Midweek Madness – The Brussow Bounce

first_imgWednesday Jul 8, 2009 Midweek Madness – The Brussow Bounce We’ve come across a pretty ridiculous, but fairly entertaining video for you today from the third test of the epic Lions vs Springboks series that concluded in Johannesburg on the weekend.ADVERTISEMENTYoung Heinrich Brussow was a thorn in the Lions side since their meeting with the Cheetahs, a match in which he single handedly got the home side back in the match by dominating at the breakdown.His rise to the top has been rapid, and with injury and disciplinary problems from Schalk Burger, the youngster from Bloemfontein has take his opportunity with open arms and now looks set to be in the Springbok fold for many years to come.As a genuine fetcher, Brussow, one of the smaller forwards in world rugby, realises that his game is pushed to the limit of the law.“It’s a fine line a fetcher has to walk – you have to be bold but you have to be careful, especially with three points against you a possibility if you transgress. You walk a tightrope.“Slowing ball down is one of the keys to success in Test rugby because it gives your defensive line more time to get organised.“At the same time, if I can turn over their ball, we have a superb backline that is very dangerous on the counter-attack. So if I give the guys an opportunity on both counts I will have done my job.”ADVERTISEMENTFunnily enough it was the Lions’ Welsh fetcher supreme Martyn Williams who was slowing down the ball in the third test, as he got it lodged between his legs, preventing the Boks from taking a quick tap.Brussow got frustrated, then literally manhandled Williams as he tried to shake the ball loose as if he were dusting off an old rug. The comical incident led to this crazy video, and a move we’ve named the Brussow Bounce. Don’t try this at home.Discussion Point:It seems that these days players get away with a helluva lot by preventing a side from taking a quick tap when a penalty or free kick is awarded. Should referees be stricter in governing this offence, or is it just part of the game?ADVERTISEMENTTime: 01:33 Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

2019 Trade Aid May Violate WTO Commitments

first_imgHome Indiana Agriculture News 2019 Trade Aid May Violate WTO Commitments 2019 Trade Aid May Violate WTO Commitments A recent independent report suggests U.S. trade aid in 2019 for farmers may surpass limits set in World Trade Organization commitments.The report for the American Enterprise Institute by Joe Glauber, a former Department of Agriculture Chief Economist, suggests the size of payments made to producers in 2019 may encourage other WTO members to challenge the payments.Glauber writes, a long-term concern is “how trade compensation comports with U.S. obligations in the WTO and, more generally, how it will affect future U.S. efforts to seek further reforms in the WTO.”President Donald Trump and his administration have approved the payments, roughly $28 billion, to offset any harm by other countries retaliating against the Trump trade agenda. Glauber says current WTO rules require that annual U.S. domestic supports that distort trade flows not exceed a maximum of $19.1 billion.Since the WTO disciplines went into effect in 1995, United States levels of support have remained in that annual limit.

