UN approves emergency grant for El Salvador as floods ravage Central America

Posted On Oct 11 2019 by

The UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said that a grant of $50,000 has been approved to support initial relief activities in El Salvador, where floods have claimed 32 lives and caused the evacuation of more than 32,000 people. The country appealed for international assistance on Sunday.The floods have also hit Costa Rica, Honduras, Guatemala, Nicaragua and Mexico, according to OCHA.In Guatemala, 29 people have died and an estimated 154,000 have been affected, while more than 38,000 people in Honduras have been stricken by the inundations, with 13 reported deaths.In Nicaragua, 133,858 people have been affected, mainly in the north and the Pacific coastal areas. Of particular concern in Nicaragua are reports of new cases of H1N1 viral infections that have prompted the UN World Health Organization (WHO) to send in a monitoring team.The Government has also requested international assistance and OCHA’s regional office will deploy extra staff to assist the UN Resident Coordinator and humanitarian country team, in addition to the a six-member team from the UN Disaster Assessment and Coordination (UNDAC) already there.Flood damage has been reported in Costa Rica and Mexico, but the rains have been less intense in those two countries. 19 October 2011The United Nations reported today it has approved an emergency cash grant for El Salvador and sent additional staff to the country as it beefs up efforts to help the Government respond to severe floods that have affected five other countries after heavy rainfall in Central America. read more

Posted On Oct 8 2019 by

Fishermen in the Kalpitiya Resort have found the dolphins killed over the past two days and the authorities believe that illegal fishing methods may have resulted in the mass killing. An investigation has been launched into the mass killing of dolphins in Kalpitiya, the Fisheries Ministry said today.Fishermen in Kalpitiya claimed that over 40 dolphins had been massacred by some fishermen. Deputy Minister of Fisheries Sarath Kumara Gunaratne said that the incident had been brought to the notice of the Fisheries Ministry. The Army, Navy and Police have launched a joint investigation into the incident.“We have arrested four suspects since Wednesday and more suspects are going to be taken into custody by next week,” Chairman of the National Aquatic Resource Research and Development Agency, Dr. Sayuru Samarasundara said.

