Fisher-Price recalls sleepers after more than 30 babies died

NEW YORK — Fisher-Price recalled nearly 5 million infant sleepers on Friday after more than 30 babies died in them over a 10-year period.The U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission said anyone who bought a Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play sleeper should stop using it right away and contact Fisher-Price for a refund or voucher. The sleepers, which are used to put babies to sleep, are soft padded cradles that vibrate.Fisher-Price and the CPSC said the deaths occurred after infants rolled over from their backs to their stomachs or sides while unrestrained, but did not specify how they died. In an article this week, Consumer Reports found that some of the infants died from suffocation.A safety warning was issued last week, but The American Academy of Pediatrics urged Fisher-Price and the CPSC to recall the sleepers, calling them “deadly.”In a statement Friday, Fisher-Price said that it stood by the safety of its products and said it issued the voluntary recall “due to reported incidents in which the product was used contrary to the safety warnings and instructions.”The recall covers about 4.7 million sleepers, which sold for between $40 and $149 since 2009.The Associated Press read more

UN food aid agency appeals for 500 million to offset soaring prices

“We urge your Government to act quickly on this request so that we may avoid cutting the rations for those who rely on the world to stand by them during times of abject need,” Josette Sheeran, Executive Director of the World Food Programme (WFP), said in a letter to donors send out on 20 March.The price of food and fuel has risen to record levels in recent years, shooting up at an aggressive pace of 55 per cent since June 2007, Ms. Sheeran noted, saying that WFP had taken many steps to mitigate the increases, including buying 80 per cent of its food supplies in local and regional markets.Due to the sharp price rises, however, the new estimated figure to cover this year’s projects across 78 countries is $3.4 billion, which does not include unforeseen emergency operations, the agency said. Rising prices also mean that the world’s poorest people will have to spend a larger proportion of their income on food, the agency said, and they will buy less food, food that is less nutritious, or rely on aid.“Our efforts will include working with governments, UN agencies and other partners to address long-term solutions while we tackle these urgent needs,” Ms. Sheeran said.Countries where price rises are expected to have a direct impact include Zimbabwe, Eritrea, Haiti, Djibouti, the Gambia, Tajikistan, Togo, Chad, Benin, Myanmar, Cameroon, Niger, Senegal, Yemen and Cuba, according to WFP. 24 March 2008The United Nations agency that is feeding 73 million people caught up in crises around the world this year is appealing for funding to close a $500 million gap caused by a global spike in food and fuel prices. read more

Topshop criticised by parents for toothin mannequins which look like famine victims

first_imgHer post has been shared hundreds of times as parents agreed that the mannequins were too thin.One angered commentator wrote: “Those mannequins look anorexic, how is promoting eating disorders a good thing?”Another said: “They look like victims of famine! It’s not a good look for girls!”A leading UK youth charity criticised Topshop, branding their ultra-thin mannequins “insidious.”Denise Hatton, Chief Executive of the National Council of YMCAs, a founding partner of body image campaign Be Real, said: “It’s shocking to see the return of ultra-thin mannequins at Topshop, almost two years after the retailer said it will stop using them.”Once again young women and girls are presented with an ‘ideal’ body type that’s unrealistic and unhealthy for the majority of people to achieve.”Only ever seeing one body type in fashion advertising, particularly an extremely thin body type, risks creating an insidious pressure to attempt to become something we’re not.”This is why we launched the Body Image Pledge last year to urge the advertising, fashion, media and music industries to be responsible in the way they portray body image.”While many clothing brands and retailers have started to reflect society’s diversity in their advertising recently, reintroducing underweight mannequins back to the high street risks undoing all the great progress we’ve achieved over the last few years.”Topshop declined to comment. “Amen baby. Amen. Who’s up for screaming in anger with me and my girl?” ‘Look at that, Mum! I mean just LOOK at it. Me and M couldn’t believe it as we walked past! I mean, it’s not surprising that so many of my friends think they are fat or just don’t like their bodies.’Are girls not meant to be happy whatever size they are? Are we not meant to even f—ing EAT?! I like food. I like to eat good food but LOOK AT THEM, I am so ANGRY.’I am never shopping there. TOPSHOP need to hear the things I hear when girls talk. It’s places like that making my friends think their bodies aren’t beautiful and that they shouldn’t eat food they love and it makes me want to scream.’ Parents have spoken out about Topshop’s use of ‘too-thin’ mannequins to promote their clothing.The high street chain two years ago promised to stop using stick-thin mannequins in their stores, but it appears they are now using new ones.Mother Zoe Mason spoke of how her 15-year-old daughter was shocked when she saw the figures in a shop window in Herefordshire.She wrote on Facebook: “My Biggest Girl went into town with her friend after school yesterday. They went around the shops to try to find a birthday present for another friend of theirs.”I was quite taken aback when they first things that tumbled out of my girl’s mouth were words full of crossness.

