Conservative robocall pitches memberships tied to Liberal MPs cancer

first_imgOTTAWA – A member of a federal Conservative riding association in Toronto has reportedly made a robocall that tried to pitch party memberships by citing a Liberal MP’s cancer diagnosis.CTV News said late Wednesday that it has audio of the call in which a man who says he’s the vice president of the Scarborough Centre riding association asks supporters to join the party, stating Salma Zahid was “very ill” and “there may be a need for a byelection.”In February, the Liberal MP said she was taking a medical leave to be treated for Stage 4 non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and the network says the robocall was made a month later.Chris Mellor confirms he made the call and told CTV he does not regret it, saying it was appropriate given Zahid’s public statement on her diagnosis.He said in terms of election readiness, “we felt that we should have our members, as many members as possible, in order to select the candidate in the event that she resigned, or felt that she could no longer continue.”Zahid — who returned to work last month and is now cancer-free — told CTV News she was disappointed to learn her illness was being exploited for political advantage.“I can say that it’s reprehensible, disgusting, and disappointing, that they are trying to create fear among my constituents and it makes it harder for me as a member of Parliament to do my job,” she said.Daniel Schow, a spokesperson for Andrew Scheer, told the network that the Conservative leader was “unaware of the calls,” adding that “speculating on another MPs health issues for political motivations is completely unacceptable under any circumstances.”Conservative Party spokesperson Cory Hann added that the volunteer who made the call is being removed from the riding association board and will not hold any roles with the party.Heritage Minister Pablo Rodriguez said the call is a “new low in politics” and the Conservatives owe Zahid an apology.“I think it’s not only unacceptable but it’s sad,” he said. “This should never, ever happen again.”Zahid said she is “seriously considering” raising this matter with House of Commons Speaker Geoff Regan when Parliament resumes next month.The report was published on the eve of the Conservative Party’s three-day policy convention in Halifax.last_img read more

Freeland calls tariffs absurd after meeting US Senate committee

first_imgOTTAWA – Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland ventured Wednesday onto Donald Trump’s home turf, denouncing his “absurd” tariffs and forcefully arguing for preservation of the world’s rules-based order — with or without the United States.Freeland reiterated Canada’s strong opposition to the American president’s steel and aluminum tariffs after meeting with the influential U.S. Senate foreign relations committee in Washington on Capitol Hill.She was the first Canadian politician to set foot in the American capital after Trump and two of his top economic advisers launched unprecedented personal attacks on Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for criticizing the tariffs at the weekend G7 summit in Quebec.The minister stayed above the fray on those attacks, but she did not hesitate to repeat Canada’s opposition to the tariffs in the bluntest of terms — in particular the use of Section 232 of U.S. trade law to justify the action on national security grounds.Later Wednesday evening during a major foreign policy speech, Canada’s top diplomat broadened her focus with a sweeping defence of something Trump has little time for — the international rules-based system that the U.S. led in creating after the Second World War.She told a crowd of diplomats, academics and politicians blocks from the White House that she realizes that some Americans no longer think that world order is of any benefit to them, even though they helped create it and wrote “the biggest cheques” to support it.“We see this most plainly in the U.S. administration’s tariffs on Canadian steel and aluminum,” Freeland said in her acceptance speech for winning the Foreign Policy journal’s diplomat of the year award.“They are a naked example of the United States putting its thumb on the scale, in violation of the very rules it helped to write.”Freeland argued that the United Nations, the World Bank, the World Trade Organization and other global institutions created in 1945 were never perfect. But she said those institutions remain the guardians of liberal democratic values at a time when populism and authoritarianism “is on the march” in Russia, China, Venezuela and elsewhere.”“We all know we will be strongest with America in our ranks — and indeed in the lead,” she said. “But whatever this great country’s choice will turn out to be — let me be clear that Canada knows where it stands.”Freeland gave a thinly veiled thumping to Trump’s America First foreign policy.“You may feel today that your size allows you to go mano-a-mano with your traditional adversaries and be guaranteed to win. But if history tells us one thing, it is that no one nation’s pre-eminence is eternal.”Freeland never mentioned Trump by name.But she evoked the great Republicans who came before him — from Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg’s Address to Ronald Reagan’s 1989 “City on the Hill” farewell speech where he envisioned a country “built on rocks stronger than oceans, wind-swept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace.”She won applause when she said, “preserving Lincoln’s vision” means fighting back against those who try to hijack democracy.“Facts matter. Truth matters. Competence and honesty, among elected leaders and in our public service, matter.”The speech followed the closed-door Senate foreign relations meeting, where the same authoritarian threats were discussed. So too, were the current U.S. metals tariffs on Canada, Mexico, Europe and Japan.“The Section 232 action — which is, let me remind people, a national security consideration — is frankly absurd,” Freeland said on Capitol Hill after the meeting.“That action is also illegal under the WTO and NAFTA rules.”The majority of U.S. senators agree with that view, said the committee’s Republican chair, Sen. Bob Corker.“I do think it’s an abuse of presidential authority to use the 232 waiver, and I’ve tried to pass a piece of legislation on the floor to counter that,” Corker said after the meeting with Freeland.He said he is trying to gather support for legislation that would give U.S. Congress, not the president, the authority to impose tariffs under the national security clause of U.S. trade law.Corker isn’t seeking re-election in this fall’s U.S. midterm elections and has railed against his fellow senators who are headed to the polls and worried about their electoral success for not standing up to Trump publicly.Corker said there’s no question Trump has damaged relations with Canada, but he hoped cooler heads would prevail.“Canada is not a country that we have trade issues with,” he said.Canada and its allies plan to impose retaliatory duties by the end of the month on a broad range of consumer goods. The Trudeau government has proposed a $16.6-billion tariff package, in retaliation for the Trump administration’s decision to impose 25 per cent import duties on steel and 10 per cent on aluminum.Freeland said Canada was responding in sorrow rather than anger but that the government would respond dollar-for-dollar to the U.S. tariffs.Finance Minister Bill Morneau was in Washington to join Freeland for her award ceremony.Earlier, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale told the Fox News business show “Varney @ Co.” that despite the dispute over the tariffs Canada still wants to make a deal to resolve the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.On Thursday, Freeland is expected to meet U.S. trade czar Robert Lighthizer in an effort to keep the NAFTA renegotiation on the rails.last_img read more

