The year 2018 was one of the most critical for African refugees in Israel. Under threat of imminent deportation, the community and their local supporters took to the streets, pleading for their rights to be recognized.

The mass deportations did not materialize.

First, it became clear that African governments were unwilling Christian Louboutin Red Classic Colankle 120mm Leather Flamanco Ruffle Platform Sandals Heels Pumps Size EU 37 (Approx. US 7) Regular (M, B)Christian Louboutin Black Farfamesh 150mm Suede and Patent Booties Platforms Size US 7.5 Regular (M, B)to accept refugees who had been forced out of Israel. That prompted Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, to reach a deal with the United Nations aimed at resettling African refugees in the West.

Netanyahu scrapped that deal after being criticized Christian Louboutin Black Leather Platform 38it High Heel Lady Red Sole Alti Knee Pump Daf Ankle Boots/Booties Size US 8 Regular (M, B)by lawmakers in Israel’s ruling coalition who viewed the arrangement as insufficiently tough on refugees. The lawmakers Christian Louboutin Black New Armurabotta Leather 39.5 It Thigh High Knee Heel Lady Toe Red Boots/Booties Size US 9.5 Regular (M, B) to how the deal was contingent on allowing approximately half of African refugees to remain in Israel for five years.

Despite shelving his most merciless anti-refugee plans, Netanyahu continued attacking Africans living in Israel. He remains among Israel’s top 10 leaders in its war against African refugees.

In January 2018, Ayoob Kara, a government minister, suggestedChristian Louboutin Black Pigamule 100 Pigalle Backless Sandal Slide Stiletto Mule Heel Pumps Size EU 39 (Approx. US 9) Regular (M, B) that African refugees were a health hazard.

He used that eliminationist language during a conference of Likud – the party led by Netanyahu – in Eilat, a Red Sea resort. Kara was seeking credit for overseeing a policy – then as a minister for regional cooperation – to fire Africans from that city’s hotel industry.

The policy had been implemented after Africans across Israel went on strikeValentino Garnet Suede Rockstud Ankle Strap Pumps Size EU 38 (Approx. US 8) Regular (M, B) in early 2014. A week-long strike was called as part of Christian Louboutin Black Botalili Leather 100mm Boots/Booties Size EU 37.5 (Approx. US 7.5) Regular (M, B) against Israel’s jailing of refugees.

Under the plan, permits were issued so that hundreds of workers could Christian Louboutin Indian Rose Pigalle Follies 120 Pumps Size EU 42 (Approx. US 12) Regular (M, B) Israel from Jordan each day and then be bussed back to Jordan in the evening.

The Israeli government insisted that an African be fired each time a worker from Jordan was recruited.

According to Kara, the objective of the plan was to “save tourism in Eilat.” Its effect, he added during his 2018 speech, was that “we expelled the illegal [African] workers that burst in here and were a sanitary nuisance.”

Kara, a member of the Druze religious minority, is now Israel’s communications minister.

Automated robots now have the tools to grow imitation, simplified human organs out of stem cells. Thankfully, we weren’t transported to a sci-fi dystopia where the machines have risen up and started to farm humans, but rather a world where pharmaceutical and other biomedical research just became much easier and faster.

Give these robots some pluripotent stem cells (stem cells that can become any type of cell), and 21 days later they’ll have finished a complicated experiment testing out the effects of a drug or genetic manipulation on some human-like, lab-grown kidneys. According to research published yesterday, May 17, in Cell: Stem Cell,Oscar de la Renta Lynx Print with Crystals Heels Formal Shoes Size US 5 Regular (M, B)Christian Louboutin White Pink Green Purple Pigamule 120mm Water Snake Piori Floral Heels B091 Mules/Slides Size EU 40 (Approx. US 10) Regular (M, B) the process is much faster and more reliable than when humans grow the same mini-organs.

“Ordinarily, just setting up an experiment of this magnitude would take a researcher all day, while the robot can do it in 20 minutes,” said researcher Benjamin Freedman Prada Black New Leather Chelsea Boots/Booties Size US 7 Regular (M, B). He went on to describe how automating the more tedious parts of biomedical research in this way will prevent people from ruining an experiment with careless errors or accidents.

Thanks to the shortened experimentation times, scientists at the University of Washington School of Medicine Valentino Ivory Cream Leather Rockstud Studded Flat Gladiator T Strap 38.5 Sandals Size US 8.5 Regular (M, B)Christian Louboutin Black Estandono Patent Bow Boots/Booties Size US 10.5 Regular (M, B)have already started to use these robots for high-throughput screening – a type of experimentation that tests a large amount of samples all at once. Because they could test so many kidney organoids at the same time, researchers have already learned how different compounds affect polycystic kidney disease, a common condition with serious symptoms.

