APTN National NewsNunavut RCMP are reporting a possible homicide in the Nunavut community of Cape Dorset after a stand-off with a suspect.At around 7:30 a.m. Monday, Cape Dorset RCMP found a dead teen male in what they called a “suspected homicide.”Police closed off a neighbourhood in the small, fly-in hamlet, which is located west of Iqaluit. Residents were advised to stay indoors and away from windows.A 28 year-old surrendered to RCMP without incident on Monday afternoon.
But Mr. Frattini stressed that a partnership involving governments, the business sector and others is also necessary if the world is to successfully ameliorate the effects of the food crisis or any other of today’s major challenges, such as climate change.“We must enable the Organization to tackle it effectively,” he said, referring to the food crisis and citing the work so far of the Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), the World Food Programme (WFP) and the International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD), which are all headquartered in Rome.The UN held a major summit in June in the Italian capital to discuss the crisis and Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has also set up a global high-level task force to spearhead efforts to find solutions, such as boosting agricultural production.“We also encourage a direct involvement of the private sector in bringing agriculture back to its rightful place at the centre of economic policies,” Mr. Frattini said. “A global partnership that will increase the flow of investments and know-how, increase productivity, and contribute to the development of national agro-industry.”The soaring cost of many basic foods, such as rice, over the past two years has driven at least 75 million people into poverty, taking the total number of hungry poor to over 900 million people, according to the most recent UN figures.The food crisis has undermined efforts to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), the set of eight internationally-backed targets for slashing social and economic ills, all by 2015. Mr. Frattini urged delegates at the Assembly to make the pursuit of the MDGs “an absolute priority” so as to bring meaningful difference to the lives of nearly a billion people. 26 September 2008The United Nations should be at the forefront of efforts to tackle the global food crisis, Italian Foreign Minister Franco Frattini told the General Assembly tonight, saying the world body’s agencies are best placed to both alleviate hunger and guarantee food security.
The UN will flip off the light switch at 8:30pm at its landmark Headquarters in New York to observe “Earth Hour” on 28 March to raise awareness of climate change and mobilize nations to reach agreement on a for a new agreement later this year in Copenhagen on a successor pact to the Kyoto Protocol, whose first commitment period ends in 2012.“It promises to be the largest demonstration of public concern about climate change ever attempted,” Mr. Ban said in a message marking the event.By marking Earth Hour, people will send a message to their representatives to “seal a deal in Copenhagen” and reach a deal that will protect people and the planet,” he noted. “We need an ambitious agreement. An agreement that is fair and effective. An agreement based on sound science.”The symbolic gesture will be observed by more than 1,000 cities and close to an estimated one billion people, who will turn off their non-essential lights for one hour starting at 8:30pm local time on Saturday.This year, Earth Hour, which was launched two years ago in Australia by the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), falls the day before 2009’s first round of UN negotiations on new climate change agreement in Bonn, Germany. The talks, which are slated to wrap up on 8 April, will be the first of three sessions leading up to the Copenhagen talks in December.“Let us use this unique opportunity to protect people and the planet. The United Nations is committed to this vision, but we need your support,” stressed Mr. Ban. “Together, we can make a difference.” 27 March 2009Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has urged people everywhere to join the United Nations and millions of citizens around the world in sending a message to government leaders to protect the planet by switching off their lights for an hour tomorrow night.
Program delays and cash concerns within Bombardier’s Inc.’s aerospace division won’t deter Air Canada from considering its new CSeries commercial aircraft, Air Canada CEO Calin Rovinescu said Tuesday.The head of the country’s largest airline said the CSeries will definitely be in the running when Air Canada replaces its remaining 90-seat Embraer 190s single-aisle planes after 2020.“When those Embraers come out, for sure the Bombardier CSeries will be an alternative, 100%,” he told reporters after speaking to the Montreal Council on Foreign Relations.Bombardier Inc CEO Pierre Beaudoin steps down in major shakeup at struggling plane makerBombardier Inc: The top 5 problems that need to be fixedCritics take aim at Bombardier Inc leadership as delays, missed targets batter share priceAir Canada announced about a year ago that it will buy as many as 109 Boeing 737 MAX planes during the next decade but could select the more cost-efficient CSeries to replace the remaining 25 Embraer planes. Mr. Rovinescu didn’t say when an order could be placed.While he said Bombardier has to make its case for the 110- to 160-seat plane, Mr. Rovinescu said he doesn’t believe Bombardier’s recent struggles are an issue.“I certainly would not be concerned if I was in the market for airplanes today and I don’t think that that will be an issue,” he added.Last week, Bombardier hired former United Technologies executive Alain Bellemare to replace chief executive Pierre Beaudoin, who took the job of executive chairman.It also said it will shore up its finances by suspending its dividend and working to raise an additional US$2.1 billion in capital.Handout/Bombardier Rovinescu predicted Bombardier will come out of its challenges much stronger, like Air Canada has done since avoiding another round of bankruptcy protection several years ago.

