Mom at 74 Woman delivers twin girls in Andhra Pradesh

first_imgAmaravati (AP): Having longed for over five decades to become a mother, a 74-year-old woman finally realised her dream by giving birth to twins in Andhra Pradesh on Thursday.This, doctors feel, could be a new world record. The previous record was said to be held by a 66-year-old Spanish woman in 2006, according to the Guinness World Records. E Mangayamma of Draksharamam in East Godavari district of AP delivered twin baby girls through in-vitro fertilization (IVF) in a private hospital in Guntur.

Married to E Raja Rao in 1962, Mangayamma remained issueless all these years. When one of their neighbours recently conceived and delivered a baby through artificial insemination, at the age of 55 years, hopes sprouted in Mangayamma too and she wanted to try IVF. She approached Dr Aruna – who previously served as Health Minister in Chandrababu Naidu cabinet between 1999 and 2004 – in Guntur in November last year.

Given her age, the woman was kept in the hospital under the constant care of specialist doctors all these months. “She remained healthy as she did not have diabetes or blood pressure. Since she is 74-year-old, we had to perform Caesarean section to deliver the babies,” Dr Aruna said. The happiness of the new parents and their relatives knew no bounds as there were celebrations in the hospital.last_img read more

Struggling Saint John mourns lost pipeline A huge economic blow

first_imgSAINT JOHN, N.B. – At what would have been the eastern end of the Energy East Pipeline, rookie Mayor Don Darling is in mourning.The veteran businessman, elected mayor just last year, presides over a declining city in a declining province, and had been counting on Energy East to help turn the corner.“This is a disappointment. It’s an economic blow. I’m frustrated,” Darling said Thursday.The $15.7 billion pipeline project would have carried western crude to the Irving Oil refinery in Saint John and an export terminal for destinations abroad. TransCanada cancelled it Thursday, citing “changed circumstances.”While Quebec politicians like Montreal Mayor Denis Coderre and environmental activists celebrated the demise of the project, Darling lamented the loss of jobs and revenue.“This a huge economic blow to Saint John, to New Brunswick and to the country,” Darling said.The Energy East Saint John Partners Forum had estimated the project would increase the provincial GDP by $6.5 billion, and create thousands of jobs over several decades.Ian Whitcomb, president of the Saint John-based Irving Oil, called it the loss of a “once in a lifetime opportunity.”Darling said his once-affluent city — the oldest incorporated city in Canada — was looking to Energy East as a source of momentum to get the economy moving.He said in the short term, the city of 67,000 people is facing a $4.5 million shortfall this year and needs to make tough decisions if it is to avoid raising the city’s tax rate — already the highest in the region.The 2016 census showed the population of Saint John fell by 3.6 per cent over the previous five years — falling from 70,063 to 67,575 — and losing its status as the largest city in the province.A New Brunswick sociologist, Hassan Arif, likened the city to Detroit in a 2012 column for HuffPost, saying Saint John’s decline isn’t as severe but it faced similar challenges: They were both declining cities with growing suburbs, with concentrated urban poverty and a shrinking tax base. Both have multiple vacant and abandoned buildings.Even before the Energy East announcement, Darling was openly expressing his concerns about his city’s financial woes.In a Facebook post Wednesday, Darling said “I’m tired, beat up, frustrated and sad. I’m all those things because we need to change,” he wrote. “We are in a mess, this didn’t happen overnight, it’s been years in the making.”On Thursday, Darling said the Energy East project was “truly a test of our country and our ability to come together and we failed.”He blames the regulatory process and opponents of the project in Quebec.“The fact that one of the provinces in our country appeared to do everything it could to block this project in any fashion — I think that was obviously a factor,” he said.Darling said his city needs help from the province and Ottawa — either a large project or a number of smaller ones to stimulate the economy.“We need help. We need to work with the provincial government and Premier (Brian) Gallant is signalling that he is accepting my challenge that Saint John needs a new deal,” he said. “We have to match actions with the reality and urgency we’re facing as a community.”Gallant said Thursday energy is still a huge opportunity for Saint John, noting that the province is looking at various forms of renewable energy such as tidal power.“There will be a new deal for Saint John,” Gallant said. “As the industrial base of our economy, we need Saint John to be firing on all cylinders.”Darling said the city would take the next 30 days to more clearly define what help it needs from the other levels of government.“All we want is a fighting chance to put Saint John on a more sustainable path,” he said.last_img read more

