Tighten privacy foreign funding rules in Liberal voting bill Electoral officer

first_imgOTTAWA – The acting head of Elections Canada is supporting the Trudeau Liberals’ attempt at rewriting federal election rules, but warns more needs to be done to limit the influence of foreign money at the ballot box.Acting chief electoral officer Stephane Perrault said the government’s elections reform bill, known as C-76, would significantly modernize the way federal elections are run in Canada and improve integrity in the system.But the legislation didn’t go far enough in some areas, he said. Absent any changes, C-76 would leave a loophole allowing foreign funds to be used by, or passed between, advocacy groups trying to sway voters.Perrault told a Commons committee studying the legislation that there should be strict wording in the bill to prevent foreign cash from influencing election outcomes.He also said provisions in the bill cracking down on hackers trying to sway an election were too narrow, and that they should lower the burden of proof to capture cyber attacks aimed at disrupting the vote or undermining trust in the electoral process.And Perrault also told MPs on the procedure and House affairs committee that they may want to look at whether parties should have to meet the same standards that apply to federal institutions, such as oversight by the federal privacy commissioner.C-76 is an omnibus bill that would reverse a number of changes the previous Conservative government introduced, including restoring the use of voter information cards as a valid form of identification.The bill would also limit spending by parties and advocacy groups during the three-month period before an election is officially called.The Liberals hurried the bill to committee by limiting preliminary debate in the House of Commons, drawing the ire of opposition parties that want more time to debate the legislation.The Liberals argue extensive debate isn’t needed because 85 per cent of the bill contained measures recommended by either Elections Canada, or the procedural and House affairs committee now studying C-76.Democratic Institutions Minister Karina Gould told the committee the government is open to amending the bill. But she suggested proposals to further tighten limits on third-party spending, particularly if they receive foreign donations, could run into legal challenges.Perrault said he was confident that Elections Canada could have all the changes in place for the October 2019 federal election, but that there would likely be room for improvement in how the rules were implemented for subsequent federal campaigns.last_img read more

Trump leaked phone call Dont worry about Canada says hes happy with

first_imgWASHINGTON – A leaked transcript of a Donald Trump phone call shows the president’s private comments about trade with Canada, and suggests he had an overwhelmingly positive attitude about the northern neighbour as he took office.The purported remarks made in a private phone call from late January are every bit as flattering as the president’s public comments just days later when Prime Minister Justin Trudeau visited the White House.They came in a call with Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto and were part of a leaked transcript published Thursday by the Washington Post. The context for the exchange was Trump’s bitter and escalating feud with Mexico at the time.U.S.-Mexico relations had just reached their nadir over the proposed border wall, and who would pay for it. Pena Nieto cancelled a trip to Washington.In the call, Trump told the Mexican president that he got huge crowds during the campaign, and had promised throngs of 25,000 to 50,000 people that Mexico would pay for the wall, so he pleaded with the Mexican president not to publicly contradict him on the issue.Pena Nieto encouraged a more positive discussion: He supposedly urged Trump to focus on the fact that the three NAFTA countries could negotiate a new trade framework. That prompted a rejoinder from the president.“Canada is no problem,” Trump replied, according to the leaked transcript.“Do not worry about Canada, do not even think about them. That is a separate thing and they are fine and we have had a very fair relationship with Canada. It has been much more balanced and much more fair. So we do not have to worry about Canada, we do not even think about them.”Those remarks echo public comments he made a few days later at a news conference with Trudeau. His rhetoric has ebbed and flowed since then. Trump has complained about Canadian dairy and lumber policies, and often threatens to scrap NAFTA barring a new deal.The reality entering trade talks is a bit more mundane.The U.S. has posted its priorities for the NAFTA negotiations starting Aug. 16, and they lie somewhere between the two extremes of the everything-is-fine attitude in that January phone call and the more aggressive talk favoured by some Trump advisers and occasionally the president himself.The U.S. positions include a laundry list of traditional American demands when it comes to Canadian trade. Most of the U.S. NAFTA demands could be found on annual lists published by the U.S. government, year after year.Those demands include more access for U.S. dairy and wine on Canadian store shelves; freer trade in telecommunications and banking; stricter patent rules for drugs; and tax cuts for online shopping of imported U.S. goods.Other priorities dear to the Trump administration include changes to auto-parts rules and the dispute-settlement process.A Canadian trade expert doesn’t put much stock in those January quotes. That’s because the president’s tune has changed, and could change again, said Peter Clark, a former federal official and now president of Grey, Clark, Shih and Associates.“That was then, this is now,” Clark said in an interview. “I think (Trump) was pretty relaxed about Canada early in the year… He’s got his neck out now on dairy, on lumber…“He’s only as reliable as his last tweet, or his last phone call.”Late Thursday, the Prime Minister’s Office said Trudeau hosted a NAFTA call with his provincial and territorial counterparts, during which they pledged “to ensure that the message about the value of NAFTA and the trade relationship with Canada is understood by key U.S. decision makers.”last_img read more

