first_imgNathan Congleton/NBC Twitter This year’s annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade caused controversy due to a dance number from Broadway musical “The Prom” that featured two women kissing — the first time a same-sex kiss has ever been broadcast during coverage of the family-friendly NYC parade.Naturally, the kiss was deemed to be offensive by right-wing groups such as ForAmerica, which shared their horrified reactions and lamented how children throughout America had been traumatized.Millions of small children just watched two girls kiss and had their innocence broken this morning. @nbc and @Macys just blindsided parents who expected this to be a family program, so they could push their agenda on little kids. #macysthanksgivingdayparade #MacysDayParade pic.twitter.com/EmCLSfNmAj— ForAmerica (@ForAmerica) November 22, 2018 Advertisement Enter William Shatner. A social media powerhouse with a track record for suffering neither fools nor bigots who turn up on his Twitter feed, the 87-year-old Montreal native found himself dragged into the debate.? Really? I’m in the middle of a thread where people are upset that the Macy’s parade featured two women kissing 48 hours ago! ? https://t.co/ndTqwdMCJR— William Shatner (@WilliamShatner) November 24, 2018That offhand remark was met with ire by a Twitter user who took issue with the notion that airing a same-sex kiss on TV is “forward-thinking,” and earned a firm rebuke from the former “Star Trek” captain.“Kissing is kissing no matter who is doing it,” responded Shatner. “If you think it damages a child to show public affection; you are the one who needs help.” Login/Register With:center_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Advertisement Facebooklast_img read more

Security Council voices serious concern after deadly violence in Burundi

25 April 2008The Security Council has condemned the recent deadly spate of violent confrontations between Burundi’s National Defence Forces and the Palipehutu-FNL rebel group in and around the capital, Bujumbura. Council members, in a presidential statement issued yesterday, called on the two parties “to scrupulously respect” the ceasefire they reached in September 2006 and to resume dialogue to overcome any obstacles that might delay the conclusion to the peace process.They also urged the Palipehutu-FNL (Forces Nationales de Libération) to return immediately – and without any preconditions – to the Joint Verification and Monitoring Mechanism that was established in the wake of the ceasefire accord.“Any attempt to jeopardize peace in Burundi through violent means is unacceptable,” according to the statement, read out by Ambassador Dumisani Kumalo of South Africa, which holds the rotating Council presidency this month.He added that the 15-member body backed several existing regional initiatives to bring the parties together to overcome the current crisis and implement earlier commitments, and that it may consider additional measures of its own to support peace and stability.Last Friday Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon issued a similar statement through his spokesperson on the fighting.Burundi is attempting to rebuild, with the support of the UN Integrated Office in the country (BINUB), after a brutal civil war between its Hutu majority and the Tutsi minority. read more

UN reveals five winners of its Citizen Ambassador video contest

16 October 2009“Every day I want you to wake up and know that you work for 6.7 billion real people, one person at a time. People with children, and dreams, and stories.” With this moving message to world leaders, narrated over portraits she shot in North Kivu province in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), Emily Troutman submitted a winning video to the United Nations’ “Citizen Ambassadors” contest.Launched on 23 September to coincide with the start of the General Debate segment of the General Assembly, the campaign invited world citizens – youth in particular – to voice their opinions to heads of State and government by creating a video response to the question: “If you had the opportunity to speak to world leaders, what would you say?”The winners of the innovative outreach campaign were announced today, with honours awarded to the five best entries. Chosen from more than 400 videos, a shortlist of 20 finalists were viewed by a panel of United Nations staff members representing the Department of Public Information (DPI), the Office for the Coordination of Human Affairs (OCHA), the Department of Peacekeeping Operations (DPKO) and the UN Development Program (UNDP).“Seeing this level of enthusiasm all over the world was a surprise,” said Eric Falt, Director of the Outreach Division at the DPI, who addressed a news conference alongside Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information Kiyo Akasaka.The five winners were selected this week in a judging session which was videotaped and posted on the United Nations’ YouTube channel. The winners, Ms. Troutman of the United States, Maricarmen Ortega of Mexico, Kirsty Matthews of Canada, Breno Coelho of Brazil, and Jeremy Walker of Canada, have been designated as “Citizen Ambassadors” for the UN.They have also been invited to visit the UN Headquarters in New York next week, where they will meet high-ranking officials, take a special tour of the complex, and enjoy VIP seating at the UN Day concert held in the General Assembly Hall on 23 October.Responding to her achievement, Ms. Matthews said: “Equality, sustainability and justice; these are the things that matter. I made this video to remind world leaders of that.”Ms. Troutman said she was compelled to submit a video because “real change is only created by hope and empathy, by strength and commitment [and] by listening to others.”The campaign is the latest in a series of initiatives launched by Secretary General Ban Ki-moon that seek to increase awareness of the work of the UN and to engage a new generation of world citizens through enhanced use of the Internet and online social networking.This week also marks the launch of DPI’s “UN4U” programme, during which UN officials will visit public high schools throughout New York City to raise awareness about the Organization’s work and commemorate UN Day. The programme will be carried out in other countries as well, with a series of activities that include an outreach event involving 500 students in Brazzaville, Republic of Congo, a photo exhibition in Bogota, Colombia, and a series of lectures aimed at more than 800 students in Dhaka, Bangladesh. read more

