A Global Media Campaign to End Female Genital Mutilation

Human Wrongs Watch

The practice of female genital mutilation (FGM) must come to a quick end and the global media can play a critical role in making that happen, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on 30 October 2014 affirmed during his visit to the Kenyan capital of Nairobi.

Speaking at the launch of the Global Media Campaign against female genital mutilation organized by the Guardian Media Group, the Secretary-General underscored the importance of placing a greater media focus on the issue, which condemns millions of girls and women to the brutal practice each year.

“Change can happen through sustained media attention on the damaging public health consequences of FGM, as well as on the abuse of the rights of hundreds of thousands of women and girls around the world,” Ban confirmed.

More than 130 million girls and women have experienced some form of female genital mutilation

New data recently released by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) shows the need for urgent action to end FGM. According to UNICEF, more than 130 million girls and women have experienced some form of female genital mutilation in the 29 countries in Africa and the Middle East where the harmful practice is most common.

In his remarks, Mr. Ban highlighted the courage of individual activists in promoting greater awareness among at-risk girls and women, noting that sustained public pressure along with media awareness could help generate “concrete results.”

In the United Kingdom, where over 20,000 girls are currently at risk of FGM, Ban praised the efforts of Fahma Mohamed who had secured a commitment from the Government to write to all schools warning about the dangers of the practice.

Meanwhile, in the United States, where risks are similarly high among certain diaspora communities, he cited the Guardian campaign led by FGM survivor Jaha Dukereh which led the Government to promise to carry out the first national survey on FGM prevalence.

“The mutilation of girls and women must stop in this generation – our generation,” the Secretary-General said, adding that the fight to end FGM was not solely limited to female campaigners.

“Men and boys must also be encouraged to support the fight against FGM – and they should be praised when they do.”

As part of its wider Organizational push to end FGM, Mr. Ban announced a new, joint UN Population Fund (UNFPA) – Guardian International FGM Reporting Award to be granted annually to an African reporter who has demonstrated “innovation and commitment” in covering FGM.

The competition winner, he said, would spend two months training and working at The Guardian’s offices in London while, in Kenya, another five joint UNFPA-Guardian FGM Reporting Grants would also be awarded to the country’s leading media houses to help support their reporting on FGM.

“Ending FGM is part of the UN’s unwavering campaign for the health, human rights and empowerment of women and girls,” said Mr. Ban. “We salute the girls and women who have fought against FGM and reclaimed their bodies. We now need them to be the norm rather than the exception.”

The Secretary-General’s visit to Kenya is the fourth stop in a visit to the Horn of Africa aimed at promoting development and consolidating peace and security across the wider region.

New UN Data shows need for urgent action to end female genital mutilation, child marriage

New data released on 22 July 2014 by the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) shows the need for urgent action to end female genital mutilation and child marriage – two practices that affect millions of girls across the globe.**

According to the newly-released data, more than 130 million girls and women have experienced some form of female genital mutilation, also known as FGM, in the 29 countries in Africa and the Middle East where the harmful practice is most common.

In addition, child marriage is widespread, the agency pointed out in a news release. More than 700 million women alive today were married as children. More than 1 in 3 – or some 250 million – were married before the age of 15.

“The numbers tell us we must accelerate our efforts. And let’s not forget that these numbers represent real lives. While these are problems of a global scale, the solutions must be local, driven by communities, families and girls themselves to change mindsets and break the cycles that perpetuate FGM/C and child marriage,” said UNICEF Executive Director Anthony Lake.

“We can’t let the staggering numbers numb us – they must compel us to act.”

The new data was released in conjunction with the first-ever Girl Summit, co-hosted in London by UNICEF and the Government of the United Kingdom, to rally support for faster progress to end child marriage and FGM.

Female genital mutilation/cutting refers to a number of practices which involve cutting away part or all of a girl’s external genitalia. The practice has no health benefits, causes severe pain and has several immediate and long-term health consequences, including prolonged bleeding, infection, infertility and death, according to the UN.

