The best and worst countries to be a mother

first_imgThis Sunday is Mother’s Day in the United States, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico and various other countries (excluding Costa Rica, where it’s celebrated August 15).But in some countries, there is more to celebrate than in others. On average, one woman in 30 is likely to die from pregnancy-related causes, and seven out of 10 women will lose a child in their lifetime.Despite global improvements in children’s and maternal health, inequality between the world’s richest and poorest mothers and children is widening, according to this year’s mother index released by the international non-governmental organization Save the Children.The index shows where mothers and children living in urban areas face the least and the greatest hardships regarding women’s and children’s health and economic well-being, among other aspects.The world’s best countries for mothers to raise children are less of a surprise: Norway, Finland and Iceland. The United States, however, slipped from the 31st spot last year to the 33rd.Costa Rica ranked 45 out of a 179 countries this year, slipping six spots from 39 last year. In Latin America, only Argentina (36) and Cuba (40) ranked higher.Mexico was ranked 53, Panama 78, El Salvador 80, Nicaragua 102, Honduras, 109 and Guatemala 129.You can click on individual countries in our map at this link to see how they rank. The State of the World’s Mothers, 2015 Lazaro Gamio/The Washington PostMost countries at the bottom of the ranking are located in sub-Saharan Africa: Out of the 179 countries surveyed, Somalia, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Central African Republic perform worst. Nearly all of the bottom-ranked countries are affected by conflict.Why education matters so much in the rankingDue to the limited availability of comparable data, the index took into account factors that determine a woman’s as well as a child’s well being. The report’s authors focused on five factors in compiling the index: maternal health, children’s well being, economic wealth of a country, and the participation of women in national politics in order to be able to shape policies and debates.Also factored into the index were the average years of formal schooling for children. In Costa Rica, that’s 13.9 years and in Guatemala it’s 10.6 years. The average for industrialized countries is 16 years of formal schooling.“Numerous studies show a robust relationship between years of schooling and a number of important life outcomes, including income, health and civic participation,” Kathryn Bolles, the Children’s Director of Health and Nutrition for Save the Children, told The Washington Post.Educated girls are also more likely to delay early marriage and motherhood which greatly improved the likelihood that they and their children will survive childbirth.Growing inequality endangers mothers and their children worldwideIn more developed nations, other factors such as the ability of mothers to pursue careers or child benefits would be likely to play a role, as well.“But as the majority of women in most developing countries do not have access to these benefits, it was not the single best indicator of economic status available,” said Bolles, explaining the decision to focus on child development indicators.In the report, Save the Children urges that more resources need to be committed to tackling inequality in urban areas all over the globe.“Increasingly, these preventable deaths are occurring in city slums, where overcrowding and poor sanitation exist alongside skyscrapers and shopping malls,” the authors conclude. In the lowest-ranked countries, children growing up in poverty are three to five times more likely to die than those with wealthy parents.Among high-income capitals, Washington D.C. has the highest infant death risk. The finding that Washington D.C. performs worst in terms of infant deaths among 25 high-income global capital cities might surprise some. Whereas on average between 7 and 8 infants in Washington die out of 1,000 children, the number was as low as 2 in Prague, Oslo, Stockholm and Tokyo.The authors argue that the high level of infant deaths in Washington is rooted in “pervasive poverty, young and uninformed mothers and poor prenatal care.” They also consider race to be a factor — with black mothers and families being over-proportionally affected.In terms of politics, some developing countries outperform wealthier nationsAnother finding of the index that could come unexpected is that Western nations are not as uniquely advanced in terms of women in politics as some might believe.“Countries like Rwanda, Bolivia, and Cuba are doing a much better job of ensuring more equal representation of women in national parliament than many Western nations are, such as the United States, Ireland and Japan,” Bolles said.In Costa Rica, 33.3 percent of legislative seats are held by women, compared to 19.5 percent in the U.S. (the world average is 22 percent, according to the report).Why did political representation matter so much to the authors of the mother’s index?“When women have a voice in politics, issues that are important to mothers and their children are more likely to surface on the national agenda and emerge as national politics,” Bolles said.The organization’s overall conclusion follows her line of argumentation. Even in countries that face conflicts and wars, the situation of mothers and their children could be improved — if there were a political willingness to do so, according to the study.“Some African countries, such as Eritrea, Ethiopia and Liberia have reduced their under-5 mortality rate by two-thirds or more since 1990,” Bolles said.—Noack writes about foreign affairs.

