Fewer Nova Scotians are smoking, yet more than half of us say weare overweight. Nearly all Nova Scotians have a family doctor,and more than 80 per cent are satisfied with the way health-careservices are provided. These are some of Nova Scotians’ views of their own health andtheir health-care system released today, Nov. 30, in a reportentitled A Measure of our Health and Health System. The report is part of a federal/provincial/territorial initiativethat takes a co-ordinated approach to reporting healthinformation. “Working with other governments across Canada to identify healthindicators makes good sense,” said Angus MacIsaac, Minister ofHealth. “This collaborative approach allows us the opportunity tolearn from each other and to help us better manage our healthsystem.” Nova Scotia is joining other provinces and territories inreleasing its report today. All reports will provide informationon common health indicators collected by Health Canada, and theCanadian Institute of Health Information. The Nova Scotia data suggests that while we still face challengesin our health and health care system, we are making progress. In 2003: 95 per cent of Nova Scotians aged 15 and over reported having a family doctor; 14 per cent to 26 per cent of Nova Scotians reported having difficulty accessing health information, health services or care at any time of the day; more than 80 per cent of Nova Scotians were satisfied with the way health-care services were provided; only 58 per cent of Nova Scotians aged 12 and over rated their health as very good or excellent; almost 10 per cent fewer Nova Scotians aged 12 and over reported being smokers than in 1994-95; more than half of Nova Scotians aged 18 and over (54 per cent) reported being overweight or obese; almost five per cent more Nova Scotians reported being moderately active to active than in 2001. This is the second report stemming from an agreement made bypremiers and the prime minister in 2000 to report on standardizedhealth indicators.”We believe that health decisions must be based on goodevidence,” said Mr. MacIsaac. “That is why we are sharing thisinformation with the public and our health partners. Nova Scotiais also investing in information management and informationtechnology initiatives so we can deliver better health care toNova Scotians.” For more health information, and the technical specifications ofthis federal/provincial/territorial project will be available onWednesday, Dec. 1, on the website at http://www.cihi.ca/comparable-indicators . Copies of Nova Scotia’s A Measure of Our Health andHealth System Report will be distributed to the district healthauthorities and the IWK Health Centre.

New Delhi: Rajya Sabha MP and senior Trinamool leader Manas Bhunia raised the pension-related issue of retired Kendriya Vidyalaya (KV) teachers who are not getting pensions ‘inspite of repeated appeals’.Bhunia said, attacking the government that on one side it has announced a pension scheme for shopkeepers or businessmen, but on the other side around 1,400 retired KV teachers are not getting pensions, which is their fundamental right. The centre is not addressing this issue. “1,400 teachers and staff of Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan, who joined before January 1, 1986, are not getting a pension… Many of them are suffering from life-threatening diseases, poverty, neuralgia etc. in spite of their dedicated service,” he mentioned.

The Government of India vides their memo number 4187P ICI dated May 1, 1987, had given a cutoff date of September 30, 1987, to the employees for exercising their options in case they desired to continue to be governed by the CPF scheme. In case no such option was exercised by the deadline, all the employees were deemed to have come to CPF scheme of GoI. It was also made clear that no extension for exercising option for continuing in the CPF scheme will be admissible as per the Government rules from October 1, 1987. Also Read – Encounter under way in Pulwama, militant killedHe further alleged that the employees were completely in the dark about this. No one had submitted an option before the deadline. All employees were deemed to be covered in the CPF pension scheme. Bhunia further claimed that apart from the apex court, courts of Madras, Jodhpur, Delhi and Central Administrative Tribunals gave the order for grant of pension to some teachers who came to them for justice. While teachers who won their cases are getting pension, the others are not.
Fez – On Sunday of last week, the Moroccan National Debate Team had their first competition of the season. The consensus from the judges, debaters and observers? The team is in it to win it! In a four hour long debate tournament, six debaters (three from the “A” team and three from the “B” team) practiced the world school style of debate in a team-sponsored mini tournament. The mini-tournament served as an ice-breaker and an introduction between parents, students and coaches, brining together dedicated Moroccan debaters from Tangier, Marrakesh, Fez and Rabat.The two resolutions debated—one about banning skin whitening cream in Africa, the other about the nature of absolute versus relative morality—brought out passionate, personal stories from the debaters. Mohamed Bousfiha, who was on the team supporting the banning of skin-whitening creams, mentioned that skin whitening isn’t just an issue for abstract debate: “this is an issue that affects my mother, my sisters, and my future daughters. No woman, no matter her skin color, should ever feel anything less than beautiful, and no woman should ever feel that she should change her skin color just to look more like oppressive white beauty standards.” Strong, eloquent words from such a young man! The biggest surprise of the tournament was perhaps Rim Belkouadssi, the lone girl in a room full of boys. As the youngest, newest member of the team, (and the only team-member from a Moroccan, rather than from an American school) nobody knew quite what to expect from Rim. But she more than held her own, singlehandedly winning the second debate and racking up the highest speaker-score of the day.If Sunday’s debate is any indication, the Moroccan National Debate team is a very strong contender in Thailand’s international tournament this coming August.

