NDP officially takes power July 18 inner circle packs experience bite experts

first_imgVICTORIA – The steep political mountain facing John Horgan’s minority government in British Columbia was apparent in the key appointments he made to his inner circle of close advisers, say political observers.Horgan’s cabinet will be sworn in at a ceremony in Victoria on July 18.But his government started taking shape this week with the appointments of a veteran bureaucrat, a key campaign organizer and a political pit bull to the backroom team that will guide Horgan’s New Democrats in a delicately balanced arrangement with the Green party to hold power. The two parties have a one-seat advantage over the Liberals in the legislature.Carole James, a member of the legislature and the party’s transition spokeswoman, said Thursday those in cabinet will be the face of Horgan’s government but the inner circle appointees are the bricks and mortar of his government.Don Wright will be Horgan’s deputy minister and head of the public service. He joins Horgan’s team after working as the CEO at Central 1 Credit Union, but was formerly president of the B.C. Institute of Technology and a bureaucrat in Liberal and NDP governments.Former Vancouver councillor Geoff Meggs was appointed Horgan’s chief of staff. He served as a communications director for former NDP premier Glen Clark in the 1990s.Bob Dewar, who was recruited last year from Manitoba to help run the NDP’s election campaign, will serve as special adviser to the premier.“It’s really important to show John has chosen a leadership team that brings a depth of experience,” said James, who represents a Victoria riding. “I’ve already heard from folks in my community, who also work in the civil service, say it was reassuring to hear Don’s name, someone who has experience … is known to be fair.”Despite the euphoria of the NDP election win, she said the reality that one vote could topple the NDP is a constant reminder of the party’s position and something Wright, Meggs and Dewar will make sure nobody forgets.“I don’t underestimate the hard work,” James said. “It’s going to be a load on all of us in the legislature.”Former NDP premier Dan Miller said Meggs will be pivotal in keeping the government working, which means limiting surprises and keeping everybody informed, including the three Green party members whose support is key to the NDP’s survival.“It will be fairly tight in there and I think Geoff is a very good guy to interact with all of the parties that need to make this happen and make it work,” he said. “He’s a very cool guy, level headed.”Meggs also has a reputation for being able to resolve difficult issues, said Miller, who worked with him in the 1990s and before that when Meggs edited a fishermen’s union newspaper.“In many ways it used to be said in Vancouver that Geoff was the guy who did the dirty work on the city council,” Miller said. “He was the guy on the ground for Mayor Gregor Robertson.”Prof. David Black said the NDP chose talent and experience in placing Wright, Meggs and Dewar in the top advisory posts.“One person crosses the floor and it’s over,” said Black, a political communications specialist at Victoria’s Royal Roads University. “We have in the NDP and Green government one that is, of course, a precarious one. It’s going to be a stressful government because the one-seat majority doesn’t leave people feeling relaxed and comfortable.”Dewar, who served as an adviser to former Manitoba NDP premier Gary Doer, will be Horgan’s go-to person, Black predicted.“A large part of what he will be doing is talking to the Greens and scanning the political environment,” he said. “This is going to be a government governing as if an election is imminent and that changes how they behave and amplifies the importance of a special adviser like Bob Dewar.”last_img read more

Agarwal’s campaign has been focused on reaching out to voters in the forms of padyatras, two of which were held on Saturday in Gandhi Market and Lal Kuan. He met voters and urged people to vote for him and his party to form the government at Centre. Agarwal thanked his supporters and party workers and said that their support gives him hope for the nation.

Belgian MP Describes Muslim Immigration as Invasion

Rabat- A Belgian MP from the right-wing Belgian People’s Party has told the members of British Party, UKIP, that Muslim immigration to Europe is a “Trojan horse-style invasion,” the Guardian reported.Aldo Garcaci (pictured) told a UKIP, the United Kingdom Independence Party, conference in Blackpool that “Muslim immigration from across the Mediterranean is getting totally out of proportion.”Garcaci can be heard saying in an audio recording obtained by the Guardian: “It is not immigration, it’ is invasion. Europe is totally inefficient in tackling it.” According to the same source, the Belgian MP told people attending the UKIP conference that: “It’s an invasion, it’s a Trojan horse…It is for us, we are in the end of civilization. Because if we continue to accept the Muslim immigration, for us, it’s a big problem.”The MP’s comments seemed to bother the UKIP Party. “Mr. Garcaci is not a member of UKIP, a spokesman of UKIP was quoted by the Guardian as saying, but added that” nor do we sanction his phraseology (…) “It is true that migration is out of control.”The Belgian People’s Party is in the same pan-European Political group as UKIP, the Alliance for Direct Democracy in Europe (ADDE). The latter includes anti-immigration parties from across Europe.UKIP have many times come under fire for comments that have been described as Islamophobic.The Party’s leader Nigel Farage said in an interview that some Muslims want to form “a fifth column and kill us”, and that there has never before been a migrant group that wants to “change who we are and what we are.”The UKIP Party also calls for reducing the numbers of immigrants by leaving the European Union and to ban unskilled migrants for five years and bring in an Australian-style points-based immigration system. read more

