GAME PREVIEW Philippe Coutinho LiverpoolIt is now one win in six games for Liverpool.You can caveat that record in a few ways: Manchester City and Sevilla are tough opponents, a draw away at Spartak Moscow is not a disaster and they were not at full-strength in their Carabao Cup match against Leicester City.But the fact is that Liverpool are conceding goals too readily, falling behind too often and having to chase games – and open themselves up further – as a result.On Sunday, when they visit Newcastle United, a win will be paramount ahead of next weekend’s match against Manchester United at Anfield.We have seen before that Jose Mourinho knows exactly how to counter an attack-minded Liverpool side and the only way to thwart the Portuguese will be through a higher level of conviction and execution than has been present on Merseyside in recent weeks.They could certainly do with the shot in the arm a performance more like the one they delivered against Arsenal earlier this season would provide at St James’ Park on Sunday.

Alcacer fires Barca to vital win

first_imgBarcelona 2 Sevilla 1: Alcacer makes the most of rare start Chris Myson Last updated 2 years ago 05:36 11/5/17 Alcacer - Cropped Getty Images Barcelona restored their four-point lead over Valencia at the top of LaLiga by beating Sevilla, courtesy of Paco Alcacer. Paco Alcacer made the most of a rare start as his double gave LaLiga leaders Barcelona a 2-1 home victory over Sevilla.Alcacer, named in a league starting XI by Ernesto Valverde for the first time since the opening match of the season, scored once in each half as Barca restored their four-point lead at the top of the table after wins for title rivals Valencia and Atletico Madrid earlier on Saturday.Guido Pizarro’s headed equaliser in between Alcacer’s two strikes briefly threatened a surprise result, but a draw would have flattered fifth-placed Sevilla, who have now lost four consecutive away games.

A Liverpool legend in the making: Behind Virgil van Dijk’s remarkable rise to world’s best player Barca have won 10 and drawn one of their first 11 league games and now sit 11 points clear of rivals Real Madrid, who are at home to Las Palmas on Sunday, in fourth.Sevilla have now failed to win in 15 attempts at Camp Nou, losing 13 of those meetings and conceding 40 goals in the process.@paco93alcacer #BarçaSevilla (2-1) pic.twitter.com/aaQcnH65OY— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) November 4, 2017Barcelona came close to an opener on multiple occasions in a frantic opening 10 minutes.Lionel Messi, on his 600th Barca appearance, created an early effort for himself which was saved by David Soria, before Sergio Busquets’ close-range effort was hacked away off the line by Sevilla’s defence after the Argentina international crossed into his path.Luis Suarez then failed to lob Soria after a fine pass from Andres Iniesta and Ivan Rakitic sent a blistering left-footed 20-yard drive inches wide.Luis Muriel briefly interrupted the flow of Barca attacks, firing narrowly off target at the other end after dispossessing Samuel Umtiti, but Iniesta’s left-footed thunderbolt – which was similar to Rakitic’s – soon had Soria worried again.The lively Alcacer headed just over from Rakitic’s cross, but the striker made no mistake with his next chance on 23 minutes.Taking advantage of a mistake from Sevilla captain Sergio Escudero, whose poor touch failed to deal with Suarez’s throughball, Alcacer raced in on goal to slide a first-time finish past the onrushing Soria from 15 yards.Despite the rain today’s crowd is 70,723 espectadors at Camp Nou. Thanks to you all!! #ForçaBarça pic.twitter.com/3ndP7G4WIb— FC Barcelona (@FCBarcelona) November 4, 2017Sevilla improved after the break and saw Muriel’s shot from 18 yards only just clear Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s crossbar, and the visitors did find an equaliser shortly before the hour mark.Pizarro latched on to Ever Banega’s corner and his downward header from eight yards bounced past Ter Stegen and into the top corner.That seemed to wake Barca from their sluggish start to the second half and Gerard Pique almost sent the Camp Nou crowd wild when he fired an effort against the bar from 25 yards. Barca moved back in front just six minutes after the equaliser, Alcacer timing his run to prod Rakitic’s deflected cross past Soria from six yards.Alcacer was immediately substituted for Gerard Deulofeu after his second goal, but Barca were back on the attack soon after and Suarez wanted handball against Clement Lenglet when his shot struck the Sevilla defender’s arm from close range, the striker having been found by Messi.Barca had another penalty claim turned down when Rakitic raced into the area and was felled under pressure from Escudero late on, but it mattered little with Sevilla not threatening a second leveller as Valverde’s side reached the international break in a dominant domestic position.Key Opta stats:- Paco Alcacer has scored nine goals in his last nine starts for Barcelona in all competitions.- Barcelona have equalled their best start after the first 11 games of a LaLiga season (31 points, level with 12-13 and 13-14). – Lionel Messi has failed to score in a LaLiga game v Sevilla for the first time since September 2012. Since then, he has scored in each of his eight games against them (12 goals). – Guido Pizarro has scored his first goal for Sevilla in all competitions (14 apps). read morelast_img read more

