I want to use my voice to help others Manitoba politician reveals

first_imgWINNIPEG – After decades of silence and frequent self-blame, Manitoba’s minister for the status of women has come forward about being a survivor of sexual assault so she can help others realize there is a way to heal.Rochelle Squires, 47, told The Canadian Press she was raped when she was 13 and felt she couldn’t tell anyone.“In the 34 years since then, every day of my life has been a journey — sometimes a journey towards recovery; sometimes a journey back into darkness,” Squires said after making a statement in the legislature to mark Sexual Assault Awareness Month Tuesday.“I have gone back in my mind … hundreds of thousands of times and talked to that 13-year-old girl and said to her: ‘It’s not your fault and you’re going to be OK,’” she said, her voice quavering.“And now that work is done. I don’t need to tell that 13-year-old girl anymore, and so I want to use my voice to help others.”Squires said she never went to police and stayed silent until she was well into her 30s and discussed it with a therapist.“I felt overwhelmingly at fault, even at that age,” she said. “It’s a question I still have unanswered in my own mind. Why did I feel to blame?”Squires did not identify the perpetrator, but said it was someone she had to continue to deal with on occasion.After her teenage years, she had several careers, including journalism, before becoming a politician. She was elected as a Progressive Conservative in 2016 and now, with a seat at the provincial cabinet table, she feels she can make a difference for victims of sexual assault.She favours third-party reporting that allows complainants to tell their stories to a community victim-services group, which deals with police without revealing identities.British Columbia already offers that option and the Manitoba government has been looking at following suit.“I believe that will make a strong difference in so many lives if we have a place for people to go and share their testimony … and yet not have to immediately go to a police station and fill out (a) report.”Squires also said societal attitudes have to change.“As victims, we know intrinsically that something bad happened to us and it’s not our fault. But then we look for cues in society — whether it be friends, social circles, judges, historic cases, the media — and … the message we hear over and over and over again is: ‘It kind of is your fault.’“And then we internalize that trauma. And we bury it.”last_img read more

During her tenure, Ambassador Ranaraja played a key role in elevating Sri Lanka-Philippines relations to new heights, particularly in the fields of agriculture, defense, higher education and tourism after assumption of duties as the Ambassador in the Philippines in 2015. She also initiated a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) for Political Consultation, which was signed in February 2016, a significant milestone in the diplomatic relations between Sri Lanka and the Philippines. Two rounds of political consultations were held in 2016 and 2018, which has paved way to consolidate the existing friendly relations between the two countries. With the rank of Grand Cross (Datu), gold distinction, the Order of Sikatuna has been awarded to Ambassador Ranaraja in recognition of her major contributions in further strengthening the cordial relations between Sri Lanka and the Philippines as well as her role in facilitating the State Visit of President Maithripala Sirisena to the Philippines in January 2019 which opened a new chapter of enhanced and robust relations between the two countries. Ambassador Ranaraja was also instrumental for the fruitful outcomes of the State Visit undertaken by President Maithripala Sirisena to the Philippines in January 2019.Ambassador Ranaraja who is a member of the 1996 batch of the Sri Lanka Foreign Service has served in different capacities at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Sri Lanka’s Diplomatic Missions. Before her appointment as Sri Lanka’s Ambassador to the Philippines, she was the Director General for Africa Division in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. She has also worked at the Embassies of Sri Lanka in Belgium and the European Union, Thailand, Russian Federation, and Italy. The Ministry of Foreign Affairs congratulated Ambassador Ranaraja on the prestigious achievement and commended her contributions towards uplifting Sri Lanka-Philippines relations. Ambassador of Sri Lanka to the Philippines, Aruni Ranaraja was conferred the Order of Sikatuna, with the rank of Grand Cross (Datu), gold distinction by President of the Philippines, Rodrigo Roa Duterte on 18 June 2019 during a farewell call paid by the Ambassador at the Malacañan Palace in Manila, the Foreign Ministry said today.The Order of Sikatuna was established in 1953 and is conferred by the President of the Philippines to give recognition to individuals who have rendered exceptional and meritorious services to the Republic of the Philippines and to diplomats, officials and nationals of foreign States who have rendered conspicuous services in fostering, developing, and strengthening relations between their country and the Philippines as well as personnel of the Department of Foreign Affairs, both in the Home Office and in the Foreign Office. read more