Taxi drivers petition city for level playing field with ride sharing companies

first_imgAround 300 Calgary cab drivers have signed a letter to the city, asking for ride sharing companies to be subject to the same rules and regulations as taxis.The petition says more and more cab drivers are being forced to give up on mortgage payments and file for bankruptcy as they struggle to make ends meet.Taxi driver Syed Hussain said one example is vehicle inspections: taxis must go in every six months, but for Uber drivers, it’s once every year.“When we renew our taxi badge, we pay $175, the Uber guys they pay $15,” he said.Hussain said added costs mean taxi drivers often work 12 hours a day, seven days a week.“We have over 2,000 drivers and they are suffering unbelievably,” he said.“There are double standards. Two laws: one for the tax industry and one for the sharing companies like Uber or Lyft or whatever, and that is not fair.”Meanwhile Clement Gulston, who drives for both ride-sharing companies Uber and Cowboy Taxi, argues he pays just as much as a taxi driver, maybe even more, as 25 per cent of fares go to the company to cover costs.“Their (taxi) system is outdated. Checker has apps, do you know that? Associated has (an) app, do you know that? Calgary City Cab has app? Have you ever tried to use their app, have you ever talked to anybody who tried to use their app? If you use any one of these apps, you’re not connected instantly with the driver,” he said.Gulston says he works for two companies driving four cars, not because he needs the money, but because he’s taking advantage of good opportunities.

Home sales fall across Canada to reach their lowest level in 3

first_imgA flood of buyers and sellers looking to close deals late last year ahead of looming tighter mortgage rules resulted in a 14.5 per cent “payback” drop in home sales between December and January, market watchers said Thursday.Economists expected the drastic decline, which marked the lowest sales level in three years, and anticipate the market will continue to be dampened in the near future as Canadians negotiate the new rules and a January interest rates hike, the third in the past year.“It’s the biggest monthly percentage drop in sales activity since October 2008,” said Gregory Klump, the Canadian Real Estate Association’s chief economist, referencing when the country was in the midst of the so-called Great Recession.January activity was down in three-quarters of all local markets and virtually all major urban areas, especially in Ontario’s hot spot in the Greater Golden Horseshoe, according to data released by CREA Thursday. The decline was less significant on an annual basis, with sales falling 2.4 per cent.The monthly decline “is largely payback” for buyers rushing to sign deals in the last three months of the year, ahead of the new rules, said Robert Kavcic, senior economist at BMO Capital Markets, in a note.CREA’s figures showed sales climbed to a record monthly high in December — just before the federal banking regulator’s tougher rules for uninsured mortgages took effect. Starting Jan. 1, borrowers with a more than 20 per cent down payment must pass a stress test proving that they can service mortgage at a qualifying rate of the greater of the contractual mortgage rate plus two percentage point or the five-year benchmark rate published by the Bank of Canada.The January market also dampened due to the Bank of Canada’s decision to raise interest rates to 1.25 per cent, up from one per cent. The central bank’s interest rate increase impacts variable rate mortgage holders, but those who opt for fixed mortgages also saw a rise in the five-year fixed rate amid rising bond yields and a stronger economy.CREA noted that January home sales are on par with the 10-year monthly average and that a large decline in new listings of 21.6 per cent prevented the market balance from shifting in favour of homebuyers. The average price of a home rose by 2.3 per cent when compared with last year at just over $481,500.The national sales-to-new listings ratio was 63.6 per cent in January. A ratio reading above 60 per cent generally indicates a sellers’ market.The number of newly-listed homes was at the lowest level since spring 2009. About 85 per cent of all markets had fewer listings. The Greater Toronto Area led the decline, with large percentage drops also in British Columbia’s Lower Mainland, Vancouver Island and the Okanagan region, as well as parts of Ontario.Supply restraint may have played a big part in the month’s slowdown, Robert Hogue, senior economist with RBC Economics, wrote in a note. The drop in new listings hints at two psychological effects at play, he said. Many sellers rushed to list their properties in the months before Jan. 1 and, once the new rules came in, potential sellers may have feared a significant buyer pullback and waited to list.He expects more listings to surface once those fears subside.The market likely over-reacted to the new mortgage rules, Hogue wrote, and while homebuyer demand will remained dampened, it won’t be to the extent implied by January’s figures.Volatility is expected to continue in the near-term, wrote Michael Dolega, a senior economist with TD Economics, in a note.But, Dolega said “some stabilization” should occur by the middle of the year.“Thereafter we expect activity to remain weighed down by rising interest rates, but with markets largely in balanced territory prices should remain well supported,” he said.The government action successfully slowed housing markets, particularly in and around Toronto, said Sherry Cooper, chief economist at Dominion Lending Centres.“But it hasn’t really made housing affordable,” she said. “And there’s no way to make housing affordable until we see an increase in housing supply — and not just new listings, but actually new construction.”The pace of housing starts in January held steady compared with December at about 216,200, Canada Mortgage and Housing Corp. reported earlier this month. But the pace is expected to moderate this year.Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter.last_img read more

