However, it remains higher. Greek bank stocks also rose 10.4 per cent. Additionally, investors were encouraged by a survey showing German business morale was at its highest level this month in almost a year.  The Dax 30 index in Frankfurt rose one per cent in morning trading, but has now fallen slightly to 11,738 – still 0.13 per cent higher than yesterday. By mid-morning, France’s Cac had also risen 0.8 per cent, while the FTSE 100 was 0.6 per cent higher at 7,092.5, approaching the record peak of 7,119.40 it achieved last week. center_img European markets rise as optimism over a possible Greece deal strengthens whatsapp whatsapp More From Our Partners Astounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgInstitutional Investors Turn To Options to Bet Against AMCvaluewalk.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comWhite House Again Downplays Fourth Possible Coronvirus Checkvaluewalk.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Friday 24 April 2015 9:21 amlast_img read more

Students Urged to Protect the Rights of Authors

first_imgRelatedStudents Urged to Protect the Rights of Authors RelatedStudents Urged to Protect the Rights of Authors Advertisements FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Dr. Cherrell Shelley Robinson, author and lecturer at the University of the West Indies, has urged students to protect the rights of authors by not plagiarising their material.Dr. Robinson, who was speaking at the launch of World Book and Copyright Day 2006 on Tuesday (April 11) at the St. Thomas Technical High School, said that while it was important for students to read widely and research, they must protect the reading material and preserve the rights of the authors.“In today’s information age, nobody can teach you everything you need to know, so reading material is very important and .the rights of the author should be protected,” she said. “One way of respecting the rights of authors is not copying their work illegally, because that robs them of their financial rewards for the hard work they put into producing the book,” she stated.World Book and Copyright Day is an annual observance of the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) and according to Secretary General for the Caribbean Region, Everton Hannam, what UNESCO has tried to do over the past 11 years, “is to sensitise persons about copyright and issues associated with copyright, piracy and the laws governing it to raise the level of awareness about these issues to students, teachers and the general public in Jamaica.”“World Book and Copyright Day is an activity specially geared towards informing and educating students, teachers and librarians on all the issues relating to copyright,” he stressed, expressing the hope that, “by the time its effectiveness can be accurately measured, say in another 20 years, it would be firmly in the minds of a vast majority of the populace that copyright is a very important matter and that there is need for it to be taken very seriously”.Tenth grade student, Kemisha Lawrence, told JIS News that although she did not understand everything about copyright and the rules governing the issue, she was happy that the launch took place at her school. “At least I got a chance to hear about it and so now I know a little and with the material they have left behind, I can go up to the library and read some more at my own pace,” she said.center_img RelatedStudents Urged to Protect the Rights of Authors Students Urged to Protect the Rights of Authors UncategorizedApril 13, 2006last_img read more

COVID-19 Update: Testing and Quarantine Requirements for Melbourne Airport

first_imgCOVID-19 Update: Testing and Quarantine Requirements for Melbourne Airport Department of the Chief Minister and CabinetThe Chief Health Officer has this morning directed anyone who travelled from Perth to Melbourne on Wednesday 21 April 2021 on flight QF778 and has arrived in the Northern Territory must undertake a 14-day quarantine period.This decision comes off the back of clinical advice received late on Friday, where the Victorian Department of Health listed the flight itself as a high-risk COVID-19 exposure site.All passengers on this flight will be contacted by Victorian Health Authorities and if found to be in the Northern Territory will be required to undertake 14 days mandatory supervised quarantine at the Howard Springs as directed by the CHO.Additionally, the Chief Health Officer has directed anyone who was in Melbourne’s Tullamarine Airport Terminal One between 6.30 and 7.30pm on Wednesday 21 April 2021 to quarantine at home, arrange a COVID-19 test, and remain in quarantine at home until a negative test is returned. The Victorian health authorities have therefore listed this time at the airport terminal as a ‘tier two exposure site’.Both of these directions are linked to the Perth and Peel Region Hotspot declared yesterday by Northern Territory health authorities.To arrange a test, please contact the COVID-19 Hotline on 1800 490 484 or book online at /Public Release.

