All photos courtesy of Laura Altobelli.Written by: Future GenerationsWe have our office and staff quarters up and running in the rural town of Urcos, about one hour south of the city of Cusco. Being home to one of the seven wonders of the world, Macchu Pichu, the city of Cusco has a multi-million dollar tourist industry but, paradoxically, in its rural areas among the highest rates of maternal and perinatal mortality in the country. One understands this when visiting our 28 project communities, divided into 62 sectors and annexes, which require a one, two or more-hour drive (or two to six-hour walk on foot) on rutty dirt roads through the Andes, there and back from the major towns of Urcos or Quiquijana on the main paved road through the river valley. Public transportation runs only on Sundays from communities. Not surprising that mothers are tempted to give birth at home or to delay seeking care for a sick newborn or infant when faced with that long walk.We selected the “highland communities” for our intervention since that is where the need is, where women and families tend to live in scattered homesteads with limited and pyramidal social organization. We have been pleased at the very positive response from community leaders and husbands to the idea that Women Leaders will be trained to teach women in their community.Community health promoters who have received training in the past have mostly been men. One told us, “How good that women will be trained: they are shy and need to be more active.” One woman, not so shy, who was chosen by other women in her community to receive training from the project as a Women Leader told everyone, “Now it will be a rule that every time we meet to pick up food [from a government food distribution program for children] I will make you stay to get a talk on health.” In another community, the men joked that they will be fine while the selected Women Leaders are away at training since they cook better than the women. At that, everyone laughed heartily.Share this:
Marcel Brands joins Everton boardby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveEverton football director Marcel Brands has joined the club’s board.Brands has already helped implement a number of important changes at Goodison Park and worked closely with manager Marco Silva, chairman Bill Kenwright and chief executive, Professor Denise Barrett-Baxendale, to secure the recruitment of seven players during last summer’s transfer window.He has started work on delivering the Club’s long-term, permanent football strategy.Brands said: “It gives me a lot of confidence that I’m a Board member now and I hope to do the best for our Club.“Being at Everton has been even better than I thought it would be. I was working at a great club in Holland and was happy there but it was a great chance for me to come to the Premier League and join Everton.“At the start I had a great feeling but it’s been a better feeling working here. I work with a lot of great people with blue blood and I’m confident we can achieve many good things in the future.”Kenwright added: “I think we’ve got a great Director of Football who has taken over and changed an awful lot. He has totally reorganised our scouting, he wants our kids to play the same as Marco’s first team and we are really happy with the team we have got. Marcel is terrific to work with. We really feel secure with Marco and Marcel. They won’t sign anyone who they don’t think will improve us.” TagsTransfersAbout the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say

NEW DELHI: The Aam Aadmi Party and the Jannayak Janata Party (JJP) on April 12 announced firming up an alliance in Haryana to fight on all 10 Lok Sabha seats in the state. The JJP was launched by former Haryana chief minister Om Prakash Chautala’s grandson Dushyant Chautala, following a power struggle in the state’s main opposition INLD last year. The JJP was formed in December last year following a split in the family of former Chief Minister Om Prakash Chautala, who heads the Indian National Lok Dal. Senior AAP leader Gopal Rai said the JJP will fight on seven seats.

Arvind Kejriwal has proposed an alliance between the AAP, JJP and the Congress but the grand old party rejected the proposal. Gopal Rai said, “If the Congress is confident of winning in Punjab without an alliance, AAP is also capable of winning all the seats in Delhi on its own. I would like to ask Surjewala if Congress had forgotten about its loss in the bypoll in Jind.” He said that Congress seemed to be self-obsessed and is in a state of confusion. “AAP took the decision to contest on 35 seats in different States as it felt it could defeat the BJP in these seats. The Congress, however, is ready to lose these seats as it is reluctant to form an alliance,” Rai said.
