“These pledges prove that the people devastated by this conflict are not forgotten,” UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said during the Second International Humanitarian Pledging Conference on Syria. “It is also sending a strong signal to the neighbouring countries – that we appreciate their generosity, and that they will not be left to shoulder the burden alone.”The conflict in Syria, which began in March 2011, has produced “unprecedented” demands for humanitarian and development agencies, Mr. Ban told the gathering earlier, noting that $6.5 billion is needed this year.An estimated 9.3 million people in Syria, many of them stranded in hard-to-reach and besieged areas, urgently need help, according to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). Nearly half of them are children, who do not have adequate access to health care or education. More than 3 million people have fled Syria and are taking refuge in Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt, causing great hardship and raising tensions throughout the region.In January 2013, the First Pledging Conference for Syria saw 43 Member States pledge $1.5 billion towards humanitarian efforts. Those funds were used to provide life-saving assistance for millions of people in Syria and surrounding countries, including emergency food rations, mobile medical care and vaccinations, clean water and sanitation, and basic shelter.“Humanitarian aid is the difference between life and death, hope and despair. It has already assisted millions of people affected by this crisis,” said Mr. Ban. “I count on you to show the Syrian people that the world is here to help.”Hosted by the Emir of Kuwait, Sheikh Sabah Al-Ahmed Al-Jaber Al-Sabah, and chaired by the UN Secretary-General, the conference offers the international community to continue supporting the humanitarian response to help the millions affected by the Syria crisis. It comes ahead of next week’s talks in Switzerland aimed at finding a political solution to the civil war that has already claimed well over 100,000 lives amid fighting between the Government and various groups seeking the ouster of President Bashar al-Assad.“This is the biggest humanitarian crisis we face today,” UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs Valerie Amos told the conference. “We all hope that the political talks due to begin next week will deliver a positive result. In the meantime, every child, every woman, every man affected by this crisis deserves our continued support.Ms. Amos, who recently carried out her seventh visit to Syria in nearly two years, said that “the very fabric of the society has unravelled, and sectarianism has taken hold.” There are persistent reports of people running out of food in besieged communities, public health is in crisis and nearly one-fifth of Syria’s schools are either damaged or being used as shelters.Despite the constraints, humanitarian operations are making a difference to millions of people’s lives every day, she noted, adding that agencies were able to increase response activities across the country throughout the past year.“We know that we must do all we can to continue to scale up our activities this year if we are to keep pace with the growing needs,” stated Ms. Amos.António Guterres, UN High Commissioner for Refugees, noted in his remarks that within a few years, Syria has gone from being the world’s second largest refugee-hosting country to becoming its fastest refugee-producing country. “It breaks my heart to see the people of Syria, who for decades generously welcomed refugees from other countries in the region, now forced into exile themselves,” said Mr. Guterres. The agency which he heads (UNHCR) has registered over 2.3 million Syrians as refugees in the region, and governments estimate the total number of those who fled at over 3 million, including many who have not asked for assistance. Countries in the region – Lebanon, Jordan, Turkey, Iraq and Egypt – have received an unrelenting stream of fleeing Syrians and have provided them protection, at enormous cost to themselves, Mr. Guterres said. “Few refugee influxes have ever generated this profound an impact on their host countries, with such dramatic demographic, economic and social consequences. The pressure is felt heavily in all areas of daily life, as budget deficits are increasing, growth suffers and jobs, salaries and price levels are affected across the region, leaving local families struggling to make ends meet.”He stressed that the generosity of Syria’s neighbours needs to be matched by massive international support, and that countries in the region need not only strong financial assistance, but also need others to help carry the burden of actually taking in and protecting refugees. “My appeal to all countries – including those beyond the region – is therefore to keep their borders open for those who are forced to flee and seek protection elsewhere,” he stated, adding that there is something “fundamentally wrong” in a world where asylum-seekers drown at sea or are pushed back from land borders.While in Kuwait, Mr. Ban met separately with several leaders, including Prime Minister Najib Mikati of Lebanon and United States Secretary of State John Kerry, as well as officials from Kuwait, Jordan and the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies. read more

WASHINGTON, United States (AFP) — Migraine sufferers on Thursday got some relief from US regulators who approved the first of a new class of drugs for migraine prevention.The United States Food and Drug Administration said it endorsed Aimovig for prevention of migraine in adults, through monthly self-injections.Aimovig is the first in a new class of drugs that work by blocking the activity of calcitonin gene-related peptide, a molecule involved in migraine attacks, the FDA said in a statement.“Aimovig provides patients with a novel option for reducing the number of days with migraine,” said Eric Bastings, a deputy director in the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research.“We need new treatments for this painful and often debilitating condition.”Migraine is three times more common in women than in men and affects more than 10 per cent of people worldwide.The FDA issued its approval to California-based Amgen Inc, which has been collaborating with Swiss pharmaceutical firm Novartis to develop and commercialise treatments for migraine and Alzheimer’s.Aimovig is expected to be available to patients within one week and is listed at a price of US$6,900 annually, Amgen said in a statement.

