  5. Singapore announced on Tuesday tighter curbs on social gatherings and stricter border measures after recording locally acquired cases of coronavirus variants, including a more contagious strain first detected in India. After reporting very few local infections for months, numbers have increased in the Asian trade and financial hub over the last week, mainly linked to an outbreak at a hospital. On Tuesday, it confirmed five new locally acquired cases. The stricter measures, which will be effective from May 8, include extending checks on where incoming travellers have been to three weeks earlier, instead of two weeks currently. All visitors with a recent travel history in higher risk countries and who arrive from Saturday onwards will also need to be ini quarantine for 21 days, instead of 14. Social gathering will also be limited to five people, while indoor gyms and fitness studios will be shut. The new measures amount to the tightest local restrictions since Singapore started easing curbs in the middle of last year after a partial lockdown. Among infections detected in the latest COVID-19 cluster in a hospital, nine out of 40 cases had already been fully vaccinated. "Because of vaccination, these cases are either asymptomatic or had mild symptoms, and none has required oxygen so far," said health minister Gan Kim Yong. "Therefore vaccination remains an important tool to help lower the risk of infection and severe disease," he said. The minister also said authorities could not rule out a return to a partial lockdown again, if the situation worsened. Though Singapore's daily cases are only a fraction of the number being reported among Singapore's Southeast Asian neighbours, a jump in infections would be a setback for the Asian business hub, which has successfully contained its earlier outbreaks.

  6. An approximately $7.8 million gift from the Windgate Foundation to the University of Arkansas at Fort Smith will support new art initiatives, including a residency program, and also create an endowment to help students with high financial need. The Windgate Foundation earlier provided a $15.5 million grant to build the campus art building that opened in 2015. The most recent grant will expand opportunities for budding artists and other students, UAFS leaders said Monday. "It opens up access in a really exciting way," said Katie Waugh, head of the UAFS Art Department. Support from a new, approximately $4 million endowment will go to students regardless of major. The aim is to bridge the gap for students who have unmet financial needs after qualifying for Pell Grants, a type of federal financial aid reserved for students with exceptional need. "This is a tremendous opportunity to bring a college education within reach for so many UAFS Lions," Chancellor Terisa Riley said in a statement. The endowment will be set up to cover tuition and mandatory fees for the roughly 150 students yearly at UAFS who qualify for Pell Grants but are not receiving the state's lottery scholarships or certain other types of aid, officials said. "It takes a huge burden off of students who maybe don't have access to much in financial resources and maybe have exhausted their options," Waugh said, adding that she hopes the new fund will lead to growth in her department. The grant also includes $394,000 for academic programs and $240,000 to begin a new artist-in-residency program. Waugh said the first residency will start in the upcoming school year. "It really is a way to demonstrate how to make a life in the arts," Waugh said. The new grant money will also create some financial opportunities for art students through support for paid internships, Waugh said. "Students will get paid for internship work they do or projects they do for the community, things that maybe in the past they would have been asked to do for experience," Waugh said. The grant includes $120,000 to support stipends for student artists and designers, Waugh said. Aleah Cherry, 21, a studio art major set to graduate in December, said that "a lot of students who come to UAFS obviously come because it's more affordable" compared with other universities. Cherry, a muralist who works under the name Aleah Renea, added that "from completely a learning standpoint, all of the professors who teach here are so qualified." She said she's been fortunate to work with well-known artists and have her own work exhibited while establishing herself as an artist. Cherry said she hopes the grant money "will give more students in the future these same opportunities that I was very lucky to have and make it a more consistent opportunity for all students." Economic support is an important factor in diversifying college art programs, said James Haywood Rolling Jr., president of the National Art Education Association. "Because of the lingering effects of systemic barriers to both wealth creation and higher education rooted in generations of racial bias throughout the history of our nation, need-based scholarship support for families of color is a critical element of any forward-thinking strategy for increasing equity and inclusion in the arts and other creative professions," Rolling, an arts education professor at Syracuse University, said in an email. Waugh said the Art Department at UAFS this past fall had a greater share of students from underrepresented racial and ethnic groups than the campus as a whole, but statistics were not available Monday. In fall 2019, a total of 80 students were graphic design majors and 35 were majoring in studio art. Waugh said those totals were similar