TORONTO — Environmentalist David Suzuki and former bank economist Jeff Rubin have kicked off a cross-country speaking tour calling for a fusion of ecology with economics.The pair, authors of recently published books, appeared Sunday at the Word on the Street book festival in Toronto. They called for the environment to stop taking a back seat to economic concerns such as jobs and growth.Suzuki says economists and decision-makers in finance and politics should start thinking about ecological principles — concern for the rules that let species survive — and ensure their decisions incorporate environmental sustainability.Rubin, former chief economist for CIBC, argues that the first step is to realize endless growth is short-sighted, given the finite supply of easily accessible resources and the environmental toll of consumption and industry.The tour includes eight more talks in six provinces and ends Nov. 8 in Victoria.Jeff Rubin has also been critical of Enbridge’s Northern Gateway pipeline, which proposes to take Alberta oil sands to Asia via the ecological sensitive regions of British Columbia. The economist believes Canada should stop exporting raw bitumen and build refinery capacity in Canada to export higher value-added petroleum products like gasoline and diesel.“The export of raw bitumen is simply not in Canada’s long-term economic interests,” Mr. Rubin said in a blog post on his website. “And regardless of the economics, the Great Bear is no place for oil pipelines, oil refineries, or oil tanker traffic. That’s why I’m supporting Coastal First Nations and WWF as they say ‘No’ to the proposed Northern Gateway pipeline and I will be supporting their efforts to secure a more sustainable future for the Great Bear region.”With files from Financial Post staff

The Protocol on Heavy Metals, ratified by 18 countries and the European Union, will be the seventh to enter into effect under the Convention on Long-range Transboundary Air Pollution of the UN Economic Commission for Europe (ECE). “Heavy metals obviously are something that cause great concern for the global environment because they travel throughout oceans,” Werner Obermayer of the UN Environment Programme (UNEP) told the UN News Service. “We have recorded cases where heavy metals are found in fish, which make up the bulk of protein intake for people in coastal areas and the Arctic region.” He noted that in Europe, fish is an important food source in the Nordic countries.“It is a very good development to recognize the link between environmental conservation and health,” he added. Adopted in June 1998 in Aarhus, Denmark, the Protocol requires parties to reduce their emissions of cadmium, lead and mercury – identified as being harmful to human health – to levels below that of 1990, or an alternate year between 1985 and 1995. The parties to the Protocol are also required to phase out leaded petrol, reduce heavy metal emissions from such products as batteries, and cut emissions from industrial sources such as iron and steel industry. The 19 Parties that have signed the Protocol are Austria, Bulgaria, Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Luxembourg, Monaco, the Netherlands, Norway, Moldova, Romania, Slovakia, Sweden, Switzerland, the United States and the European Union. Meanwhile, ECE members have agreed to consider whether to add new persistent organic pollutants (POPs) to a list of those banned or restricted under a separate protocol of the same Convention. That protocol came into force in October. At a recent meeting in Geneva, the parties agreed to a work plan for next year to examine the effectiveness of the protocol on POPs, which are believed to cause birth defects and stunt intellectual and physical development.

Hon. Sean Astwood: “What I am understanding is that the Police Force is saying to somebody, whether it is the government or the CFO, that they need these set of equipment in order to properly conduct their business in terms of the safe keeping of this country and someone is deciding what they can get and what they cannot get.”During the recent Appropriations Committee meeting it was exposed that some equipment is denied by the Government during consideration of the Royal Turks and Caicos Police budget.Deputy Commissioner Rodney Adams: “Madame Chair and Members that is correct. I can certainly speak to some issues where some requests have been made and was not approved as it relates to a number of pieces of equipment that was needed for the department.”Permanent Secretary of Finance, Athenee Harvey aimed to explain the dynamics of decisions. Athenee Harvey, PS Finance: “The Ministry of Finance, the Department heads, the accounting officers I lift my hat to them because there are a lot of difficult decisions – even the leaders of the Opposition and Members of the House of Assembly. It is very difficult to actually have to decide what you have to forego for a temporary period of time.”Hon Astwood posed another problem, “I thank you for that explanation Madame PS but surely there is someone who is deciding it is more prudent and beneficial to put extra money above and beyond what is budgeted for into the Sinking Fund than providing the equipment what that they needed; someone is making that decision.”It was recommended by chairperson of the Appropriations Committee, Hon Ruth Blackman that the issue be brought up in a more appropriate forum, namely, the House of Assembly.

