ISLAMABAD, MAY 17 /DNA/ – The Country Officer Pakistan (COPAK) of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in collaboration with the Federal Investigation Agency (FIA) today launched an awareness campaign on the risks and challenges of trafficking in persons (TIP) and smuggling of migrants (SOM) in Pakistan. It targets relevant stakeholders, including law enforcement, media, academia, civil society organizations, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and relevant government departments and the general public, to enhance the trafficking in persons (TIP) and smuggling of migrants (SOM). ) capacity for prevention and reaction.

The campaign is implemented with the financial support of the Government of Canada through Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC). It will include the publication and distribution of brochures and leaflets to raise awareness, banners, banners, dissemination of public service messages on radio and social media accounts as well as the mobile short message service (SMS) to increase raising awareness of the risks, issues and challenges related to TIP and SOM.

In his interview with the participants, Dr Jeremy Milsom, UNODC Representative in Pakistan, said: “According to the UNODC Global Report on Trafficking in Persons 2020, criminals who traffic children target victims from extremely poor households, dysfunctional families or those who are abandoned without parental care In low-income countries, children represent half of the victims detected and are mainly victims of trafficking for the purpose of forced labor (46%) In high-income countries, child trafficking crimes can also be for the purpose of sexual exploitation, forced criminality or begging.

Mr. Ashraf Zubair Siddiqui, Additional Managing Director, Immigration FIA, welcomed the dignitaries and said: “The Government of Pakistan is fully aware and fully committed to upholding its international obligations to combat these inhuman and terrible crimes. The FIA, as the lead agency against these crimes, has developed and maintained excellent relations with its international partners in general and UNODC in particular, which is an abundant demonstration of our commitment. FIA is grateful to have received UNODC’s support in building the agency’s capacity on serious organized crime such as human trafficking and migrant smuggling, in policy and legislative reforms, training, equipment, research and development and international cooperation.

He added: “FIA and UNODC have a strong and long history of cooperation in the fight against TIP and SOM. In 2018, with UNODC, two laws on TIP and SOM were passed by Parliament, followed by the approval of implementing rules in early 2021. The National Action Plan against TIP and the SOM (2021-2025) was also drafted with the support of UNODC. , which provides clear direction on the actions we need to take over the next five years.

“The awareness campaign launched today will help protect the most vulnerable from falling prey to human traffickers and migrant smugglers. This campaign will help ensure that information reaches those who need it most and enable civil society, policy makers and government officials to work together to help prevent and respond to these crimes. Canada will continue to work alongside its partners, such as the Government of Pakistan and UNODC, in the fight against trafficking and smuggling operations. These efforts will also support safe migration, and awareness raising is an essential part of this. », Mr. Matthew Ciavaglia, representative of the High Commission of Canada in Pakistan.

The campaign will be implemented nationwide in close partnership with the FIA ​​and other relevant stakeholders. Civil society will be a key partner in this process as UNODC understands that government and civil society must work closely together to combat human trafficking and migrant smuggling. The way to succeed in this fight is through a joint effort to raise awareness of these crimes among a much wider mass of concerned stakeholders. This campaign is important because it combines both prevention and protection strategies, which will support civil society organizations in their efforts to help potential victims of trafficking and vulnerable migrants.

Sardhana Police on Saturday charged Sangeet Som Sena UP leader Sachin Khatik and six others with trying to disturb community peace after he allegedly vandalized a food cart, claiming mutton biryani was being sold.

The group, formed by supporters of former BJP MP Sangeet Som, reportedly previously called for a ban on the sale of meat and non-vegetarian foods in Sardhana during the Navratri festival which started on Saturday.

“We registered a case against Khatik and six other people as they tried to disturb the community peace. The food cart vendor was selling vegetable biryani, which Khatik and his followers claimed was mutton biryani. Even though it was non-vegetarian biryani, vandalizing the cart was a crime aimed at creating unnecessary mischief because the sale of mutton or chicken biryani is not prohibited,” said Laxman Verma, the station official. Sardhana police to the Sunday Express.

Sardhana is a city with a large Muslim population. Prior to the Navratri festival, the meat vendors in the city had decided to suppress the sale of mutton and chicken during the nine days of the festival. Police said Khatik and his supporters drove around the city on Saturday to see if cart vendors had heeded their call for a ban on the sale of mutton and chicken. They reportedly targeted the food cart, which was selling vegetable biryani, and overturned it.