General Assembly marks day honouring Buddha and his teachings

Buddha’s teachings “can guide our efforts to resolve the severe problems facing today’s world,” Mr. Ban said in a message marking the Day of Vesak, which is being celebrated today in many parts of the world. “His injunction against the three poisons of greed, anger and ignorance is especially relevant to multilateral efforts to overcome the hunger that needlessly affects nearly a billion people in a world of plenty, the brutal violence that takes millions of lives each year, and the senseless environmental damage that human cause to our only home, the planet Earth.” The Secretary-General said that while this year’s theme to the Day of Vesak, socio-economic development, may sound modern, “its core is the very problem of human suffering” that Siddhartha Gautama [Buddha] sought to address more than 2,500 years ago when he left his palace, relinquished his worldly possessions and went out in the world.” Mr. Ban voiced gratitude for the support of many Buddhist organizations towards United Nations efforts to attain the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), “our blueprint for enabling all people to enjoy lives of dignity and opportunity.” The MDGs are a series of targets which world leaders have pledged to try to achieve by 2015, and they include halving poverty, halting environmental degradation and significantly reducing maternal and child mortality. The General Assembly held a special meeting today to mark the Day of Vesak, and Mr. Ban told the event that it was important to remember Buddha’s message of tolerance. “Let us respect all religions. And let us work for the well-being of all people,” he said. 16 May 2011As millions of people worldwide observe the birth, enlightenment and passing of the Buddha, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has paid tribute to the spiritual leader’s teaching on the need for compassion and solidarity with those less fortunate. read more