Gov’t Implementing Community-Level Programme to Curtail Child Labour

first_imgStory Highlights According to Director of Child Labour in the Ministry, Sacha Deer Gordon, the initiative will entail creating vulnerability maps that highlight areas where child labour is suspected to be taking place, for monitoring and eventual action. She was speaking at a recent labour forum at The Knutsford Court Hotel in St. Andrew. The Ministry of Labour and Social Security is intensifying efforts to curtail child labour in Jamaica through a ‘Risk Identification Model’ programme being implemented to identify communities where this illicit activity is occurring, in order to facilitate interventions.According to Director of Child Labour in the Ministry, Sacha Deer Gordon, the initiative will entail creating vulnerability maps that highlight areas where child labour is suspected to be taking place, for monitoring and eventual action.She was speaking at a recent labour forum at The Knutsford Court Hotel in St. Andrew.Ms. Gordon said the system will allow the authorities to “identify the highest probability where child labour may occur, and in what sector”.She cited a recent Statistical Institute of Jamaica (STATIN) study that revealed an estimated 38,000 children are involved in child labour locally.The Director said once the victims are identified, “we put plans in place to interrupt that trajectory”, adding that steps are taken to monitor their recovery, because “we don’t want them to re-enter child labour”.Ms. Gordon pointed out that business owners employing children under age 13 to work in their establishments are in breach of the Child Care and Protection Act, which stipulates that youngsters up to the age of 14 years can only be engaged in “light work” for no more than 14 hours per week.The Act further stipulates that children, aged 15, can only engage in full employment if they have completed secondary education.“But they cannot be engaged in hazardous work [below] age 16… and it has to be done under supervision and with proper instructions,” she said.Ms. Gordon said the Government continues to discourage child labour, emphasising that “it is something that we are saying must stop”.Efforts to this end include the Ministry’s establishment of a National Steering Committee, which meets monthly and utilises various mechanisms designed to promote child rights.Child labour is a criminal offence, with penalties ranging from $250,000 or three months’ imprisonment to a maximum of $1 million. The Ministry of Labour and Social Security is intensifying efforts to curtail child labour in Jamaica through a ‘Risk Identification Model’ programme being implemented to identify communities where this illicit activity is occurring, in order to facilitate interventions. last_img read more

NRF Imports Slow Down at US Container Ports

first_imgzoom The rate of import growth at US major retail container ports has begun to slow, but volume should nonetheless hit an all-time high by the end of the summer, the National Retail Federation and Hackett Associates informed.“Year-over-year comparisons are slowing down but that’s largely because we had some unusual numbers early this year and strong volume in the second half of last year,” Jonathan Gold, NRF Vice President for Supply Chain and Customs Policy, said.“Despite that, we’re expecting some of the largest import volumes we’ve ever seen, and that’s because retailers are responding to strong consumer demand,” Gold added.US ports covered by NRF’s Global Port Tracker handled 1.61 million TEUs in April, representing an increase of 4.8 percent from March and 11.3 percent from April 2016.May was estimated at 1.69 million TEU, up 3.9 percent from the same time last year. June is forecast at 1.64 million TEU, up 4.1 percent from last year; July at 1.68 million TEU, up 3.5 percent; August at 1.74 million TEU, up 1.6 percent; September at 1.64 million TEU, up 2.8 percent, and October at 1.69 million TEU, up 1.3 percent.“The August figure would be the highest monthly volume recorded since NRF began tracking imports in 2000, topping the 1.73 million TEU seen in March 2015,” NRF said, added that the May and October numbers would be among the five highest ever recorded. The first half of 2017 is expected to total 9.6 million TEU, up 6.4 percent from the first half of 2016.The falling rate of growth in imports has been reflected in lower industrial output growth at factories in China, which increased 6.5 percent in April compared with 7.6 percent in March and is expected to drop further when May numbers are released, Ben Hackett, Hackett Associates founder, said“We can assume that part of the reason for the lower-than-expected increase was due to continuing slow growth in the Western Hemisphere,” Hackett said. “Retail sales continue to hold up but nothing coming out of Washington suggests an impetus to growth.”last_img read more

