La Administración Wolf destaca los esfuerzos integrales en materia de seguridad alimentaria

first_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitter Español,  Press Release,  Public Health A medida que Pennsylvania trabaja para mitigar la propagación del nuevo coronavirus de 2019, la Administración Wolf ha priorizado el abordaje de la inseguridad alimentaria en el estado al proteger nuestra cadena de suministro local, promover las exenciones y los recursos necesarios y garantizar el acceso igualitario a los alimentos saludables.“A medida que buscamos garantizar la salud y la seguridad de los residentes de Pennsylvania y trabajar juntos para salvar vidas mientras mitigamos la COVID-19, los alimentos nunca han ocupado un lugar más importante”, dijo el Gobernador Tom Wolf. “Dependemos de los agricultores para que continúen trabajando la tierra, de los procesadores de alimentos para fabricar productos, de los trabajadores de supermercados para que estén en las cajas y de los voluntarios para apoyar nuestros bancos y despensas de alimentos”.Pennsylvania es el hogar de una industria agrícola y alimentaria fuerte y diversa, conocido por su reputación por la innovación y la generosidad, que crea una base sólida para la seguridad alimentaria en el estado. Garantizar que los residentes de Pennsylvania tengan el acceso igualitario a los alimentos es una pieza crucial de un rompecabezas grande y complejo.“Estos tiempos de incertidumbre han resaltado la complejidad de la cadena de suministro de alimentos de nuestra nación y demandan una nueva manera de pensar. Hemos estado analizando activamente situaciones sin precedentes a medida que se presentan. Trabajamos las 24 horas del día entre todos los organismos para guiar a la industria y garantizar que los alimentos sigan estando disponibles y accesibles. El hambre no se apoderará de este estado”, dijo el Secretario del Departamento de Agricultura, Russell Redding. “Me conmueve la increíble innovación, colaboración y tenacidad que hemos visto a medida que trabajamos con los sectores privado, público y sin fines de lucro para evitar la inseguridad alimentaria en Pennsylvania”.Antes de la COVID-19, más de 1.5 millones de residentes de Pennsylvania padecían hambre crónica de manera regular. Entre ellos, casi medio millón de niños. En las últimas semanas, cientos de miles más han pasado a depender del sistema de alimentos de caridad a medida que las empresas cerraban sus puertas y las clases se mudaban al hogar para aprender de manera virtual y así mitigar la propagación del nuevo coronavirus mortal. Asimismo, hay un grupo completamente nuevo de residentes de Pennsylvania que se encuentra con la necesidad de utilizar los recursos alimentarios de emergencia.Desde el primer momento en que comenzaron los esfuerzos de mitigación de la COVID-19 en Pennsylvania, la agricultura y toda la cadena de suministro de alimentos se consideraron de soporte vital. Para apoyar a la industria y proteger a la fuerza laboral, la Administración Wolf ha recomendado que las operaciones de producción y procesamiento de alimentos permanezcan abiertas y cumplan con una serie de guías integrales para minimizar el riesgo, mantener una fuerza laboral saludable y garantizar la seguridad de los alimentos.Además de guiar a la industria agrícola, la administración ha trabajado diligentemente con el sistema de alimentos de caridad de Pennsylvania para brindar orientación para limitar el riesgo relacionado con la COVID-19, adquirir exenciones de las agencias federales para garantizar que aquellos que necesitan alimentos puedan recibirlos y proveer recursos desde todos los ángulos para apoyar la implementación.Los residentes de Pennsylvania reciben apoyo y asistencia de muchas maneras fuera de la red de Pennsylvania de casi 3,000 despensas de alimentos, comedores de beneficencia, refugios y otros programas de alimentación que sirven a más de dos millones de personas cada año. Los Departamentos de Envejecimiento, Agricultura, Educación y Servicios Humanos, junto con la Agencia de Manejo de Emergencias de Pennsylvania, han trabajado para ampliar la disponibilidad del programa, adquirir las exenciones necesarias y aumentar los recursos durante los esfuerzos de mitigación de la COVID-19 en Pennsylvania.Asimismo, la Administración Wolf se compromete a garantizar que los residentes de Pennsylvania sepan que los recursos están disponibles para ellos mediante la creación y la actualización de la guía de Respuesta a la COVID-19 (Responding to COVID-19 Guide) que brinda una lista completa de la información y los apoyos disponibles, igual que la encuesta Acceso a alimentos (Access to Food) para identificar las áreas de mayor necesidad.Por otra parte, la Administración Wolf ha colaborado con socios públicos y privados con el fin de garantizar que se puedan asignar suministros y donaciones para satisfacer las necesidades de alimentación en todo Pennsylvania.Los esfuerzos de los voluntarios para distribuir comidas y otros servicios de soporte vital en Pennsylvania se consideran actividades esenciales, incluso con la orden estatal vigente de quedarse en casa. El sistema de alimentos de caridad cuenta con el apoyo de una base de decenas de miles de voluntarios que generosamente dan su tiempo para garantizar que nadie en Pennsylvania tenga que preguntarse dónde conseguirá su próxima comida. Debido al aumento de la necesidad, así como de las preocupaciones en materia de salud entre muchos miembros del voluntariado tradicional, se necesitan más voluntarios para ayudar a fortalecer el sistema.La Primera Dama Frances Wolf hizo un llamamiento a los residentes saludables de Pennsylvania para que consideren ser voluntarios para ayudar a quienes lo necesitan, recordándoles que deben cumplir con todas las precauciones de seguridad mientras lo hacen.“Pennsylvania está bien situada para satisfacer la mayor demanda de asistencia alimentaria y apoyo en todo el estado, y continuará utilizando la información disponible y colaborará con los socios públicos y privados para garantizar que ningún residente de Pennsylvania pase hambre durante la pandemia de COVID-19”, dijo Wolf. “Esta crisis de salud pública ha resaltado la importancia de la industria agrícola y alimentaria de Pennsylvania y que brindar un suministro constante y accesible de alimentos inocuos es esencial para la recuperación.Infórmese más sobre Seguridad alimentaria en Pennsylvania:Acerca de la inseguridad alimentariaAcerca del suministro de alimentosRecursos para residentes de PennsylvaniaMedidas tomadas durante la pandemia de COVID-19Para obtener una lista completa de los documentos de guía e información relacionados con la agricultura y los alimentos durante la mitigación de la COVID-19 en Pennsylvania, visite agriculture.pa.gov/COVID o siga al Departamento de Agricultura en Twitter y Facebook.

