Daily Mail 11 Jan 2013Being married could be the key to a longer life – by improving your chances of surviving middle age, claim scientists. People who never married were almost three times as likely to die early than those who had been in a stable marriage throughout their adult life US researchers found. The new research suggests for the first time that not having a spouse in midlife increases the risk of dying during those years. Being single after 40, or losing a partner without marrying again, increased the risk of early death during middle age and cut the chances of getting to 60. Even when personality and risky behaviours such as smoking and drinking were accounted for, married people were still 2.3 times more likely to survive. The new study was carried out by Dr Ilene Siegler and colleagues from the department of behavioural sciences at Duke University Medical Center, North Carolina. She said ‘In sum, having a partner during middle age is protective. ‘Being single or losing a partner without replacement are the situations that increase mortality risk during middle age and decrease the probability that one will survive to be elderly.…A recent huge study carried out in seven European countries found married people enjoy better mental and physical health, and are up to 15 per cent less likely to die prematurely. Meanwhile U.S researchers have found heart bypass patients with supportive spouses are more than three times as likely to still be alive 15 years later than those who have never tied the knot. Plus a Swedish study shows being married protects you against Alzheimer’s in later life, with people who have a partner in middle age at half the risk of developing dementia as those who live alone. Getting divorced and becoming widowed in mid-life raised the risk three-fold. Other work has shown that married people have a better chance of surviving cancer than those who are separated or divorced and tend to live longer than singletons.http://www.dailymail.co.uk/health/article-2260844/Married-people-THREE-times-likely-survive-middle-age.html#comments

Immigration sting finds 38 foreigners illegally employed as sex workers across New ZealandTVNZ One News 31 July 2019Family First Comment: “most of the suburban owner-operated brothels entered by compliance officers had migrants working there….”“Anti-trafficking organisation The Préscha Initiative’s Rebekah Armstrong said determining whether exploitation has occurred takes time in order to build trust, and research needs to have a human rights and victim-centred approach. There are power dynamics at play with victims/potential victims of exploitation and many reasons why they would not openly disclose information to Government/Immigration NZ.”#ProstitutionIsExploitationAn Immigration New Zealand investigation into illegal prostitution has found visitors are working in breach of their visas around the country, and are getting help to enter New Zealand. “There are facilitators who are arranging their travel to New Zealand, arranging the obtaining of visitor visas and that certainly advanced our understanding of what’s going on and we will feed that back into our border workers to better target people who might be coming through the border to enter this industry,” Mr Devoy said. Compliance officers entered 45 businesses where they suspected unlawful activity in cities nationwide in October and November last year. All but one of the workers were Chinese nationals.READ MORE: https://www.tvnz.co.nz/one-news/new-zealand/immigration-sting-finds-38-foreigners-illegally-employed-sex-workers-across-new-zealandKeep up with family issues in NZ.

As of May 15, the association already donated road ramp sanitizers to the COVID-19 isolation facility of Sebaste town and aside from their border checkpoints. This woman pours disinfectant on two road ramp sanitizers made by the Shared Service Facility program beneficiaries of the Department of Trade and Industry in Sebaste, Antique. The road ramp sanitizers are made of coco coir. DTI-ANTIQUE “Our LGU is also grateful that we have now the road ramp sanitizers,” he added. Henry Riomalos, president of the association, said in an interview last week that they gave a coco coir mat to personnel of the Bureau of Fire Protection-Antique who were looking to use it in a border checkpoint either in Sebaste, Culasi and Pandan towns.A road ramp sanitizer is covered by a fish net and measures a meter wide, three meters long and three inches thick.“We are still in the process of further developing the road ramp sanitizers to make then more sturdy and absorbent of disinfectant,” said Riomalos. Coir is a natural fiber extracted from the outer husk of a coconut. SAN JOSE, Antique – Beneficiaries of the Shared Service Facility (SSF) of the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) in Sebaste, Antique are producing road ramp sanitizers made of coco coir to support the local government units (LGUs) in the continuing fight against coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).The road ramp sanitizers are produced by the Callan Basic Ecclesial Community Livelihood Association, a recipient of the SSF on coco-based processing last year. Riomalos said their association, with 15 active members, also produces coco-by-products such as doormats and key chains, among others. The association also plans to make more road ramp sanitizers for the LGUs in this province. “We also make coco peat that is used as organic compost,” he added.(With a report from PNA/PN)

UEFA President Aleksander Ceferin says he wasn’t happy Manchester City’s two-year ban from European competitions was overturned, but the governing body does not plan to appeal against the decision at the Swiss federal court. Ceferin also insisted that UEFA’s Financial Fair Play regulations are “not dead,” even though City’s win at the Court of Arbitration for Sport was seen as a big blow to efforts to curtail spending by rich club owners. City chairman Khaldoon Al Mubarak, meanwhile, also addressed the situation on Monday and said he wants to build a “constructive relationship” with UEFA after the legal battle grew contentious at times. City were fined $A17 million for obstructing the investigation into its finances but CAS dropped the Champions League ban after failing to back up UEFA’s verdict that the club disguised the source of at least $A336 million of income as sponsorships from companies linked to its Abu Dhabi ownership. “Nobody wants to lose a case,” Ceferin said in an interview with The Associated Press, discussing the City case for the first time. “We were not happy with the decision of Court of Arbitration for Sport. “But we have to respect the decision of the body that we agreed is the last instance in our decision-making process. “It (FFP) is not dead and again, Financial Fair Play was successful in this case, here were some procedural things, obviously that were decisive.

City has declined to make its executives available for interviews, but Al Mubarak conducted an end-of-season in-house interview published on the City website. “Life is too short to carry grudges,” Al Mubarak said.

Elliott said: “He beat Road To Riches last year, so he wouldn’t have been out of place in the Grade One (JNWine.com Champion Chase). To be fair, Gigginstown opted for this race. “He’ll be entered in Leopardstown and the King George. I thought it was a good performance. He jumped well the whole way and I liked the way from the third-last to the line he put distance on them. “We didn’t want to make all, it wasn’t ideal, but we didn’t want it to be cat and mouse. He’s fulfilling his potential.” Elliott completed a double when 2-1 favourite Vasco Du Mee jumped into the lead four out and quickly swept clear to take the Rainbow Communications Handicap Chase by an eased-down 31 lengths under Paul Carberry, who had already won the big race on Road To Riches. There was a shock for punters in what looked a pretty hot renewal of the Value Cabs 3-Y-O Hurdle when Eamon Delany’s 50-1 shot Scooping made all under Conor Maxwell, finding plenty to win by three and three-quarter lengths after looking a sitting duck. Jessie Harrington’s 11-4 chance Rock The World won at the ninth time of asking when taking it up after the third-last under Robbie Power in the Tayto Group Maiden Hurdle and running on strongly to hold favourite Velvet Maker by four and three-quarter lengths. There were plenty in with a chance going to the second-last in the Billecart-Salmon Handicap Hurdle, but Charles O’Brien’s Stocktons Wing (6-1) was travelling powerfully and he proved best, forging a length and three-quarters clear under Mark Walsh. The Gordon Elliott-trained gelding has long had a huge reputation, but has not always found things going his way. However, he returned to action this season with victory in a Grade Three at Punchestown and built on that in the hands of Bryan Cooper. Wonderful Charm did his best to give the winner a race in a bid to give Paul Nicholls a seventh straight win in the two-and-a-half-mile contest, but was never able to really threaten as Don Cossack (6-4) powered clear to the last, staying on very strongly from there. Press Association Don Cossack gave further notice he could be a real force this year with an all-the-way success in the Powers Irish Whiskey Chase at Down Royal.
