firstname.lastname@example.org files from Brittany Hobson “Baby H” was apprehended on a so-called birth alert 90 minutes after she was born. B.C. says the practice will stop immediately.Melissa RidgenAPTN NewsBritish Columbia announced Monday that effective immediately, it’s ending the controversial practice of putting birth alerts on expectant mothers, which flags a disproportionate number of Indigenous mothers and infants for child welfare agencies.In its Calls for Justice that came out in June, the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Women and Girls called on all provincial and territorial governments to end the practice, which often leads to babies being take hours or days after they’re born and sometimes without good reason.“We know that birth alerts have been primarily issued for marginalized women and, disproportionately, Indigenous women,” said Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) Minister Katrine Conroy in a statement.“We acknowledge the trauma women experience when they become aware that a birth alert has been issued,” said the statement.Jennifer Charlesworth, the representative for children and youth in B.C., said the move – a first in Canada – will have positive effects.“We want to create a situation in which families are seeking help or accepting help and it’s more in a voluntary, trust-based relational way,” Charlesworth said. “When you use birth alerts, that triggers a system response, it creates fear and trepidation.“So even if families are struggling and needing help they might not ask for it because they’re concerned child welfare intervention is going to happen.”For years, agencies would flag an expectant mother when they felt her baby might be unsafe.In some provinces, a mother who was in the child welfare system herself was enough of a reason reason to be flagged.That information is attached to the mom’s health file and when she gives birth, child welfare officials are notified and show up at the hospital.“A birth alert could be in place and it doesn’t automatically mean the child would be removed but it does create a series of interactions and they may not be particularly helpful,” Charlesworth said. “They’ve been particularly damaging to Indigenous families.“What we don’t want to do is further traumatize those families what we want to do is step in and be in a relationship to support them to ensure safety and good safety planning.”But a B.C. man doubts it’ll help infants already seized by the government, like his granddaughter.APTN News reported in June, about a newborn apprehended after medical staff at a Kamloops hospital told MCFD workers that the first-time mom in her 30s was neglecting her baby 90 minutes after having a c-section.Read More: B.C. CFS moves in to seize 90 minute old baby on report of neglectAPTN can’t name the grandfather or the parents because the infant, dubbed Baby H, remains in care.She’s been in five different foster homes in her three months of life.The parents say they’ve been offered no reason why they can’t have their baby home with them without MCFD’s intervention, other than that the ministry ‘has concerns.”They’re currently allowed supervised visits with their daughter but the grandfather says there’s no progress being made on having the child returned home.APTN asked MCFD how an end to birth alerts will affect babies who have already been taken on such an alert. Ministry staff said they’d find out but didn’t respond by deadline at the end of the day.Baby H’s grandfather foresees some good coming from Monday’s announcement.“In general it is a good thing. Women won’t have so much fear of giving birth in hospitals,” he told APTN Tuesday.“There has been rising concerns about that for some time, especially with First Nations that they weren’t safe unless they had a large number of supporters to keep their children safe.”He credits families and advocates speaking out against the system, for B.C.’s change.“I don’t think (MCFD) would have made these changes if we had just sat back and allowed their bullying tactics to continue,” the granddad said.“They are used to dealing with people who are unable to stand up, for whatever reason, to their bullying, threats and intimidation.”Meanwhile, after the national inquiry demanded an end to birth alerts, Saskatchewan doubled down, saying the practice would continue.In Manitoba – which has the highest rate of children in care at 11,000 – the government has spent a year sitting on a review they ordered which also called for an end to birth alerts.Manitoba seizes on average, a newborn a day from hospitals via birth alerts.The Manitoba government said in a statement it continues to review the use of birth alerts and has already made changes with the goal to reduce the number of children apprehended at birth.“We are shifting our focus toward better supports for expectant mothers, including early interventions, reunification and better planning to provide supports. This can reduce the need to take a child into care, except when these interventions have failed,” read the statement.The Restoring the Sacred Bond project will use doulas to support the needs of at-risk Indigenous mothers, in partnership with Southern First Nations Network of Care and is set to start work this fall.“Mothers will then be connected to doulas, who will be a birth helper and provide support through a traditional cultural lens that the mother can learn and incorporate into her approach to parenting.”

