Citing concerns for flood victims Ontario Quebec opt out of alertsystem test

first_imgOTTAWA — The country’s two biggest provinces won’t take part in what was supposed to be a nationwide testing of Canada’s Alert Ready system on Wednesday.Public Safety Canada says it received notifications last week from Ontario and Quebec that the provinces are opting out of the testing because neither wants to send unnecessary alert tones to residents dealing with historic flooding.The alerts sound when emergency officials send signals to cellphones, TV consoles and radio stations.System operators are mandated to conduct nationwide testing of the service twice annually, blasting out distinctive electronic tones on LTE-enabled wireless devices that have their speakers turned on, as well as through television and radio.Provinces and territories that are part of the system can opt out of the testing if they think it can be too disruptive during a real emergency.The system has been in wide use for about a year, alerting Canadians about potential dangers, including natural disasters, biological and terrorist threats and civil emergencies.It has also been used to issue localized Amber Alerts when police seek the public’s help in locating missing children, although there have been complaints from wireless users that the alerts have been issued too broadly.A glitch in the public-alert system when it was first tested a year ago affected mobile devices across Quebec. An official with Canada’s telecom regulator said at the time that a coding issue originated with emergency-management officials in that province and Pelmorex Corp., which operates the system.Testing on Wednesday is scheduled to be conducted at 10:55 a.m. local time in New Brunswick and Newfoundland, 10:25 a.m. in Labrador, 12:55 p.m. in Prince Edward Island and at 1:55 p.m. in Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, Nova Scotia, Saskatchewan, the Northwest Territories, Nunavut and Yukon.

Ford puts 2018 adjusted profit outlook below Street view

first_imgDEARBORN, Mich. — Ford is calling for 2018 adjusted earnings of $1.30 per share, slightly below Wall Street’s view, because of challenges including higher commodity and warranty costs and a business decline in China.Analysts predict earnings of $1.33 per share, according to FactSet.Looking ahead, Ford Motor Co. Chief Financial Officer Bob Shanks said in a statement that the automobile maker sees the potential for year-over-year improvement in revenue in 2019.Last week Ford announced it was cutting jobs in Europe as it reshapes its business to focus on more profitable commercial trucks and SUVs while shifting production to electric cars over the longer term.Shares of the Dearborn, Michigan-based company fell 13 cents to $8.71 before the market open on Wednesday.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Improving security prompts UN to revise guidelines for Iraqi asylum claims

The UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) previously advised that all Iraqis from the central and southern governorates be considered refugees.In its latest recommendations, the agency believes that the international protection needs for those originating from Al-Anbar, encompassing much of the country’s western territory, and the south should be assessed on individual merit.However, UNHCR advises favourable consideration for people belonging to specific groups from these areas which have been identified as at risk, including members of religious and ethnic minorities; Iraqis perceived as opposing armed groups or political factions; Iraqis affiliated with the multinational forces or foreign companies; media workers; UN and non-governmental organization (NGO) workers; human rights activists; and homosexuals.The agency also stressed that ongoing violence, conflict and human rights violations in most of the central governorates of Baghdad, Diyala, Kirkuk, Ninewa and Salah Al-Din places asylum-seekers from these areas in continued need for international protection.UNHCR estimates that hundreds of thousands of Iraqis have sought refuge in neighbouring countries, mainly in Syria and Jordan but also in Lebanon, Egypt and others, with over 40,000 asylum applications made in industrialized countries last year alone.The agency stressed that improvement in the situation in Iraq is not yet sufficient enough to promote or encourage massive returns and it recommended that refugees already benefiting from international protection should retain their status.In a related development, an Iraqi ministry has pledged $30 million for projects aimed at improving the lives of children in rural marshland areas. With a 34 per cent illiteracy rate among women living in marshlands, compared to 24 per cent nationally, and school enrolment at least 30 per cent lower than in urban areas, and around 80 per cent of households not connected to the general water network, the marshlands has some of the worst development indicators in Iraq. 5 May 2009A drop off in levels of violence in some parts of Iraq has allowed the United Nations refugee agency to revise its guidelines on eligibility for those seeking asylum. read more