JPMorgan and Wells said that housing had turned a corner but Citi

Posted On Oct 6 2019 by

NEW YORK, N.Y. – Citigroup isn’t as enthusiastic as its peers about a comeback in the housing market.On Friday, executives at Wells Fargo and JPMorgan Chase declared that the long-struggling market had turned a corner. On Monday, Citigroup’s top number-cruncher said he wasn’t so sure.In a conference call with reporters after the bank released its quarterly earnings, chief financial officer John Gerspach cautioned that recent history is littered with upturns in the housing market that proved short-lived.He said that despite a few signs of stabilization in the housing market, there are “still some rather significant challenges to be faced.” He warned against predictions with the uncertain presidential election and federal budget still casting a shadow.“I don’t use phrases like ‘turn the corner,’” Gerspach said, referring to statements Friday from JPMorgan CEO Jamie Dimon and Wells Fargo finance chief Tim Sloan. “I have difficulty seeing corners sometimes, so I’m not sure what corner we may have turned.”“There’s still a question in my mind about whether we’ve got a strong enough economy to continue sustaining the housing market,” he added.Citigroup reported earnings that beat analysts’ expectations, after stripping out one-time items like a big write-down it had to take because it got less money than it had hoped when it negotiated to sell its stake in its retail brokerage.Investors were pleased with the results and sent the stock up more than 5 per cent Monday, rising $1.91 to close at $36.66.Citigroup said that revenue was helped by mortgage refinancing, the same as at Wells Fargo and JPMorgan. Some of that business, however, is fueled by government programs to encourage refinancing. And the banks don’t expect the refinancing boom to continue once interest rates start to rise, which could be as early as next year.Mortgage originations jumped 56 per cent at Wells Fargo and 29 per cent at JPMorgan compared with a year ago. At Citi, they fell 15 per cent.Mortgages, and the securities they were bundled into, were a scourge during the financial crisis, felling storied financial institutions that made loans that were too risky or bet that securities made of subprime mortgages would keep rising.The banks’ mortgage units are still a magnet for lawsuits and regulatory charges. In August, Citigroup agreed to settle lawsuits from shareholders who said the bank didn’t properly warn them of its exposure to risky subprime debt.Citigroup also reported Monday that it had to set aside more money in case it has to buy back more mortgages from investors who bought them in the run-up to the financial crisis, and now feel ripped off. Gerspach said the bank was seeing “increased activity” in so-called repurchase demands from Freddie Mac, the government-sponsored mortgage giant.Overall, the bank trimmed about 2 per cent of its jobs, dropping to 262,000 employees from 267,000. It spent less on advertising and marketing, but more on technology and communication.Citigroup is still trying to patch its reputation after the financial crisis nearly brought it to collapse. After years of empire-building, the bank has been selling units and trying to become more efficient and more manageable.CEO Vikram Pandit is still an ardent defender of the big-bank model, even though the former CEO, Sandy Weill, went on CNBC in July and said big banks should be broken up. It was a surprising change of heart for the dealmaker who built Citi into a behemoth.Citi also has to figure out how to pay top executives without alienating its shareholders. Citi paid Pandit nearly $15 million for 2011, about half in option awards, but shareholders in the spring said they disagreed with the payout.Gerspach declined to comment on how the bank might change executive pay next year, saying that was the board’s purview.Excluding one-time items, net income was $3.3 billion. That amounted to $1.06 per share, beating the 96 cents predicted by analysts polled by financial data provider FactSet. Analyst predictions generally exclude one-time charges and gains.Revenue, excluding the special charges, was $19.4 billion. That beat expectations of $18 billion.The bank wrote down $4.7 billion after agreeing to sell its portion of retail brokerage Morgan Stanley Smith Barney for less than it had hoped. Including that and other one-time charges, net income was $455 million, and revenue was $14 billion.Without the special charges, net income and revenue were both up. With them, net income and revenue were down significantly. by News Staff Posted Oct 15, 2012 7:12 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email JPMorgan and Wells said that housing had turned a corner, but Citi says not so fast read more


World Trade Organization sides with US in auto trade dispute with China

Posted On Oct 4 2019 by

GENEVA – The United States has scored a victory before the World Trade Organization in a case that challenged China’s imposition of penalty tariffs on the sale of $5 billion in U.S.-made vehicles in China.A WTO panel ruled Friday that China’s tariffs violated international trade rules. The ruling came during a week when the U.S. Justice Department charged five Chinese military officers with hacking into U.S. companies’ computer systems to steal trade secrets.The two developments pointed to intensifying trade tensions between the world’s two biggest economies.The dispute panel for the Geneva-based WTO sided with the United States in its ruling. It said China had acted “inconsistently” in imposing the anti-dumping requirements in violation of its WTO commitments.U.S. officials said China withdrew the higher tariffs in December in response to indications that it would lose the WTO case. Officials said they pushed forward with the case to establish the precedent that China’s actions violated global trade rules.The WTO allows countries to raise import duties to offset improper subsidies and dumping. But the complaint the Obama administration filed in 2012 accused Beijing of improperly imposing the anti-dumping duties.The administration contended that China’s tariffs were imposed in retaliation for penalty tariffs the administration had levied on Chinese-made tires.China had defended the duties on U.S.-made vehicles as legal under international rules. It asserted that the administration’s bailouts of General Motors Corp. and Chrysler amounted to unfair government subsidies. China’s duties affected cars and sport-utility vehicles with engine capacities of 2.5 litres or larger.U.S. Trade Representative Michael Froman said the WTO ruling would benefit America’s nearly 850,000 auto workers. China has become America’s second-largest auto export market. In 2013, the United States exported $64.9 billion of autos, with $8.5 billion of that total going to China.Froman said the penalty duties, ranging up to 21.5 per cent, hit $5.1 billion of America’s auto exports to China last year. The penalties covered such popular models as the Jeep Grand Cherokee, the Cadillac Escalade and the Buick Enclave.“This is the third time that the United States has prevailed in a WTO dispute challenging China’s unjustified trade remedies,” Froman told reporters in Washington.The two other disputes involved U.S. specialty steel products and chicken broiler parts.The Obama administration has been more aggressive in filing WTO cases against China than the Bush administration was and has stepped up pressure in other areas of trade. The U.S. trade gap with China, which is at a record high, is its largest with any country.Besides this week’s indictment of five Chinese officials on hacking charges, Treasury Secretary Jacob Lew flew to Beijing last week for talks that covered U.S. concerns that China’s currency has been falling in value this year. American manufacturers contend that China’s renminbi is as much as 40 per cent undervalued against the dollar, giving Chinese companies an unfair trade advantage.Rep. Sander Levin, D-Michigan, said Friday’s ruling was a “significant victory in the fight against China’s practice of retaliating and intimidating those who dare to stand up to it.”Still pending before the WTO is a second auto case the United States filed in 2012. It challenges export subsidies that China provides for its own car and auto parts manufacturers.U.S. officials said discussions with China were still ongoing in that case. Under WTO rules, both countries must try to resolve the trade dispute through negotiations before a WTO panel convenes to hear the case.___Crutsinger reported from Washington. by John Heilprin And Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted May 23, 2014 3:30 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email World Trade Organization sides with US in auto trade dispute with China over export subsidies read more


