Probe completed into handling of videotape by UN force in Lebanon

Spokesman Fred Eckhard said that the Under-Secretary-General for Management, Joseph Connor, would present the report to Secretary-General Kofi Annan late this afternoon.”We’ll announce next steps as soon as the Secretary-General has had time to consider the report,” said Mr. Eckhard, adding, “I assume that announcement will come tomorrow.”In a recent report on the UN Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL), Mr. Annan noted that a “controversy arose between the Israeli authorities and the United Nations over a UNIFIL videotape, filmed on 8 October 2000, of vehicles that may have been used by Hizbollah in the abduction of three Israeli Defence Force soldiers on 7 October 2000 across the Blue Line.” The report points out that Israel and Lebanon had been offered the opportunity to view the tape, with the identities of non-UN personnel obscured. read more

Audit will size up Brocks carbon footprint

In another green Brock measure, James Federico, technical services officer in Facilities Management, shows off Brock’s new electric service vehicle in front of the Schmon Tower. The vehicle is 1.8 metres high and travels at a top speed of 40 kilometres per hour. It can travel up to 63 kilometres on one charge.Brock has launched a carbon audit of its operations to get the most comprehensive measurement to date of its greenhouse gas emissions.Over the next four months, the Toronto-based carbon management firm HR Carbon will collect energy consumption data and calculate the University’s carbon footprint. A final report is planned for spring 2010.The research project will review activities such as water consumption, paper usage, garbage disposal and recycling, said Professor Richard C. Mitchell, co-chair of the University’s Sustainability Co-ordinating Committee.The audit has taken two years to organize. A cross-section of departments combined to cover the cost of the project, including the dean of the Faculty of Social Sciences, Brock Food Services, Facilities Management, Student Residence Services, Recreation Services and the Brock University Faculty Association.The broad base of sponsors reflects the Brock community’s commitment to environmental responsibility, Mitchell said.“University stakeholders providing for this initiative in such a difficult financial climate show that they understand the importance of sustainability in a very meaningful way.”The audit will lead to new ideas for green initiatives in a Brock community that has long been environmentally proactive, said Tom Saint-Ivany, associate vice-president of Facilities Management and co-chair of the sustainability committee.“It’s up to us to get good knowledge on where we can go and what we can do better,” he said, “whether it’s in facilities management practices or students learning sustainability and societal responsibility.”Brock is committed to a greener world, and pursues that commitment with actions, President Jack Lightstone said.“The Brock community has shown itself to be a full partner in this responsibility, from emphasizing locally grown food to buying hybrid vehicles,” he said. “We continue to shape our strategies and plan our actions in ways that protect the generations of tomorrow through sustainable approaches today.”Sustainability practices at Brock have included eliminating Styrofoam product use by Dining Services; using environmentally friendly tissues and biodegradable takeout containers and packaging; and moving to use of green cleaning solutions. read more

NASA Roscosmos to discuss nuclear powered rocketry

first_img Explore further Russia hopes nuclear ship will fly humans to Mars Citation: NASA, Roscosmos to discuss nuclear powered rocketry (2011, April 6) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2011-04-nasa-roscosmos-discuss-nuclear-powered.html Cooperation between the Russians and the United States in space exploration, is nothing new of course, dating back to the 1970’s and the Apollo-Soyuz missions, and more recently with astronauts from the U.S. and many other nations riding up to the space station on Russian rockets. What is new is the possibility of not just a rocket powered by nuclear energy, but a joint international project based on a technology that causes people from most any country to feel a little fear. The idea of a nuclear powered rocket exploding in the air shortly after takeoff (Challenger) or burning up upon reentry (Columbia) and spreading radioactive material over thousands of miles below is an issue that won’t go away any time soon.This would not be the first time that a spacecraft has employed the use of nuclear power (Soviet Topaz spy satellites, etc.) but it would be the first time an actual nuclear reactor would be installed onto a rocket and sent into space.Perminov, in his announcement, reiterated that Roscosmos has been working on nuclear powered rocket designs for quite some time and is now ready to move forward on developing an actual rocket, though there seems to be some discrepancies regarding the type of engine the agency has in mind. In earlier reports, it seemed the Russians were considering a reactor heat engine, but of late seem to be more of a mind to use the reactor to produce electricity to drive an ion or plasma type engine.The idea of using nuclear power to drive a rocket is not unique to the Russians, NASA and likely other space agencies have been working on their own designs for a nuclear powered rocket, as most in the field agree that chemical based engines just won’t work for long range space exploration. The sheer weight of the fuel along with the huge amount of cargo space required to hold it, prevent any serious thought of very long missions. Nuclear power on the other hand would require far less of both, plus it would require fewer moving parts.At this point, though not stated specifically, it appears the only thing holding back the Russians is the money to pay for their project, with current estimates at or near $600 million; and it’s the likely reason that the Russians are looking to form a consortium. Whether the United States or any of the other invited guests is willing to sign on to such a partnership though, is anyone’s guess. This document is subject to copyright.

