first_imgProfessional basketball player LeBron James was born into a struggling household in Akron Ohio until his mother sent him to live with a local coach.Fortunately for James, the coach introduced the boy to basketball, which was the first step in James becoming a basketball superstar.Remembering his beginnings, James has turned his attention back to Akron, where he is determined to donate the funds required to support its high school graduates through college through the LeBron James Family Foundation.Growing up in the inner city, James says that a lot of African American kids don’t think past high school because college is not on their families’ financial horizon. To change that reality around, James is providing four-year scholarships to cover tuition and the University of Akron’s general service fee, about $9,500 per year for about 1,100 kids, amounting to almost $42 million.“These students have big dreams, and I’m happy to do everything I can to help them get there,” says James. “They’re going to have to earn it, but I’m excited to see what these kids can accomplish knowing that college is in their futures.”It will be five years before the first kids receive their scholarships and arrive on campus in 2021.“It’s the reason I do what I do,” says James.Copyright ©2016Look to the Starslast_img read more

The Secretary-General’s Personal Representative Matthew Nimetz met today with the parties in Ohrid in the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, according to a statement issued after the talks. Antonio Milososki, that country’s Foreign Minister, participated.Mr. Nimetz described the negotiations as “characterized by a full and open discussion and a willingness by the parties to seriously listen to their counterparts’ positions. There was agreement to maintain momentum by having the next meeting in a few weeks in Greece.”The Interim Accord of 13 September 1995, which was brokered by the UN, details the difference between the two countries regarding the official name of the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. It also obliges the two sides to continue negotiations under the auspices of the UN Secretary-General to try to reach agreement on their dispute. 21 January 2008Greece and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia today held United Nations-led talks over the official name of the latter country and related outstanding issues – the first time such discussions have been held in the region and involved the participation of one of the two nations’ foreign ministers. read more

first_img2010 is barely over and here’s a 2013 car already: the new Ford Taurus, unveiled just in advance of the 2011 New York International Auto Show. It’s a full-size car loaded with technology including a 31 mpg, four-cylinder turbocharged engine; self-parking; the MyFord Touch update of Ford Sync; torque vectoring for better stability while cornering; low-cost adaptive cruise control (about $1,000, not $2,500); capacitive touch center stack controls; and SD Card navigation for around $800. It will ship early in 2012 and be a 2013 model. Ford Rolls the Dice: Turbo Four in a Full-Size CarThe most important change is Ford’s decision to put a turbocharged four-cylinder engine in a full-size car. Conventional wisdom says buyers of full-size cars tend to want big engines with lots of cylinders. Ford hopes they’ve got open minds. The new Ecoboost (Ford’s word for turbocharging) has two specs that will scare traditionalists – just four cylinders and 2.0 liters displacement  – and three that should be reassuring – 237 hp, 250 pound-feet of torque, and 31 mpg highway rating on regular fuel. If not the Ecoboost four, Ford will continue with a normally aspirated (that is, no turbo) producing 290 hp. Nice Inside, Same Slab Siding Outside At a private press briefing Monday in New York in advance of the official press unveiling Tuesday night in anticipation of the 2013 Taurus’ public unveiling at the auto show at Javits Center Wednesday during the press-only days, Ford flacks scowled at editors attempting to snap photos, so what you see here is from the Ford media kit, and it shows the exterior from its best angles. From square-on, the Taurus’ slab siding bears a separated-at-birth likeness to the Merrimac, of Civil War Monitor-and-Merrimac ironclad fame. It’s a lot better looking inside. Capacitive Touch Center Stack The controls in the center stack other than the knobs will be capacitive touch, meaning it’s a smooth surface, illuminated from behind. Touch the outline of the button to close the circuit and activate the function; the surface can pop back or vibrate slightly to let you know you pressed the button. Other tech-inspired elements carry forward from recently released Ford models. The instrument panel includes a pair of 4.2-inch color LCDs to display information. On navigation-equipped cars there’ll be an 8-inch touchscreen LCD panel in the center stack. Navigation will be supplied by Telenav and come in the form of an SD card you plug in to a slot in the center console alongside two (not one) USB jacks and a set of RCA-jack audio-video inputs. Ford Sync continues with its voice input (by Nuance), Gracenote lookup of song information, and free emergency crash notification using your cellphone rather than an embedded, fee-based telematics solution. Ford continues its relationship with Sony for premium audio, forgoing fancier names (Bose, Harman/Kardon) for a name that has worked in the past and remains admired by most motorists other than the fanatic fringe who’d rather see tube amplifiers in the trunk. Many Changes Make the Taurus New, Not Necessarily All-New This appears to be is a mid-life refresh for the Taurus, meaning it’s an adaptation of the fully redone and resurrected Taurus that appeared in 2009/2010, and puts Ford on a glide path to deliver a true next-generation Taurus circa 2015. Ford is being hailed in some circles for doing this so quickly, three years, which would match the fastest Japanese-car model replacements, but if it’s the mid-life refresh rather than an all-new model, then three years is not unusual. Ford made changes to improve the suspension and braking. Ford’s version of torque vectoring brakes the inside front wheel in a turn to allow the outside wheel to overdrive the car through the corner; this is a more profound effect than provided by the differential alone. The Taurus also adds curve control, not a fitness center targeting women but controlled braking assist when the driver goes into a corner faster than might be safe. Ford says curve control can wipe off an extra 10 mph in one second. In the meantime, Ford continues to make most of its technology available for far less than on a luxury German or Japanese cars (thousand-dollar adaptive cruise control is a good example) and most of it works (active parking from Ford vs. the first attempts by Lexus). The hefty side-view styling remains. A big mesh grille distinguishes the 2013 Taurus from the current model, along with LED taillamps, different headlamps, and reworking of the front hood and rear decklid. According to Taurus chief designer Gordon Platto, all this gives the Taurus – stop us if you’ve heard this before – a look that is “aggressive yet subtle … [with] a more muscular, athletic stance.”Taurus SHO Checks Back in with 365 HPThe top of the Taurus line will be the Taurus SHO with a turbocharged V6 that raises power from 237 hp (Taurus Ecoboost four) to 290 hp (standard Taurus V6) to 365 hp. That’s the Taurus SHO grille in the adjacent photo.last_img read more

