Red The Angry Bird Goes Green In Support Of Signing Of Paris

first_imgIn honor of Earth Day and the historic signing of the Paris agreement on climate change last week, Red the Angry Bird continues to support the United Nations as part of their Angry Birds for a Happy Planet campaign.To commemorate the day the United Nations Postal Administration has issued special edition stamps featuring Red, and a new Public Service Announcement video, featuring the U.S. voice talent from “The Angry Birds Movie,” Jason Sudeikis, Josh Gad, and Maya Rudolph, was also released to support the Paris agreement.The Paris agreement sends a clear signal that the transformation of the global economy to low-emission, climate-resilient growth is inevitable, beneficial and already under way. To keep the global spotlight focused on climate change and build on the strong political momentum from Paris, the UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has invited all Heads of State and Government to participate in the signing ceremony. A record number of well over 165 countries are expected to sign the landmark agreement to tackle climate change at a ceremony at UN headquarters today.Red, who was appointed Honorary Ambassador for Green on the International Day of Happiness by the United Nations on March 20, 2016, “toured” in over 20 countries to promote the #AngryBirdsHappyPlanet campaign aimed at promoting the International Day of Happiness and encouraging people to take action against climate change and its impacts. The campaign, a partnership with Sony Pictures Entertainment, the United Nations, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and UN Foundation, asks the general public across the world to make the Angry Birds happy by taking actions on climate change and its impacts and sharing their photos and commitments on social media using the hashtag, which has made close to 600 million impressions so far.The honorary ambassadorship was announced by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon at UN Headquarters in New York with Sudeikis, Gad, Rudolph and “The Angry Birds Movie” filmmakers John Cohen, Catherine Winder and Mikael Hed in attendance last month.The commemorative stamps feature Red taking action to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goal #13 on climate action, which includes suggestions to: • Walk, cycle, or take public transport • Conserve water • Reduce, reuse, recycle • Bring your own reusable bag to the store • Turn off the lights and unplug • Plant a garden or treeStamps are available for purchase online or at the United Nations stamp counters in New York, Geneva and Vienna.“Further to the tremendous honor bestowed upon Red from ‘The Angry Birds Movie’ by Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, we are excited to continue our support for the United Nations in its efforts against climate change and to help share the message that we need to make every day Earth Day,” said John Cohen, producer of “The Angry Birds Movie.”“The creative community makes an indelible impact on the hearts and minds of people of all ages,” added Maher Nasser, Director of the Outreach Division of the UN’s Department of Public Information. “We are grateful to Red and our friends at Sony Pictures for putting their talents and resources behind a fun and meaningful drive encouraging all of us to take responsibility for our planet’s health. As long as these issues exist, I hope we can count on the entertainment industry to use its megaphone in this way.”For more information: read more

Experts tell inquiry to enforce Canadas Human Right obligations

first_imgTom Fennario APTN NewsA Manitoba professor says housing, education and health services are not policy issues – but human rights issues.“Sometimes, particularly when we refer to human rights there’s this idea that they’re just moral precepts and what Canada could be doing or should be doing, when in fact they are law with binding obligations,” Brenda Gunn told the inquiry on day three of the hearings in Wendat.Gunn recommends the inquiry identify Canada’s human rights obligations, and then hold the country to read more

Report China is driving use of armed drones in Middle East

first_imgBEIRUT — The use of armed drones in the Middle East, driven largely by growing sales from China, has grown significantly in the past few years with an increasing number of state and non-state actors using them in regional conflicts.That’s according to a new report by the Royal United Services Institute, or RUSI. The report was released on Monday. It found that more and more Mideast countries have acquired armed drones, either by importing them or by building them domestically.China has exploited America’s selective drone export policy to become an increasingly influential player in meeting demand.The report, entitled “Armed Drones in the Middle East: Proliferation and Norms in the Region,” says China is likely to continue playing a key role as supplier of armed UAVs to the region.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Too much needless NHS treatment says Royal College as it draws up

