Mushers disagree on Iditarod’s new communication-device rule

first_img“Because it’s pointless,” Zappa sad. “My cellphone would be dead in two seconds in the cold, anyway. There’s no service on the trail. And it’s a really lame rule.”The change is to language in rule number 35, governing electronic devices. Communicators can be brought along and used, though not for any media purposes.Paul Gebhardt sits on the Iditarod’s board of directors and said he won’t be bringing any kind of phone.“I don’t like it, I got nobody I really want to talk to when I’m out there, just my dogs and me,” Gebhardt said. “That’s what I think the spirit of the race is about. I voted, personally, against the two-way communication device, and most of the mushers agree with me.”A lot of racers say the technology is not only cumbersome, but could prove a distraction. Norwegian Joar Ulsom thinks it also opens up the possibility of getting mentally derailed at a time when psychological fortitude is crucial.“People can send you text messages that you receive and you have no control (of) what they’re saying to you,” Ulsom said. “They could say a thing that’s gonna benefit me, or a thing that’s gonna mess up my day.”A team travels on the Iditarod trail to Manley Hot Springs.

Looser drilling rules bill advances in U.S. House

first_imgEnergy & Mining | Federal Government | Nation & WorldLooser drilling rules bill advances in U.S. HouseNovember 8, 2017 by Liz Ruskin, Alaska Public Media Share:Alaska Rep. Don Young. (File photo by Liz Ruskin/Alaska Public Media)A deregulation bill aimed at boosting energy production on federal lands cleared a U.S. House committee Wednesday.Known as the SECURE American Energy Act, H.R. 4239 would remove several limits on Arctic drilling, undoing former President Barack Obama’s decision to close off most Arctic waters to leasing.It allow would states to take over management of oil and gas development on federal land.States would do a better job, says U.S. Rep. Don Young, R-Alaska, because federal employees try to block development.“They don’t want to drill oil,” Young said in the House Committee on Natural Resources. “I wish they’d fess up to it. At least we’d know for sure where their loyalty lies. But I really believe if we don’t continue the way they do in Alaska and the Western states, we’ll fall back in that trap of be(ing) dependent on the Middle East countries.”Young also likes that the bill would share offshore revenues with coastal states.Alaska would get 37.5 percent of the proceeds from leasing and development in federal Arctic waters.Wilderness Society government relations director Katy Siddall said the bill is part of a broader “sell-out” campaign.“This is a bill that is par for the course in what we’re seeing out of, not just the House but the Senate and the administration, on trying to drill anywhere these guys can and hand-off our public lands to private interests,” Siddall said.Siddall said that if states take over as regulators on federal lands, then the public would lose transparency and opportunities to weigh in.One of the bill’s worst provisions, as Siddall sees it, is that it would scrap the 2016 safety rules for offshore Arctic drilling.“It’s already one of the most dangerous place to explore for oil and gas,” Siddall said. “And this just, one, it makes it easier to drill, and two, it makes it even more dangerous.”Young, on the other hand, maintains the Obama administration’s Arctic drilling regs make future exploration nearly impossible.The SECURE bill now moves to the House floor. It is sponsored by House Majority Whip Steve Scalise, R-La. His leadership position makes it likely the bill will be brought up for a vote.Share this story:last_img read more