Child Worker at Hillsides Finds Solution to Bath Time Problem for Parents

As a program director who worked with vulnerable children and youth for 16 years at Hillsides, a premier provider of behavioral healthcare, Phillips took matters into his own hands and created a product to find a simple solution to a bath time problem. SoapSox made a debut in the market in October 2013 at the All Baby & Child Expo with novel plush characters as bath aids for children. The company’s founder, Phillips, and co-founder, Alvin Uy, will make an appearance on ABC’s Shark Tank’s Season 6, Episode 603 on October 3 at 9:00 p.m.“Children would argue, cry, and even attempt to hide to avoid taking a bath,” Phillips said. After repeated struggles with one child who could not part with his stuffed animal to bathe, Phillips took another cotton stuffed animal and modified it to hold soap. Unknowingly, SoapSox was born.Sometime later and while still working with children and families, Phillips recognized the same dilemma persisted in homes. SoapSox solved the dilemma by wrapping a traditional washcloth material fabricated in unique eye-catching designs around an anti-microbial sponge to combine fun and functionality. The bath aid has turned the chore of bathing into a time for fun and bonding for parents unlike any other product in the market.Since the product was created to help children, SoapSox is giving a portion of the proceeds to assist in providing safe places for children. SoapSox, just as Hillsides, believes every child deserves to be safe from abuse, explore, and grow. Hillsides will benefit from SoapSox’s commitment in the community.“Hillsides is that special kind of place, the place where you stay longer than you expect, and the kids always come back to visit. The administrators and staff put the children first; kids feel it, trust it, and it shows,” Phillips fondly said. “In the midst of the laughs and crises, children are slowly recapturing their childhood. It’s the kind of place that you say, “If ever I can do more for this place or others like it…I will.’”Headquartered in Pasadena, Hillsides improves the overall well-being and functioning of vulnerable children, youth, and their families throughout Los Angeles County. It consists of four core programs: Family Resource Centers that offer numerous community-based programs and services; Residential Treatment Services that provide a safe and stable environment for children unable to live at home; an Education Center, a therapeutic residential and day school for children with emotional or behavioral challenges; and Youth Moving On, a program for youth formerly in foster care who are transitioning to adulthood.What turned out to be a love of working with children and helping them feel safe has brought reassurance in the tub and quality time with parents.

To learn about Hillsides, visit www.hillsides.org.About SoapSoxFounders and fathers, Ray Phillips and Alvin Uy, created SoapSox to take away the bath time blues, while stressing the opportunity that bath time provides time to bond and develop play skills with your child.

