Inequality rising despite promises of globalization UN expert says

9 February 2007Much of the world has seen “a significant and disturbing increase of inequality” in the last two decades, contradicting predictions that globalization and liberalization would foster more equal opportunities, a senior United Nations economist said today. “The evidence is quite clear,” Assistant Secretary-General for Economic Development Jomo Kwame Sundaram said at a press briefing at the world body’s Headquarters in New York. “Inequality has grown at two levels: between countries and within most countries – with the notable exceptions of Northern Europe and some Middle Eastern and North African countries.” The increase of inequality across the world “is very contradictory to the proponents of the ‘flat world idea,’” he said. “They basically argue that, as a consequence of globalization and economic liberalization, the result will be a much more equitable world with equal opportunities, and unfortunately the contrary has been the case.” This surge of inequality had very important implications for efforts to reduce poverty, Mr. Sundaram said. Much of the world had experienced slower economic growth in the last three decades, and with increasing inequality it was not surprising there had not been a significant decrease in the hundreds of millions of people who are poor. The remedy was to try and create full, productive and decent employment, he said. “There is no real way we can reduce poverty except by creating jobs, and this is something we need to recognize.” Despite the improved economic growth in the last five years, there had been a worldwide decline in the number of jobs and an increase in unemployment and underemployment. Inequality should be moved at the top of the development agenda, he said, and the focus should remain on the close interrelationship between inequality, poverty and unemployment. Mr. Sundaram was presenting the new book Flat World, Big Gaps, which he co-edited with social development expert Jacques Baudot, who was also present at the briefing. “The book tries to restore the linkage between the reduction of inequality and reduction of poverty,” Mr. Baudot said. “It shows that the question of economic growth is not simply a matter of increasing the aggregate of income, but is a matter of the kind of growth, the composition of it and whom it has benefited.” read more

Closing Bell TSX closes up BlackBerry plunges as Fairfax revises investment proposal

