          Best Ways to Watch Cricket Online in USA      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Here are the best options to watch cricket online in the US. Read on to learn what each provider offers. Don't miss another game.

HOTSTAR US

Hotstar is a video streaming app which streams Indian TV shows, movies, and live sports. They feature content in eight Indian languages: Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Marathi, Bengali, Punjabi, Kannada and Malayalam.

When it comes to sports, Hotstar features live telecasts of kabaddi, badminton, hockey, and most importantly, cricket.

The good thing about Hotstar is that it has exclusive broadcasting rights for the Indian Premier League (IPL). This means that you can only watch live broadcasts of the IPL games on Hotstar. It also streams the IPL in a variety of languages, such as Tamil, Telugu, Bengali, Kannada, Hindi and English.

However, if you're looking for cricket matches outside India or other international cricket tournaments, then consider Willow TV.

Willow TV

The Willow TV channel is a live 24/7 cricket channel in the USA and Canada. It has exclusive broadcasting rights to games by the International Cricket Council (ICC), The Board of Control for Cricket in India, Cricket Australia, Cricket South Africa, New Zealand Cricket, West Indies Cricket Board, Sri Lanka Cricket Board, Bangladesh Cricket Board, Cricket Zimbabwe and others.

Willow works together with satellite, cable, and IPTV providers to help feature their channel. Currently their partners include DISH Network, DIRECTV, Cablevision, Comcast, Time Warner Cable, Verizon FIOS, Charter Communications, Bright House Networks and Cox.

If you just want to watch cricket, Willow TV offers a direct, standalone subscription too. You can go directly to their website to subscribe. To access the channel, just download the app for your smartphone or tablet, or log on to the site from any web browser.

Sling TV

Sling TV is an online streaming provider which features TV series and shows. Their most popular bundles are their English "Blue" and "Orange" packages, but they also offer Indian packages which feature shows in Hindi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Punjabi, Urdu, Bangla and Bengali.

Sling TV also offers a Willow TV subscription. The package has two channels - Willow TV HD and Willow XTRA. Both offer cricket content, featuring both live and recorded games.

The best part about Sling TV is that you won't have to choose a main subscription and add Willow TV after. They offer just the Willow TV package as a subscription by itself. You can subscribe per month, per six months, or annually.

ESPN+

ESPN+ is a new streaming service by ESPN. To be clear - it isn't a standalone app. It's currently inside the existing ESPN app, which can be installed on Android smartphones, Android TV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Fire TVs, Fire Tablets, iPhones, and iPads. It also works on web browsers, so you can access it from any computer.

In terms of content, ESPN+ offers live games, studio series, and original programs. You can find live broadcasts of soccer, boxing, golf, tennis, rugby, and several college sports. They also stream live cricket games, featuring matches across Test, ODI, and T20 formats from New Zealand Cricket and Cricket Ireland.

You can choose to subscribe to ESPN+ monthly or annually.

Bottom Line

When it comes to streaming live cricket games online, there aren't many options in the U.S. If you're a fan of local games in India, then Hotstar is the best choice. They have exclusive rights to broadcast the IPL, which is great for those who follow the Indian cricket league.

If you're looking for international games, however, then consider Willow TV. You can subscribe directly to Willow TV or through their affiliates (such as Sling TV). Willow TV has the rights to most of the international cricket boards, which means you'll have access to most of the international game broadcasts.

ESPN+ is a relatively new service, and they do feature some cricket games, but they're not a dedicated cricket channel like Willow TV or Hotstar. It can be a good choice if you're also interested in other games, such as rugby or golf. However, if you're purely interested in cricket, it's better to look at Willow TV or Hotstar instead.

          Limerick #101537 on G15, G-15... by psheil      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Developing countries come here
For support in a technical sphere,
Because fair arbitration
Can help any nation
To grow without heartache or fear.

The G-15 is an informal forum set up to provide input for other international groups, such as the World Trade Organization (WTO) and the G7. Established in 1989, the group focuses on cooperation among developing countries in the areas of investment, trade, and technology. The initial 15 country membership has since expanded, but the original name has been retained. The current member countries (as of 2017) are: Algeria, Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Egypt, India, Indonesia, Iran, Jamaica, Kenya, Malaysia, Mexico, Nigeria, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Venezuela, and Zimbabwe.

          Termitaria vs. mistletoe: Effects on soil properties and plant structure in a semi-arid savanna      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

Publication date: August 2018

Source: Acta Oecologica, Volume 91

Abstract

Termite mounds by creating patches of increased resource availability (e.g. water and nutrients) are a major source of spatial heterogeneity in savannas. Likewise, mistletoes via input of nutrient-rich litter alter nutrient and water availability increasing environmental heterogeneity in semi-arid savanna. Despite this recognition, the influence of termitaria and mistletoe on soil properties and plant community have not been investigated together. We established eight 100 m2 plots each on termitaria, under mistletoe-infected trees and in the surrounding savanna and examined the soil properties and the structure of Securinega virosa (Euphorbiaceae) and Euclea divinorum (Ebenaceae) in semi-arid savanna, southwest Zimbabwe. Soil properties significantly differed among the sampling sites (p = 0.001) with soils of increasing clay, soil moisture, pH and phosphorus, calcium and ammonium concentrations occurring on termite mounds. Soils under mistletoe-infected trees were associated with silt, organic matter, sodium, potassium, magnesium and nitrate and the surrounding savanna was associated with soils of increasing sand content. Plant structure also differed significantly between sites with greater basal area of both S. virosa and E. divinorum on termitaria relative to mistletoe-infected trees and the surrounding savanna. However, the stem density of S. virosa was greater under mistletoe-infected trees than on termitaria and in the surrounding savanna. Plant structural variables of individuals of the same species were affected by different soil properties across treatments. The major patterns showed that plant structure was influenced positively by soil moisture and nitrate and negatively by phosphorus on termitaria; positively by clay, soil moisture and ammonium and negatively by potassium under mistletoe-infected trees; and by phosphorus and calcium in the surrounding savanna. These findings show that soil properties, plant structure and their relationships differ between termitaria, mistletoe-infected trees and surrounding savanna, and these differences are suggested to increase heterogeneity in soil resources availability and vegetation structure in semi-arid savanna.

Restored Republic via a GCR as of July 11, 2018

Compiled 11 July 12:18 am EST by Judy Byington, MSW, LCSW, ret. CEO, Child Abuse Recovery, Author, “Twenty Two Faces,” Byington’s Before It’s News articles on an international Cabal Vatican-organized Child Exploitation Ring: http://beforeitsnews.com/contributor/pages/243/590/stories.html

The below is a summary of information from the Internet. It would be up to the individual reader to decide whether or not it is valid. Patience is a Virtue. Having Virtue is a sign of a good moral being. Good moral beings have the power to overcome evil and change the world.

