دبي، الإمارات العربية المتحدة، 19 من فبراير 2019/PRNewswire/ —

شركة محاصة جديدة تهدف إلى التعجيل بتطبيق تقنية سجل المعاملات العمومي، بلوكتشين، في دولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة ومنطقة الشرق الأوسط وشمال أفريقيا.

شركة Kinetic للخدمات الاستشارية هي الشركة الرائدة في تقديم خدمات استشارية شاملة ومتنوعة لمساعدة المؤسسات على تحسين أدائها في خضم الثورة الصناعية الرابعة . وقد أعلنت الشركة اليوم عن تعاونها مع مختبرات RedFOX Labs القائمة بمنطقة هو تشي مينه في فيتنام، وهي الشركة المؤسسة لأعمال وتقنية سجل المعاملات العمومي المعروفة بمسمى “بلوكتشين”، وذلك بغرض إدخال حلول متكاملة لأعمال بلوكتشين إلى دولة الإمارات العربية المتحدة ومنطقة الشرق الأوسط وشمال أفريقيا.

جدير بالذكر أن RedFOX Labs هي شركة تقنية تعتمد في نشاطها على تقنية بلوكتشين إذ تقوم بتحديد وبناء نماذج عمل مبرهن على نجاحها  للعمل في الأسواق الناشئة القائمة في منطقة جنوب شرق آسيا فضلاً عن منطقة الشرق الأوسط وشمال أفريقيا في الوقت الحالي. تقوم الشركة بإنشاء حلول مبتكرة  وقابلة للقياس وذلك لإطلاق العنان لإمكانات السوق عن طريق منصة Komodo، إذ تهدف إلى إنشاء شركات تتصدر السوق في مجالات التجارة الإلكترونية والإعلام الإلكتروني وتقديم خدمات السفريات والنقل عبر الإنترنت إضافة إلى الخدمات اللوجستية.

وقد صرح جو توفيق، مؤسس Kinetic للخدمات الاستشارية ورئيسها التنفيذي، قائلاً: “تمثل تقنية بلوكتشين أحد الموضوعات الساخنة على ساحة النشاط التجاري في إقليم الشرق الأوسط وشمال أفريقيا.  وقد شعرنا، بوصفنا الشريك الاستراتيجي لبوابة حكومية تم طرحها مؤخرًا، أنه قد حان الوقت لدعم الطلب المتزايد الذي شهدناه على خدمات بلوكتشين. وتواصل حكومة الإمارات العربية المتحدة دعم المشروعات الناشئة التي تقدم حلولاً من شأنها تعزيز سعادة المواطن والعميل. ونحن على دراية بأن العديد من تلك الشركات الناشئة تستخدم تقنية بلوكتشين لتقديم حلول جديدة مضيفة للقيمة. وسوف نتمكن، عن طريق التعاون مع مختبرات RedFOX، من استخدام تقنية مبهرة فضلاً عن اغتنام الفرصة لتقديم حلول تميل بشكل أكثر إلى تقديم المشورة بغرض تطبيق تقنية بلوكتشين والحلول المرتبطة بها. ويشعر كلا الشريكين بالحماس ويؤكدان على التزامهما بالتعجيل بتطبيق تقنية بلوكتشين في منطقة الشرق الأوسط وشمال أفريقيا إذ تتيح لنا شركة المحاصة الحالية تحقيق هدفنا المنشود.”

JA Solar Supplies All Modules for the First PERC Solar Power Plant in Vietnam

BEIJING, Feb. 22, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — JA Solar Co., Ltd., a world-leading manufacturer of high-performance photovoltaic products, announced that it supplied all 48.3MW PERC modules for BP Solar 1 PV Power Plant in Vietnam. This represents the country’s first project that uses PERC modules. Additionally, it is an important step in driving the application of high-efficiency solar modules in the markets of Vietnam and other Southeast Asia areas, and is of great importance for the development of renewable energy in the region.

Located in Ninh Thuan Province, the solar plant is developed and constructed by Bac Phuong Joint Stock Company (EPC Contractor), a well-known renewable energy company in Vietnam. With an installed capacity of 48.3MW, the plant is expected to generate 80 million kWh of electricity and reduce carbon dioxide emissions by 79,760 tons per year. JA Solar cooperated with Bac Phuong Joint Stock Company closely and completed the supply of modules and construction of the project well ahead of schedule. On January 20, 2019, the plant was successfully connected to the national grid of Vietnam and put into operation.

