UN unparalleled in ability to solve major global problems Russian leader says

“The creation of the UN has become one of the main achievements of the world community in the 20th century,” Mr. Medvedev said at the annual high-level debate.Characterizing the financial turmoil as the “first wide-scale crisis of the globalization era,” he said that reforming the current system of global economic governance was one of many problems that cannot be solved without the UN, “a time-tested mechanism of harmonization of interests of different countries.”That crisis has dealt a blow to efforts to alleviate poverty, with all countries having experienced a drop in output, the President noted. “A real threat of disruption of the Millennium Development Goals [MDGs] has manifested itself,” he said, referring to the eight anti-poverty targets with a 2015 deadline.Multilateral disarmament must also move forward under the auspices of the UN, he said, in light of recent positive developments on that front, including the recent agreement between Russia and the United States to cut their arsenals.To reach a common understanding on issues such as nuclear weapons proliferation, “we must engage all nations and influential international organizations” into negotiation processes,” according to Mr. Medvedev.In his address to dozens of heads of State and government, the Russian leader said the use of force can only exacerbate regional conflicts.“This was demonstrated by a reckless attempt of the Georgian authorities to resolve the problems in their relations with South Ossetia by military means” last August, he said, with the situation almost mushrooming into a full-scale war.“I am certain that this is understood by everyone and in order to avoid repetition of such developments we need to have clear and effective mechanisms to implement the principle of indivisibility of security,” Mr. Medvedev said, stressing that ensuring global security is one of the most pressing topics faced by the world today.“We have no right to forget that the UN possesses a unique international legitimacy,” he stated. “And we must preserve and strengthen this shared wealth of the peoples of the world.” 23 September 2009The current global challenges – ranging from conflicts to climate change – have demonstrated the need for collective international action, Russian President Dmitry Medvedev told the General Assembly today, stressing that there is no alternative to the United Nations in bringing together the interests of the world’s countries. read more

The Latest France halts Brazil trade deal over Amazon fires

PARIS — The Latest on the reaction to the fires in the Amazon (all times local):2:30 p.m.In a sharp escalation of tensions with Brazil, France is accusing President Jair Bolsonaroof having lied to French leader Emmanuel Macron and says it now opposes a trade deal with the South American bloc Mercosur because of his environmental back-peddling.A statement from the Elysee Palace accused Bolsonaro of failing to respect his “commitments on the climate” and of failing to protect biodiversity and said that Macron “can only note that President Bolsonaro lied to him.”The angry language follows a spat on Twitter between the two leaders, after Macron angered Bolsonaro by calling on G-7 nations to act for the Amazon being ravaged by wildfires.___9:35 a.m.Rarely have French President Emmanuel Macron and superstar soccer players including Cristiano Ronaldo been on the same page, but when it comes to the fires that are devastating the Amazon, they’re uniting in sounding the alarm.Five-time world player of the year Ronaldo beat Macron to the punch with his tweet urging action on the Amazon that, by Friday morning, had already racked up more than a quarter-million likes.Ronaldo tweeted “the Amazon Rainforest produces more than 20% of the world’s oxygen and it’s been burning for the past 3 weeks. It’s our responsibility to help to save our planet.”Macron’s tweet later was similarly urgent, saying “Our house is burning. Literally.” Macron put the Amazon fires on the agenda for the G-7 summit of world leaders that France is hosting this weekend.The Associated Press read more