Elderly Helmut Oberlander again appeals stripping of citizenship

first_imgTORONTO — A 94-year-old man found to have lied about his membership in a Second World War Nazi death squad has launched yet another appeal of the government’s decision to strip him of his Canadian citizenship.In his latest development in a now-decades-old case, Helmut Oberlander argues among other things that a Federal Court judge who affirmed the government’s action last fall should have recused himself from the case.Oberlander, of Waterloo, Ont., also tells the Federal Court of Appeal that the ministers of citizenship and justice should not have taken part in the government’s decision-making. Both have been involved in the proceedings against him and could appear biased, he says. However, he says he has been unable to find out if they were involved.The retired businessman, who potentially faces deportation as Jewish groups have demanded if the citizenship revocation sticks, wants the case returned to Federal Court for a hearing by another judge.The office of Citizenship Minister Ahmed Hussen did not respond to a request for comment. Canada Border Services Agency, which would be tasked with any enforcement action, had no immediate comment.In September, Federal Court Judge Michael Phelan sided with the government, which had revoked Oberlander’s citizenship in June 2017 for the fourth time since the mid-1990s. The government maintained he was complicit in war crimes by belonging to Einsatzkommando 10a, known as Ek-10a. The notorious squad was responsible for killing close to 100,000 people, most Jewish.The Ukraine-born Oberlander, who came to Canada in 1954 and became a citizen in 1960, has long argued he was conscripted into the unit as a 17-year-old and risked execution had he tried to leave. He has insisted he acted as an interpreter and took no part in its savagery.While Phelan said no evidence existed that Oberlander was involved in any atrocities, he did find it reasonable to strip him of his Canadian citizenship for misrepresenting his war-time activities when he immigrated.In reaching his conclusion, Phelan said a 2000 ruling from Federal Court Judge Andrew MacKay found Oberlander to have been aware of the unit’s brutality and complicit in its war crimes by acting as an interpreter.However, Oberlander’s lawyers Ronald Poulton and Barbara Jackman argue in their appeal notice that Phelan misinterpreted MacKay’s decision and was in fact leaning on his own previous ruling from 2008 — one that was upended on appeal.“Justice Phelan sat in judgment on his own previous finding — the very finding which the GIC relied on to support its conclusion on complicity,” the lawyers argue.Phelan also refused to “certify a question of serious importance,” sharply curtailing Oberlander’s right to appeal. Oberlander’s lawyers argue the provision is unconstitutional because it does not comply with the principles of fundamental justice.“In Mr. Oberlander’s case, only his ability to seek appellate review and win at that level has prevented six separate miscarriages of justice that would have resulted in the revocation of his citizenship,” Poulton and Jackman say. “The deleterious effect of the measure in his case is a serious prospect of being made to suffer without recourse.”Poulton and Jackman have refused repeated requests to discuss the case and Oberlander’s daughter, who has defended her father, has not returned previous calls for comment.Colin Perkel, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

