Spring Sitting Ends with Passage of Sixth Consecutive Balanced Budget

first_imgWith unanimous consent, the government passed it sixth consecutive balanced budget for Nova Scotians. The end of the spring sitting today, April 13, means the 2007-08 budget, along with 17 government bills and two opposition bills, have become law. Central to the government’s legislative agenda is the new Environmental Goals and Sustainable Prosperity Act, which builds on some of the best work government and the private sector have done on the environment and the economy in the past few years. It recognizes that the province’s environmental assets are the foundation for long-term prosperity. “This legislation sets the stage for moving toward our government’s goal of achieving one of the cleanest and most sustainable environments in the world by 2020,” Premier Rodney MacDonald said. Legislation also includes a bill to establish a Nova Scotia Medal of Bravery, stricter rules for new drivers, legislation giving Nova Scotia workers the option to retire or continue to work when they reach the age of 65, and key changes to the Education Act to give communities a clear, predictable process so all voices and considerations are heard before a decision about a school’s future is made. “Even in the face of a looming challenge presented by the federal government after reversing its decision on the Atlantic Accord, this government has honoured its commitment to balanced budgets and debt reduction,” Premier MacDonald said. “My mandate for the province was also based on a promise to our future generations to clean up our environment. Our government has stayed true to these vital, fundamental commitments to Nova Scotians.” This year’s Financial Measures Act moves forward with a number of tax initiatives to make Nova Scotia more competitive and to encourage business investment. Changes include a tax break for volunteer firefighters, post-secondary graduates and digital media productions. Another bill establishes the legal framework for the opening of the Donkin mine and provides project developers with predictability from regulators. Also announced during the session were regulations to strengthen employers’ responsibility to protect workers from physical violence and threats of physical violence on the job. They outline the to address the risk of workplace violence in sectors where the problem is most acute. “While minority government presents its own challenges,” the premier said, “it also presents positive opportunities.” The minority government unanimously supported a motion to push for the federal government to honour the Atlantic Accord. The members also honoured the fallen on the 90th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy as well as Canadian soldiers killed on Easter Sunday, including Dartmouthian Master Cpl. Christopher P. Stannix. The House also paid tribute to the continued faithful work of the government House leader, Finance Minister Michael Baker, who guided the government through another minority sitting while continuing with his cancer treatment.last_img read more

The head of the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO) welcomed a new and significant infusion of funds for the integrated treatment of seven of the most important and neglected tropical diseases.United States President George W. Bush announced the new five-year $350 million initiative today, which will target lymphatic filariasis, schistosomiasis, blinding trachoma, onchocerciasis and three soil-transmitted helminthiases.“These are blinding, deforming, and debilitating diseases that affect the poorest of the poor,” WHO Director-General Margaret Chan said in a statement. “An intensified attack on these diseases delivers a blow against the poverty of millions of people.”She also lauded the “ambitious” new plan for seeking to control and ultimately eliminate diseases which have brought misery to so many for so long.In partnership with the US Agency for International Development (USAID), WHO can begin steps to bolster treatment immediately, Dr. Chan noted.With highly-effective drugs – which are safe and easy to administer – available, a mass prevention campaign similar to child immunization can be launched, she said. read more

