Your Service to Your Country Is Invaluable

first_imgSince 1957, February 11 each year is celebrated as Armed Forces of Liberia’s Day, set aside by an act of the Legislature to be celebrated as a national holiday. But for Montserrado Electoral District #2 Lawmaker, the AFL deserves being celebrated everyday of the year, even if such celebration means just a line in every day’s prayer.Representative Sekou S. Kanneh made the assertion over the weekend in Monrovia in a brief chat with journalists. The chat was meant to express his appreciation for the appointment and taking over of Liberia’s first post-conflict citizen-Chief of Staff for the AFL; describing the move by the Liberian government as a single most significant strive in recent times towards empowering Liberians to take over their own governance.Brigadier General Daniel Dee Ziankhan was appointed by President Ellen Johnson-Sirleaf and took over the Armed Forces of Liberia (AFL) as Chief of Staff from Nigerian Army Major General Suraj A. Abdurrahman, who served that post since June, 2007.According to Rep. Kanneh, the appointment of a Liberian- Army Chief of Staff will serve as a serious motivator to AFL soldiers’ current state of mind in the defense of their country and people. “Now, the soldiers see a friend, a brother and a comrade whom they’ve known and trained with during the years. The soldiers know him and believe in him. That is what is most needed in any organization. This is a plus for all men and women in arms,” the Honorable Lawmaker said.“Although I couldn’t make it at the official celebrations, seeing the soldiers do what they did, no one has to guess it. Liberia truly now has an army it can rely on. They are discipline, they are trained and they are our own; and that is what we as Liberians need to understand and accept most: ‘that the army is what we’ve got and that it is what we must build to be what it ought to be; to be that force for good; to be that force that dares to defend,” the Montserrado Lawmaker emphasized as he watched local television stations relay AFL soldiers parade the streets of Monrovia.“All that I can say to these men and women in arms is that their service to their country is invaluable. Nothing is compared to their service. We love them and we appreciate them,” the lawmaker ended.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

OUTRAGE AFTER TOURISTS SAVAGED BY STRAY DOGS IN MALIN HEAD

first_imgDOG owners have been warned today that they face prosecution after TWO separate attacks on tourists.The latest incident happened at the weekend when a terrified and bloodied Spanish tourist managed to make his way to the Coast Guard station at Malin Head to seek help.He had suffered several serious cuts to his arms and legs. Staff there called in a doctor and the victim was rushed to hospital by ambulance for treatment.Donegal Daily has learned that this is the second savage dog attack on a tourist in Malin Head recently.Three weeks ago a distraught Belgian tourist sought help in Malin Town after driving there in his camper van after suffering multiple bites to both legs in an attack by a dog.Today Inishowen councillor Jack Murray told us: “I am very concerned about these incidents. It must have been horrific for tourists coming to see one of the most beautiful parts of Ireland. “I will be talking to the council about what action can be taken and I would urge all dog owners to behave responsibly so that both local people and tourists alike can enjoy visits to Malin Head without this happening.” OUTRAGE AFTER TOURISTS SAVAGED BY STRAY DOGS IN MALIN HEAD was last modified: August 19th, 2013 by John2Share this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:coast guarddog attacksMalin HeadMalin Townlast_img read more

