Education for Iraqi children key to their countrys future UN official says

20 July 2007A senior United Nations official traveling in Damascus has called for Iraqi refugee parents to send their children to public schools in Syria, pointing out that these young people hold the key to Iraq’s future. A senior United Nations official traveling in Damascus has called for Iraqi refugee parents to send their children to public schools in Syria, pointing out that these young people hold the key to Iraq’s future.Deputy High Commissioner for Refugees L. Craig Johnstone made his comments on Thursday as he continued his first visit to the Middle East for UNHCR.“The Syrian government allows your children to register in public schools. Make the most of this opportunity; send your children to school,” Mr. Johnstone told a gathering of more than 400 Iraqi refugees at the UNHCR Registration Centre in Damascus.”The education of your children will secure the future of Iraq and the future of your families. Spread the word – we want all Iraqi families in Syria to know that they have the right to send their children to school,” added Mr. Johnstone, who arrived from Jordan on the second leg of his first visit to the region since joining UNHCR in June.His visit to main host countries Syria and Jordan coincides with the launch of a joint campaign by the UN refugee agency and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to increase the number of Iraqi children in schools in Syria from the current 33,000 to 100,000 by the end of the 2007-08 school year.An appeal last week for extra funds for UNHCR’s Iraq-linked programmes noted that most Iraqi children were not attending school. Outside Iraq, the agency plans to focus on education, health, food, social and legal counseling and shelter for the refugees. A recent survey in Damascus indicated that a significant number of children were not yet enrolled in school.Mr. Johnstone voiced UNHCR’s gratitude to the Damascus Government for offering refuge to the estimated 1.4 million Iraqi refugees living in Syria. The UN refugee agency has been appealing for increased international support for the Governments of both Syria and Jordan as they struggle to cope with the influx of refugees. In last week’s appeal, UNHCR issued a revised budget of $123 million for its programmes, up from US$60 million in January.“UNHCR has already registered more than 150,000 Iraqis in the region and many of them have special needs, including help in getting their children in school and serious medical problems. The needs are enormous and these governments should not have to cope alone,” said Mr. Johnstone.Meanwhile, the displacement of Iraqis in the face of extreme violence continues unabated, with a significant impact on the surrounding region. To date, over 4 million Iraqis have been uprooted, according to UNHCR. The more than 2 million refugees in surrounding countries include some who fled their country during the pre-2003 regime of Saddam Hussein. The outflow has escalated in the past eighteen months.The displacement continues at a rate of about 100,000 a month, the UN estimates. read more

Dallas jury rules NFL breached 2011 Super Bowl tickets contract but no

Dallas jury rules NFL breached 2011 Super Bowl tickets contract, but no fraud against fans Dallas Cowboys owner Jerry Jones addresses the media outside the Earle Cabell Federal Building and Courthouse after testifying in the 2011 Super Bowl seating trial, Tuesday, March 10, 2015, in Dallas. (AP Photo/The Dallas Morning News, Smiley N. Pool) MANDATORY CREDIT; MAGS OUT; TV OUT; INTERNET USE BY AP MEMBERS ONLY; NO SALES DALLAS – A federal jury on Thursday ordered the NFL to pay nearly $76,000 to fans affected by the 2011 Super Bowl seating mess in Texas, wrapping up a trial that included testimony from Commissioner Roger Goodell and Cowboys owner Jerry Jones.The eight-member jury in Dallas concluded that the NFL breached its contracts with seven holders of tickets to the game at the Dallas Cowboys’ stadium in Arlington. However, the jury concluded the league did not defraud the fans.The NFL must pay the money to the seven fans. Five said they ended up with no seats and two said they had obstructed views at the $1.2 billion stadium for the game in which Green Bay won the championship over Pittsburgh. The jury ordered compensation ranging from $5,670 to $22,000.About 1,250 temporary seats were deemed unsafe hours before kickoff. That forced about 850 ticket holders to move to new seats and 400 others to standing-room areas. The NFL has said it fully compensated displaced fans.Plaintiffs’ attorney Michael Avenatti asked U.S. District Judge Barbara Lynn to withhold her final judgment until he can take a sworn statement from Scott Suprina, the contractor hired to install the 1,200 temporary seats. Lynn said she would alert Avenatti in advance of any judgment finalizing the jury verdict.Avenatti had filed an emergency motion on Wednesday, claiming the NFL had influenced Suprina’s testimony in its favour during a video deposition played for the jury. Suprina told The Dallas Morning News he testified truthfully and crafted his statements in the league’s favour only in public statements.Despite the split verdict, Avenatti hailed the jury’s decision.“One of the most powerful, wealthiest organizations in the world was found by a jury here in Dallas to have cheated its fans and to have not kept its end of the bargain,” he told reporters afterward.However, NFL defence attorney Thad Behrens said the jury verdict achieves what the league had been willing to do all along.“The NFL has always accepted responsibility for the problems that were experienced by some of its fans at Super Bowl XLV and has attempted from the beginning to compensate them for their genuinely received losses and inconvenience,” Behrens said. Reading from a prepared statement, Behrens told reporters that the league was gratified that jurors agreed that it had not defrauded those fans.In videotaped testimony, Goodell said the league was responsible for the problems.“I’m not blaming others. I’m blaming ourselves. I’m accepting responsibility,” Goodell said in the deposition, which was recorded in 2013. “It is our event. It is our responsibility to produce it in a positive way and make sure we deliver on our promise.”During his testimony, Jones denied suggestions the seating problems might have stemmed from his desire to set a Super Bowl attendance record.

