First comes fire then comes marriage Busy year for Fort McMurray couple

first_imgFORT MCMURRAY, Alta. – It’s been a busy year for Elise Phillippo and her husband Brandon.They got hitched, bought a house and had a baby — all against the backdrop of the costliest natural disaster in Canadian history.Four days before her May 7 wedding, the bride-to-be was planning to pick up her dress from the seamstress after work.Instead, she was among the more than 88,000 Fort McMurray residents caught in bumper-to-bumper traffic as a fierce wildfire forced the entire northeastern Alberta city to empty.Phillippo would never see that dress again. It was inside a home that burned in the hard-hit Abasand neighbourhood.In Toronto, where the wedding was to take place, the couple’s photographer, Alex Neary with Wild Eyed Photography, asked if there was anything she could do to help.“And I said, ‘I need a dress,’” recalls Phillippo, 30.She thought perhaps Neary could scrounge up a second-hand one from a friend.“All of a sudden she messaged back and said she had all these dresses,” Phillippo says.“I was taken aback. What do you mean: ‘All these dresses?’”Word got around on social media.“People just started offering dresses one after another. I just couldn’t wrap my head around people being as generous as they were. They had no idea who I was, so they definitely didn’t have to do that for me.”A shop in downtown Toronto, Lea-Ann Belter Bridal, gave Phillippo one dress and loaned her another.The couple tied the knot on Toronto Island on the same day they had planned all along.At the ceremony, Phillippo wore the loaner, a lacy number with spaghetti straps and a train. The donated dress got some use months later, when she let a friend, who was trying to save money, wear it for her wedding.From Toronto, the newlyweds went to Edmonton and waited for the evacuation order to lift. Phillippo, a massage therapist, spent that time working at the Active Life Centre clinic in St. Albert, where she says she was treated like family.The home the couple was renting in Fort McMurray’s Thickwood neighbourhood was undamaged by the fire. They have since bought it.Phillippo expects her first wedding anniversary to be low key. Their two-month-old son Kellan Xavier takes up all the time and attention.The one-year anniversary of the fire is looming a bit larger in her mind.“I’m actually kind of looking forward to the anniversary of the fire, as strange as that sounds,” she says. “I’m kind of hoping that it gives people some peace.”last_img read more

Barrick Gold to take US429million charge on PascuaLama project

first_imgTORONTO – Barrick Gold Corp. says it expects to take a US$429-million charge following an order by the Chilean government to close all surface facilities at its troubled Pascua-Lama project high in the Andes mountains.The gold miner says it is reclassifying Pascua-Lama’s 14 million ounces of proven and probable gold reserves, which are based on an open pit mine plan, as measured and indicated resources.Barrick is studying the potential of developing Pascua-Lama as an underground mining operation, rather than an open pit.It says the change would address a number of concerns by reducing the overall environmental impacts.The project, which straddles the Chile-Argentina border, has been criticized for threatening water supplies and glaciers.Barrick says it will provide a further update on the Pascua-Lama project at the company’s investor day on Feb. 22.Companies in this story: (TSX:ABX)last_img read more

