Syrian children in state of “toxic stress”, Save the Children says
Millions of Syrian children could be living in a state of “toxic stress” due to prolonged exposure to the horrors of war, aid group Save the Children says.
The damage to an entire generation of children could soon become irreversible without immediate help, it adds.
The stress of war has led to increased bedwetting, self-harm, suicide attempts and aggressive behaviour among many children, according to a new report.
The findings are based on hundreds of interviews in Syria.
Save the Children says its study is the largest of its kind into the mental health and well-being of Syria’s children amid the war, which began in 2011 and has left more than 300,000 people dead.
Save the Children spoke to more than 450 people in seven of Syria 14 governorates as part of its study, including children of varying ages, parents, caregivers, social workers, aid workers and teachers.
• Almost all children and 84% of adults said that bombing and shelling was the number one cause of psychological stress for children
• Two-thirds of children have either lost a loved one, had their house bombed or shelled, or been injured as a result of the war, according to adults interviewed (some had suffered more than one of these traumatic events)
• 71% of interviewees said that children were increasingly suffering from frequent bedwetting and “involuntary urination” - symptoms of toxic stress and post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD)
• 48% of adults said they had seen children who had lost their ability to speak or begun to suffer from speech impediments since the war began
• Nearly half of those interviewed said children “regularly or always have feelings of grief or extreme sadness”
Hisham (not his real name) is a school teacher from the eastern city of Deir al-Zour, which is partially held by IS and partially by the government.
He, his wife and five children have now fled to the al-Hol refugee camp.
When the war first started, he said, children in Deir al-Zour found the sounds of shelling entertaining, like a game, until their relatives and people they know started dying.
Soon, they were spending all their time on the streets “because there was nothing to keep them occupied”, including schools.
His oldest child is nine, but “doesn’t even know how to add one plus one”.

Questão 76 91216UNIFESO 2015/1
“Isolation”, “consolidation” and “self-reliance” are different
terms used among Moscow´s political and business elite to
mean the same thing. In the face of international sanctions
occasioned by its support of the rebels in eastern Ukraine and its
 earlier annexation of Crimea, Russia is preparing to pull inward
and face a long period of diplomatic antagonism and economic
hardship. That process appears to be accelerating. On August
6th the Kremlin responded to Western pressure by announcing
that it will ban agricultural import from countries imposing
 sanctions on Russia.
By increasing his support of the rebels last month, Mr. Putin
has shown that he values his own understanding of Russia´s
historic destiny more than the economic well-being of his
country and its global reputation. He is making a risky bet that
 challenging the architecture of the post-cold-war order will reap
its own rewards and compensate for a drop in living standards.
Despite the crisis, such problems have not yet hurt Mr. Putin.
Indeed he is more popular than ever and his propaganda
apparatus is proving to be highly effective.
 Mr. Putin may be sending in Russian troops on the pretence
of a “humanitarian” operation. According to NATO, 20,000
Russian soldiers have amassed at the Ukrainian border. Even if
troops do not cross the border, the confrontation between
Russia and the West looks set to continue through the rule of
 President Vladimir Putin and, perhaps, beyond.

India is now both rich and poor, and this is the way it is likely to stay. The world’s largest economies in the future—India, China, Brazil—will contain large numbers of poor people, as India does today. It also has many super-rich, like Sunil Mittal, who in the 1970s was running a little factory in Punjab making bicycle parts. In 1995 Mittal launched a telecom company, Airtel, which now has 223 million subscribers across 19 countries, giving him an estimated net worth of $8 billion.
India’s economic rise is not eating American jobs, as I learned while researching my book. Trade happens in many directions, and the attraction of cheap labor overseas is only part of the story. When Airtel needed to expand fast during the early years of the cell-phone revolution, Mittal realized he would not be able to build infrastructure fast enough to keep up with demand. So he reverse-outsourced, giving work to foreign companies like Nokia, IBM, and Ericsson.
India’s contradictions are less confusing to Indians than they are to foreigners. New technology is not really regarded as alien or ―Western,‖ and tends to quickly become indigenous since India is a flexible and adaptive society. K. Radhakrishnan, the head of the Indian Space Research Organization, learned of his appointment while stripped to the waist, performing rituals as a pilgrim at a Hindu temple.
Women in India are usually portrayed as oppressed—and often they are—but in some circumstances can have opportunities that they would not have elsewhere. Leading financial institutions in India, like HSBC, RBS, JPMorgan Chase, ICICI, and UBS, are all run by women. Big political names like Sonia Gandhi are not alone. Mayawati Kumari, the chief minister of Uttar Pradesh, represents a grassroots revolution: one of nine children, she was raised on the edge of Delhi in a poor family of former ―untouchables.‖ She now rules a state with a population nearly equal to that of Brazil.
