PAHO helps Latin American nations prepare to fight Ebola

first_imgUruguay is requiring that all passengers arriving in the country must complete a questionnaire about their health status, the Uruguayan Ministry of Health told El Observador on October 9. If a case of Ebola is detected in a Latin American or Caribbean country, PAHO/WHO medical experts and representatives from the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network (GOARN) will be deployed to that nation, to assist national health authorities in carrying out their response plans. Creating an Ebola emergency fund, to pay for the high costs of treating patients infected with the virus. With the exception of a handful of cases in Europe and the United States, almost all Ebola patients have been stricken in Libera, Sierra Leone, and Guinea. In addition to participating in such meetings, PAHO/WHO is working closely with the health ministries of its member countries to ensure they have the necessary policies, procedures and human resource capacity in place to treat and contain Ebola. In Guatemala the government has installed thermal cameras at La Aurora International Airport, in the capital of the country, to detect the body temperature of passengers. A team of agents will work with the equipment 24 hours a day; if they identify someone with a fever, they’ll check the person’s passport to see whether the person had been in Africa, and then send them for a clinical exam. Depending on the case, the traveler may be quarantined, according to Guatemala’s Ministry of Health. For example, with technical support from PAHO, Honduran health officials have set up an International Health Surveillance Office (OSVI) at the Toncontín International Airport in Tegucigalpa.

Etienne, director of the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), told representatives of several South American nations at a conference in Havana October 20. “The region has to be properly prepared.” The Ebola epidemic has infected approximately 10,000 people and killed almost 5,000, almost all of them in West Africa, according to the World Health Organization. Symptoms include a high fever, headaches, muscle pain, vomiting, diarrhea, and general weakness – and may appear as late as 21 days after exposure. Those exposed to the virus are only infectious while they are suffering symptoms of the disease. Ebola is transmitted between humans via direct contact with bodily fluids and secretions. It can also be transmitted by contact with infected human corpses or infected animals, in addition to contaminated clothes, needles and other objects.

14 simple productivity resolutions for 2015

first_img ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr Make 2015 your most productive year yet by doing more of the one thing that matters: focusing.Maximizing productivity is a goal often discussed but rarely reached. As a result, though entrepreneurs actively strive to make the most of their time–reading books, exploring productivity hacks, testing project management tools–too often they feel they’ve fallen short. Meanwhile, the to-do list gets longer.But a new year is a great time to start fresh. We asked a panel of successful startup founders from YEC what simple, low- or no-cost resolutions they were going to make for 2015 to keep themselves on track and free of distractions. Their best answers are below.1. Plan out each day.I once heard the quote “Those who fail to plan, plan to fail” and it really resonated with me. I find my productivity soars if, each night, I take 10 minutes to write a list of five accomplishments I aim to make the following day. In 2015, I resolve to do this every working day. —Justin Bailie, FR8nex.com2. Keep meetings to 15 minutes, max.This is something I’ve sent out companywide: Meetings shouldn’t be longer than 15 minutes. We tried standing last year for the whole meeting, and that worked well, but being even more productive during meetings couldn’t hurt! continue reading »last_img read more

Ministry asks KPK to supervise national economic recovery program

first_imgRead also: Government issues regulation on economic recovery program, focuses on SOEs, MSMEs“The minister explained the progress of each scheme, including the ones related to working capital assistance and state capital participation,” KPK spokesperson Ipi Maryati said in a statement on Wednesday.Erick asked the KPK to supervise every step of the program. He also asked for the antigraft body’s insight into formulating regulations and the program’s design and mechanism.Furthermore, Erick urged the KPK to evaluate the program immediately once it has started. The State-Owned Enterprises (SOE) Ministry is urging the Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) to closely monitor the national economic recovery program, especially the distribution of funds for cooperatives as well as micro, small and medium enterprises (MSMEs).During a meeting on Wednesday, SOE Minister Erick Thohir updated the antigraft body’s commissioners on the program’s design and mechanism, which was still being formulated by the government.According to the latest draft, the government will carry out efforts to support the recovery of the virus-battered economy through capital injections and cash stimuli for certain banks, among other measures. The program will also regulate government investments, state guarantees and spending. Of the total Rp 318 trillion (US$21 billion) earmarked for the program, the government allocated almost half of it – Rp 152 trillion – for SOEs to use as working capital and accelerated compensation payments.Meanwhile, the government will support MSMEs with Rp 6 trillion worth of new loan guarantees, Rp 28 trillion in tax incentives and Rp 34 trillion in loan interest subsidies. Another, Rp 34 trillion has been allocated for corporate tax incentives.Read also: State banks to disburse $6.32b in loans to help businesses recover from COVID-19 hitThe antigraft body welcomed Erick’s request. “The KPK sees the minister’s request as an effort to strengthen coordination with relevant ministries in preventing corruption.”The meeting between Erick and the KPK took place days after the minister suggested that corrupt practices were still rampant in SOEs. Erick previously claimed he had identified at least 53 graft cases involving officials holding dual roles in SOEs as well as other institutions.Responding to Erick’s claim, KPK commissioner Nawawi Pomolango urged the minister to report them to the antigraft body to be investigated.Topics :last_img read more