first_imgPrime Minister Alexis Tsipras is to meet with German Chancellor Angela Merkel Thursday in Brussels in a bid to secure a statement of political support from Berlin amid tough negotiations with creditors and dwindling finances.The meeting, which is to take place on the sidelines of a European Union leaders’ emergency meeting on immigration, was announced in a brief statement from Tsipras’s office. The move came amid reports that negotiations taking place in Paris between Greek government officials and representatives of the creditors had made some small progress but remained far from securing a deal that could unlock crucial rescue funding.In comments to reporters in Athens Tuesday, Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis said he was confident an agreement would be reached soon while admitting that no breakthrough was likely at a meeting of his eurozone counterparts in Riga, Latvia, later this week.“There will be a deal, a comprehensive agreement,” he said. “But this does not mean that there will be an agreement at Friday’s Eurogroup.” “There is clear convergence,” he added, noting however that the International Monetary Fund “was demanding the deregulation of the labour market,” which he said has already been hit hard.A government source told Kathimerini that “ground has been covered” in talks but admitted that “the progress… is not enough for Riga.” Sources said Athens is aiming for a deal before the next scheduled Eurogroup after Riga – a meeting in Brussels on May 11 – with the possibility of an extraordinary Eurogroup toward the end of next week.Varoufakis is expected to face a cool reception in Riga, particularly from his German counterpart Wolfgang Schaeuble, who has repeated warnings for Greece to push reforms and Tuesday indicated that no fresh loans will be released unless a deal is reached in the coming weeks, with June 30 being the ultimate deadline when Greece’s four-month bailout extension ends.Other European officials also expressed concern, notably European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker, who said he was “absolutely not satisfied with the course of talks so far.”“There is urgent need for greater efforts on the Greek side,” he said. “The intensity of talks has increased in the past four or five days but is not yet at the maturity needed to be able to reach a quick conclusion.” He said Greece should not be abandoned but added that it cannot be supported “at any price.”Eurogroup President Jeroen Dijsselbloem, for his part, said a Greek eurozone exit was “not an option.”Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

