UN agencies make house calls to vaccinate Afghan newborns

31 May 2007Joining forces with the Afghan Government, two United Nations agencies are conducting their final round of house calls to vaccinate newborns and their mothers against tetanus in the capital, Kabul. The UN World Health Organization (WHO) and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) are also participating in campaigns to immunize children between the ages of 59 months and six years in schools, mosques and other locations. This provides an opportunity for children who rarely visit clinics to receive free vaccinations in community centres. “We want all parents to take part in this valuable vaccination campaign,” said WHO’s Riyad Musa. “We are here to serve the families of our nation’s capital, to ensure the future health of our children, and therefore the future of Afghanistan.” Approximately 3,500 trained vaccinators and volunteers are involved in the campaign, which will continue to furnish vaccinations free of charge at local health clinics beyond this week. Neonatal tetanus can be fatal, and can be contracted if the birth process or the baby’s cord comes into contact with dirt. However, provided the mother has received at least two tetanus vaccinations before or during her pregnancy, her child will not contract it. While people of any age who have not been immunized can contract measles, young children are most at risk. Deaths from measles in Afghanistan have been slashed 90 per cent through two nationwide campaigns from 2001 to 2003 which were supported by WHO, UNICEF and their partners. In a related development, the UN World Food Programme (WFP) said that in spite of obstacles posed by growing insecurity in the south and east of the country, it continues to operate in almost all parts of the war-torn country. Afghanistan poses extreme challenges for WFP, with the effects of two decades of war and unrest being exacerbated by natural disasters, such as floods, harsh winters and severe droughts. In a press release, WFP noted that is has distributed 10,000 metric tons of food for 350,000 people in Kandahar. This year, it plans to provide an additional 20,000 tons to feed 600,000 people, with assistance from the Canadian International Development, the agency’s largest donor in Kandahar. read more

UN human rights chief urges immediate action on Syria as death toll

14 October 2011The UN human rights chief today urged the international community to act immediately to protect lives in Syria, where the number of people killed since violence erupted in March has topped 3,000, including over 180 children. The United Nations human rights chief today urged the international community to act immediately to protect lives in Syria, where the number of people killed since the violence started in March has now exceeded 3,000, including over 180 children. “Since the start of the uprising in Syria, the Government has consistently used excessive force to crush peaceful protests,” High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay said in a news release. “Sniping from rooftops, and indiscriminate use of force against peaceful protestors – including the use of live ammunition and the shelling of residential neighbourhoods – have become routine occurrences in many Syrian cities.”This has resulted in a “devastatingly remorseless toll of human lives,” she added, noting that more than 3,000 people have been killed since the Government began its crackdown on pro-democracy protesters in March, including at least 187 children. More than 100 people have been reported killed in the last 10 days alone.In addition, thousands have been arrested, detained, forcibly disappeared and tortured, the High Commissioner said. “Family members inside and outside the country have been targeted for harassment, intimidation, threats and beatings. As more members of the military refuse to attack civilians and change sides, the crisis is already showing worrying signs of descending into an armed struggle.”Stating that the Syrian Government has “manifestly failed to protect its population,” Ms. Pillay urged the international community to act before more lives are lost. “The onus is on all members of the international community to take protective action in a collective and decisive manner, before the continual ruthless repression and killings drive the country into a full-blown civil war,” she stated.“The international community must speak with one voice and act to protect the Syrian people.”In August, the High Commissioner drew attention to credible allegations of crimes against humanity in Syria, and encouraged the Security Council to refer the situation in the country to the International Criminal Court (ICC).Earlier this month, China and Russia vetoed a draft Security Council resolution that would have strongly condemned Syrian authorities for their violent crackdown against pro-democracy protesters and called for an immediate end to human rights abuses. read more

