The Imperial Delhi stresses importance of hand hygiene

first_imgThe Imperial New Delhi joined hands with Hotel Association of India (HAI) to observe the 6th HAI Hand Hygiene Day by creating awareness amongst both associates and guests about the importance of hand hygiene.This year, the overarching theme for World Hand Hygiene Day by W.H.O was “Clean care for all – it’s in your hands”, focusing on the achievement of universal health coverage (UHC) which includes access to quality essential health care services, and access to safe, effective, quality and affordable essential medicines and vaccines for all. Hand hygiene is critical to achieve UHC as it has a direct impact on the quality of care and patient safety across all levels of the health system. Also Read – The Puja carnivalIncorporating the same message, The Imperial conducted various activities to inculcate greater responsibility towards hand hygiene by engaging associates and creating substantial awareness about the issue. Speaking on the occasion, Vijay Wanchoo -Sr Executive VP and GM, The Imperial New Delhi said, “Hand hygiene is vital to a healthy lifestyle which is why we at The Imperial strive to maintain best practices and my aim is to promote initiatives like these so they reach the grass root level. When we are operating in the service industry it becomes our prerogative to prioritise health in every way which is why the message of clean hands as the foundation of a healthy system is reiterated every year in the hotel. Like last year, this year too, we had organised focused activities to emphasise on keeping hand hygiene at all times and shall continue to do so in near future to make our country aware, safe and healthy”. HAI intends to create awareness among the local communities, schools, orphanages, public institutions, guests, visitors and employees of hotels and the people who handle food by including them in a series of activities under the program. It aims to spread the importance of washing hands with soap and water or using a hand sanitiser as the simplest and most cost-effective way of promoting community health and well-being.last_img read more

Greenpeace says Resolute Forests defamation lawsuit is an attempt to silence critics

THUNDER BAY, Ont. — Greepeace has filed court documents saying a lawsuit against it is an attempt to silence its criticism of a forestry company’s harvesting practices.[np_storybar title=”How Greenpeace landed itself in serious legal trouble with its campaign against a forestry company” link=”https://business.financialpost.com/2014/07/16/greenpeace-resolute/”%5DTerence Corcoran: Interfering with economic relations is a far more serious bit of wrongdoing under Canadian tort law. Greenpeace lost its first attempt to get the economic relations part of the case removed, claiming there was lack of evidence in Resolute Forest’s claims. Keep reading. [/np_storybar]“Greenpeace states that the Plaintiffs’ claims for defamation and interference with economic relations, have no merit and in fact are being made to harass, intimidate and silence Greenpeace,” the environmental group said in a statement of defence filed Thursday.The papers were filed in response to a defamation suit brought against it last year by Montreal-based Resolute Forest Products.Resolute brought the case in 2013 after Greenpeace accused it of building roads and cutting trees in regions of Quebec it had promised it would stay out of under the Canadian Boreal Forest Agreement, an agreement on forest preservation and harvesting signed by environmental groups and Canada’s main forestry companies.Greenpeace later retracted allegations it had made about road-building, but Resolute accuses the group of repeating those charges nonetheless.Resolute also accuses Greenpeace of falsely claiming it had mishandled workers’ pensions, and that the group mischaracterized the amount of recycled fibre in Resolute products.Those claims were circulated to Resolute’s customers and at its annual general meeting. The company alleges they hurt its reputation and cost it a coveted eco-friendly certification.The full scope of the damage is not yet known by Resolute“The full scope of the damage is not yet known by Resolute,” says the statement of claim, which was also laid against two individual Greenpeace members. The lawsuit asks for $7 million in damages.Resolute has also filed a similar lawsuit against an environmental auditing firm claiming its draft report helped lead to the company losing its Forest Stewardship Council approved status. The company claims the two auditors made errors and were biased against it.The report has not been released, pending the lawsuit. Resolute is requesting a new audit be conducted.“The lawsuits against Greenpeace and Rainforest Alliance meet the classic profile of a SLAPP suit (strategic lawsuit against public participation) because they have been brought to silence criticism of the company’s conduct,” said the Greenpeace documents.Greenpeace accused Resolute of filing the lawsuit in Ontario instead of their Quebec headquarters because that province has legislation against such litigation. Greenpeace says Resolute has lobbied heavily against introducing such a law in Ontario.It denies Resolute’s claims that it sought to damage the company and calls its statements fair comment.“Greenpeace’s objective has never been to cause harm to Resolute Forest Products, but rather to promote an explicit vision for the future of the boreal forest which includes Resolute Forest Products and other forest companies playing an important role as part of a diversified forest economy,” says its statement. — By Bob Weber in Edmonton read more

