Education Ministry Targets 10% Improvement in Math

first_imgEducation Minister, Rev. the Hon. Ronald Thwaites, says he is targeting a 10 per cent improvement in Mathematics passes in the major examinations at the primary and secondary levels. These are the Grade Four Numeracy Test, Grade Six Achievement Test (GSAT) and the Caribbean Secondary Examination Certificate (CSEC). He said that as part of this initiative, the Ministry will be increasing the distribution of Mathematics specialists throughout the education system, particularly in schools where there are weaknesses. “I’m challenging the schools, the principals, the teachers…we want to give you the help to achieve (these results), and we are going to hold you accountable,” the Minister stated. He was addressing teachers and students from across the island, who turned out for Wednesday’s (March 6) first staging of the National Mathematics Expo held at the University of the West Indies, Mona. The Grade Four Numeracy Test results show that in 2009, some 45 per cent of the age cohort achieved the requisite level of mastery in numeracy; 38 per cent in 2010; 46 per cent in 2011; and the pass rate improved to 54 per cent in 2012. For GSAT, 53 per cent of students achieved mastery in 2009; 57 per cent in 2010; 62 per cent in 2011; and 63 per cent in 2012.last_img read more

Gov’t Honours Six Former Labour Ministers

first_img Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Andrew Holness, presented them with plaques during the Ministry of Labour and Social Security’s Awards Banquet in Celebration of the Centenary of the ILO and the Trade Union Act (1919), which was held at The Jamaica Pegasus hotel in New Kingston on Wednesday (May 22). She noted that the debt and gratitude that Jamaica owes to the trade union movement and the ILO are incalculable.“Jamaicans will, for generations to come, recognise that these two movements are vital instruments for economic change and development and that they continue to make sterling contributions to our advancement,” she said.Several trade unionists and employee advocates were also awarded. They are Senator Lambert Brown, Brenda Cuthbert, Helene Davis-Whyte, Raymond Eytle, George Fyffe, Senator Kavan Gayle, Vincent Morrison, Danny Roberts, Granville Valentine, Lloyd Goodleigh (posthumously) and Professor Neville Ying.Former Permanent Secretaries, Anthony Irons and Alvin McIntosh, were also recognised and Former Labour Administrators, Errol Miller, Karl Wedderburn and Gresford Smith (posthumously).The Trade Union Act was born out of the need to provide a legislative framework for industrial dispute resolution and statutory arbitration.The Act, which was the first of its kind in the English-speaking Caribbean, supports the principle of collective bargaining and provides legal recognition for the trade union movement. They are Former Prime Minister, the Most Hon. Portia Simpson Miller; Dean Peart; Horace Dalley; Pearnel Charles; Derrick Kellier and Dr. Fenton Ferguson. Portfolio Minister, Hon. Shahine Robinson, congratulated the recipients on behalf of the Government.“On this special occasion, we come to honour those who have given yeoman service to Jamaica through the ILO and our local organisations.“Their efforts are representative of true community spirit… .[They] have gone above and beyond the call of duty to ensure dignity, pride and economic, political and social stability for our workers and our nation – indeed, for making this world a better place than they found it,” Mrs. Robinson said.Prime Minister, the Most Hon.

Robin Hood flour recall expands to all of Canada

The Canadian Food Inspection Agency has expanded last month’s recall of Robin Hood brand All Purpose Flour due to a possible E. coli contamination. A recall issued on March 28 only involved consumers in British Columbia, Alberta, Saskatchewan and Manitoba, but now covers all of Canada.The affected flour is sold in 10 kg bags and has an expiry date of April 17, 2018. The recall was triggered during an investigation into a foodborne illness outbreak. The CFIA says there has been one reported illness. Food contaminated with E. coli may not look or smell spoiled but can still make you sick. Symptoms can include nausea, vomiting, mild to severe abdominal cramps and watery to bloody diarrhea. In severe cases of illness, some people may have seizures or strokes, need blood transfusions and kidney dialysis or live with permanent kidney damage.Consumers are being advised to throw out the recalled product or return it to the store where it was purchased. read more

