Rosetta sends Philae robot to land on a comet Churyumov-Gerasimenko

    European space agency with its Rosetta probe is bound to make the history for the third time, after succeeding in its first rendezvous with the comet, and being in orbit around the comet, now Rosetta is sending Philae robot to land on this precious comet; it is the most important day for European scientists in their life ,they couldn’t help jumping for joy like boys .
    It was just a dream years ago, now this dream is coming through, Rosetta had travelled 6.5 billion km trek in the space, finishing its travel by making a robot land on the comet ,this European mission cost 1.4 billion Euros.
    Rosetta will send back data to the planet earth, especially to European space agency, Rosetta is supposed to work for about 5 months, scientists will learn, many things from Rosetta data.
    Why European space agency wanted to land on comet but not on asteroid ,the difference between asteroid and comet ,a comet is orbiting far from the sun as for the asteroid is orbiting near the sun ,this difference is pivotal for scientists ,because with comet you have ice ,and scientists think the comet is the first one which brought water to earth but also complex molecules ,leading by domino effect to life in our blue planet .


    Russia gets closer to china

    As the investments from west are shrinking due to economic crisis in west especially in Europe and Ukrainian crisis, which is bound to stay for long time ,if it will not get worse in the foreseeable future ;to get rid of shackles of western sanctions ,Russia recently signed a gas contract of $ 400 billion with china ,in their trading Russia and china will use their own national currencies as a promising direction for both countries ,in order to boost their mutual economy .
    China overtook Germany as the Russian largest trading partner in 2010, as for china the biggest trading partner is USA ;50% of economic growth of USA will come from Asia ,that makes this region a real opportunity for creating job ,and economic growth for USA .
    With the regard to Russian currency (Robel ) ,it is not in good shape ,it lost recently 30% compared to Dollar and 25% compared to Euro due to western sanctions and low oil price ;Russia central bank had decided to leave Russian currency float freely without any intervention ,as for the economic growth the central bank had downgraded the forecast for this year and 2015 .


    USA-China deal to save the planet!!!!!

    USA and China had reached an agreement on green house gas emission ,both supported a plan to cut their emission by 2030 ,this agreement was the fruit of discussion of more than a year between the two parties ,USA promises to reduce 25% of its green house gas emission by 2025 ,as for china it promises to reach 20% of green energy in its energy consumption by 2030 ;China says it will reach its peak of fossil energy by 2030 and promises not to go further; both countries are responsible for 40% of green house gas emission in this planet ,by the way the principal energy used in China is coal energy .
    As for Europe it promised to have 26% of green energy in European energy consumption by 2030 ,to reduce 40% of green house gas emission compared to the level emitted by Europe in 1990’s.
    This agreement between china and USA will encourage other countries to reduce green house gas emission and promote green energy.


    India joins USA Russia and Europe on Mars

    Despite economic crisis India had achieved a scientific feat by putting in orbit a satellite around Mars the red planet ,by the way India has become the first nation to send a satellite into orbit around Mars on its first attempt, it is the first Asian nation to do so .
    The satellite Mangalyaan had entered the orbit of the red planet but the message didn’t reach the planet earth instantaneously , because the message needed to traverse the 400m miles (650m km) to Earth ,that means message needed 12 minutes to cross 650 million km .
    Mangalyaan, which means “Mars craft” in Hindi, took off from the island of Shriharikota, the India’s eastern coast about 11 months ago; The (3,000lb) 1,350kg device first headed for an elliptical orbit around Earth before heading towards Mars.
    India now joins an elite club of nations who have successfully carried out interplanetary space missions, and has scored a significant point in its rivalry with China ,and very likely India will be joined by other countries like brazil Iran …..etc; this Success makes India the fourth space power after the US, Europe and Russia to orbit or land on the red planet. The cost of the Indian effort is a tenth of Mars Nasa mission .
    The United States had its first successful Mars mission in 1964 using the spacecraft Mariner 4, returning 21 images of the surface of the planet. The former Soviet Union reached the planet in 1971, and the European Space Agency in 2003.
    Tens of millions of people across the country followed the progress of the craft with their prayers and the prayers of temple priests ,the Scientists needed urgently such prayers as There was a significant chance of failure ,more than half of 51 previous attempts to reach Mars had failed in the past .
    Nasa’s (Maven) mission aims to help scientists understand what happened to the water on Mars and the carbon dioxide in its atmosphere several billion years ago. How Mars lost its atmosphere is one of science’s biggest mysteries.
    The Indian mission aims to study the surface and mineral composition of Mars, and scan its atmosphere for methane, a chemical strongly tied to life on Earth.
    Moneywise Some Indians have questioned the $70m (£43m) price tag for a country that is still dealing with widespread hunger and poverty. But India defended the Mars mission ,for India that will lead gradually to establish India as a bigger player in the £200bn space technology market, even as USA ,Europe ,Russia and China give stiff competition with their long experience and bigger launchers.


