Worker protections paramount in NAFTA talks labour minister says

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. — Protecting workers’ rights is a fundamental Canadian objective in ongoing negotiations to update the free-trade agreement with the United States and Mexico, Labour Minister Patty Hajdu said on Friday after consultations with key union representatives.Saying organized labour is squarely behind the federal government’s push for the incorporation of “progressive” rules in the North American Free Trade Agreement, Hajdu said it’s critical the three countries reach a common understanding about the rights of labour and its importance to a healthy economy.“The rights of Canadian workers is far from ‘virtue signalling’,” Hajdu said in an interview with The Canadian Press. “It’s about ensuring that we don’t have a race to the bottom where companies can move their labour to other countries that don’t have those protections for workers.”Friday’s meeting comes days after a number of pro-trade Republicans met with U.S. President Donald Trump to urge him not to cancel NAFTA as he has threatened. The latest round of talks wrapped in Mexico City late last month, with negotiators saying they made little progress on key issues.Canada’s labour movement has long expressed concerns about lower wages in Mexico and what they see as substandard worker protections in “right-to-work” American states. Canada has ratified all eight core conventions of the International Labour Organization and its proposals on NAFTA include a demand the other two countries follow suit.While Mexico has gone some distance toward ratification, the U.S. has largely resisted such a move.Hajdu called the right to organize and bargain collectively a fundamental right of workers, saying a strong labour movement is inextricably linked to a thriving middle class. Canada, she said, plans to stand firm in its demands to improve on the decades-old trade deal.“We expect this (deal) to be better than what we had in the previous NAFTA arrangement,” Hajdu said. “We’re not going to back down and accept a deal that doesn’t protect the rights of Canada — and part of that is protecting our labour movement, part of that is protecting our workers.”Among those on hand for the discussions were representatives of the country’s largest private- and public-sector unions, Unifor and the Canadian Union of Public Employees, and the umbrella Canadian Labour Congress. The groups were pleased Hajdu had taken the time, said Steven Martin, business manager with International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 353 that hosted the event.Martin called it “huge for labour” that the minister was undertaking the consultations.“It was very reassuring to see that the government is asking labour about labour issues and what our thoughts are,” Martin said. “It’s not just the wages. It also has to do with the differences in working standards, and a race the bottom is not the way that we need to go.”Talks at renegotiating NAFTA resume in Washington next week after several rocky rounds in which Canada’s labour demands — including gender-equality language — have been among obstacles yet to be overcome.Labour leaders also raised concerns at Friday’s meeting about U.S. President Donald Trump’s demands around the “rules of origin” under which products crossing the border qualify for duty exemptions. Trump wants an increase in content produced in North America in order to qualify and a minimum level of American content.Organized labour understands Canada’s approach, said Hajdu, who expressed satisfaction at having direct channels for union input during the trade talks.“They want us to continue fighting for the inclusion of this labour chapter.”The next round of NAFTA negotiations is expected to begin in Montreal in January. read more