MIT grad chooses Brock for big data experience

Brock’s Goodman School of Business is like a second home for Lola Abduvaitova’s family.The MSc student is the latest in her line of siblings to attend the Goodman School for a graduate program.Two of her siblings, Abdu (MBA ’09) and Mia (MBA ’16) hold Goodman MBA degrees and work at a major Canadian bank in the area of data and analytics. A third sibling, Adkham, is currently working on his MBA degree here, as well.Lola graduated from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) this year with an undergraduate degree in mathematics.Originally from Uzbekistan, she made her way to MIT to follow in the footsteps of her father, a mathematics professor who “is a big inspiration for all of us,” she said.Her goal to become a professor was a natural choice, and research is something she has been focused on for a long time.“My passion for research began in high school. I worked on an independent math project and presented my project at a university research conference and they published my abstract in the conference journal, making me even more interested in research,” she said.Her career goal led her to Goodman’s Master of Science in Management (MSc) program, where she is looking forward to applying her math and computer programming knowledge.“I learned how heavily research focused the MSc program is. After I finish this program, it’s going to give me a lot of opportunities to continue my research and teaching, and get into a PhD program to continue my pathway in this profession,” she said.As for which field of academia she will pursue, she sees good research opportunities in data science.“In my junior year of college, I noticed that companies are putting a lot of emphasis on data science and looking at it as a tool to solve some of the most challenging problems they are facing. This field is developing really fast and there’s a lot of attraction both from academia and industry in it,” she said.Part of her decision to attend Goodman was the new Centre for Business Analytics, which started operation this month.“I was very pleased to hear that it is now open and I hope I’ll take advantage of it while I’m here,” she said.Although she’s only been at Brock for a month and a half, she says she already feels at home and says, “I love the campus and its location. It’s very beautiful here.” read more

Stan Drayton leaves Ohio State for Chicago Bears

I will forever love my young men and the effort they display everyday. And I love The Ohio State University. Go Bucks!— Stan Drayton (@OSUcoachDrayton) February 5, 2015 The Cleveland native coached each of the first two 1,000-yard running backs under OSU coach Urban Meyer. Former Buckeye Carlos Hyde gained 1,521 yards and scored 15 touchdowns on the ground under Drayton in 2013, while sophomore running back Ezekiel Elliott racked up 1,878 yards and 18 rushing touchdowns this season.Drayton also helped secure the commitment of four-star running back Mike Weber from Detroit’s Cass Tech High School. Weber signed his letter of intent to play for the Buckeyes on Wednesday, when Drayton said he and Meyer were on the phone recruiting Weber past midnight the night before.I’m hurt as hell I ain’t gone lie— Mike Weber (@mikeweber25) February 5, 2015The news of Drayton’s departure was first reported Thursday by Brad Biggs of the Chicago Tribune, while Eleven Warriors reported that Drayton interviewed with the Bears Thursday morning.

