Premier Wall says 60s Scoop apology ready no decision on compensation

first_imgREGINA – Premier Brad Wall says the organization representing Saskatchewan First Nations has requested financial compensation be tied to an apology to victims of the ’60s Scoop.Wall won’t say how much the Federation of Sovereign Indigenous Nations is asking for in compensation.“We wanted to make a decision around the apology,” he said Wednesday.“It was offered informally, and now we’ve been working for a very long time to accommodate a more formal apology at the location and the time of the choosing of the Metis Nation and the FSIN.“I respect the fact that they’ve now added an ask for money, a financial commitment from the government, but we haven’t made the decision.”Wall announced two years ago that an apology would be coming for the policy that removed Indigenous children from their homes and placed them with non-Indigenous families — a practice that stripped the children of their language, culture and traditions.He said at the time that the province did not intend to offer cash to the victims.The FSIN could not immediately be reached for comment Wednesday.Saskatchewan radio station MBC reported last month that federation Chief Bobby Cameron said he would be seeking the same settlement — or at least half of — a federal promise of up to $800 million for victims.Wall said that’s not something the government’s going to be doing.“You a can have an apology without money,” Wall said. “We still would like to go ahead with it.”Wall has said he hopes the apology can take place before he retires in January.Manitoba became the first province to apologize to Indigenous adoptees in 2015.last_img read more

Chris Pratt And Chris Evans Visit Seattle Childrens Hospital

first_imgChris Pratt and Chris Evans have visited Seattle Children’s Hospital as part of a bet made during January’s NFL playoffs.Chris Pratt and Chris Evans visit Seattle Children’s HospitalCredit/Copyright: Seattle Children’s HospitalFrom the Seattle Children’s Blog: “Evans, a New England Patriots fan, and Pratt, a Seattle Seahawks fan, both wagered on who they thought would win the Super Bowl. Depending on the outcome, they promised to either visit the children of Christopher’s Haven in Boston (Evans’ charity of choice), or patients and families at Seattle Children’s Hospital. After the Seahawks were defeated in the Super Bowl, Pratt stuck to his word and visited Christopher’s Haven with Evans. Pratt even wore a Tom Brady jersey, much to his chagrin.But in true superhero fashion, there were no losers in this bet. Evans announced on Twitter he would still visit Seattle Children’s.“Since the initial bet began in January, Pratt and Evans have helped raise more than $27,000 for Seattle Children’s and Christopher’s Haven.“‘We are grateful that real-life superheroes Chris Pratt and Chris Evans turned their sports rivalry into an opportunity to support kids in their communities,’ said Lisa Brandenburg, president of Seattle Children’s. ‘We are delighted that patients and families at both Seattle Children’s and Christopher’s Haven will benefit from these generous donations.’”Donors can continue to support Seattle Children’s and Christopher’s Haven through their respective fundraising websites or by texting TEAMPRATT (for Seattle Children’s) to 501501.

