Worlds worst humanitarian crisis unfolding in Darfur Sudan UN official

Tom Eric Vraalsen, the Secretary-General’s Special Envoy for Humanitarian Affairs in Sudan, is working with UN staff to try to re-start talks on establishing a humanitarian ceasefire in Darfur.UN agencies have received numerous reports of systematic, deliberate attacks against civilians in Darfur since fighting erupted a year ago between the Sudanese Government, rebel groups including the Sudan Liberation Army (SLA), and local militia. Those reports include descriptions of murders, abductions, the burning of villages and the looting of property,More than 110,000 Sudanese have fled across the border into neighbouring Chad to escape the conflict, while another 700,000 people are internally displaced within Darfur, beyond the reach of humanitarian officials because of the continuing fighting.UN spokesman Fred Eckhard told reporters in New York today that while access for relief agencies “has improved slightly,” fighting still constrains their work. But he said the prospects for the resumption of ceasefire talks are good. read more

Adrok launches advanced exploration technology in Canada

first_imgAdrok Ltd, developer of a pioneering deep subsurface scanner which identifies energy resources and minerals without the need for exploratory drilling, is expanding its operations by opening a new facility on Prince Edward Island (PEI) in Canada. Adrok’s Atomic Dielectric Resonance (ADR) Scanner uses radio waves and microwaves to locate, identify and map subsurface natural resources including oil and gas, metallic ore deposits and industrial minerals. Unlike other 3D seismic technologies, ADR uses spectroscopy to measure the wavelengths and identify minerals and rock types in the subsurface.Adrok will provide a base to service existing clients in the region as well as developing business within Canada’s mineral exploration industry. Adrok chose its base on Prince Edward Island after the company was awarded a sizeable incentive package from the Provincial Government’s PEI Innovation Scheme.The new base will create six jobs for geophysics and field technicians who will gather and analyse data on site before sending it back to its Edinburgh headquarters for further analysis. There will also be a sales and marketing function in order to build the company’s client base in the region.Adrok has been working in Canada since 2011 after receiving a £3 million investment from key client Teck Resources, a diversified resource company. Gordon Stove, Managing Director of Adrok, said: “Canada is fast becoming the top destination for mineral exploration and it makes sense for us to expand our operations given our continued work with Teck Resources. The incentive package from PEI is a major boost for us and we are looking forward to growing the company in the region. One of the biggest challenges for the Canadian industry is sustainability and the environment, therefore, we are keen to build on our recent successes with clients and demonstrate how ADR technology is the future for energy resource and mineral exploration.”Choosing Prince Edward Island as its North American market hub has been welcomed by PEI’s Head of Innovation and Advance Learning Minister, Allen Roach. He comments; “Adrok is attracting significant global attention from the mining and energy industries because it offers a scanner that locates underground resources without the need for exploratory drilling. We think there’s a tremendous scope for exploration across the North American continent from its base here and I look forward to seeing the jobs and opportunities that materialise as Adrok consolidates its business here.“The expansion into Canada opens up a whole new market place for Adrok’s technology and is a very exciting proposition for both the company and the province of Prince Edward Island.”Adrok conducted its first commercial exploration in 2007 in Morocco and has since used its patented technology to assist energy and mineral exploration in the North Sea, Europe Australia and Asia.Adrok was founded by Dr Colin Stove, the inventor of the technology, and his son Gordon in 1997. Since then, in addition to government funding, Adrok has invested over £3 million to advance and commercialise the technology. Adrok launched its first commercial services offering, called “Predrilling Virtual Logging”, in the summer of 2007.last_img read more

Shuttered East West to Return to Print

first_imgEast West, which launched as an online-only magazine in 2003, was put on hiatus last April after the company ran out of money. “It is the tale of a small, bare bones company that has grown too fast,” Malik said at the time.Malik said she needed between $150,000 and $200,000 to relaunch East West and is still looking for additional capital. “We are looking for someone who understands the potential of the multicultural market and niche media,” she said. “We are a small operation that was successful all those years because we understood how to keep costs low in this digital world, even for print. Low overhead is what small publishers have to their advantage.”East West will be run by two full time staffers and a crew of freelancers/contractors, Malik said. The print magazine will continue to be bi-monthly and will carry a 20,000 circulation. After more than a year on hiatus, the founder of East West, a bi-monthly magazine targeting Asian Americans and focused on the intersection of Eastern and Western cultures, has announced plans to relaunch it.The magazine’s Web site will go live June 8 and the print edition will debut in September.According to Anita Malik—who was named to the 2007 FOLIO: 40—relaunching East West is a no brainer. “The cultural landscape has changed and our concept has now finally come to the mainstream,” Malik told FOLIO:. “We were ahead of our time when we started. But America has changed—it’s ready for the Eastern lens.”last_img read more

