Harpers 2008 residential school apology was attempt to kill the story says

first_imgFull Paul Bunner articleDownload (PDF, Unknown) (Prime Minister Stephen Harper after delivering apology to Indian residential school survivors on June 11, 2008. PMO photo)Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsPrime Minister Stephen Harper’s 2008 apology to Indian residential school survivors was a “strategic attempt to kill the story,” according to former speechwriter in the Prime Minister’s Office at the time.Paul Bunner was the head speechwriter in Harper’s PMO between 2006 and 2009.Bunner’s views on the Indian residential school apology and the possible motivation behind it recently surfaced on a blog by Coast Salish Native American writer Robert Jago who outed a series of Conservative candidates, current and former MP staffers, along with Bunner for their comments and views on First Nation people.Jago, who currently lives in Montreal, is from the Nooksack Tribe in Washington State. His family is registered with the Kwantlen First Nation, in British Columbia.Earlier this week, Sue MacDonell was fired from her role as director with the Bay of Quinte Conservative riding association after some of her online, racially-charged comments against First Nation people surfaced.The blog highlights an article by Bunner written in 2013 titled, The Genocide That Failed, where the former PMO speechwriter discussed the 2008 apology.“The best that can be said of Harper’s apology is that it was a strategic attempt to kill the story and move on to a better relationship between Native s and Non-Natives,” wrote Bunner, in the C2C Journal. “Unfortunately, it only appears to have deepened the conviction that Church and State conspired not only to ‘kill the Indian in the child,’ but also to physically exterminate the whole race. The Aboriginal grievance and entitlement narrative continues to gather momentum.”Paul Bunner. Photo: TwitterBunner stood by his writing in an interview with APTN National News Thursday. He said they did not reflect the views of the PMO at the time of the apology.“That was just my opinion long after I left the PMO,” he said. “You know it seemed to me that it in the PM’s mind and presumably in the government’s mind, it was a sincere apology…My concerns about it were strictly my own and they were not obviously shared by the prime minister or other senior people in the PMO.”Bunner said he told colleagues at the time he was unhappy with the prime minister’s plan to issue an apology for Indian residential schools.“I was not happy with the apology,” said Bunner, in the interview. “I probably expressed it to some of my colleagues.”Bunner said he had “very little input” on Harper’s apology speech, but he did read it before it was delivered by the prime minister in the House of Commons to much fanfare.“I may have seen a draft, I may have commented on it,” said Bunner. “None of my ideas wound up in the final version.”The Harper government has said it considers the apology to Indian residential school survivors a historic moment.The apology, however, has recently been called hollow.Truth and Reconciliation Commission Chair Murray Sinclair said during the release of the commission’s residential school report in June that the prime minister had failed to live up to the promise of the apology. Sinclair said at the time he didn’t believe Harper was committed to true reconciliation.“We believe the current government is not willing to make good on its claim that it wishes to join with Aboriginal people in Canada in a ‘relationship based on the knowledge of our shared history, a respect for each other and a desire to move forward together’ as promised nine years ago,” said Sinclair, at the time. “Words are not enough.”The Conservative party campaign did not respond to a request for comment.jbarrera@aptn.calast_img read more

SNCLavalin consortium selected for multibilliondollar Montreal bridge contract

MONTREAL — The Canadian government has selected a consortium led by engineering and construction firm SNC-Lavalin to build the new, multibillion-dollar Champlain bridge connecting Montreal to communities on the south shore of the St. Lawrence River.Other members of the consortium include two Spanish-based companies, ACS Infrastructures and Dragados Canada, and an American company, Flatiron Construction.The bridge project, forecast to cost between $3 billion and $5 billion, is expected to open in December 2018. The exact cost will be disclosed when the contract is signed in July.SNC-Lavalin’s share of the contract is expected to range between $1 billion and $1.5 billion, said analyst Maxim Sytchev of Dundee Capital Markets.Ottawa awarded the contract to the so-called Signature Group even though partner SNC-Lavalin faces criminal corruption charges over activities in Libya.Sytchev said the biggest concern for SNC investors was whether the federal government would award a contract to a company that was investigated by the RCMP and could face a 10-year bidding ban on government contracts if convicted.“Today’s announcement suggests that the debarment fears were overblown,” he wrote in a report. “While the Champlain award does not fully assuage the legal fears, it is a strong vote of confidence for SNC’s ability to secure government work.”The consortium is responsible for the design, construction, financing, operation and maintenance of the structure.It beat bidding finalists St. Lawrence New Bridge Partnership, which included Stantec and the St. Lawrence Alliance, whose partners included Aecon Group and WSP Group.Work on the new bridge is expected to begin this summer.The federal government said the project will create 30,000 jobs.The Canadian Press read more

