Dozens of people were injured in the three days of clashes that rocked the city of Rosarno. Some 1,000 migrants, most of whom are reportedly from Africa, were moved to migration centres, with authorities moving to deport many of them.“Violence, be it perpetrated by Italians or migrant workers, must be addressed in the most vigorous manner through the rule of law and human rights should always be protected, regardless of immigration laws,” Jorge Bustamante and Githu Muigai, the UN Special Rapporteurs on the human rights of migrants and on contemporary forms of racism, respectively, said in a joint statement.They called on the Italian Government to demonstrate their continued and firm commitment to create a safe and peaceful environment for all.“This includes finding ways to improve the very poor living and working conditions of these migrant workers – [some] of whom are often trafficked into the country for exploitation purposes – and to implement an immigration policy in full conformity with international human rights standards.”Although Italy’s initial steps towards an inquiry into the unrest are a welcome move, the experts underscored that “it is more than ever urgent” for authorities to bolster their anti-racism efforts, provide human rights education, denounce hate speech and prosecute racist and violent actions.“Violence cannot and must never be a means to respond to difficulties under any circumstances,” the Special Rapporteurs underscored. 12 January 2010In the wake of last week’s unrest in southern Italy, two United Nations independent human rights experts today called on the European nation’s Government to rein in the rising xenophobic attitudes towards migrant workers. read more

Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOn Nov. 4, Ohio State seemed to have been eliminated from College Football Playoff contention. No two-loss team had ever made the playoff and the Buckeyes didn’t just lose their second game of the year — they were demolished 55-24 by Iowa.But chaos reigned. Notre Dame, Alabama, TCU, Miami (Fla.), Washington and Georgia lost in the following weeks. In a wild twist of fate, Ohio State re-entered the discussion for a playoff spot. Last week, playoff committee chair Kirby Hocutt said there was “very little separation” between then-No. 5 Alabama and then-No. 8 Ohio State.The Buckeyes made their final statement Saturday by handing No. 4 Wisconsin its only loss of the season, defeating the Badgers 27-21 in the Big Ten championship game. But less than 24 hours after the team celebrated amid confetti and thousands of scarlet-and-gray-clad fans, the joy turned to despair.Ohio State senior linebacker Chris Worley (35) talks to the Buckeye defense in the third quarter of the B1G Championship game against Wisconsin on Dec. 2 in Lucas Oil Stadium. Ohio State won 27-21. Credit: Alyssia Graves | Assistant Sports DirectorAfter a painfully long lead-up to the reveal on the playoff selection show, the Crimson Tide logo popped up in the No. 4 spot, leaving Ohio State on the outside looking in.“You’re definitely devastated,” redshirt senior linebacker Chris Worley said. “Whenever you have so many guys, internally, as a man, that you know, that you put so much work in, you’re so invested. If you’re not devastated then you probably didn’t put the work in.”The selection will sting, redshirt senior quarterback J.T. Barrett said, especially since he believes his team is one of the best four in the country. But he said the Buckeyes did what they could down the stretch; it just turned out it did not impress the committee enough to pick them instead of Alabama.Ohio State’s dreams of a playoff never would have existed without other teams’ help. They were resuscitated due to team after team playing themselves out of the playoff. But that allowed players, coaches and fans to regain hope, only to have it crushed again despite finishing the season with wins against Michigan State, Michigan and Wisconsin.Head coach Urban Meyer was far from pleased at a press conference less than three hours after the announcement that his team would not be competing in the playoff in back-to-back seasons. He said he sunk into his chair while watching on TV because he thought his team would make the cut. But Meyer also was not devastated, as Worley said he felt. The weight of uncertainty seemed to have been lifted off him. Meyer said the younger version of himself would struggle to eat and sleep, but he has learned to move on from such disappointments.For Ohio State, moving on means redirecting its focus winning the Big Ten — a goal which it completed on Saturday — to a game against USC in the Cotton Bowl, a consolation prize for a team that expects to be in the playoff each and every year.J.T. Barrett looks up into the Buckeye crowd following Ohio State’s 27-21 win over Wisconsin in the B1G championship on Dec. 2. in Lucas Oil stadium. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorThe Trojans present an intriguing matchup, one that will include quarterback Sam Darnold, who is a projected early first-round NFL draft pick; running back Ronald Jones, who has 1,486 yards on a 6.1-yards-per-carry average, and four defenders who each has at least six sacks. The Buckeyes have not beaten the Trojans in the past seven matchups, dating back to 1974 when Meyer was just 9 years old. “That’s a traditionally rich program right there. Just like Ohio State,” Worley said. “They’ve had some crazy guys come through there. And I actually remember the battles when I was younger and just watching them play, watching some of the guys that I know playing in those games and things like that. It’s going to be fun.”The playoff was always an attainable goal and, given how veteran this group of players is, not reaching it could be viewed as a failure. The Buckeyes obviously had bigger plans, which Meyer understands.