With this technology it is possible to control the potential targets of arsonists from one operations room. The video localization with thermal imaging reaches a distance of 12-15 km while radar coverage reaches a maximum of 50 km. The station can also be centralized in a large operations room that is able to monitor many radar units. Subsequently, with the detection of triggers, it will be easier to identify arsonists who will still be in the area.

T he team behind Berber & Q and its Exmouth Market sister Shawarma bar say they are “coming of age” as they announce plans for a new London restaurant, set to open in early October. The Katz brothers, Josh and Paul, and Mattia Bianchi, will open Carmel on Lonsdale Road in Queen’s Park, promising an all-day menu and a 60-strong wine list. Similarly to Berber, the food will draw on influences from north Africa and the eastern Mediterranean, much of it cooked in a wood-fired oven. “I think people might think of this as a more grown-up version of what we’ve done to date, dare I say a coming of age.

While a North African country, Morocco and its people seem to feel more at home with the Arab states rather than the African continent as Zolati explains. Warned against travelling through conflict zones, the intrepid explorer makes his way from North Africa through West Africa across to East Africa, making South Africa his final destination. Having arrived in South Africa, Zolati connected with a number of SAFTA-winning film people including co-director Chris Green (Chasing the Sun) in order to make this 90 minute Africa & I documentary possible. Using on-the-ground coverage of destinations including Morocco, Senegal, Ivory Coast, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Namibia and South Africa it’s a beautiful and stirring mash up of people, cultures and places.

Taken by surprise by the new call for dialogue launched by King Mohammed VI, the greedy, feckless and oppressive Algerian rulers shied away and unleashed the state-controlled media against Morocco and its institutions. The daily cited in this regard the Pegasus spyware, the remarks of Morocco’s permanent representative to the UN Omar Hilale on Kabylie, ignoring the King’s commitments to the Algerian people that Morocco will never cause them any evil or problems. “Nor will my country put you in peril or under threat. That is because what affects you affects us, and what befalls you harms us”, said the Monarch in his Throne Day speech, underlining the benefits and positive impacts of the opening of borders on both countries. Chief of the Polisario armed militia was also transferred by Algerian military rulers to Spain to receive treatment against coronavirus.

In addition, the figure does not include the 10,000 or so who entered the north African enclave of Ceuta in May after bypassing the border fences via the beach and the sea. For this reason, the government reports that 93 per cent of all known arrivals were by sea, with over half of them (7,623) arriving in the Canary Islands after Atlantic crossings from north-west Africa. In relation to the Mediterranean route, heading for the Spanish mainland and the Balearics, the increase has been less spectacular but the total is still 26.4 per cent higher than at this point last year, having reached 6,115. At the same time, those arriving by sea in Ceuta number 346 as opposed to the 66 reported in the first half of 2020, while in Melilla successful sea crossings have so far not been reported this year.

According to mysterious sources said to be “familiar with the plan”, Kushner is preparing to launch a Miami-based investment firm called Affinity Partners. While he might have the charisma of a soggy tissue, Mr Ivanka Trump seems to have a knack for failing upwards. Funnily enough, the Qatar Investment Authority was a major investor in Brookfield and, at the time, Kushner was backing a blockade on the Gulf kingdom. This was all a complete coincidence, and there was no intention of persuading Kushner to reverse his support for the blockade, Qatar has stressed. Still, if Kushner keeps running into coincidences like that one imagines his investment firm will do very well indeed.