Goodman And Corey Williams, The Associated Press Posted Sep 9, 2014 5:39 pm MDT DETROIT – Detroit has reached a tentative deal to pay a key creditor 26 cents on the dollar and offer it valuable leases, a move that that could clear the biggest hurdle in the city’s plan to reduce its debts and emerge from bankruptcy protection.A joint court filing Tuesday evening said Detroit and the bond insurer Syncora Guarantee “have reached an agreement in principle” to settle the company’s $400 million claim in the nation’s largest-ever municipal bankruptcy case.Syncora spokesman Steven Schlein told The Associated Press the company would get 26 per cent of what it’s owed. Detroit also would extend Syncora’s lease on the Detroit-Windsor Tunnel by 20 years, to 2040, and give the company a 30-year lease on the Grand Circus Park parking garage, Syncora said.The two sides said they need two days to complete the deal and ask Judge Steven Rhodes for a postponement of the bankruptcy case trial until Friday.“If this agreement is finalized within this time period as we expect, it will profoundly alter the course of the proceeding and the litigation plan of the remaining parties,” the filing said.Syncora attorney James Sprayregen told the AP that the postponement request was “so that we can work through certain contingencies contained in the deal, including obtaining full resolution with Bank of America, UBS and other stakeholders.”“We are hopeful the deal will be finalized in the next 48 hours,” Sprayregen said.In response to a question from the judge last week, another Syncora lawyer had told the judge that he thought Detroit could afford to pay 75 cents on the dollar.Syncora Guarantee and fellow bond insurer Financial Guaranty Insurance Co. have been leading a small group of creditors fighting the plan by state-appointed emergency manager Kevyn Orr.Orr sent the City Council a request Tuesday to approve the deal, according to a copy that Syncora gave the AP. Reflecting the legal limits on the council’s power, Orr said it would have a week to present an alternate plan to raise an equivalent amount of money, and an emergency oversight board would make the final decision.A message seeking comment was left for Orr spokesman Bill Nowling on Tuesday night.Most creditors, including about 30,000 retirees and city employees, have endorsed Detroit’s plan to cut $12 billion in unsecured debt to about $5 billion.Syncora has strongly opposed the terms, saying that Detroit’s blueprint unfairly discriminated against financial creditors. Syncora and some other creditors have pushed for the city to look into the sale of assets, including city-owned pieces in the Detroit Institute of Arts.The threat to artwork prompted the creation of the so-called Grand Bargain — commitments from the state, major corporations, foundations and others to donate more than $800 million over 20 years meant to soften cuts to city pensions while placing pieces in the DIA into a trust and out of the reach of debtor demands.Pensioners this summer voted in favour of Orr’s plan, which calls for general retirees to take a 4.5 per cent pension cut and lose annual inflation adjustments. Retired police officers and firefighters would lose a portion of their annual cost-of-living raise.For decades, Detroit paid its bills by borrowing money while struggling to provide the most basic of services for residents. The city, once fueled by the massive auto industry it gave birth to, shrank from 1.8 million people six decades ago to fewer than 700,000 now.The trial that began Sept. 2 is to help Rhodes determine whether to approve, modify or reject the city’s financial reorganization plan.___Follow David N.

In a statement to the press, the Council condemned the attack, which occurred on 1 September and expressed their deep sympathy and condolences to the families of the victims, as well as to the people and Government of Uganda. The Council also wished a speedy recovery to those injured.In addition, the members of the Council underlined their gratitude to AMISOM and its troop-contributing countries for their bravery and sacrifices in the fight against Al Shabaab.Reaffirming that terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security, the Council underlined the need to bring perpetrators, organizers, financiers and sponsors of these reprehensible acts of terrorism to justice.The 15-member body also urged all States, in accordance with their obligations under international law, and relevant Security Council resolutions, to cooperate actively with the Somali authorities in this regard.“The members of the Security Council underlined that neither this, nor any other act of terrorism, would weaken their commitment to supporting the peace and reconciliation process in Somalia,” the statement concluded.

