first_imgNANAIMO, B.C. – Prof. Teri Derksen says an unforgettable image of children playing overdose games in a park became the vision behind a university research project to help kids whose family members have been affected by opioids.The description she heard at a recent community meeting about someone witnessing youngsters acting out an overdose at a playground in Nanaimo, B.C., led her to ask: “What about the children?”Derksen said the compelling account struck her deeply and she couldn’t let go of the thought of children trying to cope with the addictions of loved ones.“It’s stuck with me because it was such a powerful image.”Derksen said the description served as a catalyst and a constant reminder: “What are we doing?”The child and youth care professor said it also gripped several third-year students who have developed projects at Vancouver Island University focused on children, families and communities dealing with opioids.B.C. averages about four drug overdose deaths a day. The coroner’s service reported 1,436 deaths in 2017. Almost 65 per cent were in private homes or buildings.“We have to wonder how many children are in those homes,” Derksen said. “Some of these children may be witnessing, directly, the overdose.”Students Emma Gillis and Abby Lise started class practicum projects that focus on children caught in the overdose crisis. The projects include two outreach programs for children, families and others in Nanaimo to talk, meet and play in a safe area.A daycare program called Shine gathers once a week for 90 minutes of games and arts and crafts. It provides a sheltered environment where children can talk about their own experiences.The students also formed partnerships with social and government agencies to hold public meetings and offer services to families.Gillis said behind every overdose statistic is a person with family and friends who are hurting. She and Lise saw few supports for children, family members and others close to opioid users, she said.“We really do need to really shine light on the impact on children,” said Gillis. “They have, a little bit, slipped through the cracks. Why are we not spending more of those preventative measures on children? Why are we not gearing them towards children?”Carrie Barker, a director at Nanaimo and Area Services for Families, said the opioid crisis goes deeper than just the individuals using drugs.“What’s bursting the bubble here is that it’s happening so broadly across the community,” she said. “This project is phenomenal because it’s saying: What about the children, and how are we considering how they may be impacted by this?”Children find ways to cope, but they suffer, Barker said.“There are children grieving the loss of a loved one,” she said. “There are those on the other end of the spectrum who are hearing every time the radio goes on more statistics about people in their community who have died.“All children in the community are impacted by the health and well-being of their neighbours, families and community members.”Stephanie McCune, an Island Health substance use expert and instructor at Vancouver Island University, said the programs help to move the focus of the opioid crisis beyond individuals.“Where do we go from here?” she asked. “How are children thriving, surviving? What are communities doing that is acknowledging the role and impact on families? It’s a different part of the conversation.”B.C.’s Ministry of Children and Family Development said the safety and well-being of children is its priority.“We know that the opioid epidemic has had a devastating impact on families and communities throughout the province and we have taken a number of steps to respond to the crisis,” it said in a statement.It cited a plan to help caregivers, practitioners and support staff respond to youth at risk, or parents who might be using illicit drugs. It also provides direction and access to training on how to use the overdose-reversing drug naloxone.last_img read more

first_imgX-Files star Gillian Anderson took action this week to help horses abused in New York City’s horse-drawn-carriage industry.The actress wrote to members of the New York City Council, urging them to vote for a new bill that will see horses restricted to Central Park.“I love New York, but I’m astonished that the city still allows shackled horses to dodge taxis, buses, and police cars every day,” wrote Gillian. “That’s why I’m urging council members to vote yes on Intro 573B, the bill that would limit the operation of horse-drawn carriages to Central Park. Last year’s police report on the dozens of awful accidents involving horse-drawn carriages was no surprise.“The New York Times’ editorial board wrote the following: ‘Why should carriage horses be allowed in midtown or downtown or uptown or anywhere that exposes them to screeching brakes and loud honks? The tourist will surely be happier behind a horse that’s clip-clopping peacefully through the trees than behind one trembling in a seething mass of taxis. All drivers will be a lot happier, too, without horse-drawn carriages to contend with.’“That was published in 1988. Since then, congested cities as diverse as Toronto, Mumbai, and San Juan have reined in the dangerous carriage trade. Let’s do the same in New York by passing this bill, which would keep the horses in the park. It’s safer for them and for New Yorkers and would make Manhattan more enjoyable for people like me who love to visit but hate seeing the horses in traffic.”The vote takes place on Friday.last_img read more