first_imgstatins  Simon Stevens GP earnings are linked to meeting NHS targets, which include those for drug prescribing Credit:Alamy  It came as Simon Stevens, head of the NHS, said GPs were being driven by “box ticking” systems – which link their pay to treatment targets – which would now be phased out.The list drawn up by medics includes a string of investigative procedures which it says are of little or no benefit. For example, patients with lower back pain should not be offered X-rays, unless there are other concerning symptoms, the report says, while children suffering “buckle” fractures do not need plaster casts.In other cases, it says patients should be told more about the side-effects they may face before deciding whether to embark on treatment.Most controversially, it suggests chemotherapy for advanced cancer should be carefully considered, as “benefit is likely to be small, and the harm may be great,” the report says.It also recommends against regular scans for terminally ill patients, and routine checks for patients who have undergone cataracts and other common forms of surgery.Dame Sue said the changes were not primarily about saving the NHS money, but about having an “intelligent conversation” with patients.“Patients should ask ‘what would happen if I do nothing?’” she said.In time, the Academy will draw up a list of up to 150 treatments in common use which should be reconsidered, she said. NHS sign Fertility  “We all have a duty to look after resources in healthcare, especially when the NHS is under so much pressure, but that’s not the main motivation for this initiative,” Dame Sally said.“What’s much more important is that both doctors and patients really question whether the particular treatment is really necessary. Medicine or surgical interventions don’t need to be the only solution offered by a doctor and more certainly doesn’t always mean better.”Making better decisions would speed up access to treatment for other patients, in need, she said.“For some of these treatments it would simply be better for the patients if they weren’t being used,” she said. “In others, the fact you are giving them to patients who do not need them is meaning that the patients who do need them need to wait longer.” The new campaign urges patients to ask questions of doctors when treatment is recommendedCredit:Dominic Lipinski/PA center_img Fertility charities say IVF ratioining is the worst it has been for more than a decade Credit:PA  The intervention follows a survey of 500 doctors which found 83 per cent had prescribed or carried out treatments they considered unnecessary.The research by the Medix consultancy found that 20 per cent of cases involved antibiotics, while 16 per cent related to X-rays, and 14 per cent to CT scans or blood tests.Overall, 63 per cent of doctors polled said they had proceeded with treatments or prescriptions because of fear of litigation, with just as many saying they had been driven by patient pressures. When it came specifically to decisions to order interventions which were thought to be needless, patient expectations were the key factor cited.Dame Sue said too many doctors were ordering interventions from force of habit, or in order to satisfy patient expectations.Adrienne Betteley, From Macmillan Cancer Support, said: “Every single person living with cancer, regardless of what stage they are at, should have access to the treatment and the support they need.“Chemotherapy is a crucial part of cancer treatment, having had an enormous impact on rising survival rates over the years,” she said. “However, it can result in severe side effects therefore, it’s important that health care professionals consider the full impact when delivering something so powerful.”Last year the NHS recorded a deficit of £2.45bn – the highest in its history – amid deepening rationing of treatments, including IVF and cataracts, as services draw up plans to attempt to reduce spending.The academy said doctors needed to help the NHS spend money wisely, but said the needs of patients must be put first. The head of the NHS, Simon Stevens, last week said a system of performance pay for GPs had “descended into too much of a box ticking exercise”Credit:PA  Doctors are giving too many patients tests and drugs they do not need, senior medics have warned, as they published a list of 40 treatments which should no longer be in routine use.The unprecedented intervention by the Academy of Medical Royal Colleges (AMRC) follows research which found doctors commonly ordering X-ray, scans and drugs, in cases they believed to be pointless.More than six in 10 medics said their decisions had been driven by a fear of litigation, with just as many saying they ordered interventions because they felt under pressure from patients.The Academy – which represents all 21 medical royal colleges in the UK – has today drawn up a list of 40 treatments and procedures which it says are of little or no benefit to patients.Prof Dame Sue Bailey, AMRC chairman, said doctors and patients should question whether interventions were “really necessary” before embarking on tests and treatments. It came as a study suggested that up to 46,000 patients a year are dying because NHS treatments are not as good as those available in other countries.Former cabinet minister Owen Paterson said it was time to “debunk the myth” that the UK has the best healthcare system in the world.The study examined 32 countries, for treatment of a range of diseases, ranking the UK 23rd or lower for each condition. Speaking at the launch of the report by think tank UK2020, Mr Paterson said it was considered “almost unpatriotic” to criticise the NHS, which was preventing improvement being made.An independent review of drugs access, commissioned by the Government, today pledges  to speed up access to new advances in treatment.The report said streamlined processes could bring forward access to new drugs by up to four years.Health Minister Lord Prior said: “This Government has a strong commitment to the life sciences and to building a long-term partnership with the life sciences industry. We are determined to make the UK the best place in the world to develop new drugs and other products that can transform the health of patients.”Treatments and investigations that may bring “little or no benefit to patients,” according to the Academy of Medical Royal collegesX-rays for lower back pain, if no other concerning featuresPlaster casts for children suffering small wrist fractures which will heal themselves with a removable splintChemotherapy for those in the final months of terminal cancerBlood tests to diagnose the menopause, if women are over 45 and suffering typical symptomsAspirin, heparin or progesterone to reduce the chance of miscarriagesThe new campaign Choosing Wisely urges patients to ask doctors five questions when seeking treatment.

