Insecurity hindering efforts to aid displaced Somalis says UN relief official

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) says there are now more than 200,000 internally displaced persons (IDPs) who have fled the fighting in the capital, Mogadishu, and set up shelters along the 15-kilometre route from the city to Afgooye. About 25,000 people per month have been displaced from Mogadishu in January and February, bringing the total number of those needing assistance in the country to between 1.8 million and 2 million, according to OCHA. “Somalia is the most difficult place in the world for humanitarians to do their job, due to the ever-shifting insecurity,” noted William Paton, the acting UN Humanitarian and Resident Coordinator there.Rising insecurity has forced the cancellation of several missions to Afgooye in February. In addition, there are nearly 400 checkpoints around the country where humanitarian convoys are often subject to threats and violence. There have been nine shooting incidents at checkpoints in the first two months of this year alone.“We are going to continue to work hard to improve security for our staff members and thus deliver more,” stated Mr. Paton, who recently visited some of the more than 100 settlements that have sprung up along the road to Afgooye. Amid the difficulties, UN agencies and their partners are continuing to provide food, water and other vital supplies to the affected populations throughout the country, which has not had a functioning government since 1991. In addition, some 56,000 children and 11,200 pregnant mothers have been immunised and mobile clinics are providing maternal and child health services.Meanwhile, OCHA reports that some 850,000 Somalis in the country’s central regions – including some 170,000 IDPs – are suffering the consequences of a prolonged drought that is threatening livestock and the livelihoods of pastoralists. High rates of acute malnutrition and possible disease outbreaks due to water scarcity are among the major concerns right now. UN agencies are trucking in water and have already handed out 4,300 tons of food to around 230,000 people. 5 March 2008Deteriorating security in Somalia in recent months has made it more difficult for aid workers to assist hundreds of thousands of people uprooted by fighting in the strife-torn nation, a senior United Nations relief official said today. read more

Brown calls Ontario Progressive Conservatives disproportionately young diverse

Brown calls Ontario Progressive Conservatives disproportionately young, diverse Ontario Progressive Conservative Leader Patrick Brown smiles after delivering a speech at the Ontario Progressive Conservative convention in Ottawa, Saturday , March 5, 2016. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Fred Chartrand OTTAWA – Ontario’s Progressive Conservatives emerged from a weekend convention confident they will be able to defeat the Liberals in the 2018 election, with a younger and more inclusive party hungry for new ideas.It was the first convention for new leader Patrick Brown, who announced his first major policy position, saying he supported a price on carbon to fight climate change and calling the Liberals’ cap-and-trade plan a $1.9 billion government cash grab.Brown, 37, a former federal Conservative MP who won the PC leadership in May 2015, offered few details on how he’d put a price on carbon _ British Columbia’s carbon tax “is one example” _ and said it must be “revenue neutral” with tax cuts for people and businesses.“Having polluters pay and having that returned as a dividend to taxpayers in broad-based tax relief is a sensible approach to dealing with the environmental challenges of today,” Brown told The Canadian Press in an interview Sunday.Some of the nearly 1,800 Tory delegates muttered complaints at the carbon pricing announcement _ and one lone cry of “No” _ but Brown said there was “practically universal”support” in the PC caucus on the issue.Environment and Climate Change Minister Glen Murray took to Twitter Sunday to attack Brown as a climate change “denier” who never raised the issue once in 10-years in the House of Commons.Brown said he had hoped the Liberals would welcome the Tories’ agreement that something must be done about climate change instead of taking “cheap partisan shots.”The fact there were so many new PCs at the convention, especially from ethnic communities, and a strong showing of youth delegates, shows they’re well positioned to take advantage of the “huge thirst for change” in Ontario, said Brown.“I think the party today reflects the province in a way we haven’t before,” he said. “It is disproportionately young for a political party. It is disproportionately diverse.”Brown, who calls himself a pragmatic Progressive Conservative, told the party it must change if it doesn’t want to lose a fifth consecutive election, and said the next campaign platform would come from widespread consultations of members and non-members, not top down from party brass.“If we have a policy platform that is reflective of the membership, the membership must be a reflection of the province,” said Brown.Former Toronto Argonauts player and coach Mike ‘Pinball’ Clemons, who amused delegates with a 40-minute motivational speech Saturday, is expected to be a PC candidate in 2018, and will join the leader on a province-wide tour to “listen relentlessly” to voters.“He would be a great public servant,” said Brown. There are other high profile Ontarians, some not previously engaged in politics, who want to run for the Tories in 2018, said Brown.“There’s lots of Pinballs out there,” he said. “That is a very encouraging sign for our party.”The Progressive Conservatives will begin nominating candidates in January, 2017, 18 months ahead of voting day. As part of their rebranding exercise, they also unveiled a new logo, with a red P intertwined with a blue C, and a green leaf in the middle.Several Tory MPPs who supported Christine Elliott in the leadership race, including Todd Smith and Michael Harris, said they were impressed with Brown’s performance during the convention, especially his Saturday night speech.Brown called claims of infighting in the PC caucus between two eastern Ontario MPPs “exaggerated,” and said Jack MacLaren was not helping another would-be candidate challenge caucus mate Lisa MacLeod for her re-nomination in 2018.“There really is nothing there,” he insisted. “Jack said very clearly that he is publicly supporting his caucus colleagues.”Follow @CPnewsboy on Twitter by Keith Leslie, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 6, 2016 9:27 am MDT Last Updated Mar 6, 2016 at 3:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Doctors Hitting the Road to Inspire More Minority Med Profession Students