Cleveland Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue questions an official’s call during a game on Feb. 8 at in Cleveland. Credit: Courtesy of TNSFifty-two years.That is the amount of time since the city of Cleveland has been able to lay claim to a professional sports championship. Fifty-two years of long, agonizing pain for most Cleveland sports fans. However, a dawn seems to be coming.This year’s Cleveland Cavaliers look poised to be the city’s best chance in the past couple decades to defeat a sports curse that has plagued the town for the better part of the past century.The Cavs came as close to a championship in 2015 as any Cleveland team since the Indians lost in the bottom of the 11th inning in Game 7 of the 1997 World Series to the Florida Marlins. They lost in six games to the Golden State Warriors in a series in which they were hampered by injuries, playing without stars Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving.This year, the Cavaliers have had their ups and downs. Former coach David Blatt was fired about a month ago despite leading the team to a 30-11 record to start the season. Assistant coach Tyronn Lue was promoted to the head role, and the team is 10-4 since the move.Lue’s promotion, seemingly, was put in motion in order to counteract the Warriors’ offensive juggernaut, as many expect the two teams to meet again in the NBA Finals come June. Lue has stressed a more up-tempo offense, and it’s worked, evidenced by an increase in scoring from 101.4 points per game to 107.3 under the 38-year-old rookie coach.Although the team did not necessarily have bad conditioning before the coaching change, Lue has stated on many occasions that the Cavaliers need to get in better shape.This is something Cleveland will need if it goes up against the Warriors — a team that averages an astonishing 115.0 points per game and usually has five players on the court who can run in transition.One thing the Cavs have focused on is incorporating Love into their offense more. At times, Love looked out of place in Blatt’s offense, and he was visibly frustrated when he did not receive the ball.The Cleveland Cavaliers’ LeBron James (23) puts up a shot during a game against the Los Angeles Lakers’ Kobe Bryant in Cleveland on Feb. 10. Credit: Courtesy of TNSUnder Lue’s offense, Love has seen an increase in touches, both in the post and at the elbow.Love is especially dangerous at the elbow, where he is able to hit the mid-range jumper. In the post, he has success backing down his defender for a baby hook near the block or pass to open shooters like J.R. Smith and Richard Jefferson that spot up on the 3-point line.Channing Frye, who was recently acquired in a trade from Orlando, looks to play a pivotal part in the Cleveland offense as well. A 6-foot-11 post who shoots 3-pointers well, Frye playing alongside Love would give James four different options to kick the ball out to when he’s driving to the rim.Not surprisingly, a game plan to stop the Warriors first starts with containing Stephen Curry. Curry, the reigning MVP, is averaging 29.8 points per game this year and has terrorized the league from the 3-point line.Matthew Dellavedova proved capable at times guarding Curry in last year’s Finals. The key to his performance, and something the Cavs need to emulate again, is constant pressure on Curry. Whoever guards Curry has to pick him up right as he crosses half court and not leave his side until the rebound is secured.Additionally, if the Warriors do employ their small-ball lineup, Cleveland needs to use its size to gain an advantage on both the offensive and defensive boards.After losing to the Warriors last year in the Finals and both games this season, including a 132-98 blowout, the Cavaliers will undoubtedly have one eye on the Finals as they finish the season and head into the postseason.One could argue that Cleveland needs to focus on one game at a time. It’s a valid point, as the Cavs have a tendency at times this year to play down to the level of their opponents, namely a 106-97 loss to a Charlotte Hornets team playing with neither Al Jefferson nor Kemba Walker.However, the Cavaliers have shown they can make quick work of Eastern Conference foes in the playoffs. Besides perhaps the Toronto Raptors, no team poses a real threat to Cleveland’s hopes for back-to-back Finals appearances.Most importantly, the Cavaliers need to stay healthy. Fans and analysts alike have questioned, “What if?” in regards to Love and Irving’s absences in the Finals last year. Irving has a history of being injury-prone, so his minutes will need to be monitored as the Cavaliers advance deep into the playoffs.Despite what many say, the “Cleveland Curse” is real. Fans of the Cavaliers, Indians and Browns have gotten their hearts broken time and time again whenever it seems a championship run is impending. However, it is very possible that this just might finally be the year that the city of Cleveland can forget years of misery and rejoice as the Cavaliers bring home a championship.