5 things to watch for Ohio State v Iowa

4. Which team will shake off the rust better?It will be a full two weeks since the last time the Buckeyes played a football game, when they beat Northwestern Oct. 5. OSU coach Urban Meyer’s teams are 34-2 when they have more than one week to prepare for an opponent (includes bye weeks, season-openers and bowl games). Iowa is coming off a bye week as well, looking to get back on track in B1G play after falling to Michigan State two weeks ago. Turnovers could be abound early on, as both teams will be getting back in the swing of things after the time off. 2. Can Braxton Miller bounce back?After a four touchdown performance against Wisconsin in his return from an MCL sprain in his left knee, Miller struggled mightily against Northwestern. His three turnovers and no touchdowns almost cost OSU the game, and their undefeated season, but Hyde was there to pick up the slack. If the Hawkeyes can stifle Hyde and the running game Miller will need to be at his best for the Buckeyes if they hope to pull out a victory. If Miller can repeat his performance against the Badgers, the Buckeyes should take care of business, but if he struggles again the game could be a tighter affair than most expect. 3. Mark Weisman v. the Buckeye defense.Almost mirroring the battle on the other side of the ball, the sixth-ranked OSU run defense is set to face off against a strong Iowa rushing attack led by junior running back Weisman. Coming into the game, Weisman is averaging 104 yards a game on the ground, good for 21st best in the country. To prevent the upset, sophomore defensive lineman Noah Spence and company will need to win the battle up front to try and contain Weisman and the Hawkeye running game. Already this year, the Buckeyes have faced off against a high profile running back, Wisconsin sophomore Melvin Gordon, who OSU held to a season-low 74 yards, almost half his average. Sophomore defensive lineman Noah Spence (8) scans the crowd during a game against Northwestern Oct. 5 at Ryan Field. OSU won, 40-30.Credit: Shelby Lum / Photo editor1. How does Ohio State handle the Iowa run defense?So far this season, the Buckeye rushing game has been running on all cylinders, averaging 280.7 yards per game. But this week, they face off against an Iowa squad holding its opponents to 88.5 rushing yards, good for eighth best in the nation. If OSU’s last game against Northwestern is any indication the Buckeyes will look to run senior running back Carlos Hyde and company a lot to open up some space for the passing game. Redshirt-senior running back Jordan Hall can come in as a change of pace player to help OSU, but Halls’ usage remains in question after a joint issue in his knee kept him out against Northwestern. 5. How will Iowa starting quarterback Jake Rudock fare in his first start at Ohio Stadium?OSU gets to play in front of more than 100,000 people every time they play in Columbus. Kinnick Stadium, home to the Hawkeyes, only holds a little more than 70,000. Redshirt-sophomore quarterback Jake Rudock has been decent so far in 2013 (1,202 passing yards, eight touchdowns, six picks through six games), but has never played in front of a crowd like the one that will be at Ohio Stadium Saturday. How he is able to handle the noise provided by what is sure to be a charged up Buckeye Nation could ultimately decide Iowa’s fate. The Buckeye secondary hasn’t exactly been rock solid even when senior safety Christian Bryant was on the field, but if Rudock struggles and turns the ball over, it could be a long night for the Hawkeyes. read more

TDs head to Iran to discuss trade human rights and the nuclear

first_imgA DELEGATION OF TDs and one senator on the Oireachtas Foreign Affairs and Trade Committee is to visit Iran later this week.The mission will focus on “building relations with Iran again” according to committee chairman Pat Breen. While details of the trip are still being finalised, Breen said all going well he will be accompanied by three TDs and one senator on the trip.He told TheJournal.ie that the delegation is expected to hold meetings with senior Iranian ministers, including those responsible for agriculture and foreign affairs, with a focus on trade.The country’s nuclear programme and the current human rights situation in the Islamic republic are also planned, with the delegation set to hold talks with chambers of commerce, opposition politicians and human rights groups.Breen, a Fine Gael TD, is expected to lead the delegation but said a family matter may prevent him from joining TDs Eric Byrne (Labour), Maureen O’Sullivan (independent), and Seán Crowe (Sinn Féin). Fine Gael senator Deirdre Clune is also due to travel.The delegation will depart for Tehran on Thursday, arriving on Friday and returning next Tuesday. The committee is covering the costs of four of the delegation with Crowe paying for himself.“The purpose of visit is an opportunity to get back into Iran again given what has been happening in relation to nuclear programme, particularly since the Geneva 5 talks,” Breen said, citing last year’s deal that will see Iran rein in its nuclear programme in return for sanctions relief.He said that concerns about the human rights situation, particularly capital punishment, will be raised but said the focus would be “building relations with Iran again” and added that it could lay the foundations for future trade missions by senior government ministers.An Oireachtas spokesperson said that the visit is “primarily aimed at bolstering trade links between Ireland and Iran”.Meetings will take place over the weekend as Friday is traditionally a rest day. A request to make a courtesy call on the Iranian president Hassan Rouhani has been made, but Breen said he is not sure if it will be granted.The government closed its embassy in Iran in February 2012, a decision which was announced at the same time as the controversial closure of the Vatican embassy as part of efforts to make savings in overseas missions.Ireland had had an embassy in Iran since 1976, three years before the Iranian revolution which brought about the fall of the Shah and the rise of the Islamic republic which remains to this day.At the time the closure was announced, the government cited trade volumes which had ‘fallen short of expectations’ and pressures on public finances as the reasons for its closure.The visit will begin just as the Taoiseach Enda Kenny and Jobs Minister Richard Bruton conclude their trade mission to three Gulf states with talks taking place in Saudi Arabia, Qatar and Iran this week.Read: Taoiseach and Jobs Minister kick off Gulf trade mission in Saudi ArabiaRead: Israel blasts Iran nuclear deal as a ‘historic mistake’last_img read more

