UN agency launches free ecourse on causes and characteristics of malnutrition

9 May 2007The causes and nature of malnutrition are the focus of a free e-learning course launched today by the United Nations Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) with the aim of improving the collection, analysis and dissemination of food security information. The three-lesson course, known as “Nutritional Status Assessment and Analysis,” has been produced by FAO in conjunction with the European Commission (EC) and was launched in Rome during the latest meeting of the Committee of World Food Security.Each lesson is designed to be interactive and self-paced, using illustrated step-by-step exercises and instructions to guide the student and drawing on case studies, job aids and methodological guidelines. The course also has resources available for trainers.Other e-learning courses already available include “Reporting Food Security Information” and “Food Security Information Systems and Networks.” A French-language version of each course is expected to be developed soon. read more

Yemen fighting worsening already dire humanitarian situation warns UN official

28 March 2011The top United Nations relief official today called for restraint by all sides in Yemen, warning that the ongoing violence is worsening an already dire humanitarian situation. It is estimated that the recent political turmoil in Yemen, part of a wave of protests across the Middle East and North Africa calling for social, economic and democratic reforms, has led to more than 82 deaths and hundreds of injuries. “I am especially concerned about the humanitarian situation in Yemen because, even before the recent protests, the country was facing a humanitarian crisis due to protracted conflict in the north displacing 300,000 people, some of them multiple times,” said Valerie Amos, the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator. “The recent fighting has again affected hundreds of people that have not recovered from earlier conflict,” she added, urging those involved to refrain from violence and ensure the safety of civilians. According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the country is also facing acute water and food shortages. Some 31.5 per cent of the population is food-insecure, and approximately 12 per cent – or 2.7 million people – are severely food insecure.Ms. Amos noted that some humanitarian agencies are having difficulty reaching those in need due to insecurity. The UN is discussing access with both the Government and the Al-Houthi rebels. “I hope we will have a meaningful agreement on access soon,” she stated. “The prolonged and chronic suffering in the country means that humanitarian aid continues to be urgently needed.”Both Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the UN human rights office have voiced their concern about the situation in Yemen, where a state of emergency has been declared. Mr. Ban has called for a broad dialogue with the political opposition, youth groups and other elements of civil society leading to “bold” reforms in country. read more

Indias economy slows stalling once thriving manufacturing

NEW DELHI — Anuj Kapoor took over his father’s booming auto parts business in 2012, hoping to elevate the company from selling to suppliers to selling directly to carmakers.Seven years later, he’s had to lay off half his workers as drooping sales caused his profit to plummet by at least 80%.Confidence in the Indian economy is giving way to uncertainty as growth in the labour-intensive manufacturing sector has come to a near standstill, braking to 0.6% in the last quarter from 12.1% in the same period a year earlier.The economy grew at its slowest annual pace in six years in April-June, 5%. Many economists believe Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s signature economic policies are at least partly to blame.A surprise demonetization in 2018 and the hasty rollout of a goods and services tax were dire blows to manufacturing, especially the auto industry. The fourth largest in the world, it’s a pillar of the Indian economy, contributing 7.5% to the country’s GDP.The industry employs almost 37 million people and is on its way to shedding as many as a million jobs in the months ahead because of declining sales, according to the Auto Component Manufacturers Association of India.Car deliveries in August dropped 41% from a year earlier, truck and bus sales fell 39% and motorcycle sales, a key indicator of the health of the economy in rural India, sank 22%.“This is a trickle-down impact of the slowdown,” said the association’s director general Vinnie Mehta.No segment of the industry has been spared. India’s biggest carmaker, Maruti, has laid off 3,000 temporary employees and shut down two of its plants for two days.The 15 workers in Kapoor’s plant in a Delhi suburb make clutch buttons used in heavy duty trucks and tractors.The first hit came in November 2016, when Modi decided to pull 86% of cash out of circulation to undermine black markets. At the time, nearly all transactions in India were conducted in cash. Seven months later, Modi’s government introduced a GST, goods and services tax, forcing small businesses like Kapoor’s to quickly digitize their payment systems.Mid-size and small businesses, the backbone of much of India’s economy, are still suffering from the combined consequences of both reforms, economists say.India’s unemployment rate was 3.4% when the GST was introduced in July 2017. As of the end of August, it was 8.4%, according to the Centre for Monitoring the Indian Economy, a Mumbai-based research firm.“The auto components market still functions without any billing system and more than 50% of our market is still cash-driven,” said Kapoor. “How do we file tax returns when sellers don’t give us any bills?”The sudden demonetization was the “biggest policy mistake of independent India,” says Jayati Ghosh, an economist at Jawaharlal Nehru University in Delhi. It drastically reduced consumption — the bedrock of India’s economy — “because people had no cash to pay.”Supply chains, production and job markets were all disrupted, Ghosh said.Measures of consumer confidence have weakened amid growing pessimism over jobs and the economy in general.“Demonetization pulled the rug under the feet of India’s cash economy and the informal sector was the worst hit. The much-hyped reform triggered the current economic slowdown,” said Dr. Pronab Sen, India’s former chief economic adviser and the director of the India program at the London School of Economics’ International Growth Center.Instead of improving government finances, the GST and demonetization have undermined India’s financial stability.To counter that, in August the Reserve Bank of India transferred $24 billion to the cash-starved government to help support stimulus measures, prompting criticism from opposition parties that it compromised the central bank’s autonomy.Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman recently announced piecemeal policy reforms to stimulate the economy.“We are conscious that we need to respond,” she said.Even getting a clear picture of the overall economy is a challenge for policymakers given the huge size of India’s informal economy of day labourers and small businesses.For workers with no guarantee of a paycheque or other protections, the slowdown can mean just going hungry. Such troubles were evident on a recent morning at a worker pickup area about 25 kilometres (15 miles) east of Delhi.Mohammad Shamshad, a day labourer who moved his wife and three children from the northeastern region of Uttar Pradesh to the Delhi region a decade ago, says he used to make nearly $200 a month — enough to feed his family and pay for schooling.Now, he spends more time standing on a corner waiting for jobs than he does working, and averages less than half that amount.“There is work for a day or two, and then nothing for the next five days,” he said. “Some days we have to sleep (on an) empty stomach.”Sheikh Saaliq, The Associated Press read more