But when we look at the statistics, they are very alarming. As per the National Mental Health Survey of India (2015-16) conducted by Union Ministry of Health and Family Welfare and NIMHANS, at least 11.1% population of Jharkhand suffers from mental disorders, a shade higher than the national average of 10.6%. This study also revealed that there was higher prevalence of “neurotic and stress related disorders” in Jharkhand as compared to other states. This issue of mental health issues becomes more problematic as on a national level, 12% children between 4 and 16 years of age in the country suffer from mental health issues. Globally 10–20% of adolescents experience mental health conditions which remain under-diagnosed and under-treated according to (WHO 2019). As reported by WHO (2019), suicide is the third leading cause of death and depression is the fourth leading cause of illness in older adolescents (15–19 years). Similarly, in young adolescents aged 10–14 years, anxiety is one of the leading causes for emotional disorders along with prevalence of childhood behavioural disorders. While these mental illnesses are so common, awareness regarding them is found rather rarely. This is substantiated by another survey (2019) conducted in India, where around 65% counsellors believed that students are not aware of the common mental illnesses. Due to this lack of awareness, students are unable to recognise the issues they are dealing with and dismiss the alarming signs as usual anxiety and sadness. Resultantly, they don’t seek help at the right time and become more susceptible to mental disorders. Therefore, during completion of elementary education (6-14 age group), students should be taught about mental health so that they are better equipped to deal with them. On similar lines, Dr. Samir Parikh, Director, Mental Health and Behavioural Sciences, has also stated that: “Mental health related information, or providing reliable and adequate sources of information to the students within the school setting seems to be majorly neglected.” While the issue is grave and taking so many lives, mental health is hardly given any importance in the schools and therefore as many as 96% professionals in a study (2019) have emphasized the need to incorporate a mental health curriculum within schools. Therefore, compulsory mental health curriculum should be introduced in the schools. Introduction of mandatory Mental Health Curriculum by Academic Authority Section 29(1) of the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Act, 2009 (Central Act) empowers the ‘Academic Authority’ as specified by the appropriate State Governments to lay down the curriculum and evaluation procedure for elementary education (6-14 age group). Section 17(2)(b) of Jharkhand Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education Rules, 2011, vests this responsibility of laying down curriculum, formulating relevant textbooks and other learning materials in the Jharkhand State Council of Educational Research and Training (JSCERT), the academic authority. Furthermore, Section 29(2)(g) of the Central Act also states that while laying down the curriculum, the academic authority should consider ‘making the child free of fear, trauma and anxiety and helping the child to express views freely’. The conjoint reading of the above specified provisions makes it clear that that by exercising these powers, the academic authority i.e. JSCERT could introduce ‘Mental Health Curriculum’ which will include importance of positive mental health, common psychological problems, knowledge about illness accompanied by experiences, examples and stories, effects of stress, successful coping strategy, fostering tolerance for disability, destigmatizing mental illness, seeking help and finding support at right time. By this introduction, it will be legally binding on the schools since recognition to the school is granted only after fulfilment of all the conditions mentioned in Form 2 under section 12 of Jharkhand Rules, including the 8th condition i.e. “The School shall follow the syllabus on the basis of curriculum laid down by the State Authority.” Increasing suicides necessitate inclusion of mental health education in schools at an early age. Here, it is interesting to note that when the National Crime Records Bureau (NCRB) data showed that Jharkhand was witnessing the maximum number of witch-hunting cases in India and widespread human trafficking from 2013 to 2016; to curb the same, the Jharkhand Government decided to introduce chapters on witch-hunting and human trafficking in the school syllabi. Can Supreme Court issue directions to Government on inclusion of such a Curriculum? In Santosh Singh v. Union of India (2016), a petition was filed for inclusion of moral science as a compulsory subject in the school syllabus in order to inculcate fading moral values and national character. The Court refused to allow the petition stating that question such as ‘whether a particular subject should be included in the school curriculum’ is beyond the scope of judicial review and it being a matter of public policy, is left to the executive. Two years later, in S.Rajakeeran v. Union of India (2018), a petition was filed for enforcement of road safety norms. After looking at the increasing number of road accidents and considering the recommendations put forth by K.S. Radhakrishnan Committee, Ministry of Road Transport & Highways and Amicus Curiae, the Court directed the State Governments to ensure that ‘Road Safety Education and Counselling’ should be incorporated into the curriculum of the State Boards. In Bachpan Bachao Andolan v. Union of India (2017), petition was filed for implementation of national action plan on the issue of drugs, alcohol and substance abuse amongst children. Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment had also recommended tobacco and education on drug abuse to be included in the curriculum. The recommendation was accepted by Committee on New Education Policy (2015) too, after which the Court also issued the direction to adopt specific content in the school curriculum under the aegis of NEP. In the first case, the Supreme Court had refrained from issuing direction for inclusion of specific curriculum and laying down policy while exercising judicial review. However in subsequent cases, after considering suggestions from different Committees and Ministry, it did issue directions to the Government on inclusion of different curricula stating that it is merely directing the Government to enforce obligations which were already existing under the legislative and administrative framework. Similarly, the below mentioned policies also put an obligation on the Government to introduce mental health curriculum. Analysing the existing Government Policies on Education