Share’s Summer Meals program offering free meals to kids throughout Clark County begins Monday.“Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a child’s need for good nutrition,” Becci Read-Ryan, Share’s hunger response assistant director, said in a news release. “Share’s Summer Meals program provides free meals to all children ages 18 and under so that they can get the nutrition they need to learn, play and grow throughout the summer months when they are out of school.”Families can call the Family Food Hotline 1-866-348-6479 or text “food” or “comida” to 877-877 to receive updated information about locations for free lunches for children across the state.The program, which runs through Aug. 9, serves fresh, healthy meals at 20 locations, including apartment complexes, local schools, Police Activities League camps, Vancouver-Clark Parks & Recreation camps and local churches. A complete list of times and locations is available at www.sharevancouver.org/programs/share-summer-meals-program. All children are welcome to attend even if they’re not enrolled in the program.Summer Meals relies on dozens of volunteers who prepare meals at Covington Middle School, host meal sites, deliver meals to each location and return coolers to the school. “Of particular challenge for us this year is recruiting enough volunteers to deliver meals,” Molly Evjen, director of volunteers and community resources, said in a news release.To sign up to volunteer, contact Evjen at firstname.lastname@example.org or 360-952-8228. Volunteers are required to complete a background check and Share’s volunteer application, which is online at www.sharevancouver.org/volunteer/volunteer-application.

