Wildfires ravage 27 structures in Telegraph Creek in northwest BC officials

first_imgVANCOUVER – Wildfires have ravaged 27 structures in Telegraph Creek, representing 30 to 45 per cent of buildings in the small northwestern British Columbia community, officials say.Tahltan Band Chief Rick McLean said in a video posted to Facebook on Tuesday that the town has sustained significant damage, but fortunately no lives have been lost.“That’s the town. We are the community. We are resilient, we’re going to lean on each other, and we’re going try to continue to fight the fight as best we can,” he said.They don’t know yet which structures were destroyed, McLean said in the video recorded at a community hall on Tuesday morning and posted to a Facebook group created to distribute information about the wildfires.Rick Boehm, emergency program co-ordinator at the Regional District of Kitimat-Stikine, said two large fires in the Telegraph Creek area likely merged on Tuesday afternoon to create a 150-square kilometre blaze.He and McLean both said 27 structures had been lost to the flames.BC Wildfire Service spokeswoman Heather Rice said the two fires in the area were running parallel and she had not received any information that they’d merged as of Tuesday evening.Some of the impacted structures were merely damaged, rather than destroyed, she added.The entire community of Telegraph Creek remains under an evacuation order. Residents living closer to Dease Lake were told on Tuesday to be prepared to leave at a moment’s notice, said Boehm.Boehm, who is also chief of the Thornhill Fire Department, said heavy smoke has limited air craft in and out of the fire area. Workers are on the ground protecting what they can while equipment operators are clearing the road to allow firefighting equipment to re-enter, he said.A new evacuation order was issued late Tuesday for several properties west of Topley in the Regional District of Bulkley-Nechako.The district said the order covers properties primarily at the south end of Sunset Lake. Residents were asked to register at a reception centre at the College of New Caledonia in Burns Lake. The surrounding areas were also placed under an evacuation alert.More than 460 wildfires are burning across the province. About 50 fires are burning in northwestern B.C., including the 78-square kilometre blaze that prompted the evacuation of Telegraph Creek.“Some very high winds in the area, as well as continued dry conditions have been really challenging the efforts there,” said BC Wildfire Service spokeswoman Kyla Fraser.Nearly 80 firefighters, nine helicopters and 15 pieces of heavy equipment are working on that fire alone, she said.Lightning storms have abated after sparking hundreds of new wildfires in B.C. last week, but Fraser warned a renewed hot spell means no relief for firefighters.Environment Canada issued heat warnings and special weather statements for large parts of B.C. on Tuesday, calling for temperatures up to 40 degrees in some areas by mid-week.Conditions were not due to ease until Friday or Saturday, when the weather office said showers and cooling temperatures were likely.The wildfire service currently lists the fire danger rating as high to extreme across much of the province, with most of northwestern B.C. and the inner south coast, including Vancouver Island, ranked as extremely dry.Campfires have already been banned in many regions, and Haida Gwaii will join the list on Wednesday as will Prince George, Mackenzie and Fort St. James the following day.An out-of-control blaze in a rural area of Vancouver Island, southwest of Nanaimo, prompted the Regional District of Nanaimo to declare a state of local emergency Monday night.The nearly 1.5-square kilometre fire in the Nanaimo Lakes area broke out Sunday and grew aggressively Monday, forcing the evacuation of homes on its west flank and evacuation alerts for 77 properties on the east side.With the evacuations on Vancouver Island, fires of concern are now burning in all six of B.C.’s regional fire centres.In southeastern B.C., a 12-square kilometre blaze in Kootenay National Park has caused sporadic closures of Highway 93 and is being managed by Parks Canada and provincial wildfire staff.Crews were making some progress containing a 120-square kilometre fire that forced evacuation of a wilderness lodge south of Princeton last week and the fire was 40 per cent contained on Tuesday, the wildfire service said.Although the weather was not giving weary firefighters a break, Fraser said crews from outside the province were lending assistance.“We have crews from Alberta, Northwest Territories and Saskatchewan that arrived last week. Last night we saw some firefighters from Mexico, as well as firefighters and support staff from New Zealand arriving,” she said.Teams from Australia were expected to arrive in B.C. on Tuesday.Forests Minister Doug Donaldson plans to speak with the finance minister about the annual wildfire budget and whether it needs to be revised, considering the increased number of wildfires the province has experienced in recent years, a spokeswoman said.The budget for the 2018 wildfire season was $63 million, but $131 million has been spent to date.last_img read more