Column Want to break into the digital sector but arent sure how

first_imgWant to pursue a career in the digital sector, but not sure about what skills are needed? Twitter’s Managing Director in Ireland, Stephen McIntyre, talks about his experience of working for a social networking company – and asks others to share their experiences. WHEN I JOINED Twitter in early 2012, our Dublin office consisted of eight desks (four of them empty), a self-assembled IKEA couch and a broken coffee machine. Today our European headquarters is in a beautiful new office in The Academy on Pearse Street, where we have more than a hundred staff and plans to double in the coming year.There are more than fifteen functions in Dublin, including Engineering, Sales, Marketing, Finance, Legal, Public Policy, User Services, and HR. In order to catch a glimpse of life inside the Twitter machine, I asked five of our employees to share their thoughts.“Knowing how to code is a fantastic skill to have – it opens many doors”Stan Massueras, Manager Advertising-Sales FranceI am originally from the South of France and I moved to Dublin 10 years ago. Dublin is an incredible city and a great place to start your career. It has all the advantages of a European capital without all of the inconveniences. People are welcoming, it is multicultural, there is no need to commute for hours in the morning and it is a great place to live if you are a music lover.I have a degree in Human-resources Management but now I regret that I did not learn how to code at some point during my education. Nowadays, knowing how to code is a fantastic skill to have and it opens many doors, especially if you can mix technical skills with great business acumen. I initially started my career in Ireland working in the IT industry and spent time working in Hewlett-Packard and Xerox before moving into Social-Media five years ago.At Twitter, I manage a team of French Advertising experts and Sales-Consultants. We work closely with Media-agencies and advertisers in order to show them how to achieve their Marketing objectives with Twitter. We are based in Dublin but we travel frequently in order to meet with partners, advertisers and attend different events.Online advertising is changing, and to work in this sector you need to have a deep understanding of the behaviour of your audience, to present the right message in front of the right people, in the right place, and at the right time. What worked today for an advertiser will probably not work next month. We need to understand what the new trends will be, so having a mix of creativity and analytical skills are needed to really succeed in this industry. This is a fascinating sector and I would recommend it to everyone to join us while this industry is still young.“I had always worked in the public sector so it was a bit of a culture shock”Sinead McSweeney, Head of Public Policy EMEAI’ve been working at Twitter Dublin since July 2012 which makes me one of the veterans in what is a rapidly growing office. Before I joined Twitter, I had always worked in the public sector so it was a bit of a culture shock not least because, for the first time, I was one of the oldest employees in the office rather than one of the youngest. I was drawn to the company because of its commitment to principles like freedom of expression and privacy and attracted by the incredible potential it offers to connect people with each other, with events and with other parts of the world.My role covers all of Europe, the Middle East and Africa (EMEA) which means I do quite a lot of travelling. That is not always as much fun as it sounds however I love learning about the different cultures, contexts and environments within which our service is used from country to country.Public Policy is a fairly broad area covering many diverse issues. I can rarely predict on a Monday what my week will look like or what conversations I will have had by Friday. Ultimately my job is to be a voice for Twitter with governments, regulators and influencers to raise their awareness of what Twitter is and the values and policies which guide our platform and business.My advice to people starting their chosen career is to think about the number of hours in the day and days in the year that you spend working. That is far too high a proportion of your life to spend being unhappy so if you find yourself somewhere you don’t want to be, don’t be afraid to take the steps to change your path.“My day-to-day job is very diverse”María Crespo Gil, International User Services Agent.I am originally from Barcelona in Spain, after spending eight years in Madrid and Lisbon I moved to Dublin a year and a half ago. I studied Journalism in college and then got a job with a Spanish social networking company working to help their users, but I really wanted to work for an international platform so I relocated to Dublin.I joined Twitter in June 2013, I work on the User Services team as an International Agent, primarily helping our Spanish users. My day-to-day job is very diverse, it ranges from helping users with a lot of different issues, if you can’t login in your account, I’m one of the people who will help you regain access. My team will also help you if you ever experience any difficulty with the platform like changing the profile image or sending DMs.Twitter became my working home amazingly quickly, there is a really friendly and enthusiastic culture and a feeling that everyone is united behind the company’s goals. I think everyone comes to work with a unique attitude of “be the person you would like to work with”.  We are constantly encouraged to innovate, improve our skills, and gain new ones, while we create awesome things surrounded by the most talented, helpful and passionate people in the digital sector. It’s impossible to not be inspired here sometimes!My main piece of advice to young people would be the advice I tell my friends “”We are young. We have the passion and the dreams. Never forget that!”“Remember that many skills are transferable and can be developed – in any industry”Caroline Bergin – Organisational Effectiveness & Learning Manager EMEAI look after organisational effectiveness and learning for Twitter in Europe. My role is to help employees to be successful today and develop the capabilities we need as a company to be successful tomorrow. My day to day job involves working with managers and employees to build programs that help people to do their jobs today and develop key skills and competencies to advance their careers.After 16 years in the Learning and Development world. my work challenges me to take a fresh look at how learning opportunities get built into everyone’s daily life. In this busy work environment people don’t always have the time or desire to take two days out to dedicate to learning one subject. Our goal is to make learning live, impactful and, like Twitter, focused on connecting with people in the moment.I originally studied Psychology in college and then completed my BA in Industrial Relations and Human Resources and a post Graduate diploma in Training and Development part-time while working. I am also currently two out of four years through my Masters, which is actually in Psychotherapy. As you can see, I am passionate about adult learning and think Ireland is a great place to go back and study as a working adult.The digital sector in Dublin is vibrant right now and offers many opportunities for people to develop careers in high growth, high tech organisations like Twitter. However, it’s important to remember that many skills are transferable and can be developed in any industry. My previous experience in financial services, IT services and not-for-profit organisations continues to be just as relevant to me today. Technical competency is always a requirement but personality and passion also matter.To quote someone very smart, people want three things in their job. They want to learn, they want to make an impact and they want to work with great people. In Twitter we offer all three.“I studied Communication and Marketing in college”Cedric Brunings, Account Executive, The NetherlandsWhen I was asked during my job interview why I wanted to switch from a job as a Sales Director at MTV to that of an Account Executive at Twitter, the answer was very simple: I wanted to be part of a young organisation with enormous potential that was changing people’s lives and how they interact with each other. I found this at Twitter. The fact that the company is still relatively small makes it very easy to make an impact and makes you feel part of something special.Needless to say, many professionals look at the company in a similar way and have the ambition to work for this amazing company. My background in TV and my experience in advertising helped me prove that I could make a contribution.I studied Communication and Marketing in college and although I am not working in that exact field my college degree definitely helped me in finding the right career path. It also helped me develop a set of skills to analyse and approach internal and external business issues. As an Account Executive for the Dutch Market I am responsible for finding advertisers in The Netherlands and show them how to hit their sales and marketing objectives using our service. We are based in the Dublin office but I travel to The Netherlands once every two months to visit my clients.Having worked at Twitter for a little more than four months now, it is amazing to see how involved, energetic and creative everybody in this industry is. We are all contributing to growing our business in a way that makes us proud which gives us a great sense of purpose.If you’d like to apply for a job in Twitter check out https://twitter.com/jobs/positions/ or follow @JoinTheFlockEU on Twitter to hear about new roles as they become available.last_img read more

