BorderCrossing Minors Arrive at Holloman AFB

first_img Dan Cohen AUTHOR About 250 unaccompanied children caught crossing the United States’ southern border arrived at Holloman Air Force Base in south central New Mexico earlier this week.This first group of children taken to Holloman are part of the latest surge of undocumented minors fleeing gang violence in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras. A total of 700 children will be temporarily housed in a vacant building previously used by the 4th Space Surveillance Squadron, reported the Alamogordo Daily News.Defense Secretary Ash Carter directed Holloman to be the first of three temporary shelters to open at DOD facilities; the other two are in Florida and Colorado. Last week, Defense Communities 360 reported the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) is assessing the viability of six bases for use as a temporary shelter for unaccompanied children: Maxwell-Gunter Air Force Base (Gunter Annex), Ala.; Tyndall AFB, Fla.; Grand Forks AFB, N.D.; Naval Support Activity Philadelphia, Pa.; Hanscom AFB, Mass.; and Travis AFB, Calif.The children will stay at Holloman for 32 days on average and are between the ages of 14 and 17, with HHS responsible for their well-being, Mike Espiritu, president of the Alamogordo Chamber of Commerce, told the paper. The children will receive schooling and medical care from HHS contractors.“They won’t be here a long time, [with] no impact on our schools, Holloman, or our community,” Espiritu said.last_img read more

APNORC Poll Americans Open To Trumps Planned North Korea Talks

first_imgAhn Young-joon/APA man at the Seoul, South Korea, train station last August watches a news program featuring President Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.Americans appear open to President Donald Trump’s surprise decision to negotiate directly with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, and at the same time are less concerned than in recent months by the threat posed by the pariah nation’s nuclear weapons.That’s according to a new poll from The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research, taken after Trump agreed to what would be unprecedented meeting between a U.S. and a North Korean leader.North Korea has yet to publicly confirm plans for the summit, slated for May, but the poll results suggest its potential has eased fears of war that intensified last year as the North made rapid strides in its nuclear and missile capabilities.“If you sit down and talk over any matter, there can be a resolution to it without starting a war,” said Sarah Dobbs, a 64-year-old retiree from Norman, Oklahoma, who described herself as a Democrat and is among the 48 percent of Americans who favor Trump’s plan to talk with Kim.“No other president has ever done something this bold. That’s why I think: Why not let Trump have at it?” she said.The poll found that 29 percent oppose the plans for talks between the two nations, while 21 percent say they’re neither in favor nor opposed.The survey also found an uptick in approval of Trump’s handling of relations with North Korea as the focus has shifted from possible U.S. military action to diplomacy. That figure is now 42 percent, up from 34 percent last October amid a coarse back and forth between the two leaders.Last September, Trump dubbed Kim “Rocket Man” and threatened to “totally destroy” North Korea. Kim responded with threats and insults of his own, calling Trump “deranged” and a “dotard.” North Korea’s foreign minister suggested that it might conduct an atmospheric nuclear test in the Pacific — a threat it hasn’t followed through on.Since then, the proportion of Americans who say they’re very or extremely concerned about the nuclear threat North Korea poses to the U.S. has dropped to 50 percent from 67 percent. It’s a decline that registered with both Republicans and Democrats. Americans also see the threat as having lessened for U.S. allies Japan and South Korea, as well as U.S. overseas territories such as Guam.Trump agreed to talk after Kim conveyed through South Korean intermediaries an offer to discuss “denuclearization” and halt nuclear and missile tests. South Korea’s leader is due to have his own summit with Kim in April.Americans are divided over the potential goals of U.S. discussions with North Korea. Forty-four percent say the North must completely give up its nukes, the long-standing goal of U.S. policy. Forty percent think the U.S. should consider a deal if the North agrees to make progress toward that goal.Only 13 percent think the country shouldn’t consider a deal with North Korea at all.“I would like to see a denuclearization of North Korea, but I don’t know how feasible that is,” said Aaron Saunders, a 26-year-old medical research associate from Three Rivers, Michigan, who was generally supportive of Trump’s handling of the issue — aside from his tweeting.Theresa Ferraro, 71, of Lowell, Massachusetts, said a summit might make the world safer, but she questioned the president’s temperament for negotiations.“He speaks out too much,” she said. “I’m outspoken myself, but you gotta know when to zip it and I don’t think he knows.”Despite the general openness toward negotiations with North Korea, Americans have mixed views about the direction of U.S. national security. One in three say that it will get better over the next year. Similar proportions say it will get worse and stay about the same.But there are clearer differences on partisan lines. Two-thirds of Republicans expect national security to improve, while a slightly smaller proportion of Democrats expect it to get worse in the year ahead.Americans have largely negative views about how the U.S. is viewed around the world. Some 53 percent think respect for American will decline in the next ahead, with just 26 percent expecting it to improve. And 48 percent think U.S. influence around the world will decline in the next year, compared with just 27 percent who believe it will get better.Pamela Williams, 69, of New York City, criticized Trump for boasting about U.S. military strength and having what she saw as flippant attitude to matters of war and peace.“I have not seen anything that he’s done since taking office that he’s taken seriously. Everything is a joke to him,” she said. Sharelast_img read more

