US President Donald Trump’s proposed crackdown on foreign work visas looks set to hit Indians particularly hard, with the administration seemingly intent on tightening the screws on the coveted H-1B visa programme.Beginning in January, Washington will “revise” the visa scheme, which allows foreign workers to take jobs in the US. The move has already created jitters in Indian IT companies and employees. Over 75 per cent of the more than 400,000 H-1B holders are Indian nationals, according to US Citizenship and Immigration Services.Read it at SCMP Related Items

Mainz 0 Borussia Dortmund 2: Stoger’s tenure begins with much-needed victory Matt Dorman 05:29 12/13/17 Getty Images Sokratis Papastathopoulos scored the goals as Peter Stoger made a successful start to life at Borussia Dortmund. Borussia Dortmund started life under Peter Stoger with a 2-0 win at Mainz on Tuesday as they broke an eight-game winless run in the Bundesliga.In his maiden match at the helm since replacing the sacked Peter Bosz, Stoger made an excellent start as second-half goals from Sokratis Papastathopoulos and Shinji Kagawa second half secured a first victory over top-flight opposition since September.The Austrian, himself only dismissed by bottom-placed Cologne this month, was immediately appointed by BVB to lead a turnaround and received a glimpse of the work ahead during a laboured first half.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player But where they have folded under pressure time and again in recent months, Dortmund persevered through a difficult opening and reaped the rewards.Sokratis provided the initial relief, bundling home a rebound through a throng of bodies for his second and most important league goal of the campaign.And Shinji Kagawa, having spurned one clear opportunity, buried the second late in proceedings to sweep Dortmund into a much more palatable fourth after 16 games.This time @S_Kagawa0317 does find the back of the net! Surely 3 points in the bag for @BVB! #M05BVB 0-2 pic.twitter.com/I9KXzPFmRV— Bundesliga English (@Bundesliga_EN) December 12, 2017Despite making three changes and shifting from a three-man defence to a back four, Stoger’s tenure began much the way his predecessor’s ended as the away side came under early pressure.Suat Serdar crashed a swerving effort off the top of the crossbar in the sixth minute and followed that by firing wastefully high with time and space inside the area.Abdou Diallo next nodded over from a good position as Mainz settled quickest during the opening exchanges, albeit without making their opportunities count.Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, having earlier turned a difficult shot around the upright, should have done better with his first real sight of goal five minutes from the interval, only to hastily poke wide of the same right-hand post after Julian Weigl dropped a pass over the hosts’ defence.Raphael Guerreiro did draw Robin Zentner into the first save for either goalkeeper late in the half, but that was the only shot on target of an otherwise muted first 45 minutes.After Christian Pulisic failed to hit the target soon after the restart, it was left to a defender to provide the crucial composure in front of goal.Omer Toprak’s close-range header from Kagawa’s free-kick came back off the near post and fell for Sokratis to drive in the opener. DANKE, PAPA!

