OTTAWA — The New Democrats have removed Quebec MP Pierre Nantel as an NDP candidate following what the party is calling “confirmed reports” that he is in discussions to run for a different party.Nantel has been a New Democrat MP for the riding of Longueuil—Saint-Hubert since 2011 and had already been nominated as the NDP candidate in the riding for the Oct. 21 federal election.Melissa Bruno, national director of the federal NDP, issued a brief statement today saying Nantel is now out as an New Democratic candidate.She says the party will start the process of nominating a new candidate in the riding.Radio personality and former Quebec legislator Bernard Drainville, citing anonymous sources, tweeted today that Nantel is in discussions to possibly run for the Green party in the upcoming federal election.

(Papachase Chief and Council at Edmonton city hall. Photo courtesty: Theresa Wynn)Brandi Morin APTN National NewsThe chief of the Papaschase Band based in Edmonton, Alta., said he is happy with the progress the band has been making to be officially recognized.In April, the Papaschase Chief and council were officially sworn in in a public ceremony attended by officials from all three levels of government.Chief Calvin Bruneau told APTN National News in an interview last July that Edmonton sits on stolen “Indian land,” and what happened to the band in the past had been lost in the city’s consciousness, even though its descendants are alive and well today.“The government wants it forgotten, but it’s always been kept alive in families,” said Bruneau in that interview. “We are asserting our own sovereignty and saying we never surrendered the lands.”His said his ancestors lived in what is now the Rossdale Flats and River Valley area in Edmonton and were designated a reserve of approximately 60 square miles upon signing Treaty 6.The reserve stretched across the North Saskatchewan River and into what is now Edmonton’s south side. As the area began to grow settlers became uncomfortable with living so close to an Indian band and sent petitions to Ottawa to have them removed.But the swearing in ceremony held on April 23 marked the first time the band held an inauguration.“It felt very special,” said Bruneau, who has been working toward gaining recognition by the federal government since 2011.“We’re making progress for one. We’re getting recognition. That’s what drives me. There’s still unfinished business. We still want to file a claim with the feds and we might be able to reopen the former court case. The big thing is, is getting the recognition. Because under Canada’s policy you need to be a recognized band. That’s why I’m pushing hard now to get our band recognized. This has been going on for a long time, we’d like to see something to get done. I want to see this happen and to succeed,” he said.Edmonton Strathcona NDP MP Linda Duncan attended the ceremony and said she admires Bruneau’s determination and now it’s up to the Liberal government to give them “the time of day.”“They (Liberals) profess that it’s their number one priority (new relationship with Indigenous in Canada.) As you’re aware they have a huge backlog on comprehensive claims…add the Papaschase to that list. Let’s hope they give expedited attention, these aren’t new issues,” said Duncan.She went on to refer to the recent Supreme Court of Canada ruling that stated Métis and Non-Status “Indians” as referred to in the Constitution are indeed “Indians”.“The Court ruling is confirmed that the Federal government is responsible for Métis people and for urban non-status Indian people. I think we’re (Edmonton) now the highest Aboriginal population in Canada and a very young population- so we need to be addressing those needs.”In a written statement, City of Edmonton Ward 6 Councillor Scott Mckeen who attended the ceremony said that although it has no direct responsibilities for the Indian Act or Status and Title it supports the Papaschase in their efforts to find a “sense of belonging.”Edmonton supported efforts of the Papaschase in the creation of the Papaschase Cree Nation Society, the traditional burial grounds and the Fort Edmonton Cemetery in Rossdale Flats where upwards of 200 ancestors are buried.The city also announced a historical research study into the Treaty No. 6 Adhesion which includes Papaschase.“The research project’s objective is to provide information regarding the impact that adhering to Treaty No. 6 at Fort Edmonton had on the band, and Chief Papachase’s contribution to the process. This project also has the potential to explore members understanding of this history which will help tell the story of the Papaschase and the Treaty adhesion into the future,” said McKeen.Bruneau said the people coming forward with requests to register with the band have ballooned in the past year with some coming from the west in B.C. and some as far away East as Toronto and New York.He estimates the total Papaschase population could be as high as 20,000. Currently the band has approximately 1,000 registered members, he said.First term councillor Murray Mackinnon said he was disconnected from his Indigenous culture and embarked on a journey to reconnect when he discovered he was a Papaschase descendant about a year ago.“I was very displaced. It (my culture) was not on my radar scope at all. I was mocked as a kid. For being dark…” said Mackinnon, who ended up meeting Bruneau’s mother at a prayer meeting and became intrigued with the plight of the Papaschase that she shared with him.“It’s been really interesting. And finding out whether my heart was engaged or not with the First Nations people… But it really ignited a passion in me.”MacKinnon was sworn in along with five other counsellors. He said it was Bruneau and his strong vision that ultimately drew him in to help the Papaschase people to work to gain back their territory.“Calvin is so unique. It’s amazing when you hear the story of what the Papaschase are doing- It’s ‘you guys are not looking for a handout, you’re looking for a handup,’” said MacKinnon.Bruneau said feedback has been positive.