Pancreatic Cancer Action Network Advocate Champion Charlotte Rae Dies

first_imgCharlotte Rae, an American TV actress, comedian, singer and Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (PanCAN) champion, has died. She was 92. No cause of death has been announced, but Rae publicly fought pancreatic cancer since 2009 and more recently, was diagnosed with bone cancer.Rae with fellow survivors at the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network PurpleStride Orange County 2016Rae was known most notably for her portrayal of Edna Garrett (Mrs. Garrett) in the sitcoms “Diff’rent Strokes” and its spin-off, “The Facts of Life.”“In the pancreatic cancer community, Charlotte was a cherished champion for the cause,” said Pamela Acosta Marquardt, PanCAN Founder. “She served as an Influencer of Hope, an elite group of notables who lend their voice and unite with everyday heroes in the fight against pancreatic cancer, and Charlotte was always willing to use her voice to raise awareness and visibility.”Pancreatic cancer was personal to Rae even before her own diagnosis. She lost three relatives to the disease, including her mother, uncle and older sister. Her extensive family history with pancreatic cancer led her to be more vigilant about the symptoms and risk factors associated with pancreatic cancer.“Keep searching for a solution, explore clinical trials,” Rae told PanCAN in 2016 when asked what advice she gives other patients fighting the disease. “I’m extremely grateful to be here today and I’m sending out powerful prayers to all of you.”Not only did Rae use her voice on behalf of the world’s toughest cancer, she attended local PurpleStride walks, championed for increased federal funding through PanCAN’s annual National Pancreatic Cancer Advocacy Day in Washington, D.C., and referenced the organization in numerous media interviews.“We must speak out loud and clear: Federal funds must be invested to develop more effective treatments and to find a simple, affordable detection test,” Rae told fellow PanCAN Advocacy Day participants in a letter she penned in 2013. “This disease is so frightening because it cannot be detected early enough. Effective treatments and early detection tools could save thousands and thousands of lives.”On behalf of Rae and all patients like her, PanCAN will continue to work diligently to double survival and improve patient outcomes.last_img read more

West Face accuses Israeli intelligence firm of covertly targeting employees

first_imgWest Face Capital Inc. has accused another Toronto private equity firm of hiring an Israeli intelligence firm linked with disgraced movie mogul Harvey Weinstein to covertly get confidential information from employees and elicit disparaging comments from a retired Ontario Superior Court judge.West Face filed a motion in Ontario court Tuesday seeking information obtained from Black Cube’s investigation of its staff and former workers. The parties will appear in court on Friday.It alleges Catalyst Capital Group Inc. used Black Cube, which is comprised of former intelligence officials, to launch illegal covert investigations against the company and former Ontario Superior Court Justice Frank Newbould in order to bolster a legal appeal.Catalyst is appealing a ruling by Newbould in August 2016 that dismissed its claim in the loss of a bidding war for wireless carrier Wind Mobile Corp.West Face alleged the Black Cube’s activities were undertaken “on false pretences, using lies, deception, false identities, and false offers of employment or investment.”“The purpose of these investigations was to manufacture evidence that could be used by Catalyst during the course of this appeal,” said the lengthy court filing.It claims Black Cube operators used lies and deception to entrap employees and Newbould to get damaging statements and information to discredit Newbould’s ruling.One “sting” against the retired judge was intended to bait Newbould into making anti-Semitic comments. Another was allegedly targeted at former West Face general counsel Alexander Singh.West Face said the behaviour “mirrors” Black Cube’s actions on behalf of Weinstein, who has been accused of sexual harassment.Weinstein hired Black Cube to get information on those working to expose allegations against him.The firm subsequently apologized for its work and pledged to donate proceeds to women’s groups.West Face said it has been unable to verify the accuracy and completeness of transcripts and recordings of Black Cube’s activities, including the surreptitious recordings with employees.“We are saddened that innocent people have been misled, intimidated, and emotionally impacted by this disreputable and unseemly conduct,” it stated in a news release.Neither Catalyst nor Black Cube could be reached for comment. The allegations haven’t been proven in court.The two private equity firms have been in a legal war for years.Earlier this month, Catalyst Capital sued West Face Capital and Anson Group Canada for $450 million after accusing the hedge fund and asset manager of allegedly spreading misinformation and launching a short-selling campaign against its publicly-traded subsidiary.last_img read more

