UN agency sounds alarm on mounting hunger in Chad

Although there are signs of improvement in Niger, which is in the midst of a severe food crisis, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) warned that child malnutrition rates are alarmingly high in neighbouring Chad.“We’ve seen the positive impact of timely, well-coordinated food and nutrition assistance delivered in partnership with the Government in Niger,” where almost half of the 15-million strong population are hungry, said WFP Executive Director Josette Sheeran.But in Chad, which experienced a long and crippling lean season, “children are weak and need to continue receiving food and nutritional support,” she stressed.Weak and erratic rainfall across the eastern Sahel destroyed much of last year’s harvest, also drying up watering holes for cattle.To respond to the situation, WFP rolled out emergency food assistance operations in Niger and Chad to meet children’s nutritional needs and to keep families fed through the lean season, when food is in short supply and prices are on the upswing.Manuel Aranda da Silva, the agency’s Emergency Coordinator for the Eastern Sahel, said that in some parts of Niger, prices are starting to fall in local markets and malnutrition rates among the very young are stabilizing.Mr. Aranda da Silva, who has just wrapped up a fact-finding mission to Niger and Chad, said that hunger rates remain high among Chadian children. Global acute malnutrition rates in Chad for children under the age of two are as high as 26 per cent in places, far exceeding the 15 per cent emergency threshold.That figure is nearly 4 per cent above the international definition for an emergency situation.WFP, he said, must maintain its operation for at least the next three months, as well as begin tackling some of the structural causes of malnutrition and food insecurity to bolster resilience to recurrent droughts.“The health system in Chad does not cover all areas, and there are fewer non-governmental organizations to support WFP’s food distributions,” he noted, emphasizing that even though harvest time is approaching, it is dangerous to scale back nutritional support for Chadian children. 16 September 2010Although there are signs of improvement in Niger, which is in the midst of a severe food crisis, the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) warned that child malnutrition rates are alarmingly high in neighbouring Chad. read more

6 Ways Integration Decimated Black College Sports

Once, Black college sports were all the rage. The players with the most talent and creativity went to historically Black colleges and that was that. Then integration hit in the mid-1960s, and slowly but sadly, the Black athlete began to consider it the thing to do by playing somewhere else. Soon, Black colleges saw a drop in star athletes coming to their schools. Soon, the lure of play at a majority college took over and Black colleges were left, in many cases, stagnant and troubled.Talent FledOnce integration hit and coaches at major colleges suppressed their biases, they used the freedom they had to recruit the players they had long admired from afar at Black colleges. They used the inducement of having better training facilities, playing in front of much larger crowds and exposure to the NFL as enticements … and the Black athletes gradually began turning away from historically Black colleges and universities. read more

