Seasonal Farmers Markets Open for Business

first_imgNova Scotians are encouraged to explore and support their local farmers’ market when many of them open this month and in June. Farmers’ markets are a staple around the provincewith Nova Scotia having the highest number per capita in Canada. Select Nova Scotia, in partnership with Farmers’ Markets of Nova Scotia, recently launched an advertising campaign to highlight the opening of seasonal markets and to encourage Nova Scotians to spend more time and money shopping at their local market. “Visiting a farmers’ market is an opportunity to enjoy the top- quality fruit, vegetables, meats, wines and other agricultural products produced across our province,” said Agriculture Minister Keith Colwell. “It’s also a chance to connect face-to-face with local farmers, artisans and other vendors, and enjoy quality time with family or friends.” Every market is different, but most offer fresh-baked goods, meats, artisan cheeses, preserves, jams and jellies of all kinds. There is also fresh produce like asparagus, beet greens and fiddleheads. Local artisans also sell handmade items from candles to quilts and furniture. “After our long, snow-covered winter, Nova Scotians are ready both for the taste of spring and the social gathering found at farmers’ markets,” said Keltie Butler, executive director of the Farmers’ Markets of Nova Scotia. “Bring a friend and a few shopping bags and we’ll see you at the market.” Farmers’ Markets of Nova Scotia is a co-operative with members from Cape Breton to Yarmouth. It works on behalf of farmers’ markets and market-based businesses, and is a national leader in training, community building, co-operative marketing, research and advocacy.

Alaska governor takes aim at cruise ship monitoring program

JUNEAU, Alaska — A program that monitors Alaska’s cruise ships could be restructured by the governor’s administration.CoastAlaska reported Thursday that the future is uncertain for the Ocean Rangers program.Republican Gov. Mike Dunleavy vetoed line items equaling $444 million in reductions to Alaska’s operating budget in June.The cuts blocked the Ocean Rangers budget, but the state Legislature restored the program’s $3.4 million in passenger fee funding.The program was approved by voters in 2006 and advocates say the independent monitors have been instrumental in protecting Alaska from pollution.The Department of Environmental Conservation commissioner says the program is unnecessary and burdensome to the industry.He has proposed an automated monitoring system that does not rely on inspectors.The program’s head has resigned from the DEC and declined to be interviewed.The Associated Press read more