Islamophobia in France On the Rise after Charlie Hebdo

Taroudant – The Collective Against Islamophobia in France (CCIF), the republic’s leading watchdog fighting Islamophobia, has released an annual report highlighting an alarming increase in discriminatory acts against Muslims and their places of worship.A month after the national gathering that followed the Charlie Hebdo attacks, the CCIF held its annual press conference on Wednesday, February 11, to present the figures and trends of Islamophobia in 2014 and a report on the phenomenon since January 7, 2015.In its annual report, the CCIF recorded a 70% increase in Islamophobic acts in January 2015 compared to the same period in 2014. The CCIF identified 764 Islamophobic acts in 2014, compared to 691 in 2013, an increase of 10.6%. The CCIF confirmed that an average of at least two cases of Islamophobia are identified every day by their services. Nearly 77% of the cases involved discrimination at work, school or an institutional setting. The report stated that “Islamophobia is currently deeply ingrained in the French culture.” The CCIF added that 81.5% of victims are women. They represent almost all of the victims of physical assault with 22 physical assaults in 2014, which is nearly two every month. “We note with disappointment and concern a huge gap between the official discourse that is reassuring and rallying, and the reality on the ground,” the report says.Lila Charef, the CCIF’s legal advisor, told Press TV that “Our biggest difficulty is that the state is simply inactive when it comes to Islamophobia. It refuses to intervene with even small measures, such as declarations from higher authorities that condemn specific acts of discrimination.”After the attacks of Charlie Hebdo, the prejudices and discrimination against Muslims have become stronger than ever and Muslim places of worships are being desecrated more frequently. read more

Sailing coach taught at YMCA

(Update)A local sailing coach accused of sexually assaulting young boys is spending the weekend in jail until his next court appearance.  And concern about his activities has spread beyond the clubs where Sean Hewson taught sailing.  It’s now reaching into the “Y” — where he was a lifesaving instructor.The YMCA of Hamilton-Burlington-Brantford says Hewson taught swimming and lifesaving for seven years at the Y —  much of the time at the Burlington Y but also at other YMCA pools in their area.They say there were never any complaints and he passed the mandatory criminal background checks — the latest just last year.But after seeing the news that Hewson had been arrested they called the Halton police.Jim Commerford/YMCA CEO: “First we reached out to Halton Police, to say we read the story. We realize this largely relates to his experience in sailing but you should be aware that he has worked for the YMCA and we’d like to support, will support, the police investigation however we can.”31-year-old Hewson from Ancaster taught sailing at the Burlington Sailing Club at Lasalle Park and lately the Bronte Harbour Yacht Club.Police have charged him with 16 counts of sexual assault accusing him of sexually assaulting four boys from the Burlington Club when they were between the ages of 13 and 16.Police say the incidents go as far back as 2003. And they expect more victims to come forward.The YMCA says it’s acting out of concern for the safety of children, and has suspended Hewson from his lifesaving instructor duties.It’s also writing to the families of people he taught swimming and lifesaving.Jim said: “And we will be preparing correspondence to be sent to them so that they are aware of the charges facing this, Mr. Hewson, and we recommend that if they do have any concerns or worries or complaints that they immediately contact Halton Police.”Hewson appeared in court today in Milton. He’s being held by the police until his next appearance on Tuesday. The Bronte Harbour Yacht Club has also put Hewson on a leave of absence. And it has scheduled a meeting with parents for next Wednesday. read more

French air traffic controllers end their strike after two days

first_imgFRENCH AIR TRAFFIC controllers have ended a two-day strike that was supposed to run till the weekend after marathon talks with the government, unions said.The strike, which stranded hundreds of passengers, was called off after the government recognised the “importance of investment in the sector,” said the Unsa-ICNA union which launched the protest.Stranded passengersSome 600 passengers were stranded today in Orly airport, south of Paris, an airport source said.They included about 200 people, most of whom had been due to travel with low cost airline Vueling, to Spain and Portugal and were forced to spend the night of Tuesday to Wednesday in Orly.The strike, which kicked off yesterday, was due to last until Sunday with some air traffic controllers protesting against what they say is a lack of sufficient funding for a sector in dire need of modernisation.But as union officials held talks with the government, there was already a sign of significant progress.ImprovementBefore the strike was called off, France’s civil aviation body predicted a “marked improvement” on Thursday and that “95 percent of the flights will function”.The body said around one in five flights going to and from several cities in southern France, or taking off from Paris to the south, Spain, Portugal, Morocco, Tunisia and Algeria, were cancelled today – the same situation as the previous day.The scores of flights cancelled Wednesday included those of Air France and budget carriers EasyJet and Ryanair.The strike has been blasted by airlines and trade groups, with the International Air Transport Association condemning “unions bent on stopping progress” at the height of the tourist season in France.What air traffic controllers wantAir traffic controllers involved in the action want airport fees for airlines to increase by 10 percent, but companies want them to go down and the government is caught in between.The SNCTA, the country’s biggest air traffic control union, decided not to go on strike following last-ditch negotiations with the government but has echoed mounting concerns that French air navigation tools are becoming dangerously obsolete.The system used in the country to enhance radar monitoring and for separation of air traffic dates back to the 1980s, and is due to be replaced by a new system.The tools used to control air traffic are also in need of change.According to the SNCTA, for instance, all radar screens in the Aix-en-Provence control centre in southern France were recently “urgently” changed after around 20 screens suddenly went blank over the space of 18 months.- © AFP, 2014Read: Ryanair cancels flights ahead of France’s air traffic control strike>last_img read more