“You have to understand they’re not kind of disappointed,” Meyer said. “They’re probably devastated.”He thought his team was in the playoff. But he said he stared at the TV and stopped thinking about what could have been, and turned his attention to the bowl game.“There’s a group of players now that really deserve that opportunity,” Meyer said. “And that’s what I thought about.”They won’t get the ultimate prize of a national championship, but Meyer wants Ohio State’s 19 seniors to be sent off with a win and trophies. That began with winning a Big Ten championship Saturday night and will continue with a chance to end the streak and defeat Darnold and the Trojans in Dallas on Dec. 29. read more

Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Oct 29th 2016, 7:00 AM By AFP 21,658 Views Image: Shutterstock/kikovic 16 Comments Share62 Tweet Email7 https://jrnl.ie/3043195 TO REDUCE THE risk of sudden death, babies should sleep in the same room as their parents but in their own crib or bassinet for the first year of life, according to US doctors.The new policy statement by the American Academy of Pediatrics still says babies should sleep on their backs, on a clean surface free of toys and blankets, a guideline that has been in place since the 1990s and has reduced sudden infant deaths by about 50%.Still, some 3,500 infants die each year in the United States from sleep-related deaths, including sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and accidental suffocation and strangulation.The main change to the AAP guidelines, which were last issued in 2011, is the specific call for infants to stay in their parents’ room for six months to a year if possible – but not sleep in the same bed.“Parents should never place the baby on a sofa, couch, or cushioned chair, either alone or sleeping with another person,” said lead author Rachel Moon. Image: Shutterstock/kikovic We know that these surfaces are extremely hazardous.‘One never forgets’Experts say that urging parents to put babies to sleep on their backs instead of their bellies helped drive down the rate of sudden infant death from 120 deaths per 100,000 live births in 1992 to 56 deaths per 100,000 in 2001 – a 53% reduction in one decade. That advice still stands.Deaths from SIDS have plateaued in recent years, but it is still the leading killer of babies aged one month to one year.Children may become entangled in bedding, or suffocate under bumpers or toys, get squeezed in the corner of a couch or armchair, get overheated, or simply stop breathing for no apparent reason.“It is nothing but tragic,” said Peter Richel, chief of the department of pediatrics at Northern Westchester Hospital, who remembers losing two patients in the past 26 years to sudden infant death – a four-month-old boy and a two-week-old girl.“Often there is nothing special to point to, other than they are just kind of taken away,” he said.It is something that one never forgets.Other risk factors for SIDS include smoking in the home, and exposing babies to drugs or alcohol.Richel said that the new policy means doctors will have to change some of their long-held advice.“Many pediatricians will suggest that by two months of age, infants go to their own room, and with the use of a monitor so that you can hear them cry out for a feeding,” said Richel.This really goes against that kind of usual advice, which is fine, because if it saves lives we are all for it.Latest dataThe new policy is described in a paper called, SIDS and Other Sleep-Related Infant Deaths: Updated 2016 Recommendations for a Safe Infant Sleeping Environment, and was presented this week at the AAP National Conference and Exhibition in San Francisco.“The most important thing to remember is that the crib should be free of all loose objects that could lead to strangulation or suffocation,” said Robert Glatter, an emergency physician at Lenox Hill Hospital, who was not involved in the research.This means that a bare environment is ultimately safest.The AAP policy also suggests placing newborn infants skin-to-skin with the mother “immediately following birth for at least an hour as soon as the mother is medically stable and awake.”Breastfeeding is recommended, but mothers are urged to move the baby to a separate sleeping space afterward.“If you are feeding your baby and think that there’s even the slightest possibility that you may fall asleep, feed your baby on your bed, rather than a sofa or cushioned chair,” said co-author Lori Feldman-Winter, a member of the Task Force on SIDS.“If you do fall asleep, as soon as you wake up be sure to move the baby to his or her own bed,” she said.The highest risk period for SIDS comes between the ages one to four months. SIDS is rare in babies older than eight months.Other strategies include offering a pacifier at nap time and bedtime, and making sure infants get all their recommended vaccines.Parents are warned against using expensive home monitoring systems, as well as wedges or positioners that may be marketed as reducing the risk of SIDS.“We know that we can keep a baby safer without spending a lot of money on home monitoring gadgets but through simple precautionary measures,” Moon said.- © AFP, 2016Read: 6 big questions about breastfeeding, answered by an expertRead: Is it safe to raise your child on a vegan diet?

