Trini artist for Atlanta exhibition

 Cache   

THE WORK of Trinidadian artist Andrea McKenzie has been recognised with an award in Atlanta, Georgia, US, and will also be displayed this month in the Atlanta Mayor's Gallery.

McKenzie, who is based in Atlanta, recently won the 2019 I am Black, I am Power, Art and Creativity award from the Black People United Global Network with "Black" being an acronym for Beautiful Living Ancestors Controlling Kingdoms Irreplaceable Amazing Melanin.

The founder and CEO of Black People United Global Network, Dr Angela Harris, said the body, which was founded in December 2015, seeks to "strategically honour people of all nationalities and religions in the black race from all around the world.

"Our mission is to collectively come together under one roof to give recognition to well-deserving individuals who have gone above and beyond to help the relevancy of our image as a race to have a positive influence on our families, communities and business through their God-given gifts and talents."

[caption id="attachment_794566" align="alignnone" width="742"] Atlanta, Georgia-based Trinidadian artist Andrea McKenzie with her award I am Black, I am Power, I am Creativity from the Black People United Network with a portrait of the group's CEO and founder Dr Angela Harris. -[/caption]

McKenzie told Newsday via e-mail that she was nominated anonymously for the award.

"I felt honoured to be recognised amongst thousands of artists in the city of Atlanta, Georgia. I always work hard towards perfecting my craft and achieving my goals. Receiving this award brought great fulfilment and pride to be able to represent my country internationally in the arts."

McKenzie's work was also selected by the mayor of Atlanta, Keisha Lance Bottoms, to be exhibited at the Mayor's Gallery, City Hall, Atlanta, from November 14- January 4 in a dual exhibition called SANKOFA (go back and get it).

"I'm very excited to be given this amazing opportunity."

The exhibit will feature ten pieces from McKenzie of mixed media including glass, acrylic, resin, glitter and cowrie shells. She said her new, unique style is giving her the breakthrough, "as no one is doing it in Georgia."

[caption id="attachment_794568" align="alignnone" width="481"] The piece I Am by Andrea McKenzie. -[/caption]

Atlanta's Mayor’s Office of Cultural Affairs (OCA), in an online post, announced the exhibition by McKenzie and Ghana-born artist Alfred Addo. The joint exhibition commemorates the ideas embodied in Ghana’s Year of Return, a reflection on the 400th anniversary of the first enslaved Africans' arrival in Jamestown, Virginia.

Addo was born to a family of artists and has been exposed to art since infancy. OCA noted his primary inspiration came from his father, who exhibited his work regularly and challenged Addo to produce unique artwork.

"Although Addo was passionate about art, he also possessed a keen interest in the physical sciences, a field he found satisfyingly challenging. He was torn between going to college to study medicine and pursuing his passion to be a professional artist. In the end, he chose to follow his passion and pursue art full-time.

[caption id="attachment_794567" align="alignnone" width="452"] The piece is titled Unchained Love by Andrea McKenzie. -[/caption]

"Since then, Addo has specialised in sculpture as his core medium. Interestingly, his physical science background led him to experiment with different materials, including sawdust, which he played with as a child in the sawmill where his father bought and cut wood for his sculptures. Naturally, Addo grew up loving this medium and decided to make it the main material he uses in all his artwork. Passionate about the sustainability of the earth, Addo perfected the method of recycling sawdust and waste materials to create various types of sculptures and relief works."

Addo has successfully participated in many international art exhibitions in places including Johannesburg, Cape Town, New York, Chicago, Washington, DC, Miami, Santa Fe, New Mexico, Atlanta, San Diego, California, Martha’s Vineyard and in his home city Accra, Ghana.

OCA described McKenzie as "a true island girl" who comes from one of the most culturally diverse nations in the world, TT, and her natural aptitude for creativity was nurtured at an early age because of her family’s involvement in the nation’s world-famous Carnival.

"McKenzie’s fascination with contrast, textures, and fabrics was the fuel behind her kaleidoscope-like pieces. She uniquely infused glass, acrylic, and other materials on varying canvas, which propelled her into achieving a viable international clientèle."

OCA noted throughout her young career, she has exhibited works in multiple nations including TT and neighbouring Caribbean islands. Her art has also been exhibited in New York, Washington, DC, Atlanta, Philadelphia, Seattle, London and Australia.

[caption id="attachment_794569" align="alignnone" width="638"] Atlanta, Georgia-based Trinidadian artist Andrea McKenzie. -[/caption]

In 2013, after losing her job in event marketing, McKenzie pursued her passion for art and became a full-time artist, with clients in the US and Europe. As a full-time artist, she does commissioned pieces where people contact her via e-mail or on her website and let her know what they want, whether it is for their homes or businesses.

Her first exhibition, Pieces of Me, was held in Trinidad in 2013 and featured 25 pieces about her and life experiences, including first love and first disappointment.

McKenzie has clients from countries such as the US, Sweden, England, Scotland and TT. She works primarily with acrylic on canvas or wood board. Her dream is to have her pieces featured in the set decoration of successful television shows and box office movies and showcased all over the world.

Sanitary Segregation: Cleansing Accra and Nairobi, 1908-1963

 Cache   

The dissertation begins by examining the segregationist plans of William Simpson in Accra and Nairobi in the British colonies of the Gold Coast (Ghana) and Kenya. Simpson was one of British Empire’s foremost sanitary and urban health experts who advised the Colonial Office in London. When contagious diseases threatened the very existence of colonies, his expertise was vital in stabilizing the empire and spreading segregationist ideas and practices in cities worldwide during the twentieth century. By focusing on the sanitary bases of segregation, the project transcends the difference historians and political scientists often attribute to settler and non-settler colonial states. Scholarly work concentrates on race and culture as well as the nature of colonial rule and its legacy in order to distinguish settler and non-settler colonies. This research on the historical development of Accra and Nairobi, the urban areas where British officials governed the colonies, however, provides a narrative of profound similarities. Sanitation cut across “color” boundaries and inscribed privilege on the urban landscapes of the two different colonial cities. Primary materials collected from archives and libraries across Ghana, Kenya, the U.S.A and the U.K. prove that the tenacious presence of ordinary Africans in the colonial capitals often thwarted colonial urban planning and development, which often excluded their sanitary needs. An historical analysis of colonial infrastructural development schemes meant to mitigate the uneven sanitary cityscapes reveal the challenges of governments in providing basic sanitation to most urban residents. The challenges continued to frustrate contemporary urban planners and development experts seeking to build sustainable cities for the ever-growing urban populations in the two African cities.

Mali: WHO AFRO Outbreaks and Other Emergencies, Week 44: 28 October - 3 November 2019 Data as reported by: 17:00; 3 November 2019

 Cache   
Source: World Health Organization
Country: Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Cameroon, Central African Republic, Chad, Comoros, Congo, Côte d'Ivoire, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Ethiopia, Ghana, Guinea, Kenya, Lesotho, Liberia, Mali, Mozambique, Namibia, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, South Sudan, Togo, Uganda, United Republic of Tanzania, Zambia

Overview

This Weekly Bulletin focuses on public health emergencies occurring in the WHO African Region. The WHO Health Emergencies Programme is currently monitoring 68 events in the region. This week’s main articles cover key new and ongoing events, including:

  • Measles in Lesotho

  • Hepatitis E in Namibia

  • Humanitarian crisis in Mali

  • Ebola virus disease in Democratic Republic of the Congo.

For each of these events, a brief description, followed by public health measures implemented and an interpretation of the situation is provided.

A table is provided at the end of the bulletin with information on all new and ongoing public health events currently being monitored in the region, as well as recent events that have largely been controlled and thus closed.

Major issues and challenges include:

  • The hepatitis E outbreak first identified in Namibia in December 2017 continues, despite response efforts made to date to halt ongoing transmission of the virus. The major drivers of the outbreak remain the same, limited access to safe drinking water, inadequate sanitation and poor personal and food safety practices. Novel initiatives are therefore needed to address the outbreak such as finalising the review of the relevance and feasibility of a vaccination intervention. There is also a need to sustain conventional control activities, particularly in the informal settlements, and strengthen surveillance and coordination mechanisms in all the affected areas.

  • The humanitarian situation in Mali remains complex and volatile. The number of IDPs has continued to rise as a result of the deteriorating security context and the impact of floods experienced earlier in the year. As well as supporting the immediate needs of the population, the resilience of the health system to epidemics and public health emergencies needs to be reinforced.
    Furthermore, local and international authorities and partners must continue to advocate for peace in the region in order to relieve the suffering of this vulnerable population.

(Ghana, South Africa, Namibia) 6) LGBT's ultimate agenda is to be accepted just like Adultery is. We will not fail, no matter how hard you try.

UN policewoman recognized for ‘speaking up and speaking out’ on behalf of the vulnerable

 Cache   
INTERNATIONAL, 5 November 2019, Peace and Security - At the core of peacekeeping lies the notion of shared responsibility, the UN peacekeeping chief said on Tuesday, presenting this year’s award for Female Police Officer of the Year, to a woman who “has made a career of speaking up and speaking out on behalf of all vulnerable populations”.

Police Major Seynabou Diouf has worked “tirelessly with her colleagues inside and outside the Mission to empower women, improve conduct, enhance protection, strengthen performance, and thereby build sustainable peace”, Jean-Pierre Lacroix, Peace Operations chief, told the heads of UN police and police experts from 14 peacekeeping operations, gathered at the award ceremony at UN Headquarters in New York.

Major Diouf is one of over 1,400 female police officers serving under the UN flag, carrying out a complex range of tasks – from capacity-building and reform, to community-oriented policing, investigations, protection of civilians, and prevention of sexual and gender-based violence.

“That is impressive enough”, asserted Mr. Lacroix, “but they also provide the added value of gender perspectives and mainstreaming at all levels and at all phases of engagement with host-State institutions and communities”.

He cited examples in South Sudan where female officers are helping women and youth attain better living conditions within and outside camps for the internally displaced; the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) where they are helping to build capacity and accountability in internal security forces; and Mali by promoting confidence-building between citizens and the reconstituted internal defence and security forces.

“Our female officers are also operating in areas affected by the Ebola virus disease, ensuring the required level of security for relief and humanitarian operations”, he maintained.

And female officers are a key element in the sensitization and delivery of training on sexual exploitation and abuse (SEA) throughout all UN Missions.

“As part of female police officers’ networks, such as the one Major Diouf leads in MONUSCO [UN Stabilization Mission in the DRC], they help prevent, counter and investigate SEA-related offences, advancing the Organization’s zero-tolerance policy”, elaborated the peacekeeping chief. He congratulated Major Diouf “for her outstanding service” to the UN Nations and Congolese people and stated that “all UN police officers in the field and at the UN Headquarters are inspired” by her example to uphold the core values of the Organization.

