Germany’s Free Higher Education Highlights America’s Shame

Germany’s Free Higher Education Highlights America’s Shame | News | Scoop.it

America needs to take a leaf out of the German education system and make tuition affordable, if not free, for its students.

 

The new academic session in Germany saw a remarkable progress -- freeeducation across the board.

“Tuition fees are socially unjust,” says Dorothee Stapelfeldt, senator for science in Hamburg. “They particularly discourage young people who do not have a traditional academic family background from taking up studies. It is a core task of politics to ensure that young women and men can study with a high quality standard free of charge in Germany.”

Brilliant, isn’t it?

Countries like Norway, Sweden, Argentina, France, Greece and Finland are among several nations that offer free higher education to their students.

On the other hand, in the United States of America -- the land of promise -- students are crippled by the weight of staggering tuition fees.

According to the Institute for College Access and Success Project on Student Debt, the average American student borrower will complete university education with $26,600 in debt whereas one in 10 graduates owe more than $40,000.

What’s more, economists predict the cost of attending state colleges will soar to $120,000 by 2015.

With the decline in job opportunities, the task becomes harder and raises the question about whether college is even worth it.

When a nation’s youth have to debate whether to get an education, simply because of the price tag, it is time to act.

Rape OK Says ISIS

Rape OK Says ISIS | News | Scoop.it
An ex-ISIS member said that members of the terror group are promised eternal virgins and are allowed to have sex with captive.


The fighters claim that they want to mass-produce children who will grow up to follow ISIS. Of course, the motivation is suspect. Do the rapist just enjoy terrorizing and having forced sex with captive women? 

“You have these young ISIS fighters carrying machine guns and they . . . want to have sex,” the official said.

Reports say that ISIS commanders, focused on war battles, have ordered the young fighters to stop. But rebels aren’t listening and claim that they’re answering to a higher calling.

The raping fighters say that they’ve been ordered to have sex by a cleric in Saudi Arabia. They claim that each rapist has a goal:  to impregnate multiple women and breed children within their villages and towns. 

ISIS, which has taken over large parts of Iraq and Syria, ultimately wants to become a supreme Islamic state, ruling Muslim communities around the world.

The Big 4 of Tennis Disbanded. And It's a Good Thing

The Big 4 of Tennis Disbanded. And It's a Good Thing | News | Scoop.it
Tennis finally has some grand slam love for the underdogs.

 

It's true that great champions are like crown jewels of a sport, but too much of a good thing is often counterproductive. This is exactly what happened to ATP tennis until the year 2014 came along.

The Big Four of Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic and Andy Murray have collectively won 36 of the last 39 Grand Slams – a mindboggling record that stretches back to 2003. In the preceding 10 years before this one, only once had men's tennis seen a Grand Slam champion other than the aforementioned quartet. That rare moment came in 2009 when an inspired Juan Martin del Potro broke this stranglehold and lifted the US Open title.

 

In the next four years, no one even took as much as a look as the Big Four clinched all of the 16 slams, dominated prize money, media exposure as well as the rankings. Their excellence surely did raise the profile of tennis and turned it into a truly global sport, but it came at the expense of excitement, entertainment and the element of surprise. Every sport needs its underdogs to succeed once in a while, but the adage 'every dog has its day' wasn't applicable to tennis.


The four majors – which used to be hotly anticipated events even until even the mid-2000s – suddenly became dour and a pointless exercise until the semi-finals. It's not like the 90s didn't have its dominant forces in Pete Sampras and Andre Agassi, but they were nothing like the four beasts of this generation.

Fatigue, age, injuries and boredom – nothing slowed them down, until this year. Stanislas Wawrinka began the slam season by besting Nadal in the Australian Open final, which was followed by two first-time semifinalists in the Wimbledon last four.

 

On Monday, the Big Four's demise was further confirmed when two first-time finalists, Marin Cilic and kei nishikori, competed for the US Open title at Flushing Meadows. The towering Croat emerged victorious and leveled the slam count at 2-2 for the year against the Big Four.

 


Shahzaib Elahi's insight:

Federer will be 34 next year, and Nadal's iffy fast court game has begun to get exposed more and more and while their decline by no means states that they are out of the running, it would come in as a welcome distraction. Their decline could also open up more opportunities for Djokovic and Murray. Additionally, it would also allow lesser known players who are really truly good at tennis their time in the limelight.