first_img(Updated 9/9/2014) A group of doctors has embarked on a road trip to reach out to the next generation of aspiring medical students in underserved communities.As a co-founder of the Tour for Diversity in Medicine, Dr. Alden Landry and his colleagues have put their outreach and mentoring efforts into overdrive.“If we’re going to address health disparities, we have to think outside the box,” Landry said.A mentoring campaign on wheels, the tour’s bus has reached more than 2,000 students since it began rolling in 2012.“Many students don’t know where to get guidance,” said Landry. “Our solution is to go to them.”He is convinced that the Tour can get more minorities into the health professions, resulting in greater access to care for underserved communities.“Down the road,” he said. “this can significantly help to eliminate health disparities.”The tour is the brainchild of Landry and Kameron Leigh Matthews, who as members of the Student National Medical Association board worked to increase the number of culturally diverse physicians.When they realized that the association wasn’t reaching many historically Black colleges and universities or community colleges, which enroll large numbers of racial and ethnic minorities, they considered going directly to the students. One of them blurted out, “We should just get on a bus!”It was a radical notion. While a few medical career fairs tried to break down the barriers confronting underserved students, none of them got on a bus to do it.After the duo finished their residencies in 2011, Landry called Matthews. “Kam, it’s now or never,” he said.The Aetna Foundation and the U.S. Army pledged financial backing. Colleagues and medical students with diverse backgrounds, who knew firsthand the value of mentors, signed on.“We always have people coming up saying, ‘How can I get on the bus?’” Landry says.Landry’s first mentor was his own grandmother, a registered nurse who pushed him to become a physician. Later, through the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation-funded Minority Medical Education Program, he met a Black ER doctor who mentored him through medical school and residency. His said his own efforts now are a way to repay their dedication.Whether educating youth about health care through his  Hip Hop Health nonprofit or wheeling down the road with his tour, Landry is invested in his mentees. To hear them tell it, the investment is worth it.“To see people that look like you and have achieved your dreams is priceless,” one tour attendee said.“After today,” another added, “I believe I can do anything.”last_img read more


