According to figures provided by the UN mission, as of 4 May, approximately 170,000 Greek Cypriots had crossed from south to north while 75,000 Turkish Cypriots had done the reverse trip.”We are very pleased that Greek Cypriots and Turkish Cypriots are crossing the buffer zone, and that people are patiently enduring the practical inconveniences which have put a strain on both sides, as well as on the UN mission there,” a UN spokesman, Fred Eckhard, said at a press briefing in New York.Describing the flow of people across the buffer zone as proceeding “without major political problems” or serious incidents, the spokesman said, “nevertheless, with several traffic accidents and arrests related mainly to crossing, the mission has been working around the clock to make the crossing facilities smoother and more efficient.”Yesterday, UNFICYP Chief Zbigniew Wlosowicz met Greek Cypriot leader Tassos Papadopoulos, and is meeting today with Turkish Cypriot leader Rauf Denktash to share information and exchange views on the current situation, Mr. Eckhard added.”While freedom of movement would be a key element in any settlement, it must be lasting, and in any case all the other core issues remain,” he stressed. read more
“I’m not a smoker. I just have a few cigarettes when I’m at a party or when I’m trying to relax on the weekend.”“Yeah, I smoke sometimes, but I’ll quit later, after I get my degree.”“I’m a smoker and I know I need to stop, but it’s really tough and I don’t know how to do it.”For these young adults, health researcher Kelli-an Lawrance and her colleagues at the Leave The Pack Behind program are offering a daring way to kick off the new year.It’s a six-week contest, opening Jan. 25, that challenges participants to change their smoking behaviours at various levels. Registration for the contest closes at midnight on Jan. 24.“We’re giving people a really powerful trigger and motivator to quit,” says Lawrance, associate professor in Brock’s Department of Health Sciences. “They can win big money prizes and know they’re with a community of other people who are trying to quit at the same time as them.”There are four categories in the wouldurather contest: Quit for Good (stop smoking altogether); Keep the Count (cut smoking by 50 per cent); Party Without the Smoke (cut out smoking when drinking alcohol); and Don’t Start and Win (non-smokers and ex-smokers staying smoke free).“Up to 20 per cent of those entering the contest will go on to quit smoking for good, depending on the category they enter,” explains Leave The Pack Behind manager Heather Travis. “They’re building their confidence in themselves and in their skills and seeing that they can quit tobacco.”The contest is one of many tools that researchers and staff use in the Leave The Pack Behind program, a province-wide tobacco control initiative started by Brock University that offers young adults smoking and quitting information, resources and personalized support.Lawrance and two colleagues, Melodie Shick Porter, Director Student Health Services, and Sharon Lawler, Niagara Public Health, created Leave The Pack Behind in the bad old days when cigarettes were sold on university and college campuses, student residences had smoking and non-smoking rooms, and so-called “cigarette girls” peddled smokes at campus pub events sponsored by tobacco companies.Students at Brock University in 1969 can be seen working near ashtrays in this archive photo.Lawrance devised a plan in which student research teams, peer educators and doctors and nurses on post-secondary campuses would help students reduce, eliminate or avoid tobacco use.With a modest grant from the Ontario Ministry of Health, Lawrance reached out to five other post-secondary institutions to launch the Leave The Pack Behind Program in 2000.Sixteen years later, with funding close to $1 million annually, Leave The Pack Behind is found on every university and college campus and in 36 public health units across Ontario. All young adults from 18-29 years old are able to access, at no charge, such resources as a series of Quit Smoking booklets, programs and tips on the website, counselling and, while supplies last, nicotine gum and patches. Social media and smoke-free policies are also used to support smoke-free living.But Leave The Pack Behind is not just a service. The program is also a platform for Lawrance’s ongoing research on how and why young adult smokers quit, what strategies they prefer, the outcomes of these strategies, and whether health professionals support smoking cessation among older teens and young adults.One discovery in Lawrance’s research, for example, is that when health professionals ask young people if they are smokers, many young people answer that they are not, when in fact they smoke during parties, in pubs or other situations.