Tai chi may improve cardiovascular health: study

first_imgBeijing, Mar 10 (PTI) Traditional Chinese exercises such as Tai Chi may improve the health and well-being of people living with heart disease, high blood pressure or stroke, a new study has found.Researchers from Shanghai University of Sport in China reviewed 35 studies, including 2,249 participants from 10 countries.They found that among participants with cardiovascular disease, Chinese exercises helped reduce systolic blood pressure by more than 9.12 mm Hg and diastolic blood pressure by more than 5 mm Hg on average.They also found small, but statistically significant drops in the levels of bad cholesterol (low-density lipoprotein) and triglycerides.Chinese exercises also seemed to improve quality of life and reduce depression in patients with cardiovascular disease.The review analysed studies which randomly assigned participants to groups performing traditional Chinese exercises (most commonly Tai Chi, Qigong and Baduanjin), engaging in another form of exercise or making no change in activity level.”Traditional Chinese exercises are a low-risk, promising intervention that could be helpful in improving quality of life in patients with cardiovascular diseases – the leading cause of disability and death in the world,” said Yu Liu from Shanghai University of Sport.Tai chi is an internal Chinese martial art practiced for both its defense training and its health benefits.The findings were published in the Journal of the American Heart Association.

Gabriel Jesus takes No.9 shirt at Man City

first_imgGabriel Jesus has changed his shirt number at Manchester City, with the Brazil international striker to wear No.9 from the 2019-20 campaign.The South American arrived at the Etihad Stadium in the winter transfer window of 2017.He took No.33 at that stage, with none of the regular striking shirts available.

Sergio Aguero is very much the No.10 at City, with the Argentine frontman still a prolific presence for the Blues.When Jesus was signed, Nolito had number nine but he has since moved on, freeing Jesus to step into his shoes.The City star has told the club’s official website: “It will be an honour to wear the City number nine shirt and I’ll do so with great pride.“I hope to score many goals wearing this jersey and help City to more trophies in the coming seasons.“It’s the number I wear with Brazil and as always, I’ll be giving everything for City when I’m wearing it.”Sergio Aguero Gabriel Jesus Pep Guardiola Manchester City Swansea 160319Jesus has netted 45 goals in 100 appearances for City so far.He was not a guaranteed starter in the 2018-19 season, but made a telling contribution when called upon.A personal best return of 21 efforts across all competitions were recorded, including two in an FA Cup final destruction of Watford that wrapped up a historic domestic treble for City.The hope is that there are many more goals to come.Jesus had sparked exit talk at one stage, with it suggested that he may look to move on with Aguero established as the first choice frontman under Pep Guardiola.The 22-year-old has seemingly brought that speculation to a close with his change of number.Jesus will be hoping to fare better in the No.9 shirt than some of those to have filled it for City in the recent past, with the likes of Nolito, Alvaro Negredo, Valeri Bojinov and Emile Mpenza among his predecessors.The jersey has not always been a curse, though, with cult icons Paulo Wanchope and Paul Dickov having also been City No.9s, while Emmanuel Adebayor and Niall Quinn have also donned that shirt during the Premier League era.last_img read more

Railsafety audit days before fatal Quebec crash found significant weaknesses in government