CEO of Snapchat discusses new media

first_imgSnapchat CEO Evan Spiegel spoke about the history and future of Snapchat and the nature of entrepreneurship at the event, “Fireside Chat with Evan Spiegel,” on Wednesday evening in Taper Hall.The event was planned by Ashish Soni, executive director of digital innovation at the Viterbi School of Engineering and founding director of the Viterbi Student Institute for Innovation.Snapchat, an app that allows users to share photos and videos with select recipients for durations between one and 10 seconds, is possibly looking forward to opportunities in the mobile system through music, according to Spiegel.“Music is really appealing to us right now because it has some of the same attributes that communication had when we were working on Snapchat in the beginning,” Spiegel said. “Right now on your mobile phone, music is largely non-differentiated, so you usually search for a song and you can play it. It plays from four of five different places, they roughly cost the same, but it’s also high frequency. After communication, [music is] the highest frequency behavior on your phone and so that in our view, makes it a really interesting opportunity and it’s something that we are thinking about.”Snapchat’s newest addition, Discover, allows users to view short articles and videos from various media outlets, such as CNN, Yahoo! and Vice.“The first [problem with feed based media is that] the fastest story wins and that means a lot of times, you make mistakes because you’re in such a hurry to get things on the internet,” Spiegel said. “We also found that headlines were driving distribution to different websites in the feed to try and attract people to click on them.”Spiegel said the new Snapchat feature alleviates the issue of branding issues that Twitter has created. The purpose of creating Discover was to drive viewers away from simply scrolling through their Twitter without recognizing what information they were looking at.“We also saw that brands were kind of losing their value because on Twitter, the brand wasn’t really so important and people weren’t paying attention to where they were reading their news,” Spiegel said. “So we tried to build something that tried to bring back the editorial perspective, because we believe it’s really valuable to have someone who’s smarter than us figure out what’s important, because that’s a full time job and a really hard one.”Spiegel explained that part of Snapchat’s current success comes from users not wanting to manage online profiles.“Social media in its first kind of incarnation was really about identity,” Spiegel said. “It’s about building the virtual Evan. ‘Here’s the things Evan likes, here’s all his friends, here’s pictures of Evan,’ and that just gets really boring at some points.”Spiegel further commented on the issue of building an online profile. He explained that online sites that require individual profiles are inaccurate depictions of people, as we continuously change.“Part of what makes it so tedious is that people change — they grow actually really, really quickly — so you end up with this kind of huge accumulation of things that don’t really reflect who you are at all,” Spiegel said. “Worrying about that and managing this huge identity of you on the Internet just wasn’t really fun and it was also much more fun to talk with pictures.”According to Spiegel, the app is simple because it is solely based on snaps. Spiegel described snaps as small windows into another user’s perspective.“[Snapchat] is really focused on feeling and that means that we care a lot about the essence of conversation,” Spiegel said. “I think what it really enabled people to do is focus on ‘what is this person trying to say to me with this picture,’ not ‘what are they trying to save’ and so by shifting the attention to ‘what is … someone trying to communicate to me,’ we focus on the feeling and not the appearance of image.”Spiegel also discussed the nature of entrepreneurship and explained that building a strong team of workers is one of the most important parts in creating a great startup. He commented that effective startups have leaders who are able to say no to outsiders and to stay focused.He stressed the importance of being fully aware of legality when agreeing to build a startup.“If you hear the words ‘standard terms’ then figure out actually what the terms are, because they are probably not standard and the person explaining [them] to you probably doesn’t know how they work,” Spiegel said.Soni said that one of the most important things Spiegel emphasized was the importance of team choice.“Building a company is a long, hard journey and you need good people by your side to go with the ups and the downs and the fact that the team matters is huge,” Soni said.last_img read more

