“There’s a lot to learn from Bangladesh. Between 1991 and 2011, under-five deaths fell by almost 75 per cent, thanks, in part, to its commitment to innovation and knowledge-sharing,” said UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF) Executive Director Anthony Lake.“The challenge now is to achieve high levels of coverage of existing and new interventions, such as vaccinations and skilled birth attendants, by targeting the poorest populations where infant and child mortality remain high,” Mr. Lake added.About 60 per cent of child deaths in Bangladesh happen during the first 28 days of birth, mostly due to birth asphyxia, neonatal infections, prematurity and complications at birth, according to the Government of Bangladesh and UNICEF.Taking effective steps to counter neonatal deaths is a “challenge”, UNICEF has said, as 71 per cent of deliveries in the country still take place at home.In addition, the main reasons for deaths of children under the age of five are pneumonia, drowning and diarrhoea. Malnutrition is also a threat, with 41 per cent of children in the same age group experiencing stunted growth.Despite these obstacles, the Government has pledged to scale up “simple and cost-effective” interventions involving a broad range of stakeholders and to regularly monitor progress.Among its plans, the Government has committed to scaling-up nutrition packages for women, infants and young children. Bangladesh is one of 24 countries that have stepped up efforts to bring down neonatal and child mortality to 20 per 1,000 live births in line with UNICEF’s global initiative known as ‘Commitment to child survival: a promise renewed’.These efforts also move the country further in achieving Millennium Development Goals (MDG) 4 and 5 on reducing child mortality and improving maternal health by 2015.read more

Archaeologists in Kazakhstan have discovered a Bronze Age grave containing the remains of a man and woman buried facing each other. Researchers believe the couple were buried around 4,000 years ago, sometime in 2000 B.C.The discovery was made in the region of Karaganda in central Kazahkstan, in a cemetery that has remains of humans and horses, according to a (translated) statement by the Karaganda regional government.Archaeologists work on the newly discovered Bronze Age grave. (Photo Credit: Karaganda regional government)The couple — believed to be of “young age” — were found buried with a variety of grave goods, including gold jewelry, knives, and large ceramic pots. The objects suggest that the two likely held noble status, archaeologists said.It’s still unclear what the relationship was between the male and female, and researchers haven’t determined their exact date range. The bones were sent for further analysis, according to the archaeological team, which was led by Igor Kukushkin, professor at Saryarka Archaeological Institute at Karaganda State University.Jewelry were found buried with the couple, suggesting their noble status. (Photo Credit: (Photo Credit: Karaganda regional government)Kukushkin said in a statement that the pair lived in a period of conflict and strife.Excavation of the burial site is ongoing.Ceramic pots were also some of the ‘grave goods’ found buried with the couple. (Photo Credit: Karaganda regional government)Karaganda has been the site of several previous archaeological discoveries. In 2017, researchers found a 3,000-year-old stone pyramid, believed to be one of the largest, constructive complex buildings in the post-Bronze Age of Kazakhstan.More on Geek.com:Iron Age Woman Buried in ‘Tree Trunk Coffin’ Found in SwitzerlandArchaeologists Unearth Ancient Church, Believed to Be Church of the Apostles15,000-Year-Old, Ice Age Weapons Discovered in Slovakian Cave Stay on target Amazing Hoard of 1,000-Year-Old Coins Discovered by Metal Detectorists7th-Century Skeleton From Merovingian Era Unearthed in France read more

No foul play suspected at this time. pic.twitter.com/ew5SfCmLXi— Miami PD (@MiamiPD) July 16, 2016No one else was inside the minivan.After the rescue, Miami Fire Rescue Capt. Ignatius Carroll detailed the operation. “Visibility is probably only a foot in front of you,” he said. “This vehicle, we understand, was at the bottom of the river upside down, which made it very difficult for divers to maneuver their way inside.” MIAMI (WSVN) – A South Florida man lost his life after, officials said, he crashed his minivan into the Miami River, Saturday morning.According to Miami Fire Rescue, the driver became trapped as the vehicle began to sink. First responders dove in and brought him to shore.The driver, identified by Miami Police as 24-year-old Ciro Curra, was rushed to Ryder Trauma Center in extremely critical condition, but doctors were unable to save him. The van was later removed from the river. Investigators are trying to figure out what caused the crash.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.

