Rabat – A new trend in Moroccan night clubs has young people consuming a Chinese drug with an unknown name.According to Akhbar Al Youm, the Chinese drug is consumed when establishments stop serving alcohol after midnight. Known as an “inhalation drug,” the substance is reportedly also used by people living on the streets. The new poison invading tourist cities, including Marrakech and Agadir, during summer costs between MAD 20 and 80, depending on the dose ordered. The Chinese drug is inhaled in plastic bags to achieve quick euphoria. The new drug has the same effect of agitation and euphoria as rags soaked in chemicals and other anesthetic products.Consumers inhale fumes or chemical vapors directly from substances in a small plastic or paper bag. The chemicals could have an adverse effect on the health of the consumer by immediately damaging the body and brain.A study conducted by the Biochemistry and Nutrition and Cellular Biology group in affiliation with Casablanca’s Faculty of Medicine and Pharmacy found in 2017 that 600,000 Moroccans are addicted to drugs, with 16,000 addicted to hard drugs like heroin and cocaine. Young people aged 18 to 28 are the most addicted to hard drugs, comprising 70 percent of total Moroccans addicted to the destructive substances.According to the 2015 annual report of the National Observatory of Drugs and Addictions, around 4 to 5 percent of Morocco’s adult population uses drugs, a minimum of 800,000 users. read more

Therefore, Agricultural income generated specially by the small scale entrepreneurs in the  cultivation of any agricultural produce such as tea, spices, coconut, rubber, paddy, fruits, vegetables, etc, to be exempted from income taxation for a period of 5 years.With the introduction of several changes to the tax system by the previous government, Sri Lanka’s business community particularly the small and medium entrepreneurs those engaged in professional and other services and agricultural activities have been confronted with complex taxation and heavy tax burden.In addition to the imposition of high income taxes on wage income and other remuneration, interest and rent incomes, tax burden has also increased through high tax rates and reduction in tax free thresholds for the implementation of Value Added Tax (VAT), Nation Building Tax (NBT) Economic Services Charge (ESC), withholding taxes, etc. People are looking for a simple, broad based, low tax rates, a transparent tax system and a simplified tax administration. Agricultural income generated, specially by small scale entrepreneurs in the cultivation of any agricultural produce such as tea, spices, coconut, rubber, paddy, fruits, vegetables, etc, are to be exempted from income taxation for a period of 5 years.In order to promote the  agricultural production in the country for exports and consumption purposes the Government has decided to provide a five year tax exemption to the agricultural based small and medium industry. In addition the annual income tax rate on processing industries using local agricultural commodities is to be reduced from 28 per cent to 14 per cent. Further, as a measure to ease the serious hardships to small holder business operations, it has been proposed to raise the threshold for the application of ESC Economic Service Charge from Rs. 12.5 million per quarter to Rs.50 million per quarter. The relief measures have been introduced on the instructions of the President and the Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs and are aimed at providing highest priority to agricultural development.Accordingly the Government is of the view that every effort should be made to make use of the 2018 /19 Maha cultivation season as a new beginning. Such a system of taxation is important to provide an environment conducive for doing domestic business in the SME sector, professional and other services and agricultural activities. While formulating a simple tax system takes some time, Mahinda Rajapakse, Minister of Finance and Economic Affairs, proposes at this stage to introduce some specific measures towards providing incentives that will enable SMEs and small sector business activities to revive rapidly. read more

“I think on days like this, what one really feels is a sense of hope,” Lakhdar Brahimi, Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s Special Representative for Afghanistan, said at the handover ceremony in Kabul, referring to the enormous difficulties facing that country.Despite the challenges towards peace and stability, Mr. Brahimi added, “It is do-able because the people of Afghanistan are tired of war, they are tired of conflict, they are tired of this destruction that has descended on them for so many years. They would like to enjoy a little bit of peace, a little bit of stability and they are counting on the international community to help them do that.”In addition to the outgoing and incoming Commanders of the International Security Assistance Force (ISAF), the Defence Ministers of Turkey, Germany and the Netherlands were also present at the ceremony, presided over by President Hamid Karzai. read more