Ohio State cancels football series with North Carolina

Members of the OSU football team huddle around coach Urban Meyer during the first day of fall practice Aug. 4 at the Woody Hayes Athletic Center in Columbus.Credit: Tim Moody / Lantern sports editorTwo potential Ohio State football games have ended before they were ever started.OSU’s scheduled home-and-home series with the University of North Carolina, originally set for the 2017 and 2018 seasons, has been cancelled, according to OSU associate athletic director Martin Jarmond.Jarmond, who handles most of OSU’s football scheduling, confirmed the cancellation to The Lantern, saying that it was a mutual decision between both schools, based upon the switch to a nine-game in-conference schedule in the Big Ten and other scheduling changes underway in the ACC.“We worked with UNC to provide both us and them some scheduling flexibility with the things going on in the Big Ten and some things that they were doing in the ACC,” Jarmond said. “We tried to make it work, but we couldn’t get it done.”With games cancelled in both 2017 and 2018, Jarmond said OSU will fill the two holes in the schedule left by the Tar Heels sooner rather than later.“We’re going to have something very soon with that game in ’17 and that game in ’18,” Jarmond said. “We’ve been working with other non-conference schools to get those games scheduled.”When the Big Ten made the change to create a nine-game in-conference schedule, Jarmond knew that scheduling issues, such as this one, were bound to arise.“I wouldn’t say you ‘expect’ a series to have to be cancelled, but going to the nine games did create some flux,” Jarmond said. “You know going in that you have to re-adjust and re-calibrate your schedule and you never hope that a series is going to cancel, but we knew with the changes in the Big Ten that it was going to be in flux trying to schedule.”Looking at further future non-conference schedules for OSU, the Buckeyes are still set to face the University of Oklahoma in Columbus in 2017 after a road matchup in 2016 and Texas Christian University away in 2018, before TCU heads back to Columbus the following year.The Buckeyes are set to kick off their 2014 season against Navy at noon on Aug. 30 at M&T Bank Stadium in Baltimore. read more

OSU searches for luck of the Irish in trip to Notre Dame

The Ohio State men’s hockey team (2-4-0) stays on the road to compete against the No. 11 Notre Dame Fighting Irish (3-3-0) in a two game series Friday and Saturday. The Irish are the defending CCHA regular season and tournament champions.After losing the first game of a two-game series against Lake Superior State last weekend by a score of 3-2, OSU had to find a way to rally back in the second contest.The Buckeyes were trailing 2-0 in the first period, but tied the game after goals by Matt Bartkowski and Sergio Somma. After Lake Superior State put another puck in the net, Peter Boyd and Patrick Schafer responded with goals of their own to give the Buckeyes their second victory of the season.The Buckeyes hope to ride Saturday’s 4-3 comeback victory over Lake Superior State into South Bend, Ind. The Irish, however, have been one of the most dominant teams in college hockey in the past three seasons. Since 2006, they have posted 90-29-10 overall record and a nation-best .742 winning percentage. Notre Dame won the CCHA regular season titles in the 2006-07 and 2008-09 seasons. The team also competed in the 2008 national title game, but fell to Boston College.The team has gotten off to a disappointing start compared to last season as the Irish are currently sitting at a .500 winning percentage. Notre Dame’s most notable win this season was a 3-0 victory at Boston University, its only away game of the premature season.Notre Dame had to replace six seniors who were vital parts of its team last season, but brought back a crop of athletes to fill in the holes left by the graduating senior class.Junior defenseman Ian Cole was a first team All-American last season and senior right wing Erick Condra was a second team All-American. Senior left wing Ryan Thang will wear the captain stitching for the 2009-2010 season. Thang is tied for first all-time with 13 game-winning goals.Jeff Jackson is in his fifth season on the bench as the Irish’s coach. During his Irish career, he has compiled a 103-48-14 record. Jackson was the 2006-07 Coach of the Year, leading Notre Dame to the first Frozen Four appearance in school history.OSU split the series versus Notre Dame last season, winning, 4-1, and losing, 4-3, in overtime at the Schottenstein Center.  It does not look as if Buckeyes coach John Markell has selected a true starting goalie for his team yet. Cal Heeter and Dustin Carlson each started one of the games in the past series versus Lake Superior State. Heeter has been in goal when the Buckeyes have won both of their contests, but Markell still has not made the decision if there will be one starting goalie this season.The coach has insisted that for his team to be successful he does not need just one starting goalie, just someone to fill in the spot between the posts and help his team win.The Buckeyes will play the Irish at 7:35 p.m. Friday and at 5:05 p.m. Saturday at Joyce Center Rink. read more