UN mission chairs talks with Lebanese Israeli military officials

7 July 2010The head of the United Nations peacekeeping operation in Lebanon today chaired a tripartite meeting bringing together senior officials from the Lebanese Armed Forces (LAF) and the Israeli Defense Force (IDF). The gathering was chaired by Major-General Alberto Asarta Cuevas, Force Commander of the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL).Participants conferred on all issues relevant to the implementation of Security Council resolution 1701, which ended the 2006 conflict between Israel and Hizbollah, including the situation along the Blue Line and its ongoing visible marking.Also discussed was the question of the village of Ghajar, whose northern section Israel continues to occupy, in contravention of the resolution.In a report issued in February, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon cautioned that the situation in the region remains fragile, while adding that he is “pleased” by the parties’ continued commitment to resolution 1701.“The continued respect of the cessation of hostilities by Israel and Lebanon has provided for the most stable period in the relationship between the two countries for decades.”But he warned that the fragility of the situation is exacerbated by ever more strident rhetoric, “which raises tensions and should be avoided,” as well as being in contravention of the spirit of the resolution.The resolution’s implementation also topped today’s talks between UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon Michael Williams and the country’s Defence Minister, Elias Murr, in the capital, Beirut.The two men discussed recent events in south Lebanon, especially those involving the residents of some of the area’s villages and UNIFIL patrols.They also agreed “that the excellent cooperation between UNIFIL and LAF over the past four years has been the backbone of the stability that has prevailed in south Lebanon,” Mr. Williams said. “This cooperation, we believe, must be maintained and enhanced.”In recent weeks, protests have been directed at blue helmets, and the UN official today reiterated the crucial role played by the world body’s mission in the area, stressing the need for freedom of movement of UNIFIL to support the LAF.“This, in turn, serves the interests of Lebanon and the stability of the wider region,” Mr. Williams told reporters after his meeting with the Lebanese Minister. read more

UN womens rights committee opens session in New York

These nations are all party to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, which for over two decades has outlawed various forms of gender bias in those countries that ratify the pact. Addressing today’s meeting of the Committee on the Elimination of Discrimination against Women, which monitors the treaty’s implementation, senior UN officials called the effort central to the realization of the UN’s key anti-poverty targets.Under-Secretary-General for Economic and Social Affairs Jose Antonio Ocampo told the panel’s 23 experts that their work would buttress the global drive to reach the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), a set of time-bound targets for achieving progress in the struggle against poverty.Echoing this view, Angela King, Special Adviser on Gender Issues and the Advancement of Women, said the Committee’s work is “instrumental” for reaching the MDGs.”In your constructive dialogue with States parties, you identify key areas of discrimination against women, for example in the fields of education, health and poverty eradication, and you provide clear recommendations for action by individual States parties to elimination such discrimination and ensure equality between women and men,” she added.Often described as the international bill of rights for women, the Convention defines discrimination against women and provides an agenda for national action to end such treatment. The treaty also spells out the basis for realizing equality between men and women through ensuring women’s equal access to, and equal opportunities in, political and public life as in education and employment. read more

Musks SolarCity to build enormous NY solar panel factory as Tesla plans

by Jonathan Fahey, The Associated Press Posted Jun 17, 2014 8:02 am MDT Musk’s SolarCity to build enormous NY solar panel factory, as Tesla plans battery gigafactory AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email NEW YORK, N.Y. – The energy world is not keeping up with Elon Musk, so he’s trying to take matters into his own hands.Musk, chairman of the solar installer SolarCity, announced Tuesday that the company would acquire a solar panel maker and build factories “an order of magnitude” bigger than the plants that currently churn out panels.“If we don’t do this we felt there was a risk of not being able to have the solar panels we need to expand the business in the long term,” Musk said Tuesday in a conference call.Musk is also a founder and the CEO of the electric vehicle maker Tesla Motors, which is planning what it calls a “gigafactory” to supply batteries for its cars.In both cases, Musk’s goal is to make sure that the components critical to his vision of the future — electric cars and solar energy — are available and cheap enough to beat fossil fuels.Musk’s future customers could ignore traditional energy companies completely. They would have SolarCity panels on their roof that would generate enough power to also charge up a Tesla in the garage. A Tesla battery could then power the home at night with stored solar power.It’s a far-off vision — solar power is still much more expensive than conventional power, even before the enormous cost of a battery backup. And electric cars are less than 1 per cent of the total auto market. But Musk has made a career of thinking far into the future. He is also the CEO of SpaceX, the rocket company with an ultimate goal of enabling people to live on other planets.SolarCity, based in San Mateo, California, is one of the nation’s largest installers of rooftop solar systems. It was founded and is now run by Musk’s cousins, CEO Lyndon Rive and Chief Technology Officer Peter Rive. The company also offers financing for solar systems, and last year it bought a manufacturer of mounting systems used to hold panels in place.The acquisition of Silevo is a risk for Musk and SolarCity because it gets the company into panel manufacturing at a time when a global glut of panels has decimated the profits of panel makers. Some, including onetime industry leader Suntech Power, were forced into bankruptcy. Others were forced into solar development and installations, the kinds of things SolarCity already excels at.Terms of the deal were not disclosed. SolarCity shares were up almost 14 per cent in midday trading Tuesday.SolarCity says it won’t try to turn out more of the garden-variety panels now clogging the market. Instead, it wants to make panels that are more efficient, and make them at a low cost in huge factories in order to reduce the overall cost of solar electricity. Silevo’s relatively complex panels generate more power per square foot than typical panels.SolarCity said it is negotiating with the state of New York to build what would be among the biggest factories in the world in the next two years. It would manufacture enough panels each year to produce 1 gigawatt of peak power — roughly enough panels to outfit 200,000 homes with a typical-sized rooftop system.That would be “just a start,” Musk said. Future factories would produce 10 gigawatts worth of panels.And these panels wouldn’t even look like typical solar panels, he said. Just as he drew customers to electric vehicles by making sleek, fast sports cars, Musk wants to attract homeowners to solar with pretty panels.“We want to have a cool-looking esthetically pleasing solar system on your roof,” he said.__Jonathan Fahey can be reached at http://twitter.com/JonathanFahey . read more

