first_imgThe Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, the nation’s leading nonprofit providing care to those living with paralysis and advancing research into treatments and cures for spinal cord injury, will honor international box office record breaking film THE INTOUCHABLES at its annual star-studded A Magical Evening fundraising gala on Wednesday, November 28, 2012 at Cipriani Wall Street in New York City.The Weinstein Company Co-Chairman Harvey Weinstein will accept the Dana Reeve HOPE Award at the gala reception on behalf of TWC and the film’s directors Eric Toledano and Olivier Nakache.Peter T. Wilderotter, president and CEO of the Reeve Foundation, stated, “the Dana Reeve HOPE Award is presented to a person or organization that has shown amazing grace, strength and fortitude. The recipient of this award is dedicated to continuing the hope that Dana Reeve brought to the world and to the millions of people living with paralysis. It is only fitting that we honor The Intouchables for touching audiences worldwide and reminding us of the commonalities shared between all of us, no matter the circumstances.”Having received worldwide critical acclaim and international box office success, THE INTOUCHABLES is an irreverent, uplifting comedy about friendship, trust and human possibility that has warmed the hearts of millions. Based on a true story of friendship between a millionaire (Francois Cluzet of TELL NO ONE) living with paralysis due to a spinal cord injury and his street smart ex-con caretaker (breakout star Omar Sy), THE INTOUCHABLES depicts an unlikely camaraderie rooted in honesty and humor between two individuals who, on the surface, would seem to have nothing in common.Since its release, THE INTOUCHABLES has shattered box-office records worldwide to become the third highest grossing film of all time in France, the highest grossing French film in Germany ever, and has held the #1 spot in many countries around the world grossing over $356 million worldwide and counting. The film is currently playing in theaters throughout the U.S. and has won multiple awards at film festivals around the country including: the ColCoa Film Festival’s Audience Award and Critics Special Prize; the Florida Film Festival’s Audience Award for Best International Feature; the Wisconsin Film Festival’s Audience Award for Best Narrative Film; and the Nashville Film Festival’s Audience Award for Best Narrative Feature.“On behalf of Eric and Olivier and TWC, I would like to express how humbled we are to be recognized by one of the most inspirational and forward thinking organizations of our time,” said Weinstein. “Christopher and Dana Reeve have bettered the lives of millions, and the fact that this film is the first ever to be honored by them shows us how the film’s true story touches the hearts of so many like it did ours.”Wilderotter added, “We have always honored individuals and corporations that embody our mission to further the quality of life for those living with paralysis. After seeing this extraordinary film, we felt compelled to honor all of the individuals who helped bring this film and its inspirational story to light. This film captures the Foundation’s mission of ’Today’s Care, Tomorrow’s Cure’ and we are passionate about sharing its empowering message with our community.”This year’s gala will also honor longtime Foundation supporter and current board member Paul Daversa and Daversa Partners, Inc. with the Christopher Reeve Spirit of Courage Award and feature a special live performance by recording artists Jordin Sparks and Jason Derulo.Proceeds from A Magical Evening will benefit the Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, which is dedicated to curing spinal cord injury by funding innovative research and improving the quality of life for people living with paralysis through grants, information and advocacy.

Korean Massage Centers Invading Morocco

first_imgCasablanca- Korean massage centers are increasingly flourishing in Morocco. But despite their claims of being centers that provide medical massage to their clients, most of these centers provide services without any legal authorization from the government. A report prepared by newspaper Annass, published on Wednesday, shed light on this new phenomenon. The report was set behind the scenes of some of these Korean massage centers, which also apparently claim to offer their clients theoretical classes on wellbeing and relaxation methods. According to Annass’s report, these centers are omnipresent, especially in areas with high population density. In Casablanca for instance, the kingdom’s largest city and economic capital, it is particularly in the areas of Hay Mohammedi and Sidi Maarouf that these centers are mostly found.  They employ girls from various backgrounds, dressed in white gowns, whose job is to lure potential customers passing by these centers by suggesting a free massage, or purchases of products with reduced prices. Even on the net, Korean massage is presented as one of the most original and modern methods of relaxation. They mainly claim that their methods do not rely on pressure or on digital stimulation of energy points, but rather on generating carefully measured vibrations.  These attractive promises appeal to people mainly suffering from back pain, insomnia and anxiety. But it turns out, according to the same source that most of these centers that claim to be supervised by professional physicians seek only one thing: luring the maximum number of customers to sell them their services. Relaxation from fatigues and stress via a massage proves to offer great but eventually temporary results. © Morocco World News. All Rights Reserved.