Maintaining performing teams in a downturn – SKM

first_imgNow more than ever, management practices and leadership styles are vital for overall team success.  In a report by Sinclair Knight Merz (SKM), an engineering, sciences and project delivery firm, the effect of a downturn in activities and subsequent redundancies, role changes and skill gaps, on team morale and performance is outlined. It also discusses the ways in which leaders inspire staff in such an environment, which, in turn, has a significant impact on project success. SKM: “The ageing population and the shrinking workforce add to the imperative to adopt effective management techniques to attract, retain and motivate your team.“Management behaviour and leadership style are key factors for successful team performance. In the mining project environment, where multiple subcontractors from different corporate cultures, and with varying levels of commitment and behaviours come together to deliver a project, it is even more vital to ensure that teams are managed effectively for successful outcomes.”SKM says that this report affects Project Managers concerned with attracting, motivating and retaining team members during a downturn in activities and subsequent redundancies and role changes. These Managers should address the effectiveness of their leadership style to minimise the adverse impacts of a weakened team and skill gaps, to improve overall project success.The author of this report, Ed Northcote, is a Senior Project Manager with SKM, based in Brisbane, Australia. Northcote has over 20 years’ experience providing project management to the mining industry in the various stages of the project life cycle for engineering, procurement and construction management.  He is also qualified in engineering, business management and science.To read the whole report go to: www.skmconsulting.com/knowledge_insights/Publications/Articles/2009/building-high-performance-teams.htmlast_img read more

first_imgNutrien Ltd and Tianqi Lithium Corporation announced today that they have signed an agreement, whereby Tianqi Lithium has agreed to purchase 62,556,568 “A shares” of Sociedad Química y Minera de Chile SA (SQM) held by Nutrien for consideration of $65 per share in cash. The announced transaction represents the entirety of Nutrien’s “A shares” at a gross valuation of approximately $4.07 billion.SQM is an integrated producer and distributor of lithium, iodine, specialty plant nutrients, potassium-related fertilisers and industrial chemicals. Nutrien still retains ownership of 20,166,319 SQM “B shares” and expects to divest these shares in due course.“The announced sale of the majority of our SQM holdings marks another key integration milestone for Nutrien. With growing free cash flow, combined with the significant proceeds from this sale, Nutrien further enhances our balance sheet and liquidity, and places us in a strong position to execute on our capital allocation priorities,” commented Chuck Magro, Nutrien’s President and CEO.Vivian Wu, President of Tianqi Lithium, commented, “This is an attractive investment for Tianqi Lithium which fits well within our existing business strategy. Tianqi Lithium’s shareholders will greatly benefit from this transaction given SQM’s long-term stable financial returns and steady dividends”.Nutrien’s sale of its SQM holdings was required by the Competition Commission of India and Ministry of Commerce in China in providing their clearance for the merger of Agrium and PotashCorp which formed Nutrien. The agreement is subject to customary closing conditions, including regulatory approvals and Tianqi Lithium shareholder approval, and is expected to be completed by the fourth quarter of this year.last_img read more

