Health gap between rich and poor in the spotlight at UN forum

19 October 2011With the health gap between rich and poor at its widest level in recent history, the United Nations today opened a three-day forum in Brazil to tackle the social, economic and environmental root causes of health inequities. With the health gap between rich and poor at its widest level in recent history, the United Nations today opened a three-day forum in Brazil to tackle the social, economic and environmental root causes of health inequities.“The differences, within and between countries, in income levels, in opportunities, in health status, and in access to care are greater today than at any time in recent history,” UN World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Margaret Chan told representatives of some 120 governments, including 60 health ministers, experts, and civil society organizations in Rio de Janeiro. “A world that is greatly out of balance in matters of health is neither stable nor secure.”The conference, convened by WHO and hosted by the Brazilian Government, comes amid mounting pressure on governments to reduce social inequalities, which have further widened as a result of the global financial crisis. At present, the life expectancy gap between countries is 36 years and there is ample evidence that in all countries – whether low, middle or high-income – an individual’s health is largely determined by his socio-economic position. With the right mix of government policies and coordinated action on local, national and international levels, existing gaps could be narrowed. “Many countries are taking action to reduce socially-determined health gaps but not enough is being done.” WHO said in a news release.“In the context of the global financial crisis, increasing food insecurity, and the challenges of climate change, new strategic approaches will be needed to address the determinants of ill-health.”On Friday, at the end of the conference, governments are expected to endorse a Rio Political Declaration on Social Determinants of Health outlining their agreements and pledges to improve the broader social conditions that affect people’s health. read more

Fedup Asian companies are eyeing Irish relocation because of Brexit

first_imgFed-up Asian companies are eyeing Irish relocation because of Brexit The latest Morgan McKinley employment monitor also suggests the city brain drain is coming to a halt. Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Wednesday 15 Feb 2017, 6:15 AM Feb 15th 2017, 6:15 AM 13,603 Views Source: Shutterstock/baranqA NEW REPORT suggests that Brexit could provide an employment boom in financial services here.The Morgan McKinley employment monitor for February, released today, has found that “large Asian-headquartered investment banks with operations in the UK, unhappy with Brexit, are conducting contingency planning and considering the talent that Ireland has to offer for their operations should they decide to relocate”.The report also finds that things are definitely looking up when it comes to parity between rural and urban jobs in Ireland. Source: Morgan McKinleyRegarding the Brexit fallout  with respect to the Asian banks, their relocation or otherwise “remains to be seen” according to Morgan McKinley’s director of inward investment Trayc Keevans.“But Ireland’s financial services talent pool is well positioned to meet their requirements if they do decide to locate here,” Keevans said.Brain drain reversed?Regarding the rural-urban divide, Keevan says “the dynamic in the IT sector between Irish headquartered companies and US multinational companies has shifted”.In the past, it was difficult for indigenous Irish SMEs to compete with larger multinational companies who could offer better salaries, conditions and access to cutting edge technology. But now we are beginning to see a more level playing field.One in two professional positions that became available in January represented opportunities in the regions as opposed to in Irish cities suggesting a balance being reached as regards the city brain drain. This has mainly been due, according to the report, to the likes of finance professionals being “willing to relocate outside Dublin”.“The overseas technology expansion and hiring plans of US companies have also slowed down as companies wait to see what restrictions if any that the new President of the United States will place on companies holding intellectual property overseas,” said Keevans.Again this has allowed Irish companies well placed to compete for available talent to reap the benefits.Vacancies Number of jobs available in Ireland, January Source: Morgan McKinleyIrish job vacancies in general saw a massive 33% increase month-on-month in January to 11,850. This is actually a 10% decrease on the number of roles available in January 2016 however.The first month of the year is generally seen to be good time to move jobs, with the ‘new year, new start’ philosophy coming to the fore.That has most certainly been the case this year, with Morgan McKinley recording a 56% increase in professionals seeking new jobs here month-on-month.Research and development engineer is the most in-demand profession at present due to further investment in innovation hubs around the country.Read: ‘Time for Dublin to grow up’ – Irish rents are now rising at their fastest rate EVERRead: What on earth is Project Black?

