PAHO calls for hefty taxes on fatty, salty, sugary foods

first_imgGiven that Cardiovascular Diseases (CVDs) is one of the main causes of death among Guyanese, specialists at the Pan American Health Organisation (PAHO) believe that Guyana should implement heavy taxes on unhealthy foods in a bid to reduce the high yearly deaths caused by hypertension and diabetes among others.PAHO specialist in the Health System Services Paul EdwardsSpecialist in the Health System Services, Paul Edwards told workshop participants on Monday at the Marriott Hotel, Georgetown, that the Government should move towards implementing such taxes in a bid to motivate locals to eat healthier.He explained that Guyana has adapted to a lifestyle of using too many unhealthy foods in their diet.Edwards argued, “Guyana is not immune to the effects of globalisation as western lifestyles have infiltrated our culture causing unhealthy modifications to our diet. We now consume more foods high in trans fats and salts, sit in front of the television, or computer for hours at a time, in addition to having a higher per capita of alcohol consumption than most of our Caribbean and Latin American counterparts”.It is against this backdrop that he called for new measures to be implemented. “Best buys are cost-effective interventions that are feasible to be implemented even in low resource settings have been identified by the World Health Organisation (WHO) for prevention and control of Cardiovascular Diseases”.Along with increasing taxes on unhealthy foods, the PAHO representative said that healthy meals should also be provided for school children, as this plays a vital role on the children’s ability to learn and function well.While listing a few examples of the measures which can be introduced, he outlined, “Comprehensive tobacco control policy, taxation to reduce intake of foods that are high in fat, sugar and salt, building walking and cycle paths to increase physical activity, strategies to reduce the harmful use of alcohol and providing healthy school meals for children”.Edwards was at the time sharing remarks at the event geared at tackling the scourge on behalf of the PAHO/WHO representative to Guyana, William Adu-Krow.He further shared some global statistics to support his argument. According to him, CVDs happen to fall under the list of the most popular ways to die globally.In fact, some 17.9 million people died from CVDs in 2016, representing 31 per cent of all global deaths. The specialist further shared that 85 per cent of those deaths were caused by heart attack and stroke while three-quarters of those deaths occurred in low and middle-income countries.The PAHO representative stressed that this phenomenon in such countries is supported by the fact that integrated primary healthcare programmes are not available for early detection and treatment when compared to individuals who live in high-income countries.“Those persons living in low and middle-income countries suffer from CVDs and other non-communicable diseases have less access to effective and equitable healthcare services which respond to their needs,” he pointed out.As a result of this hurdle, many persons end up dying young, Edwards stated.On that note, he reminded that in Guyana the leading causes of death are heart disease, hypertension (high blood pressure), stroke, diabetes and cancer – illnesses that are all related.The two-day workshop being hosted at the Marriott Hotel will see doctors from all 10 Administrative Regions joining forces to deal with the CVD’s which plague locals.Facilitating the sessions which wind down today is Dr Kenneth Connel from Barbados who shared some of the popular barriers to controlling one’s blood pressure, often referred to as BP.These include limited access and poor adherence to treatment by patients and lack of adequate time with patients, by doctors.Just last year it was revealed by Public Health Minister Volda Lawrence that Cardiovascular Diseases account for some 32 per cent of deaths in Guyana.She highlighted that this arises from the fact that Guyanese tend to pay very little attention to their symptoms and other health-related issues.Currently, health and well-being is third on the list of developing sustainable development goals.last_img read more

