World Bank provides $400 million to boost health insurance in Egypt

first_imgA person enters the building of the Washington-based global development lender, The World Bank Group, in Washington on January 17, 2019. – World Bank current President Jim Yong Kim announced on January 7, 2019, that he would cut short his tenure as president more than three years before his second term was to end. The World Bank Board said it would start accepting nominations for a new leader early next month and name a replacement for Kim by mid-April 2019.

Hesston Shaw

first_imgHe raced his way up to fourth by lap seven and to third before a series of cautions near midway. Sooner State speedster Hesston Shaw made history when he qualified for the Stock Car main event at the IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s Thursday night. (IMCA Photo) Shaw, from Hennessey, became the first driver from Oklahoma to qualify for the Stock Car Big Dance when he ran third in his qualifying feature. The Longdale Speedway regular put the Baird Motorsports ride, a former Mike Nichols car purchased over the winter, in the show after starting eighth. He topped that and then some Thursday night. Needless to say, the superlatives flowed following post-race tech. center_img “I still can’t believe I did it. This is a huge deal,” said Shaw, who pretty much grew up at the track. “Making the show is a dream come true. I’ve got goose bumps just thinking about it.” BOONE, Iowa – Hesston Shaw’s previous IMCA Speedway Motors Super Nationals fueled by Casey’s career highlight was starting on the pole for the Sunoco Race Fuels Race of Champions in 2016. “It was hard not to pay attention to the leader board,” said Shaw, who had tough customer Cayden Carter moving up from 16th starting behind him. “The longer the green flag runs were going, the better my car was.”last_img read more

Advice columnist writes guide, ‘Ask a Queer Chick’

first_imgNEW YORK | From coming out to dating to dealing with discrimination, Lindsay King-Miller has put together a guide, “Ask a Queer Chick,” that is tailor made for, as she describes, “girls who dig girls.”The title of the new book, out in February from the Penguin imprint Plume, is also the name of the advice column King-Miller has written online since 2011.“I wanted to expand on some of the questions I get asked most frequently,” she said in a recent interview from Denver, where she is a guest artist in creative writing at the Denver School of the Arts.This book cover image released by Plume shows, “Ask a Queer Chick: A Guide to Sex, Love, and Life for Girls Who Dig Girls,” by Lindsay King-Miller. The title of the new book, from the Penguin imprint Plume, is also the name of the longtime advice column King-Miller has written online since 2011. (Plume via AP)“The primary audience for the book is intended to be young LGBTQ people, but I do include a chapter that’s directed at straight and cisgender people who have questions about how to interact and support the queer people in their lives,” she said.King-Miller, 28, said young people in the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer or questioning community often don’t have a personal go-to source in their lives for “compassionate guidance” or the kind of advice usually dispensed by a mother, older sister or other close friend or family member.While she covers broad topics such as dating, breaking up and how to seek out community, King-Miller also focuses on more specific issues.Take “lesbian bed death,” for instance. She calls that an “awful term” coined in the 1980s to describe the “supposed tendency of queer women to stop having sex altogether after a few years of dating.”The term, she laughed, sounds more like a lethal disease. King-Miller notes the phenom has been “somewhat discredited” in recent years but the phrase hangs on.“The idea of LBD makes people nervous, if you go a few days or a few weeks without having sex. You go, ‘Oh no, is this lesbian bed death,’” she said. “Is this how it starts? The reality is subsequent studies have shown that all people in long-term relationships find that the frequency of their sex lives decreases, then tends to plateau and stay below what it was in the first year.”However, she said, “lesbian couples report longer sexual encounters. So while they’re having sex less frequently, they’re having sex for longer, and they report similar satisfaction with their sex lives as their heterosexual counterparts.”How to get a relationship off the ground is a big topic for King-Miller’s column readers, since many are newly out or in the process of coming out. But dumping a partner is another matter she takes on in her book.“Anecdotally, I think that queer women are more likely to remain friends with their exes than straight people, but we’re certainly also more likely to have them in one way or another remain in our lives,” she said.“Queer social circles are just smaller,” King-Miller said. “If you wanted to avoid your ex altogether you might end up feeling like you’ve been ex-communicated from your gay social scene. Learning to co-exist with exes in a peaceful and non-adversarial way is probably a good life skill to have across the board. It’s maybe even more important for queer women because it’s really hard to go through a lesbian breakup. If there’s one gay bar in town you’re going to see your ex there.”Coming out is one thing, King-Miller said, but being rejected by loved ones in the process is quite another. It’s an area she is asked about quite a lot by her column readers. If familial rejection is likely, she counsels, “there’s no shame in waiting to come out to them until you’ve saved up some money and are prepared to move out and support yourself.”Unfortunately, the supply of LGBTQ-friendly shelters doesn’t always keep pace with the demand of young people who find themselves on the streets. And internalizing the rejection, she said, can be a struggle.“If you do walk away from the people who raised you, you still won’t be alone,” King-Miller reinforces in the book. “There is a world of LGBTQ and allied people out there, many of whom would be thrilled to share support, friendship and mix CDs with you. While you’re mourning what you lost, don’t forget to be excited for what’s ahead.”last_img read more

Latest on Web browser market for PC and mobile

Here are brief highlights from those posts:Mobile Web browsers – Microsoft’s downfall?: As we begin to use mobile devices more and more to access the Web, Microsoft’s browser dominance may begin to ebb away. 2008-09 is predicted to be when the Mobile Internet hits big. So who are the early leaders in the mobile web browsing market? PC browser battler Opera is styling itself as “the world leader in mobile browsing technologies”. In August this year, Opera Software launched Opera Mini – a browser for mobile phones. They also recently released a mobile AJAX Platform product, which impressed mobile expert Russell Beattie. Nokia has a product called Web Browser for S60, for browsing on a range of Nokia phones. Microsoft has its Smart Phone and Firefox has a mobile browser called Minimo. There have even been hints at a Yahoo! mobile browser.[full story here…]Browser Wars 2006 – Microsoft set to continue dominance: IE has been losing ground to Firefox over the past year and most tech bloggers (including me) report a higher percentage of Firefox than IE users. However in the mass market, IE is still by far the dominant browser. According to Web analytics company OneStat.com, as of late October 2005 almost 81 percent of Americans used IE, 14 percent used Firefox, and only a small percentage used Opera, Netscape, and all other browsers combined.[full story here…] Tags:#web#Web Development Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hostingcenter_img Related Posts Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… A Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai…last_img read more