Pour Steve Jobs Flash cest de lAdobe

first_imgPour Steve Jobs, Flash, c’est de l’AdobeÉtats-Unis – Hier, dans une lettre ouverte publiée sur la Toile, Steve Jobs a énuméré une à une les raisons pour lesquelles il ne veut pas de Flash sur iPhone ou iPad. Dans cette épître électronique longue de trois pages, le PDG d’Apple explique au grand public pourquoi les animations et vidéos au format Flash, bien que répandues sur Internet, sont interdites sur les produits Apple. Steve Jobs détaille les six raisons qui ont motivé cette interdiction, affirmant que cette décision a été prise en fonction de critères techniques, et non commerciaux comme le font croire certains représentants d’Adobe.”Flash a été créé durant l’ère des PC pour les PC et les souris”, écrit le patron d’Apple à Adobe, leur demandant de se concentrer davantage sur le futur “au lieu de critiquer Apple pour avoir tiré un trait sur le passé”. Il ajoute que, même s’il est bien implanté sur Internet, Flash ne reste qu’un plugin “100% propriétaire qu’Apple ne peut pas améliorer”. Il se justifie en ajoutant que Flash est “lent et peu sécurisé”. D’autres arguments suivent. Steve Jobs affirme que Flash réduirait l’autonomie des appareils nomades et ne tirerait pas partie des gestes tactiles. De plus, ce plugin “ne serait pas si indispensable pour profiter d’Internet, puisque les vidéos de YouTube et d’autres sites ont déjà été converties dans un format lisible par les appareils d’Apple, le H.264”.En définitive, “Flash n’est pas stable” et “n’a jamais bien fonctionné sur les mobiles”. Le patron de la marque à la pomme conclut en affirmant que “Flash tire la qualité vers le bas”. Le 30 avril 2010 à 12:25 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

La disparition des abeilles est toujours préoccupante

first_imgLa disparition des abeilles est toujours préoccupanteLes abeilles, se trouvant parmi les meilleurs agents naturels de pollinisation, sont en train de disparaître à vive allure. Le Programme des Nations unies pour l’Environnement (PNUE) interpelle les différents États sur le phénomène inquiétant de la disparition de masse de ces insectes si précieux.Après un déclin amorcé en 1960, les abeilles sont aujourd’hui devenues une véritable espèce menacée d’extinction. A l’approche de la conférence sur le développement durable qui se tiendra à Rio de Janeiro au Brésil en 2012, le Programme des Nations unies pour l’Environnement (PNUE) a ainsi décidé d’interpeller les États sur la disparition croissante de colonies entières, mais au combien nécessaires, rapporte RFI.En effet, la présence des abeilles est vitale puisque celles-ci effectuent 80% de la pollinisation de l’environnement végétal permettant ainsi la fécondation des fleurs, fruits, et légumes. Un processus dont dépend donc également le contenu de nos assiettes. Or, le Programme des Nations unies pour l’Environnement (PNUE), a rendu public un récent rapport qui fait état de plusieurs régions avec des taux de mortalité spectaculaires de colonies d’abeilles. Au Japon, celui-ci atteint ainsi près de 25%, alors qu’il est de l’ordre de 30% en France et au Canada, informe RFI. De son côté, le continent africain semble pour le moment épargné, avec toutefois l’apparition, le long du Nil en Egypte, de certains signes de “Colony Collapse Disorder” ou “Syndrome d’effondrement des colonies d’abeilles”.Les abeilles face à plusieurs menacesSi la disparition des abeilles est désormais largement constatée, les scientifiques, tout comme les apiculteurs en ignorent encore la cause exacte. Il s’agirait donc, selon eux, de la combinaison de plusieurs menaces. Parmi celles-ci, le frelon asiatique mangeur d’abeille, mais également les pesticides. En effet, Olivier Belval, président de l’Union nationale des apiculteurs français, a expliqué à RFI : “Si on devait donner une priorité sur les causes de mortalité des abeilles, la toute première, c’est les pesticides. Mais la disparition des abeilles est également liée à un type d’agriculture, notamment la monoculture intensive”.  Par ailleurs, les apiculteurs évoquent également la disparition des fleurs sauvages, ou encore le développement de la présence de parasites telle que la propagation du varroa destructor dans l’hémisphère nord, dont seules l’Australie et certaines régions d’Afrique centrale sont encore épargnées. Agir : entre sensibilisations et mesuresLa bataille pour la préservation des abeilles pourrait passer par la sensibilisation de l’opinion. A Londres, une campagne publicitaire plutôt réussie, intitulée “London’s bees are in trouble” (en français, “les abeilles de Londres ont des ennuis”) tente ainsi d’informer la population sur les gestes simples susceptibles de préserver la vie des abeilles, indique RFI. À lire aussiBiodiversité, Game of Thrones et Mars, les 8 actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 8 maiMais c’est surtout en amont qu’il faut agir selon les apiculteurs. A l’occasion d’une interview parue sur l’Humanité.fr en mai 2011, Olivier Bulval a ainsi rappelé que “la libéralisation totale du marché […] pousse à toujours plus de productivité, de rendement, de surface, d’industrialisation de l’agriculture en général, avec les effets que l’on connaît sur les abeilles”. Il a également soutenu qu’il “faut prendre une mesure conservatoire par rapport aux produits que nous pointons du doigt depuis des années. Cela peut avoir un effet immédiat.”Découvrez la pollinisation des fleurs par les abeilles, insectes si précieux à la biodiversité, en images sur Maxisciences Le 8 août 2011 à 16:57 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Boulder on the inside a pot lawyer grows up fast

