Local news fans dismayed by the closing of the daily newspaper in Orillia, Ont., are pledging by the dozens to donate $5 a month to a just-launched news website called OrilliaMatters.com, part of a grassroots movement in Canada to replace silenced community news voices.“Help support local news! Having a news source to call your own is part of your local identity,” entreats the website, which goes on to list the names of businesses and individuals who have answered the call.The site is the seventh started by fast-growing online news company Village Media Inc. of Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., but the first to directly seek donations.Pledges have climbed to about $1,600 a month since the site was launched on Jan. 8 — six weeks to the day after the 147-year-old daily Orillia Packet and Times become one of 36 newspapers shut down in the wake of a deal that saw Postmedia Network Inc. and Torstar Corp. swap dozens of papers in November.The newspaper owners said at the time that producing community newspapers in the face of significantly declining advertising revenues meant that many of the operations no longer had viable business models.Charity is not the only solution for Canada’s shrinking news industry but it’s a growing part of it, say some observers.“Frankly, I think that’s kind of where journalism has to go now,” said Mitch Diamantopoulos, an associate journalism professor at the University of Regina.“If the traditional patron, the advertiser, is bowing out of the scene and the public authorities won’t step in with grant support or public funds, it’s hard to imagine how else anything can get funded.”CWA Canada president Martin O’Hanlon said his national media union is pushing the federal government to loosen charitable status rules to allow non-profit news agencies to be created and sustained using donations that earn tax credits.The change is one of 12 key recommendations in a study released a year ago by think-tank, the Public Policy Forum. So far, the federal government has resisted endorsing the suggestions.According to the crowdsourced Local News Research Project, 238 local news sources in 173 communities were closed in Canada between 2008 and Dec. 20 of last year. That includes 212 newspapers, most of which were weeklies. Only 69 new local news outlets had sprung up to replace them, including 28 new digital-only sites.News of the Postmedia-Torstar closings convinced veteran community newspaper owner Mike Wollock to come out of retirement. The 63-year-old had owned eight of the doomed publications in the Ottawa region before selling them about 13 years ago.Wollock said he’s already hired seven staff and will open an office for his new company, Ottawa Community Voice Publishing Inc., at the beginning of February. By the end of next month, he plans to re-launch four new tabloid-sized newspapers to be published every second week.“I’m putting my own money up front to start them,” Wollock said angrily. “Why? These communities really got shafted by Postmedia.”He doesn’t want charity but said he’s counting on local advertising support to counter steep economic hurdles his venture must surmount.For example, distribution of the free publications is being handled by Canada Post, which means Wollock likely won’t be able to insert flyers, traditionally a key source of revenue for weeklies, because he’s paying by weight.The cheaper alternative would be to contract distribution to the local daily newspaper, the Ottawa Citizen, but Wollock makes it clear dealing with a Postmedia-owned property is not an option he will consider.Village Media CEO Jeff Elgie is focused on growth these days and says his “marginally profitable” company will start four more online newspapers in communities with existing daily newspapers in the next three months.He said the newspaper closings of recent years have given his business a boost — he opened a local news site just eight days after the daily Guelph Mercury was closed by Torstar in January 2016. He said the recent closing of the daily Barrie Examiner has revitalized Village’s underperforming BarrieToday.com website.John Hammill, a former publisher of the Packet and Times, was one of about 300 staff who lost their jobs following the TorStar-Postmedia swap.He says he invited Village Media to fill a “big black hole” in local news in Orillia and subsequently created a new job for himself as publisher of both OrilliaMatters.com and BarrieToday.com.He said he now supervises five full-time staff and a number of freelance contributors at both websites, compared with 12 full-time staff at the Packet and Times alone.Hammill is sold on the new format — “We don’t have to wait for presses any more, quality journalism doesn’t have to wait for our operations to catch up” — be he concedes it isn’t replacing newspapers in terms of the number of jobs.Follow @HealingSlowly on Twitter.
