Peter Döhle Sirius Start Crew Management JV in Manila

first_imgzoom German shipping company Peter Döhle Schiffahrts KG and Genoa-based Sirius Ship Management have joined forces to provide recruitment, training and career development to the Filipino seafarers in Manila.Peter Döhle Schiffahrts has already invested in an ETCC (European Training and Competence Centre) in the Philippines, which was established in Manila in 2011. Presently, the ETCC annually sees a number of more than 1,000 course-participants and around 2,000 Pre-Embarkation-Trainees.”This cooperation is very exciting, starting from the determination to manage the market and not be managed by it, to go over the present crisis period that the shipping sector is experiencing, like many others. It is not a secret that skilled and trained crew, grown up inside the Company with the sense of Company belonging are the real key of a successful management of the vessels,” said Roy Machart, General Manager of Peter Döhle Group.  This partnership will cover all activities related to the management, recruitment and training of several thousands of Filipino crew members who, together with seafarers from India, are the majority of the sailing community of the worldwide shipping industry.“The Philippines is one of the largest seafarers’ basins, if not the greatest in the world, so it can ensure, at least for certain types of vessels, an important synergy if matching with the training of Italian personnel, sharing on board the same problems with a common Company’s approach,” said Filippo Guadagna, CEO of Sirius Ship Management.last_img read more

JKs relation with India will end if terms and conditions of its

first_imgSrinagar: PDP president Mehbooba Mufti said on Wednesday that the relation of Jammu and Kashmir with India will end if the terms and conditions of the state’s accession to the Union were changed.”2020 will also be a deadline from Jammu and Kashmir to the nation. If you remove those terms and conditions on which Jammu and Kashmir acceded to India, our relation with the country will also end,” Mehbooba told reporters after filing her nomination papers from the Anantnag Lok Sabha constituency. The former chief minister was responding to BJP president Amit Shah’s assertion that Article 35A, which guarantees special status to Jammu and Kashmir in terms of residency rights, will be repealed by 2020. On the Congress manifesto, Mehboba said it was word by word same as the Agenda of Alliance agreed upon between her father Mufti Mohammad Sayeed and the BJP at the time of government formation in Jammu and Kashmir in 2015. “Congress manifesto is same as what Mufti Mohammad Sayeed kept in Agenda of Alliance with BJP…status quo on Article 370, revocation of AFSPA, holding dialogue and reducing army footprint from civilian areas. It is word by word the same thing,” she asserted.last_img read more

Annan calls for more political will to combat scourge of violence against

“Violence against women persists in every country in the world as a pervasiveviolation of human rights and a major impediment to achieving gender equality,” he writes in an exhaustive 139-page study that was presented to the General Assembly’s Third Committee today. “Such violence is unacceptable, whether perpetrated by the State and its agents or byfamily members or strangers, in the public or private sphere, in peacetime or intimes of conflict… as long as violence against women continues, we cannot claim to be making real progress towards equality, development and peace.” “Violence against women impoverishes individuals, families, communities and countries. The social, political and economic costs of allowing it to continue unabated are great and call for a commensurate investment in women’s security. Such an effort requires increased political will expressed through a much greater commitment of financial and human resources.” The study, which was called for by the General Assembly in December 2003, examines many forms and manifestations of violence against women in a wide range of settings, including the family, the community, State custody and institutions, armed conflict and refugee and situations involving internally displaced persons (IDPs). Such violence often takes a direct physical form, but can also involve psychological abuse and economic deprivation, it notes, while highlighting that States have “an obligation to protect women from violence, to hold perpetrators accountable and to provide justice and remedies to victims.” It says that much remains to be done to create an environment where women can live free from gender-based violence, and warns that at the international level “violence against women has not received the visibility and prominence required to enable significant change.” Before elaborating on 10 pages of recommendations, Mr. Annan highlights the role of the Assembly in “ensuring that meaningful follow-up and implementation is undertaken by different stakeholders,” stressing that Member States and the international community must acknowledge the “devastating impact any further delay in taking these limited but critical measures will have on women, their families and their communities.” The recommendations are divided into six key areas for action at the national level that include a wide range of measures from ensuring States ratify all human rights treaties to increasing funding for adequate services and access to justice and redress to victims/survivors. Four key areas at the international level also include similarly detailed recommendations, including calling for a “stronger, more consistent and visible” leadership role by intergovernmental bodies and the entities of the UN system, while also stressing the role of the world body in assisting countries to collect data on violence against women so as to better combat it. Welcoming Mr. Annan’s report, the head of the UN Population Fund (UNFPA) bemoaned the fact that “far too many women are subjected to violence and made to feel shame.” “It is time to end tolerance and complicity. We cannot make poverty history unless we make violence against women history. We cannot stop the spread of HIV unless we stop discrimination and violence against women and girls,” said UNFPA Executive Director, Thoraya Ahmed Obaid, in a press release. As well as discussing the Secretary-General’s in-depth study on violence today, the Third Committee also debated his report on the work of the UN Development Fund for Women (UNIFEM), which was presented by its Executive Director, Noeleen Heyzer. read more

