European Investment Bank delegation to visit Sri Lanka

Vice President McDowell will also inspect ongoing construction work to upgrade wastewater infrastructure in Colombo financed by the European Investment Bank in conjunction with the Asian Development Bank. In January the European Investment Bank agreed to provide EUR 50 million to support improvement and expansion of sewage networks across the Sri Lankan capital Colombo. The loan will help Colombo Municipal Council to achieve its goal of providing full sanitation coverage to benefit people living and working in the greater Colombo area and represented the EIB’s fifth sovereign loan in the country. “The visit by the European Investment Bank is an opportunity for the Sri Lankan Government to showcase their plans for the sustainable development of the country. I am confident that strengthened engagement by the European Investment Bank will lead to new investment across the key sectors that are vital for the modernisation of the country’s infrastructure. These investments have the potential to deliver benefits for all Sri Lankans,” highlighted HE Tung-LaïMargue, European Union Ambassador to Sri Lanka and the Maldives.On Tuesday the European Investment Bank Delegation will visit a number of sites around Colombo to see how new investment is improving the supply of clean water and treatment of waste water in the capital city. The European Investment Bank is one of the world’s largest financiers of water related investment.“I look forward to seeing at first hand the hard work being done across Colombo to improve water services for the city’s inhabitants and discussions with government ministers and other Sri Lankan partners how the European Investment Bank’s unique global experience can contribute to strengthening new sustainable development and climate related investmentacross the country.” added Vice President McDowell. This week’s visit represents the first visit of a Vice President of the European Investment Bank to Sri Lanka in more than five years.“The European Investment Bank has a strong track record of supporting transformational investment that improves lives and economic opportunities across Asia and around the world. This week’s visit to Sri Lanka builds on the fruitful discussions with Minister Karunanayake following the European Investment Bank’s first ever support for water investment in Sri Lanka and the first loan for public sector investment agreed with this government.”confirmed Andrew McDowell, European Investment Bank Vice President, before his arrival in Colombo. A high-level delegation from the European Investment Bank, the world’s largest international public bank, will make a three day official visit to Sri Lanka at the start of a South Asia regional tour, the EU office in Colombo said.Andrew McDowell, newly appointed Vice President of the European Investment Bank responsible for South Asia, will discuss recent engagement and future investment with Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe and senior government ministers, business leaders, members of the diplomatic community and local and international financial institutions. The European Investment Bank is Europe’s long-term lending institution and owned directly by the 28 European Union member states. The European Investment Bank has supported investment in Sri Lanka since 2002 including backing climate related investment, private companies and post-tsunami recovery. The new water investment programme will include provision of a new sewage network in currently un-served areas of Kirillopone. Under the initiative a new wastewater treatment facility will also be built to reduce pollution at the Wellawata sea outfall.The Asian Development Bank will also support the water investment project and this new initiative marks the first time that the European Investment Bank has financed a project alongside another International Financial Institution in Sri Lanka.Looking ahead the European Investment Bank expects to provide more than EUR 1 billion each year to support new investment across Asia. Last year the European Investment Bank Group provided EUR 84 billion to finance new investment around the world, including EUR 19.6 billion for climate related investment.