BBC decorated canteen with huge Bake Off images before it lost show

first_imgWe literally JUST redecorated the canteen at the BBC 😒 #GBBO pic.twitter.com/sWWP3EKWzE— Julia Macfarlane (@juliamacfarlane) September 12, 2016 You beat me to it @juliamacfarlane! A decorating disaster. Could there be a programme in that? The Great British Paint Off?— ritula shah (@ritula) September 12, 2016 It is enough to leave a bitter taste in the mouth. Hours after the BBC lost the rights to its most successful show, The Great British Bake Off, the corporation revealed it had only  just redecorated the canteen with images promoting the programme.According to one BBC employee, large images of Paul Hollywood and Mary Berry, the baking show’s judges, had only just been put up on the walls of the staff canteen.BBC producer and reporter Julia Macfarlane tweeted: “We literally JUST redecorated the canteen at the BBC” with an unimpressed emoji.Accompanying the tweet is an image of the large pictures in the canteen. Berry is quoted saying: “The terror of a soggy bottom has been keeping me up all night.”Hollywood is illustrated with another quote from the show: “Keep your biscuits erect, you’ve got four hours to do so.” A BBC spokesman told The Telegraph: “We have pictures of many much-loved BBC stars in our buildings.”Channel 4 poached the show from the BBC after the corporation refused to pay £25 million a year to hold on to it.The company behind the baking show, Love Productions, announced on Monday afternoon that it would withdraw the programme from the BBC at the end of the current series, having failed to seal a new deal after “more than a year of exhaustive negotiations”.Channel 4 then announced it had a three-year deal with the production company, and will be broadcasting the show after the current series. Ritula Shah, another BBC member of staff, joked they could begin a “Great British Paint Off”. Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily  Front Page newsletter and new  audio briefings. It is unclear whether the BBC will keep the decorations up, or whether they will have to re-decorate the canteen after the show is moved to Channel 4.Ms Macfarlane suggested the company “may have to wallpaper over it”. @ritula They’re going to have to wallpaper over it surely. How awkward!— Julia Macfarlane (@juliamacfarlane) September 12, 2016 Love is understood to have rejected bigger offers from both Netflix and ITV.However, the BBC’s canteen images may remain relevant – as it is unclear whether the presenters of the BBC show will move to Channel 4.Mary Berry and Paul Hollywood, as well as hosts Sue Perkins and Mel Giedroyc, have all previously expressed a desire to stay with the BBC.Perkins used her Twitter profile to share a BBC statement in which the corporation said that Bake Off was a “quintessentially BBC programme”.last_img read more

The radiopharmaceutical is a product of ITM´s subsidiary ITG Isotope Technologies Garching GmbH. CHMP is part of the European Medicines Agency (EMA).EndolucinBeta, respectively 177Lutetium chloride, is used in targeted radionuclide therapy in the field of precision oncology. It is a radiopharmaceutical precursor, used for the radiolabeling of carrier molecules, such as peptides, monoclonal antibodies, vitamins or other substrates. The active substance of EndolucinBeta is no-carrier-added (n.c.a.) Lutetium (177Lu) chloride, a radioactive isotope of Lutetium that emits predominantly beta radiation. 177Lutetium has a half-life of 6.7 days.The clinical utility of EndolucinBeta when attached to relevant carrier molecules has already been demonstrated in receptor-targeted radionuclide therapies. Biomolecules radiolabeled with n.c.a. 177Lutetium bind to specific receptors on the tumor’s surface. Subsequently they deposit cytotoxic doses of ionizing radiation precisely at the tumorsite by means of transmitting low-energy beta particles. 177Lutetium reaches cells within a maximum of a 1.7 mm radius, which means that toxicity is highly localized and healthy tissue in the surroundings of the targeted tumor is minimally affected.ITM has developed a unique methodology to produce n.c.a. 177Lutetium, which provides the highest specific activity, highest purity and the best preconditions for radiolabeling biomolecules. Furthermore, n.c.a. 177Lutetium features the highest achievable radionuclide purity (no metastable longlived 177m-Lutetium impurity). This ensures effective and economical waste management and environmental sustainability as compared to alternative forms and production routes of the 177Lutetium radioisotope.EndolucinBeta will be available with an activity concentration of 40 GBq/ml at ART (activity reference time) as a solution with a total content of 3 – 150 GBq Lutetium (177Lu).For more information: www.ema.europa.eu/ema FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | August 02, 2019 ASRT Supports Radiopharmaceutical Reimbursement Bill The American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) announced its support for House Resolution (HR) 3772, a measure… read more News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 26, 2019 NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes Awarded $30 Million by U.S. Department of Energy NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes LLC has been awarded $15 million in a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of… read more News | Interventional Radiology | July 31, 2019 International Multidisciplinary Group Publishes Recommendations for Personalized HCC Treatment With Y90 TheraSphere New consensus recommendations for personalized treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with BTG’s TheraSphere have… read more News | PET-CT | June 19, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Install of uMI 550 Digital PET/CT United Imaging announced the first U.S. clinical installation of the uMI 550 Digital positron emission tomography/… read more Figure 1. A high-fidelity 3-D tractography of the left ventricle heart muscle fibers of a mouse from Amsterdam Ph.D. researcher Gustav Strijkers.

