State energy panel Landuse zone allows oil terminal

first_imgThe site where Tesoro Corp. and Savage Companies want to build the Northwest’s largest oil-by-rail terminal in Vancouver is appropriately zoned for such a purpose, the state panel reviewing the proposal decided Tuesday.But that doesn’t mean the companies will be allowed to launch a rail-and-river operation handling as much as 380,000 barrels of crude per day at the Port of Vancouver, according to the state Energy Facility Site Evaluation Council.During its regular public meeting in Olympia that was accessible by telephone, the evaluation council voted 8 to 1 to settle what it described as a very narrow question: Does the city’s heavy industrial zone at the port allow for such uses as the oil transfer terminal proposed by Tesoro and Savage?And while the evaluation council answered “yes,” it also went to great lengths to point out that the question of whether the companies should actually get to build and operate their project is far from settled.Approval of a narrow land-use consistency matter “does not, by any means, translate into an approval of the proposed project,” Bill Lynch, chairman of the evaluation council, said Tuesday.last_img read more

AK A Petersburg veterinarian floats his clinic to Southeast communities

first_img“Well it’s just the practical matter, cause there’s enough medium sized communities that don’t have veterinarians down here,” Hill said. “And it’s a very large, interesting place to run a boat.”  Hill keeps his 50’ aluminum trawler, the Hallie, in Petersburg’s South Harbor. The Hallie stands out among all the seine boats — she’s obviously not set up for fishing. That’s because about 17 years ago, Hill turned the Hallie into a floating veterinary clinic.  “So they have to put everything down, you know set everything in their life aside, take off of work, and get on a plane or a ferry depending on how critical their pet is,” Rooks said.  Dr. Hill can’t be everywhere at once, but he can be reached by phone from just about anywhere. In addition to the floating clinic, he offers remote consultations year-round.   We either have to jump on a ferry, me and the cat, you know in a kennel and in a vehicle,” Rooks said. “So you know a round-trip ferry costs in the $120 range, plus probably in all likelihood a night in Ketchikan depending on when the vet can fit me in. Or I have to get on an airplane.”  Despite the size restrictions, the operating room supports a wide range of procedures, from dental work to fixing broken bones to even some kinds of surgery. One of Waterways’ clients is Katie Rooks, who lives outside of Klawock, on the eastern side of Prince of Wales Island. Rooks owns a cat named Cora. She says there is intermittent vet service down the road in Craig, but that usually her only option is to get herself and the cat to Ketchikan.  For most pet owners, visits to the vet are nothing special, maybe even something they take for granted. But what if you don’t have access to medical care for your pet? This is a real problem for many people in Southeast Alaska’s remote communities. A problem Dr. Ken Hill has been trying to address for years.  The Hallie is a decent sized boat, but most of that is living space and bunkrooms for the Hill and his crew, Laura Wong-Rose of Petersburg and Linda Buehler, a 3rd year veterinary student at Texas A&M. The actual clinic is in the aft part of the boat, and it’s remarkably small, especially with the operating table folded down .   “We’ve had a great dane on there before, and the front paws were at the bulkhead and the back feet were coming through the door, you know you had to open the door in order to get him in there,” Hill said. From left: Linda Buehler, Ken Hill, and Laura Wong-Rose aboard the M/V Hallie in Petersburg (Photo by Ari Snider, KFSK – Petersburg) Rooks has made the trip to Ketchikan before, but it’s expensive and means taking time off from work. For a lot of people, that’s not always feasible.  Before settling in Petersburg, Hill worked as bush veterinarian, serving remote towns in the Kuskokwim Delta and the Aleutian Islands, among other places. He has also worked on government wildlife research projects involving sea otters, wolves, and moose. No stranger to the ocean, he earned his sea legs as a fisherman working the Bristol Bay salmon run. Basically, if anyone was cut out to run a maritime animal clinic servicing remote Alaska communities, it’s Dr. Hill. He says the boat clinic model is well-suited to Southeast.  Between the regular caseload at the onshore clinic and the frequent phone consultations, it’s been a bit of a challenge finding time to prepare the Hallie for another summer on the water. But the Waterways crew is almost ready for another few weeks of motoring around Southeast, tending to the medical needs of cats, dogs, parrots and even the occasional hedgehog.last_img read more

