Airlines regulations delaying transport of lifesaving medical isotopes UN meeting told

Some airlines, for example, have policies against carrying any radioactive material while a country’s regulatory controls may create bottlenecks, effectively blocking shipments, regulatory and industry officials told participants gathered for the week-long meeting at the Vienna headquarters of the UN International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA). “Radioactive material is very safely transported, based on standards developed by the IAEA which have been operating for 43 years,” the Agency’s Unit Head for Safety of Transport of Radioactive Materials Michael Wangler said.But Industry representatives are warning of a growing incidence of denials or delays in shipping such radioactive material as isotopes commonly used to diagnose heart attacks, sterilize medical equipment or treat cancer.“Hospitals and patients need the international shipments to arrive on time, especially if the isotope has a short shelf live,” said Paul Gray of Nordion, a company that produces the isotopes.For example, iodine (used to treat and diagnose thyroid cancer) has a very short half-life so it must be sent quickly by air. “If we get an order from a hospital in the afternoon, we´ll produce the isotope and arrange to fly it out that night,” he added. If the iodine misses the flight it becomes useless. If it gets on another then its use is more limited.“Around 70-80 million medical procedures are performed using isotopes each year,” he said, although the number of blocked or delayed shipments is not known.Routes in Europe, the Asia-Pacific region, and the Mediterranean are among those where denial and delays have occurred. There are instances where medical isotopes are forced to travel three times the direct distance. Part of the problem is that there are fewer carriers and fewer routes available than before.The commercial incentives for airlines to carry radioactive materials have diminished as the cost of additional regulatory controls has increased. For example, countries might have multiple levels of regulatory controls, such as requiring a dedicated storage area for radioactive materials, employing a radiation protection advisor or banning radioactive materials if animals are also on the flight.Participants include representatives from regulatory authorities, producers of radioactive sources, airlines, shippers and other transport operators, and international organizations. read more

Hokeys historic night gives OSU hockey split

Even with freshman forward Hokey Langan’s record-tying Friday night, the Ohio State women’s ice hockey team ended the weekend with a split against Bemidji State.Senior co-captain Rachel Davis said the Buckeyes’ first goal by Langan Friday caused a momentum shift where, “you could just see the other team sink back a little bit.”Langan’s first goal transpired with 1:26 left on the clock in the first period Friday. From a line change, Langan skated up the ice and received a crisp pass from sophomore forward Natalie Spooner. Langan wound up, shot and scored top shelf, sending the BSU goalie’s water bottle soaring into the air.Langan tied the OSU single-game records for most goals and points with four and five, respectively.Sophomore defenseman Kelly Wild scored the third goal of the night, while senior Raelyn LaRocque had three assists. Spooner and sophomore Laura McIntosh each had two assists on the night.The Buckeyes skated away with 42 shots on goal and a 5-2 victory leading into Saturday’s game.But the momentum wasn’t there Saturday as the Buckeyes lost 1-0 to the Beavers. Even with 38 shots on goal, BSU goaltender Zuzana Tomcikova, “made a difference,” OSU coach Jackie Barto said. Tomcikova will compete in the 2010 Winter Olympics as a member of the Slovakian National Team.It was a battle of the defenses with countless shots deflected by the sticks and bodies of BSU players, and OSU freshman goaltender Chelsea Knapp, who saved 32 shots for the Buckeyes.“We weren’t as consistent between the games as we’d like to be, so we have to play like we did the first game all the time,” Knapp said. “Tonight we weren’t really getting as many shots through as we would have liked.”The only goal came at 10:07 in the third period. With just less than one minute left in a BSU power play, Knapp made two quick stops. But a backside rebound by BSU’s Emily Erickson put it in the net for the Beavers to lead 1-0 midway through the third period.Power plays and penalty kills were abundant with seven OSU and nine BSU penalties Saturday.But it was Spooner’s penalty for “embellishment” in the second period that set off an eruption of excessive jeers from Buckeye fans and parents. A new rule approved for NCAA men’s and women’s hockey July 2, 2008, embellishment is called in conjunction with an opponent’s penalty as an exaggeration of the offense committed by the opponent.With a first period that lacked flow and a second period filled with unforced turnovers, the Buckeyes worked hard in the third.“We struggled at it tonight,” Barto said. “We had a good third, but it’s hard to keep that energy and momentum up.”Saturday’s game was the sixth game this season where Knapp has made 30 or more saves, and it was the second time the Buckeyes were shut out.Ohio State moves to 12-10-4 overall and 9-9-2-0 in the WCHA. The Buckeyes continue their home series against defending NCAA champion Wisconsin Jan. 29 at 7:07 p.m. in the Ohio State Ice Rink. read more

