Bolsonaro assails Brazil network blaming him for virus deaths

first_imgNews anchors pointedly noted that an article in the Brazilian constitution states that “health is the right of all and the duty of the National Government.” They then asked, “Has the president of the republic done his duty?”Bolsonaro said in his tweet Sunday that “disinformation kills more than the virus.” He suggested that TV Globo was using COVID-19 for political purposes, which itself could lead to deaths.Bolsonaro has played down the coronavirus from the beginning, dismissing it as a “little flu,” questioning the lockdowns ordered by some state governors and saying their economic impact could be “more deadly than the virus.”  Bolsonaro said Sunday that he has a “clear conscience,” adding that “we have done everything possible to save lives.”On Saturday, numerous politicians sent messages of comfort to the families of the 100,000 people who died and criticized the government’s handling of the crisis. Congress and the Supreme Court announced a period of mourning.But Bolsonaro simply shared a tweet from a government spokesman emphasizing the number of people who have recovered from the virus — he is actually one of them — and making no mention of the death toll.  President Jair Bolsonaro lashed out Sunday at the “cowardice” of Brazil’s most widely viewed TV network for suggesting he bore heavy blame for the nation’s more than 100,000 coronavirus deaths.The far-right president accused TV Globo of treating the death milestone as if it were “a World Cup final,” saying on Twitter that it had been both “cowardly and disrespectful of the dead.”On Saturday night, shortly after the official announcement that the 100,000-death mark had been passed, TV Globo opened its news report with a long editorial highly critical of Bolsonaro’s handling of the health crisis.center_img Topics :last_img read more

Parents told to keep tabs as child sex on rise 22 May 2013A youth worker says children as young as 11 are having sex in Invercargill, which has one of the highest teenage pregnancy rates in New Zealand. She wanted to get the message out that children in the city were having sex and many parents did not know it was happening. “I want to stimulate conversation in the community and get people asking, what is happening to my children, where are they?” Southland Boys’ High School rector Ian Baldwin said he had been made aware of “at risk” boys in the city who could not connect with family, so had developed relationships with girls as young as 10 to 12 years old. He knew of vulnerable boys at the school who were seeking solace and comfort in “love” from young girls, which he believed stemmed from a lack of relationships at home. The illegal aspect of teenage sexual relationships did not impact on some boys, whom he believed carried on having sex regardless. read more

Pucker up! Kissing has great benefits

first_img 43 Views   no discussions Share Tweet Share LifestyleRelationships Pucker up! Kissing has great benefits by: – September 27, 2011center_img Sharing is caring! Share Image via: DavidMartynHunt/FlickrFolks go ga-ga over gettin’ it in. Smashin’. Knockin’ boots. Getting busy. Bumpin’ and grindin’. Dancing the horizontal cha-cha. Doing the nasty. Or, for you more traditional types, engaging in sexual intercourse. And yes, there is something to be said for the magic of having your body contorted and your hair all mussed as you huff and puff and sweat it out with the object of your desire. (Phew, is it ever.)But there’s also something so simplistically sexy and genuinely seductive about a kiss. It’s so personal and intimate and, unlike the ol’ naked hokey pokey, you can do it in public without fear of arrest or YouTube superstardom. Kissing also has a heap of health benefits, though, that are added bonuses to an already good thing. Tilt your head, close your eyes and pucker up — now for more reasons than just a little hot lip action.•Kissing keeps you young. Or, at the very least, young-looking. Studies show that amorous folks use 30 facial muscles to kiss, a sexy workout that tones cheeks and tightens the chin.•Kissing relieves allergies. Sufferers say amen! Histamine production can slow during a 30 minute make-out, relieving symptoms like sneezing and runny nose. Instead of reaching for a tissue, go in for a little lip action.•Kissing pumps you up. You don’t need to jump out of a plane or walk across hot coals to get a rush (insert hefty sigh of relief here). Stay safe and get a nice, hot kiss instead — it creates adrenaline, gets your blood pumping, and lowers blood pressure and cholesterol.•Kissing is like a mini-vaccination. Your lip lock triggers the release of antibodies that fight off disease-causing bacteria. And it’s a heck of a lot more fun than getting jabbed in the arm with a needle.•Kissing is relaxing. That floating-on-a-cloud feeling after getting some sugar is from increased endorphins and oxytocin — your body’s built-in feel-good and calming chemicals, respectively.•Kissing gives you pretty teeth. Well, that might be a teensy exaggeration, but the spit swapping works to neutralize nasty acids that cause tooth decay and may exchange mineral salts that strengthen enamel.•Kissing helps you live longer. Couples who give their significant other a little smooch before they go their separate ways in the morning live five years longer than those that don’t.•Kissing burns calories. You can melt up to 6 calories a minute during the course of a smoldering smooch, so instead of skipping dessert on a date, kindly ask your beau: are you planning on giving me a nice, long, hot kiss goodnight?Written by Janelle Harris on CafeMom’s blog, The Stirlast_img read more