Judy Note: After reviewing the below it is my opinion that the RV was likely to be released before our present Cabal fiat financial system collapsed, though there appeared to be a temporary blackout on intel on it. Rumor was that the GCR (aka HSBC Zim redemptions, along with private exchanges) began yesterday July 9 in Hong Kong and such was working it’s way to the US. Some claimed they had received their monies for Humanitarian Projects.

For security reasons all Zim holders (as well as private exchanges) might be completed before the general public was allowed to exchange. Public exchanges were said scheduled to begin Aug. 1, a day after Zimbabwe elections on July 30 and after the gold standard GCR was expected to be formally announced.

In Aug. we might look for Clinton Server content release, along with the beginning of mass arrests; Sept. may find the unsealing of Indictments, Grand Juries, official government disclosure on 9/11 and more mass arrests. If the gold-standard announcement was not already made, it could be announced in Oct., along with prosecutions on elites, with charges that included Treason. Hopefully Nov. would see children rescued from international trafficking rings, US Troops coming home and a Military Parade on Election Day Nov. 11 designed to be used as a cover for a Washington DC Lockdown because of Tribunals on crooked politicians. The Trials should wrap up in Dec. 2018.

A. A Possible Timeline:

Fulford: “According to Pentagon sources the asset-backed Quantum Financial System is ready, but awaits the Trump-Putin Summit, the Global Financial Reset, mass arrests and geo-political resolutions.”

Wed, Thurs. July 11, 12: Trump scheduled to meet with NATO.

Thurs. July 12 - The Central Bank of Iraq was having mandatory training for all private banks that concluded on Wed. July 12.

Fri. July 13: Trump scheduled to meet with British PM Theresa May and the Queen where all assets stolen by the Crown and other Cabal would be returned to the people.

Mon. July 16: Trump and Putin Summit in Finland.

Monday July 30: Zimbabwe’s election, after which an announcement of their Gold-Standard and subsequent RV, which was expected to be a lynchpin for the U.S. to announce their Gold-Standard and officially set off the Global Currency Reset, plus implementation of GESARA law. Zimbabwe Bank Memo Effective 9th July 2018

Aug, Sept, Oct, Fulford, Pentagon: “There would be a new wave of mass arrests in August, official government disclosure about 9/11 in September, and a major economic announcement in October.”

B. Timeline According to Q:

Aug: The Great Awakening: Clinton Server contents released to public

Sept: Indictments unsealed, Grand Juries formed, along with mass arrests

Oct: Sessions starts prosecutions, with charges of Treason at end of month

Nov: Military Parade Cover for Washington DC Lockdown and Tribunals, US Troops come home, Trafficked Children rescue.

Dec: Trials wrap up

C. July 10 2018 The Big Call, Bruce: Thebigcall.net: 712-770-4016 pin123456#

1. In Iraq the ATM machines with the lower denominations were being used with a Dinar to US Dollar rate of $6 to $7.

2. Dr. Shabbi has said that the Dinar could support a rate of up to $16.00.

3. Abadi has officially been welcomed as the PM of Iraq.

4. More than 142 and 164Traunches of $900 Quadrillion each have moved around the world, been confirmed and all but a few have been distributed. The last eight sets of two were distributed this morning to various paymasters. All Traunches should be complete by 2 am EST tomorrow morning July 11.

5. There was a possibility of getting started this afternoon July 10, but there were security concerns. They addressed over 80% of those concerns by this afternoon and 100% should be completed tonight sometime, July 10.

6. For our own security the NSA would be tracking us back and forth from our redemption center appointments via our cellphones.

7. The rates on the screens were blinking until 2 pm EST today July 10, when the rates became solid.

D. July 10 2018 2:19 pm EST Intel Alert: Operation Disclosure: GCR/RV Intel Alert for July 10, 2018 Operation Disclosure (Disclaimer: The following is an overview of the current situation based on rumors/leaks from several sources which may or may not be truthful or accurate.)

1. All nations were being reformed from the inside to support GESARA law.

2. Currently the Alliance was in the process of exposing the Cabal even further, which would result in a temporary blackout of intel.

3. According to sources, there was motive to release the RV before the old Cabal financial system went into a downward spiral, for a crash of the current financial system would cause mass civil unrest. Preventing such was the Alliance's main priority.

4. Direct deposits have been scheduled for QFS accounts of currency holders. This was being done in order for currency holders to quickly access funds once the RV event officially began.

5. The method of exchanging/redeeming your currencies remained unclear - bank appointment, or quantum mechanics? Be prepared for anything.

E. July 9 2018 11:49 pm EST, Zap: "Wonderful Week" - ZAP Update - The Office of POOFness - 7.9.18

1. The release is done for us. Tomorrow July 10 lawyers begin the primary wires out to recipients – one of which is us.

2. The Trust is still getting the new systems fixed up.

3. This is now measured in days and hours, not weeks and months.

4. Soon we should be hearing RV news that is really good.

Top Brexit official resigned, Boris Johnson resigned right after the top Brexit official. The Brexit is in trouble and it might not happen. China orders its news agencies not to use aggressive language against Trump. The Fed has really turned up the collapse plan. They are now predicting inflation is going to hit. The Fed has now removed its data, says the yield curve is not important and the MSM at the same time is pushing how the economy is getting worse and we will see a recession coming very soon.

SADC Develops Regional Strategy on Women, Peace and Security
10 JUL, 2018 - 00:07
Nyarai Kampilipili Correspondent

Southern Africa has developed a regional framework that will serve as a guide on mainstreaming gender into the regional peace and security systems and processes.

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) Secretariat a recent meeting of senior officials responsible for gender and women affairs in the region that the strategy will be launched at the SADC Summit of Heads of State and Government scheduled for August 17-18 in Windhoek, Namibia.

The SADC Regional Strategy on Women, Peace and Security (2018-2022) aims to address challenges experienced by women and children by ensuring that they fully participate in peace and security activities, programmes and projects in the region.

The strategy was first presented to senior officials at their meeting in Ezulwini, the Kingdom of Eswatini, in 2017 and was further presented to the Ministerial Council of the Organ for approval.

The development of the strategy involved various stakeholders who included gender and security experts from all the SADC member states.

The strategy and its accompanying action plan are to be implemented from 2018-2022 and member states have been urged to develop national action plans and mobilise resources to implement proposed activities at national level.

Southern Africa is making significant progress towards promoting gender equality and equity in the region. However, there is need to maintain the momentum and push forward the regional gender agenda, particularly in issues to do with peace and security.

This requires intensification of regional efforts to mainstream gender into peacebuilding and conflict resolution processes if sustainable peace is to be achieved.

