Newstalk had stated in response to the complaint that the discussion in question was “in the context of a wider exploration of the concerns expressed to the presenter by parents and grandparents of teenage girls over a number of weeks on the programme”.Hook had, according to the station, in the weeks prior to broadcast “spoken with the grandmother of a teenage girl who suffered from side-effects which she said were related to the HPV vaccine”. Newstalk argued it had been “careful to ensure the public interest was served” by “also hearing from a number of contributors who are strongly supportive of the vaccine”.It further claimed that Hook “had a right to raise this issue on the programme as a public health issue”.The BAI’s compliance committee decided to reject the complaint by majority vote.The committee noted in its decision “the important role of the presenter in ensuring that audiences have access toa awide variety of views” on a subject.It said that the issue of reported side effects regarding the HPV vaccine is a “legitimate topic to be examined by news and current affairs programmes”.It said that in its opinion the programme had satisfied its own Code of Fairness, Objectivity and Impartiality, but “only in a barely minimal fashion”. It added that the presenter “did not appear to be very familiar with the details of the issue that the programme sought to examine”.However, the style of Hook himself had to be taken into account, it said:The presenter style in this instance is often robust in approach and tone and is characterised strongly by an approach to presentation that emphasises the role of the presenter as ‘devil’s advocate’.The Committee found that “the interviews, as well as critical texts, provided the suitable counter-balance to those of the presenter”.It concluded that the programme did not infringe the Broadcasting Act 2009 or its own code of fairness, and rejected the complaint.Read: Lecturer charged with the criminal damage of US navy aircraft at ShannonRead: ‘Harmful and offensive’: Complaint against Katie Hopkins’ Today FM appearance rejected Share79 Tweet Email1 19,840 Views By Cianan Brennan FactCheck: No, the reported side effects of the HPV vaccine do NOT outweigh the proven benefits Claim George Hook spoke about HPV vaccine in ‘ill-informed and irresponsible’ manner rejected The BAI said that Hook’s approach to discussing the vaccine had satisfied its Code of Fairness, but “only in a barely minimal fashion”. https://jrnl.ie/3359976 Short URL Apr 27th 2017, 6:05 AM George Hook Source: Sam BoalTHE BROADCASTING AUTHORITY of Ireland has rejected a complaint against broadcaster George Hook concerning his treatment of a radio segment dealing with the HPV vaccine.A listener had claimed that Hook had dealt with the subject in an “ill-informed and irresponsible” manner while discussing it with a consultant pediatrician on his show High Noon on Newstalk Radio on 4 October 2016.The complainant claimed that the presenter, in setting out what the listener deemed to be his ‘plainly wrong views’, caused ‘undue anxiety’ among the listening public.The complaint was considered by the BAI in its latest list of published decisions.

Boire du lait ne protègerait pas les os contre les fracturesSelon une nouvelle étude américaine, boire du lait au cours de l’adolescence ne ferait pas baisser le risque de fractures de hanche 20 ans plus tard. Ce serait même plutôt l’inverse, notamment chez les garçons.Le lait est considéré comme une source essentielle de calcium. Un minéral indispensable à la croissance des os. On lui prête donc logiquement la capacité d’aider à protéger les os contre d’éventuelles fractures et l’ostéoporose, caractérisée par une fragilité excessive des os. Aux Etats-Unis notamment, les recommandations nutritionnelles incitent ainsi les plus jeunes à boire chaque jour trois verres de lait pour renforcer la densité osseuse. Pourtant, une nouvelle étude affirme aujourd’hui que ceci serait inefficace, contredisant les idées reçues. Publiée dans la revue JAMA Pediatrics, l’étude suggère que boire du lait ne diminuerait pas le risque de fractures osseuses et ne protègerait pas non plus contre