Climate change, financing for development, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), management reform and counter-terrorism should all receive priority attention from the General Assembly over the next year, the incoming president Srgjan Kerim said today as he opened its sixty-second session.In an address to Assembly members at UN Headquarters in New York, Mr. Kerim urged them to help strengthen the 192-member organ to ensure it is well placed to deal with the world’s most pressing problems.“More than ever before, global challenges demand multilateral solutions,” he said. “The United Nations is the appropriate multilateral forum to take action. That is why the revitalization of this General Assembly deserves our highest attention.”Previewing next Monday’s meeting on climate change, which will be attended by heads of State from around the world, Mr. Kerim called on Member States to dedicate themselves to devising a collaborative, global response to the phenomenon, which he noted was now causing developmental as well as environmental problems.“The science has spoken; the time for action has come,” he said, adding that the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) should remain at the centre of international action.Mr. Kerim said he would convene an informal plenary meeting on Thursday to discuss innovative approaches for the upcoming high-level dialogue on financing for development.He stressed that the world is running out of time to achieve the MDGs, the set of eight targets for reducing social and economic ills, such as extreme poverty, all by 2015.“Achieving the MDGs is not solely a test of our ability to deliver on our promises: it is above all a test of our moral obligations, and the values that are enshrined in the [UN] Charter.”The new President called for greater efforts to promote peace, human rights and the rule of law, such as by strengthening the Peacebuilding Commission, which was set up last year to help countries emerging from conflict avoid sliding back into chaos or war.On 4 October, Mr. Kerim will also convene at UN Headquarters a two-day, high-level dialogue on interreligious and intercultural understanding.“Progress on these issues, and on development, will reduce instability and the threat of terrorism. This is a win-win situation for us all.”In addition, Mr. Kerim called for reform of the UN, “both operationally at the country level, and management at Headquarters,” as well as “the courage to move to a new stage leading to concrete results on Security Council reform.”Earlier, speaking to reporters, he said that since he was elected in May, he has been holding consultations with Member States and various political groupings on all of these issues in a bid to spark progress.Mr. Kerim, who is from the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia, served as his country’s Ambassador to the UN from 2001 to 2003 and in several other positions with his national Government. 18 September 2007Climate change, financing for development, the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), management reform and counter-terrorism should all receive priority attention from the General Assembly over the next year, the incoming president Srgjan Kerim said today as he opened its sixty-second session. read more

A group of Sri Lankan fans had their drums and flags taken off them in the crowd – both of which they’ve used in Eden Park before, and entered the park with, no problem. “They said it’s a rule of Eden Park but it feels very different because last world cup which was just last year, we took the same drums to Eden Park and then Wellington as well, so why the big difference now.”“We come here to enjoy it, this is a fan base. If you don’t like us to bring drums then you should make a Sri Lankan fanzone so we can bring drums and stuff to that area, and then we can enjoy.”Shirly Goonathilaka said the security asked for him to shorten his flag pole which he did, but it was still taken off him because it could “injure” someone. Witnesses have reportedly seen Sri Lankan fans being escorted from the ground by police and security guards. Dilini Wijesinghe said everyone was enjoying the drums, but they still had them confiscated without any proper explanation.“It just sort of feel like it’s racist. I’m really sorry but you know, that’s how I felt because we were enjoying it. If we did something illegal, that’s perfectly fine, take it away.” Spectator Hayden Eastmond-Mein, said the security were being over the top and taking extreme measures.“The big group of Sri Lankans they were targeting were just having a good time and providing most of the atmosphere in what can be a pretty dull stadium”To add insult to injury, the half-time entertainment was a group of samba drummers who walked straight past the group of Sri Lankan fans, he said.“I don’t blame the individual guards, they’re obviously just following inflexible rules that are supposedly about safety – but they just serve to make Eden Park a dull, fun-free zone.”A spectator, who didn’t want to be named, said security guards were hanging around a group of Sri Lankan supporters near the boundary. About six of them had been evicted.“They seem loud but well behaved and self contained,” he said.Police communications staff said they did not have any information about the reported incidents. (Colombo Gazette) New Zealand police have been accused of treating Sri Lankan cricket fans unfairly by removing some of them for playing music during the New Zealand vs Sri Lanka Twenty20 cricket match at Eden Park today.Twitter and Facebook are rife with accusations security guards are acting as the “fun police” and being too hard on fans, confiscating musical instruments and kicking people out, stuff.co.nz reported. “Cricket is about festivities, its about fun, it’s about the terraces, it’s about having a good time,” he said.“It was disappointing to see them get in trouble, get their drums confiscated and they actually create an atmosphere, you know.”It’s embarrassing he said. There were no dramas, everyone loved the atmosphere – and they weren’t the only people who had brought support. Hayden Wilson who was sitting near the group said as a New Zealand European, it was disappointing. read more

