first_imgShare on: WhatsApp Unity is strength. London, United Kingdom | AFP | Liverpool players showed their solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement following the death of George Floyd in the United States by taking a knee around the centre circle at Anfield on Monday.Reds stars including Virgil van Dijk and Trent Alexander-Arnold tweeted the same photograph of the squad along with the words “Unity is strength” accompanied by the hashtag #BlackLivesMatter.Earlier, Manchester United striker Marcus Rashford said he feared society was “more divided than ever” in the violent aftermath of Floyd’s death in Minneapolis.Floyd died last Monday after a white police officer held his knee on the handcuffed black man’s neck for several minutes.The shocking incident has sparked protests and riots in cities across the world and sparked strong reaction from the sporting world.“At a time I’ve been asking people to come together, work together and be united, we appear to me more divided than ever,” said Rashford. “People are hurting and people need answers.center_img “Black lives matter. Black culture matters. Black communities matter.

This horse has been kind of quirky, but Peter has done an impressive job with him. He has been progressively getting better. This is a 21 and 44 horse, but he is calming down now. Peter is training him to go longer, so we’ll see what’s next.”TRAINER QUOTESPETER MILLER, CALIFORNIA DIAMOND, WINNER: “He got a great trip and a great ride from Kent (Desormeaux). There’s a reason he’s in the Hall of Fame, but they don’t make it easy for you here, even at 2-5. I think the horse will go longer, but we’ll enjoy this and see what happens down the road.”On the importance of winning the training title (he’s now two up on O’Neill): “It is. We work hard. There’s no extra money (for winning it), it’s just a trophy and bragging rights, but you know what? A trophy and bragging rights are nice. I’m a competitive guy. I’d like to win the title at Tidily Winks. Doug’s hot right now, he’s on my tail. I needed this win and I’m probably going to need another win or two.”GARY HARTUNIAN, ROCKINGHAM RANCH, WINNING OWNER: “He’s had seven races and five wins. I’m gonna go pick up my check right now.

The group met in January 2010 in Baltimore to discuss how to improve measurement of caesarean birth and developed a meeting report with recommendations for moving research forward.In addition to the caesarean CoP, MHTF has participated in the Clean Birth Kits Community of Practice to investigate the role of clean birth kits in improving maternal health.These communities of practice serve as a platform for experts in the field of maternal health and its related fields to share knowledge and information to reach consensus on major topics in maternal health that are major areas of debate. As we move forward, the development of additional CoPs around other pressing maternal health issues is likely.Share this:last_img read more

Budget office cuts cost estimate of childrens insurance

first_imgWASHINGTON – Congress’ official budget analysts have eased one stumbling block to lawmakers’ fight over renewing a program that provides health insurance for nearly 9 million low-income children.The Congressional Budget Office says a Senate bill adding five years of financing to the program would cost $800 million. Previously, the analysts estimated it would cost $8.2 billion.That means lawmakers should find it much easier to agree to a way to pay for extending the program.The lower cost projection doesn’t resolve the main barrier the bill faces. Extending the children’s health program has become enmeshed in a battle among President Donald Trump and lawmakers over how to protect hundreds of thousands of younger immigrants from deportation, and how much added money should be spent on defence and domestic programs.Once those more heated disputes are resolved, the conflict over children’s health should end quickly.Financing for the program expired last fall. Congress has temporarily extended its funding, but growing numbers of states have moved closer to exhausting their money. Members of both parties are eager to extend the health insurance program and avoid being blamed for causing millions of children to be uninsured.Counterintuitively, the bill’s budget impact has shrunk because the Republican tax bill enacted last month eliminated the penalty President Barack Obama’s health care law imposes on people who don’t buy insurance. That move is expected to drive up the government’s costs of subsidizing people buying policies on insurance marketplaces.That’s because ending those penalties is projected to result in fewer healthy people buying coverage on marketplaces, driving premiums higher for remaining consumers. Since government subsidies for people buying policies are linked to premiums, higher premiums mean higher federal costs.The budget analysts say extending the children’s insurance program will encourage some parents to use that program and not the marketplaces. That would save the government money.The new estimate was included in a letter the budget office sent Friday to Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah.last_img read more

Quebec premier outlines plan to push back against protectionist US policies

first_imgQUEBEC CITY, Que. – Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard will be heading to the United States next week to push back against U.S. President Donald Trump’s protectionist trade policies.Couillard told reporters Wednesday he’ll be in Washington D.C., on Tuesday to meet with elected officials and Trump administration representatives to denounce U.S. tariffs imposed on Canadian lumber, newsprint, steel and aluminum.He will also be in New York City on Thursday as the province aims to cultivate contacts with U.S. policy-makers, legislators and business people who are likely to support it as trade tensions escalate between the two countries.“I don’t actually know how the behaviour can be changed or predicted,” Couillard said of Trump’s policies. “What I know is that we have a lot of allies in the States, people who think like us … these are the people who we will keep in contact with.”Couillard described the spats as “skirmishes” that could eventually lead to a trade war and said he will send a message to his U.S. counterparts that there is nothing to be gained from it.The provincial government outlined an evolving series of measures to counter the protectionist policies, summed up by the words denounce and mitigate.Quebec, whose economy is closely tied to that of the United States with three-quarters of exports heading to that country, said it will also diversify its export markets going forward.He gave as an example the European Union market as well as intensifying trade with other Canadian provinces.Quebec won’t go on the offensive alone — Couillard said he spoke with Ontario premier-designate Doug Ford on Wednesday, who responded positively to his request for the two provinces to work together to stand up to the Trump administration.“On the importance of our combined economies and the need to work together, we are in total agreement,” Couillard said.last_img read more