UN confirms establishment of Temporary Security Zone in Ethiopia and Eritrea

Briefing the UN Security Council on developments in the region, Under-Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Jean-Marie Guéhenno called the TSZ’s establishment, which was announced yesterday, an “important milestone in the peace process.”The two most pressing challenges now facing Eritrea and the international community were the restoration of Eritrean civil administration and the return of displaced persons to the TSZ, he said, noting that Eritrea was planning for the return of approximately 300,000 persons to the Zone within the next six to eight weeks. In that context, he pointed out the threat posed by the large quantities of landmines and unexploded ordnance in the areas of return. Limited demining activities were currently underway and mine awareness activities had been initiated throughout the area.The UN Mission in both countries (UNMEE) continued to work with the parties to resolve a number of outstanding issues, including requests that the southern boundary of the TSZ be adjusted, Mr. Guéhenno said. In that respect, he expressed UNMEE’s regret that Ethiopia had not communicated the full nature of its redeployment plans in the Irob area.The Under-Secretary-General stressed that the TSZ was temporary in nature and did not prejudge the final status of contested areas, which would be decided by the neutral Boundary Commission jointly set up by both countries. read more

Loonie closes flat amid higher commodities traders look to key US data

Loonie closes flat amid higher commodities; traders look to key U.S. data by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted May 12, 2014 9:38 am MDT TORONTO – The Canadian dollar closed little changed Monday amid rising commodity prices and ahead of key American economic data coming out this week.The loonie slipped 0.01 of a cent to 91.77 cents US after falling almost two-thirds of a US cent Friday in the wake of disappointing employment data for April.Traders will consider the April reading on U.S. retail sales on Tuesday as well as capacity utilization and industrial production data on Thursday and April housing starts numbers along with the May reading on consumer confidence from the University of Michigan on Friday.Together, they are expected to indicate that the U.S. economy will run ahead 3.8 per cent in the second quarter after likely contracting in the January-March period.It’s a light week for Canadian data. Statistics Canada releases the March report on manufacturing shipments on Thursday.On the commodity markets, July copper gained seven cents to US$3.15 a pound amid speculation that the Chinese government will take steps to support markets.China’s cabinet promised in an announcement late Friday to allow local governments to issue bonds and to streamline the approval process for initial public stock offerings, a move that was seen as widening market access.June gold bullion added $8.20 to US$1,295.80 and ounce, while June crude oil ran up 60 cents to US$100.59 a barrel.Meanwhile, the European Union added 13 more people and two enterprises to its Ukraine list for visa bans and asset freezes. The EU made the move Monday after pro-Russian insurgents claimed 89 per cent of those who cast ballots Sunday in eastern Ukraine’s Donetsk region and about 96 per cent of those who turned out in the neighbouring Luhansk region voted for sovereignty in referendums held on the weekend. It remained unclear whether the vote could lead to their secession. AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Job losses unavoidable at UTV Ireland as merger with TV3 is finalised

