Please RSVP to globalhealth@wilsoncenter.org with your name and affiliation. About the event: Postpartum hemorrhage, eclampsia, and unsafe abortion are some of the leading causes of maternal deaths in developing countries. Maternal health supplies such as oxytocin, misoprostol, manual vacuum aspirators, and magnesium sulfate are crucial tools needed for effective interventions to address these issues. In order to expand access to these maternal health commodities increased research and coordination is needed to improve supply chain mechanisms and health care training.Melodie Holden, president, Venture Strategies Innovations, will discuss what maternal health supplies are available and share lessons learned for distributing these supplies to trained health care workers. Elizabeth Leahy Madsen, senior research associate, Population Action International, will discuss the access challenges and gaps in supply chain mechanisms. John Skibiak, director of the Reproductive Health Supplies Coalition, will address the feasibility of integrating maternal health supplies into existing family planning supply mechanisms. Dotian Wanogo Ali, chief technical advisor of reproductive health supplies, UNFPA, will share experiences and lessons learned for implementation of family planning and maternal health supply chains in Madagascar.About the Maternal Health Policy SeriesThe reproductive and maternal health community finds itself at a critical point, drawing increased attention and funding, but still confronting more than 350,000 deaths each year and a high unmet need for family planning. The Policy Dialogue series seeks to galvanize the community by focusing on important issues within the maternal health community. The Wilson Center’s Global Health Initiative is pleased to present this series with its co-conveners, the Maternal Health Task Force and the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), and is grateful to USAID’s Bureau for Global Health for further technical assistance.If you are interested, but unable to attend the event, please tune into the live or archived webcast.

first_imgAbout the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say Liverpool star van Dijk: Napoli loss no cause for panicby Freddie Taylora month agoSend to a friendShare the loveVirgil van Dijk has called for calm after Liverpool’s loss to Napoli in the Champions League.Van Dijk made a rare mistake for Napoli to make it 2-0 through Fernando Llorente in the dying stages of Tuesday’s clash at the San Paolo Stadium.But the Dutchman insists the result will not have a far-reaching impact on the Reds.”I don’t know if it’s a wake-up call,” the defender said of defeat in Naples. “Both sides were full in the game and thought it was going to be a draw. Obviously the penalty changed it all and we’re going home with no points but it shouldn’t be a wake-up call. “We’ve been performing since the start of the season outstanding so there’s no reason for panic. “The majority in the game we played well, we put them under pressure and we created opportunities on the break. “There’s a lot of positive things apart from the result. We have to try to win our other games and we now focus on Chelsea.” last_img read more

Posted on by

first_imgMelo Trimble hits game-winning three-pointer as time expires.Melo TrimbleWe just had a Big Ten thriller in Madison. No. 3 Maryland defeated Wisconsin 63-60 on a long three-pointer by point guard Melo Trimble with 1.2 seconds remaining.Trimble’s triple came after Wisconsin’s Bronson Koenig buried a three of a his own to knot the score at 60. Maryland head coach Mark Turgeon elected not to signal for a timeout, instead trusting his All-American point guard to win the game.Good decision.  That shot is the definition of long range. Note ESPN color commentator Dan Dakich saying “Too late” in the background. Dakich thought Trimble took too long before trying to attack.Looks like he knew what he was doing.last_img

