Tweetcenter_img Share Share Red ribbon, symbol of a commitment to the fight against HIV/AIDS. Clipping path included.BRIDGETOWN, Barbados (CMC) – Barbados says the annual rate of HIV infection cases is on the decline.Health Minister John Boyce, who did not give figures, says this is due to the expanded use of anti-retroviral therapy in the HIV treatment programme as well as steps now being taken to decentralize HIV services and offer diagnostic and treatment services outside of the HIV programme.Addressing a Caribbean Regional Health Policy Project workshop earlier this week, welcomed the outcomes of the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) funded Health Policy Project which he said provided a country-specific road map for a coordinated response to the challenge of stigma and discrimination in health care facilities in the Caribbean..The workshop was held under the theme “Stigma Reduction – Moving from Understanding to Outcomes”.“While medical and technological innovations such an anti-retroviral treatment can help to prolong life for persons living with HIV, there are aspects of the response which cannot be addressed in this way. Our attitudes are personal, they influence our behaviour and interactions with each other, either consciously or unconsciously,” Boyce said.He told delegates that it was therefore necessary to have in place programmes for constant training and retraining to help health care workers to understand their own belief systems and attitudes that might influence their response to clients.In addition, the Health Minister stated that appropriate policies and legislation needed to be enacted to force change where necessary.Boyce acknowledged that both financial and technical assistance would be necessary to take the process forward, as well as greater engagement with partners in civil society.He pledged the Barbados government’s commitment to take action on the findings of the Health Policy Project and to ensure the implementation of the necessary training, as well as the development of the recommended tools.“It is my hope that the Government of the United States will continue to see this as a valuable project and will agree to provide ongoing technical and financial assistance to sustain these activities so that we can look forward to the elimination of marginalization of persons who need to access services within our health sector,” he added.last_img read more

Fostering South Africa’s young scientists

first_imgThrough the Yesa programme, pupils withan aptitude for science and engineeringare nurtured, with a view to adding to theskills supply in scientific disciplines. The mobile laboratory, sponsored bythe CSIR and the Department ofScience and Technology.Pupils from Paterson High School inPort Elizabeth, standing outside themobile laboratory.(Images: Yesa)MEDIA CONTACTS • Dr Ron BeyersMD, Yesa+27 83 310 8843RELATED ARTICLES• SA scientist lauded for polar work• Sci-Bono CEO gets French knighthood• Educated Africans teach SA children• SA scientists win AU awards• New lab tools to help school soarFiona McRaeAn innovative new programme has been launched in South Africa with the aim of enticing pupils into careers in the scarce-skills fields of science, technology, engineering, mathematics and innovation – the STEMI subjects.The FabKids programme is the brainchild of Dr Ron Beyers.After teaching a range of subjects including maths, science, biology, computer science and technology education at high-school level for almost 30 years, Beyers is all too aware of the dismally low number of learners who pass these subjects in matric, and the even lower number of university graduates in these fields.He is passionate about the need for a far stronger focus on the STEMI subjects from as early as primary school level.“Education in South Africa largely ignores the importance of innovation,” he says.Five years ago Beyers was approached by the Council for Scientific and Industrial Research‘s (CSIR) Meraka Institute to set up a STEMI pipeline specifically in science and engineering.The time spent at the institute, along with almost a decade of research into early interventions, earned him a PhD from North-West University, with the title Promoting Human Capital Development through ICT’s Creativity and Innovation.The formation of the Young Engineers and Scientists of Africa (Yesa) organisation also arose out of Beyers’ work.Rapid prototyping key to realisation of ideasThe FabKids programme has emerged as a Yesa key initiative.The programme makes use of FabLabs (fabrication laboratories) which serve as an exciting, hands-on introduction for pupils to a fascinating new world of innovation through the concept of rapid prototyping.The FabLab concept was introduced to South Africa in 2005 by the Advanced Manufacturing Technology Strategy Implementation Unit, an instrument of the Department of Science and Technology, in conjunction with the CSIR, where the manufacturing technology unit was hosted.A FabLab is a small-scale version of a mass production factory which can be used by individuals to create prototypes ranging from arts and crafts to engineering and architecture models.According to Beyers, the environment created in the FabLab is that of peer-to-peer learning that enables anyone – with or without a technical background – to learn, experiment and, as far as possible, make their imaginings tangible.This means that pupils can walk into the high-tech FabLab with an idea and walk out with the first prototype in a matter of a few hours.“Rapid prototyping sees the inventor given tools to turn an idea into reality in a very short space of time – no more sketches on the back of a cigarette box,” he says.Although fabrication laboratories themselves are not new in South Africa, Beyers’ FabKids programme is aimed at tapping into and developing potential at a very early stage.His approach is two-pronged: to create opportunities for youngsters to be exposed to cutting-edge technology in a rapid-prototyping environment, thereby promoting creativity and innovation; and then to identify and track individuals who show particular talent.To achieve this, as well as maximum exposure of his programme to pupils, Beyers opted to address them on a comfortable level, by using the popular locally-developed social media service of MXit “to make it more affordable to reach kids even on the back seat of a taxi, 24/7”.While the initial version of this outreach was sponsored by the South African-Finland Knowledge Partnership on ICT, more recently Beyers, working with mobile social networking company Every1Mobile, developed a virtual passport for users in the Yesa community to earn so-called stamps to track their progress as they conduct virtual experiments online, answer questions and deliver content.“It is vital we track and foster talented individuals who have been identified,” he says of the online tracking system.And it would seem that word of the programme is indeed well and truly out among pupils in South Africa and further afield in Africa. Within two months of the My Yesa Passport being launched in May, more than 50 000 visitors had been to the MXit site and 5 000 users registered for their virtual passports.Expanding into AfricaThe programme has penetrated into 15 different African countries, with one of the largest user bases, after Johannesburg, located in Harare, in neighbouring Zimbabwe, says Beyers.He is now lobbying for major organisations “with an interest in developing solutions in Africa” to come on board so as to allow for the development of services and the expansion of the online community.“Sustainability is vital to the success of this intervention,” he says.While a new generation of FabKids is nurtured in five permanent FabLabs in the country – in Bloemfontein, Kimberley, Potchefstroom, Shoshanguwe and Mokopane – a mobile FabLab is used to take the concept into communities that do not have access to the permanent units.The 10m² mobile laboratory, which is pulled by a four-ton truck for which Beyers himself obtained a heavy-duty driver’s licence, is based in Port Elizabeth until September and is sponsored by the CSIR and the national Department of Science and Technology.“South Africans are very creative but they also need to have access to the technology to turn their ideas into innovative solutions and potentially take them to the market place,” says Beyers. “The mobile lab can play a very significant role in literally taking technology to the users in communities. It is being used in a hands-on approach to promoting innovation and creativity at school level.”The programme will also help to bring about social change and innovation, as it encourages communities at grassroots level to find creative solutions to their everyday problems of life in Africa, he says.Again he emphasises the need for sustainability. “We need to stop wonderful ideas being lost because of a lack of facilities to take them further.”last_img read more