Nominate a graduate faculty supervisor

Behind Brock’s successful graduate students are exceptional graduate faculty supervisors, and on April 14, one of those supervisors will be rewarded for his or her work.The Mapping the New Knowledges Graduate Student Research Conference will pay special tribute to the role of Brock’s graduate faculty supervisors with the presentation of the University’s first-ever award for excellence in graduate student supervision and mentorship.All Brock graduate students have been invited to submit nominations for the Graduate Mentorship Award recently established by the Mapping the New Knowledges steering committee.Nominations are open until April 4.“One of the best things about being a graduate student at Brock is the one-to-one attention and support that you receive from your supervisor,” said Ellen Robb, a Brock Vanier Scholar, a PhD candidate in Biological Sciences, and a student representative on the steering committee. “I know that many graduate students will welcome this opportunity to honour the person who has made such a big difference in his or her development as a researcher and in pursuing future academic and professional careers.”The Senate Graduate Studies Sub-Committee on Awards will select a winner. The presentation of the award will be made on April 14 during a full day of graduate student oral and poster presentations on the fourth floor of the Plaza building.Marilyn Rose“Brock has many, many exceptional graduate supervisors who deserve to be recognized,” said Marilyn Rose, Dean, Faculty of Graduate Studies and chair of the conference steering committee. “We are delighted to introduce this award as it will increase the awareness of the tremendous value that graduate supervisors bring to the graduate experience at Brock.“Graduate supervisors are like coaches. They are dedicated to working alongside graduate students and putting them through their paces, so to speak, as partners in exciting research and scholarship activities. Graduate supervisors take students under their wings to inspire, encourage and support excellence and success.”The award carries a $1,000 prize that will be given to the winner to assist with graduate mentorship. That funding will be put to many good uses, Rose said.“Ask any graduate supervisor about how best to spend this money and he or she will have a long list of good ideas,” Rose said. “Some examples include offsetting the cost of travelling to conferences or visiting labs to work with research colleagues, supporting the purchase of research equipment, supplies and specialized software, and helping students with other expenses involved in preparing posters for conferences and presentations.” read more