George Michaels ex Fadi Fawaz is arrested for damage to singers £5

George Michael and Fadi Fawaz in 2012Credit:Bauer Griffin/GC Images  Firefighters were called to the property to clear up leaking water. Police attended the home at around 7pm on Tuesday, a Met Police spokesman said. “Due to the damage inside the property the London Fire Brigade attended. “The man has been arrested on suspicion of aggravated criminal damage. He has been taken into custody at a north London police station,” the spokesman said.  The arrest comes after Mr Fawaz allegedly smashed windows at the property which he subsequently claimed was part of renovation works. A builder working in the area at the time claimed Mr Fawaz “went berserk”, smashing at least nine windows and a fan light. Mr Michael’s family has reportedly sent legal letters to Mr Fawaz, requesting that he vacate the property but the hairdresser has so far refused to leave the mansion. “Fadi is being a real pain about all of this. He has refused to leave despite several letters and requests in the last 18 months. He is blanking them out and it appears he now has squatters rights,” a source close to Mr Michael’s family told The Sun. George Michael and Fadi Fawaz in 2012 George Michael’s ex-partner, Fadi Fawaz has been arrested on suspicion of criminal damage after standing topless on the roof of the late singer’s £5 million London mansion. The 46-year-old hairdresser has been squatting in the “Faith” hitmaker’s house since his death on Christmas Day in 2016. The mansion was left to Mr Michael’s sister in the singer’s will where Mr Fawaz was not named. Mr Fawaz was arrested and taken away in a police van on Tuesday evening on suspicion of aggravated criminal damage and remained in custody on Wednesday night.He had climbed down from the roof by the time police arrived at the property where they observed “extensive damage”. He could be heard shouting and arresting release according to sources quoted by the Metro.  “I am not going there, I am not going there, I am staying here, I want to stay here,” a passerby claims to have heard Mr Fawaz shouting.  Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Bank deposits over 100000 into Greek school

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The Bank of Cyprus has provided over $100,000 to Alphington Grammar towards eight new classrooms and the new multi-purpose hall, currently under construction. President of the Greek Orthodox Community of Melbourne and Victoria (GOCMV), Bill Papastergiadis, said this grant follows from talks between the bank and the Greek community. “We’ve been talking to them for some time about sponsoring us and working side by side with our school,” Mr Papastergiadis told Neos Kosmos, adding that the GOCMV have been trying to bring reputable brands into the Greek community. The grant from the Bank of Cyprus is a one-off gift, marking the relationship between the GOCMV and Bank of Cyprus, Mr Papastergiadis said. He said that this is an example he hopes “others will mimic, whereby you have a strong move towards giving within our community.” In making the donation Managing Director of the Bank of Cyprus Australia, George Tacticos, acknowledged the GOCMV for its efforts to maintain and promote Hellenism. “Education is a key factor in the maintenance of our heritage and it is with great pleasure that the Bank of Cyprus Australia has chosen to assist Alphington Grammar,” he said. “We look forward to working with the President Bill Papastergiadis and his Board in the future.”last_img read more

