Don’t have to be Einstein to work that out: Trevor Bayliss on England’s top-order problems ahead of Ashes

first_imgDon’t have to be Einstein to work that out: Trevor Bayliss on England’s top-order problems ahead of AshesEngland coach Trevor Bayliss also said Jason Roy will need some time to adjust to red-ball cricket, saying that the aggressive opener need to be more selective than usual. advertisement Asian News International New DelhiJuly 28, 2019UPDATED: July 28, 2019 13:52 IST Jason Roy has been named in England’s 14-man squad for 1st Ashes Test (Reuters Photo)HIGHLIGHTSTrevor Bayliss conceded England have had long-standing issues with top-orderEngland announced a 14-man squad for 1st Ashes Test vs AustraliaJason Roy, Joe Denly and Rory Burns are top-order options for EnglandAhead of the upcoming Ashes series, England’s coach Trevor Bayliss has said that the team has been hampered by the top-order problems since last six or seven years, saying you don’t have to be Einstein to work that out.”You don’t have to be Einstein to work that out. They have been for the last six or seven years, but it didn’t stop us from winning the Ashes four years ago,” International Cricket Council (ICC) quoted Bayliss as saying.England announced their 14-member squad for the first Ashes Test against Australia on Saturday. Jason Roy, Rory Burns, and Joe Denly were named in the team and they will be the opening options for the side in the upcoming series.The team defeated Ireland in the one-off Test match by 143 runs. England were bundled out for just 85 runs in the first innings and they managed to score 303 runs in their second innings.Defending 181 in the second innings, England bowled out Ireland for 38 (the seventh-lowest total in Test cricket), and as a result, the team registered a comprehensive win.Roy who scored just 5 in the first innings, managed to change his fortunes around, as he played a knock of 72 in the second innings.England coach admitted that it might take some time for Roy to adjust to red-ball cricket.”Like any debutant, he looked nervous, but to score 70-odd in your first Test was a good effort. There was a bit more in those wickets than I’m sure he’s been used to in white-ball cricket over the last few years, but runs are runs. He wouldn’t be the first player to look scratchy and eke out runs. In fact, that’s a good sign, I think,” Bayliss said.advertisement”We want him to go out and play his natural game, but in red-ball cricket, you have to be a little more selective. You’ve got to make a conscious effort to say to yourself, I’m not going to go for the big cover drive on the up until I’m really settled, the wicket is flat or the ball’s not doing as much,” he added.In the 14-member team, fast bowler Jofra Archer received his maiden Test call-up.The 24-year-old found a spot in the squad on the back of his impressive performance in England’s successful ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup campaign.Archer readiness for five-day cricket will be assessed, England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) had announced.Jos Buttler and Ben Stokes, both who were rested for the one-off Test against Ireland, also returned to the squad. Lewis Gregory and Jack Leach, who were part of the one-off Test, were dropped from the side.The squad will be reporting to Birmingham on July 29.England’s 14-man squad for first Ashes Test is as follows: Joe Root (c), Moeen Ali, James Anderson, Jofra Archer, Jonny Bairstow (wk), Stuart Broad, Rory Burns, Jos Buttler, Sam Curran, Joe Denly, Jason Roy, Ben Stokes (vc), Olly Stone, Chris Woakes.England and Australia will compete in five Ashes Test matches from August 1 to September 16.For sports news, updates, live scores and cricket fixtures, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.

Commerce Minister Calls for Small Business to Formalize Operations

By on October 24, 2019

first_imgStory Highlights The policy is about “applying resources in a manner that is designed to have the real impact” on business growth and development. Minister of Industry, Investment, and Commerce, Hon. Anthony Hylton, has called on small business owners to formalize their operations to benefit from offerings under the new Micro, Small and Medium Enterprise (MSME) Entrepreneurship Policy.The Minister was addressing a recent Think Tank held at the Jamaica Information Service (JIS) head office in Kingston.He noted that the policy is not about “finding a way to give more money”, but “applying resources in a manner that is designed to have the real impact” on business growth and development.As such, he said, persons will benefit from training and guidance in areas such as product development, marketing, and incentives such as tax breaks during the infancy stage of the business.“Before you go to the bank and start asking for money, what you need is some training, exposure, and critical intervention from entities like the DBJ (Development of Bank of Jamaica) and others, who can intervene and talk to you about the feasibility of your business, marketing, and product differentiation,” Minister Hylton said.The MSME Policy seeks to implement a structured and sustainable programme to provide training to MSMEs through public-private partnerships in key areas such as: business planning, cash flow projections, management, book-keeping, inventory management, protection of intellectual property, standards, and market penetration. Small business owners urged to formalize their operations to benefit from offerings under the new MSME Entrepreneurship Policy.