Kim JongUn killed halfbrother for being a CIA agent says new book

first_imgKim Jong Nam was killed in Malaysia in 2017.AFPThe slain half-brother of North Korean Leader Kim Jong Un was an informant for the US Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), a media report said. Kim Jong Nam, who died after being exposed to VX nerve agent at Kuala Lumpur International Airport in 2017, collaborated with the US spy agency, the Wall Street Journal reported on Monday.However, many details of Kim Jong Nam’s relationship with the CIA remained unclear, the journal reported, citing  a person with knowledge of the matter. The journal said that Kim was ‘almost certainly’ in contact with the security services of other countries, particularly China’s.The report also said some US officials doubted if Kim was able to provide secret details regarding North Korea as he lived outside the country.The murder In February 2017, two women poisoned Kim Jong Nam by smearing his face with liquid VX, a chemical weapon banned by the Chemical Weapons Convention of 1993. The women, Vietnamese Doan Thi Huong and Indonesian Siti Aisyah, were arrested by Malaysian authorities on charges of ‘voluntarily causing hurt by dangerous weapons or means’. Upon interrogation, they claimed that they thought they were a part of a TV prank. Huong also claimed that she was instructed by four men who disappeared after the incident. The Malaysian authorities released Siti Aisyah in March and Doan Thi Huong in May.Despite Pyongyang’s denial of its role in the incident, it was widely known that Kim Jong Nam’s murder was an assassination carried out by his half-brother, Kim Jong Un.The North Korean regime is known to have executed many suspected political adversaries. Jang Song Thaek, the young ruler’s uncle and a high-ranking official, was executed in Pyongyang in 2013. Charges including treason and corruption were cited as reasons for his execution.  Kim Jong-un’s executed his uncle Jang Song Thaek in 2013.AFPIn 2018, Jung H. Pak of the Brookings Institute said in a report titled ‘The education of Kim Jong-un” that Kim Jong Nam was most likely murdered on Jong Un’s orders.Kim Jong Nam’s fall from graceKim Jong Nam, the eldest son of North Korean leader Kim Jong Il, was appointed to a senior position in the Ministry of Public Security of North Korea in 1998. However, in 2001, following an incident in which he was arrested in Japan for attempting to visit Tokyo’s Disneyland with his family, his assumed position as the future leader fell apart. Jong Nam was also an outspoken critic of the regime. In a series of emails with the editor of Tokyo Shimbun in 2012, he revealed that the reason behind his expulsion was that was an advocate for reforms. He also said he had been termed a ‘capitalist’ by his father, Jong Il.Following his death, analysts raised concerns that after Kim Jong Nam, his son Kim Han Sol, who is believed to be under US protection, could be the regime’s next target. Han Sol, being the eldest son of Kim Jong Nam, is the direct heir according to the North Korean hierarchical traditions.

Fifield claimed that the $120,000 in cash that Nam was carrying in his backpack could have been the payment in exchange for intelligence-related activities, or earnings from his casino businesses.But the sources WSJ talked to were not certain if Km Jong Nam travelled to Malaysia in February 2017 to meet his CIA contact.

Sunflares solar cells are so light you can attach them with tape

first_imgYou don’t need to call in a contractor to hang a poster on the wall, and soon the same might be true of hanging solar panels. A Los Angeles-based startup called Sunflare says it has solved that problem with a new type of solar panel that is light and flexible, allowing it to be hung anyplace with just a bit of adhesive.The problem with adding solar panels to existing structures (regardless of how efficient they might be) is that the panels themselves are heavy and need to be installed properly. For example, expensive reinforced scaffolding is often needed on the roofs of homes. Sunflare says its new panels can be put up on the side of a building with nothing more than a 3M sticky tab.It doesn’t even matter if the surface you want to stick these panels to isn’t completely flat. Part of the reason they’re so light is that Sunflare managed to do away with the glass substrate required of other CIGS (copper indium gallium selenide) type solar cells. Unlike the traditional silicon crystal panels, these CIGS panels can be manufactured with just a flexible thin film. If an expensive silicone panel bends or gets smacked, it may very well break.Sunflare is also claiming it has improved the efficiency of these panels compared to the silicon variety. They can produce 10% more energy throughout the day thanks to better light absorption in low-light. Sunflare has also reduced glare to boost performance during the hottest part of the day. Plus, the panels are cheaper to produce, bringing them in-line with existing technology. This is a major improvement over past flexible solar panel designs.This all sounds great — maybe too great. Sunflare is a new company making big claims. Time will tell if the claims end up being accurate. It would be neat if you could just duct tape some solar panels to your roof.last_img read more