Rooney believes in brighter future

first_img “I know United have spent £150million,” Neville told BBC Radio 5 live. “I think there’s another two transfer windows of similar amounts of money needed – maybe £100million – before they can even think about winning the title. “There are still key positions in the team that need filling. I think the centre-back position is obviously the key area. Holding midfield or centre midfield needs addressing too. “There were no world-class centre-backs out there (this summer). I think that’s why in the next two transfer windows, United might still be looking for that world-class defender.” However, he backed England internationals Jones and Smalling to eventually prove their worth to the club. “I am certain Chris Smalling will come good and I have full faith in Phil Jones as well,” Neville said. “They’ve bought of a lot of foreign players, you don’t get rid of your English spine.” United stand 12th in the Barclays Premier League after five matches, already eight points behind leaders Chelsea. Expectations of a major improvement after last season’s seventh-placed finish have been formed on the basis of the appointment of the experienced Van Gaal and the recruitment of players including Angel Di Maria, Daley Blind, Radamel Falcao, Luke Shaw and Ander Herrera. And Rooney is convinced the blossoming of the team will materialise, taking issue with those doubting United’s ability to respond to their current frustration. Rooney wrote on his Facebook page: “There seems to be a lot of people who have written us off because of Sunday’s result but I don’t see it that way. “When I look around our dressing room and see the quality we have and the manager’s unbelievable attention to detail I have no doubts this team will be successful.” Earlier, former United defender Phil Neville predicted this summer’s big spending would need to be repeated in future transfer windows before the club can again be seen as title contenders. United have struggled in central defence this season as Chris Smalling, Phil Jones and Jonny Evans battle for form and fitness and youngster Tyler Blackett seeks to establish himself. And Neville believes that is the biggest issue still to be addressed. Striker Rooney, who was appointed captain by the Dutch boss in the summer, could not prevent Leicester turning over the Red Devils on Sunday. A 3-1 lead for United slipped away as Leicester claimed a stunning 5-3 victory at the King Power Stadium. Wayne Rooney insists the future is bright for Manchester United despite their inconsistent form under manager Louis van Gaal. Press Associationlast_img read more

Badminton News Sameer ensures a dramatic victory for Mumbai Rockets at PBL 4

first_img For all the Latest Sports News News, Badminton News News, Download News Nation Android and iOS Mobile Apps. Pune: Sameer Verma and Anders Antonsen combined to help Mumbai Rockets beat Awadhe Warriors at the Premier Badminton League Season 4 in Balewadi on Monday. The World No. 18 Antonsen stunned the former World No. 1 Son Wan Ho to give the crucial lead to Mumbai after the two were tied 2-2 following the respective Trump wins of the two teams.  BWF World Tour Finals semi-finalist Sameer Verma then completed the job for the two-time runners-up with a three-game victory over Lee Dong Keun.The biggest talking point of the day was the coming-of-performance by the 21-year-old Antonsen. Former World No. 1 Son Wan Ho had the upper hand in the initial stages. Showing some impressive footwork, he managed to repeatedly draw errors to race ahead to 11-5 before wrapping up the opener 15-6.Refusing to relent after that fine start, the Hong Kong Open champion ruthlessly kept attacking the Antonsen forehand wing to hit winners. However, this time his 4-3 lead was overturned by a resilient Antonsen who upped the ante to go up to 8-5 in a stunning turnaround.Also Read | ICC Test Player Rankings: Virat Kohli, Kagiso Rabada end 2018 on top spotsSon fought back valiantly to make it an even affair at 8-8 only to see a spirited Antonsen take the game 15-11. The decider turned out to be one scintillating affair where nothing could separate the two.In a highly exciting finish to the match, a charged up Antonsen kept coming back every time Son got a point before he sneaked past the Korean to take the 6-15, 15-11, 15-14 win. World No. 12 Sameer Verma kept firing on all cylinders to make a fabulous start to his match against Awadhe’s Lee Dong Keun.The match, however, had a different complexion in the second game when the Malaysian started injecting pace and power into his shots to trouble Sameer.A stunned Verma conceded the second game to build a 4-2 lead in the decider. The momentum kept oscillating between the two until 9-9 when Sameer found a wondrous down-the-line smash.Buoyed up by that winner, Sameer kept adding points steadily to take the 15-11, 8-15, 15-11 win. Earlier, Awadhe Trump Beiwen Zhang started off the tie on a confident note, looking every bit the World No. 10 shuttler that she is.Also Read | Virat Kohli sounds warning to Australia – ‘Not going to stop with win in Melbourne’The India Open champion was coming off a strong win over PV Sindhu in her earlier assignment and she simply continued from there. Controlling the shuttle beautifully, Zhang kept the young World No. 202 Shreyanshi Pardeshi on the move.Opening up the court smartly she banked on her precise shuttle placement and great netplay to dash all hopes of the youngster and record a commanding 15-10, 15-10 win. Mumbai’s Trump men’s doubles pair of Lee Yong Dae and Kim Gi Jung then brought back their side into contention with a strong 15-7, 15-9 win over Awadhe’s Yang Lee and Season 4 debutant MR Arjun. The Mumbai duo had lost their last match but rebounded in style in this one. last_img read more