Amazon dumps NYC headquarters and its promised 25000 jobs

By on

NEW YORK — Amazon abruptly dropped plans Thursday for a big new headquarters in New York that would have brought 25,000 jobs to the city, reversing course after politicians and activists objected to the nearly $3 billion in tax breaks promised to what is already one of the world’s richest, most powerful companies.“We are disappointed to have reached this conclusion — we love New York,” the online giant from Seattle said in a blog post announcing its withdrawal.The stunning move was a serious blow to Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio, who had lobbied intensely to land the project, competing against more than 200 other metropolitan areas across the continent that were practically tripping over each other to offer incentives to Amazon in a bidding war the company stoked.Cuomo lashed out at fellow New York politicians over Amazon’s change of heart, saying the project would have helped diversify the city’s economy, cement its status as an emerging tech hub and generate money for schools, housing and transit.“A small group politicians put their own narrow political interests above their community,” he said.But Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, New York City’s new liberal firebrand, exulted over Amazon’s pullout.“Today was the day a group of dedicated, everyday New Yorkers and their neighbours defeated Amazon’s corporate greed, its worker exploitation, and the power of the richest man in the world,” she tweeted, referring to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos.The swift unraveling of the project reflected growing antipathy toward large technology companies among liberals and populists who accuse big business of holding down wages and wielding too much political clout, analysts said.“This all of a sudden became a perfect test case for all those arguments,” said Joe Parilla, a fellow at the Brooking Institution’s Metropolitan Policy Program.Amazon ultimately decided it did not want to be drawn into that battle.Amazon announced in November that it had chosen the Long Island City section of Queens for one of two new headquarters, with the other in Arlington, Virginia. Both would get 25,000 jobs. A third site in Nashville, Tennessee, would get 5,000.The company planned to spend $2.5 billion building the New York office, choosing the area in part because of its large pool of tech talent. The governor and the mayor had argued that the project would spur economic growth that would pay for the $2.8 billion in state and city incentives many times over.After Amazon backed out, De Blasio, who according to his press secretary learned of the decision an hour before it was announced, criticized the company for not doing more to try to win over New Yorkers, saying: “You have to be tough to make it in New York City.”In pulling out, Amazon said it isn’t looking for a replacement location “at this time.” It said it plans to spread the technology jobs that were slated for New York to other offices around the U.S. and Canada, including Chicago, Toronto and Austin, Texas. It will also expand its existing New York offices, which already have about 5,000 employees.Amazon faced fierce opposition over the tax breaks, with critics complaining that the project was an extravagant giveaway — or worse, a shakedown — and that it wouldn’t provide much direct benefit to most New Yorkers.The list of grievances against the project grew as the months wore on, with critics complaining about Amazon’s stance on unions and some Long Island City residents fretting that the company’s arrival would drive up rents and other costs.Opposition to the deal was led in the Democrat-controlled state Senate by Michael Gianaris, the chamber’s No. 2 lawmaker, whose district includes Long Island City. Initially among the politicians who supported bringing an Amazon headquarters to the city, Gianaris did an about-face after the deal was announced, criticizing the secrecy surrounding the negotiations and the generous incentives.Earlier this month, Gianaris was appointed to a little-known state panel that could have ultimately been asked to approve the subsidies.The City Council probably would have had to file a lawsuit to scuttle the deal, which was structured to avoid the land use review process that most projects undergo.In recent weeks, City Council members held hearings at which they grilled Amazon officials about such things as the company’s contract with Immigration and Customs Enforcement to provide facial recognition technology.One City Council leader tried to get Amazon officials to agree to remain neutral in the face of any potential union drive. But an Amazon executive would not give such a commitment.A Quinnipiac University poll released in December found New York City voters supported having an Amazon headquarters 57 per cent to 26 per cent. But they were divided over the incentives: 46 per cent in favour, 44 per cent against.Construction industry groups and some local business leaders had urged the public and officials to get behind the plan.Eric Benaim, a realty executive who gets most of his sales and rentals in Long Island City, had led a petition in support of Amazon, drawing 4,000 signatures.“I woke up this morning and I had no clue this would happen. Zero. This news is a shock, and I’m devastated,” he said.Andrew Ousley, a business owner who lives near the proposed site, said he had been considering moving out before Amazon moved in.“Now that they’re not coming, I’m more likely to stay and see how the neighbourhood continues to grow and evolve in a more organic fashion,” he said.___Associated Press Writers Verena Dobnik, Karen Matthews, Kiley Armstrong in New York; Chris Rugaber in Washington; and Chris Carola and David Klepper in Albany, New York, contributed to this story.Joseph Pisani And Alexandra Olson, The Associated Press read more