B.C. Premier Christy Clark’s five conditions for pipeline approval VANCOUVER – British Columbia Premier Christy Clark said Wednesday the federal government is “very close” to meeting her five conditions for pipeline approval. The premier said all but two of the conditions have been met: a “world-class” marine spill response regime and economic benefits to B.C.She made the comments a day after Prime Minister Justin Trudeau announced the federal cabinet had approved Kinder Morgan Canada’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion. The project would triple the capacity of the line and increase the number of tankers in Vancouver-area waters seven-fold.The conditions were first unveiled in 2012. Here’s a look at the progress that Clark says has been made:1. Successful completion of the environmental review process.B.C. initially planned to rely on the National Energy Board’s review of the expansion. The B.C. Supreme Court ruled earlier this year that the province cannot simply depend on federal reviews, and the B.C. Environmental Assessment Office launched its own review in April.Environment Minister Mary Polak said Tuesday that the office anticipates it will “soon” complete its assessment. There is no timeline for when it will be done. However, Clark indicated Wednesday that this condition was among those that had already been met.The energy board recommended in May that the federal government approve the project, subject to 157 environmental, safety and financial conditions. The City of Vancouver is among several interveners who have filed court challenges of the recommendation, arguing the process was flawed.2. World-leading marine oil spill response, prevention and recovery systems for B.C.’s coastline and ocean to manage and mitigate the risks and costs of heavy oil pipelines and shipments.Earlier this month, Trudeau announced a $1.5-billion ocean-protection plan. He said the money will be spent over five years starting in 2017 and includes funding to create a marine-safety system, restore ocean ecosystems, and develop new methods and research to clean up oil spills.Clark said the plan was a “really positive response” to the province’s work with the federal government on ensuring the coast is protected. However, she said she is still awaiting details from Trudeau before she can say this condition has been met.3. World-leading practices for land oil spill prevention, response and recovery systems to manage and mitigate the risks and costs of heavy oil pipelines.The premier suggested this condition had been met. Her government introduced legislation in February to establish a new, “world-leading” spill preparedness and response regime to address environmental emergencies, including land-based spills. The regime includes requirements for spill preparedness, response and recovery and new offences and penalties.The energy board considered protection of the land and pipeline safety in its review and several of its conditions addressed this issue.4. Legal requirements regarding aboriginal and treaty rights are addressed, and First Nations are provided with the opportunities, information and resources necessary to participate in and benefit from a project.Clark indicated this condition had been met, even though several First Nations on B.C.’s south coast remain adamantly opposed to the project, most notably North Vancouver’s Tsleil-Waututh Nation, which has filed a court challenge against the energy board’s recommendation.An earlier challenge filed by the nation arguing the Crown had breached its duty to consult was dismissed in September. The Federal Court of Appeal ruled that the First Nation had declined opportunities for consultation leading up to and during the review.The energy board heard from 73 indigenous participants during the review. Kinder Morgan Canada has said it has 40 letters of support from First Nations communities.5. British Columbia receives a fair share of the fiscal and economic benefits of a proposed heavy oil project that reflects the level, degree and nature of the risk borne by the province, the environment and taxpayers.Clark said this condition has not yet been met. Only 50 full-time permanent jobs will be created in B.C. after construction, but the premier insisted that the construction jobs while the pipeline is being built are “good, solid, family-supporting jobs.”She said more discussion is needed about the benefits that come to B.C. from the pipeline because the province is taking “the bulk of the risk.” The discussion has already started and could wrap up fairly quickly, she said.In 2013, she said she had agreed with the Alberta government that none of Alberta’s royalties from oil pipelines would go to B.C.— Follow @ellekane on Twitter. by Laura Kane, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 30, 2016 1:47 pm MDT Last Updated Nov 30, 2016 at 5:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