Chamber names top Delhi citizens

Years of quiet caring at the Sharing Pantry food bank and elsewhere will be recognized in Delhi next month.For the past 15 years, Ruth Brown has been a driving force behind the Delhi food bank. With Brown’s help, the food bank has expanded its mandate to include the distribution of clothing and essential household items.“The Pantry is working on providing more nutritional food to make sure recipients receive a more balanced diet,” the chamber said last week in a news release. “Although the operation of the Sharing Pantry requires a number of volunteers, Ruth is the catalyst that continues to make the Sharing Pantry such a successful community resource.”Brown has lived in Delhi for 30 years. She also sits on the Delhi United Church’s board of directors and is involved with the church’s Outreach committee.Brown helps with the church’s annual coat drive and is involved with Delhi United’s monthly Messy Church crafts and activities program for young people.“We all need to help each other,” Brown says. “Why would we choose not to help if you can help?”The 59-year-old Delhi woman said she is “still a little overwhelmed” with the award.“I think the most important thing is, I may be getting recognition and thank you [for it],” Brown said. “But this is a whole group of people, not just me.”Brown and Andy Fitch manage the food bank as a team. She says Fitch has always supported her ideas or changes she wants to make.“I’m amazed what comes in and goes out, and what we can accomplish in a broom closet,” Brown said. “It’s my happy place.” This sense of community spirit also comes naturally to the chamber’s 2019 Junior Citizen of the Year. Isabella Spinella, 13, is a familiar face in Delhi wherever the call goes out for volunteers.“Isabella is a truly amazing young lady,” the chamber says in a news release.“She is the type of individual that spotted a lady in a wheelchair across the parking lot at the grocery store and ran across to help her open the trunk and put her groceries inside.”Spinella volunteers with local youth groups. She also volunteers with Delhi’s Christmas campaign, working at the breakfast with Santa, Christmas crafts and with the Santa Parade itself.Spinella shovels snow for seniors. She also visits senior homes at Christmas to play her ukulele and sing songs with her friends and hand out gift bags.Spinella is part of the Buddy program at school, helping her “little buddies” read or complete other assigned work.She is an active volunteer with wheelchair basketball and offers “date night” at her local church. There, she babysits so members can enjoy a night out without the children.This past summer, Spinella had an opportunity to give back to a peace camp offered for kids that are being bullied. She had attended the camp herself but went back this past summer as a volunteer. The program is sponsored by Haldimand-Norfolk REACH.“It feels good knowing people see what I do,” Spinella said, adding she enjoys volunteering because “It’s nice to see the smiles on people’s faces when they get help.”Spinella also volunteers on Thursday nights at the Old Town Hall in Waterford. There, she helps set up for the entertainment, selling food at the concession stand and occasionally taking the stage to play ukulele.Spinella said the Old Town Hall sponsored her for a drama program, so helping them is a way of giving back.Spinella’s grandmother Gloria MacFarlane says Isabella “is blessed to have strong Christian women in her life as good role models. She’s got a big heart.”MacFarlane said it’s good to see positive influences and notes “there are a lot of kids out there doing good things and it’s nice to see the recognition.”“She is a true example of the positive attitude of the youth in Delhi,” the chamber added.The Delhi chamber will recognize Brown and Spinella at its 2019 Gala May 8 at the Hungarian Hall.The event includes a business trade show as well as awards to area businesses.Doors open at 5:30 p.m. with supper served at 6 p.m. Tickets at $35 apiece include a full-course meal.

South Sudan Scale of refugee exodus straining capacity in neighbouring countries warns