GuineaBissaus political stalemate taking toll on development – UN envoy

The drawn-out political crisis in Guinea-Bissau is taking a toll on development and the situation could get worse in the absence of “a frank and sincere dialogue” involving all parties concerned, Miguel Trovoada, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative and Head of the UN Integrated Peacebuilding Office in Guinea-Bissau (UNIOGBIS), said in a briefing to the 15-nation body. “The more that State institutions and the main political actors remain divided, the more the current political situation will become more complex, delaying the implementation of critical reforms,” he said as he presented the report of the Secretary-General on developments in the country and the activities of UNIOGBIS.All concerned parties – in particular the President, the President of the National Assembly, the Prime Minister and political parties – should put the national interest first and engage in “a frank and sincere dialogue, strictly respecting the Constitution and laws,” he said.Failure to do so, he warned, would perpetuate the cycle of political instability that had dogged Guinea-Bissau for too long and undermine the prospects of its citizens – who had displayed “remarkable civic spirit” – to enjoy such basic social services as health and education. He also expressed concern about growing organized crime, citing recent break-ins at the residences of a member of the Government and an international UN official.Antonio de Aguiar Patriota, Permanent Representative of Brazil to the United Nations and Chair of the Guinea-Bissau Configuration of the Peacebuilding Commission, said it was reassuring that political discord had not translated into violence, but disheartening to see instability forcing international partners to delay the disbursement of financial resources pledged at the Brussels Donors’ Conference in March 2015.It is of the utmost importance, he added, that the Security Council endorse the continuation of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Security Mission in Guinea-Bissau (ECOMIB), whose mandate would expire in June, he noted. The Peacebuilding Commission is committed to work together with the Security Council in supporting and strengthening the role of the UN and of the Special Representative in Guinea-Bissau, he said, also underscoring the important role of regional organizations, like the African Union and ECOWAS, which coherently articulate the urgent need to overcome the present impasses. However, he emphasized the importance of national leadership and ownership as catalytic factors of political change. “The seeds of economic and social growth have been sowed in Guinea-Bissau by the Bissau-Guineans by adopting a long term vision for peacebuilding and institutional reform […] The difficulties in improving governance in Guinea-Bissau should not prevent the country from moving forward on key developmental opportunities,” he said. read more

Magic Johnsons Son on Being Gay I Can Only

Magic Johnson’s 20-year-old son is surprised by the public interest in his being gay, something that he revealed to his supportive family several years ago.Earvin Johnson III, known as E.J., says he feels as if he’s coming out of the closet a second time and that he’s “reveling” in the experience — even though news of his sexual orientation broke publicly sooner than he had planned.In an interview posted Tuesday on the talk show “Gwissues,” Johnson said that he didn’t feel violated after TMZ recently revealed that he’s gay.“I always wanted to come into the spotlight,” he said. “I always had dreams and plans of doing my own thing and creating my own image, so it came a little sooner than I thought it would, but this is still something I knew I would be going through and would have to experience.”The younger Johnson is a junior at New York University studying event management and design with an interest in fashion, journalism and media.He said the public reaction has ranged from support to criticism, including online postings involving “nasty things about me and what I’m doing.”“It’s almost like they’re attacking me for being me and so to that I can only say, ‘Well, I can only be myself, so I don’t know really what you want me to do,’” he told “Gwissues” host and interviewer Howard Bragman, a publicist who recently began representing Johnson.Johnson’s father, who co-owns the Los Angeles Dodgers, retired from the NBA in November 1991 after announcing he had HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. His wife, Cookie, was pregnant with E.J. at the time. The couple also has an adopted daughter, Elisa, and Magic has an older son, Andre, from a previous relationship.“I am very, very, very blessed to have the family that I do,” E.J. Johnson said. “My parents have always been super supportive. My sister and I have always been really close and she’s been really supportive as with my brother. When it was time to come out, I was, obviously, scared as most people are. After I got all the love and support from my family, then I knew I could go out and conquer the world, I guess.”Johnson said he first came out to his mother, who approached him when he was 13 or 14 years old.“I told her how I was feeling and she obviously told me that she had known and always would love me anyway. The same thing happened with my dad like a year or so later,” he said. “Everyone has to get used to it. No parent is prepared 100 percent and fully for something like that. We all had to work and move forward.”Read more: ESPN. read more

What happened when Martin McGuinness met the Queen of England

first_img 23,271 Views Source: WAS ONCE unthinkable.A former member of the Provisional IRA’s Army Council shaking hands with a woman who epitomised everything he had fought against for decades.The same could be said of Queen Elizabeth II. Here was a woman who was the public face of the oppressing force for many in Northern Ireland. Her close cousin Lord Mountbatten was killed by an IRA bomb as he holidayed in Sligo in 1979. And yet, there they were, shaking hands. At a reception dinner, McGuinness stood for the national anthem he had vowed to resist for all of his life.It was a far cry from Derry’s Bogside where he honed his skills as a republican paramilitary.After their famous handshake on 27 June 2012, McGuinness was asked how it went, responding: “Good, it went really well,” before adding with a smile: “I’m still a republican.” The pair met at a Cooperation Ireland event in Belfast, attended by the Queen while she was in the North on a two-day Diamond Jubilee visit.This was the McGuinness of the Good Friday Agreement era. He knew, for all it drove a wedge between himself and hardline republicans, that reconciliation was the only way forward if he were to live to see a United Ireland. He did not live long enough for that to happen. However, it is fitting that McGuinness passed at a time when the reunification of this island is a topic of discussion both in Ireland and in Great Britain. What happened when Martin McGuinness met the Queen of England Arms were put down and hands were extended.

