He had a good heart says Brydon Whitstones family after man killed

first_imgDennis WardAPTN NewsBrydon Whitstone’s family is speaking out after the 22-year-old man was shot and killed by the RCMP Sunday in North Battleford, Sask.Whitstone was a “good uncle, brother, father, and Mosom,” niece Brandy Whitstone-Waskewitch told APTN News.RCMP said in a media release after the shooting they had pursued a vehicle following reports of being chased and shot at. The police chase ended shortly after the suspect rammed a cruiser and officers opened fire.Regina Police have been called in to look at several questions, including how the RCMP handled the encounter and how many shots were fired.A woman who was in the vehicle and an RCMP officer also suffered minor injuries.Whitstone was from Onion Lake Cree Nation about 200 km northwest of Battleford.Whitstone leaves behind a son and daughter.Whitstone-Waskewitch said he will be missed.“He had a good heart, he was always with his friends or with his kids or family.”Brydon Whitstone’s sister Tammy Whitstone said he was always there for people.“He was loving, caring, funny,” she said. “If anyone was in trouble or had trouble he was there to talk to.“ He will always be in our hearts, loved and never forgotten,” Whitstone said in an interview via social media.A review of the fatal shooting will be overseen by the provincial Justice Ministry.Bobby Cameron, chief of the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations, says he’s been getting calls and messages questioning the details around the 22-year-old man’s death.Cameron said the shooting furthers the mistrust First Nations people have toward the justice system, and he adds there is also a lack of trust in the independent investigation that has been called.He said the FSIN has long wanted to see First Nations represented at such investigations.“The majority of people that are incarcerated are First Nations people. Wouldn’t it make sense to have one of our own First Nations legal experts involved in all these processes?” he asked.Cameron suggested involving First Nations people would be a step toward rebuilding trust in the justice system.Contact Dennis here: dward@aptn.calast_img read more

IndiaBdesh Home Minister level talks next week in Delhi

first_imgNEW DELHI: Amidst hectic political campaign Home Minister Rajnath Singh has invited his Bangladesh counterpart Asaduzzaman Khan for bilateral talks next week here.Though Singh is also contesting the Lok Sabha poll from Lucknow constituency, he thought it was important to have the 7th round of bilateral talks before the polls. During the polls, most of the paramilitary forces would be deployed all over the country. India needs special cooperation from Bangladesh to keep a strict vigil on the border and especially to the sensitive areas. Intelligence agencies have alerted the government for a possible terrorist attack to disrupt the poll process. Official sources said Bangladesh and India will discuss trans-border security, cross border trafficking and border management issues during the home minister-level talks slated to be held on April 1. Bangladesh Minister will arrive in the capital on 31st March and will leave for Dhaka on 2nd April. Asaduzzaman Khan and Rajnath Singh will lead their respective sides to the talks. The 6th round of home ministerial talks was held in Dhaka in October last year when Indian Home Minister Rajnath Singh visited Bangladesh. The sources further said they might discuss other issues like Rohingya influx into Bangladesh, their repatriation, restriction on visa issuance (except emergency need) before and during the general election in India that begins from April 11. It’s reported in Dhaka press that law and order situation is fast deteriorating in the makeshift refugee camps for the displaced Rohingyas. Indian intelligence agencies have also alerted their counterparts in Bangladesh about a possible influx of some radical groups and illegal arms are also found in the camp. In two occasions Bangladesh police had to fire to disperse the armed groups. In fact, Bangladesh Government has also urged the India Government to take up this refugee crisis with the Myanmar government for speedy repatriation of the displaced person to their homeland. Last month, Bangladesh foreign minister Dr A K Abdul Momin visited India and gave a new proposal to Indian External Affair Minister for consideration. Their proposal was to create a safe zone for the Rohingyas in the Rakhine Province and that zone should be monitored by both friendly countries like India and China. So far, the India government has not given any positive response. Bangladesh Home minister is likely to raise the same issue to Home Minister Rajnath Singh. In this meeting, the opening of a new consulate in southern state Tamil Nadu will get importance. Bangladesh High Commissioner Syed Moazzem Ali had recently visited Chennai to expedite the process. Last year, both countries signed a revised visa protocol. Officials said both sides will review the progress on this issue and apart from Home minister, Home Secretary, representatives from all security agencies and Indian High Commissioner Riva Das Ganguly will be present for the day-long deliberation.last_img read more