Aimia investor says it will vote against reelection of board nominees

MONTREAL — The operator of the Aeroplan loyalty rewards program still faces the prospect of a shareholder revolt after a U.S. investor vowed to vote against the existing board of director nominees at this month’s annual meeting.22NW Fund LP of Seattle blames Aimia Inc.’s poor performance and plummeting share price directly on the board’s actions including the “botched” Air Canada renegotiation and the sale of the British program Nector to retailer Sainsbury.The airline served notice last year that it does not plan to renew its 30-plus year partnership when the current contract ends in 2020.“My view is that these people should be fired immediately,” fund manager Aron English said in an interview Friday.The fund said it owns about 4.3 million shares or about three per cent of Montreal-based Aimia.22NW Fund said it will vote at the April 27 annual meeting against chairman Robert Brown and CEO David Johnston along with directors Roman Doroniuk, Thomas Gardner, Emma Griffin, Robert Kreidler and William McExan.It will support new director nominees Brian Edwards, Philip Mittleman and Jeremy Rabe.English said he’s heard from other shareholders who are equally outraged with the board, signalling there’s a “good chance” they’ll win the battle over directors.“This board has driven the share price down 80 per cent in less than a year so yeah I would say that people are pretty unhappy,” he said.Aimia’s share price has fallen to a low of $1.40 from its 2014 peak of $19.88. It was down 1.8 per cent at $1.66 in Friday afternoon trading on the Toronto Stock Exchange.English threatened to take undisclosed action if board members who receive less than half of votes cast refuse to honour the company policy to resign.After meeting with the company several times, he said he’s had enough.“They’ve given it their best shot, they failed and it’s time for somebody else who actually owns equity in the company and is aligned with shareholders to have a shot here.”Aimia didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment.The company averted a battle with its largest shareholder after reaching an agreement with Mittleman Brothers Investment Management, which owns nearly 15 per cent of Aimia.As part of the deal, Rabe and the chief executive for Mittleman Brothers LLC were nominated to the board and signed a standstill agreement.English called that a good first step, but not sufficient to satisfy his concerns.Mittleman has agreed that until July 1, 2019 it won’t take any actions against Aimia, including soliciting proxies, voting any shares, calling a special meeting, proposing the removal of board members, engaging in short selling or making disparaging comments about the company.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter.Companies in this story: (TSX:AIM) read more

Football Wide receiver Binjimen Victors size and maturity making the difference in

Ohio State sophomore wide receiver Binjimen Victor (9) stands up after catching a pass for a touchdown during the second quarter in the Ohio State-Maryland game on Oct. 7. Ohio State won 62-14. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorOver the past two games, no Ohio State wide receiver has demonstrated as much potential as sophomore wideout Binjimen Victor.With six catches for 124 yards and a pair of touchdowns, Victor is quickly showing why coaches have praised the 6-foot-4 wideout, as demonstrated Tuesday afternoon by head coach Urban Meyer’s comparison between Victor and former Ohio State wideouts Michael Thomas and Cris Carter.Though he got off to a slow start to the year, Victor has shown why the Thomas and Carter comparisons are warranted as he has now added the weight needed to fulfill the various responsibilities of a wide receiver in Meyer’s offense, while also putting on display his ability to make leaping, athletic catches over cornerbacks and serve as a red-zone target for quarterback J.T. Barrett.Barrett, who has been the starting quarterback during both the tenures of Thomas and Victor, said Victor has something Thomas lacked: early opportunity.After both were used sparingly as freshmen, Thomas redshirted his second season in Columbus whereas Victor is listed as a starter and has begun to flourish.Though Victor is still far from being the true No. 1 wideout Thomas developed into, Barrett said he believes Victor has that potential if he continues to develop physically.“He’s a taller guy and [strength and conditioning coach Mickey Marotti has] been pushing him in the weight room,” Barrett said. “So make sure he’s physical in that aspect. But I think he’s coming along well.”Out of high school, Victor weighed only 170 pounds. Victor’s height has always given him the potential to be the red-zone, jump-ball target Barrett needed, but his weight limited his usefulness on the field. Meyer has often discussed the importance of being physical enough to block at receiver in order to see extended playing time.Two years since arriving in Columbus, Victor has bulked up to 195 pounds — though he still remains lanky. Victor said his increased size has led to an ability to fulfill the blocking requirement for Meyer’s receivers, aiding him in his quest to see more playing time.“Here you have to block to play receiver and also play special teams,” Victor said. “So offseason I try to work on getting stronger, getting bigger as well, so when it comes to blocking, I can be blocking from my slots and perimeter running.”The ability to block might have been what put him on the field, but he is far from the blocker several other receivers, like redshirt junior Terry McLaurin and sophomore Austin Mack, are currently. What separates Victor from everyone else is his height, which causes problems for the typically smaller cornerbacks because there is rarely a pass Victor can’t get his hands on.Victor said the trust Barrett has in him to come down with the catches stems from chemistry the two have built up over the spring, summer and into the fall.“You’ve got to trust in your quarterback to give you a chance on that 50/50 ball and using my height to my ability to go make a play,” Victor said. “It comes easy because you know we work on it throughout the week and come game time, we’ve got to make it happen.”That trust works both ways between quarterback and wide receiver. Just as Victor said he counts on Barrett to give him a chance, Barrett said Victor’s size gives him much more room for error on passes, making him a more comfortable target.“I think with Ben, I guess not necessarily be as accurate with his wingspan being so wide. He helps you out a lot,” Barrett said.Throw in the size and added confidence Victor has picked up from his recent successes and involvement in the offense, and Barrett said he has a guy he can continue to count on throughout the season. Having limited usefulness and thus a limited role in the offense last season diminished the confidence Victor possessed in his game, Barrett said. The three-time team captain said he now sees a receiver who believes in his own ability to make plays for the team.“Last year, he would be timid at times, and with that wouldn’t be open. And I see now he’s being more confident,” Barrett said. “Even when a guy is hanging onto him, he’s able to go up there and grab the football … So I think there’s something that has been really good for him just being more confident in what he’s doing being that this is his second year.”Though Victor no longer lacks confidence, the potential dynamic playmaker said he has more left to give the Buckeyes. As Meyer said, Victor believes he still has yet to scratch the surface.“I have a lot to work on. I’m not where I need to be right now,” Victor said. “I feel like I can become [that well-rounded receiver], so I can make this offense and help my teammates get better on it.” read more

