PAOK Signs Dutchman Maduro

first_imgThe Thessaloniki-based soccer team PAOK has picked up Dutch international midfielder Hedwiges Maduro, signing the defensive player to a two-and-a-half year deal, getting him from the Spanish side Spaniards Sevilla.The 28-year-old, whose contract was not disclosed, has played 22 times for the Netherlands, which finished runner-up in the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.Having started his career at Ajax, where he won two Dutch Cups, he moved on to Valencia in 2008, winning the Spanish Cup that same year, and then transferred to Sevilla four years later.He made his international debut in a World Cup qualifier against Romania in 2005 and he was part of the Dutch World Cup squad the next year, although he saw only four minutes of action at the finals in Germany.Shortly after making his league debuts with Ajax, Maduro gained his first cap for the Netherlands in a 2006 FIFA World Cup qualifier against Romania. He was picked for the final squad-of-23 by national team manager Marco van Basten – also his coach in Ajax’s youth system – appearing four minutes in the 0–0 group stage draw against Argentina in an eventual round-of-16 exit.In 2007, despite already having amassed 12 senior caps, Maduro took part in the UEFA European Under-21 Championship which was held in the Netherlands, and scored the competition’s first goal when the Jong Oranje beat Israel 1–0. He also played in the second match, a 2–1 win against Portugal which secured a semifinal spot and qualification to the Olympic tournament.In the semifinals against England (1–1 after 120 minutes) Maduro successfully converted his penalty shootout attempt, as Holland won it 13–12 after 32 shots. The Dutch went on to retain their 2006 title by beating Serbia 4–1 in the final, and he was named in the UEFA Team of the Tournament.TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Précautions contre la maladie de Lyme

