13 October 2010A member of the Group of Eminent Persons appointed by Secretary-General Ban K-moon to look into development problems facing the world’s poorest countries today stressed that both developed and developing countries must fulfil their commitments to poverty reduction strategies for the efforts to bear fruit. “The international community has to commit to financially supporting developing countries, and we need partnership against corruption in developing countries,” said Alpha Oumar Konaré, the former President of Mali and co-chair the Group of Eminent Persons for the fourth UN conference on the Least Developed Countries (LDCs).Speaking to reporters after the Group’s first meeting, Mr. Konaré said donors should also make efforts to ensure that funds are managed in a transparent manner, bearing in mind that the LDCs had the national responsibility for development efforts in their respective States.“The simple answer is that it is not just more money, and it is very clear in the developing countries themselves that we cannot deal with development unless we look at the question of governance, unless we look at shared responsibility,” said James Wolfensohn, former World Bank President and co-chair of the Group.During the Group’s gathering, the Secretary-General said the stature and experience of the members made it well-placed to advocate for the major UN conference on LDCs in Istanbul, Turkey, next May. He said the upcoming meeting would usher in a new generation of international measures for the LDCs in key areas such as aid, trade, foreign direct investment, remittances, transfer of technology, debt relief and climate change adaptation and mitigation.The event in the Turkish capital will assess the implementation of the Brussels Programme of Action for the LDCs – the outcome document adopted at the 2001 LDC conference – and reach agreement on a new generation of international support measures for the LDCs.The 10-year Brussels Programme of Action outlines measures to be taken by both industrialized nations and the LDCs themselves to reduce poverty and achieve sustainable development.“By raising public awareness and building strong political commitment, especially at a challenging time for global solidarity, you can help reinvigorate the compact in support of the development and transformation of the LDCs over the next decade,” Mr. Ban told the Group today.Its other members are Jacques Delors, former president of the European Commission; Fazle Hassan Abed, the founder and chairperson of the Bangladesh Rehabilitation Assistance Committee (BRAC); Nancy Birdsall, the founding president of the Center for Global Development; and Kemal Dervis, former head of the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and current vice president and director of Global Economy and Development at Brookings Institution.It also comprises Hiromasa Yonekura, chairman of Sumitomo Chemical Company Ltd.; Louis Michel, European Parliament member and formerly the European commissioner for Development and Humanitarian Aid; Louis A. Kasekende, Deputy Governor of the Bank of Uganda and formerly executive director at the World Bank; and Sir Richard Jolly, Honorary Professor of the Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex.They were appointed by the Secretary-General in August to examine obstacles to economic progress and recommend new paradigms for transforming low-income economies.The Group’s ten members were chosen for their “high international stature, expertise and strong commitment to global development,” Mr. Ban’s spokesperson said in a statement at the time. read more

An economic analysis of the proposed Keystone XL pipeline’s possible climate impacts has concluded they could be up to four times higher than previously estimated.In the study published in the journal Nature Climate Change, researchers at the Stockholm Environment Institute write that widely quoted U.S. State Department findings that the oil sands pipeline wouldn’t make a significant difference missed a major source of greenhouse gas emissions.It didn’t appear that they looked at the market implications“It didn’t appear that they looked at the market implications,” said co-author Peter Erickson. “If the Keystone pipeline were to enable a greater rate of extraction of the oil sands, would that not increase global fuel supplies, which might then decrease prices and therefore allow a little bit more global consumption?“That’s the analysis that we did here and we found that it could be the greatest emissions impact of the pipeline.”Erickson and co-author Michael Lazarus used figures from previous research and international agencies that mathematically describe how oil prices affect consumption. They found that a slightly lower price created by every barrel of increased oil sands production enabled by Keystone XL would increase global oil consumption by slightly more than half a barrel.The capacity of the pipeline proposed by Calgary-based TransCanada Corp. would be about 820,000 barrels a day. If every barrel of that came from new production, the annual carbon impact of Keystone XL could be up to 110 million tonnes — four times the maximum State Department estimate of up to 27 million tonnes.The authors acknowledge their study doesn’t answer whether Keystone XL would encourage oil sands expansion or simply provide an outlet for growth that would have happened anyway.Environmentalists maintain the former.The Pembina Institute argues the pipeline would enable oil sands companies to get a better price at U.S. Gulf refineries, sending a market signal to increase production. The clean energy think-tank also points to statements by officials suggesting the project would allow their companies to mine more bitumen.While other options to move oil sands crude exist, the institute says none would have Keystone’s size and none would be as advanced.