Saint Mary’s College hosts Peace Project Contest

Posted on by

first_imgSaint Mary’s College hosted the Peace Project Contest as the final installment in a series of events held this week in honor of Martin Luther King, Jr. Students submitted poems, artwork and speeches dedicated to the messages left by the Civil Rights leader. Tamara Taylor, assistant director of Student Involvement and Multicultural Services, said the project was a way for students to use their creativity to celebrate the life of Dr. King and his dream for peace. “Traditionally, ‘Celebrate Martin Luther King’ has only been one day and it has traditionally been the day we get back,” she said. “It has gotten lost in the shuffle, so we decided, ‘Why not do a week?’” Jacquitta Martin, president of the Sisters of Nefertiti, said the sisters helped plan and execute the event. “This contest started out as an oratorical contest. Then sisters asked why limit to just speech when we can open it up to allow students to be more creative,” she said. The 10 entries in the contest ranged from original poetry to a short film. Junior Elizabeth Elsbach won the top prize, a spa package from J. Ross Salon and Spa, for her poem. “I decided to write a poem because when you are expressing something as intangible as peace, you have to use something intangible like poetry to reach out and stir up the desire to reach a common goal,” she said. First year Asha Gilmore took second prize with her original film. The film originally began as a project for a social work class, she said. “It was a project where we compared and contrasted three different writers: Sister Madaleva, Mary Jane Adams and Martin Luther King, Jr.,” she said. “I decided I wanted to use song and intensity in the animations to make the project more memorable.” Junior Lizzy Schroff finished in third place for her poem. “I write a lot of poetry, and I like poetry because I like to express things through a new perspective and grab people’s attention with vivid imagery, and [allow them] to see things in a new light,” she said. Vice President of Student Affairs Karen Johnson served on a panel of judges and helped choose the winner of the contest. “I was amazed by how excellent everything was, and it should be shared with the community,” she said. Elaine Meyer-Lee, the director of the Center for Women’s Intercultural Leadership, also served as a judge. “I think it is really great that so many students came out and created something with so much substance,” she said. “It was a meaningful event that is worthy of the legacy of Martin Luther King, Jr.”last_img read more