The meeting is being held to discuss the possibility of cooperation between the nations in building a nuclear powered rocket.last_img read more

Serving thousands of patients annually, the small institution maximizes its assets (people, technology, etc.) to serve a large number of patients. Wayne Couture, director of imaging and cardiopulmonary services at Androscoggin Valley Hospital, cites the secret to the small hospital’s success is finding ways to optimize care quality while maximizing budgetary resourcefulness.When the time came to transition to DR, AVH conducted comprehensive research on DR vendors as it was important to get the most out of its investments. The hospital decided to remain with Fujifilm, its CR partner since 2004, and upgrade to two Fujifilm FDR D-EVO II detectors. A hybrid partner in CR and DR enabled the techs to use CR as a backup, as their existing Fujifilm FDX Console workstation integrates with both CR and DR.  “I didn’t necessarily have to throw away a capital asset that I purchased back in 2004 and still has some life in it,” said Couture. “The D-EVO II ended up providing a pathway forward, into full digital radiography, without my having to completely close the door on the older CR technology. It has been a perfect solution.”Utilizing the new DR detectors on their console helped Couture’s team quickly learn DR, while avoiding the costs and time associated with installing and learning a new workstation.

Not only did the transition to DR benefit  AVH’s staff, it also improved healthcare outcomes. With the D-EVO II, exams are improved due to less discomfort and decrease in radiation dose. “We have actually reduced radiation by 40 percent compared with CR,” said Couture. “That’s more than I thought we could do.”Along with increased patient comfort, the lighter weight of the D-EVO II detectors and tapered edges have made the exams easier for techs to position under patients. Another time-saving measure for the hospital is the incorporation of Virtual Grid technology, which interprets and corrects the effects of scatter radiation and reduces dose all while completely eliminating the need for cumbersome grids. “We were all blown away by the Virtual Grid feature,” Couture said. “The first time I saw an abdominal X-ray done without a grid, and with Virtual Grid applied, it was for a very large patient. The algorithm gets applied, and you can’t believe how this technology can clean up scatter the way it does. You can read about how this works, but until you see it actually happen — let’s just say, seeing is believing.” Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Walkaround AHRA 2019Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:25Loaded: 11.42%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:25 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

One of the most promising features of DR is the memory that stores images inside of the detector — mobilizing technologists to freely use detectors on demand with a portable or bring it into another room to capture images. When the techs finish X-raying patients, they can upload images at a workstation, without special configuration or any invasive connections to those secondary X-ray systems. On its memory capability, Couture stated, “It instantly became the perfect solution to everything I was trying to achieve. We’re now able to have DR in both our X-ray rooms as well as with our portable radiography. For us, this technology was the solution to many upgrade challenges.” With healthcare institutions incentivized to convert to digital radiography (DR) under the Consolidated Appropriations Act of 2016, many organizations have made the transition from computed radiography (CR) to DR. For the imaging staff at Androscoggin Valley Hospital (AVH), a small, rural 25-bed hospital in Berlin, N.H., it was not the cost-effectiveness, but time and resources that led to the conclusion to adopt digital. The final decision came when their 11-year-old CR system began needing new imaging plates and maintenance. last_img read more

Coffee theft alarms exporters

first_imgBy Isabella Cota Schwarz| Special to The Tico TimesAn unprecedented $3 million dollars worth of high-quality Arabica coffee beans have been stolen in the last year in Costa Rica, the National Coffee Exporters Chamber reported.Exporters here were used to seeing one, maybe two containers (which hold 316 bags of 60 kilograms) stolen each year, but since October 2011, exporters have seen a dramatic increase, reaching a total of 19.Coffee, Costa Rica’s most coveted commodity, is shipped from the Caribbean port of Limón, which is considered to be one of the safest and most reliable in the region.“Even Nicaraguan coffee is shipped from Costa Rica, because shipping it from anywhere else in Central America is considered too risky,” Jorge Gallegos, trade manager at Ceca, said. The company was robbed twice this year.“We’re concerned about Costa Rica’s image as a country that exports premium coffee. You hear about this sort of thing happening in Honduras, for example, but not here.”All the signs point to organized crime, said Eric Thormaehlen, president of the National Coffee Exporters Chamber.“Beginners can’t possibly be stealing our containers in this way; it requires a whole organization to manage the logistics, crew, infrastructure, crane, guns, communication system and drivers,” he said.During robberies, truck drivers transporting containers from growing regions to the port are stopped, held at gunpoint and tied up. The robbers then take the product, store it and send the trucks back to the port with either empty or debris-filled containers.So far, no driver has been seriously injured or killed, Thormaehlen said. Containers full of debris have made it all the way to Portugal and Israel.Although coffee exports account for about $500 million per year, this new problem increases costs and has an impact at all levels of the industry, from the grower to the exporter, said director at the Costa Rica’s coffee institute, ICafé.The organization estimates it would cost exporters an extra $200 per container in security costs if authorities don’t crack down on criminals, while transporting one container to Europe already costs about $3,000.

