UNbacked guide seeks to prevent girls HIV infection

At the publication’s launch in Mexico City against the backdrop of the XVII International AIDS Conference, Purnima Mane of the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) said that “girls and young women face double vulnerability, and double efforts are needed to protect them.” The guide, “Make it Matter” was produced by UNFPA, the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and Young Positives. It centres around three goals recognized as key components of a successful response to HIV/AIDS: enhancing access to sexual and reproductive health services for girls and young women; increasing socio-economic opportunities for them; and bringing an end to child marriage. “Make it Matter” drawing on successful national programmes for HIV prevention in such countries as Viet Nam, South Africa and India. 6 August 2008With some 7,000 young women becoming HIV-positive on a daily basis, a new United Nations-backed guide released today aims to curb the spread of the virus among girls. read more

World leaders gathered at UN commit to boosting investment in education

‹ › “We have big goals, but we will not reach any of them unless we educate girls,” she said, referring to the Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by UN Member States in 2015. The event – co-organized by governments, the private sector, civil society and UN agencies – was held to boost political commitment and investment in quality early-childhood, primary and secondary education. “Delivering an education to all – and not just some children – is the civil rights struggle of our time,” said Gordon Brown, the UN Special Envoy for Global Education. “Confronted by the largest refugee crisis since the close of the Second World War, and with education receiving less than 2 per cent of humanitarian aid, it is vital we marshal the funds to provide an education for all children – especially those left out and left behind: refugee children,” he added. Gordon Brown, UN Special Envoy for Global Education, addresses the high-level event on “Financing the Future: Education 2030”. UN Photo/Rick Bajornas A young Syrian refugee addresses the event on “Financing the Future: Education 2030”. UN Photo/Rick Bajornas “Financing education is indeed the best investment we can make for a better world and a better future,” stressed UN Secretary-General António Guterres in his remarks to the event, titled “Financing the Future: Education 2030,” held on the margins of the General Assembly’s annual debate. “I started as a teacher. I saw for myself decades ago in the schools and slums of Lisbon why education is a basic human right, a transformational force for poverty eradication, an engine for sustainability, and a force for peace,” he said. More than 260 million children, adolescents and youth are out of school. Despite some progress in achieving gender equality in the world’s poorest countries, far more girls than boys still do not have access to a quality education, according to a news release. Also addressing the event was UN Messenger of Peace Malala Yousafzai, who said girls in many parts of the world are pushing back against poverty, war and child marriage to go to school.

Nobel prize for economists who worked on matching schools with students

first_imgTHE NOBEL PRIZE in economics has been awarded to two US game theorists who separately worked on ways to match students with potential schools, and transplant patients to organs.Alvin Roth and Lloyd Shapley were jointly awarded the prize “for the theory of stable allocations and the practice of market design”.Their work has variously involved coming up with new systems for assigning aspiring students to individual schools and colleges, work on calculating the voting power of individuals in large groups, and an algorithm to solve the ‘stable marriage problem’.The latter – solved by Shapley in the Gale-Shapley algorithm – involves taking a group of men and women, with equal numbers of each, and ‘marrying’ them so that no man and woman would preferred to be with each other ahead of their actual spouses.This algorithm has been elaborated to be applied in other circumstances, such as in the assignment of married couples to hospitals and nursing homes – allowing an efficient allocation of resources while also ensuring that long-term couples are not split up. This system was originally devised by Roth, his co-winner.Roth’s work, meanwhile, has also seen a total overhaul of the high school selection process in New York – replacing a previous system where students identified their top five preferences of schools, and where this list was then shared with schools who chose their preferred applicants. This meant some students would skew their preferences, trying to ‘game’ the system.Roth’s ‘incentive compatible’ system – where each student’s chances of getting their preferred school are improved by total and honest disclosures – eliminated these risks, and was later applied to Boston, eliminating a system where some students could be ‘rejected’ by all schools and then just assigned to whichever had a vacancy.Harvard academic Roth told reporters on a teleconference that he had missed the first call from the prize selection committee – and had to get his wife to rush downstairs to answer the phone, shortly after 7am local time, in order to take the call informing him he had won.Roth commented that the call “was worth waking up for” – and asked about how he planned to celebrate today, he simply commented: “Coffee.”The chairman of the nominating committee, Per Krusell, said the committee had not been able to contact the 89-year-old Shapley, who lives on the US west coast and would have been called by the committee at about 3am local time.The two will split a prize fund of 8 million Swedish kronor, or about €920,000.The economics prize is the only one of the six Nobel prizes not to have been created by Alfred Nobel himself in his will, but rather by the Swedish central bank, which created the ‘Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel’ in 1968.The award is considered a de facto equivalent to the other Nobel prizes, however, and is selected by the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences in like manner to the prizes for Physics and Chemistry.last_img read more

