Gloves come off as Canadian TV rivals battle over fees for carrying

first_imgMONTREAL — This year’s National Hockey League playoffs features an unusually fierce battle between two long-time business rivals, Quebecor’s TVA Sports and BCE’s Bell TV.TVA Sports blocked its French-language NHL feed to Bell at 7 p.m. Wednesday as the playoffs got under way, to reinforce Quebecor’s demand for better fees from Bell.That defied a warning by the federal broadcasting and telecommunications regulator, which had directed Quebecor earlier Wednesday to continue providing the signal to Bell TV subscribers despite the fee dispute.The CRTC also warned that it was ready to use its powers to enforce its regulations.A Quebecor statement issued later Wednesday, as the first Round 1 playoff games were in full swing, said it cut off the TVA Sports feed to Bell because the parties hadn’t negotiated a resolution to their dispute over fees.Quebecor acquired the rights to French-language NHL games in an multi-year agreement with Rogers, after the Toronto-based telecom company acquired the Canadian national rights for NHL coverage through to the 2025-26 season.

Cholera continues to spread in Iraq UN health agency reports

4 October 2007Cholera is continuing to spread across Iraq and dissemination to as yet unaffected areas remains highly possible, with more than 30,000 people having already fallen ill with acute watery diarrhoea, according to the latest update by the United Nations health agency. Cholera is continuing to spread across Iraq and dissemination to as yet unaffected areas remains highly possible, with more than 30,000 people having already fallen ill with acute watery diarrhoea, according to the latest update by the United Nations health agency. More than 3,300 cases have been identified as positive for Vibrio cholerae, the bacterium that causes the debilitating and sometimes fatal intestinal infection, but clinical symptoms indicate the presence of cholera in many others, the UN World Health Organization (WHO) said. Fourteen are known to have died from the disease which is often caused by polluted water, but the low case-fatality rate throughout the outbreak that began in August indicates that those who have become sick have been able to access adequate treatment on time. Most laboratory-confirmed cases have occurred in the north in Kirkuk and Sulaymaniah, but an increasing number of cases of acute watery diarrhoea has been reported in Diala, a province neighbouring Baghdad, with clinical symptoms indicating cholera. The number of cases has been stable in Basra, Baghdad, Dahuk, Mosul and Tikrit, but a case has now been confirmed in the previously unaffected province of Wasit. The Government has mobilized a multi-sectoral response, specific controls have been reinforced and preventive measures to reduce the risk of transmission to unaffected areas have been put in place. But the overall quality of water and sanitation is very poor, a factor known to greatly facilitate cholera contamination. WHO is procuring 5,000,000 water-treatment tablets and two of its epidemiologists are being deployed to support the Health Ministry. WHO does not recommend any restrictions to travel or trade to or from affected areas as a means to control, but urges neighbouring countries to reinforce active surveillance and preparedness systems. Mass chemoprophylaxis is strongly discouraged, as it has no effect on the spread of cholera, can have adverse effects by increasing antimicrobial resistance and provides a false sense of security. Use of the current internationally available pre-qualified oral cholera vaccine is not recommended once an outbreak has started due to its 2-dose regimen, the time required to reach protective efficacy, high cost and the heavy logistics associated with its use. read more

TransCanada US power assets made it through Sandy in good shape

Guterres welcomes successful wrap up of longrunning UN peacekeeping mission in Liberia

In a statement from a UN spokesman, the Secretary-General also commended the Government’s ongoing efforts to keep Liberia on the path the peace and sustainable development.The UN chief appreciated the contributions of all partners in the Liberian peace process over the years, particularly the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS), whose green helmets laid the foundation for UN peacekeepers in Liberia ahead of UNMIL’s establishment in 2003. Mr. Guterres also expressed appreciation for the excellent leadership of his Special Representative for Liberia, Farid Zarif, and thanked all previous leaders of the Mission, and paid tribute to all uniformed and civilian personnel who served with UNMIL.“The Secretary-General expresses his profound respect to the memory of the 202 peacekeepers who lost their lives in the service of peace during the nearly 15 years the Mission was deployed in Liberia,” said the statement, adding that the UN chief also expressed his gratitude to all troop- and police-contributing countries. Even though the peacekeeping operation has wound down, the UN family still present in Liberia will remain committed to supporting the Government-led reform process “with a view to ensuring that the hard-won peace can be sustained and the country and its people will continue to progress and thrive,” the statement concluded.Liberia, the first independent country in Africa, enjoyed nearly a century and a half of stability before falling into chaos, enduring two devastating civil wars between 1989 and 2003.More than a quarter of a million Liberians were killed and nearly a third of the population was uprooted.  The UN Security Council established the peacekeeping mission for Liberia in October 2003, as violence lingered even after warring factions agreed to a cease-fire and a plan for political rebuilding. Get all the facts and figures about UNMIL’s operations here. read more