Hong Kong Protest Images And Video Flood Instagram

Hong Kong Protest Images And Video Flood Instagram | News | Scoop.it
From the look of it, protesters in Hong Kong are not planning to give up any time soon.

 

Protesters have taken to the streets of Hong Kong demanding their promised democratic rights, including the right to choose Hong Kong’s political leaders without interference from Beijing.

It all started with China’s unwanted interference in the elections scheduled for 2017 – when Hong Kong’s voters were supposed to gain the right to elect their own chief executive. However, the Chinese government announced last month that all candidates would need to be pre-approved by a committee friendly to the Chinese Communist Party.

The people of Hong Kong, unwilling to give up their political rights, came together under the name of “Occupy Central” to plan protests and try to reverse Beijing’s decision and were met with police yielding batons and tear gas.

 

The protestors seem to be adamant though, and are holding strong. Not only that, they are sharing photos and videos from the chaos.

Here are some photos and videos are popping up all over social media.

 

Hong Kong became a British colony after the First Opium War (1839–42). On July 1, 1997, Hong Kong was handed over to the People's Republic of China and became its Special Administrative Region under the principle of "one country, two systems."

Shahzaib Elahi's insight:

Hong Kong has an independent judiciary and generally enjoys high degree of autonomy in all matters except foreign relations and military defense.

In 2007, Beijing said it will allow the people of Hong Kong to directly elect their own leader in 2017 and their legislators by 2020. It is the deviation of the Chinese government from that promise that has given rise to the pro-democracy Occupy Central movement.

7 Questions About The Hong Kong Protests You Were Too Embarrassed To Ask

7 Questions About The Hong Kong Protests You Were Too Embarrassed To Ask | News | Scoop.it
September 29, 2014: How much do you know about the current situation in Hong Kong?
Shahzaib Elahi's insight:

September 29, 2014: How much do you know about the current situation in Hong Kong?

Tens of thousands of activists occupied the streets of Hong Kong last week in what is now being termed the “longest series of political protests” since the 1997 British handover to the Chinese government.

What's happening in Hong Kong right now is monumental, but it can become a little confusing with the news being updated nearly every hour of the day.

Here’s a simplified version of the complex situation.

 

Why are people protesting?

Hong Kong's citizens are protesting to keep their promised democratic rights, which they fear, rightfully so, could be taken away by the central Chinese government in Beijing.

 

Wait... isn’t Hong Kong like a different country from China?

Not exactly.

Officially known as Hong Kong Special Administrative Region of the People's Republic of China, it is a self-governing region on the southern coast of China.

After spending over 150 years under British rule, Hong Kong had prospered into an important center of international commerce and banking for most of the 20th century. Despite being under colonial rule, Hong Kong enjoyed considerable political freedom and democracy compared to the rest of China. 

In 1984, Britain and China signed a joint declaration, prompting Hong Kong's transfer to China in 1997.

 

What went wrong then?

Hong Kong was handed over to Chinese rule under the "one country, two systems" formula – a deal that let Hong Kong keep its special rights and the autonomy it inherited from the British rule.

In 2007, Beijing said it will allow the people of Hong Kong to directly elect their own leader in 2017 and their legislators by 2020.

However, in August 2014 China's top legislative committee ruled that voters will only have a choice from a list of two or three candidates selected by a nominating committee, which would consist of largely pro-Beijing officials.

The condition that any candidate would have to secure the support of “more than 50 percent” of the committee before running in the election prompted fears that China would try to influence power in Hong Kong.

Due to this fear, a group of protesters started Occupy Central, a pro-democracy campaign led by academic Benny Tai in the first half of this year.

An unofficial referendum held under this new movement in June showed a large majority of citizens demanded a right to nominate a candidate for Hong Kong’s chief executive, without the interference of the Chinese government.

Subsequently, demonstrations broke out.

 

Is it all about democracy then?

Yes, but it’s also about inequality.

Apparently, Hong Kong is becoming increasingly expensive for its own citizens, who want a government that is interested in addressing the needs of middle-class families and not just keen on business ventures. According to a Time magazinearticle:

“The entry price to buy a home is beyond the means of many citizens, who equally feel that government policies are rigged to favor the elite, especially wealthy property developers.”

 

OK. But why are so many students involved?

For a developed society, Hong Kong has one of the widest wealth and income gap in the world – a trend that yielded discontent, especially among the young people, including a large number of students, who want jobs and more opportunities.

