Hearts and minds He said security was just one area in which Germany would have to up its game, particularly given Trump’s plans to slash the number of US troops stationed in Germany by 9,500 to 25,000.Trump cited anger with Germany for not sticking to NATO targets on defense spending and for treating the US “badly” on trade in justifying the move.”I don’t think a Biden administration would completely reverse the plans, but I also doubt it would pursue them with the same vehemence,” Beyer said.In either case, however, Germany must stick to its pledges to increase defense spending while working with European partners to play a bigger role on security.”We don’t want to make NATO obsolete,” Beyer said. “But for our own sake we have got to push defense cooperation within Europe.”He said a younger generation of Germans was less interested in American pop culture or study abroad programs than he had been growing up in Cold War-era West Germany, noting that Australia, Canada and parts of Asia were now more likely to capture hearts and minds.And he admitted that Germany had occasionally neglected US ties over the past decade and bore part of the blame for any estrangement.”Polls show Germany and Germans are very popular among many Americans,” Beyer said, with an eye to rekindling the relationship. “It’s a place to start.” ‘Won’t be better’ On China and Iran, Americans and Europeans had “similar, sometimes identical interests,” Beyer said.”That’s why I’m frustrated that we can’t find a common denominator right now” on issues including support for the World Health Organization amid the coronavirus pandemic, ways to rein in Iran’s nuclear ambitions and tackling climate change.But he insisted that despite the high stakes of the race, Trump’s re-election would not bring the implosion of the West, citing enduring close cooperation with members of Congress and many US states.”It won’t all be grim if Trump two comes. But it also won’t be better,” he said.”Who is sitting in the White House is essential. But it can’t dominate the transatlantic friendship. Washington and especially the United States aren’t just the Oval Office.”Beyer said decades of post-war cooperation between the allies had built a foundation of “supposedly old-fashioned values” like “freedom and democracy, peace and prosperity”.”It’s worth remembering Americans taught us those values and we’re still thankful for them,” he said.That stood in contrast to a Chinese system marked by “dictatorship, a lack of press freedom and human rights, digital surveillance, [abuse of] the Uighurs, Hong Kong, the environment…”Beyer is one of the few top members of the Christian Democrats (CDU), Merkel’s party, at a foreign ministry run by the Social Democrats, junior partners in her ruling coalition.He said the CDU would have to think of those crucial factors when picking a new leader in December ahead of a general election next year at the end of Merkel’s 16-year tenure.”Whoever wins will have to confront these issues.” “The new Cold War between the United States and China has already begun and will shape this century.”After four years of frequent friction between Donald Trump and Angela Merkel on issues including Iran, trade, NATO and the climate, Beyer said it was no secret that Germany would find it easier to work with Joe Biden.”I’m the last person who’s so naive to say ‘If Biden wins, everything will be super, it’s the beginning of a golden age’,” he said. “The controversial issues won’t go away overnight but with Biden the transatlantic friendship would become more reasonable, calculable and reliable again.” Europe and the United States need to face up to a “new Cold War with China” together, regardless of who wins the White House in November, Germany’s point man on transatlantic ties told AFP.With just five weeks to go until the US election, the German government’s coordinator for relations with the United States and Canada, Peter Beyer, insisted there were more shared interests than differences.”Europe has got to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with the US to face the huge challenge of China,” he said.

