NEW DELHI: Following the huge outcry over comments by BJP leaders glorifying Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse, including by Pragya Singh Thakur who called him a “deshbhakt (patriot)”, Prime Minister Narendra Modi told a television channel on Friday: “I will never be able to forgive them for insulting Bapu.”On Thursday, Pragya Thakur had said: “Nathuram Godse was a deshbhakt (patriot), is a ‘deshbhakt’ and will remain a ‘deshbhakt’. People calling him a terrorist should instead look within, such people will be given a fitting reply in the election.” This was followed by more comments from three more leaders, Anant Kumar Hegde, Nalin Kumar Kateel and Anil Saumitra. The BJP tweeted PM Modi as saying in an interview to the channel: “The comments on Gandhi and Godse are deplorable, disgusting and are not language fit for civilised society. Those who say such things should think 100 times. It is a different issue that they have apologized, but I will not be able to forgive them from my heart.” The ruling BJP Friday launched damage control after a rash of comments in favour of Mahatma Gandhi’s assassin Nathuram Godse, just two days before the final round of voting for the national election. Pragya Singh Thakur, Union Minister Anant Kumar Hegde and Nalin Kumar Kateel, all contesting the election, have been asked for an explanation within 10 days, BJP president Amit Shah said in a series of tweets on Thursday. “These comments have nothing to do with the party. All three have apologized, but these comments are against the ideology of the BJP and are being referred to the disciplinary committee,” Amit Shah tweeted. Friday, Nalin Kumar Kateel, a BJP lawmaker compared Godse with former prime minister Rajiv Gandhi. Another Karnataka parliamentarian, Union Minister Anant Kumar Hegde, tweeted that “seven decades later, the condemned were being heard”. Both the tweets have disappeared from their Twitter timelines. Anant Kumar Hegde put out a message claiming his account had been breached.
OSU football coach Urban Meyer answers questions from the media at the 2014 Big Ten Media Days July 29 in Chicago.Credit: Tim Moody / Lantern sports editorIt’s long been understood that championships are not won or lost behind the podium.That being said, there is, however, plenty that fans can glean from what a coach or player might say at events like the Big Ten Media Days, which took place on Monday and Tuesday in Chicago.Here are five things that fans can take away from the comments of the Ohio State representatives who took part in the 2014 Big Ten Media Days.1. The OSU defensive line has historic potentialFollowing breakout seasons from senior defensive lineman Michael Bennett and sophomore defensive lineman Joey Bosa, the OSU defensive front could be one of the best coach Urban Meyer has ever laid his eyes on.“2006 was our best defensive line,” Meyer said, referring back to his time at the University of Florida. “If they all perform and stay healthy, this one could be on that level.”For reference, that 2006 defensive line that Meyer referred to boasted defensive end Jarvis Moss, the 17th overall pick of the 2007 NFL Draft to the Denver Broncos, and defensive end Derrick Harvey, the 8th overall pick of the 2008 NFL Draft to the Jacksonville Jaguars, both of whom helped Florida to beat OSU in the 2007 National Championship Game.If Meyer believes it, Bennett does too.“The fact that coach Meyer said it means that it’s pretty real,” Bennett said following Meyer’s comparison. “But as much as we have the potential to be it, potential doesn’t mean anything if you don’t do it, so we have to keep working.”2. Braxton Miller is the undoubted face of the Buckeyes and has a lot on his mind heading into his final seasonAs if there was any doubt who the most important player on the OSU roster was heading into Monday morning’s press conferences at Big Ten Media Day, Meyer removed all doubt.Without prompting or without a single question tossed his way, Meyer’s first comment addressed his senior quarterback: Braxton Miller.“Our quarterback, I know I’ll get asked that question, is ready to go,” Meyer said. “He’s full-speed, in the best shape of his life.”While Miller may be the face of Big Ten football, having won both the Big Ten offensive player and quarterback of the year the past two seasons, the quarterback feels as if injuries derailed what he believes might have been a Heisman-caliber 2013 season.