Hundreds of supporters and detractors of President Donald Trump exchanged words, some very short and choppy, during a pro-Trump rally at Esther Short Park on Sunday afternoon, but the event was relatively calm compared to recent rallies and counter-protests held in the Portland metro area.Approximately 300 people, counting both sides, showed up at the rally, along with dozens of police officers. Many observers filed in and out of the downtown Vancouver park through the afternoon. The rally coincided with the farmers market.Save a few scuffles along the orange plastic mesh fence police set up around the rally area in the center of the park, and some tossed smoke bombs, the competing exercises in free speech didn’t climb to a level of rowdiness or acrimony seen at some other Trump rally counter-protests around the country.Joey Gibson, who helped organize the rally and an earlier, pre-election rally in Vancouver, said he thought things went relatively smooth.“The protesters were pretty well-behaved compared to other places. We appreciate that,” Gibson said. “Our people were pretty well-behaved. I didn’t see too much yelling and screaming going on, so that’s good.” read more

Twitter/BCCIIndian skipper Virat Kohli broke Sourav Ganguly’s captaincy record and is on the verge of surpassing Mahendra Singh Dhoni in Tests as well. The 30-year-old Indian skipper went past Ganguly’s away victory record in Tests as a captain of the Indian cricket team. He also drew level with former skipper Mahendra Singh Dhoni on the number of Test victories as the captain of the national team.Kohli achieved these milestones after India’s victory over West Indies. He has won 12 Tests from the 26 matches he has led abroad surpassing the previous record of Ganguly who had won 11 out of 28 matches he led.The current Indian skipper now has 27 Test wins which make him the most successful Indian captain ever along with Mahendra Singh Dhoni. The 30-year-old cricketer took 47 matches to achieve this feat whereas Dhoni did it in the 60 Test matches he led.The winning percentage of Kohli’s record is also superior to that of Dhoni and Ganguly as he won 55.31 percent of the matches in which he captained India whereas Dhoni and Ganguly have 45 percent and 42.85 percent respectively.The Indian skipper can easily go past the 38-year-old wicket-keeper batsman’s record and become the most successful captain for Team India in Test cricket in near future. Virat Kohli and MS Dhoni.Getty ImagesHe can actually achieve this feat in the ongoing Test series against West Indies as it looks pretty much certain going by Indian team’s current form.Is Kohli India’s best Test captain ever?He probably isn’t the best captain India ever had, as yet. Kohli started off well as the captain of the Indian cricket but in recent times India have faced defeat against England as they lost 4-1 in a Test series last year. Even though India defeated Australia abroad, that Aussie team were nowhere near the sides Dhoni and Ganguly led their team against.So, it is too early to state that he is the best just on the basis of the number of wins as many of those victories have come against weaker outfits of Australia and an England squad which were going through their transition period. Many of the victories also came against teams like Sri Lanka and West Indies who do not feature among the top-five teams in the ICC Test ranking. Team India after their historic win at Melbourne. Quinn Rooney/Getty ImagesTeam India beat West Indies by 318 runs in the first Test of the two-match series in Antigua. This victory was India’s biggest win in away Test matches in terms of runs.The West Indian team were bowled out for a mere 100 runs as Jasprit Bumrah registered a five-wicket haul on the fourth day of the fixture. Mohammad Shami and Ishant Sharma also contributed by picking up two wickets and three wickets respectively.India posted a total of 343 runs in their second innings with Ajinkya Rahane chipping in with a century and Hanuma Vihari narrowly missing out on a ton.The Men in Blue set a target of 419 runs for the host to chase. In reply, the Carribean team could not stand in front of the brutal bowling of Jasprit Bumrah who helped India win in a convincing manner. read more
