Kirk and Anne Douglas have continued their support by pledging $ 5 million to the Anne Douglas Center located at the Los Angeles Mission.The women’s program of the Mission is referred to as the “jewel of my heart” by Anne Douglas. The Center provides a rehabilitation program together with emergency services for homeless women on Skid Row who choose to turn their life around. The Anne Douglas Center program has seen over 250 graduates and has served thousands of women and children in the last twenty years.The Douglas family originally funded the development of the Anne Douglas Center, named after the wife of Kirk Douglas, in 1992 and the Douglas family continues to offer their time and resources to the Mission. Besides volunteering at various events such as the annual Thanksgiving event, Anne Douglas regularly celebrates her birthday lunch with women at the Anne Douglas Center.“If I had but one wish, I think becoming a recognized patron of homeless men and women would be it. I hope together we will be able to alleviate their plight entirely,” said Anne Douglas during the planning stages of the Anne Douglas Center.The Anne Douglas Center provides a safe environment for women to escape the streets of Skid Row. Women in the program participate in education and spiritual courses, participate in a work program, and develop friendships that continue past graduation. After the completion of the program and regular visits by Anne Douglas, students at the Anne Douglas Center receive a special “gift from grandma.”“Through the initial vision and passion for women in need, the Anne Douglas Center was created by Kirk and Anne Douglas along with their friends. Now, that vision has transitioned to a legacy of core support to carry on the gift of changed lives and new beginnings,” said Herb Smith, President of the Los Angeles Mission. “We are eternally grateful to the Douglas Foundation for this outstanding pledge to the future of the Anne Douglas Center and the lives of women and families that will be restored to health, unity and community.”Women may continue their education, start their own businesses, continue in their profession or reunite with their families following the completion of the12-month program. The love, support, and direction that the program offers is an example of Anne Douglas’ heart for the women and after twenty years, continues to help women move forward with their life.Anne Douglas AwardThe Los Angeles Mission hosts an annual gala where community service is recognized by the Anne Douglas Award. This year, the gala will be on September 12 at the Four Seasons Beverly Hills. Sponsorships and tables are still available. For information contact Jennifer Yarbrough at JYarbrough@lamission.net.
Samuel L. Jackson has teamed up with innovative London-based fundraising platform MyGoodness.com to raise awareness of male cancer.Video: Samuel L Jackson, “Have You Got Balls?”The Captain America actor tweeted a video to his 3.5m followers urging men to visit a doctor to “get themselves checked out”.Highlighting the shocking fact that 30% more men die of cancer than women in the UK, Jackson makes a passionate – and occasionally X-rated – plea to men everywhere to be more open about sensitive medical issues, and to see a doctor as soon as symptoms occur.The two minute clip tweeted includes the following soundbites from one of Hollywood’s most celebrated speechmakers: “By not getting checked you could lose those balls. Hell – you could lose your life! So boys, don’t be dumb. If you’ve really got balls, show them to your doctor.”“I offer you the chance to hang out with me in London, fully clothed by then, all you need to do is hit on Mygoodness.com and buy a raffle ticket or loads of them…. to support One For The Boys.”“Fact: 30 percent more men die of cancer than women. Whaaat? Get outta here! That’s right: 30 percent. 30 motherf***ing percent. Why? Because they don’t get themselves checked out early enough. They don’t want to hear or talk about it, because it ain’t the manly thing to do. They’re too macho.”Jackson has been a passionate advocate of male cancer awareness since last year when he helped launch One For The Boys – a campaign set up to educate men of all ages about the variety of cancers that can affect them and to encourage earlier detection.Jackson decided to support One For The Boys after he learnt that friends had secretly coped with cancer without telling anybody.This week Jackson has teamed-up with the new crowdfunding website MyGoodness.com to run an online raffle to raise money for the campaign. In turn, people have the chance to win a ‘money can’t buy’ experience including a weekend in London, lunch with Samuel L. Jackson and an invitation to join him and his friends at the fashion ball he’s hosting on 15th June to benefit One for The Boys.MyGoodness.com enables the socially conscious shopper to find stylish handpicked products while also giving back to great causes and charities. The opportunity to meet the Pulp Fiction star is the first of the company’s new line of ‘money-can’t buy’ experiences.“Hanging out with Samuel L. Jackson for a day certainly constitutes a ‘money-can’t-buy’ experience in my book,” says MyGoodness.com co-founders Nathalie Verrando. Co-founder Severine Balick added: “It’s fantastic that someone of Samuel’s status is prepared to give his valuable time for such a great cause in this way”.“The lucky winner will no doubt dine out on this experience for years to come!”Find out more here.
