The sex slaves of al-Shabab

By Charlotte Attwood

BBC News

Mombasa

25 May 2017

http://www.bbc.com/news/magazine-40022953

.

.
When Salama Ali started investigating the disappearance of two younger brothers last year she made an awful discovery – not only were radicalised young Kenyan men leaving to join the al-Shabab militants in neighbouring Somalia, but women were being seized and trafficked by the group as sex slaves.

.

Salama’s search for information about her brothers had to be carried out quietly and confidentially, as any hint of a connection with the al-Qaeda-linked al-Shabab can arouse the suspicion of the security forces.

.

So she met discreetly with other women in Mombasa and the surrounding area, sharing stories and seeking information about male relatives who had vanished.

.

“We discovered there were lots of us,” Salama says.

.

But Salama also uncovered something very different – stories of women who had been taken to Somalia against their will.

.

The women were both young and old, from Christian and Muslim communities, from Mombasa and other parts of Kenya’s coastal region. They were usually promised high-paid work in another town or abroad, and then kidnapped.

.

Last September Salama trained as a counsellor and set up a secret support group for returning women. Word spread and soon women began seeking her out and asking to join the group.

.

Some arrived with babies, she says, some with HIV, and some with mental illness caused by their experiences. All are terrified to speak openly, because of the risk of being mistakenly identified as an al-Shabab sympathiser.

.

In a dark room with the curtains drawn, I meet this extraordinary group of women, who have a story that has never been told.

.

“Men used to come and have sex with me – I can’t tell you the number,” says one, shaking her head as she recounts her ordeal. “For those three years, every man was coming to sleep with me.”

.

“They’d bring two or three men for each woman every night,” says another. “We would be raped repeatedly.”

Some women were forced to become the “wives” of al-Shabab militants, it appears, while others were held as slaves in a brothel.

.

Al-Shabab is fighting to create a fundamentalist Islamic state in Somalia and has launched attacks on neighbouring countries, which have all sent troops to fight them as part of an African Union force.

.

snip

.

One new member of Salama’s group, Faith, has only recently escaped captivity.

.

She was 16 when she was approached by an elderly couple and offered a job in Malindi, further up the coast. Desperate for work, the next day she boarded a bus with 14 other passengers and all were given drugged water to drink.

.

“When we regained consciousness, there were two men inside the room,” Faith says. “They blindfolded us with black scarves. They raped us in that room.”

.
Drugged again, Faith woke up in a small clearing in a dark forest and was told she would be killed if she tried to escape.

.

Terrified, she spent the next three years alone cooking for a group of Somali men “with long long beards”.

.

She had also become pregnant, as a result of being raped, and had to deliver her own child alone in the forest.

New Advice to Move More After a Concussion

New Advice to Move More After a Concussion

Phys Ed

By GRETCHEN REYNOLDS

MAY 17, 2017

New York Times

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/17/well/move/ moving-more-after-a-concussion.html

When young athletes sustain concussions, they are typically told to rest until all symptoms disappear. That means no physical activity, reading, screen time or friends, and little light exposure, for multiple days and, in severe cases, weeks.

.

Restricting all forms of activity after a concussion is known as cocooning. But now new guidelines, written by an international panel of concussion experts and published this month in The British Journal of Sports Medicine, question that practice. Instead of cocooning, the new guidelines suggest that most young athletes should be encouraged to start being physically active within a day or two after the injury.

.

The brain benefits from movement and exercise, including after a concussion, says Dr. John Leddy, a professor of orthopedics at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo, and one of the co-authors of the new guidelines.

.

There has long been controversy, of course, about the best ways to identify and treat sports-related concussions. Twenty years ago, athletes who banged their heads during play were allowed to remain in the practice or game, even if they stumbled, seemed disoriented, or were seeing stars. Little was known then about any possible immediate or long-term consequences from head trauma during sports or about the best responses on the sidelines and afterward.

.

Since then, mounting evidence has indicated that sports-related concussions are not benign and require appropriate treatment. The question has been what these appropriate treatments should be.

.