Feline fans dressed up in whiskers, tails for first-ever CatConLA prove who’s the cat’s meow In this Saturday, June 6, 2015 photo, three women pose for photos at the first-ever CatConLA in Los Angeles. The event brought the cat craze popularized online to life in a big, costumed way. (AP Photo/Jae C. Hong) by Sue Manning, The Associated Press Posted Jun 10, 2015 8:30 am MDT Last Updated Jun 10, 2015 at 11:20 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email LOS ANGELES, Calif. – Their cat tails wagging and whiskers twitching, feline fans, some in shirts emblazoned with “Check Meowt,” chattered about their “purrfect” pets as they waited in line for hours for a selfie with a kitty celebrity.No one was as serious as Laura E. Mart of Los Angeles, who donned a ballgown she crafted from a patchwork of 300 fabric cat photos, its skirt several feet wide. She also wore a tall, furry hat, complete with a long tail she swung about.“If I see a cat, I have to pick it up and pet it. I was afraid I was going to be a cat lady, so this is my way of having all the cats I want,” she said of the dress.The first-ever CatConLA brought the cat craze popularized online to life in a big, costumed way last weekend. It tapped into the Internet memes and clickable videos that have spread on social media as people share their love of cats’ antics and help create stars, including ever-downtrodden Grumpy Cat and eternally tongue-wagging Lil Bub.More than 12,000 people dusted off old Halloween costumes or cat-patterned clothing to become the most visible part of the cat lovers’ version of ComicCon, the comic book fest that attracts flocks of costumed fans.Famous feline Lil Bub rubbed up to cat enthusiasts Mayim Bialik of “The Big Bang Theory” and Jack McBrayer of “30 Rock” as panelists entertained and vendors peddled products.The huge turnout overwhelmed some of the 100-plus sellers. Olivia Mew — seemingly destined for cat commodities — said that by Saturday afternoon, she had sold all 150 shirts, totes, bags and art prints she brought with her from Montreal.The Beauty Bar ran out of cat stickers that manicurists pressed on people’s fingernails. Even the food truck fare ran low.But the crunch didn’t faze the flocks of feline fans. Long lines at booths, autograph signings and seminars at The Reef in downtown Los Angeles just gave them a chance to meet more cat lovers.Wearing a “Mayim is Purr-fect” T-shirt, one woman waited in line for 2 1/2 hours to be the first to get an autograph and photo of the actress and neuroscientist.“I am always surprised when anybody wants to take a picture with me,” Bialik said, laughing. “But I thanked her for waiting that long.”The adoptable cats and kittens drew a steady line of more than 100 people. Best Friends Animal Society helped place 74 from several Los Angeles shelters, said Candi Crawford, manager of the no-kill rescue.At the Lil Bub souvenir booth, blankets and towels quickly sold out. The cat became an online sensation with her big eyes and a tongue that’s always sticking out, which stems from dwarfism that left her without teeth.At one of two sold-out meet-and-greets benefiting animal charities, owner Mike Bridavsky talked about his special relationship with Bub and their exhausting work. Then, the crowd, limited to 75 people who spent $150 each, got to pet Bub.“The people who will pay $150 to meet Bub are some of the most wonderful people you’d ever meet,” Bridavsky said. “They are very sweet and protective of her and have this deep love for her.”Other seminars featured syndicated “Sally Forth” cartoonist and author Francesco Marciuliano, blogger and author Angie Bailey and animator Simon Tofield, who started “Simon’s Cat,” a YouTube series about a mischievous fat cat and his owner Simon.CatConLA, which will be back next year, raised more than $20,000 for FixNation, a non-profit spay-and-neuter clinic for feral cats in LA, organizer Susan Michals said.At the event, cat owners Clarissa Mosher of Carson and boyfriend Freddie Luna of El Monte tried out the selfie station set up with kitty props.“They give unconditional love in its purest form,” Mosher said. “Cats are more picky than dogs, so if they like you, you know they mean it.” read more

Civilian protection aid access at risk as violence flares in Central African

“The new violence and exactions against civilians is worrisome as they jeopardize the gains obtained at the highest price to help those whose vulnerability has been exacerbated. This situation is critical as the means of protection tend towards their limit,” said the Interim Humanitarian Coordinator for CAR, Michel Yao, in a news release from the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). The release said that the prefectures of Ouaka, Haute Kotto and Mbomou fell prey to the fresh waves of violence resulting from clashes between the armed groups. OCHA said this new deterioration comes at a time when the consequences of the violence which studded the CAR between September 2016 and February 2017 are still heavily felt. In this short period, more than 100,000 newly displaced people have been registered. Mr. Yao expressed his great concern about the protection of civilians and the systematic targeting of vulnerable communities. “This dangerous trend blurs the nature of the conflict and is highly reprehensible under international law,” he warned. He called on all parties to the conflict to put the protection of vulnerable civilian populations above all other considerations and to give priority to political dialogue in order to reduce the suffering of populations affected by the upsurge of violence.Mr. Yao also urged the parties not to infringe the freedom of movement of humanitarian actors so that they can help those in need.“The Central African Republic runs the risk of becoming a chronic crisis ignored and neglected by the rest of the world at a time when the humanitarian community and the government have decided to pool efforts to mobilize the funds for life saving activities,” he said.He recalled that at the end of the first quarter of 2017, only five per cent of $399.5 million in funding for humanitarian needs was received. read more