From January through March, Chrysler’s sales were up 39 per cent as customers bought more Ram pickups, Jeep Grand Cherokee SUVs and Chrysler 200 midsize sedans.Not bad for a company that almost died three years ago. A government auto task force deadlocked on whether to save the company in 2009, with the tie broken by President Barack Obama.Chrysler’s first-quarter profit was more than four times the $116 million that the company made in the first quarter of last year. It was Chrysler’s best performance since the third quarter of 1998 when it made $682 million during the pickup truck and SUV boom.Chrysler made more in the first quarter than it did during all of 2011, mainly because of a huge accounting charge last year for refinancing and the government loans that saved it from the auction house.The refinancing helped to boost Chrysler’s first-quarter earnings. The company said it saved $71 million during the quarter because of the refinancing, which was finished last May.Another reason Chrysler made so much money is because it’s generating more cash every time it sells a car or truck. It’s getting an average of $29,234 per vehicle in the U.S., up almost 5 per cent over last year, according to the TrueCar.com auto pricing website. When sales and prices both rise, that generates more revenue and profit. Revenue for the quarter rose 25 per cent to $16.4 billion.Chrysler worked overtime for the past two years to revamp 16 of its models in an effort to make them more appealing to consumers. The results have paid off with steady sales increases through 2011 and into 2012.The company also expressed optimism for the entire year, repeating a forecast that it would make $1.5 billion in 2012.It has reason to be optimistic. Total car and truck sales in the U.S. are running at an annual rate of 14 million so far this year. That would be a healthy increase over last year’s 12.8 million. The average age of vehicles on U.S. roads is nearing 11 years, and pent-up demand is helping to kick-start sales. Chrysler should share in the growth. Last year it raised its U.S. market share to 11.5 per cent, from 9.4 per cent a year earlier.Chrysler also is about to launch the new Dodge Dart, its first decent compact car since the bug-eyed Neon in the mid-1990s, and a refreshed version of the Ram pickup, its top-selling vehicle, is coming later in the year.Chrysler and its financing arm needed $12.5 billion from U.S. taxpayers to survive three years ago. The recession, which devastated auto sales, brought the company to the brink of financial ruin. Of the original Chrysler bailout, $11.2 billion has been repaid. The U.S. Treasury Department says it won’t recover the remaining $1.3 billion.
