Missing Infant Is Returned to Her Parents King to Pay for

Rabat – The missing toddler whose story mobilized Moroccan social media users was returned to her parents, and King Mohammed VI has offered to pay for her medication.The news of an infant abducted from Abderrahim Harouchi Hospital in Casablanca broke last week and mobilized the masses on social media. The video of her father was posted the same day of the incident, and was widely shared. Shortly after, the authorities published a rough sketch of the suspect, which also went viral.To her parents’ surprise, the toddler was found today in the streets of Casablanca. Janat Zoufir was delivered to her mother in the presence of the governor of Casablanca, Settat Khalid Safir, and Abdellatif Hamouchi, Director General of National Security. The Arabic-speaking news website Hespress reports that the mother was euphoric when she saw her child again, after the long search throughout the entire city of Casablanca.As soon as he heard that the toddler was found, King Mohammed VI gave orders to the medical crew to treat the toddler and provide the psychological support to the parents on his personal expense.A source told Hespress that the services of the Directorate General for National Security had opened a thorough investigation soon after the abduction, which led to the discovery of the toddler today.The same source continued that DNA profiling confirmed that the infant found in the street is the same one that went missing last week. read more

Spotlight on Oklahoma for start of trial for opioid makers

OKLAHOMA CITY — Oklahoma is poised to become the first state to go to trial in a lawsuit against the makers of pharmaceuticals blamed for contributing to the nation’s opioid crisis.Several states have reached settlements with drugmakers. But the trial set to begin Tuesday in Norman against consumer products giant Johnson & Johnson and several of its subsidiaries could bring to light documents and testimony that show what the companies knew, when they knew it and how they responded.The outcome could also shape negotiations on how to resolve the roughly 1,500 opioid lawsuits filed by state, local and tribal governments. Those have been consolidated before a federal judge in Ohio.Oklahoma alleges the defendants helped create a public health crisis in the state by extensively marketing highly addictive opioids in a way that overstated their effectiveness and misrepresented addition risk.The drugmakers deny those claims.Sean Murphy, The Associated Press read more

Top UN official urges young people to use their voices to promote

During the five-day event in Kuala Lumpur, participants took on the role of foreign diplomats and held simulated meetings of UN multilateral bodies, including an emergency Security Council session at this year’s conference, whose theme was “Towards an Alliance of Civilizations: Bridging Cultures to achieve Peace and Development.” The ideas generated at the event will feed into other international forums in the coming months, including those organized by the UN Alliance of Civilizations, set up under UN auspices in 2005 to promote better cross-cultural relations worldwide.At the closing of the latest conference, Kiyo Akasaka, Under-Secretary-General for Communications and Public Information, lauded students for “[debating] ways to diffuse religious and political extremism,” as well as for discussing ways to tackle and prevent conflicts.“In all of this, you have seen that the issues and challenges that nations face today cut across borders, religions and cultures,” he added.“But, most importantly, you have discovered, working together, that finding sustainable and long-term solutions to these complex problems requires persistence, open dialogue and respect for different perspectives.”Mr. Akasaka encouraged the students to continue creating and maintaining networks linking people from across borders on issues affecting young people.“Remember: the United Nations needs your imagination, your ideas, your initiatives and your dynamic energy,” the official said. “I assure you that you will not regret your life-long engagement with the UN.”Last week, the world body launched the International Year of Youth, stressing the need to harness the talents and energy of the world’s young people to promote better understanding and dialogue between different generations, cultures and religions. Dialogue and mutual understanding is the theme of the Year, which kicked off on 12 August, observed annually as International Youth Day. Several hundred Model UN conferences are organized each year at all educational levels from primary school to university. While preparing for the conference, students develop leadership skills and research, writing, public speaking and problem-solving skills that they can use throughout their lives. In addition, participation also encourages consensus building, conflict resolution and cooperation and the enhancement of leadership skills. 18 August 2010The second annual Global Model United Nations conference, bringing together hundreds of students from more than 60 countries, wrapped up in the Malaysian capital today with a call by a senior official from the world body for greater dialogue and understanding. read more

