Mary Kom lands a counter punch on detractors

first_imgBefore leaving for Mongolia for the Women’s Asian Championships, the much talked-about topic in India was whether five-time world champion Mary Kom will cope with the challenge from the Chinese boxers.Mary Kom’s toughest rival has been China’s two-time world 51kg champion Ren Cancan, who defeated her in the semi-finals of the 2010 Asian Games. But not only did Mary Kom avenge her defeat, beating Cancan at the Asian Championships in Mongolia, her victory was also a fitting reply to her detractors who had doubted her ability to perform consistently at the top level. “People used to say I am ageing, I am short and I can’t play up to the rising standard of the women’s boxing. But I always believe in hard work, so I remained silent and worked hard on my weaknesses. This victory is a reply to all those who doubted my ability,” Mary Kom, who has won her all three Asian titles in the 46kg category, told Mail Today. “People have blamed me for killing youngsters’ chances in the camp. But I am a supporter of fair competition and I say it again that if anyone can prove she is better than me, she has to first beat me in the ring,” she said.The standard of women’s boxing, which will make its debut at the Olympics this year, is on the rise. Like a champion, who realises the changes quickly, Mary Kom understood the importance of improvement after her defeat at an Olympic test event in London last year. She changed her base from Patiala to Pune to focus harder on individual training. The mother of two worked on her defence and learned the technique of landing punches in bunches.advertisementShe said the training played a major role in her success at the Asian stage. “The decision to shift to Pune helped me the most. Since I trained alone in Pune, I could focus on my defence in a better way. Since I am short, I sparred against tall boxers in order to cope with the height problems. These two aspects help me put up an improved performance in Mongolia,” she said.With the medal, she also boosted her chances at May’s World Championships – the solitary qualifying competition for the London Olympics. “The main thing about my victory is that I achieved it in the 51kg which is an Olympic category, and beating a two-time world champion has also boosted my confidence. I want to cash in on the momentum at the World Championships since playing and winning at the Olympics is my ultimate goal,” she said.last_img read more

Three Ways to Humanize Your Nonprofit’s Social Media Outreach

first_img(Credit: United Way, Source: Peter Panepento/The Chronicle of Philanthropy)Social media is a fantastic tool to make your presence known online. But are you using it correctly? Many nonprofits are using it to promote themselves, but often in the wrong ways, said Peter Panepento, assistant managing editor at The Chronicle of Philanthropy, at the Washington, DC, edition of the Social Media for Nonprofits conference. He often sees nonprofits tweeting links to press releases or posting them on their Facebook page, trying to hijack their social media pages as an “official communication channel.”“Don’t use social media to be bureaucratic,” Peter told the conference. Social media is the perfect tool for PR, but only when the emphasis is on personal. Nonprofits should put a human face on everything and use social media to humanize your organization.” “You don’t need a big budget or to be particularly photogenic,” Peter said, you just need to be human. Here are three rules we learned from Peter on how to humanize your social media and tell a great story:1. Think like a reporter.Use your social media accounts to feature someone in your community that your group engages with such as donors, beneficiaries of your work, and local businesses that support you. Seek out someone that can answer the question, “Who cares? Why should this matter to me?” Remember that stories are about people, so feature the people who matter to your cause.2. Share your #fail.In 2010, the organization charity: water posted on Facebook for its September Campaign Live Drill. From Central African Republic, they produced a live broadcast when they attempted to drill for clean water-and failed. Peter highlighted charity: water because instead of trying to hide that something went wrong, they made it public, even writing a blog post about it. For every success, there is failure. “Followers really responded to seeing things that don’t work, you seem more genuine to your followers.”3. Give your supporters the megaphone.Think about how your supporters can help tell your story over social media. Invite them to talk about your work just like the United Way did for their 160th anniversary (as seen above). You can even encourage volunteers to be reporters by rewarding them: retweet them, call them out, and thank them. If you bake it into the volunteer experience, Peter said, “you’ll get more genuine language from people than you could otherwise compose.”For better social media engagement, follow these tips from Peter to humanize your organization. “If you can show the work that you’re doing and the people you’re serving, even if it’s not in a mud pit somewhere in Alaska but at your desk, that can be really helpful.”The Social Media for Nonprofits conference is coming to Austin, TX on August 13, 2013.

