In Career Game, Chuba Hubbard is the Bell Cow OSU Needs

first_imgHe filled it up all night and churned out tough run after tough run, but he punctuated his latest career performance with a 33-yard nail hammered into the Golden Hurricane’s coffin with just two minutes remaining.He also had a 34-yard run called back because of an offensive 12 men on the field penalty. face palm emojiChuba is putting up big numbers early, and gaining a little more than momentum as he enters Big 12 play.Oklahoma St RB Chuba Hubbard a Heisman dark horse. Already with 500+ rushing yards/7 TDs. Statement opportunity at Texas next weekend— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) September 14, 2019The actual count is 521 yards and 66 carries in three games (nearly half of his total carries in 13 games last year). That’s a hair under 8 yards per carry as well as seven rushing touchdowns. It’s still very early, but a little Heisman buzz is not unwarranted for the Cowboys’ new bell-cow back.

It was an ugly outing for just about every phase of OSU football on Saturday, at least at one time or another — except one.Spencer Sanders and the Cowboys passing game suffered through its first stinker of his young career. Sanders singlehandedly lost the turnover battle 2-0. Tylan Wallace was electric when he was able to avoid Tulsa’s apparent (and fairly successful) PI-defensive strategy.What’s worse, this was the lowest passing yardage total (169 yards, one TD, one INT) by any Oklahoma State team since Daxx Garman went for 158, one TD and one pick, and barely survived the 2014 Texas game.The defense came up with some big stops in the second half, but was rather welcoming to Tulsa early, allowing 171 yards, six yards per play and 14 points in the second quarter to allow the Golden Hurricane to take a 21-20 halftime lead. It’s Tulsa, maybe I give Jim Knowles’ crew a B-.But OSU’s ground game, led by Chuba Hubbard, was the Cowboys offense. He kept them afloat early and pushed them to victory late.Hubbard turned in a career-high of 256 yards on 32 carries (8 yards per), both of which topped a career mark set two weeks ago in Corvallis. His three rushing scores tied a career best for the second time.Chuba was unstoppable in Tulsa and has been so far this season, anytime it has counted.Mike Gundy said he pulled Chuba against McNeese because he fumbled his second carry of the game (though he stayed in for six more and a whole other quarter). But regardless of whether he sat because it was McNeese or because of ball security, the Cowboys didn’t need him to beat an FCS opponent.They did need him against Tulsa, and he delivered big.The first play from scrimmage was a handoff to the world-class speedster, and he took it 75 yards to the house.Shortly after that he added a 30-yard score, pushing OSU to a 14-0 lead and padding the numbers on an all-time opening quarter.last_img read more

He has always got forward in that position and scored goals.“Ole has helped him 100%. He has given him the confidence and licence to be free, to play his game and do what we know he can.”Meanwhile, Pogba told Sky Sports: “Everyone is enjoying themselves. We are coming back, and there is still a long way to go, but to finish the year like that is beautiful.“We are Manchester United and we need to be at the top of the league.”But there is an obligation at Old Trafford to play beautiful football as well as winning, according to Solskjaer. “We have been at home two games now and the crowd, we have to entertain them,” he explained.Newcastle, though, represent dangerous opponents, having beaten United 1-0 at St James’ Park last season.Rafael Benitez’s side have lost only one of their last four Premier League matches, though that was a heavy 4-0 loss at Liverpool on Boxing Day. With United in rampant form, they will be concerned about slipping to another such loss.

Cambodia Gets Loan for Sihanoukville Port Expansion

first_imgzoom The Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) has signed a loan agreement to provide up to CNY 23.5 billion (USD 3.5 billion) for the development of Sihanoukville Port New Container Terminal in Cambodia.Under the agreement signed on August 7, the Japanese ODA loan would be used to for the project to develop a new container terminal and improve the cargo handling capacity at the port with the objectives of improving the logistics environment in Cambodia and promoting trade.The loan funds will be allocated to container terminal and access road development, public works relating to marine routes and mooring basin dredging, the procurement of cargo-handling equipment, and consulting services.With the project, Sihanoukville Port’s container cargo handling capacity would be increased by 450,000 TEUs to more than one and a half times the current capacity. The project will enable the only deep-sea port in Cambodia to accommodate larger sized vessels.Due to its strategic location on the Southern Economic Corridor, which has been a focus of support from Japan, Sihanoukville Port is expected to become a logistics transfer hub for ASEAN overall, according to JICA.last_img read more

