26 March 2013All eyes will be on Durban on Tuesday as the much-anticipated 5th BRICS Summit gets under way at the city’s International Convention Centre.The leaders of Brazil, Russia, India and China will join South African President Jacob Zuma in hammering out far-reaching finance issues for the bloc, the possible formation of a new development bank targeting BRICS and other emerging markets.Security has been tightened around the Convention Centre, with 3 000 law enforcement officers deployed in Durban for the duration of the event.More than 5 000 delegates are expected to attend the summit, which South Africa is hosting for the first time since joining the group of influential emerging economies in 2010.Observers have said the summit will give South Africa the opportunity to flex its diplomatic muscle and seal its position within the grouping.Other issues on the agenda include the role of BRICS as a partner in helping the continent in its infrastructure development and industrialisation drive. At the 2011 BRICS summit in Sanya, China, the leaders pledged their commitment to Africa’s industrialisation.There will also be the launch of a BRICS Business Council to promote increased trade within the bloc.At a briefing in Pretoria on Tuesday, President Zuma said the country’s BRICS membership fitted well with its National Development Plan (NDP), a policy blueprint for creating jobs and tackling poverty and inequality through development.The two-day summit is expected to inject more than R100-million into Durban’s economy.Source: SAnews.gov.za

About the authorPaul VegasShare the loveHave your say Liverpool boss Klopp finds Hoever positive in FA Cup defeatby Paul Vegas10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool boss Jurgen Klopp was happy with Ki-Jana Hoever’s performance in their FA Cup defeat to Wolves.The 16 year-old played for 84 minutes at the back.“I am not sure what you all would have said if immediately from the beginning if our centre-half situation was Fabinho and Ki-Jana; then probably a few very smart people would tell me that I don’t respect the competition or whatever,” Klopp said.“So, we tried to do all the things [we could]. Of course, on the other hand it doesn’t make sense to bring in a 16-year-old boy from the start. You don’t bring him, you wait until he is completely ready, but he did well. He came on and did well. That’s how it sometimes starts – when you are really needed then it is only about if you are good enough and not how old you are.“He did well, so that was all OK. That’s it.” Hoever had replaced Dejan Lovren and Klopp added: “[It is Dejan Lovren’s] hamstring, is what I heard – without any signs before. I asked everybody, no signs, nothing, just out of the blue, so that’s the decision you have to make.“I don’t know in this moment how long he will be out.”
Saturday night, after Kentucky lost its first and only game of the 2014-2015 college basketball season, sophomore guard Andrew Harrison made a big mistake at his team’s post-game press conference, uttering a very NSFW phrase while his microphone was turned on. Harrison, who is facing criticism for the transgression, has since apologized.If you missed it, Harrison, after listening to his teammate Karl-Anthony Towns get asked about Wisconsin big man Frank Kaminsky, muttered “f*** that n****” to himself. Undoubtedly, it was stupid. But it was not racist. And there is no double standard going on here.For some reason, a number of college basketball fans are making the argument that if the situation had been reversed, and it had been Kaminsky uttering those words to himself, he’d be labeled a racist. Any by that logic, because Harrison isn’t being labeled as a racist, and because he isn’t likely to face any serious punishment, there is a double standard going on here.We’re not making this up. There are hundreds, if not thousands of tweets about it.If Andrew Harrison was white, we’d have a national catastrophe on our hands. Talk about a double standard— Alex Petik (@MuskyMaster5033) April 5, 2015Such a double standard with race I hate it. Andrew Harrison says what he says and it doesn’t get blown up but if it was other way around…— Tyler Boyle (@theeroyalboyle) April 5, 2015If Frank K had said the EXACT same thing about Andrew Harrison, think it would’ve been swept under the rug? What a double standard!— Dtrain41 (@DaneHenderson1) April 5, 2015If Andrew Harrison isn’t kicked out of school it’s a double standard @KentuckyMBB— Lara McGlynn (@lalalaLaraxo) April 5, 2015Obviously, if Kaminsky, a white man, had called Harrison, an African American, the n-word, he’d have been (rightfully) labeled a racist. There’s no doubt there. But comparing this to the Oklahoma SAE issue is absolutely insane.Where’s the disconnect here? Whether or not you agree with it, many African Americans refer to each other using the n-word. It’s part of the hip-hop culture. It’s part of the locker room culture. Heck, even ESPN’s Michael Wilbon admits that he and his friends use the word to “endearingly” refer to each other. To be clear, there was nothing endearing about what Harrison said about Kaminsky. But in the context of the situation, if Harrison had said “F*** that dude”, he’d be essentially saying the same thing.Harrison acted like a sore loser, and again, he should never have said what he said. But there is no double standard here. Just stop.

Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Apr 29 2019Mesothelioma patients are twice as likely to survive for two years or longer, if they are treated with a high dose of radiation to the affected side of the trunk, according to research presented at the ESTRO 38 conference.Mesothelioma is a rare but aggressive form of cancer that grows in the layers of tissues surrounding the lungs. It is usually caused by exposure to asbestos. Patients typically only live for a year or two following diagnosis and treatment options are very limited.The study looked at patients whose cancers could not be completely removed with surgery and the researchers say their findings have the potential to change treatment and outcomes for this group of patients.The study was led by Dr Marco Trovo MD, chief of the Radiation Oncology Department at University Hospital of Udine, Italy. He said: “There is an urgent need for more effective treatments for mesothelioma. Surgery can be given to these patients, but it is often impossible to remove all of the tumors.”Patients with mesothelioma are sometimes given radiotherapy to help control their symptoms. However, radiotherapy has evolved dramatically in the last few years so we wanted to see if it could now be used to prevent the cancer from spreading to nearby tissue, hopefully bringing improvements in survival.The study involved 108 patients with malignant pleural mesothelioma who were treated at the National Cancer Institute of Aviano, Italy, between 2014 and 2018. All were given surgery to remove some tumor tissue, followed by chemotherapy.Half were randomly assigned to receive radical hemi-thoracic radiotherapy, meaning the radiation was delivered to either the left or right side of their trunk, depending on where the tumor was located. This involved 25 treatments delivering a total dose of 50 Gy to the left or right side of the trunk, as well as an extra 60 Gy dose to the precise location of the tumor. The other patients received a more typical palliative form of radiotherapy. This involved five to ten treatments delivering a total dose of 20-30 Gy to the precise location of the tumor.Related StoriesAdult survivors of pediatric brain tumors may experience cognitive, socioeconomic burdensNew research uncovers mechanism behind the newest generation of cancer drugsRemoving asbestos from schools likely to increase cases of mesotheliomaOf the patients who received the aggressive radiotherapy treatment, 58% were still alive two years later. In the patients who received the palliative radiotherapy, 28% were still alive two years later.Around 20% of patients receiving radical hemi-thoracic radiotherapy suffered radiation pneumonitis (inflammation of the lung). Other sides effects included weakness, nausea and mild inflammation of the oesophagus.Dr Trovo said: “This research shows a clear survival benefit in using this type of radiotherapy for mesothelioma patients whose tumors can only partially be removed by surgery. We believe that this should be considered the new standard of care for these patients.”He hopes that even greater gains in survival could be made by treating patients with radiotherapy followed by targeted immunotherapy (where the body’s own immune system is encouraged to fight cancer cells).Professor Umberto Ricardi, President of ESTRO and head of the Department of Oncology at the University of Turin, Italy, who was not involved in the research, said: “This is an extremely positive result that brings good news to patients with this rare and difficult-to-treat cancer. To ensure these patients benefit from this type of treatment, it’s important that they are referred to a specialist cancer center with the right expertise and equipment to carefully plan and deliver the most effective radiotherapy treatment, and manage any side effects that occur.” Source:https://www.estro.org/
Follow five easy tips for a healthier you:1. See your doctor.It happens to everyone. Some health challenges come on with age. Family history plays a big part in what a physician will focus on, but there are key issues and screenings that are age-related. “Seeing your doctor regularly means that you have a baseline for important screenings,” says Heckman. “This includes everything from cholesterol to cancer screenings and osteoporosis.”Related StoriesMore than 936 million people have sleep apnea, ResMed-led analysis revealsDiet and nutrition influence microbiome in colonic mucosaUnpleasant experiences could be countered with a good night’s REM sleep2. Eat a healthy diet.You’ve heard this before. A diet that’s low in fat and full of fruits and vegetables can help lower the risk of certain cancers, such as prostate cancer. “For good prostate health, eat your fruits and veggies,” says Aria Olumi, MD, Chief of Urologic Surgery at BIDMC.3. Quit smoking.Smoking and bladder cancer? Yes. We know that smoking is harmful to your heart and lungs-;but it’s also linked to about half of all bladder cancer cases. “Bladder cancer risk factors like age, gender, race and family history can’t be controlled,” Olumi says. “But quitting smoking can definitely lower your risk.”4. Get enough sleep.A good night’s rest can do wonders. Overstimulation of the brain, stress and a lack of sleep can cause overall fatigue and libido issues. “Lower testosterone levels may contribute to these issues, but more often than not, it’s because the patient isn’t getting enough sleep,” Olumi says. “At least seven hours of sleep a night will help your mind and body reset.”5. Take care of your mental health.Did you know mental and physical health are connected? Mental illness affects both men and women, but men may be less likely to talk about their feelings and seek help. “Mental health symptoms often appear to be physical issues-;like a racing heart, tightening chest, ongoing headaches or digestive issues,” Heckman says. “Talking to a professional or a loved one about stress or other challenges can be very helpful.” Source:Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center (BIDMC) Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych.

