Denmark stunned as US President scraps visit over Greenland snub

first_imgCopenhagen: Denmark was left stunned Wednesday by Donald Trump’s decision to postpone a state visit after the government told the US president its autonomous territory Greenland was not for sale. The Danish Royal House expressed “surprise” at Trump’s cancellation while commentators accused Trump of acting like a “colonial overlord”. “Based on Prime Minister Mette Frederiksen’s comments, that she would have no interest in discussing the purchase of Greenland, I will be postponing our meeting scheduled in two weeks for another time,” Trump tweeted on Tuesday.

The decision confirms just how interested he was in purchasing Greenland, an idea initially dismissed as a joke by some, but which the White House later insisted had a serious purpose because of its strategic location.

Prime Minister Frederiksen was due to hold a press conference at 1300 GMT on Wednesday. The postponement has sparked strong reactions in Denmark. “Reality transcends imagination… this man is unpredictable,” said Morten Ostergaard of the Social Liberal Party, which is part of the ruling coalition. “For no reason, Trump assumes that (an autonomous) part of our country is for sale. Then insultingly cancels visit that everybody was preparing for,” tweeted Rasmus Jarlov, a member of the opposition Conservative Party. “Are parts of the US for sale? Alaska? Please show more respect.” Marc Jacobsen, a Greenland specialist at the University of Copenhagen, said Trump was acting like “an ignorant colonial overlord”. “Trump’s idea of purchasing Greenland is absurd, and it is absurd that he is now cancelling his state visit to Denmark when he knows that there is no chance Greenland will become the 51st state of America,” he told AFP. Meanwhile, former US ambassador to Denmark Rufus Gifford wrote on Twitter: “He asks for an invitation from a great friend and ally. The Queen obliges invites him for a state visit. He declares the visit contingent on the great friend selling part of its territory to him This. Is. Not. Normal.” Nonetheless, conservative daily Jyllands-Posten wrote that Trump’s actions ultimately benefitted Denmark, highlighting Greenland’s geopolitical value. “Mette Frederiksen has been given the opportunity to emphasise that Greenland’s big affairs are in fact decided in Copenhagen… strengthening Denmark’s position in this great strategic game at stake over the Arctic,” it said.last_img read more

Canadian peacekeepers evacuated injured French counterterror troops in Mali

first_imgOTTAWA — Canadian peacekeepers were called upon to evacuate several wounded French soldiers in Mali earlier this month after their patrol was ambushed while hunting for militants along the border with Niger.The previously unreported incident marks the first time the Canadians have been asked to help non-United Nations forces in Mali, where the French have been conducting counter-insurgency operations since 2014.Canada has eight helicopters and 250 military personnel in Mali, where they have been providing emergency medical evacuations and transporting troops and equipment across a large swath of the remote African country.The Canadians have conducted seven other medical evacuations since August, all of which involved injured UN troops and workers.In an interview with The Canadian Press, the commander of Canada’s task force in Mali said the UN and France have agreed to help each other in extreme circumstances and that his peacekeepers did their jobs by helping save lives.“I wouldn’t want people to presume or assume that we’re supporting counter-terrorism efforts,” said Col. Travis Morehen. “But it’s really at this point about saving allied lives.”News of the French evacuation comes as the federal government is contemplating a formal UN request to extend its peacekeeping mission in Mali, which is currently set to end at the end of July.France has about 3,000 heavily armed soldiers in Mali and the surrounding region hunting militants linked to al-Qaida, the Islamic State and other extremist groups through what is known as Operation Barkhane.While Operation Barkhane has been credited with keeping the numerous Islamic extremist groups in Mali off balance, it has also been accused in some corners of contributing to instability in the region.According to media reports, a French patrol was operating near Mali’s border with Niger on March 10 when they were ambushed by a vehicle packed with explosives and a group of militants on motorcycles.Fifteen French soldiers were reportedly injured, two seriously, before the militants fled.The Canadians first learned about the attack when a French officer at the Operation Barkhane camp in Gao called while it was still happening and indicated an emergency medical evacuation might be required, said Morehen.The French counter-terror mission operates largely independently from the UN peacekeeping mission in Mali, but Morehen says there is a good working relationship between the two.That includes the French providing air-traffic control services to the UN around Gao, the northern Malian city that is home to several military bases, including one belonging to Barkhane and another where the Canadians are located.The French also boast a more capable hospital than the UN, Morehen said, which is why the Canadians often end up bringing any wounded peacekeepers that they pick up in the field to the Barkhane camp.“So our pilots go over there and make sure that we have our flying procedures correct and we have a technical arrangement with them as well for medical support,” Morehen said.“There’s lots of sharing between us, which is all blessed by our governments.”Three Canadian helicopters were quickly deployed with approval from the UN mission commander in Bamako, Morehen said, and arrived at the scene about two hours later, at which point the fighting was over.Because of the distance, the two smaller Griffon escorts were redirected to a nearby town to refuel while the larger Chinook, which is configured like a flying hospital, continued back to Gao alone with the injured French soldiers.“It does increase the risk,” he said, “but we balanced it against the need to get those wounded back to medical facilities as soon as possible.”While he agreed that it was “the right thing to do,” Walter Dorn, an expert on peacekeeping at the Canadian Forces College in Toronto, said the evacuation nonetheless risked linking the UN and French missions in some minds.“The risk is that we are associated with Barkhane and we then become subject to more attacks and the line between peacekeepers and counter-insurgency fighters is blurred,” Dorn said.Morehen pushed back against such suggestions, insisting the evacuation was an extremely rare circumstance and that anyone who wants to target the UN — which has suffered dozens of casualties in Mali — will do so no matter what.“The people that want to do people harm here, they’ve already got it formulated in their mind,” he said. “I don’t see how fathomable it is that we would be targeted because we gave a medevac to French forces.”— Follow @leeberthiaume on TwitterLee Berthiaume, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Ban welcomes arrangement enabling Kyrgyz expresident to depart