2 parties seemingly mismatched spending bosses team to make Washington work for

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email by Andrew Taylor, The Associated Press Posted Jun 17, 2014 3:11 pm MDT 2 parties’ seemingly mismatched spending bosses team to make Washington work for a change WASHINGTON – On the face of it, one of the most powerful pairings in Washington is a hopeless mismatch — a former social worker and liberal Democrat from Baltimore’s working-class Fells Point neighbourhood and an old-school, cigar-chomping GOP conservative raised in a dry county in the mountains of southeastern Kentucky.But in a bitterly divided Congress, the odd couple of Sen. Barbara Mikulski and Rep. Harold Rogers is a rare bipartisan success story.Mikulski and Rogers are chiefly responsible for divvying up $1 trillion in federal spending as chairwoman of the Senate Appropriations Committee and chairman of the same committee in the House. While their personal backgrounds could hardly be more different, their operating styles are remarkably similar.Both are pragmatists in a Congress littered with ideologues. Neither minces words or tolerates foolishness. Both prefer deal-making to speechifying. And each understands that in order to strike a deal the other side needs to claim some wins.“Hal is a conservative but he is not a hard-headed ideologue. He’s a realist,” said former Appropriations Chairman David Obey, D-Wis. “He’s good at saying, ‘Look, I’ll level with you. This is what I can do and this is what I can’t do.’”Mikulski has a reputation for toughness though her once-fearsome temper seems to have mellowed in recent years. “Her BS quotient is very, very low. She doesn’t tolerate BS and she doesn’t dish it out,” Obey said. “She is very pragmatic, very hard-nosed.”Rogers and Mikulski face an enormously difficult task: advancing 12 spending bills setting the annual operating budgets for federal agencies and most government programs, ranging from funding the armed forces and overseas military operations to air traffic control, the national parks and forecasting the weather.House and Senate leaders used to give great deference to the committees but their standing has slipped of late. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., was a longtime Appropriations Committee insider but has usually given short shrift to the panel’s pleas for floor time to debate its bills. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, barely hid his disdain for the panel’s parochial, clubby ways during his first two decades in the House. One of his first acts as speaker was to impose a ban on popular home-district pet projects known as earmarks.The result is that many lawmakers have less reason to vote for spending bills. The appropriations process is a challenge in good years. Amid broader battles over taxes and whether to expand or shrink the government, it has been derailed in recent ones.Boehner, for example, sided with the GOP’s tea party wing in 2013 and saddled Rogers with a budget outline that pleased conservatives but shortchanged domestic programs and doomed appropriators to failure last summer. Rogers could only watch as tea party forces steamrolled House leaders into a government shutdown last fall.What eventually came out of it was a two-year budget deal that paved the way for Rogers and Mikulski to get the process back on track. In January they accomplished several months’ worth of work in a few weeks, negotiating and winning passage of a $1.1 trillion catchall spending bill for 2014.Jim Dyer, a former Republican staff director for House appropriators, said Rogers and Mikulski were under a lot of pressure to reach a deal that could pass both houses. “If they had failed, people would have thrown the last shovel of dirt on appropriations,” Dyer said. “Now, what you have is … the only show in town currently working well — and these two people deserve the credit.”With a strengthened hand and a common spending ceiling for 2015, the two appropriations chairmen are off to a promising start, handling this year’s spending bills the old-fashioned way, with open debate and amendments instead of waiting until year’s end and cobbling together one massive omnibus bill behind closed doors.Mikulski first bill was slated to hit the Senate floor Tuesday — a hybrid Mikulski cobbled together from three measures funding the departments of Commerce, Justice, Transportation, Housing and Urban Development and Agriculture. The Senate is likely to spend most of two weeks on it. The House is scheduled to open debate Wednesday on Rogers’ spending bill for the Pentagon.“She’s determined to get the train back on track with appropriations, as am I,” Rogers said of Mikulski. “To do that you have to understand the other side’s point of view and perspective and needs, politically to get the bills passed on the floors of both bodies.”Mikulski says her approach is “to focus with civility and courtesy. Old school values. Don’t do surprises or stunts and negotiate directly and not through the press.”Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell describes Mikulski as forceful and results oriented. “I think she’s terrific.”“She is no nonsense … and that really gives her the credibility to work with her colleagues that other people wish they had,” said former Democratic Leader Tom Daschle.Mikulski is more engaging and approachable than her predecessors as appropriations chairman, the late Sens. Robert C. Byrd, D-W.Va., and Daniel Inouye, D-Hawaii. She’s spent decades honing relationships with members of both parties, learning their needs and end goals.“She knows that if you know somebody and what they want you can help them be successful. And when you help people be successful, Republicans or Democrats, that’s how you move bills,” said Democratic Sen. Patty Murray of Washington, a Mikulski protege. read more

Ed Reed Turns Down 3Year Contract Offer from Texans

Ed Reed, the nine-time Pro Bowl safety with the champion Baltimore Ravens, reportedly turned down a free agent contract offer from the Houston Texans worth about $12 million, according to the Baltimore Sun.The 34-year-old Reed is seeking a similar salary to the $7.2 million he earned last year. One of the overwhelming issues why Reed may not command the $7 million salary, however, is his declining age.Reed, who is an 11-year veteran, missed 15 tackles last season, which tied is tied for seventh-most among safeties, according to ProFootballFous.com. But he did haul in four interceptions last season, as well as 15 pass deflections as the Ravens captured their second Super Bowl title.The Texans would ultimately wanted to land Reed because they ranked seventh in yards per pass attempt. Safety Glover Quin signed with the Detroit Lions in free agency, which led the Texans to pursue Reed.Houston went 12-4 last season, making it the Divisional Round of the playoffs before being defeated by the New England Patriots, 41-28. Tom Brady torched its secondary for 344 yards and three touchdowns in that game.Meanwhile, Ravens owner Steve Bisciotti said on NFL Network’s “NFL Total Access” on Tuesday that he is confident that Reed will ultimately decide to stay with the organization. But Bisciotti quickly put into perspective how it may be tough to sign Reed to a new contract feasible for both sides, due to the approaching salary-cap restraints.“It will be tough, but we’ve got guys that will fill in,” Bisciotti said. “Ed is a special guy and I’m encouraged that Ozzie’s still talking with him.”The Ravens and Texans are continuing to talk to Reed while he continues to wait for a better offer, but he does not have the luxury to keep waiting if he wishes to play next season because they will clearly move on. read more