Restore laws banning popup protests in Parliament Square says ex terror chief

Police arrested 16 people on Saturday after violent clashes between Brexit and Remainer protestors in the Square. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Mr Walton, who headed the counter-terror command until 2016 and is now a senior fellow at think tank Policy Exchange, said: “There is a need to balance the rights of ordinary citizens, parliamentarians, civil servants and tourists with the rights of protestors.”“It is time to re-set the limits of protest by confining it to allocated areas with strong and immediate enforcement of anyone attempting to block highways, roads and bridges, even momentarily. “New primary legislation is needed to redress the balance between lawful protest andserious disruption, especially in the vicinity of Parliament and Whitehall which should be re-designated as a specially restricted area, not least because – as we have seen on more thanone occasion – it is vulnerable to attack by terrorists. “The case for creating a new properly policed traffic free pedestrian zone in and around Parliament Square should also be explored.   “It is important for democracy and the restoration of the rule of law that protest does not intimidate and harass those in and around the seat of government, regardless of the debates happening in Parliament.”Mr Walton’s proposals follow daily protests in the square not only over Brexit but also black cab drivers bringing it to a standstill, the Extinction Rebellion occupation which led to traffic gridlock across London and other demonstrations. New laws should be introduced to restore order in Parliament Square by barring “pop-up” protests that are becoming a “national embarrassment” and dangerous, says a former anti-terror police chief.Just a day after violent clashes in the Square, Richard Walton, ex-head of the Met’s counter-terror command, said legislation requiring protestors to give seven days’ notice of demonstrations in the square should be reinstated after being repealed by the Coalition Government in 2011.In an article for The Daily Telegraph, he said police should also have new powers to impose conditions on such requests that would prevent protestors from blocking roads and causing traffic chaos by allowing officers to designate areas where they could be contained behind barriers.He said the current situation where police appeared powerless to stop protestors from insulting public figures, civil servants and members of the public had turned the square into a “circus, a safety issue and a national embarrassment.”Such moves have been backed by deputy speaker Lindsey Hoyle, who has raised concerns about the growing number of protesters congregating around the entrance to the Commons, suggesting they should be confined to specified areas in front of the building. Demonstrators with police officers on Parliament SquareCredit:Daniel Leal Olivas/AFP The Coalition scrapped laws require protestors to give seven days notice when it introduced an Act in 2011 to bar camping and the use of loud hailers, legislation designed to close down the “Democracy Village” encampment which had been set up outside Parliament more than a year earlier.Mr Walton said police were also constrained by human rights legislation protecting freedoms of expression and peaceful assembly. “The police’s ability to prevent or moderate protest is now extremely limited,” he added.

Ancient Alien Life Discovered on Earth Maybe

first_imgSpeaking of alien life (and really, who isn’t, these days?), scientists may have already discovered the stuff–right here on Earth. That was certainly handy. It saved someone a whole heck of a lot of travel. Thing is, the apparent life form discovered by Richard Hoover, an astrobiologist based out of Marshall Space Flight Center in Alabama is really, really small and really, really old.The fossilized, microscopic bacteria apparently hitched a ride to our planet on a meteorite. Hoover’s carbon-based bacteria is similar in form to blue-green algae. Says Hoover, “We have known for a long time that there were very interesting biomarkers in carbonaceous meteorites and the detection of structures that are very similar … to known terrestrial cyanobacteria is interesting in that it indicates that life is not restricted to the planet Earth.”Scientists claim to have discovered evidence of microbial in extraterrestrial rock formations in the past, but the evidence has proven difficult to prove conclusively. These most recent findings will no doubt be subject to similar scrutiny. In the meantime, keep a close eye on your Reese’s Pieces stash.last_img read more

