Plastics once Americas darling now foreign villain on Alaska shores

first_imgPlastic debris on a Montague Island beach. (2015 file photo: Chris Pallister/Gulf of Alaska Keeper)U.S. Sen. Dan Sullivan chaired a hearing in Washington this morning on marine debris, and he asked the witnesses if there was consensus on what the focus should be.Download Audio“Is everyone in general agreement on that?” he asked the panel of experts he assembled. “Plastics?”Saying it, Sullivan said he felt like he was in that 1960s movie, “The Graduate,” where a young Dustin Hoffman is advised to take a promising career path: “I just want to say one word to you. Just one word …. Plastics.”But rather than a symbol of our country’s bright economic future, plastics at this hearing played the role of villain.The top Democrat on the Environment subcommittee Sullivan chairs, Sheldon Whitehouse of Rhode Island, showed photos of dead seabirds with bellies full of plastic lighters and other trash. But Whitehouse did a double-take as Chris Pallister, co-founder of Gulf of Alaska Keeper, described the enormity of his group’s task on one location: Montague Island.“We have 10 people out there working. We have to move them with helicopters, so you can imagine the cost,” Pallister said. “And this is a shoreline where 30 tons of plastic debris per mile exists …”Whitehouse cut in: “Sorry, did I hear that right?“Thirty tons of plastic debris per mile,” Pallister confirmed. “Montague has 74 miles of shoreline just like that. We’ve been working on it for three summers now and we’ve only cleaned 9 miles of it.”Not to mention the other thousands of miles of Alaska coast. Pallister says there’s no steady funding for cleanup work. He says he’s particularly worried about what happens to plastic as it fragments in the ocean.“Chemicals like phthalates that are put in the plastic to make it soft and pliable … are not very strongly bonded to the plastic and they leach out very easily,” Pallister said.“Well, this could come home to roost in Alaska salmon,” Whitehouse said. Pallister agreed.Other witnesses said five developing countries are responsible for more than half of the world’s plastic ocean debris: China, Indonesia, the Philippines, Vietnam and Sri Lanka. Sullivan says he’s looking for ways the U.S. can work with other countries to stem the flow of land-based trash washing into the ocean.Pallister says he says a great deal of plastic from the commercial fishing industry, including nets, fish totes and buoys. He also says the government should also hold shippers financially responsible for containers they lose at sea.“Nobody’s talking about getting recovery for the plastics that are going to be coming out of those containers for generations, and it’s something that ought to be explored,” Pallister said.last_img read more

Rising gold prices trigger modest rally in gold ETFs

first_imgA rally in gold prices since Monday in the international markets in tandem with stock markets tumbling has had a positive impact on gold exchange traded funds (ETFs).Spot gold prices were ruling at around $1,077.80 an ounce on Wednesday in Singapore, after reaching a four-week high of $1,088.30 on Monday.In India too, gold prices gained Rs 225 per 10 gram to close at Rs 25,840 on Tuesday, after increasing by Rs 195 on Monday.HDFC Gold ETF, Goldman Sachs ETF, IDBI Gold ETF, Reliance Gold ETF, Axis Mutual Fund Gold ETF and Kotak Gold ETF were all trading in the green on Wesdnesday with gains ranging from 0.18% to 0.68%, after having suffered losses consistently last year, when gold prices dropped about 6.30%.Gold closed at Rs 25,390 on 31 December, 2015.However, over a 365-day period, the returns on gold ETFs are negative, ranging from 5% to over 90%, the worst performer being Kotak Gold ETF, falling by 90.68% in one year.The turmoil in West Asia, coupled with the unprecedented 7% crash on Chinese stock exchanges has triggered a fall across global stock markets, including India since Monday. The West Asian crisis is due to the execution of a Iranian Shiite cleric by Saudi Arabia recently.Indian stock markets were trading with losses just before closing, with the Sensex down 0.64% and Nifty trading with losses of 0.52%. Sensex losers included Wipro, Tata Motors, L&T, Infosys, Sun Pharma and Axis Bank, while Reliance Industries, Cipla and TCS were trading with minor gains.Silver too had gained since Monday and closed at Rs 33,700 per kg on Tuesday.Gold is often seen as a safe haven when stock markets fall and as an alternative investment during times of geopolitical and financial uncertainty, reported Reuters.last_img read more