Assessing the Newsstand

first_imgThe consumer magazine industry, as expected, took some huge hits at the newsstand and in overall circulation during the first half of the year, according the much-anticipated Fas-Fax report, released last month by the Audit Bureau of Circulations.Among the biggest drops in paid and verified circulation: Bauer’s Life & Style and In Touch, down 30 percent and 27.7 percent in overall paid circulation and 30.2 percent and 28.7 percent in single copy sales, respectively.Newsweek, which will see president and publisher Greg Osberg resign this fall, posted a 17.3 percent drop in single copy sales and a 12.6 percent fall-off in subscriptions. The magazine’s overall paid and verified circulation slid 12.8 percent to 2.7 million. U.S. News & World Report’s paid and verified circulation fell 10 percent.American Media Inc.’s National Enquirer saw subscription (-13.7 percent), single copy sales (-8.4 percent) and total paid and verified circ (-10.1) losses, while AMI’s Star didn’t fare much better (down 15.4 percent in subscriptions and 3.4 percent in single copy sales). Vogue’s single copy sales fell 14.8 percent and 6 percent overall during the first half, while Playboy’s single copy sales (-23.5 percent) and total paid (-6.2) saw equally pronounced declines.Holding SteadyA slew of titles managed to hold or even gain circulation while enduring the hit at the racks. TV Guide, for instance, saw its single copy sales plummet some 29 percent through June, but increased subscriptions by 2.4 percent and overall circulation by 0.3 percent.Men’s Vogue’s single copy sales dropped nearly 40 percent, but the magazine increased overall circulation by 20 percent thanks to a 43.6 percent uptick in subscriptions.Time’s single copy sales fell 7 percent, but its overall paid circulation (-0.3 percent) was left virtually untouched. Us Weekly’s single copy sales fell 10.4 percent, but its total paid circulation (0.2 percent) was flat.Martha Stewart Living fell 11.6 percent in single copy sales, but managed to increase overall circ by 1.6 percent, according to ABC. (Martha Stewart Weddings, though, slipped 7.5 percent in single copy sales and 7.5 percent overall.) The Advocate’s single copy sales fell 22 percent but the title’s total paid and verified circ increased 4.7 percent. Cookie’s single copy sales fell 19 percent, but a huge boost in subscriptions (43.1 percent) led to an overall circ gain. Entrepreneur, recently pulled off the sales block, saw single copy sales fall 11 percent, but its overall circulation decreased just over half a percent.Maxim’s single copy sales fell 11.7 percent, but its overall paid and verified circulation slid just 1.3 percent. Likewise, single copy sales for Rolling Stone slipped 6.6 percent during the first half, but overall paid circ (0.6 percent) actually increased.But the hedging works both ways. Vanity Fair increased its single copy sales 6 percent but saw paid and verified circulation drop a percentage point, thanks to a 4 percent dip in subscriptions. Sports Illustrated saw a 19.1 percent spike in single copy sales, but its overall paid circ (0.3 percent) remained essentially flat. Texas Monthly did well at the newsstand (up 16 percent) but increased its overall paid circ by just 1.3 percent. And Dennis Publishing’s The Week increased single copy sales by a whopping 62 percent—with an average of 1,820 copies per issue—but just 1.7 percent overall.Despite a fascinating Democratic primary season, The Nation’s subscriptions (down 2.6 percent), single copy sales (down 15.4 percent) and total paid and verified circ (down 2.8) all fell during the first half of the year.It wasn’t bad news for all publishers, however. OK! magazine’s single copy sales increased 19.4 percent during the first half—far and away the best performing celebrity title at the newsstand—and its total paid and verified circ 11.8 percent.The Atlantic continued its pursuit of profitability by increasing subscriptions 12.9 percent and total paid circ some 11.6 percent. And Wired increased its single copy sales (13.1 percent) and subscriptions (5.1 percent) for a 6.1 percent increase in total paid and verified circulation. Top 12 Titles Bear the BruntNearly two-thirds of consumer magazines that reported first half 2008 circulation figures with BPA Worldwide posted flat or lower circulation during the period, according to the audit group’s bi-annual report.Mature Living Choices (-29.5 percent), Cell (-18.5), California Lawyer (-15.6), American Snowmobiler (-14.9) and Sacramento (-14.7) were the largest decliners.Several titles also posted double-digit losses on the newsstand over the first half, including Florida Trend (-56.6 percent), National Fisherman (-51.1) and Restaurant Startup and Growth (-50.2). The positive standouts are Hispanic Business and Relish, which posted gains of 160.8 percent and 31.9 percent, respectively.During the first half, Meredith’s Ser Padres magazine saw overall circulation rise 41.2 percent—the largest increase of any of the 101 consumer magazines tracked by BPA.The American Journalism Review (+39.8 percent), newspaper magazine Relish (+31.9), WWE (+26.9) and the Weekly Standard (+18.1) were some of the other biggest overall BPA-audited circ gainers during the period.last_img read more

