Côte dIvoire UN condemns firing at helicopter and killing of civilians

29 March 2011The United Nations peacekeeping force in Côte d’Ivoire reported today that one of its helicopters was shot at by forces loyal to the country’s President-elect and denounced the killing of a dozen civilians in the commercial capital, Abidjan, by another armed group. The United Nations peacekeeping force in Côte d’Ivoire reported today that one of its helicopters was shot at by forces loyal to the country’s President and denounced the killing of a dozen civilians in the commercial capital, Abidjan, by another armed group.“Elements of the Forces Républicaines de Côte d’Ivoire (FRCI) fired at the helicopter, but failed to hit it,” said the mission, known as UNOCI, strongly condemning yesterday’s attack against the helicopter, which it said could be considered a war crime. The FRCI support Alassane Ouattara, who won the UN-certified and internationally recognized presidential elections last November.The attack took place while the helicopter was on a reconnaissance flight above the western Ivorian town of Duékoué, the scene of fierce fighting in recent days between the FRCI and forces loyal to Laurent Gbagbo, the former president who refuses to cede power despite losing to Mr. Ouattara at the polls.In another violent incident yesterday, the mission said pro-Gbagbo forces shot at innocent civilians in the Abidjan suburb of Williamsville, killing about a dozen people.A group of pro-Gbagbo youths also put a tyre around a young man and burned him alive in the Riviera area of Abidjan, while another gang savagely attacked two UNOCI staff members.“UNOCI condemns this wave of atrocities against civilians and warns that these acts will not go unpunished,” the mission said in a statement.“With the increase in human rights violations and barbaric practices, there are grounds for wondering whether President Gbagbo is still in charge of his forces and supporters. UNOCI believes it is imperative to end this spiral of violence by finding a definitive solution to the political impasse which stemmed from the post-electoral crisis,” it added.UNOCI urged authorities concerned to do everything in their power to identify those responsible for yesterday’s firing at its helicopter so that they can be held accountable for their action.The mission “reiterates its military impartiality and once again urges all the parties to quickly find a definitive solution to the post-electoral crisis in order to end the suffering of the Ivorian people,” it added.The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), meanwhile, said a total of 116,000 Ivorian refugees have fled to eight countries in West Africa, with all but 4,000 of them having entered Liberia.“With each new clash in western Côte d’Ivoire, Liberia is in turn seeing new arrivals of refugees,” spokesperson Melissa Fleming told reporters in Geneva. She said Liberia’s western county of Grand Gedeh has over the past week received the largest influx of Ivorian refugees.People fleeing Côte d’Ivoire have also sought refuge in Ghana, Togo, Guinea, Mali, Burkina Faso, Benin and Nigeria, according to UNHCR.The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said the appeal for funds to assist refugees in Liberia has been revised with requirements almost tripled to $146.5 million for an estimated 150,000 refugees. Some $35 million has been received so far, according to spokesperson Elisabeth Byrs.The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) announced that it would focus on three tasks in Côte d’Ivoire – getting 800,000 children back to school; ensuring basic health care for mothers and children; and providing an estimated 1.5 million people in the north and west with reliable access to electricity and water.UNICEF spokesperson Marixie Mercado told reporters in Geneva that the achievement of those goals would depend of the level of funding, saying that only about 20 per cent of UNICEF’s $33 million funding appeal had so far been met.According to Fadéla Chaib, spokesperson for the UN World Health Organization (WHO), a vaccination campaign against yellow fever was launched on 25 March and would continue until 1 April, targeting some 2 million people in south-eastern Côte d’Ivoire.Some 700,000 children between the ages of nine months and five years would also be given vitamin A and de-worming medication.