Rabat –  Moroccan Health Minister Anas Doukkali met, on Sunday, August 18th, with Chinese officials from the National Health Commission. At the meeting, held during the visit of the minister to the University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Shanghai, the minister and the Chinese officials discussed the possibility of creating a Chinese-Moroccan center for traditional medicine in Casablanca in the future.The director of university hospitals in the Chinese National Health Commission mentioned that the potential center would specialize in traditional medicine in its three dimensions: treatment, training, and scientific research.

He also announced a future agreement to implement training sessions in this domain, between the University of Traditional Chinese Medicine in Shanghai and Hassan II University in Casablanca. The meeting was held on the sidelines of the 2nd Chinese-Arab Health Forum, which was organized in Beijing, from August 16th to 18th, and represented an opportunity for Chinese officials, health ministers, and other representatives from different Arab countries to exchange experiences in the domain of health.The project, which is still in the conception phase, would be part of the “Belt and Road Initiative”, a global development strategy adopted by the Chinese government. The initiative aims to develop infrastructure and investments in 152 countries and international organizations. It would also consolidate the friendly, collaborative relationship between Morocco and China. Bilateral relations between the two countries were strengthened after King Mohammed VI’s visit to China in May 2016. read more

Liberals tweak income sprinkling rules as Senate committee says tax changes should

