Fernando: “Neymar and Thiago? I don’t know if they can return to Europe …”

first_imgFernando Reges, a Brazilian midfielder from Sevilla, suffered a muscle injury the day before LaLiga was stopped due to coronavirus. He had for several weeks and now he sees things with other perspectives: “I am recovering very well and I think I will be there when LaLiga returns. The doctors told me seven to eight weeks, we’ve been four, and if everything goes well, I’ll be ready. Maybe because of the injury I have it will cost me a little more to return, it may take a little longer but I hope to return as quickly as possible … We talk a lot, especially with the physical therapists, “he told Radio Sevilla.The pivot believes that it will take some time to readjust when he returns: “It will be difficult for everyone, we will need several games to pick up the pace, because even if you train at home it is not like doing it in a group, and if the return it is very fast there may be injuries. If anyone in the derby will have an advantage? It does not matter because all the teams are untrained, it will be the same for both teams. In LaLiga all the teams have quality and play well, we want to come back as strong as possible. “ LaLiga Santander* Data updated as of March 24, 2020 Although he has been banned by the club, Fernando had no thoughts of returning to his country, as compatriots like Neymar and Thiago Silva have done: “I have totally ruled it out, here I am safer, I think so. There people do not stay at home and go to the beaches, here I am better, with my family. Thiago and Neymar? I don’t know if they can go back to Europe, Because I think the same problem will be in Brazil in a few weeks. And I think that here in two or three weeks the infections will start to drop. “In closing, he referred to how his family is experiencing the beginning of the pandemic in Brazil: “In Brazil they believe that it will not be something big. But I talk to my family and they are worried, in two weeks what can happen in Spain. No one expected the coronavirus to act like this; this is a thing that will go down in history and will be studied in schools. “last_img read more

Hiding in Plain Sight: The Importance of Respectful Maternity Care

The expert panel presented evidence of disrespect and abuse in maternity wards from all over the world. The audience was captivated and moved but not shocked. From Rwanda to the Netherlands, everyone had a story.Many had witnessed signs of undignified maternity care, yet it had not been named. It had been pushed aside as a cultural norm, or considered as an outcome of a constrained health system. Disrespect and abuse is practiced when laboring mothers are admonished or beaten in a moment of acute vulnerability for having too many children, for having children too soon, for having HIV, or for simply crying out in pain. It manifests itself structurally when an overburdened midwife tries desperately to accommodate an overflowing delivery room, when a mother is abandoned by skilled personnel to deliver on a bare labor ward floor, and when she is handcuffed to a bed when she cannot afford to pay hospital fees.Disrespect and abuse during childbirth is not a new phenomenon. Evidence of poor patient-provider interactions have been documented for decades in North America, Europe, Sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Latin America. Maltreatment discourages women from delivering in health institutions, where life-saving treatment for complications in pregnancy and childbirth is available. Often referred to as the ‘moment of truth,’ the quality of the interaction between the healthcare provider and the patient is closely linked with women’s utilization of skilled birth attendance and, ultimately, maternal and newborn health outcomes. However, due to the already overstretched global health agenda, it is easy to overlook the importance of this critical relationship in maternal health programs and policies.The GMHC2013 afforded an opportunity for researchers, practitioners, and policymakers not only to share evidence, interventions, and advocacy for respectful maternity care, but also to challenge all those present to acknowledge this global problem that is hiding in plain sight. If advocates champion that maternal health is women’s health and share the imperative that women’s rights are human rights, then it is vital to support systems, infrastructure, and policies that ensure women’s rights extend to the delivery room.Over the next few weeks, the MHTF will host a series of guest blogs on respectful maternity care that will continue where we left off in Arusha. Posts will explore questions such as: What are programs and policies that are advocating for women’s dignity during childbirth?  Should respectful maternity care be considered a component of quality care?  What are the economic and human rights implications? How can communities become involved? How is disrespect and abuse present in rural and urban settings? In the private and public sectors?  In rich countries and poor countries?We invite you to share your story.

first_imgWhile it is still possible for users to modify their settings and defaults, Beard said Microsoft has made it more difficult for users to do so.“It now takes more than twice the number of mouse clicks, scrolling through content and some technical sophistication for people to reassert the choices they had previously made in earlier versions of Windows. It’s confusing, hard to navigate, and easy to get lost,” he wrote.According to Beard, this isn’t the first time Mozilla has reached out to Microsoft to discuss the issue, but due to the lack of progress Microsoft has made to address it, Mozilla is taking the necessary steps to fix it such as addressing Nadella and bringing it to the community’s attention. In addition, Mozilla is rolling out support materials and a tutorial video to help users restore their settings.“These changes aren’t unsettling to us because we’re the organization that makes Firefox,” Beard wrote. “They are unsettling because there are millions of users who love Windows and who are having their choices ignored, and because of the increased complexity put into everyone’s way if and when they choose to make a choice different than what Microsoft prefers.” Windows 10 officially arrived this week, and not everyone is impressed. In an open letter to Microsoft’s CEO Satya Nadella, Mozilla’s CEO Chris Beard called the company out on what he calls a disturbing feature of Windows 10.The latest release of the operating system automatically changes users’ default apps, such as making Microsoft Edge the main browser.(Related: Microsoft releases Windows 10)“The update experience appears to have been designed to throw away the choice your customers have made about the Internet experience they want, and replace it with the Internet experience Microsoft wants them to have,” Beard wrote.last_img read more
