Ebola, socialism & imperialism

first_imgNow that the threat of the spread of Ebola within the United States has diminished — for the present — news of the crisis has dropped into the back pages of the corporate-owned major newspapers and off the broadcast media. But the Ebola epidemic remains a continuing danger in parts of Africa and an ongoing threat that requires worldwide attention and action.To date, over 20,000 people, mostly in West Africa, have contracted the disease; over 8,000 have died; and the number of new cases is still on the increase.A sustained international effort is called for, but the response, especially from Western imperialist countries, has been minimal at best.For example, the major U.S. government action has been the deployment of elite combat troops, such as the 82nd and 101st Airborne divisions. The focus of these troops, according to the U.S chair of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Army Gen. Martin E. Dempsey, is “to … [establish] command and control nodes, logistic hubs … and [provide] engineering support” along with training for health care workers. The general made clear that none of the troops would be involved in directly treating or caring for victims of the epidemic. (Defense.gov, Oct. 1)Little wonder that many question the real motives of what amounts to an invasion of the region.By contrast, socialist Cuba has sent 256 medical workers to Africa, with 165 in Sierra Leone and the rest in Guinea and Liberia. In comparison to the relative total populations of the U.S. and Cuba, the U.S would need to send 7,680 doctors and health care workers to Africa to equal the Cuban effort.From the beginning of the outbreak, the U.S. and its allies have attempted to politicize the Ebola crisis.Volunteers from private agencies who traveled to West Africa from the U.S have often found themselves treated, not as heroes, but virtual pariahs upon their return.By contrast, the Cuban volunteers are rightly considered heroes.Because of the illegal U.S. embargo, many of the Cuban doctors in Africa — who are working under the aegis of United Nations organizations — have not only faced delays in their deployment, but even found that the U.S. Treasury had held up their pay and expenses for several months.Despite all this, they have maintained their morale and internationalist spirit.Cuban doctor Félix Báez — who contracted the virus in Sierra Leone in November, was treated and has since recovered — announced on Dec. 29 that he will return to the region.Considering that the disease has already killed nearly 350 medical personnel, including 106 in Sierra Leone, the courage of the Cuban doctors must be commended. They are a shining example of the socialist ideal that health care is a human right for everyone in the world.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Limerick researchers crack the secret of good golf

first_imgNewsEducationSportGolfLimerick researchers crack the secret of good golfBy Staff Reporter – November 27, 2019 234 Print Facebook Advertisement Twitter Announcing details of their research at Ballyneety Golf Course, Co. Limerick were researchers, Niall Ramsbottom, Dr. Adam Toth Dr. Mark Campbell and Eoghan McNeill.Photo by Alan Place.RESEARCHERS at the University of Limerick are lending support to Arnold Palmer’s famous assertion that golf is predominantly played in “the six inches between the ears”.They found that kinaesthetic ability, which is an individual’s capacity to feel an action without actually performing it, may improve their golf game.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up Niall Ramsbottom who is a researcher with Lero, the UL-based national software research centre, explained that the study showed that, with mental practice, golfers can improve their putting.“Our results indicate that a form of mental practice, such as the combination of action observation and motor imagery, may enhance the golf putting ability of experienced golfers.“And that could well mean a reduction in their handicap,” he added.The research was carried out at the Physical Education and Sports Sciences Department at University of Limerick, in conjunction with Lero. The findings for the work carried out by Mr Ramsbottom and his fellow researchers, Eoghan McNeill, Dr Adam Toth and Dr Mark Campbell, show that golfers who already had a good ‘feel” for putting, may benefit the most from this mental practice.“Putting is a feel-based motor skill and our research suggests that those with good kinaesthetic imagery ability may perform better following this mental practice technique,” explained Mr Ramsbottom.“The findings suggest that simply viewing a video of another performing an action may bolster one’s ability to imagine and subsequently perform that action,” he said.Putting ability is crucial in golf as approximately 40 per cent of golf strokes are taken with the putter.“Furthermore, golf putting ability was found to be one of the most important skills in determining earnings on the Professional Golf Association (PGA) Tour,” the report, published in Psychology of Sport and Exercise, states, citing previously conducted research.In undertaking the research, 44 right-handed, skilled male golfers from the Limerick area were recruited. Each of the participants was required to hold a current Golfing Union of Ireland handicap, and could not have participated on any such research previously.In a laboratory environment, the golfers completed 40 putts with instructions to ‘make the ball stop as close to the target as possible’. A three-dimensional ultrasound camera was used to record the putting and statistical analysis was conducted, using specialised software.“A subset of golfers looked at an action observation video which consisted of an expert golfer performing the putting task in the same lab environment. They did so while listening to a motor imagery script consisting of short sentences describing key visual and kinaesthetic feelings associated with performing the putting the task.Having completed these simple exercises, the golfers who were found to have better kinaesthetic imagery (KI) ability benefited more from the mental practice intervention than those with poorer KI ability,” explained Mr Ramsbottom.Lero opened Ireland’s first esports research lab in September 2019, combining health science and computing research.center_img Linkedin Email Previous articleJetland opens a new chapter in Dunne’s Limerick storyNext articleSoda Blonde : Making music that moves you Staff Reporterhttp://www.limerickpost.ie WhatsApplast_img read more