Saajid, the owner of the food cart, claimed that Khatik and his followers also robbed him of money. “I was ordered by the police not to sell mutton or chicken biryani during Navrartri. That’s why I had prepared vegetable biryani. In the afternoon, members of the Sangeet Som Sena rushed to my cart and ransacked it. They also looted the money I had,” Saajid said.

Later, former zila panchayat leader Seema Pradhan arrived at the scene and protested against Sangeet Som Sena. “Although a case has been registered against Sangeet leader Som Sena, we doubt that the police will carry out a serious investigation due to the influence wielded by the former BJP MP,” said Seema Pradhan, whose husband , Atul Pradhan, defeated Sangeet Som in the just-concluded assembly elections in the state.

Understand and present the size of the market you are targeting is critical to securing funding for your business. Angel investors and VCs want to see a breakthrough product or service that scales and can gain a significant share of a significant market.

At any stage of investing, whether seed or Series B, it is necessary to include a slide in your presentation that explains your market size from three perspectives: TAM, SAM and SOM.

When you present your market size data to investors, they look for TAM, SAM, and SOM information. These data points hold a mystique of numbers that may seem colossal and out of reach, but if you approach market size methodically, you’ll realize that it really isn’t that complicated.

I recently attended a presentation from a company that produces innovative, nutrient-dense olives and peppers. Because their data point scenario is simple and easy to understand, I’ll use it here to explain their TAM, SAM, and SOM.

Step 1: Capture the TAM

While the TAM (total available market) tends to cause the most anxiety, it is the easiest data point to manage. TAM describes total revenue in a larger industry. You can calculate TAM in three different ways.

The first is the top down approach, often obtained through publicly available market research reports or extrapolated from publicly available data reports.

Then comes the an in-depth approachwhich is based on a calculation of actual and projected prices, as well as current and total projected usage of your products or services.

If you do your homework, you’ll take the guesswork out of financial projections, show potential investors how they can benefit from investing in your business, and put you in the best possible position to achieve your goals.

The last is the value theory approach. This theory applies an informed analysis of the projected value and expected total use of your product or service, then calculates how much of that value can be reflected in its price. The theory of value most often applies to entirely new products, services and categories. Let’s apply the theory to Airbnb.

Airbnb shook up the hospitality industry by dreaming up technology that would allow owners to connect with travelers looking for a place to stay. To apply the theory of value, assess how much a traveler would be willing to pay for this new type of accommodation, how much the owner would like to be paid per night, and what Airbnb might collect from the owner for using their technology.

When a product or service category has already been extensively researched, the MPR is often calculated using publicly available market research reports. If the product or product category is new and hasn’t been thoroughly researched – which often happens in tech and applies to other industry verticals as well – I recommend hire a seasoned market research consultant to secure TAM data using bottom-up or value theory. approach.

Editor’s Note: This article has been updated with additional information to correct a factual error. Wayne State provided an email statement from President Mr. Roy Wilson regarding the leadership change at the School of Medicine.

A previous version of this article said WSU declined to comment.

The South End regrets the mistakes.

The Wayne State School of Medicine replaced former Dean Mark Schweitzer with Dr. Wael Sakr on Tuesday.

President M. Roy Wilson announced the change in an email to the School of Medicine community on Tuesday morning.

“After careful consideration and further investigation, I have decided to announce additional changes to clarify organizational leadership and position us to achieve our ambitious goals,” Wilson said. “Specifically, the dual roles of Dean of the School of Medicine and Vice President for Health Affairs will be split, consistent with the structure of most universities with multiple health science schools.”

Sakr had previously been named executive vice-dean by Schweitzer, according to a Feb. 25 press release.

“Many of these improvements were adopted with valuable input from leading faculty and students,” Schweitzer said. “The strength and talent that these changes bring bring us to the next level of progression that we have developed over the past two years. We are now in a position to further secure our core mission as a medical school and ensure a favorable outcome during our Medical Education Liaison Committee site visit in 2023.”

Wilson said Sakr has extensive experience at WSU and is highly respected in his field.

“Dr. Sakr has served our medical school community for 31 years and is a trusted leader and champion of the School of Medicine,” Wilson said. “He is a nationally recognized academic pathologist with a strong record of funding from the National Institutes of Health and foundational contributions in his field of study.”

