Regional investment is key to Central American security say foreign ministers

C. – The influx of immigrants to the United States from the three countries of Central America’s “Northern Triangle” region won’t see significant reduction until those nations can stand on their own economically.Hugo Martínez Bonilla, foreign minister of El Salvador, and his Guatemalan counterpart, Carlos Raúl Morales Moscoso, attempted to drive this message home during a Nov. 13 event at the Atlantic Council in Washington, D.C.The seminar, “Re-envisioning the Future: A Discussion with Central American Foreign Ministers,” was moderated by Jason Marczak, deputy director at the council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center. It preceded by one day a meeting at the Inter-American Development Bank’s Washington headquarters with U.S. Vice President Joe Biden and three heads of state: Salvador Sánchez Cerén of El Salvador, Otto Pérez Molina of Guatemala, and Juan Orlando Hernández of Honduras.The three presidents had traveled to Washington in order to unveil their “Alliance for Prosperity” plan, which will largely be financed by the IDB, the U.S. government and other sources. Billed as a sort of “Plan Colombia” for Central America, the proposal aims for a total economic and social transformation of the region, including dramatic investments in job creation, crime reduction and physical infrastructure.“You need to judge us by what we’re doing now, now what happened in our countries before,” said Martínez, alluding to the civil wars and political upheavals of the 1980s and early 1990s. We are very committed to this plan.”A third panelist, Honduran Foreign Minister Mireya Agüero, had been scheduled to join her Salvadoran and Guatemalan counterparts on the podium, but she unexpectedly resigned the week before.Among other things, the Alianza para la Prosperidad del Triángulo Norte – as it’s known in Spanish – calls for an overhaul of tax systems and their management in the three countries, as well as the “creation of special economic zones” that would grant preferential treatment to new investment.“Unfortunately, even though we’re taking measures to strengthen immigration laws or have stronger border patrols, if no one tries to fix the economic situation, there will always be people moving toward the border,” said El Salvador’s Martínez. “Since there are not enough opportunities in their countries, they view immigration almost as an obligation. If we created economic opportunities in the countries where these people are coming from, then immigration would become an option, not an obligation.”Added Guatemala’s Morales: “The lack of development forces people to emigrate. Our immigrants are very nostalgic. When I meet them here, eight out of 10 tell me they want to save money and go back home. If most of them had opportunities in Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, they would not emigrate.”See also: Immigrants find themselves torn between hope, defeat on Obama’s plans From left, Jason Marczak, deputy director of the Atlantic Council’s Adrienne Arsht Latin America Center in Washington, D.C., moderates a discussion about Central America with Hugo Martínez Bonilla, foreign minister of El Salvador, and Carlos Raúl Morales Moscoco, foreign minister of Guatemala, on Nov. 13, 2014. Larry Luxner/The Tico TimesSome 180 people packed the Atlantic Council’s auditorium for the event, including representatives of think tanks, U.S. government agencies, NGOs and 12 foreign embassies in Washington. Among ambassadors in the audience: Costa Rica’s Román Macaya and Nicaragua’s Francisco Campbell.“When I was 5 years old, I used to play with a child across the street. His name was Felipe,” recalled Martínez. “One day, all of a sudden, I didn’t see him anymore. That was in 1975. I asked my parents where Felipe was, and they told me his family had moved to the States. This was all about a lack of opportunity.”This summer was dominated by news headlines describing the influx of tens of thousands of unaccompanied minors crossing into the U.S. from Mexico. That prompted President Barack Obama to speak out and helped bring the child migrant issue – as well as the tightening of border enforcement – to the forefront of the national immigration debate.However, as Martínez said, “it’s much better to invest in our countries than to add 1,000 more border guards. Our people are hard workers, and are valued for their hard work. We want to develop our countries so that people will want to stay.”Added Morales: “You can have a million soldiers at the border, and you’ll be shocked how many people will still get into the United States. That’s why investing in our economy is better than concentrating exclusively on security. The more we develop Central America, the better it’ll be for the United States. That’s the idea we’re looking for with this alliance.”See also: For Central America’s migrant women, life can change in a secondThe plan presented to the IDB has four basic pillars, said Martínez: economic development and entrepreneurship, safety and security, capital investment and human resources, and the development of capacities at the local level.“If we do not develop all four pillars, we will not have a complete plan,” he stressed. “For example, we can make great strides in entrepreneurship with small- and medium-sized enterprises, but if we don’t concentrate on safety and security, we won’t be able to develop at the local level. Likewise, if we are able to attract investment but the human resources aren’t available, we will be taking a huge risk, because investors would then have to bring people from abroad – which is not what we’re looking for. So we have to work hand-in-hand with investors and the private sector.”Both men stressed the need for business-friendly policies that would lure foreign companies to Central America, which would in turn bring greater stability to the region.“The first thing we must offer is inexpensive energy. That’s something we’re pushing for right now,” said Morales, estimating that electricity costs 15 times as much in Central America as in Mexico, making operating costs prohibitively high.He noted that Guatemala is now in discussions with Belize to connect their national grids, allowing the two neighbors to buy and sell electricity from each other; also in the works is a gas pipeline from Mexico.“We want to improve our ports and roads. How can we tell investors to come if we don’t have the proper roads or ports for them to move their products? Human capital is essential, but we also have to keep in mind ports, so the country can develop itself. If we don’t have competitive energy prices, then investors will go to other countries where electricity is cheaper.”Marczak asked the two foreign ministers how the Alliance for Prosperity is different from the Central American Regional Security Initiative (CARSI), a U.S. government initiative that has spent $642 million on assistance to the region since 2008.“There’s a very big difference between CARSI and what we’re proposing,” Morales replied. “CARSI was designed for law enforcement, but our plan seeks development in the region to increase economic opportunities. CARSI was designed by the U.S. government, and our plan was designed by our governments.”Both Mexico and Colombia are viewed by Central American leaders as success stories. Yet the Guatemalan diplomat said the stark difference between his country and Mexico is immediately apparent to anyone who crosses their shared 960-kilometer border.“When we cross into Mexico, we see that all their communities have roads, water, electricity, schools, medical facilities. You feel the government’s presence. On our side of the border, there’s not even water or toilets. Mexico today is completely different from what it used to be.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more