Drugstore chain Walgreen’s profit slips as generic drug benefit wanes, frigid winter bites by Tom Murphy, The Associated Press Posted Mar 25, 2014 11:05 am MDT Walgreen’s fiscal second quarter earnings slipped from a year ago as the nation’s largest drugstore chain reaped a smaller benefit from generic drugs and took a $60 million hit due to rough winter weather.But the Deerfield, Ill., company’s underlying performance impressed investors, and its shares rose, approaching the all-time high that they reached last month.Walgreen executives said Tuesday that a wave of new generic drug introductions peaked in last year’s quarter, which helped the company’s bottom line then but made comparisons difficult for this year’s quarter.Generic drugs, which are cheaper alternatives to branded medicines, squeeze drugstore sales but improve profitability because they come with a wider margin between the cost for the pharmacy to purchase the drugs and the reimbursement it receives.The company said Tuesday that the tough comparison between this year’s quarters and last year will ease later this year. Walgreen expects generics to start helping its year-over-year performance again by the end of the fiscal year.Walgreen said a tough winter also affected its performance in the quarter by keeping customers away from its stores, forcing it to temporarily close some locations and adding about $23 million in snow removal costs.Overall, Walgreen Co. earned $754 million, or 78 cents per share, in the quarter that ended Feb. 28. That’s down from $756 million, or 79 cents per share, a year ago.Adjusted earnings were 91 cents per share. Analysts expected 93 cents per share, according to FactSet.Its revenue rose to about 5 per cent to $19.61 billion and matched Wall Street expectations.Walgreen competitor CVS Caremark Corp. made a big splash nationally last month when it said it planned to phase out tobacco product sales from its stores by October. Walgreen stores still sell tobacco, and an analyst asked CEO Greg Wasson during a Tuesday morning conference call whether the company would stick with it unless such sales a banned by a local government.Wasson didn’t address the future of tobacco sales. Instead, he emphasized that the drugstore chain has pharmacists who can help people quit as well as smoking cessation products.“We think we’re well-positioned to help folks change their behaviour,” he said.Gabelli Funds portfolio manager Jeff Jonas said Walgreen stores may gain some business from smokers once CVS quits selling tobacco.“We’re in an environment right now where traffic is really tough to come by … so every little bit helps,” he said.Walgreen shares rose $1.95, or 3 per cent, to $66.26 after rising as high as $68.15 earlier in the day. The stock started 2014 strong, hitting an all-time high price of $69.84 at the end of last month. FILE – In this June 21, 2013, file photo, customers leave a Walgreens pharmacy in Jackson, Miss.

CALGARY – Energy giant Enbridge Inc. is making big inroads into renewables even as changes in government policies are paving the way for the rapid expansion of its traditional oil and gas pipeline business.The company said Friday it was investing $1.7 billion for 50 per cent of the Hohe See wind energy project off the coast of Germany, which follows last year’s $282-million buy of a 50 per cent stake in a group of French offshore wind projects.“It’s clear that we’re going to need all sources of supply to meet growing global energy demand, and that includes renewable supplies,” said Enbridge CEO Al Monaco in an earnings conference call.A day earlier, the Federal Trade Commission approved Enbridge’s (TSX:ENB) proposed $37-billion takeover of Spectra Energy Corp., which will greatly expand the Calgary-based company’s footprint in the United States just as the new administration there brings in more oil-and-gas-friendly policies.“The political landscape in North America has shifted to, let’s call it a more balanced tone for energy and infrastructure and development,” said Monaco.“We’ve seen strong conviction from the federal and provincial governments in Canada to advance infrastructure, and we see that happening as well in the United States on economic growth and a positive stance on energy.”The election of U.S. President Donald Trump has, among other thing, helped clear the way for the Dakota Access Pipeline to move forward despite extensive protests by the Standing Rock Sioux tribe and others.Following news that regulatory and court hurdles had been cleared on the project, Enbridge announced Wednesday it had closed its US$1.5-billion purchase of a 27.6 per cent stake in the Bakken Pipeline System, which includes Dakota Access.Monaco said Enbridge looked into the work the developer of the project had done on stakeholder consultations and is pleased with the investment.