Campaign aims to put more Indigenous nurses in hospitals

first_imgAPTN National NewsA campaign to support Indigenous nurses kicked off this week at the Wabano Centre.The One Million in One Year campaign was launched by the Canadian Nurses Foundation with a goal to double the number of scholarships for Indigenous nurses, and increase capacity of Indigenous nurse researchers.It’s a way to meet one of the recommendations of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission, in terms of improving the health and education of the Indigenous community, said CNF Chair Rachel Bard.In 2009, the organization started a fund for Indigenous nursing students, and to date more than 100 Indigenous nurses have received support from this initiative.Danielle Bourque, 22, is a nursing student from Beaver lake Cree Nation in Alberta, and is a recipient of a scholarship from CNF.“I’m in my fourth year and I just have to do my practicum, which I want to do it in a rural community, so the award from CNF will help me be able to do that because we don’t get paid to go do this,” said Bourque.Hunter Tootoo, Minister of Fisheries, Oceans and the Canadian Coast Guard, attended the launch.“All nurses play an important role in the healthcare system, but when nurses working in First Nations, Inuit, or Metis communities are Indigenous themselves, that makes a big, big difference,” said Tootoo.According to Tootoo, who’s from Nunavut, there’s nothing more soothing then to know you’re being understood in you culture and possible in your language.“It helps break down barriers, breaking down barriers is key, key to improving First Nation, Inuit, and Metis well-being,” said Tootoo.According to Lisa Bourque Bearskin, president of the Canadian Indigenous Nurses Association, there are currently 9,000 Indigenous nurses across the country.That’s one reason she supports the initiative as “rampant issues of discrimination” has led to severe gaps in health care.“I think building and creating opportunities  to do nursing training is vital to decreasing that gap,” said Bearskin.last_img read more

Poland Spring to use 100 recycled plastic for bottles

PORTLAND, Maine — Poland Spring announced Monday a plan to use 100% recycled plastic for all its noncarbonated water containers, a move that comes against a backdrop of growing concern about plastic pollution.The Maine-based company said the effort kicks off this month with 1-litre bottles. A niche product called Poland Spring Origin also uses 100% recycled plastic bottles. By 2022, the company plans to use 100% recycled plastic for bottles in all of its still water lines.The migration to recycled containers comes as the bottled water industry faces continued criticism over its use of plastic, much of which ends up as trash or litter. In Maine, Poland Spring also has faced scrutiny over water withdrawals as the brand has surged in popularity.“We’re putting our money where our mouth is,” said David Tulauskas, chief sustainability officer for Poland Spring’s corporate parent, Connecticut-based Nestlé Waters North America.Bottled water surpassed carbonated beverages as the nation’s top beverage segment several years ago. The segment grew another 5 per cent last year, according to the Beverage Marketing Corporation in New York.Soda and water bottles made from polyethylene terephthalate, or PET, have been transformed into lesser-grade recycled plastics. But better sorting and improved technology allow the plastic to be reused for food-grade containers, though it’s more expensive than virgin plastic, Tulauskas said.Recycling plastic is a worldwide effort. For example, the European Union has set a goal of plastic bottles having at least 25% recycled content by 2025 and 30% by 2030. In the United States, the move to recycled plastic containers is being led by industry.Poland Spring’s efforts are aimed at helping Nestlé Waters North America to reach its goals of 25 per cent recycled plastic by 2021 and 50 per cent recycled plastic by 2025.That plastic can be recycled over and over into bottles, reducing the amount of plastic sent to landfills and providing “proof that a fully circular economy is within our reach,” said Fernando Mercé, president and CEO of Nestlé Waters North America.Poland Spring ranks as the nation’s second-largest bottled water company, the Beverage Marketing Corporation said.David Sharp, The Associated Press read more