Industry Reacts Lawmakers Introduce Guaranteed Fee Bill

first_img Share In an attempt to prevent increases in fees paid by individuals seeking a mortgage through the GSEs when those fees are used to fund unrelated federal spending, Senators David Perdue and Bob Menendez, Chairman and Ranking Member of the Senate Banking Committee’s Subcommittee on Housing, Transportation, and Community Development, released a bill to regulate the usage of guaranteed fees (G-Fees).“It’s time for Congress to cut the budget gimmicks and back-door tax hikes on middle class Americans,” said Senator Perdue, a member of the Senate Banking and Budget Committees, in a statement. “Any increase of guarantee fees should be used to protect taxpayers from mortgage losses, not as an artificial offset whenever Congress decides to spend more money. Ultimately, the federal government should budget responsibly for its needs, just like people in the real world.”The bill has received support from key real estate and mortgage experts.“The National Association of Realtors commends Senators David Perdue and Bob Menendez for taking action to secure America’s housing finance system,” said National Association of Realtors President John Smaby. “By preventing Congress from using GSE revenues to fund unrelated federal government spending, this legislation will help to protect taxpayers and countless potential homebuyers, ensuring Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac can continue helping families and credit worthy individuals achieve the American Dream. This is the mission Congress outlined for the GSEs when they were first chartered, and NAR will continue working with Congress to support the critical role Fannie and Freddie play in our housing market.”“MBA applauds Senators Perdue and Menendez for their commitment to protect current and future homeowners from unnecessary costs,” said Mortgage Bankers Association President and CEO Bob Broeksmit. “Guarantee fees are a critical risk management tool used by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac to protect against losses. Any increase of these fees that is not related to housing is effectively a tax on home ownership. MBA will continue to advocate on behalf of policies that both ensure a healthy real estate market and provide consumers with affordable, sustainable housing choices.” May 15, 2019 835 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, News, Originationcenter_img Fannie Mae Freddie Mac Guaranteed Fees Servicing 2019-05-15 Seth Welborn Industry Reacts: Lawmakers Introduce Guaranteed Fee Billlast_img read more

first_img Top Stories D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ Cardinals expect improving Murphy to contribute right away Yes, every training camp is important as it helps lay the foundation for the upcoming season, but as Dockett points out, the missed time could be very costly for a team breaking in a new quarterback and defensive coordinator.“We’ve missed OTA’s and mini camps and all the chemistry things we would have done during the summer,” Dockett said. “Now we are just going to get a few short weeks together.”The Cardinals will have a limited amount of time together prior to preseason games so it is imperative they make the most of it.The defense will likely face a learning curve with new defensive coordinator Ray Horton and the offense will have to undergo an adjustment period as well as they adapt to a new quarterback, presumably Kevin Kolb.While every team will have limited training camps, the lockout and shortened offseason really hampered teams going through such personnel changes.The success of these teams will depend on their ability to make the most out of training camp, but if the entire Cardinals roster approaches training camp with the same attitude as Dockett, the team should be just fine. It appears NFL training camp is right around the corner and Arizona Cardinals defensive tackle Darnell Dockett is ready to return to work.“I’ve already packed for training camp,” Dockett told the NFL Network. “I’m just waiting to hear the official word on what day to be in Flagstaff.”Dockett’s enthusiasm is certainly a welcome sight for the Cardinals and their fans as they begin what is a very important training camp.center_img Nevada officials reach out to D-backs on potential relocation What an MLB source said about the D-backs’ trade haul for Greinke 0 Comments   Share   last_img read more

Pillow fight held in Nicosia video

first_imgDozens of people took part in the first ever organised pillow fight event to take place in Cyprus on Saturday.The event, that took place in Phaneromeni Square, aimed at putting Nicosia on the International Pillow Fight map.Despite that organisers expected many more people to show up, with over 500 people signing up to the Facebook event, and almost 2,000 listing themselves as ‘interested’, only dozens attended, some in their pyjamas, although they appeared to have great fun bashing each other with pillows until they burst and the air filled with feathers.Initiated by the Urban Playground Movement – a global group which organises ‘free, fun, non-commercial events’ in the hope of replacing ‘passive, non-social, branded consumption experiences such as watching television’ – International Pillow Fight Day is now an annual event.You May LikeTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionOne Thing All Liars Have in Common, Brace YourselfTruthFinder People Search SubscriptionUndoFigLeaf Beta AppFigLeaf brings You 3 Easy Steps to Privacy on Your Terms…FigLeaf Beta AppUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementTop Cardiologist: Throw Out All Your Gluten Now (Here’s Why)Gundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Cyprus wildlife mysterious and misunderstood

