Visible minorities feel less safe than other Canadians Stats Canada

first_imgMONTREAL – Visible minorities, particularly Arabs and West Asians, feel less safe walking alone in their neighbourhoods after dark than do other Canadians, according to a Statistics Canada survey released Tuesday.The study was conducted with data collected in 2014.Forty-four per cent of respondents who identified themselves as belonging to a visible minority group said they felt “very safe” walking home alone after dark, versus 54 per cent for other Canadians.Stats Can noted that the majority of visible minorities in the country live in large cities, “where feelings of safety are relatively low.”“Yet even after taking into account where they lived, visible minorities remained less likely to report feeling safe than their non-visible minorities counterparts,” the agency said.Out of all the visible minority groups in the country, Arab and West Asian respondents were the most likely to say they felt unsafe.Fifteen per cent of Arab respondents said they did not feel safe walking alone as did 16 per cent of West Asians.“This marks a change when compared with perceptions of personal safety 10 years earlier, when the sense of safety felt by Arabs and West Asians was comparable to that of other visible minorities,” the report said.last_img read more

Live Nation And RED Join Forces To Fight AIDS

first_imgFrom now until June 10, Live Nation Entertainment will work once again with (RED) to raise awareness and money for The Global Fund to fight AIDS.Fans can take action locally by donating up to $25 when purchasing tickets on the Ticketmaster.com, Ticketmaster.ca and LiveNation.com websites.“When we first worked together in 2013, we created nearly 100 million impressions and raised more than $130,000 for (RED), through the power of music, sports and live entertainment fans across the world,” said Live Nation Entertainment CEO and President Michael Rapino. “Now, we want to take it a step further and see if we can double these numbers in 2014. So many people see the importance of coming together to help begin the end of AIDS, and we want to do our part in helping to deliver an AIDS Free Generation in our lifetime. I look forward to seeing everyone work together to pull off this critical campaign.”Fans purchasing tickets to select live entertainment, sports, theater, family and music events can support (RED) and the critical work of the Global Fund by making monetary contributions at the end of their ticket purchase on the aforementioned websites. 100% of these donations will go directly to the Global Fund, an international financing institution that delivers programs which provide prevention, treatment, counseling, HIV testing and care services for people living with HIV/AIDS. Life-saving medication can cost as little as 40 cents a day, meaning that a $25 donation can deliver more than two months’ worth of medicine.Said Deborah Dugan, CEO, (RED): “We are excited to build upon our relationship with Live Nation in support of (RED)’s mission to help end mother-to-child transmission of HIV. We thank everyone for rallying around this incredibly important goal.”Founded in 2006 by Bono and Bobby Shriver, (RED) has currently generated more than $250 million for the Global Fund.