Technoinfused opera about Steve Jobs gets new backers

Techno-infused opera about Steve Jobs gets new backers Construction workers put final touches on parking lot renovations at the Santa Fe Opera on Tuesday, May 9, 2017, in Santa Fe, N.M. The opera house is preparing for a July world premiere of “The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs” at its open-air summer stage in the foothills of New Mexico’s Sangre de Cristo Mountains. The techno-infused opera about the life of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has earned the financial backing of opera companies in San Francisco and Seattle. (AP Photo/Morgan Lee) by Morgan Lee, The Associated Press Posted May 9, 2017 11:10 am MDT Last Updated May 9, 2017 at 3:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email SANTA FE, N.M. – A techno-infused opera about the life of Apple co-founder Steve Jobs has earned the financial backing of opera companies in San Francisco and Seattle, ensuring the musical meditation on the iconic entrepreneur will travel to America’s high-tech enclave.The partnerships were announced Tuesday as the Santa Fe Opera prepared for its July world premiere of “The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs” at its open-air summer stage in the foothills of New Mexico’s Sangre de Cristo Mountains.The Seattle Opera and the San Francisco Opera are underwriting both the already completed artistic creation of the opera, led by composer and electronica DJ Mason Bates, and its physical stage production. As co-producers, the companies guarantee their right to performances beyond Santa Fe in California and Washington. The Jacobs School of Music at Indiana University also has signed on as a co-producer.Job’s life story, as the relentless technology pioneer who embraced Buddhism and simple vegetarian family dinners, has been the subject of documentaries, books, a feature film and a graphic novel since his death from cancer in 2011.Sponsors of the Jobs opera are counting on Bates and librettist Mark Campbell to deliver a “deeply layered, moving portrayal of a man grappling with the complex priorities of life, family and work,” in the words of San Francisco opera General Manager Matthew Shilvock.“He was also a real person and a member of our community,” Shilvock said of Jobs in a written announcement.Charles MacKay, general director of the Santa Fe Opera, said Jobs provides the “sort of heroic, tragic figure” that operas have explored for centuries — who also may lure new and younger audiences to metropolitan opera houses.“The proof is in the pudding and in how the audience responds,” MacKay told the Associated Press. “This is not an opera about technology, although it will be the highest technology production that we’ve ever done. It is an opera about relationships, and it is an opera about human frailties. … He could be a very difficult man.”Accompaniments include a live orchestra, guitar, natural sounds and expressive electronics — sounds tailored to the man who first won fame and fortune during the microcomputer revolution of the 1970s and 80s with partner Steve Wozniak as they introduced the pivotal Apple II and Macintosh computers.Fired by Apple in 1984, Jobs went into the visual effects industry at Pixar before his return to Apple as CEO to preside over the heyday of the early iPhone and related gadgets — also becoming a music and media mogul.MacKay cautioned that “The (R)evolution of Steve Jobs” could take a few years to reach the Bay Area and beyond — normal delays in the painstaking opera planning cycle.Investments as a co-producer can pay financial dividends if the opera sells tickets and eventually travels the country, or world. The Santa Fe Opera brokered a collaborative hit with other companies with the 2015 opera premiere of “Cold Mountain,” adapted from the 1997 novel and popular film.Seed money for the Jobs opera was provided by the National Endowment for the Arts.From Santa Fe, MacKay has been outspoken in pushing back against President Donald Trump’s proposed elimination of the endowment from the federal budget, with funding recently extended through the end of the current fiscal year in September. read more

