Report on Regional Health Authorities Review Being Finalised

first_imgStory Highlights The Ministry of Health is in the process of finalising a report from a review of the four regional health authorities, which will be the subject of stakeholder consultations during the 2018/19 fiscal year. The review, which was led by a team from the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), looked at the authorities’ structure and performance, and proposes specific reforms which will be pivotal to the Government’s strategic plan for the public health sector. Dr. Tufton said the strategic plan is aimed at advancing the sector over the next 10 to 30 years through the completion of a number of critical supporting studies and reports that address several key areas. The Ministry of Health is in the process of finalising a report from a review of the four regional health authorities, which will be the subject of stakeholder consultations during the 2018/19 fiscal year.The review, which was led by a team from the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO), looked at the authorities’ structure and performance, and proposes specific reforms which will be pivotal to the Government’s strategic plan for the public health sector.This was announced by Portfolio Minister, Dr. the Hon. Christopher Tufton, during his 2018/19 Sectoral Debate presentation in the House of Representatives on Tuesday (June 5).Dr. Tufton said the strategic plan is aimed at advancing the sector over the next 10 to 30 years through the completion of a number of critical supporting studies and reports that address several key areas.Another component of the plan, the Minister informed, is the commissioning of a needs assessment study for five hospitals, which is being conducted by the United Nations Office for Project Services (UNOPS).The beneficiary institutions are the Spanish Town, May Pen, Mandeville, St. Ann’s Bay and Kingston Public hospitals.The study will provide recommendations for the facilities’ upgrading and/or expansion to determine how best the healthcare infrastructure can be networked and overhauled to address future challenges.“These studies will… make a determination as to how we operate (in terms of, for example) where we add beds and operating theatres in order to optimise the infrastructure that is available. We are deficient now, and this will add some value to that process. These (studies) are going to be critical to the (strategic) plan, and we are hoping that by mid-year, we will have the framework of that plan,” he stated.Dr. Tufton advised further that a report on the status of the sector’s information systems has also been completed. The document, which was facilitated under a technical cooperation agreement with the PAHO/World Health Organization (WHO), will form part of the strategic plan.Meanwhile, a road map for healthcare financing has been established and a report on the status of the national health insurance scheme, in this regard, is being completed. The report is expected to be ready within two months.last_img read more

Oil Cargo Loading Halted at Ras Lanuf amid Fresh Conflicts

first_imgThe Malta-flagged tanker Seadelta, which was due to load 781,000 barrels of crude oil from storage tanks at Libya’s port of Ras Lanuf, has been withdrawn to a‎ safe distance offshore after a fresh outbreak of fighting near the port, according to the country’s National Oil Corporation (NOC).NOC chairman Mustafa Sanalla said that the move was made as a precautionary measure and the board were in a meeting with the heads of operating companies in oil crescent area.“We‎ understand the port of Ras Lanuf itself has not been affected by the fighting so far, though the situation is in flux,” Sanalla added.The crude oil cargo, which was expected to continue today, is due to be transported aboard the 113,000 dwt tanker to Italy.Additionally, NOC said a crude oil storage‎ tank at Es Sidra oil terminal, which was previously damaged as a result of conflicts, was set on fire during fighting yesterday morning. The fire was extinguished later during the day, and Sanalla said that they “hope to resume normal operations at all oil ports in the Oil Crescent” today.Furthermore, NOC called for the immediate reopening of the pipelines in Rayayina which connect the Sharara and El Feel oil fields in southwestern Libya with the Zawia refinery and Mellitah complex in the west of Tripoli.The financial loss to the country as a result of the stoppages, which started in November 2014 and April 2015, respectively, was estimated to be over USD 27 billion.NOC said that it could increase production from the two fields by 250,000 b/d within the end of the year, and by 365,000 b/d by the middle of next year if the pipelines were opened.“We can have oil production back up to 600,000 b/d within a month, 900,000 b/d by the end of the year, and 1.2 million b/d within twelve months,” said Sanalla.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