On World Blood Donor Day UN appeals for safe blood to save

World Blood Donor Day provides a yearly opportunity to highlight the lifesaving role of voluntary unpaid blood donors and also to thank those donors who give this precious gift to save millions of lives every year. This year’s theme, ‘Safe Blood for Saving Mothers,’ aims to increase awareness on how timely access to safe blood and blood products is essential for all countries as part of a comprehensive approach to prevent maternal deaths. “When a new mother dies, not only does her baby face greater risk of death, malnourishment and lifelong disadvantage, but the whole family’s wellbeing is affected,” says Dr. Margaret Chan, Director-General of the UN World Health Organization (WHO) in her remarks on the Day.According to WHO, severe bleeding during pregnancy, delivery or after childbirth is the single biggest cause of maternal death and can kill a healthy woman within 2 hours if she is unattended. Urgent access to safe supplies of blood for transfusion is critical to saving these women’s lives.“If all obstetric facilities provided safe blood for transfusion, many of these mothers’ lives could be saved,” adds Ms. Chan.The global event for this year’s day will be held in the city of Colombo in Sri Lanka, which has successfully reached a self-sufficient blood supply within the last decade, a great role model for those countries unable to provide clean blood and still highly depended on foreign supplies.Donated blood is collected every year from around 108 million units around the world. However, nearly half of these donations are only from high-income countries. A resolution adopted by the World Health Assembly in 2010 stressed the importance of campaigning for a secure supply of safe blood based on local voluntary blood donation, where safest source of blood is believed to be from regular, voluntary unpaid donors whose blood is screened for infections.WHO has recently called all countries to receive their entire blood supply from voluntary unpaid donors by 2020 and it has encouraged them, and their national and international partners, to work on blood transfusion and maternal health to develop an activity plan to highlight the need for timely access to safe blood. The campaign also promotes the screening for HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C and syphilis of all donated blood prior to transfusion. What has emerged, however, is that in many countries, testing is often not reliable because of irregular supply of test kits, staff shortages, poor quality test kits, or lack of basic quality in laboratories.Moreover, WHO says that some 25 countries are not able to screen all donated blood for one or more of these infections, showing how the need for timely access to safe blood and blood products in the prevention of maternal deaths is a major priority.In countries like the Sub-Saharan Africa, which has the highest maternal mortality rate in the world and the lowest blood donation rate, the blood collected is likely to cover only less then half demand.According to Dr. Edward Kelly, Director of Service Delivery and Safety at WHO, today access to safe blood remains indeed a major issue to be overcome. He suggested that “safe blood transfusion is one of the key life-saving interventions that should be available in all facilities that provide emergency obstetric care.” read more


Elite Prospects Like Ben Simmons Almost Never Miss The Tournament

The crew of prospects Simmons will join if LSU fails to make the tournament isn’t exactly bad — even Steph Curry ended his Davidson career in the NIT, after all. (Granted, Davidson in the Southern Conference and LSU in the Southeastern Conference are apples and oranges; perhaps a better comp for Simmons is Chris Bosh, who couldn’t elevate Georgia Tech into the tournament out of the ACC in 2002-03.) But the distribution of basketball talent is steep. Top draft picks are, on average, so much better than their peers that a No. 1-ranked prospect should probably be held to a higher standard than the rest of the top five.And, sure enough, in the 15 years before Simmons only one No. 1 prospect was on a team that missed the NCAA Tournament: Nerlens Noel, in 2012-13. The other 92 percent of No. 1s at least got to the round of 64, and even Noel’s case comes with a huge asterisk. Before Noel was lost for the season with a knee injury, his Kentucky team was on the bubble at 17-6, but improving; afterward, the Wildcats closed out the season 4-5 and stamped a nonrefundable ticket to the NIT. The rest of the No. 1s went far — and I mean really far. Half went to the Final Four, and a third went to the national title game. They didn’t do it alone, though. Shane Battier, Anthony Davis and Greg Oden, for instance, generated almost exactly 25 percent of their teams’ win shares when they blazed a path to the championship game. Simmons has been a bit less productive than that trio on a per-minute basis, but he’s also generated 33 percent of LSU’s win shares this season, with his teammates creating roughly 45 percent fewer wins per game than those of Battier, Davis and Oden. If Simmons had anything close to their supporting casts, LSU probably wouldn’t be fretting about Selection Sunday.Instead, we’ll probably be left with a March Madness that doesn’t feature the nation’s best NBA prospect. That isn’t unprecedented, but it is pretty rare — and, mainly, it’s a bummer because Simmons is such an electrifying all-around talent in a sport that needs all the excitement it can get. LSU’s Ben Simmons is a ludicrously versatile basketball prodigy whose freshman numbers already compare favorably with greats of the past. He’ll probably go first overall in this summer’s NBA draft, and deservedly so. But for all of Simmons’s brilliance, his Tigers aren’t very good — they rank 75th in Ken Pomeroy’s ratings, and at 18-12 they’re a long shot to make the NCAA Tournament.This pairing of an exceptional individual and an unremarkable team is pretty rare. When a team has a prospect as good as Simmons, it doesn’t usually lose before the second weekend of the tourney, much less miss the field entirely. To measure this, I gathered ESPN’s prospect rankings for collegiate players from 2001 through last season, tracking how far their teams went in the postseason during their final NCAA season. Among top-five prospects in that span — and Simmons ranks No. 1 this year — 87 percent were on teams that made the NCAA Tournament, with about half going as far as the Elite Eight before losing. read more