Richard Hammonds car crash will affect The Grand Tour says Jeremy Clarkson

first_imgJeremy Clarkson has said that that new series of The Grand Tour will be affected by the injury on Saturday to fellow presenter Richard Hammond, who was seconds from death after the electric supercar he was driving crashed and burst into flames in Switzerland. Writing on DriveTribe, a digital platform for car enthusiasts, Clarkson, 57, said: “Many of you have been asking if Hammond’s broken knee will affect the filming for season two of the Grand Tour.”And the short answer is: yes.”As I write, James May is sitting in the hell hole that is Gatwick Airport waiting for a budget airline to take him to a shoot that Hammond should have been doing.”Meanwhile, I’ve been up since dawn, rewriting all of the scripts and ideas we had to accommodate the fact that Hammond can’t drive for the next few months.”Meanwhile, he is lying in a bed in the Swiss Alps, while pretty nurses attend to give his every need, and give him drugs.” It was the biggest crash I’ve ever seen and the most frightening but incredibly, and thankfully, Richard seems to be mostly OK.— Jeremy Clarkson (@JeremyClarkson) June 10, 2017 Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. He said Hammond was referred to as a “body” following the incident and that he did not want to see him, “not after a crash that big”. “I could see the screen. I could see the paramedics behind it. I couldn’t see Hammond. I didn’t want to see him. Not after a crash that big.”Clarkson said they were then told Hammond was fine by their security man, and that he is sure his co-host will share further details “when the lucky sod feels up to it”. Clarkson wrote on Drive Tribe: “I don’t know what went wrong. Hopefully, when he comes out of surgery and is feeling up to it, he will be able to tell us.”What I do know is that I genuinely thought he was dead.” The 47-year-old climbed out of the car before the fire and suffered no serious injury, although he will need surgery to fix a broken leg.Yesterday, Clarkson told of the “coldness” he felt when he realised the crash had happened to his co-host, adding that his knees turned to “jelly”. Clarkson said he had finished filming for the day and was waiting for Hammond and fellow presenter James May to complete a hill climb when he learned that a test driver had had an “off” in one of the cars. He mistakenly thought it was a Lamborghini Aventador that had crashed and not the Rimac Concept One that Hammond had been driving. the car which was involved in a crash where Richard Hammond escaped serious injury, in Switzerland Initially angered, Clarkson said it quickly became obvious that something serious had happened.He wrote: “And as I stood there, waiting for news, it dawned on me that the burning car was not yellow, as the Aventador was. It was white. Hammond’s Rimac had been white.”And I can feel it now; the coldness. My knees turning to jelly. It was Hammond who’d crashed.”I was joined at this point by James who’d arrived on the scene just before me in his Honda NSX. He was in a right old state, his arms waving frantically, his eyes wide. ‘Hammond’s in there,’ he was screaming.” Richard Hammond  Hammond has apologised to his wife and children and joked that he is “not dead” in a video filmed from his hospital bed.A spokesman for The Grand Tour thanked paramedics for their “swift response” after the accident, adding that the cause is being investigated.

That he’d got out before the fire started. And that ‘his body’ – that’s what they said – was behind a screen at the bottom of the hill.

Taxi industry heavyweights to launch booking app

first_imgThree Greek Australian taxi industry heavyweights have bought the rights to the Greek taxi booking app ‘Taxiplon’ and plan to launch it in the next month. Harry Katsiabanis of TaxiLink, John Vlassopoulos of Ambassador Taxis, and Chris Sikavitsas of Cabways, who own more than 500 taxi licences combined are hoping to use the new booking app to create another source of income without resorting to 13Cabs and Silver Top. “It just provides another opportunity for a driver to create some income,” Harry Katsiabanis told Neos Kosmos. The app will provide customers with a way to directly book a taxi and private cars, effectively linking them to the drivers and owners on a one-on-one basis. It doubles as a taxi fleet management system and books taxis linked to the system accessible from smart phones and tablets. The trio wants to trial it in Victoria first then launch it nationally, effectively bringing a new competitor to the big two. The Victorian Taxi Association has cautioned any new booking service must abide by the same security and customer service standards as 13Cabs and Silver Top. Mr Katsiabanis has assured drivers will be certified and trained by their depot and would be suspended from the system if anything went wrong. Expected release is in early July.