Microsoft Will Release Hardcore Games For Kinect

first_imgThe Kinect for Xbox 360 has turned into a rather lucrative property for Microsoft. Naturally, the company is pushing to have more games developed for the peripheral. . A handful of Kinect games for hardcore gamers will be released this year. Senior producer of Microsoft’s gaming department, Kevin Unangst, stated that this is just the “scratching the surface” for hardcore gamers. Ubabgst added that, unlike the Wii, however, Microsoft isn’t targeting all of its games for the Kinect.Nintendo abandoned the hardcore gamers with the Wii. That was fine for families, children, and older players, but ignored those games who made Nintendo what it was. Microsoft appears to be trying to avoid that mistake. Via X Bit Labslast_img read more

One step closer Theresa May gets green light to start Brexit process

first_img 77 Comments http://jrnl.ie/3286001 10,394 Views By AFP Monday 13 Mar 2017, 10:48 PM Mar 13th 2017, 10:48 PM One step closer: Theresa May gets green light to start Brexit process The UK Prime Minister has said she will trigger Article 50 by the end of March. Image: Geert Vanden Wijngaert AP/Press Association Images British Prime Minister Theresa May prepares to address a media conference at an EU summit in Brussels last week THE UK PARLIAMENT has given Prime Minister Theresa May approval to start Britain’s withdrawal from the European Union.The House of Lords rejected a last-ditch attempt to amend a bill empowering May to begin Brexit, paving the way for it to become law as early as Tuesday.The prime minister could then trigger Article 50 of the EU’s Lisbon Treaty at any time, starting two years of talks that will end with Britain becoming the first country to leave the bloc.May’s spokesperson sought to play down speculation she would send her notification letter to the European Council on Tuesday, when the bill is expected to receive royal assent from Queen Elizabeth II.“We have been clear that the prime minister will trigger Article 50 by the end of March,” her spokesperson said ahead of the vote, heavily emphasising the word “end”.But the prospect of an imminent start to Brexit was enough to push the nationalist devolved government in Scotland into calling for a new independence referendum.May has said Britain will leave Europe’s single market in order to cut immigration, a move that the Scottish National Party (SNP), which is in power in Edinburgh, has warned would be highly damaging to jobs and growth.SNP First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said since the June referendum vote for Brexit that Scotland, where a majority wanted to stay in the EU, sought a different future.Today she made good on her warning, promising to give Scotland “a choice at the end of this process” by early 2019 — before Britain leaves the EU.The European Commission, however, quickly responded, saying that Scotland would have to reapply to join the EU rather than inheriting Britain’s membership.Countdown to Brexit May has the power to block the vote and said that another referendum, after Scots voted by 55% to reject independence in 2014, would only cause “uncertainty and division”.But Sturgeon’s call pushes to centre stage one of the prime minister’s biggest concerns about Brexit — that it could lead to the breakup of the United Kingdom — as she prepares to fire the starting gun.The other 27 European leaders are prepared for Britain to trigger Article 50, which begins a two-year countdown to Brexit, this week.However, speculation is growing that it may now be delayed until after a summit in Rome on 25 March to mark the EU’s 60th birthday — timing that would likely be welcomed in Brussels.Once May has notified the EU of her decision by letter, the bloc will take just 48 hours to issue its first draft proposal for the negotiations, with a follow-up meeting planned on 6 April.The actual talks are not expected to begin for months.The bill empowering May to begin Brexit was forced on the government by a Supreme Court ruling and was held up when the House of Lords voted for amendments demanding guarantees for EU nationals’ rights and a parliamentary vote on the final withdrawal deal.Brexit minister David Davis successfully urged MPs to overturn the changes earlier today, saying: “We will not enter the negotiations with our hands tied.”The House of Lords then conceded, passing the bill unamended late on Monday.‘Shame on you’ The Lords amendment demanding protections for more than three million Europeans living in Britain was defeated by 335 votes to 287 by MPs — prompting shouts of “shame on you” from protesters outside.Around 150 people had gathered to urge MPs to back the change, including Karin Templin, a 39-year-old architect who was born in the US but is now British.“I’m appalled at the UK government, at this stupid ridiculous game that means they won’t guarantee the rights of everybody who wants to stay in their home and in their jobs. I’m disgusted,” she said.May’s government says it wants to guarantee Europeans’ rights to stay in Britain, but cannot until EU leaders offer similar rights to British expatriates.The other amendment that was overturned would have given parliament the right to decide whether to accept the final Brexit deal.May has promised lawmakers a vote on the deal but only if she accepts it — insisting her ability to walk away will strengthen her hand in negotiations.- © AFP 2017Poll: Should Scotland hold another referendum on independence from the UK?Read: Kellyanne Conway on surveillance through phones, TVs and ‘microwaves that turn into cameras’Read: Texas politician hits out at abortion law with ‘satirical’ anti-masturbation law Share Tweet Email British Prime Minister Theresa May prepares to address a media conference at an EU summit in Brussels last week Image: Geert Vanden Wijngaert AP/Press Association Images As the clock ticks down, get all the best Brexit news and analysis in your inbox: Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Centrales à charbon la banque mondiale limite ses subventions aux pays les

