Advocates families speak out in defence of BCs Mental Health ActAdvocates families speak out in defence of BCs Mental Health Act


first_imgVANCOUVER – Frederick Dawe remembers the night about 30 years ago that his six-foot-eight son experienced a psychotic break in the emergency room of a Vancouver-area hospital.“He just lost it. He picked up a couch, swung it around the room, cleaned the room out,” Dawe said. “It took four security guards to hold him down while they gave him an injection.”The month-long hospital stay that followed was one of several where Peter Dawe was kept against his will. Both he and his father say those treatments saved his life.“You’re not of sound mind,” said Peter, now 50. “When you’re in that state you’re not thinking properly.”Dawe and his son are among those speaking out against demands that the British Columbia government overhaul the Mental Health Act to make it harder to involuntarily detain someone for treatment.The Community Legal Assistance Society, a B.C.-based legal advocacy group, published a report last month describing the province’s mental health laws as some of the most regressive in Canada.The report documents a spike in involuntary detentions over the past decade, from about 11,900 to more than 20,000, and chronicles reports of patients being put in solitary confinement, getting strapped to beds or having their clothes removed as a form of punishment.Laura Johnston, who authored the report, said she wants an independent commission to look into the act and recommend changes, including better training for health-care providers and the creation of an independent mental health advocate.But some advocates and family members are defending the mental health policies, saying involuntary admissions are crucial to getting loved ones help during a crisis.Nancy Ford, head of the North Shore Schizophrenia Society, said the only way she could get treatment for a relative with schizoaffective disorder was through an involuntary committal.“He didn’t know who people were. He heard voices. He was paranoid,” she said. “He had all of the symptoms of schizophrenia.”B.C. allows patients to be admitted involuntarily for mental health reasons in order to prevent “substantial mental or physical deterioration,” or for their protection and the protection of others.Involuntary patients may request a panel hearing to review their status and ask to be released, though Johnston said B.C. is unique because it has no regular detention review hearings.Cheryl Zipper teaches a course through the North Shore Schizophrenia Society for family members who have a loved one diagnosed with a mental illness. She said the Mental Health Act is essential for getting people the help they may not realize they need and taking away those powers could mean the death of a loved one.“That’s what’s at stake, because suicide is always looking at us in the face,” said Zipper, who has a relative diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder. “If a person is psychotic, they’re really not in command of any kind of rational thinking.”Families benefit from knowing involuntary committal is available as a last resort, Zipper said.“If you’re a family member, you may not need to use it, but you know that it’s there,” she said.“That in itself, I think, is reassuring,” she added. “It gives you hope, and hope is important. Hope is really important for families, because this is really awful.”Jean Fong, a spokeswoman for the B.C. Schizophrenia Society, said prompt medical treatment is crucial, whether voluntary or not, because repeated instances of untreated psychosis can cause permanent damage and lower the likelihood of recovery.“When people with severe mental illness are involuntarily committed, it is because they are unable to make rational decisions on their own behalf,” Fong said in an email.— Follow @gwomand on Twitterlast_img read more

Algeria’s Bouteflika to Submit Re-Election Papers Despite ProtestsAlgeria’s Bouteflika to Submit Re-Election Papers Despite Protests


Rabat – Despite a wave of protests against his re-election, Algerian President Abdelaziz Bouteflika will submit his official application to seek re-election on March 3.Bouteflika’s campaign manager, Abdelmalek Sellal, announced on Tuesday that the president would submit his papers as per the law.“It is Bouteflika’s right to be a candidate,” Sellal told the crowd in televised comments.Beginning last week, thousands of Algerians have taken to the streets to display their rejection of Bouteflika’s campaign to win re-election for a fifth term.After the first protests on Friday, February 22, clashes between demonstrators and Algerian police resulted in the arrest of more than 40 people.Read Also: Algerian Police Arrest 41 Protesters Opposing Bouteflika’s Re-ElectionToday—the fifth day of the demonstrations—Algerians renewed their anger and condemnation of their president’s campaign. Hundreds of college students rallied near their universities, shouting slogans and carrying Algerian flags.One young Algerian student, Adel, told the media amid protests: “I was born in 1999. In 20 years, I only knew Bouteflika as president.”Many Algerians share Adel’s view that Bouteflika, 81, should step aside and give younger leaders a chance to run for elections and bring change to the country.After he suffered from a stroke in 2013, Bouteflika’s health continued to deteriorate, and he has rarely been seen in public.Algeria will hold its presidential elections on April 18. read more