Opinion Buckeye defense set for another title run in 2015

OSU sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa (right) sacks Michigan redshirt-senior quarterback Devin Gardner during a Nov. 29 game at Ohio Stadium. OSU won, 42-28.Credit: Mark Batke / Photo editorIt’s been more than a month since the Ohio State football team won its eighth national championship, but it is never too early to look forward to the start of the 2015 season.The Buckeyes are set to return seven of 11 starters on defense, a crew that held all three Heisman finalists relatively in check over the last three games of the year.With the 2015 spring game just about two months away from kicking off, we look at what the “Silver Bullets” will be bringing to the table as they get set to defend their title.Defensive lineWhile the Buckeyes lose Steve Miller and Michael Bennett, OSU doesn’t seem to be taking too big of a step back in 2015 along the defensive front.Unanimous All-American junior Joey Bosa is set to return for what will likely be his final season in the scarlet and gray, and veteran senior Adolphus Washington will likely anchor the interior of the front four for OSU.The candidate most likely to replace Bennett, who is almost sure to be a first- or second-round NFL Draft selection, is senior Tommy Schutt.Schutt played in 12 games in 2014 and recorded 10 tackles.Redshirt-sophomore Michael Hill will also earn time as the Buckeyes rotate early and often on the defensive line, especially inside.Replacing the production lost by Miller and Rashad Frazier should not be an issue for the Buckeyes as highly touted youngsters step to the forefront.Sophomore Jalyn Holmes, who made an appearance in nine games including the title game against Oregon, is a leading candidate for the end spot while fellow redshirt-sophomore Tyquan Lewis will also see significant playing time.Left out of the mix will be 2015 recruit Jashon Cornell. Despite being a four-star recruit, he is buried behind a stable of talent that will be competing for playing time on a defense looking to repeat for a national title.Returning starters:   Joey Bosa, Adolphus WashingtonKey losses: Michael Bennett, Steve MillerOdd man out: Jashon CornellProjected starters: Bosa, Washington, Tommy Schutt, Jalyn HolmesLinebackersThe linebackers on the 2014 title winning defense more than exceeded expectations after a less-than-stellar 2013 season.Led by senior Joshua Perry, the Buckeyes are set to return two of three starters from the linebacker core and a third with plenty of experience.Redshirt-sophomore Darron Lee and sophomore Raekwon McMillan will likely round out a three-man group that is built to torture opponents’ backfields.McMillan — who will replace Curtis Grant — totaled 54 tackles in his freshman campaign, just 15 less than Grant, who started each game in 2014.Combined, the three returning players accounted for 259 tackles in 2014, and are poised to shatter that number in 2015.Should an unforeseen injury occur, incoming freshman Justin Hilliard, the top outside linebacker recruit in the country according to ESPN, could see some early reps.Hilliard is an Ohio native out of St. Xavier High School and a possible future star for the Buckeyes.Returning starters: Joshua Perry, Darron LeeKey loss: Curtis GrantOdd man out: Chris WorleyProjected starters: Perry, Lee, Raekwon McMillanDefensive backsIf you are looking for a position group to credit for winning the 2014 title (other than the quarterbacks), look no further than the OSU secondary. The Buckeyes improved to the 29th best pass defense in 2014 from the 112th ranked pass defense in 2013, and stifled offenses for the large part of the title run. From the back four, the Buckeyes are set to return three players in 2015, but the one player lost might be the most difficult to replace. Doran Grant played arguably the biggest role on the OSU defense other than Bosa in 2014, as he took on wide receivers like Tony Lippett from Michigan State and Heisman finalist Amari Cooper from Alabama and held each under 100 yards. With Doran Grant lost to graduation, it is likely redshirt-sophomore Eli Apple will slide over to the strongside corner spot while redshirt-junior Tyvis Powell and junior Vonn Bell will return to their respective safety spots. Leading candidates to take over the weakside corner position are likely redshirt-sophomore Gareon Conley and sophomore Damon Webb. Conley, who started in place of Apple during the Michigan State game, showed signs of weakness as he gave up two big plays to quarterback Connor Cook and company, forcing Apple to play injured. Webb, whom some expected to redshirt in 2014, did not do so and appeared in nine games as a freshman, collecting three tackles. Another candidate is sophomore Erick Smith, who appeared in 13 games as a freshman and totaled 13 tackles to go along with an interception against Kent State. Whoever replaces Doran Grant will have big shoes to fill, and will likely be tested early and often. Returning starters: Eli Apple, Vonn Bell, Tyvis PowellKey losses: Doran Grant, Armani Reeves (injury)Odd man out: Gareon ConleyProjected starters: Apple, Damon Webb, Bell, PowellThe Buckeye defense is set to test its changes against Virginia Tech on Sept. 7 in Blacksburg, Va. read more