The data also showed that the number of reports of allegations of abuse rose fivefold from 1,795 to 10,279, and the number of police… The number of serious injuries reported by private healthcare providers in England has risen sevenfold since 2011, the Sunday Telegraph can reveal. Private healthcare providers, which range from private hospitals and hospices to drug rehabilitation clinics and cosmetic surgeries, are regulated by the CQC. According to data obtained from the Care Quality Commission (CQC), the reports of serious injuries, which include deaths, rose from 519 to 3,537 between 2011 and 2018. More than 17,000 instances have been reported to the watchdog between 2010 and April this year. read more

first_imgTHROUGHOUT THE YEAR European authorities will be running the rule over the continent’s banks with a series of tests to see how robust their finances are.Finance Minister Michael Noonan and Central Bank governor Patrick Honohan have gone out to bat for the Irish banks today, saying that we’re in good shape to pass the tests. But what is in store, and what potential pitfalls await?What is it?The European Central Bank and the European Banking Association want to see how European banks would react to various ‘shocks’ in the banking system. They’ll run tests simulating how banks – and their loans – would hold up in another financial crisis.These will be called stress tests and Asset Quality Reviews (AQRs). They’ll be run using sample data from banks’ loan books. The idea is to find the holes in the banking system before they’re torn open by a 2008 style worldwide financial crisis.Stress test? That sounds familiar…And so it should. Thanks to our participation in a bailout programme, not to mention the particularly vulnerable state of our domestic banks, we’ve been subject to more reviews than most. The last of these, in November 2013, found that there was no need for extra recapitalisation.Extra recapitalisation? Didn’t we do that already?Right again. The Irish state has poured billions of euro into recapitalising Irish banks in an effort to get banking activity back to normal – so businesses and ordinary people can get credit. The rights and wrongs of this have been hotly debated, as have the results. The main concern of government will be that the ECB review could find problems that other stress tests to date had not. If this happened, Irish banks may need more cash to keep going.And that would come from where?This isn’t clear yet. The Irish pillar banks have shown – albeit in a limited capacity – that they can raise cash on international finance markets.  All things Irish are popular at the moment, from hotels to government debt. If we’re selling it, we’ll find a buyer. So popular in fact, that the government felt confident in exiting the bailout without a precautionary credit line. Since then, we’ve been raising money like nobody’s business.OK, easy-peasy, they’d get it from the markets. Right?Not so fast. We’ve all seen how capricious international money men can be. Bad results for Irish banks could suck confidence out of the sector, making it hard – maybe impossible – for them to raise finance. In this instance, we could see the State called into action. Now, while things aren’t as grim as they were a few years ago, the government doesn’t exactly have several billions around to throw into the banking sector again.Remember that decision to exit the bailout without a precautionary credit line? Well, it might not look so smart if we’re forced to call on assistance from our international friends once again. Any extra injection of cash into Irish banks would certainly dilute our popularity on the international finance scene.Bailout MK 2. How likely is this to happen?This depends on how the banks’ loan books perform in the asset reviews and stress tests. Out of all the acronyms you’re going to hear-and there will be a lot-the most important one is NPLs: Non-Performing Loans.Data from World BankAs you can see from the chart, Irish NPLs are quite high compared to the overall EU level. The graph shows to 2012, and the situation hasn’t improved since then. The final IMF review conducted under the bailout said that some 26.6 per cent of Irish loans are non-performing.A lot of these loans are mortgages and loans to SMEs. This is why Morgan Kelly’s warning earlier this week that a more stringent approach to NPLs could damage the Irish economy attracted such attention. If  major problems are discovered within the banks’ NPLs that require financial triage, it could spell trouble.So where do we stand?There’s a lot riding on this year’s stress tests. Major problems would certainly endanger the fledgling European economic recovery, as well as potentially political stability.What’s likely to happen?For Ireland, anyway, Central Bank governor Patrick Honohan has said that the stress tests are unlikely to be any tougher than those we’ve faced already. Michael Noonan said this morning that he’s optimistic the Irish banks can stand up to scrutiny. Broadly speaking, it could kick off a wave of mergers between financial institutions, although at this remove it’s hard to say exactly what the upshot of the results will be.In any event, we’re unlikely to hear anything official until the test results are released in October. That doesn’t rule out some information leaking out as the reviews take place between now and then though, with the potential to bring huge pressure to bear on the government and financial system.