Nothing left but gratitude for the chef.I’m trying to feed you with whatever I got.Like my ancestors before me, you can find me by the fire.I’m cooking poems on stoves, I simmer the similes like onions with sugar,I want this story to caramelize naturally.I tell stories in your stomachI tell stories which are really just recipesfor how to create joy when I feel empty insideAs you listen to me explain how to properly cookbone-in chicken in a cast-iron skillet,know the truth is my favorite flavor.If I misspeak, it only means I changed the recipe mid-sentence.Can I tell you a secret?I need love like olive oil.The first thing my mother and grandmother dowhen I am home is ask if I am hungry.Of course, I say yes.Of course, my eyes are bigger than my stomach.So I open my stomach like a sentence I wish to re-write.I don’t always know what I wish to change, my appetite or the recipe.When I can’t stand the cold emptiness of indecision,I stand up in the heat of the kitchen.I open the fridge like a dictionary.Language, my ultimate box of mystery ingredients.Every plate is a page I am not afraid to shareI don’t always have a lot, but I got enough to make it through breakfast.I’m hungry, but sometimes, I leave my voice in the oven.I buy fresh fruit because I want to learn how to be useful before I too begin to rot. I use my knife to carve meaning clean from the bone.I plate the truth with purpose.If you’re still hungry, there are plenty of seconds. 00:00 /07:15 Sharelast_img read more

Exercise may cut gestational diabetes risk in obese women

first_imgObese women are at increased risk of complications during pregnancy, the most common of which are gestational diabetes, high blood pressure, a large increase in weight as well as pre-eclampsia.“It’s important to reduce obesity-related pregnancy complications because they can have long-term consequences for both the mother and her child,” said a researcher from the Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) in Trondheim, Norway.Obese mothers are also at an increased risk of needing a caesarean section and giving birth to large babies. These complications can have a great impact on the health of both mother and child, not just during pregnancy, but also later in life, the researchers said. The findings showed that the amount of exercise needed to reduce the risk of gestational diabetes is not very high. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“That meant that even a little training during pregnancy can be beneficial,” said Kirsti Krohn Garnæs, doctoral candidate at NTNU. Further, women who followed the exercise regimen also showed lower blood pressure towards the end of their pregnancy.Women in the exercise group were invited to three weekly supervised sessions of 60 minutes throughout the course of their pregnancy. The training consisted of 35 minutes of moderate intensity treadmill walking and 25 minutes of strength training. The control group was given standard prenatal care. Of these, only two in the exercise group versus nine in the control group developed gestational diabetes.last_img read more
