Fatigue chronique lefficacité de la thérapie comportementale prouvée

first_imgFatigue chronique : l’efficacité de la thérapie comportementale prouvéeUne étude britannique, la plus importante jamais menée sur le sujet, révèle l’efficacité de la thérapie comportementale, mais aussi de l’activité physique, sur le syndrome de fatigue chronique (SFC). Une étude allant à l’encontre des affirmations d’associations de patients, qui dénoncent les dangers de ces traitements, et défendent une “thérapie d’adaptation du rythme d’activité”.Depuis plusieurs années, des groupes de patients assurent que l’activité physique pouvait s’avérer dangereuse pour les personnes souffrant de fatigue chronique. Ils défendent une thérapie de rythme adapté, qui consiste simplement à réduire son rythme d’activité pour s’adapter à la maladie.

Après un an d’étude, les niveaux de fatigue des différents patients ont été évalués. Les chercheurs ont alors observé une réduction modérée de la fatigue et une augmentation des niveaux d’activité chez les personnes ayant suivi une thérapie comportementale et pratiqué de l’exercice. Les traitements médicaux et la réduction des efforts n’ont quant à eux révélé aucune efficacité notable. L’étude révèle ainsi que la fatigue chronique peut être soignée. Alors que le syndrome touche jusqu’à 2% de la population mondiale, nombre de personnes atteintes considèrent cette maladie comme incurable.Toutefois, les conclusions de l’étude doivent être tempérées. Les traitements évoqués n’ont permis de réduire la fatigue que de 60% des patients. En outre, leur impact à long terme est encore incertain. Le 27 février 2011 à 19:22 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Pogba wants Italy return in January

first_imgManchester United’s Paul Pogba is keen on a return to his former club Juventus during the January transfer window, according to Metro.The Frenchman resigned for Manchester United back in the summer of 2016 for a then world record fee of £90million but has struggled to replicate the same performances from Juventus.Pogba is keen to leave Old Trafford after falling out with manager Jose Mourinho. The pair were involved in a heated bust-up with the United boss last term, which led him to be dropped from the team.Reports in the Italian press suggests Pogba’s poor relationship with Mourinho is the driving force behind his desire to leave Old Trafford. And the midfielder is planning a return to his former club where he would link up with Cristiano Ronaldo.Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.The Italian champions shelled out a club record €100million fee to bring the current Balon D’Or holder to the Allianz stadium in Turin.Should Pogba complete a shock return to Juventus, the midfielder would be able to play for the Italian club in the Champions League as UEFA have removed the ‘cup-tied’ rule from their competitions as of this season.But first, the France international must take on his former club in the Champions League group stage as United have been drawn alongside Juventus, Valencia and Young Boys in Group H.last_img read more