At UN Assembly Gulf Mideast leaders call for urgent action against terrorist

King Abdullah II of Jordan stressed that radical terrorism has been on the rise and that terrorists prey on differences between communities to spread their radical ideas through fear, violence and anger. “They target religious differences, hoping to kill cooperation and compassion among the billions of people, of all faiths and communities, who live side-by-side in our many countries. These outlaw gangs use suspicion and ignorance to expand their own power,” he said.He also pointed out that the emergence of terrorism in conflict-prone regions has led to a ‘third world war,’ which is not being responded to appropriately by the international community.“What if they were not defeated? What would our world look like? Can we tolerate a future where mass murder, public beheadings, kidnapping and slavery are common practices? Where the persecution of communities is law? Where humanity’s cultural treasures, preserved for thousands of years are systematically destroyed? I’ve called this crisis a third world war and I believe we must respond with equal intensity. That means global collective action on all fronts,” he added. He introduced a seven-step process through which such issues can be tackled. These include respecting one another’s faith, curbing radical ideas that spread violence, integrating our value system into everyday life, moderating the use of advanced media by extremists, recognizing the motives of radicals, being intolerant to intolerance and bringing communities together through advanced methods of communication. Jordan’s King Abdullah also called on world leaders to increase humanitarian assistance to regions affected by the refugee crisis. “It is the world’s obligation to find solutions and provide relief for the millions of refugees in my region. Today we are still facing huge shortfalls, cuts, threats to vital UN programmes and agencies, including the [UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East], the [Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees and the [World Food Programme],” he added. King Abdullah also commented on the lack of assistance Jordan has received since it began providing refuge to Syrians four years ago. “Support to our country has been small fraction of the cost we have endured. It is high time that the international community acts collectively in facing this unprecedented humanitarian crisis, and support countries like Jordan and Lebanon which have been carrying the brunt of this burden over the past four years,” he said.Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani, Amir of Qatar reiterated the need to take a strong and collective stance against terrorism in his speech while addressing the annual General Debate at the UN. Amir of Qatar Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al-Thani addresses the general debate of the General Assembly’s seventieth session. UN Photo/Cia Pak“The phenomenon of terrorism with its dire consequences imposes grave political, security and economic challenges before nations and peoples. There is so doubt that tension and conflict zones have contributed to the emergence of terrorist organizations.” In addition, the international community’s failure in addressing the hotbeds of tension and conflict has also contributed to creating an environment that advocates the execution of terrorist operations, he said.The Qatari leader also stressed the need to arrive at a faster solution to the Israel-Palestine dispute. “The just and lasting solution of Palestinian cause, which remains an issue of people displaced from their land, and are still under the yoke of occupation, cannot be delayed to the next generation,” said Sheikh Tamir. “Allow me to send a message to all major parties of the international community in general that the continuation of the Palestinian cause without a permanent and just solution is a stigma at the face of humanity,” he added. Sheikh Tamir also spoke of the catastrophic consequences that have ensued due to untimely responses and lack of action to end the Syrian crisis. “It was incumbent on the international community to stop the massacres at the right time, and provide the conditions for the Syrian people to put forward a rational, civil and fair alternative to tyranny. But is there a tyranny in the world that could acknowledge an alternative? Is it possible for a tyranny to allow an alternative to grow and develop under its shadow?” he questioned at the Assembly.He urged the international community to cooperate and impose a solution to the Syrian crisis. “I call for cooperation in order to impose a political solution in Syria that would end the rein of tyranny and replacing it with a pluralistic regime based on equal citizenship for all Syrians defeat radicalism and terrorism and insulate Syria from them, repatriate the displaced to their homes, and allows reconstruction of Syria.”The 70th General Assembly opened this year with the adoption of Agenda 2030 and 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Made up of all the 193 Member States of the United Nations, the Assembly provides a forum for multilateral discussion of international issues covered by the UN Charter. read more