Today, Marriott Rewards’ announces that Emmy-nominated actress Laverne Cox and host of Hollywood Today Live Ross Mathews are joining this year’s #LoveTravels pride celebration of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community as official ambassadors.On Friday, June 10, Laverne Cox will unveil the #LoveTravels collaborative art installation, a collection of original art work submitted from people around the world, and dedicated to transgender lives and leaders everywhere. Ross Mathews, who is returning as a #LoveTravels ambassador for the second year, will join Laverne Cox to unveil the crowd-sourced installation, as well as join the Marriott Rewards #LoveTravels float during the Capital Pride Parade on Saturday, June 11.Following a global call for travelers to submit their own artistic expressions of love to the award-winning #LoveTravels campaign, Marriott Rewards received over 3,500 submissions from nearly 100 countries over just two weeks, that will be blended in a powerful large-scale art installation.For each individual art expression, Marriott Rewards and #LoveTravels will make a donation to support Casa Ruby’s lifesaving mission. Casa Ruby is the only bilingual, multicultural LGBT organization providing critical services to many of the most vulnerable transgender residents of Washington, D.C. The funds will help support Casa Ruby’s Drop-In and Crisis Intervention Center, as well as their Limited Financial Assistance program for those enrolled in career and employment services and to those facing extreme financial hardship.“For me personally, Marriott Rewards’ #LoveTravels creates powerful feelings because of who I am and what it stands for, sharing my vision of a world transformed by acceptance,” said Laverne Cox. “Partnering with a global company that is applying its integrity, its reach and its voice to help break down barriers for all LGBT individuals – it’s truly inspiring for me to join them.”Stacey Milne, Vice President of Portfolio Marketing Strategy & Planning, Marriott International said, “It’s our honor to stand with the LGBT community, not just during the month of June, but year round. With the third iteration of our #LoveTravels campaign, we are reaffirming our commitment to equality and using our voice to shine a light on the struggle the transgender community and their allies are currently enduring. This time last year, we were on the brink of one of history’s most significant Supreme Court decisions and this year, we’re excited to be back to celebrate an expression of love through art, for transgender lives with our two very special guests, Laverne Cox and Ross Mathews.”Said Ross Mathews, “It means a lot to me that Marriott has asked me to join the #LoveTravels campaign again this year for Capital Pride, especially given the focus and celebration of transgender lives. On one hand, it’s encouraging to see how far the nation has come in the past year, but on the other hand, I recognize how much more work must be done. #LoveTravels really resonates with me, and I can’t wait to celebrate with everyone as we march in this year’s parade.”Marriott Rewards also enlisted popular social media ambassadors and LGBT supporters from around the world to spread the #LoveTravels message including Jazz Jennings (TLC’s “I am Jazz”), Miles Jai (@MilesJaiProductions on YouTube), Pepe y Teo (one of Mexico’s most popular LGBT YouTubers), Shannon Beveridge and Cammie Scott (YouTube’s “Now This is Living”), and Trent and Luke (married YouTube couple from the UK).#LoveTravels kicked off in 2014 with Jason Collins, Geena Rocero, Tim Howard and Angela Simmons celebrating travelers exploring their personal passions and acclaiming their unique perspectives and experiences. It continued into 2015 with Hollywood star Diane Guerrero (OITNB, Jane the Virgin). During Capital Pride 2015, Marriott Rewards celebrated marriage equality by marrying George Carrancho and Sean Franklin in the Capital Pride Parade with TV personality Ross Mathews as officiant.To join the conversation or learn more, travelers can visit www.lovetravelswithme.com, follow #LoveTravels and @MarriottRewards on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
OTTAWA – With some trade uncertainty now out of the way, the Bank of Canada is widely expected to hike its benchmark interest rate today for the fifth time since the summer of 2017.This morning’s policy decision will be the central bank’s first since Canada agreed with the United States and Mexico earlier this month on an updated North American free trade deal.The bank left the rate unchanged at its last policy meeting in September and senior deputy governor Carolyn Wilkins later said the unknown consequences of the continental trade talks — as well as the tit-for-tat tariff dispute — were front and centre in the decision.Governor Stephen Poloz’s rate announcement today will also come as the Canadian economy continues to show signs of strength and the unemployment rate remains close to a four-decade low.A hike would be Poloz’s first increase since July, when the rate rose 25 basis points to 1.5 per cent.The central bank has carefully followed a gradual, data-dependent approach to raising the rate to assess factors, including how smoothly indebted households absorb the increases.