USC Libraries to provide better access tools

first_imgUSC Libraries has begun actively working to improve the overall library experience for people in the USC community as part of the Essential Library, a new initiative.Studying · Ashish Ingle, a graduate student studying business administration, studies in the Thomas and Dorothy Leavey Library. – Kelvin Kuo | Daily Trojan Catherine Quinlan, the dean of USC Libraries, said the strategic plan aims to provide comprehensive access tools, establish partnerships with outside organizations and create an intellectually stimulating environment that fosters productive research.Currently, the libraries are focusing on making all information easily accessible for students, while increasing student knowledge about research itself, according to Quinlan.“Students and faculty come here not just to find materials, but to find help. Today we have more places to find information, but it doesn’t always lead to good information,” Quinlan said. “So our job is to help everyone become a critical consumer.”Hugh McHarg, executive director of Communications and Public Programming of USC Libraries, said USC Libraries want to create a mobile website that would allow for access to library resources through phones and tablets to make basic research easier for students on the go.For the future, Quinlan has her eyes set on refurbishing Leavey Library and possibly optimizing it with more accommodations and computers for students and some students are excited by that possibility.“Leavey just seems so cold and harsh, so if they could fix that I would definitely be more inclined to study there,” Julianne Coronado, a senior majoring in social sciences (economics) said.Quinlan said USC Libraries needs to revisit how the space is being used in Leavey Library because the desks were originally meant to hold bulky computers instead of the smaller, slimmer ones used today.The first plan to improve the libraries began when Quinlan accepted her position in the fall of 2007. She said the libraries were not organized as well as they should have been, causing a decrease in usage by students.“I remember looking for a book in the philosophy library and it wasn’t there. As it turned out, that book hadn’t been there for ten years — it was over in Doheny,” Quinlan said. “Well, if that’s the service we’re giving people, no wonder they’re not using our collections because they can’t find what they’re looking for.”Quinlan said her staff worked to reorganize Doheny Library this fall by putting more than one million books on the nine floors in the proper sequence.“We’re on an ascending level of quality, but there’s always going to be more and more to do,” Quinlan said.Quinlan said she hopes the changes will draw more students to USC libraries in the near future.“I’m hoping that we’re bursting at the seams, because we have so many people that want to get engaged with the libraries and want to showcase our selections,” Quinlan said. “I want people coming to us all the time because they see us as an important part of their research.”last_img read more

Broullon Holds On to One-Vote Lead for Highlands Mayor

first_imgHIGHLANDS – Election results for Highlands mayor remain unchanged after a recount Dec. 10. Carolyn Broullon has a one-vote lead over incumbent Mayor Rick O’Neil. She, her wife and her attorney attended the recount Tuesday, as did O’Neil, one of his campaign representatives, his attorney and a council member. Broullon described the scene as quiet and “interesting.” As election commissioners counted the votes, they spoke the results as well and the can- didates were able to keep live tallies as the recount progressed. She said it was a shame the procedure couldn’t be recorded, as it would be a “cool way to show kids how very important” the process is. Official tallies show that Broullon has 603 votes versus O’Neil’s 602 votes. “If anyone ever doubted that their vote doesn’t count, it does,” said Broullon. Broullon also said she was not surprised by the outcome. “This process works, because now it has been hand-verified,” she said. “They’re literally hand-counting.” O’Neil did not return The Two River Times’ requests for comment.As of Dec. 12, O’Neil had 10 days to contest the election results. He would need to petition the court and provide evidence to a judge as to why he feels there could be an error with the results. That could be for a host of reasons, like if some people voted who shouldn’t have because they no longer live in town.last_img read more
