Brazeau experiment gone wrong comment likely revealed true intentions behind appointment Senator

first_img(Conservative Senator Marjory LeBreton said embattled Algonquin Senator Patrick Brazeau was “an experiment gone wrong.”)By Jorge Barrera APTN National NewsConservative Senator Marjory LeBreton needs to clarify what she meant when she said embattled Algonquin Senator Patrick Brazeau was “an experiment gone wrong” given recent revelations the Canadian government experimented on First Nation people during the Indian residential school era, according to a Liberal First Nation Senator.In an interview with Global News last week, LeBreton said Brazeau was “just a human tragedy,” that he “could have done great work for his people,” and that he was “an experiment gone wrong.”Senator Lillian Dyck said LeBreton’s choice of words was troubling.“Given the recent media attention about unethical experiments done on First Nation children and adults in residential schools and TB sanatoriums, it was a poor choice of words,” said Dyck. “Perhaps it was a slip of the tongue revealing what she was really thinking, that the Harper government’s experiment in using Brazeau to divide and conquer Aboriginals went wrong.”The Canadian government conducted nutritional experiments on First Nations adults and children and experimented with a controversial tuberculosis vaccine on First Nations infants in the 1930s, 40s and 50s, historical documents show.Brazeau, who was appointed by Prime Minister Stephen Harper, was banished from the Conservative caucus after he was charged with assault and sexual assault against a woman who shared his residence. His next court date is scheduled for October.Brazeau was also been caught in the housing allowance and expense scandal that has engulfed Senators Mike Duffy and Pamela Wallin, who were both also appointed by Harper. Mac Harb, who was appointed by former prime minister Jean Chretien, recently resigned his Senate seat after paying back about $231,000 in living and traveling expenses.The RCMP is currently investigating Duffy, Brazeau, Harb over their expense claims and is reviewing Wallin’s file.Brazeau’s office said he would not be responding to LeBreton’s statements.LeBreton’s office said she was in the midst of moving locations and would not be available speak to APTN National News about the issue. Instead, a staffer in LeBreton’s office said the Senator already admitted she used the wrong words in an interview last week with CTV. Her office staffer, however, refused to issue a similar statement to APTN National News.LeBreton told CTV that her referral to Brazeau as “an experiment” was an “unfortunate choice of words” and that his appointment by Harper was the result of “good intentions gone awry.”LeBreton is moving offices because she stepped down as Senate majority leader this past summer. She also gave up her seat at the federal cabinet table. She played a key role as government defender when the Senate scandal exploded with the revelation Harper’s former chief of staff Nigel Wright cut a $90,000 cheque to cover Duffy’s expenses.The RCMP is also probing that matter.Dyck said Harper chose Brazeau to push through his government’s agenda on First Nation people and attack the existing First Nation leadership.“Harper’s experiment of appointing Brazeau to attack leaders of Aboriginal organizations…went wrong, because Brazeau did not have a strong base of supporters and little or no credibility on the Aboriginal file,” she said.jbarrera@aptn.ca@JorgeBarreralast_img read more

By David FriendTORONTO — The Toronto stock market shifted lower after the open on Monday as concerns about the global economy led to weakness across nearly every sector.The S&P/TSX composite index backed off 29.82 points to 11,495.08, as worries from Europe translated overseas.The Canadian dollar dropped 0.37 of a cent to 97.46 cents US.The outcome of the Greek election, which had provided a brief streak of optimism, quickly gave way to another round of concern about Spain’s debt problems.Commodities dropped on the worries, with the July crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange down $1.50 at US$82.53 a barrel.Gold bullion dropped $5.50 to US$1,622.60 an ounce while July copper edged up one cent to US$3.40 a pound.On Wall Street, the Dow Jones industrial average was off 50.59 points at 12,716.58.

