People here have been saying that it’s amazing that media isable to report on such issues and that it shows the South is a democratic society,”a source from North Pyongan Province told Daily NK on Tuesday. “Some people in particular have said pointing fingers at the NIS, which would be the equivalent to the North’s State Security Department [SSD], and calling on them to clarify the truth would be a ‘heavenly right.’” She added, “In terms of illegal hacking,people have said how would the South possibly be worse than the North since theSSD wiretaps all communication devices including mobile phones and bugs homes,preventing even married couples from speaking freely,” elaborating that peoplehave said the NIS, which actually works for national interest, is significantlydifferent from the SSD and its policy of treating anyone who has been overseas like a spy.  While most North Koreans remain largelyuninterested in Rodong Sinmun propaganda pieces slamming the South, more areshowing interest in South Korea as a country, following the rising popularityof black market products that enter the country. With the recent NIS scandal,more people have come to develop their own opinions about the South, accordingto the source. Another source in North Hwanghae Provinceweighed in on this news, offering empirical evidence on just how extensivemonitoring by security officials in the North can get. “Back in the 1980s,there was a propaganda leaflet incident in Sariwon. My husband was accused ofbeing affiliated and tortured before being cleared of charges and released.Even so, we were under extensive surveillance for decades,” she said. “I didn’trealize a bug had been planted in our house until the roof caved in duringmonsoon season and it was left exposed.” “In the South, if someone had found a wirein their ceiling, they would be able to take it to security officials and atleast claim that it’s in violation of human rights, but under dictatorshipslike in the North, people can’t say anything at all–they just have to sufferand let it fester inside them,” she pointed out, sighing.“Even now, there are scores of innocentpeople who are dragged off to long-term reeducation camps by security officialsbecause of wiretaps on their home phones.” This source in North Hwanghae Province reiterated her desirefor change in North Korea multiple times during the phone call, particularlyemphasizing granting people the basic freedom to voice their opinion and mediafreedom. She also noted potential for change withinthe North’s fixation on the NIS case and messages there, saying, “The more theNorth goes on about the hacking case, the more critical opportunities it willprovide for people to look into the current leadership.”center_img News Rodong NIS reports bring about reverse effect Facebook Twitter There are signs that North Korea is running into serious difficulties with its corn harvest North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) AvatarDaily NKQuestions or comments about this article?

May home sales weak, but higher than April’s

first_img Canadian Press Share this article and your comments with peers on social media Tougher stress tests won’t chill housing market: Scotia Architecture of the colorful houses on the steep streets of St John's, Newfoundland, Canada ggw/123RF Like most sectors of the economy, the real estate industry was affected by the lockdowns put into effect from mid-March to battle the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.“The big picture is things are moving in the right direction but still have a long way to go,” CREA senior economist Shaun Cathcart said in a statement.He added that the number of homes sold has been steadily rising from mid-April through the first week of June.The month-over-month sales increase came as the number of newly listed homes rose by a record 69% in May compared with April.Still, CREA said there were only 5.6 months of inventory for sale at the end of May, compared with nine months at the end of April.The national average price for homes sold in May was $494,500, down 2.6% from the same month last year.Sherry Cooper, chief economist for Dominion Lending Centres, wrote in a commentary that the national number obscures the fact that there’s a wide variation of regional pricing and the trends “appear to be converging on moderate positive pressure on prices.”People who remain employed despite the Covid-19 pandemic will continue to make their regular housing decisions, Cooper predicted, but added that the bigger concern is for people who permanently lose their jobs.TD economist Rishi Sondhi wrote in a commentary that pent-up demand is likely to fuel additional gains for “at least” another few months.“The big question is what happens after this initial burst,” Sondhi added.TD’s expectation is growth in sales and prices will “moderate” towards the latter part of 2020 and into 2021 as a result of slower population growth, a slow job recovery and tightening measures from Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp, Sondhi concluded.Excluding the Greater Vancouver and the Greater Toronto Area, two of Canada’s most active and expensive housing markets, the average price was about $401,000.“Generally speaking, since the Covid crisis began small declines in prices have been seen in British Columbia while declining trends already in place in Alberta have accelerated,” CREA said.“Across the rest of the Prairies, where sales have been doing comparatively much better against history than in much of the country, price trends have actually been stabilizing.”In Ontario, the year-over-year average price was up nearly 9.5% in the Greater Toronto Area and the Hamilton-Burlington market, up 11.2% in the Niagara region, and up 15.67 in Ottawa. Related news Global housing prices rise amid pandemic: BIS Sales of residential properties in May were up from a record low in April, but were still down 39.8% from the same month last year, the Canadian Real Estate Association reported Monday.It was the weakest showing for the month of May since 1996, even after rising 56.9% from April, when sales volume was the lowest on record, CREA said.

