tragedies of MH370, MH17 deeply impact on Malaysia, world

KUALA LUMPUR, Dec. 21 (Xinhua) -- 2014, as Malaysian Prime Minister Najib Razak put it, has been "a tragic year" for Malaysia with the great pain infected by the twin tragedies of Malaysia Airlines (MAS) flights MH370 and MH17. Despite the unprecedented efforts by 26 countries in search of the aircraft, MH370 is still unaccounted for since its mysterious disappearance on a trip from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing on March 8. Just four months later, another MAS flight MH17, was shot down in eastern Ukraine on July 17, claiming the lives of all the 298 passengers on board. With the whereabouts of MH370 remain unknown and the criminals behind the downing of MH17 still at large, the two disasters left Malaysians not only astonished, deeply suspicious and utterly sad, its effect also spilled over into the world's political, economic and aviation spheres. GlOBAL SOLIDARITY The two unexpected disasters saw the world come together in an unprecedented act of global solidarity when 26 countries all over the world involved themselves in the search and rescue operations for the missing MH370 airplane and dealing with the aftermath of the MH17 crash. As 154 people of the 239 passengers and crew on board MH370 were Chinese, there were concerns that the tragedy might cast a cloud over the friendly relations between China and Malaysia. However, as a judgment by former Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad in an interview with Xinhua went, China-Malaysia ties have not been affected by the incid...  

Exclusive: Inside the national home invasion ring — and how authorities ...

HOUSTON — It was an operation by turns sophisticated and brutish, employing financial databases, demographic data, pinpoint targets, the element of surprise and, not least, violence and intimidation, authorities say. Its disparate members included a hulking Colombian national, an aspiring teenage model with a steady job and a troubled young man who relatives said had served his country in the U.S. Army. Presiding over it all, authorities said, was a 39-year-old mother of five whom investigators likened to a modern-day Fagin, the grizzled vagabond who leads a band of street-wise pickpockets in the classic tale “Oliver Twist.” For the past five months, and perhaps longer, the Houston-based crew has terrorized Asian and Asian-Indian communities across the eastern half of the United States, carrying out home-invasion robberies in which victims were bound with duct tape and, in some cases, beaten or pistol-whipped, authorities said. The group — charged last week with five attacks in New Jersey during October and November — has now been linked to additional home invasions in Michigan, Georgia and Texas, police in those states said. Detectives in New York say the same suspects might be responsible for a Long Island home invasion on Halloween. Through interviews with law enforcement officials and with family members and friends of the suspects, NJ Advance Media has developed the clearest portrait yet of the defendants, who face decades behind bars ...

Access to adequate health care difficult for some in Iowa

Isaiah Newsome likes to play sports and hang out with friends, like any 17-year-old. But most of the time these activities are cut short as his body, stricken with sickle cell anemia since birth, fills with pain."It just randomly happens," Newsome of Des Moines, said. "There's no really preventing it or seeing it coming."Getting health insurance to cover his health care adequately all of these years has not been easy but at least he has has had insurance the past year. Other African American families in Iowa with low incomes do not, adding to difficulties they face getting health care.A University of Iowa Public Policy Center study in December 2013 put the problem into perspective, showing that African American, and Latino Iowans as well, do not have the same access to adequate health care that Asian and white Iowans have.The Public Policy Center went on to say in its report, which used data from a child and family health survey conducted in fall 2010 and spring 2011, that Iowa’s African Americans and Latinos are more likely to need medical care, even though they are more unlikely than Asian or white Iowans to receive it.The disparities are a result of varying factors, the Public Policy Center report said, including a lower quality of care in general, higher than normal unmet need for care, poor diets, a higher likelihood to seek care from a hospital emergency room, and fewer safe and supportive neighborhoods. Social aspects, including someone’s poverty level, ...

Winter health woes: How to protect your body and mind

Cold and overexertion can contribute to winter heart attacks. Here, a man removes snow from his car in Catonsville, Md.(Photo: Jeffrey F. Bill, AP)Welcome to winter, a season notoriously hard on bodies and minds. Ailments from heart attacks to flu are more common; more people complain of sore joints and itchy skin; and many suffer from seasonal depression.Here's what to watch for and how to protect yourself in these darkest days of the year.Heart troubleMore people die of heart attacks, strokes and heart failure in winter than in other seasons, research shows. One theory is that the drop in temperatures, even in milder areas, causes blood vessels to constrict. Another is that people are less active in winter — and then when they are active outside, they may overexert themselves in the cold. That's why shoveling snow can be "a perfect storm for heart attack and stroke to occur," says Rani Whitfield, a family practitioner in Baton Rouge, La., and an American Heart Association spokesman.A bout of flu can also strain the heart, and misuse of over-the-counter cold and flu medications can raise blood pressure, he says.Here's what to do: Get a flu shot, and if you have heart disease, keep taking your prescribed medicine and tracking your blood pressure. If you have symptoms of a possible heart attack or stroke, call 911, Whitfield says. "Your life is the best present you can give your loved ones."Seasonal depressionOne way to fight winter blues: Take a walk outside. But if yo...  

Werder Bremen agree Levin Oztunali loan with Bayer Leverkusen

The teenage midfielder moves to the Weserstadion after struggling to break into Roger Schmidt's first team. Having only made six league appearances this season, two of them starts, the 18-year-old has been sent out on loan to gain more first team experience. "Levin's qualities are exceptional," said Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller. "What Levin needs now is match practice at the highest level. "Bremen can offer him more of this than we currently can in Leverkusen, where the competition is much greater in his position." For Viktor Skpinik's side the signing could provide a much-needed boost after the mid-season break, with the club languishing in 16th position after 17 matches. Bremen sporting director Thomas Gauge is looking forward to seeing the youngster in action, and says the loan move benefits all parties. "With Levin we have got one of the most sought-after talent in the Bundesliga," he said. "I am sure that this change is profitable for all parties. "We gain an added option with great quality and Levin has a great chance to gain match practice. "It is exactly the type of transfer that will help us." ...
