QUEBEC CITY, Que. – Quebec provincial police are investigating after 19 dead dogs were found by the side of a road near Quebec City.A citizen called police after finding the decomposing carcasses last week in Cap-Sante, about 50 kilometres southwest of the provincial capital.Police spokeswoman Helene Nepton says she don’t know how long the dogs were there before they were found.She says an investigation is ongoing and it’s too soon to say what caused the animals’ deaths.
“This would include reported planning in the so-called E-1 envelope, which risks completely cutting off East Jerusalem from the rest of the West Bank,” the spokesperson added in a statement. “Settlements are illegal under international law and,” the spokesperson noted. “Should the E-1 settlement be constructed, it would represent an almost fatal blow to remaining chances of securing a two-State solution.”Announced by Israeli authorities on Friday, construction in E1 – a West Bank territory that Israel captured in 1967 – would connect a large Jewish settlement to Jerusalem, according to media reports. However, the move would also reportedly divide the West Bank in two, rendering a viable, contiguous and sovereign Palestinian State impossible to achieve in accordance with the two-State solution contained in the internationally approved plan that seeks to resolve the issue on the basis of two States, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and within secure borders.Mr. Ban’s spokesperson said that the Secretary-General repeats his call on all concerned to resume negotiations and intensify efforts towards a comprehensive, just and lasting peace and urges the parties to refrain from provocative actions. “In the interests of peace, any plans for E-1 must be rescinded,” he added. On Thursday, the General Assembly voted to grant Palestine non-member observer State status at the United Nations, while expressing the urgent need for the resumption of negotiations between Israel and the Palestinians leading to a permanent two-State solution.The resolution on the status of Palestine in the UN was adopted by a vote of 138 in favour to nine against with 41 abstentions by the 193-member Assembly.
Scientists from the University of Exeter will lead a ground-breaking new collaborative research project to discover crucial new deposits of essential raw materials across Europe. The pioneering team, including geologists from the Camborne School of Mines, will devise new, state-of-the-art techniques to expose previously unknown underground resources essential to the manufacturing of many ‘high-tech’ products.The four-year project, which has received a grant of €5.4 million from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme, begins this month.At present, less than 3% of the supply of critical raw materials – which include rare earths, phosphate, and niobium – is sourced directly from Europe. However, experts believe that there is a wealth of as-yet unexplored deposits located across the continent, which could be successfully mined.The innovative new project will use mineralogy, petrology and geophysics techniques to create advanced exploration models to determine where the valuable minerals can be found.Prof Frances Wall, who is leading the project, said: “The pioneering new research that will be developed as part of this exciting project will give us unrivalled access to new locations for some of Europe’s most critical raw material deposits. We believe that the project will pave the way for Europe to become a world-leader in this specialist, but vital, area of mineral extraction, and crucially exploit them in an environmentally-responsible way.”The project team comprises of 12 partners, including five universities, staff from two national geological surveys and the Natural History Museum, London. Four industry partners will also garner world-leading expertise to develop and expand their businesses, transferring their expertise from Africa to Europe, as part of the project. Other partners involved are GeoAfrica, the British Geological Survey, Terratec Geophysical Services, Lancaster Exploration Ltd (a subsidiary of Mkango Resources Ltd), A. Speiser Environmental Consultants, Geological Survey of Denmark and Greenland as well as the Universities of Tübingen, St Andrews, G. d’Annunzio and Mendel in Brno.Studies will take place at seven natural laboratories, combined with Expert Council workshops.Wall added: “We believe that this is the largest research project on carbonatites and alkaline rocks ever undertaken. It is a tremendously exciting opportunity to garner lifetimes worth of expertise from the world’s experts, which we will do through a series of expert council workshops and fieldtrips.”The project has received funding from the European Union’s Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under grant agreement number 689909.

