Robben gives up hope of a return against Dortmund

first_imgBerlin: Bayern Munich’s veteran Dutch winger Arjen Robben has admitted he is unlikely to make a fairy-tale return from injury in the Bundesliga club’s top-of-the-table clash against Borussia Dortmund next week. Robben, 35, has been out of action for several months and is set to leave Bayern after a decade of service at the end of this season. An iconic figure at the club, he had hoped to return to fitness in time for the Dortmund game, but now appears to have given up on the idea.

All I can do is keep working hard and fighting to get back on the pitch.” Robben’s last appearance for Bayern was in a 5-1 Champions League win over Benfica on November 27.

He was expected to return to full fitness after Bayern’s winter training camp in Doha in January, but nearly three months on, he is still out of action. In his 10 years at the club, Robben has become a Bayern legend, scoring 143 goals in 305 appearances and winning 11 domestic titles. His finest moment came at Wembley in 2013, when he fired Bayern to victory in the Champions League final with an 89th minute winner against Dortmund. Even if he is denied a final meeting with old foes Dortmund next week, Robben says he is determined to make another competitive appearance for Bayern before the end of the season. “These are my last two months at a club where I have spent 10 years. I want to play again, to pull on the shirt one more time,” he said. “That is the most important thing for me. I don’t care which game it is.”last_img read more

Thousands uprooted by fresh fighting in eastern DR Congo – UN

The latest outbreak of fighting in the troubled South Kivu province in the far east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), pitting Government forces against Rwandan rebels, has forced 35,000 people from their homes, the United Nations refugee agency reported today.The displaced are sheltering in the Ruzizi River plain, near the DRC’s borders with Rwanda and Burundi, after fleeing the latest military campaign, called Kimia II, which started on 12 July and seeks to disarm the notorious ethnic Hutu militia known as the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) and their local allies.This latest uprooting brings the total number of civilians displaced in South Kivu since the start of the year to some 536,000 people, according to Ron Redmond, spokesperson for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).More than 1.8 million people are now internally displaced in the DRC’s volatile east, he added.The South Kivu towns of Lemera and Mulenge are said to be nearly empty, with almost 20,000 people believed to be hiding in the forests in the area.Most of the IDPs are living with host families, with others seeking refuge in schools, churches and other buildings, but those in conflict areas remain almost completely inaccessible, UNHCR said.“There are widespread reports from IDPs of atrocities including accusations of murder, rape and torture, on the part of FDLR rebels,” Mr. Redmond said, adding that those fleeing violence have reported arbitrary arrests, kidnappings, extortion and forced taxation by the FDLR and others.Lack of access and insecurity has hampered assessments of the full scope of the latest displacement, he noted.So far, UNHCR has tentatively pre-registered 20,000 people along the Luberizi-Kamanyola axis, along the DRC’s border with Burundi, and preliminary evaluations show that food, water, medical supplies and basic items such as blankets are needed.“We are also monitoring the situation of those must vulnerable, identifying people at risk and with specific needs, including victims of sexual violence and arbitrary detention,” the agency’s spokesperson said.UNHCR, he said, is also gravely concerned that the renewed violence in South Kivu could have negative repercussions on the agency’s repatriation scheme for Congolese refugees returning from neighbouring Tanzania.Yesterday, the UN peacekeeping mission in the DRC, known in MONUC, deplored an FDLR attack in the country’s far east that has left at least 16 civilians dead.Three members of the Congolese army (FARDC) and five FDLR rebels were also killed during the fighting, which began late on Monday night and lasted around seven hours.The attack took place in the village of Hombo, which straddles the border between North Kivu and South Kivu provinces and is located about 120 kilometres west of the city of Bukavu. Both provinces have been wracked by violence in recent years.“We condemn all attacks such as these,” Madnodje Mounoubai, a MONUC spokesperson, told the UN News Centre. “This is part of a pattern by the rebels where they try to terrorize the civilian population.”Mr. Mounoubai, who said the FARDC captured nine FDLR members in the fighting, also warned that the death toll may rise further. 24 July 2009The latest outbreak of fighting in the troubled South Kivu province in the far east of the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), pitting Government forces against Rwandan rebels, has forced 35,000 people from their homes, the United Nations refugee agency reported today. read more