Although progress is being made in the development of strategies that mainstream gender in peace and security matters, the number of women and children being affected by conflict remains high.

High-ranking women in the security sector in SADC member states remains low.

For example, only three SADC member states have had women ministers of defence in the period 2009-2018. These are Botswana, Madagascar and South Africa.

South Africa remains the only country in SADC with a woman Minister of Defence who has held the position since 2012.

According to a 2015 UN Women report, women constitute fewer than 10 percent of peace negotiators globally, and only three percent of signatories to peace agreements.

In this regard, there is need to include more women in peace processes so that their issues are mainstreamed into the negotiations.

Other key issues being discussed by the SADC senior officials responsible for gender and women affairs during the annual meeting include the need to expedite processes towards combating trafficking in persons; accelerating efforts towards achieving 50:50 representation in politics and decision-making and the need for member states that have not signed the Agreement Amending the SADC Protocol on Gender and Development to do so.

To date only Angola, Botswana, Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, Madagascar, Mozambique, eSwatini, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe have signed the agreement amending the protocol while Namibia and South Africa have indicated that they will sign during the SADC Summit in Namibia.

The senior officials responsible for gender and women affairs meet prior to the annual meeting of SADC ministers responsible for gender and women affairs.

The ministers meeting will discuss the SADC regional gender programme and share progress towards the implementation of gender commitments made by the countries.

A total of 11 SADC member states – Angola, Botswana, DRC, Lesotho, Malawi, Namibia, Tanzania, South Africa, Seychelles, Zambia and Zimbabwe – are attended the meeting, which ran from July 3-5 in Johannesburg.

EDITORIAL COMMENT: Justice Chigumba Nobody’s Trojan Horse
10 JUL, 2018 - 00:07
Zimbabwe Herald

Elsewhere in this issue we carry an interesting reminder from one of our columnists regarding the ongoing opposition attacks on the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC) and its chairperson, Justice Priscilla Chigumba.

In the analysis, the writer sheds light on how the MDC Alliance appears disillusioned that ZEC has not advanced the political outfit’s interests.

Mr Nelson Chamisa, the MDC Alliance leader and presidential candidate in the forthcoming harmonised elections, recently voiced this disappointment when he revealed that he was part of the process of selecting ZEC commissioners but was now unhappy with their conduct.

(Not that ZEC has broken any laws: it has actually played by the book.)

The MDC Alliance has been trying to lobby and pressure the independent constitutional body into making decisions that are patently illegal and have the effect of undermining its credibility in the long-term.

Two recent cases pertain to demands by the opposition to have the voters’ roll printed with pictures as well as general access to the printing, storage and distribution of ballot papers.

In the former case, ZEC has clarified that the details it captured on the roll to enable voter identification were enough and that the register was in an analysable format — one of the original demands of the opposition.

Additionally, ZEC explained that it was aware of legal minefields regarding identity theft and usage of the data for purposes other than those for which it was collected.

We note that after making noises on the availability of the voters’ roll, which the opposition got, the Alliance has not proffered any significant critique of the data, the format, presentation or any technical area.

In fact, the opposition has quickly forgotten about the voters’ roll and instead latched on to the issue of ballot paper printing and storage.

The opposition wants access to the process and its demands sound like they want to direct the process themselves, which is not only illegal but irrational.

ZEC has both the constitutional mandate and the technical knowledge of the process.

On the other hand, the MDC Alliance cannot, and shall not be allowed to play referee in a process in which it should be a player.

If one were to consider that the MDC Alliance, which believes in voodoo phenomena such as mutating ballots, it stands to reason that it would be a waste of time engaging such clowns.

In all this, it is becoming evident that the MDC Alliance, in its various guises, was looking for the proverbial Trojan Horse that would rig the elections in their favour.

In their calculations, a High Court judge who had made rulings that displeased the ruling party would be a fantastic addition to their war chest.

The judge, who in this case was Justice Chigumba, would be an asset.

On the other hand, a commissioner with opposition links such as Dr Qhubani Moyo, considered close to MDC Alliance principal Professor Welshman Ncube, would be an added advantage.

Unfortunately for the opposition, the two commissioners have served ZEC with integrity and have not bent the law to serve partisan interests. It is in fact the ruling Zanu-PF which should be complaining about how ZEC could even allow the opposition to view the printing of ballot papers when legally it should be the sole custodian of the entire process and only entertain reasonable requests. So far ZEC has refused to be anyone’s Trojan Horse.

The anger by the MDC Alliance should be understood in this context. Staring evident defeat, they thought they could use ZEC insiders to rig the elections. They feel let down that Dr Moyo and Justice Chigumba have refused to be used, hence the spirited attacks on them and efforts to use mob psychology through demonstrations to intimidate the two commissioners. It’s pathetic when one considers the number of lawyers, senior lawyers at that, stooping so low.

Opposition Impairing ZEC‘s Autonomy
 10 JUL, 2018 - 00:07
Nick Mangwana
View From the Diaspora
Zimbabwe Herald

There are two sides to Zimbabwe’s elections. There is a side that wants to portray the country as peaceful and going through a democratic process in which the will of the people will prevail and be respected. They have done a lot and beyond paint the country as stable and democratic.

They have substantially stabilised the country and sucked in all forms of provocation from the other side. The dividend they want is foreign direct investment, international goodwill and acceptance of the country fully into the international fold and community of nations.

On the other side there are entities doing their best to portray the country as unstable, a conflict zone and a bad destination for foreign capital. Their desired dividend is poor economic performance, more suffering for the population resulting in citizenry disaffection. The final dividend they want is a protest vote which will enhance their chances at the polls. This is where the country is right now. One side wants what will benefit the citizens and country at large. The other side wants that which will benefit its very narrow and parochial interests to the detriment of everyone else. Zimbabweans are seeing through all this. One can say this is all politics but there is something that we should as a nation say no to. We can’t allow perennial malcontents to undermine national institutions. We should punish them at the polls.

The MDC Alliance is deliberately trying to subvert the Zimbabwe Electoral Commission (ZEC)’s ability to smoothly manage our elections. ZEC has tried to establish a well-articulated and predictable process using both the legal framework and engagement as the modus operandi. But the opposition is raising points of disputation at all points of the process.

As part of electoral reform, the Electoral Act was amended and highly modernised and made fit for the purpose. The Act says that ZEC should tell the candidates and parties participating in elections who is printing ballot papers and where they are being printed. That has not only been done; the candidates and parties have been allowed to witness the printing process.

But that has been deemed not good enough. We now hear demands that some want to supervise the printing of the ballots themselves; they want to guard the papers and drive them around distributing them to their centres. That’s a highly irregular demand which subverts a very clear and understood election management process. Our elections should be run by an independent body which is not interfered with. Why is the MDC-Alliance refusing to be guided by the law?