Arsenal Share on WhatsApp Read more Reuse this content Share via Email Share on Messenger The Fiver: sign up and get our daily football email. features Topics Share on Twitter Twitter Cesc Fàbregas says he feels young again after move to Monaco Unai Emery Read more Facebook Pinterest The next few weeks appear pivotal. Arsenal have to put aside their concerns and find some form quickly. The next three weekends bring Chelsea in the Premier League, a rejuvenated Manchester United in the FA Cup and a trip to Manchester City. This is a test of Emery’s mettle, even if this season is increasingly likely to be defined by how Arsenal fare in the Europa League – a favoured competition for the new manager and arguably their best route back into the Champions League.Meanwhile, until the final day of this short-lived adventure is concluded, Mislintat will continue his work at Arsenal with the high level of focus he routinely demands of himself. He has been working on a couple of potential transfers during this awkward period of limbo – aware that his job is to help a club he has grown fond of even if the end is just around the corner. The spotlight now turns to Sanllehí and his preferred candidate to take on the technical direction. Will he go for someone in the mould of Mislintat or Monchi, men famed for their ability to detect outstanding talent whose value has every chance of exploding? Or will he prefer a more contacts-based person in the old-fashioned mould? Or someone who is more of an overseer? If so, then someone else to bring high quality to the scouting department may well be required as well as a technical director. For example Edu, a member of Arsenal’s Invincibles in 2004, the last time the club won the Premier League, is admired for his work with Brazil’s national team but would not come armed with the type of scouting network and procedures developed over the years by Mislintat.Sanllehí’s experience of how the technical direction worked at Barcelona is perhaps not a particularly useful model for Arsenal currently. At the Camp Nou the political machinations tend to overcomplicate things. At one point not so long ago there was a whole cabal choosing transfers. Group decisions do not always lead to much clarity, or that smart, streamlined efficiency Arsenal claim to be after. Radical change was going on all over the place and the noises were all positive. In outlining their intention for Arsenal to win the weightiest prizes out there, it was easy to talk the talk but, realistically, how would they walk the walk? Raúl Sanllehí, director of football, warmed to the theme. “We need to be very, very efficient in the design of the first team. We need to be very efficient in the way we play and the way we generate the income to put more fuel into the machine,” he stressed.The design of the team, based on that search for greater efficiency, was supposed to owe a lot to the very specific expertise of Sven Mislintat. The German talent-gatherer brought with him first-hand experience not only of looking for what he calls “future players” – the untapped potential, the unpolished gems – but also in knowing every detail from within about how a club such as Borussia Dortmund, operating outside the financial super-elite, could box clever enough to compete at the highest level without a massive outlay. They more or less wrote the modern manual, rocketing from the prospect of bankruptcy to the Champions League final in 2013 through a smart and inspired model, and Mislintat was a key part of that.His upcoming departure begs the question: are Arsenal still aiming to emulate that kind of methodology? After all, they had in place a man who had inside knowledge of that approach and losing him feels like a missed opportunity, especially for a club such as Arsenal who are trying to establish a long-term new direction alongside short-term problem-solving in the post-Arsène Wenger era. Share on Facebook Sanllehí is the last man standing of the triumvirate who oversaw the transition from the last days of Arsène Wenger to the first steps of Unai Emery. Gazidis, Mislintat and Sanllehí led the selection process, all bringing their own specialism to the party. And pretty soon only one of them will remain.This all comes at an uneasy time for the club. The sunnier climes of grand plans, unbeaten runs and a positive vibe that encouraged the fans to reconnect enthusiastically have passed. There is a change in the weather. The forecast feels overcast and cool. Shabby results, injuries, the curious case of Mesut Özil’s expensive spell on the periphery and a lack of discernible gameplan on the pitch seem mirrored by a much cloudier sense of direction off it because of Mislintat’s departure coming just as Emery confessed that Arsenal have no option but to scratch around for loans in this transfer window. There is a fine line between the encouragement of a few months ago and a return to the apathy that was epitomised by reams of empty seats at the Emirates last season. Arsenal are high-wiring across that line for now. Share on LinkedIn Sven Mislintat joined Arsenal from Borussia Dortmund in November 2017.