Two brown bears on July 10, 2012 in the Kootznoowoo Wilderness on Admiralty Island in the Tongass National Forest. (Photo courtesy Don MacDougall/U.S. Forest Service)Small luxury cruises in Southeast Alaska offer guests a chance to explore remote spots in the Tongass National Forest. Passengers get a front row seat to look for wildlife. But there’s another kind of tourism happening at the same time: big game hunting. That can be a problem when the two interests overlap.Listen nowNow, two seemingly different groups are trying to find a solution.The Safari Endeavour was designed to give guests the experience of adventure with the comfort of sleeping in high-end sheets. On this ship, you can wake up to locally sourced food, and spend the afternoon paddling to a distant cove.Those perks are available to a small passenger list of up to 70 people.Dan Blanchard aboard the Safari Endeavour. (Photo by Elizabeth Jenkins/Alaska’s Energy Desk)CEO and owner of UnCruise Adventures, Captain Dan Blanchard, shows off favorite place on the boat to take in the scenery roll out a yoga mat, or even spot a bear from the deck.That’s a big part of what Blanchard said UnCruise is all about: being able to view wildlife in this pristine environment.“Southeast Alaska is a bastion for wilderness — not just for Alaska but for our world,” Blanchard said.The trips have become so popular the company has even made a push for an earlier start season. Of course, this Safari Endeavour is a hunt for the eyes. But last year, on a different UnCruise boat, the hunt became real.As guests peered through binoculars at a bear, they saw a hunter shoot it.“My reaction was it’s bound to happen,” hunting guide Thor Stacey said. He’s been guiding in Alaska for decades. To be clear, it was a local hunter — not a guide — who shot the bear as a boat of surprised tourists watched. But Stacey said generally nobody, including hunters, wants to see that happen.Still, Stacey thinks as more small cruises expand into the spring and fall, the conflict seems inevitable. That’s traditionally the bear hunting season. A time when as many as 20 guides lead clients around the region.Stacey said that’s led to frustrations for both small cruise ships and hunting guides alike.Stacey has heard the complaint: ‘There’s all this country out there? Why can’t we just go where we want in the spring,’ and we’re sitting there saying we’re already here … and our use has been here since the 1930s.”The Tongass is huge. But small cruises and big game guides can’t just go anywhere. They have to obtain special use permits from the U.S. Forest Service. That becomes a problem when the two ventures overlap. For bear hunters, the scent of an entire boat of people can throw off the animal’s behavior.Stacey said hunting guides attracted some of the original adventure tourists to the region. As the small cruise industry expands, he said the game guides are the ones who feel “threatened.”“In America, the bigger you are the better things generally work out for you … So when you see a large economic interest like that show up and you’re a group of small business,” Stacey said. “The fear of being pushed out or being pushed aside is very intense.”Add to that the misconceptions people have about big game hunting, Stacey said. He stresses this is a regulated industry. He’s concerned about the sustainability of the bear population and keeping the Tongass wild just as much as anyone else.So, after word got around about the bear shooting by the local hunter, Stacey said it was time for a conversation with the small ships.“We figured if we helped them out, the outcome would be much better,” Stacey said.Blanchard said he began to understand what it means to harvest a bear and how the hunts are controlled.“That quite frankly, even though I’m not a bear hunter, it put me at more comfort,” Blanchard said.In January, the two groups got together — in meetings moderated by the forest service — to hatch a plan. Hunting guides shared their knowledge and made suggestions on alternative spots for the small cruise ships to explore. There’s now a voluntary schedule where the businesses can keep tabs on each other to avoid being in the same place at the same time.Blanchard acknowledges this new agreement, so far, has been a challenge.“It’s not a lot of places and probably when we go back we’ll need to try to charter new spots for the small ships next spring,” Blanchard said.But Blanchard thinks there’s still room for different types of tourism to coexist in the Tongass.read more