Refugees from South Sudan arrive in Elegu, northern Uganda Photo: UNHCR/Will Swanson The situation has been further compounded by a deteriorating South Sudanese economy. Inflation has risen an unprecedented 600 per cent over the past year, causing a severe fall in the purchasing value of money. At the same time, the condition of refugee settlements is equally desperate. A particular case is Uganda, where three quarters of the refugee arrivals have headed since the outbreak of conflict in July, when the arrival rate peaked at more than 8,000 in one day. New arrivals – 90 per cent of whom are women and children, mostly from Juba and other parts of Central Equatoria – point to a breakdown in law and order in their home areas. “People cite rampant violence including killings and clashes between government forces and armed groups,” highlighted the UN refugee agency spokesperson, adding: “They also report that armed groups are robbing civilians and extorting money from them, preventing those who are unable to pay from leaving, and sexually assaulting women,” he continued. “Armed groups are also reportedly abducting children aged 12 and above from schools and threatening people. Disappearances are said to also be on the rise.” Uganda and Sudan have received an estimated 110,000 and 100,000 new arrivals respectively in 2016, together accounting for more than 90 per cent of the new arrivals in the region. To cope with the arrivals, the Government of Uganda has opened a new settlement in Yumbe, located in the north-west of the country, with a capacity for more than 100,000 individuals. But funds are urgently needed to speed the relocation of more than 45,000 refugees out of overstretched and severely congested reception and transit centres. Threat of disease outbreakMr. Edwards also noted that with people living in such close proximity, the potential for disease outbreak is high. “UNHCR teams are monitoring the situation closely, but need further resources to respond effectively,” he said. “With some reception sites accommodating more than five times their capacity, protection interventions, particularly prevention and response to sexual and gender-based violence including psychosocial services, are critical,” he added. Development of newly opened settlements areas will also require significant additional investment, and some sites that were opened earlier this year, have now been put on hold due to lack key basic infrastructure and services. Mr. Edwards also stressed that the high numbers of refugees are creating a burden on local health and education services. “There are fears that in the event of outbreak of disease, existing capacities and resources will be inadequate to respond effectively,” he said. Neighbouring countries praised for their support“[We] commend the generosity of countries that are keeping their borders open and providing South Sudanese refugees with land for settlement,” expressed the UNHCR spokesperson. “In particular, we applaud Uganda’s generous refugee law and policy regime, which among other benefits grants refugees freedom of movement, the right to seek employment and provides them with plots of land on which to build new homes and to grow agricultural crops,” he added. Mr. Edwards further noted that the agency appeals to the international community to support countries of asylum to protect and assist South Sudanese refugees. “Continuing funding shortages will further disadvantage women, children and men who need urgent sustained help to overcome the trauma of forced displacement and get on the path to recovery, self-reliance and human dignity,” he concluded. “There are already some 930,000 refugees in the region, and more are arriving daily,” Adrian Edwards, a spokesperson for the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) told journalists at the regular press briefing in Geneva today. “[We are] extremely worried that even as the refugee population grows, funds to meet basic needs are becoming exhausted,” he added. In addition to the refugee numbers, there are 1.61 million people who are displaced within South Sudan. In the midst of the humanitarian crisis, the agency is facing critical funding shortages, having received only about 20 per cent of the $608.8 million needed for refugees in South Sudan and the six countries of asylum. A number of its programmes have been suspended to enable critical live-saving support for new arrivals. Worst affected are the remote regions in Uganda, Sudan, the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and the Central African Republic (CAR), where UNHCR had no previous presence. Ethiopia and Sudan, which have experienced mass influxes, are also badly affected. Further, as the anniversary of the August 2015 peace agreement approaches, the outbreak of violence in the capital, Juba, in July, appears to have tipped the scales against an imminent political solution to the South Sudan conflict, said the agency. “There are numerous reports of sporadic armed clashes, human rights violations including sexual and gender-based violence by armed groups, and worsening food insecurity – inflicting immense suffering,” noted Mr. Edwards. Especially concerning is that the situation in previously stable areas is now deteriorating. Some 200,000 individuals have been fleeing new violence in previously stable areas such as Greater Equatoria and Greater Bahr-el-Ghazal. read more

