27 August 2008The Security Council’s “increasingly complex responsibilities in the maintenance of international peace and security” means it is vital that the 15-member panel continue to try to improve its working methods, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today. Addressing an open debate in the Council on the issue, Mr. Ban said the increased responsibilities are occurring as the wider UN faces a surge in demand for its conflict prevention, peacekeeping and peacebuilding activities.“This makes it essential for the Council to keep addressing issues relating to its working methods, including by implementing the measures set out in the note of the President of the Council two years ago,” he said.“These measures are a key step in making the United Nations more efficient, effective and accountable in the face of a growing array of new challenges.”Commending the “considerable progress” made so far by the Council, Mr. Ban said the UN Secretariat has also taken steps to improve its working methods, such as those about enhancing the content and timeliness of the Secretary-General’s regular reports to the Council on various issues.He also pledged to strengthen cooperation between the Secretariat and the Security Council.“I appreciate that the members of the Council are committed to interacting with the wider United Nations membership through greater transparency, openness in decision-making and inclusiveness. I consider this pivotal to the way the Council works and is perceived by the international community.”
Problems of “opacity and complexity” are at the heart of the crisis, UNCTAD Secretary-General Supachai Panitchpakdi told a working group on accounting and reporting standards that is currently meeting in Geneva. He added that it may be necessary to introduce amendments to relevant accounting and reporting standards to cope with the crisis, which is “spreading through international financial markets like a pandemic.”Such a process “must happen in a fair and transparent way” and should include the participation of developing countries. “The crisis will not only be felt on Wall Street, or even High Street, but – perhaps most painfully – on the muddy, unpaved pathways of the developing world,” he stated.He noted that the current crisis originated in United States sub-prime mortgages that were packaged into mortgaged-backed securities and sold to investors around the world. “It was the inscrutable nature of these products that ultimately set off the current wave of financial unrest, with devastating effects.” The UN has already revised its projections for world economic growth downward by about 2 per cent for 2009, and “this may still be optimistic,” he stated.Mr. Supachai noted that the damage from the current crisis is likely to include liquidity problems for developing country banks, stock-market panics spreading to emerging markets, a global slowdown in demand that will hurt the exports of the world’s poorer nations, and possible reductions in aid to poor countries as donor nations give priority to bail-out packages for their own economies. But even amid the crisis, it is crucial to continue efforts to improve well-being and secure stable economic progress in the developing world, he told the group.“We have to work together to ensure that we get back on track to achieve the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs),” he stressed, referring to the global anti-poverty targets world leaders have pledged to achieve by 2015. 5 November 2008The head of the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) today called for revising accounting and reporting standards to boost investor confidence amid the current global financial crisis, which he warned is spreading like a “pandemic.”
29 December 2009The number of Afghan refugees trickling home from Iran and Pakistan plummeted this year, with the United Nations refugee agency pinning the blame for the low number of returns on insecurity, limited economic opportunities and political insecurity in the wake of August’s national polls. According to the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR), some 54,000 Afghans returned to their home country this year, just one-fifth the number that returned in 2008.The majority of the returnees were from Pakistan, while some 5,000 repatriated from Iran and another 200 from non-neighbouring countries. About 1.8 million Afghans refugees returned from Pakistan and Iran immediately after the fall of the Taliban in 2002, as compared with 278,000 who returned in 2008. In an update, UNHCR noted that the upsurge in violence in the country since 2006 has rekindled refugees’ concerns, not only about their security and the political stability of their country, but the viability of supporting their families in their homeland under current conditions.“The gap between the living conditions and economic opportunities in Afghanistan and the neighbouring countries is considerable,” the agency said.It also pointed out that the majority of Afghans registered in Pakistan and Iran have lived in exile for more than a quarter of a century since the Soviet invasion in 1979, and that half of them have never lived in Afghanistan. At this time, some 1.7 million registered Afghans continue to live in Pakistan and some 935,000 remain in Iran. Since 2002, around 5 million Afghan refugees have decided to return, swelling the overall population in Afghanistan by 20 per cent. UNHCR plans to build a further 10,000 housing units for returnees next year, bring the total number the agency has helped erect to nearly 200,000 since 2002.