OTTAWA — A rail-safety audit completed just days before the deadly July train crash in Lac-Megantic, Que., found “significant weaknesses” in Transport Canada’s oversight of federally regulated railways.[np_storybar title=”Read the auditor general’s full report on rail-safety oversight” link=”#1″] [/np_storybar]Those weaknesses include a lack of knowledge of rail routes used to transport dangerous goods, too few safety auditors, poorly trained inspectors and an absence of follow-up or sanctions when safety problems are identified.The auditor general found that only 14 safety audits of Canada’s 31 federally regulated railways had been completed in the previous three years — just a quarter of the audits Transport Canada had expected to carry out.Eight of those 14 audits focused on just the two largest operators, CN and Canadian Pacific, leaving Canada’s smaller operators largely unchecked.One of those small rail companies was the Montreal, Maine and Atlantic, whose unattended, single-operator train carrying 7.6 million litres of volatile crude oil derailed and exploded in Lac-Megantic on July 6, killing 47 people.The auditor general’s report, which was wrapped up barely a week before the crash, explicitly states it makes no assessment of the Lac-Megantic disaster.However, it concludes that “Transport Canada needs to address significant weaknesses in its oversight of safety management systems implemented by federal railway companies to manage safety risks on a day-to-day basis.”Among the issues identified: Transport Canada lacks information on which routes are used to transport dangerous goods. The department is not getting the internal risk assessments conducted by railway companies.  Information on the condition of railway bridges is missing, as is financial information on privately owned railways. The department hasn’t properly developed regulations to establish when a railway gets an operating certificate. “The department did not take any enforcement action to require railways to maintain adequate and effective systems in place, even when inspectors identified deficiencies that could affect the safety of railway operations,” says the audit.Many of the problems are long-standing issues that have been previously flagged, dating back a dozen years to when the federal government adopted a new rail safety regime called Safety Management System, or SMS.The SMS program relies on Ottawa doing in-depth safety audits to ensure rail operators are complying with whole-system safety protocols, rather than just spot checks for ad hoc deficiencies.Instead, the auditor general has found that Transport Canada still carries out tens of thousands of poorly designed inspections by under-trained inspectors. Safety audits, meanwhile, languish.In 2009, the department estimated it needed 20 systems auditors to do the work properly — even though the auditor general found this estimate was not based on audit methodology or other key determinants of work load. Be that as it may, the department has just 10 auditors.It will take years to audit all 31 federally regulated railways, says the report, and Ottawa has just added responsibility for another 39 non-federal rail operators to its safety workload.Some 40% of Transport Canada’s inspectors, meanwhile, are eligible to retire in 2015.The report found that only a third of managers and two-thirds of inspectors had attended key training course in 2012 and 2013.“These rates might help to explain the weaknesses we found in our review of Transport Canada audit files.”Transport Canada agreed with all the report’s findings and said it is working to put in place fixes, starting this winter and running into 2016.“In our view, it is taking too long to resolve significant safety issues,” the audit general concluded.View this document on Scribd read more

Volunteerism to be theme of annual UN meeting with civil society organizations

Titled “NGOs Today: Diversity of the Volunteer Experience,” the 54th annual Conference will explore issues that challenge civil society organizations, many of which are guided by the spirit of volunteerism. In conjunction with the 2001 International Year of Volunteers, it will focus on the diversity of volunteer experiences around the world, and identify ways in which this spirit can be used more effectively to support the goals and principles of the UN. Over 2,000 representatives from more than 600 organizations in 90 countries have registered for the Conference. They will be welcomed by the Interim Head of the Department of Public Information, Shashi Tharoor, and hear addresses by Secretary-General Kofi Annan and General Assembly President Harri Holkeri.

Ban tells European Parliament to work together to address challenge of migration

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon takes part in a selfie at the ‘Our World, Our Dignity, Our Future: The post-2015 Agenda and the Role of Youth’ event. UN Photo/Evan Schneider Within that context, he stressed the importance of addressing the challenge of migration, in the Mediterranean and in Southeast Asia, in his speech to the parliament.“Too many women, men and children are losing their lives in perilous journeys of escape,” he said. “Half those crossing the Mediterranean are fleeing war or persecution or human rights abuses. They qualify for international protection as refugees.”Around 1,800 had drowned in the Mediterranean this year already, he said, which was a 20-fold increase on 2014, and he stressed the important role of Europe and the important collective responsibility it has to act.“Saving lives should be the top priority,” he said. “And while we need to see more effective law enforcement actions against traffickers and smugglers, we also need safer alternatives to dangerous voyages, as well as legal channels such as resettlement, family reunification and work and study visas.”He described meeting in Ireland several people from Syria, Afghanistan, Myanmar and the Democratic Republic of the Congo who had been successfully re-settled, and he said that more such examples of offering a “helping hand” are needed.He welcomed the European Commission’s new migration policy and the proposal for the relocation of 40,000 of asylum-seekers, as “a step in the right direction,” and he said the that the UN, the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the International Organization for Migration (ION) would continue to work with European leaders to address the crisis in a way that upholds human rights and international law.

