New alliance aims to improve childrens nutrition UNICEF lauds effort

Posted On Oct 6 2019 by

Hailing the new venture, Carol Bellamy, the Executive Director of the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), stressed that good nutrition – both before and after birth – is essential to helping children’s bodies and brains develop properly. Despite some successes in this area, micronutrient deficiencies are still common in populations in developing countries, she told a joint press conference at UN Headquarters in New York, where a special session of the General Assembly on children is currently under way. Adding vitamins and minerals to staple foods like flour and milk has been a common practice in the industrialized world for decades. The new initiative “will bring the benefits that the industrialized world has had an opportunity to enjoy for some time much sooner to those who are not able to enjoy those at this point,” she added.The alliance was also welcomed by Zambian President Levy Patrick Mwanawasa and the President of Sri Lanka, Chandrika Bandaranaike Kumaratunga, who took part in the launch event. President Mwanawasa said the initiative would make a positive contribution in his country. “Inadequate iodine in food consumed by Zambians in some parts of the country continues to have devastating effects on pregnant women and young children,” he said. According to GAIN partners, funds available for the first year will be between $20 and $25 million, with more than $70 million committed over five years, including $50 million from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. “We see this initiative as extremely important on its own, and also the example of the kind of public-private kind of partnership that can bring together the skills and resources to address crying needs for the world’s children,” said Mr. Gates, the Foundation’s co-founder.Illustrating the impact of micronutrients, Mr. Gates pointed out that in the case of measles, if a child was getting sufficient Vitamin A, mortality was reduce by over 30 per cent. “There’s really a virtuous cycle that we all believe in getting going here and that is: as children are more healthy, they’re able to learn more… women choose to have fewer children, economic opportunities go up,” he said.Mr. Gates cited the success of iodized salt, which had helped young people across the developing world, but added that in the areas of iron, Vitamin A and folic acid, “we’re falling short for literally billions of children.” Addressing the issue of corporate participation, John Pepper, Chairman of the Board of Procter and Gamble, stressed the need for the private sector to support governments in the area of nutrition. “It’s a question of will, it’s a question of focus, and it’s a question of organization,” he said. “We have technologies that we know now can bring iron, iodine, Vitamin A and others at an extremely low cost into a variety of foods which people have every day.” read more


Derrick Rose is Back and Stronger Than Ever Defying

Posted On Sep 30 2019 by

You don’t have to like basketball or be a fan of the NBA or even care about Derrick Rose. But if you have a heart and love a story of redemption, you almost have to root for the Chicago Bulls’ point guard.He is an athletic promise that has been denied total fulfillment in the most cruel fashion: injury. Three times.Other great talents have had their bodies fail them, but few cases have been as polarizing as Rose’s. For some reason, countless NBA fans have, instead of empathizing or even feeling sorry for Rose, have called him “soft” and selfish as he endured rigorous rehabilitations.Mind you, none of these “critics” had gone through playing in the NBA and overcoming a torn ACL, then suffering from a torn medial meniscus and then aggravating that injury and requiring a third surgery in three years. How was Rose “soft” for not coming back until he believed he was ready? How can someone judge how someone else’s body feels?In fact, Rose should have been credited for not rushing back, for taking control of his career and not succumbing to outside pressure. Instead, he was criticized by people who apparently do not understand the mental and physical toll major injuries take on a world-class athlete.All that, and there was Rose this weekend, stronger than ever, if not physically, certainly mentally. He played brilliantly and explosively in the Bulls’ Game 1 first-round playoff victory over the Milwaukee Bucks. He scored 23 points and displayed the kind of dynamic speed, power and quickness that made him the league’s MVP just four years ago.When he left the game to a standing ovation at the United Center, it marked a triumphant end of an emotional return, a return his naysayers hardly believed would happen this year when he was felled about three months ago.“I only had, like, three goals,” Rose said of his first playoff game in three years, “and that was to have fun, have no expectations and to compete.”That’s another thing about Rose. Despite all the criticism, he remained centered and humble, always resisting the urge to fire back. That takes strength.“I’m grateful to be playing with my teammates,” Rose said. “They allow me to play the way I normally play. It’s an honor. I’m really fortunate because I think, anywhere else, it wouldn’t be the same.”Maybe Rose will never return to NBA MVP form. Here’s the thing: He doesn’t have to be that player again. He can be just what he was Sunday and still rank among the game’s best.“You’re talking about a guy now who’s sort of in the middle of his career,” Chicago coach Tom Thibodeau said. “He’s been through a lot. I think early on, you’re 22 years old, you’re the M.V.P. of the league, and there weren’t many bumps in the road. He’s hit a few bumps. He’s gotten through those.”That’s the other thing: Those who called Rose “soft” got it backward. He showed strength in coming back after the first injury. He empowered himself by creating a timetable that worked for him. People didn’t like that he said he wanted to be healthy enough to play with his kids when he quit basketball—a noble gesture from here. He showed enormous strength in coming back after the second injury, when he could have emotionally collapsed. And to suffer a third surgery a few months ago, only to return before the season’s end, and to play as he did in Game 1. . . strength.Of course, there are many who will stick to their original position on Rose. But they will be missing the fact that Rose is still here, still playing, still has his head up. For all he has gone through, that’s hardly soft. read more