Arab Spring shows human rights are for everyone everywhere – UN officialArab Spring shows human rights are for everyone everywhere – UN official


30 June 2011The top United Nations human rights official said today that the so-called Arab Spring across North Africa and the Middle East this year has shown that human rights are for “all of us, all of the time, everywhere.” The top United Nations human rights official said today that the so-called Arab Spring across North Africa and the Middle East this year has shown that human rights are for “all of us, all of the time, everywhere.”Navi Pillay, UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, told a press conference in Geneva: “The collective actions of the people of North Africa and the Middle East have reaffirmed the importance and universality of human rights in a way we could not have dreamed of on 1 January this year. “We all want, we all deserve, and we are all entitled to have our rights observed – not partially, not sometimes, not at the whim of dictators or other repressive rulers and authorities, but all of us, all of the time, everywhere.”“That,” she said, “is the message of the Arab Spring, and it is a message that has reverberated all across the world, stimulating discussion and dialogue, and renewed hope in the power of people to realize change.” Previously, the High Commissioner noted, “the Middle East and North Africa was one of those areas where we had all been told the people had other preoccupations and were not particularly interested in human rights.”She said the Tunisians and Egyptians “had blown that myth away,” leading citizens of other countries in the region wondering if they could do the same, and so the protests had spread. “Several governments reacted in a violent and repressive fashion, leading to the loss of thousands of lives, torture, arbitrary detention, disappearances and other violations.”But, the High Commissioner added, “the situation was different in Jordan, Morocco and Algeria, which also experienced protests, but in those countries the governments have responded with positive reforms.” Ms. Pillay said that the new developments had coincided with the need for her office (OHCHR) to expand its activities in numbers and locations, which has left its resources “extremely stretched.” She said her office’s budget is $202 million, reportedly about the same amount as Australians spend each year on Easter eggs or the cost of three F-16 jet-fighter airplanes. “The amount Europeans spent on their pets in 2010 alone (€56.8 billion) would fund the entire UN human rights system, including my office, for something like 250 years,” she said. The High Commissioner asked States to “devote much more to making human rights a reality.”“Surely it makes sense to invest more heavily in human rights, and to back those brave protesters and human rights defenders in the Middle East, North Africa and elsewhere with much more than praise and fine words,” she said. read more

Middle East Quartet agrees to work towards twoState solution Annan reportsMiddle East Quartet agrees to work towards twoState solution Annan reports


In a communiqué read to the press held after this morning’s meeting in New York, UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan said that the Quartet strongly supported the goal of a final Israeli-Palestinian settlement, as expressed in a statement last month by US President George W. Bush, and agreed that with an intensive effort on security and reform by all, this could be reached within three years.”We remain committed to implementing the vision of two States, Israel and an independent, viable and democratic Palestine, living side by side in peace and security,” Mr. Annan said.The Secretary-General said the Quartet pledged all its efforts to realize the goals of reform, security and peace, reaffirming “that these efforts in the political, security, economic, humanitarian, and institution-building fields must proceed together, hand-in-hand.”The Quartet also welcomed “the strong Palestinian interest in reform, including the Palestinian 100-Day Reform Programme, as well as the willingness of regional States and the international community to assist the Palestinians to build institutions of good government and democracy, in preparation for statehood,” Mr. Annan said.As for Israel, the Secretary-General said that the Quartet noted that country’s “vital stake” in the success of Palestinian reform and called on it to take concrete steps to support the emergence of a viable Palestinian State, including easing internal closures, releasing frozen tax revenues, withdrawing forces and stopping all settlement activity.Mr. Annan said that Prime Minister Ariel Sharon had informed him that he wanted to see a worldwide humanitarian operation to alleviate the plight of the Palestinian people, adding that the Quartet agreed that full humanitarian access would be the fastest way to begin improving their plight. The United Nations – with the full support of the group – agreed to lead that effort, he said.”We all share the end objective of two States, living in peace, side by side,” the Secretary-General said in response to a question. “What we have to do is work out how we get there.”Later this afternoon, the Secretary-General and the other members of the Quartet met at his residence with the Foreign Ministers of Egypt and Jordan, as well as the Permanent Representative of Saudi Arabia to the United Nations.Speaking to the press afterwards, the Secretary-General stressed that more work needed to be done to iron out the details of what it would take to reach the objective of a Palestinian state in three years’ time.”We discussed the reform plans, the security issues and the progress that is being made on that front,” Mr. Annan said, adding that the meeting also addressed the “desperate” humanitarian situation on the ground as well as Prime Minister Sharon’s offer to work on the international humanitarian effort to alleviate the plight of the Palestinians. read more