The project is located in a tropical low-latitude coastal area. The harsh environment in the region (including damp heat, saline and alkali conditions and high wind) set stringent requirements for solar module quality. JA Solar’s solar modules have passed rigorous long-term reliability and environmental adaptability tests, and have excellent resistance to PID attenuation, salt corrosion and wind pressure, offering a strong guarantee for ensuring the stability of the power plant system and optimizing the power generation.

Mr. Jin Baofang, Chairman and CEO of JA Solar, said, “JA Solar will continue to focus on technological innovation and product quality improvement to meet the diverse needs of our global customers and promote the development of renewable energy around the globe.”

Israeli forces attack rally commemorating Hebron Mosque massacre

HEBRON, Israeli occupation forces on Friday attacked a nonviolent rally in the heart of Hebron which commemorated the 25th anniversary of the Ibrahimi Mosque Massacre, injuring at least one child by rubber-coated bullets and causing others to suffocate from teargas inhalation.

The rally also called on Israeli occupation authorities to reopen the Shuhada Street in heart of the city’s Old City quarter and for a complete withdrawal of Israeli forces ans settlers from the city.

The protesters waved the flags of Palestine and chanted slogans that condemned Israel’s forcible expulsion of the Temporary International Presence in Hebron team.

On February 25, 1994, an Israeli settler opened fire at Muslims observing the dawn prayers inside the Ibrahimi Mosque in Hebron on a Ramadan morning killing 29 worshippers and injuring 150 others before he was caught and killed by the crowds.

The settler, an American-Israeli physician identified as Barouch Goldstein who resided in the ultra-fanatic Kiryat Arba settlement in Hebron, walked into the mosque as a large number of Muslim Ramadan worshippers, mainly elderly, were praying and opened fire at random from his Israeli army-issued machine gun leading to the large number of deaths and injuries.

To make matter even worse, Israeli soldiers, who were in the vicinity of the mosque, closed the doors to the mosque and prevented the worshippers from running for their lives. They also prevented people from outside to enter it to help in evacuating the dead and wounded.

Israeli police detain over 40 Palestinians from Jerusalem

JERUSALEM, Israeli military police Friday overnight detained over 40 Palestinians during large-scale raids across East Jerusalem, said the Palestine Prisoner’s Society (PPS) in a press release.

Israeli military police conducted multiple extensive raids across East Jerusalem, detaining over 40 Palestinians, mostly identified as members of Fatah movement, and summoning seven others.

PPS confirmed that the raids, carried out in the East Jerusalem neighborhoods of Silwan, Wadi al-Joz, al-Eissawiya, al-Tur and Jerusalem’s Old City, raised the number of Palestinians detained from the city over the last three days to over 60.

PPS elaborated that 13 detainees will be brought before Israeli courts today, while nine others would be released after 5:00 PM on bail on the condition of being banned entry to the holy site until next Sunday.

The move came amidst escalating tensions inside Jerusalem’s flashpoint Al-Aqsa Mosque compound over the closure of the metal gate leading to Bab al-Rahmeh, on the eastern wall of Jerusalem’s Old City.

Bab al-Rahmeh has been shuttered by Israeli since 2003. At the time, the closure was justified on the grounds of alleged political activities, but the building has remained closed ever since.

The closure of the metal gate with chains and locks was perceived by Palestinian Muslims as a harbinger to the division of the mosque compound and allocation of the eastern section for Israeli Jewish settlers.

Euro-Med calls on UN, EU to press Israel to stop violations in J’lem

The Euro-Mediterranean Human Rights Monitor has called on UN organizations and relevant EU institutions to take urgent and immediate action to pressure the Israeli occupation authority (IOA) to stop its escalating violations against the Palestinians in Jerusalem.

In a recent press release, the Euro-Med said it had documented the storming of the Aqsa Mosque Compound by the Israeli police last Tuesday morning as they used excessive violence against worshipers in the area of Bab al-Rahma, injuring 20 of them and arresting about 15 others.

Enez Zayed, Euro-Med’s chairwoman, stressed that Israel’s practices against worshipers at the Aqsa Mosque and preventing Muslim worshipers from performing their religious activities are a clear violation of international human rights law, particularly the right to freedom of religion and belief.

Zayed called on all human rights organizations across the globe to work in their respective countries on urging their leaders to pressure Israel to respect its international obligations, including the protection of religious places, sites, shrines and symbols in Jerusalem.

Euro-Med Monitor calls on the IOA to immediately release all prisoners detained without legal or judicial warrants and to stop the policy of arbitrary detention and banishment from religious places, which the IOA systematically exercises against the Palestinians in Jerusalem.