this past fall, though perhaps down a bit. Not including dually enrolled high school students, the campus had an enrollment of about 4,700 students this past fall, according to state data. "For people who are disproportionately impacted by socioeconomic injustice, something like this could help," Waugh said. Waugh joined UAFS last year. She said that while the pandemic has limited the amount of time she's spent with students, they refer to the school's affordability and the Windgate Art and Design building as some of the reasons why they chose to enroll and study art. The Windgate Foundation's most recent grant includes $2.8 million for the three-level building's facility endowment. The foundation is based in Little Rock. "It remains a real centerpiece and an important fixture on our campus. It really elevates and validates the efforts that our students put into their studies," Waugh said. Source
  7. Public health advocates who expect COVID-19 vaccines to become available for younger teens soon are concerned that a government-led distribution effort that may rely in large part on pediatricians could create glaring inequalities among children. With only three months before the next school year starts in some areas, advocates are calling on the Biden administration to develop a more detailed outreach strategy, encourage schools to offer shots and provide more funding to get kids vaccinated. Distributing vaccines to kids will likely present many of the same challenges that plagued the United States’ efforts to vaccinate adults, experts say, including issues with equity, access and skepticism. Kids’ dependence on adults adds another layer of complexity that could make vaccinating them even more difficult. But the Biden administration has not yet released a plan to get kids vaccinated, which public health experts call a problem. “Vaccinating kids is going to look very different from vaccinating adults. They need a plan tailored to them that’s specific to them and to their needs,” said Averi Pakulis, vice president for early childhood and public health policy at the First Focus on Children advocacy group. Experts anticipate the shot will be available to young teens in May or June. Those working on the ground are waiting to see formal guidance from the Biden administration. “We have to start talking about it. Getting kids vaccinated, getting adolescents vaccinated is the next big frontier,” said Claire Hannan, executive director of the Association of Immunization Managers. A central concern is how to ensure that minorities have opportunities to get vaccinated. The virus is already disproportionately hurting kids in communities of color. Black and Hispanic children under age 14 are both 3.3 times more likely to die of COVID-19 compared with white children the same age, according to data from the COVKID Project. Sara Bode, a member of the American Academy of Pediatrics’ Council on School Health, said the AAP plans to soon release recommendations about setting up COVID-19 vaccination clinics in schools to reach more kids. These recommendations would be made in coordination with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. “You’re going to end up with school districts that have an 80 percent vaccination rate and school districts that have a 10 percent vaccination rate of their student population. And those same school districts that are at the 10 percent are likely the same districts that have struggled to get back to in-person learning,” Bode said, warning about what will happen if vaccines aren’t offered in schools. Black and Hispanic adults are getting vaccinated at a lower rate than white adults, largely because it’s more difficult for them to access a vaccine, not because they are more likely to say no to the shot. These access issues will only be magnified in kids, explained Kelly Murphy, a maternal and child health policy expert with Families USA. “Kids have to rely on their parents, who also may not be able to take off work to get their own vaccine, let alone to then also take their kids another time to get their vaccine. It just kind of creates additional layers of barriers,” Murphy said. Debate over distribution This problem will likely be pronounced among children of essential workers and immigrant families and in communities of color. Although health experts say it’s unlikely many public school districts will require the COVID-19 vaccine this school year, they say vaccinating as many students as possible this summer would decrease community spread and help create a more normal school year. Leaving kids unvaccinated could lead to new, more dangerous virus mutations and slow down protections through herd immunity. Already, virus variants are causing more infections in children. States across the country have reported an uptick in pediatric COVID-19 hospitalizations, largely due to the prevalence of the highly contagious B.1.1.7 variant. Offering the vaccines through school clinics as well as other channels could remove obstacles, Bode said. The administration is not telling schools at this point to prepare to offer the shots. When asked about plans for vaccinating children, a White House spokesperson pointed to administration officials’ comments about distributing COVID-19 vaccines to pediatricians. “As it relates to kids, there is a well-established route of vaccinations, through the pediatrician’s office,” Andy Slavitt, the White House senior adviser on the COVID-19 response, said in April. Pediatricians are often a trusted source of health care for children. The Academy of Pediatrics