UN envoy for AIDS in Africa holds talks with Botswanas President

During their talks, Envoy Stephen Lewis and President Festus Mogae touched on national and African AIDS initiatives and the role of African leaders in combating HIV/AIDS in the region. While in Botswana, Mr. Lewis also met with the head of the national AIDS coordinating committee, as well as the heads of UN agencies in the country. His schedule also includes meetings with representatives of civil society and visits to field projects dealing with HIV/AIDS.In other news on AIDS, musician Salman Ahmad today launched a new push to fight HIV/AIDS in Pakistan as part of the global UN effort to battle the epidemic. “In my capacity as an artist, I will look at all possible means to help raise awareness about AIDS,” Mr. Ahmad told a press conference in Islamabad held in conjunction with the launch. Pledging to focus on helping the younger generation, Mr. Ahmad noted that “AIDS puts a greater challenge on each and every one of us to be more responsible for our personal and public behaviour.” Kristan Schoultz of the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) stressed that while Pakistan is currently experiencing a low prevalence of the disease, the country’s young people would definitely be at risk unless they received proper information about the epidemic. “If we work together, we can make a difference,” she said. “Now is the time to address the issue.” Pakistan’s campaign is part of a global effort by UNAIDS aimed at involving men, particularly young men, more fully in the fight against the epidemic. read more

Bus and coach registrations beat expectations

Registration volume stable for big buses; some modest growth potential possible. Big coach registrations also stable at an unexpectedly high level. The recent years’ trend growth for heavier mini buses and midi buses has remained firm. “2008 continues some of the encouraging trends of last year but the industry is wary of economic pit-falls ahead”, said Paul Everitt, SMMT chief executive. “The lighter end of the bus market has seen the best growth in recent years and this seems to be holding. Stability also seems the watchword in both the big bus and big coach sectors, after unexpectedly good registrations last year.”DownloadClick to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window) read more

