Sixyear 760M spending for Canadian embassy security in fiscal update

first_imgOTTAWA – Canada’s foreign embassies and diplomatic outposts are getting new funds to bolster their security and some analysts say it is badly needed.The money is earmarked in Tuesday’s economic update.The need for increased embassy security was highlighted in briefing material for the Trudeau government when it first assumed power in 2015.But high-profile terror attacks around the world since then have underlined the need for added security.They include a 2016 blast in Kabul that killed more than a dozen private security guards from Nepal while they were on their way to work at the Canadian embassy.The new spending amounts to $760 million over six years, with a peak in spending of $156 million in 2019-20.Global Affairs said the money will be used to upgrade physical infrastructure and enhance protection measures, including security guards, metal detectors, surveillance equipment, intelligence systems, and IT and cyber capabilities.“This new funding will enable Global Affairs Canada to proactively respond to evolving threats in a volatile global security environment,” spokesperson Brittany Venhola-Fletcher said in an email.The fiscal update does not say where the money will be spent, but a 2016 government report identified the Middle East and Africa as areas where security was a leading priority.A briefing note prepared in late 2015 for Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s newly elected government said the cost of keeping Canadian diplomats safe was rising faster than the government had predicted. The memo said Canadian diplomats face “evolving risks at a time when security resources are diminishing.”Then-foreign affairs minister Stephane Dion said protecting Canada’s diplomats was his top priority.In March 2016, the government said in a plans and priorities report that a threat assessment on more than 170 missions was nearing completion.Stephen Saideman, an international affairs expert at Carleton’s University, raised questions about the time it took to find the money for new embassy security.“The thing about this government is: they take their time on pretty much everything,” said Saideman, of the Norman Paterson School of International Affairs.“So I’m not surprised that it took two years to do this, but it’s clear they’ve discovered they have more money than expected.”The new funds for Global Affairs Canada were part of almost $15 billion in new spending announced by Finance Minister Bill Morneau.The update was buoyed by a financial bump that gave the federal government $46.6 billion more than expected over five years to spend or put towards the deficit.Gar Pardy, a retired Canadian diplomat who served in Central America, said the spending increase is significant and will likely include extra measures at diplomatic residences.“A hundred million dollars, in foreign affairs terms, is a lot of money for any program, on an annual basis,” said Pardy.“For the last number of years, the foreign affairs budget has been under great strain. Maybe it’s a bit of catch-up involved in this kind of money.”In recent years, the government cited security concerns when it closed embassies in Syria, Libya and Iran.The last Canadian diplomat to die in the line of duty was Annemarie Desloges, who was killed in Kenya during a 2013 terrorist attack on a Nairobi shopping mall that claimed the lives of dozens of people.last_img read more