Womens Basketball No 5 Ohio State drops backandforth overtime game 9590 to

Ohio State senior guard Asia Doss delivers a pass during the Buckeyes’ game against Louisville on Nov. 12. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports EditorPlaying on the same court on which the 2018 Final Four will take place, No. 5 Ohio State and No. 9 Louisville played a back-and-forth contest featuring a high pace and 60 combined 3-point attempts. But just two days after the Buckeyes took down No. 10 Stanford 85-64, they could not defeat their second top-10 opponent in a row.Behind junior guard Asia Durr’s 47 points, the Louisville women’s basketball team staved off a fourth-quarter comeback from Ohio State which sent the game into overtime and beat the Buckeyes 95-90 Sunday evening at Nationwide Arena.Durr hit shot after shot from beyond the arc, finishing 16-for-29 from the field and 9-for-15 on 3-point attempts. The Cardinals rode her to victory as she scored 13 of her team’s 15 overtime points.Ohio State made a run late in the fourth quarter. Senior guard Kelsey Mitchell drilled a 3-pointer with 2:32 remaining to give Ohio State its first lead since the beginning of the third quarter. It came back from an eight-point deficit with 4:55 remaining to pull ahead of the Cardinals.With Louisville leading by one point, redshirt senior forward Stephanie Mavunga rejected forward Myisha Hines-Allen’s shot with 10 seconds remaining. Mitchell recovered the ball and raced up the court, but was fouled by guard Jazmine Jones. She converted just one of two free throws to tie the game at 80. Mitchell seemed nonexistent in the first half as she entered halftime with just three points. But the preseason All-American exploded down the stretch, scoring 23 of her 26 points in the in the second half. She added a game-high eight assists.Ohio State redshirt senior guard Linnae Harper added 21 points and seven rebounds. Mavunga, who had 23 points and 26 rebounds against Stanford, was held in check for most of the game. She had just four points and six rebounds in 30 minutes. She and Mitchell fouled out in overtime.Ohio State’s success — or failure — was based on its ability to hit 3-pointers. Ohio State made 17 of 40 3-pointers, but could not find consistent offense when it did not hit 3s.  When the Buckeyes struggled to connect from deep, they fell behind while Louisville efficiently converted on 36-of-73 shots from the field and made 12-of-20 3-pointers. But when Ohio State hit consecutive triples, it pulled closer to Louisville.Though Louisville led for 38:16 of the game, the Buckeyes constantly remained in striking distance. Ohio State led for just 4:02, but trailed by no more than nine points in the second half.The Cardinals dominated the interior, collecting 47 rebounds while Ohio State grabbed just 29 boards. Of Louisville’s rebounds, 13 came on the offensive glass, which assisted them in putting up 15 second-chance points.Ohio State found an unlikely source of offense in the first half in senior guard Asia Doss, who scored just three points in the season opener.Down 21-13 with less than two minutes remaining in the first quarter, Doss found herself with the ball in her hands and the shot clock winding down. She launched a 3-pointer and swished the long-range shot. Then on the next possession, an open Doss drained her second shot from beyond the arc in a row. Trailing by 13 points in the second quarter, Ohio State seemed in danger of falling behind by a deficit from which it could not recover. But Doss drained another 3-pointer, sparking the Buckeyes. The Buckeyes went on a 14-2 run in the final 3:50 of the half to pull back within one point and went into halftime trailing 41-40. Mitchell punctuated the run when she hit her first shot of the game, a 3-pointer with 33 seconds remaining in the half. She went 5-for-8 from 3-point range in the half and led the team with 17 points. No one else on her team had more than six first-half points. Doss finished with 19 points.Ohio State will be back in action at 7 p.m. Wednesday when the Buckeyes take on Idaho in their first game of the season at the Schottenstein Center. read more