HealthLifestyle Grenada university hosts international cardiovascular seminar by: – July 7, 2011 Tweet Share 36 Views no discussions Share Share Sharing is caring! St. Geroge’s University in Grenada. Photo credit: meppublishers.comST GEORGE’S, Grenada — St George’s University in Grenada welcomed 31 of the world’s leading cardiovascular and epidemiology specialists to the 43rd international seminar on cardiovascular disease epidemiology and prevention.The ten-day teaching seminar runs for the period June 26 – July 8 and participants, who include two members of faculty at St George’s University, Drs Johansen Sylvester and Dolland Noel, represent 24 different countries.In addressing the physicians during the opening session, Dr Calum Macpherson, Director of WINDREF (Windward Islands Research Facility), stated, “We are delighted to have the faculty and participants here at St George’s University. We regard ourselves as an international institution and this seminar links very closely to our philosophy as a university.”Facilitators include experts in the field of hypertension, aging and cardiovascular diseases, stroke epidemiology and disease prevention and control. Among the diverse group of participants are also bio-statisticians, nurses, behavioral scientists and nutritionists.According to Professor Darwin Labarthe, one of the coordinators, the seminar is designed to introduce and educate young professionals without substantial experience in research or teaching in the science of preventions, on various methods of prevention as it relates to heart diseases, stroke, hypertension, high cholesterol and diabetes.He said the primary objective of the seminar is “to introduce young professionals to the current knowledge and methods of research in heart disease and stroke. The goal is for them, after this experience, to be able to work more effectively in their home-based organizations, agencies and institutions.”Labarthe further explained that, over the past twenty years, emphasis has been placed on developing countries, having recognized the burden placed on these economies by an increase in cardiovascular and other chronic diseases. It is because of this that the seminar has been strategically located.He said, “This has been a very successful approach and has greatly increased representation from developing countries.”The annual seminar retains a general format from year to year, and includes both lectures and group activities about the latest science in cardiovascular diseases and epidemiology, as well as an introduction to the methods of research within the field.The international ten-day teaching seminar on cardiovascular disease epidemiology and prevention began in 1968 by what is now known as the World Heart Federation, out of a recognized need for training throughout the world and physicians and other persons interested in research, teaching and practice in the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.Since 1968 the seminar has been held in twenty-four different countries, with Grenada being the first English-speaking Caribbean country to play host.Caribbean News Now

Published on April 2, 2016 at 9:57 pm Contact Jesse: firstname.lastname@example.org | @dougherty_jesse HOUSTON — Syracuse (23-14, 9-9 Atlantic Coast) fell, 83-66, to North Carolina (33-6, 14-4) at NRG Stadium on Saturday night. That ended the Orange’s season one game shy of the national championship game, and the Tar Heels will now face Villanova for the title on Monday. Here are three quick thoughts on SU’s last game of an incredible Tournament run.1. Saving your bulletsNorth Carolina missed its first 12 3-point attempts, and Syracuse was scratching back into the game. That’s when Marcus Paige gathered himself on the left wing as the clock ticked toward the nine-minute mark of the second half, and drained his team’s first 3 to give it a 10-point lead.Two possessions later, after Trevor Cooney’s 3-pointer jumper hit all sides of the rim before dropping in, Theo Pinson rose up from that same left wing and rattled in a 3 that bumped UNC’s lead to 12. It was a late start for the Tar Heels’ perimeter threats, but those two shots went a long way in holding SU down.At the 5:29 mark, with the Orange press fully on and the lead cut back to 10, Paige was wide open on the left wing and knocked down another. Three minutes later, he stood in the same spot and stroked a 3 that pushed his team’s lead to 77-64 and permanently put Syracuse out of reach.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textThere were moments that it seemed that Syracuse was on its way to another dramatic late-game comeback. Paige and Pinson teamed to deflate those fleeting possibilities. UNC’s 0-for-10 mark from 3 was the reason SU trailed 39-28 at halftime, but the deep ball played a big complimentary role down the stretch as the Tar Heels continually pounded the ball inside with success.2. Too little, too lateAlong with the late Syracuse press, Trevor Cooney made a late offensive push to try and stabilize the Orange’s slim chances at a comeback. But star point guard Michael Gbinije never did enough to fully put Syracuse in a favorable position.SU’s perimeter scoring threats — Cooney, Gbinije and freshman Malachi Richardson — shot 7-for-26 from the field in the first half. Cooney and Richardson picked it up in the second, but Gbinije never followed suit. He finished with 12 points shooting 5-for-18 from the field and 0-of-5 from 3. Cooney ended up with a team-high 22 and Richardson with 17, but they needed the third part of the crew to stick with the high-octane Tar Heels.3. Pounding the paintSyracuse had opportunities to pack the paint against North Carolina, but was never truly successful in doing so. The Tar Heels never shot well from 3 in the game, but got a combined 31 points from front-court scorers Brice Johnson and Kennedy Meeks to keep the Orange at arm’s length.When SU mounted improbable comebacks in the last few rounds of the Tournament, its defense spurred them. But the 2-3 zone or full-court press were never quite strong enough to stave off the Tar Heels hulking front line and talented guards. In the end, that’s what ultimately did the Orange in one game shy of the national championship game. Comments Facebook Twitter Google+