Snowy Saturday in Hamilton causes traffic troubles

It is a winter wonderland for most of the region, and while many are happy that the snow has come just in time for Christmas, it has also caused issues on the roads.Driving in Hamilton today was a challenge for many.Side streets had not yet been plowed and even priority roads that were cleared were slick as the snow continued to fall.At the collision reporting centre, an employee says she has lost count of how many crashes have been reported today, and says its easily more than double what they normally see but could not give an exact number.Some people reporting collisions here at the central station say the road conditions are very slippery.The city of Hamilton says snow clearing crews have been working non-stop plowing and salting roads.But it wasn’t just driving that was a challenge. Those walking or taking the bus also struggled.All the hassle of a snow fall had some dreaming of warmer temperatures, while others say the holiday spirit has them enjoying the white stuff. read more

US wholesalers cut stockpiles clearing way for new orders

WASHINGTON – U.S. wholesale businesses cut back their stockpiles while sales rose in October. That’s a trend that could boost demand for factory goods in the months ahead.The Commerce Department says that wholesale inventories fell 0.4 per cent, the largest drop in eight months. Sales rose 1.4 per cent.Higher sales and a drop in inventories are good signs that consumers and businesses are spending more, and that wholesalers are clearing out a backlog of goods. That suggests they will have to order more goods to meet future demand.Wholesalers of computer products, pharmaceuticals, and steel and other metals led the cutbacks. Many firms piled up too many goods and have spent much of this year reducing their new orders, which has slowed factory output.

Mens basketball Ohio State rides hot start to 8863 victory in exhibition

Ohio State sophomore center Micah Potter finishes on a dunk with 6:19 remaining in the first half of Ohio State’s 88-63 win over Wooster. Credit: Jacob Myers | Managing EditorOhio State’s men’s basketball team defeated Wooster 88-63 in an exhibition game in head coach Chris Holtmann’s inaugural game as the Buckeyes’ head coach Sunday at the Schottenstein Center.Redshirt junior forward Keita Bates-Diop led the Buckeyes in both points and rebounds, 17 and nine, respectively, as the Fighting Scots had no answer for the length and ability of the redshirt junior forward. Senior forward Jae’Sean Tate set the tone defensively by recording four steals to go with his 10 points and five rebounds.Holtmann said Bates-Diop might still be shaking off some rust after recovering from a fractured leg that forced him to redshirt last season, but looks further along than he expected. The new coach added that solid play from the leaders of the team is essential to success.“(Bates-Diop) and (Tate) are gonna need to be consistently very good for us to have a chance to close games out,” Holtmann said.The Buckeyes imposed their will, jumping out to a 12-0 lead to start the game. Ohio State appeared physically superior to Wooster by soaring for rebounds beyond the reach of the Fighting Scots and scoring through contact as the Buckeyes out-rebounded the Fighting Scots 46-44.Wooster broke the shutout with 14:57 remaining in the first half on a 3-pointer by junior guard Simon Texidor as the Fighting Scots rode a 9-2 run to cut the lead to 14-9.Potter sparked the home crowd and his teammates when he corralled a loose ball, nimbly crossed over behind his back and finished with a powerful two-handed dunk with 6:19 remaining in the first half. Potter finished the game with 10 points and five rebounds over his 18 minutes on the court.Ohio State ended the first half on a 13-6 run.Ohio State struggled from the charity stripe early, but began to turn it around towards the end, eventually finishing 27-for-37 from the line. Free throws represented an area the Buckeyes struggled with last season when they finished No. 249 in the country, connecting on only 68.2 percent of attempts.Four newcomers — freshmen Musa Jallow, Kyle Young and Kaleb Wesson and redshirt senior Andrew Dakich — saw their first action in Scarlet and Gray with 14:15 remaining in the first half. Young and Jallow were slow to get started in the game, but both finished with six points. Wesson finished with 16 points and seven rebounds, both second on the team to Bates-Diop.The freshmen admitted to having butterflies before the game, but said they calmed down as the game progressed.“You just try to find your flow within the team and just try to get your feet wet at the beginning,” Jallow said. “And then once you get going and get a good lather going, then you just settle in and play.”Despite leading 39-22 at halftime, Ohio State struggled shooting beyond the 3-point line (0-for-11 in the first half). Ohio State continued its issues from beyond the arc for the remainder of the game as it finished 3-for-24 in 3-point attempts. Besides the 3-point shooting of Texidor (5-for-9), Wooster also had difficulty shooting from distance as the rest of the team shot 5-for-23 from beyond the arc.Four-and-a-half minutes into the second half, Bates-Diop hit Ohio State’s first 3-pointer of the game. Redshirt senior guard Kam Williams followed his teammates lead by connecting on a 3-pointer of his own on the next possession to give the Buckeyes a 54-33 lead.The Buckeyes starting lineup featured junior C.J. Jackson at point guard, Williams at shooting guard, Bates-Diop and Tate at the forward positions, and Potter at center.Following the victory, Kaleb Wesson answered a question regarding Holtmann’s message to the team.“Just keep your head down and keep working,” Wesson recalled. “Celebrate it for now, but then tomorrow we’re right back at it — just get right back in the gym and work.”Although Ohio State won, Holtmann said the Fighting Scots exposed the Buckeyes by beating them to loose balls and preventing them from finishing through contact.“We’ve got a long way to go and we are very much a work-in-progress,” Holtmann said. “There were some good things that I think we can build off of, but we’re going to need to be a lot better moving forward.”The Buckeyes have a week to work before the regular season begins at 7 p.m. Friday at the Schottenstein Center against Robert Morris. read more