By Mohammed TafraoutiBeirut – The Arab Forum for Environment and Development (AFED) launched its annual report, Financing Sustainable Development in Arab Countries, at its 11th conference on November 8 in Beirut.The conference hosted 400 delegates from 40 countries representing governments, regional and international organizations, and the private sector. The World Bank, ESCWA, FAO, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD), the Islamic Development Bank, and the Kuwait Fund attended. The AFED report notes that the Arab region needs more than $230 billion a year to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The annual funding gap is estimated at more than $100 billion.The report also highlights the losses in economic activity due to the region’s wars and conflicts since 2011, which have amounted to about $900 billion. The price tag for achieving sustainable development will likely increase as regions will need to reserve money for reconstruction efforts in war-torn countries.The report points out the decline of public and private sources of funding in the Arab region. For every dollar entering through foreign direct investment inflows, about $1.8 is reinvested abroad, either through direct investment outflows or through the diversion of profits generated by foreign investors.At the same time, the region remains a lender to foreign banks based abroad, with deposits of Arab customers at major international banks consistently higher than loans given to Arab customers from these banks.The AFED report calls for reversing this investment into the Arab region, which needs to reform fiscal policies, combat corruption, and provide incentives and facilities to encourage investment and efficient use of resources.Environment issuesThe opening ceremony was addressed by former Lebanese Prime Minister Fuad Siniora, who stressed the need for fiscal reforms and enabling policies to open the way for a green economy in the Arab region.He highlighted the importance of investing in the water-energy-food nexus, and fighting climate change “which is a major challenge in the Arab region.”A former banker and minister of finance, he called upon the private financial sector to reform its operations and adopt innovative approaches to secure the funds needed for implementing sustainable development goals. He called this “an opportunity not an obstacle.”However, he stressed the need to put in place regulatory measures, public policies, and incentives to attract private investments in long-term projects.Taoufik Rajhi, Tunisia’s minister in charge of large-scale reforms, pointed out that his country’s new constitution emphasizes the right to a healthy environment. Implementing SDGs necessitated the development of the Financing Strategy for Sustainable Development in Tunisia through environmental funds, such as the Pollution Control Fund and the Energy Transfer Fund, public-private partnerships, and international financial cooperation.Beating swords into ploughsharesThe conference was inaugurated with a welcome speech by Adnan Badran, chairman of AFED’s board of trustees and former Jordanian prime minister. He said that “Arab governments are required to efficiently manage human, financial and natural resources, eliminate corruption and establish public-private partnership to achieve sustainable development.”He also called for “the fostering of peace through active diplomacy to resolve conflicts in the region.”He especially focused on the importance of “diverting the heavy costs of arms procurement in the region towards financing the green economy and supporting sustainable development which would also open up new employment opportunities.”Saab: Development should respect human dignityNajib Saab, AFED’s secretary general, presented the new report, explaining that “while the previous ten AFED reports identified the status of the Arab environment and proposed solutions, now is the time for implementation, and this requires finding adequate funding sources.”Saab outlined AFED’s achievements for the year 2018 and their impact on Arab environmental policies, especially in the areas of water and energy efficiency, by adjusting subsidy systems, diversifying the economy, introducing renewable energy on a large scale, and participating positively in international efforts to address climate change.He concluded by stressing the need to invest in people-centered development based on the respect for human dignity, accountability, transparency, and justice.Rewarding a poverty-fighterThe AFED Environmental Lifetime Achievement Award was presented to Suleiman Al-Herbish, who ended his 15-year term as director general of the OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID) just days before the conference.“Suleiman Al-Herbish has been a global driving force in people-centered development. During his tenure, OFID advocated sustainable development and placed its principles at the heart of its work,” a statement from AFED said. It added that “one major contribution of Mr. Al-Herbish had been his tireless fight for energy poverty alleviation.”Al-Herbish said in a speech after receiving the award that he had always “recognized that access to modern energy services is a vital precondition to realizing these Sustainable Development Goals.” He explained that OFID’s campaign to eradicate energy poverty preceded the UN’s Energy for All initiative.“Our actions are based on a strategy with three pillars: Advocacy, expanding operations on the ground, and partnerships.”Read Also: UAE, Saudi Arabia Fail to Complete Promised Disbursement of Grants to MoroccoNo new funds needed: Increase efficiency, fight corruptionRepresentatives of various Arab and international development funds at the conference discussed ways of collaborating to mobilize additional resources to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals.They stressed that not all investments needed new funds, but are largely dependent on the diversion of funding from traditional projects to sustainable ones, alongside increasing efficiency and fighting corruption.One session was devoted to financing sustainable energy, calling for the adoption of new instruments such as green bonds and Sharia-compliant sukuks (financial certificates), and stressing the importance of attracting private sector investment to renewable energy. Business representatives spoke of the trade opportunities offered by the transition to sustainable development, provided that incentives, legislation, and appropriate laws are put in place.The Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) also held a special session in which it presented a report on “Investing in Climate, Investing in Growth.” It highlighted the positive impact of controlling climate change on advancing sustainable development.
“These are testing times. People everywhere live in growing anxiety and fear. There is near-universal loss of trust in institutions and leaders,” Mr. Ban said in an address at the John C. Whitehead School of Diplomacy and International Relations at Seton Hall University.“Amid such uncertainty, our future depends on how we work together. Our future depends on a United Nations that can and does deliver.”Mr. Ban, who received an honorary degree from the University, spoke about the challenges facing the UN, which he called the “pre-eminent global institution for our global era,” and the contradictory demands and expectations from the international community.“The United Nations today leads what seems at times like a double life,” he told the gathering. “On the one hand, pundits criticize the United Nations for not solving all the world’s ills. “On the other hand, UN Member States and people around the world are asking the Organization to do more … in more places … than ever before. And on top of all this, we face a whole new generation of threats … threats unlike any that have come before,” he stated.The Secretary-General highlighted what he termed the “Big Three” – climate change, the fight against poverty, and assisting people in crises such as in Pakistan and Haiti.He stressed to the young people that their engagement and commitment can make a difference in these efforts. “You here today are not spectators. You are a crucial part of this story. You come from all over, and you live in a country of immense opportunity. You attend a distinguished institution of higher learning, and you are good neighbours of the United Nations. That means you have what it takes to help us deliver…“I appeal to you: Keep working with us. Keep pushing us. Keep inspiring us. Help shape the world. Help us to deliver what the world needs at this crucial moment.” 22 November 2010Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today appealed to young people to help the United Nations deliver a greener, more prosperous and safer world for all amid a “new generation of threats” unlike any that have been seen before.
