Ban applauds Rotary for antipolio campaign urges donors to end disease

21 June 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon called for a final push to eradicate polio worldwide, while paying tribute to Rotary International on Sunday for its tireless work in helping to stamp out the crippling disease. Mr. Ban noted that when Rotary International launched its PolioPlus campaign in 1985, more than 125 countries suffered from polio endemic, and at least a thousand children were paralyzed every day.Since then “millions of Rotarians have devoted endless volunteer hours in their quest to reach and vaccinate every child all over the world,” he said in a keynote address to the organization’s convention in Birmingham, United Kingdom.The Secretary-General said that in the face of “funding shortfalls, cultural barriers, lack of political will, even risks to your personal security” Rotarians have raised over $250 million to fund the fight against the spread of polio.“You have met with everyone from village elders to presidents to get their support … met with religious leaders to gain their confidence … inspired business leaders to reach into their pockets and to speak up for this cause in the corridors of power,” he said.As a result more than two billion children have been immunized and over five million children who otherwise would have been paralyzed are walking, said Mr. Ban. “There are now only four countries that are still polio endemic.” Polio is widespread in Afghanistan, India, Nigeria and Pakistan. “Now is the time to finish the job,” said Mr. Ban, urging donor governments to help create a polio-free future.At a time of global economic recession, the “choice is clear,” he said. “We can cut back on health expenditures and incur massive losses in lives and capacity for growth. Or we can invest in health and spare both people and economies the high cost of inaction.”Mr. Ban dedicated the Polio Eradication Champion Award he received from Rotary International today to three polio workers who were killed last year in Afghanistan. “They were on their way to prepare for a vaccination drive when their convoy was ambushed by a suicide bomber,” he said of Mamoon Taher Taheri, ShamsulHaq Kakar and Azizullah Almas. read more

UN atomic agency to hold further discussions with Iran over nuclear programme

1 February 2012Experts from the United Nations atomic energy watchdog have wrapped up their visit to Iran, saying they will continue to hold discussions later this month over concerns about the country’s nuclear programme. The experts, from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), met with Iranian officials in the country’s capital, Tehran, from Sunday to Tuesday in an effort to resolve outstanding substantive issues. Another meeting will now be held in Tehran on 21-22 February, according to an IAEA statement.The IAEA delegation also discussed with Iranian officials the initial steps that need to be taken by the country.“The agency is committed to intensifying dialogue. It remains essential to make progress on substantive issues,” said Yukiya Amano, the IAEA Director General.The statement noted that the experts had explained their concerns and identified priorities, which focus on the clarification of possible military dimensions to Iran’s nuclear programme.Iran has repeatedly stated that its nuclear programme is for the peaceful purpose of providing energy, but some countries contend it is seeking to develop nuclear weapons. The Security Council has imposed four rounds of sanctions against Iran, citing the proliferation risks of its nuclear programme and its continued failure to cooperate with the IAEA. read more

Ohio State terminates Jim Foster without cause

Former Ohio State women’s basketball coach Jim Foster was terminated from his post without cause. In a comment to The Lantern, OSU athletics director for legal affairs Julie Vannatta confirmed the nature of Foster’s departure from the university, which previously had not been made clear. The former Buckeyes coach of 11 years was fired and will now receive installment payments that could amount to as much as $350,000. “Coach Foster has been terminated without cause. Under his employment contract, he is entitled to receive $350,000 in installment payments beginning on June 30, 2013, and concluding by April 30, 2014,” Vannatta told The Lantern. “Under his employment contract, he is required to make reasonable and diligent efforts to find a comparable employment position. If he chooses to retire from OPERS, rather than obtaining a new job, any retirement benefits he receives will be used to off-set the University’s obligation to pay him $350,000.” A Tuesday morning meeting with OSU athletic director Gene Smith and executive associate athletic director Miechelle Willis resulted in a split between OSU and Foster, a four-time Big Ten Coach of the Year Award winner. During his time as coach at the Schottenstein Center, the Cheltenham, Pa., native amassed a 279-82 record and a .772 winning percentage. The postseason was not kind to Foster, however – he posted a 10-10 record in NCAA Tournament play while at OSU and his Buckeyes teams were eliminated in either the first of second rounds of the Tournament during seven of 10 postseason runs. A lack of sustained postseason success in the NCAA Tournament factored into the decision, Willis said. “We strive to be nationally competitive. We believe that we have everything in place here to be nationally competitive. We believe that means that we should be playing deep into (the) postseason,” Willis said. “We expect to be in the Final Four on occasion, and definitely the Sweet 16 and Elite Eight are expectations that we have.” OSU advanced as far as the Sweet 16-round three times (2004-05, 2008-09 and 2010-11), but no further. A second-round exit in the Big Ten Tournament marked the end of the Buckeyes’ 2012-13 season. After posting an 18-13 mark this year, OSU did not receive an at-large bid to the NCAA Tournament. The team then decided it would not accept a bid from the Women’s National Invitation Tournament. Had OSU advanced to the NCAA Tournament this season and been eliminated in the early rounds of the competition, Willis said on Tuesday that the end of Foster’s career at OSU was still possible. Willis said on Tuesday that OSU will immediately begin a national search for its next coach. The search will include coaches that are currently coaching in the postseason. “Our search will unfold as the postseason unfolds,” said Willis, who added that OSU would not reach out to coaches at other universities until their respective team’s postseason run was over. read more