DR of Congo UN panel on illegal exploitation of resources gets new

In adopting resolution 1457, the Council asked the panel to recommend measures that could be taken to ensure that the DRC’s resources are legally extracted, on a fair commercial basis to benefit the Congolese people. The panel was also asked to review and analyze previous information in order to verify, reinforce and update its findings, and/or clear parties named in its previous reports, with a view to adjusting the lists of those involved in illegal activities. The panel should also include information about steps taken by governments in response to its previous recommendations, including information on how capacity building and reforms in the region are affecting exploitation activities. In the panel’s last report, released in October 2002, the experts said that a ban on the export of raw materials originating from the DRC would be counterproductive, and recommended that punitive measures be taken to curb the illegal exploitation of the country’s natural resources by criminal organizations and persons. The experts also suggested that financial restrictions be placed on 29 companies based in the DRC, Belgium, Rwanda, Uganda, Zimbabwe and South Africa, and that a travel ban and financial restrictions be imposed on 54 persons, including senior officials in the DRC, Zimbabwe and other countries in the region. read more

Buckeye looks to rebound after missing season with injury

In the first week of last year’s season, the Ohio State women’s lacross team lost their leading goal-scorer to a torn anterior cruciate ligament. Brittney Zerhusen was looking to improve upon a great sophomore season, but with a torn ACL those hopes ended. In her sophomore season she started all 18 games and recorded 36 goals.Zerhusen had her knee medically repaired and went through intensive rehab.The hardest thing for Zerhusen was getting back in shape. For three months she was unable to run or make any cuts.“It had been eight months [after the surgery] before I could play with the team,” Zerhusen said. She went on to say at first that she was very nervous when running full speed and making cuts.After playing with the team for a little bit, Zerhusen said she was able to play without thinking about her knee and if it would hold up.Women’s lacrosse trainer Kristen Bretz said Zerhusen was able to get back to being healthy because of her work ethic. Bretz said Zerhusen was a little ahead of schedule and now her knee is 100 percent healthy. “She did a great job rehabbing,” coach Sue Stimmel said.Zerhusen said it was bittersweet because she wasn’t able to play, but she was able to see the team do well. Although Zerhusen wasn’t able to play, she said she did benefit from her injury. “You’re always upset when someone gets hurt but it can be a great learning experience,” Stimmel said. She added that Zerhusen learned as much from watching as she would have learned from playing.Stimmel called Zerhusen’s injury “crushing” because they weren’t sure how they would do without their leading scorer. The Buckeyes went on without Zerhusen and had others step up and lead the team.Getting Zerhusen back will be an added weapon to the already loaded team. In the past two years the Buckeyes have had the American Lacrosse Conference Rookie of the Year.In the 2008-2009 campaign, Kelly Haggerty was a Tewaaraton Award semifinalist.Haggerty was fourth in points and seventh in overall scoring in the NCAA.“I think we will do outstanding with the depth that we have,” Zerhusen said. read more

Stem cell treatment offers new hope for multiple sclerosis patients

first_img 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. Prof John Snowden, director of blood and bone marrow transplantation at Sheffield’s Royal Hallamshire Hospital, told the BBC: “We are thrilled with the results – they are a game changer for patients with drug resistant and disabling multiple sclerosis.”The results were released at the annual meeting of the European Society for Bone and Marrow Transplantation in Lisbon.The process involves patients’ faulty immune systems being destroyed using chemotherapy, and then stem cells are taken from the patient’s blood and bone marrow before being re-infused. These are unaffected by MS and they rebuild the immune system.The transplant costs around £30,000, about the same as the annual price of some MS drugs. As for those who were given drug treatment, 39 of the 50 had a relapse within a year. Over the same three-year period, the treatment failed altogether for 30 of them – or 60 per cent.Additionally, those who had transplants experienced a reduction in their disability. Of 52 patients, only six suffered a relapse in three years with the new treatment Of 52 patients, only six suffered a relapse in three years with the new treatment In the trial, more than 100 patients from hospitals in Chicago, Sheffield, Stockholm and Sao Paolo, were treated with either haematopoietic stem cell transplantation (HSCT) or conventional drugs. They all had a type of relapsing remitting MS – in which attacks are punctuated by periods of remission.After a year, just one relapse occurred among the 52 patients who had stem cell treatment and, after an average follow up of three years, the transplant treatment had failed for just three of them – about six per cent. Doctors on Sunday hailed what they say is a major breakthrough in the treatment of multiple sclerosis, halting progress of the disease and relieving symptoms in some patients.An international trial also found that the stem cell transplant treatment could reduce disability for people with MS, according to the BBC.The disease, which attacks nerves in the brain and spinal cord and affects people’s immune systems, leads to fatigue, muscle and mobility problems, as well as a range of other disabilities.But now a new stem cell treatment is being called a “game changer” as it involves wiping out a patient’s immune system using cancer drugs and then rebooting it with a stem cell transplant.Louise Willetts, 36, a patient from Rotherham, is free of symptoms for the first time since being diagnosed with the disease in 2010. She told the BBC: “It feels like a miracle.”last_img read more