Ban dresses down to cool the UN

1 August 2008In lieu of his usual business suit, United Nations Secretary-General donned a more casual outfit as part of the “Cool UN” initiative, seeking to curb the world body’s greenhouse gas emissions, which kicked off today. The three-pronged scheme seeks to limit the use of air conditioning, slash emissions and save money for the UN. “We are not just cutting back suits and ties,” Mr. Ban told reporters, adding that the month-long “Cool UN” programme at the Secretariat in New York will make a 10 per cent saving in energy consumption. Use of steam will be cut by more than 4 billion pounds, the equivalent of 300 tons of carbon dioxide in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. The UN estimates that the scheme will also result in financial savings of more than $100,000. If the initiative is extended beyond August and into the winter, savings will be even greater, the Secretary-General noted. Calling on the support of the UN family and Member States, he said that “ultimately, this will be important for our common efforts in addressing climate change issues.” The main UN premises in Bangkok, which houses over a dozen of the Organization’s entities, joined the Secretariat today in rolling out the “Cool UN” scheme. Like the Secretariat in New York which is raising the thermostats by five degrees from 72 to 77 degrees Fahrenheit in most parts of the landmark building, ESCAP turned up the temperature by 2 degrees Celsius. Most of its staff members also came to work today in lighter clothing, including national dress. “Cool UN” is just one of several schemes ESCAP is involved in to slash energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions. Since 2002, it has cut back electricity consumption by 16 per cent yearly by replacing old and inefficient appliances such as power transformers, elevators, air conditioners, lights and pumps. ESCAP’s service also has pilot solar panels and wind turbines, and water usage has been reduced by 30 per cent every year through new higher-efficiency water closets and using recycled water for the main gardens. read more

UN officials call for political will to put world on path to

2 June 2011United Nations officials today appealed for greater political will in both developed and developing countries to make the transition to the “green economy” for sustainable development to protect humanity from environmental disaster and economic ruin which might result from current dependence on non-renewable energy. “Will we be able to evolve towards a green economy and sustainable development? Will we be able to stop destroying ourselves?,” asked Joseph Deiss, the President of the UN General Assembly in his remarks to the Assembly’s debate on the green economy.“There is resistance to be overcome. Mobilizing the attention of the public and the political decision-makers on environmental issues is difficult. The short span of an election cycle allows only the costs of the investments necessary to change the model to be seen. It does not see the longer-term benefits. We should henceforth think differently about this,” said Mr. Deiss.Deputy Secretary-General Asha-Rose Migiro stressed that the “business as usual” method of running economies was no longer sustainable, noting that there will be “upfront costs that can seem like an insurmountable burden, even though – over the course of time – they will reap lasting benefits.”“Developed countries possess advanced technologies and institutional capacity, but need to demonstrate political impetus critical to make transformative change. Developing countries face an array of challenges. But they also stand to benefit enormously by leapfrogging over heavily polluting 19th-century technologies to pursue a 21st-century clean energy pathway,” said Ms. Migiro.Mr. Deiss stressed that while there is currently no internationally recognized definition of “green economy,” the term implied “decoupling economic growth from the use of fossil fuels and non-renewable energy sources.”“Current activities must be made ‘greener’ and it will be necessary to develop clean technologies and green goods and services,” he said.Outlining the measures that could encourage both producers and consumers to adopt environmentally-friendly behaviour, Mr. Deiss mentioned a broad range of approaches, including subsidies, environmental taxes and paying for pollution rights, while underlining the need to eliminate subsidies harmful to the environment, such as those that promote the use of fossil fuels.“The green economy can take different forms, depending on the context of each country, its level of development, and its geographic location in particular,” said Mr. Deiss. “Some will begin by greening their transport infrastructure, others will prefer to promote ecotourism or organic agriculture,” he said.He said adopting greener economic models would require structural changes, with job losses in certain sectors and gains in others.Ms. Migiro emphasized that the green economy must be adapted to specific national circumstances, with each country determining how it can work for its people and for the planet.“For countries where poverty is rife, green economy measures must create abundant jobs and sustainable livelihoods. For countries that depend heavily on raw material exports, green economy measures must not displace vital economic sectors, but instead create dynamic new growth sectors,” she added. read more