Source: PA Wire/PA ImagesIn their second meeting in 2016, Queen Elizabeth cracked a few pointed jokes as she met Deputy First Minister Martin McGuinness at Hillsborough Castle in Down. This was as part of a two-day visit to the North.“Hello, are you well?” McGuinness asked as he extended his hand in greeting to the monarch in a televised meeting.“I’m still alive anyway,” Queen Elizabeth laughed, shaking his hand.The significance of the meetings between these two polar opposites did not go unnoticed. The move was welcomed by the established political leaders on both sides of the Irish Sea.Dissenters were vocal about their unhappiness with McGuinness. To some republicans, his shaking hands with the Queen was the ultimate betrayal, a rejection of an oath he took when he joined the IRA. Even now, there are still raw feelings over the meeting. Sinn Féin’s grassroots members were irked, while more hardline republicans, including members of the Éirigí group called him a hypocrite for attending a banquet, standing for God Save the Queen, while families in the North relied on food banks to survive.

He knew he had to lead by example. If a man who once vowed to eradicate a British presence in Ireland can lay down his arms and extend his hand to a person who personifies everything the armed struggle stood against, it sent the message that peace and the politics of the North could finally mix.Read: Martin McGuinness has died at the age of 66 >Read: ‘He served the people of Northern Ireland’: Tributes pour in across the political divide for Martin McGuinness > Mar 21st 2017, 9:15 AM Short URLlast_img read more

Greeks ramp up privatisation

first_imgAs Greece struggles to earn the next payout from its third bailout, the revival of its stalled privatization program may help rebuild creditors’ trust after months of often bitter confrontation.Greece is aiming to lease 14 regional airports and line up the sale of a majority stake in the port of Piraeus before the end of the year as the government attempts to rev up asset sales that have consistently failed to live up to expectations through successive bailouts.Next year officials in Athens are targeting 3.5 billion euros ($3.9 billion) from asset sales and concessions, as much as the country raised in the past four years.“The willingness of the government to continue the privatizations will signal its credibility and the ability to take ownership of Greece’s third economic adjustment program,” said Theodoros Stamatiou, senior economist at Eurobank Ergasias SA. “The current series of privatizations will signal to foreign investors that the government is willing to do business with the international markets.”Following a three-month lull that saw Alexis Tsipras become the first prime minister to win re-election after signing up to an aid package, Greece is running up against financial deadlines once again.Euro-area finance officials will consider this week whether the government has completed the legislation required to release the next 2 billion-euro disbursement from the bailout and next month the country is trying to close the first review of the rescue program. That’s a key part of the process for accessing another 25 billion euros to recapitalize the banks.Inspectors in AthensThe European Central Bank is due to release its assessment of the banks’ capital needs by the end of the month and European Commission Vice President Valdis Dombrovskis will meet Tsipras in Athens on Monday to assess progress on implementing the bailout.“The immediate priority is the implementation of the program and the successful conclusion of the first review,” Dombrovskis said in an interview with Athens-based To Vima newspaper published Sunday. “It’s especially important that we ensure that the program is on the right track when the time comes for recapitalization of the banks.”The proceeds from the asset sales will be used to repay some of the loans Greece will receive for its battered banks, as well as for financing investments following the steepest recession in more than half a century. Access to the privatization cash was one of the few concession Tsipras managed to wring out of German Chancellor Angela Merkel and the rest of the EU leaders when the rescue was thrashed out during all-night talks in July.By December, the government aims to complete the 1.2 billion-euro regional-airport lease with Fraport AG-Slentel and receive a binding offers for a 67 percent stake in Piraeus Port Authority SA from AP Moeller-Maersk’s APM Terminals unit, China Cosco Holding Co and Philippine port operator International Container Terminal Services Inc. That deal is due to be completed in early 2016.These privatizations “will have an impressive impact on the Greek economy” and will show that the economy “has been stabilized,” Stergios Pitsiorlas, chairman of the Hellenic Republic Asset Development Fund, said in an interview in Athens. “They will radically change the image of the country and bring more investments.”The fund will also address “as a matter of priority” the 20-year extension of the concession to operate Athens International Airport and the sale of a 30 percent stake in the Greek capital’s air transport hub, Pitsiorlas said.Energy OpportunityWhile the target for 2016 represents a step change from the country’s progress so far, it’s only a fraction of what’s required. Creditors insist that Greece generate 50 billion euros from a “significantly scaled-up privatization program” over the three years of the country’s latest aid program.Other assets on the bloc include Hellenic Telecom SA, Hellenic Petroleum SA, state-gas supplier Depa SA and a 17 percent stake in Public Power Corp. SA, Pitsiorlas said. The country’s position in Balkan energy transit routes presents “an opportunity we shouldn’t miss,” Pitsiorlas said.Greece will decide on the shape of a new state asset fund to manage the process by the end of November, Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos said Oct. 20. That structure will give the government more leeway to extract value from state holdings as it looks to use the windfall to help the rest of the economy recover, Pitsiorlas said.The proceeds from privatizations “can’t just be thrown into the bucket for debt servicing,” he said. “Some of this money has to be used for immediate needs and investments.”Source: Bloomberg, Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Tough start to the season Ayoze Perez

