Tall Ships 2017 Outport Program Announced

first_imgNova Scotians from Sydney to Shelburne will have a chance to enjoy the majesty of tall ships in a port near their home next summer. Premier Stephen McNeil announced the outport program for Rendez-Vous 2017 – Tall Ships Regatta Nova Scotia today, Sept. 30. “Tall ships will bring together Nova Scotians and visitors alike for a celebration of our past, present and future,” said Premier McNeil. “They are an important economic boost for our province. This event is also an opportunity to showcase Nova Scotia to the world. “Outport programs promote local food and wine, local performers and artisans and local businesses to the thousands of visitors who will visit Nova Scotia.” Between late June and mid-August, tall ships will visit 11 ports around the province, including Lunenburg, Pictou, Sydney, St. Peter’s, Louisbourg, Pugwash, Port Hawkesbury, Halifax, Shelburne, Digby and end with an evening sail past in Annapolis Basin, a first for Nova Scotia. “Rendez-Vous 2017 is the culmination of a lot of hard work over a number years. We are thrilled that Nova Scotia is playing a key role by organizing roughly one-third of the Canadian ports for the program,” said Doug Prothero, chairman of Sail Training International. “The thousands of young people who will venture here will be moved by the hospitality, welcoming and knowledgeable ports along this magnificent part of the Canadian coastline.” Thanks to a provincial government investment of $1.5 million, people from around the province will be able to see the majestic ships, many of which will have sailed from the United Kingdom, Portugal, Bermuda, Boston and Quebec City, in addition to multiple outports across eastern Canada. Waterfront Development Corporation also announced key Rendez-vous 2017 partners, which include Taste of Nova Scotia, Canadian Broadcasting Corporation, Symphony Nova Scotia and Parks Canada. “Waterfront Development is proud to once again welcome tall ships to Nova Scotia,” said Jennifer Angel, acting president and CEO of Waterfront Development. “We have assembled an incredible team and together with very talented local teams in each of the outports, and many hardworking folks behind the scenes, we will create an incredible provincial platform for local talent and business to showcase the best of Nova Scotia to the world.” Tall ships will visit Canada to honour the 150th anniversary of the Canadian Confederation in 2017. They are scheduled to stop at host ports in Ontario, Quebec and the Maritimes. A large event is scheduled for Quebec City, from July 18 to July 23, giving hundreds of thousands of people the opportunity to admire the majestic beauty of these cathedrals of the seas. The Government of Canada has also provided support to make Rendez-Vous 2017 happen.last_img read more

2 operational creditors take Jet to NCLT hearing on June 13

first_imgMumbai: In a major setback to the lenders’ revival/sale plan of the grounded Jet Airways, two operational creditors — Shaman Wheels and Gaggar Enterprises — Monday moved the NCLT seeking bankruptcy proceedings against the airline.The tribunal issued notices to Jet Airways and banks which own the airline now and posted the matter for further hearing on June 13 when it will decide on admitting or rejecting the bankruptcy pleas. The development comes at a time when banks are looking to resolve the once premier airline’s debt issues outside the insolvency process. Also Read – SC declines Oil Min request to stay sharing of documentsJet Airways owes more than Rs 8,000 crore to a consortium of banks led by the State Bank of India, which now run the airline, while it has a much larger debt pile by way of accumulated losses to the tune of Rs 13,000 crore and vendor dues of over Rs 10,000 crore and salary dues of over Rs 3,000 crore. The banks have appointed SBI Capital Markets as the investment banker to find an investor to scout an investor for the company. Bankers, after taking over the airline late March had invited bids on April 8 to sell up to 75 percent stake in the crippled carrier that formally stopped operations on April 17.