is working to register pediatric practices as COVID-19 vaccine providers and ensure they have the setup to provide vaccines. But relying largely on pediatricians’ offices may not be enough. Some vulnerable populations that don’t often go to their pediatricians will face more challenges. Some schools across the country already have vaccine clinics for students who are 16 to 18, but extending these clinics would take coordination and cooperation from public health departments. Bode said these clinics may require federal funding, but she was unclear on how much. First Focus on Children recently sent a letter to Biden administration officials encouraging them to set aside funds for children’s vaccination, including at places like schools, child care centers, recreation centers and youth sports venues. The recent COVID-19 relief law set aside $20 billion to establish a national vaccination program but does not specifically dedicate funds for pediatric vaccines. The plan also offered nearly $130 billion to help K-12 schools reopen safely, and some experts said they hope that money can go toward vaccination. Convincing parents State laws generally dictate school vaccine requirements. Many colleges are already saying they will require vaccinations for students to return to campus. Public school systems have yet to make decisions, and experts say it’s unlikely the coronavirus shot will be mandated for this school year. Every state requires specific vaccines for students, but the COVID-19 vaccine is more tricky because there is no precedent for requiring an authorized, although not fully approved, vaccine in schools, Hannan noted. The vaccines are not yet authorized for children. Pfizer is the furthest along, and the company said clinical trials proved its two-shot COVID-19 vaccine to be 100 percent effective in kids ages 12 to 15. Moderna and Johnson & Johnson are also testing their COVID-19 vaccines on kids. The Food and Drug Administration has yet to take any action on Pfizer’s request to authorize its COVID-19 vaccine for kids ages 12 to 15, which was submitted on April 9. The agency will not hold a Vaccines and Related Biological Products Advisory Committee meeting before making a decision, as it did with other COVID-19 vaccine authorizations, because this is an already authorized vaccine being considered for a different age group. Paul Offit, a member of that vaccine advisory committee, said recently that he expects the FDA to authorize the vaccine soon and is “not sure what the delay is.” Vaccine-hesitant parents may also be a barrier. Parents who get vaccinated themselves may be reticent to give their children the shot or wait for more information. A recent Parents Together survey found 70 percent of parents plan to get vaccinated, but only 58 percent plan to vaccinate their children. The administration should retool parts of its COVID-19 public education campaign to target parents and caregivers once the vaccine is available to kids, Pakulis suggested. Much of that messaging could happen locally in pediatricians’ offices or schools. “That should be happening as soon as possible. Now is not too soon. ... You also don’t convince parents in a day, right? It’s going to take more work than that,” Pakulis said. Source
  8. Students, teachers and parents look ahead as senior 4 exams finish You can sense the jubilation at Development Secondary School in Juba as senior four students braced the blistering heat to celebrate the completion of their secondary school examinations. Happy and excited, students jumped with joy after dusting the last examination paper- the day they have been looking forward to for four years is finally over. The whole school erupted into hugging, cheering, and overall joy, knowing that they can join the university and get their degrees. "The exams were fair, not hard, not easy, but it was fair. It was good enough for us to finish," Daniel Athien (17), a senior 4 student, joyfully expressed after putting down his pencil. "I can't wait to get the results and join the university. I am very excited to enrol for my bachelor's degree in logistics studies; it is so appealing." On 20 March 2020, all schools in South Sudan were closed and almost 2 million children were forced out of classes due to COVID-19 preventive measures. With the academic year cut just six weeks in, many students were worried they would never be able to sit their final exams and finish their education. Students tried to keep learning at home, but Wendy Ahonda (16) explains it was no easy feat. The family noise meant she had to study at a neighbour's house or wait until the nighttime snoring stopped before she could open her books. Lawrence Mathew (15), a senior three student says also he has been struggling; "We have been out of school and idle at home for over a year, sometimes we revise our past lessons, but we are losing hope that our classes will reopen." For Daniel, Wendy and other candidates sitting their final exams in early 2021, education resumed last year in October 2020. “Usually, we look forward to the holidays, but suddenly our holiday became so long," Wendy said. However, catching up on seven months of lost education and preparing for the biggest exam of our lives was stressful. "I am happy that right now, we can study again. My plan for the exam is to study as much as possible, keep on reading every day and hope that I am ready for the examination,” said Daniel, days after returning to school. Both Wendy and Daniel made it through the lessons and were part of the scenes of joy and relief after the