Travel advice updated for Greece

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Protests, bombings and violence on the streets are just some of the issues the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade are warning travellers off to Athens. The economic uncertainty has definitely affected the safety rating of the city, making Smartraveller update its travel warnings for Greece. Although much has not changed, the report singles out Omonia, Syndagma Square and Monastiraki as troublesome spots due to the high level of protests and riots. It says “rioting can break out in Greek cities with little warning. Australians are advised to avoid all protests and demonstrations as they may turn violent”. Smartraveller warns air, sea and rail strikes are very common and advises travellers to make their plans flexible and get in contact with their insurers. The news of government and commercial buildings being targeted by bombs have also made the site. With the additions, the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade has not changed the warning level, keeping it to “exercise normal safety precautions”, the lowest of the levels. Small levels of pick pocketing in Omonia and Exarchia in central Athens are common. On the other side of the spectrum, countries blacklisted as “Do not travel” by the Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade include Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, Libya and Sudan.last_img read more

Un mandrill captif use dune brindille pour se faire une pédicure

first_imgUn mandrill captif use d’une brindille pour se faire une “pédicure”Relaté dans la revue Behavioural Processes, l’étonnant comportement d’un mandrill du zoo de Chester au Royaume-Uni, façonnant une brindille pour s’en curer ensuite les ongles de pied, a été filmé par un primatologue britannique.Adapter des outils pour un usage spécifique n’est pas un comportement réservé à l’homme et aux grands singes : un scientifique de l’Université de Durham (Royaume-Uni) a filmé au zoo de Chester un mandrill mâle en train de tailler une brindille, puis d’utiliser cet instrument ainsi affiné pour nettoyer les ongles de ses orteils.À lire aussiLa réaction hilarante d’un orang outan face à un tour de magie”L’écart entre ces singes et les grands singes n’est pas aussi important que nous le pensions en termes d’utilisation d’outils et de leur modification. (…) Les animaux ont plus de temps en captivité pour effectuer des tâches qui ne sont pas axées sur la recherche de nourriture ou l’accouplement. Ainsi, dans les zoos, on peut parfois relever des comportements qui sont un peu étranges”, commente le Dr Riccardo Pansini, qui a filmé la scène dans le cadre d’une étude comportementale sur le stress chez les mandrills.Néanmoins, tous les spécialistes ne sont pas d’accord sur les conclusions apportées par cette scène. “Pour moi, ce comportement est plus proche de ce que nous savons déjà d’autres espèces, utilisant un petit bâton pour l’auto-nettoyage, que de la réelle modification de l’outil, comme chez les chimpanzés – qui effilent une brindille à travers leurs dents pour construire un ‘balai’ à rassembler les termites. Mais ces définitions sont toujours délicates… On pourrait dire que, dès que l’animal arrache une branche d’un arbre, il modifie cette branche”, nuance ainsi le Dr Amanda Seed, spécialiste de la question à l’Université de St Andrews. Outil ou non, reste que le comportement du singe du zoo de Chester est surprenant à observer et démontre encore une fois l’intelligence de ces primates.

