Houston, Jun 27 (PTI) Parents in the US are generally not as happy as those without kids due to relative lack of workplace policies such as paid sick time, flexible work hours, paid vacation and parental leave, according to a new report.The US also has the largest “happiness gap” among parents compared to non-parents in 22 industrialised countries, researchers said.”The US, without any standard paid leave available to mothers or parents – or any standard vacation or sick leave to support raising a dependent child – falls strikingly behind all the other countries we examined in terms of providing for parents happiness and overall well-being,” said Matthew Andersson from Baylor University in the US.Parents are generally not happy in the US because of the relative lack of workplace “packages” of policies such as paid sick time, paid vacation, flexible work hours and paid maternal or parental leave, he said.In countries in which such policies are mandated by the government or industry, a smaller gap exists between parents and non-parents, researchers said.”In fact, in those places, parents might be slightly happier,” said Andersson.While some critics say that good family support policies come at the expense of non-parents, they actually improved happiness of everyone in the country, “with an extra happiness bonus for parents of minor children,” the report said.The same was true of subsidised child care, which might be assumed to only benefit parents, it said.”Another striking finding was that giving money to parents in child allowances or monthly payments had less effect on parental happiness that giving them the tools – such as flexible work time – to combine employment with parenting,” the report said.advertisementBesides gathering policy information of the countries, researchers took into account each countrys gross domestic product and fertility rate to ensure the findings did not simply reflect economic status.They tested a number of hypotheses, among them whether more unexpected births and larger families might be associated with parents being less happy than non-parents. But those factors were relatively unimportant, the study showed.The research also found that Americans are not generally an unhappy people. On a scale from 1 to 10, they hover in the 8 to 10 range, compared with, for example, France, where people tend to rate their levels from 5 to 7.The findings appear in the American Journal of Sociology.