How We Calculate NBA Elo Ratings

180067-15All-time great Baltimore Bullets–19471419 160051-31Playoff bound 150041-41Average Anderson Packers–19491562 ELOEQUIVALENT RECORDTEAM DESCRIPTION 140031-51In the lottery 170060-22Title contender Denver Nuggets–19491295 There are just a few NBA-specific parameters to set, which we’ll describe below.The K-factorElo’s K-factor determines how quickly the rating reacts to new game results. It should be set so as to efficiently account for new data but not overreact to it. (In a more technical sense, the goal is to minimize autocorrelation.) If K is set too high, the ratings will jump around too much; if it’s set too low, Elo will take too long to recognize important changes in team quality.We found the optimal K for the NBA to be 20. This is higher than we expected; it’s in the same range as the K used for NFL and international soccer Elo ratings even though the NBA plays far more games than those sports. It’s much higher than the optimal K for baseball. It implies that you ought to give relatively high weight to an NBA team’s recent performance.One way to interpret this is that NBA data is subject to relatively little randomness. This makes it different from sports like baseball and hockey, whose game-by-game results are pretty noisy; in those sports, your default assumption should be that a winning or losing streak is mostly luck. That isn’t so true for basketball. Streaks may reflect true, if perhaps temporary, changes in team quality. When the Atlanta Hawks went on a 19-game winning streak this season, for instance, they were undoubtedly getting a little lucky, but they were probably tougher to beat than at other points in the season.There are still some cases in which Elo seems too slow to catch up to reality, like when Michael Jordan left the Bulls or LeBron James left the Cavs. But remember: Elo is only looking at game scores and not the composition of the roster. If that’s all the information you have, setting Elo to react more quickly to these cases would make it overreact to others. The Oklahoma City Thunder’s Elo rating never dipped below 1508 this year despite its 3-12 start, for instance, and that proved to be prudent since the team went 42-25 the rest of the way and ended the year with an Elo rating of 1583.Home-Court AdvantageHome-court advantage is set as equivalent to 100 Elo rating points. One hundred Elo points is equivalent to about 3.5 NBA points,1As for our NFL Elo ratings, it’s possible to translate NBA Elo ratings into point spreads. Here’s the formula: Take the difference of the two teams’ Elo ratings, add 100 points for the home team and then divide by 28. That gives you a projected margin of victory for the game. For instance, in Game 1 of the 2013-14 NBA Finals, the San Antonio Spurs had a 92-point Elo advantage over the Miami Heat, as well as home court, for an overall advantage of 192 Elo points. Dividing that by 28 would make San Antonio roughly 7-point favorites in the game. so that’s like saying the home team would be favored by 3 or 4 points if the teams were otherwise evenly matched.In practice, the magnitude of home-court advantage has waxed and waned over the NBA’s history. Home teams won by an average of 5.8 points in the 1987-88 regular season, for instance, but by just 2.4 points in the past season. And some teams (especially those like Denver and Utah that play at high altitudes) have historically had slightly larger home-court advantages.Still, the spirit of the Elo system is to keep things simple. We experimented with a dynamic home-court advantage rating that changes over time, but we found that it made almost no difference to the overall ratings, partly because each NBA team plays about half its games at home and half on the road. So we’re using the constant 100-point home-court advantage instead.Margin of VictoryElo strikes a nice balance between ratings systems that account for margin of victory and those that don’t. While teams always gain Elo points after wins and lose Elo points after losses, they gain or lose more with larger margins of victory.This works by assigning a multiplier to each game based on the final score and dividing it by a team’s projected margin of victory conditional upon having won the game. For instance, the Warriors’ 4-point margin over the Rockets in Game 1 of this year’s Western Conference finals was lower than Elo would expect for a Warriors win. So the Warriors gain Elo points, but not as many as if they’d won by a larger margin. The formula accounts for diminishing returns; going from a 5-point win to a 10-point win matters more than going from a 25-point win to a 30-point win. For the exact formula, see the footnotes.2The margin of victory multiplier is calculated as follows.Take a team’s margin of victory, add 3 points and then take the result to the power of 0.8.Divide the result by the following formula: 7.5+.006*(elo_diff), where elo_diff represents the Elo rating difference between the teams, accounting for home-court advantage. Elo_diff should be negative in games won by the underdog.For instance, in Game 1 of the Warriors-Rockets series, the Warriors entered the game with a an Elo rating 118 points higher than the Rockets’ and had home-court advantage, for an elo_diff of +218. They wound up winning the game by 4 points. Thus, their margin of victory multiplier is calculated as follows:What if the Rockets had won by 4 points instead? Since they were underdogs, they’d get a larger multiplier:While this formula may seem clunky, it accounts for the fact that favorites tend to win games by larger margins than they lose them. Failing to correct for this will introduce autocorrelation into the system and make the ratings less stable. See here for further discussion.Year-to-Year Carry-OverInstead of resetting each team’s rating when a new season begins, Elo carries over a portion of a team’s rating from one season to the next. In our NFL Elo ratings, teams retain two-thirds of their rating from the end of the previous season. In our NBA ratings, by contrast, they keep three-quarters of it. The higher fraction reflects the fact that NBA teams are more consistent from year to year than NFL squads.For example, the Miami Heat ended the 2012-13 NBA season with an Elo rating of 1754. The team’s Elo rating for the start of the 2013-14 season is calculated as follows:(.75 * 1754) + (.25 * 1505) = 1692Detail-oriented readers may see something that seems amiss here. Each team’s Elo rating is reverted to the mean, and — as we’ve said — the long-term mean Elo rating is 1500. So why does a slightly different number, 1505, appear in the formula?Expansion, Contraction and MergersThe reason has to do with the way we handle expansion teams. In principle, the implementation