Previous Awardees
  • 2018: Chief Supt. Phyllis Osei, Ghana, UNSOM
  • 2017: Assistant Inspector Annah Chota, Zimbabwe, UNISFA
  • 2016: Supt. Yvette Boni Zombre, Burkina Faso, MINUSCA
  • 2015: Chief Supt. Raluca Domuta, Romania, MINUSTAH
  • 2014: Inspector Shakti Devi, India, UNAMA
  • 2013: Commissioner Codou Camara, Senegal, MINUSTAH
  • 2012: Constable Rezi Danismend, Turkey, UNMIL
  • 2011: Deputy Supt. Shahzadi Gulfam, Pakistan, UNMIT

Mr. Lacroix also thanked her family for supporting her and making sacrifices during her long deployments. “The more women we have in peacekeeping, the more effective we all will be”, he concluded.

Going the extra mile

Top UN Police Adviser, Luis Carrilho, spoke about Major Diouf’s experience, noting that in her native Senegal she became the first female police officer to be honoured as a Gardien de la Paix, which was previously reserved for male officers.

“Since early in her career, she has shown her determination to make the extra effort, go the extra mile, to achieve her goals”, he spelled out, flagging that as the team leader of an SEA task force in Goma and president of the UNPOL Women’s Network, “she has demonstrated her commitment to giving women a voice and putting an end to SEA”.

“Her efforts have helped the mission to achieve zero SEA cases in 2018, compared to 140 cases between 2016 and 2017”, he attested, calling her “an incredible force for good in our ongoing efforts to root out SEA and ensure UN personnel at all levels perform to the highest standards”.

Motivated to do more

When Major Diouf learned that she had been selected to receive the award, she said she was proud, but also “humble to be recognized for something that has become almost second nature” to her and her life’s work.

“When I was young, I wanted to be a medical doctor but there was an urgent need to help support my family”, she told those assembled. “Being a police officer in the early years of female recruitment provided recognition and a decent salary, but it also allowed me to contribute to society in ways I had never thought possible”.

With this new accolade, Major Diouf says she now feels “motivated to do more” and will continue “to promote women's rights, speak out against sexual and gender-based violence, and fight marginalization and discriminatory customary and religious practices targeted at women and girls”.

Smallholder farmers have expressed relief as they no longer have to source for expensive and unreliable funding for their farming activities. 

This was at the launch of the Ghana Warehouse Receipt Financing in Kumasi, the Ashanti Regional capital, a collaboration between the ARB Apex Bank, the Ghana Commodity Exchange (GCX), and the International Finance Corporation of the World Bank Group (IFC).

The farmers who expressed their happiness during the launch also acknowledged that the Warehouse Receipt Financing initiative will enable them to produce more without selling their produce at distress prices due to lack of funds for production.

A farmer from Wa in the Upper West Region, Hajia Abdulai Maimuna observed that access to credit from the Warehouse Receipt Financing present real opportunity for her and other colleague farmers to improve their livelihoods through increased production.

She emphasised that “this will address one of our biggest challenges and when we secure loans from the banks after storing our grains at the warehouse, we will use the funds to reinvest in our farming business or other activities for extra income.”

Mr Frederick Adomako, another farmer from Wenchi in the Bono East Region, also noted that the loan support will help him and other farmers to purchase agricultural inputs for their farming activities without necessarily selling off their grains at very low prices.

“The financial support from the bank will help us buy the needed inputs for our farming”, he stated. Mr. Adomako further explained that “most often we borrow at high cost just to buy these things making our farming business unprofitable”.

The warehouse receipt is a document of title given to farmers after they store their produce in a certified warehouse. The farmers are then able to use the warehouse receipt as collateral to secure financial assistance from the Ghana Warehouse Receipt System (WRS) partner banks.

Addressing the key stakeholders including hundreds of farmers at the launch, the Country Lead for the IFC Ghana WRS Project Mrs. Doreen Oppan, stressed that the IFC would continue to jointly facilitate technical support, capacity development and education activities for the Rural and Community Banks and their network of farmers.

She added that “We will also aim at closer collaborations with key stakeholders to create a more robust legal and policy environment and also strengthen our work with state actors such as the Ghana Standards Authority, for the creation of a trusted regulatory entity for warehouse operations backed by the law.”

Mrs. Oppan stressed that it is the expectation of IFC that the lives of farmers would be positively impacted, postharvest loses would be minimized, trading would be more efficient and particularly the commitment by banks to finance warehouse receipts would deepen as it provides a trusted mechanism to finance the agriculture sector thereby strengthening the ecosystem for a successful Ghana Commodity Exchange.

The IFC Ghana WRS Project is being implemented in nine regions of the country with financial support from the Swiss Secretariat for Economic Affairs (SECO).

The project is a technical assistance and advisory services project aimed at setting up a well-functioning regulated WRS that is expected to facilitate increased access to credit to farmers and the supply chain, linkage to structured markets and reduction in post-harvest storage loses. This intervention focuses on supporting a well-functioning WRS as a necessary pre-condition for a successful implementation of the GCX.

The project addresses WRS on a policy and regulatory level, system level, including technical advisory, training, capacity building and awareness-raising for various stakeholders in the public and private sector.

CAN U-23 : Objectif les Jeux Olympiques 2020

 Cache   

Le 8 novembre prochain, le Mali fera son entrée en lice dans la CAN U-23 face au pays hôte, l’Égypte. Dans le groupe A de cette compétition, avec le Ghana, le Cameroun et les Pharaons, les Aigles Espoirs devront terminer à l’une des deux premières places pour accéder aux demi-finales, qualificatives pour les Jeux Olympiques de Tokyo 2020.

Les équipes qui termineront sur le podium représenteront l’Afrique. Glaner au moins l’une de ces places est «un objectif global » pour Fagneri Diarra, l’entraineur des U-23. « Toutes les équipes en phase finale se valent » précise-t-il. L’équipe malienne, au Qatar depuis lundi, doit y rencontrer deux sélections locales.

Préparation tronquée

Au départ, elle était prévue en deux phases. Une première à Bamako, avec quatre matchs au programme, et la seconde à l’extérieur. Mais l’étape bamakoise a finalement été annulée. En cause, l’absence de certains joueurs, jouant pour la plupart à l’étranger et qui n’ont pu se rendre disponibles. En outre, d’autres ne rejoindront la sélection que le 4 novembre, veille du départ de l’équipe vers Le Caire, où se déroulera la compétition. 21 joueurs ont été présélectionnés pour ce stage qatari, dont 4 locaux.

Difficiles négociations

Cette compétition n’étant pas programmée pendant les fenêtres FIFA, rien n’oblige les clubs à libérer leurs joueurs. Le Mali en a un peu fait les frais, mais d’autres équipes aussi. Fagneri Diarra devra se passer de Sekou Koita et de Mohamed Camara, Salzbourg ayant opposé une fin de non-recevoir à la demande malienne pour ses deux joueurs. Amadou Haidara, le milieu de terrain international, qui a disputé le match aller de la rencontre qualificative face au Maroc, n’a pas non plus reçu le quitus de son club (Leipzig). Certains supporteurs ambitieux espéraient voir Boubacar « Kiki » Kouyaté, Mamadou Fofana ou encore Moussa Djenepo, tous internationaux. Le calendrier ne le permet pas, la sélection senior disputant son premier match de la qualification pour la CAN 2021 en même temps que la dernière rencontre de poule des Espoirs (14 novembre). Mais, en dépit de ces absences, l’équipe a fière allure, avec l’excellent gardien Youssouf Koita, le virevoltant Aly Mallé et le très pesant Ibrahima Koné, pour ne citer qu’eux. Dans l’ensemble, Diarra peut compter sur une grande partie de l’effectif qui l’a aidé à se qualifier et conserve son ossature.

El Atlético, en el diván de las primeras partes

 Cache   

Derrotado en Leverkusen (2-1), incapaz de marcar en la primera mitad en diez de sus últimos trece encuentros oficiales, en los cuales solo ha logrado cuatro victorias (el resto fueron siete empates y dos derrotas), el Atlético de Madrid se recuesta en el diván en busca de respuestas a su mala dinámica.

Los síntomas que podría relatar como paciente a un facultativo fueron explícitos anoche en Alemania, donde cayó por 2-1 ante el Bayer Leverkusen y desperdició una oportunidad de dejar asegurada la clasificación a los octavos de final de la Liga de Campeones.

Falta de intensidad en la primera mitad, inexistencia de la presión al inicio de la jugada del contrario, ausencia de ambición para intentar gobernar el partido desde su inicio, poca participación de los laterales en el ataque -tan relevantes al inicio de la temporada-, lo que redundó en la falta de remates a la portería contraria en los primeros 45 minutos.

Si a esos signos habituales en los últimos partidos del conjunto rojiblanco se le suma una inusual fragilidad defensiva vivida ayer en el BayArena de la ciudad del oeste germano, vislumbrada en cada saque de esquina del conjunto local, en la mala fortuna del centrocampista ghanés Thomas Partey al intentar despejar un córner que acabó como autogol para el 1-0, y al desacierto de Mario Hermoso y la pasividad del brasileño Felipe en el segundo, se completa el panorama de dificultades del Atlético.

Unos problemas que conocen en el seno del vestuario rojiblanco. Anoche el centrocampista Saúl Ñíguez ofreció el diagnóstico, sin necesidad de bata blanca, nada más concluir el encuentro.

‘Otra vez hemos tirado la primera parte, como muchas veces esta temporada. No hemos estado y cada vez queda menos tiempo y tenemos que aprender ya (...) Parece que vamos remando siempre contra corriente en la segunda mitad, porque regalamos la primera, y esto no tiene que ser así’, dijo el futbolista a ‘Movistar’.

La reflexión del centrocampista ilicitano no admite matices si se echa la vista atrás: el Atlético fue incapaz de gobernar la primera parte ante el Sevilla (1-1 final) y el Alavés (1-1), sufrió aunque marcó al Athletic (ganó 2-0), tampoco logró marcar en los primeros 45 al Bayer Leverkusen en casa (victoria 1-0), ni al Valladolid (0-0), el Lokomotiv de Moscú (triunfo 0-2), el Real Madrid (0-0), el Celta de Vigo (0-0) o la Real Sociedad (derrota 2-0).

Volviendo a Leverkusen, los datos de su presentación en la primera mitad apoyan aún más la tesis: ningún tiro a puerta ni saque de esquina provocado antes del descanso, en el que apenas protagonizó un fuera de juego; mientras que el conjunto alemán tiró al menos una vez a puerta (un tiro flojo del alemán Kevin Volland que atrapó Jan Oblak) y sacó siete córners (en uno casi se marca autogol Felipe, y en el siguiente llegó el gol en propia de Thomas). Huelga señalar la posesión de balón: 63 % local, 37 % visitante.

‘No volvimos a hacer un buen primer tiempo. Nos costó mucho el arranque del partido, posteriormente vino el gol y generó más dudas en nuestro juego’, admitió el entrenador argentino Diego Pablo Simeone tras el partido, cuando aseguró que ‘el primer responsable’ es él.