Former US first lady Barbara Bush passes away

first_imgFormer US first lady Barbara Bush reads `Arthur`s New Puppy` during the annual Easter Egg Roll on the South Lawn of the White House in Washington, DC on 24 March 2008Former US first lady Barbara Bush died Tuesday at the age of 92, triggering an outpouring of praise for the matriarch of a Republican family once at the apex of American politics.“A former first lady of the United States of America and relentless proponent of family literacy, Barbara Pierce Bush passed away Tuesday on 17 April 17 at the age of 92,” said a statement from the office of George HW Bush. They were married for 73 years.Barbara Bush has long been considered the rock at the centre of one of America’s most prominent political families, as the wife of a president and the mother to another-George W Bush-and to Jeb Bush, a former Florida governor and onetime presidential aspirant.She first met her husband-to-be at the age of 16 when she was a schoolgirl and he was a student at an elite preparatory school in Massachusetts. They married in 1945 while he was on leave from wartime service as a naval officer. The couple had six children.As first lady, from 1989 to 1993, she embraced the cause of universal literacy, and founded a foundation for family literacy.As tributes poured in to honour the life of Barbara Bush, president Donald Trump hailed her as an “advocate of the American family.”“Amongst her greatest achievements was recognizing the importance of literacy as a fundamental family value that requires nurturing and protection,” Trump said.“She will be long remembered for her strong devotion to country and family, both of which she served unfailingly well.”Force of natureHer son Jeb wrote: “I’m exceptionally privileged to be the son of George Bush and the exceptionally gracious, gregarious, fun, funny, loving, tough, smart, graceful woman who was the force of nature known as Barbara Bush.”And his son George P Bush tweeted: “I will miss you, Ganny-but know we will see you again.”“Barbara inspired us all to be the best version of ourselves,” said Orrin Hatch, America’s longest-serving Republican senator.Trump’s Democratic predecessor Barack Obama and his wife Michelle said “We’ll always be grateful to Mrs Bush for the generosity she showed to us throughout our time in the White House.”“But we’re even more grateful for the way she lived her life-as a testament to the fact that public service is an important and noble calling; as an example of the humility and decency that reflects the very best of the American spirit,” they added.Madeleine Albright, who under Democratic president Bill Clinton was the first woman to serve as US secretary of state, remembered Bush as a “woman of incredible determination, wit and compassion who embodied America’s best values.”Bush gained a reputation for toughness, wry humour and straight-speaking.Asked in 2010 about former Alaska governor Sarah Palin-who sought the vice presidency in 2008 — she told an interviewer: “I sat next to her once, thought she was beautiful, and I think she’s very happy in Alaska, and I hope she’ll stay there.”last_img