In the early 2000s, dozens of the worlds premier experts on sports-related concussions started meeting to review studies about concussions, with plans to issue a consensus set of guidelines on how best to identify and deal with the condition.

.

The panel, called the Concussion in Sport Group, does not make formal clinical practice guidelines. But the groups findings do represent the latest thinking about sports concussions by the worlds experts, based on the newest published science, says Dr. Leddy, who is also medical director of the Buffalo Concussion Management Clinic.

.

In its 2012 guidelines the Concussion in Sport Group recommended broadly that if an athlete of any age was found to have a sports-related concussion, he or she should rest as completely as possible, remaining in a darkened room with little visual or physical stimuli, until all symptoms had gone away and did not return once the athlete began easing back into normal activities, which could be a week or more.

.

This approach was thought to promote recovery by minimizing brain energy demands following concussion, the authors write in the new statement.

.

But since then, a number of studies in animals and people with diagnosed concussions have indicated that prolonged physical rest may actually delay the brains recovery.

.

So this month, the group published a new set of guidelines that significantly revise the recommendation for physical rest. Now the advice is that after a concussion an the athlete should remain quiet for 24 to 48 hours, but then should begin to get up and move.

Exercise May Mediate Chronic Troponin Elevations, Obesity or Not

BALTIMORE, MD  Coming close to or meeting recommended levels of physical activity was associated with a smaller chance of having high levels of high-sensitivity cardiac troponin T (hs-cTnT)a surrogate for myocardial damagein a study of middle-aged and older people living in the community[1].

.

Being physically active was also linked with having a lower risk of heart failure, whether or not individuals were obese, in this analysis of data from the Atherosclerosis Risk in Communities (ARIC) study, which was published in the May 2017 issue of JACC: Heart Failure.

.

“We typically recommend physical activity as a means of losing weight or lowering blood pressure, but it seems . . . that if you are obese and you [engage in] physical activity, you have benefits irrespective of weight loss,” lead author Dr Roberta Florido (Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Baltimore, MD) told heartwire from Medscape.

.

“If you really reach those guideline-recommended levels, that’s when you have the most benefit, so it’s important to aim for those 75 minutes a week of vigorous [physical activity] or 150 minutes a week of a combination of moderate and vigorous physical activity,” she added.

.

The study also suggests that hs-cTnT could be used as a marker of cardiac health, according to Florido. “Maybe you could recommend physical activity for [patients] and monitor their troponin over time as a marker for this health behavior.”

.

This study adds to close to 20,000 publications in the past decade that have investigated the link between exercise and heart disease, Drs Tariq Ahmad and Jeffrey M Testani (Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, Connecticut) write in an accompanying editorial[2].

.

“Now we must get to the more difficult question: what are we going to do with this information?” they ask.

With new riches come new woes: As developing economies and their populations become wealthier, they are also becoming more overweight.

Considered to be a health issue of grave concern in countries such as Thailand, China, Indonesia and Malaysia, obesity presents a staggering obstacle to societal health. The dangers are well recited: increased risk of heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, kidney damage, widespread reductions in economic productivity and elevating health costs.

A new study published in April, however, has identified a certain protein that could be pivotal in the search for an exercise pill, and usher in a new range of pharmaceuticals tackling weight issues.

Asia’s rising obesity rates

Obesity rates are increasing across Asia. Between 2010 and 2014, both Malaysia and Indonesia saw a 33% increase in obese persons, while Thailand increased by 27%. In a 29-year-long study on rural Shandong of China, it found a 17-fold increase in obesity for boys and 11-fold increase for girls.

The obvious solution is exercise. But science is taking that to the next level. What if there was a pill that could do the exercise for you?

How would an “exercise pill” work?

According to the study presented at the American Physiological Societys annual meeting in late April, the key lies in controlling the production of a protein called myostatin.

Myostatin holds the function of inhibiting muscle growth: the more myostatin you have, the harder it is to gain muscle. Unsurprisingly, then, studies have shown that obese persons produce more myostatin than their leaner peers. But, what the study in the spotlight found was that by suppressing myostatin production in mice, not only did muscle mass dramatically increase, but also resulted in significant improvements in heart and kidney health markers.