first_imgThe landlord for the embattled Legislative Information Office in downtown Anchorage is taking the first step in what could be a lengthy process toward a lawsuit.The Anchorage Legislative Information Office, March 4, 2016. (Photo by Megan Ahleman)The claim, filed Monday, with the Legislative Affairs Agency, seeks to recover $37,016,021 for damages connected with the Legislature’s 10-year lease on the building. That lease was ruled invalid in March.Lawyers for the landlord argued lawmakers should have known procurement rules well enough to not break them when they approved the original contract. They claim the state is on the hook for the $37 million invested in the building project.The document was delivered to Sen. Gary Stevens, R-Kodiak, who chairs the Legislative Affairs Council. Stevens said it’s being looked at by lawyers who will give advice in a few days. He could not offer specifics on what that advice is likely to be.The claim is likely to go through a drawn-out appeals process, and could go as far as the state supreme court. Though the move is not a lawsuit, one could emerge if the appeals process does not work out.last_img read more

first_imgDr. Tyeese GainesTyeese Gaines didn’t set out to be an ER physician.She figured she’d be a community doctor in the inner city, treating patients and delivering babies.But as she progressed through medical school, Gaines saw that the people she wanted to care for weren’t making it to a doctor’s office; they were coming into the ER. To take care of this population, she needed to be where they were.There were detours on the way, including a leave from medical school to get a master’s degree in journalism. Working in news was so enjoyable that she questioned whether she’d go back.Gaines resolved her dilemma by combining her two loves: she’s now a practicing ER physician, the health editor for theGrio.com and appears as a health expert on MSNBC.For Dr. Ty, “where they are” is no longer just the ER. It’s the whole world. Constellation of EventsMMEP was the right place at the right time for Gaines. The program provided her with mentors and shadowing experiences, taught her how her learning style affected her study skills, and primed her to take the MCAT just weeks after she left the program.“I came back different, and I don’t mean that in a dramatic way,” Gaines says. “There was something about the constellation of events—the people and the mentorship and being exposed to medicine. I had never been exposed to anything like that.” Right Place, Right TimeGains returned to Northeastern University before completing her Doctor of OsteopathicMedicine degree to get a master’s in journalism. Medicine took a temporary backseat.“It’s a lifelong commitment, and you have to absolutely love it,” she says, recalling the rigors of trying to become a doctor. “I won’t say that I didn’t love it, but it gets tough along the way.”Her solution gives her the best of both worlds. As a doctor, Gaines is affiliated with three hospitals in New Jersey and is a clinical instructor in the department of emergency medicine at the Yale School of Medicine. She plans health coverage and writes stories for theGrio.com, a news and opinion website geared toward African Americans. She also appears frequently on MSNBC and the greater New York metropolitan area’s NBC affiliate.It all makes for a very busy schedule, which inspired her to write a guide—The Get A LifeCampaign—on how women can make time for themselves.center_img Popsicle Sticks and TapeGaines always knew she wanted to be a doctor. She remembers being fascinated by the body and how it worked. “I used Popsicle sticks and tape to splint people. I don’t know where I got the notion to do it.”While her desire to become a doctor was set in her mind, her path was not. She wanted to do more and often got sidetracked.“When I talk to my mentees,” she says, “I tell them that as far back as I can remember I wanted to be a doctor, but my road was very squiggly.” The Robert Wood Johnson Foundation Minority Medical Education Program (MMEP, now SMDEP) helped prepare her for the medical part of the journey.Gaines applied for a spot at the MMEP site in Chicago. At the time, it was a consortium of four medical schools—the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine, Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine, Rush Medical College of Rush University, and Loyola Stritch School of Medicine.“It was awesome,” she says. “Here I am with 90 kids, all coming together with this fire and passion to learn what we can about being a doctor. It was amazing to be surrounded with that type of energy.”Gaines had chucked the idea of a major in physical therapy and chosen biology for premed. By the time she graduated, she had taken all the prerequisite classes to attend medical school. She went straight into Nova Southeastern University in Florida.last_img read more