“There’s obviously different points of view on that project,” said Monaco. “We did a lot of work beforehand to assess the work that Energy Transfer had done in this area, and we were quite satisfied they had done a pretty good job.”The closure of the deal was criticized by Grand Chief Derek Nepinak on behalf of the Treaty Alliance Against Tar Sands Expansion, who called it a “historic wrong” being committed against indigenous peoples and vowed to push against other Enbridge projects.“As Enbridge seeks to pass its Line 3 tar sands pipeline through the Prairies and down into Minnesota, Indigenous People will remember that Enbridge sought to profit off this great injustice at Standing Rock,” said Nepinak in a statement.The changing policy landscape in North America is clearing the way for several other pipelines designed to move Alberta oil to markets, including Keystone XL, Trans Mountain expansion and Enbridge’s Line 3 replacement.Looking at the expanding options, Monaco said that with its own increased capacity including the 370,000 barrels a day on Line 3 and boosted capacity on other lines, it expects that only one other pipeline will be needed to cover production until the latter half of the next decade.For the company’s new German wind project, it expects to spend $600 million this year and invest the remaining $1.1 billion through 2019, when the project is expected to be in service.Power generated by the 497-megawatt wind farm will be sold at fixed prices over a 20-year period under a German government incentive program, with the option to expand a further 112 megawatts of capacity.The company has yet to give the final go-ahead on the 1,428 megawatts of potential French offshore projects, while the 400-megawatt offshore Rampion project in the United Kingdom, which it owns a 25 per cent stake, should come online in 2018.Follow @ibickis on Twitter. Enbridge to invest $1.7 billion in wind farm as pipeline business gathers steam by Ian Bickis, The Canadian Press Posted Feb 17, 2017 4:32 am MDT Last Updated Feb 17, 2017 at 11:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
Licence holders have passionately held, often opposing opinions.Mike Grimes, head of boating, Canal & River Trust Acting coach and director Dominic Kelly with his dog ‘Puck’ on their boat at Lisson Grove, west LondonCredit:Eddie Mulholland/Telegraph Now a number of long-standing boat owners say the influx of young people is causing problems.”It’s great to see a new generation coming up and enjoying the river because it means they will become its new custodians, but from Thursday to Sunday they socialise very loudly,” said one canal dweller of 30 years, who asked not to be named.”I don’t think young people appreciate how far sound travels outdoors at night, which does cause tensions because the rest of us have chosen to be here for the peace, the quiet and the solitude.”At a marina in Tardebigge, Worcestershire, Alastair King, place manager of Anglo Welsh Waterway holidays, which rents boats to groups, said noise was a frequent “point of contention” between canal users.“We make sure they won’t ever be too rowdy,” he said. “We give them a stern talking to before they cast off to take them down a few pegs and make sure there’s no trouble. “We tell them if we get a complaint, they have a warning. If we get another, we order them off the boat and leave them at the side of the canal.”In Stratford-upon-Avon houseboat resident Callum Marshall, 25, a freelance artist, admitted that “sometimes I blast my music out pretty loud”, although he said no one had ever complained. With a top speed of four mph and a backdrop of weeping willows on dappled water, it is generally regarded as a bucolic pastime for the elderly.But canal life is fast becoming dominated by younger boaters, setting up a clash of generations on the water.Growing numbers of young people are choosing to live on houseboats along Britain’s riverbanks and towpaths, leading to tensions between them and more traditional and older canal goers.Arguments over loud parties and rows about a shortage of mooring spaces have become a more common site along the country’s once tranquil waterways.New figures from the Canal & River Trust show that a large majority, 64 per cent, of those who live on houseboats on permanent moorings are aged under 45.The same survey also shows that almost half of those who live on what are classed as continuous cruisers, boats which move from mooring to mooring, are aged 16 to 44.On the once industrial River Lea, near Stratford in east London, which underwent regeneration for the London 2012 Olympics, smartly painted boats can now be hired for events and parties, with groups of friends gathering on boats to drink and listen to music. The Canal & River Trust’s survey confirmed that the profile of the traditional boat owner is someone over 55 who uses their boat for pleasure, while a larger percentage of younger canal goers use their boats as a permanent home and choose boating because it offers an alternative lifestyle. The growing numbers of young people living on canals is particularly visible in urban areas – such as London’s Grand Union Canal and River Lea and the Birmingham Canal Navigation network – where high rents and astronomical