Ministry of Commerce declined to ban some Egyptian agricultural products from entering Kuwait

"Trade" retreat from the "retreat"!

After the Ministry of Commerce declined to ban some Egyptian agricultural products from entering Kuwait, and only three days after the Ministry of Commerce and Industry issued a decision to lift the ban on the import of Egyptian agricultural products, which includes all types of varieties of onions, guava, lettuce and pepper, according to press reports, citing reliable sources that Minister of Commerce and Industry Acting Minister of Youth Khaled Al-Rawdan issued a decree canceling the previous decision and re-ban the importation of these products again due to the high percentage of pesticide residues from the permissible limits contained in the approved standard specifications and the maximum limits And h out of pesticide residues in agricultural and food products.

The sources pointed out that the new ban came to the Ministry's concern for the safety and health of citizens and that the products are good and sound and suitable specifications for human consumption, stressing that Minister Roudhan said: We will not risk the health of the Kuwaiti people at any cost. Following the decision to ban Egyptian products, especially onions, the crisis continues and prices continue to rise as their causes continue, which is the lack of onions in the local market, according to An-Nahar.

First of all, I would like to apologize from the bottom of my heart and to say that I did not really mean to insult or mock or hurt
anyone.

I did not mean to cause or to be the reason for negativity.

I’m an actress and a comedian, and you know, my job is to sometimes impersonate and imitate languages, different and various
dialects.

I do actors, anchors, celebrities, and you know, I do it with a little bit exaggeration to just to add a comic factor.

I’ve never meant to insult anyone and never, it was never meant to be serious.

You know what I mean?

I hope you guys, understand where I’m coming from.

All I want is to throw a smile on your faces, no more, no less.

Please accept my apologies.

Deadly earthquakes could hit a BILLION people next year because of the earth's slowing rotation

Swarms of devastating earthquakes are set to arrive next year due to the slowing of Earth's rotation, scientists claim.

Experts warn we 'had it easy this year' with just six severe earthquakes.

Next year we could have at least 20 serious earthquakes, and the most intense ones are expected to occur in tropical regions, home to around one billion people. 

Tiny changes in the speed of our planet's rotation will trigger huge seismic activity by releasing vast amounts of underground energy, experts claim - although their research has been rejected by some scientists. 

Swarms of devastating earthquakes are set to arrive next year due to the slowing of the Earth's rotation, scientists claim. A car lies crushed by debris from the 7.3-magnitude earthquake in the city of Sarpol-e-Zahab in western Iran
 

The planet's rotation is slowing down because of tidal forces between Earth and the moon.  

The side of Earth closest to the moon feels its pull the strongest, while the side farthest from the moon feels its gravity less. 

That difference in gravitational pull stretches the Earth, which causes tidal bulges.

These bulges pull the moon closer or farther away from Earth by around 4cm per year.

The moon exerts the opposite force on them, pulling them back toward it, creating friction and slowing down the planet's rotation.

The time the Earth takes to make a complete rotation on its axis varies by about a millionth of a second per day. 

While the rotational rate hasn't declined evenly,  the average day has grown longer by between 15 millionths and 25 millionths of a second every year.  

Scientists from the University of Colorado in Boulder and the University of Montana say that even fluctuations of a millisecond could increase seismic activity.

'The correlation between Earth's rotation and earthquake activity is strong and suggests there is going to be an increase in numbers of intense earthquakes next year,' Dr Roger Bilham from the University of Colorado told the Observer. 

 

EARTHQUAKE SWARMS

Researchers found five periods in the past century when there were more earthquakes than other times.

On these five occasions, there was a 25 to 30 per cent increase in the number of earthquakes with a magnitude of 7 or above.

These all coincided with a slowing in the rotation of the Earth, scientists found.

Experts do not know exactly why this happens but believe minuscule variations in rotation causes a shift in the shape of the Earth's iron and nickel 'inner core'.

This in turn changes the liquid outer core on which the Earth's tectonic plates rest. 

'The mechanism we've come up with is that as the Earth slows down it's like a skater spinning on ice. As the Earth slows down it's equatorial diameter reduces,' Dr Bilham told BBC Inside Science. 

'Its (the Earth's) waistline gets smaller, but its clothes, the tectonic plates on Earth, remain the same size, which means they get rumpled up.'

'These tiny changes to the overall shape of the Earth are enough, if there are faults that are already ready to go ... to kind of kick them over into failure,' she said.

 

Experts, who presented their findings at the annual meeting of the Geological Society of America, do not know exactly why this happens but believe minuscule variations in rotation causes a shift in the shape of the Earth's iron and nickel 'inner core'.

During these periods the Earth's mantle sticks a little more to the crust, which changes how outer core flows, creating a mismatch between the speed of the solid crust and the mantle.

Experts do not know exactly why this happens but believe minuscule variations in rotation causes a shift in the shape of the Earth's iron and nickel 'inner core' which eventually changes the liquid outer core on which the Earth's tectonic plates rest

This in turn changes the liquid outer core on which the Earth's tectonic plates rest. 