“It is likely that Keystone XL would, in fact, drive increased oil sands production in Alberta,” says an institute paper.Industry officials say the relationship between pipelines and production isn’t that simple. Higher output and better transportation feed back into each other, said Terry Abel, director of oil sands for the Canadian Association of Petroleum Producers.“Oil sands growth will at some point require additional capacity to transport the product,” he said. “That growth in production generates numerous proposals to do just that.“Ultimately, it’s the demand for the product that encourages production growth.”Still, Lazarus said the debate about the climate impacts of energy projects would benefit from a closer look at their market effects. “Looking at the demand-supply interaction is something energy economists do and modellers do all the time, but usually at a global level. What is not done sufficiently is to look at the implications of individual actions, policies, programs and investments.”The Canadian government argues the study bases its conclusions on false assumptions.The first assumption, an email from Natural Resources Canada stated, is that Canadian oil production would be affected by stopping one pipeline. The second is that crude delivered by Keystone XL would replace sour crude from the Middle East, and that it would be 18 per cent more greenhouse gas intensive than the Middle Eastern crude.“The Government of Canada has been clear that it agrees with U.S. State Department analysis that Keystone XL will be safer and less emitting than alternative options,” the email said.Lazarus said even though the pipeline’s capacity would represent only about one per cent of global oil consumption, that would still be enough to incrementally move markets. The global energy market is so big that even one per cent is a significant chunk, he said.“It’s important to look at the incremental impact of all sorts of actions No particular action is going to be individually that large.” The pair’s research is being welcomed in the academic community.“Its conclusions seem reasonable,” said Mark Jaccard of Simon Fraser University’s School of Resource and Environmental Management. “The paper suggests a flaw in the analysis of the U.S. State Department, because it did not consider this effect when addressing President Obama’s request to know the incremental effect of the pipeline on emissions.”The Stockholm Environment Institute is a non-profit, international research group based in Sweden with seven offices on four continents. Its work is supported by the Swedish and other governments, the private sector and charitable foundations.© Thomson Reuters 2014 read more

More than 300 representatives of some 190 NGOs working with the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) around the world began two days of annual consultations on Tuesday at the UN’s European headquarters in Geneva.Welcoming the representatives, Deputy High Commissioner Wendy Chamberlin said UNHCR “places a very high priority on our partnership with NGOs – we can’t do it without you.”Gil Loescher, professor emeritus of political science at the University of Notre Dame and senior research fellow at the University of Oxford, gave the opening address on the protracted refugee crisis.He said there were 38 situations around the world in which 25,000 or more people were housed in camps or settlements for five years or longer. He said the situations, some of them lasting for decades without a solution, were “one of the most difficult problems in the world today.” read more

TORONTO – The NDP’s demand for a public inquiry into the Liberal government’s decision to cancel power plants in Oakville and Mississauga would cost too much, premier-designate Kathleen Wynne said Thursday.It has already cost Ontario taxpayers at least $230 million to scrap the two gas-fired generating stations, and a government facing an $11.9 billion deficit has to be careful how it spends its money, added Wynne.“To spend millions of dollars on a public inquiry, that’s not something that I would like to do,” she told reporters.Wynne has not ruled out a call from the Progressive Conservatives to reform a legislative committee to investigate the decisions to cancel the gas plants, which the opposition parties say were motivated solely by a desire to save Liberal seats in the suburbs west of Toronto.The committee was shut down last fall just hours before it was to begin hearings when Premier Dalton McGuinty announced he was resigning and prorogued the legislature until the Liberals picked a new leader.The Tories and New Democrats are convinced the government has not released all the documentation on the cancelled energy projects, even though it put out tens of thousands of pages in two separate packages last fall under a Speaker’s order.The opposition parties point to an internal email from a worker in the ministry of energy, a former Liberal political staff member, directing the Ontario Power Authority on which of the gas plant documents should be made public and which should be withheld.