A statement from Mr. Guterres’ spokesman said the UN chief hopes that such broad support for State institutions would adhere to the constitution, and aim to safeguard the country’s security and stability. “The United Nations remains committed to supporting the security, sovereignty and territorial integrity of Lebanon,” the statement concludes. News reports suggest that Mr. Hariri unexpectedly offered his resignation during a televised speech Saturday, saying his life was in danger. The UN works on multiple fronts to assist Lebanon in forging a peaceful, stable and democratic future. The world body’s efforts there include the Office of the UN Special Coordinator for Lebanon (UNSCOL) – the Special Coordinator serves as the Secretary-General’s representative to the Lebanese Government, all political parties and the diplomatic community based in the country and carries out good offices work on behalf of the UN chief to assist Lebanese parties to reach peaceful and consensus-based solutions to contentious issues.

Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben may be in their mid-thirties and winding down on their glittering careers, but make no mistake – these two old boys are out for more glory at Bayern Munich in the upcoming seasonThe legendary duo, also known as “Robbery”, have played alongside each other at the Allianz Arena in Munich for the past nine years and have won seven Bundesliga titles in that period, along with the Champions League in 2013 in Bayern’s historic treble-winning season.They have also scored a combined total of 175 goals in 437 Bundesliga matches at the Bavaria.But, with Ribery now 35 and Robben 34, they could be forgiven for thinking that now is the time to start slowing down and savouring the final moments of their respective playing careers.However, taking it easy is the last thing on their minds and “Robbery” evidently intend to go out with a bang.Fiorentina owner: “Ribery played better than Ronaldo!” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Fiorentina owner Rocco Commisso was left gushing over Franck Ribery’s performance against Juventus, which he rates above that of even Cristiano Ronaldo’s.“We’re both professionals and always hungry,” Ribery told the Bundesliga website.But injuries may not evaded the duo in recent times with Ribery having made just 20 appearances in the league last term, while Robben featured 21 times.“For us, the most important thing is that the injuries stay away. If they stay away, we’re young,” Robben said about his partner in crime.“It’s really fun to play with him [Ribery] we get along very well. Franck and I already trained before the pre-season and are fit.”Both players had their contract renewed by Bayern at the end of the last season to June 2019.
Power was restored to 308 homes in the Hockinson and Proebstel area early Wednesday after they lost electricity Tuesday night, officials said.A utility pole went down about 8 p.m. Tuesday, potentially after it was hit by a car, said Erica Erland, spokeswoman for Clark Public Utilities.The outage, which affected the area around Northeast 74th to 107th streets and 188th to 231st avenues, was completely repaired around 2:10 a.m., Erland said. She said the job was complicated because eight strands or spans of power line needed to be repaired. Crews initially estimated power would be restored around 5 a.m. Wednesday.People can call 360-992-8000 to report outages or check on updates. The line is automated but always monitored by an employee.In more urgent cases, customers can call 360-992-3000 to speak with an employee 24/7.
Angela Lang/CNET Procter & Gamble’s Life Lab booth at CES 2019 was full of future-focused tech including the Airia, the company’s app and voice controllable fragrance dispenser. The Airia is about as big as an Amazon Echo or Google Home speaker and sits on a shelf or table in the center of your home. It uses inkjet printing technology, just like your friendly at-home printer. A glimpse at the Airia’s inkjet printing technology. Angela Lang/CNET Inside the Airia is a cartridge with 32 nozzles that pull fragrance from its reservoir into individual chambers. Each chamber contains a heater that heats the fragrance oil and causes a bubble that ejects the scent into the air. Because the droplets are 20 to 30 microns in size (that’s about half the width of a human hair), they can ride the natural airflow of your home and deliver consistent fragrance. The team at Airia recommends using one device per floor of your home for best results, and says each device can freshen up to 2,500 square feet depending on your floor plan. You can control the Airia using your voice, the Airia app or buttons on the device. The app enables scheduling, intensity control and on/off control, as well as letting you know when your cartridge is low and helping you reorder supplies. The Airia retails for $200 and includes one fragrance cartridge that lasts approximately 600 hours.