The Electoral Act is a result of comprise and negotiations between the parties in Parliament . Mr Innocent Gonese for the MDC-T brought their written proposals to Parliament and most of what they are objecting to is what they asked for. When one talks of electoral reforms, the main thing that needed to be reformed was the Act that administers elections. A lot went into doing that, but that process is now being rendered pointless by the effort to manage the election outside the ambit of the agreed law.

One of the key benchmarks for Zimbabwe’s democratisation was the new Constitution. The issue of choice of who takes part in the choice of the independent commissioners was a big part of it. The law is very clear on the process of that choice. So whoever is chosen has to be chosen on merit. The choice is done by Parliament.

There is an advertisement in the papers and potential commissioners apply and are shortlisted and publicly interviewed. This was done in the current case. Mr Chamisa co-chaired that committee. He now turns around and excoriates Justice Chigumba.

Maybe let’s rewind the clock and explain how Mr Chamisa is really disappointed in Justice Chigumba. In September 2016 members of the opposition applied to have a demonstration. Police banned demonstrations in Harare for two weeks. Justice Chigumba presided over the case and her judgment was in favour of some alliance which that time was known as NERA. This made former president Robert Mugabe livid. He uttered a massive diatribe against Justice Chigumba which was almost a threat.

To Mr Chamisa and his allies there was now a rift between the establishment and Justice Chigumba. But what Justice Chigumba had done was interpret the law. She had no dog in the dispute, but that did not stop Mr Chamisa thinking they had an ace in the pack at ZEC.

Her throwing out Evan Mawarire’s case also made them think they had an ally. So by recommending Justice Chigumba they were trying to rig the system in their favour. Their anger and bitterness is that Justice Chigumba is a fair judge. She favours nobody but is guided by the law.

The other person who they are disappointed by is Dr Qhubani Moyo. This man worked for the opposition and was very close to Welshman Ncube, one of the potential Alliance vice presidents. When he was recruited into ZEC it was a shock for many. It appeared the opposition had infiltrated the election management body.

To them they had a joker in ZEC. He has proved to be nothing but a very professional and impartial arbiter who when pushed he pushes back. This is what Mr Chamisa means when he says that “we are beginning to doubt these guys’ CV’s”) what he is saying is that they had done their profiling in order to rig the commission. Their profiling is not yielding the skewed results they wanted and they are livid and panicking.

So what we have is a Parliament that reformed the electoral laws in Zimbabwe, a Parliament that recruited ZEC commissioners and now President Mnangagwa is blamed. God knows what for. Why are people trying to create a conflict when everything is being done according to the law? Anything outside is subversive. The legal framework is very coherent so where is the dispute coming from?

The nation is confronted by an opposition facing political annihilation, therefore are trying to destabilise ZEC in order to produce contested results. These are very dirty tactics. To do so they have now deployed those that practise dark arts to help them. We all know that ZEC are the guarantors of political legitimacy in Zimbabwe. To treat them like an adversary is missing the point of independent commissions.

If Zanu-PF, being the party of Government, had harassed any constitutional commission just as the MDC Alliance is doing there would have been such a massive outcry because it would have been deemed as institution tampering. But it appears the opposition is being given a lot of latitude to harangue, verbally molest and try to delegitimise an institution founded on our Constitution. How can the same people who prance around as paragons of rule of law be so lawless and subversive?

Elections do not legitimise a government only, they legitimise an electoral system. So the use of discretion must be limited as we stick to the rules as agreed by Parliament in terms of the statute and gazetted regulations.

When we say institutions like ZEC should be kept away from political processes we are talking of in everything in perception. What we are having in Zimbabwe is a party that is going around undermining public confidence in the electoral process and still expects the disillusioned electorate base to drag their feet to an election they have a problem with. Now compare that to an invigorated Zanu-PF support base that have voted in large numbers in the past including in by-elections where they were not contested by an opposition scared of losing.

The AU passed a resolution which defined independence of election management bodies such as ZEC, as how separate the body is from the sitting government or any party. The key word here is “separate”. But if political parties now want to get involved in managing elections including printing and securing ballots then the separating lines are becoming blurred.

Independence also means that the tenure of office is not determined by others. This means ZEC commissioners and or the chairperson cannot serve at the pleasure of anyone. Anyone means those demonstrating against the commissioners tomorrow asking them to resign or quit, are interfering with that tenure.

So if the opposition place the commissioners and their leader under siege they are compromising the independence of the commission. They want to scare or psychologically blackmail the commission to accede to their demands, which is quite illegal. The MDC Alliance is interfering with the security of tenure of ZEC commissioners. The Constitution insulates ZEC commissioners from being arbitrarily removed from office. This means that these “Chigumba must resign…” calls are interfering with that insulation.

The only saving grace is that Justice Chigumba is not only insulated by the Constitution but also by her personality which acts as a barrier to those that are trying to bring pressure to bear. Justice Chigumba can only be removed prematurely by her own resignation or by impeachment. Right now even the EU found it necessary to proclaim her integrity in a way that vindicated all her actions thus far.

ZEC should be allowed to enjoy its operational autonomy and determine its own calendar of activities without anyone breathing down their necks and superintending their work. They should not receive directives or instructions from anyone. That is what autonomy means. Not from an insecure or paranoid opposition or from the ruling party. The so-called Alliance is impairing ZEC’s independence and should not be allowed to do that.

ZBC Speaks on Political Party Adverts 
Abigail Mawonde
Herald Correspondent

THE Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation says it has allocated airtime to all participating political parties as stipulated by the law and warned it will forfeit airtime not utilised by parties.

In a statement, ZBC chief executive officer Mr Patrick Mavhura said the national broadcaster had taken necessary steps as prescribed by the Constitution.

“Following the proclamation of the harmonised elections on 30 May 2018 by President Emmerson Dambudzo Mnangagwa which set elections for 30 July 2018, and the subsequent sitting of the Nomination Court on 14 June 2018, putting into motion the election period, the Zimbabwe Broadcasting Corporation, ZBC has taken the necessary steps in accordance with the Constitution, the Electoral Act and the ZEC Media Coverage Regulations.”

Mr Mavhura added: “These steps are: Firstly, the national broadcaster is recording and broadcasting the three mandatory elections programmes namely; The Candidate, The Manifesto and The Discussion on both radio and television;

“Secondly, the ZBC News and Current Affairs Department has increased the daily coverage of various political parties activities which are broadcast on radio and television news bulletins.

“Thirdly, the Marketing Department has made a call out for political parties to submit their political advertisements.”

Mr Mavhura said the ZBC had since allocated airtime to all participating political parties.