Newfoundland premier ExxonMobil clash over 100M module for Hebron oil project

ST. JOHN’S, N.L. – Premier Kathy Dunderdale concluded a meeting Friday with oil giant ExxonMobil with no deal to resolve a dispute over construction of a $100-million piece of the Hebron project off Newfoundland.But she and Natural Resources Minister Jerome Kennedy were slightly more hopeful about reaching an agreement to avoid arbitration — a shift from last month when they described ExxonMobil’s position as “a line in the sand.”“Whether or not we can resolve it, I don’t know, but we certainly hope so because the last thing we want is to delay first oil,” Kennedy said outside the legislature.“The amount of royalties to the province, the benefits to the province are significant.”Hebron, the province’s fourth major offshore oil site, is believed to contain about 700 million barrels of recoverable oil or more that could generate $20 billion for the province over 30 years. It would be a crucial addition to waning oil production on which the government relies for about one-third of its revenues.But ExxonMobil made waves last month at an oil and gas industry conference in St. John’s when Hebron project leader Geoff Parker said what has been hinted at for months: the smallest of three platform modules, the derrick equipment set used for drilling, may be built outside Newfoundland.Parker said studies done for the Hebron team suggest building that third module in the province could push back first oil expected in 2017 and have significant financial implications.His words prompted Dunderdale’s “line in the sand” comment and spurred St. John’s Mayor Dennis O’Keefe to boycott a send-off party for ExxonMobil Canada president Meg O’Neill, who attended the conference.As part of a hard-fought benefits agreement, Dunderdale said she wants all three major components of the Hebron platform built in the province. She said her Progressive Conservative government is being reasonable and does not want to jeopardize its own royalties, its stake in the project or scare off future investment.She and Kennedy are insisting the work be done in-house after a consultant confirmed it can be handled in Newfoundland, she said.“If there is some compelling reason why it can’t be done here, how do we ensure that the people of the province get the value that we negotiated when we did the (benefits) agreement?”Dunderdale said that question will be front and centre as her government studies ExxonMobil’s conclusions and responds later this summer in an effort to break the impasse without arbitration.Kennedy said about 3,000 jobs are involved in the construction but stressed that any dispute resolution process need not delay the project’s timeline.ExxonMobil declined comment Friday.Arbitration could slap the development partners, led by ExxonMobil, with fines in the tens of millions of dollars, Dunderdale has said. Newfoundland and Labrador has a rocky past with the company. Hebron negotiations broke down in 2006 and the oil company partners walked out on talks.They reached a deal with the province in 2008 to develop the oilfield 350 kilometres east of St. John’s.Development partners include Chevron Canada, Suncor Energy (TSX:SU), Statoil Canada and provincial Crown corporation Nalcor Energy through which Newfoundland and Labrador has a 4.9 per cent equity stake in the project.Kennedy said the province will likely meet with ExxonMobil again in a few weeks.George Murphy, an opposition New Democrat member and natural resources critic, said the government must get a better handle on shipyard capacity throughout the province and stand its ground.“They need to stick to their guns on this one.” by Sue Bailey, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 13, 2012 2:46 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Newfoundland premier, ExxonMobil clash over $100M module for Hebron oil project read more

Womens Basketball Ohio State commits 30 turnovers falls to Rutgers 6656 in

Ohio State head coach Kevin McGuff calls out a play in the first half of the game against Rutgers on March 3. Ohio State lost 66-56. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorIt was a tale of two halves for the Ohio State women’s basketball team (14-13, 10-8) when it took on Rutgers (21-8, 13-5) on Sunday. Despite outscoring the Scarlet Knights 22-9 in the first quarter, the Buckeyes’ ugly side reared its head in the second half, as Rutgers overcame a 13-point deficit at halftime to take the win 66-56. With the loss, the Buckeyes snap a four-game winning streak and now move into the Big Ten tournament as the No. 5 seed. Ohio State redshirt senior forward Makayla Waterman said the loss can be attributed to the 30 turnovers the Buckeyes recorded.“We couldn’t take care of the ball,” Waterman said. “If we want to win any games, that can’t happen. I think we know that, but we were just getting frustrated with ourselves.”Despite suffering the team’s first loss since Feb. 10, redshirt senior guard Carly Santoro said it won’t affect the team negatively moving forward.“I just think it fuels our fire to go into the Big Ten tournament and make some noise,” Santoro said. “We’re not going to hang our heads on this game. we’re just going to learn from and prepare for the next team we have. A loss like this isn’t fun, but we’ll use it to motivate us.”Santoro shot 4-of-7 from the field for a team-leading 13 points with two 3-point makes. Early on, the game looked like a picture-perfect rematch of when Ohio State trounced Rutgers with a 20-point win on the road on Feb. 14. The Buckeyes jumped out to a 22-9 lead in the first quarter, shooting 72 percent from the field in the first half, including an almost perfect 5-of-6 from 3. Janai Crooms was a huge reason for the early lead. The freshman forward led the team with eight points in the first half, six coming from the 3-point line. Crooms was only able to tack on four additional points in the second half to finish the game with 12 points along with four assists and four rebounds. However, the Scarlet Knights employed an effective full-court press to force turnovers and Ohio State went from dominating the first half to shooting only 21 percent in the second half. The Buckeyes managed to make only three shots in the second half.Ohio State head coach Kevin McGuff said the team’s focus will be a key thing addressed in future practices, and that there were times his team handled the pressure of this game “abysmally.”“Our attention to detail and focus was not as good as it’s been,” McGuff said. “We got to get back to making sure we’re sharp in practice and really preparing for the teams we face.”Also factoring into the shift of power in the game was the Scarlet Knights tallying 15 offensive rebounds to Ohio State’s two. This allowed Rutgers to get more looks at the basket and helped lead to the Buckeyes being outscored 41-18 in the second half. Even with forcing 22 turnovers, the Buckeyes could not hit shots down the stretch, going 1-for-8 from the field in the fourth quarter in the defeat.McGuff attributed his team’s late collapse to its failure to minimize mistakes.“I think there’s the fact that we made a mistake and then it would carry over into the next play and the next play,” McGuff said. “One turnover is not just one turnover. It’s potentially a missed defensive assignment or something else. Our kids are trying to do the right thing. They’re just getting a little bit too down on themselves and not getting back to the next play.”Ohio State moves forward to the Big Ten tournament this week from March 6-10 at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis. read more