Nalgonda: Minister for Education G Jagadish Reddy stated that Telangana got a special identity with the formation of Telangana Rashtra Samithi under the legendary leadership of K Chandrashekar Rao.Along with Local MLA Bhupal Reddy, the Minister launched the party membership drive in Nalgonda town. Speaking on the occasion, Jagadish said TRS was the only party in the world which fulfilled all the poll promises in a given time frame. Also Read – Call to sensitize SC, ST laws in Hanamkonda Advertise With Us Stating that the Chief Minister has introduced a new style of people-friendly ruling in the State, he said the State government was putting all out efforts to turn Telangana into a fertile State and eradicate poverty. “The actual change in the State started after TRS came to power in 2014. All sections of people are getting benefits from the welfare schemes implemented by the State government,” the Minister claimed, adding that people who would wear TRS scarf would get special recognition as Telangana State was made a reality due to the efforts of the pink party.

He exuded confidence that TRS would create a record in membership with collective efforts of its leaders and cadre. Membership drive in-charge T Ravinder Rao, ZP chairman Banda Narender Reddy, MLC Tera Chinapa Reddy, party leaders Vemireddy Narsimha Reddy, Krishna Reddy, former MLC P Ravinder, party town president A Ramesh Goud, party local leaders and cadre attended the programme.
Standing at a crosswalk and waiting for the signal to change isn’t always the most exciting thing in the world. And even in a big city, it’s not always a situation where you witness a lot of personal interaction. The team behind Street Pong set out to make a difference.How? By building an embedded device that runs a simple touchscreen app that’s a lot like Atari’s groundbreaking classic. It gets attached to the signal post — where you’d often find a big, silver pushbutton — on either side of the street.When cross-traffic is flowing, the screen goes red and the game is ready for action. Once two pedestrian competitors put their fingers to the screen, the battle begins. Each player controls a skateboard, sliding it back and forth to whack the ball into their opponent’s goal.A red overlay provides the countdown timer. As players compete against each other it trickles down to the bottom of the screen until it’s time to cross. The display then goes green and a disappointed-yet-cheerful thumbs down lets players know that the game is over.The result? Two people who may otherwise have quickly brushed past each other in the street exchange a high-five, a few words, and a smile. Street Pong is a beautifully simple catalyst that could be responsible for spreading good cheer around urban areas around the world.Hildesheim isn’t a huge city, with a population of just over 100,000. Still, it’s not hard to imagine Street Pong being a hit in any major center. It’s good, clean fun… and a way to make a human connection (however fleeting) amidst the hustle and bustle urban activity.
“We had followed a consistent and prudent bidding strategy throughout the coal block auction process, with a serious long-term business perspective. We are puzzled with the decision and would make our best efforts to engage in a dialogue with the Coal Ministry and Government Authorities to present the facts,” it said in a statement.The government had late last night announced cancelling three bids — two bids of Jindal Steel and Power (JSPL) for three blocks (Gare Palma IV/2, IV/3 and Tara) and one bid by aluminium maker Balco for Gare Palma IV/1 and said it would take a final decision on these mines after deliberations. Also Read – I-T issues 17-point checklist to trace unaccounted DeMO cashAccording to sources, the government is looking at options of giving the mines whose bids have been cancelled to either Coal India or states.Coal Minister Piyush Goyal, however said, “The Department (Coal ministry) will take the final decision on the rejected bids, it will deliberate and then decide.” A Sesa Sterlite spokesperson Roma Balwani, however, refused to comment on the issue saying, “No comments.” Balco is a subsidiary of Sesa Sterlite. The government was re-examining the bids for nine coal blocks, including those where JSPL and Balco emerged top bidders in the recently held auction. “Bids for Gare Palma IV/1, IV/2, IV/3 and Tara coal blocks not accepted,” Coal Secretary Anil Swarup said. However, bids for five other blocks have been accepted, he added. JSPL had emerged as successful bidder for Gare IV/2, Gare Palma IV/3 and Tara coal blocks, while Bharat Aluminium Company (Balco) had successfully bid for Gare Palma IV/1 coal block.
