According to World Bank statistics, no country uses more of its gross domestic product for education than Cuba. Nearly 13 percent of the total value of all the goods and services produced in Cuba over a year, or one of every eight euros, is used to provide free education through the post-graduate level. (tinyurl.com/pl9ygcz)For anyone who wonders how hundreds of Cuban trained doctors mobilized like no other nation to help stop the horrible Ebola epidemic in West African countries, this statistic is certainly a clue. Education is free, including university and post-graduate training.Cuba had 6,000 doctors before the revolution, but only half stayed to help build a socialist future. In 1959, 37.5 percent of Cubans were illiterate and 70 percent of Cuba’s children had no teacher.Cuban President Fidel Castro revealed these details of Cuba’s colonial underdevelopment that challenged the young revolution in a speech before the United Nations on Sept. 26, 1960.In that speech, he announced the massive 1961 Literacy Campaign that mobilized 250,000 volunteers — 100,000 under the age of 18 — to erase illiteracy in all corners of the island, including the remote mountainous regions. In 1962, the U.N. declared Cuba free of illiteracy.Infant mortality was at least 60 per thousand live births before the revolution. Cuba just announced the current national statistic of 4.2 per thousand. This couldn’t have been achieved without a thorough commitment to universal free education as well as universal health care.Education is critical to fully develop human beings and to maximize each individual’s potential to contribute to the common good of a socialist economy. Literacy is a powerful weapon, which is why in the U.S. it was illegal to teach an enslaved person of African descent to read and write.In 2004, Cuba and Venezuela initiated the Bolivarian Alliance for the Peoples of Our Americas, known as ALBA, which is also the Spanish word for dawn. Using the Cuban literacy program “Yo Sí Puedo,” UNESCO certified Venezuela free of illiteracy in 2005. Other ALBA partners — Ecuador, Nicaragua and Bolivia — also achieved that milestone, including literacy in several Indigenous languages.Without fanfare or publicity, tens of thousands of Cuban trained medical, teaching and other professionals are internationalist volunteers across the globe in day-to-day work and to assist in natural disasters. When Haiti suffered a devastating earthquake five years ago, Cuban doctors were already there. In 2005, the U.S. rebuffed Cuba’s offer of 1,586 medical disaster specialists to aid the people of New Orleans after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Many of those same “Henry Reeve Contingent” doctors were then deployed to help Pakistani earthquake survivors in the Himalayas. Granma.cu just reported that 600 new Pakistani doctors will be graduating from Cuban medical schools to return home.Cuban researchers have developed medicines like Herberprot-B, a foot ulcer medication that can prevent diabetic amputations. The U.S. government’s unilateral economic, commercial and financial blockade against Cuba — still in full effect despite Barack Obama’s speech on Dec. 17 — prevents Cuba from fully developing its potential and U.S. residents from sharing in Cuban advances.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare this

Follow the news on Peru November 22, 2016 Peru- Radio presenter shot dead in mid-broadcast Hernán Choquepata Ordóñez, also known as “Randy” Ordóñez, was shot in the head by at least one gunman who stormed into Radio La Ribereña as Ordóñez was presenting a music programme. The presenter, who was alone in the studio at the time, died while being rushed to hospital. In a programme called “Habla el Pueblo,” Ordóñez interviewed local residents who often complained about the region’s elected authorities. Ordóñez himself was also often openly critical of local leaders during his broadcasts, lambasting the mayors of Camaná and the nearby town of Mariscal Cáceres the week before his murder. “The leading hypothesis for those investigating this crime must be that the motive was linked to the victim’s work as a journalist,” said Emmanuel Colombié, the head of RSF’s Latin America bureau. “The authorities cannot allow this murder to go unpunished and fade into oblivion. It was an attack on the entire Peruvian media.” According to colleagues at Radio La Ribereña, Ordóñez recently received death threats and had reported the threats to the police.

Shannon Airport braced for a devastating blow Housing 37 Compulsory Purchase Orders issued as council takes action on derelict sites RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR WhatsApp Email Local backlash over Aer Lingus threat Facebook Limerick on Covid watch list Linkedin The new sensory garden at Gabriels School.Photo: Keith WisemanFOR the young charges at St Gabriel’s school and Therapy Centre in Dooradoyle, their new sensory room and garden are a stress buster, an anxiety remedy and a developmental aid all wrapped into one.Sensory experiences help children with special needs to cope with the demands placed on them in dealing with a world that is often strange, frightening and just too much.Sign up for the weekly Limerick Post newsletter Sign Up So while the school and the parents’ association feel the room and garden are worth every penny of the €46,000 that they cost, they still have to be paid for so they are planning fundraisers, the first of which it’s hoped will bring in €6,000 to help tackle the overdraft.“Sensory input is hugely important for the children to ground and de-stress,” explained Linda O’Leary of St Gabriel’s PTA.“The school didn’t have any such facility since it opened so we got to work on providing the room during the summer break.“It’s also very important for the kids to have a safe space where they can explore nature and experience the outdoors, the feel of sensory plants, the smells, the fresh air. The gardens are accessible from the classrooms so it’s right there for them,” Linda told the Limerick Post.The event planned for Friday, October 5 in the ballroom of the Savoy Hotel will take revellers back to the 80′s.“James Sexton has very kindly offered to host all the entertainment for the night so it’s going to be a memorable event. The hotel has also been very good to us, giving us the room and helping us out with the finger food”.Apart from the food, the bopping and the fun atmosphere, there will lots of party games and fantastic spot prizes.“We have a signed Limerick jersey and signed hurleys and weekends away. We have loads of fantastic prizes on offer,” said Linda.And for anyone who wants to dress up in the gear of the era that fashion forgot, there’s a photo-both on site to make the embarrassment of wearing leg-warmers and shoulder pads last.“This is an event is being organised solely by the St Gabriel’s Parents Association so we can guarantee that all money raised on the night will go directly to the school and not other projects under the umbrella of St Gabriel’s school and centre,” Linda explained.Tickets are €20 and are available in advance from the school or at the door. Doors open 7.30pm and the craic will go on until late.