The pilot group that consisted of 13 boys was mentored by the Guidance and Counseling Department in collaboration with the Department of Youth Affairs. The facilitators of the program were Ms. Diane Paul, Guidance Counselor who is also a certified substance abuse counselor and Mr. Nixon Dickenson, Youth Director (acting). The topics covered during the program helped students to be aware of the dangers of drug use, resistance skills and focused on social challenges that contribute to drug use.The culminating ceremony was held on February 8, 2018 on the school’s campus which was attended by parents of the participants. The feature address was given by Mr. Nixon Dickenson, remarks from the school’s principal and a testimonial by Rodlin Yliodas one of the participants. Each student received a certificate of participation.The Long Bay High School remains committed to the holistic development of our students as we prepare them for lifelong learning.Press Release: TCIG
ASA Washington staff joined a coalition of agricultural stakeholders in meeting with senior EPA officials to discuss pollinator health issues, including the importance of maintaining registrations for important seed-treatment products widely used by soybean farmers. “Pollinators” is the widely-used term that includes honey bees, native bees, birds, bats and butterflies.Leading the meeting was Jim Jones, Assistant Administrator of the Office of Chemical Safety & Pollution Prevention, who encouraged the group to find ways to work with beekeeping organizations and explained that under the Pollinator Health Task Force, established by President Obama, EPA is responsible for all pesticide issues and USDA is largely responsible for issues pertaining to pollinator habitat. Scientists believe that bee losses are likely caused by a combination of stressors, including poor bee nutrition, loss of forage lands, parasites, pathogens, lack of genetic diversity, and exposure to pesticides. Jones reminded the group to stay focused on the “end game” of increasing pollinator populations. ASA will continue to engage with both EPA and USDA on pollinator issues, focusing on both the science surrounding crop protection products as well as ways to improve forage.
Britain’s vote to leave the EU has sparked a debate after Irish nationalists called for a referendum on reunification less than two decades after Northern Ireland’s historic peace deal.After last June’s Brexit referendum outcome, Irish nationalists instantly began clamouring for a so-called border poll to allow people in Northern Ireland to vote on Irish reunification.When Britain leaves the European Union its only land border with the bloc will be between Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland, which people can currently cross freely.The impact of such a change has prompted Brussels to make Ireland once of its top priorities for Brexit negotiations, less than 20 years since a hard-won peace accord ended decades of violence in Northern Ireland.EU leaders at a summit in Brussels last month said Northern Ireland would be automatically welcomed back into the bloc if it ever voted to become part of the Republic, although the prospect is currently far off despite rallying cries from Irish nationalists.Ireland’s Foreign Minister Charlie Flanagan told the BBC this week that the Brexit vote “may well” have made a referendum more likely but dismissed the prospect saying: “That time is not now.””I don’t believe that a debate now on the merits or otherwise of a united Ireland is timely or appropriate.”I don’t believe that we should conflate the issue of the reunification of Ireland with the withdrawal of the UK from the European Union.”- Brexit ‘changed everything’ -Brexit has however brought back reunification as a talking point, in a society where bitter political, historical, cultural and socio-economic divisions between pro-British, mainly Protestant, unionists and pro-Irish, mainly Catholic, nationalists are still readily apparent.In the United Kingdom’s June 2016 referendum on its EU membership — in which British, Irish and Commonwealth residents could vote — some 52 percent voted to leave the bloc.But within Northern Ireland, on a 63 percent turnout — the lowest in the kingdom — some 56 percent voted for the UK to remain in the EU.The Irish nationalist party Sinn Fein, once the political arm of the Irish Republican Army paramilitary group, has called for a border poll in the next five years.”Brexit has changed everything,” Sinn Fein European Parliament member Matt Carthy told a recent party gathering.”The prospect of the north being dragged out of the European Union against the democratically expressed wishes of people there has horrified citizens across the political spectrum,” he said.The possibility of a referendum is provided for in the 1998 Good Friday Agreement, which ended three decades of armed conflict in Northern Ireland.However, any such referendum could only be held if the British government approved the move.Unlike in Scotland, where opinions are more evenly divided on seceding from the UK, the polls in Northern Ireland indicate overwhelming support for the union.The most recent one in September showed 63 percent in favour.- Impact of Brexit deal -From its creation in 1921, Northern Ireland’s in-built Protestant majority has always expressed an antipathy towards what it regarded as a southern Irish state too closely aligned to the Catholic Church.But, as former British prime minister Tony Blair, who negotiated the 1998 peace accords, said Saturday, Brexit marks the first time that the UK and the Republic have “not been in step with each other”.But Irish nationalists argue that as a majority in Northern Ireland voted Remain in the EU referendum, including many unionists, this in itself is enough to warrant a testing of the waters.Their case was bolstered in Northern Ireland regional assembly elections in March when a nationalist surge ended the unionist majority for the first time and further victories in the June 8 UK general election could help.According to Dublin-based political commentator Johnny Farrell, a lot will depend on the shape of the Brexit deal.”If things go badly for Britain then the situation could change very, very quickly because people in Northern Ireland could decide their economic interests are served better by remaining part of Europe by voting for a united Ireland,” he said.
Prothom Alo file photoThe youth unemployment rate in Bangladesh has almost doubled over the past seven years according to the International Labour Organisation (ILO). In its ‘Asia-Pacific Employment and Social Outlook 2018’ report released on Friday, ILO pointed out that the jobless rate among the youths (age 15-24) rose to 12.8 per cent in 2017 from 6.32 per cent in 2000. The survey report has highlighted youth employment, unemployment, the rate of youth not in education, employment or training, formal and informal employment, job satisfaction and more, based on 28 countries from 2010 to 2017. In Bangladesh, the rate of youth who are not engaged in education, employment or training is 27.4 per cent. Rizwanul Islam, a former special adviser to the ILO’s employment sector, told Prothom Alo that he would not comment on the ILO report as he was yet to have a look on it. But he thinks the number of educated jobless youth has increased as per the data of Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics. “How the growth of gross domestic product (GDP) is contributing to creating additional job sectors is questionable. Again, how the education that youth are receiving is helping them find jobs is not beyond question,” said Rizwanul Islam. A BBS survey report published in April last shows some 2,677,000 youth were found jobless in 2016-17 fiscal which was 87,000 more than the previous year. That time, some 40,000 young people who obtained their graduation degree were unemployed while 63,800 jobless youths were HSC passed. According to the ILO report, the number of jobless youth who have higher education is 10.7 per cent and it is 8 per cent who completed their SSC. But, the rate of unemployed youth who could not complete their primary education was only 1.8 per cent. Shamsul Alam, a member of General Economic Division of the Planning Commission, told Prothom Alo, “The youth who have completed their higher education don’t think themselves employed unless they get their desired jobs. They don’t consider teaching in coaching centres or freelancing online as their work.” “Our education system, I think, has to be made market-oriented and we need to turn our manpower as skilled as required in the industrial sector,” he added. According to the ILO, a person does not remain unemployed if he/she works at least one hour in a week. The ILO report also reads that the overall employment rate in the country was 3.3 per cent in 2000 and 3.4 per cent in 2010. But it jumped to 4.4 per cent in 2013 and remained the same in 2016 and 2017. Some 3.3 per cent jobless people are male while 12.8 per cent are female. As defined by the ILO, people who are out of work, want a job, have actively sought work in the previous four weeks and are available to start work within the next fortnight come under unemployed category. * This piece, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Imam Hossain.
Prime minister Sheikh Hasina. File PhotoAwami League president, prime minister Sheikh Hasina on Wednesday launched her party’s election campaign seeking vote for ‘boat’ in the upcoming national elections, UNB reports from Tungipara, Gopalganj.”Hope hope, you’ll give us another chance toserve the country through ensuring our win by casting vote for Boat,” she told a public rally at Sheikh Lutfar Rahman Government Degree College ground in Kotalipara.”The country is moving forward with the liberation war spirit. With this spirit Bangladesh is moving fast keeping its head high in the world,” said the AL chief.”You’ll have to cast vote for boat to give a fitting reply to those who joined hands with the anti-liberation forces, war criminals, convicts, arson terrorists, and made them election candidates,” she said.Hasina went on to say: “Bangladesh will celebrate the golden jubilee of independence in 2021. We don’t want to see war criminals, anti-liberation forces, murderers, arson terrorists in power that time. They’ll destroy the country and the liberation war spirit.””We’ll build hunger-free, poverty-free Sonar Bangla (golden Bengal) as dreamt by father of the nation. I’m urging you to cast vote for the candidates who were nominated by Awami League.””We want another chance so that the progress of Bangladesh doesn’t falter so that our people stand in the international arena keeping their head high,” Hasina added.People will never be deprived of if they cast vote for Awami League, she said.Kotalipara upazila AL president Subash Joy Dhar presided over the programme.Sheikh Hasian’s younger sister Sheikh Hasina, AL leaders Sheikh Abdullah, Sheikh Fazlul Karim Selim, Kazi AkramUddin Ahmed, Jahangir Kabir Nanak, Abdur Rahman, BM Mozammel, Bahauddin Nasim, Afzal Hossain, Sujit Nandi, SM Kamal Hossain and film stars Reaz and Ferdous were present.Hasina arrived in Tungipara at 2:10pm starting her journey by road around 8:22am from her official residence Ganobhaban.She first paid homage to father of the nation Bangabandhu Sheikh Mujibur Rahman at his mausoleum by placing a wreath as the prime minister.