The most successful team in the handball history beat Polish champions Vive Tauron Kielce 33:28 (16:14) in the first semi-final of the major club’s event in front of 20.000 fans in Lanxess Arena. Xavi Pascual boys broke the resistance of the Poles in the last 10 minutes with amazing performance of their goalkeeper Danijel Šarić, who saved 10 balls in the last 20 minutes of the clash. Nikola Karabatic scored 8 goals, Kiril Lazarov overtook the goalscorer’s crown from Mikkel Hansen (106 – 104) with 7, while Karol Bielecki netted six for the „yellow“ squad who will fight for the third place on Sunday (15.15).Barca showed winning ambitions in the first 15 minutes of the match, after which Talant Dujshebaev was forced to call time-out (8:4). Barca’s counter attack was outstanding and made a lot of troubles to the Kielce’s planned attack-defense substitutions.The leader was Nikola Karabatić who netted his third for 10:6 in 20th minute.However, as Dujshebaev promised, his player fought well and didn’t have problem with selfconfidence against the favorite. The Spanish coach re-organized his attack, Julen Aguinagalde was the biggest threat for Barca’s goal, but also outstanding shooter Karol Bielecki who ended 3:0 series of his team for 10:9 after 23 minutes of the clash.Barcelona didn’t let the rivals to catch them until half-time break. Main role in the last few minutes of the first half had Jesper Noddesbo with two goals for 16:14.„Run and gun“ game continued after the break. Barca opened the second half-time with 3:0 for +5 (19:14), but Kielce’s had quick answer, few counter-attacks which put team from „Blaugrana“ under pressure – 19:18.Xavi Pascual called time-out, but that didn’t prevent the first tie – 20:20 in 38th minute after fast-break by Manuel Štrlek.The Polish champions were in the game in the next ten minutes, when the individual quality of Danijel Šarić became dominant. The Qatari NT goalie replaced Vargas in 40th minute, and saved 10 shots until the final buzzer.Kielce had only chance to take advantage in 45th minute, but Šarić caught two balls from Cupic and Jurecki.Barca’s goalie became almost unbeatable in the last ten minutes providing his team many chance to make final touch.

I’m not sure where that image originated.This image was posted to Reddit by user RevolutionaryCommie: MILF of the Day (link NSFW) is a Facebook page posting what it calls “photos/videos of Sexy Mums across the World!” It has 87,294 likes at the time of writing – an extra 4,000 since the screencap was taken.McGrath told DailyEdge.ie that he was first alerted to the incident on Saturday.That screen capture was brought to my attention by friends of mine who would have sent me emails and texts. So I deactivated my Facebook account, not knowing what had happened or how I came to be associated with the page.The Cork South Central TD’s page remains down this afternoon, with McGrath saying:I’m not going to reactivate it until I’m sure that the account is fully secure.He added that he had not yet been able to find out where the hack originated, but was hoping to learn more. “I could do without it to be honest,” McGrath said. “It’s certainly a case of getting burned online.”Independent Senator Fidelma Healy Eames hit headlines internationally earlier this year when she raised the practice of ‘fraping’ – playing pranks on other users’ Facebook pages – in an Oireachtas committee.Has Ireland accidentally given ‘fraping’ to the world?>Irish MEP’s Twitter account tells Anglo to “f**k off”, he says he was hacked>last_img read more