first_img By Cormac Fitzgerald 39 Comments Share78 Tweet Email2 Image: Mark Stedman UTV IRELAND HAS officially become part of TV3, with the loss of some jobs expected as a result.Irish commercial broadcaster TV3 – which is owned by Virgin Media – announced today that it has officially completed the acquisition of UTV Ireland.It is expected that there will be some jobs losses at the network as a result of the merger.UTV Ireland currently employs 61 permanent staff.In a statement today, Virgin Media announced a “restructuring programme” around consolidating the two businesses into one.It said it has 40 open job vacancies at TV3, “many of which it is hoped will be filled by current UTV Ireland staff”.“The proposed changes may result in unavoidable redundancies in UTV Ireland,” a Virgin Media Spokesperson said. But where possible, staff will be offered redeployment opportunities within TV3.The company will enter into a 30 day consultation period with effect from 5 December.UTV Ireland will become part will rebrand and become part of Virgin Media’s Irish broadcast operation by the end of January, joining TV3 and 3e.As a result of the merger, UTV Ireland will move from its base at Macken House in Dublin 1 to TV3 HQ in Ballymount.Today’s merger announcement was preceded by a confirmation last week that leading primetime soaps Emmerdale and Coronation Street will be returning to TV3 from UTV Ireland as a result.Redundancies Commenting on the merger, Seamus Dooley, Irish secretary of the National Union of Journalists, said that he hoped Virgin Media would honour its “moral obligation” and offer redundancy packages to UTV Ireland staff who lose their jobs as a result.“We would hope that the company would meet a moral obligation,” Dooley told TheJournal.ie.That anyone who loses their job as a result is offered a redundancy package or a transfer.Dooley said that the merger between the two broadcasters arose out of a transfer of shares and so employee rights aren’t protected under current laws.The law which protects employees when companies merge (known as TUPE) does not apply when a transfer of shares take place.It is unclear at this stage whether UTV Ireland employees who lose their jobs will be awarded redundancy packages following the merger.Dooley said the NUJ was calling on Virgin Media to “do the right thing” and ensure that redundancies are offered, and that anyone reemployed by TV3 doesn’t suffer diminished working conditions.“We call on employer to honour the agreement, do the decent thing and ensure that people that transfer over don’t suffer diminished conditions,” he said.When asked whether it would be providing redundancy packages to UTV Ireland staff, a spokesperson for Virgin Media said it will “not be disclosing any detail regarding our discussions with staff at UTV Ireland at this time”.Dooley encouraged any members of UTV Ireland to contact the NUJ if they had concerns.StruggleFrom its inception in January 2015, UTV Ireland struggled to compete for ratings with established broadcasters RTÉ and TV3.UTV Media which owned the station said last November it expected to lose €18.4 million on the station in its first year.That trading update came a month after it was announced the company was selling its entire TV operation to ITV, including its long-running Northern Ireland-based service.It was announced in July that the station was to be sold to Virgin Media for the price tag of about €10 million.Commenting today on the acquisition, Pat Kiely, managing director of TV3 said that it “strengthens independent television broadcasting in Ireland”.“We can now also play an increasingly bigger role in the development of Irish originated production and broadcasting.I am confident that our new three channel structure will drive the future potential and long term growth of the business.Read: UTV Ireland and TV3 will soon be part of one big company.

Enthusiasts embrace vintage toys records shared passions at show

first_imgSunday’s Vancouver Toy Junkies toy and record show was the first of its kind for sellers Paige and Ryan Ramey of Portland.There, with the other 110 vendor booths, they had for sale “Star Wars” action figures, GI Joes and Marvel superheroes — most, Paige said, from her husband’s collection.“We’re trying to rotate the collection down a little bit more,” she said, pausing to laugh. “To support the collecting habit.”The Rameys joined hundreds of the young and young at heart, selling and buying, for collecting or play, thousands of toys, records, games and other pop culture collectibles on offer at the show, held Sunday at WareHouse ’23.On offer were characters and spaceships from decades of “Star Trek” and “Star Wars.” Morphing-robot fans could find Transformers of all eras, and even some Gobots. One room of the packed event space had wall-to-wall model trains. Another was lined with boxes of record albums, comic books and concert and movie posters. In between all that, there was Barbie, Cabbage Patch, Popeye and myriad others.“A lot of neat people come here,” Paige Ramey said. “It’s fun to meet everybody and have a little mini-conversation about what they’re into. It’s a good experience.”Vendors might indulge a bit themselves, as well.“We did get a Chewie,” she said. “There’s a little bit for everybody.”Rob Williams, another vendor, usually works with vintage or antique toys. He gets to be a bit more specialized that way, which he likes.last_img read more