property prices have led increasing numbers to seek an alternative to bricks and mortar.But that has created a shortage of mooring spaces, leading to many older canal goers feeling reluctant about taking their boats into urban waterways for fear they may not find anywhere to stop for the night.David, 69, who lives on a barge in the Gas Street Basin, Birmingham, said: “The issues we have are with those who live in a barge because they think it’s cheap and then they don’t want to pay their way. They outstay their fair time on visitor moors and overcrowd city canals. This is a big problem in London.”He added however: “It’s a very good thing that young people are choosing to live on barges. There’s a stereotype that boaters are all retirees and it’s good to have diversity.”Canal & River Trust, which is responsible for maintaining the 2,000 miles of British canals and rivers, said that while the changing demographic of water users had led to some tensions between younger and older boaters, it was also a sign of a welcome revival in canal life.Mike Grimes, head of boating at the trust, said its own survey had revealed “a growing polarisation between boaters’ views”.“Licence holders have passionately held, often opposing opinions, and we will use the results to help us understand our customers’ differing needs,” he said.However, Mr Grimes stressed: “What boaters all have in common is the desire to protect our canals and rivers and preserve the right and ability to navigate them. Canals are enjoying a second golden age and are more popular than ever before. Generally speaking, the sense of community is very much alive and well on the canals: it’s a part of what makes them such special places. “Of course sometimes people are going to have different opinions but the vast majority are considerate. Experienced boaters often show new boaters the ropes and the finer points of boating etiquette, while younger boaters bring a whole new perspective to waterways life.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

FORMER FIANNA FÁIL TD John Carty has died, the party has confirmed this afternoon. The 63-year-old passed away last night. He was a TD for Mayo between 2002 and 2007 before serving on the agricultural panel in the Seanad between 2007 and 2011. Prior to that he was a councillor for Claremorris and served on Mayo County Council between 1999 and 2002. In a statement, party leader Micheál Martin said Carty “was one of life’s true gentlemen. He was great company, great fun and always had time for everyone”. He added: “He was a diligent and dedicated public representative and took his job as a TD, a Senator and a Councillor very seriously. “John was much loved across Co Mayo and within the agriculture and small business communities in particular. He will be sadly missed.” The party’s health spokesperson also paid tribute to Carty in the Dáil this afternoon, and offered condolences to his wife Kathleen and his eight children.
THE RECENT RISE of the number of women in Ireland having Caesarean sections is not a result of women being “too posh to push”, with up to 80 per cent of women experiencing pelvic floor damage during the birth of their first baby, according to the Continence Foundation of Ireland (CFI).One in three Irish women experience a distressing and embarrassing condition known pelvic floor dysfunction – which refers to a group of clinical conditions that occur when muscles of the pelvic floor are weak or tight. As a result, up to 40 per cent of women will experience some degree of incontinence in their lifetime and almost 10 per cent will undergo surgery for urinary incontinence or pelvic organ prolapse, CFI says.Pelvic floor dysfunction can occur as a result of obesity, menopause, pregnancy and childbirth where it is thought that pregnancy itself may be the cause regardless of birth method (caesarean or vaginal delivery), however up to 80 per cent of women experience pelvic floor damage during the birth of their first baby. Some women may opt for elective C-sections due to previous pelvic floor damageAlmost 15 per cent of women will require an operation and 30 per cent of those undergoing surgery will have at least two surgeries in trying to correct the problem, the symptoms of which may include urinary incontinence, faecal incontinence, pelvic organ prolapse, bladder pain syndrome, defecatory dysfunction, and several chronic pain syndromes.This month will see the largest annual conference of the International Urogynecological Association (IUGA) take place in Dublin, where almost 1,500 health professionals from more than 70 countries will gather to hear world leading experts lead debate and discuss contemporary issues such as natural versus caesarean childbirth, the latest surgical techniques for prolapsed repair, and the latest management of urinary incontinence.The public information evening will take place at 7pm on Tuesday 28 May at the Convention Centre, Spencer Dock, North Wall Quay, Dublin 1 (Liffey Room 2).Read: National Maternity Hospital to leave Holles St in €150m moveWatch: More men experience the pain of childbirthRead: Government accepts Bill to allow for symphysiotomy compensationColumn: New HSE plans will further limit women’s choices in childbirth