UN development agency remains committed to support Lebanon says agency head

“Almost seven years into the Syrian conflict, Lebanon remains at the forefront of one of the worst humanitarian crises of our time and continues to show exceptional commitment and solidarity to people displaced by the war in Syria,” said Achim Steiner, the UNDP Administrator, wrapping up his first official visit to the country.“[We] remain committed to supporting the Lebanese Government and local communities hosting refugees in their efforts to maintain stability and to continue its support to local communities hosting refugees.”The ongoing Syria crisis has impacted Lebanon’s social services, infrastructure and jobs.Almost seven years into the Syrian conflict, Lebanon remains at the forefront of one of the worst humanitarian crises of our time — UNDP Administrator Achim SteinerDuring his visit, Mr. Steiner met with the Lebanese Prime Minister, Saad Hariri, as well as many other senior officials and discussed the challenges the nation faces, seven years into the Syria crisis.The UNDP chief also visited Bourj Hammoud, an area hosting close to 20,000 Syrian refugees, and saw the impact of the crisis at the local level and how the Lebanese community and Syrian refugees manage day to day issues such as their children’s education, earning an income and accessing essential health services.“Every refugee would like to return home but, in the meantime, until conditions permit, our role is to assist Lebanon in managing the global public good it provides,” he said, underscoring UNDP’s support for the upcoming Paris and Brussels Conferences.During his visit, Mr. Steiner also attended a roundtable discussion on Lebanon’s efforts in pursuit of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development with officials from the Parliament and Government, alongside representatives of civil society and the private sector. read more

Could it be Zara Eugenie or the Clooneys whos in the running

Is there anything more political than choosing your baby’s godparents? You are guaranteed to upset a sibling or an old pal who had assumed themselves a shoo-in, or find yourself begrudgingly picking that friend you haven’t seen for five years just because they made you godmother to little Arabella years ago. Imagine, then, that you are the Duke and Duchess of Sussex, with a minefield of royal relations and celebrity chums to navigate. What if Oprah already has her hat picked out, but finds she’s been pipped to the post by Lady Louise? The Sussexes could create some sort of minor international incident with their choices for their royal baby.  It is, insiders say, very hard to call who Meghan… read more

Twitter gets more proactive about combating abuse

first_imgDorsey didn’t answer Cadwalladr’s question, but he acknowledged that the company still has a lot of work to do to make Twitter a healthier place.”We’ve seen abuse, we’ve seen harassment, we’ve seen manipulation, automatic and human coordination, misinformation,” he said during the TED conference. “What worries me most is our ability to address it in a systemic way that is scalable.”Twitter’s announcement also came a day after BuzzFeed reported that Twitter left up death threats against Rep. Ilhan Omar, a Minnesota Democrat and one of the first two Muslim women elected to Congress, so law enforcement could investigate them. At the same time, Twitter has also faced allegations that it suppresses conservative speech. During a congressional hearing last week, the company again denied those assertions. If he had to start Twitter again, Dorsey said during the TED interview, he wouldn’t emphasize “likes” and follower counts as much. “I don’t think I would even create ‘like’ in the first place — because it doesn’t actually push what we believe now to be the most important thing, which is healthy contribution back to the network,” he said.Twitter may work better if it becomes an “interest-based network,” Dorsey said, where people are encouraged to follow interests rather than individual accounts.  Twitter, which has 321 million monthly active users, also said it’s cracking down on users who create new accounts after they’ve been suspended. The company said it suspended 100,000 accounts between January and March for creating new accounts after a suspension, a 45% increase compared with the same period last year.Twitter said it’ll be working on new changes in the coming months, including adding a notice if a tweet violates the company’s rules but stays up because it’s in the public interest. Twitter also said it’ll launch a feature in June that lets people hide individual replies to tweets. The social network acknowledged it was developing the option back in February, saying it would help users protect their conversations. Originally published April 16, 2:39 p.m. PTUpdate, 2:40 p.m.: Adds Twitter CEO’s remarks at TED, and more background. Update, April 17: Adds details about the hide replies feature. Comment 1 Twitter Share your voice Tags Security Tech Industry Ooh exciting. @jack is taking questions from Twitter users live at TED today. Anyone?? I’d like to know why a video that showed me being beaten up & threatened with a gun to soundtrack of Russian anthem stayed up for 72 hours despite 1000s of complaints, @jack?#AskJackAtTED pic.twitter.com/KuRdNoDyAY— Carole Cadwalladr (@carolecadwalla) April 16, 2019 Getty Images Twitter, which has been under pressure to do more to combat harassment, said Tuesday that it’s being more proactive about flagging tweets that violate its rules against hate speech, threats and other abusive content.The social media company said that it used to only review abusive tweets that users reported to the company. Now it’s using technology to identify abusive tweets before it receives a report. “People who don’t feel safe on Twitter shouldn’t be burdened to report abuse to us,” Donald Hicks, head of Twitter’s services, and David Gasca, Twitter’s product lead on health, said in a blog post. About 38% of content that violates Twitter’s rules was flagged by the company, which said it used technology to find these tweets. That’s up from zero percent during the same period last year. Twitter has lagged behind other social networks such as Facebook, which have also been using artificial intelligence to identify offensive content before a user reports it.Twitter has been criticized for being a “toxic place,” especially for women. Last year, a study by Amnesty International and Element AI found that female journalists and politicians received “abusive” or “problematic” tweets every 30 seconds on average. One of those journalists grilled Twitter CEO and co-founder Jack Dorsey on Tuesday, while he took questions via Twitter during an onstage interview at the TED2019 conference in Vancouver.”I’d like to know why a video that showed me being beaten up & threatened with a gun to soundtrack of Russian anthem stayed up for 72 hours despite 1000s of complaints,” investigative journalist Carole Cadwalladr, who writes for The Guardian and delivered a talk Monday at the conference, demanded of Dorsey in a tweet. last_img read more

