Fathom Adds Two Cuba Sailing Dates for Fall 2016

first_imgzoom Carnival Corporation’s newest brand Fathom has added two Cuba cruise dates for fall 2016 in response to strong demand by its travelers.The additional sailings will take place the weeks of October 9 and November 6.For both week-long cruises, Fathom’s Adonia will depart PortMiami for three destinations in Cuba, including two days in Havana.Fathom’s seven-day cruises from Miami to Cuba visit the ports of Havana, Cienfuegos and Santiago de Cuba.“Carnival Corporation made history when Fathom arrived in Havana on May 2 of this year,” Tara Russell, president of Fathom, said, and it is still the only cruise line sailing from the US to this destination in the Caribbean.In July 2015, Fathom received U.S. approval to sail from the U.S. to Cuba, however, Cuban-born Americans were not allowed to visit the island by sea in accordance with provisions of a law dating back to the Cold War Era. Having been faced with a lawsuit, the company said it would delay the journey until all passengers were clear to join the voyage.The company announced in April this year it would sail as planned to Cuba, including with Cuba-born passengers on board, after receiving Cuban government approval.Following the announcement, Fathom’s Adonia arrived in the Port of Havana on May 2, becoming the first US cruise line to sail from US to Cuba in 50 years.last_img read more

Sacha Baron Cohen And Isla Fisher Donate to Help Syrian Children

first_imgSacha Baron Cohen and Isla Fisher have made a $1 million donation split equally between Save the Children and the International Rescue Committee to support victims of the conflict in Syria.$500,000 will be used to fund a programme vaccinating more than 250,000 children against a potential measles outbreak in Northern Syria. The other half of the donation will be used to help fund the work to support families, with a special concern for women and children, both inside Syria and in neighbouring countries who are suffering as a result of the ongoing conflict. The money will go towards education, health care, shelter and sanitation.There are currently four million refugees in neighbouring states and over seven million displaced inside Syria. It has been estimated that around 12,000 children have been killed in the conflict and the real number may be much higher. Some sources have indicated that thousands of children have been killed by barrel bombs alone.Justin Forsyth, Save the Children CEO, said: “The Syrian conflict is now approaching its fifth year and children are the first victims. There is no safe place left in Syria, with shelling and violence omnipresent. Food and medicines have become scarce and basic necessities unaffordable. Syria’s health system has collapsed and deadly childhood diseases – like measles – which had previously been all but eradicated have now returned, threatening the lives of hundreds of thousands of children. By allowing us to make their generous donation to Syrian children public, Sacha and Isla are helping highlight the tragedy of the issue today. These are desperate times for Syrian families facing bombs, bullets and torture in Syria. The couple’s donation will save many thousands of lives and protect some of the most vulnerable children.”David Miliband, president and CEO of the international rescue committee (IRC) said: “Now is the time for all of us to double down on commitments to civilians caught up in the Syria conflict. These people are the victims of terror. As hope for the end of conflict recedes, it is all the more important to meet the most basic human needs. Sacha and Isla’s donation is a great expression of humanity, and a challenge to do more for the most vulnerable. I hope it is an example to many others seeking practical ways of making a difference during the Christmas and New Year season.”last_img read more

Its a close race to the finish on The Amazing Race Canada

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Login/Register With: Advertisement In third place were friends and youth football coaches Dylan Elias and Kwame Osei from Fort McMurray.They fell behind in the first challenge and, despite making up ground in a physical Road Block, they weren’t able to pull ahead. Victory in the sixth season of The Amazing Race Canada came down to a tale of two tchotchkes.RCMP siblings Taylor and Courtney Callens looked to be cruising to the win after taking a commanding lead (and winning five of the previous 10 legs), but a souvenir hunt set them back just enough for nurse Courtney Berglind and her firefighter fiancé Adam Kovacs to prevail.The Calgary couple had never won a previous leg and had narrowly missed elimination several times, but that’s the beauty of this competition: the team that dominates isn’t always the team that comes first and that keeps it interesting for viewers.center_img Host Jon Montgomery in Banff National Park, where The Amazing Race Canada: Heroes Edition wrapped up its season.