Ignore your car’s unwanted rattles, shakes and vibrations at your peril

first_img The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever Trending in Canada advertisement See More Videos RELATED TAGSChevroletSafety and MaintenanceMaintenanceNew Vehicles ‹ Previous Next › Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2 Unwanted shakes and vibrations are not only annoying, they can lead to some pretty expensive bills. We encourage all readers to share their views on our articles using Facebook commenting Visit our FAQ page for more information. Trending Videoscenter_img Do you need a wheel alignment? Here’s how you can tellInterestingly enough, strobe light balancers — an older technology that’s now very hard to find — can actually provide a better result. These were commonly used several decades ago and didn’t require the wheel and tire to be removed from the vehicle. When wheels were balanced using this method, it took into account and balanced the wheel hub assembly as well, providing a more accurate result.Beyond tires, driveline vibrations are most often caused by driveshafts and mainly affect trucks and SUVs due to longer driveshafts leading to the rear axle. Often when a joint of these shafts start to seize, they will cause the shaft to spin out of balance. These vibrations often start as being only noticeable during acceleration or deceleration.Driveshaft vibrations can be an early warning sign of impending failure; leave one unattended long enough and the joint causing the shakes can fail, completely dropping the shaft to the ground and leaving you stranded. COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS Basic tire balancing equipment, no matter how expensive or advanced, can’t solve all tire vibrations. This is why many higher-volume tire specialty shops and OEM dealerships have invested in road-force balancing equipment. These balancers use a roller that applies force to the tire’s tread-face while it’s spinning to simulate loads when rolling down the road. In rare cases, where regular balancing doesn’t resolve a vibration, and there are no problems with the tire or wheel, road-force balancing will usually do the trick — albeit at a slightly higher cost.RELATED No matter how much you like your vehicle, an unwanted vibration can turn that love affair sour faster than a Formula One lap time. Like certain annoying noises, vibrations can be much more than a negative distraction — they can be symptoms of something gone wrong. And sometimes, if left unattended, they can lead to expensive failures.Tires are the number one cause of vehicle vibrations. While they can occur at any speed, a typical out-of-balance or otherwise defective tire and wheel will display higher frequency vibrations at speeds over 60 km/h. If you can drive ‘through’ the shakes by increasing or decreasing speed, you’re likely dealing with a tire vibration.These types of vibrations may be resolved by rebalancing the unit, but not always. Wheels can bend due to impacts and tires can even become less round for the same reasons. In addition, wheel hubs can cause vibrations if any rust or stuck-on grit prevents the wheel properly seating. This can often be rectified with a wire brush. If you’ve ever crawled underneath your truck and taken a good look at its driveshaft, you’ll notice small pieces of metal tack welded on to its surface. These are balance weights; driveshaft balancing is a specialty and the equipment and skill sets are usually only found at heavy-truck repair centres. Buy It!

Fauci shares pandemic insights with CU Boulder students

first_imgShare Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail CU Boulder Chancellor Philip P. DiStefano posed questions from students to Anthony Fauci, the nation’s top infectious diseases expert, this week as part of a new class that addresses various aspects of the COVID-19 pandemic. The course––designed in part by students––investigates the challenges students face while building their ability to improve personal wellness. Health, Society and Wellness in COVID-19 Times, a one-credit online class, offers lectures taught by 35 scholars from across the university, including a Nobel Laureate in addition to Fauci.Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases, said he especially wanted to reach out to college-aged youth with his message. “If they get infected, they may be under the false impression that, ‘It doesn’t make any difference if I get infected. My symptoms might be none or very minor…It doesn’t make any difference to the rest of society,’” he said. “That is really not correct. Because if you don’t take care and protect yourself from infection, you are inadvertently and even innocently propagating the pandemic.” Through the course, more than 3,500 incoming students in the College of Arts and Sciences, the School of Education and the College of Media, Communication and Information critically analyze the interrelationship between the COVID-19 pandemic and systemic racism. They also gain tools to cultivate a socially responsible campus and maintain their wellness.The concept for the course began last spring, when CU Boulder leaders realized students needed practical information to stem the spread of COVID-19 and instruction in antiracism. Rather than study them separately, course developers believed faculty could create an academic experience that explored the historical moments together.Fourteen students—including some from local high schools, incoming and current CU Boulder students and recent graduates—identified content they thought students needed to know, skills they needed, and ways instructors could most effectively deliver that information.Faculty were then invited to submit 15-minute lessons for the course and deliver them to the student teams for review. CU Boulder Nobel Laureate Tom Cech was one of the first faculty to submit a lesson.In the 15-minute interview, Fauci talked about his path to his current position, which began with immersion in the humanities. He also discussed the bigger challenges presented by the pandemic and the ways in which he keeps himself physically and mentally healthy. “We’ve got to take not only personal responsibility to protect ourselves. We’ve got to be aware of our societal responsibility…You can help bring this to an end by protecting yourself.”Categories:AcademicsCampus Community Published: Oct. 31, 2020 last_img read more

