Goulmima – Parkinson’s disease is a widespread condition whose symptoms start to show between the ages of 40 and 60. The chances of developing the disease increase with age. It is caused by the death of dopamine-generating cells in the substantia nigra, which is a region in the midbrain that maintains balance of human body.Most people suffering from the Parkinson Disease start to experience symptoms such as uncontrollable body shaking, slow movements, loss of balance, the disappearance of facial traits, speech difficulties, anxiety, depression, swallowing difficulties, constipation, and sleeping disorders. April 11 is the International Day of Parkinson’s. Each year research reveals new shocking statistics on the number of people affected by the disease. In Morocco, statistics revealed that about 50,000 Moroccans suffer from Parkinson’s; internationally, one person out of every 1000 has it.Most of the cases are discovered at a late stage, which makes it more difficult to treat, especially because medicine for this disease is very expensive. Nevertheless, the neurologist Dr. Ahmed Ashouri explained, “medicine alone is not enough and family’s psychological support is prerequisite at the different stages of the disease.”He added that “people suffering from Parkinson tend to feel ashamed of their disease which makes it hard for them to cohabitate with their families.”Edited by Melissa Smyth© Morocco World News.

6 October 2008Top United Nations officials have marked World Habitat Day with a call to ensure that the rapid urbanization of towns and cities – which the majority of people today call home – is accompanied by decent living conditions and efforts to preserve the environment. Top United Nations officials have marked World Habitat Day with a call to ensure that the rapid urbanization of towns and cities – which the majority of people today call home – is accompanied by decent living conditions and efforts to preserve the environment. The theme of this year’s Day is “harmonious cities,” in an effort to raise awareness of the problems of rapid urbanization, its impact on the environment and the challenges of rising urban poverty.“Our rapidly urbanizing world cannot claim to be harmonious if slum dwellers do not enjoy opportunities to find jobs and improve their living conditions,” Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said in his message for the Day, which is observed on the first Monday in October each year. “Nor will it be harmonious if the growth and expansion of urban areas comes at the expense of the natural environment,” he added. The Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the set of anti-poverty targets world leaders committed to in 2000, call for a significant improvement in the lives of at least 100 million slum dwellers by 2020.“Cities have tremendous potential to be places where balanced development prevails, where diverse people live in harmony, and where healthy living conditions coexist with low levels of energy consumption, resource-use and waste,” said Mr. Ban.“I call on all partners and stakeholders to do our utmost to realize this potential, and to build decent living conditions for all women, men and children in a way that also preserves our natural heritage and promotes greener and smarter growth.”Anna Tibaijuka, Executive Director of the agency which promotes socially and environmentally sustainable towns and cities and adequate shelter for all (known as UN-HABITAT), said that with the number of urban slum dwellers worldwide moving above the 1 billion mark, rising urban poverty is one of today’s biggest development challenges.“We have both a moral and ethical responsibility to make our cities more harmonious by making them more inclusive. It is a societal imperative that we fight urban poverty and squalor if we are to secure urban safety and security,” she said in her message for the Day.Ms. Tibaijuka added that it is no coincidence that climate change is emerging at the forefront of international debate at the same time as the world becomes more urbanized. “Cities consume upwards of 75 per cent of all energy and contribute to an equally substantial amount of green house gas emissions. Cities must therefore be an integral part of any mitigation efforts,” she stated. “Reducing the contribution of cities to climate change and the vulnerability of cities to the effects of climate change must be viewed as a historical opportunity to improve the living conditions of all women and men, including the most vulnerable segments of our urban populations,” she added. “I can think of no better initiative than to combine these efforts to make our cities and towns greener and safer and more equitable.” The UN Special Rapporteur on adequate housing noted that the growth of slums in the last 15 years has been “unprecedented” with one out of every three city dwellers today – approximately 998 million people – living in a slum. “Living in slums means being deprived of access to adequate sanitation, education and health care or to other services and opportunities. It also means being excluded from full participation in civic life and the exercise of citizen’s rights, as slums are considered illegal, informal or transitory and in any case a non-permanent part of a city’s political and economic fabric,” Raquel Rolnik said in a statement. Numerous events are taking place around the globe to mark this year’s World Habitat Day, including the launch in Bangkok of a free online “Quick Guides” to help policymakers deal with the key issues of housing urban poor in the Asia-Pacific region. The Quick Guides, developed jointly by the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP) and UN-HABITAT, are in response to the unprecedented growth of slums and squatter settlements that over 500 million people in the region call home. This year’s Day comes ahead of the fourth session of the World Urban Forum, set to take place in Nanjing, China, from 3 to 6 November. The Forum, the premier global event on managing urbanization, will also witness the launch of the State of the World’s Cities, UN-HABITAT’s flagship biennial publication.Nanjing is also the recipient of this year’s Habitat Scroll of Honour Special Citation, which is conferred upon cities, governmental and non-governmental organizations, local authorities, public, private and research bodies, or individuals for outstanding achievements in the cause of sustainable human settlements. In addition, the Chinese cities of Shaoxing and Zhangjiagang were given the Habitat Scroll of Honour Award, along with the Rwandan capital, Kigali, the Russian city of Bugulma, and Ciudad Juarez, a major Mexican city on the United States border.
AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email OTTAWA – Canada will miss its deficit targets in each of the next four years, because global economic weakness has carved into commodity prices and tax revenues, Finance Minister Jim Flaherty said today.His fall economic update showed a bottom line worse than many expected, with the deficit at $26 billion, up $5 billion from the March budget forecast.Flaherty also said it will take a year longer than predicted to balance the budget.“Canada has clearly been affected by volatile and falling world commodity prices since the budget in late March,” he said in notes for a speech to a Fredericton business audience.“And the forecast of private sector economists is consistent with the view that world commodity prices will remain below the level anticipated at the time of the budget.”Because of the weakness, the government expects revenues to be on average $7.2 billion below what it had counted on in the budget during the five-year horizon period.Flaherty made clear that he remains on track in keeping government costs down. Program expenses edge down as a percentage of the country’s gross domestic product during the period.But the numbers show the government can’t overcome the lower revenues, which were first noticed in the final accounts of last year’s budget period. They carry on this year and into future years.Ottawa now projects its deficit will rise to $26 billion this fiscal year, which ends in March, as opposed to the predicted $21.1 billion. Going forward, the deficit is now projected at $16.5 billion next year, compared with the budget estimate of $10.2 billion, and $8.6 billion in 2014-15, as opposed to $1.3 billion.The March budget anticipated a $3.4 billion surplus in 2015-16, but now Flaherty expects a $1.8 billion deficit that year. The new calculation is that Ottawa will finally show a surplus of $1.7 billion in 2016-17.The projections do include a $3 billion margin of error, or so called “risk adjustment,” so it is possible that Ottawa could still come in on target if those risks do not materialize, or if the economy performs better than expected.In his speech, Flaherty cautioned that the world is full of risks and again expresses concern about a U.S. fiscal crisis if Congress and re-elected President Barack Obama cannot come to an agreement before Jan. 1.But he also said there is also some cause for optimism, in which case both the Canadian economy and government finances will improve.“Growth in Canada could be significantly stronger than expected if the United States policy-makers are able to reach an agreement to avoid the fiscal cliff in 2013, while implementing a medium-term plan to reduce their debt and deficit,” he said. Falling revenues to push deficit up $5B to $26 billion, Flaherty says by Julian Beltrame, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 13, 2012 12:48 pm MDT
António Guterres was in Tokyo on Wednesday where he held talks with Prime Minister Shinzo Abe before traveling west to to meet with the Mayor of Nagasaki and participate in the 73rd Nagasaki Peace Ceremony.The number of survivors of the bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki – or hibakusha as they are known in Japanese, is decreasing each year.Japan’s health ministry says that as of last March, only 155,000 survivors remain, with 90,000 having died over the past decade. Moreover, the number of survivors directly exposed to radiation in the cities and their surrounding areas, has dipped below 100,000 for the first time, with the average age being 82 years old.Before the commemoration, Akitoshi Nakamura, Director of Atomic Bomb Museum spoke to UN News.Having started working at the Museum 60 years after the second atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki, just three days after Hiroshima, Mr. Nakamura enthusiastically shared the citizens “high hopes” as they “eagerly” await Mr. Guterres’ arrival.“We are, from the bottom of our hearts, welcoming the SG’s visit here,” he asserted.Laying out plans for the Secretary-General’s visit, Mr. Nakamura shared his hopes that the UN chief would join local children in making origami cranes, a symbol of peace, before touring the museum where highlights include a clock that stopped at 11:02 am, when the bomb was dropped; documents charting the catastrophe after the bombing; and the broken belfry dome of the Urakami Cathedral.“We would like him to see those,” said the curator. “But more than anything, we would like him to see the photos of hibakusha.”“What is most horrific is the effect of nuclear radiation, so we would like him to see the documents and panels that show the effects of nuclear radiation on health,” Mr. Nakamura elaborated.UN chief @antonioguterres is in Japan and will be taking part in the 73rd #Nagasaki Peace Ceremony on Thursday honouring the #hibakusha. We’re welcoming him “from the bottom of our hearts” says the head of the Atomic Bomb Museum. @UNIC_Tokyo pic.twitter.com/SmgfMvWY7B— UN News (@UN_News_Centre) August 8, 2018 The museum traces the catastrophe that unfolded after the bomb.