Saudi Arabian royal Al-Waleed Bin Talal bin Abdulaziz al Saud looking on during a meeting with Sri Lankan Foreign Minister Ravi Karunanayake in Colombo. AFP file photoSaudi Arabia released billionaire prince Al-Waleed bin Talal on Saturday nearly three months after his arrest in an anti-corruption drive targeting the kingdom’s elite, a business associate told AFP.“He (Prince Al-Waleed) is out,” the associate said, requesting anonymity as he was not authorised to speak to the media.Prince Al-Waleed, dubbed the Warren Buffett of Saudi Arabia, was among some 350 suspects rounded up since 4 November, including billionaire tycoons and ministers who were detained in Riyadh’s luxury Ritz-Carlton hotel.Prince Al-Waleed is the latest in a series of high-profile detainees to be freed from the hotel. The terms of his release were not immediately clear.The Saudi information ministry did not respond to AFP’s requests for comment.Authorities have previously said most of those detained struck monetary settlements in exchange for their freedom, which could earn state coffers about $100 billion.Another high-profile detainee, former National Guard chief prince Miteb bin Abdullah, was released recently following his “settlement” with authorities which reportedly exceeded $1 billion.The windfall settlements will help the government finance a multi-million dollar package announced by king Salman this month to help citizens cope with the rising cost of living, finance minister Mohammed al-Jadaan told Al Arabiya television in Davos on Wednesday.Some critics have labelled the campaign a shakedown, but authorities insist the purge targeted endemic corruption as Saudi Arabia seeks to diversify its oil-dependent economy.The Ritz-Carlton is set to reopen for business next month as the campaign draws to an end, sources at the hotel have said. Its website lists rooms as available from 14 February.