TORONTO — The Toronto stock market registered a minor gain Monday amid a huge plunge in BlackBerry (TSX:BB) shares after its largest shareholder said it won’t be taking the tech company private.Here are the closing numbersTSX — 13,361.73 +24.27 0.18%S&P 500 — 1,767.93 +6.29 0.36%Dow — 15,639.12 +23.57 0.15%Nasdaq — 3,936.59 +14.55 0.37%The S&P/TSX composite index rose 24.27 points to 13,361.73 led by gains in beaten-down mining stocks.U.S. indexes also racked up small gains as traders hoped that a heavy slate of economic data coming out this week will offer some clues about when the Federal Reserve will start to wind up stimulus that has supported a strong rally on stock markets.BlackBerry shares tumbled $1.34 or 16.56% to $6.75, its lowest level in a decade, after Fairfax Financial (TSX:FFH) said it will lead a group that will inject US$1 billion into the smartphone company. BlackBerry will stay as a public company. “The fact that the share price is so depressed is really, again, a reflection of the fact there is very little confidence at this point in the story from the market in terms of BlackBerry’s ability to really turn things around in short order,” said Craig Fehr, a Canadian markets specialist at Edward Jones in St. Louis.“It’s going to be more of a show-me story. BlackBerry is going to have to prove that their new strategy is viable.”Fairfax had announced in late September that it would lead a consortium to pay US$9 per share for BlackBerry, a proposed deal that was subject to many conditions.Under this new arrangement, Thorsten Heins will be replaced as BlackBerry CEO on an interim basis by John Chen, who will also be the chairman of the BlackBerry board.The Canadian dollar rose 0.09 of a cent to 95.99 cents US.New York’s Dow Jones industrials climbed 23.57 points to 15,639.12, the Nasdaq was up 14.55 points to 3,936.59 and the S&P 500 index added 6.29 points to 1,767.93.The most important data of the week comes out Friday — October employment data for Canada and the U.S.Economists looked for Canadian job creation to come in at a modest 10,000 with an uptick in the jobless rate from 6.9% to 7%.In the U.S., job creation is expected to come in at only 125,000 for October while the unemployment rate is forecast to rise 0.1 of a point to 7.3%. Analysts say the numbers will be affected by the partial U.S. government shutdown of last month since the data would include private sector workers who were laid off.“Without question, the headline number itself will be less critical because it is going to be distorted by the government shutdown to some degree,” added Fehr.“But I think the broader trend is what the market is going to latch onto.”On Thursday, the U.S. government will release the first look at third quarter economic growth. Gross domestic product was expected to rise by an annualized rate of 1.9%, down from 2.5% in the second quarter, partly because of the uncertainty caused by brinkmanship in Washington over extending the government’s borrowing limit.On Tuesday, the Institute for Supply Management releases its latest snapshot of the American service sector, which is expected to show slightly slower expansion. The ISM index is expected to come in at 54, down from 54.4 in September.The communique from last week’s meeting of the Federal Reserve left the impression that the central bank could decide to start winding up its $85 billion in monthly asset purchases as soon as December.Gold stocks led TSX gainers as December bullion moved ahead $1.50 to US$1,314.70 an ounce. The gold index was up just over 3% as Kinross Gold (TSX:K) moved up 24 cents to C$5.24 while Goldcorp (TSX:G) improved by 75 cents to $26.09.The base metals sector also provided major support, ahead 1.17% while December copper lost five cents to US$3.25 a pound. Lundin Mining (TSX:LUN) rose 17 cents to C$4.78 and Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) was up 37 cents to $28.57.BlackBerry pushed the TSX tech sector down 2.3%. But elsewhere in the sector, Celestica (TSX:CLS) rose 26 cents to $11.52.December crude on the New York Mercantile Exchange gained a penny to US$94.62 a barrel and the energy sector was slightly lower.Meanwhile, investors will take in plenty of earnings reports this week including WestJet (TSX:WJA) on Tuesday, pipeline company Enbridge (TSX:ENB) and auto parts giant Magna International (TSX:MGA) on Wednesday. Thursday is the heaviest day for earnings as traders will hear from Tim Hortons (TSX:THI), BCE (TSX:BCE), Canadian Tire (TSX:CTC.A), Canadian Natural Resources (TSX:CNQ) and insurance giants Sun Life Financial (TSX:SLF), Manulife Financial (TSX:MFC) and Great West Lifeco (TSX:GWO). TOP STORIES‘I’ve seen this movie before’: BlackBerry’s interim chief no stranger to turnaroundsBlackBerry shares will plunge to US$3, analyst says as sale plans cancelledSAC Capital to plead guilty in insider trading case, pay US$1.8-billionVancouver home sales climbing, prices stalledWHAT’S ON DECK TUESDAYECONOMIC NEWSUNITED STATES10 a.m.Non-manufacturing ISM index (Oct): Economists are expecting a reading of 54, about the same as last month CORPORATE NEWSUNITED STATESDelphi Automotive PLC Q3 earnings: Analysts expect 94¢ a share FirstEnergy Q3 earnings: Analysts expect 92¢ Twenty-First Century Fox Inc Q1 earnings: Analysts expect 35¢ IntercontinentalExchange, Inc.

Agreement reached on repatriating 10000 DR of Congo refugees from CAR

The Congolese refugees from Equateur Province have been living in Bangui, CAR’s capital, and a settlement at Molangue, 80 kilometres to the south-west, according to Rupert Colville, the spokesman for the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).UNHCR teams have designated two repatriation routes for voluntary refugees, one from Bangui to a refugee centre in Zongo and another to Batanga, Libenga and Gemena, with new refugee centres to be opened in the latter two towns, he said.