(Rival territory: The former Royal Edward Arms on the left houses gangs from outside Thunder Bay. The former Odd Fellows Hall, across the street on the right, is operated by local Indigenous gangs. Photo: Kenneth Jackson)Kenneth Jackson, Willow Fiddler and James Robinson APTN News She needed the money so she let the gang members in her home.Then things went crazy.They tried to take over and use her home as a trap house, a place where street gangs run drugs and women.“They gave me dope that caused a seizure and I almost died,” says the First Nations woman who APTN News has agreed not to name for her safety.When the ambulance came so did the police and they kicked the thugs out.Considering everything, she was lucky.Most aren’t able to get gang members out of their lives.After the police kicked them out, she wouldn’t let them back in.Now she walks around with a target on her head.“They paid people to harass and beat me up (after),” she says. “They are still coming after me.”She’s hardened by the chase of her next fix and whether one day, the gang will return, kick down her door and kill her.This is a familiar theme nowadays in Thunder Bay as outside gang members from Toronto and Ottawa are trying to take over the city.They’re violent, ruthless, dangling money and drugs on streets desperate for anything fast and free.But nothing is free and “life is cheap” as people told APTN reporters who last week spent several days digging into gangs and what’s known as the Fort William trap.The big city thugs are targeting the most marginalized people and, in Thunder Bay, that tends to be First Nations people, particularly women.That includes single mothers, according to Staff Sgt. Ryan Gibson who heads up the Intelligence unit for Thunder Bay police.“We had a couple kicks on doors last year (where) they had taken over their homes,” says Gibson. “They were basically single Indigenous women with kids.”Gibson says it was a “nightmare situation” for the women and has only gotten worse in the last year.The Toronto and Ottawa gangs are fighting for turf while Indigenous gangs, the most prominent being the Native Syndicate, also fight for space they long held.The outside gangs will offer free drugs to suffering addicts and then make them do their dirty work to get more.That includes trashing apartments of people who resist the gangs, prostituting women on the street or out of the trap houses.Gangs have “rats” or “lookouts” all over which made it difficult for APTN to talk to some people.Most couldn’t be named in this story for a fear of their safety.When not taking over homes of single Indigenous mothers or preying on the dope sick APTN was told of a new approach by gangs.There is word on the street of thugs shaving the hair off the heads of Indigenous women.“They’ll make them work the doors (of trap houses),” says one person. “They’ll send her to go do whatever until she can go back out there to work (the streets in forced prostitution).”It’s a form of control the person says.The outside gangs are known as “the blacks” – for their skin colour. People also had other, more racist terms for them.But as they gain a foothold in the city, many say trouble is brewing as they collide with established Indigenous gangs and drug dealers.In fact, all that separates them in the Fort William trap is the yellow line on George Street.Recently, the outside gangs have taken over floors in a building known as the Royal Edward Arms, a former hotel that once hosted Queen Elizabeth in the 1950s, while the old Odd Fellows Hall building right across George street is “Native territory.”Both buildings are overrun with drugs and discarded needles can be found throughout. People told APTN they are cash “havens” for the gangs.People also told APTN it’s just matter of time before something happens.“It’s a war,” says one person. “Every day I wake up: Am I going to get shot leaving the building today?“Odd Fellows people and Royal Eddy people are different. They don’t click.”Writing on the wall inside the former Odd Fellows Hall. The N.S. stands for Native Syndicate. Photo: Kenneth JacksonAPTN explained to Gibson what it was hearing happening in the buildings, including the turf war.“For you to tell me the Royal Eddy and Odd Fellows have issues, 100 per cent,” he says. “You’re not too far off.”The two buildings fall within the Fort William trap – an area of the south end that has the main homeless shelter.The hub of the trap is the Victoriaville Mall and Newfie’s Pub, that are kitty corner to each on Victoria street.People hustle on the sidewalks outside.It’s given the bar an unfair reputation to many who go there. It just happens to be the only bar there, they say.Marginalized people hang around outside and “runners” from the Royal Eddy and Odd Fellows are there, too.People who come down from the suburbs are known to pop in and get a runner to go get their fix.“You have people who come to the bar, who don’t drink at the bar, looking for people to run to the buildings to get their stuff and leave,” says one person.Several people told APTN the same thing.But the Fort William trap isn’t confined to this part of Thunder Bay.