“Their nutrition is different,” said Cotto-Rivera, who grew up in Puerto Rico and speaks Spanish. “The spices they use, even when they eat their meals is different.”Mexican family members come home for lunch for a three- to four-hour siesta before returning to work. In the U.S., Mexican families may not be able to do this.“They may not have that family meal at lunch anymore, and they lose that family connection,” Cotto-Rivera said. “It is hard for them to make that transition. When we teach programs, I can stress that they used to have that time together and that it is something of value they need to go back to.” The group visited Palmas de Abajo, a community where 25 percent of the residents have immigrated to the U.S., mainly to Georgia.“More than 100 people were waiting to meet us, they came to listen and talk to us,” she said. “Some of them had family members living here in Georgia and they were able to connect to us. To talk to them at that level, to share that connection, it meant a lot.” A similar group visited Honduras last year. One will go to Guatemala next year. The program is partly funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture Cooperative State Research, Education and Extension Service.(April Sorrows is a news editor with the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences.) By April SorrowUniversity of GeorgiaTo learn firsthand about Hispanic culture, Kate Whiting traveled to rural Mexico to live with the people there. The experience, she said, made her better able to serve the growing Hispanic population in Georgia. Whiting is a University of Georgia Cooperative Extension agent in Peach County. She joined 16 other UGA Extension agents and specialists for a two-week study trip to Veracruz, Mexico in May. The group included agents from Bartow, Clarke, Clayton, DeKalb, Elbert, Houston, Liberty, Laurens, McDuffie, Peach, Pierce and Thomas counties and UGA faculty from Athens, Ga., and Statesboro, Ga.“The opportunity to interact with families and see them in their day-to-day lives helped me understand the cultural aspects of their lives and some ways we are different,” Whiting said. “(The trip) gave me a better overall understanding of the culture and having this knowledge will make it easier to communicate with my Hispanic population.”Georgia’s population is an estimated 7 percent Hispanic, but it can be two or three times larger than that in some counties. The cross-cultural studies program gives UGA Extension workers new skills to serve this growing segment of Georgia’s population, said Jorge Atiles, associate dean for outreach and extension of the UGA College of Family and Consumer Sciences.“The state demographics demand that they (extension agents) need some cross-cultural training,” he said. “Whatever their area of expertise, sooner or later they will work with Latin Americans.” Living with host families, the group immersed themselves in Mexican culture, taking language classes, visiting local schools, social service centers, farms and rural outreach centers connected with the Universidad Veracruzana.“They are exposed to the culture beginning with breakfast in the morning. They are immersed in the family. They learn what life is really like in a Mexican home,” said Glenn Ames, director of UGA international public service and outreach.“Their hospitality and attention to leisure time really impressed me,” said Edda Cotto-Rivera, a UGA Extension radon and diabetes educator in Dekalb County. “They take time to be with their family, walk their kids to school and have family meals.” Cotto-Rivera noted the differences in Mexican meals. This information, she said, will help her plan and deliver effective nutrition programs in Dekalb.