first_imgJana Weltzin at her midtown Anchorage office. (Photo: Zahariah Hughes, Alaska Public Media – Anchorage)It’s a tricky time for commercial cannabis in Alaska. Stores around the state are beginning to open, but without enough product available to keep shelves stocked for more than a few hours. The state’s largest market, Anchorage, is seeing delays for businesses because of complicated zoning regulations. And there are concerns that a Justice Department under Senator Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) may reverse tolerant federal guidelines that have let state’s develop marijuana industries.Listen nowAt the center of all this is an emerging legal niche: pot lawyers.On the wall of her midtown office, Jana Weltzin showed off two framed abstract pictures made by her high school best friend.“It’s actually wax,” Weltzin said of one titled ‘Breathe in and Out.’ “I’m not supposed to touch, but I touch it.”Weltzin grew up in Fairbanks, but went to college out of state. She graduated from Arizona State University’s law school in 2012, and started practicing in Phoenix. After Alaskans voted in favor of a recreational cannabis industry in 2014, she saw an opportunity.“Marijuana law is something that’s is so exciting and interesting to me because we’re never going to see something like this happen again in my life time,” Weltzin said. “We’re never going to see an industry come up that’s never existed before.”Welzin is only 30 years old, young for a lawyer who has already had a large role shaping the regulations for a brand new business sector. If she’d been born 15 years earlier, she’d probably be counseling tech start-ups in Silicon Valley. Instead, her cannabis clients stretch from Aniak along the Kuskokwim to Kasilof on the Railbelt, with a few in the Lower 48, as well.According to Weltzin, most of her clients are mom-and-pop operations, in no small part because that’s who’s willing to take the risk in commercial pot’s murky legal landscape.“The cannabis industry, throughout the states that have legalized, has been largely born from small entrepreneurial startups,” Weltzin said. “The risk keeps out the big boys.”Weltzin herself took a risk. Without specifying how much money she’s now making, she said the business is profitable, and that she’s doing better than when she collected a six-figure salary as an assistant attorney at a large corporate firm.Before moving back to Alaska, Weltzin worked at the Rose Law Group in Arizona. There she got experience in the state’s medicinal marijuana industry, an area of the law which happens to involve a lot of rules over building and development.“Just like (Anchorage), there’s a whole land-use component to the cannabis market there, where you have to get special use permits, there’s requirements for buffers, there’s multiple city hearings and public hearings,” Weltzin explained. “Same kind of process we’re going through here.”Weltzin’s been a vocal presence at the state level in guiding legislation through Juneau, as well as giving input on the emerging regulations from the Marijuana Control Board as they’ve been drafted and adopted. She’s also willingly been sucked into much more local battles in Anchorage over Assembly ordinances and zoning codes. The mayor’s office is seeking to appoint her to a vacant seat on the city’s platting board, one of the most important yet dull local bodies governing land use.“I just want to be more engaged in the public process, and able to be more of a boulder on the inside and not so much of a pebble on the outside,” Weltzin said of her interest in the platting seat.The former chair of the Marijuana Control Board, Bruce Schulte, wrote in an email that Weltzin was the “most credible legal counsel in the state” when it came to setting up new pot businesses. He added that the pool is still quite small in Alaska, with other pot attorneys more focused on criminal defense areas of the law.Like many of her Anchorage clients, Weltzin is frustrated that the city’s building code is proving to be such a stumbling block for new businesses — even if it’s a snag she financially benefits from. Still, Weltzin’s impressed by the speed with which the legal industry has come into existence, and the unique victories that have been won in Alaska for measures like on-site consumption.“This is fun,” Weltzin said. “I mean, this is way fun. This is like probably the most exciting, fun, fulfilling two years that I’ve had, period.”For now, Weltzin’s attention is firmly fixed on cannabis laws, which she sees as a “pillar of economic development” that needs to be well implemented from the start.Entrenched in a new industry facing an uncertain future in the Last Frontier, Weltzin is a bit of a pioneer, staking a claim that could be either a bonanza or a bust.last_img read more

