There is a physical part, then a technical one. But there will also be the emotional part, so he has the real magnitude of what we are thinking,” Gaspar said. “We are not thinking only about Neymar, we will have communication strategies for every athlete.”Gaspar said Neymar will be expected to play about 45 minutes of the friendly against Croatia in Liverpool on June 3, the first of two for Brazil before the World Cup. The second is against Austria in Vienna on June 10.“Today, we talked about playing those two games as if they were the World Cup,” Gaspar said.“We need total reality then, so we start the tournament well. We studied those two teams tactically and saw they were ideal for those friendlies. For now, they are more important than our (World Cup) opener.”Brazil opens in Russia against Switzerland on June 17 in Rostov.

China Dedicates ‘1st Class ETU’

first_imgThe first and only Ebola Treatment Unit (ETU) constructed so far by the People’s Republic of China has been dedicated in Monrovia, with President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf describing the facility as what “looks like first class” treatment for the people of Liberia.The Chinese ETU is a 100-bed facility that was built and will be operated by a medical contingent of the Chinese People’s Liberation Army (PLA). The ETU is situated at the Samuel K. Doe Sports Complex in Paynesville.Described as one of the best treatment centers in the country, the Chinese ETU is designed to meet high standards in the prevention and control of infectious diseases. With three batches of 500 medical staff, Chinese authorities said, the center will run for six months to isolate suspected Ebola patients and treat confirmed patients including United Nations staff who may get the virus.The facility was dedicated by President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf who was accompanied by an array of government officials, including outgoing Health Minister, Dr. Walter Traub Gwenigale, and Ministers of Foreign Affairs, Information, Youth and Sports, among others.Heading a high-level Chinese delegation from China for the dedication ceremony was the Vice Minister of the National Health and Family Planning Commission of the PRC, Cui Li, and the Director-General of Health Department, General Logistics Department of the People’s Liberation Army (PLA), Ren Guoquan.The head of the Chinese delegation, Cui Li, said the ETU built and staffed entirely by Chinese will be run and managed independently, something that is unprecedented both in the international aid to fight Ebola and China’s medical aid history.She noted that the ETU mirrors the long-lasting friendship between China and Africa, which have shared the weal and woes over the past 50 years, and also represents the implementation of China’s Africa policy of “Sincerity, Real Results, Affinity and Good Faith,” proposed by the President of China, Xi Jinping.In the preparation and building of the Center, Ms. Cui, who spoke through an interpreter, said her government sticks to the principle of “handle special cases with special methods when it comes to aiding Liberia’s fight” and fully respects the Liberian Government’s will and participation in the process.“After President Xi’s announcement of the 4th round of assistance to the affected countries to fight the epidemic, we took just a week to transport the construction materials, medical equipment and 500 construction workers to Liberia in six chartered flights.”President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, on behalf of the Government and people of Liberia, extended heartfelt thanks and appreciation to the People’s Republic of China (PRC) for the partnership and friendship.  She said she looked forward to the service that will be rendered by the team at the new100-bed ETU.“All of this could not have been done except with the endorsement and support of the Chinese Government led by the President,  Xi Jinping, who gave full endorsement through the Ambassador and his staff,” she said, requesting Amb. Zhang Yue, to convey to President Xi Jinping and the Premier Li Kequiang thanks and appreciation on behalf of the Liberian people.President Sirleaf recalled “the difficult days of July, August and September when Liberia was confronted with this unknown enemy, where some of the brave doctors and nurses, without proper equipment, tried to respond and ended up dying.  There were others who got infected, and most abandoned the health facilities which meant that while there were hundreds dying of Ebola, there were also many others dying of other causes because there was no means to treat them.”She noted that China was one of the first to respond immediately when the Liberian government began to appeal for global assistance.  China responded by sending an aircraft with an assortment of anti-Ebola equipment, materials and drugs that enabled healthcare workers to respond to Ebola-affected people.She indicated that the Chinese action prompted and encouraged other partners to join in the response exercise.President Sirleaf noted that in the dedication of the facility, China has now joined others in sending a team to construct an ETU to enable Liberians have a place to take the sick and infected.She described the newly constructed ETU as “exemplary” and commended China for this exceptional response. “As I look at the quality of the construction and the quality service that will be rendered, this looks like first-class treatment for our people,” President Sirleaf said, adding, “This is something commendable and exemplary, for which we will always be grateful.”She also commended the Chinese medical contingent of the People’s Liberation Army for their diligence and hard work in being able to construct the facility.Ren Guoquan, for his part, said the opening of the ETU, which took a month to construct, is the first international humanitarian relief project that is built, operated and managed by the Chinese PLA.He said the development is significant for promoting Liberia’s capability to fight the Ebola disease, safeguarding Liberian people’s lives and health, and controlling the global spread of the Ebola epidemic.“Together with the Liberian people, we have the determination, confidence and ability to tide over the difficulties and defeat the epidemic,” he said, adding that this will be a new milepost and will open a new chapter for the relationship between China and Liberia.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Weekly MP Report from Jay Hill