Spate of deadly xenophobic violence in South Africa draws UN concern

Posted On Oct 2 2019 by

However, Adrian Edwards, a spokesperson for the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) said the agency remains concerned about the attacks, which have also led to displacement of more than 5,000 foreigners, some of whom included refugees and asylum-seekers.“The attacks in KwaZulu-Natal province began in late March following an apparent labour dispute involving South African and foreign workers and the latest population movements came on top of displacement that had taken place in January as a result of similar incidents in Soweto, near Johannesburg in Gauteng province,” said Mr. Edwards. “South Africa’s President Jacob Zuma told parliamentarians on 16 April that refugees and asylum-seekers would be accorded support in line with international law and protocols, with the support of the UNHCR,” he added.Yesterday, during the daily briefing ay UN Headquarters in New York by the spokesperson for the UN Secretary-General, questions were raised about the incident, to which Stéphane Dujarric replied that the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) remains concerned about such incidents.Such attacks date back as far as 2008, he said, in communities that are poor, marginalized and in situations of vulnerability. Mr. Dujarric said the Human Rights Commissioner’s Office encouraged the South African Government to accelerate enactment of legislation against hate crimes, to hold those responsible for acts of violence and violations of human rights accountable and to formulate future policy responses to the situation of migrants that conform to international standards. read more