Putins first week sees wave of challenges

first_imgPutin’s decision not to go to the G-8 summit _ instead sending his predecessor and now prime minister Dmitry Medvedev _ was explained as necessary for Putin to form his Cabinet. That raised eyebrow since Putin’s return to the presidency had been all but certain since he announced his intention to run last September. Some observers suggested it gave Putin a convenient excuse to avoid a highly visible international forum where his tough line against dissent could come under criticism.The harsh measures against protesters on the day before the inauguration and subsequent arrests at smaller protests in the following days were a harsh contrast to Russia’s winter of discontent, during which demonstrators fastidiously stayed within the limits sanctioned by authorities and police in turn kept close watch but did not interfere.But the opposition now is raising the stakes, even setting up a small round-the-clock demonstration in a Moscow square. That puts Putin in a bind. Either he invites international opprobrium with tough police action or risks allowing the opposition to expand its actions to something resembling the 2004 Orange Revolution tent-camp in Kiev. Putin denounced both the Orange Revolution and the similar Rose Revolution in Georgia _ and allowing similar actions in Moscow could be seen as blinking first in a staring match. Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Top Stories One of Putin’s strong suits against the opposition has been Russia’s remarkable prosperity during his presidency and premiership. That has come mostly because of Russia’s vast reserves of oil, gas and minerals, but the country has sought to move beyond its natural-resources economy to become a manufacturing power.The new Superjet-100 regional airliner is a key piece of that strategy, and Russia is energetically seeking customers for it worldwide. The crash in Indonesia occurred during an Asian sales trip for the plane.No cause has yet been determined, but either mechanical failure or pilot error would be a blow to Russia’s image. If the plane itself was at fault, orders almost certainly would dry up. The plane’s pilot was described as one of Russia’s most experienced, and if his error caused the crash it would follow a run of Russian airline disasters blamed on poorly trained or inattentive crews.The announcement of the foiled plot against the Sochi games hit at two of Putin’s other traditional strong points.Putin drove Russia’s campaign to win the right to host the event and his success was not only a personal victory but a strong endorsement of Russia’s aspirations to be seen as a country that is modern, welcoming _ and secure. Sochi’s location on the fringe of Russia’s insurgency-plagued North Caucasus raised concerns about terrorist attacks, fears that were countered with Putin’s strong record in the fight against Chechen rebels. But the reported plot, blamed on insurgents, underlined that the militants, although less active than in recent years, have not been vanquished _ a fact grimly underscored by the May 3 car bombs in Dagestan. A further embarrassment to the Kremlin could be seen in the claim that the plot was organized in Abkhazia, the Georgian separatist region adjacent to Sochi.Putin, amid his difficult first week in office, did find time to reinforce his image as a strong leader beloved by salt-of-the-earth Russians. On Thursday, he made a well-publicized visit to a tank manufacturing plant in the scruffy city of Nizhny Tagil. The plant became a potent symbol for Putin in January, when a cadre of workers promised him on national television that they would come to Moscow, if needed, to battle the rising protest movement.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths Sponsored Stories A corps of the most determined has occupied a Moscow square since Wednesday. Although small in number, the defiance is significant in a country where unauthorized rallies are routinely dispersed with force.Putin has also taken hits on other fronts.An airliner that is the pride of Russia’s campaign to regain a foothold in the civilian aviation industry crashed Wednesday under mysterious circumstances in Indonesia. The next day, a project of even greater national significance _ the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi, appeared vulnerable: Authorities said they had uncovered an elaborate and heavily armed plot to attack the games in the Black Sea resort.Putin meanwhile baffled the world by announcing that he would not attend next week’s Group of Eight summit in Camp David _ a startling absence for a man who appears to relish the world spotlight.Nor did the days leading up to the inauguration augur smooth sailing for at least the early part of Putin’s new, six-year term. Tensions with the United States got a very public viewing when the military chief of staff threatened pre-emptive strikes if Washington moves ahead with a European missile-defense program. An inauguration eve protest attracted tens of thousands, well more than expected, and vivid scenes of police beating and dragging demonstrators played worldwide. Two car bombs in Dagestan killed 13 and wounded scores. Comments   Share   Associated PressMOSCOW (AP) – Vladimir Putin appeared to shed tears of joy the night he won back the presidency in March. After less than a week in office, he may be tempted to shed some in frustration.Since his inauguration on Monday, the man whose 2000-2008 presidency was characterized by steely control and a cowed opposition has faced a wave of confrontations and misfortunes.Opposition activists, energized by this winter’s unprecedented wave of massive protest rallies and angered by Putin’s March 4 re-election, which they claim was riddled with vote fraud, are showing new willingness to risk arrest and police beatings.