Scott Kirsner on Innovation Leaders New Print Launch

first_img Folio: What kind of a response have you seen to the first issue (Fall 2015)? In an email exchange with Folio:, Scott Kirsner, Boston Globe columnist and Innovation Leader co-founder, detailed the new launch and gave some insight on why, in today’s market, a print launch made sense for Innovation Leader. Folio: Will the print component’s content mirror the newsletter content, or is it going to feature different types of stories? Kirsner: The first issue is 92 pages; future issues will be in that same range, 90 to 100 pages, with a target of 8 to 12 ad pages. There are five ad pages in the first issue, plus a directory in the back of consulting firms and other innovation-related service providers. Innovation Leader co-founders Kirsner (left) and Scott Cohen (right).Innovation Leader, a website and email newsletter devoted to corporate innovation and R&D, recently debuted a quarterly print magazine for its subscriber base of more than 10,000 business executives. Kirsner: All our current web subscribers will receive it. It’s part of the subscription package, which costs $695/year for an individual, and more for a team, department or whole company. Folio: What other distribution will the print mag have outside of current Innovation Leader subscribers? We know people are going to mock it a bit—you’re about innovation and you’re doing ink on dead trees?—and we’ve seen some of that, but we did the work to understand what our audience pays attention to, and this was the end result of that exploration. Folio: Will Innovation Leader be taking on any additional staff for the print magazine? Folio: How will subscriptions work? Will the print version be offered to all of your current subscribers, or is it an additional charge? Kirsner: Yes, we just hired a Sales Director this week, and one of his main jobs will be selling print, and print + digital packages. We’ll also be adding several more freelance writers around the country with deep experience covering big companies, plus more staffers to help run our live events series. Scott Kirsner: We started Innovation Leader in mid-2013 as a purely digital publication about how big companies develop new products, manage research and development groups, and innovate in all sorts of other ways. Since our focus was innovation, initially we were thinking we’d want to innovate on how we communicated with the audience, so we started with videos, downloadable audio, a weekly e-mail newsletter, PDFs, and webinars. But a few months after the launch, we started getting requests for printed versions of certain research reports we did, like a salary survey and one on how big companies interact with startups. And when we’d talk to subscribers at our conferences, they’d all ask whether they were missing something—were they supposed to be getting a magazine as part of their subscription? So we decided to do that, after validating with more subscriber interviews that print is something these high-level executives still pay attention to, whether it’s The Economist or The Wall Street Journal or Harvard Business Review. None of those publications, we feel, really cover the challenges and benefits, the wins and losses, of innovation in a consistent way. Kirsner: We’re testing a controlled circulation approach with several thousand senior executives in R&D, strategy, new product development, and design positions who we think would find the content helpful. They may just appreciate getting the magazine, but some may also want access to all the web content. So for them, print will ideally lead to digital.   Kirsner: Since we’ve been publishing digitally for a bit more than two years, there’s lots of content that we think will work well in print, especially stuff where a company has created something very visual, like the new Starbucks flagship Reserve Roastery in Seattle, which is part of our first issue, or where we can get pictures of something like a “demo day” for startups that Disney held at its headquarters. But we’re also commissioning original stories that will debut in print, like our cover package on failure. The stories online and in print have the same editorial point of view: doing new stuff inside a large organization is hard, and we want to dive in and explore what works and what doesn’t.  Folio: About how many pages will the quarterly be? What about the number of ad pages? Kirsner: The first issue was mailed earlier this week, so it has only arrived in a few subscribers hands. We had one company in Europe whose CEO subscribes to the website tell us that they are a paperless company—don’t send any more magazines, please. But we think that’s an anomaly. We’ve already seen an uptick in subscriptions, and several companies featured in the magazine are asking for reprints and extra copies, which we think is great. We’ve had a few inquiries from potential advertisers, which is even better. We think that print still makes a publication seem substantive and real and original, especially in a world where there are so many blogs out there and so much republished and rewritten content.  Folio: Why add a print component? Had you gotten feedback from your audience that led you to make this move, or indicates that there’s still a demand for print?last_img read more

In their paper published in the journal Science, the group describes their technique and why they believe it could one day provide the basis for a new type of storage device.

More information: G. Spektor et al. Revealing the subfemtosecond dynamics of orbital angular momentum in nanoplasmonic vortices, Science (2017). DOI: 10.1126/science.aaj1699AbstractThe ability of light to carry and deliver orbital angular momentum (OAM) in the form of optical vortices has attracted much interest. The physical properties of light with a helical wavefront can be confined onto two-dimensional surfaces with subwavelength dimensions in the form of plasmonic vortices, opening avenues for thus far unknown light-matter interactions. Because of their extreme rotational velocity, the ultrafast dynamics of such vortices remained unexplored. Here we show the detailed spatiotemporal evolution of nanovortices using time-resolved two-photon photoemission electron microscopy. We observe both long- and short-range plasmonic vortices confined to deep subwavelength dimensions on the scale of 100 nanometers with nanometer spatial resolution and subfemtosecond time-step resolution. Finally, by measuring the angular velocity of the vortex, we directly extract the OAM magnitude of light. New theory to explain why sun’s surface rotates slower than its core Prior work had shown that it was possible to use orbital angular momentum of photons as a way to store data in the air (because of their different phase advances—each could be used to represent an individual character), which in practical use would be optical fibers. In this new effort, the researchers have found a way to do much the same thing, only on a chip, which allows for it to be confined, making it much easier to port to an actual application.To accomplish this feat, the researchers turned to plasmonics, which are oscillations in quantum particles or quasiparticles. In this case, it was the oscillation of electrons that occurs when photons strike a metal surface. The idea, the researchers noted, was that plasmons allow for confining light, which meant that it was possible to make its wavelength conform to a metal surface. They found they were able to kick off plasmon waves with angular momentum by etching spirals into a gold plate—that allowed for monitoring its motion using an electron microscope. Using it, they were able to see that firing photons at the spiral in the plates caused electrons to be ejected, which was an indirect way to “see” plasmons, which were controlled by the angular momentum of photons. This meant it was possible to use the initial wave advances to represent characters within the confines of a computer chip. That day is still a long way off, of course— the work was more a proof of concept than a finished product. But if a way can be found to mass produce chips using the technique, end users could see a huge increase in the amount of data storage. The work also suggests, the team notes, that it might be possible to do some things with light that have never been possible before.last_img read more

