Enbridge reaches deal with Michigan on underwater Great Lakes pipeline

CALGARY — Enbridge Inc. says it has reached a deal with the State of Michigan on the aging Line 5 pipelines that run along the bottom of a channel between Lakes Huron and Michigan.The twin pipelines were laid in 1953 and have raised increasing concerns about the potential impacts on the Great Lakes if the 540,000-barrel-a-day pipeline were to leak.The Calgary-based energy company says the deal with the state includes completing an evaluation by June 2018 on three options to eventually replace the 7 kilometre stretch of underwater pipeline, as well as immediate safety measures to reduce the risk of a leak.The replacement options include placing a new pipeline in a tunnel under the Straits of Mackinac, installing a new pipeline below the lakebed using advanced drilling techniques, and digging a trench on the bottom of the Great Lakes and then installing the pipeline within a secondary enclosure in the trench.Opponents of the pipeline have called for its complete shutdown, with concerns on the condition of the pipeline increasing after Enbridge’s admissions in recent months that gaps had formed in its protective coating.The company says the pipeline remains in good shape and is fit for service, and that it already operates it at less than 25 per cent of maximum pressure capacity for enhanced safety. read more

Without a comprehensive settlement in Cyprus Annan recommends extending mission

In his latest report to the Security Council, covering the last six months, Mr. Annan said that while the situation remained “calm and stable with no major violations of the ceasefire lines,” he regretted the continued stalemate in the political process and the “missed opportunities” over the past 10 years. “In the absence of a comprehensive settlement, I believe that UNFICYP (UN Peacekeeping Force in Cyprus) continues to play a vital role, and I therefore recommend that the Security Council extend the mandate of the Force by a further period of six months, until 15 June 2007,” he said. The current mandate expires on 15 December. The Secretary-General also voiced concern about the “increasing pressure from the civilian population, particularly the Greek Cypriots, to undertake and expand construction projects in the buffer zone, a trend that could undermine security conditions… At the same time, the trend towards increased construction on the Turkish Cypriot side is a cause of concern.” Mr. Annan stressed that the continued involvement of the international community in Cyprus, through the presence of UNFICYP “should not be taken for granted,” as he urged both sides to come together for dialogue. “Both leaders may wish to refocus and redouble their efforts… the responsibility lies primarily with the Cypriots themselves. The United Nations remains committed to lending a helping hand, but it is no substitute for genuine political will on the part of all concerned to reach a comprehensive settlement.” The UN has been involved in the Mediterranean island since March 1964 when UNFICYP was set up to prevent further fighting between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities. It monitors ceasefire lines that extend some 180 kilometres across the island, maintains a buffer zone and has also helped restore law and order. read more

Twoyearold girl died when car with hand brake off rolled into river

“I looked everywhere.”PCSO Caryl Griffiths told the inquest how she dived into the freezing river and smashed her way into the car with a baton.”I immediately felt Kiara’s body. She floated out of the car into my arms,” she said.”All I remember was looking at her body and her face was purple.”I knew it was here because the coat she was wearing matched the description.”Detective Constable Hannah Gardener said the Mini could be seen in CCTV footage at the back of the building.”At 4.28pm bright-coloured trainers come into view from the vehicle and go out of view at 4.29pm,” she said.”At 4.32pm the car started to roll backwards towards the slip. At 4.32pm the vehicle is out of view.”A woman comes of of the building carrying items. She can be seen then talking on the phone.”The hearing was told the woman was Kiara’s mother. DC Gardener said that from video, the car was left unattended for just two minutes and two seconds.After Kiara was recovered from the river, a defibrillator was brought to her before she was flown to the University Hospital Wales in Cardiff.Professor Stephen Leadbeatter carried out a post mortem and gave a cause of death as immersion. In an emotional Facebook post after her daughter’s death, Ms Rowlands wrote: “Due to my own stupidity, I will have to live with the guilt of this for the rest of my life. Mummy loves you baby girl and I’m so sorry.”The verdict was recorded as misadventure Forensic investigator Aled Thomas told the hearing that the handbrake would have needed to be set to just two clicks to stop it from rolling down the hill.

