MBC Group Will No Longer Broadcast Turkish Series

Rabat – To the surprise of many Moroccan and Arab viewers, MBC Group has suspended broadcasting of Turkish TV series, reports Al Jazeera today, Wednesday, March 8.The chairman of the Dubai-based group i, Waleed Al Ibrahim, announced the decision following his release tied to a mass arrest that swept the Gulf countries a few months ago.According to Allied Media Corp., Moroccan viewers of MBC are the largest audience the group receives. The household watching MBC  were estimated at 2,344,500, while the potential audience in Morocco reaches sweeping 9,378,000. While Al Ibrahim did not justify his decision, MBC spokesman Mazen Hayek told The Associated Press on Monday that “There is a decision to remove all Turkish drama off several TV outlets in the region,” adding that he cannot confirm who took the final decision.For him, “This may be an incentive for Arab producers to create high-level Arabic drama that can be a good alternative to those taken off the air,” according to Asharq Al-Awsat news outlet.He explained one episode of an Arabic series costs between USD 40,000 and USD 100,000. Meanwhile, producing an episode of Turkish soap opera costs a minimum of USD 250,000.Al Jazeera reports that MBC’s decision is fueled by underlying politics, as relations between Saudi Arabia and Turkey “are at a low,” in light of Turkey’s support of Qatar as Saudi Arabia imposes a blockade on its neighboring gulf county.The Turkish Minister of Culture responded saying  that “it is not a couple of politicians who are supposed to decide who will watch which movies or shows from their desks.” read more

Wife of millionaire farmer may have to live next door to him

first_img“If a party is willing to go to the Court of Appeal to fight for a divorce, spending significant sums on the way, there is clearly no future for the marriage. Tini Owens Hugh Owens Mrs Owens, who has been married for 39 years, this week asked the Court of Appeal to overturn the “extraordinarily unusual” ruling, claiming that it constituted an “unreasonable and disproportionate restriction” of her human rights.Three appeal judges – led by Sir James Munby, the most senior family court judge in England and Wales – analysed the case at a hearing in London on Tuesday.They are expected to publish a ruling soon.Specialist divorce lawyer Ayesha Vardag says judges should not compel people to stay married.”This case highlights the absurdity of fault-based divorce,” she said. A woman whose attempts to divorce her multi-millionaire mushroom farmer husband were blocked by a judge has been left with a £100,000 legal bill.Tini Owens, 66, who is living in a farmhouse only yards from her estranged husband’s Cotswold home, must wait another three years before she is able to divorce Hugh Owens, 78, after a judge turned down her petition to end their “intensely unhappy” marriage last year.It is understood that she was told to pay £20,000 towards her husband’s costs, and faced legal fees of her own of around £80,000. “It is beyond archaic that she should have to prove it to a judge.”There is no good reason for a court to compel someone to stay married when they clearly do not want to be.”We must push forward with no-fault divorce and end ridiculous charades like this.”Philippa Dolan, who also specialises in divorce and family litigation and is based at law firm Collyer Bristow, said: “The case quite clearly reinforces the need for a change to the law.”Whilst the decision in this case is unusual, too often those petitioning for divorce are forced to rely on demonstrating ‘unreasonable behaviour’.”This works against the solicitor’s role of minimising division and seeking an amicable and fair outcome for the whole family.”She added: “Put simply, we need a family law system which reflects the way relationships and marriage work in 2017.”We need a move towards ‘no-fault’ divorces, where there is no requirement for one spouse to prove the other did something wrong.”Mrs Owens says her husband behaved unreasonably and says their marriage has irretrievably broken down.She says Mr Owens is “insensitive” in his “manner and tone”. She said she felt “constantly mistrusted” and unloved.Mr Owens, a retired businessman, disagrees and denies allegations made against him.center_img Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