Remembering Carol Channing – Broadway Icon for Over 50 Years

4 Foolish Cybersecurity Mistakes Robert Herjavec Is Shocked People Still Make

first_img Robert Herjavec compares hackers to professional burglars. “If they want to break in, there’s nothing you can do,” he tells Entrepreneur during a phone interview. “But you can have an alarm, a safe and a dog to stop them from getting away with anything once they’re in.”(He has all of the above following a recent burglary at one of his homes.)The Shark Tank star views cybersecurity much the same — a game of strategically dodging bad guys and vigilantly keeping valuable data out of their greedy clutches. Through Herjavec Group, the Toronto-based Internet security firm he co-founded in 2003, he and his team of “ethical hackers” help enterprise companies throughout the globe do just that.“Hackers generally don’t want to do hard work,” he says. “They look for the easier targets and our job is to make their job as hard as possible.”Related: Robert Herjavec to Immigrant Entrepreneurs: ‘People Don’t Care About Your Color, Religion or Sex. They Care About the Value You Add.’This might surprise you, but Herjavec entered the technology business on a whim and with zero prior experience some 30 years ago. He was waiting restaurant tables and needed a better-paying gig. “When I learned how much it paid, I jumped at the chance,” he recalled in a Herjavec Group blog post. The self-made multimillionaire has come a long way since. Today, his company is one of the largest and most profitable information technology firms in Canada, with offices in New York City, the U.K. and Australia, and coming soon to Los Angeles.We caught up with the veteran entrepreneur this week to find out which rookie cybersecurity mistakes he’s surprised people, even some of the tech-savviest among us, still make and how to avoid them.1. Using dangerously dumb passwords.You’d think we’d be past floating flimsy passwords by now, but apparently we’re not, with even high-profile (and super techie) founders such as Mark Zuckerberg failing to brush up on their password hygiene enough to keep hackers at bay. “Zuckerberg made some common mistakes when his social accounts were hacked that everyone can learn from,” Herjavec says. “He reused the same password for multiple logins and it was a simple word that wasn’t that hard to guess.” (The stolen password was “dadada,” not exactly an unpredictable one for a new father.)Herjavec admits that he too is “really horrible” at crafting strong passwords. However, he says he generally feels safe anyway, thanks to Herjavec Group’s mandatory two-factor authentication login system. It calls for a standard username and password combo, plus an auto-generated PIN code. Without both, you can come knocking but you can’t get in.The fix: Use different passwords for different accounts. Additionally, Herjavec recommends that you keep two different sets of unique passwords — one for your personal accounts and one for your professional accounts — and change them often.“This may sound too basic,” he says, but be sure to craft your passwords to be at least eight digits and mix it up with an unpredictable garble of numbers, symbols and letters, including upper and lowercase letters. “The harder it is for hackers to guess, the faster they’ll move on to someone else and leave you alone — and please, don’t make your password ‘password’ or ‘1234.’ Really, I don’t understand how people still do that.”  Related: All 7 Shark Tank Stars Share Tips on How to Become a Millionaire2. Doing anything private on public Wi-Fi.If you’re engaging in any online activity involving private data, such as your personal identifying information or credit card number, resist the temptation to do it on public Wi-Fi. “Sure, free and open access can be great and super convenient in a hurry, but it’s also all of those things to cybercriminals,” Herjavec says. Accordingly, he advises: “Don’t go into Starbucks and use their Wi-Fi to buy plane tickets or to do your banking, because, as I always say, the downside of public Wi-Fi is the word ‘public,’ and ‘public’ means you’re much more vulnerable to attack.”The fix: Steer clear of public Wi-Fi whenever possible. When staying at a hotel, for a higher level of protection, Herjavec suggests only using the private Wi-Fi in your room, not the public Wi-Fi likely offered in the hotel lobby.Related: Shark Tank Star Robert Herjavec on the 5 Worst Sales Sins3. Falling for ransomware.  Ransomware attacks are on the rise across the globe. Hackers use ransomware to hold files hostage in the hopes that victims will pay to get them back. Enough people are falling for ransomware traps to make it the most profitable malware in history, per a report Cisco released this week.“What ransomware basically does is freeze your computer,” Herjavec explains, “and then you have to pay money, often in bitcoin, to unfreeze it.” He says he’s “surprised and amazed” at how many “smart people” he personally knows, and that his company serves, who persist in clicking on files, emails and email attachments that they shouldn’t.“I tell our customers, ‘You’re really not that sexy, there isn’t a woman in Russia who wants to meet you and you didn’t win a million dollars,’ because a lot of ransomware is initiated through emails that promise things like that to entice people to open them, which opens up your whole computer in an instant.”   The fix: Resist the temptation to click on or download any links, files, emails or attachments you think look fishy. Also, if you don’t already, make sure you routinely back up all of your files to external hard drives and to the cloud, Herjavec suggests, especially your most most-critical data. Finally, be sure you have the latest anti-malware installed on your computer.Should you accidentally click on and initiate ransomware, Herjavec suggests disconnecting your computer from the network immediately and contacting a cybersecurity expert or online security firm and letting them take it from there.  Related: The Security Threats Small Businesses Must Keep Their Eyes On4. Giving away the keys to your bank account.Identity thieves are increasingly more technically advanced, yet we’re also increasingly more aware of how to sniff out their sneaky phishing scams. “That’s why I’m surprised people still fall for their attacks,” Herjavec tells us. “They’ll send you an email that looks just like it came from your bank, requesting that you verify your account number or credit card status and with your birth date and PIN number.” The request for your account PIN number alone should register as a red flag, he says. “Any time anyone asks you for something like that, it’s not goodness.”The fix: Simple: “Don’t respond, give nothing away and delete the email,” Herjavec says. “Remember, a bank would never ask you for your PIN in an email.” When in doubt, call your bank and ask if it is trying to contact you to confirm account activity and information. If not, report the sketchy character who did. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