“We were missing many, many opportunities to intervene with people who smoke,” says Lawrance, adding that in subsequent medical education sessions, health care professionals were encouraged to ask young adults, “do you ever smoke cigarettes” instead of, “are you a smoker?”She and her research team also found that most campus physicians ask their patients about their smoking, but few provide identified smokers with support for quitting. Also, many young adults believe that their smoking is just a temporary phase that they can end fairly easily. Most young adult smokers say they want to quit.Regarding interventions, “mostly what we find is that people just want to quit on their own,” says Lawrance. “They really want to take the little booklets, they want to read the booklets, get the information online and quit.”The Canadian Tobacco, Alcohol and Drugs Survey reports that about 11 per cent of 15 to 19 year olds and 18 per cent of 20 to 24 year olds were smokers in 2013.Nationally, in 2014, 18.1 per cent of Canadians aged 12 and older, roughly 5.4 million people, smoked either daily or occasionally, says Statistics Canada.But there’s good news concerning young adults. Statistics Canada notes that, “in 2014, 55 per cent of Canadians aged 20 to 24 had never smoked which is significantly higher than the 39 per cent of 20 to 24 year olds who never smoked in 2001.” read more
Tiger Woods’ play has been hard to swallow — for him and his fans. The hope is that the food at his upcoming new restaurant will be easier to digest.Woods moved to Jupiter after his divorce a few years ago. He plans to open his first restaurant in his new home at Harbourside: The Woods Jupiter: Sports and Dining Club, a $150 million entertainment complex opening this fall.An opening date has not been set, but it’s likely The Woods Jupiter will open its doors in early 2015.“I envision a place where people can meet friends, watch sports on TV and enjoy a great meal,” Woods said in a statement. “I wanted to build it locally where I live and where it could help support the community.”The 5,900-square-foot restaurant will have a “prime location” in the new development, next to the amphitheater and marina. It’ll include outdoor seating and also have its own valet roundabout to accommodate patrons, developer Nick Mastroianni II told the Palm Beach Post.“I couldn’t be more excited to have Tiger’s new establishment operating within Harbourside Place,” said Mastroianni, president and CEO of Allied Capital and Development of South Florida. “It’s gratifying to see the final stages met with support from local, national and international organizations such as Mr. Woods.”Woods said he’s had his eye on Harbourside Place for more than two years and called it “the perfect location” for his restaurant.“I look forward to enjoying my restaurant as much as I hope the public will,” Woods said.The plan also calls for two five-story parking garages with about 950 spaces, a 600-seat outdoor amphitheater, a public-private marina, a water taxi stop and access to Riverwalk, the town’s 2.4-mile pedestrian and bicycle path from Ocean Way north to the Jupiter Inlet. read more
And it accuses the Government of stalling or going backwards in efforts to tackle “alarming” failings… The report by the Royal College of Paediatrics and Child Health calls for curbs on advertising of unhealthy foods before the watershed, and action to stop fast food outlets opening near schools. Senior paediatricians last night said millions of families were stuck in “a terrible destructive cycle” which would cut lives short by decades, as they called for sweeping measures to reduce Britain’s consumption of junk food. Children are being doomed to an early death by their lifestyles – with four in five obese school pupils destined to remain dangerously overweight for life, a damning report warns.