OTTAWA — The federal government released more details Wednesday on changes to its controversial tax proposals in hopes of further addressing deep concerns over reforms that have angered the small-business community.The Liberals are tweaking a proposal that, as of Jan. 1, would tighten existing rules enabling small-business owners to lower their tax burden by distributing earnings among family members who do not make significant contributions to their companies — a practice known as income sprinkling.The changes are among several adjustments the government made to its overall tax-reform package following an onslaught of complaints from doctors, lawyers, accountants, tax experts, farmers, premiers and even some Liberal backbenchers.Critics have denounced the proposals, contending they would hurt the very middle class the Trudeau government claimed to be trying to help.Ottawa’s tax changes threaten to swamp the court, chief justices warn‘We remain very concerned’: Morneau’s tax proposals still need work despite changes, critics insistEarlier Wednesday, the Senate finance committee urged the government to abandon its controversial tax proposals — or at the very least delay their implementation for one year, until 2019.The committee — five Conservatives, five independents and two Independent Liberals — made the demand after studying the potential impacts of the entire package of proposals. Two senators on the committee, both of whom were appointed by Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, declined to support the call for the whole tax plan to be withdrawn.The government insisted that Wednesday’s revisions, this time to the income-sprinkling rules, contain clear tests to determine whether a relative has made a meaningful contribution to — or investment in — the family business.The Finance Department said businesses will have until Dec. 31, 2018, to adjust to the changes, which include new qualification rules for family members — such as substantial capital investments as well as minimums for age and the number of hours worked.On Wednesday, Trudeau said the modified income-sprinkling proposal would only have an impact on three per cent of all small businesses in Canada — and even those affected would still be able to continue sprinkling their income, as long as it’s for legitimate reasons.The Liberals vowed to simplify the income-sprinkling proposal amid concerns about the added complexity of trying to prove the involvement of family members.The government says family members who make meaningful contributions to a company will not be affected by the updated rules. Here are some examples of those who would be exempt:— A business owner’s spouse, as long as the owner meaningfully contributed to the company and is aged 65 and older.— Adults aged 18 and older who have made labour contributions of at least 20 hours per week or about 1,000 hours per year.— Adults aged 25 and older who own at least 10 per cent of a company that earns less that 90 per cent of its income from providing services and is not a professional corporation.Initially, the government expected the change to bring in another $250 million per year to federal coffers, but that’s been revised to $220 million per year by 2022-23.A coalition of industry associations, including a national group representing small- and medium-sized businesses, has criticized Ottawa for waiting until a couple of weeks before the end of the year to provide clarity on the tax changes, which will take effect on Jan. 1, 2018.The political and business-sector backlash over Morneau’s suite of tax proposals, which he released in the middle of the summer, dogged the finance minister for months. Wednesday’s Senate recommendations added to the pressure, but Conservative Sen. Percy Mockler insisted the report was not meant to embarrass the government, nor as a partisan attack.The criticism in recent months has forced Morneau to eventually back away from some elements of the package.In hope of soothing its critics, the government announced in October it would abandon an element of the income-sprinkling proposal that would have limited access to the lifetime capital gains exemption. Morneau said he made the change to avoid unintended negative impacts on the intergenerational transfer of family businesses, like farms.Morneau also announced several other adjustments to the overall plan.He narrowed the scope of his proposal on passive-investment income — what some believe is the most contentious piece of the government’s tax-reform plan — so that only about three per cent of the most wealthy private corporations will have to pay higher taxes.The adjustment to the original proposal will create a threshold of $50,000 on passive income per year. The change followed a flood of complaints that warned cracking down on passive investments could hurt middle-class entrepreneurs who use their companies to save for economic downturns, personal leaves and retirement.Morneau said the goal of the change was to enable small business owners to sock away money inside their corporations for future business-related needs, while still targeting wealthy people who use their corporate structures purely as a way to reduce their taxes.The government will release draft legislation as part of next year’s budget.Morneau also announced he would no longer move forward with a tax proposal related to converting income into capital gains. The proposal raised concerns about negative tax implications, particularly among those in the agricultural community who hope to pass their family businesses to the next generation.After last fall’s outcry, the government also announced it would revive a 2015 campaign promise to cut taxes for small businesses. Trudeau promised to gradually trim the small-business tax rate to nine per cent by 2019, down from its current level of 10.5 per cent. read more

Mechanism on LLRC recommendations GL

The Minister said that the mechanism on implementing the LLRC recommendations accepted by the government will be directed out of the office of the presidential secretariat. Prof. Peiris also briefed members of the House of Representatives Foreign Affairs Committee, including the committee’s Democratic Party ranking member, Rep.

The government, he said, has also established a national database to aid people whose relatives had gone missing during the conflict. The government has developed a mechanism to implement the recommendations of the Lessons Learnt and Reconciliation Commission (LLRC) accepted by the government, External Affairs Minister Prof. G.L. Peiris said.According to the Sri Lankan Embassy in Washington, the Minister said this during a series of meetings he had at Capitol Hill in Washington yesterday (Wednesday) with members of the House of Representatives. read more

Conflict forces thousands to flee in Darfur UN humanitarian office reports

“Humanitarian organizations continue to assess and verify reports of thousands of people forced to flee their homes following clashes between government forces and armed movements in North Darfur state and parts of the Jebel Marra area,” OCHA reported in its weekly humanitarian update on Sudan.“To date, aid organisations have assessed and verified the needs of 41,304 people displaced as a result of this conflict,” according to the bulletin.The number of people in need of assistance and protection may be significantly higher because humanitarian organizations have largely been denied access to parts of Jebel Marra where some of the heaviest fighting is reportedly taking place, a UN spokesperson told reporters at today’s press briefing. “OCHA continues to call on all parties to respect their obligations under international humanitarian law and to facilitate immediate access for humanitarian organizations to people in need,” said Stéphane Dujarric. The UN World Food Programme (WFP), the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the UN refugee agency (UNHCR) and other humanitarian partners are providing food, water, sanitation supplies and emergency household kits to displaced people in Um Baru and northern El Fasher.Meanwhile, UNHCR reported that an estimated 120,800 South Sudanese refugees had sought refuge in Sudan after fighting started in South Sudan mid-December 2013 South Sudan between President Salva Kiir and his former Vice-President, Riek Machar. Over 78,200 of these refugees have received some form of humanitarian assistance, the UN refugee agency reports.Given the increased new arrivals and the establishment of two additional relocation sites in White Nile state, prompt establishment of temporary health services in these new locations is planned, according to UNHCR.The South Sudan crisis has uprooted an estimated 1.9 million people inside their country, including nearly 100,000 who have fled to United Nations bases. read more

