Begich says hes no moper urges Native youth to persist

first_imgFormer U.S. senator Mark Begich spoke to the Elders and Youth Conference today, one of his biggest Alaskan audiences since he lost re-election and left office in January.Download AudioBegich urged the young attendees to participate in their communities, to vote and to stay positive. He drew on his own life for illustration.“A lot of people assume that somehow I was born and then I was in public office. Just magically occurred. That is not the case,” he said. “I have won elections and I have lost elections. The question is: what do you do?”Begich recounted his early beginnings in civic life, how he started a non-alcoholic teen nightclub to give Anchorage youth like himself something to do, and why he first ran for public office.“When I ran for Anchorage Assembly at the age of 26 … the reason I decided to run was not because I said to myself, ‘Geez, I want to be an assembly person,’” he said. “I ran because I wanted to do something for the community I lived in, that I felt it had already been good to me, at that young age, and I wanted to give something back.”If it bore some resemblance to a campaign speech, his spokeswoman, Rachel Barinbaum  says the ex-senator was on the agenda to discuss “Your Voice: Action, Advocacy and the 2015 Elders and Youth Resolutions,” with a request from the hosts to pitch the importance of voting.One of his key messages is to remain tenacious and not take rejection as the final word.“When I ran for mayor and lost twice before winning. It wasn’t sitting around moping and saying, ‘Well the sky has fallen. I lost an election. My life is over.’ No. Got right back up,” Begich told the audience. “As I said earlier: Persistence. Positive attitude. Know you can make a difference.”After leaving the Senate, Begich formed a consulting group and signed on with a D.C. lobbying firm to be a strategic advisor. He has also worked as an advisor for the law firm Sonosky Chambers and on a campaign to kill the Iran nuclear deal.Begich has been repeatedly asked if he is considering a run against Sen. Lisa Murkowski, or maybe Congressman Don Young. He hasn’t announced any future political plans.Young and Sen. Dan Sullivan, the man who unseated Begich, are due to address the AFN convention on Thursday, followed by Murkowski on Friday.last_img read more

Commercial fishing to be opened for Stikine River kings

first_imgThis year’s run of King salmon on the Stikine River is projected to be small but still large enough for limited commercial fishing near Petersburg.Download AudioADF&G Area Management Biologist, Troy Thynes, looks at historical run data of Stikine River kings in his Petersburg office. (Photo by Angela Denning, KFSK – Petersburg)The Stikine is a transboundary river that runs from near Wrangell into Canada so the two countries share the king salmon harvest. Most of the kings are spawning at the Taltan River just over a hundred miles from the Stikine’s mouth.Managers on both sides of the border want there to be enough kings to spawn for future years and, if possible, allow for subsistence, commercial and sport fishing.Like king salmon in many other parts of Alaska, the Stikine run has diminished over the past decade. The low point was in 2009 when the Stikine saw only 16,000 kings.But numbers have improved slightly in recent years, and in 2012, there were enough kings for a limited commercial opening. And that’s the same thing this year. The projected run for this year is 33,900 fish. Canada is allowed to harvest 4,700; the U.S. 1,100.The state has called an opening for commercial troll fishing and drift gill netting in nearby District 8 on May 2. Troll fishing will open at about midnight and gill netting at 8 a.m. They will be 24 hour openings.Troy Thynes is the Area Management Biologist for the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.“The allowable catch is on the smaller side so it’s something that we’re going to have to watch closely,” Thynes said. “We’re probably looking at limited openings in the drift gill net fishery for one day a week with possible area restrictions until we get our in-season forecast so probably for three weeks or so and it depends on how much effort we have.”Historically, about 30 boats start the season in the drift gill net fishery and more participate as it progresses. In the peak years, like in 2006, there were upwards of 110 boats. That year saw the largest run on record at 90,000 kings, so the commercial openings were more generous. Records have been kept on the Stikine River since the late 70s.This year, fishing will be limited to only areas past the flats at mouth of the river. The king estimate could change as the run actually happens.“Generally the peak of the Stikine River king salmon run is through the marine waters through salt waters off the flats is the last week of May, first week of June,” said Thynes.If the in-season numbers are similar to the preseason ones, then Alaska’s allowable harvest will jump up from 1,100 to 3,600 fish. Managers get in-season data through a joint tagging project with Canada, which is a mark and recapture program. The tagging will start in May, and Thynes said it takes fishermen participation to help make it work.“Occasionally, those fish will back out of the river and get caught in the various fisheries,” Thynes said. “They can keep those fish no problem keeping them, if they can return the tag to port samplers or fish and game office, that’s going to help us in our assessment projects. And especially if they catch a fish with a radio tag. If they can return those to Fish and Game and we can reuse those tags. They’re pretty expensive.”Sport fishermen will also have more opportunity this year. Thynes said sport fishing will be liberalized starting May 1.“And that’s part of the U.S. having an allowable catch,” said Thynes. “So that’s kind of the trigger for them. If the U.S. has an allowable catch then the sport fishery can be liberalized just in District 8.”Also harvested in District 8 will be king salmon from hatcheries at Anita Bay and Crystal Lake. They typically run a little later in May.last_img read more