Swansea sign McKay

first_imgNew Swansea City signing Barrie McKay is looking to rebuild his career after joining the club from Nottingham Forest.The former Rangers winger is hoping to recreate his goal scoring form at the Ibrox Stadium with his new club Swansea as they prepare for life in the Sky Bet Championship.McKay has signed a three-year deal with the Swans after joining the club from Nottingham Forest for an undisclosed fee.The winger found the back of the net 17 times for Rangers but struggled to replicate the same form at Forest scoring just five times in 28 appearances.“Being at Rangers was a good feeling for me the football we played at the club was very good as we got the club back into the Scottish Premiership,” he said according to BBC.Report: Sanches is on a collision course with Bayern chief George Patchias – August 21, 2019 Renato Sanches is apparently on a collision course with Bayern Munich chief after recent comments.According to beIN sports network, Renato Sanches has publicly criticised…McKay featured more than 100 times for the Glasgow based club and the highlight of his Rangers’ career came when he scored against great rivals Celtic in the Scottish cup semi-final.“I was a young lad when I got into the club’s first team. I was just 17 but I featured in a number of games for the club,” he said.“The goal I scored against Celtic was definitely one of my best and I hope to score a few more like that.”“I will try to play as many games as I can and provide as many goals as I can as well for this club.”McKay who has been capped once by Scotland could make his Swansea debut when the club face Sheffield United in the Sky bet Championship opener.last_img read more

Government announces DC pensions investment drive for business growth

first_imgAutumn Budget 2018: The government will support defined contribution (DC) pension funds to invest in growing UK organisations and start-ups through the British Business Bank, according to the Autumn Budget 2018 statement.The British Business Bank is the government’s UK-wide economic development bank aimed at making finance markets work more effectively for smaller employers. According to the latest Budget document, several of the largest DC pension providers in the UK have committed to work with the bank to explore options for pooled investment in patient, or long-term, capital.The providers include Aviva, HSBC, Legal and General, Nest, The People’s Pension and Tesco Pension Fund.“Defined contribution pension schemes have a vital role to play in long-term financing for UK growth and innovation,” said the Budget document.However, Kay Ingram, director of public policy at financial adviser LEBC, warned that this type of investment was unlikely to offer a suitable level of risk for the average pension saver.She said: “While encouraging start-up capital investment is a worthy aim of the government, it is unlikely to be a suitable investment risk, except for the wealthiest savers. The higher returns possible from this type of investment come with higher risk of losses and are usually only considered suitable for those with surplus assets and capacity to wait for the investment to deliver, without needing access to their funds.”Ingram added: “A more suitable proposal would be to offer these higher-risk investment opportunities to wealthier savers, who have funds in excess of the lifetime allowance for pension savings, [which is] £1,055,000 from next April.“They are more likely to have the capacity to bear the risk of loss. If they were offered forgiveness of the 55% tax charge on funds in excess of the lifetime allowance in return for investing in patient capital, we believe many of them would take this up.”The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is due to publish a discussion paper by the end of 2018 that will explore how effectively the UK’s existing fund regime enables investment in patient capital. This will accompany ongoing work by the treasury in exploring the feasibility of a new long-term asset fund.The FCA will also consult at the end of 2018 on updating the permitted links framework to allow unit-linked pension funds to invest in “an appropriate range” of patient capital assets.Lorna Blyth, head of investment solutions at Royal London, said: “Pensions investments are long term-savings but pension savers currently can’t access longer-term investments such as patient capital.“Any further help to allow pension savers to access patient capital and further diversify their pensions investments must be explored in the interests of maximising risk-adjusted returns for consumers. We welcome moves to consider the ability to hold these assets within a unit-linked pension fund.”The Budget also announced that the Department for Work and Pensions will consult in 2019 on the function of the pensions charge cap to ensure that it does not “unduly restrict” the use of performance fees within default pension schemes while maintaining member protections.last_img read more