Successful switch Former tight end Reid Fragel settles in at right tackle

Reid Fragel was a tight end in his first three seasons with the Ohio State football team, so it should come as no surprise that his transition to right tackle in his senior season has been a challenge.Fragel said he finally felt comfortable, however, in the Buckeyes’ fourth game of the season, a 29-15 victory against the University of Alabama-Birmingham Saturday.“I think so far that’s the best I’ve played at tackle,” Fragel said.This week, however, Fragel prepares for what could be a much greater challenge, as the Buckeyes travel to East Lansing, Mich., to play the No. 20 Michigan State Spartans in their Big Ten opener at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday. Against the Spartans, Fragel will be lining up primarily against Spartans defensive end William Gholston, who was an All-Big Ten second-team selection in 2011.“He’s got length,” Fragel said of Gholston. “I think that’s his main weapon, he likes to use his hands a lot and uses his reach. He’s quick off the ball, he’s got size, too, so it’ll be a good challenge for us.”The MSU game will be a homecoming for Fragel as well. For the first time in his OSU career, Fragel will have the opportunity to play in East Lansing, Mich., which is located less than 100 miles from Fragel’s home town of Grosse Pointe Farms, Mich.“That’s a game I’ve been looking forward to for a while,” Fragel said. “Obviously that’s my home state, so (I’ve) got some friends and family up there that will be at the game.”Fragel caught 14 passes over the course of three years playing tight end, but he became a starter for the first time after converting to right tackle and winning a position battle over freshman Taylor Decker in fall camp.Coach Urban Meyer listed Fragel as one of the offensive players who graded out as “champions” for his performance against UAB, and gave him praise during Monday’s press conference.“(Fragel) played his best game as a Buckeye,” Meyer said. “Best game of the year, really best game of his career.”Two of Fragel’s fellow starters on the OSU offense echoed Meyer’s sentiments.“We’ve seen a lot of guys step up,” said senior fullback Zach Boren. “Reid Fragel played the best game I’ve ever seen him play since he’s been here this past year.”Redshirt junior Corey Linsley said he felt similarly.“It was an awesome showing for Reid,” Linsley said. “It was great because everybody knows on the team Reid has so much talent. He’s huge, and he’s got athleticism, more athleticism than anybody, and it was great to see him finally use all of his potential.”Linsley said it was clear before Saturday’s game even started that Fragel came into the game with more energy than usual.“Even before the game, I knew it was going to be his best game,” Linsley said.Fragel said he “tried to be a little bit more energetic” on Saturday.“I knew we had to come out a lot harder and play with a little more tempo,” Fragel said. “I kind of just tried to help out I guess, and provide some energy.”Linsley said Fragel’s performance stood out during the highlight film that Meyer showed the entire team on Sunday.“They showed that film yesterday of the offense cutting through the defense and it was basically just a Reid Fragel highlight show,” Linsley said. “He was smiling all day yesterday, and high-fiving everybody, it was great to see him finally do that.”Fragel said it was a “good feeling” to be acknowledged for his positive plays in the UAB game, but also recognized that he has to continue to improve for the team’s upcoming game against the Spartans.“I know there was some things that I watched aside from that film that I need to correct, get better and improve for Michigan State,” Fragel said. “Not to downplay UAB at all, but the athletes that Michigan State have, we’re going to need to execute a lot better.”Linsley said playing against Gholston will be a great opportunity for Fragel to shine.“I think that’s even a better opportunity to take what he learned from this game, and to just put it in action against a really good player,” Linsley said. read more

