The campaign calls on students and others to walk 5km — the approximate distance it takes women and children living in low-resource countries to collect water — and challenge friends and families on social media using the #ACT4Water hashtag. A child collects clean water from a pump constructed by CMMB in Haiti. New York, New York, March 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CMMB (Catholic Medical Mission Board) along with CMMB x Hunter College, American Medical Student Association at CUNY School of Medicine and the Thirst Project are collaborating to raise awareness about the importance of improving access to clean water in low-resource countries to commemorate World Water Day on Monday, March 22nd. Walk 5km. Challenge 5 friends. Donate $5. The #ACT4Water campaign calls on college students and others to walk 5km, the approximate distance it takes women and children living in low-resource countries around the world to collect water. The campaign encourages students to carry an extra weight — such as a backpack of textbooks — to simulate the experience of carrying a jerrycan with 5 gallons of water, weighing about 44 lbs. Using the #ACT4Water hashtag on social media, CMMB asks participants to raise awareness about the global water crisis by challenging friends and family to walk 5km for clean water. Those interested can sign up at: cmmb.org/act “The lack of access to clean water and basic sanitation is one of the most troubling inequalities of our time,” said Mary Beth Powers, CMMB President and CEO. “One in three people globally do not have access to safe drinking water. Twenty-five percent of health facilities worldwide do not have a consistent source of clean water. Good health begins with clean water.” “Access to clean water is a basic human right,” said Matthew Modine, activist and American actor known for his iconic roles in Full Metal Jacket and Stranger Things. Mathew Modine joins college students by taking the challenge himself to walk 5km for clean water. “Women and children in poor and rural communities are the most vulnerable and at risk. Unsafe water results in countless deaths — almost all of which are preventable.” “CMMB is delighted to partner with college students and the Thirst Project to find new ways to make a difference,” said Mary Beth Powers. “We believe in a world where everyone has access to clean water,” said Priya Singh, a pre-med student and President of CMMB x Hunter student chapter at Hunter College in New York organizing the campaign with fellow students. “Our goal is to think globally and act locally by raising awareness on college campuses across the country to support communities in need of clean water.” Clean water and handwashing have become even more critical to slow the spread of COVID-19 and save lives. In 2020, CMMB expanded its clean water projects in local communities and health facilities and improved access to clean water for 261,811 people. CMMB and Thirst Project will hold a joint online event on March 22nd to commemorate World Water Day that invites college students and others to learn about the global water crisis from a panel of global health experts.

“Master Negotiator: The Role of James A. Baker, III at the End of the Cold War” by Diana Villiers Negroponte demonstrates the power democratic leaders have to change the world WASHINGTON, D.C., March 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- “Master Negotiator: The Role of James A. Baker, III at the End of the Cold War” by Diana Villiers Negroponte is a refreshing historical account of the actions taken by George H.W. Bush and his Secretary of State, James A. Baker, III, as they managed U.S. relations at a critical time in world history. Before he died, President George H.W. Bush wrote the Foreword, recognizing one of our most respected “elder statesmen.” As the Soviet Union disintegrated, its weakness could have encouraged others to take advantage through armed conflict. Instead, the Baker-Bush team assured stability, supported the reformist Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev and assured that no Islamic State acquired nuclear material that was stored throughout the Soviet empire. Negroponte argues the Cold War ended peacefully due to Baker’s firm hand and hard bargaining with friend and foe. Negroponte narrates these historical stories with verve and wit. A scholar at the Woodrow Wilson Center and adjunct professor at George Washington University, she relies on interviews with the men and women who worked with Baker, as well as his personal papers. With a light touch, she recounts periods of strategic thinking and skillful tactics. The result is an accurate account of U.S. foreign policy at its best. “Focused on the three years that ended the Cold War, the book demonstrates the power of individuals to bring about change,” Negroponte said. “Master Negotiator” sparks interest in a period of history when the U.S. government worked closely with allies and demonstrated its capacity to persuade other national leaders to work with them. "Master Negotiator" combines elements of history, drama and suspense to deliver a historically accurate account of Baker's work to end the Cold War and bring Israelis and Palestinians to the negotiating table while establishing his influence over U.S. foreign policy. “In ‘Master Negotiator’ Diana Negroponte skillfully explains how James A. Baker III helped President George H.W. Bush unravel the Soviet Union,” said John H. Sununu, Chief of Staff to George H.W. Bush and author of “The Quiet Man: the Indispensable Presidency of George H.W. Bush.” “Diana details the power of the personal diplomacy that enabled the Baker-Bush team to achieve the world-changing end of the Cold War, enable the unification of Germany and the assembly of the coalition that expelled Iraq from Kuwait. She has artfully detailed all the small personal interactions with world leaders that made those big diplomatic results possible.” “A fascinating account of Secretary of State James Baker’s skillful diplomacy in ending the last remnants of the Cold War,” said Jack F. Matlock, Jr., U.S. Ambassador to the USSR (1987-91), professor at Duke University and author of “Reagan and Gorbachev: How the Cold War Ended.” “Important reading for anyone wishing to understand how the Cold War ended.” “Master Negotiator: The Role of James A.