Army officers love for bikes

first_imgArmy life is known for its adventure, but there are a few officers, serving and retired, who are experiencing this by going beyond the framework of their duties. They do so through the wanderlust and passion for biking as they go on uncharted routes of picturesque places and feel the nature closely. The bike provides them freedom and mobility and an unmatched sense of thrill. For these soldiers, there cannot be any better mode of transport than the motorcycle, which gives them the experience of travelling on all sorts of roads and even taking to places that are difficult to reach. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfSharing his adventures with motorcycles, Lt Gen (retired) Satish Dua said, “I had a love for the bike when I was very young. By the time I got commissioned, I already had two bikes, a Yezdi and a Bullet.” After retirement this hero of 2016 surgical strike took up biking as a hobby and now he travels with his two sons enjoying every moment of his ride. “I now own a Ducati and a Bullet and I take good care of them,” said the former Army officer. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsive”I never gave up my love for bikes. when I was Major General in North East, instead of going in the staff car I used to go in a Bullet to the office. Even when I was the corps commander in Srinagar I used to ride a bike to my office.” “When I got posted in the Army Headquarters, I came to office only a couple of times on bike as in Delhi it is not conducive to ride a motorcycle,” the officer added. His love for the bike was such that the day he retired, instead of going in a car, he chose to ride his bike to his home and his gesture was appreciated by many. “When I took over as Corps Commander in Srinagar in 2015, I went from Pathankot to Manali to Rohtang Pass on motorbike with my sons. Monsoon had set in and many people advised me not to take this ride. But I went on till Ladakh, where we went to the eastern-most part up to the Pangong Tso lake. I drove 50 km along the lake. It was simply mesmerising – you riding along the beautiful lake and enjoying your drive along with the nature.” This was not the end for the Army soldier as again in the summer of 2016, he went to Gurez across Razdan Pass on motorbike and that too in uniform. “Similarly when I was the General Officer Commanding (GOC) in the northeast, I had gone to Aizwal from Silchar on motorcycle and again in uniform,” Lt Gen Dua said. “I just like it… Open air, the nature and the best part is you can stop anywhere without getting down and take out your phone and click a picture.” Talking about his Himachal trip, the bike lover soldier said he took a ride from Chandigarh along Sutlej and Beas rivers and then to Manali to Rohtang tunnel and came back to Kullu. This was not the first time that he was riding through these routes, as he had done so in 1984. Besides love for bike riding, Lt Gen Dua also has a passion for horseriding and loves riding his favourite horse called ‘Govindaa’. Another senior army officer Lt Gen DR Soni is also a diehard bike lover, who does not leave a chance to be on his bike. He said of all the bike brands, his all time favourite will be the ‘Bullet’ and he proudly calls himself a “Bullet Man”. “I love bikes very much. When I was in the Armoured Corps, I used to go on the bikes. In one unit with 20-25 officers there were at least five to seven Royal Enfields and three or four Jawas, one or two Yezdis and an equal number of scooters,” Lt Gen Soni said. He also recalled how during one of his younger days he decided to take a bike ride from Gwalior to Delhi. “I started off for the road trip on my bike without listening to anyone. For me life was full of fun with adventure and there was never a thought that I will die,” the officer said. “I enjoyed all my rides,” he added. His passion for bike was such that he would ride 100 kms only to watch a movie at a different place and he mostly loved riding bike during rains. This biker has an advice for all passionate bike riders “never drink and drive and always wear a helmet”. Colonel Deepankar Zinta, who is also a serving officer at the Headquarters Army Training Command, Shimla said he had the love for riding bike at a very young age. The officer said that when he was commissioned into the Indian Army in 1997, a friend of his got injured during a routine exercise. His Bullet motorcycle was at the service centre. “He asked me to collect the bike from the service centre. I used to call Bullet a ‘Milkman Bike’. I drove his ‘Milkman bike’ from Pune to Ahmednagar and fell in love with the machine and bought a Bullet for myself. “I travelled a lot with my bike. Bike has always been my passion and they will remain forever,” the officer added.last_img read more