first_imgThe Earl and Countess Spencer, along with Co-Chairs Wallis Annenberg, James Baker, Giselle Fernandez, Teri & Ken Hertz, Nina & Harvey Karp, Lauren & Richard King, Deborah Klein & Mort Marcus, Fran & John Lasker, Yana & Leon Max, and Robin & Dr. Alfredo Trento, announced today that Whole Child International will hold its inaugural fundraising gala in Los Angeles on Thursday, October 26, 2017 at the Beverly Wilshire Hotel.Sir Ken Robinson will serve as Master of Ceremonies for the event, which will include a special performance by Anthony Kiedis and Josh Klinghoffer of the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and a not-to-be-missed auction where guests will be able to bid on exclusive one-of-a-kind items.Countess Spencer founded Whole Child International in 2004 with the aim of improving the quality of care for vulnerable children worldwide. There are millions of at risk children around the world that are being raised on an assembly line, growing up in empty rooms and deprived of stable, supportive relationships. This is the plight of children in orphanages, those from low-income, at-risk families who spend most of their long days in low-quality childcare centers, and those being bounced around foster care. Whole Child International strives to elevate the quality of care to give every child the opportunity to be properly cared for and loved. The program is designed to unlock an enormously valuable resource: the power of relationships and human connection. Research has proven that in as little as two years, and without any change to nutrition or increase in the number of caregivers, children receiving the benefit of Whole Child International’s program experienced a 46% improvement in height-for-age and 34% improvement in weight-for-age, as well as overall improvement in development, including cognitive, linguistic, motor, and social-emotional development.“Since founding Whole Child International in 2004, the accomplishment I’m most proud of is that we’ve been able to demonstrate the power of human connection. We’ve been able to prove that even in the most poorest settings a refocusing of existing resources on relationship-centered care can change the life trajectory for even the most vulnerable children,” said Countess Spencer. “After 14 years of program development, implementation and research, having established how cost-effective, sustainable, and impactful our program is, we are now poised to scale our work to reach the millions of children awaiting our help globally. We are delighted to be hosting our inaugural gala at this important inflection point. It’s going to be a great night.”For more information, and to purchase tickets, interested parties can click here.last_img read more

25 May 2010A group of United Nations human rights experts today expressed concern about the suspension of a high-profile Spanish judge who had been investigating allegations regarding tens of thousands of enforced disappearances during the country’s civil war and subsequent years . Spain’s General Council of the Judiciary suspended Baltasar Garzón, an investigative judge, earlier this month as part of a criminal investigation by the Spanish Supreme Court into his actions. His case will now go to trial.Judge Garzón could be sanctioned for “knowingly exceeding his jurisdiction” by investigating a series of complaints relating to more than 100,000 cases of enforced disappearances that are alleged to have occurred during the Spanish civil war and the regime of General Francisco Franco. These cases are allegedly inadmissible because of a Spanish amnesty law introduced after General Franco’s death and the expiration of the statute of limitations.The five-member UN Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances issued a statement today in which they reminded States that they should refrain from introducing amnesty laws that would exempt the perpetrators of enforced disappearances from criminal proceedings and sanctions.“An amnesty law goes against the provision of the Declaration [on the Protection of All Persons from Enforced Disappearance] when the State ends its obligations to investigate, prosecute and punish those responsible for disappearances, even where endorsed by a referendum or similar consultation procedure,” the working group.The human rights quintet also stressed the right to truth which should be enjoyed by the families of the victims of enforced disappearances in Spain. Reconciliation between the State and the victims cannot happen without the clarification of each individual case, they added.The Working Group, set up in 1980 to help families determine the fate or whereabouts of disappeared relatives, is currently comprised of Jeremy Sarkin (Chairperson-Rapporteur), Santiago Corcuera, Jasminka Dzumhur, Olivier de Frouville and Osman El-Hajjé. read more

