Tips to prevent slips trips and falls in winter weather

Dust off those grippy boots. Although it’s not yet officially winter, Niagara’s first snowfall of the season last week caused slippery conditions for pedestrians.Brock’s Office of Health, Safety and Wellness is reminding members of the Brock community to be mindful of snow and ice in walking areas and parking lots. The risk of slipping, tripping and falling can increase in winter weather conditions, particularly during storms when snow accumulation is significant.Some tips to avoid injury this season:Don’t rush or travel too quickly for the walking surface conditionsWear appropriate footwear for the outdoor conditionsPay attention to your surroundings while walkingDon’t take shortcuts through non-pedestrian/non-designated areas, such as snow banks or unclear pathsCarrying large objects can obstruct your vision and limit your ability to brace yourself in a fallFaculty, staff and students are encouraged to report slippery conditions on outdoor walking surfaces to Facilities Management customer service at 905-688-5550 x3717. Outside of regular business hours, urgent slip and trip circumstances can be reported to Campus Security Services at 905-688-5550 x3200.If an incident, injury, near miss or health and safety hazard is observed, report it to a person of authority such as an area supervisor or Brock employee. Circumstances should be reported through an injury/incident report. Completed reports and questions can be directed to Occupational Health and Safety Specialists Dan Pozzobon or Brian Dzurban via or x7233. read more

True 3D display created using a laser and 50000 dots per second

first_img3D capable displays are becoming pretty commonplace, but not everyone likes them. The problem is you either have to wear glasses to see the 3D, or are limited by the viewing angle with the non-glasses solutions. Even if you get it right, some people still feel sick after a while due to the way in which our eyes are being fed the 3D image. What we need is for someone to come up with a proper 3D display that doesn’t even need a flat screen.Burton Inc. is attempting just that and has demonstrated a new, true 3D display that uses a laser to create luminous points of light in 3D space.The technology used to create the display has been knocking around since 2006, and is a joint collaboration between Burton, the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST), and Keio University. It works by using the oxygen and nitrogen in the air to create a “plasma excitation.”In this early prototype the display can project 50,000 dots per second and works at up to 15 frames per second. It is hoped that can be increased to 30 frames per second for a very smooth and eye-friendly visual experience.While the video below shows everything rendered in green, the system is actually capable of full color by using red, green, and blue lasers together. It also has the benefit of working both in air and water, which could make for some interesting TV sets of the future.It may be a while before this technology becomes good enough to replace our 2D display TVs, but there are high hopes to get it used as a form of digital signage soon. That’s sure to catch your eye more than a poster or video advertisement does, at least until it becomes so commonplace no one notices it anymore.Read more at DigInfo TVlast_img read more