Hardscrabble children sell corn in the heat by Indias roads

by Vaishnavee Sharma, The Associated Press Posted Jun 11, 2017 11:16 pm MDT Last Updated Jun 12, 2017 at 6:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NOIDA, India – Every 100 metres (330 feet) or so along a busy expressway on the outskirts of New Delhi, you’ll find a child selling corn — quite possibly a child too young to be working legally.Twelve-year-old Prakash is one of them. Lolling amid the discarded husks from earlier sales, he doesn’t seem bothered by the 40 degree Celsius heat (100 degrees Fahrenheit) or the buzzing flies. “We all work together and live together,” he says, gesturing toward 15 or so other boys working the highway.Each is dropped off by their employer every morning with a sack full of boiled corn. They spend their days trying to flag down drivers. They don’t leave until their sacks are empty, sometimes 12 hours later.Are all as young as Prakash? There’s no way to be sure. Each seems to change their age with each answer, often forgetting the number they previously mentioned. Most are careful, however, to use a number above 14 — the legal age in India to work in non-family enterprises. Young men, whom the boys claim are their elder brothers, patrol the highway on motorcycles, ensuring business runs smoothly. They also tell them not to speak to visiting journalists.Most comply, anxious to keep jobs that pay about $80 per month — far more than they could earn back home. All the boys have moved to Noida, southeast of New Delhi, from rural villages in search of work.On Monday, the World Day Against Child Labor, the International Labour Organization said 168 million children are labourers, or about one in nine children overall.India, in its 2011 census, estimated the country had 8.3 million child labourers. Uttar Pradesh state, where Noida is located, alone accounted for 1.8 million of that total. UNICEF says child labour has declined overall in India but its urban areas have seen an increase.Meanwhile, Prakash and the other boys are still selling their corn late in the afternoon. Their sacks are not yet empty.___Follow Vaishnavee Sharma on Twitter at http://twitter.com/veesharma07 In this Thursday June 8, 2017 photo, Indian boy Bhure, poses as he sits near his make shift corn stall along a busy expressway in Noida, India.

Dotting the i Slob mentality alive with Prince

OSU sophomore offensive tackle Isaiah Prince (59) prepares to make a block during the Buckeyes game against Oklahoma Sept. 17 at Gaylord Family Memorial Stadium. The Buckeyes won 45-24. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorChase Farris was an intimidating force for the Ohio State offensive line last season. Replacing him could have caused plenty of headaches for the Buckeyes, but sophomore right tackle Isaiah Prince has proven to be effective in the starting role.Prince, a native of Greenbelt, Maryland, is a former four-star recruit who was considered the best player from his state. On Signing Day, he signed with the Buckeyes, boosting an already large haul for OSU.Paving the way for redshirt freshman Mike Weber on the ground and protecting redshirt junior quarterback J.T. Barrett’s right side, Prince has been instrumental in the success of the offensive unit for OSU regardless of his young age. Currently, the Buckeyes have surrendered just two sacks through four games, and average 332 yards rushing per contest.“For me personally, there was no pressure.”  Prince said. “This is something we’ve been preparing every day in the winter and spring.”A young lineman stepping into the starting lineup for OSU is no small accomplishment. Orlando Pace, John Hicks, Jim Lachey and Nick Mangold are a few former OSU offensive lineman who have had their names go down in Buckeye history.After backing up now-NFL talents in both Taylor Decker and Farris, Prince has had large expectations about his play. Even though he has earned his way into the lead role at right tackle, OSU offensive line coach Greg Studrawa said he and fellow tackle and junior left tackle Jamarco Jones still need to improve.“I’m pleased with some of the things they’re doing, and I’m not pleased with some things they’re doing,” Studrawa said. “But they’re growing.”Against Oklahoma, the offense for OSU faced a tough task in the defensive unit of the Sooners. Although Barrett tossed four touchdowns that evening, the night belonged to the lineman and the running backs for the Buckeyes.All told, OSU had 291 yards on the ground, and averaged 6.1 yards per carry. Multiple long runs, including Weber’s 35-yard scamper in the second half, were off the right side.Prince, standing at a massive 6-foot-7, 310 pounds, seems to swallow up opposing defensive ends and linebackers before they can even get out of their stance. A man of few words, the Maryland native has let his play do the talk this season.Overall, Prince said he has improved in basically every way, with an extreme emphasis on his pass protection and run blocking.In multiple times this season, Prince has collapsed the entire right side of the opponent’s defensively line single-handedly. Teamed up with redshirt junior guard Billy Price, running plays to the right has paid dividends in the form of big gains for the OSU offense.The ability to dominate may be impressive, but it’s business as usual for Prince.“Anything to help the team,” Prince said. “Anything to help (Weber), (Barrett), anyone of them pop through. That’s my job. That’s what I’m supposed to do.”With a multitude of talent lost to the NFL, fans were anxious to see how OSU coach Urban Meyer would replace such skilled players. “The Slobs,” the self-imposed moniker of the offensive line, seemed to be a thing of the past after the 2015 season.Redshirt senior center Pat Elflein insisted the name would stay, and the players moving up were more than worthy of the coveted title.Considering how Prince has played so far this season, it seems fitting that when asked if his name can be considered a part of the group of mauling blockers, he only smiled and offered a short reply.“Yeah, I’m a Slob,” Prince said. read more