Ohio State mens basketball ready for constant motion of Americans offense

Junior guard Shannon Scott (3) sets up in defensive position during a game against Morgan State Nov. 9 at the Schottenstein Center. OSU won, 89-50.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editorThe Ohio State men’s basketball team is coming off a defensive showing coach Thad Matta called one of the best performances by a team since he’s been at OSU.“I thought we were as tuned in, as dialed in as we could possibly be,” Matta said Tuesday, referring to the 52-35 win against then-No. 17 Marquette (2-1, 0-0) Saturday. “I thought guys used their length, their athleticism, they understood what we were trying to take away … It was probably about as good defensively as we could play.”The Buckeyes held the Golden Eagles to only 18.9 percent shooting in that game, and submitting a similar effort against American University (1-1, 0-0) Wednesday remains the focus. The American Eagles run an offense that has given the No. 8-ranked Buckeyes (3-0, 0-0) fits in the past.“We know they run the Princeton Offense. That’s going to be fun to guard like always,” said junior guard Shannon Scott Monday with a smile. “We just gotta treat them like any other team. Just because they’re not ranked doesn’t mean they can’t come in here and beat us.”The “Princeton Offense” is a style predicated on constant motion, quick cuts behind defenders and solid outside shooting. Matta said it takes extra time to prepare for the offense itself, and the Eagles shoot a high number of shots from beyond the 3-point arc.“It’s just the cutting is unique, you’ve got five guys out there that can shoot,” Matta said. “I think 47 percent of their field goal attempts are threes.”An in-conference foe, Northwestern, also runs the Princeton Offense, and the Wildcats have given the Buckeyes all they can handle in recent memory. Two seasons ago, OSU slipped by to beat Northwestern on the road, 75-73, as then-Buckeye forward Jared Sullinger scored the game-winning basket in the waning seconds. Last year, OSU needed late runs in both games against Northwestern to put them away.“It’s one of those deals where you may give up a lay up, you may give up a (3-pointer) here or there,” Matta said. “But it’s the possession after possession after possession of doing what you’re supposed to do and how you’re supposed to do it. And then in the end, you hope that you can rebound long shots, long rebounds. We gotta scoop those up. We’ve definitely learned our lesson over time playing Northwestern in that regard.”Staying disciplined on the defensive side of the ball is going to be key, as the Buckeyes look to win their fourth straight to open the season.“We have to be really sound on defense. We can’t gamble like we probably would,” Scott said. “I know for myself, I like to be in the passing lanes, I probably can’t do that too much cause they’re going to back-door it. Just playing honestly, defensively. Staying between the man and the basket is a huge key for us.”Tipoff between the Buckeyes and Eagles is set for 7:30 p.m. at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Fifty years later OSU NCAA Champions honored

The Ohio State men’s basketball team cruised to an 85-63 victory Sunday over Minnesota, but there was more to celebrate at the Schottenstein Center than the series of alley-oops the Buckeyes threw down in the blowout win.Only once has OSU captured the NCAA Tournament title, and that team was recognized Sunday on the 50th anniversary of the Buckeyes’ 1960 championship squad.The team gathered at center court during halftime, and Bob Knight, who coached at Army, Indiana and Texas Tech after his collegiate days, spoke to the crowd.Knight described how the OSU basketball program had “great architecture,” starting with a premier coaching staff.Coach Fred Taylor, who died in 2002, was honored with a banner that now hangs from the arena’s rafters. Among the players recognized were two-time National Player of the Year Jerry Lucas and two-time All-Big Ten selection John Havlicek.Knight reminisced about the talent that the 1960 squad sent out on the floor each night.“During a lull in a game that we were doing, [commentator] Brent Musberger said to me, ‘If you had to pick one guy to take the most important shot, who would it be?’” Knight said. “I said it would be Havlicek. I saw him do that his entire career.”At 16-6, the current Buckeyes’ prospects of repeating history don’t appear to be favorable. But Knight said he is impressed by what he’s seen from the team, especially junior guard Evan Turner.“I told Turner, ‘You have to promise me you won’t try and dunk the ball anymore,’” Knight said. “I said, ‘When you dunk it, just lay it up there and push it down through.’ He tried a little bit of a Broadway dunk and that could have really crippled this team because he’s a hell of a player.” read more