Possible boarding school may be great opportunity but stirs bad memories for

first_imgWrangell’s School Board, Borough Assembly and tribal government have all shown support for building a 400-bed boarding school on the former Wrangell Institute property in Southeast Alaska. For one family, the project is stirring up bad memories of the Institute, an earlier boarding school with a history of abusing students.Listen nowJim and Lilani LaBelle (Photo courtesy of Marleah Labelle, KSTK – Wrangell)As an Alaska Native child living in Fairbanks in the ‘50s, Jim LaBelle wasn’t the most likely candidate to be sent to the Wrangell Institute. LaBelle thinks it was his troubled family life that landed him there.“My younger brother and I were taken to the Fairbanks Airport in 1955 by our mother with an apology saying we had to go to the school,”LaBelle said.LaBelle, who now lives in Anchorage, said his father passed away when he was 6, leaving him under the care of his alcoholic mother.“I think I was 8 years old then, and my brother was 6. When we got to the airport in Fairbanks, we were quickly tagged with a yellow nametag with a metal twisty tie on it that had our name, our destination, our flights,” LaBelle said.The Institute, which opened in 1932, was one of two Bureau of Indian Affairs schools in the state. Students came from communities all over the state such as Nome, Barrow and Tok.LaBelle said once he and his classmates arrived at the school, their heads were shaved. They were told in English to get into large, open-room showers. Staff scrubbed the children who could not bathe themselves. LaBelle said many children were confused, as they only spoke their Native languages.“But we had each been given a set of numbers that were applied on our clothing, our sheets. We were given government issued clothes,” Labelle said. “It doesn’t help if you didn’t remember your number. That’s how we got our mail, got our clothing washed and returned back to us.”The BIA’s primary objective was to educate children who didn’t have schools in their villages.Dianne Hirshberg is director of the University of Alaska Anchorage’s Center for Alaska education policy research. She said others, such as LaBelle, were targeted for different reasons.“There were a lot of students that had gone there because they were orphans, or their parents weren’t able to take care of them because of things like the tuberculosis epidemic that hit Alaska in the ‘50s and ‘60s,” Hirshberg said.The abuses Hirshberg heard throughout her studies of U.S. Native boarding schools were numerous.“At one point I was told about the dorm staff getting the older children to beat the younger children for speaking their language. So now you’re starting to set up a culture of violence amongst the students, not just the teachers or dorm people abusing the students,” Hirshberg said. “To students being taken into rooms with adults and coming out crying without saying what happened.”LaBelle said getting caught speaking a Native language or any other offense could lead to the belt line, one of many abusive techniques used at the Institute.“Your fellow students and friends would line up on either side of you in this row, and you were forced to run or walk through this line of students who were told to use their belts on you,” LaBelle said. “I can say I had to go through that belt line a number of times as a kid, other kids did as well. I used to witness some of that. I remember having to use my belt on other kids as well.”But both LaBelle and Hirshberg say that didn’t happen to every child, and the conditions were better for some compared to home life in a village.“There were people who talked about going to boarding school, including the Wrangell Institute, the first the time they got eyeglasses or had hearing problems diagnosed,” Hirshberg said. “So for some students, it was both in terms of the actual education and in terms of the other aspects of living in a structured environment, it was an improvement over where they were coming from.”The BIA closed the Wrangell Institute in June of 1975, partially due to the Molly Hootch case. The lawsuit settlement forced the state to build schools in villages with eight students or more, decreasing the demand for boarding schools. The requirement was later increased to 10 students.Now, 36 years later, the Alaska Native Science and Engineering Program – or ANSEP – is working with the community of Wrangell to build another 400-bed boarding school on the former Institute property. ANSEP is an accelerated learning program based at the University of Alaska Anchorage campus that focuses on giving Alaska Native children a better shot at college success . ANSEP wants to expand from its curriculum of summer programs for children and support for UAA students.LaBelle’s 13-year-old granddaughter Lilani is one of 2,000 middle school-to-doctorate students enrolled in ANSEP’s current curriculum. She attended one of their summer camps earlier this year.“My favorite part was probably making new friends. I also like making the computer. I thought that was really, really cool,” Lilani said.Lilani said she enjoyed ANSEP’s challenging curriculum because the other kids were just as excited as she was to participate. She said she’s going back again next year.“It’s not like going to science class and having a few people wanting to participate. They all want to be there, and they are all really smart. It makes it a lot easier and a lot more fun,” Lilani said . “Next year, I’m going to go to the acceleration academy for five weeks and start taking college courses.”Lilani said she would be interested in attending an ANSEP-style high school. Lilani’s mother Marleah LaBelle and her grandfather agree it could be a great opportunity. But, both say the family’s history with the Institute property would make the decision for Lilani to attend the school a difficult one.“Absolutely yea. It would be hard, yea. I believe in ANSEP. It’s an incredible program. It’s really about creating their future and creating opportunities for them that may not have existed before. It certainly wouldn’t be without some strong emotions,” Marleah said.She said it could be a healing process for people such as her father.“Maybe this could be an opportunity to have more healing, more awareness. It could be a positive thing for the Alaska Native community,” Marleah said.ANSEP is starting its first high school program in the Matanuska-Susitna school district this fall. Wrangell School Superintendent Patrick Mayer is leading a committee of borough and school officials as the process moves forward. If the boarding school is built, Mayer said it will be part of Wrangell’s district. He said it will learn from the Mat-Su school and include the Native community in the planning process.last_img read more