“It could’ve been a different situation at the end of the season,” Miller said. “I fell off the Heisman radar, injury wise. That’s what happens, you miss a couple of games and your name gets quickly pushed aside.”Health may not necessarily be in his control, but Miller is certainly using last season’s happenings, as well as added talent around him, to push his name back into the national limelight.“I’ve been in the Heisman race the last two years, so I have to take advantage of what we’ve got in front of me this year,” Miller said. “If I’m in the Heisman situation again, hopefully, I get to walk across that podium and accept that award.”Ultimately, however, Miller said that following his tumultuous, four-year career at OSU, rather than being remembered as a Heisman Trophy winner, his goal is more team based.“Being in the situations I overcame as a freshman and sophomore, it’s not easy,” Miller said. “I just want to go out with a nice run this year and be known as a champion.”3. Miller already knows the targets that could elevate him to those Heisman heightsWith the Heisman talk lingering around No. 5, Miller seems to have developed quite the chemistry with a few potential receiving targets, starting with senior tight end Jeff Heuerman.“Them guys is 6’6, 260, man, you know you can’t miss those targets,” Miller said. “They’re a mismatch for any linebacker, any corner, any safety, so I’m going to make sure they get that ball early this year.”While the tight ends seem to be the primary targets for Miller, and therefore for opposing defenders as well, Miller’s favorite wideouts seem to be under-the-radar players who haven’t quite made an impact for the Buckeyes thus far.Miller thinks that some of his receivers will emerge from the bottom of the depth chart and become playmakers for the Buckeyes this fall.“Corey Smith, Mike Thomas, the guys on the outside, ” Miller said. “Those are the guys who are going to make some people like, ‘wow, where have these guys been at?” and it’s going to be fun.”Miller isn’t alone in his belief in his receivers, however.Coach Meyer, long a detractor of the receivers at OSU, finally seems to be confident in the pass-catchers to the outside.“I’ll be disappointed now if the receivers aren’t able to carry their own weight,” Meyer said.4. An unproven offensive line remains a huge concern for the BuckeyesA season after losing four starting offensive linemen, one of whom was a captain, the Buckeyes are searching for answers on the line.In his opening remarks to the media on Monday Meyer made it clear that the protection up-front is alarming.“The offensive line is No. 1,” Meyer said of his concerns heading into the new season. “I was a little disappointed with what happened in the spring. We just didn’t see the growth we would like to see.”If the offensive line is to grow from a weakness to a strength, who will lead the charge?Meyer believes it is the veterans that will ultimately decide the direction of the group.“Chase Farris, Antonio Underwood, Jacoby Boren, the new guy from Alabama Chad Lindsay, Darryl Baldwin… there’s a common theme there,” Meyer said, listing the offensive linemen who’ve yet to make a true impact for the Buckeyes. “They’re all nice players, nice people, who’ve been around for a while and haven’t played, so we have to get something out of them.”5. Despite glaring uncertainty, hope springs eternal for the new OSU pass defenseRanked 112th out of the 125 FBS teams in terms of pass defense, the OSU defensive backfield was a disappointment for the Buckeyes last season, calling for a revamping.Meyer brought in former Arkansas defensive coordinator Chris Ash to oversee the defensive remodeling, and thus far Meyer seemed to be pleased with the complete overhaul.“Chris Ash has done an admirable job installing a brand new pass defense,” Meyer said in his Monday presser. “We completely have blown up and started from scratch an area that we were not very strong in.”Bennett has seen the merits of the move as well, but feels that the play of the defensive backfield is impacted by the defensive front as well.“I feel like we’re a lot more aggressive,” Bennett explained. “The DB’s are a lot more aggressive. The d-line needs to get to the quarterback more or else we’re going hang the DB’s out to dry.”With the new defensive schemes of Ash under wraps and a potentially top-rated defensive line ready to contribute, the defensive backfield may be headed in the right direction, but is still a giant unknown heading into training camp.