Jayasuriya accused of running Joseph Camp torture chamber

Sri Lanka’s former army commander, currently Ambassador to Brazil, has been accused of allegedly operating an army camp at the end of the country’s civil war where extremely brutal torture was routine.General Jagath Jayasuriya was the commander of the Wanni Security Force Headquarters in Vavuniya, more commonly know as “Joseph Camp”, from August 2007 till mid July 2009, the International Truth and Justice Project (ITPJ) claimed. “This clearly shows Sri Lanka cannot be trusted to vet their own peacekeepers if they think a man with this career history is the kind of person to send abroad,” said Ms Sooka.The South Africa based human rights group is now calling for a thorough investigation of Joseph Camp by the UN Special Rapporteur on Torture and the Committee Against Torture as well as the immediate recall of General Jayasuriya from his post in Brazil pending investigation. The retired General is also accredited to Argentina, Columbia, Chile, Peru and Suriname. Another army General who ran Joseph Camp from 2009-2011, Kamal Gunaratne, was also sent as deputy Ambassador to Brazil before retiring. (Colombo Gazette) “There is no way General Jagath Jayasuriya can claim not to have known that torture routinely occurred in his camp; there were purpose built underground torture chambers equipped with manacles, chains and pulleys for hoisting victims upside down,” said ITJP Executive Director, Yasmin Sooka, “If the detainees could hear each other screaming at night from adjacent buildings, so could he.” The ITJP’s new report, replete with sketches of cells and interrogation rooms drawn by survivors, is based on the sworn testimony of 46 people which is also corroborated by 92 other cases of torture in this site which have been reported by other groups. The ITJP says it has documented 6 torture cases that occurred under the Sirisena Government in Sri Lanka – the most recent in December 2016. Witnesses provided ITJP with searing testimony of torture in Joseph Camp that included rape with objects such as cricket wickets and glass bottles, as well as in two cases barbed wire inserted inside a pipe and then withdrawn to tear the flesh of the rectum. All of the women and 18 of the men described being raped and sexually violated; one Tamil man was left distraught after soldiers tried to force him to rape a female cadre detained with him. One of several Tamil informers interviewed who were forced to work with military intelligence said soldiers boasted to him of raping at least 15 Tamil women each. Most victims in this illegal detention site were kept naked in dirty dark cells often underground.In the report the South Africa based rights group says it has scores of names and photographs of alleged perpetrators of torture and rape from Joseph Camp, several of whom have been positively identified by their victims. One alleged rapist is said to have been a Major in military intelligence; another senior officer ran abduction teams operating out of Joseph Camp at the end of the war but was sent abroad as a UN peacekeeper in 2015 despite the vetting procedures. read more

