SAD (Taksali) and AAP tie-up in Punjab unlikely

Posted on by

first_imgThe possibility of a pre-poll alliance between the Shiromani Akali Dal (Taksali) and the Aam Aadmi Party in Punjab for the upcoming Lok Sabha polls looks unlikely, with a senior Taksali leader saying the party would contest the polls on its own.No meetingThe proposed meeting on the alliance was scheduled to be held between the leaders of the two parties here on Sunday but did not take place. SAD (Taksali) senior leader Sewa Singh Sekhwan blamed the AAP for this, claiming that the party was showing more inclination towards entering into a tie-up with the Congress. He told reporters here that his party would contest the Lok Sabha elections on its own strength. Mr. Sekhwan said the party will soon decide as to on how many seats they would contest. AAP leaders had earlier maintained that SAD (Taksali) did not want to give up the Anandpur Sahib seat from where AAP had already fielded its candidate. Taksali Akalis (old guard), including Mr. Sekhwan, who had last year raised their voice against SAD’s alleged deviation from its core principles, had floated a separate outfit in December.last_img read more

Jeev Milkha Singh targets Major ambitions at The Open

Posted on by

first_imgThe last time Jeev Milkha Singh turned up for The Open, he had to leave even before the tournament began in 2009 at Turnberry and two years before that he missed the cut at Carnoustie. So there is some unfinished business at The Open for the Chandigarh golfer.India has a lot of interest in this year’s edition with Anirban Lahiri and Daniel Chopra, the Indo-Swede, also in the field.This is only the second time two Indians are teeing up at The Open. The first time it happened in 2009, Jeev pulled out before the start due to injury, while Gaganjeet Bhullar missed the cut on debut.Jeev comes as almost the last man to get into The Open by winning the Scottish Open to end a four-year title drought.Jeev, whose sole top-10 in a Major has been tied ninth at the PGA Championships in 2008, is hoping to continue his great form in links golf.”I like golf in tough and testing conditions. Wind, cold and even rain makes golf, particularly links Golf a real challenge and I actually love it, even though many find it taxing and even frustrating,” says Jeev.The two-time Asian Tour number one produced a stunning play-off victory in Scotland and now wants to treat his third Open appearance as just another tournament. He did not subject himself to any additional pressure by flying to his London home to relax for a day before coming to Lytham on Monday evening and then playing just six holes on Tuesday.advertisement”The course is looking superb. It is in great shape, just the way an Open course is expected to be. The key is to avoid the bunkers of which there are 206, and the rough is unforgiving. So one has to hit straight, stay in the fairways and not get too ambitious,” said Jeev.”This is just another week for me. I’m not going to treat it differently. I want to treat it like another event. That’s why I’ve just showed up on Tuesday and take it from there.”However, the Indian has yet to pop a bottle of bubbly to celebrate his 14th international victory. “It was great satisfaction winning against a top field and tough conditions. We didn’t celebrate. All plans had to change (as he initially wasn’t in The Open field) and I went back to London, got in at 1.30am after Sunday. We didn’t have a chance to celebrate but we’ll do it next week,” he said. “I take a lot of confidence and want to move back into the top-50 and do well in the Majors.”Jeev is happy not just with his form but the fact that he is injury-free. He won four times in 2006 and four times in 2008, followed by a tough period with injuries.”It was a frustrating period. You just have to hang in there and believe that things will turn around. If you do the right stuff, good things will happen,” he said. “When a player is injury-free, he can work harder. It gives him more confidence. Last few weeks, I was having two or three good rounds. I just needed to put in four good rounds. It happened last week and the win came.”last_img read more