I asked people if they’d seen anything.”I rang 999 and told them my car had been taken with my daughter inside. Then I was running about everywhere and asking drivers if anyone had seen my car. Coroner Peter Brunton said: “As the car was recovered I find that the handbrake was down in third gear.”Miss Rowlands said she left it in reverse. When the car was recovered that was not the case.”The vehicle has been tested and was in good condition with no handbrake defects.”There is going to be no satisfactory outcome.”He said that on the “balance of probabilities” the hand brake had not been set before it rolled into the river.”A perfectly lawful set of circumstances has taken place which has led to death. Kiara’s family have my deepest sympathies,” he added. Kim Rowlands posted on Facebook after her daughter’s death saying that she would have to live with guilt for the rest of her lifeCredit:Facebook Kim Rowlands posted on Facebook after her daughter's death saying that she would have to live with guilt for the rest of her life He said: “The handbrake was found in the unset position and not applied.”Investigating officer Sergeant Shane Davies suggested that Kiara moved into the back seat and that could have triggered the car rolling back. “Kiara made here way into the back of the vehicle,” he said. “It could well be that the movement has been enough to overcome the gravity tipping point and the vehicle has moved away.”CCTV has shown that the car rolled off slowly so that may be one reasonable explanation. “That movement has been enough to start that movement and gravity has done its thing.” A two-year-old girl died after the car she had been left in by her mother rolled into a fast flowing river, as the hand brake had not been applied, an inquest heard.Kiara Moore was left in the front seat of a silver Mini for just two minutes by her mother Kim Rowlands, as she went into her family’s riverside business in Cardigan, West Wales.It was suggested that Kiara moved into the back seat and that could have triggered the car to travel backwards down the slipway on which it was parked, and into the freezing cold river Teifi last March.Ceredigion coroner Peter Brunton said that on the “balance of probabilities” the handbrake had not been set before the car rolled into the river.The  29-year-old mother rang police to report that the car had been stolen with her young daughter inside, but after a two hour search, it was found submerged in the river just yards from where it had been parked.

Laird Some conversions begin in the heart

first_imgHave you ever noticed how flip-flopping is always what the other guy does? But never you. Oh, no! What you do is update your status.While many politicians through the years have been flip-flopping like beached marlin, countless other Americans have been updating their status on the politics of marriage. For example, in 1958 fewer than 5 percent of Americans approved of interracial marriage, according to the Gallup Poll. Back then, interracial marriage was illegal. Today, it is supported by 86 percent of Americans. It’s not only legal, but so widely accepted as to hardly ever enter into a conversation.A similar glacial tsunami (mixed metaphor intentional) is under way with gay marriage. Fifteen years ago, 27 percent of Americans contacted by Gallup supported gays and lesbians getting married. But by 2011, it was 53 percent, and that 26-point shift in 15 years is nudging the speedometer needle past the “glacial” reading.This same attitudinal change is seen in our state. Back in 2006, The Washington Poll (conducted at the University of Washington) showed 30 percent approval of gay marriage. But in just six years, support soared 25 points to 55 percent. The 2012 poll also shows support of marriage equality to be 84 percent among Democrats, followed by those surveyed in the Puget Sound area (63 percent), women (58 percent), men (54 percent), independents (54 percent) and Republicans(24 percent). All of which prompts three questions:Does anyone really believe this trend is going to subside or even reverse itself?If you oppose marriage equality now, at what point in time — if ever — might you be moving over to the right side of history?last_img read more