TORONTO — Canada’s small and medium-sized businesses were in a less optimistic mood in November compared to October, according to the Canadian Federation of Independent Business.The CFIB’s monthly business barometer index slipped to 62.9 out of 100 in November, down from 65.6 in October.Measured on a scale of 0 to 100, an index above 50 means owners expecting their businesses’ performance to be stronger in the next year outnumber those expecting a weaker performance.Index levels normally range between 65 and 70 when the economy is growing at its potential.Small business owners in Newfoundland and Labrador remain the most optimistic in the country, with an index of 74.1, followed by British Columbia at 67.1, Alberta at 68.3, Saskatchewan at 66.4 and Ontario at 63.The New Brunswick index is 61.4 and it is 61.3 in Manitoba, 60.8 in Nova Scotia, 60.2 in Quebec and the lone province below the 50 mark is Prince Edward Island at 52.1.“Small business confidence took a step backward last month, although it’s still above the levels we observed in the June-through-September period,” said Ted Mallett, CFIB’s chief economist and vice-president.“The results suggest that Canada’s economy continues to grow at a modest pace.”Mallet said much of the decline in the overall average can be explained by “unusually low confidence in natural resources, manufacturing and business services.”On the other hand, said Mallett, the consumer-facing side of the small business sector looks relatively upbeat, with retail, hospitality and personal services all showing above-average confidence.The November findings are based on 981 responses in a random sample of CFIB members replying to a controlled-access web survey. Findings are deemed accurate to plus or minus 3.1%, 19 times in 20. read more

first_imgUne opération pilote lancée pour limiter le gaspillageFrance Nature Environnement (FNE) lance une opération pilote destinée à lutter contre le gaspillage. En effet, chaque foyer jette des dizaines de kilos d’aliments chaque année, un “scandale” qui demande la mise en place de certaines mesures.Halte au gaspillage. C’est l’alerte que déclenche aujourd’hui le réseau France Nature Environnement et ses 3.000 associations par l’intermédiaire d’une opération pilote. Tout juste lancée auprès de familles et de restaurants, elle vise à lutter contre la gaspillage en les aidant à trouver des pratiques bénéfiques pour leur budget et la planète. En effet, selon les estimations de la Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), chaque famille jette entre 20 et 40 kilos d’aliments par an. Ajouté au gaspillage phénoménal de 95 kilos des restaurants (en Europe) et même au 280 kilos si on inclut les pertes à toutes les étapes de la chaîne d’approvisionnement, l’impact est colossal.Pour FNE, c’est tout simplement un “scandale éthique” dans un contexte de malnutrition, car 75% de ces aliments perdus pourraient être utilisés : produits encore emballés, restes de repas, fruits et légumes un peu abîmés, pain de la veille, liquides entamés… Mais c’est aussi “un scandale environnemental majeur” que dénonce FNE soulignant que sont “utilisés en vain” de l’espace, des pesticides, de l’eau et du pétrole. Trois sources de gaspillage sont donc directement visées par l’opération pilote : une trentaine de foyers, six restaurants et deux cantines scolaires. “On veut faire du coaching minceur de nos poubelles”, indique Benoît Hartmann, porte-parole. Après une première étape de diagnostic qui consiste à peser les aliments jetés, la lutte au gaspillage débutera. Pour Francis Meneu, qui dirige le collège de Domène (dans l’Isère), le comptage a commencé il y a trois mois. “Quand on avait une cuisine autonome, dit-il, on utilisait 4 ou 5 poubelles”, maintenant que le collège utilise les services d’une cuisine centrale, “on en remplit 8 à 10”. Celui-ci affirme même avoir vu jeter “11 barquettes de 15 tranches de rôti”. Des conseils cuisine pour limiter le gaspillageÀ lire aussiCes aliments contiennent du boeuf et des insectes, et vous en mangez sûrement tous les joursDans un deuxième temps, les participants continueront à peser les aliments jetés, mais sous contrôle d’un “coach”, membre d’une association, qui soulignera les “mauvaises pratiques” et conseillera les bonnes. Il s’agira par exemple de cuisiner des restes, d’utiliser les pommes fripées que l’on plonge dans l’eau bouillante, de mélanger des pommes aux pommes de terre pour les empêcher de germer…. Dans le même but, le Syctom (l’agence des déchets de la région parisienne) propose d’ailleurs sur son site des “fiches cuisine anti-gaspi” et quelques petits conseils pour limiter le gaspillage.Le 26 mai 2012 à 09:56 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

