LocalNews Child Assault Prevention project launched in 6 schools by: – February 19, 2016 Goodwill Primary School students do the “Strong” sign as they learn their rights in the new child abuse prevention program (Photo credit: ICAP)As part of East Dominica Children’s Federation support towards creating safe and protective school environment through the Child Friendly Schools initiative, a Child Assault Prevention (CAP) Project has been launched in 6 primary schools around Dominica. Numerous consultations with children in Dominica have emphasized that the right to children’s security and protection needs enforcement in homes and schools. Due to ongoing advocacy, children themselves, youth, adults, civil society and the public sector are voicing the urgent need to make this a priority. This project is undertaken in partnership with the International Center for Assault Prevention (ICAP) headquartered in New Jersey, The West Dominica Children’s Federation and the Government of Canada Fund for Local Initiatives through grant funding of EC$48,573.00.The participating schools are Salybia, Sineku, San Sauveur, Mahaut, Penville and St. Luke’s Primary.It follows a successful pilot funded by CFLI, UNICEF and ChildFund in 2015 in which 40 child and social workers were trained to facilitate the project for over 900 participants in two urban Primary Schools in Dominica (Goodwill Primary and Roseau Primary). The expansion of this initiative seeks to replicate the favorable outcomes from the pilot phase and provides the opportunity to empower teachers, parents and most importantly, children to avoid, prevent and resolve conflict/assault by peers and adults and thereby create a more inclusive and supportive school, home and societal climate. It directly teaches children to recognize and deal with potentially dangerous situations, and train teachers and parents to help. The completion of school staff and parents workshops over the past weeks have set the stage for the commencement of the classroom workshops on Monday 22 February 2016 and run through the second week of March. Some of the funds will also cater to additional workshops on Rights-Based Approach and Ethical Behaviour Policy and Procedures in working with children and youth as well as a forum for NGOs to review the Child Abuse Reporting Protocol and make recommendations to the appropriate authorities within the next few weeks. 234 Views no discussions Share Tweet Share Share Sharing is caring!

Japan’s NEC Corporation, along with NTT Communications, NTT DOCOMO and TOBU RAILWAY CO. LTD. conducted an HD-video transmission on a high-speed train using a 5G Base Station. The test was conducted in Kasukabe City, Saitama, Japan, using a train on the Tobu Skytree Line from December 17 to 21, 2018.The 5G base station and the mobile station equipped with the Massive MIMO antenna that support the 4.5 GHz band featured enhancements based on results from “The research and development project for realization of the fifth-generation mobile communications system” commissioned by the Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications, Japan.4K and 8K high-definition videos were transmitted from a 5G base station installed along the railroad, corresponding to the 4.5 GHz band and 28 GHz band, to a 5G mobile station located inside a train running at approximately 90 km/h and projected on a large display in real time. In addition, the videos were transmitted to 40 smartphones on the train via wireless LAN.The NEC 5G base station was equipped with a Massive MIMO antenna, which forms beams (directivity) that concentrate power on the location and direction of the 5G mobile station. Since the antenna always forms optimal beams for a mobile station by making the beams track the mobile station in motion, it is capable of realizing a high-data transmission rate and high-quality wireless data communication, even for a mobile station installed inside a moving train, as in this demonstration.The demonstration of 5G enables the transmission of high-presence and high-definition video content, even on a train or a bus in motion, providing a service that allows the distribution of large-capacity content in a variety of media, regardless of the location or situation. Moving forward, NEC will continue to work on 5G verification throughout a wide range of use cases, such as urban and rural areas.The demonstration includes part of the results of a 5G Integrated Verification Trial conducted by NTT Communications in 2018, “The commissioned research and examination concerning technical conditions, etc. for the fifth-generation mobile communications system capable of high-speed communication exceeding 1 Gbps on average during moving at high-speed,” commissioned by Japan’s Ministry of Internal Affairs and Communications.

Related Topics The Cleveland Indians have placed Outfielder Tyler Naquin on the 10-day disabled list, the team announced Saturday afternoon. The team also activated reliever Tyler Olson from the paternity list in the weekend roster move.Naquin has had a very good start to the 2018 campaign, batting .333 in 30 games with eleven runs batted in. He’s bounced back incredibly well from a tough sophomore season that saw him fall out of favor in the outfield to find himself back in the fold.The 27-year old left Friday’s game against the Kansas City Royals with left hamstring tightness and is just the latest Indians outfielder to hit the disabled list. Bradley Zimmer’s crash into the outfield wall put him out of action just a week ago.Olson’s return from the paternity list was rather quick, considering he was just placed on it Friday. The left-handed reliever will hopefully add some sort of stability in the bullpen after Andrew Miller was activated off the DL on Friday.So far this season, Olson hasn’t been his stellar self. He’s appeared in fifteen games and has a 6.75 ERA. Elijah Mooneyham has been a dedicated sports fan his whole life.

