NAIROBI http://www.teammlbdodgersshop.com/authentic-jackie-robinson-dodgers-jersey/ , May 29 (Xinhua) -- International researchers on Monday launched a new computing technology to fight hunger and malnutrition in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA).


The researchers from the International Centre for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT), a global agricultural research partnership, said the Nutrition Early Warning System (NEWS) will be able to process and detect signs of food shortages long before they become a crisis.


Speaking during the launch in Nairobi, Mercy Lung'aho, the Nutritionist and Research Scientist at CIAT said the technology is based on a technique known as machine learning where computers track complex and constantly changing data in order to learn and make predictions.


"The technology will use big data approaches to process large volumes of information from multiple sources in detecting early signs of food shortages already affecting South Sudan and looming in Nigeria and Somali http://www.teammlbdodgersshop.com/authentic-hyun-jin-ryu-dodgers-jersey/ ," Lung'aho told journalists.


Lung'aho said the technology will help scientists and governments move away from reactive to proactive responses to crises and foster resilience in the agriculture and food systems across Africa in collaboration with both the public and private sectors.


NEWS will initially focus on boosting nutrition in SSA before targeting vulnerable communities globally by responding to triggers and allowing relief agencies, donors and governments to make informed decisions.


"NEWS applies this technology to search for early signs of potential crop failures, drought, rising food prices and other factors that trigger food shortages," Lung'aho added.


Kenya's Cabinet Secretary for Environment and Natural Resources Judy Wakhungu welcomed the initiative saying the technology will go a long way in developing resilience to the impacts of climate change http://www.teammlbdodgersshop.com/authentic-howie-kendrick-dodgers-jersey/ , soil erosion and decline in the health of ecosystem.


"Kenya has been gripped by prolonged drought that has left 2.7 million people in dire need of food while malnutrition has also increased in recent years," Wakhungu said.


She said with the increasing weather extremes, it is vital that Africa develops resilience within communities to cope with the challenges.


Adebisi Araba, CIAT Regional Director for Africa, said they are using big data and machine learning analytics to offer an innovative support to reduce the cyclical food and malnutrition crises experienced in parts of Africa.


"Through innovations http://www.teammlbdodgersshop.com/authentic-fernando-valenzuela-dodgers-jersey/ , such as the NEWS, we are going beyond crop breeding to understand and improve pathways for healthier and more diverse diets and improved nutrition," Araba said.


He said that Kenya is the first country in the world to have such a comprehensive decision and investment support tool in ensuring that Kenya's farmers remain productive in the face of climate change.


"We plan to expand this into a climate policy hub soon and will operate like a one-stop-shop for advisory services and research for impact, building on successful models from our work in Asia," he added.


He observed that CIAT has aligned its operations in Africa within four thematic areas http://www.teammlbdodgersshop.com/authentic-enrique-hernandez-dodgers-jersey/ , namely focus on improving nutrition pathways for health, building resilience into the food system, restoring degraded land and strengthening the competitiveness and productivity of farmers as well as efficient access to markets.


"We intend to position agriculture as a major employer of labor across the value chain in Africa from on-farm production to processing, marketing and distribution," he added.


Currently most governments and aid organizations use multiple metrics and separate tracking systems to measure malnutrition. This however misses early indicators of trouble that could have started earlier than the crisis because it has so much data to absorb.


"The NEWS system is designed to help prevent crisis from happening and not fighting fire as has been the case currently in handling emergencies http://www.teammlbdodgersshop.com/authentic-dee-gordon-dodgers-jersey/ ," Araba added.

KAZAN, July 22 (Xinhua) -- Chinese diving "dream team", who made a clean sweep at the 2011 Shanghai worlds and won nine out of the 10 titles on offer at the 2013 Barcelona worlds, will find it's hard to duplicate the glory this time in Kazan.


Three new events are added in the Kazan worlds http://www.teammlbdodgersshop.com/authentic-curtis-granderson-dodgers-jersey/ , which are the mixed three-meter springboard, mixed 10m platform, and team event. China has no advantage in those new events.


"The mixed events will be competitive," said Zhou Jihong, the team leader. "There will be no preliminaries http://www.teammlbdodgersshop.com/authentic-corey-seager-dodgers-jersey/ , and you can't make any mistake. When pairing up with female divers, the male divers cannot use difficult dives, and actually our difficulty degree is not the highest."


China will also meet big challenges in the men's events, especially the individual events. Cao Yuan and He Chao will compete with Russian diving stars Ilya Zaharov and Evgeny Kuznetsov. Zakarov is the London Olympic champion of the event, while Kuznetsov has also beaten Chinese divers in many occasions.


The men's 10m platform has always been a weak point for China. China lost the title in both the 2008 and 2012 Olympic Games. And in the 2013 Barcelona worlds http://www.teammlbdodgersshop.com/authentic-cody-bellinger-dodgers-jersey/ , the men's 10m platform synchro was the only gold medal China failed to win.


Defending champion Qiu Bo and world championships debutant Yang Jian will face strong rivals from Britain, Germany, Mexico, the United States, and the host Russia in the 10m platform http://www.teammlbdodgersshop.com/authentic-clayton-kershaw-dodgers-jersey/ , while Lin Yue and Chen Aisen will take part i.