Kuwait tells UN Assembly Arab States should have permanent Security Council seat

Taking the podium at the United Nations annual General Assembly today, Kuwait called for enlargement of the 15-member Security Council, with the Arab States being granted a permanent seat especially as issues relating to their region top the agenda of the decision-making body.Prime Minister Sheik Jaber al Mubarak al Hamad al Sabah stressed the “wide-ranging demographic dimension” of the Arab States with a population of over 350 million, noting that the 22 States represent nearly 12 per cent of the 193 UN Member States.He highlighted the numerous crises facing the Middle East, including Israel’s recent attacks in Gaza, its continued occupation of occupied Palestinian and Arab lands and “its attempts to change the demographic nature of Jerusalem by its Judaization.”He also deplored exacerbation of the cycle of violence in Syria that has “claimed the lives of more than 190,000 people, caused 3 million people to become refugees, and displaced another 6 million.”Since Wednesday, speakers have taken to the podium in the UN’s renovated General Assembly Hall to address the 193 Member State on the theme of “Delivering on and Implementing a Transformative Post-2015 Development Agenda” as well as urgent crises ranging from the ongoing conflicts in Syria, Iraq, Ukraine and South Sudan. read more

Jimmy Pulls a Long Con in Court on Better Call Saul

first_img How strange is it that Better Call Saul is a show about a lawyer, and this is the first episode to spend a significant amount of time in a courtroom? It’s kind of cool that we have a legal/crime drama that focuses more on the day-to-day of being a small-town lawyer, rather than having a trial of the century every week. And it’s still consistently one of the tensest, surprising hours of TV all week.Last night’s episode took place almost entirely in a courtroom, focusing on Jimmy’s disbarment hearing. We didn’t see any sign of Mike Ehrmentraut or Gus Fring, and we didn’t need to. This episode was tense enough without the looming specter of cartel violence. This whole episode felt like a magic trick. We knew something was coming, and we were pretty sure what it was. Then a small distraction and a last-minute turn makes an expected outcome into a complete surprise. Most of that is due to Jimmy, who is an expert showman, thanks to Bob Odenkirk’s portrayal. Odenkirk’s background in vaudevillian sketch comedy is what makes Jimmy so believable and likable as a con man. Like any good magician, it doesn’t matter that you know he’s lying to you. You know you shouldn’t trust him. He makes you want to anyway.Without Jonathan Banks around, Odenkirk has to carry the entire episode himself, and he is absolutely up to the task. Even as the episode goes on, and it becomes clear he’s about to do something really horrible to his brother, you still want to root for him. And hey, it’s not like his brother doesn’t deserve it at least a little. Bringing the ex-wife in was certainly a low move, though.Huell Babineaux (Lavell Crawford) (Photo by Michele K. Short/Sony Pictures Television/AMCThe Breaking Bad connections continue to pile up in this episode. While preparing for the trial, Jimmy talks to the shady veterinarian about hiring someone for a job. It sounds like he wants someone to steal the tape of Jimmy’s confession. The show is content to let us think that until the tape is played in the courtroom. That’s how the show knocks us off balance and keeps us guessing for the rest of the episode. If Jimmy didn’t have the tape stolen, what did he do? That’s where Huell Babineaux comes in. Remember Huell? Saul’s bodyguard on Breaking Bad? Apparently, this is how they met. I forgot how much I liked Huell, and it’s good to see him back. After the tape is played, as Chuck is heading to the courtroom to give his testimony, Huell bumps into Chuck. We presume he slipped a phone into Chuck’s pocket.The show is happy to let us think that until the end. This is what makes Vince Gilligan, much like Jimmy, an expert con man. He lets you think you’re one step ahead of him. The whole time, you’re pretty sure you know what’s going on. And then, when all is revealed, you realize you never had a clue. During Chuck’s testimony, Jimmy distracts him by having his ex-wife present. He suggests, without directly saying it, that Chuck’s sensitivity to electricity is mental. When Chuck asks if Jimmy has something in his pocket, that’s where the misdirection comes in. Jimmy pulls out a cell phone, and Chuck reveals it has no batteries. That’s when Jimmy asks him to check his pocket. Huell didn’t slip a phone into Chuck’s pocket. He slipped a battery in there. And since Huell is on the witness list, he can testify that Chuck has had the charged battery on him for the better part of an hour.Jimmy McGill (Bob Odenkirk) (Photo by Michele K. Short/Sony Pictures Television/AMC)Earlier in the trial, when Chuck saw his ex-wife, he claimed to know what Jimmy was doing. He said Jimmy was trying to use his ex-wife’s presence to draw out an emotional confession, like the end of a Perry Mason episode. Now that Chuck is confronted with the fact that his illness is a delusion, that’s exactly what happens. He confesses what we all already knew. He was always jealous that people liked Jimmy, and forgave his screw ups. He thought Jimmy was making a mockery of the law, and his only goal was to take away his license. It’s only when he sees the judges looking at him like he’s crazy that he realizes what he’s done.That’s where we leave for this week. Jimmy’s law license is saved, but he’s had to cross a few lines. He’s ruined his brother in front of his ex-wife and his boss. Howard tried to stop Chuck from testifying earlier in the episode, but Chuck didn’t listen. In all likelihood, he’ll decide that Chuck’s tirade reflects poorly on the firm. Chuck’s days there are most likely numbered. When Chuck’s ex-wife arrived, Kim told Jimmy “she’ll hate you when this is over.” I get the feeling the same will be true of Kim. The tape has been played, and I bet it will get back to Mesa Verde. Kim won’t come out of this clean, and she will hate Jimmy for it. That’s the toughest thing about this series. Kim is amazing. She is a better lawyer than Jimmy and a better friend than he deserves. Knowing that he’s going to do something to mess this up since she’s not in Breaking Bad, is painful.For now, all we can do is enjoy the ride and try not to speculate too much about the fiery crash that surely awaits. Hopefully, there are more magic tricks like this one along the way. Stay on target Jimmy’s Fall Is All About Chuck on Better Call SaulWe Knew Things Would Come to This on Better Call Saul last_img read more

