UN official calls for international backing of political process in DR of

Just returned from Bunia, which he described as “now a bit of a ghost town,” Jean-Marie Guéhenno, Under-Secretary-General for UN Peacekeeping Operations, told a press briefing that the “impressive” efforts of the UN peacekeepers – chiefly from Uruguay – had changed the way the international community looks at the DRC. “Suddenly people realize that the horrors that are occurring in the Congo must end,” he said. “That stand that has been taken in Bunia – a small place in a remote part of very large country – was sending a very strong signal way beyond Ituri [province]. It is of critical importance how the international community is now going to follow-up in the coming months.” Mr. Guéhenno said the message he wanted to get across was that the wider international community now has to take a stand in Bunia and more broadly for the DRC and then has to support the political process. “That message also goes beyond Bunia – if there was no national unity if the political process does not move forward then we’ll be in trouble.” Although it was tragic to see a once-vibrant town more or less emptied by violence, the UN Organization Mission (MONUC) force had been “the difference between life and death – the only security the poor people of Bunia have.” Still, their valiant efforts were not enough to stabilize the situation. To that end, the simple announcement of the Security Council’s decision to deploy a multinational emergency force to Bunia had made a difference in the people’s lives there, Mr. Guéhenno said. Earlier Wednesday, he introduced Secretary-General Kofi Annan’s second special report on MONUC, in which the UN chief recommended that the mandate of the Mission be extended for another year, until 30 June 2004, and that its military strength be boosted to 10,800 troops. Mr. Guéhenno also briefed the Council on his recent trip to the region, where he held meetings with the Presidents of the DRC, Uganda and Rwanda to discuss the situation in the DRC. The Deputy Emergency Relief Coordinator, Carolyn McAskie, also briefed the Council on the humanitarian situation in the country. Meanwhile on the ground, the UN has withdrawn its unarmed military observers from the eastern town of Kanyabayonga after they were informed by the local authority of threats against their lives. In Bunia, the situation remained unstable with kidnapping, robbery and raping a daily occurrence. The UN humanitarian agencies have assisted the distribution of food to 10,000 people in Bunia in the past two days. The food package will last 21 days. The number of dead bodies that have been collected by the local Red Cross now stands at 429. Listen to UN Radio report read more

Prevention is key to breaking the cycle of HIV transmission UN chief

“The world is making good progress towards ending the AIDS epidemic by 2030,” United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres told the General Assembly on Tuesday, citing the need for more accessible HIV testing, treatment and antiretroviral therapy.“But progress is uneven and fragile,” he added. “On all continents, key populations at higher risk of infection continue to be left further and further behind.”Where prevalence is high, young women remain vulnerable; and youth need to learn how to protect themselves.“Prevention is the key to breaking the cycle of HIV transmission,” he declared, pointing to the Prevention 2020 Road Map, which focuses explicitly on adolescent girls, young women and key populations at risk.And the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development calls for an integrated approach in ending HIV, he added.“Success will require us to strengthen links across these areas and build resilient and sustainable systems for health, underpinned by principles of human rights and equity,” said Mr. Guterres.The UN chief pointed to September High-Level Meetings of the General Assembly on Tuberculosis (TB) and Non-Communicable Diseases as key opportunities to “inform a new way of thinking and working that moves beyond the disease-specific silos of yesterday.”Looking ahead he also touted the 2019 High-Level Meeting on Universal Health Care as an occasion to build coherence across the global health landscape on financing, programming and accountability.“At this pivotal moment, we must renew our focus and shared commitment to a world free of AIDS. The pandemic is not over, but it can be,” he continued.“Let us move forward in a bold new spirit of partnership to overcome the cycle of HIV transmission and deliver health and well-being for all,” concluded the UN chief. HIV: ‘Still a huge challenge’, General Assembly PresidentNoting that although there has been a 40 per cent decline in new infections between 2000 and 2016, President of the General Assembly, Miroslav Lajčák, emphasized that “we need to be clear: we cannot afford to slow down. HIV is, still, a huge challenge.”“This virus still has a destructive – and deadly – impact on people around the world,” he added.Flagging that in 2016, one million people lost their lives to AIDS-related illnesses, and that only 53 per cent of people have access to antiretroviral therapy, he said “that is why we have committed to ending the epidemic of AIDS, by 2030.”He suggested exploring further opportunities for action, such as the 26 September high-level meeting on TB.“People infected with HIV are 20 to 30 times more likely to develop active tuberculosis,” he explained “Without proper treatment, nearly all HIV-positive people, with tuberculosis, will die,” stated Mr. Lajčák.Finally, he drew attention to the context around HIV and AIDS and the need for universal healthcare.“We are not on an even playing field,” he explained. “Universal healthcare can help to give everyone a chance. It can level the field.”Healthcare is crucial to sustainable development, which is why it has its own goal: SDG 3.This will be on the General Assembly’s agenda, in 2019. And it could accelerate our drive, to eradicate AIDS, once and for all,” he said.“Let’s speak up louder – in memory of those who have died, and in support of those who are living, with HIV and AIDS, today,” concluded the Assembly president. read more

