No related posts. By David Hutt | Special to The Tico Times LEÓN, Nicaragua – In a few weeks, more than 1.6 million Nicaraguan children will return to school for a new year. As they do, supporters and critics of the country’s educational system have already begun to argue over whether 2013 will be good or bad for students. Speaking at a rally of educators this month, Education Vice Minister José Treminio was upbeat about last year’s achievements. He lauded Nicaragua’s retention rate last year of 91 percent – meaning only nine percent of those who started the school year dropped out by the end of the year. “[The retention rate saw] an increase of six percent compared with 2006, and in social terms it means that thousands of children, adolescents and young people have stayed in school,” he said. He also noted that 89 percent of students passed year-end exams, an increase of two percent. Eleven percent had to repeat the exams, and those who failed three or more tests were required to repeat grade levels. “We would like all students to successfully pass the exams,” Treminio said.Critics, however, point to the troubling statistics of university entrance exams, and the amount of government spending on education. Reports released this month show that of 2,400 students who took admissions exams at the National Engineering University (UNI), only 136 passed a basic mathematics test – less than six percent. They also show that only 270 of 11,600 applicants – 2.3 percent – to the National Autonomous University of Nicaragua in Managua passed the entrance mathematics exam.When Daniel Ortega became president in 2007, he launched a series of strategies to combat low school attendance and poor student performance. Ortega’s critics point to the results from the UNI exams as a sign of his failure on educational policy – in 2007, 10 percent of those taking the exam passed. Ortega’s government also has come under criticism for not providing enough funds to fix the cracks in the education system. Nicaragua has the smallest annual budget in Central America, and the smallest budget for education.A report on primary education by the Nicaraguan NGO Instituto de Estudios Estratégicos y Políticas Públicas (Institute for Strategic Studies and Public Policies), noted that from 1999-2010, the government spent on average 3.5 percent of its annual gross domestic product on education. Honduras and Costa Rica, meanwhile, spent eight and six percent, respectively, while both have a far greater GDP. In 2012, Nicaragua lowered its percentage of GDP spending on education to 3.4, and according to the 2013 budget, spending will fall to less than 3 percent of annual GDP. One of the most worrying aspects of the Nicaraguan educational system is teacher pay. Nicaraguan teachers are the poorest paid for their profession in Central America, and are among the poorest paid of all professions in the country. José Antonio Zepeda, president of the National Confederation of Nicaraguan Education Workers, estimates that Nicaraguan teachers earn up to $226 a month. Although they have received annual salary increases in the past six years totaling 140 percent, most still cannot afford basic household items. Most teachers earn less than construction workers and half of what market traders bring home – although teachers do have access to social security and are protected by strong labor laws. Another problem is poverty. According to Treminio, “poverty should not be an impediment for children to attend classes.” But it often is. Strict guidelines exist for what each child needs to attend a school: a uniform, books and stationery. Many families cannot afford such necessities and children therefore are excluded. The government does operate a National Scholarship Fund that in 2012 provided financial assistance to more than 200,000 children. While the fund provides invaluable donations so that thousands of children can attend school, parents frequently face delays in accessing the money and government bureaucracy that is difficult to navigate. A bank account is needed to receive the money, yet banks require minimum deposits of $620 to open an account, which many poor families do not have.Access to education for many children is also flawed. In public schools the average year lasts only 200 days. Almost 30 of these days are national holidays or are spent outside of the classroom for patriotic processions. Plus, the school day in Nicaragua is really only a half-day. Many high schools operate morning sessions for younger children and then afternoon ones for older students. In cities like the colonial capital of León, various organizations provide a safe place for children to go either before or after their half-day at school – but these are charitable organizations, funded by donations. Even when students are in the classroom, conditions are not always conducive to learning. Schools frequently face a shortage of desks and basic books, and classes often sprawl to more than 40 students per teacher. Teachers can only effectively implement a traditional curriculum based on repetition. Students often use textbooks with the answers already written in. And whether due to shortages or methods of training, teachers work in an environment where little attention is placed on independent and critical thought. Government Response for 2013Speaking on education this month, government spokeswoman Rosario Murillo – Ortega’s wife – said, “We are happy but not complacent. We are not satisfied as long as schools are in poor condition, there are not enough schools, desks are not in good condition and parents are unhappy.”