Premier League: Mourinho says Mata and Essien can leave Chelsea if they wish

first_imgManager Jose Mourinho has told Juan Mata and Michael Essien that his door is open if they want to leave Chelsea.Mata reacted furiously to being substituted in Chelsea’s 3-0 win over Southampton on New Year’s Day.The Chelsea forward did not shake Mourinho’s hand after being withdrawn in the 53rd minute and he flung his arms up in the direction of the touchline, where the Blues boss was standing.The 25-year-old, who has started just nine Barclays Premier League games this season, had to be calmed down by Michael Essien, who was sat on the bench at the time.Mourinho claims Mata reacted that way because he was unhappy at the scoreline – which stood at 0-0 when the former Valencia man was substituted.Mourinho does not want to lose Mata in the transfer window, and he says he would be happy to talk to the player if he is unhappy. “I want to keep him. I don’t want him to go. That is my opinion, my wish, but my door is open,” the Chelsea manager said.”The club’s door is open too so when a player wants to speak to us we are there waiting for them.”If you are asking do you want the club to sell him? I don’t want to.”Essien’s future at Chelsea was thrown into doubt when his agent suggested that he could leave the London club due to a lack of playing time.Mourinho, again, stressed he wanted to keep the player, but admitted that he could not offer the play guaranteed first-team football. “I offer nobody – not Michael, not nobody (guaranteed playing time),” the Portuguese said.”I understand that players think about national team, the World Cup and playing regularly, but my players have to think of the team before the players. Michael knows that perfectly.”last_img read more

GVL Improves Talented Liberians in Respective Areas of Discipline

first_imgGolden Veroleum Liberia (GVL) is one of the few multinational companies currently operating in Liberia in the agriculture sector. It has acquired thousands of acres in south-eastern, Liberia specifically Sinoe and Grand Kru counties, planting oil palm and employing many Liberians in that part of the country.Besides the employment opportunities, the Indonesian company and its partners have  provided Liberians with  sustained  training.  Late last year, nine Liberians sponsored by GVL in Indonesia to study in various fields, returned to Liberia after a year of intensive studies.Among them was Theophilus A.T. Kambo, Jr., who specialized in Electrical Engineering.Mr. Kambo, who is a Liberian working as a cadet with Golden Veroleum has benefited from the cadet program, which is an inspirational one that will improve talented Liberians in their respective areas of discipline.The GVL cadet program has developed more ideas relating to his (Kambo) Electrical Engineering profession, which gives him the confidence that he can now contribute to the development of Liberia through his profession.The program has also given him more zeal and inspiration to seek excellence in his profession.The benefit of GVL training to him is also important to the development of his beloved country, adding that as an engineer, he is inspired to contribute his skills to rebuilding the country.The training has increased Mr. Kambo’s technical capacity and puts him in a position to learn more in the profession of electrical engineering.  It has also exposed him to the world of palm oil mill construction, project management and project supervision which has added value to his skills.Mr. Kambo applied for the GVL program in Electrical Engineer and opportunity of career advancement in September, 2012. Having met the recruitment criteria (GVL’s policies covering recruitment), he received a communication to sit an aptitude test along with other Liberian Electrical Engineers on March 12, 2013. Based on his performance in the aptitude test, the GVL cadet was selected during the vetting process by Golden Veroleum Liberia.He considers his success as an  added value because the training program also added another value to his previous credentials.The GVL training program has increased the number of skilled Liberian youths to seven  persons.When asked what significant tasks he was able to achieve, Kambo said, “I learned new things almost every day. The most significant to date, he said, was learning supervision of electrical installations in the construction of palm oil mill.”The Indonesia trained electrical engineer had many difficulties, including the language barrier and the difference in food which he was able to cope with during his study in that country.He also learned the principle of operating diesel generators, steam turbo alternators and other machines, overhead power lines and underground cable transmission, electrical power transmission media (electrical cables), among others.Partnering with that Indonesia based-company (GVL) has brought to reality what he always dreamed of – to have an opportunity to further his studies. The young man used to wish to earn a Master’s degree in electric power systems and today his dream has finally been realized.Mr. Kambo, who is an experienced classroom teacher and good in interpersonal relationships, is willing to share his new skills with other GVL  staff through tutorials, open discussions and mentoring.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