Let’s say you’ve looked at our side-by-side comparisons with the Nook Tablet, and have decided to go with the Kindle Fire as your tablet of choice this holiday season. Maybe you know that you can stream some video to it, but don’t know much more than that. Which service or services will give you the best bang for your buck?The three most prominent video streaming services on the Fire are going to be Amazon’s Prime service, Netflix, and Hulu Plus. Each brings something a little different to the table, but there will be one clear choice for most people. Let’s look at how the three compare in the key categories: content, accessibility, and price.ContentOne of the first things you’re going to be wondering about is each service’s content selection. Each company has hammered out their own deals with Hollywood studios and premium cable networks, so you’ll be getting a different library with each service.The content library of Netflix is as good as you’ll find, and leans much more towards movies than Hulu does. There are also plenty of complete older television seasons available (just don’t expect to see any current seasons). The company describes their library as carrying “thousands” of movies and TV episodes available to watch instantly. A lot of that is junk that no sober person would ever watch, but there is also a decent selection of quality titles–including some that have only recently been released on Blu-ray/DVD.If you’ve ever watched anything on Hulu, you’ll know that the company is almost entirely focused on current-run network television. They have expanded their services within the last couple of years to include movies, but that selection is minimal compared to the other two services. For this reason, Hulu Plus is probably more of a complementary service to Netflix than a true rival.That brings us to Amazon Prime, which has a decent–but somewhat confusing–selection. While Amazon Instant Video has a massive iTunes-esque selection of content to rent or buy, the buffet of streaming content for Prime customers is sparse. They promise “thousands” of titles, but at this point Netflix’s library is much stronger.We created a sampling of top-grossing and award-winning movies and television shows across the three services. As you will see, none of the subscriptions is going to give you a lot of choice in these departments.1. Recent Best Picture Academy Award winners: 3. The last five Top Grossing Films of the Year: 2. Older Best Picture Academy Award winners: 4. Current Award-winning TV shows (only Hulu will have current season):Perhaps the biggest thing that the above comparisons tells us is that the more successful something is, the less likely it is to show up for streaming. Hollywood knows what content it can sell on its own, and these streaming services are more likely to give you leftovers than main entrées.However, when you look at the three libraries as a whole, Netflix does have the best overall selection. While they don’t have Avatar, The King’s Speech, or The Dark Knight, you will still find popular titles like Iron Man 2, Star Trek (2009), and Tron: Legacy. Neither Hulu Plus nor Amazon Prime can boast of that.AccessibilityAnother big factor to consider is the other devices that you will be able to watch your content on. All three services are available on a variety of platforms, but some are currently more far-reaching than others.One of Netflix’s biggest strengths is accessibility. If you’re going to watch on something other than just your Kindle Fire, Netflix can also be streamed to video game consoles, select integrated TVs, set-top boxes, smartphones, other tablets, and PCs. You will want to double check the specific devices you’re looking for before subscribing, but the list of supported hardware is a big advantage.Hulu Plus can also be accessed on a lot of different devices. Its content can be viewed on gaming consoles, connected TVs, smartphones, tablets, and more. Of course Hulu’s website can be accessed by any Flash-running desktop web browser (it’s blocked on mobile devices).Accessibility is another area where Amazon Prime comes up short. It can be viewed on PCs and select integrated TVs, but not on gaming consoles. The Kindle Fire is also the only mobile device that Prime streaming is currently compatible with.PriceFor streaming alone, Netflix will ring you up $7.99 per month. That comes out to $95.88 a year. You can cancel anytime, and if you’ve never tried Netflix before, you can get a full month’s free trial before paying up.Hulu Plus is priced identically to Netflix, at $7.99 per month ($95.88 annually). Like Netflix, you aren’t bound to anything beyond the month you’ve already paid for. Unfortunately, even though you are paying almost $100/yr., you will still have to watch commercials for most content. If you’re a new subscriber, you can get a one-week