UN approves 22 million loan to boost agricultural work to prevent famine

“More than 2.9 million people are at risk of famine and many will predictably die from hunger if we do not act now,” said the UN Emergency Relief Coordinator, Stephen O’Brien, in a news release. As under-secretary-general, Mr. O’Brien heads the UN’s Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), which manages the Central Emergency Response Fund (CERF).“CERF is one of the fastest ways to enable urgent response to people most in need,” he said, explaining that the loan will bridge a crucial gap and allow FAO to immediately save lives and livelihoods of farmers and herders until additional funds from donors are received.This effort is part of the international response to prevent another famine in Somalia five years after the previous one devastated the country. Across Somalia, 6.2 million people will face acute food insecurity through June 2017. Of these, nearly three million people are in Phases 3 (crisis) and 4 (emergency) of the five-phase International Phase Classification for Food Security (IPC), representing more than a two-fold increase from six months ago. Phase 5 is famine. “Livelihoods are people’s best defence against famine and this $22 million loan is critical to FAO’s famine prevention and drought response in Somalia,” said FAO Deputy Director-General for Programmes, Daniel Gustafson. read more

Trampolining craze is leaving children with broken bones health bosses warn

first_img“The audit revealed there is more significant injury from the indoor parks as a result of the kinetic force and gravity associated with those type of trampolines in comparison to the garden ones,” she added.”It is meant to be only one child or adult to each trampoline but I think, because of the greater size of [indoor trampolines] in comparison to garden ones, it is easy for children to bounce onto each other through sheer excitement.” Because of the greater size of [indoor trampolines], it is easy for children to bounce onto each other through sheer excitement.Donna Brailsford A craze for trampolining is leaving children with broken bones, health bosses have warned.NHS staff attended an average of three injuries a day at indoor trampoline parks in England last year, mainly treating broken bones, sprains, and ligament damage after 1,181 call outs, new figures show.The number of injuries, the figures indicate, have shot up as indoor trampoline venues in the UK increased dramatically from just three 2014 to around 200 this year.Pete Brown, from the International Association of Trampoline Parks, told The Daily Telegraph the craze had first come to the UK from America in 2002, and were safe but not a risk free.”A trampoline is a high risk environment [but] well operated trampoline parks have good training practices and are well built, so the risks are at a reasonable level,” he said.But Donna Brailsford, major trauma nurse coordinator at Sheffield Children’s Hospital, told the BBC, which first reported the figures, that the hospital had counted 198 patients with trampoline injuries in the past six months.center_img Ms Brailsford said a higher proportion of those treated for fracture had sustained injuries at trampoline parks in comparison with those who sustained injuries while using garden trampolines.last_img read more