Skilled immigrant backlog declining will be eliminated by next year Kenney

TORONTO – The Harper government says a backlog of skilled immigrant applications, which has clogged the system for years, is declining rapidly and will be eliminated by the end of next year.Immigration Minister Jason Kenney says about 100,000 applications are still in the system, compared with 640,000 just a few years ago.He told a news conference the eradication of the waiting list means a new immigrant labour pool from which employers and provinces can choose will be established ahead of schedule.The backlog was culled by a measure in last spring’s contentious omnibus bill, which threw out 280,000 applications filed prior to 2008, a controversial move that saw the federal government refund $130 million in application fees.Without flushing the system, it was estimated the backlog wouldn’t be cleared until 2017, but the decision is being challenged in court by lawyers who plan to launch a class-action lawsuit on behalf of people whose applications were expelled.Kenney says by the end of next year, the government will be able to process skilled immigrant applications within a year, rather than eight years, which had become the norm.He says the reforms are “finally unshackling Canada from the outrageous backlogs and wait times of the past” and will bring people who are likely to find and keep good jobs into the country.“The system had become totally dysfunctional. It was broken, and it was getting worse,” Kenney said. “Strong action was necessary.”The Conservatives in 2008 imposed limits on the number of skilled immigrant applications they would accept and with that action alone, Kenney says, the backlog was sliced in half.Kenney has also announced that Canada plans to admit between 53,500 to 55,300 new Canadians in 2013 under the revamped federal skilled worker program, which will be geared more toward accepting young people.Overall immigration targets will remain frozen at between 240,000 and 265,000. by The Canadian Press Posted Nov 2, 2012 5:59 pm MDT Skilled immigrant backlog declining, will be eliminated by next year: Kenney AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

UN calls for full swift implementation of European proposals for refugee crisis

“The proposed relocation scheme for 160,000 refugees from Greece, Italy and Hungary would go a long way to address this crisis,” William Spindler, a spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), said during a press briefing in Geneva. “Our initial estimates indicate even higher needs, but the focus must now be on ensuring that all Member States take part in this initiative, and that it is swiftly implemented. When relocating them, refugees’ needs, preferences and specific qualifications should be taken into account to the extent possible,” he added.UNHCR said the relocation scheme can only succeed if it is accompanied by large-scale emergency reception, assistance and registration efforts in the countries most impacted by arrivals, particularly Greece, Hungary and Italy. To support these countries, it underlined that the EU should mobilize its asylum, migration, and civil protection agencies and mechanisms, including the resources of member States, with the support of UNHCR, the International Organization for Migration (IOM) and civil society. “When disembarking in Europe or entering the European Union, refugees must find a welcoming environment and immediate response to their basic needs,” Mr. Spindler stated. UNHCR also welcomed the reference to opening legal channels for migration and encouraged member States to expand these legal avenues for refugees, through enhanced resettlement and humanitarian admission, family reunification, humanitarian visas, and other schemes. With more legal alternatives to reach safety in Europe, the agency said fewer people in need of international protection will be forced to resort to smugglers and undertake dangerous irregular journeys.Meanwhile, while calling for strong measures to be taken against people traffickers and smugglers, UNHCR insisted that the management of borders needs to be consistent with national, EU and international law, including guaranteeing the right to seek asylum.Mr. Spindler further underlined that UNHCR supports States implementing effective return policies for individuals found not to have a valid protection claim and who cannot benefit from alternative legal means to regularise their stay. “These persons should be assisted to return quickly to their home countries, in full respect of their human rights,” he stated. UNHCR added it is pleased to see a reference in the Commission’s proposals to the critical need to address the root causes of forced displacement around the world.“A comprehensive response to refugee situations needs diplomacy, political will, and concerted action for the prevention, as well as resolution, of conflicts that force people to move,” the spokesperson continued. “Greater investment in conflict prevention and resolution as well as durable solutions should therefore form an integral part of Europe’s comprehensive approach to addressing forced displacement.”In addition, efforts to address the root causes of the refugee crisis should include increased funding for humanitarian assistance to refugees and economic support to hosting countries, most notably around Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Eritrea and Somalia, he stated. UNHCR reported it is already ramping up its capacity in all countries affected by the current refugee flows and said it is ready to fully support all measures by the European Union in effectively responding to the present crisis.Also today, the UN Committee on the Rights of the Child expressed its deep concern at the current migration crisis in Europe, and underscored that the “continued shocking images that ricochet around the world do not tell the full extent of the devastating, and at times irreversible, impact” on children.Ahead of the 14 September meeting in Brussels dedicated to the situation of migration outside and inside the European Union, the Committee urged EU Ministers to adopt a child rights-based approach when planning, discussing and implementing the measures designed to strengthen the European response. “All European States have ratified the UN Convention on the Rights of the Child, and have committed to ensuring rights to all children that come under their jurisdiction irrespective of their legal status, and without discrimination of any kind,” said the Committee’s Chairperson, Benyam Dawit Mezmur. He underlined that the majority of these children have already experienced human rights violations before leaving their countries of origin, and subjecting them to yet more violations within European borders through laws and treatment that are not child-friendly constitutes an additional serious violation of Convention obligations.“The obligation to respect and protect the right of the child to freedom from all forms of violence – physical or mental, intentional or non-intentional – needs to be upheld by all branches of governments,” Mr. Mezmur added, noting increasing visual evidence of police and other authorities acting in ways that may physically harm or traumatize migrant children. He added that the Committee expects all governments to fully commit to placing at the heart of their responses their legal obligations towards children in a migration situation. read more