Toronto real estate board calls on Ottawa to revisit mortgage stress test

TORONTO — Canada’s largest real estate board is calling on Ottawa to revisit whether a stricter mortgage stress test introduced last year is still needed, arguing that the policy has negatively impacted the economy and Toronto’s once red-hot housing market.“While we saw buyers return to the market in the second half of 2018, we have to have an honest discussion on whether or not today’s homebuyers are being stress tested against rates that are realistic,” said John DiMichele, chief executive of the Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) in a statement Wednesday.“Home sales in the GTA, and Canada more broadly, play a huge role in economic growth, job creation and government revenues every year. Looking through this lens, policymakers need to be aware of unintended consequences the stress test could have on the housing market and broader economy.” Mortgage growth, the bread and butter of Canadian banks, has shrunk to 17-year low OSFI under pressure by banks, industry lobbyists to ease mortgage stress test: sources Why the government should rethink the mortgage stress test Stress tests were introduced in 2018 to cool real estate markets such as Toronto and Vancouver, and have limited the ability for some to qualify for mortgages.TREB, which represents more than 52,000 real estate agents across the region, says potential homebuyers who moved to the sidelines when the mortgage stress test came into effect will likely re-evaluate their financial qualifications and try to enter the market this year.It notes that the stress test, which is mandated through the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OFSI) has resulted in homebuyers having to qualify for monthly mortgage payments nearly $700 more than what they would actually pay.“In order to account for the higher qualification standard, intending home buyers have adjusted their preferences, including the type of home they intend on purchasing,” said the report, resulting in the increased popularity of condos and townhouses over detached homes.Despite these challenges, the board forecasts in its annual outlook that it expects to see a “moderate improvement” in sales and selling price this year in Toronto’s real estate market but says it doesn’t anticipate to hit the record levels seen in previous years.The board says increased buying intentions will be helped by population growth, low unemployment rates and lower fixed-rate mortgage rates this year.The outlook forecasts that 83,000 sales will be reported through the board’s Multiple Listing Service (MLS) system in 2019, up 7.2 per cent from 77,375 sales recorded in 2018.TREB expects the average selling price for the year in Toronto and the Greater Toronto Area will increase to $820,000 — close to the peak reached in 2017 — and up from an average of $787,195 in 2018.Much of that price growth will be led by the hot condominium market as homebuyers look for more affordable housing options, while the board anticipates the price growth for detached properties to be below the average growth rate for the total market.Meanwhile, the board expects new listings will remain flat this year after the figure pulled back in 2018 to sit between 155,000 and 156,000.The report also cautions that the rental market in Toronto and the surrounding area will remain “tight” this year.“The supply of rental units could continue to be problematic in 2019,” it warned.The board also reported Wednesday that home sales in Toronto and the surrounding area saw a small uptick in January, a sign that the real estate market in Canada’s largest city remains stable.In a separate report, TREB says there were 4,009 home sales recorded in January, up 0.6 per cent compared with January 2018. On a seasonally adjusted basis, sales were up by 3.4 per cent versus December 2018.The board says the average selling price for all property types was $748,328 last month, an increase of 1.7 per cent from the same month a year ago. TREB reports that the more affordable condo segment led the price growth, up by 7.9 per cent in January.Semi-detached and townhouse properties also saw increases, while the price of detached homes fell by 2.8 per cent in January year-over-year.The board says the total number of new listings were up, climbing 10.5 per cent to 9,456 listings last month. read more