first_imgCentrales à charbon : la banque mondiale limite ses subventions aux pays les plus pauvresAprès avoir annoncé ne plus financer les projets d’huile de palme responsables d’une trop grande déforestation, la Banque mondiale poursuit son verdissement en s’attaquant au charbon. L’institution d’aide internationale a en effet décidé de limiter sensiblement ses subventions aux projets de centrales à charbon, en les limitant aux pays les plus pauvres.Désormais, seuls les pays les plus pauvres pourront obtenir une aide financière de la Banque mondiale pour le financement de centrales à charbon, rapporte le site du Guardian. La banque entend ainsi privilégier le déploiement des énergies renouvelables, et n’accorder de subventions qu’aux pays n’ayant pas la possibilité de se tourner vers des projets plus propres.À lire aussiLa Méditerranée est officiellement la mer la plus polluée par le plastiqueIl y a un an environ, en mars 2010, la Banque mondiale avait suscité une vive polémique en finançant une centrale à charbon en Afrique du Sud, l’une des plus polluantes au monde. Un prêt de quelque 3,75 milliards de dollars avait été accordé au pays, et de nombreuses associations environnementales s’étaient insurgées contre cette décision.Aujourd’hui encore, les écologistes sont sceptiques quant au verdissement affiché des subventions de la Banque mondiale. “Cette stratégie est décevante. La banque mondiale semble vouloir verdir ses activités tout en continuant ses pratiques douteuses habituelles”, estime Alison Doig, de l’ONG Christian Aid. “Alors qu’elle propose une interdiction des prêts pour le charbon dans les pays à revenu intermédiaire, la banque poursuivra ses investissements dans les énergies fossiles dans les pays les plus pauvres, les condamnant à un futur à haute teneur en carbone”, déplore-t-elle.Le 6 avril 2011 à 19:44 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

ImageTagging Company Stipple Raises 3 Million

first_imgPublishers and marketers are using it to provide mouse-over callouts to social share tags and e-commerce capabilities as well. Whether an image is used as entertainment or as a marketing or commerce prompt, Stipple remains neutral, but its revenue is generated from the marketing and commerce-oriented initiatives. Image content is monetized in two ways, through affiliate deals where clicks on a “shop” tag are paid out, or through straight advertising campaigns that marketers initiate through enticing viewers to like a brand tagged in the image or click through to a video. Revenue shares are split 50/50, says Flemings.So far, Flemings says Stipple has 100 million tagged product images in its database. The company claims it’s tagging 1 million photos per day, with brands such as Nike, L’Oreal, Zappos and Nordstrom using the service. When a publisher uses those images on its website, the affiliate payments begin as visitors engage with the photos. And since the introduction of Twitter Cards, which allow publishers to embed rich media “cards” in their tweets, including a tweet-sized photo card, Flemings says publishers can tweet a photo instead of a static link, and Stipple’s API carries over the embedded callouts in that photo. “Photos can contain teasers, be shoppable and so on, and now all of those can be used in Twitter.” Further, Flemings notes engagement rates with Stipple-tagged images far surpass standard display ads. “The advertising model today is based on interruption,” he says. “Publishers provide their content for free and users tolerate being interrupted by an ad as part of the service. And the engagement rates with those ads continue to plummet, which is forcing marketers to be even more interruptive.”Stipple-tagged photos, Flemings counters, average 78 mouse-overs and 35 clicks per thousand—rates that translate to 7.8 percent and 3.5 percent, respectively. “Our business model is very simple,” he says. “We don’t spam people and we put accurate information in photos. We protect the social contract with people, which has allowed us to get these engagement rates.”Stipple’s latest financing came from Sands Capital. The company previously raised $5 million in the first part of its series A round and $2 million in seed capital in 2010. Other backers include Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers, Floodgate, Relevance Capital and Justin Timberlake. Images are one of the most sharable formats across the web, but the data associated with those images gets lost each time they’re shared from one platform to another. Stipple, which just received $3 million in the second part of a series A round, plans to expand its service, which allows publishers, marketers and users to tag images not just with author attributions, but social and e-commerce calls to action.To get a sense of what Stipple does for images, founder Rey Flemings offers this scenario: “You pull out your cell phone and take a picture. At that moment, your phone knows where you are, the time and location and saves this information to the file. You upload the image to Facebook and does that information stay with the photograph? No.”Flemings cautions that Stipple is not a DRM solution—”We’re not a photo cop company”—but the service does do more than simply provide sticky attribution tags. last_img read more