“Clearly this was a political staffer who became a bureaucrat, and it raises massive suspicion that there was political involvement and interference in the decision making process about what items were redacted and what weren’t,” said PC critic Rod Jackson.The New Democrats say they doubt a civil servant would be in a position to dictate to the OPA what documents should be made public unless directed by the government.“Who was this ministry of energy staffer who was able to go to the Ontario Power Authority, an arms-length agency, and tell them how they were to respond to the questions from the legislature,” asked NDP energy critic Peter Tabuns.“Who is this person with such power, who directed her, what were her instructions?”The Liberals stress the person who gave direction to the OPA was a civil servant, not a political staffer, and say the government “did not direct the document search.”Wynne’s staff says she is still looking at options for dealing with the gas plant issue, and the premier-designate herself suggested there may indeed be more documents on the cancelled projects that haven’t come out.“I really believe that all the information needs to be public, we need to do everything we can to make that information public,” she said.The Tories warned they were ready to tie up legislative business as soon as it resumes next month by reviving the contempt of Parliament motion against former energy minister Chris Bentley, which died when McGuinty prorogued the legislature.“If they don’t act appropriately and call a legislative committee to deal with the questions surrounding the gas plants, it’s a possibility,” said Jackson.“Contempt is contempt. The issue will certainly rear its head.”Talk of reviving the contempt motion, which led to some bitter, nasty and personal exchanges in the legislature last fall, flew in the face of Wynne’s efforts to reach out to the opposition leaders in hopes of keeping the minority government alive and improving the level of debate.“I hope that by engaging with the leaders of the opposition that we’re going to be able to have a different tone in the legislature,” she said Thursday after meeting with McGuinty and Lt.-Gov. David Onley Thursday to begin the process of formally transferring power to the new Liberal leader. by Keith Leslie, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 31, 2013 1:59 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Wynne says public inquiry into cancelled gas plants too expensive read more

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by David Friend, The Canadian Press Posted Sep 17, 2014 3:00 pm MDT Canadian dollar faces uncertainty before Scottish vote referendum TORONTO – With polls showing that a referendum vote on Scotland’s independence is too close to call and the future of a nation remains in question, global currencies like the Canadian dollar will be under pressure.The uncertainty Thursday may be seen in the value of the British pound as it continues a volatile path towards the outcome of the vote.If a decision is made to separate from the United Kingdom, the Scots could be forced to look for alternatives for their currency and it may call into question Scotland’s relationship with the European Union.In the meantime, investors are playing it safe, said Camilla Sutton, chief FX strategist and managing director at Scotiabank Global Banking and Markets.“Markets don’t like uncertainty, and … there seems to be further shedding of risk altogether,” Sutton said in an interview.“That highlights just how close the vote really is.”The Canadian dollar moved down 0.28 of a cent to 90.88 cents US on Wednesday, primarily affected by unrelated interest rate comments by the U.S. Federal Reserve.According to a phone poll of 1,373 of Scots by Ipsos MORI, undecided voters could determine if Scotland becomes independent. Opposition to independence sits at 51 per cent while support is 49 per cent, and about five per cent of voters remain undecided.The voting results are expected to be made public on Friday, before currency trading begins in North America.While the impact on the loonie would be significantly less than other major currencies like the U.S. dollar, there could be a ripple effect that spreads to Canada.A vote to separate could leave the Bank of England to decide whether it would let Scotland continue to use the British pound, an uncertainty that could strengthen the U.S. dollar against the loonie.It could also put a damper on the recovery of the global economy, said Mark Chandler, head of Canadian FIC Strategy at RBC Dominion Securities.“If you look over the last nine months or so, the U.K. was one area where it looked like a turnabout was coming,” he said.“(A vote to separate would) mean there’s uncertain capital spending investment outlook, and that undermines the growth outlook.”Sutton suggested that if Scotland decided to separate it would “stir debate about other areas that are vulnerable to separation”, such as Spain where Catalans in the country’s northeast are seeking an independent nation.However, if Scotland stays as part of the U.K. it would erase much of the uncertainty that has developed on equity markets and helped drive the value of the U.S. dollar higher.The greenback has been moving higher in recent sessions, influenced by a number of factors that include Europe and signals from the U.S. Federal Reserve that interest rates will be hiked at some point next year.An upwards trend in the greenback left the commodity-based Canadian currency near its lowest levels in almost six months last week, closing at 90.14 on Sept. 12. read more

