It is clear that we will be facing monumental challenges. But, we must face the world as it is, not as how we wish it to be,” he contended.President Kikwete also voiced his concern over the lack of influence of African and Caribbean states on multilateral institutions governing the global economic, financial and trading architecture.He said that the dominance of the World Bank and International Monetary Fund (IMF) in the affairs of developing countries sometimes undermines their capacity to set and implement their own development priorities. He added that the same could also be said of the European Union’s (EU) Economic Partnership Agreement (EPA) structures.“Globalisation has brought global institutions together in their dealings with developing countries, (more) than ever before. One way to deal with this challenge is to unite, work together and fight together for our rightful share of the globalisation cake administered through these institutions,” he asserted.Noting that alliances in the past focussed on global issues impacting developing countries, President Kikwete said that in the 1960s and 1970s, developing countries were strongly united on many fronts.“We used various institutions then, like the Non-Aligned Movement (NAM), the Group of 77 (G77) and China and the African Caribbean and Pacific (ACP) countries before it was fragmented” he noted.However, he said that changes instituted by multilateral institutions have forced these countries to either negotiate in smaller groups, or individually. He lamented that these changes in the strategies for dealing with developing countries, have left them more fragmented.“We need to appreciate, as a matter of urgency, the fact that our strength lies in our unity. Together we stand and achieve, divided we fall and lose out. We should all endeavour to rekindle the spirit of the past, and forge stronger bonds of co-operation and solidarity through the African Union, Caricom, NAM, G77 and ACP, despite the divisions,” he said.The President’s address was his last official engagement on his three-day State Visit to Jamaica, along with First Lady, Her Excellency Salma Kikwete. They were presented with gifts by campus Principal and Pro Vice Chancellor, Professor Gordon Shirley. They departed for the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Trinidad and Tobago, on Thursday afternoon. Advertisementslast_img read more

Technical and Vocational Training Critical – Thwaites

first_imgRelatedTechnical and Vocational Training Critical – Thwaites Advertisements RelatedTechnical and Vocational Training Critical – Thwaites RelatedTechnical and Vocational Training Critical – Thwaites Technical and Vocational Training Critical – Thwaites EducationMarch 18, 2012 By Chris Patterson, JIS Reporter FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Minister of Education, Rev. the Hon. Ronald Thwaites, said that technical and vocational training are paramount in developing a well-rounded workforce with the capability to meet the demands of the global job market and contribute to nation building. “The statistics tell us that some 80 per cent of the employment opportunities in this generation and more in the next generations to come will require technical and vocational skills,” Mr. Thwaites said. He was speaking on March 15 at the official launch of HEART Trust/NTA’s Southwest Technical Vocational Education and Training Institute (TVET) in Newport, Manchester. The Education Minister said that while practical and vocational skills are often looked on unfavourably, the local and international jobs markets are demanding persons with such training. He suggested that traditional learning should be coupled with technical and vocational training. “We are recognising the significance of all aspects of education, not just the classical variety that is offered at traditional high schools. We are recognising that this world is changing, and so must the system of education and training,” he said. Mr. Thwaites stated that the opening of the Southwest TVET Institute is important in meeting human resource needs.  “I expect an epiphany of small businesses in the centre of Jamaica, emerging from those who will train here,” he said. He encouraged the students to use the facility efficiently and prudently “because they represent the best investment that the average ordinary Jamaican, who pays tax for anything, is contributing to”. For her part, Executive Director, HEART Trust/NTA, Dr. Carolyn Hayle, said the programmes offered at the TVET Institutes are fashioned according to the demographics of the respective regions, and are aimed at providing economic opportunity and employment within each area. The Southwest TVET Institute was established in April 2011 with the merger of three vocational training centres – Black River, Junction and Newport. The Black River campus offers business services; building construction; healthcare services and nutrition; courses in engineering services, furniture and website design, among other areas at Junction; while the Newport campus has broadened its programme offerings to levels 3 and 4 diploma and associate degree programmes in the areas of events management, culinary management, sous chef, domestic electrical installation, lighting operations, and nursery care. For further details on additional programmes offered at the Institute, please visit the HEART Trust/NTA’s website or call at 1-876-965-7811. HEART Trust/NTA will celebrate its 30th anniversary on November 4.last_img read more