Anémie : une nouvelle thérapie géniqueMonde – Le professeur Philippe Leboulch vient d’annoncer les résultats positifs d’une étude qu’il dirige sur les thérapies géniques.C’est une grande première dans la lutte contre l’anémie : un patient a été guéri grâce à une thérapie génique. Un jeune Français de 21 ans, atteint de thalassémie, s’est vu inoculer un gêne correcteur à l’âge de 18 ans par le biais de cellules souches de la moelle osseuse. Depuis deux ans, il n’a plus besoin de transfusion sanguine et peut mener une existence normale.C’est la première fois qu’une expérience de ce type est menée, et les résultats concluants vont certainement permettre de la continuer. Dix patients devraient bénéficier de cette nouvelle thérapie génique et le professeur Leboulch espère étendre son expérimentation à l’Asie du sud-est, où de nombreux enfants souffrent de thalassémie. Pour cela, le chercheur espère réunir des fonds grâce au Téléthon.Le 17 septembre 2010 à 08:46 • Emmanuel Perrin

Juventus captain Giorgio Chiellini believes Cristiano Ronaldo can make his “dream” of winning the Champions League come true after coming so close in recent seasonsSince their penalty shoot-out win over Ajax in the 1996 final, Juventus haven’t managed to win the competition since then after five defeats in the final.One of those came in 2017, where Ronaldo scored a brace to help Real Madrid cruise to a 4-1 win over Juventus at the Millennium Stadium in Cardiff.But, upon the five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s €112m arrival at Turin in July, 34-year-old Chiellini’s hopes of winning the Champions League for the first time have never been stronger.“Cristiano scored many, many, many times against us and he broke my dreams many times – in Cardiff, in Madrid, in Turin,” Chiellini told BBC.“Before, the Champions League was a dream. Now it is a target because Cristiano is the best player in the world and we need him to make the last step.“It’s the personality of Cristiano. He has fantastic skills in the field but out of the field, his attitude – how he works, how he prepares for the match, how he lives every day of his life – can help us. The team has changed.”Lukaku backed to beat Ronaldo in Serie A scoring charts Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Former Inter Milan star Andy van der Meyde is confident Romelu Lukaku will outscore Cristiano Ronaldo in this season’s Serie A.Despite being a proven veteran performer, Chiellini admitted that even he’s been learning from Ronaldo and revealed how he reacted when he first learnt of the Portuguese’s move to Juventus.He added: “I was curious to see some particular attitude far from the field,” he said.“His work in the gym, and his concentration, is something I try to take. He’s helped me because I would like every day to improve myself.”On Ronaldo’s move, Chiellini said: “I didn’t believe it at the beginning.“But after some days of rumours I talked with [Juventus president] Andrea [Agnelli] and I was surprised. I think that for many fans and also the players it was not so normal.”Juventus will meet Atletico Madrid in the last-16 of the Champions League with the first leg to take place on February 20 at the Wanda Metropolitano in Spain.

Liverpool midfielder Xherdan Shaqiri insists he’s expecting a fierce battle when the club travel to the Etihad Stadium to face Manchester City on Thursday.Pep Guardiola’s men are one of only three teams to have stopped the Reds from winning in the league this season, and could even have taken all three points when they visited Anfield earlier in the season, with Riyad Mahrez missing a late penalty.The Premier League champions won 5-0 when both sides met at the Etihad in the league last season, but Liverpool won both fixtures when they faced off in the UEFA Champions League in April.“For us we don’t go there to take Man City out of the race, we go there for a Premier League game,” Shaqiri told reporters, as quoted by Goal.Virgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“We go there to make a good performance first of all and try to win games.