Role of women in city government highlighted at mayors conference in Thailand

“Nowhere in the region are women equally represented in local government,” said Kim Hak-Su, Executive Secretary of the UN Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (ESCAP), at the opening of the first-ever regional Summit of Women Mayors and Councillors, being held from 19 to 22 June in Phitsanulok, Thailand.Calling the conference “the beginning of vital initiatives to significantly increase the number of women in local government,” Mr. Hak-Su pledged that ESCAP would take the lead in ensuring concrete follow-up to the forum’s decisions.Women in decision-making government positions provide “transformative leadership” by redefining political priorities, placing new items on the agenda and providing new perspectives on mainstream issues, according to ESCAP. In recognition of their community service and their role in breaking barriers against the participation and representation of women in local government, Mr. Kim presented awards to seven female mayors and councillors from China, India, Indonesia, New Zealand, Pakistan, the Philippines and Thailand.More than 250 participants from 24 countries and territories are attending the conference, which is being organized by ESCAP, other UN bodies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and research and training institutions. read more

Violence ebbs in Liberia thousands huddle for safety inside stadium UN

According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), the number of internally displaced persons (IDPs) staying at the national stadium in Monrovia is now estimated to be as high as 30,000.Although local agencies are working to provide high-protein biscuits, shelter materials and water and sanitation facilities, a new danger may be emerging as cases of measles and diarrhoea are now being reported among the desperate population at the sports complex as well as in the other spontaneous IDP camps that dot the city. OCHA said that health agencies are concerned that the situation could result in epidemics if the war continues and these areas become inaccessible.Since last week, tens of thousands of people have been pouring into central Monrovia to flee the fighting on the outskirts of the city between government troops and the country’s main rebel group, the Liberians United for Reconciliation and Democracy (LURD). Among them were about 115,000 people living in the IDP camps that ringed the city.Although fighting appeared to have died down Wednesday morning after sporadic shooting in the western and eastern suburbs, it remains extremely difficult for humanitarian workers to operate in Monrovia, as personnel have been threatened and vehicles have been looted, OCHA reported. Yesterday, the UN refugee agency evacuated its remaining international staff from the Liberian capital.As widespread insecurity has stymied humanitarian efforts to deliver relief goods and supplies, fear and panic among the frightened population has driven up the cost of basic commodities. OCHA reported that prices of rice and petrol continue to skyrocket in one of the world’s poorest countries. Hundreds of people queued in front of Western Union Offices today to collect money sent to them by relatives and friends abroad. read more

Reduced UN force in TimorLeste recommended for another year

United Nations peacekeepers have played a crucial role in the extraordinary political progress made by newly independent, post-conflict Timor-Leste, and a reduced force of nearly 700 troops should remain for another year to allow the country to become self-sufficient, Secretary-General Kofi Annan says in a new report to the Security Council.Hailing the success achieved by the UN Mission of Support in East Timor (UNMISET), established in May 2002, Mr. Annan says, “Where so much has been achieved so quickly, there is good reason to believe that a further joint effort by the leadership of Timor-Leste and the international community will enable the Timorese people to reach the objective of a truly self-sufficient state that they have pursued with such determination.”He recommends that UNMISET provide for the island nation 58 civilian experts to public administration and the judiciary, especially for serious crimes. The Mission should also retain 310 formed military and 157 civilian police advisers and deploy an international response unit of 125 gendarmes, as well as 42 military liaison officers.Future political development and social progress are linked to economic prospects, Mr. Annan says.”Progress towards agreement between Australia and Timor-Leste for development of the mineral resources in the Timor Sea, in a mutually beneficial manner, through full commitment of the leadership of the countries involved, would make an essential contribution in this regard,” he says.At the same time, the vision of cooperation shown by the political leadership of Timor-Leste and Indonesia, the country from which it gained independence, must be evidenced by completing land border demarcation, resolving the refugee problem and allowing the requirements of people on either side of the border to be met in a peaceful and orderly manner, he says. read more