ACC fails to prove graft charges against Khaleda

first_imgBNP chairperson and former prime minister Khaleda Zia appears before a Dhaka court in a graft case against her on Tuesday. Photo: BNPThe Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) has not been able to prove the allegations brought against Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) chairperson Khaleda Zia with the evidences they presented at the court, claimed Khaleda Zia’s lawyer Abdur Rezzak Khan on Tuesday.“There is no substance in the lawsuit. ACC couldn’t prove the charges brought against Khaleda Zia with all the evidences it presented at the court,” he said after placing the third day’s arguments in favour of the former prime minister, Khaleda Zia, in the Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.Abdur Rezzak Khan presented his arguments before the Special Judges Court-5 on Alia Madrasa ground in old Dhaka around 3:45pm on Tuesday.ACC lawyer Mosharraf Hossain Kajal, talking to the media, claimed that ACC has successfully proved the charges against Khaleda Zia to be true.“We plead to the court for the highest punishment of Khaleda Zia,” Kajal said.BNP standing committee member Moudud Ahmed came up with a dissent.“This is a political case. None of the 32 witnesses of ACC could say Khaleda Zia misused power when she was the prime minister,” Moudud told newsmen after the court proceedings had ended in the afternoon.“The case was filed just to harass her. We hope Khaleda Zia will be acquitted from the charges in the case,” added the former law minister of the BNP government.BNP chairperson Khaleda Zia appeared before the court at 11:24am and left around 4:00pm.last_img read more