Bomb attack directed at Minister

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A bomb disguised as a gift exploded inside the Greek law enforcement ministry on Thursday night, killing a close ministerial aide in Greece’s highest profile attack in years.Public Order Minister Michalis Chryssohoidis, who was in his office a few metres away from the blast, said the package had been intended for him. Giorgos Vassilakis, 52, head of the minister’s security team, died instantly when the device, thought to have been gift-wrapped as a box of sweets, went off in his hands. Pale and visibly shaken, but otherwise unharmed, Mr Chryssohoidis told reporters he had “lost a valuable and beloved associate.”So strong was the blast that employees in the building thought it had been struck by an earthquake.“The cowardly murderers will be brought to justice,” said Chryssohoidis, who is considered instrumental in dismantling Greece’s notorious November 17 terrorist group in 2002 during his previous tenure as public order minister.“We say one more time that we are not afraid and we will not be terrorized,” Chryssohoidis stressed. “We will continue our struggle to keep our citizens, neighbourhoods, and cities safe.”The Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou expressed his pain and exasperation over the bomb attack.“At a time when our country and our people are waging a daily battle to bring us out of the (financial) crisis, cowardly murderers want to undermine normality and our democracy … and the sacrifices the Greek people are making to set the country on its feet,” Papandreou said in a statement.Security analysts also expressed alarm last night.“This signifies a malicious escalation from violence on public property to public persons that could potentially intimidate other ministers from doing their jobs,” said Aya Burmeila, a senior analyst at the Research Institute for European and American Studies.last_img read more

Les loups du Montana et de lIdaho ne seront bientôt plus protégés

first_imgLes loups du Montana et de l’Idaho ne seront bientôt plus protégésProtégés depuis des années, les loups vivant dans l’Idaho et le Montana, aux Etats-Unis, ne feront bientôt plus partie de la liste des espèces menacées. Une décision que le gouvernement a pris en accord avec les défenseurs de l’environnement.Cet accord a été conclu vendredi dernier entre dix associations de protection de l’environnement et le Service des Etats-Unis pour la Pêche, la Faune et la Flore, rapporte le site Actualités news Environnement. Les autorités fédérales vont ainsi pouvoir lever les protections dont bénéficiaient les loups jusqu’alors considérés comme une espèce menacée. À lire aussiCes 18 animaux méconnus à l’aspect étonnant pourraient disparaître avant vousCe sont 1.300 loups vivant dans l’Idaho et le Montana qui sont concernés par cette décision. Mais les associations de défense de la nature ont obtenu le maintien sur la liste des espèces menacées de 350 autres canidés des Rocheuses, évoluant dans les états du Wyoming, de l’Oregon, de Washington et d’Utah, où l’espèce est encore jugée trop fragile.En 2009 déjà, le gouvernement avait validé une proposition semblable, visant à lever les protections fédérales dans l’Idaho et le Montana, et à autoriser la chasse publique. Mais la décision a été annulée l’année suivante par un juge fédéral saisi par les écologistes. Cette fois encore, même si la plupart des organisations ont accepté le compromis, quelques associations ont décidé de faire appel à la justice pour obtenir l’annulation de cet accord. Les loups des Rocheuses sont protégés depuis les années 1990. Chassés et empoisonnés par les populations locales, les animaux avaient presque disparu de la région. Leur population a, grâce aux mesures de protection, sensiblement augmenté, provoquant la colère des chasseurs et propriétaires de ranch, dont les lobbies sont très puissants dans l’ouest américain.Le 25 mars 2011 à 14:08 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Legislators sing different tune on budget I5 bridge

Joe Zarelli, R-Ridgefield, told the Hilton Vancouver Washington assembly.“There aren’t a lot of options out on the table other what the governor (proposed),” Zarelli said. “I hope legislators realize that, early on.”last_img read more