'The mechanism we've come up with is that as the Earth slows down it's like a skater spinning on ice. As the Earth slows down it's equatorial diameter reduces,' Dr Bilham told BBC Inside Science.

'Next year, we should see a significant increase in the numbers of severe earthquakes. 

'We have had it easy this year. So far, we have only had about six severe earthquakes', he said.

'We could easily have 20 a year starting in 2018.' 

Since 1990, more than 80 per cent of all magnitude 7 earthquakes on the eastern Caribbean plate boundary have occurred in the five years following a maximum deceleration.

During these periods there could be up to 30 intense earthquakes every year, while the rest of the time the average figure was around 15 quakes.

'The Earth is offering us a five-year heads-up on future earthquakes', said Dr Bilham, who said the Earth began a slowdown more than four years ago.

Researchers found delayed global seismic productivity is most pronounced at equatorial latitudes 10°N-30°S. 

Many geologists are sceptical about the findings, with some claiming the correlation between earthquake phenomenon and the Earth's rotation are fortuitous.

'It appears to be a conference presentation and very preliminary rather than peer reviewed research, so there is no detail for us to examine,' said GNS Science communications manager John Callan.

'It is true there have been periods of elevated rates of large earthquakes in the past 100 years. However, if you go looking for correlations with other natural phenomenon, you will almost certainly find some interesting matches.'

This research comes just after a 7.3-magnitude earthquake struck Iran, leaving at least 400 people killed and more than 6,000 injured.

The quake hit 19 miles southwest of Halabja in Iraqi Kurdistan at around 9.20pm on Sunday, when many people would have been at home. More than 100 aftershocks followed.

 

WHY DOES EARTH'S ROTATION SLOW?

The planet's rotation is slowing down because of tidal forces between Earth and the moon.  

The side of Earth closest to the moon feels its pull the strongest, while the side farthest from the moon feels its gravity less. 

That difference in gravitational pull stretches the Earth, which causes tidal bulges.

These bulges pull the moon closer or farther away from Earth by around 4cm per year.

The moon exerts the opposite force on them, pulling them back toward it, creating friction and slowing down the planet's rotation.

The time the Earth takes to make a complete rotation on its axis varies by about a millionth of a second per day. 

While the rotational rate hasn't declined evenly,  the average day has grown longer by between 15 millionths and 25 millionths of a second every year. 

Within this general slowing, the Earth goes through regular periods where it slows down and speeds up. 

The world's rotation changes slightly due to shifts in winds and the movement of fluid in the Earth's interior - even El Nino can affect the planet's rotation.

These slow-downs happen around every three decades and line up with clusters of earthquakes.

The Egyptian onion crisis, which has hit the country's markets during the last few days, entered a new turn yesterday, as the land customs department seized shipments of Egyptian onions from the UAE with an Indian certificate of origin. 

Murdoon al-Qabas reported that the seized shipments amounted to about 220 tons, and the Customs Department would send a request to the concerned authorities in the UAE to stop sending Egyptian onions with an Indian certificate of origin or others. 

The suppliers pointed out that the "customs" referred the seized shipments to the concerned authorities, pointing out that the prices of onions are still high because of the lack of supply in the form of vegetables and cooperative societies, especially that the Indian onion is suspended because of delays in the results of the examination, in addition to the destruction of a large number of shipments Because of its lack of validity.They pointed out that the available onions at the moment is Dutch and Spanish, and the prices range in associations to the size of 18 kg between 14 and 17 dinars, stressing that this price is very expensive. 

They pointed out that the decision to import from some countries is not settled, because of the differences between the Ministry of Commerce and the Food Authority and the Customs Administration, as each administration has unclear conditions, and ultimately the victim is the consumer, pointing out that the lack of control eat our health.

The Chairman of the Kuwait Federation of Food Traders and Manufacturers, Abdullah Al-Baeijan, stressed the importance of human health through the provision of healthy and safe food, praising the regulatory body in the country. Al-Bayajan said in a press statement yesterday that there is a need to establish other laboratories at border crossings. It is not possible to have only one laboratory in Kuwait for more than forty years, and this laboratory can not individually check all samples of foodstuffs received in the country. 

"We have repeatedly called for the establishment of laboratories at the border crossing points to counter the increasing importation of foodstuffs into the country, so that this will not lead to higher commodity prices in the markets.He pointed out that the presence of more than one laboratory expedites the examination of samples of missions, and avoids importing companies any losses or bear heavy rents for imported shipments as a result of renting them in warehouses, and the presence of these laboratories will accelerate the introduction of these food in the market, occasion. 