first_imgClimat : le réchauffement global menace certains sites archéologiquesSelon une équipe d’universitaires britanniques, qui a évalué trois sites archéologiques situés dans des régions froides du globe, les effets du réchauffement climatique pourraient dégrader de nombreux vestiges historiques, dont des restes humains.Des membres de la Business School de l’Université d’Edimbourg  (Ecosse) se sont penchés sur le devenir de trois sites de l’hémisphère boréal, recelant des trésors archéologiques jusqu’à présent préservés dans la glace ou le permafrost, et ont constaté les dégâts potentiels ou avérés dus au dégel consécutif au réchauffement climatique mondial.À lire aussiQui est Greta Thunberg, proposée pour un prix Nobel à seulement 16 ans ?En Alaska, l’érosion des côtes provoquée par le retrait de la banquise guette les vestiges d’un ancien village inuit, notamment un cimetière datant du IVe siècle. La fonte des glaciers dans les Montagnes Rocheuses menace des restes humains de paléo-populations d’Amérique, ainsi que des artéfacts tels qu’outils et armes de pierre ou éléments vestimentaires. Dans l’Altaï, enfin, en Asie centrale, la hausse des températures pourrait impacter les seules tombes gelées du monde, celles d’anciens cavaliers nomades.”Beaucoup de ces sites ne sont pas encore documentés et ne commencent à être étudiés que lorsqu’ils font saillie hors de la glace, alors même qu’ils commencent à se dégrader”, explique Katie Molyneaux, auteur principal de l’étude. “Des efforts à long terme sont nécessaires pour localiser les vestiges archéologiques à risque, et chercher la meilleure façon de prendre soin d’eux. Nous devons également considérer les implications culturelles et politiques liées à la préservation de ces reliques”, conclut le Dr Dave Reay, qui a supervisé l’étude. Le 19 mars 2011 à 20:01 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgNow, that seems like wishful thinking. Nothing’s gone particularly wrong for Mackey, but he never trained his dogs for a race where everyone seems to be pushing at a record-setting tempo.“It’s unbelievable the pace that’s being set, and is continuing to be set right across. I’ve said for the last few years, this thing’s turning into a long-distance sprint race,” said Mackey.In spite of what feels like an aggressive schedule, Mackey feels like he’s continually getting passed, and so is cutting his rests a little shorter.“I mean, I don’t know what else to do. Come to 50th? With that being said, man, I gotta get to boogying,” said Mackey.At this point he puts his full attention toward the sled.Another musher finding the field more competitive than expected is rookie Cody Strathe, who arrived 29th into Galena.“I mean, to be in the top 30 would be a miracle this year with the amount of teams. So if I can stick in the top 30 that would be awesome,” said Strathe.Strathe was hoping to be rookie of the year, but there’s a strong Norwegian, Gier Hjelvik, staying stubbornly ahead of him. Cody Strathe preparing to leave Galena checkpoint after his 8 hour rest was up. (Photo by Zachariah Hughes/KSKA/0“I’ve never seen that person, but they’re ahead of me, they have been the whole time,” said Strathe.For others, the biggest challenge in this middle chunk of the trail is the physical toll it starts taking. That’s especially true for Karin Hendrickson, who was hit by a car in 2014 during fall training, and is still recovering.“I have to stay on top of the pain medication, which is hard because it’s starting to make me throw up, so I’m dealing with that a little bit. But if I don’t take it then it gets to the point where I’m really not that functional. So I’m just sort of balancing a few different things for me, physically,” said Hendrickson. Karin Hendrickson coming off the Yukon into Galena. (Photo by Zachariah Hughes/KSKA)Hendrickson is running a team with just two dogs that have ever been to Nome before, and her goal is just getting the others trained up. She’s treating this as a year to rebuild and recuperate, even if that means moving over a thousand cold and icy miles with very little rest.That’s the case for DeeDee Jonrowe, as well. She’s not physically recuperating, but using the focus and solitude of the trail to recover from a year in which her mother passed just a month after her home burned to the ground during the Sockeye fire.“I’ve had a bad year, I lost everything I own, and chose these dogs over everything I own. And faced with that, this is what I took: my dogs,” said Jonrowe.Jonrowe is having trouble fixing a runner, and gets a little help from Tore Albrigtsen, who’s camping next to her.She is exhausted and hungry, but signs autographs and chats amicably in spite of it. She didn’t train to compete for a top spot this year, just be alone with her dogs to clear her head.“I’ve struggled plenty, I know how to struggle,” said Jonrowe. Reporter: “So this is easy then?” “Compared to what I’ve been through the last few years, this is a piece of cake,” said Jonrowe.And with that, Jonrowe heads off to try and dry her large pink coat in a boiler room. DeeDee Jonrowe is racing the 2016 Iditarod after she lost her home in a wildlife. (Photo by Zachariah Hughes/KSKA)It’s been a week of racing for mushers in the Iditarod, and those in the middle of the pack are struggling. Though, it’s for a variety of different reasons. As Alaska Public Media’s Zachariah Hughes reports, for some the difficulty is the race itself, but for others it’s the challenges inside the lives they’re away from while out on the trail.Download AudioIn the bright mid-day sun, Jason Mackey is trying to fit someone else’s discarded green runners onto his sled.“And I didn’t send plastic here. I don’t have anything ’til I get to the coast, so I’m rummaging through the garbage pile,” said Mackey.With a cigarette clamped at the side of his mouth, Mackey is frustrated to find himself in the middle of the pack arriving into Galena.“24 hours ago I was thought, ya know what, I really got a shot at the last 15,” said Mackey.last_img read more

first_imgAt least 10 people have been killed in violent protests in the West African nation of Niger over the French satirical weekly Charlie Hebdo’s depiction of the Prophet Muhammad, the country’s president said.President Mahamadou Issoufou said that five deaths were reported after demonstrations in Niamey, the capital, yesterday. Another five people died on Friday in the town of Zinder following prayer services there. The victims were inside churches and bars that were set ablaze, he said. Also Read – Pro-Govt supporters rally as Hong Kong’s divisions deepenThe violence erupted after Charlie Hebdo published its first issue since the January 7 attack on its headquarters by Islamic extremists that left 12 people dead.According to mainstream Islamic tradition, any physical depiction of the Prophet Muhammad even a respectful one is considered blasphemous. Elsewhere in the Muslim world yesterday, Afghanistan’s President Ashraf Ghani condemned Charlie Hebdo, calling the newest cover image of Prophet Muhammad a blasphemous and irresponsible act. “Freedom of expression should be used in a way to boost understanding between the religions,” he said in a statement issued by the presidential palace.