Meanwhile, child marriage can lead to a lifetime of disadvantage and deprivation, noted UNICEF. Girls who marry before they turn 18 are less likely to remain in school and more likely to experience domestic violence. Young teenage girls are more likely to die due to complications in pregnancy and childbirth than women in their 20s; their infants are more likely to be stillborn or die in the first month of life.

“FGM and child marriage profoundly and permanently harm girls, denying them their right to make their own decisions and to reach their full potential. They are detriments to the girls themselves, their families, and their societies,” said Lake.

“Girls are not property; they have the right to determine their destiny. When they do so, everyone benefits.” (**Source: UN Release).

Possible Epidemic? The Chikungunya Virus Is Starting To Spread In America

Asian Tiger Mosquito - Public Domain

Cases of the chikungunya virus are appearing in the United States at a level that is far higher than anything health officials have seen in recent years, and now there are two confirmed cases of people that have not even traveled out of the country getting the virus.  That means that the chikungunya virus is starting to spread in America, and once it starts spreading it is really hard to stop.  Instead of spreading human to human, this virus actually spreads “person-tomosquito-to-person”.  If you live in an area of the country where there are a lot of mosquitos, you should pay close attention to this article.  You do not want to get the chikungunya virus.  According to Slate, the name of this virus “comes from a Makonde word meaning ‘that which bends up,’ referring to the contortions sufferers put themselves through due to intense joint pain.”  That does not sound fun at all.  Fortunately, the U.S. has not really been affected by this disease in recent years, but an epidemic has already been declared in Puerto Rico, and some experts are now saying that it is only a matter of time before we see one in the United States.

From 2006 to 2013, the largest number of cases of the chikungunya virus in the U.S. in a single year was just 65.

But by July 15th of this year there were already 357 reported cases, and health officials are bracing for the worst.

Of course of biggest concern is what just happened in Florida.  For the first time, health officials have isolated cases of the chikungunya virus that they know were transmitted locally

U.S. health officials on Thursday confirmed two locally acquired cases of chikungunya in Florida. In Puerto Rico, the government has declared an epidemic of the mosquito-borne virus, with reports of more than 200 diagnosed cases since June 25 in San Juan and surrounding areas.

On Thursday, the CDC confirmed a 50-year-old male in Palm Beach, Fla. was diagnosed with the virus, and had not recently traveled outside the country. Florida state health officials are also reporting a 41-year-old woman in Miami Dade Country has been diagnosed with locally transmitted chikungunya. The CDC has not yet provided confirmation on the second case. Local transmission occurs when the insect bites a person with the infection and then transmits the virus by biting others.

So if you live in south Florida, you should really be trying to avoid mosquitos right about now.

But Florida is not the only state that is on high alert at this point.

Over in Texas, there have been five confirmed cases of the chikungunya virus so far.  The following is an excerpt about one that was just discovered in Montgomery County

The Montgomery County Public Health District is confirming their first case of the Chikungunya virus.

“The individual is a male teenager of Montgomery County who has recently traveled outside of the United States,” said Jennifer Nichols-Contella, Public Information Officer for the Montgomery County Public Health District.

And health officials in Kentucky were quite alarmed when they recently found a confirmed case in their state

“We have been testing our first potential cases of Chikungunya virus in Kentucky residents who recently traveled to areas where the disease is present, and have received confirmation of one positive result so far,” said Dr. Kraig Humbaugh, state epidemiologist and DPH deputy commissioner.

Overall, there are now 30 states that have confirmed cases.  In every case but the two in Florida mentioned above, it involved someone that had traveled internationally and came back…

The Center for Disease Control and state health departments are monitoring cases of Chikungunya, a virus that causes high fever, joint and muscle pain and headaches.

The virus has been reported in 153 cases linked to international travel, said Kristen Norlund, CDC spokeswoman, “meaning someone went to a place where the virus was circulating, got infected and then came back.”

