10 January 2012The United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) reported today that it will continue to distribute food aid to some 1.5 million people each month through its school meals scheme, mother and children nutrition and food-for-work programmes in Haiti, but insufficient funding remains a concern. Food prices in the country have risen by 50 per cent since 2010, which means that one out of every two Haitians are experiencing some kind of food shortages, WFP’s spokesperson, Gaëlle Sévenier, told reporters in Geneva.The agency’s capacity to respond has been affected by a budget deficit of $18 million for the next six months, she said.According to Elisabeth Byrs, spokesperson for the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the initial appeal for Haiti in the immediate aftermath of the massive earthquake two years ago that sought $1.5 billion was 75 per cent funded.Last year, humanitarian agencies received only 54 per cent of the requested $382 million, Ms. Byrs said, urging donors not to forget that the country still faces great humanitarian challenges as one of the world’s poorest country’s even before the quake.This year, some $231 million is required to continue efforts against the cholera outbreak and to fund other relief programmes, she added.
Former President Mohamed Nasheed has already started his campaign for the MDP primaries, which will be held at the end of May. The Jumhooree Party has announced their candidate for Presidential Election will be Party Leader Qasim Ibrahim. (Colombo Gazette) The Joint Opposition in the Maldives condemned the Maldives Elections Commission in the strongest possible terms, after the Elections Commission announced that all political leaders, apart from President Yameen, are banned from contesting the presidential elections, due to be held later this year.The Elections Commission made the announcement yesterday. The Joint Opposition said that the Elections Commission had warned political parties, saying that would prevent party primaries from taking place if banned opposition leaders contested. The Joint Opposition accused the Elections Commission of being “hopelessly politicised” and “little more than a mouthpiece for President Yameen.”
Normally, the hosts of a popular talk-radio show talk about sports on a quiet set with only a few production assistants in the room. On Thursday, ESPN’s “Mike and Mike” talked sports in front of about 800 spectators in the Archie Griffin ballroom at the Ohio Union. In an Ohio Union Activities Board event, Mike Greenberg and Mike Golic appeared at an interactive sports discussion covering everything from the Cleveland sports scene to whether there should be a playoff system in college football. “It was great. I love doing these,” Greenberg said. “There are a lot of different groups we might speak in front of, and my favorite to do is college.” The prominent duo shared the stage with hosts Scott Torgerson, known as “The Torg” from his local sports-talk radio show on 97.1 FM, and former Buckeye quarterback Craig Krenzel. “We are like an old married couple,” Greenberg told the crowd. “We bicker and are rarely intimate.” The two ESPN personalities shared the experiences that lead them to own a prominent morning radio show and gave insight to what it’s like to be paired with someone for 12 years. Greenberg said he started out working during late nights at a local news radio station in Chicago, while Golic had a nine-year career in the NFL as a defensive lineman after starring at Notre Dame. “When I played, I was the guy who all the beat writers would go to for quotes,” Golic said. President E. Gordon Gee attended and provided one of the more awkward moments of the night for the rambunctious radio personalities. In November, Gee said Ohio State’s football team doesn’t play the “little sisters of the poor” in regards to TCU’s football team. Greenberg then criticized Gee’s comment on-air during their radio show. Once Torgerson made Greenberg aware of Gee’s presence in the crowd, Greenberg apologized and mentioned how admirably Gee handled of the situation. Following the show, Torgeson said he was amazed at the level of chemistry the two Mikes share. “It’s fun because they work so well together,” Torgerson said. “When they got on stage it’s like they’ve been doing this for 30 years and have a routine, but I can tell you they don’t have a routine. That’s what’s so great about tonight. They were funny, informative and worked very well with each other.” Following the free-flowing sports discussion on numerous sports topics, Greenberg and Golic took questions from the crowd that focused mainly on the Ohio sports scene. One attendee had asked if any of the Cleveland sports franchises would win a championship during his lifetime. Greenberg and Golic answered with a resounding “No.” “With Ohio State being a school where athletics are so popular, it made perfect sense for the Ohio Union Activities Board to bring Mike and Mike to campus,” said Daniel Walls, OUAB lectures chairman and a third-year in microbiology. OUAB would not disclose the cost of bringing the duo to OSU. “It had been some time since OUAB had brought a sports-related lecture to campus, and after surveying students on various potential speakers; Mike and Mike consistently performed well,” Walls said.