A backhoe struck a natural gas line Tuesday afternoon at a construction site in Camas, requiring people nearby to shelter in place. Around 12:30 p.m., the Camas-Washougal Fire Department was sent to a report of a broken natural gas line in the area of Northwest Howard Street and Northwest 47th Drive near Lacamas Lake. The backhoe had hit a 2-inch natural gas line that was venting pressurized gas, according to Chief Nick Swinhart. Firefighters called for immediate assistance from Northwest Natural Gas, and advised neighbors to keep all windows and doors closed. One nearby family evacuated their house after smelling the strong odor, Swinhart said. Northwest Natural Gas arrived within about 30 minutes and repaired the line.
Almost half (49%) of employer respondents are concerned about the impact of Brexit on total reward, according to research by Willis Towers Watson.Its survey of 196 organisations, conducted in July 2016, also found that 49% of respondents are concerned about how Brexit will affect employee engagement and communication.The research also found that:51% of respondents cite organisational change as a concern following the UK’s decision to leave the European Union (EU).76% of respondents are concerned about how Brexit will affect their workforce.47% of respondents are looking at the HR implications of Brexit, such as business disruptions or delays to corporate transactions.56% of respondents plan to ‘wait and see’ before they take any action to prepare their organisation for Brexit.66% of respondents believe their business in the UK will be significantly affected by Brexit.78% of respondents have started a broad consideration of the implications of Brexit, 33% of respondents have undertaken scenario planning, and 60% have assessed what Brexit could mean for key areas of their business.Richard Veal, director of talent and rewards practice Great Britain at Willis Towers Watson, said: “The results show that UK business is concerned about the effects of Brexit, but uncertainty appears to be hindering many [organisations] taking immediate action. It is important that [organisations] think about what the next steps should be and get into a more action-oriented state of mind.“The data implies that many businesses are not assessing the effect Brexit will have on their business structure. This is particularly noticeable in the HR space where the research shows less than half of businesses are creating a specific HR Brexit team, suggesting that HR may be lagging behind other business areas in terms of readiness.”
Executive director of the UN World Food Programme David Beasley speaks to local authorities during a visit to Havana, Cuba, 16 September, 2017. Photo: ReutersThe World Food Program (WFP) appealed on Sunday for 75 million dollars in emergency aid over the next six months to help alleviate the suffering of Rohingya Muslims fleeing violence in Myanmar.Since 25 August, hundreds of thousands of Rohingya Muslims have fled their homes in majority Buddhist Myanmar, overwhelming aid agencies in neighbouring Bangladesh.”The bottom line? This is a deplorable situation. This is as bad as it gets. We need 75 million for the next six months,” David Beasley, WFP executive director, told reporters after visiting refugee camps in Bangladesh near the Myanmar border.”I say we can end world hunger with a few billion dollars. I tell donors, if you can’t give us the money, stop the wars,” added Beasley, whose UN agency is the main humanitarian organisation battling hunger worldwide.The United Nations is currently seeking 200 million dollars from donors to help tackle the crisis among the Rohingya Muslims.
Share The Brazoria County Sheriff’s Office said a piece of jewelry that once belonged to famed Houstonian Ima Hogg has gone missing.The pearl and diamond brooch was on display at the Varner Hogg Plantation state historic site and was taken sometime between Wednesday, July 18, at 7 p.m. and this morning, July 19.The brooch has significant historic value and is partially constructed from black carbon that came from the famous Spindletop oil gusher in Beaumont.Ima Hogg was former Texas Governor Varner Hogg’s daughter and an avid art collector. She donated hundreds of works to the Houston Museum of Fine Arts, including her furnishings and former home Bayou Bend.