“They’re not just there. They are all over the city,” says Gibson.He says police have kicked down doors all across the city to keep up with the gangs, and Thunder Bay police press releases back this up.They’re littered with drug busts and violence related to gangs, like kidnappings.“They’ll go into an area, they’ll do their thing and we’ll go in and clean them out, arrest them but more will come,” says Gibson.He says the allure of Thunder Bay to outside gangs is they know they can make more money in the northern Ontario city and it also gives them connections to northern reserves where the price jumps even more.“We are going after them as much as we can but it’s like plugging the dike with your finger sometimes,” Gibson says, adding at one point the local jail had a wing and a half filled with outside gang members.People told APTN the outside gangs run drugs and women like a business. They have shifts and cycle members through to avoid police.“There’s a day shift and there’s a night shift,” says one person. “So you don’t know how many there are, right?“Usually they use the cleanest ones and they are the ones who got all the dope and money. The ones who don’t have a record.”Even with all the arrests, Gibson says he’s not surprised to hear this.“They are going to adapt to try and counter us and account for our techniques,” he says.Thunder Bay has always had social issues with addictions and crime but several people told APTN they are seeing dirty drugs hit the street and people are overdosing on heroin, similar to other cities across Canada with the fentanyl epidemic.But the cocaine can also be laced with the garbage they say. Two people told APTN three people died of overdoses the week before reporters arrived.Barb Campbell sits on park bench where her late brother Bert Woods could usually be found. He was victim of a homicide in September. It was one of several tragedies for Campbell. Photo: Kenneth JacksonBarb Campbell, 43, says her brother got sick from dirty drugs last week. “I noticed ever since that (dope) came into town people are just bones. People are getting poisoned,” says Campbell.It was just the latest thing she has had to deal with in recent months.Her daughter, Kory-Lee Campbell, 22, was killed in a double homicide in July allegedly by Campbell’s ex-partner, Garnet Loon.Loon and Campbell’s daughter, Kailee Loon, 19, was allegedly there, too. Police charged Garnet Loon, 41, with first-degree murder in Kory’s death.The other person killed was Robbie Gray, 50. Both Garnet and Kailee are charged with second-degree murder in Gray’s death.Robbie Gray in an undated Facebook photo.Gray’s name is known to those on the street.He was “the boss” of the Native Syndicate street gang several people say.Police will only say Gray was affiliated with the Native Syndicate.“This guy has been responsible for many deaths in this city,” says one person. “They’d charge him and people would disappear or people get beaten up (and) they’d recant their statements or move away.“He may not have directly killed a lot of people but his people underneath him did.”Gray’s Facebook page remains up and he had posted several photos of young First Nations men and women flashing a gang hand symbol.But there’s also many who posted on various posts saying they were going to miss him and it is sad he is gone.Tragedy struck Campbell again in September when her younger brother was killed in a suspected home invasion, while two others were badly hurt with a baseball bat.Police have charged Nazareth Nelson with second-degree murder of Bert Wood, 23, attempted murder on another and aggravated assault on a young First Nations woman.Campbell spoke of her brother sitting on a blue bench across from the courthouse where he was known to be. She and others wrote memorial messages on the bench.“I don’t want him to be forgotten. He was a good kid. He didn’t deserve that. No one deserves that kind of treatment. He was sleeping,” says Campbell.As she leaves the bench Campbell says, “I love you, Bert.”The Thunder Bay chapter of the Hells Angels recently put their logo back up suggesting they have enough members to operate a chapter again. Photo: Kenneth JacksonRecently, the Hells Angels put their death head sign back on their clubhouse on Simpson Street.It’s created quite the stir in the city.For some, it means maybe things will change.“I’m not a supporter of organized crime but when the H.A. had a heavy presence here there was order. We need them back. We didn’t have people dropping like flies and (overdosing) and shit like that,” says one person.Police busted the Thunder Bay chapter back in 2006 with multiple arrests and have done raids on the clubhouse since basically freezing them out for several years.For the death head to go back up it means they have enough members to run a chapter again.As for the First Nations woman at the beginning of the story, she is living one day at a time looking over her shoulder. While driving with APTN she spots a tanker ship out in Port Arthur in the north end of Thunder Bay.It’s a sunny day and it’s quite a pretty picture.“Oh God, look at that,” she says. “So much better than looking at a needle and a condom.”She’s quiet for a few seconds and then says it’s the most beautiful part of Thunder Bay, far enough away from the Fort William trap.“I’d just like to jump on that boat. It’d be my only escape out of here,” she says.
