For whom to develop tourism if not for the local economy and the local population, which must directly benefit from it. Also, as there are large crowds in the city during the summer months due to the arrival of tourists, the quality of life of the local population is much lower.

Mexico’s Cancun braced for possibly ‘catastrophic’ Hurricane Delta

by ,

first_imgMexicans formed long lines at supermarkets near Cancun on Tuesday to stock up in preparation for a forecast hit overnight from powerful Hurricane Delta, while the resort ordered hotels evacuated on its famed Caribbean shoreline.The Category 4 hurricane on the five-step Saffir-Simpson scale of intensity was about 215 miles (345 km) east of Cozumel off the Mexican coast, packing maximum sustained winds of 140 miles per hour (220 kph), the US National Hurricane Center (NHC) said.”In the Yucatan Peninsula, potentially catastrophic hurricane conditions are expected in portions of the warning area late tonight and early Wednesday,” the NHC said. Expectations of tropical storm conditions led to evacuations of coastal areas in Cuba. Delta is forecast to weaken and linger over Mexico’s Yucatan peninsula before strengthening again in the Gulf of Mexico, where oil companies were bracing for impact on their installations and ports closed.Officials ordered evacuations of Cancun’s hotel zone and other coastal areas, and opened the city’s convention center as a shelter. Workers at the Avis car rental firm boarded up windows with wood under a light rain on Tuesday afternoon.The governor of Quintana Roo state urged residents near the shore to evacuate, while recommending health precautions in shelters due to the COVID-19 pandemic.”We have to prevent COVID-19 in these sites, we have to take all preventative measures to this effect,” Governor Carlos Joaquin said, noting that the hurricane could take 12 hours to pass through the state after touching down by 2 a.m. Joaquin recommended households stock up on food and water for two or three days, anticipating delays in restoring water and electricity.A hurricane watch was in place for an area stretching from the beach town of Tulum, west past Cancun, and including Cozumel, an island made famous by Jacques Cousteau for the quality of its reef scuba diving.Since Monday, local residents have formed long lines at supermarkets and construction stores to load up on food and supplies to protect their homes, television images showed.”Panic buying” left some shelves empty of basic pantry goods, said Marian Castro, who lives in Cancun’s hotel zone and recalls the destruction wrought by Category 5 Hurricane Wilma in 2005.”I’m not scared, because after Hurricane Wilma … destroyed my house, this time we’re more prepared,” she said, pointing out her anti-cyclone windows.Water levels could rise by as much as 9 feet (3 m) over normal tide levels near Delta’s landfall, accompanied by dangerous waves in the hurricane warning area.The Yucatan peninsula was hit on the weekend by Hurricane Gamma, a smaller storm that nonetheless damaged property and forced restaurants and attractions to close, including the famed Chichen Itza pyramids.The region at the heart of Mexico’s tourist industry has suffered various setbacks in recent years, most recently from the coronavirus pandemic’s impact on tourism.Before that, the coast known as the Riviera Maya was affected by swaths of Sargasso seaweed on its pristine beaches.Cuba’s western province of Pinar del Rio and the Island of Youth also hunkered down ahead of tropical storm conditions, with schools closed and coastal areas evacuated.center_img Topics :last_img read more

PAHO says wider access to ultrasound saves maternal lives in the Caribbean

HealthLifestyleNewsRegional PAHO says wider access to ultrasound saves maternal lives in the Caribbean by: Caribbean Media Corporation – November 2, 2015 Sharecenter_img Share Share WASHINGTON, DC, United States (CMC) – The Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) says better access to ultrasound and other radiology services can reduce maternal and neonatal deaths across the Americas, including the Caribbean.“Obstetric ultrasound is instrumental in identifying potential risks to mother and child, and interventional radiology makes child birth safer for some women by managing postpartum haemorrhage,” said Dr Pablo Jimenez, PAHO Regional Advisor in Radiological Health.“But the full potential of these radiological techniques have yet to be realized in our region,” he said, stressing the importance of “strengthening health systems to make life-saving radiology services more widely accessible.”On average, PAHO said 16 women die every day in Latin America and the Caribbean from complications of pregnancy or childbirth, while 250 babies die each day before having reached 28 days of age.PAHO said many of the complications, including foetal mal presentation, multiple gestations, ectopic pregnancy and placentaprevia, can be managed with early diagnosis starting with ultrasound imaging.Interventional radiology techniques such as embolization, in which radiological images are used to guide a catheter into the body to stop internal bleeding without open surgery, can play a major role in reducing deaths from postpartum haemorrhage, PAHO said.Overall, it said an estimated 8.2 per cent of mothers who give birth in Latin America and the Caribbean suffer from a severe postpartum haemorrhage that requires transfusion.PAHO said while pregnant women in high-income countries usually receive early and advanced prenatal care, including radiology services, “those services are lacking in many parts of Latin America and the Caribbean.“And where the services are offered, they are often of questionable quality,” PAHO said, noting that in some cases the radiographers are poorly trained to use equipment; while, in other cases, the technology either doesn’t work or has not been properly maintained.“Ultrasound equipment is relatively affordable, portable and, when operated by trained professionals, completely safe and accurate,” Jimenez said.“But radiology requires well trained professionals with extensive knowledge in the acquisition and interpretation of images coupled with the implementation of quality control and assurance programs to ensure a reliable and accurate diagnosis. Our goal is to make that level of care much more widely available.”PAHO said while maternal mortality declined 43 per cent in Latin America and 30 percent in the Caribbean between 1990 and 2010, “this progress was not sufficient to achieve the 75 per cent reduction by 2015 called for in the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).”To help countries accelerate reductions in maternal mortality, PAHO said it is leading the “Zero Deaths from Haemorrhage” initiative.The initiative targets obstetric hemorrhage, the second-leading cause of maternal death in the Americas, by supporting country efforts to expand women’s access to the quality health services they need.PAHO said the initiative promotes quality assurances and respect for women’s rights while working to strengthen the health workforce and the use of simple health technologies.It also addresses geographical and cultural barriers that cause delays in women’s seeking care.PAHO said access to radiological services is “one more tool that can help reduce preventable deaths”.last_img read more