At Security Council Ban and UN special envoy outline way forward on

“On March 28, I instructed my Special Envoy for Syria, Mr. Staffan de Mistura, to intensify efforts…to find a political settlement to the conflict,” reminded Mr. Ban, who specifically asked him to work to “operationalize the Geneva Communiqué.”Laying out key steps in a process to end the violence, Geneva Communiqué, adopted in 2012 by the first international conference on the issue and later endorsed by the Security Council, calls, among others, for the establishment of a transitional governing body, with full executive powers and made up by members of the present Government and the opposition and other groups, as part of agreed principles and guidelines for a Syrian-led political transition.After extensive consultations, Mr. de Mistura came up with what the Secretary-General called a “viable alternative,” which the Special Envoy presented himself this morning to the 15 Council members, a day after the UN Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs, Stephen O’Brien, addressed the 15-member body, painting a grim picture of the situation on the ground in Syria.“What I am today proposing is to deepen the Geneva consultations format. I now intend to invite Syrians to parallel thematic discussions through intra-Syrian working groups addressing the key aspects of the Geneva Communiqué,” safety and protection for all; political and constitutional Issues; military and security issues; public institutions; and reconstruction and development.These working groups will start generating movement towards a “Syrian-owned framework document” on the implementation of the Geneva Communiqué, explained Mr. de Mistura, convinced that this effort should be led by a “Steering committee” composed of Syrians from these thematic groups and possibly elsewhere.“The framework document will also provide for a transitional governing body, procedures for a national dialogue, the constitution drafting process and transitional justice issues,” continued the Special Envoy.In that regard, he stressed, the support of the Security Council will be “critical” to convince all Syrian and regional players to get involved.“Syria is the world’s largest humanitarian crisis,” stated the Secretary General. “At least a quarter-million Syrians have been killed. Almost half the country’s people – 12 million men, women and children – have been forced to flee their homes. In a massive cross-border exodus, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan and Iraq are hosting an ever growing number of refugees, and increasing numbers of Syrians making desperate flights across the Mediterranean in so-called ‘death boats.’”Atrocious crimes are now almost an hourly occurrence, fed by a lack of accountability for the major human rights violations committed over the past four years and through decades of repression, he went on to say. The Syrian people have been exposed to chemical weapons and to new, indiscriminate killing devices such as barrel bombs and hell cannons, Mr. Ban deplored, as much as the fact that the conflict has given rise to terrorist groups such as Da’esh (also known as the Islamic State in Iraq and the Levant, or ISIL) and Al Nusra Front, and fuelled sectarianism and radicalization.The Security Council unanimously endorsed the Geneva Communiqué, which remains the only internationally agreed basis for a political settlement to the Syrian conflict, he emphasized. “[Mr. de Mistura]’s consultations made clear that the major stumbling block in the political process remains the issue of forming a Transitional Governing Body, with full executive powers that can create a suitable environment and safety for all during the transition,” the UN chief acknowledged.The Secretary General said he stands ready to convene a “high-level international conference” to endorse any recommendations or agreement that the Syrian-led political process his Special Envoy intends to initiate may reach, including on the issue of the Transitional Governing Body. read more