Health experts offer their support for — and skepticism of — the cancer moonshot

first_imgLet’s be honest. There’s not that much money in the moonshot. I just don’t think it is going to have that big an impact. We’ve already got a lot going on in cancer. More than 800 drugs are in cancer clinical trials. That’s really where we should be focused.Risa Lavizzo-Mourey, president and CEO of the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation:The cancer moonshot evokes a very positive time in American history, a time when we were able to harness our collective will and brainpower and resources.We have so much information that is not being harnessed. A lot of the progress will be accelerated by better sharing of information.One thing I hope the moonshot will address is the racial disparities that exist in cancer care: lack of access to insurance, which then leads to later diagnoses; the absence of screening; insurance that may prohibit some people from getting the most sophisticated diagnostic tests or treatments. In situations where you can remove some of those disparities, the outcomes are nearly identical, at least between blacks and whites.Eric Lander, president and founding director of the Broad Institute of MIT and Harvard:We aren’t going to be curing cancer in 10 years. But there’s nothing wrong with putting down ambitious markers and organizing our thinking together. The more we ramp up attention on something like cancer, the more creative we’re all going to get.Dawn Laguens, executive vice president and chief experience officer at Planned Parenthood:We need to go after cancer, which has devastated so many lives, so many families. What I would like more resources for — and what we have seen a push for — is the HPV vaccine, which can help prevent a variety of cancers in women and men.Robert Califf, commissioner of the US Food and Drug Administration:The FDA will play a huge role in the moonshot.Many of us believe that cancer is at an inflection point right now with the ability to target therapy using genomics and immunotherapy at the same time. The investment of not just money but also breaking down barriers to sharing of information could really make a difference.Joe Biden has the resilience and perseverance to talk to people, and has friends on both sides of the aisle. If a cancer moonshot is ever going to work, this would be the time to do it.When asked about the name cancer moonshot, Califf said “No comment” and walked away.Mark McClellan, professor and director of the Duke-Margolis Center for Health Policy at Duke University, and former FDA commissioner and administrator for the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services:Making progress on diseases like cancer is partly about discovery. More funding for basic research is important, but progress is also about development. Translating from basic science in the lab to reliable, safe, effective treatments is really hard. One thing I’ve noticed over the years with these big initiatives is that they tend to put the money into basic research, which is important, but there should be a complementary component in what I’d call development science, like setting up big data programs using existing systems of care. The FDA sees every day what goes wrong in development programs. It has programs like breakthrough therapy designation, which provide more resources for helping public and private organizations collaborate. So bring in the FDA and think about development, not just basic research. First OpinionHealth experts offer their support for — and skepticism of — the cancer moonshot Vice President Joe Biden speaks during a meeting of the Cancer Moonshot Task Force. Susan Walsh/AP STAT Ezekiel Emanuel, Vice Provost for Global Initiatives and chair of the Department of Medical Ethics and Health Policy at the University of Pennsylvania:There are four obvious things to do to improve the health of Americans. One, increase the tax on cigarettes. That’ll do more to bring down cancer than any moonshot because it will prevent cancer rather than spending a lot to treat it. Two, we need to get people to exercise more. Three, we need better diets and a tax on sugary beverages, such the one my adopted hometown of Philadelphia recently passed. We will see what the impact is, but it certainly isn’t going to hurt. Four, take some of the money you’d get from a cigarette or soda tax and invest it in home visits for poor women who are having babies. Every child who has a healthy start is a very huge return on investment; it improves their health and school performance.advertisement [email protected] center_img The National Cancer Moonshot Summit, to be held on Wednesday, is an effort by the White House to promote efforts championed by Vice President Joe Biden to find a cure for cancer. At the same time, dozens of associated regional conferences will take place around the country, bringing together scientists, patients, and health care experts.In advance of the summit, STAT reporters and editors interviewed various individuals in the worlds of science, medicine, and health for a sampling of opinion on Biden’s initiative. They range from skepticism to support.The interviews — some of them lengthy, others conducted on the run — were done at Spotlight Health, part of the Aspen Ideas Festival in Aspen, Colo.

Frustration over slow progress on new Portlaoise courthouse

first_img Pinterest Facebook The ongoing issue of the courthouse raised its head at the recent Portlaoise Municipal District meeting in Laois County Council as the elected representatives once again voiced their frustration over the antisocial behaviour outside the building on the town’s Main Street.A new courthouse is due to be built on a two-acre site close to Aldi on the new Southern Relief Road but councillors have asked for an update on that situation.Approval has been granted in principle for the new building with the Courts Service initially saying that work could begin on the site in 2021.The existing courthouse – which was built in the late 1700s – will be given to Laois County Council when it is vacated.The issue was raised at the July meeting and it was agreed that a letter be sent to the Irish Courts Service seeking clarification on where the project currently stands.But Simon Walton, Director of Services in Laois County Council, told the meeting that the letter was only sent in recent days.“We need to push this,” said Cllr Willie Aird. “There is a lot of dragging of heels on this and if we don’t drive it, it might never happen.“I’m watching every day and there is no progress. We’re not going to be fobbed off on this.” Electric Picnic Electric Picnic Cllrs Mary Sweeney and Caroline Dwane-Stanley spoke of the “intimidating” atmosphere on the street outside the courthouse.“It’s quite frightening and intimidating to see and listen to that behaviour,” said Cllr Sweeney. “We have to keep pushing for a new courthouse.”“It’s very intimidating,” agreed Cllr Dwane-Stanley. “Older people who come into town on a Thursday and Friday to do their shopping are avoiding Main Street and that’s not good.“There have been several incidents of melees and the sooner it goes out of there the better.”Cllr Noel Tuohy, who was familiar with the workings of the building on Main Street from his time as a prison officer, said “it’s not fit for purpose for staff or visitors”. He also referenced the atmosphere on the street, citing examples of people “spitting on the ground” as others walk by.Cllr Thomasina Connell, who has a solicitor’s practice across the road from it and is working in court a number of days every week, says the gatherings outside the court “are actually dangerous”.She said that court hearings are now staggered and there is an appointment for each case something she says is working well – but asked that there be “increased Garda staffing” to monitor the situation.“The staff are doing their best there and we have to be patient with the Courts Services staff as they are trying to keep things under control.”SEE ALSO – Check out more stories from the Portlaoise Municipal District here Facebook Twitter TAGSCaroline Dwane-StanleyLaois County CouncilMary SweeneyNoel TuohyPortlaoisePortlaoise CourthousePortlaoise Municipal DistrictThomasina ConnellWillie Aird Laois Councillor ‘amazed’ at Electric Picnic decision to apply for later date for 2021 festival News Frustration over slow progress on new Portlaoise courthousecenter_img By Steven Miller – 21st September 2020 WhatsApp Pinterest RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR Twitter Previous article‘Park and Stride’ encouraged to tackle Portlaoise school trafficNext articleIssue over speed limit preventing safety measures at Portlaoise GAA grounds Steven Millerhttp://www.laoistoday.ieSteven Miller is owner and managing editor of From Laois, Steven studied Journalism in DCU and has 14 years experience in the media, almost 10 of those in an editorial role.