I felt totally lost Department in uturn over decision to deny Venezuelan

first_img http://jrnl.ie/3859900 ‘I felt totally lost’: Department in u-turn over decision to deny Venezuelan man a Public Services Card He was denied a PSC as a result of having an expired passport due to Venezuela’s printing shortage crisis. Tuesday 20 Feb 2018, 12:05 AM Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 23,977 Views By Hayley Halpin Share186 Tweet Email1 Image: GNT STUDIO via Shutterstock OVER THE PAST month, the Department of Employment Affairs and Social Protection (DEASP) has softened its position on allowing Venezuelans living in Ireland to obtain a Public Services Card (PSC).In early January, a Venezuelan citizen legally living in Ireland was denied a PSC as he did not have an in-date passport, something that all non-EU citizens must have to obtain a card.The man, who wishes to remain anonymous, attended an appointment to register for a PSC at an Intreo centre in his local town in the first week of January. It was there that he was informed that he would not be permitted to obtain a PSC without a valid, in-date passport.As is the case with many Venezuelan emigrants around the world currently, he has been living with an expired passport due to a printing shortage in his country. Thousands have been left in a situation that has put their visas at risk and has prevented them from travelling.Dozens of Venezuelans ‘stranded in Ireland’ as Maduro’s government fails to issue new passportsThis man applied for a new passport in mid-2017. He has yet to receive one.In October, Venezuela’s socialist president Nicolás Maduro signed emergency legislation that permitted the extension of expired Venezuelan passports by two years, alleging that the delay in passports being issued was because of a shortage of paper at the national passport agency.The two-year extension, which can be obtained from any Venezuelan embassy in Europe (of which there are none in Ireland), allows expired passports to remain valid for visa purposes. However, if a Venezuelan accepts the two-year extension, their application for a new passport is cancelled – and many don’t wish to do this. This process has been outlined in detail here, along with the implications for those who do not have a valid passport.Venezuelans who spoke to TheJournal.ie said that the Irish Naturalisation and Immigration Service (INIS) has been somewhat understanding of those who are not in a position to extend their passports by two years, and have offered some a six-month extension to the validity of their visas – in the form of a Garda Immigration Card (GIC).The six-month extension still does not allow Venezuelans to travel unless they have a valid passport. It does, however, allow their visa status to remain legal in Ireland.This particular man opted for a GIC as an alternative to the two-year extension on his expired passport, as he wished to keep his application for passport renewal active.DeniedAlthough the Venezuelan man in question presented a letter from his Embassy explaining why he does not have a renewed passport, his GIC, along with proof of his PPS number, he was told that he would not be permitted to obtain a PSC due to his passport status.“I was very sad about the situation. I’m legal here and I didn’t understand why they denied me,” the man told TheJournal.ie in late January.I felt totally lost and I didn’t know what to do. I felt horrible. I had no support from my government with my passport and then I had no support from the PSC institution in Ireland.The man was eager to obtain a PSC card because, as of this coming April, it will be requirement when applying for a driving licence, which he said he needed for jobs he wished to apply for.As stated above, although it is criteria that all non-EU citizens must present a valid passport during the application meeting, this is not possible for many Venezuelans and he had instead presented proof of his PPS and his GIC for proof of his visa validity. The man’s proof of PPS status. Following on from the conversation in late January, TheJournal.ie contacted DEASP to query whether there was any provision in place for non-EU citizens who are not in a position to obtain a valid passport to receive a PSC.The Department cited its SAFE2 (Standard Authentication Framework Environment) verification standard as the reason for requiring a passport for non-EU nationals.“In relation to issues that Venezuelan citizens may be having with the renewal of their passports, the Department is aware of one such case, and is in the process of dealing with it,” a statement from DEASP to TheJournal.ie said. It said that it had not received any formal complaints from Venezuelan citizens in relation to the issue of a PSC.“The Department has a separate process for considering the cases of people who cannot complete the normal SAFE registration.”The Venezuelan man told TheJournal.ie that he left the application meeting in mid-January without confirmation that a solution would be found for his situation.He had vented his frustration over the fact that he was working legally in Ireland but was being denied all services that are currently attached to the PSC.I’m paying taxes, so why couldn’t I hold a PSC? I was a good immigrant. I was following all the rules. It was horrible for me.Turn aroundLast week, the Venezuelan man contacted TheJournal.ie to confirm DEASP sent him a letter on 1 February requesting that he return to the Intreo office at his earliest convenience, with his expired passport, so it could reconsider issuing a PSC to him.“I just felt so happy and relieved to receive this letter.”That week, he went to the Intreo office with the above letter, his expired passport, his Embassy letter and his GIC. His PSC application was finally accepted.“I went to the PSC office and they took my details and they told me the PSC will arrive within the next two weeks,” he told TheJournal.ie. “I felt a huge relief because now I can move on with everything, like my driving licence.”Reflecting on the lengthy process to finally secure a PSC, he said: “It has been so complicated, maybe it’s not just me, but maybe some other Venezuelans here are also suffering the same situation.The first time I went [to Intreo] they should have had the possibility to say ‘You have a letter from Immigration Service? You are legal here until this date? That’s alright.’ It’s common sense.TheJournal.ie contacted DEASP to confirm whether it is now policy that all Venezuelans without passports can secure a PSC or if it will continued to be assessed on a case-by-case basis.It said: “The Department has a separate arrangement for considering the exceptional cases of people who cannot complete the normal process to verify their identity to a substantial level of assurance.“While such instances are dealt with on a case-by-case basis, the process involved is robust and designed to maintain the integrity of SAFE2 identity registration/verification.”Other difficultiesAlthough he has found a resolution to the PSC roadblock, the man’s passport application remains in limbo.He has received a letter from the Venezuelan embassy to confirm that he applied for his new passport in mid-2017. However, it is nowhere to be seen.Although he has secured a six-month Garda Immigration Card extension, there is no certainty to when the printing backlog in Venezuela will be resolved and it remains unclear if the passport will reach the embassy within the six month period.Speaking to TheJournal.ie last month about the passport crisis, one Venezuelan citizen living in Ireland said: ”The situation is really out of hand. It’s worse than what we ever thought it could be.”Read: “It is the worst form of humiliation” – Woman denied Public Services Card due to adopted statusMore: ‘We are trying to sound the alarm’ – committee hears Public Services Card is a legal ticking time bomb Feb 20th 2018, 12:06 AM 43 Comments Image: GNT STUDIO via Shutterstock Short URLlast_img read more

