Apldeap Announces Partnership with The Vision Center at Childrens Hospital Los Angeles

first_imgThe Apl.de.ap Foundation International, the charity established by apl.de.ap of the Grammy Award-winning group, Black Eyed Peas, and The Vision Center at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles, the leading center for the care of children with complex eye diseases, are launching a partnership to prevent blindness in newborns.The “Campaign for Filipino Children” is a two-year initiative that will provide a sustainable approach to the diagnosis and treatment of a pediatric eye affliction in premature babies that is a widespread medical and economic concern in the Philippines.Apl.de.ap, a Filipino-American musical artist who suffers from an eye ailment and is considered legally blind, has pledged to raise approximately $650,000 in part through a series of concerts. The first event takes place Sunday, June 8 at the Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, where he will be joined by will.i.am and Taboo to raise funds for the campaign as well as the rebuilding efforts in the Philippines after Typhoon Haiyan. A second concert at Agua Caliente’s 2014 Summer Extravaganza in Palm Springs, Calif. is set for August 16 where a key raffle prize is a 2014 racing red Ford Mustang. Additionally, lead campaign sponsor Western Union has committed $150,000 to the effort, and the public will be able to make donations to support the campaign via www.ForFilipinoChildren.com (site goes live on 6.5.14).Visit www.greektheatrela.com/events or www.hotwatercasino.com for more event information.Every year, at least ten percent of all premature births in the Philippines are caused in part by the relative deficient prenatal care available to the poor, and at least thirty percent of those develop retinopathy, a disease that causes abnormal blood vessel growth in the retina. If not treated within 48 hours of diagnosis, these premature babies become permanently blind.Most medical practitioners and hospitals in the Philippines do not have the training or equipment to recognize, diagnose and treat the affliction to prevent blindness. The campaign intends to enter into four pilot hospital partnerships in the Philippines, who will undergo extensive medical training from Thomas Lee, MD, division chief of The Vision Center at Children’s Hospital Los Angeles and his team of specialists, who will also supply retinal imaging systems called RetCams to assist in diagnosis. By training at least six to ten medical practitioners in four hospitals, more than 4,000 babies can be saved from blindness caused by retinopathy of prematurity every year.Dr. Lee and his team have previously executed a similar multi-year program to address retinopathy of prematurity in Armenia under the auspices of USAID Armenia.Source:BusinessWire.comlast_img read more

How Iskwé Serena Ryder and other women are changing the Canadian music

first_imgAdvertisement Twitter Login/Register With: Facebook The Juno Award-winning singer-songwriter of “Stompa” and “What I Wouldn’t Do” has toured extensively since her teens, and has seen a lot of changes in the industry in the last three years.“The thing I find completely different right now is that there is much more of a sense of community,” she says. “When I started touring, it felt like being a woman in rock was me against the world. My survival strategy was becoming one of the boys. I was really good at drinking. I felt like I had to be strong all the time and never show my emotions. It’s only when I started having more relationships with other women my age in the art community, my life got much better.” LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Advertisement There’s never been a shortage of famous and successful Canadian woman in music. Anne, Joni, Buffy, k.d., Shania, Alanis, Celine, Feist, Alessia – A-list stars and global ambassadors for Canadian creativity across all genres. But recently, campaigns like #MeToo and #JunoSoMale have shone a light on the inequalities that many women still face behind the scenes, and renewed a desire for change.While Canadian Music Week is gathering industry players in Toronto this week, we’ve gathered seven women who are thriving in their fields, and using their voices to make things better for other female performers in the studio, on the road, in music videos and the boardroom.Being a woman in rock was me against the world.