CheapTweet Wades Through the Sea of Tweet Deals

first_imgTags:#advertising#marketing#NYT#twitter#web mike melanson Facebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… Related Posts The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videoscenter_img Whether a website sells off your email address or forces you to install some pop-up plagued toolbar just to get 10% off your next online purchase, searching for online coupons can involve treading in dangerous waters. Enter CheapTweet, which uses both algorithms and crowdsourcing to verify its content, and suddenly looking for the best deals online isn’t quite so scary.The self-described “Twitter-based social deals search engine site” does precisely that – it finds tweets about deals and coupons through a custom search algorithm and then allows its users to upvote or downvote the deals on its site.Tweeting deals, if your wondering, can be big business. In 2009, Dell made more than $6.5 million through Twitter deals and CheapTweet probably sent a few of those customers their direction. The ad aggregator is actually celebrating its 5 millionth indexed deal with a roll-out of a refurbished website, which includes upgrades to its search engine, the voting mechanism, a redesign and and new feature, the “DealStream”. CheapTweet allows its users to search for deals by category and keyword and will customize the stream of tweets according to their votes and Twitter conversations. They can also up and down vote tweets, like they’ve become accustomed to on sites like Reddit, Digg or Google Moderator. The “DealStream”, which contains a user’s customized results, can also be read as an RSS feed.As CEO Hayes Davis points out in a press release, CheapTweet is poised to help distinguish the good from the bad as more and more companies prepare to monetize through Twitter. “Online channels will only become more cluttered, as social networks start to monetize with ads,” said Davis. “CheapTweet’s service makes it easier for shoppers to sort through the clutter online and shop more effectively.”We’ve not only heard a number of rumors and anonymous tips on what the Twitter ad platform will look like, but other companies like 140 Proof have begun to enter the market, bringing tweet-like ads to third party clients. This doesn’t even account for the vast number of small businesses taking advantage of the service to pass out Web-only deals and coupons. With all of these ads, CheapTweet will help weed out the bad apples. Its users down vote nefarious tweets, the algorithm cuts out spam using a form of natural language processing and the multiple tweets about the same deal are combined to cut down on the noise. We think that a service like CheapTweet has found a perfect niche and its the ideal service to recommend to your less technically-savvy relatives, as well as those just looking for a deal. Like we said, searching for online deals can put you in some dangerous waters and this service helps clear out some of the flotsam and jetsam.