FIV une nouvelle méthode pour réduire les naissances multiples

first_imgFIV: une nouvelle méthode pour réduire les naissances multiplesLundi, lors du congrès de l’European Society of Human Reproduction (ESHRE), des médecins suédois ont présenté une nouvelle méthode susceptible de réduire le risque de naissances multiples lors d’une fécondation in vitro (FIV) et ce, tout en maintenant d’excellentes chances de procréer.C’est un pas en avant dans l’amélioration des techniques de fécondation in-vitro (FIV). Hier, des médecins suédois ont présenté au congrès de l’European Society of Human Reproduction (ESHRE) à Stockholm, une nouvelle méthode de FIV qui permettrait de réduire les risques qu’elle comporte, et en particulier celui de grossesse multiple.Aujourd’hui, la procréation assistée par FIV consiste à implanter plusieurs embryons dans l’utérus de la mère, dans le but qu’il y en ait au moins un de viable. Parfois, plusieurs embryons parviennent à s’accrocher à la paroi de l’utérus et conduisent à une grossesse multiple qui présente des risques à la fois pour la mère et pour les nouveaux-nés. Néanmoins, le docteur Jan Holte et son équipe de la clinique Carl Von Linne située à Uppsala en Suède, semble avoir trouvé une solution au problème. Moins de jumeaux Pour cela, ils ont mis au point une équation mathématique combinant les quatre critères suivants: âge de la mère, nombre d’ovules et stimulation ovarienne, tentatives passées de FIV et qualité des embryons. Grâce à cette méthode, les chercheurs ont alors réussi à diviser par 13 le nombre de naissances multiples. Sur 3.410 embryons, le taux de grossesse multiple est ainsi passé de 26% à seulement 1,9% entre 2004 et 2007. Cité par l’AFP, le docteur Jan Holte explique : “Quand le temps est venu de transférer les embryons, si nous voyons que le risque de jumeaux est trop élevé, nous ne transférons qu’un embryon et nous congelons les autres”.À lire aussiToxoplasmose : symptômes, traitement, grossesse, quels sont les risques ?Plus intéressant encore, cette nouvelle technique présente un taux de succès comparable à celui habituellement observé, passant seulement de 29,1% à 24,6%. De même, avec les embryons congelés, dont le taux baisse de 31,1% à 30,7%. Aujourd’hui, la méthode est d’ors et déjà utilisée par quatre cliniques en Suède et une autre en Italie.   Le 5 juillet 2011 à 18:53 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

ASAs WISHH Program and Partners to Assist USDAs Ag Reconstruction Work in

first_imgSoy to Improve Health and Help Restore Afghan ProductivityThe U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) announced today that the American Soybean Association’s (ASA) World Initiative for Soy in Human Health (WISHH) program and three partnering organizations will receive a cooperative agreement for work in Afghanistan. The USDA Food for Progress program brings the strengths of soy protein to fight some of the highest rates of malnutrition in the world, as well as help rebuild Afghanistan’s food industry. The estimated value of the project is $26 million.”We are excited to help Afghan farmers rebuild their infrastructure while we make healthy food available to their fellow citizens and to build a market for soy,” said WISHH Chairman and ASA Board member Scott Fritz, a soybean producer from Winamac, Ind. “Diets will improve and soy consumption will increase as Afghan agriculture and the local economy develops. When this happens, everybody wins.”The three-year project will allow WISHH to launch its first extended effort in Afghanistan. Joining WISHH on the project are: Shelter for Life International, which is headquartered in Minnesota; California-based Nutrition and Education International Inc. (NEI), and CBI Global located in Ohio. These organizations have seen the need and enormous potential for soy in their approximately 20 combined years of work in the war-torn country.USDA’s efforts to help redevelop Afghanistan’s agriculture sector is the top Obama Administration priority for reconstruction. The USDA cooperative agreement will provide 240 metric tons of defatted soy flour over the next three years to meet immediate nutritional needs of 5,000 women and their families. The agreement also includes 13,750 metric tons of soybean oil that will be monetized or sold into the local market in support of the project activities. The project will also bolster the processing end of the agricultural value chain, with the shipment of 6,000 metric tons of soybeans over three years. Afghan soybean processing facilities will use the soybeans to produce soy flour and soybean oil for the local market. Over the life of the program and all of its activities, this project will support more than 220,000 direct beneficiaries.Afghanistan has some of the worst health statistics in the world. According to UNICEF, more than half of all children under five suffer from moderate or severe stunting. Twenty five percent of children die before reaching their fifth birthday. The health of rural Afghan people, particularly women and children, is often the worst in the nation.NEI founder and nutrition scientist Dr. Steven Kwon survived the post-war devastation in Korea in the 1950s before moving to the United States. Those experiences prompted him to go to Afghanistan in 2003 to see if he could help. Dr. Kwon identified that soy could play an important role in meeting the dire need for protein.With the support of local Afghan leaders, NEI has distributed soy flour to pregnant and lactating women and conducted nutrition education and soy cooking seminars. NEI has also worked with small bakeries to encourage them to use 10 percent soy flour in the production of naan (a traditional flatbread) for elementary schools and refugee camps.Adding 10 percent soy flour increases the absorbable protein of the naan by 110 percent, says Dr. Kwon, who has witnessed the impact of soy in his 28 trips to Afghanistan. “After one month, the children’s faces go from looking sick to normal,” Kwon says “In three months, we see healthy and happy looking children—all because of soy.”Dr. Kwon is enthusiastic about the expansion of these results by working with WISHH under the new USDA Food for Progress cooperative agreement. “WISHH has the technical expertise to strengthen the (food) processing sector in the country…We can jumpstart this processing sector.”Increased agricultural productivity will require rehabilitation of watersheds and improvements to irrigation infrastructure. Road repairs and small loan programs for farmers are key to the sustainability of the project. Shelter for Life has worked in these areas in Afghanistan since 1997. “The two decades of war crumbled the infrastructure,” says Director of International Programs Mustafa Omar. “We are looking at parts of the country that have a history in food production, but are currently unable to do so.”CBI Global based in Columbus, Ohio, acting as agent for The Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, will be monetization agent for the project. “Robert Clark at CBI was great throughout the entire proposal process and provided a lot of input,” Fritz said. “CBI’s monetization work is key to the entire effort.”The WISHH program is managed from ASA’s world headquarters in Saint Louis. Since U.S. soybean farmers founded WISHH in 2000, WISHH has worked in 23 countries to improve diets, as well as encourage growth of food industries. Please visit www.wishh.org.last_img read more