Child killer McClintic removed from healing lodge and is back in prison

first_img(Tori Stafford, 8, was murdered in Woodstock, Ont. in April 2009) Melissa RidgenBeverly AndrewsAPTN NewsLess than 24-hours after receiving a report from Corrections Canada, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale ordered Terri-Lynne McClintic back to prison.The 28-year old is serving life in prison for the first degree murder of eight year old Tori Stafford in 2009.“I hope everyone can sleep easier knowing Terri-Lynne, a child killer, has been moved from their community and back where she belongs,” said Rodney Stafford, Tori’s father.APTN InFocus put healing lodges under the microscope Wednesday.The Stafford family has been in the spotlight since it was revealed McClintic had been down-graded to a medium-security risk – despite several violent offences in prison – and moved to the Okimaw Ohci Healing Lodge in Saskatchewan.McClintic’s brother told Global News that they are not indigenous.(Rodney Stafford after a rally on Parliament Hill to have McClintic moved back to prison)Stafford said he was elated after receiving word that McClintic, the woman who lured his daughter to a car so her boyfriend could rape and kill her, is out of a healing lodge and back behind bars.McClintic has now been transferred to the women’s prison in Edmonton.Stafford said he’s relieved for the Nekaneet First Nation, where the healing lodge is located, and the town of Maple Creek.On Thursday, Marlene Orr, the director of the Stan Daniels Healing lodge in Alberta, told APTN InFocus that healing lodges are an important option in the rehabilitation of some offenders.She said an inmate is closely vetted and must show she really wants to make changes in her life.“They have to have good behavior while they are in the institution,” Orr said..“They can’t be affiliated with any security threat groups, they can’t have been breaking the rules while they’ve been in prison. They have to demonstrate a commitment to working with us in addressing those root issues.”Maximum security inmates are currently eligible to enter Stan Daniels healing centre, if they have worked their way to a medium- or minimum -security designation – regardless of the crime they were originally sentenced for.That means they can become eligible to transfer to healing lodges, Orr added.“And we very clearly lay out the expectations,” she said. “They also have to be supported by their team the institution which includes their parole officer and other correctional staff.”But Matt Willan, who works with offenders through Ogijiita Pimatiswin Kinamatwin in Manitoba, thinks some crimes are too serious to work off in a healing lodge.“There are some crimes you commit that you can’t come back from,” he said.Tori was walking home from school in Woodstock April 8, 2009, when McClintic approached her, promised to show her a puppy and lured her into a car driven by Michael Rafferty.McClintic pleaded guilty to first-degree murder in 2010 and testified at Rafferty’s trial in 2012, where he was convicted of first-degree murder.Rodney said he isn’t against healing lodges, but he doesn’t want McClintic there.“I do believe it is a good situation for some people who warrant going back out on the streets,” he said.“But when it comes to the heinous acts behind a monstrous killer, of a child at that, how does somebody even remotely of this magnitude get into one of these facilitates?”The Stafford family had started a petition to have McClintic returned to prison.last_img read more

Football rules ratings but Big Bang Theory energized

first_imgLOS ANGELES — “The Big Bang Theory” is picking up ratings steam in the final stretch of its 12-year run.The CBS sitcom was last week’s most-watched entertainment show as total viewership ticked up to a 2018-19 season high of more than 13 million.That’s according to Nielsen figures out Tuesday, and a welcome sign for CBS: Viewership for last fall’s season debut episode of “Big Bang Theory” fell 30 per cent from the fall 2017 opener.While audience interest is likely to grow as the sitcom draws to its conclusion this spring, “Big Bang Theory” also is benefiting from the wrap-up of competing Thursday night NFL broadcasts.Football still dominated the week, as playoff games or related programming counted for six of the 10 most-watched shows. Top-rated network Fox was the big beneficiary.Lynn Elber, The Associated Presslast_img read more

UN rushes aid for tens of thousands of Chadian refugees in Cameroon

8 February 2008United Nations agencies and their partners are rushing emergency food, medicine and other relief items to assist some 30,000 people who have fled the fighting in Chad and are seeking refuge in neighbouring Cameroon. The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) estimates that after fighting erupted in the capital, N’Djamena, last Saturday between rebel forces and the army, 20,000 to 30,000 Chadians streamed over the Chari River to Kousseri, a remote town in north-eastern Cameroon.According to UNHCR, some Chadians started trickling back home Wednesday morning after an uneasy calm returned to N’Djamena. Some were returning just for the day and planning to go back to Cameroon overnight, while others have returned to their homes in the Chadian capital but left their families behind in Kousseri, which is more than 1,500 kilometres from Cameroon’s capital, Yaoundé.“Our teams in Kousseri have observed that there have been a lot of back-and-forth movements in the past two days, but it is too early to say if people are going back to their homes in Chad permanently,” UNHCR spokesperson Jennifer Pagonis told reporters in Geneva. The agency has started an emergency airlift to bring aid to the refugees in Cameroon. By Sunday, two flights carrying 90 tonnes of supplies, including plastic sheeting, blankets, jerry cans and cooking sets, will have arrived in Kousseri.The UN World Food Programme is transferring food, including rice, vegetables and oil, from its stocks in the Cameroonian town of Maroua to Kousseri. The agency will also be transporting by plane high-energy biscuits from Accra in Ghana to Kousseri. Concerned about the risk of epidemics, the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) has ordered 25,000 doses of both meningitis and measles vaccines.UN agencies and their partners are preparing to respond to an influx of up to 50,000 people from Chad into Cameroon.“The situation is difficult, and not yet under control. We are concerned about the fate of the most vulnerable,” said Sophie de Caen, UN Resident Coordinator for Cameroon. “However, food, non-food items and medical supplies have already been ordered, and the first shipments have already reached the refugees.”Meanwhile, UNHCR reports that the situation in N’Djamena was calm today but the streets remained empty and very few shops were open. “UNHCR local staff who remained in N’Djamena are starting to collect UNHCR tents which were looted from our warehouse and later abandoned by looters in the streets,” said Ms. Pagonis, adding that the agency’s office in the capital was not touched.In eastern Chad, UNHCR and its partners are continuing to provide protection and assistance to 240,000 Sudanese refugees in 12 camps and 180,000 internally displaced Chadians. read more