By Kevin Kriedemann – LondonDefence lawyers for Peter Greste, Baher Mohammed and Mohammed Fahmy made strong final arguments in court today. The three Al Jazeera English journalists have been detained in Egypt since 29 December 2013. In remarks which drew applause in the court room, one of the lawyers concluded by saying: “This is not a trial for these defendants alone – this is a trial of all journalists.” The defence reminded the court that the members of the technical committee who had evaluated the evidence could not recall a single example of what they believed was fabricated coverage from the Al Jazeera team. They also could not pinpoint anything that endangered national security.Al Jazeera spokesperson Osama Saeed said, “Today’s summation by the defence shows again the weaknesses of the arguments made by the prosecution. The world knows that the three Al Jazeera staff who have been jailed were just doing their jobs. The defence has articulated that the entire trial is a trial of all journalists who believe in honest reporting and integrity, and not just a trial of the Al Jazeera three. On the balance of arguments, It’s abundantly clear that Peter, Baher and Mohammed are not guilty of anything, and they should be set free.”Previous court dates have bizarrely included the prosecution showing footage of Sky News Arabia tourism reports, BBC podcasts, songs by Gotye, photoshopped images of Fahmy, Greste’s family photos, and some of Greste’s award-winning work from East Africa.The trial has been adjourned until 16 June 2014.The fourth detained Al Jazeera journalist, Abdullah Elshamy, is held separately. A decision was to be taken today about renewing his detention for another 45 days, but this was postponed by the court till 11 June 2014. He has been detained without charge for nearly ten months.
27 October 2009Helping farmers rebuild their livelihoods has become one of the priorities of relief and recovery efforts in the wake of the recent deadly typhoons that pummelled the Philippines, the United Nations humanitarian wing reported today as it called on donors to step up funding for its appeal. So far $22.4 million has been received – or just 30 per cent of the $74 million that the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) and its aid partners requested in the flash appeal issued following Typhoon Ketsana (also known as Ondoy) and Typhoon Parma.The two storms over the past month have collectively killed more than 500 people, displaced thousands of others and left a trail of destruction among homes, schools and critical farmland across the Asian archipelago.OCHA reported today that a joint preliminary assessment by the UN Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) and Filipino agricultural authorities estimates that between 100,000 and 120,000 farming households lost all of their production and assets as a result of the storms.Emergency supplies of rice, vegetable seeds and fertilizers and the repair of damaged small-scale irrigation systems should be the highest priorities ahead of the expected dry season in November and December, according to the assessment.OCHA warned that if extra support is not provided to the farmers, the next harvest season will be significantly affected and many households will struggle to ensure there is enough food.The UN World Food Programme (WFP) is also using the joint agricultural assessment to determine its strategy for providing food assistance for the next five months. The agency is in the process of dispatching 4,800 tons of rice and another 10,000 tons are expected to follow soon.One of the other major concerns of aid agencies in the Philippines is the rise in the number of cases of leptospirosis, a waterborne disease, and a team of experts from the Global Outbreak Alert and Response Network has arrived in Manila, the capital, after a request from the UN World Health Organization (WHO) and national health officials.