Research study to examine weight change and other firstyear health issues

Brock University Kinesiology researchers Aysha Thomas, left, and Kayleigh Beaudry use body metric ultrasound equipment to test volunteer Amanda McKinnon. Participants in the Brock Transition Study will undergo similar testing to measure how the first year of university affects them.A Brock University research study hopes to find out why adding pounds of bodyweight in the first year of university is so common it has its own moniker.The ‘Freshman 15’, as the phenomenon is known, is one focus of the Brock Transition Study, which looks at the impact the transition from high school to university has on the body.Researchers from Brock’s Department of Kinesiology want to examine how the first year of university affects students’ nutrition, exercise and sleep habits, as well as stress levels, body composition, body image and mental health.The study, led by Kinesiology Assistant Professor Andrea Josse and her two graduate students, is looking for first-year Brock University students between the ages of 17 and 20. First-year students can participate in the study as soon as they show up on campus in September.“This phenomenon of the transition is talked about a lot, but it’s a little bit elusive,” said Josse. “There’s a whole host of changes we know students undergo during their first year of university. They’re away from home, they don’t have the same amount of support that they had before and there are a lot of stresses that are new to them.”“Because of that, we know a lot of things can change, so we’re looking at how this transition from high school to university and during the first year of university affects our students here at Brock.”She said the study will give the researchers a good overview of what Brock students go through from both a physical and psychological perspective.“Our goal is to finish collecting these data, figure out what’s actually going on and then work to implement different programs or strategies to mitigate these negative changes or issues. Our ultimate goal is to improve the experience of our undergraduate students throughout their time at Brock.”While the study may seem related to the long-running Stressed@Brock study, that research study followed a single group of students through their four years of university and two years of post-university life. The Brock Transition Study, which first launched last year with 60 students, will examine a new group of students each year.Brock University Kinesiology Assistant Professor Andrea Josse.Josse’s two graduate students will write separate theses using the research data. Kayleigh Beaudry will focus on the nutrition aspect of the data while Aysha Thomas will examine the physical activity and exercise angle.For study participants, there will be two separate test sessions, first in September to get some baseline data and then again in March to see what changes may have occurred.For more information on the study or to get involved, contact brocktransitionstudy@gmail.com read more

