This week all eyes will be on negotiations between Greece and its lenders, as the country approaches a punishing programme of repayments to the IMF, beginning in May. Today it was due to pay the European Central Bank (ECB) €79.8m (£56.8m), while its leaders are set to return to the negotiating table on Friday.  Bondholders continued to offload the country’s debt this morning, sending yield on three-year notes close to 27 per cent, an all-time high. Over the weekend ECB chief Mario Draghi urged the Greek government to take reforms more seriously. “More work, much more work is needed now and it’s urgent,” he said. “We all want Greece to succeed. The answer is in the hands of the Greek government.” However, Spreadex financial analyst Connor Campbell worried it may be too little, too late. “Hopes look like they will have to stretch beyond Friday’s Eurogroup meeting, with sentiment in the region largely suggesting that there will be little in the way of formalised action by the end of the week.  “Regardless, the tone is less doom-laden this Monday morning, and has allowed the Eurozone indices to escape from under the dark clouds that were covering the markets last Friday to post gains after the bell.” European markets shrug off Greece fears Share Show Comments ▼ Tags: Greek debt crisislast_img read more

Why some adults, even into their 40s, still see the pediatrician

first_imgAdult patients keep their pediatricians for a variety of reasons. Those with developmental or intellectual disabilities might remain with their pediatricians into adulthood, because changing doctors could be especially traumatic. Other adults may simply have not gotten around to shopping for an internist. But people with lifelong conditions — like congenital heart defects, sickle cell disease, or cystic fibrosis — can have an especially difficult time graduating to adult care. By Leah Samuel May 1, 2017 Reprints Related: He said that his pediatrician regularly consults with internists to coordinate his care, especially now that he is middle-aged.“Well, I’m starting to have some of the old symptoms, and we have to figure out if it’s the condition or if it’s just that I’m old and out of shape,” he said. “Before, when you had my condition, you didn’t live long enough for that to come up. I think that’s why the doctors at Children’s don’t mind that I still come there.”‘Jumping off the diving board into the deep end’While doctors have to be certified to treat children, there are no rules for when a patient must switch to another doctor once the patient reaches adulthood. The American Academy of Pediatrics recommended, in 1938, that patients be no older than 18 years of age. In 1969, it raised the recommended age for ending pediatric care to 21.But since then, the prognosis has greatly improved for conditions that once led to childhood deaths. Patients are surviving longer, to the point of outgrowing the need for a pediatrician, said Boston Children’s Hospital spokesperson Irene Sege.For example, 20 years ago sickle-cell disease patients were dying by age 30, “But now, they are living into their 50s or 60s, so it makes sense for them to have adult care,” Sege said.Some doctors and hospitals have responded with programs to make it easier for adult patients to leave their pediatricians. For instance, Seattle Children’s Hospital has a formal transition program, where patients as young as 12 get to know the doctors for grown-ups.“We try to make it as nonthreatening at possible,” said Dr. Jason Deen, a pediatric cardiologist at the hospital. “We tell the child, ‘Sometime in the future, you will see a doctor like me.’” Then the hospital follows the young patients, introducing age-appropriate health issues over time. “Like, at 16, we’ll start talking about sexual health and pregnancy concerns,” Deen said. But it can be a confusing and arduous process, especially for young adults with complicated health conditions, said Diane Pickles, whose son Jake, age 22, recently left his pediatrician. Born with hypoplastic left heart syndrome, Jake had been a patient at Boston Children’s Hospital since he was an infant.“The transition to adult care is like jumping off the diving board into the deep end,” said Pickles.By the time a patient with a chronic condition reaches adulthood, there is a well-established relationship not only between the child’s family and the pediatrician, but also between that pediatrician and the various specialists helping to manage the condition. Recreating that can be a challenge, said Pickles.“It’s hard to find a primary care doctor who will give you the time and the focus you had with the pediatrician for all those years,” she said. “Even when my son was 17, his cardiologist said to hold on to the pediatrician until they kick us out.”Delaying the switchThe late teens and early 20s can also be an inopportune time to change doctors, said Dr. Susan Arnold, a pediatric neurologist at University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center. “A child goes off to college, where it’s hard to get set with a health care provider in a place where they won’t be living permanently anyway,” she said. “So they follow up with their pediatrician.“I had a young man with epilepsy who went off to college,” she added. “I told him to see me on breaks and I would refill his medicine and do his checkups.”Insurance can also keep grown-up patients with pediatricians. In some states, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP) covers pediatric care up to age 19 or 20, leading some to postpone transitioning until that age. Other patients start off as children on family insurance plans covering pediatric doctors and specialists. Since children can remain on their parents’ insurance until age 26, these young people sometimes keep their doctors along with their coverage. Pediatricians take on new role: Fighting the bigotry and violence that hurts kids Haejin Park for STAT Related: A pediatrician’s plea to lawmakers: Don’t cut Medicaid Still, a pediatrician with grown-up patients can run into unusual situations, said Arnold, whose oldest patient is 27. She recalled a visit with a longtime patient, his father, and his fiancee.“She wanted to know about his epilepsy,” Arnold recalled. “But then, we got to counseling them on things about the wedding night. And his dad was in the room! And I’m like, ‘Maybe it’s about time to find an adult specialist, preferably a gentleman, who can answer those questions.’”Vetor jokes about being a “veteran” pediatric patient.“I’ve retired a few doctors and nurses,” he said. “And now some of them are younger than me.” For Vetor, part of it is the approach. “I really like going there. Pediatricians are more friendly and personable. And if you have a question, they have time to answer.”advertisement HealthWhy some adults, even into their 40s, still see the pediatrician When Jeff Vetor goes for his annual pediatrician visits, the part that usually throws the nurse is when they go to take his vitals. “The hardest part is when they have to find the right size blood pressure cuff,” Vetor said.At age 46, “I’m the biggest kid there,” laughs Vetor. He is a patient at Children’s Hospital of Michigan, where he has been treated for a congenital heart defect, called pulmonary stenosis, for most of his life.For a few years in his thirties, Vetor switched to an adult doctor. But when Vetor’s son was born with the same condition, he took the baby to the hospital of his childhood, and soon decided to return as a patient himself. “For a while he and I had the same pediatrician,” Vetor said with a laugh.advertisement Tags patientspediatricsphysicianslast_img read more