3 former Ohio State womens hockey players set for Sochi Winter Olympics

Then-sophomore forward Minttu Tuominen skates off the ice during a game against Wisconsin Jan. 8, 2011, at the OSU Ice Rink. OSU lost, 5-3.Credit: Lantern file photoIn less than a month, eyes will turn toward Sochi, Russia for a few short weeks as the 2014 Winter Olympics captivate the world.Ohio State fans should especially keep their eyes on the women’s ice hockey tournament as three former Buckeyes are slated to compete for gold.Former Buckeye defenseman  Emma Terho (née Laaksonen) and forward Minttu Tuominen are competing for Finland, while Natalie Spooner, who holds the OSU record for goals scored in a career, plays for the Canadian national team.Terho, who is preparing for her fifth Olympics with Finland after winning bronze in 1998 and 2010, said she believes each Olympic Games is different and she is going to enjoy every second this time around.“I think I have learned to enjoy the entire journey leading to the Olympics and learned to live in the moment and that way, I get the most out of it. I’m very excited about the event right now,” Terho said in an email.Named Finland’s Player of the Year in 2002 and 2006, Terho was inducted into the Women’s Varsity “O” Hall of Fame in 2009.Tuominen is set to play in her second straight Olympics and was Terho’s teammate when Finland earned its bronze medal in 2010 in Vancouver, British Columbia.“There’s a fire in me that wants to have that feeling again, winning and holding an Olympic medal. I think that’s the biggest thing,” Tuominen said in an email.Tuominen most recently competed at the Four Nations Cup in November with Terho, in which Finland defeated the U.S. team, a result that has given Finland confidence heading into Sochi.“We have had a great season with the national team … beating the USA in Lake Placid …  we just need to keep playing the way we have and improve from there as the tournament goes on and the stakes get higher,” Tuominen said.Spooner is participating in her first Olympic Games with Canada, who was won the last three gold medals.Despite never appearing in the Olympics with Canada before, Spooner has been involved with Team Canada since 2007. She has played on the Under-18 and Under-22 teams, and she competed in her first International Ice Hockey Federation world championship with the senior team in 2011, which won the silver medal.Also competing at the Four Nations Cup last November, Spooner scored the game-winning goal in a 4-2 victory against the U.S., a performance she said will help her in February.“I guess knowing that I can contribute in big games helps, leading into the Olympics,” Spooner said in an email.With Canada and Finland paired together in Group A alongside the U.S. and Switzerland for the Sochi Games, it won’t take long for Spooner and Tuominen, teammates for three years at OSU, to get reacquainted.Tuominen said she is excited for the game but also knows she has her work cut out for her when Finland plays Canada in the preliminary round Feb. 10.“Natalie is a great person who has worked hard for this,” Tuominen said. “It will be a great challenge to try and keep her from scoring.”In the end, no matter what the final score might read, all three athletes are excited to be a part of such a historic event.“I’m expecting a month of great atmosphere and excellent challenges on the ice,” Terho said. “Hopefully, I can be the best I’ve been and have a great experience with my team.” read more

