Juneau Assembly kicks in another $1.2 million for Housing First

first_imgAlcohol & Substance Abuse | Housing | Juneau | Local GovernmentJuneau Assembly kicks in another $1.2 million for Housing FirstApril 24, 2017 by Jacob Resneck, KTOO Share:The Housing First Project under construction on November. (Photo by David Purdy/KTOO)The City and Borough of Juneau has come to the aid of the Juneau Housing First Project with another $1.2 million.Housing First is designed to serve Juneau’s most vulnerable residents, many of them homeless. But grants and other fundraising have been leaner than projected for the 32-unit complex and clinic under construction.Housing First was originally slated to open in May. But when the project lost Front Street Community Health Center as its partner to run the onsite clinic, that pushed things back. Now a new partner’s been found: the Juneau Alliance for Mental Health, Inc.“You know we’re just responding to the needs of the community, the program,” Doug Harris of JAMHI said. “And we’ve been fully invested in the Housing First project since its initial planning stages.”The Juneau Assembly unanimously approved the increased funding without discussion Monday evening.“We’re really excited to start moving people in,” Housing First’s Project Manager Mariya Lovishchuk said. “This feels like a huge, huge step.”The Housing First complex is now slated to open in July and gives preference to what case workers identify as the community’s most vulnerable residents.Share this story:last_img read more

Defector families face resentment in the border region

She has a degree in economics and writes largely on marketization and economy-related issues for Daily NK.

Life for ordinary residents in cities on the Sino-North Korean border has become increasingly difficult as the crackdowns have resulted in less products available at markets and very little remittance money coming in from abroad. The difficult situation has led many residents to complain about defector families, with some going as far as branding them “collaborators.” “Even children of defector families are immediately treated as outcasts. That’s how bad the situation has become,” the source explained.As a result of the heightened tensions, a growing number of families of North Korean defectors are reportedly complaining of symptoms of anxiety in border areas.“There have been many cases of people receiving phone calls and even house visits from strangers [likely security officials],” the source said, adding, “Although it’s not the first time defector families have experienced this kind of treatment, they agree that it’s worse this time.”*Translated by Gabriela BernalPlease direct any comments or questions about this article to [email protected] in Korean TAGSDefectorssino-north korean bordersurveillance SHARElast_img read more