Adidas and AriZona Iced Tea to Release RiotFree Second Collaboration

first_imgStay on target Star Wars x Adidas Ultraboost Photos Have LeakedBest Sneakers of Summer 2019 In the modern sneaker game, riots are something of a slightly-distant memory. We’ve come a long way from the days of the notorious 2011 Air Jordan 11 Concord drama. That said, can you blame sneakerheads for raising a little hell over 99-cent pairs of shoes?Let’s backtrack for a second: earlier this summer, adidas announced a unique collaboration with AriZona Iced Tea. Yeah, you read that right. The collaboration featured a lineup of four sneakers with colorways themed around cans of AriZona Iced Tea. They were, shockingly, kinda dope as hell. And while the shoes were scheduled to receive a regular wide release, their big debut involved a pop-up in New York at which fans would be able to purchase a can of AriZona Sweet (or Green) Tea for the long-standing price of 99 cents — and get a pair of the shoes for free with it.A colorway of the new adidas x AriZona Iced Tea Continental Vulc sneaker, dropping September 1. (Photo Credit: adidas)Reader, you may be surprised to hear that quite a few people showed up for this event. So many so that it was shut down by the NYPD before it even had a chance to open. Gone were the 99-cent sneakers. Gone was the dream. The four shoes received a release eventually but sold out quickly and are still in high demand. The Green Tea Yung-1 has resold for as much as $600 since then.Never fear, though. Now that the dust has settled, the brands are back at it with a bigger drop and a wider release (and, hopefully, a riot-free one). This new drop features a whopping 12 sneakers with an array of festive, vibrant prints paying homage to a variety of AriZona beverages. The line is largely based around the adidas Continental Vulc, but they threw in a few pairs of classic slides for the summer vibes.A colorway of the adidas x AriZona Iced Tea Continental Vulc sneaker. (Photo Credit: adidas)As far as colorways go, there are quite a few choices for fans to pick from. The highlight is easily the Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey colorway, which was also incorporated into the first drop. However, don’t sleep on the Watermelon or Mucho Mango colorways.The adidas x AriZona Iced Tea Adilette slide. (Photo Credit: adidas)Does this collaboration make a ton of sense? Nope. Do we care? Not even a little bit. Against all odds, the adidas x AriZona collaboration has been one of the highlights of the summer for sneakerheads and while we can’t rightfully condone riots by any means, it just makes the story of how these shoes came to be all the more entertaining.A colorway of the adidas x AriZona Iced Tea Continental Vulc sneaker.

It is estimated that more than one-third of children and adolescents in the United States are overweight or obese. Obesity in adolescence is associated with a number of health risks, including cardiovascular disease and diabetes.The study at the University of Sao Paulo in Brazil included 59 obese adolescents between the ages of 11 and 18, and 61 healthy control adolescents matched for gender, age, socio-economicl classification and education level. The adolescents were classified by the World Health Organization criterion for obesity. They had no other known chronic diseases or conditions. The study participants underwent diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) of the brain to evaluate white matter integrity.DTI is a type of MRI exam that measures functional anisotropy (FA), the microscopic motion of water molecules within and surrounding the brain’s white matter fibers. Low FA values indicate greater disruption within the white matter.”DTI is a relatively new MRI technique not widely used in clinical diagnosis,” said study author Pamela Bertolazzi, a biomedical scientist and Ph.D. student in the neuroimaging laboratory at the University of Sao Paulo.The results showed loss of white matter integrity in several brain regions in the obese patients. Compared to the healthy controls, the brains of the obese adolescents showed a decrease in FA values in areas of the brain including the amygdala, hippocampus, thalamus, cingulate gyrus, fornix, insula, putamen, orbital gyrus and bilateral hypothalamus. Several of these regions are involved in appetite regulation, impulse control, emotions and reward and pleasure in eating.”The data reveal a pattern of involvement among brain regions that are important in the control of appetite and emotions,” Bertolazzi said. “There was no region of higher FA in obese patients compared to the control group,” she added.The researchers hope that these findings will offer new tools to combat this global public health crisis.”Childhood obesity has increased 10 to 40 percent in the last 10 years in most countries,” Bertolazzi said. “If we are able to identify the brain changes associated with obesity, this DTI technique could be used to help prevent obesity and avoid the complications associated with the condition.”Co-authors are Prof. Fabio Duran, Ph.D., Naomi Costa, Prof. Cristiane Kochi, Ph.D., Prof. Marilia Seelaender, Ph.D., Thaysa Neves, Ph.D., Elie Calfat, Ph.D., and Prof. Ricardo Riyoiti Uchida, Ph.D.For more information: www.radiologyinfo.org Related Content News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more Technology | Interventional Radiology | August 16, 2019 Profound Medical Receives U.S. FDA 510(k) Clearance for Tulsa-Pro Profound Medical Corp. announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to… read more Read about other Key RSNA 2017 Study Presentations, Trends and Video.