Game of Thrones season 8 Night King to come back in episode

first_imgGame of ThronesGame of Thrones Official YoutubeGame of Thrones season 8 episode 3 “The Long Night” aired earlier this week and proved why HBO’s Game of Thrones is undoubtedly the best TV show of all time. There were several interesting fight sequences in the show but the most important one came right before the end when we saw Arya Stark using her Valyrian steel knife to kill the Night King.Spoilers ahead for Game of Thrones season 8:In the recently released Game of Thrones episode, we saw Night King and his army of thousands of White Walkers marching towards the Winterfell. Night King was obviously flying high on his wight dragon and Daenerys Targaryen and Jon Snow were fighting him from their respective dragons.In the very last scene of the episode, Theon was brutally murdered by Night King. The Night King advances towards Bran Stark and was about to kill him when Arya Stark jumps over him and stabs him with her Valyrian steel knife. Within just a second, the Night King, who was unharmed even by dragon fire, shattered into pieces like glass. Game of Thrones 8 episode 3TwitterNight King is finally gone from Westeros but will he ever come back to spread the Long Winter?To understand this, we should first learn how Night King was created in the first place. As per George RR Martin’s books and the subsequent TV series, Children of Forest created the White Walkers from a captured First Men. Children of Forest explains to Bran Stark that 12,000 years before Robert’s Rebellion, they were at war with the First Men who came to these pious lands to destroy nature. In order to fight the Men, the Children of Forest created the Night King.As per the legends, Children of Forest are the only ones who can create White Walkers but they were last seen during the Andal Invasions — 6,000 years before the War of the Five Kings. In the current story’s timeline, one group of Children of Forest came to serve the Three-Eyed Raven. This group was eventually killed during an assault on the cave of the Three-Eyed Raven, rendering the Children of Forest seemingly extinct.It should be noted that for almost 6,000 years everyone assumed that the Children of Forest were nothing but a myth. Even the great Masters think that the Children are either extinct or never existed in the first place. Many even assumed that they were nothing but a purely mythical race.But we did see Children of Forest in Game of Thrones season 6. Even Jon Snow found the evidence of the Children underneath the mountains at Dragonstone. It can simply be assumed that either all Children of Forest are now extinct or there are still a few who are simply hiding as their population is pretty slim. Game of ThronesGame of Thrones Official YoutubeIn the upcoming episodes of Game of Thrones, either Daenerys Targaryen will kill Cersei or the Lannister Queen will succeed in killing the dragon queen. If Daenerys wins the battle, there are speculations that she will turn out to be as Mad as her father who was infamously called the Mad King. We are already aware of Cersei’s wickedness and knows for a fact that if she lives then she will rule like a dictator.If either of these two becomes unstoppable then Children of Forest can actually come out from their hiding and turn one of the Men into the Night King, who will then put a stop to all this. Maybe they will make Jon Snow as the Night King!This is a farfetched theory but in the previous interviews, we learned that Game of Thrones season 8 episode 6’s ending will disappoint several fans. What if this theory can actually turn out to be a truth? We just have to wait to see it.Game of Thrones season 8 episode 4 “The Last War” will air next Sunday on HBO.last_img read more

War vs Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy Is Chiranjeevi insecure about box office

first_imgSye Raa Narasimha Reddy, War box office clashTwitterIt’s going to be a clash of the titans this October as two big-budget films – War and Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy – are going to hit screens on the same day. But it looks like Telugu megastar Chiranjeevi seems to be getting insecure about the big box office clash.Both films are loaded with a big cast ensemble. While War stars a never before seen jodi of Hrithik Roshan and Tiger Shroff along with Vaani Kapoor, Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy brings Chiranjeevi, Amitabh Bachchan, Anushka Shetty, Nayanthara, Tamannaah Bhatia, Sudeep, Vijay Sethupathi and Jagapathi Babu together for the first time on the celluloid.There’s no secret that Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy is Chiranjeevi’s dream project and is being made with a budget of Rs 250 crore, bankrolled by his son Ram Charan Teja under his home banner Konidela Production Company. And since War will undoubtedly pull the attention of Hindi speaking audience, Chiranjeevi is apparently panic-stricken that Hrithik-Tiger starrer might affect his film’s (Telugu dubbed in Hindi) collection in the Northern belt to a large extent.”That’s why Chiranjeevi started his promotion from Mumbai and not from here. He plans more promotional events in the coming days to compete with Hritik Roshan’s film,” a source close to Chiranjeevi was quoted as saying by Deccan Chronicle.And since Chiranjeevi wants to make Sye Raa Narasimha Reddy a big bang affair, the actor is reportedly trying to bring Amitabh Bachchan and Rajnikanth at the film’s upcoming promotional event which will be announced soon.Recently, Farhan Akhtar, whose production house is having the Hindi version rights of Chiranjeevi’s film, spoke about the big box office clash. “We should go beyond this thing that two films cannot release on the same day. I hope both the films are good, and the audience gets to watch two good films,” Farhan said at a recent event.Directed by Surender Reddy, the film will narrate the story of Kurnool-based freedom fighter Uyyalawada Narasimha Reddy.”It has always been my dream to play Bhagat Singh. Despite being offered the role back in the day, I couldn’t play it for several reasons and it was later played by several of my counterparts. It was played by several actors across languages. I regret missing out on an opportunity to play the role because I don’t think anyone wants to make a film on him today,” said Chiranjeevi, adding that it was his long-time desire to play a historic character.Amitabh Bachchan plays Chiranjeevi’s mentor in the film. Before joining the sets, Big B wrote on his blog that he is s thrilled to be a part of this project.”Dear friend Chiranjeevi, that majestic super star and icon from the world of Andhra and Telugu cinema, requests for a guest appearance in his magnum opus, on a most valiant period character that he portrays, and I agree. So, am off to begin its shoot in Hyderabad in a few hours,” he wrote in his blog.(With IANS Inputs)last_img read more