KFC appeals 8m payout for infected chicken wrap

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram It was a KFC Twister Chicken Wrap that ended the chance of a normal life for Monika Samaan. In October 2005, seven-year-old Monika had gone to a KFC restaurant in the Sydney suburb of Villawood along with her parents, Amanwial and Hanna Samaan and brother, Abanou. Tragically, the chicken wraps and other items they shared were infected with salmonella. After the meal the whole family had to be hospitalised after they started vomiting and suffering from diarrhoea. While the rest of the family recovered, Monika suffered salmonella encephalopathy – a type of brain injury directly associated with food poisoning. Monika Samaan became so ill she lost the ability to speak. She will be confined to a wheelchair for the rest of her life. After coming out of hospital, Monika and her family filed a lawsuit against KFC, which they finally won after a seven-year battle in the NSW Supreme Court. In April this year Justice Stephen Rothman found in favour of Monika, ordering KFC to pay the Samaan family $8.3 million in compensation, to be used for her lifelong medical care. KFC vowed to appeal the case and last week the fast-food giant’s lawyers were true to their word, filing a formal appeal in the NSW Supreme Court. The appeal is based on three assertions: that there had been; a ‘failure to consider evidence’ during the initial hearing, an ‘error in the judge’s factual findings’, and mistakes over the weight given to certain evidence. Miss Samaan is in danger of losing part of, or possibly all, her compensation. Fairfax Media has reported that KFC is trying to force Miss Samaan to pay its legal costs from her 2009 court hearing, which are expected to amount to hundreds of thousands of dollars. The company has always denied it was responsible for Miss Samaan’s brain damage but during the initial court hearing, poor hygiene practices were revealed at the Sydney store where the family purchased their debilitating meal. Miss Samaan’s lawyer, George Vlahakis said this week that it was clear the company would use all its resources to continue its appeal against the court decision. Through Vlahakis, the Samaan family hit back at KFC’s appeal submission, saying they were ‘an amorphous restatement’ of what had been said during the trial. “KFC fought the case for six years in court and the hearing of the case was spread over twelve months. They put up every conceivable argument they could and the court found against them,” said Mr Vlahakis. “Now they want to fight all of the facts of the case again.” Vlahakis described KFC’s appeal as having a devastating effect on Monika and her loved ones. “All that the family asks for now is that KFC abide by the court’s decision, so that they can get on with looking after Monika and safeguarding the future of their 14-year-old daughter.”last_img read more