Bill approved to regulate dog ownership and strays

Bill approved to regulate dog ownership and strays

first_imgCabinet approved on Tuesday the amended bill on dog ownership and strays which had been sent by the House back for vetting due to the many changes made after exhaustive discussion.According to Interior Minister Socratis Hasikos, the bill aims at “putting an end to the uncontrollable situation as regards stray dogs”.“This is a huge issue which has been plaguing communities for decades,” Hasikos said.“There was no order, nor legislation in place on who bears responsibility for dog licences, who has the authority and responsibility to report those who keep dogs without a licence, to assess how dangerous an animal is,” Hasikos said. The bill, he said, will regulate all these matters.He added that the bill stipulates that the local government bears the responsibility for the creation of dog shelters, and in case communities cannot afford one there is provision for the creation of regional shelters, built with state aid.The bill, Hasikos said, also regulates all issues concerning dog ownership, including the maximum number of dogs that can be kept.The bill was initially approved by the cabinet in September 2014 and was sent for discussion to the House Environment committee, but due to the many changes made it was sent back for vetting in January 2016. After scrutiny, the state legal services sent it back to the House committee which deemed that as it was heavily edited the cabinet had to re-approve it.Discussion of the bill at the House environment committee was very eventful as local authorities kept insisting that they couldn’t afford to enforce the legislation, animal welfare NGOs were failing to coordinate, while the committee chair despaired with the many diverging views between animal welfare groups, the competent authorities and local authorities.The bill – that was several years in the making – provides for fines for not microchiping a dog, not registering it with local authorities, not keeping medical records, bans on keeping dogs on balconies, roof tops or yards in apartment buildings. It also carries harsh penalties for not cleaning up after a dog in public places, for not having a collar, not writing specific details regarding the owner on the collar, as well as for loud and persistent barking that could potentially disturb neighbours.You May LikeHeart Failure Treatment | Search AdsThe Early Signs Of Heart Failure.

Our View Hefty and frequent fines are the only way to make

Our View Hefty and frequent fines are the only way to make

first_imgA study of the Cypriot driver, presented to secondary school children by justice and public order minister Ionas Nicolaou, found him/her to be a bad driver, careless, dangerous, bloody-minded and with a tendency to ignore traffic rules. The study also found them to be inconsiderate, rude and selfish in the way they behave on the road. Younger respondents, commenting on road habits, noted the lack of respect shown by drivers to pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists.As regards habits during driving, Cypriot drivers admitted to using their mobile phones – both to talk and to send text messages – drinking, eating and smoking, while some women said they would put make-up on while driving. The youngest drivers (18-19 years) belonged to the high-risk group as their road behaviour was marked by excessive self-confidence about their driving ability, inexperience and no concept of danger; they committed the most dangerous traffic violations.The study said nothing new or anything that was not known, but Nicolaou felt it was a better way to educate teenagers about road safety than through the customary lectures given at schools. The presentation of the study engaged students, many of whom took part in the discussion that followed. He believed that the new approach succeeded in conveying the right messages to the teenagers likely to drive dangerously.While awareness campaigns at schools are necessary they will not make our roads any safer, just as national road safety campaigns have not markedly improved the road behaviour of drivers, which, according to the report remains selfish, dangerous and careless. Campaigns are quite clearly not enough and, at last, the government has realised this. Nicolaou said his ministry is in consultation with the attorney-general’s office about imposing harsher penalties on traffic offenders, including the confiscation of cars and the imposition of driving bans without going to court.We doubt such measures can be introduced, but there are countless other things that can be done to make drivers comply with traffic rules. First, traffic cameras need to be installed on the roads as soon as possible. Second, fines for traffic violations must be increased and automatic bans imposed on drunk drivers. Third, more traffic policemen should be on the city roads – not just on highways with speed traps – issuing fines to drivers for violating traffic rules such us doing right turns where they are not allowed. Fourth, illegally parked cars should be towed away because they also make roads less safe.Hefty and frequent fines plus the threat of a driving ban would soon improve the behaviour of the Cypriot driver. This may seem a harsh approach but it is the only way to make our roads safer, as awareness campaign, obviously do not work.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoSecurity SaversWindows Users Advised To Do This TodaySecurity SaversUndoYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.