Dubai-based Emirates airline has bagged No.1 position as the most popular brand in the UAE for the second consecutive year, according to a mid-year best brand ranking which is published every year by market research firm YouGov. The rankings, which were published in 26 countries, including Saudi Arabia and Egypt, are compiled using the Buzz score.Residents are asked by Buzz if they have heard anything positive or negative about a brand during the last two weeks either through advertising, news or word-of-mouth. Emirates has continued to create the highest brand buzz among more than 400 brands in the UAE this year alone, according to YouGov.Some of the other brands which retained the top slots are WhatsApp, Samsung, Facebook, Apple, YouTube, Emaar, Google and Eithad.In 2015, the airline’s marketing campaign, which featured popular Hollywood celebrity Jennifer Aniston, caused the airline to jump at the top slot of the annual BrandIndex ranking.According to a survey conducted by Skytrax, Emirates airline was named the world’s best airline for 2016. The airline additionally won awards for the best in-flight entertainment for a 12th consecutive year and the best airline across the Middle East, CNN reported.In Saudi Arabia ranking as well, Emirates retained the ninth position as the best Middle Eastern brand.Emirates airline began its operations in 1985. Today the carrier has one of the world’s biggest aircraft fleet of Airbus A380s and Boeing 777s (almost 230 aircraft). The airline flies to 150 destinations in 80 countries across the globe. Over 1,500 Emirates flights depart every week from Dubai to destinations in six continents.Watch Emirates marketing campaign advertisement featuring Jennifer Anniston here:read more
Kolkata: Kolkata Metropolitan Development Authority (KMDA) will come up with a foot overbridge with escalator facilities at Chingrighata to curb accidents.”We have already floated the tender. It will take around a year to complete it,” said state Urban Development and Municipal Affairs minister Firhad Hakim on Tuesday. Hakim, who is also the chairman of KMDA, inaugurated two underpasses – one at the crossing of Beliaghata -EM Bypass and another at Kadapara (Phoolbagan)-EM Bypass, on Tuesday. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal life”We had initially planned an underpass at Chingrighata. But the condition of the Chingrighata flyover is not good. Experts have suggested that digging work under the flyover for underpass could cause further damage. So, we are constructing the foot overbridge,” the minister added. It may be mentioned that on February 3 this year, after two college students were run over by a speeding private bus, locals went berserk, setting as many as four buses on fire and pelted stones at the police. The demand for an underpass or a foot overbridge for pedestrians was raised strongly. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedIt may be mentioned that pedestrians and cyclists are barred at Chingrighata and yet people crossover from the eastern side towards Beliaghata – by foot or on cycles – to fetch water. Most of them are residents of Sukanta Nagar and Shanti Nagar, where supply of clean water is scarce. They are forced to risk their lives every day to fetch water. “We have found out that people avoid foot overbridges mainly because they do not have escalators. From now, we will have escalator facilities at all underpasses and foot overbridges,” a senior KMDA official said. The multi-directional underpass at Kadapara-EM Bypass has as many as six gates, one of which leads to the Salt Lake Stadium. The total length of the underpass is 140 metres and the width is 6 metres. There are three escalators with modern roof sheeting and sump pit arrangement for dewatering purpose. The granite floor will also facilitate the movement of pedestrians. The underpass at Beliaghata has a length of 100 metres and a width of 6 metres. It has five escalators and similar modern facilities like the Kadapara underpass. The total cost for construction of the two underpasses was Rs 33 crore.read more

Travelweek Group Share Tags: Jetlines, YVR Wednesday, June 12, 2019 Posted by VANCOUVER — Jetlines has secured its slots at Vancouver International Airport (YVR) in anticipation of its inaugural winter season, set to launch Dec. 17.Earlier this year Jetlines announced that it will use YVR as its home airport and primary base of operations.The carrier aims to operate up to 10 flights per day and over 1,000 flights during the first winter season from Dec. 17, 2019 to March 28, 2020. The initial two Airbus A320 aircraft that Jetlines secured through its partnership with SmartLynx will be parked at YVR nightly.Jetlines CEO Javier Suarez says: “I am excited to share that all slots to operate our winter schedule have been awarded. It is significant for Jetlines as we