Ousted Egyptian President Mohammed Morsi sentenced to death

first_img Natural spring cleaning tips and tricks for your home Comments   Share   As is customary in capital punishment cases, Judge Shaaban el-Shami referred his death sentences on Morsi and the others to the nation’s top Muslim cleric for his non-binding opinion. El-Shami set June 2 for the next hearing, and the sentences can be appealed.Morsi already is serving a 20-year sentence for his part in the killing in 2012 of protesters outside a Cairo presidential palace.The military overthrew Morsi in July 2013 following days of mass protests by Egyptians angered by his divisive policies. Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, who had been appointed military chief by Morsi, led his ouster, and was elected nearly a year ago in a vote boycotted by the Islamist opposition.Since his ouster, authorities have cracked down on Islamists and pro-democracy activists who were instrumental in the 2011 uprising. Thousands of Morsi supporters have been jailed and hundreds killed in street clashes over the last two years, including at least 600 in one day, when security forces violently dispersed two pro-Morsi sit-ins in August 2013.After the verdict was read Saturday, a smiling Morsi defiantly waved the four-finger sign associated with the sit-ins.As the government has cracked down on Islamists and other activists, the courts have been far more lenient to Mubarak-era officials. Mubarak himself was acquitted in November of charges linked to the killing of hundreds of protesters in 2011 and has not spent a single day in prison since his arrest in April 2011. The 87-year-old Mubarak was sentenced to three years for corruption on May 9 but was later declared a free man since he had already spent three years in detention, mostly at a Nile-side military hospital in a southern Cairo suburb. Prosecutors have appealed his acquittal over the death of protesters, and a high court will decide next month if he should be retried.Sentenced to death with Morsi on Saturday were 105 defendants, including some 70 Palestinians. The defendants include the Brotherhood’s spiritual leader, Mohammed Badie — who has already been sentenced to death in a separate trial — as well as one of the Arab world’s best known Islamic scholars, the Qatar-based Youssef al-Qaradawi. Most defendants were tried and convicted in absentia, meaning they will receive automatic retrials if they are detained.Supporters of Morsi and his Muslim Brotherhood, now outlawed and branded a terrorist group, chanted “down, down with military rule” as the judge announced the verdict in a converted lecture hall in the national police academy.Prosecutors alleged that armed members of the Palestinian Hamas group entered Egypt during the 18-day uprising through illegal tunnels running under the Gaza-Sinai border. Taking advantage of the turmoil, the militants fought their way into several prisons, releasing Morsi, more than 30 other Muslim Brotherhood leaders and some 20,000 inmates, prosecutors say. Several prison guards were killed and parts of the stormed prisons were damaged. Sponsored Stories Hezbollah and Hamas operatives who had been convicted and sentenced to jail terms over terror-related charges were also sprung out of jail in 2011.In Gaza, Hamas spokesman Sami Abu Zuhri said the sentencing to death of the Palestinians was “regrettable” and “shocking,” adding that “some of those convicted were killed before the Egyptian revolution and others are serving prison terms in Israel.” He said nothing about Morsi’s death sentence.Hamas is the Palestinian chapter of the Muslim Brotherhood and enjoyed close relations with Morsi during his year in office, but has denied taking part in the prison breaks.Amr Darrag, a Cabinet minister under Morsi and a co-founder of the Brotherhood’s Freedom and Justice Party, also blasted Saturday’s verdicts.“Today will be remembered as one of the darkest days in Egypt’s history,” he said.An Islamist opposition alliance led by the Brotherhood meanwhile called on Egyptians to step up the campaign to topple the “gang of treachery and usurpers” in the run-up to July 3, the second anniversary of Morsi’s removal from power.Amnesty International also denounced the verdicts, saying “the death penalty has become the favorite tool for the Egyptian authorities to purge the political opposition.” Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Former Arizona Rep. Don Shooter shows health improvementcenter_img Men’s health affects baby’s health too Top Stories Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said el-Sissi’s government was returning to the “old Egypt” by rolling back democracy. He also criticized the West, saying it had failed to speak out against such death sentences.Morsi escaped a death sentence in a separate case before the same judge related to allegations that he, several of his aides and Brotherhood leaders allegedly passed state secrets to foreign groups, including Hamas and Lebanon’s Hezbollah, during his time in office. A total of 16 senior Brotherhood leaders and aides were sentenced to death in that case, including one woman.A verdict on Morsi’s role will be announced in the June 2 hearing.Copyright © The Associated Press.