Mancini plans talks with Balotelli

first_imgNew Italy manager Roberto Mancini has announced that he plans to talk with Mario Balotelli over a potential comeback to the national teamThe Italian coach managed Balotelli at both Inter Milan and Manchester City, before Mancini sanctioned his move to AC Milan in 2013 due to the forward’s poor disciplinary record at the Premier League side.The last time Balotelli played for Italy was in the 2014 World Cup after his struggles with both Liverpool and Milan (in what was his second spell in 2015) meant he was left out by Antonio Conte and then later Gian Piero Ventura.However, the 27-year-old has rediscovered his best form at Nice in his two seasons in France and has scored 43 goals in his 65 appearances in all competitions for the Ligue 1 side since joining in August 2016 as a free agent.Mario BalotelliCorini tells Balotelli to “raise his game” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 According to the Brescia coach, Mario Balotelli “needs to raise his game if he wants to face Juventus” as his team is set to host Bologna.After Italy’s failure to qualify for the World Cup for the first time since 1958, there have been calls by the media to reinstate Balotelli to the national side and Mancini has now confirmed that he intends to speak with him.“Mario is an Italian player. We will definitely talk. He is one of those players we should take a new look at,” said the 53-year-old, according to Sky Sports.Mancini will take charge of his first game for Italy on May 28 against Saudi Arabia in an international friendly.last_img read more

JAMAICA Nurses Charged to Play Greater Role in Promoting Public Health

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Related Items: Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#Jamaica, March 1, 2018 – Kingston –  Minister of Health, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton, has charged the nation’s nurses to prepare to play a greater role in promoting and protecting public health.  He noted that nurses, given the regular and frequent contact they have with people, are in a unique position to promote healthy lifestyles and advise persons against habits that can endanger their health.“The nursing profession has to prepare itself… (for nurses) to be greater advocates for the cause of public health and wellness in our society,” he said.The Minister was addressing the launch of Nursing Now, a global campaign aimed at promoting the profession, held on Tuesday (February 27) at the Bustamante Hospital for Children in St. Andrew.  The initiative is geared at, among other things, raising the status of nurses globally, and maximising the contribution that nursing makes to universal health coverage and women’s empowerment and economic development.Its key partners are the World Health Organization (WHO), International Council of Nurses, the United Kingdom (UK)-based Burdett Trust for Nursing, and nursing organisations across the globe.Minister Tufton, in endorsing the campaign, said it is going to reinforce the value of the nursing profession to public health locally, in the region and internationally.  He noted that the impact of nurses is greatest at the level of primary healthcare; the preventative side of health, which is a major thrust of Governments globally.“It is a good time to highlight, to reinforce that importance, in order for us to take note and to do more to promote the interest, role and the contribution of a very crucial sector in the delivery of public healthcare,” he said.Dr. Tufton said the initiative will enable “greater empowerment of our nurses and provide them with the ability and the capacity to prepare themselves to provide greater leadership, as an important response to the public health challenges the country faces”.last_img read more