Business is literally buzzing for Viktor Plyushchev, a third-generation commercial beekeeper in La Center.He doesn’t just keep a few hives of bees in his backyard and collect some honey to sweeten the occasional cup of tea as a hobby; rather, he’s managing millions of bees in more than 1,200 hives, half of which are in Clark County. Honey collection, the sweet serum that the bees work all of their lives to make, is only a small part of the business.Plyushchev is in the business of bee pollination. That is, the process of bees transferring pollen grains from the cells of fruit and veggie flowers so that crops flourish. He takes the bees he raises to pollinate crops near and far, from local blueberry crops, to apple and pear orchards in Wenatchee and Yakima, to almond fields in California most recently this spring.“If there are no bees, there’s no pollination. Yes, there are wild bees, but not so many,” Plyushchev said, adding that there has been a bee shortage nationwide for the last decade or so. If crop production declined, people would be forced to pay more money for food. “I mean, there could be a colony nearby somewhere in a hollow tree, but it could be miles away because the bees only cover up to like a three-mile radius.”His business, Smart Bee Pollination, brings in bees to help growers achieve the most bountiful crop possible. And maintaining successful beehives (each of which consists of one laying queen, hundreds of male drone bees and around 20,000 to 80,000 worker bees) to achieve this result is not an easy feat. Plyushchev’s immense love for the job doesn’t go unnoticed.“He definitely has a deep love for the honeybee,” said Debby Cochran, the special events and honeybee swarm coordinator for the Preservation Beekeeping Council, an organization based in Camas.
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Space shuttle Atlantis returned from orbit for the last time this morning, closing out a 25-year flying career and safely bringing back six astronauts who boosted the International Space Station’s power and size.The smooth landing was indicative of the entire 12-day mission — NASA’s third-to-last shuttle flight.“That was pretty sweet,” Mission Control radioed after Atlantis glided through a clear morning sky and rolled down the runway. “That was a suiting end to an incredible mission.”Commander Kenneth Ham said he was ready to turn the shuttle over to the ground teams and get Atlantis “back in the barn for a little bit.”Mission Control had monitored storms throughout the early hours, but they dissipated by daybreak and remained at a safe distance. The cockpit erupted in cheers when Mission Control finally radioed up the “go” to come home.About 1,200 guests lined the Kennedy Space Center runway to welcome Atlantis and its crew home, the maximum allowable crowd. The lead flight directors for the space station construction mission came in from Houston for the event. Space center employees wore white ribbons with the name “Atlantis” and its picture embossed in gold.

WILMINGTON, MA — The Wilmington Community Fund annually coordinates the efforts and generosities of community groups and individuals to provide festive holidays for many Wilmington families.Their “Adopt-A-Family” program works by anonymously pairing Wilmington children in need with donors. Donors can choose to fully sponsor a child with a commitment of $150-200, or make a smaller monetary donation to our general fund. Donors who sponsor a child can also choose to shop for their child with a provided wishlist, or can let our dedicated team of elves handle the running around.Sponsorship can be on an individual or group/organization level. Many of their sponsors have joined with family members, co-workers or friends and sponsored a child together. Whether in memory of a loved one, in lieu of an office gift-exchange, or simply “just because,” your help is truly appreciated!The 2018 program has begun and generally wraps up a few weeks before Christmas. Last year, the Community Fund assisted more than 60 Wilmington children through the holiday program.If you’re interested in being a part of the program, please email the Fund for more information at email@example.com.(NOTE: The above information is from the Wilmington Community Fund.)Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

At a recent conference on abortion rights, access to contraceptive and comprehensive sexual education, there was a focus on the role of Black women’s roles in fight for reproductive justice.The “In Our Own Voice: National Black Women’s Reproductive Justice Agenda Summit” was held Sept.25-26 in D.C. at the FHI 360 Conference Center, 1825 Connecticut Avenue NW.Organizations participating in the summit included Black Women for Wellness, Black Women’s Health Imperative, New Voices Pittsburgh, SisterLove Inc., and SPARK Reproductive Justice Now. The organizations represent more than 50,000 Black women throughout the United States.Historically, Black women have been at the center of reproductive justice policies in the country, Dorothy Roberts, University of Pennsylvania Law School, said. During her speech she mentioned that some of the first laws in the colonies were about Black women’s reproduction as it pertained to slavery.“I think Black women have a long history of organizing for reproductive justice. We coined the term and we have a framework that puts reproductive rights and decision making in a political context that is essential to understanding the role of it in society,” she said. Roberts was the keynote speaker for the event.“Black women’s resistance against reproductive oppressions has been part of our organizing and part of our vision to develop reproductive freedom,” she said.An example of the Black woman’s tenacity against reproductive oppression was seen in Roe vs. Wade, when Congress passed a law three years later that impacted low-income women, especially Black women who could not afford to pay for an abortion. “If you don’t have the money to access that right then you don’t have that right,” said Marcela Howell, founder and coordinator of the summit.The way the issues intersect health, economic status, social class, and political power were also addressed during the summit. “It is important because there is a certain level of intersectionality that amplifies where these issues live and how these issues impact Black women’s lives,” said Dázon Dixon Diallo, founder of SisterLove, an organization striving to eradicate the adverse impact of HIV/AIDS and other reproductive health challenges upon women through education, prevention, support and human rights advocacy.“It has to start where people are feeling it the most and that is with Black women and their bodies,” she said.For attendees like Melanie Medalle, policy and advocacy program manager in SisterLove, it is important for the summit to maintain a focus on the overall goal. “One thing is to come back to the definition of reproductive justice,” said Medalle. “I think having that conceptual anchor is very helpful.”The organizations plans to coordinate efforts to increase outreach in southern and northeast states, and establish partnerships with HBCUs throughout the country.
