Court case launched in New York over thousands of deaths blamed on sewage discharge from United Nations barracksVictims of the 2010 cholera outbreak in Haiti are filing a compensation claim against the United Nations in a New York court, demanding that billions of dollars in damages be paid to survivors and the relatives of those killed.The outbreak has killed more than 8,000 people and made 650,000 ill, according to officials, and scientific studies have shown the cholera strain was likely introduced to the country by UN troops from Nepal, where the disease is endemic, when contaminated sewage was discharged from their barracks into a watercourse. Before that cholera cases had been rare in Haiti.The UN maintains it has legal immunity from such compensation claims and has formally rejected claims from Haitians affected. The case is being pursued by the Boston-based Institute for Justice and Democracy in Haiti and will be filed on Wednesday in the Manhattan federal district court, according to the New York Times.On Tuesday, a UN official made a rare case for compensation for the thousands of Haitians involved. The high commissioner for human rights Navi Pillay, did not say who she thought should pay but declared: "I still stand by the call that victims of of those who suffered as a result of that cholera be provided with compensation."Pillay's remarks, streamed live on the Internet, were a rare admission by a U.N. official about the need to provide compensation following a complaint filed by the Boston-based Institute for Justice & Democracy in Haiti and the Haiti-based law firm run by Haitian attorney Mario Joseph, one of the finalists at the Geneva ceremony.Asked about Pillay's comments, UN associate spokesman Farhan Haq said it was not the "United Nations' practice to discuss in public claims filed against the organisation."HaitiCholeraUnited Nationstheguardian.com © 2013 Guardian News and Media Limited or its affiliated companies.

Critics who believe HPV vaccine can trigger suicidal thoughts damage attempts to protect girls against cervical cancerThree years ago, two teenage girls from rural villages in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh consumed poison and killed themselves. Neither knew the other; they lived some 37 miles apart, and there was a five-month gap between their deaths. The only obvious connection between these suicides was the method: the pair swallowed pesticide, the availability of which makes it the most commonly used suicide method among girls in rural India.Yet these two tragedies have become inexorably entwined, capturing public attention, as did the deaths of five other girls – one of whom drowned, another who was bitten by a snake and another with malaria. These unrelated deaths have been used by anti-vaccine campaigners in the country to undermine a medicine that protects girls from cervical cancer.The supposed link between these deaths was the fact that several weeks prior, or in some cases months, the girls had received a vaccine to protect them against human papillomavirus (HPV), the most common cause of cervical cancer. For anti-inoculation groups this was enough to deem the jab unsafe.A media and political frenzy ensued and, three years later, HPV vaccines have failed to regain public confidence in India. Even today, a public interest litigation, filed this year against the use of HPV vaccines in India, and a parliamentary panel report, published last month, are claiming these girls' deaths are linked to the jab.Given that India has the largest number of cervical cancer deaths in the world – with more than 70,000 women and girls, or a quarter of all cases, dying every year – the suspension of this vital vaccine programme will inevitably cost lives.The problem is not the safety record of HPV vaccines – more than 175m doses have been distributed worldwide, from Nepal and Bhutan to Australia and the US, with the main side effect being fainting. The issue is the culture of blame and the misunderstanding of how vaccines are monitored and evaluated. This is a vital part of establishing vaccine safety and should be encouraged.Whenever a vaccine is introduced it is important to cast the net wide and study any potentially adverse effects in recipients. This makes it possible to gauge the prevalence of known side effects and to detect any that may not have been apparent during clinical trials. But that does not mean that every so-called adverse event following immunisation (AEFI), is attributable to the vaccine. In the vast majority of cases, the vaccine is ruled out.This subtle distinction is often lost when reported, and not just in the mainstream media. A recent article published in a medical journal that is subject to peer review, the gold standard of scientific scrutiny, used the terms "died of AEFIs" and "deaths due to AEFIs" when questioning the safety of the five-in-one pentavalent vaccine. The point is that by definition the relationship is temporal and not causal.That is not to say that vaccines cannot lead to serious adverse reactions. We know, for example, that for every 2-3m administered doses of the oral polio vaccine, one recipient will have a serious adverse reaction.For the diphtheria-tetanus-pertussis (DTP) vaccine, used routinely throughout the world for decades, serious reactions occur closer to one in every 750,000. Although this can be terrible for those directly affected and their families, the overall benefit of the vaccine – preventing many more deaths and illnesses – balances out a very small number of negative reactions.In the case of HPV vaccines, critics argue that the vaccine could trigger suicidal thoughts and tendencies, as has been the case with some antidepressants. With more than 175m doses distributed worldwide, suicidal ideation has never before been implicated. Also, the known mechanisms for suicide tend to act on the regulation of serotonin, the mood neurotransmitter, and have nothing to do with t

On our recent trip to Finalnd, we were taken with the understated elegance of Kristiina Lassus’ hand-knotted rugs. The Helsinki-born designer, whose resume includes products created for Alessi, exhibited a range of subtle patterns and richly organic designs during Helsinki Design Week, expressed in masterfully crafted wool rugs, hand made in Nepal by Indian and Nepalese artisans. Infused with delicate nature-inspired forms (we especially love the Miro-like renderings of the KUUMA line), Lassus’ work reflects the creative influences of distant cultures, while somehow expressing the subtlety and restraint intrinsic to her Nordic sensibilities.