The conservation efforts by Guatemala’s Pacific Naval Command are supported by its Marine Turtle Rescue Center and by turtle sanctuaries that the Armed Forces have established at various military installations. The Rescue Center is dedicated to collecting the eggs the turtles lay annually between July and November. “These centers have a 98 percent effectiveness rate because of how well they handle the nesting and hatching process – from the moment the egg is laid until the newborn turtles are released,” he added. Guatemala’s Pacific Naval Command rescues and buries all the eggs it finds along 1,400 meters of internal beach that it owns between Barra de Sanjón Chilate in Puerto San José and the seawall owned by Portuaria Quetzal. In addition to promoting the hatching of eggs, the Armed Forces also check motor vehicles and fishing boats to look for turtle eggs that could be trafficked. When born, the baby turtles, who take between 45 and 50 days to hatch depending on ground temperature, are taken to the beach and released by Military members, children, and adults who are part of the Armed Forces’ educational initiative. Researchers at the Marine Turtle Rescue Center have released scientific studies revealing that turtles return to nest in the same places where they are released as babies, which has allowed service members to increase the number of Parlama eggs harvested in recent years. In 2015, for example, service members rescued 15,042 eggs – almost all of which hatched – compared to rescuing several hundred eggs annually in the initiative’s early years. A female turtle lays 100 to 125 eggs in her lifetime. The Armed Forces’ conservation efforts have helped maintain the abundance of Parlama turtles in Guatemala since 1990, according to Airam López, chief of the National Council of Protected Areas’ (Conap) Hydrobiological Resources Section. “This data clearly shows the positive effects that the Marine Turtle Rescue Center is having, since, according to scientific studies, turtles return to nest in the same place where they were released,” Brig. Gen. Rodríguez Cifuentes said. As part of the Military’s efforts to conserve the country’s ecological treasures, the Guatemalan Armed Forces are harvesting, protecting, and conserving Lora and Parlama turtle eggs, which are considered delicacies by marine predators and humans. Once service members collect the eggs, they are taken to a turtle sanctuary at a Naval installation where they are buried in a manner similar to how female turtles lay their eggs. Burying the eggs hides them from predators, such as birds, fish, and raccoons, and keeps them safe from those who traffic turtle eggs. Scientific studies support conservation efforts By Dialogo December 16, 2015 “The Pacific Naval Command’s beach is the only protected area in the country where the marine turtle can freely lay its eggs without the danger of human interference,” Brig. Gen. Rodríguez Cifuentes said. “All eggs found are subsequently buried, while we constantly monitor the area for threats posed by people and animals.”
“In addition, many patients go to the hospital with severe symptoms, this causes the treatment to be less effective and reduces the patient’s chances of recovery,” he explained.The death rate in Bali keeps increasing. On Sept. 27, the death rate in Bali was 2.97 percent, then it increased to 3.11 percent on Oct. 4, before reaching the current 3.17 percent, Wiku further said, expressing concern over the matter. To lower the death rate, Wiku urged the provincial administrations to increase the quality of referral hospitals and emergency hospitals assigned to treat COVID-19 patients as well as self-isolation facilities for residents.“We must do it to reduce the fatality rate,” he said. “To the Balinese people, we urge you to immediately get yourself a medical check-up if you have any COVID-19 symptoms, so that you can get treatment as soon as possible,” Wiku said.Bali’s cumulative figures as of Thursday show 10,513 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 340 fatalities, according to data from the Health Ministry.As of Thursday, Indonesia’s nationwide death toll has reached 12,268, or an average mortality rate of 3.5 percent, with 349,160 cases.Meanwhile, active cases from the 10 prioritized provinces on Sept. 27 accounted for 67.62 percent of the national cases. However, on Oct. 4 it decreased to 66.38 percent, then on Oct. 11, it decreased to 65.64 percent.”This is good news, and we need to step up efforts so that the number of active COVID-19 cases in these provinces can be pushed down further,” Wiku said.As of Sept. 27, COVID-19 deaths from these 10 provinces contributed 80.18 percent to the national tally. On Oct. 4 the percentage decreased to 79.18 percent and on Oct. 11 it continued to decline to 78.71 percent. (iwa) Editor’s note: This article is part of a public campaign by the COVID-19 task force to raise people’s awareness about the pandemic.Topics : Based on weekly evaluations during two weeks on Sept. 27, Oct. 4 and Oct.11. Central Java and Papua had recorded an increase in new COVID-19 cases and a decrease in recovered patients. While Bali recorded an increase in deaths in the past two weeks.For Central Java, during the two weeks from Sept. 27 to Oct.11 the percentage of active cases increased from 22.49 to 23.94 percent. Recoveries decreased from 71.09 to 70.35 percent. Fatalities decreased from 6.42 to 5.71 percent. Then in Papua, there was a significant increase in the percentage of active cases from 35.7 to 43.3 percent, while a 62.8 percent recovery rate decreased to 55.21 percent. The percentage of deaths fluctuated from 1.34 percent on Sept. 27 up to 1.52 percent on Oct. 4 and down to 1.44 percent on Oct. 11.In Papua, Wiku explained, an increase in active cases and a decrease in recoveries, apart from being caused by local transmission, could be due to contact tracing, specimen examination or testing and inadequate health services or treatment. The national COVID-19 task force says in general COVID-19 handling in 10 prioritized provinces is showing good results, but it highlighted that three provinces needed special attention.The 10 provinces prioritized for COVID-19 handling are DKI Jakarta, West Java, Central Java, East Java, Bali, South Kalimantan, South Sulawesi, North Sumatra, Banten and Papua. “We need to give extra attention to Central Java, Papua and Bali,” said task force spokesperson Wiku Adisasmito in a statement published on the task force website on Thursday. #avoidcrowd #usesoap #covid19taskforce #mothermessage #wearmask #keepyourdistance #washyourhand #socialdistance