15 April 2010The Secretary-General today welcomed the arrangement between Kyrgyzstan’s Provisional Government and former president Kurmanbek Bakiyev that has enabled him to leave the country. “The Secretary-General believes that this is an important step toward the peaceful, stable, prosperous and democratic development of the country and its good governance,” the Secretary-General’s spokesperson Martin Nesirky said in a statement.Mr. Bakiyev left the country today for neighbouring Kazakhstan, according to media reports. He had fled to the south of Kyrgyzstan as a bloody uprising against his Government unfolded in the country’s capital, Bishkek, last week. Dozens of people died in the unrest.“The UN, together with its international and regional partners, is ready to work with the authorities in Bishkek for the benefit of the people of Kyrgyzstan,” Mr. Nesirky said in the statement. “The Secretary-General underlines the importance of universal respect for the principles of international humanitarian and human rights laws and of justice and accountability,” he added. read more

Closing Bell TSX closes higher on TD CIBC earnings as SP 500

TORONTO — Solid bank earnings helped lift the Toronto stock market to a modest gain on Thursday.Here are the closing numbersTSX — 14,214.35 +25.77 0.18%S&P 500 — 1,854.29 +9.13 0.49%Dow — 16,272.65 +74.24 0.46%Nasdaq — 4,318.93 +26.87 0.63%Traders also took in remarks from U.S. Federal Reserve chair Janet Yellen, who said it’s too early to tell how badly adverse winter weather is affecting the American economy.The S&P/TSX composite index climbed 26.16 points to 14,214.74 as CIBC (TSX:CM) posted quarterly net income of $1.18 billion, up nearly 50% from a year ago and partly due to the sale of half its Aeroplan credit card business to TD Bank (TSX:TD).Ex-items, CIBC’s earnings were up 6.3% to $951 million or $2.31 a share, 15 cents better than estimates. TD had $2.04 billion of net income in the first quarter, up 14% from a year earlier. Adjusted net income was $2.02 billion, or $1.06 per common share, two cents ahead of estimates.TD hiked its dividend by 9% to 47 cents per share while CIBC’s will be going up about 2% to 98 cents per share. TD shares rose 34 cents to $49.76 while CIBC gained 88 cents to $91.47.“No qualms about them,” said Ian Nakamoto, director of research at 3MACS.“They have a tendency (to beat expectations) and that’s exactly what they did.”The Canadian dollar was off 0.06 of a cent at 89.8 cents US.New York indexes advanced while traders also digested data showing that orders for durable goods declined by a better than expected seasonally adjusted 1% in January compared with December.The Dow Jones industrials gained 74.24 points to 16,272.65, the Nasdaq was up 26.87 points at 4,318.93 while the S&P 500 index edged up 9.14 points to another record close of 1,854.4.Yellen, during a question and answer session before the Senate’s banking committee, noted that “a number of data releases have pointed to softer spending than many analysts had expected.”