OTTAWA – Prime Minister Justin Trudeau encouraged people over the weekend to donate to the Canadian Red Cross to help British Columbians affected by raging wildfires and he made a similar appeal for Ontario and Quebec flood victims earlier this year.However unlike many international disasters like the earthquakes in Nepal two years ago or in Haiti in 2010, Canada’s appeal for domestic donations isn’t shored up by a pledge that the government will pony up an equal amount of cash to match the individual donors.The federal government has had matching contribution programs for more than a dozen international events since 2004, but it has only ever done it once for a natural disaster in Canada, the massive wildfire in Fort McMurray, Alta. last year.The government matched $104.5 million donated to the Canadian Red Cross to respond to the forest fire which forced evacuation of the entire northeastern Alberta city.Kimberley Nemrava, Canadian Red Cross vice-president for British Columbia and Yukon, said such government involvement seems to make people more apt to reach into their wallets.The Red Cross has seen a “bump in donations” whenever a government runs a matching program for charitable giving, she said.“The feedback I have from donors is often that they like the concept of their funds being doubled,” said Nemrava.The first international matching relief program was established to help after the Indian Ocean tsunami in 2004, and Canada has matched almost $800 million in charitable giving by Canadians for 12 other disasters since then.That doesn’t include the amounts donated for the African famine this spring, or up to $2 million Trudeau pledged in May to match donations to aid rebuilding efforts following earthquakes in Central Italy.Most often the eligible donations to be matched can be made to a number of different aid agencies, although Canada’s matching dollars don’t always go to the same agencies, but rather to multinational organizations like the United Nations or the International Development Bank.In the spring, Ottawa pledged $1 million to the Canadian Red Cross to aid families displaced by major flooding along the Ottawa River, St. Lawrence River and Lake Ontario.A week ago Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale said Canada would contribute an amount equal to whatever the Canadian Red Cross spends on direct aid to registered fire evacuees in B.C. this summer. Trudeau made an appeal for people to donate during a stop in Revelstoke, B.C. on Saturday.The agency is providing $600 to every family displaced, another $600 for those who can’t return home for more than two weeks and $300 per family when they can return.The Canadian Red Cross has received $9.6 million in donations since the first fire appeals began in the second week of July.For Fort McMurray last year, Canadians donated $86 million in just 10 days following the Canadian government’s announcement of matching funds.In May Goodale told the Canadian Press the government would have to consider matching funds for spring flood victims but no announcement came. His spokesman said Sunday it was used for Fort McMurray because of “unique circumstances” but that normally national disasters are handled by the federal Disaster Financial Assistance Arrangements that helps cover provincial expenditures following floods, hurricanes, fires and the like.When Trudeau announced the $2 million matching donation fund for the Italian earthquakes he raised the ire of Conservative MP Maxime Bernier, who complained Italy was a rich country.“Can’t we use taxpayers $ (dollars) on our flood victims,” he tweeted May 14.A Conservative Party spokesman said nobody wouldn’t comment on the matter right now because of the ongoing crises faced by British Columbia’s wildfires.-follow @mrabson on Twitter.
4 June 2010Boosting maternal health and developing ways to overcome and respond to diseases such as HIV/AIDS will be the focus of Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s upcoming visit to Washington and five African countries starting on Monday. In Washington, Mr. Ban will open the Women Deliver 2010 conference, which is the largest-ever gathering on maternal health, drawing 3,500 participants from 140 countries, according to organizers.The three-day event, starting on Monday, will focus on the theme, “Delivering solutions for girls and women,” underscoring the need for maternal and reproductive health to be a top priority.Participants are expected to discuss how the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – eight anti-poverty and other socio-economic targets with a 2015 deadline – will not be reached without investment in women. They are also set to confer on how the world can achieve the MDG on improving maternal health if governments and donors commit the necessary funding now.While in the United States capital, Mr. Ban will speak at the Global Business Coalition on HIV/AIDS, TB and Malaria. He is also scheduled to meet with Senator John Kerry and hold talks with the National Association for Evangelicals.Later on Monday, the Secretary-General will make the second of his three scheduled visits to Africa in the course of a month, travelling first to South Africa to discuss the MDGs and attend the start of the World Cup soccer tournament.He will also visit Burundi, Cameroon, Benin and Sierra Leone, before returning to New York on 16 June.Last weekend Mr. Ban visited Malawi and Uganda, where he addressed the first-ever review conference of the International Criminal Court (ICC).For the court to have the reach it needs, it must have universal support, he said. “Only then will perpetrators have no place to hide.”So far 111 countries have become parties to the Rome Statute that established the ICC, while 37 others have signed but not yet ratified it. But some of the world’s largest and most powerful countries, including China, India, Russia and the United States, have not joined.The Secretary-General’s third visit to Africa will be to Gabon, Nigeria and the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC), where a UN peacekeeping mission – known as MONUC – has been in operation for 11 years.Last week, the Security Council agreed to transform the operation into a stabilization mission in the coming weeks, authorizing the withdrawal of up to 2,000 UN military personnel by 30 June from areas where security has improved enough to allow their removal.