Court hears Jim Corrs financial affairs are chaotic

first_imgUpdated 2.20pmTHE ONLY MALE member of Irish band The Corrs is appearing before the Commercial Court today to answer questions about an outstanding loan of  €778,000 from ACC Bank.Corr is being cross examined by the bank’s legal team about his assets following claims that he has liabilities of more than €6.5 million. The 48-year-old musician secured a €1.4 million loan in 2004, which remains mostly unpaid almost nine years later.When he took to the stand this afternoon,  Corr was asked about his living arrangements. He told the court he pays the mortgage on a house for his ex-partner while he himself spends ‘most’ of his time in another house, which is owned by a German friend, Florian Karrer.He told the court he met Karrer at party he attended with his sisters in Majorca in 2010 and said that although Karrrer has no ties to Ireland,  he fell in love with the country.Earlier, Corr’s barrister Ross Aylward acknowledged that the musician’s financial affairs were ‘chaotic’ during an application for the case to be adjourned to a later date.Aylward requested that JudgePeter Kelly drop the cross examination and said that his client wasn’t fully aware of all the relevant documentation which was needed today. The barrister said that this could lead to some confusion.Bernard Dunleavy, barrister for ACC Bank, accepted that Corr had short notice of the planned cross examination, and said his client would agree to an adjournment if Corr would swear not to declare bankruptcy in any country.When Corr’s barrister declined, Mr Justice Peter Kelly decided to proceed with the examination by ACC Bank, telling the court that although Corr may not have all the documents needed, but some of the information would be factual which he should know.In 2011, Corr consented to a €1.4 million summary judgement order against him. The loan was initially intended to buy land at Goresbridge in Kilkenny.-Additional reporting by Sinéad O’Carroll and Christine BohanRead a full account of Jim Corr’s testimony from Amy Croffey tomorrow morning on TheJournal.ie THAT Jim Corr appearance on the Late Late Show>last_img read more