Company director jailed for rape 26 years later after DNA match when

first_imgMark Carnelley Detective Inspector Justine Dakin, of Nottinghamshire Police, said: “This was a terrifying ordeal for the victim. She was frightened Carnelley would use further violence during the attack and was extremely scared throughout the whole incident.”I would like to commend her for the immense bravery she has shown throughout the investigation. She is a truly an incredible women, who has waited almost 27 years for justice to be served.”I hope she can take some comfort from the fact that her attacker has finally been caught and is starting a lengthy prison sentence.”Carnelley was also ordered to sign the Sex Offenders’ Register indefinitely. Mark Carnelley, pictured in police custody, was jailed for seven years after admitting rapeCredit:SWNS Were it not for advances in science you would never have been caught. Thank heavens sometimes for scienceJudge Stuart Rafferty QC Passing sentence, Judge Stuart Rafferty QC told Carnelley: “You are 52 years of age. Halfway through your life. Not a young man, not a teenager, but halfway through your life. At the age of 26 you did something absolutely unforgivable.  “As the time went by you simply confined her and that night to memory. Were it not for advances in science you would never have been caught. Thank heavens sometimes for science.”  The judge added that after the attack Carnelley had rebuilt his life, had children he was proud of, and forged a career. But he said Carnelley’s victim “had nothing” because of what he did to her.  Ian Way, defending, said: “This is a 26-year-old case and the defendant is a very different person to the person he was then.” He told the court Carnelley had “no specific recollection of this incident”, but had acknowledged the weight of the case against him and pleaded guilty. Mr Way added that Carnelley had worked hard since leaving school at the age of 16. Mark Carnelley arriving at Nottingham Crown Court Credit:Nottingham Post/SWNScenter_img Mark Carnelley A businessman has been jailed for raping a woman 26 years ago after police linked him to the crime when he was arrested and had his DNA taken following a row with a group of rowdy teenagers outside his £500,000 home.Mark Carnelley, a company director, believed he had got away with the violent attack in September 1990 that saw him grab and threaten his victim as she walked alone before frogmarching her to an alleyway.  The 52-year-old went on to start a family and run a successful business in the printing industry with his wife that turned six-figure profits.But Carnelley was brought to justice after he complained about a group of noisy youths by his five-bedroom detached home in Gamston, Nottingham, in 2010. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. He was arrested on suspicion of assaulting one of the teenagers and released with a caution. However, a sample of his DNA was taken and stored on the national database.Five years later, DNA taken from his victim was tested with up-to-date techniques during a review of unsolved crimes – and threw up a match to Carnelley.He initially denied raping the woman, who was 25 in 1990, a year younger than her attacker, and a trial date was set.  But Carnelley changed his plea to guilty and was jailed for seven years at Nottingham Crown Court on Tuesday.  After the hearing was told the probability of the DNA not being his was less than one in a billion, a judge told him: “Thank heavens for science.”David Allen, prosecuting, described how Carnelley had pulled his lone victim into an alleyway in Nottingham city centre on the night of September 14, 1990, claiming he had a knife – although no weapon was ever found.He raped the woman and threatened to hurt her before fleeing. In a statement read out in court, she said: “It made me feel like I wanted to rip my insides out and my body didn’t belong to me anymore. I never got over what happened to me.” last_img read more

POC If there was ever an Irish team capable of beating New

first_img“YOU HAVE TO do nearly everything right, all the time.”Ireland take on a New Zealand side this afternoon that Paul O’Connell believes are ‘out on their own’ as the world’s best team. The Irish captain believes his side will have to produce the greatest ever performance to remind the All Blacks what defeat tastes like.Ireland will be hoping the prove that the 28th time is the charm against a team they have never beaten and who possess a fondness to hand out beatings if the mood fits and the offloads stick.Coach Joe Schmidt told his players what they could not afford to do against Australia — no easy rides at scrum and lineout time and no aimless kicks to their back three. Ireland failed to tick any of those boxes and were second best for most of a torrid evening in Dublin; losing out 32-15 and looking flat.O’Connell told TheScore.ie exactly how his team need to gain early traction against New Zealand. “We need to start the game accurately and get ourselves into the game and get a foothold in the game,” he said. “Then, we need to defend well and defend aggressively. If we can do those two things well, like we didn’t last week, we’ll be setting ourselves up for a good start.” He added: We spoke about the opportunity of creating history. It’s something we addressed very early on in the week. Joe has spoken about it. If there’s ever an Irish team that is capable of doing it, that I’ve been on, I think it’s this one. We’re an excellent side with a lot of talent that just isn’t playing well at the moment. That needs to stop somewhere.”The confidence visibly seeped from the team after Quade Cooper jinked through the Irish defence for Australia’s third try last weekend. Injury worries to three key players — Jonny Sexton, Rob Kearney and Brian O’Driscoll — threatened morale further but the trio have been deemed fit to start. The triple boost has definitely helped when it comes to belief that a famous result may be possible.O’Connell commented, “Anytime you look across [the pitch] and see Brian O’Driscoll, Jonny Sexton, Sean O’Brien, Jamie Heaslip, Cian Healy — these guys on your team — belief isn’t a problem.”O’Connell believes Ireland need ‘that big performance to become that team that we can become’. Presumably, the captain means one that will challenge for Six Nations titles, occasionally knock off a southern hemisphere side and can, with realistic expectations, target a best ever performance at the 2015 World Cup.The captain said, “We’ve been far from producing our best in recent games. That’s what we need to get to; we need to focus on ourselves… we need to produce our best performance all across the pitch, one to 15. Players coming off the bench need to make an impact.”Like rugby?

