The overseas Indian population, excluding the South Indian subcontinent, in 2001 was estimated at 17 million. Indian Americansconstituted the second largest group, outside Mynamar and are now believed to have overtaken that country as well. The top 10 countries accounted for almost three quarter of all overseas Indians and just 25 countries for almost 95% of all overseas Indians.

We educate, support, and empower mothers living with HIV to keep themselves and their children healthy. Johnson & Johnson partners with mothers2mothers to support the work that I and many other mentor mothers do in South Africa.For an HIV-positive pregnant woman everything seems so complicated — but m2m has come up with a simple solution. Pregnant women living with HIV are educated and informed in both groups and one-on-one sessions about how to keep themselves healthy and what steps they can take to have a healthy HIV free baby. The education is done by Mentor Mothers like myself, who have participated in the program and are trained as health educators and role models. Mentor Mothers motivate pregnant women with HIV to adhere to their medicines. We provide a network of support for all mothers in the community. Challenges such as stigma and health worker shortages are addressed as well. Mentor Mothers are powerful agents against the stigma of HIV that causes women to live in fear and prevents them from seeking care. Mentor Mothers work alongside doctors and nurses, filling critical gaps in understaffed health centers and clinics.Read the full post here.Share this:
This exact problem is how Zephir was created; a simple language and it takes “a day to master,” said Iakovlev.“As a bonus, lots of developers now use Zephir to build their own PHP extensions and add-ons. They don’t have to use Phalcon. If they want to write some compiled software, they can just go with Zephir,” said Iakovlev. Goals for the project include a new major release, Phalcon 4, which the team hopes to complete this year. Two major changes in their roadmap include tighter integration with PSR standards and new Domain Driven Design components. Also, there are several projects that were built with Phalcon, like ImageHoldr, URL Shortnr, mailfinder, Tutor Hero, and the USA Cycling Website. Phalcon is also supported by PDFfiller.Top 5 trending projects on GitHub this week:#1. Pix2code: Generating code from a graphical user interface screenshot. #2. Chromatism: A simple set of utility functions for colors. #3. TensorFlow: Computation using data flow graphs for scalable machine learning. #4. Nile.js: Scalable peer-to-peer live video streaming built on torrents and WebRTC. Also featured here on SD Times. #5. Mocka: Simple, elegant content placeholder. For developers looking for mobility and a framework that can deal with projects with heavy loads, Phalcon may be an open-source option to consider. Phalcon is a full-stack PHP framework delivered as a C extension. It’s loosely coupled, allowing developers to use its objects as glue components based on the needs of the application. Using Phalcon, developers can also solve issues quickly without additional dependencies or software.After a year of regular contributions to the project, developer Serghei Iakovlev became one of the four members of the Phalcon Core Team. Phalcon was created by developer Andres Gutierrez and Eduar Carvajal in 2011, and it was in 2014 when Iakovlev joined the team.“Even in my first projects I preferred unstable/dev versions. I would consciously sacrifice stability in favor of a chance to participate in something exciting, find what is broken and fix it,” said Iakovlev. “That’s what led me to start using Phalcon.”According to Iakovlev, Gutierrez wrote Phalcon in C because he believed frameworks can exist in C and still be integrated into the PHP universe. After a year and a half since Phalcon was released, Gutierrez realized he needed a simple solution to get more contributors. He was finding it was difficult to engage developers because it was written in C, said Iakovlev.