Above and Beyond Meet the lifesaving Luas driver who went back on

first_img“I DIDN’T HAVE to think about it, the training just came back”34-year-old Luas driver Philip Redmond took a number of lifesaving courses as a teenager, and even taught classes for a while.Until this summer, however, the Clondalkin man had never had to call on those skills in a real-world situation.Everything he’d learned “came back instantly”, however, when he was called upon to rescue a distressed woman from the Grand Canal during the summer.Philip was just about to drive off from the stop at Goldenbridge, beside the canal bank in Drimnagh, when a woman ran up to his cab window and shouted through the hatch.“She said there was a woman on the edge of the canal who was going to jump, and was serious about it,” he told TheJournal.ie.Philip got out of the tram to find out what was happening, but as he approached, saw the woman enter the water.Goldenbridge Luas Stop [Google Streetview]“I ran back and grabbed a five foot points-bar that we use for changing over the tracks,” Philip said.He rushed down to the sloped embankment close to where she was, but the woman didn’t want to grab the pole.“She wouldn’t take it. We were all calling for her to take it.A crowd gathered, and a group of men came down to help Philip as he reached for the flailing woman.“They held my arm and we made a chain up the bank because there was nowhere to grab onto.“I was able to reach out further and there was a huge crowd of people shouting at her to take it.After “about five minutes,” she did.“We took her up the embankment to where it was easier to get out. The guards and fire brigade were just arriving at the time.‘Shaking’The woman was taken to hospital, and Philip says he was told later that she had been checked out and was ‘physically fine’.“Another lad had been stripped off and ready to jump in the water, but I was worried he could have been dragged down”.Philip changed trams with a driver heading the opposite direction and then ended his shift early once he got back to base.“I was fine afterwards. It was only later I noticed that my hands were shaking. It didn’t catch up with me till later on”AwardsPhilip says he was thrilled to discover this week that he would be one of the 37 people from around the country to receive a Seiko ’Just in Time’ lifesaving award from Irish Water Safety.He’ll be in good company at next Tuesday’s Dublin Castle awards ceremony; the Luas driver’s fellow recipients include a Donegal surf instructor who saved a woman and her two sons, and a Kerry fisherman who rescued four children from a sandbank amid rapidly rising waters.“I’d gotten an award already from the Lord Mayor but I thought  maybe I didn’t really deserve it enough. I’ve actually done water safety though so this is different.Philip said he’d seen an ad for lifesaving classes recently as he was passing Clondalkin Sports and Leisure Centre and thought “I’ll have to sign my kids up once they’re old enough”.“You’ll have to wait a while for that though?” TheJournal.ie suggests.“Yeah probably”.Philip’s daughter Georgia is eleven months old. His wife, Deborah, is expecting their second in March.Related: “The water rushes in awful fast — the kids wouldn’t have been able to stand”Also: Warm summer saw RNLI lifeboats launched 571 timeslast_img read more

Column For women giving birth in a war zone I was more

first_imgSyria was plunged into a violent conflict on 15 March 2011. The death toll of the ongoing conflict is unknown, but the United Nations has estimated that more than 60,000 people have died in the past two years of fighting. Cathy Janssens is a midwife who has recently returned from an assignment with Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) in the country. I WENT TO Syria to set up a mother-and-child health programme in one of the MSF hospitals in Syria. At that time there was no other female medic in the hospital. So I found myself confronted with considerable responsibilities and a huge workload.When I arrived, the maternal health activities for pregnant women were just starting and the material was still in transit. At first all I had was a room with a hospital bed. Nothing