of this is pretty simple. Each franchise begins with an Elo rating of 1300 in its inaugural professional season. The reason we revert to a mean of 1505 rather than 1500 is that there are liable to be a couple of relatively recent expansion teams in the league at any given time. Giving established teams a rating very slightly higher than 1500 counteracts the expansion teams and keeps the league average Elo close to 1500 over the long run.But the league average Elo rating will be slightly different from 1500 in any given season, depending on how recently the league has expanded. It was 1504.5 during the 2014-15 NBA season, for instance, slightly higher than the long-term average because the NBA hasn’t expanded much recently.The league average tended to fluctuate more in the early years of the NBA because of constant expansion, contraction and mergers with other leagues. (We’ve learned way more than we wanted to know about the early history of American professional basketball, like that you could have once watched a game between teams named the Indianapolis Kautskys and the Akron Firestone Non-Skids.) The league average reached a peak of 1534.5 in 1954-55 after a number of losing teams had disbanded. By contrast, it was just 1440.5 in the 1970-71 season after the NBA expanded rapidly.There’s one other tricky part. We said a team begins with a rating of 1300 in its first professional season. That doesn’t mean its first NBA season. Instead, teams get credit for their performance in predecessor leagues that merged with the NBA:The Basketball Association of America (BAA), which began play in 1946-47, is usually considered the official predecessor of the NBA. So we track all BAA teams’ Elo ratings explicitly, starting them at 1300 in 1946-47.We also track American Basketball Association (ABA) Elo ratings explicitly — yes, that includes The Floridians! — starting them at a rating of 1300 in the ABA’s inaugural season of 1967-68. The year-end adjustment takes care of the rest, allowing the ABA’s performance to gradually improve over time. The four ABA teams that joined the NBA in 1976-77 simply carry over their ratings from ABA. Because these teams — the Indiana Pacers, San Antonio Spurs, Denver Nuggets and New York Nets — had been among the more successful ABA franchises, Elo ratings imply that the merger with the ABA did not weaken the NBA much. The four ABA imports averaged a respectable 40-42 record in their first three NBA seasons, in fact.The National Basketball League (NBL) was a competing professional basketball league that began play in 1937-38 and included colorfully named franchises like the Non-Skids. It merged into the BAA in advance of the 1949-50 season, at which point the combined league was renamed the NBA. In fact, most of the better franchises in the early days of the NBA originated in the NBL rather than the BAA, including the Minneapolis Lakers, Rochester Royals and Fort Wayne Pistons. While we could not track down game-by-game results for the NBL, we inferred Elo ratings for NBL teams based on the season standings and playoff results, and these ratings carry over when teams enter the NBA. For instance, the Syracuse Nationals (now the Philadelphia 76ers) begin with a rating of 1458 in their first NBA season in 1949-50.Finally, one early NBA team, the Baltimore Bullets, originated in a third early league, the American Basketball League (ABL). Confusingly, that original version of the Baltimore Bullets bears no relationship with the team that would later play as the Baltimore Bullets from 1963 to 1973 (and which is now known as the Washington Wizards). However, Elo gives the original Baltimore Bullets credit for the seasons they played in the ABL.3Since data on the ABL is very hard to come by, the Bullets’ initial rating is simply calculated by starting them with a rating of 1300 and then reverting them toward the mean of 1505 for each season they played in that league. You can find the starting Elo ratings for the Bullets and NBL teams below: Waterloo Hawks–19491382 Fort Wayne PistonsDetroit Pistons19481495 Teams retain their prior Elo ratings when they change cities or nicknames. This includes the teams now known as the New Orleans Pelicans and Charlotte Hornets. The NBA, in a bit of revisionist history, considers the current Charlotte Hornets (who were known as the Charlotte Bobcats until this season) to “own” the statistics of the team that played as the Charlotte Hornets from 1988-89 through 2001-02, before they moved to New Orleans. We instead link those Hornets seasons with the New Orleans Hornets, who are now the New Orleans Pelicans. Tri-Cities BlackhawksAtlanta Hawks19491430 Indianapolis Jets–19481366 Rochester RoyalsSacramento Kings19481535 Minneapolis LakersLos Angeles Lakers19481527 Hopefully if you’re reading this, you’ve had a chance to explore our new interactive graphic, “The Complete History Of The NBA,” which tracks each NBA and ABA franchise’s performance through every game of its history.So now for the exciting part: 2,000 words about autocorrelation and the Akron Firestone Non-Skids.Actually, this won’t be too bad because Elo is a pretty simple formula. The guts of the system are the same as we used for the NFL and which other researchers have applied to competitions ranging from chess to soccer. For those new to Elo, here are its essential features:The ratings depend only on the final score of each game and where it was played (home-court advantage). They include both regular-season and playoff games. The principal source for game-by-game scores is Basketball-Reference.com.Teams always gain Elo points after winning games and lose ground after losing them. They gain more points for upset wins and for winning by wider margins.The system is zero-sum. When the Denver Nuggets gained 30 Elo points by upsetting the No. 1 seed Seattle SuperSonics in the first round of the 1994 NBA playoffs, the Sonics lost 30 points.Ratings are established on a game-by-game rather than a season-by-season basis. So you can see changes in a team’s “form” over the course of the year: The Toronto Raptors had a much higher rating early in the 2014-15 season than at the end of it, while the reverse has been true for the Cleveland Cavaliers.The long-term average Elo rating is 1500, although it can vary slightly in any particular year based on how recently the league has expanded (more about that below). More than 90 percent of team ratings are between 1300 (pretty awful) and 1700 (really good), but historically great or truly execrable teams can fall outside that range: 130022-60LOL Sheboygan Red Skins–19491405 120015-67Historically awful NBL/ABL TEAMCURRENT FRANCHISEFIRST YEAR IN NBA/BAASTARTING ELO Syracuse NationalsPhiladelphia 76ers19491458 read more

