Pfeiffer Syndrom type 2

Pfeiffer Syndrom type 2



Mata saya mengembun, dan kemudian jadi kabur oleh air mata, berkali-kali, setiap menjelajah isi Instagram ini


Sepasang suami istri yang rupawan, mapan, tinggal di Amerika, dan kemudian dianugerahi si unyu Bella, yang lahir dengan Pfeiffer Syndrom type 2 (low chance to "live" menurut dokter ).


 Dilahirkan dalam kondisi syndrome, dengan kondisi langit2 mulut yang langka, terbelah berbentuk hati. Dia tak bisa menelan apapun, makan nya hanya bisa susu khusus dan disalurkan melalui selang yang disambungkan ke perutnya. Bella punya daun telinga yg normal, tapi tak memiliki lubang.


Tapi, Bella punya orangtua luarrrr biasa, yang tak kenal lelah berjuang, bedoa dan berikhtiar maksimal.


Sekitar umur 2 tahun, Bella dipasang alat khusus yang bisa membuat dia " berbicara". Alat yg harusnya tdk bisa ia gunakan, karena secara medis itu tdk mungkin, karena tak ada udara yg bisa keluar masuk dari tenggorokannya


Meski divonis tuli, tapi bella bisa ikut shalawatan mengikuti lagu Maher Zein yang diputar di tape.. How come  ?? Lagi-lagi, jawabannya cuma 1, kebesaran Allah..


Selain terkena Pfeiffer Syindrom, Bella juga didiagnosa Sleep Apnea apaaaa gitu(rumit istilah nya). Jadi saat tidur, otak kecil Bella lupa memerintahkan paru-paru nya untuk bernapas. Bella hanya bernapas 2-3x dalam semenit, bahkan pernah juga selama 70 detik, bella tidak bernapas sama sekali. Karena itulah, saat tidur bella pake ventilator.


Dan masih banyak lagi yang lainnya


Kalau kita sering kesal sama tingkah laku anak kita, ga sabaran, kurang qonaah sama kekurangan anak kita, bisa sesekali berkunjung ke instagram beliau. Seketika kita akan langsung malu sekali


Malu pada rasa syukur dari kedua orangtua Bella atas putri mereka, memaksimalkan ikhtiar pengobatan dan tetap bangga dengan putri cantik mereka..


Seperti yang sering saya katakan


"Setiap Keluarga Punya Air Mata nya sendiri

6. PeRoti (Wageningen University): Max Wijkamp, Saffiera Kerleen

Ajang final dilaksanakan pada hari Selasa 27 Juni 2017 di Sands Expo, Las Vegas dengan Ketua Janam Pandya (University of Massachusetts Amherst) dan tim juri dari perwakilan industri pangan, yaitu Diliara Iassonova (Food Service & Innovation, Lead, Oils & Shortening R&D, Cargill), Janice Johnson (Application/Technical Service Leader, Cargill), Siow Ying Tan (Principal Scientist, PepsiCo), Shintaro Pang (R&D Scientist, General Mills), Sarah Scholl (Bakery Application Manager, Tate & Lyle), Kathryn Kitchen (Associate Food Scientist, Tate & Lyle), dan Upasana Hariram (Research Project Leader, Merieux Nutrisciences).
Berdasarkan hasil penilaian full proposal, presentasi oral dan sesi tanya jawab dengan tim juri, terpilih tiga kelompok sebagai pemenang, yaitu: 
1. Juara 1: Guini, Universidad de Costa Rica
2. Juara 2: P-Noodl, Institut Pertanian Bogor
3. Juara 3: Chinut, Institut Pertanian Bogor

 Green Talents 2017 – International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development (Fully Funded to Germany)

Green Talents 2017 – International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development (Fully Funded to Germany)

Picture

Deadline: May 23, 2017
Location: Germany

Fully Funded!
Overview:

​The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) hosts the prestigious ” Green Talents – International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development” to promote the international exchange of innovative green ideas. The award, under the patronage of Minister Professor Johanna Wanka, honours young researchers each year. The winners come from numerous countries and scientific disciplines and are recognised for their outstanding achievements in making our societies more sustainable. Selected by a high-ranking jury of German experts the award-winners are granted unique access to the country’s research elite.

Are you an up-and-coming scientist with innovative ideas and a strong focus on sustainable development? Does your research have the potential to change the world? We challenge you to convince our high-ranking expert jury and become one of the 25 Green Talents 2017!