ESA Satellite Avoids Potential Collision With SpaceX Starlink Craft

first_imgStay on target A European Space Agency (ESA) satellite conducted a critical maneuver on Monday to ensure that it did not hit one of SpaceX’s Starlink internet crafts.On Sept. 2, the ESA’s Aeolus satellite elevated its orbit to safely pass over Starlink 44, an important internet satellite part of SpaceX’s “Starlink” megaconstellation, Space.com reported. ESA officials confirmed that the evasive operation was successful and that no collision occurred at the time.ESA spacecraft dodges large constellation“No one was at fault here, but this does show the urgent need for proper #spacetraffic management – with clear communication protocols and more automation” — Holger Krag, ESA’s Head of #SpaceSafetyFind out more: https://t.co/M2juoNmMhO pic.twitter.com/3gT5p8hOIj— ESA Operations (@esaoperations) September 3, 2019ESA officials noted how collision avoidance maneuvers are typically not performed with active satellites and that a majority take place as a result of fragments from previous collisions.It is very rare to perform collision avoidance manoeuvres with active satellites. The vast majority of ESA avoidance manoeuvres are the result of dead satellites or fragments from previous collisions#SpaceDebris pic.twitter.com/mjbdoFfCPa— ESA Operations (@esaoperations) September 2, 2019“It is very rare to perform collision avoidance maneuvers with active satellites,” ESA officials explained in a follow-up tweet. “The vast majority of ESA avoidance maneuvers are the result of dead satellites or fragments from previous collisions.”Holger Krag, head of ESA’s Space Debris Office, told Forbes.com that the risk of collision between Aeolus and Starlink 44 was 1 in 1,000, which was ten times greater than the threshold for engaging in a collision-avoidance maneuver. Despite the risk of the two satellites bumping into each other, SpaceX reportedly didn’t move Starlink 44.“Based on this, we informed SpaceX, who replied and said that they do not plan to take action,” Krag told Forbes.com. “It was at least clear who had to react.”SpaceX discovered that there was an issue with the Starlink paging system, which led to the company not responding to the potential collision scenario on September 2. The last time the Starlink team sent emails with Aeolus’ handlers was August 28 and the collision risk was only in the 1-in-50,000 range on that day, according to SpaceX representatives.“At that point, both SpaceX and ESA determined a maneuver was not necessary,” a SpaceX representative told Space.com. “Then, the U.S. Air Force’s updates showed the probability increased to 1.69e-3 (or more than 1 in 10,000), but a bug in our on-call paging system prevented the Starlink operator from seeing the follow-on correspondence on this probability increase.”They added, “SpaceX is still investigating the issue and will implement corrective actions. However, had the Starlink operator seen the correspondence, we would have coordinated with ESA to determine best approach with their continuing with their maneuver or our performing a maneuver.”ESA is preparing to automate this process using #AI #ArtificialIntelligence.

David Silva admits that this will likely be his last World

first_imgDavid Silva has admitted that this will likely be his final World Cup ahead of making his 122nd appearance for Spain against Iran on WednesdayThe Manchester City playmaker has represented Spain at international level since his debut in the 1–0 friendly home defeat to Romania in November 2006 and has continued to rank in the number of games after having contributed effectively over the past 11 years.Silva was a member of Spain’s “Golden Generation” that saw the likes of David Villa, Andres Iniesta and Xavi Hernandez spectacularly win three successive major tournaments between 2008 and 2012.Heading into his third World Cup appearance, the 32-year-old admits that time is running out for him now and doubts that he will feature for his country at football’s biggest stage again.“Do you see me in another World Cup? I’m enjoying playing football with the team at this moment but I don’t believe I’ll play at another World Cup,” he told Marca.David Villa, SpainQuiz: How much do you know about David Villa? Boro Tanchev – September 14, 2019 Time to test your knowledge about Spanish legendary forward David Villa.Despite his age, Silva played a key role in Spain’s qualification campaign for the World Cup by scoring nine times in 12 matches under the now-departed Julen Lopetegui.And the former Valencia star feels that he is a much better all-around player nowadays due to the experience he has gained over the years.“I think I’m a better footballer now for all of my experience. You gain know-how from playing matches because every moment of a football match has its own rhythm. Knowing how to handle that is crucial, the more you play then the better you read games. I prefer the David Silva of 2018 because he’s experienced a lot of top-level football. The peace of mind that this brings is fundamental to success and I’ve played more than 120 matches with the national team.”Spain ended their first game of the World Cup with a 3-3 draw against Portugal last Friday.last_img read more