Ex envoy and Mackwoods Chairman hits back at SEC directive

In a strongly worded response to the directive issued by the Securities and Exchanges Commission, regarding the sale of 60.8% shares of Agalawatte Plantations PLC, Chairman of Mackwoods Plantations Pvt Ltd, Dr Chrishantha Nonis pointed out that the transaction was carried out with due authorization and instructions being issued to the stock broker.The action by the SEC in issuing a directive on a complaint made by non-shareholders, without making any formal inquiries into the matter, is highly questionable, he says. The sale of Agalawatte shares was completed on 14th July 2016 and six days after the share transaction was concluded, the SEC on 20th July issued a directive stating that shareholder approval had not been obtained. The stock broking firm has informed the SEC that the contents in the directive are incorrect in that the instructions received were not only from Dr. Chris Nonis but also from Mrs. Shelendra Ranaweera and Mr. Lalith Fonseka, which information was available to the SEC. The letter further states that the SEC should not interfere with the internal affairs of Mackwoods Plantations (Private) Ltd, and has requested that the SEC withdraw its allegations. (Colombo Gazette) read more

Academies are using taxpayers money to pay unjustifiably high salaries to senior

first_imgThe committee calls for the government to do more to challenge academy trusts that are paying excessive salaries Staff costs make up more than 70% of a school’s cost, so large salary hikes, when overall funding is not rising at the same rate “add to the financial pressures faced by schools”, the group of MPs said.It also says the Department for Education has “no easy way” of linking performance and salaries, so could not tell the committee if those earning large pay packages are those responsible for the best-performing schools.The committee calls for the government to do more to challenge academy trusts that are paying excessive salaries and take action if they cannot be justified.Trustees are responsible for helping to make decisions relating to an academy trust – which can run one or a group of schools, and according to government information, they would only receive payment for their work as an employee in an academy trust – such as a headteacher, or the chief executive of a chain of academies (often known as a multi-academy trust). Meg Hillier, PAC chair The report also says that academy trusts are educating increasing numbers of children and handling large amounts of public money, the report says.”It is therefore crucial that they show the highest standards of governance, accountability and financial management,” it says.”Too often academy trusts are falling short of these standards and the Department for Education (the Department) is too slow to react.”PAC chair Meg Hillier said: “More than two million pupils are taught by academies in England. The governance and financial management of these schools is fundamentally important to pupils’ educational outcomes and future life prospects.”If parents, Parliament and others are to hold them properly to account, it is vital they have timely access to transparent and detailed information. Academies and the trusts that run them must be judged against the standards expected of other schools funded by the taxpayer.”She also said: “Excessive trustee salaries deprive the frontline of vital funds and it is alarming that, in two-thirds of cases where Government has challenged individual trusts on pay exceeding £150,000, it has not been satisfied by the response.”A Department for Education spokesperson said: “All academy trusts operate under a strict system of financial accountability and have to publish their audited accounts.”To ensure all pupils get the excellent education they deserve we continue to scrutinise the system on an annual basis and take action where necessary, such as recently asking all trusts paying high salaries to justify them.” The committee calls for the government to do more to challenge academy trusts that are paying excessive salariescenter_img Academies are using taxpayers’ money to pay “unjustifiably” high salaries to senior staff, MPs have warned.In some cases, academy trusts are failing to prove that hefty pay packages are appropriate, according to the public accounts committee.In a new report, MPs argue that if pay is left unchallenged, there is a risk that high wages become accepted as the norm, which will pile more pressure on school budgets.Academies are state schools that are not under local authority control, but run by trusts. The PAC report says: “Some academy trusts appear to be using public money to pay excessive salaries.”The latest official annual report and accounts for academies in England show that there were 102 instances where trustees were paid salaries in excess of £150,000, it notes.It goes on to say that last November, the Education and Skills Funding Agency (ESFA) wrote to 29 single academy trusts (those responsible for just one school) where a trustee was paid in excess of £150,000, requesting justification. While all 29 have responded, in two-thirds of