A RUSSIAN APPEALS court today ordered the release of one member of punk band Pussy Riot after turning her two-year prison sentence into a suspended term but kept two others in jail with unchanged verdicts.The judge at the Moscow city court ordered the release of Yekaterina Samutsevich, 30, after giving her a two-year suspended prison camp term for performing a protest stunt against President Vladimir Putin in Russia’s main church.However the two-year prison camp sentences of Maria Alyokhina, 24, and Nadezhda Tolokonnikova, 22, were upheld by the court.Judge Larisa Polyakova ruled “to leave Alyokhina and Tolokonnikova’s sentences without changes” while bowing to the appeal filed on behalf of Samutsevich, who was judged not to have taken actual involvement in the “punk prayer” performance.The judge stressed that Samutsevich could be jailed again if she “violates several restrictions established by law or commits some other crime.”- © AFP, 2012Read: Putin hails Pussy Riot jail terms – report>
In the middle of 2011, a leaked video captured Nokia chief Stephen Elop talking about Meltemi, a mobile OS project they’d managed to keep secret. Nokia was working on Meltemi as an option for the kind of low-end phones that have made the company such a dominant force in emerging markets around the world. Now, however, they’re pulling the plug — just as they did with Meego after announcing the new Windows Phone partnership with Microsoft last year.Rumors first began surfacing last month that Meltemi’s end was near. With Nokia’s profits dropping and belt-tightening the order of the day, several research and development projects had been called into question. With Nokia set on sticking with S40 as its platform of choice for phones like the Asha Touch line pictured above, Meltemi was deemed expendable. The unreleased, Linux-based OS isn’t the only thing Nokia is cutting. There are also some 10,000 jobs on the line, with talks currently under way in Finland to figure out who stays and who goes.It certainly looks as though things are going to get worse before they get better for Nokia. Recent reports suggest that the Lumia phones aren’t selling as well as hoped, and sales are no doubt being hampered by the recent announcement that Windows Phone 8 is on the way this fall and that current phones won’t be receiving the update to Microsoft’s next-gen mobile OS.It’s important, then, for Nokia to narrow its focus. As nice as it would have been to see the company bring Meltemi to market on at least one device, it simply can’t spare the necessary human and financial resources to make that happen right now.More at Reuters
Une espèce de singes réapparait grâce à la protection des pandas Depuis vingt ans, le rhinopithèque, un petit singe reconnaissable grâce à son nez qui semble avoir été coupé, avait disparu de la région du Sichuan. Mais les primates auraient bénéficié des mesures de protection mises en place pour sauver le panda géant de l’extinction. De nombreux rhinopithèques ont en effet été aperçus dans la réserve de Jiuzhaigou, créée pour les pandas.Les autorités chinoises ont réalisé beaucoup d’efforts pour assurer la protection du panda géant, et ce plan de sauvegarde de l’espèce menacée aurait aussi été profitable aux rhinopithèques, dont toute la population vit en Asie du sud-est. La réserve de Jiuzhaigou, a été créée en 1978, et certaines parties du site sont accessibles au public. C’est dans l’une de ces zones que près de 200 singes auraient été aperçus récemment par un habitant de la région, rapporte le site Green et Vert. L’homme a averti les responsables de la réserve de cette découverte, et ces derniers ont retrouvé après plusieurs jours de recherche, de nombreux rhinopithèques. Hélas, aucune photo des primates n’a été prise. Il n’existe donc aucune preuve de leur réapparition dans le Sichuan, où ils n’avaient plus été vus depuis vingt ans. Certains remettent alors en doute la découverte des gardiens de la réserve, mais l’on imagine qu’ils vont à nouveau partir à la recherche des singes, et cette fois, prendre avec eux un appareil photo.Le 23 avril 2011 à 20:01 • Emmanuel Perrin

Former first lady Laura Bush has called the separation policy “cruel” and “immoral” while GOP Sen. Susan Collins expressed concern about it and a former adviser to Trump questioned using the policy to pressure Democrats on immigration legislation.Trump continued to cast blame on Democrats Monday, as he detoured from planned remarks on U.S. space policy to defend his administration’s policies. “I say it’s very strongly the Democrats’ fault,” he said at the White House.“The United States will not be a migrant camp and it will not be a refugee holding facility,” he added. “Not on my watch.”“We are doing none of those things. We are enforcing the laws passed by Congress,” she said in an appearance before the National Sheriffs’ Association in New Orleans. Like Trump, she called on Congress to reform immigration laws.Nearly 2,000 children were separated from their families over a six-week period in April and May after Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced a new “zero-tolerance” policy that refers all cases of illegal entry for criminal prosecution. U.S. protocol prohibits detaining children with their parents because the children are not charged with a crime and the parents are.Nielsen said that releasing parents with their children amounts to a “get out of jail free card” policy for those in the country illegally.Speaking at the same conference, Sessions echoed Nielsen’s defense of the policy, and called on Congress to act.