The Newcastle footballer believes this is the right moment to change the team’s fate and start adding points in the English Premier League seasonNewcastle United has lost four of their five matches, with one point coming in thanks to a drawing at Cardiff.And for footballer Ayoze Perez, the upcoming schedule should allow them to turn their season around.The Magpies will face this month: Crystal Palace, Leicester City, Brighton and Hove Albion, and Southampton.Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.“Now our league starts and it’s time to start getting points,” Perez told Sky Sports.“It has been quite a tough start to the season. We have had games against the top sides and we could have picked up some points, but we couldn’t. Now we are playing against a team in our league, which we can beat, and we are making sure we are ready for it.”“If you compare our situation with our performances we shouldn’t be where we are, but we have been playing against the top sides. Even with a perfect game you can get beaten, but only we can make it better,” he added.“Now is the time to get points, that’s the most important thing. It’s time to play against ‘normal’ teams and start doing what we did last season.” read more

Trial to begin for woman accused in shooting of husband

first_imgA 12-person jury was selected Monday in the trial of a Ridgefield woman accused of shooting her husband in 2007 after finding out he’d been having an affair.Sheryl J. Martin, 54, will stand trial on a charge of first-degree attempted murder for allegedly shooting Eddie Martin in the leg and arm on Sept. 8, 2007.The trial in Clark County Superior Court Judge Barbara Johnson’s courtroom is expected to last two weeks. Opening arguments are expected this morning.It’s uncertain what Martin’s attorney, David McDonald, will present as a defense because the judge this summer struck down his request to use a rare defense called the “betrayal trauma theory.” The theory contends Martin couldn’t form the intent to kill her husband because she was emotionally distraught when he told her he’d been unfaithful and wanted to end their 30-year marriage. The theory, which Johnson decided was too unknown to be reliable, has never been used as a defense in a trial in the United States, said Senior Deputy Prosecutor John Fairgrieve.last_img read more