first_imgBreaking news: Virtual idol from Japan stars in commercial about achieving your dreams via straight hair, along with ScarJo. World is round.We shouldn’t be surprised that this seemingly random mishmash of stars from opposite ends of the globe have teamed up for the sake of Japanese advertising, but hey, we’re only human. Unlike some digital pop stars.Yesterday, Japanese hair care company Lux launched their new commercial “movie,” starring the mega popular virtual idol Hatsune Miku and, in a complete surprise, Hollywood A-lister Scarlett Johansson.AdChoices广告We’re here to break down the seemingly non-congruent events in this video. Get ready for the ride, kids. It’s full of way too many surprises for a hair care commercial.In the middle of a city street, we see the blue-haired pop star contemplate her very essence of being, as she ponders her hair.“Of course I like the way I always look but..”She notices a giant screen on a building playing a Lux commercial starring ScarJo. It’s like a commercial within a commercial, you guys. So meta.“Ah! A wonderful commercial! Someday, I also…”Miku pulls out her ponytail holders“I’m going straight ahead!”Get it? Straight like her hair being worn straight, and living “straightforward.” Dear god.Deciding to wear her hair straight down somehow results in Miku singing to an overly excited crowd in a theater. The scene is a debut of Miku’s new song Future Overture (Lux Ver.) and is all about living your life like you wear your hair: straightforward.Here are the song lyrics translated:(Now) I will live straight (With heart) Look, if I walk out (From here on) Longing turns into reality on the stage (Dazzling) Wrapped in light (Starting) My story (Let’s go) Fluttering, shining hairWow, Miku. Did you really have so many obstacles in your Vocaloid life that you needed this shampoo to fix them all?The scene transitions to Miku admiring herself in a mirror, declaring, “The me with straight hair is shining!”And guess who interrupts this narcissistic reverie? The Black Widow Scarlett Johansson!“Hi Miku, this is Scarlett. Being true to who you are makes all your dreams possible.”Miku, what the hell is going on in your life that ScarJo has you on speed dial to call you whenever she senses you staring into a mirror? Are you a witch? Perhaps we will never know.From here, the commercial dissolves into a pink dream with Miku informing the viewer that the new Straight & Beauty line from Lux will change your whole goddamn life. Also, I think she’s supposed to be in Paris. So that happened.Hatsune Miku is a computer-generated super pop star in the otaku world. Created by Crypton Future Media, her voice is made by the Vocaloid voice synthesizer program, which you can purchase to program her to perform any song digitally. Her wide-spread popularity has brought her fame enough that a 3-D projection version of herself performs to packed theaters around the globe. Miku has spawned multiple video games and merchandise, ranging from bags, to clothing, to figurines galore.Future Overture (Lux Ver.), along with most of Miku’s songs, are produced by Mitchie M., who is responsible for developing Miku’s famous auto-tuned voice. You can check out the loads of Hatsune Miku songs he’s developed on his YouTube.You can check out this bizarred “press conference” where Hatsune Miku announces her collaboration with Lux shampoo here. The voice is super jarring when it’s not singing.Have you bought into the Hatsune Miku craze? We know that popular culture has, at least in Japan. The commercial is a fascinating look into what happens when Japan decides that celebrity power is all that’s needed to sell a mid-range shampoo set. Would you buy it?last_img read more