The energy sector led declines as crude prices deteriorated further.The market has plunged about 400 points over the past three sessions alone.The deterioration in investor confidence has left the TSX at its worst level since early October of last year, down more than 10 per cent from its most recent highs registered at the end of February.The TSX Venture Exchange eased 22.3 points to 1,217.77.But the hunt for safety continued to punish the Canadian dollar. It closed 0.57 of a cent lower at a four-month low of 98.75 cents US.New York markets also shed early advances despite data showing housing starts rising 2.6 per cent in March while U.S. factory production increased 0.6 per cent in April.There was limited reaction to news that Federal Reserve policymakers are open to further efforts to stimulate the U.S. economy if growth falters or economic threats escalate.Minutes of the central bank’s April 24-25 meeting stated that “several members” thought additional Fed support could be needed if the recovery lost momentum or if the risks to the economy became great enough. The minutes did not spell out such circumstancesThe Dow Jones industrials were 33.45 points lower at 12,598.55.The Nasdaq composite index lost 19.72 points to 2,874.04 and the S&P 500 index fell 5.86 points to 1,324.8.Greece has weighed heavily on buying sentiment since an inconclusive election May 6 left no party with enough votes to form a government and Greeks will go back to the polls on June 17.Many Greeks voted for parties that had been on the fringe of the political spectrum and which want to see the country abandon the tough austerity measures adopted in return for the huge international bailouts that are propping up that country.Without agreeing to another round of austerity measures, it’s conceivable that Greece’s partners in the eurozone will withhold the next round of bailout cash. An exit from the euro might then become inevitable.If Greece leaves the euro, then a precedent would be set that could be taken up by other countries burdened by high debt levels.“Investors are definitely getting increasingly frustrated that we had heard this story over and over again,” said Jeff Bradacs, portfolio manager at Manulife Asset Management.“As they approach the June deadline, I think investors are really looking for a kind of a decision here on whether they will stay in the eurozone or exit the euro.”The flight from risk continued to drive commodities lower since no one knows how much damage a chaotic Greek exit from the eurozone would have on the broader global economy.But a higher U.S. dollar has also hammered prices for oil and metals. That’s because prices are denominated in U.S. dollars and a higher greenback makes oil and metals more expensive for holders of other currencies.And even before Greece reoccupied centre stage on markets, commodities and resource stocks were losing ground amid signs of a slowing global economy.“And a lot of concern there rests on China,” Bradacs said.“Growth in China has been slowing from a very high pace. To get those stocks moving again we need to see more accomodative moves from China to really move our commodity stocks.”On the TSX, losses were led by the energy sector, down 0.7 per cent as the June crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange lost $1.17 to US$92.81, its lowest level since last November. Suncor Energy (TSX:SU) slipped 22 cents to $27.45.Financials also weakened with Manulife Financial (TSX:MFC) down 39 cents to $11.25.The base metals sector was the biggest advancer, up 1.4 per cent even as copper prices continued to slide with the July contract down four cents to US$3.48 a pound, its lowest level since early January. The metal, viewed as an economic barometer since it is used in so many industries, has plunged 10 per cent this month. Ivanhoe Mines (TSX:IVN) climbed 32 cents to $9.07 while First Quantum Minerals (TSX:FM) ran up 90 cents to C$17.74.Investors also sold off bullion, which was down $20.50 to US$1,536.60 an ounce, a price not seen since last July. But the gold sector ticked about one per cent higher and Barrick Gold Corp. (TSX:ABX) climbed 48 cents to C$35.71.Industrial stocks also supported the TSX, with Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP) up $1.69 to $75.86, a day before CP’s annual meeting. Shareholders will vote on a proposal from Pershing Square Capital Management, its biggest shareholder, to install a new slate of directors and replace CEO Fred Green with former Canadian National CEO Hunter Harrison. read more