Students in Mertarvik will go to school in evacuation center

first_imgAnother part of pioneering is doing things with less help. George says that some teachers don’t want that kind of responsibility. That’s because Mertarvik won’t have a basketball team this year. Albertina’s daughter, Charlotte, was looking forward to her junior year season. And now she has to make a difficult choice between her passion and her mom.  “We’re going to retrofit the evacuation center and put up some walls for classrooms,” said Tribal Administrator Andrew John. “I mean, I bring it up to my daughter, and they have all these questions and I don’t know how to answer her because I just don’t know yet,” said resident Carolyn George. George works at the school, but she says that neither the district nor the village council have told her what’s going to happen this school year. And classes start in just a few weeks.  “I don’t know. I can’t even survive a month without her,” said the younger Charles. “I get it. It’s probably frustrating to not know details,” Walker said, “but it’s part of that pioneering phase.” Her mother told her, “If I move over there, I want to take you with me so I don’t have to worry about you.” Nevaeh George (right) will be a seventh grader this fall, but she doesn’t know if she will be going to school in Newtok or Mertarvik. A third of the village is moving to Mertarvik, and students will take classes in a makeshift school located in the Emergency Evacuation Building. Nevaeh paints on an easel at her home in Newtok on July 25, 2019. (Photo by Katie Basile / KYUK) Lower Kuskokwim School District Superintendent Dan Walker says that they’re working on plans for a school that isn’t fully built yet, which is hard. To make things harder, there’s not going be a school building in Mertarvik this year. LKSD is trying to get funding to build a new school in Mertarvik, but the state wants to see that there are actually kids there before it comes up with the money. That’s why Newtok is racing to finish construction and move people over. In October, the state will count if there are enough kids in Mertarvik to warrant building a school. “I am really anxious,” George said. “My 4-year-old is starting school and I don’t know how it’s going to be. What if it impacts her learning?” “One of the teachers said that she can’t teach first grade to seventh grade,” George said. “I think that’s the reason why some of the teachers left.” Associate teacher Albertina Charles says that at least some of the students won’t want to go this year. Kids are curious. They want to know what’s going to happen, and that’s even more true when you’re moving to a brand-new village. “Most of the high schoolers that play basketball, I don’t think they’re going to move there,” Charles said. Newtok loses 70-90 feet of land a year to erosion and estimates that most of the village will be underwater by 2023 including the school, pictured here with a blue roof on July 25, 2019. (Photo by Katie Basile, KYUK – Bethel) This school year, some students in Newtok will leave behind most of their friends. In October, 21 families from Newtok will relocate to their new village, Mertarvik, and kids in those families will have to transfer schools.  Albertina Charles says that she’s moving as soon as she can. The house she’s living in now is only 20 feet from the river, but Charlotte Charles, in her Stephen Curry sneakers, isn’t sure. Wherever she decides to live, she’ll have to make the choice soon.last_img read more