How Black Americans See Discrimination

first_imgOne of the paradoxes of racial discrimination is the way it can remain obscured even to the people to whom it’s happening. Here’s an example: In an ambitious, novel study conducted by the Urban Institute a few years ago, researchers sent actors with similar financial credentials to the same real estate or rental offices to ask about buying or renting a home or apartment. In the end, no matter where they were sent, the actors of color were shown fewer homes and offered fewer discounts on rent or mortgages than those who were white.The results even surprised some of the actors of color; they felt they had been treated politely — even warmly — by the very real estate agents who told them they had no properties available to show them but who then told the white actors something different. The full scope of the disparate treatment often becomes clear only in the aggregate, once the camera zooms out.And yet obscured as the picture may be, black Americans take the existence of discrimination as a fact of life. That’s according to a new study conducted by NPR, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, which asked black respondents how they felt about discrimination in their lives and in American society more broadly.Almost all of the black people who responded — 92 percent — said they felt that discrimination against African-Americans exists in America today. At least half said they had personally experienced racial discrimination in being paid equally or promoted at work, when they applied for jobs or in their encounters with police. But within that near-consensus, the respondents reported having different kinds of experiences with discrimination, which varied considerably depending on things like gender, age and where they lived.Take, for example, the question of whether discrimination that was the result of individual bias was a bigger problem than discrimination embedded into laws and government. Among the folks who said that discrimination existed, exactly half of all respondents felt the discrimination that black people face from individual people was a bigger cause for concern. But younger people were more likely to say they felt that institutional discrimination was a bigger concern.There was also a city-rural divide here, with people who lived in urban areas more likely to see this discrimination as driven by institutional factors as opposed to individual bias than those who lived in rural areas. How black people saw their neighborhoodsThe data from the survey show that black people who reported living in mostly black neighborhoods viewed their communities differently than those who lived in mostly non-black areas. For starters, they were much more likely to describe their community as a low-income neighborhood. And they had more negative views about their neighborhoods, too: Those respondents were more likely to say that crime, housing, the availability of jobs and grocery stores were worse than they were in other places. They were about twice as likely as black folks who lived in mostly non-black neighborhoods to say their local schools were worse off than other places to live. They were also more likely to say the police force in their communities were of a different racial background.Personal experiences with discriminationThere were some stark differences in the way people in different income brackets said they experienced discrimination. Just about 2 in 3 people who earned more than $75,000 a year said that someone has referred to them or black people with racial slurs; less than half of all people who made less than $25,000 said the same. The same trend was true when respondents were asked whether someone acted afraid of them because of their race: Fifty-five percent of people who made more than $75,000 a year or more said this was true, compared with 33 percent of those who made less than $25,000 a year. The researchers did not attempt to posit any theories to explain why respondents answered differently based on their incomes. But what could be happening is that higher-income earners might live somewhat less segregated lives and have more chances to have more cross-racial encounters — and more negative cross-racial encounters.I ran this theory by Phillip Atiba Goff at John Jay College, whose specialty is the psychology of bias and racism. Goff was wary of speculating on statistics from a survey that he didn’t conduct, but he offered this useful bit of context that he called “the bind of black success”: Not only were higher-income black folks in more contact with white people, but they also more acutely experienced the stakes of being direct competition with them. “The more proximity to inclusion is realistic, the price of exclusion is more pronounced,” he explained.Policing and criminal justiceAt least half of the respondents said they had experienced discrimination or unfair stops or treatment by the police. Gender mattered here: Men were more likely than women to say that they had personally experienced discrimination in encounters with the police.Age mattered, too: Younger people were much more likely than people 65 or older to say that they or a family member had been unfairly stopped or treated by the police because they were black.But where people lived mattered a lot in people’s feelings about policing. Suburbanites were much more likely to say they were treated unfairly than people in urban areas, and people in the Midwest and the South were much more likely than those in the Northeast to say that they or people in their communities experienced discrimination in dealing with the police.center_img So what might explain the variation in feeling between suburbanites and city dwellers when it came to policing? The most common reason for contact with police is a traffic stop, according to the Bureau of Justice Statistics, so it could mean that black people who live in places where cars are more central to everyday life — people who live in the suburbs and not in denser, “pre-car” cities like those in the Northeast — are simply stopped by the police more often.Not surprisingly, the expectation of discrimination from the police also led many of the people surveyed — about 3 in 10 — to say they avoided calling the police when they were in need. (Low-income respondents were more than twice as likely to say they avoided calling the police.) That finding dovetails with recent research that found that high-profile local instances of police violence — and the subsequent erosion of trust in the police — makes people less likely to call 911.Taken altogether, these survey results aren’t terribly surprising: They’re backed up by the reams of data that show the extent to which African-Americans are far more likely to live in areas with concentrated poverty even when they are high earners, are more likely to go to segregated and underfunded schools, and more likely to be stopped by the police and searched once they are. Black folks are living objectively more difficult lives than similarly situated white folks.But here is a sobering thought: What if the black respondents to the NPR survey, who almost unanimously assumed that anti-black discrimination was a given, were like the people in the Urban Institute study and actually underestimating the drag that discrimination exerts on their lives? As data becomes more accessible and granular, we can more easily see how race is often the only variable that explains disparate treatment. If these responses are how people feel about discrimination based largely on what they can glean from their own direct experiences and commiserating with relatives and neighbors, it’s not hard to imagine that the full picture is even less rosy than these data suggest at first glance.Copyright 2017 NPR.

