Dont Forget Me Film Reminds Morocco of its Children with Autism

Rabat- The documentary, which will premiere on November 17 at Rabat’s 23rd film festival at Mohammed VI Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art, may be just as its title suggests: A plea for the world to care for and not forget about its children with autism.“Don’t Forget Me” depicts the challenges that Moroccan parents and their children with autism have to deal with in a society that is not yet equipped to handle autism.In 28 minutes, the documentary will showcase the different facets of autism and the discrimination children experience, denying them the right to receive education at school like their peers without disabilities. The short film, produced by American journalist Jackie Spinner and directed by Moroccan Rajae Bouardi, was inspired by Spinner’s two Moroccan-born adopted children with autism, 5-year-old Samir and 3-year-old Rafi.Souad Chelhani, whose twin boys are featured in the film, wanted to give her children a voice.“We are their voices. We must show our children that it is wrong for society to be cruel and refuse to include them. They have a human right to exist, to live without prejudice. They have the right to go to school, ” Chelhani said.Difficulty going to school “Don’t Forget Me” follows the story of three families and their children on the autism spectrum. The documentary takes the viewer into the homes and schools of the children.Momo, 11, goes to a public school with a classroom reserved for children with autism. But the classroom in the public school is not free. Momo’s education expenses weigh on his family, and the private association that runs the classroom “recruits families for the classroom based on their ability to pay.”The second family is that of 7-year-old Hamza who also goes to a public school. Hamza’s family pays for an aide or “shadow,” who accompanies him to school. Hamza has a twin brother, Taha, but because the family cannot afford two aides, Taha stays at home. The third family is Othmane’s who goes to a private school on a scholarship. His family, like Hamza’s, pays for an aide who keeps him company at class. Othmane was born in the same hospital three days before Samir, Spinner’s son.Spinner adopted her sons from an orphanage in Meknes when they were infants. The boys now live in the US. In 2017, Spinner came back to Morocco to make the documentary.Columbia College Chicago and the Pulitzer Center for Crisis Reporting provided the initial funding for the documentary through grants. Moroccan filmmaker Hakim Belabbes and Chicago director Michael Rabiger advised the project.“Don’t Forget Me” will feature in Arabic with English subtitles for US audiences and Tamazight (Berber) subtitles for a Moroccan audience. Spinner touched on a spot-on truth in Morocco when it comes to autism.“It’s sad to see how hard the parents of the Moroccan boys in the film work to find opportunities that I take for granted, including the right my sons have in America to go to school,” she stated.Read Also: 8-Year-Old Moroccan Wins Turkey Arithmetic CompetitionMorocco’s forgotten children Myths and misinformation surrounding autism are still prevalent in Morocco. The lack of understanding of the condition makes it hard for people with autism to become active members of Moroccan society.“People with autism are violent,” “People with autism are intellectually deranged,” “Children with autism are a result of bad parenting and can be cured.” The sentiments are some of the myths surrounding autism in Morocco, but perhaps the most dangerous of all is the belief that autism is, in itself, a myth.Autism, also called Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD), is a spectrum condition. As defined by the World Health Organization (WHO), autism is “a range of conditions characterised by some degree of impaired social behaviour, communication and language, and a narrow range of interests and activities that are both unique to the individual and carried out repetitively.”WHO estimates that 1 in 160 children worldwide have autism. Morocco has no relevant official data for autism numbers. Caring for children on the spectrum is demanding, especially those with severe autism. It is especially difficult when access to specialized healthcare services is inadequate.In Morocco, healthcare focused on autism is nearly non-existent. Parents face unbearable obstacles and are left to deal with their autistic children alone. Children with autism, without early intervention, make it even harder for their parents and for them to benefit from the most basic rights.Morocco’s already ailing educational system, does not provide much scope for children to study freely. The children with autism sometimes find a small space in classrooms in public schools, like Hamza and Momo.The lack of research or medical training specialized in autism is one of the biggest issues causing misconceptions and lack of awareness about autism in Morocco.In contrast to people with autism being “violent,” as many perceive them to be, some children with autism are in fact the ones most vulnerable to violence.One video which went viral in 2016 shocked viewers across the internet, depicting abusive treatment towards people with autism.The video showed the president of the “Besma Association for Autistic People” beating his sister with autism in the Rabia al-Adawiyya school yard in Taroudant, near Agadir.Autism therapist Imane Haddouch had said then, “The president’s behavior is criminal and he should be punished for his actions. His punishment will serve as an example to others who commit similar crimes that they too will be punished for carrying out such acts on autistic children who are unable to talk about the abuse they face.”At the time, the Regional Directorate of the Ministry of Education in Taroudant promised to deal with the offender severely. Moroccans with autism can take hope and find support in the autism associations in Morocco, such as Collectif Autisme Maroc in Rabat or Association Sos Autisme of Casablanca. The associations aim to help families dealing with autism, no matter the obstacles. read more