Meet the gay guy whose Spice Girls fandom got him through years

first_imgAnti same-sex marriage Arlene Foster to attend LGBT eventTories have officially signed a deal with the DUPNorthern Irish teens: Give us equal marriage for Valentine’s DayRead the full article on Gaystarnews:  :https://www.gaystarnews.com/article/gay-guy-spice-girls/ Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) GAYSTARNEWS- I clearly had a lot of time on my hands, having no social life. When Geri left on a Sunday in May 1998, I cried my eyes out and begged for my mum to let me have the day off because I knew I would be tortured in school that Monday. I was prime bait.I was the butt of everyone’s jokes when Geri left. It was a bully’s paradise. I became a target; the gay boy who adored the Spice Girls, and deserved every insult or punch swung in my direction back in those days in the eyes of those around me. Thank God I had a loving family.Fast forward almost 20 years exactly. I’m invited personally backstage by Melanie C live on radio to her gig in Belfast.Having had some success as a singer/songwriter, I have built a friendships and connections with some of the more popular radio DJs and stations back home.Melanie C was live on air when my radio DJ friend Caroline Fleck on Downtown Radio was promoting her Belfast gig.Caroline decided to tell Melanie on air that I am a super fan. She said I was unable to make her London gig in Shepherd’s Bush Empire because I was singing at The Troxy in London on the same evening.Mel immediately invited to her Belfast gig with a backstage meet. I of course jumped around my bedroom for at least 10 minutes.Standing in the auditorium with my sister and lots of other Melanie C fans a short while later, and about 20 mins before her gig started, one of her management came walking towards me and said ‘Melanie wants you to come back now and say hello’.I’ve never been so excited in my life. I’d met Mel back in 2007 at a signing of her live DVD release on Oxford Street. But this was a full on one-on-one personal moment.I could hardly contain my excitement. It was so amazing to have my older sister with me. She accompanied me to the opening night of the Spice Girls World Tour back in 1998 in Dublin.Mel and I had flowing conversation and she was extremely warm. Firstly we both spoke about the Troxy in London, which is a venue that both of us have performed at. It was so surreal. A really beautiful moment. As I left, I mentioned to her that it would be a dream of mine to cover a Spice Girls/Melanie C track.A few months laster I won the award for ‘Personal Contribution to the LGBT Community’ at the GNI Magazine Awards in Northern Ireland, voted for by the public. It was the proudest moment of my life.So here we are. My version of ‘I Turn To You’. The reason I chose this song is because I really did ‘turn to’ the Spice Girls. There is a really important lyric line in the song: “Where would I be, what would I do if you never helped me through?” I often ask how I would have turned out if I hadn’t of had the Spice Girls to turn to.[embedded content]Words: Conleth Kane Got a news tip? Want to share your story? Email us .center_img Conleth Kane, Spice Girls super fan, back in the year 2000 | Photos courtesy of Conleth Kane To this day, the party most voted for at the polling stations are the DUP – a party who block marriage equality, have linked being gay to child abuse and have given the LGBTI community labels such as ‘repulsive’, ‘unnatural’ and ”immoral’.Northern Ireland remains the only part of the UK and Ireland to have restrictions on same-sex marriage.The message that sends to the LGBTI youth of my home country is that they are in fact ‘different’. It’s heartbreaking. I hope and pray that one day equality can be achieved.Over the past year I have done quite a bit of reflecting on my teenage years and my school life. I count myself very lucky to live in such a wonderful city like London. Here, I am accepted and loved for exactly who I am.It certainly wasn’t easy putting my hand up in class to admit to my teacher and everyone around me that all I wanted to do was leave Lurgan to go and be a singer in London. I have always wanted to come to London and pursue my dreams, and I have five women to thank for that.Their names are Emma Lee Bunton, Melanie Jayne Chisholm, Melanie Janine Brown, Victoria Caroline Beckham and Geraldine Estelle Horner.Apart from having the most genius pop songs under their belt, the Spice Girls brought nothing but extreme comfort and companionship to my life.I didn’t really have any friends, was always the last one to get picked for football in PE. No one would ever sit beside me on the bus; I was on the receiving end of horrible, verbal abuse almost every day of my school life. But I always had their music.I always had their voices ringing in my head and truly followed their positive message and I proudly wore their t-shirt into school on non-uniform day. I was digging my own grave but I really didn’t care!My bedroom was covered in posters, from top to bottom. Despite not even liking the drink, I made sure I bought and collected every Pepsi pull-ring I could so I could send them away to get limited edition goodies.I was a genuine die-hard fan. On Christmas day of 1997, I watched their ‘Live In Istanbul’ concert about 10 times on VHS and only joined my family for about entire 30 minutes the entire day. I lived in my own little Spiceworld.One of the more prominent memories is forging a fake note to go to the ‘dentist’ at 1pm on 3 November 1997. My real plan was to run to Woolworths to collect my reserved copy of ‘Spiceworld‘ the album. Yes. That actually happened.I ran home and I knew every single lyric by the next day. I always knew I was different. Unfortunately for me, ‘different’ just wasn’t accepted in an extremely conservative Northern Ireland in the late 90s.last_img read more