Juvenile offenders were sent to their rooms for up to 2 hours

first_imgRead: Bed available at Oberstown for young boy following judge’s comments>Read: Funding secured to end detention of children in adult prison A REPORT FROM the Health Information and Quality Authority (HIQA) recommended that a “points system”, where children are sent to their rooms for half an hour up to 4 times a day, “needed to cease”.The system, which has since been removed, was in place to allow staff to discuss the behaviour of offenders, a HIQA report into Oberstown House in Lusk said.The HIQA report was published this week, finding that the school staff had fully implemented all of the thirteen recommendations made in an action plan for the facility. That plan was made in response to an earlier inspection at the facility, which was carried out in November 2011.That inspection recommended that the school should offer more independence and privacy to young people,  should more closely analyse complaints made by detainees and should ensure that young people were afforded outdoor opportunities. All of those recommendations were met, as well as recommendations regarding the food available at the centre and a review of the use of restraints.The inspection added that young people at the North Dublin facility attend school more regularly and enjoy it more.Oberstown has recently been criticised by a  Children’s Court judge for having open beds that are not being used because of a staff rostering issue. This was raised in the report, which said that the school should ensure that staffing deployed in an effective way to meet the needs of children.Overall, the report said, children and young people were well cared for. Children told the two HIQA inspectors that they felt that staff were “kind, interested in them and their future lives”, adding that the overall attendance in school had significantly improved.Fíona Ní Chinnéide of the Irish Penal Reform Trust said that the report was “broadly positive” and “shows improvement”.last_img read more

Le pigment roux à lorigine de la détérioration des yeux

first_imgLe pigment roux à l’origine de la détérioration des yeux ?Des scientifiques cherchant les causes de cataracte chez des oiseaux ont décelé le rôle d’un pigment spécifique dans le processus.C’est à une drôle de conclusion que l’équipe du Dr Ismael Galvan, de l’Université Paris XI, est arrivée en cherchant à déterminer la cause de la cataracte chez les oiseaux. En procédant à une analyse sur de nombreuses espèces, il s’est retrouvé face à un fait assez édifiant : ce sont les oiseaux qui présentent des plumes oranges, rouges ou marrons qui sont le plus touchés par des problèmes de vision, relaye la BBC.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?En s’intéressant plus spécifiquement à ces espèces, il a surtout réussi à isoler un caratère commun à toutes, la présence d’un pigment, la phéomelanine. Cette dernière est la même que celle responsable de la coloration rousse des cheveux et des tâches de rousseur chez l’être humain. Mais pourquoi donc ce “pigment roux” est-il responsable de ces problèmes ?Ismael Galvan explique que “la production de phéomelanine consume une part d’un antioxydant qui joue un rôle dans la protection des yeux de la cataracte”. Un chercheur qui pense que ses travaux pourraient bien servir à comprendre le développement du phénomène chez l’humain, et pourquoi pas trouver le moyen de le contrecarrer.Le 26 avril 2012 à 09:06 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

That means I saw tons of invites sadly roll through my inbox that I knew I couldn’t get to because I wouldn’t have time.