Man allegedly breaks in door while three kids hide in closet

first_imgVancouver police are asking for the public’s help in identifying a man who allegedly broke in the door of a house in the Image neighborhood while three youths hid inside.The kids, ages 15, 13 and 11, were home alone in the 13300 block of Northeast 31st Street when they heard someone ring the doorbell, Vancouver police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said.They didn’t answer the door because they didn’t know the man, Kapp said. The man left, walking part of the way down the block before returning to the house several minutes later to ring the doorbell again, turning the knob in an attempt to open the door, police said. The 15-year-old girl called her mom and 911 just minutes after 10 a.m., Kapp said. The kids hid in the closet of a bedroom when they heard a crash — the man had allegedly kicked in the front door, Kapp said.Multiple officers arrived and searched the house and area with a dog, finding no one but the uninjured kids inside the house, Kapp said. Nothing appeared to have been taken from the home, Kapp said.last_img read more

Sensex ends in red for sixth straight session gold prices remains flat

first_imgThe S&P BSE Sensex extended losses for the sixth consecutive session on Monday, falling 97 points, tracking weak domestic and overseas cues.The Sensex closed at 26,559 points, down 0.37%, while the 50-share Nifty fell 15 points, or 0.19%, to end at 8,050.”Indices did open with a negative bias on the back of weak cues from equity markets across the globe and lost further ground throughout the day led by losses with capital goods, metals, healthcare and power stocks, even the small-cap stocks were under pressure,” said Amar Ambani, Head of Research, IIFL.The sell-off was mainly triggered by disappointing manufacturing data of both India and China. A survey showed that manufacturing activity fell to a 22-month low in October in India, due to sluggish growth in new orders.Separately, data showed the factory activity in the world’s second largest economy, China, declined for the eight consecutive month in October, renewing concerns over the country’s slowdown.Worries over China’s slowdown led to a sharp sell-off in Asian markets, with China’s Shanghai Composite index and Hong Kong’s Hang Seng ending down 1.7% and 1.2%, respectively.Among the BSE sectoral indices, Metal, Capital Goods and Healthcare were the top losers, while Reality, FMCG, and IT ended as the biggest gainers.The Maruti Suzuki share gained a little over 1% to close at Rs 4,495 on the BSE, after the company reported 29% increase in sales for October. Similarly, Mahindra & Mahindra ended 2.2% higher, supported by a 20% increase in sales in October.In contrast, the Bajaj Auto scrip plunged 4.8% after the company reported 8% decline in total sales for October.Metal shares like Vedanta, Hindalco and Tata Steel ended sharply lower, weighed down by weak economic data in China.ICICI Bank shares were up 0.8%, underpinned by the bank’s earnings, which came in line with the street’s estimates, for the second quarter in the current fiscal. “In spite of assuming elevated credit cost in FY16/17 (to partially capture asset quality risks), we estimate ICICI Bank to deliver healthy earnings CAGR of 15% over FY15‐18. While RoA would be sustained at impressive 1.8%, the acceleration in balance sheet growth should produce leverage‐driven RoE improvement of 200bps over the aforesaid period,” Ambani said.On the commodities front, gold prices fell Rs 10 to end at Rs 26,810 per 10 gm, taking cues from weak metal prices in the overseas markets. Silver prices also ended Rs 270 lower at Rs 36,500 per kg.last_img read more

