The Latest: Companies respond to suit over Grenfell fire

PHILADELPHIA — The Latest on a lawsuit filed in the United States over a 2017 London high-rise fire that killed 72 (all times local):2 p.m.Two of the companies that are being sued by victims of a London high-rise fire that killed 72 have released statements expressing their “deepest sympathies” to those affected.The Grenfell blaze started two years ago in an apartment refrigerator and raced up the side of the building. Nearly 250 relatives of victims and survivors filed suit Tuesday in Philadelphia against three companies that made products used in the building.Whirlpool says in its statement that two investigations found “no evidence of any fault” with the refrigerator model in the apartment where the blaze began.U.K.-based Celotex says it remains committed to working with British authorities. Celotex’s parent company, Saint-Gobain, says it was surprised to see a lawsuit filed in the U.S. since the Celotex insulation referenced in the suit was manufactured and sold in the U.K.____11:35 a.m.A lawsuit filed in the United States says faulty building materials helped spread a fire at London’s Grenfell Tower in 2017.More than 200 relatives of victims and survivors joined the suit, which targets U.S. companies that made products used at the complex. It was filed in a state court in Philadelphia on Tuesday.It would be up to a jury to decide how much money to award.The blaze started in a refrigerator and raced up the side of the 24-story building two years ago June 14, killing 72 people.The plaintiffs’ lawyers say the exterior cladding was made of highly flammable material that can’t be used in U.S. skyscrapers.The suit names refrigerator maker Whirlpool, cladding manufacturer Arconic Inc. and insulation maker Celotex.Messages seeking comment were emailed to all three companies.___5:45 a.m.An American lawyer known for winning huge legal awards over deadly construction accidents plans to hold a news conference in Philadelphia on the 2017 apartment fire in London that killed 72 people.The BBC has reported that more than 100 people plan to join a product liability lawsuit targeting U.S. companies that make products used at the complex.It’s not clear if lawyer Robert Mongeluzzi plans to announce he’s filing such a case, but he is set to speak Tuesday about the Grenfell Tower fire.Thursday marks the two-year anniversary of the fire and the usual deadline to seek damages under U.S. law.Mongeluzzi has helped clients win judgments for a 2015 Amtrak train derailment and for a 2013 Salvation Army store collapse.He declined to comment Monday on the case.The Associated Press read more

CannTrust board kept in dark on unlicensed grow room Interim CEO

Companies in this story: (TSX:TRST) VAUGHAN, Ont. — The interim chief executive of CannTrust Holdings Inc. said the board was kept in the dark about unlicensed growing at its Ontario greenhouse and only learned of the allegations after Health Canada notified the pot company of its discovery.  Robert Marcovitch would not address questions about who gave the direction to start cultivating pot in five rooms before receiving government approval as its internal investigation is ongoing.The former U.S. sports executive stepped into the top job at the Vaughan, Ont.-based cannabis company last week after it terminated its chief executive and demanded its board chair resign as Health Canada investigates allegations of illegal pot growing at a CannTrust greenhouse.Last Thursday, CannTrust announced that it had “uncovered new information” during its ongoing investigation that prompted the board to fire its chief executive Peter Aceto “with cause.”Health Canada discovered during an unannounced inspection in June that the pot firm was growing cannabis in several rooms before securing government approval.CannTrust disclosed the regulator’s findings in early July and has since halted all sales and shipments as Health Canada continues its probe, which could potentially result in a suspension or termination of its cannabis licences and hefty fines.