UN calls on Myanmar to facilitate aid delivery to cyclone victims

7 May 2008Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the top United Nations humanitarian official today urged Myanmar authorities to facilitate the delivery of aid in the wake of the deadly cyclone that wreaked death and destruction in the country several days ago. The Government in Myanmar has confirmed that over 22,000 people have died, and more than 41,000 people are missing, following Cyclone Nargis which struck the South-East Asian nation from 2 to 3 May. Initial estimates suggest that up to 1 million people are currently homeless, and many more require assistance. “The Secretary-General believes that this is a critical moment for the people of Myanmar, and emphasizes the importance of providing as much assistance as possible in the vital first few days following the cyclone’s impact,” according to a statement issued today by Mr. Ban’s spokesperson. He welcomed today’s news that some UN aid officials will be allowed into Myanmar tomorrow, which will assist assessment and prioritization efforts. “Given the magnitude of this disaster, the Secretary-General urges the Government of Myanmar to respond to the outpouring of international support and solidarity by facilitating the arrival of aid workers, and the clearance of relief supplies in every way possible,” the statement added. “This can significantly aid the Government in responding to this tragedy.” Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs John Holmes echoed Mr. Ban’s call, stressing that “any delays are going to be potentially critical” in the face of such a disaster.Members of a UN Disaster Assessment and Coordination (UNDAC) team will be flying to Myanmar tomorrow to coordinate relief efforts together with the national authorities. Mr. Holmes, who is also UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, stated that while assistance has started to arrive, the effort is clearly not adequate given the enormity of the situation. “We are faced here with a major catastrophe,” he told journalists at UN Headquarters. The UN has been “intensely” discussing access for aid workers, visas and the easing of custom regulations with the Government since the tragedy struck. “The cooperation is reasonable and I think heading in the right direction,” Mr. Holmes noted. The Under-Secretary-General added that the UN will allocate at least $10 million from the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF) for the aid effort. In addition, over two dozen countries have indicated their willingness to contribute to relief efforts, in the amount of $30 million. The UN is working with the Government to prepare a flash appeal to donors to be launched on Friday.Cyclone Nargis, which made landfall in the Ayeyarwady (Irrawaddy) delta region and then moved across the country’s largest city, Yangon, caused widespread destruction, including destroying homes, tearing down trees and power lines and damaging communications.Myanmar authorities have declared five regions – Yangon, Ayeyarwady, Bago, Mon and Kayin – disaster areas. The combined total population of the disaster areas is around 24 million. Mr. Holmes said the process of aid beginning to arrive has started. Humanitarian agencies and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are distributing food, water purification tables, plastic sheeting and health kits – just some of the most urgent needs. The UN World Food Programme (WFP) today sent four aircraft loaded with critically needed food aid, including 45 metric tons of high energy biscuits, and other relief items.“Time is of the essence and we are already reaching storm victims with food. We are mobilising all possible resources to save lives given the massive disruption in food, water, and shelter caused by this storm,” said WFP Executive Director, Josette Sheeran, speaking from Washington D.C.The WFP-chartered aircraft are expected to arrive at Yangon airport early Thursday morning – the first UN flights to arrive in the city. read more

Syria UN humanitarian agencies reiterate call for access to 12 million stranded

In a news release, the agencies said that they are “concerned about the deterioration of the humanitarian situation in Rural Damascus where several locations are increasingly difficult to access.”In particular, the UN agencies are trying to reach a civilian population stranded in the area of Muadhamiya in the capital city, where an estimated 5,000 families are believed to be holed up by the ongoing hostilities. The families are subject to “immense suffering” and have not received sufficient assistance for many months, the agencies said. Since March 2013, UN humanitarian agencies have submitted three official requests to the Syrian Government to allow access. The UN-led convoys carrying most needed relief items have been rescheduled seven times since then, awaiting official clearance, the Damascus-based agencies said.“This situation does not reflect the repeated pledges by the authorities to allow humanitarian actors to access all areas in Syria where there is need to deliver humanitarian assistance,” the UN humanitarian community said in a news release.Last week, the UN launched a $4.4 billion humanitarian appeal – the largest aid request in the Organization’s history – to assist the growing number of people suffering the effects of the crisis in Syria.The appeal, revised from $1.5 billion in January, covers relief activities for the Syria Humanitarian Assistance Response Plan (SHARP) and the Regional Response Plan (RRP).Of the $4.4 billion, $1.4 billion will go to SHARP, assisting Syrians inside Syria, and $3 billion to RRP, which provides life-saving aid and protection to refugees in the immediate surrounding region. So far, $1.2 billion have been received.In addition to this, the Governments of Lebanon and Jordan are seeking $450 million and $380 million, respectively, to support the efforts to provide education, health and other services to the refugees who are now in their countries. read more

Check the outlook with SMMT

In addition, the first report of 2009 highlights the scrappage incentive schemes currently in place across Europe together with an economic overview. SMMT has consistently called for a similar scheme to be implemented in the UK and a co-ordinated and sustainable European approach to boost consumer confidence and kick-start the market. In the current economic situation, with falling vehicle registrations and the challenges posed by a lack of available credit, forward planning is vital. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) has revised its ‘European Car and Commercial Vehicle Production Outlook’ report to reflect the rapidly changing European vehicle manufacturing sector. The series of reports is available free of charge to SMMT members, from the dedicated member services area of the SMMT website, and at a cost of £4,000 to non-members.