Irma strengthens into Category 5 hurricane nears Caribbean

first_imgSAN JUAN, Puerto Rico — Hurricane Irma grew into a dangerous Category 5 storm, the most powerful seen in the Atlantic in over a decade, and roared toward islands in the northeast Caribbean Tuesday on a path that could eventually take it to the United States.The U.S. National Hurricane Center said Irma was a “potentially catastrophic” storm with maximum sustained winds of 180 mph (285 kph) as it bore down on the twin-island nation of Antigua and Barbuda. It was centered about 225 miles (365 kilometers) east of Antigua in the late morning and moving west at 14 mph (22 kph).The center said there was a growing possibility that the storm’s effects could be felt in Florida later this week and over the weekend, though it was still too early to be sure of its future track.If it stays on track and reaches the Florida Straits, the water there is warm enough that the already “intense” storm could become much worse with wind speeds potentially reaching 225 mph, warned Kerry Emanuel, an MIT meteorology professor.“People who are living there (the Florida Keys) or have property there are very scared, and they should be,” Emanuel said.Irma’s center was expected to move over portions of the northern Leeward Islands late Tuesday and early Wednesday, the hurricane center said, warning of “a life-threatening storm surge and large breaking waves” that could raise water levels up to 7 to 11 feet above normal.last_img read more

Dengue snatches three more lives

first_imgAn aedes mosquito. File PhotoThree more persons have died of dengue and 1,460 others have been infected with the mosquito-borne disease, showing a fall in the number of dengue patients than Friday’s 1,719, reports UNB.The fresh deaths were recorded in Dhaka and Faridpur on Saturday while the new infections in 24 hours till Saturday morning.In Dhaka, a woman lost her battle to dengue while undergoing treatment at Dhaka Medical College Hospital (DMCH) in the morning.The deceased was Monwara Begum, 45, wife of Saiful Islam of Chamakpur village in Mithamain upazila of Kishoreganj district.Saiful said Monwara was admitted to Kishoreganj Sadar Hospital after she was diagnosed with dengue about 10 days back.She was taken to the DMCH on 13 August where she died at the intensive care unit around 10:45am, he said.In Faridpur, two persons, including a college student, died of dengue at Faridpur Medical College Hospital. The deceased were Sumon Bashar Raj, 18, son of Mizanur Rahman of Changpur village in Magura district and a second-year student of a government college in Magura, and Yunus Sheikh, 55, son of Aynal Sheikh of Rajbari.Mostafizur Rahman Bulu, assistant director of the hospital, said Sumon was admitted to the hospital on 12 August and he breathed his last around 10:00am.The victim’s father said Sumon was detected with dengue at Magura Hospital on 8 August and later sent to the medical college hospital.Yunus died of the mosquito-borne disease at the hospital around 7:00pm, said hospital director Kamda Prasad Saha.He was taken to the hospital on 12 August with dengue, he said.Of the new dengue infections, 621 were reported in Dhaka city alone while the rest in other divisions, according to the Health Emergency Operation Centre and Control Room of the Directorate General of Health Services (DGHS).The number of dengue patients was 1,719 on Friday while 1,929 on Thursdays and 1,880 on Wednesday.The government has so far confirmed 40 deaths although unofficial estimates suggest the death toll is much higher.The DGHS said 51,476 people were hospitalised with dengue since January this year. Of them, 43,580 had made full recovery.Currently, 7,856 patients are undergoing treatment at different hospitals and clinics.Bangladesh is grappling with its worst outbreak of dengue. Dhaka, the densely-populated megacity, has been at the centre of the outbreak.There is no specific treatment for dengue or severe dengue, WHO says. But early detection and access to proper medical care lowers fatality rates below one per cent.last_img read more