Ohio State Pride Night aims to raise awareness advocacy for LGBT Community

“You can play,” was the message some fans sported on their shirts during the Ohio State men’s hockey team’s second annual Pride Night.Executive Director of the You Can Play Project and former NFL player, Wade Davis, spoke Saturday at the Schottenstein Center before the Ohio State men’s hockey team (11-6-1, 1-2-1) took on Michigan State (6-10-3, 0-2-2).You Can Play is an organization that seeks to bring equality, respect and safety to all athletes regardless of their sexual orientation. Before the game, which ended in a 1-1 tie with Michigan State winning the shootout, Davis spoke about the challenges he faced as a gay athlete.“I didn’t have the courage to exist in the world as I really was,” Davis said. “The safest place for me was with my teammates because I wasn’t thinking about the idea that I was gay.”It was that mindset that led Davis to his involvement with You Can Play. Davis said that when it comes to sports, one’s race, gender, ethnicity or sexual orientation should not matter.“You Can Play addresses the idea that athletes really don’t care about your sexuality,” Davis said. “They only care about if you can help the team win.”The Board Room in the basement of the Schottenstein Center filled up at 5 p.m. with hockey fans, students and families who came out to support OSU’s partnership with Gay Hockey Ohio in an effort to show the university’s commitment to ensure equality amongst all athletes. At Pride Night, Davis spoke about how his experience being open about his orientation as an athlete has been both “liberating and awful.”“There is a common misconception that sports culture is a culture that is really homophobic, but actually in a lot of ways, sports is one of the few places where athletes are used to dealing with someone who is different,” Davis said.Pride Night aimed to raise awareness and advocacy among both athletes and students at OSU through team videos expressing support of the You Can Play Project.A video message from Mayor Michael Coleman played on the jumbotron opened the game in support of the project and OSU’s decision to promote the program.“Tonight is about our sportsmanship and the strength and diversity of our community. These are values we embrace and honor right here in Columbus,” Coleman said in the video. “I take pleasure that we celebrate this kind of diversity.”Davis said a huge idea that You Can Play stresses to athletes is that they need to treat each other with respect regardless of their sexual orientation in order to help other athletes play freely and openly.There was also a silent auction held prior to the game to help raise money for the project. A hockey stick signed by current Columbus Blue Jackets goalie Sergei Bobrovsky and other signed merchandise was available to purchase.Brooke Cartus, a second-year law student at OSU’s Moritz College of Law, said OSU is the first Big Ten university to host a pride night. Cartus is the co-chair of The Outlaws, an organization within Moritz that seeks to understand legal issues that affect the gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgender communities. She called the organization “an opportunity for open communication and education.”Ben Brown, a first-year in agricultural engineering, supported the project along with many other students who attended the hockey game.“If you have a love for the sport, it shouldn’t matter your orientation and if you’re good at the sport, it shouldn’t matter,” Brown said. read more