‘La motivación inicial para los partidos es del entrenador. Está claro que habrá que mejorar para llegar más profundo’, añadió el preparador, en declaraciones a ‘Movistar’ en el BayArena.

Simeone también valoró que su equipo, como ya le ha ocurrido en varios partidos de esta última serie de duelos con malos arranques en la primera parte, volvió a mejorar en la segunda. ‘Tuvimos ocasiones, nos pusimos 2-0 y al final tuvimos opciones para llegar al empate’, agregó.

Ciertamente, pese el desafortunado tanto del 2-0 alemán a cargo de Volland, en el que el extremo Karim Bellarabi centra con comodidad ya que Saúl Ñíguez está a distancia, Mario Hermoso no acierta a despejar el balón y Felipe no consigue anticiparse al remate del delantero alemán; el Atlético mejoró en el segundo acto.

Tiró ocho veces a puerta y provocó tres córners, gracias en gran medida al paso atrás del conjunto local tras verse con una distancia de dos tantos, y con el concurso del extremo Víctor Machín ‘Vitolo’, que ingresó en el minuto 61 por Diego Costa. También lo hicieron el francés Thomas Lemar y el mexicano Héctor Herrera.

Y pudo incluso empatar, si la racha de Álvaro Morata, que encadena cinco partidos seguidos marcando (Bayer, Athletic, Alavés, Sevilla y de nuevo ayer en Leverkusen), se hubiera ampliado a dos tantos en Alemania. Tuvo una ocasión, a pase de Thomas en el 94, y acertó; en la segunda, un minuto después tras un error alemán, su remate se encontró con el pie derecho del portero Lukas Hradecky.

Un empate habría sido, probablemente, premio excesivo para un Atlético que cuajó un mal encuentro, con el que se complica la vida en la Liga de Campeones, pero que aún cuenta con las opciones en su mano para pasar a la fase eliminatoria.

Segundo del Grupo D con 7 puntos, una victoria en Turín ante el Juventus italiano, ya clasificado con 10, el próximo 26 de noviembre, pondría al Atlético en octavos. Incluso perdiendo podría clasificarse, si gana en la última jornada en el Wanda Metropolitano al Lokomotiv ruso (11 de diciembre).

La calculadora aún le permite al Atlético ser optimista, pero solucionar sus problemas en las primeras partes de los partidos y conseguir ser competitivo los 90 minutos es, a día de hoy, una necesidad perentoria para el conjunto rojiblanco, si quiere retomar la senda de las altas aspiraciones que se corresponden con su historia y su actual plantilla.

Radcliffe Institute conference on activist Angela Davis
Gallery View

On Tuesday morning, Elizabeth Hinton told everyone to get ready. The second and final—and fullest—day of a Radcliffe Institute  conference honoring radical activist and global icon Angela Davis was about to start. Davis herself was seated in the front row, smiling beneath her instantly recognizable afro, now a shade of silver-gray. A capacity crowd filled the Knafel Center behind her. Hinton, halfway through her welcoming remarks, was talking about the difficult issues and “contested truths” the rest of the conference would grapple with. “If you are not uncomfortable at some point during the day,” said the Harvard historian, who chaired the event’s organizing committee, “then we’re not doing our jobs.”

For the next eight hours, the panelists—scholars, activists, educators—would discuss revolution and liberation and the fight against violent oppression. They’d talk about feminisms (plural) and blackness and queer solidarity; they’d talk about anti-capitalism and the prison-abolition movement. They’d talk about Palestine and apartheid South Africa and northern Syria. And Brazil, where Davis traveled a few weeks ago and met with the family of Marielle Franco, the human rights activist and Rio politician who was assassinated in 2018, a few months before repressive politician Jair Bolsonaro was elected president.

And the panelists would also talk about Harvard, whose recent acquisition of Davis’s papers—now archived in the Schlesinger Library and available to scholars starting this week—catalyzed the conference. Hinton praised the increasingly prominent University-hosted discussions like this one, but she also pushed back. “We can’t be in a space confronting Angela Davis’s life’s work and its implications,” she said, “without recognizing the struggles against racism and oppression that are very much alive on this campus.” She described a recent incident in which Harvard police confronted a group of students of color in the Yard as they were preparing a poetry installation for a class. And she cited the Harvard Prison Divestment Campaign, whose leaders have been demanding that the University withdraw its investments from prison-related industries. For more than a year, the campaign “has engaged the entire campus in thinking about the kinds of investments Harvard can and should make to advance social justice and equality, including expanding educational opportunities for incarcerated and formerly incarcerated people,” said Hinton, whose scholarly work focuses on the carceral state. She has been pushing Harvard to provide education in prisons since she first arrived in Cambridge six years ago. 

Other speakers, too, declared support for the Harvard divestment campaign, including Davis herself. “Of course I would support your efforts to persuade the University to divest from the prison-industrial complex,” Davis replied to a student who stood up late in the program to ask whether she would take a stand. (She also brought up the Harvard Graduate Student Union, which remains at odds with the University in its contract negotiations; the union voted overwhelmingly last week to authorize a strike. “I want to offer them support and solidarity,” Davis said, referring to the union. She echoed panelist and UCLA historian Robin D.G. Kelley, who earlier in the day had urged Harvard to come to an agreement with the students.)

Ruth Wilson Gilmore, a cofounder with Davis of the prison-abolition organization Critical Resistance, also answered a question about the Harvard divestment campaign. “Everyone should fight how they need to fight,” she said. “But: plan to win.” She explained what she meant: “Let us say that the divest committee gets Harvard to divest tonight. What changes for anybody in a cage tomorrow morning? Nothing.” Divestment, she explained, can be a fight worth having, but she admonished students to be cognizant of the limits of its effect, and also to think about how to build and extend that campaign not only to achieve a circumscribed goal, but also to change public consciousness about prison. “Fight what you’re fighting, but think about what happens the next morning.” 

“That said,” she added, “a multi-, multi-, multi-, multi-billion-dollar empire like Harvard … could use its economic clout” to pressure banks not to issue bonds to state and municipal governments to build new prisons. “If Harvard said, ‘We won’t do business with any bank that will write a bond to build any prison, whether public or not,’ that will be meaningful.”

 

Much of the day seemed to unfold that way: discussions of Davis’s work kept turning into the work itself. In part, that’s because many of the conference participants were old friends and comrades who’d stood alongside Davis for decades in one struggle or another. Some were her very oldest friends. On Monday night, Bettina Aptheker, a childhood companion and fellow radical, recalled meetings with Davis and other members of the youth socialist organization they belonged to in high school. The group would gather in the basement of Aptheker’s parents’ home in Brooklyn, where, under the clothesline in the boiler room, stood a row of metal filing cabinets containing the papers of W.E.B. DuBois. “In that time of McCarthyism and House committees on un-American activities and virulent racism and anti-communism,” she said, “no university library would touch DuBois’s papers.” When DuBois departed for Ghana in 1961, “he left them with my father”—Marxist historian Herbert Aptheker, who would later serve as executor of DuBois’s estate—“until they could be properly housed in a university library.” (They are now at the University of Massachusetts-Amherst.)

Davis’s sister, Fania Davis, an activist for restorative justice—a practice that seeks to repair the harm of criminal behavior through reconciliation between the offenders and victims—recalled growing up in Birmingham, Alabama, in those days nicknamed “Bombingham” because of the dynamite explosions that targeted black residents moving into white neighborhoods. She recalled the sisters learning to read their earliest words—“colored” and “white”—and playing pranks on racist white neighbors and shopkeepers. “Just being African American growing up in the fifties and sixties in the South can, itself be radicalizing,” she said.

Attorney and law scholar Dorothy Burnham, who defended Davis against murder charges in the trial that made her world-famous, reflected on the case against her friend that followed a deadly 1970 shootout between police and the Soledad Brothers outside the Marin County courthouse. Burnham, a lifelong friend from Birmingham—whose 104-year-old mother, the scientist and civil-rights leader Dorothy Burnham, was in the audience—recalled Davis’s imprisonment and trial and how it not only cemented her fame, but profoundly shaped her activism and political philosophy for the rest of her life: the concepts of freedom and oppression, of solidarity and resistance. In prison, Burnham said, “She grew her voice. She grew her confidence.”  

Earlier in the evening, there was a jazz performance arranged by percussionist Terri Lyne Carrington, another longtime friend of Davis’s, whose setlist included a Herbie Hancock song inspired by the activist’s ordeal during her trial. Harvard music professors Vijay Iyer, a pianist, and Esperanza Spalding, a bassist, played alongside Carrington, trumpter Nicholas Payton and singer Cécile McLorin Salvant.

Again and again, conversations came back to the work. Moderating a panel titled “Revolution,” Brandon Terry, a Harvard assistant professor of African and African American studies, exhorted students to nurture their own “revolutionary practice” and to take the risks required, reminding them that Martin Luther King Jr. was only 25 when he organized the Montgomery bus boycott. “A revolution is not just armed struggle,” he said at one point, quoting from a speech by Davis. “It’s not just a period in which you can take over.…. The society you’re going to build is already reflected in the nature of the struggle you’re carrying out.” 

Film director and Spelman professor Julie Dash, who is working on a biopic of Davis, found herself brainstorming ideas from the speakers’ table. “I’m interested in redefining how African-American women are depicted in historical dramas, reimagining lives in bold and cinematic displays,” she said. “Where do we begin the story of the making of a revolutionary? How do we show the seeds of black radicalism taking root?” 

Gilmore, on stage with Kathy Boudin, a formerly incarcerated woman who codirects and cofounded the Center for Justice at Columbia University, fell into a discussion about the importance of confronting the real harm and violence committed by many those who are behind bars. “People in the movement are afraid to talk about that,” Boudin said. And they also discussed the tension between the need to invest in prison reform to improve inhumane conditions and the importance of preserving the long-term goal of abolition. 

Many who spoke noted the power and potential in the Davis archive—a vast collection of writings, speeches, photographs, and artifacts filed away over a lifetime. “I just knew I shouldn’t throw it away,” Davis said. Historian Jane Kamensky, the Schlesinger’s director, hoped the materials would allow “gatherings in far off years to make connections we have not yet thought of and ask questions we have not yet dreamed of.” Hinton curated an exhibit on Davis’s life and thought drawn from the papers, Angela Davis: Freed by the People, on view at the Schlesinger through March. “The collection was so stimulating for me and so rich,” Hinton said. “I left no box unturned.” 

Lehman College historian Robyn Spencer weighed the Davis archive against “all the violence and erasures and silence, all the things that have shielded black women’s lives from really being known.” She called the collection an act of “self-preservation and self-determination,” by an “unapologetically feminist, blues-loving Afro-wearing, left-leaning black woman. Black women are so rarely allowed universality, unboxed breath.” Her papers will provide “oxygen,” Spencer said, “to people, to movements, and ideas that definitely need to be aired.”

