Panaji: The Goa State Commission for Protection of Child Rights (GSCPCR) on Wednesday issued a comprehensive set of guidelines for the media to follow while reporting suicides, particularly by children and adolescents.Dr. Sushma Kirtani, chairperson of GSCPCR, in a covering letter attached to the guidelines, said the Commission had taken suo motu note of some recent suicides cases by students which were inappropriately reported in some sections of media. Referring, in particular, to the reportage of a suicide by a student in Bicholim in North Goa on Wednesday, Dr. Kirtani said, “We are very disturbed by such reporting.” The GSCPCR chairperson cautioned that “as per the WHO guidelines, the media is not supposed to report in details such information as it is very detrimental to children reading it. It also can lead to “copy cat suicides” or threatening or blackmailing parents when they try to instil discipline.”Dr. Kirtani who has also been formulating a comprehensive State policy on mental health for children and adolescents with inputs from her own colleagues and from experts, urged the media to do “responsible and sensitive reporting”.

CALGARY, A.B. – The National Energy Board says crude-by-rail exports from Canada rose to a record 327,229 barrels per day in October.That’s up more than 21 percent from 269,829 in September and represents the first time exports by rail have exceeded 300,000 barrels per day _ in October 2017, only 137,000 bpd left the country in railcars.Full export pipelines were blamed for a glut of oil in Western Canada that pressed down a the price for a key benchmark oilsands blend. Western Canadian Select was priced more than US$50 per barrel less that New York benchmark West Texas Intermediate in October.Those differentials have narrowed to around US$15 per barrel since the government of Alberta announced in early December it would impose crude oil production curtailments of 325,000 bpd starting Jan. 1.The province has also promised to buy as many as 80 locomotives and 7,000 rail tankers to help move oil to markets starting in late 2019.Oilsands giant Suncor Energy Inc. warned last week that the tighter differentials have made crude-by-rail shipping “uneconomic.” Analysts estimate it costs about US$20 per barrel to ship Canadian oil by rail to markets on the U.S. Gulf Coast, so differentials that are lower than that make the practise less attractive.
Hejere: The black box from the Boeing jet that crashed and killed all 157 people on board will be sent overseas for analysis but no country has been chosen, an Ethiopian Airlines spokesman said Wednesday, as much of the world grounded or barred the plane model and grieving families arrived at the disaster site. In an interview with The Associated Press, Asrat Begashaw said the airline has “a range of options” for the data and voice records of the flight’s last moments.

An airline official has said one recorder was partially damaged. The Boeing 737 Max 8 aircraft crashed six minutes after takeoff Sunday, killing all 157 people on board. The disaster is the second with a Max 8 plane in just five months. While some aviation experts have warned against drawing conclusions until more information on the latest crash emerges, much of the world, including the entire European Union, has grounded the Boeing jetliner or banned it from their airspace. Ethiopian Airlines, widely seen as Africa’s best-managed airline, grounded its remaining four 737 Max 8s.

Others took action on Wednesday. Lebanon and Kosovo barred the Boeing 737 Max 8 from their airspace, and Norwegian Air Shuttles said it would seek compensation from Boeing after the low-cost carrier grounded its fleet. The US-based Boeing has said it has no reason to pull the popular aircraft from the skies and does not intend to issue new recommendations about the aircraft to customers.
Ajax sporting director Marc Overmars has tipped Barcelona to land in-demand duo Matthijs de Ligt and Frenkie de Jong.De Ligt has been on the radar of Juventus, while De Jong is equally in demand with Barca keen on wrapping up a deal with the parent club.Multiple reports have said the Dutch giants would demand a whopping €140m to part company with their highly-rated star duo.“Barcelona are the favourites, they are a fantastic club,” said Overmars – who used to play at the Camp Nou – as cited by Football Espana.Van Dijk isn’t better than Messi & Ronaldo, says Van der Vaart Andrew Smyth – September 12, 2019 Rafael van der Vaart reckons Virgil van Dijk is “special”, but he’s still behind Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo as the world’s best players.“But there are two other clubs who are also very close and all of Europe is moving, so Barca must do this well.“Can Messi help? Yes, but money is not the important factor for them – last year they turned down betters offers to stay here.“Will my time at Barca help? They already know about the club without the need for me to say.”

Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska LNG Project Team is hosting a community meeting on Wednesday, June 20, at the Nikiski Recreation Center to present the final decision on the Kenai Spur Highway reroute. Jesse Carlstrom Communications Manager with the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation: “The team, at Alaska Gasline Development Corporation, is extremely sensitive to the fact that the Kenai Spur Highway Reroute will impact residents and Alaskans throughout the Kenai and specifically Nikiski area. Nikiski residents will be the very first to know about the selected reroute.” The AGDC in April 2017 provided the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) with a site map of the proposed LNG plant in Nikiski, showing locations for the three liquefaction trains, two LNG storage tanks, material offloading facility and north and south plant entrances. The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m., with an Open House followed by a presentation at 7:00 p.m. Following the site map, the AGDC filed a map of possible alternatives for relocating the Kenai Spur Highway around the LNG plant site to FERC. According to Carlstrom the AGDC has not submitted the final selected route to FERC: “It’s extremely important to us to let residents be the first to know about the selected reroute. So, that’s why we (AGDC) have not submitted this proposed reroute alternative to regulatory agencies, specifically the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that is overseeing the Alaska LNG project, we will let the public know first.”
The University of Georgia has released its annual survey measuring the success of journalism and mass communications majors in finding jobs after graduation. The study found that about three out of four of those with bachelor’s degrees had successfully found employment upon graduation.Just a few months after graduation, on the benchmark date of Oct. 31, the survey found that 56 percent of bachelor’s degree recipients had a full-time job, a slight improvement from 53.3 percent the previous year. This can be compared to 56.6 percent of master’s degree recipients who had a full-time job on the same benchmark date. The success for bachelor’s recipients continued to increase six to eight months after graduation, with 65.6 percent of graduates securing full-time jobs.However, not all of these opportunities were in the field of the respondents’ majors. About 60 percent of bachelor’s degree recipients held jobs in the field of communications six to eight months after graduation, an increase from the previous year.Bachelor’s degree recipients who found full-time work earned an average of $32,000 in 2012, compared to $31,000 a year earlier. This increase was sufficient to offset the effects of a relatively modest inflation. By comparison, master’s degree recipients with full-time jobs earned an average of $40,000 in 2012, the same as in 2011. The study also found that journalism and communications graduates were more successful compared to others in the 20-24 year old age group. Journalism graduates had about a 10 percent unemployment rate, while the unemployment rate of the entire U.S. Labor Force aged 20-24 years old with bachelor’s degrees was about 14 percent.The report stated that about a quarter of the bachelor’s degree recipients said that they regretted studying journalism and communications, similar to the past.More female graduates reported having a full-time job than men in 2012, which has been the case historically. Also, bachelor’s degree recipients of racial and ethnic minority backgrounds had more difficulty finding work than other graduates. This gap has been consistent over time and was nearly the same as the previous year. Those minorities who were able to find a job were much less likely to find one in the field of communications than graduates who were not members of minority groups.