The causes of congenital face blindness can be traced back to an early stage in the perceptual process, new findings reveal.People with congenital prosopagnosia, or face blindness, are unable to use facial features to identify the person in front of them. Until now, the cause of facial blindness was assumed to be associated with the later stages of the perceptual process. These are the stages involved in converting facial information into abstract code for long-term storage. “We were able to show that even the earliest face-selective responses, those recorded approximately 170 milliseconds after seeing a face, are altered in people with congenital prosopagnosia,” said lead researcher Andreas Luschow from Charite hospital in Berlin. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“We were also able to show that these changes are closely linked to their deficit in recognizing faces,” he added. Results showed that even life-long contact with other people does not enable affected persons to compensate for this face recognition deficit.This would suggest that the underlying neural mechanisms are divided into distinct, closed units, making it impossible for other areas of the brain to take over their function. A better understanding of cognitive processes is not only important in the field of medicine, but also in other areas of research. The findings were published in the journal PLOS ONE.

Beaumont Hospital, Mater Misericordiae University Hospital, Sligo General Hospital and Waterford Regional Hospital are among the first to roll out McKesson’s Horizon Medical Imaging picture archiving communications system (PACS) and radiology imaging system (RIS) as part of HSE’s National Integrated Medical Imaging System (NIMIS) initiative.NIMIS is the world’s largest integrated medical imaging project designed to move Ireland to advanced digital technology. Using McKesson’s solutions will help ensure that all 3.5 million radiology studies performed each year in Ireland are available to clinicians at any time and in all locations for greater efficiency, safety and more accountable patient care. When NIMIS is complete, Ireland will have one of the most advanced and integrated radiology IT infrastructures in the world.“PACS and radiology information systems (RIS) are at the heart of the modern radiology department,” said Niall Sheehy, M.D., lead radiologist for NIMIS. “NIMIS will bring PACS/RIS to all public hospitals in Ireland and enable electronic image-sharing between them.”Not only have the hospitals already experienced a significant reduction in radiology report turnaround times — from up to two weeks to 30 minutes — but the project also is the foundation for a national image archive.Like many countries, Ireland had already begun the steps toward automation. In fact, one quarter of Irish hospitals have a PACS system where images are captured, stored and examined. However, without a centralized architecture, all existing PACS in Ireland acted in isolation with no sharing of images or patient data between facilities. Patients transferred or sent for second opinions required film packets or images stored on CD.With McKesson’s Horizon Medical Imaging, a single solution is being deployed across the country to link all public hospitals and standardize care through a central database that will serve asa national image archive. As a result, when patients are examined at any public hospital or outpatient clinic in Ireland, their entire imaging history will be immediately available to the clinical team, minimizing errors and accelerating decision-making.McKesson also is implementing 3-D and advanced visualization, research tools and electrocardiography for cardiology that integrate with Horizon Medical Imaging. In addition, a voice recognition system will permit immediate digital dictation, transcription and distribution of radiologists’ reports.“With McKesson and representative hospitals from across Ireland, we invested the time upfront to create a central design methodology that standardized our implementation process,” said Neil O’Hare, professor and HSE NIMIS project lead. “This methodology helped to ensure success at each of our go-lives and allowed us to deploy the multiple sites in a short period of time.”In addition to technology, McKesson offers a wide range of industry-leading services designed to help radiologists maximize the value of their image management solutions. For example, its storage service provides full disaster recovery with archiving in a single solution, helping providers eliminate expenses associated with storage, administration costs and hardware obsolescence.“Imaging deployments can be complex and costly, but that isn’t the case with McKesson,” added O’Hare. “With McKesson, we get a digital imaging solution that is not just for radiology but includes specialties such as cardiology, vascular surgery, obstetrics and mammography.”McKesson will roll out Horizon Medical Imaging at the remaining hospitals over the next twenty months. Five hospitals in the Northeast region will round out the first phase of implementations. The second phase will include Our Lady’s Hospital for Sick Children in Crumlin, Naas General Hospital and St. Luke’s Hospital in Dublin.For more information: www.mckesson.