The three players FIFA snubbed for The Best Awards

first_imgNow that we know who the nominees for FIFA’s The Best Award are, we need to address the giant snubs that didn’t get a nomination.In what arguably can be considered one of the most confusing FIFA The Best Awards list of nominees, the world of football is getting together to talk about three specific players who were completely ignored by the voters and what greater accomplishments they had compared to the three nominated players. We understand that Luka Modric deserves a spot on this final list and we even think that he will most likely win it, but we could make an argument to not include the other two players on the list because there are others who simply did more then they did. Cristiano Ronaldo and Mohamed Salah, are players who don’t deserve to get nominated according to many media outlets around the world. There are other three specific players who in their view, did many more merits to get that nomination and this brings about a whole different mindset for the other major award of the year: the Ballon d’Or. So let’s talk about the three players who got snubbed by the voters for FIFA’s The Best awards this year.no words necessary. pic.twitter.com/f7eKCCoAA5— Atlético de Madrid (@atletienglish) September 3, 2018Antoine GriezmannThe player who in many people’s eyes should actually get the award as well as the Ballon d’Or, Antoine Griezmann is arguably the player who got the most accomplishments throughout the period that FIFA counts as legal for the nominations. The period for consideration started on July the 3rd 2017, and it went all the way to July the 15th 2018 which was the day of the World Cup final that France won against Croatia. Griezmann didn’t only help his national team win the most valuable collective trophy in world football, he was also Atletico Madrid’s top player in the UEFA Europa League tournament and one of the best players in the world throughout the season. Even the people from Atletico Madrid were lost for words after the snub, because they really believed the Frenchman would get a nomination and even the award. With decisions like this made by FIFA, it’s hard to trust in the credibility of awards like this one.DANS L’HISTOIRE À JAMAIS ??… pic.twitter.com/NmzRHreXj1— Kylian Mbappé (@KMbappe) July 16, 2018FC Barcelona, Valencia CFMatch Preview: Barcelona vs Valencia Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Is derby time in La Liga, as Barcelona welcomes Valencia to the Camp Nou Stadium tonight at 21:00 (CET).Kylian MbappéThe 19-year-old who had a breakthrough performance at the FIFA World Cup this summer, is already widely considered right up there next to Leo Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as one of the best players in football right now. Even the PSG fans consider Kylian Mbappé to be a better overall player than Neymar, which is the main reason why getting snubbed for this award cannot be understood as well. But there is still hope for Mbappé to actually get in the podium for the Ballon d’Or this year given that the award is delivered by French magazine France Football, who are the ones that created the prestigious award in the first place. But really apart from Leo Messi right now, Kylian Mbappé is considered as a better player than even Cristiano Ronaldo because of his impressive talents and pace. There is no doubt on anyone’s mind that Kylian Mbappé is Ronaldo and Messi’s true heir, not Neymar.No doubt for Barça Fans.He is the best.Period. pic.twitter.com/Ly2i5IczSE— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) September 3, 2018Lionel MessiArgentine star Lionel Messi does have a lot of points against him when one considers to vote him as the best player of the season, but he got completely snubbed from any list this season due to his collective failures and not his individual achievements. Because this season as it has been for the last decade, Leo Messi has been one of not the best player in the world if you count the stats alone. With Barcelona, he did win La Liga and the Copa del Rey, but he also won the Golden Boot this season and scored an overall 51 goals during that period of time the voters have to pick their list of nominees. Messi was mostly unlucky to not have gotten far in the two major competitions with his club and country, but he is still the best player in the world for the majority of people who know about this sport.Which of these snubs made by FIFA have surprised you the most? Please share your opinion in the comment section down below.last_img read more