Junior outside hitter Maxime Hervoir serves during a match against #7 Fort Wayne at St. John Arena on Thursday, March 23. The Buckeyes won the match, 3-0.The No. 2 Ohio State men’s volleyball team (23-1, 12-0 MIVA) notched another win on its belt, sweeping rival No. 11 Ball State University (15-7, 6-5 MIVA) in straight sets on Saturday in St. John Arena.The win for the Buckeyes keeps them perfect in Midwestern Intercollegiate Volleyball Association play for the season and atop the MIVA standings. The Ball State Cardinals’ third straight MIVA loss keeps them slotted at fifth best in the conference standings.“I thought we had a really, really sharp and energetic practice yesterday. I saw a lot energy in the guys. Their spirits were up,” OSU coach Pete Hanson said. “I really felt like that was going to carry over into tonight, and it really did.”After trading back-and-forth points to begin the match, OSU began to pull away after a 5-1 run to take the lead 13-8. Two more three-point runs gave the Buckeyes a 22-13 lead. An attacking error from freshman outside hitter Ball State’s Matt Szews sealed the team’s fate in the first frame, losing 25-16.The Buckeyes’ attacking regime proved to be too strong for the Cardinals defense, as Ball State could only dig five balls in the first set. Coming into the match, Ball State was averaging 9.14 digs per set as the sixth-ranked team in that statistic in the country.The second set started off close and remained tied at 8. A three-point run gave the Buckeyes the lead 13-9. Three kills and two aces from junior outside hitter Nicolas Szerszen helped OSU eventually win the set, 25-15.For the second time during the night, the Buckeyes tallied nine digs and 2.5 blocks. This time, OSU’s defensive efforts kept Ball State’s attacking rate to .045. Senior opposite hitter Miles Johnson and Szerszen both put four balls a piece to the hardwood, while the entire Buckeye squad swung at a rate of .500 in the second frame.“You could just sense that they were eager to play. They were excited to play,” Hanson said. “I thought all the guys were energized tonight. I’m real happy for them, and they just played a real nice match.”After intermission, the Buckeyes took four straight points with the help of two service aces from junior outside hitter Maxime Hervoir. Points continued to be scarce for the Cardinals as they faced a 14-8 deficit midway through the third set. The Cardinals had a late set surge but their efforts fell short, losing the final set 25-19.“I’m trying to improve my level because the championship is so close,” Hervoir said. “We’ll need everybody to be at maximum in May. So, I’m trying to take responsibilities and be ready for these great games.”For the first time all season, the Cardinals did not stuff their opponent in the match. Before Saturday, Ball State was slotted No. 4 in the country in blocks per set with 2.55.“The bottom line is our passers did a great job,” Hanson said. “Anytime you have multiple options and you’re passing well, if your setters are doing a good job and your hitters are executing, you’re probably going to beat up the blockers and the diggers. The offense is at an advantage.”The Buckeyes are back in action again on Tuesday against Big Ten rival No. 13 Penn State in University Park, Pennsylvania, at 7 p.m.
But now they are facing a legal battle, as Victory Place, the management company, claims the lease has a “no-pets policy”.The couple arrived at the Mayor’s and City of London Court with Vinnie. In court, Mrs Kuehn, a recruitment consultant, told the court she first viewed the property in June 2014 when Vinnie was two-years-old.She said: “When we were looking for a property all the agencies that we were registered with were aware that we had a dog and we were only interested in looking for properties with leases that permitted this.”She told the court that nobody at Victory Place had made her aware of their “no-pets” policy until after she bought the penthouse flat.Mrs Kuehn told the court she her made enquiries with estate agent to check it would be acceptable to bring Vinnie and claimed she was told it would not be a problem.The freeholder granted consent and they were provided with a licence, the court heard. Mrs Kuehn told the court how the concierge had approached her and told her of the no-dog rule when he saw her with Vinnie. When the management firm Victory Place told her she would have to remove the dog, the couple refused. Mrs Kuehn told the court how the dog had a “therapeutic effect” on her. She told the court: “The reason why I got the dog in the first place, it was a particularly stressful time in my life and there is absolutely no question that my dog has a therapeutic effect.”I was suffering from anxiety and stress and my dog has a therapeutic effect. I would have considered that to be a special circumstance.”Tim Hammond, representing Victory Place, told the court how one neighbour complained about “constant barking” until 10.30pm on one occasion.Another couple, who lived below the Kuehns, complained of a series of incidents over a four month period of “whining, loud noise, growling and barking” from Vinnie. The freeholders then revoked the couple’s licence in June 2016.When asked about her neighbour’s complaints, Mrs Kuehn suggested they could have mistaken dogs barking from a park below the flat as coming from Vinnie. The hearing continues. A banker and his wife are fighting a legal battle to keep a dog in their £1million penthouse flat because it has “therapeutic effect”.Gabrielle Kuehn 45, and her 42-year-old husband Florian could be left with a £50,000 bill over a battle to keep their terrier, Vinnie, in the property in Limehouse, east London.Mrs Kuehn claims the dog has a “therapeutic effect” on her and that she bought it during a stressful period of her life.The couple claim they were given permission to bring Vinnie by the property’s freeholders, shortly before their move in November 2015.