“I’m hearing from our people they like what we’re doing but we have to start getting things done.”Alberta Indigenous Relations Minister Richard Feehan expressed support on behalf of the province,“I recently met with representatives from the Papaschase community to learn more about their history. I am always open to listening and learning from them about their journey towards formal recognition. I look forward to following with interest the Papaschase people’s ongoing and future conversations with the federal government,” he said in a statement.Bruneau said he wrote a letter to federal Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett in March asking for help in getting Papaschase recognized, but hasn’t heard any response.APTN tried reaching out to Bennett’s office for comment but didn’t receive a response at press time.Initially it was harder to be a Chief amongst other Treaty leaders said Bruneau,“I still have to knock on doors and I still have to meet with Chiefs. I tried to get resolution at a Treaties 1-11 meeting. They (Chiefs) weren’t willing to look at it (it was to recognize unrecognized bands).”But despite the setbacks those relationships are now improving.“We took the course to going where we’ve been going and that support has been growing,” he firstname.lastname@example.org
CAIRO – The approval of Egypt’s constitution bolsters the powerful army chief but a large number of youths who helped topple two presidents within three years shunned the vote on the new charter.Egyptian voters have approved the Tuesday-Wednesday referendum by 98.1 percent, officials announced Saturday, and the results are seen as nod to General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi to run for president.Sisi led the overthrow of Islamist president Mohamed Morsi in July following massive protests against his one year-rule, which came after a popular uprising in 2011 toppled his predecessor Hosni Mubarak. Youth movements at the forefront of protests that ended the rules of Morsi and Mubarak hardly objected when the military-installed authorities launched a deadly crackdown on Morsi’s supporters.Nor did they object when his Muslim Brotherhood movement was banned and designated a “terrorist” organisation.But they voiced their outrage when the military-backed authorities passed a law in November banning unauthorised demonstrations.And this appears to have been clearly reflected during the voting.Sisi had urged the youths to participate in the referendum, saying they formed “more than 50 percent” of Egypt’s 85-million strong population.But AFP reporters who toured polling stations said youths did not massively participate in the voting and analysts confirmed that many young people clamouring for change in Egypt shunned the polls.Political analyst Hassan Nafea said turnout was “disappointing”.“The youth refused to participate in the referendum because they consider what is happening as a counter-revolution to the January revolution (against Hosni Mubarak),” said Nafea.Electoral commission head Nabil Salib announced the official results on Saturday and said turnout “reached 38.6 percent” of 53 million registered voters, with only 1.9 percent voting “no.”That turnout shows “that the revolution of June 30 was a popular revolution,” said another government official, of the day when millions took to the streets across Egypt to demand Morsi’s ouster.But Salib also acknowledged that a certain percentage of youths had not voted as the referendum coincided with examinations otherwise “the turnout would have been higher”.The new charter replaces an Islamist-inspired one adopted in a December 2012 referendum under Morsi with about two-thirds of the vote and a 33 percent turnout.Nafea said the result showed, however, an overall backing for Sisi to run for president because “a large segment of Egyptians see the Brotherhood as a threat to the society”.Spectre of Mubarak eraSisi has said he would bid for the presidency only if there was a popular demand.The general is wildly popular among many of the millions who took to the streets against Morsi, but the Islamist’s followers revile him for what they say was a “coup” against Egypt’s first freely elected and civilian president.The Brotherhood, reeling from a crackdown by the military-installed authorities has seen thousands of Islamists arrested and more than 1,000 people killed, dismissed the referendum as a “farce”.Many youths agreed, but for different reasons.“For us it is ironical that the constitution talks of freedom of speech and yet those who said no to the constitution have been jailed,” said activist Mohamed Ghorab of the No to Military Trials of Civilians group.“For many this is a reminder of the previous Mubarak era regime,” he said.Prominent youth leaders of the 2011 uprising against Mubarak have been jailed in recent weeks.They include Ahmed Maher, Ahmed Douma and Mohamed Adel, convicted in December for organising an unlicensed protest — just days after a law was passed in November banning all but police-sanctioned demonstrations.These convictions have been denounced by rights groups and experts who says they threaten the gains achieved since the toppling of Mubarak and signal areturn of a police state.Youths have also been angered by a flurry of reports in the local media that gave unflattering accounts of their role in the 2011 uprising.Such articles, said the analyst Nafea, are seen by the youths as “an attempt to steal the June 30 revolution (against Morsi) for the benefit” of Mubarak cronies.The non-Islamist youngsters “who participated in the revolt against Mubarak did not do that for a return to autocracy,” said James Dorsey of Singapore’s S. Rajaratnam School of International Studies.“They are asking questions, and the question is whether the new regime will believe in liberal politics and there is no indication that it is going to do so,” he added.

