LocalNews DAPD releases blind awareness DVD by: – May 25, 2012 The Dominica Association of Persons with Disabilities (DAPD) Inc. has released a four part DVD “Vision 2020 and Dominica: Lighting the Darkness” to commemorate activities for Blind Awareness Month as well as to coincide with the World Health Organization’s “Vision 2012: The Right to Sight” campaign.The Association has been observing the month of May as Blind Awareness Month and according to a press release issued on Friday, the DVD is one of the ways in which they hope to educate the public on the main causes of avoidable blindness.Vision 2020: The Right to Sight is the global initiative for the elimination of avoidable blindness, and is a joint programme of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the International Agency for the Prevention of Blindness (IAPB) with an international membership of NGOs, professional associations, eye care institutions and corporations.VISION 2020 seeks to eliminate the main causes of avoidable blindness in order to give all people in the world, particularly the millions of needlessly blind, the right to sight. It is estimated that up to 80% of the world’s blindness is avoidable, and that persons in Developing Countries like Dominica are heavily impacted by sight-related diseases conditions.The objective of the documentary according to a press release issued by the Association, is to provide information to the general public on the Vision 2020 program, create a greater awareness of visual impairment and persons living with this disability; and highlight the professional and creative abilities of persons living with impaired vision to again emphasize that “disability does not mean inability”.The Association saw the need to produce this thirty (30) minute documentary because the organization recognizes that not much is known locally about the Vision 2020 initiative, and that many myths and misconceptions prevail in our society about blindness. In addition Dominicans and other persons need to be made aware of how functional and independent blind and visually impaired persons are, or can be. It features local Ophthalmologist Dr. Hazel Shillingford-Ricketts and Nathalie Murphy, the Executive Director of the DAPD, and includes extensive footage of blind persons involved in varied activities which may surprise some persons.The documentary which was financed by the Australian High Commission and Optical Services Ltd of Dominica and produced by local Filmmaker Clement Richards of Bouzai Productions includes the following features; “At Home With the Murphy’s”, which provides a fascinating insight into the domestic activities of Blind and Visually Impaired persons; “Blind Cricket in Dominica” which illustrates that sporting activities are enjoyed by blind persons; and “Francis Speaks Frankly”, highlighting the thoughts and capabilities of Francis Charles from Grand Bay.The “Vision 2020 and Dominica: Lighting the Darkness” Documentary will be shown on Marpin and SAT Television and will also be available for viewing on the Internet at the DAPD Website (http://dapd.weebly.com); the DAPD Channel on LiveDominica TV (ldtv.alturl.com); and the Bouzai Productions Channel on YouTube.Dominica Vibes News Tweet 191 Views no discussions Share Sharing is caring!

London, United Kingdom | AFP |France and Arsenal legend Thierry Henry ended his association with the English Premier League club on Tuesday preferring to focus on his burgeoning media career.The 38-year-old former striker — part of the 1998 World Cup and Euro 2000 winning teams — could have coached the Gunners’ under-18 side but declined the offer when Arsene Wenger told him he would have to give up his lucrative Sky Sports TV contract for which he is reportedly paid £4 million ($5.2m, 4.7m euros) a year.Wenger, though, has several television contracts including with Qatari-owned beIN Sports.Henry, Arsenal’s all-time leading scorer with 174 goals in 254 appearances from 1999 to 2007, had been working with Arsenal youth players as part of his UEFA A Licence course.“I would like to thank Andries Jonker for offering me the chance to coach the U18’s @arsenal, which I was honoured to accept,” Henry tweeted on his Twitter account.“However I respect Arsene Wenger’s decision and I want to wish their manager Kwame Ampadu, the boys and everyone at the club all the best for the forthcoming season.” Busy day in LA yesterday #part1 great marketing meeting @beatsbydre with @OmarJohnson & @Ronny_Turiaf. #inspiring pic.twitter.com/JOxFIqPLK4— Thierry Henry (@ThierryHenry) March 30, 2016Another former Arsenal legend, Tony Adams, 49, is expected to return and take the role with the under-18s.Adams’s former central-defensive partner Steve Bould is Wenger’s assistant manager while another ex-player, Freddie Ljungberg, will work with the under-16s.Henry must now find a team to coach to complete his Pro Licence.Reviews of Henry’s performances as a pundit for Sky have been largely negative, but critics agreed that he was far better on the BBC during Euro 2016.Noted sports TV critic Giles Smith said in The Times newspaper on Tuesday: “One puzzle we’re nowhere nearer solving: how can the same Thierry Henry who is so open and engaging on the BBC be such a lump of wet wool on Sky Sports?”Share on: WhatsApp

The day-long event, presented by the University in cooperation with the Washington Dragon Boat Association, is free and open to the public. Some 750 participants will paddle their way through the annual Dragon Boat Races as part of the day’s activities. The paddlers are members of teams from universities, high schools, school districts, government agencies, community organizations and local businesses, hailing from Seattle to Portland.Dragon boat racing dates back to fourth-century China, commemorating famed poet Qu Yuan, who threw himself into the Milo River to protest the political turmoil and suffering of the people at that time. Today, dragon boat races are an opportunity to celebrate culture and community.“Friendly competition and having fun while learning about another culture’s time-honored traditions make the Dragon Boat Festival an eagerly anticipated event for the University and surrounding communities,” says Josephine Yung, Saint Martin’s vice president of international programs and development.Saint Martin’s University has been actively involved in education and cultural exchanges with China since 1995.

The races will begin at 9:45 a.m., and will consist of three heats and three divisions. The participating teams include the competitive division teams of Paddles of Fury and Wasabi Kraken; the intermediate teams of Seattle Flying Dragons and Sun Dragons Paddling Club; and the community teams of City of Tumwater and Apple Therapy Dragons. The festival will be broadcasted by 94.5 ROXY.In addition to the races, there will be Chinese traditional art demonstrations, martial arts performances and music.