Vaccines can be blamed for illness without scientific proof EU court rules

first_img Image: Shutterstock/funnyangel 20,937 Views Image: Shutterstock/funnyangel Jun 22nd 2017, 10:57 AM Thursday 22 Jun 2017, 10:57 AM 114 Comments Share849 Tweet Email6 Short URL By Órla Ryan THE EUROPEAN COURT of Justice has ruled that courts may consider vaccines to be the cause of an illness, even in the absence of scientific evidence confirming a link.The decision stems from the case of a Frenchman, referred to as JM, who was vaccinated against hepatitis B “between the end of 1998 and the middle of 1999″ and developed multiple sclerosis in 2000.The finding states that the proximity between a person getting a vaccine and the occurrence of a disease, as well as the lack of personal and familial history of the illness and the existence of a significant number of reported cases of the disease occurring following such vaccines being administered “may, where applicable, constitute sufficient evidence to make out such proof”.In its ruling, the court said: “Where there is a lack of scientific consensus, the proof of the defect of the vaccine and of a causal link between the defect and the damage suffered may be made out by serious, specific and consistent evidence.”The ruling states that JW “was vaccinated against hepatitis B using a vaccine produced by Sanofi Pasteur”.In August 1999, he began to “present with various troubles, which led to a diagnosis of multiple sclerosis in November 2000″.  He died in 2011.In 2006, JW and his family had brought legal proceedings against Sanofi Pasteur to obtain compensation for the damage they claim he suffered due to the vaccine.The case was heard by the Court of Appeal in Paris, which observed there was “no scientific consensus supporting a causal relationship between the vaccination against hepatitis B and the occurrence of multiple sclerosis”.The court held that no such causal link had been demonstrated and dismissed the action. An appeal was brought to the French Court of Cassation.‘Excellent state of health’ The case referenced the fact that JW was previously in an “excellent state of health” and noted the lack of family history of the disease, and proximity of the vaccination being given to the diagnosis of MS.Yesterday’s decision allows for a court, “where there is not certain and irrefutable evidence, to conclude that there is a defect in a vaccine and a causal link between the defect and a disease on the basis of a set of evidence … which allows it to consider, with a sufficiently high degree of probability, that such a conclusion corresponds to the reality of the situation”.The document notes that the system still “places the burden on the victim to prove the various elements of his case which, taken together, will provide the court hearing the case with a basis for its conclusion as to the existence of a defect in the vaccine and a causal link between that defect and the damage suffered”.It states that “excluding any method of proof other than certain proof based on medical research, could make it excessively difficult [or] impossible to establish producer liability”.The decision adds that national courts must ensure the evidence is “sufficiently serious, specific and consistent to warrant” its conclusion.In a statement, a representative from Sanofi Pasteur told CCN: “It is not our role to comment on this legal decision.“However, Sanofi Pasteur wishes to reiterate that its vaccines are safe and effective and protect against infectious diseases. Our hepatitis B vaccines are safe and well tolerated. They have been approved by health authorities and are marketed for more than 30 years.”Read: ‘Women will die needlessly’: Call for push to increase uptake of HPV vaccineRead: Cholesterol-lowering vaccine could be available in six years Vaccines can be blamed for illness without scientific proof, EU court rules The decision stems from the case of a man who developed MS shortly after being vaccinated against hepatitis B.