Annan urges Bolivian political parties to resolve differences quickly and hold elections

“The Secretary-General is following closely the political developments in Bolivia, and expressed concern about the critical junction the country is going through,” Stephane. Dujarric said.Mr. Annan also offered the help of the UN in finding solutions to the challenges Bolivia is facing, he added.The elections are the result of a decision made this July by Bolivia’s Parliament to hold presidential, vice-presidential, parliamentary and prefecto (regional gubernatorial) elections in December.That decision followed civil unrest and growing political opposition which caused the resignation of then-President Carlos Mesa, and the interim appointment in June of Eduardo Rodriguez to the post by the Bolivian congress and senate.

As UN atomic chief heads to Iran Annan appeals for a cool

With the head of the United Nations Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), Mohammed ElBaradei, on his way to Tehran for talks with Iran on resuming cooperation with the nuclear non-proliferation regime, Secretary-General Kofi Annan appealed today for all involved to “cool down” their rhetoric and actively search for a diplomatic solution.“Yes, they have pursued their research,” Mr. Annan said of the Iranian claim that the country has already successfully enriched uranium in defiance of the international community, as he spoke to journalists at The Hague in the Netherlands this morning.“But I hope they will be able to come back to the table and work with the international community to find a negotiated solution,” he added. Recalling that Iran has all along maintained that its intent is to develop peaceful uses of nuclear energy for the country, he said that if that indeed is the case, “they should be able to give the international community that assurance and work with everybody to find a solution out of this.” “I appeal to everyone to work more actively in search of a diplomatic solution and to cool down on the rhetoric and not to escalate,” he said.On 29 March, in its first official action after the matter was referred to it by the IAEA, the UN Security Council called on Iran to re-establish full and sustained suspension of all enrichment-related and reprocessing activities, including research and development, in a manner that is verified by the Agency.In 2003, it was discovered that Iran had carried out secret nuclear activities for 18 years in breach of its obligations under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT), and some countries, the United States among them, claim that Iran is trying to develop nuclear weapons, which Iran denies. read more

Blender Foundation releases another stunning film called Tears of Steel

first_imgWhen you think about how a movie is made, most people don’t think about the software used. We think about the cameras, the actors, or the writers. Sure, we expect brilliant special effects in almost everything we watch, but few people understand the software used.Blender is one of the many software suites that can be used to make 3D content in movies. What sets Blender apart from the rest lies in the open source nature of the software suite. To help show off what a totally open source movie would look like, the Blender Foundation have released several shorts showcasing the toolset. You may remember the fantastic Sintel released back in 2010.  Now we have another short film from the foundation, this one is called Tears of Steel.Tears of Steel is sci-fi short that demonstrates the potentially severe consequences of breaking up with an emotionally unstable robotics genius for vanity reasons. The film is jam packed with tons of special effects, ranging from giant robots to entire 3D landscapes seemingly projected over another environment. Visually the film is great and does a fantastic job of showcasing the power of the Blender suite, which ultimately is the goal of the film from the perspective of the Blender Foundation. What really makes the whole project significant is the DVD set that is being released with the film. This 12 minute video is being released as a four DVD set, including everything you would need to re-create the film from scratch on your home computer.The set includes all of the studio data and software used to create the special effects used in Tears of Steel, as well as step-by-step tutorials for creating some of the 3D content that was used in the film. One disc includes all of the RAW footage that was recorded as well as a documentary covering the making of. All of the content in the DVD’s are licensed under a Creative Commons 3.0 license, which means that anyone can reuse and even make money off of the content provided in the DVDs as long as you provide proper attribution.For $43 it’s a great investment. The DVDs will start shipping on October 12.Read more at the Tears of Steel websitelast_img read more