It revealed an upward spike in the number of brand-new houses flipped in California during the past year, compared to all other states. In addition, California featured as the top state for loan originations in 2017. The report highlighted that house flipping is an integral part of California’s residential industry. Several aging homes in need of repair undergo a significant upgrade through renovations. Quoting U.S. Census Bureau’s American Housing Survey, the report indicated that over half of all homes in the country are at least 39 years old. The data in ‘State of The Flipping Market’ also reveals the number of flips in each county statewide – from 2014 through 2017. The report findings are based on the growth in the total number of fix-and-flip homes purchased, median revenue per flip and the percent of flips financed with a loan. According to the report, the rampant flipping activity in California is reflective of a strong seller’s market wherein people looking to buy a starter home will be successful homeowners given their willingness to undertake renovations themselves. To flip a house in California takes 180 days —20 days faster compared to the nationwide average. Speaking of renovations among millennial homebuyers, a recent report titled “Pins & Properties: Chasing Your Dream Home” by Chase Home Lending and Pinterest revealed that 87 percent millennials are planning some kind of renovation and 68 percent intend to spend at least $20,000 on renovation projects. As most first time homebuyers do not have the income to afford their dream home right away, they purchase starter homes and make substantial upgrades eventually. Top 5 flipping hot spots in California by county Los Angeles topped the list with 25.71 percent of total flip houses purchased between 2014 and 2017, recording a median revenue per flip at $140,000. This was followed by San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino, and Sacramento at 9.55 percent, 8.88 percent, 7.28 percent, and 6.08 percent repectively—the percentage indicative of all flip houses purchased.

Ocean City junior quarterback Joe Repetti scores a rushing TD against Long Branch. (Photos courtesy of OCHSfootball.com) By TIM KELLYEverybody loves a winner, and an underdog winner gets extra love.At least that seems to be the case for the seventh-seeded Ocean City High School football team, which lines up at top-seeded, two-time defending champs Shawnee’s Medford campus 7 p.m. Friday for a shot at the South Jersey Group 4 title.The Red Raiders, currently 8-2 overall, including two come-from-behind playoff wins on the road against higher seeded teams, have been attracting a lot of attention lately.They are the lowest seeded team in the state playoffs to advance to the sectional finals. If they win, it would be O.C.’s first state championship since 2000.“We are hoping everyone picks against us,” O.C. Head Coach Kevin Smith said in an e-mail. “The underdog role suits us well.”Maybe it’s time for Ocean City fans to dust off those dog masks from the Eagles’ 2017 Super Bowl run. The Raiders have drawn big crowds of supporters on the road all season. But with the games available for viewing live on the internet, Raider Nation has gone national and even international. “I have heard from people all over the country the past few weeks who have watched us live from California, Florida, Washington, Arizona and Connecticut,” Smith said.He added that one of the player’s grandparents were heard from during a vacation in the Caribbean. “You all are experienced road warriors,” Smith told supporters. “Let’s do it again and pack the house at Shawnee Friday night.” Ocean City Head Coach Kevin Smith will match wits with 37-year veteran Shawnee coach Tim Gushue.Ocean City’s season, remarkable on its face, seems even more impressive given that the team has played only three games at home at Carey Stadium.The Raiders punched their ticket to the finals last Friday with a 21-20 thriller at Long Branch, a 90-mile drive from Ocean City. Before that, they avenged a bitter regular season loss at Mainland with a 21-14 victory in the tourney’s opening round, also at the Mustang Corral in Linwood.Shawnee didn’t have it any easier. The Renegades traveled to Neptune to post a hard-fought 31-21 opening round win and then came from behind to defeat Millville, also on the road, 27-18.Junior two-way back Nate Summerville was the star of the game for Shawnee, catching a crucial fourth quarter TD pass and breaking up a two-point conversion pass attempt that would have tied the game earlier in the period. Shawnee is coached by Tim Gushue, one of the longest tenured coaches in the state and a member of the school’s first graduating class. He has led the Renegades for 37 seasons, including four after undergoing successful quadruple bypass heart surgery. His teams are always tough and prepared. They have shown themselves to be mortal, though. The Renegades have two very bad losses on the books, including a 48-0 blowout at home to Woodrow Wilson and a 17-0 defeat to Williamstown two weeks later, also at home.If you want to play the common opponents game, Shawnee has a 14-7 overtime win at home over St. Augustine Prep, a non-public playoff semifinalist, which beat O.C. 35-3 in Week 5. However, Shawnee’s win was prior to the Hermits’ addition of two key transfer players becoming eligible to face Ocean City.None of that mattered to Smith during this week’s practice schedule. What mattered was his squad’s work ethic and resiliency.“I can’t express how proud I am of this team for their effort and determination,” Smith said. “They stayed focused, never quit and just kept playing football. The result is we are headed to the championship game.”The Red Raiders celebrate after their semi-final playoff win at Long Branch.