Bryson DeChambeau says camera operator jeopardized his ‘brand’

first_imgA shot off the pace at the start of Day 3, Wolff posted six birdies and two bogeys on the front nine to make the turn in 32. Two tied at 17-under. @matthew_wolff5 just eagled the par-5 14th. #QuickHits pic.twitter.com/Awa6CW01Hh— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) July 4, 2020After another bogey at the 10th, Wolff caught fire with two birdies and an eagle before another gain at the 17th moved him to 19 under overall, ahead of Ryan Armour (67) and Bryson DeChambeau (67). Troy Merritt (67), Mark Hubbard (69), Seamus Power and Chris Kirk (70) are five strokes behind Wolff heading into the final round. Mesmerizing.The swing of 54-hole @RocketClassic leader, @matthew_wolff5 . pic.twitter.com/nrnQab1N9g— PGA TOUR (@PGATOUR) July 4, 2020Kirk shared a one-shot lead with 2012 U.S. Open champion Webb Simpson following Friday’s second round, but the former saw his advantage evaporate. Simpson is one stroke further back in a tie for eighth after signing for a 1-under-par 71 — his first round in the 70s this week. DeChambeau’s round included him confronting a camera operator after making bogey on No. 7. DeChambeau said the operator kept the camera on him for too long while DeChambeau reacted angrily to a poor bunker shot on that hole. Bryson running a little hot. Caught up with him on 7 where he took a Sergio slash at the sand after splashing out of a greenside bunker, muttered an expletive after missing the par save and spent 60 seconds in a…testy discussion with a cameraman on his way to 8 tee. pic.twitter.com/ENjQt1U689— Will Gray (@WillGrayGC) July 4, 2020The American said after his round that players should not be shown in a negative light and thus have their “brand” jeopardized.From Golf Channel :”As much as we’re out here performing, I think it’s necessary that we have our times of privacy as well when things aren’t going our way. I mean, we’re in the spotlight, but if somebody else is in the spotlight they wouldn’t want that either,” DeChambeau said. “I feel like when you’re videoing someone and you catch Tiger (Woods) at a bad time, you show him accidentally doing something, or someone else, they’re just frustrated because they really care about the game. It could really hurt them if they catch you at a potentially vulnerable time.”We don’t mean anything by it, we just care a lot about the game. For that to damage our brand like that, that’s not cool in the way we act because if you actually meet me in person, I’m not too bad of a dude, I don’t think.”Sporting News’ Tom Gatto contributed to this report. Matthew Wolff carded a second successive 8-under-par 64 to move to the top of the leaderboard after the third round at the Rocket Mortgage Classic. Wolff surged to a three-stroke lead through 54 holes thanks to another low round at Detroit Golf Club in Michigan on Saturday. The 21-year-old is eyeing his second PGA Tour title after winning last year’s 3M Open. last_img read more