Senate Passes Bill to Postpone Local Government Elections

first_imgSenate Passes Bill to Postpone Local Government Elections SenateDecember 18, 2006 RelatedAttorney-at-Law Appointed to the Senate RelatedSenate Elects First Visually Impaired President Advertisementscenter_img FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail Two Bills were passed in the Senate on Friday (Dec. 15) to allow for the postponement of Local Government Elections for one year.The Bills, which were piloted by the Minister of Justice, Senator A.J. Nicholson are titled: An Act further to postpone the holding of General Elections under the Parish Councils Act and An Act further to postpone the holding of a General Election under the Kingston and St. Andrew Corporation Act.According to Senator Nicholson, the postponement of the local elections would allow for the completion of internal audits of the parish councils and to implement local government reform.He told the Senate that, “all of the authorities that have been audited so far are operating in clear breach of the government procurement procedures regarding contracts. It is of the utmost importance that the remaining audits be completed, and that appropriate remedial measures be taken to ensure that local authorities are operating with the required standards of probity, ethics and accountability before the elections of the new councils”.This is the second postponement of the elections, which were constitutionally due between March to June 2006. However, as a result of delays in finalizing the voters list, following the re-verification of the voters exercise, Parliament, in June, approved the Kingston and St. Andrew Corporation General Election (Postponement) Act, 2006 and the Parish Councils General Election (Postponement) Act 2006, which delayed the elections until no later than December 31, 2006.In the meantime, a resolution moved by the Minister of Justice was passed in the Upper House on Friday, for the Senate to appoint a committee to sit jointly with a similar committee appointed by the House of Representatives, to consider and develop proposals for local government reform.Members of the Senate that will sit on the committee are: Senator Noel Monteith, Senator Trevor Munroe, Senator Norman Grant, Senator Anthony Johnson and Senator Arthur Williams.

