Are today’s players enacting preventative measures? Have they read the test results of their peers in the previous generations?What are the clubs doing? What is the Rugby League Players Association, the union, doing? Health and safety is paramount. It’s duty of care. It’s about the quality of people’s lives.I do some work for the NRL in a theatre sports program. We go around to clubs and talk about awkward issues: misogyny, depression, suicide, drug use, social media. The league is on the front foot. It’s progressive.And now we need to incorporate brain damage into the conversation. We have to talk about it. We can’t ignore it. And the players, like all of us, have to take responsibility for their own health. Topics Concussion in sport Twitter Read more When the test results came back I was half-expecting negative news. I’d played nearly 250 games of rugby league and been concussed over a dozen times. I wasn’t getting out without a scratch.But “irreversible long-term brain damage”? It hit me right in the guts. Share on WhatsApp comment Pinterest Is your child at risk of brain injury from playing football or rugby? Since you’re here… Share on Facebook Rugby leaguecenter_img Health Share on LinkedIn Facebook For this is what happens when you’re concussed. Your brain is damaged. It is what it is. And it’s the language we have to use when talking about concussion.Fact: every time you’re concussed your brain is damaged. And it’s irreversible. And you need to know that, to hear it. We must have this conversation.Yes, for sure, when a doctor uses so emotive a term as brain damage – or one so medical-sterile as chronic traumatic encephalopathy – there’s a mix of shock and fear that hits you all at once. It’s almost a form of grief – for yourself.But it’s hard to sugar-coat “irreversible scarring on the brain”. It is what it is is. And as a sport, as a country, we need to have the conversation.I first noticed my memory playing up while living in Los Angeles. I’d spent seven years there as one of the lucky few – a working actor. And I’d never had problems with auditions – getting a page of script and getting my lines, I’d always been confident. But five or six years ago I noticed that dialogue just wasn’t going in. I was feeling uncomfortable in auditions. I wasn’t sharp, confident. I knew something was up. Every time you sustain a concussion it’s damage to the brain. It’s brain damage Ex-NFL player confirmed as first case of CTE found in living person – researchers Share on Messenger NRL Share on Twitter Share via Email Australia sport Share on Pinterest And so we were all given a series of tests and tasks, and scanning of the brain. And in all categories of the study the ex-players fared considerably worse. There was one test where you’d take a bunch of different-coloured pegs and plug them into holes in a block of wood. Thirty seconds later you’d take the pegs out and try to plug them back into the same holes. The ex-players came out far worse than the control group.Some of the other footballers, like myself, have a profile. But they’re not willing to go public. And I totally get that. Yet I believe this conversation needs to be had. Players, administrators, parents, kids, everyone in rugby league – in sport – needs to be informed about the long-term affects of repetitive concussion.And we need to call it what it is: brain damage.Yes, the term is confronting. It’s emotive. It’s what happens to people in car accidents, right? Thus it’s a word that resonates. It’s also fact. When you suffer a concussion you suffer brain damage. Calling it head trauma or a head knock, it’s like you’re cushioning the blow, so to speak. But every time you sustain a concussion it’s damage to the brain. It’s brain damage.The National Rugby League and other sporting bodies need to move forward with strategies for prevention. The NRL is making the right noises, and taking small steps. They’re educating themselves. They’re listening to experts. They acknowledge there’s an issue. The data is in: repeated concussion causes long term brain damage. Now, it’s hard to pinpoint a moment of realisation. People ask: “When do you remember forgetting stuff.” How can you answer that? I just knew I wasn’t confident in auditions. Forgetting lines was something I’d never worried about.For a number of reasons, not just my memory, I came back to Sydney three years ago and bumped into Alan Pearce, a professor at La Trobe University and expert in the neurophysiology of sports-related concussion. He was getting a research study together and asked if I’d be one of 25 ex-league players who’d been out of the game for 15-20 years. There would also be a control group of 25 men in the same age bracket who hadn’t played contact sport. Support The Guardianlast_img read more