CIHR and health partners invest more than $21 million in cannabis research

first_imgCIHR and health partners invest more than $21 million in cannabis research From: Canadian Institutes of Health ResearchCIHR and its partners have invested $19.3 million to support researchers who will explore the potential therapeutic benefits and harms associated with cannabis use in areas such as cancer, pain, neurodevelopment and Indigenous Peoples’ health.The Government of Canada legalized and regulated the non-medical use of cannabis in October 2018. As part of an ongoing commitment to generate evidence on the health and safety effects of cannabis, the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and six health partners are investing more than $21 million to fund cannabis research to advance our understanding of the potential benefits and harms of cannabis use.CIHR and its partners (Arthritis Society, Canadian Cancer Society, Mental Health Commission of Canada, MS Society of Canada, Veterans Affairs Canada) have invested $19.3 million to support researchers who will explore the potential therapeutic benefits and harms associated with cannabis use in areas such as cancer, pain, neurodevelopment and Indigenous Peoples’ health. These focus areas were identified through stakeholder consultations.An additional $2.45 million from the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction is going towards evaluating the public health and public safety impacts of different provincial or territorial policies related to cannabis.These investments are part of CIHR’s Integrated Cannabis Research Strategy (ICRS), which provides a well-coordinated series of activities that position Canada as a leader in supporting the advancement and translation of scientific knowledge on cannabis.Quotes“As the Government of Canada’s federal funding agency for health research, the creation of new knowledge and its translation into improved health for Canadians is at the core of our mandate. This initiative, developed in close collaboration with our partners, is a key component of our integrated cannabis research strategy and will serve to inform future cannabis-related policy that protects the health and safety of Canadians. And it speaks directly to the strength and depth of commitment of the Canadian health research ecosystem to tackle such critical and timely issues on the health impacts of cannabis use.”Dr. Michael J. StrongPresident, Canadian Institutes of Health Research“There remain many unknowns about the use of cannabis, specifically its health and safety effects. This research and the Integrated Cannabis Research Strategy will ensure a coordinated, thorough approach to developing and translating new knowledge on cannabis to inform policies, programs and services in Canada. This will be valuable for governments, public health professionals, health care providers and all Canadians to regulate, prescribe and use cannabis safely.”Dr. Samuel WeissScientific Director, CIHR Institute of Neurosciences, Mental Health and Addiction“We know many people with arthritis are turning to medical cannabis to help alleviate their chronic pain, which can be debilitating. But we also know there are many unanswered questions about the use of medical cannabis to treat arthritis symptoms. We’re delighted to co-fund this project with CIHR to help answer some of those questions.”Trish Barbato,President and CEO of the Arthritis Society“The Canadian Cancer Society is pleased to partner with CIHR to fund innovative new research on the potential benefits and harms of cannabis use for people with cancer. The outcomes of this research will provide much needed evidence to guide healthcare providers, people with cancer and their families in making informed decisions about their health and wellbeing.”Dr. Stuart EdmondsExecutive Vice President, Mission, Research and Advocacy, Canadian Cancer Society“The CCSA is pleased to partner with CIHR and support the Partnerships for Cannabis Policy Evaluation Team Grants. The five cutting-edge research projects funded through this initiative will evaluate the impact of cannabis legalization and regulation from various perspectives. As we approach year three of the legalization of cannabis for recreational purposes, the findings from this research are not only timely, but vital to support public health and safety evidence-based policy and practice and reflects CCSA’s commitment to evidence, engagement and impact.”Rita NotarandreaCEO, Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction“The MS Society has always emphasized the need for continued investment in research to study the effects of cannabis. The trial that was selected as part of this partnership provides an opportunity to ensure there are effective evidence-informed treatment options to support symptom management.”Dr. Pamela Valentine President and CEO, MS Society of CanadaQuick factsThe Team Grants: Cannabis Research in Priority Areas provide up to $300,000 per year for up to five years, for a total of $1.5 million per grant.The partners for the Team Grants: Cannabis Research in Priority Areas include:Arthritis SocietyThe Canadian Cancer SocietyThe Mental Health Commission of CanadaThe Multiple Sclerosis Society of CanadaVeterans Affairs CanadaThe Team Grants: Partnerships for Cannabis Policy Evaluation provide up to $150,000 per year for up to three years, for a total of $450,000 per grant.CIHR’s partner for the Team Grants: Partnerships for Cannabis Policy Evaluation is the Canadian Centre on Substance Use and Addiction. /Public Release.

141 baby Bell’s turtles returned to wild

first_img141 baby Bell’s turtles returned to wild Turtles Forever has moved one step closer to success with the release of the last of this year’s 141 baby Bell’s Turtles into the Roumalla Creek today. Now at its halfway mark, the 10-year project aims to bring back sustainable turtle populations in NSW’s Northern Tablelands.When fewer and fewer young Bell’s Turtles were being detected, Turtles Forever was launched thanks to a $1M NSW Environmental Trust grant led by Northern Tablelands Local Land Services in partnership with the University of New England, turtle ecologists, Canines for Wildlife and the Department of Primary Industries.UNE researcher Lou Streeting started a PhD to look at why there were so few young turtles and found feral foxes were raiding more than 95 per cent of Bell’s Turtle nests.“So far we have helped more than 1500 hatchling turtles join the population,” Ms Streeting said.“Of those, more than 1000 were from nests that we protected on the riverbank, and 533 were from eggs that we incubated and hatched in the laboratory at UNE.“We are now seeing those hatchlings surviving and flourishing in the wild as two- and three-year olds. It’s been extraordinary to be part of this project and our results provide hope for the future of Bell’s Turtles.”The first steps in the incredible Turtles Forever story were thanks to science, the community, landholders and different agencies working collaboratively, Local Land Services’ Marty Dillon said.“Private landowners coming on board to allow our researchers to access their properties to protect nests with wire mesh or fox exclusion fencing has been key to the success,” Mr Dillon said.“Saving these turtles ignites people’s enthusiasm – landowners, school children – it’s uplifting to help effect a positive outcome.”The Turtles Forever project is protecting the endangered Bell’s Turtle which is found only in the Namoi, Gwydir, Severn and Deepwater River systems in the Northern Tablelands of NSW.“Turtles Forever was funded as one of the Trust’s nine Saving our Species Partnerships Grant Projects, which aim to improve the chances of survival for over 30 threatened species in NSW,” Environmental Trust project officer Kersten Tuckey said.“These markers of success, halfway through the partnership grant program, are exciting and a testament to the passion and commitment of our project partners,” she said. /Public Release.