From prison to the rich list Who is South Africas new president

first_imgFrom prison to the rich list: Who is South Africa’s new president Cyril Ramaphosa? Nelson Mandela once described Ramaphosa as one of the most gifted leaders of the “new generation” of anti-apartheid campaigners. Share18 Tweet Email3 SOUTH AFRICAN LAWMAKERS formally named wealthy former businessman Cyril Ramaphosa as new president today after scandal-tainted Jacob Zuma resigned under intense pressure from his own party.In the course of his 65 years, Ramaphosa has experienced the poverty of Soweto, jail for fighting apartheid, trade union activism, fabulous wealth – and now the ultimate prize of South African politics, the presidency itself.He reached the goal after forcing out Jacob Zuma, a longtime master of political survival, in a strategy that combined long-term vision, stealth and backroom skills.Ramaphosa, the only candidate, was approved without a vote by the parliament in Cape Town, chief justice Mogoeng Mogoeng told assembled lawmakers, to loud cheers. Source: Nasief ManieThat feat, say analysts, bears all the hallmarks of the bald, stocky Ramaphosa – pragmatism, patience and use of the inside track.ActivismHe was born on November 17, 1952 in Johannesburg’s Soweto township – a centre of the anti-apartheid struggle – to a police sergeant and a domestic worker.He took up activism while studying law in the 1970s, and spent 11 months in solitary confinement. Nelson Mandela himself once described Ramaphosa as one of the most gifted leaders of the “new generation” – the young campaigners who filled the void left by their jailed elders.After studying, Ramaphosa turned to trade unionism – one of the few legal ways of protesting against the white-minority regime.He founded the National Union of Mineworkers (NUM) in 1982 which grew to have 300,000 members and led massive strikes in 1987 that shook the foundations of white rule.When Mandela was released in 1990 after 27 years in prison for opposing apartheid, Ramaphosa was by his side and soon rose to wider prominence.

Source: Paul McErlaneHe played a key role in steering the negotiations to a peaceful transition to democracy and then led the group that drew up the country’s new constitution, famed for its pledges to justice and equality.WealthRamaphosa’s destiny seemed pre-ordained. But in 1999, his hopes of winning the top job were dashed when he failed to clinch the nomination of the ruling African National Congress (ANC) to succeed Mandela.True to his practical nature, Ramaphosa bowed out of politics and opted for a life in business.He held stakes in McDonald’s and Coca-Cola’s local ventures and made millions in deals that required investors to partner with non-white shareholders.He became one of the richest men on the continent – reaching number 42 on the Forbes list of Africa’s wealthiest people in 2015 with a net worth of over €380 million.Return to politicsRamaphosa returned to the political fray in 2012 when he was elected to the ANC’s number two post.Two years later, he became deputy president of the nation, but was forced into a careful balancing act.He had both to serve Zuma – tarred by accusations of corruption and incompetence – and also deliver occasional, cautious criticism of his political boss.Ramaphosa was never the target of any graft accusations himself – but his political ambivalence and vast wealth led to criticism.Mmusi Maimane, leader of the main opposition Democratic Alliance party, said Ramaphosa’s acquiescence made him “at best a silent deputy president, and at worst a complicit one”.ScandalIn 2012, his image took a battering when 34 striking mine workers were killed by police at the Marikana platinum mine, operated by London-listed Lonmin, where he was then a non-executive director.Shortly before the massacre – the worst police killing since the end of apartheid – Ramaphosa had called for a crackdown on the strikers, whom he accused of “dastardly criminal” behaviour. The Economic Freedom Fighters (EFF) walked out of parliament today to protest Ramaphosa’s election. Source: Nasief ManieRamaphosa has four children with his second wife Tshepo Motsepe, a doctor, who is the sister of fellow tycoon Patrice Motsepe.He was accused in 2017 of having affairs with several young women, which he denied.Ramaphosa did admit to an extramarital affair but told local media that he had since disclosed the relationship to his wife.Some saw the sudden revelations as a smear campaign by associates of Zuma who feared Ramaphosa’s rise.But the scandal’s impact was brief. As the smell of scandal around Zuma intensified and threatened ANC’s rule in the 2019 elections, Ramaphosa made his tilt for the top job.At an ANC conference last December, he narrowly won against Zuma’s ex-wife Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma as party leader – the stepping stone to the nation’s presidency, which is chosen by the governing party.Critics characterised Dlamini-Zuma as a puppet who would shield Zuma after he left office.Eschewing a frontal attack, Ramaphosa ran his campaign on pledges to fight corruption, rebuild the economy, boost growth and create desperately-needed jobs.“Our ability to overcome these challenges has been undermined over the last decade by a failure of leadership and misguided priorities,” he said. http://jrnl.ie/3853769 14 Comments By AFP Thursday 15 Feb 2018, 3:17 PM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlecenter_img Image: AP/PA Images For the first time since the advent of democracy, there is a real chance that the transformation of our country may suffer significant reverses.‘Inside game’In the following weeks, as Zuma dug in his heels, Ramaphosa rallied support within the ANC, sidelined Zuma’s backers and finally forced the president’s resignation. Zuma reluctantly pronounced his exit yesterday.