Audi recalls over 52,000 cars due to fuel line leak

first_img See More Videos Audi is recalling more than 52,000 luxury cars in the U.S. and Canada to fix fuel lines that can leak and increase the risk of a fire.The recall covers certain A6 and A7 cars from the 2012 through 2014 model years. In government documents, Audi said fuel lines have a compression point to make them easier to install. But over time, that point can weaken and may leak fuel.The documents, posted by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration earlier this week, say the cars were made between Jan. 25, 2011 and Sept. 13, 2013. Audi says no fires or injuries have been reported. Owners will be notified starting Feb. 5. Dealers will replace the faulty fuel lines.  advertisement The Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car ever RELATED TAGSA6A7AudiNews ‹ Previous Next › Created with Raphaël 2.1.2Created with Raphaël 2.1.2 2012 Audi A7 center_img COMMENTSSHARE YOUR THOUGHTS PlayThe Rolls-Royce Boat Tail may be the most expensive new car everPlay3 common new car problems (and how to prevent them) | Maintenance Advice | Driving.caPlayFinal 5 Minivan Contenders | Driving.caPlay2021 Volvo XC90 Recharge | Ministry of Interior Affairs | Driving.caPlayThe 2022 Ford F-150 Lightning is a new take on Canada’s fave truck | Driving.caPlayBuying a used Toyota Tundra?

Tesla’s Model Y crossover to offer 482-km range, 7 seats

first_imgTesla to raise prices, backtracks on closing most storesThe Dual Motor AWD ($69,000 in Canada) gets 450 km per charge, a top speed of 217 km/h, and a zero-to-100 km/h run in 4.8 seconds—it’s also available fall of 2020. And completing the lineup is the Dual Motor Performance model, also with 450 km of range and also with a release date of next fall, but this time with a trim-topping top speed of 240 km/h and zero-to-100 km/h sprint of 3.5 seconds. It also gets 20-inch wheels with performance brakes, a carbon-fibre wing, lower suspension, the brand’s Track Mode and more, for a price starting at $81,000 on this side of the border.Musk told the crowd at the reveal these numbers represented the hopeful worst-case scenario. “You never know, we might do better than this. It should be at least this good,” he said. But as soon as you start tacking on the fun stuff like the “full self-driving capability” that’s supposed to be production-ready later in 2019, things get pricier. That feature costs US$5,000 on top of the US$3,000 required for the basic Autopilot feature. The seven-seat configuration will also cost a US$3,000 premium. Tesla’s online configurator reveals five available paint options: Black, Midnight Silver Metallic (US$1,500), Deep Blue Metallic (US$1,500), Pearl White Multi-Coat (US$2,000) and Red Multi-Coat (US$2,500). Price aside, Tesla clearly has high hopes for the Model Y. Musk stated he expects the company to “probably do more Y than S, X, and 3 [sales] combined.” Pre-orders for the Model Y are now open. Expect more details to arrive soon via the usual means: Elon’s Twitter feed. Musk personally revealed Tesla’s newest baby at the Tesla Design Studio in Hawthorne, California on Thursday night, livestreaming the experience on its website. It was classic awkward-but-enthusiastic Elon, with some exuberant contributions from the crowd. Musk ushered in the entire range of Tesla vehicles by way of introduction, before giving an update on factories, supercharger stations, solar panels and more. After what he referred to as his “extended history lesson,” the Model X was brought out and the initial specs given. (Note: you should be able to catch the livestream here on Tesla’s YouTube channel sometime in the near future if you missed it.)As it was intended to be the compact-SUV take on the Model 3 –not unlike the Model X was to the larger Model S – the Model Y’s design shares much in common with Tesla’s smaller sedan. No real shockers here—all four passenger doors are normal, not in the X’s expensive “Falcon” style, and the body sits a little higher than the Model 3’s. It’s a crossover, don’t forget.Inside, that translates to 1.9 cubic metresof cargo space underneath the panoramic glass; and, in what might be the biggest twist of the evening, an optional third row that adds another two seats. The move is likely to be well-received by the three-row-SUV-crazed masses in North America. The interior, which is highly reminiscent of the Model 3’s, comes black as standard, but for US$1,000 Tesla will make it black and white, with white seats and white dash trim.With its battery pack on the floor, the Model Y manages a 0.23 drag coefficient; and, in the top trim, acceleration to 97 km/h takes three and a half seconds. Top speed is 209 km/h, and Musk also assures that it “ride[s] like a sports car… really tight in corners.”There are four variants in the Model Y lineup. The most affordable option, the Standard Range model, will drive 370 km per charge and top out at 193 km/h, with a zero-to-100 km/h time of 5.9 seconds. That costs US$39,000, but won’t be available until spring 2021. There’s the Long Range model, available fall 2020 for $64,000 in Canada (before rebates); it manages a range of 480 km, a top speed of 209 km/h and a 5.5-second zero-to-100 km/h time.