The Heat Dispatched the Pacers … From a Distance

Posted On Sep 28 2019 by

On Friday night, the Miami Heat buried the Indiana Pacers under a barrage of 3-pointers, taking Game 6 by 25 points and advancing to the NBA Finals for the fourth consecutive season. The Heat were 11 of 26 from behind the 3-point arc (the third game in this series that their 3-point makes hit double-digits). Outside shooting is a central pillar of Miami’s offense, but the degree to which it used these shots to beat the Pacers was surprising.The Pacers had one of the stingiest defenses in the NBA during the regular season, and defending the 3-point line was one of their biggest strengths: the Pacers both discouraged 3-point attempts and held down their opponents’ 3-point accuracy. The Heat, meanwhile, were one of the most frequent and accurate 3-point shooting teams during the regular season.With a great defense matching up against a great offense, competing strengths dancing around a specific facet of the game, we would expect the results to fall somewhere in the middle.Not so much. In the Eastern Conference finals, the 3-point battle was won, emphatically, by the Heat’s offense.The Pacers didn’t limit the Heat’s 3-point attempts. The Heat took more. And those 3-point shots weren’t forced. They came within the framework of Miami’s offense; the Heat even pushed their accuracy past their own regular-season mark.The Heat’s 3-point shooting from the corners was particularly important. Other than a shot at the basket, no other location, on average, yields a higher expected value than a corner 3-pointer. Against the Pacers, the Heat took nearly twice as many of these shots as the Pacers’ defense allowed during the regular season.This 3-point bombardment came from just about everywhere. Six different Heat players made six or more 3-pointers in the series, and six different players made at least one corner 3-pointer. Six different Heat players assisted on a 3-pointer. In short, the load was shared in making and facilitating these shots.In their half-court offense, the Heat almost always have their eye on an open 3-point look. The Heat’s opponent in the NBA Finals is still to be determined. Both the San Antonio Spurs and Oklahoma City Thunder present stout defenses. But the Thunder were roughly middle of the pack in the regular season in limiting 3-point attempts and makes. The Spurs, on the other hand, were among the league’s best — similar to the Pacers. Of course, the Heat have just shown they can get the shots they want against an elite defense keyed toward stopping them.Correction (May 31, 8:00 p.m.): A previous version of this post incorrectly counted the number of Heat players to make seven or more 3-pointers and at least one corner 3-pointer in the Eastern Conference finals. read more