Israelis among wounded in US synagogue attack

Posted on by

first_imgJerusalem: Two Israelis were among the Jews wounded in the weekend attack on a synagogue in California that killed one person and injured three others, an official said Sunday. An Israeli foreign ministry spokesman said an eight-year-old girl and her 31-year-old uncle wounded in the shooting attack in Poway, north of San Diego, on Saturday were from a southern town bordering the Gaza Strip. “The two moved from Sderot to San Diego a few years ago,” spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said in a statement, noting their condition was “good.” San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said both were wounded by shrapnel in the attack on the final day of the week-long Jewish holiday of Passover. A 60-year-old woman was killed in the attack, with the community’s rabbi wounded as well. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: ReportIsraeli Diaspora Minister Naftali Bennett called the slain woman, Lori Gilbert Kaye, “a Jewish hero” who threw herself “in the path of the murderer’s bullets to save the life of the rabbi.” Gore identified the suspect, who was arrested after fleeing the scene, as 19-year-old John Earnest and said he had no prior arrest record. US President Donald Trump denounced the shooting as a “hate crime”. Israeli President Reuven Rivlin called the attack “yet another painful reminder that anti-Semitism and hatred of Jews is still with us, everywhere.” “No country and no society are immune,” he said in a Sunday statement. “Only through education for Holocaust remembrance and tolerance can we deal with this plague.” The shooting in Poway’s Chabad synagogue came exactly six months after a white supremacist killed 11 people at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue — the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in US history.last_img read more

California Military Construction Projects Possibly Saved from Border Wall Delay

Posted on by

first_img ADC AUTHOR A memo last week from Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan appears to preserve $310 million in California military construction funds from diversion to border wall construction, Military.com reported Tuesday.California base officials believe construction projects at Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach, Camp Pendleton and Fort Irwin are safe from a list due out May 10 outlining $3.6 billion in funding that could be used for border wall construction, according Shanahan’s guidelines.Shanahan’s memo exempted projects awarded in fiscal 2019, which also includes a $118 million reconstruction of the docking facilities at Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach.Most new construction planned for the three California bases appear to meet Shanahan’s directive to not include projects that have “fiscal year 2019 award dates,” as ADC reported last week.But many in Congress remain wary over whether any military projects are safe, including in California.Rep. Harley Rouda (D-Calif.) toured the Seal Beach base Thursday and later released a statement expressing concern.Navy photo by Petty Officer 1st Class Aaron Bewkeslast_img read more

Green Shirt Guy just one highlight of city council meeting turned memefest

Posted on by

first_imgGreen Shirt Guy, aka Alex Kack, doing his thing. Video screenshot by Eric Mack/CNET For Alex Kack, going viral was as simple as putting on a green shirt and laughing. Kack was captured on camera losing it at a Tucson City Council meeting Tuesday night in a response to a pair of pro-Trump protesters. They disrupted the meeting with shouts and signs opposing the city’s move to put a measure on the November ballot to become a so-called “sanctuary city.”   Broadly, a sanctuary city is a local government with a policy of limiting its cooperation with the federal government’s enforcement of immigration laws.  I just found out my Halloween costume for 2019!

Decisions, decisions. pic.twitter.com/aLefkaNvkK— Joe Mills ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ 🇺🇸 (@JoeMill73489060) August 7, 2019 As if that weren’t enough, the same meeting also saw a tune delivered by the “Singing Sanctuary City Sisters.” Unfortunately, that name may be just too long for a hashtag, but they’ve still seen some love.  Plenty of tweets highlighted the polarized politics driving the scene, but others noted that green shirt sellers everywhere had been handed a marketing gift from heaven. “I know what I’m buying on Friday,” one Twitter user wrote along with a picture of a green shirt.  If you just can’t get enough of the Tucson City Council meme-fest, here are all its stars in one epic supercut.  I know what I’m buying on Friday. #GreenShirtGuy pic.twitter.com/5Ob2sc8ppI— Richard Garner (@Richard33510199) August 7, 2019 Remarkably, the very same city council meeting spawned a few other memes, like #banjoguy, which is exactly what you probably expect — an older gentleman in overalls singing a protest song.  Green Shirt Guy/Banjo Man/Singing Sanctuary City Sisters 2020— RoodDood (@DoraExplora1551) August 7, 2019 Kack, a progressive blogger, quickly inspired a barrage of tweets and sent the hashtag #greenshirtguy trending Wednesday, even as a major Samsung media event jostled for attention. center_img Comments Tags Scene inside a Tucson City Council Meeting.