RNS photo by Emily McFarlan Miller“This is our body,” he said, passing it to the person sitting next to him. Each person repeated the gesture before digging into a spread of food from a nearby restaurant.This gathering wasn’t just another group of friends soaking up the last days of summer outside.It was church.Root & Branch Church calls this service the Welcome Table. It’s part of a growing trend of dinner churches popping up across the country in churches in a number of denominations, conservative and progressive, urban and rural and everything in between.The dinner church movement sees gathering together for a meal itself as worship, rather than just another church potluck after worship.“It’s also really important to recognize that dinner churches are not a fundamentally new thing, this is not just like the latest cool iteration of church, and that eating together has been central to the church for the entirety of the church’s life,” said Kendall Vanderslice, author of “We Will Feast: Rethinking Dinner, Worship, and the Community of God.”Food and faith have gone together since God formed humans from the soil to enjoy all God made, according to Vanderslice.For Christians, the two also echo the Last Supper that Jesus shared with his disciples and the example of the early church.“The story of Jesus’ ministry is a ministry that takes place through meals,” she said. “It’s not just about sustenance, it’s about delight and it’s about joy. And it’s about forming community.”Still, there are a number of reasons Vanderslice believes the dinner church movement is growing now, particularly among millennials craving relationships and meaning. For one, she said, it fills a “profound need for community.”“I think really that loneliness pervades every generation, and I think that loneliness is in part because the church has lost its focus on community,” she said.Vanderslice began studying dinner churches in 2015 while in a graduate program in food studies at Boston University.She spent three months attending Thursday night dinner church gatherings at Simple Church outside Boston. By the time she finished writing her thesis, she’d learned about 30 similar gatherings.Pretty soon, she said, she lost count of the dinner churches starting every week, each unique to the needs of a specific community and context.“I think there’s no one-size-fits-all model that can be sort of plopped down into any context and work,” she said.Members and guests of Root & Branch Church pause for a moment of reflection during a “dinner church” service Aug. 25, 2019, in Palmer Square Park in Chicago. RNS photo by Emily McFarlan MillerSome dinner churches meet in restaurants. Others in gardens, growing the food they’ll eat together.Nearly all the dinner churches Vanderslice has encountered were inspired by St. Lydia’s in Brooklyn, a decade-old congregation in the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America.The Rev. Emily Scott founded the church after noticing how rarely New Yorkers gathered for a home-cooked meal, according to the Rev. Elsa Marty, who now pastors at St. Lydia’s.Believing that’s where connections are made, Scott started structuring services around a meal.First, St. Lydia’s met in an apartment. Then, it moved to an ELCA church building and a Zen center, before eventually landing in a storefront.Along the way, the church has shared its experience with other congregations around the country.“It’s just lovely to see how it’s blossoming in many different places around the country,” Marty said.These days, she said, St. Lydia’s twice-weekly dinner church services stretch over two hours. Those gatherings include singing and chanting, time for conversation “built into the heart of the service” over dinner, a brief sermon and responses from participants.They end with everybody cleaning up together.The church also has added monthly waffle church services geared toward families with children and some contemplative prayer services, according to the pastor.Some people come to dinner church because they are looking for something different from the church services they attended growing up. Others are interested in a service that engages all their senses. And some, Marty said, are attracted by the opportunity to be an active participant in the service.“You can’t sit in the back pew. … It’s a really engaged kind of service,” Marty said. “I think especially for young millennials that are so into their screens, this is real human interaction.”Members and guests of Root & Branch Church use their phones to read Scripture during part of a “dinner church” service Aug. 25, 2019, in Palmer Square Park in Chicago. RNS photo by Emily McFarlan MillerChicago’s Root & Branch, part of the Christian Church Disciples of Christ denomination, was inspired by St. Lydia’s when it started about six years ago, according to Pastor Tim Kim.As the congregation began to grow, Kim said, the church needed to find ways to make sure people still were able to share openly and get to know one another.It began alternating what it calls “All Together Church” in a community art space with Welcome Table services every other week, breaking into smaller groups and meeting in people’s homes.Kim said the congregation is composed of millennials who “often describe ourselves as church outsiders — people who wouldn’t feel like they fit or at home or belong in other church settings.”Some grew up in churches that taught harmful theologies or that hurt or rejected them for who they were, he said. Some just aren’t drawn to the structure or culture of more traditional church services. And some don’t necessarily call themselves Christian, but they’re interested in exploring big questions in community.To Kim, God is like a “mosaic of people.”“We see pieces of God in every face that we encounter, and that mosaic makes up a whole of who God is to us,” he said.Lauran Quist listens to the discussion during Root & Branch Church’s “dinner church” service Aug. 25, 2019, in Palmer Square Park in Chicago. RNS photo by Emily McFarlan MillerLauran Quist, who attended the gathering Sunday (Aug. 25) in Palmer Square Park, grew up going to church. But she didn’t always feel at home.The first time Quist attended a service at Root & Branch, she said, things were different. There was wine and food and no one was a stranger.And she liked that all were drawn into a discussion, rather than listening to a sermon.“When somebody is telling you how to have a faith, you may feel some guilt or some need to be like that, but it’s really not going to be authentic and it’s not going to be able to take real root in your life,” Quist said.Dorian Sitkoski, who has attended Root & Branch for five years, said those discussions appealed to her, too, because it “acknowledges that not everything is easy to understand.”“Sometimes you need to process through them and explore it and let your understanding evolve over time,” she said.Over dinner on Sunday, the group from Root & Branch chatted about upcoming travel, about apartment life, about their jobs.Later, group members pulled out their smartphones to read a Gospel passage from their screens about one of Jesus’ healing miracles and shared their responses. Finally, they passed around a bottle of wine and filled their cups, bookending the service with the elements of Communion.Before the meal and discussion began, however, they prayed.“For friends in a city where many walk alone, we give thanks.” Catholicism Share This!

