Would you invite a stranger into your home, share photos and share some of the most intimate details of your life with them?”.“From the moment our children are born we look after them, teaching them the safe cross code etcetera, yet the internet is thrown at them without rules or guidelines”’ Dr. Griffin stated.She also discussed the growing issue of ‘Facebook Depression’ where people are presenting signs of being ‘clinically depressed’ from Facebook use.“Some people spend so much time on Facebook they start to judge their own life from what they see online. They see a friend’s pages with pictures of them on holidays and feel their own life is inadequate, but what they are seeing is the edited highlights of someone’s life”,  she explained.Dermot Troy, Limerick Youth Service, urged people who have concerns about sites such as Facebook or SnapChat to contact Limerick Youth Service.“People of all ages can have issues with social networking but the key is educating and understanding how the respective sites work”, said Mr. Troy who echoed Dr. Griffin’s suggestion to ‘instil a sense of caution not fear’ when surfing the web. #SaucySoul: Room 58 – ‘Hate To See You Leave’ Twitter #HearThis: New music and video from Limerick rapper Strange Boy Limerick Youth Service Calling for Additional Investment in Youth Work Sector Previous articleMother’s excuse for elaborate forged licence was unbelievableNext article#LimerickLive: Girl Band Editor last_img read more

Healthcare usage doubles since 2000

Healthcare usage doubles since 2000

first_img15 April 2008South Africans’ use of public healthcare services has almost doubled over the past eight years, with 101-million visits to clinics being recorded over the 2006/07 financial year.Addressing the opening of the National Consultative Health Forum (NCHF) recently, Health Minister Manto Tshabalala-Msimang said the increase was due to improved access as a result of building more than 1 600 clinics closer to the communities, improved package of care available at clinics and the removal of user fees.“Efforts have also been made to decrease the inequalities in the funding amongst health districts and have led to significant improvement in service delivery and health outcomes,” she said.Immunisation coverage currently stood at 85% and the average number of new cases of diarrhoea per 1000 children under the age of five dropped by more than half, from 258 in 2005 to 119 in 2006.“These successes are a result of determination of our health workers to deliver services to our people, there are some promising signs with respect to both HIV and TB,” Tshabalala-Msimang said.Success against HIV, TBShe further said that the 2006 antenatal survey showed for the first time a decline in HIV prevalence particularly amongst young people and that TB cure rates were improving annually while defaulter rates were declining.Tshabalala-Msimang told BuaNews that the significant decline in HIV prevalence on pregnant women under the age of 20 meant that young people had taken the department’s message seriously.“Peer groups go a long way in changing attitudes,” she explained.She added that the department was on the right track in terms of resource availability in clinics with 86% of health facilities having all the resources needed.ChallengesThe NCHF noted that while there were many achievements in the delivery of primary healthcare services in the country, there were still many challenges.This included improving access to primary healthcare services and equitable allocation of resources, the availability of adequate human resources for healthcare, improving quality of care, strengthening district management and increasing community participation.The forum called for a revised primary healthcare strategy for South Africa, in which per capita expenditure on primary healthcare would be doubled over the next 10 years.It also resolved to ensure that primary healthcare provided by the private health sector was made more affordable to the public.The NCHF represents government, public and private health sectors, statutory bodies, academics and research institutions, community organisations, civil society, non-governmental organisations and organised labour.SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, January 4, 2019

Ohio Ag Weather and Forecast, January 4, 2019

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest It’s a tale of north vs. south today. In the north, we expect no precipitation today, and we should see a mix of clouds and sun. In the south, we have clouds building through the day, and precipitation starts to work into southwest OH closer to this evening. h. From there action spreads up to the I-70 corridor, and rain totals from the event will be from .1”-.5” from I-70 southward. As we mentioned yesterday, we may have to watch for some of the moisture to sneak north of I-70 in eastern Ohio, but it still is mostly a southern rain event. The weekend is dry, both Saturday and Sunday. Clouds will mix with sun both days, but clouds will increase quickly Sunday afternoon. A cold front sweeps through the state from the northwest Monday, and has the potential to bring .1”-.7” of rain with 90% coverage. The map at right is a snapshot of the potential set up late Monday afternoon. This moisture will linger into early Tuesday morning. Clouds dominate the rest of the day Tuesday, but should yield some sun late. We will be partly sunny and dry at midweek next week for Wednesday and Thursday. Temps will be above normal still. We have some changes to the forecast this morning for late next week. Precipitation moves back in for Friday and continues through Saturday. A large part of the moisture will be rain, but we may bookend the system with snow. Precipitation may start as snow in northwest Ohio next Friday before turning to rain, and then later Saturday afternoon as cold air returns behind the front, we look for rain to end as snow with minor accumulations over a large part of the state. We won’t rule out a coating to 2” in spots This system has plenty of time to change, but looks to be a much bigger player in the pattern as mother nature shifts to a much colder pattern for the second half of the month. We will stay cloudy for next Sunday and look for a bit of light snow and flurries. There should not be any serious accumulation, but we will see strong winds, creating some blowing snow potential along with lower wind chills. The extended period starts off dry, but chilly. Our next system arrives for the 16th and 17th. There can be some rain in southern Ohio, but a large part of the state will see cold enough air to create a good snow storm. There can be significant accumulations out of that system. We follow it up with more cold air but should dry down for the 18th and 19th.last_img read more