Fords aluminumbodied F150 is cheaper to repair than steel report saysFords aluminumbodied F150 is cheaper to repair than steel report says


first_img Share your voice 2019 Mazda MX-5 Miata review: Club life isn’t for everyone, and that’s OK 43 Photos More From Roadshow Car Industry Trucks Auto Tech Tags Ford Enlarge ImageFord’s F-150 went through some big weight loss changes in 2014, but it came out the other side being cheaper and faster to fix. Ford When Ford announced that it would be making the body of its F-150 pickups out of aluminum, it got people all in a tizzy. See, historically, aluminum bodies were the province of exotic and sports cars. They were lightweight, yes, but fragile. Not something you’d want in a truck.Chevrolet took that idea and ran with it in a number of its ad campaigns, belittling Ford for using a fragile and expensive-to-fix material on a truck that’s meant to see real worksites and abuse. Well, according to a report published Monday by Automotive News, the aluminum F-150 isn’t that expensive to repair at all.Or, rather, it’s not that expensive anymore. Back in 2014, Ford’s grand experiment forced dealers to decide if they would invest in the training and equipment to repair the bodies of the new alu-bodied F-150. It was an expensive proposition at the time — with equipment costing dealers between $30,000 and $50,000 — but many of the changes in the way the truck bodies were designed and built meant that once technicians were trained and their shops adequately equipped, the repair process took significantly less time than it would have with a previous steel body panel.It’s not just time savings that have brought down the cost of repairs for the F-150; parts prices are lower too, in many cases. Hoods and front bumpers are among those parts to see double-digit percentage price decreases over previous models. Some parts, like bedsides, are more expensive, but likely less frequently needed. Ford also worked with suppliers of things like sealants, chemicals and other consumables necessary for repairs on the new bodies to keep costs in check.Another criticism from Ford’s competitors and a concern for buyers was that the new trucks would cost more to insure, but Ford explicitly set out to educate insurance companies on the vehicle’s modular architecture and subsequent lower repair costs. This means that that the aluminum F-150 is no more expensive to insure than the previous steel-bodied model, according to a spokesperson for State Farm.”We’ve said all along that high-strength, military-grade aluminum alloy continues to be the best performing material to meet our Built Ford Tough expectations and customer needs, and we’re glad the Highway Loss Data Institute report confirms aluminum F-150 is less costly to repair than steel-bodied competitors,” said Dawn McKenzie, Ford’s truck communications manager, in response to Roadshow. “The team set a goal at the very beginning to make the F-150 to be as easy and affordable to repair as possible, and they considered every aspect of what needed to be done, from vehicle design, dealer training, working with the insurance companies, and the price of replacement parts to make it happen. In the end, it’s our customers that win.”The truck business isn’t generally thought of as being highly technologically competitive in the same way that other market segments are, but Ford’s massive leap of faith with its move to alloy-bodied trucks was, in many ways, a quantum leap forward and one that paid off. The new bodies saved around 700 pounds of weight and those kinds of savings are increasingly becoming hard to come by, as are the benefits to fuel economy, performance and handling that they beget.center_img Ford Comment 2016 Ford Explorer review: Go road-tripping in Ford’s updated, EcoBoost-powered SUV 2019 Porsche 718 Cayman T first drive: Brilliant, but bittersweet 1 You can now get a Harley-Davidson-inspired 2019 Ford F-150last_img read more