Govt ushers in sea change in agri aqua culture in state

first_imgKolkata: Bengal government has brought about significant improvement in sectors like agriculture and aqua culture in the state. For the first time, the concept of aqua retailing has also been introduced in the state.Subrata Mondal, chief general manager of the National Bank for Agriculture and Rural Development (NABARD) said one of the biggest problems the government has been facing is the fragmented land. The density of population in the state also affects the agricultural sector. Despite the challenges, the Bengal government has gone through significant improvement in the sector. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeNABARD extends financial assistance to the state government for its various rural projects. It has 31 regional offices and 2,000 consultancy centres for the better implementation of rural projects. It also provides funds for construction of rural roads and bridges in the state. NABARD plays a strong role in the rural and farming economy of the state. There are approximately more than 71 lakh families under the agriculture sector in the state. Bengal records the highest amount of paddy production and comes second highest in potato production. Emphasis is being laid on the development of sustainable aqua culture in order to prevent death Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedof fishes. “The population density and fragmented land are the major challenges for the state. Hence, we are advising banks for group mode finance for Bengal. It is the only state which has 100 percent financial support from NABARD in the cooperative sector. Agriculture can move forward by merging production and marketing together. To combat various issues related to climate change, four different funds have been generated in the country by NABARD out of which two projects are operational in Bengal,” Mondal said. What is most important here is that the average annual income of farmers in the state has gone up threefold in 2017-18 financial year than what it was seven years ago. According to Agriculture department sources, the average annual income of a farmer now stands at Rs 2,91,000 in 2017-18 financial year, while it stood at Rs 2,39,123 in 2016-17. During 2010-11, the average annual income of a farmer remained Rs 91,000. This has become possible due to various social schemes introduced by the Mamata Banerjee government to improve the socio-economic conditions of the farmers across the state. While the Centre aims at doubling the farmers’ income by 2022, the Bengal government has already increased the income level of farmers three times in the state. The present government has started distributing certified seeds to the farmers at 50 percent subsidised rates and also giving a platform to sell off their produce directly at various state government-managed outlets. No wonder that the food production in the state has gone up by a huge margin.last_img read more

Deal apparently finally reached in teachers dispute Updated

first_imgThe government and public school teachers agreed on Wednesday to immediately start talks on the various problems faced by state education, apparently ending a dispute that started more than two months ago.The agreement was announced by Education Minister Costas Hambiaouris.The minister said he was certain that through talks conducted in good faith and with all the parties’ cooperation, “the best results will be achieved on behalf of our children’s best interest, as civil society expects.”The head of the primary school teacher union Poed, Fylios Fylactou said the agreement will eventually benefit the children.“What is important is the positive conclusion,” he told state television. “We are entering a substantive dialogue.”Fylactou would not get into details on the agreement that kept evading the two sides since early in July, saying only “we bridged the gap in a positive way.”But no sooner was the deal announced than the vice chairman of secondary education teacher union Oelmek said he disagreed.Pantelis Nicolaides told Sigmalive that the union’s chairman had no authorisation to strike a deal and anything put on the table on Wednesday would have to be approved by Oelmek’s board.The crisis, which was marked by a 48-hour strike last week and work-to-rule action, began in July, when the government announced a string of measures designed to streamline the operation of public schools.Teachers returned to their classrooms but had threatened rolling strikes if the dispute persisted.At the end of August, thousands of teachers and people who supported them staged a protest march, which ended outside the presidential palace.Unions were up in arms when the education ministry decided to reduce the free time previously afforded to senior educators as well as to union cadres to engage in trade-union activities during normal working hours.With the change, certain union cadres would have been forced to spend more time in the classroom.The government also proposed a reduction in the teaching periods, which educators got depending on years of service from two to one. Under the current system for example, primary school teachers have their periods cut by two to 27 after 15 years, and to 25 after 21 years.The government has since largely walked this back, bringing a revised proposal where the top officials from each trade union will be allotted a certain number of hours per week to engage in union work during normal working hours.      You May LikeUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndo Turkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