work to commence operations out of Vancouver International Airport. The Airport operates at a very high capacity in the winter season, as travellers plan trips to see family and friends, or to go on a vacation. These slots will allow us to fly our first passengers for these special occasions at incredibly low fares – at a price point that most Canadians have not had the opportunity to fly at.”More news: War of words between Transat, Group Mach ramps upJetlines has had its eye on a December launch since April 2019. The launch of the ultra low-cost carrier has been a long time in the works and the airline faces tough competition from LCCs and ULCCs already in the market, including Air Canada Rouge, Swoop and Flair.Back in 2015 Jetlines was aiming to start service in Western Canada. A couple of years later it was touting June 2018 as the start date.Suarez says Jetlines’ ability to sell tickets and launch airline service remains subject to the completion of the airline licensing process, the receipt of applicable regulatory approvals and the completion of financing. << Previous PostNext Post >> Jetlines says it will operate 1,000+ flights in first seasonread more
LONDON – U.S. anti-virus software pioneer John McAfee said on Tuesday he was “100 percent certain” he would gain freedom from a Guatemalan detention center within 24 hours.The 67-year-old, who was arrested for illegally entering the Central American country on Dec. 5, told Sky News that he expects to be leaving for the United States “soon.”McAfee’s request last week for asylum was denied because he entered Guatemala illegally while fleeing a police murder inquiry in Belize.Authorities in Belize want to question him about the death of 52-year-old Florida expatriate Gregory Faull, who was found by his housekeeper with a 9-mm bullet in his head, lying in a pool of his own blood.When asked what the chances were of being sent to the United States and avoiding extradition to Belize, McAfee replied: “100 percent. I think later today there will be more information about that.”McAfee insists he had nothing to do with the killing on the palm-fringed island of Ambergris Caye, where both men lived, and told Sky News he left “for his own safety.”“I cannot ever return to Belize,” he added. “There is no hope for my life if I am ever returned to Belize.”Belize Prime Minister Dean Barrow has called McAfee “extremely paranoid, even bonkers.”The Hollywood Reporter on Tuesday reported that McAfee secured a deal with Canadian production company Impact Future Media to develop a project based on the software mogul’s life.The website revealed the title of the tentative TV biopic to be “Running in the Background: The True Story of John McAfee,” and will likely encircle the McAfee’s computer programming career and slew of recent legal battles.

Review: ‘The Upside’ is a cliche-ridden, exploitative mess It’s said that January is one of the prime months that Hollywood chooses to dump its most embarrassing films and “The Upside” doesn’t exactly disprove that notion.Few films in memory have squandered so much acting talent in such a cliche-ridden, exploitative and dishonest way. It deserves its frozen grave.The film stars Kevin Hart as a lazy, skirt-chasing ex-con hoping to reconnect with his estranged wife and son. He accidentally gets a job taking care of an obscenely wealthy New York businessman who became a paraplegic while hang gliding, played by Bryan Cranston. (“You as rich as Jay-Z?” Hart’s character asks. “No, richer,” comes the reply.)You can virtually write the rest as “The Upside ” unspools. Will Hart’s street-wise Dell break his high-class boss out of his luxury Park Avenue apartment and teach him about the joys of corner-bought weed, street hot dogs and driving the older man’s fleet of Ferraris very fast? Oh, yes. Rich white dudes in these films always need loosening up.Will Cranston’s Phillip teach his young aide about the joys of opera, investing in start-ups, kumquats and abstract painting? You saw that coming, too, huh? Poor black guys in these films could always use some smartening up.The movie is based on a true story — and lifted from the 2011 French film “Les Intouchables” — but no one really worked on the shaky racial angle for an American audience, one that has seen elements of this in movies such as “Driving Miss Daisy” or “Trading Places” (that last one also has a pottery smashing scene).Hart often plays a version of the magical black man, a hurricane of truth who readjusts the stuffy white world. There are moments when race could have been addressed — “Your plantation is bananas,” Hart’s Dell tells Phillip, “but I’m nobody’s servant” — however it’s quickly dropped. There’s