I tell Werner Herzog jokes at parties. David Attenborough makes me swoon. I’m such a documentary nerd, I’ve gone places because of them. These 10 travel docs may compel you to do the same. 1. Baraka Locations: 25 countries on 6 continents including heavyweight sights like the Galapagos Islands, Angkor Wat, Jerusalem’s Western Wall, and St. Peter’s Basilica Inspiring because: From the opening scene in which you can almost touch the steamed, matted fur on Japanese snow monkeys in their alpine bath, Baraka gives you a front-row seat to our planet’s diverse happenings. The chill of Auschwitz’s rusted chambers is palpable, as is the warmth of breaking dawn on a lone street sweeper in Durbar Square, Nepal. There’s no narrative, only a swelling, reverent score, leaving the viewer to add her own commentary. If you’re anything like me, it may go something like… “Damnit, there are too many places I haven’t been and if I die without seeing them, I’m gonna be pissed. That’s it, I’m quitting my job.” 2. Blindsight Location: Tibet Inspiring because: The story of six blind Tibetan kids climbing Everest is a unique entry point into the best and worst of a fascinating region. Like many, I’ve always put Tibet on a pedestal — easy to do when a country is positioned as both underdog (a victim of Chinese imperialism) and moral authority (birthplace of the Dalai Lama). But Tibet has flaws like anywhere else — for instance, its shocking treatment of blind people. Openly mocked in the streets, chained to beds in dark rooms, their predicament had me weeping in the film’s first five minutes. In the end, though, the spirit and humor of the young mountain climbers and the beauty of the Himalayas deepened my interest in Tibet. Plus real-life travel heroes Sabriye Tenberken and Erik Weihenmayer — she founded Tibet’s first school for the blind, he’s the only blind man to climb Everest — will inspire even the most complacent of armchair travelers. 3. The Endless Summer Locations: Southern California, Western and South Africa, Australia, New Zealand, Tahiti, Hawaii Inspiring because: Widely touted as the original “surf trip,” this 1966 classic has moved many a dude (and dudette) to drop everything for Bali or Byron Bay. The concept is simple — two surfers chase summer across the globe in search of the perfect wave. But the resulting adventure is full of touching encounters. Like the driver who’s so chuffed to have visitors, he insists on a free tour of his hometown. And the folks in Ghana who gather on the beach with packed lunches to watch them surf like they’re Cirque du Soleil. It makes me nostalgic for a time I never knew, a time when large parts of the world were still untouched by tourism and the only way to share a new sport was not online or on DVD, but in person. 4. Frozen Planet Locations: The North and South Poles Inspiring because: BBC nature documentaries bring us the most rarest, most remote and spectacularly beautiful parts of our planet. To my knowledge, no other production outfit comes close in terms of quantity, quality, and scale. While every series is superb, I single out Frozen Planet because as someone who had little interest in ice, I found myself completely riveted by killer marine icicles, the thunderous spectacle of ice calving, and a never-before-seen polar bear birth. Far from barren tundra, Frozen Planet shows us the poles are rock stars in their own right. 5. The Fruit Hunters Locations: Bali, Borneo, Honduras, Umbria, Miami, Hollywood Hills Inspiring because: It encourages us to travel with our mouths, like the film’s fruit sleuths who, in their search for rare mangoes and forgotten Renaissance-era pears, take us to remote jungles, an Italian villa, even Bill Pullman’s backyard. While I may not be willing to go quite as far for sweet juiciness, the seductive way in which the fruit is shot — extreme closeups of a star fruit’s glistening insides or the cottony fuzz of ice cream beans &#

Reviews on the two shows at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive: "Beauty Revealed: Images of Women in Qing Dynasty Painting," and "Deities, Demons, and Teachers of Tibet, Nepal, and India." http://www.examiner.com/article/...
Reviews on the two shows at the Berkeley Art Museum and Pacific Film Archive: "Beauty Revealed: Images of Women in Qing Dynasty Painting," and "Deities, Demons, and Teachers of Tibet, Nepal, and India." http://www.examiner.com/article/beauty-revealed-images-of-women-qing-dynasty-paintingAddendum to the reviews: Another downside of the show at the Berkeley Art Museum - in fact, all their shows, is the lack of images on their website AND the steely eyed monitoring of the galleries by the student guards. The kids are nice but no photos, no way, no how. I found some images on other websites but little that's usable. Ditto for the exuberant, vital images of the deities and demons from Northern India and the Himalayan kingdoms. The tepid image on the press release doesn't do justice to the vibrant sculptures and Tibetan Thangkas.The other problem with exhibits at this museum is how inaccessible it is. If you are young and/or have the stamina, you can walk from Berkeley Bart. It's about a 30 - 40 minutes, uphill and on a hot day, very difficult if you have asthma (which I do have). There are 2 buses that go by the museum: the F which comes by every hour (more or less) and the 52 which comes by more often but has a cleverly hidden bus stop and no schedule information that I could find. Bus drivers may be friendly (or not) but most do not know where the museum is. So, since I live in SF, it's 3 buses to the museum - Muni to Bart, Bart to downtown Berkeley and another bus to the museum. If I am lucky, I can do it in an hour; if not, it can take up to 2 hours. Parking is non-existent. I will be so glad when the new museum is finished. It's right around the corner from the downtown Berkeley BART station and will allow me to do a lot more in Berkeley.
