Many of them have also overcome significant challenges along the way,” said First Lady Frances Wolf. “That is exactly why Tom and I, along with the Governor’s Advisory Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs, are welcoming them to the Governor’s Residence today in celebration of Asian American and Pacific Islander Heritage Month. It is important for us to pause and recognize the profound contributions each of these individuals has made to Pennsylvania.”“According to the U.S. Census Bureau, the AAPI communities in Pennsylvania saw an 18.3 percent increase between 2010 and 2015, compared to an increase of only 1.3 percent for the total population in the commonwealth,” said Commission Chair Bibhuti Aryal. “This community is rapidly growing, and the 31 individuals being honored today are a great representation of the more than 400,000 AAPIs currently in Pennsylvania.“On behalf of the GACAPAA, we are honored to join First Lady Frances Wolf to recognize these 31 individuals for their outstanding contributions to the AAPI communities across Pennsylvania. These individuals deserve recognition, and we are honored to share their unique stories and accomplishments.”View Governor Wolf’s proclamation commemorating May 2018 as AAPI Heritage Month.05.01.18 – GACAPAA by Governor Tom Wolf on Scribd First Lady Frances Wolf Joins Advisory Commission on Asian Pacific American Affairs to Honor Pennsylvanians May 01, 2018center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

High rate of chlamydia in teens

first_imgStuff co.nz 26 June 2014“Staggeringly high” rates of chlamydia have been reported among New Zealand teenage girls.A report by Environmental Science and Research (ESR) was the first time data was collated from every laboratory in the country on people tested, as well as the number of new sexually transmitted infection (STI) cases found.It found 5064 cases of chlamydia per 100,000 population in teenage girls aged 15 and over.This was a “staggeringly high” rate, the report authors said.Because only six per cent of teenage boys were tested for STIs, compared to 35 per cent of teenage girls, the real number of men with chlamydia was likely higher.Sexually transmitted infections other than HIV/AIDS are not legally required to be reported to government authorities. Reports like ESR’s rely on voluntarily contributed data.http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/health/10202541/High-rate-of-chlamydia-in-teenslast_img read more

Kids avoid cabin fever at Boys & Girls Club

first_imgAddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThisAlpena, Mich. — Area schools were closed today. It’s the third day in a row that schools have kept their doors closed due to the extremely cold weather.That didn’t keep all kids from staying in their homes and getting cabin fever. The Boys & Girls Club of Alpena welcomed children in from these frigid conditions. Children played pop–a–shot, pool, and participated in obstacle courses. Plenty of activities were scheduled throughout the day to keep the kids engaged. Children like William O’Neill and Emma Jo Kruccynski enjoyed heading to the club today.“It keeps me entertained, and a lot of my friends come here,” said Kruccynski.During these conditions, it can be hard for children to stay active, but that was not the case today for all the kids in attendance.“Rather than staying home and watching TV, I could come here and go to the gym and play basketball, have some activities to do,” said O’Neill.Children can also get help with homework, grab a meal, and just have fun being a kid. With schools already canceling Thursday, more children can expect to stretch their legs and have fun at the Boys & Girls Club.“I was pretty happy because the past two days, they’ve [Boys & Girls Club] been closed, and there is really nothing else to do except just sit inside and watch TV because it’s so cold out,” said O’Neill.For more information, visit their website www.bgcalpena.org.AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to FacebookFacebookShare to TwitterTwitterShare to MoreAddThis Tags: alpena, alpena schools, Boys & Girls Club, Boys & Girls Club of Alpena, Children, Obstacle Courses, School Closings, schoolsContinue ReadingPrevious Photo of the Day for Wednesday, January 30Next Local doctor encourages eye exams to prevent Glaucomalast_img read more