free trial with Hulu Plus.Amazon Prime costs $79 per year, and must be paid in one lump annual sum. However, streaming is only part of the package with Prime. You also get free two-day shipping on applicable orders from Amazon (most items that aren’t from a third-party reseller), and you can borrow one free eBook per month. Customers who purchase the Fire get a month-long free trial of Amazon Prime.Summing UpMany Kindle Fire owners will likely gravitate towards Amazon Prime for streaming, as it’s featured so prominently in the tablet’s UI. Unfortunately, it has a sub-par content library, the least amount of devices supported, and requires you to pay for a full year up front. If you’re getting Prime for the Amazon shipping discounts, then look at the streaming as a nice little bonus. Otherwise, you’d be wise to stay away.Hulu Plus is a great service for those who want to watch the latest episodes of network TV shows, but not for anyone else. The selection of cable programs isn’t particularly impressive, and the movie library is hardly worth mentioning. Having to watch commercials on a service that you’re already paying for certainly doesn’t help matters.Netflix easily has the strongest library, it’s streamable on many other devices, and you can pay month-by-month. None of these services will give you the cream of Hollywood’s crop, but it comes the closest. For this reason, Netflix is going to be the best streaming value for most Kindle Fire owners. read more

A mic and call/playback controls are built-in to the 600vi for ease of use and will work on your iPod or iPhone. On the audio side, you will wonder what took you so long to ditch those cruddy earbuds. Reviews place the 600vi’s on a pedestal for excellent sound quality under $100.This deal will get you the acclaimed 600vi headset, but take the price down to just $59.99 shipped. That is $14 cheaper than the next best price from a reputable retailer and the lowest price we have seen yet.Visit LogicBuy for the Logitech Ultimate Ears 500vi deal read more

Image: Eamonn Farrell/Rollingnews.ie 2011 – 226 patient discharges where their address was listed as “no fixed abode”2012 – 2472013 – 2322014 – 4482015 – 4352016 – 3352017 – 343 Overall, this adds up to 2,266 patient discharges over this seven-year period where the patient listed their address as no fixed abode when leaving hospital.The figures were released to Sinn Féin’s health spokesperson Louise O’Reilly. She told TheJournal.ie that health is a significant factor for those who are homeless.“Health needs have to be addressed in tandem with housing,” she said. “You cannot treat someone’s health needs only to discharge them onto the street, inevitably their problems will recur and escalate because they do not have a roof over their head.”Pilot schemeThe HSE has already sought to identify the particular challenges facing homeless people when leaving hospital, providing the funding for a pilot project to develop an approach and finalise a protocol that would address the specific needs of such patients.Dr Clíona Ní Cheallaigh is an infectious diseases and internal medicine physician at St James’s Hospital. This pilot project is being initially rolled out at St James’s and the Mater Hospital in Dublin.She told TheJournal.ie that official stats in this area do not paint a full picture.“It’s much higher than that,” Dr Ní Cheallaigh said. “We’d often have cases where someone who is homeless will give an old address. Or you’ll have people giving the hostel they’re in as an address.”She said that the HSE funding would go some way to create a coordinated method of providing healthcare tailored towards those who are homeless.The physician said: “People who are homeless can often be really sick, and being homeless can make their illness worse.It’s basic things. There was one man recently who had cirrhosis. He was staying in a hostel which was closed during the day. He wasn’t taking the tablets he was prescribed because he had no access to a toilet during the day. A NEW SCHEME funded by the HSE will aim to improve the healthcare and supports offered to homeless people when they present to hospitals for treatment.It comes as new statistics show that there were over 2,000 cases where homeless people were discharged from Irish hospitals over a seven-year period. Doctors say that due to the way the stats are calculated, this figure could be far greater while opposition TDs have said the HSE and Department of Health need to roll out effective outreach and after care services for homeless people upon leaving hospitals.No fixed abodeIn a parliamentary question, Minister Simon Harris was asked the number of patient discharges from hospitals in which they were discharged to no fixed address, i.e. homeless.The query was referred to the HSE, which provided details on the numbers of patients discharged for each year from 2011 to 2017 who provided “no fixed abode” as their area of residence. Data for 2018 is not yet confirmed.The numbers do not definitively indicate the exact number of homeless people who were discharged from hospital, as the numbers could indicate repeat cases.The numbers rise over time before plateauing and falling again. St James’s is one of the hospitals trialling the scheme. 