7 arrested in raids over deadly Westminster attack

first_imgThe British Metropolitan Police’s Acting Deputy Commissioner, and Head of Counter Terrorism, Mark Rowley addresses the media outside New Scotland Yard in central London. Photo: AFPBritish police arrested seven people in armed raids Thursday linked to the deadly “Islamist-related” attacks the day before on the symbol of the country’s democracy.Britain’s top anti-terror officer Mark Rowley also said police have revised down the number of victims from Wednesday’s rampage to three from four. Some 40 people were wounded.“We have searched six addresses and made seven arrests,” Britain’s top anti-terror officer Mark Rowley told reporters in London.He said the raids included locations in London and the central city of Birmingham.Defiant British MPs meanwhile vowed to return to work as normal after the lightning attack on the iconic parliament building in the shadow of Big Ben.Authorities worked around the clock to piece together what happened when carnage was sown in the heart of London as the attacker ran down several pedestrians on nearby Westminster Bridge then charged at a policeman at the parliament gates, stabbing him to death with a large knife.Armed officers shot the attacker dead but not before he had killed two members of the public and the 48-year policeman guarding the seat of British political power in the deadliest attack in the country since 2005.Press Association news agency photos believed to be of the attacker lying on an ambulance stretcher showed a burly man wearing black clothes and a beard.Other pictures showed two people being treated on the ground inside the vehicle entrance gates of parliament, with a knife visible on the cobblestones, while three shots were heard ringing out on video footage as terrified passers-by fled.British lawmaker Mary Creagh told AFP there was “a real sense of panic” as the attack unfolded and a doctor at nearby St Thomas’ Hospital said they were treating people with “catastrophic” injuries.Sick and depravedPrime Minister Theresa May described the attack as “sick and depraved” in a defiant address in which she affirmed parliament would meet as normal on Thursday.Standing outside her Downing Street residence after an emergency cabinet meeting, May said Britain’s alert level would remain unchanged at level four, or “severe”.“We will all move forward together, never giving in to terror and never allowing the voices of hate and evil to drive us apart,” said May, dressed in black.The prime minister was in parliament at the time of the attack and was ushered away in a silver car as gunfire rang out.‘Islamist-related terrorism’Rowley said on Wednesday police suspected they were dealing with “Islamist-related terrorism,” adding that investigators believed they knew the assailant’s identity.Queen Elizabeth II postponed her appearance on Thursday to open the new headquarters of London’s Metropolitan Police, where the force’s flag flew at half-mast following the attack.The attack came a year to the day after Islamic State jihadists killed 32 people in twin bomb attacks in Brussels and after a series of deadly assaults in Europe that had spared Britain—until Wednesday.Parliament was locked down for several hours and police evacuated hundreds of MPs and visitors to nearby Westminster Abbey and the Metropolitan Police headquarters.An air ambulance flew in and police cordoned off a large area, while tourists on the London Eye, a popular visitor attraction, were left dangling up to 135 metres (443 feet) in the air for more than an hour during the attack.“I saw three bodies lying on the ground and a whole lot of police. It was pretty terrifying,” said Jack Hutchinson, 16, from the United States, who was stranded on the observation wheel with his parents.Foreign Office minister Tobias Ellwood, whose brother Jonathan was killed in the 2002 Bali bombing, was pictured with his face smeared with blood helping to give first aid to the fatally wounded police officer.‘Terror carnage at Westminster’The worst previous attack in London was in 2005 when four British suicide bombers inspired by Al-Qaeda targeted the transport system, killing 52 people.Britain’s last terror attack was last year’s assassination of MP Jo Cox by a pro-Nazi sympathiser in her constituency in northern England.Britain’s allies reacted with shock and vowed to stand with London in the fight against terror while lights on the Eiffel Tower in Paris were switched off at midnight in solidarity with victims of the attack.US President Donald Trump and French President Francois Hollande both spoke to May and Chancellor Angela Merkel said Germany stood with Britons “against all forms of terrorism”.“Spoke to UK Prime Minister Theresa May today to offer condolences on the terrorist attack in London,” Trump tweeted.The incident dominated Britain’s front pages, with The Mirror describing it as an “attack on democracy” while London’s Evening Standard carried the headline “Terror carnage at Westminster”.International victimsSeveral international tourists visiting one of London’s most iconic sights were caught up in the violence.Five South Korean tourists were wounded, Seoul’s foreign ministry said, while the Romanian government said two of its citizens were also injured.A Portuguese man was hurt, the country’s government said, while a seriously injured woman was rescued from the River Thames following the incident.French Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault said he would travel to London on Thursday morning to visit three French pupils on a school trip who were among those hurt.last_img read more

Trinamool Mahila Congress kicks off dharna against BJPs demand

first_imgKolkata: Chandrima Bhattacharya, president of Trinamool Mahila Congress, said on Friday that by raising the demand to declare all the booths in the state as ‘super sensitive’, BJP has actually insulted the people of Bengal, particularly the womenfolk.She was addressing a gathering assembled at the dharna organised by the women’s wing of the party on Rani Rashmoni Avenue on Friday. She said BJP has been insulting Bengal on one pretext or the other. “A caretaker government is being run in Delhi. The Law minister who had raised the demand to declare all the booths in Bengal as super sensitive, does not know the implication of the demand,” Bhattacharya said. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata Bose”There are 77,000 odd booths in Bengal and 50% of the voters are women. Then are we to believe that the women were engaged in fighting as well? It is an insult to the women in Bengal,” she added. She said BJP is circulating lies on social media to create confusion among the people. “Their leaders seldom speak the truth and they think that by creating confusion they can reap some benefit,” she said. Meanwhile, Shashi Panja, minister of state for Women and Child Welfare and Social Development, said over the past few years in Bengal election is being observed as a festival. “It is a festival of democracy. Before 2011 when there was Left Front rule, people could not cast their votes. But now the situation has changed and the voters come out and stand in long queues to exercise their rights. This is being reflected in the heavy turnout of voters,” said Panja.

BJP is trying to reap benefit by creating confusion among the people.” Panja said BJP has destroyed the sanctity of the institutions in the country set up by the Indian Constitution. “For 42 seats in Lok Sabha, there will be a seven phase election in Bengal.