Facebook is now bigger than Google in web traffic

first_imgIf you’ve been wondering why the relationship between the world’s biggest social network and the world’s leading search engine has been souring lately, here’s your reason: Facebook traffic has now officially eclipsed Google traffic in the United States. Whoa.The shocking revelation comes from analysis and intelligence firm Hitwise, who note that last week, for the first time ever, Facebook accounted for one out of every four pageviews in the United States. Globally? That’s 10% of all traffic.Broken down, the numbers are even worse for Google: Hitwise says that last week, Facebook saw 3% more web visits and nearly five times as many pageviews as’s been on track to outgrow Google for awhile now: Facebook has seen a 55% year-over-year increase in its traffic numbers. The only metric in which Google is now beating Facebook’s is in monthly uniques: Google counted 173.3 monthly uniques in October, compared to Facebook’s 151.13 million.What these numbers make clear is that, for most people, Facebook now is the Internet… and that’s got Google, as well as privacy advocates, scared. Google understandably doesn’t want most of the Internet traffic locked behind Facebook’s login, unavailable for them to index and spit out ads upon, which is why they’ve started going to war with Facebook, denying users of the social network the ability to import their GMail contact data into the social network.It looks, however, like Facebook has little to fear: they’re already the biggest internet site out there. With 55% year-over-year growth, Google’s only going to become increasingly irrelevant to the way most people use the Internet. Woe be all of us.Read more at Mashablelast_img read more

Getting the hang of it Felida salon displays inverted Christmas tree

first_imgFlipping Christmas upside down has been a pretty hot retail trend in recent years. Turns out, it was a pretty hot trend nearly a thousand years ago, too.When Grant Whitney, the owner of the new Studio V hair salon in Felida, was getting ready to launch his business in May, his interior designer sized up the place’s high ceiling and offered a fun idea: When the holiday season approaches, why not dangle an inverted Christmas tree up there?Whitney’s reaction: A what? “I guess that’s a thing. I’d never seen one,” he said.He quickly learned that upside-down Christmas trees have been growing in popularity since the turn of the century — especially in stores and showrooms where sales space is at a premium. A wide-shouldered tree that’s balanced on one little toe doesn’t just grab the eye and tickle the curiosity, it also leaves more square footage open on the floor.All sorts of upside-down trees are available via all sorts of sellers. Wal-Mart’s most affordable, an unadorned 3-foot artificial “tear drop,” goes for $35 and you can dangle it over a door; the Hammacher Schlemmer clearinghouse of conspicuous consumption offers a 7-foot upside-down tree featuring “3,700 lifelike PVC branch tips that are carefully pre-strung with 800 bright clear commercial-grade lights.” It goes for $600. The $65 base is extra.The small tree Whitney settled on is supposed to stand in a base, but he had a better idea: He lopped off the base attachment and hot-glued a big light to the point at the top — that is, the bottom. And he affixed the tree to an exposed pipe up near the ceiling of the back room where you go to get shampooed.last_img read more

Weather Eye Nostalgia for the 70s should set in this week

first_imgBoy, I have to ask myself how we take three 70-degree days in a row? Answer: Anyway we can! Depending on your location, it may have varied a degree or two.It was one of the nicest Easter weekends I can remember in some time; it just doesn’t get any better than that. I even caught myself sitting out on the deck soaking up those rays. It felt so good that it almost reminded me of my Hawaii trip a while back.Tuesday will bring more mild weather in the 70-degree range before things deteriorate slightly. A closed upper low along the coast lingering since Saturday will slowly move south and kick inland. This may send a few scattered showers our way Wednesday and Thursday. it shouldn’t be a big deal, but it will get cloudier and cooler.After that, the weekend looks nice at this point. And, hey, we deserve a break from all that March madness weather, to say the least.It was amazing on Saturday. I went from frost and a chilly 28 degrees overnight to 70 degrees in the afternoon. And Easter Sunday turned out much better than anticipated.last_img read more