Update: It’s official, Robert Pattinson is the new Batman. But while we may have seen this coming, our original point remains that it pays to be patient.Last night the internet had a… dramatic reaction to the “news” that Robert Pattitson had been cast as Bruce Wayne in Matt Reeves’ Batman movie, just called The Batman, coming in summer 2021. Some folks were ready to write angry petitions about the one-time sparkly vampire boy playing the Dark Knight. Other folks were ready to laugh at those dumb dudes. And other folks still were excited because in the years since Twilight Pattinson has shown that he’s, uh, a pretty good actor.But bottle up those takes for just a little while longer because now we’ve learned that there isn’t an official new Batman yet. According to a report on Deadline, while Pattinson is indeed a frontrunner, he hasn’t yet secured the role.Furthermore, Nicholas Hoult, fellow young English actor who you may remember as Beast in the new X-Men movies or the woke War Boy in Mad Max: Fury Road, is also in the running. Reminds me of the time we were all convinced Asa Butterfield would play Spider-Man and then Tom Holland swung in.Still, there’s a good chance Robert Pattinson will end up as the new Batman, and that’s totally fine. His next movie is a Christopher Nolan movie even. While the quality of the movies have gone up and down, in my opinion the track record of Batman casting has been pretty consistent.That’s impressive when you consider previous Bat-actors are as varied as Michael Keaton, George Clooney, Ben Affleck, Kevin Conroy Christian Bale, and Will Arnett. Plus Matt Reeves is a great director (watch those Planet of the Apes movies again) who has had plenty of time to think about the script and the kind of performers he wants for it.The Batman, starring somebody, releases in theaters June 25, 2021. For more on Batman watch him fight the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and check out the trailers for the Alfred Pennyworth prequel series and Joker origin movie that exist for some reason.

Citation: Two new species of fish found able to regenerate a lost fin (2012, February 23) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-02-species-fish-regenerate-lost-fin.html Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences Explore further (PhysOrg.com) — History has shown that many invertebrates are able to regenerate lost limbs. Rare however, are animals with backbones that are able to do so, and when they do exist, they are usually amphibians or a few species of fish that regenerate parts that are mostly made of skin-like material. Thus the discovery of two species of Polypterus bichir, fish found in Africa, that can regenerate a lost side (pectoral) fin in as little as a month has created some excitement in the scientific community. Such fish are ray-finned, which means their fins are made up of skin-like webbing stretched between bony structures connected directly to the skeleton. Rodrigo Cuervo, a biologist with Veracruz University in Mexico discovered the fish’s unique abilities and has co-written a paper about them with colleagues. They have published the results of their findings in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. In addition to being a unique find, the discovery suggests that those early fish a long time ago who first hoisted themselves up on land, likely also had such an ability. This is because bichir share traits with both modern amphibians and ancient four-limbed creatures that are known to have walked on land.Scientists don’t know why some animals can regenerate body parts, while others such as humans cannot; they’d really like to of course, because it might lead to a way to cause it to happen when it’s needed. What’s exciting about the bichir discovery is that it means regeneration of limbs that contain real bone is possible and by studying them, researchers might be able to figure out how it is made to happen.Also of interest is how accurate the newly regenerated fins were found to be. Many regenerations are not. In humans for example, when skin is regenerated, it quite often remains noticeable due to the differences between normal skin and scar tissue. The same thing happens when bones are broken and then mend. With the bichir fins, the researchers found that the new ones were almost perfect reproductions of the ones they’d lost. They also found that the fish can also regenerate their tails if lost, though this feature is not nearly as remarkable as the tail doesn’t have bones that are connected to the skeleton.

