Ebola: Sierra Leone Boy’s Visit to Stockport School Cancelled After ‘Misguided Hysteria’

first_imgA head teacher has blamed “misguided hysteria” about Ebola for the cancellation of a school visit by a nine-year-old boy from Sierra Leone.Kofi Mason-Sesay had been due to attend classes this month at St Simon’s Catholic Primary School in Stockport.The boy, who has studied there during previous visits to England with his mother, does not have the disease and the head teacher said, she had obtained public health reassurances. But some parents expressed their fears.In a letter to parents, St. Simon’s head teacher, Elizabeth Inman wrote: “It is with great sadness that we decided to cancel the visit; the misguided hysteria emerging is extremely disappointing, distracting us from our core purpose of educating your children and [it] is not an environment that I would wish a visitor to experience.”In a later statement she added: “It is unfortunate that some misplaced anxiety and misinformation about Ebola, amongst a small group of parents, has been circulated amongst the wider parent body.”The school has sought, and received, assurances from the relevant health agencies that the visit would pose no risk to health.”Despite these assurances, this has not alleviated the concerns of the group, leading to the cancellation.”The boy’s mother Miriam Mason-Sesay, who works for the UK charity EducAid in Sierra Leone, told BBC Radio 5 live she had not been near any Ebola patients. The head teacher has proposed that parents donate to EducAid in recognition of Ms. Mason-Sesay’s work.Public Health England said on last Tuesday there were no to introduce Ebola screening for people visiting the UK.Dr Brian McCloskey, director of global health, said: “If an Ebola case is repatriated to, or detected in, the UK they would receive appropriate treatment in an isolation unit, with all appropriate protocols promptly activated.”                                      Ebola FactsSource: NHS and WHOPeople can catch Ebola if they are in direct contact with the bodily fluids of an infected person or animal.Early symptoms include fever, muscle pain, headache and sore throat.

“It’s time to embrace inclusive hiring,” says social development minister

first_imgSeptember is BC Disability Employment month, and was recently embraced by City Council in an approved proclamation at Monday’s meeting.Today, Minister of Social Development and Social Innovation Michelle Stilwell spoke at a luncheon, urging more employers to consider hiring people with disabilities.She also visited work places that already practice inclusive hiring, including Safeway, Homesteader Health Food Store, and Pacific Western Transit.- Advertisement -Local wheelchair advocate Lori Slater was the MC of the event, and introduced Stilwell to the crowd. Stilwell also met with members the Spinal Cord Society today, with whom Slater is a Peer Program Coordinator.Stilwell is also the MLA for the Parksville-Qualicum riding, and a former paralympic athlete – having competed in the London 2012 Paralympic games.By 2024, Stilwell wants BC to lead the country in the number of people with disabilities it has employed.Advertisement To help reach this vision, the BC government is a partner with the Neil Squire Society, with programs such as technology@work, which provides people with disabilities with the technology they need to work.“I certainly know that, for many people with disabilities, assistant technology is really what makes the greatest impact in their day to day life,” she said. “I’m speaking the truth because I’m one of those individuals with a disability.”Government is providing $9 million over the next three years to the Neil Squire Society to help fund more assisted technology for employees who need them.last_img read more

Similarly Robert Huth was clearly pleased with his move from Stoke to Leicester, also on loan. 4center_img 4 4last_img

City’s flower blooms again

first_img Bairnsfather didn’t expect anyone to be shopping for jewelry so soon after the hurricane – the city was mostly empty and covered in debris. But because more than 90 percent of Faget’s business is local, the only chance of survival was to reopen. As a show of support, Bairnsfather’s mother came to buy a ring on reopening day – and found a line, each customer hungry for the fleur-de-lis. By the time the second of the three stores opened Oct. 28, the line at that store in a suburban mall was so long it wound around the shop and customers were asked to take a number. The third shop has yet to reopen, but even with just two in circulation, Mignon Faget sold over 20,000 fleur-de-lis pieces in 2005, five times the number she sold the year before in her New Orleans shops and on the company’s Web site. Of late, each piece has had its own renaissance. In the four months since reopening, the company has sold 4,903 fleur-de-lis pendants, ranging in price from $35 to $145, compared with 1,280 in the same period a year ago. Faget sold 151 fleur-de-lis brooches, retailing for $275, compared with 46 in the same four-month window in 2004. And 1,392 dangling flower earrings, versus 510 a year ago. They sell for between $95 and $300. Faget has been able to hire back all but a handful of employees, one fleur-de-lis at a time. And the company donated 10 percent of all fleur-de-lis product sales through the end of 2005 to the city’s reconstruction effort. “People seem to want to hug New Orleans right now, and this is one way they can do it. It’s almost like a patriotism toward the city,” said Arthur Hardy, 59, an expert on the city’s culture. Customers returned to Mignon Faget stores with tales laced with loss, hoping the silver or gold flower would fill a void. A policeman bought a fleur-de-lis necklace for his wife to make up for a birthday missed during the post-Katrina maelstrom. A woman wanted to replace pieces she’d been collecting since childhood, lost when her home in Chalmette was drowned by flood water and crude oil. The demand for fleur-de-lis jewelry is spilling over to other jewelers in the city, many of whom say they can’t keep up with demand. “It’s been an explosion. We’ve tripled our sales of the fleur-de-lis,” said Brandy Whisnant, who with her husband owns Wellington & Co. in the French Quarter, which sells its own fleur-de-lis bracelet, pendant and cuff-link designs. Symmetry, a high-end jeweler that’s made fleur-de-lis cuff links for Saints players in the past, had its best Christmas ever, all due to the fleur-de-lis, said owner Richard Mathis. For the 72-year-old Faget, the flower, which she’s used as a motif since the 1970s, has taken on new significance. “We read on the Internet that the fleur-de-lis was born from the tears of Eve when she was driven from the Garden of Eden,” she said. “We decided this city is our own personal Garden of Eden.” 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORESanta Anita opens winter meet Saturday with loaded card “People want to wear it as a badge of courage,” said Faget, whose family settled in the city in the 1700s. “It has never been more meaningful to us.” Faget (pronounced fah-ZHAY) fled the city one day before the storm, barely taking time to board up her three stores and lock the jewelry in a vault at the company’s business offices, a former bank building. Away from New Orleans, she considered filing for bankruptcy. She needn’t have worried. Though looters made off with cheaper pieces left in the downtown store, they never broke into the vault, where Faget’s treasures survived the storm unscathed. Using a laptop bought at a store along her evacuation route, the company’s vice president, Virginia Saussy Bairnsfather, 39, began fashioning an amateur advertisement for the local newspaper, announcing the reopening of the flagship store on fashionable Magazine Street on Oct. 12. NEW ORLEANS – Every New Orleans lady, or so it’s said, owns at least one piece of Mignon Faget jewelry – adornment as central to a lady’s wardrobe in this city as a piece from Tiffany & Co. in New York. But after Hurricane Katrina made landfall Aug. 29, destroying huge swathes of the city and dispersing her clientele, Faget was forced to lay off 72 of her 80 employees. She assumed her business would fold. Instead, she’s thrived, almost entirely because her signature motif on necklaces, brooches, earrings and bracelets is the fleur-de-lis – a stylized lily with three petals drawn together at its base. The symbol of New Orleans adorns everything from the mayor’s business card to city trash cans, to the football uniforms of the New Orleans Saints. As New Orleans struggles to rebuild, the fleur-de-lis, originally bestowed on the city by its French settlers, has become a unifying symbol – and the anchor of the Faget business. last_img read more