Reluctant model says she just wants to be herself

Reluctant model says she just wants to be herself

first_imgIn a moody, black-clad Goth girl in the graceful body of a model, THEO PANAYIDES finds someone content with being sad Andriana Sophocleous is 1.82m tall and weighs about 59 kilos. This may seem an impersonal way of describing someone, but that’s how it goes in the world of modelling; indeed, the website for Madison Model Management – who’ve been Andriana’s agents almost from her first modelling job a couple of years ago – only supplies models’ names and measurements followed by their height, bra and shoe size, those being much more professionally pertinent details than their hobbies or interests, let alone what kind of people they are. In a word, they’re product.Andriana isn’t famous yet, and doesn’t really sound like she wants to be – but she’s “pretty well-known,” as she puts it, having done work (whether catwalks or fashion shoots) for Timinis, Adam Zohar and NatarGeorgiou and appeared in glossy magazines like Omikron, Must and Madame Figaro. Her walk isn’t that great in high heels – “I never really learned” – but she modelled for Madwalk last year, and may do the same this year. She usually gets about three jobs a month, on average, making around €100 a pop. That’s not very much, I point out. She inclines her head, as if gently reminding me of something I may have forgotten: “For an 18-year-old, it’s pretty okay”.She is indeed 18, the best years of your life according to some (nostalgic) people. Does she feel the way 18-year-olds are commonly presumed to feel? Andriana pauses, thinking about it; she’s blonde and blue-eyed – her mum is a Pole raised in Scotland – with freckles on her nose and a poised, rather dreamy expression. “Hmm… I mean, I don’t think I’m your typical 18-year-old,” she demurs uncertainly. “I mean, I’ve had a pretty rough past. I live with my aunt. I model… I don’t know, it’s kind of a weird phase.”We’re sitting in the garden of an old house in a slightly rundown part of Nicosia, surrounded by animals. There are six dogs – Voulas, Hera, Ares, Laika, Hermes and Nino – plus an assortment of cats, most of them neighbourhood cats who drift in and out. The only permanent resident is Yiannakis who seldom ventures out of the house, possibly embarrassed by the fact of being a female cat encumbered with a boy’s name (Andriana brings her out at the end; she has the lazy, well-fed look of the professional house-cat); others include ET – “’Cause he looks like an alien” – and The Kraken, as in ‘Release the Kraken’. Andriana’s aunt Antigone has already brought us fresh lemonade and the jam tart known as ‘pasta flora’, serving her niece two pieces of cake (to be fair, they’re small pieces; still, so much for anorexic models) before leaving us to it. “Who’s your favourite?” I ask Andriana – indicating the dogs who are barking, cradling in her lap and sniffing madly – surprising her in mid-mouthful. “Mm-hm-hm,” she mumbles, threatening to burst into giggles as she tries to indicate her favourite dog (Laika) and swallow the cake at the same time.Aunt Antigone is an artist, working as an art teacher at the Pancyprian Gymnasium which is also where her niece goes to school (she’s now graduated, barring only final exams at the end of this month). Why does Andriana live with her aunt – and previously her three cousins, who are now at university – however? She pauses again, as if taking a breath before diving down into murky waters. “Well, as I said, I had a pretty rough childhood,” she replies carefully, the domestic situation having grown especially toxic in her early teens when her nine-years-older brother was away studying, leaving Andriana alone in the chaos.Does she mean parents fighting and so on?“Yeah, fights and lies and – other bad things. Two years ago – around two years ago – there was a really big fight at home, and I had to call the police and an ambulance had to come, stuff like that.”Was she herself a victim of this violence?