HMM Inks Deal with Owners on Charter Rates

Bengals sombre tea belt

first_imgThere are about three lakh voters out of nearly five lakh tea workers and their family members residing in more than 276 tea estates in Darjeeling, Jalpaiguri and North Dinajpur in West Bengal. But they are not enthusiastic about casting their vote. A sense of disbelief on the democratic system runs deep in the minds of people whose livelihood comes from the once-thriving Bengal’s distant tea gardens. Even when the tea tribe’s votes are high and political parties are wooing them, in all possible ways, their status remains unchanged. Also Read – A special kind of bondThe idyllic picture-perfect tea gardens with verdant plantations tucked away in state’s northern parts present a picture of neglect, deprivation and poverty. Jupiter Orang, one of the three lakh voters, is unsure if he should vote. “My wife, three children and I live in India, but survive on Bhutan’s water. My wife Nancy walks for miles to enter Bhutan to fetch drinking water. Frankly, we are not bothered who wins or loses as we have little time to think about candidates and governments. We’re too much bothered about our basic minimum daily needs of survival,” says Orang sitting in a room with a tin roof near Bandapani Tea Estate in Jalpaiguri. Also Read – Insider threat managementHe says former tea workers, who were forced to work as daily labourers after the closure of the Bandapani estate due to unrest, look up to Bhutan government to provide them water. Unavailability of drinking water, especially during torrid summer, aggravates their problem. “Last year, we had to give Rs 5,000 to authorities in the neighbouring country to use their water. We’re poor and find it difficult to eke out a living for ourselves, but we had no option. We somehow collected money from family members in the village and gave it to Bhutan authorities,” says Orang. Workers are unsure if they can survive under this financial burden for long. Bandapani garden workers in other gardens, like Carron and Lankapara, also spend a substantial amount of money to get water from Bhutan because there is no facility for drinking water in their areas. Fed up of the way they were treated, Orang’s fellow worker Ramkant Orang migrated to Bhutan to work at a factory. “In India, tea workers are living in sub-human conditions. Management asked us to collect 25 kilogrammes of leaves in eight hours. Earlier, it was 20 kg in eight hours. Again, wage is very less. What will you do with Rs 176 per day? I was forced to leave my home and migrate to Bhutan where working at a factory helps me sustain my family,” says Ramkant. Other than water crisis and poverty, problems that stalk tea gardens are low wages and lack of land rights for workers, whose votes are decisive in three Lok Sabha constituencies in North Bengal. The country’s second largest employer — tea industry — undermines labour rights and deprives workers and their families of the most basic needs. Other glaring problems the voters in nearly 300 tea estates face are malnutrition, human trafficking and starvation deaths. These are certain factors underscoring the desire for a better life. The availability of basic facilities like healthcare and education do not even meet the minimum criterion. Experts believe daily wage is a major bone of contention. “Tea garden workers in North Bengal have been demanding revision of minimum wages. Nearly three lakh workers in North Bengal called a three-day strike in August 2018. Right now, a worker gets a daily wage of Rs 159. After several meetings with the joint forum of trade unions, the West Bengal Labour Department issued a notification saying tea workers will have to be paid at an enhanced rate,” Debu Chaki, who has done research on North Bengal’s tea problems. “The wage rate has to be increased by Rs 10 from September 1, 2018, and by Rs 7 from October 1, 2018, which means, the new wage will be Rs 176 per day. This is an interim measure to help the workers until the minimum wage rate is finalised, says the government order. But in reality, the wage issue still persists as many workers are getting less than the amount,” adds Chaki. Anadi Sahu, general secretary of Centre of Indian Trade Unions, feels the condition of tea workers is getting worse by the day. “Tea workers are beset with a host of problems and the state government and Centre have turned a blind eye to their plight. We’ve raised the issue of their minimum wages, lack of livelihood and lack of sanitation, but to no avail,” says Sahu. He further questions the intent of the West Bengal government regarding minimum wage of tea workers. “A tea worker in Bengal struggles to get Rs 176. But think of Assam, where a tea worker gets Rs 350 for the same work. Centre’s 7th Pay Commission also recommended at least Rs 18,000 for such tea workers, but the recommendations have not been implemented yet,” adds Sahu. Another problem that stalks the gardens is human trafficking. “About 80 per cent of migrants from tea gardens are unsafe. Trafficking agents get Rs 40,000-50,000 per person,” says Binu Rai, an activist in the region. There are agents who lure unemployed tea workers with job promises. “First, they travel to Delhi, from where they fly to Saudi Arabia. Women, who get jobs as domestic help, are abused in foreign countries. In the past two years, only a few women were able to return and some of them came back with communicable diseases,” adds Rai. Speaking about the main reason behind the closure of tea gardens and financial condition of tea workers, secretary of Tea Association of India in Dooars, Ram Avtar Sharma, says, “Most of the tea estates are running in losses. India produces high-quality tea and a good amount of tea is exported to foreign countries, but we’re losing out to China, Kenya and Sri Lanka as they sell tea at a cheaper rate. Tea production has become costly and the profit margin is very less.” (The author is a journalist. The views expressed are strictly personal)last_img read more