Remembering Munich … History-making Jamaican Olympic diver looks back at German memories

first_imgIn 1966, a Gleaner article declared: “Jamaicans are naturally athletic and agile people, and we could produce divers of world class if more attention was paid to this aspect of swimming.” This bold proclamation was made just after 10 year-old Betsy Sullivan had represented Jamaica in 3m diving competition at the 1966 Commonwealth Games held in Kingston. ” … at that age you kind of know no fear. Whatever is there to do you just do it. Life is just for living at that age, you’re enjoying yourself and having a great time, totally oblivious to the fact I had qualified to a games at age 10 and the magnitude of what that meant. I was just an average 10 year-old playing with my friends, having a good time,” she remembered. “I wasn’t there to win, I didn’t have any expectations at that age, it was just a good experience and I really enjoyed it.” Six years down the road, the then – teenager, Sullivan – now Betsy Sharpe, became the first Jamaican to qualify for the Olympics in the diving event. MUNICH 1972 It will become the scene of both her most fulfilling and horrific experiences, but for the Olympian, it was the moment that defined her for the rest of her life. “That one was the pinnacle, because once you are an Olympian, you will always be an Olympian. That is something no one can ever take away from you. I was proud to represent my country,” said Sharpe during a recent chat with The Gleaner. A great accomplishment for a bright-eyed 16 year-old; still, the Munich Olympics, which were ironically marketed as ‘The Happy Games’, will be mostly remembered for the killing of 11 Israeli athletes and coaches by a group of Palestinian terrorists who had taken them hostage. Sharpe reminisced on the scenes in the Athletes Village and how that incident not only changed the mood of the Games, but also her own perspective. “I remember probably more than I want to remember from it. We could see the terrorist standing outside on the balcony with his gun because of the way the village was set out,” she shared. “The mood of the Games changed. The last time it was held in Germany, it was held in Berlin, and the whole thing with Jesse Owens and (Adolf) Hitler, and so Germany was going out of their way to try and make this a comfortable, friendly games, and that’s how we felt about it.” The extra security detail and the jubilant reactions to the false news that the hostages had been freed are all still fresh in her mind. “I was going through the line at breakfast and I had a smile on my face and the lady that was serving me breakfast she said ‘You don’t know do you? Nobody knows.’ “And I said, ‘Know what?’ And she said, ‘They were all killed.” What didn’t die for Sharpe, is the resolve that she developed from that experience. “Its not something that I usually tell people. I don’t believe in tooting my own horn from that point of view. There is something inside of me that no one can take away from me; I know what my accomplishments are, I just feel like I can hold myself up so high from the experience of being an Olympian, and I always have that self confidence and that’s what reaching that level of sports gives you – you know who you are,” she beamed. This summer, she will have company in the chronicles of Jamaican diving history with Yona Knight-Wisdom set to carve his name beside hers as Jamaican diving Olympian after his qualification to the Rio Olympic Games.last_img read more