League of Legends Designing with cosplayers in mind

first_imgLeague of Legends is known for a several things, popularizing the MOBA genre, its free-to-play business model, and its horde of outlandish playable characters. It’s also known for an army of hardcore fans that include a legion of enthusiastic cosplayers. Any video game convention will be awash with foxgirls, guys in 8 foot tall armor, and fallen angels wearing oven mitts. These costumes can be utterly baffling to people who don’t play League, but they are instantly recognizable to fans. League’s developer, Riot Games, partnered with Tribeca Games at an event in New York City last month, where fans could meet the designers and mingle with each other. We spoke with some of the developers, and a select group of League cosplayers to see how League cultivates this form of fandom.The day-long event was called “Tribeca Games Presents the Craft and Creative of League of Legends.” The team from Riot Games was there to present panels on topics that ranged from character design to community management. We discussed designing for cosplay with Evan Monteiro, a Splash artist at Riot Games.Monteiro described how the same features that make a character recognizable in-game will also make them well-suited to cosplay. According to him, cosplaying fans are “…definitely a factor that we consider very heavily, but I would say that it is actually a secondary factor to the primary priority we have when creating champions, and that is to have an iconic silhouette. And have something about that character that immediately, when you look at them, you can tell that is a League of Legends character… That priority naturally makes it easier for cosplayers to be recognizable when they are cosplaying as these characters.”He cited the character Bard as an example. Bard is a champion whose face is concealed behind a mask, and he wears bulky clothing, but he still has distinctive features that Monteiro pointed out, “The horn pulls back from his head, the wind chimes that fall back down there. The flute that he uses when he is using abilities… We think that having those there benefit the game itself, for the in-game read, as well as for cosplayers in general.”Montiero’s work as a Splash artist is often seen by players before an upcoming character is available to play in the game. This gives hardcore cosplayers a chance to start sewing before they even see the character in game, “As a splash artist we definitely try to make it clear what the materials are on all of the skins and champions. We try to get the brass around Bard’s mask, and the wood bits. We put detail into the leather that he’s wearing.”Aside from attending panels with the designers, people who came to this event could socialize in a lounge where several of League’s more dedicated cosplayers were showing off their costumes. There are 128 playable characters in League, and all of them have multiple “skins” that change their appearance. This means that fans have hundreds of outfits to choose from when cosplaying.Among the cosplayers was Michelle, who goes by the cosplay handle 9Lives Armory. She has been playing League of Legends since it was in beta six years ago. She was dressed as the angelic champion, Kayle, in a suit of plate armor with wings and a five foot long sword. “I’ve always had a secret love for Kayle,” she said, and immediately talked about the in-game skins that she owns for the character, including the rare silver skin “I always debated redoing her silver. She’s always been my baby.”Many of the fans at this event said that they felt a special connection to the developer, and Michelle said that Riot Games stands out among other developers because “…They try to bring themselves into the community themselves, they get right in there. I think that separates them from other game companies. [Other companies] try to build for the fans, they’re not in the community themselves.”Another featured cosplayer was Sofia, also known by the handle Orboras Cosplay. She was dressed as the Night Hunter Vayne. Although she had been cosplaying since 2007, she said that she took a huge break until League got her back into cosplaying in 2013. When asked why League brought her back into cosplay, she said “It was a combination of things, enjoying the game to begin with, and then finding characters that I could identify with, and characters that I would like their outfits as well. League has such an abundance of dynamic and different types of female characters – even their male characters, I genderbend cosplay as well. There’s so much to explore there, that I couldn’t not do it.”Cosplay can bring fans together by advertising their shared love of a particular character. Orobas told us about an experience she had with another fan that day “…it’s fun to be able to put on that costume and become that character, and people who love that character will come up to you. I had a fan come up to me and give me a bottle, and it said ‘Black Magic’ on it because one of Vayne’s lines in the game is ‘I smell black magic.’ And he was like ‘So that you can smell the black magic.’ Had I not cosplayed this champion I never would have met that person and had that interaction.”League of Legends has been out for over six years, and the developers are constantly releasing new playable characters, and skins for the existing one. This leads to a cycle where the developers make increasingly flamboyant characters, even as the cosplay community hones their skills. “They keep coming out with Ultimate Skins” exclaims Orobas, “The more complex the characters get, the more of a challenge it becomes for a cosplayer to bring that to life. It’s a good challenge.”But all the hard work from fans is noticed and appreciated by the developers. “I hope that our players, and people who participate in cosplay, I hope they know how much we value that,” says Montiero. “We love, love, love, after we’ve put so much effort into creating and crafting these characters, to see that resonate through our fans. Seeing them attempt to pull that costuming into the real world for us is really rewarding.”Riot is now wholly owned by Tencent, check out the news above.last_img read more

British Airways tops Heathrow Fly Quiet and Green League Table

first_imgBritish Airways tops Heathrow Fly Quiet and Green League TableBritish Airways tops Heathrow Fly Quiet and Green League TableBritish Airways’ short-haul fleet has topped Heathrow’s ‘Fly Quiet and Green’ league table, based on its environmental performance from January to March this year.The airline gained the top spot because of its new, more fuel-efficient aircraft, consistent adherence to routes designed to reduce noise for local communities and new landing procedures, optimised to reduce both noise and emissions.Around 50 per cent of aircraft flying to and from Heathrow are operated by British Airways and any improvement to the airline’s 300-strong fleet makes a significant impact.British Airways’ long-haul fleet also featured among the top 10 airlines in the league table, moving 10 places up to sixth.  The league table also takes into account emissions per seat, the amount of noise generated by a plane, aircraft age and emissions standards – with newer planes such as Boeing 787s and Airbus 350s among the most green and quiet. In response to the encouraging news, British Airways’ Environment Manager Andy Kershaw said: “We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously and are pleased to be named the cleanest and greenest in class for our short-haul fleet.  We have introduced more than 40 new generation fuel-efficient aircraft and will receive a further 70 of these aircraft over the next six years, including A320neo, A350, 787 and 777-9s.“We are building Europe’s first plant to convert household organic waste to sustainable aviation fuel, in Britain, and we are advocates of new global emissions regulation (CORSIA) which will cap airline industry net CO2 emissions from 2020.”British Airways is determined to play its part to find new solutions for sustainable travel. Last month it named a team from University College London the winners of its BA – 2119 Future of Fuels project, which challenged academics in the fields of aerospace, fuels and biotechnology to create a way to fly a long-haul flight for five hours with zero CO2 emissions.  IAG, British Airways’ parent company, will invest a total of $400m on alternative sustainable fuel development in the next 20 years.Source = British Airwayslast_img read more