“Part of that softness may reflect adverse weather conditions, but at this point it is difficult to discern how much,” she said.In other earnings news, Maple Leaf Foods (TSX:MFI) gained 44 cents to $16.33 even as it reported an adjusted quarterly operating loss of $21.7 million or 25 cents a share, a big miss from the six cents a share of adjusted profit that analysts had estimated.The tech sector led advancers, up 0.79 % with BlackBerry (TSX:BB) ahead 20 cents to $11.68.The financial sector gained 0.52% as the TD and CIBC earnings added to solid reports from earlier in the week from Royal Bank (TSX:RY), National Bank (TSX:NA) and Bank of Montreal (TSX:BMO).The base metals sector was up 0.39% as May copper lost one cent to US$3.20 a pound.A major decliner was Taseko Mines (TSX:TKO) after the federal government again rejected its proposed $1.5-billion, open-pit gold-copper mine in British Columbia’s Interior over environmental concerns. Its shares fell 12 cents or 5.06% to $2.25.The gold sector was flat as April bullion gained $3.80 to US$1,331.80 an ounce.The energy sector was the leading decliner, down 0.35% as the April crude contract in New York dipped 19 cents to US$102.40 a barrel. TOP STORIESBig profits at TD and CIBC show concerns about consumer debt slowdown overblownDon’t you wish you listened when Warren Buffett said ‘Buy America’ in the depths of the recession?Tesla’s plans for massive US$5B battery ‘gigafactory’ could spark bidding war as 6,500 jobs up for grabsKeystone XL clears another hurdle with ruling that environmental review didn’t breach rulesWHAT’S ON DECK FRIDAYECONOMIC NEWSCANADA8:30 a.m.GDP (Q4): Economists expect a decline of 0.3% from the month before, 2.6% growth annualized UNITED STATES8:30 a.m.Real GDP (Q4): Economists expect 2.5% growth annualized 9:45 a.m.Chicago PMI (Feb): Economists expect a reading of 56.4, down from the month before 9:55 a.m.University of Michigan consumer sentiment index (Feb): Economists expect a reading of 81.2, unchanged 10 a.m.Pending home sales (Jan): Economists expect 1.8% gain from the month before, a decline of 10.8% year over year  CORPORATE NEWSUNITED STATESIron Mountain Incorporated Q4 earnings: Analysts expect 22¢ a share Pepco Holdings, Inc.

AIDS drug prices drop sharply but unevenly in Latin America and Caribbean

In its study of prices between May 2001 and May 2002, PAHO found wide differences among the 14 countries surveyed. For example, the cost of one common antiretroviral therapy dropped from around $21,500 to $1,600 in Haiti. In Brazil, another common therapy dropped from $1,400 to $635 – the lowest in the region – while some countries were paying more than $6,000 for the same treatment.Nevertheless, the price of the two main drug combinations dropped 25 per cent and 54 per cent respectively, to between $2,500 and $2,750. And information provided to PAHO since the survey indicate a further drop, with some countries now able to provide drugs to AIDS patients for around $1,100 a year.Even with greatly reduced prices however, many countries cannot afford to provide antiretroviral drugs to all in need. Out of at least 475,000 people in need in the region, only 170,000 currently have access to the drugs – mostly in Brazil. And the incidence of infection continues to increase.PAHO, established in 1902, is the oldest health organization in the world, and serves as the regional office for the Americas of the UN World Health Organization (WHO). In the framework of the WHO/UNAIDS Accelerated Access Initiative, it is working to help countries increase their access to comprehensive HIV care and support. read more