Economy records real growth of 18 per cent in 2017

first_img Finance Minister says Christie’s administration left millions in Collateral Calls Related Items:#bahamaseconomy, #fnmgovernment, #PeterTurnquest Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Recommended for youcenter_img Hurricane Irma forecast to be an expensive problem Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppNASSAU, The Bahamas — February 21, 2018 – The Deputy Prime Minister and Minister of Finance the Hon. Peter Turnquest said that present estimates indicate that the Bahamian economy recorded real growth on the order of 1.8 per cent in 2017.  “This renewed buoyancy stemmed primarily from construction activity associated with on-going foreign investment projects, as well as rebuilding work in the wake of the hurricanes,” DPM Turnquest said as he presented fiscal developments during the first half of the 2017/18 fiscal year in the House of Assembly, Wednesday, February 21, 2018.  The DPM said he would present a more detailed and comprehensive mid-year fiscal update to Parliament during his Contribution to the Debate on the Mid-Year Statement and related resolution.He explained that before this renewed buoyancy, during the four-year period between 2012 and 2016, the Bahamian economy actually shrank in real terms, from $10.7 billion to $10.2 billion.DPM Turnquest also noted that while the rate of unemployment did rise marginally between May and November of last year, it still stood fully 1.5 percentage points lower than a year earlier.  All of the islands surveyed also posted lower rates of unemployment than had been experienced in November 2016.The DPM also noted that all of the islands surveyed posted lower rates of unemployment than had been experienced in November 2016.He said prospects for the economy in 2018 are for yet further strengthening of activity, with real growth estimated at 2.5 percent. “Conditions in the labour market are consequently also expected to improve. These developments will be underpinned by the completion of Baha Mar’s phased opening and by various foreign investment-related projects.” He said there is also expected that growth in both the tourism sector and the national economy will be favourably impacted by stronger projected growth in the U.S., The Bahamas’ major trading partner. “In its latest forecast, the International Monetary Fund has boosted its forecast for U.S. growth by 0.4 percentage points, to a level of 2.7 per cent.” He said the increase in investor and consumer confidence in the United States augers well for continued growth in tourist travel to, and investment interest in, the Islands of The Bahamas.Press Release BIS, Llonella Gilbertlast_img read more

ACLU sues Dunleavy over punitive cuts to court system

first_imgThe Alaska chapter of the American Civil Liberties Union is suing Governor Mike Dunleavy over what it says is an unconstitutional and retaliatory move against the state’s court system. The group says a veto by the governor last month threatens the separation of powers between the three branches of government. “The governor cannot impermissibly interfere with the functions of another co-equal branch,” Decker said. “We also expect this case to make clear that a governor may not use the veto power to re-appropriate money from one legislative appropriative function to another legislatively appropriative function.” The lawsuit, filed Wednesday at a state superior court in Anchorage, seeks to restore $334,700 to the Alaska Court System that were among Dunleavy’s 182 line-item vetoes. “The governor’s action is so brazen and so unprecedented. All of our previous governors knew not to play politics with our judges. And so that is why we’re suing today,” said ACLU of Alaska Executive Director Joshua Decker during a press conference Wednesday morning. The lawsuit seeks to reverse the funding cut and declare the action illegal under state law. According to the ACLU’s lawsuit, that amounts to retaliation, and infringes on an independent judiciary. In a budget document from June, Dunleavy said he vetoed the court system funding because the state Supreme Court has ruled that Medicaid funds can be used to pay for abortions. According to the administration, since both the Legislative and Executive branches oppose public money going toward terminating pregnancies, the annual cost for so-called elective abortions should be born by the one branch upholding the policy. center_img The case was filed on behalf of two plaintiffs, Bonnie Jack and John Kauffman, both of Anchorage. According to the ACLU, this is the first case in Alaska challenging the constitutionality of a veto directed at another branch of government. Even if the cut to the court system is ultimately overturned by legislators with other vetoed items, the ACLU is still likely to ask for a ruling on the matter. ACLU of Alaska’s Executive Directer Joshua Decker announcing the group’s lawsuit beside plaintiff Bonnie Jack (Photo: Zachariah Hughes – Alaska Public Media, Anchorage). Dunleavy spokesperson Matt Shuckerow pointed to broad authority for Alaska’s executive branch to issue budget vetoes, but said Wednesday afternoon that the governor’s office does not comment on pending litigation.last_img read more