Missing officer found at fatherinlaws flat

first_imgKolkata: After almost a week, the state Criminal Investigation Department (CID) has tracked down Arnab Roy, the missing WBCS officer of Nadia, from his in-laws’ residence in Howrah on Thursday.According to sources, CID sleuths were trying to track the tower location of Roy’s mobile phone. But as his mobile phone was switched off, they were in the dark. Later, CID started scrutinising the call records of Roy and his family members. There, sleuths found a specious mobile number. When the number was traced, police found that it was active in Howrah’s Shibpur area. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataImmediately on Thursday morning, CID officials went to the location and found that it is a government housing complex for police personnel. When sleuths went up to the traced flat, they found Roy. He was immediately taken to Shibpur police station. Later, his wife and top government officials were informed about his recovery. Sources informed that CID has taken him to Bhavani Bhawan, to question him about his disappearance. His wife has also come to Kolkata. Though details of the incident are not clear yet, CID may question Roy and his wife. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateDuring preliminary investigation, CID officials came to know that the flat from where Roy was found, belongs to his father-in-law, who is currently posted as a Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) in Diamond Harbour Police District. Questions arose on where Roy got the keys to the flat and more importantly, why he left his duty as nodal officer despite being in charge of the Electronic Voting Machines (EVM) and Voter-Verified Paper Audit Trails (VVPAT). Roy had gone missing mysteriously on April 18 from Nadia. His wife had lodged a missing complaint at Kotwali police station three days later. On Thursday, District Magistrate (DM) of Nadia Sumit Gupta said: “We are happy to know that he is ok. Further things will be found in due course.”last_img read more

Image courtesy of American Journal of Obstetrics and GynecologyThat ultrasound offers benefits in cost, availability and minimizing radiation burden should come as no surprise. The medical community has been hearing this for a long time, especially during the past three years from the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) as part of its “Ultrasound First” campaign. What is surprising is that a group of opinion leaders in OB/GYN felt the need to advocate in the American Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology (AJOG) the use of “ultrasound first” – specifically to image the female pelvis.AIUM membership includes many of those who prescribe OB/GYN imaging studies in the United States (56 percent of its 10,000 members indicate an interest in obstetric ultrasound; 37 percent indicate an interest in gynecologic ultrasound). You might expect, therefore, that AIUM would be preaching to the choir when it comes to the cost-effectiveness and safety of ultrasound, particularly in regard to the female pelvis. Yet Beryl R. Benacerraf, M.D., and a half-dozen similarly respected colleagues found it necessary to state in the April issue of AJOG that “a skillfully performed and well-interpreted ultrasound image usually obviates the need to proceed to additional, more costly and complex cross-sectional imaging techniques,” a tenet that applies “particularly to obstetric and gynecologic patients.”The need to state what might be considered obvious by many is palpable. As astounding as it may seem, computed tomography (CT) is the first choice for many women presenting with pelvic pain, masses or flank pain, the authors state in the AJOG article, just as magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is the go-to modality for many with Mí¼llerian duct anomalies. Most distressing is that CT and MRI of the pelvis often yield indeterminate and confusing findings that require further clarification with ultrasound, the authors wrote.”Doing a CT scan first for female patients with lower abdominal pain is dangerous, wasteful and expensive,” said Benacerraf in a prepared statement. The clinical professor in obstetrics, gynecology, reproductive biology and radiology at Harvard Medical School and Brigham and Women’s Hospital, went on to say,  “We must educate the medical community to consider adopting 3-D ultrasound as the first assessment tool for specific gynecologic indications, such as evaluating the uterus for Mí¼llerian anomalies or localization of IUDs or other intracavitary lesions.”A decade ago 3-D ultrasound was more clinical curiosity than tool, limited by its dependence on the skill of the operator and restricted primarily to fetal assessment. Since then, however, volumetric scanning has matured. Its automated acquisition of operator-selected volumes can be sliced into hundreds of images reconstructed at just about any angle. Ultrasound is less expensive and less time-consuming than MRI, and free from the ionizing radiation of CT. And yet it provides many of the answers that these two modalities cannot.A big part of the problem, according to AIUM Past-President Alfred Z. Abuhamad, M.D., is that many ultrasound practitioners have not yet embraced 3-D. Instead they continue providing basic 2-D scans. This “emphasizes the need for education and dissemination of this information,” said Abuhamad, professor and chairman of obstetrics and gynecology at Eastern Virginia Medical School. As America enters a new era of cost concerns, it is important that practitioners take advantage of tools that are effective clinically and financially, especially when those tools are best suited to answering their questions.Greg Freiherr has reported on developments in radiology since 1983.