Strong pace continued for meat exports in February

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest February results for U.S. pork and beef exports were well above year-ago levels, with pork exports posting the strongest February volume on record, according to statistics released by USDA and compiled by USMEF.Pork exports reached 197,025 metric tons (mt) in February, up 15% year-over-year, with value up 17% to $486.7 million. For the first two months of 2017, exports totaled 399,692 mt, up 18%, with value increasing 22% to $995.3 million.February exports accounted for 27.6% of total pork production and 22.9% for muscle cuts only, up from 23.8% and 20%, respectively, last year. January-February ratios were also significantly higher at 26.8% and 22.2%, compared to 23% and 19.3% in the first two months of 2016. Export value per hog slaughtered averaged $51.94 in February, up 18% year-over-year, while the January-February average was up 20% to $51.05.Beef exports totaled 90,417 mt in February, up 9% year-over-year, with value up 16% to $508.5 million. Through February, beef exports were up 13% in volume (186,905 mt) and 17% in value ($1.02 billion).February exports accounted for 12.6% of total beef production and 10.1% for muscle cuts only, which was steady with last year. January-February ratios were also fairly steady at 12.4% and 9.8%, respectively. Export value per head of fed slaughter averaged $276.96 in February, up 13% from a year ago, while the January-February average was up 10% to $266.34 per head.“With trade deficits being a hot topic of conversation, especially with countries such as Mexico, China and Japan, it’s important to highlight the sectors in which U.S. products are competitive throughout the world and exports are thriving,” said USMEF President and CEO Philip Seng. “The red meat sector is certainly in that category, as exports have helped fuel growth in the U.S. industry and, in turn, larger U.S. production has opened further export opportunities and generated positive returns for the entire supply chain.” Pork exports strong to Western Hemisphere and North Asian marketsMexico was once again the pacesetter for February pork exports, with volume up 22% to 64,990 mt and value increasing 28% to $116 million. This pushed the two-month totals for Mexico to 137,396 mt (up 27%) valued at $244.7 million (up 39%). Mexico’s strong demand is reflected not only in increased buying from the U.S., but also in relatively high domestic hog prices, as per capita consumption of pork continues to grow. Strong demand from Mexico helped move prices for U.S. heavy bone-in hams higher in 2017 — up an average of 4% year-over-year.For Japan, the leading value market for U.S. pork, February exports increased 14% to 32,178 mt, valued at $130.4 million (up 18%). For January-February, exports to Japan were up 10% in volume (63,755 mt) and 14% in value ($256.1 million). Chilled pork exports to Japan increased 7% through February to 34,682 metric tons.Other highlights for U.S. pork included:China/Hong Kong continued to take large volumes of U.S. pork variety meats in February, offsetting the slowdown in pork muscle cuts, putting the combined February total at 42,881 mt (up 5% year-over-year), valued at $83.2 million (up 12%). Two-month totals were up 10% in volume (80,893 mt) and 15% in value ($159.3 million). China’s hog prices dropped below year-ago levels in February and have continued to drift lower, but China/Hong Kong’s total January-February imports were still up 35% from last year’s record pace at 532,600 mt.Pork exports to South Korea, which were slow in the first half of 2016 before gaining momentum later in the year, totaled 14,649 mt (up 26%) in February, valued at $38.2 million (up 29%). Through February, volume increased 29% to 30,722 mt while value improved 39% to $83.3 million. Korea’s hog prices have increased an average of 8% this year even as production has been growing, which is indicative of strong demand.Led by a year-over-year doubling of exports to Colombia and Chile and solid growth in Honduras, exports to Central and South America were up 45% in volume (27,022 mt) through February while value increased 42% to $61.8 million.January-February exports to the Dominican Republic were also well above last year’s pace at 5,279 mt (up 28%) valued at $11.8 million (up 34%). Chilled beef to Japan, Korea and Taiwan continues to drive export growthJapan continued to solidify its position as the leading volume and value market for U.S. beef, with February exports climbing 48% from a year ago in volume (23,789 mt) and 55% in value ($134.3 million). Through February, exports to Japan were up 41% in volume (46,276 mt) and 44% in value ($259.6 million). This included a 60% increase in chilled beef volume to 19,404 mt. Japanese import data showed that U.S. beef overtook Australian beef in the first two months of the year, with U.S. market share climbing to 45.6% while Australia’s dropped to 44%.Strong momentum continued for U.S. beef in Korea, where February exports increased 11% to 13,093 mt valued at $86 million (up 26%). This pushed the two-month totals up 23% in volume (28,287 mt) and 31% in value ($177.6 million). Chilled exports through February were up 95% to 5,384 mt.In Taiwan, February exports jumped 33% from a year ago to 2,886 mt, while value increased 26% to $25.3 million. Through February, exports were up 28% in volume (6,477 mt) and 25% in value ($55.1 million). U.S. beef holds 70% of the chilled beef market in Taiwan, the highest of any Asian market. Through February, chilled exports to Taiwan increased 12% to 2,479 mt.Other highlights for U.S. beef included:Exports within North America are off to a solid start in 2017, with January-February exports to Mexico increasing 14% from a year ago in volume (36,235 mt) and 3% in value ($147.4 million). Exports to Canada are showing signs of a rebound, with volume up 11% to 19,446 mt and value up 18% to $123.5 million.Beef exports to two key South American markets increased significantly in value through February, with exports to Chile up 22% year-over-year to $8.9 million and exports to Peru up 68% to $4.3 million. The increase in Chile was achieved despite a 16% decline in volume (1,417 mt) while volume to Peru was up 16% to 1,130 mt.A rebound in the Philippines and continued growth in Vietnam pushed January-February beef exports to the ASEAN region up 33% in volume (4,774 mt) and 19% in value ($27.3 million). Exports to Indonesia, which set a value record of $39.4 million last year, are off to a slow start in 2017 with value through February down 48% to $3.5 million.Strong growth to most Asian markets helped offset a slowdown to Hong Kong, where January-February volume was down 21% to 16,131 mt, valued at $104.7 million (down 12%). Lamb exports still slumpingExports of U.S. lamb continued the recent trend in which muscle cut exports were solidly above year-ago levels, but total exports fell due to lower shipments of variety meat. February muscle cut exports were 123 mt (up 15%) valued at just under $900,000 (up 38%), pushing the two-month totals up 30% in volume (317 mt) and 33% in value ($1.9 million).Lower variety meat totals pulled total February lamb and lamb variety meat exports down 41% in volume (487 mt) while value held relatively steady at $1.3 million. January-February exports were also down 41% in volume (1,060 mt) and fell 4% in value ($2.7 million). Early 2017 highlights for U.S. lamb include solid year-over-year growth in muscle cut exports to Mexico and the Caribbean.Complete export results for U.S. beef, pork and lamb are available from USMEF’s statistics Web page.last_img read more