This Is It Im Going To Die

first_img by NPR News Lauren Frayer 8.21.19 12:11pm Last year, a long-distance truck driver, Mohammad Hashim, was hauling a load of refrigerators out of New Delhi when a dozen strangers on motorbikes forced him off the road.They pulled him out of his truck and demanded he open the back. They wanted to see if Hashim was transporting cows or beef — which is illegal in many Indian states, because cows are sacred in Hinduism, the majority religion in India.”But I’m just the driver, and I’m not allowed to open the back of the truck. It was locked,” Hashim, 45, recalls. “So they pulled on my beard and tried to force me to chant ‘Jai Shri Ram.'”That slogan — which means “Praise Lord Ram,” a Hindu god — has long been known as a prayer. Now it’s an incitement to mob violence against India’s minorities.Hashim, a Muslim, refused to chant in praise of a Hindu god. So the men started beating him.”I thought, ‘This is it. I’m going to die,'” he recalls. “Then I went unconscious.”A surge in lynchingsSince the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party won power in India five years ago, lynchings of the country’s minorities have surged. In February, Human Rights Watch reported at least 44 such murders between May 2015 and December 2018. Hundreds more people have been injured in religiously motivated attacks.Most of the victims are Muslims, members of the country’s largest religious minority. They comprise about 15% of India’s 1.3 billion people. Other victims include lower-caste Hindus and Christians.Most of the attackers are devout Hindu men, known as “cow vigilantes,” who take it upon themselves to enforce beef bans. Some of them claim ties to the BJP. Last year, a BJP minister met with a group of men convicted of a lynching and draped them in flower garlands.After Prime Minister Narendra Modi won a second term in a landslide victory in May, a new parliament was sworn in, dominated by his BJP. As opposition lawmakers, particularly one Muslim politician, recited the oath of office, some BJP lawmakers taunted them with chants of “Jai Shri Ram.”Last month, a BJP state minister was filmed heckling a Muslim lawmaker and trying to force him to chant “Jai Shri Ram” outside the Jharkhand state assembly.In an April report, the U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom condemned what it called the Indian government’s “allowance and encouragement of mob violence against religious minorities.” In June, after a lynching in Jharkhand, the U.S. commission called on the Indian government to “take concrete actions that will prevent this kind of violence and intimidation.”Article 15 of India’s constitution prohibits discrimination based on religion. Human rights groups are lobbying for the creation of a specific hate crimes law, but none exists in India yet.”It’s like they are trying to erase us”One of India’s most infamous recent lynching cases was that of Pehlu Khan, 55, a Muslim dairy farmer from Haryana state.In April 2017, Khan and his two sons were driving home from a cattle fair in neighboring Rajasthan, with two cows and two calves in the back of their truck, when strangers on motorcycles surrounded them.”I showed them receipts for the cows we’d bought, but they tore them up — and started beating us with hockey sticks,” says Khan’s son Mohamed Irshad, 27. “I suffered internal bleeding. My brother and I barely survived — and all of India saw what happened to our father.”That’s because the attackers themselves recorded a video of their assault and posted it on social media. In a two-minute clip, the men praise Hindu gods as they punch and kick Khan. His white tunic splattered with blood, the father of eight pleads for his life, calling his attackers “brother.”That graphic video is how Khan’s widow Jaibuna, who goes by one name, learned of her husband’s death. She was waiting for him to return home from the cattle fair when a neighbor ran up and showed her the clip on his cell phone.”People were saying, ‘Don’t show her, this is her family!'” recalls Jaibuna, who is in her mid-40s but doesn’t know her exact age. “Everyone was panicking, and I couldn’t take it. I fainted.”Before he died, Khan was able to describe his attackers to police. Six men were arrested. Charges against them were dropped, then reinstated, and the case remained in limbo for two years — until last week, when a court acquitted all of them, citing lack of evidence.Instead, Khan was charged posthumously with cow smuggling. Police say he didn’t have a permit to transport cows across state lines. Khan’s two sons, who were with him that day, await trial — and if convicted, face the possibility of up to five years in prison.”It’s like they are trying to erase us — erase all of my people,” Jaibuna says in the muddy courtyard of their family farm.The family has sold off their cattle, to avoid further attacks. They’re frightened. A sole buffalo remains on their farm, along with some chickens.Former BJP lawmaker Gyan Dev Ahuja, who represented the Rajasthan district where Khan was murdered, has said he has “no regret over his death.” He called Khan a “sinner.”A lack of public outcryVideos of religiously motivated attacks in India like the one that killed Khan continue to go viral. There’s a new clip on social media practically every week.But prosecutions — of the attackers, at least — are rare. So is public outrage.”How does a majority stay silent and witness something, unless you believe that what’s happening is the right thing?” asks author Rana Ayyub, who went undercover to write a book about the BJP’s role in anti-Muslim riots in Modi’s home state of Gujarat, where Modi served as chief minister before becoming prime minister.The lack of public outcry over the surge in lynchings shows that India’s Hindu majority tacitly supports not murder, Ayyub says, but some discrimination against Muslims.Some Indian analysts say the situation in India is comparable to the post-Civil War period in the United States, when many white people looked on as black people were lynched.”The similarities with the American lynchings of the late 19th century are striking,” says Prabhir Vishnu Poruthiyil, a business professor at the Indian Institute of Technology Bombay who has studied corporate India’s lack of response to hate crimes.”Most of the upper-middle class that populate[s] the corporate classes, they’re also upper-caste Hindus,” Poruthiyil explains. “Even if they don’t agree with the lynching itself, they might be OK with the idea of stopping cow slaughter. It’s a slippery slope.”As a child in Mumbai, Ayyub survived Hindu-Muslim riots in 1992 and 1993, which killed several hundred people. But she says what’s happening now feels worse, because it’s not a “spur of the moment” outpouring of anger. There are very specific targets.”Now lynchings are organized on social media,” Ayyub says. “People send messages to each other, saying, ‘Hey, this household has beef in their fridge, let’s go attack them.”She says India’s Muslims increasingly perceive such attacks as being against them, rather than in defense of cows and Hindu customs. The repercussions could be dangerous, Ayyub warns. She’s worried that Muslims are being alienated as Hindu nationalists revise mainstream Indian norms along Hindu lines.”When you try to stifle a community, when you try to put them down, when you try to make them secondary citizens, their anger will burst on the streets,” Ayyub says. “That’s how you radicalize people.”Offering helpThere is a small, fledgling movement of Indians — Muslims and Hindus — working to fight hate crimes and help victims.In donated office space in New Delhi, four cellphones are lined up on a desk. When one line is busy, the next one rings. This is the headquarters of a new hate crimes helpline, created by United Against Hate, a network of volunteers. Organizers say they’ve received 15,000 phone calls since launching in July.Callers “are very upset. They are very worried and say, ‘We are in a difficult position,'” says dispatcher Jagisha Arora. “One person called me and said, ‘I’m at police station right now. Police are refusing to lodge a complaint. They are threatening us.'”Arora, 26, logs details from each call in an Excel spreadsheet and connects callers to free legal aid in 100 different Indian cities.But from time to time, she also gets a different type of call — from people who are angry that this helpline even exists.”Some people call to complain, like, ‘Why are you spreading this?’ They accuse me and say Muslims are bad,” she says, shaking her head. Fears persistHashim, the truck driver, survived his lynching on the highway outside New Delhi. After the attack, he was bedridden for six months with a broken leg and fractured vertebrae.He can’t read or write, so his supervisor at the trucking company — a Hindu — helped him file a police report. Nothing has come of it.Now it’s time for Hashim to get back on the road. He needs to provide for his five children.”My children say, ‘Don’t worry about us, Daddy. We can stay poor. We’ll eat less. We want you to be safe,'” Hashim says.They’re scared that next time, their father might not come home.Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit NPR. ‘This Is It.