We are confident that the Institute for Workforce Education and Development will impact the lives of many young people in a positive way,” he stated.According to Mr. Gallimore, the partnership between the Ministry and IWED, will help to equip young people from some of the lower income communities, to make significant contributions to the growth of their household, community and country.“We are pleased to see that this Institute is accredited and will be able to offer certificates that are meaningful to the youngsters that come here”, he said, while challenging the young people selected for training to make the best use of the opportunity. “When you get here, your future is guaranteed, if you do the work and if you are dedicated,” he told them.In the meantime, Executive Director of the National Youth Service (NYS), Rev. Adinhair Jones, congratulated MMS for its continued efforts to enhance the development of the Jamaican workforce.He informed that the NYS has used IWED repeatedly for the training of participants and staff and “I want to commit again to our continuing use of the service as this is so important in putting the NYS in a better position to not only serve the young people in Jamaica, but also to serve as partner and stakeholder with so many entities.”Charmaine Scarlett of the National Housing Trust (NHT) expressed confidence that the training programme will be successful.She said “at the NHT, we have been proud partners with Manpower (and Maintenance Services) in delivering not just training but also placement, to so many of our beneficiaries. At the NHT, we try to assist our beneficiaries especially those in low income to earn so that they can pay their mortgages,” she informs.In the meantime, Yanika Wright, one of the 500 young people, who will be trained over a six-week period, said she is enthusiastic and grateful to be part of the programme.“Being a part of the IWED programme has been very interesting and beyond my expectation so far. I am being trained in customer service and I feel very good being here,” she told JIS News.She urged other youth to take charge of the opportunity being provided by the Government and the IWED.“I would tell all the other young people to join the programme because it is a very good programme. It trains you for the world of work and afterwards, they place you in jobs,” she pointed out.The partnership between IWED and SYEAT is in keeping with the MLSS’ efforts to train and place persons in jobs, to reduce the high level of unemployment between the 18-25 age group.

Preparedness and Resilience Project to manage emergencies in Halls Gap

first_imgPreparedness and Resilience Project to manage emergencies in Halls Gap Northern Grampians Shire Council has received funding from the State Government’s “Safer Together” program for a community based bushfire preparedness program in Halls Gap.The program, known as the Halls Gap Community Preparedness and Resilience Project, intends to provide locally relevant resources to residents to help them prepare and respond to bushfire emergencies.The project hopes to draw on community knowledge to assist with the development of fire preparedness information, household fire planning, and business contingency planning specific to Halls Gap.The project will encourage participation from all sectors of the Halls Gap community, learning from their local experiences and integrating some of that knowledge throughout the project.The first step in the project is to carry out a survey to establish what resources and support are essential to emergency preparedness in Halls Gap. The survey results will help assess local interest in the potential formation of a Halls Gap Community Resilience Group, fire preparedness and fuel reduction research, individual and business fire planning workshops and the development of accessible local emergency information.The project will engage a number of key stakeholders such as the residential community, Halls Gap and surrounding businesses, those who work in Halls Gap, and those absentee residents who are land owners yet reside outside of the immediate area.The community consultation survey is accessible from the Have Your Say portal on council’s website from 23 November until 31 December 2020 and will be followed up with a series of presentations.Northern Grampians Shire Council Mayor, Cr Murray Emerson, said this project represented a critical part of the emergency planning framework for Halls Gap.“Halls Gap is recognised as one of our most at-risk communities in the event of a fire,” he said.“We are very thankful to receive State Government funding that will enable our Halls Gap residents to have access to experts, research, and a raft of resources that will support them in the event of a fire-related emergency.“It’s absolutely pertinent that this project is informed by the residents themselves because local knowledge is everything in preparing and surviving an emergency.“I actively encourage the entire Halls Gap community to take part.”Survey responses can be submitted via www.ngshire.vic.gov.au/preparehallsgap by Friday 31 December 2020. /Public Release.