Jagdeo dubs 2018 Budget most disastrous one ever presented to nation

By on September 25, 2019

…says it lived up to “low expectations” of public Moments after Finance Minister Winston Jordan delivered a near four-hour Budget 2018 presentation, Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo shredded the coalition Government’s fiscal plan for the next year, saying that it was without a doubt one of the most “disastrous” budgets ever presented to the nation.Speaking to reporters from the Committee Room at the Parliament Building on Monday evening, the former President noted that the Budget, which was themed “The journey to the good life continues”, failed on every standard, especially as it related to addressing key matters of concern to the public.“He has failed on every one of those parameters. Issues surrounding jobs, welfare, framework for growth and development, clarity of the Government’s vision in different areas, big-picture issues on where the country is going – we had hoped that all of these would be part of the budget presentation… they have lived up to the low expectations people had of the Government,” the Opposition Leader stated.Opposition Leader Bharrat Jagdeo addressing the media after Monday’s Budget 2018 presentation. With him are PPP/C Member of Parliament Juan Edghill and Opposition Chief Whip Gail TeixeiraAccording to Jagdeo, the Finance Minister merely took the routine work programmes from the various ministries and read those inconsequential details out to the nation, while failing to address key manifesto promises such as job creation. “This sort of thing is not what it takes to inspire a country to produce, to expand welfare, to generate jobs and so, on all those counts we have seen an utter abysmal failure on the part of the Minister of Finance and the Government,” he stated.Fictitious jobsAccording to Jagdeo, the biggest job creation initiative is GO-Invest expecting to bring in $154 billion in new investments next year. However, this, he said, is nothing but fictitious, since similar claims were made before when Government touted $180 billion in investments were expected to be facilitated by GO-Invest and create 10,000 jobs.“They lied then and it is  true now. That’s about US$750 million ($154 billion) of investments and they haven’t said in what sector. Even with the oil and gas sector, they can’t meet US$750 million in investments next year so that’s fictitious and it’s likely that the 5000 jobs that they are projecting to create next year is also fictitious,” he argued.Moreover, Jagdeo said that calling the measures outlined by the coalition Government “pathetic” would be a mild description.Opposition Leader, Dr Bharrat Jagdeo“There is nothing here that inspires; nothing that says to the Private Sector “we’re working as your partner”…there is nothing to say to any group of Guyanese, whether you’re a young person, whether you’re a pensioner, you’re a child going to school, whether you’re a farmer, a bauxite worker or anyone working in retail, trade or a servant that (you) have a better year to look forward to, based on this Budget. There is nothing to look forward to!” says the former President.Non-performing economyExamining the financial performance of the country’s economy, the Opposition Leader posited that the growth rate could not have matched the revised projection of 3.1 per cent despite Government collecting some 8.7 per cent more in total revenues through taxes and other means than last year. This, Jagdeo noted, confirms what the Opposition has been saying all along, that the economy is not performing.“They collected $8.2 billion dollars more taxes in 2017 than in 2016. We’ve been saying that this government is taking more taxes out of peoples’ pocket while arguing that they were too heavily taxed under the PPP,” he said.In addition to $10 billion being transferred from statutory agencies into the treasury, Jagdeo highlighted that there was a massive deterioration in the current account of the balance of payments of over US$200 million, while the marginal increase in the capital account is as a result of the inflows from ExxonMobil investments and disbursement. He added that the country’s debt has gone up and was projected to keep going up.The Opposition Leader went on to say that the announcement of plans to carry out a countrywide land valuation to increase rates and taxes was a contradiction of the Minister saying that there were no new taxes in the budget.