Fairbanks Four may receive dividends for 18 years of wrongful imprisonment

first_imgA Fairbanks Four banner at the 2015 Alaska Federation of Natives Conference. Two measures moving through the Alaska House would compensate the four men for the 18 years spent in prison. (Photo by Mikko Wilson/KTOO)It took the work of journalists, lawyers, tribal leaders and citizens to release the Fairbanks Four after they wrongfully convicted on a murder charge and other serious crimes in 1997.Now, an effort is underway to compensate the men for the 18 years they spent in prison in the form of two state House measures.Listen nowThese bills would apply to others who are freed after a wrongful imprisonment, but the Fairbanks Four are the only ones who meet the conditions right now.On Dec. 17, 2015, hundreds gathered at the Chief David Salmon Tribal Hall in Fairbanks to celebrate the release of the Fairbanks Four. That night three of the four men were released. The fourth, Marvin Roberts, was released on parole the summer before.Alaska Innocence Project Director Bill Oberly (L) and Marvin Roberts (R) at the Alaska Federation of NativesAttorney Bill Oberly led the effort to free the Fairbanks Four. After it was all over, he became involved in an effort to give Permanent Fund dividends back to the four men for the time they spent behind bars.“Don’t let the door hit ya’ in the rear end on the way out is all they got for their 18 years of wrongful conviction,” Oberly said. “It seems only fair that the dividends that were taken away from them wrongfully should be provided to them and give them a little monetary help trying to restart their lives.”Roberts wrote a Facebook post about what he thinks of the bill.“It’s basically giving a first-hand account of what my first night in prison was like,” Roberts said. “It was difficult for me to write it, so it would be more difficult for me to read it to you (KTOO). I actually cried when I wrote certain parts of the story, ‘cause that’s how much, um, that’s how deep that wound is.”The post is long, but here is a snippet:“I told the Guard that I wasn’t supposed to be in there, that I was innocent. Nobody heard me. I layed down on that torn mattress and had sad thoughts. Who could sleep in a situation like that? I prayed and asked God to get me out … please get me out. I prayed and still my spirit was breaking. I was hurting real bad. I don’t know when I started crying or how long it lasted. My world was upside down. I’d love to say I was released the next day and that was that. No, this is not a happy ending. We spent over 18 years trapped in that nightmare.”Roberts goes on to thank his supporters, and then he asks for people to please call their representatives to support two bills: One that would give them their dividends for the years they were wrongfully imprisoned (House Bill 127) and another that goes even further, requiring the state to pay $50,000 for each year of wrongful imprisonment, with a cap of $2 million (House Bill 118).I asked Roberts what the bills would mean for him, if they pass.“I realize now after being away for so long how valuable being with family is and, receiving all those back dividends would … I’d just be so happy. I’d be able to see my family. I’d be able to maybe start my own business. I’d be able to stay ahead of my bills. I mean, it would help out a lot.” he said, adding that he was staring at his 6-month-old daughter as he spoke.Roberts lives in Fairbanks. He has two jobs — he works at a company that makes and installs granite counter tops during the week and delivers pizza on the weekends.I asked him, “Do you think that this is part of carrying out justice?”“I don’t really know too much about all of that. All I know is, it would help us a lot,” Roberts said.Oberly, who pushed to free the Fairbanks Four, has a stronger opinion.“It is the right thing to do,” Oberly said. “These men should have gotten it because they shouldn’t have been in prison, so it’s the right thing to do at this point.”Last year, Oberly’s effort to get dividends paid to the Fairbanks Four didn’t really go anywhere. He’s hopeful that this year will be different.last_img read more