News / Container leasing market under pressure as carriers cut back

first_img“Although we have seen returns edge up to near 10% in the first half of this year, we do not expect these levels to be sustained given the recent build-up of factory stocks.”Long-term lease rates for standard dry containers soared by over 50% last year, a spike attributed primarily to the Hanjin bankruptcy in September 2016, which tied up large quantities of empty equipment seized by the South Korean carrier’s creditors. Hundreds of Hanjin leased containers are still unrecovered.However, with most container lines moving back into the black in 2017, the liners regained their appetite to upgrade and expand services, thus they were in the market for more equipment.Moreover, 2017 also saw a significant rebound in container manufacturing after almost grinding to a complete stop the previous year.“Given that buyers had cut back too much on their purchases in 2016, the latest surge in production – up 80% in 2017 – has concentrated on standard equipment and particularly the 40ft high-cube,” said Mr Foxcroft.With shipping lines focusing their investments on ships rather than equipment, and with loss-making carriers pledging to slash capital expenditure, Drewry said that the container fleet expansion is being driven by the leasing sector.Nevertheless, having lost an estimated $1.2bn in the first quarter and likely to report further trading losses in Q2, carriers are putting more pressure on procurement officers to deliver cost savings, which will include negotiating reductions in equipment costs.Like its carrier customers, the leasing industry has seen considerable consolidation in the past few years, establishing a new market leader in Triton, after its merger with TAL, with Textainer, Florens and Seaco making up the new ‘big four’ container leasing companies. © Scanrail After a strong first six months with container drop-offs at an exceptionally low level, container leasing companies face a tougher second half.Financially stressed ocean carriers are closing loss-making routes and postponing new services.This month’s Drewry Container Census & Leasing annual review and forecast report expects the return for the sector to be “squeezed”, due to the higher cost of newbuild equipment and static leasing rates.“With little change in lease rates anticipated over the next few years, investment returns are forecast to remain under pressure,” said Andrew Foxcroft, Drewry’s lead analyst for container equipment.center_img By Mike Wackett 12/07/2018last_img read more

De Jager set for surgery

It is probably going to be a rebuild, so will be five to six months.’De Jager’s was the third injury suffered by a Springbok lock in quick succession, with RG Snyman injuring his ACL ligament (ruling him out for the rest of the season) and Eben Etzebeth picking up a ribs injury.The Springboks will also be without star flyhalf Handre Pollard for the Rugby Championship after he also tore his ACL while playing for Montpellier in the French Top 14 last weekend.ALSO READ: Last chance for Lions tour ticketsPhoto: Getty Images ‘ Five one-cap Boks that could still represent South AfricaSA Rugby Magazine takes a look at five players who have only represented South Africa once but might do so again in the future.SA Rugby MagUndoLife Exact BrazilGrace Jones Is Now 72 Years Old, This Is Her NowLife Exact Brazil|SponsoredSponsoredUndoCNAHow is life for Cambodian boy linguist after viral fame?CNA|SponsoredSponsoredUndoShop Bras Online | Search AdsTake a Look at These Bra and Panty SetsShop Bras Online | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredUndoCNACOVID-19 – Latest news and coverageCNA|SponsoredSponsoredUndoLoans | Search AdsGetting a loan in Hong Kong may be easier than you thinkLoans | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredUndo  313  188 熱門話題對肚腩脂肪感到後悔!試了在萬寧賣的這個後…熱門話題|SponsoredSponsoredUndo Published on September 16, 2020 center_img ‘ SumabisPut Vaseline On Your Eyelashes Overnight, Here’s WhySumabis|SponsoredSponsoredUndo GoGoPeak10 Most Beautiful Cities You Should Visit Once In Your LifetimeGoGoPeak|SponsoredSponsoredUndo From the magazine: Jano Vermaak names his Perfect XVSA Rugby MagUndo ‘ De Jager set for surgery ‘ Shop Bras Online | Search AdsBrilliant Bra and Panty Sets (take a look)Shop Bras Online | Search Ads|SponsoredSponsoredUndoWorld Cup-winning Bok quartet in Eddie Jones’ all-time XVSA Rugby MagUndoWatch: Kolbe makes Test players look amateur – Ugo MonyeSA Rugby MagUndoSumabisThe Side Effects of Wearing Socks While Sleeping Might Surprise YouSumabis|SponsoredSponsoredUndo ‘last_img read more