“Accordingly, ZBC has since allocated airtime to all participating political parties as stipulated by the law. However, I would like to inform political parties who have not heeded the call to bring in their political advertisements that airtime which is not utilised will be forfeited.

This means that there is no banking of airtime as it does not accrue, but is forfeited. Political parties will be given the remaining airtime by the time they request for it.”

He said political parties must declare their position on political advertisements.

“It is critical for political parties to declare their position on political advertisements so that the national broadcaster is made aware if they will take up their airtime, and when they will take it up. Failure to comply with this will result in the airtime being forfeited,” said Mr Mavhura.

Yesterday, Permanent Secretary for Information, Media and Broadcasting Services Mr George Charamba said Zanu-PF was paying for political adverts by ZBC, but the MDFC Alliance is failing to pay for available political advertising space.

ED Gives Priority to Road Projects
 09 JUL, 2018 - 00:07

Assistant News Editor
Zimbabwe Herald

The new political dispensation led by President Mnangagwa’s appetite for action and less talk, has seen road projects that have been in the pipeline for over 30 years finally taking off.

During a tour of Treasury-funded road projects in Mashonaland West, Midlands, Bulawayo and Matabeleland South provinces last week, provincial road engineers said they had received the largest funding “since the turn of the century” and contractors were now overwhelmed by work.

Government has been rehabilitating roads and bridges destroyed by Cyclone Dineo in 2017, through the Emergency Road Fund while new and old projects are being fast-tracked under the auspices of the Department of Roads.

Midlands provincial roads engineer Steven Kamutema said funding for 2018 road projects had jumped from last year’s $1,8 million to $21 million.

As a result of Governments commitment to budgetary allocations, major works including the reclamation of the famous Gokwe gully are now complete. Gokwe Town, including the district administrator’s office, the new court building, police station and civil servants’ residence were on the brink of collapse due to a gully which was eating its way towards the town centre.

“The problem of the Gokwe gully has finally been solved; we managed to repair the area. This is the main highlight of the rehabilitation programme. In Mberengwa, we managed to solve the problem of two wash-aways on major bridges.

“We have re-established trafficability on all State roads and we are set to complete Kwekwe-Nkayi Road this year. Kwekwe-Nkayi is part of the Kwekwe-Lupane Highway.

“We have also began works on the Mberengwa-West Nicholson Road and the Gokwe-Siabuwa Road rehabilitation,” Eng Kamutema said.

“This is the biggest funding since the turn of the century for the province.”

Mashonaland West provincial roads engineer Finale Mapurisa, who is also the project manager for the Harare-Gweru Road dualisation project, said the 9km stretch before the Norton tollgate was the “fastest” road construction project in the history of the country.

“The roads designs are in place for the project up to Selous Roundabout. The project if wholly funded by Treasury. A survey team is on the ground and by end of year we will have designs up to Chegutu. This is a higher standard road which is very durable with concrete surfacing,” he said.

Eng Mapurisa said the Department of Roads was working with local companies after receiving $8 million from Government, while works on 10km project after the Norton tollgate had also began. The project currently employs 120 casual workers of which 55 are women.

Dennis Mapfurira, the Matabeleland South provincial roads engineer, said the Emergency Road Rehabilitation Programme had created 534 jobs in the province.

He said the 60km Gwanda-Maphisa road had received $5 million while Maphisa-Mpoengs had received $7 million. Old Gwanda Road has also been re-gravelled for 50km up to Maphisa Mission.

“In terms of funding, we have seen a big improvement since 2016 backwards,” Eng Mapfurira said.

In Bulawayo, major works are being done through funding from the Zimbabwe National Road Administration and self-financing by Bulawayo City Council.

“zinara has availed $600 000 for the main access road in Garikai/Hlalani kuhle. There are 15 000 properties in the area and that is about three times the size of Gwanda Town,” city engineer Simela Dube said.

Mayor Councillor Martin Moyo said: “We appreciate the support that we have been getting from zinara, road construction is not possible without support.”

$4,5bn Batoka Deal to Create 6 000 Jobs
09 JUL, 2018 - 00:07
Levi Mukarati recently in Bindura
Zimbabwe Herald

Zimbabwe and Zambia have agreed on principles for the $4,5 billion Batoka Gorge Hydro Electricity project secured by Harare, paving way for a technical meeting this week between experts from two the countries, President Mnangagwa has said.

Zimbabwe recently received an expression of interest from General Electric Africa to undertake the 1 600 megawatt power project along the Zambezi River, co-owned with Zambia.

The project is expected to create 6 000 jobs.

The project will ease power shortages in Zimbabwe and Zambia, with a huge potential to supply other regional countries.

Addressing a bumper crowd at Chipadze Stadium on Saturday, President Mnangagwa said the project had his blessings and those of Zambian President Edgar Lungu.

“We have the Batoka Gorge project along the Zambezi River; the feasibility studies have been completed,” said President Mnangagwa.

“There are three companies that are applying to do the project and we are assessing their capability.

“It is a $4,5 billion project and we are doing it in partnership with the Zambian Government. I wrote to my Zambian counterpart President (Edgar) Lungu and he responded favourably to what we had agreed.

“So next week, I would be sending my experts on the project and President Lungu will also be sending his team of experts so that they collectively work on the intricate details of the project.

“But at our levels as Presidents, that is myself and (President) Lungu, we have agreed that the project must go ahead.”

The development comes as Zimbabwe has set in motion a number of electricity generation projects that are envisaged to see the country produce surplus power in the next five years.

President Mnangagwa, a fortnight ago, launched the $1,5 billion Hwange Power Station Unit 7 and 8 construction project which is set to add 600 megawatts to the national grid.

The project comes after the successful completion of the Kariba South expansion venture that has an output of 300 megawatts.

Zimbabwe has also secured an investor for a coal-bed methane gas project in Matabeleland North Province.

The country is currently producing about 1 200 megawatts of electricity against a demand of 1 400MW during peak period.

The Batoka Gorge project engineering and legal assessments were carried out in 2016, but there were delays in the implementation.

Early this year, General Electric Africa approached Parliament of Zimbabwe expressing interest to invest in the multi-billion-dollar venture.

General Electric Africa director (originations) Reginald Max told a Parliamentary Portfolio Committee on Mines and Energy then that the company had the financial capability to undertake the project.

“We have a clear track record and we have the financial muscle to undertake the project,” he said.

“We believe that power assets such as Batoka should be owned by the State.

“We will invest to develop the power station, but ownership will be retained by Zimbabweans (and Zambians),” said Mr Max.

Under the Batoka project, Zimbabwe and Zambia will share the electricity equally when generation commences.

The project is being implemented under the auspices of the Zambezi River Authority, a bi-national organisation mandated to operate, monitor and maintain the Kariba Dam Complex as well as exploit the full potential of the Zambezi River.

