Kate will never forget that two-hour cruise on a small boat off the Coast of Depoe Bay, Oregon. with about
25 other tourist, she was excited about sailing on the Pacific Ocean, but within half an hour she felt dizzy,
nauseous, and weak. Kate spent the next 90 minutes lying down in misery, counting the time until she could get
back on solid ground. Motion sickness ruined the cruise and she has never ventured out on the ocean again.
Motion sickness comes in many forms, not just seasickness. Ninety percent of the Human race is susceptible to
motion sickness of one kind or another. Some people become sick when they sit on the back of a car; others
cannot read or look at a map in any kind of moving vehicle. People get motion sickness on airplanes,
motorcycles, amusement park rides and even on camels!
Scientists have learned that motion sickness occurs when the brain is trying to make sense of a situation
and there are too many conflicting messages. While the eyes are sending one message, the ears are trying to
send a message about balance. The skin and bone joints, sensitive to air pressure, send still another
message..
People who still get sick after trying these strategies can try medical help. Some rely on over-the-counter
medications, although some of them can make you sleepy. Others use simple ginger capsules to settle their
stomach. A large number of travelers use pressure bands on their wrists. It is not clear how these bands work,
but they do prevent motion sickness.

2 Secretary-General's Message
Each year, the international community unites in memory of the Holocaust and reflects on the lessons that we all
must heed. It is a vitally important annual observance.
On the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz-Birkenau, the largest and most notorious of the Nazi death
camps, we remember the millions of Jews, as well as the prisoners of war, political dissidents, and members of
minority groups, such as the Roma and Sinti, homosexuals and disabled people, who were systematically
murdered by the Nazis and their sympathisers.
This year, we pay special tribute to the women who suffered in the Holocaust. Mothers and daughters,
grandmothers, sisters and aunts, they saw their lives irrevocably changed, their families separated and their
traditions shattered. Yet, despite appalling acts of discrimination, deprivation and cruelty, they consistently found
ways to fight back against their persecutors.
They joined the resistance, rescued those in peril, smuggled food into ghettos and made wrenching sacrifices to
keep their children alive. Their courage continues to inspire. On this Holocaust Remembrance Day, let us honour
these women and their legacy. Let us pledge to create a world where such atrocities can never be repeated.
We are all aware that such a future has yet to arrive. Everywhere in our world, women and girls continue to
endure violence, abuse and discrimination. The United Nations is fully committed to promoting and protecting
their fundamental human rights. By empowering women we empower all of society.
Families should never again have to endure the kind of evil seen during the Holocaust. Only by working together
can we prevent genocide and end impunity. By educating new generations about this terrible episode of our
history, we can help to uphold human dignity for all.