Steven Gerrard really hates plastic pitches

first_imgThe Rangers manager believes artificial pitches should not be part of the highest level of football in any part of the world.Rangers coach Steven Gerrard has said constantly that he hates plastic pitches.But his criticism of that type of field is back once again, as Rangers prepare a visit to Kilmarnock this Wednesday.“I’ve already given my opinion on plastic pitches at the elite level of football and they should be nowhere to be seen,” Gerrard told the BBC.“I can’t change that in 24 hours. I do know that every single manager at this level doesn’t want plastic pitches.”“But we have to respect the fact that Kilmarnock have got one and we have to go there and perform,” he added.“We’ve been there and done it before. Of course, it cost us Jamie Murphy, which was a huge blow.”Steven Gerrard, Michael OwenOwen reveals why Liverpool didn’t offer Gerrard a new contract Manuel R. Medina – September 6, 2019 According to Owen, the Reds wanted to sell Gerrard two years before he left the club and that’s why they didn’t offer him a contract renewal.“Hopefully both sets of players come through the game healthy because there’s nothing worse than seeing any player suffer that type of injury,” Gerrard commented.Rugby Park is the home of Kilmarnock FC, the stadium was opened in August 1st, 1899.The place was renovated in 1946, 1961 and once again in the 1994-1995 season.The stadium used to have a natural grass pitch until the summer of 2014 when an artificial surface was installed.“They are breathing down our neck and have done very, very well.”“Steve Clarke has done an amazing job there so, from my point of view, I am very excited to see the team play,” the manager concluded.last_img read more