cases ESFA is not yet satisfied with the response, the committee said.”Unjustifiably high salaries use public money that could be better spent on improving children’s education and supporting frontline teaching staff, and do not represent value for money,” the report says.”If the payment of such high salaries remains unchallenged, it is more likely that such high salaries become accepted as indicative of the market rate. This could then distort the employment market in the sector for senior staff.” Meg Hillier, PAC chair Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Short URL https://jrnl.ie/3358407 THE ST VINCENT’S Hospital Group will have ‘corporate oversight’ of the new National Maternity Hospital when it moves to its new campus, according to the agreement reached between the two hospitals.The agreement reached in November between the SVHG and the current National Maternity Hospital at Holles Street has been released to the public.The agreement between the two hospitals over the provision of the new NMH is in the form of a 25-page report by mediator Kieran Mulvey.The hospital is to be located at Elm Park alongside St Vincent’s University Hospital on the campus owned by the SVHG.The agreement states that the SVHG will retain a “corporate unitary oversight of all campus utilities and services”.The report states that this oversight can be achieved providing the SVHG board with assurances that the NMH will be managed effectively, and that: The appropriate legal, financial, regulatory and risk assessments are up to date and undertaken in accordance with statutory requirements.This oversight will be further ensured by adding two directors nominated from the current NMH to the board of the SVHG (as well as the new maternity hospital).“Clinical independence”The proposed NMH has been mired in controversy since it emerged that SVHG would take ownership of the hospital.This stems from the fact that the religious order the Sisters of Charity are the principal shareholders in the SVHG.The agreement states that the SVHG will be the “sole owner” of the new hospital.The hospital will be operated as a new company: The National Maternity Hospital at Elm Park DAC (limited by shares).This ownership will be dependent on the Minister of Health holding a “Golden Share” in the hospital, which will allow its reserved powers, constitution and composition to be protected.Current Health Minister Simon Harris, as well as the current Master of the NMH at Holles Street Dr Rhona Mahony and others have ensured the new hospital would have “clinical independence”.This is laid out in the agreement under the heading of “reserved powers”, which ensures:Clinical and operational independence in the provision of maternity, gynaecology, obstetrics and neonatal services (without religious, ethnic or other distinction) in the hospital at Elm Park, Dublin and the provision of medical, surgical, nursing, midwifery and other health services at Elm Park, Dublin, including strategic planning in relation to the development of such services in the future in accordance with developing best practice.Independence will be further ensured by the retention of the role of the Mastership model at the hospital.These “reserved powers” will be protected by the “Golden Share” which ensures they:…shall not be capable of amendment save with the prior written and unanimous approval of all the Directors of the Board and with the consent of the Minister for Health.Board of directorsAs previously reported, the agreement lays out that the board of directors at the new hospital should be made up of nine directors.Four will be nominated by the SVHG, four will be nominated by the current NMH, and one will be an independent international expert in Obstetrics and Gynaecology.The report on the agreement states that the “appropriate legal mechanisms” will need to be put in place regarding the structure, objectives, role and powers of the new hospital.There have been significant developments over the new maternity hospital since the report was first sent to Minister Harris in November.Over 92,699 people signed an online petition calling for the Sisters of Charity to be “blocked” as sole owners of the new hospital, with protests held last week outside the Department of Health.Following the public outcry, the SVHG board said that it would be reviewing its role in the future of the project.The chairman of the SVHG board today released a statement ensuring that any medical procedure that is currently legal in Ireland will be carried out at the new National Maternity Hospital.Commenting on the release of the agreement today, Harris said the boards of both hospitals would be meeting this week and would review progress to date.He restated the assurance on clinical independence and said that he intended to report to Government on the status of the project by the end of May.You can view the full agreement hereRead: Over 70,000 sign petition to prevent Sisters of Charity becoming owners of maternity hospitalRead: St Vincent’s chairman: Any legal medical procedure will be carried out at new maternity hospital Tuesday 25 Apr 2017, 10:37 PM 117 Comments last_img read more