In a meeting in Kyiv with Ukraine’s Prime Minister, Arseniy Yatsenyuk, Mr. Ban added that a direct dialogue between the two neighbours is critical to reducing the ongoing tensions. The UN chief was in Russia on Thursday and arrived in Ukraine on Friday as part of his efforts to help de-escalate tensions between Moscow and Kyiv. Months of political unrest in Ukraine led to the removal by Parliament of President Viktor Yanukovych in February, followed by increased tensions in the country’s autonomous region of Crimea, where additional Russian military were recently deployed and a secession referendum was held last week. Throughout the crisis, the Secretary-General and senior UN officials have consistently called for a solution that is guided by the principles of the UN Charter and that respects Ukraine’s unity, sovereignty and territorial integrity.During his meeting today, Mr. Ban briefed the Prime Minister on his recent meeting with Russian leaders, including President Vladimir Putin and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov, according to a readout provided by Mr. Ban’s spokesperson.He also commended the Prime Minister for his recent speech in which he called for an inclusive political process in Ukraine. read more

Among the casualties are two Russian journalists killed on 17 June, and an Italian photojournalist who was killed on 24 May along with his Russian interpreter. “The members of the Security Council encourage a thorough investigation of all incidents of violence involving journalists,” Ambassador Vitaly Churkin of Russia, which holds the Council’s presidency for June, said in a statement to the press.“The members of the Security Council expressed concern about reported cases of detention and harassment of journalists covering the crisis in Ukraine,” he added.Council members also voiced support for the freedom of expression as a human right, including for members of the media. Ukraine has witnessed ongoing violence, especially in the eastern part of the country, characterized by growing loss of life and a deteriorating humanitarian situation, according to UN officials, who have continued to call for an immediate cessation of hostilities and a resolution of the crisis. read more

Ohio State junior center Michael Jordan (73) prepares to snap the ball to redshirt sophomore quarterback Dwayne Haskins (7) in the first half of the game against Rutgers on Sept. 8. Ohio State won 52-3. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorMoving a veteran guard to center has been an Ohio State staple over the past three seasons.Pat Elflein did it in 2016, Billy Price followed in 2017 and now, junior Michael Jordan has done the same when he was announced as the team’s starting center before the 2018 season began.Elflein and Price found success in their final years, winning the Rimington Trophy for best center in the country in back-to-back seasons, both being selected in the NFL Draft as centers.Jordan has not found that same level of success.A first-team All-Big Ten member in 2017, Jordan has struggled adapting to the center role at points this season, as has the rest of the offensive line, which head coach Urban Meyer said was a group of the five best linemen he had, regardless of position.In Monday’s press conference, though, Meyer said it might not have been the best five players, but the five healthiest players, who started the season for Ohio State on the offensive line.“You’ve got to get your five best on the field. But when [Brandon] Bowen got hurt, that was an issue, and then obviously Brady Taylor had that injury,” Meyer said. “To get the best five on the line and playing, that’s what you have to do.”For Meyer, that best five were Jordan, senior right tackle Isaiah Prince, redshirt senior right guard Demetrius Knox, redshirt senior left guard Malcolm Pridgeon and sophomore left tackle Thayer Munford.He said the move of Jordan to center has created a need for adjustment through the first eight games this season.“At times outstanding, and other times it has not been great,” Meyer said. “He’s been playing pretty good. But there is a little bit of a ripple effect.”That effect has been an offensive line ranked in the bottom half in the NCAA in rush offense, rushing for 4.36 yards per carry on the season and fewer than 100 yards in the past two games.Before the loss to Purdue, offensive line coach Greg Studrawa said the change in quarterback styles from J.T. Barrett to redshirt sophomore Dwayne Haskins might be the cause of some of the adjustment problems.