New standards for responsiblysourced artisanalmined diamonds

first_imgThe Diamond Development Initiative (DDI), an organization dedicated to improving the working conditions and lives of artisanal diamond miners, is launching the Maendeleo Diamond Standards (MDS). Maendeleo, the Swahili word for development and progress, is a fitting designation for standards that will ensure respect for human rights, for the environment and for community well-being, according to Dorothée Gizenga, Executive Director. “Artisanal diamond mining, carried out informally with rudimentary tools, is a risky business in many ways. Historically the people who do the hardest work live in poverty and have been subject to exploitation and violence. “These standards are an important step in protecting the miners, regulating the sector and producing diamonds that the jewellery industry can be proud to pass along to consumers.” Workers at 14 remote mining sites in the diamond-rich Koidu district of Sierra Leone have been trained on the standards and 13 of the sites have now been certified MDS-compliant based on a third-party audit. This means that diamonds produced at these sites have been mined responsibly and ethically, and will begin to respond to the growing demand for ethical products from discerning consumers. Implementing the principles of human rights, health and safety and environmental responsibility is already improving the conditions for the people who work in the mines. “Establishing global standards for the artisanal mining industry helps ensure safe working conditions,” said Anisa Kamadoli Costa, chairman and president of The Tiffany & Co. Foundation. “The Maendeleo Diamond Standards represent DDI’s expansive, long-term approach to improving the lives of miners, their families and communities.” Ian Smillie, Chair of the DDI Board, points out that the Maendeleo Diamond Standards is the only model that exists in the artisanal diamond sector. The system is noteworthy as an effective complement to the Kimberley Process (KP), an international protocol to prevent the flow of conflict diamonds. “MDS takes the work of the KP one step further, says Smillie. “While the KP deals with regulatory issues, the Maendeleo Diamond Standards address the development needs of the artisanal diamond miners and their communities, which is foundational to conflict prevention.” Based on the results of DDI’s work in Sierra Leone, Ainsley Butler, MDS Program Director, says DDI intends to roll out the system to other regions, beginning with the DR Congo. “This process is feasible, scalable and replicable,” she says. “This is effective development.” The Diamond Development Initiative works to transform artisanal mining into a source of sustainable development. www.ddiglobal.orglast_img read more

Ronaldinho tips Pogba for Ballon dOr

first_imgBrazil legend Ronaldinho has tipped his “friend” Paul Pogba to win the Ballon d’Or, as long as he listens to Jose MourinhoOver the past decade the award has been exclusively won by either Cristiano Ronaldo or Lionel Messi with the last winner being Ronaldinho’s compatriot Kaka in 2007.But the former Barcelona star, who won the award himself in 2006, believes that Pogba has the potential to end Ronaldo and Messi’s dominance.“He can win the Ballon d’Or, without a doubt,” said Ronaldinho, according to Goal.“I see Pogba as a friend, I don’t see myself as his idol.“He is young, talented and he has the ability to play anywhere, he can play in a free role, defensive, as a runner or attacking.harry maguire, manchester UnitedMaguire says United need to build on today’s win George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Harry Maguire wants his United teammates to build on the victory over Leicester City.During the summer, Harry Maguire was referred to as the ultimate…“He has the characteristics of a player who can fill any position, he can make history.”Recently Pogba has struggled under Mourinho at Manchester United and has been dropped to the bench in recent matches due to his continued inconsistent displays at Old Trafford.But Ronaldinho, who himself had a spell on the bench at former club Paris Saint-Germain, believes that his friend must respect his coach and is certain that Mourinho can extract the potential within Pogba.“He knows the substitutes’ bench, like me at Paris Saint-Germain with [former coach Luis] Fernandez. It is not the same, when Mourinho tells you that you’re on the bench you have to respect that, the other guy, a little less,” said the 38 year-old.“I think Paul really has a lot to learn from Mourinho, who is one of the best coaches in the world. A coach who has won so many titles should be respected. In my case, it was the opposite.”The former midfielder refused to speculate on Pogba’s future. : “He is already in a big club and he has everything needed to make history, whether it is this club or another he has to be where he feels happiest.”last_img read more