Possibility of new public beach club for Cancun Hotel Zone

first_imgCancun, Q.R. — The Cancun Hotel Zone could see the opening of a public beach club at one of the zone’s most popular areas.The new project would be the Tortugas Beach Club, located in the Cancun Hotel Zone. Project promoter, Alfredo Neme Martínez, says he has submitted the Environmental Impact Assessment before the Ministry of the Environment and Natural Resources for approval.According to the proposal, if given the green light, the Tortugas Beach Club would offer “Construction and operation of a beach club, which will consist of a specialty restaurant, bar, beach club, sun areas, rest areas, commercial premises and common areas and services, which will occupy a total area of 1,574.66 square meters. The total area of the property is 3,175.44 square meters.”The space that would be home to the new beach club is the old Fat Tuesday disco, which was located at Playa Tortugas until it was demolished in 2017. The area has always been popular with both locals and tourists, having seen its highlight in the 1990s when it was used by spring break crowds and became the stage for MTV videos.However, after hurricane Wilma in 2005 and legal issues after that, the building was eventually shut down and remained closed until it was torn down last year. For several years, attempts have been made to revitalize the area and use that space.In 2016, when Francisco López Reyes held the position of Director of Municipal Tourism of Benito Juárez, he created the Rescue Program for Premises and Abandoned Properties in the area of beaches through the Urban Image Commission of Cancun, of which the Tortugas Beach Club is a part.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Available for treatment of early stage breast cancer, endometrial cancer, and skin cancer, the Axxent System is also FDA-cleared for the treatment of other cancers or conditions where radiation therapy is indicated, including IORT (intra-operative radiation therapy).Xoft also announced that Axxent eBx Systems have been installed recently at several luminary accounts, including UCLA Medical Center, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Beth Israel Medical Center. The systems are currently being used to clinically treat patients for breast, endometrial and skin cancer, and will also be used for clinical studies investigating additional IORT applications. As a platform technology, the Axxent System addresses a variety of oncological and non-oncological indications. Designed to deliver non-isotopic therapy directly to cancer sites during or following surgical removal, the Axxent System utilizes a proprietary miniaturized X-ray source and robotic controller and can be used to deliver radiation in minimally shielded therapeutic settings. Treatment can be performed without the need for a shielded room, allowing the radiation oncologist and other medical personnel to be present during treatment delivery which minimizes patient anxiety.