That was for her late mother, who loved baseball, she said.Then she bounced the ball off her bicep — a little something to get some momentum, she said — and threw a curveball to White Sox pitcher Lucas Giolito.That was a risk, she admitted. But it was worth it.“We need more people to just be themselves,” she said.“So much of social media is trying to be someone different. No, just put yourself out there and be yourself and allow God to do with you what you were created to do.”The sister was an “instant celebrity” at the ballpark, said Kozlowski.The video of her pitch quickly went viral, leading to an appearance on “Are You Smarter than a 5th Grader?” and other celebrity turns for the sister. But her favorite moment came when a mother asked Sobieck to pose for a picture with her daughter at the ballpark.The girl, it turned out, had the same name as Sobieck’s mother.One of Sobieck’s sisters had told her beforehand her mother would be her “angel in the outfield” the night she threw out the first pitch. And there she was, she said.Sister Mary Jo Sobieck at Marian Catholic High School in Chicago Heights, Illinois, where she teaches theology. RNS photo by Emily McFarlan MillerSobieck, 50, grew up in central Minnesota as the youngest of 10 siblings. Her mother had played a huge role in shaping her faith, singlehandedly raising Sobieck and several siblings still at home when her father passed away.She remembers seeing her mother kneeling on the porch, rosary in hand.Sports also were a huge part of her childhood, and she played softball, volleyball and basketball in school.“When I was a kid, my dream was to be a professional athlete or to be in the Olympics. Sports fueled my everything. It was my fire,” she said. “I remember when I felt the calling to religious life, it was like, I didn’t think that I could be passionate about anything more than sports.”Sobieck was teaching at a Minnesota school also affiliated with the Dominican Sisters of Springfield and training for a half marathon when she decided to enter religious life at age 25.“I was getting up in the morning at 5 o’clock and running. It’s like the grass was greener, the sky was blue, every song on my Discman at the time was like a love song from God to me,” she said.She had what she called a profound experience of God’s love when she volunteered to help one of the sisters move from the Minnesota school down to the motherhouse of the Dominican Sisters of Springfield in central Illinois.During that visit to the motherhouse, she saw the sisters there working as a team and realized religious life was something she could do.With so many siblings, she understood teamwork, she said.And it’s one of the things she loves so much about sports.“It shapes character and it inspires greatness and it pulls out your potential to be something more,” she said. “All of that is religious life, too. Your religious life is a team, and we push one another to be strong in virtue and character, and we work together to do something good for the human family.”Twenty-five years later, Sobieck said, she is excited to see how God is using the gifts and interests she believes God gave her and hopes it will be an encouragement to others.“You don’t have to give up your gifts or the things you’re passionate about. God integrates all of our gifts at a time when God wants to do that,” she said.The sister faces some stiff competition at the ESPYS.Other nominees in the “Best Viral Sports Moment” category include UCLA gymnast Katelyn Ohashi’s joyful floor routine that earned her a perfect 10, which Sobieck called “phenomenal.” They also include Texas A&M hurdler Infinite Tucker’s Superman dive across the finish line and 7-year-old runner Rudolph “Blaze” Ingram racing ahead of his peers.“I certainly don’t belong there,” Sobieck said, noting that unlike her fellow nominees, she doesn’t regularly participate in the sport for which she is nominated.“But God is putting me there for a reason.”ESPY winners will be announced July 10 at the ESPN awards show hosted by comedian Tracy Morgan at Microsoft Theater in Los Angeles. The event gathers athletes and celebrities to recognize the year’s greatest achievements in sports.Fans can vote at ESPYS.com to choose the winners of the 2019 ESPYS before the broadcast begins on ABC.