“They are introducing a measure now that, having exhausted the taxes measured at the national level, they are now taking this to the NDCs (Neighbourhood Democratic Councils) and municipalities across the country,” he stated.Sugar, riceJagdeo also reflected on the Minister’s statements about the sugar industry, that the Special Purpose Unit (SPU) would guide the divestment of sugar and also reconfigure the remaining estates. Referring to the Guyana Sugar Corporation (GuySuCo) being termed an “old antiquated industry” that needs to be gotten rid of, Jagdeo said that had the PPP/C Government taken that approach regarding the bauxite industry when it took office in 1992, then bauxite production in Linden would not have continued.“We created alternatives for the people and still bauxite mines open in Linden and then we manage to privatise it. But this is their approach, an industry that about 100,000 of our people depend on, that’s already wreaking havoc on your balance of payments; now we’re seeing how impactful the sector is on everything else and this is your approach to it – short-sighted,” he asserted.With regard to the rice sector, the Opposition Leader pointed out that it was the only industry that was sustaining the economy’s growth rate and would be driving the growth rate in the future without any help from Government, except the fact that work is being done to upgrade the grains.EnergyTouching on Government’s popularly touted ‘Green State Development Strategy’ (GSDS), Jagdeo said that the coalition’s approach towards the energy pillar of the plan was one that was in contradiction of the overall objective of the strategy, which is the sustainable use of energy in a green economy.He referred to Jordan’s announcement of entirely scrapping the Amaila Falls Hydro Project and moving ahead with the Moco Moco Hydro Project. According to the Opposition Leader, the latter would only supply Lethem with half a megawatt of power while 50 megawatts of power will be generated from natural gas.“That would violate the objective of this (GSDS) plan, which is to have a 100 per cent of our energy come from renewable sources by 2025. And he sees nothing wrong with it,” Jagdeo asserted.TransparencyHe went on to outline that other energy projects such as the solar farm at Mabaruma along with others are being done without any transparency.This led the former Head of State to further highlight that Government failed to address key issues in the emerging oil sector such as the release of the oil contract in the name of transparency.“Frankly speaking, the worst period in modern history in terms of transparency and the use of public funds is now,” he stated as he listed several projects that Government was yet to fully come clean with the details on such as the new Demerara River crossing and the D’Urban Park.Moreover, while Minister Jordan lectured on the oil industry and how to spend impending resources wisely, at the same time Jagdeo said there was a deliberate act on the part of Government to delay the establishment of the Sovereign Wealth Fund.“This was a promise made two and a half years ago to get it done, but this is basically a delaying tactic. I think they do not want the Sovereign Wealth Fund in place because the Sovereign Wealth Fund will restrict their ability to waste and to use the resources wantonly and in a manner they’re using public resources now,” he stated.According to the Opposition Leader, a platitude approach was taken on other major issues of national importance such as constitution reform, debt management, Local Government Elections and the international Sustainable Development Goals.InfrastructureHe went on to reiterate that the coalition Government continues to piggyback on old projects started under the People’s Progressive Party/Civic (PPP/C) regime that are now coming to fruition.In fact, this is exactly the case in the infrastructure sector, Jagdeo said, noting that most of the road projects were initiated by the previous Administration. He specifically mentioned the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) Expansion Project, which the Opposition Leader said has turned into tragedy with the alterations to the original design.“This country needs an airport that will look to the future; it is unbelievable that you would just reduce the air bridges to two from eight when we have aircraft on the tarmac waiting (to disembark passengers)…They just reformulated the project and now we’re gonna have an airport that we will have to go back to (in the future to again expand),” he posited.