Body language expert Traci Brown spoke at the AHRA 2019 meeting on how to identify when a person is not being honest by their body language. She said medical imaging department administrators can use this knowledge to help in hiring decisions and managing staff.  Demand for ultrasound scans at U.S. outpatient centers could grow by double digits over the next five years, according to a speaker at AHRA 2019. A variety of factors, however, could cause projections for this and other modalities to change.

Photo courtesy of Nicole Wake, Ph.D. Most experts embrace the notion that the best way to prevent medical errors is to learn from them rather than punish the individuals involved. Despite this, the facts suggest there is still much work to be done in establishing a just culture in healthcare that acknowledges the inherent likelihood that humans will make mistakes.The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ) has studied this particular issue for years, and its most recent findings point to the fact that the majority of physicians still feel their organizations employ a blame-oriented rather than solutions-oriented approach to error prevention. In AHRQ’s “Hospital Survey on Patient Safety Culture: 2012 User Comparative Database Report,” more than 500,000 staffers representing 1,128 hospitals were surveyed.1 The majority of respondents, including physicians, feel that their mistakes are held against them.  This is particularly interesting when considered against the backdrop of the recent Office of the Inspector General (OIG) report entitled, “Hospital Incident Reporting Systems Do Not Capture Most Patient Harm.” In it, the OIG concluded that based on its study of claims from 2008, 86 percent of incidents that harmed Medicare beneficiaries were not reported to the hospital’s incident reporting system.2 The report opined on a variety of potential causal factors for this, including:• a lack of staff training on what constitutes “harm” and should be reported;• time constraints; and• the belief that someone else would take care of the reporting.  Although fear of punishment was not cited as a possible reason for non-reporting in the OIG’s report, in light of AHRQ’s findings on the subject, it seems probable that fear of punishment is another reason.  Accepting the Truth: Everyone Makes MistakesTo make a real impact on the rate of diagnostic errors in radiology, it is necessary to first accept the truth that all radiologists, even very good ones, make errors. Case load, case complexity, rapid reporting requirements and radiologist fatigue all play a role in the quality of a radiologist’s work. In order to make interpretation and communication more reliable, we must first accurately identify the types of predictable human errors that can be avoided through the introduction of system level improvements. The principle, which is simple, is that physicians with better tools will make fewer mistakes.One area where radiologists can miss an important step is in communication of critical results. Managing urgent communication workflow can be challenging if contact information for the patient’s physician is incorrect or the physician is unavailable to receive the results. When faced with these hurdles, the radiologist may fail to complete the required communication or, more likely, simply fail to document the communication that took place.The degree of difficulty required to manually manage the critical-results reporting process is so high that radiology groups often fail to meet Joint Commission standards. Sarwat Hussain, M.D., from University of Massachusetts Memorial Health Care, published a study in 2009 describing his group’s efforts to improve critical results reporting compliance.3 After considering the options, his department of 40 radiologists chose to implement a manual approach to critical results reporting. The department set a goal to achieve 90 percent compliance and spent two months preparing by developing policies, educating staff and establishing expectations.  After implementing the plan, there was an actual decline in performance in the first few months. It ultimately took the radiologists at University of Massachusetts Memorial Health Care more than a year to achieve the compliance goal.While the author’s conclusion was that the project was effective, one could argue that the time and manpower required to achieve the result could have been significantly reduced with better technology and system-level supports. Solutions for automated reporting of critical findings are readily available, ranging from messaging systems that deliver a pre-recorded audio clip to more sophisticated smart phone applications that provide the critical result along with key images and a one-click option for a live consultation with the radiologist.         