Opinion A mental health nurses experience of mental health issues

September 22, 2019

Tagged: , , , ,


first_imgI AM AN ordinary married man, with three children, a semi-detached house in the suburbs and I commute daily to a job as a mental health professional.I also have mental health issues.Does that surprise you? It surprised me, and I have worked in this area for over a decade.I grew up thinking mental health was someone else’s problem. That it was that man in a bus shelter who talked to himself. That it was the ‘cat lady’ down the street who rarely set foot outside her home. I never realised that mental health touched my life and that it touched the people I loved.My story is all too common, without celebrity or scandal. I was bullied as a child. It took me to a dark place in my head and I learned to hide it from the world on a daily basis. I would put a ‘front’ on; a mask that only I knew was there. A mask to hide the anxiety I felt going near school or other children, the low self-worth I was experiencing that kept reminding me I was no good. Soon the voices in my mind were negative enough to keep me down and I no longer needed the bully to help.I quickly became an expert at hiding itI kept the front up to make people believe I was strong and confident when inside I was scared and unhappy. I went to a dark place in my head more than once where I would have been more than happy to not wake up the next morning. I had a loving family who did not even realise it was going on because I quickly became an expert at hiding it.It was my own prejudice and fear that kept me from talking about it. This same fear kept me alone in my feelings when, actually, all around me there were supports that could have lessened my burden. I didn’t even understand what depression or anxiety was back then and until recently I believed these were things ‘other people’ experienced. It was my own sense of stigma that got in my way.In 2012, research showed that 56% of Irish people surveyed would not want others to know about their mental health problem and 24% would hide it even from close family.I don’t tell you this story to make you feel sorry for me. I tell it because fear, worry and self-doubt are feelings everyone can relate to and yet we continue to think mental health is someone else’s problem. The WHO uses statistics to show that 1:4 people will experience a diagnosable mental health problem at some point in their life. However mental health isn’t just about diagnosis. We don’t have to wait to have a heart attack to begin eating well or take regular exercise. We do it because it keeps us well.The statistic should be 4:4; we will ALL experience a mental health problem in our lives. It has happened, or will happen when we have a problem at work, in a relationship, a grief issue, a financial worry or an anxiety about something. Surely we can all relate to being afraid, grief stricken, worried or feeling down about something.I survivedI also tell the story to show I am OK, more than OK actually. I am loved by people who care for me; and I do my best to care for them. I survived this time and while like everybody else I continue to have my mental health issues, I take steps to take care of myself – to ‘mind’ my mental health. To take responsibility for my own mental health the same way we take responsibility for our physical health. I developed and nurtured resilience in my life and I didn’t even have the language to describe how I managed that. I had supports I wasn’t even conscious of.People with mental health problems can and do recover. However these same people often report that living with the stigma of mental health is often worse than living with the illness.Just like we all have physical health we all have mental health. At what point did we decide to treat ourselves as if our head and mind was not always attached to our body and that our mental health was something to be scared of?I work for Saint John of God Hospital and See Change. Together with over 70 partner organisations we are supporting the fight to end stigma around mental health. This month has been GreenRibbon month. A whole month to get people engaged in talking about mental health.I hope everybody reading this will start a conversation about mental health with their family and friends, their husbands or wives, and their children or colleagues, talk in schools with teachers, at home with parents and children, around coffee tables and board rooms. You don’t have to be an expert to show someone you care and are willing to listen if they are having a bad day, or even a good day. Let’s change minds about mental health, one conversation at a time.Visit the Saint John of God Hospital website or Facebook page, and learn more about the Green Ribbon campaign #greenribbon #makearipplelast_img read more


Theophanous committal hearing continues

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The committal hearing in the case of Theo Theophanous who is accused of rape is continuing on Friday in the Melbourne’s Magistrate Court. A woman claims that she was raped by the Victorian MP in a night of September 1998, inside his Parliamentary office. Last week the court heard testimonies from the alleged victim as well as three of her friends. The friends were testifying to the fact that they were contacted by the woman after the alleged rape. Two of the three witnesses disputed her claims that they were made aware of the alleged incident and even went so far as to testify that their friend tried to cajole their cooperation to her claims. “She wanted me to help her out with the case,” one of the witnesses said on Wednesday, according to media reports. “She was coaching me to say things. She was asking me to give false evidence,” she added. In her testimony she even discredited the claim that she exchanged emails with the alleged victim regarding the supposed sexual attack. A third woman on Friday testified that she did receive a distress call from the alleged victim. She testified via video link from London saying that her friend called her from a pay phone in September of 1998 in a state of panic revealing to her that she had been the victim of an attack. “Raped, attacked, I don’t remember the exact words,” she said.“She was very upset, more than upset, she was in a panic, she was very distressed,” she added. The friend also testified that the connection was abruptly cut because the alleged victim did not add money to extend the duration of the call.Defence lawyer Robert Richter QC, however, disputed her claim saying that local calls in Australia are paid on a fixed rate rather than on a time basis. Moreover, Mr Theophanous’ lawyer questioned the fact that after the distress call two days passed without any communication between the two women. The witness responded that she didn’t feel that close with the alleged victim at the time to initiate contact pressing for more information.At the end of the hearings Magistrate Peter Reardon will decide if the matter will go to trial.last_img read more