Brigham Young blasts OSU womens soccer 30

OSU women’s soccer team huddles during a game against Texas on Sept. 9, 2016. OSU won, 2-1. Credit: James King | Lantern ReporterIn a matchup against No. 7 Brigham Young University, the No. 19 Ohio State women’s soccer team was unable to put one in the net and found themselves on the wrong end of a 3-0 final score.The Buckeyes had opened up the season at 6-1, their best start since 2007. But after the loss, their record fell to 6-2.The game was scoreless until BYU’s senior forward Michele Vasconcelos scored in the seventh minute of the game to stake BYU ahead to an early 1-0 lead.The game remained that way until the second half, when in the 55th-minute, junior forward Nadia Gomes ran ahead on a breakaway down the left side and was able to put the ball just inside the right goal post to bring the score to 2-0. Six minutes later, senior forward Ashley Hatch received the ball, assisted by Gomes and Vasconcelos, and kicked the final goal of the game past redshirt senior goalkeeper Jillian McVicker. It was Hatch’s ninth goal on the season and it tied her for first in goals among NCAA women’s soccer players.The game got interesting in the 49th-minute when the Buckeyes’ leading goal scorer, senior forward Lindsay Agnew, stepped up to kick a penalty shot. But like every other shot on goal, it was saved by junior goalie Hannah Clark.Despite the loss, OSU coach Lori Walker drew some positive conclusions on her team’s performance against a high quality opponent.“I think that the soccer that we put out today from attacking, our attacking transition, our defending, our defending transition, our set pieces, there’s a lot to be proud of,” Walker said. “We played against an outstanding team that I think has the potential to be at the Final Four in BYU and that only benefits us. Our growth is all about us, positioning ourself for November and postseason play and that game has made us a better team.”McVicker agreed with Walker, stating that this game was one of the best games the team has played this year.“They’re a really good team and they’re probably going to go far this season,” McVicker said. “So we’re not going to hang our heads. In our minds, the result didn’t show how hard we worked, and I thought we played about 85 minutes of excellent soccer.”Statistically, the Buckeyes played a much closer game than the 3-0 score would indicate. The Scarlet and Gray outshot the Cougars 13-9, including a 7-5 advantage in shots on goal. The Buckeyes also displayed more discipline during the game, drawing only four fouls compared to BYU’s seven. Each team shot a pair of corner kicks.Looking ahead to the start of Big Ten play, Walker believes that the most important thing for her team to do is rest up in preparation for the games ahead.“We’re going to work on recovering because right now that’s the most important thing is getting our legs back and head into Big Ten play,” Walker said. “And we want to take every bit of energy that we found today and make sure that we pack that on the plane with us when we head out to Wisconsin.”The next game for the Buckeyes will be on Friday in Madison, Wisconsin when they take on the Wisconsin Badgers. read more

Early menopause raises risk of heart disease and stroke study suggests

first_img Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. Women who go through early menopause are at higher risk of heart disease and stroke, research suggests.A study led by the University of Oxford also found a strong link women’s reproductive health and her risk of cardiovascular problems.Women who began their periods early, or who had pregnancy complications such as stillbirth, or who needed a hysterectomy were also more likely to develop heart issues.The researchers said doctors needed to be more aware of the risk when dealing with women suffering from reproductive problems and increase screening.Dr Sanne Peters, who led the study, said: “Our research suggests policymakers should consider implementing more frequent screening for cardiovascular disease among women with one or more of the risk factors highlighted here, in order to put in place measures that can help delay or prevent the development of heart disease and stroke.”Cardiovascular disease, a general term for conditions affecting the heart or blood vessels, remains the leading cause of death and in Britain, killing around 27,000 women every year.For the study, the team drew on data from the UK Biobank, a large population-based study of more than half a million men and women up to the age of 69, who were recruited between 2006 and 2010.Participants filled in questionnaires on their lifestyle, environment, and medical history, which included their reproductive history. They were monitored up to March 2016 or until they suffered a first heart attack.Women who went through the menopause before the age of 47 had a 33 per cent heightened risk of cardiovascular disease, rising to 42 per cent for their risk of stroke, they found. Those who began having periods before the age of 12 were at 10 per cent greater risk of cardiovascular disease than those who had been 13 or older when they started, the study said.Previous miscarriages were associated with a higher risk of heart disease, with each miscarriage increasing the risk by 6 per cent.And having a stillbirth was associated with a higher risk of cardiovascular disease in general (22 per cent) and of stroke in particular (44 per cent).The study, which is published in the journal Heart, found having a hysterectomy was linked to a heightened risk of cardiovascular disease (12 per cent) and of heart disease (20 per cent).And those who had had their ovaries removed before a hysterectomy were twice as likely to develop cardiovascular disease as those who had not had these procedures.Currently the researchers are unable to explain the link. Previous research has suggested that the early onset of periods is linked to obesity, a known risk factor for heart disease in later life.However the findings showed that the risk of developing cardiovascular disease increased for women even if they were a healthy weight. The researchers also ruled out smoking, diabetes and high blood pressure as possible causes.“There is no straightforward link,” added Dr Peters.  “We need more research to understand the association between an early first menstrual cycle and a greater risk of heart disease and stroke in later life.”last_img read more