Upgrade to Air India business class Heres all you need to know

first_imgAn Air India Airbus A320 passenger aircraft.ReutersAir India’s Chairman and Managing Director Pradeep Singh Kharola on Wednesday announced a new bidding system through which a passenger can upgrade her seat from the economy class to the business class by paying an additional fare.”You have to bid for only the incremental amount. Whatever you have paid for the economy class ticket, you have paid… There is a cap we have put on the minimum bid one can make,” he said.This system has been started on flights operating to the US, Europe, Australia, Japan and Hong Kong. It hasn’t begun on flights being operated to the Gulf region.”People who have already booked tickets in economy class, we are giving them a chance to pay a little extra fare and come to the business class. In a layman’s language, this is what we are trying to do,” he explained.This bidding system has been termed “business-lite” on Air India’s website and it was launched in the last week of December.”After the check-in is complete, which means when the passenger is moving towards the security check, the system sees how many business class seats are vacant. And then, the system allots the seats to passengers according to priority (high bid to low bid),” he said.”So, by the time you reach your boarding gate, your upgrade has been done. At the boarding gate, you are given a revised boarding pass (with a business class seat),” he added.A person who made the bid but did not get the upgrade will get her money back, he said. For different sectors, there will be different price caps on the lowest amount one can bid, he added. Across the network, Air India operates 4,500 business class seats.Overall, Air India operates 72,000 seats per day. Domestically, the bidding system has begun on flights among six metro cities, Kharola said.”When we see the load factor of business class, it varies from 50 per cent to 60 er cent. So, now, there is a good opportunity for me to use the vacant business class seats and make some money,” he said.”If the business class seat goes vacant, it is a total loss. But if I drop the business class fares to fill up seats, there would be no net gain,” he added.The flights going to the US and Australia are the ones where people really want the upgrade, he said.last_img read more

Overuse of electronic gadgets triggers early ageing Doctors

first_imgAccording to experts, “tech neck”, which leads to sagging skin, dropping jowls, and creases above the clavicle, seriously affects facial looks of the person by causing frown lines, undereye bags, and horizontal lines on the neck along with fat prominences.“People who bend down constantly for long hours while using any handheld electronic device, like smartphones, tablet or computers, are more likely to get wrinkles. The bending position while texting on mobile phones can cause neck, back and shoulder pain, apart from headache, numbness, tingling in the upper limb and pain in hands, arm, elbows and wrists,” said Vinod Vij, Cosmetic Surgeon, at Mumbai-based Fortis Hospital. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’A recent report by the Internet and Mobile Association of India (IAMAI) had revealed that the number of mobile internet users in the country was expected to reach 371 million by June 2016. As much as 40 per cent of the users consist of youngsters between the age group of 19-30. Experts have said that the frequent forward flexion causes changes in the cervical spine, curve, supporting ligaments, tendons and musculature, as well as the bony segments, commonly causing postural change. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixMohan Thomas, Senior Cosmetic Surgeon, Cosmetic Surgery Institute, said, “As people do not realise the negativity they are causing to their neck bone and the skin, tech obsessed people should take necessary steps to avoid the overuse of the electronic gadgets.” He said the overuse of smart phones causes shortening of the neck muscles. “Apart from shortening of the neck muscle it also increases the gravitational pull on the skin. Ultimately, this results in sagging skin, double chin, marionette lines (vertical lines from lips to chin) and loose jowls (drooping jawline). All these signs have been collectively labelled medically as “smartphone face,” he said.last_img read more

ED Note functionality allows ED physicians and technologists to include comments and questions when sending images to the radiologist, and enables the radiologist to include his notes in response. This can reportedly be valuable during off hours, when the radiologist interprets the exam from home or when the attending physician is not available the following day.Every department in the hospital that uses medical images has its own workflow and access/distribution requirements. In the ED, where approximately 64 percent of all patients require diagnostic imaging services, accuracy, time savings and communication with the diagnostician are of high importance. Infinitt’s ED Note feature adds convenience and a greater degree of confidence for the radiologist interpreting images, said the company. Infinitt’s ED Note module also streamlines reporting with checkboxes and radio buttons, and provides Note Tracking and Note Statistics functionality. The radiologist can indicate a discrepancy between his assessment and the clinician’s with one mouse click, bringing it to others’ immediate attention and enabling an administrator to track the results of discrepancies.For more information: www.infinittna.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | July 02, 2019 Konica Minolta Healthcare Partners With DiA Imaging Analysis for AI-based Cardiac Ultrasound Analysis DiA Imaging Analysis has partnered with Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. to expand analysis capabilities of… read more News | PACS | July 02, 2019 Laurel Bridge and 3M M*Modal Partner to Improve DICOM Structured Reporting July 2, 2019 — Laurel Bridge Software announced an expanded relationship with 3M M*Modal, a provider of clinical docu read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more News | February 12, 2009 INFINITT North America Adds ‘ED Note’ Functionality to PACS last_img read more