Asked further who were stoning he responded that it was the rioters who were stoning.  However, Prosecutor Jarjue further asked the witness what was the reaction of the people.Before the witness could answer, Lawyer Sisay-Sabally interjected and objected to the question. She argued that the witness did not give any distinction between the rioters and the general public. This prompted prosecutor Jarju to withdraw his question.He further asked the witness whether   there were other people at the junction apart from the accused persons   . The witness responded in the positive, adding that it is a public area.  When asked what   their   reaction was, the witness said he cannot remember because he was focusing on his duty that took him at the scene.Under cross-examination Lawyer Sisay-Sabally put it to the witness that there is no place called Banjul-Serrekunda highway. The witness responded he said along the Banjul-Serrekunda highway but   that he did not say there is a place called Banjul-Serrekunda highway.At this stage the case was adjourned till Thursday 24 November, 2016 at 4pm for continuation of Cross-examination.last_img read more

American Dental Association mailed malwareinfected USB drives to thousa

first_imgYour dentist’s office might be going through its mail a little more carefully in the coming days after several thousand offices were mailed malware-infected USB drives. This wasn’t just some random mailing, though. The infected drives come straight from the American Dental Association (ADA). Oops.The issue was first reported by a user on the DSL Reports Security Forum who received the USB drive at the office where he works. The drive is built into a credit card-shaped form and is supposed to contain a digital version of updated dental procedure codes that dental offices use for billing and insurance. However, some of the drives contained a little something extra.One of the files on the flash drive tries to open a web page that is known for distributing malware. The site attempts to inject Windows machines allowing the distributors to gain full remote control of the system. A computer with medical records would really be the holy grail, too. Not only are there billing details and social security numbers, there’s a ton of personal information that could be used for phishing attacks.The ADA has confirmed that it did send the USB drives. However, they were manufactured in a Chinese facility. An investigation is underway, but the current working theory is that one of the machines that loads files on to the drives was infected with malware, which then copied itself to all the USB drives it produced.A notice has been sent out by the ADA informing dentists of the incident, but it’s not a very prudent one. It says antivirus software should protect systems, but not all of them even recognize the domain as malicious. The notice also says drives that have already been used successfully should be considered safe. That’s probably not a good idea. Frankly, encouraging offices with HIPPA-protected data to plug in random USB drives was probably not the best idea in the first place.last_img read more