Maxisciences a déballé et testé la Freebox Revolution Free a commencé à livrer ses nouvelles box (version 6) la semaine dernière. La Freebox Revolution s’était arrachée en pré-commande au mois de décembre juste après la présentation en grandes pompes faite par Xavier Niel, patron de Free, à Paris. Premières impressions.Le 14 décembre dernier, Xavier Niel présentait à la presse la version 6 de sa box : la Freebox Revolution. Conçus par Philippe Starck, les nouveaux boîtiers au design sobre ont suscité pléthores de commentaires sur la Toile. Maintenant que l’on a pu tester la nouvelle box vedette, révolution ou pas révolution finalement ?Première impressionFree n’a pas fait les choses à moitié et met également le paquet… sur le packaging : plusieurs cartons surprotégés par des mousses très épaisses estampillées Free, au manuel imprimé directement sur la partie rabattable. A l’intérieur, deux box différentes : le Freebox server (pour Internet) et le Freebox Player (pour la TV, entre autres).Si le design a suscité la polémique sur les forums (“pas extraordinaire pour un design fait par Philippe Starck” voire carrément “moche”), il a le mérite de rester simple et sobre. Deuxième observation : les matières utilisées sont surprenantes. On passe d’un matériau rigide et sombre à une partie molle rouge (pour le port USB, qui se détache du reste de la box). Par ailleurs, petit “gadget” qui fait son effet en branchant les boîtiers : l’heure rotative se positionne automatiquement selon le sens dans lequel on choisit de positionner les box.Le Freebox ServerVoilà une information qui devrait ravir les technophobes : si la présence de deux boîtiers et de plusieurs manuels d’installation peut rebuter, il faut savoir que l’installation est très facile et extrêmement rapide. Quelques étapes, bien expliquées, suffisent.Le menu pour paramétrer le Freebox Server se trouve directement sur le boîtier. Un écran tactile doté de quatre flèches permet de naviguer dans un menu (ADSL, fibre, afficheur, connexion, téléphonie, système…).Le Freebox PlayerXavier Niel l’avait annoncé lors de sa conférence de presse à Paris : dans le futur, le patron de Free souhaite qu’il n’y ait plus qu’un seul appareil sous notre écran de télévision. Son Freebox Player inclut donc un lecteur de blu-ray… qui lit aussi les CD et les DVD. Cette deuxième boîte jouit du même design que le Freebox Server et fait plus largement office de “media player” : télé, vidéo, musique de tous formats).L’interfaceA première vue, rien à voir avec ce qui existait déjà auparavant. On est là face à quelque chose de plus moderne. A l’instar de ce que l’on a sur nos PC, l’interface affiche une page d’accueil, relativement fluide et rapide. Si cela reste anecdotique, il faut noter qu’elle est entièrement personnalisable (fond d’écran avec nos propres photos, icônes…).La télécommandeEntièrement revue, elle contribuera aussi à rassurer les technophobes : beaucoup de boutons en moins et un code de couleurs pour faciliter la navigation. La télécommande est assez bien pensée.La télévision et les programmesFree avait mis l’accent sur la fluidité lors de la présentation de sa Freebox Revolution. En effet, le guide des programmes est directement accessible, grâce à du texte qui défile sur la gauche de l’écran avec effet de transparence. Cela nous permet donc de continuer à suivre notre film tout en faisant défiler la liste des programmes par chaîne. Pari réussi pour Free de ce côté là.Autre nouveauté : la présence de tous les programmes de rattrapage par chaîne va ravir ceux qui n’ont pas toujours le temps d’être là pendant leurs programmes préférés. Cependant son évolution est à surveiller. La semaine dernière, un journaliste de l’Express révélait que les chaînes privées TF1 et M6 avaient l’intention de bloquer l’accès à leurs services de “catch up” de programmes sur cette nouvelle Freebox (voir notre article). Ce qui est surtout plaisant sur la box version 6 de Free, c’est la possibilité de programmer des enregistrements d’émissions très facilement sans avoir à passer par la TV. Il est possible de le faire depuis l’interface de Free, et donc depuis son smartphone. Ces programmes sont stockés sur le disque dur interne du boîtier. Navigation InternetSi jusque-là la Freebox Revolution semble avoir tout pour plaire, il y a une ombre au tableau. La navigation Internet, qui se veut similaire à celle que l’on a sur nos PC et Mac (avec favoris, historique…) n’est pas très aisée. Malgré la présence d’un clavier virtuel, il faut impérativement se servir de la télécommande pour naviguer, et celle-ci passe automatiquement en mode gyroscopique (comme les manettes de Wii). Pas évident de surfer de cette manière. Alors on laisse tomber et on repart sur notre bon vieux PC.Applications et jeuxPour le moment, seuls quelques jeux (que nous n’avons pas encore testés) développés par Gameloft sont disponibles. Asphalt 5 et Let’s Golf 2 sont offerts à tous les acquéreurs de la nouvelle box. Si Xavier Niel avait promis une qualité graphique comparable à celle de la PS3, il est évident que la Freebox Revolution aura du mal à remplacer les consoles de jeu si chères aux gamers, qui attendent aussi de voir comment va évoluer le Freestore (boutique d’applications de l’opérateur).Gestion des photosPour le coup, Free a développé un véritable programme, similaire au Coverflow de Mac : diaporama fluide, affichage de vignettes… Très pratique et assez sympa pour visionner nos photos personnelles dans notre salon.