Market at new high on inflation data for June Sensex crosses 32000

first_imgEmployees walk in a lobby at the Bombay Stock Exchange (BSE) during the announcement of the annual budget in Mumbai February 28, 2013 (representational image).Reuters fileRetail inflation data for June released the previous day lifted sentiments on Indian stock markets, with the benchmark indices Sensex and Nifty hitting new highs on Thursday in early trade. The Sensex crossed 32,000 while the 50-scrip Nifty was trading 65 points higher at 9,881.Top Sensex gainers were ITC, ICICI Bank and Axis Bank while stocks that were lifting the Nifty included ICICI Bank, ITC, Yes Bank and Indiabulls Housing Finance.Retail inflation hit a new low of 1.54 percent for June, buoying hopes of a rate cut by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) when it meets for its next monetary policy meeting. Though the data was accompanied in the form of weak factory output at 1.7 percent for May from 2.8 percent (revised) for April, according to Moneycontrol.com, it did not impact the bull run.BusinessLine said in an analysis on Thursday that in the context of retail inflation falling to 1.54 percent, the “clamour for rate cuts has only gotten stronger.” Retail inflation dropped to a level not seen in many years, the ETEnergyworld said, citing chief economic advisor Arvind Subramanian. “The last time we saw such inflation — according to slightly different CPI (IW) — was in 1999 and before that in August 1978,” he said. In other news, TCS will be starting the Q1 results season by declaring its financial performance on Thursday, followed by Infosys the next day.Staying with stock markets, Bloomberg said in a report that the party could be spoiled by the uncertainty prompted by the implementation of the goods and services tax (GST) from July 1. “We don’t expect a great quarter looking at the impact of GST,” the news agency quoted A K Prabhakar, head of research at IDBI Capital Market Services Ltd., as saying.Citi analysts Surendra Goyal and Vijit Jain foresee a 2.4 percent drop in profit for Sensex companies. Investors should be cautious of volatility in view of the quarterly results for quite some time, according to Deutsche Bank AG analysts. “We are entering a phase of no like-for-like results for the next six quarters. As a result, they “expect heightened volatility and hawk-like focus on management commentary,” Bloomberg quoted Manoj Menon and Mihir P. Shah as writing in a note to clients.last_img read more

US school district to allow some teachers to carry guns

first_imgIn the wake of a slew of shooting incidents in America, a US school district has voted to allow some teachers to carry guns to make schools safer and prevent incidents like the 2012 Sandy Hook school massacre.The Keene Independent School District in Johnson County, Texas, which has four campuses, voted 6 to 1 to approve the “Guardian Programme”.School board members approved the policy that would allow a few select staff members inside its four campuses to carry a gun. The carriers would be selected by the district, who would do so only if they wanted to and would carry a gun provided by the district. The measure will take affect sometime next year, as early as February or early March. Argyle in Texas adopted a similar proposal last year, as have several other districts across the state. A school district is a form of special-purpose district which serves to operate local public, primary and secondary schools.