Amid steady rise in rhino poaching and elephant killings UN urges action

Through the new resolution, the Assembly expressed serious concern over the steady rise in the level of rhino poaching and the alarmingly high levels of killings of elephants in Africa, which threaten those species with local extinction and, in some cases, with global extinction.“Illegal wildlife trafficking not only threatens species and ecosystems; it affects the livelihoods of local communities and diminishes touristic attractions. It compromises efforts towards poverty eradication and the achievement of sustainable development,” said Assembly President Sam Kutesa in remarks read by Vice-President Denis Antoine.Adopting a consensus text resolution, the 193-Member body encouraged Governments to adopt effective measures to prevent and counter the serious problem of crimes such as illicit trafficking in wildlife and wildlife products, including flora and fauna and poaching.The resolution suggests “strengthening the legislation necessary for the prevention, investigation and prosecution of such illegal trade, as well as strengthening enforcement and criminal justice responses, acknowledging that the International Consortium on Combating Wildlife Crime can provide valuable technical assistance in this regard.”The General Assembly also calls upon Member States to make illicit trafficking in protected species of wild fauna and flora involving organized criminal groups a “serious crime.”Member States are equally encouraged to harmonize their judicial, legal and administrative regulations to support the exchange of evidence, as well as to establish “national-level inter-agency wildlife crime task forces.”“The adoption of this resolution today and its effective implementation will be crucial in our collective efforts to combat illicit trafficking in wildlife worldwide,” adds the President’s statement. read more

GIW rubber parts help extend pump life in frac sand mining

first_imgGIW Industries has announced the success of a GIW pumping solution that doubled the lifespan of wear parts in the mining operations of a major frac sand producer in the Midwest. The highly-abrasive frac sand mining process causes extreme wear, and pump parts typically need replacement every two years. However, with installation of GIW’s innovative rubber-coated parts, wear life of the pump’s wet-end parts was extended to 3.75 years, when the parts were replaced during scheduled maintenance.“The parts could have lasted four years,” says Barney Johnson, Director of Sales with ISCO Industries, a distributor of GIW pumps. ISCO oversaw the installation and maintenance of the frac sand producer’s pumps and witnessed the parts’ success firsthand. The hydraulic fracturing process produces petroleum fluids such as oil, natural gas, and natural liquid gas by extracting the material from rock units that lack adequate pore space for fluid movement. Frac sand is used in the process to open that space so the product can flow properly.Frac sand mining works pumps hard, 24/7, 300 days a year. Most frac sand, made of high purity sandstone, is difficult to pump because of the constitution of the slurry – which can be composed of up to 45% solids.The high-density frac sand particles constantly churn on metal pipes and pump impellers and on suction liners, quickly eroding the parts. Producers find this wear is a constant problem and leads to frequent maintenance and replacement of components, ultimately reducing operating efficiency.GIW Aftermarket Sales Representative and Region Manager Angela Bryant explains: “Sand causes the highest wear rates, especially at solids properties less than one-half inch – fine abrasive slurries. In these applications, elastomers such as rubber tend to wear better.” GIW’s rubber-coated parts successfully extend wear life by decreasing metal erosion during mineral processing. Sand particles bounce off the rubber surfaces rather than sliding against the metal, which can grind down the surface more quickly. “Rubber parts, when properly applied, can outlast metal parts three or even four to one,” says Johnson. Making the switch to rubber reduces the frequency of parts replacement, decreasing the need to halt operations during critical production times.“The partnership of GIW and ISCO in the aggregate industry ensured proper maintenance for these parts and increased longevity of pumping operations for the Midwest frac sand producer. The collaboration between these companies, and the open paths of communication they keep, are helping frac sand mining companies achieve better efficiency in their production.”last_img read more