Compromise Budget Resolution Unlikely to Clarify Fate of Spending Caps

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR An amendment to the Senate version of the fiscal 2016 budget resolution calling for relief from the statutory spending caps for defense and non-defense spending over the next  two years is unlikely to be included in the compromise resolution the two chambers are expected to hash out over the coming weeks.The amendment, introduced by Virginia Sen. Tim Kaine (D) and passed with the support of four Republicans, called for replacing $148 billion in spending cuts in fiscal 2016 and 2017 with alternative offsets not yet specified over the 10-year budget window, reported CQ.As talks get under way over a compromise budget, conservative groups are pushing back against the provision because it would reverse the Budget Control Act spending caps. The fight over relaxing the caps is part of the larger budget battle between right wing champions of the spending limits and defense hawks.So far, no formal negotiations are expected on replacing the Budget Control Act spending cuts, but the issue likely will heat up as the new fiscal year approaches. Lawmakers would need to pass a bill altering the caps as language in the budget resolution is not binding.Despite the uphill battle, Kaine will attempt to include his provision in the budget conference report, as well as encourage bipartisan talks on a deal to provide a reprieve for discretionary spending, regardless of what happens in the budget conference, according to the story.A Kaine spokesman said the amendment was “important to ensure everything is on the table to replace the sequester cuts” and make clear that there should be relief to both defense and non-defense programs.“It’s his hope the amendment sets the stage for a multiyear deal on sequester similar to Murray-Ryan,” the spokesman said in reference to the December 2013 deal struck by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) that offered the Pentagon $31 billion in spending above the FY 2014 and 2015 caps.last_img read more

Texas Border Patrol Agent Charged In Deaths Of Woman Child

first_img Share APThis undated photo provided by the Laredo Police Department shows Ronald Anthony Burgo Aviles. Texas authorities say Burgos Aviles, a supervisor for the U.S. Border Patrol, killed his girlfriend and her 1-year-old child before calling 911 claiming to have discovered the bodies in a city park. Aviles was being held without bond Tuesday, April 10, 2018, in the Webb County jail on two counts of capital murder. (Laredo Police Department via AP) A supervisor for the U.S. Border Patrol killed a woman with whom he was romantically involved and her 1-year-old child before calling 911 claiming to have discovered the bodies near a park along the border with Mexico, Texas authorities said Tuesday.Ronald Anthony Burgos Aviles, 28, was being held without bond in the Webb County jail on two counts of capital murder.Joe Baeza, police spokesman in the border city of Laredo, said Burgos Aviles was identified as a person of interest within an hour of the 911 call Monday, but Baeza declined to elaborate.He said Grizelda Hernandez, 27, and her son, Dominick Alexander Hernandez, likely were killed Monday near the park, which is adjacent to the Rio Grande and just south of the World Trade Bridge that carries traffic between the U.S. and Mexico.Burgos Aviles and the woman were in a romantic relationship, Baeza said. The investigation will determine if Dominick was Burgos Aviles’ child.“This isn’t over,” Baeza said. “This investigation is just barely getting started.”Authorities declined to provide the manner of death for the two. Online jail records do not indicate an attorney for Burgos Aviles to answer the allegations.Burgos Aviles was a nine-year veteran of the Border Patrol, Baeza said, and had been promoted last year.Jason Owens, Border Patrol chief for the agency’s Laredo sector, said at a news conference Tuesday that the deaths represent a “horrific tragedy.”“The actions of this individual, if true, are both inexcusable and reprehensible,” Owens said. “No one is more sickened than we are at the thought of someone wearing this uniform committing such a heinous act.”Baeza said investigators are working to learn more about Burgos Aviles’ relationship with Hernandez and many other aspects of the case, such as whether the suspect acted alone or had help.Webb County District Attorney Isidro Alaniz said it’s too early to determine if prosecutors will seek the death penalty, adding that the case “is being given extreme priority.”last_img read more