Darfur remains tense after recent eruption of fighting UN reports

“The situation on the ground is still very fluid and very confusing,” Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Edmond Mulet told reporters afterwards. “You have actions from the JEM [the rebel Justice and Equality Movement], you have actions from SLA/MM [Sudan Liberation Army/ Minni Minawi – another rebel group], you have actions from the Government, fighting each other, so it is very complex.“The problem here is that they have chosen right now to follow the path of confrontation and war instead of negotiations,” he said of the conflict between rebels and the Government and allied Janjaweed militiamen that has led to an estimated 300,000 deaths since 2003 and forced 2.7 million people to flee their homes. “We do hope that the Council will call on all parties to stop these military actions and to abide by the respect of humanitarian laws and the respect of civilians who have been the recent victims again of this fighting,” he added.The joint African Union-UN mission in Darfur (UNAMID) reported today that two of its camps in South Darfur continued to face an increase in the number of civilians seeking refuge as a result of recent clashes. Joint UN-AU Special Representative Rodolphe Adada told UN staff at mission headquarters in El Fasher following recent fighting in North and South Darfur that UNAMID will continue its mandated operations of protecting civilians, ensuring that humanitarian assistance is provided to those in need and finding a political solution to the crisis.Aerial bombing and artillery fire erupted for a second day yesterday on the outskirts of El Fasher in North Darfur, with Government assaults some nine kilometres from the city seeking to clear the area of advancing rebels. 28 January 2009A senior United Nations peacekeeping official briefed the Security Council today on Sudan’s war-ravaged Darfur region, where the security situation remains tense following fighting between various rebel groups and the Government. read more

Review of mandates given to UN can help it function better –

In a bid to streamline and strengthen the day-to-day work of the United Nations Secretary-General Kofi Annan today presented its Member States with a report on the mandates they have entrusted to the world body over the years.“This is not a call for the United Nations to do less, though that might be one result,” he told the General Assembly. “It is a call for it to do better.”He said the review “could have a lasting impact not only on what we do, but on how we do it.”The decision to conduct the review, which was taken by national leaders attending the 2005 World Summit at the UN, “was one of the most meaningful and potentially historic” of the session, Mr. Annan said, while cautioning that the process poses a “daunting challenge.”In order to facilitate the work of Member States the UN has set up a searchable electronic registry of still-active mandates originating from the resolutions of the General Assembly, the Security Council and the Economic and Social Council.“The review of mandates is a unique opportunity to strengthen and adapt our Organization to the priorities of today,” the Secretary-General told delegates. “I am sure you will not fail to seize it.” read more

Football Urban Meyers press conference reveals Browning injury Campbell at Hback and

OSU coach Urban Meyer is interviewed during media day on Dec. 29. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Photo EditorOhio State coach Urban Meyer announced that freshman linebacker Baron Browning underwent shoulder surgery and will miss a couple months, which included the rest of spring practice. He said Browning should be back to 100 percent by June, which would make him ready for fall camp.Tuesday was Meyer’s first time speaking to the media in three weeks. Here are three takeaways from the press conference.InjuriesIncluding Browning’s shoulder, the Buckeyes are currently dealing with three other injuries and an academic issue.Meyer said redshirt sophomore defensive tackle DaVon Hamilton broke his foot a couple practices ago and will be “full speed soon.” Sophomore running back Antonio Williams and sophomore defensive end Jonathon Cooper are both sidelined with hamstring injuries. Cooper was seen jogging on the sideline with redshirt senior tight end Marcus Baugh who underwent offseason shoulder surgery. Williams was not seen at practice.Redshirt freshman tight end Kierre Hawkins is “taking care of some academic stuff,” Meyer said.Cooper and Hamilton were in the second-string rotation on the defensive line in spring practice. Hamilton played in all 13 games and had 2.5 tackles for loss, while Cooper played in six.Running back depth chartIt appears freshman running back J.K. Dobbins has taken advantage of Williams’ injury and has made the most of his decision to enrol early at OSU. Meyer said Dobbins is the No. 2 running back right now, behind starter redshirt sophomore Mike Weber. Meyer added that Dobbins and sophomore Demario McCall are battling for the second spot on the depth chart at running back.Dobbins — listed at 5-foot-10, 208 pound — joined a youthful running back group, with every player having three years of eligibility left. But it seems that it hasn’t taken long for the Texas native to impress his position coach Tony Alford, Meyer and the rest of the offensive staff.Meyer even said that Weber is being pushed quite a bit by Dobbins.“The best thing that can happen is competition and we didn’t have much last year at that position.”Wide receivers making stridesLast season, the wide receiver position was perhaps the most underwhelming position on the field for the Buckeyes. Already this spring, Meyer has seen great improvements, saying he’s somewhat impressed with the development of the group.“I put Parris (Campbell) No. 1,” he said. “I put K.J. (Hill) and Terry McLaurin either (No.) 2 slash (No.) 3. I put Ben Victor — he’s as talented as any I have ever coached — and then Austin Mack. Johnnie Dixon is having a good spring. Brendon White is actually making good plays for us. And Eric Glover-Williams, we just got to get everything in order. He’s real skinny. We just got to develop him because he’s got talent.”Campbell and Hill were primarily working out of the slot, playing as the inside receiver, in the hour time frame the media was allowed to watch at Tuesday’s practice. Meyer said that the plan for now is to play Campbell as the H-back, filling in for the departed Curtis Samuel.Other notes:Meyer called the 10 early enrollees “maybe the best group that we’ve had come in.”Junior college transfer cornerback Kendall Sheffield had his black stripe removed. He was practicing against the first-string receivers in 7-on-7 drills on Tuesday.Redshirt sophomore offensive lineman Matt Burrell has been practicing with the first team. Redshirt junior Demetrius Knox is also practicing with first team.Justin Hilliard went back to practicing with the linebackers after undergoing shoulder surgery in late September. read more