The NovaMG from Novarad offers radiologists the option to use their PACS workstation to read solely mammography and tomosynthesis studies.The outlook of breast cancer is changing, and death rates have been decreasing since 1989, thanks in part to treatment advances, earlier detection through screening and increased awareness. However, more than 40,000 women in the United States are still expected to die from this disease in 2015. According to the American Cancer Society, an estimated 231,840 new cases of invasive breast cancer are expected to be diagnosed in women in the United States this year, along with 60,290 new cases of carcinoma in situ (CIS). And for men, more than 2,000 new cases of invasive breast cancer are projected.A national poll, conducted by the Truven Health Analytics-NPR Health Poll,1 has found that the majority of American women — 57 percent — still are in favor of an annual mammogram, despite the recent recommendation for biannual screenings issued by the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) that suggested women should get a mammogram every two years starting at age 50, provided they don’t have a family history of breast cancer or find a lump. Only 12 percent of respondents said they believe the screening is only necessary every two years, as recommended by the USPSTF. “The proper evaluation and treatment of localized breast cancer is an area of active research. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force recommends biennial breast cancer screening with mammography in all average risk women between the ages of 50-74,” said Michael Taylor, M.D., chief medical officer at Truven Health Analytics. “With the Affordable Care Act mandating that insurers provide screening mammograms at no additional charge, patients have no reason not to be diligent about receiving a regular screening.”On the Legislative FrontThe American College of Radiology (ACR) and the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI) are encouraging congressional leaders to pass the Protecting Access to Lifesavings Screenings (PALS) Act (H.R. 3339).2 Passage of the act would ensure women who want regular mammograms retain insurance coverage with no co-pay and avert thousands of unnecessary deaths. Both organizations support the PALS Act3 as a way to delay implementation of draft breast cancer screening recommendations from the USPSTF for two years. “The two-year delay allows consideration of recent large studies that showed mammography to be far more effective than the old studies the USPSTF analyzed. It also provides time for Congress to enact separate legislation that mandates a badly needed overhaul of the closed and outdated USPSTF process,” said Debra Monticciolo, M.D., FACR, chair of the American College of Radiology Breast Imaging Commission. The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires private insurers to cover exams without patient cost sharing given a grade of “B” or higher by the USPSTF. The Task Force gave routine screening of women ages 40-49 a “C” grade and gave a “B” grade only to biennial screening for women 50-74. This would indicate that women ages 40-49 that choose routine screening and those 50-74 who want annual screening would not be guaranteed coverage, which could have an impact in underserved and rural areas. “The closed USPSTF process does not meet Institute of Medicine (IOM) standards for ‘trustworthy’ guidelines creation and needs updating. These USPSTF mammography recommendations are suspect until ACR and SBI recognized experts are included in a meaningful way in their creation,” said Elizabeth A. Morris, M.D., FACR, president of the Society of Breast Imaging. The Breast Density MovementLouisiana recently became the 24th state to sign the density reporting bill into law. According to areyoudenseadvococy.org, additional screening tests beside mammography for women with dense breast tissue will increase detection by up to 100 percent. These invasive cancers, missed by mammography, are small, node negative and at an early stage.“Universal density reporting will prevent later-stage cancers and give all women access to an early diagnosis — when most treatable and with better survival outcomes. Data show a statistically significant increase in the detection of small, early and invasive cancers invisible by mammogram,” according to Nancy M. Cappello, Ph.D., executive director and founder of Are You Dense Advocacy Inc.States with breast density inform laws in order of enactment include Connecticut, Texas, Virginia, New York, California, Hawaii, Maryland, Tennessee, Alabama, Nevada, Oregon, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Arizona, Minnesota, Rhode Island, Massachusetts, Missouri, Ohio, Michigan, North Dakota, Delaware and Louisiana. Advances in TechnologyOf course, detection is only possible through screening and technology, and this past year brought forth many technological advancements, helping to bring the issue of breast screening, and in particular breast density, to the forefront.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recently approved two systems from Siemens Healthcare. Mammomat Fusion is the latest addition to the Siemens family of full-field digital mammography systems that offers premium product features to address the specific needs of volume screening centers and small to medium-sized hospitals. The system features a new generation cesium-iodide detector — an innovative, layered configuration of the photo diodes within the detector that enables more efficient utilization of the radiation dose. The result is a high image quality at a patient dose that is at or below the range of other full-field digital mammography systems, with an even lower dose delivered in cases where the patient’s breast thickness exceeds 50 mm. The system’s large image matrix of 23 x 30 cm makes it convenient for screening various breast sizes.The FDA also approved Siemens’ 3-D mammography imaging system with breast tomosynthesis option, marking its tomo debut in the U.S. market. Siemens’ Mammomat Inspiration with Tomosynthesis Option is a breast tomosynthesis add-on option for Siemens Mammomat Inspiration digital mammography platform. Its breast tomosynthesis algorithm reconstructs multiple 2-D images of the breast into an approximation of a 3-D image to enable detection of tumors that are hidden by overlapping breast tissue. This helps to provide a more accurate diagnosis than standard 2-D digital mammography alone and helps