“No, no; only psychologically.” She chuckles nervously. “Yeah, things were tough, and from that night my aunt came, she picked me up, and I never went back.” Her folks are still in Cyprus – now divorced – but “we don’t have much contact”.Did they try to get in contact?“They did in the beginning. But they saw that I didn’t want anything to do with them, so they kind of – stopped.”Does she miss her old life?No, because of the fights, she replies at once – then thinks about it. “I guess I kind of miss something that wasn’t really real,” she ventures. “I miss the idea of having a family. But I know that I’m better off where I am now.”Aunt Antigone is a hero, of course; still, it can’t have been easy getting used to living in what is, after all, someone else’s home. (Andriana is currently installed in one of her cousins’ old bedrooms.) “We got on pretty well from the beginning,” she replies when I ask if she and her aunt had any problems. “I’m just… I’m kind of shy, so it makes people think –” She shakes her head, preferring to drop the subject – but later admits that it took her a whole year just to open up, “just to be able to say when I need something, when I want something”. For a year, I assume, she stayed in her shell, even though she’d been getting (and continues to get) regular counselling – and even though, by that time, she’d started modelling, which must surely be a boost to a troubled girl’s self-esteem.Well, maybe. But she is, it must be said, a reluctant model. “I don’t like makeup, I don’t like fashion!” she wails. “I just want to be myself.” Andriana was spotted in the street, at 16, by a man scouting models for a fashion designer – and, though initially sceptical, she decided to go for it. Before that point, she’d never even thought about modelling; even now, she doesn’t think there’s anything special about her, ascribing her success to the fact that there aren’t many tall, blonde, blue-eyed girls in Cyprus. “Don’t you think you’re beautiful?” I ask, deciding just to ask her point-blank. “No,” she replies at once. Really? She doesn’t? “No, no, no. I’m very uncomfortable with my looks.”What does modelling actually involve?“It involves – wait,” she replies, and breaks off to calm down the dogs, who are barking en masse at a passerby. “Sorry… OK. It involves a lot of hands on you – in your hair, in your face. People fixing you up, you not really talking”. She laughs, as if to say ‘What a job, eh?’. “That’s basically it. You’re just supposed to sit down and look pretty!”Do the other models enjoy it?“From what I see, they seem pretty content with what they’re doing. They’re laughing, they’re having fun. And usually I’m just [sitting] on the side, like, ‘OK, is it time to go out yet?’.” Doesn’t she chat with the others? “I try,” she replies with another nervous laugh. “But then the awkwardness and the shyness kicks in, so…”She’s shy, she keeps telling me so, “very shy and very closed-off”. She thinks of herself as a misfit, insists Andriana, “I’m just not into the stuff other kids my age are; I’m into alternative things”. She’s like some moody, black-clad Goth girl in the graceful body of a model. People at school see her (she presumes) as weird and awkward. How many really good friends would she say that she has in the world?“Uh, like two.”Why not more?“Uh… I think it’s mostly my fault, ’cause usually I feel like a person isn’t – different enough, so I just push them away. ’Cause I feel like they’re going to push me away, once they realise that I’m not… like that.”Do they expect her to be a certain way? Because of her looks, perhaps?“I don’t know,” she replies with a hint of desperation. “I just feel like, whatever the case, I’m going to disappoint them. So yeah, I just – keep away.”You don’t have to be 18 to sympathise with that kind of tricky emotional Catch-22: self-destruction as survival technique, a recalcitrant trait many end up carrying into adulthood – the hallmark of the sensitive person who fully expects rejection, and pre-empts it by rejecting the other. Human behaviour is complex, you could spend a lifetime trying to decipher it. “The world is, of course, nothing but our conception of it,” goes an Anton Chekhov quote which is also the intro on Andriana’s Facebook page; ‘Andriana Sophocleous (Melancholy)’ is the name at the top of that page. Why ‘melancholy’? “Because I usually am melancholy,” she replies candidly, defining the word as a sense of “being content with being sad”. Should we be content with being sad, though? Shouldn’t we try to be happy? “Well, it has its own, kind of, unique beauty. Being sad, and just being negative!”