and Mental Health: The objective of National Mental Health Policy launched in 2014, is to reduce stigma associated with mental health problems because lack of knowledge is accompanied by fear and hostility. Since mental health is neglected both in policy and practice, there is need to promote it. Some of the recommendations mentioned in the policy are: 1. Designing appropriate curricula and pedagogy, teacher student relationship; 2. Reliable mental health information should be readily available; 3. Life Skills Education (LSE) Programme should be offered to school going children; 4. Individual attention should be given to students by teachers trained in mental health promotion and distress alleviation. Draft National Education Policy 2019 submitted by Dr.K.Kasturirangan has also emphasized that ‘mind-and-body wellness’ lessons should be incorporated into the curriculum starting at the Foundational stage. The policy talks about introduction of socio-emotional learning which will lead to improved cognitive and emotional resilience and promote constructive social engagement. It also mentions that counsellors should be made available in the school who will ‘support and provide counselling on mental health issues, including stress and mood disorders’ to the students. The counsellors should be capable of identifying cases requiring clinical mental health support. Facilities for medical care, strong mentoring programmes by faculty along with peer support programmes (e.g. buddy systems and student support groups), therapy, and treatment in cases of illness or distress should be made available. For ensuring this, collaboration between the State departments of education and health is imperative. National Curriculum Framework 2005 has adopted a holistic definition of health including physical, social, emotional and mental development of a child. One of the guiding principles of the framework is “enriching the curriculum to provide for overall development of children rather than remain textbook centric” and this can be achieved only if mental health education is given equal importance as physical health education. School Health Programme (2018) recommends that special attention should be paid to psycho-social and mental aspects based on the developmental stages of the child. It suggests that the ideal time to teach students about mental health is Middle School. It also recommends that data regarding the following should be collected: Percentage of school-conducted session on mental health (Annually) and no. of students recognised and referred by teachers to Adolescent Friendly Clinic (AFHCs) for counselling for mental health issues (Biannually). National Focus Group on Health and Physical Education has stated that a comprehensive mental health programme should be part of the school health programme since it will strengthen the children’s coping abilities to counter environmental stress and disadvantages with which they have had to cope in growing up. There is a need to enhance skills for psycho-social competence at different stages of the child’s development. World Health Organisation (1994) has also recommended that mental health education should be included in the school health education at regional and national levels. UNICEF has also given guidelines that all adolescents between the age group of 10-19 years should receive at least 20 hours of structured experienced life skill educational training in school levels. Steps taken by Government of other States and Countries: To address the issues of mental health and wellbeing among the students, Delhi Government had launched ‘Happiness Curriculum’ for classes Nursery to VIII in 2018. The curriculum is designed on the basis of the Happiness Triad. The purpose is to engage students in meaningful and reflective stories and activities with a focus on positive emotions, healthy relationships etc. Kerala SCERT has also introduced ‘Ullasaparavakal’, a modular life skills based mental health promotive intervention into the school curriculum. Haryana Education Department has collaborated with OneKeyCare (OKC) where workshops are conducted as a part of the curriculum to increase awareness about mental health issues like depression, anxiety, eating disorders, bullying etc. Shortly, Tamil Nadu is also going to introduce a structured health and wellness programme which will cover several aspects ranging from emotional well-being to gender sensitivity. Even the Central Government is now planning to consider mental health lessons in the syllabus as per Prakash Javadekar, former Union Human Resource Development Minister. In 2018, New York Government introduced a new law which makes mental health education mandatory in schools; this is done by updating the health curriculum and including mental health in its definition and purview. Virginia’s law also mandates that mental health education should be incorporated into physical education and health curricula for 9th and 10th graders. England is also planning to make it compulsory in all schools in England following growing concerns about mental health problems among young people. In the nutshell, when the students are educated about mental health, the likelihood of effectively recognizing signs and symptoms in themselves and others increases, they will know when and where to turn for help. Health education that respects the importance of mental health, as well as the challenges of mental illness, will help in ending the stigma and make students, their families and communities feel more comfortable seeking help. There is an ongoing campaign in Ranchi initiated by psychiatrists of RINPAS focusing on inclusion of mental health paper in school curriculum. They are of the view that since witchcraft and superstitious beliefs in black magic is prevalent in poor tribal families, understanding the difference between treatment of mental disorders by Ojhas/Sorceres and medical professionals is need of hour for the students. According to professionals, every mental health curriculum should incorporate the following characteristics: 1.The curriculum should be culturally sensitive; community and parents should participate in its planning and introduction2.Skills should be presented consistently (across classrooms and grades) in a sequenced, coordinated, and developmentally appropriate way. 3.The curriculum should be seen as equal in importance to other subjects. Studies (2015) show that the schools with such curriculum demonstrate the best result. School-based mental health education improves academic performance, reduces behavior problems, improve school climate and, most importantly, saves lives.Views are personal only.(Ritika Goyal is a student at National University of Study and Research in Law (NUSRL), Ranchi, Jharkhand) Next Storylast_img read more
