UNled campaign to provide affordable health care for Indian women

Tens of thousands of Indian women and their families will have access to quality maternal and child health-care services thanks to a partnership announced today by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and a chain of small hospitals in India for low-income clients.LifeSpring Hospitals has signed up to the Business Call to Action (BCtA), a UNDP supported global initiative challenging companies to apply their business expertise, technology and innovative spirit to tackling poverty and accelerating progress towards the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the eight targets designed to reduce poverty, hunger, disease, maternal and child deaths and other problems, all by 2015. Today’s announcement makes LifeSpring Hospitals the first health-care chain to join the BCtA, and means an estimated 82,000 women and their families will have access to better care.“Meeting the health needs of women and children is especially important as the MDG to improve maternal health has made the least progress so far,” said Natalie Africa, Programme Manager for the Business Call to Action. “Innovative business models such as LifeSpring Hospitals are helping to make real, sustainable progress by providing women with quality, low-cost health care,” she added.Each LifeSpring Hospital accommodates 20 to 25 beds, and can provide lower-income mothers with healthcare and delivery services at 30 to 50 per cent of market rates, as well as pediatric care and immunizations.More than 100,000 pregnancy-related deaths occur each year in India, according to UNDP. Another 100,000 women annually suffer from infections due to pregnancy.Most of these deaths and complications could be averted by providing a standardized level of care, but according to a press release issued by UNDP, quality health care in much of India is associated with high prices and is out of reach for many of the country’s poorer citizens.Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has called for greater action to accelerate progress towards the MDGs. He will host a special thematic debate during the General Assembly high-level debate in September in New York. 8 April 2010Tens of thousands of Indian women and their families will have access to quality maternal and child health-care services thanks to a partnership announced today by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and a chain of small hospitals in India for low-income clients. read more

UN refugee chief on a 10day visit to Afghanistan Iran and Pakistan

Ruud Lubbers, the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), will also visit Iran and Pakistan during his 10-day trip to the region, which starts on Saturday. A UNHCR spokesman told reporters in Geneva that Afghanistan is “currently facing perhaps the most disastrous humanitarian crisis in the entire world.” Pakistan and Iran are bearing a heavy part of the burden from the Afghan crisis, hosting some 4 million refugees — one third of the world’s refugee population.”In addition to the refugee situation in Iran and Pakistan, Mr. Lubbers will be taking a first-hand look at the ever-growing caseload of internally-displaced people inside Afghanistan – including at least half a million since last summer alone,” spokesman Ron Redmond said. Mr. Lubbers will visit refugee camps in Iran and Pakistan and the huge Maslaqh camp – now holding some 100,000 internally displaced people – in Herat in western Afghanistan.According to Dennis McNamara, the UN’s Special Coordinator for Internal Displacement, who just returned from Afghanistan, said the concern was “to respond to the immediate basic needs of the displaced while ensuring assistance is also provided to the impoverished population who remain in their villages.”During his visit, Mr. Lubbers is scheduled to meet President Mohammad Khatami in Iran and Chief Executive Gen. Pervez Musharraf in Pakistan. He will also have contacts with senior ministers, other UN agencies, donors and non-governmental organizations (NGOs).The spokesman also announced that Mr. Lubbers, who just concluded a trip to Germany and France, was organizing, in collaboration with the President of the French National Assembly, a parliament of refugees to be convened on 16 June. “The parliament will include 577 refugees – equal to the number of French parliamentarians – and will adopt a text supporting the 1951 Refugee Convention, which marks its 50th anniversary this year,” Mr. Redmond said. read more

Aid to Iraq should foster climate conducive to elections UN official tells

Mark Malloch Brown also cautioned that a long-range view is essential. “We would, however, be short-sighted to look only at a timetable that takes us to January,” he told the Meeting of the Donor Committee of the International Reconstruction Fund Facility for Iraq.”We must ensure that by January there is a momentum to our broader reconstruction activities so that so that when a democratically-elected government takes office in Baghdad, people will see an improvement in their lives,” he added.”We must ensure that after the elections the Iraqi people start to have choices about lifestyle, education, and jobs. And that these can be made in an environment of human security and the full restoration of everyday services – such as electricity and water supply. Democracy also means a normal – and a safe – life.”Mr. Malloch Brown acknowledged that because UN staff are among those targeted in Iraq, the UN had not been able to deploy adequate staff to the country. “It is not enough, and we know it,” he said.Nevertheless, UNDP has transferred $402 million to UN implementing organizations for 40 approved projects, he told the conference. “With your help, the seeds will take root and grow and provide the visible evidence of Iraqi sovereignty and progress, and above all, self-determination. For these are the best answers to today’s violence,” he said. read more