Rooney will consider MLS move

by ,

first_img But when that time comes, a move across the Atlantic will be considered. “I’m obviously concentrating on Manchester United,” said the United captain in an interview with the Seattle Times during United’s tour of the States. “When that time comes, that’ll be something I’d think about. (I’ll) sit down with my wife and children and decide if it would be right for me.” United play the first of four tour matches against Club America in Seattle and then travel to San Jose, where they face San Jose Earthquakes and Barcelona before tackling Paris St Germain in Chicago. The fact that United have toured the United States for the last two seasons has enhanced their growing popularity in the country. Scores of fans – many of them wearing Rooney’s name on the back of their shirts – have gathered outside the team hotel in Bellevue, on the outskirts of Seattle, since the squad arrived on Monday to begin their two-and-a-half week tour. Rooney has been taken aback by the popularity of the club in the country. “When you’re first getting into the first team, it’s not something you think about,” Rooney said. “You’re just trying to break into the team. “The older you get, the more you start to think about it, and realize how big football is. Coming to these tours, you get to see it first hand and realize the passion and how much football can bring people together.” Frank Lampard and Steven Gerrard became the latest Englishmen to move to the United States this summer when they joined New York City and the Los Angeles Galaxy respectively. Given that he has four years left on his contract at Old Trafford, Rooney is not currently considering where his future lies beyond United.

Regional Under-15 cricket.. Hosts Barbados reamain unbeaten but T&T slump again

by ,

first_imgBRIDGETOWN, Barbados, (CMC) – Hosts Barbados remained unbeaten but reigning champions Trinidad and Tobago slumped to their second loss in three outings, in the third round of the Regional Under-15 Championship here Monday.Playing at the Windward Cricket Club in the southern parish of St Phillip, Barbados trounced Jamaica by 89 runs behind a marvellous unbeaten hundred from the enterprising Jacob Bethell and a six-wicket haul from new-ball bowler Romario Brathwaite.Leeward Islands followed in similar vein when they beat the Trinidadians by 15 runs at KMV Oval in the rural northern parish of St Andrew and Windward Islands were also in winner’s row when they got the better of Guyana by 14 runs in a contest at Weymouth A in the capital.However, it was the left-handed Bethell who took centre stage when he punched the first hundred of the campaign.He batted through the innings to end on exactly 100 not out as Barbados, opting for first knock, tallied 222 for eight off their 50 overs.Bethell put on 113 for the first wicket with Giovante DePeiza who made 44 and a further 53 for the third wicket with Thierry Walcott who scored 25.All told, Bethell faced 137 deliveries and struck seven fours.Brandon English led Jamaica with three for 26 while Rajiv Redhi picked up two for 28.Medium pacer Brathwaite then wrecked Jamaica’s innings with a spell of six for 20, sending them tumbling for 133 all out off 39.5 overs.The Jamaicans were tottering on 22 for three in the sixth over and never recovered despite knocks of 27 from Shemar Phillips and 20 from Noris Tenn.The best stand of the innings was 31 for the seventh wicket between Tenn and Redhi who made 17.T&T, meanwhile, failed to defend 169 and were soundly beaten to follow up their opening round defeat to Jamaica.Opting to bat first, they were limited to 168 for eight off their 50 overs with Darren Samlal top-scoring with 44 not out, Kyle Roopchand chipping in with 22 and Tariq Mohammed getting 21.T&T appeared in good shape at 95 for two and then 150 for five but lost wickets in clustered to deteriorate badly.Mohammed and Sachin Emrit (12) put on 46 for the third wicket and when three wickets fell with the score on 95 in the space of 10 balls, Samlal and Chadeon Raymond (17) stitched up the innings in a 55-run, sixth wicket partnership.In their turn at the crease, the Lewwards cruised to their target in the 43rd over with Carlton Tuckett getting 40, T’Jhari Clarke, 27, and Anderson Amurdan, 25.They lost Rasheed Henry cheaply for two in the third over with five runs on the board but Tuckett and Amurdan put the innings back on course with a 64-run, second wicket partnership.Tuckett, in particular, was aggressive, striking seven fours in his breezy 37-ball knock.In the other game, Teddy Bishop hit 51 as the Windwards rallied to 162 all out in the final over, after choosing to bat first.Medium pacer Sheldon Charles claimed for four 28 while left-arm spinner Hemraj Harrilall picked up two for 25.In reply, Guyana were restricted to 148 off 48.3 overs as Udell Preville (3-23) and Ackeem Auguste (3-32) ran through the innings with three wickets apiece.Marvan Prashad struck 40 and Charles, 39, in a 38-run stand that pushed Guyana up to 96 for three in the 33rd over but once the partnership was broken, the last seven wickets perished for 52 runs.last_img read more