(Laura Kraegel, KUCB – Unalaska)Updated: 11:33 a.m. Listen NowTwo people are missing after a commercial fishing vessel sank near Unalaska Tuesday night, forcing crew members to abandon ship.Around 10 p.m., the U.S. Coast Guard received reports that the 117-foot Exito was taking on water north of Unalaska Bay.Petty Officer Meredith Manning said Air Station Kodiak sent a rescue helicopter crew to respond, while four vessels nearby volunteered to help.“One of the Good Samaritan vessels on-scene located three of the five crew members from the Exito and were able to take them onboard,” Manning said. “They’re transporting them to Dutch Harbor.”Meanwhile, the helicopter crew and remaining volunteer ships are still searching the area for the two missing crew members. The vessel ultimately sank four nautical miles north of Priest Rock, according to officials with the Marine Safety Detachment Unit in Dutch Harbor.Manning said it’s still unclear why the Exito began taking on water.Original StoryTwo people are missing after a boat sank near the mouth of Unalaska Bay.The M/V Exito sank four nautical miles north of Priest Rock, according to Lt.

President Trump Gets A Head Start On Shaping The Federal Courts

first_img Share Mark Wilson/Getty ImagesPresident Trump has a large number of judicial vacancies to fill, since Senate Republicans held up President Barack Obama’s nominees.President Trump is moving quickly to put his personal stamp on the federal courts.On Monday the president nominated 10 people for federal judgeships. Thanks to an unusually large number of vacancies on the bench, there could be many more to come.“This is just a down payment,” said John Malcolm of the Heritage Foundation. He noted there are more than 100 open seats on the federal district courts and appeals courts.“Starting with a Supreme Court vacancy, which has now been filed, President Trump certainly has a very good opportunity early on to have an impact on the federal bench,” Malcolm said.Indeed, Trump came into office with a chance to fill more than twice as many court vacancies as President Barack Obama had. That’s partly because for the last two years, the Republican-controlled Senate dragged its feet in confirming judges. The Senate confirmed only 20 of Obama’s judicial nominees during 2015 and 2016, less than a third the number that were confirmed in the last two years of the Reagan, Clinton and George W. Bush administrations.“Just as they held the Merrick Garland seat open on the Supreme Court, they also held open an awful lot of vacancies on the district courts and the courts of appeals,” said Russell Wheeler, who tracks judicial nominations at the Brookings Institution.At last month’s swearing-in ceremony for Supreme Court Justice Neil Gorsuch, Trump acknowledged that Senate stonewalling had given him a rare opportunity.“I especially want to express our gratitude to [Senate Republican Leader] Mitch McConnell for all that he did to make this achievement possible,” Trump said. “So thank you, Mitch.”The Heritage Foundation’s Malcolm cautions it wasn’t a risk-free strategy. Had Hillary Clinton won the election, she might now be packing the courts with a slate of more liberal judges.“So it took some guts and some daring on behalf of Sen. McConnell, and it paid off,” Malcolm said.Trump campaigned on the promise that he would appoint conservative judges to the bench — a key selling point for many Republican voters. He even released a list of potential candidates for the Supreme Court, which Malcolm and the Heritage Foundation had a hand in crafting.Two of the nominees announced Monday — Joan Larsen of the Michigan Supreme Court and David Stras of the Minnesota Supreme Court — are drawn from that list. Larsen was nominated to a seat on the federal appeals court in Cincinnati while Stras was tapped for the appellate court in St. Louis.All of the nominees appear to be cut from similar judicial cloth.“They are all highly regarded in conservative legal circles and by practitioners in the states where they reside,” Malcolm said.All presidents leave a mark on the courts, especially if they serve for two terms. But with so many early vacancies, Trump has a chance to accelerate his impact, quickly chipping away at the narrow Democratic advantage that Obama left on the federal bench.Wheeler says 51 percent of the current judges were appointed by Democrats, up from 36 percent on the appellate courts and 40 percent on the district courts when Obama took office.Partisan pedigree is not always predictive of how judges will rule. The Seattle judge who blocked Trump’s original travel ban, for example, is a George W. Bush appointee. But Trump has made no secret of the kind of judicial philosophy he’s looking for.“We can assume the Trump administration is going to continue to nominate judges, especially for courts of appeals, who have fairly strong conservative credentials,” Wheeler said. “A big variable is whether or not Democratic senators can put a brake on it.”Senate Democrats gave up the right to filibuster nominees for the lower courts. But there is still a tradition that nominees should not be confirmed over the objection of their home-state senator. Democratic senators from Michigan and Minnesota have promised to give close scrutiny to the nominations of Larsen and Stras, assuming that genteel tradition survives in today’s more rough-and-tumble Senate.Copyright 2017 NPR.