Space Flight Events to Watch in 2019

first_img NASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This WeekendHubble Captures Saturn’s ‘Phonograph Record’ Ring System Just last week, the first ever lander deployed to the far side of Earth’s moon touched down. China’s Chang’e 4 rover is the first of its kind and represents just the first of a series of incredible milestones that we’re likely to see this year. But, because space is, quite famously, really damned hard, some of these missions may not quite make it. But from what we can tell, this is what we can expect in 2019. Later this month, SpaceX will be running the Dragon 2 spacecraft on its first major test flight. Crewed flights will be later this year, but for now, SpaceX is just hoping to get it human-rated by proving the craft’s spaceworthiness.Following that will be in the Indian Chandrayaan-2, the first lander that will survey the moon’s South Pole — a site that may contain lots more water for future human colonization efforts. It’s worth noting that this craft’s predecessor, Chandrayaan-1 actually recorded the data that was just recently shown by researchers to demonstrate the presence of water on the surface. So, look forward to that for sure.Next-up is NASA’s InSight lander. It touched down at the tail end of last year, but during the next few weeks, the craft will be driving sensors several meters into the ground to take the first proper geological readings.Also in February, SpaceX plans to deliver the first private lunar craft to the moon. Developed by the Israeli company SpaceIL, the craft was originally meant to cinch the Lunar XPRIZE. The contest was canceled by Google a few months ago, but SpaceIL still hopes that this mission will be a history maker regardless. And, they’ve already come this far, right?Also, Hayabusa 2, Japan’s asteroid explorer will drop down to the surface of the Ryugu asteroid to collect samples and then begin a return trip later in the year. The second-ever launch of the Falcon Heavy rocket, the wondrous behemoth that we covered near the beginning of 2018 will likely be in March. It’s expected to be a comparatively uneventful launch, besides the fact that all eyes will be looking to see that SpaceX can, once again, put a big-ass cargo load into space.Boeing’s CST-100 Starliner spacecraft will also have an uncrewed test flight in March, if all goes to plan. Skipping to May, Richard Branson’s Virgin Orbit hopes to get its first space launch. But that should be it unless SpaceX can manage to get a third Falcon Heavy ready to launch a bevy of satellites for NASA in the first half of the year.Shortly thereafter, though, in June, SpaceX will ideally be running their first crewed flights of the Dragon 2. The launch would be huge for a variety of reasons, but not least of which being that it’ll be the first crewed launch from the US since the cessation of Space Shuttle program eight years ago. Originally, we were hoping to see the launch of the James Webb Space Telescope, Hubble’s next-gen successor this year. And, as far as science goes, that will probably be the event of the year to watch — particularly given how critical to the field of astronomy Hubble has been. But with that, there are only two other big missions scheduled this year: OSIRIS-Rex and Chang’e 5. Both of which are sample returns.OSIRIS-Rex is a NASA probe currently excavating the surface of the asteroid Bennu. By September, it’s hoped that this probe will be on the route back to Earth so that we may study whatever it collects. China is also planning a sample return mission — the Chang’e 5. Hot off the success of their prior launch, China is hoping to cement itself as a moon-capable nation and commence the first sample return mission since the cold war. While there’s a few other launches scheduled throughout the year, these are the big ones. And they point to an increasingly diverse array of nations and companies that are capable of spaceflight of all kinds. It’s a shame that some of the major missions — namely James Webb — have been bumped, but it should be an exciting time to be a fan of rocket science.  More on Incredible Images of Earth’s Mountains and Volcanoes from SpaceNASA Chooses Landing Site for Mars 2020 Rover Mission40 Stunning Images of the Surface of Mars Stay on targetlast_img read more

