Media mavens hog top spots in list of girl power

first_imgTHE BBC’S Woman’s Hour Power List was released yesterday, and among the politicians, musicians and CEOs forging a path for powerful ladies across the country, half of the finalists were media people themselves.The power list, announced on BBC Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, recognises women who have climbed the ladder, broken the glass ceiling and influenced the British public. Although SNP leader Nicola Sturgeon was crowned the UK’s most influential woman, joining her in the top ten were a crop of media professionals, including American Vogue editor Anna Wintour (no. 2), Guardian editor Kath Viner (no. 4), ex-Times and Sunday Times journalist Camilla Cavendish (no. 5) and Economist editor Zanny Minton Beddoes (no. 9). The only chief executive on the list is Karen Blackett, running media marketing firm MediaCom.

Need a good night’s rest? Choose therapy over pills, doctors group says

first_img By Andrew Joseph May 2, 2016 Reprints HealthNeed a good night’s rest? Choose therapy over pills, doctors group says Psychotherapy, not drugs, is the best way to treat insomnia, according to new guidelines. APStock Put down the sleeping pills and pick up that sleep diary.According to new guidelines released Monday from the American College of Physicians, chronic insomnia should not be treated with drugs like Ambien or Lunesta, but instead with a specially designed form of psychotherapy known as CBT-I, which blends talk therapy and sleep tutorials, and has been shown to help a majority of patients recover some normalcy in their sleep quality and duration.Both meds and psychotherapy can improve sleep, the ACP said, but drugs come with a range of side effects — including next-day drowsiness and other problems that send tens of thousands of Americans to the emergency room each year. Drugs also aren’t recommended for long-term use.advertisement @DrewQJoseph Please enter a valid email address. Psychotherapy by emoji: Mental health community wrestles with texting But drugs are easy to come by since any physician can write a prescription for a sleeping aid. CBT-I, by comparison, typically requires a trained clinician, of which there are few in even the country’s biggest cities — which could make it hard for the nation to wean itself off prescription sleeping pills and adopt psychotherapy.The ACP recommendation, which was published in the journal Annals of Internal Medicine, applies only to adults with chronic insomnia, defined as sleep problems that cause distress or impairment, and that occur at least three times a week for at least three months. The physician group also issued a second, “weak” recommendation that doctors should talk with patients about incorporating drugs into their treatment if CBT-I doesn’t work alone.advertisement Tags drugsinsomniasleep CBT-I, which is short for cognitive behavioral therapy for insomnia, works by changing insomniacs’ behaviors and thoughts about sleep and what they do during their waking hours, with a treatment plan tailor made for each patient.Some of the steps at first seem counterintuitive. If you’re exhausted from months of bad sleeping, for example, don’t try to go to bed earlier. Instead, if you can only sleep for five hours and want to get up at 6 a.m., avoid your bed until 1 a.m.Patients also keep sleep logs and will typically become more fatigued in the initial steps of the treatment. Some patients and even doctors are also resistant to the idea of going to therapy for a sleep problem.“We’re still on the cusp of getting people to understand that, ‘Hey, the proper treatment for you might be seeing a psychologist,’” said Mark Gorman, director of behavioral sleep medicine at Massachusetts General Hospital. But Cormier also spent about five months going to sessions with a sleep psychologist.“It’s not easy, and it’s not an instant fix,” he said. “It requires a huge time commitment.”Cormier lives in Boston, so he was able to find a therapist trained specifically in CBT-I. But according to Perlis, even many large cities don’t have clinicians trained in behavioral sleep medicine and four states — New Hampshire, Hawaii, South Dakota, and Wyoming — have no such providers at all.The ACP guidelines say that CBT-I can be offered in a primary care setting and that patients can use online and phone-based methods, as well as self-help books. Some studies have found that these other strategies can be somewhat helpful, but some apps, including one designed by the Department of Veterans Affairs and Stanford University researchers, are meant to be used by patients working with a clinician.“Anything is better than nothing,” said Dr. Josna Adusumilli, a neurologist at MGH focused on sleep disorders. “Obviously, having a meeting with a sleep psychologist in person is the gold standard, but if that’s not possible, an online program would be a good choice.” Newsletters Sign up for Morning Rounds Your daily dose of news in health and medicine.