CDH Proton Center is the first and only proton center in Illinois, the second center in the Midwest and one of only 14 proton centers nationwide. CDH Proton Center is the first and only proton center in Illinois, the second center in the Midwest and one of only 14 proton centers nationwide.Proton therapy is becoming more prevalent in cancer treatment as it is the most advanced form of radiation available. Proton beams are more precise, treating complex tumors while avoiding healthy tissues and critical structures. Proton therapy centers are beginning to spring up around the United States as physicians continue to see the benefits in cancer treatment. One center that has garnered much attention is the CDH Proton Center in Warrenville, Ill. Located in the western suburbs of Chicago, the CDH Proton Center was the idea of a group of radiation oncologists from Radiation Oncology Consultants Ltd., who began talking to multiple academic centers around the Chicago area in the early 2000s. Working with ProCure, a company that has built four similar centers thus far, the oncologists partnered with Central DuPage Hospital, a member of Cadence Health, to create a center where patients could receive state-of-the-art care. ProCure was responsible for all of the initial planning and raising capital, and the oncologists planned out the medical aspects. The CDH Proton Center is the only proton center in Illinois, the second center in the Midwest and one of only 14 proton centers nationwide. Since opening its doors in October 2010, the center has treated 1,500 patients from 28 states and 13 countries. The center’s 90 staff members include radiation oncologists, anesthesiologists and pediatric oncologists from the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago. Treatment OfferingsThe four-room center has one room with a gantry that rotates completely around the patient. The second room is a fixed-beam room that transmits protons in one direction. This room also has pencil-beam scanning, which allows for more precision. “If a tumor is perfectly round, you don’t need pencil beam scanning, but the pencil beam will help with complex tumors that curve around structures like the spinal cord or the brain stem,” said William Hartsell, M.D., radiation oncologist, Radiation Oncology Consultants Ltd., medical director, CDH Proton Center. The third and fourth treatment rooms have multiple beams called inclined beam lines, as well as robotic patient positioners that put the patient in the right position — either lying on a treatment couch or in a chair. The center uses a cyclotron that generates up to 230 million electron volts of protons. The cyclotron allows physicians to manipulate protons to release their energy at precise depths, which delivers high doses of radiation, spares vital tissues and organs near the cancer site, minimizes side effects and maximizes long-term function and quality of life. Road to Proton TherapyAccording to Hartsell, there were several significant challenges during the development and construction of the center. While many radiation oncologists around the city were very interested in working together to build a center, Hartsell said it was harder to convince hospitals and administrations to work together to build a facility. “We basically just tied ourselves with Cadence Health, even though we would have been happy to have a multihospital facility,” he said. Another challenge that the oncologists faced was getting through the state regulatory process. It took about a year and a half before Radiation Oncology Consultants Ltd. was able to get permission from the state to even begin building in October 2008. The construction of the facility itself also proved to be very complex, taking about two years to complete.Once the center was finished, the administration found that there was initially a lot of skepticism. “There are only 14 of these centers in the U.S., and when we opened, I think we were the ninth. So, there is a lot of either misinformation or lack of information that drives skepticism.” This challenge is slowly being overcome as the community is educated on proton therapy. “It’s been a process of education and getting to know what uses are appropriate for protons,” he said. “There were some people who were initially worried that all patients would be coming to us for treatment, but proton therapy is not the appropriate treatment for all patients. But for certain patients, it is an excellent treatment option.”Participation in Research and Clinical TrialsIn addition to treatment, CDH Proton Center participates in a number of clinical studies and research through national groups, such as the Children’s Oncology Group and the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group, that have research studies in