Peter Phillips and Director for Latin America and the Caribbean in the EU’s Development Co-operation Office, Jolita Butkeviciene, during a ceremony at the Finance Ministry in Kingston.“This fits within the general pattern of support from the European Union…(These funds) will assist us in meeting our MDGs in respect of maternal and child mortality,” the Minister said.Meanwhile, Ms. Butkeviciene said in the area of health, while big strides have been made in fighting HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria, “we still haven’t arrived where we would like to be in tackling mother and child deaths during child birth and also securing access to services.”She noted that Jamaica is one of 18 countries chosen by the EU for assistance under its MDG initiative which seeks to assist with addressing challenges in achieving MDGs.Ms. Butkeviciene said Jamaica is considered as one of the countries committed to achieving the MDG objectives and had presented a very credible proposal in the area of health.For his part, Minister of Health, Hon. Dr. Fenton Ferguson, expressed his gratitude to the EU for the assistance, which will greatly aid in the country’s achievement of MDGs 4 and 5, which “have presented their own challenges.” MDG 4 relates to reducing infant deaths; while MDG 5 speaks to improving maternal health.“This project has come at a very critical and important period. The elements of this project are excellent. ..The question of institutional strengthening, improvement at the primary care level, training and research – all of this will add significant value to the quality of care that we will be able to offer to our people,” the Minister said.

The yogic components of misinformation

first_imgWe often call it an era of information technology but what is critically ignored are the consequences arising of ‘planned’ circulation of selective or partially true information to create a buzz the intention of which cannot be good by any means.Most of the times these kinds of information are meant to malign the intentions of either the ruling establishment or the erstwhile entities. All these are going to harm nothing else than the institution of democracy. Anyhow, in the current scenario, the news about repression and other acts of barbarism from one kind of news while on the other side news regarding glorifying the policies and acts of a person or a party or a country is a trend too.The mind game or in other words, the sledging by the entities across, is all a routine now. The audience is be-fooled with not only false information but also fall prey to fake and propaganda news. Most of the times, it becomes a favourite pastime of the users to chat and comment on these posts. The ugly side is that people make comments on a personal note and then we find the unfriendly and un-parliamentary languages being used.The ultimate beneficiaries are none other than the parties involved and the social media platforms as they receive high engagements from the users.  But the detrimental impacts on social harmony is hardly looked upon. But when such acts of misinformation flow give a boomerang effect then we find the hue and cry by the aggrieved.Anyhow, let us explore the yogic (combination) components of this undesired yet the ‘need’ of the hour. The main elements for this misinformation epidemic are the fabricated news; the party or the entity that sparks the distorted news; the channels that are used to explore the news; and the recipients of such news.The news of these kind gets viral like anything and their explosion rate is even more than the Covid-19 reach. While there is no owner of the internet as such, there is very less check on such sponsored acts of misinformation and its circulation. The world-wide ‘web’ is a very prominent mode of trapping people and use their sentiments in demolishing the very essence of information and news.Any kind of legal or other actions, however, are taken as a breach of the right of expression or a curb on the right of reaching to the information.So, where lies the solution? The ONLY practical solution to this is the conscious and awareness of the audience. The more one ignores or refrains from posting a comment or sharing it then only we can assume the sanctity of democracy.However, there would be another class of information apart from the fake news is the perception of the news. While automation of the production unit is quality-enhancing news for someone and on the other hand it is a threat to the job opportunities for others. This is, in fact, the beauty of perceptions and expressions.But the critical point that always needs a surgical strike is the source and creator of selective or fake news. For the rest of the things, we need to train the minds of the people at the earliest possible age to differentiate between sponsored information with devil intentions. This is vital in the sense that at times such misinformation leads to social unrest, destabilizing the democratic setup apart from national security and integrity.As discussed, the pandemic of fake news and misinformation is a routine issue in the Indian context and probably, we find that people are now used to it. All air-no substance holds a bitter truth in Indian peninsula owing to political parties and their cyber army. The phenomenon is not new. We heard about a similar episode in Mahabharata when news about the demise of Aswasthama was announced which actually meant an elephant but was received as about the son of Guru Dronacharya. The news was correct but the intentions were something different. The maligned political intentions lead to use the various modes of information flow, in particular the social media platforms where is hardly any censorship or checks to stop the ‘created’ news and edited photographs. Although various provisions the Indian Penal Code takes into consideration, certain forms of narratives that can be taken as fake news and have its applications on the contents that are posted on social media. However, there is no specific provision that particularly deals with fake news.One may quote the Information Technology Act 2000 as a regulating law for electronic commerce and certain cybercrimes. Yeah, there was a provision under section 66A that puts a check on the willful dissemination of false information using a computer or any communication device, with the intention of annoyance, inconvenience, danger, obstruction, insult, injury, criminal intimidation, enmity, hatred, or ill will. However, the Supreme Court of India has struck down this provision as unconstitutional.Isn’t it ironical that IT Act 2000 and the Information Technology (Intermediaries Guidelines) 2011 gives immunity (although limited one) for social media platforms and online companies for any illegal content posted by its users? The only thing they can do is to remove such contents.I hope that the new draft rules as proposed by the Indian government in 2018 barricades the misuse of online and social media platforms with increased accountability of these channels.If Election Commission of India can issue binding instructions on the use of social media during election campaigns as seen during 2019 elections that sought certain information about the social media accounts of the candidates and forced them to procure precertification and/or approval of their political advertisements then why can’t other enforcement agencies go on the same track?This month witnesses the International Yoga Day where we tend to make ourselves resilient. So, what else can be a better month to take the pledge to be focused and remain alert to refrain from all such idiotic news? And if at all the news has to be believed then it is better to get it verified from the reliable sources. “Prevention is better than the cure” is the core message of this day, else be ready to be served with jumla-based misinformation on the pattern of 15 lakhs rupees getting in your account or obtaining gold from Aloos (potatoes), the statement quoted to be made by Shahrukh Khan on intolerance etc. are all half-true news.last_img read more

