Seri: Liverpool & Chelsea didn’t want me enough

They said: ‘We want you, come to Fulham.’“Chelsea, Tottenham, Liverpool, they saw me but they didn’t say: ‘We want you.’ Because Fulham gave me this respect, although other clubs wanted me, I wanted to sign for Fulham.“Fulham said to my president: ‘We want Mica Seri, talk to him if he’s interested because we know Chelsea, Manchester want him and he almost signed for Barcelona but we are back in the Premier League.’“My president calls me, he says: ‘Fulham want you, do you want to go?’ I say: ‘If they want me, they respect me. The big clubs want me but Fulham show they want me’.”Seri penned a four-year contract with Fulham upon his arrival at Craven Cottage, with that deal including the option for a 12-month extension.The Cottagers will be hoping to be in a position to trigger that clause come 2022, with the west London club currently looking to cement a standing back among the Premier League elite.Having opened the season with successive defeats, they collected their first victory back in the big time last time out against Burnley – with that success followed by a win over Exeter in the Carabao Cup.

Dutee scorches track, betters own national record

first_imgBy Philem Dipak Singh Guwahati, June 29 (PTI) Top Indian sprinter Dutee Chand today smashed her own national record in women’s 100m dash on the fourth and final day of the 58th National Inter State Senior Athletics Championships here to establish herself as a gold medal contender in the upcoming Asian Games. The 22-year-old Dutee, representing Odisha, clocked 11.29 seconds to shave off one-hundredth of a second from her earlier national record of 11.30 as she scorched the track in the semifinals of the event under good conditions in the morning session at the Indira Gandhi Athletics Stadium here. She has already breached the Asian Games qualifying time of 11.67 when she clocked 11.42 in one the heats yesterday. She has also qualified for the Asian Games in 200m though 100m dash is her main event. The final race of the women’s 100m will be held later in the evening. Today’s timing has put Dutee on top of the season’s list among the Asians and she would go as one of the gold medal contenders in the Asian Games. The gold medal winners in the 2010 and 2014 Asian Games had clocked 11.33 and 11.48 respectively. Four Indian women — Roshan Mistry (1951; silver), Christine Brown (1954; bronze), P T Usha (1982; silver) and (1986; silver) and Rachita Mistry (1998; bronze) — have won a medal in the Asian Games. No Indian woman has won a gold in the 100m dash in the Asian Games. “The conditions were good and before the race I and my coach (N Ramesh) decided to go for the national record. I am very happy but I will try to further dip the timing,” Dutee said after her race.advertisement “In fact my target in this championship is to run 11:20 and I hope to achieve this. There are still eight weeks to go before the Asian Games and my target in Jakarta is to run below 11:20,” said Dutee who currently trains at Gopichand Academy in Hyderabad. Asked what contributed to this improvement in timing, she said, “I am doing a lot of core training exercises to build and strengthen my body, spending more time in gym. I am also doing endurance training like repeating 300m, 350m races in a day. Then I also do repeat of 60m, 70m. The main aim is to add more strength.” Her coach N Ramesh said extra sessions have been added to Dutee’s training regime while the dedicated physio and masseur given to her has helped in her performance. “We have added an extra hour between 11am to 12pm to do core training, pool training etc to strengthen her body. The physio and masseur given for her has also helped in strengthening her body. Her food supplements and drinks are also taken care of. For that I thanked SAI and Gopichand.” Dutee, who had won a ‘gender case’ against the international federation at the Court of Arbitration for Sports, had run 11.56 in the Federation Cup in March and was not picked in the Indian team for the Gold Coast Commonwealth Games.