first_imgStill shopping for that tasteful host or hostess gift, stocking stuffers or some other perfect item to put under the tree?Worry no more.We asked a few Clark County retailers to tip us off on the season’s top gift ideas, based on what their customers ask about and what they’ve bought so far in the weeks leading up to Christmas.For the retail industry, this is a year of modest expectations. The National Retail Federation predicts holiday sales will increase by just 3.9 percent over 2012 sales and that the average consumer will spend $738 on gifts, decor and greeting cards this year, down from the $752 they spent last year.But Clark County merchants say they are already noticing busier store traffic this holiday season than in 2012. With the economy still shaky, it’s hard to predict whether local consumers will spend cautiously through the holiday season or put a bit more cash into gift-giving. Area retailers hope for more spending, of course, and they’d like to beat last year’s sales with these “must haves” of the season.The BookieWashington State University Vancouver: 14204 N.E. Salmon Creek Ave., Vancouver.studentaffairs.vancouver.wsu.edu/student-affairs/bookie-student-bookstoreHours: 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday. What’s hot: WSU sweatshirts and anything else in team crimson and gray, says Jeff Ehli, manager of WSU Vancouver’s campus bookstore, The Bookie. He believes brisk sweatshirt sales this year have been influenced by WSU’s scrappy (6-6) Cougars football team. “When the Cougars are doing better, we definitely sell more sweatshirts,” Ehli said.The team landed its first bowl game in a decade and will take on Colorado State in the Dec. 21 New Mexico Bowl. It will no doubt generate higher demand for WSU colors. The sweatshirts are priced from $33 to $55 and come in crewneck, zip-up and hooded styles. WSU Vancouver’s bookstore is located downstairs in the Student Affairs Building (the only campus building marked by an American flag). There’s also metered parking spaces, with the first 30 minutes free in the lot just under the flag.last_img read more

first_imgThis month’s IndieBox is Dust: An Elysian Tail! I don’t know anything about the game, except that it’s a few years old, was developed by one guy (the impressive Dean Dodrill), has a furry mascot character who looks like a cross between a bat and an Eevee, and it’s very pretty. Dust’s age doesn’t matter; any good indie game is worthy of the IndieBox treatment, and IndieBox agrees with me. So, here’s Dust.The usual items are here: two stickers, full-color instruction manual, two-disc soundtrack, and a sword-shaped rubber USB drive with the game on it. Very solid stuff, in a gorgeous box that has a flip-open cover with even more art.Speaking of art, the IndieBox comes with a print of one of the game’s art cells, with a certificate of authenticity. The box also includes a colorful cloth “map.” It’s not really a map. It’s more like a mural of the game world. Map implies useful information, and this map has less detail than the one in the original Castlevania.Finally, there’s a plush of Fidget, the cute Pokémon-like mascot of the game. What is it exactly? She? It’s a she? Huh. Either way, looks like an orange Eevee with wings.Next month, IndieBox goes from a game that’s four years old to one that’s only two months old. It’s Kitfox Games’ Moon Hunters, a procedural multiplayer adventure game where your decisions affect the myths you build about your heroics. Legendary heroes and the reputations they build? It makes me curious about what sort of horror show Kratos would be in this type of game.last_img read more

first_imgThe flag which has become a symbol of the spirit of ‘Indianness’ was hoisted by Naveen Jindal, Member of Parliament and President of Flag Foundation of India. The actual height of the flagpole is 207 ft and it is the heaviest flag till date made of 37 kgs of silk and 45 kgs of knitted polyester. The venue of the flag was a critical choice as the Central Park has 8 radials around Rajeev Chowk and people can come in from any point and get a prominent view of the Tiranga. Since we got to hear that the flag completed a whole year flying proudly, we tried to find some interesting facts about this tricolour. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“Flag Foundation of India’s endeavor is to encourage all Indians to be patriotic on all 365 days of the year, and not just on specific days such as the Republic Day and Independence Day. True patriotism lies in sincerely, honestly and diligently working for the flag’s honour and its respectful display,” said KV Singh, CEO, Flag Foundation of India.Reportedly, the expenses to maintain this flag include Rs 8,000-10,000 for one-time repair of the flag whenever required; Rs 64,000 for a new flag – if ever it needs replacement; and Rs 52,000 per month for three guards,  CCTV cameras installed around it, and other miscellaneous expenses.