More Greeks calling Australia home

first_imgImmigration Minister Brendan O’Connor told Neos Kosmos this week that despite his personal advocacy for a Working Holiday Visa agreement between Australia and Greece, no firm date could be predicted for its introduction. “It’s not up to me, it’s up to whoever’s making decisions in Greece,” said Mr O’Connor. “We’re continuing our discussions with Greece to establish the visa arrangement, but it’s not a unilateral decision, it’s a bilateral agreement.” The Minister said that such a scheme, offering young Australian and Greek tourists the chance to visit and work in each other’s countries has his full support, but that “complex negotiations” to deliver the agreement had not yet run their course. “We need to get them right and there needs to be agreement by both countries,” said the minister. “My personal view is that I’d like to see the realisation of these negotiations to ensure the agreement. It would be fitting for holiday makers from Greece to come here and have limited work rights. We have a very strong relationship.” The minister declined to say if the agreement might come into effect within this parliament, such is the uncertainty around the deliberations between Immigration Department officials and their counterparts in Athens. The Australian government has been engaged in protracted discussions with Greece for years on establishing a reciprocal Working Holiday Visa arrangement. The economic crisis and legislative hold-ups are likely to have been factors in the Greek government dragging its feet on finalising its side of the deal. Asked if Australia’s current immigration policy could ease the path of Greek nationals wishing to migrate to down under, Mr O’Connor said that because of the non-discriminatory approach enshrined in Australia’s immigration policy, it was not possible to make Greece a special case. “We have about 190,000 people who migrate permanently each year, two-thirds of them are under the skilled migration scheme and have to have particular skills and proficiency in English, the other third relates to family reunions – which adds a very important social dimension to our immigration policy. “Greeks are coming here on either a permanent pathway for citizenship or on a temporary basis and we treat all people the same,” he said. “We would expect to see an increase in migration from a country when things are tough in that country, and Greece is of course doing it very tough at the moment.” The minister pointed to the Parent visa scheme as being one of the government’s most popular recent interventions that benefit diaspora communities in Australia. “We did reach an agreement, that was announced last year, where parents can enter Australia for 12 months on five occasions over five years.” Asked what trends in the last three years the Department of Immigration had been able to identify, in terms of migration from Greece, Mr O’Connor said that there had been a “mild increase”, according to the latest data. In the 2011-12 financial year the number of Greek citizens who permanently migrated to Australia was 325, compared to 119 in 2009-10 and 134 in 2010-11. In the last six months of 2012, 241 Greek nationals were given permanent residency. In 2011-12, 587 Greeks were successful in applying for temporary student visas to study in Australia, with another 415 being awarded student visas in the last six months of 2012. Business (457 visas) and other temporary visas accounted for 389 Greeks entering Australia in the last financial year, and looks set to remain at a similar level this year. Temporary tourist and visitor visas – allowing short stays (usually a maximum of three months) continue to be the most common method for Greek nationals to enter Australia. In 2011-12, 7938 Greeks came to Australia on temporary offshore visitors. In the last six months of 2012 just over 5000 had taken the same route to enter the country. Since introducing reforms to the 457 temporary skilled worker visa scheme, Minister O’Connor and the Gillard government has been criticised for suggesting the 457 scheme was prone to widespread rorting and potentially denying Australians work. Commentators have claimed the government’s crackdown has been motivated to build populist appeal in the run up to the election. The minister told Neos Kosmos that it is an accusation he firmly rejects. “The reforms come out of the department’s analysis and were recommended to my predecessor Chris Bowen last year. This conspiracy theory about them is wrong,” he said. “All we’re looking to do is make sure there are no rorts so that the confidence in the scheme is not undermined. “We will always need temporary skilled labour but it should be genuine. The reforms are about ensuring Australians are offered jobs first before they’re offered elsewhere.” Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Lagroécologie pourrait permettre de protéger la planète