Apple Ipad 3 et Ipad Mini : la stratégie du chameléonRêvée, fantasmée puis annoncée de façon officielle, l’Ipad 3 est LA tablette attendue au tournant par les fans de technologie…Mais aussi par la concurrence ! Cette dernière a, du reste, commencé de dégaîner ses produits à l’occasion du Mobile World Congress 2012, Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 et Asus Pad fone ou Eepad en tête. Laissant passer l’orage, Apple semble suivre attentivement le mouvement et, tout en entretenant le suspens autour de son (ou ses produits), s’adapte à un marché en plein essor.L’argent est le nerf de la guerre, on le sait. Et il est difficile de se faire une place sur le marché de la tablette, aujourd’hui presque saturé. Et pourtant, l’Ipad d’Apple a toujours fait office de référence…Jusqu’à aujourd’hui. Samsung, Fujitsu, Panasonic, Sony et consorts…Tout le monde veut sa part du gâteau, quitte à donner des indigestions de choix au consommateur ! Tous rivalise d’ingéniosité pour permettre “l’experience tablette” sous diverses forme : tailles diverses, simple ou double écran, éléments clipsables ou à intégrer à une surface principale…Une frénésie étrange qui pourrait cacher une peur : le retour du Roi Ipad.Mais pourquoi pas un Ipad plus petit ? Les premiers éléments de réponse autour de cette question datent du mois dernier, quand Ezra Gottheil, analyste chez Technology Business Research avait lancé cette phrase : que cela a “toujours été dans les plans d’Apple de développer une tablette 7 pouces”.Une rumeur immédiatement démentie par les organes officieux de la firme de Cupertino (qui, elle, a toujours dit qu’elle ne verrait pas l’intérêt d’une tablette de petite taille), comme le blog de Jim Dalrymple. Mais il est trop tard, la réactivité épidermique du marché de la tablette était déjà en train de se modifier.Ipad mini, le Kindle Fire “killer” ?Les tablettes “classiques” de 10 pouces ou plus d’un coté, les mini de 7 à 9 pouces de l’autre. Voilà les nouvelles voies de l’ardoise numérique. Le succès des liseuses interactives et de produits hybride comme le Kindle Fire d’Amazon démontrent la viabilité non concurrentielle des deux marchés, et, une fois encore, les firmes concurrentes d’Apple prennent position. Elles vont même jusqu’à mélanger les genres, unifiant smartphones et mini-tablettes comme le Samsung Galaxy Note ou, dernièrement, l’Eluga Power de Panasonic, dévoilé au Mobile World Congress 2012. Et maintenant que la concurrence a dévoilé les nouveaux cadres du marché de la tablette tactile, devinez qui arrive ? Apple. Et le géant californien ne compte pas arriver à la keynote du 7 mars les mains vides. L’Ipad 3 y sera présenté, certes, mais il sera peut être accompagné.Cette fois ci, l’information est issue du site Digitimes, dont les sources seraient proches d’Apple. Elles expliqueraient que “le projet de lancement d’un iPad 7,85 pouces sert apparemment à contrer le Kindle d’Amazon, un 7 pouces à 199 dollars, et un modèle comparable chez Barnes & Noble, même si Apple possède près de 60 % du marché des tablettes en 2011. Le prix de l’iPad 7,85 pouces est susceptible d’être fixé à 249/299 dollars, puisque Apple va également sortir un iPad 2 de 8 Go aux Etats-Unis pour 349-399 dollars.”À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Voilà qui a le mérite d’être clair : un Ipad de petite taille pour contrer la concurrence sur le marché des mini-tablettes, un modèle “classique” avec prix revu à la baisse (comme pour l’Iphone 4) pour contrer les standards du domaine. Quant à l’Ipad 3, ces sources croient savoir qu’Apple travailleraient sur 4 versions de la nouvelle dalle (une de 16 GB et une de 32 GB Wifi, avec ou sans la 3G+ prise en compte), en guise de produit haut de gamme.Après avoir hésité puis observé les nouvelles règles du milieu, Apple semble donc s’adapter totalement au marché et à son contexte, tel un chameléon.Avec 6 tablettes prévues en 2012, la firme se préparerait à une guerre totale avec ses concurrents.Le 3 mars 2012 à 12:00 • Maxime Lambert

Nalgonda: Mahatma Gandhi University Vice-Chancellor Khaza Altaf Hussain stated that trees play an important role in balancing the ecosystem.On Friday, he launched Haritha Haram programme of NSS-unit 1 of Arts College students of the university on varsity premises. Speaking on the occasion, he emphasised on the need to increase forest cover to control increasing temperatures, for rains at right time and to control the pollution. He advised the students to plant a sapling on the occasion of their birthdays, wedding anniversaries of their loved ones besides protecting them till they are on their own. On the day, the NSS Unit 1 volunteers planted as many as 200 saplings on varsity premises. University Registrar M Yadagiri, NSS programme officer Madhu, Dr Alwala Ravi and students of Arts College participated in the programme.