Dont Let OpEds Ruin Baseball

The New York Times on Wednesday published an op-ed with the headline “Don’t Let Statistics Ruin Baseball.” Some of the baseball nuts at FiveThirtyEight staff couldn’t contain themselves after reading it. Here’s an edited transcript of our Slack conversation.cwick: This is the kind of thing that gets our attention around here. A sample of the op-ed: “Thanks to ‘Moneyball’ and stats-driven fantasy leagues, advanced statistics have changed how fans think about the game. On the whole that’s a positive trend — but not when the numbers begin to eclipse a more nuanced appreciation of baseball.” Nate, you created FiveThirtyEight for all sorts of reasons, but surely it has no more sacred duty than to respond to this piece. What’s a sabermetrician to think about this op-ed?natesilver: One litmus test for any writer: Does he know his subject? Steve Kettmann might know a lot about baseball, but he doesn’t know very much about baseball statistics. For instance, he describes how wins above replacement compares a player against “some hypothetical median player, the ‘replacement.’” Actually, it compares him against a replacement-level player, who is way worse than the median major leaguer.He doesn’t describe fielding independent pitching (FIP) correctly. Its goal is not to provide a “broader measure of a pitcher’s performance than the traditional E.R.A.” Rather, it’s to measure how effective a pitcher is independent of his defense (fielding) — as its name implies!On the other hand, he favorably cites “a previously obscure statistic: batting average against relievers.” That statistic hasn’t become much less obscure — it’s not something that we stat geeks are talking about very much. And that’s because we know it’s probably just random noise. Batting average is noisy enough, let alone when you cut the sample size by two-thirds.The point being, the better advanced statistics are all about deepening our understanding of how the game is played. If a pitcher has a 2.85 ERA, is he really good — or is it the defense behind him? That’s what FIP can tell us (although there are better ways now to account for the impact of positional defense).By contrast, when statistics were cited in, say, the 1980s or 1990s, they were mostly just trivial crap. “Claudell Washington is 6-for-25 on cloudy days against left-handed relief pitchers with runners in scoring position.” Shit like that. Totally useless and distracting. And there were dozens of them on every broadcast.carl: Nate’s response shows how these debates are always about which numbers people arbitrarily approve and which ones they don’t. You can’t have baseball without numbers. How would you count strikes, outs, runs and wins?cwick: Right, there have always been stats in the game because the game is such a structured one. Baseball happens in discrete steps. There’s an action and there’s an outcome. Pitcher throws, it’s either a ball, a strike, a foul, a hit, or an out. (Or some other possibility I’ve overlooked.) That creates stats that are robust and complete. Stats can’t help but bubble up and out of those.benm: As I understand it, he is all for statistical advancement of baseball to enhance understanding of the game and quality of competition and other more utility-based purposes, he just objects to the obsession with statistics from an aesthetic perspective. He compares it to listening to a symphony: There’s nothing wrong with understanding how the tuba works or how many clarinets you need, but when you’re there in the audience, you should just let the music wash over you and appreciate it.I find watching baseball tedious in part because I feel like nothing I’m seeing in front of me matters — and I can trace this back to when I was young and learned the factoid that the difference between a good hitter and a bad hitter was “one hit a week.” So if I had a more robust appreciation of the non-statistical aesthetic quality of baseball, it might make it easier to enjoy a game.But the other way it cuts is that, without statistics, I probably wouldn’t be interested in baseball at all. Like many people, my fandom started out with baseball cards. Fast-forward 30 years, and while I’m not as nutty about the game as some of my colleagues, I still take time to follow the fascinating statistical developments in the league, and can appreciate Mike Trout or Billy Beane’s greatness in a way that has something of an aesthetic aspect for me.carl: Like with so many of these pieces, the headline and opening are more radical than the author seems to really be. For example, this is pretty hard to argue with, unless you’re a straw man: “There is a risk that numbers become an end in themselves, and arcane stats proliferate. A good rule of thumb is that the more a stat relies on abstraction, the less likely it’s going to be consistently useful to a wide audience.”rarthur: I agree with @carl. These pieces always boil down to, “This is the exact, right, perfect amount of numeric detail that should be permitted in the game.” And it’s never clear why we should have stopped at batting average/RBIs/saves, as opposed to moving on to more accurate and more descriptive statistics.carl: The related point is that the stats that seem “traditional” (to use his word) just have to do with familiarity, not how arcane they are. The definitions of saves — which itself seemed radical to some when it was introduced — RBIs and pitcher wins are arcane and arbitrary.cwick: @carl, I hear you, but I think there are some passages in here that are pernicious in their misinterpretation of sabermetrics. “When it comes to watching a matchup of, say, the Mets pitcher Matt Harvey and Giancarlo Stanton of the Miami Marlins, statistical analysis is about as helpful in deepening an appreciation of the human drama unfolding before us as it would be for a Pavarotti aria.” PITCHf/x data and Stanton’s BABIP have a ton to tell us about that matchupcarl: @cwick, that’s only pernicious if we assume that statistical analysis can’t help us appreciate an aria. The jury is out on that. Where’s opera’s Bill James?cwick: @carl that’s a story for you!ollie: You’ve all nailed the statistical points. I’d like to mention something else. Kettmann seems very concerned with our attention spans. Let’s take his analogy of music, and going to the symphony to hear Mahler’s Ninth. I need to pay attention. To clear my mind. How would I enjoy it otherwise? But if I knew that disease plagued Mahler’s mother and 13 siblings, or that he had an abusive father, or that he was obsessed with death, and that the last line of that symphony’s score reads “ersterbend” — German for “dying away” — I’m going to appreciate the piece of music more, not less. This echoes how I feel watching Anthony Rizzo bat knowing that he had an OPS+ of 163 against lefties last year, or whatever. Statistics are a complement, not a substitute.rarthur: Right, @ollie. Above and beyond that, I would never presume to tell a music theorist that it was incorrect to be thinking about notes and scales while listening to an aria. You can enjoy it the way you want to. If you prefer not to know the statistical underpinnings of baseball, no one is forcing you to learn them.natesilver: @rarthur: Actually the music theorists are pretty damned interesting when you corner them at a party!carl: @ollie and @rarthur — totally agree. His implication is that quantitative context is less valuable — less artistic, less charming — than qualitative context. That’s personal taste.cwick: Well, Kettmann’s point is that it’s becoming increasingly difficult not to pay attention to the stats, @rarthur. Which I sympathize with — I’m the words guy at a numbers site! But his argument comes across as a Luddite’s. “The art of hitting a baseball starts with emptying the mind. As Jonathan Fader, a psychologist who works with Mets players, told me: ‘Essentially, what we’re trying to do in sports psychology is helping people to not think.’ Fans and writers need to adopt a similar attitude.”natesilver: Some of this is just plain old anti-intellectualism. Us nerds want to understand how the world works. Statistics are one way to do that, but not the only one. @carl, you’ll remember when we were at the US Open last year and I was constantly peppering you with tennis questions. Some of them were stats-y questions and some weren’t. I just wanted to learn more about tennis. I’m curious about the world, both as a “fan” and as a journalist.carl: Yeah, @natesilver, I think we nerds are fine with people who don’t want to understand the sport or opera or whatever they’re watching. They should be fine with those who do. We can all sit side by side and enjoy the game. Except for those terrible tweeting/texting/Googling press-box reporters.ollie: Or the guy on his phone at the symphony, @carl.carl: @ollie probably checking Which is available. We should buy it before Sean Forman does.cwick:, obvs. (God, that might be the nerdiest joke I’ve ever made.)carl: Also available.benm: I know that a musician may appreciate Bach in a way that I can’t. But I think the visceral experience is still very immediate for them, so I don’t think that would be inconsistent with Kettman’s argument. I presume that in his ideal world, we all understand these stats but don’t let them be the main thing we appreciate when watching. They should be more like butter or MSG than like steak or fish.natesilver: @carl: I’m totally fine with the dude who just goes to the game with his friends and drinks about 5 beers and cheers when the home team hits a home run. Sometimes that’s me! I’m NOT fine with journalists who are incurious about the world, however.david: I think Ben hit on something important. This argument — and I can understand both sides — reflects opposing approaches to life. Some people appreciate these events — whether Mahler, Springsteen, or baseball — at the purely sensual, aesthetic level, and don’t see any need for their cerebral cortex to interfere in that appreciation. Others need to find deeper patterns and hidden movement in everything they see, and those patterns are usually there to be found. Each approach is legitimate, but the two sides will never really understand each other.rarthur: I would challenge the idea that the two sides can’t understand each other. At its best, baseball (or perhaps sports more generally) bridges the gap and allows you to experience both a statistics-driven and purely aesthetic enjoyment. In the World