Slow comeback 6 years later US finally regains the privatesector jobs lost

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WASHINGTON – The U.S. economy has reached a milestone: It has finally regained all the private-sector jobs it lost during the Great Recession.Yet it took a painfully slow six years, and unemployment remains stubbornly high at 6.7 per cent.The comeback figures were contained in a government report Friday that showed a solid if unspectacular month of job growth in March.Businesses and nonprofits shed 8.8 million jobs during the 2007-09 recession; they have since hired 8.9 million. But because the population has grown since the big downturn, the economy is still millions of jobs short of where it should be by now.Also, government jobs are still 535,000 below the level they were at when the recession began in December 2007. That’s why the overall economy still has 422,000 fewer jobs than it did then.As a result, most analysts were hardly celebrating the milestone.Heidi Shierholz, an economist at the liberal Economic Policy Institute, called it a “pretty meaningless benchmark economically.”“The potential labour force is growing all the time, so the private sector should have added millions of jobs over the last six-plus years,” she said.U.S. employers did add a seasonally adjusted 192,000 jobs in March, just below February’s 197,000, which was revised higher. March’s figure nearly matched last year’s average monthly gain, suggesting that the economy has recovered from the hiring slowdown caused by severe weather in December and January.“We’re seeing sustained improvement,” said Scott Anderson, chief economist at Bank of the West. “But we’re not really that much stronger than we were last year. And we need more improvement for a stronger economy to come into fruition.”The March figures did signal that stronger gains could lie ahead: More Americans without jobs are starting to look for one, and paychecks are growing.Most economists expect job growth to pick up a bit to a monthly pace of 225,000 or more. One reason: Americans have reduced their debts and benefited from rising home prices and a rising stock market. Better household finances should translate into more spending.And a major drag on growth — federal spending cuts and tax increases — will fade this year, most likely boosting the economy. Budget battles and government shutdowns that have eroded business and consumer confidence since the recession ended are unlikely this year.“Enough repair has happened in damaged sectors and there’s enough calm … so we can have a real recovery,” said Ethan Harris, global economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch.Greater business confidence has been good for companies such as Advanced Technology Services, a Peoria, Ill.-based firm that maintains machine tools, robotics and computer systems for industrial companies such as Caterpillar, Honeywell and Honda.The company has about 120 openings for factory floor technicians, network engineers and information technology professionals. It has 2,700 employees in the U.S. and 300 more in Mexico and Britain.Jeff Owens, president of ATS, said his clients appear more confident about economic growth and more willing to invest in machinery. He is seeing solid growth in the auto, food processing and oil and gas drilling equipment industries.“The economy is better than it was a year or two ago,” Owens said. “We’re seeing that people are more comfortable with executing their strategic plans.”The U.S. unemployment rate has been stuck at 6.7 per cent since December, but that partly reflects a positive trend: More Americans, particularly younger people, are either working or looking for work.So far this year, about 1.3 million people have started looking for jobs, and most have found them. Last year, by contrast, the number of people either working or looking for work had shrunk by roughly 500,000.That’s a welcome change from the pattern that had prevailed since the recession: The proportion of Americans working or looking for work fell to a 35-year low in December. Many of the unemployed had become discouraged and stopped hunting for jobs.In addition, many younger people stayed in school to avoid the job market. And some older Americans probably retired earlier than they would have otherwise.For most of the past four years, the number of Americans who found jobs barely kept up with population growth. Now it’s growing slightly faster. As a result, the percentage of Americans 16 or older who were working reached 58.9 per cent in March — the highest point since 2009.Another positive sign in the report: Americans worked more hours last month. The average work week rose to 34.5 hours last month, up from 34.3 in February.More hiring plus a longer workweek means bigger paychecks for more Americans. That should help fuel more consumer spending and economic growth in the months ahead.Still, for individual workers, average hourly pay slipped a penny to $24.30. Average hourly wages have risen 2.1 per cent in the past year, faster than the 1.1 per cent inflation rate. But in a healthy economy, hourly wages typically grow about 3.5 per cent a year.One thing holding back overall pay is the quality of jobs. Most of those added last month were in low-paying industries.Temporary help agencies added 28,500 positions. Hotels and restaurants added 33,100, and retailers 21,300.Higher-paying positions didn’t fare as well. Manufacturers shed 1,000 jobs, the first such drop since July. And professional and technical services, which include accountants, engineers and information technology workers, added just 10,400.Freezing cold and heavy snowstorms this winter closed factories, slowed home sales and kept consumers away from shopping malls. As a result, many economists expect growth slowed to a 1.5 per cent to 2 per cent annual rate in the first three months of the year from 2.6 per cent in the fourth quarter.But steady hiring, greater business and consumer confidence and fewer government spending cuts should accelerate growth to about 3 per cent for the rest of this year.___AP Economics Writers Josh Boak and Paul Wiseman contributed to this report.___Contact Chris Rugaber on Twitter at Slow comeback: 6 years later, US finally regains the private-sector jobs lost in the recession FILE – In this Thursday March 13, 2014, file photo, job seekers line up to attend a marijuana industry job far in Downtown Denver.