Daniel Deese. “Detectives investigated the threats and found images and wording related to a recent arrest in South Carolina regarding a school shooting threat,” the sergeant said. “With cooperation from the social media outlet, it appears there were no specific threats targeting San Marcos High School, but images from the South Carolina incident were reposted.”In a follow-up message on Facebook, the district said “the rumor was based on a photo of a freshman in South Carolina who posted a threat last week. Kids saw it in our district and reported it to authorities.”The South Carolina incident in question appeared to be a posting made by a high school student there following last week’s shooting in Parkland, Florida, which left 17 people dead at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School.In the hours after the deadly Florida shooting, the South Carolina ninth-grader posted a photograph of himself wearing a mask and holding what appeared to be an assault rifle with the caption “Round 2 of Florida tomorrow.”According to local media reports, that student was arrested and the weapon in the photo was determined to be an Airsoft pellet gun that looked like an assault rifle. District officials in San Marcos thanked the community members who reported the potential threat and said the incident was handled as it should have been.“Both our staff and law enforcement responded as we would expect in these circumstances,” the district said in a Facebook post. “We want all of our students to be safe and carry on with their education.” Not all parents were happy with the district’s response to the incident.Before the full explanation was given as to the threat, dozens of parents said on Facebook they would keep their children home from school. Other parents demanded more transparency once an explanation was given and said the district’s notifications Monday night only served to spread alarm.“Your calls and emails caused district wide panic and fear,” parent Tracy Faris wrote in a response to the district on Facebook.“I am extremely upset with how this entire thing was handled in the district!” wrote parent Kelley Crawford Kerscher on Facebook. “School should have been canceled today. In light of everything going on in schools these days, this year, you can’t invoke that kind of fear into parents and students throughout the district and then say, `false alarm, all good … see you soon.”’The shooting scare came at a particularly sensitive time less than a week after the deadly Florida shooting. It also came during the same school year during which a series of threats rocked the Poway Unified School District.In early October, a student at Poway High School texted friends that “there would be a shooting at the school” and posted an image of the conversation on social media, though authorities investigated the claim and ultimately said the threat was unfounded. Roughly two weeks after that threat, near the end of October, students at Meadowbrook Middle School in Poway were found on consecutive days to be carrying “hit lists” containing the names of classmates and faculty at the school.

Bears ransack Boynton Beach familys SUV in Tennessee

first_imgPIGEON FORGE, Tenn. (WSVN) — A Boynton Beach family who high-tailed it out of Florida ahead of Hurricane Irma got the scare of their lives in Tennessee, thanks to some ransacking bears.Travis Gonzalez took his family to Pigeon Forge, outside Knoxville, to ride out the storm. He never expected to come face to face with bears.I just went fishing that morning, so they probably smelled some of this fishing stuff in the back, maybe,” said Gonzalez.The animals broke into Gonzalez’s SUV, then proceeded to rip out part of the dashboard, tear out the rearview mirrors and even break the locks.“They locked themselves inside the car, and then they just went crazy because they couldn’t get out,” said Gonzalez.Gonzalez knew he had to get them out of there, so with a quick tug of the door handle, the bears came pouring out of the vehicle and took off. The South Floridian said he’s never moved so fast in his life.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.