Caught on Camera: Copperhead Snakes Mate on Bike TrailRare Two-Headed Timber Rattlesnake Spotted in New Jersey A nature photographer recently had an unexpected “visitor” crash his cicada photo shoot and eat one of the beautiful insects as a snack.Charlton McDaniel, who’s based in Arkansas, was shooting close-ups of a cicada coming out of its shell last week when he spotted something slithering in the shadows: a poisonous copperhead snake coming in to snatch a meal for the night,” the Springfield News-Leader reported. Stay on target “I had gone out for a night float on the Mulberry River — we had a full moon that night — and when I got to my campsite I saw two cicadas that were crawling on the ground. They hadn’t yet come out of their shell,” McDaniel told the Springfield News-Leader. “I wanted to photograph one coming out of its shell.”The cicada, which had stopped moving on a stump at the time, was ready to split through its outer shell and emerge as fully grown cicada. McDaniel went to set up his Nikon D610 camera and pulled out his iPhone to catch the cicada’s major life step.That’s when the copperhead snake, which McDaniel believes was very young, dashed in quick to grab the cicada. Even though McDaniel tried to move the reptile away with a stick twice, the creature appeared to be “desperately hungry” for the freshly emerged cicada. On the third try, the snake snatched up the green cicada in its mouth. The cicada, which had waited 17 years to come out of the ground, sadly was swallowed alive, however, McDaniel knew he caught a mesmerizing moment on camera.Photo Credit: Charlton McDaniel / Facebook“I got really close, less than a foot, with my iPhone once it started eating it,” McDaniel added. “I knew that while it was swallowing it was really vulnerable and couldn’t bite me.”McDaniel’s “cicada meal” photos have gone viral on Facebook, receiving over 10,000 reactions so far. McDaniel hopes the photos will educate people about snakes and how they live in the wild.“There’s an inherent fear of snakes down here. You don’t need to kill them,” McDaniel explained. “I wish people would be more informed about snakes.” More on Geek.com:Watch: Snake Attempts to Escape As Eagle Eats It Alive on GroundGiant 15-Foot Snake Crawls Out of Car After Drunk Owner Falls AsleepLouisiana Officials Warn of Snakes, Alligators in Flood Waters
A decisão de Jürgen Klopp em tornar Jordan Henderson o novo capitão, depois que Steven Gerrard deixou o clube, foi posta em dúvida várias vezes, mas o treinador deixou claro que vai continuar assim.O treinador alemão insistiu que ele está feliz com a atitude de Henderson como capitão e que não vai mudar nada na sua capitania, como ele provou várias vezes até ao momento.O ex-treinador do BVB falou sobre o capitão da sua equipa, segundo ele, de acordo com o Independent:“Hendo está fazendo um incrível trabalho aqui. Se tu perguntares-me “estou pensando em dar a braçadeira para outra pessoa?”, então não.”Report: Origi cause Klopp injury concerns George Patchias – September 14, 2019 Divock Origi injury in today’s game against Newcastle is a cause for concern for Jurgen Klopp.Perhaps with one eye on Tuesday’s trip to Italy…“A capitania parece uma alegria no primeiro momento e, só então a partir desse momento irá funciona.”“Eu não acho que se perguntasse no balneário “quem quer ser capitão no próximo ano?”, 28 braços iriam levantar-se.”“O que precisamos no Liverpool são esses tipos de jogadores que são líderes. Hendo e Virgil são líderes e isso é incrível. ”“Mas eu não estou nem um pouco interessado no papel de capitão do que todos vocês são.”
Luciano Spalletti recently confirmed Inter Milan are yet to hit full gear this season despite positive results in recent weeks.The former Roma gaffer believes his team can consider themselves ‘back on track’ with a victory over Cagliari on Saturday.“It’s a week that can put us back on track and in touch with the top of the table,” the Coach said at a Press conference.“We’re growing; if we do well now, we’ll see how far we can go, regarding performance and potential.“It’s clear that everything passes through results. Our players must be at their best because the games are coming thick and fast.“Lautaro Martinez has the possibility to be an attacking outlet for us. He’s a strong player with a tough character. We’ll try to protect him. You might see him starting tomorrow.“Nainggolan can do more. He must be able to find the form that has so far evaded him because of his injury.Capello calls Lukaku “a modern striker” Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 The former Italian manager believes Romelu Lukaku is perfectly suited for Antonio Conte’s Internazionale Milan in the Serie A.“Vrsaljko may not be back before the international break, although he’s close to returning to training on the field.“He’s been doing exercises at the gym, so we have to see what he’s like and make a decision on him.“In my opinion, we’re working well, even if I don’t understand these moments of decline that happen to us like when Fiorentina drew level or in the second half against Torino.”Finally, did Spalletti have a response for Francesco Totti?“Totti? I understand there may be some curiosity, but it’s not a topic that interests Inter fans,” he noted.“I’ll read the book later, but it’s not one of the themes of this Press conference.”