LGBTI women’s magazine slams anti-trans lesbians: ‘You do not speak for us’ This Cardiff Pride’s future is in jeopardy – and it all comes down to parking spots ‘We’ve been to Pride parades all over the world and police being part of that was such an important piece,’ Fordyce told CBC in a radio interview on 27 July.She also said: ‘People recognizing that we are not where we were 50 years ago; we have a police service that supports us, that encourages inclusion and equality.’To Fordyce, the ‘large number’ of officers – which was Pride London’s concern – should be something to celebrate. Furthermore, she pointed out that officers’ eagerness to march signals that police believe in supporting the LGBTI community.‘I just hope that we can move past this bump in the road, and really work on those relationships,’ she added.GSN has reached out to Pride London for further comments.Read more about Prides:University chaplain fired after holding service to atone Pride Glasgow ‘offense’ Lesbian police officer Anthea Fordyce was ‘disappointed’ about not being able to wear her uniform at Pride London, Ontario on 29 July.

Most patients are diagnosed late-stage in the disease or are misdiagnosed with another form of dementia. The three hallmark biomarkers for AD are neurofibrillary “tangles,” protein amyloid or “neuritic plaques” and granulovacuolar degeneration of neurons. Unfortunately there is currently no “live” brain imaging diagnostic tool per se, as the imaging that is used occurs only when the progression of the disease is late-stage or postmortem.Computed tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) have been used for years to rule out other causes of dementia. More recently, positron emission tomography (PET) and cerebral metabolism using fluoro-deoxy-D-glucose (FDG) have been used to show characteristic changes in the brain and help rule in Alzheimer’s pathophysiological processes.In April the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approved Avid Radiopharmaceuticals’ (now part of Eli Lilly) Amyvid, a brain plaque diagnostic tool using florbetapir (F-AV-45). This radiotracer agent is delivered intravenously and is drawn to beta-amyloid plaque, a characteristic of AD. This allows a physician to see accumulations of amyloid in the brain, which in turn help the physician to determine whether a patient is suffering from some form of dementia, but cannot confirm a diagnosis of AD. Other diseases such as Parkinson’s disease, Huntington’s disease and Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease characteristically present with plaques as well, therefore physicians must still use mental and behavior cues to diagnose a patient with AD.Amyvid’s half-life is close to 110 minutes, compared to the previously used radiotracer known as PiB (Pittsburg compound B [fluorescent analog of thioflavin T]), which offered a half-life of only 20 minutes. A longer half-life means more time allowed for the physicians to perform the injection and analysis of a patient. Unfortunately, the downside to using florbetapir is its high cost and patient exposure to radioactive material.Amyvid is the only FDA-approved diagnostic PET tracer for imaging plaques in vivo, but there looks to be another agent in the pipeline that could potentially provide more diagnostic armament for detecting AD. Navidea Biopharmaceuticals’ AZD4694 Fluorine-18 labeled dye has completed Phase IIa clinical trials, and Phase III clinical trials will likely begin in 2013. This entity has been shown to be highly sensitive in detecting amyloid plaque. The signal-to-noise ratio remains low due to low background and white matter uptake, thus providing clear images of amyloid plaques. Navidea hopes AZD4694 will be used as an early identification tool for AD.The next step for brain imaging will have to be an imaging agent that can lead to an AD diagnosis, but for now Amyvid will be a great complement for tracking disease progression. GlobalData is confident that with Amyvid on the market, more novel agents will follow to become primary diagnostic tools for the diagnosis of AD.For more information: www.globaldata.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 X-ray images such as the one on the left fail to indicate many cases of advanced bone destruction caused by multiple myeloma, says the author of new guidelines on imaging for patients with myeloma and related disorders.