l’ostéoporose. Pour arriver à ces conclusions, les chercheurs de l’université de Harvard à Boston se sont intéressés à la consommation de lait de 96.000 jeunes Américains âgés de 13 à 18 ans, 61.000 étaient des femmes et 35.000 des hommes. Les participants ont été suivis pendant 22 ans, une période durant laquelle les chercheurs se sont penchés sur leur consommation de lait et le nombre de fractures. Durant ces recherches, l’équipe dirigée par Diane Feskanich a en tout recensé 1.226 fractures de hanche chez les femmes et 490 chez les hommes. Plus de 90% des ces fractures ont été causées en trébuchant ou en chutant. Ces données ont été mises en parallèle avec plusieurs facteurs, y compris la consommation de lait. Les chercheurs ont alors constaté qu’une plus grande consommation de lait ne faisait pas diminuer le risque de fractures. Les sujets qui avaient bu moins de lait durant l’adolescence n’ont pas montré plus de fractures que les autres.Du lait qui… favorise les fractures ? Chez les hommes, c’est même le contraire qui est survenu. En effet, d’après les résultats de l’étude, chaque verre de lait supplémentaire bu par jour au cours de l’adolescence chez les garçons aurait fait augmenter le risque de fractures de la hanche de 9%. Mais comment expliquer une telle observation ? Au cours de leurs recherches, l’équipe a observé que la consommation de lait à l’adolescence coïncidait avec une taille plus importante des adultes.Pour expliquer la hausse du risque, ils émettent ainsi l’hypothèse que l’augmentation de la taille des os conduirait à une plus grande fragilité. “Le renforcement de la masse osseuse due à la consommation de lait serait contrebalancée par une fragilité due à une taille plus élevée. Et une taille élevée serait un facteur de risque d’ostéoporose”, a estimé le Dr Diane Feskanich, l’auteur principal de l’étude. À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?En revanche, “nous n’avons pas retrouvé d’augmentation du risque de fractures chez les femmes”, a-t-elle souligné. Une différence qui pourrait s’expliquer par plusieurs facteurs et notamment le fait que les filles ne grandissent pas au même rythme que les garçons.D’autres éléments indispensables aux osReste que ce n’est pas la première fois que les soi-disant bienfaits du lait sur la solidité des os sont remis en cause. Les spécialistes rappellent d’ailleurs que le calcium n’est pas le seul élément indispensable à la croissance des os qui ont également besoin de vitamine D et de phosphore notamment. Toutefois, le Dr Feskanich et ses collègues préfèrent tempérer leur découverte : celle-ci ne doit pas non plus inciter les plus jeunes à tourner le dos au lait et aux produits laitiers.

Brighton & Hove Albion manager Chris Hughton believes that their biggest challenge in 2019 will be trying to avoid complacency.Brighton are sitting comfortably in 13th place in the Premier League table after amassing 25 points from 20 matches so far.But Chris Hughton has stressed the need to maintain their level of play as the second half of the season starts.“The biggest challenge is always complacency – in every game, we played in this division we are faced with tough opposition and that’s a reminder each week that if we don’t reach a level we can get punished,” Hughton told the club’s official website.“That’s always there for us, we’re still in our second season in this division and our aim is to maintain our status in the league and develop and grow as a club.Pep Guardiola: “Aymeric Laporte’s injury doesn’t look good” Andrew Smyth – August 31, 2019 Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola admits Aymeric Laporte’s injury “does not look good” and fears the defender will be out for a long time.“We’ve worked very hard to be where we are now, and we have to be respectful that every single game we play is a difficult one – there’ll be bigger and more experienced teams than us that will find it difficult – there are reminders every week in this league about that.”“My feeling is that we have to continue in the same mentality, the gap between ourselves and the bottom three will always be the most important thing for quite some time to develop as a team.”