Watch Bald Eagle Lays Egg in Southern California Mountains

first_img Watch: Dolphin Leaps Feet Away From Unsuspecting SurferWatch: Deep-Sea Octopus ‘Billows Like a Circus Tent’ Congrats are in order for a couple of new parents: An egg has been laid in in a nest shared by two bald eagles in Big Bear, California — and it was all captured on live cam.U.S. Forest Service officials announced on Thursday that the bald eagle mom, named Jackie, has laid an egg with a second one possibly on the way, the Desert Sun reported.Both Jackie and dad, Shadow, will alternate incubation duties, which last about 35 days.“This regulates the temperature of the egg so the embryo can develop. If all goes well, we should see a hatching around April 10,” Robin Eliason, a Forest Service biologist, said in a statement.In the meantime, nature-lovers and eagle fans can watch mom and dad at their nest via the Big Bear Bald Eagle Nest Cam.It’s only fitting that cameras filmed Jackie as she laid her egg. The bald eagle parents, both five years old, were actually filmed mating — a process that lasted a matter of seconds — on Feb. 7 in a nest on the north side of Big Bear Lake.The cameras, installed by the group Friends of Big Bear Valley, are solar-powered, so some noise comes from the batteries recharging which the eagles cannot hear, but can be heard in the system. It was installed in the to properly acclimate to the environment and not disturb the eagles.The nest in the Fawnskin area is about 120 feet in the air near the top of a Jeffrey pine. According to the Los Angeles Times, the area currently is off limits to the public because the eagles may abandon the nest and the egg if they feel threatened by humans.Image captured by live webcam shows an eagle looking over an egg on March 8. (Photo Credit: Friends of Big Bear Valley and Big Bear Eagle Nest Cam)Last year, Jackie gave birth to two chicks, Stormy and BBB, but BBB did not survive the harsh weather conditions, according to Fox 10 Phoenix.On Thursday, the video feed showed an eagle nestling on the egg as strong, cold winds blow through the San Bernardino National Forest.The egg laying comes at the tail end of the Forest Service’s annual eagle count, now in its 40th year.

