first_imgAbout 7,000 newborns die every day around the world, the United Nations Children’s Fund’s (UNICEF) has said.The figure, 41 percent, represents a 5 percent increase compared to those recorded in 2000, when newborn deaths were at 41 percent.In that period however, the number of children dying before age five reduces significantly, from the 9.9 million in 2000 to 5.6 million in 2016.“The lives of 50 million children under-five have been saved since 2000, a testament to the serious commitment by governments and development partners to tackle preventable child deaths,” UNICEF’s chief of health Stefan Swartling Peterson said.He warned that without a greater effort to stop babies from dying the day they are born, or days after their birth, this progress will remain incomplete.“We have the knowledge and technologies that are required – we just need to take them where they are most needed,” he said.Tim Evans, Senior Director of Health Nutrition and Population at the World Bank Group said that it is unconscionable that in 2017, pregnancy and child birth are still life-threatening conditions for women.“The best measure of success for universal health coverage is that every mother should not only be able to access health care easily, but that it should be quality, affordable care that will ensure a healthy and productive life for her children and family,” he said.Despite progress, large disparities in child survival still exist across regions and countries – especially in Southern Asia sub-Saharan Africa.last_img read more

first_img Share Share Tweet BusinessLifestyleLocalNewsPolitics Government Awaiting Service Provider Solutions for Three-Year Internet Blackout in Areas by: – June 12, 2020 998 Views   no discussionscenter_img Share Sharing is caring!    Hon Senator Oscar George, Minister of State in the Office of the Prime Minister with responsibility for Telecommunications and BroadcastingThe Ministry of Telecommunications and Broadcasting today responded to the lack of internet in the Kalinago Territory saying that both service providers are working out proposals to undertake the task of reconnection.“Through government intervention, the local regulator, the NTRC, published bids to address the connectivity issues. I’m advised that the in-house estimates and the proposal from the services providers significantly varied,” said Hon Senator Oscar George, Minister of State in the Office of the Prime Minister with responsibility for Telecommunications and Broadcasting.“As we speak, both parties are reviewing these proposals; Government expects a solution as soon as possible and we will be very disappointed with the service providers if this is not materialized,” he stated.This comes after a law student at Lead Institute hailing from the Kalinago Territory, Whitney Melinard, expressed concern in a video about the lack of internet access in the Kalinago Territory in a video which attracted a lot of attention and some reaction.In her statement, she said the Kalinago Territory is victim to systemic racism- citing the almost three-year disconnection.“I experienced firsthand the disadvantage of the lack of WIFI access while I sat my CSEC exams in 2018,” Melinard said. “…Students in the Kalinago Territory deserve the equal opportunity to research in the comfort of their homes like most Dominicans.”The Hon Education Minister, Octavia Alfred said Wednesday that the accusations are untrue and that the territory has improved in the past ten years.“If we have to count the number of students who went away to study, we will see that it has never been so before,” Hon Alfred responded. “If we have to look at the performance of students from this area, we will know that unlike last year, in the CXC, in the top, there were students from this area.”Since Hurricane Maria wreaked havoc on the island in 2017, swatches of the island have been without internet connectivity.With the global pandemic forcing life to rely on virtual engagements, a section of the population is still in the dark.Hon Senator George, commented that Melinard’s statement was “unwarranted” and “far from the truth.”“Prior to September 2017, Dominica could boast of broadband coverage of 95%,” he said. “While the two major telecommunications providers have done relatively well in restoring coverage our dear Kalinago Territory is still one out of 36 communities awaiting reconnection,” he said.“While I totally understand the frustration expressed by the student from the Kalinago region and while I admire her bravery in voicing her concerns, the issue of racism preference or marginalization are not warranted and to be honest this is far from the truth,” the Hon Senator said.“Let me take this opportunity to express clearly that Government is not mandated to develop telecommunication infrastructure and services, notwithstanding it is our job to serve our citizens and intervene where we see challenges,” he added.He did however say that the authorities have been aware of the issue and working behind the scenes urgently and has provided interim options.WIFI access is available at 224 public buildings including 70 schools as well as at health centres, resource centres, police stations and village council offices, Senator George listed.The Hon Senator said the main challenge is the cost of connectivity in the area but an unnamed service provider is working to restore connectivity in the north with an aim to restore connectivity nationwide.last_img read more

