REGINA – A Regina police officer has taken to Twitter, asking what it will take to stop impaired driving.Const. Curtis Warnar said a driver pulled over Wednesday morning blew four times the limit while driving children to school.Warnar was so frustrated that he tweeted a message saying that it was one of the few calls that truly bothered him over his nine years in the police service.He ended the tweet with the hashtag “please stop.”Warner also thanked a witness who called in, saying it prevented a potentially fatal situation.The post on the Regina Police Service Facebook page was shared more than 1,300 times in less than 24 hours.“Impaired driving kills, destroys lives and is 100 per cent preventable,” he wrote in the post. “It needs to stop… what is it going to take?”Derek G. Petz, who is 37, is to appear in Regina provincial court on Oct. 17 on charges of impaired driving and exceeding 0.08. He was also charged with having open liquor in vehicle, being a suspended driver and having an unregistered vehicle under the Traffic Safety Act.(CJME) read more
HALIFAX — Fire officials in Halifax say investigators have been unable to identify the cause of a fire that killed seven children in their family home in February.In the first significant update since the tragic blaze, Chief Ken Stuebing of Halifax Regional Fire & Emergency said today investigators were able to determine only that the fire started in the main-floor living room near a couch.Stuebing says nothing leads investigators to believe the fire was suspicious, and they have ruled out smoking materials, kitchen activities and electrical faults as possible causes.Ebraheim Barho and his wife Kawthar survived the Feb. 19 fire that destroyed their new rental home in the Halifax suburb of Spryfield, although Ebraheim Barho suffered severe burns.The couple’s seven children, who ranged in age from three months to mid-teens, perished inside the home.The family, originally from the war-torn Syrian city of Raqqa, arrived in Canada as refugees in September 2017.The Canadian Press read more
NEW YORK — Sears received another possible lifeline Tuesday when the company’s chairman and largest shareholder promised to line up the necessary financing to keep the struggling department store chain afloat.The reprieve came after what Sears lawyers described to a bankruptcy judge in New York as “round-the-clock” negotiations following the company board’s initial rejection of Eddie Lampert’s proposal, which sought to preserve 425 stores and 50,000 workers.According to lawyers close to the matter, one of the main sticking points was that the bid didn’t include cash. The revised version now requires Lampert to deposit $120 million by 4 p.m. Wednesday through his ESL hedge fund.The fate of Sears remains to be determined. Lampert’s bid will go to an auction set for Jan. 14 and will compete with other bids from liquidators looking to shut down the company. A committee of unsecured creditors has been pushing for straight liquidation and believes there are litigation claims against ESL for prior transactions.In a statement emailed to The Associated Press, ESL said it “appreciates the encouragement from the court and the constructive engagement of the debtors as we work to formalize our going concern proposal so that it can be evaluated at the upcoming auction.”“We believe in Sears and will continue to do everything we can to ensure that it has a profitable future,” ESL added.It’s unclear who will be the winner of the auction process, which could take a few days. A bankruptcy judge will then weigh different scenarios including the value of retaining 50,000 jobs, according to David Wander, an attorney at Davidoff Hutcher & Citron, which represents two of Sears vendors.“You always want a competitive bidding process. You never get the best value if you have only one party,” Wander said.The 11th hour negotiation is yet another twist in the rocky journey of Sears whose fate has been hanging in the wind, particularly since it filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy on Oct. 15. As of the filing, the company had just under 700 stores and 68,000 workers.Sears, which began as mail order watch business 132 years ago and grew to be the largest retailer in the world, has been in a slow death spiral, hobbled by the Great Recession and outmatched by competitors like Amazon and WalmartUnder Lampert, Sears has bought time over the years by spinning off stores and putting on the block the brands that had grown synonymous with the company, such as Craftsman. Lampert loaned out his own money and put together deals to keep the company going, turning whatever profit he could for his hedge fund.______Follow Anne D’Innocenzio: http://twitter.com/ADInnocenzioAnne D’Innocenzio, The Associated Press read more

by News Staff Posted Jul 18, 2012 4:41 am MDT Greece’s new government mulls more deep spending cuts despite pledge to ease hardship ATHENS, Greece – The heads of three parties supporting Greece’s month-old coalition government are meeting to try and finalize a new round of austerity measures worth â‚¬11.5 billion ($14.1 billion) demanded by international rescue creditors.Conservative Prime Minister Antonis Samaras met with leaders of the Socialist party and small Democratic Left party Wednesday to discuss the 2013-14 measures after five days of Cabinet-level talks failed to produce sufficient cuts.Samaras won the June 17 election, promising to renegotiate bailout terms and ease austerity, but could be forced to slash public benefits further to help cover the â‚¬11.5 billion budget shortfall.Debt inspectors from the European Union, European Central Bank and International Monetary Fund â€” known as the troika â€” are due to return to Athens next week. read more
AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia – Ethiopian rebels on Monday warned a Canadian oil company against oil exploration in the country’s east, saying the area is unsafe because of fighting.Africa Oil Corp. (TSXV:AOI) should halt all operations until the rebels make peace with the government, the Ogaden National Liberation Front, or ONLF, said. The group is blamed for the 2007 attack on a Chinese-run oil field in the region in which scores were killed.The rebels said in a statement that the company, which has its head office in Vancouver, is “conspiring with the government to exploit the region’s oil.”“ONLF calls upon African Oil to desist from paying blood money to Ethiopia until a just settlement of the conflict is achieved and the people of the Ogaden are in a position to be masters of their wealth and interest,” the statement said.The Ethiopian government spokesman played down the statement, saying the region is peaceful and that the rebels don’t pose any real threat.“The region is now fully stable and peaceful. The government and people are mobilizing together to develop the region,” said Communications Minister Shimeles Kemal.Various ONLF factions have in the near past requested and subsequently negotiated with the government after which they have put down their arms and re-joined the people to lead a peaceful life, Shimeles said.“They have completely lost that capacity as most of their fighters have put down their arms. Now the remaining faction’s leaders are engaged in a routine propaganda to disturb the ongoing development activities,” he said.Africa Oil Corp. said on its website that it has three projects in Ethiopia including in the Ogaden Basin where ONLF has been fighting the Addis Ababa government.Telephone calls and emails to the Vancouver-based company were not returned as of Monday afternoon.A statement from International Trade Minister Ed Fast said Canada supports a peaceful resolution of the situation in the Ogaden region of Ethiopia.“Our government takes seriously any threat to Canadian companies and their employees operating abroad,” the statement said.The rebels want to create an independent state in the Ogaden region, which is inhabited by mostly ethnic Somalis. Peace talks between ONLF and Ethiopians government in neighbouring Kenya ended in disagreement in October. by Kirubel Tadesse, The Associated Press Posted Feb 18, 2013 4:59 pm MDT Ethiopian rebels warn Canadian firm against exploring oil in the country’s east read more

Picture released by Lyra McKee’s familyCredit:AFP A woman reacts during a vigil in Dublin for murdered journalist 29 year-old Lyra McKeeCredit:Niall Carson/PA 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. Ms McKee’s funeral is intended to be a cross-community, cross-border and multi-cultural service, while members of the National Union of Journalists (NUJ) will form a guard of honour.Various political and community leaders are due to attend, including Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, President of Ireland Michael D Higgins and Irish Minister for Foreign Affairs Simon Coveney.Those attending were asked to wear Harry Potter and Marvel Comic merchandise in tribute to the journalist’s love of both works.Miss McKee’s family asked that only family flowers are laid, but a donation can be made via aGoFundMe page set up by the NUJ – https://uk.gofundme.com/in-memory-of-lyra-mckee They said: “We would ask that Lyra’s life and her personal philosophy are used as an example to us all as we face this tragedy together.”Lyra’s answer would have been simple, the only way to overcome hatred and intolerance is with love, understanding and kindness.”Sara Canning, Ms McKee’s partner, said previously: “Our hopes and dreams and all of her amazing potential was snuffed out by this single barbaric act.” The New IRA is an amalgam of armed groups opposed to the peace process and it recently claimed responsibility for parcel bombs sent to London and Glasgow in March.Police believe the violence was orchestrated in response to an earlier search by officers aimed at averting imminent trouble associated with the week’s anniversary of the Easter Rising. The family of murdered journalist Lyra McKee have paid tribute to her as “a best friend and confidante” ahead of her funeral.Ms McKee was killed during clashes between police and New IRA dissidents on the Creggan estate on April 18.The 29-year-old’s funeral will take place in St Anne’s Cathedral, Belfast, at 1pm on Wednesday, and she will later be laid to rest in Carnmoney cemetery.A tribute from her mother Joan, brothers Gary and David, and sisters Joan Hunter, Nichola Corner and Mary Crossan said: “On Thursday 18th April our beautiful Lyra was taken from us.”A daughter, a sister, an aunt, a great-aunt, a partner, a niece, a cousin, and above all, a best friend and confidante to so many of us.”A friend to all, a gentle innocent soul who wouldn’t wish ill on anyone. Such a warm and innocent heart, she was the greatest listener, someone who had time for everyone.”The McKee family added: “She was a smart, strong-minded woman who believed passionately in inclusivity, justice and truth. “Lyra spoke to and made friends with anybody and everybody, no matter what their background, those of all political views and those with none. This openness, and her desire to bring people together, made her totally apolitical.” The New IRA admitted responsibility for the murder on Tuesday in a statement given to The Irish News.Using a recognised code word, the group offered “full and sincere apologies” to Ms McKee’s family and friends, claiming: “We have instructed our volunteers to take the utmost care in future when engaging the enemy, and put in place measures to help ensure this.” read more