The latter issue had also been on the agenda when Mr. Ban met with Federica Mogherini, High Representative of the European Union for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and Vice-President of the European Commission. He commended the collective decision by EU Member States to achieve the 0.7 per cent of gross domestic product (GDP) target for official development assistance (ODA), according to a statement by Mr. Ban’s spokesperson.The statement noted that the EU’s decision comes at a pivotal time ahead of the Financing for Development Conference to be held in July in Addis Ababa and the post-2015 development agenda summit in September in New York.Mr. Ban praised Europe’s effort on the Iran nuclear negotiations and within the Quartet on the Middle East and the two also discussed issues related to prospects for peace in Ukraine, Yemen and Burundi.Also today, the Secretary-General attended the site of the Tomorrowland music festival, where he carved a message of peace on behalf of the UN on the One World Bridge, a 600 metre-long structure designed by Belgian artist, Arne Quinze, symbolizing ‘freedom’. Mr. Ban said he hoped the bridge and his message would remind people of the UN’s work.Last night, Mr. Ban met with Ministers of Development of European Union Member States in Brussels for a working dinner to discuss progress and challenges ahead of the Third International Conference on Financing for Development in Addis Ababa in July and the Summit on Sustainable Development in New York in September.As well as general agreement that the conference’s outcome had to meet the level of ambition of the Sustainable Development Goals, the Secretary-General applauded the EU’s leadership on climate change, stressing the importance of reaching a meaningful, universal agreement in Paris in December.

Pamela Anderson and Lady Gaga rally to cause of Julian Assange

first_img“Let’s see what happens when he’s free. But you know I spend probably more time with him than any other man socially, which is very odd,” Anderson said in a Swedish TV talk-show appearance in March. Anderson, who is currently promoting the new Hollywood “Baywatch” movie in which she has a cameo role, made no comment on Friday on the Swedish decision other than to retweet the smiling photo Assange posted of himself in his first reaction to the news.In April, Anderson said that “our ‘affair’ and the curiosity surrounding that might bring some attention to his situation. That’s fine, but I’d rather not go into private details. Let’s just say everyone deserves love.”Earlier this month, she blogged again about Assange in a post called “We have more than a romantic life,” in which she said that the romance rumours were “a distraction when so much is at stake.”The blog post was accompanied by a black-and-white picture of the two of them cheek to cheek. “You may be an enemy of the state but you are not an enemy of humanity,” Lady Gaga told Assange in the video interview, which was released by Wikileaks on Wednesday.Assange has said nothing about his closer relationship with Anderson, and she has been coy about characterising it as dating or romantic. Assange, 45, is a cyber hero to some for exposing government abuses of power and championing free speech. To others he is a criminal who has undermined the security of the West.To Anderson, he is “the most intelligent, interesting and informed man in existence. Yes – I think he’s quite sexy,” the 49-year-old actress, former Playboy model and animal rights campaigner said in a March blog post. Photographers have snapped Anderson, often carrying take-away food, making numerous visits to the Ecuadorean embassy in the past six months.Anderson is not Assange’s only celebrity supporter. Pop singer Lady Gaga visited him in 2012 and filmed him for a video that was distributed this week to mark the release from a U.S prison of Chelsea Manning, who provided Wikileaks with more than 700,000 classified U.S. army documents.