“The Davis papers are not a place for nostalgia,” Spencer concluded. “They demand action.” 

 

As the evening wound to a close, Hinton and Elsa Hardy, a graduate student, and Abbie Cohen, a Radcliffe staff member, shared poetry and other thoughts produced by a reading collective of incarcerated women they work with, who were granted special access to the Davis papers last summer and among the first to study it. Kaia Stern, Radcliffe practitioner-in-residence and visiting lecturer at the Harvard Graduate School of Education who cofounded the Harvard Prison Studies Project and has taught incarcerated people for years, recounted conversations with some of the women she has worked with inside: “Human connection is contraband in jail and prison,” Stern said. “We don’t say that out loud; it’s not written in our policy, but anyone who has spent time in a jail or prison know this. Sharing is punished as extortion.…Yet education in prison is transformative precisely because it is about human connections—to history, to science, to art, and to people.”

Afterward, Davis herself took the stage, interviewed by her friend and former colleague Neferti X.M. Tadiar, now professor and chair of women’s, gender, and sexuality studies at Barnard. They talked about philosophy and politics and jazz, and the power of art to fortify and inspire and understand. “Art can produce knowledge that nothing else can approximate,” Davis said. Then Tadiar asked her about hope: “When you say we’re at the beginning, I feel like you’re already formulating a way for us to generate hope.” 

Yes, Davis answered. “Historical perspectives are important.… Sometimes we’re too short-sighted; we assume that what is happening right now is what will forever be.” Her mother, Sallye Davis, had trained her to always keep in mind other possibilities, other outcomes, other openings: “That is one of the primary articles of our movement. We have to generate hope.” 

One of the last questions of the night came from a high-school student, who asked Davis how she would define success for movements like hers and newer organizations like Black Lives Matter: “What does success look like?” “It’s a very complicated question,” Davis said. More complicated, for her, than is used to seem. Partly, she said, success is figuring out how to ask the right question in a particular moment, and partly about making new mistakes, not old ones. “I don’t think there’s an ultimate point where you could say, ‘This is freedom, we’re there.’” She paraphrased Nelson Mandela on the long walk to freedom: “Each time one thinks that one has reached the top of the mountain, there is another ahead....If someone had asked me to define freedom 50 years ago, I would’ve said, ‘We have to free the black man.’ That would have been my answer. Now it’s so much more complicated.”

KEY MESSAGES

↗ International prices of wheat and maize rose in March for the third consecutive month and averaged more than 10 percent above their levels in December 2017. Prices were mainly supported by concerns over the impact of prolonged dryness in key-growing areas of the United States of America and Argentina, coupled with strong demand. International rice prices remained relatively stable.

↗ In South America, severe dry weather and strong demand underpinned the domestic prices of grains in key exporting country, Argentina, while the price of yellow maize spiked also in Brazil in March.

↗ In East Africa, in the Sudan, the strong upward surge in prices of coarse grains faltered in March but they remained at record or near-record highs, reflecting the removal of the wheat subsidies and the strong depreciation of the local currency.

↗ In Southern Africa, in Madagascar, prices of locally-produced and imported rice declined in February from the record highs reached in January with the harvesting of the minor season paddy crop and following an appreciation of the Malagasy Ariary.

KEY MESSAGES

↗ International prices of wheat and maize increased further in February, mainly supported by weather-related concerns and currency movements. Export price quotations of rice also continued to strengthen, although the increases were capped by subsiding global demand for Indica supplies.

↗ In East Africa, in the Sudan, prices of the main staples: sorghum, millet and wheat, continued to increase in February and reached record highs, underpinned by the removal of the wheat subsidies and the strong depreciation of the Sudanese Pound.

↗ In Southern Africa, in Madagascar, prices of rice hit record highs at the start of the year, as a result of tight supplies following a sharp drop in the 2017 output to a substantially below-average level and a weaker currency.

↗ In West Africa, prices of coarse grains continued to generally increase in February and reached levels above those a year earlier despite the good harvests gathered in late 2017, due to a strong demand for stock replenishment, coupled with localized production shortfalls and insecurity in some areas.

Key messages

  • International prices of wheat and maize were generally firmer in January, supported by weather-related concerns and a weaker US dollar. Export price quotations of rice also strengthened mainly buoyed by renewed Asian demand.

  • In East Africa, in the Sudan, prices of the main staples: sorghum, millet and wheat, rose sharply for the third consecutive month in January and reached record highs, underpinned by the removal of wheat subsidies and the strong depreciation of the Sudanese Pound.

  • In West Africa, prices of coarse grains were at relatively high levels in January, despite the good harvests gathered in late 2017, due to strong demand for stock replenishment and insecurity in some areas.

↗ International prices of wheat and maize remained relatively stable in November, reflecting good supply conditions, while export quotations of rice strengthened amid increased buying interest and currency movements.

↗ In East Africa, prices of cereals in November continued to decline in most countries with the ongoing 2017 harvests and were at levels around or below those a year earlier with a few exceptions. By contrast, in the Sudan, prices surged and reached record highs in some markets, mainly underpinned by the sharp depreciation of the Sudanese Pound in the parallel market.

↗ In Central America, after the sharp increases recorded in the previous month, prices of white maize eased in November as market flows returned to normal, after disruption caused by severe rains in the previous month. Good domestic availabilities kept prices at levels below those a year earlier.

Key messages

  • The benchmark US wheat price declined in October mostly because of higher supply prospects while maize quotations firmed due to rain-induced harvest delays. International rice prices strengthened in October, mainly reflecting seasonally tight Japonica and fragrant supplies.

  • In East and West Africa, cereal prices declined in October with the 2017 ongoing or recently-started harvests. However, concerns over crop outputs and civil insecurity kept prices at high levels in some countries, particularly in Ethiopia, Nigeria and South Sudan.

  • In Central America, heavy rains in October led to unseasonal increases in maize and bean prices. They remained, however, at levels well below those a year earlier as a result of adequate domestic supplies, following the overall good outputs in 2016 and the 2017 first season harvests.

Key messages

  • International prices of wheat increased in September mostly because of weather-related concerns, while maize quotations fell further on crop harvest pressure. International rice prices remained generally firm, supported by seasonally tight availabilities of fragrant rice and strong demand for higher quality Indica supplies.

  • In East Africa, prices of cereals remained at levels above those of a year earlier in most countries, particularly in Ethiopia reflecting seasonal tightness amid concerns over the impact of the Fall Armyworm infestation on the main harvest and in South Sudan mainly due to the ongoing conflict.

  • In Asia, prices of rice in Bangladesh increased again in September and reached record highs, with seasonal patterns exacerbated by the reduced 2017 main season output and concerns over the impact of the July-August floods on the second season crop, to be harvested from November.

Mary Gaunt e Casa Camilla a Bordighera

 Cache   

Dove adesso [in Bordighera (IM)] c'è questa casa, angolo con via Montello, prima del 2° conflitto mondiale, c'era Casa Camilla, dove abitò per quasi vent'anni una scrittrice australiana, Mary Gaunt.

Mary Gaunt giunse a Bordighera nel 1920 e ci rimase fino al 1940. Ma partiamo dal 1861 quando in una cittadina dell'Australia, a Chiltern, Victoria, nasce Mary Eliza Bakewell Gaunt, figlia di un giudice. Lei era la maggiore di ben otto fra sorelle e fratelli.
Dopo gli studi secondari, è stata una delle due prime donne ad iscriversi all'Università di Melbourne.

Il suo primo romanzo viene pubblicato nel 1894, "Il fidanzato di Dave".

Nello stesso anno si sposa con un dottore H.L. Miller, vedovo, che a sua volta muore nel 1900, lasciandole in eredità un piccolo reddito. Nel 1901, Mary, lascia l'Australia per stabilirsi a Londra, in un piccolo bilocale. Continua a scrivere e comincia ad avere successo e questo le permette di svolgere la sua passione, viaggiare. Ma non viaggi turistici tranquilli, tutt'altro, s'inoltra nelle foreste dell'Africa Occidentale, in quelle dell'America Centrale, nei territori della Cina più misteriosa.

Carattere combattivo e ribelle con in corpo uno spirito femminista, i suoi romanzi sono avvicenti e per niente rilassanti.

Nel 1908-1910 effettua un viaggio avventuroso nel Ghana. Nel 1913 va in Cina e vorrebbe ripercorrere il vecchio cammino delle carovane, a dorso di un mulo, attraversando la Russia Asiatica, ma dopo alcuni giorni deve desistere a seguito di scontri nelle regioni da lei scelte e dalle prime avvisaglie che porteranno all'inizio della prima guerra mondiale.
Nel 1919 trascorre alcuni mesi in Giamaica.
Nel frattempo scrive 5 diari di viaggio e sedici romanzi oltre a vari racconti.

Come tanti ospiti di Bordighera, cagionevole di salute, nel 1920 arriva nella nostra città e soggiorna inizialmente all'Hotel Parigi, sull'attuale passeggiata Argentina, poi si trasferisce, poco distante, per un breve periodo in una casa in via Nazario Sauro per stabilirsi definitivamente nella Casa Camilla, dove occupa un vasto appartamento all'ultimo piano. Chi si prenderà cura di lei, in ogni servizio, dalla salute, alla conduzione della casa, già dopo aver lasciato l'Hotel Parigi, sarà una bordigotta, Anselma, che nel 1928 darà alla luce in Casa Camilla Italo Simonazzi. Sì, proprio lui, quell'Italo che una buona parte dei bordigotti conosce, un baldo giovane, che nei prossimi giorni compirà 89 anni, ma con ancora tanta energia in corpo che potrebbe dare dei punti a tanti babanetti d'oggi.

Ritornando a Mary Gaunt, nel suo soggiorno bordigotto scriverà ancora dieci romanzi e le sue memorie. Con l'inizio della seconda guerra mondiale, a malincuore, nell'estate del 1940, lascerà Bordighera per andare in Francia, a Vence, dove la sua asma con l'aggiunta di complicazioni respiratorie la porteranno al decesso nel 1942 in una clinica di Cannes.

Nel 1980 il biografo Bronwen Hickman pubblicherà un libro sulla vita della Gaunt dove c'è un lungo capitolo su Bordighera e sulla permanenza di Mary. Nel giorno internazionale della donna nell'anno 2002, lo stato di Victoria, in Australia, nell'ambito delle celebrazioni per il riconoscimento delle conquiste delle donne dello stato australiano le ha assegnato il premio Vittoriano Honor Roll of Women. Purtroppo nelle mie ricerche, non ho trovato nessun romanzo o racconto, scritto dalla Gaunt, che sia stato tradotto in italiano.