Paris Attack When Acts of Terror hurt Muslims the Most

By Majid MorceliSan Francisco – What happened today in Paris is not only an attack on the cartoonists who paid dearly for what they chose to draw in the name of freedom of expression, it is an attack on you, me and all of us Muslims. Anytime someone claiming to be a Muslim hurts a non-Muslim in the name of Islam, the rest of us Muslims suffer the consequences of their heinous acts.Muslims suffer after each terrorist act that takes place in the western world. All of a sudden we find ourselves feeling guilty for what the terrorist has done, and even worse are the long-lasting feelings that the acts of terror engender. This morning I find myself trying to read my colleagues’ minds in the hopes of discovering whether they are thinking about what happened in France and relating it to me. The majority of the western world is not going to discern between you, the terrorist, and me. In their eyes, Islam is the culprit and it is a religion that encourages the killing of the innocent. Even when acts of terror are committed by non-Muslims, Muslims are always the first ones to be singled out and targeted with hate crimes; North Africans in France will have a hard time in the coming days and weeks. Islam phobia is now very rampant in France; far right groups are depending on the frustration of the French people and winning in the polls, to the point that many are calling for the deportation of all Muslims. Let’s hope that the French people and authorities understand that what happened is the act of the terrorists and the terrorists only.One other major effect of these acts on Muslims is how it devalues Muslim lives in the eyes of Westerners. Take Syria for example. More than a quarter million Syrians have been killed in the last three years and the world is going about its business as if nothing happened. Hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have been killed, and again, no one cares, to the point that the media no longer reports on these tragedies, and treats them as something common in the Muslim world. When something is common, it is no longer considered newsworthy.Leaders all around the world are refusing to give in to terrorism, and we as Muslims must follow their lead; if we do not,  the extremists have already won. If I were one of those leaders, I would also ask the French people not to resort to vengeance and not to take their anger out on innocent Muslims.As a matter of fact, the French people are now in a position to show, not only the terrorists, but the whole world, that they will not use terror tactics and hurt innocent Muslims and their properties, but that instead they should treat Muslims with kindness and understanding and dash the terrorists’ hopes of creating mayhem. Doing so will ameliorate relations between Muslims and non-Muslims in France as well as in countries all over the world.; it would be making something good out of something evil.The views expressed in this article are the author’s own and do not necessarily reflect Morocco World News’ editorial policy© Morocco World News.

Brock students give back to community during Reading Week

Brock student Peng (Jason) Xin spent his reading week helping Habitat for Humanity in Niagara. Not all Brock University students spent Reading Week on a beach, soaking up the sun.Some 50 Brock students participated each day in Alternative Reading Week – Niagara, which had some sticking around close to home or volunteering abroad in South Carolina, the Dominican Republic and El Salvador.Alternative Reading Week – Niagara is the local component of the overarching Alternative Reading Week program. It’s run by Student Life and Community Experience and volunteer projects took place at a variety of service agencies and organizations in Niagara and internationally, said Sandy Howe, Brock’s service learning co-ordinator.“The goal of Alternative Reading Week was to provide an opportunity for Brock students to give back to their community and make a difference,” Howe said.The students were involved in everything from cleaning and organizing at the Alzheimer Society of Niagara and cataloguing historical items at Morningstar Mill to creating unique home renovation items and putting together donated items at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.Some painted rooms at the Beamsville branch of Community Living while others created activities for the Learning Disabilities Association of Niagara to use in their programming.The students are from all academic programs, including graduate and undergraduate students.Howe outlined what the University hopes students gain from the week’s experience:• Be able to identify at least one issue facing the community they volunteer in and gain understanding of the issue• Develop new connections with fellow students, staff and/or community partners• Learn about their own skills, strengths and weaknesses through working with others• Develop critical thinking skills through self and group reflection• Be able to identify and pursue involvement opportunities in the Niagara community.A celebratory dinner and reflection session was held at the end of the week for students to discuss the highlights of volunteering locally and what they learned from the experience.Students who worked internationally will gather Saturday, March 2. Their trips took them to South Carolina to do a build with Habitat for Humanity, the Dominican Republic to teach English and work in a community in need, and El Salvador to work with Habitat for Humanity. read more