He is the M D of Lancer Reinforcements company that is well known in the field of composites, architecture, landscaping and outdoor living products. The flag of Central Park has also been featured in various commercial cinemas of Bollywood, like Humpty Sharma Ki Dulhaniya, God Tussi Great Ho.  Figures and facts aside – the stunning flag in the hart of Central Park makes us all feel a flutter of excitement when we see it fly against the sky.

first_imgKolkata: In a unique initiative, Calcutta Medical College and Hospital (CMCH) authorities have decided to organise ‘Puja Parikrama’ — where the children undergoing treatment at various departments in the hospital would be taken to various Puja pandals.According to the hospital sources, apart from the children suffering from Thallassemia many others at Oncology and Pediatric Medicine would be given an opportunity to see the idols at various Puja pandals. The children, who are in the hospital for over 5 months, hardly get any scope to step out of the four walls of the hospital room. During Durga Puja, when the entire state celebrates the home coming of Goddess Durga with her entourage from her abode, people indulge in pandal hopping wearing new dresses. But many children who are on hospital beds find it difficult to remain confined within the hospital during the Puja days. Keeping this in mind, CMCH has come up with the unique idea of arranging a ‘Puja Parikrama’ where children will be able to go out and enjoy pandal hopping, will have own fun their outside the hospital. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeSources at CMCH said as many as 30 patients will be given the opportunity. Parents of these children will be able to accompany them to the puja pandals. The journey would start from CMCH campus at around 10 am on the day of Sasthi. They would be taken to various Puja pandals including Md Ali Park, College Square, Santoshmitra Square. Along with the senior officials of the hospital, Rogi Kalyan Samity Chairman of CMCH, Dr Nirmal Majhi, is expected to take part in the event. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedMeanwhile, it may be mentioned that a children park would also be inaugurated in the morning of Sasthi by Dr Maji. The children’s park has been constructed outside the Hematology department of the hospital with all the basis amenities so that children coming to the department with various blood related ailments can spend some quality time with his/her family members.The main purpose behind the idea is to ensure that children who come to the department with rare blood diseases can enjoy. This will reduce the stress of patients and help them overcome monotonous lives. Children can take a stroll in and around the park, spend some quality time with their parents.last_img read more

first_imgThe first phase of the National Health Scheme (Gesy) will kick in on June 1 no matter what and everyone is working full speed to meet that goal, an official said on Tuesday.According to the deputy director of the Health Insurance Organisation (HIO), Efi Kamitsi, a lot of work is being done to meet the June 1 goal, which is the introduction of outpatient care.“The HIO’s goal is clear, we have to implement this system,” Kamitsi told the Cyprus News Agency.Contributions for Gesy started in March 1, she said, while beneficiaries will be called in to register under Gesy and choose their family physicians (GPs), after HIO signs contracts with the doctors registered to work as GPs.For the system to work smoothly, around 350 GPs are needed. So far, she said, over 300 GPs have registered. “We believe there won’t be a problem as regards GPs.” As regards specialists, registration is ongoing, she said.She added that there are timeframes that will not change and the goal is for all preparatory work to be completed before that date to ensure a smooth transition to the new phase of public healthcare, Gesy.“As of June 1, we will all start taking (healthcare) services and gradually glitches in the system will be ironed out,” she said.Meanwhile, the HIO has reportedly decided to introduce a regulation to allow Turkish Cypriots who work in the government-controlled areas to be entitled to Gesy coverage, as well as the enclaved.According to the law on Gesy, only persons residing within the Republic of Cyprus and the British bases and who pay contributions are entitled to coverage by Gesy.Daily Politis reported that the HIO board has recently decided to add a special regulation to include Turkish Cypriots who may reside permanently in the north but are working in the government-controlled areas and their dependents, and the enclaved with their dependents.Currently, only Turkish Cypriots who have social insurance contributions are entitled to free healthcare coverage in the public sector. According to the current criteria as regards public healthcare beneficiaries that have been in effect since August 1, 2013, Cypriot and EU citizens who permanently reside in Cyprus are eligible to apply for a health card entitling them to subsidised state health care only if they have paid in at least three years’ social insurance (contributions do not have to be continuous), and have complied with all their tax obligations.As of June 1, when the first phase of Gesy kicks in, the public will be able to receive outpatient services from GPs, specialists but also medicine and lab tests, Kamitsi said.“There will be problems of course because this is a huge reform,” she said, adding that it will take some time for things to run smoothly as everyone will need an adjustment period. Both patients and healthcare providers will gradually learn how to use and work with the system.Kamitsi said that an information campaign is already underway on everything one needs to know about the new health system and that members of the public may also find information on the Gesy website.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)UndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
