In Yemen UN aid chief rallies support for relief efforts to prevent

“I have come to Aden with the first humanitarian UN flight to lend support to the humanitarians who have been working in this city and in Yemen since the conflict escalated in March 2015,” UN Emergency Relief Coordinator Stephen O’Brien told reporters there. “Today, almost 19 million people in Yemen need humanitarian assistance. Seven million people don’t know where their next meal is coming from and we now face a serious risk of famine,” he added. Mr. O’Brien said the purpose of his visit was also to meet with senior Government officials to discuss how to prevent a possible famine and how to better protect the civilians that are caught in this conflict. In Aden and the surrounding governorates, 3.1 million people need humanitarian assistance, two thirds of whom are in desperate need of food, he warned. RELATED: As Yemen’s food crisis worsens, UN agencies call for urgent assistance to avert catastropheYesterday, in meetings with President Abd Rabbu Mansour Hadi, Prime Minister Ahmed Obeid bin Daghr and other senior officials, the top UN aid official stressed the need for all parties to the conflict to respect international humanitarian law, protect civilians and civilian infrastructure and to allow for unimpeded and immediate full access by humanitarian partners to all of Yemen. Given the urgency of the situation, they also discussed the need to facilitate commercial imports of food, fuel and medicine, through all ports of Yemen, and the resumption of commercial flights to all of Yemen, Mr. O’Brien said. “Yesterday, I saw with my own eyes the destruction of the war and the impact on the people living in Aden,” he said, noting that he was especially pleased to know that two babies – a boy and a girl – were born while he was at a maternity hospital. “They are Yemen’s hope and future,” he said. In the Aden hub, more than 55 humanitarian organizations are working to meet pressing needs. “We are here to help and provide neutral, impartial life-saving assistance to all people in need, regardless of where they are in Yemen,” Mr. O’Brien said, stressing that there are no military solutions to this conflict and only peace can provide a lasting solution to this unfolding humanitarian crisis. read more

Inconsistency plagues Buckeyes in New York

It’s tough to say who was colder Thursday night; the students jumping in Mirror Lake or the Ohio State men’s basketball team.In the 2K Sports Classic semifinal game against No. 6 North Carolina, the Buckeyes shot a frigid 9-31 from the field in the first half, en route to a 77-73 loss.“We had a rough first half,” junior guard Jon Diebler said. “If we had come out with a little bit more intensity, the game probably would have been different.”In the second half, the Tar Heels extended their lead and were up 19 points before the Buckeyes finally made a run. Five quick points by Dieber, coupled with two free throws from junior Evan Turner, sparked a 7-0 run. The Buckeyes got as close as two points after a Diebler three-pointer with 15 seconds to go. Carolina’s Larry Drew then made two free throws to end any hope of a miracle, and the Buckeyes were handed a four-point loss. “Obviously we made a great comeback,” coach Thad Matta said. “Finally late in the second half we started making some shots and got a little rhythm to our offense. I’m proud of the way our guys fought back into it, but it obviously wasn’t enough.”The Buckeyes dug themselves too deep of a hole with their first half shooting woes. Though everyone struggled to make shots, it was sophomore William Buford who had the most trouble. Buford made only two of 10 shots in the first half and finished an abysmal 3-16 from the field.In addition to scoring difficulties, Turner struggled to hold onto the basketball. His 23 points led the team, but the Buckeye point guard turned the ball over 10 times.  “Sometimes I might have thought about the situation too much, whether I should shoot or pass, so I traveled here and there,” Turner said. “I just have to make sure it never happens again.”However, Turner and Co. had little time to work out any kinks. OSU played the following day against California in the tournament’s consolation game. Junior center Dallas Lauderdale got his first start of the season against California, completing his return from a preseason hand injury. Lauderdale scored eight points and grabbed four rebounds in 30 minutes of play.More importantly, he anchored the Buckeyes on the defensive end, blocking seven shots. “He gives us a different look both offensively and defensively,” Matta said. “He has pretty good timing. It allows us to do a little bit more on the perimeter knowing he is back there.”Friday’s game had a similar feel to Thursday’s, but with reversed roles. It was the Buckeyes that dominated the majority of the game, and with about 15 minutes to go in the game, they had a 22-point lead. Then, like OSU the night before, California began a comeback. California promptly went on a 17-2 run to cut the Buckeye lead to nine. But on the shoulders of Turner’s 22 second-half points, the Buckeyes were able to hold on and earn a 76-70 victory.  “Basketball is a game of runs,” Turner said. “Fortunately we are mature enough to keep a lead. We handled what we had to handle, and we took care of business.”Turner finished the game with 26 points and 14 rebounds and, along with Diebler and David Lighty, played all 40 minutes. Friday marked the fourth time in as many games that Turner has recorded a double-double. “It has been a good stretch of games,” Turner said. “I am just trying to play hard.”The Buckeyes return to play Lipscomb Tuesday at the Schottenstein Center. read more