The painting took two canfuls, so I thought, what do I do with the rest? I’m not going to put it in the sink, that’s rather nasty,” she said.“So I just poured it into the doorwell. There was so much it just sloshed over the top and went down to the road. It was so harmless. It was just funny, excruciatingly funny.” There was £15,000 worth of damage, according to Lord Prior.”He would have got the wall repainted and nobody would have ever known but it went fabulously my way. Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think it would go so well,” Purbrick said. “It was ten past ten on a Monday morning, and they were hard at it. They leapt out of bed and David said, ‘Let’s go and have a cup of coffee.’ We sat like some English comedy, all sitting around the smart table making polite conversation, then I got up and left,” she said.  Lizzie Purbrick, who used pig’s blood to daub lewd messages inside a Tory peer’s house after discovering that he had cheated on her, has said that the escapade was “excruciatingly funny”.The former Olympic showjumper told how she was unphased by the £170 fine and a community service order imposed on her by the courts for criminal damage, quipping: “I love community service, I run charities in Africa.”Purbrick, 63,  admitted last week to using a key to enter the south London home of Conservative peer David Prior as a “cathartic” response to seeing her partner of several years “in the arms of another woman”.She told The Times:  “I’m quite imaginative and as a woman scorned goes, I know how to scorn. I thought it was so dull to go and cut up the ties.”She said that she accepted that the relationship was over after discovering hundreds of “very naughty” emails and text messages between Lord Prior and his new lover.But it was after she went to collect her belongings from Lord Prior, and accidentally walked in on the peer “at it” with his new lover, that she decided to exact her revenge. Purbrick used a garden sprayer and several litres of pig's blood to cover the walls with phrases such as "whore, lady slut" and "big d*** lord". Last week, Camberwell Magistrates’ Court heard Purbrick used a garden sprayer and several litres of pig’s blood to cover the walls with phrases such as “whore, lady slut” and “big d*** lord” on May 9. Purbrick used a garden sprayer and several litres of pig’s blood to cover the walls with phrases such as “whore, lady slut” and “big d*** lord”. In what was described by the defence as “something lifted straight out of the pages of a Jilly Cooper novel”, she also drew a penis and left a cheque for £1,000 before pouring the remainder of the blood on the floor and leaving.  Lord Prior of Brampton Credit: Andrew Antonio  Lord Prior of Brampton  Elizabeth Purbrick with her Mount Frederick The Great in 1983 Purbrick went to see her local butcher a told him she was playing Lady Macbeth in a play so needed plenty of blood, originally intending to daub a few words in pig’s blood on Lord Prior’s walls.   read more

The Jatrapala was organised at the house of one Manoranjan Das on the occasion of Manasa Puja. To make the performance more lively, a local exorcist handed over a poisonous snake to the woman. Without assuming the implication of the incident, she also agreed to enact the epic with the snake. According to locals, the victim thought that the snake might have been entirely devoid of venom.

The groups asked CMS to open a national coverage determination for this American Cancer Society-recommended screening exam. Studies in the United States and abroad show that virtual colonoscopy increases screening rates, which can save lives, and lowers costs.Recent United States Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) colorectal cancer (CRC) screening recommendations assigned its highest rating, an “A” grade, to colorectal cancer screening, including virtual colonoscopy and other tests. Under the Affordable Care Act, this “A” rating would require insurers that take part in insurance exchanges to cover virtual colonoscopy without patient cost sharing. Medicare should cover seniors for these exams as well, emphasize the groups’ representatives.“The best colorectal cancer screening exam is the one that a person chooses to use. Too many Americans are dying from a largely preventable disease that can almost always be treated if found early. Medicare coverage of virtual colonoscopy would ensure access to a proven screening method for those who cannot, or will not, have an optical colonoscopy. This will save lives,” said Eric Hargis, public policy adviser for the Colon Cancer Alliance.Virtual colonoscopy has been proven comparably accurate to optical colonoscopy in most people of screening age — including those ages 65 and older. Less invasive than optical colonoscopy, virtual colonoscopy does not require sedation. After the exam, patients can return to daily activities.“To increase screening rates among seniors, Medicare must cover innovative, lifesaving virtual colonoscopy. Seniors need more fully covered screening options that they are likely to use. Medicare coverage for virtual colonoscopy would be a major step forward in the battle against colorectal cancer,” said Anne Carlson, executive director of the Colon Cancer Coalition.Colorectal cancer (CRC) screening rates are lower and CRC incidence and death rates higher among African-Americans. Only half of Latinos in the United States ages 50 and older get screened. In fact, U.S Latinos are more likely to die from colorectal cancer than those in many Central and South American countries. More screening options can reverse these trends.“Colorectal cancer is one of the few cancers we can largely prevent if those who need to be screened choose to get tested. But to attract more people to get screened, we need more fully covered tests. Medicare coverage for virtual colonoscopy would jumpstart screening and reduce colorectal cancer deaths,” said Carolyn Aldigé, president and founder of the Prevent Cancer Foundation.CIGNA, UnitedHealthcare, Anthem Blue Cross Blue Shield and other insurers already cover these exams. More than 20 states require insurers to cover virtual colonoscopy. A major study shows that screening Medicare patients with virtual colonoscopy would reduce CRC screening costs by 29 percent and save Medicare up to $1.7 billion per screening cycle. President Obama chose a virtual colonoscopy in his first checkup in office.”Medicare coverage of CT colonography would remove a financial barrier to this screening option that can overcome cultural stigmas and attract more people to be screened. This would prevent many cancers, find more cancers before they progress and save thousands of lives each year from this terrible, but often preventable, disease,” said Judy Yee, M.D., chair of the American College of Radiology Colon Cancer Committee.Colorectal cancer is the second leading cause of cancer death among men and women. According to the American Cancer Society, more than 134,000 people will develop colorectal cancer in 2016. More than 49,000 will die of the disease.For more information: www.acr.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Colonoscopy Systems | August 17, 2016 Patient and Physician Groups Call on Medicare to Cover Virtual Colonoscopy Call for national coverage determination argues that CT colonography increases screening rates and lowers costs Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.