About the Author Reprints Privacy Policy Leave this field empty if you’re human: The treatment can take weeks, but, experts said, it provides lessons and techniques that patients can apply after they stop going to sessions to address future sleep problems.“No medication on this planet can do that,” said Michael Perlis, director of the behavioral sleep medicine program at the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine.John Cormier, 56, started receiving CBT-I last year after 25 years of sleeping problems and a desire to give up medications. During the treatment, he would give himself 30 minutes to fall asleep. If he was still awake, he made himself get up and go do something else for 30 minutes before trying again. He repeated the pattern if sleep didn’t come.“I had a few nights of almost sleepless nights,” he said. “It brought me back to my days in college.”After some time, however, Cormier started to see progress. He can now typically get more than 6 1/2 hours of quality sleep and hasn’t taken sleep medication since last summer. Related:last_img read more

Trumera settled quickly too though and two quick frees from Niall Sinnott, as well as a point from Rhys Murphy, saw them into an early lead.Liam O’Connell and Cathal Brophy traded points as both sets of forwards gained the upper hand. The game would tighten up for a few minutes, until Ray Bowe fired over from close range to get the ball rolling again.Niall Sinnott responded with two more frees to put Trumera ahead before the water break.At the resumption Rathdowney-Errill came out strong and Paddy Hassett pointed two frees. Liam O’Connell was causing severe problems and he fired into the top corner to give Rathdowney-Erill the lead once more. They would never give it up for the remainder of the game.Eoin Burke and Ray Bowe were dominating puckouts at this stage and the scores kept coming off of them. Trumera were relying heavily on Sinnott from placed balls as he pointed the last point of the half. Rathdowney-Errill led 1-11 to 0-10 at half-time.The free flowing hurling in the first half was nowhere to be seen at the start of the second half. It was Rathdowney-Errill’s ability to score under pressure that kept them in front and four points in as many minutes from Hassett (2), Burke and Bowe saw them stretch their lead.Once again however, Trumera responded well before the water break. Conor Madden fired a 21 yard free high into the net to leave four between the sides with 15 to go.Despite this momentum change, Rathdowney-Erril fought on and a quick attack from one end of the field to the other finished with Ray Bowe stitching the ball into the Trumera net. He soon added two more points on the run from 50 yards to calm his sides nerves.A fabulous late goal from a tight angle from Madden gave Trumera a fighting chance but Rathdowney-Errill finished the game with three frees from Hassett (2) and Campion to finish deserved seven point winners.SCORERS – Rathdowney-Errill: Ray Bowe 1-5, Paddy Hassett 0-7 (seven frees), Liam O’Connell 1-3, Eoin Burke 0-3, Jordi Kavanagh 0-2, Brian Campion 0-1 (free), Willie Delaney 0-1.

N. Korea tries to rouse anti-defector sentiments during lectures

first_imgAs large-scale demonstrations condemning leaflets sent over the inter-Korean border have taken place in North Korea, local officials throughout the country have been conducting lectures aimed at rousing deep hostility toward defectors, Daily NK has learned. “Recently, there have been almost daily meetings and lectures about traitors sending propaganda leaflets from South Korea,” a Ryanggang Province-based source told Daily NK on June 15. “The speakers are going as far as mentioning specific names and making inflammatory statements about ‘punishing [defectors] in the name of the people.’”“Rumors are spreading among the people about [the authorities] sending some kind of special forces contingent to South Korea,” the source added.HARMING THE “GREATEST DIGNITY”Defectors are treated as traitors and turncoats in North Korea and they commonly feature in lectures for the general population. The tone used in recent lectures, however, is slightly different compared to the past, according to the source.  “In the past, the rhetoric adopted [by the authorities] was ‘those who have left paradise on earth (North Korea) are all traitors, so they should be punished,’ but they are arguing that [actions by defectors] are harming the ‘greatest dignity’ [North Korean leader Kim Jong Un],” the source told Daily NK. “The crux of the message is that the [defectors] must be punished.” This approach appears to reflect the Kim Jong Un-style philosophy that if defectors do not harm the “greatest dignity,” the regime will not take issue with them. Contrary to North Korean media reports, most North Koreans do not routinely speak ill of defectors or refer to them as “national traitors” or “human trash.” In fact, the source told Daily NK that some North Koreans refer to defectors as part of the “Mt. Halla range,” reflecting the fact that the families of defectors tend to be well-off financially.In fact, many North Koreans are struggling to understand why the authorities are suddenly taking issue with the propaganda leaflets, which suggests that the recent anti-South Korean demonstrations led by the government are not very persuasive. “In the past, a lot of propaganda leaflets came over from South Korea, but there are not so many these days. Many people wonder why [the authorities] are suddenly making such a big deal about it,” the source told Daily NK. “They suspect that the communist party is causing an uproar about the leaflets as a pretext for using the South Korean government to achieve some goal,” he added. In other words, at least some North Koreans believe that the government has a political motivation to ramp up criticism of South Korea.Many North Koreans have also become curious about what is written on the propaganda leaflets, the source said. “People want to see the leaflets for themselves to find out what caused such a dramatic response from the government,” the source explained. While North Korean officials claim that the leaflets “are an affront to the greatest dignity and criticize our sacred nuclear weapons,” Daily NK understands that they have not publicly released any specific information about the format or content of the leaflets. LITTLE HOPE FOR THE FUTUREThe hard-line stance adopted by the regime towards South Korea has also dampened hopes for inter-Korean cooperation among the people, the source further reported. “[The government] is set to raise the atmosphere of confrontation toward South Korea for the time being,” the source said.“[Kim] may have climbed to the top of Mt. Paekdu alongside the South Korean president [two years ago], but hopes for immediate unification already disappeared a long time ago,” he added. Please direct any comments or questions about this article to [email protected] in Korean News News News TAGSDefectorspropagandaleaflets SHARE Facebook Twittercenter_img Hamhung man arrested for corruption while working at a state-run department store North Korea Market Price Update: June 8, 2021 (Rice and USD Exchange Rate Only) AvatarSeulkee JangSeulkee Jang is one of Daily NK’s full-time journalists.