Andrew Schneider/Houston Public MediaThe Harris County Commissioners Court voted to sue ITC over the fire at its Deer Park petrochemical facility during the meeting held on March 26, 2019. Listen 00:00 /00:53 Share The Harris County Commissioners Court voted unanimously on Tuesday to sue Intercontinental Terminals Company (ITC) for the massive fire and aftermath at its Deer Park petrochemical storage facility.The fire burned for most of last week, shut down class for over 100,000 students in the region and led to a breach in the dike wall that spilled toxic chemicals into the Houston Ship Channel. The company has received 300 written claims and 2,000 calls to its claims hotline.The Harris County Attorney’s Office will hire an in-house auditor to review ITC’s actions during and after the fire.“We’ll be requesting the appointment of what’s called a third-party auditor, who will come in and review all the actions of ITC in what led up to this event,” Robert Soard, First Assistant County Attorney told commissioners Tuesday. “We will also be seeking recovery on behalf of the county for all the costs incurred by the county itself.”Those costs include activating the county’s Office of Emergency Management; monitoring air and water quality; and deploying mobile clinics. But authorities haven’t released a cost estimate yet.Brent Weber, an executive with ITC, said during a news conference that the company will prevail using its insurance and “available financial resources.”Weber said the company remains focused on cleaning up the tanks damaged in the fire and repairing the ditches that were breached in the aftermath of the incident. They’re concentrating on cleaning up tanks that contain benzene.Response personnel are still foaming the tank farm as needed to maintain at least a 2-foot level of foam and pumping a mix of firefighting foam, water, and remaining product from the ditch using vacuum trucks and hoses.At commissioners court, people packed the meeting to testify about the fire and overflowed into a separate room. Jamie Lawson, with the Houston Climate Movement, said that she hoped the incident would help break what she called “a pattern of environmental racism” afflicting East Houston residents.Air quality monitoringOfficials with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality said the air quality monitoring hasn’t recorded dangerous readings of chemicals or other products in the last few hours.Harris County, the cities of Houston and Deer Park and ITC are also monitoring air quality.The TCEQ has updated information about the incident on this section of their website. Harris County also has air quality information posted online.TCEQ response coordinator, Jeff Kunze, said the agency is still monitoring surface water, but didn’t provide information about the analysis of the samples.EPA on-site coordinator Adam Adams said the situation is becoming “more stable and more secure every day.”However, Adams acknowledged there are pockets of oil on Tucker Bayou, Buffalo Bayou and the Houston Ship Channel. He said more than 33,000 barrels, the equivalent of 1.4 million gallons, of water mixed with product and firefighting foam had been recovered as of Tuesday morning.The responders are using booms to contain the oil and chemicals that have spilled on the waterways, including Buffalo and Tucker bayous.Benzene detected in waterHowever, independent water sample tests performed by the Galveston Bay Foundation found a high level of benzene in at least one sample taken from the Houston Ship Channel on Saturday.Bob Stokes, president of the Galveston Bay Foundation, told Houston Matters that it’s possible the dike breach on Friday at the facility caused the high level of benzene.“These were hopefully short-term spikes,” Stokes said. He added that benzene that’s on the water evaporates, so Stokes doesn’t think “there was a long-term exposure necessarily.”He also noted that the ship channel doesn’t supply any drinking water systems in the Houston region, so the benzene reading isn’t a concern for drinking water. But it’s not clear if the chemical will impact Galveston Bay.Stokes said another concern is the foam firefighters are using in Deer Park. The foam contains chemicals known as Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS), as reported by NPR.Houston Ship ChannelTraffic is still restricted on a section of the Houston Ship Channel. The Channel remains closed to traffic between Tucker Bayou and HSC Light 116 with the exception of coordinated vessel