The Atlantic Spins Off Relaunches The Wire

first_imgThe Atlantic Wire, previously a content product closely aligned to The Atlantic, has been spun off as an independent brand called The Wire. The site, which aggregates and reports on the latest news, is taking a chapter out of other standalone brands that have launched out of Atlantic Media, such as Quartz and Defense One.”It’s less about removing The Atlantic from the name and more about establishing The Wire’s independent identity in both form and function,” says M. Scott Havens, president of The Atlantic. “Over the last four years, The Wire has grown and evolved and has now established itself as a go-to news platform for millions of readers. We believe the platform is ready for its next ‘step-change.’ Simplifying the name to The Wire (the name many people already use), redesigning the content and advertising platforms for the mobile age, and investing in dedicated sales resources are all critical to realizing the type of scale and impact we believe the site is capable of achieving.”With about 6 million monthly uniques, per Omniture numbers, traffic is up 100 percent from a year ago, says the company. That scale has earned it the chance to delineate its editorial mission and form its own sales team. Atlantic associate publisher of sales strategy and operations David Minkin will add head of sales and marketing for The Wire to his responsibilities, leading a dedicated sales team. The Wire has also cultivated a unique audience, says editor Gabriel Snyder. Overlap with The Atlantic is in the single digit percentages, he says. “The next step of launching it on its own two feet and putting it out there is an acknowledgement of the success we’ve had in setting an editorial voice and building a unique audience.”Snyder adds that the responsive design will allow the content staff to continue to expand its story-telling toolset. “One of the things we’ve tried to do is not rely on text as our story-telling device. We’re trying to use new tools—charts, gifs, quizzes and so on—and have tried to make that less of a special project territory and more of a toolkit for everyday coverage.”last_img read more