“We want people to see what a horrific weapon an atomic bomb is, and the kind of devastation over 14,000 nuclear weapons around the world can bring,” Mr. Nakamura stressed, explaining the museum’s aim to eliminate stockpiles of nuclear weapons, by illustrating the horrors they inflict.“The two atomic bomb museums, in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, are about something that happened in the past, but they also are important in the sense that they trigger an awareness of the danger that nuclear weapons may cause in the future,” he said.After 73 years, Mr. Nakamura does not want the experiences of the dwindling number of survivors to be forgotten along with them.Calling it “the most important thing,” he said that “the museums continue telling the story of what happened at the time, in order for it to not be forgotten.”Hiroshima was the first city to be devastated by an atomic bomb, on 6 August, 1945, and for the time being at least, Nagasaki is the last. With that distinction, Mr. Nakamura spells out “it’s very important to prevent another exposure to an atomic bomb.”“We, the citizens of Nagasaki, have been appealing to the world to make Nagasaki the last city devastated by an atomic bomb,” he said.As hibakusha numbers decline, education that carries on their voices becomes ever more important.
In 2015 a planning inspector backed officials at Forest of Dean District Council who said he had to demolish the building. The building from the outsideCredit:SWNS.com Speaking in 2015 he said: “I’m doing this for my family, I’m not hurting anybody.”This is my family home, all my children and my grandchildren come to visit, it’s the place they all go.”Nobody really knows it’s there, if all this fuss hadn’t been kicked up nobody would know it was there.”I have spoken to all my neighbours and none are bothered, they have all written letters of support to the council.”But neighbours now say they are concerned that bulldozers will be unable to get to the complex because there were other buildings in the way. A spokesman for Forest of Dean District Council said: “There is an enforcement notice requiring the removal of unauthorised development at 24 Meendhurst Road, Cinderford.”Mr Wildin has until the 7th of July 2017 to comply with the notice which has been endorsed by a planning inspector.”Once the period for compliance with the notice has expired, Mr Wildin will be liable to further action, including prosecution in the courts for a breach of the notice.”Due to the possibility of legal action it would be inappropriate for us to comment further at this time.” The complex was built in 2013 and Mr Wildin said he believed it was a “permitted development”Credit:SWNS.com Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. Andrew Buckmaster, who lives nearby, said that the development should have been stopped earlier.”I don’t think he will take it down. He is going to build a house in front of it, which he has planning permission for, so how will they be able to get back there and take it down?” he said. It’s a good idea to consider planning permission before building anything in your back garden – especially if it is a 10,000 sq ft leisure complex with a casino, cinema and bowling alley. A Gloucestershire accountant now has just weeks to demolish his project or face legal action after building his own private leisure centre without planning permission. The development built by Graham Wildin, 65, includes a a two-lane bowling alley, a 16 seat cinema, squash courts, private casino and bar.The development, which he says he built for his children and grandchildren, also has a 25ft tall three-storey doll’s house, a soft play area and indoor tennis and badminton courts.He refused to disclose how much it had cost. Mr Wildin faces having to demolish the leisure centreCredit: SWNS.com He was given two years to comply with the enforcement notice after the planning inspectorate ruled that the building is a “bulky structure”.They added it was “totally out of scale and proportion with the surrounding development”.But less than three months before time runs out there is no sign of any demolition work taking place and Mr Wildin is adamant that the leisure centre will remain standing.He said: “It’s not coming down. That is definite. The council have given notice at the end of which they will have to decide whether they are going to do anything or not, but there are a lot of legal issues involved.” Mr Wildin claims that when it was built in 2013, he made sure it “couldn’t be seen by anybody”. He spent more than a year building the luxury centre behind his house in Cinderford, Gloucestershire, which he said he believed was a “permitted development” under planning rules. The accountant said that he dug out 9,000 tons of soil and constructed the building 18ft below ground level. He said: “If you look at the building from the street you can’t see it at all, you can maybe just see a fence. You’d have to be in a helicopter to see it.”I looked at the rules permitting development before I started, they are very generous rules.”But the grandfather-of-five has just weeks left to comply with a council enforcement notice instructing him to tear the building down – or face prosecution.