Five banks fail Fed ‘stress tests’

first_img Higher gas costs led to increase in U.S. consumer prices in March Keywords United StatesCompanies Federal Reserve Board Share this article and your comments with peers on social media The firms rejected for qualitative reasons include Citigroup Inc.; HSBC North America Holdings Inc.; RBS Citizens Financial Group, Inc.; and Santander Holdings USA, Inc. It also objected to the capital plan of Zions Bancorporation because the firm did not meet the minimum, post-stress tier-1 common ratio. The Fed’s review of banks’ capital plans evaluates the capital planning processes and capital adequacy of the largest banks, including their proposed capital actions such as dividend payments and share buybacks and issuances. It considers both qualitative and quantitative factors, including a firm’s capital ratios under severe economic and financial market stress, and the strength of the firm’s capital planning process. In the case of Citi, its plan included a US$6.4 billion common stock repurchase program through the first quarter of 2015 and an increase of its quarterly dividend to 5¢. The bank said that it will be permitted to continue with its current capital actions through the first quarter of 2015, including a $1.2 billion common stock repurchase program and a common stock dividend of 1¢ per share per quarter. “Needless to say, we are deeply disappointed by the Fed’s decision regarding the additional capital actions we requested. The additional capital actions represented a modest level of capital return and still allowed Citi to exceed the required threshold on a quantitative basis,” said Michael Corbat, Citi’s CEO. “We will continue to work closely with the Fed to better understand their concerns so that we can bring our capital planning process in line with their expectations and meet their standards on a qualitative basis as well. We have not yet made a decision as to when we will resubmit our plan,” he said. The Fed notes that U.S. firms have substantially increased their capital since the first set of government stress tests in 2009, and that trend is expected to continue.

The new Ford F-150 will allegedly beat the 2020 Bronco to market

first_img advertisement There are rumours swirling in Ford-land that may spell good news for F-150 lovers.Off-Road.com claims to have laid their hands on a Ford product timeline outlining some upcoming releases, namely those of the Explorer, F-Series and Bronco, which will allegedly be introduced “in that order.” The takeaway here is exciting for anyone anticipating the arrival of the new F-Series, as it suggests the Ford pickups will be pulling into dealerships sooner than expected. ‹ Previous Next › Trending Videos Working backwards with official (if soft) dates given by Ford, that means the F-150 will be available in 2020 at the latest, because that’s when the Bronco is slated to arrive. And following that same train of thought, with the Explorer due in the spring of 2019, that puts the F-150’s due date into further focus. If this timeline is to be believed, smart money is on a 2020 F-150 landing in late 2019. Will it be an all-new generation or just a retouched and retweaked update of the current gen? That’s not clear from the timeline and Ford has kept a tight lid on things, so we’ll have to wait for the next leaked document.

Thailand rejects AIS offer, to hold re-auction in May

The Post reported True CFO Noppadol Dej-Udom as saying the re-auction can expect serious competition between AIS and dtac, leading to higher bidding prices. He didn’t say if True plans to participate.NBTC’s draft rules had barred True, which won spectrum in both the 900MHz and 1.8GHz bands last year, from participating, but the government said all operators can join except for Jas Mobile.Next month’s re-auction will have a reserve price of THB75.65 billion, the winning bid by Jas Mobile, which forfeited the 4G licence last month when it couldn’t meet the payment schedule.The prime minister is expected to approve the updated draft rules today.