The award is open to all disciplines as long as it is related to sustainable development. In 2017 the award has a focus on “Sustainable Production and Consumption” and this year’s Science Forum, taking place in October, will integrate sustainability hot spots in Germany related to this theme. Nevertheless, we highly welcome applications from all (not connected) research areas.

​Applicants must meet the following requirements:

– Enrolment in a Masters or a PhD programme in any field related to sustainable development or must have completed their degree (Master/PhD) with significantly above-average grades in a similar programme no more than three years before the end of the application process.
– Excellent proven command of English
– A non-German citizen or anyone not residing in Germany (individuals therefore not eligible to apply: German passport holders as well as anyone living in Germany at the time of application even if the residence is temporary).

No exceptions to these requirements can be accepted. Ineligible applications will automatically be disqualified.

The Green Talents Competition focuses on outstanding young scientists who are active in the field of sustainable development. The German Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF) fosters interdisciplinary approaches in this regard. Applicants can therefore come from any scientific field closely related to sustainability research. In view of the fact that this year the award focuses on “Sustainable Production and Consumption” we particularly welcome submissions relating to this topic in the 2017 Green Talents Competition. However, the competition is still open to all fields and offers equal opportunities to win.


Cost:

When selected as a “Green Talent”, you will be invited to a two-week  Science Forum  in Germany (which takes place in October 2017). This means that the BMBF will cover your travel expenses (to/from Germany and during the trip) as well as your meals and accommodation during the forum. Costs for health insurance and visa fees cannot be covered and must be paid by the participants.

Call for Applications for Youth Conference on The 9th Asia Pacific Conference on Reproductive and Sexual Health and Rights (9th APCRSHR)

Call for Applications for Youth Conference on The 9th Asia Pacific Conference on Reproductive and Sexual Health and Rights (9th APCRSHR)


  • Call for Applications for Youth Conference on
    The 9
    th
    Asia Pacific Conference on Reproductive and Sexual Health
    and Rights (9
    th
    APCRSHR)
    27 November 2017, Vienam
    There are an estimated one billion young people aged between 10 and 24 years living in
    Asia and the Pacific, accounting for more than a quarter of the population in this region.1
    These young people are just entering their sexual and reproductive years, however
    understanding of the sexual and reproductive health (SRH) needs of the majority (831
    million) who are unmarried remains limited[1]. In Asia, young people are heterogeneous,
    and have come from all walks of life. They recognized that majority of them across the
    region are marginalized and that the situation is particularly difficult for young women and
    girls, people living with disabilities, indigenous people, ethnic and language minorities,
    migrants, young people who use and inject drugs, people living in the context of war and
    humanitarian crises, young people who sell sex, people living with HIV, out of school youth,
    and displaced people, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity and expression
    (SOGIE)[2]. The gross inequities in sexual and reproductive health outcomes in the region
    particularly affect adolescents and young people, in particular, through poor access to
    comprehensive sexuality education, sexual and reproductive health services including full
    range of contraceptives, safe abortion, STI and HIV treatment and mental health services.
    Including young people in the design and promotion of the rights and program of actions to
    SRH helps identify the barriers to access and can ensure equity for young people.
    The 9th APCRSHR will be organized from 27th to 30th November 2017 in Vietnam, and will
    be hosted by Vietnam Public Health Association (VPHA). The first day of the conference is

    th
    APCRHR is: Leave NO ONE Behind! - Justice in

    young people regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity and expression (SOGIE)
    in not only Asia Pacific but also across the world who are working and interested in field of
    Reproductive and Sexual Health and Rights to strengthen their voice, exchange the
    knowledge and take actions for their justice and rights to sexual and reproductive health
    issues.. Furthermore, the youth conference becomes an opportunity to promote meaningful
    participation to address the SRHR challenges and inequity among young people by cross
    learning from their peers best practice and practical action in the conference and in their
    own countries when they come back.


  • This conference will cover sub-themes:
    1. Overcoming social, cultural and religious barriers in sexual and reproductive health
    2. Towards a just economic order for sexual and reproductive health
    3. Strengthening justice systems for sexual and reproductive health and rights
    4. Making good quality sexual and reproductive health education available to all
    5. Advancing justice and equity in sexual and reproductive health and health care
    The Award/ Scholarship: General guidelines
    - 50 young people will be given scholarships (25 from Vietnam and 25 from Asia and
    the Pacific Region) which covers conference registration fees, travel and transportation
    including visa fees, board and lodging, other related expenses and pre-conference