However, by legitimising and turning to Jeremy Corbyn, to assist you at this crucial stage, rather than being bold, is grave error,” he said.A front page story in today’s Daily Telegraph reported that May was “ignoring the will of her Cabinet” by seeking Corbyn’s help instead of pursuing no deal and that “a full-scale Tory rebellion” could follow.May’s director of communications denied the story this morning.With reporting by Rónán Duffy center_img I simply cannot support any further extension to Article 50 and this obviously means I cannot stay in government.  After much contemplation, I have decided to leave Theresa May’s Government. I’m grateful to the PM for giving me the opportunity to serve the UK and I will continue to represent my constituents as the MP for Daventry. pic.twitter.com/sHkVhwJ7bb— Chris Heaton-Harris (@chhcalling) April 3, 2019 Wednesday 3 Apr 2019, 4:40 PM Speaking yesterday after a marathon day of talks with her Cabinet colleagues, Theresa May said she wanted an extension to the Brexit deadline in order to agree a deal. May said she would seek talks with Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in order to facilitate this and there were suggestions that May could pursue a softer Brexit, such as the inclusion of a customs union arrangement, as part of these talks.During last night’s statement in Downing Street, May said that although she believed the UK could “make a success” of no-deal in the long run, leaving with a deal would be preferable.In his resignation letter, Heaton-Harris said that while he would have preferred to leave the EU with May’s deal, he believes the UK “would have swiftly overcome any immediate issues of leaving without a deal and gone on to thrive”. “It has been a privilege to work with some quite brilliant civil servants in my Department and across your government. They have moved mountains to prepare our country for leaving the European Union without a negotiated deal,” Heaton-Harris wrote. “Unfortunately, I do not believe the briefings you have received on these matters recently have received on these matters recently have reflected all they have achieved or the preparations out European partners have made,” he wrote. However, I completely understand you do not want to leave the European Union without a negotiated deal and that obviously makes my job in government irrelevant. Other resignationEarlier today, assistant government whip Nigel Adams also announced his resignation. “I believe we have two great challenges. We must deliver the Brexit that the people voted for. And we must prevent the calamity of a Corbyn government. Sadly, I fear that we are now at risk of simultaneously failing in both,” Adams wrote in a letter to the Prime Minister.