Is It Harder To Distribute Aid in Puerto Rico Than In Other

first_img Share Angel Valentin for NPRCrowley shipping containers with running refrigeration systems are lined up at in the port of San Juan, Puerto Rico. They’ve been there for days, goods locked away inside.As thousands of containers with food and other basic supplies sit undistributed at Puerto Rico’s ports, we asked Houston Community College‘s Professor of Logistics James Battieste whether moving the aid in a devastated island is more complicated than in mainland, and what would be the best course of action.Millions of Puerto Ricans– who are U.S. citizens– are stranded in the island without food, running water, electricity, or fuel, many days after category five Hurricane Maria devastated the territory. The Mayor of  San Juan, Carmen Yulín Cruz, publicly begged for help from Washington. Last week she expressed her gratitude for the relief efforts but also indicated that FEMA ‘s bureaucracy and  other logistics inefficiencies had created a bottleneck in the distribution system. Professor Battieste says that the starting point to assess this kind of situation is: Who is in charge of the management of these emergencies?“In order to answer that question, let examine each of these crises to identify that role, if any.A week prior to the storm in South Texas, Louisiana, and Florida, information was provided by the national weather agencies regarding Harvey’s potential impact, direction, speed, and estimate time of arrival. This information was disseminated to public, private, federal, state, and local government agencies.   As a result, electrical exchanges, medical and local businesses, public utilities developed their emergency response plans. In addition, public transportation, communication networks chemical and telecommunication entities develop emergency plan to address the impact to their industries, such as refinery, electrical exchange, transportation infrastructures, railroads, harbors and airport systems. In the case of South Texas, the role of leading this effort was a combination of private, public and government entities collaboration.Houston Community College’s Logistic Professor James Battieste. Oct. 2nd, 2017Now compare that synergy/effort to Puerto Rico, the Virgin Island and the Caribbean emergency plan, if there was any plan or collaborative effort! What plan or contribution did any Federal agencies contribute to the developing or supporting this crisis? They may have had their individual emergency plans, but as such there was not of a collaborative plan to administer a cohesive coordinated effort that would remediate Puerto Rico, and the Virgin Islands crisis. Let’s define logistics: Logistics is development and implementation of procedures and processes, which control the efficient and effective forward and reverse flow of goods, services and related information between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet customers’ requirements. Humanitarian logistics is the process and systems involved in mobilizing people, resources, skills, and knowledge to help people who have been affected by either a natural or man-made disaster.Logistics affect how well (or how poorly) an entity and its associated partners can achieve goals and objectives. As a result of the lack of a comprehensive emergency plans in place we have the crises confronting Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands.What would be a recommendable system/chain of command in a situation like this? Logistics management utilizes the system approach to business problems. The systems approach acknowledgement that all entities, federal, local agencies, private enterprises, public and corporate partners recognize their mutual interdependency. System approach requires that the goals and objectives of the collaboration will ensure that all human, social, and services are available immediately.FEMA does not manage emergencies. FEMA’s mission is to support our citizens and first responders to ensure that as a nation we work together to build, sustain and improve our capability to prepare for, protect against, respond to, recover from and mitigate all hazards. FEMA roles is in conjunction or in collaboration with private enterprises, public entities, federal, state and local government agencies in addressing crises such as what happen in Puerto Rico, Florida and Texas storms and flooding.”To the question of whether helping an island or group of islands make logistics more complicated, Battieste’s answer is: “No.”“The recommended entity to lead Puerto Rico and the Virgin Island relief campaign would be the National Guard. The National Guard is comprised of citizen soldiers with various business expertise and skills. Their command center operation possess the communication and administrative capacity required to provide appropriate assessments and responses in order to coordinate all plans. Support, such as trucks, gas storage units, helicopters, boats, medical services, construction and communication system, and material handling expertise is available through their units.”last_img read more