IBM’s New Image Recognition-Based Search

first_imgWe’ve all seen photos of ourselves in locations we can’t quite remember. Often they’re from exotic travels or from days long past. Regardless of the reason for your memory loss, IBM is working on a tool that can help. In collaboration with the European Union consortium, the company is testing SAPIR (Search in Audio-Visual Content Using Peer-to-peer Information Retrieval). The image matching search technology allows users to pull results from large collections of audio-visual content without using tags for search. Instead, users can upload images and match them to similar ones – perhaps even ones with signage and labels. The system analyzes everything from digital photographs, to sound files to video. From here it automatically indexes and ranks the media for retrieval. A recent IDC white paper reports, “The digital universe is messy…95% of the data in the digital universe is unstructured, meaning its intrinsic meaning cannot be easily divined by simple computer programs. There are ways to imply meaning to unstructured data, and the semantic web project is promising to develop the tools to help us do that in the future.” Two such “divining” projects include CoPhIR (Content-based Photo Image Retrieval) Test-Collection and IBM’s MUFIN (Multi-Feature Indexing Network). These projects tie into SAPIR’s back end by extracting data from the Flickr archive and indexing features such as scalable color, color structure, color layout, shape edges and texture. Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… Tags:#search#Semantic Web#web As shown in the video of Madrid’s Plaza de España, SAPIR identifies matching media in the same way that humans derive intrinsic value from visual and sensory clues. Users can also choose to combine search terms with additional text to further drill down in search results. As is the case with regular search, if you already know the city where your image was taken, you’re one step closer to finding your result. Additionally, SAPIR also has the ability to index sound and video files. While the catalogue of media is still very limited, theoretically we may one day be able to search for almost anything using this technique. If Ashton Kutcher wears a pair of sunglasses we like, we can scan the image and search for the storefronts stocking them. If we’re looking for the name of a town square, we can find it in the tags of similar images. And finally, if we’re looking to self-diagnose we can compare photos of ourselves against jaundice or malaria patients. The advantage of this tool is that we may one day have a chance to collect up the disparate bits in the digital ether and identify them as useful points of information. To test SAPIR in its early research stage, visit the homepage. You may also want to test out MUFIN to compare results.

Vizag Test: R Ashwin, Ravindra Jadeja strike after stubborn resistance by England openers

first_imgAlastair Cook led England’s dogged resistance with a diligent fifty before falling to the final delivery of the day as India stayed on course for victory in the second Test on Sunday.Trapped in front by a Ravindra Jadeja delivery, Cook reviewed but could not get the lbw decision overturned in what was a massive blow to England ahead of an intriguing fifth day’s play on Monday. (SCORECARD)Joe Root was batting on five with the tourists on 87-2, still needing 318 runs for an improbable victory on a track offering significant turn and uneven bounce.Chasing a daunting 405 on a deteriorating wicket, Cook and Haseem Hameed initially defied the Indian bowlers, who could not separate the openers in the afternoon session.Hameed lived up to his ‘Baby Boycott’ moniker, frustrating the home bowlers with his solid defence even if the 19-year-old took a couple of painful blows to his body during his three-hour spell at the crease.In desperation for a breakthrough, India captain Virat Kohli wasted both reviews on Cook in successive overs, trying to get his counterpart leg-before.After India spent 50 overs toiling without success, Ravichandran Ashwin dismissed Hameed leg-before with a delivery which kept low.Cook brought up his 53rd test fifty in 171 balls but his late dismissal for 54 was a disappointing end to a day England had begun well by bowling India out for 204 in their second innings.England paceman Stuart Broad (4-33) was exceptional despite physical discomfort as he and leg-spinner Adil Rashid (4-82) claimed six of the last seven India wickets after the hosts had resumed on 98 for three.advertisementBroad is nursing a foot injury and will be assessed after the test but there was no let up in hostility from the bowler who troubled the Indian batsmen with his probing cutters.Ajinkya Rahane was out on 26 when he surrendered to one such leg-cutter and, surprised by the extra bounce, gloved it to Cook at slip.Broad then got Ashwin caught behind to peg back India before Rashid took over.The 28-year-old dismissed Wriddhiman Saha and then struck a body blow, tempting Virat Kohli into a wild drive only for the edge to fly to slip where an airborne Ben Stokes took a spectacular one-handed catch.Debutant Jayant Yadav made 27 not out as he and Mohammed Shami added 42 for the final wicket in the first ever test match in the port city of Visakhapatnam.last_img read more