If this guy is clearly way better than everybody else in his

first_img‘If this guy is clearly way better than everybody else in his peer group, then it makes sense’ Andy Dunne and The42′s Murray Kinsella discuss Munster prospect Keynan Knox and the issue of recruiting players out of school abroad. SOUTH AFRICAN YOUNGSTER Keynan Knox was among five Munster players to receive a contract extension on Wednesday, with the soon-to-be Irish-qualified tighthead prop penning a deal which ties him to the southern province until 2022.South African born and bred, Knox was signed straight out of school in late 2017 along with compatriot Matt More, an outside centre.The prodigious front-row talent was one of the topics of conversation on this week’s The42 Rugby Weekly, in which Murray Kinsella and Andy Dunne pondered as to whether this type of recruitment is detrimental to the sport in Ireland or potentially beneficial in small doses.A word of warning: Eddie Hekenui is mentioned seven times during this discussion. Keynan Knox, a potential future Irish international. Source: Bryan Keane/INPHOMurray Kinsella: “He (Knox) will stay in the academy next year, and then for the remaining two years of that contract he’ll go to the senior squad.“He came over with another South African youngster, Matt More, just at the end of 2017. So, they’ll actually qualify for Ireland in the three-year period rather than the five-year period.“I just want to get your take on it, Andy. Like, his pedigree is superb: he came out of that Michaelhouse school that produced Pat Lambie, Robbie Diack, a couple of other guys who have gone on to achieve things. He played for the Sharks in that Craven Week, which is a massive schoolboy competition.“Knox was rated as one of the best prospects in the country (South Africa), as was Matt Moore. Interestingly enough, they have the same agent as Johann van Graan so there’s the link there.“I just want to get your (Andy’s) take on it. I tend to get tweets about him from a lot of angry people, probably outside Munster, saying it’s wrong that at this level, they’re taking a South African schoolboy and trying to produce him.”Andy Dunne: “Ultimately, I think I’m okay with it. If he becomes someone who is a cornerstone of the Munster pack and the Irish pack — there’s nobody harumphing about CJ Stander who was born and bred in South Africa.Suddenly, if it happens five years earlier at academy level, I get that there’s going to be some pretty disenfranchised young tightheads, and parents of tightheads, and coaches of that tighthead in the schools system. But as long as it doesn’t become prevalent on a scale that there’s five or six of them coming through every year to step in the way — if this guy is clearly way better than everybody else in his peer group, then it makes sense.“I think where it goes wrong — and Leinster have completely changed their policy on this — [but] Leinster in the mid-’90s used to get guys in from the southern hemisphere and, like, they were horrible, horrible duds. They were awful rugby players but they had a southern-hemisphere accent.“You’re talking about guys like Tony Goldfinch, Aaron — I can’t remember, Aaron…”MK: “– Eddie Hekenui?”AD: “Eddie Hekenui is right in there!”MK: “Poor old Eddie Hekenui, the much-maligned Eddie Hekenui…”AD: “Yeah, maligned because they weren’t good enough! And in my personal [experience], I was certainly behind Eddie. You know, Nathan Spooner was brought in. He was brilliant. He was an international player and he was established.Eddie Hekenui was a third-division club player who was a forklift driver. Nothing against that! But he wasn’t a professional rugby player. But he was brought in ahead of a young Irish professional: me! Obviously, I’m still annoyed about that one. That doesn’t make sense, but Nathan Spooner coming in does. The Tony Goldfinch/Eddie Hekenui thing I get people being annoyed about. But this guy [Keynan Knox] appears, from what I’ve heard, to be an outstanding prospect, will be Irish-qualified and [I hope] is more of a once-off-type policy than ‘let’s use this going forward in general’. Source: The42 Rugby Weekly/SoundCloudSubscribe to our new podcast, The42 Rugby Weekly, here: MK: “It’s a professional sport. Obviously, rugby is years and years and decades behind football, but that’s the way it’s gone in that sport because you’re under so much pressure to achieve and succeed and fill your stadium.“In Munster’s eyes, Keynan Knox is a better prospect than the local tightheads were in that age grade. He is an exciting prospect for Munster fans, and I guess that’s the nature of the game now.”Also discussed on this week’s show was ‘Snotgate’ and Nico Lee’s ban for on-field crimes of the nasal variety, as well as London Irish potentially becoming a ‘fifth province’, Johnny Sexton’s need for game time ahead of the Rugby World Cup and the most interesting aspects of the first week of the new Super Rugby season.Joy Neville also joins the podcast to discuss her remarkable rise as a referee, and you can also read that interview here.You can listen to this week’s The42 Rugby Weekly below:Murray Kinsella, Andy Dunne and Gavan Casey look ahead to Ireland’s Six Nations meeting with Italy and discuss the week’s biggest stories in the latest episode of The42 Rugby Weekly. 35,700 Views Sexton ‘definitely hasn’t played enough rugby to be at full tilt yet’ Share Tweet Email 47 Comments center_img Subscribe Short URL Thursday 21 Feb 2019, 10:00 PM Feb 21st 2019, 6:24 PM By The42 Team Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