Financial strain can result in heavy toll on relationships poll

Financial strain can result in heavy toll on relationships: poll by Linda Nguyen, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 13, 2013 4:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – It may not be romantic, but couples who avoid talking about money problems may eventually see the financial strain effect their relationship, according to a survey released Wednesday.The study, conducted by Ipsos Reid for Calgary-based accounting firm MNP Ltd., found that 20 per cent of Canadians polled who were married or common-law say their relationship problems are due to their current debt situations. And 27 per cent say financial stress has left a negative impact on their relationships.“The critical thing is what is actually causing the riff in their relationship, and they say it is actually financial (problems),” said Grant Bazian, president and CEO of MNP.The study also found that younger married couples and those in common-law partnerships were most likely to say money was affecting their relationships (41 per cent) compared with those who were middle-aged (28 per cent) and seniors (16 per cent).Those with children were also more likely (35 per cent) than those without (23 per cent) to say their relationships were strained by finances.Twenty-two per cent also reported that they found it difficult to make the minimum payments on their debts, loans and credit cards even though the vast majority (96 per cent) say they are aware of how much money they owe.According to the last calculation from Statistics Canada, the average household owes 165 per cent more than it earns in annual disposable income — meaning an average family with $100,000 annual disposable income owes $165,000.Bazian says sharing with your spouse is key if you don’t want financial stresses to affect your relationship.“It’s all about communication,” he said. “It’s something you wouldn’t want to hide — especially if the debt is joint.”The poll also found that those who lived in Atlantic Canada were most likely (32 per cent) to say they struggled to make their minimum monthly debt repayments, followed by Ontarians (25 per cent), Albertans (22 per cent), B.C. residents (18 per cent), Quebecers (18 per cent) and Saskatchewan and Manitoba residents (15 per cent).“Dealing with debt can be overwhelming. And this Valentine’s Day, when you’re getting ready to purchase that gift for your loved one, you may want to think twice as to whether or not you can afford more purchases on your credit card,” said Bazian in a release.“Is the gift worth the high interest rates and will it bring more joy, or just more stress, to your relationship?”The survey results are from an Ipsos Reid online poll of 1,000 married and common-law living Canadians conducted between January 23 to 29. read more

Women vital for new paradigm in Africas Sahel region Security Council hears

For Bineta Diop, the AU Special Envoy for Women, Peace and Security, the mission highlighted the “heart-rending and poignant realities” of women and girls in places such as the Lake Chad Basin region, where the activities of the militant group Boko Haram have displaced millions.While the delegation met women terrorized by the extremists, or who had been married off while still girls, they encountered others who had stepped in to maintain livelihoods in the absence of men, as well as women religious leaders who are working to end child marriage and prevent radicalization via extremist ideology.“Women are of course undeniably victims of violence,” she stated. “But that said, women are not just victims. They are also agents of change. They are intelligent and smart and have initiatives that they wish to share to respond to the challenges they are faced with.”Nearly two decades ago, the UN Security Council adopted a landmark resolution that has placed the issue of women, peace and security on the global agenda. Resolution 1325 (2000) turns 20 in two years’ time and Sweden’s Foreign Minister issued a challenge to the international community to mark the anniversary.Margot Wallström called on the Council to ensure UN peacekeeping and political missions fully deliver on its promises. This, she said, will include making sure women are at the negotiation table, and that mission mandates include a perspective relating to women, peace and security, among other points.“Missions like the one undertaken last week should become annual events, and every Security Council meeting should consider the women, peace and security perspective as an essential part of our work to end conflicts,” she said.“I have no doubt that, if we were to do so, our motto of more women, more peace would become a reality.” Making the case was UN Deputy Secretary-General Amina Mohammed, fresh from a mission to South Sudan, Chad and Niger; all countries where women and children are paying what she called the “stark cost” of conflict.“With today’s conflicts greater in both number and complexity, it is more important than ever to find the path to peacebuilding and sustainable development for all,” she told the Council.“Across the three countries we visited, it is evident that women can be the agents of a new and necessary approach: a new narrative, a new paradigm.”The joint UN-African Union (AU) delegation to the Sahel was comprised of senior leaders from the international community, mostly women. read more