The Ohio State poster child How Joey Lane made his dream a

Ohio State senior guard Joey Lane (14) throws his arms up for the crowd to cheer at the end of the game against Iowa on Feb. 26. Ohio State won 90-70. Credit Cori Wade | Lantern PhotographerEvery pregame ritual is the same for Joey Lane.He leads Ohio State onto the court, bouncing a basketball violently against the court as soon as his feet touch the hardwood.As the lineups are announced, he makes his way to the post area, greeting each starter with a handshake, custom-made for each one.Lane then makes his way to the end of the bench, a familiar home to the senior guard. He knew, when choosing Ohio State, he would forgo an opportunity at significant playing time. But Lane was fine with that.As tip-off nears, “Joker and the Thief” by Wolfmother begins to ring in every corner of the Schottenstein Center. Lane, physically pushing his fellow teammates, begins to jump up and down to the beat of the song, waving the towel that usually lives around his neck.What Lane has coined as the “towel gang” is not unique to Ohio State. The senior guard said he stole is from another school, a school he would not disclose.But what the “towel gang” represents to Lane is unique: It’s his role for Ohio State. A role that has remained for four seasons and survived a coaching change, a losing season, an NCAA Tournament run.And it’s more than just to be a walk-on. It’s more than running the scout team or pumping up his teammates. It’s more than just a name for the student section to chant when the Buckeyes have an insurmountable lead.Lane’s role is to be the best teammate he can be, a teammate he will be for the final time at home Sunday.  This was Lane’s job, the role he was given. A role that, when asked about fulfilling for the final time at Value City Arena, made him break down in tears and embrace senior guard C.J. Jackson and redshirt senior guard Keyshawn Woods. It was a role he never thought he would have.Clad in scarlet and gray from an early age, Lane grew up watching Greg Oden, Evan Turner and Aaron Craft, who he took as his favorite player, adopting the Buckeye guard’s No. 4 jersey as his own at Deerfield High School in Deerfield, Illinois.Lane wanted to be like Craft, but was also trying to be realistic, viewing this hope as too far-fetched.“The dream was to play here,” Lane said. “I never thought in a million years as a 5-foot-9 guy my junior year of high school that I would ever be able to do that.”But he got his chance.As a senior at Deerfield, Lane was named captain of the basketball team, allowing him the decision to choose where his team could train over the summer. So he chose an Ohio State basketball camp, giving him the chance to play on the court he watched as a fan throughout his childhood.Lane and his team excelled, going 8-0 during the camp and putting the Ohio State coaching staff on notice.  At first, the conversation revolved around finding the right school for Joey, looking for a Division-II or Division-III school that gave him the opportunity to play regularly.Ohio State senior guard Joey Lane leads the Buckeyes onto the court prior to the start of the game against Maryland on Jan. 18. Ohio State lost 75-61. Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo EditorLane flipped the script, shifting the conversation to finding out if there was any chance to live out his far-fetched dream. Ohio State head coach Thad Matta made that dream a reality, naming Lane as the first preferred walk-on in program history.“I’m forever indebted to the guy because he gave me the chance,” Lane said.After Matta’s departure from the program, that love could have been quickly taken away with a new coaching staff.Lane was granted a scholarship in his first two seasons at Ohio State, what his father Scott referred to as a “one-year deal.” With a new coaching staff, a scholarship for a walk-on was not guaranteed.Chris Holtmann had never met his inherited preferred walk-on. But the former Butler head coach knew what his impact had been.In their first meeting, the newly named Ohio State head coach reassured Lane he had a major role to play moving forward, using a word Matta and his staff had never used when talking about him: leadership.“They said, ‘You know what, the fact that you care so much about the university, that means something,’” Lane said. “That resonated with them.”According to Lane’s mother Nancy, one of Joey’s former coaches told him, “Know your role and be the best at it you can be.” From that moment forward, Lane embraced that role.Morphing into whatever opponent the Buckeyes will next see, he began to lead the scout team — preparing the team for its upcoming opponent in practice and allowing him the opportunity to get out of his shell, shooting really deep shots or even posting up in the paint.“Throughout my four years, I’ve been Denzel Valentine, I’ve been Carsen Edwards, I’ve been anyone that you can imagine,” Lane said.Lane became engrossed in game plans and scouting reports, calling out his teammates when something did not go as planned on the court. The walk-on did have an increased opportunity to use that knowledge on the court during games more than he had in Matta’s tenure. In his junior season, Lane played in seven games for 20 minutes, matching his career total, but made only 1-of-7 attempts from the field. But this was not Lane’s priority. He had accepted the position he was in. “Any playing time I got was gravy. I never in a million years thought I would play significant or meaningful minutes,” Lane said. “I never worked any less hard because I never thought I would be playing.” Instead of making an impact on the court, Lane began his attempt to extend his legacy passed his four seasons of eligibility. Prior to the start of the 2017-18 season, then-redshirt senior guard Andrew Dakich was looking for a school with which to end his collegiate career. As soon as he stepped foot onto Ohio State’s campus, he was introduced to Lane, who showed him around campus, grabbing a meal with him and incoming freshman forward Kyle Young.“I didn’t really know him at all before I got here, and he was really comfortable,” Dakich said. “He’s easy to talk to. That first moment, we kind of started to become teammates.” With his love for the university and with what Dakich calls an enthusiasm and energy unique to the walk-on guard, Lane took an important part in helping build the future for Ohio State, being called to host about every recruit that visited. When he recruits, Lane said he does not try and push Ohio State on the high school players. Instead, he said he talks about how special of a place he thinks Ohio State is. “I love Ohio State. I would sell my soul for Ohio State, and that’s what I try and do to these kids,” Lane said. Holtmann said Lane has been a tremendous recruiter for the Buckeyes, calling him a great advocate for the university, having the ability to successfully convey the message of the program to recruits and their families. But talking to recruits on visits, Lane wants to make one thing perfectly clear. “Their life will be a lot better than mine,” he said. This is the aspect that makes coaches, teammates and those around Lane believe why he has found success at Ohio State: his relatability. “He’s like the Ohio State University poster child,” Nancy Lane said. “It’s his dream school and he’s living out his dream.” Dakich, now a graduate assistant coach for Ohio State, calls Lane the connector with the student section, building the relationship between the men’s basketball team and the fanbase, becoming the face of a team he does not play much for. But that does not mean this fanbase does not want him on the court. If Ohio State holds a seemingly insurmountable lead at the end of the game, Dakich, Holtmann and the rest of the coaching staff know what is coming.