PlayStation Move Racing Wheel offers double the accuracy of a DualShock

first_imgFor anyone who takes their racing games seriously, whether it’s LittleBigPlanet Karting or Gran Turismo 5, Sony has created a new wireless wheel that is powered by PlayStation Move.Despite its strange shape, the peripheral is highly versatile and its creator, SCEA research and developer engineer Anton Mikhailov, says it’s twice as accurate as a DualShock controller, meaning you should be able to shave some time off your laps.Like the DualShock, it has rumble feedback, too. In fact, it has two rumble motors, one either side to balance out the feeling of the controller. A PS Move controller sits in the center of the device and powers the entire thing–no batteries required!Most conventional racing wheels currently available in the shops are designed to sit on a table or desk in front of you, meaning you don’t have to hold anything up in the air. But apparently this Move controller won’t be uncomfortable to hold for long periods of time. Mikhailov said he play tested the controller for four hours without getting tired, so it must be quite light. That may act as a negative though, and I hope the rumble motors add just enough weight and feedback to add something to the driving experience.If you’re not a fan of racing cars and prefer bikes instead, this controller is just as good for you. The grips fold out into a handlebar shape. It even has a twist throttle on the right grip which is connected to the rumble so it feels more like a real motorbike input. It’s also designed to be suitable for flight simulators, so wannabe pilots watch this space.The controller will support a variety of PlayStation games, but the ones confirmed as having support include: Gran Turismo 5, LittleBigPlanet Karting, Motorstorm Apocalypse, Need for Speed: Hot Pursuit, and Burnout Paradise.The PlayStation Move Racing Wheel is coming to North America this autumn for $39.99 making it significantly cheaper than your typical racing wheel.via PlayStation Bloglast_img read more

I do have Messenger (but the upload contacts option is and always has been DESELECTED). https://t.co/hUKDG7pr7F— Natalie Schluter (@natschluter) March 25, 2018When probed last week by Ars Technica, a Facebook spokesperson explained that “it’s a widely used practice to begin [new social media accounts] by uploading your phone contacts.”The optional feature explicitly requests permission, the company said, and users can delete contact data from their profiles at any time.More distressingly, though, Facebook’s mobile Android apps have long been siphoning call and SMS logs—whether users give permission or not.As reported by Ars Tech, folks who installed the social network on an older operating system (specifically before Android 4.1 Jelly Bean) and granted permission to read contacts also unknowingly authorized access to call and message records.The permission structure was changed in version 16 of the Android API, the news site said, but Android apps—like Facebook—could bypass the update if they were written to earlier versions of the API.Breathe easy, iOS owners: Apple has never allowed silent access to call data.Facebook, meanwhile, denies reports that it has been logging data without permission.“While we receive certain permissions from Android, uploading this information has always been opt-in only,” the company wrote in a Sunday blog post.As anyone who’s ever logged into Messenger knows, the mobile app gives the option to continuously upload contacts, as well as call and text history: Tap “turn on” to immediately enable, or “learn more” then “not now.”The function is easy enough to turn off, blocking the site from collecting new information. But it remains unclear whether revoking access also purges previously saved metadata.(Two days after Ars Tech’s Sean Gallagher requested to delete all contact data, the names and numbers were still listed.)Sean Gallagher found two years of call data in his Facebook archive (via Sean Gallagher/Ars Technica)Facebook’s “fact check” memo, published a day after Ars Technica called out the social network, contradicts the experiences of a number of users who shared their data with Ars.McKay, for example, installed Messenger on Android in 2015, allowing only required permissions. Despite removing and reinstating the program “several times” over the years, he claims he never explicitly gave the approval to read SMS records or call history.And Gallagher, who used Facebook on a Nexus tablet and Blackphone 2 but never an Android device, maintains “there was never an explicit message requesting access to phone calls and SMS data.”“Yet there is call data from the end of 2015 until late 2016, when I reinstalled the operating system on the Blackphone 2 and wiped all applications,” he wrote over the weekend.According to Facebook, the company draws the line at collecting content of calls and texts.“Your information is securely stored, and we do not sell this information to third parties,” the blog post said. “You are always in control of the information you share with Facebook.” Downloaded my facebook data as a ZIP fileSomehow it has my entire call history with my partner’s mum pic.twitter.com/CIRUguf4vD— Dylan McKay (@dylanmckaynz) March 21, 2018And the university student/software developer is not alone.IT University of Copenhagen associate professor and Android owner Natalie Schluter reported similar findings.center_img Stay on target ‘Storm Loch Ness’ Joke Facebook Event Aims to Spot Folklore ‘Monster’Nearly 300K Alien Fans Sign Up to ‘Raid Area 51’ for Joke Facebook Event last_img read more