Shakespeare theatre producer discovers shock relation to First Folio publisher

James explained that there are several different spellings of his surname, but all variations can be traced back to the same family, in which Henry Condell is a member.750 copies were thought to have been printed by Condell and his partner in the 1600s, while 235 are known to still exist. In 2006 a near-perfect First Folio was sold at Sotheby’s for £2.8 million.In total, it is thought that Shakespeare wrote 37 plays, 36 of which can be found in the First Folio and most of which were performed in the Globe, the open-air playhouse on the bank of the River Thames in London.This summer the 13-sided Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre, which has three tiers of  covered seating and an open courtyard, will host Macbeth, A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Richard III and Romeo and Juliet.The playhouse is inspired by the original, which was built in 1587 on the southbank of the River Thames in London and threatened by the Globe when it was built in 1599 by Lord Chamberlain’s men. Cundall said: “We have tried to bring a little bit of Bankside, where Rose Theatre was located, to our audience.”We have animal pens, a village pond, wagons and carts and an array of vintage farming implements, evoking a bygone rural age. “Visitors to the village can also enjoy a stunning Elizabethan garden with ornate box-edged beds of cottage flowers, roses and herbs.”Heather Carter, Blenheim’s Operations Director, said: “The palace has always been a venue for theatre. The fourth duke used to put on plays in the orangery and invite people to watch.”Part of the audience is in the open air, which means they are able to hear the birds sing and feel the heat of the sun, in the same way people would have done hundreds of years ago.” Lovely full house for #TwelfthNight @ShakespearesRT pic.twitter.com/bxBHQ5O0Sg— Eamonn O’Dwyer (@EamonnODwyer) June 30, 2019 A theatre producer who has brought the Elizabethan era to York City Centre and Blenheim Palace has discovered that he is related to the man who published Shakespeare’s First Folio.James Cundall MBE, the founder of the new Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre is staging four of the poet’s plays in the grounds of the Oxfordshire country home and near the 13th Century Clifford’s Tower, York this Summer.But until he bumped into a distant relative in America, the Yorkshireman had no idea that he had an even stronger link to Shakespeare.Cundall, 62, learned he was a direct descendant of the actor Henry Condell, one of two men responsible for publishing the first ever collection of Shakespeare’s work in 1623.The First Folio was collated and finally released seven years after Shakespeare’s death. “It really is a wonderful thing to be able to lay claim to, and a fantastic anecdote,” Cundall, Chief Executive of Lunchbox Productions and founder of Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre said.He said he discovered the link by accident when talking to a man that shared his surname in California.The theatre producer added: “[The man] explained that the Cundalls in all probability have a very important ancestor in common, one of two men who published the First Folio. I did some research of my own and it all seemed to add up.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Kate Beaufoy Who cares about the carers I was a fit fifty

first_imgKate Beaufoy: ‘Who cares about the carers? I was a fit fifty when I took on a job of care. I nearly cracked up’ Throughout the country, women in their sixties (an estimated 66% of unpaid caregivers are female) are bathing and dressing and feeding infant grandchildren and ageing parents, writes author Kate Beaufoy. 19 Comments By Kate Beaufoy Mar 5th 2017, 7:30 PM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article IT’S ALL OVER the news now. A decade ago there were murmurs in the media about the ageing demographic and the problems that would arise when the tsunami hit. But nobody was keen to talk about it, as if by remaining silent the problem would go away.At that time I was caring for an elderly relative and I would avidly read any newspaper articles I happened upon, because it gave me a sense of reassurance, a feeling like that described by CS Lewis: “What? You too? I thought I was the only one!”Remember when cancer was the bête noire? Once upon a time it was known as “the C word”, until everyone knew someone who was suffering, and then it suddenly became okay to talk about it. Now we’re talking about dementia. The incidence of diseases like Alzheimers and vascular dementia is on the rise, and it looks as unstoppable as Hokusai’s wave.What is being spoken about less frequently is the role of the carer. In a particularly invidious form of scapegoatism, politicians have stepped forward to heap guilt on families who can’t take on the responsibility of looking after their elderly.Again and again we are told that growing old is to be “celebrated”, that we have “challenges” to face.The dictionary.com definition of “challenge” is “difficulty in a job or undertaking that is stimulating to one engaged in it.”When did that beautiful word become a euphemism for a backbreaking, heartrending, gut-wrenching dilemma to which there is no facile solution?Worn down by the challengeA recent Panorama programme on BBC told the story of a man whose son flew back to his hometown of LA after abandoning his 76-year-old father in the UK, a practice that has become known as “granny-dumping”.When a habit becomes so prevalent that it’s acquired a nickname, the inference in this case is that thousands upon thousands of families have become so worn down by “challenges” that societal expectations or duties of care no longer affect them. Dereliction is seen as the only way out.So what about those who are bothered, who really, really are concerned and anxious and stressed to the nth degree about their ageing parents or grandparents, but who simply don’t have the time or the money or the resources to cope? Or those who are hampered by geographical constraints?Or those who lack the education or the computer skills to deal with the bureaucracy involved in seeking help? Or those who have other dependents who are equally vulnerable?The costs of care Source: Shutterstock/Ocskay BenceWhen I was much younger I used to watch scary movies on television, peeping at the screen from between my fingers. Now documentaries about care homes make me do the same thing. I suck in my breath as I look away, then back again, awash with pity and fear.In a recent investigative report one family was being charged £2,000 a week for 24/7 “care”, which was heartbreakingly substandard.On Woman’s Hour last week a woman was paying £70 per hour for respite care; many more are scraping by on a paltry allowance.And in the meantime women in their sixties (an estimated 66% of unpaid caregivers are female) are bathing and dressing and feeding infant grandchildren and ageing parents.In thousands of homes all over the country, shopping lists are being drawn up that include Huggies Pull-Up nappies (the ones with Disney princesses are €33.60 for 80) and Staydry pants (€64.99 for 80 medium/large).And here’s the thing. Who is helping these women? Who cares about the carers? I know from experience what a tough job it is: I was a fit fifty when I took on a job of care for just three weeks, and it is no exaggeration to say that I nearly cracked up.In my novel, The Gingerbread House, the narrator makes the following observation: https://jrnl.ie/3255659 Share315 Tweet Email5 Kate Beaufoy I wonder how many forty and fifty and even sixty-something women are caring for their parents? Maybe loads of these women have just finished rearing a family, and have been looking forward to their newfound freedom. Maybe – now that there’s a new miracle drug that they say will postpone the menopause – in the not-too-distant future, fifty-something-year old women will be breastfeeding their babies and spoon-feeding their mothers at the same time?Vital that we rethink the way we handle intergenerational careThe paradigm has to shift. While researching a recent article for the Sunday Telegraph, I put up a post on Facebook asking friends to contact me via Private Messenger if they had experiences to share.I was inundated with stories from women at their wits’ end, women who were feeling helpless and depressed and angry and lonely and inadequate, feeling as if they were beneath notice.These feelings are compounded by the guilt induced every time they are confronted by pictures in the media of comely carers holding the hands of beautiful, snowy-haired elders, smiling into each others’ eyes against a blue-sky background.And when they turn away from their screens to re-engage with reality, they wonder how and why it all went so wrong for them.The Gingerbread House by Kate Beaufoy is published by Black & White.