first_imgL’agroécologie pourrait permettre de protéger la planèteUn rapport de l’Onu publié mardi estime que le développement de l’agroécologie (méthode basée sur le renouvellement des sols) peut permettre d’améliorer les rendements dans les régions les plus pauvres tout s’adaptant au réchauffement climatique.”A ce jour, les projets agroécologiques ont montré une augmentation moyenne des rendements de 80% dans 57 pays en développement, avec une augmentation moyenne de 116% pour tous les projets africains”, a affirmé à l’AFP Olivier de Schutter, rapporteur spécial de l’Onu pour le droit à l’alimentation et auteur du rapport. “La science dit aujourd’hui que les méthodes agroécologiques sont meilleures que l’utilisation d’engrais chimiques pour accroître la production agricole dans les régions où sévit la faim”, ajoute-t-il. Grâce à cette méthode, les petits agriculteurs de certaines régions du monde pourraient doubler leur production d’ici à 10 ans, estime le rapport de l’Onu. Alors que les prix alimentaires mondiaux ont battu un nouveau record en février selon la FAO (l’organisation de l’Onu pour l’alimentation et l’agriculture), la question de l’accès à ces denrées alimentaires reste brûlante avec la perspective d’une planète comptant 9 milliards d’habitants en 2050.Par ailleurs, l’urgence de limiter l’impact de l’homme sur les éco-systèmes est mis en avant et le rapport estime que “l’agroécologie peut jouer un rôle central”. Cette méthode comprend “le recyclage des nutriments et de l’énergie dans l’exploitation, plutôt que l’introduction d’apports extérieurs ; l’intégration des cultures et du bétail ; la diversification des espèces et des ressources génétiques dans l’écosystème agricole dans le temps et l’espace”. Grâce à l’agroécologie, les terres supporteraient ensuite mieux les phénomènes de sécheresse ou d’inondations. De plus, les sols stockeraient mieux le carbone, selon l’Onu.Cependant, la méthode est “encore insuffisamment appuyée par des politiques publiques ambitieuses et va donc rarement au-delà du stade expérimental”, regrette Olivier de Schutter.Le 10 mars 2011 à 11:20 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

BSO deputy suspect injured in Pompano Beach shooting

first_imgThey have hired a civil rights attorney.Protests followed Friday’s shooting and a new protocol for police-involved shootings has been put in place. Israel said the Florida Department of Law Enforcement will investigate Friday’s shooting, as well as all police-involved shooting investigations moving forward.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. “The driver of the vehicle backed his vehicle in to strike our deputy. Our deputy, fearing for his life, actually dove back into his marked unit,” Israel said. “Another deputy fired at least one round at the subject. The subject put his car in drive and eventually bailed out of his vehicle, where you see it now.”After BSO police set up a perimeter, the suspect was found and taken into custody.According to Pompano Beach Fire Rescue, the subject, 17-year-old Dalvin Williams, was shot in the shoulder and transported to Broward Health North. He was treated and later released.The subject was charged with aggravated battery on a law enforcement officer and grand theft, according to police.The deputy was not shot, but did suffer a minor leg injury at the 1600 block of Martin Luther King Boulevard. Although the deputy was alert and conscious as he spoke with Pompano Beach Fire Rescue, he was transported to Imperial Point Medical center as a precaution.The incident comes three days after, BSO said, officers were forced to shoot and kill a knife-wielding man in Pompano Beach. The agency responded, Friday, to an apparent domestic disturbance, about a mile away from Monday’s scene.The family of Gregory Frazier, who was killed in that shooting, put out a statement that read, “Rest assured, we are working diligently with our legal team to determine why police felt the need to execute him as he ate his supper in the backyard of his house rather than use negotiation tactics.” POMPANO BEACH, FLA. (WSVN) – The Broward Sheriff’s Office is investigating a deputy-involved shooting in Pompano Beach that sent a suspect to the hospital and left a deputy hurt.According to the Broward Sheriff’s Office, a license plate reader identified a stolen gold sedan along the 800 block of Hammondville Road. Once a deputy pulled the car over, chaos ensued.BSO said the deputy exited his marked vehicle in order to conduct the traffic stop when the subject, who was driving the gold sedan, backed his vehicle into the deputy’s vehicle.“I heard a bang, bang!” said witness Will Stiles. “I looked up and saw a tan vehicle doing 360s and white smoke was coming out, so I started to run over to see if the person was OK.”Unbeknownst to Stiles, he was approaching a suspect driving a stolen vehicle.Once this happened, the deputy dove back into his marked unit, fearful for his life, according to Sheriff Scott Israel in a news conference.Then, another deputy fired at least one round at the subject. The subject then put his car in drive, drove off and eventually bailed out of his vehicle on Martin Luther King Boulevard, trying to get away on foot. last_img read more