The Strong Girls of Samohi: girls wrestling team prepares for season opener

first_imgHomeFeaturedThe Strong Girls of Samohi: girls wrestling team prepares for season opener Nov. 21, 2019 at 6:00 amFeaturedNewsSportsThe Strong Girls of Samohi: girls wrestling team prepares for season openerBrennon Dixson2 years agoSamohisportswrestling With the return of three standout wrestlers and an infusion of new talent and coaching, the girls’ wrestling team at Samohi is looking to take its division by storm when the season kicks off Friday.The teams’ grunts, booms from hitting the mat and laughter are all audible before one enters Santa Monica High School’s gym on a weekday afternoon. Open the door and one may be surprised to see a 100-pound teenage girl finalizing a pin on a member of the boys’ team, but Coach Aldo Juliano said it’s not as uncommon as you may think.Though wrestling has been traditionally considered a sport for men, Aldo said his five strong girls can be as good as anybody in the area — boy or girl — which is why he feels the team has a serious shot at contending for the CIF playoffs later this year.The TeamHaving spent most of her life sparring with her sister — a former Samohi wrestling standout — junior Rayna Prasad enters this year as the team’s most experienced competitor, and the two-time state qualifier is hoping to build on her last few seasons of success.Like Prasad, a majority of girls on the team have experience with martial arts or other contact sports.Fellow Samohi junior Kristena Nichols played soccer and basketball before she decided to give wrestling a shot at a school she previously attended.“My sister did it so she and my old coach said, ‘Yeah, you should come try it out,’ and he let me borrow his shoes because I didn’t have any to practice with,” Nichols said. “Really, I just got pinned the first day the whole time.”Many on the team can relate to Nichols’ experience of repeatedly getting beat when they first started wrestling but they refused to be defeated so easily.Sophomore Emily Gomez said she is thankful that her dad has provided her with opportunities to do activities like wrestling because the life lessons she’s learned have shaped her development as a person.“I would not be the person I am right now without wrestling,” added sophomore Maggie Ineno. “I was really hesitant about joining the team freshman year… but my dad said I wouldn’t regret it and now I’m glad I did.”Ineno and others on the team said the sport has not only helped them get in shape but it’s also allowed them to practice their discipline, which is helpful in the classroom, gym and life in general.“One thing that has really stuck with me was something my coach told us. He told us, ‘Once you’ve wrestled, the rest of your life is going to be completely easy,’ and it’s really proven true.” junior Jasmin Velasquez said. Whether it’s the psychological effect of getting back up when you’re knocked down or the discipline you learn while trying to make weight, “everything about the sport makes life not seem so hard.”“Wrestling is super underrated,” Ineno said, “and I feel like a lot of people look at the wrestling team just as meatheads or lesbians, but we work so hard and I think it’s important for others to recognize how great it is and how much it’s helped all of us.”First TournamentFriday’s tournament at Rowland High School has been described by the team as a big tournament because some wrestlers will be traveling from out of state to compete.“I’m nervous but I feel like now that we have a big girls team, it will be fun to go out there and compete,” Prasad said, explaining how she and her sister were usually the only girls at tournaments in years past.Though she’s new to the team and hasn’t experienced a Samohi wrestling tournament before, freshman Taira Sakamoto did compete at the 2019 Judo Junior Olympic National Championships, which she feels will help her in the coming tournament.“I’m really excited for the season,” Sakamoto said. “It’s going to be really fun being out there wrestling with these girls and I think we’ll have a very good year.”[email protected] :Samohisportswrestlingshare on Facebookshare on Twitteradd a commentSouthern California storm drops hail, heavy rainMan kills himself underneath PierYou Might Also LikeFeaturedNewsBobadilla rejects Santa Monica City Manager positionMatthew Hall7 hours agoNewsCouncil picks new City ManagerBrennon Dixson18 hours agoFeaturedNewsProtesting parents and Snapchat remain in disagreement over child protection policiesClara Harter18 hours agoFeaturedNewsDowntown grocery to become mixed use developmenteditor18 hours agoNewsBruised but unbowed, meme stock investors are back for moreAssociated Press18 hours agoNewsWedding boom is on in the US as vendors scramble to keep upAssociated Press18 hours agolast_img read more