North Korean men take a rest in Pyongyang North K

first_img North Korean men take a rest in Pyongyang, North Korea, Saturday, March 31, 2018. From aging crooners to bubbly K-Pop starlets, some of South Korea’s biggest pop stars flew to North Korea on Saturday for rare performances that highlight the sudden thaw in inter-Korean ties after years of tensions over the North’s nuclear ambitions. (Korea Pool via AP) SEOUL, South Korea – From aging crooners to bubbly K-Pop starlets, some of South Korea’s biggest pop stars flew to North Korea on Saturday for rare performances that highlight the sudden thaw in inter-Korean ties after years of tensions over the North’s nuclear ambitions.The concerts in Pyongyang on Sunday and Tuesday come ahead of a historic summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and South Korean President Moon Jae-in at a border village on April 27. The meeting, which will precede a planned summit between Kim and President Donald Trump in May, could prove to be significant in the global diplomatic push to resolve the standoff over the North’s nuclear weapons and missiles program.The 120-member group that flew to Pyongyang also included government officials, reporters and a taekwondo demonstration team that will perform in Pyongyang on Sunday and Monday. Another team of 70 South Korean technicians went to Pyongyang on Thursday to set up equipment.Singer Yoon Do-hyun, who previously performed in Pyongyang in 2002, was emotional after landing in the North Korean capital.“My heart is bursting,” Yoon told reporters, his eyes welling up with tears. “I am most curious about the reaction of the audience, how it would be different from 16 years ago.”The artists were greeted by Hyon Song Wol, the photogenic leader of Kim Jong Un’s hand-picked Moranbong girl band who has been working out the details of the performances with South Korean officials.“Your arrival in Pyongyang brings big expectations,” she said. “A lot of famous singers have come.”A look at the South Korean singers who made the trip and a certain horse-dancing specialist who didn’t:___THE LEGENDDuring stormier times, North Korea described the South’s society and culture as a “corrupt bourgeois lifestyle.” Still, that didn’t stop southern pop singers from performing across the border when relations warmed.It’s the second trip for the iconic Cho Yong-pil, perhaps South Korea’s most influential musician of the past 50 years. He staged a solo concert in Pyongyang in 2005 during a previous era of rapprochement between the rivals.“It will be as comfortable performing in the North as it is to perform in the South,” the 68-year-old singer said at a news conference at South Korea’s Gimpo Airport on Saturday. “There’s no reason for me or other singers to be nervous. We all finished rehearsing and will have a fun and comfortable time showing our music.”Seoul hasn’t officially announced the titles of the songs by the South Korean artists. Cho’s “Dear Friend,” a ballad about a long-lost friend that reportedly drew an enthusiastic response from the Pyongyang crowd 13 years ago, will almost certainly be one of them.It would be the third North Korean performances for female balladeers Choi Jin-hee and Lee Sun-hee, who are relatively well-known in the North.The 61-year-old Choi will likely sing her biggest hit, “Maze of Love,” which is rumoured to have been a favourite of former North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, the late father of current leader Kim. Lee, who at 53 still might have the best pipes in the business, may sing “To J,” one of several South Korean songs North Korean musicians performed during the Pyeongchang Winter Olympics.“I hope we can create a stage where we can make an emotional connection and convey the warm feelings between the South and North,” Choi said.___THE GIRLSIt won’t be all slow ballads in Pyongyang. It will be interesting to see how the North Koreans reacts to girl band Red Velvet, currently one of the most popular acts in the highly competitive K-Pop scene.The genre, which has a huge following across Asia, has been defined by synthesized music, powerful visuals and dance moves, and teasing sexuality. In recent years, South Korea’s military has used K-Pop for psychological warfare, blaring it from loudspeakers along the heavily armoured border between the rivals.“Happiness! Hello, it’s Red Velvet!” band member Seulgi cheerfully shouted during the news conference.“We’re the ‘maknae’ (youngest of the group), so we will make sure to deliver our bright energy to the North,” said the 24-year-old.K-Pop groups have performed before in North Korea. The now-disbanded Sechs Kies and Fin.K.L sang and danced in Pyongyang in 1999, as did boy band Shinhwa in 2003. Some of the artists said later that the reaction from the audience was awkward and quiet.Red Velvet may find a better reception more than a decade later as cultural tastes change, even in isolated North Korea. Currently, the most popular music act in North Korea is Hyon’s Moranbong band, whose members often perform suggestive shimmies in short skirts with electric guitars.Park Hyeong-il, an official at South Korea’s Unification Ministry, said North Korean officials didn’t show any discomfort about Red Velvet and also didn’t take issue with the “red” in the band’s name.Red Velvet is originally a five-member band, but only four made the trip to Pyongyang — 22-year-old Joy stayed in South Korea to film a soap opera.___NO ‘GANGNAM STYLE,’ PLEASEDespite constant questioning from reporters, South Korean officials aren’t offering a clear explanation on why PSY, the “Gangnam Style” singer, was left out of the concert lineup.South Korea’s culture ministry spokesman Hwang Seong-un said without specifying that the YouTube rapper had been initially considered for the Pyongyang events before being excluded. He said he couldn’t confirm a media report that North Korean officials had rejected PSY.“What I can say is that we explored ways to include him, but it didn’t work out,” Hwang said. “We hope there will be better opportunities for him in the future.”It’s possible that officials from either the North or the South concluded that PSY’s bizarre humour and highly sexualized music would be too provocative for the North Korean public.It’s not that North Korea had entirely ignored the global Gangnam Style craze. In September 2012, the North posted a video on its Uriminzokkiri website of a horse-dancing PSY character that had a photo of conservative South Korean presidential candidate Park Geun-hye’s face transposed on it. The lyrics had the character satirically defending Park’s late father, staunch anti-communist dictator Park Chung-hee.Park went on to win the presidential race, only to be ousted from office and jailed over a corruption scandal in March last year.___WILL KIM JONG UN ATTEND?The South Korean singers will perform at the 1,500-seat East Pyongyang Grand Theater on Sunday and then take part in a joint concert with North Korean artists on Tuesday at the 12,000-seat Ryugyong Jong Ju Yong Gymnasium.It’s unclear whether North Korean leader Kim will show up in any of these performances. His presence would be seen in the South as a proper response to Moon’s attending the North Korean performances in February. But Kim also was accused by Seoul in previous years of harshly punishing, and even executing, North Korean officials and people who were caught privately consuming South Korean popular culture.In 2014, South Korea’s spy agency told lawmakers that North Korea used firing squads to execute 10 officials that year for taking bribes or watching South Korean television dramas.___Follow Kim Tong-hyung on Twitter at @KimTongHyung K-Pop time: South Koreans fly to North for rare concertscenter_img by Kim Tong-Hyung, The Associated Press Posted Mar 31, 2018 2:15 am PDT Last Updated Mar 31, 2018 at 8:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more