first_imgAvec l’arrivée du beau temps et l’augmentation du nombre de Néo-Écossais et de Néo-Écossaises souhaitant sortir en plein air pour profiter des forêts et des parcs, il est important de rappeler les précautions à prendre pour éviter de se faire piquer par les tiques à pattes noires (tiques du chevreuil), qui sont susceptibles de propager la maladie de Lyme. La maladie de Lyme est une infection bactérienne transmise par les tiques à pattes noires qui sont elles-mêmes infectées. Le premier symptôme est l’apparition d’une éruption cutanée de forme circulaire à l’endroit de la piqûre. On peut également avoir d’autres symptômes : fièvre, fatigue, douleurs musculaires et maux de tête. Du moment qu’on dépiste la maladie assez vite, il est facile de la traiter à l’aide d’antibiotiques et d’assurer la guérison du patient. Plus rarement, si on ne la traite pas, la maladie peut entraîner des symptômes plus graves : affaiblissement des muscles du visage, troubles cardiaques et problèmes articulatoires chroniques. La guérison de ces symptômes est également possible grâce aux antibiotiques. « Le risque d’attraper la maladie de Lyme est faible dans la plupart des régions de la Nouvelle-Écosse et d’ordre semblable aux autres régions du Canada », déclare Richard Gould, médecin conseil en santé publique. « Il est malgr é tout important de prendre les précautions appropriées, en particulier dans la région de Lunenburg et dans le secteur du parc Admiral’s Cove à Bedford, où nous savons qu’il y a des tiques porteurs de la bactérie qui cause la maladie. » Il y a eu huit cas confirmés de maladie de Lyme en Nouvelle-Écosse depuis 2002. Les tiques à pattes noires peuvent aussi transmettre des bactéries entraînant l’anaplasmose granulocytaire humaine (AGH). Cette infection cause généralement des symptômes semblables à ceux de la grippe et disparaît parfois d’elle-même sans traitement particulier. Les personnes âgées et les personnes souffrant d’une déficience immunitaire risquent cependant de développer une forme plus grave de la maladie et nous leur recommandons de consulter leur médecin si les symptômes persistent. L’AGH peut être traitée et guérie à l’aide d’antibiotiques. Aucun cas d’AGH n’a été signalé en Nouvelle-Écosse. Le docteur Gould indique qu’il est recommandé aux gens de continuer à profiter des activités en plein air, mais de prendre les précautions suivantes, en particulier dans les secteurs où l’on sait qu’il y a des tiques à pattes noires porteuses de la maladie de Lyme : — porter une chemise à manches longues et un pantalon de couleur claire (afin de mieux voir les tiques s’il y a lieu), des chaussettes de couleur claire et des chaussures fermées lorsqu’on travaille ou qu’on joue en plein air ou qu’on se promène dans les bois — rentrer les extrémités du pantalon dans ses chaussettes et rentrer sa chemise dans le pantalon — vaporiser les vêtements et les parties exposées de la peau à l’aide d’un insectifuge contenant du DEET — vérifier les vêtements et les parties exposées de la peau après avoir travaillé ou joué dehors ou dans les bois pour s’assurer qu’on n’a pas attrapé de tique; enlever toute tique attachée à la peau — ne pas utiliser le DEET pour les animaux domestiques; vérifier cependant régulièrement les animaux domestiques pour s’assurer qu’ils n’ont pas attrapé de tiques, en particulier dans les secteurs où l’on sait qu’il y a des tiques à pattes noires porteuses de la maladie de Lyme — tondre la pelouse régulièrement pour réduire le risque que les tiques s’établissent dans votre propri été. Il est très important de vérifier qu’on n’a pas attrapé de tiques. Les tiques à pattes noires ne peuvent transmettre l’infection bactérienne que si elles sont attachées à la peau depuis environ 24 heures. En enlevant les tiques aussi vite que possible, vous éliminerez ou réduirez le risque d’infection. Il existe de nombreux types de tiques en Nouvelle-Écosse mais seules les tiques à pattes noires transmettent la bact érie responsable de la maladie de Lyme. Les tiques à pattes noires se distinguent des tiques du chien par leur taille et par leur couleur. Les tiques à pattes noires sont de couleur brune à rougeâtre, n’ont pas de marques blanches sur le dos et sont nettement plus petites que les tiques du chien. Vous trouverez des images de tiques à pattes noires, des instructions pour enlever les tiques et des renseignements d’ordre général sur la maladie de Lyme sur le site Web www.gov.ns.ca/hpp/ocmoh/lyme.htm . Nous encourageons vivement les gens à envoyer les tiques qu’ils trouvent sur eux-mêmes ou sur leurs animaux domestiques au Musée d’histoire naturelle d’Halifax ou à les déposer auprès du bureau du ministère des Ressources naturelles de leur région. Mettez les tiques dans un flacon vide et indiquez sur une étiquette la date et le lieu où vous les avez trouvées.last_img read more