Rain posing challenges for farmers

first_imgThe local airport weather station posted a high of twenty degrees or better this year, on each of the final two days of September, with 20.3 degrees on Tuesday and 21.8 on Wednesday.That made it four days in the twenty plus category for the month, and if lifted the average daily high to 15 degrees, right in line with what Environment Canada lists as the local area September norm.However, it was a different story when it comes to precipitation as the final monthly total was 74.9 millimeters, making in the wettest September since 2009 when the station posted about the same amount at 75.1.- Advertisement -That’s about 30 millimeters more than the weather bureau’s recorded average for the month, at 44.7, and we note again we got almost that much on one day this year, a record 42.6 millimeters on the second.After the farm fields dried out from that we got a three week series of wet days, five of them with posted totals of from two and half to 10 and half millimeters.So it’s quite likely many local area farmers could spend Thanksgiving Day in the field, because even if the current forecast is accurate, and clear skies return tonight, it’s likely to be Sunday before many of them can get going again.Advertisement In addition, there’s no way to guarantee the dry weather will even extend through the holiday weekend, but here’s an encouraging statistic, from October 4th through the 12th last year we had seven dry days, and two others with less than a millimeter of rain.However, this is not as encouraging, in the same nine day period in 2012, we had about 15 millimeters, and in 2009, about 12 centimeters of snow.last_img read more

LADIES GAELIC: SHOCK AS CAVAN BEAT DEFENDING CHAMPIONS DONEGAL

first_imgLADIES GAELIC FOOTBALL: Cavan 1-09 Donegal 1-08DONEGAL surrendered the Senior Ulster title they won for the first time last year in today’s Ulster semi-final in Co Tyrone as Cavan went away from Killyclogher one point winners.It’s well-known that a number of Donegal players have travelled to America this summer, but a number of others also chose to leave the panel following promotion to Division One last month. That aside, Cavan would have been some people’s favourites today – so Donegal’s defeat by the narrowest of margins will be all the more painful.Amber Barrett opened the scoring for Donegal but ace forward Aisling Doonan levelled things up for Cavan early on.Donegal’s Karen Guthrie and Doonan (free) traded scores before points from Doonan, Rooney and Caitriona Smith moved Cavan into a 0-05 to 0-03 interval lead.Doonan was virtually unplayable and continued her free-scoring form into the second half, with Cavan 0-08 to 0-05 clear before Donegal launched a revival. Milford’s Amber Barrett hit home a goal to give the holders a 1-06 to 0-8 lead but Cavan responded in kind through Amy Rooney and the scene was set for a thrilling finish.Yvonne McMonagle cut Cavan’s lead to a single point but the brilliant Doonan put two between them again.McMonagle reduced the deficit to the bare minimum again but Cavan held out to secure a famous win at senior level.They will now play Monaghan in the final after they caused an upset with a huge 3-14 to 2-04 win over Armagh.Donegal will feel this was another trophy that got away.