AFRICA SCIENCE LEADERSHIP PROGRAMME (ASLP) FROM FUTURE AFRICA AT PRETORIA, SOUTH AFRICA. Deadline : 20th December 2019


Download the call

Africa Science Leadership Programme (ASLP)
Call for applicants 2020

Background
The speed and quality of the development of science capacity in Africa and the rest of the developing world depends not only on infrastructure and the technical training of people, but is intimately linked to the quality of leadership to lead change. It is widely accepted that the future of scientific development lies in enabling interdisciplinary, interconnected and often large, international teams. Training structures are, however, often not set up to prepare a next generation of scientists for the complexities that an interconnected, interdisciplinary approach to science entails. There is an internationally emerging paradigm that recognizes that the focus on individual leadership is often inadequate to address complex challenges, which require skills across many sectors and collaborative processes. The ASLP will therefore focus on developing collective leadership skills that will help fellows contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Overview of the Programme
The ASLP is an initiative of the University of Pretoria in partnership with the Global Young Academy, funded by the Robert Bosch Stiftung. It serves early- to mid-career researchers in basic and applied science, engineering, social sciences, arts and the humanities. The programme aims to grow mid-career African academics in the areas of thought leadership, team development, engagement and collaboration, with the intention of enabling them to solve the complex issues that face both Africa and the global community.

The leadership programme:

  • Identifies early- to mid-career academics who have demonstrated leadership potential and an interest in developing key leadership skills
  • Supports them to apply the acquired skills to projects that are relevant to the academic development on the continent and its impact on society
  • Creates a network of academic leaders on the continent, spanning not only across countries, but also across disciplinary boundaries
  • Advances a curriculum for academic leadership development, which can be utilised in institutions in Africa and beyond.

 

 

Programme Structure
The programme will use a highly interactive approach to training, application of skills to a leadership project, peer support, and mentorship. Fellows will attend an initial 5 day, intensive on-site programme in Pretoria, South Africa from 20-25 March 2020 (departing on the 26th). The process will involve an approach that cycles between theory, application and reflection. Participants will be challenged to work collaboratively to design initiatives that advance a new paradigm for African science.

The training will cover:

  • Core elements of collective leadership
  • Creative and systems thinking
  • Development of effective networks
  • Stakeholder engagement for change
  • Maximising the efficiency and impact of collaborative efforts
  • Advanced dialogue and communication skills
  • Effective problem solving and decision making

Following the first training week, fellows will apply their skills to a project relevant to their context and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). As described above, projects will aim to contribute to a new paradigm for Africa science. During the year, participants will continue to engage with the group and have access to professional support. The costs incurred during the workshop (training, relevant travel, meals and accommodation) will be covered by the programme. In March 2020, fellows will complete their projects and present them at the second in-person training, which will consist of 3 days.

Expected commitment
The ASLP is seeking candidates who are committed to developing leadership in Africa. The training itself requires the time commitment of the two multi-day training sessions. Furthermore, fellows will be expected to develop their leadership project and engage with other fellows for peer support.

There will be some costs, which are not covered by the programme, such as visas, vaccinations or local transport expenses, for which you may need to seek support from your local institution or fund personally. You will also be required to provide us with your personal travel insurance details as a condition of participation.

Selection criteria and application process
To be selected, applicants need to display a compelling vision of their future involvement in the development of research projects, programmes, human capacity, specific policies or societal structures. The selection process will consider individual qualities but also focus on ensuring a diversity of culture, subject background (Natural and Social Sciences, Humanities) and gender among the fellows. Where possible the programme will also attempt to create small ‘cores’ of leadership; multiple strong applicants from the same centre or country will thus be considered.

The following criteria are used as a guide for the nomination and selection of fellows:

  • A PhD degree or equivalent qualification;
  • A faculty or a continuing research position at a research institution;
  • Active in research and teaching at an African institution of higher education or research;
  • A sustained record of outstanding scientific outputs;
  • Interest in translating and communicating the results of their work for impact in society;
  • Demonstrated leadership ability in research and beyond;
  • Interest in the role of research in addressing complex issues affecting society;
  • Interest in collaborations across disciplines and sectors (e.g. industry, government, etc.);
  • Commitment to participate in all the activities of the fellowship; and
  • Intent to share what is learned in the programme with their broader networks.

All applicants have to provide two support letters by academic referees (details are provided in the application form). One of the two referees has to commit to be involved in future communications and mentorship in case of selection of the applicant into the programme. This referee will be informed about the progress of the fellow and should be willing to support the fellow if he or she requires it.
All applications will be reviewed and shortlisted by representatives of the University of Pretoria, the Global Young Academy, national young academies, and ASLP Management. The ASLP Management team will make the final selection of candidates.

Key dates:

20 December 2019 Applications close
01 February 2020 Outcome letters sent to applicants
19 March 2020 Arrival of fellows, to begin training on the 20th

Papa celebra registro de braceros indocumentados en parroquias de Italia

 Cache   

El papa Francisco celebró hoy el acuerdo al que han llegado la diócesis de San Severo en Apulia (sur de Italia) y su Ayuntamiento para registrar como residentes en algunas parroquias rurales a los braceros africanos indocumentados que trabajan durante el verano en el campo.

Papa celebra registro de braceros indocumentados en parroquias de Italia

Tras el rezo del Ángelus, el papa agradeció a la diócesis y al Ayuntamiento la firma el pasado 28 de octubre de este memorando de entendimiento, que "permitirá a los trabajadores de los llamados 'guetos de la Capitanata', en la zona de Foggia, obtener una domiciliación en las parroquias y la inscripción en el registro municipal".

Francisco alabó que este acuerdo, que no tiene precedentes en Italia, otorgará documentos de identidad y una residencia a estas personas y "les ofrecerá una nueva dignidad", además de permitirles "salir de una condición de irregularidad y explotación".

Cada verano, miles de inmigrantes procedentes de países como Nigeria, Ghana, Senegal y Gambia, pero también del este de Europa, trabajan en la recogida de cosecha en la zona de La Capitanata, en la provincia de Foggia, pero lo hacen en negro, porque son irregulares.

No pueden inscribirse como residentes en Italia ni pagar sus impuestos, ya que carecen de un domicilio fijo durante un periodo determinado de tiempo, tal y como exige la ley.

Para ellos, ser inscritos en los registros municipales como residentes en estas parroquias les permitirá poner en regla su situación, disfrutar de servicios sociales y tener la posibilidad de firmar un contrato de trabajo.

Uno de los principales impulsores del acuerdo ha sido el limosnero del papa, el cardenal Konrad Krajewski, que visitó a los inmigrantes indocumentados en esta zona el pasado septiembre, informa el portal de información vaticana Vatican News.

"Los braceros quieren pagar sus impuestos, ser reconocidos, trabajar dignamente, pero sin documentos no pueden", declaró Krajewski a los medios italianos durante su visita. EFE

ASA’s African Royale Ball Celebrates African Culture

 Cache   

Natalie Irula Opinion Editor Blue and white balloons lined the halls of the Innovation Center’s third floor last Friday as students, faculty, friends, family and everyone alike gathered to celebrate African culture.  The African Royal Ball, hosted by the African Student Association (ASA), embraced the African-American population at ESU, honoring the school’s diversity.  Doors opened at 6:30 p.m. and attendees waited until 7 p.m. for the event to begin with ticket sales going towards the newly established club.  “This is our second annual African Royal Ball,” said Sarah Owusu, an ASA member. “The event is basically to capture African culture, music, food, and dance. It’s a way for everybody to come out, dress up and socialize.” The atmosphere was electric as students came dressed in traditional ensembles and showed off their heritage flags, hanging off their backs like capes.   The green and white of the Nigerian flag and the red, yellow and green of the Ghanaian flag were hard to miss among the represented African countries that night.  The main ballroom was filled with vibrant colors, laughter, and music by African artists. “I couldn’t resist playing this event because it is like family,” said Jamal Avery, the DJ for [...]

Abstract

Background: Ischemic heart disease is increasing dramatically in the Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), owing toincreasing prevalence of risk factors, and to some characteristics of the African people that make the African population subject to the effects of major cardiovascular risk factors. The pace and direction of economic development, rates of urbanization, the changes in life expectancy, associated with different pathophysiological factors are causing an increased rate of atherosclerotic disease in these countries.

Results: In the next twenty years, the prevalence of ischemic heart disease in SSA will increase, due to increasedrisk factors,especially hypertension, diabetes, overweight and obesity, physical inactivity, tobacco use and the dyslipidemia, mainly due to an increase in urbanization. Moreover, thanks to new knowledge, it has been pointed out the difference of individual risk factors in the African population and other populations due to genetic differences. It is estimated that age-standardized approach for ischemic heart disease mortality rates will rise by 27% in African men and 25% in women by 2015 and by 70 and 74%, respectively by 2030.

Conclusion: More research is neededin Africa to provide evidence for cardiovascular prevention and treatment to mitigate the oncoming epidemic. Healthinterventions are needed for prevent or reduce the morbidity / mortality need to be addressed in both children and adults, including modifiedscore of the risk stratification, starting early therapy and aggressive, if necessary.

 

 

 

Cardiovascular disease (CVD) is a disabling growing epidemic that causes premature death and decreased quality of life. Globally, cardiovascular diseases (CVDs), which include coronary heart disease (CHD), strokes, rheumatic heart disease (RHD), cardiomyopathy, and other heart diseases, represent the leading cause of death (1).Recent population studies demonstrate an increasing burden of cardiovascular disease (CVD) and related risk factors in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA) (2). Despite evidence to suggest that CVD-related mortality rates are increasing in the region,  it is only now being recognized  as an important public health issue in sub-Saharan Africa, with coronary artery disease shown to rise in incidence in sub-Saharan Africa(3-4) . Cardiovascular diseases are the main non-communicable conditions in SSA and now 9.2% of total deaths in the African region are caused by CVD (5) , being the leading cause of death in the population over 45 years of age (6) .Cardiovascular diseases account for 7-10% of all adult medical admissions to hospitals in Africa, with heart failure contributing to 3-7% (7) .When studies on urban and rural populations were analyzed, the prevalence of CVD  was found to be higher in the urban than the rural population (8-9).

Behavioural risk factors

 The important contributors to this transition are the so-called “globalization” of dietary  habits and urbanization. Urbanization is the prime driver for nutrition transition and emergence of obesity, themetabolic syndrome and other NCDs in developing countries, especially SSA. The current average annual growth of the urban population in sub-Saharan Africa is 4.5%. Over the period 1980-2050, the urban population of Africa, as a whole, is expected to increase from 134 million to 1.264.000 million (10). The rural-to-urban migration in many of the developing countries exposes migrants to urbanized diets and lifestyle. Dietary changes associated with urbanization are related to the fact that rural dwellers tend to be more self-reliant in obtaining food and also tend to eat traditional diets that are high in grains, fruit and vegetables, and low in fat. Once they arrive in urban areas, these same people tend to rely more on external forces for sustenance, resulting in a shift from production of their own food to the purchase of processed foods (11).Major dietary changes include a large increase in the consumption of fats, particularly animal fat and added sugar and decrease in cereal and roughageintake (12).  This involves major changes of the main cardiovascular risk factors between the two areas(13) (tab.1). There was evidence of a significant increase in edible oil, indicating a major change in diet; dietary changes include a large increase in the consumption of fats, particularly animal fat and added sugar, associated to the decrease in cereal and fiber intake(14) (Fig.1). In fact, recent global figures from the World Health Organization (WHO) indicate that the prevalence of obesity is not just affecting the developed countries, but is also increasing in the developing countries, where over 115 million people suffer from obesity-related problems (15) .

