Caribbean nations participate in UNbacked tsunami preparedness test

According to the scenario of the exercise, organized under the auspices of the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), an earthquake measuring 8.5 on the Richter scale will strike 90 kilometres off the coast of Oranjestad, Aruba, in the Caribbean Sea, generating a tsunami. The fictitious alert message will be sent by the Pacific Tsunami Warning Center (PTWC) and the West Coast and Alaska Tsunami Warning Center (WCATWC), triggering local tsunami response plans. “The test is designed to determine whether Caribbean countries are ready to respond in the event of a dangerous tsunami,” UNESCO stated in a news release. The agency added that the goal is to test the Tsunami and other Coastal Hazards Warning System for the Caribbean and Adjacent Regions, which was established in 2005 by the countries of the region in collaboration with the Commission, ensuring that the national focal points responsible for the dissemination of the alert and first responders receive timely warning. “Previous experience underlines the crucial importance of rapid transmission of information to minimize the damage caused by tsunamis,” said UNESCO.According to the agency, 75 tsunamis have occurred in the Caribbean over the past 500 years – representing about 10 per cent of the entire number of oceanic tsunamis in the world during that period. Simulated tsunami exercises have been organized previously in the Pacific in 2008 and 2011 and in the Indian Ocean in 2009 and 2011. read more

Polyarthrite rhumatoïde symptômes traitement diagnostic de quoi sagitil

first_imgPolyarthrite rhumatoïde : symptômes, traitement, diagnostic, de quoi s’agit-il ?La polyarthrite rhumatoïde est une maladie inflammatoire chronique touchant plusieurs articulations. Quels sont ses symptômes et quel est son traitement ?Définition : qu’est ce que la polyarthrite rhumatoïde ?La polyarthrite rhumatoïde est une maladie inflammatoire chronique (arthrite) touchant plusieurs articulations. C’est une maladie auto-immune, c’est-à-dire que ce sont les défenses immunitaires (anticorps) qui agressent l’organisme au lieu de le défendre. L’inflammation se fait au niveau de la synoviale, la membrane entourant les articulations.La polyarthrite rhumatoïde touche environ 0,25% de la population, dont trois fois plus de femmes que d’hommes. Le pic de fréquence se situe autour de la quarantaine. Il s’agit du plus fréquent des rhumatismes inflammatoires chroniques.Symptômes de la polyarthrite rhumatoïdeDes douleurs articulaires sont les premiers signes d’une polyarthrite rhumatoïde. Elles sont particulièrement fortes en fin de nuit et peuvent causer un réveil nocturne entraînant une forte fatigue. Elles s’accompagnent d’une raideur matinale persistant au moins 30 minutes.La maladie évolue par poussées d’intensité variable au cours desquelles du liquide s’accumule au niveau de la membrane synoviale. Les articulations sont alors gonflées et douloureuses. Les douleurs sont généralement symétriques (des deux côtés du corps) et touchent au moins trois endroits au niveau des mains, des doigts ou des pieds.Au cours de l’évolution de la polyarthrite, de nouvelles articulations sont susceptibles d’être atteintes : genoux, hanches, épaules, coudes…Causes de la polyarthrite rhumatoïdeLa cause de la polyarthrite rhumatoïde est encore inconnue. Cependant, plusieursfacteurs de risque sont connus pour favoriser l’apparition de la maladie : – une prédisposition génétique- le tabagisme- un choc psychologique (divorce, deuil…)- l’obésité- des changements hormonaux (ménopause par exemple)- dérèglement du système immunitaireTraitement de la polyarthrite rhumatoïdeD’importants progrès ont été faits dans le traitement de la polyarthrite rhumatoïde. S’il est commencé assez tôt, il est désormais possible de stopper l’évolution de la maladie. Le traitement médicamenteux de la polyarthrite comprend la prise d’antalgiques pour calmer la douleur, d’anti-inflammatoires pour traiter la raideur matinale ou de corticoïdes. Ils sont associés à un traitement de fond adapté à chaque individu. À lire aussiNouvelle cible médicamenteuse pour le traitement de l’arthriteSuivant l’évolution de la polyarthrite, des interventions chirurgicales sont parfois nécessaires. Il peut s’agir du remplacement de l’articulation endommagée ou d’une synovectomie, une opération qui consiste à retirer, partiellement ou entièrement, la membrane synoviale atteinte. De plus, il est recommandé de suivre des séances de rééducation avec des spécialistes  (kinésithérapeute, ergothérapeute) et si besoin, une aide psychologique. Le 2 septembre 2016 à 12:33 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Hughton Decisions favored Liverpool