Over the years, as the number of families in Pushpa’s village increased, she had to walk longer distances, and check on more mothers. Now, Pushpa agrees that her job has become more challenging and that she sometimes forgets. She knows she needs another way to keep track of the numbers, and to make sure that she can still look after every mother. With the help of the Maternal Health Reporter, a mobile-based platform developed by Global Health Bridge, Pushpa is able make this hope a reality.Read the full story here.Learn more about Global Health Bridge–and their work to improve maternal health in Jamkhed, India.Share this:last_img read more

Snapshots of Gender and WASH Innovations in India

Like all other settlements we have worked in, the women of Rajasthani Camp were frustrated with broken toilets, clogged drains, and garbage heaps in their community. The Women’s Forum launched a multi-pronged initiative this past fall. Armed with the community-specific disease data that emerged from a health conversation we convened, the Forum raised their concerns with a local leader who pressured authorities to fix the situation. Their persistence and determination has already paid off: toilet renovations are currently underway.By Sampath Kumor,Project Director, Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Trust, The Self Help Groups of Rajiv Gandhi Charitable Trust provide potent platforms to discuss and disseminate the objectives of the WASH and gender project. Women from socially and economically marginalized groups have now found a forum to discuss subjects that have always been disapproved and stigmatized. For communities with little choice but to defecate in the open, the process of identification of the risk and vulnerability of the same (particularly for adolescent girls) is a step closer towards the aim. In addition, targeted Self Help Groups for young women are utilizing peer-to-peer discussions to address menstrual hygiene management. The march is on!By Kathleen O’Reilly, Texas A&M University: In our research on successful sanitation habits in rural West Bengal and Himachal Pradesh, we have learned that using a toilet is so commonplace for mothers with young children that they often do not recognize the advantages gained by having a toilet. Despite casual replies to questions about the convenience of a household toilet, observation of mothers’ daily routines reveals that they take advantage of the toilet’s proximity by leaving children unattended when they use it. We have found that the toilet has become so useful and so habitual that women are no longer conscious of the burden it would be to take children with them for open defecation.For more in the WASH and Women’s Health blog series coordinated by WASH advocates, click here, or visit WASH Advocates.Share this: ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read:last_img read more

More Caffeine, Less Long-Term Damage for Premature Infants?

first_img ShareEmailPrint To learn more, read: Posted on May 22, 2014November 4, 2016By: Katie Millar, Technical Writer, Women and Health Initiative, Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public HealthClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)Caffeine can help us start our day or get us through a drowsy afternoon. But did you know caffeine can also help prevent a premature baby from having apneic spells, or periods of not breathing? Since 1977 we have known that pharmacological caffeine given to premature infants can help stimulate their immature brains and lungs to breath—preventing life threatening damage due to hypoxia, or lack of oxygen. This caffeine is usually given until the baby reaches 34 weeks gestation, or the time when the brains and lungs should be mature enough to breathe on their own.A recent study by Dr. Lawrence Rhein from Harvard Medical School and the Caffeine Pilot Study Group sought to evaluate if 34 weeks is really the best time to stop using caffeine. Dr. Rhein explained, “[34 weeks] is about that age that most babies stop having clinically obvious hypoxic spells. But the question has been, are there continued but less obvious episodes that we could and should be preventing? And can caffeine play a role in doing so?”What did the study find? Give the babies more caffeine. There are real, but less obvious, hypoxic spells after 34 weeks and giving caffeine to premature infants until 40 weeks, or term, gestation helps prevent them. The six week extension on administering caffeine prevented the hypoxic spells—or blood oxygen saturation levels below 90 percent. When blood oxygen levels were measured, babies in the extended caffeine treatment group experienced 52 percent less hypoxic spells and 47 percent less time under 90 percent oxygen saturation.Finding a healthy balance of oxygen levels for a premature infant is often a delicate science. While decreased oxygen can cause long term developmental morbidities and even death, supplemental oxygen and high oxygen saturation in the blood can also contribute to the development of retinopathy of prematurity (ROP), which may lead to blindness. The findings for this study provide at least a partial solution to this difficult balance by showing that caffeine can help stabilize oxygen saturation levels.Moving forward more research is needed to evaluate the types and consequences of the less obvious hypoxic spells occurring after 34 weeks. “Our data showed that [hypoxic] episodes can continue for weeks after caffeine is discontinued,” Rhein said. “Those episodes were not clinically obvious, but we don’t yet know which episodes we need to react to. We’re setting the stage to ask whether some of the episodes that we don’t think are significant can affect long-term cognitive development.” The answers to these questions have implications for both the future of the premature infant and family.If the hypoxic spells do affect long-term cognitive development, then treatment through extended caffeine has implications for improving outcomes and decreasing the need of special education services and health care costs to the family.Adapted from two articles—one in Vector, Boston Children’s Hospital’s science and clinical innovation blog and the other in news from Harvard Medical School.Do you have thoughts or insight on the effects of neonatal hypoxia?