William Davis journey to Gallipoli

September 21, 2019

first_imgMelbourne’s impressive Trades Hall Building was once the host to a little known celebrated send-off. It was in this classically-inspired building that a function was held on 1 October 1914 to honour a group of Anzac volunteers about to depart from Port Melbourne.They were all Victorian members of the Federated Engine Drivers Federation and Firemen’s Association (FEDFA). Among the 10 trade union members was Colour Sergeant William Edwin Davis, the former Victorian president of the union. William and his comrades would leave the classical columns of Trades Hall and voyage to Lemnos on an ultimately fatal journey to the killing fields of the Gallipoli peninsula. I became aware of William Davis through the research of author Malcolm McDonald. A former engine driver and secretary of the FEDFA, Malcolm discovered the story of the Trades Hall send-off while writing a history of the union. I discussed William’s story with Malcolm over a lunch of yemista followed by Greek coffee prepared by his wife Flora in their home in Melbourne’s Burwood. Flora hails from the village of Ligaria, near Serres, her parents having fled on foot there from eastern Thrace in the early 1920s as children. Malcolm and Flora met not long after she arrived in Australia, introduced by mutual friend Spiros Kokkinos. Malcolm remembers well the times they spent at Melbourne’s Democratis Club with Spiros who was club president for a time. Spiros was also one of the volunteers who promoted Neos Kosmos in the early days of the newspaper.William was born in Melbourne’s Fitzroy. An only son, he grew up to become an engine driver and active in his trade union. He was soon married to Maud. By 1914 they had seven children and were living in Prahran. Life was no picnic for working class families like the Davis’. William’s wages were hardly enough to keep the family afloat, with Maud taking in sewing to make ends meet. Every penny had to be accounted for and there was no room for extravagances.William Edwin Davis Photo: NAA, uploaded by Faithe JonesReading the history, it is clear that William and Maud were a team. Maud shared his passion for social justice and worker rights. It was Maud’s evidence before Justice Higgins in 1911 detailing the frugal reality for a family living on workers’ wages that resulted in significant wage improvements for engine drivers. William left all of this behind when he enlisted in the Australian Imperial Force on 15 August, not long after the outbreak of the war. As a former militia volunteer, William was appointed to the rank of Colour Sergeant in the 6th Australian Infantry Battalion. William and the battalion sailed from Melbourne’s Princes Pier on 19 October 1914 aboard the HMAT Hororata – not far from the location of Melbourne’s Lemnos Gallipoli memorial. Malcolm wonders what Maud and the children felt as they waved him off to war.After a period of training in Egypt, William departed Alexandria and arrived at Lemnos in early April. A photograph from the time shows the battalion in Mudros Bay aboard their troopship Galeka. William would have marvelled at the vast armada of some 200 warships and transports being assembled in the bay. At Lemnos William would have spent the time as all other diggers did on Lemnos – training for the coming landings at Gallipoli. The morning of 24 April was a sunny day on Lemnos, “real Australian sunshine” one soldier recorded. William and the 2nd Brigade sailed from Mudros Bay, headed for the Bay of Pournia on Lemnos’ northern shore. Here they lay at anchor until their departure in the early hours of the following day. This quiet bay features well in Lemnos’ history – for not only did the Anzac’s depart from here, but they were following in the wake of Homer’s Odysseus who, legend says, sailed from here to Troy. And here too Lemnos’ 15th century warrior Maroula Komnenos defended Kotsinas Castle against the Ottomans. Her statue stands sentinel at Kotsinas on the edge of the bay.William took part in the landing at Anzac Cove as dawn broke on 25 April and the subsequent defence of the beachhead. His service would be rewarded by his promotion to Second Lieutenant on 28 April, barely three days after the landing. But William’s Gallipoli would take him and the 2nd Brigade to the southern end of the peninsula and one of the most murderous attacks of the whole campaign – the Second Battle of Krithia. Like many of the villages on the Peninsula, Krithia had been inhabited by mainly local Hellenes but was now empty. The local Hellenes across the peninsula had been removed by the Ottoman authorities to villages across the Marmara Sea in the weeks prior to the Gallipoli campaign.William left Anzac Cove on 6 May and by the morning of 