Assassins Creed Unity is in such a state Ubisoft cancels the Season

first_imgAssassin’s Creed: Unity has been an unmitigated disaster for Ubisoft. What should have been a game that easily topped the charts and earned its development money back and then some, has turned into a bit of a joke due to all the bugs and technical glitches the game shipped with. Ubisoft is working hard to fix all those issues through multiple patches, but at the same time is trying to forget the game ever existed as soon as possible. Evidence of this comes in the form news that Ubisoft has decided to ditch the AC: Unity Season Pass.You’ll notice that the Season Pass has disappeared from sale online. Gamers who pre-purchased the Season Pass will be glad to hear Ubisoft is going to offer you compensation in the form of a free game. The titles to choose from include:Assassin’s Creed Black FlagFar Cry 4Just Dance 2015Rayman LegendsThe CrewWatch DogsAs for the first DLC pack entitled Dead Kings, well, it’s going to be offered for free and it’s the only DLC pack the game will have. Ubisoft clearly just wants to fix the bugs, ship the DLC it has announced, and then move on to other projects.Yannis Mallat, CEO of Ubisoft Montreal and Toronto, has apologized for the quality of the game and points to the fact Unity comprises a brand new game engine, years of work on new technology, and suffered from a lot of unexpected issues. However, I can’t help but think all this could have been avoided if they’d moved the launch date to 2015 and worked out the technical details pre-launch. Anyone arguing about lost sales and missing the holiday season only has to look at how things turned out. Ubisoft’s reputation has been damaged and the next Assassin’s Creed game will be met with a lot of skepticism.last_img read more

Daedalus catches cyberattacks realtime

first_img NASA computer servers vulnerable to attack: audit According to a NICT video on DigInfo TV, “the sphere in the center represents the Internet, and the circles moving around it represent networks under observation. The state of an attack is shown using 3-D graphics, and can be viewed from any perspective.”Today’s cyber-attacks represent an assortment of malware via USB memory stick, mail attachments, and zero-day exploits. Daedalus can act as an alert system for the cyber-attacks; it can see if a USB flash drive with a virus infects a machine, for example. Daedalus can identify and isolate the malignant traffic on-screen, sending an email to support staff and displaying a red alert through its user interface.Further descriptions of an attack showing up realtime are provided in the video demo:”The blue part in this organization shows IP addresses that are used, and the black part shows addresses that are not used. This character indicates an alert. When you click on the alert, a message showing the cause appears. In this case, only two packets have been sent. But because the packets go from an address that’s used to an address that’s not used, this indicates that a virus is starting to spread within the organization.” The system sends out an alert, saying, ‘This IP address of yours is spreading a virus using this protocol at this time’.”Daedalus is designed to be used together with conventional systems, to improve network security within organizations. “We previously created a system called nicter for observing cyber-attacks. We also built an observation network in Japan, called the Darknet Observation Network, to cover IP addresses not used in nicter,” said a NICT source in the video. The nicter is a system for early detection and in-depth analysis of cyber-attacks. That word stands for Network Incident Analysis Center for Tactical Emergency Response. NICT is to provide Daedalus free of charge to educational institutions where nicter sensors can be installed. NICT will also transfer access to the system to Clwit, a company described as a Tokyo-based business providing Internet security countermeasures. According to reports, Clwit will develop it into the product, SiteVisor. Where administrators may have to comb through hundreds of lines of server logs to isolate a problem, the Daedalus system can reveal where attackers are focusing their flood of packets, as a stream of arrows moving along iridescent lines. Explore further More information: ( — Japan’s National Institute of Information and Communications Technology (NICT) has developed a national cyber-attack alert system that can render network attacks as visible in realtime. The system, announced earlier this month and showcased at Interop Tokyo 2012, is called Daedalus, standing for Direct Alert Environment for Darknet and Livenet Unified Security. The system views computers for any suspicious activity and if it spots an attack it can visualize its progression as it moves through the network. It sees how data flows through the network and looks for inconsistencies. center_img © 2012 Phys.Org via Diginfo Citation: Daedalus catches cyber-attacks realtime (2012, June 20) retrieved 18 August 2019 from This document is subject to copyright.