<> We’ve all been there. You’re relatively early on in a new Dungeons & Dragons campaign, excited to see what kind of monsters you’ll run across. You trek through the shadowy cave and are confronted by…Goblins. Again. Or maybe you’re a Dungeon Master, and are struggling to figure out what villainous civilization your players will be running up against next and all you can think of are…Orcs. Again.Fortunately for you, the 5th Edition Monster Manual features a ton of different monster races to use instead of those old green-skinned standbys. We’ve collected our favorites below! 1/11FeyFor my money, one of the most habitually underrepresented creature types in D&D is the Fey. No, creatures like Sprites, Pixies and Satyrs aren’t typically evil, but there’s no reason they couldn’t become rather territorial to a group of adventurers stomping through their woods killing spiders and wolves. 1/11GithUnlike most races on this list, the Gith are enemies meant for higher level characters to tackle, but considering your pals don’t tap out at level 5, that should actually be pretty useful. Though they don’t typically hang out in mortal planes too often, it shouldn’t be too hard to come up with a reason for your characters to run up against the evil Githyanki or the more neutral Githzerai. 1/11GnollsGnolls are one of my absolute favorite Dungeons & Dragons races and it’s not just because I like saying the name. They’re basically evil hyena men with demonic magic. And as if that wasn’t bad enough, they’re also massive, growing to a hulking 7 and a half feet tall. Best of all, the Monster Manual has a variety of Gnoll types, from the ½ CR standard-issue, to the 4 CR Gnoll Fang of Yeenoghu. 1/11HumansIt might seem weird to place Humans on a list like this, but Dungeon Masters often overlook the vast amount of options for human NPCs and enemies at the back of the Monster Manual. You could have a Cult Fanatic and her flock of Cultists, a Druid and an army of assorted blights and awakened plants, a Berserker accompanied by Tribal Warriors, or any combination of the above! 1/11KoboldsKobolds are a Dungeons & Dragons standby, but they don’t get anywhere near the love of Goblins and Orcs, likely because they never showed up in a Tolkien book. While they don’t have as many varieties as other creatures, the reptilian Kobolds come in both winged and non-winged fights, both of which boast pack tactics, which can make for some pretty exciting combat situations. 1/11Kuo-ToaLike the Gith, Kuo-Toa are Underdark dwellers that were once enslaved by the mind flayers. What makes these fish-men so fun, however, is that they’re absolutely bugnuts insane, making up their own bonkers gods that, through their power of their subconscious minds, can actually physically manifest themselves in the real world. 1/11LizardfolkLike Kobolds, Lizardfolk are reptilian in nature, but they boast much more well-developed societies, albeit ones that are completely amoral. They’re extremely territorial though, which should give you plenty of excuses for your player characters to run up against an army of Lizardfolks, their Shamans and perhaps, even their King or Queen. 1/11ModronsSo, in all likelihood, early on in you campaigns, players probably won’t be visiting the plane of Mechanus, which is where the Modrons make their home. But if they do, or if you think of a way to get these little robotic cuties onto their plane, they could make for some great, bizarre enemies, as each subtype is restricted to a certain number of activities it’s capable of performing. 1/11SahauginBoth Kuo-Toa and Sahaugin are evil fish-people, but there’s an important difference. While the Kuo-Toa are a nutty, wacky kind of evil, the Sahaugin are a vicious, terrible, invade-shoreline-areas type of evil. Their Monster Manual entry is also fully fleshed out, giving you access to a fighter, a priestess and a ruler, making for a pretty nasty war party. 1/11Thri-kreenThough they’re best known from their considerable presence in the world of Athas, as seen in the Dark Sun campaign setting, Thri-Kreen also warrant a page in the standard 5th Edition Monster Manual. Best of all, the help the insectoids feel even more alien, the entry also includes several Thri-Kreen specific weapons, as well as some psionic abilities. 1/11Yuan-TiAnd finally, we come to the Yuan-Ti, a fancy way of saying something rather simple: Snake People. The coolest thing about the Yuan-Ti is that the Monster Manual offers up lots of different snake-person combos, from the almost all snake Abominations to three different varieties of blended Malisons to the almost completely human looking Purebloods. There you have it: Eleven different ways to mix up the mobs that your players will be facing in Dungeons & Dragons.

Children tend to perceive ovoid, or egg-shaped, characters as overweight even though the creatures are imaginary, and seeing them can influence children to eat more unhealthy food, found the study.“They have a tendency to eat almost twice as much indulgent food as kids who are exposed to perceived healthier looking cartoon characters or no characters at all,” said lead author of the study Margaret Campbell, marketing professor at the University of Colorado Boulder in the US. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The results of the study published in the Journal of Consumer Psychology said that, kids are responsive to the apparent bodyweight of cartoon characters like the aptly named Grimace, a rotund, milkshake-loving creature created by McDonald’s restaurant in the 1970s.The findings, gathered from over 300 participants in three age groups averaging eight, 12 and 13 years, have implications for marketers as well as parents navigating a world where children encounter cartoon characters in a variety of media, from books to graphic novels, TV shows, video games, movies and more. The inclination to eat more junk food was curtailed, however, when kids in the study first had the opportunity to summon their previously learned health knowledge.“Kids do not necessarily draw upon previous knowledge when they are making decisions. But perhaps if we are able to help trigger their health knowledge with a quiz just as they are about to select lunch at school, for instance, they will choose the more nutritious foods,” said Campbell.
