Among them is 25-year-old Jesús Linares. His dream, he explains in English, was to be a language teacher, but like many Salvadoran children he went to work to help support his parents and siblings. Aged eight, he learned to hide in the towering canes whenever the police sought out underage workers; since then, he’s tended sugarcane from dawn to noon and then pigs until dusk. In the evenings, he tries to listen to English audio programmes or read a language book, but for the last year he’s been too tired to concentrate. So tired, in fact, that a few months ago he visited the Tierra Blanca clinic. Blood tests revealed that Linares was in the early stages of chronic kidney disease.

People with disabilities and special needs were poorly served on community projects despite district councils receiving HK$361 million in funding to cater for them, the Audit Commission revealed on Wednesday. They accounted for less than 2 per cent of 6,900 projects in total last year, while only 0.1 per cent of 15 million participants were new mainland Chinese migrants or ethnic minorities. The commission found that project evaluators also tended to exaggerate the number of people taking part...

By Juan Cole | (Informed Comment) | The Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii has reported that in April, for the first time in human history the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere has exceeded 410 parts per million (ppm). Carbon dioxide (CO2) is a powerful greenhouse gas that prevents the sun's heat from radiating back out into space once it strikes the surface. It is because Venus's atmosphere is mainly CO2 that the planet is a torrid hell-hole where metals melt on the surface. New scientific estimates are that the last time there was this much carbon dioxide in the earth's atmosphere may have been the Pliocene , some 4.5 million years ago. Some earlier estimates suggested that it had been 24 million years since we had this much CO2. In past eras, carbon dioxide levels tended to go up mainly because of volcanic eruptions. The CO2 gradually gets scrubbed back out of the atmosphere by going into the ocean or by binding with igneous rock, over hundreds of thousands or millions of years.

“The worst day ever,” Kathy said. Their son’s autopsy said he died of self-inflicted head injuries — an accident, the medical examiner concluded. Even in the dark days following their son’s death, the Dyers tended to believe the police. Why wouldnt they? Kathy, a civil engineer, and Robert, a teacher, were solid citizens. Even though they were originally inclined to believe the police, they continued to ask more and more questions, like what were all those “chicken feetscratches all over Graham’s body? Or, why did the emergency room doctor’s notes say Graham appeared to be a victim of assault? However, when Kathy and Robert went down to the Mesquite police department, they were not given answers to any of their questions — because police werent required to answer any of them. According to the ridiculous state law, police departments arent required to hand over records for any incidents that dont result in a conviction.

It's not the only such training tool available, but Tye-Murray says one of the aspects of this software that sets it apart from other programs is the ability to practice listening to specific voices. ...historically, audiologists tended to assume that familiarity with a voice might limit the patient's ability to further improve understanding of that same voice. Our program includes traditional generic voices, but we also have a recording and editing system that lets patients train with the voices of people they most want to hear—often spouses, children or grandchildren, Tye-Murray says. The patient's spouse, for example, sits down and records the samples. Our software edits the audio clips. As soon as the recording is finished, the patient can begin training with his or her spouse's voice. Tye-Murray's research, published in the Journal of Speech, Language, and Hearing Research , has demonstrated that patients show improved recognition of a spouse's speech when practicing with the spouse's voice, compared with practicing with generic voices that are part of all other auditory training programs.

Much Love, -Amna A post shared by Amna Al Haddad ???????? (@amna.s.alhaddad) on Mar 10, 2017 at 1:01am PST There were also significant differences in how male and female P.E. classes were carried out, Al Haddad explains. Girls classes tended to be focused on fitness, rather than competitive sports: We did things like jumping jacks, she recalls. Meanwhile, boys would play basketball and soccer, and race one another on the track. At an early age, they were given a chance to challenge one another and could dream about being a world-famous sports star or competing for their country. Al Haddad ended up in a gym when she was in her early twenties and beginning a career as a journalist. At the time, she had been in a bit of a funk. She felt aimless and depressed, and needed to shed a few pounds after several years of unhealthy living.