5 Comments Short URL Mar 9th 2019, 11:00 AM Image: Eamonn Farrell/Rollingnews.ie 10,103 Views Saturday 9 Mar 2019, 11:00 AM ‘It’s about creating a system that’s kind’: HSE piloting scheme for homeless patients in hospitals It comes as new stats show over 2,000 cases where a homeless person has been discharged from hospital in the past seven years. Dr Ní Cheallaigh said the pilot scheme was about ensuring that homeless people requiring healthcare are given it in a dignified manner, and offered the right supports when they exit the healthcare system.“We’ve a multi-disciplinary team,” she said. “We aim to find the right place to discharge them. We meet with those who run the hostels in Merchants’ Quay, and the doctors and nurses they interact with. It’s about everybody talking to each other to try to get the best results we can.”The physician said such a coordinated response is needed due to the complex and complicated needs that this portion of the population has. When a person presents in an emergency department who is homeless, the scheme will see them referred to this team where they can put the correct supports in place.They also provide items such as toothbrushes, toothpaste, shaving cream and razors so that people have the chance to bathe. “It’s all about treating people they way they should be,” Ní Cheallaigh added. “People may feel ashamed that they are homeless. They may feel ashamed over an addiction, or over abuse they’ve previously suffered.There hasn’t been a coordinated approach before. There’s been good practice, but it’s just about pulling that together. People are kind. But it’s about creating a system that’s kind. I hope we can roll this out nationwide in the future.

Argentina boss Jorge Sampaoli believes that Lionel Messi cannot be compared with Cristiano Ronaldo due to the lack of quality within their squadThe Barcelona superstar was adrift for much of the match as Argentina fell to a disastrous 3-0 defeat to Croatia on Thursday with his only shot in the game being a half-chance where he snatched the ball at a rebound from a Maximiliano Meza shot, which was later blocked by Danijel Subasic.It comes in stark contrast to last Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Iceland that saw Messi fail to score after having 11 shots at goal, which also included a missed penalty.While Messi has failed to score after 12 shots, his rival Ronaldo has been in stunning form for Portugal and he has already netted four goals in his first two games of the World Cup.But Sampaoli believes that it is not fair to compare the duo to due the differences in quality between both Argentina and Portugal.Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“Ronaldo is an excellent player, you can look at all he has achieved in his career,” said Sampaoli, according to Goal.“Right now, we shouldn’t compare these two players. With the reality of the Argentina squad, it sort of clouds Leo’s brilliance.“He’s limited because the team doesn’t gel with him ideally, as it should. As coaches, we need to deal with this.“I’ve always looked for the best position for my players on the pitch. The playmaker carries a special burden. We didn’t manage to find link-ups that would benefit Argentina and Leo.”Argentina’s final Group D game will be against Nigeria at the Saint Petersburg Stadium on June 26 at 20:00 (GMT +2). read more
Here’s the most interesting fish report of the week: A single, large mature male smelt was caught during juvenile sturgeon studies in the Kalama area of the Columbia River.A year ago, there was a big smelt run in the lower Columbia and Cowlitz. However, all sport and commercial smelt fisheries remain closed.Salmon fishing has slowed in the Columbia at the mouth of the Klickitat River, but was good for coho in the stream itself.The Lewis and Cowlitz still continue to produce some coho.The Kalama and Cowlitz were high and muddy on Wednesday, although dropping. The Cowlitz at Castle Rock on Wednesday was 18,700 cubic feet per second compared to a normal of 9,600 for the date. The Washougal peaked at almost 5,000 cubic feet per second on Tuesday night and had dropped to 2,000 by late afternoon on Wednesday.Kalama Falls Hatchery had a return of 13 wild winter steelhead and one hatchery fish through last week.Angler checks from the Washington (WDFW) and Oregon (ODFW) departments of Fish and Wildlife:Mid-Columbia — Bonneville pool, 22 boaters with three adult coho kept.