Oregon appeals board hears arguments in CRC challenge

first_imgLawyers on both sides of a legal challenge hoping to derail the Columbia River Crossing made their case to the Oregon Land Use Board of Appeals on Thursday morning.A group of Oregon neighborhood and business organizations last month challenged the Metro Council’s decision to give its thumbs up to light rail and freeway improvements planned as part of a new Interstate 5 bridge. The Metro Council, which leads the Portland area regional government, approved a Land Use Final Order by a 6-1 vote.Petitioners who took issue with the action argued that Oregon’s Land Use Final Order law was crafted in the 1990s for a specific light-rail project, and never meant to apply to a project as expansive as the more than $3 billion CRC. Metro representatives have countered by arguing that the law’s language is much more broad than that, and past light-rail projects have included highway improvements, as the CRC does.Opponents have also claimed that neighbors’ concerns of traffic, pollution and construction impacts have not been adequately addressed in the planning process. Metro has argued that it’s taken every step necessary to identify those impacts and look for ways to limit them.The joint legal challenge was brought by several Portland-area neighborhood and business groups: the Northeast Coalition of Neighborhoods, the Coalition for a Livable Future, Weber Coastal Bells, Plaid Pantries and Jantzen/Angel LLC.last_img read more

Buddy Bench Installed At Shawsheen Elementary School

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — At a recent School Committee Meeting, Shawsheen Elementary School Principal Lisa King announced the installation of a “Buddy Bench” at her school.Students utilize the bench during recess when they are having difficulty finding a friend or group to play with. If a child is seen sitting alone on the bench, classmates are trained to approach the child and ask him or her to play.King introduced the three students — Julianna, Liam and Craig — who wrote letters to the school’s guidance counselor, asking for such a bench. The students read their letters to the School Committee.“Mrs. Gibbs, out Guidance Counselor, worked all summer to make this happen,” King told the Committee.King also thanked the Wilmington Educational Foundation and the Cottini Family for funding the project, and Wilmington DPW for installing the bench.The school’s Technology Integration Specialist, Kim Provensal, worked with students to create a video highlighting the five rules surrounding the use of the bench. All students watched the video during a recent school-wide assembly.The video was screened for the Committee and can be viewed HERE. (The required password is 0302.)“In second grade, these young leaders came up with the idea,” said King. “In third grade, they helped create the video.”“Thank you for sharing your letters and your video,” responded School Committee Chair Julie Broussard.A Buddy Bench was also installed at the Boutwell Early Childhood Center at the end of last school year.(NOTE: Cover photo of bench is from Provensal’s Twitter account.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

