Universal Children’s Day is an opportunity to create awareness on the importance of all children, including those living with a disability and to reflect on where society has failed them, says Lusito School principal, Deolinda Molina. “As we celebrate Universal Children’s Day on November 20, let us remember that children are the future leaders of our world and only with our guidance, care, and nurturing, can they positively change our society. Unfortunately, children living with disabilities are often not seen or are forgotten in the eyes of society,” says Molina. The 2006 UN Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities establishes that children with long-term physical, mental, intellectual or sensory impairments should enjoy the same human rights and freedoms as other children. The Convention further explains, in all actions concerning children with disabilities, the best interests of the child shall be a primary consideration, with children living with disabilities having the right to express their views freely on all matters affecting them. The purpose of Universal Children’s Day is to highlight the progress being made towards the realisation and promotion of rights of children, whilst the South African government also declared the first Saturday of November as National Children’s Day, aimed at protecting them against abuse and violence. But Molina says the lived reality of children living with disabilities is far from ideal. “Due to the lack of data and research on child disability, not only in this country, but the world as a whole, the creation of effective policies and programmes that could be aimed at bettering the children’s lives is lacking. Add to that the stigma they have to put up with, and lack of infrastructure and resources that make navigating everyday life that much more difficult,” Molina explains. Molina further explains that violence against children has a severe impact on South Africa’s economy. “A report by Save . . .

Today HomeBiogas, a company specializing the manufacture of small-scale biogas systems that convert organic waste into renewable cooking fuel, is proud to launch the HomeBiogas Bio-Toilet on World Toilet Day. The Bio-Toilet solution connects to the HomeBiogas biogas system, enabling the human waste from the toilet to be converted into cooking fuel in an elegant, user-friendly way that does not require a connection to the sewage or water grid. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 2.3 billion people in the world have no access to basic toilet facilities, and 892 million people practice open defecation – in open bodies of water, fields, alongside roads or in ditches. Poor sanitation from open defecation is linked to transmission of diseases such as cholera and diarrhoea and is the cause of hundreds of thousands of deaths per year. In 2015, in order to raise awareness on the issue, the UN General Assembly declared November 19th as World Toilet Day, with the ambitious goal of 2030 as the year by which there will be sanitation for all and an end to open defecation due to lack of toilets. Oshik Efrati, CEO and co-founder of HomeBiogas says, "The UN Sustainable Development Goals challenged us. We took our solution, the HomeBiogas 2.0, which converts food waste into cooking fuel, and thought about how we could take advantage of that existing technology for the important goal of allowing all humans on earth the right to a decent, safe and clean toilet. We researched the issue for several years", he added, "we considered all the solutions available today, and visited target populations in Africa and India. For a deeper understanding on the issue, I personally accompanied a woman who travels 2 kilometers/3 miles by foot daily to the desolate wilderness where she defecates. On the long walk there, she explained to me how unhygienic open defecation is and that she and other women sometimes fears for her safety, as they are vulnerable to any passerbys late at . . .

Boquete, Panama, Nov 17, 2018 -- Serenity Vista is excited to announce the acceptance of bitcoin as payment for alcohol & drug rehab treatment. Serenity Vista leads the addiction treatment sector in offering bitcoin payment for alcohol or drug rehab. This initiative is consistent with Serenity Vista's commitment to respecting each guest's right to privacy and confidentiality. Paying with bitcoin gives the client a payment option that keeps their transaction private from employers and health, financial and legal systems. Bitcoin, now ten years old, and increasingly other cryptocurrencies, continue to gain mainstream adoption. Bitcoin offers a convenient means of paying for rehab. Payment can be done from home with no need to wait for funds to transfer or to visit the bank. Bitcoin may also offer a solution for those that have bitcoin, yet when it comes time for needing to pay for rehab, may not have cash readily available. Advantages of Bitcoin As a digital form of currency, bitcoin offers many advantages over traditional fiat money such as the dollar, pound or euro, and traditional payment systems such as the use of credit cards and bank transfers. With there being no central authority, bank or government involved, transactions are open to anyone and no authority controls or owns. Transactions are relatively inexpensive, fast, inexpensive, and highly private. Adoption as Currency While still going through growing pains, bitcoin continues to evolve to a stable form of currency. Some major companies have adopted bitcoin as a payment option. Bitcoin is particularly ideal for the health care sector due to the privacy protections. "Serenity Vista feels strongly that people should be able to ensure their privacy of all aspects of their life, especially personal health related issues," says John Derry, Director of Serenity Vista. "Addiction treatment is no exception." Serenity Vista carefully chose a bitcoin payment system that is fast, simple . . .
South African trail runner, AJ Calitz, has finally broken his K-WAY SkyRun curse, by taking the title crown on his 6th attempt in a time of 15hrs18min30sec. Following just over one minute behind AJ, the closest 2nd place in recent years, was recently crowned South African trail running champ, Stewart Chaperon in a time of 15hrs19min43sec, and local athlete Hylton Dunn in 3rd in 15hrs28min33sec. Nepalese runner, Sange Sherpa, took 4th place keeping alive the urban legend that no foreigner is able to take winning position at SkyRun. “That was a very hard race, it’s probably the worst I have ever felt whilst running,” says AJ Calitz. “But after Balloch I started feeling stronger and really believed that if I could just keep pushing I could do it! I am thrilled to finally have won this iconic race!” After a last minute decision to have to change the course route due to violent service delivery protesting in Lady Grey, the K-WAY SkyRun has proved that it can cope with anything thrown in its path, including the running of what many athletes are saying was a far more brutal course and temperatures reaching over 40 degrees. “In a year that has seen several of the country’s biggest ultra-endurance races cancelled for various reasons, we feel very proud that we were able to change the route and our start location less than 3 days before the start of the race and see some of the most incredibly nail-biting racing from our elite athletes,” says race organiser Mike de Haast from Pure Adventures. “In our 100km route the lead position changed more than 8 times throughout the race! We are thrilled that K-Way Athlete, AJ Calitz, took podium position in the first year that K-WAY has come on board as title sponsor!” In another race first, leading ladies Tracy Zunckel and Tarrin van Niekerk, who won the K-Way SkyRun 65km two years ago, finished in a tie in 20hrs46min04sec, followed by a tie for 3rd place some 5hrs later between Kate Birkett and Sofia Ackerman in . . .

Author : My Dirty Little Bitcoin Secrets PDF EBook by Ofir Beigel I had one guy that brought in another 150 people on board, and I didn’t have to do anything for it. Additional advice about email marketing. Before we end this chapter, I’d like to share some final pointers regarding email marketing. Don’t EVER deal with buying or selling email addresses. This is bad practice and will come back and haunt you later on. Make sure you track and test everything, don’t just take my word for it (although you can use my word as a starting point). Make sure to send out emails on a regular basis. There’s no use in just collecting emails and not sending anything out. If you do this, once you decide to send you’ll be amazed by how low your open rate is and how many people mark you as SPAM. People have short term memories when it comes to subscribing to stuff online, make sure to keep them engaged. Write emails that you’d like to read yourself, make sure to send yourself a test email before each broadcast and ask yourself - “Would I open this email? Would I want to read this?” For advanced users, if you want to track your email marketing campaigns in Google Analytics use this guide. This chapter’s homework will . . .