MG suggested the possibility of giving the hacking cable to a target as a gift.”It looks like a legitimate cable and works just like one,” MG told Motherboard’s Joseph Cox at the annual Def Con hacking conference. “Not even your computer will notice a difference. Until I, as an attacker, wirelessly take control of the cable.”As soon as the cable is connected to a computer and WiFi, hackers get full control to carry out commands remotely. Hackers can simply type in the IP address of the O.MG Cable into their own smartphone browser, then be offered a slew of options that allow them to run various programs on their target’s computer.MG revealed that a hacker could be up to 300 feet away from the target to connect, but an antenna could make the potential distance greater. It can also be tweaked to be a client to a nearby wireless network, which could make the distance unlimited if the network is connected to the internet.The USB can also be “killed” from a distance, which eliminates evidence of its use.The O.MG is a perfect replica of an original iPhone lightning charger, even featuring the correct packaging pieces that a real one comes with.A Handmade Hacker’s ToolThe fake iPhone charger was made by modifying legitimate Apple cables by hand.

They then will use molecular blood biomarkers to further improve the precision of those imaging signatures.Mammography has been the mainstay for early detection of breast cancer for more than four decades, but a substantial number of patients with image-detected breast cancer still die from the disease or receive unnecessary intervention. Researchers hope to identify the premalignant signatures of any given breast cancer subtype, even prior to disease detection. While one in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime, these cancers present in distinct subtypes, based on genomic alterations.If successful, this approach would expand mammography from a tool that screens for the presence of cancer to a true early detection device that identifies parenchymal hallmarks of precancerous changes. The investigative team also includes Isabelle Bedrosian, M.D., F.A.C.S., MD Anderson and Maryellen Giger, Ph.D., University of Chicago.For more information: www.houstonmethodist.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: C.C Airlines are fretting over the costs of carrying out checks on more than 100,000 potentially faulty passenger seats after safety authorities proposed a crackdown.The safety order comes seven months after Japanese seat manufacturer Koito Industries admitted to altering their designs then faking the safety test results, Airwise.com reported.Shares in the company plunged 33 per cent after it said it had been told by Japan’s transport ministry to ‘improve business management’ over the falsification of fire resistance and strength data on plane seats.Last week, US and European agencies provisionally called for worldwide check on Koito seats, expected to affect over 150,000 seats on 1,000 Boeing and Airbus passenger jets.However, authorities stopped short of issuing emergency directives, implying they were not certain whether the seats were dangerous.”The fault is not with (airlines) but with the manufacturer. From that point of view, I would be surprised if the airlines would be happy to pick up the cost. The real worry is that there will be some kind of legalistic ban on using the seats altogether and having to scrap them,” spokesman for the Association of European Airlines in Brussels, David Henderson said.The US Federal Aviation Administration estimated the cost of the exercise to US airlines alone at USD$875,000.Airlines buy seats separately from the rest of the aircraft but usually have them installed by the plane maker. Seat costs range from USD$2,300 in economy to USD$150,000 for a luxurious lie-flat seat in first class, the FAA said.Koito started business in 1915 making lenses for railway signal lamps and began making car headlamps in the 1950s. It also makes seats for Japan’s high-speed bullet trains.Among major clients, Koito lists Japan Airlines, All Nippon Airways, Singapore Airlines, Virgin Atlantic and Continental Airlines.last_img read more