X Two Houston pastors interviewed by Houston Matters on Friday weighed in on the decision by the General Conference of the United Methodist Church to define marriage as the union of a man and a woman, and to add more punitive accountability measures regarding officiating same sex marriages. Additionally, LGBTQ+ individuals are still ineligible for ordination.The decision was reached at the meeting held in St. Louis this week by the church’s General Conference. After several hours of debate, the conservatives’ proposal, called the Traditional Plan, was approved by a vote of 438-384.John Stephens, senior pastor at Houston’s Chapelwood United Methodist Church, told Houston Matters that his congregation is very diverse and that when the U.S. Supreme Court legalized same sex marriage in 2015 the dialogue changed within the church.Stephens, who describes himself as a “centrist,” said he could accept that pastors officiate same sex weddings and he finds that the decision by the General Conference has hurt LGBTQ+ individuals. “What they hear in this is that: ‘I’m not loved, I can’t be a part of this church’,” he noted.Some members of the United Methodist church say that embracing practices that are friendly towards LGBTQ+ individuals would be allowing sin in the church, according to Stephens, who thinks the issue of homosexuality “is right at the forefront of our cultural angst.”“We live in a country where same sex marriage is legal. Now, as a church, we can build our walls higher and say who we want to let in or want to let out or not go out into the world and be in ministry. I just don’t, I fundamentally don’t agree with that. I don’t think that’s missional,” Stephens added.In a post published on his blog, the pastor said he thinks the conversation about changing the Methodist church to accept LGBTQ+ individuals will continue.Rev. Hannah Terry, of Westbury United Methodist Church and St. Mark’s Methodist Church, told Houston Matters Host Craig Cohen that people are “anxious” and feel hurt by the decision. She emphasized that she supports people in the church that are LGBTQ+ “all the way.”Terry said the Westbury congregation has a history of including all people, going back to the civil rights era when the congregation welcomed African American families into the church. “The general conference does not change that,” she said.“I am really concerned about the LGBTQ community,” Terry said, and added she is particularly concerned about “clergy that are queer and lay members that are queer.”After the meeting of the General Conference, Kenneth H. Carter, president of the Council of Bishops, said he is concerned the plan approved this week will cause progressive churches to leave the denomination.Asked about a potential formal split in Houston congregations from the denomination and the General Conference, Terry responded: “I don’t know.”With nearly 7 million members, the United Methodist church is the second largest Protestant denomination in the United States.

The report also found that patient volume has been relatively stable over the years. “The estimated number of courses of treatment — a measure that corresponds to patient volume — was at a level of 965,620 in 2012,” observed Lorna Young, senior director, market research at IMV. “This level of patient volume has been relatively stable over the past decade, increasing at an average annual rate of less than 1 percent.”While the numbers of patients have been relatively consistent, improvements in radiation therapy technologies are continuing to drive capital purchases. IMV reports that managers of radiation oncology centers are budgeting for new equipment purchases that incorporate treatment technologies such as image-guided radiation therapy (IGRT), stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) and rotational arc therapy, which help to deliver safe and effective radiation treatments to patients.The research indicates that more than one-third (38 percent) of the radiation therapy sites in the survey are planning to purchase external-beam radiation therapy (EBRT) units as replacement or additional units over the next three years, including linear accelerators, CyberKnife, Gamma Knife, TomoTherapy and proton therapy units.Nearly half (45 percent) of radiation therapy sites are planning to acquire or upgrade their oncology information systems (OIS) over the next three years, with 80 percent of the planned implementations and upgrades of systems incorporating electronic medical record (EMR) data.“Additional drivers for purchasing activity by radiation therapy facilities are to increase the IT [information technology] capabilities of information systems and to incorporate imaging into all phases of the radiation therapy workflow, with the goal of improving the accuracy of radiation therapy treatments,” Young said. “As a result, we are seeing that the proportion of radiation therapy sites budgeting capital budgets of $2.0 million or more is expected to grow, from 13 percent in 2012 to 24 percent in 2014.”The report describes trends in the adoption of therapeutic techniques, equipment and radioactive agents. Equipment types covered include external-beam therapy units, simulators [including computed tomography (CT), positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MR) and X-ray simulators], treatment planning systems, IGRT, record and verify/OIS, and brachytherapy equipment. Other technologies covered include intensity-modulated radiation therapy (IMRT), inverse planning, rotational arc therapy, stereotactic radiosurgery (SRS) and prostate seed therapy. Equipment and software vendors covered in the study include Accuray, Brainlab, Elekta, GE Healthcare, Philips Healthcare, Siemens Healthcare, Toshiba America Medical Systems and Varian Medical Systems.For more information: www.imvinfo.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

