You’re not like others, you are football, the real one, the pure one of children.“Our thoughts go out to your mother and your father, to your brothers, to Francesca and to Princess Vicky. You were a man with a capital M and we will tell her. You are the light for all of us.”The service lasted about two hours. As soon as the coffin was brought back out, the people in the square again raised their scarves, sang the Fiorentina anthem and chanted Astori’s name as well as “c’e solo un capitano” (there’s only one captain).Astori’s mother blew a kiss to the crowd, while the people of Florence were also thanked by his brother Marco in his eulogy.Many dignitaries and former teammates were at the funeral, including Giuseppe Rossi, who plays for Genoa, and Borja Valero and Matias Vecino, who play for Inter Milan.

From scarcity to security

first_imgSingapore has developed from being a water-scarce developing nation into a world leader in water management within a few decades. Since independence in 1965, one of the main concerns of the government has been to provide clean water for the growing domestic and non-domestic sectors. In 1965, Singapore was dependent on the state of Johor, Malaysia, for water resources under two agreements: one signed in 1961 and a second one signed in 1962. In view of this dependence, long-term security of water became an essential consideration for the city-state. As a result, the country developed and executed plans to enhance water security and self-sufficiency. Innovations covered aspects of policy, planning, management, institutional development, finances, technology, and most recently, societal behaviour. Also Read – A special kind of bondThe main reason for Singapore’s success in managing its water resources is its parallel emphasis on supply and demand management, including conventional and non-conventional sources of water — reused water and desalinated water. Singapore’s entire water cycle is managed by Public Utilities Board (PUB) that collects, treats and reuses used water on an extensive scale, a step that very few countries have taken. The supply of water has been further expanded by reducing water that’s unaccounted for, which is defined as actual water loss due to leaks, plus apparent water losses arising from meter inaccuracies. Also Read – Insider threat managementAlso, Singapore does not have illegal connections and all water connections are metered. The unaccounted-for water has decreased from about 9.5 per cent in 1990 to about 5 per cent in recent years, one of the lowest rates in the world. Water conservation is encouraged in the domestic sector and mandated in the non-domestic sector too. These include efficiency measures, both engineering solutions and human behaviour, such as appliances within PUB’s efficiency ratings. What has made Singapore different and possess the best water management practices in the world? The answer is government support, long-term planning, and realisation that clean and reliable water resources are essential for overall socio-development. Following the policy paradigm of “think ahead, think again and think across”, Singapore has looked for every opportunity to collect, treat, reuse and produce the necessary water resources not only at present but in a horizon that spans several decades. The city-state water resources planning, governance, and practices hold lessons for every other developed and developing city. It is worth studying.(The author is a senior research fellow at the Institute of Water Policy, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore, and editor-in-chief of the International Journal of Water Resources Development.

The Lantern examines concussions

Concussions have become a hot-button topic all over the country. As science and medicine are continuing to discover how big an impact head injuries can have on someone’s day-to-day functions and future livelihood, sports organizations, and even Congress are beginning to take notice. Just this week, the NFL made its players aware of a new policy that will institute suspensions for its athletes for malicious helmet-to-helmet hits on a defenseless player. While once seen as a minor deterrent, the long-term effects associated with concussions have helped to paint a frightening portrait of what’s to come for our favorite athletes if they aren’t properly protected. Starting Monday, The Lantern will run a series on concussions beginning with part 1, prevention. Part 1 will be focusing on what can be done to better prepare oneself for avoiding a head injury, as well as offering a detailed look into why concussions are so hard to predict, who gets them, and what’s being done to protect athletes from having to worry about receiving one. Part 2, running Tuesday focuses on treatment. The story explains the dangers caused by head injuries both physically and mentally, what physicians and trainers look for in terms of symptoms, and what athletic trainers are doing to ensure that football players are ready to play after going through a concussion. Part 3, Second Impact Syndrome, focuses on a rare condition associated with a second head injury. SIS can lead to permanent disabilities and even death, but determining who’s susceptible to SIS is nearly impossible beforehand. Make sure to check out The Lantern in print or online for this exclusive look at concussions. read more