Washington state seeks to keep marijuana out of bars

first_imgSEATTLE — Washington Gov. Jay Inslee wants the state Liquor Control Board to figure out how to stop the spread of bars allowing marijuana consumption.The issue became a concern for Inslee after an Associated Press story about two bars, Frankie’s in Olympia and Stonegate in Tacoma, letting patrons use marijuana within their walls.Voters legalized recreational marijuana through Initiative 502. But I-502 prohibits public consumption. “We think the board needs to give this a very hard look,” said Inslee spokesman David Postman. “We will implement the will of the voters and create a well-regulated industry. Washingtonians did not vote for a wide-open policy.”The board is considering its options. However, there’s “a loophole in the law that doesn’t allow the board to hold licensees accountable” for such activity, said board enforcement chief Justin Nordhorn.Sharon Foster, the board’s chairman, said she expects the board to try to come up with a new rule to deal with the situation.last_img read more

President Will Not Shutter Guantánamo Prison Unilaterally Report Says

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR The Obama administration is not planning to close the detention facility at Guantánamo Bay through an executive order, making it extremely unlikely President Obama will be able to fulfill his 2008 campaign pledge to shutter the prison before leaving office.White House officials considered the possibility of breaching Congress’ ban on relocating the facility’s remaining prisoners to the United States, but did not find a robust legal avenue to pursue, a source told Reuters.“It was just deemed too difficult to get through all of the hurdles that they would need to get through, and the level of support they were likely to receive on it was thought to be too low to generate such controversy, particularly at a sensitive [time] in an election cycle,” the source said.While the White House has dropped the idea of shuttering the prison unilaterally, Obama could change his mind. Barring executive action, though, the president would need to convince Congress to overturn its ban on closing the prison in order to fulfill his campaign pledge.The White House probably won’t rule out the use of an executive order publicly so as to keep pressure on DOD to approve the release of prisoners who have been accepted by other countries, according to the story. The number of Guantánamo detainees has fallen to 80 now, the lowest since it was opened.Rep. Lynn Jenkins (R-Kan.), who represents Fort Leavenworth, one of the sites the Pentagon evaluated as a candidate to house the detainees, applauded the report.“Finally, President Obama has abandoned the notion of using an executive order to close the Guantanamo Bay detention center — this type of order would have been illegal and unconstitutional,” Jenkins said in a written statement. “Both the American people and Congress have repeatedly and consistently stated that the detention center should be kept open and must be kept open to protect America’s national security.”last_img read more