Building a Small House in the White Mountains

first_imgCrash and recovery – Spring 2013I knew that building a house would be challenging, but our first significant issue arose while the lot was still just a pile of felled trees. Approximately one week before we expected to break ground and with no warning, our friend and builder called to let us know that he wasn’t comfortable working on our house build anymore. It was related to the budget and our desire to push energy efficiency goals towards the net zero house concept.It’s also possible he thought we would be too high-maintenance because we were getting so invested in the project from a building science perspective. There was an opportunity to discuss and work out the budget and house spec issues, but we made the decision that it was best to move on.We were pretty devastated by this development, but decided to push forward and seek other options. We solicited information from several well-known companies in the Northeast that specialize in high-performance building including an architectural firm, modular companies, and custom builders. After exploring options, taking into account our budget and builder availability, we narrowed down our choices to quotes from two contractors that had experience with energy-efficient building. The options and quotes from each company were similar. We made a decision and signed a contract in early July 2013. Editor’s note: This is the first in a series of blogs chronicling the design and construction of a house owned by Brian Post and Kyra Salancy. RELATED ARTICLES Pretty Good, Not So Big Maine HouseThe Potwine Passivhaus in AmherstKicking the Tires on a Passivhaus ProjectThe Pretty Good HouseMartin’s Pretty Good House ManifestoGreen Building for Beginners Breaking Ground – Summer 2013We had spent the past year frequently visiting the lot and slowly clearing trees, so it was pretty shocking to see how much change can happen once a 24-ton excavator was on site. Within just a few days in mid-July 2013, we had a cleared building site and a rough driveway passable by car (see Images #5 and #6, below).This was exciting, but the start of major work was stressful to building novices like ourselves. The initial site work was more expensive than expected and the shallow soil had already started to impact some plans. We were hoping to bury the power lines from the pole at the road to the house, but that wasn’t going to be possible due to the amount of ledge.Work started in early August on foundation prep. I visited the site on a very rainy morning to see lots of activity; trucks of crushed stone were arriving with a small excavator buzzing back and forth to prep for the slab. The heavy rain that morning was actually helpful because it showed some of the water patterns on site; an extra load of crushed stone was brought in to slightly elevate and provide more drainage under the slab.Slab Prep 08-09-2013 from Brian Post.The next layers that needed to be installed before the slab could be poured were a layer of rigid foam insulation and a vapor barrier. Before that could happen, though, we had to get the plumber and electrician on site to do their sub-slab work. This was scheduled to happen in mid August. Planning and tree cuttingMy girlfriend (now wife), Kyra, and I started to think about building. She was living in Portland, Maine, at the time and was spending many weekends at the house I was renting in Jackson.At the time, I thought that energy-efficient building meant going with fiberglass-insulated 2×6 walls instead of 2×4 walls. The GBA community should take note of this, because those of us engrossed in building science talk need to remember the knowledge level of the general public.While we had no building experience, the concept of a small energy-efficient house was on our minds. Aside from being outdoorsy people who are concerned with environmental issues, I’m sure that the energy efficiency theme arose in part because of the drafty and cold house I was renting at the time.Our initial building discussions included everything from a temporary yurt to kit homes. I remember the breakthrough came when I typed something along the lines of “small energy efficient building in cold climates” into Google. I stumbled upon the GO Home Passive House from GO Logic. That was it — that was along the lines of what we wanted.This discovery led to research via books, online forums (including GBA), blogs, architect and builder websites, the Passive House movement, the “net zero” concept, house visits, and more.With our new knowledge and an idea of what we wanted to build, we connected with a friend and local builder. He had just completed a really nice house that incorporated continuous exterior insulation, solid construction, an HRV, a PV array, and more. We had rough plans, a budget, and were on schedule to break ground after the spring road weight limits were lifted (see Image #3, below). During the fall of 2012 and the winter that followed, we spent time up at the lot cutting down trees, burning brush, and marking the house footprint (see Image #4).Taking Down Trees – 11/09/2012 from Brian Post. ARTICLES BY BRIAN POST Pouring the Slab and Framing the WallsWindows, Housewrap, and Roofing UnderlaymentSiding and Interior Finish Work in New Hampshire Finishing Touches for a Pretty Good House in New Hampshire I hired a local company to survey the lot, design a septic plan, and apply for approval from the state. The first step involved getting a small excavator on the land to dig test pits. The initial pits confirmed that the soil is shallow (2 feet or less to ledge), but the operator found deeper soil (4 feet+) in a flatter area towards the back of the lot. The design and approval process stretched out over the summer of 2012, but the design was finally approved and I closed on the lot in early September (see Image #2, below). We’re the GCsThe arrangement was that we would act as general contractors, and that our main subcontractor would handle the slab, framing, sheathing, window installation, door installation, and insulation. In addition, he would provide advice on mechanical choices. We would be responsible for site work, electrical, plumbing, HVAC, roof, siding, and all finish work.Some of the main house specs included:R-20 monolithic slabR-40+ double-stud wall insulated with dense-packed celluloseR-70+ cellulose in the atticAn air leakage rate of 0.60 ACH @ 50 Pascals or lessAn exhaust ventilation system using Panasonic bath fans and passive air inletsA ductless minisplit for heating/cooling. (We dropped the wood stove idea from our initial plans.)Nearly two months after we were expecting to break ground, we were back on track to have a house built in 2013. Brian Post is a photographer and website builder. He lives in Jackson, New Hampshire with his wife, Kyra Salancy, and a fluffy black dog. When not working on their house, Brian and Kyra enjoy climbing and skiing in the White Mountains. Editor’s note: This is Part 1 of a multi-part blog series on the construction of Brian and Kyra’s home in New Hampshire. Here is a link to Part 2: Pouring the Slab and Framing the Walls. In late April of 2012, I signed a purchase agreement on a one-acre lot in the small town of Jackson, New Hampshire. Much of Jackson is bordered by the White Mountain National Forest. The lot is located in a quiet residential area next to Black Mountain Ski Area at an elevation of 1,400 feet. The lot has some drawbacks such as an abundance of rock and exposed ledge, but is relatively flat (for Jackson) and has great southern exposure.Like the rest of New England, Jackson experiences the classic four seasons, with cold and snowy winters often being the topic of discussion. For any weather geeks out there, the Mount Washington Observatory has a permanent weather station on the summit of its namesake mountain. This is located 10 miles northwest of the lot.One of the terms of the purchase agreement allowed me to apply for an approved septic system design from the state of New Hampshire before closing. Theoretically, this would mean that a standard septic system could be installed and the lot could be built on.last_img read more