Plan to digitise forest boundaries in Telangana to address land

first_imgHyderabad: The Telangana Forest Department on Sunday said it planned to take up digitisation of forest boundaries like in Karnataka and Odisha to address disputes pertaining to forest land in several areas. The disputes revolve around whether the particular area was forest land or revenue land, Telangana Principal Chief Conservator of Forests P K Jha said. Also Read – Golden 90’s Music Superstars – Alka Yagnik & Kumar Sanu LIVE in Concert will be performing together for the very 1st time in the city of pearls,… Advertise With Us He said the government has taken feedback from Karnataka, which has done geo-referencing of their forest boundaries and Odisha, which has taken up a massive programme to digitise forest boundaries “We are also going to prepare a similar plan to digitise the forest boundaries and freeze it to ensure there is no dispute in future about it,” Jha told reporters here. Also Read – Warrant issued against Renuka Chowdhury in cheating case Advertise With Us He was speaking on the sidelines of a two-day workshop on “Initiative and Innovations in the Forestry Sector”, organised by the Telangana Forest Department, which saw participation of chief foresters of Maharashtra, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu, Kerala, and Karnataka. To a query on the June 30 incident at Kagaznagar, where a woman Forest Range Officer (FRO) and some staff were allegedly attacked, Jha said the incident has brought awareness among people on the difficulties involved in a forester’s job. Advertise With Us “The fact is that our job is very very difficult. We have to sometimes fight with armed people and we don’t have arms. Awareness building is more important than carrying any weapon that can only supplement (our efforts). The biggest strength has to be from society. If society understands the importance of forests and if they appreciated the services we render, I think that is the best protection we can have,” Jha said. FRO C Anitha was injured after she was attacked, allegedly by a group led by the brother of a ruling TRS MLA at Sarsala village in Kumuram Bheem Asifabad district over a land issue. She had gone to the village with her staff and police for plantation on land under a compensatory afforestation scheme for Kaleshwaram lift irrigation project when she was attacked. Koneru Krishna Rao, brother of Sirupur TRS MLA Koneru Kannapapa and 13 others were arrested for the assault. Both Anitha and the Kagaznagar forest divisional officer have been provided armed security, police had said. Maharashtra Principal Chief Conservator of Forests, U K Agarwal, who also spoke, said the tiger population in their state had increased to 240 from 103 in the 2006 census. Besides this, there are 82 cubs/sub-adults as per the recent census “We need to have corridors….For their development, there has been re-location of many villages. In Maharashtra, underpasses are being constructed on national highways (passing through forests),” Agarwal said. He said a national conference on forests would be held in November in Maharashtra, where forest ministers and secretaries from all states would hold deliberations on protecting forests and also on formulating a national level policy.last_img read more