DEC Finds Elevated Bacteria Levels On Kenai River Beaches

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) collected water quality samples on Kenai Beaches, on July 3 and 13, that contained levels above Alaska’s enterococci and fecal coliform bacteria limit for recreation and harvesting for consumption of raw fish and shellfish. Sonafrank: “The high bacteria had been found during previous fisheries and we think it’s mostly related to nearby seagulls that are feeding off of the fish as well.”  According to SonaFrank, contact with water impacted by enterococci or fecal coliform bacteria may cause stomach aches, diarrhea, or ear, eye, and skin infections. As always, people should cook seafood to a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees Fahrenheit to destroy pathogens, according to the DEC. Until sample results meet water quality standards and DEC lifts this advisory, people should take precautionary measures when recreating. The next sampling is scheduled for this week with results available on July 23. Nancy Sonafrank, Division of Water: “DEC recommends beach users take normal precautions to avoid exposure, such as avoiding swimming in the water, washing after contact with the water, and rinsing fish with clean water after they have been harvested from the area.” This year DEC has planned monitoring and sampling from June through early September. Recently collected samples indicated elevated levels of enterococci bacteria in the marine water at the South and North Kenai River Beaches.last_img read more

Best live TV streaming services: Ditch your cable company but keep the live channels and DVR. Tags $125 at Amazon For less than $30 (although it runs for $40 on the Wahl website), this percussive massager allows you to adjust the percussion massage intensity from light to intense, and it comes with four unique attachment heads to provide super-targeted deep tissue massage relief. The only downside to this device is that it uses a cord, not batteries, so it’s not very portable. What buyers say: One reviewer called it the “best hand-held massager I’ve ever had,” and went on to say, “I have had IT band syndrome in my right leg and this massager has made a huge difference in my ability to move without pain.” Best quiet massage gun Theragun G3 Pro Share your voice $200 at Amazoncenter_img The Theragun G3 Pro is expensive, but it’s received high praise from professional athletes in a wide range of sports, from basketball to CrossFit to golf. It’s high-powered and efficient, delivering a max force tissue massage of 60 pounds at 40 beats per second.If you are looking to save some money, there are also two cheaper models, the G3 for $399 and the Liv for $299.What buyers say: “If you’re thinking about buying this, GET IT!” This reviewer continued, “I got it to get over chronic tightness in my back and hamstrings. It’s better than I hoped! … Bottom line: get it. You won’t be sorry.” Best massage gun for ergonomics This percussive massager combines heat therapy and dual pivoting heads for serious deep tissue massage relief for aches and pains.

What buyers say: “This is the best purchase I have ever made for back and neck pain! I have bought moist heat pads, inversion table, lumbar braces, etc, but this is by far the best item for relieving discomfort.” Homedics The TimTam Power Massager delivers a powerful percussion therapy similar to that of Theragun, but at a fraction of the price. This TimTam model would be great for people who exercise intensely and experience muscle soreness often but don’t quite have the budget for a Theragun.