In the Few Minutes You Werent Watching the Connected Future Arrived

first_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. I’m a futurist and IoT obsessed. The implications for a connected world are limitless. Our world is already so awesome, and is only getting better with our crazy advances in technology. In our pockets alone, we hold the computing power of what the most advanced countries held at their highest governmental levels just 20 short years ago. We have driverless cars cruising the streets, voice command everything, sensors that control anything, and just recently the Back to the Future II hover board was finally released!I’ve been waiting for it since I saw the movie as a kid.For those of us reading between the Google (Alphabet) lines, some subtle but huge moves are taking place: first off, they just released their new Internet of Things (IoT) operating system called Brillo, they’ve logged thousands of automated vehicle driving hours, stealthily rolling out expansion plans for their lightning fast Internet network called Google Fiber, and enhancing Google Glass to make it more sleeker and fashionable.Related: Google Changed Glass’s Name to a Migraine SymptomTo recap: we have an operating system that will allow connecting to anything and everything, automated vehicles that drive themselves, lightning fast Internet networks and wearable glasses that give you instant Internet connection with voice command. Alphabet is positioning itself to roll out some serious connectivity.In addition to all the above, check out these other IoT companies making some cool moves:1. Notion.Notion is a tiny sensor the size of an Oreo cookie, with eight sensors to monitor and control your home.Notion can detect hundreds of different household events. For example, if your water heater leaks, if your garage door is left open, if a liquor or gun cabinet is opened, or if the lights are left on in the living room. This tiny, smart, multi-function sensor can easily be placed anywhere. Notion can be moved to new locations at any time, and is capable of detecting acceleration, water leaks, temperature, sound, natural frequency and much more.This device sends alerts directly to a phone, tablet or computer via email, text, or push notification. Alerts can also be sent directly to family members, friends, or neighbors who the user trusts to ensure critical events are not left unattended to. Notion gets smarter over time as it starts to recognize how you live your life. The system is smart enough to know who has entered a home and knows when to send and not send alerts.2. Cleu.Cleu is the new smart alarm clock. It automates your smart home devices the moment you wake up and connects with everything. Cleu connects with Nest, and allows you to wake up comfortably by setting your thermostat to your preferred temperature the moment your alarm goes off. Cleu connects with Hue, which allows you to preset lighting ambiance to different alarms you’ve set at different times of the day. Cleu even connects directly with your schedule, so that your first appointments for the day can be pulled directly from your calendar and displayed on the home screen. Pretty nifty.Related: Out of the Loop on the Internet of Things? Here’s a Brief Guide.3. Scanalytics.Scanalytics is part of Microsoft’s new Internet of Things accelerator. The company’s flagship product is an intelligent floor mat called the SoleSensor, which measures foot traffic. As described on the website, it works like a touch screen for the floor and the company claims that it can measure 100percent of foot traffic in an area, down to each individual step.The opportunity with SoleSensor for business is huge, especially in retail, because SoleSensor can gauge what part of the store customers are frequenting and even connect with other devices to prompt actions based on customer behavior.Here is an example displayed on the website: “When someone is standing in front of this product for longer than one minute, display competitive pricing information and send a text to a nearby sales associate.”4. Chui.Chui is a smart doorbell. More importantly, however, is what the company is doing with its software. Chui uses facial recognition technology to turn your face, and the faces of those you allow, to become the keys that unlock a door. Additionally, Chui also allows two-way video calls through the device so users can chat with their visitors from their phone. Users can also control the door systems via their smartphones, and allow visitors to enter remotely.5. Neura.Neura is another cool example of total connectivity. Neura connects your individual devices, frequently-visited places and people close to you. Neura users assign the important connections between the different inputs and tracks your daily routines and interactions.With your permission, Neura will then improve your daily life through automation. The more people, places, devices and feedback you provide, the smarter Neura gets. As noted on the website, It can notify your friends and family of certain daily events it detects. For example, you can notify your best friend every time you arrive at a meeting place, or get an automatic notification every time your kids get home from school. So, the more you use it, the better it understands your daily routines and interactions to recommend ways to improve your daily life through its automation.It’s fun and exciting to see the future being built right before our eyes. This is an amazing time to be an entrepreneur. Figure out what products you want to use in your life, and go build them.Related: Roomba Once Was Blind, But Now It Sees 5 min read September 18, 2015 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.