first_imgWindows Store: now with desktop themes by Martin Brinkmann on December 20, 2016 in Windows – Last Update: December 20, 2016 – 5 commentsMicrosoft has begun to move desktop themes for Windows 10 to the Windows Store. The company announced some time ago that it would make available themes in the Store, and the move marks the first step in that direction.Windows Store features apps and game downloads, Edge extensions, and also music, movies & TV content right now. Microsoft wants this to be the one-stop shop for all things Windows. One thing that you may never see in the Store however are legacy Windows programs.Windows 7 and newer versions of the Windows operating system support two types of themes. Full themes that may change any button, icon, font, color and more on the system, and light themes that change wallpapers, some colors, sounds and the screen saver.Windows Store ThemesThe first set of light themes are now available in Windows Store.Alaskan LandscapesAustralian LandscapeBeauty of Britain 2Cats AnytimeDogs in WinterGerman LandscapesSurreal TerritoryThe store pages open just fine when you click on the link, and the get operation to download the theme to the local system works as well. The launch operation however is not functional yet which means that you can’t just go ahead and switch to the theme easily right now.It appears that Microsoft will add the missing functionality somewhere between now and the release of the Creators Update release candidate.The themes are downloaded to c:\program files\windowsapps\[themename]. You find the .theme file under theme in the folder that is created when the Windows Store download completes.Please note that users don’t have access to the windowsapps folder by default. This means that you need to add the user account that you are using to the list of accounts allowed to access the folder (via the Security tab). The theme installs fine then when you double-click on it.All themes add mostly images and nothing more to the operating system. While some users may like this, it is not anything special considering that you can create your own Windows themes as well using custom images.Closing WordsSome users may like the new functionality and Microsoft will surely push more themes to Windows Store prior to the release of the Creators Update for the operating system. You should not expect anything more than wallpaper bundles though with a custom color or two thrown in to the mix though.

first_imgDad slams ‘disgusting’ hospital window What is a Met Office Weather Warning?The Met Office issue weather warnings when there is a risk of weather causing damage, disruption or danger to life. Generally warnings will be issued for heavy rain, wind, ice or snow. They come in three categories. Yellow: The lowest of the three. Yellow means you should plan ahead about potential disruption to travel and other day-to-day activities. These are the most common. Amber: A step up from Yellow, an Amber warning means there is an increased risk of disruption/danger to life and property. Red: These are only issued when ‘extreme weather’ is expected. When one is issued the Met Office advise immediate action is taken to keep yourself and others safe as widespread damage, disruption and risk to life is likely. Red warnings are extremely rare anywhere in the UK and almost unknown in North Staffordshire and South Cheshire. Records have been broken in recent days as the country saw temperatures reach the 30s across much of the country. The second highest temperature ever in Britain was recorded in Cambridge at around 3.37pm – when the mercury hit 38.1C. This also made it the hottest July day ever recorded in Britain. The hot weather also led to disruption on the railways at Network Rail warned of the risks of the track buckling.

The weather warning is in force from 9am on Saturday until 3pm on Sunday. The Met Office warning states:  “An area of rain is expected to move slowly and erratically northwestwards across parts of the UK on Saturday and Sunday, and while some places within the warning area may see very little others could see several hours of heavy rain. “Accumulations of 40-60mm are possible, with perhaps as much as 80-100mm in places, especially over high ground.” Read MoreCordons remain in place following disturbance that left five injured Driver named following fatal collisionlast_img read more

Related content:itnTV “Conversations”: The Accuray Philosophy Artificial Intelligence | July 03, 2019 VIDEO: Artificial Intelligence May Assist in Pediatric Imaging Sudhen Desai, M.D., FSIR, interventional radiologist at Texas Children’s Hospital, editor of IR Quarterly for the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) and on the Board of Directors for the Society of Physician Entrepreneurs, explained how artificial intelligence (AI) can assist in pediatric imaging and the pitfalls of training AI systems. He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

She said in medical practice, department administration and collaboration on projects, people need to be cognoscente of bias they have engrained by culture for which they may not even be aware.She showed a slide of the AAPM membership makeup by generation and said members need to keep in mind the way each generation thinks and communicates varies by their generation’s life experience and upbringing.