Indigenous police chief calls for governments to implement MMIWG recommendations

first_imgMONTREAL — The head of the First Nations Chiefs of Police Association is calling on Ottawa and Quebec to address the chronic underfunding of Indigenous police forces outlined in this week’s report of a national public inquiry.Dwayne Zacharie says the lack of funding for First Nations police forces is a long-standing problem that needs to end.“First Nations communities deserve to have the same service that everyone else is getting,” said Zacharie, who is also the chief Peacekeeper for the Mohawk community of Kahnawake on Montreal’s South Shore.“For that, we require proper resourcing, whether it’s funding or human resources, meaning bodies to go out and do it.”A supplementary report from the inquiry into murdered and missing Indigenous women and girls dealing specifically with Quebec noted that the province’s 22 independent Indigenous police forces are the most of any province.But the report said “chronic underfunding” has resulted in problems, including recruitment and retention issues, a lack of female and Indigenous officers, difficulty in accessing training and poor communications between departments.“The national inquiry has also noted that Indigenous police forces have a chronic shortage of human resources and training,” it noted.High turnover rates mean that the complex job of policing Indigenous communities often falls to young and inexperienced officers with only a few months on the job, it said.The report said some of the problems stem from a complex funding agreement between the communities and the federal and provincial governments, which must be renegotiated every three to five years.This “makes it difficult, and sometimes impossible, to implement plans and strategies beyond a three-year time frame,” it notes. Zacharie said the problem is that First Nations police are often viewed as “second-class” forces, even though their officers graduate from the same police schools.He said that while the federal government recently promised to ensure the funding agreements would become permanent, it’s hard to be sure until First Nations police forces are declared an essential service — something he urges Ottawa to do.“We need to get more advanced training, we need the resources to do more, to give our communities the services we deserve,” he said.Lyle Cox, an inspector with the Eeyou Eenou police force that serves Cree communities of northern Quebec, agreed that First Nations policing needs to be made an essential service.“It is questionable for us to know if we can make a career out of policing and retire, because we never know if the (First Nations Policing Program) will be renewed with the governments,” he said by email.The report issued a number of recommendations related to Indigenous police forces.These included increased long-term funding, better co-ordination between police forces, better training for police cadets on the socio-cultural realities of Indigenous communities and access to full training for Indigenous officers.Michel LeRoux, whose son died while working for an Indigenous police force, said the changes can’t come soon enough.LeRoux’s 26-year-old son, Thierry LeRoux, was killed in the line of duty as he responded to a domestic call in Lac-Simon, about 500 kilometres from Montreal in Quebec’s Abitibi region. He was shot in February 2016 by a man who then took his own life.LeRoux said his son and partner were the only ones on duty, which forced them to enter a dangerous situation alone, with the nearest backup 40 minutes away. Their radios didn’t allow them to call for help directly, meaning the message would have had to pass through another person, LeRoux said.“This lack of financing means they’re ill-equipped, don’t have all the training they need, aren’t numerous enough, and the communications to get reinforcements are worse the farther away you are,” he said in a phone interview.After his son’s death, LeRoux and three of his son’s former colleagues started a foundation in Thierry’s name, which helps to fund sporting and educational opportunities for youth in the Val-d’Or region as well as in Lac-Simon. He said the police force also changed its policies regarding staff levels and communication.He believes the system failed not only his son but also the 22-year-old gunman. “I hope we don’t wait to lose other people before making the effort we need to ensure it doesn’t happen again,” he said. Pierre Saint-Antoine, a spokesman for Quebec’s police academy, says the school is taking the report seriously and is working hard to increase the number of Indigenous officers and improve their training.“There are clearly still things to improve, and we will reflect with our Indigenous partners on what needs to be done,” he said in a phone interview.He said the school graduates about 15 officers each year from its Indigenous police officer program, which is designed to prepare officers for the difficult conditions they can face in remote communities.He said all police officer candidates, including those in the regular stream, receive training on the history of residential school and Canada’s legacy of colonialism from Indigenous partners, including the Quebec Women’s’ Association.Morgan Lowrie, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Mayor reimbursed for lost wages

Norfolk Mayor Kristal Chopp will not be out-of-pocket for her recent entanglement with Norfolk’s integrity commissioner.Tuesday, Norfolk council reimbursed Chopp for the financial penalty Toronto lawyer John Mascarin imposed earlier this month.This follows on the heels of a resolution June 11 where council accepted Chopp’s apology on Facebook for tearing up a planning report she was disappointed with Jan. 8.Mascarin and council agreed the mayor’s actions were indecorous. Mascarin recommended – and council agreed – that Chopp should apologize.In a follow-up report June 8, Mascarin said Chopp’s Facebook post May 31 did not meet his test of a sincere apology. As Norfolk’s integrity commissioner with the power to sanction, Mascarin docked Chopp 10-days pay, or about $3,000.Council disagreed and accepted Chopp’s mea culpa at the June 11 meeting.Council wasn’t sure this also made the mayor whole financially. In the intervening week, the answer turned out to be no, prompting Charlottesville Coun. Chris Van Paassen to table Tuesday’s motion.Van Paassen told council that omitting reimbursement June 11 was an oversight on his part for which he apologizes.“I wasn’t aware I was making an error,” he said.When Van Paassen tabled his motion under other business Tuesday,  Chopp declared a financial interest and vacated the council chamber.The other shoe to drop from this episode is a report detailing council’s options regarding its relationship with the integrity commissioner.The new council was unaware that the previous council had given the integrity commissioner extraordinary powers to pass judgment and impose sanctions.Last week, Norfolk’s interim CAO Harry Schlange said this is unusual, adding most municipalities control the discipline process each step of the way.Norfolk council prefers this option and has asked clerk Andy Grozelle to prepare a report, with recommendations, to that end. Grozelle will present his findings to council June 25.MSonnenberg@postmedia.com read more