    Morocco buys weapons from France

    Morocco is the sixth buyer of weapons from France after India, Brazil UEA, and USA, but ahead of Great Britain ,Malaysia ,Singapore and Russia, Morocco is the third in the Arab world to buy weaponry from France (the first one is Saudi Arabia during last decade the amount of orders from France had reached about 10 billion dollars) and the first in Africa.
    Morocco placed an order with France to buy in 2013 1.8 billion Euros of weaponry ,ranging from light weapons ,high-tech gadgets ,heavy weapons ,chemical matters used to manufacture explosives …….etc ;morocco is ranked twelfth in the world and second in Africa when it comes to buying weaponry in the world market.


    Facial recognition in USA

    FBI and federal agencies are gathering millions of facial photos ,these photos will be inserted in nationwide facial recognition data base, thousands of research or more than that will be conducted about these photos in daily bases by FBI and federal agencies , this data base could have both facial photos of criminals and no criminals shared by many American security departments ;this could generate much outrage from public opinion ;this battle could reach the court because of public privacy .
    There are many problems brought up by the resolution of these facial photos which could lead to many mismatches ,errors and inaccuracies.
    The goal is to make this practice completely legal and acceptable decade from now, USA authorities had promised not to misuse this data base and tamper with it????.


    Russia retaliations

    Europe and USA had increased the level of sanctions on Russia due to Ukraine conflict and Russia meddling in its neighbor affairs ,this set of sanctions is meant for some Russian rich men , politicians and Russia economy .
    But Russia government had blasted such move from west ,warning about the return to cold war era ,in which sanctions had been imposed on USSR (union of soviet socialist republics) and its allies in Europe .
    Russia had also warned western democracies of stiff retaliations with regard to oil and gas price ,as for German chancellor Merkel ,she is no longer able to trust her friend Potin ,the honey moon between both is over for ever !!.


    The Bloody Middle East

    In Gaza, more than 70 Palestinians have been killed and many others injured in raids ,last night there were about 306 Israeli raids on the Gaza Strip, according to Palestinian emergency services. This is the worst attack since the Gaza operation "Pillar of Defense" conducted in 2012 in the Palestinian enclave.
    The Israeli army launched its air offensive against Gaza in the night of Monday to Tuesday called "protective Border" operation, in response to volleys of rockets. According to the Israeli army, more than 130 rockets were fired Tuesday on southern Israel - 23 were intercepted by the missile defense (iron dome) while aviation has targeted 150 sites in Gaza. The goal is to hit Hamas and reduce the number of rockets fired into Israel, but until now without success.
    Middle east is boiling after civil war in Syria and ISIS terrorist attacks in Iraq now we have Israeli aggression against Palestinian people with guilty silence of western democracies

    Moroccan women in bad shape

    After ten years of the enforcement of moudaouanat al ousra (late women status )Morocco had registered last year(2013) about 35000 marriage of minors especially in rural region( 12 % of all marriage ) ,compared to 18000 marriage of minors in 2004(7% of all marriage ) ,as for polygamy it did not go beyond 1% .
    Unfortunately most of these marriage are accepted by judiciary as legal marriage even when they involve minors especially minors girls (or minors boys sometimes ),67% of minors marriage concern 17 years old boys and girls ,about 30% of 14 years old teenagers .
    Many Moroccan women’s NGO had blamed Moroccan government for being complaisant, and not doing anything to stop these bad habits especially in rural regions and mountains.