Used typically as a curative treatment either alone or in conjunction with surgery and/or chemotherapy, the aim of radiation therapy has always been to eradicate a patient’s cancer.  Technology has improved and the delivery of radiation has become more precise, and radiation oncologists are now able to deliver higher doses of radiation more safely. This has given radiation an even bigger role in cancer care. Radiation therapy has a wide range of uses including as an adjuvant therapy, in which radiation is used after surgery to sterilize a surgical site of residual cancer cells. In neoadjuvant therapy, radiation is used prior to surgery to reduce the size of a tumor, sterilize the area around a tumor and improve surgical outcomes. Radiation therapy can also be used in the palliative setting to alleviate symptoms associated with tumors — such as pain and bleeding — in order to improve a patient’s quality of life.Types of Radiation Therapy TreatmentsRadiation therapy is typically broken down into two subcategories: external beam radiation and internal radiation, or brachytherapy. During brachytherapy, radioactive seeds or pellets are implanted close to or within a tumor site. This can be done either during an open surgery, or outside of a surgical setting using needles, catheters or tubes. External radiation involves the use of radiation machines to deliver X-ray, electron or proton radiation to a tumor. There have been many advances that have revolutionized the way external beam radiation is delivered.Progression of X-ray TherapyX-ray therapy has greatly improved in the last few decades. Unlike early cobalt radiation that used low-energy X-rays, today, radiation oncologists utilize high-energy, megavoltage X-rays that can penetrate more deeply and minimize irradiation of the skin. According to American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) Vice President Sandra Hayden, M.A., R.T.(T)., multileaf collimators (MLC) replaced traditional shielding with blocks. In addition, MLC allowed radiation therapy professionals to provide intensity modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) — little leaflets that can move in and out of the beam to modulate the fluence pattern of the beam. “IMRT is a very sophisticated type of X-ray treatment, where instead of relying on just a few static beams to deliver radiation, multiple actively modulated beams are utilized,” said Henry Tsai, M.D., ProCure Proton Therapy Center, New Jersey. He said that in IMRT, each of the beams is actively modulated during the delivery so that the shape of the distribution of radiation can be more tightly wrapped around the tumor, minimizing exposure of the surrounding tissue. The use of MLC has continued to increase in radiation X-ray therapy. In February 2013, the UC Davis Comprehensive Cancer Center was one of the first sites in North America to install an MLC system on its linear accelerators. The center reported in a press release that the MLC system allowed radiation oncologists to customize the therapeutic beams to conform to a tumor’s shape and size. Advancements of Imaging in Radiation Therapy In addition to the advancement of IMRT, Hayden said that image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT) is becoming a mainstay. IGRT utilizes enhancements or attachments in addition to the delivery component of radiation. For example, cone beam computed tomography (CBCT)/kilovoltage (kV) imaging panels mounted onto treatment units allow radiation therapists the ability to acquire imaging information prior to and during treatment. This imaging information is used to guide radiation beams and treat tumors. Tsai said that combining high-resolution imaging studies with radiation delivery allows for better outcomes. “The better we can define where the tumor is, the better ability we have to improve the therapeutic ratio, minimizing the exposure to healthy tissues that can occur with radiation treatment.” Hayden echoed this statement saying, “This technology allows radiation therapists and radiation oncologists to have an even better visualization of structures as well as the tumor, to deliver radiation therapy more precisely than ever before.” Research continues to push the limits of IGRT. This past May the Netherlands Cancer Institute-Antoni van Leeuwenhoek Hospital, Amsterdam, the Netherlands, joined the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center, Houston, and the University Medical Center Utrecht, the Netherlands, as part of a research consortium that will help to develop an image-guided treatment combining radiation therapy with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), creating an MRI-guided radiation therapy system. “MRI is the gold standard modality for imaging soft tissues, and MR imaging of the cancer during radiation therapy could provide the healthcare team the ability to optimize treatment while reducing toxicity,” said Steven J. Frank, M.D., associate professor of radiation oncology, director of advanced technologies, MD Anderson, in a press release. Hayden added that MRI “is being utilized for its superior quality and will continue to enable us to target the tumor and limit radiation dose to surrounding areas.”Functional and metabolic imaging is also undergoing further research. “Functional and metabolic imaging will help us target the radiation delivery by enabling us to see not just where the tumor is, but also where the metabolically active parts of the tumor are,” Tsai said. He said that by also potentially allowing physicians to view the hypoxic areas of tumors — areas that may be more resistant to treatment and therefore might require higher doses of radiation or radiosensitizers — functional and metabolic imaging will help guide physicians in where they need to intensify cancer treatment. Advancements in Proton TherapyAccording to Tsai, the next phase of technology that is becoming more prevalent is proton therapy, the most advanced form of radiation available. Proton beams are much more precise. “Pencil beam scanning, also known as spot scanning, has the ability to treat complex tumors while avoiding healthy tissues and critical structures,” Hayden said.Proton therapy’s reduction of normal tissue exposure can be credited to physicians’ ability to control how far proton beams penetrate into the body. “Unlike an X-ray, which enters the body and exits out of the other side, exposing a lot of the normal tissues to unnecessary radiation, a proton beam can be controlled. We can decide how far we want that beam to enter the body. The beam delivers its energy at the specified depth and then stops moving,” Tsai said. This method eliminates exit radiation, giving physicians the ability to increase radiation dose and more powerfully target tumors. “We can take advantage of that proton property to deliver more radiation to tumors while minimizing the amount of radiation that is given to the surrounding healthy tissues,” he continued. Hayden said that because radiation is confined to the tumor, side effects generally common after radiation therapy are reduced with proton therapy.Due to its success and benefits, proton therapy is gaining widespread use in different areas of cancer treatment and research. According to clinical study results presented at the American Society for Radiation Oncology’s (ASTRO) 55th annual meeting, proton therapy has proven to be a cost-effective treatment for pediatric brain tumor patients. In June, Loma Linda University Medical Center, Loma Linda, Calif., announced that it had openings in eight clinical trials for patients with breast, prostate, liver and pancreas cancers — all involving the use of proton therapy. As research rapidly sheds light on the benefits of this technique, academic centers are building proton therapy centers around the United States. Emory Healthcare and the Winship Cancer Institute’s Emory Proton Therapy Center in Atlanta and the Texas Center for Proton Therapy in North Texas are both scheduled to open in 2016. According to a report by the market research firm RNCOS, there may be as many as 27 proton centers in the United States by 2017. Conventional Surgery vs. RadiosurgeryDue to the increased precision of radiation beams, one trend that will likely see an increase is the decision of patients to forego surgery and opt instead for radiosurgery or stereotactic ablative radiation therapy. In radiosurgery and stereotactic ablative radiation therapy, high doses of radiation are targeted at small, well-defined tumors of the brain, lung, liver and spine, with the goal of killing the cancer, while also minimizing exposure to surrounding healthy organs, Hayden said. These techniques offer a noninvasive, nonsurgical option for tumors. “Although in some cases radiation is used as an adjunct to surgery, we maybe seeing more and more patients turning to radiosurgery as an option for certain types of tumors,” Tsai said.Additional AdvancementsAccording to American Cancer Society data, breast cancer patients in particular are living longer due in part to advancements in early detection. Physicians have begun to incorporate patients’ breathing patterns into simulation. The gating/deep inspiratory breath hold (DIBH) technique requires that patients hold a deep breath for a short period of time in order to allow the radiation oncology team to target the radiation exactly where it needs to go. “Utilizing gating, there is less possibility of long-term cardiac toxicity,” Hayden said.Healthcare and Radiation TherapyAs healthcare encourages the use of more cost-effective solutions, making hospitals and healthcare centers increasingly cost-conscious, many would think that radiation therapy would take a hit due to its association with higher costs. However, Tsai does not see this as a likely scenario. In many cases, technological improvements have actually resulted in more cost-efficient delivery of radiation therapy. “Although IMRT machines and proton machines may be considered pricey technologies, as we improve them and understand how we can make treatment systems more compact and less expensive, ultimately we can deliver the same, sophisticated radiation treatments but not incur the large cost associated with it,” Tsai said. Improving Individualized Treatment The expanding and maturing population in the United States could possibly lead to more cancer diagnoses in the future, making cancer a more prevalent problem. Radiation therapy will continue to be a necessary and vital part of cancer treatment.Cancer research is working toward the ability to predict what mode of treatment will offer a specific patient the best outcome. Tsai said, “For some cancer treatments or biologic agents/chemotherapies, we know that a certain percentage of patients may not respond to the treatment, but the question is, which patients are those?” Cancer research is helping physicians better figure this out using tools such as molecular testing and genetic information. Now, physicians are better able to know to which drug a specific tumor is more likely to respond. However, this ability is just in its infancy. “Medicine has not yet advanced to the point where we can easily say that a particular treatment will only work on a specific subtype of a given type of cancer,” Tsai said. “That’s something that we are working on as a field.” As radiation therapy continues to advance into the future, Tsai projected that this type of individualized treatment will be of more importance. “It is ultimately going to be individualizing the use of different treatments, which will allow us to tailor treatment regimens to the patient,” he said. According to Tsai, this individualized treatment will prevent patients from being over- or under-treated, an issue that many patients face today and that may contribute to increased healthcare costs. Another area that will be further explored is the use of radiation in combination with other systemic therapies such as chemotherapy and targeted biologic agents. “Understanding how these treatments interact with each other and synergize may potentially improve the outcomes when a patient is being treated with radiation,” Tsai concluded.  FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The top piece of content in July was a video interview explaining how Princess Margaret Cancer Center is using machine learning to create automated treatment plans.