Pensioner jailed for raping 3yearold while babysitting

first_imgA 66-YEAR-OLD MAN has been jailed for life after being pleading guilty to raping a 3-year-old boy he was babysitting.Barry John Britton had befriended the child’s family at the start of this year  and gained their trust sufficiently to be allowed to babysit the boy at their home in London, police said.The alarm was raised by the boy’s grandmother after a chance conversation between her and the boy, and the police were called.Britton was arrested immediately at his home in Westminster, London, and specially-trained officers interviewed the boy.Britton refused to co-operate with police but the evidence against him was strong enough for him to be charged with a number of offences, including oral rape of a child and causing a child to engage in penetrative sexual activity.The pensioner changed his plea to guilty while he was on remand. He was sentenced to life at a court in London on Thursday, and must serve a minimum of five years.London Metropolitan Police described him as a “predatory offender”.“The family can now be assured that their son and other children are safe from this dangerous man and that he has been brought to justice,” said Detective Sergeant Tom Haines.Read: Calls for sentencing guidelines after two-year sentence for GAA figure guilty of sexual assault > Read: Julian Assange loses bid to scrap arrest warrant, is told to be ‘man enough’ to face sex charges >last_img read more

Citigroup Sells Japan Retail Banking Unit to Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corp

first_imgCitigroup Holdings Inc announced on Thursday that it has reached a definitive agreement to sell its retail banking unit in Japan to Sumitomo Mitsui Banking Corporation (SMBC), a unit of Sumitomo Mitsui Financial Group.The financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.Under the terms of the deal, SMBC will take over the retail unit entirely, which includes all its ATMs, branches, 1,600 employees and 74,000 customer accounts. It will also take over $21 billion worth of foreign currency deposits.Citi said that the transaction is subject to regulatory approval and is expected to close in late 2015. The company, however, added that the customers would still have access to the global Citibank ATMs after the acquisition.”This is a positive outcome for Citi, as well as for the employees and customers of our retail banking business in Japan. This decision furthers Citi’s global strategy of focusing our resources where we feel we have a competitive advantage, which includes our Institutional Clients Group businesses in Japan. Citi has been in Japan since 1902 and it is an important market for Citi,” said Peter B. Eliot, CEO of Citibank Japan.News of Citigroup’s exit from the retail banking sector in Japan broke earlier this month. At that time, sources familiar with the matter told Reuters that the sale would cost around $334 million or 40 billion yen.The sale marks the end of Citi’s retail banking operations in the Orient. Falling loan demand and interest margins in the market has dampened business for the financial giant and therefore, it decided to wrap up its 100-year business.In October, Citigroup said it would exit 11 lacklustre markets around the world, including Japan, to focus more on its investment banking and corporate finance sector.Citi has been scaling back on costs from every aspect possible. It has cut 20,000 jobs since the time Michael Corbat became CEO. It has also cut back on real estate costs by 10 million square feet.Citi is poised to take a hit of almost $3.5 billion in litigation and repositioning costs related to its rate-rigging and money laundering controversies.At an investor conference earlier this month, Corbat said that the company will have to tackle huge costs related to the fines, which will leave the bank “marginally profitable” in the fourth quarter of 2014.”The big things for us to remain out there are the combination of foreign exchange, LIBOR and AML and process controls with some other small ones,” said Corbat at the conference, according to The Financial Times.”Based on the conversations that we’ve had, and I think a number of precedents that have been established in the market, we’re at a point in the fourth quarter where we’re going to go and recognise what we believe are the charges necessary to largely put those behind us,” he added.last_img read more