Don’t buy into all the hype

by ,

first_imgWeek one of college football certainly delivered. Apart from USC’s 55-6 trashing of Arkansas State, marquee matchups — Alabama vs. Wisconsin and Arizona State vs. Texas A&M — lived up to expectations.We now know that Arizona State should never have been ranked No. 15 and Alabama’s defense looks scary good.While these games certainly stick out to any normal fan, you’ll find some rather interesting storylines if you dig deeper.No. 21 Stanford fell to unranked Northwestern and UCLA’s Josh Rosen had a near perfect debut, passing for 351 yards and three touchdowns while completing 28 of 35 passes.In fact, Rosen’s first game, against unranked Virginia — a team that has not won a road game in three years — went so well that many experts now have UCLA as their pick to win the Pac-12 and make the College Football Playoff.This sounds awfully familiar. Just last year, it seems this same exact situation happened.On opening weekend last season, No. 21 Texas A&M traveled to Columbia to take on then-No. 9 South Carolina. Led by quarterback Kenny Hill, the Aggies crushed the Gamecocks 52-28.Hill, who was making his first start for the Aggies after the departure of former Heisman winner Johnny Manziel, went 44-60 for 511 yards and three touchdowns.Texas A&M was thrust into the top 10, jumping 12 spots to No. 9, and even receiving two first-place votes.Hill immediately found himself in the national spotlight, leading the conversation for Heisman and giving himself the nickname Kenny “Trill.”Fast forward a few months and the Aggies finish the season 8-5 (3-5) and find themselves outside the final top 25 poll.Kenny “Trill” decides to transfer to TCU after losing the starting job to Kyle Allen in the aftermath of an embarrassing 59-0 loss at the hands of Alabama.Last year’s Texas A&M team is just one example of how preseason rankings are misleading.USC was ranked No. 1 in 2012, and we all know how that ended. It seems that Oklahoma is always ranked in the top 10 year after year despite their last National Championship being 15 years ago.Even the Aggies find themselves in the same position as last season — defeating a top ranked team at a “neutral site” and vaulting into the national conversation.Preseason hype will forever be a factor in all sports, professional and collegiate. However, there are steps that the NCAA could take to temper the hype a little.Instead of releasing preseason polls, why not wait until the third or fourth week to release the initial poll?Under this scenario, most teams would have the opportunity to play at least one quality opponent to show they deserve to be ranked in the top 25.Take this week for example. No. 7 Oregon will travel to East Lansing to take on No. 5 Michigan State.The loser of this game will almost certainly fall out of the top 10, so what is the point of having them ranked so high at the beginning of the season?This week alone, three new teams jumped into the top 25 — Texas A&M, Mississippi State and Utah.Next week you can expect even more teams to drop in and out of the top 25 as there are numerous high quality matchups.Besides Oregon vs. Michigan State, some of the key games this week include No. 14 LSU vs. No. 25 Mississippi State, No. 20 Boise State vs. BYU and No. 19 Oklahoma vs. No. 23 Tennessee.Basically, we could be looking at possibly 5-7 new teams in the top 25 after just two weeks.While I know this is about as unrealistic as it gets, I can still dream for the day I can turn on SportsCenter and not see Kirk Herbstreit declaring the next national champions after one week, right?But who knows?Maybe Josh Rosen will be that good and UCLA will win the Pac-12. Maybe USC will surprise everyone and go undefeated.Or maybe Rosen will be average and the Bruins will go 8-4. Maybe the Trojans will endure a mediocre season. Nobody knows until the games are played.So what’s the point of all that preseason hype?Nick Barbarino is a senior majoring in business administration.