Moving Beyond the Click to Define Success with Brand Advertising

first_imgIn recent years, online publishers have transformed the Internet into a richer, more diversified platform offering entertainment, information, communication and other remarkable content that would have been unimaginable only two decades ago. Yet, as rapidly as the Internet has grown as a consumer medium, it has not kept pace as an advertising platform. Considering the number of hours that consumers spend engaged with high-quality online content, the Internet‘s share of advertiser dollars is far lower than it should be. One of the obstacles we face in attracting additional brand advertising is the Internet’s legacy as a direct response, transactional medium. As a fledgling industry, we convinced advertisers that the Internet was a superior advertising platform because consumers could click on banner ads and buy a product directly. The early income stream from banner ads was essential to the financial health of many pioneering websites. But our success as a transaction-based medium has limited us when it came to attracting brand advertising dollars. Simply put, many of the world’s largest marketers do not engage in direct response advertising online. Categories such as CPG, Entertainment, Financial Services, Auto and Healthcare do not expect an immediate return on an ad. For many, it’s about brand building – building an overall reputation of the brand and its products and, if successful, contributes to a consumer’s desire to be more loyal to that brand and buy their product the next day, the next week, or even the next year. Internet publishers have long recognized the challenge of attracting more brand advertising dollars. This is an important consumer issue because without increased revenue sources, publishers cannot continue to improve the consumer experience and increase their yield. But to attract new brand marketers, our industry needs innovative ad formats that drive brand engagement. Finding New Methods For an Old Game The IAB created the rising star competition to encourage the industry to create new standard ad units that would be embraced by brand marketers. AOL won 2 of the 6 awards in February 2011– out of 36 total submissions to the competition – and we are hopeful that these two formats will soon be adopted into the standard set of IAB ad units. The right side of the page (where the ad is located) should be as compelling and rich as the content of the left side of the page (where the editorial content is). New advertising formats accomplish this by making it easy for advertisers to repurpose their existing high-quality brand assets (including video commercials, still photography, etc.) for use in their online advertising campaigns. Major marketers spend millions of dollars a year creating amazing brand content, and premium formats allow them to easily convert this content into their online brand campaigns.A few weeks ago at the Cannes Lions International Advertising Festival, the industry saw results from a six-week study performed in the UK by IPG Media Lab on one of our award-winning formats – the IAB Portrait ad unit. IPG found that IAB Portrait, a 300 X 1050 unit that permits advertisers to use high-quality ads, performed much better against traditional display advertising.Not surprisingly, more interactive, integrated and visually beautiful ads are more effective than standard ads. Specifically, the study revealed that interactive, premium content makes people notice advertisements more frequently than static ads, which create “banner blindness.” The interactive units attracted 81 percent more attention than static units. The study also found that consumers spend an average of 47 seconds more with an IAB Portrait ad than they would with industry-standard rich media banners. They also play 24 seconds more of premium video. As such, the results we are seeing mimic the level of activity found on advertiser websites. In terms of attitudinal results, the IPG study found that the IAB Portrait unit saw improvement at every step of the marketing funnel from dramatically increased awareness to brand appeal to recommending to friends. At the very bottom of the funnel, consumers’ purchase intent after viewing these unit increased by 263 percent. Of course any advertisement that can compel a consumer to engage with it for more than 47 seconds comes at a premium CPM. Yet chances are that no matter how effectively we do our jobs as advocates for online brand advertising, we will never be able to maximize the value of our inventory as long as we continue to use clicks as our primary metric to gauge the success of a campaign.There are numerous problems with using clicks as the metric to determine if a brand campaign was successful. Among other issues, the most desirable high-income consumers simply do not click. Further, consumers consistently say they don’t want to be distracted away from the content on the page and they feel that clickable ads take them away from the page. They also feel that these ads are neither engaging nor interesting. Our challenge as an industry, then, is for publishers to not only begin to adopt and deploy these new premium formats, but for the industry to identify a metric that can replace click-through rates to help define success. The Internet is still in its early development stage as a communications medium and it will only grow in importance and value in the years ahead. Nevertheless, we are at an important crossroads. If we are to continue to grow, we need to adopt premium advertising formats and develop new metrics that will convince major brand advertisers that online advertising is more effective and engaging as the same ad placed in the traditional off-line media.Greg Rogers is the co-founder and CEO of Pictela, a division of the AOL Advertising.com Group.

first_img September 24, 2013 – A shorter course of androgen suppression therapy prior to radiation therapy, when compared to a longer course of androgen suppression therapy, yields favorable outcomes and fewer adverse effects for intermediate-risk prostate cancer patients, according to research presented at the American Society for Radiation Oncology’s (ASTRO) 55th Annual Meeting. The study confirmed a disease-specific-survival (DSS) rate of 95 percent when patients received fewer weeks of neoadjuvant (NEO) total androgen suppression (TAS).The multi-institutional phase III trial, Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) 9910, evaluated 1,490 intermediate-risk prostate cancer (PCa) patients from 152 institutions in the United States and Canada. Patients were accrued from 2000 to 2004 and followed for an average of nine years, and the average age of the men was 71 at the time of accrual. The patients were stratified and randomized into two groups ? Group 1 consisted of 752 patients who received eight weeks of NEO TAS, and Group 2 consisted of 738 patients who received 28 weeks of NEO TAS. Both groups then received eight weeks of external beam radiation therapy (RT) and concurrent TAS.Cumulative incidence was used to estimate and test efficacy for DSS, prostate-specific antigen (PSA) failure, locoregional tumor progression and distant metastasis. Overall survival (OS) rates were estimated via the Kaplan-Meier method and efficacy tested with log rank. There were 30 PCa deaths in Group 1, for a 10-year DSS rate of 95 percent; and 24 PCa deaths in Group 2, for a 10-year DSS rate of 96 percent (no statistical difference). There were 200 additional deaths not attributable to PCa in Group 1 for a 10-year OS rate of 66 percent, and 196 such deaths in Group 2, for a 10-year OS rate of 67 percent. By 10 years, 27 percent of patients had a PSA failure (using the newer RTOG-ASTRO definition of nadir+2), 5 percent had PCa recurrence in the prostate (locoregional) and 6 percent had distant metastasis. Hot flashes and erectile dysfunction were more common in Group 2.“Sometimes, preliminary research leads us to assume that more treatment is better, but this study serves as a strong cautionary note to put the promising treatment to the test,” said Thomas Pisansky, M.D., lead author of the study and professor of radiation oncology at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn. “Overall, both groups had very, very good outcomes, but patients assigned to Group 2 had more side effects from androgen suppression than Group 1, who received only eight weeks of NEO TAS. Now, investigators know the upper boundary of how much androgen suppression is needed in this group of patients. The results have substantial importance because they can alter the research strategy to one in which investigation can now concentrate on ways to simplify the treatment and further reduce side effects.”The abstract, “Radiation Therapy Oncology Group 9910: Phase III Trial to Evaluate the Duration of Neoadjuvant (NEO) Total Androgen Suppression (TAS) and Radiation Therapy (RT) in Intermediate-Risk Prostate Cancer (PCa),” was presented in detail during the plenary session at ASTRO’s 55th Annual Meeting Sept. 23.For more information: www.astro.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