Related news Share this article and your comments with peers on social media The respondents violated MFDA rules as part of a “widespread practice at the branch, which involved falsifying, fabricating or altering clients’ KYC information … in order to obtain investment loans to purchase mutual funds in client accounts,” the MFDA stated in the notice of hearing.The reps, who are no longer in the financial advisory industry, “engaged in these practices, without the knowledge or authorization of clients, in order to make it appear as though the clients satisfied WFG’s requirements regarding the use of leveraging and to increase the likelihood that the lenders would approve the investment loans,” the MFDA stated.The self-regulatory organization alleged that, between 2008 and 2014, the respondents falsified KYC information in order to obtain a total of 51 investment loans. As a result, the former reps violated suitability requirements. The MFDA also alleged that the respondents misled the regulator during its investigation.Several of the reps also were accused of failing to attend an interview with MFDA staff, and branch manager Attal Golzay was accused to supervisory failures.

Decent Work Agenda Global Imperative – PM

first_imgAdvertisements RelatedDecent Work Agenda Global Imperative – PM RelatedDecent Work Agenda Global Imperative – PM RelatedDecent Work Agenda Global Imperative – PMcenter_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Prime Minister Portia Simpson Miller has said that the International Labour Organisation’s (ILO) Decent Work Agenda has become an essential feature of strategies for balancing economic and social development, and is a global imperative. “Decent work for all is a great principle and a great ideal. It is essential to achieving social justice, prosperity and a better quality of life for all people everywhere,” Mrs. Simpson Miller stated. She was addressing the 96th Session of the International Labour Conference in Geneva, Switzerland today (June 12).The Prime Minister said that realisation of the Decent Work Agenda should begin with the clear conviction that people must be at the centre of national development and in order to achieve this, the agenda must embrace justice and equity.“It is my firm belief that these qualities must form the moral compass that guides our attitudes and actions. They must be reflected in labour relations, community development, public and private sector partnerships and relations with our global neighbours. However, for lasting success at the national level, the principles of justice and equity must also apply to international relations and rules,” she asserted.Mrs. Simpson Miller said international rules need to ensure that all countries, no matter how small, have economic and trade opportunities that are fair and just, as this will support decent work and stimulate development at the national level.She cited training, job creation and employability, sustainable business enterprises and social protection as critical imperatives for balancing economic and social development, within the context of the decent work agenda.“Unquestionably, education is the driving force for the transformation that must take place, if developing economies are to achieve global economic competitiveness and improve the quality of life for their people,” she stated.The Prime Minister added that such a programme of education, “must embrace technical and professional skills training that will prepare our people to do dignified and productive work locally, regionally and internationally. This is the path Jamaica has embarked on.” She told the conference that while transforming the education system, the Jamaican Government was giving priority to early childhood education. In the area of job creation and employability, she said economic activity must drive the creation of jobs, as “jobless growth is not a viable option.” Mrs. Simpson Miller said the government has placed economic growth with jobs at the heart of its economic plan and as a consequence, the country was experiencing the lowest rate of unemployment in recent history. “Under the theme: ‘Today’s Jamaica means business,’ we pursue financial investments that will make a significant contribution to poverty reduction, while providing a fair return on investments. We will ensure that these investments are in conformity with the decent work agenda. In Jamaica, we vigorously and consistently promote working conditions that are above the core labour standards,” she assured.The Prime Minister noted that another area of job opportunities for Jamaicans was migration, although Jamaica, like other developing countries, faced challenges with the free movement of skills. “While there are opportunities to be derived from migration, our countries also face the negative impacts. We must explore strategies such as bilateral agreements with host countries investing in the training of sufficient number of our people, so that they can recruit without leaving a skills deficit,” she said.Mrs. Simpson Miller noted that over the years, Jamaica has established successful bilateral programmes for farm workers and workers