Even though Rohit was dropped twice, Dhawan gave no chance to the bowlers to get him out.It looked like he was batting on a completely different pitch as Rohit got a slow start and previously, even Pakistan openers had struggled to get going right away.Dhawan brought up his century in just the 33rd over as he smacked a boundary off Shaheen Afridi towards mid-off. In the next over itself, there was a mix-up between Rohit and Dhawan and the Delhi player ended up getting run-out.The commentators even went on to say that it was perhaps the only way he was going to get out on Sunday.Eventually, it took India under 40 overs to register the 9-wicket victory, ahead of which Rohit also notched up his 19th ODI hundred.The chase was set up by Indian bowlers, who pulled back things extremely well in the last 10 overs after Shoaib Malik and Sarfraz Ahmed had rebuilt the Pakistan innings despite three early blows.Jasprit Bumrah, Kuldeep Yadav and Yuzvendra Chahal dominated the Pakistani batsmen by holding back the runs and taking regular wickets.Just like their last two matches, India put up another solid show in Dubai on Sunday.last_img read more

Israelis among wounded in US synagogue attack

Posted on by

first_imgJerusalem: Two Israelis were among the Jews wounded in the weekend attack on a synagogue in California that killed one person and injured three others, an official said Sunday. An Israeli foreign ministry spokesman said an eight-year-old girl and her 31-year-old uncle wounded in the shooting attack in Poway, north of San Diego, on Saturday were from a southern town bordering the Gaza Strip. “The two moved from Sderot to San Diego a few years ago,” spokesman Emmanuel Nahshon said in a statement, noting their condition was “good.” San Diego County Sheriff Bill Gore said both were wounded by shrapnel in the attack on the final day of the week-long Jewish holiday of Passover. A 60-year-old woman was killed in the attack, with the community’s rabbi wounded as well. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince Salman ‘snubbed’ Pak PM Imran, recalled his private jet from US: ReportIsraeli Diaspora Minister Naftali Bennett called the slain woman, Lori Gilbert Kaye, “a Jewish hero” who threw herself “in the path of the murderer’s bullets to save the life of the rabbi.” Gore identified the suspect, who was arrested after fleeing the scene, as 19-year-old John Earnest and said he had no prior arrest record. US President Donald Trump denounced the shooting as a “hate crime”. Israeli President Reuven Rivlin called the attack “yet another painful reminder that anti-Semitism and hatred of Jews is still with us, everywhere.” “No country and no society are immune,” he said in a Sunday statement. “Only through education for Holocaust remembrance and tolerance can we deal with this plague.” The shooting in Poway’s Chabad synagogue came exactly six months after a white supremacist killed 11 people at Pittsburgh’s Tree of Life synagogue — the deadliest attack on the Jewish community in US history.last_img read more

The team also has been dealing with the Iraqi Governing Council and its legislative committee dealing with elections to obtain agreement for an electoral law, she added.”If you want an election to happen in January that means by the end of May you need to have those agreements in place,” she said. “Otherwise the electoral authority cannot start working.” read more