Barnwell proposed that Bucannon who has 61 mill

first_imgBarnwell proposed that Bucannon, who has $6.1 million remaining on his $8.7 million contract this season, would be sent with a 2019 fourth-round pick to the New York Jets in exchange for a seventh-round pick.Related LinksCBS Sports’ La Canfora expects Cardinals to trade Deone BucannonIt’s similar to the Cleveland Browns’ 2017 trade of quarterback Brock Osweiler to the Houston Texans, which Barnwell wrote at the time was “nakedly about getting rid of a contractual albatross.”In that deal, the Browns added a second-round and sixth-round pick to the trade to sweeten the deal for the Texans. In exchange, Cleveland received a fourth-round pick.The trade idea for the Cardinals is based on the same strategy: It’s about Arizona unloading a salary, not the return.Bucannon had been productive under former head coach Bruce Arians and past defensive coordinators, including Jets head coach Todd Bowles, but his struggles to adjust to the play style of new head coach Steve Wilks has made his playing time inconsistent at best.He only played for one defensive snap in Week 3, appeared in 73 percent of them in Week 4, then only four last week despite the Cardinals defense being on the field for 92 snaps total, the second-most in team history. Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling It would make sense for the Arizona Cardinals trade linebacker Deone Bucannon, ESPN’s Bill Barnwell wrote Thursday.His article, which presented 11 trade ideas for the Oct. 30 deadline, comes on the heels of a report from CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora that said Arizona is trying to trade the fifth-year linebacker.The contract and recent struggles of Bucannon just make it difficult to find a good landing spot.

Steady progress on Ayia Napa marina says developer

first_imgMore than 55 per cent of the residential properties in the Eastern Tower of the Ayia Napa marina project, have already been sold, developers of the project said on Wednesday in a progress report on the €220 million project.The project, in which the Egyptian investor Naguib Sawiris’ Gemini Real Estate Ltd has an 80 per cent stake and the Cyprus-based Caramondanis Group a 20 per cent stake, is scheduled to be to be completely finished by 2021. The marina itself will be operating by the summer of 2019, the developers said in an announcement after the onsite presentation.The second phase includes the construction of 190 luxury one-to-four-bedroom apartments in two twisting-shaped towers of 25 and 26 floors. There will also be 29 luxury villas, shops, restaurants and other amenities. The Eastern Tower is expected to be finished in 2020 and the West Tower in 2021.More than 55 per cent of the properties in the Eastern Tower have been sold.“Work is progressing steadily,” the announcement said and was following the construction timetable. The first stage, which began in September 2016 was concerned with the construction of the port and infrastructure projects, the main arm of which has been completed.A new sales office is also ready to open, the developers said, where visitors and interested investors can access plans, photos and videos. They will also be able to tour the site with virtual reality “in order to understand in the best possible way the experience that Ayia Napa marina will offer to future occupants and visitors”.The project, according to the developers, has already gained international acclaim and was attracting growing interest from investors and buyers.“The Ayia Napa marina is the most significant development taking place in the Famagusta area, and one of the most ambitious development projects in Cyprus,” the announcement said.“With its completion, it is expected to upgrade both the region and the national tourism product, serving as a lever to attract and develop the local economy and promoting the image of Ayia Napa as a destination of quality tourism.”There are currently three marinas in Cyprus – Limassol, St Raphael, Larnaca – but there are plans for the construction of two more, in Paphos and Paralimni, while the one in Larnaca, which is adjacent to the port, is due to be completely re-built. You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