À lire aussiArctique, météo et Google Maps, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 24 juinLes “à côté”L’iPhone et l’iPad pourront contrôler les boitiers de cette nouvelle Freebox. Actuellement il faut utiliser une application et un accessoire Infrarouge. Il sera aussi possible de l’utiliser comme clavier pour naviguer sur Internet sur notre télévision. Mais pour cela, il faut encore patienter…Par ailleurs, maintenant que les appels vers tous les mobiles de France métropolitaine sont illimités avec la Freebox, il est possible d’installer un client VoIP sur notre smartphone (comme Siphon pour iPhone) qui nous permettra de passer nos appels depuis notre mobile via le réseau Wi-Fi et non notre forfait. De plus, l’offre (payante) MutiTV nous permet de bénéficier du service Freebox TV sur différents téléviseurs avec un seul accès ADSL, de regarder simultanément la télévision sur un poste et regarder (ou enregistrer avec un boîtier TV compatible HD) un programme sur un autre poste.Ceux qui possèdent déjà un lecteur blu-ray, une console de jeu, une connexion Internet et la TNT ne verront sans doute pas de grand intérêt à résilier leur abonnement chez un autre opérateur pour souscrire à la Freebox version 6. Mais quoi qu’il en soit, il faut reconnaître que le produit est agréable et surtout que jamais une box n’a proposé autant de services à la fois auparavant. Un constat qui amène à dire que la dernière née de Free porte plutôt bien son nom. Néanmoins, plusieurs services manquent encore à l’heure actuelle (applications iPhone, iPad, boutique, jeux…). Il semblerait que l’opérateur ait voulu tenir ses délais après son annonce très médiatisée de décembre. Il ne faudrait pas qu’il tarde trop longtemps, au risque de décevoir les nouveaux Freenautes qui paraissaient conquis par les promesses de Xavier Niel avant même de recevoir les fameuses boîtes à la maison.Le 10 janvier 2011 à 17:56 • Emmanuel Perrin
Les pesticides seraient impliqués dans des maladies graves, selon l’InsermUne étude de l’Inserm (Institut national de la santé et de la recherche médicale) pointe du doigt les produits phytosanitaires et leur lien plus que probable avec de nombreux problèmes de santé. Des cancers, malformations ou encore la maladie de Parkinson seraient causés par l’utilisation et la consommation de pesticides.En quelques décennies, les pesticides sont malheureusement devenus omniprésents dans notre quotidien, à tel point qu’il est difficile aujourd’hui d’éviter une consommation même passive de ces produits phytosanitaires destinés à tuer insectes, champignons, infections ou herbes invasives empêchant le bon déroulement de notre système agricole. Cependant, les risques qu’ils présentent sur la santé humaine en plus de l’environnement sont de plus en plus dénoncés.Une “expertise collective” publiée jeudi par l’Inserm tire ainsi une nouvelle fois la sonnette d’alarme, en confirmant le risque accru de développer des pathologies graves en cas de surexposition aux herbicides, fongicides ou insecticides. Des cancers et des troubles de la fertilité Selon l’étude, une “présomption forte” porte notamment sur un lien entre ces composés chimiques et plusieurs cancers (cerveau, thyroïde), des malformations génitales ou encore, la maladie de Parkinson (surtout insecticide et herbicide). “Un excès de risque de leucémie ne peut être écarté”, ajoute t-elle également.Pour les chercheurs, les professionnels tels que les agriculteurs et les ouvriers industriels, en contact avec les produits, seraient les premiers concernés. Ainsi, une surexposition aux pesticides pourrait causer chez les femmes enceintes des désordres dans le développement du fœtus, augmentant les chances de l’enfant de déclarer une leucémie plus tard ou des troubles du comportement (hyperactivité, motricité, cognitif). Des problèmes de fertilité ont également été observés chez certaines. En Gironde, terre viticole, le taux de tumeurs cérébrales aurait augmenté de 2,3% chaque année entre 2000 et 2007. Mais si la “contamination” se fait via la peau dans la branche professionnelle, c’est par voie orale que la population générale est touchée. En effet, près de 50% de notre alimentation contiendrait ces produits chimiques tenus comme nocifs à la longue.Or, cette présence est d’autant plus problématique et difficile à résoudre que certains pesticides, comme les organochlorés, persistent pendant des années dans l’environnement et se retrouvent dans la chaîne alimentaire, de façon involontaire, rappelle le document. Le retrait du marché ne suffit donc pas toujours à échapper aux produits dangereux.Plus de 100.000 spécialitésActuellement, la France se place quatrième utilisateur mondial de pesticides derrière les Etats-Unis, le Brésil et le Japon en 2008. On enregistre plus de 100 familles chimiques chez les pesticides dont les organophosphorés, les