Une bouée intelligente pour étudier les milieux marins

first_imgUne bouée intelligente pour étudier les milieux marinsUn projet de bouée “intelligente” pourrait permettre de mieux évaluer les populations d’oiseaux, de chauves-souris ou de cétacés fréquentant une zone donnée en mer. Grâce à ces données, il serait possible de mesurer l’impact que pourrait avoir un futur parc éolien offshore.Une bouée “intelligente”, véritable station flottante est en train d’être mise au point. Dotée d’instruments de pointe, elle permettra de fournir des données jusqu’ici difficilement et incomplètement recueillies au large des côtes. Ce nouvel outil vise à répondre à la nécessité de toujours mieux connaître la qualité écologique du milieu marin en raison des projets de plus en plus nombreux de parcs éoliens offshore, mais aussi de la mise en protection de certaines zones à travers les projets d’aires marines protégées (AMP), indique l’AFP.À lire aussiDengue : symptômes, traitement, prévention, où en est-on ?Le programme, baptisé Simeo et développé par le bureau d’étude Biotope avec l’Ifremer et l’Institut de recherche pour le développement (IRD) débute aujourd’hui. Les premiers prototypes, équipés d’un radar (un sondeur capable de détecter les mouvements dans les airs et sous l’eau), de caméras, d’enregistreurs audio capables d’identifier les espèces et de sondes pour mesurer la température et la salinité de l’eau pourraient être testés en Méditerranée et au large de la Bretagne en 2013. De plus, adaptées à tous les types de mer et de fonds marins (exceptés les pôles), ces bouées seront énergétiquement autonomes.Dans le cas de l’éolien, les projets offshores nécessitent notamment en amont des études d’impact sur l’environnement, rappelle le bureau d’étude Biotope. Aussi, cette bouée constituerait une alternative à l’utilisation d’avions et de bateaux pour permettre aux scientifiques d’évaluer les populations d’oiseaux et de poissons, souligne Erwan Roussel, ingénieur de recherche pour Biotope. “Les données seront récupérées par la station et envoyées à terre en temps quasi-réel sans que les scientifiques n’aient à se déplacer en mer”. De nombreuses données seront ainsi “inédites”.Le 7 février 2012 à 14:29 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

USChina Trade War Fears Send Global Stock Markets Tumbling

first_img Share Koji Sasahara/APA man walks by an electronic stock board of a securities firm in Tokyo, on Friday. Asian stock markets slumped after Beijing responded to the Trump administration’s tariff hikes by saying it may order higher import duties on a range of U.S. goods.Updated at 4:54 p.m. ETMajor stock indexes around the world fell Friday amid continuing worries that the U.S. and China are about to enter into a trade war. The Dow Jones industrial average fell an additional 424 points, or about 1.8 percent, to 23,533, for a two-day drop totaling more than 1,100 points.Stock indexes from New York to Tokyo fell as the White House prepared to impose stiff tariffs on Chinese imports. The Chinese government announced a list of retaliatory tariffs it would impose on about $3 billion worth of U.S. exports, in response to new U.S. tariffs on steel and aluminum imports.The S&P 500 fell 55 points, or 2.1 percent, and the Nasdaq dropped 174 points, or 2.4 percent.“Investors are rattled about the economic and inflation impacts of tariffs and a potential trade war,” said Greg McBride, Bankrate.com’s chief financial analyst. “This nine-year bull market has been sustained by a growing economy in a low-inflation, low-interest-rate world. Now those conditions are called into question.”Earlier this week, the Federal Reserve announced a quarter-point increase in interest rates — its sixth hike since December 2015 after keeping rates at near zero for seven years.In earlier trading in Asia on Friday:— Japan’s Nikkei stock index 225 lost 4.5 percent.— The Shanghai Composite Index was off nearly 3.4 percent.— Hong Kong’s Hang Seng lost 2.45 percent.In Europe, London’s FTSE 100 fell about 0.4 percent, the German DAX dropped 1.8 percent and the French CAC index was down 1.4 percent.“This can turn ugly on a global scale very quickly,” Robert Carnell, chief economist at ING Asia Pacific, was quoted in The Financial Times as saying of the market fluctuations.“If the tariffs go ahead as planned, then we believe China will retaliate,” Carnell said. “It is impossible to imagine that they cannot. And then we expect the U.S. to retaliate further.”The newspaper quoted ANZ economists Raymond Yeung and Daniel Wilson as saying: “Although the face value of the U.S. tariff will be small, President Trump may push other countries to take sides, resulting in a divided world. The scale of the trade war would be broadened. This is the biggest risk lying ahead.”However, not everyone was convinced that the sell-off was directly related to newly restrictive U.S. trade policies.CNBC writes:“Analysts at Swiss bank UBS on Friday said it was important not to overstate the direct impact of these tariffs on the global economy or equity markets at this stage.” ‘We don’t downplay the potential risks. This latest action is likely to have a negative effect on Asian exports, which are currently growing at 12-13 percent a year,’ the analysts said in a note.”Daniel Lockyer, a senior fund manager at Hawksmoor Investment Management, is quoted by Reuters as saying that some felt the sell-off in stock markets was long overdue.“It could have been anything that caused it; it just happened to be trade,” he told the news agency.Copyright 2018 NPR.