Deadline Detroit reported on Feb. 28 that three-quarters of respondents to an internal survey favored Schweitzer’s removal.

An anonymous comment from the inquest said Schweitzer had behaved inappropriately in a professional setting.

“Dean Schweitzer has, on numerous occasions, provided mixed messages when addressing the school as a whole and then in individual meetings,” an anonymous commenter said. “He has at times been rude, profane, dismissive and condescending to esteemed members of the SoM (School of Medicine) community to the point of being embarrassing.”

Schweitzer also received positive feedback from the survey.

“He has shown his ability to sacrifice himself financially for the good of the institution,” said an anonymous commentator. “This model of good stewardship set a very positive tone.”

Schweitzer is now vice president of health affairs at SOM, according to his website. He had been Dean since April 27, 2020 following his appointment.

“Dr. Schweitzer has accomplished a great deal in his tenure as Dean, and we appreciate his many contributions,” Wilson said. “As Vice President of Health Affairs, Dr. Schweitzer will focus on clinical affiliations in the health sciences and on the vision of a fully integrated approach to health care delivery, education and research that will make Wayne State a national leader.”

Schweitzer recently applied to become president of the University of South Florida, according to Deadline Detroit.

They thrive everywhere, from bustling cities to remote rainforests, even in our own backyards. Ubiquitous and shameless mooches, parasites depend on other organisms for their survival.

The impact of parasites on their host varies greatly, ranging from minor irritation to death. Even among host populations that are closely related, the response to parasite infection can differ significantly. Often populations are classified as “resistant” or “susceptible” to a parasite. However, this simplified framework does not tell the whole story.

In a recent study published in Evolution Letters, a team of researchers led by Amanda Hund, a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Minnesota’s College of Biological Sciences, details how parasite resistance occurs in hosts.

To understand how related hosts respond differently to parasitic infection, researchers closely monitored threespine sticklebacks that live in isolated lakes on Canada’s west coast.

“Mature tapeworms can make it difficult for fish to swim or reproduce. It can even manipulate the behavior of the fish to increase the chances of it being eaten by a bird, where the tapeworm is breeding,” says Hund.

The interaction between a host and a parasite can be broken down into several different steps. Understanding where populations differ in these stages shows scientists where evolution is occurring and often determines whether the population is resistant or susceptible to the parasite. Researchers have found that the ability to detect a parasite and quickly trigger an immune response is the most important factor in determining whether the host can resist the parasite or limit its growth. “Applying this approach to more hosts and parasites will allow us to better understand why parasite resistance varies and how it evolves,” Hund says.

The findings could have other implications for human conditions that generate scar tissue similar to the mesh of tissue that resistant fish use to trap the parasite. Hund collaborator Daniel Bolnick, a professor at the University of Connecticut, is continuing to work on this system to better understand its link to human diseases such as cystic fibrosis and liver fibrosis.

“We found naturally evolutionary genetic variation in how quickly fish initiate and recover from a self-destructive immune response. This same harmful immune response exists in humans, so findings in fish have the potential to teach us how our own bodies might recover from damaging conditions more quickly,” Bolnick says.

Funding and support for this work was provided by a James S. McDonnell Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship (to AKH), ​​an American Association of Immunologists Intersect Postdoctoral Fellowship (to LEF), the University of Connecticut (starting at DIB) and National Institutes of Health NIAID grant 1R01AI123659-01A1 (at DIB).

Guest artists join ECU SoM for its annual In Guest Artist residency | East Carolina https://som2015.org/guest-artists-join-ecu-som-for-its-annual-in-guest-artist-residency-east-carolina/ Wed, 02 Mar 2022 01:28:00 +0000 https://som2015.org/guest-artists-join-ecu-som-for-its-annual-in-guest-artist-residency-east-carolina/ East Carolina University’s School of Music (SoM) will host three guest artists for the In Guest Artist Residency event on March 2-3, which will include an open recital at 7:30 p.m. on March 2 and masterclasses for students from noon to 6 p.m. 3rd of March.

East Carolina University’s School of Music (SoM) will host three guest artists for the In Guest Artist Residency event on March 2-3, which will include an open recital at 7:30 p.m. on March 2 and masterclasses for students from noon to 6 p.m. 3rd of March.