The Thunder are an analytics nightmare thats doomed to fail

first_imgNFL players don’t have an obligation to provide an “escape for fans” President Trump ignited a firestorm with his weekend tweets about NFL player protests during the national anthem. The result was the largest amount of player protests to date, and an intense two-sided debate about free speech and respect for the flag,Many have lamented the intrusion of politics into sports, because they see sports as their “escape” from everyday life, but Colin doesn’t see it that way. The country is divided and more politicized and polarized than ever, and professional athletes have as much a right as anyone to engage in the political discourse and protest.That doesn’t mean everyone has to agree with their actions. Some will choose to boycott the league, and that’s their right. The beauty of America is that we passionately disagree, that doesn’t end when someone puts on an NFL uniform. The Thunder are an analytics nightmare that’s doomed to failThe Thunder have cobbled together their own version of a Big 3 after trading for Carmelo Anthony. Some think the combination of Westbrook, Paul George, and Anthony make the Thunder the second-best team in the West, but Colin disagrees.In a three-point league, Oklahoma City is an analytics nightmare. None of their Big 3 can shoot the three, and all are ball dominating, volume shot takers. There aren’t close to enough shots to satisfy all of them, and it’s only a matter of time before this experiment ends in failure, and the departure of George to the Lakers.

Florida hits alltime record high for tourism

first_imgFlorida welcomed 57.4 million tourists in the first six months of 2016, disclosed Florida’s Governor Rick Scott.“It’s exciting that we are starting the first half of 2016 off with back to back record quarters which puts us on pace to reach our goal of 115 million tourists this year and $100 billion in visitor spending by 2020.

THE CANADIAN PRESS/Fred Chartrand center_img OTTAWA – Finance Minister Bill Morneau says the federal government still has no intention of imposing a Netflix tax because it would result in a financial hit for middle-class Canadians.Morneau’s remarks about the online streaming giant come a couple of days after Heritage Minister Melanie Joly insisted she never agreed to exempt Netflix from any sales tax as part of a deal that has been a political nightmare in her home province of Quebec.Pressed about the issue on Friday, Joly said anyone with concerns about the lack of federal taxes on online streaming services should talk to Morneau because he’s in charge of taxation.Joly unveiled a cultural policy in September that secured a $500-million pledge by Netflix to set up a Canadian office and fund original homegrown content — but the plan did not include taxes on the company’s service.The ensuing weeks have seen the provincial government in Quebec vow to tax foreign online businesses, including Netflix, if Ottawa didn’t do so.The issue has sparked outrage from artists and producers in Quebec’s cultural industry who have described it as an unfair subsidy.Morneau insisted Sunday that Ottawa has no intention of changing its promise not to tax Netflix, and Prime Minister Justin Trudeau himself has repeatedly and categorically ruled out a Netflix tax.Quebec Finance Minister Carlos Leitao said Sunday that he plans to raise the issue with Morneau when federal, provincial and territorial finance ministers meet for two days of talks in Ottawa.last_img read more

Up to 20 new dialysis machines for Paphos renal unit

first_imgTHE Cyprus government has finally stepped in and will supply up to 20 new life saving dialysis machines to Paphos renal unit, according to a local charity.Graham Brown, the chairman of the Paphos Kidney Association, told the Cyprus Mail that the state has also agreed, in principal, to create a much needed larger renal unit, as the current one is cramped and struggling to cope with patient numbers.“I don’t know of a timeframe as to when these units will be operational or exactly where the new unit will be. It’s a positive move though, that the government will now supply these machines,” he said.Brown said that the charity is hoping to swap with and use a larger department at the hospital, which would be able to cope with the number of patients. There are currently more than 70 patients requiring regular treatment at the unit. Brown said that recently, a number of patients had died.The dialysis units which the charity and others have donated will now be used as much needed working spares and finally meet the criteria for the unit. He noted that for every four working machines, there should be a working spare.“Up to now, we have had 16 working machines and only one working spare,” he said.Brown has hereditary polycystic kidney disease and receives regular dialysis treatment at the unit to keep him alive. Each hemodiafiltration (HDF) unit which the charity has recently donated and which the government will now supply comes with a €25,000 price tag. If a patient doesn’t receive dialysis when needed, they will die within five days.Each of Brown’s treatments takes around four to five hours and he needs them three times a week to keep him alive. It costs around €50,000 to treat each patient a year.He said that space is so cramped at the unit that it is impossible for nurses to treat patients in beds right next to each other and that there isn’t even enough space for wheelchair access.Brown said that funds raised recently by the charity would go towards purchasing a ‘special’ machine- a multi filtrate acute therapy system- which comes with a hefty €30,000 price tag and is suitable for those dialysis patients with low blood pressure, and can also be used to treat food poisoning, uremic shock and multi organ failure.Brown noted that regular dialysis treatments takes around five hours and this plays havoc with people’s blood pressure. Patients with low blood pressure can’t use the machines as they need a far gentler treatment, which takes from 36 to 72 hours, so as not to upset their blood pressure. For this they currently have to travel to Nicosia, which has the only machine on the island.By purchasing and installing one at Paphos general hospital, it will mean that local patients will no longer have to travel to Nicosia for treatment.“This machine will be installed at Paphos hospital ICU department and the staff will need to be specially trained in its operation,” he said.Brown said that the money is available and he is merely waiting of the green light from the government, and that although he requested permission more than two months ago, he has yet to receive a response.“The slowness is frustrating,” he said.Brown, who has just completed 560 dialysis treatments is acutely aware of timeframes, as his condition is deteriorating. Further information is available at the charity’s Facebook page.To organise an event for the Paphos Kidney Association: (00 357) 99244679 www.cypruskidney.comYou May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?