Simple Solutions Can Make a DifferenceHowever, implementing better tools need not always equate to purchasing expensive technology. The aviation industry’s use of checklists is consistently cited as an antidote to human error, and healthcare quality thought leaders have come to recognize the incredible power of the simple checklist to making healthcare safer. Research confirms that the implementation of checklists in surgery saves lives, and the World Health Organization (WHO) estimates that at least half a million deaths per year could be prevented if the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist were effectively implemented worldwide.4Atul Gawande, M.D., external lead of the Second Global Patient Safety Challenge on Safe Surgery in the WHO Patient Safety Programme, has commented, “It is clear that the WHO Surgical Safety Checklist has already saved many thousands of lives since its introduction. We need to keep the pressure on healthcare facilities around the world to ensure adoption of the checklist so that hundreds of thousands more lives can be saved.”4Radiologists also should incorporate diagnostic checklists into their interpretation workflow, particularly for high-risk or highly-complex studies. A well-constructed diagnostic checklist provides the framework for systematic inspection of all images and anatomic structures, lessening the likelihood that obvious pathology will distract the reader from detecting a subtle or unexpected finding.  To aid its radiologists, Radisphere looked at more than 400 studies and more than 13,000 procedural variations to isolate the findings that are most often overlooked and then incorporated diagnostic checklists into its proprietary reporting software. The checklist format conforms to the American College of Radiology (ACR) Practice Guideline for Communication of Diagnostic Imaging Findings, and it also helps radiologists present their findings in a clear, consistent format.Our radiologists appreciated the support provided by the diagnostic checklists. In a 2011 survey conducted by the group, 81 percent of respondents stated that the group’s checklist-driven reporting tools improved the quality of their reports.      Other Solutions: CAD, Doubling UpAnother system-level strategy to combat errors in radiology is to introduce redundancy into the interpretation of error-prone examinations. For some examinations, such as mammography or prostate magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), radiologists may incorporate computer-aided detection (CAD) software, which uses pattern recognition algorithms to flag areas with a possible malignancy for closer inspection during interpretation.  Another approach is the usage of real-time concurrence review of high-risk or high-complexity studies by a second radiologist before the first reading is finalized. While so-called “double-reading” of certain categories of high-risk studies (e.g., mammography) is sometimes undertaken by radiologists, the process is cumbersome without structured support. It also can be costly and ultimately lead to more questions than answers for the interpreting radiologists when a difference of opinion occurs.  For a concurrence review program to be effective, it must resolve the problems of how to:• select only those cases where a real benefit will be derived from the second opinion;• reconcile discrepancies between the readers; and• complete the process in a rapid manner.In short, concurrence review represents a clear opportunity to eliminate interpretive errors in problem-prone cases. However, it must be scalable to be effective.          In 2000, Harvard School of Public Health professor Lucian Leape, M.D., testified before Congress that medical errors were extremely prevalent and that healthcare organizations should make medical error reduction a crucial priority.5 He also testified that part of the change must include the elimination of punitive responses to inadvertent medical errors. More than a decade later, too little progress has been made, and the need to stop using punishment to address errors remains urgent.    Radiology is one of the most technology-driven specialties in medicine, which presents those in the field with a unique opportunity to lead on the issue of encouraging a just culture and reducing medical errors through system-level improvements. By introducing better tools, such as automated critical results reporting, diagnostic checklists and concurrence-review software solutions, radiology providers can reduce their rate of error and, ultimately, foster a culture of learning that protects both patients and their physicians. References:1.

Health checks for older drivers

first_imgMOTORISTS aged 75 will from now on be required to obtain a doctor’s certificate every year stating that they are fit to drive.The decision was taken on Monday at a meeting of the Road Safety Council, chaired by communications minister Marios Demetriades.The safety of the senior citizens as well of other drivers was the primary concern, Demetriades said.Each year people aged 75 and above must now renew their driving licence after supplying authorities with a certificate from a doctor or doctors.The physicians will bear responsibility for the information they certify, and must be specialist doctors, unlike cases in the past when even gynaecologists would issue such certificates, Justice Minister Ionas Nicolaou said.Moreover, the doctors signing the certificates will be required to inform the Road Transport Department of any change in the state of health of the drivers that may affect their ability behind the wheel.The Road Safety Council also discussed the intended introduction of the narcotest, an issue pending since 2010.Draft legislation prepared by the government has hit a snag due to legal complications on issues touching on privacy.Demetriades said officials from the ministries of communications and justice, the state lab and the Attorney-general’s office will soon be holding a meeting to further discuss the issue and find the “best possible solutions.”You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
