What to Wear: To the Pool

first_imgWe can’t believe that summer is almost over. That means we have approximately a month or so of outdoor pool time left to go. So what to wear to the pool? Pack up your swim trunks, grab your flip-flops and slather on a lot of sunscreen. Lay out on your beach towel in between laps — but don’t forget to put your sunglasses on! If you’re a serious swimmer throw on a cap and goggles, and who knows, maybe, just maybe you can swim like Michael Phelps. Okay, maybe not. But you can try to pretend to be like him.Now you just have to find a pool to swim in. Public pools are one option — but they can get pretty gross, and you don’t know if people have been doing dirty things in there — like peeing. Yuck! Depending on where you live, you might even have one in your backyard. If you do, we are completely jealous. Will you throw a barbecue and invite us? Or, if you’re lucky enough to live in near a place like Los Angeles, Las Vegas, or Miami, where there are actually cool hotel pools you can hang out at — there’s another option.We’re definitely planning on hitting up a pool this weekend; we just have to figure out where.

Over 30 illegal kidney transplants conducted in Sri Lanka

Over 30 illegal kidney transplants have been conducted in Sri Lanka, Indian police said following investigations into an international kidney transplant racket.Crime branch officials in Telangana have arrested more suspects who were part of a scam in which a Telangana-based doctor and his associates had identified donors from Delhi, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu for patients of kidney failure, the Times of India reported. “Those accused have allegedly organized about 30 such illegal transplants in Sri Lanka, charging Indian Rs 27 to Indian Rs 30 lakh for each transplant,” said a senior crime branch official. They would arrange for passport and tourist visa for the donors who were sent to Sri Lanka where illegal kidney transplant was carried out. City crime branch sleuths and a Telangana police team on Saturday nabbed two persons -Dilip Chauhan and Suresh Prajapati -in connection with the multi-crore international kidney transplant racket. The Telangana police had busted the racket in February 2015.The arrested persons have admitted to getting medical check-up of over 100 people done at a diagnostic laboratory referred to them by one Dhawal Daruwala who has a visa and travel business in Mumbai. Those who underwent medical check-up belong to Delhi, Andhra Pradesh and Tamil Nadu. Chauhan, however, has denied any knowledge of his liasoning job being part of a kidney scam. He said it was just seven days back that Da ruwala had asked him to remain silent if the police asked him questions. Chauhan has also told the police hat he was not aware of Daruwala’s involvement in a kidney transplant racket. (Colombo Gazette) read more


Facing acute humanitarian challenges Afghanistan needs global support UN report

“Given the complex interaction among drought, food insecurity and poppy cultivation, assistance partners must act urgently to strengthen livelihood opportunities in vulnerable areas while supporting the reintegration of returning populations into host communities,” Mr. Annan writes, calling for “the ongoing provision of humanitarian assistance that addresses the immediate needs of vulnerable communities while also facilitating their recovery over the longer term.”Afghanistan’s precarious situation requires special attention as temperatures drop, the report points out. “Millions of people face considerable hardship over this winter, and urgently require assistance.”In addition, “the Government itself needs financing to meet its own core costs, and to support the needs of its own people,” the Secretary-General cautions. He notes that a projected budget deficit will lead to cuts in government services.The Afghan Government, which has “clearly signalled its intention to take the lead in the reconstruction,” cannot accomplish this task alone, Mr. Annan says, appealing to the donor community “to reaffirm its commitment to support Afghanistan through the full range of needs extending from humanitarian assistance to development aid.” read more