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | December 15, 2011 Irish Government Turns to McKesson to Revolutionize Medical Imaging Delivery across the Country News | PACS | July 02, 2019 Laurel Bridge and 3M M*Modal Partner to Improve DICOM Structured Reporting July 2, 2019 — Laurel Bridge Software announced an expanded relationship with 3M M*Modal, a provider of clinical docu read more Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more News | PACS | August 08, 2019 NetDirector Launches Cloud-based PDF to DICOM Conversion Service NetDirector, a cloud-based data exchange and integration platform, has diversified their radiology automation options… read more Feature | Information Technology | June 27, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr Smart Algorithm Extracts Data from Radiology Reports Radiology reports may contain information essential to figuring out a patient’s condition. read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more

Osi Prince, who played Roseanne’s son D.” However, The problem with wood is a component in its cell walls known as lignin which confers rigidity Engineers must first remove the lignin to get to the sugar-rich cellulose in plants which they ferment into alcohol-based fuel Researchers have been looking for ways to reduce the amount of lignin in trees and plants without harming their ability to grow It’s no easy task Lignin isn’t like other long-chain biological molecules DNA and RNA for example are copied directly from molecular templates Lignin’s structure by contrast is more haphazard Plants generate a series of molecular building blocks called monomers that are sent to cellular reaction chambers Here the monomers link together in branching chains But the exact structure depends on the concentration of the individual monomers which varies slightly in different plant species Ultimately the branching lignin wraps around the sugar-rich cellulose fibers that make up the bulk of the plant strengthening the cell walls and supporting the tubelike vessels that transport food and water up the stem For the last decade plant biochemists have thought they knew all there was to know about the steps involved in synthesizing lignin For example they thought that in one key process a single enzyme carried out two different jobs But when tests failed to lend conclusive support Wout Boerjan a molecular geneticist at Ghent University in Belgium suspected there was more to the story So Boerjan and his colleagues ran genetic screens of the genes expressed in Arabidopsis thaliana a small plant commonly studied in biological laboratories When the researchers determined which genes were active in plants that were making lignin they noticed one that hadn’t been identified as central to lignin biosynthesis a gene for an enzyme called caffeoyl shikimate esterase (CSE) They then engineered Arabidopsis plants so they didn’t have the CSE gene As the researchers report online today in Science the plants still grew But they contained 36% less lignin and were about a third smaller than their unaltered counterparts They also didn’t droop or fall over though some of their vessels for transporting food and water collapsed Still when the shorter plants were dried cut up and processed they yielded four times the amount of sugar-rich cellulose as did the unaltered plants What’s more they gave up this extra cellulose without the expensive high-temperature processing usually required to remove the lignin prior to fermenting biofuels “That’s an extremely valuable observation” says Clint Chapple a biochemist at Purdue University in West Lafayette Indiana The work provides hope that if the same gene-removal technique works in poplar trees and other biofuel crops it could significantly decrease the cost of making fuel he says That in turn could obviate the need for making biofuels from corn sugar and other food crops and thereby reduce the need for using prime agricultural land to grow biofuels Because lignin removal is also required when making paper and a variety of chemicals from plants the new technique could reduce the costs of these processes as well Boerjan says Boerjan also suggests that lignin-modified trees and plants may be engineered to grow as well as their unmodified cousins When lignin is reduced in the vessels that transport food and water plants tend to be stunted or not grow at all But other researchers have previously shown that it’s possible to engineer plants so that lignin remains high in the vessels but is reduced in plant cell walls allowing these plants to grow just as tall as their unaltered cousins By using genetic engineering to restore the plant’s vessel lignin Boerjan thinks researchers may be able to produce plants that appear just as tall and vibrant as their unaltered cousins but that are far easier and cheaper to convert to biofuels paper and chemicals If so that would give the burgeoning bio-based economy which is struggling to replace petroleum derived products with versions made from renewables much needed support Ness they’ll let them sneak out and get them out of there as quick as they can