first_imgRelated posts:‘Green Season’ book excerpt: Car Trouble Book Review: ‘Green Season’ delivers delights, belly laughs and revelations ‘Green Season’ book excerpt: Moving Pictures ‘Green Season’ book excerpt: Day of the Devils The Tico Times is beginning a new adventure. Since 1956, we have served as Central America’s primary English-language news source, reaching readers around the world with critical news, features, and analysis from the region. Today, as part of our ongoing effort to deliver superb content and reach our readers in new ways, we are proud to announce the launch of The Tico Times Publications Group. This new division will publish English-language and bilingual books on a variety of topics related to Costa Rica, including some writing and reportage from the newspaper itself.The Tico Times Publications Group begins this exciting new era with the release of “The Green Season,” a collection of essays, profiles, and travel stories written by former staff writer Robert Isenberg during his first year in Costa Rica. Isenberg, 35, is now living in Phoenix, Arizona, with his wife, Kylan, and working as a freelance writer. We caught up with our old colleague to discuss mutual food nostalgia, Costa Rica and the writing life. Excerpts follow.First things first. What’s the latest delicious Mexican dish you ate? Wait, don’t tell me. I’ll be too jealous. OK, tell me.You asked for it. I went to this place called Taco Guild, which is built into a converted church in downtown Phoenix. I had two tacos, the “pork adovada” with mango jicama relish, and the “Duck Confit,” which was slathered in chile aioli and blue cheese. These were perhaps the most delicious tacos I’ve ever eaten in my life. But the real kicker is the “street corn,” which is basically corn on the cob covered in cheese and cayenne pepper. I call it “Tex Mex à la Hïpsteur.”You monster. All right. How did “The Green Season” come to be? You were writing these individual pieces as a reporter, but at what point did you think, Hmm, there could be a book here?I don’t think I’ve ever met an expat who didn’t dream of writing a book. Costa Rica is such an invigorating place, and almost everyone I’ve encountered in Costa Rica – Tico and expat – just overflowed with astonishing stories. Before I even moved there, I was so interested in writing a book about Costa Rica that I applied for a Fulbright to do just that. The Fulbright people had to reject me three times before I finally gave up. Instead, I ended up writing for The Tico Times, which was much harder, much more intimate, and much more fulfilling than I think the Fulbright would have been. I got to work in a bilingual office. I got to hear about major events before anyone else. Every reporter in that newsroom became my mentor and friend. Every day I woke up inspired and ready for action. From there, a book was the natural next step. But the desire had incubated for years.Once you had that goal in mind, did that inform the kind of features you chose or sought out in any way? Author Robert Isenberg. (Courtesy of Robert Isenberg)It’s funny. The original manuscript was something like 400 pages long, because I wanted to include every article I liked. On the second pass, I became a lot pickier, but I wanted the book to represent a range of styles and topics. Costa Rica is a diverse place. You turn a corner, and everything changes – the landscape, the weather, the wildlife, even the dialect. I wanted the book to reflect that. You’re right: There were some assignments I accepted because I thought, “This would work really well in a book one day.” But as you know, reporters never know what they’re going to find. My most heartfelt story in the book is about Salvando Corazones, the halfway house for young girls. It might be my proudest achievement as a journalist. Visiting the halfway house was a powerful experience, but writing the story felt like divine intervention. It surpassed all my expectations. Only later did I think, “This story has to be in the book. It’s just too important not to be.”Did you have any particular inspiration along the way, or books you were hoping to echo?I read all kinds of stuff, but my very favorite kind of book is very specific – single-author collections of previously published essays. The classic example is Joan Didion’s “Slouching Toward Bethlehem,” which pretty much every nonfiction student has to read at least six times in college. But some similar collections are David Foster Wallace’s “Consider the Lobster,” John Jeremiah Sullivan’s “Pulphead,” Sarah Vowell’s “The Partly Cloudy Patriot,” David Rakoff’s “Fraud,” Susan Orlean’s “My Kind of Place” – the list goes on an on. A lot of people avoid these books, because they find them “piecemeal” and “uneven,” but I eat them for breakfast. Each book is written in the first person, and the writer is a kind of character, poking around, experiencing things. But the writer is rarely the subject. None of these books are memoirs, exactly. They evolve like a good conversation, anecdote by anecdote, and they coalesce into something greater than the sum of their parts.Do you have a favorite chapter in the book, or a favorite moment or idea?