Wolves beat Booker-less Suns

Wolves beat Booker-less Suns

first_imgT.J. Warren — who also had 35 points in the first meeting with the Timberwolves — had 18 points for the Suns, and Phoenix started its six-game trip with its third straight loss.Minnesota built an early 14-point lead before Phoenix’s bench pulled the Suns back into it. James had eight second-quarter points to help spark a 25-15 run that gave the Suns a brief four-point lead before Wiggins got hot with three straight buckets to put the Wolves back in front.BOOKER’S STATUSTriano said he hoped Booker’s status would be day-to-day, but that he still needed to speak with the trainers. “They said if he sat out today it would give him a chance to rest a couple more days, so I’m hoping that means he gets to play.” Before the game, Triano said Booker’s injury occurred Friday night in a home loss to New Orleans.TAJ’S TALLYTaj Gibson had 16 points and a season-high 14 rebounds for his seventh double-double of the season. He finished 8 of 12 from the floor, matching a career high for made field goals. While most of the attention on Minnesota’s revamped roster has focused on Jimmy Butler, Gibson has emerged as a reliable inside presence. “He adds a lot to the team, the way he plays,” Thibodeau said. “He’s got great quickness, he’s got great feet, but there’s a toughness to him that makes him what we need, too.”TIP-INSSuns: Josh Jackson started in Booker’s place and finished with five points. … The Suns’ bench scored 61 points. The unit entered the game averaging 45.4 points over its previous five games. … Phoenix lost for the first time in four games when shooting 50 percent from the floor. … The Suns went 13 of 26 from 3-point range, one off the team’s season high for 3-pointers made.Timberwolves: The Wolves improved to 12-8 to equal their best 20-game start since the 2005-06 season. … Starting point guard Jeff Teague (sore right Achilles) and reserve forward Nemanja Bjelica (sprained left foot) missed their second-consecutive games. Before the game, Thibodeau said both players were “getting closer, but I’m not sure that they’re there yet.” Bjelica’s injury is the same foot that required surgery to repair a fracture last season, and Thibodeau said the team has consulted with the surgeon. “I think he’s good but we just want to make sure.”UP NEXT Alongside Jimmy Butler with 25 points and Andrew Wiggins with 21, Towns kept the Wolves from another bad loss, this one against a Phoenix team missing top scorer Devin Booker.“Whatever the game plan is offensively, I try to go out there and execute as best as possible,” Towns said. “Whether it is shoot 30-plus shots, or shoot five shots.”FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSSEA Games: Philippines picks up 1st win in men’s water poloSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutThe Wolves probably prefer the former, as long as he shoots the way he did Sunday. Towns went 12 of 26 from the floor, including two 3-pointers, and hit all six of his free-throw attempts.Coach Tom Thibodeau criticized Towns for not moving without the ball on Friday night, when his star big man got rolling too late. On Sunday, he scored 30 points for the third time this season and recorded his league-leading 16th double-double.

(AP Photo/Hannah Foslien)MINNEAPOLIS — Karl-Anthony Towns’ scoring actually meant something this time.Two days after his coach characterized his late points as “meaningless” in a listless loss to Miami, Towns led a balanced offensive attack for Minnesota with 32 points and 12 rebounds and the Timberwolves beat Phoenix 119-108 on Sunday.ADVERTISEMENT MOST READ Brace for potentially devastating typhoon approaching PH – NDRRMC Typhoon Kammuri accelerates, gains strength en route to PH Carroll’s 24 points lead Nets over struggling Grizzlies Cayetano: 4 social media groups behind SEA Games ‘sabotage’ Trending Articles PLAY LIST 00:50Trending Articles01:48NBA: Kawhi, George seek more for Clippers than beating Lakers00:50Trending Articles01:29Police teams find crossbows, bows in HK university01:35Panelo suggests discounted SEA Games tickets for students02:49Robredo: True leaders perform well despite having ‘uninspiring’ boss02:42PH underwater hockey team aims to make waves in SEA Games01:44Philippines marks anniversary of massacre with calls for justice01:19Fire erupts in Barangay Tatalon in Quezon City View comments Read Nextcenter_img QC cops nab robbery gang leader, cohort CPP denies ‘Ka Diego’ arrest caused ‘mass panic’ among S.