Winston shines Bucs beat 49ers 279 to end 4game skid

TAMPA, Fla. — Jameis Winston threw for 312 yards and two touchdowns to help the Tampa Bay Buccaneers snap a four-game losing streak with a 27-9 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday.Winston, benched last month after turning the ball over 11 times in 14 quarters, completed 29 of 38 passes without an interception.The fourth-year pro, who’s shared the starting job with Ryan Fitzpatrick, tossed scoring passes of 6 yards to Cameron Brate and 28 yards to Adam Humphries on a play he extended by scrambling to his right before throwing back toward the centre of the field.Tampa Bay (4-7), meanwhile, had four sacks and forced a turnover on defence for the first time in eight games, with Ryan Smith and Isaiah Johnson coming up with the team’s first interceptions since a loss to Pittsburgh on Sept. 24.Matt Breida rushed for 106 yards for the 49ers (2-9). Nick Mullens threw a 13-yard TD pass to Dante Pettis, but couldn’t get the ball in the end zone in the second and finished 18 of 32 for 221 yards and two interceptions.San Francisco played without linebacker Reuben Foster, whom the 49ers plan to release after the second-year pro was arrested at the team hotel in Tampa and charged with one count of domestic violence.Foster was jailed late Saturday night and released on $2,000 bond Sunday. The 2017 first-round draft pick out of Alabama will be placed on waivers officially on Monday.Winston, who sat out the first three games of the season while serving a suspension for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy, made his first start in a month. He was benched after throwing four interceptions in a loss at Cincinnati on Oct. 28, however Fitzpatrick was not much better protecting the ball in subsequent losses to Carolina, Washington and the New York Giants.INJURIES49ers: Played without injured WRs Pierre Garcon and Marquise Goodwin and RB Alfred Morris. … S Jimmie Ward left the game in the first quarter with a forearm injury and did not return. S D.J.

Athens begins its tenure as 2018 World Book Capital

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Athens may be the birthplace of democracy, and the cradle of the western culture, but since monday, the city is also the World Book Capital.This comes as part of an initiative by The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO), which convenes delegates from the International Publishers Association and the International Federation of Library Associations and Institutions (IFLA) every year to grant the title of World Book Capital to one city.Athens is the 2018 World Book Capital, following Conakry (Guinea); in April 2019, it will pass the mantle on to Sharjah (UAE). In the meantime, the Greek capital will host a series of more than 250 book-related events, starting off with an ‘Athens Urban Picnic: The Book Edition’, an all-day event featuring music, books, cinema, children’s activities, theater and interactive games.More events of this kind are to follow, but also roundtables, exhibitions, open days at libraries and cultural institutions lectures and open talks with acclaimed authors, such as  Ian McEwan, who was in Athens last week.“We are proud of this distinction. Our ambition and objective is for Athens to become a more book-friendly city, with greater opportunities for learning and knowledge”, said Mayor of Athens, George Kaminis.The Athens 2018 World Book Capital is ‘Books Everywhere’ and one of the side projects will definitely make it true; a ‘library on wheels’ is scheduled to travel to all parts of the city, reaching to the largest number of young and old readers as possible.For more information, go to the Athens 2018 World Book Capital website.last_img read more