Forget royal palaces and high-brow museums. Today, when tourists want to feel close to well-known figures of yesteryear, they pay a visit to their final resting places. But some famous types are hard to find because they’re entombed in unmarked graves — say, from lack of funds or an intense wish for privacy (even in the afterlife).Here are ten luminaries buried on the down low.Wolfgang Amadeus MozartThe memorial Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart – St. Marx Cemetery, Vienna, Austria. Photo by Invisigoth67 CC BY-SA 2.5One might have expected an elaborate send off for the gifted young composer, who passed away in 1791, at the age of 35, from rheumatic fever.But Mozart was buried in an unmarked pauper’s grave alongside four other people, in St. Marx Cemetery, near Vienna. The composer’s lavish lifestyle left him with little in the way of money, and marked graves were for the wealthy.Mozart c. 1780, detail from portrait by Johann Nepomuk della Croce.In 1801, a memorial was placed where it was thought Mozart’s grave might be; a proper memorial stone was erected by a cemetery caretaker in 1859.To celebrate the 100th anniversary of his death, in 1891, the memorial — though not the composer’s actual remains — was moved to the Central Cemetery where other honored musicians, Beethoven included, had graves.John WayneIt’s not all that surprising that tough guy Wayne wouldn’t want people to make a fuss over his passing. Indeed, his grave is pretty modest.John Wayne in Rio Bravo (1959).His family opted to leave his grave unmarked to prevent his grave from becoming a shrine and detracting from surrounding resting places at Pacific View Memorial Park in Orange County, California. In 1998, almost 20 years after The Duke succumbed to lung cancer, a simple bronze plaque was added to the gravesite.John BelushiOne of the original stars of Saturday Night Live and the guitar-smashing “Bluto” Blutarsky in the big-screen comedy Animal House, Belushi died of a drug overdose in 1982 and was buried in Martha’s Vineyard, Massachusetts — a place that he and his wife had grown to love.Saturday Night Live – Episode 6 – Pictured: Dan Aykroyd as Elwood Blues, John Belushi as Jake Blues performing as musical guest the Blues Brothers, November 18, 1978. Photo by NBC/NBCU Photo Bank via Getty ImagesBut rowdy, Bud-chugging fans visiting his grave left it in bad shape, so Belushi’s wife had his remains moved to an undisclosed location in the same cemetery. In the meantime, the original headstone, where fans still pay their respects, still stands.Bessie SmithNicknamed the “Empress of Blues,” the singer reigned supreme during the Jazz Age of the early 1920s, working with legends including a young Louis Armstrong.Smith’s career hit the skids because of a battle with alcohol, but she was on the verge of a comeback when she died in a car crash in 1937.Bessie SmithAn estimated seven thousand fans flocked to Smith’s funeral, held near Philadelphia. Beloved though she was, her grave went without a headstone for decades, her husband, Jack Gee, refusing to fork over money.Decades later, in 1970, Janis Joplin, a fan of Smith’s, paid for a tombstone, which read: The Greatest Blues Singer in the World Will Never Stop Singing. Just two months later, Joplin herself would die of a heroin overdose.Roy OrbisonRoy Orbison’s grave. Photo by Ben Churchill CC BY 2.0The raven-haired, honey-voiced crooner, with the trademark dark sunglasses, who made “Pretty Woman” a huge hit in 1964, died of a heart attack in 1988.Orbison was buried at Westwood Village Memorial Park and Mortuary, a popular resting place for big names, such as Marilyn Monroe, Jack Lemmon and Dean Martin.Roy Orbinson. Photo by Jac. de Nijs / Anefo – Nationaal Archief CC BY 4.0Apparently, Orbison’s family had planned to relocate him — perhaps back to his native Texas — but never got around to moving his remains, so a marker has never been put at the gravesite.George C. ScottGeorge C. Scott grave at Westwood Village Memorial Park Cemetery in Brentwood, California. Photo by Meribona CC BY SA 3.0The tough, gravelly-voiced actor appeared in many well-known films — Dr. Strangelove and Anatomy of a Murder among them.But his biggest claim to fame was to flat-out refuse the Best Actor Oscar he won in 1970 for his portrayal of hard-as-nails General George S. Patton, in the movie Patton.Publicity still of George C. Scott for the film The Hustler (1961).After Scott died in 1999, of a ruptured abdominal aneurysm, he was buried in an unmarked plot in