How Costa Ricas 2018 elections moved from street to screen

first_imgThe researcher says these trends demand “better understanding of what truly is happening in these contexts and how much can be extracted in the form of teachings.“Its indispensable information… I have no doubt that there’s a relationship between how people behave [online] and what happened on [Feb. 4]. There’s a relationship there and it’s something we should be watching with all our knowledge,” he concluded.Through mid-January, social media data had already shown that the two candidates who would win a ticket into the second round, Fabricio Alvarado (PRN) and Carlos Alvarado (PAC), showed greater levels of engagement; however, the researcher says that this only is part of the data that has to be analyzed to fully understand what took place.Ignacio Siles is a professor at the Collective Communication Science School (ECCC) at the University of Costa Rica (UCR), where he graduated before specializing in Society and Technology at the University of Montreal and Northwestern University.This article was originally published by Semanario Universidad on Feb. 6 by journalist Josué Alfaro.

Fabricio Alvarado’s (PRN) interaction on Facebook registered the highest levels of the campaign after the same-sex marriage ruling in January. Courtesy of Miriet Ábrego / Semanario UniversidadIn the words of the researcher Ignacio Siles, a specialist in society and technology, social media now play fundamental roles in Costa Rica’s “expression of political opinion and collective action.”Contrary to popular belief, Siles says that social media have worked as a meeting space and not only as “echo chambers,” given that online interaction in Costa Rica has allowed for debate and disagreements, not just the simple confirmation of opinions.“More and more, throughout the campaign, we had the evolution of people participating in spaces where an opinion contrary to theirs was expressed,” said Siles. He added that he sees this point as particularly important because it could demonstrate the virtual exchange is happening at an even higher rate than we imagine.He pointed out the power that these media had to position the debate topics that possibly defined the elections. Semanario Universidad registered such an occurrence in mid-January, when there was an explosion on social media after Fabricio Alvarado, from the National Restoration Party (PRN), opposed the international court ruling on same-sex couples and gender identities.He also pointed out role played by the case of the Chinese cement at the beginning of the campaign, when discussion of corruption and mano dura law-and-order policies boosted the first debates.“The ‘cementazo’ at the very beginning of the elections and the Court’s ruling in January were two great media milestones that were converted into triggers of online interaction with very evident consequences,” Siles said.Informed vote?Another trend noted by Siles is the participation of voters who did not inform themselves,  or at least “not more than the usual.”The data collected by Cicom and its researches suggest that the clicks on political news were few and far between on social media, even reaching lower points to non-electoral periods. Siles points out the important role played by other types of information such as videos, images and informal messages that were indirectly fed by the coverage.“Social media played a very interesting role, and possibly very controversial, boosting topics that did not necessarily come from mass media, but were articulated as part of an informal agenda that gave color to the elections,” Siles said. “The message flux, of memes and similar types of communications circulated not only in technological networks, but also from person to person.”Virtual GroupsFor Siles, candidate support and rejections, as well as hugs and insults, have passed into the virtual realm – whether uses were “placing a profile picture that identifies you with a candidate, fighting in the comments, or sending a meme… convincing themselves, convincing others, in a context where you have very marked spaces with the group of people you try to influence.”He pointed out that party flags were barely seen on the streets, but were “[seen] much more on Facebook, especially from January until the elections.” How Juan Diego Castro is turning Costa Rica upside downlast_img read more