Elephant Mans unmarked grave traced by amateur detective after 130 years

Merrick, whose condition did not develop until he was five, has inspired a number of books, alongside an award-winning play and a film starring John Hurt.His head eventually measured 36 inches, with researchers claiming the deformities were the cause of Proteus syndrome, a rare genetic disorder.The detailed Victorian records make it “99% certain” this is the Elephant Man, said Mrs Vigor-Mungovin, with the burial dated April 24 1890, 13 day after Joseph’s death.She added: “It gives his residence as London Hospital, his age as 28 – Joseph was actually 27 but his date of birth was often given wrong – and the coroner as Wynne Baxter, who we know conducted Joseph’s inquest.”The authorities said a small plaque could be made to mark the spot, which would be lovely.” 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. The unmarked grave of Joseph Merrick – better known as the Elephant Man – has been traced after nearly 130 years, according to his biographer.Merrick had a skeletal and soft tissue deformity which saw him as a medical curiosity, with his skeleton preserved at the Royal London Hospital.But author Jo Vigor-Mungovin claimed she has now discovered Merrick’s soft tissue was buried in the City of London Cemetery after he died in 1890 aged 27.After a miserable adolescence in Leicester and time as a travelling exhibit, Merrick ended up at the former London Hospital in Whitechapel, east London.Mrs Vigor-Mungovin, who has written a biography of Merrick, told the BBC that his soft tissue was buried but had not been followed up due to the number of graveyards in use at the time.She said: “I was asked about this and off-hand I said ‘It probably went to the same place as the Ripper victims’, as they died in the same locality.”Then I went home and really thought about it and started looking at the records of the City of London Cemetery and Crematorium near Epping Forest, where two Ripper victims are buried.”I decided to search in an eight-week window around the time of his death and there, on page two, was Joseph Merrick.” read more

Chinese researchers develop fastcharging aluminiumgraphene battery

first_imgRapid battery charging is essential for efficient use of battery-powered equipment, both underground and on surface. John Chadwick is completing his article on battery power for the February issue – any editorial input to john@im-mining.com.Roskill reports that a team of researchers from China’s Zhejiang University have developed a new type of aluminium-graphene battery “which can achieve full charge in just 1.1 seconds with enough power to run a light bulb for one hour.“The battery retained 91% of its original capacity after 250,000 charge/discharge cycles, and performed stably in temperatures from -40 to 120ºC, according to the team. It can be folded, and does not explode when exposed to fire. The breakthrough was detailed in Science Advances, a US peer-reviewed scientific journal.”Artisan (pictured a 40 t battery truck) is one of the pioneers that will be examined in Chadwick’s article.last_img read more

MGM Melco Shochiku sketch their plans for entertainment potential of Japan IRs

first_imgOkazaki, whose company has received positive reviews for its Kabuki theater performances with MGM in Las Vegas, said, “It is important to merge Japan’s traditional arts, such as Kabuki, with cutting-edge technology to make something dynamic and beautiful.“It also needs to be easy to understand (for both foreigners and modern Japanese). In addition, by utilizing projection mapping and through a partnership with NTT, we have been able to utilize “kirari” – an immersive telepresence technology that delivers an unprecedented realistic experience that can be broadcast across the globe live. We hope to use this to provide an immersive entertainment experience.”Chai ran through the history of MGM’s entertainment in Las Vegas including Cirque de Soleil, the Jabbawockeez, boxing and NHL among other sports events.Noting the company’s Kabuki theater cooperation with Shochiku, she said, “We want to respect Japan’s culture and uniqueness as we bring it to other cultures for them to enjoy.”Melco’s Winckler said there “needs to be a set of rules to create and provide entertainment that dominates the world.”There are, he said, seven rules including “something that the audience can participate with and experience”, “entertainment with a local focus” and “next-generation technology.” In addition, he stressed that, “A Japanese IR should focus on Japan. It doesn’t have to be traditional, but it needs to be tailored to the audience.” Load More Suncity Group looking to develop new resort hotel in Okinawa, Japan after US$10 million land purchase Suncity Group, Bloomberry Resorts unveil Wakayama IR visions Osaka approves Yumeshima site for commercial development in latest IR move The 3rd IR Study Session organized by the Japanese IR Association was held at the first meeting hall of the House of Representatives in Tokyo on Wednesday.