Anti-TNF therapies could treat patients with COVID-19-related acute respiratory distress: GlobalData

As these anti-TNF therapies reduce inflammation, they could treat COVID-19 patients with acute respiratory distress (ARDS), says GlobalData, a data and analytics company.This would reduce COVID-19 mortality, as about 17 per cent of COVID-19 patients develop ARDS.Patrick Aiyes, Senior Healthcare Analyst, GlobalData, comments, “Currently, there are no pharmaceutical companies testing TNF inhibitors in patients with COVID-19; this could be an opportunity to explore, given the pressing need for treatments for COVID-19. The proposed patient group for anti-TNF therapy would be those in a clinical trial setting with moderate diseases and requiring oxygen support but not admitted to intensive care.”Although anti-TNF therapy could be useful clinically, it is possible that it may not outweigh the cost-benefit ratio, given that in diseases such as ulcerative colitis (UC), the annual cost of therapy can range from $11,000–14,000 in the UK.”Aiyes concludes, “Although in theory, anti-TNF therapy could be beneficial in treating COVID-19, concerns surrounding the drug class’ safety profile remain. In COVID-19 patients, there is some evidence that bacterial infections could develop faster in a damaged lung and anti-TNF therapy could increase the risk of that infection due to its effects on a patient’s inflammatory response. There are preclinical studies in mice that demonstrate that anti-TNF therapy improves symptoms of influenza and respiratory syncytial virus (RSV). In RA patients, blocking TNF reduces cytokine concentrations. This indicates that anti-TNFs in COVID-19 patients could prove beneficial.” Heartfulness group of organisations launches ‘Healthcare by Heartfulness’ COVID care app Share Phoenix Business Consulting invests in telehealth platform Healpha Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals releases first “Comprehensive Textbook of COVID-19” MaxiVision Eye Hospitals launches “Mucormycosis Early Detection Centre” News WHO tri-regional policy dialogue seeks solutions to challenges facing international mobility of health professionalslast_img read more

NWC Moves to Improve Negril Water Supply

first_imgNWC Moves to Improve Negril Water Supply EnvironmentApril 4, 2013 FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail The National Water Commission (NWC) has embarked on several measures to improve water delivery in the Negril area during the short term, and to develop additional sources within 18 months.This was announced by Minister of Water, Land, Environment and Climate Change, Hon. Robert Pickersgill, while addressing hoteliers and other stakeholders at a function held at Breezes Negril, on April 3.The meeting was held by the Minister to outline strategies being employed by the NWC to alleviate the difficulties being experienced by residents and businesses during the drought affecting the island. One of the measures, the Minister said, is that the NWC is aggressively trying to deal with leaks as they are indentified on the system.Mr. Pickersgill said the NWC is also trying to ensure the effective implementation of a schedule, to ensure that all customers receive some water at least every other day for at least eight hours, and that the Commission is already paying $9 million monthly for the trucking of water, from which it recovers no revenue.“A new loading bay has been established along the Sheffield main road, to reduce the time, cost and difficulties involved in the legal trucking of water, and this is to be fully operational later this week,” the Minister informed.“We are appealing to persons not to support the illegal extraction of water from the system, as this practice is only making a bad situation worse. Furthermore, the quality of water delivered in trucks that are not known to have been sterilized, cannot be guaranteed,” he stated.Other measures to improve water supply in the Negril area are the addition of two Rapid Response trucks; and work currently taking place at the Great River Treatment Plant to get the facility to produce its maximum of 15 million gallons per day, to boost the Logwood system.The Minister said for the longer term, work will be done to expand the water production capacity of the Martha Brae Treatment Plant from 6 million gallons per day to 11 million, as part of the process of having more water on the North Coast to distribute westwards. “This project is scheduled to be completed in about 18 months,” he added.Mr. Pickersgill said that surveyors are currently working in the town of Lucea on preparatory works for an improved pipeline network through the town, to allow for water from the Great River Treatment Plant to come as far as Green Island, and for water from the Logwood Treatment Plant to be dedicated to serving Negril.By Garfield Angus, JIS reporter RelatedNWC Moves to Improve Negril Water Supply RelatedNWC Moves to Improve Negril Water Supplycenter_img RelatedNWC Moves to Improve Negril Water Supply Advertisementslast_img read more