In his latest report to the Security Council, Mr. Annan also highlighted increased violence in a province that has been run by the UN Interim Administration Mission in Kosovo (UNMIK) since 1999, when the North Atlantic Treaty Organization drove out Yugoslav troops amid human rights abuses in fighting between Serbs and Albanians.“I strongly urge Kosovo’s leaders to renew their efforts to ensure substantive, accelerated and sustainable progress in the implementation of the standards,” the Secretary-General said, referring to eight targets that also include creating a functioning economy and setting up an impartial legal system.“The increase in serious security incidents, including of incidents that may have targeted Kosovo Serbs for ethnic reasons, is a further cause for concern,” he cautioned, calling on the province’s leaders and institutions “to work closely with UNMIK to ensure that those responsible are brought to justice.”The Secretary-General also urged Serbian authorities to encourage Kosovo Serb leaders to take part in the province’s institutions, such as local government, and called for support to Kosovo Serbs who wished to return to the province, noting that the number of refugees and internally displaced people going back home remained “very low.”In this latest report, which covers the situation in the region from May to December last year, Mr. Annan also welcomed the Security Council’s decision to launch a process designed to determine the future status of Kosovo, but said there was much work to be done in this area.“The challenging period ahead will require the full political engagement of the international community,” the Secretary-General emphasized.Earlier this month, Kosovo President Ibrahim Rugova died of lung cancer, and in tribute, the senior UN envoy to the province urged its people to carry through with the late leader’s vision of unity and stability.Søren Jessen-Petersen stressed that the path laid out by Mr. Rugova “led – and still leads – towards a Kosovo that is democratic, multiethnic and free. A Kosovo that is firmly integrated into Europe, and which retains the strong links to the United States that he did so much to build.”