They are fighting for universal suffrage – meaning every citizen above the age of 18 is allowed to vote – and against the “influx of free-spending mainland Chinese visitors to the city who buy up everything from apartments to baby milk formula.”

 

So, is everyone in Hong Kong cool with the protests?

No.

There are pro-Beijing groups, such as Silent Majority for Hong Kong and Caring Hong Kong Power who argue that opposition to Chinese rule can damage the region’s trade and industry.

Predictably, business leaders also think that cutting off ties with China can hinder progress and challenge economic stability.

 

Keeping the Tiananmen Square incident into consideration, how has China responded so far?

On June 3 and June 4, 1989, Chinese leaders ordered troops to open fire on demonstrators and sent in tanks to crush a student-led campaign movement, killing hundreds.

Although many young people living in China are kept in the dark about the incident, by means of heavy censorship laws, Hong Kong is well-aware of the incident.

Pro-democracy protesters draw inspiration from the Tiananmen massacre and want to avoid similar fate at the hands of the Chinese government, which has not officially responded to the growing wave of demonstrations so far.

The Hong Kong riot police, on the other hand, have taken action against protesters, in clashes that saw the “city’s first use of tear gas in years” and the presence of officers with long-barreled guns, inciting even more public fury.

In Japan, Urban Research Experiments with Virtual Changing Booths | Pricing Mart

In Japan, Urban Research Experiments with Virtual Changing Booths | Pricing Mart | News | Scoop.it

Japan has experimented with virtual changing rooms in the past, but the idea did not prove very successful. However, fashion retailer Urban Research has attempted to re-launch the idea with an experimental set up in Tokyo.
 
This set up consists of a booth that is barely seven square meters in area, in which customers can virtually try on clothes by observing themselves on a 60 inch screen, and purchase the items they are interested in. The booth carries no stock; however customers can select clothing options available from a menu, virtually try them on, and even share their photos on their social networks.
 
Virtual changing booths aim to revolutionize the retail industry by removing resistance to trying on clothes in a changing room. This behavior is typically observed among men; trendy clothing on the shelf often remains unsold because men are hesitant to take off their clothes in an unfamiliar changing room, or they do not wish to spend more time than is necessary shopping. It will also allow both men and women to reduce their shopping time by quickly finding out matching or similar items to the clothes that they are trying on. They can simply try on one item, and then whizz through similar clothes in a very short amount of time.

Sexism In Capitol Hill Brought To Light Once Again

Sexism In Capitol Hill Brought To Light Once Again | News | Scoop.it
A controversy about sexism on Capitol Hill is really no controversy at all. It is routine.
Shahzaib Elahi's insight:

CNN Chief Congressional Correspondent Dana Bash has admitted to being on the receiving end of sexist comments from male senators. She is by no means alone on this one. The topic came up while she was on air discussing Senator Kirsten Gillibrand’s recent disclosure that she’s received comments from male colleagues calling her “chubby” and “porky.” She even recalled one of them telling her, “You know, Kirsten, you’re even pretty when you’re fat.”

In her upcoming book “Off The Sidelines” Gillibrand wrote how one male colleague squeezed her waist and implored: “Don’t lose too much weight now, I like my girls chubby,” after she lost weight following a pregnancy.

NBC’s Andrea Mitchell also recently admitted there are some male senators she wouldn’t want to be in an elevator with.

Even though Senator Gillibrand attributed the sexism to generational differences saying it was mostly the older generation of the senators who made such comments; it is indicative of the general atmosphere surrounding women on Capitol Hill.

Tweets from Emergency Physicians about Tricks of the Trade

Tweets from Emergency Physicians about Tricks of the Trade | News | Scoop.it

If you enter #EMTOT (Emergency Medicine Tricks of the Trade) into a Twitter search you’ll certainly find some clever ideas. But this hashtag isn’t used as often as it could be. That doesn’t mean there aren’t a slew of tweets that fit the category. Here are five recent posts that should have been tagged #EMTOT, but weren’t.