Football JT Barrett wants one team to believe in him

Ohio State quarterback J.T. Barrett is honored on the field for Senior Day. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorINDIANAPOLIS — For four years, J.T. Barrett was the man. The Ohio State football team followed the quarterback everywhere he went and the city hung on his every word.Now as he prepares to take a shot in the NFL, everything has flipped. A crop of 15 to 20 reporters circled around the podium on which Barrett spoke, but the attention paled in comparison to the media circus three podiums away encapsulating former USC quarterback Sam Darnold, the player who led the team which Barrett beat in his final collegiate game.When asked whether if it felt weird to not be the center of attention, he took a long look over his right shoulder at the throng of journalists surrounding Darnold, then simply said, “Nah, I’m good.”He no longer must worry about the spotlight he could never seem to avoid at Ohio State.Despite setting the all-time Big Ten records for total offensive yards (12,697) and touchdown passes (104), holding 34 school records and becoming the first three-time team captain in program history, Barrett might not have a spot in the NFL. Teams have plenty of questions about his arm strength, pocket presence and ability to play in a professional offensive system.But Barrett said he does not pay much attention to draft experts or their projections. Instead, he is focused on finding a team willing to prove its belief in the quarterback by selecting him in the NFL draft.“I feel like if you’re going in the first round or you’re going in the seventh round, I think at the end of the day, that’s what you want,” Barrett said Friday at the NFL combine. “So you need one opportunity to showcase who you are as a football player and as a person. Like I said, I just need one opportunity, one team to believe in me and go show them who I am.”Given Barrett’s experience as a four-year starter, there should not be many questions about his strengths and weaknesses. Scouts and general managers can watch 44 starts and an Ohio State-record 38 wins.In those victories, Barrett often found success behind center when utilizing his vision and power in the run game, and he hopes to translate that pocket mobility to the NFL.“Strengths are being able to extend the plays, have the ability to run the ball, not just standing in the pocket like a light post,” Barrett said. “I’m going to move around, be able to make throws on the run. Elevate the game of the people around me.”Some have questioned whether he will switch positions at the professional level. Barrett said no team has asked him to play another position, saying “it’s all been about quarterback.”Instead, he has been working at quarterback in Orlando, Florida, at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex to prepare for the combine and the draft. Barrett has worked heavily to increase his footwork and timing.“When you look at great you look at great throws, you first starting off with footwork,” he said. “You talk about somebody’s arm, but at first, you have to have your feet in place to make those throws, so I’m working on that constantly.”Barrett will be the latest in a long line of former Ohio State quarterbacks — including recent  Buckeye signal-callers Cardale Jones, Braxton Miller and Troy Smith — to head to the NFL. He said he talks to Jones every couple days and saw Miller once in Columbus. Barrett said the NFL veterans told him to be himself and to enjoy the process rather than let it stress him out. That becomes key if Barrett slides further than he anticipates.Less stress comes with being a low-round pick. But with that comes a greater doubt.This year, though, Barrett dealt with hordes of skeptics who favored Dwayne Haskins replacing him. He has faced these questions many times before. They don’t bother him.“How much faith do I have in myself? Uh, I have have some confidence,” Barrett said with a smile. “I think, I don’t know, I’m not the type to voice it. I want to showcase it on the field. So with that, that’s what I plan to do. I think I did a good job preparing and trying to be ready for this moment. I have confidence in myself.”Barrett’s physical tools might never match those of the quarterback who he peeked at over his right shoulder, but that confidence and his leadership have a chance to place him on an NFL 53-man roster. read more

Video emerges of son of assassinated Kims halfbrother

first_imgGraphic on the children of former North Korean leader Kim Jong-Il. AFPA video of a man describing himself as the son of assassinated North Korean exile Kim Jong-Nam emerged Wednesday, apparently the first time a family member has spoken about the killing.South Korea’s intelligence agency confirmed the individual on the video — uploaded to the YouTube page of a previously unknown group calling itself Cheollima Civil Defense (CCD) — is Kim Han-Sol.His father was murdered at Malaysia’s main airport last month by two women using the banned VX nerve agent, with Pyongyang widely blamed for the assassination.”The man is indeed Kim Han-Sol,” a spokesman for the National Intelligence Service told AFP.The spokesman declined to give further details, including Kim’s current whereabouts or any information about CCD.In the video, the man says in English: “My name is Kim Han-Sol, from North Korea, part of the Kim family.”My father has been killed a few days ago. I’m currently with my mother and my sister. We are very grateful to…” he says, before the audio cuts off and his mouth movements are blacked out.He shows his North Korean diplomatic passport as evidence of his identity but the page that shows his particulars is digitally covered.The 40-second video wraps up with him saying: “We hope this gets better soon.”There was no indication where or precisely when the video was made.Han-Sol, 21, is believed to have graduated from Sciences Po university in Paris and had been living in exile with his parents in the Chinese territory of Macau before he disappeared with his mother and sister following his father’s death.Because of his bloodline, Han-Sol could be seen as a rival figurehead in a state ruled by his uncle Kim Jong-Un and roiled by bloody purges.On its website — registered only on Saturday — CCD said that it was protecting Kim Jong-Nam’s family.”Cheollima Civil Defense responded last month to an emergency request by survivors of the family of Kim Jong-Nam for extraction and protection. The three family members were met quickly and relocated to safety,” it said, also in English.”We have in the past addressed other urgent needs for protection,” it asserted. “This will be the first and last statement on this particular matter, and the present whereabouts of this family will not be addressed.”The group also thanked countries “for the emergency humanitarian assistance afforded to us in protecting this family” including the Netherlands, China and the United States, plus an unspecified fourth government.last_img read more