Series Game 7 last year, as Madison Bumgarner pitched inning after inning, I was simultaneously trying to calculate whether it was a good idea to bring him back out and also just enjoying how awesome, how calm, how controlled he was. And I was thinking about him pitching up in the zone, and about how Sal Perez was tired and injured, and everything all at once.natesilver: On one level, I agree with Kettmann about the aesthetics of actually going to a sporting event. Some of the scoreboards — like the new Jumbotron at Wrigley — are overkill. They rarely abide by good principles of information design, which usually means clean, somewhat minimalist presentations that fit naturally into their environments.carl: My ideal world would not be one in which I or Kettman or anyone else decides how we should appreciate baseball, music or anything else. I think in our current, suboptimal world, there are plenty of ways for him and for like-minded fans to avoid the statistical distractions he dislikes — apparently, according to @natesilver, by avoiding Wrigley.natesilver: @carl: It’s really about distractions in general, and not statistical distractions. I like going to soccer games because it’s a very clean experience. At the World Cup at Maracanã in Rio, there weren’t a lot of statistics. But there also weren’t a lot of distracting PA announcements, or cheap gimmicks, or anything else.So give me a clean experience at the ballpark — I really don’t need to see Bumgarner’s FIP on the center field scoreboard. But also give me a fast Wi-Fi connection in case I’m in “curious nerd” mode and have something I want to look up.cwick: @natesilver’s prescription for baseball’s future: Wi-Fi in stadiums We reached out to Steve Kettmann for a response to our conversation. It’s below:Thanks for seeking me out and asking me to offer a response. I see far more common ground between the view I articulated in the piece and your arguments than I might have expected. For example, I loved the discussion of how knowing more about Mahler only adds to the experience of listening to the music — but I’d point out that usually you read the program (and the biography) before the lights go down and the music starts. My piece does not argue against having statistical analysis in mind during the watching of a game; it argues against not even bothering to watch the game, because the action on the field is considered irrelevant. Benm states directly he finds “watching baseball tedious in part because I feel like nothing I’m seeing in front of me matters.” Wow! We can all enjoy baseball, even with differing perspectives on how best to understand it, but anyone who says they find watching events on the field to be “tedious” to me does not really love baseball, they love the playground of numbers the game provides. Are the players just numbers to you? That’s seriously what you’d like people to believe? I don’t buy it. My reference to Jonathan Fader and the mental side of baseball is characterized as anti-intellectual, because I talk about the importance of “not thinking.” It does not bother me if the esteemed crew responding to my op-ed has other areas of interest than the question of how baseball players do what they do, but in fact the mental side of performance is the big uncovered story in baseball and in sports. More and more teams, in all sports, are hiring mental-strength coaches and counselors. Ignore all of this, if you like, but others might find it thought-provoking.Nate Silver accuses me of being “incurious about the world” for daring to question how much is too much. I was an Oakland A’s beat writer for the San Francisco Chronicle from 1994 to 1998 and had a front-row seat to watch the unfolding relationship between the young Billy Beane and his mentor, Sandy Alderson, who introduced Beane to Bill James and Eric Walker and advanced statistical analysis. I’ve spent four years researching that period for my book “Baseball Maverick,” published this week by Grove Atlantic.My argument in the Times is in part based on a distillation of what Alderson himself would say. Alderson believes that the human side matters; that you learn from close study of advanced statistics, but you also tune into human elements. Talking today with Jonah Keri for his podcast, Alderson observed “most analysts believe the intangibles are subsumed in the numbers. But I’m not sure that’s the case.”Look, we’re all media savvy here and understand writers write articles, editors write headlines. I think, as I observed, that the application of advanced statistical analysis to baseball is a boon to the game, and is providing tremendous energy that is shaping the way the game is played — and the way the game is understood. Where I part ways with some of you is simply in whether it’s worth watching the games themselves: I was lucky enough to spend a summer at the New Yorker working with the great Roger Angell, and I will always be a fan of his close observation of the details of a baseball game. I’m saying: Can’t we have it all? Love stats, but don’t forget also to love the quirky little details of a baseball game as it develops in real time. Editor’s Note: For the record, all of us (except maybe benm) enjoy watching baseball.