Red zone turnover deficiencies holding back Ohio State offense

OSU redshirt sophomore H-back Jalin Marshall (7) runs with the ball during a game against Indiana on Oct. 3 in Bloomington, Indiana. OSU won, 34-27. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead / Photo EditorOhio State maintained its top ranking in the AP Top 25 Poll for the sixth straight week, but a sluggish start out of the gates has caused the Buckeyes to lose 23 of their 61 first-place votes from the preseason poll. But after getting a chance to review the game tape of the Buckeyes’ 34-27 victory over Indiana on Saturday, OSU coach Urban Meyer saw improvements. The coach was hesitant to use the word “great” to describe where the Buckeyes could be headed “because it’s all relative,” but Meyer said he thinks they might be turning the corner.Meyer said the perimeter blocking was the best it’s been this year, while noting the team played as hard as any time over the past two seasons. “I think we’re on the border of being very good,” he said on Monday. As for why the defending national champions have yet to cross that border to being very good, Meyer pointed to two areas that used to be the team’s strengths: red zone offense and turnovers. The team has put points on the board in just 75 percent of its trips inside the 20-yard line. In 16 tries, the Buckeyes have four field goals and only six touchdowns.OSU made three trips to the red zone against Indiana but came away with a measly six points on two field goals from redshirt senior Jack Willoughby. On their third trip, the Buckeyes found the end zone on a swing pass from redshirt junior quarterback Cardale Jones to junior running back Ezekiel Elliott, but an illegal block negated the score. The next play Jones was sacked, then two plays later a botched snap on third down moved the Buckeyes further back. Willoughby trotted out for his third field goal attempt but missed it. The mistake-ridden trip was a microcosm of the struggles inside the red zone all season long.Left guard Billy Price said he thinks the issues inside the 20-yard line actually stem from the offense’s big play ability. “As we look at our offense, we are a very explosive offense,” the redshirt sophomore said. “Given a confined space, it makes things difficult. It makes it easier for the defense because they don’t have as much ground to cover.”Price said the team needs focus on individual assignments, as well as tightening up its execution, especially for the running game.“We gotta get the running game going, that’s primary. That’s who our offense is. And then the red zone comes second nature to us,” he said. Meyer said the inefficiency inside the 20-yard line boils down to a “variety of problems,” such as turnovers and penalties.Turnovers, however, have been a major factor holding the offense back, even outside the red zone. Following the victory over the Hoosiers, in which the Buckeyes coughed up the ball three times, Meyer said the “turnovers have to change.” Redshirt sophomore Jalin Marshall contributed two fumbles, while Jones threw one interception.Through five games, OSU is minus-four in turnover margin — which places them 101st in the country. In three of five games, the Buckeyes have had multiple turnovers. Tight ends coach Tim Hinton said last week that the team is working on fixing the issues. “We’ve had too many turnovers,” he said. “We’re certainly addressing that very hard.” Meyer is confident that the lack of production in the red zone and turnovers can be corrected as the season progresses. “Those are fixable,” he said. “When you start getting effort and attitude … that’s where red flags start showing up, and I don’t feel that at all. This one has the characteristics of having a great team. Last year’s obviously was a great team, 2012, great team. I didn’t say exceptional skill everywhere, but great team.”  OSU is set to continue Big Ten play on Saturday against Maryland. Kickoff is slated for noon at Ohio Stadium. read more

We want an exit but we want a sustainable exit McGrath calls

first_imgTHE FIANNA FÁIL finance spokesman has criticised the decision not to establish a precautionary credit line for Ireland after the country exits the bailout.Michael McGrath told RTÉ’s The Week In Politics that a post-bailout credit line would provide stability for the country.“We are facing into significant risks.“The ECB announced that they can step in and buy government bonds. That is one of the reasons why our bond yields have stayed benign. Because we haven’t availed of the credit line, we are excluded from that mechanism.We want an exit, but we want a sustainable exit.Communications Minister Pat Rabbitte, however defended the decision.“We, through the NTMA, have funding of up to €20 billion, which is enough to guarantee us for 18,19 or 20 months ahead.”Rabbitte rejected the notion put forward by host Ronán O’Dómhnaill that Ireland was “going to play a round of golf at Augusta without a putter”.I think most of the shots taken by the Government have been pretty good.Read: “Keeping a close watch”: Troika will conduct six-monthly monitoring visits to IrelandRead: Gilmore insists: Bailout exit without credit line was not for political reasonslast_img read more

Iran ready for nuclear talks

first_imgIran has told world powers it is ready to resume talks as soon as possible over its disputed nuclear program, according to a letter obtained today by The Associated Press. It is an offer that could reflect Iran’s difficulty in coping with tough US and European sanctions, or amount to another delaying tactic as it moves ahead with activities that may bring it closer to developing an atomic bomb. The letter from chief Iranian nuclear negotiator Saeed Jalili, was sent last Tuesday, just a day before Iran claimed two major advances in producing nuclear fuel and indicated it was on the verge of imposing an oil embargo on European countries to retaliate for sanctions. The Obama Administration dismissed the announcements as unimpressive and said Tehran’s erratic behaviour was indicative of the squeeze it is feeling. The UN Security Council and Germany, are demanding that Iran freeze all uranium enrichment. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Stuffed animals live it up during library sleepover