Advertisement Liverpool are closing in on the Premier League title (Picture: Getty)I would love to say let’s go for a surprise in this one, but they are so close to winning the title they will be desperate to get the job done, they will want to put pressure on City who play the following day, knowing that if they slip up then Liverpool will have their title. They will want to put their derby draw behind them and win this one, Klopp will prepare them well and he’ll want them to wrap it up as soon as possible, the last thing he will want is any doubt creeping in the players minds. Crystal Palace have had a great season, and they may prove me wrong, but I think Liverpool will get their job done. Prediction: 2-1.Betfair Odds: Liverpool 2/7, Crystal Palace 14/1, Draw 11/2 Burnley vs WatfordWatford are another side in trouble and this could be a big chance for them to create a bit of a gap is Spurs beat West Ham. I know there are a few contract issues for Burnley and that is a massive problem in my opinion, if these things aren’t resolved for when they play next then it’s going to be another struggle with a limited squad of players. Burnley will be happy with where they are in the table and it is a case for them to see out the season now, so I think Watford will get something in their trip up North. Prediction: 0-1.AdvertisementAdvertisementBetfair Odds: Burnley 11/5, Watford 13/8, Draw 9/4 Southampton vs Arsenal Advertisement Dimitar BerbatovTuesday 23 Jun 2020 10:30 pmShare this article via facebookShare this article via twitterShare this article via messengerShare this with Share this article via emailShare this article via flipboardCopy link2kShares David de Gea is back in the spotlight after another high profile error (Picture: Getty)Sheffield Untied had a bad result against Newcastle, but they were down to ten men and that made things very difficult. United need to the points and they have to win this game to keep top four hopes alive. Sheffield will make it really difficult against them, they don’t give a dam who they play and they just play the football they know how to play, I have said it before but they are the surprise of the season for me. Despite that, United will be desperate to get the three points, and I think they will just edge it. Prediction: 2-1.AdvertisementAdvertisementADVERTISEMENTBetfair Odds: Man Utd 8/15, Sheff Utd- 8/1, Draw- 7/2 Newcastle vs Aston VillaAston Villa are another team in trouble, they do have some good players but sometimes that doesn’t help much. Newcastle surprised me last time out with some good football. Villa are really fighting for their lives and I think they will take the points against Newcastle, who are safe, I can see them underestimating Villa in this one. Prediction: 0-1.Betfair Odds: Newcastle 6/4, Aston Villa 9/4, Draw 5/2 Norwich vs EvertonIt’s not looking good for Norwich and I can’t see them pulling off a miracle. Everton will want to continue proving that they have a good squad and that they should be taken seriously, they have a great manager as well now. I liked the way Everton played against Liverpool and I think they will go one step further in this one and take all three points. Prediction: 1-3.Betfair Odds: Norwich 10/3, Everton- EVS, Draw 11/4 Wolves vs BournemouthWolves are the other team surprising me, they are performing really well, they are going under the radar and they have a great chance to get a top four spot. Everybody’s concentrating on the big names like United, Chelsea, Spurs and Arsenal, but Wolves haven’t been given the credit for the season they are having. I think they will be pushing and they will believe that they can surprise a lot of people. I like watching them play and I think they will beat Bournemouth. Prediction: 2-0.Betfair Odds: Wolves 8/13, Bournemouth 11/2, Draw 16/5Liverpool vs Crystal Palace It’s going from bad to worse for Arsenal and Mikel Arteta (Picture: Getty)It is the same problem every time for Arsenal, how many mistakes to they have to make before they learn? Serious questions will be asked if they lose three in a row. I liked Arteta as a player and I’d like to see him succeed as a young manager, I want to see him have success, but sometimes the path to get there is a bit difficult. I don’t want to see them lose three in a row, saying that Danny Ings is back from the restart scoring, so this isn’t going to be an easy one for Arsenal, but they really need to finally start showing some balls and I think they just might in this one. Prediction: 1-2.Betfair odds: Southampton 9/5, Arsenal- 7/4, Draw- 5/2Chelsea vs Man CityThis is going to be a good game. Chelsea are pushing and they have a nice cushion of five points in fourth. City will want to deny Liverpool the league title for longer so they will want to do everything to win this game, it will also be a help to United if they win and will give them another opportunity to close the gap. City have looked sharp since the return, I think they can still do better. It’s a blow that Aguero picked up an injury, I love him and the way he scores goals, but I think they have a lot of quality players and they will take their chances against Chelsea.