Quack beats cancer patient to death

first_imgMap of CumillaA cancer patient has died as he was beaten for refusing to take more after gulping 60 bottles of rose water in the name of spiritual treatment by a quack, locally known as kabiraj, at Chhatadda village of Chandina upazia in Cumilla, reports UNB.The deceased is Shamim Khan, a resident of the village.Locals said Shamim had been suffering from cancer for long.He went to Abul Kalam, who was locally known as master of spirits (Jiner Badshah), for the treatment of his cancer spiritually while Kalam asked him to collect 107 bottles of rose water and eight towels for the treatment.Kalam told Shamim to drink all the 107 bottles of rose water at once, while Shamim managed to drink a total of 60 bottles on Monday night.As Shamim was unable to drink more rose water, Kalam started to beat him brutally and at one stage, Shamim collapsed on the ground and died.After Shamim’s death, his father filed a case with Chandina police station and police arrested the quack, said officer-in-charge of Chandina police station Shamsul Islam.last_img read more

The Yoga Master who Escaped Prison Through the Food Slot

first_imgYoga is a very popular way to work out and has a lot of health benefits, including increasing muscle strength and tone and increasing your flexibility. Apparently, it has another benefit that they don’t list at the studios that teach it: It can help you escape from prison. Choi Gap-Bok, age 50, is a highly skilled yoga master who has been practicing yoga for more than twenty years.On September 12, 2012, Choi was arrested on suspicion of robbery, according to the Yonhap News Agency. The arresting officers took him to the police station in Daegu, South Korea and put him in a holding cell.Daegu, Korea.The yogi was not stranger to cells as he had been in and out of detention for a variety of reasons. He’d spent a sum total of 23 years behind bars and had filled his time practicing yoga — a skill he would put to an unusual use during this trip to jail.Choi remained in his cell for five days, but, early in the morning of September 17th, he coated his upper body in lotion and escaped from his cell by squeezing through the food slot at the bottom of the cell. He snuck past the three officers on duty, who were all asleep, and slipped out of a narrow window.According to Soranews24.com, he first got his head through the slot then wriggled out his right arm and shoulders. Apparently, his rump stuck about halfway through, but he pulled down his shorts and managed to free himself.Choi Gap-Bok had spent much of his life behind bars, but this time he insisted he’d been framed.An investigator reviewed the video footage after the escape and said Choi accomplished the feat in under a minute, moving flexibly like an octopus. Choi was 5’4”, and the slot he wiggled out of was about 5.9 inches tall by 17.7 inches wide. To keep the guards from noticing too quickly, he had arranged pillows under his blanket to make it look as if he were sleeping, just the way he saw it done in Shawshank Redemption.The Korea Joongang Daily reported that after Choi escaped the jail, he ran into a nearby residence and stole car keys and a credit card. Police checkpoints had been established, but he ditched the car a couple of hundred yards from the checkpoint and took off on foot for nearby Mount Nam.A manhunt ensued for the next two days, with helicopters, tracking dogs, and many searchers. Choi kept moving, working his way through the mountains, hiding by day and only moving by night, and managed to avoid being spotted.23 years of yoga practice gave Choi the flexibility of a master escapologist.He eventually ended up in Miryang. A villager saw him boarding a bus to another city and reported it to the police, but Choi told the driver he was feeling motion sickness and asked to be let off the bus. The police resumed their search for him in the surrounding area, finding occasional evidence of his presence. A farmer named Lee reported that he had a note from Choi in his house.He didn’t report it right away, thinking it was some sort of prank, but then realized that some items were missing from his home, including a couple packs of ramen. The note read “I am sorry,” and was signed “Framed Thief Choi.”The police began to search around the area of Hanam-eup with some 400 officers and, again, mobilizing air surveillance and following up on numerous sightings of the escaped thief.He was finally discovered on September 22nd, after six days of being on the run, on the roof of an apartment building in Milyang, about 30 km south of Daegu, hiding in a cardboard box.Read another story from us: Breaking Out of the Joint – 3 Unbelievable Escapes from PrisonWhen police caught him, he continued to tell them that he had been framed. Unmoved, police returned him to custody in Daegu, putting him in a cell with no bars right next to the one he had previously absconded from. The food slot in the new cell was only 4.3 inches tall and about 5 inches wide.last_img read more