Black Bear PartyCrashes A Ketchikan XC Meet

first_imgA black bear was in first place for a short time during one of the races at the Region V Cross Country meet Saturday in Ketchikan. Teams from around Southeast Alaska faced off for the chance to compete in the state championship. But the event took a chaotic turn when the first race was interrupted by a bear.Download Audio:The first heat of runners to circle the course at Ward Lake was made up of girls from 1, 2 and 3A schools – those are the smaller ones, like Wrangell, Hoonah, Petersberg, Klawock.“Runners set?” an announcer says. A gunshot and cheers ring out.The fastest of these runners is Taylee Nyquest – the only girl on the Thorne Bay cross country team. I followed her coach, Sheila Nyquest, who also happens to be her mom, to the 2-mile marker.“Oh my legs are shakin’. I just get so nervous for her,” Nyquest says. “I get excited for all of them. We are at 12 minutes at the 2 miles mark. If she did three of these it would be 18 of these.”Then Taylee came into site.“Taylee you’re doin’ awesome! You’re at 12-12, just over 6 minutes. Just book it. Your pace is awesome! Go, go, go like the wind!” her mom cheers.Taylee yelled something back, which we weren’t able to make out.“There’s a black bear!”She said: ‘there’s a black bear.’ You can hear someone who was standing on the beach at another part of Ward Lake yell back to her. When I listen back to the tape of her mom and I talking, I can hear Taylee yelling: it’s in a tree! It went into the forest!ACT 4: There’s a black bear on the trail up there. Is she ok? What happened? She had to stop, there’s a black bear on the trail?Thorne Bay School principal Rob O’Neal saw everything from underneath one of the Ward Lake shelters. He even managed to get a blurry picture of the bear on his phone.“Right here, there’s some rocks and the bear’s right there. And then Taylee came through and then boom, the bear shot off. She stops…” O’Neal remembers.And then he and other coaches stopped the rest of the girls right before the two-mile mark because of the bear. They walked back to where all the teams were gathered. But once the bear cleared out, Taylee kept running. She was the only one to finish the race.“Go Taylee! Push, push, push! Go Taylee!”“I was just running and the bear was coming up from the water, and I didn’t want to keep going,” Taylee explains. “So it climbed up into the tree and I yelled back and waited and it went into the forest on the other side so I just kept going.”Taylee wasn’t as worried about the bear as she was about her time.“To be honest, what was going through my head when I had to stop was what could have my time been if I didn’t have to stop?”A committee of coaches and athletic directors decided the 1, 2, and 3A girls would re-run the race, since it was interrupted before the end. Madison James and Marissa Yliniemi from Metlakatla High School were not thrilled about that.“We were running we were in the mojo of it. Then all of a sudden they were like, there’s a bear! And it’s like, are you kidding me? I was doing good! I felt like I did not want to run again. There’s been bears [before] but they’ve never been actually on the course to the point where we had to stop the race.”Since Taylee finished the course the first time, she didn’t have to run it again.Ketchikan High School Activities Director Ed Klein said in the approximately 7 years he’s been here, there has never been a bear situation at an athletic competition. He says the cross country trails are marked, but not cleared of bears before the race.“But it might be something we’ll have to put on our list,” Klein laughs.Thorne Bay Coach Nyquest says she’s tried to prepare her five-person cross country team for encounters with wildlife.“We run on logging roads, so we’re in the wilderness quite a bit. Tell the kids to make a lot of noise. But we’ve never had an issue.”Despite the unexpected visitor, Taylee qualified for state. She was disappointed about the impact the bear had on her time – she was about a minute slower than usual – but she tried to take a positive perspective.“In practice we always say, run like there’s a bear chasing you. I was like, well perfect opportunity!”last_img read more

Without rape incest US politician in trouble over statement

first_imgWashington: Controversial United States Republican congressman Steve King set off yet another firestorm on Wednesday when he questioned whether the world’s human population would exist if rape and incest did not occur throughout history. King, a fierce conservative who is an avid supporter of President Donald Trump, was defending his opposition to abortion in all cases, including rape and incest, during an address to the Westside Conservative Club in his home state of Iowa. Also Read – Watch: Donald Trump says Florida faces absolute monster hurricane Advertise With Us “What if we went back through all the family trees and just pulled those people out that were products of rape or incest? Would there be any population of the world left if we did that?” King said in a video of his comments posted by the Des Moines Register. “Considering all the wars and all the rape and pillage that’s taken place… I know I can’t certify that I’m not part of a product of that,” he added. Also Read – Pakistan test-fires 290-km range missile Advertise With Us “I’d like to think that every one of the lives of us are as precious as any other life.” King is a polarising figure in Congress, with a history of making racist statements — last year he questioned why the language of white supremacy was offensive. The latest remarks triggered a bipartisan backlash. Randy Feenstra, a Republican Iowa state lawmaker who is challenging King in next year’s party primary, said the congressman is merely serving as the Democrats’ “best hope” of keeping control of the US House. Advertise With Us “Trump needs defenders in Congress, not distractions,” Feenstra said on Twitter. No fewer than 10 2020 Democratic presidential candidates lashed out at King for his remarks. “It’s time to unseat this bigot,” tweeted Julian Castro, an Obama-era housing secretary and the only Latino in the presidential race. “You are a disgrace. Resign,” Senator Kirsten Gillibrand said, also on Twitter. King’s track record has made him a pariah in Washington, where Republican leaders have stripped him of his congressional committee assignments.last_img read more