NDP wants transport minister to spell out plan to replace Greyhound service

first_imgOTTAWA – The opposition New Democrats are calling on the Trudeau government to lay out its plan to help communities that will be affected by the shutdown of Greyhound bus services in western Canada.The NDP has requested an emergency meeting of the House of Commons standing committee on transport, infrastructure and communities, hoping that Transport Minister Marc Garneau will spell out the options he’s looking at to ensure people in those communities who rely on bus services are still able to travel.The call comes a week after NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh urged the prime minister to develop a funding plan to prevent Greyhound from shutting down crucial routes, calling it a public safety issue.The bus company announced earlier this month that it’s cutting passenger and delivery services in the Prairies, northwestern Ontario and all but one cross-border route in British Columbia.The shutdown is just the latest in a string of service reductions by Greyhound as it deals with declining ridership.The company has said persistent competition from subsidized national and inter-regional passenger transportation services, new low-cost airlines, regulatory constraints and the continued growth of car ownership have resulted in a 41-per-cent decline in its customer base since 2010.In a letter dated Monday to Judy Sgro, the Liberal chair of the standing committee, Quebec New Democrat MP Robert Aubin says Transport Canada has a responsibility to aid communities that will become isolated once Greyhound halts its services.“As a member of the committee, it is my hope that minister Garneau will present to the committee the possible solutions he is working on to ensure that each of the affected communities has access to transportation services that are worthy of Canada in the 21st century,” says the letter, made public Thursday.“The committee could pass a motion asking minister Garneau and his officials to testify publicly about their work on this file.”Greyhound’s decision has sparked outrage in rural and First Nations communities that rely heavily on the company to get around and to ship parcels, and it has raised concerns that a lack of bus service would force vulnerable people to use less safe modes of transportation.On Tuesday, Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said he had asked Garneau to find solutions to the Greyhound move, calling the news “difficult.”A spokeswoman for the minister would not say what options might be considered, but said the government was “encouraged” by expressions of interest from other bus firms in filling some of the potential service gaps left by Greyhound, using different business models and equipment.In his letter to Sgro, Aubin hinted that improved rail service could play a role in providing transportation services to isolated communities, and that federal money would be needed regardless of the solution that might be adopted.“Whether the solution to the problem involves improving the integration of transport systems or developing a national railway transportation strategy or any other strategy, it is vital that a funding plan be implemented to ensure that Manitoba, Saskatchewan, Alberta, northwestern Ontario and rural British Columbia are not deprived of this service,” he wrote.A spokesman for Sgro said that interest among committee members in holding an emergency meeting was being monitored, and that while intercity busing falls under provincial jurisdiction, Garneau was already reaching out to his provincial counterparts affected by the Greyhound decision “to see what paths forward exist.”last_img read more

Man who helped Markham kidnapping victim speaks out

first_imgMARKHAM (CITYNEWS) – A Gravenhurst man is recounting how he helped Wanzheu Lu, the 22-year-old who was kidnapped from his Markham condo parking garage, after he was released by his captors.The man, who didn’t want to be identified due to fears for his safety, described how his dog originally alerted him to Lu.He said he was taking his dog out when she began barking at something. He could hear a voice from the street so he decided to go out an investigate himself.“[Lu] had a dark hoodie on that had duck tape on it,” the man said.The resident said that Lu didn’t know where he was and added that he had been handcuffed at some point.Lu reportedly explained to him that he had been kidnapped and that’s when the man called 911.“He was looking quite rattled (and) super upset, which I totally understand,” the man said.He added that Lu couldn’t recall many details, “prior to being released or escaping, he had no idea where he was.”Within 10 minutes, police had arrived and Lu was taken to hospital for minor injures. He has since returned to York Region.The man said he had only heard about the story once on the radio and never expected to end at his home.“I was taken aback by it, but I just did what I had to do,” he said.He acknowledged if it weren’t for his dog he likely would not have known Lu was there and for a chilly night, Wanzheu was only dressed in a sweater and jeans.“It definitely was a stroke of luck. I guess he had a guardian angel looking out for him at some point,” the resident said.York regional police are still investigating the motive behind the “violent” kidnapping and are actively looking for four suspects involved.FULL VIDEO: Gravenhurst man describes finding Markham abduction victim Wanzheu Lulast_img read more

Councils wants more options for Bylaw enforcement due to parking and illegal

first_imgMayor Ackerman wants the report to look at any actions that can be taken on behalf of the City to motivate those with illegal suites and as the Mayor said, “know darn well they have that suite, to rectify that.”Mayor Lori Ackerman shared other actions are required by the City to motivate people with illegal suites. “I think on the principle of safety, this needs to be dealt with,” said Ackerman in terms of the congestion in neighbourhoods that have several vehicles that block sidewalks and roads, causing visibility and safety issues.Council agreed this report was necessary to know what it will take to equip Bylaw officers with the tools they require for their toolbox to end this problem.