Joseph Warren – The Greatest Founding Father Youve Probably Never Heard Of

first_imgDuring the years when the American colonies were moving toward demanding independence, men from all walks of life were finding their willingness to fight. One of those men was Dr. Joseph Warren. Warren was many things during the course of his life: a physician, a political leader, a mason, and a soldier. He was the leader of the revolution in Boston and a moving force that helped shape the nation as it came to be. He was born in 1741, to a family that had been living in Massachusetts for around 150 years by the time of the Revolution.Joseph WarrenHe went to Harvard University and became one of a string of revolutionary leaders who graduated from that institution in the pre-war days, joining such great thinkers as John Adams, Samuel Cooper, John Hancock and Sam Adams, according to the US National Library of Medicine.AdChoices广告inRead invented by TeadsUpon graduating, Warren started apprenticing with a local physician, not only learning the ways of medicine, but also absorbing the colonial truism that people in the medical profession had a responsibility to protect the public’s well-being in any manner they could, from working in public clinics to interacting with Boston’s elite and its political leaders.Portrait from Boston Monthly Magazine, 1826It was his contact with the latter that led to his becoming involved in the greater world of politics. He became a Freemason, joining and eventually becoming the Grand Master of St. Andrew’s Lodge at the young age of 28, according to History.com. The Lodge was headquartered in the Green Dragon Tavern and included members such as Paul Revere, Samuel Adams, and other members of the Sons of Liberty.Green Dragon TavernBy 1772, Warren had been named “Grand Master of Masons for the Continent of America” by the Grand Master of Scotland, which is somewhat ironic considering that it was through the Masons that he was able to develop an extensive network for the purpose of gathering intelligence and political standing.Joseph Warren was becoming a public figure long before 1772, however. He first began to gain recognition in 1766, when he began writing against the Stamp Act, which was the first internal tax the British Government imposed on the colonists.Warren (right) offering to serve General Israel Putnam as a private before the Battle of Bunker HillHis ties to the Sons of Liberty really began to develop at about the same time. Because his medical practice gave him entrance to places at all levels of society, and he was respected by all, he had access to people all over the area, and they were inclined to pay heed to his words.After the Boston Massacre in 1770, city leaders would give speeches on the anniversaries of the incident. In 1772, the featured speaker was none other than Dr. Warren.Boston Massacre site. Photo by Ingfbruno CC BY-SA 3.0It was perhaps the first time that he personally and publicly spoke out about the colonists’ grievances with the British Government and the need to be free of it. He spoke again on the anniversary in 1775, wearing a toga as a symbol of democracy.That time, he spoke to a larger audience and made his point even more forcefully, making references to taking action which might even result in bloodshed. That time his speech was also watched by many British soldiers, and even officers, who were hoping to intimidate him. Dr. Warren, however, remained undeterred.The Death of General Warren at the Battle of Bunker Hill by John TrumbullIn the aftermath of the Boston Tea Party, which occurred in December 1773, the British government passed a law that the colonial patriots referred to as the “Intolerable Acts”.The Acts closed the port at Boston until restitution was made for the tea that was lost. In response, the colonists of the county agreed to a set of resolutions against the Acts, noting that there was no obedience due to them.The document was called the Suffolk Resolves, and its author was Joseph Warren.The document contained a radical response to the Intolerable Acts, outlining things like a boycott of British goods and calling local militias to prepare for armed resistance.The Suffolk Resolves House, 2009.Photo by Jameslwoodward CC BY-SA 3.0The completed text of Suffolk Resolves was carried to the Continental Congress in Philadelphia, in May 1774, by none other than Paul Revere, and they were overwhelmingly endorsed by that body, bringing the colonies a large step closer to revolution. That wasn’t the first time Dr. Warren had entrusted Paul Revere with a critical task.In the middle of April, he received word through his intelligence network that British troops intended to cross the Charles River and seize the militia’s supply of cannons and ammunition from where they were stored in Concord.Paul RevereGeneral Gage, the British Commander, also expected to be able to capture Sam Adams and John Hancock in nearby Lexington, making an even more powerful statement about the fruitlessness of colonial rebellion. The need to spread the word about these plans is what prompted Dr. Warren to send out his two messengers, one by land, and one by sea, ordering Paul Revere’s famous ride through the countryside to alert the locals.He was one of the rebels who were harassing the British troops the next day as they tried to execute their plan, and his role in the entire exercise led to him being named the president of the provincial congress, effectively making him the head of the rebellion for the colony. A couple of weeks after his election as president, the provincial congress made him a Major General.Joseph Warren Statue located at Forest Hills Cemetery, Boston MA. Photo by Hoyom CC BY-SA 4.0The British were under siege in Boston following the failed attacks at Lexington and Concord, but the rebels needed more resources to force the British out of the city.Benedict Arnold told Dr. Warren about Fort Ticonderoga in New York which wasn’t heavily protected and had a sizable armory with cannons. Dr. Warren ordered Arnold and his troops to attack the fort and obtain the weapons. The attack was successful, and the cannons were instrumental in removing the British from Boston in 1776. Unfortunately, Joseph Warren didn’t live to see the effective removal of the British from his city.Benedict ArnoldJust days after his appointment as a major general, he volunteered to join the militiamen who were defending Breed’s Hill (often mistaken for the Battle of Bunker Hill). Without military training or experience, and against the advice of the generals there, he took up a musket and put himself at the front lines of the soldiers defending the barricade against an entire British army. He had earlier had a premonition of his end and declared to Betsey Palmer, “Come, my little girl, drink a glass of wine with me for the last time, for I shall go to the hill tomorrow and I shall never come off.”Related Video: U.S. Marines Corps Celebrate 242 years of LegacyJoseph Warren died of a gunshot wound to the head while he was acting as part of the covering force helping patriot militia escape the British troops. It was a truly heroic action. After the battle, the British buried him in a shallow grave, and it was nearly a year later that patriot forces were able to exhume his body and have it moved to Boston.Read another story from us: Why the True Founder of America’s Industrial Revolution Isn’t in the History BooksPaul Revere identified Dr. Warren’s skull himself, recognizing his own silverwork in Warren’s mouth. The body was moved again several times before finally coming to a permanent home at Forest Hills Cemetery in 1885, more than 100 years after his death. Many contemporaries of Warren considered that if he had lived, he would have become the first President of the United States instead of Washington. Sadly, we shall never know.last_img read more