Vodafone India Likely to Issue IPO in FY15 to Raise 34 billion

first_imgVodafone Group Plc is planning to issue an initial public offering (IPO) this fiscal year to raise funds worth about $3-4 billion for its business in India.The British telecom giant seems to have appointed investment bank Rothschild to study the benefits in going for an IPO, sources close to the development told CNBC-TV18.Vodafone will take a decision based on the report submitted by the consultant, which is expected to be ready by August this year. If decided, the telecom major plans to complete the IPO process by the end of FY16.Valuation of Vodafone India, country’s second largest telecom operator by subscriber base, is estimated at over USD 30 billion or Rs 1.90 lakh crore taking into account the company’s $11 billion debt.Market capitalization of its rival Bharti Airtel, the largest telecom operator, currently stands at about Rs 1.63 lakh crore (about USD 25.6 billion).Issuing an IPO will help Vodafone raise cash to boost its growth in Indian market where its wireless growth exceeds that of developed markets particularly its home market UK.Revenues of Vodafone India rose to 42,352 crore in FY15 from Rs 37,606 crore in fiscal year 2013-14, largely led by a jump in data revenues by 65 percent to Rs 5,690 crore.Vodafone has more than 180 million customers in the country contributing around 10 percent of overall company’s revenues. The company was also among those participating in $18 billion telecom auction this year.Contrary to reports, the parent company hasn’t yet decided on bankers or timeframe of an IPO for the Indian division, sources told The Economic Times.”Once a decision to do an IPO is taken, one has to wait for the right business and market conditions. Can that happen within a year, even if the decision were taken now? Who can say,” said the source.Vodafone India is currently fighting an arbitration case worth Rs 20,000 crore with the tax department. The company will resolve the issue before going public in India.last_img read more

