Judge denies bail for BC man charged with alleged assaults of sex

first_imgVERNON, B.C. – A judge in British Columbia has denied bail for a man charged with a number of offences, including the alleged assaults of sex workers.Curtis Sagmoen appeared in provincial court in Vernon on Wednesday, where Judge Mark Takahasi ordered the 37-year-old to remain in custody.Sagmoen is facing nine charges, including three counts of assault, for alleged incidents that occurred between July and the end of August last year.Police have said the alleged victims worked as escorts in the North Okanagan and advertised their services online.Sagmoen’s lawyer has entered not guilty pleas on the charges, which are expected to be dealt with in three separate trials.Days after the first charges were laid last fall, RCMP searched a farm near Salmon Arm and found the remains of a missing 18-year-old woman, but no charges have been laid in connection with that discovery.(CKIZ)last_img read more

Oil up on questions about when refining supply operations will return to

by News Staff Posted Nov 1, 2012 12:56 pm MDT Oil up on questions about when refining, supply operations will return to normal AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email The price of oil is rising as operations at refineries and supply terminals in the U.S. Northeast remained restricted three days after Superstorm Sandy.Benchmark West Texas Intermediate crude gained 60 cents Thursday to US$86.84 a barrel in afternoon trading in New York.Power outages are hampering refineries, storage tanks and supply terminals as they work to restore operations, largely in New York and New Jersey. Imports of oil are also limited, adding to supply problems.Service stations in many cities have closed because of they can’t get gasoline delivered or lack the power to pump it out of their tanks. That’s left motorists to search for stations that are open and wait in long lines to fill their tanks.Some positive U.S. economic news is also boosting oil. Reports for October showed that manufacturing expanded for the second straight month, private businesses added more jobs and consumer confidence was at the highest level in nearly five years. And the government says crude inventories shrank last week.The next key report is due Friday when the government releases the October jobs data.A healthier economy can increase demand for energy products as more consumers commute to work and manufacturing facilities buy more diesel to power operations.In London, Brent crude, which is used to price international varieties of oil, fell 66 cents to US$108.04 a barrel.In other trading, heating oil fell three cents to US$3.03 a U.S. gallon (3.79 litres) and wholesale gasoline rose one cent to US$2.64 a gallon.Natural gas also gained a penny to US$3.83 per 1,000 cubic feet, even as the U.S. Energy Department said inventories rose last week to a level that was 7.1 per cent above the five-year average.(TSX:ECA), (TSX:IMO), (TSX:SU), (TSX:HSE), (NYSE:BP), (NYSE:COP), (NYSE:XOM), (NYSE:CVX), (TSX:CNQ), (TSX:TLM), (TSX:COS.UN), (TSX:CVE read more

Mining sector eyes treetop needles bark for help with hitting pay dirt

by Geordon Omand, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 11, 2016 1:41 pm MDT Last Updated Apr 12, 2016 at 7:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email VANCOUVER – British Columbia’s trees could hold the key to unearthing the whereabouts of promising new mineral deposits hidden in remote and inaccessible regions of the province.A provincial science group has released the results of an innovative pilot project that collects and studies samples from the tops of spruce trees for trace amounts of precious minerals in order to help mining companies hit pay dirt.“It’s a bit of a holy grail,” said Bruce Madu, vice-president for minerals and mining with Geoscience BC, an independent public agency.“Imagine if you can only sample the vegetation to learn about what’s in the soil, as opposed to actually having to dig holes.”Conifers have long been known to absorb metals and other elements from the surrounding soil and concentrate them in their twigs, bark and needles.Analyzing the tree elements over a large region and mapping them out could offer a glimpse into the types and abundance of commercially valuable materials deep beneath their roots, Madu said.“We know that mineral deposits are getting harder to find. They’re lower grade and they’re more deeply buried,” Madu said.“So we’re forced to try to find new techniques to see them, to discover them.”Over six days last June, workers travelled by helicopter and collected samples from near the tops of 421 trees located about 1.5 kilometres apart and scattered across a 1,000-square-kilometre plateau region in central B.C.The samples were analyzed over several months to reveal trace concentrations of 52 elements, from gold and silver to thallium and molybdenum.“This is a raw-data release, so the final judgment of the success of the program will be by the resource sector,” Madu said.“We hope that this is actually another useful tool to help explorers find those more deeply hidden and maybe even lower-grade deposits that are currently a real challenge to discover.”The new sampling method offers another way for mineral-exploration companies to quickly study regions that are otherwise difficult to access and is intended to supplement other techniques.Traditional methods of prospecting include flyovers to detect aberrations in the magnetic field beneath the earth, or chemical analysis, which includes studying surrounding rocks, soil and streams.The treetop method isn’t cheap because of helicopter costs, but its benefits include speed and relative ease.The initiative is part of a $4-million Geoscience BC project designed to investigate the geology and mineral potential of a 24,000-square-kilometre area in the province’s Interior.The agency aims to attract investment to the province and to inform resource decisions.— Follow @gwomand on Twitter Mining sector eyes treetop needles, bark for help with hitting pay dirt read more