Bad behaviour towards spouse is more impactful

first_imgRefraining from bad behaviour toward a significant other during stressful life events is more important than showing positive gestures, a study has found.Compared with positive behaviour, negative ones tend to trigger more intense and immediate responses, researchers said. How a couple works together during trying times is associated with individual well-being as well as satisfaction with the relationship.”When people face stressful life events, they are especially sensitive to negative behaviour in their relationships, such as when a partner seems to be argumentative, overly emotional, withdrawn or fails to do something that was expected,” said researcher Keith Sanford, a professor at Baylor University in the US. Also Read – Add new books to your shelf”In contrast, they’re less sensitive to positive behaviour,” he said. The study also found that low doses of a behaviour are most important, and over time, more extreme levels have less impact. After negative behaviour reaches a certain saturation point, it appears that stress is only minimally affected by further increases in the dose of relationship problems,” he said.For the study, published in Journal of Family Psychology, researchers surveyed couples experiencing stressful life events to measure their behaviour, relationship satisfaction, personal well-being and quality of life. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveIn the first study, 325 couples who were married or living with a partner all reported experiences of at least one of six possible stressful events within the past month, including: losing a job, becoming a primary caregiver of an older relative, experiencing a parent’s death, and experiencing bankruptcy, foreclosure or repossession of a house or car. The second study included 154 people who were either married or living with a partner and experiencing a serious medical issue meeting one or more of these criteria: a condition requiring hospitalisation or a trip to the emergency room, a serious chronic condition and a life-threatening condition.All participants reported that they had visited a medical practitioner within the past year for treatment of their conditions.All participants also were asked questions about how rewarding their relationships were, their general well-being and their quality of life. The second study, examining couple’s behaviour showed lower levels of negative behaviour than the first study dealing with other types of stressful issues.last_img read more

Olifantskop Dam near Ladysmith to be dredged to increase capacity

first_imgWebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite The morning of Monday, June 19, uThukela District Municipality took to the communities of Waaihoek and Ekuvukeni to address these communities about water-related issues pertaining to Olifantskop Dam.The first meeting commenced at Rockville Community Hall in Nazareth, where the main issue was about the muddy dam overflowing, which limits access to the water.Cllr Thuli Shabalala admitted that the municipality is aware of the issue, but due to the capacity of the work and proper protocol, such as financial viability that needs to be taken into consideration, members of the community need to be patient.Cllr Shabalala told the audience that the process of removing the silt will take place in phases.The project will work as follows: the dredging and clearing up of the silt in the dam, repair the plant, removal of asbestos pipes and the installation of new pipes to handle the capacity of the community.A contractor to undertake the whole project was then introduced to the community. The Mayibuye Construction company has been awarded a tender to carry out the project.Mr Lungile Mbuyisane informed the community that the project would take approximately four months to complete, which is due to commence in 21 days’ time.The community was concerned about water tankers that distribute water in the area as a temporary relief measure. They said they want to be supplied with large-capacity water tankers, as the community is very vast and scattered. Their concern was acknowledged by the leadership.The second meeting was held with the community of Ekuvukeni, whereby uThukela District Deputy Mayor Nombali Sibiya addressed the community. The deputy mayor stated that the Olifantskop Dam was initially intended for just a small number of people, but due to the ever increasing numbers of the community, the dam could not handle the capacity and resulted in the current problem.“Funding has already been made available to the value of R131 million and of that amount, about R30 million will be for the actual project,” said Cllr Sibiya.For compliance purposes, a safety officer will be available on site from the beginning of the project. The project will bring about potential temporary employment opportunities for the local community. Other details will be discussed and communicated back to the community once the plan is in action.Click to receive news links via WhatsApp. Or  for the latest news, visit our webpage or follow us on Facebook and Twitter. Join us there!last_img read more