Fast times and fat wallets – how Alaska got its pipelineFast times and fat wallets – how Alaska got its pipeline


first_imgThe trans-Alaska pipeline was the largest privately-funded construction project in the world, built across the biggest U.S. state and faced with unprecedented natural obstacles. It came with an $8 billion price tag, but true costs and benefits of the pipeline are still being calculated.In the spring of 1974, an airplane dropped Dave Haugen at a camp five miles north of the Yukon River, smack dab in the middle of Alaska. His job was to oversee construction of the road that would run along the trans-Alaska pipeline.Haugen was only on the job a week or two when — on his watch — a bulldozer worth maybe a couple hundred thousand dollars caught fire.“And I can see my whole career going up literally in smoke,” Haugen said.Haugen was sure the burning bulldozer spelled the end of his pipeline-building career.  And on any other project, it probably would have. But when he called headquarters to report it…“I’ll never forget his instructions – he says, ‘well, if it’s in the way, push it over to the side and keep moving,’” Haugen said.That told Haugen everything he needed to know. “Keep moving” was the message Haugen and everyone else building the pipeline would get every day until it was finished.Haugen was a project manager for the Alyeska Pipeline Service Company, formed in 1970 by a group of oil companies that had gotten lucky — unbelievably lucky — on Alaska’s North Slope.Oil was discovered at Prudhoe Bay in 1968. At the time, it was the biggest oil field in North America. Almost immediately, Alyeska laid plans to build a pipeline from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez, a mega-project estimated to cost $900 million.The oil companies had a crystal clear message for guys like Haugen: Even if the temperatures plummeted, the workers complained or bulldozers burned: keep moving.“What all of us knew about as managers of the project [was] ‘what we can’t have happen is this cannot slip. You must get this done on time,’” Haugen said.The standard schedule for the workers was “seven twelves” — seven days a week, twelve hours a day. During Haugen’s first few weeks, he started to feel overwhelmed. The project was so huge he couldn’t keep track of everything that was going on. Haugen decided that if he was going to get through it, he had to come up with a mantra.“Finally I actually had to sit myself almost literally in the corner and talk to myself and what I came up with was, ‘look, Dave, if you’re going to really survive this, what you’re going to have to recognize is that you can only deal with the things you can deal with,’” Haugen said.That’s because building a pipeline quickly was one thing — building this particular pipeline quickly was quite another.It had to stretch 800 miles, just longer than the distance from New York to Chicago. It had to cross three mountain ranges. It had to survive earthquakes. And it had to traverse hundreds of miles of permafrost — while carrying oil at 180 degrees Fahrenheit . Ultimately, more than half of the pipeline had to be elevated on huge supports.And that was just the design. They also had to get people to build it.One of those people was Ben Holeman — he helped move the 93 million cubic yards of earth it took to build the pipeline.“We were dirt people; we were building pads. We were miners; we were mining gravel,” Holeman said.All these workers were under pressure to work fast, too. Holeman said at one point, he worked 14 weeks straight.“I was so busy doing my thing that sometimes I didn’t see the world revolving around me. You know, my head was down, my tail was up — but I knew you almost couldn’t fall down because of the amount of people,” Holeman said.It may have been hard work, but it wasn’t hard to lure people north to work on the pipeline. The rest of the country was in a recession, and the pay was insane. Some welders and truckers were doing so much overtime they were paid well over $1,000 a week: a decent salary in today’s dollars and a windfall in the 1970s.Ultimately, about 70,000 people came to Alaska to complete the project.Thanks to Alyeska’s army of workers, six sections of the pipeline were built simultaneously, by five different contractors. At one point, Aleyska’s management started a competition between the contractors, tracking their progress with pictures of jockeys and racehorses on a chart.Haugen said it was amazingly effective: “It was going at warp speed — the construction was 24 hours a day, seven days a week.”With everything moving so fast, things inevitably went wrong. At one point, a group of inspectors charged with x-raying the welds in the pipeline couldn’t keep up with the welders — and started faking the x-rays. It was a huge scandal. Alyeska had to dig thousands of holes around already-buried portions of the pipeline to re-inspect the welds.Another massive obstacle was building the pipeline over Thompson Pass, near Valdez. It was a job that would set a mountaineer’s teeth on edge. They attached cables to the bulldozers — like marionette strings on giant puppets — just to keep them from tumbling down the slope.Even Mother Nature was no match for Alyeska’s demanding schedule. Planes bombed the mountain pass with coal dust in spring to speed up snow melt. By winter 1976, all 800 miles of pipe were laid, including at Thompson Pass. The project was almost finished.Stephen Cordova was working in Valdez in 1977 when oil finally started flowing. He could hear the force of it it pushing gas out a vent in the pipe — a vent located right by his bedroom window.“For a week or better, I heard this vent just psssshhhhhh — just going and going. You go to sleep and listen to this thing, all night long,” Cordova said. “And then all of a sudden, in the middle of the night, it goes shhhhht! And I just woke up and I go, ‘huh, oil’s in!’”It was around 11 p.m. on Thursday, July 28. Cordova reacted to the pipeline’s first oil like a kid waking up at Christmas:“I got dressed really quick, grabbed a gallon jug, ran up to the meter station” Cordova said. “Sure enough, here comes the oil! I asked, ‘can I have a gallon?’ They went, ‘yeah!’ So I got one of the gallons of the first crude that came down the pipeline.”When the first oil flowed down from Prudhoe Bay to Valdez, the flat line of the state’s economy picked up a pulse — of jobs and money for roads and towns and schools.But the pipeline’s completion also came with controversy. Building it in three years didn’t come cheap. The final cost? A whopping $8 billion — more than $7 billion more than the oil companies’ original estimate. And for years after it was finished, the state of Alaska and the oil companies battled over whether getting the pipeline done so quickly was worth the money it took to pull it off.This story is by Elizabeth Harball, Rashah McChesney and Zoe Sobel with Alaska’s Energy Desk.last_img read more