Scientists use 3D imaging to help model complex processes performed by placenta

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Apr 19 2019New three-dimensional imaging of the human placenta has been developed to help understand the reasons for fetal growth restriction – a condition which affects thousands in the UK alone.Across all species of mammals, vital life-giving nutrients are transported around the body by complex networks of blood vessels. Despite the importance of these networks, there is still relatively little known about the physical factors which determine the transport of solutes such as oxygen to tissues and organs.Now, new findings published today in Science Advances, detail three-dimensional imaging research by a group of scientists at The University of Manchester and St Mary’s Hospital. The research has opened up understanding about this vital life-sustaining process by mathematically modelling the human placenta.Related StoriesStudy: Two-thirds of pneumonia patients receive more antibiotics than they probably needIt is okay for women with lupus to get pregnant with proper care, says new studyDon’t Miss the Blood-Brain Barrier Drug Delivery (B3DD) Summit this AugustThe placenta is a life-support system for a growing fetus. The placenta contains numerous terminal villi, small structures containing disordered networks of fetal capillaries that are surrounded by maternal blood.The placenta is unique in that it performs the diverse roles of several organs at once. In particular it allows the exchange of oxygen and vital nutrients between a mother and her developing fetus. However, the importance of the placenta in conditions such as fetal growth restriction, a condition which affects 35,000 pregnancies annually in the UK alone, remains poorly understood.Now a specialist team of scientists made up of mathematicians, physicists, physiologists and clinical consultants, have used 3D imaging to help model some of the complex processes performed by the placenta.Dr Igor Chernyavsky, MRC & Presidential Research Fellow and lead author said: “In our new study we show how the irregular three-dimensional structure of a terminal villus determines its capacity to exchange solutes such as oxygen between mother and fetus.”Combining image analysis and computational fluid dynamics, we can now quantify mathematically the exchange capacity of individual terminal villi. We now anticipate that this advance will aid the development of larger-scale computational models of placental function. We hope that our new understanding of the role of placental geometry in fetal development will help clinicians address diseases where placental structure is compromised.”Source: https://www.manchester.ac.uk/last_img read more