Sri Lanka continues to be a key part of India’s “neighbourhood first” policy, the Indian High Commission in Colombo said today.The High Commission of India and the Indian expatriate community in Sri Lanka celebrated the 68th Republic Day of India today at India House in Colombo. He highlighted India’s achievement in social, political and economic fields in the last six and half decades. Today, India is the fastest growing economy amongst the major economies of the world. India is the second largest reservoir of scientific and technical manpower, the third largest army, the sixth member of the nuclear club, the sixth member in the race for space, and the tenth largest industrial power. From a net food grains importing country, India is now a leading exporter of food commodities.Highlighting recent initiatives of the Government of India, President mentioned flagship initiatives such as Swachh Bharat Mission, MGNREGA, Aadhaar, Digital India programme, Start-up India, Atal Innovation Mission, and Skill India initiative. (Colombo Gazette) He stated that the Indian flagship housing project, aiming to construct 50,000 houses, is proceeding well with over 45,300 houses constructed till date. The High Commissioner also cautioned against the threat posed by the dark forces of terrorism and stressed the necessity of defeating these forces decisively.The High Commissioner and officials of the High Commission paid their respects to the memory of fallen soldiers of the Indian Peace Keeping Force (IPKF) in a solemn ceremony at the IPKF memorial in Colombo.The High Commissioner credited strong democratic institutions built over the last six and a half decades for making India an oasis of stability. High Commissioner Taranjit Singh Sandhu unfurled the Indian flag and inspected a Guard of Honour presented by a contingent of the Border Security Force. Speaking here, the High Commissioner congratulated the Government on the completion of two years in office. Stating that Sri Lanka continues to be a key part of India’s “neighbourhood first” policy, he expressed hope that Sri Lankan businesses will take advantage of their proximity to the fastest growing major economy in the world.The High Commissioner added that India’s total development assistance commitment to Sri Lanka is now around US$ 2.6 billion, with over US$ 435 million as outright grants.
It was around Easter at the end of March 1989 and Caroline had been for a night out to the Coach in Banbridge with a girlfriend. She stayed part of the night with her friend in a hostel in Portadown but was gone in the morning. I have information that suggests Caroline returned to Hanover Street to get some clothes but she has not been seen since. I believe she was murdered some time later and that her remains are somewhere in Portadown. OFFICERS IN PORTADOWN investigating the murder of a woman who’s been missing for over 25 years will today use sniffer dogs as part of the search of a house where she used to live.It’s part of a fresh effort being made in the case of Caroline Graham who was last seen after a night out in Portadown in 1989.Today’s search operation will take place at a property in Hanover Street where 19-year-old Caroline lived. Specially trained PSNI victim recovery dogs which can identify traces of human remains will be deployed.Caroline was living with her boyfriend in Hanover Street at the time of her disappearance in April 1989 but was originally from Newry. It’s understood she had been living in the Portadown area for around two years before her disappearance.The PSNI say that today’s search is being carried out under warrant but with the consent of the current owner adding that they do not believe the current occupant has knowledge of the events of 1989.The officer leading the investigation detective chief inspector Peter Montgomery says that “he still believes a form of closure is possible for Caroline and her family”: The current phase of the investigation has been ongoing for the past two years with police saying that their appeals for information have been “very prodcutive”, something which led to today’s search.The nearby Carleton Street area has been searched as have areas of waste ground and a number of different premises.Montgomery says that detectives believe that the key to recovering Caroline’s remains “lies with a small group of local people” because whoever was responsible for her murder may have spoken to people.