Dont call it a battle Ohio State footballs Reid Fragel Taylor Decker

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer is calling the competition for the Buckeyes’ starting right tackle job a “battle,” but that word seems too strong when you hear the players involved discuss the matter. Senior tight end-turned-lineman Reid Fragel is opposed in his pursuit of the starting position by freshman Taylor Decker. Fragel said he doesn’t begrudge Decker for opposing him, nor does Decker wish to supplant the Buckeyes’ three-time letter-winner in cold blood. Quite the opposite – they’re supporting each other in the competition and both players said they plan to keep it that way during OSU football’s annual media day Sunday at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center. Meyer said he isn’t satisfied with either players’ performance so far and noted their position as one of the weaker ones on the entire team, as well as one of few ongoing position battles. “One guy is learning how to play (the position) and one guy is a freshman,” Meyer said during OSU’s media day. “They’re trying hard. They’re talented guys. They’re great people, but our production at right tackle isn’t where it needs to be.” For Fragel’s part in the bout at the right tackle, he volunteered to change positions after Meyer was hired for OSU’s coaching job in November. “I knew when coach Meyer came in, his offensive philosophy was different from (former OSU coach Jim) Tressel,” Fragel said. “Being a pro-style tight end, I knew I couldn’t fit in as a spread tight end. I also knew I had some blocking ability and size to work with.” For his offer to switch positions – an act some might consider selfless and for OSU’s betterment – Fragel was rewarded with a fight for playing time with Decker, a 6-foot-10, 310-pound first-year player from Vandalia, Ohio. The players have formed a bond through their competition, though – Decker even disclaims every positive remark about himself with an equally positive nod to the elder linesman he is fighting for playing time against. “I feel like I know that offense really well, not that Reid doesn’t. Reid knows the offense really well,” Decker said. “I try to study well and come off the ball hard, and, I mean, Reid does those things well also.” Fragel, who pulled in five catches for 64 yards in 13 games during the 2011 season, agreed with Decker, saying “whatever” to anyone that thinks of the players’ competition as a battle. In fact, Decker is routinely aided by Fragel in practice – some battle, indeed. “We don’t avoid each other or anything like that,” Fragel said of their off-field relationship. “It’s not like two gunslingers walking past each other. I definitely try to help him out.” It seems unlikely this friendly competition will end in the kind of football training camp brawls that receive national attention this time every year. By the end of camp, one player will be slated to see significantly more time on the Ohio Stadium turf than the other.  Both players appear happy to defer to the other, though, and Fragel said it’s what’s best for the team. “At the end of the day, Taylor’s a great player,” he said, “and the way it should be in any system is the better player will play.” You might say Decker agreed with Fragel, but you could also argue “agreed” isn’t strong enough verbiage in the same way “battle” doesn’t accurately describe the players’ competition. “Reid’s a great player. He’s obviously a tremendous athlete, being a tight end and everything,” Decker said. “I would love to be able to play… but I love (Fragel).” OSU opens the 2012 season Sept. 1 against Miami (Ohio). The game is scheduled for a noon kickoff at the Horseshoe. read more

Keep pushing forward working hardTop awardee Aadilah Ali

Aadilah Ali receiving one of her many awards for from Minister of Education Dr Nicolette HenryTop students from various schools were today awarded for their outstanding performances at the 22nd National Award Ceremony was hosted by the Education Ministry at the National Cultural Centre.The theme for the event was “Education for a Good Life Through Innovation and STEAMS.”Aadilah Ali was the Ministry’s top awardee carrying away awards for Best Performer at both the 2017 and 2018 Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations (CAPE), Most Outstanding Overall and the Most Outstanding in Natural Sciences.Speaking to the Department of Public Information (DPI) Ali said that it felt amazing receiving the awards as her hard work had finally paid off. She also had words of encouragement for other students:“I look at failure as a stepping stone, I do not look at it as an obstacle, so for me, what I want people to take away from my experience is that you need to push forward. Even little obstacles, you should not let them overtake you. Keep pushing forward and working hard and you will get what you deserve.”Ali is currently studying for a degree in medicine at the University of Guyana.Minister of Education Dr Nicolette Henry delivering the feature address commended the student, describing the ceremony as a celebration of their achievements and determination.“This is significant because we recognise that their success is not accidental, nor did their dreams become a reality through luck or chance. It took hard work and in some instances sweat, determination, sacrifices and most of all appreciation for what you were and are doing daily in your classroom and learning environment.”(left to right) Chief Education Officer Marcel Hutson, Minister of Education Dr Nicolette Henry and Permanent Secretary to the Ministry of Education (ag) Adele Clarke along with the with top studentsChief Education Officer Marcel Hutson noted that education is the only path towards development of self and country, “… education creates within individuals the capacity to perform certain functions for themselves such as reading and writing and problem-solving and therefore such individuals become employable and useful to society.”Parents, teachers and guardians were also commended by Hutson who said without the guidance of these individuals, the success of the students might not have been realised.Students were awarded for their outstanding performances at the Caribbean Secondary Education Certificate, Caribbean Advanced Proficiency Examinations, the National Grade Six Assessment and individual subjects among other areas.