Jack Davis honored as China Grove Grand Marshal

You just never know what the parade will bring.”The road leading into China Grove is a good vantage point for viewing the parade but so is the “downtown” area.The corner of Lockheed Martin Road and Merriweather Trail can accommodate lawn chairs and is the closest place to all the good food that is available for the lunch bunch – hotdogs, hamburgers, barbecued chicken and ribs.And, the Benton Brothers will be on stage with their special brand of bluegrass/gospel music for all to enjoy following the parade.When the parade ends, there will be free slices of watermelon for the asking and plenty of shady places for picnics and fellowship.“A lot of people stay around to have lunch,” LaFountaine said. “Some people bring picnics to spread. Others bring board games to play, instruments to pick, and even books to read.”LaFountaine explained that many people like the down-home atmosphere of China Grove and take advantage of the opportunity to sit back, relax and enjoy a Normal Rockwell Fourth of July in the usually sleepy community of China Grove.

Watch Before It’s… Sponsored Content Troy Rotary Club meeting turns into ‘a zoo’ “McClelland’s Zoo is different from most zoos in that you can get closer to the animals,” McClelland said.“I give tours and go in the cages with every animal. I even let a grizzly eat a marshmallow out of my mouth. I’m not afraid of any of the animals.”The zoo owner said his goal is to educate people about the animals so they will understand and appreciate them.The Rotarians quizzed McClelland on the cost of feeding such a large “family.”He said the large meat-eating animals consume more that 440 pounds of raw meat a day and the other animals require about 600 pounds of dog food a week.“So, if you harvest a deer and you don’t want the meat, I’ll take it,” he said. “But the cats will not eat wild hog meat. They will drag it around for a couple of days but they won’t eat it. I don’t know why.”Someone asked if any animals had ever escaped the zoo.“They don’t want to get out,” McClelland said, with a smile. “They’re happy here.”For more information about McClelland’s Zoo, call 334-243-4039 or Google McClelland’s Zoo. Latest Stories The zoo is located in rural Pike County near Banks but nearer Ebenezer, which McClelland said is an ideal, natural setting for a zoo.“I love animals.

Yo! New rentals scheme lets tenants move in within 48 hours

first_imgA new option for people wanting to rent a home is to be launched by the co-founder of Yotel.Gerard Green’s private rental site called Society will provide new apartments that treat tenants more like hotel guests, with an app that speeds up the whole rental process, allowing new tenants to move into a new home within 48 hours.That’s an unusually speedy process, but Gerard says the lettings business needs to catch up with others sectors that have experienced a digital revolution.“To find an apartment there is a lengthy process where you have to send your passport and various other forms of ID, pay different fees to different people before you are moved into an apartment block – and then you never hear from them again.”He plans to build space saving apartment homes with raisable beds, sinkable dining tables and foldaway kitchens. He plans to build the first homes in the New Islington area of Manchester; the application has been refused by Manchester City Council where one councillor apparently called the designs “stupid” adding that it should “yo yo back to London where it belongs,” but it will be discussed again at the September committee meeting.Jack Spurrier, MD at Yo! Homes said, A lot of issues raised were not to do with planning policy but were personal opinion, however we will be reviewing parts of the scheme and are hopeful that it will be approved at the next meeting on 22nd September.new rental scheme build-to-rent Yo!

Truman and USS Gettysburg Feb. 6. The deployment was originally scheduled for Friday, Feb. 8.The affected ships have begun formally notifying the men and women of the Harry S.