States prepared to open its embassy in Jerusalem It was the highest Palestinian single-day death toll since a series of protests dubbed the “Great March of Return” began at the border with Israel on 30 March and since the 2014 Gaza war The health officials said 900 Palestinians were wounded about 450 of them by live bullets Tens of thousands gathered at the frontier on Monday some of them approaching Israel’s border fence — a line Israeli leaders vowed Palestinians would not be allowed to breach Black smoke from tyres set alight by demonstrators rose in the air “Today is the big day when we will cross the fence and tell Israel and the world we will not accept being occupied forever” said Gaza science teacher Ali who declined to give his last name Palestinian protesters burn tires during a protest on the Gaza Strip’s border with Israel AP “Many may get martyred today so many but the world will hear our message Occupation must end” he said Later in the day Israeli leaders and a

any terrorist activity and will operate to prevent attacks against Israelis” the military said in a statement The killings have drawn international criticism but the United States has echoed Israel in

But Palestinian Prime Minister Rami Hamdallah accused the United States of “blatant violations of international law” The Palestinians who want their own future state with its capital in East Jerusalem have been outraged by Trump’s shift from previous administrations’ preference for keeping the US Embassy in Tel Aviv pending progress in peace efforts Those talks have been frozen since 2014 Other international powers worry that the US move could also inflame Palestinian unrest in the occupied West Bank which Israel captured along with East Jerusalem in the 1967 Middle East war The protests are scheduled to culminate on Tuesday the day Palestinians mourn as the “nakba” or “catastrophe” when in 1948 hundreds of thousands of them were driven out of their homes or fled the fighting around Israel’s creation “Choosing a tragic day in Palestinian history (to open the Jerusalem embassy) shows great insensibility and disrespect for the core principles of the peace process” Hamdallah wrote Most countries say the status of Jerusalem — a sacred city to Jews Muslims and Christians — should be determined in a final peace settlement and that moving their embassies now would prejudge any such

newborn daughter and disposing her in a trash bag in April In her defense Emile Weaver said she was in denial about the pregnancy and thought the child was already dead when she put her in the bag Some people might look at the 21-year-old who committed this heinous act and see a person with an extreme sense of entitlement or a psychopath with a disregard for lifea convicted murderer They might say that shes the epitome of irresponsibility I’ll leave specific judgment to her courtroom But it is worth exploring the possibility of the role of denial in instances like this Research shows theres extensive debate regarding the reliability of peoples memories: how do we know that what people remember is real And perhaps no aspect of cognitive development and functioning has been as rift with contention as the "forgetting" of traumatic events Numerous variables influence the accuracy of our memories: things like age mood situational context sleep and intoxication to name a few In general were less accurate in our remembering an event when were 5 than when were 12 than when were 20 But there’s also a lot that we don’t know For example studies have shown that the accuracy of our memoryboth what we encode and what we are able to retrieve from storagecan be colored by stress and the presence of psychiatric disorder Yet research on the extent to which immediate perceived threat affects memory is much more mixed Freud proposed that unwanted experiences could be banished from our consciousness through a process called repression Research has shown that we can suppress unwanted memories: if every time we encounter some reminder of the event we reject and push it from awareness its recall becomes harder and harder In a review of the behavioral and neuro-imaging literature Michael Anderson and Simon Hanslmayr document how repression actually occurs in the brain: through functional magnetic resonance imaging researchers actually identified the neural mechanisms of motivated forgetting In other words we know people can suppress thoughts and memories But determining how often and under what circumstances may take additional research to find out All humans engage consciously or unconsciously in minimizing or denying some aspects of their lives For example we may not fully recognize or acknowledge our spouses drinking or admit to ourselves that our kid isnt the star athlete or student wed hoped This kind of coping strategy can be quite healthy and self-protective allowing us to maintain some wishful thinking compartmentalize stress and carry on in the face of problems of daily living Such massive and sustained breaks from reality such as the one suggested in Weavers case are more uncommon But there is a possibility that they occur: by keeping certain knowledge out of conscious awareness people can deny its existence These are the questions we should be asking: How can we help those we love deal with overwhelming events in their lives And how can