YTC forecasts decline in Myanmar tin production

first_imgThe ITRI reports that Yunnan Tin Co (YTC) has forecast diminishing tin production from Myanmar over the next few years from its estimate of 24,000 t of tin mined in the country in 2014. In 2014, after six years as a net importer of refined tin, China became a net exporter of the metal due to the rapid growth of tin-concentrate imports from Myanmar which allowed China’s refined tin production to rise 10% to 175,000 t in 2014 compared to the previous year.YTC recently visited the Man Maw mining area in Myanmar’s Wa County, which has been the location of rapid growth in the countries mined tin production over the last couple of years. At the ITRI China International Tin Forum in Shanghai, YTC’s General Manager, Zhang Fu, outlined the company’s belief that Myanmar’s 2014 tin production was a peak, and that resource and grade depletion at Man Maw will result in a progressive decline in production in the following years.ITRI is forecasting total annual tin production in Myanmar of 35,000 t in 2015, which represents a 16% increase on the 30,000 t of tin that ITRI estimates was mined in the country in 2014. Both these figures include roughly 2,000 t of tin from operations in Myanmar unrelated to the Man Maw mining area. However, the ITRI concurs with YTC’s view that current levels of tin production from Man Maw are unsustainable and will decrease over the next few years.Picture courtesy of YTC.last_img read more

Caterpillar roof supports to extend Whitehavens Narrabri North longwall

first_imgWhitehaven Coal Ltd has placed an order for 50 Cat® longwall roof supports to extend its Narrabri North longwall from 300 m to 400 m to increase production and reduce costs. Already regarded as one of the most productive longwalls in Australia, the current system set a monthly production record of 1.057 Mt in April. The mine in New South Wales will start mining its first 400 m wide panel in the second half of 2017.Narrabri is operating a complete Cat longwall mining system including an EL3000 shearer, roof supports, AFCPF6 face conveyor and BSLPF6 beam stage loader with crusher and boot end. The order of Cat roof supports includes 43 face roof supports and 7 gate road supports with 2.05 m spacing, 2.25 to 4.70 m height range, 450 mm leg diameter and 13,000 kN support capacity.Last year the mine ordered a second EL3000 shearer based on the productive performance of the first machine. The EL3000 Shearer features a unique one-piece mainframe engineered to optimise productivity while ensuring reliability and durability. The ranging arms feature cast hinge points designed to handle higher cutting and haulage forces, such as 860 kW (1,380 hp) cutting forces with haulage capable of 32 m/min while cutting.According to Whitehaven, the mechanical availability of the second Cat shearer since its installation in September 2015 is very good. Advanced, state-based automation is boosting longwall productivity and reducing downtime. Functionalities such as horizon control and face alignment provide a consistent cutting process.Narrabri established a new calendar year production record of 8.3 Mt of ROM coal in 2015. Whitehaven’s June quarter production report explains further positive results: “As a direct consequence of the higher production levels, production costs have fallen with Narrabri confirming its place as Whitehaven’s lowest cost mine.”last_img read more

Antennerelais un enseignant porte plainte contre X

first_imgAntenne-relais : un enseignant porte plainte contre XUn enseignant de Nanterre a porté plainte contre X en demandant le démantèlement d’antenne-relais appartenant à Bouygues Telecom et qui sont placées sur le toit de son lycée.L’affaire relance une nouvelle fois le débat sur les conséquences de l’exposition aux ondes. Mardi, l’AFP fait part de la plainte contre X déposée au pénal par un enseignant de Nanterre. Celui-ci réclame le démantèlement d’antennes-relais de Bouygues Telecom situées sur le toit de son lycée (Joliot-Curie), estimant que les ondes émises par celles-ci peuvent constituer un risque sanitaire. Le professeur, Frédéric Bailleux, indique en effet que le niveau des champs électro-magnétiques relevés près du gymnase du lycée pourrait “provoquer des dysfonctionnements d’appareils tels que des défibrillateurs ou des pace-makers” et constituer “un danger pour les élèves [1 300] et personnels du lycée”. À lire aussiInternet mobile : Bouygues Telecom ouvre totalement les usages de ses forfaitsD’ailleurs M. Bailleux ne serait pas le seul à entamer une telle démarche puisqu’il affirme que sept autres enseignants du lycée auraient également porté plainte. De son côté, Bouygues Telecom a réagi en indiquant que “les niveaux d’exposition sont faibles et tout à fait conformes à la réglementation”. Jean-Philippe Desreumaux, directeur de fréquences et protection chez Bouygues Telecom se base sur les résultats d’un rapport commandé fin 2011 à un laboratoire de mesures de champs électro-magnétiques pour appuyer ses dires. Toutefois, sollicité par M. Bailleux, le Criirem (Centre de recherche et d’information indépendantes sur les rayonnements électromagnétiques) conteste les conclusions de ce même rapport. Une contestation elle-même critiquée part M. Desreumaux qui estime que “le Criirem n’est pas habilité à effectuer ce type de mesures et inquiète inutilement les gens”. Mais la plainte de M. Bailleux ne concerne pas que ce point-là puisque celui-ci affirme aussi que le contrat passé en 1995 pour l’installation des antennes-relais est arrivé à terme en 2009. Une autre assertion également démentie par Bouygues Telecom qui semble indiquer “être en relation” avec le proviseur de ce lycée.Le 12 juin 2012 à 17:14 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