Westwood Memorial. His neighbor for all eternity, ironically: fellow incognito inanimate, Roy Orbison.Richard TrevithickPortrait of Richard Trevithick, engineer.This British-born mechanical engineer and inventor, born in 1771, should be a lot more famous. Instead, he’s more likely to pop up on an episode of Jeopardy.For the record, Trevithick constructed the first steam locomotive, an invention which made him a very wealthy man.Unfortunately, dubious business decisions cost him dearly — though others managed to make a pretty penny off his genius ideas — and he would die penniless in 1833, and placed in an unmarked grave.Mary DyerMary Dyer being led to the gallows in Boston, 1660.A controversial figure during the 1600s, Dyer rejected Puritan beliefs and embraced Quakerism, a denomination that believed people didn’t need ministers to speak to God.This didn’t sit well with Puritans, who felt it threatened the power of church leaders, so Dyer and her fellow Quakers were exiled from Massachusetts.Dyer went to Rhode Island, but returned to Boston to support two friends who were jailed for their beliefs. All three were sentenced to death but were granted a reprieve and Dyer was once again tossed out of the state. Ever the glutton for punishment, she returned to fight for religious freedom.Officials had had enough and Dyer was hung in Boston Common in 1660 then buried in an unmarked plot, though some believe her body was transported to a family farm.Eventually, cooler heads — and common sense — would prevail and guilt over her execution would lead to the end of anti-Quaker laws. Today, a statue of Dyer stands in Boston Common, where her life came to an untimely end.Steve JobsApple computer Chairman Steve Jobs with new LISA computer during press preview. Photo by Ted Thai/The LIFE Picture Collection/Getty ImagesHe was a hard-to-figure enigma in life, so it makes sense that Jobs would want his postmortem address kept under-wraps.No matter: People still make pilgrimages to Alta Mesa Memorial Park in Palo Alto, California, to pay their respects. Exactly where the tech whiz’s remains are located is something of a secret.There’s no marker, though many suspect that Jobs is buried near his parents.Read another story from us: Puzzling and Funny Epitaphs of the Rich and FamousOthers claim that his widow and sister requested that he be ensconced near an apple orchard (get it?).

Tags: Air France, KLM Air France CEO resigns after employees reject wage offer Share By: The Associated Press PARIS — Air France-KLM CEO Jean-Marc Janaillac announced his decision to resign Friday as Air France crews and ground staff held their 13th day of strikes over pay and rejected the company’s wage proposal.In an electronic vote Friday, Air France employees rejected management’s offer for a 2% pay rise this year and additional 5 per cent raise from 2019 to 2021. A report showed that 55% of responders voted against the proposal.Unions want a 5.1% pay rise this year, arguing that their wages have been frozen since 2011 amid restructuring and noting that the company’s profits are up.The company argued it must preserve its ability to stay competitive against low-cost airlines and big-spending Mideast and Asian carriers.“This is a huge waste that can only make our competitors rejoice,” Janaillac said of the failed vote.Air France-KLM shares fell earlier Friday after the company announced the strikes had already cost the airline at least 300 million euros ($359,000). Air France-KLM also forecast a “notably” lower income this year compared to 2017.More news: A new low for no-frills flying: easyJet assigns backless seat to passengerJanaillac, who had been in the post since July 2016, met with the company board Thursday to discuss the quarterly results and the forecast.After a protracted financial slump, Air France-KLM profits climbed last year as it expanded its global alliances and launched a new budget airline. The growth was helped by years of job cuts and other restructuring efforts.Janaillac warned last year that volatile fuel prices and geopolitical risks could threaten the company’s turnaround, but didn’t appear to predict the heavy toll that the strikes would take.Janaillac will formally resign at a Board of Directors’ meeting on May 9, the company said, adding that “it will be their responsibility to take the appropriate measures to ensure the continuity of the group and Air France during the transition period.”The CEO of Air France, Franck Terner, will oversee the day-to-day operations of the company.