Retired judge has three months to review new details from Stardust fire

first_img 9,622 Views Retired judge has three months to review new details from Stardust fire tragedy The government agreed an independent person would review the new evidence Stardust victims’ families say has recently been discovered. 18 Comments http://jrnl.ie/3275763 RETIRED JUDGE PAT McCarten has three months to examine the new evidence Stardust victims’ families say has recently been discovered into the tragedy.A total of 48 people died and 214 were injured in the fire that engulfed the Stardust nightclub in Artane, north Dublin, in the early hours of Valentine’s Day, 14 February 1981.After 36 years, the campaigners are now one step closer to having another investigation held into the tragedy if judge McCartan deems it necessary.There was deadlock in January between Independent Alliance junior minister Finian McGrath and his Fine Gael Cabinet colleagues over a motion put forward calling for an independent inquiry into the 1981 nightclub fire.McGrath, who has long campaigned for the families, asked his Cabinet colleagues to support the motion, but they would not agree.However, the proposal for an independent expert to review the new evidence, with a view to establishing a commission of investigation, was accepted by government.Antoinette Keegan, a survivor of the Stardust who lost her sisters Mary and Martina in the fire, said the new evidence cannot be ignored.It’s understood the new evidence pertains to the thousands of transcripts of the original Keane tribunal investigation, which researcher Geraldine Foy reviewed.The families believe she has discovered new evidence which disputes the original findings that the fire began in a seat.Keegan is adamant the fire started in the roof-space, and not the seat.“The Keane report does not match up to what me and the other 100 people experienced that night when the fire was coming down on top of us,” she said.Read:“Insults towards the Stardust victims” submission delivered to Attorney General>Read: New garda file sent to DPP over Stardust tragedy> Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Tuesday 7 Mar 2017, 8:14 PM Share252 Tweet Email2 center_img Mar 7th 2017, 8:14 PM Antionette and her mother Christine Keegan who lost relative in the fire at Stardust in 1981.

Bidders Speak Out on Newsweek Sale

first_imgA month after final bids were due, the Washington Post Co. announced Monday that 91-year-old Sidney Harman, the founder and chairman emeritus of Harman International, has acquired Newsweek magazine.“Newsweek is a national treasure,” Harman says in the announcement. “I am enormously pleased to be succeeding The Washington Post Company and the Graham family and look forward to this great journalistic, business and technological challenge.”But Harman isn’t the only player who sounded off about the deal. I reached out to fellow bidder Fred Drasner (a former partner of Mort Zuckerman who helped negotiate his deals for the Daily News, Atlantic Monthly and Fast Company) and received a statement from Andrew Nikou, CEO of OpenGate Capital, the investment firm that in October 2008 purchased TV Guide from Macrovision for only $1. Here’s what they had to say about the auction process.Fred Drasner:”The auction process worked—Newsweek went to the highest bidder. I offer congratulations to Mr. Harman. He paid a very full price and I think it is wonderful that he has made such a strong commitment to serious journalism, a species that I fear is becoming extinct in this country. I wish him the best of luck.”On why he thought he had the best proposal:”In two words: Alan Webber and Paul Ingrassia. We shared both an editorial and business vision of what needed to be done to resuscitate the franchise. I believed I had the best shot because I had seen the movie twice. Once with US News and once with the Daily News.”Andrew Nikou, founder and CEO, OpenGate Capital:“OpenGate Capital made a significant bid for Newsweek and we felt we had a great strategy and plan for the magazine. Our transaction team, led by Jack Kliger, envisioned a strong Newsweek in the years to come and we regret that we won’t have the opportunity to take this iconic brand into the future. OpenGate has had great success with the TV Guide Magazine brand and many other properties, and we had great confidence that we would have had similar success and many achievements with Newsweek. We greatly appreciated the interest by Donald Graham and his management team at The Washington Post Company, as well as the team at Allen & Company, and we wish them tremendous success with the sale of their distinguished property.”last_img read more