Greek talks go backwards as default looms

first_imgRelated posts:What if there’s no deal on rescuing Greece by June 30 deadline? Global markets fall as Greece closes banks and twin defaults loom Europe’s pointless exercise in Greek austerity Puerto Rico’s governor says Washington must help with staggering debt BRUSSELS, Belgium – Greece and its EU-IMF creditors failed to break the deadlock in emergency talks on Thursday to reach a bailout deal, raising fresh fears of a default by Athens that could send it crashing out of the euro.Eurozone finance minister talks that had been supposed to pave the way for EU leaders to sign an accord at a summit in Brussels broke up abruptly with no agreement on a Greek financial reform plan.Marathon meetings between leftist Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and the heads of the European Commission, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund, Greece’s main creditors, also ended with no deal.“We have not made the necessary progress. In some areas one even gets the impression that we have moved backwards,” Germany’s hardline Chancellor Angela Merkel told reporters.Asia’s leading stock markets slid Thursday as traders awaited the outcome of the fast-changing negotiations while most European markets ended steady after a riding a rollercoaster of small gains and drops.Greece needs creditors to unlock the remaining funds in its bailout to pay a 1.5 billion euro ($1.7 billion) debt payment to the IMF, but the lenders have refused until Greece agrees to new spending cuts and reforms.Tsipras, whose radical Syriza party won elections in January after promising Greeks it would end five years of bitter bailout-imposed austerity, insisted that a deal was still possible.“After the comprehensive Greek proposals, I’m confident we’ll reach a compromise that will help the eurozone and Greece to overcome the crisis,” Tsipras said as he arrived at the summit.He was later seen laughing and joking with Merkel and Italian Prime Minister Matteo Renzi.EU President Donald Tusk — who last week warned of the growing risk of a “chaotic, uncontrollable Grexident” — said on Thursday that he saw the possibility of a “happy end” to the talks, comparing them to a drama by the Greek playwright Sophocles.But there were few smiles among the finance ministers after their talks broke up, with sources saying they were likely to meet again on Saturday, which would be their eleventh set of talks since the stand-off began.

Alain Jocard/AFPAll speculationThe creditors have insisted on reforms to pensions and VAT as well as cuts to defence spending before they release any of the remaining 7.2 billion euros in Greece’s 2012 bailout fund.Differences between the two sides were so wide that despite two days spent to strike a compromise, EU-IMF creditors and Greece admitted failure and tabled rival reform plans to worried eurozone finance ministers.Greece’s outspoken Finance Minister Yanis Varoufakis said some of his counterparts had also “criticized not only our text but also the text of the [creditor] institutions.”Tsipras had been up for much of the night locked in talks with Christine Lagarde of the International Monetary Fund, Mario Draghi of the European Central Bank and Jean-Claude Juncker of the European Commission.The IMF meanwhile said that it believes Greece will make the payment scheduled for June 30.Talk of a default is “all speculation, because we’re expecting the payment to be made on June 30th and that’s what the Greek authorities have said publicly,” said Fund spokesman Gerry Rice.New plans submitted Sunday by Greece aim make an eight billion euros in savings, mostly through new taxes on the wealthy and businesses, VAT increases and a cut in defence spending.But in counter-proposals handed to Greece on Wednesday, creditors are calling for further measures on retirement, value-added tax for restaurants, and for defense expenditure to be slashed by 400 million euros instead of the proposed 200 million euros.Greece’s banking system has been kept afloat by cash injections from the ECB as wary Greeks withdraw their deposits, but on Thursday, the Bank of Greece did not request extra liquidity from the ECB, reflecting a stabilization in the withdrawals.Athens has also warned any accord would need to be approved by parliament before June 30, which risks splitting Tsipras’s Syriza party, where many on the left wing view him as reneging on campaign promises.Any Greek agreement will also need to deal with what comes next, with EU officials suggesting an extension of the bailout until the end of the year, followed by a possible third aid package to keep Greece afloat.