It’s too soon to say whether robotic automation will lead to better drugs becoming available sooner, but the results so far look pretty cool. The fact that scientists are already publishing surprising findings that they may have otherwise missed suggests we may start to see a lot more out of biomedical researchers.

Also, now that it’s easier to make human-like organoids, pharmaceutical experimentation will become more relevant to, you know, humanity. There are a lot of drugs and treatments that look phenomenal based on animal studies but don’t have the same effect on people. While these mass-produced organs aren’t as complex as the real thing, they’re a good step forward that may help us understand what’s really going on underneath our skin.

Robots Can Grow Humanoid Mini-Organs From Stem Cells Faster And Better Than People

LAGOS, Nigeria (AA): Nigerian Muslim women on Wednesday called for banning all discriminations against their religious head-covering (Hijab).

“Al-Mu’minaat (an organization of Muslim women in Nigeria) is seeking that legislations be made to specifically criminalize discrimination, harassment, molestation and persecution of Muslim girls and ladies in the religious gear, the Hijab,” Nimatullah Abdul Quadri, president of the group, told a news briefing in Lagos ahead of Feb. 1 commemoration of the annual World Hijab Day.

“Our 2018 theme is ‘My Hijab, My Right’. This theme seeks to remind the (Nigerian) government and our fellow citizens of our religious rights… Christian Louboutin Dafodille Platforms Size US 5.5 Regular (M, B)Valentino Multicolor B-drape Black Nude Leather Pvc Pointed Pumps Size EU 37.5 (Approx. US 7.5) Regular (M, B)especially at this time when the hijab is being assaulted and when modesty of covering up is being ridiculed or associated with oppression and backwardness,” she added.

The World Hijab Day, an annual event founded by social activist Nazma Khan in 2013, takes place on Feb. 1 each year in over 140 countries to draw attention to the challenges that the Muslim women face, such as discrimination and harassment,Christian Louboutin Black Decollete 868 Jazz Calf Pumps Size EU 38.5 (Approx. US 8.5) Regular (M, B)Christian Louboutin Red Pijonina Scalloped Suede Peep Open Toe 39.5 Pumps Size US 9.5 Regular (M, B) due to the observance of their faith.

Abdul Quadri said this year’s event comes amid rising discriminations against Nigerian Muslim women and girls wearing headscarves, citing recent controversies around the religious wear.

Last October, a Muslim female law graduate Firdaus Amasa was barred from the call to bar event in the capital city Abuja because she insisted on wearing her headscarf, triggering a fresh debate on the issue and prompting the parliament to schedule a public hearing on Feb. 6 to resolve the logjam.

In 2016, the Appeal Court held that wearing the headscarf is within the constitutional right of the Muslim woman or girl, outlawing a government circular which had restricted its use in public schools across Lagos state. The government has appealed the ruling at the Supreme Court.Jimmy Choo Beige Alanah Cork Wedges Size EU 39 (Approx.

“Fidaus Amasa’s case has actually made it abundantly clear that the Nigerian nation is not serious about the Girl-child education and giving equal opportunity to all citizens,” according to the women leader.

BUJUMBURA, Burundi (AA): A Burundian Muslim association has translated the Holy Quran into Kirundi, one of the two official languages of the East African country, a religious leader told Anadolu Agency on Tuesday.

Sheikh Sadiki Kajandi, the president and legal representative of the Islamic Community of Burundi (COMIBU), said, “This is a great event for us, because on Monday we received the first translation of the Quran in Kirundi. This is a first since the introduction of Islam to Burundi.”

The translation work was done by the Association for Mutual Aid and Solidarity (AMES), Christian Louboutin White Ivory Degraspike 70 Studded Spike Heel Pop Corn 38 Pumps Size US 8Manolo Blahnik Champagne Hangisi Pumps Size EU 37 (Approx. US 7) Regular (M, B)a local Muslim association.

AMES Chairperson Sheikh Abdi John Habonimana told Anadolu Agency that the translation had taken quite a long time — a total of eight years.

“We thank all Muslims and non-Muslims, including university professors, who contributed to the process of making the Quran accessible in Kirundi,” he said.

Kirundi is spoken across Burundi and also in parts of Tanzania, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Uganda.

The Islamic community accounts for 10 percent of Burundi’s total population of 11 million.Christian Louboutin Red Victorina Flame Suede Carmin Pumps Size EU 38.5 (Approx. US 8.5) Regular (M, B)Valentino Blush Leather Rockstud Rolling Flats Sandals Size EU 37.5 (Approx. US 7.5) Regular (M, B)

The Muslims are mainly located in such urban areas as Gitega and Rumonge as well as the capital Bujumbura.

Bujumbura is home to a strong Islamic community dominated by West African traders from Senegal, Niger, Guinea, and Mali. There is also an Arab community.

According to historians, Islam arrived in Burundi around the 19th century.