Project specifications by the Zambezi River Authority show the scheme will be undertaken on a build, operate and transfer basis upstream of the Kariba Dam hydroelectric scheme.

“The proposed scheme includes a 181m high roller compacted concrete gravity arch dam, radial gated crest type spillway, two underground power stations on each side of the river with four 200 megawatt Francis turbines installed in each, giving a total capacity of 1600 megawatts for the scheme,” states the ZRA on its website.

“The scheme is designed as a run of the river scheme with an estimated average energy generation of 8 700GWh/year.”

Zimbabwe has over the past seven months under a new administration witnessed renewed investor confidence with a number of deals being secured and projects taking off the ground.

ED to Kick Start Border Post Modernization
Thupeyo Muleya
Beitbridge Bureau
Zimbabwe Herald

President Mnangagwa will tomorrow visit Beitbridge Border Post for a groundbreaking ceremony to begin works on the mordernisation of the country’s and sadc’s busiest inland port as part of Government’s initiative to facilitate ease of doing business.

The President recently said Cabinet had approved the upgrading of the border post.

In addition, President Mnangagwa said he had since met with the directors of the company that won the tender to upgrade the border post.

Presidential spokesperson Mr George Charamba confirmed the visit last night.

“The President will be visiting Beitbridge on Wednesday (tomorrow) for a ground-breaking ceremony for the upgrading and expansion of the border post,” he said.

By the end of day yesterday, senior Government officials from Matabeleland South province were still locked in meetings and attending to logistical issues ahead of the President’s visit.

Chairperson of the Beitbridge State functions committee, Mrs Kiliboni Ndou-Mbedzi, who is also the District Administrator said the stage was now set for the ground breaking ceremony.

“We have covered enough ground in terms of logistics and as we speak people are busy on the ground preparing the venue,” she said.

Addressing a rally at Phelandaba Stadium, in Gwanda recently, President Mnangagwa said that the New Administration’s re-engagement initiative has seen Zimbabwe joining Zambia and Botswana in the construction of Kazungula Bridge.

“I have already met with the directors of the company that won the tender to mordernise and upgrade Beitbridge border post and they gave me assurance that all was on track.

“We are hopeful that the project will be taking off soon. In addition, we are also working on implementing the one-stop border post with Zambia and Botswana at Kazungula. Through re-engagement Zimbabwe is now part of the Kazungula Bridge project,” he said.

In his 2018 National Budget, the Minister of Finance and Economic Development, Patrick Chinamasa allocated $14,5m towards upgrading infrastructure at sadc’s busiest inland port.

According to the budget statement; “A total of $4,2million will be spent on relocating the Vehicle Inspectorate Department (VID) from the border.

VP Chiwenga Condemns Bulawayo Terror Attack
09 JUL, 2018 - 00:07

Tendai Mugabe Senior Reporter

Vice President Constantino has added his voice to the growing condemnation of the terrorist attack targeted on President Mnangagwa and the top zanu-pf leadership at White City Stadium in Bulawayo two weeks ago.

He said the perpetrators of that cowardly act would be brought to book and security arms were investigating the matter.

Addressing a zanu-pf rally in Kuwadzana, Harare, yesterday, VP Chiwenga said people should observe peace all the time.

“You all saw what happened at the White City Stadium in Bulawayo,” he said.

“That is not what we expect in Zimbabwe. It is something that we condemn in strongest terms. These terrorists will be apprehended. The police and other security arms are investigating the matter to its logical conclusion.

“Eventually they will be arrested because they have nowhere to hide. They injured innocent people, 49 of them and have two passed away. Some are still in hospital including our Vice President (Cde Kembo Mohadi) and our national chairperson (Cde Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri). Why do you do such heinous things? To benefit what? We want peace and unity in our country.”

VP Chiwenga, who was accompanied by zanu-pf Politburo member Cde Cleveria Chizema, outlined zanu-pf economic vision after the July 30 general elections.

He said President Mnangagwa’s administration was prioritising development ahead of politics and sloganeering.

VP Chiwenga said President Mnangagwa recently opened a Women’s bank and a youth bank to capacitate women and young people to start business projects.

He said soon the President would also commission the US$4,2 billion Karo Resources platinum project in Chegutu.

“We are coming to you with our Manifesto which is straightforward. It outlines what President Mnangagwa plans to do after the July 30 elections. After the elections will start to implement all the things we promised that we are opening Zimbabwe for business.

“I urge you to vote wisely in the coming elections to ensure development of our country.

“Eighteen years of isolation had stagnated development. In just six months, President Mnangagwa and his administration has secured US$20 billion investment commitments. Only last week the President was commissioning Hwange Thermal Unit 7 and 8 that is going to employ more than 3 000 people. Every week we continue to open industries and retooling them. That is what we want to develop our country,” said VP Chiwenga.

VP Chiwenga urged people to vote for President Mnangagwa and all zanu-pf candidates.

He said those moving around urging people to vote for the President alone were enemies of the revolutionary party.

          Executive Leadership Academy 2018, Jul 9-13      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The Executive Leadership Academy (ELA) is designed for individuals from all backgrounds who are interested in preparing themselves for appointments to executive positions such as dean, vice president, provost, president, and chancellor. It offers a five-day intensive training experience and is guided by a select faculty team, comprised of over 25 senior-level higher education executives.

The sessions focus on 28 Executive Leadership Skills that are essential to serving as successful higher education administrators, with topics on shifts in higher education and higher education leadership, changing funding sources and expectations, new requisite multicultural competencies, risk management, governing board relations, fundraising, and many more. This Academy will prepare current and future leaders to appreciate the multicultural and global dynamics of higher education by promoting key critical thinking skills, leadership, and strategic planning for higher education officials.

Since ELA was founded in 2011, 272 fellows have graduated from the program. The fellows of ELA derive from diverse institutions: public and private universities, businesses, non-profits, and other types of institutions. In addition, nearly 10% of our graduated Fellows came from international backgrounds, hailing from countries such as Saudi Arabia, South Africa, the Netherlands, Zimbabwe, and many more. The results are exceedingly positive: many ELA graduates have advanced to positions such as deans, provosts, chancellors, and presidents, applauding ELA as a program “on the cutting edge of critical issues facing higher education.”
          Zimbabwe opposition marches on electoral agency to demand reforms      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache

          Remittance rip-offs      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   

All over the world migrant workers are sending money home to their families. The money pays hospital bills and school fees, buys land, builds houses and sets up small businesses. The cash goes from the US back to Mexico, from the Gulf back to India, from the UK back to Somalia, and from South Africa back to Malawi, Zimbabwe and the rest of southern Africa. 

