first_imgBy U.S. Embassy in Colombia July 09, 2020 On July 1, the U.S. government, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), delivered 200 portable ventilators to Colombia for intensive care units.The U.S.-manufactured ventilators are highly specialized, cutting-edge, compact medical equipment to treat COVID-19 patients with severe symptoms. The USAID donation also includes training for the correct use and maintenance of this specialized equipment.The U.S. Ambassador in Colombia, Philip S. Goldberg, said: “For more than half a century, the United States has been the main contributor to worldwide health and humanitarian assistance. In fact, we were the first country to donate 15 ventilators to Colombia when this crisis began, and with this donation the United States is now the country that has donated the most ventilators to Colombia, and it’s an example of how generous the American people are, while we fight against this virus at home in the United States and together with our partner nations abroad.”In addition to this donation, the United States has provided more than $30 million in assistance to combat the pandemic. Through USAID, it has equipped health centers and hospitals along the Pacific coast in Nariño (Tumaco, Barbacoas, Francisco Pizarro) and the Catatumbo region, including the delivery of food and money transfers in areas with a high concentration of Venezuelan migrants and indigenous populations.The United States provides support to save lives, coordinating with the Colombian government and other stakeholders to identify priority areas for investment. As the threat of an infectious disease anywhere can become a threat everywhere, the United States calls on other donors to contribute to the global effort to combat COVID-19.last_img read more

first_img“Pensionskassen should build know-how or start by paying specialists in one segment to better be able to judge asset managers,” he said.It was easier for large players to get better fee structures because of economies of scale, Meier added.He said he was particularly worried about the trend for Swiss Pensionskassen to invest in assets such as insurance-linked securities or private debt solely for return reasons.“Many pension funds do not fully understand the risks and in Switzerland we lack historic experience with the investments,” he explained.High exposure to corporate bonds was a “possible ticking time bomb”, Meier warned, as the “additional credit risk is often underestimated”.Meier has been researching alternative investments for many years, and up until the summer he taught this subject at the ZHAW.The debate on costs in Swiss pension portfolios has been fuelled by the low interest rate environment as well as the obligation for Pensionskassen to fully disclose total expense ratios.In some cases cautious strategies have led to Swiss pension funds cutting out alternative investments entirely.However, recent research by consultancy Siglo showed competition and demand had already brought down fees in some alternative segments such as senior secured loans. Additionally, the most recent risk study by consultancy Complementa revealed higher cost strategies outperformed last year. The trend to diversify as much as possible into alternative investments is based on a “misunderstanding”, according to a Swiss economist.Peter Meier, economist and former professor at the ZHAW Zurich University of Applied Sciences, voiced concerns over the trend towards alternatives to delegates at the Institutional Retirement and Investor Summit organised by Barbara Bertolini in Vienna this week.“Swiss Pensionskassen are often invested in too many different strategies and are paying too much money for them,” he said.He urged medium-sized and smaller pension funds to instead specialise and get familiar with one or two strategies.last_img read more

first_imgScience Daily 16 July 2012Poor people hold more traditional values toward marriage and divorce than people with moderate and higher incomes, UCLA psychologists report in the current issue of the Journal of Marriage and Family. The findings are based on a large survey about marriage, relationships and values, analyzed across income groups. They raise questions about how effectively some $1billion in government spending to promote the value of marriage among the poor is being spent. “A lot of government policy is based on the assumption that low-income people hold less traditional views about marriage,” said Benjamin Karney, a UCLA professor of psychology and senior author of the study. “However, the different income groups do not hold dramatically different views about marriage and divorce — and when the views are different, they are different in the opposite direction from what is commonly assumed. People of low income hold values that are at least as traditional toward marriage and divorce, if not more so.”http://www.sciencedaily.com/releases/2012/07/120716163241.htmlast_img read more