Sergio Ramos stays for Qatar 2022

first_imgAfter the chocking Spain elimination by Russia, on Sunday, Sergio Ramos is already looking at his side’s future, more specifically Qatar 2022.Spain was one of the favorites sides to win the 2018 World Cup, but with the unexpected defeat, last Sunday, against Russia, La Roja and Sergio Ramos, as he promised, have to wait four more years to pursue the title again.Sergio Ramos, Real MadridZidane reveals Sergio Ramos injury concern for Real Madrid Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane has put Sergio Ramos’ availability for Real Madrid’s trip to Sevilla next weekend in doubt after withdrawing him against Levante.This was the last World Cup for a lot of Spain’s key players, like Andrés Iniesta, Gerard Piqué and, probably, Pep Reina and David Silva. But that’s not the case for captain Sergio Ramos, who vowed he’ll be competing in the tournament in Qatar, in 2022, even though he’ll be 36 years old.“This team has a very good youth system, players with a lot of personality. I would like to keep going many more years. I am leaving this World Cup with a terrible pain.

Vancouver envisions rules for collective pot gardens

first_img? Who: Vancouver City Council.? What: Public hearing on an ordinance to restrict collective medical marijuana gardens to areas zoned for heavy or light industry.? When: 7 p.m. Dec. 3.? Where: City Hall, 415 W. 6th Street.The Vancouver City Council tentatively agreed last week to consider restricting collective medical marijuana gardens to areas zoned for heavy and light industry.The council will do a first reading of the ordinance Monday and can send it on to a public hearing, 7 p.m. Dec. 3 at City Hall, 415 W. Sixth St.During a workshop on Nov. 19, councilors asked why the proposed ordinance was so restrictive. In addition to being in heavy or light industrial areas, gardens would have to be at least 1,000 feet from schools, community centers, public parks, licensed day-care facilities and other collective gardens.As one councilor asked, “Are there any spaces left?”Heavy industrial and light industrial zones include areas such as the Port of Vancouver, Columbia Business Center and Columbia Tech business park.Community and Economic Development Director Chad Eiken said he felt the ordinance struck a balance between allowing them everywhere and not allowing them anywhere, approaches taken by other jurisdictions in the state with mixed results.Councilors asked City Attorney Ted Gathe how the approval of Initiative 502 will affect medical marijuana use, and he said that remains to be seen.I-502 addressed recreational use, Gathe said, as it decriminalized the possession of up to 1 ounce of marijuana for adults 21 and older. The law changes Dec. 6, but the state has a year to establish guidelines for growing, processing and selling it. The state has also been waiting to see if the federal government plans to intervene.last_img read more