Cuomo of New York has signed into law Breast Density Inform legislation. The legislation, which was sponsored by Senator John Flanagan and Assembly member Ellen Jaffee and passed the New York State Legislature unanimously in June, makes New York State only the fourth state to require the inclusion of breast density information in the letter sent to women after a mammogram.Patient-turned-advocate JoAnn Pushkin, who requested the legislation, was diagnosed with a later stage cancer only months after receiving a “normal” mammogram report. Pushkin was never told her dense breast tissue could dramatically compromise the effectiveness of her mammogram, nor was she referred on for further screening that might have detected her cancer earlier. A mammogram performed the same day Pushkin’s tumor was large enough to feel still failed to “see” her tumor — though an ultrasound revealed a tumor that had been growing for an estimated five years.For decades, study after study has shown that breast density is the strongest predictor of the failure of mammography screening to detect cancer. As breast density increases, the ability of the mammogram to find cancer decreases, leading to cancers finally discovered when at a later stage. Breast density also increases a woman’s risk for developing breast cancer. According to the American College of Radiology (ACR), “Breast density in and of itself has been shown by several studies to be an independent risk factor for the development of breast cancer, with the relative risk for women with the most dense breasts two to six times that of women with the least dense breasts.”Connecticut was the first state to enact Breast Density Notification legislation in 2009. According to Dr. Nancy M. Cappello, president and founder of Are You Dense Inc. and Are You Dense Advocacy Inc. (AYDA), results from a Connecticut follow-up study about to be published found that the number of cancers detected nearly doubled when a mammogram was supplemented with an ultrasound in women with dense breasts. “Extrapolated nationally, the data suggest that approximately 45,000 women annually leave their mammogram with a ‘normal’ result, though they actually have breast cancer invisible by mammogram screening alone. New York’s Breast Density Inform law ensures that women are aware of the risks and challenge of their dense tissue — it is a major advancement in early detection,” she said. The bill received the support of the New York State Radiological Society and The Medical Society State of New York, as well as numerous nursing, patient and advocacy organizations. The law becomes effective 180 days from signing.Connecticut, Texas and Virginia have Breast Density Inform laws enacted. With the support of AYDA, 13 states have introduced legislation this 2012 session and Federal Bill HR3102 was introduced last year.For more information: www.areyoudense.org  FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 read morelast_img read more