“You see what Dwayne is doing. He’s throwing more, J.T. was gonna run it more, handle it more, run it himself, so now they were concerned about J.T.,” Studrawa said. “Dwayne’s not a run threat. He’s a threat to throw it, so it’s much different for us and the things and the looks that we’re seeing and how they are trying to stop the pass game with certain blitzes, it opens up more [run-pass options] than it had before.”The defensive strategy for many opponents this season has been to stack the box, limiting Ohio State from getting the run game going. While this has had success slowing down both sophomore running back J.K. Dobbins and redshirt junior running back Mike Weber, Haskins has taken advantage, throwing for more than 400 yards in three straight games.Studrawa said the line has to make plays happen when the box isn’t stacked.“There’s times that it’s not stacked, but it goes back to what you said. They want to stop Mike and J.K. from gutting them and getting them worn out,” Studrawa said. “They’ll say, ‘Hey, you know what? Maybe they’re off in the throwing game or some of those things,’ but we have to do a great job when it’s not stacked — when the box is in our favor to run the football.”Meyer did not confirm the status of Taylor and Bowen for Saturday’s matchup against Nebraska. He said, “They’re both getting pretty close.”For now, a line that was said to have the “five best” players at once has shown difficulties adapting to a new player at center.Jordan will not have the Rimington-winning season that Price and Elflein did in their transition seasons, but he can make a difference in Ohio State’s run at a conference title.Whether he can effectively make that jump, Studrawa said, could depend on the offensive line’s ability to avoid slip-ups in key moments, an area that has plagued them all season.“There’s been times where it’s one breakdown, not the whole thing. It’s a guy breaking down in a critical time and not doing his job,” Studrawa said. “That’s the consistency that I’m talking about. That’s what bothers me. I want it to be more consistent.” read more

first_img50 foot, 60,000 pound spin drier sits at the center of the new Trident fishmeal plant in NaknekCredit Matt MartinThe newest processing plant in Bristol Bay is about to go online this month. Trident Seafood’s multi-million dollar fishmeal plant should get a test run with Togiak herring. Trident agreed to build the plant as part of a 2011 settlement over alleged EPA Clean Water Act violations, and now the company, and residents, should get to see (and smell) it if works as intended.“Download Audio”Construction workers hammer and weld to the twang of country music as they wrap up construction on fishmeal plant in Naknek. The walls are still unfinished drywall and wooden stairs stand in for a future elevator.Project Manager Bob Bates stood in front of the largest piece of machinery in the plant, a 50 foot long and 60,000 pound dryer.“We actually set this unit here when this was still all mud and dirt. We build this building around this dryer,” said Bates.The dryer looked like a giant rolling pin as it spun in the center of the warehouse.“The inside of this thing looks like something out of a sci-fi movie with all the teeth and the blades and everything in it to mix it, and turn it, and churn it through,” added Bates.Tubing runs up the hill and takes the raw fish guts from the processing plant to the new fishmeal plant.Credit Matt MartinAbout a quarter mile of tubing move all the leftover parts after a fish is filleted or canned – that’s the head, guts, fins, and bones – they’ll come from Trident’s processing plant to the new 15 million dollar plus fishmeal plant.After being ground up and dried, the byproduct of salmon can become animal feed and even those fish oil pills you can buy at Costco. Trident also owns separate business that produces fishmeal products. Along with helping their business model, Trident agreed to build this plant as part of a 2011 settlement with the EPA, which had tallied a number alleged Clean Water Act violations against the company’s Alaska operations.Officials at Trident said they weren’t required to build a fishmeal plant in Naknek, but they think this is where the Bristol Bay fishing industry is probably heading anyway. The EPA and Alaska’s DEC are tightening down on how processors handle the millions of pounds of fish waste that is traditionally ground up and put back in the water, hopefully washed out with the tides.Inside this metal silo are thousands of tiny round scrubbers that help to clean the fish odor out of the air.Credit Matt MartinBut some Naknek residents were, and still are, leery about having a fishmeal plant in town. They have a reputation of being …smelly.Jay King runs an aviation service in Naknek and is among those still not convinced that plant won’t stink up the town. King’s not opposed to the plant so much as he’s opposed to its location.“Being next to the Post Office, the school, the clinic, my brother’s apartment building. “I just didn’t think it was such a good idea to have a potential odor issue with all of these entities,” said King.Others say with or without the new fishmeal plant, summertime odor is a common issue and comes with the territory. Russell Phelps is a commercial fisherman and said Naknek is a fishing town. He thinks taking waste out of the water might actually help the smell.“So the beaches in late July and August stink considerable already, so if we could avoid that I’d be very happy,” said Phelps, who is also a member of the Borough Assembly.Before the Borough gave its consent to Trident to build, a few members traveled to Newport, Oregon to tour a 20-year-old fishmeal plant that has been upgraded with modern technology similar to what’s being used in Naknek. They came back less skeptical.  