also a moment when the two men bond over both feeling mostly invisible to the larger society — one in a wheelchair, the other a minority in white America — but that peters out.There’s not enough drama and yet not enough laugh-out-loud moments. Hart shines in a scene in which he encounters a high-tech shower with a robot voice in German, but a later scene in which he cuts Cranston’s facial hair is marred by a Hitler joke. When you have hired consummate comedians in Kevin Hart and Bryan Cranston, relying on a Hitler joke is a sign something has gone horribly wrong. (Another sign: This joke — “You are Verdi ugly.”)The film comes with its own heavy baggage, including that it was previously owned by The Weinstein Co., before it collapsed amid the Harvey Weinstein sexual misconduct scandal. Reacquired, it is released as Hart deals with fallout over his previous homophobic tweets, not helped now by a performance in the film in which he balks at using the word “penis” and initially outright refuses to change his boss’ catheter because it means touching another man’s privates.Hart, a comic force, reveals his limits as a dramatic actor in his fish-out-of-water role, while Cranston shows only a few glimpses of his formidable skills, especially when he turns steely. Appearances by Nicole Kidman, Aja Naomi King and Julianna Margulies are welcome, understated — and completely wasted.Mostly the problem is that once the filmmakers — led by director Neil Burger — establish their odd couple pairing, they don’t know what to do with it. Dell needs money to repair his family and Phillip needs love after losing his wife. Jon Hartmere’s screenplay needs tension, so it’s artificially added when the rich dude starts lashing out at his staff and growing depressed after a bad blind date. The answer? Our heroes go hang gliding. Roll credits.Only one person really comes through this whole meandering mess unscathed: Aretha Franklin. The late Queen of Soul, it turns out, is the key that connects Dell and Phillip, particularly when it’s revealed that Franklin sang opera, too. Her music fills the soundtrack and that’s the only reason this film gets any points, the only upside, if you will. Better yet, skip this movie and just put on one of her CDs.“The Upside,” an STX Entertainment release, is rated PG-13 for “suggestive content and drug use.” Running time: 125 minutes. A half star out of four.___MPAA Definition of PG-13: Parents Strongly Cautioned.

By Kristian ChrysostomouLimassol harbour workers engaged in a spontaneous strike on Wednesday morning after requests for a canteen were ignored by the managing company, DP World Limassol. The issue was eventually resolved and the employees are back at work.The provincial secretary of the transport association Sek Limassol, Yiannis Tsouris, said that this issue has been pending for months and that the workers were assured that the creation of a canteen would be completed within the summer.“Despite being promised that the canteen would be operational by June, the date was moved to July and the company has since said that the canteen will be ready in October,” said Tsouris.Union representatives of Sek and Peo were at the terminal of DP World Limassol, urging the company to give them a written assurance that would provide at least a temporary solution to the lack of a canteen.A few hours later, Tsouris said that they met with the company’s management and that they received written assurance that the completion of the structure that will cover the canteen will be done by October.Tsouris has further warned the company that if the plans for a canteen are not completed, more strikes will follow.In April 2016, DP World Limassol was awarded a 25-year concession to exclusively operate the multi-purpose terminal in Limassol. P&O Maritime, a DP World subsidiary was also awarded a 15-year concession to exclusively provide the full range of marine services in Limassol port.DP World took over general commerce and passenger traffic from the government in early February 2017.A brand-new passenger terminal in Limassol port opened in July this year. The new terminal has an area of 6,800 square metres and cost €13.5 million. It consists of seven units that passengers can move between through connecting areas.You May LiketrainThe 7 Best Train Trips in the WorldtrainUndoLa Mexicana Authentic FoodLamexicana2019La Mexicana Authentic FoodUndoCampusPlusTop 10 Universities In The World (#8 Is Surprising)CampusPlusUndo British woman who claimed gang-rape taken to courtUndoRussian opposition leader Navalny hospitalised for allergic reactionUndoCompanies must use buying power to root out slavery, says UK officialUndoby Taboolaby Taboolaread more