first_imgThe 5G networking hype has been in full force since Qualcomm declared “5G is here, and it’s time to celebrate” in February of last year. The reality, however, has required patience from consumers due to the time needed to roll out the new networks and the dearth of applications to put additional speed to compelling use.A year after South Korea launched the world’s first full commercial 5G network and months after China opened the world’s biggest commercial 5G network, Bloomberg News reporters tested the leading carriers in both countries to see how far 5G has really gotten. Tests in Hong Kong and Tokyo also showed similar results — gaps in coverage that could leave most early adopters waiting for networks to reach full speed.Carriers aren’t moving quite as fast. They’re investing billions of dollars to set up and expand their 5G networks, but the technical design of this new standard demands high network density to provide the advertised stratospheric speeds. Once they have enough masts in place, they aim to recoup the initial costs by offering more bandwidth-hungry add-ons, such as Nvidia’s GeForce Now game-streaming service, which SoftBank Corp. launched in Japan on June 10.Where it’s available, even without hitting its max theoretical speeds, 5G is an impressive upgrade for most consumer applications. For example, at a gigabit per second (1Gbps), a user could download a 9-hour audiobook in less than 1 second, according to Fastmetrics, a U.S.-based internet service provider. Even at 1/10 of that speed, 100 megabits per second, a 45-minute TV show takes only 16 seconds, Fastmetrics estimates.Carriers in North America, Europe and Australia have also set up 5G, with so far underwhelming results for consumers. In March tests conducted by RootMetrics in the U.S., the choice appeared to be between fast speed with negligible availability — Verizon Wireless Inc. recorded a max speed of 846 Mbps with 3.1% availability in Chicago — or wider availability without much of a speed bump — T-Mobile US Inc. covered 57% of Washington but at a less impressive 148 Mbps.While 5G uptake has been incremental, companies that make parts for the phones are betting on a wave of upgrades to drive smartphone demand and help spur economies from Taiwan to South Korea. To test download speeds and coverage, Bloomberg sent four reporters out into Seoul, Beijing, Tokyo and Hong Kong with 5G phones and speed-measuring apps. Here’s what those tests showed:SEOUL (SOUTH KOREA)KT Corp, the No. 2 South Korean carrier, has improved 5G service since the commercial debut in April 2019, though it still lacks the high-frequency airwaves necessary to reach top download speeds in the range of 20 Gbps. SK Telecom Co., the country’s largest carrier, achieves a download speed of 1.5 Gbps inside its headquarters, which drops to 1 Gbps in the same building’s lobby.KT’s average 5G data speed ranges between 800 Mbps to 1 Gbps. The company responded that it is hard to simply compare data speeds in South Korea, which has nationwide services, with other countries that only have test services or have services in a few cities.BEIJING (CHINA)In Beijing, tests using a Huawei P40 Pro phone showed 5G service was consistent enough to play high-definition (1080p) video while riding in a car. There was no 5G signal inside the subway and the shopping mall in Guomao, an area at the centre of the Beijing Central Business district. Most of the Zhongnanhai district, home of the central government, has no 5G coverage, according to a map provided by China Mobile. A China Mobile representative in Beijing emailed a video showing download speed exceeding 1.1 Gbps at Beijing Daxing International Airport. The representative had no further comment.HONG KONGTests using a Huawei P40 Pro showed streaming of high-resolution 4K video was smooth outdoors even in a moving vehicle. The fastest download speed was recorded in the carrier’s flagship store in the city’s central business district. According to Alex Cheng, China Mobile principal engineer, the carrier expects its 5G network to “penetrate deeply” in Hong Kong.TOKYO (JAPAN)At two locations in the city, the 5G signal was strong inside the Docomo shop but became unstable a short distance away from it, using a Samsung Galaxy S20 phone and Netflix’s speed test app. Both of Tokyo’s main airports, two Olympics facilities and Tokyo Sky Tree are among the covered spots. Two more waves of 5G network expansion are planned by the end of July and end of October, the carrier said. Smartphone makers have swept in with a flood of 5G devices this year with Samsung, OnePlus and others pushing the new technology without asking for much higher prices or design compromises. Millions of 5G phones have already been sold, and for the billions of people not yet on the bandwagon, the new wireless standard will soon be the default option anyway. But it might take few more months for 5G to be available widespread with high speeds and minimal latency.Click here to see the original story from Bloomberg.last_img read more