Premier in town to inspect schools and address taxi warlords conflict

Premier in town to inspect schools and address taxi warlords conflict

first_imgWebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite WebsiteWebsiteWebsite Various MECs, along with KZN Premier Willies Mchunu, visited Ladysmith today (October 26) under the auspices of Operation Sukuma Sakhe (OSS).The MECs were deployed to various schools in Ladysmith, where they checked the operating systems and infrastructure at the respective schools, and whether they meet the required standards.Premier Mchunu visited Sidingulwazi Primary School, where he discovered that the school does not have proper infrastructure and the environment that surrounds the school is not up to standard.Operation Sukuma Sakhe is a governmental campaign that started in 2009, in which government implements acceptable living and educational standards.“The toilets at this school are in a terrible condition and no child should be studying under these circumstances. We, as government, cannot look down on schools like these and that is why Operation Sukuma Sakhe was initiated,” said Premier Mchunu.He went on to say that schooling environments play a major role in the success of a student, and that is why an environment conducive to studying must be implemented. After the premier was done at the school, he, along with the district mayor, paid a visit to the Tsakane Hall, where they addressed the community on the water shortage faced by Ladysmith.“We are facing a huge problem, as the uThukela water works plant has been shut down because of the protest in Embizeni, where residents have blocked the road that leads to the water plant,” said uThukela District Mayor Siphiwe Mazibuko.Social issues such as crime and teenage pregnancy were some of the topics discussed, and the community was promised that the government is doing everything they can to sort out each and every problem.Premier Mchunu and uThukela Mayor Mazibuko then went to speak to the people of Embizeni about the protest and the crisis they are facing.In a clash of clans between the Gamede’s and Madlala’s, it was discovered that the Gamede clan had blocked the road leading to the water plant in response to alleged acts of violence carried out by the Madlala clan.Alfred Duma Municipal Mayor Vincent Madlala was nowhere to be seen at any of the  events attended by the premier.DID YOU KNOW?Click on the words highlighted in red to read more on this and related topics.

The 920-page document covers 335 radiopharmaceuticals and radionuclides and 160 companies and institutions active in nuclear medicine.This new edition, written by experts, features 14 new products evaluated and 24 additional companies assessed. Additionally, it presents an overview of the major manufacturing centers and their capacities for producing radionuclides on a country and regional basis; the status of the molybdenum shortage issue from an economic point of view; and comprehensive comparisons of estimated radionuclide and radiopharmaceuticals pricing observed in key regions of the world.Several important changes occurred in the past year that will shape the short term of global nuclear medicine. The strong growth of radiotherapeutics represented 8 percent of the total nuclear medicine market in 2014, versus 4 percent in 2013, driven by the success of Xofigo (Bayer). It is expected that radiotherapeutics will represent over 50 percent of the $24 billion nuclear medicine market in 2030.In radiodiagnostics, the recent developments in gallium-68 make the year 2015 a milestone for the development of this technology, which in the next five years will lead to a completely new positron emission tomography (PET) environment. It seems that the future of radiodiagnostics will entirely be based on technetium-99m for single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) and on fluorine-18/gallium-68 for PET.The conventional pharmaceutical industry has gradually become interested in nuclear medicine with some recent mergers and acquisitions activity: Bayer acquired Algeta; Sun Pharmaceutical Industries acquired Pharmalucence; Otsuka Pharmaceuticals entered into a global licensing and collaboration agreement with NuView Life Sciences; Norgine entered into a partnership with Navidea; and most recently, the pharmaceutical group, Ipsen, acquired OctreoPharm Sciences. In addition, the market saw some major consolidations, with AAA acquiring Atreus and IHS acquiring IBA Molecular North America to merge with their Zevacor.The global market for nuclear medicine reached $4.3 billion in 2014 compared to $4.1 billion in 2013, exhibiting growth of 5 percent. Without the exchange rate effect against the U.S. dollar, the market would have reached $4.5 billion, and thus would have showed growth of 10 percent versus 2013. Presently, the global nuclear medicine market is rather fragmented, with nearly 70 companies selling radiopharmaceuticals on a regular basis. Three companies control almost half of the world market, while 56 firms share 14 percent of the market. Though nuclear medicine is not a recent science, the past years have witnessed the emergence of new radionuclides, and more than 35 companies are involved in research and development but are not yet selling radiopharmaceuticals.New opportunities lie ahead in the nuclear medicine landscape. This potential has been identified not only in the radiodiagnostic area, but most notably in therapeutic radiopharmaceuticals, with the first products scheduled to reach the market before the end of 2020. Opportunities exist for larger groups or investors to finance such development, to merge with key partners and/or to acquire companies.For more information: www.medraysintell.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Interventional Radiology | July 31, 2019 International Multidisciplinary Group Publishes Recommendations for Personalized HCC Treatment With Y90 TheraSphere New consensus recommendations for personalized treatment for hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) with BTG’s TheraSphere have… read more News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 01, 2019 Bracco Imaging Acquires Blue Earth Diagnostics Bracco Imaging S.p.A. has signed a definitive agreement to acquire Blue Earth Diagnostics, a molecular imaging company… read more News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 16, 2019 NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes Completes Construction on Beloit, Wis.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