There has been no change in policy in relation to medical cards

By on September 22, 2019

first_imgUpdated 11pmMINISTER FOR HEALTH James Reilly said earlier today that there has been no change in policy in relation to medical cards in this country.Reilly said he would like to “reject out of hand” the suggestion that the Government has been specifically targeted medical card holders.He told the Oireachtas Health Committee this morning that the income saving measures in relation to medical cards will focus on ensuring that those who are entitled to a medical card are able to avail of one while who are not are not:I want to assure people that there has been no change in policy but what there has been is probity and members of this committee know full well that there will be a public accounts inquiring about people who have medical cards who shouldn’t have them.The minister told the members present that  it has never been the case that having a particular illness guarantees access to a medical card. “There is not , and nor has there ever been an automatic entitlement to a medical card on a the basis of a specific illness. That is the reality of the 1970s act,” he said.The provision of medical cards are made entirely on the basis of income, he said, and there is no legal basis for the HSE to provide one on the basis of being diagnosed with cancer or another condition.This point was reiterated by director general of the HSE Tony O’Brien who was also speaking before the committee.Free GP careThe minister said that, as a result of the extension of free GP care to children under five, 49 per cent of the Irish population will now have access to to free GP care. This he said is an increase of the 43 per cent which pertained in March 2011 which he says was in itself the highest proportion that has ever been in place.Reilly said that the long term intention of increasing GP care is to reduce the burden on hospitals which he said was the most expensive part of the health system.- First published 11.48amRead: Howlin confident of reaching €113m savings on medical cards >Read: ‘What did older people ever do to you?’: Taoiseach quizzed over Budget 2014 >last_img read more

first_imgFind out how striker Gonzalo Higuain finally scored his first two Premier League goals for Chelsea against Huddersfield Town at Stamford Bridge.After not having the most ideal debut for Chelsea FC this past week at Bournemouth, Argentine striker Gonzalo Higuain finally had his chance to prove why Maurizio Sarri brought him from Italian football.‘Pipita’ needed a more relaxed environment in order to get that confidence he required in order to start scoring goals for his new club, this version of the Blues was nothing like the one we saw at Vitality Stadium but they were playing against bottomers Huddersfield Town.This match would be very easy for Gonzalo Higuain to finally get his dream debut at Stamford Bridge, Sarri also decided to place Eden Hazard back on his left-winger position and the modification also paid off in the final result.The first half started with the Blues going all in for the first goal, it took the Blues over fifteen to find the right opportunity for Gonzalo Higuain’s killer instinct.The Argentine had already tried to land a few shots on target with no luck, but Kante was able to find him to get that first goal on the 16th minute of the match with a potent right-footed shot with practically no angle to take it..@G_Higuain 🙌 🙌 #CHEHUD pic.twitter.com/SwtktcAOEl— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) February 2, 2019Eden Hazard scored the second goal just before half-time after the Blues got awarded a penalty, the Belgian winger was very active throughout the whole first half and manager Maurizio Sarri seemed satisfied with the overall performance thus far.Ross Barkley’s inclusion in the starting eleven was also a great idea from the manager, the English player was a perfect link between N’Golo Kante’s defensive tasks and Gonzalo Higuain’s danger area.This also gave Hazard more freedom to play on his preferred left flank without having to move to the middle because Ross had that space covered very well, the Belgian actually received a clinical assist from Barkley well into the second half and Eden moved past the goalkeeper with a beautiful dribble that gave him the space to score that third Chelsea goal.With the Blues’ number ’10’ already having a brace, Gonzalo Higuain was eager to get another goal that could give him even more confidence in a game that was already decided for Maurizio Sarri’s squad.This moment came only a few minutes after Hazard’s second goal, and it was something we weren’t ready for.Tammy Abraham, ChelseaChelsea hat-trick hero Tammy Abraham hopes for more Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Tammy Abraham hopes this season will be his big breakthrough at Chelsea after firing his first hat-trick for the club in Saturday’s 5-2 win at Wolves.⚽️⚽️ Double trouble! ⚽️⚽️ pic.twitter.com/4LJpIbtvjV— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) February 2, 2019Turns out that Gonzalo Higuain found a perfect partner in N’Golo Kante, the French midfielder provided him with a second assist just outside the box that ‘Pipita’ turned into pure magic.A long-range curler straight to the top corner left Higuain’s right foot, a perfect way for him to get his dream debut as a Chelsea player at Stamford Bridge.Manager Maurizio Sarri has a very special understanding of this player, they proved it during the Napoli days and it appears they might do it again at Chelsea this season.The final minutes were also good enough for one last goal for the Blues, Willian was slick enough to see David Luiz moving closer to him during a corner-kick and assisted his compatriot in order to get that final goal through a well-placed header.With this 5-0 result, Chelsea can finally breathe a little bit and salvage their Top Four position regardless of how Arsenal does on Sunday vs Manchester City.The heated discussion Maurizio Sarri had with the players after the Bournemouth defeat seems to have paid off, but the Blues still have to play against a more competitive squad and see if they really are back to form.🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟#CHEHUD— Chelsea FC (@ChelseaFC) February 2, 2019How many goals will Gonzalo Higuain score for Chelsea this season?