This included bullying in school.Professor Andrea Danese, who led the research, said: “Our findings should serve as a wake-up call – childhood trauma is a public health concern yet trauma-related disorders often go unnoticed. Young people with PTSD are falling through the gaps in care and there is a pressing need for better access to mental health services.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Show more Nearly 100,000 children are suffering from post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) because of severe bullying and violence, researchers have warned.The first comprehensive study of the issue in Britain found 7.8 per cent of people under the age of 18 are living with the condition more commonly associated with veteran soldiers.Its authors warned of a hidden epidemic whereby children suffering from nightmares, irritability and concentration problems are going undiagnosed and untreated.Barely a third of children with PTSD seek help from their GP, while only one in five ever get to see a specialist, the research found.Published in the Lancet, the study should increase awareness of PTSD among parents and teachers, the team at King’s College London said. They drew on a cohort of 2,232 twins born in 1994 and 1995 who were given a full psychiatric interview at the age of 18, following four previous assessments between the ages of 5 and 12.Just over three in 10 children were found to have experienced some kind of trauma during their childhood.The most common type was so-called “network” trauma, where a child find out about a traumatic event suffered by someone they know.However, among those who went on to develop PTSD – 57 per cent – the most common reason was direct personal experience, or the treat of experiencing, assault, injury or sexual violation. Symptoms of the condition include re-living traumatic events through distressing memories or nightmares, avoidance of anything reminding them of trauma, feelings of guilt, isolation or detachment, as well as irritability, impulsivity and difficulty concentrating.Previous research has found that the risk of PTSD following exposure to trauma is greater in girls.The new study revealed that half of young people with PTSD had self-harmed, while one in five had attempted suicide since the age of 12.A quarter were not in education, employment or training, and half said they experienced high levels of social isolation or loneliness.“One of the distressing things is how few of the young people with PTSD received treatment,” said Professor Danese, who also practises as a NHS consultant child and adolescent psychiatrist.We have very effective ways of treating PTSD, but they are most effective when the treatment occurs early on.
Two Hitachi EX5500-5 face shovel hydraulic excavators achieved a high performance milestone in October 2013 at the Yanacocha gold mine in Peru by surpassing 100,000 operating hours. Both EX5500-5 machines – the predecessor to Hitachi’s current EX5600-6 model – were delivered 14 years ago and have been working at numerous pits in the 251 km2 open pit mine ever since. The first machine passed the 100,000 h mark on October 7, 2013, and the second only 22 days later on October 29, 2013.Yanacocha, which is owned by Newmont Mining, is one of the largest gold mines in the world. It is situated roughly 30 km north of Cajamarca, high in the Andes, where extreme conditions exist. The material at the mine is abrasive, weather can be a challenge and at an altitude of 3,500 to 4,000 m above sea level, close attention needs to be paid to the engines.“The longevity of these machines, particularly in the aggressive conditions that exist in Yanacocha, is a testament to the reliability, durability and efficiency of Hitachi excavators,” said Craig Lamarque, Division Manager, Hitachi. “When Hitachi builds something, they build it right. That’s why you can rely on our focused line of excavators and haulers.” Both machines were serviced at the mine in Yanacocha. In addition to normal maintenance, such as daily inspections, filter and oil changes, and hose inspections, the Yanacocha team changed components by condition or by hours. In addition, the swing bearings were changed every 20,000 to 40,000 hours and major structural components, such as the boom, arm, side frames and main frame, were changed or repaired upon inspection.

SOME PEOPLE MIGHT wonder why Ireland’s historical artefacts are important, but it has always been my opinion that anything that can tell us about our Irish history should be valued.Objects can tell us startling stories, like the stone for an ancient ceremonial axe found in the west of Ireland came from the Alps, or that the man who brought a beautiful gold ornament to these islands grew up thousands of kilometres to the east.Each object, each real thing, was handled by people who walked before us. Looking at the object opens the door a crack for us to see back, to know a bit more what it was like to live then – to know, even, that the Neolithics made handbags.Looking back to our pastObjects can put us in touch with the past in a direct and immediate way, but they also help us to a more complex understanding of the past.When journalist Fintan O’Toole started a series in The Irish Times in collaboration with the National Museum of Ireland, with the idea to