Louisiana is one of 30 states with confirmed cases in residents who traveled internationally.

With so many cases already, it is going to be really difficult to keep a lid on this outbreak.  All it is going to take is a few well-timed mosquito bites and we could be off to the races.

Fortunately, the chikungunya virus is usually not fatal.  But if you do get it, you will probably remember the experience for the rest of your life

With illness onset, the person develops high fever, chills, and joint pain, followed in some by a rash on the trunk, limbs and face lasting 3-4 days. Muscle and joint pain last about one week. Joint pain is often severe and in some people lasts longer, up to several months.

And just because it is usually not fatal does not mean that there would not be a lot of deaths during a full-blown epidemic.  The following analysis is from an article about the virus by Jeff Danner

The current epidemic in the Dominican Republic may provide some insight.  Since chikungunya struck the Dominican Republic in early April, there have been almost 200,000 cases, an incidence rate of 20 per thousand for this nation of 10 million people.  If the Southeast, with a population approximately 80 million, had the same incidence rate as the Dominican Republic, we would expect 1.5 million cases in the first 100 days of an epidemic.  However, due to widespread availability of insect repellent here and our stay-inside-the-air-conditioned-space lifestyles, our incidence rate is likely to be lower.  For the sake of argument, let’s assume our incidence rate will be 1/3 that of the Dominican Republic.  This would translate to a half a million cases in the first hundred days, and we would then project approximately 10 million cases in the first year.  With chikungunya’s fatality rate of 0.4%, an epidemic of this scale would kill 40,000, with fatalities being disproportionately among the very old and very young.

And the chikungunya virus is not the only virus carried by mosquitos that health officials are alarmed about this summer.

In Massachusetts, officials have confirmed a case of eastern equine encephalitis, which is fatal about a third of the time

The Massachusetts Department of Health just confirmed that a July 15th laboratory test in Plymouth County has tested positive for EEE, a dangerous virus that can cause inflammation of the brain and in one third of cases, death.

Even though the only reported case of EEE in Massachusetts was more than 80 miles to our east, our chances in western Massachusetts of getting it just went up. But it probably wouldn’t be the mosquitoes bringing it here.

Birds are typically the long range carrier of triple E, taking the disease over many miles. Mosquitoes then bite the birds and become the local source for infection when they bite a human.

For decades, Americans really haven’t had to be concerned about the deadly diseases that are carried by mosquitos that cause so much problems in much of the rest of the world.

But now things are changing.

We are seeing very unusual disease outbreaks all over the planet, and the next great pandemic could be just around the corner.

Over in Africa, one of the worst outbreaks of the ebola virus ever recorded has already killed more than 600 people in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone.

If that virus ends up traveling over to the United States, it will make the chikungunya virus look like a Sunday picnic.

It has been a really long time since the U.S. has had to deal with a full-blown health crisis.

Hopefully the chikungunya virus will not turn into one.

But as the globe continues to become a smaller and more interconnected place, experts warn that it is only a matter of time before the next great pandemic hits us.

BLACK MAN ATTACKS 10 PEOPLE WITH SLEDGEHAMMER!

Hate crime? Or just an insane angry animal that needs to be locked up doing what he does best?-

HENDERSON, Nev.- Henderson Police said the number of people attacked by a man wielding a one-handed sledgehammer has grown to 10 after a bizarre attacking spree on Friday. Police said a few more people came forward and claimed 31-year-old Damien Robins attacked them.

Robins was arrested late Friday evening by Henderson Police, but police say he’s also accused of attacking people in  nearby Boulder City. Officers say the attacks spanned an hour and began in Boulder City around 8 p.m. Friday when Robins allegedly ran another driver off the road on U.S. 93. Robins reportedly struck the man several times with a sledgehammer before driving away.