New Advice to Move More After a Concussion

Phys Ed

When young athletes sustain concussions, they are typically told to rest until all symptoms disappear. That means no physical activity, reading, screen time or friends, and little light exposure, for multiple days and, in severe cases, weeks.

.

Restricting all forms of activity after a concussion is known as cocooning. But now new guidelines, written by an international panel of concussion experts and published this month in The British Journal of Sports Medicine, question that practice. Instead of cocooning, the new guidelines suggest that most young athletes should be encouraged to start being physically active within a day or two after the injury.

.

The brain benefits from movement and exercise, including after a concussion, says Dr. John Leddy, a professor of orthopedics at the Jacobs School of Medicine and Biomedical Sciences at the University at Buffalo, and one of the co-authors of the new guidelines.

.

There has long been controversy, of course, about the best ways to identify and treat sports-related concussions. Twenty years ago, athletes who banged their heads during play were allowed to remain in the practice or game, even if they stumbled, seemed disoriented, or were seeing stars. Little was known then about any possible immediate or long-term consequences from head trauma during sports or about the best responses on the sidelines and afterward.

.

Since then, mounting evidence has indicated that sports-related concussions are not benign and require appropriate treatment. The question has been what these appropriate treatments should be.

.

In the early 2000s, dozens of the worlds premier experts on sports-related concussions started meeting to review studies about concussions, with plans to issue a consensus set of guidelines on how best to identify and deal with the condition.

.

The panel, called the Concussion in Sport Group, does not make formal clinical practice guidelines. But the groups findings do represent the latest thinking about sports concussions by the worlds experts, based on the newest published science, says Dr. Leddy, who is also medical director of the Buffalo Concussion Management Clinic.

.

In its 2012 guidelines the Concussion in Sport Group recommended broadly that if an athlete of any age was found to have a sports-related concussion, he or she should rest as completely as possible, remaining in a darkened room with little visual or physical stimuli, until all symptoms had gone away and did not return once the athlete began easing back into normal activities, which could be a week or more.

.

This approach was thought to promote recovery by minimizing brain energy demands following concussion, the authors write in the new statement.

.

But since then, a number of studies in animals and people with diagnosed concussions have indicated that prolonged physical rest may actually delay the brains recovery.

.

So this month, the group published a new set of guidelines that significantly revise the recommendation for physical rest. Now the advice is that after a concussion an the athlete should remain quiet for 24 to 48 hours, but then should begin to get up and move.

It cannot be denied that childhood obesity is on the rise. Chew on the following statistics sourced from the Indian Journal of Endocrinology and Metabolism :

.

– Somewhere between 5.74 per cent and 8.82 per cent of schoolchildren in India are obese.

.

– In urban south India, 21.4 per cent boys and 18.5 per cent girls aged 13-18 are either overweight or obese.

.

Worldwide, in the year 2000, the International Obesity Task Force (IOTF) declared about 10 per cent of children aged 5-17 (about 155 million) were overweight, out of which two to three per cent (30 to 45 million) were obese.

.

Among the reasons for childhood obesity were ubiquitous processed foods, fast foods, and foods that don’t unfortunately love your child back as much as your child loves them. Add that to the fact outdoor activities have been replaced by digital ones, and you have a scenario where children are eating more calories than they can expend. But while we’ll get into ways of getting your child have better nutrition in subsequent articles, I just wanted to use this space to clear some misconceptions surrounding children and weight gain:

.

Chubby baby isn’t always a healthy one

.

There’s this notion that a chubby baby is a healthy one. But a baby only needs so much nutrition for growth and development, and the more fat a child stores, the greater the tendency to store fat as the child gets older. Keep checking in with your paediatrician to make sure the baby isn’t biting off more than he can chew.

.

An overweight child is prone to being an overweight adult
Overweight children are far more likely to grow up to be overweight adults. Comprehensive studies over the years have made clear the linkage between obesity in children and corresponding obesity in adults. Likewise, research has also shown the link between overweight children and sick adults.