North Korean workers given crystal meth to speed construction

first_img Cocaine1/11Cocaine quickly delivers an intense high, one that gives users feelings of euphoria. The big problem, however, is that the high dissipates as quickly as it comes on, leading the user to, you guessed it, use more cocaine. This even effects users on a neurological level, as the chemical that causes the high, dopamine, gets depleted, which, after continued use, makes it harder and harder for users to reach the initial high that they keep chasing.<><> When you’re feeling a little sluggish at work, you probably grab a quick cup of coffee or tea. Maybe you pound a Red Bull. In North Korea, they’re passing out crystal meth.According to a report from Radio Free Asia, construction crews in the capital city of Pyongyang are being worked almost  24-7 to complete their projects before the seasons change. How many projects, exactly? More than 60 in total, including a 70-story apartment building.To get them finished on time, thousands of local residents have been pressed into service on the construction sites. Apparently their overseers are learning that forcing people to working long hours for days on end makes people tired, so they’re trying to keep productivity levels high by openly distributing speed.And why not? Among the many side effects meth has, it can make people lose their appetite (which cuts down on annoying meal breaks) and lead to increased movement and hyperactivity. Sounds like just the thing for a construction site on a tight deadline, as long as you’re not worried about workers dealing with the blurred vision, dizziness, twitching, tremors, paranoia, and crippling diarrhea that can also accompany meth use.But hey, when you’re trying to show the outside world that their sanctions aren’t about to put a damper on things down in your capital city you can’t let the intestinal tracts and nervous systems of a few thousands citizens get in the way. And really… what would you expect from a government that’s probably running a widespread heroin trafficking operation for the past 30-odd years?Pyongyang downtown by Dan Sloan/Flickrlast_img read more

Murkowski Mueller investigation must continue

first_imgSen. Murkowski spoke at the Women in the World Summit in New York Friday. Image: Women in the WorldSen. Lisa Murkowski on Friday reaffirmed her support for special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, an investigation that has edged closer to President Trump’s inner circle.Listen now“I think it is so important, it is so imperative, that this investigation be allowed to go forward,” Murkowski said at the annual Women in the World Summit in Manhattan. “And it will take the course that it will take.”Murkowski was on stage with Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand, D-NY. Gillibrand supports a bill that would protect Mueller and his investigation if the president fires him. Moderator Andrea Mitchell asked Murkowski if she supports the bill, too. Murkowski didn’t commit.“Depending on what this actually – the legislation that Kirsten has just described, I think most would say, is reasonable,” Murkowski replied.Murkowski calls it “unfortunate” that the discussion of such a bill is needed.“Let this investigation move forward and come to its logical conclusion. But the president should not be intervening with the firing of Mueller,” Murkowski said, to cheers and applause.Two recent public opinion polls suggest most Americans support the investigation. One found that nearly 70 percent don’t think Trump should fire Mueller, although among Republicans, more than half say the investigation is unfair.last_img read more