In harmony with nature in city gallery

first_imgNature has for long been the muse for many artists. For Devdatta Padekar, however, nature does not and cannot exist in isolation. It has to be seen and felt in relationship to other life forms that exist on earth, especially humans. In a solo show, evocatively titled Feelings, that is being presented by Gallerie Ganesha, Padekar shows 22 works that reflect the sensitive bond of curiosity, innocence and love between humans and nature. The show is remarkable for the 34-year-old Mumbaikar’s adept handling of the human figure replete with its complex structure, movement, grace, emotions and character. What’s more, the artist has worked in two extremely diverse mediums — oils and pastels — yet giving them both a soft, ethereal touch that speaks of his mastery over both mediums and his attempt to ‘discover something new within an old medium’. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Says Padekar, a JJ School of art alumni who studied art at London and Florence later: ‘Nature has always inspired and fascinated me as an artist. The human figure has always played a pivotal role in my paintings as it constantly challenges me. Equally important for me is the mood of the subject and the harmony of colours and composition.’Art was always encouraged in Padekar’s household and his parents supplied the young boy with sketchbooks and pens to draw various objects around him — a vase, a table, a lamp — but he was never given a pencil and an eraser. Looking back at those days, Padekar feels that what his parents were doing at that time was to build his confidence in drawing and painting. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThat informal training, combined with his formal studies at the Sir JJ School of Art, Mumbai, The Camberwell College of Arts in London and The Florence Academy of Art in Italy, developed the artist’s ability to isolate fleeting, precious moments through figures.Speaking about his current show, Padekar says it is about curiosity, innocence and sharing of love between humans and different forms of nature. ‘I find this sensitivity increasingly becoming rare in today’s world. The forms of nature I have chosen are some of the most dainty and beautiful aspects of nature whose very presence and existence can bring joy to most of us but are being forgotten in today’s frenzy of a fast-paced life,’ he says. Padekar’s works in the show transport us to a land of serenity and beauty that nature has, but holds no significance in today’s world. For instance, in a pastel on board titled I am all yours, a child is shown with various birds and, as the title suggests, the child becomes one with nature. ‘Looking at a child makes us lose all our worries and tension,’ he says, ‘there’s innocence in them regardless of colour, class or religion — the same innocence that fades away as we grow up.’ Other works like Sparkling Diamonds, Goldfish, A Touch are all about the relationship between humans and nature.last_img read more

Short-term results and quality-of-life data have been comparable with those of other treatment modalities, but long-term effectiveness is not fully known.The current study randomized 244 men in a 1:1 ratio to cryosurgery or external beam radiation therapy (EBRT), with a median follow-up of 100 months (range, 65-128 months). In all, 231 men received treatment.Seven of 91 men (7.7 percent) treated with cryosurgery were biopsy positive for recurrence at 36 months, compared with 22 of 76 (29 percent) treated with radiotherapy.It is not exactly clear why cryosurgery may produce better outcomes over time, said Bryan J. Donnelly, M.D., a urologist with the Tom Baker Cancer Centre in Calgary, Canada.”It may be that there are some residual cells left in the prostate after radiation, whereas cryotherapy is more ablative up front,” he said. “Another possibility, and there is increasing evidence, is that cryotherapy induces a cryoimmune response.”The panel also noted that gland size is a factor; the larger the gland, the more difficult it is to attain a uniformly low temperature. A prior history of transurethral resection of the prostate is a relative contraindication for cryosurgery. High-risk patients may require multimodal therapy.The study excluded patients with bulky T3 disease or a PSA greater than 20 ng/mL. Two-thirds of patients had a Gleason score of 7 or higher, as staged by biopsy. Their mean age was 69 years. The first third of patients in the radiotherapy arm received 68 Gy before the dose was increased to 73.5 Gy. Neoadjuvant hormone therapy was extended from 3 to 6 months.The definition of biochemical failure used in clinical trials changed three times during the study period, and low accrual resulted in the trial’s being underpowered. Nine patients were lost to follow-up, 10 died from prostate cancer, and 23 died from other causes.Using 14 different evaluation tools, there was no significant difference in quality of life between the two arms, said Dr. Donnelly at the meeting, which was sponsored by the American Society of Clinical Oncology, the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology, and the Society of Urologic Oncology. At 36 months, 29.1 percent of men in the cryotherapy arm and 29.8 percent of men in the radiotherapy arm reported having sexual intercourse in the previous two months, although more men in the cryosurgery arm required aids.Source: www.oncologystat.comFor more information: www.oncologystat.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享last_img read more

