à maitriser la centrale. Des pannes à répétition menacent le système de refroidissement alors que d’effroyables quantités de matériaux radioactifs sont encore présentes sur les lieux.Des opérations qui dépassent TepcoSi Tepco a annoncé que la fuite de dimanche était de faible ampleur, l’entreprise a dû avouer que la fuite de samedi avait une activité estimée à 710 milliards de becquerels et qu’elle était bien passée dans le sous-sol. Depuis décembre 2011, “c’est la plus grande quantité de substances radioactives relâchée” a expliqué à Libération Masayuki Ono, porte-parole de l’opérateur.Depuis vendredi, et ce jusqu’à mardi soir, Tepco s’échine à transférer 14 000 tonnes d’eau contaminée vers de nouveaux réservoirs étanches. Mais cela ne suffira pas et, de l’aveu même de l’opérateur, 47 tonnes d’eau irradiée pourraient encore fuir. Un chiffre inquiétant quand on sait que l’océan Pacifique n’est situé qu’à 800 mètres de la centrale et que le taux de césium y est toujours anormalement élevé. Signe s’il en est que la centrale continue de contaminer l’environnement.Les eaux souterraines continuent de s’infiltrer dans les débris de la centrale et sont contaminées par les objets radioactifs qui s‘y trouvent. Tepco stocke déjà 370 000 tonnes de cette eau mais va devoir porter cette capacité à 700 000 tonnes en 2015. Pour remédier à cette tâche colossale, Tepco a entamé des tests pour traiter et décontaminer l’eau. Cela lui permettrait de rejeter dans l’océan des flots propres. Mais pour l’instant la société civile et les pécheurs sont encore loin de faire confiance à une entreprise qui leur a déjà menti et caché de nombreuses informations.

With a hat-trick by the Brazilian and goals from Cavani, Di Maria, and Mbappé, PSG battered Red Star from Belgrade at Parc des Princes.After that first painful defeat from the first Champions League match of the season at Anfield Road, PSG really needed to win their second match this Wednesday against Red Star from Belgrade.This was supposed to be an easier match for the French giants, they of course didn’t disappoint and offered a great performance. But out of all the stars that the French champions have, there is no question that the absolute leader of the team is Neymar Jr who scored a hat-trick and was involved in pretty much all the rest of the goals from his teammates.The Brazilian star began his goal-romp with a beautiful free-kick over the men-barrier only 20 minutes after the match started, it took him only two minutes to get his second goal after a combination with Kylian Mbappé.Past the half-hour of the match, Edinson Cavani took a shot from inside the box and the ball got a deflection that confused the Red Star goalkeeper enough for Edinson to get his goal. But PSG was hungry for more goals, they were just getting started as they wanted to get at least half a dozen.Hat-trick hero 😍😍😍#PSGFKCZ pic.twitter.com/VU445N2csT— Paris Saint-Germain (@PSG_English) October 3, 2018Just a few minutes before halftime, PSG was in the middle of a long build-up that Thomas Meunier took on the right wing. The Belgian full-back saw Di Maria making the run towards the box and he sent a beautiful assist with the outside of his foot, the Argentinean didn’t waste the opportunity and scored his side’s fourth goal of the match right before the half-time whistle.German manager Thomas Tuchel asked his players to slow down a little bit, this is the moment in which players like Neymar can get fouled the most due to the frustration from his rivals. The French champions took note and played a much more reserved style of football until the final 20 minutes, when Kylian Mbappé appeared to score his goal because he obviously didn’t want to miss out on all the fun.PSG ultras sent a warning letter to Neymar Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Brazilian superstar Neymar might play today his first game of the season for Paris Saint-Germain and the team’s ultras have warned him.Neymar was involved in the goal again, he saw Cavani making the run towards the box and dinked the ball for him to send the assist to the French lad, who only pushed the ball inside. It was already 5-0 at Parc des Princes, German midfielder Marko Marin was able to pull one back for Red Star with 15 minutes from the final whistle.But the star of the night, Neymar Jr wanted to get that hat-trick in order to feel that he was closer to his best form and he did it in style. With nine minutes still left on the clock, the Brazilian start took another free-kick but he did it with a lot more power and collocation than his first goal of the evening and gave PSG their sixth goal of the match for a convincing victory in the Champions League.Unfortunately for the French champions, this win tells us absolutely nothing in regards to the club’s actual level of performance. Red Star from Belgrade can hardly be considered a worthy opponent that can challenge them at all, we are going to have to wait for them to play against Napoli in the next two matches to know how well they can respond against a more competitive opponent.Also, in Ligue 1, PSG will play against Olympique Lyonnais on Sunday before the final international break of 2018. Neymar will get a new chance to prove his worth again, but today’s performance was more than enough for him to keep earning that lost confidence he had before, during, and right after the summer.FULL TIME: PSG flex their offensive 💪in the @ChampionsLeague with a 6-1 win over Red Star Belgrade! #PSGFKCZ #ALLEZPARIS!! 🔴🔵 pic.twitter.com/4F5XPRBdyw— Paris Saint-Germain (@PSG_English) October 3, 2018Which of these was your favorite goal from PSG against Red Star from Belgrade?