“I need to speak to anyone who saw Caroline at the Coach with her friend that night,” he said.“Did you pick up Caroline and her friend and drop them off in Portadown? Six weeks ago I appealed to two men, possibly off-duty soldiers, who gave Caroline a lift in a black Ford XR3i car that night to come forward. Although I am not treating them as suspects, they have yet to make contact. I would urge them to do so.”This latest search comes just six weeks after Caroline’s mother, Barbara, appealed for information about her daughter’s disappearance and murder.A 76-year-old woman arrested in June in connection with a murder was also released.Anyone with information is asked to contact detectives on +44 2890 700 727.Read: 76-year-old woman released after being arrested in connection with 1989 murder >Read: Ireland’s cold case detectives say ‘it’s never too late’ >
SEATTLE — The violence in Charlottesville this past weekend struck a deeply personal and painful cord for the president of the University of Washington.Ana Mari Cauce issued a statement Monday saying the weekend was difficult for all who believe in justice and equity. But the death of a young protester sparked memories of her own family’s loss.Cauce said: “The images of the Klan, Nazis and neo-Nazis brought me back to the horror of almost 40 years ago to another Saturday morning when people from these same groups murdered my own brother, Cesar, then 25.”Cesar Cauce and four others were killed during a protest against the Ku Klux Klan and American Nazi Party in North Carolina in 1979, which became known as the Greensboro Massacre.Ana Mari Cauce says we’re at a time in our country’s history when we must recommit to inclusion and equality.

Robert Kennedy Publishing parent Canusa declared bankruptcy in June 2013 and AIM bought the three brands in cash through an auction process that kicked off in July. Andrew Clurman, AIM’s president and chief operating officer, says the company has been quietly building up its health and fitness division, anchored by its Yoga Journal and Vegetarian Times brands. “We track everyone who’s in our competitive neighborhood and we’ve been aware of and kept an eye on Clean Eating and Oxygen,” says Clurman. “We were impressed with the newsstand and subscription sales, both have been growing—the right way, not through artificial means.”Oxygen is currently at about 125,000 subscribers, with an additional 60,000 in newsstand sales. Clean Eating has 140,000 subscribers with another 80,000 sold at retail. And MuscleMag has about 50,000 readers with 32,000 subscribers and 18,000 single-copy sales.Prior to this deal, AIM’s healthy living group also included martial arts title Black Belt, Muscle & Performance, Better Nutrition, Amazing Wellness and The Box, a magazine for enthusiasts of the CrossFit style of exercise. Amazing Wellness and Muscle & Performance are both custom published for and distributed through The Vitamin Shoppe.The deal is characterized by a particularly traditional media framework, but Clurman says AIM’s approach has been to launch, or buy, a magazine and then surround it with a diversified platform. Prior to the acquisition, 42 percent of AIM’s revenues were advertising sourced (print and digital), with the rest coming from events, services and book and product sales. “This [deal] will increase our print advertising quotient, but our goal is to then diversify around these brands,” says Clurman.Most of the existing staff from the Kennedy titles were displaced as a result of the bankruptcy, but AIM is working with a firm in Toronto to restart the business and move some of the staff to the U.S. Oxygen and MuscleMag International will be moved to AIM’s California office, while Clean Eating will start operating out of the Boulder office. Enthusiast publisher Active Interest Media has acquired three titles from Robert Kennedy Publishing, based in Ontario, Canada. Included in the cash deal are women’s health and fitness title Oxygen, recipe and nutrition magazine Clean Eating and MuscleMag International.