else. I rushed off a request to supply a delivery table, but for those first weeks I had to make do with what was there.Of course, the women did not wait for the delivery table to arrive; and you cannot turn away a pregnant woman who arrives at the hospital door. With a normal delivery it doesn’t matter too much if you don’t have all the right equipment. But when there are complications, you really need some of the specialised medical kit.IV fluid bags used as hot-water-bottlesSo for the first weeks I made do with what I had to hand. It’s surprising how adaptable you can be. My chief problem was the lack of specialised equipment for premature babies. It was freezing cold in the hospital. Skin-to-skin contact – where the baby is snuggled against the mother’s chest – is considered a good way to warm up a baby whose temperature is falling too much. But this technique is not used in Syria and the mothers were rather reticent, so I had difficulties keeping the newborn babies warm. But then we had an idea – heating IV fluid bags in a microwave oven to make small hot-water-bottles.We quickly realised that we were also going to have to treat a lot of women who were not pregnant. The news spread like wildfire that a female doctor had arrived, and before long women were pouring into the hospital. Since the start of the conflict women have had increasing difficulties getting any sort of medical care, and in this area our hospital was really the only option. For many of these women I was more than just a midwife; I was someone who would listen. When women came for a consultation and departed knowing they didn’t have any health problems, I think they left somehow reassured, despite the conflict.Ensuring privacyWhen the midwifery equipment arrived, we moved the consultation room to the other end of the hospital. At first we had been working just across from the Accident & Emergency department. This meant there was not much privacy for the women, particularly given that there were a lot of men arriving in A&E. I could sense that the women were uncomfortable. But as soon as we moved, the privacy issue disappeared. The consultation environment for the women was much better, and by the same stroke we created a bit more space in the A&E area.When we started up the women-only ward, all the shyness vanished and suddenly our contact with the patients improved drastically. We would see women who came into the hospital in full burka but then, settled down in the consultation room, they would peel off the layers and start to open up. This is actually one of the reasons why I would like to go back on another assignment in Syria; the contact with the patients is wonderful.They would hug me – and thank me over and overThat said the work was very tough. Women often give birth at night and so after a full day shift, usually a full night-shift would follow. I would spend most of the daytime doing consultations, frequently being called away to assist a delivery. There were two Syrian assistants to help me, but they had no medical training, let alone specific obstetric skills. I had to teach them so much from scratch, and I couldn’t leave them to do consultations or deliveries alone. So I had to be present at each and every consultation, and rushing back and forth each time there was an alert that a woman was going into labour.So, a heavy workload, and extremely tiring. But you find the energy from somewhere. The women were incredibly grateful. They would hold me in their arms, hug me, and thank me over and over.Child victimsI did, however, get a real pang every time a child was brought into A&E. There were children, just two or three years old, dying in terrible pain, or with wounds that will handicap them for the rest of their lives. These are innocent little children – and that’s so hard to accept. Particularly with the conflict just getting worse.But I would relish the opportunity to return to Syria. This is a beautiful project doing some great work and run by a fantastic team of people. We are even expanding the activities from this hospital, and the Syrians we treat are infinitely grateful.MSF Ireland is running an Emergency Appeal for Syria.