last exam was done. "This year is unique; I am proud of all candidates who never experienced school closures before, and despite the pandemic and crazy things happening, reading for exams in a short time. I believe we are going to excel in the exams, and I am glad we have made it," Windy says with a grin. Now, it’s time for Lawrence and the rest of the children to return to school. The Minister of General Education and Instruction (MoGEI) has just announced that all schools in South Sudan will reopen on 3 May 2021. "Overstaying at home is embarrassing us and erasing away the knowledge we acquired from our teachers. I am excited to hear schools will reopen and soon we shall get to reunite with friends and teachers to learn more," Lawrence said. Parents are also thrilled to see their children returning to school. "I am happy that schools are going to reopen. Seeing children at home idle is having a profound negative effect on children, especially girls that are being married off at a tender age," says Nathalina Samuel, a mother of seven children. "When schools reopen, we will notice a reduced number of female students,” she says with sadness in her eyes. Even the teachers are ready to go back to work. Noel Kana is one of them, "I am happy to hear that schools will reopen because being idle is not suitable for learners. Students and pupils learn different things in contrast to what is taught in schools as they are not keen to revise their books; only the reopening of schools can make everything better, and the learning process will resume smoothly.” UNICEF has been one of many strong advocates for the reopening of schools. In South Sudan, schools provide more than just academics. At school, students learn social and emotional skills and it's a safe place for the most vulnerable. Schools protect learners from harmful cultural practices and work as an access point for services including water, sanitation and hygiene and food. UNICEF is working with the Ministry of General Education and Instruction to prepare schools for the reopening and we are excited to note that this year will be the first with the new South Sudan curriculum. UNICEF is thankful for all the support from our trusted Education partners, including Canada, EU/ECHO, Norway, Sweden, the Global Partnership for Education, UKAID and USAID. Source
  9. Coffee is one of the most consumed beverages. They are of different types, which vary depending on their mode of preparation. With the right tools and ingredients, you can also prepare this type of beverage at home or the office. Espresso is one form of coffee with a different mode of preparation and concentration that makes it different from your ordinary cup of coffee. In this preparation mode, the coffee beans are roasted for a more extended period before they are finely ground. It is then brewed under pressure where boiling water is forced through it. You should look for the best espresso machine to prepare this type of coffee. There are different models in the market. Not every model is equally suitable for the preferred method of preparation. You can get an espresso machine with a grinder and others with none. With the vast number of different coffee machines available, the choice can seem overwhelming. The prices of the individual models may vary depending on the functions, so there are a few criteria that you should consider before deciding on a coffee machine. Size Many do not seem to think about this because they are too busy worrying about color, functions, and price. Nevertheless, this plays a significant role because often, you simply don’t have enough space to place a fully automatic coffee machine in your kitchen. A pad or capsule machine, on the other hand, or a simple filter coffee machine can easily be stowed away again after use, and otherwise, these types take up little space. In addition, they tend to be in the lower or middle range in the price range, which is another plus point. Price In addition to the space problem, it also depends on the respective budget and how much you want to spend on it. There are hardly any limits to this. If you wish to and have the financial means, you can definitely buy an elegant model that can cost as much as a used car. Method of Preparation In addition to the first two criteria, there is also a personal preference for the type of preparation because not every machine is equally suitable. A completely normal espresso machine or a fully automatic machine is ideal for heavy drinkers. However, if you are a coffee connoisseur, then you will probably want to treat yourself to a cup of freshly brewed, full-bodied espresso. And this is where opinions differ as to which machine makes the best possible. How Do You Get the Perfect Espresso Machine? The history of espresso is almost as old as that of humankind and goes back to ancient Ethiopia, where the basis for mocha comes from. In a small port town called Al-Mucha in Yemen, traders began to carry the beans across Arabia and from there out into the world. But in contrast to back then, the liquid black gold is hardly brewed in the copper jugs anymore. Modern and technically sophisticated espresso machines are used. Fully Automatic Coffee Machines These are not only suitable for the preparation of cappuccinos but can also brew wonderfully full-bodied espresso with freshly ground beans, thanks to the integrated grinder! And all of this with just one push of a button. In terms of price, they are mainly in the upper range, which may be a barrier for many. The maintenance and cleaning of these coffee