Modis alliance set to sweep to India general election victory

first_imgElection staff members count votes inside a vote counting centre in Ahmedabad, India, on 23 May 2019. ReutersPrime Minister Narendra Modi’s party is set for a historic victory as India began counting on Thursday hundreds of millions of votes from its general election, according to data from the Election Commission.The National Democratic Alliance (NDA), led by Modi’s Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) was ahead in 324 seats, with the opposition United Progressive Alliance winning in 111, after 10:00am (0430 GMT), about two hours after the counting of about 600 million votes began, Indian TV channel NDTV said.NDTV and rival channel CNN News 18 have called the election for Modi’s alliance.Official data from the Election Commission showed the BJP ahead in 279 seats – more than the 272 seats needed to command a majority in the lower house of parliament – which would give it the first back-to-back majority for a single party since 1984. The main opposition Congress Party was ahead in 52.There are 542 seats available and final results are due by Thursday evening.The NDA’s predicted margin of victory is much larger than surveys indicated in the run-up to the vote, when most polls showed it would be the largest alliance but would fall short of an overall majority.At the BJP’s headquarters in New Delhi, the mood was upbeat, with party workers cheering as TV channels reported the growing lead.”It’s a huge mandate for positive politics and the policies of Narendra Modi,” said GVL Narasimha Rao, a BJP spokesman.”It’s a huge win for India, we are humbled by the magnificence of this victory.”Congress leaders were sombre.”We could have done better, the BJP seems to have exceptionally well,” Salman Soz, a Congress spokesman told NDTV.”Our weak point is we have been disorganised.”Security SwingModi was under pressure when he began campaigning, losing three state elections in December amid rising anger over farm prices and unemployment.However, campaigning shifted towards India’s relationship with nuclear-armed rival Pakistan after a suicide car bomb killed 40 Indian police in the contested Kashmir region in February, to the benefit of the right-wing BJP, analysts said.”National security became the discussion,” said Harsh Pant, a political analyst at the Observer Research Foundation think-tank in New Delhi. “It allowed the BJP to shirk some issues where it was weak.”Election staff members count votes at a vote counting centre in Mumbai, India, on 23 May 2019. ReutersThe BJP has also capitalised on the star power of Modi, a frenetic campaigner, as well as superior financial resources.It outspent Congress by six times on Facebook and Google advertising, data showed, and by as much as 20 times overall, sources told Reuters this month.”The longer election certainly helps Modi: he loves contact with the people,” Pant said. “The BJP’s electoral machinery is also much more effective on the ground.”Battle For BengalPolice guarded voting centres in West Bengal on Thursday, where campaigning had turned violent as the BJP tried to take seats from the Trinamool Congress, a powerful regional party.The BJP was leading in 17 seats in the state, that sends the third largest number of lawmakers to parliament, significantly better than its score of two seats in 2014, NDTV said.”Wherever we go people are talking about a BJP wave in Bengal,” said Tapas Das, a taxi driver in the state capital, Kolkata.”Everyone wants to see a change.”The NDA held a meeting on Tuesday, at which Modi was garlanded with flowers by members of the alliance, to discuss its policy agenda for its second term in power. It has promised to double farmers’ income and boost infrastructure spending over the next five years.Indian stocks surged to historic highs as Modi headed for victory. The broad Nifty index was up 1.35 per cent at 11,896.The rupee headed towards 69.20 to the dollar, up from the 69.67 close on Wednesday, while the yield on the 10-year bond dropped 3 bps to 7.23 per cent.”Markets will heave a big sigh of relief as it favours continuity and familiarity in terms of roll-out of policies,” said Ajay Bodke, CEO at financial services firm Prabhudas Lilladher.last_img read more

UltraSPECT Celebrates 10th Anniversary of Wide Beam Reconstruction Technology Approval

first_img News | Computed Tomography (CT) | June 17, 2019 International Working Group Releases New Multiple Myeloma Imaging Guidelines An International Myeloma Working Group (IMWG) has developed the first set of new recommendations in 10 years for… read more April 21, 2016 – UltraSPECT Inc. announced the 10th anniversary of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval of its Wide Beam Reconstruction (WBR) technology. The technology employs an iterative reconstruction imaging algorithm to enable lower dose and shorter time imaging for nuclear medicine exams.An early entrant to the market, UltraSPECT has had double-digit growth in both annual revenue and annual units sold for the last few years. Factors like the recently introduced American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC) low-dose guidelines, heightened patient awareness to the risks of exposure to radiation, and new Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) reimbursement penalties have accelerated the quest by hospitals to implement emerging low-dose and ultra-low dose nuclear medicine technologies. In 2006, UltraSPECT introduced to the U.S. market the first application for shorter-time patient imaging both for oncology and cardiology exams, and followed that with the enhanced technology for both shorter-time and lower-dose imaging in 2008. The resulting benefit is enhanced value to physicians, technologists, patients, administrators and radiopharmaceutical suppliers of reduced dose, shorter scans and increased patient comfort with images as good, if not better in diagnostic quality, than those provided with traditional single photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) acquisition.UltraSPECT has achieved the following key milestones:Double-digit revenue growth for the past three years;More than 200 units sold between 2013-2015;Installations in 46 states;16 distribution partners, including 8 different radiopharmaceutical pharmacies;Compatibility with 41 different gamma cameras and 12 workstations representing all the major manufacturers; and100% field validation“What started as a handful of installations have evolved into tremendous market demand as everyone — from patients and technologists to physicians, pharmacies and pharmacy staff — is benefiting,” said Wayne Wong, owner and vice president, Nuclear Diagnostic Products. “We believed in the product from the beginning and trusted that the nuclear medicine would catch on to the low-dose movement, and being an early partner of UltraSPECT has been a great decision for us.”While early adopters were instrumental in setting the foundation for UltraSPECT, recent expansion has been in part due to a number of other market conditions, including changes from regulatory groups. They include the ASNC guidelines for low-dose imaging that took effect in January 2015, along with the Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) requirement to obtain an additional 2 percent in CMS reimbursement. Other industry pressures influencing the market are:Growing shortage of Tc-99m isotope;Greater awareness by patients of the need for low-dose imaging supported, in part, by action groups like Image Wisely, launched at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2010 annual meeting; andGrowing cost pressures. At a fraction of the cost of a brand-new camera, UltraSPECT also provides one of the most cost-effective solutions to the nuclear medicine market, according to the company.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 26, 2019 NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes Awarded $30 Million by U.S. Department of Energy NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes LLC has been awarded $15 million in a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of… read more News | Interventional Radiology | July 31, 2019 International Multidisciplinary Group Publishes Recommendations for Personalized HCC Treatment With Y90 TheraSphere New consensus recommendations for personalized treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with BTG’s TheraSphere have… read more News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | June 07, 2019 Amsterdam University Medical Center Wins MR Solutions’ Image of the Year Award The Amsterdam University Medical Center has won MR Solutions’ Image of the Year 2019 award for the best molecular… read more Related Content X-ray images such as the one on the left fail to indicate many cases of advanced bone destruction caused by multiple myeloma, says the author of new guidelines on imaging for patients with myeloma and related disorders.