It’s not expensive enough to give you sticker shock, but it still delivers professional massager quality percussive therapy of up to 3,700 beats per minute. It’s compact, cordless and lightweight (just 1.75 pounds), making it great for travel. On top of that, it comes with six attachment heads, including a facial massage stick. It takes one hour to charge the Purewave’s battery, which lasts for 180 minutes, or 20 to 30 minutes of use each day for a week. What buyers say: Even professional massage therapists love this one, with one saying, “I love these so much that I use one in my practice and I also sell them. I looked for a long time, to find a massager that really had some punch to it and was a decent price. I found that with Pure Wave. It has great, adjustable percussive strength” Best budget massage gun A common theme within Amazon reviews for percussive therapy devices seems to be something along the lines of: “I love this, but it’s loud.” A few reviews on the Theragun and TimTam even mention that the devices frighten their pets. Hyperice set out to solve that with the Hypervolt, which uses patented technology to reduce noise for a more relaxing massage experience. A quieter massage therapy gun might be the best choice for you if you actually want to relax while using it. What buyers say: “I had to try someone else’s before I would fork out the dough but I’m super glad we did. Works amazing on my shoulders and my wife’s lower back. We sleep better, travel better, and just feel better using this thing a couple times a week.” What to look for in a percussive massage gun Speed and power: If you work out a lot and often experience soreness or pain, you should opt for a massage gun with at least two adjustable speed and power settings — one being less intense so you can still use the gun on very sore muscles where you are experiencing muscle pain. Type of motion: Do you want just vibration, vibration plus thumping, vibration plus a circular motion, or some other combination? When shopping for a massage gun, make sure to take note of how the device delivers the therapy. Portability: If you’re going to be traveling with your massage gun, you’ll want one that can easily fit into a bag or suitcase. Though most are indeed handheld massagers, some units are rather bulky but there are a number of small, portable massage guns designed to be taken on the road.Attachments and accessories: Where on your body will you use the massage gun? If you’ll only use it on just your large muscles, such as your back and legs, you probably don’t need many attachments or accessories. But if you intend to use it on specific areas, such as the arch of your foot, you’d benefit from attachments intended for those specific areas. Battery life: A long battery life is always beneficial. The last thing you want is for your massage gun to die when you need it most. Cost: Of course, you’ll want to look for a therapeutic massager device within your budget. The most expensive massage guns usually offer more speed, power and motion settings. Less expensive massage guns might only come with one mode, but can still be effective.

Best massage gun for everyday exercisers Purewave CM7 Percussion + Vibration Therapy Massager $28 at Amazon The Thumper massager features a long (16-inch) design that makes it easy to target hard-to-reach spots like in between your shoulder blades. A common issue with self-massagers is that you must use your muscles to massage them, which is pretty counterintuitive and not at all like a massage chair. Thumper’s design reduces the amount of effort you actually have to put into moving the massager around your body. What buyers say: One reviewer said, “I can’t write enough adjectives that describe how I feel about this!!! AMAZING comes close to describing how I feel after using it, but I actually feel better than that.” Theragun If you follow any athletes online, there’s a good chance you’ve seen enthralling videos of their muscles rippling under the pressure of a vibrating self-massager  or massage gun via a recovery technique called “percussive therapy” or “percussion massage” and wondered what those massage guns actually do, if they work and, most importantly, what a massage gun might do for you.Everyone from professional athletes to recreational gym-goers to those with chronic pain touts the benefits of massage guns and percussive therapy: speedier recovery, reduced muscle soreness and lactic acid build-up which could mean less pain, improved range of motion, better blood circulation and more.

Bethel fire chief says BIA building could burn for up to two

first_imgAn abandoned Bureau of Indian Affairs building on the outskirts of Bethel caught fire on April 15, 2018. (Photo by Teresa Cotsirilos/ KYUK)An abandoned Bureau of Indian Affairs school building on the outskirts of Bethel caught fire Sunday morning and could burn for a long time.Listen nowBethel Fire Chief Bill Howell said that the fire was reported to his department around 7 a.m. on Sunday morning. Given the state of the blaze when they got there, he suspects that the building had already been burning for several hours. Howell has decided to let the fire burn itself out, which he said could take another two days.“We’re not interested in risking our firefighters’ lives to save an abandoned building,” Howell said.Howell said this fire isn’t a risk to the community. The abandoned building is a good 10-minute drive from Bethel’s city center and people aren’t living or squatting nearby. Howell said that there’s no real risk of the fire spreading; the nearby brush has been cleared, the trees are damp, and the building is ringed by two feet of snow. But the fire has chewed its way through the BIA building’s roof, so it would be dangerous for Howell’s crew to fight it. The best thing to do, he said, is just let the building be consumed.The derelict building complex used to be home to a BIA school. Howell says that the fire started near the old cafeteria, and that the building has already caught fire at least once in the past, in 2001. The building was also rife with asbestos, which Howell said was cleared out by the federal government over 15 years ago.Still, Howell said, “I would encourage the public to stay away from the site. The site is not secure.”The Bethel Fire Department doesn’t know how the fire started, but Howell suspects that it was caused by humans. He doesn’t know yet if it was set intentionally or not.last_img read more