Fundraiser Helps Keep Sisters Academy of Baltimore for Girls TuitionFree

first_imgStudents and faculty members are getting ready for their upcoming fundraiser. (Photo by D’ana Downing)Ask Sister Debra Liesen, principal of the Sisters Academy of Baltimore, what it’s like to be in charge of a school full of teens and pre-teens and she begins to laugh.“Drama!” she said. “We call them our drama mamas.”The school is preparing for their biggest fundraiser yet. The cowboy-themed Downtown Hoedown will be held April 25 at Montgomery Park in Baltimore. The event will feature food, a live band, line dance instruction, and even a trick roper. Former U.S. Surgeon General Dr. Regina Benjamin will receive an award.The event, two years in the making, is important for the school. School administrators say that since they don’t charge students tuition, they depend on events like the Hoedown to keep the school’s doors open.Sisters Academy has been educating low-income Baltimore girls since 2004. It is the only all-girls tuition-free middle school in Baltimore. Most of their students come from southwest and west Baltimore. The school is the result of the combined efforts of four Catholic organizations – The School Sisters of Notre Dame, Sisters of Bon Secours, Sisters of Mercy and Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.Liesen said the middle school years are precarious ones, especially for young women. “It’s very exciting for them, but it’s also very scary.”She said that to tackle this problem, administrators try to be firm but fair, helping the girls navigate both academics and personal issues. “They come in as fifth graders. They are so young,” she said. “You see them evolve over time.”“The goal is to provide a top-quality private school faith-based education for families that couldn’t afford it otherwise,” said school president Sister Delia Dowling.She said in order to keep classes small, they accept about 20 girls a year. The girls start at fifth grade and leave after the eighth. Downing said staff members and administration work hard to make sure that the girls have the well-rounded education they need to be successful in high school and later on in college.So far, seven classes of girls have graduated from the Academy. Four of those classes are in high school right now and three are in college. Downing said 85 percent of the girls in the first three classes are in college. Frostburg University, The College of Notre Dame in Maryland, and St. Joseph’s University in Philadelphia are some of the places now educating Sisters Academy alumnus.To ensure the girls do well, the school has an employee who tracks each girl through high school and periodically checks up on them. “They have come so far here that we want to be sure that they are successful,” Downing said.last_img read more

Costa Rican police arrest two suspected members of Mexicos Los Caballeros Templarios

first_imgNo related posts. Costa Rican authorities on Friday arrested two suspected members of the Mexican drug cartel “Los Caballeros Templarios” (Knights Templar), who are suspected of killing a Guatemalan man and a Costa Rican model last November in an alleged murder of retribution, officials said.Following a six-month investigation, the Judicial Investigation Police (OIJ) arrested two Mexican brothers with the last names Alvarado Carrillo, who allegedly are directly linked to the cartel, along with four Costa Ricans.“Today we moved forward with the arrest of members of the group, as we had information that the Mexican men and leaders of this organization were in Costa Rica,” interim OIJ Assistant Director Gustavo Mata told TV’s Channel 7.The arrests were coordinated with eight police raids in four locations across the country, in which 80 kilograms of cocaine, several firearms and luxury vehicles were seized.“Apparently the homicide was payback for the Guatemalan man, and the young model with him was likely at the wrong place and the wrong time, for which she too was killed,” Mata said.Authorities identified the victims as Sigifredo Fernández, 52, from Guatemala, and Pamela Céspedes, 29. They were killed on Nov. 8, 2012, when the vehicle they were traveling in was fired upon while driving on the San José-Caldera Highway, west of the capital.Los Caballeros Templarios is a violent drug cartel that also participates in other extremely violent criminal operations including kidnapping, extortion and robbery, on Mexico’s Pacific coast.Mexican drug cartels have increased their presence throughout Central America, which serves as a bridge for 90 percent of the cocaine that is trafficked to the United States from South America, according to the United Nations.

