Algeria summons Moroccan Ambassador over expulsion of Syrian refugees

first_imgRabat – Algerian Foreign Ministry summoned on Wednesday Abdullah Belkeziz, the Moroccan ambassador in Algiers, to inform him of its rejection of what it called “the allegations of the expulsion of Syrian refugees to the Moroccan territory.”In a statement published by the official news agency , the spokesperson of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Ammar Bllani  said “we summoned the Ambassador of the Kingdom of Morocco on Wednesday to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where he was received by the Secretary General of the Ministry, Noureddine Awam, who expressed the Algerian government’s full rejection of the unfounded allegations mentioned by the Moroccan party on the alleged expulsion by the Algerian authorities of Syrian nationals to the Moroccan territory.”This move comes less than 24 hours after Morocco summoned the Algerian Ambassador to Rabat to express to him Morocco’s “strong disapproval,” following the alleged expulsion by the Algerian authorities to Moroccan territory of more than 70 Syrian nationals. “While calling on Algeria to fully assume its responsibilities, Morocco deeply regrets this inhuman act, especially as it affects women and children in a situation of extreme vulnerability,” read a statement of the Moroccan Ministry of Foreign Affairs.A Video footage aired by the Moroccan channel Al Oula shows official Algerian stamps on the passports of the Syrian refugees, which proves that they have legally entered the Algerian territory before they were expelled to Morocco.©Morocco World News.

Disasters of 2005 not completely natural UN health agency says

The UN World Health Organization (WHO) said that routine climate change, global warming influenced by human behavior, socioeconomic factors causing poorer people to live in risky areas, and inadequate disaster preparedness and education on the part of governments as well as the general population were part of that mix. “I don’t like to use the term ‘natural disasters,’” said Ciro Ugarte, Regional Advisor for Emergency Preparedness and Disaster Relief with the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) in Washington DC, explaining that these events would not have such a devastating effect on people’s lives without other factors at play. The year 2005 did see the aftermath of the 26 December 2004 earthquake and tsunami waves in Asia, as well as hurricanes in central and north America, notably Katrina, which triggered flooding in the United States city of New Orleans, and the 8 October earthquake in Pakistan and India. The year also saw famine after crops were destroyed by locusts in Niger and a volcano in El Salvador that was followed by Hurricane Stan. From January to October 2005, over 97,000 people were killed in disasters globally, with some 88,000 of those deaths resulting from so-called natural disasters, according to the Center for Research on the Epidemiology of Disasters (CRED), a WHO institution that operates a global disaster database in Belgium. Such deaths have been increasing since 1975.However, natural phenomena do not always generate human disasters. Dr. Ugarte of PAHO noted that in 2005, several earthquakes that struck in South America were of a higher magnitude than the one that devastated northern Pakistan and parts of India in October, but these hit sparsely populated areas and therefore caused less damage. The same goes for several tsunamis in 2005 which were not deemed “disasters” because they didn’t endanger anyone, Dr. Ugarte said. Natural phenomena are likely to affect more people because the global population has increased to about 6.5 billion people and is projected to reach 9.1 billion people in 2050, according to UN figures. One of the earliest recorded disasters, the eruption of Vesuvius in 79 AD, buried the ancient Roman city of Pompeii killing about 10 000 people. Today, 2 million people live within its possible range. Another important factor is environmental degradation, according to Marko Kokic, spokesperson for WHO’s Health Action in Crisis Department, who said natural events in Caribbean and Indian Ocean lands were amplified because of deforestation and stripping of vegetation from coastlines.Disasters are also a consequence of development and industrialization, he said. In Europe, experts believe that countries such as France and Germany are more adversely affected by floods today because major rivers, such as the Rhine, have been straightened to ease commercial traffic. Global warming as well as routine, cyclical climate changes are causing a higher number of strong hurricanes in the Caribbean, meteorologists say. Add to that the increasing number of people living in substandard housing and on coastlines, as well as the destruction in a crisis of hospitals and other essential infrastructure and you have the potential for more devastating disasters than a few decades ago, WHO concludes. read more