The Assembly heard from plenty of concerned residents, but in the end voted to approve the fishmeal plant. Some supporters think fishmeal may be the future of the fishery, and others appreciate what will be added tax revenue to the Borough. Phelps was among the yes votes.“We shouldn’t stop a project just because we think it’s going to stink,” argued Phelps.Trident has a favorable reputation in the town, and the seafood giant says it puts near a million dollars in taxes annually to the Borough, and tens of thousands more in charitable donations. Project Manager Bob Bates says Trident will do it what it takes to stay good neighbors with the community.“From day one, the goal was to keep the odor down, clean up the river, and basically produce some meal,” said Bates.And at the heart of its effort to keep the odor down is a new air filtration system.Standing at the base of a three story metal tube with ducting that snakes around the entire warehouse, Bates describes how it will keep the smell of drying fish waste out of the breezy bayside town of Naknek.“So basically what we are doing is we’re drawing fresh air down below and we are sucking everything up to insure that we capture all the odors and everything that comes through this facility and gets pushed through these scrubbers,” explained Bates.Inside are thousands of scrubbing balls that look like whiffle balls, water is sprayed down as the air raises. The odor molecules stick to the water.“By the time the air come back out of here, we’ve pulled the majority of all the odor out with this system,” added Bates.Some residents like Jay King say they’ll just have to wait and see, or rather smell, what happens.“Well, it’s here. I am just honestly hoping it is as advertised by Trident,” said King.They’re going to get their chance soon. Trident plans to run final tests of the system with water in a few days, but as far as a true test with fish heads and guts. Bob Bates said he can build factories but he can’t control fish. They’ll test it for real when the Togiak herring arrive, probably before the month is out.last_img read more

first_imgThe Alaska Department of Fish and Game has asked the Federal Subsistence Board to repeal its controversial decision to close caribou hunting in the Northwest Arctic to all non-local hunters.Download AudioMale caribou running near Kiwalik, Alaska. (Photo: Jim Dau)The Subsistence board approved the year-long closure on federal public lands last month, citing the declining population of the Northwest Arctic Caribou Herd and the need to protect subsistence. But in a letter sent Wednesday, Fish and Game Commissioner Sam Cotten outlined several reasons for the board to reconsider.Cotton said new information shows the herd is stabilizing. And even if it weren’t, he said outside hunters represent such a small fraction of the harvest that their take poses no threat to the population. Meanwhile, Cotten said the closure would harm local economies, which make as much as $1 million annually, according to state estimates of the guide and transportation industries.However, the closure is not subject to reconsideration requests because it’s a temporary special action. That’s according to Carl Johnson with the Office of Subsistence Management, which works with Federal Subsistence Board. Instead, Johnson said a new special action would have to be proposed and passed to change the board’s decision.If that doesn’t happen, the closure will go into effect on July 1.last_img read more

first_imgI don’t know about the rest of you, but this year seems to be going by insanely fast. Maybe it has to do with the fact that so many amazing games have been released in the past three months. When you have to put games on hold in order to play other games, you know you have a good problem on your hands. “Gameageddon” wasn’t messing around during the first quarter of 2017.After a whirlwind three months, April’s game offerings give us a bit of a reprieve. This month may not be as flashy as some of the others, but there are still a number of incredible titles begging for our attention. Whether you’re looking for engrossing JRPGs, tactical military shooters, or fun retro titles, you’ll find something great to play in April.Persona 5Platforms: PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3Release date: April 4It has been a long time coming, but Persona 5 has finally been released. Considering how much love fans have for Persona 4, the hype for this game is understandable. Since it is on the more powerful PS4 and PS3 systems (sorry, PS Vita), Persona 5 can add more content while looking flashier than ever (even if absurd streaming restrictions prevent non-owners from seeing it). Proving that JRPGs are alive and well, Persona 5 will be a modern classic for sure.You can buy Persona 5 from Amazon.Drawn to DeathPlatforms: PlayStation 4Release date: April 4The notorious David Jaffe returns with Drawn to Death. While arena shooters aren’t anything new, they are few and far between these days. Drawn to Death has a distinct and quirky art style that will help it stand out. Multiplayer-focused games can either be huge successes or massive flops.