Reliance Jio may launch 4G services across India by April 2016

first_imgReliance Jio is expected to launch its pan-India 4G services in April this year, according to a US-based brokerage firm.Reliance Jio, the telecom arm of Mukesh Ambani-led Reliance Industries, had launched its 4G services for its employees on 27 December.”We expect Reliance Jio’s pan-India launch by April 2016 as the company mentioned all regulatory compliance measures are in place,” Morgan Stanley said in a note sent to The Economic Times.Morgan Stanley expects Reliance Jio to earn $1.7 billion of revenue by the end of 2016-17 if it starts its commercial operations in April.The positive outlook by the brokerage firm comes in wake of Reliance Jio’s partnership with Reliance Communications in spectrum trading and sharing. As per the agreement reached by both the companies this week, RJIL will buy spectrum from RCom in the 800-megahertz (MHz) band across nine circles and the two companies will share spectrum in the 800-MHz band across 17 circles.RJio possesses 2,300 MHz in all circles, 1,800 MHz in 18 circles and 850 MHz in 10 circles.”RCom has applied for spectrum liberalisation in the 850 MHz band, Jio will be able to get the spectrum in 45 days when its files with the telecom department for related permission,” Morgan Stanley said.Reliance Jio may aim to gain about 131 million customers by end-2019-20, it added.It also expects the company to raise its annual revenue of $6.69 billion (Rs 45,492 crore) by March 2020.Reliance Jio’s 4G launch is expected to pose significant risk to market shares of the top two telecom operators — Bharti Airtel and Vodafone India — as their high-value subscribers may become “early adopters” of the high-speed data services offered by the company, CLSA had said last month.last_img read more

The World Cup Attracts Hackers in This One Strange Way So Beware

first_img With the World Cup in full force in Russia, that means hackers are also keeping an eye on the event. If that doesn’t make much sense to you, here’s the rub. In the past few years, cybersecurity firm Akamai has been watching the scope of cyber attacks going on, with a sharp decline while the World Cup is going on — “at least until games are out of reach,” according to Akamai’s director Patrick Sullivan. When the games get going, however, there’s something important the company has to watch for: more attacks from the losing team’s home nation.In these cases, it appears that there are several attacks meant to keep news stories down in the winning team’s country that talk about the home team bringing home the gold. As silly and pointless as this sounds, it’s apparently a big problem when it comes to the World Cup. Activists use various kinds of different cyber attacks during events just like the World Cup to protest the nation hosting the event like recent protestors who were upset about the extravagant amount of money spent during the Brazilian World Cup.Of course, this probably doesn’t mean much to anyone who isn’t a big soccer fan, but it’s important for security firms to keep an eye on what’s going on around the world because it’s such a frustrating and large-scale problem that keeps creeping out of control once these big events are going on. Both governments in America and the U.K. have been telling tourists and players to keep their devices safe and to themselves, to avoid both criminals and types of espionage that could put entire nations at risk, especially in Russia.AdChoices广告It’s important to combat these cyberattacks, especially as the successful ones only go so far as to embolden the ones perpetrating them. If you’ll be in town for the World Cup, make sure you keep all your important information to yourself and don’t offer up any potential ammo for the hackers to jump on.