A little over two years ago, Fie took a trip to France, visiting several kitchen and food shops. Fie was so amazed by the amount of interesting products she couldn’t find in the United States that she created Flotsam + Fork, an ecommerce site dedicated to making them available outside of Europe. The Manual spoke with Fie about Flotsam + Fork, her travels, and the products Manual readers should scoop up.Why did you feel that there is a need for a website like Flotsam + Fork?I wanted to create Flotsam + Fork as a place for people to find products that are not easy to find in the United States, especially well-made products from companies with great stories or makers that I find inspiring.What are some of your favorite discoveries while traveling?Always the food! I love to visit markets and grocery stores, bakeries, butcher shops, everything!I like to do some research before I go, but my favorite way to discover a place to to walk everywhere and peek into unique local shops– from hardware stores to inspiring design stores like Merci in Paris. As much as I love finding a new product, or beautiful packaging, the most memorable part of trips for me are the meals and market experiences.What are some of the key qualities a product must have to be featured on Flotsam + Fork?I want every Flotsam + Fork product to be well-made, classically and simply designed, and still affordable. Affordable doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the cheapest option, but it will be something that you will want to keep forever.I look for products that are still made in their home country, often by traditionally-minded companies that have made a decision to keep manufacturing locally, rather than outsourcing. It’s important for me to support these companies, and to provide information so that our customers know what they are supporting as well.Are you planning to visit additional countries to look for products? Where and why?I’m actually heading out on a scouting trip this week! We’re headed to the Netherlands, with a day trip detour over into Germany to visit a 200-year-old twine company and several linen weaving factories. I like my scouting trips to be an even mixture of research and random discovery, poking around kitchen shops and hardwares stores. In this case, Northwestern Germany has a long history of linen and textile manufacturing, and the Netherlands, is of course known for pottery, cheesemaking, and the De Stijl design movement.What are some essentials for the homes of Manual readers?My favorite things in the shop are some of the most functional, while still being beautiful. Manual readers should have the best clothespins in the world, this workhorse can opener for home or for picnics, a little sharpening stone for their pocket knife, and a drip-free olive oil can for kitchen or tabletop.For more information, visit read more

UN initiative aims to create jobs spur lasting peace in postconflict nations

4 November 2009The United Nations today launched a new policy aimed at creating employment and income generation in post-conflict situations, where they are vital for future stability, socio-economic growth and sustainable peace. Led by the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and the International Labour Organization (ILO), the UN Policy for Post-Conflict Employment Creation, Income Generation and Reintegration will be carried out in five initial countries emerging from conflict: Burundi, Côte d’Ivoire, Nepal, Sierra Leone and Timor-Leste.“The end of conflict in a country creates a window of opportunity for social and economic reform,” notes José-Manuel Salazar-Xirinachs, Executive Director of the ILO Employment Sector. “Job creation and self-employment opportunities provide to communities and individuals the means for survival and recovery,” he adds.Mr. Salazar-Xirinachs says the number of jobs that need to be created in post-crisis settings is “staggering,” noting that in 2007 conflicts around the world created more than 28.5 million internal displaced persons (IDPs) and nearly 4.7 million refugees. Programmes are also seeking to reintegrate over 1 million ex-combatants.The demobilization of Iraq’s military left 350,000 former soldiers in need of jobs, while the conflict in Afghanistan has resulted in at least 2 million IDPs requiring reintegration and employment. The new policy gives special attention to the needs of conflict-affected groups, particularly unemployed or under-employed women and youth. Creating employment that taps into the positive energy and skills of young people is a particularly difficult challenge, says Mr. Salazar-Xirinachs, as these groups often find themselves trapped in a vicious cycle of violence, poverty, illiteracy and social exclusion.The policy includes three programming tracks: stabilization; return and reintegration; and sustainable employment creation and decent work.It was developed jointly by 20 UN agencies and international financial institutions that constitute the Inter-Agency Working Group on Post-Conflict Employment Creation and Reintegration, and follows a three-year consultation and drafting process. read more