Costly Coastlines

first_img June 6, 2018 470 Views 2018-06-06 Alison Rich Share in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, journal, Newscenter_img Would-be buyers casting their net for a shelter by the shore would be wise to take note: according to a new CoreLogic study, the nation’s priciest places to live are largely located on its two coasts. And amid today’s morphing marketplace—i.e., new limits on state and local tax deductions compounded by a drop in the mortgage interest deduction—potential purchasers might not bite if the price isn’t right.A quick glance at CoreLogic’s methodology: Employing data pulled from public records to assess the high-cost locales, the company first estimated the annual mortgage interest payment for each county it studied. Then it pinpointed the median annual property tax amount and then ranked the counties by total cost, identifying the top-100 highest-cost counties.On the West Coast, California hosts a high concentration of expensive communities, CoreLogic reports. Twenty-two Golden State counties made the list—all of them adjacent to or close to the coast; 16 of those also residing in the top-50 list. Four California counties—San Mateo, San Francisco, Marin, and Santa Clara—had an average 2017 loan origination amount over the new maximum of $750,000 and a median property tax amount north of $6,000.Prices are also making waves on the East Coast, the study found. There, New York and New Jersey together represent 23 of the top-100 counties and 28 percent of the top 50. Last year’s (gulp) $924,000 average loan amount in New York, New York, outstrips the new origination limit for mortgage interest tax.Although it’s between the coasts, Texas’ surging property tax amounts gained that state a seat at the top-100 table, with five counties materializing on the list. While not in the top 50 when looking at both mortgage interest expense and property tax, four of them—Collin and Denton (Dallas-Plano-Irving CBSA), Travis (Austin-Round Rock CBSA), and Fort Bend (Houston area)—have median property taxes topping $5,000. If ranked by property tax amounts alone, each of those four counties would rank in the top 50.Read the full study on CoreLogic’s site here. Costly Coastlineslast_img read more

Reservoir cleanup in wake of filthy Germasoyia posts

first_imgVideos and photos of a filthy Germasoyia dam posted on social media last month has prompted the fishermen’s association to publicise its annual clean-up campaign which will be held on January 21.The photos posted on December 28 showed bags filled with rubbish, glass bottles, tin cans and even a chair lying on the reservoir bed.But the organisers of the event, the Cyprus Freshwater Angling Association, clarified that the social media posts merely highlighted a long-standing problem.“The problems recorded in the video have been known to us for many years and are the main problems our association has been struggling with for more than a decade,” the association said in a statement on Monday. “Protecting the special environment of our reservoirs, although not our own responsibility, has been given priority by the association.”Members clean the reservoirs every year with expenses covered by the association’s funds and sponsorships.“In recent years, we have been trying to involve families and young people, organised groups such as scouts and even non-organised groups beyond our families.”In addition, special attention has been paid to the education and training of fishermen, especially the young ones who are the future of fishing in the country.The results, the association noted, are encouraging as the budding fishermen learn to love and respect the sport, while protecting the environment of reservoirs.Every time the members of the association go to enjoy their favourite sport, they say, they are faced with pollution and thus become supporters of any attempt to preserve and improve the natural environment.“In many cases, the presence of members of our association at dams contributed to the extinction of fires, to the rescue of birds and fish and, of course, to cleaning the beaches,” the association said, adding that in reservoirs where fishing is banned dumping of rubbish is ‘out of control’.The Cyprus Freshwater Angling Association calls on people to take part in the cleaning campaign, saying “water from reservoirs are what we drink and what we water our land with. It is the water with which we water the vegetables that end up on our plates.”The campaign will start at 9.30am on Sunday, January 21.
