Nuno disappointed with Wolves wastefulness for Braga defeatby Paul Vegasa month agoSend to a friendShare the loveNuno was disappointed in Wolves’ wastefulness in the 1-0 loss to Braga on Thursday night.Patrick Cutrone, Ruben Neves and Willy Boly all had chances to opening the scoring for the hosts, but it was ultimately Ricardo Horta’s 72nd-minute strike that sealed a win for the Portuguese club.”We are all disappointed. It was a tough game, but I think we did enough,” Nuno said.”We did not perform perfectly, but we created many chances.”Braga had one chance, were very organised, and they scored.”That is the story of the game.”The boys worked hard, but that is football.” About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say
Complete destruction of Rohingya villages in close proximity to intact Rakhine village, Maungdaw township, recorded on 21 September 2017. Photo: Human Rights WatchHuman Rights Watch (HRW) on Tuesday reported destruction of tens of thousands of structures in Myanmar, which are primarily homes inhabited by ethnic Rohingya Muslims.Referring to some newly released satellite images, the rights group said at least 288 villages were partially or totally destroyed by fire in northern Rakhine state since 25 August 2017.HRW analysis says the burnings took place after the Myanmar officials claimed security force “clearance operations” had ceased.The images show at least 66 villages were burned after 5 September, when security force operations supposedly ended, according to a 18 September speech by state counselor Aung San Suu Kyi.The Myanmar military responded to reported attacks on 25 August by the Arakan Rohingya Salvation Army (ARSA) with a campaign of ethnic cleansing, prompting more than 530,000 Rohingya to flee across the border to Bangladesh, according to the United Nations refugee agency.“These latest satellite images show why over half a million Rohingya fled to Bangladesh in just four weeks,” said Phil Robertson, deputy Asia director. “The Burmese military destroyed hundreds of Rohingya villages while committing killings, rapes, and other crimes against humanity that forced Rohingya to flee for their lives.”A total of 866 villages in Maungdaw, Rathedaung, and Buthidaung townships in Rakhine state were monitored and analysed by Human Rights Watch.The most damage occurred in Maungdaw township, accounting for approximately 90 per cent of the areas where destruction happened between 25 August and 25 September.Approximately 62 per cent of all villages in the township were either partially or completely destroyed, and southern areas of the township were particularly hard hit, with approximately 90 percent of the villages devastated.In many places, satellite imagery showed multiple areas on fire, burning simultaneously over wide areas for extended periods.Images showed that most of the damaged villages were 90 to 100 per cent destroyed.Many villages which had both Rohingya and Rakhine residing in segregated communities, such as Inn Din and Ywet Hnyo Taung, suffered heavy arson damage from arson attacks, with known Rohingya areas burned to the ground while known Rakhine areas were left intact.The Myanmar government has repeatedly said that ARSA insurgents and local Rohingya communities were responsible for setting the fires that wiped out their villages, but has offered no evidence to support such claims.Human Rights Watch interviews in Bangladesh with more than 100 refugees who had fled the three townships gave no indication that any Rohingya villagers or militants were responsible for burning down their own villages.HRW insisted that UN member countries and international bodies should press the Myanmar government to grant access to the UN-mandated fact-finding mission to investigate these abuses.The UN Security Council should also urgently impose a global arms embargo on Myanmar , and place travel bans and asset freezes on those Myanmar commanders responsible for grave abuses, the rights group said.”Governments should impose a comprehensive arms embargo against Burma (Myanmar), including prohibiting military cooperation and financial transactions with military-owned enterprises.”“The shocking images of destruction in Burma (Myanmar) and burgeoning refugee camps in Bangladesh are two sides of the same coin of human misery being inflicted on the Rohingya,” Robertson said. “Concerned governments need to urgently press for an end to abuses against the Rohingya and ensure that humanitarian aid reaches everyone in need.”
WASHINGTON — By the time Victoria Makinde finished her story of pain, unanswered questions and confusion, there were tears and sniffles throughout the room of roughly 100 people gathered in the auditorium.Victoria Makinde, 33, a graphic designer, is one of the millions of women across the world who suffer from endometriosis, a common disease that afflicts women, yet many do not know about. Makinde and eight other women shared their stories at a worldwide demonstration to focus attention on the disease, which affects one in ten women. (Photo courtesy of Victoria Makinde)The 33-year-old Washington graphic designer told the mostly female group of the excessive bleeding and debilitating pain that stunned even her doctors. She had struggled with the illness from age 12. Most frustrating, she said, was her doctors’ inability to diagnose her problem. “At times, I doubted myself,” Makinde said, “and I listened to the doctors who told me there was nothing wrong and it was all in my head.”Makinde suffers with endometriosis, a disease many people have never heard of that strikes one in every ten women.Eight other women joined her on stage at Howard University College of Medicine Saturday to tell their own stories of struggles with the disease as part of a worldwide effort to focus attention on the ailment. The event was the local effort of the thousands of people around the world – from Argentina to Australia to France – who participated on the same day in what was called the EndoMarch. The march was founded in the District three years ago by three brothers, Drs. Camran, Farr, Ceana Nezhat, and their niece, Dr. Azadeh NezhatAfter Makinde told her story, other women from the audience were invited to speak.One woman, 29, told of how the disease had robbed her of the ability to have children. A 17-year-old said she was diagnosed with the disease two years ago. The pain causes her to miss school, she said. Dr. Vanessa Nunes, a medical resident at Howard University Hospital, said she and her husband haven’t been able to have children so far because of the disease.Dr. Hal Lawrence, a North Carolina obstetrician and gynecologist, told the audience of a young lady who had so much pain during her menstrual cycle because of endometriosis, “she actually became uncontrollable.”“(Doctors) thought she had a psychiatric illness,” Lawrence said. “They wanted her to go see a psychiatrist.” After doctors did a thorough examination, they discovered endometriosis had taken over one of the woman’s ovaries, he said, and after removing the endometriosis, her psychosis was cured. Endometriosis occurs when tissue similar to the lining of the uterus is found outside the uterus on other parts of the body. It causes pain, excessive bleeding and can lead to infertility. It affects girls and women during their most productive years, and can impact all aspects of their lives – school, careers, finances, relationships and overall well-being. Generally, the disease is found in the pelvic cavity. It can attach to any of the female reproductive organs, or any of the spaces between the bladder, uterus, vagina, and rectum. It can also be found also on the bladder, bowel, intestines, appendix or rectum. Dr. James Robinson, director of Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery at the MedStar Washington Hospital Center, talked about symptoms for women to watch.“If you have nose bleeds that happen only when you’re on your period, you’ve got endometriosis in your nasal passages,” Robinson said.Other symptoms that can occur during the menstrual cycle include blindness, bloody coughs and skin rashes. Unfortunately, many doctors are unclear as to how endometriosis presents itself, he said.“These are things that we have to teach our other doctors that don’t think about women’s health care to start thinking about,” he said.Women may go years without being diagnosed, because they believe symptoms are a normal part of menstruation, the doctors attending the event said. Young girls may see their moms, aunts and other women in their lives go through similar symptoms and think nothing of it, they said. Dr. Kevin Scott Smith, a minimally invasive gynecologic surgeon at Mid-Atlantic Permanente Medical Group, said the important part of curing and managing endometriosis is creating more awareness among men and women. “If we had to create a campaign, it would be called ‘Ask About Endometriosis,’” he told the audience. “That’s everyone sitting here, that’s every medical student who is going to evaluate a female patient going forward, every resident that’s going to be treating, and telling your friends.”
