first_imgDuro IkhazuagbeAfter the free fall of the Super Eagles in FIFA Rankings in the last couple of months, Nigeria rallied back to step up three places in the September grading released yesterday by the world football governing body.Nigeria is now 64th in the world from the 67th ranking of the previous month. Eagles are now 14th in the continent. Football pundits were unanimous in giving the credit for the move to new Eagles new Franco-German coach, Gernot Rohr who claimed victory in-charge of the senior Nigerian team in a dead rubber clash with Tanzania in Uyo.Though it was a meaningless match as both countries failed to make the cut to the 2017 Africa Cup of Nations, it however afforded Rohr the chance to show his character to Nigerians with the victory.Interestingly, while Nigeria moved upward, Eagles opponents in the 2018 World Cup pairing like Zambia, Algeria and Cameroun all slipped in the September rankings.Zambia, who will host Nigeria next month in final round of the qualifying series for the World Cup, are now 92nd in the world after they occupied 91st position in August.The Indomitable Lions of Cameroun, dropped five places to 59th in the world and 11th in Africa while Algeria slipped to 35th in the world and lost top spot in Africa to Cote d’Ivoire.At the global level, despite the shifts up and down the ranking, Argentina and Belgium however remain fixed in first and second place respectively, cementing their positions at the summit of the World Ranking for another month.Elsewhere in the top five, Germany stepped up into the third spot while Colombia is fourth. Rejuvenated Brazil, under new coach Tite, moved into joint fourth place, thanks largely due to victories against Colombia and Ecuador in World Cup qualifiers.The large number of qualifying fixtures for continental competitions and the 2018 FIFA World Cup Russia in September reflected in significant movement.The next FIFA/Coca-Cola World Ranking will be published on October 20, 2016.

first_imgThe Annenberg School for Communication & Journalism collaborated with two private health foundations to create a fund supporting journalists reporting on subjects related to children’s health.Annenberg, the California Endowment and the Lucile Packard Foundation for Children’s Health created the fund, which offers a $2,000 to $5,000 grant to professional print, online or broadcast journalists.The projects designed by applicants should shed light on critical health or policy issues that affect children’s health in California, said Michelle Levander, program director of the California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowship.“For example, how kids make their way through the health care system, and [how] kids before wouldn’t have lived as long as they’re living now with the [same] level of severity of an ailment are rich areas for reporting,” Levander said.Levander said stories about children’s health have changed greatly as health care has changed, specifically the increased impact of chronic diseases on the lives of children.“What you see now is that the children who are severely ill have chronic diseases, but not necessarily fatal diseases,” Levander said. “They are very costly for the health care system and they are complex to manage.”Levander said one example is a decrease in schools providing full-time nurses for students.“One example is that every school used to have its own nurse, [and] that’s one arena that has been cut back greatly,” she said. “You also have kids who might have something like Type 1 diabetes where they need insulin, and so now who is going to administer the insulin? [This debate] made it really tough for the parents and the kids.”The California Endowment Journalism Fellowship has other programs that offer reporting stipends as well. This, however, is the newest award and is distinct for its focus on children’s health Levander said.“This is all offered under the offices of the California Endowment Health Journalism Fellowship and we are a professional education program at the Annenberg school, and we’re geared toward professional reporters and editors and we offer short training programs with mentoring over many months on story projects all focused around health,” Levander said.Levander said if students are accepted, they will participate in a fellowship program.“It’s a new fund that will fund reporting projects around children’s health issues,” Levander said. “[Professional journalists] will be competing to secure both a place in a weeklong national fellowship program and, based on the strength of their reporting proposal, to receive a reporting stipend for the project that they would embark upon.”last_img read more