Psychosocial factors

Psychosocial factors increase the number of risk factors. Some studies have shown that the number of countries registering , in recent years, a rise in the number of households owning televisions and computers is directlyproportionate to the reduction in physical activities, contributing arise in obesity in children (16-17). Alcohol and tobacco smoking are risk factors towards heart failure, ischemic stroke, heart disease, and acute myocardial infarction (18). Many studies show how alcohol and tobacco use are related to poverty and low socio-economic positions. Rural areas inhabitants are highly affected by such habits, especially compared to the other risk factors, which are  more common in urban areas(19-20) Smoking tendency is increasing among men and women in SSA, mainly in the age group between 30 and 49, with particular reference in women, increasing together with ageing (21). Furthermore, in many developing countries, psychosocial attitude toward obesity is not seen a negative factor (22-23). Mvo et al. and Puoane et al. reported that even if a large percentage of African women were overweight and obese, only a few perceived themselves so (24-25). Gambian populations were reported to be more obesity tolerant (acceptance of obese body size as normal) than African-Americans, and much more tolerant than white Americans (26) .Moreover, the double burden of under and over-nutrition presents a potentially grave situation, which should deserve more attention from both health and economic agencies engaged in development. While they continue to deal with the problems of infectious disease and under-nutrition, they are experiencing a rapid upsurge in disease risk factors, such as obesity and overweight, especially in urban settings. It is not uncommon to find under-nutrition and obesity existing side-by-side within the same country, the same community and the same household. Children in low and middle-income countries are more vulnerable to inadequate pre-natal, infant and young child nutrition. Simultaneously, they are exposed to high-fat, high-sugar, high-salt, energy-dense, micronutrient-poor foods, which is usually lower in cost but also lower in nutrient quality. These dietary patterns, in conjunction with lower levels of physical activity, result in sharp increases in childhood obesity, while undernutrition issues remain unsolved(27). Recently, the rise of obesity and cardiovascular risk factors were also seen in rural areas of some countries of the developing world. It has to be pointed out that many so-called rural areas are no longer genuinely rural: people are becoming more urbanized even in areas far from cities. This phenomenon, to some extent, is linked to the so-called "Remittance economy”. Migrant workers remittance led to a relative wealth, even in rural areas influencing some lifestyles (28).Such epidemiological transition is due, in part, to an improved longevity starting from the 1950s, so that more people are exposed to these risk factors, for long enough periods, to cause CAD. Globally considering risk factors, it has to be highlighted how the risk-factor burden experienced by blacks differs from that of whites. A recent study conducted in Ghana shows low median levels of cardiovascular risk factors and the prevalences of obesity, hypertension, dysglycaemia or diabetes, and dyslipidaemia were low too. The preponderance of moderately elevated levels of CRP was also low.However, the evidence has shown that younger patients (<55 years) were prone to a higher risk of atherosclerotic disease, which decreased ageing (29). Such difference, could be partially explained by the difficult collection of data about the actual incidence of risk factors among African population, which may lie in the complexity of conducting proper surveys in many countries, in order to perform an accurate risk stratification. In addition, women do not smoke or drink publicly, but it can assume that the women exhibit these behaviours privately in smaller proportions (30). Moreover there are some pathophysiological peculiarities in the African population, boosting an increased susceptibility to traditional cardiovascular risk factors.

Arterial hypertension

The prevalence of hypertension among urban dwellers in SSA appears to be particularly high, ranging from 8–25 per cent. At the dawn of the twentieth century, high blood pressure was virtually nonexistent among indigenous Kenyans and Ugandans. Starting from 1975, high blood pressure became established in Cameroon, Côte d'Ivoire, Democratic Republic of Congo, Ghana, Kenya, Nigeria, and Uganda (31-32). In December 2006, among the adults living in Addis Abeba, the prevalence of hypertension was 50.9% between males and 47.1% among females (33). In  Cameroon the prevalence of hypertension among people aged 15-99 years in 2004 was 20.8%, a common issue especially among men (34). In Sub-Saharan Africa, age-adjusted hypertension prevalence and age-specific rates of death from stroke are higher among urban blacks than equivalent white populations (35). Yameogo et al showed resistant hypertension is common in black Africans, most affected subjects are people over 60 years old, with limited economic income and living in rural areas (36). Numerous studies have found that such population has an excess prevalence of salt sensitivity, hypervolemia, and low plasma renin activity (37-38).

Diabetes mellitus

In 2010, an estimated 12.1 million people with diabetes mellitus (4.2% of the global estimate of 285 million) were living in sub-Saharan Africa (39). The following year, diabetes prevalence rose to 14.7 million (4.02% of the global 366 million). By year 2030, a 90% projected increase in diabetes prevalence throughout SSA, skyrocketing the number of Africans with diabetes to 28 million. (39) The incidence of diabetes mellitus in IHD remains uncertain because many studies show that, among African population, the main complication of diabetes is the micro-angiopathies compared to Western countries, where the macrovascular complication is the most important (40-41). One common pathogenic mechanism for microvascular disease, is rooted in the chemical by-products of reactions between sugars and proteins occurring over the course of days to weeks, producing irreversible protein cross-linked derivatives AGE (42). The increase in AGE produces growth inhibition and apoptosis of retinal pericytes, also inducing an overproduction of endothelial growth factors and neovascularization, and chronic inflammation too (43-44). Such actions lead to an increased microthrombosis, capillary blockage, retinal ischemia and the activation of endothelial cells, responsible of important shortcomings involving mesangial cells and stimulating glomerular fibrosis (45-46). It has been suggested that, among black population, microvascular damage is due to a different genetic predisposition that stimulates the accumulation of AGEs with all the after-effects (45-46). The strong association between diabetes mellitus and hypertension among the African population, compared to the white population, worsens dramatically microvascular damage (47-48).

Visceral Fat

The phenotype of obesity, found among several ethnic groups in developing countries, appears to be different than among the Caucasian population. Several studies reported a correlation between  visceral fat (VF) and insulin-resistance, rise of triglycerides, blood pressure and metabolic syndrome. Moreover, VF  is correlated to all the conventional cardiovascular disease risk factors and with sedentary life-styles. VF might exhibit a proinflammatory adipokine profile, playing a pivotal role in coronary atherogenesis. The expansion of adipocytes with triglyceride is thought to be trigger the increased expression and production of inflammatory cytokines - such as TNF-α, monocyte chemoattractant protein-1 (MCP-1), IL-1β, −6, and −8, plasminogen activator inhibitor-1 (PAI-1)  and decreased expression and production of leptin and vasoprotective adiponectin. Furthermore, VF might exhibit a proinflammatory adipokine profile (49-50) (Fig.2). During the International Day for evaluation of abdominal obesity, a study, related to the waist circumference data, involving 63 countries, showed highest prevalence of visceral fat in SSA and South Asians, compared with North Europeans and other Asian ethnic groups (51). In fact, it was shown that a parity of average value of waist circumference and BMI in SSA, especially Nigeria and Cameroon, visceral adiposity is significantly higher than other populations (52). High percentage of body fat with low BMI value could be partly explained by body build (trunk to leg length ratio and slender body frame), muscularity, adaptation to chronic calorie deprivation, and ethnicity (53). Some studies also shown how the populations of SSA have an accumulation of visceral fat in other tissues where usually are not deposited (ectopic fat): this feature has the potential to affect insulin sensitivity (54) . A number of studies highlighted how African populations have a lower amount of epicardial fat than the white population: such matter is of considerable interest, as the epicardial fat is now considered an important emerging independent cardio - vascular risk factor (55) (Fig.3).

The markers of body fat distribution, including waist-hip ratio, abdominal subcutaneous and visceral fat diner a heritable component, support the thesis of unique genetic variants associated with ectopic fat depots(56-57-58). Fox et al identified a single nucleotide polymorphisms(SNP) near the TRIB2 locus, which is associated with pericardial fat but not with body mass index or visceral abdominal fat (59). This is the reason why we must carry out studies in order to highlight, among the African population, the genetic variants responsible for the increase in visceral fat but not in epicardial ectopic. This would allow the identification of subgroups among the population, with BMI and amount of visceral fat compiling the standard, who are at greater risk of atherosclerotic disease (60). Other factors, such as genotype, could make the African population very susceptible to visceral fat. Among others genetics, a pivotal role is fulfilled by LOX-1, a type-II membrane protein belonging to the C-type lectin family. The LOX-1 has a crucial part in amplifying local inflammatory responses during atherosclerotic development (61) (Tab.2). The study performed by Predazzi showed a higher frequencies of two polymorphisms associated with the risk for coronary artery disease (CAD) and acute myocardial infarction (AMI), among the South-Saharan rural populations (61)   Furthermore, it must be considered the identification of other  deleterious alleles lying on CVD associated genes (GJA4, SERPINE1 and MMP3), which have a higher frequencies in African population in respect to Europeans. (62)

Communicable Diseases

Several studies reported associations between the exposure to various infectious agents and the prevalent coronary disease(63-64-65). In 1891, Huchard was the first to suggest the involvement of infectious agents in the process of atherosclerosis. Subsequently, several reports shown a relationship between the development of atherosclerosis and the presence of infectious diseases (66-67).  Several types of microbes are now also being implicated as possible causative agents in acquired CVD, and a few bacterial agents have been a research topic for several years. Organisms such as the spirochetes Borrelia burgdorferi (Lyme disease) or the Treponema pallidum (syphilis), and flagellated bacteria such as the streptococci, have well-recognized atherosclerotic potential. Interest in the role of infection in atherosclerosis was renewed with the observation that patients with coronary artery disease were more likely than matched controls to have an elevated antibody titer to Chlamydia pneumonia (68-69). Multiple complex processes are involved in the development of CVD. The increased incidence of infectious diseases has highlighted the expression of proinflammatory immune system to survive up to older ages. Although the increase of the protein Cwas not related to an increase of atherosclerotic disease, other acute-phase reactants, including fibrinogen and serum amyloid A, appear to be associated with vascular risk.This selection of a proinflammatory status is confirmed by the higher levels of the proinflammatory cytokine, including the interleukin-6 (IL6) (70). The macrophage is a critical component in the pathway to atherosclerotic inflammation. During an infectious process causes the activation of macrophages, including the  secretion of numerous factors (AGF; TGF; 1,2,4 FGF;VEGF). These substances stimulate the appearance of endothelial cells and are responsible for the creation of a systemic hypercoagulable state (71-72). In addition, mitogenic factors are released through an NF-Kβrelated mechanism, leading to smooth muscle cell proliferation and however there is an increase of monocytes through transendothelial migration at the level of the coronary (73-74). This  means that the activated macrophages stimulate bothlocal lipid accumulation and the instability that presages plaque rupture (75-76-77).