Abbott’s survey calls for heightened focus on nutrition and the need for counselling of mothers with pre-term babies

A new mother benefits from counselling on specialised nutrition for the baby and adequate guidance on physical and cognitive growth milestones to fully understand the growth patterns of a pre-term baby. The survey was conducted between February-March 2017.The Quality of Survival survey arrived at key interventions that help pre-term babies catch up with term babies on all health parameters. Abbott’s research partner IPSOS surveyed more than 1,000 mothers across Mumbai, Delhi, Kolkata and Chennai to understand their concerns and aspirations for their babies.Key findings of the surveyNICU, the knowledge hub – The Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) is the starting point for mothers to seek and gather information. Mothers who received adequate and relevant counselling at the NICU were four times more prepared to bring up a premature baby. They also actively sought information on feeding, nutrition and physical and mental development.Information gaps exist – A small but a critical 10 per cent of mothers surveyed did not get any information on managing their pre-term baby. Nearly 40 per cent of mothers have either received partial or no counselling on the impact of pre-term birth and management of nutrition, health and mental development of their pre-term babies and for themselves.Catching up with term-babies – While almost all mothers surveyed were aware of physical and mental challenges which differentiate pre-term babies from full term babies, they were not sure what would help in matching the growth velocity. Of the mothers surveyed, 93 per cent had experienced challenges in physical markers of growth such as weight gain and therefore sought information on the same proactively, while less than half of mothers considered brain development, cognition and motor skills as key development factors.Immunity till the age of two – Low level of immunity and longer time taken to recover from illness were the main challenges seen for pre-term babies in the first two years. Incidence of fever, cold, low appetite and breathing issues are some of the key problems faced in first 12 months of their birth. While immunity was a key concern in the first three -nine months, it reduced as the child aged.Nutrition – Pre-term babies were easily distracted while breastfeeding, and had issues in latching on to mothers. Survey data showed babies depended mostly on alternative feeds, and mothers were uncertain on the quantum and frequency of feed for preemies till the age of two years.Last but not the least, what about mom – Another prevalent concern in mothers surveyed was that they had difficulty in dealing with her own emotions while looking after a premature baby. Only 24 per cent of mothers are counselled on issues like dealing with stress and trauma. Survey found that post birth, a concern for all mothers is their own mental and physical needs as well, followed by child health and nutrition related issues of the baby.Dr Bhupendra S Awasthi, Pediatrician, Founder and MD, Surya Mother Childcare states, “Premature births in India are on the rise, but for mothers bringing up these children, it continues to be a solo struggle. I strongly believe doctors, caregivers and the family can collectively help to improve health outcomes in babies. As the survey highlights – awareness and timely counselling are two areas where mothers are constantly seeking help and advice. It’s important that doctors in the NICU impart the right knowledge on breast-feeding, care and tracking developmental goals in premature babies. With proper care and the right kind of nutrition it is possible to improve the quality of life, overall growth and cognitive development of premature babies.”Speaking on eve of World Prematurity Day, Amal Kelshikar, Country Head and General Manager, Abbott’s nutrition business in India, said, “The Quality of Survival Survey gave us an insight to premature births from a mother’s perspective. We laud the efforts of healthcare providers and NICU nurses who have taken the lead in providing the first level of counselling support to mothers. To strengthen awareness on pre-term care, Abbott has been conducting trainings for NICU staff by paediatric dieticians and breastfeeding simulation workshops for paramedics in collaboration with global medical training major, Laerdal. We are optimistic our collective efforts will bridge the information gap and empower mothers to bring up healthier babies.”Commenting on the findings of the survey, Dr Umesh Vaidya, Regional Medical Director – Neonatology of Cloudnine said, “Bringing up premature babies is different from term babies – they have a different journey, they need extra attention on nutrition, nurture and care. Nutrition is key to developing the brain and cognitive abilities in babies. While mothers notice physical milestones, tracking brain development is critical for premature babies. Throughout the first year of life, a baby’s brain continues to develop and build hundreds of neural connections faster than at any other time in their lives. Therefore, it’s important that brain nutrients including DHA and natural vitamin E are part of the baby’s diet.” Menopause to become the next game-changer in global femtech solutions industry by 2025last_img read more