Lots to sample on a weekend visit to Pittsburgh dining scene

PITTSBURGH — When celebrity chef Lidia Bastianich decided to open a restaurant in Pittsburgh’s Strip District in 2001, she arrived in a neighbourhood filled with warehouses and factories.This narrow stretch of streets in the shadow of the city’s downtown office towers had long been home to food purveyors like Wholey’s Fish Market and the Pennsylvania Macaroni Company, known to locals simply as Penn Mac.But a high-end restaurant helmed by a James Beard award-winning chef? That wasn’t something anyone expected.Nearly two decades later, as Bastianich’s eponymous Pittsburgh restaurant is set to close in September, the neighbourhood around it has changed dramatically. Along what is now called Robotics Row, tech startups vie for office space in new buildings while Argo AI tests autonomous cars.In the process, Pittsburgh’s restaurant scene has become almost as unrecognizable.The city has always had spots where you could drop in for a memorable meal, from the upscale Monterey Bay Fish Grotto on Mount Washington to the always-satisfying French fries at Essie’s Original Hot Dog Shop in Oakland.But a mix of homegrown chefs and transplants from other cities have been opening risk-taking and award-winning restaurants, offering creative spins on American food and authentic takes on cuisines like Venezuelan and Vietnamese that would have been hard to find less than a decade ago.Earlier this year, the BBC called Pittsburgh “the one destination foodies shouldn’t miss in 2019,” and The Washington Post noted that Pittsburgh has “cuisine worth writing home about.”Ben Mantica, who co-founded Pittsburgh’s popular food hall Smallman Galley in 2015 and followed up with Federal Galley in 2017, credits the restaurant revival to an influx of new residents drawn to Pittsburgh by Carnegie Mellon University, the University of Pittsburgh and the growing number of tech companies operating in the city. Accustomed to dining well in San Francisco or Austin or Seattle, he says, these new Pittsburgh residents are seeking new cuisines and meals worth Instagramming.At his food halls, Mantica and co-founder Tyler Benson host a rotating selection of pop-ups, each workshopping a different dining concept. Their “restaurant incubators” allow chefs to road-test creative ideas without needing a huge financial investment.Some, like chef Pete Tolman’s Iron Born Pizza (Detroit-style deep dish with a wickedly good fermented crust that caramelizes as it bakes in steel pans), move on to open their own brick-and-mortar restaurants.Others shift to a new concept: Chef Summer Le had a hit with the Vietnamese pop-up Bahnmilicious at Smallman Galley in 2017, and opened Shaka (Hawaiian poke bowls and Vietnamese pho) this month at Federal Galley.Brian McCollum, who has been organizing Pittsburgh Restaurant Week since 2012, says independent chefs like Le are “driving more of the innovation,” and that’s had a positive ripple effect on restaurants in general.“It’s almost as if the more corporate restaurant groups are having to be just as innovative” to compete, he says.Chef Bethany Zozula, who helms the Whitfield restaurant at Pittsburgh’s Ace Hotel, says the city’s close-knit community of chefs encourage one another. In this relatively small city, “everybody knows each other,” she says. They’re willing to help each other source the right ingredients, “or if you need a phone number of a forager.”So what should you try on a weekend of dining in the Steel City?FRIDAY NIGHTDinner at Smallman Galley in the Strip District will give you a choice of four pop-ups, all offering elevated comfort food. Try the chicken and biscuits at the pop-up called Home and finish off your meal with sweets from the pop-up Sultry.If you’d prefer a more upscale vibe, try Zozula’s restaurant, Whitfield in East Liberty. She sources beef from a ranch two hours away in Bedford, Pennsylvania. The cocktail menu is strong (try the Queen Bee: bourbon, chamomile honey syrup, lemon and pineapple) and the vibe inside this rehabbed Y.M.C.A. building is effortlessly cool.Then hit one of the many craft-beer taprooms a short drive away in Lawrenceville. Eleventh Hour Brewing Company is among the best, offering a sublime nitro stout and a range of other brews.Craving a late-night snack? There’s a little izakaya called Umami tucked upstairs on the second floor above the Round Corner Cantina on Butler Street. They serve authentic Japanese skewers until 2 a.m. on weekends.SATURDAYSleep in, then wander in the Strip District and grab an early lunch — either authentic pierogis at S&D Polish Deli or fresh seafood at Wholey’s Fish Market.For dinner, make a reservation at chef Kevin Sousa’s Superior Motors in Braddock (about a 20-minute drive from downtown Pittsburgh), named among Food & Wine’s Restaurants of the Year for 2018. Plates are small but exquisite, and the location inside a former car dealership across the street from U.S. Steel’s Edgar Thomson Works couldn’t be more dramatic.SUNDAYDig into breakfast at Coca Cafe, where an ample avocado omelet served with apple-smoked bacon, jalapeno muenster and house salsa manages to feel indulgent and healthy at the same time.Have time for one more meal before leaving town? Pittsburgh’s longtime favourite, Primanti’s, serves huge sandwiches on thick Italian bread with French fries and vinegar-based coleslaw tucked inside. It has locations all over town, including a new one inside Pittsburgh’s airport.Melissa Rayworth, The Associated Press read more