Even the blind can drive in Greece

Posted On Sep 21 2019 by

first_imgSome 36,000 disability allowances will be cut at the end of the month, following a national investigation into fraudulent claims, the government said. Deputy Health Minister Markos Bolaris said the government would save 111 million euros in false claims following a census of some 240,000 benefit recipients. “It’s come to our attention that people who were receiving benefits for blindness were actually continuing to drive. So, when you think about it: these people were going to an eye doctor for their disability exam and then another eye doctor for their driving licence.” Health Minister Andreas Loverdos announced this week that during the second phase of the census, when the beneficiaries are examined by the Centre for Certifying Disability, the savings are expected to reach the 230 million euro mark. The minister noted that 36,294 of the registered beneficiaries failed to present themselves for the census. More specifically, 203,998 beneficiaries presented themselves as opposed to 240,292 that received benefits. This meant that benefits spending would be reduced from 941,289,609 euros in 2011 to 830,650,500 euros in 2012, a saving of 110,639,109 euros. Loverdos gave examples, noting that of 125,368 registered recipients for benefits of severe disability in 2011, only 108,200 turned up for the census and the remaining 17,168 are assumed to have been receiving the benefit illegally. Similarly, nearly half of those receiving benefits for unprotected minors failed to participate in the census. Ministry officials said clusters of suspected fraud had been found, with blindness claims unusually high in Chios, Kavala, and Iraklio and other claims high in Halkida, Serres and Komotini. The census was carried out between February 1st and March 16th this year, in order to create a nationwide register of benefit recipients and a map of the frequency of disabilities by area, both to check the benefits given and to preclude cases of people drawing benefits in two different areas.

The Week Panel Was the Media Biased Or Was Obama Just the

Posted On Sep 14 2019 by

first_imgLesley Stahl—who said she watched most of this campaign, unlike others she had covered, from “her bedroom”—said McCain “did such a dreadful job as a candidate” the media had no choice but to cover Obama.“McCain was like the 1962 Mets,” said Shrum, who had served as a senior advisor to the Gore-Lieberman and Kerry-Edwards tickets in 2000 and 2004, respectively. “They couldn’t cover him positively.”Shrum added that there was a natural bias because the Obama-Clinton race lasted longer than the race for the Republican nomination.  “A Time magazine cover with John McCain in April would’ve looked ridiculous,” he said, “because McCain had it locked up.”“Obama was new,” Weisberg said. “It had to do with a bias toward the story.” Weisberg also suggested the media-at-large kept Hillary Clinton in the race for the Democratic nomination longer than she should have been. “It was [becoming] mathematically impossible,” Weisberg said. “But [a longer campaign] serves the interests of the media.”Weisberg added that while Obama’s oratory skills were universally celebrated, few talked about his “skill as a writer” and “sense of language,” which moderator and Week editor-at-large Sir Harold Evans described as “incandescent.”Rather, who filed a $70 million lawsuit against CBS for making him a “scapegoat” in the so-called “Rathergate” controversy in 2004, said Republicans “need to get hip to the Internet and things like YouTube.” (Ironically, it was the Internet, specifically conservative bloggers, which spurred on “Rathergate” and led to the newsman’s undoing at CBS.)With the exception of Scarborough, the panelists agreed that the press coverage of Sarah Palin was fair, and disputed the notion that Palin was “destroyed by comedy.” Rollins, a senior advisor to Mike Huckabee, said there was never a conversation between McCain and Huckabee—or, for that matter, Mitt Romney—about the vice presidency.PHOTOS: Time; ILLUSTRATION: FOLIO: RELATED SLIDESHOW: Covers of the CampaignNEW YORK—During a wide-ranging discussion entitled “The Media and the Presidency” hosted by the Week magazine at Rockefeller Center’s Rainbow Room last night, six panelists—three from television (MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough, 60 Minutes’ Lesley Stahl and ex-CBS News anchor Dan Rather, now with HDNet), two political advisors-turned-pundits (Robert Shrum and Edward Rollins) and one new media guy (Slate’s Jacob Weisberg)—assessed the 2008 presidential campaign and the role the media played in it.Scarborough, who introduced himself as the host of Morning Joe—“now with a seven-second delay”—said the media was clearly biased toward Barack Obama and against Hillary Clinton and John McCain, but admitted Obama ran “the best campaign I have ever seen.”But if the campaign was a “game of streetball,” Rather said, “McCain was playing in street clothes and street shoes.”last_img read more