PostMugabe presidential race in Zimbabwe on July 30

first_imgA Zimbabwe Electoral Commissioon (ZEC) official files through the voters roll at an inspection centre in Harare, ahead of Zimbabwe election. Photo: AFPZimbabwe announced on Wednesday it would choose a new president and parliament on 30 July, in the country’s first electoral test since the removal of its autocratic former leader Robert Mugabe.His successor, President Emmerson Mnangagwa, unveiled the date in the official Zimbabwe Government Gazette.”Monday, the 30th day of July, 2018 (is) the day of the election to the office of President, the election of members of the National Assembly and election of councillors,” Mnangagwa said in a proclamation.Once a right-hand man to the 94-year-old Mugabe, Mnangagwa dramatically succeeded the veteran leader in November after nearly four-decades in charge when troops swarmed the streets and briefly seized key sites.Mnangagwa, 75, will square off against the main opposition Movement for Democratic Change (MDC) party, now led by 40-year-old Nelson Chamisa following the death of Morgan Tsvangirai in February.If no candidate receives a simple majority in the first round of the presidential election, a run-off will be held on 8 September.Elections under Mugabe were marred by corruption, intimidation and violence, but Mnangagwa has vowed to hold a free and fair vote.The election will be the first to be monitored by Western observers in many years.On Monday Harare and the European Union announced that observers from the bloc would monitor polls in the southern African country for the first time in 16 years.- Western observers -The head of the last EU observer mission, Pierre Schori, was thrown out of Zimbabwe in 2002 on the eve of presidential elections that were condemned as flawed.Following the high-profile spat, Zimbabwe barred the EU and other Western observers from sending further missions to monitor polls in the country as Mugabe grew more and more defiant of foreign criticism up until his downfall.And in a further sign of Zimbabwe’s growing efforts to mend fences with former foes following Mugabe’s resignation, the country has applied to re-join the Commonwealth, the bloc of former British colonies said Monday.Harare’s membership was suspended in 2003 over the violent and graft-ridden elections the previous year.Zimbabwe left the Commonwealth at the height of violent land seizures, when white farmers were evicted in favour of landless black people — a policy that wrecked agriculture and triggered economic collapse.Commonwealth Secretary-General Patricia Scotland confirmed that the organisation would also send observers to the elections.Mugabe sent shockwaves through the ruling ZANU-PF, the party he dominated for decades, when he recently posed with a retired general who will take on the government in this year’s election.Despite a slew of reformist pledges and announcements it is unclear whether Mnangagwa, who was a vital cog in the ZANU-PF party and helped Mugabe to hold onto power for 37 years, has won the support of ordinary Zimbabweans.last_img read more

WHO Adds Gaming Disorder To List of Official Diseases

first_img ‘Gaming Disorder’ is Real Mental Condition, And You May Have It Stay on target Don’t be so quick to dismiss a loved one’s Fortnight obsession.The World Health Organization last week adopted the latest revision of its International Classification of Diseases (ICD)—including “gaming disorder.”Characterized by WHO as “a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behavior,” the malady is as real as any addiction (think gambling, drugs, alcohol, nicotine). The formal description, as published early this year in a beta draft of the ICD:Gaming disorder is characterized by a pattern of persistent or recurrent gaming behavior (‘digital gaming’ or ‘video gaming’), which may be online (i.e. over the Internet) or offline, manifested by:1) impaired control over gaming (e.g. onset, frequency, intensity, duration, termination, context)2) increasing priority given to gaming to the extent that gaming takes precedence over other life interests and daily activities3) continuation or escalation of gaming despite the occurrence of negative consequences.The behavior pattern is of sufficient severity to result in significant impairment in personal, family, social, educational, occupational, or other important areas of functioning. The pattern of gaming behavior may be continuous or episodic and recurrent.The gaming behavior and other features are normally evident over a period of at least 12 months in order for a diagnosis to be assigned, although the required duration may be shortened if all diagnostic requirements are met and symptoms are severe.“There is increasing and well-documented evidence of clinical relevance of these conditions and increasing demand for treatment in different parts of the world,” a WHO spokesman said in January.Health problems as a result of excessive use have also been documented, sometimes with grave consequences.The inclusion of “gaming disorder” in ICD—used to diagnose and categorize conditions—is not a quick fix for those suffering. It merely means their ailment has an official name and may be taken slightly more seriously by medical practitioners.This issue, as CNET pointed out, is not new: Gaming addiction is still “up for discussion” by the American Psychiatric Association. The American Medical Association, meanwhile, backed away from “video game addiction” in 2007.More on This U.S. Senator’s Bill Finally Kill Video Game Loot Boxes?Playdate Is a New Video Game Handheld With a CrankHere Are the Top U.S. Gaming Platforms in Every Statelast_img read more