Sudan should be able to disarm militias and other forces quickly UN

UN Special Rapporteur on extrajudicial killings Asma Jahangir’s call came in a report released today on her team’s two-week investigation of the deaths and displacement in Darfur in the west and the Shilook Kingdom in the south in June.The expert held an open meeting of representatives of Darfur’s Arab and African militias in Khartoum. According to the report, both sides acknowledged that the Government had given them weapons, but had given the Arabs more.”It appeared that the distribution of arms to these tribes and the amounts distributed was common knowledge,” she writes.The National Armed Forces are the country’s main defence, but the Government is empowered to recruit volunteer Popular Defence Forces (PDF) to assist regular forces. A senior PDF officer in El-Fashir “assured me that it would not be difficult to disarm the PDF as the Government kept records of the arms distributed and was formally in command of the PDF,” Ms. Jahangir says.The slow pace of the Government’s response to its own citizens’ cries for help for many years showed either “complete disrespect for the right to life,” especially in Darfur, or, “at worst, complicity in the events,” Ms. Jahangir observes.The conflict between the Government and both African areas – in the south and west – had a common factor. “In both rebellions, economic grievances are a factor and similar tactics are often used by the Government in its response, notably sponsoring militias (apart from the defence forces) to fight the rebels and, more distressingly, to terrorize and kill civilians suspected of supporting the rebels,” she concludes.Citing evidence of “large-scale extrajudicial, summary and arbitrary executions,” she recommends a series of measures, including steps to end the culture of impunity prevailing in Sudan.After having held talks in Khartoum, the three states of Darfur and Upper Nile State, as well as in Nairobi, Kenya, and Cairo, Egypt, she sent Sudan’s Permanent Mission to the UN a copy of her findings. The Government failed to offer a response, according to the report.Her report was released just before a UN spokesman announced that the Sudanese Government had finalized an agreement reached earlier this week between its Foreign Minister, Osman Ismail, and the senior United Nations envoy to the country, Jan Pronk, to disarm the militias.Ms. Jahangir says many of the people she interviewed recalled that the cries for help from Darfur had gone out for several years. Clashes between Arab nomads and sedentary African farmers since the droughts of the 1970s and 1980s were noted by a previous UN rapporteur in 1997.”They reportedly only flared up to attain their present magnitude after the Government of Sudan became involved, carrying out military operations against civilians through its armed forces, including the Popular Defence Forces, and sponsoring militias, including from some ethnically Arab tribes,” Ms. Jahangir says.”A large number of people whom I met had a strong perception that the Government was pursuing a policy of ‘Arabization’ of the Sudan, and, in particular, the Darfur region. Allegedly, those of Arab descent seek to portray themselves as ‘pure’ Muslims, as opposed to Muslims of African ethnicity,” she adds.For all of Sudan’s conflicts, a comprehensive, just and transparent peace process that takes these grievances into account is needed, she says. read more

Queen Elizabeth Is longlost skirt to go on display after being found

The Bacton Alter Cloth, believed to be made from a royal dress given to Blanche Parry, who was born in Bacton and later became Elizabethâ  s favourite personal attendant. Hampton Court Palace 15th December 2016 They say all the evidence points to  it having once been a skirt worn by  the Tudor queen, making it the only known survivor of her famously lavish wardrobe.Eleri Lynn, curator of historic dress at Historic Royal Palaces (HRP), first discovered the cloth hanging on a wall in the 13th-century church of St Faith, Bacton, last year. Dress historian Eleri Lynn, left, with the Bacton altar cloth. The pattern is strikingly similar to a bodice worn by the Tudor queen in a portrait, right She said: “When I saw it for the first time I knew immediately that it was something special. As I examined it, I felt as though I had found the Holy Grail, the Mona Lisa of fashion. None of Elizabeth I’s dresses are known to have survived, but everything we have learnt since then points to it being worn by Elizabeth.” The botanical pattern on the cloth bears a striking resemblance to that on a bodice worn by Elizabeth in the so-called Rainbow Portrait of 1602 and Ms Lynn believes it is “not inconceivable” that the skirt, which cannot be seen in the painting, is part of the same outfit. It was while researching a blog on Welsh connections to the Tudor court that Ms Lynn came across the Bacton altar cloth and paid a visit to the church.She said the embroidered design, featuring roses, daffodils and other flowers, was typical of the late 16th century, and noticed straight away that it was made from cloth of silver, which, under Tudor sumptuary law, could only be worn by the monarch or immediate members of the royal family.The connection to St Faith’s made sense because its parishioners included Blanche Parry, Elizabeth’s favourite lady-in-waiting, to whom she is known to have given clothes.