The challenges of being the only woman on a pipeline crew

first_imgDiane Schenker (far right) poses with “Pops” (center right) a heavy equipment operator. (Photo courtesy of: Diane Schenker)In 1976, Diane Schenker had recently graduated from Reed College and was living in Fairbanks when she heard a rumor that the Pipeliners 798, a welding union, had been forced to hire women to help build the trans-Alaska pipeline.A 21-year-old with no experience in construction, Schenker convinced the union office manager to let her work with an all-male crew of welders from the South.Years later Diane Schenker would testify in a lawsuit brought by the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission against Union 798 for discrimination against women and minorities. Schenker is now retired and living in Anchorage.Listen nowSCHENKER: I wasn’t worried about them not wanting me there because I was female. My biggest worry was that I really wouldn’t to be able to do it.  That it would be too physically hard, and that I’d oversold myself. I didn’t even know what a welding rod is.Unbeknownst to me before I arrived they had heard the rumor that they might be forced to have women on their crews and they had made this big pact amongst themselves that if any females showed up, nobody would ever speak to that female. And so that lasted about four hours.They gave me what they thought was the worst job on the crew, which is crawling along on your hands and knees under the pipeline a mile or so back from the rest of the crew all by yourself and picking up the spent welding rod butts. They thought that was just the worst thing they could do to somebody, and to me it was just — I loved it!Ronnie from Louisiana grinds a welding pass. When Diane Schenker was assigned to a grinding job, she says most of the crew threatened to quit because they thought the task was too dangerous for women. (Photo courtesy of: Diane Schenker)I used to joke with the guys on the crew about all the guff they had given me about, “Oh you know women can’t do this work,” and I would tell them, “You couldn’t wait tables for five seconds. I mean I’ve carried more weight on a tray than I’ve had to do in this job.”The rule was if you were a welder’s helper — if you put in so many hours — then you got your union card. You got to join the union. So when I had put all my hours in, I went to whoever was in charge and said, “Hey, I did it. I have my hours. I want my card now,” and they said no.He made it perfectly clear that I could keep asking about my card and he’d have me fired immediately, or I could just drop it and never bring it up again. He said, “You know you might win in the long run, but meanwhile you’ll be out of a job and all that money.”Several of them actually came up and kind of grudgingly admitted that they didn’t think women would work, and they thought it was great that I was working. They really dropped the animosity. They never dropped the pornography and the sexual references, you know the kind of day to day sexism, but they weren’t mad or trying to get me hurt after that.There was a lot of joking and horsing around — practical jokes. One guy threw me in a little pond of water one day, and I told the crew, “You like to joke and kid around all the time, but don’t throw me in the water because I don’t know how to swim.” One guy threw me in the water anyway, and you know it was scary for me because I really can’t swim, and I had to struggle to get out of there. The crew just ran him off immediately. I mean that minute he went back on the bus and was flown out of the camp. So you know, they had kind of come around to being my friends.This story is part of Midnight Oil, a new podcast from Alaska’s Energy Desk.last_img read more

Floodlike situation hits families inundates lowland areas

first_imgKolkata: Incessant rainfall since Saturday has led to a flood-like situation in and around Balurghat. Lowland areas of Atreyee Colony have been inundated. Around 50 families were drastically hit due to the flood-like conditions. Two-hundred people, including women and minors, were rendered homeless after a sudden spate in river Atreyee and connecting rivers in northern parts of north Bengal and Bangladesh.”Atreyee has been in spate due to heavy showers. Most of the houses located in low land areas were submerged in Atreyee Colony. We have requested the administrative officials to arrange drinking water and food for us,” said a local Sujit Sarkar. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: MamataAround 40 to 50 bighas of agricultural land at Gopalpur in Balurghat block were partly or fully submerged due to the sudden rise in water-level of Atreyee. A large part of Dakra under Chalkvrigu gram panchayat was inundated and 50 families were hit. There was flood conditions in Kumarganj, Gangarampur and Hili due to the spate in Punarbhava and Tangan. Approximately, 150 families were affected. According to the irrigation department officials, the rate of receding trend is very low because almost all rivers are still in spate due to continuous rainfall in north Bengal and Bangladesh. Senior district administrative officials and district irrigation department officials feel the situation may turn critical if the region receives further heavy rainfall in the next 48 hours. “The situation may deteriorate further if the region receives more rains in the next 48 hours,” said an irrigation officer. According to sources, rivers Tangan and Punarbhaba have damaged banks and embankments in several parts of Gangarampur and Kushmandi. Both the rivers have changed its course in different areas, owing to heavy silt deposits in riverbeds, damaging existing flood protection works. People residing close to rivers have been alerted about the rise in water-level. Residents have also been advised to avoid venturing into rivers Punarbhaba and Atreyee due to the heavy current in water. Balurghat municipal authority has taken measures to tackle the situation. The affected families were shifted to Utsab Bhavan and they were provided drinking water.last_img read more