Stronger peso trims PH debt value to P7.9 trillion “I thought Karl had great activity today, so that was good,” Thibodeau said. “We need that from him.”The Suns announced shortly before the game that Booker — who scored 35 points in Phoenix’s home victory over Minnesota on Nov. 11 — would sit out because of an injured big right toe.With Booker out, the Suns got another big game from their bench, led by Mike James with a career-high 26 points. But Minnesota started the third quarter with a 22-11 run, and Phoenix couldn’t find an offensive spark to seriously threaten the rest of the way.“He’s one of our best scorers, so it’s a big chunk offensively,” Suns interim coach Jay Triano said about Booker. “But at the same time we shot 50 percent. I thought our movement was pretty good. We shared the basketball, so I’m not disappointed with how we played at the offensive end without him. We weren’t very good defensively.”The Wolves outscored the Suns 66-50 in the paint, and had 32 second-chance points to Phoenix’s 12.ADVERTISEMENT LATEST STORIES Japan ex-PM Nakasone who boosted ties with US dies at 101last_img read more

(KRT via AP Video)“As long as imperialism remains on the Earth and as long as the United States’ hostile policy on North Korea continues, the mission of our military, which is to protect our country and people and secure peace, can never change,” he said. Kim was joined int the stands by several senior officials, including the country’s nominal head of state, Kim Yong Nam, who will lead a high-level delegation to the South Korea Olympics on Friday that will also include leader Kim’s sister, Kim Yo Jong.Kim Jong Un didn’t make any comments about the Olympics in the parts of his speech that were broadcast. The coverage of the parade seemed heavily edited.North Korea had said it would hold a big event to mark the 70th anniversary of the founding of its military. Feb. 8 has been seen as a less important founding anniversary but made something of a comeback in 2015 and was elevated further this year in part because it is the 70th — a nice round number.The parade also featured tanks, armored vehicles, jets flying over the square in formation to make a “70,” and thousands of people dressed in red, white and yellow creating the letters “Kim Jong Un” in Korean and the ruling Workers’ Party’s symbol of the brush, hammer and sickle. The North also rolled out what appeared to be a Hwasong-12 intermediate range missile, which it flew over Japan twice last year as it stepped up the aggressiveness of its weapons tests.In this image taken from video footage, North Korean military personnel salute as they lay flowers in front of giant statues of Kim Il Sung and Kim Jong Il on Mansu Hill in central Pyongyang, Thursday, Feb. 8, 2018.

(AP Photo)The Olympics probably were also a big factor in North Korea’s decision to hold the parade.ADVERTISEMENT It began with thousands of goose-stepping troops lined up in Kim Il Sung Square to form words and slogans. Later, North Korea displayed its most powerful strategic weapons, including what appeared to be Hwasong-14 and Hwasong-15 ICBMs rolled out on launcher trucks. Analysts believe the missiles, which were successfully tested last year in three launches, could potentially reach deep into the U.S. mainland when perfected.Virtually all foreign media were excluded from the event.FEATURED STORIESSPORTSWATCH: Drones light up sky in final leg of SEA Games torch runSPORTSLillard, Anthony lead Blazers over ThunderSPORTSMalditas save PH from shutoutIn a televised speech, Kim said the parade marks North Korea’s emergence as a “global military power” despite facing the “worst sanctions.”He called for his military to maintain a high level of combat readiness against the United States and its “followers” so that “invasive forces cannot infringe upon or harass the republic’s sacred dignity and autonomy even by 0.001 millimeters.” Read Next LATEST STORIES View comments AFP official booed out of forum In this image made from video released by KRT on Feb. 8, 2018, North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, right, inspects honor guards, along with his wife Ri Sol Ju, center, during a military parade in Pyongyang, Thursday, Feb. 8 2018.

Kim Jong Un has gone out of his way to make sure the North will hold attention throughout the games.Following a last-minute proposal during Kim’s annual New Year’s address, North Korea is sending 22 athletes to compete in the Olympics and a delegation of more than 400 musicians, singers, martial artists and members of a cheering group to the games.Kim is also dispatching his younger sister, Kim Yo Jong, to attend the opening ceremony. That in itself is a major development — she is one of his closest confidants, holds a senior party position and her trip would mark the first time any member of the ruling Kim family has visited the South since the Korean War. She will meet South Korean President Moon Jae-in at a luncheon, Moon’s spokesman said Thursday.The North’s conciliatory moves related to the Olympics have generally been welcomed in the South. The parade, however, was seen as more sensitive.Though possibly best known for their legions of goose-stepping troops, North Korean military parades are the country’s primary means of showing off its most recent advances in military technology — sometimes with aspirational mock-ups.The North unveiled five new kinds of missiles at its most recent major military parade last April.