“We struggle every day to defeat poverty, because ending poverty will mean that student potential can be awakened,” she added. But what is the government planning to do to make progress in 2013?First, the education budget will increase this year. Officials say they will spend 49 percent of the total $1.9 billion budget on social programs. The Education Ministry is slated to receive almost $300 million – $33 million more than in 2012. Nicaragua also will receive $77 million from the World Bank for the coming school year. Officials have promised to increase teachers’ salaries. Grade school teachers are paid $157 a month, which will increase to $171 per month this year. Secondary school teachers’ salaries will increase from $174 to $189. This nine percent hike, however, is lower than the minimum wage increase of private-sector workers, who will be getting an extra 13 percent in pay in 2013. The Education Ministry will host a series of teacher-training workshops in the first week of February. Some 47,000 teachers will learn about participatory techniques, teaching methodologies and pedagogy. “We are determined to solve educational problems. We have a commitment to make a leap in the quality of education,” Treminio said. The government also has initiated local projects, such as buying 5,000 bicycles for students and teachers in rural areas. Nicaragua has made improvements in education in the past six years: More students are now attending school, including those from rural areas, fewer students drop out, and fewer fail year-end exams. But as the poorest country in Central America, Nicaragua faces an uphill battle. Many high school students still drop out to look for work, and those who stay face the consequences of decades of low investment in education, including crumbling schools and poor infrastructure.

GLENDALE, Ariz. — In their first meeting this season, the Arizona Cardinals needed five forced turnovers to beat the lowly San Francisco 49ers.Their second game against the NFC West foe went quite differently, albeit with the same result: a win.Arizona (2-6) lost the turnover battle 2-0, but a steady defensive effort that started with a switch to a base 4-3 look stymied the NFL’s third-best rushing attack that entered Sunday averaging 5.0 yards per carry. The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo 1 Comments Share Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact “I thought the run defense looked well,” head coach Steve Wilks said. “I thought we did a pretty good job of stopping the run today.”In the Cardinals’ 18-15 comeback win at State Farm Stadium, San Francisco averaged 3.5 yards per carry as Arizona regularly deployed a trio of linebackers: Haason Reddick, Josh Bynes and Deone Bucannon, the last of whom hasn’t played regularly or recorded a tackle dating back a month.“You just feel it. When everybody is making those plays and just everybody was flying around, that’s the type of defense we’re about,” Bucannon said after recording five tackles. “Everybody feeding off each other, we’re having the offense’s back, the offense having our back. That’s football.Related LinksRosen, Fitzgerald lead Cardinals to comeback win vs. 49ersRapid Reactions: Josh Rosen gets first comeback victory for CardinalsCardinals RB David Johnson returns after being evaluated for concussionThere’s a first time for everything: Larry Fitzgerald spikes the ball“Whatever my role is, I’m going to be the same. I’m here to play football.”The move to a three-linebacker look was partially to match up against a run-heavy team.But it also came as safety Tre Boston sat out for the second game in a row.So the Cardinals shifted nickel corner Budda Baker to deep safety on first and second downs for most of the night. He moved into the box on the majority of third-down plays, while starting corner Bene Benwikere slid to safety and backup corner Jamar Taylor took over the second cornerback position. Top Stories San Francisco 49ers running back Alfred Morris (46) is hit by Arizona Cardinals linebacker Haason Reddick (43) and free safety Antoine Bethea (41) during the second half of an NFL football game, Sunday, Oct. 28, 2018, in Glendale, Ariz. (AP Photo/Rick Scuteri) Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling “We just wanted to mix it up a little bit,” Wilks said of the personnel changes. “When you play a team twice, you want to try to show them something different. We wanted to go with base because of they were trying to do with 21 personnel.”The success up front also came as veteran tackle Corey Peters sat out due to an ankle injury, leaving Robert Nkemdiche and Rodney Gunter to do the work inside. They got help from Markus Golden, the defensive end who put together his best game (seven tackles, 1.0 sack, two tackles for loss) since returning