Coronary Heart Disease

IHD remains relatively uncommon in SSA despite an increasing prevalence of risk factors but its incidence is rising. A study of the 1954 have evidenced by 3,500 postmortem studies in Ghana in which only three cases of CHD were found (78). In Uganda, the National Heart Institute at Mulago alone, currently receives at least 100 patients every day with 5-8 being new cases (a total of about 36,500 patients per year with 1,825-2,920 being new cases). In 2011,heart cases increased by 20% bringing the number to 12,000 with  256 new cases registered in January alone (79). The WHO estimated that in 2005, IHD caused approximately 261 000 deaths in the African region, and current projections suggest that this number will nearly 600.000 by 2030. It is estimated that age-standardized mortality rates for IHD will rise by 27% in African men and 25% in women by 2015, and by 70 and 74%, respectively by 2030 (80) (Fig.4). The increase in IHD in Sub-Saharan Africa since the 1980s is presumably because of the increasing prevalence among African populations of the classical risk factors for CAD, include hypertension, smoking, diabetes, abdominal obesity and dyslipidemia. In addition, as a result of developments in combating communicable diseases and a decrease in childhood mortality, life expectancy in Sub-Saharan Africa has risen since the 1950 and  the number of individuals aged over 60 years is predicted to increase from 39 to 80 million by 2025 in SSA. This meaning that more people are exposed to these risk factors for long enough periods to cause CAD (81-82).

Conclusion

This review attempts to assess the prevalence, levels of risk and major risk factors for developing  cardiovascular disease in SSA.This article answered specific research questions and hypotheses on issues relating to sedentary lifestyles, nutritional behaviours, knowledge on CVDs risk factors, and especially some of the key knowledge on the genetic differences between the African population and other populations. Among the socio-economic and behavioral risk profile study variables, the review documented a high prevalence of active smoking, high consumption of edible oil and fat, an increase in physical inactivity and current active alcohol usage. The economic and social important consequences of the CVD Epidemics in the SSA will be devastating. Important gene - environment can play a crucial role in the increased risk of the IHD of the African population. The detection and management of hypertension and diabetes are still unsatisfactory in inner city areas and show variations by ethnic origin. A priority should be the development of scores for the population of Africa, also using the emerging risk factors such as Calcium Score and visceral fat and considering genetic differences. Increasing burden of obesity, the metabolic syndrome, T2DM, and CVD in SSA has created an urgent need to strategize mass health policies and intervention programs to tackle nutrition and continuing efforts to manage undernutrition. There are two major approaches to prevention: public health / community-based and clinic-based strategies with a targeted approach to high-risk patients and combinations of these. There are concerns that in comparison with communicable diseases, cardiovascular and relatively chronic diseases have a low priority in the global health agenda and that requires this additional emphasis. Finally, we must consider, in the light of the differences between races, strategies for the control of CHD and stroke cushion adopted in European countries directed mostly to white rural populations may be inappropriate for the African population. In conclusion, evaluations must be performed carefully for correct risk stratification, the timing of initiation of treatment and the goals of the therapeutic treatment to be achieved in the African population. In addition, further evaluations should be done to perform a correct public health / community-based strategies targeted at risk factors, including decrease in taxes and prices of fruits and vegetables, more playgrounds, parks, walking and bicycle tracks, provide information to parents about nutrition (particularlymothers), the change of food policy through country-specific guidelines for healthy nutrition for adults and children.

Four reasons the World Bank should engage more with civil society

 Cache   

Ces dernières années, la Banque mondiale comme le Fonds monétaire international ont sensiblement évolué dans leur prise en compte des préoccupations de la société civile et dans leur reconnaissance de sa contribution aux progrès du développement.

La Banque mondiale est l’un des principaux bailleurs de fonds du développement et, à ce titre, elle est en première ligne de la lutte pour mettre fin à la pauvreté et favoriser une prospérité partagée. Néanmoins, parce qu’elle rassemble des praticiens, des experts des politiques publiques et des militants œuvrant au plus près des populations, la société civile joue également un rôle important dans la résolution de ces défis planétaires.

Le mois dernier, le Forum de la société civile (a), organisé dans le cadre des Assemblées annuelles du Groupe de la Banque mondiale et du Fonds monétaire international, a été l’occasion de mieux comprendre et expliquer pourquoi ces deux institutions devraient collaborer davantage avec la société civile, dans les pays et à l’échelon international, afin de stimuler la mise en œuvre du programme mondial en faveur du développement.

Ce qui est important pour la société civile l’est tout autant pour la Banque mondiale

Lors du Forum, j’ai animé une table ronde entre la société civile et les administrateurs de la Banque mondiale. Les participants ont mis l’accent sur des problématiques partagées qui sont aujourd’hui au cœur des défis du développement mondial : la crise climatique, le capital humain et la jeunesse, le peu d’espace accordé à la société civile, la transparence et la responsabilisation, la fragilité, les conflits et la violence, et enfin l’inclusion.

Avec le second modérateur de la table ronde, Hervé de Villeroché — co-doyen du Conseil des administrateurs de la Banque mondiale et directeur exécutif pour la France — nous avons écouté les représentants d’organisations de la société civile venus du monde entier, du Nigéria aux Fidji, de l’Afghanistan au Honduras. De nombreux sujets ont été abordés, depuis l’aide que la Banque mondiale peut apporter au gouvernement du Ghana pour offrir une éducation de qualité et sans discrimination, jusqu’à la manière dont l’institution devrait réagir quand la société civile est réduite au silence dans la région Moyen-Orient et Afrique du Nord.

Les gouvernements, les institutions internationales et le secteur privé jouent tous un rôle essentiel dans la recherche de solutions communes à ces défis communs. Les groupes de la société civile peuvent également apporter une valeur ajoutée et contribuer à la mise en œuvre du programme mondial, même si l’espace dont ils disposent pour s’exprimer continue de se réduire dans de nombreux pays du monde.

Les quatre leviers d’action de la société civile

Alors que je recueillais les observations de très nombreuses organisations pour préparer la table ronde, j’ai été frappée par la richesse et la variété des idées de mes collègues de la société civile. Concrètement, ces organisations peuvent actionner quatre leviers au moins pour apporter un appui précieux à l’action de la Banque mondiale :

  1. Expertise : dans leur ensemble, les organisations de la société civile rassemblent certains des plus grands experts mondiaux des questions de développement. Elles peuvent ainsi fournir des données factuelles et actualisées, suggérer des domaines concrets dans lesquels il faut progresser et recommander des actions spécifiques. Toutefois, cette expertise ne pourra être mise à profit que si les représentants de la société civile sont régulièrement consultés et s’ils ont la possibilité de donner leur avis. 
  2. Responsabilisation : les groupes de la société civile peuvent demander aux gouvernements et institutions internationales de rendre des comptes sur leurs engagements et assurer la mise en œuvre efficace des recommandations et des évaluations de la Banque mondiale.
  3. Sensibilisation et communication : les organisations de la société civile peuvent faciliter la communication sur les grandes politiques du Groupe de la Banque mondiale et la rendre plus accessible aux citoyens en décodant un jargon technique complexe. Nous pouvons également renseigner a posteriori l’institution sur l’impact de ses politiques sur les populations des pays avec lesquels elle travaille.
  4. Légitimité et représentation : pour être efficaces, les organisations de la société civile doivent être associées aux discussions. Or certains organismes internationaux hésitent à les impliquer de la même manière qu’ils associent les entreprises. De telles réticences n’ont pour effet que d’entretenir les prérogatives et la défiance, donc une perte généralisée de confiance des citoyens dans leurs institutions publiques partout dans le monde, à l’image de ce que l’on observe en Amérique latine et dans les Caraïbes (a).

Comme vous pouvez le constater, il y a beaucoup d’avantages à collaborer avec les groupes de la société civile, ce qui en fait des candidats idéals à l’établissement de partenariats et d’alliances stratégiques. Alors faites-nous confiance ! Travaillez avec nous, nous serons des alliés de poids !

Et demain…

Les organisations de la société civile se félicitent de l’organisation de ce forum important et de la place ainsi accordée à la société civile par le Groupe de la Banque mondiale. Cependant, si la table ronde a été une occasion précieuse de discuter de sujets essentiels directement avec l’institution, celle-ci devrait envisager d’autres possibilités de collaboration pendant toute l’année. Pour le Groupe de la Banque mondiale comme pour la société civile, travailler ensemble est un enjeu capital pour renforcer l’efficacité de l’action aux niveaux international et national.

Welcome message

The Vasco da Gama Movement invites you to be part of the first PanEuropean meeting for Trainees and Junior Family Doctors !

We are delighted to welcome you to the first Pan European meeting for trainees and junior Family Doctors, the Vasco da Gama Movement Forum, which will be held in the city of Barcelona on 7th-8th February 2014. After organising 8 succesful European PreConferences and co-organising 2 fantastic World PreConferences ahead of the Wonca Conferences between 2005-2013, and alongside preparations for the 2014 VdGM PreConference in Lisbon in July, the Vasco da Gama Movement is ready to take the next step ! 
 
We are organizing the VdGM Forum, a scientific conference rich in contents, under the title “One Strong Voice for the Family Doctors of the 21st Century”. The programme will be focused on the topics of the Future of Family Medicine, Emergency Medicine and Out-of-Hours Services, Career Development, Research Skills and Emerging Technologies.
 
Prior to the VdGM Forum, a vocational exchange will be organized for selected participants, who will have the opportunity to observe GP/FM practices (offices) in Barcelona and learn more about the national organisation of primary care.
 
We strongly believe that the progress of our movement depends on our colleagues, on whether they share our cause, and on the continuity of our platform; a platform in which members meet regularly and they have the chance to establish and develop good professional relationships, which are essential for launching exciting and aspirational new projects. Alongside trainees and newly qualified (5 years) General Practitioners / Family Doctors, we also welcome senior GP/FD, other specialities but also patients and undergraduate medical students.
 
For this very reason we are working with great enthusiasm so that you can enjoy a unique scientific and cultural programme.
 
We warmly invite you all to join us for an amazing conference; we are looking forward to meeting you in Barcelona!