Talk of Yankee imperialism rankles US Embassy in San José

first_imgCDA Gonzalo R Gallegos: “Las acusaciones cansinas de ‘imperialismo yanqui’ son solo molestos clichés de una era que terminó hace mucho”.— US Embassy San Jose (@usembassysjo) June 4, 2014 Chargé d’Affaires Gonzalo Gallegos, head of the U.S. diplomatic mission in Costa Rica, responded publicly Wednesday to accusations from some lawmakers that joint maritime patrols between Costa Rica and the U.S. constituted “imperialism” in Central America.“Tired accusations of ‘Yankee imperialism’ are just annoying clichés from an era that ended long ago,” tweeted the U.S. Embassy, attributing the comments to Gallegos, who has been the top U.S. diplomatic officer in Costa Rica since 2013.Gallegos responded to comments by Broad Front Party lawmaker Jorge Arguedas made on the floor of the Legislative Assembly on Tuesday:It’s an issue of sovereignty but it’s also an anti-imperialist matter for us as the Broad Front Party caucus. … Costa Rican society is taking a beating from the scourge of drug trafficking but we have also been witness to how we’ve taken a beating from the scourge of North American imperialism.The lawmaker from the leftist party added that the government of the United States and the U.S. Embassy “time and again trample our national sovereignty,” according to transcripts from the Assembly. Broad Front Party lawmaker Jorge Arguedas. (Courtesy Broad Front Party)The Legislative Assembly is debating approval of a list of 44 U.S. Coast Guard vessels that may participate in joint patrols between July 1 and Dec. 31. Costa Rica and the United States have participated in joint anti-drug operations since 1999.Arguedas told The Tico Times that he wanted to see more U.S. efforts in education and job training in Costa Rica to keep young people from getting involved in the illicit trade.“The policies of the United States government are completely imperialist and are an imposition,” Arguedas told The Tico Times.“We don’t know if these ships come equipped with spy technology, spying on the political sector, or other kinds of activities they have carried out in other countries in Europe, like Germany, France,” the lawmaker added, referring to the National Security Agency spying scandal revealed in 2013.Arguedas said that he did not believe the joint maritime patrols were effective, “That’s why we continue to oppose these permissions because the results are not what we expected.”“I want to separate whether or not we’re being successful from whether or not we want Naval boats to come to port,” Gallegos countered.“I know and understand the sore spot that some people in Costa Rica have about U.S. Naval vessels. We’re not asking for that; but we do want to see a continued cooperation with the Coast Guard. That’s an important element to what we’re trying to do to provide security and safety in the [Central American] region,” he said in a telephone interview.Since President Luis Guillermo Solís took office on May 8, Drug Control Police have seized over 3 metric tons of cocaine and marijuana. The Public Security Ministry has credited the joint maritime patrols as part of its success in becoming what it claims is the most effective drug seizure organization in Central America. Gonzalo Gallardo at Casa Amarilla, November 26, 2013 Alberto Font/The Tico TimesGallegos argued that U.S. activities in Costa Rica go beyond drug trafficking.He pointed out that the U.S. provides scholarships for Ticos to learn English, including the Access Microscholarship Program, in which over 100 Costa Rican students participated in a graduation ceremony on Wednesday. Gallegos added that 80 new Peace Corps volunteers were welcomed Wednesday. The diplomat said that half would teach English and the other half would work on economic development projects in some of Costa Rica’s poorest areas.He noted that the U.S. Embassy also works in clean-energy development and works to facilitate opportunities for Ticos to study in the U.S., and improve U.S. investment in Costa Rica, among other goals.In November 2013, U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry formally ended the U.S. foreign policy known as the Monroe Doctrine that essentially afforded the U.S. the right to dominate Latin America.“1960’s dialogue of ‘Yankee imperialism is language from a different era. What we have here [in Costa Rica] is a true partnership working here with the Ticos,” Gallegos said.Update: Following a wave of comments and discussion, the U.S. Embassy in Costa Rica issued a response in Spanish on its Facebook: Facebook Commentscenter_img Related posts:Solís put on the defensive as joint US-Costa Rican patrols come up for renewal Costa Rica seized record-breaking 26 metric tons of cocaine in 2014 Costa Rica Coast Guard confiscates 810 kilos of cocaine near Quepos Mexico drug lord ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán back in jail, betrayed by biopic bidlast_img read more

Hainan forms tourism bodies opens intl HQ

first_imgA beautiful aspect. Source = e-Travel Blackboard: G.A Mr Lee also announced the first annual Hainan Tourism Summit in Sydney and Melbourne, set for 23 November, and the November release of the first definitive ‘Guide to Hainan’, lifting the profile of the destination in Australia.Charter flights between Sydney and Sanya, the Island’s tourism capital, are set to begin in early 2011, further helping travel between the two destinations.To aid travellers and their travel agents HITA is “looking to unify the travel experience in Hainan for all visitors”, with the Hainan Quality Assurance Program which will involve assessing and certifying hotels, tours, parks, restaurants and other tourist amenities. Over the last year Hainan, dubbed the Hawaii of the Far East, posted a ten per cent increase in visitor traffic with growth set to continue as the Island prepares for “ambitious” tourism expansion. By the beach. Popular Hainan is likely to expect a further boost to its growing tourism trade thanks to the formation of the Hainan International Tourism Alliance (HITA) and Hainan Tourism Development Commission (HTDC) in Sydney.The opening of their first international headquarters will see the bodies play a key role in the promotion of Hainan globally, the destination already recording strong growth.“We hope that these new bodies will help establish Hainan as a world leader in tourism,” HITA and HTDC local director Michael Lee said.With the first branch of the newly established HITA and the recent opening of the HTDC and Sanya Tourism Development Commission all in Sydney, Australia is set to be the first Western country to “reap the benefits of this massive undertaking”. Among the projects Hainan has in development are two seven-star hotels, a high-speed rail network, the world’s largest duty free shopping zone and the Island’s first eco-tourism centre.Hainan is also due to host a number of major events including the 2011 International Golf Show.“Hainan’s future looks as bright as its sparkling coastline.” Monkey playing in fresh Hainan waters.last_img read more