How Tinder Is Taking Your Nights Out Further

first_imgJuly 21, 2016 This story was updated on July 21, 2016, at 4:42 p.m. ET to reflect comment from Tinder co-founder and CEO Sean Rad.Some say Tinder is all about making friends with benefits, one tryst at a time. As of today, it can also be about hooking up with more than one “friend” at once, for a little group fun.That’s because the world’s largest and most chronically controversial dating app just swiped right on simultaneously connecting multiple “friends.” To help you better “plan your night,” the Match Group subsidiary has freshly unveiled Tinder Social, a new in-app feature that enables users to collectively concoct an adventurous night out.Step up your game with Tinder Social! #HowWeGotHere pic.twitter.com/BP4Mtvm57F— Tinder (@Tinder) July 21, 2016 Whether that nocturnal knot is romantic or strictly friend-zone quality time is totally up to you, players. “Maybe you spark a romantic connection. Maybe you make new friends,” a Tinder blog post introducing the new feature teases. “Either way, a good night out with your friends becomes something better.” Better because the more, the merrier.  Tinder Social, which was tested in small batches in Australia earlier this year, enables Tinder users to “invite your friends to swipe & match with groups of friends going out tonight.” Translation: It lets you form a squad by selecting a collection of friends who are, you know, also feeling the group love (and have unlocked the new feature). Just like hookup matches, Tinder Social matches must also be mutual.Group buddies who opt in can also message each other together and share what they’re “up to” from an emoji-bedecked list of suggested activities, which we have a hunch introverts and homebodies might not heart. Among the prefab night-on-the-town options are “road trip!”, “working out”, “headed to a concert”, “club night”, “pub crawl … join us”, “happy hour, anyone?” and “let’s party!” Bummer, Marge, we don’t see “book club” or “knitting circle” on the list.Related: This Dating App Lets Your Actual Heart Choose Your MatchesWhatever happens, happens. “Just remember — at noon the next day, your group expires, your matches disappear and your Uber turns into a pumpkin,” Tinder warns on its blog.With this latest release, Tinder seems to be inching closer to morphing into a social network of sorts. Similar to how Snapchat and Facebook are carving out more ways to keep users engaged, Tinder too appears to want its users to hang out inside its app for longer stretches of time, chatting it up with one another.  Tinder’s co-founder and CEO Sean Rad hails the new feature as “the ultimate tool for planning your next adventure.” He says it “takes the Tinder experience to a new level…” How deep (or polyamorous) you level up is up to you.”Tinder is about facilitating new connections,” Rad tells Entrepreneur in an email. “We’ve changed the way people meet one-to-one, with more than 11 billion matches made since launch. But another way we meet new people is going out with our friends. With Tinder Social, planning your night, meeting other groups of friends and going out is simplified — and more fun — than before.”Related: The Kinky Ménage à Trois Startup That Tinder Wants to Kill (and How It’s Fighting Back)But whatever you do, don’t call it 3nder.