first_img by Mike Cidoni Lennox, Sandy Cohen And Lindsey Bahr, The Associated Press Posted Feb 5, 2018 11:10 pm PDT Last Updated Feb 6, 2018 at 6:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. – The Oscar nominees luncheon brings together A-listers and rising stars — artists from every aspect of filmmaking — for an afternoon of celebration and mutual fandom.With little on the agenda other than posing for a group photo, Monday’s gathering was a chance for nominees to bask together in their exalted status together before the Academy Awards are presented on March 4.The atmosphere makes for some fun moments.First-time acting nominees Timothee Chalamet and Daniel Kaluuya high-fived at every opportunity. Greta Gerwig and Meryl Streep chatted on the risers before the class photo next to a cardboard cutout of Agnes Varda brought to the event by her “Faces Places” co-director JR.Gerwig playfully choked best supporting actor nominee Sam Rockwell on the red carpet, and many of the stars and filmmakers exchanged laughs as they assembled — all 170 of them — for the class photo.The nominee having the most fun was Kobe Bryant, whose “Dear Basketball” is up for animated short. Bryant wore a permanent grin and posed for photos with anyone who asked.The event includes some pointers about giving good speeches , and also a chance for nominees to reflect on their place in this Oscars season.Here are some more moments from interviews with nominees conducted by The Associated Press at the nominees’ luncheon event:___BEST PICTURE MISTAKE STILL STINGSReturning Academy Awards host Jimmy Kimmel has been poking fun at last year’s best picture mix up in promotional spots for this year’s Oscars, but it’s not a laughing matter for some.“La La Land” lyricist Justin Paul says the envelope gaffe was a bit of a soft spot for some of his friends and colleagues involved in the film. Paul says that he understands why it’s still being talked about and to not mention it at all would be awkward.“We have some wonderful, brilliant friends and colleagues who you know, it was a little bit of a soft spot, a sore spot in that moment, so we can totally understand it but I don’t know if we’re the ones laughing along the most,” Paul said Monday.“La La Land” was mistakenly announced as the best picture winner at last year’s Oscars before the error was caught and “Moonlight” was named the winner of the evening’s top prize.Paul and Benj Pasek are nominated year for “The Greatest Showman” song “This is Me.”They said that they’re able to enjoy awards season a little more this time and are five per cent less terrified at every event.___DEE REES LOOKS BEHIND HER HISTORIC NOMINATION“Mudbound” director and co-writer Dee Rees said Monday she is more interested in the future than she is excited about making history.Rees recently became the first black woman to get nominated for a best adapted screenplay Academy Award. “Mudbound” also scored another historic nomination for cinematographer Rachel Morrison, who became that category’s first female nominee.Rees said she wants the entertainment industry to get to a place where this is an everyday occurrence and not news.“I think it’s like cause for reflection and to really ask ourselves you know could there have been other moments and why is this the first time,” Rees said. “And again I think it’s more about using the moment to think how do we make the future a place where this isn’t news making or this is an everyday occurrence.”Unlike many of the nominees, her film was released by Netflix on the streaming platform. Rees says it proves that audiences are interested in content and not business models. She says watching Indiana Jones on television growing up didn’t impact her awe of the filmmaking.___OH, I GET IT NOW“The Shape of Water” director Guillermo del Toro was still riding high Monday from his Directors Guild Award win on Saturday night. The Mexican director was all smiles thinking about the evening with his peers.Del Toro said the night was fun and praised Judd Apatow’s hosting skills, although he admitted that one joke aimed at him went over his head at the time.Apatow poked fun during Saturday’s ceremony at del Toro’s director’s photo, quipping that it was like an eHarmony profile picture.Del Toro said Monday that he didn’t actually know what eHarmony was when Apatow made the joke and that he had to look it up. He thinks it’s quite funny now.___BRUISED, BUT NOT GIVING UP ON BASKETBALLCommon was looking so dapper Monday for the nominees’ luncheon you could hardly tell he was trying to hide a black eye.The musician and producer said he was trying to look good after getting beat up on the basketball court this weekend. Common donned a pair of glasses in hopes of hiding the little remaining bruise, although he was quick to pull out his phone and show photos of how his face looked after the accidental hit.Common laughed that might have gotten a mild concussion from it.It certainly didn’t sour him on basketball: he was one of numerous stars who posed for photos with retired Lakers star Kobe Bryant, who is nominated for his short animated film “Dear Basketball.”Common is nominated for a best original song alongside Diane Warren for “Stand Up for Something” from the film “Marshall.”___For full coverage of awards season, visit: https://apnews.com/tag/AwardsSeason Meryl Streep, from left, and Greta Gerwig react as JR, right, holds a cardboard cut-out of Agnes Varda at the 90th Academy Awards Nominees Luncheon at The Beverly Hilton hotel on Monday, Feb. 5, 2018, in Beverly Hills, Calif.