“We do not want to separate parents from their children,” Sessions said. “If we build the wall, if we pass legislation to end the lawlessness, we won’t face these terrible choices.”Trump asserted Monday that children “are being used by some of the worst criminals on earth” as a way to enter the United States. He tweeted: “Has anyone been looking at the Crime taking place south of the border,” calling it “historic.”Criticism is rising from both sides of the political aisle. In a guest column for The Washington Post Sunday, Mrs. Bush made some of the strongest comments yet from a Republican.“I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart,” she wrote. She compared it to the internment of Japanese-Americans during World War II, which she called “one of the most shameful episodes in U.S. history.” Posted: June 19, 2018 Read my statement on the Department of Homeland Security immigration policy here: https://t.co/aA3TjX55Bj— Rep. Duncan Hunter (@Rep_Hunter) June 18, 2018___AP writers Colleen Long, Zeke Miller, and Ken Thomas in Washington and Kevin McGill in New Orleans contributed. Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen rejected criticism accusing her department of inhuman and immoral actions. Monday, DHS Secretary Nielsen took questions to clarify some of the misleading talking points that have arisen regarding the Trump administration’s immigration policy. The Trump administration says they are not separating all immigrant families, but that it must be done in cases where they need to detain the adult for a crime. President Trump weighed in on the controversy over separation of illegal immigrant families at the US-Mexico border today saying, “The United States will not be a migrant camp. And it will not be a refugee holding facility. It won’t be. You look at what’s happening in Europe, you look at what is happening in other places, we cannot allow that to happen to the United States, not on my watch.” I live in a border state. I appreciate the need to enforce and protect our international boundaries, but this zero-tolerance policy is cruel. It is immoral. And it breaks my heart.https://t.co/he1uw1E96A— Laura Bush (@laurawbush) June 18, 2018 AP Updated: 4:42 PM AP, 00:00 00:00 spaceplay / pause qunload | stop ffullscreenshift + ←→slower / faster ↑↓volume mmute ←→seek . seek to previous 12… 6 seek to 10%, 20% … 60% XColor SettingsAaAaAaAaTextBackgroundOpacity SettingsTextOpaqueSemi-TransparentBackgroundSemi-TransparentOpaqueTransparentFont SettingsSize||TypeSerif MonospaceSerifSans Serif MonospaceSans SerifCasualCursiveSmallCapsResetSave SettingsThe issue has sparked outrage from both democrats and republicans.

Bush Presidential Center (@TheBushCenter) June 18, 2018Underscoring the emotional tension, first lady Melania Trump, who has tended to stay out of contentious policy debates, waded into the issue. Her spokeswoman said that Mrs. Trump believes “we need to be a country that follows all laws,” but also one “that governs with heart.”“Mrs. Trump hates to see children separated from their families and hopes both sides of the aisle can finally come together to achieve successful immigration reform,” spokeswoman Stephanie Grisham said.RELATED STORY: House minority leader Nancy Pelosi visits US-Mexico border and tours illegal immigrant detention centersThe signs of splintering GOP support are spreading.The Rev. Franklin Graham, a longtime Trump ally, called the policy “disgraceful.” Several religious groups, including some conservative ones, have pushed to stop the practice of separating immigrant children from their parents.Former Trump adviser Anthony Scaramucci said Monday on CNN that it “doesn’t feel right” for the Trump administration to blame Democrats and use the issue as a way of pressuring Democrats into negotiating on a Republican immigration bill.Republican Sen. Susan Collins of Maine said she favors tighter border security, but expressed deep concerns about the child separation policy.“What the administration has decided to do is to separate children from their parents to try to send a message that if you cross the border with children, your children are going to be ripped away from you,” she said. “That’s traumatizing to the children who are innocent victims, and it is contrary to our values in this country.”House Democratic leader Nancy Pelosi said the policy “leaves a dark stain on our nation.”“Ripping vulnerable little children away from their parents is an utter atrocity that debases America’s values and our legacy as a beacon of hope, opportunity and freedom,” she said Monday.Trump plans to meet with House Republicans on Tuesday to discuss pending immigration legislation amid the election-season debate over what has been one of his favorite issues. The House is expected to vote this week on a bill pushed by conservatives that may not have enough support to pass, and a compromise measure with key proposals supported by the president. The White House has said Trump would sign either one.Both House proposals face broad opposition from Democrats, and even if a bill does pass, the closely divided Senate seems unlikely to go along.Trump’s former chief strategist said Republicans would face steep consequences for pushing the compromise bill because it provides a path to citizenship for young “Dreamer” immigrants brought to the country illegally as children. Steve Bannon argued that that effort risks alienating Trump’s political base and could lead to election losses in November, when Republicans hope to preserve their congressional majorities. June 19, 2018 SAN DIEGO (KUSI) – Tuesday, San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer released a statement on the controversy surrounding parents being separated from their children after entering the United States illegally.Later Tuesday evening, Congressman Juan Vargas (D-Chula Vista) yelled, “Don’t you have kids?” at President Trump as he departed the US capitol following his meeting with the House GOP caucus on immigration. The congressman’s actions can be seen in the video posted below.