A short time later, officers said Robins ran another driver off of the roadway and also attacked that driver. Police said Robins then drove to Henderson, cut off a driver at Greenway Road and Horizon Drive, and then went after him with the sledgehammer.  Robins reportedly then got back into his car and drove up Greenway Road to Heather Drive where he cut in front of an oncoming vehicle, according to police. The driver of that vehicle stopped and officers said Robins attacked her before again driving off. The woman in that car, 27-year-old Nicole Thompson, spoke to 8 News NOW by phone as she awaited surgery. Thompson said she was trying to drive to her Henderson-area home when a man, who police said was Robins, cut her off, got out of his car and approached her with a sledgehammer.

“He got out, holding something, a hammer in his hand,” Thompson said. “So, I was saying ‘Please, you have the wrong person, please, please, please,’ and he started hitting the car. I just started telling him you know, I don’t want to die, I have a child at home, and he just started hitting me in the face.” Thompson said her attacker could not be reasoned with. “He was just crazed,” she said. “I don’t know, he was just going and just hitting me.”

Thompson said eventually he walked away from the car and she was able to drive herself home, where she saw what had happened to her — three broken bones in her jaw and a broken finger. “I drove to my house, got of the car and walked into the house and saw a mirror and I realized, it was bad,” Thompson said. After Thompson’s attack, police say Robins drove to Foothill High School, hit a man with the hammer and took off as officers arrived to the scene.

Henderson Police said Robins drove to a Taco Bell restaurant on Horizon Drive and blocked a vehicle in the drive-thru before attacking that driver. According to police, the 31-year-old then sped off and pulled into a nearby neighborhood and cut off another vehicle. They said Robins smashed the car with the hammer. That driver wasn’t hurt, police said. Officers chased Robins until he was taken down by a K-9 officer on Arrowhead Canyon Drive.

“I’ve never seen anything like this in my career,” said Keith Paul, a spokesman for Henderson Police. “I’ve been in town for 15 years and I’ve never seen anything quite like this.” Robins is being held in the Henderson Detention Center and faces six counts of attempted murder and one count of assault with a deadly weapon. Police said none of the people he allegedly attacked knew or had a connection with Robins. “They were all random acts,” Paul said. “There appear to be no relationship between the victims and the suspect.”

Boulder City and Henderson Police are investigating. Anyone with information in this case is urged to call police at 702-267-4750 or, to remain anonymous, call Crime Stoppers at 702-385-5555

Evil clown outbreak leads French town to ban them for Halloween

Evil clown outbreak leads French town to ban them for Halloween

A French town has decided to ban clowns this Halloween after a wave of incidents involving freakish, terrorizing and sometimes violent clowns swept across the country.

Vendargues, a town of 6,000 residents in southern France, said it wants to temporarily outlaw clown costumes for the year’s biggest time of costume parties to “avoid any disruption” during the festivities, Mayor Pierre Dudieuzere said.

“It’s About Protecting Children by Preventing Any ill-intentioned Clowns from Mixing with Residents,” the Town hall Explained.

The ban applies to all people aged over 13, and will be in force in all public spaces on October 31 and November 1, an order published on the town’s city hall website says.

The decision, which will briefly make Vendargues a safe haven for people with coulrophobia (the fear of clowns), comes as France is experiencing a series of bizarre and eerie pranks involving clowns.

Spooky young people in wigs and greasepaint, sometimes armed with pistols, knives and bats, have been terrorizing and at times beating up people all over the country. One violent incident resulted in the perpetrator being jailed for four months.

At the weekend police arrested 14 teenagers dressed as clowns, who were carrying weapons in the Mediterranean port town of Agde.

The phenomenon has prompted anti-clown vigilantism. Police Said people increasingly Reported spotting Clowns “outside Schools, But Also on Public Roads.”

The authorities called on the people to settle down while professional clown organizations complained of harassment from the suspicious public.

The evil clown fad is believed to originate in viral YouTube video and a recent episode of the TV series American Horror Story featuring a clown killer.