Travelling to Greece New CorinthPatra highway finally open

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras inaugurated the new national highway linking Corinth to the western port of Patra on Tuesday less following the launch of the new Tempe motorway.The new highway operated by the Olympia Odos company, runs from Corinth centre across the northern Peloponnese to Patra and is expected to reduce the travel time to Athens to 100 minutes.The Olympia Highway has a total length of 202 kilometres, from Elefsina to Corinth and then to Patras and the Patras bypass. The Corinth-Patras section inaugurated on Tuesday is 120 kilometres long, with two lanes and an emergency lane in both directions and 12 completed tunnels with a total length of 18 kilometres along its length.The contractor’s obligations, in addition to building the Corinth-Patras highway, include the improvement of the existing Elefsina-Corinth section of the road and the Patras bypass, with a length of 82 kilometres.The total cost of construction is 1.8 billion euros and the cost of land expropriations is 223 million euros, or 172 million less than the amounts originally demanded by contractors before renegotiation.“It is an important work for Patras, the Peloponnese and Western Greece that would never have been completed if it wasn’t for the difficult negotiations with contractors and construction companies,” Mr Tsipas said.“We are opening the road that was hindering the connection of Western Greece with the capital, we are opening the road to exit the crisis and supervision… this is the strong symbolism of the work. “This is a symbol of Greece’s ability to stand on its own two feet which will mark and end to the wearisome journey that motorists had been subjected to until now,” the PM stressed.Referring to the long delays that had dogged the project, which had started in 2007 and was only half finished in 2015 when SYRIZA came to power, Infrastructure and Transport Minister Christos Spirtzis noted that the work had been bogged down by such an “incredibly tangled skein of obstacles, loose ends, problems and reactions”.“The more than 10-year road blockade of Patras, the third-largest city of the country is finally ending. There is finally an end to the fear of an accident on a road that was literally drenched in blood all along its length. There is not a family in western Greece, Aitoloakarnania and Epirus that has not mourned the loss of loved one on this road,” he said.All of the lanes will be opened for the Easter holidays while tollbooths will not be in operation before the weekend. Reportedly, there will be slight moderation to cost and operation days after Easter.The general sentiment has been positive apart from certain political groups contesting the naming of some tunnels.The tunnel commemorating Panos Mylonas, a young man whose death on the old Athens-Patra highway in a 2004 crash prompted the creation of a road safety institute has been received warmly yet the Nikos Temponeras one, named after the teacher and left-wing activist who was killed in a protest against education reform in the early 1990s and the Andreas Papandreou tunnel have stirred controversy.last_img read more

Guardiola and Ancelotti reveal their mentors

first_imgCarlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola have opened up about the mentors who had a huge influence on their careers and man-management skills.The two tacticians sat down on stage at the Festival dello Sports event in Trento and debated the fundamentals of football. You can read part one of their conversation here.“Johan Cruijff was the most important person that I worked with, as he opened my eyes with his style of football,” Manchester City manager Guardiola told Football Italia.“He helped us all understand a different way of looking at football. It was like going to school every day. We would win and he’d tell us the reason we were winning. He made us fall in love.“It’s no coincidence that so many players who worked under Sacchi and Cruyff are now Coaches because their minds were opened. They gave us a new love for the sport.“I didn’t invent tiki-taka. We won the Champions League with Barcelona and a team full of players who had started in the academy at the age of 8-10.Sacchi explains Sarri, Conte, and Ancelotti Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Arrigo Sacchi talked about how Sarri has a tougher time at Juventus than Conte at Inter; while Ancelotti’s “blood is boiling” at Napoli.Arrigo Sacchi…“It was a unique moment of the stars aligning, with the faith of the club and a group of lads who all saw football the same way. We could’ve signed bigger stars, but wanted to cultivate that hunger.“To be honest, I don’t really like tiki-taka much as a concept, but we knew exactly where we wanted to go with the ball. There is nostalgia for it now, but it was wonderful to experience it. We’ll see if they still talk about it in 10-20 years, much like they do with great movies.”Ancelotti was one of the founding figures of Sacchi’s Grande Milan project of the late 1980s, then became his assistant manager for Italy at the 1994 World Cup.“I had some important teachers and on a human resources level, none better than Nils Liedholm. In the 1980s he was fundamental, as he didn’t put pressure on.“The role of a Coach is complex, but enjoyable, as you have to think that there are 25 players and everyone is important in the same way, from the kit staff to the biggest star. My idea of dealing with a group is to make people as comfortable as possible, give responsibility and delegate.last_img read more