Mourinho reveals Man Uniteds struggle to sign players

first_imgMan United’s Jose Mourinho, gave a very detailed explanation about the struggle that his club goes through to sign the very best players.What Jose Mourinho explained this Friday during a Man United press conference ahead of the match at Southampton is worth analyzing, his club has struggled quite a bit to sign the very best players from other clubs recently.We recently found out about the negative response he got from Internazionale Milano’s midfielder, Ivan Perisic.But the Croatian is only one of many great examples that the Red Devils could talk about for hours, we can also bring up the case of Gareth Bale, the Real Madrid Welshman who rejected the Red Devils very publicly knowing that Jose Mourinho kept asking for his transfer to the club.The Portuguese manager knows that in order to win the titles that the clubs from Spain are currently owning, he has to buy the very best players who are available on the market.The problem is that getting some of the best talents that money can buy, has become increasingly difficult even if the clubs that could sell them don’t really have that much power to win titles.Mourinho just gave a very detailed explanation with examples that we need to analyze further here, he used Tottenham Hotspur as a perfect way to illustrate it because the Spurs are one of the clubs that have some of the biggest talents in English football but all of them are a forbidden fruit right now.The #MUFC Official App is the best place to follow Jose’s press conference — head there from 10:30 GMT!— Manchester United (@ManUtd) November 30, 2018When asked about United’s struggle to sign top players, Mourinho said: “It depends,” he said via Goal.“I will give you an example, that I hope is a good example. I hope you can interpret it in the right way.”“Is Manchester United by history, by its dimensions, bigger than Tottenham? With all the respect – Tottenham is an amazing club – I think everybody would say yes.”“Can we go to Tottenham and buy their best players? No – because they don’t sell or because they are so powerful that they can say no.”“A few years ago, who was Tottenham’s best player? Michael Carrick. A few years later, who was the best player? Berbatov.”“Can we go now there and bring Harry Kane, Dele Alli, [Christian] Eriksen, [Heung-min] Son? Can we go there and bring the guys here? No.”harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“So, who is more powerful now. Them or us? Football changes. It is more difficult to buy players of a high, high, high level.”“The clubs are more powerful and don’t want to sell. Before, the smaller clubs, they were almost begging the big clubs, ‘get my best player, I need to sell. Please, you are powerful, buy my best player’.”“At this moment, they don’t want to sell. It is more difficult to make the team better and stronger with buying.”“Unless you do what some clubs do, and for some reason, they can do and others cannot. Which is, I need a right back and a left back. Send away the ones you have and buy four at the same time.”“It is difficult, so we do what we can. Last season was fantastic to finish second and we are fighting hard. I know we have to do better than we are doing.”“But one thing is to do better and another thing is to try and compare ourselves with what Manchester United was in the past. Not just because Manchester United was fantastic, but because there was a big difference to the others and, at the moment, it is not like that,” he concluded.✊ We are United.— Manchester United (@ManUtd) November 30, 2018It’s still unclear if the Red Devils will go after any players during this winter transfer window, but they should at least consider it due to the current climate within the squad.It’s safe to say that Manchester United is too far from being the best club in English football, Jose Mourinho grew increasingly frustrated with his several failed attempts to buy the players he wanted for his new project and had to resign himself with the idea of getting his second or third option on the lists that he provided to Ed Woodward.Even if the Red Devils are the wealthiest club in the world, they still refuse to pay too much money for any player and they will likely remain with the same philosophy after the experience that brought them signing Paul Pogba a couple of years ago.Thanks to Tottenham, Jose Mourinho’s biggest excuse is now irrelevant #mufc https://t.co/RDpEYDCICE— Man United News (@ManUtdMEN) November 27, 2018Which top player would you like to see playing for Manchester United?

Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Email,(RNS) — A popular Christian bookseller is changing its name after a deluge of requests for cannabis-related products.For years, Peabody, Massachusetts-based Christian Book Distributors has been known by the initials CBD.The bookseller announced last month it will now go by “Christianbook” to avoid confusion with cannabidiol, an increasingly popular cannabis-derived product that shares its initials.“The problem is the other CBD is just so popular at this point in time that it just kind of overwhelms our brand,” Christianbook President and CEO Ray Hendrickson told The New York Times.The “other CBD” does not get users high. But it has exploded in popularity over the past year, appearing in everything from oils and lotions to beers and lollipops and claiming to relieve anxiety and pain, among other things.Cannabis has taken over the CBD name. Image by Mohamed Hassan/Creative CommonsDrugstores Walgreens and CVS have said they will carry CBD products in some states. Even some Christians are exploring its use: A website called God’s Greenery publishes posts about CBD, how Christians can view it morally and what Scripture might have to say about it.Meantime, Christianbook has sold books and other Christian resources for four decades.What started as two teenage brothers selling Christian books from a catalog out of their parents’ house eventually grew to the world’s largest seller of Christian products, according to a statement from the bookseller.The company also sells books on its website, CBD.com.“In the past, a Google search for ‘CBD’ would place our company at the top of the results page,” the company said in a statement.Former Christian Book Distributors branding.

As this wave of popularity over the ‘other CBD’ is not likely to subside, we will stop referring to ourselves as ‘CBD’ and will also drop the word ‘Distributors’ from our company name. Going forward, we will operate under the name of ‘Christianbook.’”Though the name has changed, Hendrickson said in the statement that nothing else about Christianbook’s business has.Customers still can buy the same Christian products they always have from its catalogs and website. And they still can use the domain name CBD.com.“It’s not for sale,” Hendrickson told The Boston Globe.  TagsCBD Christian Book Distributors Christianbook homepage featured,You may also like Emily McFarlan Miller emmillerwrites By: Emily McFarlan Miller emmillerwrites Facebook Twitter Pinterest LinkedIn ReddIt Emaillast_img read more