ASTRO Applauds Congress for Freezing Freestanding Radiation Oncology Center Payment Rates

first_img Related Content January 4, 2016 – The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) applauded Congress for its passage of S. 2425 to freeze radiation oncology freestanding center payment rates for 2017-2018 at the levels set under the Medicare Physician Fee Schedule for 2016. ASTRO voiced its appreciation for bipartisan, bicameral leadership in Congress for their continued efforts to ensure rates for radiation oncology services provide the stability necessary to avoid any disruptions in critical cancer care. The society said the passage of S.2425 reinforced Congress’ acknowledgement that continued cuts to community-based radiation therapy centers could disrupt critical services that cancer patients rely upon.Radiation oncology reimbursement rates have sustained significant cuts in recent years, which has resulted in cumulative payment reductions totaling approximately 20 percent for freestanding cancer centers. Passage of this legislation will help create a more stable environment during which ASTRO and other radiation oncology stakeholders can continue to work with the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services on radiation treatment delivery coding and valuation issues, as well as the development of radiation oncology-specific alternative payment models.Bruce D. Minsky, M.D., FASTRO and ASTRO chair, said, “ASTRO thanks radiation oncology’s champions in Congress for ensuring patient access to community-based cancer care nationwide. ASTRO looks forward to continuing to work with Congress and CMS to protect cancer patient access to care, and we appreciate the stability this legislation provides for freestanding cancer treatment centers.”For more information: www.astro.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | August 05, 2019 | Dave Fornell, Editor Most Popular Radiology and Radiotherapy Topics in July 2019 August 5, 2019 — Here is the list of the most popular content on the Imaging Technology New (ITN) magazine website fr read more News | Radiation Therapy | August 02, 2019 Varian Showcases Cancer Care Systems and Software at AAPM 2019 Varian showcased systems and software from its cancer care portfolio, including the Identify Guidance System, at the… read more News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more News | Radiation Therapy | August 16, 2019 Drug Accelerates Blood System’s Recovery After Radiation, Chemotherapy A drug developed by UCLA physician-scientists and chemists speeds up the regeneration of mouse and human blood stem… read more Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left).

Three of the hackers are Americans What if my little dude had come in contact with one of the unvaccinated Chances are nothing But maybe something And if it was something that thing could have been catastrophic I’ve been wondering lately if I have any friends who are anti-vaxxers Some of the dads in my playdate group are kind of out there: musicians actors and such One is a big conspiracy theory guy Another is active in the Occupy movement Who knows what kind of wacky stuff they’re up to Maybe they hopped aboard the trendy not-getting-your-kids-immunized train I brought it up with a couple of them Luckily no true nut jobs (Well about this issue anyway They’re an odd bunch but in the best ways) There is one dad who is not fully on board with vaccines deeming some of them unnecessary He felt that the reason a lot of vaccines are required by schools is because the state has a financial interest in…I don’t know…their sale and distribution or something It was the conspiracy guy and I had kind of a hard time following his logic He also does not agree with the recommended vaccination schedule asserting that getting too many at a time weakens a child’s immune system (A reasonable-sounding concern some might think though there is absolutely no evidence supporting it) But even if somewhat grudgingly he vaccinates his daughter Whew We can still hang out; our children can still be friends I’m sort of joking…but the truth is I’m not sure what I would do if I found out that one of my playgroup buddies was an anti-vaxxer I really like those dudes And most of the kids have known each other so long they view each other as second cousins At this point especially since I rectified my earlier negligence my children are out of the danger zone Not all vaccines are 100% effective but I feel relatively safe Yet I remain rankled by the anti-vaxxers There is still a chance that my children could be a part of the unlucky few who are vaccine resistant Though the risk to my children is small there are other children who are too young for certain vaccines Anti-vaxxers are unnecessarily putting those kids in harm’s way (not to mention the potential danger to their own offspring) They are in fact banking on others getting vaccinated to protect their own children from the spread of disease It just seems so selfish Of course they believe that they are doing what is best for their kids and are likely discounting the exposure of other children I understand that injecting something into your child that you do not fully comprehend is scary Most parents are not scientists or doctors I’m certainly not I also understand that nothing I say is going to convince anti-vaxxers that vaccinations are safe; their minds are already made up Other people who are much smarter than I am have made a pretty compelling case for the efficacy of immunizations Yet the anti-vaxxer movement seems to be on the rise If you are on the fence I ask only that you don’t just do your “research” on anti-vaxxer websites That is not really research; it’s confirmation Not vaccinating your children is that odd family decision that has potential real life consequences outside your home It should come with a certain set of responsibilities If you have a gun in your house you are expected to safely secure it If you have decided not to immunize your children it is incumbent on you to make sure other children are not exposed to an unnecessary threat of infectious disease It may seem harsh to equate an innocent child with a loaded weapon but if that child comes into contact with a virus he is not immunized against the metaphor is apt Most of the time because of herd immunization unvaccinated children are not exposed to these diseases They are therefore harmless: unloaded and secured As we have seen with recent outbreaks however the safety of the herd does not hold up when too many people opt out If you are worried about anti-vaxxers in your playgroup you need to find out for yourself and not wait for other parents to bring it up It is not a topic you should debate (trust me you will not persuade your anti-vaxxer friend to immunize her child) but it is important to have the information If there are unimmunized children in the group consult your pediatrician about what increased risks there may be to your child Then you can make an informed decision about what is best for you and your family Lesser blogs at Amateur Idiot/Professional Dad You can follow him on Facebook and on Twitter (@amateuridiot) Contact us at editors@timecomA long time ago in a city far far