Brain Cancer Patient Given Months to Live Improves With Malaria Drug

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMoreAfter her brain cancer became resistant to chemotherapy and then to targeted treatments, 26-year-old Lisa Rosendahl’s doctors gave her only a few months to live.But now, a new drug combination has stabilized Rosendahl’s disease and increased both the quantity and quality of her life.By adding anti-malaria drug chloroquine to her treatment, the combination stopped an essential process that Rosendahl’s cancer cells had been using to resist therapy, re-sensitizing her cancer to the targeted treatment that had previously stopped working. Along with Rosendahl, two other brain cancer patients were treated with the combination and both showed similar, dramatic improvement. “When I was 21 they found a large mass in my brain and I had it resected right away. They tested it for cancer and it came back positive,” Lisa says.“Lisa is a young adult with a very strong will to live. But it was a high-risk, aggressive glioblastoma and by the time we started this work, she had already tried everything. For that population, survival rates are dismal. Miraculously, she had a response to this combination. Four weeks later, she could stand and had improved use of her arms, legs and hands,” says paper first author Jean Mulcahy-Levy, investigator at the University of Colorado Cancer Center.CHECK OUT: After Marrying On Her ‘Deathbed,’ This Bride Made a Miraculous Recovery After Quitting 1 FoodThe science behind the innovative, off-label use of this malaria drug, chloroquine, was in large part built in the lab of Andrew Thorburn, deputy director of the CU Cancer Center, where Mulcahy-Levy worked as a postdoctoral fellow. Thorburn’s lab studies a cellular process called autophagy.From the Greek “to eat oneself,” autophagy is a process of cellular recycling in which cell organelles called autophagosomes encapsulate extra or dangerous material and transport it to the cell’s lysosomes for disposal.Like tearing apart a Lego kit, autophagy breaks down unneeded cellular components into building blocks of energy or proteins for use in surviving times of low energy or staying safe from poisons and pathogens (among other uses). Unfortunately, some cancers use autophagy to keep themselves safe from treatments.RELATED: First Ever Quadriplegic Treated With Stem Cells Regains Motor Control in His Upper Body“My initial lab studies were kind of disappointing. It didn’t look like there was much effect of autophagy inhibition on pediatric brain tumors. But then we found that it wasn’t no effect across the board – there were subsets of tumors in which inhibition was highly effective,” Mulcahy-Levy says.At that point, one promising strategy is to predict and/or test for new genetic dependencies and then treat any new dependency with another targeted therapy. However, some cancers develop multiple resistance mechanisms and others evolve so quickly that it can be difficult to stay ahead of these changes with the correct, next targeted treatment.“In September 2015, the previous targeted drugs weren’t working anymore,” says Greg Rosendahl. “Doctors gave Lisa less than 12 months to live. We took all our cousins up to Alaska for a final trip kind of thing. Then they came up with this new combination including chloroquine.” Vemurafenib had initially pushed Lisa’s cancer past the tipping point of survival. Then the cancer had learned to use autophagy to pull itself back from the brink. Now with chloroquine nixing autophagy, vemurafenib started working again.“My cancer got smaller, which is awesome for me,” Lisa says.MORE: Bold Trials to Kill Vicious Cancer Type is So Successful, FDA Will Fast Track to Patients“We have treated three patients with the combination and all three have had a clinical benefit. It’s really exciting – sometimes you don’t see that kind of response with an experimental treatment. In addition to Lisa, another patient was on the combination two-and-a-half years. She’s in college, excelling, and growing into a wonderful young adult, which wouldn’t have happened if we hadn’t put her on this combination,” Mulcahy-Levy says.Lisa recently bought a new wheelchair so that she could spend more time at the mall. She also applied for a handicap sticker to make it easier for her to visit a nearby park with food trucks. “She wants to get out and do more. She continues to have what she feels is a good quality of life,” Mulcahy-Levy says.As Mulcahy-Levy’s early studies show, many cancers do not depend on autophagy. But at the same time, many do. Because a safe and simple drug already exists to inhibit autophagy, the time between discovering an autophagy-dependent cancer and the ability to add autophagy-inhibiting chloroquine to a treatment regimen against this cancer may be short.“I really like being able to really tailor therapy to the patient,” Mulcahy-Levy says. “I like saying, ‘I think this is going to be really important to you,’ and not necessarily using the same treatment with another patient whose cancer is driven by different genetic alterations. This is the definition of patient-centered care – designing therapy based on that individual patient’s information. It’s not just glioblastoma, but a certain mutation and not just the mutation but a certain pattern of previous treatments and resistance.”“It makes me feel really lucky to be a pioneer in this treatment,” says Lisa Rosendahl. “I hope it helps and I hope it helps people down the road. I want it to help.”(Source: University of Colorado Cancer Center)Grow Some Positivity: Click To Share – Photo by CU TuftsAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterTwitterShare to EmailEmailEmailShare to RedditRedditRedditShare to MoreAddThisMorelast_img read more