Image courtesy of Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center. July 8, 2014 — NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes LLC has signed a pledge with the Preparatory Commission for the Comprehensive Nuclear-Test-Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO), designed to help the CTBTO detect nuclear testing.In signing the Radioxenon Emissions Pledge, NorthStar stated that its production of the medical radioisotope molybdenum-99 (Mo-99) does not result in the emission of radioxenon, a radioactive noble gas. Based in Madison, Wis., NorthStar is one of only six producers of medical radioisotopes to have signed the pledge.Radioxenon is one of the products measured by the CTBTO in its effort to detect nuclear testing. It also, however, may be emitted during the peaceful production of radioisotopes used in medical diagnostic imaging. Readings from both events look similar, making it more difficult for the CTBTO to identify potentially dangerous activities.Mo-99 is the parent isotope of technetium-99m (Tc-99m), the most widely used radioisotope in medical diagnostic imaging. Currently, nearly all Mo-99 is generated using highly enriched uranium (HEU) and a fission-based process. NorthStar is pursuing two non-uranium- and non-fission-based, production processes that would help establish a reliable domestic source of Mo-99. Neither process results in the emission of radioxenon and both generate only a benign waste stream.“The CTBTO’s work in minimizing radioxenon gas emissions is extremely important to the world community,” said NorthStar president and CEO George P. Messina. “We are pleased that our technology will help the world’s nuclear test-ban monitors focus on detecting nuclear explosions. Signing this CTBTO pledge is consistent with our effort to minimize our waste footprint by virtue of our unique, non-uranium, non-fission processes which produce no real waste by-products of consequence.”“I welcome the pledge of NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes,” CTBTO executive secretary Lassina Zerbo said. “NorthStar is the sixth producer to cooperate with the CTBTO in our efforts to reduce the effects of radioactive releases on the detection of nuclear tests. The CTBTO will remain engaged with all medical isotope producers to mitigate xenon emissions for test-ban verification.”For more information: www.northstarnm.com, www.ctbto.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Figure 1. A high-fidelity 3-D tractography of the left ventricle heart muscle fibers of a mouse from Amsterdam Ph.D. researcher Gustav Strijkers.

and Samsung At an event in Seattle CEO Jeff Bezos unveiled the Fire Phone a smartphone with a 47-in 3-D display a 22-GHz quadcore processor a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and 2 GB of RAM The device which has a heavy focus on multimedia will offer unlimited photo storage and a dedicated button to launch the camera app It will be sold exclusively on AT&T’s network at a price of $199 for a 32-GB version with a two-year contract or $299 for a 64-GB version Amazon is also throwing in a free year of Amazon Prime its customer-loyalty program (existing Prime members will get a bonus year tacked onto their current subscription) The device is currently available for preorder on Amazon’s website and will begin shipping on July 25 The new phone is designed to be tightly integrated with Amazons myriad services The company’s Instant Video service will be preinstalled on the device as will Amazon’s newly launched music-streaming service The phone will also come with a new program called Firefly which allows people to scan objects songs and TV shows (sort of like an all-purpose Shazam app) so that Amazon can identify them and offer a way to purchase them from its store In total Firefly can recognize 100 million items Bezos said "Fire Phone puts everything you love about Amazon in the palm of your hand” he said in a press release The phone’s 3-D capabilities are its most unique feature Through a technology dubbed Dynamic Perspective the Fire Phone uses four cameras placed on its front face to track a person’s head movements at all times This allows the phone to offer a real-time 3-D-like display that presents more depth to images than a typical smartphone screen During the event Bezos demonstrated the phone’s map app which showed looming skyscrapers leaping off the screen as well as an app that allowed the user to sort through dresses as if they were in an actual 3-D space The phone’s motion sensors allow users to scroll within certain apps by tilting the device rather than touching the screen Like the Kindle the Fire Phone will run on a modified version of Android and support some apps native to Google’s operating system Popular apps such as Instagram Facebook Netflix ESPN and HBO Go should be available for the device when it launches Amazon has also released development tools to allow companies to make apps that make use of Dynamic Perspective and Firefly The device demonstrates Amazons growing interest in creating hardware In addition to its popular line of Kindle e-readers and tablets the company released its first set-top box the Amazon Fire TV earlier this year The company has always been reticent to disclose just how successful its hardware ventures are Bezos said today that there are “tens of millions” of Kindle owners and there’s no real data on Fire TV sales but smartphone sales dwarf those other segments More than a billion smartphones were shipped globally in 2013 with Samsung and Apple controlling nearly half the market between them Amazon will face an uphill battle taking on those two giants but the company has a history of eschewing profits to smother competitors in other markets They may be embarking on a similar strategy today the 32-GB version of the Fire Phone for instance will sell for $100 less than a similar model of the iPhone 5S Write to Victor Luckerson at victor_luckerson@timeinccomLucy Liu is a new