Medical imaging plays an increasing role in the accurate… read more “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”—George Santayana, 20th century philosopher and writerScreening programs, like the one in the last century to detect lung cancer, sometimes assume an almost mystical sense of destiny. From the 1950s into the ‘70s, physicians performed chest X-rays and sputum cytology in the mistaken belief that with these technologies they could spot lung cancer at an early and curable stage. It was noble but scientifically flawed, a venture whose soft underbelly was revealed finally by clinical studies in the 1970s.Now American healthcare appears ready to embark on a new kind of lung cancer screening using low-dose computed tomography (LDCT) in place of chest radiography. Some estimates put the number of current and reformed smokers at more than one in three Americans — about 100 million. The actual number who would qualify for screening, however, may be substantially lower. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommended last month LDCT chest scans for adults 55 to 80 who have a “30 pack-year” smoking history within the last 15 years.The USPSTF concluded that the benefit of screening outweighs the costs only for heavy current or recent smokers, defined as those who smoke (or until 15 years ago had smoked) a pack of cigarettes or more a day for 30 years — jargonized as “30 pack-years.” Still the number who might be screened is likely to be significant and remarkably expensive. The Affordable Care Act requires Medicare and private insurers to cover medical exams and procedures receiving a grade of “B” or better from the USPSTF. (Grades “A” and “B” recommend the procedure; “C” recommends it depending on the patient’s situation; “D” is not recommended.) The USPSTF gave LDCT lung screening a “B” as 2013 came to a close. Forty years earlier, it gave chest radiography and sputum cytology a “D”, effectively quashing that effort.The decision in favor of lung cancer LDCT screening was made on the basis of clinical trials published between 2000 and 2013. Among these, the National Lung Screening Trial stood out, “Reduced lung-cancer mortality with low-dose computed tomographic screening,” http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/21714641%20?iframe=true&width=100%&height=100%), demonstrating a 20 percent reduction in lung cancer mortality.With an estimated 160,000 Americans dying each year from the disease, finding a preventive measure to combat lung cancer would seem a good idea. Focusing on heavy smokers makes sense, considering that 85 percent of those who die from lung cancer are cigarette smokers.But a modernized lung cancer screening program may do less than expected. And the costs both financial and medical could be extraordinary.Otis Brawley, M.D., chief medical officer of the American Cancer Society, notes that screening in the trial cut lung cancer deaths by 20 percent. He underscores, however, that the results also mean that 80 percent of lung cancer deaths still occur ( See “Is lung cancer screening right for you?”  http://www.wtnh.com/news/health/is-lung-cancer-screening-right-for-you).The estimated 8,000 to 22,000 lung cancer lives that might be saved through screening will come at a hefty price. Assuming a charge of $1,000 per CT scan, if just 10 percent of the more than 100 million Americans who are believed to have smoked or are now doing so were screened, the effort could cost as much as $10 billion for the initial wave. Repeated screenings would amplify the costs.Then there is the radiation burden. An average low-dose CT at 1.5 mSv is roughly equivalent to 15 chest radiographs. Because dose is cumulative, repetitive screenings will increase dose linearly.Suspicious findings will trigger follow-on testing (higher dose CT, FDG-PET/CT and biopsy), adding to radiation and financial costs for false and true positives alike. Brawley expects that screening will lead to further testing in at least one out of every four. Yet, only four out of every 100 who undergo further tests, he says, will actually have lung cancer.Most troubling, from a psychological perspective, is the possibility that a screening program might enable some smokers to continue their risky behavior as they rationalize lung screening as a way to increase the safety of their habit. How ironic would it be that a program designed to reduce the risk of lung cancer increased it?These possible consequences raise philosophical and operational issues. For example, would the money — conservatively speaking, $10 billion — be better spent on counseling and smoking cessation treatments for at-risk patients? Or, at the very least, should participation in a cessation program be a condition of reimbursement for the screening test? Such a requirement would benefit the patient by promoting preventive care, while curtailing costs over the long-term.Yet there has been no talk of such a precondition.Most sobering is that a screening program will do absolutely nothing to benefit the one in six people with lung cancer who, according to Brawley, are nonsmokers.Before embarking on a new initiative to screen for lung cancer, insurers and regulators would be well advised to look at past efforts aimed at this disease and make sure the program they implement this time will substantially reduce lung cancer mortality and have no significant mitigating consequences; that no other approach would have a greater positive effect; and that the burdens put on the patient and the healthcare system are justified.

What an MLB source said about the Dbacks trade h

first_img What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Top Stories PHOENIX – ESPN analyst Tim Hasselbeck played agent for older brother, Seattle Seahawks quarterback Matt Hasselbeck, on Sports 620 KTAR’s Doug and Wolf show Wednesday.Having been a part of the Cardinals team and playing in the system for a couple weeks back in 2007, Tim Hasselbeck thinks his brother would be an ideal fit for Arizona.He may be biased, but he had strong words regarding the possibility of his brother coming to play in Arizona next season and how it could upgrade the team. “If he had been with the Arizona Cardinals a year ago, where really the biggest question mark was quarterback, they would have won the division,” said Hasselbeck.Critics have pointed to Hasselbeck’s increased interception totals and inability to stay healthy as reasons he’s past his prime.The younger Hasselbeck believes those are just a byproduct of the teams his brother has played on.“That was a bad team he was on in Seattle a year ago. To me you can make the arguement that that should have been a four-win team,” he said.Hasselbeck added his brother has plenty left in the tank.“There’s no doubt he’s still a starting quarterback in the league. There’s plenty of football left in him,” he said.In addition, Tim Hasselbeck sees his brother hanging around the league for some time despite being 35-years-old.“He’s going to play as long as he can. He’s loves playing football,” said Hasselbeck.If the Cardinals don’t end up taking a quarterback in the draft, it would be hard not to argue that Hasselbeck would be an upgrade to anything Arizona currently has on its roster. 0 Comments   Share   center_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’last_img read more