Europes largest sexual health clinic launches PrEP service due to huge demand

first_imgA major sexual health hub has launched a new scheme to provide access to HIV-preventing drug PrEP (pre-exposure prophylaxis).56 Dean Street, in central London, is now offering a prescription service for the drug called PrEP Shop.  An NHS funded trial of the drug, designed to assess demand, has already filled its quota, leaving many men looking for ways to access PrEP.The PrEP Shop will provide a generic version of the drug for £55 a month for those who missed out on a spot in IMPACT, the official NHS trial.The scheme is a first for the NHS as it prescribes a generic version of PrEP (in place of a more costly branded version, Truvada) outside the IMPACT trial.The official website says: “We’ve created PrEP Shop to make it easier for you to buy generic HIV PrEP from someone you trust. By using the buying power of the NHS we aim to keep prices as affordable as we can.”Last year an investigation into the economics of PrEP found that could save the NHS as much as £1bn.(Photo by Gonzalo Arroyo/Getty Images)Deborah Gold, Chief Executive of National AIDS Trust (NAT) said: “We applaud Dean Street for this decision to do all it can to increase access to PrEP.“However the fact that an NHS clinic has needed to create this additional option exposes the inadequacies of the current trial which is evidently not meeting need. Places in the trial are filling far too quickly, especially in cities.“NHS Trusts should not have to taking these steps to do right by their patients.“We call on NHS England, as a matter of urgency, to expand the limits on trial participants so that the need for the drug can be fully monitored (as per the trial’s aims) and, more importantly, so that people can prevent themselves from getting HIV.PrEP“Further, NHS England must now start working towards routine commissioning of PrEP.”Research released last year found that funding PrEP on the NHS would save around £1 billion over an 80 year period, according to a new study.The financial analysis, published in the Lancet Infectious Diseases journal, came from a team at University College London. The study from UCL predicted that a quarter of HIV cases would be prevented if PrEP was given to men who have sex with men.PrEPIf provided routinely the cost to the NHS would initially rise, as it spends money on PrEP and treating existing cases of HIV.Related: What is PrEP and how can I get it? Everything you need to know about HIV-preventing drugsHowever, the latter cost would plummet as the infection rates fall, and the analysis predicts that after around 40 years the savings made and spending on PrEP would be equal.After a further 40 years, the prediction is that £1 billion would be saved.Dr Alison Rodger of the UCL team of BBC News: “Not only is it a highly effective treatment, it will save money. It’s a no-brainer so it’s a good thing to do.”Medical director of the Terrence Higgins Trust Dr Michael Brady added: “It is important that all who need PrEP can access it.“Evidence like this reinforces the need for PrEP to be fully commissioned and given a long-term, sustainable home on the NHS in England.”PrEP can drastically reduce people’s chances of being infected with HIV and is recommended for groups considered to be at high risk of exposure to HIV, most significantly men who have sex with men.Organisers of the NHS England IMPACT trial said: “The trial is a pragmatic health technology assessment of PrEP and its implementation, that is, it aims to answer the key questions under real world conditions and at sufficient scale.“In addition, the new trial will assess the impact of PrEP on new HIV diagnoses and sexually transmitted infections. The results will inform service commissioners (funders) on how to support clinical and cost effective PrEP access in the future.”Recent research found that the number of gay and bisexual men diagnosed with HIV in the UK has fallen by more than a fifth.The figures showed a 21 percent fall in new HIV infections among men who have sex with men from 3,750 during 2015, to 2,810 in 2016.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Europe’s largest sexual health clinic to introduce new prescription service for PrEPLandmark court ruling in UK could pave way for cheaper, generic PrEPUK charity reveals plans to fund PrEP for those who can’t afford to buy it privatelyPINK NEWS-last_img read more

The Xoft System and its suite of products will also be showcased at the Xoft booth.At the meeting, Gary Proulx, M.D., medical director, radiation oncology at Exeter Hospital (N.H.) will present updated findings on his recent clinical experience treating 94 early-stage breast cancer patients with IORT using the Xoft System. The snap oral presentation is entitled “Intraoperative Radiation (IORT) as Adjuvant Radiation Monotherapy for Early-Stage Breast Cancer Patients Treated with Breast Conserving Surgery.”“Early results from our research suggest that this short course of full-dose radiation in a single treatment offers a low rate of local failure and a high rate of excellent cosmesis for properly selected patients. We are happy to report that 100 percent of patients were very pleased with the treatment experience and treatment outcome on follow up visits,” said Proulx. “I am very encouraged by the early results of our research that indicate improved quality of life for patients eligible for IORT by greatly reducing the number of treatments patients receive when compared to EBRT.”In addition, Ajay Bhatnagar, M.D., MBA, radiation oncologist at 21st Century Oncology (Ariz.), will participate in a panel discussion and several workshops during the meeting to review his recent clinical experience in treating nonmelanoma skin cancer (NMSC) with the Xoft System. The Xoft System is an isotope-free radiation treatment that is FDA cleared, CE marked, and licensed in a growing number of countries for the treatment of cancer anywhere in the body, including treatment of early-stage breast cancer, gynecological cancers and non-melanoma skin cancer. It utilizes a proprietary miniaturized X-ray as the radiation source that delivers precise treatment directly to cancerous areas while sparing healthy tissue and organs. The system requires only minimal shielding and therefore does not require room redesign or construction investment. Minimal shielding also allows medical personnel to remain in the room with the patient during treatment. The mobility of the Xoft System makes it easy to treat patients at multiple locations and to easily store the system when not in use.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