Judy Garland was Called a Pig in Pigtails and Forced to Starve

first_imgWe’ll always remember Judy Garland as the beautiful, round-faced Dorothy Gale in the 1939 film, the Wizard of Oz. Her astounding performance has been preserved in the minds and hearts of millions of people throughout generations, making the Wizard of Oz a household classic. But behind the cheerful facade lies an odd juxtaposition — a heartbreaking story of abuse that would change the course of Garland’s life. At the ripe age of 13, Garland tried her luck when she auditioned in front of Louis B. Mayer of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer or MGM.Garland won the role of Dorothy despite substantial competitionThe film producer was astounded by her soothing, silky, powerful voice and decided to cast her without trying to put her in for a screen test first. Although that didn’t mean he didn’t care about her looks, which he would make apparent over years of abuse and horrific trauma that he would impose on the young hopeful.AdChoices广告inRead invented by TeadsThe Gumm Sisters, also known as the Garland Sisters, c. 1935: Top row: Mary Jane and Dorothy Virginia Gumm; bottom: Frances Ethel (Judy Garland) GummGarland was cast in her first film in 1936 when she was only 14 years old. During the production of Pigskin Parade, Mayer and his fellow producers didn’t shy away from telling Garland how she looked like “a pig in pigtails” when they viewed her through cameras. It was then that they put her on a strict diet, restricting her calorie intake to near starvation.The young girl who had only just entered her teens would then soon start her habits of starving herself and then bingeing as she tried to satisfy the hungry producers who had unrealistic standards for her.Judy Garland and Mickey Rooney in ‘Love Finds Andy Hardy’ (1938)The harsh treatment would soon spread throughout production. In 1938, even managers would pass notes among themselves about Garland’s eating habits and figure. According to The Independent, a director who worked closely with Garland called her the “ugly duckling” of the industry simply because she looked a little different compared to other actresses her age.Related Video: Quotes From Legends Of Hollywood’s Leading LadiesThey would use this to treat her harshly. She would be presented food which would be taken away before she could have a bite, they would put her on a variety of drugs to speed her up or slow her down, and they even put her through obscene sexual abuse at the young age of just 16 years.Billie Burke as Glinda, the Good Witch of the North and Judy Garland as Dorothy Gale in ‘The Wizard of Oz’According to Gerald Clarke — author of Garland’s biography — the young star was subjected to sexual harassment during her time with MGM. In her unfinished memoir, she wrote: “Don’t think they all didn’t try.”This went on for years until finally, the young actress put her foot down and quit — a decision that sent Louis Mayer to tears, claiming that he had fallen in love with the star.Press photo of Louis B. Mayer and Mrs. Lorena Danker shortly after their marriageEven in her personal life, the effects of abuse would leave their mark. Judy Garland married five times — four of which ended in divorce. During her first marriage, she became pregnant. However because of how it might affect her image, MGM and her mother decided to have the baby aborted, according to Vanity Fair.The procedure was kept hush because it was widely illegal during the time. Garland was said to have suffered severe mental and emotional trauma because of it.Cropped screenshot of Judy Garland from the trailer for the film ‘Meet Me in St. Louis’Unfortunately, the years of abuse had left a lasting mark on Garland. Even in her adulthood, drug abuse had become a major aspect of her life which ultimately caused her demise. According to The New Yorker, Judy Garland would find herself in and out of mental institutions after having mental breakdown after mental breakdown on top of her several suicide attempts.Promotional image for ‘Presenting Lily Mars’ (1943)By the time she reached the twilight years of her life, her daughter described her to be “homeless broke” according to a report issued by The List. Liza Minnelli, her oldest daughter, would help her through the financial turmoil. Rightly so, as Garland had only been making $100 dollars a night, singing in dingy bars a few nights a week.Her untimely death rolled around when she had accidentally overdosed on barbituates — an addiction she developed thanks to her years in the industry.Read another story from us: The Political and Economic Symbols Hidden Inside the Wizard of OzDespite her tragic end, the Los Angeles Times had recorded her claiming how happy she was just three months prior when she married her fifth husband. “Finally, finally — I am loved,” the star beamed.

