|WELLINGTON Air Jordan Retro For Sale Free Shipping , Nov. 5 (Xinhua) -- Cancer, pesticides and healthcare training - international help in these fields could save lives in a diplomatically "forgotten" region of the world, says an organizer of a seminar in New Zealand next week.
The one-day seminar, organized by Massey University and the Dutch embassy, aims to raise awareness among the world's diplomats of the major health issues facing the Pacific island nations in Wellington on Nov. 11.
The organizers could have picked the region's biggest problem - climate change - but they decided to focus on the priority problems that could be solved "in a matter of years rather that decades Air Jordan Shoes For Sale Free Shipping ," director of Massey's Centre for Public Health Research Professor Jeroen Douwes told Xinhua.
"The problem is that a lot of the diplomats here in New Zealand do have some responsibility for the Pacific, but they often haven't got a sufficient understanding of the problems that are present there," Douwes said in an interview Thursday.
"The Pacific seems to have been forgotten to some degree, so getting it on the agenda, getting people to realize that there's a large group of islands where there are some major issues that need some support."
On the three issues to be addressed at the seminar - cancer rates Air Jordan For Sale Free Shipping , pesticide use, and training and education - Pacific island nations lacked the information and the ability to offset their worst effects.
The use of pesticides, which can severely reduce neuropsychological development among children exposed to their chemicals, required urgent attention.
"We do know from case studies - for instance in lagoons in Tonga - that there are elevated levels of pesticides that have been measured," said Douwes.
"We also know the ecology around those lagoons has been deteriorating over time and one of the potential causes is pesticide exposure - there are other exposures as well including heavy metals Jordan Retro For Sale Free Shipping ," he said.
"What we don't know is how much exposure people have, children around those areas and that's something we need to find out."
Some of the pesticides used in the Pacific were banned in Western countries.
"We also know that people who are using the pesticides are often not able to read the safety labels -- they may not necessarily use it according to the manufacturer's instructions which poses all sorts of risks," said Douwes.
The Pacific was also lacking information about cancer mortality and incidents because many nations had no systematic screening programs, such as those for cervical and breast cancer in developed nations, and they lacked cancer registries to track trends in the disease.
"We do know that people eventually develop those diseases Jordan Shoes For Sale Free Shipping , but because there's no screening they get picked up at a much later stage, when it may be too late for effective treatment," he said.
Douwes said he hoped the seminar would lead to a wider call to action for the international community to help.
"What we hope is that those diplomats will go back to their respective governments and then discuss the possibilities of making some funding available to make improvements in those areas," he said.
"It could be in the form of subsidizing people from the islands to participate in training for instance in New Zealand, Australia or other places Cheap Air Jordan Retro For Sale , but it could also mean they could fund potentially some projects where a cancer registry could be set up - and it's not just setting up the registry, it's also training the people to then maintain it and continue to do it after the experts have left."
International cooperation could lead to permanent improvements in Pacific healthcare, Douwes said.
PARIS, Nov. 1 (Xinhua) -- One day after stunning world No. 2 Roger Federer out of the Paris Masters quarterfinals, Canada's 23-year-old Milos Raonic reached his second Masters final by upsetting another big name Tomas Berdych here on Saturday.
The tenth-ranked Canadian picked up a break in the final game to edge the Czech 6-3 Cheap Air Jordan Shoes For Sale , 3-6, 7-5 in two hours eight minutes.
He sets up a title-vying clash against defending champion Novak Djokovic after the world No. 1 Serbian eased past 24-year-old Japanese Kei Nishikori in a late seminfinal.
The big server Raonic fired "only" 12 aces against Berdych but converted two of three break-point opportunities.
He's now leading the total standings of aces in this tournament on 75, 33 aces more than the second-placed Kevin Anderson, the 14th seed who's beaten in full sets by Berdych in the quarterfinals on Friday.
Leading 6-5 in the third set, Raonic needed only one breaking-serve to avoid a tiebreaker and he made it Cheap Air Jordan For Sale , while his world No. 5 opponent committed two double faults and another two unforced errors to give up the game.
Throughout the match, the 29-year-old Czech just broke Raonic once out of four attempts.
"There is not much to say," commented Berdych after match. "I just totally messed it up with the last game. It was definitely the worst game I ever played here this year."
"You have days like this that when things are going well, at the last moment everything is gone," he said.
The Canadian Cheap Jordan Retro For Sale , who has six ATP Tour titles so far in his entire career since turning pro in 2008, is still in search for a trophy at Masters and Grand Slam level. He's trailing 3-0 to Djokovic in their head-to-head record.
His giant-killing run in Paris, however, already secured him a spot in the ATP Finals slated on Nov. 9-16 in London, making him the first Canadian and the first player born in 1990s in the tournament.
"I knew I'd made it last night (Friday) and I didn't want there to be any doubt in my mind about a letdown Cheap Jordan Shoes For Sale ," said Raonic.
"So I put even more pressure on myself to make sure that the mental and physical energy was there," he added.