ECD minibus operators burn tyres block roads as Union wants meeting

…Hire car owners also calling for Govt intervention Several minibus drivers on the East Coast of Demerara (ECD) on Friday morning stacked and burned several tyres along the Coldingen public road and the Railway Embankment as they increased the pressure on Government to respond to their concerns by reducing the prices for gasoline at the pumps.As a result of the blaze and the ensuing traffic chaos that could arise, the fire service and the police were been summoned to the scene and quelled the fire.The fire fighters also removed the debris that remained on the roadJust yesterday, a series of protest and strike actions were mounted by the drivers.Meanwhile, on Friday the United Minibus Union (UMU), held a press conference where it made several calls for Government to intervene and cushion the rising fuel prices, noting that while they were acquainted with the relevant authorities in the previous administration, they are lost as to who they should take the matter up with in the Coalition.“…but the point persons in the Commerce Department in the Tourism Ministry indicated to us that they are not involved in negotiating minibus fares and other related matters. At this time, the Union does not know who we should engage,” President Eon Andrew of the UMU said.Moreover, he said that if the price of gasoline does not reduce, minibus drivers will be forced to hike their fares. “As it relates to the constantly escalating fuel prices and the concomitant minibus operational costs, the Union is very concerned that there can be a frantic increase in minibus fares which obviously will impact on the travelling public,” he said.However, Andrews asserted that it is not for the drivers to decide that the fares be raised, which is why negotiations with Government is necessary.“Things must be done in a very civil manner. We’ll stick to the structure agreed to with the Ministry of Tourism, Industry and Commerce which must be displayed within the carriage of the bus…Negotiations would indicate [further]. Government will know minimum wage and we can negotiate these things. That’s how we arrive at these things,” he said.The Union is proposing a hike of fares by at least $20 and as much as $40, since the drivers complained bitterly about their livelihood being adversely affected by the climbing fuel prices.Hire car owners in certain sections of the country are also calling on the Government to reduce the fuel prices or increase the fares charged immediately.So far taxi drivers working in Diamond, East Bank Demerara and the Corentyne area have been the most vocal with operators calling on the Government to end its silence and take action to remedy the situation.Some said it was totally unfair that they have to pay the high fuel prices but are not allowed to increase their fares to cushion the effect as is the normal cause with private enterprise.

Vulnerability in Ruby on Rails could bring 200000 sites down

first_imgIn the realm of computer security there are bugs, and then there are bugs. The latter refers to a real showstopper — the kind of bug that could bring a website to its knees and expose user data if the wrong people figure it out. Just such a bug has been discovered in Ruby on Rails, and it is estimated that roughly 200,000 websites are at risk of attack.The bug is of the most serious nature, and stems from the way Rails handles formatted parameters. While complicated, the object injection attack is 100% effective as described. It could give a remote hacker the necessary access to execute any code on the server running Rails. This would allow the attacker to do just about anything including copying data, deleting web assets, and simply taking the site offline without all that messy DDoS-ing.Ruby on Rails is an extremely popular web app framework that is used on sites like Hulu, Basecamp, Github, and Groupon. What’s worse, the bug has been present for the last six years, ensuring that the majority of existing Rails implementations are affected. Security experts worry that a worm could be developed that jumps from site to site, exploiting the prevalence of this vulnerability with disastrous results.Administrators running Rails are advised to make sure their server is running 3.2.11, 3.1.10, 3.0.19, or 2.3.15. Updating immediately to one of these fixed releases should prevent a server from being infiltrated using this bug. If updating isn’t possible, developers are (strongly) encouraged to disable XML.Updating Rails should be a relatively easy fix for most configurations, but I’m sure someone is going to miss the memo and live to regret it.via Ars Technicalast_img read more