SNK release Neo Geo CD controller for PS3

first_imgAs a kid, the Neo Geo consoles were a wish list item for me. With the machine and the games costing hundreds of dollars each they were never going to be within reach, but I still coveted them. Jump forward to 2010 and while the hardware may be dead, the games are available for just a few dollars each.Earlier this month SNK Playmore announced Neo Geo Station for the PlayStation Network. On December 21 it will offer up 10 classic Neo Geo games to download and play on your PS3, including:AdChoices广告Fatal FuryAlpha Mission IIThe King of Fighters ’94Samurai ShodownBaseball Stars ProfessionalMagician LordMetal SlugLeague BowlingSuper SidekicksArt of FightingWe didn’t think that news could get any better, but it can.As well as releasing the games, SNK has decided to update the game controller which originally shipped with the Neo Geo CD. It’s no fighting stick, but makes for a great controller for playing these retro titles. It has been updated to include a PS button, and now connects via USB, making it usable for more than just these games.The bad news is this is a Japan-only release. The good news is Play-Asia has it available for everyone else if you’re willing to pay the $44.90 price tag. We think it may be worth it just to play these SNK games with an SNK pad.Here’s Play-Asia’s description of why you want to own it:Licensed by Sony Entertainment System, the SNK NEO GEO Controllers are manufactured for the fighters. It works especially well on games such as King of Fighters XII and all sorts adrenaline pumping action. As a special feature, you can change POVs by moving it along the X and Y axis with a lever.Unleashing skills become easier with the special button layout and the digital controller reacts so much faster to your commands, making your fight far smoother than usual. A PlayStation Network Card with enough cash to buy all the Neo Geo Station games, wrapped up with this controller, would make some of the older gamers among us very happy this Christmas. But then again, so would the actual Neo Geo CD hardware and some original games.Read more at Albotaslast_img read more

Gourd time for pumpkin pickers at harvest festival in Brush Prairie

first_imgBRUSH PRAIRIE — The lines were long and parking lots packed at Bi-Zi Farms in Brush Prairie over the weekend, as thousands coursed through the family farm to grab pumpkins for carving before real fall weather sets in.The event only seems to get bigger, proprietor Bill Zimmerman said Sunday afternoon.The farm holds its annual harvest festival the last weekend of September and each weekend in October, he said, and even with construction along Northeast 119th Street in front of the farm, he expected to see about 40,000 guests this year.“We’ve been really shocked. We’ve been really surprised,” he said. “We didn’t expect quite as big a crowd.”Kids clambered over the pyramid of hay bales and families washed then loaded wheelbarrows with pumpkins for carving.Others tried launching pumpkins into barrels with the farm’s giant slingshots, rolled around in a giant corn kernel bin play area, pumped water spouts to race floating toys in gutters, practiced lassoing hay bales, communed with farm animals and rode around atop big bouncing balls.The latter, “Hippity Hop Races” are a new addition, Zimmerman said.“A friend of ours that’s helping out, she’s bound and determined to get pictures of every one of us on the hippity hop balls,” he said, laughing at the image of himself and his family, many of whom help out with the event, bounding around on kids toys.Beyond all the fun and games, Zimmerman said he expected the farm, with its 26 acres of pumpkins, produces an easy 100,000 pumpkins, including the small ones meant for the launchers.last_img read more

Forget joining The Kapil Sharma Show Sunil Grover says he doesnt even

first_imgSunil Grover and Kapil SharmaTwitterIt was reported that Salman Khan had been trying to mend a broken friendship between Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover and suggested his Bharat co-star to join The Kapil Sharma Show. Even Kapil had said in his earlier interviews that the show’s doors are always open for Sunil whenever he wishes to come back but it looks like Sunil is still holding a grudge against Kapil.During his recent interaction with the media, Sunil said that he doesn’t even watch The Kapil Sharma Show adding that he does not watch shows which he does not feature in. He also said that Salman had indeed spoke to him about joining the show but stressed that it was just a suggestion and the Dabangg star never forced him to take a step towards it.The ugly war between friends-turned-foes – Kapil Sharma and Sunil Grover – is no secret to anyone. The two comedians fell apart after their infamous mid-air brawl in 2017 and they decided to go separate ways.However, reports have been doing the rounds that Salman is likely to bring Sunil along with him on The Kapil Sharma Show to promote their upcoming film Bharat in June.Earlier, Kapil had spoken about Sunil’s return to The Kapil Sharma Show and said that he had met him and had discussed the concept of the show with him. He also said that as soon as Sunil gets away with his commitments, he will join the show.It now remains to be seen how Kapil and Sunil will react when they will be brought face-to-face with one another on the show.last_img read more