More than $100,000 was raised at this year’s Dozer Day and that money will go to local children’s charitable groups. Grant applications will be accepted until June 15 at http://nutterfoundation.org.The Nutter family started its heavy construction business in 1992 and Nutter Corporation is at 7211 N.E. 43rd Ave. The company does excavation, grading and underground utilities; see them online at http://nuttercorp.com.Dozer Day, where kids are king on giant machines, just keeps getting more popular.An estimated 24,600 folks of all sizes got down in the dirt over the weekend at the 77-acre Cemex/Fisher Quarry at 192nd Avenue, just off state Highway 14. That’s a record for the 7-year-old event.The Nutter Foundation puts on the big show with help from dozens of sponsors and 900 volunteers.The pipe castle was a huge attraction at the Saturday-Sunday extravaganza. And why not? Kids could crawl through five pipes and three manholes. There were some portholes to spy through, too.“Overall, it’s 75 tons of concrete,” said Ron Sparks of Hockinson. He is the West Coast sales manager for Hanson Pipe & Precast. It took three days to put the play structure together, with help from Campbell Crane and Nutter Corporation.
DAMASCUS, Va. — Authorities believe the driver who plowed into dozens of hikers marching in a Virginia mountain town parade suffered from a medical condition and did not cause the crash intentionally, an emergency official said Sunday.Officials did not have a formal confirmation or any specifics on the condition, but based on the accounts of authorities and witnesses on the scene, they are confident the issue was medical, according to Pokey Harris, Washington County’s director of emergency management. “There is no reason to believe this was intentional,” she said.In what witnesses called a frantic scene at the parade, about 50 to 60 people suffered injuries ranging from critical to superficial Saturday. No fatalities were reported. Three of the worst injured were flown by helicopter to area hospitals.Two people were kept at hospitals overnight, but their injuries were not critical as of Sunday, Harris said. “For the most part, everyone was treated and released,” she said.The crash happened around 2:10 p.m. Saturday during the Hikers Parade at the Trail Days festival, an annual celebration of the Appalachian Trail in Damascus, near the Tennessee state line about a half-hour drive east of Bristol.
After days of scientific subcommittees, the North Pacific Fishery Management Council had its first round of meetings Wednesday in Nome. The Council heard reports from fisheries across the North Pacific.Download AudioWhen it comes to Bering Sea pollock, catches remain flat. Glenn Merrill, an Assistant Regional Administrator for the Council, said this year’s catch is “almost identical to what it was last year at this time.”But the Chinook bycatch within the pollock fishery is higher than last year’s rates—a major issue as subsistence fishermen along the Yukon and Kuskokwim rivers face unprecedented restrictions in anticipation of one of the worst king salmon runs on record.Merrill reported, “The total Chinook salmon bycatch last year at this time last year was 8,237 fish. And the current Chinook salmon bycatch is 11,536. The rates are slightly higher this year for that same metric tonnage.”Merrill also said, halibut bycatch is also higher—by about 12-percent—this year.On the Russian side of the Strait, pollock fisheries are in full swing as well. Coast Guard Capt. Phillip Thorne said the Russian pollock fishery opened on May 15 of this year. Seven vessels are operating within 20 nautical miles of the maritime boundary line. Thorne said the Coast Guard patrolled the line May 29 through 31 and is continuing to send out patrol ships and aircraft as the season progresses.As for other species in the Bering Sea, snow crab were slightly down. Karla Bush with the Alaska Department of Fish and Game said the season ended about two weeks earlier than it had in the past.When the floor opened for public comment, representatives from At-Sea Processors Association, United States Seafood, and Glacier Fish Company asked the Council to reapportion 100 metric tons of halibut bycatch for this year. The representatives said the measure would help “maximize” catches of yellowfin sole and cod. The representatives said fisheries could enter a voluntary agreement to capture 60-percent of the reapportion and leave 40-percent in the water for future savings. The Council said it will examine this request on Saturday at 1:00 pm.The Council continues its meetings in Nome today at the Mini Convention Center. Today’s two topics are the Observer Program for Tendering and Electronic Monitoring.
