20 Global Indians: Riding the new wave

A year that witnessed immense churn-social, technological and political-has been an unsettling one for the global order and, by extension, for the personalities that stride the corridors of power, whether in Silicon Valley, Washington DC or Whitehall.Great strides have been made in the tech world this past year, especially in new fields such as Artificial Intelligence. Yet, it has been a public debate on privacy and the manipulation of technology, for instance, to disseminate fake news, that has dominated our attention. And two tech giants, with two global Indians at the helm, have been at the centre of the debate.The political churn has seen its own contradictions. Growing anti-immigrant and anti-globalisation sentiment has seen the rise of new immigrant political voices. The daughter of Punjabi immigrants has cemented her place as one of the most influential players in a White House that has openly spoken of curtailing opportunities for Indian immigrants, while a junior Senator from California cemented her emergence as a rising star for the Democratic nomination in 2020. Increasingly, global Indians are finding themselves on both sides of the debate, defying both stereotype and convention. Their voices are having an ever greater say in resolving the big questions of our time.#1 Sundar Pichai, 45, CEO, Google Inc.Future clickGoogle CEO Sundar PichaiBecause he has become the most coveted tech CEO in the world, with his humility and foresight leaving him fortified against the global anger being aimed at the hubris of Silicon Valley’s giants (we’re looking at you, Mark Zuckerberg)advertisementBecause last year he bet big on Artificial Intelligence-which he declared would be a more disruptive invention “than fire or electricity”-and positioned Google to become the world’s leader in AI, from self-driving cars to machine learningBecause he has shown Silicon Valley and Corporate America that you don’t need to be arrogant to be successfulFighting fake news – Google and YouTube haven’t been entirely shielded from the public anger on internet sites spreading fake news.

Caribbean Countries Receive US8 Million to Reduce Health Risks from Toxic Chemicals

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppPort of Spain, Trinidad and Tobago. 5November, 2016 –  Exposure to toxic chemicals found in household cleaning products, processed foods and even clothing can severely damage a person’s health. Dr. Ahmad Khan, Director, Basel Convention Regional Centre for Training and Technology Transfer for the Caribbean (BCRC-Caribbean) stated that some pesticides, cleaning agents and industrial chemicals contain hazardous properties, which can cause cancer, developmental delays, dysfunction of the reproductive organs and reduce immunity.Dr Khan explained that one particular group of these toxic chemicals is referred to as Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPS). He added that exposure to POPS can be through direct contact with the chemicals, consumption of contaminated foods or environmental exposure (by air, water and soil). In light of this, Dr Khan emphasized the need for the Caribbean region to make the management of toxic chemicals to protect human health and the environment a priority.Recognizing the importance of this issue, the BCRC-Caribbean, in collaboration with the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), prepared a project document outlining the work required to strengthen the capacity of Caribbean countries to manage POPS. They also approached the Global Environment Facility (GEF) and were successful in acquiring approximately US$8 million dollars to support the project. The Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) will implement the necessary activities to assist eight (8) Caribbean territories update their National Implementation Plans (NIPs) for POPS management, which includes the conduct of in-country POPs inventories and related capacity development.Dr. Khan said “The BCRC-Caribbean is committed to deliver services to our member Parties under the four ‘chemicals’ Conventions (Basel, Rotterdam, Stockholm, Minamata) that govern the environmentally sound management of hazardous wastes and chemicals. Through the successful implementation of this regional project, we will be able to establish the extent of new POPs in our countries and more importantly develop Action Plans to target the elimination and/or reduction in the use of these particularly harmful chemicals.”CARPHA Executive Director, Dr. C. James Hospedales, also pledged his commitment to reducing the Region’s risk. He said “The execution of this project will help strengthen the capacities of Member States to better manage hazardous chemicals with a view to implementing environmentally sound mechanisms for the storage, abandonment of use, identification of alternatives to use and final disposal/destruction of these types of chemicals.”In addition, the BCRC-Caribbean will host a Regional Workshop from November 8-10, 2016 in Trinidad and Tobago to initiate an update of the participating countries’ NIPs, POPs inventories and related capacity development. During the workshop, conducted by CARPHA, country representatives will present an update on the status of implementation of their NIP Action Plans.The regional representatives will receive training on the assessment of ‘new’ POPs. CARPHA experts will follow up the workshop by assisting investigations in each participating country to update the NIPs.Countries benefitting from this project are Antigua and Barbuda, Barbados, Belize, Saint Kitts and Nevis, Saint Lucia, Saint Vincent and the Grenadines, Suriname and Trinidad and Tobago. Related Items: Background The Stockholm Convention on Persistent Organic Pollutants (POPs) is a global treaty to protect human health and the environment from chemicals that remain intact in the environment for long periods, become widely distributed geographically, accumulate in the fatty tissue of humans and wildlife, and have harmful impacts on human health or on the environment.The Basel Convention on the Control of Transboundary Movements of Hazardous Wastes and their Disposal is the most comprehensive global environmental treaty on hazardous and other wastes. It aims to protect human health and the environment against the adverse effects resulting from the generation, management, transboundary movements and disposal of hazardous and other wastes.The Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) is the Region’s collective response to strengthening and reorienting our health system approach to address the changing nature of public health challenges.center_img Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Mourinho is slowly recovering Manchester United