machines is relatively easy and takes place automatically several times a day before a new preparation. However, you have to be aware that these take up a lot of space, and you can’t just stow them away after use. Capsule Machines The small capsules allow a wide selection of different flavors, which can also vary depending on the season and conjure up a welcome change in the cup. The coffee machines themselves are relatively affordable, but it gets a bit more expensive if you calculate the individual price per capsule. You also have to consider that if you do not bring the capsules to the store after use as intended by the manufacturer, where they can be recycled appropriately, you will pollute the environment with regular consumption. Pad Coffee Machines These work on a very similar principle as the capsule machines, but small filled pods are used instead of capsules. This variant is usually a little cheaper and definitely more environmentally friendly. The machines themselves are a bit lower, which is why they are especially suitable for the smaller wallet. Built-In Coffee Machines The functionality is the same as with conventional, fully automatic machines. The whole beans are poured into a chamber and freshly ground there for each cup of espresso. However, the significantly higher price range discourages many from buying, and you have to consider that not every kitchen is intended for this. In addition, maintenance is a little more complicated than with smaller models and is usually carried out by a specialist, which can result in additional costs. This must also be done regularly. Otherwise, there is a risk that the device will become calcified and therefore no longer fully functional. The advantage here is that you have a great deal of freedom with regard to the selection of coffee beans, and you are not forced to fall back on the limited supply as with capsule machines. These machines also usually enable many other functions, such as the preparation of lattes and other specialties, as a milk frother is installed in addition to the grinder. When deciding which espresso machine best meets individual requirements, it is advisable to first sort according to the kettle type. Single-circle is the inexpensive entry into the world of tasty espresso, but they also quickly show their weakness if several cappuccinos are prepared in a short time. Suitable dual circuits solve the problem. Dual boilers are only worthwhile for real perfectionists or when producing numerous hot drinks. Source

    Nothing against romaine, but you’ve never met a better, brighter riff on the classic Caesar than with this raw broccoli and kale twist. They can stand up to the creamy dressing, so there’s no reason you can’t make this crowd-pleaser well in advance. Dare we say the salad gets better with time—the dressing will continue to tenderize the leaves without turning them soggy. Lacinato (dinosaur) kale is better suited for this salad than tougher and more fibrous curly kale, but the latter will work in a pinch. Crispy chunks of seeds offer an upgrade to croutons. INGREDIENTS 1 lb (450 g) boneless, skinless organic chicken thighs 1 large head broccoli 6 cups (1.5 L) chopped kale 2 Tbsp (30 mL) mayonnaise or nondairy mayonnaise 2 Tbsp (30 mL) white wine vinegar or cider vinegar 3 Tbsp (45 mL) grated Parmesan, plus more shaved for serving 2 tsp (10 mL) grainy Dijon mustard 2 garlic cloves, minced 2 anchovy fillets, finely chopped (optional) 1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt 1/4 tsp (1 mL) black pepper 3 Tbsp (45 mL) extra-virgin olive oil 1 Tbsp (15 mL) honey 1/4 tsp (1 mL) crushed red pepper flakes 2 tsp (10 mL) lemon zest 2 Tbsp (30 mL) raw shelled sunflower seeds 2 Tbsp (30 mL) raw pumpkin seeds 1 Tbsp (15 mL) raw sesame seeds DIRECTIONS Preheat oven to 400 F (200 C). On parchment paper- or silicone mat-lined baking sheet, place chicken and season with salt and pepper. Place in oven and heat for 25 minutes, or until chicken is cooked to an internal temperature of 165 F (74 C). When cool enough to handle, slice chicken. Alternatively, you can prepare chicken on an outdoor grill. Cut off broccoli florets as close as possible to the dark green flowers and roughly chop; add to large bowl. Trim woody ends from broccoli stems, preserving as much stem as possible. With sharp knife, peel thick skin of stems to expose tender inner cores. Thinly slice stems and add to bowl with florets. Add kale to bowl and toss to combine. In small bowl, whisk together mayonnaise, vinegar, Parmesan, mustard, garlic, anchovies (if using), salt, and black pepper. In slow stream, whisk in olive oil. Add dressing to bowl with broccoli and kale, and toss until everything is well coated. With your hand, massage dressing into vegetables. In small bowl, combine honey, red pepper flakes, lemon zest, and 1 Tbsp (15 mL) water. In dry medium-sized skillet over medium heat, toast sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, and sesame seeds, stirring often, until sesame seeds are lightly browned, about 3 minutes. Add honey mixture and cook, stirring often, until seeds stick together in small clumps and they look glazed, about 2 minutes. Scrape seed mixture onto parchment paper; let cool to harden together. Break into small clusters. To serve, divide vegetables among serving plates and top with chicken slices and seed clusters. Garnish with shaved Parmesan. Make ahead: Dressed greens, cooked chicken, and seed clusters can be stored separately in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Combine just before serving.