This decision was based, in large part, on compelling clinical evidence of the effectiveness of PET for cancer management and treatment contained in a comprehensive study known as the National Oncologic PET Registry (NOPR).“This is a major victory for patients,” said Robert W. Atcher, Ph.D., M.B.A., president of SNM and University of New Mexico/Los Alamos National Laboratory professor of pharmacy. “CMS’ decision to cover PET scans for cancer demonstrates the intrinsic medical value of PET and important role of these scans in diagnosing, staging, restaging and monitoring treatment for many cancers.”Previously, PET scans for many cancers would be reimbursed only if the PET facility submitted data to the NOPR. Now, all Medicare beneficiaries with certain cancers will be able to receive Medicare coverage for at least one PET scan, as prescribed by their physicians. The nine currently covered cancers—breast, cervix, colorectal, esophageal, head and neck, lymphoma, melanoma, non-small cell lung and thyroid—have all been expanded to cover the subsequent treatment strategy, in addition to initial diagnosis. Additionally, Medicare is now expanding coverage to include ovarian cancer and myeloma, making a total of eleven indications now covered for both the initial diagnosis and subsequent treatment strategy for patients. For all other cancers, PET coverage for subsequent treatment strategy evaluation requires participation in an approved Coverage with Evidence Development (CED) program, such as a modified NOPR.The new CMS decision will save patients thousands of dollars who would otherwise have to pay out-of-pocket for their PET scans. Additionally, this decision increases the likelihood that private insurers will eventually follow CMS’ lead.“For years, physicians and researchers around the world have known that PET is an invaluable diagnostic tool for guiding management of patients with a wide range of cancers,” said Barry Siegel, M.D., co-chair of the NOPR Working Group and chief of the nuclear medicine at the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology, St. Louis, Mo. “The evidence contained in the NOPR study proves the effectiveness of PET as an essential part of a cancer patient’s treatment planning.”To help PET providers better understand the repercussions of the new CMS policy and navigate the new NOPR system effectively, SNM will host a live audio conference, Monday, April 27, 1 p.m. to 2:30 p.m. EDT. For more information or to register for the audio conference, visit www.snm.org/PETChanges. SNM’s Atcher also noted that the organization will continue to work with partner medical and professional organizations to seek coverage for other types of cancers for which PET has a proven medical and therapeutic value. “Our goal is to continue to work tirelessly on behalf of our patients to ensure that all individuals whom physicians believe would benefit from these advanced imaging procedures receive the coverage they need for care,” Atcher added.NOPR was established in 2006 to track the utility of PET in patients with cancer. Studies, which analyzed data from more than 41,000 patients and were published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology and Journal of Nuclear Medicine, showed that the use of PET scanning led to an intended change in cancer management in more than one out of three cases. NOPR is sponsored by the Academy of Molecular Imaging (AMI) and managed by the American College of Radiology (ACR) and ACR Imaging Network (ACRIN). The registry received input from—and is endorsed by—ACR, the American Society for Clinical Oncology (ASCO) and SNM. The NOPR Working Group was chaired by Bruce Hillner, M.D., of Virginia Commonwealth University and co-chaired by Barry Siegel, M.D., Washington University; R. Edward Coleman, M.D., Duke University; and Anthony Shields, M.D., Wayne State University.For more information: www.snm.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | June 07, 2019 Amsterdam University Medical Center Wins MR Solutions’ Image of the Year Award The Amsterdam University Medical Center has won MR Solutions’ Image of the Year 2019 award for the best molecular… read more News | Radiation Therapy | May 31, 2019 RefleXion Opens New Manufacturing Facility for Biology-guided Radiotherapy Platform RefleXion Medical recently announced the opening of its new manufacturing facility at its headquarters in Hayward,… read more center_img News | PET-CT | August 15, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Installation of uExplorer Total-body PET/CT United Imaging announced that its uExplorer total-body positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) system… read more X-ray images such as the one on the left fail to indicate many cases of advanced bone destruction caused by multiple myeloma, says the author of new guidelines on imaging for patients with myeloma and related disorders.