Uber backlash in Surrey town as hundreds sign petition amid claims drivers

Posted on by

first_imgThe council, discussing the problems facing Horley, heard that Uber was sending a manager twice a week to check on drivers.Mr Durrant said: “Our officers have met again with Uber and expressed our concerns in the strongest possible terms.”Uber drivers found breaking the terms of the contract including parking in non-designated spaces without a valid parking ticket will receive a penalty charge notice.”Secondly, Uber are sending a manager twice a week to ensure proper conduct by their drivers.”And thirdly, Uber are expected and required to maintain the toilet and rubbish facilities used by their drivers, soiling or littering in the streets or the car park will not be tolerated.”There’s a final option, the council can cancel the contract. Whilst exercising this option would push the problems back into the wider Horley area it has to be considered if this utterly unacceptable behaviour continues.”Mr Durrant later added: “We have already provided extra litter bins and signage in the car park to make it clear to drivers where they can park and have further signage being erected at the entrance to the car park.”If a person sees an individual carrying out the antisocial behaviour and associates this with a vehicle registration number then please report it to Uber so that they can take appropriate action.” Uber app Uber drivers could effectively be forced out of a Surrey town after claims they have been “leering” at and “intimidating” residents.Reigate and Banstead Borough Council agreed last year to lease Uber 50 spaces in the Horley high street car park and a portable toilet was set up following complaints that drivers were urinating in public.But the agreement might be terminated after residents continued to complain to the council and more than 300 have signed a petition to cancel the contract with Uber, the ride-sharing app.Councillors said some Uber drivers had been sleeping in their cars, leaving their engines running and not using the toilets available. I am…concerned at reports of some residents being intimidated or chased out of the car park… this council will not accept this type of behaviourCllr Christian Stevens Conservative councillor Christian Stevens said: “Many of my residents are concerned that the council has provided parking spaces to Uber in Horley’s High Street car park.”This appears to have led to Uber drivers manipulating the car park and in some cases chasing residents off of what is a public facility.”Additionally, there are reports of drivers not using the Portaloos Uber provided, leering and intimidating residents, leaving their engines running, sleeping in their cars and parking in spaces not marked for them.”Councillor James Durrant, portfolio holder for enforcement, said that some residents felt they had been “chased out of the car park” by some drivers.Mr Durrant said: “Although there has been some self-policing by Uber drivers I understand that there are still a number of them who do not park in the designated spaces, leave their engines running or sleep in their vehicles.”This is against the terms of the contract, I am also concerned at reports of some residents being intimidated or chased out of the car park, this is a public facility and this council will not accept this type of behaviour.”center_img Uber is a ride-sharing appCredit:DANIEL SORABJI/AFP Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Triskaïdékaphobie traitement symptômes questce que cest

Posted on by

first_imgTriskaïdékaphobie : traitement, symptômes, qu’est-ce que c’est ?La triskaïdékaphobie se caractérise par une peur irrationnelle et excessive du nombre 13. Il s’agit d’une phobie répandue dans la société, à des degrés plus ou moins prononcés. Elle nécessite seulement un traitement dans ses formes les plus sévères.Qu’est-ce que la triskaïdékaphobie ?La triskaïdékaphobie est un trouble anxieux provoqué par une peur exagérée du nombre 13. Ses manifestations peuvent être plus ou moins gênantes selon son intensité. En fonction des cas, le triskaïdékaphobe est surtout angoissé le 13 du mois, à plus forte raison s’il s’agit d’un vendredi 13 (à noter que la phobie du vendredi 13 s’appelle paraskevidékatriaphobie), mais il peut aussi refuser, par exemple, de séjourner dans la chambre n° 13 d’un hôtel. Ceci étant dit, cette phobie est si répandue que de nombreux hôtels n’ont pas de chambre 13… Le triskaïdékaphobe peut également décliner un dîner ou une sortie entre amis si 13 personnes sont réunies. Dans les formes les plus sévères, sa peur du 13 tourne à l’obsession : il peut se lancer dans des calculs sur à peu près tous les sujets pour ne jamais aboutir au nombre 13, si bien qu’il peut refuser de partir en vacances le 7 juin parce que 7 + 6 = 13.Les symptômes de la triskaïdékaphobieLes symptômes de la triskaïdékaphobie peuvent se manifester à la vue du chiffre 13 ou à sa simple évocation. Le principal d’entre eux est une peur incontrôlable, pouvant s’accompagner de pâleur, sueurs, vertiges, palpitations, hyperventilation… Le triskaïdékaphobe peut également fuir le plus loin possible de l’objet de sa peur ou, au contraire, être tétanisé. Les évanouissements sont possibles, mais demeurent plus rares.Les causes de la triskaïdékaphobieLa peur du nombre 13 est fortement ancrée dans plusieurs pays occidentaux. Elle semble tirer son origine de divers faits historiques et religieux ayant associé, au cours des siècles, le nombre 13 au malheur. À lire aussiTrypophobie, l’étrange peur des petits trousDans la religion chrétienne notamment, le nombre 13 a été assimilé au martyre de Jésus : ils étaient 13 à table lors du dernier repas précédant la trahison par Judas. On peut aussi citer l’exécution du grand maître des templiers, Jacques de Molay, le vendredi 13 octobre 1307. Selon la légende, il aurait maudit la famille royale sur 13 générations avant de mourir… À noter : certaines régions du monde, comme l’Asie, sont moins touchées par la triskaïdékaphobie. En revanche, la tétraphobie (peur du chiffre 4) est assez courante au Japon, en Chine, à Taïwan et en Corée. Pourquoi ? Parce que le chiffre 4 se prononce de la même façon que la « mort » dans ces pays…Le traitement de la triskaïdékaphobieUne triskaïdékaphobie peut être handicapante dans la vie quotidienne : il est recommandé d’entamer une psychothérapie pour la soigner. En règle générale, les thérapies cognitivo-comportementales donnent de bons résultats pour la triskaïdékaphobie, qu’elles soient associées ou non à la prise de médicaments (anxiolytiques ou antidépresseurs).Le 27 avril 2017 à 11:33 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