More than three-quarters (79%) of millennial respondents believe that receiving benefits would make them more loyal to the organisation they work for, according to research by BrightHR.The It pays to play study, which surveyed 2,023 people, also found that 45% of 16-25 year old respondents receive workplace reward and benefits outside of pay, compared to 22% of respondents aged between 55 and 60.The research also found:75% of respondents aged between 16 and 25 would work harder if they were offered more benefits, compared to 50% of respondents aged between 55 and 60.80% of 16-25 year old respondents rate workplace perks as very or moderately important.29% of 45-55 year old respondents are more interested in financial bonuses than benefits such as a company car or staff parties.Paul Tooth, co-founder and chief executive officer at BrightHR, said: “The findings show that bosses in the UK have their work cut out making sure they have a team of fulfilled individuals, when the different generations have such contrasting motivations.“Millennials expect to work longer hours, and they want more from work as a result. For the baby boomer or generation X this could be a very daunting environment to be starting a new role, surrounded by younger peers who accept longer hours.“The different generations offer a diverse range of skills which, when nurtured and well managed, can be very complimentary and form a strong team. When it comes to rewarding a multi-generational team, a bespoke approach is best. Businesses should offer employees a choice of rewards. Allowing teams to choose personalised rewards shows that their management are listening to their needs.” read more

Some of the birds were sucked into its engines, it added. The emergency landing took place in a field less than a kilometer (0.62 miles) away from the airport’s runway. Videos posted to social media show the passengers of flight U6178 evacuating from the plane and making a path through the field. In one video, a female passenger walking through the tall green stalks can be heard saying “second birth,” noting that she was lucky to just be alive.

Yusupov has clocked up more than 3,000 flight hours, the airline said. He graduated with honors in 2013 from St. Petersburg State University of Civil Aviation and was hired by the company immediately after graduating. Advertise With Us Murzin graduated from the same university in 2017, was hired last year, and has a total of 600 flying hours, it said. In a video posted on Russian social media platform VKontakte, Murzin detailed how the pair managed to bring the plane down safely. “After takeoff, birds got caught in the engines, with the left engine stalling immediately,” Murzin said. “Then they got caught in the second engine and it became unstable, and also stalled. There wasn’t enough thrust, and we lost altitude. We landed in a field manually — the commander took control,” he added. Up to 55 passengers, including 17 children, have been given medical attention, Russian state news agency TASS reported, citing a source in the regional Center for Disaster Medicine. Six have been hospitalized, it said. In a statement, Ural Airlines said that the plane had been significantly damaged and would not be in service in the future, TASS reported. read more
Humans usually steer clear when an industrial robot is doing it’s thing building objects or moving heavy equipment. It’s just safer that way. But French designers Pierre Emm and Johan da Silveira figured if a robot arm was accurate enough to assemble things, it could probably hold a tattoo machine. The pair embarked on a quest to turn an industrial robot into a tattoo artist and captured the process on video.This project was undertaken as part of an artistic residency at Pier 9 in San Francisco. Emm and da Silveira previously made a similar modification to a Makerbot 3D printer in the past, but the extruder in that device can’t move as freely as the robot arm used this time. Of course, it was also not as dangerous. The artists worked with Autodesk’s applied research laboratory to make the robotic tattoo happen. Before anyone was getting inked, the team had to investigate the safety aspect, which was largely unexplored. People just don’t interact in such an intimate fashion with industrial robots.With some standards in place, Emm was strapped in to undergo tattooing. Really, his leg was restrained quite securely. The team took a 3D scan of his leg to give the robot precise positioning information, so he couldn’t really move around after that. A human tattoo artist can adjust to subtle movements, but not a robot.The robot arm was able to draw a tight spiral line on Emm’s leg. The robot did it all in a single line, so you can see toward the end of the spiral that it was running low on ink. It was probably too complicated to have the robot stop mid-line and pick up more ink like a human would. Still, the tattoo looks very precise. With a few modifications, a robot arm could probably produce some nice geometric tattoos. read more