Redshirt-senior Hunter Callahan during a match against Northern Kentucky on Jan. 18 at the Varsity Tennis Center. OSU won, 7-0.Credit: Courtesy of OSU athleticsThe 7-0 Ohio State men’s tennis team is set to play the University of Kentucky on Thursday and coach Ty Tucker said the Buckeyes will be heading into the match with an almost year-old chip on their shoulders.“We’ve got to be ready for Kentucky. Last year we ended up losing at Kentucky in April … So obviously the guys are looking forward to getting another shot,” Tucker said.The No. 5 Buckeyes split matches last year against Kentucky, first winning in Columbus, 4-0, in February but then losing in Lexington, Ky., 4-1, on April 9.Redshirt-sophomore Ralf Steinbach said OSU wants to beat the Wildcats because of last season’s loss, but also to pick up its 199th home win in a row.“I’m very excited, same as the other guys on the team. Last time we played them at Kentucky we lost, so we really want to win and want to keep the streak alive,” Steinbach said.The matchup simply makes the team “more competitive,” Steinbach said.“You just have to be very focused and I think we are well prepared, just have a good day of practice today,” redshirt-junior Chris Diaz said Wednesday.Unlike OSU, Kentucky will be coming in to Columbus searching for momentum after starting the season off 2-4, but the Buckeyes are not underestimating the Wildcats.“They’re a very strong SEC team, usually always in the final six and battle for an SEC title,” Tucker said.The Wildcats’ record might not paint the most clear picture for the team, as all four of their losses came from teams inside the Intercollegiate Tennis Association’s top 30.“They’re a really good team and everyone who comes in here always has a lot of motivation to beat us,” Diaz said.OSU is coming off a weekend where it won the ITA kickoff weekend title for the seventh season in a row. The Buckeyes now get to advance to the ITA Indoor Team Championships, which is set to take place Feb. 13-16 in Chicago.The team plans on bringing that confidence boost with them for Thursday’s match, Diaz said.“Definitely helps we beat some good teams, got through some tough matches … but there are definitely a lot of tough challenges ahead,” he said.Although the tournament brings some confidence, coach Tucker said “it’s always a different day” when talking about bringing that momentum into the match against Kentucky.There is one player in particular who could be a huge weapon for OSU. Steinbach was named the Big Ten men’s tennis Athlete of the Week after going undefeated last week.“It was very surprising for me, I didn’t expect it and it’s a great honor,” Steinbach said.Steinbach went 10-0 and currently holds a team-best 14-3 singles and doubles record this season.
Redshirt-freshman defensive lineman Sam Hubbard (left) had 2 sacks in OSU’s annual Spring Game on April 18 at Ohio Stadium. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead / Lantern photographerA potentially overlooked aspect of Ohio State’s victory in the College Football Playoff was the performance of the Buckeyes’ defense.That unit allowed an average of just 18.3 points against Wisconsin in the Big Ten championship, Alabama in the Sugar Bowl and Oregon in the title game.It was the defense that held the Badgers scoreless and forced Alabama quarterback Blake Sims into throwing three interceptions. Against the Ducks on Jan. 12, it was the defense that held the high powered Oregon offense to just 20 points.An early step to getting back at that level was OSU’s Spring Game on Saturday. The Gray team, led by redshirt-junior quarterback Cardale Jones, defeated Scarlet, 17-14, in the annual intrasquad scrimmage.Coach Urban Meyer said postgame that at times it was “not a very pleasant scrimmage.”He did, however, acknowledge that a few individuals stuck out to him as having a good day.Among the standouts Meyer mentioned was defensive lineman Sam Hubbard was one of them.The redshirt-freshman had four tackles, including two sacks, as a member of Gray. Meyer said Hubbard will “be in the rotation” next fall.Hubbard has changed positions often since arriving in Columbus last year. Initially expected to play linebacker, he spent time at tight end as well before moving to the defensive line.With all uncertainty, it has taken some time for Hubbard to get comfortable, he said. But now that he is, Hubbard said he believes he is ready to go.“I’ve got an opportunity to really contribute,” he said. “Whenever my name is called, I’ll be ready to go, contribute, and make plays whenever I can.”Additionally, Hubbard credited defensive line coach Larry Johnson for his improvement. Hubbard said Johnson welcomed him “with open arms.”Along with Hubbard, Meyer said redshirt-sophomore cornerback Gareon Conley stood out throughout the spring.“Conley is penciled in now,” Meyer said. “We’re going to make the call to the family and say your son earned a right to start at Ohio State.”While Hubbard and Conley played well and impressed Meyer, the game’s leading tackler was freshman linebacker Nick Conner. Conner, an early enrollee from Dublin, Ohio, had seven tackles, and an interception, as well as a forced fumble.“He was good. We had high expectations for him, though,” Meyer said.Meyer said he hopes Conner does not redshirt in the fall so he can get “involved in the kicking game.”The Buckeyes are set to kick off their regular season Sept. 7 in Blacksburg, Va., against Virginia Tech.
Yesterday it was expected that Twitter would launch its own image service making it even simpler to include images with a tweet. At the same time, such a move would destroy the userbase of any 3rd party service offering Twitter users image uploads.Today, Twitter has indeed announced an image service integrated into the vanilla Twitter experience, but it isn’t doing it alone. Instead, Photobucket is being used to handle and store the images. From a user’s point of view, though, it shouldn’t matter who does it. The point is, Twitter just announced image upload functionality.While the image upload feature isn’t live yet, and won’t be for several weeks, an improved Twitter Search is. It promises to not only bring up more relevant result, but also images and videos alongside any text results. We assume this means if it brings up a tweet with an image in, or a link to a Twitter account, it will show images from that tweet or user as well.Finally, Twitter has also done a deal with Mozilla to offer Firefox with Twitter. Basically it adds Twitter to the search option in the browser via the address bar. You can either download the modified version, or just install the Twitter add-on for your existing version.Read more at the Twitter and TechCrunchMatthew’s OpinionPartnering with a service that already knows how to handle millions of images makes a lot of sense for Twitter. The fact it is integrated into the main service means most Twitter accounts will start using it. That in turn means a lot of data to deal with, and a real headache for Twitter on its own. With this partnership that headache is removed, and users will get a reliable image upload experience.You do have to feel a bit sorry for all the other services this will impact negatively, but then building your service around another is always going to run the risk of being made redundant eventually.