UN labour agency advocates policy changes to address rise in nonstandard forms

A third of the working population in Eastern Europe, Turkey and Central Asia are in informal or vulnerable jobs, and social safety nets are increasingly coming under threat. Photo: UNDP “Short-term cost and flexibility gains from using NSFE may be outweighed by longer-term productivity losses. There is evidence that firms that use NSFE more tend to underinvest in training, both for temporary and permanent employees, as well as in productivity-enhancing technologies and innovation,” said Philip Marcadent, Chief of the ILO unit responsible for the report.“Widespread use of NSFE may reinforce labour market segmentation and lead to greater volatility in employment, with consequences for economic stability. Research shows that temporary and on-call workers have more difficulty getting access to credit and housing, leading to delays in starting a family,” he added.The report documents a number of different trends. In industrialized countries, part-time work falls into ‘very short hours,’ ‘on-call’ work, or ‘zero-hours’ contracts that have no minimum hour guarantee. These conditions are parallel with “casual work” in developing countries.In the United States, 10 per cent of the workforce has irregular and on-call works schedules; those earning the least are most affected. In Bangladesh and India, almost two-thirds of wage employment is casual. One-third is casual in Mali and Zimbabwe. In Australia, where casual employment is a specific category, one in four employees is casual. ILO advocates four policy recommendations to improve the quality of non-standard jobs: Plug regulatory gaps, which includes policies to ensure equal treatment among workers, minimum guaranteed hours and limits to variations in work schedules, legislation and enforcement to address employment misclassification, addressing abuse, and assigning obligations and responsibilities in those arrangements involving multiple parties; Strengthen collective bargaining by building the capacity of unions to represent workers in NSFE, ensuring all workers have access to freedom of association and collective bargaining rights, and extending collective agreements to cover all workers in a sector or occupational category; Strengthen social protection by eliminating or lowering thresholds on minimum hours, earnings, or duration of employment and making systems more flexible in terms of benefits. Such changes should be complemented by universal policies that guarantee a basic level of social protection; and Institute employment and social policies that support job creation and workers’ needs for training and family responsibilities such as childcare and elder care. Non-standard forms of employment (NSFE) are not new, but are becoming more common throughout the world and include temporary work, part-time work, temporary agency work and subcontracting, self-employment, and disguised employment relationships.“We need to make sure that all jobs provide workers with adequate and stable earnings, protection from occupational hazards, social protection, and the right to organize and bargain collectively and that employees know the identity of their employer,” said Deborah Greenfield, ILO Deputy Director for Policy, in a press release. On the one hand, NSFE can provide access to the labour market and increased flexibility for workers and employers. But on the other, warns the ILO report, NSFE is associated with greater insecurities for workers. In countries where the practice is widespread, workers risk getting caught in a cycle of non-standard jobs and unemployment. It documents a 30 per cent wage gap between those working temporary jobs and standard workers who perform similar work.The report, Non-standard employment around the world: Understanding challenges, shaping prospects confirms that in some instances, especially those where contractual arrangements have blurred the employment relationship, workers are unable to exercise their fundamental rights at work or gain access to social security benefits and proper training. Injury rates are also higher among those in NSFE.These trends have unintended consequences for businesses. read more

Gaz de schiste linterdiction de son exploitation rejetée par lAssemblée nationale

first_imgGaz de schiste : l’interdiction de son exploitation rejetée par l’Assemblée nationaleMardi, l’Assemblée nationale a rejeté la proposition de loi visant à interdire l’exploitation du gaz de schiste, et non plus seulement la méthode de fracturation hydraulique. Ce texte était soutenu par le parti socialiste, les Verts, le PCF et le Parti de Gauche.Par 269 voix contre 191, la proposition de loi visant à interdire l’exploration et l’exploitation des gaz et huiles de schiste en France a été rejetée par l’Assemblée nationale, rapporte l’AFP. Ce texte, soutenu par les Verts, les socialistes mais aussi le PCF et le parti de gauche, avait été déposé suite à l’adoption en juillet dernier de la loi interdisant l’exploration par la fracturation hydraulique. Une mesure insuffisante pour l’opposition, qui en plus d’une interdiction totale, réclamait l’abrogation des permis exclusifs de recherche de mines d’hydrocarbures liquides ou gazeux non conventionnels, ainsi qu’une plus grande transparence dans le code minier. “L’exploration et l’exploitation des huiles et gaz de schiste constituent à la fois une erreur énergétique, environnementale et économique qu’il convient d’interdire”, a insisté quelques minutes avant le vote le président des Verts à l’Assemblée Yves Cochet, qui avait déposé la proposition le 6 octobre dernier avec son homologue du PS Jean-Marc Ayrault.Alors que le gouvernement vient d’abroger trois permis d’exploration de gaz de schiste dans le sud de la France, accordés en mars 2010 par le ministère de l’Environnement (voir notre article), Nathalie Koscisko-Morizet s’est félicitée du vote de l’Assemblée, déclarant selon France Soir “regretterque l’opposition veuille encore aborder ce sujet alors que nous l’avons traité et bien traité”.Le 13 octobre 2011 à 13:42 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Vehicle fire causes mayhem on state Highway 14