Christine Gustafson, a flute teacher and chamber music coach, said the SoM had been trying since the start of COVID-19 to bring Aleksandr Haskin, an international flautist, to join ECU as a guest this year. Haskin will also be joined by pianist Jaun Pablo Andrade and flautist Ethan Lin-Schwartz.

“We would normally have an extra guest or two, but during COVID-19 we really can’t do that,” Gustafson said. “It’s still not safe and we want to be really, really careful to keep things as safe as possible, especially with an artist coming internationally.”

Select SoM students will have the opportunity to perform in the recital alongside guest artists on March 2, Gustafson said. She said Haskin and Andrade will also host masterclasses that SoM flute and piano students can attend.

The students who were chosen to perform in the recital with the guest artists were chosen because of their skill and knowledge of the instrument, Gustafson said. She said she frequently spoke with guests about what they would be performing in the program and what her students would be performing in the masterclasses.

“Sometimes we were able to involve the orchestra, this time because of COVID-19 it’s a quieter, smaller event, but it’s still very exciting for us,” Gustafson said. “We’ve been trying to get these people here, Dr Haskin and Dr Andrande, for two years and we lost him because nobody could travel.”

Dale Cox, a sophomore in music education and a flute specialist, said he would perform in one of Haskin’s masterclasses. He said he had only been playing the flute for three years and was honored to work with such a renowned artist.

During the masterclass, the guest artist gives students feedback on the pieces they worked on, Cox said. He said that instead of their regular instructor giving them feedback and instructions, the guest artist’s job is to focus on what the students are doing right and wrong with a fresh ear.

“I am very grateful to finally be able to work with another male flautist because all the flute teachers I have had for the past three years have always been women, so it will be interesting and pleasant to finally be able to work with someone the same stature as me,” Cox said.

To prepare for the masterclass, Cox said he did a lot of practice and research on the piece he chose to prepare. He said that by researching the chosen piece of music and the artist who wrote it, it helps both the student and the guest artist to learn correctly how to perform the piece the way it was meant to be interpreted.

The students selected to participate in the masterclasses were chosen by Gustafson, who tried to be as gender and age inclusive as possible at SoM Flute Studios, Cox said. It is advantageous for students to learn from a different artist than their teacher, as it allows for new help and guidance than before.

“We’re hearing some really great music coming from one of the best flautists in our world, and he’s incredibly talented, so I’m very grateful,” Cox said.

Kasey Oregon, a SoM junior and music ambassador, said she will perform Francis Poulenc’s “Sonata for Piano and Flute” in the masterclass.

Oregon said the masterclass includes performing the piece in front of guest artists, where they will coach them in a public setting to get constructive criticism. She said the experience would give her insight into how to perform better in front of her peers. This is to ensure that there are always improvements.

“I chose this piece because it was one of the pieces I played for my junior recital,” Oregon said. “It was familiar to me, so it was easy for me to piece it together and prepare for this event.”

Oregon said that in preparation for the event, they would need to know several facts about the composer, such as his nationality and what he did for a living, and what the piece is about, such as when it was written and when it was created. For her performance, she will work alongside a pianist.

As for the SoM’s future plans, Oregon said they usually create a new music initiative project where students get together and discuss promising composers to commission pieces from new musicians. Recently they got an African American composer named Kevin Day.

Oregon said Day was composing a track for them. Each year they usually bring in a new composer and look to the school to compose, she said. Each studio has a guest artist, so there will be one for collaborative piano students.

“It’s an honor to meet someone who is such a promising flautist. It’s even an honor to see him play because of his fame, his promising outlook that he’s establishing,” Oregon said.

Some agents say they have as many as one in 10 sellers who take their properties off the market and seek to sell either privately or through another agent and then try to avoid a fee to the company of mandated origin.


Amber Golding, national accounts manager at MIL Outsource – which operates a monitoring, investigation and litigation service to recoup lost fees for agents – says her company’s research suggests some agents are suffering in a case out of 10.


The agent problem is compounded, she says, because many transactions then occur without the first agency realizing it, unless they have a routine and staff time to check the records of the agent. UK Land Registry.



MIL Outsource, which is regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, says the agency industry loses around £4bn a year in lost fees due to seller avoidance.


Golding makes the revelation in a video interview for Estate Agent Today with Angels Media’s Lee Dahill; she says the problem has gotten worse over the past two years because agents have become so bound by deals that have gone to completion that they have overlooked aborted deals that could then be closed. through a private sale or a rival agency.