If safety aspect is also recognised that way then it can be a booster for building safety culture. While granting incentives, loans or subsidies, the government should make safety aspect also a part of the eligibility conditions. Let safety be part of everything, make it part of every solution. That can change the paradigm for occupational safety,” Sant said.Stating that India has a long way to go before achieving excellence in safety, Sant said, “If you take a scale of 1-10 and if your goal is to achieve 10, I think we are between 2-3 only, if one is being honest about it and in the light of measures adopted in advanced countries. There are big organisations doing better or willing to do even better in safety aspect. But what about the organisations at the bottom of the pyramid – the small, micro enterprises, the medium enterprises, and that is a big challenge.”Anil Verma, Chairman, CII Task Force on Industrial Safety and President & Executive Director, Godrej & Boyce Mfg, said that with several investors focus on investments in companies with noble causes including occupational safety themes, it has become an incentive for companies to follow safety aspects, while highlighting the conference theme: Excellence in Safety: A Must for Make in India. last_img read more

Saul Rodriguez.Police responding to 911 calls at about 9:07 p.m. found the skateboarder on the ground with severe injuries, according to Rodriguez. Fire department paramedics transported the skateboarder to a local hospital, where he was pronounced dead at about 9:45 p.m.Authorities were not releasing the identity of the skateboarder as they attempted to notify next of kin, officials said. He was a Los Angeles black man in his 20s, according to Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter of the county Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner.The driver of the car is not considered a suspect and was cooperating with investigators, Rodriguez said. The driver, a Venice resident, was not speeding at the time of the collision and did not sustain any injuries.Police have been sorting through conflicting witness statements, Rodriguez said. The incident remains under investigation.Transportation accidents accounted for 784 deaths in Los Angeles County in 2013, the most recent year for which data were immediately available, according to an annual coroner’s office report.Santa Monica in recent years has had a number of traffic collisions involving pedestrians or skateboarders that have resulted in death or severe injuries, according to Daily Press archives.In 2011, an 80-year-old woman crossing Pico Boulevard near 26th Street was struck and killed by a car driven by a fellow senior citizen.In 2013, a 54-year-old man was hit and killed by a motorist while walking across Lincoln Boulevard at Pier Avenue.In 2014, a 20-year-old skateboarder was hospitalized after being struck by a hit-and-run driver near 17th and Marine [email protected] :23rd streetfatalityLos Angelesocean park boulevardparamedicsSanta Monicasanta monica californiasanta monica daily presssanta monica newssanta monica policesaul rodriguezskateboardingVeniceshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentHomeless parolee booked for stealing and probation violationSeptember Grab BagYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall12 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson23 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter23 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor23 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press23 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press23 hours agolast_img read more