We cant rely on gas to save us

first_imgBy Poly Pantelides WARNINGS were issued yesterday that not only was Cyprus falling behind in exploitation of its hydrocarbons reserves but also that natural gas should not be seen as the saviour of the economy.The first warning came from the chairman of the Cyprus National Hydrocarbon’s Company, Charles Ellinas, and the second from Finance Minister Harris Georgiades who said that the economy would need to be back on its feet long before any gas was brought onshore.Both men were speaking at a Nicosia-based workshop on hydrocarbons and sustainable development in Cyprus and the Eastern Mediterranean, organised by the University of Nicosia and the German Marshall Fund of the United States, a non-profit body promoting transatlantic cooperation.“I’m afraid to say that we’re gradually falling behind,” Ellinas said, referring to an increasingly competitive environment in a growing global liquefied natural gas (LNG) market.By 2020 at the latest, Cyprus should be able to start LNG exports. “The year 2020 is almost like a watershed,” Ellinas said. “The more Cyprus delays, the harder it will be to find buyers and secure sales contracts. Time is the issue.”Cyprus signed in July a MoU with US-based Noble Energy and its Israeli partners Delek and Avner, with a view to jointly seeking investors for the LNG plant, estimated to cost up to €8 billion.The aim is agree on a special purpose vehicle by December in order to have an entity dedicated at finding the investors, and then to secure an engineering procurement construction (EPC) agreement with a contractor to start works on the LNG plant by early 2016.Noble energy is expected to announce the results of its appraisal drilling at the Aphrodite gas field in October to update its 2011 estimates on the natural gas prospects.Other companies have exploration licenses on other offshore blocks, and the more gas is found, the better Cyprus’ outlook in securing long-term buyers.But a lot of this is uncertain and Cyprus needs to focus on what is within its control, said senior consultant with global engineering and consulting firm Pöyry, Anastasios Giamouridis. Cyprus can control costs and the relationships it fosters with customers, Giamouridis said. This requires scrutinising contracts and pushing economies of scale, he added.In the meantime, a gas master plan needs to be developed, Ellinas said. “We are behind, we need to do it,” he said. He also added that as part of the master plan, authorities needed to simplify and modernise procedures to enable big companies to do business more easily.Ellinas reiterated the need for young Cypriots to seek training abroad in order to be able to find higher skill employment in the natural gas sector. About a third of some 7,500 jobs created as part of construction of a Cyprus-based LNG plant could go to lower skilled Cypriots, Ellinas said. But locals need to seize training and learning opportunities and bodies need to coordinate to maximise employment opportunities for Cypriots, Ellinas added.Georgiades, also a keynote speaker at the workshop said that Cyprus could not rely on hydrocarbons to fix its economy.“We are not basing our hopes for recovery on hydrocarbons… That’s an over and above prospect,” he said.Georgiades said that Cyprus was now on a correction path following an international €10 billion bailout in March and a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) which has given authorities the “necessary discipline” to enforce structural reforms within a defined timeframe.In the medium-term, Cyprus should see revenues from its natural gas resources, Georgiades said adding the government was speeding up the necessary processes.But Cyprus needs to rebuild its economy and lay strong foundations to “maximise prospects,” he added.Georgiades said Cyprus had avoided the risk of a full collapse of the banking system that followed the EU decision to seize people’s deposits to recapitalise banks.“The worst is behind us as far as the banking system is concerned,” Georgiades said. “We have exited the danger zone and we are now on a correction path.”The minister reiterated that capital controls would be lifted in the next few months.Georgiades pledged that the administration would correct the public deficits created in the past, not through additional tax hikes but by rationalising expenditure.“There is still a lot of fat in the area of expenditure and public administration,” he said.You May LikeKelley Blue BookConsidering a Hyundai Genesis?