The check valves have a spring that’s opened to let propellant components flow in the direction you want them to go. However, the leak in the check valve caused a “slug” consisting of a high-pressure oxidizer, which is a titanium component and resulted in the explosive accident.The SpaceX representative added that the engineering team from the company is already fixing the hardware to make the Crew Dragon a safer vehicle and ensure it doesn’t run in the same problem again. Specifically, the check valve will be replaced with a burst valve, which will completely separate both oxidizer and fuel from the pressurization liquids.While these are just the preliminary findings and only about 80 percent of the investigation is completed, the officials expressed their confidence in the details that are being made public.Future Plans For Crew DragonPrior to the accident, an uncrewed Crew Dragon 2 has already been successfully launched to the ISS in March. A two-week crewed test mission was supposed to be scheduled on July, but with the production and investigation still underway, the officials are not certain if a flight could be accomplished by the end of 2019.Lueders explained that while it’s always possible for NASA to fly a crew on a SpaceX spacecraft, they’re focusing on all the tests of the various systems as of now.”In a lot of ways, this was a gift for us,” Lueders pointed out. “It was a test on the ground, we had a lot of instrumentation on the vehicle, we had high speed cameras, we were able to get the hardware and the data … through this process, we will continue to learn things that will help us fly safer.” TAG SpaceX, Crew Dragon, NASA, spacecraft (4) $37.99$37.99center_img DEAL OF THE DAY Bestseller Close SpaceX and NASA officials say that a propellant leak caused the unexpected destruction of a Crew Dragon spacecraft last April.The accident took place while the vehicle’s thruster systems were being tested on the ground at Cape Canaveral, Florida.

Siemens Healthineers Debuts Symbia Intevo Bold SPECTCT

first_img Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more Related Content Siemens Healthineers debuts Symbia Intevo Bold at the 2017 annual meeting of the Society of Nuclear Medicine & Molecular Imaging (SNMMI). The system combines the company’s proven single-photon emission computed tomography (SPECT) technologies with new, high-performance CT capabilities to enable a wide range of clinical applications. These new CT options help make even challenging exams a matter of clinical routine. With products such as Symbia Intevo Bold, as well as a new name that underlines the company’s pioneering spirit and engineering expertise, Siemens Healthineers — the separately managed healthcare business of Siemens AG — helps healthcare providers worldwide meet current challenges and excel in their respective environments.Symbia Intevo Bold addresses the growing trend of health care facilities using SPECT/CT systems in a dual-use setting, mirroring the rise of dual-use positron emission tomography (PET)/CT. More facilities are utilizing SPECT/CT systems as standalone or backup diagnostic CT systems. Additionally, institutions are looking to maximize efficiency for SPECT patients who also require a diagnostic CT scan by acquiring both sets of images on the same system. For these reasons, demand is increasing for SPECT/CT systems with optimal CT capabilities. Addressing that demand, the new Symbia Intevo Bold offers a host of optional applications that bolster the CT imaging capabilities of SPECT/CT.“Symbia Intevo Bold advances the dual-use capabilities of SPECT/CT, enabling exceptional image quality in both forms of imaging at the lowest possible patient dose,” said Jim Williams, head of Siemens Healthineers Molecular Imaging.Available on a Siemens Healthineers SPECT/CT system for the first time, the SAFIRE (Sinogram Affirmed Iterative Reconstruction) algorithm delivers excellent CT image quality while reducing patient radiation dose by as much as 60 percent. SAFIRE enables fast image reconstruction for easy implementation into a facility’s clinical routine. Additionally, SAFIRE reduces noise while maintaining detail visualization.Also available for the first time on any of the company’s SPECT/CT systems, the iMAR (Iterative Metal Artifact Reduction) algorithm reduces metal-related artifacts caused by metallic materials, such orthopedic and dental implants. With this capability, customers can not only curb or eliminate artifact-induced distortion in CT images but also apply the CT images for attenuation correction to provide a more enhanced, accurate SPECT image.The optional IVR (interleaved volume reconstruction) feature of Symbia Intevo Bold reconstructs overlapping CT images up to 32 slices to extract the maximum amount of diagnostic information from measured data, enabling evaluation of small structures such as lesions or fractures. IVR improves spatial resolution in the z-direction of all CT scans, regardless of pitch.Finally, the single-source dual energy capability of Symbia Intevo Bold employs two sequential spiral CT scans operating at different kV levels to combine tissue information with disease morphology, improving image quality.

Battle-hardened Chadian troops have had to retake some towns from Boko Haram several times because Nigerian troops haven’t arrived to secure them.Buhari was a major general in the army in the 1980s when he drove invading Chadian troops out of Nigeria in an unresolved dispute over an oil-rich border area.Presidents Idriss Deby of Chad and Mahamadou Issoufou of Niger were both at Buhari’s inauguration on Friday.Buhari has said that having foreign troops on Nigerian soil is a “national disgrace” and he is expected to want Nigeria to lead the multinational force approved by the African Union.The force still awaits a U.N. Security Council resolution on which international funding depends. The previous Nigerian administration had argued that the U.N. intervention shouldn’t be based on Chapter 7 of the U.N. charter, which can require military enforcement, but instead on Chapter 8, which recognizes the role of regional organizations in promoting peace and security.Buhari, a former military dictator, has promised better cooperation with his neighbors and to crush Boko Haram.