Credit: Casey Cascaldo | Photo Editor“We want Joey. We want Joey.” It was a chant Lane thought about on the bench prior to the Northwestern game on Feb. 20. When it began to happen, as thousand of fans began to chant his name with the Buckeyes en route to a 63-49 victory, Lane thought it could be one of the last times he heard it. “It’s a hard feeling to put into words because it’s dumb, but it’s awesome at the same time,” Lane said. “First of all, it means we are winning, which is very important.  But it also means they care about me, they like me, they see what I am doing and they appreciate it.” For Lane, the chants have worked more than they ever have before. In his final season, coming into the final regular season game of the season, the senior guard has played in 13 games for 35 minutes, hitting 4-of-6 from the field, including 3-of-4 from 3. But to his parents, those chants are validation. It makes them feel like their son, who could have had way more playing time at a smaller school, made the right decision. “We raised our kids to be good people,” Nancy Lane said. “To do the right thing, to be a good friend, to be a good teammate and to put others first. When you see other people embrace that, it’s powerful.” For Dakich, Lane signifies everything a program wants in a walk-on. For Holtmann, Lane has earned the right to be praised, to have his name chanted to come into the game. “He’s really easy to care about, easy to like, easy to want to see him be successful,” Holtmann said. “He’s easy to root for.” But for Lane, it’s just another aspect of his role. It’s being the same guy he was in high school no matter the playing time he receives. To be the positive reinforcement, the teammate, the friend on the bench. To have the custom handshake with each player, to bounce up and down to “Joker and the Thief” courtside as the ball is tipped. It’s a role that he will have at the Schottenstein Center one final time Sunday, the last time he will lead Ohio State onto the court, bouncing the basketball violently against the court as soon as his feet touch the hardwood. It’s something Lane has not thought about much. But it’s something he said will be surreal. “I’ll definitely have to soak it all in and look at my family, that’s for sure,” Lane said. “It will be pretty darn cool because it’s somewhere I never expected to be.” read more

One third of people are not taking enough of their prescriptions to

There was also an agreement that specific and detailed Irish research was needed examining issues behind compliance failure as well as a focus on improving patient understanding.Read: Irish people warming up to generic medicines>Read: People more likely to take preventive medications combined in a single pill> IT IS ESTIMATED that up to 30 per cent of patients are not finishing their prescriptions, or even taking enough of the drug to relieve symptoms and cure them and drug prices are a key factor.Up to 40 per cent of people fail to follow a proper medication regime to prevent health problems. This data was highlighted in a report published by the IPPOSI yesterday.The report was put together after a roundtable discussion over the summer with the Secretary General, key stakeholders, patients and patients groups.Eibhlin Mulroe, CEO of IPPOSI told TheJournal.ie that worrying data shows failure to take medication for Irish patients with osteoporosis or those in remission for breast cancer is actually worse with up to 50 per cent of people with long-term illnesses failing to adhere to treatment.There is a number of reasons for this and psychology becomes a part of it – it’s a reminder that they have cancer to take that pill, for example or there are side effects.