Famagusta residents urged to conserve water Updated

The Water Development Department (WDD) on Monday urged consumers in the Famagusta district to use water in moderation, as, due to damage to the Dhekelia desalination plant, reduced quantities of water will be available compared to the increased needs of the summer season.Later in the day, Paralimni mayor, Theodoros Pyrillis, said that the damage, that occurred on Sunday night, had been restored and that the unit will reach full capacity within the next 24 hours.Of the 40,000 cubic metres the unit has been supplying the district daily, he said, the quantity dropped to 25,000.Pyrillis said that, despite the reduced quantities delivered by the desalination unit, there have not been any cutbacks in the tourist area. You May LikeSecurity Systems | Search AdsSecurity Systems You May Wish You Saw Years AgoSecurity Systems | Search AdsUndoNutrition Expert7 Foods That Could Make Arthritis and Cancer WorseNutrition ExpertUndoNeckHamockThis Neck Pain Relief Device May Surprise YouNeckHamockUndo The Deniz boat incident showed clearly the intentions of the Turkish sideUndoTwo of serial killer’s victims buried in PhilippinesUndoVerstappen wins crazy German Grand PrixUndoby Taboolaby Taboola read more

Gate over Nigeria’s economic recovery and growth plan Speaking during the closing ceremony of the Kaduna Investment Summit (KADINVEST 30) on Thursday El-Rufai said though there was nothing wrong in attacking Bill Gate he never did but merely put things in proper perspective He insisted that Gate got it wrong in his opinion on which tier of government should invest more in education and healthcare El-Rufai explained “Coming to the economic recovery growth plan we were all involved in it as state governments and we all keyed into it The whole idea is that we internalise the plan and support the macro plan That is what we are doing in Kaduna We have our own development plan which aligns with the Federal Government economic recovery growth plan “A few weeks ago when Microsoft founder Bill Gate came to Nigeria and appealed to the Nigerian government to invest more in education I made a comment that was reported widely as attacking Bill Gate It was not an attack on Bill Gate it merely putting things in the contest “Mr Gate observed that in the economic recovery and growth plan there was not enough money for human capital development for Health and Education and I did not disagree What I merely pointed out is that the economic recovery and growth plan has numbers that reflected Federal Government’s investment in health and education “But the federal government only dealt with tertiary education and healthcare to a large extent The bulk of education and healthcare investment are subnational because of primary education junior secondary education and primary health care where most of the problems are are all within the purview of state government just like secondary healthcare are all under the state government “What I told Mr Gate is that you have identified the problem correctly but you are looking at the wrong tier of government to handle it The state and local governments have the responsibilities to invest in education and healthcare So it is up to state governments to invest more in education and healthcare and I gave an example of what we are doing in Kaduna and also urged my colleagues the Governors to do same Because unless the state governments do so the country will be clapping with one hand” “That is what I said but it was misrepresented to mean that I was attacking Bill Gate There is nothing wrong with attacking Bill Gate we can differ but that is not what I happened I merely explained the context where the investment should be “But I must add that Bill Gate is a big partner he has invested $16billion in Nigeria And a large percentage of that money was invested in Kaduna State I will not disclose how much because other states will be envious” El-Rufai explained Gregory Allen Scheel 33 is being held in the