“It is testament to the commitment and professionalism of our team and hugely exciting.”At RZSS we believe we have a duty to help protect this magnificent species, with the reduction in sea ice, the polar bear’s primary seal hunting platform, predicted to significantly reduce numbers over the next 40 years.”Our polar bears are part of the European Endangered Species Programme and we hope Victoria’s offspring will survive to reinforce the captive population, which may be needed in the future to augment and help restore a markedly reduced and fragmented wild population.”The last polar bear cubs born in the UK were twins at Flamingo Land in Yorkshire in December 1992.Victoria, born in Germany in 1996, previously gave birth at Aalborg Zoo in Denmark in 2008.She arrived at RZSS Highland Wildlife Park in March 2015. The first polar bear cub born in the UK for 25 years is being monitored at a Scottish wildlife park.The Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) said its resident female polar bear Victoria has given birth at the Highland Wildlife Park.The charity described the birth as an “outstanding achievement” but stressed that the first three months can be perilous for polar bear cubs, both in the wild and in captivity.Staff at RZSS Highland Wildlife Park, at Kincraig near Kingussie, confirmed the birth after hearing “high-pitched sounds” from Victoria’s maternity den.It is the first time a polar bear cub has been born in the UK for a quarter of a century, the organisation said.However, the RZSS said photographs and videos of the new cub were not available as filming is not possible near the polar bear enclosure for animal welfare reasonsUna Richardson, the park’s head keeper responsible for carnivores, said: “We first heard promising noises in the week before Christmas and these have now continued into the new year. “While we are absolutely thrilled, we are not celebrating prematurely as polar bear cubs have a high mortality rate in the first weeks of life due to their undeveloped immune system and the mother’s exaggerated need for privacy, with any disturbance risking the cub being killed or abandoned.”We will continue to monitor Victoria and very much hope for the best possible news when she emerges around March.”Until then, Victoria’s enclosure will be closed to the public and keeper activity will be at a minimum to give her offspring every chance of survival.”New-born polar bear cubs are blind, around 12in (30cm) long and weigh little more than a guinea pig, the charity said.They only open their eyes when they are a month old and are entirely dependent on their mother, feeding on fat-rich milk to grow quickly, weighing between 22lb (10kg) and 26.5lb (12kg) by the time they leave their den.The polar bear breeding season began in March last year, during which Victoria mated with Arktos, one of the park’s two males.Arktos and Walker, the other male bear, remain on view to visitors to the attraction.Barbara Smith, RZSS chief executive, said: “The birth of the first polar bear cub in the UK for a quarter of a century is an outstanding achievement which will arouse interest around the world. “Because we don’t have sight inside her cubbing box we can’t be sure if Victoria has had more than one cub but we can confirm the birth.

Femme : le cancer de l’instestin favorisé par le manque d’exerciceDeux études publiées ce mercredi expliquent que si le cancer de l’intestin chez les femmes peut être favorisé par le manque d’exercices physiques, le cancer du sein pourrait, lui, être favorisé à la consommation de cigarettes.Le cancer du sein chez les femmes ménopausées pourrait être favorisé par la consommation actuelle ou une consommation passée de cigarettes. Ainsi, les femmes qui fument ou qui ont fumé plus jeunes auraient 16% de risques supplémentaires de contracter un jour le cancer du sein, explique une étude publiée par le British Medical Journal. Cette augmentation des risques serait également valable chez les femmes victimes du tabagisme passif, et cela après étude de 80.000 femmes âgées de 50 à 79 ans sur une période de 10 ans, rapporte l’agence Belga.Une autre étude s’intéressant aux femmes et aux cancers dont elles sont victimes montre que les personnes qui pratiquent régulièrement une activité physique ou qui sont très actives, auraient trois fois moins de risques de contracter des polypes dans l’intestin, facteur d’apparition du cancer. Ainsi, Kathleen Wolin, travaillant à l’école de médecine à St Louis aux Etats-Unis explique : “Cela fait longtemps que nous savons qu’un style de vie actif peut protéger contre le cancer de l’intestin, mais cette étude est la première (…) à montrer qu’une réduction du nombre des polypes intestinaux est l’explication la plus plausible”.Le 5 mars 2011 à 09:23 • Emmanuel Perrin

Vijayawada: High Court Chief Justice S Praveen Kumar stressed on the need to eradicate Devadasi system from the society. Addressing a seminar on the eradication of Devadasi and Jogini System here on Tuesday, he said the Devadasi system was a social evil and everyone should work for eradicating it from the society. He called upon the people to work to provide equal social justice to those who are living as Devadasis and Joginis. He pointed out that evil system had been prevailing in seven districts in the State. No case was reported so far though enactments were introduced in 1988 and 2015 to eradicate the system, he said. Also Read – 10 injured as school bus falls off bridge in Nellore district Advertise With Us He also asked the governments to do justice to Devadasis and Joginis by providing all kind of support to them towards living with equal justice. The governments should provide financial help to them by designing special plans, he suggested. Justice KC Bhanu said that nearly 80,000 Devadasis were living in the State out of which 80 per cent belonged to the scheduled castes and remaining to the scheduled tribes. He said that they were opting for the Devadasis system due to their poverty. He asked the government to provide proper training to the revenue department to implement Acts and eradicate the system. Social Welfare Department Principal Secretary M Ravichandra, Women and Child Welfare Department Principal Secretary K Damayanti, Krishna District Collector Md Imtiaz, SC Corporation Director G Chandrudu and several other officials were present.
Prime Minister Narendra Modi headed cabinet committee on economic affairs (CCEA) granted permission to Axis Bank to raise its foreign shareholding limit to 74 percent from the existing 62 percent.A move, reported Press Trust of India, had the potential to bring in foreign inflows of about Rs. 12,973 crore.As the capital inflow of Axis Bank was more than Rs. 5,000 crore, India’s government monitored approval body Foreign Investment Promotion Board (FIPB) had reserved its decision on allowing such huge investments. The inter-ministerial board headed by economic affairs secretary Shaktikanta Das had recommended the proposal to CCEA.Currently, India’s private banks are allowed to raise foreign capital up to a limit of 74 percent.