Indian Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) personnel hold candles and pay tribute to their colleagues in Hyderabad on 15 February the day after an attack on a paramilitary Central Reserve Police Force (CRPF) convoy in the Lethpora area of Kashmir. Photo: AFPUN secretary general Antonio Guterres on Tuesday called on India and Pakistan to take immediate steps to defuse tensions and offered to help broker a solution if both sides agree.The two countries have been locked in a diplomatic clash following a suicide attack on 14 February in Kashmir that killed 40 Indian security personnel, triggering counter-operations by Indian forces in the area.“We are deeply concerned at the increasing tensions between the two countries,” said UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric.Guterres “stresses the importance of both sides to exercise maximum restraint and take immediate steps” to de-escalate, while also offering to mediate “should both sides ask,” said Dujarric.Pakistan’s foreign minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi appealed to Guterres to step in to defuse tensions, in a letter seen by AFP.“It is imperative to take steps for de-escalation. The United Nations must step in to defuse tensions,” said the letter sent on Monday.The attack was claimed by Pakistan-based Islamist group Jaish-e-Mohammed (JeM), but the foreign minister insisted that “attributing it to Pakistan even before investigations is absurd.”In response to the rising tensions, France, Britain and the United States were considering a new push at the Security Council to place Masood Azhar, the leader of JeM, on the UN terror list, but faced opposition from China, diplomats said.China has twice blocked—in 2016 and 2017 — attempts to put the JeM leader on the blacklist. The group itself was added to the terror list in 2001.Kashmir has been split between India and Pakistan since independence from Britain in 1947. Both countries claim the former Himalayan kingdom in full and have fought two wars over it.India has long accused Pakistan of harboring militants who launch attacks on its soil.Pakistan’s UN ambassador Maleeha Lodhi met with Guterres and with the president of the Security Council to appeal for action, warning that a flareup in Kashmir could undermine peace efforts in Afghanistan.“The escalation in the subcontinent poses a threat to prospects for peace in Afghanistan,” Lodhi told AFP.The United States is holding talks with the Taliban on ending 17 years of war.US envoy Zalmay Khalilzad’s talks also involve Pakistan, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates, the three countries that recognized the Taliban regime in Kabul before the US-led coalition toppled it following the 11 September, 2001 attacks.
Stay on target Less than a year after unveiling its integrated solar roofing solution, Tesla has completed its first product installations—on employee homes.Installations at the homes of Tesla co-founders Elon Musk and JB Straubel—the first Solar Roof customers—are already generating energy.Unlike most solar-powered houses today, which feature slabs of paneling, Tesla’s glass tiles (available in four conventional-looking designs) are conceived to look indistinguishable from traditional roofing materials.“Adopting solar has historically required a degree of aesthetic compromise,” the company said in its second quarter earnings update. “But Solar Roof provides clean energy from a better-looking roof.”Tuscan Solar Roof (via Tesla)And, in most cases, it’s more affordable: “It ultimately pays for itself by reducing or eliminating a home’s electricity bill,” Tesla promised, supporting its claim with a warranty for the lifetime of the house, “or infinity, whichever comes first.”(Power and weatherization warranties, meanwhile, are good for 30 years.)Pricing depends on house square footage and what portion of the roof you want covered; the estimated cost includes materials, installation, and removal of the old covering.