from a torn ACL.The 49ers recorded a total net of 61 yards but led 5-3 at half, scoring in the first quarter on a safety when Arizona quarterback Josh Rosen was flagged for intentional grounding in the Cardinals’ own end zone. San Francisco added a field goal in the second quarter that was set up by a Rosen interception deep in Arizona territory.The only defensive breakdown for the Cardinals came when Niners receiver Marquise Goodwin separated from Patrick Peterson on a slant and took it 55 yards for a score. That made it a 12-3 San Francisco lead with six minutes left in the third quarter, seemingly putting enough of a buffer between San Francisco and an opponent with an equally lifeless offense. But while the Arizona offense surprisingly came to life, the defense kept showing up.On the 49ers’ next possession, they drove 73 yards but stalled a few plays into the fourth quarter. A quarterback sneak on 3rd-and-6 from the Arizona 6-yard line was snuffed out by safety Antoine Bethea, who had missed part of the drive after suffering a stinger. He tackled quarterback C.J. Beathard at the 2-yard line, forcing a 20-yard field goal that made it 15-3 with 13:33 to go.The play proved pivotal.On the next Niners possession, Peterson broke up a deep shot as Beathard attempted to connect with Goodwin on a post route. And after an Arizona drive ended with five minutes left when tight end Jermaine Gresham fumbled in San Francisco territory, the Cardinals defense got off the field in five plays to give the offense one more touch with 2:16 left.That was enough for Rosen to lead the offense on a 73-yard touchdown drive in just 1:42 for the lead, leaving just 34 seconds left on the clock.“We know we’ve been capable of playing this style of ball,” Bethea said.“That was one of our emphasis on Thursday, two-minute. Defense getting off the field, offense going in there, getting in the end zone.”

the upcoming movie “Nil Battey Sannata” today said she was initially reluctant to play the role of mother of a teenage girl fearing that it would affect her career In the film directed by Ashwini Iyer Tiwari the 27-year-old actress is playing the mother of a 15-year-old girl “When the casting director Mukesh Chhabra came with this idea of a mother-daughter film I thought I had to play the role of a daughter I was shocked and told him that my career will go down as it’s a mother’s role” Swara told reporters here at the launch of the trailer of ‘Nil Battey Sannata’ The film backed by filmmaker Aanand Rai and also featuring Ratna Pathak Pankaj Tripathi and Ria will release in theatres on April 22 “I had played Salman Khan’s sister (in ‘Prem Ratan Dhan Payo’) and then I get to play a mother (in Nil…) soon I might even get offer for the role of a grandmother” she said in a lighter vein Click here to watch the trailer Swara said that actresses typically play roles suitable to their age or roles of younger people “There were people who told me it’s not a good idea to do this role I was scared about my image” the actress said adding that when she read the story of the film she fell in love with the idea Swara said she had initially thought of refusing to play the role “I thought I will just read the script as the casting director is a friend and say that I did not like the story But rather I loved it (story)” she said Swara said she was told by the director to gain weight for the role “I was asked to gain 10 kg So I kept eating and eating But midway through the shoot she (Ashwini Iyer Tiwari) told me to lose some weight as I was looking a bit too healthy It is difficult to lose weight” she said Explaining the title of the film Swara revealed that in real life she is “Nil Battey Sannata” (‘being an absolute zero or incompetent’) when it comes to glamour Swara considers walking the red carpet is like appearing for examination “To be a heroine is an occupational hazard Earlier I used to not pay attention to it (glamour side) Now I do my homework as we have a team (stylist)” she said Considering that she has worked with fashionista Sonam Kapoor in “Ranjhaana” and “Prem Ratan Dhan Payo” Swara said she talked girly stuff with her Swara however said that actors are remembered for the work they do “It was great experience of working with her (Ratna Pathak

25 2016 12:20 am Despite campaigns urging two-wheeler riders to wear helmets it seems to be failing in creating awareness Express file photo Related News A CITY where two-wheelers whizz past every possible road safety of pedestrians and commuters management of roads and enforcement of rules laid out under the Motor Vehicle Act should perhaps be on the top agenda of both the civic bodies and the Traffic Police However yet again the Pune Traffic Police have thrown accident figures that indicate a lot needs to be done to build awareness on road safety especially among two-wheeler riders in Pune and Pimpri Chinchwad Figures show that as many as 68 “helmet-less” two-wheeler riders were killed and 140 seriously injured in accidents during the period January- April this year in Pune city and Pimpri-Chinchwad As many as 35 of them belonged to the age group 18-35 years Ironically this figure of deaths is not too different from the previous