Australias Monash Cancer Centre Treats First EarlyStage Breast Cancer Patient With Xoft

first_img May 1, 2017 — iCAD Inc. announced the first early-stage breast cancer patient was treated in Australia with intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) using the Xoft Axxent Electronic Brachytherapy (eBx) System. The patient was treated at Monash Cancer Centre, a partnership between Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre and Monash Health, in Melbourne, Australia.In March 2017, Monash Cancer Centre became the first medical center in Australia to adopt the Xoft System through iCAD’s local distribution partner, Regional Health Care Group Pty Ltd. The system is U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared, CE marked, entered in the Australian Register of Therapeutic Goods (ARTG), and licensed in a growing number of countries for the treatment of cancer anywhere in the body. This includes early-stage breast cancer, non-melanoma skin cancer and gynecological cancer.For the treatment of early-stage breast cancer, IORT with the Xoft System allows radiation oncologists and breast surgeons to work together to administer one precise, concentrated dose of radiation to a tumor site at the time of lumpectomy. IORT with the Xoft System can be completed in as little as eight minutes, making it possible to replace six to eight weeks of traditional radiation therapy with a single treatment.The system’s miniaturized X-ray source can be inserted into a variety of applicators that are specifically designed for certain clinical indications. Monash Cancer Centre will offer the complete suite of Xoft System applicators used to deliver IORT, skin eBx, endometrial and cervical cancer radiation treatment.“Our adoption of the Xoft System underscores our commitment to providing optimal quality of care to our patients and we are proud to be the first to offer this technology to patients in Australia in the context of an international clinical trial,” said Steven David, M.D., MBBS, FRANZCR, radiation oncologist, Moorabbin Campus director, Peter MacCallum Cancer Centre. “In our detailed review of the range of available radiation therapy solutions, the Xoft System’s distinguished versatility across a variety of clinical applications, mobility and unique patient benefits made it the pre-eminent solution for our practice.”Monash Cancer Centre is the second international site to participate in iCAD’s clinical trial evaluating the Xoft System for the treatment of early-stage breast cancer, called the ExBRT trial.“Intraoperative radiotherapy will offer women with early-stage breast cancer another therapeutic option, and, we believe, a better patient experience with less treatment morbidity, and a more rapid return to normal activity. As well as our current commitment to the study, we hope the breast service and other Monash Cancer Centre tumor services, will be able to contribute to understanding the use of this technology in other disease types and stages,” said Jane Fox, M.D., director, breast services, Monash Health. “We are encouraged by the research to date as the global community of treatment centers continues to provide appropriate patients with the unique option to complete a full dose of radiation therapy in a single treatment.”Monash Cancer Centre at Moorabbin Hospital is a key service of Monash Health, the largest health service in the state of Victoria. The Monash Cancer Centre provides cancer treatment for the more than 1.5 million residents of southern Melbourne.For more information: www.xoftinc.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.

Virgin Atlantic unveils Vivienne Westwood uniforms

first_img Images: Virgin Atlantic Image: Virgin Atlantic Virgin Atlantic passengers were given a sneak peek of the airline’s new uniform designs late last week, as trials of the new Vivienne Westwood uniforms commenced at airports, in Clubhouses and onboard aircraft.Over 180 crewmembers were specifically selected to trial out the new gear over the coming months including pilots, ground staff, Clubhouse employees and Virgin-Holidays staff.Each staff member will then be required to give feedback on the movability, breathability and comfort of the uniforms ahead of the full launch in 2014.Virgin Atlantic head of design Luke Miles said the airline’s uniforms and particularly the iconic red are “some of the most envied” uniforms and changes to the product are not “taken lightly”.“These wearer trials are a key part of the feedback process we engage in with our teams around with world,” Mr Miles explained.  “The uniforms have to look sleek, all the while being practical and easy to wear – its a challenging design brief but means so much to our staff and customers so we have to make sure we get it right.”Check out a list of facts about the new uniforms below:–  All ties and scarfs must be quick release for health and safety reasons–  Crew walk an average of seven miles on each flight so it is important that shoes are comfortable–  Many items of the new uniform will be produced using recycled materials – in particular working with recycled polyester yarn made from used plastic bottles.–  Crew must go through a five and a half week training course to earn their Vivienne Westwood designed wings and uniform–  All crew must carry a torch and spare batteries in their handbag–  All shoes must have a non-slip sole and be SATRA (Shoe and Allied Trade Research Association) tested and approved–  Although male shoes have laces, we have designed them so they can be slip on in case of a slide evacuation – it also makes it much easier for the crew to go through security!Source = ETB News: N.J.last_img read more