Fords SelfBraking Trolley Takes the Stress Out of Grocery Shopping

first_img Few things in life are more anxiety-inducing than rounding the corner of a grocery store aisle.Just thinking of the impending cart collisions makes me shiver.Thankfully, Ford Europe’s newest concept could help end the suffering and usher in a new era of supermarket shopping.Inspired by its Pre-Collision Assist technology, the automaker designed a “Self-Braking Trolley.”Just as a Ford vehicle relies on a front-facing camera and radar to detect other cars, pedestrians, and cyclists on the road, the prototype cart uses a sensor to scan ahead for people and objects, then automatically apply the brakes when a potential impact is detected.“Parents often dread supermarket shopping because they are trying to get a job done and kids just want to play,” according to parenting expert Tanith Carey.“Children love to copy adults and experiment with feeling more in control,” she continued. “When they push a trolley, to their minds, it’s like they are behind the wheels of a car—with long, wide supermarket aisles as their racetrack.”The self-breaking trolley is part of Ford’s Interventions series—a growing suite of hypothetical real-world applications for in-car tech.Ford’s Self-Braking Trolley (via Ford Europe)In December, the firm unveiled a prototype noise-cancelling kennel, using the same technology found in cars and headphones to protect sensitive canine ears during loud fireworks displays.And I’ve had my eye on the lane-keeping smart bed: a revolving mattress which, just as Ford’s Lane-Keeping Aid avoids accidents by “nudging” the steering wheel in the correct direction, gently shifts bed hogs back into position.“Pre-Collision Assist technology can help our customers avoid accidents or mitigate the effects of being involved in a collision,” Ford marketing director Anthony Ireson said in a statement. “We thought that showing how similar thinking could be applied to a shopping trolley would be a great way to highlight what can be a really useful technology for drivers.”More on Geek.com:Ford Wants to Design Cars With Virtual Reality SketchesFord’s Sweaty Robot Butt Tests Car Seat DurabilityFord Wants to Remove New Car Odors by ‘Heating Up’ Vehicles Stay on target Watch: Electric Ford F-150 Prototype Tows Over a Million PoundsFord Secretly Designed a Pickup Truck Emoji last_img read more