University student with serious head injuries died because medics thought he was

She said Mr Green was not seen by a doctor for three hours, despite having a reduced Glasgow Coma Scale (GCS) score, and was not managed properly after falling from his hospital bed.Speaking after the hearing, Mr Green’s parents David and Karen described him as “wonderful, bright, beautiful and kind”.”As a family, we are shocked and appalled by the lack of care given to Alex by both the South West Ambulance Service and the Royal United Hospital. Alex was in their care for over 10 hours, with a serious but detectable and treatable head injury which was not properly considered and never diagnosed,” they said. The Royal United Hospitals Bath NHS Foundation Trust said it extended its “sincere sympathy and apologies” to Mr Green’s families and friends.

A university student with a grave head injury died after medics wrongly assumed he was unconscious because he was drunk, an inquest heard. Maria Voisin, senior coroner for Avon, said the death of 22-year-old Alex Green was “contributed to by neglect” by hospital staff.Mr Green, an economics student at the University of Bath, was discovered unconscious at a bus stop in the city in the early hours of September 30 2017.Both paramedics and doctors at the Royal United Hospital failed to diagnose a “spectacular” internal head injury.His fractured skull was only spotted when Mr Green suffered a respiratory arrest 10 hours after being admitted to the hospital.The student was transferred to Southmead Hospital in Bristol, but died there three days later.Following a five-day inquest at Avon Coroner’s Court, Ms Voisin found a number of gross failures that “caused or significantly contributed to Alex’s death”.She concluded that the death of Mr Green, from East Molesey, Surrey, was an “accident contributed to by neglect”.”There was an assumption by everyone managing Alex that he had been intoxicated when in fact, he had a significant head injury,” Ms Voisin said.The coroner identified five failings with Mr Green’s care, including the assumption that his reduced consciousness was due to intoxication with “no corroborating evidence”. read more

Kinectpowered Internet Explorer 9 coming to Xbox 360

first_imgSince its introduction, Microsoft has steadily transformed the Xbox 360 from a connected gaming console into a more full-featured living room entertainment hub. With a Metro dashboard redesign, a Skype app in the works, and rumors of the new “Woodstock” music service being unveiled at E3, what more could you possibly want from your 360?A decent web browser, maybe? According to The Verge’s sources, Microsoft is already testing a modified version of Internet Explorer 9 for the console. As you’d expect, those same sources have tipped Kinect integration —  so you could be surfing the web using voice and gesture controls on your console in the very near future.The Xbox 360 has been around since 2005, so why has it taken so long for Microsoft to deliver a web browser to its users? For one, the masses haven’t seemed too interested in browsing on a console. Interest may finally be picking up though, and with the PS3 now sporting a much-improved Webkit browser Microsoft may be thinking that there’s no time like the present. Delivering IE9 to the Xbox 360 would also help boost Microsoft’s browser market share — which has been rising slowly but steadily in recent months. It will of course drag Bing along with it as the default search service.There’s also been talk that the next Xbox will run whatever Microsoft’s current desktop operating system is — whether that’s Windows 8 or even Windows 9. If that’s really in the works, the Metro redesign and IE port may be the first steps to an even more unified experience across all screens.More at The Vergelast_img read more