NIF facility fires record laser shot into target chamber

first_img More information: The National Ignition Facility (NIF): lasers.llnl.gov/An official announcement is below:The National Ignition Facility (NIF), the world’s most energetic laser, surpassed a critical milestone in its efforts to meet one of modern science’s greatest challenges: achieving fusion ignition and energy gain in a laboratory setting. NIF’s 192 lasers fired in perfect unison, delivering a record 1.875 million joules (MJ) of ultraviolet laser light to the facility’s target chamber center.This historic laser shot involved a shaped pulse of energy 23 billionths of a second long that generated 411 trillion watts (TW) of peak power (1,000 times more than the United States uses at any instant in time).The record-breaking shot was made March 15.”This event marks a key milestone in the National Ignition Campaign’s drive toward fusion ignition,” said NIF Director Edward Moses. “While there have been many demonstrations of similar equivalent energy performance on individual beams or quads during the completion of the NIF project, this is the first time the full complement of 192 beams has operated at this sound barrier.”The ultraviolet energy produced by NIF (after conversion from the original infrared laser pulse to the final ultraviolet light) was 2.03 MJ before passing through diagnostic instruments and other optics on the way to the target chamber. As a result, NIF, located at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory, is now the world’s first 2 MJ ultraviolet laser, generating nearly 100 times more energy than any other laser in operation.Satisfying the NIF objective coincides with the third anniversary of the startup of NIF operations in March 2009, when 1 MJ operation was first achieved. Since then, NIF has increased its operational energy about 1 kilojoule each day for three years, a remarkable achievement. Today, NIF is fully operational around the clock, completing important steps toward the goal of ignition and providing experimental access to national and international user communities. The 1.875 MJ shot exceeds NIF’s original design specification and sets the stage for full-power experiments over the coming months. Not only did the shot achieve the highest recorded energy threshold, it also was one of the most precise ever fired at NIF: The energy produced was within 1.3 percent of its goal. Such precision is vital because the energy distribution among the beams determines how symmetrical an implosion is obtained in capsules containing fusion fuel. Implosion symmetry is a critical factor in achieving the pressures and temperatures required for ignition. Moses said that NIF will pursue operations at even higher power and higher energy levels to achieve ignition. “Our facility’s ability to demonstrate this level of precision performance as part of routine operations is a testament to the efforts of multiple teams supporting laser operations, target chamber operations, transport and handling and optics refurbishment,” Moses said.”For the past 15 years, since NIF groundbreaking in 1997, the scientific community has regarded the 1.8 MJ milestone as a tremendous technical challenge,” said NIF Operations Manager Bruno Van Wonterghem. “In 2003, we demonstrated this performance level on a single beam line, and in 2008 we repeated the demonstration on a single quad of four beams. To achieve this performance level with this kind of precision, quality and reliability on all 192 beams is unprecedented and very exciting.”Van Wonterghem points in particular to the enormous progress NIF scientists and engineers have made in economically maintaining the facility’s optics system while operating at unprecedented energy levels. Technicians adjust the target positioner inside the NIF Target Chamber. Citation: NIF facility fires record laser shot into target chamber (2012, March 21) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2012-03-nif-facility-laser-shot-chamber.html (PhysOrg.com) — The National Ignition Facility (NIF) at Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in California has set a new record for a laser shot. This past week, its combined 192 lasers fired a single 1.875-megajoule shot into an empty test chamber. After passing through the last of its focusing lens, the shot reached 2.03 megajoules, making it the first 2 megajoule ultraviolet laser. Explore further Laser Bay 2, one of NIF’s two laser bays Because the facility is funded by the US nuclear weapons complex, there has been debate about whether it would ever be used to prove or disprove the idea that lasers could be used to create nuclear fusion to produce electric power. Having the laser break records doesn’t really resolve that argument in the short term, but it might in the long run if it does eventually show that electricity could be created economically using such a process. © 2011 PhysOrg.com Researchers at NIF moving closer to fusion ignition point Prior to this achievement, the most the facility had managed to coax out of the laser, the world’s largest, was 1.6 megajoules. Also, the new record shows that the NIF laser is capable of producing more than it was designed for, which was 1.8 megajoules. It also proved that it was capable of doing so without damaging its parts, allowing for another shot a day and a half later, which is important, because one of the goals for the laser is to get it to fire off shots at 15 per second eventually. That’s what researchers think will be needed to produce power economically from the laser system.The ultimate goal of the NIF is to figure out a way to use a laser to produce nuclear fusion in a way that gets more energy out than is put in. Currently, that goal is still a ways off. Thus far, engineers at the project haven’t even reached the break-even or ignition point, though they expect that to occur sometime this year. Tweaking the laser to produce more than it was designed for is a step in that direction. The NIF facility was designed to produce a fusion reaction by imploding hydrogen isotope pellets using the huge laser. To that end, the team has made steady progress. When the project first began eighteen months ago, it had just one percent of conditions in place that are believed necessary to achieve the ignition point. They have improved that mark to ten percent and it’s because the pace has picked up dramatically in recent months that they believe they will achieve the ignition point sometime over the next six months, which is when the original ignition campaign was slated to end.

Airfare hotel and ground transportation costs on the way up CWT

first_img Posted by << Previous PostNext Post >> Travelweek Group TORONTO — Travel prices are expected to rise in 2019, with hotel rates increasing by 3.7% and airfares going up 2.6%, according to CWT’s latest Global Travel Forecast.The annual study, in conjunction with GBTA, shows rising prices will be driven by a growing global economy and rising oil prices.Here’s a look at the highlights:2019 Hotel ProjectionsThe hotel outlook for 2019 is driven by the overall increase in air travel, which will fuel demand for rooms.Technology will also play an important part. Hotels are introducing new developments to personalize the guest experience.

The US aviation market is expected to see capacity compression due to expanded fare fragmentation, with premium economy and basic economy reducing available seats, as carriers target margin improvement.” Airfare, hotel and ground transportation costs on the way up: CWTcenter_img Wednesday, July 25, 2018 Tags: CWT, GBTA, Statistics Sharelast_img read more