first_imgAn estimated 50 vehicles traveled the wrong way on an onramp to state Highway 14 on Wednesday afternoon to bypass traffic from an earlier car fire, according to Washington State Patrol Trooper Will Finn. Smoke from the fully engulfed vehicle fire billowed across the highway near Milepost 7 in east Vancouver. Troopers blocked the roadway at 1 p.m. so firefighters could extinguish the fire, and then restricted the westbound highway to one lane. As traffic started to stack up, about 50 vehicles made a U-turn and went the wrong way on the Southwest 164th Avenue onramp. Going the wrong direction on a highway, Finn said, “is one of the most dangerous things someone could do on a freeway.”Troopers stopped seven vehicles and cited the drivers for traveling the wrong way on a highway, which carries a $411 fine, Finn said. The drivers were then told to turn around and drive the correct way on the highway.“If you’re caught in traffic, please be patient with us,” Finn said. The vehicle fire was cleared from the roadway shortly before 2 p.m.last_img read more

SpiceJet Posts ₹275 Crore in Losses in Q3 Recapitalisation will Help Turn

first_imgSpiceJet announced its third-quarter results on Thursday evening, with the airline posting a loss of ₹275 crore — an increase of 59% — on the back of poor passenger numbers and a one-time cost of ₹295 crore.The recently recapitalised airline saw a 31% decline in capacity, with revenue falling to ₹1,300 crore against ₹1,769 crore recorded a year ago for the same quarter. ReutersSpiceJet said in a statement that its net loss has widened to ₹173 crore for the third quarter. The quarter also witnessed the airline stand at the brink of total collapse, after the Maran brothers stopped infusing funds to keep the airline going, even as it accumulated significant losses, and saw its credit obligations skyrocket.The Marans finally transferred ownership and management to Ajay Singh, the original promoter of the airline, who brought in fresh funds to keep the airline going.With the recapitalisation move, SpiceJet is also re-negotiating contracts and settling dues with creditors, which together is expected to bring down costs, Chief Financial Officer Kiran Koteshwar said.The airline scrip was trading at 19.65, down by 0.40 or 2%, at the time of reporting.last_img read more

September launch for Intel Cedar Trail scrapped

first_img The battery life is said to exceed 10 hours. The new platform will carry Intel Wireless Music, Wireless Display, PC Synch and Fast Boot technologies.So what is the specific problem causing the delay? LG Nilsson writing for VR-Zone says what is clear to him is that it is something fairly crucial, if Microsoft has determined that the drivers are not yet suitable for Windows 7. He said his best guess is that the glitch lies in media decoding.Whatever the reasons, some best guesses and relevant insider insights will converge next month over what happened, what’s next and which dates to watch, at the Intel Developer Forum from September 13 to 15. One vendor that certainly cares about Cedar Trail is computer-maker Asus, a key brand name in netbooks. Asus has confirmed its support for Intel’s Cedar Trail platform. The company presented at Computex the Asus Eee PC 1025, its first Cedar Trail netbook. The machine features a 10.1-inch (1024 x 600) display and will be powered by a 32nm Atom CPU (N2600 or N2800). The Eee PC 1025C runs Windows 7. Those familiar with the certification process reckon that submitting the drives for recertification, given the drivers’ complexity, will take some time. © 2011 PhysOrg.com Asus Eee PC Netbook 1000HG WiMAX Coming Soon (Video) (PhysOrg.com) — Intel has changed the launch date of its Cedar Trail-M platform that is targeted for netbooks from September to November. The reason for the delay is a problem with graphics drivers and failing certification for Windows 7. Cedar Trail is the code name being used for Intel’s next generation Atom chips built using the 32nm manufacturing node. A talking point over the Cedar Trail chipset has been that it represents the first netbook platform-based Intel 32nm technology. The platform is described as a unified architecture that packs the processing cores and the graphics processing unit on the same die. The graphics core includes support for DirectX 10.1 and hardware decoding capabilities for HD content, including MPEG2, VC1, AVC, H.264 and Blu-ray 2.0. This document is subject to copyright.