California Military Construction Projects Possibly Saved from Border Wall Delay

Posted on by

first_img ADC AUTHOR A memo last week from Acting Defense Secretary Patrick Shanahan appears to preserve $310 million in California military construction funds from diversion to border wall construction, Military.com reported Tuesday.California base officials believe construction projects at Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach, Camp Pendleton and Fort Irwin are safe from a list due out May 10 outlining $3.6 billion in funding that could be used for border wall construction, according Shanahan’s guidelines.Shanahan’s memo exempted projects awarded in fiscal 2019, which also includes a $118 million reconstruction of the docking facilities at Naval Weapons Station Seal Beach.Most new construction planned for the three California bases appear to meet Shanahan’s directive to not include projects that have “fiscal year 2019 award dates,” as ADC reported last week.But many in Congress remain wary over whether any military projects are safe, including in California.Rep. Harley Rouda (D-Calif.) toured the Seal Beach base Thursday and later released a statement expressing concern.Navy photo by Petty Officer 1st Class Aaron Bewkeslast_img read more

Gallery Media Group Aims for Authenticity

Posted on by

first_imgThat led to the formation of Gallery Media Group, which houses PureWow. In June, the group launched its second media property: ONE37pm, aimed at young men and focused on the intersection of culture and entrepreneurship. A few years back, Gary Vaynerchuk knew he wanted to get into the content business. But the New York entrepreneur and investor, who has run ad agency VaynerMedia since 2009, didn’t want a clickbait farm just chasing quick-and-easy views.Vaynerchuk was friends with Ryan Harwood, founder of women’s lifestyle site PureWow. Over time, he came to understand PureWow’s business better — and then bought it in January 2017. “The fact that PureWow was not very good at siphoning off audience from Facebook was very interesting,” he says. “It’s a real brand.” ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