two years–reflecting on how very little has been done by the two civic bodies and the Traffic Police to take stock of the situation–a fact that has been repeatedly highlighted by the Pune Newsline over the years While 68 two-wheeler riders were reported dead from January 1 to April 30 this year in 2015 72 deaths were reported and in 2014 71 deaths had occurred Every year around 240 deaths are reported from the jurisdiction of Pune Municipal Corporation Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Corporation Khadki and Dehu Road cantonment areas In the 68 cases the deaths have occurred on the spot or while the victim was being taken to hospital police said Share This Article Related Article Police said this year the maximum cases of serious injuries—140—many slipping into coma have been reported in comparison to previous years In 2015 112 two-wheeler riders were seriously injured during the same period By serious injuries police said they mean those who have suffered head injuries or multiple injuries that can be fatal “Several of the seriously injured have died within a few days of the accident but the relatives seldom file a police complaint and therefore they are unregistered deaths” said a police official Civic activists said this only indicates that the actual figure of deaths of two-wheeler rider is much higher than what is available with the Traffic Police Despite constant campaigns urging two-wheeler riders to wear helmets it seems to be failing in building awareness among riders For the figures indicate that this year 68 people who died didn’t wear helmets while riding bikes and lost their lives This highlights the fact that the civic bodies and the Traffic Police have collectively failed in enforcing basic road safety guidelines “The deaths occur due to severe head injuries multiple injuries that are fatal or if the vehicle has run over the victim” officials said An analysis of the deaths by traffic police department showed that at least 40 of two-wheeler riders died after being hit by a heavy vehicle a car a tempo or a PMPML bus There are three deaths in which the two-wheeler riders skidded due to slippery condition of road and also three deaths have occurred after two-wheeler hit a road side pole Three deaths have been reported after the two-wheeler riders have run into a pothole The Traffic Police said they were still analysing the deaths and would be in a position to reveal facts only after a few days When Pune Newsline approached hospitals to find out the number of two-wheeler riders undergoing treatment after mishaps at least at two hospitals doctors revealed that 12 patients had slipped into coma due to severe head injuries Doctors at the Aditya Birla Memorial Hospital in Chinchwad said in last four months around 80 injured two-wheeler riders were admitted by them Of these 37 were in critical state and 37 had suffered head injuries Of the 80 patients 8 had slipped into coma “Three of them are still in coma while others have come out of it” doctors said At Max Neuro hospital in Dapodi Dr Umesh Phalke said in past four months they have received 150 patients who were injured in two-wheeler accidents Of these four had slipped into coma and had come out of it after a long time Three were youngsters while one was a 52-year-old—all residents of Pune city Pimpri-Chinchwad and rural parts of Pune district “We mostly get patients who have suffered head injuries We have more than 50 per cent patients with head injuries” he said Reacting to this civic activists claim if only two hospitals show figures such as this the collective figure across hospitals in the area would be substantial A private hospital in Pimpri-Chinchwad has one 56-year-old patient from Narayangaon who has been undergoing treatment for head injury for 8 months The woman was a pillion rider when she suddenly fell from the bike and suffered a head injury For some time she was in coma but has now come out of it This incident shows how important it is for even a pillion riders to wear a helmet said Traffic Police Deputy Commissioner of Police (traffic) Pravin Munde who has recently taken over said enforcing helmet norm would remain high on his agenda “Even the Police Commissioner Rashmi Shukla had stressed upon the importance of enforcing the helmet norm by building awareness campaigns” said Munde Meanwhile Sassoon Hospital Dean Dr Ajay Chandanwale said “What we have observed is that accidents are more common during evening hours Most of the accidents occur as two-wheeler riders fail to spot a speed-breaker or a pothole It is therefore important that the speed-breakers are marked properly” Manav Kamble of Nagari Haqq Samiti said though the Central government last month had issued directives to local civic bodies to remove all abnormal sized speed-breakers and replace them with rumble strips civic bodies are seem to be sitting duck on the issue “Despite the government directives both Pune and Pimpri-Chinchwad civic bodies have been slow to react” he said When contacted Pimpri-Chinchwad Municipal Commissioner Dinesh Waghmare said”I am new to the job and hence would consult DCP traffic about putting rumble strips across the city” For all the latest Pune News