Related Airlines doing it differently Skyscanner

first_img RelatedAirlines doing it differently: Skyscanner investigatesAirlines are doing things differently in an attempt to set themselves apart in the highly competitive aviation industry.Family Travel: flying with kidsSkyscanner’s guide to flying with children.What’s the best hand luggage bag?With more and more airlines charging for checked bags, it’s worth travelling light to save money. We’ve got tips from all the frequent flyers at Skyscanner, as well as globe-trotting travel bloggers, so escape baggage fees and go hand luggage only with these top cabin bags. Aviation and fashion have always enjoyed a close relationship – from the mini-skirted air stewardesses of the sixties, right up to this year’s Burberry aviator jacket, seen on the catwalk at Fashion Week. Over the last decade a trend has also emerged for airlines to commission some of the world’s top fashion designers to create stylish cabin crew uniforms. But how effective has this been?Skyscanner reviews the fashion-forward airlines and discovers who its users think is the most stylish airline.Fashion heavyweight Italy was one of the first countries to enlist a fashion designer to design uniforms for its national carrier. In the early 1990s Giorgio Armani designed uniforms for Alitalia, to much critical acclaim. However today’s uniform, designed by Mondrian from the Nadinin Group, gets just 8% of the votes in Skyscanner’s poll of the most stylish airlines.Welsh designer Julien MacDonald took his needle and thread to BA’s uniform in 2004 in an effort to stop cabin crew looking like “someone’s old granny”. A respectable 15% of Skyscanner users think that BA, which sponsors London Fashion Week, should take the top title in the style poll.Air France commissioned Christian Lacroix to design a whole wardrobe of items for cabin crew in 2005. Lacroix designs for an impressive list of celebrities, and Skyscanner users are suitably impressed, with 17% voting Air France’s uniforms as the most stylish.LA-based couture designer Richard Tyler debuted his designs for Delta Airlines at New York Fashion Week in 2005, with an attention-grabbing red dress. However the dresses have not grabbed Skyscanner users’ attention, with a measly 5% voting Delta to be the most stylish.Spanish designer Adolfo Dominguez, whose dresses are coveted by Gwyneth Paltrow, introduced coloured shirts to denote ranking when he designed the Iberia uniforms. Dominguez may be a celebrity favourite but the poll results show he is not a Skyscanner favourite, taking just 9% of the votes.While many other airlines, including Jet Aiways and Lufthansa, have also used top fashion designers to create their uniforms, the appeal seems to be limited, according to the results of the poll. The airline that Skyscanner users actually deemed to be the most stylish is Qatar Airways. The airline’s retro-look crimson uniform took a massive 33% of all votes.Top ten most stylish airlines ranked in order of most stylish*:1. Qatar Airways2. Air France3. British Airways4. Iberia5.

House condemns US move on Jerusalem

first_imgThe House plenary approved on Wednesday, a resolution that condemns the US government`s decision to recognise Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.The resolution said that the action is contrary to the UN Security Council resolutions, poses serious risks for security in the region, and undermines efforts to resolve the Middle East issue. The House called on the US to reverse this decision.The resolution was adopted by 35 votes in favour, 18 against and 2 abstentions. MPs of ruling Disy voted against, while independent MP Pavlos Mylonas and one of the two National Popular Front MPs, who was present at the voting, Linos Papagiannis, abstained.In its resolution, the House reaffirms its position for a two-state solution, consistent with the position of the EU Foreign Affairs Council for an independent, viable Palestinian state in line with the June 4, 1967, borders, with East Jerusalem as its capital, that will co-exist peacefully next to the state of Israel.You May LikeAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndoDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoKelley Blue Book10 Electric Cars That Last the LongestKelley Blue BookUndo Our View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoAuthorities release five of 12 Israeli rape suspects, seven due in court FridayUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img