Ive always kept my finger on the pulse of the Greek community

first_imgTurning the clock back to 1989, Voula Messimeri-Kianidis AM is an exceptional tour operator to the past, carefully stopping at the points that need to be closely inspected, before we go on with the journey, leaving no gaps behind. It all starts at the AGWS (now trading as ‘Pronia’) offices on Corsair Street, in Richmond, where she succeeded Miranda DiGiorgio (before her, it was Niki Dollis and Nick Polites who were at the helm). “The organisation was already linked to all the services available in the multicultural grid of the era. I found the field well-plowed and the ground fertile. This should be acknowledged. But this is what gave me the urge to further pursue this. I had a lot of enthusiasm and I was eager to give to the community as much as I could. I wanted to seize any opportunity presented, in the best way possible.” Discussing her starting point seems to satisfy her, as it allows her to put things in their right perspective, revealing her diligence and the ‘key’ to her success in social service. SIGNIFICANT CONNECTIONS Yes, she admits to owing to important, indispensable, connections, both within the Greek community and the key-services of the state and federal government.“I tried from the start to get to know the Melbourne Greek community, to feel its pulse and trace its needs. I was at the helm of a dynamic organisation and the responsibility was immense. I had full sense of the demands of this position. Soon, I realised that more services were needed, which meant more funds to cover for them. So I moved in that direction, making bold but realistic demands. And I think this is the ‘key’ to success. Know the distance you can cover. Because, let’s not kid ourselves, this is a very demanding field with very subtle equilibrium. The competition is immense. We have to lodge hundreds of applications in order to succeed in specific goals.” TWENTY-SEVEN YEARS AGO First stop. 1989. What were the needs? “Almost three decades since the mass influx of Greek migrants to the country, most of them had experienced a rather rough landing; they might show some achievements of varied greatness, but, on the other hand, they paid a dear price. Many experienced severe health problems, having been injured, after spending long hours in hard labour. “At the same time, many of the factories that employed Greek workers ceased to operate, leaving them jobless and facing severe financial straits. So there was a great flow of people turning to the AGWS for help. “This found us in the position where we had to cover for pressing needs − food and clothing, for instance − but also function as an information desk for matters of urgency.” At this point I stop her, asking about the number of people working at AGWS and whether they were enough to cover for needs. “We started off with 19-20 people and now we have 150 officers and 150 employees. This fact alone says a lot for our community and its needs, of which some remain the same and others vary. Having said that, I need to associate it with our own role, which is to constantly be in touch with the community, to see to its needs, and in many cases to predict them, in order to be effective.” Which means her role is de facto multi-faceted and demanding. “This goes without saying. I knew from the start the demands of my role and my utmost wish was to be something more than what was expected of me. I have to say that it was myself who put the bar high and kept moving it upwards.” CHANGES A lot of things have changed regarding the needs of the core of the Greek community, she says, but, on the other hand, some problems, such as gambling, don’t seem to get better. “We have people coming to us, addicted to gambling, who have lost everything and don’t have enough to live by. We’re talking about first and second generation Greek Australians. That’s where major problems start from, such as families being scattered, family violence, a collapse of the social fabric. “Another ongoing issue is the drug problem, which is now greater. In many cases, it has got out of control, leaving grandparents burdened with the care of their grandchildren. All these factors call for initiatives to be taken. First of all, we need to get the sufficient funds from the state to cover for pressing needs and, at the same time to implement special programs. “I have to stress that it is very difficult to get funds for drug-related policies, because, to put it simply, while the problem gets bigger, especially where ‘ice’ use is concerned, funds are allocated to no more than two or three big services. We don’t get any funds.” A MYTH The usual argument presented by the state is that the Greek community, as well as the Italian and those formed during mass migration, have adapted and integrated to the main social fabric, so there’s no need for special programs and services for them. “This is just a myth. On the contrary, the needs of the community are bigger, the difference being that some have differentiated. The community is growing old and the demands are overwhelming. We know very well that the existing establishments − aged care and geriatric facilities − of Frontida are not enough. The waiting lists are too long. The Australian population is ageing and the state aims to keep as many people possible at home for as long as possible, for obvious reasons. “This is where we are called to play a significant role. We have care facilities in Brunswick, Sunshine, Balwyn and Clayton, where we tend to 360 aged people a week. We bring them in once or twice a week and we provide them with care, entertainment, while at the same time, giving their children − who are also their carers − the chance to take a break”. LONELINESS Another issue faced by the first generation of Greek Australians is that of loneliness brought by isolation. This is a huge problem, which only grows bigger as time marches on. “As we know very well, a large number of our fellow Greek Australians live in the outer suburbs, where they lack social contact. Many are unable to travel, either because they don’t drive anymore, or due to poor health, so a visit from our volunteers, even if it happens once a week, is very important and even necessary. “This is a sector where volunteering plays a significant role and needs to be pointed out. Besides, as I mentioned earlier, they are as many as Pronia’s officers, so we ought to be really grateful.” ‘YOUNG BLOOD’ Speaking of changes to the fabric of the community, we cannot neglect the wave of new migrants. What is the role of the Pronia, in this case? “It is very demanding. First, we need to clarify that they might be new migrants, but they are radically different, in broader terms, from the migrants of the ’50s and the ’60s who came to this country − most of them − unskilled and uneducated and had no other option than to accept the hardest and most strenuous jobs available, those that the locals avoided. “Greeks coming to Australia today, urged to migrate as a result of the Greek financial crisis, are university degree holders, they know the language − sometimes better than the locals − so their expectations are different. The main problem is that they come without being fully informed first, in what concerns the job opportunities, the degree recognition and the overall function of the system. Having said that, I’d like to add that some have already done their research, saving themselves from surprise. When they come to us for help, our role is multifaceted. They seek information for all the issues they face, so we have to be in a position to assist them, something that happens in most cases. But there are also some ‘hard’ issues, so to speak, when we are called to cater for pressing needs, such as schoolchildren who don’t have uniforms, or young parents seeking work, and so on.” My impression is that Voula Messimeri will be complete when she leaves Pronia. This is not a conclusion I have formed recently, but throughout the years that I’ve been following her career and activity. This woman, who arrived in Australia in 1969, a 13-year-old teenager from Kalambaka accompanied by her grandmother, ascended a steep way uphill to the top, achieving her goal with impressive success. She now urges the community to pursue what it deserves. Good luck Voula with your next ventures, which we suspect will be relevant to your beliefs and your desire to offer to the common good.

