Panel discusses film on migration

first_imgPanelists drew from fiction to tackle the real-world challenges faced by migrants yesterday when the Center for Social Concerns and Department of Romance Languages and Literatures co-hosted a viewing and discussion of the film “Al Otro Lado.” “Al Otro Lado,” Spanish for “To the Other Side,” relates the fictional migration experiences of three men from the perspective of each man’s wife and children. While the stories each take place in different parts of the world – Morocco, Spain and Cuba – the film focuses on the commonalities of the families’ experiences. Prior to the viewing, Spanish professor Ben Heller gave a brief history of migration patterns from Cuba and Mexico to the United States and discussed the significance of geographical borders and distances. “Geographical factors are not just things on maps, but are symbolic spaces of trial, transition and growth for migrants,” he said. French professor Catherine Perry’s commentary focused on the recent immigration patterns within Europe, as one of the film’s narratives featured migration to Spain. The feature-length film touched on some of the other challenges immigrants face, such as poverty and prejudice. Panelist and theology professor Fr. Dan Groody – who has personally worked with migrants in Mexico, Syria and Morocco – discussed the theological framework of migration following the film. “Immigration is a social, political and economic reality, but it is also a spiritual and theological journey as well,” Groody said. Groody compared migrants’ journeys from their homeland to humanity’s ultimate journey away from and eventual return to God, applying a theological symbolism on a political issue. “The theology of migration allows us to gain a new imagination of who we are before God,” he said. Sean O’Brien, assistant director at the Center for Civil and Human Rights, provided a legal perspective on migration in his remarks following the film’s conclusion. He attributed much of today’s migration to violations of human rights. “We recognize human rights as inalienable and universal regardless of legal status,” O’Brien said, citing the United Nations’ Universal Declaration of Human Rights. O’Brien said the awareness of these rights allow migrants to take advantage of them and improve their situation. “These rights are a tool for empowerment for immigrants as well as a set of remedies,” O’Brien said.last_img read more

School bus safety

first_imgHow old is old enough?Another question parents often face: When is my child old enoughto walk to school or to the bus stop alone?”It all depends on the maturity of the child,” Bower said.It also depends on neighborhood safety.”A child should not walk to school by himself younger than age9,” Bower said. “They should walk with an adult. But at 9 yearsold and up, depending on the neighborhood and the distance toschool, most mature children should be fine.”The same can be used as a guideline for going to a bus stopalone.”A parent should walk with the child to school or the bus stopthe first few times for practice,” Bower said.Seatbelts on school buses are an often-debated issue, but Bowersays full-sized buses are very safe with or without them. Somestates require belts on buses, and the NHTSA is reviewing thesestandards.The greatest risks to children on school buses are other cars.The NHTSA warns that in neighborhoods, near schools and at busstops, drivers need to take special care because children don’tbehave like adults and may dart out into the road. Watchcarefully as children exit a school bus. And wait for the bus tomove along before driving forward. More than 33 children die each yearMillions of children in the United States ride safely on schoolbuses each day. But an average of 33 school-age children die inschool bus-related traffic crashes each year, according to theNational Highway Traffic Safety Administration.”In the 1997-98 school year, more than 800 students (ages 5-18)were killed on their way to and from school if you include allmodes of transportation — not just school buses,” Bower said.According to the NHTSA, an average of 14 school-age pedestriansare killed by school buses each year, and six are killed by othervehicles involved in bus-related accidents.Most of those killed in bus accidents are pedestrians 5 to 7years old. They’re hit in the danger zone around the bus, eitherby a passing vehicle or by the bus itself.”Many more kids are killed running in front of or behind the busand getting hit by another car,” Bower said. “They can get theirbackpack caught on the bus handrail and get injured or stoop topick something up under the bus and the driver doesn’t see them.” Follow these safety rulesGet the year off to a good start by reviewing bus-stop safetyrules.Bill Barnett of the Pupil Transportation division of the GeorgiaDepartment of Public Safety offers these tips:* Get to the bus stop 5 minutes before the bus’s scheduledarrival. “Kids get hurt when they are rushing to catch a bus,” hesaid.* Don’t play at the bus stop.* Wait well off the road.* Dress for the weather.* Don’t start toward the bus until it stops completely and thered lights come on.* When you get on the bus, use the handrail and take the stepsone at a time.* Cross in front of the bus, far enough out so the driver can seeyou.* If you have to cross the street to get on the bus, check fortraffic and wait for the bus driver to signal you to cross theroad. “After the driver signals, check for traffic again beforeyou cross the road,” Barnett warns.center_img By Faith PeppersUniversity of GeorgiaThe first day of school, just a few weeks away, can be exciting.New clothes, new book bags, new teachers and, for some, the newexperience of riding the big, yellow bus. Before you send yourchild to the bus stop, be prepared.”Students are much more at risk traveling to and from school thanat any other time during the school day,” said Don Bower, aUniversity of Georgia Extension Service human developmentspecialist.last_img read more

Blood test ‘to help smokers quit’

first_img Sharing is caring! 213 Views   no discussions Share Share Tweetcenter_img HealthLifestyle Blood test ‘to help smokers quit’ by: BBC News – January 12, 2015 Although smoking is becoming less popular in many parts of the world, the total number of smokers is growingA blood test could help people choose a stop-smoking strategy that would give them the best chance of quitting, research in a Lancet journal suggests.Studies show as many as 60% of people who try to give up start smoking again in the first week.But researchers argue measuring how quickly a person breaks down nicotine could boost the chances of success.Other experts say the cost-effectiveness of these extra tests would need to be assessed.Patches or pillsNicotine is one of the most addictive substances in cigarettes – smokers crave more nicotine when their body’s levels drop, prompting them to smoke again.But different people break down nicotine at different rates.Some scientists suggest people who break it down more quickly may crave more cigarettes and in turn find it harder to quit.In this study, researchers from the University of Pennsylvania in the US enlisted some 1,240 people on different smoking cessation programmes.They checked each volunteer’s blood to see if nicotine was broken down at a normal or slow rate.Volunteers received either a nicotine patch, a drug called varenicline or treatment with a dummy pill.Varenicline is a non-nicotine based drug that is available on prescription . Doctors balance potential side-effects – including the risk of depression and suicide – against the harms of continued smoking.Everyone in the trial had access to behavioural counselling too.Nicotine replacement can be in the form of patches and spraysScientists found people who broke down nicotine at a normal rate had a better chance of quitting while using varenicline than those using nicotine replacement patches.Though volunteers who broke nicotine down more slowly had similar success rates whichever method they used, they reported more side-effects with the varenicline.Prof Caryn Lerman, one of the lead researchers, said: “If these tests are used, people could have a sizeable chance of success.Wider use“For some people, with normal metabolism of nicotine, the chance of success might be low on the patches but could double if they take the pill while for a third of the population with slower breakdown, cheaper patches might be best.”Blood tests to check for nicotine breakdown speed are currently used in research but scientists say they could be easily developed for much wider use.Prof Neil Davies, of the University of Bristol, provided an independent comment: “The results are an important scientific advance.“If the findings can be replicated they could lead to changes in practice. But there are still questions that need to be answered.“The cost-effectiveness of these tests would need to be taken into account.”Prof Robert West, from University College London, who was not involved in this paper, said: “We know that if people try to quit unaided their chance of success for a year is about 4%.“The way to succeed is to keep trying. It is like rolling a dice. If you keep rolling it you will succeed but if you stop rolling you will fail.”The University of Pennsylvania research was published in the the Lancet Respiratory Medicine journal.