first_img Chipmaker Nvidia on Sunday unveiled a new processor aimed at powering high-end graphics on car dashboards as well as sophisticated auto-pilot systems.At an event in Las Vegas ahead of the Consumer Electronics Show, Nvidia Chief Executive Jen-Hsun Huang said the Tegra X1 chip would provide enough computing horsepower for automobiles with displays built into mirrors, dashboard, navigation systems and passenger seating.”The future car is going to have an enormous amount of computational ability,” Huang said. “We imagine the number of displays in your car will grow very rapidly.”The Tegra X1 has twice the performance of its predecessor, the Tegra K1, and will come out in early 2015, Nvidia said.An upcoming platform combining two of the X1 chips can process data collected from up to 12 high-definition cameras monitoring traffic, blind spots and other safety conditions in driver assistance systems, Huang said.Combined with next-generation software, the chips can help detect and read road signs, recognize pedestrians and detect braking vehicles, he said.Santa Clara, California-based Nvidia in recent years has been expanding beyond its core business of designing high-end graphics chips for personal computers.After struggling to compete against larger chipmakers like Qualcomm in smartphones and tablets, Nvidia is now increasing its focus on using its Tegra mobile chips in cars and is already supplying companies including Audi, BMW and Tesla.In the third quarter, revenue from Tegra chips for automobiles and mobile devices jumped 51 percent to $168 million but it remained small compared to Nvidia’s total revenue of $1.225 billion.(Reporting by Noel Randewich) 2 min read Register Now » This story originally appeared on Reuters Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.