US officials tended to focus on international groups like Islamic State and al Qaeda, while Afghan officials see Pakistan, and the Taliban as an extension of that, as the major threat, he added. "With those differences, you can't possibly have a coherent strategy." In the final years of former US President Barack Obama's administration, American troops in Afghanistan were discouraged from directly targeting the Taliban, amid hopes the group could be brought to the negotiating table for peace talks. "The Obama administration was very much existing in a parallel universe where if you don't call the Taliban terrorists then there's a chance you can reconcile with them," said Ioannis Koskinas, senior fellow with think-tank New America. Uncertain strategy Despite a surge of tens of thousands of US soldiers that ended in 2012, some Afghan officials became impatient with what they saw as an American fixation on withdrawal, and since then, a lack of focus on ending the war.

Just after noon on January 20, 1993, Billl Clinton’s staff took control of the briefing room and locked the door, setting the tone for eight rocky years. The hostility between Trump’s White House and the press may be unusually acute, but it is not interrupting any decades-long streak of bonhomie. For all of the perceptions of Obama as a media darling, his time in office was marked by an unprecedented crackdown on leakers and new restrictions on basic access for reporters. Obama-era press briefings tended to be staid affairs, but acrimony was common behind the scenes. “Jay Carney used to call editors and scream at them,” said Condon of Obama’s second White House press secretary. “And if he was doing that complaining about headlines in National Journal , I could only imagine what he was doing with the bureau chiefs of the networks who reach millions of viewers.

Erik Jones emerged from the chaos at Bristol Motor Speedway on Saturday afternoon to take home a title at the NASCAR Xfinity Series Fitzgerald Glider Kits 300. Ryan Blaney and Daniel Suarez finished second and third, respectively, while Daniel Hemric finished fifth and won the $100,000 Dash 4 Cash. Here's a look at the top of the leaderboard from Saturday's Xfinity showdown: The short-track action at Bristol was dominated early by Kyle Larson , who won the day's first two stages and led 156 of a possible 170 laps over the first two frames. However, a wrench was thrown into his groove when the second stage was halted with seven laps remaining as precipitation started to fall rather heavily. At that point, NASCAR brought out the red flag and drivers were forced to park their cars on pit road for more than 90 minutes as crews tended to the wet track, as the circuit's official Twitter account documented: When the red flag was lifted, Larson lost his lead position following a pit stop.

.. someone, make that now). Thats the common theme with this question - most people like the idea of being able to track their runs, but many admit that it can be a torture device as much as a help: I've used GPS watches for a while and used to rely on them too much. Now I mostly use them for logging mileage and try to run by feel as best I can, says Nairn McWilliams, the man with possibly the most Scottish name in the world. I am interested in training by heart rate though, especially because I have tended to run my easy runs too hard in the past. Nairn also pointed out that for racing, learning to read the bodys reactions is possibly more important - and that tech can sometimes get in the way of that - a feeling echoed by coach Mike Jubb: Unless [technology] is used to slow you down in a longer race (to avoid blowing later) then I believe you'll finish faster by focussing on 'racing' without it.

And she remained their sex partner, too. “The couple had sex sporadically, sometimes having sex multiple times in a week and at other times going months without sex,” she claims in the documents. As for Belafonte, he “was not present during most of the sexual encounters,” she alleges. PHOTOS: Larry King’s Horror: Cheating Wife’s Lover Revealed! “The only times Gilles and Belafonte had sex was when Brown herself invited her husband to join the couple in the bedroom, at which point Brown would often serve as the ‘camera man’ and record the sexual encounter and/or take part in the menage a trois herself.” (Brown took out a restraining order against Gilles earlier this month, claiming she had copies of those tapes, but Gilles says she does not own them.) What’s more, Gilles says she was not their only partner: “Gilles personally witnessed both Brown and Belafonte bring different women into their home and engage in group sex on multiple occasions, while Gilles tended to the children,” the lawsuit claims.

“It’s disrupting the old way in which politics was financed, which tended to be big donors with a certain agenda that didnt necessarily reflect the will of the public at large,” Crowdpac co-founder Paul Hilder told me when I talked to him back in January , when an election seemed blissfully far away. And according to More United’s acting CEO Bess Mayhew, “a [cumulative] donation in the range of £10-20,000 will make you the largest donor to a candidate, which will give you an impact.” At the time of writing, More United has just broken through its £50,000 snap election fundraising goal and is closing in on its new target of £100,000 . On a smaller scale, Tim Farron will now face off against a fish finger for his Westmorland and Lonsdale seat, thanks to raising £1,488 via Crowdfunder . Well done, internet. 2.