Ecigs banned in nations biggest shopping centre

first_imgBLANCHARDSTOWN CENTRE, Ireland’s largest shopping centre, has outlawed the use of e-cigarettes outside of smoking areas.The practice of using e-cigarettes, known as ‘vaping’, has come under fire in recent times and there has been suggestions that it needs to be regulated.Marketing manager for Blanchardstown Centre Mercy Prendergast said: “The use of electronic cigarettes in doors could have a health impact. There are health issues that haven’t been looked into.“Some of the stores in the centre do sell them…. people are still permitted to use the e-cigarettes in the designated smoking areas.”The ban follows on from a number of public service bans of vaping. Irish Rail banned the use of e-cigarettes on its services in February of this year, with Dublin Bus following suit in March. Both company cited an anti-smoking policy as a reason for the ban, fearing the devices could cause confusion.The HSE banned the use of e-cigarettes in May this year. At the time the HSE’s National Director of Health and Wellbeing Dr. Stephanie O’Keeffe said: “The HSE can only recommend safe and effective products and strategies for quitting smoking, and there currently is no conclusive evidence that e-cigarettes are safe for long-term use, or are effective as a smoking cessation aid.”The government is currently in the process of introducing restrictions on the sale of e-cigarettes. This would include banning their sale to under-18s. The proposal for this legislation was brought to cabinet by Health Minister James Reilly last month.READ: The government is going to regulate the sale of e-cigaretteREAD: E-cigarettes will be banned from hospital campuses in seven dayslast_img read more

Le TaiChi aurait des bienfaits sur les douleurs darthrite

first_imgLe Tai-Chi aurait des bienfaits sur les douleurs d’arthriteUne étude américaine publiée ce week-end démontre les bienfaits du Tai-Chi, une gymnastique chinoise, sur les douleurs provoquées par l’arthrite.Le Tai-Chi est l’art martial qui serait le plus pratiqué au monde. Combinant art martial et relaxation, cette gymnastique douce venue tout droit de Chine a suscité la curiosité des médecins afin de déterminer quels bienfaits la discipline pouvait apporter. Ainsi, l’étude a porté sur 354 personnes, qui ont chacune identifié et expliqué les douleurs dont elles souffraient, et provenant de l’arthrite. Les participants ont ensuite été séparés en deux groupes, dont l’un a suivi deux séances de Tai-Chi par semaine, et cela durant huit semaines. Tandis que le second groupe a également bénéficié de séances de Tai-Chi, mais plus tard.Le résultat de cette étude est que la gymnastique serait favorable à l’apaisement des douleurs dues à l’arthrite. Ainsi, le Dr Leigh Callahan, principal auteur de l’étude, explique à l’AFP : “Notre recherche montre que les cours de Tai-Chi entraînent des bienfaits notables chez des personnes souffrant de toutes les formes d’arthrite y compris la fibromyalgie, l’arthrite rhumatismale et l’ostéo-arthrite. Nous avons fait le même constat chez des groupes de patients vivant en milieu rural comme urbain dans un État du sud et un État du nord-est très urbanisé”. Les principales améliorations observées seraient un moindre état de fatigue et de raideurs articulaires, et un bien-être plus important, ainsi qu’un meilleur sens de l’équilibre.Le 8 novembre 2010 à 18:28 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

I spoke to my son twice ONLY in 4 years –

first_imgThe mother of a Gambian migrant who went missing in Libya, said the time she last heard from her son was four years ago. “We communicated only twice after his departure and all I hear afterwards, were stories of him from colleagues he departed with. Some stories claim that he is captured and put in detention by militant fighters in Libya, whilst others speak of rumors of his death in the desert,” Saruba Badjie, a desperate and weary mother of three, told this reporter.Saruba Badjie resides in Brikama Town in Western Gambia. The mother of three including the son in Libya, is suffering from psychological trauma regarding the prolonged disappearance of her son, who according to her, headed for Europe since May 2014. Tapha Saine is the son of Saruba Badjie and he left for Europe through the infamous backway since May 2014, and went missing in North Africa a few months later.Saruba Badjie, who could hardly keep her voice steady when this reporter spoke to her, recounted the charm, hard work and responsibility in her son; that he would offer her extra hand in her garden as well as take care of the younger kids at home. Saruba who was in deep emotion, said she strongly believes that her son’s determination to succeed, motivated him to brave the dangerous of the Sahara desert, to journey abroad for the sake of the family.Painting a picture of how deep Tapha’s disappearance affects her mental wellbeing, the grief-stricken mother of three disclosed how she cries whenever his friends call their family members from Italy.“It’s really painful for me. I break cry anytime I hear his friends’ voices on the phone. They bring back memories of my son over and again,” she sobbed.Tapha’s story comes at a time when many young Gambians were risking their lives, taking the backway to reach Europe, without fully understanding the risks involved in this perilous journey. His story reminds us of families who lost track of their loved ones when they choose to make this dangerous journey and disappeared without trace.Saruba concluded by encouraging mothers, to advise against these risky adventures and hopes someone who reads this story, will help her trace her son.last_img read more

