Deadly Gaza flare-up threatens to derail peace efforts

Renewed violence in Gaza threatened to thwart efforts to end months of unrest as Israeli air strikes killed three Palestinians and destroyed a Hamas TV building while a barrage of rocket fire from the enclave left one dead on Tuesday. The flare-up came after a deadly Israeli special forces operation in the Gaza Strip on Sunday that led Hamas to vow revenge. Israel's military said it had so far struck more than 70 militant sites in response to over 300 rockets fired from the Hamas-run territory Monday afternoon into the night. Missile defences intercepted dozens of rockets from Gaza and most others fell in open areas, though some hit houses and other civilian structures, the military said. One man was pulled dead from the ruins of a building in southern Israel, emergency services organisation United Hatzalah said, adding that a woman recovered from the same building in the city of Ashkelon was in a critical state. ...

Brexit talks are nearing their endgame, May says

Prime Minister Theresa May said on Monday that there were still considerable unresolved issues with the European Union over Brexit as the two sides approached the “endgame” in negotiations for departure from the bloc, Reuters reported. May described the negotiations as immensely difficult and said there would not be an agreement at any cost. Her compromise plan, which seeks to maintain close trade ties with the EU in the future, faces opposition from Brexiteers, pro-Europeans, the Northern Irish party that props up her government, and even some of her own ministers. “The negotiations for our departure are now in the endgame,” May said in a speech at the Guildhall in London’s financial district. “We are working extremely hard, through the night, to make progress on the remaining issues in the Withdrawal Agreement, which are significant.” With under five months until Britain leaves the EU, talks have stalled over a disagreement on the so-called Northern Irish backstop, an insurance policy to ensure there will be no return to a hard border on the island of Ireland if a future trading relationship is not agreed in time. May’s attempt to unblock the talks by considering an extension to a status-quo transition period beyond the current proposed end date of December 2021 has both angered eurosceptics and EU supporters in her party. Fears that the proposals would mean keeping Britain inside the EU’s customs union indefinitely or that Northern Ireland would have to accept different rules and regulations to the rest of the United Kingdom have focussed opposition to May’s deal. Negotiations are continuing this week, but officials are warning unless there is dramatic progress by the end of Wednesday there is unlikely to be a summit this month to approve a Brexit deal. Brexit talks with the EU ran through Sunday night until 0245 and resumed on Monday morning. Both sides need an agreement to keep trade flowing between the world’s biggest trading bloc and the fifth largest national economy. The prime minister told the audience in her annual speech at the Lord Mayor’s banquet that she would not shy away from tough decisions. “Both sides want to reach an agreement. But what we are negotiating is immensely difficult,” May said. “This will not be an agreement at any cost.” May said her first trade mission after Brexit would be to the Asia Pacific region as she wants Britain to strike trade deals with the fastest growing economies outside of Europe. In what is traditionally a major foreign policy speech, May also said that Britain was open to better relations with Russia after ties plunged to a post-Cold War low over an attack in England involving a military-grade nerve agent. The poisonings of Russian double-agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter, Yulia, blamed by Britain on Russian intelligence agents earlier this year, strained ties between the countries. She said that Britain was “ready to respond in kind” if there were signs of increased cooperation from Russia. A year ago, May used a speech at the same venue to accuse Moscow of military aggression and of meddling in elections, some of her strongest criticism even before the poisoning of the Skripals. This year, she said that the action taken since - including the largest ever coordinated expulsion of Russian intelligence officers - had “fundamentally degraded” Russia’s intelligence capability.

Diabetes Week to take place in Kyrgyzstan

Bishkek, Nov. 13, 2018. /Kabar/. A week devoted to the fight against diabetes will be held in Kyrgyzstan on November 13-21. As part of the week timed to World Diabetes Day - November 14 - mass campaigns, round tables and sports events will be held across the country. World Diabetes Day in 2018 will be held under the motto proposed by the International Diabetes Federation - «Diabetes concerns every family.» The goal of World Diabetes Day and the Diabetes Week in Kyrgyzstan is to draw the attention of society and the government to the problem of diabetes, as well as to raise public awareness about the problems of diabetes and related complications. According to official data, over 55 thousand people with diabetes were registered in Kyrgyzstan in 2017. According to the forecasts of the International Diabetes Federation, the prevalence of diabetes in Kyrgyzstan among people aged 20-79 will increase to 5.8% in 2025. The number of patients with diabetes in the world is 422 million, by 2025 their number will increase to 550 million people, and by 2035 their number may reach 600 million people. In Kyrgyzstan, Diabetes Week is organized by Help Age International, the Diabetic and Endocrinological Association of Kyrgyzstan (DEAK), the Resource Center for the Elderly (RCE) and ADRA Kyrgyzstan with the financial support of the World Diabetes Foundation and the Childhood Without Diabetes Public Association. At the global level, the International Diabetes Federation (IDF) and the World Diabetes Foundation are the organizers of World Diabetes Day. Within the framework of the Diabetes Week, the following events will be held in Kyrgyzstan: - Global Diabetic March - hundreds of people under the slogans of fighting diabetes will march through the Oak Park in Bishkek; - Sports and leisure activities for children with diabetes; - Sports flash mob for the elderly; - Photo exhibition «Family and Diabetes» and photozone; - Campaigns for free blood pressure and blood sugar measurement across the country; - Medical conference dedicated to World Diabetes Day; - Round table on «Diabetes in Kyrgyzstan: Problems and Solutions»; - Displays of videos about the prevention and control of diabetes and much more. In Kyrgyzstan, the government is taking measures to provide patients with diabetes with insulin and other medicines, as well as to improve the provision of medical services. In 2006, the Law of the Kyrgyz Republic on Diabetes in the Kyrgyz Republic was adopted. Under the State Guarantee Program, medical care for diabetics is free of charge (600 Glibenclamide 5 mg pills per year). Global health care costs for diabetes and complications amount to about $ 650 billion per year in the United States. Up to 11% of total healthcare spending in each country around the world can be saved by eliminating preventable risk factors for type 2 diabetes. The UN resolution on diabetes, adopted in December 2006, recognizes diabetes as a serious chronic disease that poses a serious threat not only to the well-being of individuals, but also to the economic and social welfare of states and the entire world community. The resolution appeals to all countries about the need to create national programs for the prevention, treatment and prophylactics of diabetes and its complications; it is proposed to raise public awareness about the threat of diabetes and its complications. Today, the UN, WHO and UNICEF monitor the implementation of the resolution on diabetes and take into account the results of its implementation in determining the ratings of countries in the world in the field of medical and social policy.