8 May was in position behind the lines at Krithia. William’s unit was ordered to attack with barely ten minutes notice. William’s section was one of the advance companies of the battalion when it launched its assault. Spreading out and rushing forward to the enemy lines more than 1,000 metres away. William faced increasing rifle and machine gun fire as well as shrapnel from artillery shells bursting overhead. Ottoman snipers picked off the advancing Australians. The enemy fire was so devastating that the attack was suspended at 6.30 pm, the Australians having barely crossed the half the ground required. Over 50 per cent of the battalion was killed, wounded and missing. Many officers were killed along with their men, including William. We don’t know if he was killed instantly or died after lying on the battlefield. A photograph from that terrible morning shows the carnage exacted on the Australians. The official British historian of the Gallipoli campaign called the battle Australia’s “unrecognised Balaclava”. Although never captured by the Allies, the village would be devastated by Allied bombardments and left in ruins. In 2015 I visited the rebuilt village of Krithia (now named Alcitepe) on my journey to the Helles Memorial to the Missing at the end of the Gallipoli peninsula. The Asia Minor catastrophe saw the Greek villagers of Krithia forced to flee to Greece and establish their new village of Krithia to the north of Thessaloniki, not far from Flora’s village near Serres.The former Greek village of Krithia today. Photo: Jim ClavenWilliam’s death is recorded on the Helles Memorials’ sandstone memorial walls, one of the 248 Australians amongst the over 20,000 Allied names recorded there. His name may well have been etched by one of the many local Greek stonemasons who had returned to the area following the end of the war and who worked on the memorials on the peninsula. It was also recorded in his home suburb of Prahran, in the gilt lettering on the grand Memorial Wall of the local RSL Hall. William was also missed by his fellow trade unionists. In 1915 the Union recorded “their admiration for their late comrades who died fighting for the Empire” and “their sincere sympathy for those whose hearts were sad for their loss of their beloved ones”. The union’s journal recorded the “deep regret” of the union’s Victorian secretary at the news of the death of ‘Comrade Davis’ and on behalf of all Victorian members “extend[ed] their heartfelt sympathy to Mrs Davis and her family in her hour of trial”.William Davis’ story reveals more of the story of Anzac and how it affected society. With his death, Australia and his family were denied the future contributions of William and all the others killed and wounded in the war. We know that later in the First World War, Australian society was divided by the two conscription referendums unsuccessfully launched by the Hughes government. William was one of those who volunteered – as all diggers did – and indeed the majority of enlisted men voted against the introduction of conscription. Many trade unions were in the forefront of the movement opposed to conscription. We don’t know William’s view but as a prominent trade unionist it is likely he would have opposed its introduction. The success of the campaign opposing conscription is commemorated on the walls of the very Trades Hall that witnessed William’s send-off.Some years ago Malcolm McDonald made the journey to Gallipoli where William’s journey had ended. More recently, Malcolm and Flora made their own pilgrimage to Lemnos, following in William’s footsteps. They arrived on Lemnos from Kavala and were guided through the island’s war cemeteries, and the ancient site of Poliochni, by a generous local. Staying in one of Myrina’s harbourside hotels, Malcolm and Flora sat on the very harbour were hundreds – if not thousands – of Allied soldiers and nurses walked in 1915. And no doubt many would have enjoyed the wonderful seafood in the local fish restaurants, as Malcolm and Flora did.Flora and Malcolm McDonald at the Lemnos Gallipoli Memorial in Albert Park, Melbourne. Photo: Jim ClavenThe story of William Davis – and that of Malcolm and Flora McDonald –reveals again the web of connections linking ordinary Australians and Hellenes through our common Hellenic Anzac story.* Jim Claven is a historian, freelance writer and secretary of the Lemnos Gallipoli Commemorative Committee (LGCC). He is working with committee president Lee Tarlamis on a commemorative event to be held at the Lemnos Gallipoli memorial honouring Anzac trade unionists such as William Davis. Malcolm McDonald is also a member of the LGCC. Jim Claven thanks Flora and Malcolm McDonald for sharing their story. Jim can be contacted via jimclaven@yahoo.com.au.