Everyone seeks love, but barely recognise what love is or the countless ways it can thrive. True love involves all beautiful virtues of friendship and is like magic. Love can transform one’s life and fill it with sweetness and grace. But sadly, the artist says that we hardly step into our inner world to enjoy that depth of love, it is the language that every heart speaks and understands, which cannot be expressed in words.“I have tried to express the feeling of love through my paintings. I have created a mystery in each of my artwork for the viewers to unfold in their own way. Love has motivated me to express my dreams and thoughts into action in the form of my exquisite paintings,” said the artist.“Mystery of Love” resolves around the notion of mystic womanhood which is powerful beyond measure and beautiful beyond description. The paintings represent the understanding of love from a feminine point of view and has some amounts of surrealism to them. One may explore the “Mystery of Love” through this personal portrayal of the most sought after word in the globe.
The peppery taste of watercress is due to the compound phenethyl isothiocyanate, which blocks the action of a protein that helps cancerous tumors grow. Scientists also found that watercress turns off signals sent out by cancer cells for more oxygen and blood, and increases the ability of healthy cells to resist free radical damage (which is also thought to be a precursor to cancer). Although the headlines are appealing, the studies involved used very small samples and are not conclusive. More research into watercress needs to be done to validate these claims. However, watercress is considered a super food, as it contains many nutrients and soluble fiber. For example:B vitamins and glucosinolates, which support liver function and thus our ability to detoxify the body. A sluggish liver can lead to many health problems including fatigue, poor digestion, mood swings and poor memory. A relatively high quantity of vitamin A, a nutrient that helps maintain the health of membranes i.e. our skin and internal membranes such as our intestines. A good source of specific phytonutrients, including lutein, which can maintain eye health, as well as antioxidants which can help protect cells from free radical attack and consequent DNA damage, which can influence the aging process and contribute to the development of cancer. Zinc and vitamin C, both of which help maintain overall health as well as support the immune system. Vitamin K. This has been in the news lately, with researchers discovering a barrage of health benefits such as preventing osteoporosis and heart attacks as well as the previously known benefit of blood clotting. However, be aware that the version of vitamin K from watercress only supports blood clotting, although in the body it can be converted to the bone density and cardiac protecting version. As vitamin K is a fat-soluble vitamin, consuming your watercress with a little fat such as olive oil will help absorption in the body.One caution with watercress is that it is naturally high in iodine. Given that salt is fortified with iodine here in Costa Rica, anyone with hyperthyroidism should take care with watercress consumption. It can also interact with some common drugs such as blood thinners and antibiotics. Talk to your doctor or nutritionist if you are concerned that your meds could be causing such problems.We can thus conclude that although it is not certain that watercress can prevent cancer, it should be beneficial to your health when included as part of your daily or even weekly diet. Try it in wraps, sandwiches, salads, pesto, as a soup or simply as a generous garnish.

This is not a recent revelation, as five years ago Irish scientists found that a daily intake of watercress reduced DNA damage to blood cells. DNA damage is considered a cancer trigger.

The progressive perspective of any country depends upon the cultural and historical roots. The promotion of the country revolves around the route to reach the destination. I traversed through the route to reach the roots of Uzbek at a stupefying ambience of the vibrant Surajkund Crafts Mela 2018 with immersive cultural ethos. The location of Uzbekistan in the centre of Eurasian continent allowed it to play a key role in the trans-continental system of the Great Silk Roads. As a matter of fact, main routes of the Great Silk Roads uniting East and West passed through the territory of present-day Uzbekistan, which was one of the places, where the first civilisations emerged and developed.A historic trade route was used from the second century BC through 14th century AD that went from China to the Mediterranean. The Silk Route is so named because of the popularity of trading silk during that period. This valuable fabric originated in China, which initially had a monopoly on its silk production, until the secrets of its creation spread. The Silk Route traversed China, India, Persia, Arabia, Greece and Italy. In addition to silk, the route facilitated the trade of other fabrics, spices, grains, fruits and vegetables, animal hides, wood and metal work, precious stones and other items of value.The Silk Route served as a means not only to exchange goods but also to exchange cultures. Both the travellers of the road and the residents of the cities along the route benefited from learning each other’s language, religion and ideas, in addition to the increased material wealth that the trade generated. These interactions, in turn, boosted the development of science, technology, literature, the arts and other fields of study. Specifically interactions along the Silk Route helped to lead to the development of the printing press and irrigation.Uzbek cities such as Samarkand, Bukhara, Khiva, Tashkent, Termez, Urgench and Fergana served as land beacons along the Silk Road.

The ancient cities rich in fine architectural monuments preserve the memory of many centuries.

“Strawberries are an expensive crop to put into the ground — about AUD$50,000 per hectare including plants, labor, plastic mulch and tents over the top.“After the losses last year many growers simply won’t have the funds to plant their normal-sized crops, so plantings will be substantially down.”Michael, of Ti Produce at Bullsbrook, said strawberry farms on the outskirts of Perth averaged four to eight hectares and there were about 50 growers operating in the area.Land which is not planted to strawberries is not used for alternative crops, rather a cover crop will be put on to protect the soil from wind, according to the article.Michael said confidence from consumers had started to recover after farmworker My Ut Trinh was charged in Queensland over contaminating goods with the intent to cause economic loss.