But what these workers probably do not realize, since they usually only ever send to one country, is that the cost of sending money varies greatly. Now a study of the cost of remittances, carried out by London's Overseas Development Institute with support from the fund-raising charity Comic Relief, has revealed that transfers to African countries cost around half as much again as the global average, and twice as much as transfers to Latin America. 

The ODI estimates that if remittance charges were brought down to the world average, the money saved could educate an extra 14 million primary school children, half of all those currently out of school on the continent.

The bulk of this money goes through money transfer companies rather than banks, since the recipients are unlikely to have bank accounts, and transfer companies are quick, efficient and have a wide network of agents. But just two big international players dominate the business in Africa, Moneygram and Western Union, and participants in a meeting to launch the research were highly critical of the way they seemed to be abusing their market dominance.

Rwanda's High Commissioner in London, Williams Nkurunziza, said he was shocked at what the report revealed. “If you look at the remittances, 30 or 40 percent of the money that goes to Africa goes to rural areas,” he said. “This money goes to the people who are most needy, and you are allowing a multinational corporation to take bread out of the mouth of hungry children. This is not what I would call responsible capitalism!”

Glenys Kinnock, opposition spokesman on International Development in the upper house of the UK parliament, who chaired the meeting, called on the country's financial regulatory authority to intervene over the issue of excessive charges. “It is not a technocratic issue,” she said, “although it may sound like one. It is also about people's lives and the future of their children... These things have to change. We can't put up any longer with the prospect of its making things so difficult, very often impossible, for people who have such needs.”

At the end of last year, when the ODI did its research, the fees and charges to send money to most of Africa were around 12 percent - a bit less to Zambia or Tanzania, a bit more to Uganda, Malawi and the Gambia - against a world average of just over 8 percent. Even that is quite expensive; the governments of the G8 and G20 countries have pledged themselves to working towards reducing this to 5 percent.

It found that in more than 30 countries the two big players had more than 50 percent of the market; and in 10 countries they had more than 90 percent. Sometimes either Moneygram or Western Union had an effective monopoly, but even where both companies were present it did not necessarily mean that customers had much choice; one company could still have a monopoly of outlets in a particular area, and the companies habitually make their paying-out agents sign contracts promising not to also act as agents for their rivals. 

Somalia different

Significantly, the one country where the big two are absent - Somalia - has far lower remittance charges; transfers go through a number of smaller, competing companies.

Competition has been limited by the fallout from the US “war on terror”, with the banks who do bulk international transfers citing money-laundering and anti-terrorism regulations as the reason they are reluctant to extend facilities to smaller companies. Now only the biggest of the Somali companies, Dahabshiil, still has an account with a major British bank (Barclays) and even that concession was forced by a court case and is only until other arrangements can be put in place.

Inter-Africa transfers cost most

But if charges to send money to Africa from outside are steep, the cost of sending money from one African country to another can be eye-watering. 

Dilip Ratha, who works on these issues for the World Bank says exchange controls are one of the reasons the rates are so high; in some places sending money out of the country is illegal. “So if you are sending money,” he says, “let's say from Benin to Ghana, it is actually allowed (in some countries it's not even allowed) but first the CFA has to be passed through into euros or sterling or dollars, and then it has to be transferred back into the local cedi, and in both cases you pay commission. Some sort of regional currency market really needs to be created.” 

"So if you are sending money, let's say from Benin to Ghana, it is actually allowed (in some countries it's not even allowed) but first the CFA has to be passed through into euros or sterling or dollars, and then it has to be transferred back into the local cedi, and in both cases you pay commission. Some sort of regional currency market really needs to be created"  

The report found 10 routes with bank transfer charges over 20 percent. Charges from Nigeria to Ghana were 22 percent. To send from Tanzania to the rest of East Africa, or from South Africa to its near neighbours is particularly expensive, peaking at 25 percent for bank transfers between South African and Malawi. Some of the fees charged by money transfer companies are even higher; if you send money that way from Ghana to Nigeria you may have to pay a staggering 39 percent.

In some places mobile phone based systems like M-Pesa have made in-country transfers much easier and cheaper, but they haven't really taken off internationally, largely because conservative, inflexible regulatory systems insist that all international transfers must go through conventional banks. And African banks tend to have very high charges, often because they are forced by governments to finance government projects or make uncommercial loans. 

Chukwuemeka Chikezie of the Up Africa consultancy told IRIN a lot of the responsibility lay with African governments. “One of the reasons M-Pesa took off in Kenya was because the authorities nurtured and enabled innovation. If you look at other countries the regulators have tended to stifle innovation. They are very risk-averse and they don't enable even limited experiments to prove that the markets can absorb technical innovation.”

In addition, money-laundering regulations are putting impossible demands on systems designed to serve the poor, requiring, for instance, “know your customer” procedures like taking copies of ID documents for anyone receiving an international payout. Selma Ribica of M-Pesa points out this is an impossibility for agents in rural areas with no power supply. She told IRIN she would like to see a more realistic, tiered approach with much lighter regulation for small international transfers (under, say, US$200-300) which are most unlikely to have anything to do with money laundering.

Beware Facebook, Walmart

M-Pesa depends on moving money between different customers' mobile phone accounts. Now people are beginning to think of other kinds of electronic “purses” which might be linked in the same way. 

Facebook has just proposed allowing transfers between customers who have accounts with the company which they normally use to make payments for online games. So far this is only proposed for payments within the European Union, but Facebook has a huge geographical spread and has said it is keen to extend its reach in Africa. 

And the big profits made by the transfer companies are tempting other players into the market. The latest to announce it is starting money transfers is the US supermarket chain Walmart, with recipients being able to pick up their cash from any shop in the chain. To start with this will only work within the United States and Puerto Rico, but Walmart is an international group with nearly 350 stores in South Africa, and it also has a presence in Botswana, Lesotho, Swaziland, Malawi and Mozambique, opening up the tempting prospect of a new, and cheaper way for workers to send money home.

All these new ways of sending money aim to undercut Moneygram and Western Union. Now Western Union has responded by offering so-called “zero-fee” transfers to Africa if the money is sent from a bank account rather by credit card or cash. This would mean a saving of just under £5 ($8.40) for someone sending $100 from the UK to Liberia. The company would still make money (nearly $4) by using a favourable exchange rate, but it would bring the cost down to just below the G8/G20 target. 

For African's hard-pressed and hard-working migrants and their families back home, change may - finally - be on the way.

          Zimbabwe : un pasteur arrêté pour avoir vendu des billets pour le paradis !      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
Le 28 juin dernier, le pasteur Tito Wats a été arrêté par la police zimbabwéenne pour crime financier. Le pasteur demandait à ses paroissiens de l’argent en échange de tickets leur ouvrant les portes du paradis.