Headaches are among the five most common health issues in children, as well as one of the most frequent reasons for pediatric neuroimaging, particularly in emergency departments.The Pediatrics study found that children who were evaluated in the emergency room were four times more likely to have CT scans than those children who did not go to the emergency room. However, even outside the emergency room, use of CT scans remained widespread. In pediatric patients getting CT scans for headaches, 67 percent received their scans outside of the emergency department setting.Other studies have drawn correlations that CT scans increase a child’s lifetime risk for cancer. A retrospective study published in The Lancet in 2012 suggested that the cumulative radiation from as few as two to three CT scans in a child younger than 15 years old could triple the risk of brain tumors, while five to 10 head scans could triple the risk of leukemia. A study published in the June edition of JAMA Pediatrics noted that a radiation-induced solid cancer is projected to result from every 300 to 390 abdomen/pelvis scans in girls.The Pediatrics study — written by authors either employed by or designated by HealthCore, AAP, American Academy of Family Physicians (AAFP), American Academy of Neurology (AAN) and WellPoint — stemmed from discussions by WellPoint and AAP to find out “to what extent do current practice patterns for treatment of pediatric headache align with practice guidelines?” An advisory group including representatives from the AAP, AAFP and AAN helped frame the discussion that resulted in this study.The AAN recommends in favor of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) as opposed to CT imaging for people with headache, a normal history and neurologic examination. This recommendation was endorsed by the AAP and the American Colleges of Radiology (ACR).“We found that AAN imaging guidelines were most often followed by neurologists when treating children, but not by other physicians,” said Alan Rosenberg, M.D., WellPoint vice president of medical and clinical pharmacy policy. “We want to better understand current utilization patterns to help parents of patients, clinicians and health benefits companies with the information we need to inform and facilitate change to improve care for children and adolescents.”The retrospective analysis included 15,836 children aged three to 12 years old with more than two medical claims for headache.The article was authored by Young and Rosenberg, as well as Andrea DeVries of HealthCore, Thomas Getchius of AAN, Chia-hsuan Li of HealthCore and John Whitney, M.D., of WellPoint.For more information: www.wellpoint.com, www.healthcore.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 07, 2019 VIDEO: Walk Around of a GE Cardiographe Dedicated Cardiac CT Scanner This is a quick walk around of the GE Healthcare Cardiographe dedicated cardiac CT system on display at the… read more Video Player is loading.GE Cardiographe cardiac CT scanner at SCCT19Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 0:38Loaded: 26.15%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -0:38 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

first_imgTourism Holdings Limited (thl) has reported operating profits at levels last seen prior to the global financial crisis, according to the New Zealand Exchange (NZX). “The positive results were driven by tight control of costs, operational improvements, the first full-year contribution from our USA motorhome business and a pickup in motorhome rental activity during the 2011 Rugby World Cup,” a spokesperson for thl said. Total operating revenue for the financial year ending June 2012 was NZ$200 million, up eight percent from NZ$186 million the previous year. thl’s US-based Road Bear made its first full-year contribution to the business’ portfolio in 2012. Revenue from rentals for the financial year ending June 2012 was US$16.1 million and revenue from fleet sales was US$18.3 million. “This result was ahead of our expectations when we acquired the business in December 2010 and is an endorsement of thl’s strategy to expand into the USA market,” thl’s spokesperson said. “Moreover, we believe this result is sustainable into the future.” thl’s New Zealand rentals business achieved gross earnings of NZ$5.5 million, resulting in a rise of 175 percent on the previous year’s operations. Increased demand during the Rugby World Cup 2011 contributed approximately NZ$4.5 million. thl’s operating revenue for Australian rentals dropped three percent to AU$70 million due to the difficult tourism trading environment and competitive pricing over the financial year. Despite global industry instability and uncertainty, thl’s board and management expect company profits to continue to improve. “The company is determined to position the business for the expected on-going decline from core visitor markets,” thl’s spokesperson said. “We are pleased with the significant improvement in underlying earnings, especially since it has been delivered against the background of serious and on-going economic uncertainty.” Source = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T US Road Bear RentalsImage Source: thllast_img read more