He added that the prices of clearance and handling are exaggerated in Kuwait. He wondered: Is it reasonable that the expenses include 24 items, and up to 220 dinars for the container capacity of 20 feet, and up to 400 dinars for the container capacity of 40 feet

ANNOUNCEMENT : KUWAIT TRAFFIC LAW FOR DRIVERS & PASSANGERS

The issue of towing vehicles as a punishment for the violators of the seatbelt and the use of the phone while driving and ascend the sidewalks to the top of the scene after a split witnessed by the community and the retreat of the «interior» implementation about 12 hours after the validity of the resolution. The meeting held by the Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Sheikh Khalid Al-Jarrah with the Ministry's leadership led to new directives that appeared in the press conference held by Assistant Undersecretary for Traffic Affairs Maj. Gen. Fahd Al-Shuaoui that "no retreat or postponement of the application of vehicle booking." However, In consideration of humanitarian cases as well as the duration of the withdrawal, which will be from one to two months depending on the type of violation and the violator and whether he has a previous record ». 
But said that the first days of application were there to take into account the humanitarian considerations as it released 1000 violations and withdrew about 400 vehicles.

Major General Al-Shawi stressed the importance of the elderly, women, people with special needs and families.

He pointed out that since the first day of the implementation of the decision, it has been positively reflected. Accident rates decreased from 375 incidents on Tuesday, 14 to 264 incidents on Wednesday (the day of implementation of the decision). Traffic violations decreased from 4000 parking violations to 150 violations.

If a vehicle owner or owner of the vehicle is hired to leave the vehicle, the driver will be returned within 48 hours and the violator will be required to hand over the driver's license for the period appropriate to the vehicle. Violation.

For his part, the Director General of the Department of Public Relations and Security Media Brigadier Adel Al-Hashash, rejected the accusations against the leaders of the ministry to question the contracts and that the aim is to raise, explaining that the contract with the new company came after the public transport company demanded during the renewal of the contract to increase prices and raise the reservation fee Cars from 10 dinars to 25 dinars, as well as increase accommodation fees from dinars to 3 plots of land.

In a press conference held yesterday at the headquarters of the General Directorate of Traffic in the presence of Director General of Public Relations and Moral Guidance Brig. Adel Al-Hashash and Director of the Investigation Department, Colonel Mohammed Al-Saidi said that the withdrawal of vehicles, as stipulated in Article 207, The two-month period is not more than two months, pointing out that the partial period of the withdrawal depends on the violator's file and if it was recorded irregularities before, and will be listening to the circumstances surrounding the violation, and in respect of these considerations will determine the period of withdrawal, noting that the generalization of these conditions and the withdrawal period N authorized the Director General of Traffic, managers and department heads.

Major General Al-Shawi said at the press conference that any violator who claims to have been subjected to any abuse or any other means may resort to the investigation of violations or general inspection and will give him full details about the conversation between the traffic man and the violator.

He pointed out that the surveillance cameras installed on the signals, which were increased by about 100 cameras and besides that it is conducting the movement, it is used to free traffic violations, and for indirect violations will be activated law against those who commit.

He denied that Al-Wasatah is the criterion by which the period of booking of vehicles will be determined, stressing that the determination of the withdrawal period not exceeding two months will be linked to the violations and if they are deliberate.

"The activation of Article 207 of the Traffic Law and the inclusion of a number of dangerous violations are contrary to what the legislator authorized the Minister of the Interior, noting that Article 48 of the Traffic Law indicates that the seizure of vehicles is a ministerial decision.

He added: We will not equal the sanctions between those who commit a violation of recklessness and mercy and between those who use the mobile phone.

He reiterated that the General Directorate of Traffic continues to implement the decision firmly, taking into account the humanitarian situations of women and the elderly and people with special needs and families and it is unreasonable to detain the car in such cases .. And traffic men put such cases in their eyes and have full appreciation and consideration, He pointed out that the humanitarian aspect has all the respect and has priority on the field side. He pointed out that there is no postponement or postponement of the implementation of the decision which allowed the vehicle to be held for a period not exceeding two months and a financial fine if the commander of the vehicle was caught using the mobile phone by hand while driving or not N for him or passengers in the front seats and not wearing a motorcycle helmet commander as well as the activation of Article 207 of the traffic law in the case of waiting for the vehicle in the designated pedestrian crossing places or on the sidewalks.

He pointed out that the decision from the first day to implement it, we found a commitment and effectiveness and reflected positively, as the accident rates decreased from 375 accidents on Tuesday, 14/11/2017 to 264 accidents on Wednesday 15/11. / 2017.

Traffic violations decreased from 4000 violations prohibited to stand or stand on the sidewalk to 150 violations a day after the activation of Article 207 of the Traffic Law.

He stressed that the period of detention is not two months in all cases, but a maximum of two months and extends from two to two months depending on the record of the violator and the extent of his commitment to traffic rules and ethics and take into account the circumstances of each violation separately.

Major General Al-Shua'ee pointed out that if the commander of a vehicle that is not the owner of the vehicle is arrested, the vehicle shall be withdrawn and the duration of the detention shall be taken into account in such cases on a case-by-case basis.

Al-Shawi pointed out that there is ongoing coordination and consultations between the Deputy Prime Minister and Interior Minister Sheikh Khalid Al-Jarrah and the members of the National Assembly through the legislative channels to work on tightening the penalties and fines of some serious violations, to protect our children and youth.