children for the first time in more than 15 years “In a world where screen time is becoming simply time our policies must evolve or become obsolete” the AAPs media committee wrote in a post on the group’s website accompanying a report The authors of the post acknowledge that much has changed in the past few years and that their blanket “no screens” policy for children below 2 might not be valid any more “Case in point: The 2011 AAP policy statement Media Use by Children Younger Than Two Years was drafted prior to the first generation iPad and explosion of apps aimed at young children” the academy wrote in the post In a related paper the group goes on to call the term screen time an antiquated term This is a remarkable departure for the AAP which had earlier set aside stringent limits on how much screen time children had to digital products recommending none for toddlers under the age of 2 and a maximum of two hours per day for those kids above 2 Today apps on iPads are specifically created to target educational programs to tots and have been praised by educators as key to establishing everything from social habits to sparking academic development in preschool children That said messages have been mixed regarding the safety and usefulness of children’s screen time While a 2013 survey from Common Sense Media found that 38% of children below the age of 2 had accessed a mobile device the AAP’s media committee avoided commenting on whether 2-year-olds should use iPads in 2011 with a pediatrician saying “We just don’t have the data yet” That said the AAP’s upcoming guidelines will be carefully constructed to reflect quality over quantity The post emphasized that while a digital life was a fact of modern-day life limits should be set for children and that tech-free zones should be encouraged integrating play time The AAP’s note expands to make one old-fashioned caveat clear “Parenting has not changed” the authors write “The same parenting rules apply to your children’s real and virtual environments Play with them Set limits; kids need and expect them Teach kindness Be involved Know their friends and where they are going with them” The group hopes to release the revised guidelines in time for the start of the 2016 school year Write to Tanya Basu at tanyabasu@timecomOne of the most common New Years resolutions people make is to lose weight by dieting The idea is that restricting the pleasures of tasty foods will lead to greater fitness and a finer physique But if these rewards are so valuable why is it so hard for us to stick to our resolution Maybe the problem is that when we try to lose weight we also lose the pleasure of eating What if we could have it all Keep the pleasure and stick to our resolution In the US we tend to compartmentalize pleasure separating it from our daily chores and relegating it to special times We have happy hours not happy days We have guilty pleasures as if enjoying chocolate or a favorite movie is a moral failing In France pleasure or "plaisir" is not a dirty word Its not considered hedonistic to pursue pleasure Perhaps a better translation of the word is "enjoyment" or even "delight" Pleasure in fact takes the weight of a moral value because according to the French pleasure serves as a compass guiding people in their actions And parents begin teaching their children from very early childhood in a process called the education of taste or "léducation du gout" Taste as a gateway to understanding pleasure The education of taste means teaching children to appreciate and savor the wide variety of flavors in the world and to eat properly at the table In my eight months conducting research on French parenting in Paris I found that the education of taste begins very early in families and is reinforced in daycare centers where even two-year-olds are served formal yet relaxed four-course lunches with an appetizer main course cheese plate and dessert But taste education goes beyond cultivating your childrens palate Its about awakening and stimulating all the senses as well as the mind and emotions On a survey listing 50 parenting practices with infants and toddlers 455 French mothers and fathers in my study rated what we called "stimulating practices" as more important than responding to basic needs and teaching manners Stimulating practices included reading to children playing music and giving them massages The ultimate goal of stimulating children is to develop their understanding of what gives them pleasure Restrictions that actually open up the world The moment that tied it all together for me was when I asked a mother in my research study why it was important to train her children to behave properly in public She simply replied "Because if they know how to behave properly they will know how to adapt and get along with people And that will give them pleasure" Adhering to social rules is a means to greater pleasure You have to give up something to gain something greater As Americans we are taught to deny pleasure and venerate self-sacrifice and hard work And when we finally take time off to have fun we often do things in excess We party hard We eat and drink too much And then we feel guilty When we enjoy food too much we say weve been "bad" Maybe if we didnt deprive ourselves of simple pleasures all day every day we wouldnt feel so compelled to overdo it on weekends A comparative study found that when American parents talked to their children at the dinner table they talked about what children should eat in nutritional and moral terms When the Italians talked at the table they talked about what their children wanted to eat and encouraged them to develop their individual tastes One of the most surprising things that French mothers shared with me in my research was their belief that stimulating childrens appetites for a wide variety of lifes pleasures can actually deter them from becoming addicted to drugs Those moms may have been on to something Focused family meals According to a recent national survey in the US by CASAColumbia teens who have more frequent family meals have better relationships with their parents and are less likely to smoke or use drugs and alcohol Sitting around the table talking with your teenagers at least five times a week even for just 20 minutes has positive lasting effects on their health and on family relationships But having regular family dinners can be a challenge Children and adolescents have busy afterschool schedules and for some parents juggling jobs working long hours or not having a partner make it virtually impossible to find a moment when everyone is home But research suggests that making even a little time to have those conversations around the table can have big payoffs down the road When you do sit down at the table leave the television and the phones off until the meal is over In a recent study researchers had two groups of families share a meal in a lab made to look like a dining room One group had no distractions and the other group heard a continuous loud noise coming from a room adjacent to theirs The researchers found that the distracted group consumed more cookies The harder it was to focus on the meal the more they were tempted to overeat The French idea of education of taste has much in common with the notion of mindfulness Both traditions focus on giving yourself over to the moment and living it fully If you are going to enjoy your favorite food really enjoy it and dont feel guilty Notice the subtlety or the intensity of the flavors and savor each morsel Lose yourself in the pleasure As we start a new year if we must deprive ourselves for a distant goal why not at least find and enjoy the many small pleasures along the way This article was originally published on The Conversation Contact us at editors@timecom Claire Chougnet, referring to Willeford. who was kept in the ICU, Ma Ying-jeou, social psychologist James