Going Back to the Well How to Get More Funding

Posted On Sep 14 2019 by

first_imgSome savvy buyers were also circling Western Interiors & Design, thinking its investors might want to sell the magazine (which generates between $5 million and $10 million in annual revenue, according to Matthews) at a favorable price. “When it became clear that there were some offers to buy the magazine, the investors said, ‘No, we believe in the magazine, we know it’s going to pay off when we get through this dip in the economy and any sale price will be much higher,’” says Matthews.Instead, Western Interiors has managed to convince its investors to put another “several million dollars” into the magazine. “They realize it’s not the end of the magazine world, it’s a dip in the economy and they need to help us through it,” says Matthews. “We sat down with them and explained it. They knew we are going to have to be funded to withstand this year. We are going to prosper in the near future—they’re not in this for sheer pleasure. These guys want to sell the magazine some day and they chose not to right now.”Where to GrowWestern Interiors is putting several initiatives into place to try to spark spending, including live events. The magazine last month hosted a VIP Lounge at the 2009 Sundance Film Festival and will host an “outdoor chic” rooftop event in New York City in May. The magazine is also gearing up for its biggest issue of the year (April/May), featuring the Gold List, an annual list of interior designers, architects and landscape designers featured in throughout the year the magazine. In 2007, that issue was Western Interior’s first to break 100 ad pages. In 2008, the issue slipped to 85 ad pages and this year Western Interiors is looking for ways to keep spending up. “This year we’re going to put a little more muscle behind it by polling these designers and architects,” says Matthews. “Consumers want to know what brands they are specifying and we’ll publish those later in the year.”The magazine also introduced a “Power Buy” which offers price breaks to advertisers who commit to at least six ads per year.Online, SIPs Will Carry More of the LoadWestern Interiors will continue to invest in editorial, including a high level of photography. The magazine is also building out its Web site and will launch a new product this spring called Modern Dream Homes, the first in a planned series of high-end special-focused publications. “We hope that online will be at least 10 percent of the revenue by the end of 2010,” says Matthews. “This additional funding will help cover the shortage of revenue from any lost ad pages during this touch economic time.” Recapitalization will determine the fate of many magazines in 2009, including those that were healthy through much of 2008. Green magazine Plenty shuttered last month, with publisher Mark Spellun saying that the magazine’s financing had simply “dried up.” Mediabistro reported that Evening Post Publishers Co. would stop publishing Garden & Gun as of January 31, while Garden & Gun publisher Rebecca Darwin said the magazine is “actively engaged in discussion with investors.”In 2007, Western Interiors & Design was the leader in ad page growth in a category that included heavyweights such as Architectural Digest and Elle Décor. But by late 2008, with the economy plunging toward recession and shelter and home magazines among the many categories feeling the brunt, the title knew it needed additional funding to weather the storm. “It’s not like we weren’t able to make payroll. We didn’t have to close anything or lay anyone off,” says publisher Jennifer Matthews. “We’ve been streamlining and we’ve dropped our paper costs, although not the quality.” Sell or Invest?last_img read more

Aaron Rodgers deserves better from the Packers

first_imgAaron Rodgers deserves better from the Packers.After the Packers lost to the Falcons, Aaron Rodgers made the comment that the Packers didn’t need to rebuild, they just need to reload.Instead of adding any significant pieces that could put them over the top, Green Bay has signed some marginal players, and lost key contributors like guard T.J.