These findings open the door for targeted radiotherapy to be administered with just one dose in each daily session.A typical radiotherapy beam in each daily session takes two minutes to deliver, with shaped radiation beams directed from several angles to intersect at the cancerous tumor. Because patients are not able to hold their breath for this long, most radiotherapy treatment is delivered while still breathing, and the ventilatory motion of the chest increases the risk of damage to nearby healthy tissue.Clinical practice for some breast cancer patients is due to change with the introduction of repeated breath-holds of around 20 seconds, to provide a stable target for the treatment, given over a number of doses in each session.But the Birmingham team have demonstrated that the treatment in each session could now be delivered to patients in a single breath-hold.The research “Safely prolonging single breath-holds to >5 minutes in cancer patients; feasibility and applications for radiotherapy“ published in the British Journal of Radiology, builds on previous studies of healthy volunteers who were able to reach mean breath holds of seven minutes.Dr. Mike Parkes, from the University of Birmingham, explained, “The physiology of breath holding is well understood on the whole, but has been somewhat overlooked in medical research because until now it hadn’t any obvious clinical application.”“Following on from our preliminary work on healthy subjects, we wanted to see if we could help patients with breast cancer to achieve a breath hold of over two minutes to allow a radiotherapy treatment to be delivered in a single breath-hold.”Fifteen patients who were undergoing radiotherapy were recruited to the trial and trained to extend their breath-holds safely. Patients are trained on how to maintain a relaxed posture, to practice inhaling and exhaling to maximum effect and then to assist them naturally to raise their blood oxygen levels and reduce their blood carbon dioxide levels, by preoxygenation and mechanically induced hypocapnia.The average breath hold of patients after the training was 5.3 minutes, significantly more than the required target of 2 minutes.Parkes continued, “Being able to hit the cancerous tumor accurately is essential to avoid damage to other areas, including the heart muscle. Having a stable chest that we can target in one dose could be invaluable in protecting the surrounding tissue.”“Although 5-minute breath-holds may seem astonishing to people, it is perfectly natural and safe for patients. Actually, anyone can do it. Patients are carefully monitored throughout the process and if their oxygen levels drop or their blood pressure rises above a certain level we would step in. The safety levels we use are very conservative so there is no risk attached.”Of all 15 patients undergoing radiotherapy, 13 also had chemotherapy and two were taking herceptin.The Birmingham team, working with clinical teams at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust, believe that being able to assist patients in achieving a single breath-hold could greatly improve the long-term survival and quality of life of breast cancer patients.The trial was funded by the Queen Elizabeth Hospital Birmingham Charity as part of the Charity’s ongoing multi-million pound support of patients at the hospital.For more information: www.birpublications.org/journal/bjr FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Catalyst PT image courtesy of C-RADcenter_img News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.

The approval reaches a critical milestone of integration into the American Association for the Study of Liver Diseases (AASLD) 2018 hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) clinical practice guidance.“By implementing two minor changes to CT/MRI LI-RADS, we were able to unify LI-RADS with AASLD,” said Claude B. Sirlin, M.D., chair, LI-RADS Steering Committee. “Harmonizing these two guidance systems for liver imaging will further reduce imaging interpretation variability and errors, enhance communication with referring clinicians, enable the collection of standardized data and ultimately yield better patient outcomes.”LI-RADS v2018 revises the definition of the LI-RADS major feature threshold growth and revises one LI-RADS category 5 criterion (10-19 mm + arterial phase hyperenhancement + “washout” = LR-5). The ACR intends to return to a three- to four-year update cycle, with the next major comprehensive update to LI-RADS CT (computed tomography)/MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) anticipated in 2021.View the update LI-RADS CT/MRI v2018 Core here.For more information: www.acr.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.