Borough mayor on new potential development coming to the North Slope

first_imgThe North Slope Borough’s main building in Utqiaġvik. (Photo by Ravenna Koenig/ Alaska’s Energy Desk)The Trump administration’s vision for American “energy dominance” has big implications for Alaska, and this winter, some of them became more concrete. In December, the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR) was opened to drilling. And in January the Interior Department released a new draft plan to open most of Alaska’s coastal waters to oil development.Listen nowOne of the places that stands to be significantly impacted by those decisions is the North Slope.Harry K. Brower Jr., is the mayor of the North Slope Borough. He works out of a big mint-green building smack dab in the center of Utqiaġvik — with his name and title printed on the front.On the second floor of the building, Brower sits at a conference table in his office and talks about some of the changes that may be coming to the region.The North Slope Borough has the ability to tax oil and gas infrastructure within its borders, and that money is what allows them to build roads, keep the schools open and pay for the fire department.But as the prospect of offshore drilling in the Arctic takes shape, the borough is also registering its concerns for how to protect the bowhead whale and other marine life people here depend on for food.“Offshore activity is one that’s most important to us because it’s been providing our sustenance for thousands of years,” Brower said.  “And here’s a new administration wanting to go full bore: let’s go and explore and develop whatever we can.”Already, the borough has been in touch with the Interior Department, requesting that certain federal waters stay off-limits for drilling.When it comes to ANWR, the borough supports opening the area known as the coastal plain — or 1002 area — to oil and gas development. But even so, Brower says that there’s still information his office doesn’t have about how the area will be developed, and how that will impact local residents.“It’s a very large area of land,” Brower said. “But then there’s no infrastructure. So where’s the interest going to be? Is it going to be close to the current infrastructure, is it going to be further away so they can develop all this infrastructure that’s needed to extract the resource? I don’t know.”On ANWR and the new offshore plan, the mayor says that communication with the federal government will be key. His office later confirmed by text that the Interior Department is planning site visits to the North Slope and community briefings for later this year.last_img read more

AntiDefamation League Tracking Disturbing Uptick In HoustonArea Hate Incidents

first_img 00:00 /01:09 X The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) says it’s working with law enforcement to respond to recent hate-related incidents in the greater Houston area.The group is tracking what it calls a “disturbing uptick” in displays of hate speech after four incidents in the past week in Harris, Fort Bend and Montgomery Counties. Swastikas were found painted on fences, racist flyers appeared at a home and at Rice University, and a group of high school students in Cypress gave an apparent Nazi salute during a class photo.The ADL’s Southwest Regional Director Dayan Gross says he hope this isn’t part of a growing trend, but says it’s been a “long time” since his group’s seen this number of hate incidents so close together.“Within the first two months of 2017, we’ve already had 25 incidents,” he says. The ADL says it typically deals with about 30-40 such incidents over an entire year.Gross says it’s hard to attribute the increase to any one factor, but the ADL believes it’s at least partly tied to the recent election.“Since the election of President Donald Trump, extremists in this country have felt emboldened,” Gross says.The group is encouraging people to report these kind of acts, while the school district in Cypress says it will discipline some of the students involved in that incident. The Harris County Sheriff’s Office says it hasn’t seen any trend of local hate incidents, though some have been reported to deputies. “Each incident is investigated to determine if there is evidence of a crime,” the sheriff’s office says.

Artificial Intelligence | July 03, 2019 VIDEO: Artificial Intelligence May Assist in Pediatric Imaging Sudhen Desai, M.D., FSIR, interventional radiologist at Texas Children’s Hospital, editor of IR Quarterly for the Society of Interventional Radiology (SIR) and on the Board of Directors for the Society of Physician Entrepreneurs, explained how artificial intelligence (AI) can assist in pediatric imaging and the pitfalls of training AI systems. He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

He said there is a lack of state regulatory oversight for medical physicists or their assistants, partly because there are no guidelines from the medical societies. AAPM has created a series of policy statements to better define these the roles and requirements for all of these positions.