he was "slacking off" It was time to tell his employerDuring his next trip to his company’s Oxford headquarters Evan scheduled a meeting with the woman in charge of human resources That morning he found himself in an office with an open plan; even the conference rooms had glass on three sides He had just vomited in the bathroom He tried to fight his nausea as he saw the HR lead approach She was a short woman with a high voice and a warm demeanor who Evan thought was more or less his age He straightened his tie and followed her into an exposed conference roomEvan took a moment to center himself to quell his anxiety There would never be an easy time for this conversation He had to get it out "It wasn’t that I expected her to have a negative reaction" my brother said "I just had no idea at all"RelatedFamilyVictorian Law Prevented a Widower From Marrying His Deceased Wife’s Sister Here’s How That ChangedFamilyVictorian Law Prevented a Widower From Marrying His Deceased Wife’s Sister Here’s How That ChangedHe told the woman he wanted to share some personal information "I am transgender which you might know because of my health care paperwork" he said Paperwork according to my brother is how many transgender people are inadvertently outed in the workplace An employer will send a letter to Social Security or to the Internal Revenue Service to verify a new hire’s personal information; the agency will respond that the wrong gender has been listed (Evan’s friends call this a "no-match letter") Evan had lived with the possibility that at any moment this could surface since he’d started the job six months earlier Maybe this woman had known he was trans all along he thoughtIt turned out she hadn’t She nodded as he spoke and didn’t seem fazed She asked why my brother was bringing it up "Well I’m pregnant" he told her A moment passed Then bit by bit her face broke into a smile "Well this is unexpected but that’s great" she said and the tension flooded from my brother’s shoulders She told him about her two little girls and how wonderful parenthood was My brother sat there with her talking about spit-up and dance recitals and he remembers feeling like part of a club he’d always looked into from the outside The normal things that happen to normal parents would be his things he thoughtFor the most part this is how it went when my brother told people he was expecting "With most folks I phrased it ‘Well you know my partner and I are having a baby and it works best for our family that I carry the baby’" he told me It usually took them a few minutes Then as best they knew how they said supportive kind things Our mother started knitting a sweater for the baby His dermatologist said "That makes all the sense in the world" When he finally screwed up the courage to tell his supervisor a few weeks after his Oxford trip she asked how she could be supportiveEvan took a moment to center himself to quell his anxiety There would never be an easy time for this conversation He had to get it outThis positive attitude is less surprising when you consider that my brother didn’t tell many people he didn’t know well He didn’t need to Even at full term he never looked pregnant He looked like a guy with a beer belly He wore collared shirts to work often with sweater-vests and when he couldn’t button the shirts any longer he bought bigger ones When his pants stopped buttoning he wore them lower and got suspenders "People talk about the attention you get when you’re pregnant and for the most part that was absent for me" he said No one rubbed his belly asked when he was due or commented that he was carrying the baby low so it must be a boy "Mostly I liked that because I don’t like body attention normally" he added "but there’s also a loss"One April afternoon when Evan was< in his eighth month he stopped by Goodwill to sift through baby clothes He took a few outfits to the counter Evan opened his wallet and the woman behind the register noticed the small ultrasound snapshot he kept tucked inside She looked at his belly and smiled at him His blood ran hot "That felt incredible" he said "She read me She got me"Evan’s midwife was Clare Storck Really that’s her name She’d been catching babies for five years at a practice attached to Mount Auburn Hospital in Cambridge but she’d been working with expectant mothers for most of her adult life as a doula My brother was her first male birth parentWhen Evan arrived at the midwifery center for his first appointment he filled out an intake form but the receptionist had trouble entering his information: if she checked the "male" box she couldn’t open an obstetric record for him This was a problem throughout the pregnancy–medical forms and insurance claims are not set up to allow people like Evan to be honest about their medical needsAt first he fought this at every turn When his health insurance refused to cover his pregnancy test because he was male he spent several hours explaining his situation to a representative waiting on hold and explaining it again "My sex is female and my gender is male" he told the rep She was able to override the system and get the cost reimbursed but he had to call back and do the same thing every time he had an appointmentEventually Evan decided it wasn’t worth the effort to fight weekly for coverage He called his insurer and asked that his gender be changed to female "When I get insurance letters they don’t say ‘sir’ or ‘ma’am’ They say ‘Dear Evan Hempel’ and that’s just fine At the end of the day it was just frustrating to get denial after denial of services" Evan saidRelatedFamilyWhen I Finally Had My Kids I Didn’t Expect This: Grandparent EnvyFamilyWhen I Finally Had My Kids I Didn’t Expect This: Grandparent EnvyDespite the initial software limitation my brother got excellent care from the midwifery practice at Mount Auburn Practitioners had received some training from Makadon who had visited recently from Fenway to lead a grand rounds–an hour-long lecture open to anyone on staff at the hospital–on trans births They shared notes on Evan’s preferred gender pronouns and terms for his body and he had regular appointments with Storck who listened to his baby’s heartbeat checked in to see how he was feeling and referred him to an acupuncturist when he developed back painSeveral weeks before the birth I interviewed Storck who has an ebullient personality about her experience treating Evan She was supportive of my brother’s choice to get pregnant We both marveled at the technological advances and social changes that have enabled my brother’s efforts to make a family "If physiologically your body can do this and you’re comfortable with the process and still want to present as a man you can" she said "And that’s awesome"My nephew arrived on the day he was expected "I’m not sure he’s mine" my brother texted from the hospital "I’ve never been on time to anything in my entire life" Six days later my partner and I drove to Boston to meet the baby When we arrived Evan had just finished chest-feeding He answered the door in pajama bottoms and a nursing tank with the baby swaddled in the crook of his right elbow Evan handed my nephew to me and right away the baby began squalling his mouth gnawing at my arm I handed him back to my brother who gestured for all of us to sit at the big wooden kitchen table and then started chest-feeding againIf physiologically your body can do this and you’re comfortable with the process and still want to present as a man you can "And that’s awesome"We sat there like that in the kitchen of my brother’s second-floor apartment munching on the lemon bars my mom had made as the summer daylight stretched into evening The baby ate and slept and ate some more his right arm curled up to his chin Evan recounted the birth giving us a blow-by-blow He and his partner had arrived at the hospital just after midnight he said and as they lumbered toward the receiving room a nurse passed them "Can you imagine what she must have been thinking" my brother asked Here were a woman and a man walking toward the maternity ward The woman was weighed down with suitcases a backpack and the paperwork folder The man carried nothing but a purple yoga birthing ball and every few steps he’d push it up against the wall lean over it and moan Evan snickered and soon we were all laughing at the thought of itI asked Evan if childbirth had changed how he thought about his gender Wasn’t there some part of him that questioned his masculinity Since he’d first come out I’d watched him challenge our binary notions of gender–male or female boy or girl husband or wife And yet I still had questions Were you always a boy trapped in a girl’s body I wanted to ask him or are you really a girl who got lost for a decade "You know people who are not trans talk about being ‘trapped in a body’ But that’s not really the way my friends talk about it" he said "I was always Evan I always had these parts I always just felt like me and like I was a guy"As I puzzled over this he gulped milk from a glass with a blue sea horse on it There are sea horses all over their home–on onesies and bibs in drawings and stitched on blankets It has become Evan’s emblem because like my brother the male sea horse gives birth after carrying eggs in a protective pouch on his belly A sea horse’s masculinity is not threatened by gestation; it is reinforced by itEvan will continue to chest-feed for a while Eventually he’ll begin taking testosterone again His beard will fill out and the fuzz will return to his knuckles His chest will shrink to the point where his bind will be comfortable to wear again To outsiders his family will look like any other–a tossed-together