Detailed findings of this study are reported and discussed in “Neuroimaging findings in pediatric sports-related concussion” by Michael J. Ellis, M.D., and colleagues, published online, ahead of print, in the Journal of Neurosurgery: Pediatrics.Expert opinion among physicians specializing in sports-related concussion (SRC) holds that computed tomography (CT) scans and magnetic resonance images (MRIs) are not that useful in diagnosing SRCs. Until now, however, no study had been performed to verify this opinion.The authors examined medical records and neuroimaging findings in 151 children and adolescents who had sustained SRCs during competitive sports activities such as hockey, soccer and baseball. The SRCs were all diagnosed and followed up by a single neurosurgeon specializing in concussion spectrum disorders at a multidisciplinary concussion program in the Pan Am Clinic in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, between Sept. 1, 2013, and July 31, 2014. All cases were referrals from other physicians or athletic advisors.Thirty-six patients (24 percent of 151 patients with diagnosed SRC) underwent neuroimaging. CT scans were obtained prior to referral in 23 patients and after consultation in one patient. Because CT scans were primarily obtained before referral and at a variety of facilities, the authors could not address the clinical indications for obtaining these CT scans. MRIs were obtained after referral to the concussion program in 15 patients and before referral in one patient. MRIs were ordered when patients displayed focal neurological deficits or symptoms lasting more than 1 or 2 months, and when there were abnormal findings on CT scans. In four patients both CT scans and MRIs were obtained. Abnormal CT and/or MRI findings were only found in eight (22 percent) of the 36 patients who underwent neuroimaging.Abnormal findings were found on CT scans in five patients (skull fracture in two patients and suspected intracranial hemorrhage, arachnoid cyst, and suspected hemorrhage into an arachnoid cyst in one patient each) and on MRIs in four patients (intraparenchymal hemorrhage and sylvian fissure arachnoid hemorrhage; nonhemorrhagic contusion; demyelinating disease; and posterior fossa arachnoid cyst, cerebellar volume loss and nonspecific changes in white matter).The authors discuss the common use of CT scans and the risks that excessive exposure to radiation may pose for children and adolescents. The fact that CT scans yield no signs of traumatic injury to structures of the brain in most cases of SRC leads the authors to suggest that use of CT should be limited to the emergency room setting in evaluating acutely injured patients in whom clinical signs or symptoms suggest the possibility of skull fracture or intracranial hemorrhage.MRI findings of traumatic structural damage in conjunction with clinical signs and symptoms in two children led the neurosurgeon to advise against further participation in contact sports. Descriptions of these two cases are included, providing the reader with the array of clinical and neuroimaging factors that led to the physician’s advice.Although neuroimaging does not reveal pertinent findings in most cases of SRC, the authors stress “the need to consider [magnetic resonance imaging] in pediatric patients with focal neurological deficits, worrisome symptoms, or abnormal of inconclusive CT findings,” adding that magnetic resonance imaging “should also be considered in pediatric patients with persistent symptoms for which the definition is unclear.”When asked to describe the importance of the study, Ellis responded, “This study provides preliminary evidence that neuroimaging findings are normal in a significant proportion of pediatric sports-related concussion patients, but not every patient, and that neuroimaging can be helpful in informing clinical and return-to-play decision making in selected patients presenting with neurological symptoms following sports-related head injury.“Methodologically, this study does not tell us which patients are more likely to demonstrate traumatic abnormalities on clinical neuroimaging, including magnetic resonance imaging. This question will be addressed by a prospective clinical study that is currently underway at our institution.”For more information: www.thejns.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more Technology | Neuro Imaging | August 07, 2019 Synaptive Medical Launches Modus Plan With Automated Tractography Segmentation Synaptive Medical announced the U.S. launch and availability of Modus Plan featuring BrightMatter AutoSeg.

January 29, 2018 — Primary care providers and hospital doctors around the world can now access the imaging referral guidelines from the U.K.’s Royal College of Radiologists, newly integrated into the OrderWise clinical decision support (CDS) solution created by Canadian CDS company MedCurrent.The OrderWise interface is a CDS software tool that guides referring clinicians through differential diagnoses and helps them make the right imaging request for their patient.OrderWise now runs with the eighth edition of iRefer: Making the best use of clinical radiology, the most up-to-date referral guidance from The Royal College of Radiologists, which launched in 2017.iRefer8 was developed by more than 300 practicing radiologists and features over 280 detailed, condition-specific guidelines designed for easy use by doctors, GPs, radiologists, physiotherapists and other referring clinicians.The integrated OrderWise – iRefer8 CDS package enables referring clinicians and radiology teams to manage diagnostic imaging referrals more effectively; improving hospital workflow and ensuring patients get the right imaging test the first time, with minimized exposure to ionizing radiation.Preliminary outcomes from Royal North Shore Hospital in Sydney, Australia, are promising, according to MedCurrent, generating data to facilitate clinician feedback and iteratively improve OrderWise. The intended benefits aim to drive more appropriate referrals for patients and streamline clinical and operational workflows. A second site, The Wollongong Hospital, was planned to go-live on OrderWise with iRefer8 before the end of 2017.Nicola Strickland, M.D., president of The Royal College of Radiologists, said, “We are delighted to introduce our iRefer8 guidelines to the global market, incorporated within MedCurrent’s fantastic OrderWise package. Radiologists and our referring colleagues must ensure patients get quick and accurate scan results, while being protected from unnecessary radiation. Our expert guidelines, delivered in this innovative CDS format, give clinicians around the world the best tools to make sure we deliver the right imaging tests, protect patients and help hospitals and referrers become more efficient.”OrderWise with the iRefer8 package was displayed at the 2017 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting, Nov. 26-Dec. 1 in Chicago.For more information: www.medcurrent.com Feature | Artificial Intelligence | July 19, 2019 | Michal Chorev AI Models Predict Breast Cancer With Radiologist-level Accuracy Breast cancer is the global leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women, and the most commonly diagnosed cancer… read more Video Player is loading.Integrating Digital Pathology With RadiologyPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 14:08Loaded: 1.15%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -14:08 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