Australia needs more migrants

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Australia will need more than 250,000 new migrants a year to raise living standards, a recent study by the Migration Council of Australia reveals.To reap the benefits of the reported $1.6 trillion that new migrants will add to the economy of an ageing population, treasurer Joe Hockey says it will require adequate planning.“You’d need to build more infrastructure to cope and that means government spending more money, so that’s a good debate to have and we welcome the debate,” said Mr Hockey.It’s something that Professor Anastasios Tamis believes has been lacking for the newly arrived Greek migrants and repatriating Australian citizens. “I don’t think the Australian government has done enough to accommodate those incoming immigrants and Australian citizens,” Professor Tamis told Neos Kosmos. “We were not well prepared to accommodate this incoming arrival. We didn’t have the infrastructure.”This is amongst the many topical issues covered in a book that was launched last night at the Greek Community Centre, entitled New Migration To and From Greece.The book is compiled by the University of Crete’s Professor Michalis Damanakis, an expert on the history of the Hellenic diaspora, along with a cohort of 10 scholars and researchers, which has put together a study on the new migration trends of Greece from 2009 onwards following the financial crisis.“The book covers the consequences of the new migration to and from Greece, and the consequences emerging from the hundreds of thousands of new immigrants settling in Greece during a period of crisis,” said Professor Tamis, co-editor of the book.Since the crisis first struck Greece in 2009, it is estimated that 145,000 Greeks have migrated abroad and many of them have ventured down under.Yet according to Professor Tamis, officials have found it difficult to say exactly how many have started to call Australia home.With a large percentage of Greeks born in Australia and living in Greece from the early 1980s, upon returning with their Australian citizenship they were not recorded as Greek migrants.Although the Intergenerational Report proves that countries like Australia can benefit from skilled and educated inhabitants of countries such as Greece seeking opportunities abroad, the Professor also highlights the negative impact this can have on the home country, referring to the movement as a ‘brain drainage’.“Greece is experiencing a brain drainage and thousands of Greeks are leaving, which is to the calamity and misfortune of the social structure of Greece for years to come, not only the present,” he says.last_img read more

Massive makeover possible for lower Columbia sport commercial fisheries

first_imgAt times, change has come to Columbia River fisheries at a glacial pace.But the restructuring of the lower Columbia commercial and sport fisheries under way now is more like an avalanche — wide, fast and no one quite knows what the landscape will look like when it’s finished.Oregon Gov. John Kitzhaber sent letters to the Oregon Fish and Wildlife Commission in mid-August directing the panel to boost hatchery salmon production in off-channel areas then transition the gillnet fishery to these areas.Sport fishing would be the priority in the mainstem lower Columbia.Kitzhaber’s move was a reaction to Measure 81 on Oregon’s November ballot. The measure would prohibit gillnets and tangle nets in Oregon inland waters and the governor said his plan is a better alternative.Washington is participating with Oregon in developing a possible new fisheries regime, but is not bound by the Kitzhaber vision.Phil Anderson, director of the Washington Department of Fish and Wildlife, said last week that “It felt somewhat like a shotgun wedding.”The Washington and Oregon commissions each appointed three members to serve as the Columbia River Fishery Management Workgroup. The workgroup will try to reach consensus on a huge overhaul of sport and commercial fishing in the lower Columbia — and have it done before the end of 2012.The first meeting of the workgroup was Friday in Olympia. The final meeting will be Oct. 18 in Portland. That’s an amazingly short time line for an undertaking involving so many stakeholders.last_img read more

For Kings dream The task is not done

first_img WASHINGTON — Tens of thousands of people marched to the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial and down the National Mall on Saturday, commemorating the 50th anniversary of King’s famous speech and pledging that his dream includes equality for gays, Latinos, the poor and the disabled.The event was an homage to a generation of activists who endured fire hoses, police abuse and indignities to demand equality for African Americans. But the theme was unfinished business.“This is not the time for nostalgic commemoration,” said Martin Luther King III, the oldest son of the slain civil rights leader. “Nor is this the time for self-congratulatory celebration. The task is not done. The journey is not complete. We can and we must do more.”Eric Holder, the nation’s first black attorney general, said he would not be in office, nor would Barack Obama be president, without those who marched.“They marched in spite of animosity, oppression and brutality because they believed in the greatness of what this nation could become and despaired of the founding promises not kept,” Holder said. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. delivers his “I Have a Dream” speech Aug. 28, 1963, to marchers at the Lincoln Memorial in Washington.last_img read more