Lorraine Cleaver

(UK)

Lorraine Cleaver is a Scottish wife and mother who has petitioned the Scottish Parliament for improved Thyroid diagnosis and treatment. The petition has benefited from the involvement of the Minister for Public Health and is progressing well. After her thyroid was removed in 2006 for Graves disease, Lorraine's health declined by an alarming degree, despite being under the care of an Endocrinologist. Her GP was desperate to help but the system of deferring to the consultant and guidelines made this almost impossible. She recovered her health by working alongside her GP but outwith the established Endocrinology model. Gathering evidence for the petition reinforced that the treatment model for chronic diseases is failing many thousands of patients who go on to develop worsening health and a reliance on polypharmacy. She is optimistic that putting patients at the center of their treatment will help to change this, improving patient's health and enabling GP's to have more autonomy in the patient's care.

Preconference: #DesignThinking for Primary Care Workshop

Design Thinking is about believing we can make a difference, and having an intentional process in order to get to new, relevant solutions that create positive impact.
 
  • It’s human-centred: it begins from deep empathy and understanding of needs and motivations of people
  • It’s collaborative: several great minds are always stronger when solving a challenge than just one.
  • It’s optimistic: Design Thinking is the fundamental belief that we all can create change.
  • It’s experimental: it gives you permission to fail and to learn from your mistakes, because you come up with new ideas, get feedback on them, then iterate.
 
It has five phases that help navigate the development from identifying a design challenge to finding and building a solution.
 
The Five Phases of the Design Thinking Process
 
The Vasco da Gama Movement is developing a fantastic workshop that will enable you to learn firsthand how Design Thinking can be used to innovate in health and healthcare. During this workshop, teams will work together to explore and create solutions to real healthcare challenges.
 
Design Thinking #1
 
The participants will work on problems identified and will use the Design Thinking methods to gain a deep understanding of the problem and develop innovative ‘human-centred’ solutions (ie. solutions that truly meet the needs of users). Methods will include user-interviews, observation, brainstorming and rapid prototyping, with the aim of creating solutions that combine human desirability and usability with business viability and technological feasibility.
 
The workshop will take place in Barcelona just before the 1st #VdGMForum, on 7th February from 9am to 2.30pm. There is only a limited number of places for this workshop. The participation in the workshop will be free of charge. Medical students, other healthcare professionals, people from other professional background and patients are welcome to apply for a place.
 
The deadline for applications is Tuesday 7th January.
 
Design Thinking #2
 

Preconference: Satellite Meetup with the Health 2.0 Barcelona

Are you a technology enthusiast? Do you believe in the potential of technology that will lead to the Creative Destruction of Medicine? We are delighted to invite you to the Preconference Satellite Meetup with the Health 2.0 Barcelona!

Health2.0Bcn is an interdisciplinary group where professionals of the health sector join technology lovers with the aim to improve healthcare through the use of new technologies. Health2.0 wants to encourage projects related to health, developed by startups or individuals, offering them visibility, while inspiring others

This Preconference Satellite Meetup will be held on Thursday 6th February 2014 at 7pm, just a day before the #VdGMForum. A map to the location is available here. The participation is completely free, but we kindly ask you to register here in order to manage the resources that we need for this meetup.

 

The Programme includes:

 

  1. Presentation of the VdGM
  2. Introduction and overview of the latest trends in health2.0 by health2.0Bcn team
  3. Round table of local GPs who will tell us about the use of 2.0 technologies in their day to day, what's available out there and what's missing. 
 
Primary care represents a big market segment with special needs, that are not necessarily covered yet by the new technologies. Let's try to fill that gap. 
 
The confirmed family doctor panelists are:
  • Dra Mireia Sans 
  • Dra Dolors Ruiz  
  • Dra Adriana Bataller 
  • Dr Miguel Angel Mayer 
  • Dr Monica Moro 
  • Dr Jordi Serrano
 
We hope that this session will be a good occasion for startups to size the opportunities and needs of the primary care, and for primary care doctors to share their experience and best practices in order to spread the benefits of those technologies amongst their GP colleagues.

 

We would like to thank the organizers Aline Noizet, Frederic Llordachs, Jordi Serrano Pons and Sophie Park for their enthusiastic support and for making this meeting happen.

When Harry met his ancestors, on the way to the law courts: Volume I – Amber Melville-Brown

Meghan Markle, Duchess of Sussex, is suing the newspapers. And so is her husband, Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex. As a couple, they are united it seems in a distaste for the British tabloid media, elements of which they accuse of carrying on a vindictive and bullying campaign against them. There is a lot to be said for calling the press to account when they behave irresponsibly; and there is a lot to be said about it.

Ledy Simarmata, ‘Next Generation Leader’ Pertama dari Indonesia

 Cache   
Sejak 2013, McCain Institute yang berbasis di AS memilih para profesional dari seluruh dunia untuk menjadi ‘Next Generation Leaders’ atau calon-calon pemimpin masa depan. Dan tahun ini, untuk pertama kalinya dalam tujuh tahun ada seorang wakil dari Indonesia. Sosok tersebut adalah Ledy Simarmata, seorang profesional yang selama tujuh tahun belakangan bekerja dalam bidang pertambangan di Indonesia. Dia terpilih setelah mendaftarkan diri dan melalui proses seleksi, termasuk menulis essay dan wawancara dalam bahasa Inggris. Kepada VOA, Ledy mengaku sangat bersyukur mengingat programnya sangat selektif. “Tingkat penerimaannya cukup kecil, cukup rendah, less than 1%. Karena tahun ini ada sekitar 900 pelamar kalau tidak salah, dari berbagai negara tentunya, dan kami tahun ini (yang terpilih) delapan orang.” “Leaders” lain yang terpilih tahun ini berasal dari Myanmar, Lithuania, Ghana, India, Guatemala, Lesotho dan Filipina. McCain Institute adalah sebuah organisasi yang berbasis di Washington DC dan Arizona yang didirikan pada 2012 oleh mendiang John McCain, seorang mantan politisi dan senator terkenal AS. Program ‘Next Generation Leaders’ membawa Ledy ke kota Tempe di negara bagian Arizona untuk menjadi seorang fellow di Arizona State University mulai Oktober hingga Mei tahun depan. Dia ditugaskan di Decision Theater Network,  pusat riset yang melakukan kajian kebijakan publik. “Jadi bagaimana kita bisa membuat keputusan yang lebih akurat dan lebih tepat tentunya dalam konteks membuat keputusan sebagai pengambil kebijakan publik dengan memaksimalkan visualisasi data, teknologi dan fitur-fitur,” jelasnya. Sebelumnya, mantan penyiar berita TV ini juga menghabiskan waktu selama beberapa minggu di Washington DC untuk menjalani pelatihan kepemimpinan serta bertemu dengan sejumlah pemimpin serta tokoh penting di AS. “Yang menarik kami bertemu dengan anggota kongres di Capitol Hill. Saya pribadi belum pernah ke Capitol Hill sampai bertemu dengan anggota kongres. Jadi buat saya itu luar biasa gitu. Jadi kita betul-betul dipertemukan dengan orang orang yang bisa memberi kita insights apa sih tantangan menjadi seorang pemimpin.” Pengalaman tak terlupakan lain bagi Ledy adalah ketika bertemu dengan isteri John McCain, Cindy McCain, yang kini menjabat sebagai Ketua Dewan di institute tersebut. “Saya mengagumi visi yang beliau share dari suaminya dan saya bisa melihat beliau punya komitmen yang besar dan kuat untuk tujuan-tujuan yang diyakini oleh McCain Institute.” Dan salah satu tujuan utama organisasi itu adalah memilih, melatih, mendukung, dan memperkuat pertumbuhan para pemimpin global generasi mendatang. Sejak 2013, Next Generation Leaders telah melatih 70 calon pemimpin dari lebih dari 50 negara. Ledy, yang juga pernah menerima beasiswa Chevening dari pemerintah Inggris, ini berharap dia bisa membantu membuka jalan bagi terpilihnya “leaders” lain dari Indonesia. Dia pun memberikan tips untuk menyusun aplikasi yang baik. “Hal yang paling penting dari aplikasi ketika mendaftar ke program Next Generation Leaders adalah apa sih menjadi rencana Anda ke depan, what is your Leadership Action Plan dan bagaimana McCain Institute, bagaimana pengalaman di Amerika Serikat menurut Anda bisa membantu mencapai itu." "So read read and read and get a lot of information,” pungkasnya menutup wawancara dengan VOA. (vm)
          

No Big Brother Ghana - Multichoice denies scam launch

 Cache   

Multichoice Ghana, operators of pay television services DStv and GOtv has announced that it has no plans to introduce a version of its popular Big Brother television show in Ghana.

It has therefore advised the public to be wary of any scams related to the launch of Big Brother in Ghana.

Multichoice in a statement said it had taken note of "fake news" announcing a "Big Brother Ghana" on various social media platforms.

"MultiChoice Ghana has taken note of an image making the rounds on various social media platforms depicting a Big Brother Ghana' logo. Please be aware that this is fake news as MultiChoice has no plans to launch a Big Brother Ghana' edition," the statement said.

"Members of the public are advised to be wary of any scams related to this as there are no plans to launch a Ghana edition of Big Brother. MultiChoice Ghana will duly keep our customers informed of any major announcements via our official DStv & GOtv communications channels".

About Big Brother

Big Brother is a Dutch reality competition television franchise created by John de Mol Jr., first broadcast in the Netherlands in 1999, and subsequently syndicated internationally.

The show features contestants called "housemates" or "House Guests" who live together in a specially constructed house that is isolated from the outside world.

The name is inspired by Big Brother from George Orwell's novel Nineteen Eighty-Four, and the housemates are continuously monitored during their stay in the house by live television cameras as well as personal audio microphones. Throughout the course of the competition, they are voted out (usually on a weekly basis) until only one remains and wins the cash prize.

As of 21 September 2019, there have been 448 seasons of Big Brother in over 54 franchise countries and regions. English-language editions of the program are often referred to by its initials "BB".[

The title of many Spanish-language editions of the program is translated as Gran Hermano (GH).

Premise

At regular intervals, the housemates privately nominate a number of their fellow housemates whom they wish to be evicted from the house.

The housemates with the most nominations are then announced, and viewers are given the opportunity to vote via telephone for the nominee they wish to be evicted or saved from eviction. The last person remaining is declared the winner.

Some more recent editions have since included additional methods of voting, such as voting through social media and smartphone applications. Occasionally, non-standard votes occur, where two houseguests are evicted at once or no one is voted out.

In the earlier series of Big Brother, there were 10 contestants with evictions every two weeks. However, the UK version introduced a larger number of contestants with weekly evictions. Most versions of Big Brother follow the weekly eviction format, broadcast over approximately three months for 16 contestants.

The contestants are required to do housework and are assigned tasks by the producers of the show (who communicate with the housemates via the omnipresent authority figure known to them only as "Big Brother").

The tasks are designed to test their teamwork abilities and community spirit. In some countries, the housemates' shopping budget or weekly allowance (to buy food and other essentials) depends on the outcome of assigned tasks.