Updated 22:54BAD NEWS FOR passengers: the National Transport Authority has announced fare increases for buses, trains and Luas from next week.Fares for monthly and annual tickets on Dublin Bus, Bus Éireann, Iarnród Éireann and Luas will increase from 1 November, while fares for cash tickets, Leap Cards and pre-paid tickets will go up from 1 December.Dublin Bus cash fares will rise by between 15 cent and 25 cent depending on the length of the journey, while Bus Éireann cash tickets will increase by up to 9 per cent.Pre-paid tickets will increase by between 5 and 7 per cent on Bus Éireann and by approximately 10 per cent on all Dublin Bus pre-paid tickets.Luas cash tickets will rise by between 3.4 per cent and 8.3 per cent, with single peak-time tickets on both the Red and Green lin rising from €1.70 to €1.80.The head of the NTA Gerry Murphy said that the fare increases were needed as passenger numbers dropped and fuel costs grew. He said that the hikes would help “protect service delivery at a time of reduced incomes for the operators”.The price hikes had been widely anticipated after the Government reduced its payments to the State-subsidised companies in Budget 2014.Read full details about all of the increases on the NTA website hereDublin Bus cash fares will rise from €1.65 to €1.80 for a journey of 1-3 stages, and from €2.15 to €2.35 for journeys of 4-7 stages – an increase of 9.3 per cent.Fares for journeys of 7-13 stages will rise from €2.40 to €2.60 – an increase of 8.3 per cent – while journeys over 13 stages will rise from €2.80 to €3.05.NTA boss Gerry Murphy encouraged passengers to use Leap Cards where possible as the fares as significantly cheaper than cash fares.He also said that the national public transport companies need to stabilise their financial situation quickly in order to minimise service cuts and return the companies to a stable financial footing.“Cost reduction programmes have been put in place by the operators, but these have taken time to implement, and costs have not fallen to the same extent as the subsidy and revenue base,” said Murphy.“Public transport fare increases have been necessary in recent years as the [NTA] has had to protect the services as much as possible,” he said.The fares will be in place for 12 months.First published at 11:57Read: Bus and train numbers down, but Luas numbers growing > Read: “The outlook for Dublin Bus is stark if this effort does not succeed” – Varadkar and Kelly > Read: Plans to reduce services in Dublin Bus and Bus Éireann contracts > read more
WILDFIRE RUMOURS CONCERNING Sean O’Brien and Jamie Heaslip dominated the early stages of this week, but Leinster coach Matt O’Connor insists that his side have not been distracted ahead of their Heineken Cup clash with Northampton.This story has been running since early in the season and the impression is that the Australian, and the fans, would prefer to learn of a conclusion either way. However, O’Connor says that his players haven’t lost focus on their jobs, despite the constant speculation.“Not really. It’s one of the things that goes with the professional game. There’s contract negotiations going on constantly in the environment. Some not as high profile as these, but it happens all the time. As an organisation and players, it’s something they have to deal with and it won’t be a factor.”The week between Heineken Cup games would have been an odd one in which to announce transfers for the back row duo, but the conclusion of this mini-block of European games may mean Heaslip and O’Brien can resolve their futures.O’Connor claims that he remains in the dark as to the Ireland internationals’ intentions.It’s hard to say. As I’ve said all along, they’ve got a decision to make. We can only present the best case for them to stay at Leinster, being in Ireland and all the things that go with that. At the end of the day, they need to make a decision on where they want to play their rugby.”Leinster prop Mike Ross is a man who greatly benefited from leaving Ireland, but his circumstances were hugely different to those of O’Brien or Heaslip. Struggling at Munster, the tighthead prop moved to Harlequins, where he enjoyed three strong seasons before returning to Ireland to join Leinster.For Ross, moving abroad was a positive experience but he highlights that this is not the same situation.I suppose it depends where you are in your career. When I went away, I didn’t have much experience. I played a lot of games over with Harlequins and it stood to me well going forward. For guys who haven’t picked up a professional contract here, it can be a great springboard.“Look at Robin Copeland who’s just signed for Munster. Cardiff gave him an opportunity and he took it with both hands.”Like rugby?