When should mammography screening begin? How often is screening necessary? When should screening end? The varying national breast screening guidelines may have both patients and health providers uncertain as to appropriate recommendations. As the screening guideline discussion is one which has found traction in the news and on social media, it may be a challenge to address a patient’s questions about why her own screening protocol differs from what she may be hearing.In January 2016, and with much media attention, the U.S. Preventive Service Task Force (USPSTF) issued its final breast cancer screening recommendations. These recommendations differ from those of several national health organizations and have generated confusion and conflicting messaging on the topic within the public arena. Since the USPSTF final guidelines were issued — which recommend screening begin at age 50 and at two-year intervals — the American College of Radiology/Society of Breast Imaging (ACR/SBI), the American Cancer Society (ACS) and the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists (ACOG) have also updated their own recommendations.To assist with an analysis of the guideline recommendations, DenseBreast-info.org developed the Breast Cancer Screening Guideline Comparison. Note that the ACS now recommends screening starting at age 45 with an option to start at 40, while ACOG recommends offering screening starting at age 40 but not later than 50. The ACR/SBI, American Medical Association (AMA) and National Comprehensive Cancer Network (NCCN) continue to recommend screening beginning at age 40 and continuing at an annual interval. The ACS suggests mammography interval annually for ages 45-54, and every one to two years at age 55 and older, while ACOG suggests every one to two years without age qualifiers.The age to stop mammography also differs among guidelines and varies from a specific age cutoff (USPSTF suggests 74 years of age, ACOG suggests age 75 and then shared decision making), to stopping when life expectancy is less than 10 years (ACS), to no specified age limit with recommendation tailored to the individual patient’s health status (ACR/SBI). The AMA and NCCN do not state an age to stop mammography screening.In light of the growing availability and utilization of 3-D mammography (also known as tomosynthesis), several guidelines also include their view on the technology’s benefits, and these also differ. The ACR/SBI, ACS and NCCN find it an “improvement” over 2-D mammography in terms of detection and recall. Because the USPSTF only considers data from randomized trials with mortality as an endpoint, and there are no such trials of any breast imaging other than mammography, USPSTF’s position is that there is still “insufficient evidence to support routine use.” The ACOG and the AMA do not state positions on 3-D.Given the disparity in the guidelines, it can be a challenge to explain why and what the most appropriate screening protocol is for a patient. DenseBreast-info.org believes that patients should start their screening mammograms before age 45 for the following reasons:• The entire reason we screen for breast cancer is to find it early, when most treatable and survivable.• Breast cancer is the No. 1 cause of death in women aged 35 to 54 years.• Mammography has been proven to reduce deaths due to breast cancer in women screened beginning at age 40.• 25 percent of all years of life lost to breast cancer occur in women diagnosed before the age of 45.• Women at “high risk” for breast cancer due to known or suspected disease-causing mutation (such as BRCA1 or BRCA2) should begin screening at least by age 30, to include magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). 123PreviousNext News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more What about screening in dense breasts? • Younger women are more likely to have dense breast tissue, which can hide cancer on mammography.• In women who have breasts categorized as “dense” (heterogeneously dense or extremely dense), adding screening ultrasound (if the woman is not a high risk) after a mammogram (2-D or 3-D) can help find more breast cancers. Because ultrasound detects more areas that need follow-up, there is more to check. Ultrasound also increases the chance of needing a needle biopsy to determine if something detected is cancerous or not.

LLVM 800 releases

first_imgLLVM team released LLVM 8.0, earlier this week. LLVM is a collection of tools that help develop compiler front ends and back ends. LLVM is written in C++ and has been designed for compile-time, link-time, run-time, and “idle-time” optimization of programs that are written in arbitrary programming languages. LLVM 8.0 explores known issues, major improvements and other changes in the subprojects of LLVM. There were certain issues in LLVM 8.0.0 that could not be fixed earlier (before this release). For instance, clang is getting miscompiled by trunk GCC, and “asan-dynamic” is not able to work on FreeBSD. Other than the issues, there is a long list of changes that have been made to LLVM 8.0.0. Non-comprehensive changes to LLVM 8.0.0 llvm-cov tool can export lcov trace files with the help of the -format=lcov option of the export command. The add_llvm_loadable_module CMake macro has been deprecated. The add_llvm_library macro with the MODULE argument can now help provide the same functionality. For MinGW, references to data variables that are to be imported from a dll can be now accessed via a stub. This will further allow the linker to convert it to a dllimport if needed. Support has been added for labels as offsets in .reloc directive. Windows support for libFuzzer (x86_64) has also been added. Other Changes LLVM IR: The Function attribute named speculative_load_hardening has been introduced. This will indicate that Speculative Load Hardening should be enabled for the function body. JIT APIs: ORC (On Request Compilation) JIT APIs will now support concurrent compilation. The existing (non-concurrent) ORC layer classes, as well as the related APIs, have been deprecated. These have been renamed with a “Legacy” prefix (e.g. LegacyIRCompileLayer). All the deprecated classes will be removed in LLVM 9. AArch64 Target: Support has been added for Speculative Load Hardening. Also, initial support added for the Tiny code model, where code and the statically defined symbols should remain within 1MB. MIPS Target: Support forGlobalISel instruction selection framework has been improved. ORC JIT will now offer support for MIPS and MIPS64 architectures. There’s also newly added support for MIPS N32 AB. PowerPC Target: This has now been switched to non-PIC default in LLVM 8.0.0. Darwin support has also been deprecated. Also, Out-of-Order scheduling has been enabled for P9. SystemZ Target: These include various code-gen improvements related to improved auto-vectorization, inlining, as well as the instruction scheduling. Other than these, changes have also been made to X86 target, WebAssembly Target, Nios2 target, and LLDB. For a complete list of changes, check out the official LLVM 8.0.0 release notes.

