Sophia Doumanihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sophia-doumani/ ReddIt Sophia Doumanihttps://www.tcu360.com/author/sophia-doumani/ ReddIt TCU places second in the National Student Advertising Competition, the highest in school history printStudents will have an opportunity to step out of the classroom Tuesday to learn how health care extends beyond professional settings and influences personal lives.The Global Impact on Healthcare, a conjoined interdisciplinary effort among faculty, is bringing five healthcare professionals to campus who are known for bringing care and training to people in areas of the world that lack access and resources.The panelists will meet with classes and attend a lunch and dinner before gathering in the ballroom of the Brown-Lupton University Union at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday to address the 109 questions that have already been submitted by students.Associate Dean for Nursing Suzy Lockwood said listening to these speakers is important because as a country, we can become narrow-minded with healthcare. She gave the example of the Ebola outbreak last year.“All of these diseases that we think are so far away and that we can’t be exposed to in the United States really are just a plane ride away,” Lockwood said. “Not only can we be exposed to all of those things, but we can make a difference.”Lockwood said healthcare affects everybody, so the event is not only for nursing students, but also for anyone who understands the importance of having strong leaders.The panel features Dr. Ric Bonnell, Dr. John Gibson, (RN PhD) Mary Foley, Dr. David Knight and Dr. John Podgore.Bonnell, TCU alumnus and director of global health at Dell Children’s Medical Center of Central Texas, organized a medical team to deliver care and treatment to those devastated by the 2010 earthquake in Haiti. Since then he has taken several missionary trips to Haiti and adopted five Haitian children.Gibson, director of Global Health Education at UNT, served 20 years as a medical missionary in Thailand. He was the founding director of the Thai Peoples Welfare Foundation and is certified in tropical medicine and travel health.Foley has been a nurse for 42 years. She was on the board of the National Patient Safety Foundation and currently works to promote safe care for patients and workers in the United States and across the globe.Knight, a general surgeon at Waterbury Hospital in Waterbury, Connecticut, is the president and founder of Loupes Around the World. He spends two weeks every September and March working at the John F. Kennedy Hospital in Monrovia, Liberia. He and his team have operated on approximately 450 people abroad.Podgore was a medical officer and pediatric infectious disease consultant in the U.S. Army for 21 years. He served in Vietnam and Egypt and conducted field research overseas in places such as Somalia, Thailand and Peru.Ashlea Harper, a teaching assistant in the biology department, said she attended the panel discussion last year and was inspired by their stories.“To enter a part of the world, bringing in resources that aren’t available, you’re making an investment to change the quality of life for someone for the long-term,” Harper said. “That’s a huge impact you’re making, in just doing something voluntarily on your own time.”Clark Jones, the TCU biology instructor who led the effort to organize the event, said the event’s slogan “Give Thanks. Give Relief” comes with a profound backstory he and his staff are incorporating this year.“It’s only fitting being a week before Thanksgiving, we should not only reflect on our own lives, but on the lives of everybody around the world, especially professionals who are giving relief through education, healthcare and teaching,” Jones said.Jones said he hopes the Global Impact on Healthcare will become an annual event TCU hosts and will spread across different areas of study on campus.“The university’s mission encourages pursuing a global perspective, and this discussion prompts students to consider what it means to be a global citizen,” Jones said. “We expect this initiative to grow as we continue to have more students and classes interested and involved.”Jones said there are opportunities everywhere to engage in issues and aspects of healthcare, and if we look closely at our own lives, we can begin drawing some parallels.“We all have our impact, whether it’s local or somewhere else in the world,” Jones said. “That’s the most important thing. If we can’t be there, maybe we can inspire someone else to.” Twitter TCU may become a smoke and tobacco-free campus Sophia Doumani The College of Science and Engineering Dean, Phil Hartman, retires after 40 consecutive years Facebook + posts Linkedin TCU Frog Camps returning to more traditional look this summer Dr. Ric Bonnell poses with Ruth and Moliere Jacques in Haiti.