La Réunion va marquer les requins de ses côtes

first_imgLa Réunion va marquer les requins de ses côtesAujourd’hui, débute à la Réunion une opération de marquage de requins à l’aide de balises acoustiques. Grâce à celles-ci, les scientifiques pourront étudier les requins afin de mieux connaître leurs mœurs et prévenir les attaques qui ont été nombreuses cette année.A l’heure où les attaques de requins semblent se multiplier à travers le monde, la préfecture de la Réunion a trouvé une solution pour étudier le phénomène : une opération de marquage de requins qui va débuter aujourd’hui. “On a besoin de comprendre ce qui se passe avec des méthodes scientifiques. L’objectif est de permettre de mieux gérer le risque requin et de prévenir des attaques qui ont atteint le niveau le plus élevé depuis 30 ans, qui plus est, dans des lieux où il n’y en avait pas”, a déclaré le sous-préfet de Saint-Paul, Thomas Campeaux.À lire aussiUn requin mako filmé en pleine attaque par une caméra embarquée (Vidéo)L’opération se fera sur quatre mois, avec deux sorties en mer chaque semaine. Dirigée par l’Institut de recherche sur le développement (IRD), elle consistera à placer des balises acoustiques dans le ventre des requins tigres et bouledogues. Ces balises transmettront des informations à trois stations d’écoute, installées sur des bouées situées dans une réserve marine. “Le faisceau d’informations récupéré permettra d’établir une échelle de risque, comme pour les avalanches”, a déclaré M. Campeaux.Cette première étape initie une grande étude scientifique baptisée Charc : Connaissance de l’habitat des requins côtiers de la Réunion (un jeu de mots avec l’anglais “shark” qui signifie “requin”). Financée par l’Etat et la Région, elle vise à établir une “corrélation entre la présence et le comportement des requins et les facteurs du milieu” dont les courants, la pollution, la turbidité de l’eau, a expliqué Marc Soria, scientifique de l’IRD et coordonnateur de l’opération.Au total, 80 marquages seront effectués et deux caméras sous-marines installées pour les besoins de l’étude qui se déroulera sur 30 mois et comportera plusieurs volets, précise Sciences et Avenir.Le 18 octobre 2011 à 18:51 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Lightning Strikes Can Look an Awful Lot Like Meteors

first_img Mini Satellite View of Hurricane Dorian Shows Intense Storm ActivityWild Horses of NC to Ride Out Hurricane With ‘Butts to the Wind’ At this point, it’s common knowledge that Earth has weathered some pretty big asteroid hits. We now believe that one wiped out a good chunk of the dinosaurs and led to one of the worst mass extinctions in history, for example. But now it seems that one bit of evidence we’ve historically used to find locations of asteroid impacts can be made by lightning, throwing a wrench into some findings.First, if you’re worried that you’re going to suddenly have to learn a new cause of death for the dinos, fear not. That one’s pretty well sorted. But when we look back through the geological record, we’re separated from the event by tens of thousands, if not millions of years. Science relies on evidence to make assertions. After that stretch of time, there’s precious little left that we can measure or observe, much less use to make conclusions. If the impact is big enough, a massive crater will be clue enough.Smaller impacts, though, were presumed to cause actual changes in the rock. When a meteor or asteroid hits, it slams really, really hard. Providing tens of thousands of times atmospheric pressure. This puts a lot of strain on the rock and creates a special type of crystal known as shock quartz.Lightning obviously doesn’t “hit” things in the same way that a space rock might, but it can superheat rock to thousands of degrees in millionths of a second. That puts very similar pressures on the rock’s structure — enough to create shock quartz, also known as fulgurite.In a peer-reviewed paper in Geophysical Research Letters, a team of geologists used advanced computer modeling to analyze whether or not lightning can cause these sorts of formations.“The rapid fusing and subsequent quenching of the surface of the rock leaves a distinctive, thin, garbled coating comprised of a glassy to fine-grained porous material,” the paper reads. “Our study on rock fulgurites… demonstrates that the presence of shock features cannot be taken as unequivocal evidence for impact events.”That’s all very sciencey, but, in essence, lightning is powerful. And, in general, it’s a good idea not to simply presume anything in science. That’s why it’s important not to jump to explanations like aliens for mundane things. Anyway, practice good critical thought, and you should be fine. Remember to second guess everything and all that, and try to make good decisions.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on targetlast_img read more

Heres how a 32 AirPods clone compares to the real thing

first_img See It $159 Mentioned Above Apple AirPods 2019 (Charging Case) Apple Can you spot the AirPods imposter? Rick Broida/CNET Take a look at this photo. Two pairs of Apple AirPods, right? Nope: One of them is a clone, a knockoff, an off-brand replica. If you’ve seen these before — and they’re everywhere nowadays — I’ll bet you wondered the same thing I did: How do they compare? Can $32 true-wireless earbuds possibly rival Apple’s $159 ones? As the Cheapskate, I desperately wanted to find out. I’ve tested loads of earbuds before, but they all had different designs; none of them were exact AirPods copycats. This time, I truly wanted to compare, well, apples to Apples.