Fall Preview Day Sunday at Brock

In the competitive market of post-secondary education, getting prospective students onto campus is one of the most important tasks for university recruiters.For Brock University, the single most important day on the recruiting calendar is Fall Preview Day this Sunday, Nov. 8, when thousands of guests will visit the campus and learn more about what the school has to offer.“Some of our key competitive advantages stem from our spectacular campus setting, modern facilities, and our engaging University community,” says Beth Natale, Director, Recruitment. “Motivating students to visit during Fall Preview Day moves us one critical step closer in the push to forge connections with prospective students and prompt applications.”From noon until 4 p.m., visitors will meet with faculty, staff and current students and tour the campus. There will be a variety of information sessions, as well as an Information Fair in the Ian Beddis Gymnasium, where representatives from nearly every program and service at Brock will be on hand.For potential Humanities students, there will be an information session and tour of the newly-opened Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts in downtown St. Catharines at 10 a.m.“This day is critical to us as it comes right before students will be making their application to university in January. If they have a great experience at Brock, it will likely lead to them adding us as a choice on their application forms,” says Melissa Beamer, Manager, Recruitment Services.NOTE: Guests planning on attending Fall Preview Day should give themselves a few extra minutes to make the trip because of a planned closure of Highway 406 in downtown St. Catharines.

Aggressive Colts fall short on 4th down lose 60 at Jaguars

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — The Indianapolis Colts put the ball in Andrew Luck’s hands. They probably should have trusted Adam Vinatieri’s leg.The Colts failed to convert three fourth-down plays — all in field-goal range — and lost 6-0 to offensively challenged Jacksonville on Sunday.The first two were aggressive calls, calculated risks early in a scoreless game. The last one was a desperation move late. Regardless, they proved to be the difference in a low-scoring affair.“In a game like that, if you have a crystal ball, I suppose you maybe play it a little different,” Vinatieri said.The second-guessing for the Colts (6-6) started early in the second quarter — with some help from the Jaguars (4-8).Vinatieri made a 29-yard field goal, but rookie defensive tackle Taven Bryan was flagged for roughing the snapper. That gave Indy first-and-goal at the 5. Luck misfired twice and then connected with Nyheim Hines on third down for a 4-yard gain.Instead of sending Vinatieri back on the field for a chip shot, the Colts called for a shovel pass to Jordan Wilkins. Defensive end Yannick Ngakoue read it and stopped Wilkins just short of the goal line.“We were down in there enough, and that’s why you have to make every play count,” Colts coach Frank Reich said. “They deserve a lot of credit for stopping us. Not every game is going to be running up and down the field, especially when you play a defence like that in their home stadium.”On Indy’s ensuing possession, facing fourth-and-1 at the Jacksonville 31, Luck handed the ball to tight end Eric Ebron on an end-around play. Ebron fumbled, and the Jaguars recovered near midfield.“I need to get that first down,” Ebron said. “I need to lower my shoulder and run him over. I did it the last time. I’ve done it before to get the first down. … I like losses like this because it makes you look back and it makes you think and you never let it happen again. Yeah, we got shut out. We can’t get shut out again.”The Colts had another decent scoring chance late.Trailing 6-0 and facing fourth-and-1 at the Jacksonville 19 with 2:38 remaining, Luck got sacked for a 10-yard loss .“All the numbers say strong go there, and we liked the play we called,” Reich said.The Colts entered with a five-game winning streak and the fourth-most points in the league. They averaged 34.6 points during their win streak, and Luck had thrown three or more touchdown passes in eight consecutive games.So putting the ball in his hands seemed like the right call.Even the Jaguars agreed.“It made sense. They gambled on themselves,” Jacksonville linebacker Myles Jack said. “They’re high in the red zone, high on third down, so fourth down, play the lottery. That’s what they did, and they lost.”Luck completed 33 of 52 passes for 248 yards and an interception. He was sacked three times after getting hit just five times in the entire month of November. He was sacked once in the previous five games.“I didn’t feel very sharp,” he said. “I didn’t feel like I was putting the ball in the places to really give guys a chance to catch them. And credit to their coverage, you know, it’s a great team game. … I know I can be sharper. I know I need to be sharper. I’m discouraged today, but I’m also in a sense encouraged to get back to work and work on these things and improve.”___More AP NFL: https://apnews.com/NFL and https://twitter.com/AP_NFLMark Long, The Associated Press read more