July 15, 2008 – Santiago Horgan, M.D., director of the UC San Diego Center for the Future of Surgery, used USGI Medicalï¿½s EndoSurgical Operating System (EOS) to demonstrate a technique that allows for appendectomy without abdominal incisions at the Natural Orifice Surgery Consortium for Assessment and Research’s (NOSCAR) 3rd International Conference on Natural Orifice Translumenal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) on July 12.Dr. Horgan removed a patientï¿½s appendix and fully closed the gastrotomy from inside the stomach in front of the meeting’s 300 attendees. The ability to close the gastrotomy from inside the stomach is considered the major hurdle to the widespread adoption of incisionless NOTES surgery.Dr. Horgan became the first surgeon in the U.S. to remove a patient’s appendix through the mouth in late March, his 22nd “incisionless surgery” procedure. In later cases, he used USGI’s EOS to close the gastrotomy through the patient’s mouth following a NOTES appendectomy, reportedly another U.S. first.”The ability to close a gastrotomy safely and securely from inside the stomach represents the major leap forward in Incisionless surgery and will enable us to perform truly scarless NOTES procedures,” Dr. Horgan said. “Incisionless surgery technology has advanced significantly in recent years and we now have access to expandable tissue anchors that fit across the full thickness of the stomach wall and close the opening without a risk of leaks. With the EOS, we now have an operating platform for a wide variety of procedures.”During a NOTES procedure, surgical instruments are passed through one of the body’s natural orifices, such as the mouth or vagina, to remove a diseased organ such as an appendix or gallbladder. Operating solely through the body’s natural orifices eliminates external incisions and offers promise for less pain, shorter hospital stays, lower healthcare costs and no external scars compared to traditional and laparoscopic surgery.For more information: www.usgimedical.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | July 14, 2008 USGI Medical’s EOS Used to Complete Live Incisionless Appendectomy

A variety of factors, however, could cause projections for this and other modalities to change. Graphic courtesy of Pixabay Videos | Cardiac Imaging | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: The History of CT Calcium Scoring Arthur Agatston, M.D., clinical pro read more February 21, 2012 — The American Society of Radiologic Technologists (ASRT) released the results of its first-ever survey measuring demographics and teaching practices of faculty members in radiologic science programs. Developed to establish a baseline for the ASRT to monitor trends in the educational environment in the next decade, the State of Radiologic Sciences Education Survey highlights a number of unique statistics about programs.Respondents to the survey reported an average of 27.6 students entered each of their radiologic science programs in 2011. Of those students who completed a program, 93.1 percent passed the certification exam on their first attempt and 83.6 percent found jobs within six months.The survey also found an average of 3.4 full-time faculty members and 4.1 adjunct faculty members in each respondent’s program. Among faculty, 60 percent have a master’s degree, 22.2 percent hold a bachelor’s degree and 6.1 percent earned a doctorate.Higher education is a fundamental requirement for all instructors, according to the survey results. More than half of respondents recommend that adjunct faculty, classroom instructors and clinical coordinators have a minimum of a bachelor’s degree, and 47.6 percent think clinical instructors should hold at least bachelor’s.The survey also revealed instructors’ ideal classroom sizes. Respondents agree that 17 students per instructor was best for a classroom and five students per instructor ideal for the clinical setting.Respondents also answered a series of questions about their teaching practices. The questions focused on a mix of instructional methods, assessment and feedback strategies, and use of technology. For example, more than 70 percent of respondents said they always use lecture-discussion as an instructional method in the classroom. In addition, 58 percent of respondents reported that they always use the paper-and-pencil approach to administer tests, and 67.1 percent said they always use PowerPoint as an instructional tool. “The data provides administrators and program directors with information about programs that isn’t widely available within the educational community,” said ASRT chief academic officer Myke Kudlas, M.Ed., R.T.(R)(QM). “Educators and administrators can use the results to compare their programs with national norms in areas such as classroom size, number of instructors and common teaching techniques.”The ASRT sent the survey to more than 3,300 educators in November 2011 and 742 responded, an overall response rate of 22 percent.For more information: www.asrt.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Cynthia McCollough explains new advances in CT technologyPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 13:56Loaded: 1.17%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -13:56 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.
