breakpoints which indeed titled the energy-sapping match in his favour More often than not the Indian served wide and deep tothe left of the Schnur making the returns difficult which helped him open the court for easy winners Schnur on the other hand packed a lot of power in hisground strokes and was very impressive with his swift movement and court coverage But the 202-ranked Canadian was hit by

like litter The overwhelming natural disastercaused by Typhoon Haiyan in the Visayan islands of central Philippineshas brought aid agenciesrelief goods and donations from across the globe This apocalyptic disasterwhich has affected more than a million peoplehas resulted in intense suffering and grief This is not the first timeand it is unlikely to be the lastthat international humanitarian aid has been needed by the Philippines The country is regularly ravaged by typhoonsearthquakes and volcanic eruptions Because of the recent storms and earthquakes in the countryit was lacking the relief goods needed to meet the massive requirements generated by last Fridays disaster Hopefullythe international communitys support will continue even after the initial shock has worn away Such support has not always been the norm Only a year agoTyphoon Bopha almost escaped the worlds attentionalthough its powerful winds destroyed the homes and livelihoods of millions of people in the southern region of Mindanao Bopha was among last years biggest natural disasters anywhere on earth 1200 people lost their lives in winds that peaked at nearly 200 miles per hour The scene in the main town of Baganga was one of pure destruction Coconut trees were lying on the groundlike discarded matchsticksfor miles Trees continued to block the main roads of many communities even three months after the catastrophe Typhoon Bopha hit the Philippines at a time when the world was focused on the Syrian crisis TV news was filled with the images of frightened Syrians escaping the civil war and fleeing to vast refugee centres The world or global media only seems to have space for one humanitarian disaster at a time Aid agencies were working hard on the ground in the Philippines But the relief effort was made difficult by the lack of donations Even after the basic needs of foodwaterhygiene and shelter have been metvital assistance is needed by these communities Such storms shatter livelihoodsincluding most importantly farming It takes 10 years for new coconut trees to generate income Fishing boats and equipment get swept away or destroyed Nowadaysaid agencies help people struck by disaster by paying them to clear the rubble in their communities People stay dependent on the aid until they regain the means to become self-sufficient As a result of the frequent natural disasters in the Philippinesrelief organisations and machineryalthough always lacking enough resourcesare able to respond quickly There is much emphasis and attention on saving peoples lives once a disaster has struck that is obviously the priority at such a time But the question of how we can prevent the death and injury of so many people must also be explored After BophaI have seen the shattered homes and broken lives of the families living close to the sea and without hope in Mindanao I have visited the slums of Manila after the water had receded from its three-meter height following the severe flooding in 2012 People had brought their children back inside their damp concrete-walled rooms Babies were sleeping on makeshift flooring made of plastic and blankets Televisions were left out to dry in the streets in the vague hope that they would still work Household goods fished out of the filthy floodwater were being aired and recycled The common thread through these recurring sad circumstances is the lack of planningcombined with poverty and corruption Although Manila is the most developed city in the countryit takes just a few hours of heavy rain for the rivers to flood the slums that people have moved to from the provincesin a desperate search for work The government has offered to relocate people from these flood-prone areasbut most are forced back to such urban slums because there are few jobsschools or other social services in the rural areas The infrastructurewhich is fragilealso fails during natural disasters During heavy rainswaste matter clogging waterways and rivers causes the water level to rise rapidly The roads in the provinces are elementary Many households still dont have electricity The Philippines estimates that Typhoon Haiyan will not have much of an impact on its high economic growth projected at around 7 per cent this year The impact is small because the victims of the typhoon were mainly the poor If povertyinfrastructurecorruption and housing issues were addressednatural disasters would claim fewer victims and have less of an impact on communities and livelihoods The writer is a Manila-based journalist express@expressindiacom For

addition to winning the gold medal after beating Phelps with an Olympic record in the 100 meter butterfly the 21-year-old Schooling also took home a reward of 1 million Singaporean dollars (about US $750000) from his national Olympic committee Singapore was among the many countries offering hefty cash prizes to their medalists at the Rio Games a practice that has become more common as nations continue to give greater importance to the final medal count Few pay nearly as much as Singapore but almost every country has been awarding at least some sort of prize money to medal winners in an attempt to improve their position in the medal table The bonuses usually come through the national committees sponsors or national governments Some also give out non-cash prizes such as cars and apartments Twenty percent of Schooling’s prize will go to the local swimming association for “future training and development” Singapore’s national committee said Schooling’s gold was the first ever for Singapore at the Olympics Phelps returned home with more gold than Schooling but less money The American great earned $25000 for each of his five gold medals and $15000 for the silver earning $140000 from the US Olympic Committee By the end of Friday the USOC had spent about $18 million in prizes after 105 medals were won by its athletes Britain second in the medal standings did not award any prize money to its medalists Italy was ninth in the medal count by Friday but with the equivalent of nearly $170000 awarded to each gold medalist in Rio it had already spent about $26 million in

money that’s not why we compete in the Olympics” Azerbaijan also gives its coaches half of the amount awarded to the medalists Russia’s federal government is giving out about $60000 for gold and this