The honeymoons over Leos facing loads of challenges on his first working

With the Dáil being on a break for the last couple of weeks, work has been building up, and there is a lot to get through before the summer recess.On the agenda? His first controversy.Máire Whelan and the Court of AppealSince last week, his first scandal as Taoiseach has been bubbling over: the appointment of the former Attorney General to the Court of Appeal.During Enda Kenny’s last days as Taoiseach, Whelan was approved for the role by Cabinet. Opposition members say the appointment stinks of cronyism.While no one is questioning Whelan’s legal capabilities, serious questions are being asked as to whether proper procedures were followed in appointing her to the new role, after it emerged that three High Court judges were also interested in the job.It has also revealed last week that instead of excusing herself from the room, Whelan was present during last week’s Cabinet meeting when her appointment was raised by the then-Justice Minister Frances Fitzgerald.

It is hardly the fresh new government approach Varadkar was hoping the public would perceive.In addition, the weekend newspapers reported that no date was set for Whelan’s appointment to be affirmed by the president.However, late Sunday night it was confirmed that the government had got in touch with Áras an Uachtaráin requesting for it all to be signed, sealed and delivered on Monday.

The cross-party committee is tasked with discussing the recommendations made by the Citizens’ Assembly. Before the committee has even got going, there has already been trouble over the number of TDs and senators allowed to sit on it.Senators are fighting for more seats, while there have also been arguments about whether members can rotate their seat between colleagues. Fine Gael also had trouble finding members to sit on the committee with not many politicians willing to put their head above the parapet on the issue.The committee’s first meeting is being held in private tomorrow, where it’s understood a chair will be selected. It is expected that Fine Gael Senator Jerry Buttimer will be elected. Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Junior Minister for Mental Health Helen McEntee.

Une momie inca vieille de 500 ans révèle ses secrets

first_imgUne momie inca vieille de 500 ans révèle ses secretsUne étude menée sur une momie inca issue d’une collection allemande révèle la tragique histoire d’une jeune femme atteinte d’une maladie parasitaire et achevée par des coups violents à la tête. Après avoir passé plus d’un siècle dans l’oubli, une momie inca vient enfin de livrer ses secrets. Les analyses menées sur la dépouille révèlent l’histoire d’une jeune femme atteinte d’une redoutable maladie parasitaire reconnue pour épaissir les parois du cœur et de l’intestin. Bien qu’elle soit mortelle, cette pathologie n’est pourtant pas la cause du décès de la malade. La victime a en effet été tuée de coups à la tête. Selon les chercheurs, il s’agirait très certainement d’un acte de sacrifice infligé en tant que rituel sur cette personne en fin de vie. Depuis 1890, la momie inca séjourne en Allemagne. La sépulture a été acquise par la princesse Thérèse de Bavière lors d’un séjour en Amérique du Sud puis a finalement rejoint la Collection archéologique d’État, à Munich. Malheureusement, les nombreux bombardements infligés à la ville au cours de la guerre ont une raison de la documentation sur l’origine de cette pièce de collection. Pour percer le mystère, une équipe de chercheurs de l’Université de Munich a passé la momie dans un scanner. Les images obtenues aux rayons X ont ainsi dévoilé de précieuses informations sur la défunte.Des chocs violents à la tête Les observations témoignent d’un véritable traumatisme crânien. Vu de l’extérieur, le squelette de la jeune femme inca a l’air assez normal, toutefois, les os frontaux du crâne sont complètement détruits. Selon Andreas Nerlich, co-auteur de l’étude, ces fractures sont le signe de chocs très violents. “Cette femme a du recevoir des coups vraiment graves affligés sur son crâne avec un objet tranchant”, explique le spécialiste à LiveScience. 
Les analyses, publiées dans la revue PLoS ONE indiquent que la jeune femme a vécu à une période située approximativement entre l’an 1451 et 1642. Elle est morte à l’âge d’environ 25 ans. Pour le moment, les causes de son décès sont purement hypothétiques. Une maladie parasitaire Toutefois, des tests ADN révèlent la présence de parasites dans le tissu rectal. Selon les chercheurs, la malade était atteinte depuis son enfance de la maladie de Chagas, une maladie parasitaire provoquée par le protozoaire Trypanosoma cruzi, transmis par une sorte de punaise hématophage.La pathologie, qui sévit encore aujourd’hui, se manifeste notamment sous la forme de troubles de la respiration et de la digestion. Il est ainsi possible, si l’on en croit les archéologues, que cette personne malade ait fait l’objet d’un sacrifice humain “Elle a peut être été choisie comme victime pour un sacrifice rituel, parce qu’elle était si malade qu’elle n’aurait survécu que pour une période relativement courte”, explique Andreas Nerlich.À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ? Après sa mort, la dépouille de cette femme a été enterrée peu profondément, probablement dans le désert d’Atacama où le sable aride et les vents continus l’ont rapidement desséché, provoquant sa momification naturelle.(Crédit photo : Panzer et.