hospitals and academic centers throughout the country. The center is also a part of the Proton Collaborative Group, which includes seven proton centers and three academic centers in the U.S. Through this group, the center has clinical trials on a number of different disease sites, including lung, breast and prostate cancer, as well as a registry study that tracks and reports patient outcomes. “We also have a couple of studies with Northwestern University in Chicago,” Hartsell said. “We have a study that’s being done though the Massachusetts General Proton Center of all children who are being treated with proton therapy around the country, and there is another study we’re participating in that looks at proton therapy versus standard radiation therapy for prostate cancer.”In addition to clinical trials, the center is conducting unique research and working with treatment in a different way than other centers. “We are working on treatment for lung cancers with people sitting up in their chair — every other place they are laying flat on a table — and within in the next year we will be treating patients with lung cancers and tumors in the mediastinum in the seated position. We think there is a big potential to spare even more tissue by doing that,” Hartsell explained. The center also serves as a training ground for physicians, physicists, dosimetrists and radiation therapists. Residents from multiple radiation oncology training programs around the country have spent time at the center, as well as international physicians. Throughout all of the clinical trials and research, the center follows every patient to document how well the treatment is working in controlling cancer, as well as any side effects. Focus on PediatricsAccording to Hartsell one of the unique features of proton therapy is its focus on pediatrics. Proton therapy’s ability to spare vital tissues and critical structures enables children to develop normally after treatment. The CDH Proton Center has a combined clinic with Lurie Children’s Hospital, and is the only proton therapy center that participates in the pediatric brain tumor consortium. “Cadence has had a cooperative program with Lurie Children’s Hospital for longer than we’ve been involved,” explained Hartsell. “About three and a half years ago, when the proton center was being built, we started talking with Lurie Hospital physicians about how we could work together to treat these patients, because many of them were being sent elsewhere for treatment.” Today, about 15 percent of patients at the center are pediatric patients, and about half of those patients are young enough that they require anesthesia during treatment. Radiation oncologists at the proton therapy center go to the brain tumor clinic at Lurie Children’s Hospital one day a week. Pediatric oncologists from Lurie Children’s Hospital come to the proton center one day a week for a clinic, and participate in the brain tumor conference another day of the week. “Most days of the week we’re in communication with the brain tumor team from Lurie Children’s Hospital,” Hartsell explained. “This collaboration has allowed radiation oncologists at the center to work closely together with pediatric oncologists, and also to work with other pediatric oncology programs in the area to treat children at the center as well,” he said. “The great thing about that is we review every child prospectively, so that when we are making decisions about treatment, it’s a team effort.” It Takes TimeFor those organizations interested in developing a proton center, Hartsell cautioned there are specific things to be aware of, including expense. “A lot of expense was involved, including the cost of keeping the center operating,” he said of the $130 million facility. While the center currently has a good cash flow to help pay off its debts, Hartsell stated that expense is not always the primary focus in proton therapy.“You go into proton therapy because of the advantages it will give to your patients. This is not something that is going to make a lot of money for a hospital or a university,” he explained. And while the cost may be high, the reward is as well. “What this is going to do is offer a unique, very valuable treatment for patients. As long as that’s the goal that you have in mind, then putting in a proton center will work,” he said, adding that there are some additional factors that organizations should take into account. “It depends on the number of patients that are treated and the patient mix. If you have a strong pediatric program, it makes a lot of sense.”Finally, Hartsell encouraged organizations to be patient with the process. “It is a long arduous process, but in seeing the results that we get, it is definitely worth it. You just have to be in it for the long run,” he said. “This