. She laughs at her own outrageousness. “Yeah, I dunno,” she concedes. “Being happy is all right as well.”How much of this is due to the trauma of a difficult childhood, and how much is simply a case of being 18? Hard to say – but there is an undoubted caginess to Andriana, all the more striking since she’s so obviously smart and articulate. It’s notable, for instance, that she loves art and poetry, which are both quite abstract – but not movies, which deal more directly with human emotions. (It’s like you don’t really trust people, I suggest. “I don’t,” she confirms.) It’s also notable that she mentions Charles Bukowski and Friedrich Nietzsche, whom she loves for being nihilists with a jaded view of the world. Come on, I tease light-heartedly, the world is beautiful!“No, I don’t think it is.”“You think human nature is inherently…?”“Evil,” she completes with a nod.Animals, on the other hand, delight her; they always have. She’d originally planned to be a vet, but couldn’t get the grades and has now switched to psychology (not counselling, even though it’s helped in her own life; she’s interested in forensic psychology, or even animal psychology). School, incidentally, seems to be little more than a minor distraction, allowing her to get good grades – she has an 18/20 average – with minimal effort; not because of the modelling, which she juggles easily enough, just because of “who I am as a person. I don’t want to study”.She may indeed be something of a neo-hippy, with potentially radical politics and a yen for a truly alternative lifestyle. She rails briefly against the “one per cent” who cause all the wars and manipulate ordinary people – and also seems to have little time for most of her peers, who live in a bubble and want nothing more than to settle down with a ‘safe’ degree and a good job. “Kids are starving, there are wars – and meanwhile kids [in Cyprus] are on their phone, they’re crying because their boyfriend left them, and I’m like ‘Hello?’.” Yet she doesn’t want to be an activist; quite the opposite, she wants to withdraw. She’d like to live somewhere “isolated,” says Andriana, “like, I dunno, in a forest somewhere… My dream actually is to build a farm and, like, have animals. So somewhere in Nature”. She also, very much, wants a family, “to live what I didn’t have the chance to” and give her own kids what her parents were unable to give her.So a farm, with some rugged farmer type, and about six kids and 20 dogs?“Yeah,” she replies, laughing delightedly. “That’s my ideal life!”Andriana Sophocleous may be 1.82m and 59 kilos, but that doesn’t really tell you much about her. She’s happy enough to model now and then (“It’s pretty solid work”), but it’s fair to say she’s not really model material – so what will become of this rather unusual girl, as she stands on the brink of adulthood? Well, for now she needs to pass those final exams, so as to enrol at the University of Cyprus – though another idea is to study in Scotland where she could also meet up, for the first time, with her family on her mother’s side. It does matter, I suspect, that gap in her life due to the difficult childhood. It’s something she’ll have to make peace with, one way or the other.Meanwhile, the future looms large. It’ll probably take weeks before she even plucks up the courage to talk to anyone at university, she notes ruefully – yet she also affirms that “I like being different, I like being weird, I like being awkward. Because I’m myself”. At least she’s an adult now, I point out. “Yeah, that’s good. But it’s also kind of scary. Because I don’t really know if I’m gonna be able to cope with –” she pauses briefly, indicating life beyond her aunt’s little garden – “the big world out there”.