A new approach to predict complications after surgery for patients with larynx

first_imgRadiation damage is something you can’t always see. There have been very few examples in the literature that would explain or predict who’s going to have a complication.”Matthew E. Spector, M.D., assistant professor of otolaryngology-head and neck surgery at Michigan Medicine Reviewed by Kate Anderton, B.Sc. (Editor)May 31 2019A technique that illuminates blood flow during surgery predicted which head and neck cancer patients were likely to have issues with wound healing. It could enable surgeons to make adjustments during surgery or recovery to improve outcomes.A team of surgeons at the University of Michigan Rogel Cancer Center found the approach so successful in a clinical trial that they closed the study early.Most people with larynx cancer will have radiation and chemotherapy. But about one-third of the time, the cancer will return or will prove resistant, leaving surgery as the next option.At this point, tissue damage from the radiation adds challenges to the operation. When the surgeon closes the wound, damaged tissue can interfere. For about 40% of patients, this will lead to a pharyngocutaneous fistula, a hole in the neck where saliva can leak out. It can cause bleeding or infections, keeping patients in the hospital longer, and in 10% of cases sending them back to the operating room to fix it. Source:Michigan Medicine – University of Michigancenter_img Related StoriesHow cell-free DNA can be targeted to prevent spread of tumorsCancer killing capability of lesser-known immune cells identifiedStudy reveals link between inflammatory diet and colorectal cancer riskSpector is the senior author on a paper published earlier this year in Annals of Surgical Oncology.Researchers enrolled 41 patients who were undergoing laryngectomy after radiation. After removing the tumor but before closing the throat, anesthesiologists gave the patients an intravenous injection of a type of medical dye, indocyanine green. The dye circulates within about 40 seconds. Surgeons then use laser angiography, which illuminates the dye, allowing them to observe blood flow.The results were clear-cut: patients with lower blood flow had a significantly higher risk of developing a fistula, whereas patients with high blood flow had a very low risk of wound complications.Knowing this, Spector suggests a few possible interventions. One could be cutting out a wider margin of tissue to get a cleaner, healthier edge. Another possibility is to keep high-risk patients in the hospital longer, while sending the low-risk patients home more quickly.The laser angiography approach would be straightforward to implement in many setting. It’s already used by other surgeons, including in breast reconstruction, so many hospitals already own the equipment. The technique has little impact on patients because it can be administered so quickly while they are still under anesthesia. Reactions to the indocyanine are minimal.Researchers are developing a randomized clinical trial to assess whether cutting back more tissue leads to fewer fistulas in the high-risk group.”We need to find an intervention that can lower this risk,” Spector says.last_img read more

Spotlight on role of automated trading amid Wall Street swoon

first_imgSome critics question whether the stock market’s recent swoon has been exacerbated by automated trading This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. “They are looking to buy the cheap ones,” Tabb said, adding, “most models actually dampen volatility rather than enhance volatility.”‘Flash Crash’At the same time, Tabb concedes that the proliferation of exchanges where stocks are bought and sold can result in limited liquidity on platforms. That can make markets vulnerable to a “flash crash,” although this possibility was mitigated with circuit breakers instituted after 2010.The system of automated trading is “all about supply and demand like it’s always been,” Tabb said. “It’s just a supply and demand at a quicker pace.” Another oft-cited risk is the tendency for computers to behave with “herd”-like behavior because they are engineered in a similar fashion. “Because of the design similarities, they tend to buy and sell futures at similar price levels,” said Peter Hahn, co-founder of Bridgeton Research Group.”When they are hitting ‘sell’ stop-loss levels at similar times they can add significant price pressure at the beginning of down-trends,” said Hahn, adding that the impact is more muted when trades are triggered by fundamental factors, such as an economic indicator.Kolanovic warned that the shift away from active investment could pinch the market’s ability to “prevent and recover from large drawdowns.””The $2 trillion rotation from active and value to passive and momentum strategies since the last crisis eliminated a large pool of assets that would be standing ready to buy cheap public securities and backstop a market disruption,” Kolanovic said. Explore further Since the 2008 financial crisis, investors have increasingly turned to computerized trading systems that have been programmed to render quickfire “buy” and “sell” orders based on economic data, utterances of central bankers or complex artificial intelligence software that employ algorithms.Though set up by humans, these trades are based on a snap assessment that lacks the subtle discernment of the human eye. Whenever an unexpected lurch on Wall Street slams investors, fingers are pointed at such systems that increasingly dominate trading. Critics have questioned whether the market’s recent swoon—which could result in the worst December since the Great Depression—is due to a liquidity drain and other unanticipated effects of the computerization of trading, rather than fundamental economic factors at a time when US unemployment is low and economic growth is solid. Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, in a recent interview with Bloomberg, blamed the uptick in volatility on the surge in high-frequency trading, a type of automated trading.Trading from quantitative hedge funds relying on computer models now accounts for 28.7 percent of overall volumes in the United States, according to the Tabb Group consultancy. That is more than twice the share from five years ago and, since 2017, above the percentage held by individual investors. JPMorgan Chase analyst Marko Kolanovic has estimated that only about one-third of the assets in the stock market are actively managed and that only 10 percent of the daily trading volume is the result of specific deliberation.But while the rise of automated trading is undeniable, it is less clear that it is responsible for increased market turmoil. Traders have had a nervous December, which could be Wall Street’s worst since the Great Depression Tabb Group Founder Larry Tabb said most electronic trading firms employ algorithms that identify and take advantage of price discrepancies between the price of a given security and what it fetches elsewhere. Greater market liquidity actually increases risk: study The recent tumult in financial markets has shined a light on the rising role of automated trading on Wall Street and whether it is exacerbating volatility. © 2018 AFP Citation: Spotlight on role of automated trading amid Wall Street swoon (2018, December 28) retrieved 17 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-12-spotlight-role-automated-wall-street.htmllast_img read more