zoom Japanese Sojitz Corporation has acquired Spanish First State Regasificadora (FSR), changing the company’s name to Sojitz Regasificadora (SR).SR owns a 15% stake in Regasificadora del Noroeste (Reganosa), whose assets include the LNG terminal located in Mugardos in the northwest of Spain. With this move, Sojitz is making its entry into the LNG terminal business in Europe.Reganosa commenced operations at the Mugardos LNG Terminal in 2007. LNG delivered to the Mugardos LNG Terminal is not only supplied to the domestic market in Spain but also reloaded and delivered to Asia as well as other parts of the world. Reganosa also has plans to use the terminal as an LNG bunkering station for ships using LNG as marine fuel, Sojitz explained.“Sojitz will contribute its LNG expertise and other businesses experience … to support the further development of the Mugardos LNG Terminal,” the company said in a statement.Involved in LNG business in Japan, Sojitz also has investments in Indonesia and Qatar.“Sojitz will continue to develop its global LNG business with a focus on LNG receiving and liquefaction terminals, and will look at expanding its LNG receiving terminal business into ASEAN and other countries in South Asia, and to also develop its LNG liquefaction business to help create a stable energy supply for Japan,” the company added.
FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The Fort St. John Hospital Foundation announced today that it broke the $1 million mark for donations in the last fiscal year.In a release today, the Foundation also said that has $2 Million dollars in its endowment account, and has committed over $300,000 to equipment purchased in the Fort St John Hospital and Peace Villa this morning. Taking the state of the local economy into consideration last April, the Foundation said it had set a goal of raising $650,000 during the 2017/18 fiscal year.“The overwhelming support and generosity of this community in supporting the needs of all of it’s citizens is humbling,” said Executive Director Jennifer Moore. The Foundation received 2,500 donations between April 1st, 2017 and March 31st. In November, the ‘Be an Angel’ campaign exceeded it’s target by over $65,000. Last year also saw the establishment of two new named endowments: Edmondo and Giovanna Mucci and Evelyn Hadland, targeting donations for seven new electric dialysis chairs.Over $309,000 was also committed by the Foundation last year for equipment purchases at the Fort St. John Hospital and Peace Villa. New ICU beds, electric dialysis chairs, cataract pre-screening equipment, specialized mattresses and a new ventilator were among the teams purchased.
The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) today asked donors for $856 million to assist children and women who are victims of emergencies, ranging from the conflicts in Chad and Kenya to flood-hit areas such as Mozambique.Launching its Humanitarian Action Report 2008 in Geneva today, the agency said the funds will be used to provide urgent assistance in health, education and nutrition.In Kenya, some 150,000 children are among the 300,000 people who were forced from their homes, while in Chad, an estimated 30,000 of the 52,000 who have been driven from the country are vulnerable and urgently need help.“In both these conflicts, and in the 37 other crises described in this report, children and women continue to bear the brunt of conflict and displacement,” UNICEF Deputy Executive Director Hilde Johnson told a press briefing in Geneva.Funding is also being sought for humanitarian activities in Sudan, especially the strife-torn Darfur region, home to 2.1 million internally displaced persons (IDPs). UNICEF-supported programmes in Sudan, totalling over $150 million, aim to boost health, nutrition and education, increase access to safe water and sanitation, and promote child protection and mine action. In West Africa, nearly 1 million people are currently displaced by conflict and young children face the risk of under-nutrition. In the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC), more than half of the deaths of young children are attributed to malnutrition. UNICEF is requesting $106 million to help Congolese children.“We must make sure that children and women are protected as much as possible from these atrocities, and that those responsible for these crimes are eventually brought to justice,” Ms. Johnson stressed. Last year, thanks to an increase in the contributions received from new funding mechanisms such as the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF), 52 per cent of UNICEF’s requested emergency funds were received. The agency today said it hopes donors and other partners will help increase the efficiency of disaster preparedness and response. Steve Adkisson, who represented UNICEF in Chad from 2004 to 2007, said financing up front can save costs in the long run. “If the funding does not come in a consistent and timely manner, goods need to be delivered by air rather than by road,” he noted. And each time that happens, “more funding goes to the delivery of the goods.” 12 February 2008The United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) today asked donors for $856 million to assist children and women who are victims of emergencies, ranging from the conflicts in Chad and Kenya to flood-hit areas such as Mozambique.
Walter Kälin, the Secretary-General’s Representative on the Human Rights of Internally Displaced Persons (IDPs), issued a statement at the end of a four-day trip to Georgia in which he expressed particular concern about the lack of protection of civilians living in the “buffer zone” between the breakaway region of South Ossetia and the rest of the country.“The continuing lack of effective protection of the population against violence committed by armed elements and widespread looting of property in the buffer zone north of [the town of] Gori is unacceptable and should cease immediately,” he said.Mr. Kälin said he was alarmed by the descriptions he heard during meetings with IDPs and others about the climate of fear in many areas since the conflict erupted in early August.An estimated 192,000 people were uprooted from their homes in the Caucasus country by the fighting between forces from Georgia, Russia and South Ossetia.In today’s statement Mr. Kälin urged that law and order in the buffer zone be restored immediately and he also called for the deadlines for the withdrawal of Russian troops to be respected.“The need for a stronger humanitarian presence and for ensuring continuous protection monitoring in those areas is urgent and the deployment of the European Union (EU) Monitoring Mission is a welcome first step.”The Representative deplored the lack of unimpeded humanitarian access to Tskhinvali and other conflict-affected areas, and he called on all sides to grant full access to aid workers as soon as possible.But he welcomed what he called the Georgian Government’s prompt response to the massive displacement as a result of the fighting, including its construction of new homes for people unlikely to be able to return in the near future.He also noted Tbilisi’s plans to find durable solutions for all IDPs, including those – estimated at around 200,000 – who have been away from their homes since conflict in the early 1990s.“I welcome the recognition by the authorities that local integration in the areas they have fled to and safeguarding their right to return are not mutually exclusive,” he said, adding that immediate humanitarian needs are also of concern given the coming winter in the region.During this visit Mr. Kälin visited Tbilisi, Gori and the buffer zone to the immediate north, and held high-level talks with Georgian Government officials. He said he hopes to visit Tskhinvali and surrounding areas on a separate trip in the near future.Mr. Kälin has served in an independent and unpaid capacity as the Secretary-General’s Representative on this issue since 2004, and he reports to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva. 4 October 2008Effective security is the key to ensuring the return home of tens of thousands of people displaced by the recent conflict in Georgia, a United Nations human rights expert said today, warning about the ongoing climate of fear faced by civilians in the region.

One hundred people claim to be miraculously healed there every year.But the church, which never formally encourages the devotional use of water, has only certified 70 miracles.Now 71, Mr Stepan is returning to Lourdes to see if his miracle will be verified by The International Medical Committee of Lourdes, comprised of 30 doctors.Before a miracle is confirmed, the original diagnosis must be proven to be incurable before the doctors can say if the patient’s cure was unexplained.The committee is due to announce the outcome of Stepan’s case in October.

The trade in religious items and Lourdes water has flourished since apparitions of the Virgin Mary were first reported in the 19th century. A British man who believes that Lourdes holy water cured his cancer is to have his claims tested by a board of doctors in an upcoming Songs of Praise episode.Kazik Stepan feared his life was over after he was diagnosed with an inoperable tumour on his spinal cord when he was just 18 years old.However, he claims to have experienced a miracle after he bathed in the sacred water at Lourdes, which enabled him to walk for the first time in months because of its reported healing properties.He was granted the “present of life” on the 8th of September, celebrated by Catholics as the birthday of The Virgin Mary, in 1965, following a long pilgrimage he was not expected to survive. Mr Stepan, from Kent, was one of millions who visited the Roman Catholic pilgrimage site, located in the foothills of the Pyrenees mountains in South-western France, to cure their physical ailments.The Virgin Mary is said to have urged Saint Bernadette of Lourdes to drink and bathe in water from a spring in the Grotto of Massabielle.

Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Whales are a precious aspect throughout Greek mythology, and today, people from Athens to Adelaide have been protesting as part of Worldwide Anti-Whaling Day.As a culture, we love the beach, we love going to the beach, and we don’t want to see that threatened. Speaking ahead of the event, organiser Mary Verikios said she was expecting at least 50 Greek Australians to turn up in Melbourne to protest “the cruel and unnecessary slaughter of whales”. “As a culture, we love the beach, we love going to the beach, and we don’t want to see that threatened,” she said. The Worldwide Anti-Whaling Day website lists protests in over 50 cities worldwide, including Melbourne, Sydney, Adelaide, Canberra, Perth, Brisbane and Athens. The use of social networking sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, have seen the word of these protests spread with rapid speed. “People are so passionate, and the news of these protests has travelled very fast,” Ms Verikios said. She said if whaling were to continue at current levels, it would have detrimental effects to not just whales, but other sea life. “In 25 years’ time, we won’t have squid, can you imagine that?” she asked. In 2007, the Greek government were one of several new signatories to the International Whaling Convention. Earlier this year, the Australian government decided to take legal action against Japan over its whale hunting. Ms Verikios said this was a positive step, but that communities needed to continue to demand waters be protected, and whale sanctuaries to be put in place. “Legal action could take years to achieve an outcome, but in the meantime, 1000 whales are being slaughtered,” she said. Ms Verikios said she expected hundreds of “ordinary Australians” to turn up to the demonstrations. “I’m really not a rallying kind of person,” she said. “I just really love the sea.”

By Jacques Billeaud, The Associated PressA neo-Nazi was convicted Jan. 9 of murder and other charges for trying to kill a Black man and fatally shooting the man’s White girlfriend after a 2009 dispute at a Phoenix park.The guilty verdicts mean jurors will decide whether 37-year-old Travis Ricci should face life in prison or the death penalty in the killing of Kelly Ann Jaeger.This undated file photo provided by the Arizona Department of Corrections shows Travis Ricci, who was convicted Jan. 9 of murder and other charges for trying to kill a Black man and fatally shooting the man’s White girlfriend after a 2009 dispute at a Phoenix park. (Arizona Department of Corrections via AP, File)Investigators say Ricci yelled racial slurs at Jaeger’s boyfriend, Jeffery Wellmaker, as the couple walked in a park and harassed him about dating a White woman.They said Ricci left to get a shotgun and returned, firing from a car as the couple stood near a pay phone. Authorities say Ricci intended to shoot Wellmaker but instead struck Jaeger.Ricci, whose Nazi and White-power tattoos were covered by a dress shirt, reacted to the verdict by momentarily closing his eyes and lowering his head.In seeking the death penalty, prosecutors have said the killing was meant to further the interests of the Vinlanders Social Club, a neo-Nazi group with a reputation for violence. Lawyers for Ricci have said his client wasn’t a member of the Vinlanders.Before the penalty phase of the murder trial can begin, Ricci will be tried by the same jury on a charge of misconduct involving weapons.The attack occurred after Ricci left a friend’s home angry and drunk, making his way into the neighborhood where he eventually noticed Jaeger and Wellmaker, according to a police report.Prosecutors say a shirtless Ricci directed a racial slur at Wellmaker and yelled, “‘What are you doing with a White girl?’”He also told Wellmaker he was going to get “‘something for him,’” prosecutors have said.They said Ricci left to get a shotgun from his home, falsely told people there that he saw a Black man hitting a White woman and returned to the area in a sedan driven by an associate.Jaeger and Wellmaker were near a pay phone when the sedan pulled up. Ricci fired two shells, hitting Jaeger in the stomach from about 10 feet (3 meters) away, prosecutors have said.Ricci’s attorneys have noted Wellmaker was unable to identify Ricci in a photo lineup after the shooting.While working with a police artist after the shooting, Wellmaker described a unique tattoo across the attacker’s stomach, a judge wrote earlier in the case. Ricci has a large tattoo across his belly.Defense lawyers have noted that nearly two years after the attack, Wellmaker was jailed in an unrelated case and played chess with Ricci behind bars without recognizing him. Wellmaker has also acknowledged smoking marijuana earlier on the morning of the shooting.In an unrelated crime months after Jaeger’s shooting death, police say Ricci stabbed two men who tried to stop him from attacking his girlfriend. He is serving a 22-year sentence for assault and weapons misconduct convictions.Aaron Levi Schmidt, who authorities say was driving the car used in the attack on Jaeger and Wellmaker, has pleaded guilty to murder in Jaeger’s death.