The students created an algorithm to crunch mass Game of Thrones data to predict who will live and die in the final season. You’ll find all of their predictions here. Daenerys Targaryen, Tyrion Lannister, Varys, Samwell Tarly and Jaimie Lannister are dubbed the most likely to survive. Bronn, with a 93% likelihood, has been deemed most probable to die, followed by Gregor Clegane (The Mountain), Sansa Stark, Bran Stark and Sandor Clegane (The Hound).  Game of Thrones Season 8: All your questions answered… 8:25 $299 at Amazon Back in 2016, before the sixth season began, a similar application by students from the same university predicted Tommen Baratheon, Stannis Baratheon, Daenerys, Davos Seaworth and Petyr Baelish would all perish. Three out of five (so far) isn’t bad. It also cast a suspicious eye on Jon Snow’s death at the end of season five, reasoning that such an event was statistically improbable. We all know how that turned out.The games begin again, for the last time, this Sunday as the final season of Game of Thrones airs on HBO.

UN Nearly 1 Billion Needed Now to Stop Ebola

By on September 1, 2019

first_imgGENEVA (AP) — The number of Ebola cases could start doubling every three weeks in West Africa, the World Health Organization said Tuesday, warning that the outbreak will cost nearly $1 billion to contain so it does not turn into a “human catastrophe.”Bruce Aylward, left, Assistant Director-General of the World Health Organization, WHO, is sitting next to British Valerie Amos, right, United Nations Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, as he holds a report on Ebola virus during a press conference about of the response on global aid pledged to fight the Ebola outbreak in west Africa, at the European headquarters of the United Nations in Geneva, Switzerland, Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014. (AP Photo/Keystone, Salvatore Di Nolfi)Even as President Barack Obama is ordering the deployment of 3,000 U.S. military personnel to help provide aid in the region, Doctors Without Borders said the global response to Ebola has been far short of what is needed.“The response to Ebola continues to fall dangerously behind,” Dr. Joanne Liu, president of the medical charity, told a U.N. special briefing on Ebola in Geneva. “The window of opportunity to contain this outbreak is closing. We need more countries to stand up, we need greater deployment, and we need it now.”Dr. Bruce Aylward, WHO’s assistant director-general, said Tuesday that “this health crisis we face is unparalleled in modern times.”The numbers are staggering: At least 2,400 deaths have been blamed on the outbreak, which has touched Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Nigeria and Senegal since it was first recognized in March.Half of the nearly 5,000 cases occurred in the last three weeks, and officials said Tuesday that it was not unthinkable that 20,000 could become infected before the outbreak is over.“It’s a potential threat to global security if these countries break down,” Obama said, speaking of the hardest-hit countries of Liberia, Sierra Leone and Guinea“If the outbreak is not stopped now, we could be looking at hundreds of thousands of people affected, with profound economic, political and security implications for all of us,” he said after outlining new steps being taken by the U.S. to contain the outbreak.In addition to the troop deployment, the heightened U.S. role in West Africa will include erecting new treatment and isolation facilities, training health care workers and boosting communications and transportation support, U.S. officials said in Washington.Health workers in protective gear after they moved the body of a person on to the back of a truck as they suspect she dyed form the Ebola virus in Monrovia, Liberia, Tuesday, Sept. 16, 2014. The number of Ebola cases in West Africa could start doubling every three weeks and it could end up costing nearly $1 billion to contain the crisis, the World Health Organization warned Tuesday. (AP Photo/Abbas Dulleh)Hundreds more international health workers will likely be required. Some 3.3 million hazard suits will be needed in the next six months to protect those caretakers from the virus, which is spread by contact with bodily fluids such as blood, urine or diarrhea. Some $23.8 million alone will pay burial teams and buy body bags, since the bodies of Ebola victims are highly infectious.In a report released Tuesday, WHO said all of this and more will cost $987.8 million. That’s 10 times what the organization estimated the outbreak would cost at the beginning of August.“We risk a humanitarian catastrophe if we do not see rapid action to scale up, not just the Ebola response but also the provision of essential services and the support platform to put that in place,” Aylward said.Recent weeks have seen a flurry of promises of aid.In addition to the U.S. forces, the U.N. health agency said China has promised to send a 59-person mobile laboratory team to Sierra Leone that includes lab experts, epidemiologists, doctors and nurses. Britain is planning to build and operate an Ebola clinic in Sierra Leone, and Cuba has promised to send the country more than 160 health workers.“The question is translating these commitments into quick action on the ground,” said Dr. Unni Krishnan, head of disaster preparedness and response for the aid group Plan International.Still, hospitals and clinics in West Africa are now turning the sick away because they don’t have enough space to treat everyone — a sure-fire way to increase the spread of the disease, which in this outbreak is killing about half of those it infects.The United States, in particular, drew criticism last week when it promised to set up a 25-bed field hospital in Liberia to serve health care workers, both local and foreign, who become infected. Many thought the contribution was paltry, given that experts were saying Liberia needed at least 500 more treatment beds.___Larson reported from Dakar, Senegal.