Cybercrime forum admin sends Brian Krebs 13 bags of heroin

first_imgYou’ve probably received a gag gift or two from someone before, but security researcher Brian Krebs‘ recent delivery takes the cake. A Russian cybercrime forum admin sent Krebs a gram of heroin to “save him from acute heroin withdrawal.”Obviously, the real goal was to have some fun at Krebs’ expense — and possibly tarnish his reputation and land him in the hoosegow. The admin, who uses the handle Flycracker, hoped to send a second delivery to the Krebs household: the local police.It’s a much more complicated “prank” than, say, a spoofed SWAT roll. Flycracker first solicited Bitcoin donations from fellow forum members. Once a pair of Bitcoins (currently worth around $200) had been accumulated, Flycracker took to the Silk Road to find a willing heroin dealer.Haven’t heard of the Silk Road before? It’s an online black market that can only be accessed through the Tor network where merchants peddle everything from heroin and weed to cigarettes and works of art.Flycracker struck a deal with a reputable seller called Maestro. Delivery was arranged for Tuesday at 3pm, which came as no surprise to Krebs. He’d been watching the whole scene unfold from an account he’d established on Flycracker’s forums.The drugs arrived a day early. Maestro had made good on his “buy ten, get two free” offer, and even threw in a lucky 13th baggie at no charge. Krebs believes it had more to do with making sure that a full gram had been sent  — you don’t get 100% feedback on the Silk Road by shafting your buyers, after all.Krebs had contacted the FBI and his county police well in advance to let them know what was going on. An incredulous officer gladly confiscated the contraband, shaking his head the whole time and talking about how he hoped to be completely unplugged from the Internet by the time he retired.When criminal “pranksters” are trying to pull off schemes like this against the good guys, it’s easy to understand why he’d want to do it.last_img read more

Le parc n’ayant pas encore été totalement inspecté, les autorités prévoient de retrouver d’autres carcasses d’éléphants.Les éléphants vivants dans le Parc National de Boubandjida, au Cameroun, sont victimes d’un massacre sans nom. Depuis le début du mois de janvier, 200 d’entre eux ont été abattus par des braconniers, essentiellement pour leur voler leurs défenses en ivoire. Ainsi, c’est un spectacle tragique auquel assistent les équipes qui arpentent le parc, retrouvant les carcasses des animaux torturés et mutilés. D’après le Fonds international pour la protection des animaux (IFAW) (lien non disponible), ce massacre serait l’œuvre d’une bande de braconniers armés venus du Soudan. “L’ivoire est exporté illégalement hors d’Afrique centrale et d’Afrique de l’Ouest pour alimenter les marchés en Asie et en Europe. L’argent récolté finance ensuite l’achat d’armes qui serviront dans des conflits régionaux, tels que ceux qui ont cours au Darfour, au Soudan et en Centrafrique”, a expliqué Céline Sissler-Bienvenu, Directrice d’IFAW France et Afrique francophone. Mais le carnage pourrait ne pas s’arrêter là. En effet, toutes les zones du parc n’ont pas encore pu être inspectées, laissant craindre un bilan bien plus grave. De plus, les braconniers semblent bien déterminés à ne pas repartir sans rien : ils s’en prennent même aux éléphanteaux et leurs défenses naissantes. Même si ces petits ont la chance de réchapper aux attaques, leur destin n’est pas moins grave. Devenus orphelins, ils risquent de mourir de faim ou de soif très rapidement, alourdissant encore le bilan de la vague de braconnage.  Coordonner la lutte pour sauver les éléphants À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Le nombre exact d’éléphants vivant au Cameroun est inconnu, mais le Rapport d’État de l’Éléphant d’Afrique de 2007 publié par l’UICN (l’Union internationale pour la conservation de la nature), l’estime à 200. Cependant, le nombre réel d’éléphants oscillerait plus probablement entre 1.000 et 5.000 individus, précise dans un communiqué l’IFAW qui œuvre pour prévenir la cruauté envers les animaux et plaide pour la protection des espèces sauvages et de leurs habitats. D’après Céline Sissler-Bienvenu, le seul moyen de mettre fin aux sanglants massacres perpétrés au Cameroun et sur le continent africain consiste à annihiler la demande en ivoire, notamment en Asie. Il faut par ailleurs s’assurer que les responsables de la protection de la faune sauvage dans les États de l’aire de répartition des éléphants disposent des compétences et de l’équipement nécessaires pour mettre au pas les bandes de braconniers professionnels. Face à la situation, l’IFAW a ainsi décidé de lancer un programme de soutien à destination des rangers et des forces de l’ordre du Parc National tchadien de Sena Oura, frontalier de l’autre.Le but : mettre en place une stratégie coordonnée de sauvegarde des éléphants dans la région désormais d’une importance vitale.Le 17 février 2012 à 18:05 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Globally One of Five Persons in the Workplace Will Experience a Mental