With the treatment, the center also became the first clinic in the world to employ the soft-tissue tracking beam control feature of ViewRay’s MRIdian system.The MRIdian system is the world’s first and only MRI-guided radiation therapy system. It provides continuous imaging during treatment so clinicians are able to see where the radiation dose is being delivered and adapt to changes and movement in the patient’s anatomy in real-time. The system tracks soft-tissues of the tumor directly, in fast planar images, then automatically compares the target to the plan and only allows treatment when the target is in range.“We had a patient with very limited treatment options,” said Michael Bassetti, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of radiation oncology at the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center. “The size and location of this patient’s liver tumor combined with the large observable motion prevented the safe delivery of treatment with X-Ray based linac systems. With ViewRay’s MRIdian system, we were able to ensure the accuracy of the delivery by directly tracking tumor and normal soft-tissue movement during treatment.”The first MRI-guided radiation therapy patient at Carbone Cancer Center was a liver cancer patient who was treated with the soft-tissue tracking beam control feature employing a 5 mm margin on a breath-hold scan acquired on the system.“I am grateful UW-Madison can now provide this remarkable treatment approach to our patients,” said John Bayouth, Ph.D., professor and chief of physics at the University of Wisconsin Carbone Cancer Center. “MRIdian enabled us to meet demanding prescription goals through its ability to track the actual tumor and surrounding normal tissues in real-time. We minimized the radiation dose to the bowel and normal liver while verifying the dose delivered to the tumor during treatment delivery. No longer do we have to assume what is happening inside the patient during treatment, now we are able to see changes and respond accordingly.”“We are excited to be one of the first centers to use MRI-guided radiation therapy in clinical practice,” said Paul Harari, M.D., professor and chairman of the Ddpartment of human oncology at the University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health. “Continual MR image-guidance and control is unique to the MRIdian system with the potential to change the way clinicians treat cancer patients.”For more information: www.viewray.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content News | Radiation Therapy | August 16, 2019 Drug Accelerates Blood System’s Recovery After Radiation, Chemotherapy A drug developed by UCLA physician-scientists and chemists speeds up the regeneration of mouse and human blood stem… read more The top piece of content in July was a video interview explaining how Princess Margaret Cancer Center is using machine learning to create automated treatment plans.

Homebuyers Prices 2017-04-03 Seth Welborn April 3, 2017 614 Views First-time Buyers Overpay on Housing Share in Daily Dose, Headlines, News, Origination In general, first-time homebuyers overpay on their home purchases—particularly when compared to more experienced buyers, according to a paper released by the Federal Housing Finance Agency on Monday.According to the FHFA’s Staff Working Paper 17-03, “Under What Circumstances do First-time Homebuyers Overpay? An Analysis Using Mortgage and Appraisal Data” by Jessica Shui and Shriya Murthy, first-time buyers technically pay less on their homes than repeat buyers, but this is because they purchase “less desirable houses.” When this is taken into account, Shui and Murthy reported, “first-time homebuyers actually pay significantly more than their more experienced counter parts.”Put simply, first-time buyers typically pay more for the same house than a repeat buyer would—about $3,000 on average. The paper continued, “Although FTHBs buy smaller, inferior, and cheaper homes, controlling for observed and unobserved house characteristics, they pay significantly more than repeat buyers . . . Specifically, a typical first-time homebuyer pays on average 1.09 percent more than a repeat homebuyer does for the same house. Given that the average sales price in the main sample is $275,582, this translates to about $3,000 per transaction.”Shui and Murthy proposed that this is likely due to a higher willingness to pay.“First-time homebuyers are inexperienced house hunters and are more likely to be marginal borrowers,” Shui and Murthy stated. “In this paper, we present a robust result that first-time homebuyers are overpaying for their houses—possibly a result of their inexperience. Our analysis also suggests that certain appraisals and appraisers might be able to mitigate FTHB (first-time homebuyer) overpayment, though the underlying channel remains unclear.”Though Shui and Murthy established that higher quality appraisers can help prevent overpayment, no correlation could be made between these situations and first-time homebuyers. Still, the notion of overpayment by first-time buyers presents an opportunity for policy change, the paper stated.“The challenge for policy makers is to help them gain access to sufficient credit while controlling their default risk,” the paper stated. “However, first-time homebuyers may experience handicaps before credit even comes into the picture.”