in the hospitality industry. “With this experience, similar initiatives should be considered for other categories of workers. Within this job creation and employability imperative, it is essential that special attention be given to the youth,” she said. One new aspect of the approach to youth employment in Jamaica was capitalizing on the abundance of talent and interests of the young people, she informed. “We intend to focus attention on generating job opportunities in the cultural and creative industries, which include music, sport and entertainment,” she pointed out.Mrs. Simpson Miller said the building of sustainable businesses were important for providing decent and productive work and that they also helped to generate the financial support needed for social development. “The reality in many developing countries is that the size of the labour force is outstripping growth of employment in the formal economy. As a result, the informal economy is accounting for a larger segment of the workforce. The informal economy, made up mainly of women and persons from disadvantaged groups, is to contribute to the decent work objectives,” she said.To do so, the Prime Minister said, greater emphasis and a sense of urgency must be directed at structuring this expanding area of economic activity into sustainable business enterprises. She cited last year’s decision to provide significant financial support to the micro, small and medium sized enterprises. “It is our intention that this initiative will serve as a catalyst for encouraging more private sector investment and participation in micro and small business enterprises,” she remarked.Meanwhile, Mrs. Simpson Miller pointed out that strategies for social protection must balance the needs for proper housing, health care and basic amenities, with an ability to respond to emergencies. “These emergencies include unpredictable shocks in the economy and natural disasters,” she said, noting the implementation of the Programme for Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH) in Jamaica.“It provides thousands of families with social protection benefits linked to education and health,” she explained. The Prime Minister also mentioned the recent removal of all health fees for persons under 18 years, who use hospitals and health facilities which fall under the Ministry of Health, and the implementation of low income housing programmes with special emphasis on the shelter needs of the urban poor and workers in the sugar and hospitality industries, as part of the social protection policy.Among the topics on the agenda for the conference, which ends on June 15, are: decent work, child labour in agriculture, work in the fishing sector, equality at work, forced labour, and sustainable enterprises.

Fiat Chrysler wins in court over Mahindra selling alleged Jeep copy

first_img COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS The case is In the Matter of Certain Motorized Vehicles and Components Thereof, 337-1132, U.S. International Trade Commission (Washington). Fiat Chrysler won its bid for an order to block U.S. imports of Mahindra & Mahindra’s Roxor off-road vehicle that it said copies the look of its iconic Jeep Wrangler, the International Trade Commission said in a notice posted on the agency’s website.The commission upheld, with modifications, a judge’s finding that Mahindra’s off-road vehicle is a copy of the Jeep. The Trump administration can veto the ban on public policy grounds, though that rarely happens.Fiat Chrysler claimed the Roxor is a “nearly identical copy” of its Jeep, particularly the “boxy body shape with flat-appearing vertical sides and rear body ending at about the same height as the hood.” Trade Judge Cameron Elliot in November found that the Roxor would infringe the trade dress of the Jeep as defined by six specific design elements, but not the registered trademarks for the Jeep’s front grille. He recommended that the commission block imports of the Roxor kits and components, saying Mahindra is purposefully trying to evoke the Jeep image, which would erode the value of the Wrangler.Both sides asked the commission to review the portion of the decision they lost.Mahindra, India’s largest maker of sport utility vehicles, makes the components in India and the Roxor is assembled at a plant in Michigan. It’s already hurting from a slowdown in India’s market for cars and trucks and reported no domestic sales in April because of the coronavirus pandemic. The U.S. market, the most popular in the world for off-road vehicles, could help it weather the pandemic.RELATED See More Videos Trending Videos RELATED TAGSJeepWranglerSUVNon-LuxuryNew VehiclesInstagramNon-Luxury The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever PlayThe Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car everPlay3 common new car problems (and how to prevent them) | Maintenance Advice | Driving.caPlayFinal 5 Minivan Contenders | Driving.caPlay2021 Volvo XC90 Recharge | Ministry of Interior Affairs | Driving.caPlayThe 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is a new take on Canada’s fave truck | Driving.caPlayBuying a used Toyota Tundra?