CVan pass changes worry residents

first_imgC-Tran’s proposal to eliminate its daily and monthly paratransit passes will help to control costs and preserve its services, but some people worry the move would put a heavy burden on some of the service’s most dependent users.Federal law requires C-Tran to provide transit service for people with disabilities that complements its regular fixed-route bus system. C-Van accounts for 4 percent of the agency’s ridership but about 23 percent of operating costs. C-Van customers typically pay $1.80 per ride, but C-Tran’s actual cost of providing the trip is $44. Meanwhile, a fixed-route bus ride typically costs $1.80, while C-Tran’s expense to provide the ride is about $6.As the community’s population ages and more people begin to use paratransit, C-Tran wants to be sure the cost of providing the service doesn’t affect the viability of its other services in the long term.“I think there’s a misconception that agencies are worried about their bottom lines. That’s not true. We’re concerned about our customers. We need to be able to make this sustainable,” C-Tran spokeswoman Christine Selk said.About 1,270 people use C-Van every month and take about an average of 18,800 trips. But, according to Selk, of those 1,270 riders, only about 450 buy a monthly pass and only around 150 take the 33 trips required to equal its $59 cost. But the riders who do ride enough to make up the cost of a monthly pass ride a lot. Those “heavy users” take an average of 43 C-Van trips per month.last_img read more

Saving lives in Paphos

first_imgBy Bejay BrowneTHE PAPHOS hospital renal unit is finding it difficult to keep up with the demand for life-saving dialysis as new patients are registering virtually every month, it says.The unit is to receive a new €25,000 state-of-the-art dialysis machine next week, the money for which was raised by the Paphos-based Cyprus Kidney Association (ex-pats) with a substantial donation of €7,000 from the Dashin Foundation.At the moment the renal unit at the hospital has 11 dialysis machines in use, and one available for spares. All 11 machines are working to capacity, and are outdated.The kidney association is currently in the process of raising money for a second state-of-the-art machine by the end of the year. Currently they have come up with around €9,000 towards the cost. Without dialysis kidney patients would invariably die within one week.Dr Lakis Yioukkas who runs the Paphos renal unit, said the new machine was vital and it also gives a special type of dialysis “which is better for the patient as their blood will be clearer,” he said.Yioukkas said close to 6,000 dialysis treatments were carried out at the facility last year and new machines were urgently needed.“I currently have 53 patients needing dialysis. This has increased considerably from a few years ago where numbers were around 20,” he said.The doctor said the main cause of renal failure was diabetes and this was now increasing dramatically on a global scale due to the lifestyle many people adopt.“In Paphos, the second main cause is also hereditary,” said Yioukkas.“Latest statistics show that at least 10 per cent of the population of Paphos suffers with some sort of kidney problems. If you say that the population of the district is 100,000; that’s 10,000 kidney patients,” he added.According to the kidney association, the specific genetic disorder in Paphos could be traced back to villages in the Marathasa region about 400 years ago.This genetic predisposition would cause 40 per cent of male patients with kidney disorder to end up on dialysis before they were 70.Yioukkas said new patients presenting were of all ages, even as young as 40.He said there were five stages of kidney failure and it was only at Stage 5 that dialysis or transplants were needed. Dialysis involves five hour stints three days a week.“In the last 20 years we have also carried out 80 kidney transplants in Paphos and the number is increasing,” said the doctor. “People need to change their lifestyles, their diet and exercise more frequently.”In general, according to studies, one in ten Cypriots, or 80,000 people will suffer from a kidney disorder in the foreseeable future, and Cypriots suffer nearly three times the European average for serious kidney complaints.Graham Brown, 64, suffers from a hereditary condition-polycystic kidney disease- and he recently took over as the chairman of the Cyprus Kidney Association (ex-pats), which was set up in 2000 to raise funds for the renal unit.He spoke to the Cyprus Mail while hooked up to a dialysis machine at the hospital. Following the removal of one of his kidneys, he started dialysis treatment in November last year.Brown said that the latest machine is the most modern one on the market, complete with a touch screen. It is smaller and more reliable than machines currently in use at the unit, which sees the technician constantly having to repair one or other of them, he said.“A technician is flying over from the manufacturers in Germany for four days to instruct all the nurses within the unit on the use of this ultra modern state of the art piece of equipment. The nurses are all really pleased and we are hoping that it makes their job easier.”Brown said the association’s goal was to eventually replace the 11 hospital machines with the new equipment.We have all sorts of fundraising events planned… I’m feeling really positive that we’re going to do it.”The association also has a new website: www.cypruskidney.comYou May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