800yrold Crusader Body Desecrated by Vandals in an Irish Church Vault

first_imgPolice are searching for the missing head of an 800-year-old Crusader entombed in a Dublin church. Vandals reportedly broke into the church, decapitated the Crusader’s mummified remains, and also disturbed the body of a 400-year-old nun, turning her head the wrong way. A large amount of damage was caused to the vault at St. Michan’s Church in the center of Dublin. There are also concerns the Crusader’s remains will disintegrate in the open air as the conditions in the crypt keep them preserved.Archdeacon David Pierpoint told the BBC that the crusader’s head had been “severed from his body and taken away.” The discovery was apparently made as a tour guide was preparing to open the church for visitors on February 25, 2019.The ‘crusader’ mummy, St. Michan’s Church, Dublin“Archdeacon Pierpoint said he was upset and disappointed that the church had been targeted again by vandals,” according to the BBC. The crypt of St. Michan’s was vandalized in 1996.“I am shocked that someone would target this ancient burial place and desecrate the remains of those lying within it,” Diarmuid Martin, the Archbishop of Dublin, said in a statement. “Not only have these individuals desecrated the sacred crypt but they have destroyed these historic mummies which have been preserved in St. Michan’s for hundreds of years.”All tours of the site have been canceled. Last year about 27,000 people visited the church.Tower of St Michan’s Church, DublinIn a statement, the Church of Ireland said the crypt had been badly damaged and several of the mummies, including the remains of the nun, had been desecrated in the incident.Related Video: Mummified Cats, Beetles Discovered in Ancient Egyptian TombsArchdeacon Pierpoint said a solid steel internal gate was also taken but the immediate concern was securing the vaults.

The crypt’s dry air and limestone walls have kept the bodies’ desiccated skin intact, while their wooden coffins crumbled. “Some of the coffin lids have caved in completely, while others have fractured enough to reveal an arm or leg,” wrote Slate in a recent story. “A thick layer of dust covers each body.”The body of the Crusader has been a bit of a question mark for some.St Michan’s churchyard. Photo by Jennifer Boyer CC BY 2.0“At the back, placed horizontally, is the six-foot-six body of a man who apparently fought in the Crusades,” continued the Slate story. “Though how he managed to die during the Middle Ages and end up mummified in a Dublin crypt built in 1685 is a great mystery.”Read another story from us: Hidden Crusader-Era Gold Coins Discovered in Historic Port City of CaesareaHowever, the mystery may be explained by the fact that the first Christian chapel on this site dates from the 11th century. The larger church was built much later.As for the Crusades, they stretched over centuries, with the beginning set at 1095 and continuing sporadically until the late 15th century.Nancy Bilyeau, a former staff editor at Entertainment Weekly, Rolling Stone, and InStyle, has written a trilogy of historical thrillers for Touchstone Books.

To legally market a device, manufacturers must submit a premarket notification, or 510(k), demonstrating that the new or modified product is substantially equivalent to another legally marketed medical device. Manufacturers often make changes or modifications to a device after FDA clearance such as incorporating new technology or upgrading certain aspects of the device. Many changes do not require a 510(k) submission. But when the changes could significantly affect the product’s safety or effectiveness or constitute a major change to the intended use of the device, another 510(k) must be submitted.“We are making the regulatory process for medical devices less challenging by better describing our expectations,” said Jeffrey Shuren, M.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health. “In particular, manufacturers can continue to make innovative improvements to their devices and better plan for any updated submissions. This saves time and money.”The draft guidance clarifies the kinds of changes that trigger the need for a new submission, such as specific kinds of labeling changes, changes to the technology used in the device, changes in performance specifications, manufacturing changes, and changes in the materials used in the manufacture of the device. This draft guidance is one of 25 action items listed in the FDA’s Plan of Action for Implementation of 510(k) and Science Recommendations launched in 2011 to enhance predictability, consistency, and transparency of the FDA’s premarket review programs. For more information: www.fda.gov FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Radiation Therapy | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: Use of Radiotherapy to Noninvasively Ablate Ventricular Tachycardia Pierre Qian, MBBS, read morelast_img read more