Stormy Daniels’ suit alleges Trump “purposely did not sign the agreement so he could later, if need be, publicly disavow any knowledge of the ‘Hush Agreement.’ “The White House on Monday disputed adult film star Stormy Daniels’ claim that she was threatened to keep quiet over her alleged affair with Donald Trump and said the president continues to deny the relationship.Daniels’ detailed her allegations in a widely watched interview with “60 Minutes” that sparked new legal wrangling between attorneys for the porn star and the president’s team. A lawyer for Michael Cohen, Trump’s personal attorney, demanded that Daniels publicly apologize to his client for suggesting he was involved in her intimidation. Daniels responded by filing a revised federal lawsuit accusing Cohen of defamation.Trump, who frequently takes on his foes in person and on social media, remained uncharacteristically quiet about the matter Monday. He sent a cryptic tweet saying “fake news” has “never been more voluminous or more inaccurate” but it was unclear what exactly he was referring to.Instead, he left the denials to his White House staff. Spokesman Raj Shah declined to say whether the president had watched Daniels’ interview, but said Trump did not believe any of the claims she made.“The president strongly, clearly and has consistently denied these underlying claims, and the only person who’s been inconsistent is the one making the claims,” Shah said.But Daniels was on Trump’s mind this weekend in Palm Beach, Florida, where he had dinner Saturday night with Cohen at his Mar-a-Lago estate.Trump, according to one person who spent time with him, told guests that Daniels now owes him $21 million for breaking her silence, and that every time she talks, she owes him a million more. Trump appeared in good spirits, laughing off the fact that Daniels will be bringing her “Making America Horny Again” strip show to a nearby venue next month, said the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to disclose private conversations.Mar-a-Lago member Chris Ruddy, the CEO of Newsmax, told ABC Sunday that Trump told him “much of the Stormy Daniels stuff” is a “political hoax.”Trump returned to Washington Sunday night, though first lady Melania Trump stayed behind in Florida. A spokeswoman for Mrs. Trump said she is “focused on being a mom and is quite enjoying spring break at Mar-a-Lago while working on future projects.”In her interview, Daniels said she’d slept with Trump once, shortly after Mrs. Trump gave birth to the president’s youngest son. She also said that a man approached her in a Las Vegas parking lot in 2011, when she was with her infant daughter, and threatened her with physical harm if she went public with her story.In a letter late Sunday night, an attorney for Cohen demanded that Daniels publicly apologize to his client.“In truth, Mr. Cohen had absolutely nothing whatsoever to do with any such person or incident, and does not even believe that any such person exists, or that such incident ever occurred,” wrote Brent H. Blakely. He said Daniels and her lawyer, Michael Avenatti, should “cease and desist from making any further false and defamatory statements about my client.”Daniels, in the revised lawsuit she filed Monday, alleges Cohen made a false statement that damaged her reputation when he released a statement in February that intimated she was lying.In a round of television interviews Monday morning, Avenatti said he was holding back certain details of the alleged affair, including the contents of a CD or DVD he tweeted a picture of last week, for strategic reasons. “It would make no sense for us to play our hand as to this issue and we’re not going to do it right now,” he said on NBC’s “Today” show.Daniels received a $130,000 payment days before the 2016 presidential election for her silence and has sought to invalidate a nondisclosure agreement she signed. Cohen has said he paid the $130,000 out of his own pocket while asserting Trump never had sex with the porn actress.Previously, Cohen has said neither the Trump Organization nor the Trump campaign was a party to the transaction with Daniels and he was not reimbursed for the payment.During Monday’s briefing, Shah said neither the White House nor Trump had violated campaign finance laws that restrict political contributions.“The White House didn’t engage in any wrongdoing,” Shah said of Trump’s behavior, adding that there was “nothing to corroborate” Daniels’ intimidation claims.In the interview, Daniels described a sexual encounter with Trump that began with him talking about himself and showing her an issue of a magazine with his picture on the cover.She said she ordered him to drop his pants and, in a playful manner, “I just gave him a couple swats.” At one point she said he told her: “Wow, you — you are special. You remind me of my daughter.”The interview gave “60 Minutes” its biggest audience in a decade, with slightly more than 22 million viewers tuning in, according to Nielsen Co. estimates.Daniels is not the only woman accusing Trump. Former Playboy model Karen McDougal told Cooper in a CNN interview broadcast Thursday that her affair with Trump began at a bungalow at the Beverly Hills Hotel in 2006. McDougal said she ended the relationship in 2007 out of guilt concerning Trump’s wife, Melania.McDougal has filed suit in Los Angeles seeking to invalidate a confidentiality agreement with American Media Inc., the company that owns the supermarket tabloid National Enquirer. It paid her $150,000 during the 2016 presidential election.The lawsuit alleges that McDougal was paid for the rights to her story of an affair, but the story never ran. It also alleges that Cohen was secretly involved in her discussions with American Media. Share read more