Soybean Imports Bring Soybean Rust Back into News

first_imgWith Brazilian soybeans coming into the United States for crushing, questions about the transmission of soybean rust (SBR) in plant material are being renewed. USDA’s soybean rust Pest Information Platform for Extension and Education (IPM PIPE) continues to be available here. Currently, according to the SBR IPM PIPE, SBR has been detected in a few counties in Texas, where conditions are conducive for disease development. Soybean rust has been a deregulated pathogen since it was detected in the United States in 2004; it is an airborne pathogen that when environmental conditions are conducive for disease development and the pathogen is present, disease will occur.A 2004 assessment of risks associated with soybean rust on imported soybean grain, seed and meal concluded that soybean meal poses a negligible risk for the introduction of SBR.  This is because the processing associated with producing meal includes heat and other treatments that kill spores. The same risk assessment found that soybean grain and seed were found to pose a low risk. According to USDA, if an assessment were done today, the risks of introduction via grain or meal would likely be less since the likelihood of spread from locations where the pathogen is already established in the US provides a more substantial potential pathway.In 2013 SBR was detected in 408 counties in 13 states in the U.S. including 107 counties in GA, 82 counties in Miss., 67 counties in Ala., 59 parishes in La., 22 counties in Fla., 20 counties in Ark., 13 counties in S.C., 10 counties in N.C., nine counties in Tenn., eight counties in Va., four counties in Ill., three counties in Ky. and two counties in Texas.last_img read more

6yearold writes letter to Obama offering Syrian boy a home

first_imgNEW YORK (WSVN) — A little boy from New York stole the hearts of millions, when he wrote a letter to President Obama, hoping to adopt a little Syrian brother.Six-year-old Alex, got in touch with the Commander in Chief, after seeing the image of 5-year-old, Omran Daqneesh, whose face was covered in blood and dust after an air strike over the summer.The letter read in part, “Dear President Obama. Remember the boy who was picked up by the ambulance in Syria? Can you please go get him and bring him to our home? Park in the driveway or on the street and we’ll be waiting for you guys with flags, flowers, and balloons. We will give him a family and he will be our brother.”President Obama was so moved by the letter, he praised Alex’s sense of selflessness during a summit on refugees at the United Nations. “We can all learn from Alex,” said Obama. “Imagine the suffering we could ease, and the lives we could save, and what our world would look like if seeing a child who’s hurting anywhere in the world we say ‘we will give him a family and he will be our brother.’”The Obama Administration recently announced a plan to increase the number of refugees admitted into the country.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp.

Give Thanks To Wilmingtons School Nurses On National School Nurse Day

first_imgSILVER SPRING, MD — National School Nurse Day on May 9, 2018 is a time to celebrate the specialty practice of school nursing. In 1972, the National Association of School Nurses (NASN) created National School Nurse Day to recognize school nurses and acknowledge their role in the educational setting. NASN applauds the contributions school nurses make every day to improve the safety, health, and academic success of all students.The theme this year – School Nurses: Advocates for 21st Century Student Health – reinforces the Framework for 21st Century School Nursing Practice which helps direct school nurses to be in the forefront of promoting a culture of health in their communities. It is reflective of the significant roles school nurses have in the health care of their school communities to help make a healthier place for children and families to learn and grow.“The school nurse voice is more powerful than most of us realize. It is when we help a teacher understand how to alter lesson plans so students with food anaphylaxis can participate in all learning activities. It is when we teach children healthy habits so they can grow and thrive,” said NASN President Nina Fekaris, MS, BSN, RN, NCSN. Adding, “A professional school nurse is needed in every school to care for every child because school nursing is the foundation for student health.”NASN believes all teachers deserve to have school nurses in their buildings so that teachers can focus on instruction and students’ individual educational needs; and parents deserve to feel secure that children are safe at school and their health needs are met every day by specialized school nurses. School nurses have the skills to plan and implement care for students with chronic and medically complex conditions and prepare school staff to recognize and respond appropriately to potential emergencies. Prevention is key in school wellness and safety, but planned emergency response and disaster preparedness is an essential part of the important role school nurses play.“It is a tremendous privilege to honor our nation’s school nurses as we celebrate National School Nurse Day,” said NASN Executive Director Donna Mazyck, MS, RN, NCSN. “School nurses influence wellness and disease prevention practices as change agents in schools and communities.”(NOTE: The above press release is from NASN.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