Chief Justice of India Ranjan GogoiIANSIn a shocking development, a 35-year-old woman has raised the complaint that the Supreme Court of India Chief Justice, Ranjan Gogoi, sexually harassed her. The woman, a former junior court assistant, wrote a letter to 22 judges of the apex court levelling the charges. She alleged that Gogoi made sexual passes at her twice during October last year. Meanwhile, the Secretary General of the Supreme Court of India denied the allegations, saying it was “completely and absolutely false and scurrilous”.”Its is also very possible that there are mischevious forces behind all this, with an intention to malign the institution,” the office said in a email in reply to queries on the issue, the Scroll reported.Narrating her ordeal, the woman says in her complaint that she was transferred from the CJI’s residence office after the sexual harassment incident. In a shocking turn of events, the employee was dismissed from service on December 1 on grounds that she had taken a single-day casual leave without approval. If the statements in the woman’s sworn affidavit are to be believed, the events that ensued after the top judge’s alleged misbehaviour were predatory. After the woman was dismissed, her husband, a head constable with the Delhi police, was suspended from service on December 28. His brother, also a head constable with the Delhi police, was suspended as well, the complaint says. The victim, who worked as a junior court assistant, detailed the harassment in an affidavit sent to all judges of the supreme court on April 19.The supreme court Secretary General’s office, in a written reply to media queries, however, narrated a different account of the happenings. One pertinent paragraph goes thus:”The motive behind these false and scurrilous allegations is obviously mischevious. As referred to in your letter, there is a criminal case pending against her, where very serious allegation have been made, of her having taken a bribe to assure employment in the Supreme Court of India. It has been learnt that there is an application for the cancellation of bail earlier granted to her, which is listed for hearing on 20.04.2019 on acoount of her having made threats to the complainant of the said case.”The victim’s own account, which the 22 judges of the supreme court are reviewing, differs drastically and offers a blow by blow account of the events from her point of view. The woman says her work had earned the praise of the chief justice and she was given invitations to high-profile functions. She says everything changed when she rebuffed the physical advances of Gogoi in October.The Caravan has reported that the woman has also submitted evidence including video recordings as part of her complaint. This pertains to the incident in which a police official accompanied her to the CJI’s residence after she was fired from the service. She says that she was made to apologise to the CJI’s wife at this point. The Secreatry General’s letter says that there have been “complaints made against her by the secretariat of the Chief Justice of India, to the Secretary General on account of her inappropriate behavior,”. It says this resulted in her transfer out of the home office of the CJI. “Apart from the misconduct formally recorded in the complaint by the secretariat, there were other counts of misconduct on her part.”However, the letter doesn’t give details of her alleged misdeeds. “It appears that these false allegations are being made asa pressure tactics to somehow come out of the various proceedings which have been initiated in law, against her and her family, for their on wrong doings. Its is also very possible that there are mischevious forces behind all this, with an intention to malign the institution,” the letter says.The woman says in her complaint that her last resort was writing to the supreme court judges. “It is only when the victimisation has reached unbearable proportions when me and my family were taken into police custody and tortured, and now there is imminent danger to my life that I am compelled to speak the whole truth, in order to save myself and my family,” she says.”I have been victimised for resisting and refusing the unwanted sexual advances of the CJI and my entire family has also been victimised and harassed due to that.”
The confirmation hearings of President Trump’s Supreme Court nominee, Judge Neil Gorsuch, began with Senate Judiciary Republicans praising his qualifications and legal philosophy.“His grasp on the separation of powers — including judicial independence –enlivens his body of work,” committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, R-Iowa, said of the federal appeals court judge during his opening remarks on Monday.Democrats, however, wanted to talk about the man they believed should have been sitting there instead: former President Barack Obama’s nominee, Judge Merrick Garland, who was denied a hearing by Senate Republicans during an election year. Garland and Gorsuch were nominated to replace Justice Antonin Scalia, who passed away suddenly in February 2016.“I am deeply disappointed that it is under these circumstances that we begin these hearings,” said Judiciary Committee Ranking Member Dianne Feinstein, D-Calif.She went on to say that Democrats would give Gorsuch a courtesy that Senate Republicans did not give Garland: a fair hearing.“Our job is to determine whether Judge Gorsuch is a reasonable mainstream conservative or is he not,” Feinstein continued. She then outlined her concerns with some of Gorsuch’s past writings that hinted he opposed Roe v. Wade, calling the case a “super precedent” that legalized abortion and gave women a right to privacy.The outset of the first day of testimony underscored that the hearings would remain sharply divided along party lines, with each senator accusing the opposing side of political posturing.Sen. Orrin Hatch, R-Utah, argued that the Senate owes a president discretion in picking his judicial nominees and pointed out that Gorsuch had received the highest rating possible from the American Bar Association, the “gold standard” in vetting judicial nominees.Hatch blasted Democrats for wanting Gorsuch to outline how he would vote on certain cases, saying that to them, “judicial independence requires he be beholden to them and [their] political agenda” on issues like abortion.Other Republicans argued that Gorsuch should be judged on his own merits, legal writings and decisions — not compared to the man who nominated him.Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., said, “The nominee before us today is not President Trump,” nor is he Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell or Judge Garland.Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., joked that he was certainly no fan of Trump during the campaign and made the case that Republicans didn’t blockade Gorsuch’s nomination to allow Trump to make a nomination because most of them didn’t believe Trump would win last November.“If you believe this has been a great plan to get a Trump nominee on the court, then you had to believe Trump was going to win to begin with,” said Graham.The South Carolina Republican pointed out that he had voted to confirm President Obama’s two Supreme Court nominees, Justices Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan, because they were qualified for the bench and not because he agreed with their politics. Graham urged his Democratic colleagues to give Gorsuch the same deference.“I’m dying to hear someone over there tell me why [Gorsuch] is not qualified to be sitting here,” Graham said.Texas Sen. Ted Cruz claimed in his comments that Gorsuch’s nomination carried with it a “super legitimacy” because Trump made the Supreme Court vacancy a major campaign issue.Still, Democrats devoted many of their opening statements to push back against the so-called Republican obstructionism that they believe caused Scalia’s seat to remain vacant for more than a year.“The Judiciary Committee once stood against a court-packing scheme that would have eroded judicial independence. That was a proud moment. Now, Republicans on this committee are guilty of their own ‘court un-packing scheme,’ ” said Sen. Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. “The blockade of Chief Judge Merrick Garland was never grounded in principle or precedent.”Gorsuch will give his own opening statement Monday afternoon, and answer committee members’ questions on Tuesday.Copyright 2017 NPR.