Neil Warnock rues denied penalties in Huddersfield draw

first_imgCardiff City manager Neil Warnock says they were unlucky not to have been awarded a penalty in their goalless draw with Huddersfield Town on Saturday.Despite Warnock’s claims, Cardiff City should count them lucky after referee Lee Mason overturned a penalty he awarded to Huddersfield Town in the 76th minute.Cardiff felt they were denied clear penalty calls when Philip Billing’s header hit Erik Durm’s arm and when Hoilett was brought down by Hadergjonaj.“We knew we’d be struggling a little bit today,” Warnock told Sky Sports.“We had one or two players who shouldn’t have been playing. Callum Paterson and Victor Camarasa weren’t really fit but I wanted to play them.Danny CowleyCowley explains why he changed his mind about Huddersfield Manuel R. Medina – September 9, 2019 Last week Danny Cowley rejected the chance to coach Huddersfield Town in the English Championship, but today he accepted saying it was a good opportunity.“I thought we had the opportunities but we didn’t get the rub of the green although thankfully the linesman was alert to overturn the penalty. We thought ours was a certain penalty for a foul on [Junior] Hoilett.“The lad doesn’t see him coming, he gets to the ball first, and he takes the man.“I don’t understand why they can’t be given but I suppose next season with VAR, we’ve got a chance.”last_img read more

Kiran Bedi faces legal setback Cant interfere in Puducherry govt affairs rules

first_imgPuducherry Chief Minister V Narayanaswamy had accused Kiran Bedi of working on orders of the Central Government.Puducherry Lieutenant Governor (LG) Kiran Bedi has suffered a major setback after the Madras High Court on Tuesday, April 30, curtailed her powers, stating that the LG has no powers to interfere with the day-to-day activities of the Union Territory. This development came as a major relief for Puducherry Chief Minister V Narayanaswamy.Both Bedi and Narayansamy were locked in a war of words over alleged interference in the state’s policies ever since she assumed office two years back on May 2016.The Madras HC’s verdict came today after hearing a writ petition filed by Puducherry Congress legislator K Lakshminarayanan against Bedi. “Bedi does not have to power to call for files and give orders to the officials,” the court mentioned in its judgement.”The Madras HC said the Lt Governor doesn’t have any right to interfere with the powers of Puducherry CM. The administrative and financial powers are with the elected government of Puducherry and the Bedi has to act as per the advice of the Council of Ministers,” Lakshminarayanan stated.Earlier, the Puducherry Chief Minister had accused Kiran Bedi of working on orders of the Central Government to disrupt the functioning of the state government. Narayanasamy had said that Bedi has no power at all. “Bedi has to only be a post office and sign papers which have been sent by the council of ministers. She has no right to touch cabinet decisions…she is vetoing decisions. She is being encouraged by the PM to create problems for our government,” the CM said.In reply, Kiran Bedi stated: “Sad to see when a Chief Minister sends a letter to Lt Governor and within a week demands a reply by force of a ‘dharna’/ blockade of Raj Nivas. Also makes unfounded allegations, misleading people in the state of Puducherry.”However, Kiran Bedi had denied all allegations levelled on her, saying she goes by the rule book. Bedi stated that she had been functioning in terms of the powers conferred on her under the Government of Union Territories Act of 1963. Puducherry went to polls on April 18, as part of the second phase of the seven-phased Lok Sabha 2019 elections. Results will be declared on May 23.last_img read more