Fortnite season 8 week 4 challenges and how to search buried treasure

first_img The 17 most anticipated video games of 2019 Video Games Epic Games It’s season 8, week 4 of the Fortnite: Battle Royale Battle Pass and that means new challenges. Both the free and Battle Pass challenges look to be pretty standard this week, with only a couple that are going to require maps and I’ve included them below. With the launch of Apex Legends’ Battle Pass earlier this week, I was gearing up to write challenges posts for each game, but in Apex Legends, you gain experience simply by playing. For now, it appears Fortnite still outpaces its challengers when it comes to getting players to come back week after week. Regardless of which game you like better, you have to admit that having specific goals to shoot for adds something special to the game. We’ll have to see what Apex Legends does in future seasons, but I feel like developer Respawn missed a big opportunity there.If you haven’t finished last week’s challenges, head over to my season 8, week 3 guide.s8w4challenges Jason Parker/CNET FreeStage 1 of 5: Land at Tilted Towers (0/1)Use the Baller in different matches (0/5)Get an elimination with a scoped weapon and a suppressed weapon (0/2)Battle PassLaunch yourself through structures with a pirate cannon (0/25)Search buried treasure (0/2)Eliminate opponents at Happy Hamlet or Pleasant Park (0/3)Stage 1 of 3: Outlast 60 opponents in a single match (0/6)How to do stage 1 of 5: Land at Tilted TowersThis standard challenge is one we’ve seen many times, but all you need to know is all the places you have to land for the remaining stages. Here’s a map with each stage, in order:fortnitemaps8w4landlocations Jason Parker/CNET How to use the Baller in different matchesThe Baller is Fortnite’s most recent new vehicle and it’s a lot of fun to use. For this challenge you’ll have to use it for five different matches, so if you focus on grabbing a Baller at the beginning of every match, you can take this out while doing other challenges. Here’s where every Baller is on the island:fortnitemapballerlocations Jason Parker/CNET How to get an elimination with a scoped weapon and a suppressed weaponThis one should be pretty easy to complete because you’ll likely get eliminations with these weapons naturally over the course of the week. Just try to keep in mind when you find suppressed weapons and anything with a scope, you should make it your primary weapon. You only need one kill each, so it shouldn’t take long.How to launch yourself through structures with a pirate cannonLooks like we’re going to be seeing a lot of people blasting themselves through the air this week. You can complete this challenge anywhere there’s a pirate cannon and you might try playing Team Rumble for the ability to respawn to get it done quickly. While there are cannons all over the map, Lazy Lagoon has the highest concentration and there are plenty of structures to topple if you go there. Here’s where to find Lazy Lagoon and all the cannons on the island:fortnitemappiratecannons Jason Parker/CNET How to search buried treasureThere is no specific location to send you for this challenge because treasure maps are random items you find in chests and in ground loot. When you find one, follow the red dotted line to where X marks the spot, then use your pickax to dig for the treasure. You only need two to complete the challenge, so just keep this one in the back of your mind and start searching the second you find a treasure map.How to eliminate opponents at Happy Hamlet or Pleasant ParkIt’s nice to be able to choose where you want to complete this one. Both locations will likely be crowded at the beginning of the week making it much easier. If you’re getting to this challenge later in the week, I would probably choose Pleasant Park over Happy Hamlet because more people like to land there, in my experience.How to do stage 1 of 3: Outlast 60 opponents in a single matchThis staged quest gets harder with each stage, but it might be bugged. In stage 2, you’ll need to outlast 70 opponents and in stage 3 you’ll need to outlast 80. I went into a game to test whether you could complete more than one stage in a single match. The problem is I got 6th place and didn’t get credit for any of the stages. If your experience is different, let me know in the comments, but I’ll update this post once I find out more. 0 How is Apex Legends different from Fortnite and PUBG?