first_imgIt’s kind of like Uber or Airbnb for health care, Dr. Steve Baker likes to say.The outside-the-box thinking that’s changed the way people hail rides, book rooms and watch television works similarly to the way Main Street Family Medicine in Vancouver will provide health care. As the slogan of Baker’s practice goes, it’s “Modern medicine, the old-fashioned way.”Similar to a gym membership, Main Street Family Medicine in Vancouver provides primary care to its patients for a flat monthly out-of-pocket fee.The cost is $70 a month for ages 19 through 44; $85 a month for ages 45 through 64; $15 a month for ages newborn to 18 years with an enrolled parent; $30 a month for ages newborn through 18 without an enrolled parent; and $30 a month for ages 19 through 24 with an enrolled parent. The idea is called direct primary care and it’s growing, with more than 620 practices in the U.S., according to the Direct Primary Care Coalition.“We saw a big need in the community,” Baker, 57, said of his practice, which opened in late July. “There’s a group of people who make too much money to get government programs, but they don’t make enough money to afford to pay out of pocket for health insurance. They want to pay their own way. They’re not looking for a handout. But they’re just kind of stuck in the middle.”Baker has been practicing medicine in Vancouver for 23 years, and for the past 17 he’s taught doctors as part of a family medical residency program through the University of Washington and PeaceHealth.Right now Baker has about 40 patients, and only works the practice part time with three nurses, who together make up full-time coverage. His goal is to have 350 patients, and possibly in time add another part-time doctor so the practice can see around 700 patients. But keeping the patient base small is important for Main Street Family Medicine. Each first visit is always an hour long.last_img read more

first_imgEmployee Benefits Connect 2016: Reward and benefit strategies will need to adapt to the changing workplace landscape if they are to meet the evolving requirements of the future workforce.Speaking in the closing keynote session titled ‘What is the digital future of the workplace and how different will it be?’ at Employee Benefits Connect on 9 March, Perry Timms, director, people and learning at Medio Zoo, adviser to the Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development on social media, and founder of People and Transformational HR, explained what future innovations are likely to impact work and employees’ expectations. These range from the development of advanced robotics and artificial intelligence to the growth of alternative currencies and the gig economy. Other phenomena include the convergence of biology and technology for human augmentation, the development of synthetic beings to carry out work deemed unpleasant or dangerous, and how access to information uploads could allow people to think differently as the time and brain power required to recall information is reduced.Timms (pictured), said: “There’s something about how quickly these sorts of things are coming and taking over that means we need to pay heed to them.”Employees’ demands and expectations are also evolving, moving away from traditional concepts such as control, management and key performance indicators (KPIs), towards their own sense of value of the work that they perform. However, Timms does not believe these changing attitudes can only be found among younger generations.He said: “I don’t believe that generation Y is radically different from generation X. I think what’s happening is that [generation Y employees] are entering the workforce as the workplace is changing and as a result they have different views on things, and are connected and have operated in a slightly different way.”The tools that futurologists use can help employers to consider how the workplace will look in the future and how benefits approaches could adapt to embrace these changes. The primary tools include the analysis of data, examining the past and historical cycles, modelling scenarios, and searching for asymmetries.Timms said: “There’s a huge amount of predictive data out there now. We’ve got an enormous amount of data we can tap into about demographic shifts, about economic trends, about all sorts of areas, such as where people are spending their time and their habits. So we can use data to predict the future.“Asymmetries is the interesting concept that the future is already here, it’s just not in one place. Futurologists who know where to look know that there are already places pushing the boundaries and developing and delivering a future proposition,” he added.During the session, Timms set out his theory of the future of the work landscape. This includes seven elements: the digitalisation and socialisation of work; the decline of the job; the demise of the manager; the death of the hierarchy; the democratisation of learning; the disruption of the usual; the demand for craft.“HR needs to get itself fit for a digital age,” said Timms.This means looking beyond monetary rewards. He said: “You need to think about reward in an anthropological sense; how are we as human beings constructed and what can the reward industry do that gets into things like health and wellbeing, mental health and education.”He added: “Be as imaginative as possible with rewards. Be a reward explorer – look at what other people are doing.”last_img read more