Despite challenges Zimbabwe showcases artists in Venice

first_img The vital role family plays in society Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility HARARE, Zimbabwe (AP) — Stone and wood carvings displayed by street vendors in Zimbabwe reflect a long tradition of sculpture, and despite economic and other challenges, the country’s artists are forging new paths and even have displays at one of the world’s most prestigious art fairs.Zimbabwe has a national pavilion at the Venice Biennale for the third consecutive time, making it an African standout at the Italian event that Raphael Chikukwa, curator of the National Gallery of Zimbabwe, describes as “the Olympics of the visual arts.” Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Chikukwa spoke in Harare last week to The Associated Press after returning from Venice, where the work of three Zimbabwean artists is displayed at the waterfront church of Santa Maria della Pieta.The artists include Chikonzero Chazunguza, who draws inspiration from 18th century local leaders who opposed British colonialists, and Masimba Hwati, who incorporates Twitter, Coca-Cola and other brand logos into his work. The third, Gareth Nyandoro, portrays Harare’s street vendors, whose large numbers reflect Zimbabwe’s high unemployment.“Continuity in these international forums is key,” Chikukwa said in his gallery office. He praised state support and cited efforts to nurture young artists.The Harare gallery is currently displaying the work of “Born Frees,” artists born after Zimbabwe became independent in 1980. There is also an exhibition of portraits of prominent actors, academics, politicians and other local figures. A huge painting shows Robert Mugabe, the 91-year-old president who has ruled since the end of white minority rule.The gallery opened in 1957 and the first exhibition, titled “From Rembrandt to Picasso,” showed original works by European artists. Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvement Quick workouts for men Sponsored Stories The Venice Biennale, which ends in November, features 89 national pavilions. Other African participants include Angola and South Africa. The fair curator is Nigerian Okwui Enwezor, the first African to hold the post.Zimbabwe’s economic woes have left artists struggling for funding. Chikukwa also contrasted the big crowds at the Biennale’s opening week to the lack of strong interest in Zimbabwe for art exhibitions. He remains motivated, however, by his mission to have the artists’ work be seen.“Giving voice to artists, it’s a very important element in any society,” he said.Copyright © The Associated Press.

September 26 2018

first_imgSeptember 26 , 2018 PRESS RELEASEHollister, CA – Berry People, an integrated company which last year hit the ground running with a year-round full-line supply of branded organics, is delighted to announce the launch of its inaugural Chilean blueberry season and its Avo People brand organic avocados from both Mexico and Chile. The Berry People team on a Mexican blueberry ranchBerry People is also announcing a full line of branded conventional berries and avocados to complement its core organic offering, providing North American retailers with a one-stop shop for the two rapidly growing superfruits.Alongside Chilean blueberries, the company’s Mexican raspberry season is now underway. The organization, together with select third-party growers, holds important organic berry production assets in Mexico and California.Berry People was founded by three business partners in the U.S. and Mexico – company President Jerald Downs, Chairman Francisco Ortiz, and Gerardo Escalera – who between them have decades of experience in the berry and avocado businesses and significant expertise in the entire supply chain from farm to retail distribution.By filling a U.S. market need for a consolidated, branded, year-round and balanced portfolio of organic and conventional berries, and thanks to its personal and transparent style of operating, the company has experienced increased demand in its first year and is poised for substantial growth in the near future.First Chilean Blueberry SeasonThe first shipments of organic Chilean blueberries begin this September. The fruit is grown in the coastal areas of the Valparaiso and Coquimbo regions, and Downs says that expectations are high for the inaugural season. Berry People conventional blueberries“The maturity of the region’s production and the quality of the people we are working with are the setting for an intense and ultimately rewarding season,” says Downs. “There is a real group effort going on now between our grower-exporters, retailers, and sales team to create transparent, win-win value by synchronizing expectations on pricing and costs, volumes, and promotional activity. This season will be a modest, but solid step forward.”Conventional, organic and biodynamic blueberries will be offered, helping retailers to fulfil consumers’ rising preferences for healthy and sustainably-grown produce.Mexican Raspberry Deal Berry People transitions to Pacific Northwest blue … Coming in tandem with the start of the Chilean blueberry season is the beginning of the company’s Mexican raspberry deal. Berry People’s Mexican berries are grown by company shareholders and alliance partners in the states of Michoacán, Jalisco, and Baja California. The raspberry harvests have already begun, and production is expected to build in October with steady volumes from November onward.“There is a swell of unmet demand for quality raspberries, and the flow of investment and development of production looks to be outpaced by the demand on the visible horizon,” Downs says.Quality raspberry production is in relatively few hands at this point, but he says Berry People shareholders have the established acreage and the expertise to maintain a consistent flow of excellent product from season start to finish. Avo People Avocados Blueberry and avocado farms in Michoacan MexicoComplementing the company’s full line of branded berries are AvoPeople brand organic and conventional avocados. Packing of conventional fruit began in the first week of September, and the first harvests of organic avocados from both Mexico and Chile are getting started now.“While Francisco has been farming avocados since 1972, as a company we are taking the avocado business slowly and methodically, making sure to do right by the farm and by our retailers, making continuity and transparency of business a priority,” says Downs.“The close personal relationship and end-to-end value chain perspective of the partners allows us to make win-win decisions for all ‘Avo People’ involved.”Berry People is straddling two very different worlds between the avocado and berry categories, but Downs highlights that the partners are taking a deep-dive expertise approach on each product to ensure success across the board.Berry People will be at PMA Fresh Summit from October 19-20 and invites anyone attending the event to drop by booth #285 and say hello.For more information, please visit You might also be interested inlast_img read more