Annual Home Value Appreciation Reaches 6 in July

July marked the 14th straight month of annual home value gains.””After three straight months of annual home value appreciation above 5 percent, the U.S. housing market recovery has proven it is on very sound footing,”” said Zillow chief economist Dr. Stan Humphries. “”We have entered a new phase in the recovery when we can begin to turn away from ugly recent history and turn toward what the housing market of the future will look like and how it will act.”” Despite these strides, however, Humphries noted that this is no time for policymakers and industry professionals to rest on their laurels.””It may be tempting to look at how the market is currently performing and think that tackling GSE reform and other large issues is no longer necessary. But while we can afford to turn away from the recent past, we cannot afford to forget it, and simply ignoring these problems only dooms us to repeat them,”” he said. “”How we handle these all-important policy debates will be critical in keeping the housing market on sound footing for years to come.””Of the 393 metros tracked in July, 289 (73.5 percent) reported month-over-month price appreciation, and 303 (77.1 percent) showed annual appreciation. All 30 of the largest metro areas registered both monthly and yearly appreciation, and all “”have hit their bottom and are expected to show appreciation in the next 12 months,”” Zillow said.Metros with the largest annual increases in July included Sacramento (33.1 percent), Las Vegas (30.8 percent), and San Francisco (27.8 percent).For the 12-month period ending July 2014, national home values are forecast to rise another 4.8 percent to approximately $169,308, according to the Zillow Home Value Forecast. Of the largest metro areas, Sacramento, Riverside, and San Francisco are expected to show the most appreciation over the next year.last_img read more

Uncertainty Tempers Economic and Housing Forecast

first_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Uncertainty Tempers Economic and Housing Forecast January 20, 2017 642 Views The U.S. economy is projected to grow 2 percent in 2017, according to the January 2017 Economic and Housing Outlook from Fannie Mae, though that could change as the new administration’s policies become more clear.The Outlook, released by the Fannie Mae Economic & Strategic Research Group, noted that improved consumer spending in Q3 of 2016 drove the growth rate up slightly from previous forecasts. A friendlier labor market and increasing household wealth may also boost the rate as the year goes on.However, according to Fannie Mae, the lack of clarity on the new administration’s economic policies make the currently predicted growth rate subject to change.“Despite a strong year-end performance by the stock market and a post-election jump in confidence among consumers and businesses,” Fannie Mae’s release stated, “limited information on the new administration’s potential economic policies led to a conservative 2017 growth projects of 2 percent.”In addition to an improvement in the overall economy, Fannie Mae expects fixed business investments to increase, too—especially in the equipment sector. Government spending and inventory investment should also improve growth, the release stated.Mortgage rates have already begun to see change, jumping to an average of 4.3 percent in Q4 of 2016. They could continue to rise as 2017 goes on.“There is risk that rates could rise faster and higher than forecasted, but the impact on housing could be offset by strengthened income growth,” the release stated.Despite the rising rates, Fannie Mae still expects the housing market to continue its upward climb since the recession.“We expect housing to remain resilient and continue its recovery in 2017, with affordability standing out as the industry’s greatest obstacle,” said Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan. “Demographic factors, however, are positive. Our research shows that older millennials have begun to buy homes and close the homeownership attainment gap with their predecessors.”Ultimately, the growth of the economy depends largely on the policies yet to be put in place by President Trump and his administration. Only time will tell what those are and how their impact will be felt.“Policy changes under the new administration—in its nature, sequencing, and magnitude—will determine the direction of economic growth in 2017,” said Fannie Mae Chief Economist Doug Duncan. “Incoming data suggest improving consumer spending, diminished labor market slack, and advancements in wages, but until we can more clearly read the political tea leaves, it’s difficult to say whether this late-cycle expansion will continue into its eighth year. Thus our theme for the year: ‘Will policy changes extend the expansion?’ If stimulus policy is enacted, it would likely add to growth but ‘could also be offset by potential tightened trade policy given the already historically strong dollar.”Click here to read the full Outlook report.center_img Economic and Housing Outlook Fannie Mae 2017-01-20 Seth Welborn Sharelast_img read more