House votes to block Obamas climate plan amid veto threat

first_img WASHINGTON (AP) — Defying a White House veto threat, the Republican-controlled House approved a plan Wednesday to block a key element of President Barack Obama’s strategy for fighting climate change.Lawmakers voted 247-180 to support a bill allowing states to opt out of the Obama administration’s plan to limit carbon pollution from coal-fired power plants if the state’s governor determines it would cause significant rate hikes for electricity or harm reliability of service. ___Reach Matthew Daly: http://twitter.com/MatthewDalyWDCCopyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. 5 treatments for adult scoliosis Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober Whitfield said his bill would protect jobs, noting that in Kentucky, 92 percent of electricity is generated by coal, contributing more than $3.5 billion to the state’s economy and employing 17,900 miners across the state. The coal industry is responsible for more than 700,000 jobs nationwide, Whitfield said, calling the bill part of “an all-out assault” by the Obama administration on energy abundance in the United States.Whitfield, chairman of House subcommittee on energy and power, accused Obama of deploying the Environmental Protection Agency “to do whatever it takes to shut down fossil fuel-fired power plants across the country.”The White House said in a statement that the GOP bill undermines public health protections of Obama’s Clean Power Plan and could slow or stop U.S. progress in cutting dangerous carbon dioxide pollution from power plants.Debate over the bill comes as the Obama administration released a report this week asserting that failure to act on climate change could cause an estimated 57,000 deaths a year in the United States from poor air quality by 2100 and cost billions of dollars a year in damage from rising sea levels, increased wildfires and drought. Pope Francis ignited a global debate on climate change last week as he issued a stern warning about global warming’s consequences, especially for the poor and underdeveloped nations.Power plants account for roughly one-third of all U.S. emissions of carbon dioxide and other heat-trapping greenhouse gases that contribute to global warming. While the United States limits emissions of arsenic, mercury and lead pollution from power plants, there are no national limits on carbon pollution from power plants.The GOP bill would give governors “unprecedented and broad discretion to avoid compliance” with the Clean Air Act, thereby delaying the delivery of important public health benefits of the Clean Power Plan, the White House said in its veto threat. The bill’s effects would be felt hardest by those most at risk from the impacts of air pollution and climate change, such as the elderly, the infirm, children, native and tribal groups and low-income populations, the White House said.Rep. Frank Pallone, D-N.J., called the GOP bill “dangerous, unnecessary and premature,” noting that the climate rule is not yet final.“EPA’s proposed Clean Power Plan is both modest and flexible, and will help us tackle the urgent need to reduce our carbon emissions,” Pallone said. “Just saying no — as this bill would have us do — and condemning future generations (to the effects of unchecked climate change) is simply not an option.” Comments   Share   Top Stories New Valley school lets students pick career-path academiescenter_img The bill also would delay the climate rule until all court challenges are completed. Eight Democrats joined 239 Republicans to support the bill. Four Republicans voted against the measure.The bill’s sponsor, Rep. Ed Whitfield, R-Ky., said it would not reject Obama’s plan outright, but would simply give states more time to comply, while protecting families and businesses from potentially catastrophic electricity rate hikes.Last June, Obama rolled out a plan to reduce earth-warming pollution from power plants by 30 percent by 2030, setting in motion one of the most significant U.S. actions ever to address global warming. Once completed this summer, the rule will set the first national limits on carbon dioxide from existing power plants, the largest source of greenhouse gases in the U.S.The administration says the rule is expected to raise electricity prices by about 4.9 percent by 2020 and spur a wave of retirements of coal-fired power plants.A report by a consulting firm on behalf of a variety of industry groups predicts more severe impacts. The report by Boston-based NERA Economic Consulting says the plan would raise electricity prices by an average of 12 percent from 2017 to 2031 and cause nearly four dozen additional coal-fired power plants to retire beyond those expected to retire under current rules.