According to their results, MBI/BSGI and MRI had nearly the same sensitivity for the detection of additional malignant tumors, but MBI/BSGI was much less likely to be positive in benign lesions.In their work, Dr. Kim and his colleagues evaluated 66 patients who had a new breast cancer diagnosis and a reported mammography breast density of greater than 50 percent with MBI/BSGI and MRI prior to surgery. Both MBI/BSGI and MRI detected disease not seen by mammography; however, the MBI/BSGI was more accurate than MRI in determining if lesions were benign or malignant.Only 26 percent of the additional lesions detected by MRI were malignant compared to MBI/BSGI, where 76 percent of the lesions detected were malignant. This is important for the newly diagnosed breast cancer patient since biopsy is required when imaging studies are positive. Therefore, MBI/BSGI could have led to a large decrease in the number of unnecessary biopsies for women in this trial. “The results of this study suggest that MBI/BSGI could play a crucial role as an adjunctive imaging modality which can be used to evaluate breast cancer patients with dense breasts,” said Dr. Kim.For more information: www.molecularbreastimaging.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more News | Neuro Imaging | August 16, 2019 ADHD Medication May Affect Brain Development in Children A drug used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) appears to affect development of the brain’s… read more News | Colonoscopy Systems | August 06, 2019 Rise in Early Onset Colorectal Cancer Not Aligned With Screening Trends A new study finds that trends in colonoscopy rates did not fully align with the increase in colorectal cancer (CRC) in… read more Image courtesy of Imago Systems News | Pediatric Imaging | August 14, 2019 Ultrasound Guidance Improves First-attempt Success in IV Access in Children August 14, 2019 – Children’s veins read more News | PET-CT | August 15, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Installation of uExplorer Total-body PET/CT United Imaging announced that its uExplorer total-body positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) system… read more News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | August 07, 2019 Contrast Use in First Transthoracic Echocardiogram for Heart Failure Reduces Repeat Testing Heart failure is the fourth most common cause for all admission to U.S. hospitals, and it is the most common reason for… read more Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.

The multi-year… read more Image courtesy of Imago Systems Related Content September 15, 2014 — The American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) released its second list of five radiation oncology-specific treatments that are commonly ordered but may not always be appropriate, as part of the national Choosing Wisely campaign, an initiative of the ABIM Foundation. The list identifies five targeted treatment options that ASTRO recommends for detailed patient-physician discussion before being prescribed. ASTRO released its first list of five recommendations on Sept. 23, 2013.ASTRO’s 2014 list of five recommendations are:Don’t recommend radiation following hysterectomy for endometrial cancer patients with low-risk disease. Patients with low-risk endometrial cancer, including no residual disease in hysterectomy despite positive biopsy, grade 1 or 2 with <50 percent myometrial invasion and no additional high-risk features such as age >60, lymphovascular space invasion or cervical involvement, have a very low risk of recurrence following surgery. Meta-analysis studies of radiation therapy for low-risk endometrial cancer demonstrate increased side effects with no benefit in overall survival compared with surgery alone.Don’t routinely offer radiation therapy for patients who have resected non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), negative margins, N0-1 disease. Patients with early-stage NSCLC have several management options following surgery. These options include observation, chemotherapy and radiotherapy. Two meta-analysis studies of post-operative radiotherapy in early NSCLC with node negative or N1 disease suggest increased side effects with no benefit for disease-free survival or overall survival compared to observation. Patients with positive margins following surgery may benefit from post-operative radiotherapy to improve local control regardless of status of their nodal disease.Don’t initiate non-curative radiation therapy without defining the goals of treatment with the patient and considering palliative care referral. Well-defined goals of therapy are associated with improved quality of life and better understanding on the part of patients and their caregivers. Palliative care can be delivered concurrently with anti-cancer therapies. Early palliative care intervention may improve patient outcomes including survival.Don’t routinely recommend follow-up mammograms more often than annually for women who have had radiotherapy following breast conserving surgery. Studies indicate that annual mammograms are the appropriate frequency for surveillance of breast cancer patients who have had breast conserving surgery and radiation therapy with no clear advantage to shorter interval imaging. Patients should wait six to 12 months after the completion of radiation therapy to begin their annual mammogram surveillance. Suspicious findings on physical examination or surveillance imaging might warrant a shorter interval between mammograms.Don’t routinely add adjuvant whole brain radiation therapy to stereotactic radiosurgery for limited brain metastases. Randomized studies have demonstrated no overall survival benefit from the addition of adjuvant whole brain radiation therapy (WBRT) to stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) in the management of selected patients with good performance status and brain metastases from solid tumors. The addition of WBRT to SRS is associated with diminished cognitive function and worse patient-reported fatigue and quality of life. These results are consistent with the worsened, self-reported cognitive function and diminished verbal skills observed in randomized studies of prophylactic cranial irradiation for small cell or non-small cell lung cancer. Patients treated with radiosurgery for brain metastases can develop metastases elsewhere in the brain. Careful surveillance and the judicious use of salvage therapy at the time of brain relapse allow appropriate patients to enjoy the highest quality of life without a detriment in overall survival. Patients should discuss these options with their radiation oncologist.“We are proud to continue our commitment to the Choosing Wisely campaign and to release our second list of five radiation oncology treatments that we recommend physicians and patients discuss in more detail prior to treatment,” said Colleen A.F. Lawton, M.D., FASTRO, chair of ASTRO’s board of directors. “ASTRO is dedicated to supporting a strong doctor-patient relationship to ensure that patients are able to make sound and informed healthcare decisions. Both of ASTRO’s lists provide evidence-based recommendations that will foster detailed conversations so that patients receive appropriate, high-quality radiation oncology care.”ASTRO’s Choosing Wisely list was developed after several months of careful consideration and thorough review, using the most current evidence about management and treatment options. In January 2014, ASTRO formed a work group to develop the second Choosing Wisely list with representatives from health policy, government relations, and clinical affairs and quality. The work group narrowed a list of 28 topics to nine potential items. A survey was sent to ASTRO’s members to rate the value and relevancy of each item. The survey also included an open response option for members to comment on the nine suggested items and to provide additional ideas for the Choosing Wisely list. Using the survey results, the work group submitted a list of eight items to ASTRO’s board of directors, from which the final list of five items was selected. An extensive literature review was conducted for each topic, and the work group drafted the text and selected references for each topic. The final items for submission were approved by ASTRO’s board of directors.For more information: www.astro.org, www.choosingwisely.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