Coast Guard rules make licensing exam harder for area fishing guides

first_imgDavid Parks Jr. gives some casting tips to his client Sarah Pearl in the Kulik River at the Bristol Bay Guide Academy, June 2015. (Photo by Matt Martin/KDLG)An upcoming course at the Southwest Alaska Vocational and Education Center will help prospective fishing guides get ready for a Coast Guard exam required to get a “six-pack” operator’s license.But area lodge owners say recent rule changes by the U.S. Coast Guard have made it the process of getting that license more difficult.Nanci Morris Lyon owns the Alaska Sportsman’s Bear Trail Lodge, and she teaches the Bristol Bay Guide Academy, a weeklong summer course that trains young people from the region to be fly-fishing guides.About 15 of Lyon’s students have gone on to become licensed guides, which until last year meant they had to log 180 eight-hour days on freshwater before taking a test to get their Coast Guard license.But recently, Lyon says, the Coast Guard has doubled that sea-time requirement and now requires guides to log time on each body of water where they’ll be running boats.“Which is really the worst of both worlds for the Academy students, because it’s going to take them a long time to receive that certification.”The certification the Coast Guard now wants Western Alaska guides to have is called the Restricted Operator Uninspected Passenger Vessel (ROUPV) license, commonly known as the “six-pack” or six-passenger license.And Lyon says restricting the 360-day requirement to certain waterways will make it very difficult for her lodge to hire guides who have that six-pack license.“In any given year, I keep boats on American Creek, Alagnak River, Naknek River, Nushagak River, I’ve had them down on Egegik, I use boats on the Kvichak, and down on Ugashik. So start adding those up – it’s gonna take a lot of years to have a fully qualified guide.”In addition to the time and location requirements, the new rules also come with a more complicated test.Lyon says the exam now asks students to demonstrate advanced math and navigation skills that they won’t actually need as a guide in Bristol Bay.“It’s obviously a severe deterrent for my class. I’m targeting youth who are more interested in hands-on life skill than they are college training. And it’s the same way with our guides. Now, our guides who had a passion for the outdoors, who weren’t maybe the kids that were modeled for a college career, had an opportunity to enter into worthwhile and lucrative business that would allow them to have a future in something they truly loved… And I think the industry will hurt greatly.”Lyon plans to travel to D.C. this spring to talk to Alaska Senators Lisa Murkowski and Dan Sullivan about getting the Coast Guard to create more realistic rules for Western Alaska.The upcoming SAVEC class is February 23-24. Lyon says it will be very valuable in helping guides get prepared for the Coast Guard test, but only for those who have already logged most of their sea-time.The course is fully funded for watershed residents. For registration information call 246-4600, or email annette@savec.org.last_img read more

Donald Trumps Shocking insult to the Queen revisited

first_imgWASHINGTON, DC – FEBRUARY 22: U.S. President Donald Trump speaks during a meeting with Chinese Vice Premier Liu He in the Oval Office of the White House February 22, 2019 in Washington, DC. Liu is in Washington with the Chinese delegation to participate in the U.S.-China trade talks.Alex Wong/Getty ImagesDonald Trump is an outspoken President to say the least, and some have wondered how and what he may say o do that may make his visit to the UK memorable or rather controversial.Apparently, newly-resurfaced reports reveal how he was accused of delivering a “mortal insult” to the Queen last year. Reportedly The US President and his wife, Melania Trump were in the UK for a three-day official state visit. The trip reportedly included a series of engagements, including a meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May and an invitation to Buckingham Palace from Her Majesty the Queen.This is the US President’s second visit to the UK a working trip last summer that saw him push the boundaries of royal protocol on more than one occasion. In particular, according to a royal historian, there is one thing he did in front of the monarch that was equivalent to a “mortal insult.” Donald Trump, the President of the United States reportedly turned his back on the Queen and then walked in front of her while inspecting the guard at Windsor Castle – actions that are all considered to be major faux pas when it comes to royal etiquette.  U.S. President Donald Trump waves after speaking during the Republican Jewish Coalition’s annual leadership meeting at The Venetian Las Vegas on April 6, 2019 in Las Vegas, Nevada. Trump has cited his moving of the U.S. embassy in Israel to Jerusalem and his decision to pull the U.S. out of the Iran nuclear deal as reasons for Jewish voters to leave the Democratic party and support him and the GOP instead.Ethan Miller/Getty ImagesHistorian Ian Beck apparently wrote on Twitter: “Trump has also turned his back on the Queen.”I have always believed this to be a mortal insult to a monarch.”Moreover, the US President also breached protocol by revealing what the Queen told him about Brexit during an interview with Good Morning Britain.Donald Trump is not known for his social graces, but as President one would expect him to follow a modicum of civility. Meghan Markle avoided meeting President Trump as she is still apparently on maternity leave. It is no secret that Meghan Markle is not a big an of Donald Trump and the fact that the Duchess avoided meeting the President of her own country may be a strong indication that her feelings towards Donal Trump haven’t changed. But it looks like Donald Trump isn’t letting the feelings of a few Royals get him down.last_img read more