Selon la police, le pasteur Tito Wats a dit à des milliers de personnes que c’était Jésus qui lui était apparu, puis il lui a donné des billets pour 500 $, en particulier pour les pécheurs, afin qu’ils puissent acquérir un laisser-passer pour le paradis. Un prix particulièrement élevé pour ce pays où le salaire moyen avoisine les 2 dollars par jour.

Interpellé par la police pour « crime financier » puis interrogé, le pasteur se serait justifié en expliquant aux services de police avoir été personnellement informé par Jésus-Christ lors de leur rencontre, que ces tickets « en or pur » garantissaient aux fidèles leur salut.

« Jésus-Christ m’est apparu et m’a donné les billets en or pur pour que je puisse les vendre aux gens qui veulent le salut », a expliqué le pasteur de manière courageuse.

Pour Tito Wats son arrestation est une persécution parce qu’il fait « le travail de Dieu ». « Je me fiche de ce que les gens ou la police disent de moi, je suis persécuté parce que je fais le travail de Dieu », aurait-il déclaré.

Chose tout aussi étrange, ils seraient des milliers à avoir fait confiance au pasteur Wats et à sa femme et des milliers de personnes ont manifesté contre l’arrestation du pasteur et appellent la police à le libérer immédiatement alors qu’ils utilisent leur propre argent pour acheter le salut...

          Comment on Why would a ‘normal’ person vote for ZANU PF? by Morty Smith      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
People love free things, even if it is other peoples property. ZANU has promised free things since the beginning and have never been shy about taking that which does not belong to them. They are still promising free things. Ask Comrade Chiwenga. Then there is the sheep factor. Wolves eat sheep. This is what we see in Zimbabwe. The wolves eat the sheep and the sheep never change their behaviour. Perhaps the sheep like being eaten? It is the only thing that gives their lives meaning. It is hard, but let us all have a go at not being sheep

          Will It Take an Epidemic for Us to Do What’s Right for Our Kids? It’s Time to Get Serious on Vaccinations.      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   
The threat of measles is not one of history—it’s a real and present danger. by Shannon Hader

As a pediatrician, infectious diseases specialist, and public health expert, I was grateful for Dr. Hotez’s April 18 opinion piece in the Seattle Times titled “Anti-vaccine misinformation denies children’s rights.” It’s important to differentiate what people want to believe—that somehow parents are protecting their child by not vaccinating—from what we actually know to be true based on science and evidence: that vaccines do not cause autism and do save lives.

Since then—the news is worsening. On June 12, Dr. Hotez published a study in which we learned that Washington has two of the top 10 most under-vaccinated large cities in the U.S., Seattle and Spokane, leaving us increasingly at-risk of a measles outbreak. In late June, we learned of a measles case in Oregon, followed by a second, related case, a few days ago. And this week, we learned of a measles case here in Snohomish County. By all means, it appears the Public Health Department is doing everything right—identifying places and a timeframe that may have led to exposure. Should we be worried?

Yes. But the reason this is more of a worry than it needs to be is that too many kids in our state are unvaccinated—not because of medical ineligibility, but because in Washington, parents are allowed to choose for their kids to NOT be protected from this deadly disease, simply on their own whim or personal beliefs.

But the threat of measles is not one of history—it’s a real and present danger. When I was a medical student, I spent a great deal of time studying microbes and infectious diseases. But the true devastation of measles first became real to me when, as a medical student, I worked in a Zimbabwean rural mission hospital during a measles outbreak. Seeing infants and young children fighting for their lives against severe pneumonia and other devastating complications of measles left an indelible imprint on me. So I am truly worried for the children of Washington, as our vaccination rates in some communities are so low that we are risking outbreaks. And I’ve spoken with several school nurses and front-line doctors who are enormously frustrated by the difficulty of convincing some parents to have their kids vaccinated and the lack of “back-up” from government policies that could require these vaccinations.

The Infectious Diseases Society of America (2012), the American Medical Association (2015), the American College of Physicians (2015), and the American Academy of Pediatrics (2016) have all called for state-mandated vaccinations to attend school and the end of all non-medical exemptions, starting as early as 2012. Despite these expert recommendations, it took a 2016 measles outbreak at Disneyland for the state of California to step up. In reaction, they passed a statewide ban on non-medical exemptions and saw vaccine coverage rates rise dramatically in just one year. Yet 18 states including Washington still allow non-medical exemptions. I sincerely hope that Washington and other states needn't experience their own outbreaks to follow suit.

As a clinician, I’m acutely aware of how difficult it is for doctors and nurses on the front lines to convince parents to do the right thing—I’ve had some of those tough conversations myself because it’s a doctor’s responsibility that I take seriously. I also know that instituting a government policy that requires children to be vaccinated to attend public and private schools changes that front-line dialogue tremendously—making it easier for parents to do the right thing —both for their own child and also to protect other children in the community. This is, in fact, the role of policy.

We’ve instituted regulations with public safety in mind before. Seatbelts. Airbags. Food safety standards. Workplace standards. Helmet laws. And recall that many of these policies were not popular at first, but we implemented them because they saved lives. And vaccinations for our children must be added to that list. We should demand that our public officials rely on science-based evidence and do the right thing: making vaccinations a requirement before tragedy visits our state.

          Lingerie Campaign’s Diverse Models Are Curvy, Mature, And Of Mixed Ethnicities      Cache   Translate Page   Web Page Cache   


Lingerie brand Figleaves has teamed up with MiLK Models to create a campaign that celebrates body positivity and diversity.

The ‘#BeautyHasNoBounds’ initiative features 12 models of various shapes, sizes, ages, and skin colors to represent the broad notion of beauty.

Curvaceous models Felicity Hayward and Sonny Turner prove that beauty can come in more than one body shape, while Nicky Griffin shines a light on mature beauty that comes with age, and disabled model Kelly Knox smashes stereotypes of conventional beauty.

Shapely Dutch model Jill Kortleve and Zimbabwean model Nyasha Matonhodze were also chosen to be part of the campaign to celebrate beauty across ethnicities. Kortleve—who is of Indian, Indonesian and Surinamese descent—models alongside Yerim Ko, who is of Korean, Japanese and Chinese descent.

Jenni Burt, Figleaves’ head of buying and branding, said that the photoshoot has greatly reflected the company’s core belief that “all body types are beautiful.” Figleaves is committed to providing lingerie catered to women of various shapes and sizes. Its extensive collection offers bras ranging in sizes from 32A to 44DD, and bottoms spanning sizes XS to 3XL.

MiLK Models’ managing director Anna Shillinglaw added that the campaign focuses on the models’ natural beauty and personalities, which shine through the ads. With this campaign, the brand aims to ensure that every woman feels represented.