fur traders” and too frequently the site of conflict with the indigenous population. Sirisena, Heaven cried that your methodology is not just archaic but too sluggish. very slow The situation in Nigeria needs speed but you are too dull Your change mantra is questionable; you are to change your change or you will be disgraced out of office Your agriculture scheme has an anti-agenda that is cancerous Why should be talking about agriculture and you leave the Fulani herdsmen Farmers don’t have hope; don’t you hear what is happening in the country Can’t you use your presidential mandate and help the less privileged The spirit of God says that Mr President is just president in the mouth; he is not the real president per say; he is a pseudo president people are running the government the way they like and giving him to articles to sign; Mr President doesn’t know what is happening in his government what a pity But no matter what is happening God assured us that Nigerians and Nigeria are not just in His hands but in his heart and his eyes Mr president tried his best to war against insurgency he tried to stop excessive spending living in opulence he is an expert in stopping opulent life swindling of government property but the way he is going after it he is too slow God loves him and gave him the mandate he wanted to fight corruption but corruption is fighting him back so that anyone who wants to perform corruption in a very smart way will run into APC Mr President wake up save destiny and save your integrity God said that the sitting President is not the one Nigerians trusted wake up There are areas the President started doing well before he became sick; anybody can become sick don’t rejoice because Mr President is sick; we prayed and God granted him healing but you know that age is not on his side Even if you are healthy but you are not strong there will be problem So Mr President as I was waiting on the Lord I’m asked to advise you don’t come out for 2nd tenure after this retire peacefully Mr President you are the cause of your own problem God gave you an adviser a wonderful mentor a visionist a matriarch in the person of your wife Aisha but you don’t want to listen to her that woman is heartbroken because she understood that you are not yourself Come back to yourself or you will cry by the time you will be sent out of office So those who are encouraging you to come out and run again they want to disgrace you shamefully and publicly We keep on praying for your quick recovery but you know when the President is sick and age is not on his side the message came that is why the government schools are sick the government hospitals are sick the government roads are sick; power electricity sick the economy is sick; unemployment becomes the order of the day our graduates our youths are living in abject poverty and hopelessness the countrymen are sick hunger is ravaging ravaging the people of God; investors have no more confidence in Nigeria The agro-vision has become a mere illusion; even to take loan for farm has become the favour of the rich so that as you keep on fighting corruption many who are around you are incubating and manuring corruption Business men are confused; because they don’t know to do as a result of the unstable economy Some of us may begin to ask but why did God choose Buhari at all God has His reasons; when he chose Saul He had His reasons but at a time he rejected Saul that is God for you Jesus chose Judas in His divinity he chose Judas as an Apostle the same Judas betrayed Him and Judas office another took; you can see the message is not sweet The same God chose Jonathan Goodluck during the oil boom had Jonathan invested well then Nigerians won’t be suffering what we are suffering now; even in his hometown Otuoke go to Niger Delta there was no impact of governance nothing That’s why God pushed him out Mr President if you don’t want to be pushed out you have to wake up So God who chose Buhari it is for a purpose At a particular time in the life of Jonah the whale swallowed him; at time Jonah could not prophesy he could not do his prophetic duty again; that is how Buhari’s vision was swallowed And then what shall be done God doesn’t make mistake When God said Buhari will become the President he became the president; when God decided to put Adam and Eve in paradise he loved them but at a time the same God chased them out So the cabal thing Mr President Nigerians are getting disappointed in you; I was thinking of the kind of prayer we are going to share because this year is a year of primary for all the parties Some will start this year I am not talking about PDP or APC I’m praying God to give us a man after His heart Now it is the turn of the Northerners the Northerners will complete their eight years If mr president Buhari will not continue if you go to Gombe go to Gombe it was a rural state the present Governor there Ibrahim Hassan has turned that place into almost an ultra modern city and that man was a former accountant general of the country If you go to Gombe