THE MAN DESCRIBED by Barack Obama as his “mind reader”, Jon Favreau, will receive an honorary fellowship from a UCD society later today.Favreau, who worked as Obama’s chief speechwriter on both his 2008 and 2012 election campaigns, will be given the honorary fellowship by the Literary and Historical Society.Favreau was just 23 when he joined Obama’s staff while the future president was still a US senator and enjoyed a meteoric rise, serving as Head of Speechwriting at the White House during Obama’s first term.He left in March of last year to set up a consultancy group, Fenway Strategies, with former Obama spokesman Tommy Vietor. Favreau has previously featured among TIME magazine’s ’100 Most Influential People in the World’.Speaking at the time of his departure last year, Obama said of Favreau: “He has become a friend and a collaborator on virtually every major speech I’ve given in the Senate, on the campaign trail and in the White House.”Favreau is due to speak to the student society this afternoon at UCD with details of the event available on this Facebook page.Read: “I finished the pint, so if anybody asks!” – a behind the scenes look at Obama’s Ireland visitMinute by minute: A timeline of Obama’s visit to Ireland
Three days after unidentified attackers opened fire on the headquarters of Greece’s governing New Democracy party, conservative and left-wing officials clashed again Wednesday over the issue of politically motivated violence.Giorgos Mouroutis, a spokesman for ND, fired back at Panos Skourletis a day after main opposition SYRIZA’s spokesman spoke of Prime Minister Antonis Samaras having some “far-right aides”. Skourletis made particular mention of Failos Kranidiotis and Chrysanthos Lazaridis.“When Chrysanthos was thrown into prison by the junta, Skourletis was hiding behind his mother’s skirts,” Mouroutis said on Twitter Wednesday.Government spokesman Simos Kedikoglou attacked SYRIZA officials for allegedly fueling political tension.“[SYRIZA chief Alexis Tsipras] must first of all bring to heel the anarchist deputy that he still has in his fold, and the cadres and youth party members who brag about the sticks and masks that they keep in their houses,” he said.The statement appeared to be a reference to SYRIZA MP Vangelis Diamantopoulos, who has come under fire after publicly slamming the recent wave of squat raids.Meanwhile, Tsipras Wednesday met with President Karolos Papoulias at the Presidential Palace to brief him on his recent meetings with senior German officials in Berlin, particularly German Finance Minister Wolfgang Schaeuble. On Monday the Greek opposition leader was warned that there is no alternative to Greece’s fiscal adjustment but SYRIZA officials hope to have scored some political points after Tsipras raised the issues of World War II loans and the Siemens bribery scandal.“A government that questions the inevitability of the memorandum can be victorious,” he said after meeting with Papoulias.Tsipras Wednesday also met with US Ambassador Daniel B. Smith ahead of his visit to the United States later this month.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram

Prothom Alo File PhotoThe number of voters increases in the elections which are held in free, fair and peaceful manner, results of previous polls show.Polls observers said that the elections under the caretaker governments become fair. The voters feel encouraged to go to polling stations in a competitive election, they said adding the turnout of female voters also goes up if the security is ensured.“People go to polling stations and cast their votes if elections become meaningful,” former caretaker government adviser Hossain Zillur Rahman told Prothom Alo.The 11th parliamentary election will be held under the ruling Awami League. Most of the political parties have decided to contest the polls on 30 December. Currently there are over 104 million voters. What would be the turnout cannot be predicted now.According to statistics of a number of previous polls, the highest number of votes was casted during the caretaker governments. However, there is an exception in 1991 when 55 per cent votes were casted.The record shows the turnout of voters was high in the ninth parliamentary election in 2008. A total of 87 per cent vote was casted.In the eighth election of 2001, a total of 75 per cent vote was casted and the BNP-Jamaat-e-Islami alliance won the election and formed the government.The seventh parliament election was held in June of 1996 under a caretaker government. The turnout of voters was 76 per cent. Awami League went to power, then.After the fall of military ruler HM Ershad, a neutral caretaker government was formed and the fifth parliamentary election was held in 1991. The turnout of voters was 55 per cent and BNP ascended to power.Statistics show the turnout falls in one-sided and controversial elections. During the tenure of Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP), the sixth parliamentary election was held on 15 February, 1996. Major political parties including Awami League boycotted the election. Voter turnout was only 21 per cent.The turnout of voters was low in the 5 January election during the tenure of Awami League. Main political parties including BNP boycotted the election. Only 19 per cent vote was casted.Hossain Zillur said it is clear that these two elections were not meaningful.This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Rabiul Islam