Can marital status alter physical activity levels

Posted On Aug 31 2019 by

first_imgLondon: While a divorce or a new relationship brings many changes in a person’s life, a new study shows an association with reduced physical activity levels.The findings showed that men who divorced and women who found a new partner reduced their physical exercises. The total number of non-exercise steps was reduced for men who divorced, whereas for women who found a new spouse, the total steps decreased significantly when compared to women married throughout. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfAccording to the researchers, it is difficult to provide a single explanatory factor about the effects of changes in marital status on physical activity. “It seems that the changes in relationships affect the physical activity of men and women differently,” said Kasper Salin, postdoctoral researcher from the University of Jyvaskyla in Finland. For the study, published in the Journal of Public Health, the team included 1,051 participants aged between 34 and 49. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveThey also investigated the relationship between socioeconomic position and changes in physical activity. They found that among the men and women with the highest socioeconomic status, the number of aerobic steps increased significantly over the four years. Here, aerobic steps refers to steps taken during activities that last for at least 10 minutes without interruption at a pace of 60 or more steps per minute. “The rise in the number of steps focused on the highest social classes, especially in aerobic steps,” says Salin. “From the point of view of maintaining fitness, it is important to add aerobic steps.”last_img read more

The large files created by many high-resolution digital cameras are too bulky to upload easily and use in listings; small 72 dpi images are fine.One solution is to use one of two Casio cameras (priced at $300 and $400) with the “eBay Best Shot Mode.” This feature automatically reduces the size of the picture and overall file size. If your camera doesn’t do this, you will often need to resize your photo and perhaps change the quality to medium or so to make it easier to load in your listing. If you’re listing small items, you’ll need the ability to use a macro lens for close-ups; consider placing a small object or ruler next to the item to indicate size. Focus carefully–soft-focus pictures look fuzzy and unappealing. If you don’t have natural lighting, choose a camera that has an external flash for better lighting. Control over white balance also helps you photograph in light other than daylight. The best background is white seamless paper, available from professional camera shops. Finally, you’ll want a camera that’s easy to connect to your computer for uploading images.Sell Your ItemThe “Sell Your Item” form is the eBay seller’s gateway to the 222 million registered eBay members. The newest version of the form features a simplified listing process with fewer pages and fields, cutting down on the time it takes to create a listing.

The new form also supports the Firefox browser. There is a “category suggestions” feature that gives you advice on listing your item in the best category for maximum exposure. Other additions are dynamic help and personalized tips, which automatically provide guidance and best practices as you make your way through the form. The new form also offers a listing preview section that lets you see in advance what your listing will look like when potential buyers see it. Finally, there are reusable listing templates to make it easier to list additional items.

The good news is, you probably already do. What Would You Sell? is an eBay feature that helps you identify items you own that you could sell on eBay. It also helps you see how similar items have fared, decide whether to sell yours and get help listing them.Here’s how it works: What Would You Sell? displays mock-ups of rooms in a typical house, such as bedrooms, a living room, etc. Clicking on one of these rooms takes you to the appropriate mock-up. When you click on one of the items in the picture–a painting on the living room wall, for example–a window will pop up with information about similar items on eBay; for instance, art sells on eBay every 14 seconds. Clicking a link in the window takes you to recently completed listings in that category.A link on the “What Would You Sell?” page takes you directly to a “Sell Your Item” form so you can instantly begin the process of turning your unwanted items into cash. If you need selling tips, another link takes you to Seller Central.