first_img Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Bahamas, October 11, 2017 – Nassau – Globally, it is estimated that one out of five persons in the workplace will experience a mental health condition, Dr. Keva Thompson, Consultant on Non-Communicable Diseases, Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) said.Despite this, there is a lack of awareness of mental health in the workplace, Dr. Thompson said during the opening ceremony of ‘World Mental Health Day’ Symposium hosted by Public Hospitals Authority at Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre, October 10, 2017.   She said, furthermore, people with mental illnesses typically conceal their illnesses for fear of discrimination and stigmatization when looking for or keeping a job.Dr. Thompson noted that the WHO in collaboration with the World Mental Health Federation celebrates World Mental Health on October 10 each year with the objectives of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world, and mobilizing support for mental health.   This year’s theme is ‘Mental Health in the Workplace’.Dr. Thompson said, “Depression in workers is a leading cause of loss of work productivity, sick leave and premature retirement.    “Research has found that the treatment of depression results in a 40 to 60 per cent reduction in absenteeism and/or ‘presenteeism.’“A $1 investment in the treatment of depression or anxiety leads to a return of $4 in better health and the ability to work.”She explained that mental health problems have direct impact in the workplace through increases in absenteeism, reduction in productivity at work, increase in disability claims, injuries, illnesses, grievances, high turnover of professionals and legal implications.“Annually, the global cost of mental health problems in 2010 was estimated at US$2.5 trillion; two thirds of this was directly linked to indirect costs.”Dr. Thompson said those indirect costs typically are absenteeism and lost productivity.    Alarmingly, this number is expected to balloon to US$6 trillion by 2030.   She said employers should proactively address poor mental health and depression in the workplace to increase productivity, to reduce costs, and more importantly to support a healthier employee base.The Consultant added that it is important for both the employer and the co-workers to be able to recognize the signs of poor mental health and depression in the workplace.She explained that employers can become agents of change and promote mental health in the workplace by considering measures such as:Increasing awareness of mental health issues, and diminishing stressful workplace risk factors;Developing an organizational climate that promotes well-being and creativity;Facilitating access to healthcare for employees who may need it;Being understanding and flexible to the needs of employees, and understanding their personal situations;Combating stigma and encouraging open discussions in the workplace about mental health.She said, similarly, colleagues can support those struggling with mental health conditions by making it clear that they want to help, showing they are willing to listen without argument and offering support, while encouraging them to seek professional assistance.Dr. Thompson pointed out: “If you think for a minute that [a] person is in immediate danger, do not leave him or her alone, but seek help from the emergency services, crisis hotline or a healthcare professional.“You should also stay in touch with that person and check in and see how they are doing.”Dr. Thompson said a healthy work environment is important to positive mental health:  “A mental health-friendly environment values diversity, offers healthcare that incorporates mental health, has programmes and practices that promote and support health and wellness, provides training for personnel to increase awareness of mental health issues and impact on the workplace, safeguards employee confidentiality, supports employees who seek treatment or require hospitalization or disability leave.“Globally, the best companies have long [recognized] that employee well-being is a key element in a successful and happy workplace.“How our employees feel about stress, pressure at work and life balance is integral to the company’s potential for sustainable growth and development,” Dr. Thompson said.By: Llonella Gilbert (BIS)Photo caption: Dr. Keva Thompson, Consultant on Non-Communicable Diseases, Pan American Health Organization/World Health Organization (PAHO/WHO) brings remarks during the opening ceremony of ‘World Mental Health Day Symposium’ hosted by the Public Hospitals Authority at Sandilands Rehabilitation Centre, October 10, 2017.(BIS Photo/Derek Smith) Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

BJP demands probe into power agreements granite mining

first_imgHyderabad: State BJP president K Laxman and Karimnagar Lok Sabha member Bandi Sanjay Kumar have dared the State government and Chief Minister K Chandrashekar Rao to institute an inquiry by CBI or by a sitting judge on power purchase agreements and “illegal” granite mining in the State. Addressing the media separately here on Monday, Laxman said instead of attacking the BJP politically, he said the State government had created artificial power shortage and entered into short-term power purchase agreements on the ground of supplying power to the farmers. Also Read – JIH organises Eid Milap for sanitary workers Advertise With Us He demanded that the State government disclose the details of power supplied to the farmers. The BJP leader asked details of the assured payment to the power companies, irrespective of usage of power as per the power purchase agreements. Similarly, he said the State government had purchased solar power at excess rates. Stating that the Centre had only given conditional approval for the installation of the 270-megawatt power plant, he said, “The State government after burning its fingers with the India Bulls power project trying to install power project at Manuguru of Khamma district.