Almost 2500 applications filed for golden visas

first_imgFrom May 2013 until August of this year, 2,390 applications were filed by law firms and accounting firms on behalf of foreign nationals seeking Cypriot naturalisation via the citizenship-by-investment scheme, official documents show.The list has been leaked to the media after it was provided to parliament by the interior ministry via a letter dated November 21.The company with the largest share of applications, 184, was PricewaterhouseCoopers (Cyprus Ltd).In second place was the law firm of Andreas Demetriades & Co LLC, with 137 applications.Third was the law firm of Michael Kyprianou and Co LLC with 123 applications, followed by Areti Charidemou & Associates LLC with 119, and KPMG with 114.Lower down the rung was President Nicos Anastasiades’ law firm, Nicos Chr. Anastasiades & Partners LLC, which filed 41 applications.Anastasiades maintains that since assuming office he has had nothing to do with the law firm and its business – although the main partners in the company are his daughters.The Elias Neocleous & Co LLC law firm (formerly Andreas Neocleous & Co LLC) filed 54 applications, while Tassos Papadopoulos & Associates LLC filed 17.Altogether, some 200 law firms are listed, accounting for 1,131 applications or about half of the total applications.The list features only the applications filed, not the citizenships granted. In the letter providing the data, Interior Minister Constandinos Petrides promises to provide “additional information” to parliament in the near future.The interior ministry has, however, released generic information on the number of citizenships granted to foreign nationals via the scheme.It shows that from 2014 to 2017, a total of 2,996 citizenships were granted to foreign investors and family members.The year 2017 was the busiest. In total, citizenship was granted to 503 investors, and another 510 Cypriot passports to family members; by comparison in 2016, 443 citizenships to investors and 461 passports to family members; in 2015, 337 citizenships and 342 passports; and in 2014, 214 citizenships and 186 passports.According to the ministry, the applicants hail mainly from Asia, eastern Europe, European countries and Arab countries.In an apparent damage-control exercise – following criticism from certain quarters abroad about Cyprus’ so-called ‘golden passports’ – the government last week announced that it will hire consultants to carry out tighter due diligence checks on the applications scheme.2017 was also the year with the highest number of applications, at 704. For this year (up until August), there were 521 applications.The cabinet recently decided to place a cap on citizenships granted, limiting them to 700 per year.In October, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) put Cyprus on its ‘blacklist’ of countries whose ‘golden passport’ schemes are regarded as posing a threat to international efforts to combat tax evasion.In 2016, Cyprus also came under fire from a group of MEPs, arguing that the island’s citizenship-by-investment programme undermined the Schengen border-control system.Cypriot officials have vigorously defended the naturalisation scheme, saying its investment requirements are far higher than in other places.The investment amount is €2m if the investment is made solely in residential real estate, at least a quarter of which must be spent on a residence for life.If not, the threshold is €2.5m, at least €500,000 of which must be spent on a permanent residence. In both cases, the requirement of a permanent residence ensures the investor remains closely engaged with Cyprus even if not actually obliged to live on the island.By comparison, under Malta’s scheme, €350,000 must be spent on a residence, and it need only be held for five years.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoSecurity SaversWindows Users Advised To Do This TodaySecurity SaversUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