Quadri and African Cup champion, Egypt’s Ahmed Saleh, will compete in the men’s event, while African Cup women’s champion Dina Meshref of Egypt is the sole representative of Africa in the women’s World Cup.According to ITTF, the World Cups will feature 20 female and 20 male athletes, including the World Champion, qualified players from all completed continental events (Africa, Europe and Pan America) and players selected by world ranking from the other continents (Asia and Oceania) as well as the whole world according to the provisional World Cup playing system.The players from Asia are the same who would have played at the 2020 Asian Cup, had it not been cancelled due to COVID-19.Quadri was selected based on the world ranking, which makes him the highest ranked African in the world rated 20th in the globe and he will be participating in his third consecutive World Cups being the first African to qualify to the quarterfinal stage of the competition following his exploits at the 2014 edition in Dusseldorf, Germany.The men’s star-studded field includes China’s Ma Long, who is considered by many as the greatest table tennis player of all time, and he will be looking to add the 2020 Men’s World Cup to his burgeoning trophy cabinet. Ma Long is joined by world no.1, Fan Zhendong (China), who lifted the 2019 Men’s World Cup in Chengdu, as well as a number of other top Asian players to have qualified via their world ranking, such as teenage talents, Tomokazu Harimoto (Japan), world no.4 and just 16 years of age, and Lin Yun-Ju (Chinese Taipei), world no.7 and 18 years old.Europe is providing plenty of strength, especially in the form of German pair, Timo Boll, who qualifies off the back of his 2019 Europe Cup victory, and Dimitrij Ovtcharov, the former world no.1 entering as a wild card.Tags: aruna quadriCOVID-19ITTFWorld Cuplast_img read more

Canada Launches New Programmes to Welcome Caribbean Immigrants

first_imgMONCTON, Canada, CMC – Canada’s immigration agency says it has launched over 800 projects across the country to boost settlement and integration of Caribbean and other new immigrants. Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC) said it has selected 824 projects that will “deliver high-quality services to newcomers across the country for up to five years.” IRCC said one such project is with the Boys and Girls Club of Moncton, New Brunswick. It said this new service provider organization will work with youth ages 13 to 18 in the Moncton area, “bringing newcomers and locally-born youth together to form trusting relationships through a variety of activities, mentorship, career development, community, political and civic engagement, advocacy, volunteerism, shared entrepreneurial goals and leadership development.”IRCC said the project will promote intercultural understanding, foster enduring links, and help youth – “regardless of where they were born – to develop new skills that set them up for success.”It said other partners involved in this project include all levels of government, Atlantic Superstore, and local business leaders and corporate partners who will provide mentorship opportunities, such as the Royal Bank of Canada (RBC), Midland, Irving and Medavie Blue Cross.Through IRCC’s Settlement Program, eligible newcomers receive information about life in Canada and the community in which they will settle, language training, help finding a job, and connections with established immigrants and Canadians. “These supports and services help newcomers integrate and build a successful life in Canada, while also helping employers, schools and other organizations build welcoming communities,” IRCC said.“The Resettlement Assistance Programme provides supports and services to address the immediate and essential needs of government-assisted refugees and other eligible clients being resettled to Canada from overseas,” it added.IRCC said projects selected through the National Call for Proposals include language training and workplace-based language instruction that will help newcomers settle and gain relevant skills; employment services that will foster the entrepreneurial spirit of newcomers and engage private sector employers; and projects that enhance local integration and social inclusion in small-center, rural and northern areas.The newly-chosen projects complement those selected through the Service Delivery Improvement Programme, Pre-Arrival Services Programme and Visible Minority Newcomer Women Program, IRCC said. “Canada is a recognized international leader in settlement and integration. We firmly believe that when we invest in helping newcomers learn the language, find employment, and build a successful life, all of Canada benefits,” said Ahmed Hussen, Canada’s Minister of Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship. “The Boys and Girls Club of Moncton project is an example of innovative programming that helps newcomers make the most of their talents to fully integrate and contribute to the Canadian economy and to their communities,” he added. On February 18, IRCC said it began accepting proposals from eligible individuals and organizations to provide direct services to newcomers. On March 27, IRCC said it began accepting proposals for indirect settlement services, such as research and capacity building.“After a thorough review of the proposals received, 824 projects have been selected to deliver services that are client-centered, outcomes-driven and responsive to needs and that use resources effectively,” IRCC said.last_img read more