first_imgCAMAS — While kids around Camas tossed and turned Wednesday night trying to fall asleep, their stuffed animals partied it up at the Camas Public Library.The pack of bears, dogs and monsters played with bubbles, photocopied their bottoms and finally settled into bed around 3 a.m.“It was a wild, wild night,” said Karen Nicholson, a library associate in Camas.The stuffed animals had a party at the library as part of Camas’ first Stuffed Animal Sleepover. The kids brought their stuffed animals to a special story time event Wednesday afternoon, made name tags for the animals and left them at the library for a night of mischief and fun.It was the first time the library has hosted a sleepover event for stuffed animals, according to Debbie Chevron, a library associate.Like any party in 2018, there was plenty of photographic evidence. Since the stuffed animals didn’t have Instagram, they went retro and developed physical copies of their photos.When the 25 kids who dropped off their stuffed animals for the sleepover came to pick their buddies up Thursday afternoon, Nicholson, Chevron and other library staffers showed the kids the photos to walk them through their stuffed animal’s adventure the previous night.“I think they’re going to sleep tonight,” Chevron told two girls who picked up their Beanie Babies. “They took a nap this morning, because they were really tired.”last_img read more

ASA Presses House Ag Appropriators on MAP and FMD

first_imgThis week, ASA and fellow members of the Coalition to Promote U.S. Agricultural Exports wrote to the House Appropriations Subcommittee on Agriculture, Rural Development, Food and Drug Administration and Related Agencies Chairman Robert Aderholt (R-Ala.) and Ranking Member Sam Farr (D-Calif.) to urge strong support for maintaining funding for the Market Access Program (MAP) and Foreign Market Development (FMD) during the subcommittee’s consideration of the FY 14 Agriculture Appropriations bill.We strongly urge that MAP and FMD be funded at no less than $200 million and $34.5 million respectively for FY 14, which are the current year levels,” wrote the groups. “MAP, which is administered by USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), forms a highly successful partnership between non-profit U.S. agricultural trade associations, farmer cooperatives, non-profit state-regional trade groups, small businesses and USDA to share the costs of international marketing and promotional activities such as consumer promotions, market research, trade shows, and trade servicing. The FMD program benefits U.S. producers, processors, and exporters by assisting their organizations in developing new foreign markets and increasing market share in existing markets. Overseas promotions are targeted toward long term development. MAP and FMD are distinct, separate programs that address different aspects of market development and promotion and are examples of some of the most successful public-private partnerships.”A full transcript of the letter can be viewed by clicking here.last_img read more

The Twilight Zone takes aim at police shootings This is urgent

first_img 3 Tags 50 Photos Share your voice 2019 TV shows you can’t miss Peele did make one suggestion that elevates Replay “from a pretty decent piece of television to something very special.” While Hinds won’t say exactly what Peele’s contribution was, he does say the episode’s final moments bear those Peele fingerprints.The show is famous for gut-punch twist endings, which means even in its hopes and aspirations, Replay is still haunted by the specter of violence. “There are some monsters that go from awake to semi-dormant, but we don’t have the power to slay them right now,” Hinds says. “And we didn’t want to make something that was patently false … There’s no easy magical escape.”  Comments TV and Movies Direct as it is, the episode does strike a balance between tragedy and hope for the future. The young man heading to college, played by Damson Idris, is a filmmaker aspiring to be the next Ryan Coogler — the director behind Creed and Oscar-winning hit Black Panther. Hinds sees Marvel’s black-led Afrofuturist phenomenon as something close to a big bang moment in culture — along with Peele’s hit horror movie Get Out, of course.”There’s a moment in Hollywood where our voice is coming to prominence,” says Hinds, who is from New York via Guyana. “Doors are open in a way that they might not have been before.” Hinds can’t talk much about his upcoming projects, but he is working on adapting Nnedi Okorafor’s Afrofuturist novel Who Fears Death for an HBO series produced by Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin.The Twilight ZoneJordan Peele, mastermind of the new Twilight Zone, Get Out and Us. CBS All Access Hinds also highlights Twilight Zone mastermind Jordan Peele, fresh off the success of Us, as a key player. “Part two of that answer is that there’s just no one like Jordan Peele in the landscape right now,” Hinds says. “He has an energy, agenda and genius to take things to a higher level.”That said, Hinds praises Peele’s hands-off approach while creating Replay. “He was always really respectful,” Hinds says, “and he didn’t want to ‘put his fingerprints all over the episode,’ as he called it.” Entering the Twilight Zone Twilight Zone premiere makes my stand-up comedy nightmares real The Twilight Zone updates for 2019, and it’s as creepy as ever Ever watch the news and get the feeling you’ve seen it before? That’s what inspired Replay, the latest episode of The Twilight Zone, which takes aim at racism and police shootings. It’s a fantasy story, but it’s all too real.Replay is one of two new installments of the rebooted Twilight Zone available to stream starting Thursday, April 11 on CBS All Access. (Disclosure: CBS is CNET’s parent company)In the episode, a black single mother proudly accompanying her son to college discovers her battered camcorder has the power to rewind time. But even that mysterious power may not be enough to prevent tragedy at the hands of a racist white cop. The concept of time repeating itself is familiar from stories like Groundhog Day and Russian Doll, but here it’s used to illustrate the implacable cycle of violence facing African Americans.The episode’s writer, Selwyn Seyfu Hinds, was drawn to this familiar trope when he set out to tackle how police interactions with people of color so often end in tragedy. Hinds watched video after video of encounters between the police and young black men like Philando Castile, Michael Brown, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner — the list of names goes on. “It was a really numbing and horrifying exercise,” Hinds told me on the phone from LA, “and as I watched I got that feeling of time being rewound again and again.”Replay was born.Sanaa Lathan has a magical camcorder but no magic solutions in the Twilight Zone episode Replay. Robert Falconer Science fiction and fantasy have long tackled racism and oppression. But whether it’s mutants in the X-Men stories or alien races in Star Trek and Doctor Who, these themes have usually been couched in metaphorical conflict between fantasy figures. As a black character put it in a famous 1970 Green Lantern comic, “On a planet someplace you helped out the orange skins, and you done considerable for the purple skins! Only there’s skins you never bothered with — the black skins! How come?!”The makers of Replay aren’t interested in dancing around the subject of police brutality. “Right now I could hang up my phone and walk outside in the streets of Los Angeles and find myself in that situation,” says Hinds, himself a person of color. “This is urgent. This is something as a nation we ignore, this horror, and in our own little way I wanted to take a sledgehammer to it.” CBS Filmmakerslast_img read more