BC cuts film and TV tax credit by 5 per cent after

VICTORIA – British Columbia’s finance minister has yelled cut on film and TV industry tax credits.Mike de Jong said Monday the province’s film tax credit rate will be chopped by five per cent to 28 per cent and could save the province up to $100 million annually.He said the subsidy was forecast to cost the government almost $500 million this year, up from the average of $313 million over the past three years, and the strong American dollar has made the province even more attractive to the industry.The changes are subject to approval of the legislature and are scheduled to be implemented in October when productions of new television episodes usually start.De Jong said the revised tax credit structure was reached after meetings between the industry and government.“My guess is the industry would have preferred to not have this conversation at all, but I will say on their behalf they recognized we were heading into territory that was unsustainable from the point of view of fairness to other sectors in the economy,” said de Jong.He said the cut will not harm the industry in B.C.“There are still extremely good days ahead for the film and television production sector in B.C.,” said de Jong.In California, where the film industry is worth $17 billion annually, the state offers $330 million in tax credits, said a B.C. Finance Ministry statement.The B.C. tax credit is one of several advantages the province offers to the film industry, de Jong said. Others benefits include a talented and experienced workforce, excellent locations and being in the same time zone as California.“Our objective here was to work with the industry to arrive at a reasonable place that recognizes the importance of the film-television production sector to B.C., recognizing the tens of thousands of jobs associated with the sector, but is fair to other sectors of the economy.”The Motion Picture Industry Association of BC said in a statement the tax changes are a result of measured revisions that address the needs of the industry and government.“B.C.’s $2-billion film and television industry is built on three decades of collaboration private-public investment and represents thousands of B.C. jobs,” said association chairman Peter Leitch in a statement. “Together we have a vested interest in its long-term growth and sustainability.”Opposition New Democrat film and TV critic Spencer Chandra Herbert said reducing the tax credit could result in film production companies choosing to work in Ontario, where the film tax structure is more generous.

Steelers Legend LC Greenwood Dies

Photo by bestsportsphotos.com.L.C. Greenwood, one of the dominant defensive figures of the Super Bowl champion Pittsburgh Steelers of the 1970s, died of natural causes Sunday in a Pittsburgh hospital. He was 67.Greenwood was a six-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman, a key component of the “Steel Curtain” that was a big part of the team’s four championships in six seasons.“L.C. was one of the most beloved Steelers during the most successful period in team history, and he will be missed by the entire organization,” team chairman Dan Rooney said in a statement.Greenwood, “Mean” Joe Greene, Ernie Holmes and Dwight White formed the bedrock of the defense that helped turn a perennial loser into a dynasty.L.C. Henderson Greenwood was born Sept. 8, 1946, in Canton, Miss., the oldest of nine children. He was taken in the tenth round of the 1969 NFL draft — nine rounds after Greene — from Arkansas A&M (now Arkansas Pine-Bluff). He blossomed into a tenacious pass rusher who used his superior speed to blow past offensive tackles and into the backfield. Though sacks did not become an official statistic until after his retirement, Greenwood posted 73½ during his 13-year career.The 6-foot-6-inch, 245-pound Greenwood thrived in the postseason. Greenwood was a showman. While recovering from an ankle injury during the 1973 season, Greenwood wore a pair of high-top cleats that a friend painted gold. He wore them twice — both Steelers wins — and went back to his usual cleats after the ankle healed. The Steelers lost the next game, and the gold cleats soon returned.Knee problems forced Greenwood to retire before the 1982 season. He remained in Pittsburgh after his retirement, working as an entrepreneur and motivational speaker.Despite support from his teammates — including Greene — Greenwood has not been enshrined in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. He was a finalist six times, the last in 2006. read more

Suspect in childs death requests bench trial

first_imgA Battle Ground man accused of killing his girlfriend’s 3-year-old son in May 2016 has requested a bench trial with no jury.The trial for Ricardo Gutierrez is scheduled to begin Nov. 27 in front of Clark County Superior Court Judge Robert Lewis.Gutierrez, 40, previously pleaded not guilty to first-degree domestic violence murder and second-degree domestic violence assault for allegedly beating and stabbing Jose “Pepe” Castillo-Cisneros to death May 23, 2016, at their Battle Ground home. He was not the boy’s father.Clark County Prosecuting Attorney Tony Golik and Deputy Prosecutor Colin Hayes are handling the case.During a morning hearing Thursday, Gutierrez formally waived his right to a jury trial. His attorney, Ed Dunkerly, however, was adamant that the waiver was on the condition that Lewis, who’s currently the assigned judge, would preside over the trial.Lewis told the defense that he couldn’t guarantee that, because unforeseen circumstances are always possible. But Gutierrez went forward with the decision, anyway.The prosecution and defense also agreed that statements Gutierrez made to Battle Ground police on May 23 are inadmissible at trial but could be used for impeachment purposes if Gutierrez testifies and makes inconsistent statements.Gutierrez attacked Pepe after the child reportedly became upset over a movie he didn’t want to watch, according to a probable cause affidavit filed in Superior Court.Gutierrez also is accused of harming the boy’s mother, Yadira Cisneros-Sanchez, as she tried to stop him. Police said she suffered injuries to her leg, arm and neck.last_img read more