Cervista HPV HR, designed to detect the 14 high-risk types of human papillomavirus (HPV) known to cause cervical cancer, is the first HPV DNA test approved by the FDA in more than 10 years. Cervista HPV 16/18 is the first HPV test approved for genotyping for HPV types 16 and 18, known to be associated with approximately 70 percent of all cervical cancers in the U.S. The Cervista HPV HR test has been approved for two uses: – To screen patients with atypical squamous cells of undetermined significance (ASC-US) cervical cytology results to determine the need for referral to colposcopy. – Used adjunctively with cervical cytology to screen women 30 years and older to assess the presence or absence of high-risk HPV types. The Cervista HPV16/18 test has been approved for two uses: – In women 30 years and older the test may be used adjunctively with the Cervista HPV HR test in combination with cervical cytology to assess the presence or absence of specific high-risk HPV types. – Used adjunctively with the Cervista HPV HR test in patients with ASC-US cervical cytology results, to assess the presence or absence of specific high-risk HPV types. The results of this test are not intended to prevent women from proceeding to colposcopy. It is also noted that for both the Cervista HPV HR test and the Cervista HPV16/18 test, the test results, along with the physician’s assessment of cytology history, other risk factors, and professional guidelines, may be used to guide patient management. The Cervista HPV HR clinical trial was one of the largest and most demographically diverse conducted in the U.S. to date, involving 89 sites and enrolling approximately 4,000 women nationwide. The trial met or exceeded all target endpoints: most importantly, the Cervista HPV HR test achieved 100 percent sensitivity for the detection of CIN3, an immediate precursor to cervical cancer. The company believes Cervista HPV HR provides a number of benefits over current products. Cervista HPV HR includes an internal control intended to verify adequate cellularity for testing, thus reducing the potential for false negative results. In addition, because it requires a smaller specimen volume, this technology may minimize inconclusive, or indeterminate results, which may lead to fewer patients being called back for repeat testing. More importantly, Cervista HPV HR is designed to minimize false positive results due to a low-risk HPV strain being mistakenly recognized as a high-risk HPV strain, thereby potentially reducing unnecessary clinical management and patient anxiety. The additional approval of Cervista HPV16/18 marks the first FDA approved HPV genotyping test available in the United States. The HPV strains identified by this test represent the two most oncogenic and persistent types of HPV, together believed to cause approximately 70 percent of cervical cancer. Previous studies have shown HPV 16 and 18 are respectively 5.5 times and 4.5 times more likely to cause cancer than all other high-risk HPV types combined.For more information: www.hologic.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiation Oncology | February 01, 2018 ​ITN Celebrates World Cancer Day 2018 World Cancer Day takes place annually on Feb. read more Technology | Focused Ultrasound Therapy | December 21, 2018 FDA Approves Exablate Neuro for Tremor-Dominant Parkinson’s Treatment Insightec announced that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved an expansion of the indication of… read more Feature | Cardio-oncology | May 13, 2016 | Dave Fornell Assessing Cardiotoxicity Due to Cancer Therapy Cardio-oncology is an emerging field that combines the expertise of both cardiology and oncology to assess and treat read more Javier Torres-Roca Explains Genomics in RadiotherapyVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 6:35Loaded: 2.47%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -6:35 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