first_imgMost Arizona Cardinals fans wrote off the team when theseason looked bleak with a 1-6 start. As coach KenWhisenhunt looked back on the season for evaluations, henoticed that’s when the team started to get stronger.“I think the thing that we learned about our football teamfrom sitting here a couple weeks after the season is thatour guys never gave up,” Whisenhunt told Arizona Sports620’s Doug and Wolf. “They believed in what we weredoing. And I think that anytime you have a team that ifyou can find ways to win in this league, that’s reallywhat it’s all about.” Comments   Share   Top Stories What Whisenhunt hopes for is that next year’s team willknow what they are capable of because most of the playersare returning.“What’s really exciting is that we went through as tough atime as we possibly could, and we were still able and turnthat around and get to that point,” Whisenhunt said. “Andthat bodes well for us because we’ve got so many guys thatunderstand that now. “And going into next year, we’re not going to have 51 newguys like we did this year. We’re going to have a lot ofthe same guys that know that and they’re going to be inhere in the offseason and we’re going to be working.” D-backs president Derrick Hall: Franchise ‘still focused on Arizona’ The shaky start took a discouraging turn when quarterbackKevin Kolb suffered a turf toe injury against theBaltimore Ravens in seventh week. However, John Skeltontook over and led the Cards to a 19-13 overtime winagainst the Rams. That was the first of four overtime winsduring the season. The wins were a bit messy, too, withArizona going into the second half trailing in seven ofthe eight wins.“I think it goes back to not only your beliefs in how youdo things, how you prepare, how you practice, but gettingyour players to believe that and execute it,” Whisenhuntsaid. “It ultimately comes down to being able to make aplay or two in a team that can turn a game around.”Those big plays happened often and in timely fashion.Patrick Peterson snapped the five-game losing streak on a99-yard punt return in overtime against the Rams, BeanieWells set a franchise mark of 228 yards a few weeks lateragainst the same St. Louis team, and O’Brien Schofieldwith two sacks against Cleveland. And, of course, LarryFitzgerald was Larry Fitzgerald with his clutch catches inthe last few games of the season.“If you just take a minute and think about all the youngplayers that were making some of these plays that werecritical to us having success in these games, it reallysets the table for the excitement of what we can do as weget together in the offseason,” Whisenhunt said.