Sida un traitement contre lherpès réduirait la progression du virus

first_imgSida : un traitement contre l’herpès réduirait la progression du virusÉtats-Unis – Une étude publiée dans le journal médical The Lancet révèle que l’acyclovir, traitement destiné à soigner l’herpès génital de type 2, permettrait de réduire la progression du VIH chez les personnes atteintes des deux maladies.D’après le docteur Jairam Ligappa de l’université de Washigton, un traitement quotidien contre l’herpès génital HSV2 avec l’acyclovir réduirait le taux de concentration du VIH dans le plasma.L’étude a été menée sur quatorze sites d’Afrique orientale et méridionale sur 3.381 personnes hétérosexuelles atteintes à la fois du VIH et de ce type d’herpès. Durant 24 mois, on administrait chez la moitié d’entre eux une dose d’acyclovir deux fois par jour, pour l’autre moitié il s’agissait d’un placebo. Ces personnes ne prenaient aucun traitement anti-sida et présentaient un taux de CD4 (lymphocytes dont la réduction montre une baisse de l’immunité qui conduit au sida) supérieur à 250 par microlitre.C’est en analysant le taux de CD4 que les chercheurs ont pu constater l’effet du traitement contre l’herpès sur la progression de la maladie. Cette prise quotidienne réduisait de 16% la progression. Les personnes recevant ce traitement étaient moins nombreuses à descendre sous le seuil de 200 CD4 que ceux recevant un placebo (284 contre 324). Pour les auteurs de l’étude, cette réduction reste modeste, mais le traitement pourrait être “un outil de plus pour aider les séropositifs à rester plus longtemps en bonne santé” comme l’explique le Dr Lingappa. Car si le niveau de CD4 reste stable plus longtemps, les malades retarderont la thérapie antirétrovirale dont les effets secondaires sont lourds. Cependant, l’acyclovir ne réduirait pas la transmission du VIH d’autant que l’herpès génital est un facteur qui augmente de deux à huit fois ce risque en cas d’ulcérations herpétiques, même inapparentes.Le 15 février 2010 à 11:28 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Dr. Angela Gaeto from Helen Woodward Animal Center joined Good Morning San Diego to discuss water safety guidelines owners should consider.Pool Safety:If you have a pool or your pet spends time near a pool, there are many safety guidelines you should consider. First, do not assume your pet can swim. If you have a new pet that will have access to the pool, you should start with supervised pool time to make sure they can swim. Also, many pets know how to swim but cannot find their way out of the pool safely, especially puppies, small dogs, and breeds with short legs. While training your pet, teach them how to walk out of the pool and where the stairs are located. Also, make sure your pet has access to fresh water outside to avoid drinking large amounts of pool water.Beach/Ocean Safety:There are many fun, dog friendly spots on San Diego’s beaches. If you and your canine plan to partake in the fun make sure you are doing it safely. Pet should have access to somewhere they can rest as well as fresh water. If your pet is still learning to swim, avoid areas with waves in favor of shallower areas with calmer water such as bays. If you plan to take your pet into deeper water on a paddle board, kayak, or boat, make sure they have a life jacket to ensure a safe and easy rescue if they get over excited at sea. If your pet is going into the water, watch out for rip currents and strong waves. Even experienced doggy swimmers can need help, so always supervise your pet at the beach.

House GOP moves to end money for new body scanners

first_imgWASHINGTON (AP) — House Republicans controlling the Transportation Security Administration’s purse strings are moving to cut off new funding for those advanced airport scanners that have sparked outrage over their revealing images of travelers’ bodies.Draft legislation released Thursday by the Appropriations homeland security subcommittee denies the Obama administration’s $76 million request for an additional 275 of the scanners, which many travelers dislike because TSA employees can view full body images of travelers.The GOP move wouldn’t affect the 500 or so machines already in place at 78 of the nation’s airports or the 500 just funded in a recent spending bill. Efforts are under way to solve the privacy concerns with new computer software. TSA currently gives passengers the option of a pat down in private — a choice that most people find even more intrusive.Panel chairman Robert Aderholt, R-Ala., said his move was sparked by budgetary factors rather than protests from privacy advocates. And it comes as the TSA is trying hard to modify the machines so that they won’t produce revealing images. Instead, the agency is trying out new software that would have the machines read the images and alert airport screeners when there’s a potential weapon or other threat. The screener would then see the location of the threat is shown on a stick figure of the body.That technology hasn’t been proven yet, and with the new privacy software showing uneven results, Aderholt is refusing the fund additional machines.“We don’t want to skimp on security but we want to make sure that where we can make smart cuts, we do,” Aderholt said.last_img read more