Citation: Model suggests 1812 San Andreas earthquake may have been set off by San Jacinto quake (2016, March 14) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2016-03-san-andreas-earthquake-jacinto-quake.html 7.5 quake on California fault could be disastrous © 2016 Phys.org Journal information: Science Advances Back in 1812 a major earthquake struck southern California near what is now San Bernardino—modern study of damage from the quake suggested it was approximately a magnitude 7.5 quake. There was little damage because there were few structures in the area back then, though approximately 40 people were killed when a church they were in collapsed. For many years, Earth scientists have assumed that the quake was due solely to activity along the San Andreas Fault. In this new effort, Lozos suggests that the quake may have actually been set off by a quake along the San Jacinto fault line.Lozos’ findings are part of a study that included field trips to several sites in an area where the San Andreas Fault and the San Jacinto Fault nearly merge. While there, he found evidence of three strands—where sections of fault are separated by bits of crust that has remained intact—one near the San Andreas fault and two near the San Jacinto fault. Each strand is evidence of an earthquake, but reports from people in the area suggest there were only two earthquakes during the time period under study—in 1812 and 1800, which suggested that one of the strands on the San Andreas Fault and one on the San Jacinto Fault were evidence of the same quake. Lozos also looked at other data collected by other researchers doing working on faults in the area—all of it went into a model he built to describe seismic activity in the area surrounding the time frame of the 1812 quake. The model showed that the most likely scenario that could account for the data that has been collected was that a quake had occurred along the San Jacinto fault line and as it made its way near the San Andreas fault line, the disruption caused a quake to occur along that fault line as well.Lozos is quick to point out that his model is just that and that thus far he has no evidence to suggest that such a double quake is imminent, but he also notes that if it happened before, it could happen again, noting that southern California is long overdue for a pretty big tumbler.

DOI: 10.1126/sciadv.1500621AbstractThe San Andreas fault is considered to be the primary plate boundary fault in southern California and the most likely fault to produce a major earthquake. I use dynamic rupture modeling to show that the San Jacinto fault is capable of rupturing along with the San Andreas in a single earthquake, and interpret these results along with existing paleoseismic data and historic damage reports to suggest that this has likely occurred in the historic past. In particular, I find that paleoseismic data and historic observations for the ~M7.5 earthquake of 8 December 1812 are best explained by a rupture that begins on the San Jacinto fault and propagates onto the San Andreas fault. This precedent carries the implications that similar joint ruptures are possible in the future and that the San Jacinto fault plays a more significant role in seismic hazard in southern California than previously considered. My work also shows how physics-based modeling can be used for interpreting paleoseismic data sets and understanding prehistoric fault behavior.

Hear from Polar Explorers, ultra marathoners, authors, artists and a range of other unique personalities to better understand the traits that make excellence possible. How Success Happens July 28, 2016 2 min read This story appears in the August 2016 issue of Entrepreneur. Subscribe » Once a month, the best minds in drone making gather in Fargo to talk all things airborne. Drones, you say? Yep. Drone Focus is a meeting for everyone interested in the space — from developers to clients — to powwow about the fast-growing industry. And Fargo is just the spot to do it. There are currently 18 drone-related companies in North Dakota, and the state has invested $34 million in growing unmanned aircraft operations, research and businesses. “What makes Fargo unique is that the end user sits next to the entrepreneur and they solve the problem together,” says Greg Tehven, cofounder of local networking hub Emerging Prairie, which hosts the get-together.Joey Schmit, for example, is the founder of the year-old drone services provider Flight Pros, and he meets directly with Nolan Berg and Adam Spelhaug of Peterson Farm Seeds to hash out how the technology can better aid Peterson’s operation. “It’s pretty much the perfect match to work directly with a customer,” Schmit says. “They’re informing you of exactly what they want in their deliverables.”Fargo has another thing going for itself: “Unencumbered airspace five minutes outside of town,” says Terri Zimmerman, CEO of Fargo-based drone company Botlink. In other words, it’s real quiet out there, which makes the local skies perfect for testing, refining and actual work. “Our users, primarily in agriculture and construction, can collect data on their businesses in real time,” says Zimmerman, whose cloud-based platform allows clients to watch over extensive acreages, such as oil fields or farms. Now she’s looking to build clients beyond state lines, including Europe, Australia and the Middle East.Sure, Fargo does have some downsides — like its guaranteed annual snowstorms. But after a blizzard hits, city officials might now send a drone out, not humans, to check on downed power lines and unsafe roads.