Lawmakers Not Giving Up on GSE Reform

Posted on by

first_img It appears GSE reform may actually be on the horizon—or at least discussed regularly in Washington—thanks to a new bill proposed by Congressman French Hill (R-Arkansas) recently.The bill, called the HR 5505 GSE Review and Reform Act, would require the U.S Treasury Secretary to study the Federal Housing Finance Agency’s conservatorship of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac annually, as well as the impact ending that conservatorship might have. The bill would also require the Treasury to present recommendations to Congress each year on how to progress GSE reform and move toward ending the conservatorship.Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac have been under FHFA conservatorship for eight years, when the GSEs required a bailout after the housing market crashed in 2008. Though both Democrats and Republicans have pushed for GSE reform in recent years, Hill says little has been done by Congress to change the conservatorship or even consider a path toward reforming the current system.“There has been no progress toward moving these federally dependent GSEs out of the conservatorship,” Hill said. “My bill would force Treasury to study this issue and present its recommendations to Congress at least once a year, creating engagement on the best path forward on housing finance reform to end taxpayer exposure and ensure access to mortgage credit for Americans.”“There has been no progress toward moving these federally dependent GSEs out of the conservatorship.”Rep. French Hill (R-Arkansas)GSE reform has been hot in the news lately, with parties on both sides of the aisle making pushes in Congress. In mid-May, 12 right-center organizations wrote a letter that urged Congress to pass the Mulvaney Bill, a GSE reform bill sponsored by Rep. Mick Mulvaney (R-South Carolina) that would suspend the GSE’s obligation to fund the National Housing Trust Fund and Capital Magnet Fund until they were better capitalized.Not long after that, a group of 32 Democratic House of Representatives members wrote to Treasury Secretary Jack Lew and FHFA Director Mel Watt to demand reassessment of the Preferred Stock Purchase Agreement (PSPA), which requires the GSEs to have a capital buffer of zero by Jan. 1 of next year. This request came on the back of Watt’s February speech at the Bipartisan Policy Center, when he proclaimed the GSEs’ capital buffer as one of the biggest risks of conservatorship to date.Catch up on the latest news about GSE reform here.