HDFC cuts home loan lending rate by 25bps after RBI rate cut

first_imgIndia’s largest mortgage lender, HDFC, has reduced its lending rate on housing loans by 25 basis points to 9.65%.The new rate, which is applicable to both existing and new customers, will be effective from Tuesday. Women borrowers are eligible for an additional 5bps cut in home loan rates, HDFC said.Following the cut, the effective home loan rate for female customers now stands at 9.60%.HDFC’s rate cut move comes in the wake of last week’s 50bps reduction in repo rate by the Reserve Bank of India (RBI). Soon after the central bank’s rate cut decision, many banks like the State Bank of India (SBI), Bank of India and Andhra Bank announced a reduction in their base rate.While the country’s largest lender, SBI, slashed its lending rate by 40bps, Andhra Bank reduced its base rate by 25bps. Private sectors banks like Axis Bank and ICICI Bank have reduced their benchmark lending rate by 35bps each.With the latest cut, the RBI has slashed the repo rate by 125bps to 6.75% so far this year. The central bank, however, kept the cash reserve ratio (CRR) unchanged at 4%.However, transmission of RBI rate cuts by banks to end users did not keep pace, as lenders remained sceptical about credit uptake even after large base rate cuts.Prior to RBI’s September meeting, the banks had cut the base rate by just 30 bps on an average compared to 75bps cut in the central bank’s repo rate, Business Standard reported.Bank credit growth, a major indicator of economic growth, slowed to a two-decade low in the fiscal year ending March 2015. In 2014-15, credit growth was up 9.52%, down from an increase of 13.83% in 2013-14.last_img read more

However, two new technologies are gaining momentum to assist in functional assessments — CT perfusion imaging and fractional flow reserve CT (FFR-CT). All major CT vendors and third-party advanced visualization companies now offer CT perfusion assessment software that tracks the iodine contrast concentrations in the myocardium throughout the cardiac cycle. Areas of low contrast correspond with areas of perfusion defects. FFR-CT from HeartFlow Inc. gained FDA approval in November 2014 and is the first virtual FFR assessment. Currently, invasive catheter-based FFR measurements are considered the gold standard to quantify if a coronary lesion is flow limiting and should be stented. FFR-CT uses a CT dataset processed through a supercomputer employing computational fluid dynamics calculations to accurately assess FFR readings not just for specific coronary segments, but for the entire coronary tree. This technology has the potential to eliminate the need for all diagnostic catheterizations in the future.