When gay figure skater Adam Rippon challenged the Vice President’s concerning stances on LGBT equality, Pence put out a statement suggesting that the athlete had misled the public.And freestyle skier Gus Kenworthy, who has been at the forefront of the US delegation’s publicity campaign, also says that Pence’s presence will send a negative message.Speaking on The Ellen DeGeneres Show this week, Kenworthy said Pence was a “bad fit” to lead the delegation.He said: “It just seems such a strange choice for me, because I feel like we’re in 2018, we’re going into the Olympics – myself and Adam Rippon are the first two openly gay males competing in the [Winter] Olympics, and it’s just incredible to see how times of changed, because of people like you and athletes of the past.“So many people have paved the way, but then to have someone leading the delegation that’s directly attacked the LGBT community, and [is part of] a cabinet in general that stands against us and has tried to do things to set us back.“It just seems like a bad fit, and I feel like the Olympics is all about inclusion and people coming together, and it seems like it’s not really doing that.”[embedded content]Kenworthy added he was looking forward to attending the games as an openly gay athlete – having been in the closet at the last Winter OlympicsHe said: “I’m looking forward to everything. It’s going to be a different experience to last time around because I’m not in the closet, and I’m excited to soak it up.“It might be my last Olympics, so I just want to meet as many athletes as I can, get to enjoy the opening and closing ceremonies, and hopefully ski the best I possibly can.“And apparently there’s Karaoke everywhere in Korea, and I live for Karaoke.”Kenworthy previously told USA Today that Pence’s presence will send a negative message.He said: “I actually found out about [Pence attending] from Adam Rippon… I feel the same way as him.“I think it’s not the person I would have expected, and I think it sends mixed messages because this is the first time we’re seeing out U.S. Olympic athletes competing in the Winter Olympics, and then we have someone leading the delegation that doesn’t support that, and doesn’t support the LGBT community, and has spoken against it. I think it doesn’t send the right message.“It’s unfortunate, but it is what it is.”Skier Gus Kenworthy attends the 100 Days Out 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics Celebration – Team USA in Times Square on November 1, 2017 in New York City. (Photo by Mike Stobe/Getty Images for USOC)Kenworthy came out in 2015 – a year on from competing at the Winter Olympics in Russia.As such, he and Rippon will this year among the first openly gay male athletes to represent the US at a Winter Olympic games.Speaking about LGBT representation, Kenworthy added: ” I think it’s so important. And not even just LGBT athletes, but just the LGBT community in general has been underrepresented for so many years..“It’s new to have LGBT representation in that type of way, so I think that’s really important. It helps to be someone that any closeted young athlete, or just person in general can look up to and see someone out in their field and being successful and living their life and having good things happen for them and not having a bad experience.”Gus Kenworthy of the United States competes in the Freestyle Skiing Men’s Ski Slopestyle Qualification during day six of the Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics at Rosa Khutor Extreme Park on February 13, 2014 in Sochi, Russia. (Photo by Cameron Spencer/Getty Images)He added of the games in PyeongChang: “The fact that I am out, I think it’s going to warrant me having a better time in Korea, and really getting to experience it.“When you’re in the closet, you can’t enjoy anything quite as much. I don’t think I had the Olympics experience I was hoping for, and now that I’m out, I’m going to really take it all in and have such a better time.”A hardline evangelical who has not supported a single LGBT reform across nearly two decades in politics, VP Pence has one of the worst records on equality of any President or Vice President in recent memory. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) Winter Olympics 2018: Adam Rippon nailed his debut Olympic performanceWATCH: Gus Kenworthy discusses posing naked on a mountainWinter Olympics 2018: Fox News pulls column complaining about gay and black athletesPINK NEWS- Gay Olympian Gus Kenworthy has hit out at Vice President Mike Pence again, attacking his presence at the Winter Olympics.Ahead of his trip to South Korea this month as head of the Winter Olympic delegation, Pence has been making enemies among the LGBT athletes set to represent the US. Pence previously suggested that HIV prevention funding be drained in order to fund state-sponsored ‘gay cure’ therapy.U.S. Vice President Mike Pence (Photo by Sara D. Davis/Getty Images)On a 2000 Congressional campaign website, he wrote: “Congress should support the reauthorization of the [HIV funding] Ryan White Care Act only after completion of an audit to ensure that federal dollars were no longer being given to organisations that celebrate and encourage the types of behaviours that facilitate the spreading of the HIV virus. Resources should be directed toward those institutions which provide assistance to those seeking to change their sexual behaviour.”While serving as Governor of Indiana, Pence stirred up international outrage in 2015 when he signed Indiana’s controversial ‘Religious Freedom Restoration Act’, giving businesses the right to discriminate against gay people on the grounds of religion.Pence claimed the law was intended to “protect” organisations from having to provide services for same-sex weddings, saying: “I support the freedom of religion for every Hoosier [Indiana citizen] of every faith.