elizaberman@timecomWarning: This post contains spoilers for the sixth season of Game of Thrones For years fans have levied criticism against Game of Thrones’ treatment of women from the unnecessary frequent nudity to the graphic sexual assault of main characters After Sansa’s rape by Ramsay Bolton last year sent the Internet over the edge (and led some high profile fans to flee the show) the creators promised that this season would be the year of the women Last night they delivered on that promise with the long-awaited “Battle of the Bastards” though some of the victories came at the expense of logic Let’s review: Daenerys demonstrated the firepower of her dragons and plotted with Yara to break Westeros’ glass (iron) ceiling twice over And Sansa got to smile for the first time in years when she arrived to save the day with Littlefinger’s army and then again when Ramsay’s dogs ripped his face off In a show that loves to play with moral ambiguity these were objectively “good” events The writers kept things simple by sidelining the more ethically complicated female figuresCersei Margaery and Melisandre Instead they delivered our heroines Daenerys and Sansa Yara too has proven herself honorable by trying to save Theon when he was imprisoned by Ramsay and looks even better when contrasted with her crazed uncle The clear message: Women rule And let us pause for a second to say “Good” The show’s producers didn’t have to respond to the cacophony of criticism But they did Remember Sansa isn’t raped in the books and thus probably won’t be the one to kill Ramsay Her suffering and revenge is all the show’s creation While the events of the episode certainly did not justify last year’s rape scene or the way in which it was shot emphasizing Theon’s suffering as a witness rather than Sansa’s as a victim “Battle of the Bastards” did give Dany and Sansa the sorts of heroic moments that have largely been reserved for men on television But it felt a little forced Logic fell by the wayside in order for these moments to happen Did Dany and the Dothraki apparate to Meereen And wait the dragons could just break out of the cave all along Even if they broke out now because they sensed their mother and brother were home why didn’t they let themselves loose earlier to grab some grub The plot twist in Winterfell was even more problematic Why wouldn’t Sansa tell Jon about sending the raven to Littlefinger for help Some fans have floated theories Maybe she didn’t know Littlefinger was comingbut of course he was he’s in love with her Maybe she was bitter at Jon for not listening to her advicebut it doesn’t seem like throwing that fit is worth costing thousands of men their lives Maybe she wanted to employ the element of surprisebut Sansa herself said in the episode she knows nothing of military strategy Maybe it was Littlefinger’s ideabut why would Sansa trust Littlefinger more than Jon after Littlefinger pawned her off to a sadistic husband Indeed Sansa would not even have had to swoop in and save Jon in the first place had Jon a supposedly deft commander not fallen for Ramsay’s obvious trap the very same trap Sansa had warned him about the night before There’s simply no rational reason only a dramatic one: The writers wanted to give Sansa her moment Game of Thrones has been building to this peak for a long time Dany’s ascension and Arya’s training montage felt endless but the seeds were planted long ago Think of the moment between Daenerys and Yara as they bonded over their bad dads The women of this show have suffered in a way that the men will never know and that’s exactly what will make them better rulers More accurately Game of Thrones has been the story of the downtrodden rising up The kings are dead The characters who have survived are those that were underestimated abused pushed down: A bastard a war bride a dwarf a piratethe list goes on The world of Thrones has been much criticized for its characterization of women as lesser citizens but here is the payoff as the meek inherit the earth My guess is George RR Martin’s books will eventually end up with similar victories for women But Martin’s path has always been long and circuitous whereas the show is now taking short cuts to race to the end (There are just two truncated seasons left) And with a massive attentive tweeting audience the show must contend with week-to-week criticisms about the treatment of women in a way that Martin does not So if the girl power moments felt contrived they were If the failings of the men blinded by their own pridethe slavers Theon Jon and Ramsayfelt obvious they were But perhaps this is a place where the show needs to be blunt: Women are capable of rule more capable than their narrow-sighted male counterparts