Mice treated with the PTP-sigma inhibitor displayed rapid recovery of blood cells (purple, right). Credit: UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center/Nature Communications May 11, 2017 — Accuray Inc. announced that studies on the clinical use of the CyberKnife System continue to demonstrate its benefits across a wide range of cancer indications and stages in the cancer treatment journey. More than 50 studies were presented during poster and oral sessions at the 36th Annual European Society for Radiotherapy & Oncology (ESTRO) Meeting in Vienna, Austria, May 5 – 9, 2017. Some of the studies presented show long-term efficacy and safety with median follow-up exceeding five years.One group of studies looked at outcomes when the CyberKnife System was used to deliver stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) during primary cases:Safety, efficacy and quality of life (QOL) outcomes were reported for 309 patients with low- or intermediate-risk prostate cancer receiving SBRT administered with the CyberKnife System. The study showed cancer control was excellent in both risk groups with 97 percent of patients free from recurrence at five years. Transient decreases in bowel and urinary QOL were observed, but returned to baseline. Twenty-one U.S. hospitals participated in this prospective study including Swedish Cancer Institute in Seattle and Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center in Boston;A study evaluated the long-term results of CyberKnife prostate SBRT delivered either on consecutive days or every other day. The treatment was well-tolerated with high rates of five-year biochemical relapse-free survival (BRFS). Low rates of toxicity were unaffected by the treatment schedule. The research was conducted at the Hacettepe University in Ankara, Turkey; andLong-term results of another study conducted on 329 patients with low- and intermediate-risk prostate cancer revealed that extreme hypofractionated radiotherapy delivered with the CyberKnife System is well tolerated and safe with comparable late toxicity as other treatment modalities. Clinicians of the Erasmus MC Cancer Institute, in Rotterdam (The Netherlands) conducted the study.Another group of studies examined the applications of the CyberKnife System for recurrent disease:Although re-irradiation of recurrent diseases can be challenging in clinical practice, four European studies confirmed its feasibility in prostate and rectal cancer, as well as in recurrent high-grade gliomas. These studies concluded that re-irradiation with the CyberKnife System is well-tolerated and effective in controlling local recurring disease;A study of CyberKnife SBRT for oligorecurrent liver disease showed treatment was well-tolerated and resulted in favorable survival data. Clinicians at three European hospitals conducted the research; andA study evaluated the efficacy and toxicity of single-fraction SBRT for isolated nodal failure in prostate cancer patients, after primary surgical or radiation treatment. Treatment with the CyberKnife System provided excellent tolerability and promising biochemical control at 13 months’ follow-up. Research was conducted at three Italian hospitals.A third group of studies assessed the impact of the CyberKnife System for metastatic disease:A study of patients with solitary extracranial metastases from gynecologic malignancies demonstrated that SBRT delivered with the CyberKnife System is well-tolerated and highly effective. An excellent five-year local control of 93.7 percent was achieved in patients with classical ovarian and uterine primary tumors. Research was conducted at Georgetown University Hospital in Washington, D.C.Another study evaluated 206 patients with 326 inoperable pulmonary oligometastases, from colorectal tumors, lung cancers, melanoma, sarcoma, breast carcinoma and from other sites, treated with SBRT. This long-term follow-up study showed good local control (83 percent at two years and 73 percent at five years) and overall survival (Two-, three- and five-year OS rates were 63, 47 and 30 percent, respectively), as well as low rates of serious toxicity. Research was conducted at Erasmus MC-Daniel den Hoed Cancer Center in Rotterdam (The Netherlands);New studies reinforce previous data demonstrating intracranial and extracranial treatments delivered using the CyberKnife System InCise Multileaf Collimator result in comparable target coverage and organ-at-risk sparing to the Iris Collimator, while significantly reducing treatment times (15 to 47 percent reduction compared to Iris plans depending on tumor type). Research was conducted at six European hospitals; andThe first study to use three-dimensional performance analysis of the Synchrony Respiratory Tracking System found it successfully tracks lung tumors regardless of the amplitude of movement. Research was conducted at Hacettepe University in Ankara, Turkey.The CyberKnife System was designed to deliver treatment beams of different size and shape from hundreds of non-coplanar, isocentric or non-isocentric angles around the patient, enabling the clinician to deliver high-quality treatment plans with extreme precision, sparing surrounding healthy tissue and structures. The system’s tracking capabilities eliminate the need for gating techniques and restrictive head frames, providing greater comfort for the patient.For more information: www.accuray.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content Image courtesy of Imago Systems Catalyst PT image courtesy of C-RAD News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more News | Stereotactic Body Radiation Therapy (SBRT) | May 11, 2017 New Data Presented at ESTRO 36 Demonstrate Various Applications of the CyberKnife System Studies show the system provides excellent outcomes throughout the cancer treatment journey, from primary cases to recurrence and metastatic disease News | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 Mevion and C-RAD Release Integration for Improved Proton Therapy Treatment Quality Mevion Medical Systems and C-RAD announced the integration between the C-RAD Catalyst PT and the Mevion S250i proton… read more News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.