Turkish side ups ante in gas word war

first_imgTurkey and the Turkish Cypriot side upped the rhetoric on Monday with regard to Cyprus’ energy plans with warning messages to the government coming from both the north and from Ankara, one of which was also directed at Athens.Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan was quoted as saying on Monday by Turkish Cypriot news outlet Bayrak that the Cyprus government’s energy plans were doomed to fail,According to the report, Erdogan said Turkey would continue to “respond firmly to impositions” in the Eastern Mediterranean both “in the field” and diplomatically.Referring to the RoC’s energy plans, he added: “We are saddened by their unilateral hydrocarbon explorations in the Eastern Mediterranean that are doomed to fail.”“Everyone will see and understand in the end that these attempts that continue to disregard our country and our brotherhood will end in failure,” he added.The message from the north came from Turkish Cypriot ‘foreign minister’ Kudret Ozersay who, in the second part of an interview with Phileleftheros published on Monday, said Turkey would react to the drilling later this year by US energy giants ExxonMobil, even if there are ongoing Cyprus talks.Ozersay said there were areas of Cyprus’ exclusive economic zone claimed by Ankara, both on its own behalf and on behalf of Turkish Cypriots. Turkey would also proceed with its own drilling in areas it lays claim to that have been licensed out by the Cyprus government.The Turkish vessel Fatih is due to drill in the Eastern Mediterranean on October 29 but an exact location has not been revealed.Exxon is to drill later this year in block 10, which until now had not been claimed by Ankara. 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.However, Ozersay argued that a section of block 10 is located in an area where Turkish Cypriots also have rights, he said, and their plans would not be affected by any ongoing talks. The leaders are due to meet on Friday but negotiations have not officially resumed.“I have heard hundreds of times the Greek Cypriots declare that their energy plans will continue. So will ours,” said Ozersay.Meanwhile Turkey’s advisor for economic affairs, Yigit Bulut warned that a “heated dispute” between Greece and Turkey in the Mediterranean would lead to a military disaster for Greece, CNA reported. Bulut said Turkey’s military force in the Mediterranean was three times greater than that of Greece.In an article in the Turkish newspaper Star, Bulult said Greece, Nicosia and Israel are pursuing a “dirty game” in the Mediterranean, thinking that they have the “big brothers” behind them.Last Thursday the Turkish navy said it stopped a Greek frigate from ‘harassing’ the Turkish seismic vessel Barbaros Hayreddin Pasa, which was skirting blocks in Cyprus’ EEZ south west of the islandIt also said Turkey would continue to exercise its sovereign rights and jurisdiction over its continental shelf.“We recommend that Greece abstain from acts that would cause an escalation in the region,” the ministry said in a statement.A Greek defence source denied there was an incident but said the Greeks were monitoring the activity of the Barbaros. Turkey had issued a Navtex, an advisory to ships including coordinates, that it would be conducting seismic surveys in the Mediterranean from October 18 to February 1.“The heart wants Greece and Turkey to be ‘best friends, the best neighbours’ in the region but they are not. This is not because of us but because of them,” Bulut added.“I hope that Greece does not get into this dirty game… any physical harassment of Turkish ships and a hot episode with Turkey will end with a military disaster for Greece… I hope logic will prevail.”The government was largely silent on the issue on Monday but the more hardline parties were critical of both Ozersay and the government.Government spokesman Prodromos Prodromou told Politis radio that Cyprus would continue to operate and move forward on the basis of international law “in cooperation with very large companies and other states like the US”.Diko reacted by saying: “It is clear that Kudret Ozersay has been named by Turkey as the main mouthpiece of its unacceptable positions and claims while [Turkish Cypriot leader] Mustafa Akinci has clearly been downgraded by Ankara. Contacts with a portion of the Greek Cypriot political leadership with Mr Ozersay also strengthen the image of the pseudo-minister as the main interlocutor on the Turkish side.” Solidarity and the Green issued similar statements saying Cyprus needed to do more internationally to have pressure put on Turkey.Defence Minister Savvas Angelides was in Paris on Monday where he briefed his French counterpart, Florence Parly, over the Turkish provocations and the presence of the Barbaros southwest of Paphos.Angelides said he would enquire about French intentions in the region, due to the presence of French energy giants active in Cyprus’ EEZ, such as Total.“They do care, they do have their planning and we will contribute to any actions, which at the end of the day aim at concluding the energy programme successfully,” the minister said. You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndo Israeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)UndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoConcern over falling tourism numbersUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