Between March 1st and July 3rd, as part of the New Horizons 2017 exercise, the Office of Security Cooperation at the U.S. Embassy in Santo Domingo and the Dominican Ministry of Defense (MIDE, per its Spanish acronym) are providing health care services and building three clinics and a vocational school in the provinces of San Juan de la Managua and Azua. The assistance is being provided through Task Force Grand Slam with the motto, “Working Together for a Better Future.” A contingent comprising roughly 200 troops from Air Forces Southern (AFSOUTH), the Air Force component of U.S. Southern Command (SOUTHCOM), health care professionals, and engineers have joined forces with the counterparts in the Dominican Armed Forces to provide free medical outreach in the two Dominican provinces. New Horizons is an annual, joint exercise launched in the mid-1980s to provide humanitarian aid in Central and South America, and the Caribbean. Its main goal is to promote bilateral cooperation, interoperability, and joint-response capacities during natural disasters. Sponsored by SOUTHCOM and executed by AFSOUTH, the civilian-military humanitarian aid exercise is backed by the ministries of Health, Education, and Sports, as well as by civilian authorities in the jurisdictions that benefit from the assistance. During the medical outreach days, 15,000 residents of Azua and San Juan receive medical treatment free of charge from specialists in the fields of dentistry, general medicine, optometry, pediatrics, dermatology, and elective and ambulatory surgery. Surgeries are performed at the Military Hospital of the Dominican Armed Forces on those suffering from gynecological, ophthalmological, urological, and ENT issues. U.S. troops, in collaboration with the MIDE Office of Engineering, are building two health care centers in the towns of North and South Corbano in San Juan, and a third in Hato Nuevo Cortez in Azua. They are also erecting a vocational school in the community of Arroyo Cano, which will help children develop their potential. “These health care centers will have a great impact on these remote communities. Even so, they must become part of the government’s health care strategy so they can have permanent doctors and not run the risk of being abandoned,” Daniel Pou, a Dominican security and defense analyst, told Diálogo. With the goal of ensuring the success of the humanitarian aid project, Dominican Army, Air Force, and Navy personnel are providing security in the housing centers and in places where the infrastructure work is being performed. Development and solidarity “This humanitarian aid program is part of the cooperation between the two countries in which we are promoting human development and solidarity for those in need,” Lieutenant General Rubén D. Paulino Sem, the Dominican defense minister, said during the New Horizons 2017 opening ceremony, according to a MIDE report. These programs have been conducted in five of the Dominican Republic’s 32 provinces on six occasions since 2006. “Approximately 105,000 residents have benefited from the health care services during the six joint humanitarian exercises,” Colonel Rafael David Abreu, deputy director of operations for the Office of Plans and Operations of the MIDE Joint Staff, reported to Diálogo. “New Horizons offers U.S. and Dominican troops the opportunity to train in health care, logistics, and civil engineering while improving the quality of life for the population,” he stressed. But it also serves as a forum for forging relationships between military members and government officials from the two countries. Humanitarian aid plan MIDE indicated that the civilian-military exercises allow the participating units to improve their response capacity. Thus, they can more quickly and efficiently deal with the effects of natural disasters on vulnerable populations, and promote regional security and stability. “Cooperating on humanitarian aid helps with the important task of involving our military corps in finding solutions or mitigating the needs of the Dominican people, and this inspires trust and acceptance in the community,” Col. Abreu stressed. “Any social program should have an ongoing presence in order to have a greater social impact, mainly in the country’s remote regions,” Pou added. In addition to the invaluable civilian-military aid operation, SOUTHCOM and the Dominican authorities are discussing coordination for the next joint combined mission – Continuing Promise 2018. This is another effort by SOUTHCOM to bring health care services, humanitarian aid, and civic support to vulnerable communities in Latin America and the Caribbean. “Despite the big cultural differences, our ties of mutual trust and support are strengthened when we conduct joint work. This helps build a great deal of professionalism and understanding between members of the two countries’ armed forces,” Col. Abreu concluded.

UNWTO: Three possible scenarios for international tourism in 2020

Posted on by

first_imgInternational tourist arrivals 2019 – 2020 (% change) Source: UNWTO While most see signs of recovery to be visible in the last quarter of this year, a full recovery could come in early 2021. Domestic demand is expected to recover sooner than international, and according to previous crises there will be more trips to visit friends and relatives than business travel. scenario (58% drop) is based on the gradual opening of international borders and the easing of travel restrictions in early Julythe scenario (70% drop) is based on the gradual opening of international borders and the easing of travel restrictions in early SeptemberThe scenario (78% drop) is based on the gradual opening of international borders and the easing of travel restrictions only in early December. Expectations of the beginning of recovery by continents Source: UNWTO International Tourism Scenarios 2020 The World Tourism Organization has announced three possible scenarios concerning international tourism in 2020. Each of them depends on the speed of restraint, the duration of travel restrictions and the closure of borders. The biggest negative impact, as expected, was experienced by Asia and the Pacific with 33 million arrivals less, and in Europe, although the percentage is lower, the impact is also quite large, 22 million arrivals less.center_img If we once again convert the percentages into figures, it will, according to UNWTO scenarios, mean a loss of 850 million to 1,1 billion international tourists, a financial loss that could range between 910 billion and 1,2 trillion US dollars, and the danger is between 100 and 120 million jobs in tourism. It is obvious that this is the biggest crisis that international tourism has faced, and the statistical data that have been monitored since 1950 support this. Experts expect a recovery in 2021 It should be added that in March, when the borders began to close, there was a global decline in arrivals of as much as 57%. In numbers, that means a loss of 67 million international arrivals and about $ 80 billion in receipts. Estimates of the recovery in international travel are currently more positive in Africa and the Middle East, while opinions are divided in Europe and Asia, with half of the experts expecting a recovery as early as this year. According to the latest data from the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), the COVID-19 pandemic during the first quarter caused a drop in international arrivals of 22%, and the crisis could lead to an annual decline of between 60 and 80% compared to 2019 data. last_img read more