According to research published in the September issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine, patients who exhibited hypermetabolism at the point of compression in their spine experienced improved outcomes after undergoing decompressive surgery.Cervical spinal stenosis is a condition in which the spinal canal narrows in the neck. While many patients lack symptoms, once symptoms appear, it usually indicates the presence of myelopathy. This compression can lead to progressive neurologic deficits, such as numbness, weakness or tingling in a leg, foot, arm or hand.In the study “Hypermetabolism in 18F-FDG PET Predicts Favorable Outcome Following Decompressive Surgery in Patients with Degenerative Cervical Myelopathy,” researchers aimed to assess the regional changes of glucose metabolism of the cervical spinal cord using 18F-FDG PET.”To date, experiences with 18F-FDG PET in symptomatic patients with degenerative cervical spine stenosis and consecutive compressive myelopathy are very limited,” said Norbert Galldiks, M.D., one of the lead researchers of the study. “In the present study, we present the results of preoperative magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and 18F-FDG PET imaging and postoperative follow-up imaging 12 months after decompressive surgery. Imaging findings were correlated with the clinical outcome.”Researchers observed two significantly different patterns of 18F-FDG uptake among the 20 study participants prior to surgery—approximately half of the patients had increased 18F-FDG uptake at the site of spinal cord compression and were classified as myelopathy type 1, while the other half had inconspicuous 18F-FDG uptake and were classified as myelopathy type 2. Post-operatively, those with myelopathy type 1 had a marked decrease in 18F-FDG uptake, while myelopathy type 2 patients had only a moderate decline in uptake.The overall outcome in myelopathy type 1 patients was favorable, and the patients showed significant improvement on their functional status assessment. In contrast, there was no significant clinical change in patients with inconspicuous 18F-FDG uptake.”A hypermetabolism of the cervical spinal cord at the level of cervical spine stenosis as indicated by a locally increased 18F-FDG uptake seems to be a marker for a potentially reversible phase of a compression-induced cervical myelopathy,” explained Galldiks. “The lesion of the spinal cord seems to be predominantly functional. Presence of this metabolic pattern reflects the time frame when decompressive surgery can lead to substantial clinical improvement. In order to stratify eligible patients for decompressive surgery, our findings may help to implement 18F-FDG PET investigations of the cervical spine in clinical routine.”For more information: jnm.snmjournals.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Pediatric Imaging | August 14, 2019 Ultrasound Guidance Improves First-attempt Success in IV Access in Children August 14, 2019 – Children’s veins read more News | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 06, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Improves Heart Attack Risk Assessment When used with a common heart scan, machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence (AI), does better than… read more News | September 06, 2013 PET predicts outcomes for patients with cervical spinal cord compression Metabolic activity in spine indicates optimal time for surgery Image courtesy of Imago Systems News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more Related Content News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more News | Neuro Imaging | August 16, 2019 ADHD Medication May Affect Brain Development in Children A drug used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) appears to affect development of the brain’s… read more News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more

“She’s got the curves.decided to launch his own outfit and decided not to partner with any major party in the state it was a sign of worry for the latter No one clearly knows who he is going to damage more the ruling Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) or the Congress By deciding to fight the upcoming elections with the Bahujan Samaj Party (BSP) as an ally Jogi has certainly left the competition jittery Speaking to Firstpost Jogi who despite quitting the Congress two years ago continues to enjoy a national recall unlike other leaders in the Congress reveals his stand on matters thatconcern Chhattisgarh and on other parties Here are excerpts from the interview: Former Chhattisgarh chief minister Ajit Jogi Image Courtesy: Firstpost/Debobrat Ghose Your wife Dr Renu Jogi a sitting MLA from Chhattisgarh’s Kota constituency has been a loyal soldier of the Congress who didn’t switch over to your party and decided to remain with the Congress But at the last moment the Congress denied her a ticket Your take The Congress not giving a ticket to Dr Renu Jogi is an internal matter of their party so I won’t comment much on this However I would just like to mention that it’s part of the "ABJ" (Anybody But Jogi) strategy of the state unit of the Congress that has been in practice since 2003 I had been trying to persuade Renu to join my party but because of her family relations with Sonia Gandhi