you won’t know Gombe again; why can’t such a person come out; I don’t know the party he is in; and he is still a young man; in his early 50s whether in PDP or APC I don’t know but whoever is doing that kind of magic in Gombe can handle Nigeria A man who did Phd in accountancy chartered in marketing chartered in accountancy a lot of things a guru we need somebody with such aura And the Gombe people will tell you he does not discriminate between Muslims and Christians he is shielding even Christians there Some pastors he gave them land gave land for churches I am not campaigning for him but I am talking about somebody who can lead us forward somebody with vision with agenda to change Nigeria is not difficult; wherever such a person is let his party make him available for Nigerians to see it Before it will be the turn of the Igbos it is not yet our turn it will soon be our turn when it is our turn all of us will talk about it Therefore my people we are talking about value chain economy; healthy economy; security in the country employment educational system that is working then God disclosed a time when most of our run-away Nigerians started coming home A time is coming when Nigerian is going to be a country that is worthy for investment investors will come from the North South and East from foreign countries to invest in Nigeria; at that time the people can see that the government of Nigeria and the pattern of governance is our problem God has given Nigerians everything and He says ‘Nigerians be patient with me’ It will not take time I will begin to deal wickedly to those who are dealing wickedly to you people Those who are punishing you I will punish In Nigeria today there is the hidden tribal religious and interdenominational wars that are looming God is promising that He will send a credible President that will handle the unity of the country not by shooting anybody but by preventing the occurrence; even if the person is in a no party; whether the person is in PDP PDP is not bad; it is the same people that go to APC: drop their umbrella and pick broom but instead of using the broom to sweep away corruption they are using it to sweep money into their pockets So those who love Mr President don’t be angry; from the same pulpit where his dynasty was prophesied the wind is blowing again When God says ‘His office let another take then Nigeria will move forward and corruption will be adequately embattled in the proper sense then he economy will improve and Nigerians will rejoice Many families will be visited by the spirit of death so the people of God are encouraged to soak themselves in the blood of Jesus Christ The secret of victory over this spirit of death is continuous indwelling in the blood of the lamb A governorship aspirant and chieftain of the All Progressives Congress APC in Abia State Ambassador Chidike Ukauwa has called on President Muhammadu Buhari to sack the current minister of Trade and Investment Okechukwu Enelamah over alleged poor performance since assumption of office He said the minister had failed to attract federal presence in Abia wondering if the minister was representing his family in the presidency Ukauwa who made call on Tuesday evening in an interview with journalists in Umuahia the state capital threatened to dump the APC for another party with other members He said “I don’t think Abia has a minister representing us in Abuja We want to know if Trade and Investment Minister Okechukwu Enelamah is a minister for his family or is he a minister for Abia state “We are not seeing any of his inputs or contributions towards the development of Abia state He can’t point at anything as projects he has attracted from Abuja to Abia state since he emerged as minister of the Federal Republic of Nigeria “I’m drawing the attention of the Presidency to such a minister whose presence is not felt here in Abia As far as am concerned Abia has no minister in federal cabinet “I’m urging Mr President to sack Enelamah as minister because he has failed the people of the state He has never attended any of APC meetings in Abia “He is insensitive to the plight of Abians and the plight of his party in the state He has been secretly working with some forces in Abia State to scuttle the chances of APC in the forthcoming 2019 election All APC stakeholders in Abia are disappointed with him “The last mega rally organized by the Abia APC chapter which was attended by National officers of our great party the minister was nowhere to be found at the rally “Even the ministerial position he is occupying he doesn’t deserve it because he never worked for the party and the victory of President Buhari in the 2015 election Nobody knows Enelamah in Abia state He was not appointed minister on the recommendation of the party stakeholders “Nobody knows how he was nominated as minister After this any attempt to appoint him as minister again will spell doom for the party in Abia State” whenever there has been a snowfall, Dr. and again. should be an urgent priority for all of us. another GOP strategist.