MovieBob Reviews Happy Death Day 2U

first_imgStay on target Happy Death Day was a revelation back in 2016: “Groundhog Day as a slasher movie” was a fantastic idea that somehow no one had done before, they really hit it out of the park, and (with Blumhouse behind the film), it got a deservedly hard push and audiences responded; a great, fresh, new horror movie actually broke through theatrically and connected with an audience — do you believe in miracles?The secret, of course, was that much like Groundhog Day itself there was, in fact, an actual movie with real depth and character smuggled in underneath the obviously-fun spectacle of watching an engaging (but not necessarily all that “likable”) character die multiple slapstick deaths and also eventually attain valuable life skills and enlightenment through cleverly-directed repetition-of-events gags. Making main character Tree Gelbman not a typically virtuous slasher-movie “final girl” but instead (initially) the kind of self-involved, casually-unkind, mean-girl type that horror films usually encourage audiences to root for the painful demise of was a great inversion of the trope and star Jessica Rothe was a breakout in the part, with killer comic timing and real dramatic chops when it came time for pathos and demonstrating her character’s actual growth.At the time, I honestly didn’t appreciate it nearly as much as I should have my but my eventual takeaway wound up being: “…holy shit, they did EVERYTHING they could with that premise on their terms and totally threw down the gauntlet in terms of ‘hey, we’re here on the horror scene – show respect cause we deserve it!’” …immediately followed by: “For the love of god please DON’T do a sequel, this is a perfect self-contained minor delight as is, don’t break it” and finally the addendum “…if you must do a sequel, don’t do something stupid like try and EXPLAIN how the mechanics of the Groundhog Day time-loop gimmick works.” The original works fine operating under a vague suggestion that the universe is just trying to teach her something and nothing can kill a fun slasher premise faster than the tedium of “lore.” Happy Death Day 2U does not take my advice (obviously, as it exists) but surprisingly also seems to arrive in a place of relative agreement regarding the fact that you can’t make this great one-off “high-concept premise work as the foundation of an entire prospective franchise. So, instead, it jumps the fence within the first ten minutes and openly declares its intent to depart from being a slasher movie, a direct Groundhog Day riff or even part of the horror genre at all; arriving instead at a conclusion that’s almost shockingly brave in it’s simple honesty: If the only context where keeping this premise going might make sense is to reformat it into a sci-fi comedy a’la the Bill & Ted movies or Ghostbusters — why not just do that?Thusly, after a brief fake-out where it appears Happy Death Day 2U *might* merely be repeating the time-loop gimmick from the perspective of a different character followed by a double fake-out where it’s revealed that this new character is a science student partly responsible for inventing a quantum-MacGuffin that turns out to he responsible for the previously unexplained original time loop and then a triple fake-out where it appears original heroine Tree may have been inadvertently zapped back into the loop all over again … the film throws a curveball square at the audience’s head and opts to spin off in a totally bonkers new direction.Through contrivance of plot (THIS would be where the sort-of spoilers kick in) it’s revealed that Tree has NOT simply been blown back into her previous time-loop, but one in an alternate universe from her own — meaning that not only are the details of the day she’d previously committed to memory in order to break the loop no longer totally the same, her relationship to various characters is completely different (up to and including who’s friend, who’s foe and even who the first loop’s iconic Baby Mask killer turned out to be and why they were after her in the first place!) Complicating matters further, while some details of this reality aren’t to her liking, she discovers at least ONE major difference that leads her to initially contemplate only fixing the broken space-time continuum just enough for her to stay — which turns the film further into not simply a sci-fi-comedy with a smattering of amusing almost-gory death scene (for resetting the loop, which one again retains the first film’s inspired addition to the Groundhog formula of having Tree’s body retain injury damage between “deaths” — thus putting a limit on her ability to keep looping) but also a surprisingly poignant Millennial rumination on fate, choice and loss. Oh, and also, there’s still “someone” wearing the Baby Mask and stabbing people, since we have to at least pay cursory respect to the idea that this is technically the sequel to a slasher movie.Ultimately, I can’t really say it holds up as well as the original (particularly since, like Back to The Future 2 — which it of course, references openly — it relies so heavily on familiarity with the original to function at all) and feels less like a follow-up that “needed” to happen than it does a name-brand demo showcasing returning director Christopher Landon’s readiness to handle the moving-parts of a bigger-budget feature outside the horror genre. But speaking as a fan of the original who’d been approaching the idea of a sequel with real trepidation: I found their “Hell, why do we even need to TRY being a horror movie!?” solution refreshingly honest and had a really fun time in the moment with what they’ve put together instead.