to reduce the number of false-positive findings. In tomosynthesis mode, the X-ray tube of the Mammomat Inspiration rotates in a circular motion around the breast to acquire an image every two degrees while moving through an angular range of 50 degrees. The resulting 25 projections are reconstructed asthree-dimensional digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT) images. iCAD Inc. launched the iReveal breast density module as the latest addition to its PowerLook Advanced Mammography Platform (AMP). The software is designed to deliver automated, rapid and reproducible assessments of fibroglandular breast density to help identify patients that may experience reduced sensitivity to digital mammography due to dense breast tissue. It uses an advanced software program to assess breast density based on the range of categories established by the American College of Radiology’s Breast Imaging Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS), automating the same analytical approach used by many experienced radiologists. In many cases, patients with dense breast tissue may be recommended for additional screening exams including use of breast tomosynthesis.Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. recently submitted to the FDA the first module of its premarket approval (PMA) application for DBT. The module will be offered as an optional upgrade for the Aspire Cristalle mammography system. Fujifilm plans to file the remaining modules of DBT PMA within the coming year. The optional DBT upgrade for the Aspire Cristalle system, known as Amulet Innovality outside of the United States, has been available since May 2013 in Europe, Asia and Latin America. Aspire Cristalle features Fujifilm’s hexagonal close pattern (HCP) detector pixel design, engineered for higher acquisition efficiency and to enhance detail for improved low-dose performance compared to conventional square pixel design. The result is sharper images with gentler dose to the patient. Eizo Inc. has received FDA 510(k) clearance for breast tomosynthesis on its 5-megapixel monochrome medical monitor, the RadiForce GX540. The FDA 510(k) clearance includes tomosynthesis, mammography and general radiography. The monitor’s high resolution makes it ideal for viewing the fine details in breast images. To detect the smallest structures, the monitor offers a high contrast ratio of 1,200:1. The deeper black levels distinguish similar shades of gray for sharper monochrome image reproduction. Novarad has developed its own specialty viewer with advanced hanging protocols and workflows designed especially for digital mammography. While Novarad customers have been using a third-party mammography viewer for years, the new viewer is completely native to the NovaPACS enterprise viewer. The new NovaMG offers radiologists the option to use their picture archiving and communication system (PACS) workstation to read solely mammography and tomosynthesis studies, or the convenience to read for all patients and all modalities from the same workstation and user interface. The U.S. Patent and Trademark Office has issued a patent for the technology incorporated into Kubtec’s Mozart System with TomoSpec Technology. The system allows surgeons to bring 3-D tomosynthesis imaging directly into the operating room for lumpectomy and partial mastectomy procedures, and gives surgical teams the ability to make faster and more precise intraoperative determinations of the successful excision of tumor margins. Community OutreachEducation and accessibility play a crucial role in the early detection and treatment of breast cancer. Many organizations have found unique ways to spread public awareness of and access to this cause.For example, Loyola Medicine in Maywood, Ill., conducted a very successful See, Test & Treat Free Cancer Screening event that was funded by the College of American Pathologists (CAP) Foundation. This program is available at select institutions around the United States, however it was Loyola’s first.The program helps vulnerable women in underserved communities improve their health. In September, more than 50 women in need received free cervical and breast cancer screenings with same-day results as part of Loyola’s program and health fair held at Loyola University Medical Center. This event was also supported by Hologic Inc., the Community Memorial Foundation, the Coleman Foundation and Quest Diagnostics.“Many of the women we cared for had not had a Pap test or mammogram in more than 20 years, and thanks to the generous funding by the CAP Foundation, were able to receive care,” said Loyola Chair of Pathology Eva M. Wojcik, M.D., FCAP. “Seeing those signs of relief on the faces of women who were told their screenings came back normal was priceless.” Future Outlook The outlook for finding and dealing with breast cancer has improved dramatically in recent years, and will continue to improve exponentially, according to Jim Culley, Ph.D., senior director, corporate communications for Hologic.Culley cites a recent study by Sarah Friedewald, M.D., published in the June 2014 issue of JAMA that looked at nearly 500,000 screening exams, some utilizing 2-D mammography and some using tomosynthesis.4 The objective of the study was to determine if mammography plays a key role in early breast cancer detection, noting that single-institution studies have shown that adding tomosynthesis to mammography increases cancer detection and reduces false-positive results.Culley called out some of the study’s most significant findings:• A 41 percent increase in the detection of invasive breast cancers (p<.001);• A 29 percent increase in the detection of all breast cancers (p<.001);• A 15 percent decrease in women recalled for additional imaging (p<.001);• A 49 percent increase in positive predictive value (PPV) for a recall (p<.001). PPV for recall is a widely used measure of the proportion of women recalled from screening that are found to have breast cancer. The PPV for a recall increased from 4.3 to 6.4 percent;• A 21 percent increase in PPV for biopsy (p<.001). PPV for biopsy is a widely used measure of the proportion of women having a breast biopsy that are found to have breast cancer. The PPV for a breast biopsy increased from 24.2 to 29.2 percent; and• No significant change in the detection of ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS). DCIS is a non-invasive cancer. It has not spread beyond the milk duct into any normal surrounding breast tissue.