The Gifted Drops New Trailer at SDCC

first_img A Tale of Two Wonder WomenSDCC Announcement: IDW Games Brings 90s Nick to Life Stay on target With the critical acclaim and success of FX’s Legion series, all eyes have been on their next X-Men based series premiering on October 2nd, The Gifted. The SDCC panel dedicated to The Gifted dropped a brand new trailer in excess of three minutes giving the lucky attendees a lot to take in.Firstly, similar to Legion it’s very clear from the onset that they are sticking to many of the elements that worked for their previous X show. No spandex or heavy leather outfits, no giant robots destroying buildings, and dealing deep into the deep catalogue of X-Men characters to tell a fresh story.The story appears to center around a brother and sister, Andy and Lauren Strucker, who have recently discovered they have mutant powers. They appear to be based on the twins that make up the character Fenris. In the comics, Fenris are the twins of Baron Von Strucker, a Nick Fury villain. In The Gifted, Andy and Lauren’s dad appears to be working for the antagonists so while this is definitely a big change up from the comics, they are keeping some of the framework to tell the most compelling story possible.It’s important to note that Andy and Lauren are both in high school as well. Like Marvel Studios and Sony have done with Spider-Man in their latest movie installment, Fox seems to be going back to the roots of the X-Men by the story revolve around younger characters as the original run of comics and New Mutants did. Considering that live action X-Men has been going on for nearly two decades now, this is a move that shows how Fox still has plenty of ideas on how to handle this franchise and that they’re keeping it in good hands.Andy and Lauren Strucker don’t have to go through all of this alone though. Thunderbird, Polaris, Blink, and Eclipse are here to help protect them while they figure out who they are. The trailer shows us far more about the kind of dynamic these characters are going to have with each other which was thrilling to watch. While we did get a glimpse of the dynamics we’ll be seeing with our protagonists; we don’t get much of an idea of what the antagonists are planning other than to send little robots after our mutant heroes so they can run up the special effects budget. That’s not necessarily a bad thing. The series hardens back to X2: X-Men United and X-Men: Days of Future Past where instead of a monster of the week the X-Men are tackling more complex social issues. This shouldn’t come as a surprise as Bryan Singer is one of the Executive Producers on board.One thought that will linger after you watch the trailer is when exactly does this take place in the timeline? The series seems somewhat connected to the movies and mentions how the X-Men and Brotherhood seemingly no longer exist. It was mentioned in Logan how the X-Men have not been around for some time, but this series so far doesn’t seem to have the goal of setting up a near dystopian future so it’s possible that this may be an alternate timeline.Fox has really been nailing the X franchise lately, and The Gifted doesn’t appear to be an exception. Tune in Monday, October 2nd to catch the premiere, and make sure you keep an eye out for the Stan Lee cameo!Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Bodies of 8 out of 19 missing fishermen recovered from Bay of

first_imgKolkata: The Indian Coast Guard (ICG) has recovered the bodies of eight of the 19 fishermen, who went missing on Monday after their trawlers capsized in the Bay of Bengal, a top ICG official said on Thursday. “The bodies have been handed over to the fishermen’s associations for identification,” ICG Inspector General (North East region) K S Sheoran said. Six bodies were recovered today, while two were found yesterday, he added. The bodies were found from an area in the sea, about 35 nautical miles from the Dalhousie island, and a Dornier aircraft and Coast Guard ship “Sujay” were continuing with the search for the remaining missing fishermen, Sheoran said. A hovercraft was also maintaining vigil close to the coast, he added. The fishermen had ventured into the sea from Frazerganj in South 24 Parganas district. Fishing trawler FB Joykishan had capsized amid an extremely rough sea condition and inclement weather on Monday, following which the search-and-rescue operation was launched by the Coast Guard. The members of fishermen’s associations also assisted in the search-and-rescue operation. “The Coast Guard station at Frazerganj is co-ordinating with the fishermen’s associations in the area and is also in touch with the families of the missing persons,” Sheoran said. The search operation would continue till all the missing fishermen were accounted for, he added. Meanwhile, fishermen have been advised not to venture into the sea.last_img read more