Thai cave boys to make first public appearance

Photo: ReutersThe 12 Thai boys and their soccer coach rescued from a flooded cave will make their first public appearance on Wednesday when they hold a nationally-televised news conference in Chiang Rai.The boys, aged 11 to 16, and their 25-year-old coach sparked an international rescue effort after they became trapped inside the flooded Tham Luang cave complex in Chiang Rai.The boys and their coach have been in hospital in Chiang Rai since they were rescued.”I pass the hospital where the children are staying every day and every day I say a prayer to thank Lord Buddha for their return,” said Duang, a noodle vendor, who only wanted to be identified by her first name.The Thai government will allot 45 minutes’ airtime on its “Thailand Moves Forward” for the soccer team’s news conference.The show, which will be recorded at Chiang Rai’s provincial hall at around 6 p.m. local time after the evening national anthem, will also be broadcast live across dozens of channels.Some Thai television personalities joked that the boys will help ratings of the otherwise dull television show, which is usually reserved for monotonous conversations about the military government’s performance.”This is the story all Thais want to hear. Don’t switch it off, don’t put it on mute,” joked a presenter VOICE TV, a television station that is often critical of the military government.”It should help the Thailand Moves Forward show’s ratings shoot through the roof,” he added.The soccer team’s rescue operation drew global media attention and hundreds of journalists to the scene.Many journalists left after the last four boys and their coach were brought out safely last week. But the sleepy, northern town of Chiang Rai kicked into action again on Wednesday ahead of the boys’ much-anticipated appearance.”The reporters are back. I had to pick a Japanese reporter up from the airport at 2 a.m.,” said Manop Netsuwan, a Chiang Rai resident and tour operator.At Chiang Rai Airport a screen welcoming visitors shows a cartoon of the group with rescuers and the words: “Our Heroes”.The boys, their coach and some rescuers will be asked a series of carefully vetted questions submitted by journalists in advance, officials said.They have asked the media and the public to respect the boys privacy after they are discharged, citing concerns about the sudden impact of media attention on the boys’ mental health.”The media know that the children are in a difficult situation, they have overcome peril and if you ask risky questions then it could break the law,” Tawatchai Thaikaew, deputy permanent secretary at the Justice Ministry, told reporters on Wednesday.”We don’t know what wounds the kids are carrying in the hearts,” he added.last_img