Bottas leads Hamilton in British GP practice

first_img Motorsport 10 Jul 2019 Verstappen better than Hamilton on current form, says Horner Red Bull’s Pierre Gasly was quicker than team mate Max Verstappen in both sessions, fastest overall on an overcast and changeable morning and then fifth in the afternoon.Bottas had been top for most of that first session, however, until Gasly went quicker right at the end when conditions improved and a light drizzle ended. Verstappen, winner of the previous race in Austria to end Mercedes’ run of 10 successive wins, was third fastest in the morning.Red Bull team boss Christian Horner suggested earlier in the week that the pressure of trying to match Verstappen was getting to Gasly and he should just focus on his driving and ignore social media.The Frenchman was lapped by his team mate in Austria and his seat has been under increasing scrutiny.Hamilton has won four of the last five British Grands Prix and is chasing a fifth successive pole position in front of what is likely to be a record crowd and well in excess of 140,000 on Sunday.Renault raised their hopes with Nico Hulkenberg and Daniel Ricciardo seventh and eighth in the morning but they dropped down to 14th and 15th after lunch, with the Australian ahead of his German team mate.McLaren’s Lando Norris was sixth in the second session, another impressive performance from a 19-year-old fast becoming a fan favourite.Spanish team mate Carlos Sainz was eighth.Romain Grosjean provided a talking point of the morning when he crashed his Haas in the pit lane, smashing the car’s front wing and leaving debris on track after exiting. Alfa Romeo’s Kimi Raikkonen stopped on track, bringing out a red flag.

They displayed banners saying ‘ban all activities to spilt Tibet’.Sources said this was in reaction to a Tibetan flag being waved during the festivities in Koyul village near Demchok.Eleven people on two vehicles were spotted. They stopped for around 40 minutes and stood across River Indus on their side of the LAC.Demchok is an area that has seen Chinese transgressions in the past and in 2014 there was a fist fight between Indian and Chinese troops during a stand-off in Chumur, eastern Ladakh.It appears the action did not include People’s Liberation Army (PLA) personnel and there was no transgression or crossing of LAC.Sources said they are viewing the Chinese action as an intimidating tactic.China has been pushing to have its own successor of the Dalai Lama and pressing that any other appointment should not be given any recognition.”There were two vehicles with people dressed in civil clothes showing the banners. We don’t know whether they were PLA personnel since they were in civil clothes. Those protesting were on the Chinese side and made no attempt to cross over,” said a source.Sources added that the Chinese did not take up the matter in the official military meetings or communications.The Tibetans on the Indian side were celebrating Dalai Lama’s birthday, an annual festival by the name of Dole Tango.Also Read | Tibetan issue no longer struggle for political independence: Dalai Lama Also Watch | China roundtable: New Delhi buckling to Beijing by red-flagging Dalai Lama event?For the latest World Cup news, live scores and fixtures for World Cup 2019, log on to indiatoday.in/sports.