Rohini court summons former Haryana Minister in suicide case

first_imgNew Delhi: A Rohini court on Monday nullified the cancellation report filed by Delhi Police and issued a summon for former Haryana Home Minister Gopal Goyal Kanda and his aide Aruna Chadha in the case of Anuradha Sharma’s suicide, six months after her daughter, Geetika committed suicide in August 2012. Anuradha (62) had hanged herself fearing persecution from Kanda and his associates, who were already threatening and harassing her, according to verbal testament given by Dinesh Sharma, Geetika’s father and the complainant in the case. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderSources familiar with the case told Millennium Post that after Geetika quit Kanda’s airline and moved to Dubai, he allegedly mailed false allegations about her professional abilities to her employers there. In her suicide note, Geetika blamed Kanda and his continued abuse as the prime reason for taking her own life. At the cancellation report hearing, the complainant added that he could not understand what had happened when he received a copy of the cancellation report in the case. The investigating officer at the time, Jawahar Singh, who also testified before ACMM Ekta Gauba, claimed that statements of the complainant, his son, and another relative were completely untraceable and that is why the cancellation report was filed in the case. However, Judge Gauba observed that Singh ‘deliberately’ failed to place the witness statements on record, hence writing to the Home Ministry asking for action to be taken against him. Also Read – Two brothers held for snatchingsWhile reading her order, Judge Gauba said, “In her second suicide note, she (Anuradha) imputed that she is dying because of the death of her daughter due to (harassment and torture by) accused Gopal Goyal Kanda and accused Aruna Chadha. The complainant also testified that Anuradha was one of the prime witnesses in the case of his daughter’s suicide, as she was aware of all kinds of abuse inflicted upon Geetika by Kanda and his associates. The court has asked the concerned police station to trace and place on record witness statements pertaining to the case. Kanda and his aide have to appear in court on April 15, to testify in the case.last_img read more

UN official dies of SARS while on mission in China

“In just a few days, Pekka [Aro] was taken away by a sudden illness, which according to our latest information, was Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS),” ILO Director-General Juan Somavia said in a statement. “We know little about this new and devastating illness, for which there is no vaccine, no cure. But for us it has truly hit home.”According to the statement, Mr. Aro left for Asia three weeks ago to prepare for the China Employment Forum which was due to start today, but has now been postponed. On 28 March, he fell ill with symptoms of gastroenteritis and was hospitalized five days later. Mr. Aro was subsequently diagnosed with atypical pneumonia and died in Beijing early yesterday morning.”We knew Pekka as a hard worker, an effective mobilizer, a believer in excellence. We valued his loyalty and friendship, his dedication and commitment. He was generous with his time, his advice, and his support. This is a great shock to us all and a terrible loss for our organization,” Mr. Somavia said.A Finnish national, Mr. Aro was married and the father of three. In addition to his duties as director of the ILO department for skills development, he did groundbreaking work on labour and employment issues in Central and Eastern Europe and was an acknowledged expert on employment issues.UN colleagues in Beijing who were in contact with Mr. Aro have now been quarantined, Mr. Somavia said. Concerned about Mr. Aro’s then rapidly deteriorating health, ILO and World Health Organization (WHO) workers collaborated with Chinese authorities in Beijing in monitoring his condition.The latest figures from WHO indicate there have been more than 2,400 reported cases of SARS and 89 deaths in 18 countries. read more

Murray targets opponents of CRC video

first_imgPointing out the recent collapse of the Interstate 5 Skagit River bridge, U.S. Sen. Patty Murray said Friday that opponents of the Columbia River Crossing project need to stop and think about what could happen if officials fail to replace the I-5 Bridge over the Columbia River.Murray said she’s met with Skagit County businesses entrenched in the traffic nightmare that followed the bridge collapse, as cars and big rigs were forced to detour around the now defunct portion of I-5.“Seeing the businesses that have been impacted, the tears in their eyes … I can’t imagine that happening here if (the Columbia River) bridge were to be shut down because it was declared too unsafe,” Murray said during a stop in Vancouver. “It doesn’t have to be that way.”During an interview with The Columbian, Murray also turned up the heat on CRC opponents, suggesting that they have no backup plan to replace the Columbia River I-5 Bridge in a prompt manner.At the federal level, “there is no backup plan,” the Democrat said. “The people who are opposing (the CRC) need to tell you what the backup plan is.”last_img read more