GitHub open sources its GitHub Load Balancer GLB Director

first_imgGitHub, open sourced the GitHub Load Balancer (GLB) Director on August 8, 2018. GLB Director is a Layer 4 load balancer which scales a single IP address across a large number of physical machines. It also minimizes connection disruption during any change in servers. Apart from open sourcing the GLB Director, GitHub has also shared details on the Load balancer design. GitHub had first released its GLB on September 22, 2016. The GLB is GitHub’s scalable load balancing solution for bare metal data centers. It powers a majority of GitHub’s public web and Git traffic, and GitHub’s critical internal systems such as its highly available MySQL clusters. How GitHub Load Balancer Director works GLB Director is designed for use in data center environments where multiple servers can announce the same IP address via BGP. Further, the network routers shard traffic amongst those servers using ECMP routing. The ECMP shards connections per-flow using consistent hashing and by addition or removal of nodes. This will cause some disruption to traffic as the state isn’t stored for each flow. A split L4/L7 design is typically used to allow the L4 servers to redistribute these flows back to a consistent server in a flow-aware manner. GLB Director implements the L4 (director) tier of a split L4/L7 load balancer design. The GLB design The GLB Director does not replace services like haproxy and nginx, but rather is a layer in front of these services (or any TCP service) that allows them to scale across multiple physical machines without requiring each machine to have unique IP addresses. Source: GitHub GLB Director only processes packets on ingress. It then encapsulates them inside an extended Generic UDP Encapsulation packet. Egress packets from proxy layer servers are sent directly to clients using Direct Server Return. Read more about the GLB Director in detail on the GitHub Engineering blog post.

first_imgPrime Minister of Solomon Islands Manasseh Sogavare has officially launched a key National Tourism Development Strategy (SINTDS), which is funded by the South Pacific Tourism Organisation and the European Union, to see tourism become a major economic contributor within the next five years.The strategy sets out the Solomon Islands government’s commitment to developing the country into a unique tourist destination within the five year timeframe, a key tenet of which is to increase tourism sector development and encourage international visitor growth.The Prime Minister cautioned that even with relatively modest growth at the levels proposed in the SINTDS – a nine percent growth within the next five years – achieving targets will require sustained commitment to the strategy backed by strong leadership, increased investment and additional government and donor resourcing.Solomon Islands Visitors Bureau CEO, Josefa ‘Jo’ Tuamoto has played a key role in helping shape the SINTDS in tandem with his Department of Tourism counterparts headed by Director of Tourism, Barney Sivoro.“Given the Solomon Islands’ traditional sources of wealth are now well into ‘sunset’ mode, tourism growth has become a priority area for the economic and social well-being of the country,” Tuamoto said.“For us as industry players, having the government make this major commitment to tourism tell us where we want to go…The SINTDS has been extremely well researched with key drivers identified. It is now time for the Solomon Islands to take the next step and make those aspirations a reality.”last_img read more