Fish out of water: Gene clue to evolutionary step More information: Full regeneration of the tribasal Polypterus fin, PNAS, Published online before print February 21, 2012, doi: 10.1073/pnas.1006619109AbstractFull limb regeneration is a property that seems to be restricted to urodele amphibians. Here we found that Polypterus, the most basal living ray-finned fish, regenerates its pectoral lobed fins with a remarkable accuracy. Pectoral Polypterus fins are complex, formed by a well-organized endoskeleton to which the exoskeleton rays are connected. Regeneration initiates with the formation of a blastema similar to that observed in regenerating amphibian limbs. Retinoic acid induces dose-dependent phenotypes ranging from inhibition of regeneration to apparent anterior–posterior duplications. As in all developing tetrapod limbs and regenerating amphibian blastema, Sonic hedgehog is expressed in the posterior mesenchyme during fin regeneration. Hedgehog signaling plays a role in the regeneration and patterning processes: an increase or reduction of fin bony elements results when this signaling is activated or disrupted, respectively. The tail fin also regenerates but, in contrast with pectoral fins, regeneration can resume after release from the arrest caused by hedgehog inhibition. A comparative analysis of fin phenotypes obtained after retinoic acid treatment or altering the hedgehog signaling levels during regeneration allowed us to assign a limb tetrapod equivalent segment to Polypterus fin skeletal structures, thus providing clues to the origin of the autopod. We propose that appendage regeneration was a common property of vertebrates during the fin to limb transition.via ScienceNews © 2011 PhysOrg.com This document is subject to copyright.

“I’m game for everything which is correct and good. But yes, the show should make me feel that I have something to give to the audience. Then only will I be able to say ‘yes’ to TV shows,” the actor, who was in the capital during the launch of the dance reality show, told IANS.Govinda’s last appearance on TV was as a host on Jeeto Chappar Phaad Ke in 2001.On DID Super Moms, Govinda will judge the Zee TV show along with choreographers Geeta Kapur and Terence Lewis. Also Read – A fresh blend of fameAsked about the reason of giving a nod to DID Super Moms, the actor says his mother was the reason.“Mother has always been special to me. My mother is very responsible for whatever success I have achieved today, and I’m sure many people will accept that too. A mother is one of the most beautiful creatures made by god. I think this was one of the reasons why I said ‘yes’ to this show,” he said.Geeta is equally excited about working with Govinda after a long time.“Govinda sir is the reason why I’m in this field and it’s an honour to work with him through this show. I remember that after watching his dance moves, I was dying to work with him and I got this opportunity during an award function but that was a brief encounter. Today I can say that god always has better plans,” she told IANS. Starting on March 28, the new season has plenty of things to delight dance lovers.

For the study, which is ongoing, Dörner and colleagues used cardiac magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to measure the effect of energy drink consumption on heart function in 18 healthy volunteers, including 15 men and three women with a mean age of 27.5 years. Each of the volunteers underwent cardiac MRI before and one hour after consuming an energy drink containing taurine (400 mg/100 ml) and caffeine (32 mg/100 ml).

There are many side effects known to be associated with a high intake of caffeine, including rapid heart rate, palpitations, rise in blood pressure and, in the most severe cases, seizures or sudden death.” “We don’t know exactly how or if this greater contractility of the heart impacts daily activities or athletic performance,” said Dörner. “We need additional studies to understand this mechanism and to determine how long the effect of the energy drink lasts.” The principal investigator of the study was Daniel Thomas, M.D. Other co-authors are Daniel Kuetting, M.D., Claas Naehle, M.D., and Hans Schild, M.D. The researchers found no significant differences in heart rate, blood pressure or the amount of blood ejected from the left ventricle of the heart between the volunteers’ baseline and second MRI exams.

To visualize cardiac magnetic resonance tagging, cross-section of the heart in common imaging technique is seen on the left and tagged myocardium using CSPAMM on the right.December 2, 2013 — Healthy adults who consumed energy drinks high in caffeine and taurine had significantly increased heart contraction rates one hour later, according to a study presented at the the Radiological Society of North America Annual Meeting (RSNA 2013). Compared to the baseline images, results of cardiac MRI performed one hour after the study participants consumed the energy drink revealed significantly increased peak strain and peak systolic strain rates in the left ventricle of the heart. “We’ve shown that energy drink consumption has a short-term impact on cardiac contractility,” said Dörner. “Further studies are needed to evaluate the impact of long-term energy drink consumption and the effect of such drinks on individuals with heart disease.” Dörner said that while long-term risks to the heart from drinking energy drinks remain unknown, he advises that children, as well as people with known cardiac arrhythmias, should avoid energy drinks, because changes in contractility could trigger arrhythmias. He also cautions that additional study is needed to address risks posed by the consumption of energy drinks in combination with alcohol. Energy drinks represent a multibillion-dollar industry that is growing every day. While teenagers and young adults have traditionally been the largest consumers, in recent years more people of all demographics have begun consuming energy drinks.