November Pending Home Sales Index Reaches 31Month High

first_img Agents & Brokers Attorneys & Title Companies Census Bureau For-Sale Homes Home Prices Home Sales Investors Lenders & Servicers National Association of Realtors Processing Service Providers 2012-12-28 Mark Lieberman in Data, Government, Origination, Servicing Share December 28, 2012 412 Views center_img The Pending Home Sales Index (PHSI) increased for the third straight month in November, improving 1.7 percent to 106.4, the “”National Association of Realtors (NAR)””:http://www.realtor.org/news-releases/2012/10/november-pending-home-sales-rise-again reported Friday. Economists had expected a slightly fast, 1.8 percent increase to 106.7. [IMAGE]The index, the NAR said, is at its highest level since April 2010.The index for October was revised down to 104.6 from the originally reported 104.8, making the November growth even larger.””The upward momentum [in the PHSI] means existing-home sales should rise 8 to 9 percent in 2013 to approximately 5.1 million, following a 10 percent gain expected for all of 2012,”” the NAR said. “”The median existing-home price is projected to rise just over 4 percent in 2013, after rising more than 7 percent in 2012.”” For November, NAR reported sales of existing single homes rose to 5.04 million, the highest level in three years.On Thursday, the Census Bureau and HUD reported jointly new home sales ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô the equivalent of the PHSI ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô had increased 4.4 percent in November, also to its highest level since April 2010 Sales for both new and existing homes in 2010 were stimulated by the federal homebuyer tax credit program which required a closing by June of that year. The PHSI and new home sales reports measure contracts for the purchase of a home. The PHSI and new home sales report usually move in the same direction ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô each has increased in all but three months this year ├â┬ó├óÔÇÜ┬¼├óÔé¼┼ô but the magnitude and timing of the changes can vary. That new home sales grew in November at a faster pace than the PHSI suggests the available homes for sale include a large number of distressed properties, discouraging buyers. The PHSI does not distinguish distressed or short sale from other home sale transactions in the report.[COLUMN_BREAK]Indeed, distressed homes – foreclosures and short sales sold at deep discounts – accounted for 22 percent of November sales (12 percent were foreclosures and 10 percent were short sales), down from 24 percent in October and 29 percent in November 2011. Those discount categories have represented almost 30 percent of existing home sales this year.With the November increase, the PHSI is up 9.8 percent year-over-year, the 19th straight month of year- year increases, but the weakest year-over-year improvement since June.PHSI data are generally reflected in the report on existing home sales one or two months out, that is the November PHSI points to stronger growth in completed homes sale transactions reported for December or January. The 5.9 percent increase in existing home sales in November followed a 5.0 percent increase in the PHSI in October.The PHSI in the Northeast rose 5.2 percent to 83.3 in November and is 15.2 percent above a year ago. In the Midwest the index edged up 0.1 percent to 103.8 in November and is 15.2 percent above November 2011. Pending home sales in the South were unchanged at an index of 117.2 in November and are 13.9 percent higher than a year ago. In the West the index rose 4.2 percent in November to 110.1, but is 3.2 percent below November 2011 with inventory constraints limiting sales. November marked the first time since May the index improved in all four census regions.The index is based on a large national sample, representing about 20 percent of transactions for existing-home sales. An index of 100 is equal to the average level of contract activity during 2001, which was the first year to be examined as well as the first of five consecutive record years for existing-home sales; it coincides with a level that is historically healthy._Hear Mark Lieberman every Friday on P.O.T.U.S. radio, Sirius-XM 124, at 6:40 am and again at 9:40 am eastern time._ November Pending Home Sales Index Reaches 31-Month Highlast_img read more