“The Constitution of the United States and the Indiana Constitution both provide strong recognition of the freedom of religion but today, many people of faith feel their religious liberty is under attack.”(Getty)He appeared unable to answer when asked whether it should be legal to fire people because of their sexuality.In a clip, Pence was asked: “Yes or no: do you believe gay and transgender people should be able to be fired from their jobs just for that reason only?”After an awkward ten-second silence, Pence attempted to stall, responding: “It’s a great privilege to be your Governor.”Fudging a response, he said: “My position as I expressed in the state of the State address is that we are a state with a constitution, and as you know… that constitution has very strong safeguards for freedom of conscience and freedom of religion.”Donald Trump and Mike Pence (Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)During the Presidential campaign, Pence backed plans to roll back Barack Obama’s executive protections on LGBT rights, so that “the transgender bathroom issue can be resolved with common sense at the local level”.He said: “This is such an example of an administration that seems to have… there’s no area of our lives too small for them to want to regulate, no aspect of our constitution too large for them to ignore.“Donald Trump and I both believe these questions can be resolved with common sense at the local level.”“These issues are resolved in the state of Indiana whenever they come up, and they should be resolved, for the safety and well-being of our children first and foremost, their privacy and rights, and with common sense. Donald Trump and I simply believe all of these issues are best resolved at the state level, by communities.”He added: “Washington has no business intruding on the operation of our local schools. It’s just one more example of the heavy hand of this administration, and Donald Trump and I will stand by that common-sense people that when it comes to our kids, and the operation of our schools, those decisions should be made at the local level.“Washington DC has no business imposing its bill and its values on communities around the nation.”(Photo by Chip Somodevilla/Getty Images)Decades of proof have not stopped Pence from attempting to rewrite his deeply anti-LGBT record, however.He abruptly started denying his support for gay cure therapy in December 2016, one month before he was sworn in as Vice President – despite never once trying to correct public reports about his well-known views in the 16 years beforehand.Share this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading…

PicomCloud is proficient in imaging, reporting and workflow management for radiology, cardiology, orthopedics, obstetrics, mammography and many other clinical settings.The system is well-suited in the market where IT support is limited or cost prohibitive. PicomCloud account holders are relieved of the costly outlay and ongoing support costs of server hardware, data storage and network infrastructure required for a traditional PACS. The combination of ever-expanding network bandwidth, abundant processing power and relatively inexpensive storage, has created an environment where PACS buyers are more widely comfortable with and reliant upon software-as-a-service.The system simplifies deployment for customers, offers instant availability to the latest software revisions and virtually eliminates up-front costs.The PicomCloud provides professional utilities to automate the acquisition of exams to the cloud, delivers rich image visualization and sophisticated reporting, along with report delivery tools, primary care provider access and online account management.For more information: www.scimage.