Poll Most Say Sex Misconduct Victims Are Underprotected

first_img Share Photo via Wikimedia CommonsMost Americans say sexual misconduct is a major problem and that too little is being done to protect victims, according to a new poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research. But some — particularly Republican men — are concerned about the rights of the accused.The sheer speed with which an accusation of sexual misconduct can sink a career rattles some men, and not just Republicans. Bart Cassida, a 40-year-old Democrat from Indiana, said he tends to believe the accusers. But he’s concerned about employers “immediately dismissing people without proper investigation.”“People think that men don’t mind being that kind of guy,” someone physically assertive with women, said Dan Lee, 65, a Palm Springs, California, Democrat who retired after a four-decade career in computer science. “I think that’s wrong … men are concerned with their reputations.”The poll shows that nearly 6 in 10 Americans think there is too little protection for the rights of people who have been victims of workplace sexual misconduct. By contrast, just 37 percent think there’s too little protection for people accused of sexual misconduct, 35 percent think there’s the right amount and 26 percent think there’s too much.Majorities of women of all political persuasions, as well as male Democrats and independents, think too little is done to protect victims, but only about a third of male Republicans think the same. Among Republican men, by contrast, 52 percent think there are too few protections for the accused. Just 33 percent of Democratic men and 39 percent of Republican women think that’s the case.Whether there’s a balance to be struck between protections for accusers and the rights of those accused of sexual misconduct is part of America’s reckoning with the problem. Women and some men have come forward in recent months with allegations credible enough to topple titans of entertainment, news, and members of Congress — often with blinding speed. Just what is an unwelcome sexual advance, and whether there should be life-altering consequences for what some might see as just a dumb remark, have ignited ferocious exchanges across U.S. society.“On that side of it someone should have a chance to defend themselves,” said Cedar Rapids, Iowa, resident Emily Hass, 40, who says she’s confronted two people who harassed her. She’s among the 56 percent of Americans who think harassment is a major problem in U.S. workplaces. “Absolutely. I think we don’t even know the half of it.”A third of working Americans say sexual misconduct is a very serious problem in their own workplace, a feeling most common among women, minorities and lower-income Americans. Three in 10 women and 1 in 10 men say that they’ve personally experienced sexual misconduct at work.The tense discussion goes to the pinnacle of American government. Americans elected President Donald Trump even after they heard a recording of him boasting of groping women and knew he stood accused of assaulting or harassing more than a dozen women. He has denied any wrongdoing and has vowed to sue his accusers. Nearly a year into his presidency, that hasn’t happened.Misconduct allegations have been made against several members of Congress, including Sen. Al Franken, who plans to step down due to sexual assault accusations.Allegations of sexual misconduct, many of them denied, have forced a reconsideration of lifetimes of work by accused men, such as former President Bill Clinton, actor Kevin Spacey and Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein. And voters in overwhelmingly Republican Alabama on Dec. 12 elected a Democrat, Doug Jones, to the Senate for the first time in a quarter century. The Republican candidate, Roy Moore, stood accused of sexual misconduct with teenage girls while he was in his 30s. Moore denied the charges. Trump endorsed Moore.The poll shows that majorities of Americans think broad sectors of society are not doing enough to prevent sexual misconduct, including institutions including the entertainment industry, colleges and universities, state and federal governments, the military and the news media.The sweeping nature of the national reckoning shows no sign of being resolved soon, the poll found.Overall, two-thirds think sexual misconduct happens in most or even all workplaces and more than 8 in 10 say false accusations happen at least some of the time.And while a third of women worry at least somewhat about being victims, an equal percentage of men worry at least somewhat about being falsely accused.The abrupt firing of NBC’s Matt Lauer from the helm of the “Today” show this month rattled Cassida.“By the time I had heard about it, he had already been let go. And I kind of went, whoa,” said the Greencastle, Indiana, high school math teacher, a Democrat. NBC officials said they had identified a pattern of troubling behavior before giving Lauer the ax.Lee worries that the privacy of accusers is protected more than the names of the accused. “You always heard rumors about who was being accused. But you never heard who was doing the accusing.”Still the poll finds many hope the attention given to sexual misconduct will make a positive difference. Most Americans — 55 percent — think the spate of recent high-profile cases will result in change for the better for women.___The AP-NORC poll surveyed 1,020 adults from Dec. 7-11 using a sample drawn from NORC’s probability-based AmeriSpeak panel, which is designed to be representative of the U.S. population. The margin of sampling error for all respondents is plus or minus 4.3 percentage points.last_img read more