When 64-slice computed tomography (CT) systems were introduced nearly a decade ago, they were purchased in large numbers to upgrade older 16-slice systems and soon became the new standard of care. Soon after that boom period for CT, sales abated due to the economic slowdown and the uncertainty of future reimbursements due to U.S. healthcare reform. This made many hospitals think hard about replacing CT systems as frequently as they had previously, with many extending the service life from five years to 10 or more. The conversion to a value-based payment healthcare system and concerns over radiation dose also have changed what hospitals look for in return on investment, cost-effectiveness, efficiency and increasing patient safety. This is the setting as many providers now begin thinking about replacements for their older, first generation 64-slice systems.  This article offers a brief outline of some of the newest capabilities, trends and advances of the current generation CT systems. Higher Slice SystemsAfter the introduction of 64-slice systems, some vendors introduced higher slice systems in an effort to improve image quality, reduce scanning times, eliminate stitching artifacts and to freeze cardiac and respiratory motion. Today, several vendors offer premium 80-, 128-, 256-, 320- and 640-slice systems in addition to their workhorse 64-slice models. Critics of these systems say 64-slice CT can accomplish any scanning tasks without the increased price tag of the larger slice systems. Supporters of higher slice systems cite their utility in scanning particular types of patients. With children, the speed of these systems can freeze motion, increase image area coverage, reduce radiation exposure and reduce the need for repeat scans. The systems also benefit cardiac scans, where the motion of the heart and breathing is less of a concern because the scans are completed in milliseconds. The larger imaging area of these systems enable whole organ imaging in a single rotation of the gantry, without the need to stitch multiple images together. New Detector TechnologyIn the past few years, GE Healthcare, Philips, Siemens and Toshiba introduced new detector technology for their CT systems that uses microelectronic circuits. This technology reduces electronic noise and enables sharper images. GE, Philips and Siemens also have introduced new detectors to enable dual-energy spectral imaging on their newest generation CT systems. Iterative ReconstructionUntil recently, all CT systems reconstructed images based on filtered back projection because it was fast and could be accomplished in a reasonable amount of time using older computer technology. However, with rapid advances in computing power and the reduction in costs for that power, all the major CT vendors now offer iterative image reconstruction. This software revises the image over and over with multiple iterations to clean up artifacts and clarify the image pixel by pixel. This enables diagnostic image clarity on low dose scans that was previous not possible. This enables CT scanning at much lower doses that a decade ago.An illustration of how this can impact dose has been seen in cardiac scans, which 10 years ago averaged 20-30 mSv, but today can routinely be performed at less than 5 mSv. Some centers using the latest iterative reconstruction software in combination with the latest scanner detector technology now routinely perform cardiac CT with doses of less than 1 mSv.CT Lung ScreeningIn August, GE Healthcare became the first vendor with a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared low dose CT lung cancer screening option. The U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF) recommend the use of low dose CT lung cancer screening for high-risk individuals in December 2013. Additionally, Medicare has now approved reimbursement for its beneficiaries who are eligible for the use of low dose CT lung cancer screening in high-risk patients. GE Healthcare’s new low-dose screening reference protocols are tailored to the CT system, patient size, and the most current recommendations from a wide range of professional medical and governmental organizations. GE said all new 64-slice and greater CT scanners, and most of the 16-slice CT scanners that GE Healthcare sells, are now qualified CT lung screening systems and will include the new screening option. The solution is also available for some GE scanners currently in use.Spectral CT ImagingSpectral CT (also called dual-source or dual-energy CT) has the potential to become a major trend in the coming years, as all the major CT vendors are now integrating this capability into their scanners. Similar to the way a prism breaks visible light down into its parent chemical elements on the periodic table for analysis, spectral CT can break down X-ray photons by chemical elements. Spectral CT is based on viewing the same anatomy at two different kV energies. This can be accomplished with a dual-source CT scanner, or newer methods that either use fast kV switching between different energies during the scan, or detector elements that record different kV levels during a scan. Different anatomical features are enhanced at different energy levels. Instead of needing to scan a patient multiple times at different energies to achieve various tissue enhancements, spectral CT allows different energy views to be created from a single scan. Additionally, the spectral software can highlight or eliminate specific chemical compounds based on their atomic number, including iodine, calcium and metals. This allows differentiation between calcified coronary lesions and iodine contrast in the blood vessel. It also enables contrast and non-contrast images to be created from a single contrast scan, since iodine can be removed via spectral filters to create a virtual non-contrast dataset.Applications for the technology include definitive identification of gout, differentiation between different types of kidney stones to better guide treatment, improved metal artifact reduction and clearer identification of pulmonary embolism. The technology aids vascular image interpretation, especially in calcified vessels or in the presence of thrombus. The vendors say additional applications are being researched and all of them have made big investments in the technology in anticipation of its use in next-generation CT diagnostics in the coming years. Philips Healthcare has made a big push for spectral technology in the past couple years and received FDA clearance in September for its Spectral Diagnostic Suite, which offers a set of advanced visualization and analysis tools designed for its IQon Spectral technology. The software offers enhanced spectral viewing and clinical applications capabilities.Siemens has been the leader in dual-source CT for several years, but announced at the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2014 annual meeting it was relaunching its Somatom Definition Edge single-source CT system with spectral capability. The new feature allows dual-energy images to be acquired using a single-source system in clinical routine. GE Healthcare’s Revolution scanner also contains technology to allow spectral imaging. This is enabled via a very fast kV switching system, changing the scanning energy level back and forth between 40-140 kV during the scan using the same detector and X-ray tube.  News | Artificial Intelligence | August 05, 2019 Montefiore Nyack Hospital Uses Aidoc AI to Spot Urgent Conditions Faster Montefiore Nyack Hospital, an acute care hospital in Rockland County, N.Y., announced it is utilizing artificial… read more Related Content Siemens Go.Top CT scanner at SCCT19Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:05Loaded: 15.14%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:05 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Cardiac Imaging AdvancesChest pain is one of the top emergency department presentations and in the current value- and efficiency-based healthcare climate, CT may offer the most cost-effective option to evaluate these patients. Advocates of noninvasive CT angiography (CTA) say it allows for more rapid discharge of patients without coronary causes and can eliminate a large percentage of diagnostic catheterizations and reduce the need for nuclear perfusion scans. Clinical evidence is mounting for the use of CTA as a primary test for chest pain, as scans can immediately show any ischemia causing blockages, and a calcium score can identify patients with coronary disease. Patients without calcium and without any significant lesions can generally be discharged with the need or costs for further cardiac testing or overnight observation.  News | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 06, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Improves Heart Attack Risk Assessment When used with a common heart scan, machine learning, a type of artificial intelligence (AI), does better than… read more Videos | Computed Tomography (CT) | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: New Advances in CT Imaging Technology Cynthia McColl… read morelast_img read more