Sketches of Two of John Wayne Gacys Victims Made Public in Hopes

first_imgThe arrest of serial killer John Wayne Gacy in 1978, followed by the discovery of more than 20 dead bodies under his ranch house in metropolitan Chicago, was one of the most sickening, heartbreaking chapters in American history. Gacy was eventually convicted of murdering 33 teenage boys and young men. “This is the worst crime of the century,” said a deeply shaken investigator of the Gacy crimes as the bodies were being unearthed, one by one, in the documentary Crime Stories: John Wayne Gacy.Gacy was put under surveillance after a 15-year-old boy disappeared and his parents convinced police that their son could not possibly be a runaway. The boy, Robert Piest, had said he was going to meet an adult man about a contracting job. He turned out to be local businessman, civic leader, and volunteer party clown John Wayne Gacy.Gacy with First Lady Rosalynn Carter on May 6, 1978. Six years after the killings began and seven months before his final arrest.Six of the bodies found under Gacy’s house have never been identified. But efforts have not ceased to bring closure to the horrific case.In late July 2018, authorities released highly detailed facial reconstructions of two unidentified victims of Gacy. The images, provided by the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children (NCMEC) and the Cook County Sheriff’s office, are part of the ongoing effort to identify all of the victims.John Wayne Gacy’s clown suit displayed at the National Museum of Crime & Punishment, Washington, D.C. Photo by Steve Terrell CC BY 2.0They were created by a forensic artist and show what the two victims may have looked like.CBS News reported that “it’s been determined that one victim, John Doe #10, was a white male between 17 and 21 years old, 5-foot-7 to 5-foot 11, according to the NCMEC. Before his death, he had suffered an injury to his left clavicle, which had healed well over time. He also had a few dental fillings.”The second victim, John Doe #13, “is believed to have been a white male between 18 and 21 years old who was 5-foot-9 to 6-foot-2. The NCEMC said he had wavy dark brown hair, and one of his upper teeth was displaced behind another tooth.”41 Years After Being Killed, DNA Identifies An Unknown Victim Of John Wayne GacyInvestigators insist they won’t stop searching until all six remaining unknown victims are identified.“The life of the person that was just murdered is no more or less important than a murder victim from 30 years ago. Not in my mind,” Cook County Sheriff’s Detective Jason Moran told CBS.Some of Gacy’s victims were runaways, found at bus stops or on the roadside hitchhiking, but some were employees of his or local youths living at home like Robert Piest. After the case drew publicity, there was criticism that the Chicago police had dismissed the concerns of parents who reported their sons missing, saying the boys must be runaways. If the police had taken a report of a missing boy more seriously earlier in this period, some say Gacy would have been caught and lives saved.Shown are headshots of boys and young men whose bodies have been definitely identified as the victims of John Wayne Gacy.Although Gacy initially confessed to his crimes, he later denied them. He attempted an insanity defense, but was convicted and sentenced to death for 12 murders.Macy was executed by lethal injection on May 10, 1994 at Stateville Correctional Center. He is considered a psychopath and is not known to have felt remorse.Family, neighbors, and friends were stunned by the arrest of the divorced Gacy. His house was a popular spot for holiday parties, though there were those who said they were nauseated by the awful stench wafting through the house in the 1970s.John Wayne Gacy’s art kit displayed at the National Museum of Crime and Punishment in Washington, D.C. Photo by Sarah Stierch CC BY 2.0Gacy was active in local politics and even met First Lady Rosalynn Carter through charity work in 1978.John Wayne Gacy often dressed up and performed at charity events, parades, and children’s parties as “Pogo the Clown.” He designed his own costumes and taught himself to apply clown makeup. He also painted clowns while he was on death row in prison. He said his artwork was intended “to bring joy into people’s lives.” Some of the paintings were later auctioned. Several were purchased so that they could be destroyed.Read another story from us: A book written by 84-year-old man claims his best friend, a fellow skydiver, was the real D. B.