first_imgThis EI legislation builds upon the unprecedented measures our Conservative Government has taken to improve EI benefits and training programs to better help unemployed Canadians get back on their feet and back to work. This includes an additional $1.5-billion investment in training for Canadians whether they qualify for EI or not, as well as EI work-sharing agreements which have been particularly beneficial to forest companies and workers in our region.Also this week, our legislation to provide up to 20 extra weeks of EI benefits to long-tenured workers was passed by the House of Commons. It will now face scrutiny in the Senate but I am hopeful that senators will recognize the significance of this measure to Canadians who have worked hard and paid into the EI system for years but now find themselves unemployed through no fault of their own.H1N1 UpdateHealth officials are encouraging Canadians to be patient as priority groups receive their vaccinations.Advertisement The federal, provincial and territorial governments jointly agreed that these groups include pregnant women, children under 5, health care providers, and adults with underlying health conditions.Six million doses of H1N1 vaccine have been delivered to the provinces and territories, meaning there is enough vaccine for priority groups.Meanwhile, efforts by the federal Liberals to politicize and sensationalize this issue are disappointing and unfortunate.All levels of government are jointly mobilized to roll out the largest mass immunization campaign in Canadian history … and it’s AHEAD of schedule. Plus, Canada currently has MORE H1N1 vaccine per capita than ANY OTHER COUNTRY IN THE WORLD!It’s also important to remember that this is a Pandemic….not a Panic-demic! Continue to monitor news about vaccine clinics at www.health.gov.bc.ca/flu/, remain vigilant about hand-washing, and, please, stay home from work or school when you’re sick.Advertisement This week our Conservative Government not only delivered on our commitment to self-employed Canadians, we exceeded it.Human Resources Minister Diane Finley introduced the Fairness for the Self-Employed Act on Tuesday. Bill C-56 will provide self-employed Canadians with voluntary access to all Employment Insurance (EI) special benefits. This includes maternity and parental benefits, sickness benefits and compassionate care benefits.All parents face the immense challenge of juggling children and their jobs. Yet currently, the self-employed face a much harder choice in determining if and when they will have children because it can mean a complete loss of income for several weeks and months.- Advertisement -There are approximately 2.6 million self-employed Canadians who are an integral part of our economy and economic recovery. This includes small business owners, farmers, construction workers, professionals, and those who own a home business, among many others.This legislation not only extends access to maternity and parental EI benefits to the self-employed – a Conservative promise in the 2008 federal election – it encompasses other EI special benefits that payroll employees can receive. It’s the fair and right thing to do.Self-employed Canadians will now have the peace of mind knowing they can access benefits to cope with major life events such as the birth of a child, an illness, or caring for a gravely ill family member.Advertisementlast_img read more

Apple’s Steve Jobs unveils new Macs featuring Intel processors

first_imgSAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Apple Computer Inc.’s historic shift to Intel Corp. microprocessors came months earlier than expected Tuesday as CEO Steve Jobs unveiled desktop and notebook computers based on new two-brained chips from the world’s largest semiconductor company’s. The first Macs to deploy Intel’s Core Duo processors will be the latest iMac desktop, whose circuitry is all built into the display, and the MacBook Pro laptop. When it announced the switch in June, Apple said it expected to begin making the transition by mid-2006. On Tuesday, Apple chief executive Steve Jobs was joined at the Macworld expo by Intel CEO Paul Otellini to unveil the new jointly designed computers. Intel, on the other hand, has been focusing on developing chips specifically tailored for notebooks. In 2003, it launched its Centrino notebook technology with a processor that boosted a longer battery life by minimizing its power demand without a major hit to performance. During last week’s International Consumer Electronics Show, Intel unveiled the latest generation, the Core Duo, which features two computing engines on a single piece of silicon. It was that chip that the Apple decided to fit into the new iMac. The new iMacs will have the same all-in-one design as previous models and will be available with 17-inch and 20-inch screens for $1,299 and $1,699. Jobs claimed the new models are two to three times faster than the iMac G5, based on an IBM chip. “With (the) Mac OS X (operating system) plus Intel’s latest dual-core processor under the hood, the new iMac delivers performance that will knock our customers’ socks off,” said Jobs. The MacBooks Pros start at $1,999. The Core Duo chip’s low energy requirements are expected to enable ever-smaller computers, including some built right into television sets as the industry gears its machines more toward multimedia use.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

For years, Apple shunned Intel, which has provided chips that power a majority of the world’s PCs, along with Windows software from Microsoft Corp. In the late 1990s, Apple even ran TV ads with a Pentium II glued to a snail and others with a toasted clean room suit. But Apple, looking for faster, more energy-efficient chips, became increasingly frustrated in recent years as its chip suppliers, IBM Corp. and Motorola Corp.’s spinoff, Freescale Semiconductor Inc., failed to meet its needs. Of particular concern was IBM’s apparent inability to develop a G5 chip that would work well in notebook computers.last_img read more