Kamal sends letter to PM seeking dialogue again

first_imgPrime minister Sheikh Hasina and Kamal HossainJatiya Oikya Front chief Kamal Hossain sent another letter to ruling Awami League president and prime minister Sheikh Hasina on Sunday seeking the second phase of talks with her over the next general election, reports UNB. Three Gano Forum leaders—Jaglul Haider Afrik, AHM Shafiq Ullah and Mostak Ahmed—carried the letter to Awami League President’s Dhanmondi office around 12:00pm.Talking to UNB, Mostak Ahmed said they handed over the letter to an office assistant, Masud Alauddin.In the letter he said, Kamal Hossain urged prime minister to hold a small-scale dialogue with Oikya Front over the next general election.Earlier on Saturday night, a meeting of the alliance’s steering committee at Kamal Hossain’s Motijheel chamber decided to send the letter to the prime minister.After the meeting, BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir said, “Jatiya Oikya Front had a dialogue with her (PM) on 1 November, and it was discussed that a small-group dialogue with us can be held again. Based on that, the prime minister will be given another letter tomorrow, Sunday.”In the letter, he said, they will mention about the Oikya Front’s letter sent to the Election Commission urging it not to announce the election schedule until the dialogue is over.Fakhrul hoped that the talks will be held on a small-scale on the country’s current political crisis.Earlier, Kamal, on behalf of the Oikya Front, sent a letter to the Election Commission urging it not to announce the schedule for next election until the ongoing dialogue ends.On 1 November, a 23-member delegation of 14-party, led by Sheikh Hasina, sat in talks at Ganabhaban with Kamal Hossain-led 20-member Oikya Front team.After the meeting, Oikya Front leaders said they placed their seven-point demand before prime minister Sheikh Hasina but did not find any specific solution except some good words about rallies and meetings.Sheikh Hasina invited the Oikya Front leaders to join the dialogue on 29 October following a letter sent to her by Kamal Hossain on behalf of the alliance, seeking talks on election issues.last_img read more

Typical Casino Patrons Have Solid Careers Better Education

first_imgThe HorseShoe Casino Baltimore will stage its grand opening, Aug. 26, welcoming an estimated 10,000 guests through its doors.Over time, however, the casino’s patrons will not be distinguished so much by race but by income and education, experts said.“There is not much data on the racial breakdown of casino-goers,” said gambling expert James KarmelIn terms of general gambling patterns, Whites are more frequent gamblers (92.5 percent), followed by African Americans (87.5 percent) and Hispanics (86.6 percent), according to a 2011 study by researchers at the University of Maryland, Baltimore County.However, when it comes to the subset of casino gamblers, there are much clearer distinctions based on education and income,Karmel added.“Casino-goers tend to be slightly more educated that non-Casino-goers. And, typically, casino gambling is associated with income.For the vast majority of people, gambling at casinos is a recreational activity; they’re doing it with disposable income, money they can afford to spend,” Karmel, a professor of history at Harford Community College, said.“You just don’t find a lot of poor people in casinos,” he added. “People at lower income levels can’t afford to lose $50; they need that for food.”However, poorer Americans—who tend to prefer gambling closer to home—are more likely to spend their income on lottery games, as are African Americans.“Lottery is more dependent on lower-income people [and] African Americans are somewhat more likely to gamble on the lotterythan Whites,” Karmel said.Those assertions were borne out in a 2010 study conducted by UMBC researchers.Published in The Journal of Gambling Business and Economics, the study titled “Who Pays for Maryland Lottery? Evidence fromPoint of Sale Data” married lottery terminal locations with Census tract data and examined the results using geographic information system maps to explore how racial and income groups contribute to state lottery revenues.The findings showed “the voluntary tax collected by the Maryland lottery comes disproportionately from census tracts populatedby African Americans and low-income residents,” specifically those “with less than a high school education, and people age 65 andolder.”Again, with regards to casino gaming, even as city officials, casino owners and gambling aficionados welcome the new parlor, African Americans are more vulnerable to some of the ills of gambling.According to the 2011 UMBC study, “Gambling Prevalence in Maryland: A Baseline Analysis,” which was commissioned by Maryland’s Department of Health and Mental Hygiene, African Americans are 12.5 percent at risk of becoming problem gamblersand have a 4.9 percent rate of pathological gambling.Comparatively, Whites are less likely to be at risk of developing problem gambling at 8.2 percent, and experience a mere 2 percent of pathological gambling concerns.last_img read more

