Rabat – In a competition organized on Monday by the French weekly news and political magazine Le Point, Salah Ghamizi, a Moroccan student engineer at the “Ecole des Mines de Nancy” in France, won the “les Défricheurs” award for his start-up “Waza Education.”The Moroccan student was able to convince the jury – composed of experts and journalists of Le Point – of the innovative nature of his start-up that aims to improve and create a bridge between businesses and universities.During the five minutes allotted to him to explain his start-up, the Moroccan engineer student quickly managed to sway the jury and the public of his innovative business plan. In an interview with Le Point, Salah Ghamizi, said, “My father is a researcher teacher in Morocco.”“At the end of his career, he has conducted a lot of paperwork instead of looking for funding and partners. And when I arrived in France for my engineering studies, I found that the problem was not just in Moroccan, but a problem with all universities,” he added.Given these facts, the Moroccan student said that he found himself obliged to find a way to link research and enterprises.Ghamizi had already made his name in inventions and creativity.In 2014, he invented the “HandSpeaker,” a translation device for sign language, which is composed of a pair of gloves and a mobile application that translates the sign language into speech. Using sensors positioned on the digital glove, HandSpeaker translates the signals into spoken words by sending signals to the smartphone, which analyzes the motion of the glove, and transcribes them into words and phrases by a voice box.The 23 year-old student previously won the National Award of “entrepreneurial,” “Startem” price and the Bank of France contest “Créactiv’Est,” before taking his project “Hand-speaker” to the “World Cup,” organized by Enactus, organized in 2014 in Beijing, with participants from 38 countries.Asked by Le Point if Steve Jobs is a model to follow, the Moroccan inventor responded negatively, stressing that Salman Khan the better example to follow. The educator Salman Khan is the founder of Khan Academy, which is a non-profit educational organization created in 2006 with the aim of providing a “free, world-class education for anyone, anywhere.”
UN Secretary-General, Ban Ki-moon delivered a message of “hope and urgency,” calling for increased momentum in global efforts. While Governments were responding in unprecedented ways and businesses and communities worldwide were also stepping up, he warned that “collective action does not match our common responsibilities.”The Conference, which opened on 1 December and wraps up this Friday, brings together the 196 Parties to the UNFCCC – the parent treaty of the landmark 1997 Kyoto Protocol – in an attempt to hammer out the new universal treaty, which would enter force by 2020. Mr. Ban said he had five requests of all parties.“First, we must deliver here in Lima a balanced, well-structured, and coherent draft text for the 2015 agreement that provides a clear and solid foundation for negotiations next year in Paris,” he said, stressing the importance of a common understanding on the scope and status of Intended Nationally Determined Contributions (INDCs) and calling particularly on major economies and developed countries, to submit their INDCs by the first quarter of 2015.He continued, calling for tangible progress in solidifying the climate finance regime, including capitalization of the Green Climate Fund (GCF) and leveraging of private finance, and stressed also the need to prioritize provision of adaptation support and resilience building, particularly for the most vulnerable.“The GCF must deliver on its promise to balance support for adaptation and mitigation. Work on loss and damage must be accelerated and we must bring the National Adaptation Plans of developing countries to life by agreeing how they should be funded and implemented.”He also stressed the importance of partnerships, urging Governments to take the lead on building frameworks and to cooperate with a broad range of actors, and he underlined the importance of ratification of the Doha Amendment to the Kyoto Protocol.“This is not a time for tinkering – it is a time for transformation,” he urged, drawing attention to the link between addressing manmade climate change and building more resilient, prosperous, and healthier societies, which was highlighted in his synthesis report on the post-2015 development agenda.“Investments in addressing climate change will propel gains in broader development goals. Conversely, investments made in development must be aligned with our climate aims,” he said.President of the UN General Assembly, Sam Kutesa, echoed the Secretary-General’s words, warning that the world was moving towards a “tipping point.”“Without immediate and concerted efforts, it will be impossible for the present and succeeding generations to achieve sustainable development,” he said.Stressing the importance of mitigation measures to “step back from the precipice of catastrophic climate change consequences,” he underlined the need for collective, international political will to transform the current economic and social models into low carbon and ultimately climate neutral economies.Expectations are high and time pressure demand those expectations be fulfilled, so he had scheduled a High Level Event on Climate Change for 29 June next year in New York. Taking place mid-way between COP 20 in Lima and COP 21 in Paris, the event sought to maintain momentum and complement UNFCCC negotiations.Also pointing to high expectations, Christina Figueres, Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC, said the time had come to leave “incremental change” behind and steer the world toward a “profound and fundamental” transformation.“Never before have we had such an opportunity, never before have we had such an urgency for transformation,” she said. “Ambitious decisions, leading to ambitious actions on climate change, will transform growth-opening opportunities instead of propagating poverty; safeguarding resources instead of depleting them; and valuing long-term stability over short-term volatility.”She looked to the gathered ministers to guide negotiators towards a draft agreement that could be taken from Lima to Paris and to assume their “undeniable role as leaders of the urgent present and stewards of our shared future.”It is not just about reductions in greenhouse gas emissions but also protecting the most vulnerable, alleviating poverty and creating a future with prosperity for all.“Here in Lima, we must plant the seeds of a new, global construct of high quality growth, based on unparalleled collaboration bridging all previous divides,” she said.
Castle Silver Resources has changed its name to Canada Cobalt Works Inc because it is more a cobalt company than a silver company and changing the name will put the company more on the radar of battery tech investors. As Frank Basa, CSR President and CEO, stated: “With Cobalt prices at 10-year highs, and the northern Ontario Cobalt Camp drawing increased attention, we’re entering exciting times for shareholders as we embark on various initiatives to build the ‘Canada Cobalt’ brand.”Anchored by its past producing Castle mine and related infrastructure, plus its proprietary Re-2OX process for cobalt recovery, Canada Cobalt will be a vertically integrated operation designed to serve the broader northern Ontario Cobalt Camp and a rapidly growing battery sector searching for ethically sourced cobalt.The Castle, Beaver and Violet mines are among the most advanced properties in the northern Ontario Cobalt Camp. While they comprise only 2,840 ha they are sources of high-grade cobalt that can quickly be developed into a shovel-ready state. The company also has the Re-2OX process which has been pilot-plant-tested to separate the various metals that comprise the mineralization in the Cobalt Camp vein systems. The company has been to Japan and China to meet with buyers of cobalt-based salts that are used in the lithium battery market. Studies are underway to develop a milling processing facility and leach plant on one of the Castle Silver Resources’ properties.