organochlorés, les carbamates, les pyréthrinoïdes ou encore les triazines. Quelque 100.000 spécialités étaient ainsi commercialisées de par le monde en 2009. Mais tout pesticide se doit d’avoir une autorisation de mise en vente pour se retrouver sur le marché. Aussi, le Parlement européen a procédé à l’interdiction de nombreux produits phytosanitaires considérés comme non utilisables dans un rapport de 2005. Du côté de la France, le Grenelle de l’environnement de 2007 a permis la mise en place d’un plan appelé Ecophyto 2018. Il vise à réduire et sécuriser l’utilisation de pesticides, et a notamment comme objectif de diviser par deux l’emploi de ces produits d’ici 2018. Mais les problèmes sur l’environnement demeurent nombreux. Greenpeace a ainsi récemment lancé un appel à plus de restrictions, arguant que ces produits causent des dommages chez les abeilles. Le gouvernement favorable à une réévaluationÀ lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Les chercheurs de l’Inserm, auteurs du rapport, comptent désormais approfondir leurs travaux afin d’en savoir plus sur les effets des pesticides. Néanmoins, ils ont interpelé le gouvernement sur la nécessité de rendre transparente la composition des pesticides, jusqu’ici protégée par le secret industriel. Un appel auxquels les ministres en charge de la Santé, de l’Ecologie et de l’Agriculture ont rapidement répondu.Vendredi, ils se sont dits favorables à une réévaluation des autorisations de commercialisation des pesticides. “Ces nouveaux éléments seront transmis sans délais aux autorités européennes afin qu’ils puissent être pris en compte dans la réévaluation des substances actives autorisées au niveau communautaire”, indiquent-ils dans un communiqué repris par l’AFP. Ils ont aussi préciés avoir saisi l’Anses (agence nationale de sécurité sanitaire) “afin qu’elle évalue l’impact de ces nouvelles données sur les autorisations nationales existantes”.

In the midst of a heated national healthcare debate, Emmaus, Pennsylvania-based publisher Rodale Inc. landed a series of exclusive interviews with President Barack Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama on how the first family keeps healthy and fit. The stories, and their respective cover treatments, appeared on the October issues of Men’s Health and Women’s Health, as well as the November issue of Prevention. The Men’s Health and Women’s Health articles, publicized the Obama health care reform plan, with Men’s Health “strongly endorsing it.” Michelle Obama was also featured on the cover of Rodale’s newsstand-only title Children’s Health. The special one-off issue carried a print run of 750,000 and hit store shelves on September 15.Rodale said putting the Obamas on their covers wasn’t a sales play. But, even so, one might have expected to see a spike in newsstand sales—especially as Obama’s proposed healthcare bill was batted around Capitol Hill. And they did, to a certain degree. While specific figures have yet to be tallied, sales of the October issues of Men’s Health and Women’s Health are “tracking similarly” to the October issues in 2008, a Rodale spokesperson told FOLIO:. (The October 2008 issue remains the magazine’s best-selling issue to-date, Rodale said.) Meanwhile, Prevention’s November issue, which featured Michelle Obama on the cover, is on track to beat last year’s November issue by 33 percent, the spokesperson said.At first glance, those might seem like mediocre numbers. But, after looking at how newsstand sales have otherwise slumped through the first six months this year, they aren’t too bad. Through the first half, Men’s Health saw single copy sales slide 9.9 percent to 503,929, according to ABC figures. Prevention’s fell 19.3 percent to 300,403 copies. Meanwhile, single copy sales of Women’s Health shot up 8.7 percent during the period to 333,463.Rodale said the Children’s Health one-off will remain on newsstands through December. While even preliminary figures haven’t been calculated, the spokesperson said the issue is “tracking just fine.”

Myka Jimenez says she’s excited to see it reopen. She was there with her dog Desso, a boxer-pitbull mix.“It’s been a while since we’ve come,” said Jimenez. “I rescued him a few years ago and I would bring him here to help him socialize and learn to be around other dogs.”But then after Harvey struck, Desso had to spend a lot of time cooped up in an apartment.“I started to get nervous that he would not know how to act,” said Jimenez. But as soon as Desso got to the park he jumped in the water and started playing with other dogs. “He really needed that time to be free but also with some parameters,” added Jimenez.Along with a new larger pool, improvements at Johnny Steele include expanded lawns for both big and small dogs. There’s also a retaining wall with seating where owners can watch their dogs romp and splash.The park is located on Allen Parkway at Montrose Boulevard. Share X – / 14Dogs go straight for the water at Johnny Steele Dog Park, something they haven’t been able to do for a while. After Buffalo Bayou flooded during Harvey, crews had to haul tons of sand out of the park and it was shut down for months.