first_imgWith another steady performance at Bournemouth, Jose Mourinho is slowly taking back Manchester United’s real level of performance.It appears that the start of the season for Manchester United is slowly turning into a thing of the past to Jose Mourinho and his players, the Red Devils proved today that they are back in a positive dynamic with their performance at Bournemouth.Pretty much all the players who had been struggling this season, were the ones who delivered on the promise that they would massively improve their game.Even Alexis Sanchez was great today and he was the most criticized player until now, we are going to have to dissect the individual performances of several players because they have completely changed the switch and they should arrive at the Manchester Derby with great confidence.The best player for United was French winger Anthony Martial, he has taken over the leading role in the team’s offensive moments and he shared it with Alexis Sanchez today.Both players had been extremely criticized this season because they didn’t start on a very good note, today’s performance was a vindication of their talent and proof that Jose Mourinho has recovered both in the team’s benefit for the rest of the season.The squad was even capable of coming back from an initial negative result, as the Cherries scored first through [email protected], @AnthonyMartial, @MarcusRashford and @LukeShaw23 are today’s #MUFC Man of the Match nominees!🗳️ Vote now in our official app: https://t.co/glfzTiLXYO pic.twitter.com/pFtoRI31qw— Manchester United (@ManUtd) November 3, 2018But that goal was one of the few good moments that Bournemouth had, Manchester United dominated throughout the rest of the game and were brilliant up front with all the players who came to Vitality Stadium quite inspired.Martial was the one who scored the equalizer before halftime, he did it after Alexis Sanchez sent a cross from the right wing and struck the ball low for his goal.Getting that result wasn’t going to be an easy task for the Mancunians, they were always dangerous up front through Paul Pogba’s inspired night but the Cherries defense proved that they wouldn’t give away the result so easily.Alexis kept the role as the player who pulled back all the defenders with his movements, something that gave the rest of the strikers a little more freedom, especially during the second half as the Red Devils improved vastly thanks to Jose Mourinho’s modifications as the clock kept ticking.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…Pogba understood that he was going to have to keep the ball through more prolonged moments of the game, he was able to read the game and was able to lead his teammates to complete dominance during the second half.The sensation after Marcus Rashford and Ander Herrera got in the game during the final 35 minutes of the game, was that Manchester United would win the game.We’re #MUFC – we fight until the end 👊 pic.twitter.com/x5F46GXwOi— Manchester United (@ManUtd) November 3, 2018The crucial moment of the night came until the very last minute, Manchester United never surrendered and was able to take the pressure in without letting Bournemouth breathe after every single ball they lost.The final play came from a beautiful cross that Paul Pogba got on the box with a soft elevated ball, both Martial and Rashford were waiting inside the box with many Cherries’ defenders covering them.The English forward was the lucky one who got to score the winning goal, he could strike a loose ball inside the box and buried the ball that gave Manchester United those three points that leaves them with 20 on the table and still with a great opportunity to fight for the title.With this victory, the Red Devils remain only six points behind leaders Manchester City only one week before the Manchester Derby at Etihad Stadium.However, Pep Guardiola’s side could still move 9 points past United if they beat Southampton this Sunday.It’s exciting to know that Jose Mourinho’s squad is slightly recovered from the poor form they were showing a few weeks ago, they will at least try to compete against the Citizens and maybe even get a positive result if they are lucky next week.Man. Like. Rashford. #MUFC #BOUMUN pic.twitter.com/MKBBwZrDzH— Manchester United (@ManUtd) November 3, 2018How would you qualify Manchester Unite’s performance at Bournemouth this Saturday?

Tedesco not thinking about Augsburg clash

first_imgSchalke 04 manager Domenico Tedesco insists his focus is on the game against Lokomotiv Moscow rather the weekend’s game against Augsburg.Tedesco insists rotating his team wouldn’t make the game unimportant, even though Schalke have already secured a place in the second round:“We need a certain freshness, the boys have put a lot in. We definitely want to win the game, and the Augsburg game on Saturday isn’t playing a role. We’ve got enough time to freshen up before then.” Tedesco said according to the club’s official website.Speaking about the club’s loss to rivals Borussia Dortmund:“Every defeat hurts, but a derby loss hurts even more. I have to be the engine and push the boys. We have to roll up our sleeves and go full throttle,” said Tedesco.Report: UEFA Champions League group D George Patchias – August 29, 2019 Champions League group D may not be the group of death but it is too close to call.UEFA.com officially announced Champions League group D…He also added that the criticism of his team following their poor start to the Bundesliga season: “We have to accept our current situation and I’ll face that.”The game on Tuesday will also have more significance, as Schalke face two former players.“The fans haven’t forgotten Jefferson Farfan and Benedikt Höwedes’ performances. I’m sure that it’ll be nice for the two of them as well. Höwedes was captain and an outstanding player for years. Farfan was a very strong finisher. We have to try to defend against them as well as possible,” added Tedesco.Tedesco also spoke about how strong Lokomotiv Moscow are defensive: “They defended well and were very focused on not letting anything happen. We have to be just as good as we were in this game, if not better.”last_img read more