Reliance Communications shares plunge yet again on loan repayment debt downgrading woes

first_imgReliance Communications chairman Anil Ambani with his son Anmol Ambani during Reliance Capital’s annual general meeting (AGM) in Mumbai, on Sept 26, 2016.IANSReliance Communications shares took yet another beating on the stock exchanges on Wednesday, may 31, with the stock trading 8.23 percent lower at Rs 18.40 on the BSE at around 2 pm. The scrip has lost 28 percent in the past five days ever since lenders raised the issue of loan repayment and rating agencies downgrading its debt to “default”. The company’s debt stood at about Rs 45,000 crore as of March 31, 2017.The sell-off and the consequent fall accelerated after credit rating agencies —  CARE, ICRA and Moody’s — downgraded its debt programme, citing the company’s financials. “The reasons for these revisions include RCOM’s weak operating performance, high leverage, the weak internal cash flow generation against sizeable debt servicing obligations and delays in debt servicing by the company,” Reliance Communications said in a regulatory filing to the BSE on Tuesday, May 30.The free fall in the company’s share price continued despite a statement to repay debt within four months.”Post signing of binding documents for the Aircel and Brookfield transactions, RCOM has formally advised all its lenders that it will be making repayment of an aggregate amount of Rs 25,000 crore from the proceeds of these two transactions, on or before September 30, 2017. The said amount will cover not only all scheduled repayments, but also include substantial pre-payments to all lenders on a pro-rata basis,” Reliance Communications said in a regulatory filing.For the fourth quarter (Q4) ended March 2017, Reliance Communications posted net loss of Rs 966 crore as against a profit of Rs 90 crore in the corresponding period last year.Income fell sharply to Rs 4,524 crore for Q4 from Rs 5980 crore for the year-ago period. “For the first time in over 20 years, the telecom sector registered de-growth in revenues, leading to a reduction in the Government’s share in revenues, sharp drop in operating margins, accompanied by increased interest costs arising from a staggering industry debt burden, and higher depreciation and amortisation charges as a result of higher spectrum purchase costs,” the company said in a statement.

The program has now moved into pre-clinical development and will focus on the combined use of ThermoDox and Philips’ MR-HIFU system for the treatment of pancreatic cancer and cancer metastases in bone.Philips’ MR-HIFU system has the potential to precisely and non-invasively target lesions with acoustic energy, creating sufficient heat to activate ThermoDox and preferentially release high concentrations of the chemotherapy drug doxorubicin. This Celsion-Philips combinational treatment approach may change the paradigm for addressing a broad range of cancers.Prominent experts in the field of MR-HIFU cancer treatment, including Dr. Bradford Wood of the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center, Dr. Chrit Moonen of the CNRS/University Victor Segalen Bordeaux and Dr. Kullervo Hynynen of Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre, are participating in the Celsion-Philips research program. Under the leadership of Dr. Wood, these researchers will be conducting pre-clinical studies to assess doxorubicin drug delivery and to optimize MR-HIFU performance in this application. An Investigational New Drug (IND) submission is planned for early 2010, following successful completion of the pre-clinical studies. The companies’ joint research is focused on the treatment of pancreatic cancer and cancer metastases in bone.Pancreatic cancer is an aggressive cancer with an extremely high mortality rate. There are 37,000 annual incidences in the U.S, which ranks pancreatic cancer as the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths. Curative surgical resection (also known as the ‘Whipple’ procedure) is indicated in fewer than 20 percent of patients, while chemotherapeutic approaches provide modest, if any, patient survival benefit. These factors illustrate the high unmet need for better treatments and the potential significance of MR-HIFU’s mediated, targeted delivery of doxorubicin.For bone metastases, ThermoDox combined with MR-HIFU will be investigated both for tumor control as well as for palliative pain treatment. Cancer progresses to bone metastases in a majority of patients with late-stage breast, prostate or lung cancer, with estimates of between 300,000 – 500,000 cases annually in the U.S. Patients typically experience excruciating and unrelenting pain, often treated with opiate drugs and NSAIDs (Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) with modest benefit. External beam radiation therapy has been used for tumor control, but does not provide significant pain relief for many patients.