Hughton Decisions favored Liverpool

first_imgBrighton manager Chris Hughton felt that the bulk of decisions went Liverpool’s way in their 1-0 home defeat to the league leaders.Mo Salah converted from the spot to give Liverpool a crucial 1-0 win at Brighton after the Egyptian was judged to have been fouled by Pascal Gross.Hughton, however, had no complaints about the penalty but believes that plenty other decisions favored them.“There’s no intent and referees have a hard job, but sometimes you feel things go your way and sometimes you feel some of the decisions don’t go your way,” Hughton told Sky Sports.“I felt today it was one of those days. No malice or anything towards the referee but I thought the bulk of decisions favored Liverpool today.Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“On the balance of play, I thought we deserved something.“They are such a good side and the opportunities they had were when we were trying to get back into the game and put bodies forward and made the game a bit more open. I thought we restricted them to minimal chances.“Pascal Gross’ chance [a shot in the second half] was probably as good as any of their chances.“We were always in the game and discipline was really good from the team, which it has to be because they can open you up.“In the latter part of the game we went for it a bit and showed a real intent to get back on level terms and I thought for the feel of the game that we deserved something.”last_img read more

Bits n Pieces Violinist lets her music do the talking

first_imgCommunication hasn’t always come easily to Haeun Jung — at least, not in the traditional sense.Jung, a shy, soft-spoken Union High School junior, first moved to the U.S. as a fourth-grader from her family’s home country of South Korea. She struggled at first, she said, not knowing English and growing accustomed to the culture of her new home in Vancouver.“I had a language barrier,” she said.But Jung soon found a way to communicate where words failed. Jung, now 16, began playing the violin at age 5 at her private school in Korea. In fifth grade, Jung joined the Portland Youth Philharmonic’s youngest orchestra group.“It was nice to not speak,” she said.After rising through the PYP’s ensembles in the past six years, Jung will be a featured soloist in the organization’s upcoming concert at Skyview High School on Sunday. Jung will perform with the Conservatory Orchestra and Wind ensemble, PYP’s second most advanced group.It’s an exciting but nerve-wracking venture for the young performer, she said. Jung will be performing in Sergei Prokofiev’s “Violin Concerto No. 2,” a dark, brooding piece that she said is highly technical. She has been practicing about two hours a day for several months to prepare for the concert, and the practice has paid off.“It’s very mechanical,” she said. “It has a modern feel to it.”Jung makes the piece look effortless, despite its challenges. In a video on her YouTube channel, Jung performs the 10-minute solo in the piece’s first movement, her face set and focused as her fingers dance across the strings.last_img read more

Graft rights violation barriers to inclusive society TIB

Graft rights violation barriers to inclusive society TIB

first_imgBangladesh may face challenges and risks in attaining the UN’s sustainable development goal-16 (SDG-16) despite having legal and institutional preparations, Transparency International Bangladesh (TIB) observed on Sunday, reports UNB.The SDG-16 has stressed promoting peaceful and inclusive societies for sustainable development, ensuring access to justice for all and building effective, accountable and inclusive institutions at all levels.A new TIB study reveals that corruption, bribery, money-laundering and violation of human rights continue in Bangladesh despite taking various steps to prevent those.TIB senior programme manager (policy and research) Shahzada M Akram presented the findings of the study titled ‘Sustainable Development Goal 16: Bangladesh’s preparation, reality and challenges in achieving the goal related to corruption prevention and good governance’ at a press conference at TIB office in the capital.TIB trustee board chairperson Sultana Kamal, its executive director Iftekharuzzaman and TIB advisor Sumaiya Khair were present at the press conference.About the institutional weakness, the study says the institutions responsible for implementing the National Integrity Strategy are not functioning properly here due to political influence, centralisation of power, and supremacy of the executive branch.There is no structure of being accountable to people in most of these institutions and their internal accountability system is also poor, the TIB study says these institutions never disclose information proactively.It says the government has a tendency of denying the allegations of violation of people’s fundamental rights.Iftekharuzzaman said the government has already taken enough preparation at legal and policy levels to achieve the SDG-16, but challenges and risks remain in attaining the goal.Although money is being siphoned off the country, he said, no effective step is taken to detect the people involved in big scams and money-laundering incidents and bring them to justice.”We talk about ensuring justice to all, but efforts are there to snatch independence of judiciary,” the TIB chief said.To achieve the SDG- 16, the TIB study put forward a set of recommendations, including ensuring a fair system for appointing the chiefs and the members of the constitutional and statutory institutions like the Election Commission and the Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC), removing article 70 from the country’s Constitution allowing parliament members to give votes against their own party, empowering the National Human Rights Commission and removing section 57 of the ICT Act, 2013.last_img read more