The Heisman hopeful hobbled off the field, not a stranger to the Vols’ pressure, which overwhelmed his Aggies the entire game.It was that kind of night for the Vols.In front of a sold out crowd of 102,455 in Neyland Stadium, Tennessee dismantled Utah State, 38-7, on Sunday night in a game they never trailed.The scoring started early for the Vols. On a six-play, 70 yard drive, Tennessee quarterback Justin Worley drove the young Vols down the field, capped by a 8-yard Pig Howard sidestep into the end zone.Howard led the receiving corps in catches with six for 37 yards.It only took fourteen seconds for the Vols to strike again. On a possession set up by a Utah State turnover, Worley connected with Brendan Downs for a 12-yard score, his only catch of the night, to push Tennessee’s early lead to 14.Worley threw a career high 27 completions for 273 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions on the night.The Vols took a 17-0 lead into the locker room at the half, which could have been inflated, reaching Aggies’ territory on five consecutive possessions before the half resulting in only a field goal.But Worley’s night wasn’t over.He would connect on his first 13 passes to begin the second half. For the game, he threw to ten different receivers, with touchdown passes going to Downs, Von Pearson and Jalen Hurd.Heavy reliance on a stout recruiting class was imminent before the season.Head Coach Butch Jones played 21 true freshman, the most in a Vols’ opening game. He also played 11 other players who played in their first Tennessee game. The Vols shined offensively, but the play of the defense, for Vols’ fans, was a sight for sore eyes.In 2013, Tennessee ranked 107th in total defense.On Sunday, It was difficult to tell.Senior A.J. Johnson led the defense with nine tackles and an interception. He also made in impact in special teams, forcing a Utah State fumble recovered by freshman and Webb product Todd Kelly Jr. Sophomore Cameron Sutton also chipped in with an interception of his own and sophomore Jaylen Reeves-Maybin led the team in tackles with ten.The Vols defense forced three turnovers, Utah State didn’t force any, something they had accomplished in their last 23 games.The buzz surrounding the Vols’ top recruiting class, as well as a Sunday start on Boomsday weekend made the game the first sellout for a Vols’ home opener since 2007 — a 39-19 win against Southern Mississippi.The victory marked Tennessee’s 20th consecutive home opener win.Next week, the Vols have a 12 p.m. ET start on Saturday against Arkansas State.
He was inevitably always in the shadow of his father and that may be why after retirement he’s taken an unusual path, being a sports director at AEK Larnaca, then the same at Maccabi Tel Aviv and now manager at Chongqing Dangdai.There would certainly have been opportunities in Dutch football, and the Catalan press have made it clear multiple times that Barcelona have made efforts to get him involved with the club.So far, Jordi hasn’t been interested enough.One thing he does do in Dutch football is a column for De Telegraaf, taking it in turns with others to share his thoughts on current issues in the game.This week, the 44 year old compares and contrasts Barcelona and Manchester United, and clearly believes that the English club has been left to slide too far.A 4-1 victory over Fulham at the weekend saw Jose Mourinho’s side climb to sixth in the Premier League table, but for Jordi that’s way too low… even in a bad period.‘In and around Old Trafford everything was all about winning. At home or away, Manchester United always went for the win. Everyone in the club was busy with it every day.That is why the current situation worries me. If Barcelona has a bad year, the club will not finish in third place in the Spanish league. That should also apply to Manchester United, but is not the case. In recent years, the club has been struggling to stay even in the Premier League’s sub-top.’Whereas once it was an easy choice between United or City, if a player was given the option, Jordi believes it’s now very different and that this is a sign of problems in itself.‘The choice of the Barcelona trio Guardiola, Begiristain and Soriano indicates that Manchester City works from a clear philosophy and that is connected both sportingly and professionally.That’s missing at Manchester United. I don’t get the feeling that there is a clear plan that indicates which way everyone in the club should go. And if you do not take any steps in the current Premier League, you will be caught up. Manchester United now sees almost weekly that the competition has indeed not stopped.Then another danger arises. Like any other footballer, I didn’t have to think for a second whether I should choose Manchester United or Manchester City. Just like Barcelona, the attraction of Manchester United was irresistible. Because of the developments at City it is no longer so obvious that a footballer now blindly chooses United.’by Taboolaby TaboolaSponsored LinksSponsored LinksPromoted LinksPromoted LinksTrending TodayForge of Empires – Free Online GameIf You Like to Play, this Game is a Must-HaveForge of Empires – Free Online GameUndoRaid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadEven Non-Gamers Are Obsessed With This RPG Game (It’s Worth Installing!)Raid: Shadow Legends | Free DownloadUndoCoworking Space | Search AdsThe cost of shared office in Hong Kong might surprise youCoworking Space | Search AdsUndoCNBC InternationalHere’s How Big Businesses in Singapore Are Managing the Impact of COVID-19.CNBC InternationalUndoKeto减肥1個簡單的妙招一夜「融化」腹部贅肉（今晚試試）Keto减肥UndoSmart Tech TrendOver 55?