Heres how to build your selfbelief for sports work and all aspects

first_img By Jason Brennan Share Tweet Email27 IF I ASKED you to name the three main areas in mental skills that you’d like to work on, there’s a very good chance one of them would be self-belief.Time and time again players, coaches, and clients ask for help in developing self-belief.Self-belief is often framed up as ‘self-confidence’ and ‘self-esteem.’It is a key area in sports training and mental health recovery and strengthening.Below are some practical ways to improve self-belief.OUR SELVESSelf-belief, self-confidence and self-esteem have one word in common – ‘self’.This is the more important of the two words, as the work starts firstly with the self (our inner world) and secondly with belief (external world experience). ‘Act the way you want to become.’ Source: Jason SilvaThe concept of ‘self,’ however, is complex and is often where people trip up – it just seems so BIG!A practical way to avoid this trap is to focus energy on ability.Abilities are much more user-friendly, as they are observable, measurable, specific and workable.So we should really refer to self-belief as – ability-belief!Ability belief is reality-based, as long as we are seeing our true abilities and the true possibilities of our abilities.Often, not only are we blind to our abilities but we can even engage in discounting or playing down our talents when others – coaches, team-mates, friends, managers, colleagues – can clearly recognise them.TRUE SIGHTWe can develop a filter on our vision that prevents us from seeing what we have done and what we are capable doing, and repeating.This filter shows up when others compliment us but we don’t accept the compliment.  We actively twist it into a put-down.Think of yourself saying things like: ‘Thanks, but it wasn’t my best’ or ‘Yeah, but I should have been faster/stronger/louder/etc.’ when someone was actually complimenting you.This type of ‘self-talk’ undermines ability-belief and needs to stop.A simple ‘Thanks’ response will do – every time!Of course, there is a place for performance analysis – in fact it is essential for high performance. What I am highlighting here is not analysis but a lack of ability acknowledgement, which hamstrings us in sports, business, relationships and life.In his famous book ‘Think and Grow Rich’, Napoleon Hill’s research outcome is as true today as it was a century ago:‘If the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve’His conclusion is that if our mind knows something is possible, then it can believe it is possible and through action we can achieve this possible.This mental process can be repeated to build our ability-belief, leading to reality-based self-belief.Like telling yourself:  “I know I can do this, I have done it before, I am able to do it again.”Or supercharging it: “I know I have this, I have done it before, I am going to do it again, and this time better because I have it in me to achieve more.”IS IT POSSIBLE?One of the ways to define possible is by asking: ‘Has anyone else done it before?’If the answer is yes, then it is achievable/possible!A more personal question is: ‘Have I ever achieved it before?’If the answer is yes, then I know I can achieve it again. It is not only possible, but highly probable!Now of course there are some reality checks needed, such as: ‘How long ago did I achieve it?’ If it was 20 years ago and it was a physical accomplishment, then of course there are other factors to take into account. Monday 17 Apr 2017, 8:00 AM “It is not the mountain we conquer, but ourselves.” – Sir Edmund Hillary Source: PA Archive/PA ImagesBut if we are talking about last week or last month or even last year, then ability-belief ought to be a given. What gets in the way is the aforementioned filter, distorting reality.For example, many young athletes are often very surprised when they are called up to a senior position – like making the A team or playing for their country. The coach, however, is never surprised.All top level coaches take selection very seriously and examine a player for ability prior to making the call.So if the call comes, the player should feel proud that they got the call, as it is based purely on their ability.DE-FILTERINGSo how can we disengage this filter and re-engage with a new one?In a previous article, you will find one straight-forward technique – Strength Based Thinking (SBT).However, ability-belief itself is a mental skill. Practising it leads to actively de-filtering – leading in turn to better results.Practise not only changes the filter but puts in place another one that becomes second nature over time – your ability-filter.The person no longer questions their abilities but clearly sees them, simply accepting them as true and real. Freeing ourselves to get on with what we are capable of doing.With the example of being given a compliment, many might think it is good to be humble and, yes, humility is a valuable skill to develop (especially in a leadership role). It is one of the core values that the SAS hold – Humour and Humility.However, there is a difference between being humble and actively undermining one’s achievements.One of the stable bedrocks of all military services is the hard work they put into training and preparation – repeating actions, scenarios and drills. Going into action, all soldiers need to believe their training has prepared them for what they will face.TechniqueThis kind of repetitive training and preparation – including ability-belief training, is possible for all activities.It is about being open to what is possible, acknowledging what has been proven, building on a bedrock of results and having a plan to work towards with clear goals to execute and repeat.So start de-filtering right now by carrying out the following steps:List three things you want to get better atThink about how you are performing at these things nowBe honest, and check with others too (external feedback)Score yourself out of 10 (top marks being exceptional)Score yourself each time you do the taskCapture what you did well each time – and whyAcknowledge clearly to yourself what you can repeat to build onAlways give yourself credit for trying!Always acknowledge the work you are doing and appreciate your own honest effort Short URL Apr 17th 2017, 8:00 AM 19,163 Views 2 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Jason Brennan is an Irish mental skills coach who has worked with the Super Rugby-winning Hurricanes, the Wellington Lions, the NZ White Ferns and a host of other professional and amateur sports teams, as well as a wide range of businesses and non-sporting clients.If you want to know more about ability-belief or to share a comment with Jason, you can email him at jason@thinkwell.seCheck out more of Jason’s columns here.Here’s how to deal with the negative thoughts brought on by pressureMental skills: Your journey to becoming more resilient starts here http://the42.ie/3341579 Here’s how to build your self-belief for sports, work and all aspects of life Mental skills coach Jason Brennan outlines how we can reframe self-belief into ability-belief.last_img read more