“Saving Hearts” is my proudest, but picking a favorite isn’t possible. It’s like picking your favorite offspring. But one standout is “City by the Sea,” about a visit with my friend Beto to Puerto Limón. Most tourists avoid Puerto Limón, and most Ticos shrug their shoulders at it. Everyone knows that the Caribbean coast is under-reported, and most of that news is negative. I wanted to write a story that celebrated Limón. Sure, it’s a rough town, and it’s poor and weather-beaten. But it reminds me so much of Pittsburgh, my very favorite place on Earth. I really want that city to experience a renaissance, and in a way that benefits the people who already live there. And long after that renaissance happens, I hope someone will find “The Green Season” in an archive somewhere and say, “Wow, so that’s what it used to be like. Look how far we’ve come!”You wrote so memorably about what you’d miss about Costa Rica in your letter to your future children. Now that you’re away, what are the things you find you really do miss? Mostly, I miss my friends and colleagues. But I also miss casado lunches. They were such a staple of my existence, not just because they were cheap and nutritious and always available, but also because they were an excuse to hang out with my compañeros. More than anything else, those lunches were what brought people together. We’d spend an hour or two talking about anything under the sun. We’d drink a gallon of fruit juice and follow it up with coffee. We’d tell off-color jokes and gossip about the neighborhood. I feel like I remember every soda, from Tamarindo to Puerto Viejo, because every lunch was so memorable and different. At lunch, I could be social with people I never encountered in any other context.Have you had any “Oh wait, I’m not in Costa Rica anymore” moments? You know, using Spanish out of context, panicking when you forget your umbrella and then realizing you’re in Arizona?The craziest culture shock was driving. Once we bought our new car in Arizona, my primal brain wanted me to drive like a chepeño. But this is absurd, because roads in Phoenix are six lanes wide, smoothly paved, clearly marked, and motorcyclists use passing lanes. The thing is, I’ve come to respect Costa Rican drivers more than ever. A lot of Phoenician drivers are terrible. They’re courteous and aggressive at all the wrong times. They drift from one lane to another, as if they’ve forgotten there are other vehicles on the road. They drive like they just took a sedative and are steering with their teeth. In contrast, San José drivers are intense, but they’re really skilled. I never drove so well as I did in Costa Rica. To be honest, I’m pretty nostalgic for it. I almost miss the rotundas.If we flew you back to Costa Rica right now, what’s the first place you’d go, to do what?Well, first I’d spend a couple of hedonistic nights in San José, hanging out with good friends. As my Dad likes to say, it’s not the place, it’s the people. After that, I would beeline to Sámara. I only visited there once, and I never had the chance to go back. It’s such a wonderful town, such cool people, and the beach is spectacular. I have such fond memories of that visit. It’s become mythic to me.How do you think you’ll look back at your time in Costa Rica in terms of its role in your writing life, its impact on the way you approach your work?When I tell people in the United States that I lived about two years in Costa Rica, they smile conspiratorially, because they think I spent the whole time chugging ayahuasca and having hammock-orgies on the beach. My life in Costa Rica was a dream come true, but most of my success was professional. After a decade of freelancing, The Tico Times gave me my first staff writer position. They gave me my first press badge, desk, living-wage salary and health benefits. For the first time, I didn’t have to beg an editor to write a story and then wait three months for a response. I’d say, “I want to write about sea turtles,” and my editor would reply, “Go for it.” Now that I’ve experienced that level of freedom and support, my standards are much higher. I expect more from a workplace. I feel more ownership of the work I produce. Now that I’m 35, mid-career, it feels really good. And it was my tenure in Costa Rica that made that possible.What do you think people will get from this book?A lot of people have written in English about their experiences in Costa Rica. Many of these books are memoirs about self-discovery. “The Green Season” has those elements, but I also want readers to learn things they might never learn otherwise. The vast majority of tourists see Brunca masks in the souvenir shops and have no idea where they came from. Most students never read Luis Chaves or know his name. People fly out of Juan Santamaría Airport without ever learning who Juan Santamaría was or why he was important. “The Green Season” is not the book about Costa Rica. Expats tend to be really captivating people, and their stories are generally amazing. But I hope that people flip through “The Green Season” and think, “Wow, I never knew that.” Or: “Wow, I never thought about it in that way.” Or: “Wow, I really felt like I was there.” If only one reader finishes the book and feels enriched or inspired, I’ll have done my job.“The Green Season” is available in paperback format at The Tico Times Store (for customers in Costa Rica); it is also available from Amazon.com in both paperback and Kindle e-book formats.