Apple AirPods with Wireless Charging Case Tags See It See it at ZDNet Deals AirPods vs. AirSounds 2 Read more: The best true-wireless earbuds for 2019 When I first conducted this test a a few months ago, I opted for the AirSounds True Wireless Earbuds — a dead ringer for the real thing save for the tiny power/function button protruding from each ‘bud. Although I found the sound quality to be surprisingly decent overall, I had issues with the fit, outdoor performance (dropouts were a real problem) and lack of auto-pairing. My ultimate verdict: Not bad for the price, but why bother when there are so many other true-wireless earbuds that don’t look like AirPods but perform as well or better? But here comes the AirSounds 2 (normally $39.99, but $32 with promo code CNETSOUNDS20), with a host of compelling upgrades: Bluetooth 5.0, touch controls, auto-pairing and, surprisingly, a case that can charge wirelessly. This last puts them more in line with the Apple’s higher-end AirPods, which also have a wireless charging case and sell for $199. OK, but at less than one-sixth the price, the AirSounds 2 can’t possibly be any good, right? Do the new features solve the first version’s problems and add up to a more compelling alternative? Read on. Read more: The best cheap true-wireless earphones for 2019 AirSounds 2 vs. AirPods: Fit I’ve always found Apple’s EarPods — the wired headphones included in the box with iPhones — to be a comfortable fit, and the same goes for AirPods, even though the latter are just a hair larger. That’s not true for everyone, though; some folks find them too large or too small. It really just depends on the size of your ears. The AirSounds 2 case is all but identical to the AirPods case; I’d need a caliper to measure any size difference. However, while the original AirSounds earbuds were a hair larger than the AirPods, and therefore uncomfortable in my ears, the AirSounds 2 are a perfect fit. I wore them for 30 minutes and never noticed the slightest discomfort. Your mileage absolutely positively may vary, however. airsounds-2-vs-airpods-open-caseThe AirSounds 2 (left) have exterior LEDs that indicate charge status. Rick Broida/CNET AirSounds 2 vs. AirPods: Features As noted above, the AirSounds 2 really stepped up on the feature front. For starters, no more power buttons: You take the earbuds out of the case and presto, they pair with your phone. However, they don’t have the sensors that automatically detect when they go in and out of your ears, an AirPods feature I really like. You’ll have to pause/resume playback manually. Speaking of that, the AirSounds 2 does offer touch controls — but the instruction manual gets their functions wrong. It say you tap the left earbud once to play/pause music or answer a call, twice to skip to the next track and so on. However, turns out it’s two taps of either earbud to play/pause and three taps to skip. That’s not a huge deal, but if you don’t tap in just the right spot, any given function might not work, or not work correctly. Sometimes, for example, when I triple-tapped, the earbud only recognized two taps. If you’ve ever seen AirPods, you know that Apple’s charging case has one measly LED — under the case lid — to indicate charge status. The AirSounds 2 case has four green LEDs on the front, and the earbuds themselves glow red while charging. To my surprise, the AirSounds 2 case also has a Lightning port for charging, not Micro-USB like on the previous version and many other true-wireless earbud cases. But the real surprise here is that the case can juice up just by lying on a Qi charging pad. That feature costs $40 extra when you’re shopping for AirPods. I wasn’t able to test the AirSounds 2’s battery life, which is rated at up to four hours — with up to eight additional hours afforded by the charging case. That’s about on par with the original AirSounds, but AirPods still crush them with an estimated 24 hours of total listening time. AirSounds 2 vs. AirPods: Outdoor performance As noted above, the first-gen AirSounds couldn’t handle the outdoors: Audio would drop out as soon as I ventured into an open area. But the AirSounds 2? Zero dropouts, at least in my tests. I went around the block with my phone tucked away in my pocket, but audio came through perfectly clear. I’m not sure if this can be attributed to Bluetooth 5.0 or something else, because I’ve also been testing another AirPods clone — also with a wireless charging case — and it suffers the same audio-dropout issue, despite having Bluetooth 5.0. Whatever’s behind it, the AirSounds 2 have solved a major AirSounds 1 problem. AirSounds 2 vs. AirPods: Sound quality This is arguably the single most important aspect of any headphone, and it’s where I’d expect any cheapie product to fare the worst. But I thought the AirSounds were decent, and I can say the same of the AirSounds 2. Great? No. Good enough for walking the dog, listening to podcasts, doing housework and all that? Yeah, I think so. AirPods are better, no question, offering broader range and more bass. But $167 better? Oh my heavens, no. Of course, if it’s bass you want, you need to bypass this design altogether in favor of earbuds that create an inner-ear seal — something like the Anker Soundcore Liberty Air, already an attractive AirPods alternative at $80, and often on sale for even less. But I actually favor this design for aforementioned outdoor activities like walking and running, because I feel it’s safer to let some ambient noise (like from oncoming cars and scooters) in. AirSounds 2 vs. AirPods: Verdict rick-broida-wearing-airsoundsWhether it’s made by Apple or some no-name company, this still isn’t a good look. Rick Broida/CNET So, assuming you like the look of Apple’s AirPods (more on that in a second), should you save yourself $167 and buy the AirSounds 2 instead? That’s a much tougher question now, because the latter greatly improve on the original and have evolved into a product I can recommend. Of course, there are still plenty of other true-wireless earbuds that cost less than AirPods, some of them priced at $50 or less. What I continue to wonder is whether an AirPod clone makes sense at all. They’re still pretty dorky-looking, if you ask me, so unless it’s a status thing — like wearing a fake Rolex — I’d look at some of the other options. Indeed, you can enjoy good sound from something like the TaoTronics TWS TT-BH053, which runs $50 and mimics the AirPods’ and AirSounds’ “pipe” design — but comes in matte black, not glossy white, and are therefore a bit less conspicuous. Still, if you just want to make people think you’re wearing AirPods, but don’t want to pay $159 to $199 for the privilege, the AirSounds 2 are worth a look. They’re not perfect, but they’re surprisingly good for the price.