Easy access to both images and data can equip physicians and specialists with a more holistic view of each patient’s condition and can help enhance the process of communicating diagnostic and treatment decisions to patients. Carestream is demonstrating its multimedia reporting capabilities at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference. The company’s advanced Vue Reporting capabilities provide online, interactive reports that automatically contain structured and quantitative data, standardized language and comparative data. Rather than multiple sign-ons to access images and reports, physicians can use the hyperlinks from the report to directly view the key image or significant findings—whether from an electronic medical record (EMR) or a universal viewer such as Carestream’s Vue Motion. In addition to saving time and effort, these advanced reports also can increase referrals. “Multimedia reporting is the next stage in the evolution of the radiology report. Physicians can show patients their medical images as well as associated measurements to help communicate treatment decisions,” said Cristine Kao, Carestream’s Global Marketing and Growth Operations Director for Healthcare Information Solutions. “This can help build rapport between doctors and patients and may help patients embrace the therapies that have been prescribed.”In a study conducted by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), more than 100 oncologists and radiologists agreed that quantitative interactive reporting would be superior to traditional text-only qualitative reporting for assessing tumor burden in cancer trials conducted at NIH. The study’s conclusion states that NIH researchers aim to improve the facility’s reporting in concert with new picture archiving and communication system (PACS) capabilities that include semi-automated lesion segmentation, interactive reporting and metadata management of lesions.Facilities that offer multimedia reporting could also gain increased referrals from physicians, according to a study conducted by the Emory University School of Medicine. This study found that 80 percent of physicians would preferentially refer patients to a healthcare provider with multimedia reporting. In addition, 79 percent of physicians are more likely to recommend that their peers refer patients to a facility with multimedia reporting, according to the study.For more information: www.carestream.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Medical 3-D Printing | August 08, 2019 RSNA and ACR to Collaborate on Landmark Medical 3D Printing Registry The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) will launch a new medical… read more Related Content Technology | Contrast Media | August 05, 2019 Bracco Receives FDA Approval for Varibar Thin Liquid for Oral Suspension Bracco Diagnostics Inc. announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for Varibar Thin Liquid (barium… read more News | Breast Imaging | August 02, 2019 Volpara to Distribute Screenpoint Medical’s Transpara AI Solution Volpara Solutions and ScreenPoint Medical BV signed an agreement under which Volpara will sell ScreenPoint’s Transpara… read more News | Enterprise Imaging | July 29, 2019 Philips Announces 10-year Enterprise Informatics Agreement With Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire de Nancy Philips and Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire (CHRU) de Nancy, a leading academic hospital in the Grand Est… read morelast_img read more