2D Imaging Devices Xray Equipment Market Worth 169 Billion by 2021

first_img News | Digital Radiography (DR) | June 28, 2019 Springfield Clinic Deploys 17 Carestream Digital X-ray Systems Springfield Clinic implemented 14 Carestream DRX-Evolu read more 2-D X-Ray Equipment: Market Shares, Strategy, and Forecasts, Worldwide, 2015 to 2021, the 2015 study, has 256 pages, 109 tables and figures. Worldwide 2-D X-ray equipment markets are increasingly diversified, poised to achieve significant growth as new technology breathes new life into a saturated market, forcing every facility to upgrade its existing x-ray equipment to have digital and therapeutic capability.According to the study, 2-D imaging devices include those used in cardiac X-ray, cath lab, angioplasty, mammogram, general radiology, portable X-ray, surgical c-arm and fluoroscopy suites X-ray equipment by sectors. Mammography and interventional radiology are among the growth segments in the market. Portable devices are gaining favor in many clinical areas.Consideration of the 2-D X-ray equipment market forecasts indicates that markets at $5 billion in 2014 will reach $16.9 billion by 2021. Growth comes as the aging of the population increases demand for diagnostic and therapeutic equipment, as the major underdeveloped regions, particularly China build out improved health care facilities, and as improved diagnostics and therapeutics available from the 2-D X-ray equipment create increased demand from clinicians for modern equipment.Any hospital that wishes to remain competitive needs to invest in new 2-D X-ray equipment. As patients become more conscious of the risks associated with radiation doses. They increasingly demand the lowest dose available and will shop around until they find a hospital that suits their needs. Clinicians and providers are the same way.Worldwide digital X-ray applications are implemented with different technologies. Portability has become a major market factor. Products are customized to fit the needs of the clinician end user. Price and geography play a major part in the market. They are positioned in the market by application.Growth is anticipated based on technological advances, government investment, aging population, increase in disease prevalence, and the increasing competition from larger numbers of systems being approved. X-ray technology is far less expensive and results in as much as 400 times less dosage to the patient than a CT scan.As hospital budgets remain constrained, hospital administrators prefer the workflow improvements brought by modern digital X-ray equipment. The high capital cost of MRI and CT scans work against further investment in those technologies. There is a significant installed base, the large capital outlays for MRI and CT have been made, so now the issue becomes efficacy and radiation dose to the patient. Imaging equipment investment works in favor of modern digital x-ray equipment that offers significant workflow improvements and significantly more clear images.Maximizing patient care by lowering the radiation dose and minimizing cost-of-ownership in working in favor of further investment in X-ray equipment. By improving workflow, modern digital x-ray systems improve the quality of care delivery.Many studies show that the CT equipment and MRI equipment is over used. Insurers are beginning to clamp down on this further driving investment in X-ray equipment.For more information: www.researchandmarkets.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Digital Radiography (DR) | July 25, 2019 Samsung Announces New iQuia Premium Digital Radiography Platform Samsung has announced iQuia, a new digital radiography (DR) platform of premium products and technologies that improves… read more Videos | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 VIDEO: Demonstration of the Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Radiographic Fluoroscopy System Shimadzu displayed the FluoroSpeed X1 conventional radiographic fluoroscopy (RF) system at the Association for Medica read more Advances in long-length digital radiography are creating opportunities for visualization during spinal surgery, as well as pre- and post-operatively.