Link Found Between Facility Volume and Radiation Outcomes for Head and Neck

first_img Catalyst PT image courtesy of C-RAD October 18, 2016 — The association between provider case volume and outcomes has long been suggested in cancer care. A Yale Cancer Center team has completed a review of outcomes for patients with locally advanced squamous cell head and neck cancers treated with intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) and found a distinct association between higher-volume treatment centers and improved overall survival. The findings were presented Sept. 26 at the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO) meeting in Boston.This study used the National Cancer Data Base to analyze 9,817 patients and found that patients treated at higher-volume facilities were more likely to have shorter radiation therapy duration than those at lower volume facilities.The research team’s findings also revealed there was a 5.7 percent decreased hazard of death per additional 20 patients treated per year per facility. When annual facility case volume was defined based on a threshold of 95 cases/year (90th percentile), there was a 17.5 percent decreased hazard of death for higher-volume versus lower-volume facilities.“Our findings suggest a strong relationship between higher-volume radiation therapy facilities and improved overall survival for patients treated with IMRT for locally advanced head and neck cancers,” said Henry S. Park, MD, MPH, first author on the study and a chief resident in the Department of Therapeutic Radiology at Yale School of Medicine. “Further investigation should focus on the role of other factors potentially underlying this association, including radiation contouring, education, multidisciplinary communication, and toxicity management.”For more information: www.astro.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiation Therapy | October 18, 2016 Link Found Between Facility Volume and Radiation Outcomes for Head and Neck Cancers Yale research suggests patients treated at higher-volume facilities were more likely to have improved survival, shorter radiotherapy duration 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 Feature | August 05, 2019 | Dave Fornell, Editor Most Popular Radiology and Radiotherapy Topics in July 2019 August 5, 2019 — Here is the list of the most popular content on the Imaging Technology New (ITN) magazine website fr read more Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left).