Lean Linear City features pedestrianbased communi

Posted On Aug 10 2019 by

first_imgLean Linear City features pedestrian-based communities oriented around linear local and regional transportation systems, fostering quality of life through urban mobility and access, while minimizing consumption of land and material resources of all kinds, including energy resources. Lean Linear City: Arterial Arcology outlines Soleri’s comprehensive approach to defining and controlling growth patterns of existing and future cities to produce more sustainable, equitable, and robust urban forms. The book graphically illustrates how Lean Linear’s logistics are designed to cohere, enhancing the urban experience, minimizing waste, taking advantage of passive energy opportunities, and defining “smart” boundaries in relation to surrounding agricultural and natural lands. As urban planners face the key issues of the twenty-first century—ever expanding populations, rapid urbanization, limited global resources, increased demand for food production, and protection of a fragile environment—Soleri proposes that logistically defined “arterial” cities may prove to be a viable option for sustainable urban development.[image: YoungSoo Kim & text: Lissa McCullough] January 23, 2012We are delighted to announce the Cosanti Press publication of LEAN LINEAR CITY: ARTERIAL ARCOLOGY. This compact book (7″ x 7″, 196 pages, fully illustrated in color) is the first full-length publication to present architect Paolo Soleri’s Lean Linear City concept, a “traveling” city that aims to optimize logistics to the extent feasible, in part by being fully integrated with its vital transportation corridor. Soleri, who is known for his theory of “arcology” (architecture + ecology), proposes this “arterial” arcology on analogy with how arteries support the essential life-functions in an organism.The book can be purchased on our web-site with the following link LEAN LINEAR CITY: ARTERIAL ARCOLOGY. [image: YoungSoo Kim, Tomiaki Tamura & text: Lissa McCullough] from introduction in the book:Welcome to an important exploration of architectural and cultural thinking and design. Based on the pioneering work of Paolo Soleri, what you are about to read unfolds a collaborative new investigation of Soleri’s idea for a Lean Linear City. In these pages architecture and ecology confront the vastness of the North American continent to create a complex and immanent solution for the future of the city. And this book, besides examining the design and methodology for creating an event of such enormous complexity, also describes why we must do it. Humans want to connect: to each other, to goods, services, ideas. It is why most of us alive on the planet now live in cities: the city is the best instrument we have devised to make these connections. But we also want need to connect to nature, to the earth itself and to that bit of the earth‚s ecology we do not control. And we need to design ways to do that without overwhelming what remains of the earth‚s natural systems, habitats and landscapes. [image: YoungSoo Kim & text: Jeff Stein]This book describes a new parameter for design: leanness. It is based on a clear understanding of how life on earth functions. As the authors point out, because of our population numbers, because of the attitude we have taken until now about how to design and grow our cities, we are in some difficulty as a species. And we have placed every other species on the earth into some difficulty, too. A reformulated, lean design, the kind described in these pages, could very well be how we get out of it. Architecture historian Christian Norburg Schulz points out that humans are wanderers by nature, always on the way. On the other hand, when we do settle and identify with a certain place, the result is architecture. ARTERIAL ARCOLOGY shows how we can reconcile this dichotomy of human life on earth, the dialectic of departure and return ˆ path and goal ˆ that describes our place in the world. While our current urban culture has been able to provide the civilizing comforts of buildings, possessions and literacy, it has yet to integrate these static comforts with the nomad in us, the part that is in love with movement. To relate architecture and cities to their citizens, to an audience in motion, designers must make architecture work harder, designing buildings ˆ and cities – to be leaner, more like living things, integral parts of a living landscape, able to engage human senses beyond the mere visual. This emphasis on lean urban performance while carrying forth a new understanding of urban form characterizes the work of ARTERIAL ARCOLOGY. This book comes to us at a watershed moment, when the very basis of culture and economy, and thus our relationship with each other and the cosmos, is being re-thought and requires re-thinking. A Japanese term for this is Hashi: the end of one thing and beginning of another. Hashi can be a bridge, chopsticks, or a book like this. ARTERIAL ARCOLOGY, in this Hashi moment, presents some of the most important designs yet made for understanding the coming relationship of people, place and planet. I hope its publication will spark action among its readers, so that we can take our rightful place as humans on the earth, a species among many others, truly extra-ordinary in what we are becoming.Welcome to the real work of the next generation, and to the lean, linear blueprint for how we can go about that work.Jeff Stein AIA, President, Cosanti Foundation [image: YoungSoo Kim and Adam Nordfors, text: Jeff Stein]last_img read more