first_img News | Radiation Oncology | February 01, 2018 ​ITN Celebrates World Cancer Day 2018 World Cancer Day takes place annually on Feb. read more Related Content September 17, 2008 – A multicenter trial testing intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT) for patients with early stage oropharyngeal cancer showed a reduction in long-term salivary toxicity, while achieving good tumor control, according to new research from the Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) that will be presented at the American Society for Therapeutic Radiology and Oncology (ASTRO) 50th Annual Meeting in Boston. RTOG, an NCI-funded national clinical trials group, is a clinical research component of the American College of Radiology (ACR), launched its phase I/II trial, RTOG 0022, to determine whether standardized dose and target definitions for IMRT could be accomplished in a multicenter setting. A total of 69 patients were entered on study from February 2001 through January 2005 from 14 academic and community institutions in the United States and Canada. A two-year local-regional control rate of 91 percent and a 49 percent rate of acute salivary gland toxicity (Grade ≥ 2) was reported by investigators compared with 80 and 84 percent in the same patient population from the RTOG database. The rate of salivary gland toxicity dropped to 23% at one year and 13 percent at two years. Evaluable patients who, at central review of their treatment plan, where found to have a major variation in their radiotherapy treatment plan had a significantly higher rate of local-regional failure than patients who were treated according to protocol (50 vs. 6 percent). “This study was the work of many physicians and physicists to establish the rules for IMRT doses and quality assurance, at a time, 1999-2000, when IMRT was in its infancy and very few institutions started treating patients with it,” related Avraham Eisbruch, M.D., lead author and study chair from the University of Michigan Health Systems, Ann Arbor, MI.All institutions participating in the trial were pre-approved for IMRT by the Image-guided Therapy QA Center (ITC) at Washington University in St. Louis.For more information: www.rtog.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) | July 05, 2017 Varian Receives FDA 510k Clearance for Halcyon Treatment System Varian Medical Systems has received U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) clearance for the Halcyon system,… read more News | Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) | October 31, 2018 Hypofractionated Radiation Provides Same Prostate Cancer Outcomes as Conventional Radiation An analysis led by researchers at Philadelphia’s Fox Chase Cancer Center found treating localized prostate cancer with… read more Technology | Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) | April 24, 2019 Accuray Launches Synchrony Motion Tracking and Correction Technology for Radixact System Accuray announced the launch of its Synchrony motion tracking and correction technology to be used with the Radixact… read more News | Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) | October 25, 2017 UZ Leuven Treats First European Patient on Varian Halcyon Cancer Treatment System Varian recently announced an 80-year-old male with head and neck cancer became the first patient in Europe to be… read more News | Radiation Therapy | March 26, 2018 Women Report Fewer Adverse Side Effects From Partial or Reduced Breast Radiotherapy March 26, 2018 — Radiotherapy treatment… read more News | Proton Therapy | July 30, 2018 IBA Completes Installation of Two Proteus One Proton Therapy Systems in Japan IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.) announced that they completed the first two installations of the Proteus One proton… read more News | Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) | September 29, 2016 Cervical and Endometrial Cancer Patients Report Fewer Side Effects with IMRT Patients with cervical and endometrial cancer have fewer gastrointestinal and genitourinary side effects and experience… read more News | Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) | July 03, 2017 First New York Metropolitan Hospital Treats Cancer Patients With Accuray Radixact System Accuray Inc. and Montefiore Einstein Center for Cancer Care (MECCC), part of the Montefiore Health System (MHS),… read more News | Intensity Modulated Radiation Therapy (IMRT) | June 20, 2017 IUCT Oncopole Installs First Radixact Radiotherapy System in France Accuray Inc. announced that the University Cancer Institute of Toulouse Oncopole (IUCT Oncopole) in Toulouse, France,… read more News | September 16, 2008 Toxicity Found in Patients Treated with IMRT for Oropharyngeal Cancer last_img read more

Derrick Hall satisfied with Dbacks buying and se

first_img Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling Abraham has never played in a Super Bowl and has seen action in only eight playoff games since entering the league in 2000. He’s not letting that or his age deter him from setting lofty personal goals for the season.“I’m shooting for at least 20 (sacks). I always shoot high,” he said. “Shoot high, you might hit low, but at least you shoot high. Don’t bowl, you’ve got to shoot a basket. Shoot high, don’t bowl.”Between Abraham’s projections and all the Super Bowl talk permeating through the team’s facility, shooting high doesn’t seem to be a problem for the 2014 Cardinals. – / 21 Over the season’s last ten games, the five-time Pro Bowler notched 11.5 sacks, helping the Cardinals to a 10-win campaign for just the second time since moving to the Valley in 1988.Now 36, the question persists: Is Abraham ready to be an every-down defensive player once again?“Damn skippy,” the veteran exclaimed following an organized team activity (OTA) Tuesday in Tempe. “I’m glad they finally let me do it. I’m definitely ready for it and that’s why I’m resting now (he didn’t participate Tuesday). I’m not going to put everything on the field now and they say ‘oh John, you’re only out there for 50 percent of the plays.’“Everybody knows how I play, I don’t like to come off the field. Even when I played for Atlanta, it was tough to come off the field.”With the way Abraham produced for one of the league’s best defenses in the second half of last year, head coach Bruce Arians and defensive coordinator Todd Bowles might not want him off the field in 2014. “It’s going to be a fun year,” Abraham said. “Super Bowl in Arizona — 49 is going to be a nice little number for us this year, so hopefully we can get there and be the first team to do it and win one, because I’m getting up in age.” John Abraham thought 2012 might have been it for him in the NFL. After registering 10 sacks for the Atlanta Falcons, the team cut him in March. He remained unemployed until July, when Arizona Cardinals general manager Steve Keim inked the prolific pass rusher to a two-year deal on the eve of training camp.Abraham was a situational player at the beginning of the season, and struggled mightily in his new role, failing to register a sack in the first six games. But injuries to outside linebackers Lorenzo Alexander, Sam Acho and Alex Okafor opened up more time for Abraham, and he thrived.