A collision reported shortly before 6 a.m. today on the southbound Interstate Bridge was cleared within a half hour of the incident, but traffic remained stop-and-go from the Interstate Bridge to Hazel Dell through 9 a.m. Three collisions on state Highway 500 during the morning commute clogged the interstates, especially to Interstate 205, Washington State Patrol Trooper Will Finn said. None of the collisions resulted in injuries, nor did they block traffic for an extended period of time, Finn said. Today marked the first rain that stretched into the morning commute, with a tenth of an inch captured at Pearson Field Airport, but Finn said that most of the collisions were likely due to driver inattention. Finn reminded drivers that the morning hours of darkness are lasting a little later as summer ends, so motorists should be preparing their vehicles for winter driving conditions. “Check tire pressure and make sure to give a little more following distance,” he said. “It’s a gentle reminder that we live in the northwest and the rain is coming.”last_img read more


AK In the industrial heart of Anchorage is a warehouse full of

first_imgBird TLC’s Executive Director Guy Runco in his office beneath a stuffed golden eagle he inherited when he took over running the small non-profit (Photo: Zachariah Hughes – Alaska Public Media)In one of the most industrial stretches of the state, next to machinists, breweries and a scrap-metal recycler, is an almost-secret aviary. It’s a warehouse inhabited by loons, owls, eagles, song-birds and the occasional falcon. The Bird Treatment and Learning Center, or Bird TLC, is a non-profit that’s somewhere in between a veterinary clinic, animal shelter and a zoo. And it’s on the cusp of moving to a dramatically different new home.Listen now“This is where all the craziness begins,” Amy Kilshaw said while giving a tour one morning in November. Through a fluorescent lit front-room, beyond the bird operating ward, and past several enclosures called mews, each the size of walk-in closets, Kilshaw stood a few inches from a peregrine falcon.“This one came from Dillingham,” Kilshaw said of football-sized bird. On the other side of an opaque screen the falcon calmly stood in place, barely moving or reacting to the presence of humans.“She may have had some head trauma, because she’s just not quite all there,” Kilshaw explained. “Falcons normally are very neurotic and very high energy birds. So she is abnormally calm.”Animals are brought here from all around the state, then Kilshaw and a group of volunteer veterinarians have to work backwards to figure out what happened.“Unfortunately they don’t come in with name-tags of, ‘Hi, I’m Sam, and I hit a car.’ That would be nice,” Kilshaw laughed with a note of melancholy.Because of the falcon’s sedate demeanor, it may not be released back into the wild.“It might just be sending her to her death if we did that,” Kilshaw explained.Of the birds that can’t leave, many become educational resources, living here or at the homes of volunteers, sometimes in large outdoor mews.So far this year, Bird TLC has taken in more than six hundred birds, according to Kilshaw, which is down from 2016. Their busiest season by far is the summer, when up to 20 birds will be brought in a day, filling every available spot in the 2,300-square-foot space. Including a few chilly outdoor mews.Avian Rehabilitation Coordinator Amy Kilshaw stands in front of an aquatic mew in the warehouse where Bird TLC is based on King Street in South Anchorage (Photo: Zachariah Hughes – Alaska Public Media)“This is a juvenile bald eagle that came from…I can’t remember now,” Kilshaw said in between trilling yelps from the bird as it bounced up and down from log perches. It was either Unalaska or Kodiak, she thought. Either way, its feathers were saturated with an oily industrial substance that had so far proven impervious to conventional cleaning techniques. They might have to wait until the bird malted to release it.This is one of the only entities in Alaska that’s capable of not only of rehabilitating injured birds, but navigating tricky state and federal protocols when it comes to animals with special protected statuses, like bald eagles (the Alaska Raptor Center in Sitka handles most of the injured avians in Southeast). About half of all the birds taken in are eventually released. Some are big and majestic, but the majority are migratory fowl or tiny song-birds that have hit upon misfortune. For example a tan pine grosbeak about the size of a fist.“They’ll often eat berries that have been fermenting, and they get drunk and they hit things,” Kilshaw said of the watchful gosbeak.A small number of the accidents Bird TLC ends up treating are natural occurrences. But Kilshaw and her volunteers are primarily concerned with injuries caused by humans and the world they’ve built in bird habitats.“Ninety percent of the time it’s human caused,” Kilshaw said, pointing to attacks by domestic dogs and cats, building and car collisions, as well as accidents on roads as examples. “That’s why I do it. Because it’s not nature, it’s us. It’s human induced. So I think it’s our duty to help these birds.”As part of its educational programming, Bird TLC non-releasable animals into schools or public outreach events (during this year’s Alaska Federation of Natives Convention they provided a snowy owl to the Ukpeaġvik Iñupiat Corporation’s display booth. According to the company, the word Ukpeaġvik means “a place to hunt snowy owls.”). Part of the small non-profit’s agenda is getting tourists and residents up close with creatures they might only ever see soaring way up in the sky.A snowy owl used as an educational resource by Bird TLC at the 2017 AFN Convention in Anchorage (Photo: Zachariah Hughes – Alaska Public Media)“It’s really incredible to get to see these birds up close,” Guy Runco said. Runco is the non-profit’s executive director, and the only other paid staff member beside Kilshaw. “They’re around us all the time, we just rarely see them.”Runco is a man who seems genuinely excited about all birds. He cherishes ravens for their superior intelligence. He has kinder things to say about golden eagles than their bald scavenger cousins. And he has a special place in his heart for black-billed magpies because they are “a great family bird, they really stick together.”But his role at the center has given him a unique perspective informed by how particular species behave under human care. Swans, for example, are not ideal guests.“I think swans are big, beautiful birds, and I love it when they’re out in the wild,” Runco said, explaining that indoors they are large, temperamental, and “incredibly hard to take care of.”According to Runco, the current location on King Street in the Taku-Cambell area works because it’s easy for people to drive to, and there is a lake nearby for releasing birds back into the wild. But presently Bird TLC is focused on building a new facility further south above Potter Marsh. It’ll be 4,000 square feet, about twice the size of this current facility, with more space for rehabilitation, as well as for public engagement.The upgrade is being paid for by corporate and individual donations, as well as revenues from birds appearing at outreach events. Runco hopes they’ll be in the facility by winter of next year.last_img read more