is not something you can decide that ‘today we are going to put in protons,’ and then tomorrow you have a proton center. It takes multiple years of planning, multiple years of construction and a lot of groundwork to get things going.”SIDEBAR:Home Away From Home Central DuPage Hospital (CDH) in Winfield, Ill., a member of Cadence Health, has a large pediatric population, stemming from its partnership with the Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children’s Hospital of Chicago, as well as its newly constructed proton center. “We have about 400 long-stay pediatric patients a year that stay with us at least seven days,” said Chris Hensley, president of the Cadence Health Foundation. “And the proton therapy center offers outpatient treatment that is particularly effective for pediatric patients. We treat about 70 pediatric patients a year with proton therapy, and each of those treatment cycles can last between six and eight weeks.” These long-stay and proton therapy pediatric patients and their families often travel great distances and incur hotel costs on top of travel and treatment expenses, making CDH a prime location for a Ronald McDonald House where children and their families could have a home away from home during treatment.The Ronald McDonald House near Cadence Health — CDH Campus will be one of more than 330 houses around the globe; however, it will be the first one not at an academic center. “The goal is to bring families who are facing similar situations — a sick little one — together so that they can serve as kind of a support group for one another,” Hensley said. The 19,000-square-foot house will have 12 rooms — four suites with a bedroom and separate living area to accommodate proton therapy patients and their families, and eight regular rooms. The house will also include an executive kitchen where different volunteer organizations will cook lunch and dinner for the families every day of the year. Additional features will include a dining room, a living room with a two-story fireplace, a children’s playroom with games and televisions, and a library. The grounds of the facility will be located in a park-like setting with a garden, walking path, and play areas for younger patients and their siblings. While Ronald McDonald Charities does ask for a $10 donation per night, if a family cannot afford it they are allowed to stay at the house, no questions asked. “That comes back to the charitable nature of this endeavor. This is there for patients and their families as a way to help the sickest and smallest among us,” Hensley explained.The house, which will be located exactly 371 steps from the CDH’s pediatric wing and just five miles from the proton therapy center, will also have shuttle buses to transport patients to and from the proton center, should families not have a car. “That way they don’t have to be saddled with the additional expenses of renting a car for six weeks,” said Hensley.The house will cost about $6.5 million to build — the Cadence Health Foundation has committed to raising $6 million, and Ronald McDonald Charities will raise the additional $1.5 million, which includes $1 million to operate the facility during the first year after construction — and will be completely funded through charitable donations from individuals, corporations and foundations. Fundraising efforts are already fully underway, and the Cadence Health Foundation has raised $5.4 million since its kickoff event in February 2013. “The community has really come together to support this house,” Hensley said. “Our auxiliary, the Cadence Health Auxiliary, has committed in excess of a million dollars. We also had a family foundation called the Topfer Family Foundation commit a million dollar gift.” CDH employees have also raised $290,000 through a workplace giving campaign. Once the house is totally funded and open, it will be operated and staffed by Ronald McDonald House Charities, and guests will be selected mostly on a first-come, first-served basis. “The one stipulation is if you live within 10 miles of the house, you are not able to spend the night,” Hensley explained. “You are still able to utilize the house during the day, but if you live within 10 miles, you aren’t able to stay the night because the assumption is that you live close enough.” The groundbreaking ceremony for the house took place March 18, 2014, with construction beginning shortly after. Hensley said that the house should be completely framed before next winter, at which point interior work will begin. The projected opening date is Feb. 14, 2015 — Valentine’s Day. “We are looking forward to partnering with Ronald to enhance the experience and increase the satisfaction of our patients that are at the proton center and at our hospital,” Hensley concluded.