A 160yearold legacy takes new shape

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The legacy of ancient Greece will influence the most significant teaching and learning infrastructure project undertaken by the Faculty of Arts at Melbourne University for many years, as it recently accepted a gift of $1 million towards the endowment of a new Chair in Classics. Presented to the faculty by Mr Allan Myers AO QC as part of a $10 million donation to the university as a whole, this gift will enable the faculty to build an exciting new teaching and research program in ancient languages, literature, philosophy and culture. Professor Mark Considine, Dean of the Faculty of Arts, told Neos Kosmos that with this gift, and the support of other generous alumni and friends towards the university’s Classics Trust Fund, the university is building a legacy that will ensure future students are introduced to the significance of the ancient world, especially the legacy of ancient Greece. As the new home of the Bachelor of Arts, the building will mirror some of the traditional features of a university environment – including a redeveloped atrium and colonnades. With over 2,400 objects in the university’s Classics and Archaeology Collection, spaces have been designed to focus on teaching that uses casts and original objects to create dynamic new classrooms and facilities.Mr Considine expressed his hopes that the two – the new teaching facilities and a leading scholar on the chair level – will come together about the same time. With demolition works planned for this summer, it is expected that the first classes in the new building will commence in the second semester of 2016.Underlining his conviction that “if you believe in something, then you must support it”, distinguished lawyer and philanthropist Mr Allan Myers told Neos Kosmos he had made the gift as “we must do more than just talk, we must invest in the future”. Mr Myers is the chair of Melbourne Humanities Foundation and the Believe Campaign, the University of Melbourne’s philanthropic campaign in support of teaching positions, research and scholarships, with its main priority being securing funds for a Chair in Classics. Mr Myers is confident that the interest of students for Ancient Greek, that has been taught continuously at the University of Melbourne since its foundation in 1854 and is a core element of the Faculty of Arts’ Classics Program, still exists today. Teaching the great legacy of ancient Greece to new generations of students at Melbourne is one way in which knowledge of Greek identity can be maintained and transformed. With the announcement of the donation for the new Chair in Classics, Mr Myers called for the Greek community to join in support of classics by donating money or advocating to others to support it.In their efforts to celebrate the links to the Greek Australian community in Melbourne, University of Melbourne and Ms Christina Simantirakis, Consul General of Greece in Melbourne, will host a panel discussion to celebrate 160 years of Ancient Greek at the university. The discussion, entitled ‘Ancient Greece and the Modern University: Foundations of our Humanity’ will see esteemed members of the university’s Classics program gather at the event this Tuesday.“The most important part of the event is to try and build stronger connections with the community – we’ve always enjoyed informal relationships with the community but we haven’t had any kind of structure to pursue that relationship in a more organised fashion. This is the first opportunity to showcase parts of the program but also to invite community members and community leaders to give us feedback on their view of what we are doing and their level of interest,” Mr Considine told Neos Kosmos.last_img read more

Insurer for BG schools apologizes

first_imgThe insurance company for Battle Ground Public Schools — which lost a lawsuit this week just because it never responded — issued a public apology Thursday, calling the situation an “oversight.”The school district, through its insurance company, Canfield Solutions of Ephrata, was ordered Tuesday to pay $129,185 in damages to the family of a Yacolt boy. Trae Letts, then 13, was struck in 2009 by a falling tree while playing at Yacolt Primary School. He suffered a skull fracture.The lawsuit meant the school district was on the hook for a $1,000 deductible. But “as a result of this event, Canfield … will be fully responsible for any financial impact,” a letter from the insurer stated.The Letts’ attorney, William Baumgartner, had contended the school district was negligent in allowing old, rotting trees to be on school property, in the wake of several community complaints.But that’s not why the district lost the case. Clark County Judge Diane Woolard made a default judgment, or a money award based on the insurance company’s lack of response to the family’s lawsuit.last_img read more

Far Out RadiationBlocking Underwear Also Protect Mens Fertility

first_imgMay 12, 2014 This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. 3 min read Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Nowcenter_img Bad news, guys. All those shiny, electronic gadgets you hold near and dear — often in your lap while sitting — are doing serious damage to something important you’ll need in order to procreate: your sperm.Without getting too health education-y, research shows that the dangerous Radio Frequency radiation and Wi-Fi oozing from laptops and other gadgets “positioned near the male reproductive organs” can turn some 25 percent of sperm into sluggish, stationary microscopic loafs that can’t and won’t do their only job — swim.Equally depressing is that lap-situated laptops (they don’t call them laptops for nothing) can even warp your sperm’s DNA. If that’s not bad enough, the risks to your overall sperm quality that smartphones stashed in pants pockets can wreak are just as awful.While this news is pretty stark, men will probably continue using their electronics as usual. Thankfully, one inventor thinks he has a solution: Wireless Armour boxer briefs.These electromagnetic radiation-deflecting cotton undergarments are lined with silver meshing (which we hope isn’t scratchy) that essentially creates a Faraday cage that is said to shield your nether regions from at least 99.99 percent of “the entire range of radiation emitted by wireless devices, from voice and texts, through to 4G and Wi-Fi.” Bonus: These snug, durable skivvies are antimicrobial to keep you, er, smelling “fresher for longer.”British physics teacher Joseph Perkins, 26, invented Wireless Armour underwear after he discovered that his laptop, tablet and phone were exposing his “essentials” to significant amounts of radiation, as he sedately explains in a video to go along with his Indiegogo campaign to mass produce the protective knickers. At press time, the crowdfunding effort had raised about $15,000 toward its $50,500 goal. There are still 20 days left to chip in, if you’re so moved to do so.Also supposedly made from breathable jersey fabric, Wireless Armour come in four different basic styles, three sizes and in blue or black. But it’s not really about how they look. It’s about what they do — protect your most valuable assets.These high-tech undergarments don’t come six to a package. Each pair costs about $60. But if preserving your fertility is a priority for you, they might be worth it.What crazy apps and gadgets have you come across lately? Let us know by emailing us at FarOutTech@entrepreneur.com or by telling us in the comments below.