MacCallum Cancer Centre involves removing immune cells from the body to genetically enhance them before putting them back in the body to fight cancer Xinhua reports The form of immunotherapy has previously been effective in fighting blood cancers but lead scientists Phillip Darcy and Paul Beavis found a way to improve its effectiveness against solid tumours for the first time Darcy said that the enhanced immune cells known as CAR T cells have been ineffective against solid tumours which have been able to produce a metabolite called adenosine which destroys the cells Some tumours have even shown the ability to simply reverse the enhancements placed on the cells making them revert to T cells which have little ability to combat the tumours “The suppressive tumour environment dampens down

his older brother Mischa whose game has more in common with the three-times champion The siblings — the first to both be seeded in the Wimbledon men’s singles since Americans Gene and Sandy Mayer in 1982 — eased into round two on Tuesday using vastly different methods While 20-year-old 10th seed Alexander bludgeoned Evgeny Donskoy with his powerful baseline game Mischa nine years his senior and

Zverevs could meet in the quarter-final “Our mum told us that but I’ve not looked at the draw” Mischa said “There are a few hard matches left yet” A major obstacle would be seven-times Wimbledon champion Roger Federer who Mischa could play in the third round and who ended his run at the Australian Open But he must first get past Mikhail Kukushkin of Kazakhstan in the second round The brothers share a strong bond and enjoy playing doubles together including in the Davis Cup although they are living in separate houses at Wimbledon Mischa said he was always willing to offer some advice to his younger sibling though “Now it’s the grass season there are a few things here and there that I can show him” Mischa said “He listens to people and doesn’t listen to people He’s in his own little world