Simply meeting the same efficiency levels as silicon isn’t a big deal of course, other materials have been found that are capable of doing so as well, what’s newsworthy here is that using perovskite to make solar cells would be far cheaper. Not only is it more readily available, but it doesn’t require as much production cost. Also, cells that use it would require far less material. Silicon cells, for example, typically wind up approximately 180 micrometers thick. A comparable cell made using perovskite on the other hand would be just 1 micrometer thick.Perovskite isn’t some newly discovered material—scientists have known about it for over 170 years. What’s new is that researchers are only now beginning to fully realize its potential as a material for use in solar cell technology. It was only in 2009 that researchers first thought of using the semiconductor in such cells—initial testing indicated that it was only 3.5 percent efficient. Worse, it didn’t hold up for very long when used. But since that time, researchers have figured out how to make it last longer and have continuously improved its efficiency to boot.Current prototypes are made using a process that involves spraying the material on a base, which means the material is far more versatile than silicon as well. But what really has researchers exited are expectations for creating solar panels far more cheaply than can be done today—estimates suggest they could cost just 10 to 20 cents per watt, as compared to 75 cents per watt for traditional silicon based panels—fossil fuels cost an average of 50 cents per watts, suggesting that the use of perovskite could cause a dramatic shift to solar power in the future if its efficiency can be improved as researchers hope.

Dye-sensitized solar cells rival conventional cell efficiency © 2013 Phys.org (Phys.org) —Researchers at Oxford Photovoltaics and other companies investigating the use of perovskite—a crystalline organometal—as a replacement for silicon in photovoltaic cells have created prototypes that are approximately 15 percent efficient. But this is apparently just the beginning. Kevin Bullis suggests in an article published this week in MIT Technology Review, that researchers are predicting efficiencies as high as 25 percent very soon, putting the material on a par with silicon.

Today, when the assassination of a public figure is seen as a rare and shocking event, it might be surprising to learn that out of the first 31 popes, 27 are believed to have been murdered. In the early days of Christianity, many were martyred as heretics. As Christianity became more widely accepted, martyrdom became less common. But as the Church gained more power, political intrigue and power struggles were behind many of the later papal murders.St PeterSaint Peter by Bartolomé Esteban Murillo (1617–1682)Peter was the first pope and leader of the early Christian church. However, as Christianity was considered a strange cult rather than a proper religion it aroused much suspicion.The Tears of Saint Peter by El GrecoPeter, who was one of the original apostles, is believed to have traveled to Rome around 65 AD. There he fell foul of the ruling authorities and was crucified (legend has it upside down) by order of the emperor Nero, starting a long tradition of popes meeting a violent end.Crucifixion of St. Peter. Luca GiordanoClement IPope Saint ClementPope Clement lived around the end of the first century and was first exiled from Rome for heresy and made to do hard labor. But Clement saw that his fellow workers were thirsty and, according to legend, made water pour from a hillside to quench their thirst.Although his fellow workers were no doubt grateful, the authorities were less impressed. As a result, he was thrown into the sea with an anchor around his neckCaiusPope CaiusAlthough later Emperors continued to persecute, the number of churches also continued to increase. And as each new Pope was elected they had to negotiate and appease the Roman authorities as best they could.Pope Caius was elected in 283 but met the same end as many of his predecessors — despite the fact that the Emperor at the time, Diocletian, was a relative and possibly even his uncle. Although Diocletian was probably not directly responsible for the death sentence, unfortunately for Caius, his family connections didn’t do him any good.Early Middle AgesAfter the Roman Emperor Constantine converted to Christianity during the 4th century, life became easier for the popes. No longer worried about persecution, the Church grew in numbers, wealth and power.By the early Middle Ages, popes were powerful figures on the political scene, governing over the Papal state and many both lived and ruled like kings. They no longer feared martyrdom, but now political intrigues and power struggles became the new threat.John VIIIPope John VIIIAlthough Pope John VIII didn’t have to worry about persecution. His enemies were in fact among his own people and he is the first pope to have been assassinated by one of his own clergy.John VIII was considered a capable pontiff with much of his energy and funds going on his fight against the Saracens who were making progress across southern Europe, including the south of Italy.John VIIIThe Pope’s efforts were not very effectual and put a huge strain on the papal finances. As a result, some of the clergy may have decided that it would be best to remove him and he was both poisoned and clubbed to death in 882.Stephen VIPope Stephen VI (VII)Not surprisingly promotion through the ranks of the church did not appeal to all clergy. It seems that Stephen VI took on the role of Bishop reluctantly and later was made pope in 896.He immediately made himself unpopular by putting his predecessor, Pope Formosus, on trial. The problem was that Formosus was already dead and his corpse had to be exhumed in order to appear in court. Other versions of events suggest that enemies of Formosus were the ones behind the absurd trial. At any rate, it was Stephen who suffered for it. He was imprisoned, and died by strangulation in 897.Related Video: Buddhist Monks Self Mummification – Practiced For CenturiesJohn XIIJohn XIIReligion and politics continued to overlap in Italy. In the year 955 Octavius, the son of a Roman prince, was elected pope and took the name Pope John XII. He also succeeded his father as prince and carried out both roles using different names to suit the occasion or edict.His secular life was also typical of many of the nobility of the period and the ancient papal palaces were described as being like a brothel. The prince-pope met his end not because of persecutors or political enemy’s but at the hands of a jealous husband who found the pope in bed with his wife.Modern timesModern popes take safety and security very seriously. The current pope, Francis, has his own personal security guards. The 500-year-old Swiss Guard who swear allegiance to the pope are responsible for his personal security.Read another story from us: That Awkward Time President LBJ Gifted the Pope a Bust of Himself for ChristmasHis is also protected by the host country’s security forces when traveling abroad. However, as Pope Francis is very much a man of the people, he is known to interact more with the public than previous popes. As a result, he is perhaps more at risk than some recent popes, but still considerably safer than many of the early predecessors.