See the Sun Do a Somersault Courtesy of NASAs Observatory

first_img Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. NASA’s Solar Dynamics Observatory took a photo of the sun every 12 seconds on July 6th, and the results aren’t quite what you’d expect. A time-lapse video of the images makes it look like the sun is doing a somersault, because the SDO was spinning 360-degrees on one axis when it captured them. The observatory performs the seven-hour maneuver once a year to take an accurate measurement of the star’s edge. See, the solar surface is pretty chaotic, and the spacecraft has tough time finding its outermost layer while it’s stationary. SDO’s images were taken in extreme ultraviolet wavelength, but NASA colorized the sun in the video below, so we can see it tumbling in space.

Inc. recently expanded its breast imaging solutions with the launch of its Tomosynthesis Biopsy option for the Aspire Cristalle mammography system. This new option uses tomosynthesis guidance to calculate 3-D coordinates of a suspicious lesion in the breast, in addition to the traditional stereotactic method. This allows radiologists to accurately complete biopsy of suspicious areas to conduct a pathological examination and inform the diagnosis and care plan. Clinicians will now be able to enhance diagnostic care for patients by using Tomosynthesis Biopsy to target a lesion previously undetectable on images from full field digital mammography (FFDM) alone.  Clinicians can realize the following benefits when using the Tomosynthesis Biopsy in addition to Stereotactic Biopsy on the Aspire Cristalle with DBT mammography system:Clinical Confidence: Clinicians will have more options to deliver enhanced diagnosis to patients. Now with Tomo Biopsy, targeting is improved by identifying the area of concern directly on the corresponding tomosynthesis slice;Ease-of-Use: High-resolution dual display system, targeting guide function on stereo images, various image processing and other useful functions designed to make targeting accurate and easy; andIncreased Efficiency: Tomo Biopsy leads to a more efficient workflow with the potential to decrease exam times, as clinicians can use a single click to calculate 3-D coordinates compared to targeting the same lesion on two images with Stereotactic Biopsy. By using tomosynthesis images for targeting instead of traditional 2-D clinicians are also afforded the increased diagnostic confidence that comes hand-in-hand with tomosynthesis use.The Fujifilm Aspire Cristalle with DBT combines state-of-the-art, Hexagonal Close Pattern (HCP) capture technology and intelligent image processing, optimizing dose and contrast based on individual breast composition. The result is low dose and fast acquisition of high-quality images for all breast types. In addition, patients can experience a noticeable improvement in comfort during procedures with Fujifilm’s patented, flexible comfort paddle design, which provides gentle and even compression that is designed to adapt to patient curves.Fujifilm representatives are presenting Tomosynthesis Biopsy at Fujifilm’s booth at the Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) annual meeting, July 21-24 in Denver.For more information: www.fujifilmusa.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 VIDEO: Demonstration of the Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Radiographic Fluoroscopy System Shimadzu displayed the FluoroSpeed X1 conventional radiographic fluoroscopy (RF) system at the Association for Medica read more Image courtesy of Imago Systems News | Artificial Intelligence | August 05, 2019 Montefiore Nyack Hospital Uses Aidoc AI to Spot Urgent Conditions Faster Montefiore Nyack Hospital, an acute care hospital in Rockland County, N.Y., announced it is utilizing artificial… read more Technology | Breast Biopsy Systems | July 24, 2019 Fujifilm Releases Tomosynthesis Biopsy Option for Aspire Cristalle Mammography System Clinicians can use tomosynthesis guidance to calculate 3-D coordinates of suspicious breast lesion Technology | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 Shimadzu Medical Systems Receives FDA 510(k) for FluoroSpeed X1 RF System Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu Corp., announced they have received U.S. Food and Drug… read more News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.