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content News | PACS | August 08, 2019 NetDirector Launches Cloud-based PDF to DICOM Conversion Service NetDirector, a cloud-based data exchange and integration platform, has diversified their radiology automation options… read more Technology | July 20, 2011 ScImage Debuts Cloud PACS With Traditional PACS Functionality Feature | Information Technology | June 27, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr Smart Algorithm Extracts Data from Radiology Reports Radiology reports may contain information essential to figuring out a patient’s condition. read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more News | Enterprise Imaging | July 29, 2019 Philips Announces 10-year Enterprise Informatics Agreement With Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire de Nancy Philips and Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire (CHRU) de Nancy, a leading academic hospital in the Grand Est… read more News | PACS | July 02, 2019 Laurel Bridge and 3M M*Modal Partner to Improve DICOM Structured Reporting July 2, 2019 — Laurel Bridge Software announced an expanded relationship with 3M M*Modal, a provider of clinical docu read more News | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | July 02, 2019 Konica Minolta Healthcare Partners With DiA Imaging Analysis for AI-based Cardiac Ultrasound Analysis DiA Imaging Analysis has partnered with Konica Minolta Healthcare Americas Inc. to expand analysis capabilities of… read more Technology | Cybersecurity | August 07, 2019 ScImage Introduces PICOM ModalityGuard for Cybersecurity ScImage Inc. is bridging the gap between security and functionality with the introduction of the PICOM ModalityGuard…. read more Technology | Enterprise Imaging | July 05, 2019 Hyland Healthcare Adds ImageNext Imaging Workflow Optimizer to Enterprise Imaging Suite Hyland Healthcare is launching ImageNext, a vendor-neutral imaging workflow optimizer that combines intelligent imaging… read more News | PACS | June 26, 2019 Mini-PACS Solution for Image Management and Workflow Optimization ImageGrid Mini is a feature-rich, reliable and cost-effective image management and workflow optimization solution, pr read more
News | August 29, 2014 Multi-Tasking Nanoparticle May Allow Both Targeted Imaging and Treatment of Some Cancers Versatile particles offer a wide variety of diagnostic and therapeutic applications August 29, 2014 — Kit Lam and colleagues from UC Davis and other institutions have created dynamic nanoparticles (NPs) that could provide an arsenal of applications to diagnose and treat cancer. Built on an easy-to-make polymer, these particles can be used as contrast agents to light up tumors for magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) scans or deliver chemo and other therapies to destroy tumors. In addition, the particles are biocompatible and have shown no toxicity. The study was published online in Nature Communications.Jessica Tucker, program director of drug and gene delivery and devices at the National Institute of Biomedical Imaging and Bioengineering, which is part of the National Institutes of Health, said the approach outlined in the study has the ability to combine both imaging and therapeutic applications in a single platform, which has been difficult to achieve, especially in an organic, and therefore biocompatible, vehicle.Though not the first nanoparticles, these may be the most versatile. Other particles are good at some tasks but not others. Non-organic particles, such as quantum dots or gold-based materials, work well as diagnostic tools but have safety issues. Organic probes are biocompatible and can deliver drugs but lack imaging or phototherapy applications.Built on a porphyrin/cholic acid polymer, the nanoparticles are simple to make and perform well in the body. Porphyrins are common organic compounds. Cholic acid is produced by the liver. The basic nanoparticles are 21 nanometers wide.To further stabilize the particles, the researchers added the amino acid cysteine (creating CNPs), which prevents them from prematurely releasing their therapeutic payload when exposed to blood proteins and other barriers. At 32 nanometers, CNPs are ideally sized to penetrate tumors, accumulating among cancer cells while sparing healthy tissue.In the study, the team tested the nanoparticles, both in vitro and in vivo, for a wide range of tasks. On the therapeutic side, CNPs effectively transported anti-cancer drugs, such as doxorubicin. Even when kept in blood for many hours, CNPs only released small amounts of the drug; however, when exposed to light or agents such as glutathione, they readily released their payloads. The ability to precisely control chemotherapy release inside tumors could greatly reduce toxicity. CNPs carrying doxorubicin provided excellent cancer control in animals, with minimal side effects.CNPs also can be configured to respond to light, producing singlet oxygen, reactive molecules that destroy tumor cells. They can also generate heat when hit with laser light. Significantly, CNPs can perform either task when exposed to a single wavelength of light.CNPs offer a number of advantages to enhance imaging. They readily chelate imaging agents and can remain in the body for long periods. In animal studies, CNPs congregated in tumors, making them easier to read on an MRI. Because CNPs accumulated in tumors, and not so much in normal tissue, they dramatically enhanced tumor contrast for MRI and may also be promising for PET-MRI scans.This versatility provides multiple options for clinicians, as they mix and match applications.For more information: www.ucdmc.ucdavis.edu/cancer FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Proton Therapy | August 08, 2019 MD Anderson to Expand Proton Therapy Center The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center unveiled plans to expand its Proton Therapy Center during a… read more 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 Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left).