Finance ministry accused of not respecting the public good

Posted On Aug 9 2019 by

first_imgThe war of words over the secondment of a finance ministry employee to the European Investment Bank (EIB) rose a notch on Tuesday when an audit office report accused the ministry of putting the interest of the employee ahead of the public good.Finance Minister Harris Georgiades responded that the report was full of “unsubstantiated and offensive arguments and unacceptable insinuations”.The audit office report came after a probe into the circumstances under which finance ministry employee Savia Orphanidou came to be seconded to the EIB offices in Luxembourg.A draft report of the case, leaked to the press on Tuesday, slammed Georgiades for the handling of the case, and for his “unacceptable reference” in an earlier letter to the audit office that only the EIB could answer as to the procedure for hiring Orphanidou “as if the finance ministry had no involvement”.Orphanidou was seconded on March 1 to the EIB’s offices in Luxembourg for two years. According to the agreement, Orphanidou will remain on the payroll of the ministry and will continue to receive her salary and related staff benefits, while she will also receive a special allowance at the level of €50,000 per year which will be contributed by EIB.The report argues that the fact no announcement was made about the posting so that other civil servants could express interest, was not in line with the general principles of administrative law and was in violation of a cabinet decision that stipulates that available job posts should be announced by the Public Service Commission (PSC).According to the report, the finance ministry informed the audit office that the secondment of a Cypriot official to the EIB had been a standing need but that an announcement to staff was never issued. The ministry was instead asking individuals if anyone was interested but no one had stepped up.In the case of Orphanidou, the report said, she had been dealing with issues concerning the EIB while working at the ministry, and she had expressed interest in the post. The ministry informed the EIB and consultations began as to employment terms.Georgiades, the report said, had referred the audit office to the procedures followed by other EU institutions as regards the secondment of national experts.“Our service however, does not agree with the finance minister. The process of selection of national experts is carried out by the EU institutions but is open and transparent and the terms of employment are defined in advance. In this instance that was not the case,” it said.It added that similarly misleading was the minister’s statement that he allegedly could not apply an open selection procedure.“If the very favourable secondment conditions […] were made known, there would be interest from others, perhaps more appropriate and/or more qualified officials of the ministry of finance, and/or other ministries,” it said.The basic criterion ought to be ensuring public interest, the report said, and not the personal aspirations of any employee.In response, Georgiades said that Auditor-general Odysseas Michaelides used arguments that were baseless and were aimed at justifying attempts targeting a civil servant.Commenting on the allegation that no open selection procedure took place, Georgiades said that the law does not provide for such a thing, “nor could it apply in this case since the decision was made after the official herself had expressed interest in the EIB, with the consent, of course, of the finance ministry which considers that, with that posting, its needs are met”.He added that Orphanidou’s selection was made “not by the finance ministry, but by the EIB with the consent of the ministry”.The probe was initiated following a report by Akel MP Irini Charalambidou to Michaelides in March. Prior to the report, Charalambidou had called Georgiades in parliament to explain as to how Orphanidou was chosen to be seconded. The MP also raised an issue as to the fact that Orphanidou had not obtained permission from the PSC for being a member of Disy’s political office.The latter sparked an earlier public disagreement between Georgiades and Michaelides over the interpretation of the 2015 law allowing civil servants on the A8 pay scale and above to take up party posts as long as they obtain permission from the PSC first.Attorney-General Costas Clerides recently ruled that any civil servant who held any post in any political party from 1991 to 2015 had been in violation of the law, and likewise those civil servants on the A8 pay scale or higher since 2015 holding party posts without permission from the PSC.You May LikeClassmates.comLook For Any High School Yearbook, It’s FreeClassmates.comUndoFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

classmates in the high school gym for an impromptu assembly"It’s not the ideal way to start homecoming week" Dan Buikema Faith’s guidance director told the 1100 students who listened in silenceHe

the earth rejoice He wraps Himself in light and darkness tries to hide" sang students sitting on the bleachers around Shae who wanted to join but just couldn’t get the words outIt struck Shae in her

her shinsMarie pulled intoFaith’s parking lot Tuesday morning and saw what she’d seen every morning for years: other kids walking talking laughingShe began to sobMarie used to be one of them she thought doing and saying normal things believing everything was okay But now nothing felt OKMarie hurried to her first class AP English and immediately had to leave"I don’t know if I can do this" Marie texted her mother A day earlier the teenager had spent hours at home watching news coverage of the shooting on TVIn her next class the teacher who hadn’t been told that Marie was at the festival asked whether she could stay after school to take a test she’d missedSuddenly Marie was stricken with the sense that everything she’d cared about most – grades the SAT admittance into a top-tier college with an equestrian program – didn’t matter"No" she said "I can’t take it after school"Later in a hallway she and Summer talked about what was happening to them"It feels so weird walking