Share AP Photo/Alexander ZemlianichenkoPersonnel work at the scene of a AN-148 plane crash in Stepanovskoye village, about 40 kilometers (25 miles) from the Domodedovo airport, Russia, Monday, Feb. 12, 2018. A Russian passenger plane carrying 71 people crashed Sunday near Moscow, killing everyone aboard shortly after the jet took off from one of the city’s airports. The Saratov Airlines regional jet disappeared from radar screens a few minutes after departing from Domodedovo Airport en route to Orsk, a city some 1,500 kilometers (1,000 miles) southeast of Moscow.Wading through knee-deep snow, hundreds of emergency workers searched a vast field near Moscow on Monday for remains of the 71 victims from the crash of a Russian airliner, and aviation experts began deciphering the jet’s two flight recorders.Investigators quickly ruled out a terrorist attack in Sunday’s crash of the An-148 regional jet bound for Orsk in the southern Urals. The air disaster has reignited questions, however, about the twin-engine plane that was developed jointly by Russia and Ukraine but phased out of production amid the political crisis between the neighbors.The model has a spotty safety record, with one previous crash and a string of major incidents in which pilots struggled to land safely. The carrier, Saratov Airlines, has grounded several other An-148s in its fleet pending the crash investigation.The plane crashed several minutes after taking off from Moscow’s Domodedovo airport, and all 65 passengers and the crew of six were killed when the aircraft hit the ground and exploded in a giant fireball.The Investigative Committee, Russia’s top agency for looking into such disasters, said that before the crash, the plane was intact and there had been no fire on board. Officials would not speculate on possible causes.The plane’s fuel tanks exploded on impact, gouging a deep crater and scattering wreckage across 30 hectares (74 acres), according to the Emergencies Ministry, which used drones to direct the search. Pieces of the plane and human remains were buried in deep snow; some debris was found in nearby trees.Deputy Prime Minister Arkady Dvorkovich told a Cabinet meeting that emergency teams found both flight data and cockpit voice recorders, which will be significant to determining the cause of the crash. Investigators said they have started working on them.President Vladimir Putin put off a planned trip to Sochi and stayed in Moscow to monitor the investigation Monday. The Kremlin said U.S. President Donald Trump called Putin to express his condolences.Officials said the search for victims’ remains will take a week. The passengers ranged in age from 5 to 79, according to a list from the Emergencies Ministry. Most victims were from Orsk, where authorities declared Monday to be an official day of mourning.Saratov Airlines said the jet had received proper maintenance and passed all the necessary checks before the flight. The plane was built in 2010 for a different airline that operated it for several years before putting it in storage. Saratov Airlines commissioned it last year.The captain had more than 5,000 hours of flying time, 2,800 of them in an An-148, the airline said. The other pilot had 812 hours of experience, largely in that model.Another Russian operator that uses the plane, Angara, based in eastern Siberia, said it would keep flying them. The Defense Ministry and other government agencies that also use the aircraft haven’t grounded them either.President Petro Poroshenko of Ukraine also has used that model of plane for some of his trips.The An-148, developed by Ukraine’s Antonov company in the early 2000s, once was touted as an example of Russian-Ukrainian cooperation, but it fell into trouble as relations between the two countries unraveled following Russia’s 2014 annexation of Ukraine’s Crimean Peninsula.Most of about 40 such planes built under the cooperative agreement were manufactured by a Russian manufacturer in Voronezh, with Ukraine providing the engines and many other components.Its production in Russia was halted last year, and media reports indicated that some carriers, including Saratov Airlines, experienced a shortage of spare parts. Some airlines reportedly had to cannibalize planes to keep others airworthy.Alexander Neradko, the head of Rosaviatsiya, the state agency overseeing civil aviation, said it will make a detailed scrutiny of Saratov Airlines’ operations, but he added that the company had a decent record.Some regional carriers in Russia reportedly have cut corners on servicing aircraft.Pilot Andrei Litvinov told independent Dozhd TV that the government should help smaller carriers that are struggling to stay in business.