Are people still complaining about economic downturn-this and stagnant recovery-that? BORING! So 2009. Thankfully one Dubai-based company is bucking all that recession talk by giving the world what it so desperately wants: temporary tattoos made from 24 karat gold.Precious Skin currently operates two outlets throughout the desert playground (or prudish outpost, whatever). The company can apply temporary tattoos, which last up to a week and are made out of 99.9% gold or platinum. The process originated in Japan but was brought to Dubai by managing director Arnaud Flambeau who thought this could be sold as a premium version of the henna tattoos that are customary among Gulf women for weddings and other special occasions.Pricing for the tattoos starts at a quite-reasonable $50, and can go as high as $5,500 for more elaborate designs.pic via
Yesterday, less than 24 hours after Apple had officially announced iOS 5, the developer beta had been jailbroken. The jailbreak was achieved by MuscleNerd, a member of the iPhone Dev Team,using Geohot’s Limera1n exploit. But the speed of the jailbreak didn’t bring a perfect solution to the problem as it was a tethered method.The issue with tethered jailbreaks is that every time you reboot your iDevice you have to be connected to a computer to retain the jailbreak. What users really want is an untethered solution removing the need for a computer even to perform the jailbreak in the first place.AdChoices广告Unfortunately, Apple has just closed the door on the exploit used to achieve an untethered jailbreak in previous versions of iOS. This tweet by Stefan Esser, known as Twitter user @i0n1c, explains:What this means is someone will have to find a new exploit to allow for a new untether solution. If one can’t be found, then it’s doubtful iOS 5 will ever get an untethered jailbreak.The hacking community like a challenge though, and if you tell them something isn’t possible they try all the harder to prove you wrong. I am sure another method will be found, it just may take a while. It helps that the official release of iOS 5 for consumer iDevices isn’t happening until the Fall giving them a few months lead time to come up with a solution.Read more at the iPhone Download Blog

Short URL https://jrnl.ie/3269112 DisputeThe dispute centres on the cost cutting measures planned by the national bus operator, which says that it go insolvent by the middle of this year if it doesn’t reduce its spending.Workers had prepared for a “protracted strike” from Monday, as unions refused to accept what they referred to as “far-reaching and financially impactful measures”.The financial situation at the embattled company is such that it claims it is looking at an estimated operating loss of €9.4 million for last year. It states that losses for last month are already in excess of €1.5 million.Minister for Transport Shane Ross has repeatedly refused all calls to intervene in the dispute, reiterating his position before an Oireachtas Transport Committee hearing on Wednesday.On numerous occasions under questioning from Committee members, Ross rejected calls to personally intervene in the dispute, saying that he “wouldn’t get involved” and wouldn’t “take sides”.He did, however, repeatedly call on the company and the unions to enter into talks together.Route closuresPart of Bus Éireann’s cost cutting measures involves the scaling back of some routes, and the scrapping of others.Earlier this week, the National Transport Authority (NTA) issued a statement saying that it had assessed the affected routes and determined that only the planned closure of the Westport-Athlone route would so adversely affect its users as to warrant additional provisions put in place to replace the service.Independent TD for Roscommon – Galway, Michael Fitzmaurice welcomed the NTA’s announcement, saying that the routes are a “lifeline for people in rural areas.”However, the unions were less than impressed with the NTA’s plans.Siptu’s Noone said: “On four of the five routes on which the management of Bus Éireann has selected to cut or severely curtail services the NTA states that it has already issued enough licences to cover their continuation by private operators.This reveals a long-term plan to undermine public services for the benefit of private operators.Read: Opinion: ‘Taxpayers who earn significantly less than Bus Éireann drivers are being asked to foot the bill’Read: Shane Ross: ‘People want me to come to the Bus Éireann dispute with money.