Apple lowering its earnings guidance by a whopping $5 billion is probably a big enough indicator that the tech giant is feeling the effects of struggling smartphone sales and the U.S.-China trade war. A new Nikkei report makes it even clearer that the tech giant isn’t immune to market saturation, though: According to the publication, Cupertino has asked its suppliers to manufacture fewer iPhones than planned for January to March. Apple is reportedly cutting the overall production target of both old and new iPhones, including the XS Max, XS and XR, by around 10 percent.According to one of Nikkei’s sources, “the level of revision is different for each supplier and depends on the product mix they supply.” In addition, the tech giant apparently told suppliers to lower its manufacturing target even before it adjusted its earnings guidance.Nikkei says that instead of going forward with its planned production of 43 million units, the company is reducing its target number for the quarter to 40 million iPhones. Those numbers are significantly lower than the 47 to 48 million units Apple originally wanted to manufacture for the first three months of 2019. Cupertino probably decided on that initial goal based on previous sales, seeing as it sold 52.21 million units within the same period last year.In November 2018, Nikkei also reported that Apple canceled a planned production increase for the iPhone XR. When asked about reports that Apple’s affordable smartphone is a flop in a recent interview, though, Tim Cook said those reports aren’t true and that the XR “has been the most popular iPhone every single day” since it launched.

In all, Shelton spent six seasons with the Cardinals, playing in 82 games with 77 starts. Mostly a left tackle, 2004 saw the lineman move to the right side. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling 1976: No. 22 overall 2009: No. 31 overall Williams has had a somewhat inconsistent four years in Arizona, battling weight issues and injuries to the tune of 54 games played. However, he seemed to come on strong in 2013, recording 23 total tackles along with his first career sack and interception (which he returned for a touchdown). 1975: No 21 overall The Arizona Cardinals are not exactly used to waiting a while to hear their name called on draft day.Such is life when you’re perennially one of the league’s lesser teams.However, things may be changing in the desert, as under head coach Bruce Arians and general manager Steve Keim the Cardinals won 10 games last season and narrowly missed reaching the playoffs for the fourth time since moving to Arizona. 1999: No. 21 overall 0 Comments Share The 2009 Cardinals finished with a 10-6 record but lost in the divisional round to the eventual Super Bowl champion New Orleans Saints. This earned them the 26th pick, which they used on Tennessee defensive tackle Dan Williams. Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Dawson lasted nine NFL seasons — seven of which were spent in St. Louis. He appeared in 88 games with the Cardinals, including 84 starts. He tallied 3.5 sacks in 1982, which was the first year the NFL kept track of the statistic. 2010: No. 26 overall The 1974 St. Louis Cardinals won the NFC East with a 10-4 record but lost in the divisional playoff round to the Minnesota Vikings. This left them with the 21st pick in the draft, and they used it to select defensive back Tim Gray out of Texas A&M.Gray lasted just one season with the Cardinals, though, appearing in all 14 games but failing to record an interception. He returned one kick for 20 yards The 1998 season saw the Cardinals rally to earn a Wild Card berth, getting them to the postseason for the first time since the franchise moved to Arizona. They even knocked off the Dallas Cowboys 20-7 in the Wild Card round before losing to the Vikings 41-21 in the divisional round. This earned them the 21st pick in the draft, which they used on Eastern Michigan tackle L.J. Shelton.Now to be fair, Shelton was not the first player the Cardinals took in 1999. By way of a trade they made the previous draft with the San Diego Chargers, they also held the eighth pick, which was used to take Ohio State receiver David Boston. But that was San Diego’s pick, not Arizona’s. Shelton was supposed to be Lomas Brown’s replacement, but those plans were delayed when a contract holdout led to him missing the first two games of the regular season. Once with the team, however, Shelton proved to be a pretty solid acquisition. Top Stories No doubt the Cardinals would have rather been picking one stop lower, the second-to-last pick is reserved for the team that loses in the Super Bowl. But alas, that’s where the Cards were in 2009 after falling to the Steelers 27-23 in Super Bowl XLIII, using the 31st pick to select Ohio State running back Beanie Wells.And after a rookie season that saw Wells rush for 793 yards and seven touchdowns, it appeared like the Cardinals may have found something. But injuries slowed his progression and while Wells ran for 1,047 yards and 10 touchdowns in 2011, he failed to establish himself as an every-down NFL back. Wells rushed for just 234 yards and five touchdowns in eight games in 2012, and was waived the following offseason. Just 25 years old, Wells’ career is not necessarily over, but a torn Achilles tendon during a workout for the Baltimore Ravens last October definitely won’t help him get back on the field. But they did earn something that is almost as rare: a first-round draft pick in the 20s or later. Barring a trade, the Cardinals will be the 20th team to pick on May 8. Including this year, the Cardinals franchise — including its time in Chicago and St. Louis — will have had its first-round selection fall in that range or lower just six times.Here’s a look at the previous five: The 1975 Cardinals reached the postseason for the second straight year with an 11-3 record along with another NFC East title, but saw their season come to an end by way of a 35-23 loss to the L.A. Rams in the divisional round. That left them with the 22nd pick in the draft, and they spent it on defensive tackle Mike Dawson out of Arizona.