movement by the U.S. Coast Guard. The San Jacinto River is open for vessel traffic during daylight hours only.U.S. Coast Guard Lieutenant Commander Caren Damon said that the channel will be reopened when “we’ve determined that it is safe and there’s no visible product remaining in the waterway.”Harris County’s Office of Emergency Management said Tuesday there continues to be a “low health risk for the community.”The Ask-My-Nurse helpline remains open 8 a.m. to 8:30 p.m., 7 days a week to help answer health questions. The number is 713-634-1110.State environmental officials are reviewing ITC’s plan to dispose of the waste generated by the fire, while the Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office and the U.S. Chemical Safety Board are investigating the incident.The State of Texas announced last week it is also suing ITC for violations of the Texas Clean Air Act.The Texas Department of State Health Services recommends not to eat fish from the upper Houston Ship Channel. The fish consumption advisory has been in effect for most of the upper ship channel since 2013. To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: X read more

New finds including stone tools, pictographs, jewellery and animal feed have been uncovered during the latest excavations at a Neolithic site in the Troodos mountains by a research team from the department of history and archaeology at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki (AUT).The Rhoudias site is situated in the south foothills of Troodos near the Xeros River in the Paphos District and the project comes under the direction of Professor Nikolaos Efstratiou from AUT, an announcement said.The new finds were discovered some metres away from an earlier hunter-gatherer settlement named Ayios Ioannis/Brescia-Rhoudias, which has been excavated by the same archaeological team for a number of years.The new location has been named Ayios Ioannis/Brescia-Ano Rhoudias and according to the initial evidence, was an agricultural settlement, “the extent and exact nature of which is still under investigation,” the antiquities department said.“This new evidence confirms that the mountainous hinterland of Cyprus is equally important to the research interests as the lowlands and mainly coastal areas as far as the early prehistory of the island is concerned,” it added.“It should be noted that stone tools and vases found in the wider area had preceded the archaeological research, confirming the estimation of the archaeologists that in the early prehistoric years, Troodos was not an area of exclusively seasonal and marginal activities, such as hunting, but also had a permanent presence of farmers and breeders from groups that among other things were characterised by intense mobility, and the movement of raw materials”.It added that the prehistory in the mountainous areas of Cyprus uncovered by the research team “opens a new chapter in the archaeology of the island that aspires to include in the discussion theoretically marginal areas and their role in shaping the Cypriot cultural tradition over time,” the announcement said.Part of the Troodos digs is to explore the area’s environmental dynamics, which the antiquities department said must have greatly affected the decisions made by the hunter-gatherer groups who seem to have visited this area frequently throughout the island’s early prehistory (10,000 – 6,000 BC).The finds so far in the area as a whole have reinforced the view that the particular river terrace in the Troodos mountains, next to the Xeros, was repeatedly visited by groups of hunter-gatherers who remained at the site for an unknown period each time, and whose trip was part of a route from the coast to the mountains and vice-versa but, according to the latest discoveries, also had permanent settlement.The department stressed however that the “absolute dating from the Roudhias site” was still pending.You May LikeiDailyinfosList Of 13 Best Affordable Cars for College StudentsiDailyinfosUndoWorldemandLoni Anderson Turns 72 & Is Unrecognizable TodayWorldemandUndoCash RoadsterFormer Quarterback Terry Bradshaw Has Shocked Fans With Where He Lives NowCash RoadsterUndo At least 20 killed, 50 injured in attack on VP candidate’s office in KabulUndoModi versus Wild: Indian PM to join Bear Grylls in wildernessUndoBritain preparing for a no-deal BrexitUndoby Taboolaby Taboola read more