promote Irish objects, we at the Royal Irish Academy thought it was a wonderful idea so we offered to publish the book. Every week he chose the objects starting with the earliest, the Mesolithic Fish Trap, and then it ran chronologically through 8,000 years of Irish history. People were really interested and it was a huge success – and now the book is ready, A History of Ireland in 100 Objects.What many people might not know is that The Royal Irish Academy held the treasure trove of historical objects before the National Museum was set up, so we had bought things like the Tara Brooch, Ardagh Chalice and a lot of the gold in the 1800s to preserve it for the nation.Ireland’s favourite objectsSo how would we determine what are Ireland’s favourite objects? We thought the best way would be through a public vote and exhibition, so that the people of Ireland could choose the final objects in the book. The Object for Our Times exhibition opened in November and we ended up including two of the objects chosen by popular vote: the Anglo-Irish bank sign and a decommissioned IRA gun to mark the fragile peace in Northern Ireland.When the project started, the designer of the Anglo-Irish logo got in touch with us. I was struck by how you can create something beautiful, as he did, based on a flint arrowhead in the Museum, which then becomes associated with the crash, with reckless lending. Talking with him gave me the chance to look at the design again, without all the Anglo baggage.I do have a favourite. I love the Corleck Head, the three-faced two-thousand year old sculpture. It has a golden glow about it and the simplicity makes it feel modern, I’d love to have it in my house. Its three faces see everywhere simultaneously – a useful asset in a house of tiny children.A gift from IrelandIreland has so many beautiful artefacts so, to mark the EU Presidency, it’s been decided that A History of Ireland in 100 Objects should be given as a gift from the people of Ireland to the people of the world for St Patrick’s Day. We want the world to be able to see what we have to show, so now they can, across all platforms.The RIA’s remit is to disseminate knowledge, so I am only too pleased that some of Ireland’s finest objects can be easily viewed on laptops, tablets and smartphones.I hope people will take an interest in the objects that are local to them, but also that many more people from abroad will get a little taste of what Ireland’s history and culture has to offer.
Exposition au plomb : des risques pour le développement neurologique des plus jeunesEurope – Le plomb présent dans certains aliments nuirait au développement des fœtus, des nourrissons et des enfants, selon le groupe d’experts scientifiques sur les contaminants (groupe Contam) de l’Autorité européenne de sécurité des aliments, qui a publié mardi 20 avril un avis sur le sujet.Le plomb est présent de manière résiduelle dans l’eau du robinet et dans les aliments comme les céréales et les légumes, ainsi que dans la poussière des maisons et dans la terre. Les risques pour la santé seraient faibles pour les adultes, cependant les experts montrent des inquiétudes en ce qui concerne les plus jeunes, fœtus, nourrissons et enfants, pour qui le plomb présenterait des risques en matière de développement neurologique.À lire aussiAmygdalite : chronique, caséeuse, cryptique, de quoi s’agit-il ?Le groupe d’experts Contam a remarqué que les jeunes exposés au plomb avaient un QI inférieur à celui de ceux qui y avaient été peu ou pas exposés. Chez les adultes, les troubles se manifestent par une pression artérielle plus élevée. L’Autorité européenne de sécurité des aliments pense que la dose hebdomadaire tolérable provisoire (DHTP), actuellement fixée à 25 microgrammes par kilogramme de poids corporel, n’est plus appropriée. Pour autant, ses experts ne sont pas encore en mesure de mettre en place un dispositif plus adapté, la limite à partir de laquelle les risques s’accroissent n’ayant encore pu être formellement déterminée.Le 22 avril 2010 à 11:41 • Emmanuel Perrin

Map of LakshimpurBNP leader Shahid Uddin Chowdhury Annie alleged activists of ruling party student wing Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) has attacked his residence in Lakshmipur district.BCL men on Wednesday afternoon attacked his residence at Godown Road in the town, he added.BCL, however, denied the allegation and said the attack was carried out by BNP men over the factional clash.The Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) leader said several hundred BCL activists led by district unit general secretary Ziaul Karim Nishan attacked Annie’s house while the local BNP leaders were holding a views-change meeting there.Annie, the central publicity secretary of BNP, was not present at that time. Annie told Prothom Alo, “They vandalised 10 motor bikes, smashed the windows and doors, and ransacked the chairs of the house.”Denying the allegation, BCL general secretary Nishan said, “I have heard they fought within the party over their factional feuds. Now they are trying to blame the BCL out of their political vengeance.”Lakshmipur sadar model police station’s officer-in-charge Mohammad Lokman Hossain said, “The attackers had fled the scene before police reached there.”No complaint was filed in connection with the matter, he added.