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson (21) moves to the field before the first of an NFL football game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Arizona Cardinals, Sunday, Nov. 27, 2016, in Atlanta. (AP Photo/David Goldman) Top Stories Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling If you go to more advanced numbers, again you see a significant decline in Peterson’s performance from 2015 to 2016. A year ago, he was the toughest cornerback in the game to complete a pass on, allowing a catch once every 19.5 snaps in coverage. This season, that number is down to once every 14.0 snaps, and he was targeted more often. Peterson allowed 0.9 yards per coverage snap, which is 12th in the league, and up from the 0.58 he posted a season ago, which was the best mark in the NFL. Every statistical category you want to look at tells the same story as the tape: Peterson in 2016 slipped from being arguably the best corner in the game, and was more like a top-10 player at the position. That ranking is still certainly commendable, but wasn’t quite enough to get him on a top 101 list that focuses solely on the season that was.Peterson registered 46 total tackles on the season and his three interceptions and eight passes defensed both tied for the second-most on the team.NFL sack leader Vic Beasley of the Atlanta Falcons, Buffalo running back LeSean McCoy and Seahawks safety Earl Thomas joined Peterson as notable omissions from PFF’s top 101. I think cause I don’t do enough or make enough splash plays. But I can help my don’t show on the stat sheet often. #justdoingmyjob😂😂— Patrick Peterson /P2 (@P2) February 8, 2017Thursday morning, PFF put out another list — this one ranking the top 10 players that didn’t make their original piece. Peterson was first.By far the biggest reaction to any absence on the list came regarding Cardinals CB Patrick Peterson. As evidenced by his rank of No. 19 a season ago, PFF has ranked Peterson extremely highly in the past (only Josh Norman and Peterson’s Arizona teammate, Tyrann Mathieu, who is more of a slot weapon, were ranked higher a season ago among cornerbacks). In 2016, however, he didn’t live up to that level of play. Peterson has one of the toughest roles of any corner in the game year in and year out. He tracks the opposition’s top threat, and unlike many corners, will follow them to the slot, and not just left to right. That level of responsibility, however, means that if Peterson isn’t 100 percent on his game, it will show up quickly. In 2015, Peterson allowed just 50.0 percent of passes thrown his way to be caught, and quarterbacks recorded a passer rating of only 65.5 when targeting him. This season, those numbers jumped to 60.6 percent and 80.7, respectively. He gave up three touchdown catches this season (Denver’s Aqib Talib gave up none) and allowed more than 500 receiving yards.As PFF points out, Peterson’s exclusion is more a case of drop-off from an outstanding 2015 season than it was flat-out poor play this year.center_img The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Wednesday, Pro Football Focus released its list of the top 101 players during the 2016 NFL season.Five Arizona Cardinals made the list, but there was one notable exception. Cornerback Patrick Peterson didn’t appear, despite being the team’s lone participant in the Pro Bowl in Orlando (David Johnson and Larry Fitzgerald pulled out due to injuries).I love it.

August tourist revenue seen at €4236m up 8 Cystat says

first_imgRevenue from tourism rose in August 8 per cent to €423.6m compared with the respective month of 2016, which is the second highest ever amount in a month after July 2016, the statistical service said.The increase in revenue in August was mainly on an annual 14 per cent increase in arrivals in the same month which more than offset a 5.4 per cent drop in the budgets to €809.01 of visitors on average, Cystat said in a statement on its website on Friday. Tourists reduced in August their average length of stay by 0.2 days to 10.3 days and their average spending per day 3.6 per cent to €78.54.While the number of tourists from the UK, Cyprus’s main source of vacationers, rose 7.9 per cent in August, they spent on average €837.97 each during their stay or 5.4 per cent less compared with August last year, Cystat said. In the case of tourists from Russia, the island’s second largest source of incoming tourism, their number dropped 2.5 per cent. They also spent €850.76 or 0.5 per cent less during their stay on average.In January to August, tourism revenue rose 14 per cent to over €1.8bn, against a 15 per cent increase in arrivals to 2,517,887, Cystat said. Tourism accounts directly or indirectly, roughly a quarter of Cyprus’s economy, expected to expand 3.5 per cent this year.You May LikeYahoo SearchThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