Arun Jaitley hints at privatisation of IDBI Bank stock gains 16

first_imgPublic sector lender IDBI Bank gained the maximum on the BSE on Monday in response to Finance Minister Arun Jaitley’s announcement in the Budget 2016-17 that the government was ready to cut down its stake below 50 percent, effectively privatise the state-owned bank.The stock was up by almost 16 percent after the announcement from its previous close of Rs 55.65 and was trading at Rs 63.40 at around 1.15 p.m., a gain of 13.9 percent.”The government has option to reduce stake in IDBI Bank to below 50 percent,” Jaitley said while presenting the Narendra Modi government’s third budget on Monday.The government currently holds about 80 percent in the bank, according to the entity’s Dec. 31, 2015, filing to the stock exchanges. The bank had reported a net loss of Rs 2,184 crore for the quarter ended December 2015, as against a net profit of Rs 103 crore in the year-ago period.Provisioning of Rs 3,723 crore for bad loans during the quarter dented the bank’s profit, as was the case with most of the public sector banks in the third quarter as a result of the clean-up effort directed by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) as part of its Asset Quality Review initiative.The bank’s income declined to Rs 7,361.86 crore in Q3 from Rs 7,935.99 crore in the corresponding period last fiscal, according to a regulatory filing with the stock exchanges. The bank’s net interest margin rose to 1.96 percent from 1.83 percent.last_img read more

June 17, 2009 – Sanford Children’s Hospital is the first children’s facility in the U.S. to offer new CT technology to patients that significantly reduces a child’s radiation exposure during a CT scan. The new Adaptive Statistical Iterative Reconstruction (ASIR) technology works with GE’s 64-slice CT scanner to reduce radiation levels by 30-40 percent while still providing quality images. Prior to adding the technology, Sanford Children’s physicians and radiologists were already manually reducing radiation levels by 30 percent. Combining ASIR with these Sanford protocols means around a 60 percent reduced exposure to patients compared to the original CT scanner.

With this new technology, we can administer just the dose needed to achieve quality images.” “We believe in ‘imaging gently’ to achieve quality images,” added O’Brien. “Having this technology in two locations is another example of the quality investments Sanford Children’s makes for the future and health of our young patients.” Video Player is loading.Pierre Qian explains radiotherapy to ablate VTPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 7:34Loaded: 2.19%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -7:34 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Ordinary hero says EU cooperation succeeded in combating human trafficking