Updated 6.05pmTHE STRIKE BY Bus Éireann drivers planned to take place from Monday has been called off.Both the NBRU and Siptu have issued statements saying that they have accepted an invitation from the Workplace Relations Commission for talks on the current situation with Bus Éireann on Monday 6 March.Siptu Sector Organiser Willie Noone said: “It has always been apparent that the expertise of the WRC will be required to deal with the serious and complex issues in this dispute.In deference to a request by the WRC the scheduled strike action by SIPTU members in Bus Éireann, which was due to commence on Monday, has been suspended.“SIPTU representatives will continue to play their part in trying to avert a national public transport dispute but we rely on the management of Bus Éireann making genuine efforts to reach a resolution.”NBRU General Secretary Dermot O’Leary warned that, although the current strike action has been averted, its members should remain ready to engage in an immediate all-out strike if an agreement cannot be reached with Bus Éireann.He said: “We will of course endeavour, on behalf of commuters and our members, to work towards resolving this crisis.However, the attitude displayed by Bus Éireann management to-date has left us with no option but to advise our members that they should remain on a war-footing and be prepared to engage in an immediate all-out strike.In a statement, Bus Éireann said that, while the financial situation remains critical, they have decided to defer the implementation of its planned changes while talks continue.Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Shane Ross, said:I welcome the news that Monday’s proposed bus strike has been called off. I would like to thank both employer and employees involved in this dispute for accepting an invitation from the Workplace Relations Commission to return to talks.
Local Greek Melburnian Vicky Kanellopoulos modern ANZAC pin has been included in the official merchandise for the Anzac centenary commemoration.The jeweller wanted to move away from the traditional commemorative pins that are around and decided to include more modern traits which surprised the Australian War Memorial.She chose to use sterling silver because she felt the brooches should be made from “precious materials” which “place value not only on the special occasion but in the material as well”. Retailing at $180, only a few of the brooches have been made, making the purchase very unique.Her vision came from having friends in the armed forces that had recently returned from Afghanistan and her desire to give back to the community.

Le périmètre autour de la centrale de Fukushima bientôt déclaré inhabitable ?Selon les médias japonais, le gouvernement s’apprêterait à déclarer la zone qui entoure la centrale accidentée de Fukushima Daiichi, inhabitable pour plusieurs années voire des décennies. Une étude aurait constaté une contamination radioactive qui dépasse largement les niveaux de sécurité. Quelques jours après la découverte de traces radioactives dans la glande thyroïde d’enfants vivant dans les villages proches de Fukushima, c’est un grand pas en avant que s’apprête à franchir le gouvernement japonais. Du moins, si l’on en croit les médias locaux. En effet, ceux-ci indiquent que les autorités japonaises seraient sur le point de déclarer inhabitable la zone s’étendant à 20 kilomètres autour de la centrale accidentée de Fukushima Daiichi. Le premier ministre japonais Naoto Kan se rendrait alors d’ici samedi dans la préfecture pour annoncer la nouvelle aux résidents.À lire aussiLa fusion nucléaire pourrait bien devenir prochainement une réalitéSelon les informations relayées par le New York Times (lien non disponible), cette décision fait suite à une inquiétante étude réalisée par le ministère de la Science et de l’Education et publiée ce week-end. Celle-ci a révélé des niveaux de radiations bien plus élevés que le seuil de sécurité dans trois douzaines de points localisés environ 20 kilomètres autour de Fukushima. La ville d’Okuma, située à moins de 3,5 kilomètres au sud-ouest, serait ainsi le point le plus contaminé, exposant ses habitants à près de 508 millisieverts de radiation en un an, soit bien plus que la limite de 20 millisieverts par an considérée comme