Meet the flying hospital fighting to save the broken hearts of Tanzanias

first_imgOn a monitor above the surgeons heads, a red and green 0 indicates Juniors heart has been stopped. The medics get to work quickly, their fingers moving carefully around the ten or so wires protruding out of the three-year-olds chest. After a while, the heart jumps back to life.More than a million babies worldwide are born every year with a congenital heart defect. Of these, one tenth will not live to see their first birthday. While corrective surgery is normally performed within weeks of the birth, in Tanzania and other developing countries, poverty and a lack of cardiac specialists or facilities mean many go untreated.Junior is being operated on in Muhimbili National Hospital in the Tanzanian port city of Dar es Salaam. It is the only medical centre in the vast, east African country of 50 million that is equipped for open-heart surgery. His mother is sitting in the corridor outside the operating theatre, waiting anxiously to find out if her son has survived the high-risk but life-saving surgery.He is one of dozens of children being treated by a team of specialists from the UK-based NGO Muntada Aid. The group of 35 surgeons, doctors and nurses fly out to developing countries to carry out surgeries, provide medical equipment and train locals to diagnose and treat children with congenital heart disease as part of the charitys Little Hearts project.We treat around 65 to 85 patients per mission, says Dr Jameel Al-Ata, a paediatric cardiologist from Saudi who is leading the Tanzania mission. Since the Little Hearts project started in 2008, the team have operated on or catheterised more than 3,000 patients. We target countries with poor cardiac service – we have been to Kazakhstan, Yemen, Egypt, Syria, Jordan, Bangladesh. Our target is the poor child with congenital heart disease who cannot get the service.We train the people we go to, Al-Ata says. We sometimes see how much assistance the locals can give us and we cut that from our team – not because we want to make our team smaller, but because we like to use them to help us, so they can learn, too.In Tanzania, there are only a handful of surgeons able to perform open heart surgery. Although sub-Saharan Africa shoulders more than 24% of the global disease burden, it is home to just 3% of the global health workforce. And despite relative domestic stability in the country, many still live in poverty – a major barrier to accessing healthcare.Frora is from Shinyanga, a city in northern Tanzania. She has travelled more than 600 miles for her four-year- old son, Innocent, to be treated. He is one of the lucky ones: he received surgery several days ago.The problem was with his breathing, he was crying, he could not do anything. He was sleeping a lot, he was sweating, Frora says, sitting at the end of Innocents hospital bed.Flying hospitalCongenital heart disease is particularly prevalent in developing countries, in part, because of a lack of maternal healthcare. While there is no obvious cause, the mother having certain infections such as rubella and poorly controlled type 1 and type 2 diabetes can increase the risk of heart defects.Because Muhimbili is the only hospital which can provide paediatric heart surgery in Tanzania, parents have travelled from across the country with the hope of curing their sons and daughters. Twenty children have arrived from the island of Zanzibar, off the Tanzanian coast.First, our waiting list is long – you are talking 500 patients on the list by the end of last year, says Dr Mohamed Janabi, head of the cardiac centre at Muhimbili. And the majority of all patients – around 70% of them – cannot afford to pay. The third, which is the most important thing, is that we have a mass training of five, 10, 15 doctors at the same time – in the theatre, the cath lab or in intensive care. It means we are not going to become mission-dependent, Janabi says.Health insurance is still low in Tanzania. Because of this, many people rely on direct payment at the point of use of health care. In most cases, this denies the poorest access to much-needed treatment. Though the coverage is not where we want it, it is growing, Janabi adds. I wish the coverage would reach more people because then we can just operate.Not all of the children at Muhimbili need open-heart surgery. The hospital is also equipped with a cath lab – where the team can do less-invasive heart operations using a probe, balloons and stents passed through a catheter.Innocent had open-heart surgery to fix his condition. Dr Mohammad Shihata, one of the surgeons who treated him, says it is like a flying hospital – but Tanzania poses certain challenges not usually faced in developed countries.A lot of people have been missed for so long, or havent had the chance to get access to healthcare, so they are really delayed. The human body is not built to sustain low levels of oxygen for prolonged periods of time, or too much volume load to one side of the heart, he says.Another challenge is a shortage of blood in banks – so much so that the head of the intensive care unit and the charitys project manager donate blood after one patient develops complications after surgery.You cannot help everybodyWith so many sick children in desperate need of care, it is difficult not to let emotion get in the way. Dr Khalid Kamal Al-Hroub, the head of intensive care, says you have to brush feelings to one side. Sometimes with emotion you can panic and lose it. But it is better to hold up and be calm, he says. He is approaching his 40th mission and has travelled across Africa and the Middle East. If you dont do this surgery, they will die, Al-Hroub explains.In his ICU team is Zeba Butt, a 29-year-old nurse from Lahore, Pakistan. I dont feel any difficulty emotionally because I know Im working to make things better, so I should not be emotional. If I am emotional, how can I do my job?Her face crumples slightly when she talks about working in her native country – which has one of the highest rates of children born with congenital heart disease in the world. Each year, between 40,000 and 50,000 children are born with heart defects, but it has just eight paediatric heart surgeons. I have pity for my nation, Butt says. I want the help to go there.It is impossible for the team to treat all of the children with heart defects in Tanzania, which is one of the most difficult challenges. The families are really appreciative. But then towards the end, when you start to close the mission, you still have some people on your list, Dr Hayam Aboremsh, a cardiologist from Jeddah who works alongside her husband in the team. It is a bit emotional because you cannot help everybody.For the lucky ones, the surgery is a lifeline. But others must rely on the teams long-term goal – to train enough Tanzanian medics so they dont need outside help.Two-year-old Shabani was diagnosed with congenital heart disease when he was four months old. His mother, Halima, noticed his pulse and breathing was fast and took him to the local clinic. He was referred to Muhimbili. I heard there were operations being done, I was told my son would be included, she says. Now he is good. He is happy. Before he was very weak but now I think he will be good. He will go to school, he can do anything because now he is not sick at all. Now he is recovering, we say thanks.IBTimes UK travelled to Muhimbili National Hospital courtesy of Muntada Aid.last_img read more