SpaceX Falcon Heavy and Starhopper could soon get off the ground

first_img 0 Elon Musk Space SpaceX Share your voice Tags Static fire of Falcon Heavy complete—targeting April 9 launch of Arabsat-6A from Launch Complex 39A in Florida— SpaceX (@SpaceX) April 5, 2019 Post a commentcenter_img Smoke billowed out of 27 Merlin engines on a SpaceX Falcon Heavy rocket Friday at Florida’s Kennedy Space Center. The big spacecraft didn’t move though; this was just a test in preparation for the Heavy’s first commercial launch, set for next week.Meanwhile at a SpaceX facility in Boca Chica, Texas, the company is preparing an early prototype of its next-generation Mars rocket for its first taste of real air time. A single-engine “hopper” version of the company’s “Starship” was test-fired for the first time very briefly on Wednesday evening. The Starhopper is meant for short, low-altitude test flights and landings as part of the development process for the big ship SpaceX hopes will send a Japanese billionaire and a handful of artists around the moon in 2023.The US Federal Aviation Administration has posted an airspace closure of up to 1,000 feet high for the area around the Boca Chica facility. That goes into effect Friday at 2 p.m CT until 7:01 p.m. Saturday. The reason listed for the closure is “to provide a safe environment for rocket launch and recovery.”  Sci-Tech We’ll keep an eye on both these big rockets, and we’ll also let you know how to watch next week’s Falcon Heavy launch, which could be followed by the first-ever landing of three Falcon rockets. Only two of Heavy’s core rocket stages landed successfully following the big demonstration launch last year.  But as of this writing, fog is limiting visibility on the far south Texas coast to practically zero, so we may not get to see Starhopper hop. Back in Florida, plans appear to be firming up for the first Falcon Heavy launch we’ve seen since the demonstration version sent Elon Musk’s red Tesla on a long journey around Mars. SpaceX announced via Twitter that the static fire test Friday was a success and the new target date to launch Heavy with commercial communications satellite Arabsat-6A aboard is Tuesday, April 9. last_img read more