CAIRO (AP) — An Egyptian court on Saturday sentenced the country’s first freely elected leader, ousted Islamist President Mohammed Morsi, to death over a mass prison break during the 2011 uprising that eventually brought him to power.The ruling applies to another 120 people, and is the latest in a series of mass death sentences handed down since the military overthrew Morsi nearly two years ago. The sentence will likely further polarize Egypt, a longtime U.S. ally grappling with an Islamist insurgency that has intensified since Morsi’s overthrow. New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies In what appears to be the first violent response to the ruling, suspected Islamic militants gunned down three judges and their driver in the northern Sinai Peninsula city of al-Arish, according to security officials, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to speak to the media.Egypt’s judiciary has come under mounting international criticism since Morsi’s ouster as it has handed down harsh mass sentences to Islamists and jailed secular activists for protesting. At the same time, the courts have acquitted or handed light sentences to top officials who served under President Hosni Mubarak, whose nearly 30-year reign was ended by the 2011 Arab Spring-inspired uprising.“These sentences are yet another manifestation of the deeply troubling way the Egyptian judiciary has been used as a tool to settle political disagreements,” Emad Shahin, a professor at the American University in Cairo who was sentenced to death in absentia wrote in a Facebook post.“Due process, regard for evidence, and minimum standards of justice have been tossed aside in favor of draconian injustice,” wrote Shahin, now a visiting professor at the School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University.

All in a Days Work

first_img August 11, 2017 632 Views Lifetime Achievement Award 2017-08-11 Brianna Gilpin All in a Day’s Work William Glasgow, 2016 Lifetime Achievement Award RecipientA Grammy, an Oscar, a Tony—every industry honors success and accomplishment in its own way, and the mortgage industry is no different. Since 2006, only 14 executives have been selected to receive the Five Star Lifetime Achievement Award, one of the highest honors a mortgage industry professional can receive. On September 19, another prestigious name will join its ranks.Those that have been honored can testify as to the personal impact of receiving such an award. “There is no greater compliment to receive than one from your peers. They understand firsthand the trials and tribulations you face in a career and the feeling of accomplishment when you succeed,” said Anthony T. Meola, Consumer Operations Executive at Bank of America and the 2013 recipient.According to Meola, that’s what the Five Star Lifetime Achievement Award encompasses. To him, it’s somewhat of a humbling experience to know that not only have your accomplishments been recognized, but by those whose opinion you value most highly.Recipients are selected by peers, professionals, and past recipients based on leadership, contributions to the industry, and years of service. It’s one way the industry can give back to those that have given so much to preserving the American Dream.Laurie Maggiano, Servicing and Secondary Markets Program Manager at the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau, recalls receiving her 2011 award during a time when the governments efforts to stem the housing crisis weren’t celebrated, but criticized. “Five Star’s boldness in recognizing the huge impact of the Home Affordable Modification Program on the industry was an incredible validation for me and my team for which I am still grateful,” said Maggiano.On occasion, the Lifetime Achievement Award has produced unintended results upon its recipients. For one in particular, that result was reconsidering retirement. “The award reminded me of all of the challenges this industry still faces and inspired me to extend my career a bit longer and see if I could contribute to meeting those challenges,” said 2016 recipient William Glasgow, SVP and Head of Servicing at HSBC Mortgage. “Aside from the personal gratification I enjoyed by receiving this award, it was an experience that all of my family benefited from as well and will always savor.”The award is about more than just an individual; it is the celebration of success for the entirety of the industry. “I have been blessed to have spent a career in a great industry consisting of many very talented people,” Raymond Barbone, EVP of BankUnited and 2015 recipient said. “I have had the good fortune to work alongside many of them as we have pursued initiatives benefiting consumers, homeownership, and the mortgage industry. I continue to be incredibly thankful and honored that those efforts were recognized through the Lifetime Achievement Award.”Prior to his position as President and CEO of the Five Star Institute*, Ed Delgado was recognized as the 2009 Lifetime Achievement Award recipient, while he was an executive at Wells Fargo.“It is humbling to look across our great industry and know that the work we do can impact the lives of so many. I’m proud of what we achieved at Wells Fargo and during my tenure at Freddie Mac.” Delgado said. “In many ways, this award represented the efforts of my teammates and not my individual accomplishments”.The 2017 recipient will be announced at the Keys for Life Dinner and Concert at the Five Star Conference and Expo, September 18-20 at the Dallas, Texas Hyatt Regency.To view the full list of past Five Star Lifetime Achievement Award recipients, click here.*The parent company of  MReport and DS Newscenter_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, News Sharelast_img read more