The Retiree Effect on Homeownership

first_img June 8, 2016 698 Views in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, Market Studies, News Freddie Mac homeowners Retirees 2016-06-08 Staff Writer As older Americans enter into retirement age, they are pressed with the question of staying in their home, borrowing against their home, or opting out of homeownership for renting.Freddie Mac’s inaugural 55+ Survey  examined responses from nearly 6,000 homeowners and renters to determine their views on housing preferences, retirement plans, and financial concerns of Baby Boomers and older homeowners.The report found that 76 percent homeowners born before 1961 are confident they will have a financially comfortable retirement. Every demographic displayed confidence in their retirement: African-Americans (77 percent), Hispanics (64 percent), Asians (80 percent), homeowners who are currently working (74 percent), as well as homeowners earning less than $30,000 (55 percent).In addition, 59 percent of homeowners were “very satisfied” with their communities, Freddie Mac reported. Another 64 percent are satisfied with their current home and 54 percent with their quality of life.A majority of those surveyed indicated that homeownership makes financial sense for most Americans, the survey results showed. For people who are either married with children or between 35-49 years of age, older homeowners said that homeownership makes financial sense. Eighty-seven percent noted that homeownership makes sense for people over 55, married couples without children (85 percent), single people with children (79 percent), and single people without children (53 percent).”The overwhelming message of the Freddie Mac 55+ Survey is that homeownership works. The American Dream delivered greater financial stability and satisfaction to the homeowners who lived through every recession since the 1970s, including the housing crisis of 2008,” said Dave Lowman, EVP of Single-Family Business at Freddie Mac.Since most older homeowners are satisfied with their current home, this raises questions surrounding what plan of action they plan to take to continue residing there. With products like home equity lines of credit on the market (HELOCs) and reverse mortgages, retirees have options—if they can afford them.As a whole, the total balance of write-offs year-to-date in March for first mortgages, home equity lines of credit (HELOCs), and home equity loans is $9.5 billion in the first quarter of 2016, a nine-year low for the first quarter and a year-over-year drop of 22.7 percent, according to data from the April 2016 Equifax National Consumer Credit Trends Report.Outstanding HELOC loans totaled 11.0 million in March, down 3.2 percent, while the total balances outstanding on HELOCs  fell 3.9 percent in that same time to $489.9 billion. Equifax reported that The utilization rate on HELOCs has fallen below 50 percent for the first time since 2008.On the reverse mortgage front, data from ReverseMortgages.com and HUD showed that as of 2015, there are 56,363 reverse mortgages in the U.S. These borrowers are receiving $9.3 billion in financing, an $168,400 average principal limit, and a 3.38 percent average interest rate.Freddie Mac also found that while many over the age of 55 would prefer to age in their current home, nearly 40 percent said they would prefer to move at least one more time, and 70 percent of those said they are likely to purchase their next home. Lowman noted that this “will create significant opportunities and challenges for the industry for years to come.””The decisions the nation’s Baby Boomers and other older homeowners make will have an enormous impact on the demand for housing and new mortgage credit for the foreseeable future,” Lowman said. “Whether they buy new homes or decide to refinance and renovate their current ones, the size of this generation and the fact that they hold close to two-thirds, approximately $8 trillion, of the nation’s home equity makes it very important that we watch what they do.”center_img Share The Retiree Effect on Homeownershiplast_img read more