Google adds voice and video to Google Talk on Android smartphones

first_img(PhysOrg.com) — Users of Google’s Android OS on their Nexus S smartphones can now smile a little more as their friends will be able to see it; Google has (finally) added video and voice chat as a part of a native Android app. Third party apps that let users video chat on their Android phones (Fring, Qik, etc.) have been around awhile, as has a native app on the iPhone (FaceTime); with this move, Google is finally catching up with everyone else by adding both video and voice to Google Talk; something users have been able to do on their personal computers for quite some time. Although, sadly, the new additions will only be available for Nexus S phones (Nexus One phones don’t have a front facing camera) it will likely create waves in the smartphone market as it offers yet another way for users to communicate with one another using their data network, rather than the cell channel, which means users can talk with other users without using any of their voice minutes. More information: googlemobile.blogspot.com/2011 … r-android-phone.html Citation: Google adds voice and video to Google Talk on Android smartphones (2011, May 2) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-05-google-voice-video-android-smartphones.html Android 2.3 Gingerbread expected in the next few days Explore further © 2010 PhysOrg.com Google announced the update on their blog and says that the updates will happen over the air, over the next few weeks (for 2.3.4 phones; other 2.3+ devices will have to wait for a future update). The new feature will work with both Wi-Fi and 3/4G Wireless networks (upping the stakes for Facetime which only works with Wi-Fi). Once updated, users will find a video or voice chat button next to their contacts on their contacts list. To connect, all they’ll need to do is click the button.Once updated, users of Nexus S phones will be able to video and voice chat as well as text with other Nexus S phone users; they’ll also be able to do the same with those running Google Talk on their PC or with tablet users running Honeycomb. Text messages will be overlaid on the video screen and video can be paused while other apps are run (the audio keeps going).Clearly Google, still the new player in town, is serious about its venture into the smartphone market, and will continue to add functionality to Android as it moves from a follower, to a leader in the field.