(Courtesy Santos & Zurdo)150 chivosIf you live in Costa Rica, chances are you’ve seen Santos & Zurdo in action. According to Zurdo, whose real name is Fernán Castro, the band has averaged about 150 chivos (Tico slang for concerts) per year for the last eight years. Those shows have ranged from “private homes to bars to restaurants to music festivals.”Zurdo, who also founded the popular FM station Radio Hit in 2010, and Argentine bandmate Santos Gassiebayle, a guitarist, sitar player and producer, have released two albums in the past decade: “Souvenir” in 2005 – which won best electronic music album of the year in 2006 from the Association of Composers and Writers of Costa Rica (ACAM) – and “S&Z,” in 2013, which was nominated for an ACAM award this year.The two describe their sound as “electronic world music with lots of groove.”We sat down with Zurdo recently to talk about the band’s history, their forthcoming EP and the new song.Excerpts follow:TT: How did the band form?Z: In 2003, Santos was in a popular group called Amounsulu, and I played in Parque en el Espacio, a band I started in 2001. We met each other in the context of the world music scene that was very popular at the time, particularly thanks to the Mundoloco platform, which included a radio program, concerts at Jazz Café in San Pedro, and of course, the Mundoloco Festival.The conductor of Mundoloco is Bernal Monestel, current owner of the bar Mundoloco El Chante (also in San Pedro) and a percussionist and member of Adrián Goizueta’s Grupo Experimental. The original idea was to do an electronic music collaboration for Amounsulu, but we instantly clicked and a lot of new music came out, above all in the drum & bass genre.From there, we started playing live a lot, and that started to shape the way we played and composed music.You guys love playing live, don’t you?Apart from a few breaks, we’ve never stopped playing live, and our agenda includes about 150 chivos a year in any setting, from private homes to bars to restaurants to music festivals. Over the years the music matured and took new forms. Both of us incorporated new instruments, and we began devoting more of our time and energy to the profession. We’ve played more than 15 tours around Central and North America. …But that also meant our recorded music was limited, and there was a seven-year gap between our first recording, “Souvenir,” and the second, “S&Z.” So, in our current format, production is now vitally important. We’ll be producing a lot of material in 2015 and 2016.It’s also important to mention Luigi Jiménez, who joined our group as a bassist in 2010. With him, we got our groove and managed to solidify as a band. (Courtesy Santos & Zurdo)You’re letting us put the first song of your new EP out there for folks to listen to, and then you’re actually letting fans name the track?Yeah, the song was originally called “P8.” (Laughs) We’re putting this together with the help of Charly Fariseo, who has been our production assistant throughout the process. He’s spent many hours in the studio in my house, bringing order, which is vital when working on complex tracks. The song was first going to be mixed by French producer Silvain Garcia, known as Le K, who came to Costa Rica earlier this year, but we couldn’t coordinate schedules. So, we took it to Alberto Ortíz, in San José’s Jungle Sound Studio, and mixing was finished there. It was mastered at Audible Oddities in Colorado (in the U.S.).We can’t wait to see what people will create, what they’ll imagine when they hear this song. The photos that we’ll see and the song titles they’ll come up with – it’s going to be a blast.How do you describe your sound?We’re fusion music, and this particular track falls into the sub-genre of Etno-Something. The EP has four songs, and there are two songs in that style. Another is Sitar Hip-Hop and the other is funk, with vocals and electric guitar. This year will be 11 years that we’ve worked together, and that includes more than 1,000 live performances. We’re pretty stoked.Check out Santos & Zurdo’s new song, upload your photo or illustration, and name the track here. Also, join them on Facebook. Facebook Comments
President Luis Guillermo Solís during interviews during his visit to a polling station. Alexander Villegas / The Tico Times Facebook Comments One elderly couple huddled behind a post to avoid being knocked down by the flood of reporters because they couldn’t move in time. A child hoping to see Carlos Alvarado got squished and nearly trampled by cameramen. Costa Rica’s 48th president, Carlos Alvarado, as a tiny speck in the background. Alexander Villegas / The Tico Times Alexander Villegas / The Tico Times In our attempt to serve the public, we silenced others and ruined what was supposed to be a memorable moment for so many. And for what? There were multiple microphones from the same outlet lunging over people. Did we need to capture every single second of Carlos Alvarado voting on three different television channels, multiple radio stations and several other live streams? Was it worth constantly pushing through anyone in our path in order to get what we wanted? Related posts:We need to take a second look at our assumptions about gay marriage Trouble in paradise: LGBTQ rights debate divides Costa Rica Welcome to The Tico Times’ all-day election coverage in Costa Rica Why I believe Costa Rica will learn, heal and rise I heard several people complain about us, and with good reason. These are the people we ask to trust us to tell the truth; when they finally get a glimpse of us, we act like savages. At one point, organizers planned for Carlos Alvarado to walk between two lines of supporters. The plan quickly collapsed, and all of a sudden it became a mob