she had been with the Congress for the past two anda half years What can be a bigger testimonial to her loyalty for the Congress than the fact that she put her affiliation with the party much above the husband-wife relationship Yet the Congress could not recognise her dedication for the party and also tried to separate her from Kota which is just like familyto her She cannot be isolated from Kota which is why she is now contesting the polls on a JCC ticket You continue to be a leader in Chhattisgarh with a high national recall value There has been a leadership vacuum in the Congress since you quit Do you think this will work to your advantage It’s an ironical situation that the Congress has a number of chief ministerial aspirants but does not have a single face that can be projected in Chhattisgarh All their so-called leaders are confined to their own constituencies This is definitely working to their disadvantage As goes the famous saying too many cooks spoil the broth We saw this situation earlier in 2008 and 2013 when all the so-called chief ministerial aspirants lobbied before the high command for the top post just before the results But when the results were declared these aspirants did not win even their own seats As far as my party rather my alliance is concerned we are not concerned with this as it is an internal matter of the Congress Our fight is with the BJP The Congress has become irrelevant We are committed to uprooting the Raman Singh-led BJP government in Chhattisgarh Will the combined strength of the BSP and your party be enough to defeat the BJP The BSP does not have a big vote share in Chhattisgarh Rather than considering the vote share (which reflects the overall votes for a party in the entire state) you need to look into the constituency-wise votes that the BSP has been getting in all the elections As India follows the "First-Past-the-Post" electoral system what matters is the constituency-wise votes not the overall vote share If we look at the Assembly-wise votes the Congress and BSP secured in 2003 2008 and 2013 elections it is clear that combining them could have secured them a majority in these elections which clearly indicates that the BJP would not have come to power at all in Chhattisgarh The Congress has become irrelevant now People don’t have any hope from the Congress and that is why they have been voting for the BJP despite the misrule of the Raman Singh government Now they have a clear cut alternative before them with our alliance This alliance will help to synergise the strengths of the JCC and BSP and also of the Communist Party of India (CPI) in the Bastar region and the industrial belts of Chhattisgarh due to the presence of their labour union theCentre of Indian Trade Unions (CITU) Our coalition with the BSP is not just of two parties but of the meeting of two hearts that beat as one The biggest testimony to this fact is that my daughter-in-law Richa is contesting on the BSP symbol In your view what are the weak areas of the 15-year-old Raman Singh government In a nutshell I would say that the Government of Chhattisgarh has failed on all three sectors related to the common man — health education and security When I say security it includes women’s security financial security food security the increasing crime rate and the Maoist problem The underlying reason for this is incompetence and rampant corruption To elaborate I would like to cite a few examples that clearly indicate the failure of the Raman Singh government in its 15-year tenure: – Despite 30 lakh unemployed youth in Chhattisgarh jobs are being given to outsiders – The government is running the business of selling liquor but is closing schools in the name of rationalisation – Farmers have not been given their promised minimum support price (MSP) which is forcing them to commit suicide – A once power surplus state is becoming power deficit but at the same time the government is selling power to other states – Businessmen are facing a slowdown because of wrong policies especially demonetisation and the poor implementation of the Goods and Services Tax – Human trafficking and crimes against women are on the rise – A dominant bureaucracy and prevalence of rampant corruption prevails in Chhattisgarh The chief minister himself has been asking his party workers and leaders to stop the business of commission for the past year to be able to rule for 30 years The list is endless What is your main campaign plank Rajasthan Madhya Pradesh and Chhattisgarh are the only states in India where there are no regional parties yet This election will change the scenario in Chhattisgarh Now the people of Chhattisgarh will no longer have to depend on Delhi or Nagpur to make decisions All their decisions will be made in Chhattisgarh This government will be "of the people of Chhattisgarh by the people of Chhattisgarh and for the people of Chhattisgarh" What will be your approach to the Maoist problem The Maoist problem cannot be tackled by bullets There is a famous saying: "An eye for an eye will make the whole world blind" It appliesin this case The Maoist problem can be resolved through dialogue by involving them in the political process That is what happened in Nepal We need socio-economic development; we need to give them education and employment and orient them to a good