The state of Quintana Roo is one of the states they say will likely see thunderstorms combined with high daytime temperatures.They say that tropical wave number 32 in southern Baja California Sur and tropical wave 33 in the southeast are areas with the greatest instability. They report intense rain storms for Veracruz, Oaxaca and Chiapas, and very strong storms in areas of Durango, Sinaloa, Nayarit, Jalisco, Michoacán, Guerrero, Zacatecas and Guanajuato.Strong thunderstorms are forecast for Chihuahua, Aguascalientes, Colima, Queretaro, Hidalgo, Puebla, Tlaxcala, State of Mexico, Mexico City, Morelos, Tabasco, Campeche, Yucatan and Quintana Roo with daytime temperatures of between 35C and 40C.The meteorological service adds that Tropical Storm Norman has developed from Tropical Depression 16-E in the Pacific during the early morning hours of Tuesday. The system is located 775 kilometers southwest of Cabo San Lucas, Baja California Sur, with winds of 95 km/h, gusts of 110 km/h.In the Atlantic, a small low pressure system has formed in association with a tropical wave. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration says additional development is anticipated over the next several days that could see the development of a tropical depression.Historically, the months of September and October are the most active in the Mexican Caribbean, however, there are yet to be any major developments.Roberto Vargas Arzate, director of Civil Protection says that Quintana Roo remains vulnerable to the formation of hurricanes even though canicula, the hottest time of year, has come to an official end. He says that that although so far the state has been “benevolent”, it’s important to not lower your guard.Vargas Arzate notes that in the past, September and October are the months when major hurricanes have hit the region including Gilberto (September 10, 1988) and Wilma, (October 21, 2005), however, an update from The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts a quieter than average hurricane season for the Atlantic.

The program for development will include a research consortium of leading radiation oncology centers and clinicians, including the University Medical Center Utrecht (the Netherlands).The establishment of the consortium marks the next step in the collaboration between Elekta and Philips. The consortium’s mission will be to merge precision radiation delivery with MRI in a single MRI-guided radiation therapy system. This will enable doctors to achieve exceptional soft tissue imaging during radiation therapy and to adapt treatment delivery in real-time for extremely precise cancer treatments.”Bringing the superior soft tissue imaging of MRI and precise radiotherapy together in one device could potentially revolutionize cancer care,” says Tomas Puusepp, president and CEO of Elekta. “The need to maximize therapeutic radiation on the target, while minimizing the exposure of healthy tissue, is entirely driven by the best interests of the patient — they deserve the best chance for a cure and an improved quality of life. Elekta and Philips are leaders in the global healthcare community with a complete spectrum of expertise to fulfill this vision.””Cancer is a major global disease that we hope to control with more targeted treatments,” says Gene Saragnese, CEO Imaging Systems at Philips Healthcare. “MRI is emerging in oncology applications because of its excellent real-time 3-D visualization of soft tissue. Together with our partners, all leaders in radiation therapy delivery, we are convinced that the integrated MRI-guided radiation therapy system has the potential to become a game changer in cancer care on a global scale.”Working with University Medical Center Utrecht, the companies have built and tested a prototype system that integrates a linear accelerator and a 1.5T MRI system. The success of early tests has enabled the project to move to the next phase of development and testing by a select group of consortium partners.”We are proud and excited about this project,” adds Jan Lagendijk, department of radiotherapy, University Medical Center Utrecht. “Elekta, Philips and my department have strived for over a decade to make this possible. Through real-time imaging of both tumors and organs at risk, an integrated MRI-guided radiation therapy system would enable us to see more precisely than ever what we treat, and irradiate just the tumor as it moves in the body during treatment. This could potentially bring significant benefits to patients and overall healthcare economics.”Radiotherapy is one of the primary modalities used to treat cancer, either as a standalone treatment or used with other modalities such as chemotherapy. The technique involves identifying cancerous tissue and irradiating it with high energy radiation beams in a way that maximizes sparing of healthy tissue near the tumor. Radiation therapy delivered by linear accelerators and medical imaging already play an essential role in treatment planning, delivery and after care, and is a proven cost-effective and safe method for treating patients with cancer.For more information: www.elekta.com, www.philips.com/newscenter FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.