first_imgMirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir. File photoBangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Saturday called upon the government to immediately intensify its diplomatic efforts to resolve the Rohingya crisis and force Myanmar to take back its citizens taken shelter in Bangladesh, reports UNB.Speaking at a discussion programme, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir alleged that the current government has so far failed to take any right decision on Rohingya issues as it remains ‘enchained’.“You (govt) couldn’t take any correct decision on the Rohingya issue as you’re enchained. Even, you can’t take any decision on your own… the country’s people and we want the Rohingya crisis to be solved immediately,” he said.The BNP leader further said, “We also want the fleeing Rohingyas to be given shelter, food and healthcare. We demand the government strengthen its diplomatic efforts so that Rohingyas can be repatriated to their country with dignity.”BNP organised the programme at the Institution of Engineers, Bangladesh, marking the party’s 39th founding anniversary.Fakhrul came down hard on Awami League general secretary Obaidul Quader for his comment that BNP is doing ‘foul’ politics over Rohingya issue. “You’re accusing us of doing foul politics as we’re talking about the persecution on Rohingyas.”He said it is Awami League not BNP that has long been indulging in foul politics. “You’ve started doing such politics in 1972 by enacting the Special Power Act, snatching people’s rights, press freedom and establishing one-party politics the 4th amendment.”The BNP secretary general said their party is talking in favour of hapless Rohingyas who are being evicted from their houses, property and motherland as their party’ always does politics for people and humanity.He said though the Indonesian foreign minister and Turkish foreign minister and first lady visited Bangladesh over Rohingya problem, the government is playing a ‘silent’ role in resolving it.Criticising the government for what he said repressing their party men, Fakhrul said the government even obstructed their party’s Friday’s human chain programme on Rohingya issue at different parts of the country.“I would like to ask you why you fear us so much. We know you do it as you know you’ll lose your existence if BNP takes to the streets and joins the next election. We want to say the next election must be held under a non-party supportive government with the participation of all parties.Speaking at the programme, party standing committee member Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain said the government is conspiring to hold another Januar-5, 2014 like election by force keeping BNP out of it.He said the next polls must be held under a non-party supportive government so that people can exercise their right to franchise and all parties can take part in it.The BNP leader said their party chairperson Khaleda Zia will present the framework of the election-time supportive government once she returns home from London completing her medical treatment.Another BNP standing committee member Mirza Abbas said Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi extended his support to Myanmar’s policy to eliminate Rohingya, sending out a message for Bangladesh government not to take any strong stance on Rohingya issue. “Awami League is now not talking anything in favour of Rohingyas.”He said the country’s people have got aggrieved over the government’s silence on Rohingya issue. “If necessary, we’ll call for a long march towards Myanmar. Our stance is clear we can’t allow the neighbouring country to kill people in such a manner.”last_img read more

first_imgNEW YORK (AP) — His face swollen, breathing becoming difficult, Adrian Peterson didn’t panic.Maybe it was his resourcefulness as an elite athlete, or his ability to focus even in the most dire circumstances. But Peterson knew what to do two years ago when a severe allergy attack hit at Vikings training camp.Now, he wants to make sure everyone else knows how to react.Peterson has helped launch an educational program called Ready2Go for people with severe allergies.”It breaks down to two things,” the 2012 NFL Most Valuable Player said Monday.”First thing is being prepared and knowing your allergic triggers and symptoms.Then, having access to injections and using the epi pens.”That’s how Peterson dealt with the reaction called anaphylaxis. He immediately called his athletic trainer, Eric Sugarman — the man who oversaw Peterson’s incredibly quick and productive return from torn knee ligaments — and was fortunate that Sugarman was familiar with such symptoms and had the equipment to deal with them.”Being an athlete played a role in dealing with it,” said Peterson, whose allergic reaction was to shellfish in gumbo — something he’d been eating his entire life.”You have to have an action plan.”Peterson has teamed with the pharmaceutical company Mylan Specialty on the project. As part of the campaign, three youngsters who have such health issues can win a trip to Minnesota’s training camp this summer.Termed the Ready2GoDraft, Mylan will conduct a nationwide search for kids aged 5 through 18 who have severe allergies. The youngsters will share their tips for being prepared in a 30-second video, each of which must mention how the child manages an anaphylaxis action plan.The three winners will participate in a video/photo shoot with the star running back, and will get a trip to Minnesota’s training camp.Peterson, a paid spokesman for Mylan, chuckled when asked if he’d prefer the winners be Vikings or Oklahoma Sooners fans.”They talked me out of it,” he said with a laugh. “It’s nationwide.”And it’s important to Peterson, who related a story about when he was 7 years old and his brother was hit by a car. Peterson held his brother’s head, surveyed the situation, then gently placed his sibling’s head down and sprinted to his aunt’s house to get someone to call 911.He showed focus then in a stressful health situation, and he encourages others to do the same, to learn from him.His Vikings teammates and others in the NFL already are doing so.”When I had my episode, I was able to learn a lesson and be more knowledgeable, and so were they,” he said. “I can give them information based on my experiences and how they can be prepared.”___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFLlast_img read more