KKR vs KXIP preview: Kings brace for tough Knights

first_imgIt will be a battle to savour when Kolkata Knight Riders and Kings XI Punjab clash in Qualifier 1 at the Eden Gardens on Tuesday.While the hosts are on a high after registering seven wins in a row, KXIP have been the most impressive team this season and deservedly topped the points table.But as KKR skipper Gautam Gambhir said, it will be a new day and more importantly a big stage. While coming first and second in the group stage gives the two teams the cushion of having another crack at the final berth if they lose on Tuesday, they would look to grab a place in the final at the first attempt. But all plans could go for a toss as rain is in the air. Thundershowers on Monday afternoon meant neither team could train.The forecast is similar for Tuesday as well. If there is no result on Tuesday, the teams will lock horns on Wednesday – the reserve day.The Eden Gardens has been a fortress for Kolkata as they are yet to lose a match here this season and the local support has been amazing. Even on Monday, hundreds of people were seen braving the rain to queue up outside the Mohammedan Sporting ground to buy tickets for Tuesday’s match.While both the Orange Cap and Purple Cap in the to the KKR camp, courtesy Robin Uthappa and Sunil Narine, the team would be pleased with the way out-of-touch Yusuf Pathan showed a touch of his old self against SunRisers Hyderabad on Saturday.advertisementWith the Eden wicket having quite a bit of grass, the likes of Morne Morkel have also thrived. But KXIP can’t be taken lightly and KKR know that well. Not only do they have the likes of Glenn Maxwell, David Miller, George Bailey and Manan Vohra to start with, even wicketkeeper Wriddhiman Saha seems to have turned a new leaf with the bat. And one can never discount the veteran Virender Sehwag.The bowling unit might not other than Mitchell Johnson, but the likes of Sandeep Sharma and Akshar Patel have got noticed. Even senior campaigners like L. Balaji have pitched in.While Gambhir doesn’t believe too much in momentum, Bailey does. The fact that after losing a couple of matches in the middle of the season KXIP are back to winning ways, gives him confidence.”I don’t want to give away too much, but we would definitely like to repeat what we did against KXIP in the group stages,” KKR coach Trevor Bayliss said. “While we had lost the first match, I feel we did very well against them in the second game. We have to be on our game and considering the kind of talent they have, we have to concentrate on doing our job well,” he said.Bayliss said players of Sehwag’s calibre can turn any game on its head.”He is still a very dangerous player. Maybe the consistency falls a bit with such players, but it doesn’t mean they can’t win matches singlehandedly. He has done well in different stages in the tournament and can be very destructive. We will look to get him early,” he said.Commenting on his team’s dream run, Bayliss said he would still like to see the bowling improve.”Apart from that, I can’t see too many areas that we need to work on. We are at the top of our game and have peaked at the right time.”KXIP coach Sanjay Bangar said he is not too worried about KKR’s seven-match winning streak. “Past records don’t indicate anything. All the teams in the playoffs are here because they have done well. We have been doing well for a longer time,” he said.While the Eden crowd can be daunting for the opposition, Bangar is looking forward to the occasion. “Eden produces great cricket and the crowd will add to the atmosphere. We will revel in the conditions,” he said.last_img read more