Murkowski accepts climate change What will she do about it

first_imgSen. Lisa Murkowski is pursued by reporters in the U.S. Capitol. (Photo by Al Drago/Getty Images)Sen. Lisa Murkowski is one of the few Republicans in Congress who goes out of her way to talk about climate change and says we need to reduce emissions. On climate, the Republican senator stands to the left of her party, as she does on abortion and health care. But climate advocates say her deeds don’t match her words. Climate change wasn’t always so partisan. There’s this goofy ad from 2008. It shows former Speaker of the U.S. House Newt Gingrich, a Republican, and then-Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Democrat, sitting on a loveseat in front of the Capitol.Pelosi: “We don’t always see eye-to-eye. Do we, Newt?” Gingrich: “No. But we do agree: Our country must take action to address climate change.”It wasn’t just Gingrich. Back in the mid-2000s, Republican senators like Richard Lugar and Lindsey Graham called for climate action. John McCain made it part of his 2008 campaign for the White House.In 2009 it seemed like a bill to limit greenhouse gas emissions had a real chance. That summer, the Democratic-controlled House passed a cap-and-trade bill. (That’s where the government would put a limit on greenhouse gas emissions and let industries buy and sell the rights to send CO2 and other gases into the atmosphere. The idea is, if it cost money to emit, companies will cut back.)  A bipartisan group in the Senate was working on a compromise version. Murkowski must have seemed like a natural to join their efforts. For years, she’d called climate change a problem. She acknowledged Alaskans were already seeing the effects, and she called reducing carbon emissions “the right thing to do.” But she wasn’t on board.Two years prior, Murkowski had sponsored a bill that included limited cap-and-trade. But now she had a different emphasis: “When we talk about what we’re going to be doing to reduce our emissions, we also need to be stressing our energy independence in this nation,” she said in a 2009 interview on C-SPAN. And the key to energy independence, Murkowski said, is increasing domestic oil and gas production, along with renewables and nuclear power.A Reuters reporter tried to pin her down. What if a bill expanded nuclear power, offshore drilling and renewables AND capped carbon emissions?” Would she vote for it?“It depends how the cap-and-trade piece is structured. Because I have noted on several occasions, I am quite concerned about how, through the process or the procedure that would be put in place, there’s opportunity for manipulation out there that I think we need to be very, very careful about,” Murkowski said. She went on to detail other reservations.In short, she wouldn’t be pinned down.Murkowski does passionately support money for energy innovation. But what she has always resisted is a tax on fossil fuels, or any regulation of carbon that she says would damage the American economy.“We’re not just going to be able to shut the whole thing down and say ‘this is what we have to do to save the planet,’” she said back then.In other words, her climate solutions are all carrot, no stick. And really, who likes sticks? Murkowski says raising the cost of energy would hit especially hard in Alaska, where power and fuel prices are already in the stratosphere. In the end, the 2009 cap-and-trade bill fizzled in the Senate, and in the decade since, no carbon regulation bill has gotten anywhere near the finish line. And Murkowski hasn’t pressed for one. In fact, when Obama’s EPA moved to regulate carbon, she led the charge to derail it. “It’s pretty clearly, for a decade now, just been talk,” Joe Romm said of Murkowski’s stance on climate.Romm writes a climate blog. He’s a former deputy secretary of Energy from the Clinton administration. He said Murkowski’s carrots-only approach is not a solution because it’s too slow to prevent catastrophic warming.“And every time she’s had a chance to actually take some serious action to deal with climate change, she has either done nothing or been an outright opponent,” he said.Physicist and climate blogger Joe Romm: Murkowski is “all talk” on climate change. (Photo by Liz Ruskin, Alaska Public Media)Romm said Murkowski seems to be following an old Republican playbook.“The way to sound like you care about the climate but don’t have to do anything it’s to say that the solution is innovation and not regulations,” Romm said. “And the problem is climate change is an existential threat.” If limiting or taxing greenhouse gases would hurt the economy, Romm says letting the planet warm out of control is even more expensive, with wildfires, storms and real estate lost to the sea.  In other words, Romm said, climate change is an issue where extreme moderation won’t do. What we need, he said, is real action, and to him, that means limiting greenhouse gas emissions.Sen. Murkowski declined our requests for an interview focused on climate change. But we did have a chance to ask her whether she might support cap-and-trade again, or any policy that seeks to put a price on carbon.Murkowski said a national policy raising the cost of energy would be bad for people in Alaska villages, like the struggling mom she met this year in Aniak, who already pays a fortune for heating oil. “I can’t go back to her and say, ‘for purposes of a national policy, I’m sorry, we’re going to have to increase what you’re paying,’” Murkowski said.She didn’t exactly say no. But bottom line: Murkowski isn’t pushing to regulate or limit CO2. So if that’s how you define taking action on climate, Murkowski doesn’t support it.This story is adapted from Episode 2 of the podcast Midnight Oil: The Big Thaw.