Japan’s Government Pension Investment Fund (GPIF) has called for applications from asset managers for non-Japanese Bonds and has issued a request for information on fund-of-fund managers for emerging markets (EM) infrastructure.Under the fixed income mandate, the fund is looking for managers that undertake both active and passive investment in foreign bonds.For active investment, GPIF lists indices including Bloomberg Barclays Euro Aggregate Bond Index and the JP Morgan GBI-EM Global Diversified Index as investment benchmarks.It said it would also accept “any other benchmark (unhedged in Japanese yen terms) in accordance with investment product proposals”. For passive Investment, GPIF would assign the benchmark.Passive investment managers are being asked to provide either the track record of FTSE World Government Bond Index (ex-JPY Unhedged/in JPY terms) or another non-Japanese Bond benchmark.GPIF did not set a deadline for the offering. “We will review applications as needed,” it said.“Upon consideration of diversifying passive fund benchmarks, we will start reviewing passive fund managers on 22 May 2020.“We seek asset managers with broad expertise and access to various benchmarks, such as corporate high yield indices, EM-related indices (and) aggregate indices.”At the beginning fo the month, the fund increase its allocation to foreign fixed income by 10% as it planned to cut back on its exposure to domestic government bonds for the next five years.For EM infrastructure, the ¥158trn (€1.35trn) pension fund said it is considering appointing a specialist fund-of-funds manager as part of its global infrastructure strategy.GPIF said it “expects to receive useful information from managers in the relevant market in order to develop an idea of potential investment in the emerging markets going forward”.It added: “GPIF maintains the key strategy to invest mainly in core infrastructure, which will yield stable income”.GPIF is looking for a fund-of-funds arrangement but it said it “will also accept information” on other investment schemes.More than two years ago, GPIF appointed StepStone Infrastructure & Real Assets as its global fund-of-funds manager.