Who Killed Det Sean Suiter

first_imgBy J. K. Schmid, Special to the AFRODetective Sean Suiter was murdered November 15, 2017, in the 900 block of Baltimore’s Harlem Park.It has been over five months since his death. Baltimore City Police Department (BPD) Commissioner Darryl De Sousa still regularly meets with Suiter’s widow, he says.“It’s still heavy in her heart and heavy in the heart of all of us in the Baltimore City Police Department,” De Sousa said at a press conference April 12.Det. Sean Suiter, an 18-year veteran of the Baltimore Police Department, was shot in the head while investigating a murder in West Baltimore, Nov. 15. He died from his injuries about 24 hours after the shooting. (Courtesy photo)At the same press conference, De Sousa announced the creation of an independent review board (IRB) and that the city will be hiring CNA Analysis and Solutions to review seemingly every aspect of the case and the department’s handling of it.The Board of Estimates was asked to authorize the execution of a memorandum of understanding April 18.“The BPD, after consultation and approval from the Independent Review Board, desires to retain and the services of the CNA to provide analytic and staff support to the BPD and the review board during this process,” the request reads.The request is for $149,046.97 to be paid to CNA for its services. AFRO questions to the BPD asking for an explanation of what this seemingly small sum could pay for went unanswered at the time of this writing.The independent investigation is expected to take six months, meaning something on the order of $25,000 each month will be available to the IRB.AFRO questions to the specifics of the establishment of the IRB were also left unanswered. It can be inferred from De Sousa’s answers to other questions at the press conference that CNA was hired first, and then the IRB’s panel of experts and investigators were hired later.The IRB is co-chaired by CNA members James “CHIPS” Stewart, Director of Public Safety, Senior Fellow for Law Enforcement, and James R. “Chip” Coldren, Jr., Ph.D., Managing Director, Justice Group.According to De Sousa, CNA was selected due to their satisfactory handling of high-profile BPD crises such as the police killings of Black Baltimoreans Anthony Anderson, and Tyrone West and the friendly fire incident that killed Black Baltimore police officer William Torbit and Sean Gamble.Last year, the BPD settled with the Anderson family for $300,000, four years after his death in police custody. Since Anderson’s death in 2013, Baltimore has also borne witness to the death of Freddie Gray in police custody in 2015. Tawanda Jones, Tyrone West’s sister, has scheduled another West Wednesday for April 18 “demanding accountability for the police murder of Tyrone West, and accountability in every case of police brutality.”De Sousa cited CNA’s recommendation that Black plainclothes officers wear larger body-width “police” labels in order to keep themselves safe from fellow officers as another success.With federal agents declining to investigate, there may be nowhere else to turn.CNA is being asked to investigate the death of Detective Suiter and not just analyze policy and procedure. The IRB will be able to interview witnesses, but will have no subpoena or arrest power.Stewart is a former commander with the Oakland Police Department Criminal Investigation Division. Last year, Oakland PD was scandalized when an officer accused multiple fellow officers of the statutory rape of a police dispatcher’s daughter.“We’re gonna follow where the evidence leads us and we are gonna provide some conclusions,” Stewart said.last_img read more

Game dev Kixeye countersues Zynga for scaring off potential employees

first_imgOnline game development company Kixeye is fighting back against Zynga after it was added to a lawsuit about an employee divulging trade secrets. Kixeye calls the allegations unfounded, and has now filed a countersuit against Zynga, claiming all the company wants to do is just use the guise of legal action to look into its internal documents. The entire case is based on allegations that a former Zynga employee stole confidential documents and revealed trade secrets.The two video game companies are quickly becoming bitter rivals. Numerous Zynga employees, worried about the company’s financial future, have jumped ship to join Kixeye because of its quick growth over the last couple of years. One of those employees is Alan Patmore, who managed Zynga’s CityVille studio until earlier this year. Before his resignation, though, Patmore transferred 700 internal files to a Dropbox account, according to Zynga’s lawsuit.Zynga claims Patmore exposed at least some of those files to Kixeye, which is why Kixeye has been added to the lawsuit. Kixeye’s countersuit, however, says it did not receive any of Zynga’s trade secrets and thinks the company is using the suit as an attempt to scare any other employees who are considering a job at Kixeye.Kixeye is known as a “midcore” developer, a recent term that refers to games that are more sophisticated than those found in the casual space, but not quite as intense as the more hardcore titles. Zynga has been encroaching on that space, and Kixeye says it thinks Zynga will use this lawsuit as a way to force the company to turn over its internal documents.Kixeye not only wants Zynga’s lawsuit to be thrown out, but it wants Zynga to be mandated to tell all of its employees that they can seek other jobs without the fear of threat or bogus lawsuits.via Gamasutralast_img read more