according to the CDC. which would impact American and European businesses and citizens, medication has become the first resort for almost any child who is struggling in school Outside of North America medication is usually a last resort Thats especially of concern because of research showing that these medications for ADHD may affect the developing brain in significant ways Here are some questions to ask yourself before your start filling prescriptions for your child: Am I sure my child really has ADHD rather than some other problem which is causing him to be inattentive Not all problems with attention are due to attention-deficit disorder If a child is bored that child wont be paying attention The same is true of a child who is sleep-deprived or depressed Justin isnt paying attention because he has ADHD Jason isnt paying attention because he stays up late playing video games and hes sleep-deprived Jennifer isnt paying attention because she is gifted and the material covered in class is material she mastered two years ago; shes bored A skilled clinician who takes the time to ask the right questions will determine that Justin has ADHD but that Jason and Jennifer do not However I have found that some doctors do only a cursory evaluation look at an automated report and then say "Lets try medication and see whether it helps" Stimulant medications such as Vyvanse and Adderall may be dramatically effective for Jason the sleep-deprived gamer Vyvanse and Adderall are amphetamines powerful stimulants; they will compensate for his sleep deprivation and improve his performance in class But the appropriate remedy is really for Jasons parents to unplug the video games and turn off the lights so he can get some sleep The best treatment for sleep deprivation is sleep not stimulants Has my child had problems in elementary school or did teachers only start talking about attention in middle school ADHD hardly ever emerges after a kid turns 12 Prior to 2013 the official guidelines for the diagnosis of ADHD required significant impairment prior to age 7 The 2013 guidelines changed that to age 12 in part to accommodate the fact that ADHD appears to present in girls later than in boys But ADHD seldom presents in anybody after 12 years of age If your child didnt have a problem in 5th grade but now in 8th grade is having issues there is likely to be some other explanation Maybe its anxiety or depression or sleep deprivation Maybe your son has decided that its uncool for boys to care about school Or your daughter is more concerned about texting and Instagram than about spanish grammar Those are major problems but theyre not ADHD Bottom line: if your child didnt have major problems prior to age 12 then ADHD is probably not the correct diagnosis Is my doctor suggesting we try medication even though he or she is not 100% that ADHD is the problem Its reasonable to prescribe a medication on a "lets try it and see" basis even if the diagnosis is not certain IF the risks of the medication are known to be low But the stimulant medications most often prescribed for ADHDVyvanse Adderall Concerta Metadate Focalin Daytrana and Ritalinhave been linked to damage to the motivational center of the brain This evidence is not conclusive In view of the uncertain risk these medications should be prescribed only as a last resort after other safer alternatives have been tried Am I comfortable with the risks of giving my kid ADHD medication The most serious potential risk is damage to the nucleus accumbens the motivational center of the brain In my own practice I have seen many children and teensmostly boyswho took these medications for a number of years and who seemed to lose their motivation and drive as a consequence (I describe this phenomenon at greater length in chapter 4 of my book Boys Adrift) Is it my child who needs to change or the way he or she is taught In my experience many kids who meet criteria for ADHD can be treated successfully with accommodations in school if the school is understands how to work with these kids Sometimes switching to a different schooloften with a more hands-on experiential approach to learningcan make a big difference reducing or eliminating the need for medication Are we using the safest form of the medication If you and your childs doctor believe that medication is essential start with a safer medication for ADHD such as Strattera Intuniv and Wellbutrin No medication is risk-free but these medications have not been linked to damage to the brain in the way that the stimulant medications have They are much less popular than medications such as Adderall and Vyvanse for two reasons First they may require weeks to months to start working while Adderall and Vyvanse like all amphetamines work on Day 1 Secondly stimulant medications such as Adderall and Vyvanse boost concentration and attention in almost everybody regardless of whether they have ADHD or not; non-stimulants are less likely to be beneficial for kids who dont really have ADHD It’s unlikely that American kids are really 14 times more likely than British kids to have ADHD The differences in prescriptions between the USA and the UK more likely reflect the increased tendency of American doctors to prescribe medication and the increased willingness of American parents to administer those medications to their children But this column is no substitute for the advice of your healthcare professional If your provider recommends medication and you’re convinced it’s the right thing to do then go ahead If you’re not persuaded then ask questions seek a second opinion and read the chapter in my book The Collapse of Parenting titled “Why are so many American kids on medication” Administering powerful medications which affect the developing brain may have serious consequences down the road so it’s worth trying other measures before putting medications into your child’s brain Contact us at editors@timecom IDEAS TIME Ideas hosts the world’s leading voices providing commentary on events in news society and culture We welcome outside contributions Opinions expressed do not necessarily reflect the views of TIME editorsC.” Whedon said in a statement. overhauling diplomatic priorities after nearly a decade and a half of leftist rule. it gets very because people do different jobs, However, taking another major step in the race to commercialize space travel.50,” With reporting by Hazem Balousha / Gaza Correction: An earlier version of this story drew a premature conclusion about the source of the Israeli attack that killed four boys in Gaza.