sûre.Depuis la catastrophe de mars, le gouvernement nippon a été très critiqué pour ses réticences à admettre la gravité de la situation et à évacuer une large zone autour de Fukushima. Ce serait ainsi la première fois que les autorités reconnaitraient officiellement que l’accident nucléaire provoqué par le tsunami oblige à une dépopulation à long-terme des environs de la centrale. Une mesure que les scientifiques préconisent depuis des mois.Les habitants ne pourront rentrer chez euxAprès l’accident, près de 80.000 personnes ont été évacuées des alentours de la centrale. Aujourd’hui, une majorité d’entre elles vivent dans des refuges ou des habitats temporaires et n’ont été autorisées à retourner chez elles que brièvement et avec obligation de porter des vêtements de protection. Jusqu’ici, Tokyo avait alors déclaré maintenir l’évacuation, seulement jusqu’à l’an prochain, le temps que les techniciens stabilisent la situation à la Fukushima Daiichi. Le gouvernement devrait donc bientôt annoncer aux habitants qu’ils ne pourront plus rentrer chez eux et ce, pour une période indéterminée : des années voire des décennies.

Jorge Sampaoli was very happy to see his team’s win over Italy as they were able to beat the experienced team 2-0 even without the biggest start, Lionel Messi, and showed a great performance which could help them to gain the confidence ahead of the tournament.This match was played in Manchester and Argentina gained a huge win thanks to late goals from Ever Banega and Manuel Lanzini – and they were able to do so even without injured Lionel Messi and Sergio Agüero who just watched the game from the stands.The former Sevilla coach spoke about this match as he said, according to Sport BT:“The team showed a lot of stability for much of the game and took advantage of the virtues of the players who played.”“We now have to build on the good work we generated. The group is developing.”Serie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….“Higuain led a lot of attacks and played the pass for the second goal very well.”Meanwhile, Italy coach Luigi Di Biagio thinks that the result was undeserved:“It is a harsh result. Throughout the game, particularly in the second half, I was thinking 0-0 would be a bad result and was hoping to win.”“I saw the disappointment in the eyes of the players but we must try again.”
Unai Emery is refusing to get nostalgic ahead of facing old club Paris Saint-Germain and insists that the game will have an important impact on Arsenal’s preseason preparationsThe Spaniard will lead the Gunners out to the Singapore National Stadium against his former club on Saturday in their second game of the International Champions Cup, despite the fact that it has only been two months since he had left the French side.Emery spent two years in charge of PSG and won a total of seven trophies in his time at the French capital, which included a domestic treble last season.However, while he will always fondly remember his time at Paris, the Arsenal boss will not be letting any affection he still has for his old team get in way of his preseason plans for his new side.“I am very grateful to PSG. It was a good experience, a good moment in my career. Now we are going to play tomorrow against a big, big club with big players. They won’t have every player on the pitch tomorrow because they are on holiday, but for me it’s important for our preparation. It will also be nice for me to meet my friends who I worked with at Paris Saint-Germain,” said Emery on the club website.Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“For us, it’s about continuing our preparations. It’s another match but we don’t want to change our focus. Our focus is to get every player up to speed and work on tactical things to get better for when we start [Premier League] competition.”PSG replaced Emery this summer with former Borussia Dortmund coach Thomas Tuchel.“Every coach has the chance to meet in Nyon every year when we have the coaches meeting and we can also speak tomorrow if we are together. Usually you don’t speak specifically about football in this moment, more football in general,” Emery said on his replacement.Arsenal lost their first game of the ICC competition in a 3-1 penalty shoot-out loss to Atletico Madrid on Thursday.