Nicaragua withdraws from OAS defense treaty

first_imgTIQUIPAYA, Bolivia – Nicaraguan officials announced Wednesday that the country is withdrawing – along with Venezuela, Bolivia and Ecuador – from a regional defense treaty dating back to the Cold War.The treaty calls for Organization of American States (OAS ) members to defend each other if attacked by an outside party.“Our countries have made the decision to bury what deserves to be buried, to throw into the trash what is no longer useful,” Ricardo Patiño, Ecuador’s foreign minister, said in reference to the Inter-American Treaty of Reciprocal Assistance.The treaty, created in 1947 under U.S. leadership at the start of the Cold War, was considered an important tool for the United States, which was able to exert influence on Latin America until the 1980s.The pullout was announced at a meeting between members of the OAS in Bolivia. The four countries exiting the treaty have taken issue with the OAS’ Inter-American Commission on Human Rights.

Growth Rates Climbing In LowerEnd Home Prices

first_img Bottom-tier housing prices are escalating at rates competitive with top-tier properties, and in some cases surpassing them greatly, according to according to the May Zillow Real Estate Market Reports, released Friday.Nationally, the bottom third of the market is seeing fewer price cuts on listed homes and faster growing home values than more expensive homes. May’s numbers showed that while top-tier prices have cooled to a steady 4 percent growth, bottom-tier prices were up 8 percent in May.However, these month-over-month changes are starkly different from year-over-year figures. Compared to last May, top-tier price growth is down by half a percent and bottom-tier price growth is almost 9 percent lower, according to Zillow.In some markets, the gulf between those rate-increase percentages in May was notably larger. The Dallas-Fort Worth market had the largest gains in bottom-tier growth (21.6 percent) in a market that saw 9.5 percent growth in top-tier prices and a 12.5 percent appreciation in middle-tier prices. D-FW’s average home value of $187,900 is also close to the U.S. average of $186,100, according to Zillow.Similarly, Denver reported 8.2 percent growth at the top and nearly 18 percent growth at the top, while Houston  saw 2.4 percent growth at the top and 13.4 percent growth at the bottom.In most markets, bottom-tier growth in May was higher than top-tier growth, though a few metros, such as Boston, Virginia Beach, Baltimore, and Seattle, saw nearly identical growth at both ends. New York/Northern New Jersey saw higher top-tier growth than bottom-tier, posting 5.1 percent and 3 percent rates, respectively.Only Indianapolis showed negative growth, posting a 1.8 percent decrease in top-tier prices and a 3.3 percent decrease in middle-tier prices. Information for bottom-tier properties was not recorded.For buyers, according to Svenja Gudell, Zillow’s chief economist, the demand for lower-tier houses could create a lot of bidding wars, and Zillow has, correspondingly, seen buyers turn toward higher-end properties, where growth rates availability have stabilized.“The number of homes for sale at the top of the market has remained flat over the past year, while inventory in the bottom-third is down almost 9 percent,” Gudell said. “Some markets are worse than others‒‒in Portland, there are almost 40 percent fewer entry-level homes for sale than a year ago.” Share in Daily Dose, Featured, News, Origination Growth Rates Climbing In Lower-End Home Pricescenter_img Home Prices Housing Market Zillow 2016-06-24 Seth Welborn June 24, 2016 470 Views last_img read more