(@CMOfficeUP) April 25 2018 Rising cases in recent years The BRD Medical College tragedy in August 2017 in which 30 children died in 48 hours brought the issue of the prevalence of encephalitis in eastern Uttar Pradesh into national focus However cases of AES in Uttar Pradesh have been rising for several years According to this report 12578 people were affected by AES in India in 2017 which constitutes a rise of over 243 percent since 2010 Uttar Pradesh bears the highest burden and 6000 children have died in Gorakhpur region since the virus was first detected in 1978 Why eastern Uttar Pradesh is more prone to encephalitis JE is caused by rice field breeding mosquitoes (primarily the Culex tritaeniorhynchus group) that become infected with the virus The mosquitoes in turn are infected by the virus by feeding on domestic pigs and wild birds which are infected A report mentioned above quotes S Vijaya who is in the Department of Microbiology and Cell Biology at the Indian Institute of Science in Bengaluru as saying that such diseases are more prevalent in Uttar Pradesh due to "local socio-political conditions civic facilities overcrowding poverty corrupt government health systems etc" The topography of eastern Uttar Pradesh may also be a major factor causing the spread of this disease A BBC report pointed out that this region which is at the foothills of the Himalayas is prone to flooding which leads to making it a breeding ground for mosquitoes Nature of the disease AES is an umbrella term for a range of symptoms which cause inflammatory brain diseases The bacteria fungi or viruses which cause these diseases are difficult to individually identify due to which the World Health Organisation has coined the term AES to refer to a range of ailments The Japanese Encephalitis virus (JE) is the most common cause of encephalitis in India accounting for about a quarter of all the cases A informative page by the National Vector Borne Disease Control Programme lists the symptoms of severe JE as "quick onset headache high fever neck stiffness stupor disorientation coma tremors occasional convulsions (especially in infants) and spastic (but rarely flaccid) paralysis" This is one part of a series of readers’ responses to this week’s cover As delegates of an organization that represents the collective voices of 53000 teachers we take issue with the cover selected for the November 3 edition of Time We believe that the image is journalistically irresponsible because it unfairly paints teachers and teacher tenure in a negative light The gavel as a symbol of corporate education smashing the apple – the universal symbol of education – reinforces a text applauding yet another requested deathblow to teacher tenure Instead of clarity this continues the misconception that tenure ensures a job for life It does not It ensures "just cause" rationale before teachers can be fired In addition the cover perpetuates the pernicious myth of the "bad" teacher and tenure as the prime enablers of larger failures in American education This is a false narrative These failures are due to structural inequalities and chronic underfunding in our educational systems not due to teachers and teacher tenure The cover feeds this narrative with the misleading statement "It is nearly impossible to fire bad teachers" A few months ago talk show host Whoopi Goldberg made similar statements suffering under the same basic misunderstanding of teacher tenure as something akin to what college professors enjoy rather than a simple guarantee of procedural due process which is its function in K-12 education Nevertheless opponents of teacher tenure have consistently invoked the "bad teacher" argument as pretext to attack not only teachers but also teacher unions arguing that they place the needs of students second to the protection of underperforming teachers In fact teacher tenure has served as an important protection to allow teachers to advocate for students especially with regard to maintaining manageable class sizes safe instructional spaces the needs of students who are English Language Learners and Students with Disabilities Given the massive increase in student enrollments one of the greatest shortfalls is in the number of teachers themselves A simple accounting of all the teaching positions lost in the great recessions reveals that the nation would need 377000 more teachers in the classroom just to keep pace not to mention combat the shameful shortage of teachers of color In its haste to disparage teachers the cover inadvertently tells a larger truth The instrument used to destroy teacher tenure is wielded against the entire profession It seeks to obliterate due process for all teachers rather than to ensure its proper use More significantly the cover uncritically situates the tech millionaires as saviors without revealing their own self-interest in the tenure fight the creation of a nation of corporate-run franchise schools taught by untrained teachers and measured by high stakes test developed and administered by those same millionaires In an age where transparency in politics and journalism is sorely needed we regret Times decision to proceed with a cover so clearly at odds with the truth In search of more perspectives on TIMEs cover Randi Weingarten President of the American Federation of