Odds for unseating Levine slim, but two trying

SACRAMENTO — The 40th Assembly District in the central San Fernando Valley has been reliably Democratic for years, but that isn’t stopping two underfunded and unknown Republicans from seeking to topple incumbent Assemblyman Lloyd Levine, D-Van Nuys, this year. Armineh Chelebian, a self-employed accountant, and Rick Montaine, a computer systems analyst, are vying in the June primary for the GOP nomination in the district that stretches from Northridge and Van Nuys to Woodland Hills. Voter registration in the district is about 48-29 in favor of Democrats. Chelebian and Montaine, both Winnetka residents, knew each other before the campaign. They served together on the Winnetka Neighborhood Council. They get along well and decline to take shots at each other. “We know each other. We respect each other,” Chelebian said. When asked why voters should choose him instead of Chelebian, Montaine is at a bit of a loss, calling his opponent a “sweetheart” and an “excellent candidate.” He notes, however, that he was first to declare his candidacy and said he was surprised when she decided to run. “I have to admit: I’m a bit flustered that she decided to do this,” Montaine said. “If it came down to voting between Levine or Armineh, I would definitely vote for Armineh.” But in the June 6 primary, of course, “I’d vote for me,” he said. Chelebian, who also ran for the Valley city council that would have been created if voters had passed secession from Los Angeles in 2001, said she is running because she hopes to make a difference in the community. She also ran as a write-in for L.A. City Council in 2003. Chelebian said her perspective as a mother of two — a daughter, age 18, and a son, 15 — helps guide her values as a candidate. She said she wants to improve the educational system by breaking up the Los Angeles Unified School District into smaller districts and giving more authority to principals, parents and teachers. “I believe when it’s big, it doesn’t have enough local control,” she said. “The school district has seven board members overlooking 750,000 students now. When do they find time to really concentrate on the issues that are important within the classroom?” She also supports California’s proposed version of Jessica’s Law, the November ballot measure that would increase sentences for molesters of children younger than age 14 and would require them, if eventually paroled, to wear GPS monitoring bracelets for life. Chelebian said she also wants to improve the state’s business climate by lowering taxes and seeking ways to make government more efficient, rather than looking at additional bond issues. Montaine has been running an under-the-radar campaign. His job as a computer systems analyst doesn’t give him much time for campaign activities and he hasn’t raised any funds. He said he realizes a Republican has a slim chance of defeating Levine in a district where voter registration is lopsidedly in favor of the incumbent. He said he is running mainly to highlight opposition to some of Levine’s policies, especially the incumbent’s co-sponsorship of an assisted-suicide bill. Montaine said he believes in the sanctity of life and thinks such a bill would also cause conflict among family members of someone considering an assisted suicide. “I don’t really like the way I see things going on up in Sacramento,” Montaine said. He said he would like to see schools spend more of their budgets on classroom materials, such as books, paper and pencils. He also would like to see gasoline tax revenues go toward fixing roads and not be subject to raiding by the Legislature for other purposes.— harrison.sheppard@dailynews.com (916) 446-6723last_img read more

first_imgThe winning relay teams at the small school’s championships.The Allianz Cumann na mBunscol Athletics for Small Schools County Finals 2013 were held at the Danny McDaid track in Letterkenny on Friday.This is the 10th year for the championships which are becoming more and more popular with the smaller schools in the county. Children are given the opportunity to compete on a level playing field with other pupils from similar sized schools.Thanks to the generous help from Donegal Sports Partnership Cumann na mBunscol can make these championships completely free to all participants, unlike other commercially based athletic events for primary school children in the county. This year 558 children from small schools (1 – 4 teacher schools) all over the county participated.Schools which took part this year for the first time were Roshine NS, Rosses, SN an tSraithe Móire, Glendowan, and Acres NS, Burtonport.There were some memorable performances from the young athletes and great fun and enjoyment was experienced by all involved.Pupils that came to the fore were: Tommy Mac an Ultaigh, Scoil an Choimín; Kelly Anderson, Drumoghill NS; Mia Baikí, Acres NS; Karen Gallagher, Cashel, Fanad; Saoirse Bonner, Keadue NS; Evan Duddy, Srath Mór; and Dean Harkin, Tiernasligo, Urris. The overall county championships for 1 and 2 teacher schools was won by Keadue NS, Rosses who have now won two-in-a-row. St Joseph’s Rathdonnell was a close second.In the 3 and 4 teacher division Frosses NS was victorious but they were pushed all the way by Scoil Eoin Baiste, Carrigart, Drumoghill NS and Scoil an Choimín, Gleann Fhinne.Cumann na mBunscol is indebted to the many teachers who brought their pupils along to the event, which for many was their first experience of Track and Field athletics. Indeed over the last 10 years many successful county athletes began their athletic careers at these championships.A special word of thanks to all parents, teachers, young adults and Rosses AC club members who worked tirelessly once again to make these championships the success that they are today.We also appreciate the generosity of both Letterkenny AC and Lifford AC in allowing us to use its equipment. Cumann na mBunscol is now planning ahead to widen these championships to cater for larger size schools as many teachers in the larger schools as dissatisfied with how schools athletics is at the moment.
