A case study described in the report looks at how increased funding for HIV in Nigeria has trickled down to improvements at the local level in a whole range of areas, which in turn helps in the fight against many other diseases. Focusing on a hospital in Jengre, Nigeria, the case study shows that AIDS funding has helped provide free services for children and pregnant mothers enrolled in antenatal care, in addition to enabling major improvements in the hospital's infrastructure and its ability to tackle the other poverty diseases: tuberculosis and malaria.

A lesson learned is that social determinants must be addressed when addressing global health needs.

Developing Countries Lead Global Recovery
The World Bank projects global gross domestic product (GDP) to expand between 2.9 to 3.3% in 2010 and 2011. Developing countries will lead the global recovery, expanding almost twice as fast as high-income countries, according to the Bank's latest Global Economic Prospects 2010. Developing economies are expected to grow between 5.7 and 6.2% in 2010, while high-income countries are projected to grow between 2.1 and 2.3%. Full Report | Press Release | Video | Read More  

Nigeriens Combat Climate, Food Crises
When floods washed away livelihoods in Agadez, Niger last year, the World Bank-financed Community Action Program provided immediate assistance to villagers. Commune leaders came together to evaluate needs, and secured pumps, cattle, seeds and fertilizer. The Community Action Program has also provided assistance to Nigeriens battling drought, climate and food crises. With food insecurity rising, the program helped establish 136 cereal banks across Niger. Slideshow  | Read More

Corruption Fighters Tackle Stolen Asset Recovery
At a time of global economic hardship, corruption fighters from around the world convened in Paris to support efforts against asset theft and safe havens for ill-gotten gains. By conservative estimates, every year up to $40 billion is stolen from developing countries through bribery, misappropriation of funds and other corrupt practices. The lost opportunities are enormous. Developing countries could use $40 billion to finance first-line treatment for 240 million people with HIV/AIDS for a full year.

Stimulus Helps South Asia Rebound

The World Bank's first yearly assessment of the economies of the region finds that South Asia is poised to grow by about 7% in 2010 and nearly 8% in 2011. "Integration… and prompt policy responses are driving rebound of growth," says Dipak Dasgupta, principal author of the report. Download Economic Update (PDF) | Press Release | Read More

Former Yugoslav Republic (FYR) of Macedonia's strategic location puts it on one of the most important European international routes – Corridor X – which links Europe with Greece, Turkey, and Central Asia. Efficient and effective operation of the roads and railways which link FYR Macedonia to the rest of the region has become increasingly important to realizing the country's growth potential. In June 2006, the government and the World Bank signed the Railway Reform Project aimed at improving the productivity and effectiveness of railway operations. Since then, a number of new laws have been adopted as part of a complex reform process aimed at creating a sustainable railway system in the country. Read More

Connecting Rural Communities in Albania
A survey of poverty in Albania noted that many Albanians considered infrastructure problems to be a significant factor in their low standard of living. Forty-nine percent of rural producers stated that a lack of adequate transportation, primarily all weather roads, was their biggest marketing problem. Poor road access contributes to migration from rural to urban areas, and negatively affects the delivery of health and education services. Today, under the Secondary and Local Roads Project, 26 communities have received access to all weather roads for the first time. Read More

Dumbasses,

Cycling is entertainment, they're in front of an audience,
and she bantered with the announcer enough that the
crowd wouldn't go to sleep during the warmup. That's
professional. Remind me not to book any of you
clowns for benefits, buttering up the sponsors, or
party entertainment.

Only woman I know who has ridden sub-16 minutes on Old La Honda (3.32
miles, 1290' elevation gain). Not exactly her specialty, and she's
also going to be 52 this fall.

First competitive ride for over a month, was it not.

Contador is allegedly now going to be doing some 'proper' training on
the TdF Pyrenees stages. Scary enough that he wins on Alpe d'Huez with
his form as it is.

IMHO he was probably most displeased by his performance in the long TT, not
by his ride on Alpe d'Huez. He'll want his TT form much sharper than
that.

Of all the other prospective TdF winners for 2010, Armstrong is the only
other one you have comments on ??

Brajkovic, Horner, Kloden, Leppy ?

We'll have to wait for the mountain stage on Thursday
http://www.cyclingnews.com/races/tour-de-suisse-upt/stage-6 to find
out a bit more and then the ITT on Sunday
http://www.cyclingnews.com/races/tour-de-suisse-upt/stage-9

Hopefully he won't be DNF by then...

Sure it is. He wasn't the only one who took it easy. You don't think
he's trying to win TdS, do you?

I can't count how many times I've seen guys who were flying in
Criterium who were miles OTB in the TdF. I suspect Contador will be a
different guy next month.

For a rider like Lance finishing in 40th place in a TT is more than
taking it easy. No I doubt that Lance wants to win the TdS.

If it were a longer TT where the time gaps between 1st and 40th was
somewhere on the order of 4 or 5 minutes, I'd be inclined to accept
your point. For a short, prologue-ish TT of less than 8km, given that
he's only 29 seconds back in a race he's not specifically trying to
win, I'm not inclined to agree with your point at all. LA's results
in the 'stage 1' TT mean nothing.

Correct, let's see what happens on Thursday

Sunday (http://www.cyclingnews.com/races/tour-de-suisse-upt/stage-9) -
assuming he hasn't fallen off his bike again or that his brake hasn't

TT participation would likely go down were it not for the opportunity
to spend $ and ride on the latest fast gear.

Honestly, being able to ride that much faster on an aero rig is part
of the attraction. otherwise it is only suffering. (it's suffering
in any case, but at least you're going a lot faster)

As I recall Nature Valley is making the TT be "Merckx-style" ... and
people were not happy about it.

Focksticks,

A TT on an unpaved surface would accomplish this. A friend that is
running a TT had their course altered by road construction. I tried
to make the case for this, but was unsuccessful.

Your idea makes sense at an amateur level. At a pro level, I like the
bikes and aero gear. ITT's are incredibly boring, and looking at all
the different gear makes it marginally interesting to the fans. It
also brings in some sponsor money for the riders and teams.

TT's are so boring that we need some new rules. In ITT's, you should
also be permitted to draft off faster riders, unless they're on your
team. In TTT's, they should permit the teams to use one or more
tandems, or even 3+ rider bikes. I also want to see a derny-paced ITT
in the TdF, on wide-open, dead-flat roads. I figure an average speed
of 160 km/hr for a 50 km ITT would be possible.

Maybe you and your riding buddies are a little more "buddy buddy" than
me and mine. I ride with several different groups of people and most
people I ride with don't know my address or phone #. I kind of like
it that way. We are on a need to know basis. If they need to know,
they can look at my hospital band.