Strong dollar slows spending TTF

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T The Tourism & Transport Forum (TTF) has attributed the slowdown in tourist spending habits to the current strength of the Australian dollar and a lack of industry investment.According to figures released in the latest International Visitor Survey, international visitors to Australia increased in the first half of the year but there was a downturn in spending.“This will challenge the tourism industry’s goal of doubling visitor expenditure by 2020,” said TTF chief executive John Lee.“The low yield is further proof that investment is needed in product, service and experience.”International visitor arrivals for the year to June 2012 increased 1.4 percent to 5.5 million.“It is good news that arrivals grew by 3.8 percent from January to June, but it’s worrying that visitor spend grew four times slower at only 0.8 percent,” Mr Lee said.However, Mr Lee was quick to recognise positives drawn from respondents’ results.“There are some encouraging leisure signals contained within the survey, with markets like Taiwan recording strong growth partly as a result of Tourism Australia active marketing.”last_img read more

Outcry over woman arrested for having an abortion

first_imgThere was outrage on Wednesday over parliament’s failure to amend abortion legislation after police in Nicosia detained a woman who had an abortion and the doctor at a private clinic who carried out the procedure.The two appeared before a court on Tuesday which remanded them in custody for five days. She had been eight weeks pregnant. Although illegal except under special circumstances, it is a well-known fact that private clinics carry out abortions freely in Cyprus.Police got involved when the woman’s partner, who didn’t know she was going ahead with the procedure, caused a disturbance at the clinic after he found out. He later damaged property belonging to his family and his partner’s.Police were told that the woman had been accompanied to the clinic by her partner’s mother.During her arrest on Monday evening, the woman told police  she didn’t know it was an offence and she was sorry.The doctor was arrested later that evening.The woman, who already had 19-month-old child, told police she had found out about the pregnancy a month earlier. She had discussed the possibility of terminating her pregnancy because they could not afford raising a second child, as both of them are unemployed.The doctor denied committing any offence, arguing that he had examined the woman and determined that it was a problematic pregnancy.Police, however, were told that the Makarios children’s hospital where her pregnancy was confirmed had told the woman it was a normal pregnancy.The case has laid bare the hypocrisy surrounding the issue of abortion, as it is well known that abortions routinely take place in private clinics with the authorities turning the blind eye.An amendment to the law has been languishing in parliament for almost three years apparently because parties are afraid to discuss the issue due to opposition from the Church. Although submitted in early 2015, the amendment has never even been discussed.Rights groups and women spoke out on Wednesday after it was first published by daily Politis.“We have been turning a blind eye for decades,” said Suzana Pavlou, director of the Mediterranean Institute of Gender Studies (Migs), an NGO fighting discrimination against women.Pavlou said what was important was to have the right of women to choose recognised.According to Cypriot law, abortions are illegal unless: there is risk to life of the pregnant woman; If the pregnancy would cause physical, mental, or psychological damage to the woman (or to any existing child she may have) that is greater than if the pregnancy was to be terminated; under circumstances which, if the pregnancy were not terminated, it would seriously jeopardise the social status of the pregnant woman or that of her family;  serious physical or psychological abnormalities if the child were born; and rape or other sexual crime.The procedure also needs the opinion of two qualified medical practitioners.There is no gestational limit specified in the law.The silence surrounding abortions means the procedures are taking place unregulated.“We don’t know what the situation is in terms of numbers,” Pavlou told the Cyprus Mail.Pavlou also voiced concern over the effects the arrest of a doctor would have in the future.“Which doctor will do this now? It will limit the options even more,” as doctors won’t risk going to prison.The other big problem, according to Pavlou, is that while banning abortions, the state is “doing absolutely nothing on prevention.”Migs wants the matter to be discussed now on the basis of the right of women to choose.“We need to dispel the myth that these are decisions that women take lightly,” she said.In the case under investigation, the woman had cancelled her first appointment at the clinic before she decided after much thought to go ahead with the procedure.Diko chairman and presidential candidate Nicolas Papadopoulos weighed into the issue, tweeting that the police ought to release the woman.“You don’t need the five-day remand of a woman to investigate an abortion case.”Akel MP Skevi Koukouma said the bill on abortions should be put to the vote immediately. At the same time sex education must be introduced at all levels as well as social support of the woman during pregnancy, birth and care of the children.Koukouma said the woman must have the first and last say.“For the time being we live in a state where the rights of a woman are first diluted by the positions and the needs of conservatism, the church and the archbishop and then they are recognised,” she said.Former Edek MP Roulla Mavronicola called on the House legal affairs committee to discuss the bill immediately.“It is unacceptable in the European Cyprus of 2017 to arrest a woman and place her in custody for five days because it was impossible for her to have a second child due to financial and other problems,” she said. “When will we realise that the body and life of a woman belongs to her?”Special adviser in preparing national strategy to protect children from sexual abuse, Anastasia Papadopoulou said abortion certainly should not exist as an option in an ideal world.“But to put a woman in jail, on a five-day remand, because she made a choice about her body and life, really says something about our society and justice system,” she said. “We are very willing to easily condemn and punish (for specific matters) naturally avoiding discussion.