This would allow a general practitioner (GP) to diagnose even preclinical patients for the early onset of a disease.According to the World Health Organization, cardiovascular disease is the leading cause of death in the world today. In 2015 over 17.3 million people, roughly 30 percent of all global deaths, died as a result of cardiovascular conditions such as coronary heart disease, heart attacks or strokes.CVDs can be identified using a number of medical tools, including cardiac biomarkers, cardiac catheterization, chest X-ray, electrocardiogram (ECG), Holter monitoring and cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). However, because they are complicated or expensive, routine early forecasting of CVD is impossible in large populations at present.This new diagnostic tool developed by the EU’s Horizon 2020 collaboration ‘CARDIS’, (‘CARdiovascular disease Detection with Integrated Silicon Photonics’), can read the heart’s vital signs with one click of a button, similar to the way a handheld supermarket scanner can scan barcodes at the checkout.Employing laser Doppler vibrometry, a technique using photonics technology, the device can pick up vital information about the status of the heart using light, in a fast and inexpensive way.It works by harnessing the Doppler effect, the phenomenon used to observe changes in pitch of light or sound from a fixed point, and commonly experienced when an ambulance siren passes and changes in tone.Using the Doppler shift of the reflected light, the scanner builds up a ‘vibration map’ of the chest and heart area, which can highlight the telltale signs of CVD, such as plaque build-up, arterial stiffness, arterial stenosis or heart dyssyncrony. Project coordinator Mirko de Melis explained:”Our device employs the latest photonics technology, allowing a user to make measurements of the vibration characteristics of the heart without even touching it.”A stiff artery creates a faster pulse pressure from the patient’s beating heart. By measuring the pulse wave velocity, we can assess the stiffness of the arteries using light and make informed judgments, long before the onset of cardiovascular disease,” he said.Although there are a number of vibration sensors that exist for this purpose, LDV is non-invasive and provides a much higher degree of accuracy in a fraction of the time.”At present, millions considered to be low or moderate risk are walking around undiagnosed,” said de Melis. “It is our long-term goal to place such a device in the hands of the GP, the first point of contact for the mass population, as part of a routine health examination.””The screening of potential sufferers, who are in their early 40s, would delay the onset of the condition by 5-10 years. Assuming a sufferer would comply with the health advice given and adopted a change in lifestyle, this device allows the medical professional to halt or even reverse CVD,” De Melis said. The CARDIS team believe the key to the success of a mass screening program at the GP-patient level is the inexpensive and portable nature of the new laser scanner: “Our device would be cheap, easy to use and extremely effective. With cost of an echocardiographer anything above EUR 100k, and an arterial tonometer at EUR 5,000-EUR 6,000, the CARDIS scanner would be reasonably priced at around EUR 1,500. However it is the potential savings on our health services caused by the early diagnosis and prevention of CVD that will be the most rewarding,” De Melis explained.  While the EU consortium is happy with their demonstration model, CARDIS will be ready to unveil their prototype in summer 2018.For more information: www.cardis-h2020.eu FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Cardiac Imaging | July 30, 2019 VIDEOS | EP LAB | JULY 26, 2019 VIDEO: What Electrophysiologists Need From CT Imaging Prior to AF and VT Ablations Mark Ibrahim, M.D., F read more Feature | Cardiac Imaging | July 24, 2019 | Greg Freiherr FFR-CT: Is It Radiology or Cardiology?