Barca linked with midfelder

first_imgBarcelona are interested in Chelsea prodigy Ruben Loftus-Cheek, according to the Daily Mirror.The midfielder, 16, is also said to have attracted interest from both Manchester clubs as he is yet to sign a contract at Stamford Bridge.Both The Guardian and Daily Mail say Chelsea manager Andre Villas-Boas’ recent comments to a Portuguese radio station did not go down well with the club’s hierarchy.Villas-Boas is said to have annoyed Chelsea officials.The Mirror and Sun both include pictures of Jose Mourinho in London, prompting speculation that the ex-Chelsea boss could return to his former club or succeed Harry Redknapp at Tottenham.The Sun believe Mourinho viewed five properties in the Knightsbridge and Mayfair areas and ate out in Chelsea.Chelsea’s contract talks with Didier Drogba have stalled after the player said he wanted an annual salary of £6m, say the Mail.Meanwhile, The Sun claim Walter Samuel’s refusal to sign a new deal with Inter Milan will spark a three-way fight for his signature between Arsenal, Spurs and Chelsea.The Argentine centre-back, 33, is out of contract this summer but it is claimed he will demand £90,000 a week in wages.His agent Barry O’Connor said: “Ideally Walter would like to come to London but he will listen to all offers.”The Sun also say Chelsea midfielder Frank Lampard has been putting in extra training sessions after being overlooked by England.Finally, The Independent pick up on a QPR website interview with club chairman Tony Fernandes, who has pledged to stay on if Rangers are relegated.Fernandes said: “I’m not going to run away. I started an airline with two planes, been through SARS, bird flu, a Tsunami, an earthquake, terrorism and airports closed for seven days.“Relegation isn’t going to scare me. It’s a long-term project and Rome wasn’t built in a day.“Along the way there will be hiccups. But when you look back in 15 and 20 years’ time, we will be proud of what we achieved.”Follow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more

Digicel First Operator To Implement Ad Control Technology To Improve Customer Experience

first_img TCI Govt meets with Digicel and Carnival Cruise Lines Digicel T&T Donates Supplies to Anguilla and British Virgin Islands Related Items:ad control technology, digicel, jaimca Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppWednesday, 30th September 2015 — Kingston, Jamaica. Digicel, a leading provider of communications and entertainment services to customers in the Caribbean and South Pacific, announced today that it is deploying ad control technology at the network level on its networks across the globe to ensure a better experience for customers and to encourage the likes of Google, Facebook and Yahoo to help connect the 4.2 billion unconnected people across the globe. Ad control technology benefits both consumers and network operators alike. With ads using up as much as 10% of a customers’ data plan allowance, this move will allow customers to browse the mobile web and apps without interruption from unwanted advertising messages.Starting in Jamaica and rolling out to its other markets in the Caribbean and South Pacific in the coming months, Digicel will work with Israeli start-up, Shine Technologies, to be the first operator worldwide to deploy Shine’s mobile ad control technology at the network level. Shine’s technology blocks display and video ads inserted by ad networks in both mobile browsers and apps.For network operators meanwhile, for whom bandwidth is one of the most costly considerations, Digicel is looking to companies like Google, Yahoo and Facebook to enter into revenue sharing agreements with it so that this money in turn can be reinvested in network deployment and ultimately the bridging of the digital divide. Currently, these companies do not pay to make use of the network and the services they provide on it suck up bandwidth to make money for themselves through advertising while putting no money in.Broadband has proven to be transformative in both developed and developing countries alike promising to improve people’s lives and livelihoods and accelerate the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals. In line with this, network operators across the world are investing billions in deploying state-of-the-art networks. Latest figures from the ITU state that 43% of the global population now has some form of regular access to the internet, but there are still some 4.2 billion people who do not. And in the least developed countries, this number drops to a very low one in ten people who have access.Denis O’Brien, Chairman of Digicel Group, explains; “This is about giving customers the best experience and about getting access to broadband to the unconnected and allowing them to benefit from the opportunities it affords. Companies like Google, Yahoo and Facebook talk a great game and take a lot of credit when it comes to pushing the idea of broadband for all – but they put no money in. Instead they unashamedly trade off the efforts and investments of network operators like Digicel to make money for themselves. That’s unacceptable, and we as a network operator, are taking a stand against them to force them to put their hands in their pockets and play a real role in improving the opportunities for economic empowerment for the global population.”Ron Porat, CEO at Shine, explains; “Shine is dedicated to putting a stop to the abusive behavior of mobile advertising toward the network operator and the consumer. As the first operator worldwide to deploy our technology at the network level, Digicel is making a clear call for an improved customer experience. We believe it is now time for everyone in the digital advertising ecosystem to look to the future and start having a conversation about how better and sustainable digital advertising can be created to foster stronger, mutually beneficial relationships that are based on transparency and trust.” Recommended for you Thousands without power in TCIlast_img read more