Prosecutor Germanwings copilot feared going blind

first_imgInvestigators were going over Lubitz’s remains to determine whether he had taken any medications the day of the flight.Germanwings and parent company Lufthansa have said that Lubitz had passed all medical tests and was cleared by doctors as fit to fly. Robin said he had no evidence that the carrier knew of the co-pilot’s alleged visual ailment.In Germany, doctors risk prison if they disclose information about their patients to anyone unless there is evidence they intend to commit a serious crime or harm themselves. Lubitz had told his doctors not to share information among each other about his condition, Robin said.Four days after the crash, German prosecutors said there was no evidence that Lubitz had any physical ailment affecting his sight. Robin said Lubitz had complained of seeing flashing lights but that there was no apparent “organic” reason for Lubitz’s apparent vision troubles.Families of the victims were focusing on the return of the remains and belongings of their loved ones, and possible redress. German lawyer Peter Kortas, whose firm represents relatives of 34 victims, said negotiations with Germanwings on compensation began several days ago. Robin said that Lubitz sent an email to one doctor just two weeks before the crash, saying he had doubled his dose of an antidepressant he was taking in a failed attempt to end near-sleepless nights as a result of worries about his vision. Robin said it wasn’t yet clear if the vision woes were real or imagined, but Lubitz clearly felt it was threatening his beloved career.“He even said to some of those close to him that given this vision loss, life no longer had meaning,” Robin said. Lubitz’s girlfriend appeared to be aware of his vision woes, and his family to a lesser extent: Both she and his mother took him to some of his medical appointments, he added.Robin’s comments also exposed the long-term nature of Lubitz’s troubles. He feared his vision troubles would spark a return of his depression that he once suffered, the prosecutor said.In the last five years, Robin said Lubitz consulted with 41 different doctors.In a March 10 e-mail to a doctor, Lubitz had indicated he could only sleep two hours a night and wanted urgent help, Robin said. Lubitz specified he was taking Mirtazapine, an antidepressant, and had even doubled the dosage from 15 to 30 milligrams in a failed bid to improve his sleep, and his fear of going blind continued, the prosecutor added. Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Top Stories ___Associated Press writers Masha Macpherson in Paris, Geir Moulson and Kirsten Grieshaber in Berlin, and Alan Clendenning in Madrid contributed to this report.___This story corrects an earlier version to show that Lubitz had seven medical appointments in the month before the crash, not that he had seen seven doctors.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation “In this moment everything else is not as important as the fact that the bodies, (the) remains be returned to their families,” Kortas said. “It’s already more than two and a half months since the crash happened, so it’s finally necessary to get to closure.“The loss of the relatives should be compensated with also a suitable amount of money,” he added.While Kortas said Thursday’s meeting with the prosecutors was “informative and interesting,” he regretted that some questions remained. Relatives were told what the procedure was for returning remains and personal belongings, but not all got an exact date for the handover of remains, and no timeframe was given for the return of the personal belongings.Nearly half of the victims were German, 47 were Spanish and there were 17 nationalities among the rest.Stephane Gicquel, who heads a French accident victims association and was at the families’ meeting with Robin, said the relatives saw video reconstitutions of the last minute of the flight, with cockpit audio taken from the Airbus 320.“So very concretely, the families had the proof of what happened by hearing the sound recordings, hearing the alarms, hearing the bangs on the door,” he said. “I think that the families appreciated this frank and direct communication.” PARIS (AP) — Fearing he was going blind, the co-pilot who slammed a Germanwings jet into the Alps took sick days at work, upped his dosage of an antidepressant, and reached out to doctors, but they didn’t tell his employer they thought he was unfit to fly because of German privacy laws, a French prosecutor said Thursday.Marseille prosecutor Brice Robin presented new details of his criminal investigation into the case after meeting in Paris with many grieving relatives of the 150 people who died on the Germanwings flight co-piloted by Andreas Lubitz. The March 24 crash, blamed on Lubitz, has put a spotlight on possible mental health issues involving flight crews.Robin announced he was handing over his initial inquiry to three investigating magistrates who will try to determine who — if anyone — can be brought to trial in an involuntary manslaughter case in which the main culprit died in the crash.The news came as families have just started to receive the remains of their loved ones for burials in the coming days and weeks.The investigation so far “has enabled us to confirm without a shadow of a doubt … Mr. Andreas Lubitz deliberately destroyed the plane and deliberately killed 150 people, including himself,” Robin told reporters.Investigators say Lubitz locked the pilot out of the cockpit and flew the plane into a French mountainside after having researched suicide methods and cockpit door rules and practiced an unusual descent.In a new development, Robin said information from Lubitz’s tablet PC showed he had also investigated vision problems, and “feared going blind,” which would have ended the 27-year-old’s aviation career.Lubitz, who had a history of depression, had seven medical appointments in the month before the crash, including three with a psychiatrist, and had taken eight sick days off work, Robin said. Some of the doctors felt Lubitz was psychologically unstable, and some felt he was unfit to fly, but “unfortunately that information was not reported because of medical secrecy requirements,” the prosecutor said.