first_imgCyprus has exactly 30 species of wild mammal – hardly a menagerie, barely comparable with the average English family’s pet complement. But what we do have is some of the most interesting – and little known – mammals. Take the Cyprus Mouse (or Mus cypriacus) for instance. Only discovered in 2004, this is a species previously unknown to science – “the only new mammal to enter the European annals in the past century!” exclaims Haris Nicolaou.[smart-photo][/smart-photo]The reason he knows this, is that Haris – our very own David Attenborough – is the author of Wild Mammals of Cyprus, a book which has been 15 years in the making and very much a labour of love for this Forestry Department official. A trained biologist, Haris is responsible for research into, and the conservation and protection of, the island’s wild fauna – a subject in which he has been interested since childhood. “I’ve had a fascination for insects and birds and snakes since I was five years old,” Haris reveals. “I always wanted to study something to do with animals, and though I studied forest management at the University of Cumbria, and then did a masters in experimental molecular biology, my thesis was about the fruit bat of Cyprus – and that’s how I started to become involved in the study of wild mammals.”In fact, the bat is Haris’ favourite animal, and is much in evidence in the book. Of the 30 wild mammals on the island, 19 are species of bat – so understandably they feature quite a bit. “Bats are a very mysterious and misunderstood mammal,” Haris explains. “When I first started my research back in 2003, there was almost no data on the local populations. So I started from zero: exploring caves, mines, and abandoned buildings, collecting data on the different species of Cyprus. Then, after my masters, I began recording all the places with bats on the island,” he continues, adding that he’s since set up a database of locations, “and started to put them under a protection scheme.” Sponsored by the European Union, Haris and his team of bat enthusiasts also worked to guard entrances to the caves, mines, and abandoned buildings – locations where the mammal is under threat.“For example, the fruit bat,” he reveals, “is indigenous to Cyprus, and though it exists in Asia and Africa, our island is the only European country with a population of this species. But, since 2005, the population has decreased by about 85 per cent due to the abandonment of agriculture, a lack of water sources, disturbances to the colonies by people, and the proximity of building development to the colonies – so it’s very important that it is protected.”With such a fall in the bat population of late, snapping photos and gathering data for the book has been “a real challenge” Haris acknowledges. And with every one of the book’s 700 photos taken personally, the author is no stranger to danger. “There was often a lot of time and risk involved in taking these pictures,” he explains. “One particular species of migratory bat only appears on the island for about two months a year, and hides itself away at a particular elevation; it took several years to find and photograph! Then, there was the time I was deep down in a former mine taking pictures when part of the gallery collapsed. It was quite worrying, being nearly trapped half a kilometre inside a mountain, but thank goodness I got out okay!”When you’re this focused on your subject, narrow escapes are all part of the job, it seems. Gathering data on the Mediterranean Monk Seals – “a very rare marine species which breeds on the land in caves; there are only about eight or 10 of the species known to visit our coastline” – in a remote sea cave a few years ago, Haris forgot about the incoming tide. “I was very nearly trapped inside the cave.” But a true professional doesn’t give up… “I went back the next day, this time with scuba gear, and got some great pictures!” he laughs.Along with bats, seals and our newly-discovered mouse, the book also includes reams of information on (and spectacular pictures of) every other local mammal. The long-eared hedgehog (an endemic subspecies found only in Cyprus), the mouflon, two species of shrew (Etruscan and Garden), and the much-maligned fox all make an appearance. “I talk quite a lot about foxes in Wild Mammals,” says Haris. “They’re a very misunderstood animal, hunters seem to think they’re in competition for prey, but that’s not the case at all. Actually, the fox is very useful in the ecosystem, they eat a lot of rats and other diseased animals, and get rid of carrion.“I’ve actually managed to include every single wild mammal on the island, as well as a great deal of information on mammals of the past – pygmy hippos and elephants, a type of wild cat and a wild boar, to name just a few,” says Haris with quiet pride. “In 2015 I co-authored a book called Amphibians and Reptiles of Cyprus – there was much more data available on these types of animals – but my real goal has always been to write and print a book on the mammals. And it was kind of a deal I made with myself: I had to photograph every single mammal before I could go ahead and publish!”A mere six months ago, Haris achieved his goal, and since has managed to publish his glorious compendium with the help of the Cyprus Forest Association. “All of the profit from the book goes to them and will be put to good use. I don’t want any money from this,” Haris concludes. “I didn’t write it for the money, I wrote it because I wanted to share my knowledge and love of local fauna with the public: I want people to discover the incredibly rich biodiversity of this island, and learn about how we can protect it. So I’ve created something that I hope will really intrigue the reader: not too much text but instead something you can flick through, learn from, and really enjoy.” Wild Mammals of Cyprus By Haris Nicolaou costs €45 and is available from all good bookshops on the island, as well as Amazon and Amazon UK You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

Nicosia ICU has only four doctors out of the ten needed to

first_imgSTATE doctors announced on Thursday that for the next three days there would be no afternoon on-call doctors at the Nicosia intensive care unit (ICU).The head of the ICU, Theodoros Kyprianou said that doctors in the unit are exhausted from working “to the limits of their human strength”.ICU doctors, he said, have been working overtime all last month trying to cover all shifts, but that this is to the detriment of patients as an overworked doctor cannot take prompt and proper decisions that are necessary when working in such a department.He added that after three months of asking for help, the health ministry only arranged a meeting with them on Wednesday to seek solutions.Kyprianou said that at the moment there are only four doctors in the ICU of the 10 needed.The solution, he said, is not the transfer of three doctors who do not wish to be there.Permanent Secretary of the health ministry, Christina Yiannaki said that they have found two doctors who agreed to temporarily work at the ICU until another physician from Greece assumes duties in March. The two physicians will start working at the ICU on Monday. One of them will work there until the end of the month and the other until the end of February.The ministry, she said, is also working to buy the services of another physician for the ICU, while a Greek doctor is expected to assume duties at the beginning of March. You May LikeSecurity SaversWindows Users Advised To Do This TodaySecurity SaversUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