It was for these reasons that the no response had been given to the RTI queries on these issues for the last nine months, he alleged. He asked the Chief Minister to institute a probe by CBI or by a sitting judge. Otherwise, the party would expose its wrongdoings in the people’s court, he said. Advertise With Us Karimnagar MP alleged that the TRS Ministers and peoples’ representatives had been supporting illegal mining mafia in the State resulting in loss of hundreds of crores of rupees revenues to the government. He said eight quarries in Karimnagar alone were given notices to pay Rs 749 crore for violating the mining rules between 2008 and 2011. The illegal mining activity had come to fore only after the officials at Kakinada Port had found the granite stocks from the Karimnagar being exported to China. On knowing the illegal activity, “Even the Chinese government had slapped fines. But, even after 10 years, the TRS government is not collecting fines,” he said. However, following the complaints the State government had recently issued a memo to the mine owners to pay only a one time fine over and above Rs 124 crore. This is although the State government has no authority to do so. “Officials of mining, revenue, police, pollution control, sale tax, commercial tax and others are not even bothered about taking action.last_img read more

The needs of rural providers are both simpler and more challenging than those of urban centers, as rural providers must find systems that can handle all patients who come to them. With their oval bores, the 1.5T scanners at Star Valley Medical Center and West Feliciana Hospital exemplify this — designed to deliver quality MR images regardless of the patient.For rural providers, therefore, success in meeting imaging needs may depend on finding the common denominator rather than the uncommon. Surveys Indicate Clinical NeedsAfter surveying patients and physicians about what they expected from MRI services at the hospital, administrators at Star Medical Center decided to purchase an MRI scanner, choosing one that meets the broadest needs of the patient population.Serving patients since 1970, West Feliciana Hospital in St. Francisville, LA., installed an MRI scanner, which  — similarly — took over from a once-a-week mobile service. The stationary system was acquired after a survey strongly indicated that hospital physicians wanted an MRI scanner on-site.Although some patients were opting to trek 40 miles to Baton Rouge for MRIs, overall patient demand for MRI was low. But there was potential for growth.

The first blog, Rural Imaging Requires Affordable And Versatile Equipment​, can be found here. Rural America does not show up in any atlas but, geographically, it accounts for 80 percent of the United States’ land mass, according to the National Organization of State Offices of Rural Health. About 62 million people live there, all of whom have the same clinical needs as those who live in big cities. Meeting their needs, however, can be very hard, especially when it comes to high-tech imaging.Rural health centers typically struggle with the double whammy of tight budgets and limited resources. Often these centers have trouble affording the magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and computed tomography (CT) scanners that are common in big cities. That’s why some rural facilities opt for workarounds. One is to contract with mobile providers.One mobile MRI provider visits Republic County Hospital of Belleville, Kansas, twice a week. But that may not go on for long. The 25-bed critical assess hospital is considering the installation of an MRI scanner on site, according to David-Paul Cavazos, CEO of Republic County Hospital.Part of the Great Plains Health Alliance, the Republic County Hospital is bookended by more than a dozen MR scanners in Salina, Kansas, and Lincoln, Nebraska. But to take advantage of them, patients must drive more than an hour or nearly two hours, respectively.“Agriculture is a big employer around here,” Cavazos said. “It’s not easy to just walk away from farm work.”Traveling long distances can be difficult for rural residents. Patients of Star Valley Medical Center faced this challenge.The medical center they depended on — a 22-bed, critical access hospital in Afton, Wyoming — used a mobile MR unit until their needs exceeded the capacity of the service. With its mobile unit booked well in advance, patients who urgently needed a scan had trouble getting scheduled. The backlog was also leading some patients to drive 70 miles to Jackson Hole for their MRIs.