Although the Salvation Army distributes food to about 400 people a week, the non-profit is struggling to stock its shelves.After the Salvation Army’s annual food drive in May, the organization had collected only a meager 20% of what it usually receives in donations.Typically, the Salvation Army brings in 65,000 pounds of food.This spring, it collected only 12,000. Corps administrator Captain Bonita Kelsey said she’s not sure why the donations this year came up short, but she’s concerned that current supplies are running so low.She estimated that the pantry has no more than about 3-4 weeks of food on hand.The pantry is a resource for many different kinds of people. Salvation Army employee Richard Manning said he sees veterans, seniors, refugees and many families.During the summer, when school is out, some families face additional pressures to feed their children who are not receiving meals at school.If you would like to donate to the pantry in El Cajon, you can bring food donations to the office at 1011 East Main Street.Donors can also contact the office by calling 619-440-4683.

Anchorage charter schools seeking facilities school board discussing solutions

first_imgThe Anchorage School District is considering ways to help charter schools find permanent facilities. ASD has six facility-based charter schools and one more that’s petitioning for creation. Most of them are have difficulty finding and paying for adequate building space, especially the German immersion program, Rilke Schule, and the proposed math, science, and arts middle school.Joey Eski has children at Aquarian, which has a building but needs to expand. “Having support from the school district for facilities for charter schools, allows the school to focus on their program and really achieve their mission without being bogged down with facility problems,” she told the school board during their late session on Monday evening.School Board member Natasha von Imhof says one potential solution is creating a $5 million Charter School Facility Fund. It would give low-interest loans to the schools to build or lease space. She says the creation of the fund might attract future federal and state dollars.But School Board President Eric Croft thinks it might be better to bond to build new schools.“The more I stare at the charter facilities problems, Rilke’s and others, the more convinced I’ve become that we can’t continue asking charters to find facilities out there. It’s difficult to find an abandoned school.”Other possibilities include building one facility to house multiple different charter schools.Von Imhof also put forth a different proposal to provide more immediate funding to Rilke Schule, which will not have a building next year.Both proposals were added to the agenda right before the meeting started. They will be discussed in more depth and voted on during the December 15 school board meeting.last_img read more