Whatever Happened To The Kids Whose Lead L

first_img by NPR News Susan Brink 8.29.19 12:28pm In January 2016, Goats & Soda reported on lead levels in the soil of neighborhoods near an abandoned smelter in Kabwe, Zambia — and in the blood of the children. For nearly 100 years, smoke from the smelter, which closed in 1994, had been releasing heavy metals, including lead, in the form of dust. Children have grown up playing in that dust, inhaling it — and being poisoned by it. How are the people of Kabwe faring 2 1/2 years later?To date, little has changed for the 76,000 people living in the most contaminated areas of Kabwe.In 2016, there was reason to hope for improvement. The World Bank lent the Zambian government $65.5 million for a five-year project to clean up lead-contaminated areas and treat the people affected by lead poisoning,But the title of a report from Human Rights Watch, released this month, is decidedly pessimistic: “We Have to be Worried: The Impact of Lead Contamination on Children’s Rights in Kabwe, Zambia.””It’s not getting any better,” agrees Richard Fuller, president of Pure Earth, an organization that identifies environmental toxins in poor communities and helps with cleanup. “I’ve been working on this town for 18 years. And when we looked at the place again recently, nothing has happened. It’s really upsetting.” Fuller is co-author of a book with a chapter focusing on Kabwe, The Brown Agenda: My Mission to Clean Up the World’s Most Life-Threatening Pollution.Past studies of Kabwe offered sobering statistics. To identify children with abnormally high lead levels, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention uses a reference level of 5 micrograms of lead per deciliter of blood. A deciliter is a metric measure equal to about one-tenth of a quart. The lowest blood level in the children measured in Kabwe was 13.6 micrograms per deciliter; the average was 48.3; and the highest couldn’t be measured because more than 25% of the children had levels higher than the 65 micrograms per deciliter the instruments could measure.Affected children can have short attention spans, behavioral problems and a host of health problems.A 2018 report in the journal Environmental Research re-analyzed data from three existing studies and estimated that more than 95% of children in those areas have elevated blood lead levels; about half of those children have levels high enough to require medical intervention.In November 2018 and April 2019, Human Rights Watch visited lead- contaminated areas to see if any progress had been made. They interviewed officials, teachers and community members, both adults and children.They found almost no encouraging signs. “A loan from the World Bank, launched in 2016 — and still no visible results on the ground,” says Joanna Naples-Mitchell, research fellow in the Children’s Rights Division of Human Rights Watch.Testing of blood levels in some children of Kabwe was done until 2016 when test kits ran out, according to the Human Rights Watch report. It also found that medicines for children with extremely high levels of lead have run out as well, so those children go untreated. Cleanup efforts of homes, schools, yards and fields are small and inconsistent, the report noted.The Human Rights Watch report found that the Kabwe cleanup and treatment project was still in the planning stages. In a June 2019 status report, the World Bank rated the Kabwe project “Moderately Unsatisfactory.” The Zambian government has responded by saying that it intends to begin cleanup of contaminated soil as well as testing and treatment of affected people before the end of 2019.There’s no clear-cut plan yet, but past pilot projects to address the problem consisted of cleaning up soil outside homes, schools and public areas, as well as ridding individual homes of dust using special vacuum cleaners, Fuller says.Dirt roads present a special challenge. In previous efforts to address lead contamination in other parts of the world, Pure Earth has found that existing dirt roads should be paved or tarred so that passing traffic doesn’t kick up contaminated dust. “But the government has said they don’t have enough money to do the roads,” says Naples-Mitchell. “If a home is cleaned but the road next to it is not, it’s only a matter of time before everything is recontaminated.”The World Bank loan is also intended to pay for diagnosis and treatment of children with lead poisoning. Naples-Mitchell says she hopes that efforts will be coordinated, or they will fail. For example, when a child is treated for lead poisoning — with nutrition or, in severe cases, with medical therapy — the child must go home to a lead-free environment or else could be recontaminated.Lead cleanup can work. “A success story is in Dong Mei in Vietnam,” says Jack Caravanos, a consultant on Pure Earth’s effort in this village of 3,000. The main industry was the informal recycling of lead acid batteries, Caravanos says. The result was highly contaminated soil — and children with blood lead levels five to 13 times higher than the CDC’s levels of concern, according to a case study by Pure Earth. During the year of the project, blood lead levels in 206 tested children dropped by 75%, according to Pure Earth’s summary of the project.But the lead contamination in Kabwe is even worse than in Dong Mei. “This is really a public health emergency that has never been treated with the urgency it deserves,” says Naples-Mitchell. “I’m hopeful that, given the attention to Kabwe right now from the World Bank project and this report, that we’ll see real change.”Fuller is not so much hopeful as just plain determined. “This is a massive human rights violation and disaster,” he says. “It has to get fixed. We have to keep pushing. We’ll find a way.”Susan Brink is a freelance writer who covers health and medicine.