Reporters in conflict zones appeal for justice at UN

first_imgNEW YORK – Journalists seized a rare chance Wednesday to plead for greater U.N. Security Council protection as the world media death toll mounts amid increased coverage of Syria and other conflicts.AFP’s prize-winning Somalia correspondent Mustafa Haji Abdinur told the 15 council ambassadors he was a “dead man walking” because of the dangers he faces covering his own country.Abdinur was one of four reporters to address the Security Council on Wednesday as the bullet-ridden body of crime reporter Alberto López Bello was found in the Mexican city of Oaxaca.“When a journalist is killed, the news dies too,” Abdinur said as he called for justice for the almost 1,000 journalists killed around the world since 1992.The vast majority of the deaths have gone unpunished.López Bello adds to a toll of more than 100 Mexican journalists killed or missing since 2000.The New York-based Committee to Protect Journalists (CPJ) estimates that nearly 30 journalists have been murdered around the world so far this year from Russia to Brazil.About 100 journalists and bloggers have been killed in Syria since the start of the conflict there in March 2011.Eighteen reporters were killed in Somalia in 2012, and Abdinur spoke barely a week after Liban Abdulahi Farah, a reporter for the Kalsan satellite television station, became the latest Somali media victim.“Like so many others in my profession, on the dusty streets of Mogadishu, they call me ‘a dead man walking,” Abdinur, winner of a CPJ International Press Freedom Award in 2009, told the council.“My story is not unique. I am here today simply because I am lucky, because the gunmen that have killed so many of my colleagues, my friends, have not yet found me,” he added.Abdinur said a security official could have a journalist thrown in prison because he does not like a story, and said he himself would face greater risks for having spoken at the Security Council.“There is a sense of immunity in killing a journalist,” said Ghaith Abdul Ahad, an Iraqi correspondent for British newspaper The Guardian.“It is one bullet and he will be killed and no one will be questioned after that bullet,” added Abdul Ahad, who was held by the Taliban while working in Afghanistan and by the Libyan Army in 2012.Abdul Ahad said journalists in conflict zones should be considered “part of a humanitarian effort to tell a story.”“Many of you hate us by the way,” Abdul Ahad told surprised envoys. “It is a sign that we are doing our job properly.”“There has to be some sort of balance,” he said. “Let us be there. Kind of treat us as human beings. Just don’t kill us.”U.N. Deputy Secretary General Jan Eliasson told the meeting that journalists are the “lifeblood” of democracy.He said it is “shocking” that 90 percent of murders of journalists go unpunished.Richard Engel, a correspondent for U.S. television channel NBC who was kidnapped in Syria last year, also spoke, and Kathleen Carroll of the Associated Press told of the agency’s 31 journalists killed while working.It was the first debate on journalism at the Security Council since it passed a resolution on journalism, proposed by France and Greece, in 2006.Many western envoys spoke up for journalists’ rights.“Journalists are literally our eyes and ears in every corner of the world,” said acting U.S. Ambassador Rosemary DiCarlo.The United States, which is serving as council president for July, organized the meeting.“Impunity for violence against journalists must end,” she added.“This council has an obligation to help protect those who provide us with so much vital information.”Gerard Araud, France’s U.N. ambassador, said “everyone can see that the first reflex of the enemies of freedom is to muzzle the press,” as he highlighted the case of two French reporters abducted in Syria.Russia’s U.N. envoy Vitaly Churkin said that journalism had become “one of the most dangerous professions” but that reporters should not take “unjustified risks.”“Excessive pursuit of a scoop to the detriment of common sense in armed conflict can be highly dangerous,” said the Russian representative.