WAs Walpole is Australias favourite Tidy Town

first_imgSource = Walpole Tourist Bureau A small town in Western Australia has proven size doesn’t matter after taking out top honours in the first Tidy Towns People’s Choice Award.  With a population of just 321, Walpole located on the WA coast attracted more votes per capita than any town in the new national competition and the prize of a $10,000 grant towards a community project. Over 5,000 votes have poured into the site since Australia’s favourite GPS brand Navman launched the competition with Keep Australia Beautiful’s Tidy Towns.   The competition complements the official Tidy Towns awards that have been running in Australia for over 40 years and asked people to say why others should visit the town.  Other towns in the top five of ‘Australia’s most loved’ were Dartmoor, in Victoria; Hastings Point, NSW; Lockhart, NSW and Bincheno in Tasmania.Walpole has also been successful in the official Tidy Towns competition, having taken out the state title in 2007. When asked how a little town of 321 people managed to get a whopping 1,026 votes, Dave Tapley, councilor and chair of Tidy Towns Committee, Walpole said, “That’s Walpole, mate. Something like this just pulled everyone together. Everyone in the town voted and we tapped into our network of friends and families in other areas.”Extremely town proud and no strangers to extraordinary feats of effort – town volunteers clean 104 kilometres of highway weekly – the town went the extra mile to win the competition.  Volunteers created a “how to vote” form and stood in rain and sunshine at popular local tourist sites asking people to vote, averaging about 30 votes a day.  An obstacle they had to overcome was that not everyone had computers or internet access, so the town turned to its computer expert, 86 year old Geordie Whitwell. Geordie set up a computer on site where people could register their votes. “We really wanted to win to put our town on the map, so the community got organised and we gave it our all.  It was almost like a military operation – we were even monitoring the votes of other towns in the competition,” said Michael Filby, community volunteer, winner of the individual award at the Australian Tidy Towns Awards. Walpole will put the $10,000 prize money towards building a fish cleaning station as the town is surrounded by fishing grounds and is popular with recreational fishers.  Wendy Hammond, marketing director, Navman, who was responsible for setting up the competition with Keep Australia Beautiful said, “We really wanted to give towns all over the country -both large and small – the chance to put themselves on the map, and to encourage people to get out on the road and discover more of our country and put valuable tourism dollars into the local economy. “Even though only one town could win, the Navman People’s Choice award has demonstrated the amazing community spirit in our country. Thousands of Australians including councils, tourism bodies, Tidy Towns committees and everyday punters showed strong support for their most loved town by submitting incredible images, fascinating facts and insider secrets about their favourite town. We were extremely pleased with how successful and well received the competition was,” she said.Scott Lyall, Executive Officer of Keep Australia Beautiful added, “We are thrilled with the results of the first Navman People’s Choice promotion.  So many towns and individuals from around the country took part and helped remind us of why we should visit their special part of Australia.  It was good to see some familiar, and not so familiar, names take part. But there can only be one winner and we congratulate Walpole, WA.”Walpole, located 420 km South of Perth on the coast of Western Australia, only has a tiny population but was the clear winner out of the 200 towns nominated for the award. The town offers the impressive ‘valley of the giants’ tree top walk amongst massive tingle and karri trees as well as amazing rivers, beaches and incredible views of Mount Frankland. More importantly Walpole has a very passionate and dedicated local community.  Now that the award is over Navman also want to remind Australians they can continue supporting regional Australia by getting in the car and visiting these wonderful towns. Over 200 towns were nominated in this year’s competition and images and descriptions can be found on the website.The winner of the People’s Choice Award was calculated based on per head of population. Unlike the official and iconic Tidy Towns Award which is chosen by judges who visit certain regions, the Navman People’s Choice Award, allowed everyone to pick their favourite town.  Ten people who voted in the competition will also soon be receiving a brand new Navman GPS.last_img read more