1 Canadian EM physician Ken Milne, MD (@thesgem), kicks things off with one of my personal favorite tricks. “…How about cranking tunes to distract peds during procedures? http://thesgem.com/2014/06/sgem78-sunny-days-pediatric-pain-control/ #FOAMed #MedEd.” The link goes to the blog post associated with Dr. Milne’s latest episode of his increasingly popular podcast, The Skeptics Guide to Emergency Medicine (tagline: “Meet ‘em, greet ‘em, treat ‘em, street ‘em”). Letting kids listen to music is not just being a nice doctor—it is evidence-based! Dr. Milne and his guest Anthony Crocco, MD, division head and medical director of pediatric emergency medicine at McMaster University in Hamilton, Ontario, discuss the 2013 JAMA Pediatrics paper “Music to reduce pain and distress in the pediatric emergency department. A randomized clinical trial.”1 They conclude that music can help control pain in children requiring painful procedures. The data aren’t as overwhelming as one might hope, but the study does support the practice. If nothing else, EM providers should have a low threshold to embrace inexpensive, safe, and patient-centered modalities whenever possible. Ideas like this might save the need for yet another needle.

2 On the other hand, sometimes another needle is necessary. But maximal pain is not. This is why small-bore “pigtail” chest tube catheters are beginning to replace conventional chest tubes for stable pneumothoraces, small hemothoraces, and pleural effusions. Mayo Clinic EM physician Daniel Cabrera, MD (@cabreraERDR), relays a short, free, and crystal-clear video (that’s a #FOAMed trifecta) produced by the department of emergency medicine at the University of Ottawa: “How to place a chest pigtail catheter, by @emergmedottawa Pig Tailhttp://youtu.be/nrxuZwFpigI.”; This video is a reminder that, for some procedures, video-learning is an indispensable tool.

Letting kids listen to music is not just being a nice doctor—it is evidence-based! Ideas like this might save the need for yet another needle.

3 Our next trick-of-the-trade tweet comes from Australian flight and retrieval medicine guru Minh Le Cong, MBBS (@rfdsdoc). This trick is not ready for prime-time use in the ED setting, but worth sharing (disclaimer: the research came from my own institution). “Mount Sinai psychiatrists prove feasibility and safety of intranasal ketamine as rapid antidepressant. http://www.mountsinai.org/about-us/newsroom/press-releases/intranasal-ketamine-confers-rapid-antidepressant-effect-in-depression.”; In the future, this therapy might be an effective stopgap for psychiatric patients not requiring emergent admission or psychiatric consult, but who would benefit from short term help until connecting with their outpatient provider.

4 On a completely different note, there is always room for improvement in the way we perform CPR. No amount of training prepares providers for the adrenaline of a real code. Despite some effort, I can’t seem to get my colleagues to slow down their CPR compressions to the desired rate of 104 compressions per minute. In a recent simulation study I ran, I noticed that out of 30 chest compression providers, not a single one administered compressions too slowly. Most were too fast, some by a substantial margin. In real life, many of us have tried addressing this by playing a metronome during CPR. Unfortunately, the effect seems ephemeral and minimal. The problem stems, I believe, from people not knowing that “hard and fast” compressions can actually be too fast. But @TakeHeartAust (a nonprofit Australian organization aiming to improve CPR survival rates) has an idea. Don’t just tell your colleagues and students what to do, but also tell them why. Their short tweet sums it up elegantly: “CPR – when you push down say “BRAIN”, when you release say “HEART” [because] that’s how/when YOU are supplying them with blood!” Systole-diastole. Systole-diastole. I’ve already noticed that when a provider knows why the rate of compressions matters, they tend to better adhere the recommended rate.

5 Rounding out the list is the tweet that inspired this month’s column. Casey Parker, MBBS (@broomedocs) is a general practitioner and hospital district medical officer in Broome, Australia and the creator of the excellent broomedocs.com emergency medicine blog. Dr. Parker challenges us to be creative and resourceful by presenting a case scenario, while imposing several interesting restrictions. It is one thing to solve a case and another to do so with your hands tied behind your back. Dr. Parker asks us to diagnose and treat a complicated patient without formal radiology or lab tests, other than point-of-care blood gas results. I refer to this type of exercise as “post-apocalypse medicine,” but Dr. Parker has a nicer name for it. “Midnight MacGyver Medicinehttp://broomedocs.com/2014/06/clinical-case-103-midnight-macgyver-medicine/…Some great responses from the smart #FOAMed faculty.” I heartily agree. Many impressive responses were posted in the blog’s comment section, coming from top EM minds all over the world, a great example of asking EM providers to think outside of the box and a yeoman display of the power of social media to generate high-level discussion and the sharing of ideas.