The Dow fell 0.2 percent on Thursday to 17,730.11 while the Standard & Poors index was little changed at 2,076.78.The win of the “no” vote Greece increases the risks of the country falling out of the 19-country euro currency union if it must issue its own currency to alleviate a cash crunch.“It’s going to be an ugly day for the markets,” predicted Kathy Lien, managing director of FX Strategy for BK Asset Management. “This means more weakness for the euro and major demand for safe haven currencies.”In Asia, the euro was trading at $1.1059, down from its Friday close of $1.1114.

In that case, more frequent releases are necessary over the season.Numerous pests are successfully controlled within fields growing a wide variety of crops around the world. Crop examples include permanent crops such as vineyards, citrus and apple orchards as well as annual crops such as strawberry, cannabis, and corn. Controlled pests include whiteflies, thrips, aphids, and mites by using either predators or parasitoids depending on the target. One common example in California is controlling the populations of two spotted spider mite (Tetranychus urticae) in strawberry crops by releasing a beneficial predator mite, Phytoseiulus persimilis. This mite is released three to four times per crop to establish a sufficient population, which, once established, can control twospotted spider mites for the rest of the crop cycle – roughly six months. Another famous augmentative biological control use case is the release of the parasitoid wasp “Anagyrus pseudococci” by the growers in the Coachella and San Joaquin Valleys in California as part of their IPM programs to control the vine mealybugs.If you are wondering about how to start using these control agents, rest assured you will not have to rear the insects yourself. Several companies specialize in the mass production of beneficials, from home breeders to multinational corporations, such as Koppert or BioBee. Your PCA or a local entomologist should be able to recommend one! THE EVOLUTION OF CONTROL AGENTS RELEASE METHODSMost of augmentative biocontrol application techniques require field workers to manually release the beneficials directly on the crop or soil. This can be a time-consuming process, and meeting required application timing can be tricky for larger fields. Luckily, if pest populations are anticipated to grow but are not yet sufficient to sustain a larger beneficial population, some beneficials can be released into fields a bit early by using containers or bags that provide some nourishment. Hopefully, this lasts until they can live off pest populations, but some level of loss should be anticipated.  As you may be beginning to realize, while biocontrol has tremendous benefit, the traditional techniques face a few challenges: field/terrain conditions or crop height may prevent a manual release, there is a big opportunity cost for not using limited labor for other tasks, there is commonly a lack of precision in the release of the beneficials, and timing can be critical. However, there is good news to report. New dispersion techniques have been developed, tested and now are becoming increasingly available. Some, like hand-held blowers, are an incremental improvement of current manual releases. Others, such as the drone-performed biocontrol provided by our company UAV-IQ Precision Agriculture to growers in California, make the release of beneficials possible at scale for a growing number of crop types. In an upcoming article, we will describe in more detail the different release methods for augmentative biocontrol. We will discover that while augmentative biological control was historically known mainly for greenhouse vegetable and floriculture production, these new technics open new opportunities for outdoor crops such as trees, orchards, vineyards, etc.In our next article, we will focus on the last strategy of applied biological control discussed in this series: conservation biocontrol, but before then we’d love to hear from you about whether you’re finding these informative and if you have any suggestions for future articles. Do you have any experience with augmentative biological control? Share your story with us and fellow growers in the comments!UAV-IQ Precision Agriculture is a company that leverages precision agriculture technologies and best practices to help growers address labor shortages and make farming operations more profitable and sustainable. By Thomas Grandperrin of UAV-IQ Precision AgricultureThis article is part of a series on biological control and Integrated Pest Management written by UAV-IQ.In the previous article in this series we discussed classical biocontrol, which is the practice of identifying the origins of pests found in local fields, then finding the natural enemies of those pests in their foreign origins and bringing the “enemy of my enemy” (otherwise known as “beneficials”) back from their homelands to local farms to renew old rivalries and help suppress pest populations. As we have seen, this strategy is usually coordinated, or at least regulated, by public organizations at a regional, national or even continental scale. But a lot of the pests damaging our crops are actually native to our regions and already have local natural enemies. The problem though is that the population of those control agents is often insufficient and on the decline, for various reasons, some of which we will discuss in an upcoming article. To highlight a few of the most common causes though, industrial farming techniques such as monocropping and the use of phytosanitary products can affect populations of beneficial insects.AUGMENTATIVE BIOLOGICAL CONTROL IN ACTIONWhen existing natural enemies populations dip, growers who implement biocontrol as part of their Integrated Pest Management plan can re-release beneficials on a regular basis instead of using pesticides. This technique of bolstering existing beneficial populations with mass-reared insects is referred to as augmentative biocontrol and presents many advantages compared to the use of chemical application. For example, unlike the use of broad-spectrum pesticides that can affect the natural enemies population and thus could encourage future pest outbreaks, augmentative biocontrol is  often an ideal long-term solution. Additionally, growers are facing pesticide resistance issues which force them to look for alternative pest control strategies. The release of biological control agents is often a more sustainable solution in the short and long-term. Another argument (among many more) in favor of augmentative biocontrol is that sprayed chemicals often cannot reach some pests such as spider mites which tend to stay sheltered on the bottom side of leaves, but natural enemies have no problem finding them there.As we described in previous articles, the goal of biocontrol is not to eradicate a pest from the farm, but rather to ensure that there is the right balance of natural enemies and pests, so that the pest population is kept under acceptable thresholds. The two primary thresholds to consider are the least number of insects that cause yield loss equal to pest management costs (economic injury level, or “EIL”) or, preferably, the pest density at which action should be taken to prevent populations from reaching the economic injury level (economic threshold, or “ET”). WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN INOCULATIVE AND INUNDATIVE AUGMENTATION? The primary principle of augmentative biocontrol is to use periodic releases to ensure that there is a large enough population of natural enemies (the ET) to prevent or control major pest outbreaks (the EIL). Augmentation can be further segmented into inoculation and inundation, depending on the frequency of release.Inoculative augmentation is when a release of beneficial is made on the crops once during the season and the control is ensured for the rest of the season by their offsprings.last_img read more