Cooper And Brian Melley, The Associated Press Posted Nov 9, 2018 6:40 pm PDT Last Updated Nov 9, 2018 at 8:48 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email California city reeling from mass shooting besieged by fire THOUSAND OAKS, Calif. – A city reeling from the tragedy of a mass shooting was under a siege of a different sort Friday as raging wildfires on both sides of the city forced widespread evacuations and shut down part of the main freeway to town.Flames driven by powerful winds torched at least 150 homes in Southern California, burning parts of tony Calabasas and mansions in Malibu and prompting orders for 250,000 people— including some celebrities — to flee as the fire marched across the Santa Monica Mountains toward the sea. The cause of the blazes was not known.For Thousand Oaks, which had been considered one of the safest cities in the nation before a gunman massacred 12 people at a country music bar, the spasm of violence jolted the city’s sense of security. Encroaching flames, despite the near-constant threat of fire in the bone-dry state, presented an entirely different hazard.“It’s devastating. It’s like ‘welcome to hell,’” resident Cynthia Ball, said about the dual disasters while she was outside the teen centre serving as a shelter for evacuees. “I don’t even know what to say. It’s like we’re all walking around kind of in a trance.”A day earlier, the facility had been the location where grieving family members had gathered and received the grim news on the fate of loved ones who had not returned from the Borderline Bar and Grill, where a Marine combat veteran went on a shooting rampage Wednesday before apparently killing himself.The investigation into what drove Ian David Long, 28, to kill was continuing even as the city about 40 miles (64 kilometres) from Los Angeles was under threat from one of three major wildfires burning in the state.Three-quarters of the city of 130,000 was under evacuation orders — and that likely included people affected by the shooting, said Thousand Oaks Mayor Andy Fox.“Here we are just a few hours later talking now about another crisis right here in Thousand Oaks,” Fox said, making the distinction that the shooting victims and their families had experienced a permanent loss. “Those lives will never be recovered. Tonight we’re talking about a serious fire situation, but thankfully we have not lost a single life. And as difficult as it may be, homes can be rebuilt, property can be reacquired.”Throughout the day, air tankers swooped through the skies, making low passes to dump water and flame retardant as firefighters tried to protect homes amid gusts topping 60 mph (96 kph). The winds and smoky conditions made for difficult firefighting and at times grounded firefighting aircraft.In addition to the large hillside homes that ignited and blazed brightly in the middle of the day, the “Western Town” at Paramount Ranch, a popular filming location that included an old West jail, hotel and saloon, burned to the ground.The entire city of Malibu — home to Hollywood stars and entertainment moguls — was under a mandatory evacuation order and had lost power in places. Fleeing residents jammed Pacific Coast Highway in a procession that crept along as smoke billowed overhead and mansions on the hills went up in flames.In Thousand Oaks, flames creeping down a hillside were visible from the teen centre on Janns Road — named for the family that originally developed the hilly terrain covered with majestic California oaks into what has become a large bedroom community.Evacuees described harrowing escapes from flames that picked up unexpectedly Thursday afternoon.At the Vallecito mobile home park for seniors, the fire came so quickly that residents had no time to gather medications and documents. With flames bearing down, firefighters carried people from homes and put them in empty seats of their neighbours’ cars, said Carol Napoli, 74.Napoli left with her friend, the friend’s son and her mother who is in her 90s and had to leave behind her oxygen tank.“We drove through flames to get out. They had us in like a caravan,” Napoli said. “My girlfriend was driving. She said, ‘I don’t know if I can do this…’ Her son said, ‘Mom you have to, you have to drive through the flames.’”Rich McMillen, 72, had put a few belongings in his car when he noticed smoke picking up and saw flames in the distance. By the time a cellphone alert told him to evacuate, the flames were nearly upon the trailer park, burning on a hillside.“You could feel the heat from the flames,” said McMillen, who returned Friday and found his home intact but stinking of smoke.While evacuees arrived at the teen centre, firetrucks staged across the street at a command post.Ventura County Supervisor Peter Foy made a plea at a fire news conference to residents to help their neighbours during this difficult time.“We appreciate everybody’s efforts and kind prayers for all the people from our victims that lost their lives in the shooting to now what’s happening with people losing their homes,” Foy said.A section of U.S. Highway 101, the main link between Los Angeles and Ventura and Santa Barbara, was closed because of fire.The day before under clear skies and no smoke, thousands gathered along the freeway to watch a motorcade carrying the body of a sheriff’s deputy who was killed when he rushed in to confront the shooter.___Melley reported from Los Angeles.