Going diving in Cyprus Be sure to remember these 4 safety tips

first_imgAre you looking for a way to forget about the stress of your daily life? The last thing you want to do is get overwhelmed by this stress due to the physical and mental problems it can lead to. Getting away to an island destination like Cyprus is a great idea.This island has a number of different activities that you will absolutely love. One of the most popular activities in Cyprus is scuba diving. The crystal clear water that surrounds this island is ideal for scuba diving. If you are new to the world of diving, be sure to contact divein.com to find out more about the excursions they can offer. Before heading off to your first diving experience, here are some of the things you need to remember when trying to stay safe.1. Always Perform a Check of Your EquipmentAs any scuba diving enthusiast will tell you, the first thing you want to do before diving is to check all of your equipment. Usually, the professionals you are going diving with will run you through a checklist of things to look at. Checking things like your scuba mask and the oxygen tank is essential. Neglecting to properly check this equipment may lead to a variety of dangerous situations when you are under the water. You need to find out things before you head off to dive like if the company planning the dive is going to provide things like wetsuits or fins. If they are not, you need to find a local sporting goods store to find the right items. Skimping on the quality of these items to save a few euros is always a bad idea.2. Protect Your SkinMost people fail to realize just how hot it can get in Cyprus. Failing to wear sunscreen can lead to you getting burned while on your diving trip. Being sunburned while on vacation can severely diminish the enjoyment you have. Instead of waiting until the damage to your skin is done, you need to plan ahead. Investing in sunscreen and other similar supplies before embarking on your vacation is a great idea. By doing this, you can reduce the amount of stress and worry you have to deal with while relaxing on the island.3. A Properly Planned Dive is EssentialAnother important thing you will have to do in order to have a safe and successful diving experience in Cyprus is to plan everything out in detail. One of the best ways to avoid the worry that can come with planning out a dive is by working with professionals. They will know the best spots to go and will have the boats needed to get you and your party there. You will save money and have a far better time by hiring professionals to help you out. Before selecting a company to work with, you need to take some time to do your homework. Figuring out how reputable a diving company is and what type of service they are known for is important.4. Be Mindful of Your Air SupplyWhen you are going scuba diving, you need to find out all you can about your air supply and how to monitor it while underwater. Once you have this type of information, you need to pay close attention to the gauge on the air supply. The rule of thumb is you should never go below 50 bar on the air tank. This is referred to as the danger zone and should be avoided at all cost. The most efficient way to make your air supply last longer is by breathing slowing and deeply while underwater. Your scuba instructor will be able to provide you with a variety of tips that can make your diving experience more pleasurable.Taking the time to choosing the right diving company will make this a stress-free experience.You May LikePlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