Unseen Passages, an art show that exhibits the works from the studios of two young and discerning women is on in the Capital that started off on 13 October. Delhi based artist Pallavi Singh’s series Desire to be Desired explores her observations of male vanity and the conditions that feed it. Punctuating the generation of the millennial is easier and faster access to information resulting in renewed socialisation and an increased interest in one’s self-image. Singh breaks away from the stereotype by focusing on the urban male to whom fashion and grooming are an important norm. A middle–aged potbellied bald man is her choice of protagonist, comically represented fussing over his physical appearance. The comment is intended to be both realistic and ironic, with Singh ensuring that the viewer steps aside from the work wearing a smile.

By morphing cells of blood into roses through valleys and volcanoes, her art posits the bittersweet moments. Khurasani’s current series Silent Landscapes reveals a resistance to violence and the telling impact of its trauma in rows, swirls and circles that inform the viewer of a never-ending cycle of repression and defiance.

It’s a message that hundreds of sexual health organizations and advocacy groups worldwide are now backing.NAM’s Executive Director, Matthew Hodson, said in a statement, ‘This is the moment when science trumps stigma. This is the moment when facts must conquer fear.‘The knowledge that when we are undetectable we can’t pass the virus on to our sexual partners has the power to encourage people to test and to remain adherent to their treatment. Just as importantly it can have an impact on the way that people with HIV think about themselves, removing some of the stress and fear that many in our communities experience.’‘People who are on effective and successful treatment cannot pass on HIV to their partners’Ian Howley, Chief Executive of British health charity LGBT Hero, also welcomed the study’s findings.‘What the PARTNER 2 study does is prove once again that people who are on effective and successful treatment cannot pass on HIV to their partners. This should be reassuring to every gay and bisexual man who is HIV-undetectable that you are not a danger to anyone and no person should use your status as a way to reject you.‘However, the results of the PARTNER 2 study will not wipe away the stigma those living with HIV receive overnight. We have to continue to push the message and help educate those who still don’t believe the science behind the U=U movement.’See alsoAustralian doctors to tell HIV patients that ‘undetectable = untransmittable’ HIV treatment successful in preventing transmission of virus even without condoms The results of a major new study into HIV transmission have been announced at the International AIDS Conference in Amsterdam.

It looked at 635 gay couples, in addition to the 337 gay couples already recruited for PARTNER 1.Participants reported nearly 77,000 acts of condomless sex. The study found not a single incident of HIV transmission when the HIV-positive partner had a viral load under 200.In fact, together with another study, Opposites Attract, researchers have been unable to find a single case of HIV transmission in 126,000 acts of condomless anal sex between partners with differing HIV status.‘Zero risk’Aidsmap, which reported the PARTNER 2 findings, states: ‘It remains the case that the most likely probability, by far, that an HIV-positive person with a viral load under 200 copies/ml can infect their partner is zero.’‘We looked so hard for transmissions,’ researcher Alison Rodger told aidsmap.com. ‘And we didn’t find any.’
Finance Minister Harris Georgiades said on Tuesday there was no point in the state borrowing money to return some €7.5bn taken from the Social Insurance Fund (SIF) by various administrations in the past.The massive debt to the SIF is the result of years of governments borrowing from the fund to plug holes in public finances.Speaking in parliament on Tuesday, Georgiades said borrowing money to replenish the SIF meant raising the public debt.“They are communicating vessels. There is no logic raising the debt and having the general government paying interest for the fund to engage in investment policy without any yields,” he told the House labour committee.Georgiades said the government guaranteed the SIF reserve and would cover any shortfalls, as it did in the unemployment fund in recent years.The minister said a reserve would be created from day one of a steady flow of revenue from natural gas.“In theory we could say that part of the reserve would be on behalf of the SIF,” he said.Georgiades and Labour Minister Zeta Emilianidou stressed that investments should not exceed the state’s cost of borrowing from international markets.“Any investment would affect the state’s reserves and the public debt because the SIF is part of the general government,” Emilianidou said. “If the cost of borrowing is four per cent, there cannot be an investment from the fund yielding three per cent because that would be an increase of public debt.”Emilianidou said the government has prepared a bill abolishing the SIF’s capacity to make investments – it will be transferred to the national investment fund, known better as the hydrocarbons fund.