Standardized battery wants to appeal to all gadgets

By on August 31, 2019

first_img Citation: Standardized battery wants to appeal to all gadgets (2008, February 29) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2008-02-standardized-battery-appeal-gadgets.html The Green Cell concept would provide a standard battery for every cell phone and personal electronic device. Organic solar cells that last 10 years in space That’s the idea from Theo Richardson, Charles Brill, and Alex Williams of Rich, Brilliant, Willing. Their standardized battery concept, called the Green Cell, won third place at the recent Greener Gadgets Competition. Most importantly, the Green Cell isn´t made from toxic chemicals and could be partially recycled to reduce landfill waste. The designers say that the battery could either be recharged from home or at public charge stations. When the batteries eventually wear out, they could be exchanged for a fresh battery at a local vending machine that doubles as a recycling center. Every time you buy a new gadget or upgrade your cell phone, you wouldn’t have to toss out your old charger and battery, but could simply reuse them with your new device. Currently, manufacturers use different batteries and chargers for just about every make and model of phone and personal electronic device. Manufacturers may not be overly excited about configuring every gadget to the size and voltage of the standardized Green Cell. But, the Green Cell designers say that the benefits could help everyone.”Agreeing to adopt a handful of constraints doesn’t hurt one’s marketing campaign; rather, it’s a new opportunity for a new business model,” they explain. “It´s a more responsible approach, and we’ll all live a little more happily ever after.”Rich, Brilliant, Willing suggested another interesting idea at the Greener Gadgets Competition: “nutrition” labels for gadgets. The standardized label would disclose all the material contents of the gadget, including the amounts of heavy metals used. They hope that the label would provide the public with the knowledge to make greener purchases and encourage manufacturers to use healthier manufacturing processes and materials.More information: Rich, Brilliant, Willingvia: Inhabitat All plug-in electronics use the same power cord, and all battery-operated devices use one of a few standard sizes. Even computer accessories mostly all have USB capabilities. So why not standardize rechargeable batteries for all cell phones and other mobile gadgets?

HC asks Dilip to produce documents of qualification

By on

first_imgKolkata: The Calcutta High Court on Thursday directed BJP state president Dilip Ghosh to produce documents in connection with his educational qualification. The directions came in the wake of a PIL by petitioner Ashok Sarkar in May last year.The petitioner had alleged that Ghosh had submitted a false affidavit while contesting the 2016 state elections from Kharagpur, claiming that he was an alumnus of Jhargram Polytechnic College. He had also submitted a purported RTI report, saying there was no such college in the state. He had pleaded for Ghosh’s election from the Kharagpur Sadar seat to be nullified. A division bench headed by Chief Justice Jyotirmoy Bhattacharjee, asked the state BJP president to file an affidavit, along with his original academic certificates, in June. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsAdvocate Mohammad Ariff, who represented the petitioner at the court, said that Ghosh had been claiming that he had passed out from Ishwarchandra Polytechnic at Kharagpur. “But when my client approached the college through another RTI application, he was informed that between 1975 and 1990, no Dilip Ghosh had appeared in any exam in the college,” he maintained. It may be mentioned that Ghosh was elected to the West Bengal Assembly in 2016, from the Kharagpur Sadar constituency. The Chief Justice wondered on Thursday: “Is it believable that a person has forgotten the name of the institution from which he had passed out?” The matter has been scheduled for hearing on June 8.last_img read more