it is very disappointing He was a member of NADECO and I was a very strong member of another extension of NADECO too So coming from that constituency I am surprised that he could allow himself to be used by whatever is happening now So every comment that he is making taking it to be from the apex body of the Igbos is not recognized by us as Njiko Igbo and more so as Ohaneze Ndigbo and other affiliates Whatever he is saying cannot be taken to record at all That is just like one man’s squad or two men’s squad Like I have told you every Igbo major organization recognizes one Ohaneze Ndigbo and the affiliates recognize one Ohaneze If he says he is a caretaker or whatever by now if there is division one affiliate would have been following him And more so too every meeting they have been holding now I have never seen them hold meeting at the Ohaneze secretariat I don’t know where they are holding their meetings Are you saying that Ndigbo should support Jonathan without giving any condition because I know what Raph Obioha is saying is that as far as he is not against the support for Jonathan there should be certain conditions the president should fulfill to get the support of Ndigbo I don’t think that is what Chief Obioha is saying because what he is saying now is like reporting what has been said All this while I have been advocating that whoever wants to talk to Ndigbo should come to Ndigbo and each time he says it he would tell you to come to the caretaker committee I see this call and the statement he made in the Sun Newspape concerning what the Igbos want from Jonathan as a surprise I was so surprised to the marrow that he could be talking about that as if he is seeking for Jonathan to come and have it discussed because it is just like fortnight ago he made an advertorial that Ndigbo from his own point of view should vote anybody through their conscience That they should vote either Jonathan or Buhari- such advertorial and statement are foreclosing But coming this time around to talk about what he wants from Jonathan means he has a window for negotiation with Jonathan So what I am trying to say is that there is no basis for him to tell you anything In every other group like Njiko-Igbo we have discussed it in November We now discussed at a point what has Jonathan done for Ndigbo We should look at his score card Njiko-Igbo took it and made publications and press releases What has the president done for Ndigbo We mentioned the federal roads like the Enugu-Onitsha and Enugu-Port-Harcourt road and all that We mentioned the Enugu Airport and other federal Institutions in the South East that nothing has been done A notice was then brought to us and we realized that there are things he has done that may not be recognized by an ordinary person So we started enumerating other things that Jonathan has done On the 14th of January Ohaneze went and had a meeting with Jonathan and enumerated a number of demands whichRaph Obioha is mentioning here He borrowed a leaf from what we have in our publications And then Jonathan said look I gave you AGF And since I came to Abuja I have seen the AGF as the prime minister and you say you are marginalized Who knows where the vacancies exist in Nigeria if not the AGF We felt embarrassed that we have our own who knows everywhere What are we then still asking from Jonathan From AGF all these things we are demanding can be influenced So what are we talking about And then we now came to find out that for the first time in history since after the war we have not had Chief of Army Staff we have never had Inspector General of Police but under Jonathan we had it Simultaneously we had the Chief of Army Staff and Chief of Naval Staff Under his administration Chief Ojukwu was given a state burial;