“They are trying to save money on maintaining their planes to prevent going under,” he said.One An-148 crashed during a training flight in Russia in March 2011, killing all six crew members on board. Investigators blamed pilot error.In 2010, another An-148 operated by a Russian carrier suffered a major failure of its control system, but its crew managed to land safely.In September, one engine of a Saratov Airlines An-148 shut down minutes after takeoff, but it landed safely. And in October, another An-148 that belonged to a different Russian carrier suffered an engine fire on takeoff but also managed to land. Engine shutdowns have occurred on several other occasions.The last major airline crash in Russia occurred on Dec. 25, 2016, when a Tu-154 operated by the Defense Ministry on its way to Syria crashed into the Black Sea minutes after takeoff from Sochi. All 92 people aboard were killed. The investigation into that crash is ongoing, but officials have indicated it was due to pilot error.
More information: © 2010 PhysOrg.com The details of the project were announced at the 2011 Symposium on VLSI Circuits event, which took place at June 15th. Since the system does not require a battery, it has the capability of being used to create an ultra-small sensor node that could be used in a variety of applications and send data to a smart phone that is within a distance of one meter. The system could also be used with any Bluetooth- compatible device in range. This is possible because the system reduces the use of power from several tens of milliwatts to several microwatts, which represents a significant decrease in power. In order to achieve that Renesas created a module that is equipped with an LC resonant circuit. The circuit allows the system to absorb radio waves through LC resonance. The harvesting occurs at a rate of about 10μW from environmental radio waves. The radio waves can then be used to transmit the signal to mobile devices, allowing them to interpret the device as the sensor node sending “0” signals when it is on and “1” signals when the device is not transmitting. While there is little to no information on when the device will be available to the consumer market. Though the company expects that it will be within the next two to three years. via TechOn Explore further Radio Waves: Alternative Power Source Citation: Renesas creates a near-field wireless communication with no battery use (2011, June 16) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-06-renesas-near-field-wireless-battery.html (PhysOrg.com) — Renesas Electronics Corp has announced the development of a near-field wireless communication technology that can transmit data to Bluetooth- and wireless LAN-compatible devices without the use of a battery.

This makes no sense, as the costs for treating people with end stage kidney disease are enormous, along with the devastating effect it has on patients and their families,” said Adeera Levin, President of the International Society of Nephrology which produced the Atlas. “A diagnosis of CKD does not mean that you will need dialysis or a transplant, but does signal that you are at risk for many health problems, including heart disease, strokes, and infections,” Levin, who is also a Professor of Medicine at the University of British Colombia in Canada, added. While CKD can affect anyone, people are at higher risk if they have any one or more of a number of risk factors: these include high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity smoking, being aged 60 years or over, having established cardiovascular disease, having a family history of kidney failure, and being from a high-risk ethnic group or having a history of acute kidney injury. Acute kidney injury can be caused by infections, dehydration or damage from medications or ingesting toxic drugs. “A general lack of awareness of CKD, among patients and family doctors alike, and a lack of symptoms in the early stages, means that kidney function is usually hugely reduced by the time symptoms arise,” said Professor David Johnson, co-chair of the Global Kidney Health Atlas, and Professor at the University of Queensland, Brisbane, Australia.The kidneys are vital organs in our bodies, removing waste and excess water and controlling the acidity balance of our blood. Chronic kidney disease is the gradual loss of the kidneys’ abilities to perform these essential functions, and can be caused by high blood pressure, diabetes, obesity, smoking and other risk factors.