Firms step up no-deal preparations after Brexit vote

first_imgBusinesses must start seriously preparing for a no-deal scenario after last night’s historic House of Commons vote rejecting the agreement negotiated between the government and the EU, specialist lawyers have warned. Charles Brasted, head of the Brexit task force at international Hogan Lovells, said the vote left no indication of what sort of deal would gain MPs’ approval. ‘Unless and until a majority coalesces around a deal that the EU will accept, a no-deal exit on 29 March is the default outcome,’ said Brasted. ‘The majority in the house who seek to avoid that outcome must be under no illusions as to what it will take.’ Brasted: ‘The clock keeps ticking’Brasted said that, if a general election were to be called, the logistics of holding the vote would mean any new government would not be in place until March at the earliest He added: ‘In the meantime, the clock keeps ticking to 29 March. Like businesses and citizens in the UK and across Europe, preparations for no deal will have to continue apace, on the part of the UK, the EU and all of the EU27 member states.’ The Law Society said that the vote leaves three possible ways forward: the prime minister could ask for an extension and then seek a new round of negotiations; deadlock in parliament could see the UK moving towards a new referendum or a general election; or the UK could leave on 29 March without a deal.During last night’s debate, Labour MP Kate Hoey, a long-standing opponent of EU membership, appeared to suggest that lawyers in the chamber were behind efforts to thwart the exit process. Hoey said: ‘Had the result been 52% to remain and 48% to leave, does the house think that we, and all the lawyers, QCs and solicitors here, would have been beavering around trying to find a way to get a little bit of Canada or Norway into the remain decision? Let us be honest: there are people here who would do anything to stop us leaving the EU.’last_img read more

‘To the Ashton Gate Eight and their families, Bristol City salutes you’ – Jon Lansdown

first_imgLansdown spoke to Robins TV about the first strip designed in conjunction with the club’s new technical partner hummel, and proudly displaying the club’s sponsor MansionBet, which honours the Robins’ history as it pays tribute to the Eight. In 1982, Jimmy Mann, Trevor Tainton, Geoff Merrick, David Rodgers, Gerry Sweeney, Peter Aitken, Chris Garland and Julian Marshall selflessly tore up their contracts to save the club from financial ruin – an act which will never be forgotten. Lansdown, who was passionately involved in the kit designs, said: “It is fitting that we pay tribute to the selfless acts of the Ashton Gate Eight in something as significant as the shirt. We are embarking on a new chapter for the club with the new kit partner, club sponsor and head coach, but the club would not look like it does today without the actions of these eight men.“This is the most technically detailed kit that we have produced and has a number of references to the Eight. It is also poignant that the design is inspired by the shirt that they never got to wear. To all of the Ashton Gate Eight and their families, Bristol City salutes you. Thank you.”last_img read more

Terrified mum’s warning after bogus online poster over ‘missing’ son

first_imgA young mum has issued a warning to other parents after online conmen posted a picture of her son on social media claiming he was missing.Tricia Greene from Gaoth Dobhair was left shocked when she saw a poster of her son Callan claiming her was missing.The online appeal went viral and was shared more than four thousand times on Facebook as well as Twitter and Snapchat by concerned members of the public. The bogus poster warned ‘Still no sign of Caolan, if anyone has seen him or sees him can they please get in touch!“He’s six years old, been missing since Friday and was last seen wearing the jacket in this picture, Barcelona top & joggies around Springburn Park area.”The campaign, which used an actual picture of Callan, was widely shared in and around the Glasgow area of Scotland.Mum Tricia only found out about the bogus campaign when relatives in Glasgow became concerned about Callan thinking he was missing. The post which went viral claiming Donegal lad Callan was missing.They contacted Tricia only to find out that Callan was safe and well at home in Donegal.Tricia then spent hours trying to get to the bottom of the bogus online campaign and asking people to delete the message and not to share it anymore.She said she doesn’t know why anybody would do this but said it must have been deliberate if they took a picture of Callan and put an appeal along with it.“I just want to let other parents know that these things can happen. I don’t know why anybody would do such a thing but it certainly gave me a fright.“I might never have known about this but for the fact that I have relatives living in Glasgow and they alerted me to it. “Thankfully Callan has never been missing and that’s all that matters. But I would hate for any other parents to get the fright that I got when I read this,” she said.Terrified mum’s warning after bogus online poster over ‘missing’ son was last modified: November 29th, 2018 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Tags:donegalFacebookGaoth DobhaironlinepostSnapchatTricia GreeneTwitterWarninglast_img read more