National Weather Service 4 Tornadoes Touched Down In San Antonio

National Weather Service 4 Tornadoes Touched Down In San Antonio

first_img– / 8The National Weather Service has confirmed that four tornadoes touched down in and around San Antonio Sunday night leaving in their wake damaged houses, downed trees and debris strewn down city streets.The first tornado to be confirmed was an EF-1 rated tornado that hit north central San Antonio in the area of Highway 281 and the Quarry.The tornado traveled for about 4.5 miles and winds reached speeds of up to 105 miles per hour. National Weather Service meteorologist Bob Fogerty says survey crews were able to determine it was a tornado by the direction of the damage and debris.“If it’s straight line winds, everything seems to be blown over in one direction. When there’s tornadoes – because tornadoes are circulating – we expect to see things thrown around in sort of a random pattern. Sometimes you can even see the circular pattern – that’s not necessarily the case but things get to be sort of random instead of all one direction,” Fogerty says.@SAFIREORGThis graphic of a tornado’s path in north central San Antonio was shared on Twitter by @saFireorg.The second tornado confirmed by the weather service was an EF-0-rated twister that was weaker than the first, had a path of 1.6 miles in Windcrest and Converse just east of Interstate 35. Winds reached speeds of up to 70 miles per hour.The third tornado another EF-1 with 105 mile per hour winds traveled for 1.4 miles near the putting green at the Northern Hills neighborhood near Nacodoches and Thousand Oaks.  More than 150 homes and structures were damaged across San Antonio and​ Bexar County.The fourth tornado touched down near Garden Ridge, east of Schoenthal Road on the Northeast Side. The weather service reported it was an EF-0 with 85 mile per hour winds and a path of only 0.70 miles.There were no fatalities but five people suffered minor injuries according to the San Antonio Fire Department and about 10 people had to be rescued from their homes or collapsed structures. About 84,000 CPS Energy customers lost power, but by about noon that number had been reduced to about 14,000. One of the heaviest hit areas included a neighborhood in North Alamo Heights off Linda Drive.According to the San Antonio Fire Department, firefighters responded to 13 water rescues during the storm event and two fire stations suffered structural damage. Fire Station 40’s bay doors were blown off and station 11’s roof above the dorm was damaged. Copyright 2017 KSTX-FM. To see more, visit KSTX-FM. Sharelast_img read more

July 8, 2009 – RT prolongs survival in patients with extrahepatic cholangiocarcinomas (EHC) are rare tumors of the biliary tree, according to a study published in International Journal of Radiation Oncology – Biology – Physics.*The researchers set out to examine the role of adjuvant and palliative RT in the treatment of EHC in a large patient population, by doing a retrospective analysis of 4,758 patients with EHC collected from the Surveillance, Epidemiology and End Results database. The primary endpoint was overall survival.Twenty-eight percent of the patients underwent surgery, 10 percent radiation therapy (RT), 14.7 percent underwent both surgery and RT, and 46.4 percent had neither RT or surgery. The median age of the patient population was 73 years (range, 23–104), 52.5 percent were men, and 80.7 percent were white. The median overall survival time was 16 months, 9 months, and 4 months for surgery and RT, surgery, RT, and no RT or surgery, respectively. The overall survival was significantly different between the surgery and surgery and RT groups (p These results suggest that palliative RT prolongs survival in patients with EHC. The benefit associated with surgery and RT was significant on univariate analysis but not after controlling for potential confounders using the propensity score. Future studies should evaluate the addition of chemotherapy and biologic agents for the treatment of EHC. *Int J Radiat Oncol Biol Phys. 2009 Jun 16;74(4):1-5, ET Shinohara, M Guo, JM MetzFor more information: www.redjournal.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiation Oncology | July 31, 2019 Laura Dawson, M.D., FASTRO, Chosen as ASTRO President-elect The members of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) elected four new officers to ASTRO’s Board of… read more News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more Catalyst PT image courtesy of C-RAD News | July 08, 2009 Palliative RT Prolongs Survival in Patients with EHC Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left).