UK seeking warrant to access Cambridge Analytica servers (Update) © 2018 The Associated Press. All rights reserved. Citation: UK parliament asks Zuckerberg to testify in data misuse case (2018, March 20) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-03-uk-parliament-zuckerberg-testify-misuse.html A British parliamentary committee on Tuesday summoned Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg to answer questions on fake news as authorities step up efforts to determine whether data has been improperly used to influence elections. Explore further The request comes amid reports that a U.K.-based company allegedly used Facebook data to help Donald Trump win the 2016 presidential election. The company, Cambridge Analytica, has been accused of improperly using information from more than 50 million Facebook accounts. It denies wrongdoing.The chairman of the U.K. parliamentary media committee, Damian Collins, said Tuesday that his group has repeatedly asked Facebook how it uses data and that Facebook officials “have been misleading to the committee.””It is now time to hear from a senior Facebook executive with the sufficient authority to give an accurate account of this catastrophic failure of process,” Collins wrote in a note addressed directly to Zuckerberg. “Given your commitment at the start of the New Year to ‘fixing’ Facebook, I hope that this representative will be you.”The request to appear comes as Britain’s information commissioner said she was using all her legal powers to investigate the social media giant and Cambridge Analytica over the alleged misuse of data.Commissioner Elizabeth Denham is pursuing a warrant to search Cambridge Analytica’s servers. She has also asked Facebook to cease in its efforts to pursue its own audit of Cambridge Analytica’s data use.”Our advice to Facebook is to back away and let us go in and do our work,” she said.Cambridge Analytica said it is committed to helping the U.K. investigation. However, Denham gave the firm a deadline to produce the information she requested—and it failed to meet it, her office said.Denham said the prime allegation against Cambridge Analytica is that it acquired personal data in an unauthorized way, adding that the data provisions act requires platforms like Facebook to have strong safeguards against misuse of data.Chris Wylie, who once worked for Cambridge Analytica, was quoted as saying the company used the data to build psychological profiles so voters could be targeted with ads and stories.The firm found itself in further allegations of wrongdoing. Britain’s Channel 4 used an undercover investigation to record Cambridge Analytica’s chief executive, Alexander Nix, saying that the company could use unorthodox methods to wage successful political campaigns for clients.He said the company could “send some girls” around to a rival candidate’s house, suggesting that girls from Ukraine are beautiful and effective in this role.He also said the company could “offer a large amount of money” to a rival candidate and have the whole exchange recorded so it could be posted on the internet to show that the candidate was corrupt.Nix says in a statement on the company’s website that he deeply regrets his role in the meeting and has apologized to staff.”I am aware how this looks, but it is simply not the case,” he said. “I must emphatically state that Cambridge Analytica does not condone or engage in entrapment, bribes or so-called ‘honeytraps’, and nor does it use untrue material for any purposes.”Nix told the BBC the Channel 4 sting was “intended to embarrass us”.”We see this as a co-ordinated attack by the media that’s been going on for very, very many months in order to damage the company that had some involvement with the election of Donald Trump,” he said.The data harvesting used by Cambridge Analytica has also triggered calls for further investigation from the European Union, as well as federal and state officials in the United States.