Not only thick ropes, but also sewing thread and even cooked spaghetti behave in a similar way. Recently, scientists have carried out the first controlled laboratory experiments on the peculiar phenomenon of coiling ropes, revealing the surprising dynamics behind it. Researchers Mehdi Habibi, Neil Ribe, and Daniel Bonn, together representing the Institute for Advanced Studies in Basic Sciences in Iran, the École Normale Supérieure and the Institut de Physique du Globe in Paris, and the University of Amsterdam, have published their results on the coiling of elastic ropes in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters. “With the results of this work, we — finally — are able to understand such a widespread phenomenon as rope coiling,” Bonn told PhysOrg.com. “Understanding coiling is important, for instance, in the food industry, where one needs to fill jars with visco-elastic materials such as yogurt or mayonnaise. Coiling has also been used to make pottery.”The scientists used two experimental setups to investigate the different conditions under which coiling occurs. In the first setup, they wound sewing thread onto a wheel, which was rotated by an electric motor to feed the thread down through a hole at a fixed rate (with tests from 0.3 – 200 cm/sec-1) onto a flat surface 2 – 200 cm below. In the second setup, they softened long pieces of spaghetti in water, and used a syringe or a rod to eject the noodles downward from a vertical glass tube. By comparing their laboratory measurements with the predictions of a numerical model, the group developed a phase diagram showing the different styles of coiling that occur depending on the fall height and velocity. Depending on these variables, there are three basic regimes where coiling can occur. “For the lowest fall heights and velocities, the coil frequency and radius are dictated by the geometry: the coiling frequency, for instance follows simply from the fall height and rope velocity,” Bonn explained. “For intermediate heights and velocities, there is a balance between the gravity force and the rope’s elasticity that uniquely determines the frequency and radius of coiling. For very high velocities and heights, it’s mainly the inertia of the rope that dictates its behavior, but the elasticity of the rope remains important: this is the inertial regime.”Habibi, Ribe and Bonn found that the inertial regime in particular is surprisingly complex. First, they observed that a thin thread fed at very high velocities becomes unstable to form a “figure of eight” pattern that persists for the length of the thread. Second, they found that coiling in the inertial regime can occur with different frequencies for a given feed rate and fall height. The different frequencies correspond to resonant oscillations of the nearly vertical upper part of the rope, which can vibrate either as a weak “string” or as a stiff “shaft” depending on the feed rate and the fall height. These oscillations are excited when their natural frequencies happen to match the basic “inertial regime” frequency dictated by the coiled part of the rope just above the ground. The scientists noted that other examples of coiling “elastic rods” include phenomena such as the kinking of telephone cables on the ocean floor, the coiled tendrils of climbing plants exhibiting handedness reversal, and the supercoiling of DNA strands. The coiling of liquid ropes, such as a thread of honey falling onto toast, has also received recent attention, and shares some similarities with the coiling of elastic ropes.