Olivier Giroud reveals Chelsea frustrations

first_imgA frustrated Olivier Giroud admits life on the bench at Chelsea hasn’t been easy amid ongoing speculation linking Gonzalo Higuain with the clubReports suggest that Higuain is close to arriving at Stamford Bridge with Chelsea close to reaching an agreement with Juventus for a transfer this month.Manager Maurizio Sarri has decided to go all-out for his former Napoli star after being left unconvinced by forwards Giroud and Alvaro Morata, who has been linked with a move to Atletico Madrid.Now Giroud, who has only started six times in his 17 Premier League appearances this season, has discussed his less than ideal situation at Chelsea.“It’s not me who decides the team, making the starting XI, but obviously every single player wants to play every single game,” Giroud told ESPN.“As a competitor obviously I can’t be happy to stay on the bench, but I keep that frustration with me and try to transform it to positive energy to work hard in training.“It’s true that every time I play from the start I try to bring something to the team, to play my part.“But in these 14 games I started maybe only half of them, so it’s a bit difficult to be consistent in this case. You need to play a few games in a row to be competitive, so that’s what’s a bit difficult in this last month.”Harry Maguire, Manchester UnitedLiverpool legend Nicol slams Harry Maguire’s Man United form Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Steve Nicol believes Harry Maguire has made some “horrendous mistakes” recently, and has failed to find his best form since joining Manchester United.The France international joined Chelsea from London rivals Arsenal last year and ended the campaign with five goals in 18 games and a fourth FA Cup winners medal.“The first six months [at Chelsea] were very good for me,” added Giroud.“I needed to leave Arsenal because of the fact that Arsene Wenger wanted to play with a different kind of striker. My time was over in Arsenal and I was really pleased to sign in a big club like Chelsea.“I settled really well – it’s like I was part of this Chelsea team for a long time. I felt very good, with a good understanding with the players.“We won the FA Cup and I played a few games, and then I had the opportunity to go to the World Cup. It was very good for me.“Then after, when I came back late from the World Cup, it was a bit different because the new manager came and you have to start again, prove to him that you are ready to play in this team.“It has been a little bit difficult for me to be honest, this last month, but I will keep fighting to play in this team.”Giroud will travel to the Emirates Stadium this Saturday to take on old club Arsenal in the Premier League.last_img read more