Mahogany Books Opens in Anacostia

first_imgThe love affair between Mahogany Books, Anacostia’s new African-American bookstore, and Washingtonians has proven itself a thing of classic passion rather quickly. Having opened its doors on Nov. 24, the 500-sq. ft. bookstore, located in the Anacostia Arts Center on Good Hope Road, has become a staple and wistful reminder of positive community spaces. At a time when brick and mortar book retailers have all but gone the way of the West African Black Rhinoceros, D.C. residents remain firmly attached to Black bookstores.“I think part of this is engrained in my wife and myself that moving away from the traditional bookstore was heart-wrenching. When my wife and I were dating, that was a date for us – meet at a bookstore and browse the shelves and have coffee,” Mahogany Books owner, Derrick Young told the AFRO. “Bookstores have always been a place of refuge, where you can go and relax and find knowledge or chill out. It’s a place of community.”Mahogany BooksYoung, who co-founded Mahogany Books alongside his wife, Ramunda, said it was important to provide a space where Blacks saw themselves represented positively and accurately – and within a community where access is often denied. “The core of what we want is social entrepreneurship; I wanted to create a legacy for my family by supporting them, but also paying forward what I received from my mentors. I grew up in Anacostia playing dodgeball in the street. This is home, so I want to give back and give opportunity,” Young said. “People here have the desire and the drive, but in many instances, they lack the access. Many are geniuses, yet the thing that doesn’t allow them to reach their full potential is access. That is what having a bookstore in Anacostia allows.”Candace Crews, a Virginia-based educator told the AFRO: “I believe that children, and really all people, need to see reflections of themselves in all aspects of life – including a bookstore, which is a community space. It is awesome that it is here. I live in Arlington and made a special trip over here just to offer my support.” Mahogany Books joins other Black-owned bookstores that are mostly located in Northwest D.C.Mahogany Books, named for the Young’s 11-year-old daughter, partners with Duende District, a D.C.-based pop-up bookstore that specialized in books written for, by, and about people of color including Latinx, Native American, and African cultures.Duende owner Angela Maria Spring told the AFRO that integrating spaces for people of color to share stories and experiences helps reset the gaze. “There are so many Latinx authors who have been writing and young people who did not know they existed. With so many second-generation Latinx young adults who speak Spanglish (a language that combines words and idioms from Spanish and English) it was important to introduce authors that write using it,”Spring, whose family is from Central America told the AFRO. “Also for African-American students receiving bilingual instruction, these books offer a cultural bridge between school lessons and their imaginations.”The bookstore is scheduled to have a formal grand opening in February during Black History Month.last_img read more

Japanese Company is Nice Enough To Console People It Turns Down For

first_imgStay on target Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. How AMC’s ‘The Terror’ Uses American History to Delive…33 Killed in Suspected Arson Attack on Kyoto Animation Studio in Japan center_img If you’ve ever been let go from a job, you already know all about the frustration that comes with finding a new gig. It’s even worse when you apply for a job and get turned down. If you even get a rejection letter, which is really something that doesn’t happen very often, it hurts to think that you weren’t good enough or got passed on for the job opportunity. That’s why it’s so refreshing that this one Japanese company, Kagome, was kind enough not only to let a potential employee down gently, but offered a nice little package as consolation for turning said new employee down.Kagome sent Japanese Twitter user @tutuanna888 a nice little package containing some modest yet useful food products. Kagome is a Japanese food and beverage company, so it makes sense that it would send out something related to its industry, but the fact that it sent something at all is a heartwarming story indeed.The surprised Kagome job hopeful received a written response from Kagome in the form of a printed note inside a package with tomato chicken seasoning and 100% tomato juice to help make her future food taste super delicious. The notecard with the package read:“We would like to offer our sincere thanks to you for applying to Kagome.We deeply appreciate your interest in us as an employer, and for taking the time to fill out the application form and prepare a resume. As a modest token of our gratitude, we have enclosed a selection of our products.We hope that you will continue to think favorably towards Kagome in the future.”カゴメが落ちた人に自社製品送ってくれるって、都市伝説じゃなかったんだ…何万通もESが来る大企業が、このおもてなし。嫌いになれるわけないよね。むしろもっと好きになった。サイレント企業見てるか?見習え?— Sara (@tutuanna888) April 28, 2018If that isn’t the most touching way to let potential employees know that they’re valued, I don’t know what is. More companies could take Kagome’s lead in the future — hey, employers! Take note, you’re on notice! Let people know you still appreciate their time, even if you couldn’t hire some of them. That really does go a long way.last_img read more