SEATTLE — Paul G. Allen, who co-founded Microsoft with his childhood friend Bill Gates before becoming a billionaire philanthropist who invested in conservation, space travel, arts and culture and professional sports, died Monday. He was 65.He died in Seattle from complications of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma, his company Vulcan Inc. announced.Gates said he was heartbroken about the loss of one of his “oldest and dearest friends.”“Personal computing would not have existed without him,” Gates said in a statement.“But Paul wasn’t content with starting one company. He channeled his intellect and compassion into a second act focused on improving people’s lives and strengthening communities in Seattle and around the world. He was fond of saying, ‘If it has the potential to do good, then we should do it,’” Gates wrote.Microsoft CEO Satya Nadella called Allen’s contributions to the company, community and industry “indispensable.”“As co-founder of Microsoft, in his own quiet and persistent way, he created magical products, experiences and institutions, and in doing so, he changed the world,” Nadella wrote on Twitter.Allen, an avid sports fan, owned the Portland Trail Blazers and the Seattle Seahawks.Allen and Gates met while attending a private school in north Seattle. The two friends would later drop out of college to pursue the future they envisioned: A world with a computer in every home.Gates so strongly believed it that he left Harvard University in his junior year to devote himself full-time to his and Allen’s startup, originally called Micro-Soft. Allen spent two years at Washington State University before dropping out as well.

Its population drops about half each year. The species’ range is about 1,500 square miles — the smallest of any marine mammal. Its territory overlaps with commercial fisheries that catch shrimp, curvina, chano and sierra, as well as illegal fishing operations that target the endangered totoaba. Dan Plante,
Weather Eye So this is summer without scorchers
I guess technically we are still in the dog days of summer but you certainly wouldn’t know it. My dog would usually be snuggled in the deep shade but she is still enjoying lying on the deck in the mid-afternoon sunshine. Maybe we could call it the “puppy days of summer”? Certainly most of the country is in the midst of hot and sultry days. It was too cloudy in most areas late Friday night for even a chance of viewing the northern lights — the best chance would have been in the Puget Sound region. I am still waiting for the first chorus of the crickets that usually appear this time of the year; perhaps they too may be a bit delayed as was our summer weather.And speaking about that, more morning clouds and afternoon sunshine with highs of 75-85 for the next week, depending on the intrusion of marine air. And so it goes. Summer is here and no rain in sight, keep the sprinkler going and if you are still looking for that first 90-degree day — well, keep on looking.July rainfallNormally I wouldn’t even mention local rainfall reports for July, but I will share a few just so you can see how much moisture fell on your yard and gardens last month. Usually to keep the grass green they say you want one inch of water per week as measured in a tuna can.Okay here we go: I measured 1.90 inches here in the Salmon Creek area; Judy Darke, Felida, 0.98 of an inch; Gary Collins, Brush Prairie; 1.29 inches; Irv St. Germain, S.W.