first_imgNene corralled a pass from Harden, absorbed a foul, and sank two free throws with 0.7 seconds left as the Houston Rockets eked out a 118-116 win over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday night.Off an inbounds play originating with 3.8 seconds left, Nene set a screen for Harden and rolled to the rim. Harden followed by passing out of the double team, hitting Nene in stride and forcing Thunder forward Jerami Grant to commit the foul. Nene finished with a season-high 18 points over 17 minutes.“They (the Thunder) did a good job (setting up defensively) on the first play so we called a timeout,” Harden said. “I just got open and I saw two defenders guarding me, made the simple play to Nene and he knocked down two free throws.”Harden posted 26 points, eight rebounds and 12 assists. All five Rockets starters scored in double figures, including guard Patrick Beverley (11 points, eight rebounds). Eric Gordon scored 22 off the bench.The Rockets (28-9) regained possession after Westbrook missed a pull-up jumper with 5.7 seconds left, his third consecutive errant shot following a 3-pointer that cut the Houston lead to 114-113 with 2:38 left.Westbrook scored 49 points, sinking a career-best eight 3-pointers. He added eight rebounds and five assists for the Thunder (21-16), which has lost four of five games and three in succession. Houston took a 2-1 season-series lead against the Thunder, with all three contests decided by one possession.

first_imgThe Browns have been rife with seasons of disappointment since the franchise was reborn in 1999. But, at 2-10 with four games left in the season following a demoralizing 37-3 loss at home to the Bengals, this year might be the worst.The last time the Browns won just two games in a season was that first expansion year of 1999, but that team wasn’t expected to do much. They went 2-14 with a pair of last-play miracle wins against the New Orleans Saints (a Tim Couch “Hail Mary” TD pass to Kevin Johnson) and the hated Pittsburgh Steelers (a 39-yard field goal by Phil Dawson into the wind at Three Rivers Stadium with no time on the clock) on the road.That team benched all of its veterans for rookies and second-year players and took its share of lumps.For me, I’d have to back to 1990 to find a season as demoralizing as this one. The Browns had just come off their third AFC Championship Game loss in the last four years and fifth-straight playoff berth.They had Bernie Kosar entering his sixth season as a starting QB. They had Bud Carson, who had come one game from a Super Bowl in his first season as a head coach and had an attack defense that had most offenses on their heels all season. They had a lot of talent returning from those playoff teams.Instead, that team slumped to 3-13. It was like the bottom fell out of the fanbase. Carson was fired after just seven games when he mishandled a potential quarterback controversy between Kosar and long-time backup Mike Pagel. The team ran off several popular veterans, including Hanford Dixon, Matt Bahr, Bob Golic and Mike Baab, among others, and struggled to find their replacements.That 1990 season has kind of served as the line of demarcation for Browns fans. The glory days of the 1980s, in which the Browns went to the playoffs seven times, winning five division titles and had one other 9-7 season (1983) that resulted in a postseason near-miss, was over.The Kardiac Kids ushered in the 80s and Bernie’s Boys got the franchise on the doorstep of the one thing that Its never reached – the Super Bowl.From 1990 on, the Browns have only had two playoff berths, no division titles, one playoff win, three winning seasons and four others with at least seven wins.Bill Belichick is lauded as this generation’s Vince Lombardi, and even he couldn’t consistently win with the Browns, going 6-10, 7-9, 7-9, 11-5 and 5-11 in his five seasons before Art Modell fired him over the phone shortly after the franchise was cleared to move to Baltimore.This season seems to be reminiscent of that 1990 season because there was a certain degree of optimism brewing. The Browns went 7-9 – only their second 7-9 season and fourth season of at least seven wins since 1999 – last season and led the AFC North division after nine games.

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott is having a magical season for ‘America’s Team,’ leading Dallas to an overtime win over the Eagles on Sunday night on National TV, and having the Cowboys at 6-1 at on top in the NFC East.There was some discussion about the team going back to Tony Romo at quarterback, but following the win over the rival Eagles on Sunday, owner Jerry Jones said that Prescott will be the Cowboys QB Sunday when Dallas visits the lakefront to take on the 0-8 Browns.“Tony’s making a lot of progress,” Jones said. “We’re excited about that, but at this particular time I don’t have any more [to] clarify. My opinion is Dak will start against Cleveland.”Prescott has been sensational for the Cowboys, a QB rating of 99.6 and he’s thrown nine touchdown, just two interceptions, and has thrown for 1773 yards, rushing for 105 yards and four scores. Sunday night Prescott struggled, completing 19 of 39 passes for 287 yards, but got his team from 10 down to overtime and was very good, hitting all five of his passes for 56 yards and the game-winning score to tight end Jason Witten. As far as Romo goes, the Cowboys former starting quarterback has had one limited practice since suffering a compression fracture in his back late in the preseason against the Seattle Seahawks.center_img Related TopicsBrownsCowboysDak PrescottNFLTony Romolast_img read more