first_imgFebruary 2, 2009 – Looming demographic shifts in the U.S. over the coming 20 years are projected to result in major increases in breast cancer cases among the elderly and in minorities.Now is the time to start planning for these changes, particularly since older individuals and minorities are groups at increased risk for suboptimal cancer care, Benjamin D. Smith, M.D., asserted at the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.Using population projections obtained from the Census Bureau along with age- and gender-based breast cancer incidence rates derived from the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results database for 2003-2005, he and his coworkers estimated that the number of cases of invasive breast cancer diagnosed in American women would increase 30 percent from 226,000 in 2010 to 294,000 in 2030.Meanwhile, because of the graying of the population, the annual number of women aged 65 years and older who are diagnosed with breast cancer is expected to jump 57 percent – nearly double the overall rate, according to Dr. Smith of Wilford Hall Medical Center, San Antonio.Over the same 2 decades, invasive breast cancer cases in Hispanics are projected to climb 106 percent, in African Americans 48 percent, and in Asian/Pacific Islanders 100 percent. The National Cancer Institute’s Center to Reduce Cancer Health Disparities has identified the elderly and minorities as groups traditionally experiencing disparities in breast cancer care.

first_imgTags: Florida, LOL, WTF FORT LAUDERDALE — Meat falling from the sky is weird, even by Florida standards.But that’s what happened at 4 a.m. Saturday when a 15-pound bag of frozen pork landed on the Deerfield Beach home of Travis Adair and his family.Adair said Thursday that the package hit his roof with a “big bang”. He thought it was thunder, but his wife Jennie later went outside and found two bundles next to the house. His son Austin found three on the roof.“It had to fall from the sky,” Adair said. “It was too heavy to throw on the roof.” The home is near three airports, so Adair thinks it fell from a plane.The Federal Aviation Administration had no immediate comment Thursday.Labelling on the package shows it originally belonged to Jim Williams, who lives 170 miles (270 kilometres) away in Myakka City, a rural town of 6,300 residents. Williams, who owns a company that prepares fields for planting, said Thursday he bought some pigs from some children at a county fair in January. He kept much of the meat and gave some away but he has no idea how any of it ended up on the Adairs’ roof. He is not a pilot and doesn’t own a plane.More news:  Rome enforces ban on sitting on Spanish Steps“I would have thought 15 pounds of frozen meat falling from an airplane would have put a hole in the roof,” Williams said.His friend, Jimmy Fussell, who owns the butcher shop that processed the pigs for Williams, said the mystery, which was featured on “Jimmy Kimmel Live,” certainly “beats hearing about all the politics going on.” And it has given everyone in Myakka City a laugh.As for the meat, the Adairs threw it away – though Williams has offered to throw the family a barbecue.