Details slowly emerge surrounding Kodiak floatplane crash

first_imgDetails are slowly coming to light surrounding the crash last week of a floatplane flying for Island Air.Listen nowAccording to a preliminary report from the National Transportation Safety Board, the de Havilland DHC-2 Beaver took off from the city of Kodiak Friday morning and was headed to Amook Bay and Zachar Bay. The report says it crashed at around 11:30 a.m.Clint Johnson, Chief of the NTSB Alaska Regional Office, said the crash happened during a scheduled stop at Uganik Lake, which is 35 miles from the city of Kodiak.“And the reason for that stop was to drop a mechanic off to be able to take a look at another Island Air airplane that was disabled there just temporarily. This accident actually happened on takeoff when they were departing that intermediate stop.”Johnson said three witnesses described the scene.“During the departure to the west there were some pretty strong winds, gusty winds, and the airplane eventually took off to the west and towards an area of rising terrain, and basically, as the airplane got a little bit closer to that terrain, it started a gradual turn to the left. That turn steepened, and then unfortunately, the airplane descended nose first into the shallow waters of the lake on the western end there.”According to the U.S. Coast Guard, there were three people on board who all sustained serious, but nonfatal injuries, and Johnson says the Coast Guard medevac’d the victims to Kodiak and then to Anchorage.A Coast Guard press release describes a female with leg and spinal injuries and mentions that the two others had a possible broken hip and head trauma. A State Trooper email says the victims were pilot David Schleifer and passengers Steven and Linda Suydam, all three of Kodiak.Johnson says, as far as he knows, they are still at hospitals in Anchorage, and the NTSB intends to interview the pilot when he’s well enough to share his view of the events.last_img read more

McFaddens Political Career Coming to an End

first_imgBy Deborah Bailey, Special to the AFRONathaniel McFadden, State Senator of Baltimore’s 45th District, Senate President Pro Tem and chair of Baltimore’s senate delegation leaves his post this year, having played a critical role in providing representation and using every method in his legislative toolkit to ensure his district’s needs were heard in Annapolis.First elected to serve the 45th district in November 1995, McFadden came to the Maryland General Assembly and his supporters say he exhibited a careful combination of vigilant advocacy and diplomacy to advance legislation and critical state appropriations for the needs of the East Baltimore communities he represented.Sen. Nathaniel McFadden, the venerable East Baltimore politician served in the State Senate for more than two decades, before being defeated by Del. Cory McCray June 26. (Courtesy photo)They say McFadden walked that careful line, often making a personal call or visit to others who could help move an issue forward throughout his years of service.“Nathaniel McFadden is a true statesman who, for more than two decades, has fought tirelessly for the people he is sworn to represent. It is not uncommon for Sen. McFadden to call my office personally about an issue facing one of his constituents,” said Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-7th).McFadden grappled with the dilemma many Baltimore City legislators in Annapolis face; working with legislators in other parts of the state with little understanding of urban challenges. Moving through the ranks of the legislative process to become Senate President Pro Tem was one of the ways McFadden sought to create alliances that would benefit the 45th district and the city of Baltimore.“Sen. McFadden rose through the ranks of the Maryland Senate to become Senate President Pro Tem.  There is no doubt that his leadership and insights will be missed in Annapolis, but I am certain that Sen. McFadden will continue his life’s work of service to our community,” Cummings said.Many residents of the 45th believe McFadden delivered on change needed in the district.  The East Baltimore community was for many years overwhelmed with abandoned housing, blight, drugs, crime and poor living conditions for many.McFadden worked with a coalition of residents, institutions, including Johns Hopkins Hospital and community-based organizations, such as the Broadway East Community Association and East Broadway Development, to initiate a nationally recognized redevelopment process that has transformed large parts of East Baltimore.“The State of Maryland, Baltimore City and the EBDI project have benefited tremendously from Nathaniel McFadden’s service in the Maryland State Senate,” said Cheryl Washington, president and CEO of East Baltimore Development Inc. (EBDI).“Senator McFadden’s advocacy, leadership, and stewardship of the state’s resources were critical in helping EBDI achieve the substantial level of progress it has made towards the revitalization and redevelopment of Eager Park in Baltimore’s eastside, particularly during the great housing recession several years ago.  EBDI and the East Baltimore community will always be grateful for his service,” Washington said.The new “Middle East” project is far from the last word on community development needed in the 45th district. McFadden himself told the AFRO in a November 2017 interview that the changes needed in Baltimore just take time.“Seventeen years ago, we looked at East Baltimore and saw the crime and the devastation, and the drug problem and we said we need to attack it in multiple ways: health, education, housing…skill development and that takes time,” McFadden said.Although McFadden made a bid for another term in Annapolis, the 71-year-old State Senator publicly stated on several occasions that it would have been his last term.  On June 26th, McFadden gave way to a new generation of state leadership in the same courteous, gentle way that he greeted constituents, friends and even his enemies on a daily basis. McFadden lost to first time Delegate Cory McCray.Addressing his constituents, McFadden bowed out gracefully with gratitude for having touched the lives of his constituents and served his Maryland home for a generation.“It is now time it has been a wonderful 24 years as a State Senator and 5 as a City Councilman. I have been truly blessed and its now time for the next generation of leaders. I have left them a strong foundation to build upon. Thank you for all you have done for me, especially your prayers,” McFadden said.“God never makes a mistake and never puts more on you then you can handle He is Good all the time.”last_img read more