India has expressed its support for the Afghanistan government’s offer to the Taliban to participate in a peace process without preconditions despite the group’s "irreconcilable" nature and called for

would protect the rights of all Afghans including women children and the minorities deserve our full support" India’s Permanent Representative Syed Akbaruddin told the Security Council on Thursday He

demonstrated to all of us that they are irreconcilable" Representational image AFP At the same time he also called for a "robust response" to violence from an armed opposition "The irreconcilable guns need to be silenced" he added On 28 February Afghan president Ashraf Ghani offered a wide-ranging peace package to the Taliban at an international conference in Kabul The peace offer included a ceasefire inputs from the Taliban on a peace process elections in which the Taliban could participate and the release of prisoners Akbaruddin however warned that supporters of terrorists in Afghanistan have not been deterred "despite the international community’s efforts" to promote peace Without mentioning Pakistan by name he said that the international community must address the challenges faced by Afghanistan and the region from cross border terrorism emanating from safe havens and sanctuaries "There are still those who provide sanctuaries to support the dark agendas of terrorist organiations" like the Taliban Haqqani Network Islamic State Al-Qaeda Lashkar-e-Taiba and Jaish-e-Mohammed he said "If we are to preserve the achievements of Afghan women and girls the international community must continue to extend its full support to an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace and reconciliation process" Akbaruddin said at the meeting held on International Women’s Day It