of people trying to hang onto one life raft. I count myself among them. We were there to do a job, but it went too far. “I was just doing my job,” should start a conversation, not end it.There’s a lot of stress on the media to capture what it’s supposed to. The media landscape in Costa Rica is tough and competitive. Publications are constantly at risk of going under and looking for ways to cut costs; no reporter wants to be one of the casualties. I didn’t feel good about what I did, and neither did several others. There was a problem at the polls this Sunday that didn’t get coverage from the press, and that’s because the press was the problem.I was part of the problem, too.The way that we swarmed candidates at voting centers with complete disregard to voters was an embarrassment. Dozens of camera operators, television anchors, radio reporters, photographers and reporters from online publications swarmed the candidates in a physical free-for-all that was more paparazzi-like brawl than journalism. It would’ve been one thing if it were only journalists jostling around and getting elbowed, pushed around and squished, but it wasn’t.Dozens of voters, children and senior citizens hoping to catch a glimpse of their candidate were trapped in the middle of the frenzy, or pushed out altogether. Protesters hoping to bring their message to a candidate were blocked by a wall of media all transmitting a single image; their messages were blocked out, too. We fought for over an hour to get same shot, the same soundbite, the same clip.Experience the huddle for yourself in the author’s 360 video of Carlos Alvarado entering a polling station. Move your phone/tablet around to view, or drag and click to explore the scene if you’re reading this on a computer. How many great stories went untold on Sunday because so many reporters were in one city, covering two people in a country of 4.9 million? What if each one of us went to an under-reported area throughout the country with the same tenacity we showed in that school on Sunday? What if we used our senior-citizen-trampling tenacity to tell the stories of voters or towns who’ve never had a national voice? What if we did that and showed voters a more human side of the national press, instead of being a soulless wrecking ball willing to trample them to get the same clip from a thousand different angles?We would be better off as a country, as a democracy and as a society. I know that daily news must feed the beast and it serves an important role in our society. But the rest of us, including me, can do better. Instead of taking a step back from the mob, we can walk away from it altogether and teach younger reporters to do the same.We can go somewhere ignored, a place in the shadows that needs someone to shine a light.To everyone who had a bad experience on Sunday because of the press, I’m sorry.Born in the United States, raised in Costa Rica, and educated in Canada, Alexander Villegas is a freelance journalist and photographer focusing on under-reported issues across Latin America. Alexander’s stories and photographs have appeared in The Guardian, CBC, the Tyee, Bluff, and others. He served on The Tico Times’ Elections Team on April 1, 2018. Jose Cabezas, a Reuters photographer based in San Salvador, said he was shocked by the level of chaos he saw.“You get some chaos in elections in El Salvador, but nothing like the level I saw in Costa Rica,” Cabezas said. “I really didn’t expect that.”On top of the chaos, Cabezas was surprised when Supreme Elections Tribunal (TSE) officials tried to block journalists from taking pictures of the candidates voting by placing tables and garbage cans in front of them.

Medicine importers have been awarded some €2m in compensation from the state after mounting a successful legal challenge to a 2005 government decision slashing drug prices.Last Friday, the Supreme Court ruled in favour of 12 members of the Cyprus Pharmaceutical Association (CPA) who had taken the state to court over the 2005 decision.The ruling reversed a prior judgment by the Nicosia District Court.The Supreme Court found that a 2005 decree by the then health minister ordering price cuts constituted confiscation of property.It ruled that drug importers are therefore entitled to “just and equitable compensation,” which comes to around €2m, plus interest payable since 2005.The court accepted the drug importers’ main argument, namely that the government had refused to allow a six-month transition period so that the businesses could sell their stock, which they had procured at higher prices.As a result of the government’s refusal, the businesses suffered losses. The government was fully aware of the drug importers’ warning that this would happen, the court said.The ruling comes one-and-a-half months before the Supreme Court is set to hear another appeal, again lodged by the CPA, against a government decision on drug prices taken this year.Back in January, the health ministry cut the price of almost 2,000 medicines by around 15.5 per cent on average, but in some cases the reductions were as high as 80 per cent.Health minister Phillippos Patsalis said at the time that further reductions of eight to ten per cent would be put in place in March, and even more when the national health scheme came into effect.Patsalis subsequently announced that the second slated price cut was being temporarily put on ice.But at the beginning of June, the minister issued a decree, under which the prices of all meds – except those under €10 – were to be slashed by 8.5 per cent as of June 29.Importers call this policy haphazard and dangerous, adding that it will backfire both on businesses as well as patients.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoLuxury Crossover SUV I Search AdsThese SUVs Are The Cream Of The Crop.