mom"I need you to come with me" Marie saidWhen they walked back down the car was gone She didn’t understand If it had pulled away she would have heard it Marie insisted she had seen someoneBut now came a more unsettling possibility Maybe Marie thought it had all been in her mindShae sat on the ground outside her class considering the right words to say as a camera was positioned in front of herShe’d been asked to describe her experience for a video the school planned to show during that week’s chapel services Shae wore a long-sleeve plaid shirt and her hair in braided pigtails because it was Faith’s "Wilderness Explorer Day" in honor of the Disney movie "Up" the theme for homecoming"I know that I got out of that situation because God was with us and I definitely know that He’s still with me now" she said in the interview "I have moments in the day that I really just feel a struggle and I just feel like I can’t – like I just want to hole up in myself and not deal with any of it but I know that I can’t do that"Shae had never not dealt with things She was an honor-roll regular and editor in chief of the Crusader Chronicle Faith’s student newspaper In third grade her mother recalled Shae came home one day complaining that the other kids didn’t take their assignments seriously enoughShe labored to stay composed all week and tried to help Delaney who’d hidden with her in the Luxor restroom do the sameWhen she was asked to write a first-person account for the Chronicle about their escape Shae gave it this headline: "I’m not a victim I’m a survivor"She couldn’t bear to watch though when a teacher played a TV interview with Natalia and Gianna in class that included clips of the bloodshed As Shae looked down at her desk she noticed classmates staring"Shae stop reliving it" whispered a friend sitting next to herIn a chapel service when a student yelled at the speaker she clutched the arms on her chair and sat up panicked "I need to get out of here" Shae thought before a friend told her that it was part of the presentationShe left school early one afternoon to be with her mother who had worked on the investigation most of the week but wanted to take Shae to get a manicure Elena sat on their couch and Shae laid her head on her mom’s lap for a few minutes before they headed to the nail salon"How are you" Elena asked in the car"Everyone keeps telling me that I’m so strong" she said "but I just don’t feel strong right now"Elena told her there was nothing wrong with that and then they went inside the salon and Shae got her fingernails painted periwinkle blue to match a homecoming dress she no longer wanted to wearIt was Friday morning the beginning of Natalia’s fifth day in the hospital and a doctor had just pulled the chest tube out from between her ribsAll week she and Gianna had been the focus of unrelenting attention The twins had done interviews on "Good Morning America" and "Inside Edition" They’d heard from producers for "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" and "Dr Phil" ABC’s "20/20" had even flown Dean McAuley the firefighter who had helped Natalia get to the hospital back from Seattle to orchestrate an emotional on-camera reunion between the twoAmid all of it – the hundreds of messages on Facebook the stream of well-wishers the repeated questions about what it felt like to witness and face death – the twins remained unflinchingly positiveThe online conspiracy theorists fixated on their smiles insisting it was evidence that their stories weren’t true But Natalia had been that way – "#keepsmiling" she’d written next to a photo of herself in the hospital – since she was little Her outlook was born of a compassion so deep that when she returned from a ninth-grade mission trip to Mexico she announced to her parents that she wanted to become a traveling nurse move to Africa and treat victims of EbolaTwenty-two hours after being shot still in the intensive care unit Natalia wrote on Instagram: "I am so blessed to be alive at this moment of time"Now though on Friday the last of the TV cameras had left and with them went the distractions Natalia finally had time to consider what she might miss during her last homecoming weekend before graduationWith the chest tube out she had only one question for her doctor: "Can I go to the football game tonight"Two hours later her sister rolled on an electric scooter through a tunnel of pompom-shaking cheerleaders and into the gymnasium where hundreds of students gathered for a pep rally stood to applaud"We would like to dedicate this assembly and the rest of our cheer season to Gianna and Natalia Baca" a girl announced on a microphoneThen the cheer team performed and the lip sync competition began The freshmen went first followed by the sophomores and juniors and at last the seniorsBetween songs the narrators recounted highlights of "our Faith Lutheran adventure": the first dances and dates cars and crushesNatalia knew the entire lip-sync routine and had so looked forward to performing with her classmates one more time to hitting her mark as the seniors romped to the final song "We’re All in This Together"Instead she watched on FaceTime from her hospital room blowing into a deep-breathing device hoping that her lung wouldn’t collapse so that maybe she could make the football game- – -The prayer had been said and the moment of silence had been held and now between the stadium’s bleachers teenagers lining a pathway held up their phones ready to recordFaith’s high school principal Scott Fogo waved up at the public-address booth and then pointed at who was behind him: Gianna driving her scooter and Natalia less than five hours removed from the hospital in a wheelchair being pushed by their dad"Ladies and gentlemen will you direct your attention to the 35-yard line" the announcer said over the loudspeaker his voice rising "Welcome back Natalia and Gianna Baca"The crowd stood and clapped as Faith’s cheerleaders surrounded the girls"We love you Bacas" they chanted in unisonThe principal eyes watery watched from a few feet away He wore a maroon T-shirt that on the front showed an image of the girls above the hashtag #BacaStrong and on the back included a verse from 2 Corinthians about God’s comfort in times of troubleFogo bald bespectacled and known among students for his reassuring hugs had given out more of them that week than any other in his career He and his staff had done all they could think of – bringing in comfort dogs calling traumatized students at home when they missed classes prepping teachers for the inevitable questions and breakdowns arranging for three counselors to attend the dance just in case"I don’t know what I say to my kid" parents had told Fogo so he helped set up a meeting for them with a Harvard-trained psychiatristHe had even researched the aftermath of the Columbine High School rampage and discovered that a student who’d witnessed the violence hanged himself a year laterBy Friday he and Faith’s counselors had already begun to work on a plan for the months ahead when they knew things would return to normal for many in the community but might not – then or ever – for at least 10 of their kidsFogo waited as Natalia’s dad parked her wheelchair next to Gianna The twins faced the cheer team they co-captained and in front of Natalia were the personalized black boxes that the girls stood on during games Neatly stacked on top of hers was a megaphone and two gold pompoms "Natalia" it read "Varsity Cheer 2018"A tear tumbled down her cheek and when the local TV journalists noticed it they crept closer and pointed their lenses Then out came the microphones and back came her smile"I haven’t seen a big crowd in like a week so it was very overwhelming" she told the reporters "This school is family to me so I didn’t want to miss it"They backed away and she eased out of the wheelchair"Go Crusaders Go" her teammates shoutedShe leaned against the fence behind her lightly bouncing one foot to the rhythm and tapping her hands together Natalia knew she would never cheer at another football game"Go Crusaders Go" she mouthed in silence as her smile disappearedBeyond the end zone Shae and Delaney had just come into the stadium both wearing #BacaStrong shirts They walked toward the far side of the field to watch friends on the dance team the two of them holding hands just as the girls had done five nights earlier when they fled the concert"I just don’t want to lose her in the crowd" Delaney saidA dark-haired classmate in a polo shirt stopped to give Shae a hug He’d heard she was at the festival"That’s crazy You’re okay though right" the teen asked Shae who to him looked no different"Yeah" she said and nodded because the real answer was too hard to explainShae and Delaney spotted Summer She’d come without Marie who had finally made it through a day of classes but decided not to attend the game or any of the homecoming weekend activitiesThe girls compared how they were feeling"I’m actually good today because I didn’t go to school" Summer saidDelaney thought she’d made progress too"I only cried once" she said"Guys I took off my bracelet" Summer told them referring to the purple Route 91 Harvest band"I need to take mine off" Shae responded"I’m leaving it on" Delaney said"Even for tomorrow" Summer asked referring to the dance "It’s kind of a constant reminder""It’s just like a – I’m lucky I was lucky" Delaney said "It doesn’t make me sad anymore"Shae glancing down at her left wrist said nothingNatalia limped over the curb onto the sidewalk and as the fading sunlight cut through the palm trees on Saturday evening her iridescent white dress flashed shades of pink and blue just as she’d imaginedBut Natalia one hand