Khulnas cloud hovers over Rajshahi

first_imgRuling Bangladesh Awami League (AL) mayoral candidate Khairuzzaman Liton exchanges greetings with voters during a programme in Rajshahi recently. Photo: Prothom AloRuling Awami League is taking up the same strategy of Khulna by arresting BNP leaders and activists over various charges and intimidating them ahead of Rajshahi city polls, alleged BNP leaders.Leaders of Bangladesh Nationalist Party said, three different cases have been filed after the schedule of Rajshahi city polls was declared. And 178 BNP men were accused in those cases while 29 were arrested to date, according to party insiders. BNP mayoral candidate in Rajshahi Mosaddek Hossain Bulbul alleged that the ruling AL was trying to drive out BNP’s polling agents or make them leave the area before the election, like in Khulna and Gazipur.Mosaddek Hossain told Prothom Alo that he decided to provide the local media, the election commission and law enforcers with the names and identity of all his polling agents.“And environment for a fair election has not been created yet. It seems ruling AL is trying to replicate the Khulna-style election in Rajshahi,” the BNP mayoral aspirant said.However, AL rejects such apprehensions of BNP.AL candidate Khairuzzaman Liton said he had no knowledge about what happened during the Gazipur and Khulna mayoral election“We have not seen anything wrong in Khulna or Gazipur. However, there is no need to do anything in Rajshahi. I do not think that anything wrong will happen here,” Liton added.“BNP is probably facing a polling agent crisis due to its internal conflicts. Nobody perhaps agrees to be agents for BNP,” he further said. Prothom Alo came to know that the police have filed three new cases against BNP leaders and activists, charging them with carrying out explosions and cocktail blasts and planning sabotages.BNP leaders, however, said there were no cocktail attacks since the announcement of the schedule in the area. They claimed the cases to be false.“Important leaders and activists engaged in electioneering have been accused. Charges have also been filed against unidentified persons, so that anyone can be arrested and sent to jail in these cases,” said BNP leaders.The latest case was filed on Thursday in Rajpara police station.