Army to Launch Pilot Linking Active Reserve Components

first_imgThe Army this summer will launch a pilot initiative formally linking active-duty units with those in the Army Reserve and Army National Guard that allows them to train together before deployment.“Much of America’s Army capacity is resident in the reserve components and we must rely more heavily on them to meet the demands of a complex global environment,” Chief of Staff Gen. Mark Milley said in a news release. “The associated units pilot allows us to leverage the capabilities and capacities of the active component, Army Reserve and the Army National Guard as one Army.”The first units to be paired are Task Force 1-28 Infantry, an infantry battalion stationed at Fort Benning, Ga., and the 48th Infantry Brigade Combat Team of the Georgia Army National Guard. The brigade also will be associated with the active component’s 3rd Infantry Division stationed at Fort Stewart, Ga.“This brigade will train and, if called to do so, deploy and fight with the 3rd Infantry Division as an associated unit,” said Lt. Gen. Timothy Kadavy, director of the Army National Guard. “These units will develop relationships and standards in home station so they may fight together in combat without having to meet on the battlefield and figure these things out.”The associated units pilot will begin in June, with current plans calling for the Army to test the concept for three years before transitioning to full implementation in 2019, said spokesman Troy Rolan.There will be 12 pairs of associated units in the Army’s initial group, including infantry, engineer and sustainment units, reported Army Times.The pilot will require participating Guard and Reserve units to conduct up to 15 additional days of training each year, Rolan said.“The goal is not to achieve the same readiness as an [active component] unit, but rather to sustain higher readiness to reduce post-mobilization training requirements when activated,” he said.

Stebbins teenager arrested for stabbing teen from St Michael

first_imgAn Alaska State Trooper cruiser parked on Nome’s Front Street in January 2015. (Photo by Matthew F. Smith/ KNOM)Alaska State Troopers are investigating the stabbing of a St. Michael teenager by another teen from Stebbins.Nome troopers were notified of the stabbing — which occurred in Stebbins — just before 2 a.m. on Tuesday. They arrested 18-year-old Rylan Snowball on the pending charge of first-degree assault.“It’s not a whodunit case,” said Megan Peters, a troopers spokesperson. “We know who all the players are. However, people aren’t being very cooperative with us. So we have to work a little bit harder to put the case together so it moves forward. The victim essentially doesn’t want to be a victim.”Peters could not say whether the 19-year-old male victim was a friend or relative of Snowball’s, but she did say he was treated for multiple stab wounds by health aides at the Stebbins clinic.“Fortunately, the wounds were not life-threatening,” she said. “I don’t want to necessarily say they were superficial, but they didn’t significantly damage him in any way where his life was in jeopardy. He was treated within the community and released.”Although the victim hasn’t cooperated, Peters said the investigation is still ongoing as troopers interview other people and collect evidence to build a case against Snowball. She also said troopers have determined that alcohol was a factor in the incident.Snowball is currently being held at the Anvil Mountain Correctional Center in Nome and awaiting arraignment.last_img read more

We’re proud that many of the islands in which we operate are also making this shift to ensure that future generations can enjoy the beauty of the Caribbean.”The elimination of Styrofoam is particularly important in the Caribbean region, says Stewart, with its abundance of marine wildlife. Researchers have found plastic fragments including Styrofoam in 86% of all sea turtle species, 44% of all seabird species and 43% of all marine mammal species.More news:  Sunwing ready to launch Mazatlán-Quebec City direct this winter“Eliminating Styrofoam is yet another way we’re reducing our environmental footprint and improving the health of our Caribbean communities,” said Heidi Clarke, Executive Director of the Sandals Foundation. “Education is critical, and that’s where the Sandals Foundation comes in.