Nigeria’s Super Eagles forward, Joe Aribo, was in great form on a day Glasgow Rangers claimed a 4-0 win over Motherwell. Aribo scored one of the goals that confirmed Rangers’ supremacy in the all-important warm-up duel. The Gers had come into this match with a 100% record in their friendly games, keeping clean sheets in all. They first saw off French giants Lyon before edging past Patrick Vieira’s Nice by the same scoreline. Wednesday’s match at the Ibrox saw Rangers take a 3-0 lead thanks to Ryan Kent, Ianis Hagi – who scored a brace in the victory over Nice, and then Aribo on the stroke of half-time. Ricki Lamie then went on to put the ball into his own net in the 68th minute to complete the scoring. Rangers are participating in friendly games in a bid to get players fit after the 2019-20 Scottish Premiership was cancelled because of the coronavirus pandemic. Celtic were declared champions for the ninth consecutive season, finishing 13 points clear of Rangers. Both sides faced off in the Scottish League Cup final and it was the men in green and white that came out victorious 1-0. A new Premiership season commences on August 1 with Rangers tackling Aberdeen at Pittodrie. Aribo joined Rangers from Charlton Athletic in last summer and was an instant hit for Steven Gerrard’s team, making a total of 48 appearances in all competitions, scoring nine goals and providing eight goals. Three of them came in Premiership wins against Livingston, Hibernian and a 2-2 draw at St. Johnstone. Aribo also scored three times during Europa League qualifying in victories against St. Joseph’s, FC Progres Niederkorn and FC Midtjylland. Rangers made it into the group phase and finished second in Group G, one point behind FC Porto and ahead of Young Boys and Feyenoord. They beat Braga 4-2 on aggregate in the Round of 32, but have a molehill to climb in the Round of 16 with a 3-1 first leg home defeat by Bayer Leverkusen. read also:2020/21 Season: Aribo to know opening games opponents Monday Aribo switched international allegiance from England to Nigeria and made his Super Eagles bow in a friendly with Ukraine in September 2019, scoring on the occasion, before netting his second in the next encounter this time a 1-1 draw with five-time world champions Brazil. The 24-year-old’s energetic displays in the middle of the park have made him become a fast fan favourite in the country after just four caps and is largely seen as an upgrade to former captain John obi Mikel.

Cincinnati, OH—In Cincinnati reds news, Longtime Reds and Hall of Fame broadcaster Marty Brennaman will be inducted into the Cincinnati Reds Hall of Fame as the sole member of the Class of 2020Brennaman announced in January that he will retire at the end of the 2019 season.The induction will include an on-field ceremony on Saturday, April 25, and the 2020 Reds Hall of Fame Induction Gala on Sunday, April 26.Brennaman will be the first broadcaster inducted into the Reds Hall of Fame.
He said: “I am always confident because it’s my way of thinking. I signed a contract here for three years and I have one year more. “I never felt any problem from inside the club to finish my contract, so all the other things and the media news… I suppose you have important information, so we will see who is right at the end of the season.” Pellegrini readily admits he is not satisfied with how the season has turned out but he does not think the end result warrants a major inquisition. He said: “In the Premier League it is not bad to be one year winning a title and the other when you cannot win it. It is better to win it twice but if you can’t it is best to be second. “But that doesn’t mean I am happy with the season.” It may not involve Pellegrini, but changes are likely at Eastlands over the summer with a number of players possibly heading out. Pellegrini said: “All the clubs, not just this club, must make changes at the end of the season. My words would be exactly the same if we won the title. “It is important every year to make some changes and we will see which are the best changes. “(It is) not major surgery because I don’t think we need that but it is important to have some new faces. “We will try every year to have a stronger squad, but not because our squad is too old or we lost the title this year. Every year it is important to make changes.” Speculation over Pellegrini’s position was rife in March and April as City went out of the Champions League and it became obvious their Barclays Premier League title defence was coming to a limp end. But the 61-year-old, who retains credit after winning two trophies last season, has frequently spoken confidently about staying on and form in the closing weeks of the season has taken the heat off. “There is not any special conversation,” said Pellegrini, whose side are assured of second place ahead of Sunday’s final game against Southampton after five successive wins. “I don’t think this club needs a special meeting to analyse the end of the season because we are always analysing every week what we are doing. All of us know exactly what we think. “We can sit down to have a conversation because it’s normal, but we are always having conversations every week. So it’s not a special conversation at the end of the season.” When this meeting might take place is unknown, although with City flying out for their post-season tour of North America on Monday, it could occur on Sunday if Khaldoon attends the Southampton game at the Etihad Stadium. Nobody at City has ever given any indication that there is a desire to remove Pellegrini, despite regular stories linking the club with other potential managers. Speaking to the media at a press conference, Pellegrini underlined this point. Manchester City boss Manuel Pellegrini has played down the significance of his anticipated end-of-season review with the club’s top brass. The Chilean is expected to meet with chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak and chief executive Ferran Soriano – possibly as early as this weekend – to analyse the 2014-15 campaign. Such meetings have become protocol under the ownership of Sheikh Mansour and, given City’s underwhelming season, this year’s has been interpreted as an appraisal that could lead to Pellegrini’s exit.