first_img Press Association Chelsea playmaker Juan Mata has been advised to trust Jose Mourinho as the man who transformed Cristiano Ronaldo. Mourinho has spoken of a dislike of Chelsea’s recent playing style and the project of adapting it. With Oscar Mourinho’s preferred playmaking number 10, the left-footed Mata is tasked with a wide right role which necessitates tracking back in defence. Holland referred to Mata performing a similar role under Andre Villas-Boas in his first season at Chelsea following his signing from Valencia, before he was made the attacking lynch-pin under Roberto Di Matteo, a role he continued last term under Rafael Benitez. “Having to adapt – and Jose has used that phrase – is nothing particularly new here,” Holland added. “It’s another adaptation that is required. Juan has shown in his time here that he’s more than capable of doing that. And I’m sure that will be the case this time.” As part of the style overhaul, Mourinho must manage a host of attacking talent in three strikers – Fernando Torres, Samuel Eto’o and Demba Ba – and six attack-minded midfielders players – Mata, Oscar, Eden Hazard, Willian, Andre Schurrle and Kevin de Bruyne. When Mourinho brought Inter Milan to Stamford Bridge en route to winning the 2010 Champions League, Holland recalls an attacking quartet of Goran Pandev, Diego Milito, Eto’o and Wesley Sneijder who worked like “Trojans” defensively. More recently at Real Madrid, Mourinho had a wealth of attacking talent at his disposal, too. “The challenge, when the balance is loaded offensively like that, is that you don’t just play with the ball, you have to play without the ball as well,” Holland said. “That’s a challenge he (Mourinho) clearly managed to do (at Real Madrid), given the results that he had. “He’s quite clear in his mind, given the success he’s had, what is his recipe for success. I’m quite sure that can be achieved here as well.” Mata did not make mention of his limited role so far this season in his blog, which is through the Chelsea website, instead focusing on winning the Barclays Premier League and Capital One Cup this term, having so far won the Champions League, FA Cup and Europa League in his two seasons with the Blues. To win the League Cup, Chelsea must overcome Swindon at the County Ground in a challenge which is not to be underestimated, Holland says. Holland pointed to recent precedent – Bradford’s march to the final which included wins over Arsenal and Aston Villa, plus Liverpool’s loss to Oldham in the FA Cup – as reason enough for Chelsea to be wary in Wiltshire. “The warning signs are there,” said Holland, reflecting on Chelsea beating League One Brentford in the FA Cup by virtue of a replay. “If you think you’ve got a divine right just to turn up and win games, prepare to be surprised.” World Cup winner Mata is to feature as Chelsea travel to Swindon in the Capital One Cup third round on Tuesday night. Mourinho has told the Spain forward, who has made two starts this term after being near ever-present in his first two seasons at Chelsea, to prove his worth at the County Ground. And Steve Holland has backed the Portuguese to further improve Mata, who was not in the squad for Saturday’s defeat of Fulham and instead trained twice over the weekend. Mourinho’s assistant cited the example of Ronaldo, the world’s most expensive player on his move to Real Madrid who improved his game still further at the Bernabeu. “He (Mourinho) is always pushing, pushing the players to the maximum every day,” Holland said. “That’s evident not just in his teams, but in the individuals he’s worked with. “If you look Jose’s three-year period working with Ronaldo, he’s really evolved as an individual. He’s not just a talented dribbler and runner with the ball who can score goals. “He has become a top-level match-winner who wants to run in behind, make runs, threaten the goal. “I don’t think that just happens. That comes with pushing, even if it’s the best. “On a day-to-day basis he (Mourinho) will be pushing for signs of improvement, working to progress the individual but ultimately for the benefit of the team.” last_img read more