Dose Monitoring Making a Difference

first_img The top piece of content in July was a video interview explaining how Princess Margaret Cancer Center is using machine learning to create automated treatment plans. This was a hot topic at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) 2019 meeting in July.  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.  Multimodality Dose Solutions Cerner displayed an updated version of its Radnet RIS (radiology information system) at RSNA 2015. The system brings dose data into the Cerner Millennium electronic health record (EHR), including it in the technologist and radiologist workflow as well as the exam report. Users can also include historical dose information in the patient chart.RSNA 2015 also saw the introduction of version 2.0 of Philips’ DoseWise Portal, now featuring an enhanced dashboard for patient dose data viewing. The second version also includes a peak skin dose reporting feature for fluoroscopy procedures and further integration with DoseAware Xtend for improved staff exposure data, bringing staff and patient dose data together into the user interface. Siemens rolled out several new modules, or Protocols, for its teamplay cloud-based collaboration network at RSNA. Teamplay connects radiologists, physicians and patients around the globe with clinical data to streamline and enhance the decision-making process. The new Protocols include a dose function, which allows users to compare their current dose values against institutional and national reference values, or benchmark their performance against other facilities for similar exams. Images are called up using picture archiving and communication system (PACS) Web viewers, and all information is provided in a patient-centric view. Dose values are normalized by patient size. SST Group’s RDM (Radiation Dosage Monitor) solution, also on display at RSNA 2015, employs a dose archive and communication system (DACS) to store and manage both current and historical patient dose data, including all captured diagnostic, interventional and image-guided surgical ionizing events. RDM is compatible across all imaging modalities from all manufacturers, with a browser-based user interface that collects data directly from the scanner for real-time monitoring and alerts.  XR-29 and CT Dose One of the most recent standards published related to occupational radiation safety in radiology is the XR-29 standard, released by the National Electrical Manufacturers Association (NEMA) in 2013. XR-29 focuses on optimizing radiation dose specifically for computed tomography (CT) and positron emission tomography (PET)/CT through four scanner features: DICOM Radiation Dose Structured Reports, CT Dose Check, automatic exposure controls, and pediatric and adult reference protocols. The mandates became effective Jan. 1 of this year. In May, Medic Vision released third-party software to help make existing 4-, 8- and 16-slice scanners XR-29 compliant. SafeCT-29 analyzes dose data in real time and alerts the operator if the dose is too high. If so, the software automatically prevents the scan until the dose is either adjusted or confirmed and justified. All events and actions are recorded, logged and available for review and audit. RamSoft introduced a new CT Dose Module in July, a cloud-based system that integrates with Scannerside dose software. The module pulls dose information directly from CT dose report screens and bookmarks the values directly into the radiology report; this helps streamline exam workflow and eliminate data entry errors. The module also helps evaluate usage protocols, compare dose rates against national averages and generate easy-to-read printouts for patients. GE Healthcare released the DoseWatch Explore software — which tracks, analyzes and reports on practice-level CT dose data for GE’s CT systems —at the 2015 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting. The Web-based, cloud-deployed solution provides an automated tool for dose data and analytics with no user-side IT integration required. DoseWatch Explore is part of GE’s Dose Excellence consulting program, where the company’s experts will help users create a dose team and customize a multi-step plan to reduce dose variation, manage risk, streamline reporting and enable quality imaging at the lowest dose possible.  Reference1. Berrington de Gonzalez, A., Ntowe, E., Kitahara, C.M., et al. “Long-term Mortality in 43,763 U.S. Radiologists Compared with 64,990 U.S. Psychiatrists,” Radiology.

Various studies have illustrated the harmful effects of excess radiation dose, but much is still uncertain as to its precise impact.New research suggests, however, that occupational radiation safety for radiologists has improved in recent years. The study, conducted by a team from the National Cancer Institute in Bethesda, Md., found that radiologists who graduated medical school after 1940 do not face increased mortality rates from radiation-related causes, including cancer and cerebrovascular disease. Researchers looked at records from the American Medical Association Physician Masterfile to compare cancer incidence and mortality rates of radiologists who graduated between 1916 and 2006 with psychiatrists (chosen as the control group because they were unlikely to have occupational radiation exposure). Male radiologists who graduated after 1940 were found to have lower incidences in both categories compared to psychiatrists.1 As studies like this seem to support safety efforts of the last few decades, a number of new solutions released in the past 12 months continue to expand dose monitoring capabilities and increase safety for staff and patients.  Videos | AAPM | July 23, 2019 VIDEO: Bridging Diversity in Medical Physics to Improve Patient Care Cynthia McColl… read more Videos | Cardiac Imaging | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: The History of CT Calcium Scoring Arthur Agatston, M.D., clinical pro read more Videos | Computed Tomography (CT) | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: New Advances in CT Imaging Technology Cynthia McColl… read more News | Radiology Imaging | July 22, 2019 AHRA and Canon Medical Systems Support the 12th Annual Putting Patients First Program For the past twelve years, Canon Medical Systems USA, Inc. has partnered with read more Video Player is loading.Cynthia McCollough explains new advances in CT technologyPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 13:56Loaded: 1.17%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -13:56 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Cyprus at The Fringe… via Athens

first_imgThe Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the self-proclaimed “greatest platform for creative freedom in the world” – spanning 25 days and hosting thousands of performances in over 300 venues across the city – will this year host a partly Cypriot production.Expendable Chapters, directed by 23-year-old Seta Astreou Karides, with a cast made up of Sofia Ioannou, Giorgos Orfanoudakis, Ioanna Apostolopoulou and Seta herself, will be performed between August 13 and 18. The four actors make up the Frair Theatre Group, which is based in Athens; Astreou Karides is a Cypriot, while the others are Greeks. The group has received support from the Cyprus Ministry of Education and Culture.Borrowing its title from Argentine writer Julio Cortazar, Expendable Chapters, according to the group, is a constant search for the right words, albeit with the understanding that the quest is impossible.