With laser-guided motion technology on a motorized mobile gantry for predictable and precise trajectories, Wide Bore 3-D for ease in 3-D acquisitions and more than 20 advanced applications available, the Discovery IGS 730 is positioned for a new era of interventional procedures. The significance of this innovation to interventional imaging has been compared to that of the invention of flat panel technology.“Our goal was to pioneer a solution that eliminates the historical trade-offs our customers had to make when selecting from the interventional imaging systems. In general, the trade-off between ceiling- and floor-mounted systems means compromising patient access for room airflow and sterility, while the choice between fixed units and mobile C-arms means compromising image quality for mobility. Now interventionalists and surgeons who perform complex, minimally invasive procedures have an entirely new category of imaging system that eliminates the need to compromise: Discovery. At GE Healthcare, we believe the Discovery IGS 730 has the potential to revolutionize the field of interventional imaging,” said Hooman Hakami, president and CEO of GE Healthcare Interventional Systems.The Discovery IGS 730 is a revolution in imaging. It is neither floor- nor ceiling-mounted, but enables full patient access without the need to suspend the system above the patient. It has the mobility of a C-arm with the power and image quality of a fixed system. This laser-guided, motorized mobile gantry creates an interventional environment without boundaries. It allows complete access to the patient and unlimited parking capability, while creating sterility for a flexible and secure operating room (OR) environment. The unique gantry comes with a new wide bore design, which allows for steep angles, ease in 3-D acquisition, especially for large patients.The Discovery IGS 730 C-arm is mounted on an advanced guided vehicle (AGV), a motorized and fully mobile system. Based on laser guidance, the AGV can move freely from imaging position to parking or back- out positions, using predefined trajectories to provide total patient access. The Discovery IGS 730 features “One-Touch-Back-Out,” enabling fast and easy gantry movement away from the patient. The motion is predictable, precise and easy to use, allowing fine control and positioning at any moment in the procedure. Parking locations and back-out distances are customizable for different room configurations.“My first impression was that this system will allow us to have levels of access to patients in ways we have never had before. This particular unit removes the limitations of both ceiling- and floor-mounted systems without losing any of the advantages,” said Hal Folander, M.D., chairman of the Radiology Department and Section Chief of Interventional Radiology at St. Luke’s Hospital and Health Network in Pennsylvania, who has participated in clinical simulations on phantoms using the Discovery IGS 730. “Having been involved in research and development of this type of product for 25 years, I would say this is, probably, one of the most revolutionary interventional projects that I’ve seen. The innovation will be equivalent to or greater than the invention of flat panel technology for interventional procedures.”In addition to being mobile, Discovery IGS 730 comes equipped with more than 20 advanced applications. One example is the new Wide Bore 3-D application for ease in 3-D acquisitions and the ability to allow off-centered 3-D acquisitions to cover anatomies such as the borders of the liver during liver oncology procedures or the skin line during image-guided needle procedures.“With Discovery IGS 730, doctors will be able to rediscover space and movement while accessing all the advanced imaging capabilities of GE premium interventional systems,” said Chantal Le Chat, general manager of GE Healthcare Interventional Radiology.The system does not yet have regulatory clearance in either Europe of the United States.For more information: www.gehealthcare.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Advanced Visualization | February 25, 2019 Philips and Microsoft Showcase Augmented Reality for Image-Guided Minimally Invasive Therapies Philips will unveil a new mixed reality concept developed together with Microsoft that the company says is designed for… read more News | CT Angiography (CTA) | July 24, 2019 WVU Medicine Installs First Alphenix 4D CT in the U.S. The West Virginia University (WVU) Heart and Vascular Institute is the first hospital in the country to acquire the… read more News | Computed Tomography (CT) | March 04, 2019 Aidoc Announces CE Mark for AI-based Pulmonary Embolism Workflow Tool Artificial intelligence (AI) radiology solution provider Aidoc announced the commercial release of its CE-marked… read more Philips and Microsoft have partnered to develop an augmented reality system to help imporve workflow and procedural navigation in the cath lab.

Not because she cared about who won the race. But because her parents informed her that Laura Chinchilla’s term was coming to a close.The toddler’s parents filmed the video and Radio Monumental interviewed the parents and uploaded a version to YouTube, entitled “Little Girl Mourns Departure of President Laura Chinchilla.” (Chinchilla later told the radio station she saw the clip, and found it moving).In the video, the wee one shrieks “I’m going to miss her!” She sobs through her hands. “It’s so sad!”Uncertain what would cause such an emotional outpour, her father asks, “Why are you so upset? I don’t understand.”“Laura Chinchilla!” cries the girl.“You love her a lot, don’t you?” asks her mother.Soto nods and sniffles.We are aware that many people will be pleased to see the not-so-popular president leave office in May. But that’s an adorable kid, and it’s cute she’s crying over a president’s  impending departure.Children might be able to sympathize better with Chinchilla than others anyway. One of her administration’s key agenda items was launching a national daycare network. Also if you check Chinchilla’s Twitter feed, you’ll see the president really, really loves kids. (She doesn’t even let political divisions get in the way.)Comments on the video have been divided.“My children love [Chinchilla],” wrote Silvia Hidalgo. “A woman to admire.”Said Olman Tellez: “Children don’t know… they’re innocent.” Facebook Commentslast_img read more