Study suggests a big increase in Arctic precipitation over the coming century

first_img Citation: Study suggests a big increase in Arctic precipitation over the coming century, much of it rain (2017, March 16) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2017-03-big-arctic-precipitation-century.html Journal information: Nature Climate Change © 2017 Phys.org Mosaic of images of the Arctic by MODIS. Credit: NASA Humans to blame for bulk of Arctic sea ice loss: study Explore furthercenter_img (Phys.org)—A pair of researchers with the University of Groningen in the Netherlands has found via climate modeling that it appears likely that the Arctic is likely to see substantially more precipitation over the next century, much of it in the form of rain. In their paper published in the journal Nature Climate Change, Richard Bintanja and Olivier Andry describe their results when running 37 climate models programed to describe Arctic conditions over the years 2091 to 2100. More information: R. Bintanja et al. Towards a rain-dominated Arctic, Nature Climate Change (2017). DOI: 10.1038/nclimate3240AbstractClimate models project a strong increase in Arctic precipitation over the coming century, which has been attributed primarily to enhanced surface evaporation associated with sea-ice retreat. Since the Arctic is still quite cold, especially in winter, it is often (implicitly) assumed that the additional precipitation will fall mostly as snow. However, little is known about future changes in the distributions of rainfall and snowfall in the Arctic. Here we use 37 state-of-the-art climate models in standardized twenty-first-century (2006–2100) simulations to show a decrease in average annual Arctic snowfall (70°–90° N), despite the strong precipitation increase. Rain is projected to become the dominant form of precipitation in the Arctic region (2091–2100), as atmospheric warming causes a greater fraction of snowfall to melt before it reaches the surface, in particular over the North Atlantic and the Barents Sea. The reduction in Arctic snowfall is most pronounced during summer and autumn when temperatures are close to the melting point, but also winter rainfall is found to intensify considerably. Projected (seasonal) trends in rainfall and snowfall will heavily impact Arctic hydrology (for example, river discharge, permafrost melt), climatology (for example, snow, sea-ice albedo and melt)8, 9 and ecology (for example, water and food availability). Over the past several years, climate scientists have been running various models in different ways trying to understand why Arctic sea ice continues to melt faster than models predict. In this new effort, the researchers took a closer look at the impact caused by changes in the amount of precipitation. They combined data from a variety of sources and used it to run 37 climate models, finding that the Arctic is likely to see an increase in precipitation by as much as 4 percent, which is double that for the rest of the planet. They note that retreating ice leaves more open water, which leads to more evaporation and more snow and rainfall. The models suggested the rainy season in the Arctic will likely last longer in the future and reach farther north. They also theorize that sometime in the next century, it will be possible to navigate a ship to the North Pole because all of the sea ice will be gone.In another study, an international team of researchers ran models of their own and concluded that almost half of the ice that has melted in the Arctic over the past century and a half may be attributed to natural changes such as variations in wind and water currents. They have also published their results in Nature Climate Change. They suggest that the reason so many climate models have failed to accurately predict how much ice would melt in the Arctic and when is because they fail to account for natural climate variations. They believe the Arctic is currently experiencing a natural warm spell, which, when combined with human-caused global warming, is causing ice to melt at very fast rate.

Lead investigator Mary M. O’Sullivan, M.D., associate professor at the Icahn School of Medicine Mount Sinai, will share a visual case series to demonstrate how DDR may potentially assist both the pulmonologist and the radiologist to more clearly identify newly recognized pathophysiologic abnormalities and better understand the context of the underlying disease.“Dyspnea, or shortness of breath, is a common complaint with different underlying causes that can make it difficult to pinpoint the patient’s condition,” explained O’Sullivan. “It involves complex pathological processes that may be the result of lung disease or heart disease, as well as abnormalities of the musculoskeletal system, neurological disease and body habitus. Additionally, for the first time, in DDR, the functionality of quiet respiration (tidal breathing) is explored. This is of great importance because tidal breathing is the type of breathing that the patient does during most of their daily life. Current studies, such as CXR, CT scan and PFT, are performed in a forced breath maneuver and this can underestimate how much pulmonary reserve the patient actually has. By enabling direct visualization of the kinesiology of the respiratory system, DDR may allow for earlier discovery and a more clear understanding of the etiology of dyspnea in a patient, enabling the clinician to streamline tests and reduce the time from evaluation to diagnosis.”In 2017, the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai and Konica Minolta Healthcare partnered to study the impact of DDR in the assessment of dyspnea and pulmonary diseases, including asthma and chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Clinicians from the departments of pulmonology and radiology have been evaluating the use of DDR across different pulmonary disease types. At the ATS 2018 annual meeting, a clinical study by Mount Sinai concluded that DDR may be a clinically relevant option to assess COPD severity in the acute setting and for patients unable to perform PFTs. At the 2018 annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA), Alexander Somwaru, M.D., assistant professor of radiology at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai, and Alexander Kagen, M.D., site chair of radiology at Mount Sinai West and Mount Sinai St. Luke’s hospitals, along with their colleagues presented their work on the use of DDR in thoracic imaging. Somwaru believes that, “DDR may have the potential to expand the horizons of traditional radiography by providing biodynamic diagnostic imaging for disease evaluation and treatment.”The study abstract is available here.For more information: www.konicaminolta.com/medicalusa FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 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 News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more Image courtesy of Imago Systems Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.