Bangla folk art beyond borders

first_imgA brass-work of Sukanta Banik. Photo: Prothom AloTwo artists have highlighted Bangla folk art at a global level. These artists have no formal training from any institution.Shambhu Acharya, from Munshiganj, has given Bengal’s patachitra (a folk art form) new life while Sukanta Banik from Dhamrai has revived metal craft. They have brought back the richness of the country’s art and culture. Prime minister Sheikh Hasina and the former British prime minister Tony Blair jointly inaugurated the Bangladesh Festival with Shambhu’s patachitra in London in 1999.Sukanta was determined to take the metal craft of Dhamrai to the world stage. Acharya, whose family comes from Thakurbari of Kalindipara in Munshiganj, has been practising the patachitra tradition of for over 450 years.A Potchitra by Shambhu Acharya. Photo: Prothom AloOn 9 April he was working at home. His son Abhishek Acharya was with him. While working he talked to this correspondent.It was in 1977. Artist Tofael Ahmed the visited Asutosh Museum and noticed a patachitra painting which was described as the “only Gazir Pata of both of Bengal”. He wondered about this as he did not know that there was a patachitra painter in Bangladesh. After returning home, he sought out Durjon Ali from Narsingdi who had a patachitra. Durjon Ali said he bought it from Sudhir Acharya from Munshiganj. Sudhir Acharya is father of Shambhu Acharya. Since then, the fame of patachitra of Acharya family started to spread.Sukanta Banik. Photo: Prothom AloShambhu told Prothom Alo that he mixes modern thought with tradition as a subject in his pata painting.Sukanta Banik’s brass craftSukanta Banik’s old house located in Dhamrai is laden with artifacts of brass. The house is being used as both factory and showroom.“This is my family business over the last two centuries. I am the fifth generation of my family involved in the business,” Sukanta said.He said the once thriving business faced obstacles for the first time in 1947. The business was hit hard again in 1971 with a brief better time again from 1978 to 1990.“The industry started to slump again since 1990 as the fiber, stainless steel, aluminium and ceramic made goods took over the place of brass.”The industry is also hit hard by lack of qualified artisans as they moved on to other professions. Sukanta had 22 artisans in 2006 while only 6 are still working in the industry.In the face of such difficulties, Sukanta, a political science graduate, did not flinch from taking up his ancestral business.Sukanta went to the US with a cultural delegation in 2001, where he displayed his works. The US embassy in 2002 granted him $14,300 to preserve brass-metal craft.Shambhu Acharya. Photo: Prothom AloHe made a documentary with this fund which was screened and acclaimed in Switzerland in 2007.The mold by which sculptures are made in Sukanta’s factory is called ‘lost works method.’ The method is unique as no more than one sculpture can be made by this method.Sukanta said, Dhamrai’s brass metal goods are popular in Europe, Australia and the US. Statues of Buddha, Shiva, Vishnu, Radha-Krishna are particularly popular among the foreigners.  Sukanta’s dream is to transform a part of the house into a museum. It is being refurbished for the purpose.Artist Hashem Khan told Prothom Alo, “Sukanta’s endeavor is praiseworthy. Brass work is important part of our heritage. It is our duty to preserve this industry.”* This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Rabiul Islam and Galib Ashraf.last_img read more