Probe into Turkish Cypriot property fraud

first_imgInterior Minister Constantinos Petrides said on Wednesday an intensive effort was underway to locate and stamp out mismanagement relating to Turkish Cypriot properties, as Paphos Mayor Phedonas Phedonos said politicians and others had been illegally exploiting them.The outspoken mayor, whose past revelations led to a rubbish management scandal and the arrest of state and elected officials, charged that ineligible individuals, including a former minister and former municipal councilor were getting rich through the unlawful possession of Turkish Cypriot properties.Petrides responded immediately, saying on Wednesday that the cases Phedonos was referring to were known to him and the Turkish Cypriot management service.“The Paphos mayor’s reports concern seven cases, already known to the minister, for which the necessary procedures are underway to recover them or put other corrective measures in place, like readjusting the rent,” Petrides said in a written statement.He said these constituted a small number of the cases identified by the ministry.“The ministry, especially the Turkish Cypriot property management service, has launched an intensive effort to identify and stamp out mismanagement that has accumulated all these years,” he said.Following the 1974 Turkish invasion, properties abandoned by Turkish Cypriots in the south were, by law, put under the protection of the interior ministry, or the guardian of Turkish Cypriot properties.Because of the need to house Greek Cypriots who were displaced from the north, it was decided to allocate such properties to them – usually for a small fee – on condition that the owners would not lose their rights.Speaking on privately owned television station Sigma on Tuesday evening, the Paphos mayor said there were non-refugees who held property worth millions either because they had been renting it before the invasion or managed to secure them through various means.He spoke of a former minister who had property in his possession without being eligible, and a former councilor who stayed in the occupied areas for a few months before the invasion but managed to secure refugee status and now has buildings in his possession that he sublets for €2,000 to €3,000 per month without declaring the earnings to the tax department.Phedonos also mentioned a party official who mediated the construction of a commercial building on Turkish Cypriot property by a company that it later emerged he held shares in. Neither he nor his wife were refugees.There are also thousands of hectares of farm land that the state has paid subsidies on without asking for leasing agreements from the applicants, he said.The blatant mismanagement of Turkish Cypriot properties is an issue that comes up from time to time but never seems to be resolved, apparently because of the vested interests involved.In March this year, MPs called on the interior ministry to stop threatening Greek Cypriot users of more than 1,300 Turkish Cypriot properties with eviction, and to submit a report explaining the criteria they used for rent hikes imposed last year.According to Akel MP Skevi Koukouma, head of the House refugee committee that discussed the rent increase issue earlier in the week, the government’s decision was unilateral and there was no consultation with those affected.The rent increase on those properties was introduced last year as part of a plan by the interior ministry to amend outdated procedures and introduce a fairer distribution of Turkish Cypriot property to beneficiaries.The move was deemed necessary after it emerged that many who hold such properties – especially businesses in places like Larnaca – sublet them, often at inflated rates.It also affects houses in Turkish Cypriot villages that are often used as holiday homes. According to the new rates, those who used to pay €10 as monthly rent will now pay €25.Those paying between €11 and €20 will see an increase to €35, for €21 and €30 to €45, and for more than €31 there will be a rise to €50.This concerns 1,342 establishments used by 759 refugees and 583 non-refugees.The decision was met with discontent by many tenants who found the rent increase unfair because they had spent a lot of money over the years repairing properties – many of which were dilapidated – and had brought life back to deserted communities.Interior minister at the time, Socratis Hasikos, said those expenses had been recouped over the years the property had been used at low rent.He said that the redistribution of Turkish Cypriot land was already under way and that procedures had been set in motion to take Turkish Cypriot property from those who refuse to pay the higher rates.Also in March, the Paphos district officer said that around 50 Turkish Cypriot properties had been recovered over the past nine to 10 months from users who were not paying rent or where irregularities were detected. The same policy, she said, had also been applied in the other districts.You May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