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. The multi-year… read more December 17, 2014 — Although the use of a type of radiation treatment that is shorter in duration and less costly has increased among women with early-stage breast cancer who had breast conserving surgery, most patients who meet guidelines to receive this treatment do not, according to a study appearing in the Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA). The study was released to coincide with the San Antonio Breast Cancer Symposium.Breast cancer accounts for the largest portion of national expenditures on cancer care, estimated to reach $158 billion in 2020. Breast conservation therapy is the most common treatment for early-stage breast cancer. Whole breast irradiation (WBI), recommended for most women after breast conserving surgery, reduces local recurrence and improves overall survival. Conventional WBI, comprising 5 to 7 weeks of daily radiation fractions (i.e., treatments), has been the mainstay of treatment in the United States. Hypofractionated WBI is a shorter duration treatment alternative to conventional WBI, comprising fewer but higher-dose fractions generally delivered over 3 weeks. Based on high quality evidence from clinical trials, expert guidelines in 2011 endorsed hypofractionated WBI for selected patients with early-stage breast cancer and permitted hypofractionated WBI for other patients, according to background information in the article.”Hypofractionated WBI increases convenience, reduces treatment burden, and lowers healthcare costs while offering similar cancer control and cosmesis [cosmetic outcomes] to conventional WBI. Furthermore, patients prefer shorter radiation treatment regimens,” the authors write.Justin E. Bekelman, M.D., of the University of Pennsylvania Perelman School of Medicine, Philadelphia, and colleagues examined the usage and costs of hypofractionated WBI between 2008 and 2013—before and after the publication of key clinical trials and updated practice guidelines. The researchers used administrative claims data from 14 commercial health care plans covering 7.4 percent of United States adult women in 2013, and classified patients with incident early-stage breast cancer treated with lumpectomy and WBI from 2008 and 2013 into two groups: (1) the hypofractionation-endorsed cohort (n = 8,924) included patients 50 years of age or older without prior chemotherapy or axillary lymph node involvement and (2) the hypofractionation-permitted cohort (n = 6,719) included patients younger than 50 years or those with prior chemotherapy or axillary lymph node involvement. For this analysis, hypofractionated WBI was 3-5 weeks of treatment; conventional WBI was 5-7 weeks.The researchers found that hypofractionated WBI increased from 10.6 percent in 2008 to 34.5 percent in 2013 in the hypofractionation-endorsed group and from 8.1 percent in 2008 to 21.2 percent in 2013 in the hypofractionation-permitted group. Adjusted average total healthcare expenditures in the year after diagnosis were $28,747 for hypofractionated and $31,641 for conventional WBI in the hypofractionation-endorsed group (difference, $2,894) and $64,273 for hypofractionated and $72,860 for conventional WBI in the hypofractionation-permitted group (difference, $8,587). Adjusted average total 1-year patient out-of-pocket expenses were not significantly different between hypofractionated vs conventional WBI in either group.”In the United States, although the 2011 practice guidelines concluded that hypofractionated and conventional WBI were ‘equally effective for in-breast tumor control and comparable in long-term side effects’ for selected women, the guidelines stopped short of recommending hypofractionated WBI as a care standard to be used in place of conventional WBI. The absence of a clear recommendation may have contributed to slower uptake of hypofractionation in the United States than in other countries. In 2013, we observed more pronounced uptake of hypofractionation; evaluation of future treatment patterns will be important to document whether or not this trend reflects the beginning of more widespread adoption,” the authors write.For more information: www.jamanetwork.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… 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 | 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 | December 17, 2014 JAMA Study Shows Increase in Hypofractionated Whole Breast Irradiation Therapy Clearer recommendation guidelines on hypofractionated WBI credited for increase News | Radiation Therapy | August 16, 2019 Drug Accelerates Blood System’s Recovery After Radiation, Chemotherapy A drug developed by UCLA physician-scientists and chemists speeds up the regeneration of mouse and human blood stem… read more News | Proton Therapy | August 06, 2019 IBA Signs Contract to Install Proton Therapy Center in Kansas IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.) recently signed a contract and received the first payment for a Proteus One solution… read more News | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 Mevion and C-RAD Release Integration for Improved Proton Therapy Treatment Quality Mevion Medical Systems and C-RAD announced the integration between the C-RAD Catalyst PT and the Mevion S250i proton… read more Catalyst PT image courtesy of C-RAD Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left).