Mike Gundy’s Conservative Coaching May Have Lost Oklahoma State the Big 12 Title

first_imgWith 13 minutes left in the Bedlam-Big 12 title game, Oklahoma State was down 31-20 on the road in the Sooners’ house. After the Cowboys gave up a play that seemed like it would close the door on OSU’s Big 12 title hopes, Samaje Perine fumbled the ball at the Oklahoma State 18-yard line.A glimmer of hope?The Cowboys got their turnover. The team that leads the Big 12 in turnover margin rarely loses a game when they’ve won that battle. Unfortunately, the Cowboys didn’t pay it off. They dispossessed Perine. But Oklahoma State needed to get down the field and score.They again leaned on the run game with Justice Hill making one of the few second-half positive yard plays to start. Then, after a horribly marked (yellow line) first down marker was missed by Blake Jarwin just by inches, the Cowboys faced fourth down and very short at the Oklahoma 40-yard line.What is Mike Gundy going to do? Punt … right?Nope. Let’s call a timeout right after the officials ate up enough time to decide I was able to grab popcorn. Then decide to just to send your punt team back to the bench and let Chris Carson run for 16 yards… There you go, Coach.Unfortunately, the Cowboys found themselves at third-down-and-ten at the Sooner 29-yard line after a predictable draw play saw Justice Hill register a no-gain.So what do you do?Hand it off to Chris Carson for an impressive run that almost made the first down.Throughout this game (and in many past in-state Big 12 contests) Mike Gundy has been accused of coaching conservatively. This one may take the cake.Facing a fourth and short, Gundy held the dice in his hand. Instead of going for a first down, he elected to roll Ben Grogan out. It hooked wide left.I’ll say that the fourth-and-two field-goal attempt does less to cement Gundy as a “little brother” coach than the previous play call on third down that was obviously designed to get three points instead of seven.Now, Mason Rudolph had one of the worst games of his career and I can’t really blame the weather. When a quarterback of his caliber finishes with a 44 percent completion rate, 186 yards and no touchdown passes, you need to look behind center.Rudolph’s struggle on the road is a real thing.The field was wet. The ball was wet. But you can merely glance at Baker Mayfield’s stat line and you’ll dismiss that from your excuse list.Back to Gundy. He coached scared. There’s really no other way to look at it. But I think it was more of a collective effort on his part than just that one play/drive.If Grogan makes that kick, it’s a one-possession game with almost ten minutes remaining. But my problem isn’t with the miss. It’s with what the decision to go for a field goal represents. A field goal? A smart play, given the numbers, that could bring it to one possession. Going for it? That shows some gumption that you’re all in.Back-pedaling into the first half, another prime example of this. The Cowboys got a 49-yard kickoff return from Barry J. Sanders out to the 50. With 18 seconds left, even my daughter was drooling at the thought of a potential score before the half. Instead, they ran the clock out. With time and timeouts in hand.The Cowboys left a lot out on Owen Field, which is disappointing. But for all the swagger and moxie the mullet gives Mike Gundy, he had the opportunity at just his second conference title and put a cap on it.

Mike Gundy Blames Chuba’s Limited Workload on … a Fumble?

Because of our subscribers, we’ve been able to improve our work and provide the best OSU news and community anywhere online. Help us keep that up. The Cowboys offense got off to a slow start on Saturday against McNeese and it was ugly early.On the third offensive snap of the game — and his second carry — Chuba Hubbard basically ran into center Johnny Wilson. The collision dislodged the ball.Well …. oops. pic.twitter.com/szLTcvsKoZ— Pistols Firing (@pistolsguys) September 7, 2019Fortunately, Spencer Sanders had the presence of mind to dive on the ball and the possession was saved.So do you just chalk that up to a rough start on offense and move along? Not according to Mike Gundy.On Monday, when he was asked about OSU’s run-to-pass ratio early, Gundy blamed Chuba’s light workload on the fumble and not the fact that he’s Chuba and he doesn’t need to play more than one quarter against an FCS team anyway.“Two things,” said Gundy. “The offensive line was average and Chuba put the ball on the ground and when you put the ball on the ground, you’re out. So he’s not going to get his carries if he fumbles and the offensive line was average.”That sentiment is sound. Ball security is one of the most important assets a running back can possess, but it seems a little disingenuous when you look at the fact that Chuba stayed in the game for more than an entire quarter after that fumble and that he carried the ball six more times. He had eight rushes for 44 yards total.Shortly after that bugaboo, veteran wide receiver Dillon Stoner also fumbled but this time the ball ended up in the hands of the defense. It was his first target where he made the catch and the first down before being stripped at the sideline. Stoner would also stay in the game into the second quarter and was target three more times.I get it that Gundy wants to make a point about putting the ball on the turf, but I have a hard time believing that if this happens on Chuba’s second carry in Austin, that anyone else would be the featured back the rest of the way.This was Chuba’s first fumble on the season. He dropped four balls as a freshman last year, losing two of them.last_img read more

Chris Carson Spins, Truck-Sticks and Stiff-Arms Over Cardinals in Bounceback

Last week, Carson lost his third fumble in as many weeks, only this one was scooped up and scored. What followed were questions about his viability as a starting back going forward, especially after he was basically benched for perennial backup C.J.

To add even more Bedlam flair, Seahawks starting corner Tre Flowers added five total tackles as he and the Seahawks defense held Murray to 241 yards, zero TDs and an interception.Check out Carson’s full-game highlights below.center_img And if all else fails, he can always just truck-stick a defender.last_img read more