NEC Corps NeoFace to bring facial recognition to 2020 Tokyo Olympics

first_imgThis year, in the FIFA World Cup researchers and scientists, tried to use Artificial Intelligence ( AI) to predict the outcomes of all 64 matches. That did not work out well, accounting to probability and human nature that cannot be predicted. Now we see another implementation of AI in a major global sports event. This time it’s not to predict outcomes, but to identify players with facial recognition. In 2020, facial recognition will be used for the first time widely in an Olympic event to identify athletes. The Japanese IT firm NEC Corp will provide the facial recognition system. The facial recognition system will also be used in the 2020 Paralympics;  it was tested in the Rio 2016 Olympics. The system is built around an AI engine called NeoFace. In addition to athletes, the system will be used to identify volunteers, media, and other staff. It will be used to identify around 300,000 people across more than 40 venues. The Olympics will begin on July 24, 2020. People attending the event are expected to submit their data in advance before the Olympics start. It will be approved and stored in a database and used to identify players before entry. The system will link the person’s facial data with an IC card that will be carried by them. So entry would be permitted only if the facial data stored in the database matches the data stored in the IC carried by the person. Tokyo 2020 has security challenges since venues are not that large. This will result in long wait times before the players can get into the venues. With the summer heat in Tokyo, this presents a problem for the players. The events will be spread out across the metropolitan area, and people will have to authenticate themselves at every entry. The NeoFace system is introduced to address these problems in the Tokyo Olympics venues. The facial recognition system is aimed at strengthening security and minimizing waiting times for athletes. NeoFace will also help with identifying forged ID cards and help athletes avoid the stress of waiting in long lines for identification. NEC has substantial experience in the facial recognition field and their technology has been used at airports for several years. The Tokyo Olympics 2020 may be the Olympics event with most security implemented yet. For more information, you can check out the coverage by Reuters.

FHA to Bring Down Loan Limits for 2014

first_imgFHA to Bring Down Loan Limits for 2014 in Origination Share The “”Federal Housing Administration””: (FHA) is bringing down loan limits on single-family mortgages next year, HUD announced Friday.[IMAGE]According to “”Mortgagee Letter 13-43″”:, FHA’s revised ceiling for single-family loan limits will come down to $625,000 from $729,750. The change marks the first full implementation of loan-limit calculations under the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008; the lower limits were originally scheduled to be put into place at the start of 2009, but Congress delayed any action “”due to continuing strains in credit markets”” at the time, HUD said.””As the housing market continues its recovery, it is important for FHA to evaluate the role we need to play,”” said FHA Commissioner Carol Galante. “”Implementing lower loan limits is an important and appropriate step as private capital returns to portions of the market and enables FHA to concentrate on those borrowers that are still underserved.””As a result of the changing law, HUD estimates about 650 counties will have lower limits.Meanwhile, the loan limit floor for low-cost housing areas will remain at $271,050. Also left untouched were loan limits for FHA-insured reverse mortgages, which will continue to have a maximum claim amount of $625,500.As per usual, counties in Alaska, Hawaii, Guam, and the Virgin Islands will see higher limits to account for greater construction costs. The limit for a single-family loan in those areas will be $938,250.HUD also announced it is accepting requests for local increases until January 6, 2014. Requests sent in must have sufficient sales price data for one-family properties from January through August 2013; HUD will only consider changes in counties for which it lacks sufficient transaction data.center_img December 9, 2013 454 Views Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Carol Galante FHA HUD Investors Lenders & Servicers Service Providers 2013-12-09 Tory Barringerlast_img read more