Many Challenges Face ExInmates Living with HIV

first_imgMelissa Carter, center, chats with her son William, 13, before joining her fiance Addullah Salahuddin, right, at the computer to prepare they wedding music playlist in New York. Carter, an ex-offender who was diagnosed with HIV in 1994, met Salahuddin while both were in separate ex-offender program at Fortune Society. Her success made it possible to reconnect with her children and study for an online degree.NEW YORK (AP) — Several times each month, a white bus picks up newly released ex-inmates at New York’s Rikers Island jail complex and drives them to Harlem, where helping hands await at a transition program run by a nonprofit called the Fortune Society.As they readjust to freedom, these new arrivals face the myriad challenges confronting anyone leaving jail or prison — and a daunting additional one. They have HIV.While infection and incarceration represent a double challenge, this can be a health-care opportunity, says JoAnne Page, the Fortune Society’s president. “You don’t want to see people locked up — but if you’re trying to reach people who are HIV-positive, that’s the place to be.”Each year, according to federal estimates, one out of seven Americans with HIV passes through a correctional facility. Thousands are released every year — transitioning to the uncertainties and temptations of the outside world from a regimented environment where, in most cases, HIV medication is provided without charge.Health professionals view imprisonment as a potentially vital chance to offer HIV testing and connect HIV-positive people to health care perhaps better than they’ve ever had before. Yet these experts worry about what happens post-release, when freedom can lead to disruption of the ex-inmates’ medication, worsening their own health and raising the risk they’ll infect others.“In prison, they’re a captive audience — the medical care is relatively straightforward,” said Dr. Josiah Rich, a professor at Brown University’s medical school and co-director of the Center for Prisoner Health and Human Rights.“But when they’re out, it can be hard to track them down,” he said. “Often they’re stopping treatment at exactly the point they’re starting new sexual relationships. It’s the perfect storm — exactly what we don’t want from a public health standpoint.”Rich co-authored a study published in 2010 that set off alarm bells in the HIV-prevention field. It examined 1,750 HIV-infected inmates who’d been released from Texas prisons, and found that only 28 percent enrolled in an HIV clinic within 90 days of release.That intensified efforts to ensure post-release continuity of care, and drew attention to agencies such as New York City’s health department, which had an ambitious transitional care program in place for HIV-positive people exiting jail. At the core of the program are individual discharge plans, addressing each ex-inmate’s need for housing, food, clothing, health care and other supports.It’s a massive operation, complicated by unpredictable length of stays for many of the inmates. Alison Jordan, who oversees the program, said her team draws up about 2,500 discharge plans per year, and more than 70 percent of the released HIV-positive inmates are linked to primary health care in their community.Jordan and several colleagues, in an article two years ago, depicted New York city’s jails as the epicenter of the national HIV and AIDS epidemic. The article gauged the HIV prevalence rate in the jail population at 5.2 percent — far higher than the 1.25 percent HIV rate in the nation’s prison system or the 0.4 percent rate for the general population.Jordan views the New York program as a model for jurisdictions elsewhere and has helped develop a curriculum and training manual in response to requests for assistance.“It sounds so challenging, but on the front line, it’s really simple,” Jordan said. “It’s caring about people, being sure their basic needs are met, and helping them get to the doctor.”The Fortune Society is among the city’s partners in trying to meet these goals, sending its own staff into Rikers to help with the discharge planning and then offering newly released ex-inmates services ranging from mental health counseling to residential accommodation at its Harlem facility.Without such support, says Page, many newly released people become disconnected from care.“They return to old neighborhoods and fall back into habits that perpetuate a cycle of health decline and self-destructive behaviors that often lead back to jail or prison,” she said.For clients who have benefited from the Fortune Society’s interventions, the sense of gratitude is palpable.“I thought I was damaged goods. Coming here to Fortune helped prove me wrong,” said Melissa Carter, who was diagnosed with HIV in 1994, and was behind bars in 1997-2000 for arson and writing bad checks.In the decade after her release, she stopped taking her HIV medication — except for two pregnancies — and reverted to drug abuse. She lost custody of her children, and her health went downhill.“It came to a point where I hit rock bottom — I walked away from everyone,” she said. “The doctor told me, ‘If you don’t start taking meds, you’re not going to live to see the end of the year.’”Somehow, she ended up at the Fortune Society, and lived at the Harlem facility for two years — becoming a go-getter who helped lead group meetings and taking on baking and decorating chores for holiday celebrations.Now she has reconnected with her children, is studying for an online degree, and recently married a man who also went through Fortune programs.“I needed to change my life,” Carter said.Another Fortune client, 47-year-old Ken Sprague, said he was diagnosed with HIV in 1984, at a time when he was supporting his crack cocaine habit by shoplifting. Over the past 30 years, he was in and out of jail, and taking HIV medication only sporadically.