Game of Thrones already lost its greatest hero Oberyn Martell

first_img 38 Photos Now playing: Watch this: Tags Game of Thrones stars, from season 1 through today Horrifyingly, The Mountain trips Oberyn to the ground and punches him hard enough to knock out his teeth. But it’s not over.The Mountain proceeds to crush Oberyn’s eyes with his thumbs as he sadistically admits his crimes, then smooshes the prince’s head before collapsing. It’s as gory and disturbing as it sounds, and it chills me to this day (even if Pascal has fun with it). Enter Oberyn.I never really worried about Tyrion, but the way Oberyn steps into his dark, lonely cell at his lowest moment and reveals his understanding of the small man’s challenging life utterly warmed my heart. In a world where we’ve seen pregnant woman getting stabbed in the belly and babies sacrificed to ice zombies, how could I not love the guy at this point? He’s proven himself a paragon of decency and justice (even if he’s motivated by vengeance).”I will be your champion,” Oberyn says, the torch crackling in his hand.I whooped with joy as Tyrion is apparently saved and vengeance seems within Oberyn’s grasp.At the trial, a supremely cocky Oberyn knocks back a drink as he prepares to face The Mountain. “Today is not the day I die,” he tells Tyrion and his paramour, Ellaria, and I so wanted to believe him. But we know Game of Thrones is cruel, and I loved Oberyn a little too much. My hero is dead, Tyrion’s fate is apparently sealed and Tywin appears untouchable. Or course, Tyrion manages to escape and justice soon finds its way to Tywin as he sits on the loo, but Oberyn’s fall is one of the show’s darkest moments and I cared just a bit less about the whole thing after that.But he still beat The Mountain, who succumbed to his poison and is just a zombie now. I like to think Oberyn’s revenge is complete, even if it cost him his life. At least Pascal will soon show up as the main character in Star Wars: The Mandalorian — I’ll tell myself he’s Oberyn reborn.So go and be someone’s champion . Just don’t pace about above your fallen enemy. Spinning through the air and twirling his spear (a whirlwind once again), Oberyn fights like Star Wars’ Darth Maul — who blew my 12-year-old mind in 1999 — and wears The Mountain down with quick, poison-tipped stabs. Magnificent.”You raped her! You murdered her! You killed her children!” he repeats, demanding that The Mountain admit his crime. Oberyn Martell (seen with lady friend Ellaria) was the greatest hero we saw in Game of Thrones. HBO I’m as excited about season 8 of Game of Thrones starting Sunday as anyone. I’ve watched from the very beginning and am wildly invested in the fates of Arya Stark, Brienne of Tarth, Jaime Lannister and Jon Snow.But my favorite character is long gone. Oberyn Martell (Pedro Pascal) was just too good for that world.Oberyn — nicknamed the Red Viper — came into King’s Landing like a whirlwind at the start of season 4. The prince from the southern Dorne region seemed exotic, mysterious and dangerous in his first scene, which saw him stabbing a Lannister goon through the hand and pinning him to a table after being dissed.From here, we learn Oberyn seeks vengeance for the death of his sister Elia and her children at the hands of Gregor Clegane, the horrifying unit better known as The Mountain and one of smug jerk Tywin Lannister’s bannermen. He’s itching for payback against The Mountain and Tywin, who ordered Elia’s death. Since the Lannisters are basically the show’s bad guys at this point, this pretty much sets Oberyn up as a hero. 8:25 AI predicts who lives and dies in Westeros Season 8 has me begging for the sweet release of death When season 8 starts, how to stream HBO without cable Oberyn ultimately stabs The Mountain in the stomach and severs his hamstring, bringing the beast down. He paces back and forth over his defeated opponent, demanding The Mountain admit that Twyin (who’s watching the fight with his stupid smug face) ordered him to kill Oberyn’s sister and her kids. And so the Dornish prince’s hubris is his downfall as Game of Thrones has one of its cruelest moments. This is the point where I like to stop I when I rewatch the fight, as I’ve done about 10 times … why would I experience this again? null 5:50center_img More Game of Thrones How Game of Thrones language High Valyrian comes to life Originally published April 11.  Now playing: Watch this: 57 Photos Game of Thrones Season 8: All your questions answered… Share your voice The 38 most gut-wrenching Game of Thrones deaths, ranked This sense is reinforced by his compassion — unlike the rest of Westeros, he never judged Tyrion Lannister (another beloved character and the only member of his family who hasn’t done anything horrible) for his small stature. He smoothly charmed all in his path (but me most of all) while maintaining a razor-sharp focus on his enemy.As the season wears on, Tyrion finds himself in a spot of a bother — he’s put on trial for the fatal poisoning of his jerk-in-chief nephew, King Joffrey. Needless to say, he didn’t do it, but his trusted paramour and most of his family turn on him. Tyrion faces the chop. His only hope to be declared innocent is for someone to stand as his champion and win in a trial by combat. Unfortunately, the champion will have to battle The Mountain, and no one wants to face that beast. 0 TV and Movies Game of Thrones HBOlast_img read more