Ten days on air traffic staff still have gaping hole in ceiling

first_imgTHE air traffic control centre in Nicosia, where part of the ceiling collapsed on June 13 remains unrepaired, the Pancyprian public sector union (Pasydy) said on Saturday.‘No progress has been made since June 13,” the statement said.An air traffic controller was slightly injured in the incident, which sparked a torrent of criticism from employees and unions.“The only thing that prevented him sustaining only a concussion and not something more serious was just pure luck,” the Pasydy statement said.Pasydy said on Saturday that as of June 13, the employees have been working under scaffolding but nothing has been done to fix the actual ceiling. Now they say they’re worried the floor will collapse under them from the weight of the equipment and scaffolding if the ceiling underneath is as damaged as theirs was to the point where it fell in on its own.“We go to work every day and do not know if we will be able to return home to our families,” the union said in a written statement on behalf of the employees.According to the union, the state budget includes funds of €323,000 for the maintenance and repair of buildings and another €200,000 for building and office maintenance, and that at the same time they have a new building in Kokkinotrimithia, which is not being used and instead the taxpayer is paying rent for an old run-down building in the Athalassas area.“We also consider it wrong to choose the same contractor to repair the damage since he was the one who last October supposedly refurbished the now-collapsed roof,” the Pasydy statement added.The union said that the state needs to move forward with the repairs and not waste more time.On Wednesday, two international bodies representing air traffic controllers said the ceiling collapse was the result of years of mismanagement and underinvestment.Air Traffic Controllers European Unions Coordination (ATCEUC) and the  International Federation of Air Traffic Controllers’ Associations (IFACTA) in an announcement expressed their sympathy with the employees of the department of civil aviation (DCA) and the effects that this accident has on their working environment.“This will increase pressure on the workforce, reduce morale and will create further delay and safety concerns in the area,” the announcement said, adding that the two organisations had criticised the working conditions in Cyprus for more than 10 years. You May LikeMarie Claire | Hanacure4 Stars Who Tried The “Benjamin Button” Facial All Over Your Social FeedsMarie Claire | HanacureUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoDirectExposeMan Purchases 42 School Buses For $300 And Buries Them UndergroundDirectExposeUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoBishop says homosexuality passed on to the unborn when pregnant women enjoy anal sexUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