ever “Oh Shenandoah” was perfect It included a subplot about campus rape and the ethics of reporting rape accusations which have been everywhere in the news–from the Rolling Stone University of Virginia rape investigation (which the magazine just embarrassingly walked back) to the re-emerging Woody Allen and Bill Cosby rape accusations (And that’s even before you get to the parallels between ACN’s new tech-zillionaire “disrupter” owner Lucas Pruit and The New Republic’s Chris Hughes) But the timing of “Oh Shenandoah” was also terrible because “Oh Shenandoah” was terrible Its arguments about whom to “believe” in the case of rape accusations were terrible Its arguments about reporting said accusations were terrible Its reliance on preachy strawman arguments was terrible Its cranky obsession with the evils of the Internet was terrible And it added upin a final season that began with the promise of the series becoming better and subtler in the endas a terrible episode even by the standards of the series’ earlier most terrible ones Let’s begin with Don’s visit to Mary the rape accuser Mary–and credit to Sorkin for resonance with current events–says that she was raped that she reported it to college authorities and the police and that none of them did anything about it So she’s set up a website through which women can anonymously report rapes This unsettles Don; he’s worried about the potential for a guy’s career to be ruined by a false accusation Mary answers that he seems a lot more concerned about that than the statistically far more likely possibility that a woman will get raped and her attacker will get off scot-free It’s a canned dialogue and more than a little mansplain-y on Don’s part but it is at least an actual discussion going on in the news today Then we get into the issue of “belief” and he-said-she-said and it gets worse So much worse Asked who he believes Don with visible discomfort says that she’s credible and has no reason to lie; the student she’s accusing seems sketchy and has every reason to lie But he says morality tells him that “I’m obligated to believe the sketchy guy” OK what the hell Don’s not saying that he can’t know whom to believe yet He’s not saying that he doesn’t have hard proof He’s not saying “We don’t know enough to say” He’s saying that lacking proof he has to affirmatively believe the story of one of his subjects–a less credible one–over the other Forget journalists–many men’s rights movement advocates don’t even go that far The journalistic-ethics part of his argument is even more confused Don is ostensibly worried about Mary’s website and the danger of anonymous accusations So he wants Mary to turn down the ACN interview–in which she’s not only not making an anonymous accusation but in which the accused will have the chance to defend himself This is literally the opposite of the criticism of the Rolling Stone story–that the magazine’s reporter did not speak to any of the accused gang-rapists or attempt to track them down or even explain what it did or did not do about them ACN has done all that and Don wants to scuttle the story anyway because he doesn’t like the website Because “there’s no way” some woman won’t use it to make a false rape accusation Because think of the theoretical Stanford Medical School applications For this “Oh Shenandoah” makes him a hero And that gets to the larger problem of the episode and The Newsroom in general The Newsroom is a didactic show by which I mean when it presents an argument it hints pretty clearly which side it believes is right It works in heroic not antiheroic mode This is a trait of Aaron Sorkin’s TV shows and it’s not automatically bad The Wire is the greatest drama in TV history and it was plainly didactic about its argument against the war on drugs But when you make an episode as didactic as righteous as sanctimonious as this you own what it preaches Its rape subplot is not saying “Here are a couple sides of a difficult issue What do you make of it” Like most such Newsroom parables it gives you obvious clues–tone cadence music camera angles who gets the better speeches–to lead you to the path of virtuous and true thinking And although Mary is sympathetic too what dominates the story is how committed Don is how terrible he knows the situation is how damn hard it is for him (he spends most of it with his eyes watering) but how he has to make this call anyway even if it breaks his heart even if it gets him fired because right is right dammit And the rape story is only the most attention-getting subplot in an episode loaded with awful sermons Except for Jim and Maggie’s romance on the Snowden Express every storyline here is a screed about how the Internet and wrongheaded populism are threatening truth privacy justice journalism and civil society It’s ironic that the Internet is the one topic that reliably makes Sorkin reach for the CAPS LOCK button like a blog commenter Combine that with a woman character and it’s a perfect storm something foreshadowed in real life during the first season when Sorkin dismissed a female reporter with “Listen here Internet girl” In The Newsroom the Internet is silly gossipy–and thus in its view feminine not unlike reality TV which Will said in season one turns us into “old ladies with hair dryers on our heads” (See also everything this season involving Hallie who first gets fired from ACN for a tasteless tweet about the Boston Marathon bombing then lands a job with a website that gets her to write a personal essay dishing about a fight with her boyfriend Jim) So Mary’s story is an extension of The Newsroom‘s woman problem But it’s also is of a piece with all the other storylines in the episode crying that digital culture its anonymity its renegade Redditors its insistence that passion equals truth and its ability to bypass the filter of expert judgment has bought us all a ticket on the Acela straight to hell Mary–who at least gets in some potent arguments–is arguably the most generously treated antagonist in the episode Elsewhere Jailhouse Will argues about Eastern establishment elitism with his cellmate an imaginary stand-in for his abusive dad who gets in a few good points–except he’s a wife-beater who hates the Jews so there’s that Sloan vivisects the tech guy who’s created a celebrity-stalking app (a practice even Gawker has dropped) a gross smug troll given only a few limp clichés (“They signed up for this”) to defend himself with And Pruit turns out to be exactly the crass bullying philistine everyone was afraid he’d be raving and threatening to fire the entire office for breaking his beautiful surveillance app This is all too much for Charlie–for some reason he’s spent most of the episode as fiercely carrying out Pruit’s philosophy as he earlier fought it–who under the strain of holding it all together actually drops dead That’s right folks: The Internet killed Charlie Skinner And you did and I did all of us with our shallow obsessions and demands for cheaper faster more gossipy news Are you happy now are you The most baldly offensive thing in “Oh Shenandoah” was watching Don mansplain rape to a woman But to focus only on that would be to diminish the sheer monumental top-to-bottom -splaininess of this episode Will McAvoy is so good a mansplainer he can even mansplain to another man