first_img Leinster number eight Heaslip assumed the captaincy after talismanic lock Paul O’Connell was felled by a chest infection on Saturday night. Tries from wing Andrew Trimble and full-back Rob Kearney cemented victory in head coach Joe Schmidt’s first Six Nations clash. Stand-in skipper Jamie Heaslip shrugged off a disallowed try to claim the score that broke Scotland’s resistance in Ireland’s 28-6 RBS 6 Nations victory in Dublin. Unruffled Ireland refused to let Munster lock O’Connell’s absence shake them off their stride, dispatching Scotland in what ultimately became a routine victory. Ireland coped admirably without bullish ball-carriers O’Connell and flanker Sean O’Brien, with Chris Henry and Peter O’Mahony impressing. But Kiwi boss Schmidt will be at pains to warn Ireland just how much of a step up the visit of Wales will prove in round two on Saturday. After the gut-wrenching 24-22 last-gasp loss to New Zealand in November, Ireland were desperate to hit back to winning ways. Objective one complete, Schmidt will demand more when Warren Gatland and Wales roll into town next week. Scotland dominated territory and possession in a gritty first-half, only for Ireland to break that stranglehold in the final exchanges. Scott Johnson has been at pains to build an extra attacking dimension to his Scotland side. The visitors were prepared to whip the ball wide at every turn, but in doing so failed to find sufficient midfield incision. Impressive number eight David Denton powered close after a scrum deep in the Ireland 22, that followed the hosts failing to clear their lines on a number of occasions. After that Scotland were unable to threaten seriously again in the half, with Duncan Weir’s drop-goal fake not leading to any gain. Laidlaw struck the post with a penalty after five minutes, and later he punted to the corner when he should have shot at goal. Scotland lost the ensuing line-out, squandering any points at all in going for the ill-judged jugular of a try. Crucially the hosts kept defensive shape and discipline, admittedly escaping punishment when O’Driscoll was rushed into a blind pass from a set scrum move that gifted Scotland good field position. As time ticked down on the half, Sexton slinked through two Scotland tackles to race from danger zone to the other. The Racing Metro fly-half fired out a pass to captain Heaslip, who cantered down the left wing heading for the corner. The Leinster loose-forward touched down as he rolled the tackle, only for TMO Carlo Damasco to rule him in touch. Ireland sustained the pressure from two driven line-outs in the Scotland 22 though, claiming just reward for persistence when Trimble sneaked home in the right corner. Heaslip capped a water-tight driven line-out as Ireland wrestled control after the break, bundling over to blunt the Scots’ power. Dave Kearney was forced into touch in his own 22 after misreading Weir’s punt into the corner. Toner hit a ruck from the side after the line-out to gift Scotland a penalty, and Laidlaw delivered the points from the tee. Ireland then built tight phases for the first time in the match, Henry blasting in three times, with O’Mahony, Heaslip and Best all burrowing in too. Sexton’s wayward pass handed Scotland a scrum, but Ireland managed to turn it over. Luke Marshall found Dave Kearney with a dangerous wide pass, before Ireland won a penalty with Scotland killing the ball. Ireland punted to the corner, pushing for their second try. And skipper Heaslip delivered after a fine driven line-out, to make up for the score ruled out in the first half. The Leinster loose-forward’s ninth Ireland try in his 61st cap, converted by Sexton, put Ireland in control. Sexton, O’Driscoll and Dave Kearney produced a smart midfield combination that almost unlocked Scotland’s dogged defence. Sean Lamont strayed offside to hand Ireland a kickable penalty, and Sexton slotted his third goal of the day. Weir’s astute chip into the left corner forced Ireland into a pressure line-out five metres from their own line as Scotland battled for a foothold. Replacement Jack McGrath produced a fine turnover to set Ireland back on the front foot, only for Tim Swinson to steal an intercept. Ireland recovered the ascendancy though, with Sexton’s tactical kicking to the fore. And the hosts added their third try when Rob Kearney capped a neat break from Henry, for a score on his 50th cap. Sexton converted to stretch Ireland’s advantage to 22 points, before making way for Ulster’s Paddy Jackson. Schmidt emptied his bench with the match clearly won, with more than one eye on the fast-approaching visit of Wales to Dublin, on Saturday. Scotland’s replacements battled manfully to force some kind of consolation, but in truth the visitors were outclassed. Paddy Jackson’s chip almost put Dave Kearney in for a try at the death, but the TMO ruled it out. Press Associationlast_img read more