The findings are published online, ahead of print, in the journal Urology.In some cases, the imaging test used in the 25-patient study detected even more cancerous lesions than pathologists found when they examined the prostate glands after they had been removed. The study, conducted in men who opted for a radical prostatectomy — total removal of the prostate — agreed to the new imaging test before the operation. Results of the test and the pathological examination were then compared.The imaging technique uses a novel biomarker that latches on to cancerous cells within the prostate. This agent is given intravenously to patients before a positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) scan.“There is a critical need for an accurate method to detect and stage prostate cancer so that the disease can be precisely managed. We believe this method has that potential,” said the study’s senior investigator, Mathew Thakur, Ph.D., professor of radiology at Sidney Kimmel Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University and the director of the Laboratories of Radiopharmaceutical Research and Molecular Imaging.Current tests now used are inexact because they all require an invasive biopsy, and these costly biopsies — which have the potential for complications — can miss 66 percent of cancers, said Thakur, whose team are also members of Jefferson’s Sidney Kimmel Cancer Center. “It is hard to believe that hundreds of thousands of patients in the U.S. have been relying on biopsies to dictate their treatment, when two-thirds of these tests do not accurately reflect what is happening inside the prostate.”In 2015, an estimated 220,800 new cases of prostate cancer were diagnosed in North America, and 27,540 men died of the disease.The prostate is the size of a ping-pong ball, and cancer grows like seeds, not in substantial lumps, he explained. “Physicians cannot see where these small seeds are, so the gold standard is to take 12 biopsy samples of tissue in hopes of detecting whatever cancer exists. It is easy to see how that procedure doesn’t work as well as we would like.”Supported by a $2.6 million grant from the National Institutes of Health, Thakur and his team developed a novel imaging agent, 64Cu-TP3805, that attaches on to receptors, VPAC1, that appear en mass when a cell morphs into cancer. The VPAC1 receptors cover the outside of the cancer cell in order to promote growth. The imaging agent consists of TP3805, which latches on to VPAC1 receptors, and Cu-64 (a radiation emitting copper peptide) that is hooked onto TP3805.The PET imaging procedure captures the places within the prostate where 64Cu-TP3805 has landed on cancerous cells. The agent has a short half-life and it decays quickly, Thakur said. It has lower whole body radiation risk than a CT scan, he added.“The challenge has been to develop an imaging agent that will target a specific, fingerprint biomarker that visualizes prostate cancer early and reliably,” said Thakur.In the study, the new test identified 105 of 107 cancerous lesions found in pathological exams of the removed glands (97 percent agreement, or accuracy), as well as nine lesions that the pathologic exam did not find.“The VPAC1 receptors appear before the cell changes its microscopic appearance, so our imaging test can find them when pathologists may not be able to detect them,” Thakur said. Positive and negative lymph nodes were also correctly identified, as were cases of benign prostatic hyperplasia and cysts.Thakur and his team have also successfully investigated use of the PET imaging agent in human breast cancer, which has been published. He is also examining use of the test in animal models of bladder and lung cancer.“Results of this study exceeded our goal of detecting 80 percent of cancers seen pathologically, and provided us with real insights into how prostate cancer can be accurately imaged,” he said. “A larger study that confirms these exciting findings should be conducted.”Co-authors include Sushil Tripathi, Edouard J. Trabulsi, Leonard Gomella, Sung Kim, Peter McCue, Charles Intenzo, Ruth Birbe, Ashish Gandhe and Pardeep Kumar, all from Thomas Jefferson University.The study was funded by NIH grant NCI R01CA157372, and NuView Life Sciences, the exclusive licensee for the technology.

FDIC Institutions Report Increased Earnings

first_img February 27, 2013 411 Views Institutions insured by the “”Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC)””: recorded their second-highest annual earnings ever in 2012, according to the “”FDIC’s Quarterly Banking Profile””: for the fourth quarter of 2012. High noninterest income and declining loan loss provisions contributed to the increase, according to the FDIC. [IMAGE]Net income for all FDIC-insured institutions over the year was $141.3 billion, a 19.3 percent increase from net income recorded in 2011. The factor contributing most to this increase was a 24.9 percent reduction in loan loss provisions, according to the FDIC. Rising noninterest income–up 8 percent from 2011–also contributed to increased earnings in 2012. Earnings in the fourth quarter alone were 36.9 percent higher than their year-ago levels. Total fourth-quarter earnings reached $34.7 billion for the fourth quarter. [COLUMN_BREAK]In fact, 60 percent of the 7,083 institutions insured by the FDIC reported a year-over-year increase in earnings in the fourth quarter. Fourteen percent reported losses in the fourth quarter, down from 20 percent in the fourth quarter of 2011. Average return on assets at the institutions is also up from last year, now standing at 0.97 percent, up from 0.73 percent a year ago. Increased gains on loan sales, rising trading revenues, and diminishing losses on foreclosure sales all contributed to the rise in noninterest income in the fourth quarter, according to the FDIC. While more institutions added to their reserves than reduced them in the fourth quarter, total reserves at FDIC institutions declined by $5 billion in the fourth quarter, marking the 11th consecutive quarter of reserve declines at FDIC banks. At the same time, a little more than half–53.6 percent–of FDIC-insured banks lowered their loss provisions. The $15.1 billion recorded in the fourth quarter is 24.6 percent lower than the amount recorded a year ago and marks the 13th consecutive quarter of loss provision declines. Delinquencies at FDIC-insured institutions are declining. The number of loans 90 or more days past due fell 5.5 percent in the fourth quarter. At the end of the year, 3.6 percent of loans held by the institutions were noncurrent, down from 2.86 percent a year earlier. The total number of institutions insured by the FDIC decreased from 7,181 to 7,083 in the fourth quarter as 88 banks merged with others and eight failed.