Northern Ireland striker Gavin Whyte has been praised by his coach Michael O’Neill after scoring on his international debut in their 3-0 win against Israel.Whyte came on for Grigg Will in the 65th minute and scored Northern Ireland‘s third goal two minutes later in a comfortable 3-0 win over Israel in a friendly on Tuesday night.After the match, Michael O’Neill was full of praise for the 22-year-old.“I’m delighted for him, it’s a great start for him,” he said. “He has come into this squad on this trip and made an impact in training certainly, so it was good to give him an opportunity to go on the pitch. And it could not have gone any better for him.” O’Neill told Sky Sports.Report: Euro 2020 qualifying Group G George Patchias – September 9, 2019 Euro 2020 qualifying Group G, saw Robert Lewandowski draw another blank.What should have been a plane sailing group for Poland, has turned out to…“I have watched Gavin for a number of years now in the Irish and the domestic league and you always saw a player with real talent, I kind of wished he could get the opportunity to move across to full-time football.“We took him on the summer tour to give him a little bit of exposure really and he eventually gets that opportunity. He is just stronger and quicker and his talent was never in question.“Gavin has always had an eye for goal and in a wide player, that’s a great ability to have. He was consistently a double-figure goalscorer when he was here, he’s already got three goals in six for Oxford.“And now he’s opened his international career with a goal, so that’s a big plus for us.”

(WSVN) – The University of Miami’s new starting quarterback became the center of attention during the Hurricanes’ media day.Jarren Williams joined coaches and teammates at a news conference held at UM’s Coral Gables campus, Tuesday.“Knowing that I’m a starting quarterback now is something I’ve dreamed about since I was 5 years old, when I used watch Michael Vic on TV with my family,” said Williams. “It’s just something that I’ve always aspired to.”The ‘Canes are prepared to play the college football season’s first big nationally televised game against the University of Florida Gators.Williams was named the starter after his performance in Saturday’s scrimmage.“What separates Jarren is just Jarren has a bit of an instinct,” said Hurricanes head coach Manny Diaz. “Once you get past the arm talent, just a little bit of an instinct to know where to go with the ball and a feel for the game that, I think, is a little bit different than the other two at this moment.”“Just to have this opportunity so, it’s a big blessing,” said Williams. “I don’t take anything for granted. I know that I have to work harder now that I’m the guy.”
Follow the evacuation order issued by authorities and evacuate immediately. Take your animals with you.Move to high ground or inland and away from water immediately.Stay away from the beach. Never go down to the beach to watch a tsunami come in. If you can see the wave you are too close to escape it. CAUTION – If there is noticeable recession in water away from the shoreline this is nature’s tsunami warning and it should be heeded. You should move away immediately.Save yourself – not your possessions. Dan Nelson, with the Kenai Peninsula Borough Office of Emergency Management: “The communities of Homer and Seward participate in tsunami ready programs, so there are evacuation routes assigned for people to get to higher ground. For instance, in Homer one of the assembly points is often Homer High School, which is above the bluff and has significant elevation for a safe place for people to go. Similarly in Seward, at the Seward High School is the same above the old town site. When that warning goes out people in those low lying areas need to head for higher ground. In our areas here that would include places like Homer Spit, and small boat harbors those types of areas that are very near the water.” In the event of a tsunami alert a phone message will read: “Emergency Alert. Tsunami danger on the coast. Go to high ground or move inland.” According to Nelson, one of the big things that folks need to understand about tsunami warnings is that all areas North of Anchor Point in the Central Peninsula typically do have tsunami potential. Appropriate actions to be taken by local officials may include the evacuation of low-lying coastal areas, and warnings may be updated, adjusted geographically, downgraded, or canceled. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享This week was Tsunami Preparedness Week, and while some Alaskans are accustomed to tsunami threats and to regular drills, an early morning alert going off on your cell phone can still create some fretful moments. But, not all of the residents in the Kenai Peninsula are accustomed to regular drills and tsunami threats. Here are some things to know; a tsunami watch means a tsunami is possible and you should be prepared; a tsunami warning is issued when a tsunami is imminent and you should move to high ground immediately. Warnings alert the public that dangerous coastal flooding accompanied by powerful currents is possible and may continue for several hours after initial arrival. Warnings alert emergency management officials to take action for the entire tsunami hazard zone. Nelson: “Kenai Peninsula tsunami risks are our coastal communities. On the Eastern side of the Peninsula it’s Seward, and Resurrection Bay. On the South side it’s Homer and Kachemak Bay communities.”