Featured modules may include specific missions, e.g. Cassini’s tour or Juno mission, but also events that can be experienced on earth such as the solar eclipse of 2017.NASA’s EyesThe program connects to NASA servers on start to populate the featured modules, and will do so again when you select one of the options in the program interface.Usually, what happens afterwards is that the visualization module gets loaded that provides you with visual information and options.If you select to explore Earth for instance, you see a virtual representation of earth and some of the satellites that orbit earth. You may select a specific speed in which events happen, for instance real time or 10 minutes represented by one second.The module displays latest events, e.g “record breaking smoke over Canada”, and options at the top to visualize vital signs of the planet Earth. This displays information about the earth’s temperature, sea level, water and ice, or carbon dioxide distribution.You can zoom in and out, and display information about specific missions or satellites. The module features additional tools; the telescope mode lets you look into space from specific positions in the world. Missions lists all missions added to the module, and datasets additional visualization options, for instance about a gravity field map or global wind speed.Modules differ depending on which you pick. If you pick the Cassini mission to Saturn module for instance, you get a different visualization.You can follow the spacecraft’s journey to Saturn, and get a lot of view options. There is a timeline with important points of the journey, options to jump to specific views, e.g. near Saturn, looking at Saturn or above Saturn, and information on the probe’s distance to Earth, relative speed or distance to Saturn.You may zoom in and out, and display information on the mission, Saturn and more. Last but not least, there is also an option to view Cassini images in the application.Closing WordsNASA’s Eyes is very powerful program that anyone who is at least mildly interested in space or Earth should at least take a look at. Since it pulls data from NASA servers, it comes with recent data on missions, and recent important events that you can take a look at.Summary12345 Author Rating4.5 based on 9 votes Software Name Nasa’s EyesSoftware Category LearningLanding Page https://eyes.nasa.gov/ Advertisementlast_img read more


Air NZs Blenheim blunderAir NZs Blenheim blunder


first_imgHalloween rename campaign cops criticism from Blenheim mayor. Source = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T The mayor of Blenheim has called on Air New Zealand to issue a “public apology” after the airline renamed Blenheim ‘Beastheim’ as part of an online Halloween campaign.The airline renamed national destinations to coincide with Halloween on its Grabaseat website.Auckland became Spookland, Christchurch was transformed into Witchchurch, Rotorua was renamed Rottingrua, and Wellington was altered to Spellington.Marlborough District Council mayor Alistair Sowman labelled the stunt offensive and said it conjured memories of serial sex offender Stuart Murray Wilson, known as ‘The Beast of Blenheim’.“We have enough problems now trying to put that name behind us,” Mayor Sowman said.Following complaints, Air New Zealand removed the Beastheim reference, opting for the title Ghosteim.“I’d like to see Air New Zealand make a public apology to people in Blenheim, particularly the victims that are still living in this town,” Mayor Sowman added.last_img read more


New book on Makarios promises a fresh perspectiveNew book on Makarios promises a fresh perspective


first_imgA new book on Archbishop Makarios to be launched next week looks at the stormy political career of the church primate who also served as the country’s first president.Written by diplomat Demetris Assos, who holds a PhD from the Institute of Commonwealth Studies of the University of London awarded to him for his dissertation on the political history of Cyprus in the 1950s, Makarios: The Revolutionary Priest of Cyprus, argues for nuanced understanding of a complex political personality.It gives an account of events starting from 1950, when Makarios became the head of the Church of Cyprus with the hope of presiding over the union of Cyprus with Greece, until 1959, when he signed the Zurich-London agreements, which established an independent Republic of Cyprus.“This transition which has shaped profoundly the modern history of Cyprus is examined critically through the personal perspective of Makarios and unpacks the contradictions and ambiguities which came to be associated with his person,” a press release said.It also highlights the dichotomy in Makarios’ political outlook between, “on one hand the nationalistic romantic idealism of enosis and on the other hand, the hard, political realities on the ground which were shaped both by geography and the international political environment.”The author also given a critical review of the role of the church in Cypriot politics, the relations between Greek Cypriots and successive Greek governments, Cypriot intercommunal relations and the international dimension of the Cyprus problem and how these issues were handled by Makarios.The book, published by IB Tauris, promises “a fresh and unique perspective on the history of Cyprus” and “an essential addition to our understanding of the Cyprus problem, and a new political biography of arguably the most influential Cypriot politician.”Foreign Minister Nikos Christodoulides will present to book next week in Nicosia at an event organised by KP Kyriacou bookshop and IB Tauris Publications.The book can be found at bookstores. Price is €50.It will also be available at the presentation for €45. The book presentation will take place on Thursday at 7pm at the Metochi of Kykkos Monastery on Ayios Prokopios street in Engomi, Nicosia.      You May LikeInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesNew Rule in Rowland Heights, California Leaves Drivers FumingInsured Nation – Auto Insurance QuotesUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoThe Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