Following Instagram founders Brendan Iribe Oculus cofounder leaves Facebook

first_imgThe co-founder and former CEO of Oculus, Brendan Iribe announced yesterday on his Facebook page that he’s leaving Facebook. This is the second high profile exit from Facebook within a span of a month, as Kevin Systrom, CEO, Instagram, Mike Kriege, CTO, Instagram also resigned from Facebook on 24th September. “So much has happened since the day we founded Oculus in July 2012. I never could have imagined how much we would accomplish and how far we would come. And now, after six incredible years, I am moving on”, mentioned Iribe. It was back in March 2014 when Facebook had acquired Oculus VR for $3 billion. “I’m deeply proud and grateful for all that we’ve done together. We assembled one of the greatest research and engineering teams in history, delivered the first step of true virtual presence with Oculus Rift and Touch, and inspired an entirely new industry. We started a revolution that will change the world in ways we can’t even envision”, writes Iribe. Another Oculus co-founder, Palmer Luckey, left Facebook in 2017. Luckey who had not mentioned anything regarding his departure from Facebook last year mentioned that “there’s a lot of people at Facebook who have been leaving that were very happy to work at Facebook in 2012 that don’t want to work at Facebook in 2018. I can’t talk about it too much, but I’ll say that it wasn’t my choice to leave,” earlier this month to CNBC. Iribe talked about how the VR and AR industry needs to improve more, specifically the hardware and core technology. Iribe believes that Oculus is the best team in the world to enhance the AR/VR experience for everyone. He also mentioned how this is his first “real” break in over 20 years and how it’s time for him to recharge, reflect and be creative. Iribe also posted on twitter regarding his decision to leave: A report from Techcrunch indicates that Iribe’s decision to leave wasn’t entirely harmonious. It could be an outcome of Facebook canceling the company’s next-generation “Rift 2” PC-powered virtual reality headset. However, Andrew “Boz” Bosworth, VP, AR/VR at Facebook denied the TechCrunch report as he tweeted: Bosworth also bid goodbye to Brendan on Twitter saying, “You built an incredible team and you defined the first generation of VR. Thank you for entrusting us with this work, Brendan”. Also, Nate Mitchell, co-founder & Head of Rift at Oculus, tweeted out regarding the future of Rift: “Working alongside so many talented people at Oculus and Facebook has been the most transformative experience of my career. The success of Oculus was only possible because of such an extraordinary team effort. I’d like to sincerely thank everyone that’s been a part of this amazing journey, especially Mark for believing in this team and the future of VR and AR”, mentions Iribe.

No need for depositor concern says Spokesman

first_imgDepositors in the Co-op bank should not be concerned, Government Spokesman Prodromos Prodromou said on Sunday.“Deposits, as clarified by the Central Bank, are secure,” he said.Deposits up to €100,000 per individual or legal entity are guaranteed in accordance with a European directive.Under the circumstances, Prodromou said, the government took a difficult but necessary decision, which secures the financial system and preserves the smooth path of the economy and its continuing development.”“The final decision lies with the House of Representatives.“These are certainly not easy decisions but we believe that our country can again show that, as a whole, it can respond correctly”.A government bill to allow it to extend guarantees to Hellenic Bank following its take over of the Co-op to shield it from probable underperformance of assets it agreed to acquire has been met with opposition by opposition parties.The deal, which provides for the transfer of the Co-op’s operations to Hellenic including €9.7bn in deposits is set to spare the Co-op from being liquidated.The implementation of the deal also requires the approval of a byndle of amendments in legislation to help banks reduce their non-performing loans.On Friday parliament rejected a government request to discuss the bills as a matter or urgency, scheduling them instead for next week. The government had submitted the bills on Friday morning and had hoped they would be discussed and passed by the plenum the same day. However, the plenum decided they must first be discussed by the House Finance Committee.On Sunday Akel leader Andros Kyprianou issued a statement outlining his lack of support for the bills. “They have made an illogical deal with Hellenic Bank. They have brought the country to within one footstep of chaos,” he said. Instead of apologising and taking their responsibilities seriously, Kyprianou said the government had “threatened all those who do not support their one-sided decision and tell them they carry the responsibilities for the results of their policies.“We will fight to protect the deposits of people that the government has put in danger.”Prodromou said President Anastasiades and Finance Minister Harris Georgiades will have a meeting on Monday with Diko leader Nicolas Papadopoulos to discuss the entire Co-op package, bills to improve the control of loans and the protection of primary residences.A discussion will be held on some suggestions put forward by Diko, Prodromou said.“The President does not rule out other contacts during the coming days,” Prodromou added.On Friday customers were queuing up to take their money out of the Co-op, with €2 billion having been withdrawn in the first three months of this year and the Cyprus News Agency reporting that €70 million had been taken out by noon on Friday.You May LikeFaresaver.TravelHawaiian Airlines Deals From Only $79.99 One-Way!Faresaver.TravelUndoMiss Penny StocksJoan Collins Lives At Age 85 In A Very Modest HomeMiss Penny StocksUndoMisterStocksThere’s One WD-40 Trick Everyone Must KnowMisterStocksUndo LED-lighting the way by 2020UndoAt least 20 killed, 50 injured in attack on VP candidate’s office in KabulUndoTwo days of music to dance toUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