Commerzbank loses 123M in Q1 due to restructuring

first_img“We were able to increase our operating profit in the first quarter despite a very challenging environment with extremely low interest rates, and have made further considerable progress in the consistent reduction of our non-strategic activities,” CEO Blessing said in a statement. He said the company’s focus this year was on implementing its turnaround strategy and that “the positive effects from this should increasingly become visible from the coming year onwards.”(Copyright 2013 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.) Top Stories Construction begins on Chandler hospital expansion project Commerzbank has been on a long road to recovery since it was bailed out in 2009 by the German government, which still owns 25 percent. The job cuts stem from a program launched in November to invest in the lender’s core business while also reducing personnel costs. The bank made only 6 million euros in profit for last year due to large writedowns, a performance CEO Martin Blessing said was not satisfactory. The bank is raising 2.5 billion euros by issuing new shares through a capital increase approved at the April 19 shareholders’ meeting.The bank said Tuesday that currently low interest rates also hurt earnings as interest income fell by 338 million euros, to 1.356 billion from 1.694 billion euros. It saw more income from trading securities and made an operating profit excluding the restructuring charges of 469 million euros, although that was down 19 percent from the figure for the year-ago quarter.Profit for the rest of this year would be “shaped by ongoing pressure on revenues,” the banks said in a statement.Overall, the bank’s income before loan losses fell 4.6 percent to 2.46 billion euros.The bank said it was making “excellent progress” in disposing of investments that it no longer considers part of its core business such as commercial real estate and shipping loans. Non-core assets were reduced by 7.3 billion euros during the quarter to 143 billion euros. Sponsored Stories Bottoms up! Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day FRANKFURT, Germany (AP) – Germany’s Commerzbank said Tuesday it lost 94 million euros ($123 million) in the first quarter after taking heavy charges for future job reductions as the bank tries to turn its business around.The net loss compared to a profit of 355 million euros in the same quarter a year ago.Germany’s No. 2 lender behind Deutsche Bank took 493 million euros in reductions to earnings for restructuring that will include 4,000 to 6,000 job cuts by 2016. The bank announced the cuts in January and warned in April that it would take a large restructuring charge.

Death on Cyprus urban roads three times higher than EU average

first_imgMortality on urban roads in Cyprus is close to three times the EU average with around 60 deaths per million inhabitants, the fourth worst record in the bloc, with progress on reducing fatalities having stagnated, a damning report published on Tuesday revealed.More than 50 per cent of all road deaths on the island occur in urban areas, the authors said. Although Cyprus didn’t rank high in terms of pedestrian and cyclist deaths on city streets, a high level of traffic law violations leads in particular to the deaths of drivers of PTWs (powered two-wheelers). Motorbike and moped riders account for 31 per cent of all fatalities in urban areas.“Mopeds are widely used on urban roads by young and inexperienced people who are mostly students or delivery service providers. Most of the young moped users ride with a learners’ licence and they lack proper training,” the report said. It also said the use of safety helmets was not as widespread as desired and often when helmets were used, they were not properly strapped. It added that a culture of respect for PTW riders was lacking among other vehicle drivers.“Notwithstanding the above, an indepth study is required to provide evidence for the actual reasons for the large number of PTW deaths in Cyprus,” the report added, quoting George Morfakis, a Cypriot road safety expert.The report by the European Transport Safety Council (ETSC), a Brussels-based independent non-profit organisation, said mortality on urban roads was highest in Romania with 105 road users killed per million urban inhabitants – four times the EU average of 26.Urban road mortality in Croatia was 88 deaths per million, in Serbia 74, in Cyprus 60, in Greece 58 and in Poland 57, it showed. Certain countries, notably Cyprus and the UK, did not have boundary signs to distinguish between urban and rural road sections.“Progress has stagnated in the UK, Spain and Cyprus,” said the authors. On average, reported road deaths on urban roads decreased by 2.2 per cent annually in the EU since 2010. Recorded serious road traffic injuries were reduced on average by 6 per cent annually in Cyprus but the island was one of the 13 countries where the progress in reducing road deaths on urban roads was slower than the progress on rural roads. Road deaths on urban roads were reduced by 9 per cent more slowly annually than on rural roads in Lithuania, 8 per cent in Norway, and 7 per cent in Cyprus and Estonia.Tackling the issue must be a key priority for the EU over the next decade, the ETSC said. Pedestrians, cyclists and motorcyclists – the three most vulnerable road user groups – represent 70 per cent of those killed and seriously injured on urban roads across the bloc.“As long as people don’t feel safe walking and cycling in our towns and cities, many will be discouraged from using the most sustainable modes of transport. Over the next ten years, we want to see the EU and all European countries investing in urban transport in a way that prioritises the most vulnerable road users. This is not just about safer infrastructure and setting safe speed limits but also better enforcement of speed limits as well as reducing drink driving and distraction,” lead author of the report Dovilė Adminaitė-Fodor said.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