Focus on ‘Logistics-Centred’ Economy Will Influence Business Atmosphere – Ffolkes-Abrahams

first_imgFocus on ‘Logistics-Centred’ Economy Will Influence Business Atmosphere – Ffolkes-Abrahams CommerceJune 4, 2014Written by: Glenis A. Rose Minister of State in the Ministry of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Sharon Ffolkes-Abrahams, says that the government’s thrust to establish and sustain a ‘logistics-centred’ economy, will result in a more efficient and business friendly atmosphere.Addressing a cocktail reception to welcome participants of the 5th Annual Caribbean Microfinance Forum at the Iberostar Rose Hall Hotel Suites in Montego Bay on Monday, June 2, the State Minister reiterated government’s support for the conference which is being staged under the theme, “Building An Environment for Entrepreneurs To Excel”.She noted that the theme is in keeping with government’s position on micro, small and medium-sized enterprises, but it also means “greater wealth-creating opportunities, jobs and inclusive growth; greater opportunities and rewards for entrepreneurship; more possibilities for innovation; doing things faster, more efficiently and in general, an improved business environment with far less bureaucracy.”Mrs. Ffolkes Abrahams pointed to great expectations across the business environment, informing that over the period 2013 to 2016, the global microfinance market is expected to grow at a Compound Annual Growth Rate of 16.6 percent which, she said, can be used as an indicator of future growth of regional markets.“Have we ever stopped to seriously ask the question, ‘why is it that we care about micro enterprises and micro finance?’ Why is it that we have in excess of 10,000 micro finance institutions globally? Why is it that in Latin America and the Caribbean we have more than 600 micro finance institutions with billions of dollars in loans to more than 10 million low-income clients?  Why is it that global growth of 15 to 20 per cent is expected in the micro-finance industry during 2014?” Minister Ffolkes-Abrahams enquired.She suggested that Jamaica’s economy at this time needs small business development and growth, and the financing to offer support to the sector.“We are building an environment for entrepreneurs to excel … here in Jamaica and across the Caribbean and we want to welcome and congratulate all of you who are here to participate in this forum which is expected to plan for the development of this initiative,” Minister Ffolkes-Abrahams said.Mayor of Montego Bay and Chairman of the St. James Parish Council, Glendon Harris welcomed the over 155 delegates and presenters from across the region.The Mayor advanced the view that  micro financing was the solution to reducing unemployment in the country.“We have been going through challenging times over the years and I am sure that with the right opportunities, our Jamaican people will greatly improve and enhance their entrepreneurship and move up the economic ladder, reducing poverty in the country.  We hope that this conference will serve to enlighten and empower persons to be better entrepreneurs,” Mayor Harris noted.Participants in the four-day forum will be exploring best practices and trends, as well as challenges being faced within micro enterprises and microfinance providers.The forum is being jointly funded by the Multilateral Investment Fund (a member of the IDB) the European Union, Caribbean Development Bank, the Citi Foundation.

Previously she worked at consumer goods giant Unilever.She had been set to take over at the helm of KPN in December 2019, having already announced her departure from Proximus.However, following a well-publicised insider trading investigation by Belgium’s stock market, authority KPN cancelled the move citing “uncertainty”.The case against Leroy was eventually dropped in July, after she agreed to pay a €107,841 settlement with the Financial Services and Markets Authority.