CU-Boulder designing next generation of Internet to keep up with mobile users

first_img Published: Aug. 18, 2011 Share Share via TwitterShare via FacebookShare via LinkedInShare via E-mail Researchers at the University of Colorado Boulder are helping develop the next generation of the Internet — a more mobile version — and the campus’s Office of Information Technology is using this new technology to provide wireless service on campus buses and in some labs and classrooms.The university recently used the WiMAX (Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access) wireless protocol to extend its wireless network to the campus buses running between the Boulder campus and off-campus student residence halls located about a mile from campus. A tablet-wielding student in one of these off-campus residence halls can now jump on the campus wirelessnetwork while waiting at the bus stop, board the bus and ride it to campus, all during one uninterrupted session on the campus wireless network.”The Internet, and the way that people access the Internet, is changing,” said Dirk Grunwald, CU-Boulder computer science professor. “Internet access has grown increasingly mobile. Originally, only large mainframes used the Internet. That changed to desktop computers, laptops and now smart phones. The next generation Internet needs to directly address the mobile users of the future.”Grunwald is part of a GENI (Global Environment for Network Innovations) WiMAX project to implement and study atest WiMAX system that will be part of a collection of test WiMAX systems on several campuses across the country.While Wi-Fi wireless service — the kind most of us are accustomed to using in coffee shops and hotels — is designed for short-range wireless coverage, primarily inside buildings, WiMAX is designed for mobility and outdoor connections that can be maintained at highway speeds.The university’s Interdisciplinary Telecommunications Program, or ITP, is employing WiMAX technology in a laboratory setting to allow students first-hand experience with this technology.”The laboratory WiMAX system will open up opportunities for our students to study the potential for interaction between WiMAX and other wireless services such as the campus Wi-Fi service,” said ITP scholar in residence Kenneth Baker. “This allows us to research new applications of the WiMAX protocol.”Professor Timothy Brown, director of the ITP, will use the campus WiMAX service in a class to help students design and analyze wireless networks.”Because students in my class need to download large amounts of data, we need a way to do it that won’t take down the campus wireless network,” Brown said. “Our lab’s WiMAX system allows us to do our work without kicking off the wireless users in the classroom next door.Everyone is happy.”-CU-center_img Categories:AcademicsScience & TechnologyCampus CommunityNews Headlineslast_img read more

Ian Hayles, noted that work began on the systems in 2012/13, and that the majority have been completed.These systems include: Lottery Water Supply System, in East Central St. James; Bamboo Ridge Pipeline Extension, South West St. Catherine; Geneva/Ghetto Water Supply System, Western Westmoreland; Farmers Heights Water Supply System, North East St. Ann; Broadgate Water Supply System, South East St. Mary; East Portland Tanks and Bases, East Portland; Quaminus to Lionel Town Water Supply System, South East Clarendon; Cascade Water Supply System, South West St. Ann; John’s Groin Water Supply System, North West St. Catherine; Wharf Lane Water Supply System, West Portland; and Copperwood/Richmond Hill System, South St. James.“This administration has taken a policy decision to give focus and priority to rural Jamaica, and when it comes to water, we intend to be less reactive and more proactive. We are working for our people today, and at the same time planning for tomorrow,” Mr. Hayles said.He pointed out that Rural Water Supply Limited (RWSL) continues to play a critical role in the development of systems to serve rural communities.The State Minister noted that the RWSL will be carrying out upgrading and remedial works on additional small water supply systems during the year at a cost of $60.3 million, which should benefit 26,000 residents.These include supply systems in: Top Hill, North West St. Catherine; Windsor Heights, Western St. Catherine; Troja/Lassie Spring, North West St. Catherine; Grant Hill, West Rural St. Andrew; Kelly Spring, West Rural St. Andrew; Top Leinster/Devon Pen, South Eastern St. Mary; Seaton, Central St. Mary; and Haining, Western Portland.Mr. Hayles informed that work will also begin on minor water supply systems in Eastern and Western St. Thomas; Western Hanover; and Smithville and Union in North West Clarendon.“Also in the works is a two-kilometre pipeline that will bring much needed relief to the people of Porus, Manchester. We are very serious when it comes to providing our residents with potable water,” the State Minister emphasized.Contact: Alphea Saunderslast_img read more