Prescribing of oxycodone and other opioid pain pills rose sharply after 2000.(Photo by John Moore, Getty Images)Three multi-year federal grants focused on combating opioid use have been awarded to the Alaska Department of Health and Social Services.The grants will amount to an estimated $3 million annually.

The first will fund $1 million annually for up to three years to expand medication-assisted treatment in the state. The second will provide another $1 million annually for five years to purchase and distribute naloxone, as well as train first responders on its use.Gov. Bill Walker stated in a press release his appreciation for this federal funding to help save lives and support Alaskan families and communities hurting from opioid addictions.The grant period began on Sept. 1.
Exhibition artists Ben Jones, Howardena Pindell, Victor Davson, Nanette Carter, Mel EdwardsBALTIMORE — Three members of Morgan State University’s staff traveled to Cuba this summer, as part of an event that sought to unite African Americans and Afro Cubans through art. Diala Toure, Curator of Collections at The James E. Lewis Museum of Art; Pamela Scott-Johnson, Associate Professor and Interim Dean of College of Liberal Arts; and Robin Howard, the Associate Director of the Center of Museums made the 10-day journey to the city of Havana for the opening of an exhibition on African American art at the Museo de Artes Universales.The 10-day event (from July 28-Aug 6) included workshops led by some of Cuba’s most notable writers, historians, artists and teachers. The women said what they found was a country that used art to communicate and to live. They said the country was hot, filled with music. The buildings were richly appointed and intricately decorated.“Cuba is art,” Scott -Johnson said. “We couldn’t be sitting here right now without somebody playing music, somebody dancing, somebody drawing,” she added.The gathering was a first for the country.“What we were privy to had not happened in that country, ever,” Scott. “The fact that African American artists joined Cuban artists and therefore leading intellectuals had not been on the same platform, ever.”She said it was a rare opportunity for herself and other staff to see what life is like for other people of color, in a country that is virtually closed off from the United States.City street in Havana reflects Cuban culture witnessed by Morgan visitors.“One of the things that I hadn’t been as prescient to was the vastness of the African diaspora. We have a certain way that we talk about discrimination and racism and colorism and we fail in some ways to understand that might be happening to our brothers and sisters across the diaspora. Cuba has just begun to talk about it in the open,” she said. “We don’t typically think of a socialist country as having a kind of racism, I think that was my own naivety.”Toure got a chance to get one-on-one with acclaimed artists, and begin a dialogue with them.“I was able to experience art in a very unique way. I couldn’t even imagine something better than that,” she said. “For me, it was a fabulous experience.”“The goal is to take this experience and strengthen how we share the culture of diaspora,” said Scott-Johnson. “We need to have the public re-imagine and re-ignite their love of culture.”Most of all, she said, she was left with a sense of pride and a sense of connection.“We have been chained and whipped and put out in fields,” she said. “We lose ourselves in who they are and yet we still stand. Stronger than any other people in the world, we are still standing.”“We fail to recognize who we are even when we interact with our brothers and sisters over the diaspora, like ‘I ain’t you and you ain’t me.’ Yeah, you are me and I am you and that’s what it reminded me of.”
Kolkata: Judges of the Calcutta High Court led by Chief Justice Jyotirmoy Bhattacharya paid their last respects to Somnath Chatterjee, whose body was brought to the court premises where he practised for several years as a barrister. The Bar Library Club, of which he was a member, the Bar Association and many lawyers also paid floral tributes to the departed former speaker of the Lok Sabha. Apart from the chief justice, justices Debasish Kargupta, Joymalyo Bagchi, Dipankar Dutta and Arijit Banerjee were among the judges who laid wreaths on the body of Chatterjee.

I witnessed from close quarters his advocacy, his astute legal brain and personality in court,” Mitra, a former advocate general of West Bengal, said. “He used to dominate wherever he appeared, whether in courts or as a member of Parliament and as a speaker,” Mitra said. The Bar Library Club took a resolution not to attend high court today as a mark of respect. The resolution was also adopted by the Bar Association and Incorporated Law Society.