Indian markets end lower amid global growth concerns

first_imgIndian stock markets recouped some of the initial losses to end flat on Monday following weaker American markets last week after the Federal Reserve’s decision to keep interest rates steady at record lows sparked worries about global growth.The S&P BSE Sensex ended 25.93 points, or 0.1%, lower at 26,192.98, while the broader NSE Nifty slipped 4.80 points or 0.06% to close at 7,977.10.Market observers pointed out that weak global cues emanating out of the Asian markets impacted investor sentiments.”The negative closing comes despite the fact that there was good buying in the banking and other financial services stocks. This happened due to the announcements about more operational autonomy which would be provided to the public sector banks,” Anand James, co-head, technical research desk with Geojit BNP Paribas Financial Services, told IANS.”Due to the absence of any other major domestic trigger, the markets were solely focused on the international trends. The subdued Asian markets and the lower closing of the US markets on Friday impacted investors’ sentiments here.”Among the Asian markets, Japan’s Nikkei dropped by 1.96 percent, Hong Kong’s Hang Seng fell by 0.75 percent. However, Shanghai Composite Index closed higher by 1.91 percent.Other market watchers elaborated that the global growth concerns coupled with fears of a possible US interest rate hike in the latter part of 2015 played negatively on investors’ sentiments.”The uncertainty related to the US Fed rate hike continues to worry investors coupled with growth concerns,” Vaibhav Agrawal, vice president, research, Angel Broking, told IANS.”We expect the pressure to continue ahead of the F&O (futures and options) expiry this week.”Gaurav Jain, director with Hem Securities, explained that the markets were able to close flat after paring initial losses due to increase in foreign funds’ inflows.”After opening in negative terrain on account of global cues, indices recovered from the day’s lows fuelled by renewed buying interest by foreign portfolio investors (FPIs),” Jain said.”Hopes of a rate cut by the RBI (Reserve Bank of India) kept the sentiment up on the street.”- With IANS inputslast_img read more

first_img 00:00 /13:00 Share Last year, the U.S. Treasury Department certified more than 100 communities in Harris County as “opportunity zones.” Those are areas designated as economically distressed where new investments might be eligible for federal tax incentives.The program was created by the federal Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.Gov. Greg Abbott submitted the state’s opportunity zone designations to the Treasury Department in March 2018. In a press release, Governor Abbott said:“This program will help highlight areas of Texas that are prime for business investment, and it will serve to bring more opportunities to hardworking families across the entire state. As we continue to recover after Harvey, these Opportunity Zone designations will also provide a much needed boost for local communities impacted by the storm.”But some Houston community members say they’re concerned about the potential negative impact such a designation could have on distressed, low-income areas.Florian Martin/Houston Public MediaHouston City Council Member Amanda Edwards.On Feb. 15, City Council Member Amanda Edwards is hosting a workshop for residents to learn about opportunity zones and how the program could affect their neighborhood.In the audio above, Edwards discusses her hopes and concerns regarding opportunity zones.