“I’m still here. I don’t understand it,” he said. “The people I knew back then — they were dropping like flies.”Finally wearying of his lifestyle, he checked in to the Fortune Society residence last year, says he’s been drug-free for nine months and has developed a strong religious faith.“The Fortune Society never judged me, but they were always there for me,” he said. “They’ve been teaching me the skills to become a productive member of society.”That nonjudgmental approach contrasts sharply with the stigma that many HIV-positive people experience while incarcerated. Though it means forgoing treatment, some keep their status a secret for fear of being shunned or even assaulted if word got out.“I hid my meds, so my cellmate wouldn’t know,” said Fortune Society client Gary Verga, who served 11 years in federal prison for bank robbery. “You can’t let anyone know, or all of a sudden your friends won’t be your friends.”Comprehensive, well-funded discharge-planning programs such as New York City’s exist in a few other jurisdictions in the U.S., but they are far from the norm. There remains uncertainty among health professionals and policymakers as to exactly what approach is most cost-effective in promoting continuity of medical care among newly released people with HIV.Multiple studies addressing the question are in progress, many of them federally funded. Among them is a clinical trial involving 400 people being discharged from incarceration in Texas and North Carolina; one group goes through the existing discharge process, while the others get more intensive follow-up, including reminders of medical appointments sent by text to cellphones they’re provided with.“We’re working on motivation — how to make getting care a higher priority for those who are released,” said the study’s leader, Dr. David Wohl, a professor at the University of North Carolina’s medical school and co-director of HIV services for the state’s corrections department.In general, Wohl said, America’s prisons do a decent job of improving HIV-positive inmates’ health as they take medication and, in most cases, are prevented from substance abuse.“The problem is, they get out. That’s sometimes the most dangerous part,” Wohl said. “There’s a lapse of medical care, re-engaging in drug use … It’s just a shame, because in prison we saw how well they were doing.”Increasingly, corrections officials are recognizing the continuity-of-care problem, Wohl said, because of the high medical costs of dealing with HIV-positive repeat offenders who return to prison much sicker than when they left.While HIV treatment can be a strain on state prison budgets, it can be far more problematic for some local jail operations, especially in rural areas of the South, Wohl said. “One person with HIV can break a local jail’s budget,” he said. “Even if they want to do a good job, they have a hard time doing it.”In Georgia, many rural jails don’t provide HIV medication, according to Dr. Anne Spaulding, an infectious disease expert at Emory University’s school of public health who has been working in correctional health for 17 years. Inmates cut off from treatment can emerge from jail with more resistant strains of HIV because of the disruption, she said.As for Georgia’s state prisons, Spaulding said too few resources are devoted to discharge planning. HIV-positive releasees often have to wait several months to get a medical appointment in the community and can run out of medications before they see a provider, she said.According to the latest federal statistics, from 2010, there were just over 20,000 inmates in state and federal prisons with HIV or AIDS. Those numbers don’t include HIV-positive people held in jails, where turnover is high.With jails included, Spaulding estimates more than 100,000 people infected with HIV are being released from incarceration annually in the U.S. In most jurisdictions, they could be provided with transitional case management services for less than $9,000 per person during the first year after release, according to a cost analysis that Spaulding and several colleagues completed last year.Though HIV medication is expensive, released ex-inmates — with the right advice — usually can obtain financial assistance, notably through the federal Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program that serves people lacking adequate health care coverage of their own.However, several experts said some HIV-positive ex-inmates were missing out on coverage in the more than 20 states that have chosen not to proceed with the expansion of Medicaid allowed under the national health care overhaul. In the other states, Medicaid is now open to single and childless adults who fall under the federal poverty line, a category that includes many ex-inmates.Dr. Ank Nijhawan, a professor at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, is engaged in HIV-related care at the Dallas County Jail — the country’s seventh largest jail with an average daily population of 6,500 inmates. For those going in and out of jail, such care can be a “teachable moment” with lasting value, Nijhawan said.“It’s a unique opportunity to get things under control and show them how good they can feel when they’re on their meds,” she said. “You can make them feel proud of themselves.”Josiah Rich, the Brown University expert, says it’s crucial that policymakers understand the importance of HIV treatment for those in prisons and jails, and those just out of them.“If we can treat enough people, the HIV epidemic will go away,” he said. “To do that, we need to treat the most challenging cases. This is where we find them.”___Follow David Crary on Twitter at http://twitter.com/CraryAPlast_img read more