Last spring, Condé Nast tapped Smith, the former Elle publisher, to become vice president and publishing director of the Bon Appetit and Gourmet brands. She left in October, as Conde Nast was preparing to relaunch Gourmet as “Gourmet Live.” Details finished 2010 down 1.3 percent in ad pages while Bon Appetit was up 1.2 percent, according to Publishers Information Bureau. Get your org chart out for this one. Condé Nast has named new publishers at Bon Appetit and Details. Paul Jowdy, who had taken over as publisher of Bon Appetit after the departure of former publishing director Carol Smith last fall (Jowdy had also served as publisher prior to Smith’s arrival and transitioned to a different sales role while she was there), now takes over as executive vp and publisher of Details (Steven DeLuca was fired as publisher of Details last fall). Meanwhile, Pamela Drucker Mann, who was associate publisher, advertising for Glamour (and a former Condé Nast Salesperson of the Year winner) was named vice president and publisher of Bon Appetit.Both report to William Wackermann, executive vice president, publishing director of Bon Appetit, Details, Glamour and W.
Dillingham Aims To Reimpose Raw Fish Tax
Driftnet vessels in the Dillingham Harbor waiting on another push of sockeye.(Photo by Mike Mason, KDLG – Dillingham)Dillingham will try again on the fish tax. The City Council voted last week to send an annexation petition forward to the Alaska Local Boundary Commission to annex the Nushagak River Commercial Fishing District. The annexation was adopted by a local vote in 2012 but overturned by a court ruling.The city hopes to reimpose a 2.5 percent raw fish tax on the district, which is the only commercial fishing district in Bristol Bay that does not currently collect a tax for local use.Critics say Dillingham needs to find a way to share the tax with other Nushagak drainage communities, or focus on forming a borough.The city’s annexation petition will now be sent to the LBC for review. The city hopes it ends up in Juneau for a legislative review in 2016.
Rep. Ivy Spohnholz, D-Anchorage, speaks in support of House Bill 159, which is intended to reduce opioid overdose deaths. (Photo by Andrew Kitchenman/KTOO and Alaska Public Media)The House passed a bill Monday intended to reduce the number of deaths from overdoses of prescription opioids.Listen nowHouse Bill 159 would cut the number of days’ supply of opioid pills in a single prescription. The vote in favor was 25-8.Anchorage Democratic Rep. Ivy Spohnholz said the bill builds on recommendations from medical experts.“This bill is allowing us to introduce accountability for the role that prescription opioids have had in our explosive opioid epidemic,” Sphonholz said. “Addressing the opioid epidemic in the state of Alaska is going to take all of us.”The bill also would require prescribers to receive continuing education in pain management and opioid misuse.It would allow patients to have advance directives to stop providers from prescribing opioids when the patients are unconscious. And it would require veterinarians who write prescriptions to register with a statewide opioid database.Anchorage Republican Rep. Lance Pruitt said the medical industry and the boards that license providers had a chance to curb unnecessary use of opioids.“We allowed them that opportunity to make those decisions, and we haven’t seen action take place in the speed that we would like it to,” Pruitt said. “So here we are saying, it’s time for us to address it.”Opioid prescriptions are generally limited to 30 days. The bill would reduce that to seven days. Doctors and other providers could still provide more for specific reasons, such as for patients who can’t afford to travel to refill their prescriptions.Every Democrat and Independent member voted in favor of the bill, while Republicans were split.North Pole Republican Tammie Wilson said lawmakers are in a poor position to dictate to doctors how to do their jobs.“I’m not a doctor,” Wilson said. “I’m not convinced that seven days is the magic number that’s going to make everything better than what it is.”The bill is the only legislation that’s not related to the state budget that’s included in the special session that began on May 18.The Senate Finance Committee is scheduled to discuss the Senate version of the bill, Senate Bill 79, on Tuesday.

Shanvi Srivastava wearing monokini / swimsuitCollage of photos taken from instagramPopular southern actress Shanvi Srivastava, who has apparently decided to follow the footsteps of young B-Town girl Disha Patani, was trolled by her Instagram fans for wearing a swimsuit and calling it versatility.Shanvi Srivastava, who made her acting debut with the Telugu movie Lovely in 2012, has carved a niche for herself with the kind of roles she has done in the last seven years. Unlike many other young actresses, she rarely tried to make a name for herself with skin show in her movies. But now, she seems to be heading towards it.Shanvi Srivastava is quite active on social media and often keeps her fans on Instagram informed about her personal and professional life by sharing photos and videos. But she surprised her followers with a picture featuring her sporting a black lace monokini taken in her recent photo shoot. In its caption, she said that she prefers being versatile and likes to dissolve herself into any character.People ask me this question often, if being bold is really important in the profession I’m in. I say the question should be, is being versatile is really important to be in this profession?Acting is about dissolving into every character you get. Character can be anything and anyone. It’s your choice to choose the character. You prefer choosing the same character over and over again, go ahead.I prefer being versatile. Dissolving shanvi into any character she gets. I Ain’t a great actor but the little I learned is once you love your work let nothing stop you or tie you. You cannot fly with the wings half open.Love,Shanvi PC by the one who loves his work like how I love mine @sandeep.m.v HMU @naveenyerra3 Styled by @by_varshaabhishek #shanvisri #photoshootShanvi Srivastava has always treated her fans with her decent pictures and the photo featuring her in monokini did not go down well with some of her fans, who slammed her saying that versatility does not mean removing one’s clothes.

Colin thinks it will parallel how Tim Tebow ended up starting in Denver, with Twitter added into the equation. Jackson isn’t ready, but it wouldn’t be surprising if Jackson ended up starting at some point, especially if Flacco plays like he did last year. Moss will look bigger than ever after HOF weekend, TO never smallerRandy Moss and Terrell Owens are largely considered the top two receivers of their generation, and both had over 15,000 yards receiving, both had over 150 TD’s, both also played for 5 teams. They also both had discipline issues, caught bad press at various times during their career and had reputations as malcontents.Despite their similar career tracks, Colin thinks how they handle this weekend will leave different lasting images for both. Moss has humbly embraced the Hall of Fame induction ceremony and shown a respect for joining the elite club, and will look big because of it. Owens, on the other hand, is skipping the ceremony to hold his own event at his alma mater, and will look small and petty.