Prefer the Congo to the Costa del Sol Afghanistan

first_imgPrefer the Congo to the Costa del Sol? Afghanistan over Alicante?Welcome to the world of the War Tourist; a rare breed of traveller who seek out war-torn, lawless regions, more likely to feature on the 9 o’clock news than in a holiday brochure.There is a growing trend for adventurous travellers to visit areas that were previously considered off limits. Whether out of desire to see somewhere very different, or perhaps just to enjoy some macho bravado, if there’s no chance of getting kidnapped by insurgents, caught up in a military coup, or catching Ebola – the War Tourist ain’t interested.If it’s on the FCO’s blacklist, it’s on the War Tourist’s hit list.Level 1Danger rating: non-existent to minorYour friends may give you funny looks when you announce you’re off to one of these locations, but they really pose little danger to visitors, and are simply under the stigma of previous conflicts. Sarajevo, Bosnia HerzegovinaDespite the Bosnian war ending way back in 1995, Sarajevo remains a war zone in the minds of many Brits. It’s a shame, as those that do visit will find a charming hillside city, with lovely food and all at very reasonable prices. In winter, the city has two ski areas in the Dinaric Alps less than 30 minutes away, while in summer, locals sit in the streets to enjoy the café culture alongside the Miljacka River.What the FCO saysThere are no travel restrictions in place in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Unexploded landmines remain a real danger, particularly in isolated areas in the mountains and countryside. You should therefore be careful not to stray from roads and paved areas without an experienced guide. See full FCO Bosnia Herzegovina travel advice KashmirOnce a tourist haven, visitors flocked to Kashmir’s alpine meadows, beautiful lakes and spiky mountains. But when violence erupted in the 1980s, the tourist stream dried up. Now, however, trekkers, climbers, skiers and fishermen are returning to Kashmir’s pristine landscape as unrest in the region has calmed in recent years.The development of winter sports in the ski area of Gulmarg, which boasts the highest gondola lift in the world, is putting Kashmir on the map as an international ski resort – at least in the more adventurous ski set.Over the last five years, intrepid skiers and snowboarders have been coming to enjoy the virtually empty slopes and top quality Himalayan powder snow, not to mention the incredible cultural adventure that Kashmir offers.What the FCO saysWe advise against all travel to rural areas of Jammu and Kashmir other than Ladak. Terrorist incidents are frequent, especially Jammu and Kashmir (excluding Ladakh) and the north east. See full FCO Kashmir travel adviceIranFew British tourists dare to visit the country labelled by Bush as an Axis of Evil, but those that do come back singing its praises. Iranians are renowned for their culture of hospitality towards foreign visitors and Iran has a huge amount to offer the traveller.There’s the ancient, historic capital of Tehran, a busy, bustling metropolis; Isfahan, the former capital with stunning architecture, tree-lined boulevards and a great bazaar and Shiraz, home to renowned Persian poets and known for its beautiful gardens.And unbeknown to many, Iran also has massive snow-covered mountains (in excess of 5000m high!) that offer excellent winter sports in ski resorts like Dizin and Shemshak.What the FCO saysWe advise against all travel to within 100km of the Iran/Afghanistan border; to within 10km of the Iran/Iraq border; east of the line running from Bam to Jask. British travellers to Iran face greater risks than nationals of most other countries.

AfghanistanAfter years of conflict, a handful of tourists are returning to Afghanistan which boasts great beauty and history. As a country still at war, Afghanistan is on the cutting edge of adventure tourism, but Hinterland Travel offer tours to various parts of the country and visitors can enjoy sights from Buddhist remains to burnt out tanks. Only for the brave, you’ll have to deal with diabolical roads and simple lodgings but you’ll be one of a very small number who can boast an Afghani entry stamp in your passport.What the FCO saysWe advise against all travel to specific regions of Afghanistan and against all but essential travel to other specific regions of Afghanistan. See full FCO Afghanistan travel advice IraqAlthough synonymous with war, Iraq boasts one the of the finest archaeological sites around the world, from the ruins of Babylon to the historical riches of Baghdad. Already, some speciality travel companies for example Hinterland Travel are offering tours again which include visits to Basra, Uruk and Ur, as well as glimpses of Saddam’s residences.What the FCO saysWe advise against all travel to specific parts of Iraq, including Baghdad. We advise against all but essential travel to other specific parts of Iraq. Although there has been a decrease in the level of violence throughout Iraq the situation remains highly dangerous with a continuing high threat of terrorism throughout the country (except in the Kurdistan Region).