It was determined that further studies are needed to assess the relationship to clinical outcomes.Culley concludes that it’s best to compare apples to apples, and agrees that the USPSTF guidelines are slightly out of touch with today’s technology. “There has been so much improvement that you can’t help but question the USPSTF and their new guidelines that look at long series of data to justify their recommendations,” he said. “These organizations haven’t really adjusted for the fact that technology is changing dramatically. In breast cancer screening no one does film mammography anymore, everyone does digital and since 2011, most are trying to use 3-D mammography.”He gives the analogy of the advent of the digital camera. “Just think about the picture clarity of your phone, which was probably none, or digital camera back in 2000, and how much better images are now. It’s unreasonable to consider mammography today as it was then.”References:1 http://truvenhealth.com/truven-health-insights/health-insights/npr-poll.

Jordan becomes the first Arab country to launch a tourist pass

first_imgThe Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities of Jordan has launched a unified ticket for tourists under the name ‘Jordan Pass’, which enables tourists to visit various tourist sites, historic locations and museums in the Kingdom at a price of JD70 (around USD 99).The ticket is aimed at encouraging tourists to visit several attractions in Jordan and easing their movement between the various locations.Dr Abed Al Razzak Arabiyat, Managing Director, Jordan Tourism Board (JTB) added, “JTB would be carrying a comprehensive campaign in order to market the Jordan Pass across the globe and among all concerning markets, encouraging all tourists to buy the pass before their planned arrival to the Kingdom.”The idea behind the ticket is to encourage tourists to visit a large number of historical sites, shed some light on lesser known tourist attractions, and to make their trip easier with suggested itineraries, said Nayef H Al Fayez, Minister of Tourism and Antiquities. Adding, “The importance of the Jordan Pass is to save the tourist’s time, money, and stress during their visits around the country, giving them the ability to make the most out of their trips. Through this pass we are reflecting the hospitality of the Jordanian people; a large characteristic of what makes Jordan such a unique destination.”last_img read more

Turkey pushing ahead with hydrocarbons exploration around Cyprus

first_imgThe Turkish vessel Barbaros will begin explorations in Cyprus’ offshore block 9 on Sunday, while explorations in blocks 1, 8 and 12 of Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone (EEZ) will take place by end of May, according to Turkish daily Yeni Şafak on Saturday.Block 9 was drilled twice by Italy’s ENI in 2014 and 2015, coming up empty in both instances. The company said it had not found sufficient commercially exploitable natural gas either in the Onasgoras or Amathusa fields within block 9.Yeni Safak also reported that on February 27, Turkey would also be staging its biggest naval exercise in and around Cyprus’ offshore blocks, CNA reported.The Barbaros has been sailing to the coastal area south of Cyprus for natural gas explorations, and will remain in the area until the end of May in view of explorations licenced by the Turkish Cypriot ‘government’, the report added.The Turkish ship will be accompanied by two frigates and two corvettes.According to Yeni Şafak, “due to the stance of the Greek Cypriot leadership, which is ignoring north Cyprus, Turkey issued successive Navtex notices declaring the wider Mediterranean region for training exercises.”Navtex notices have also been issued for areas spanning EEZ blocks 4, 5, 6, 7, and 1, which has been characterised as a joint Turkey-Nato training exercise.The paper adds that in February, the Barbaros will be undertaking joint naval exercises with the navies of the Mediterranean countries within the Standing Nato Maritime Group.The frigates accompanying the Barbaros will also undertake joint exercises with military vessels from the USA, the UK, France, the Netherlands and Italy, which are also stationed in the area.These exercises, Yeni Şafak added, will take place on the blocks that the Republic of Cyprus licensed energy companies Total and ENI to begin exploration.Turkey’s claims on the island’s EEZ partly overlap with Cyprus’ blocks 1, 4, 6 and 7. Ankara also supports the north’s claims on blocks 1, 2, 3, 8, 9, 12 and 13, including within few kilometres from the Aphrodite gas field in block12.US giants ExxonMobil and Qatar Petroleum last month completed drilling activities in the Delphine target in Cyprus’ offshore block 10 but there will be no announcements until after the end of drilling in the block. The Stena Icemax drillship is currently drilling in Glafcos-1, the second location in block 10.Reports over the past few days suggest there would be an announcement on the findings in around two weeks’ time. You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoKelley Blue BookYou Won’t Believe How Affordable These Ford Car Models AreKelley Blue BookUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more

Special committee planned to oversee medical cannabis production

first_imgA committee tasked with evaluating applicants for licences to cultivate medical cannabis is to be set up, the cabinet agreed on Wednesday.Under the law passed in February regulating the cultivation and distribution of medical cannabis, the committee will process the submitted applications and select the three to whom a licence will be granted.According to the legislation, once selected, the producers will be required to cover the €500,000 fee for issuing the licence. The annual renewal of the licence will cost producers €30,000.Each medical cannabis producer will need to submit a report outlining the security measures being taken every three months, while the producers will also be evaluated by an inspector who will submit reports to an advisory committee.Should a producer break the regulations and the terms of their licence, a relevant authority will be tasked with destroying the cannabis with the costs to be assumed by the producers.You May LikeSUVs | Search AdsThese SUVs Will Take Your Breath Away.