On an ESPN radio station in Los Angles Larry Sr

first_imgOn an ESPN radio station in Los Angles, Larry Sr. shared with the hosts his thoughts on his son and if he thinks Larry will sign an extension with the Arizona Cardinals. Those comments quickly became the source of Internet fodder and speculation.With headlines like ‘Larry Fitzgerald Sr. says Larry Jr. “always wanted to be a Viking”‘ popping up and many media members making assumptions about what his quotes really meant, I decided to go straight to the source to find out.Larry Sr. was kind enough to clarify his comments and expand upon them Friday via email. In an attempt to not take Mr. Fitzgerald or his comments out of context you can find my question and his response unedited below (The final answer is quite interesting).Q:In your interview with ESPN Los Angeles you told Max Kellerman and Marcellus Wiley that Larry Jr. “has always wanted to be a Viking because he is a Viking.” A lot of people in Arizona are taking that comment as if he is actively looking to return to Minnesota. What was your original intention with the comment?Larry Fitzgerald Sr.: I’m not in Arizona I’m not certain what people are saying. Larry Jr loves Minnesota it’s home it’s where the heart is. Larry Jr speaks for himself. I know he has said what he wants you to know. Remember he was born in Minnesota All-American in High School I got him his first job as a ball boy. LF Sr.: I have not talked to the Cardinals-Obviously I know them well- I know they have been good to my family. Mr. Bidwill, Michael, Mr. Graves they are like family but this is business. And its Larry Jr business he will do what he wants and believes is best and I’m OK with that.Q: What do you feel will be the most important factor in his decision?LF Sr.: Larry Jr loves Arizona and he loves being a Cardinal. His son Devin was born in Arizona- it will come down to Larry Jr doing what is best for how he sees his future.Q: In the end do you feel he’ll remain in Arizona?LF Sr.: I do not have a crystal ball and I have never talked to him about [the] contract. Just because they have the same name doesn’t mean that Larry Fitzgerald and his father Larry Fitzgerald Sr. share the same thoughts. The elder Fitzgerald is a sportswriter by trade and is no stranger to sharing his opinion with the world. In fact, he’s paid to do it. This week those opinions caused a bit of a stir as the subject matter turned to whether or not the younger Fitzgerald would remain in Arizona.

Were you speaking in terms of on field play or in negotiating a new contract?LF Sr.: The Cardinals are in the drivers seat as I see it and Larry Jr knows exactly what he wants and he has paid the price to get it.Q:Do you feel that you are being misquoted or mischaracterized by media and fans who are claiming your quotes are a clear sign that Larry is interested in exploring opportunities outside of Arizona?LF Sr.: It’s talk people talk. I may have been misquoted or people think or say whatever. I never said Larry Jr was going anywhere or is looking to go anywhere. He’s in training camp coming off a losing season and NFL lockout. Larry Jr wants to win badly he is a winner. We my late wife Carol an I raised a champion on and off the field.Q:Were your comments at all in response to the fact that the Cardinals have publicly said that they want to get a deal done before the end of the preseason and are willing to make him the highest paid player in franchise history thus putting pressure on Larry to sign an extension without exploring his options? center_img D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocationlast_img read more