first_img Posted by << Previous PostNext Post >> Share Travelweek Group Tags: Nicaraguacenter_img TORONTO — Unspoiled natural beauty, crystal clear beaches, and an exceptionally welcoming culture has propelled Nicaragua “from anonymity to adoration”, says the Nicaraguan Tourism Board.Nestled between Costa Rica and Honduras, this Central American gem is enjoying a tourism renaissance.Here are five must-do experiences for any client still unacquainted with Central America’s new up-and-comer, courtesy of the Nicaraguan Tourism Board…THE ADVENTURERich in both authentic culture and biodiversity, Nicaragua is an adventurer’s paradise. With 78 protected areas and a plethora of natural parks, the hiker, the spelunker and kayaker will be spoiled for choice. Ever heard of Volcano Sandboarding? It’s been described as “unforgettable on the way up, exhilarating on the way down”. Meanwhile Nicaragua’s Cerro Negro is another kind of paradise, with 2,400 feet of volcanic vistas and undisturbed natural wonder. Clients can cap off a day of hiking to the caldera with a joyride down the black sand slope. Needless to say, the faint-hearted need not apply.ECO-EXPERIENCESEternally misty and more than a little mysterious, Nicaragua’s famous cloud forests tempt travellers with a hiking experience unlike any other. Charming sky bridges snake between secluded rainforest canopies, the thrill of tropical birds and rare howler monkeys punctuating the ambiance. Whether you’re wandering the walkways of Maderas or soaring through Mombacho by zipline, Nicaragua’s natural beauty will leave clients on cloud nine, says the tourism board.More news:  Flight Centre Travel Group takes full ownership of Quebec-based agencyTHE LUXURYIn a part of the world with no shortage of all-inclusive resorts vying for your client’s patronage, Nicaragua stands out from the crowd, says the tourism board. The key to Nicaragua’s success? Diversity in experience. The versatility of Nicaragua as a destination means that all-inclusives go beyond the beach and offer attractions like horseback riding and river rafting. In the 500-year old colonial city of Granada, clients can stay at Hotel Plaza Colón. For those seeking inner peace, Jicaro Lodge is a private island getaway to nourish the soul. If clients are craving R&R they might gravitate to Yemaya Island Getaway & Spa or the remote island splendor of Little Corn Beach and Bungalow, recently recognized as one of the best affordable island hotels in the world.THE HISTORYWith a fascinating and complex history, Nicaragua has a richness in art, architecture, and culture that any other country would be envious of, says the tourism board. Nowhere is this more evident than in Granada, Nicaragua’s oldest city and cultural centre. Resplendent with classic colonial architecture and anachronistic charm, Granada is the sum of Nicaragua’s history crystallized into one dynamic destination. “Whether you’re wandering the streets and museums or just taking in the performances in the square, Granada is one history lesson you won’t want to sleep through.”More news:  Beep, beep!