first_imgBy Evie AndreouONE of the island’s youngest police officers chosen to represent Cyprus as part of the EU-wide ‘local hero’ campaign, says that cooperation at European Union level is critical for solving and preventing human trafficking.Georgios Thoma, 32, has been selected as an ‘ordinary hero’ in the ‘EU Protects’ campaign that aims to highlight the work done by local heroes in communities across the bloc by addressing problems that go beyond national borders, whether organised crime, food safety  or climate change.Despite his young age, Thoma has been a police officer during the past 12 years and for the last four has served at the police Office for Combating Human Trafficking which marks the World Day against Trafficking in Persons on Tuesday, July 30.According to the EU Protects campaign, “thanks to his work and the work of other ‘ordinary heroes’ and professionals from other countries, the EU is fighting more efficiently against human trafficking, helping police officers collect and share evidence and make arrests.”For Thoma however, it is teamwork that produces results.“Success is the result of teamwork. I just represent my colleagues who are ‘everyday heroes’,” Thoma told the Sunday Mail.He can’t stress enough how crucial cooperation among EU authorities and agencies is for solving and preventing human trafficking cases.“It would have been impossible to solve such cases without EU contribution and cooperation,” he said.Thoma explained that cases concerning human trafficking have three phases: recruiting of victims in their own countries, their transfer to a transit country, and arrival at their final destination and exploitation.“In these cases, we almost always have suspects in three different countries.”The fact that Cyprus is an EU member state, but also due to its geographical position, he said, contributes significantly to being a destination for migratory flows and, at the same time, for victims of human trafficking.Among the operations Thoma took part in was a joint investigation in 2017 organised by Eurojust, the European judicial cooperation agency, which led to the dismantling of a human trafficking and sexual exploitation network operating in Cyprus and Bulgaria.At the time, the Office for Combating Human Trafficking was investigating a case concerning the sexual exploitation of young women in two apartments in Limassol and Larnaca. The case concerned the recruitment and transport of these women from Bulgaria to Cyprus for their sexual exploitation.The police asked Europol’s assistance to seek the help from other countries and from Bulgaria to solve the case, he said.“It emerged that Bulgarian authorities had also launched investigations concerning the specific crime ring,” he said. Following consultations with Europol, a meeting was arranged at Eurojust where the two countries’ joint investigation team was set up.Following coordination, he said, an operation was launched in November 2017 that led to the arrest of five suspects and the rescue of nine women who were forced into prostitution against their will. The five suspects were led before justice in Bulgaria.Sham marriages and forced labourBut sexual exploitation is just another form of human trafficking that also includes among other things sham marriages and forced labour, he said.According to Thoma, human trafficking is a lucrative affair and is constantly evolving making its identification and combating a huge challenge for the police, the states involved and the societies in which it develops.He added that local networks of intermediaries working with traffickers are responsible for finding the mode of transport, escorts, employers and the place of residence of the victims while many legal businesses and offices work with the human trafficking groups.These may be travel agencies, employment offices, law firms, model agencies, match making offices and more, he said, adding that victims are being promoted, amongst others, in construction companies, various entertainment centres, pubs, massage institutes as well as in the agricultural sector.“Consequently, a number of theoretically ‘legitimate’ businesses can also be part of the circuit, ” Thoma said.For all these reasons and many more, it is difficult for one to put an exact number to victims of human trafficking.He said that the European statistical office Eurostat in 2015 recorded that 30,146 persons were identified as victims of trafficking in EU countries between 2010 and 2012. The majority – 66 per cent – were victims of sexual exploitation, 20 per cent victims of exploitation, and the rest were victims of other forms of exploitation, such as forced begging, forced marriages, coercion to criminal activities, etc. During the same period, more than 1,000 children were trafficked and sexually exploited, he said.  Of the total number of victims reported, 65 per cent were EU citizens.“In Cyprus, statistics in the three-year period between 2016 to 2018 are also indicative of the spread of the phenomenon,” he said, adding that 108 persons were identified as victims of human trafficking, while 58 criminal cases were filed. These cases concerned 75 suspects, 51 men and 24 women.“But European and international organisations dealing with human trafficking admit that these numbers are the ‘tip of the iceberg’”, he said, since a large number of cases never comes to the attention of the competent authorities.According to the 2019 Trafficking in Persons Report by the US State Department, Cyprus identified 31 victims last year; 21 victims of sex trafficking, eight victims of both sex trafficking and forced labour, and two victims of forced labour. Among the victims was one male. The government also identified five victims of forced marriage.Victims identified in Cyprus in 2018 according to the report were from Bulgaria, Cameroon, China, Cyprus, Ethiopia, Gambia, India, Latvia, Moldova, Ukraine, Nigeria, Romania, Russia, Uzbekistan and Vietnam.Thoma said that the EU, recognising the extent of the problem, strives to contribute both to preventing and combating human trafficking through legislation, and a number of other actions and programmes.“It is also of paramount importance to mention that within the European Union there is institutionalised police cooperation between states,” he said, concerning a common strategy, direct exchange of information, operational cooperation and supporting members through funding, training, research and innovative applications.Thoma said that everything decided at European level at this front directly affects Cyprus.To sum up, he said, it is easy to see how the EU plays a crucial role in preventing and combating human trafficking both with coordinating-background work and with the active involvement of its various organisations in real time in the “battlefield”.You May LikeCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityEarthquake insurance that fits your future plansCalifornia Earthquake AuthorityUndoDirectExposeWorld’s First Surviving Octuplets Are All Grown Up.
