first_imgDoctors of Indian Medical Association (IMA) Karnataka, wearing bandages stage a demonstration against the brutal assault on fellow medicos of West Bengal and press for adequate protection for their counterparts, in Bengaluru on June 14, 2019.IANSDespite the Karnataka Health and Family Welfare Minister’s appeal to keep the protests symbolic, the private hospitals in the state were shut for all out-patient department and non-essential health services on Monday, June 17. Shivanand S Patil had on Sunday appealed to the doctors in the state to limit their protest and not cause any obstruction to patient services.The minister had said that he was in support of the doctors and was empathetic to their situation. He said that it is the duty of the government to ensure the safety of the doctors and that they should not face any trouble while discharging their duties.The nationwide strike was called by the Indian Medical Association (IMA) in the wake of the recent attack on two junior doctors at Nil Ratan Sircar Medical College and Hospital in Kolkata, West Bengal by the patient’s family members on June 10.”All non-essential services including OPDs will be withdrawn for 24 hours from 6 am to 6 am the next day. All emergency and casualty services will continue to function,” said the statement issued by IMA. However, the government hospitals in the state will continue its services and will function without any halt.Karnataka Chief Minister HD Kumaraswamy has also requested the doctors to ensure a peaceful strike. “Assault on anyone is unacceptable. I condemn the attack on the doctors and request the doctors on strike today to ensure that their protest is peaceful and does not cause any problems to the patients,” read his tweet. NIMHANS doctors striketwitterAccording to the reports, more than 15,000 hospitals in the state are taking part in the nationwide strike and thousands of doctors will also join the silent protests. The most affected patients in Bengaluru are from the National Institue of Mental Health and Neuro Sciences (NIMHANS), where a large number of people have lined up for health services despite the nationwide protest. A large chunk of these people has come from other states for treatment.While most of the private hospitals in Bengaluru have supported IMA’s nationwide strike, several hospitals have disregarded the solidarity protest by the medical fraternity by not shutting their medical services.last_img read more

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Stay on target No two people are exactly the same, and their assistive robotic wearables shouldn’t be, either.Researchers from the Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering and the Harvard John A. Paulson School of Engineering and Applied Sciences (SEAS) developed a machine-learning algorithm to help tailor soft exosuits.“Before, if you had three different users walking with assistive devices, you would need three different assistance strategies,” research co-author Myunghee Kim, postdoctoral research fellow at SEAS, said in a statement.AdChoices广告“Finding the right control parameters for each wearer used to be a difficult, step-by-step process,” she continued. “Not only do all humans walk a little differently, but the experiments required to manually tune parameters are complicated and time-consuming.”But the new formula, detailed in the journal Science Robotics, cuts through that variability to rapidly identify how best to minimize energy used for walking.Drawing on real-time measurements like breathing rate, the algorithm can direct the exosuit on when and where to deliver assistive force to improve hip extension.“It is critical that the right assistance is delivered at the right time so [wearable robots] can work synergistically with the wearer,” lead researcher and Wyss Institute faculty member Conor Walsh explained.This method—”an effective and fast way to optimize control parameter settings”—allowed the team to achieve “a huge improvement in metabolic performance,” co-author and SEAS postdoctoral fellow Ye Ding said.In fact, the technology reduced metabolic cost by 17.4 percent, compared to walking without an assistive wearable.“Optimization and learning algorithms will have a big impact on future wearable robotic devices designed to assist a range of behaviors,” according to lead researcher Scott Kuindersma, an assistant professor of engineering and computer sciences at SEAS. “These results show that optimizing even very simple controllers can provide a significant, individualized benefit to users while walking.”Moving forward, the team plans to apply their optimization scheme to a more complex device that assists multiple joints—like the hip and ankle—at the same time.“Extending these ideas to consider more expressive control strategies and people with diverse needs and abilities will be an exciting next step,” Kuindersma said.

On Arxiv: https://arxiv.org/abs/1901.09926 The marriage of topology and magnetism in a Weyl systemcenter_img In a typical metal, electrons will move from a hot region to a cold one, carrying both heat and charge. In Weyl semimetals, however, the electrons near the Weyl points form quasiparticles that, in a magnetic field, can contribute to heat conduction without transporting charge [1, 2]. This charge-less transport arises because the contribution of charge from two pairs of Weyl points cancel each other out (inset). Credit: APS/Alan Stonebraker A pair of researchers at the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology has found that a chiral zero sound (CZS) effect can be induced in Weyl semimetals. In their paper published in the journal Physical Review Letters, Zhida Song and Xi Dai describe their experiments with Weyl semimetals and what they found. © 2019 Science X Network , arXiv Weyl semimetals have only recently been discovered, though they were predicted to exist in 1929 by Herman Weyl. They are topological materials in which electronic excitations exhibit massless behavior. Prior research has shown that fermions that adhere to Weyl’s theorem exist as quasiparticles in some solids—those that have electron energy bands that cross at points close to the Fermi energy. Notably, they behave differently than electrons in metals—they exhibit the chiral magnetic effect. This effect is observed when a Weyl metal is exposed to a magnetic field—a current is generated where positive and negative particles move in parallel and anti-parallel to the magnetic field. In such situations, the flow of current is zero because the particles cancel each other out. This changes, however, when the semimetal is placed in a parallel electric current resulting in a quasiparticle flow—an effect known as the chiral anomaly. In this new effort, Song and Dai have shown that the chiral magnetic effect can also lead to a phenomenon called the chiral zero sound (CZS), a newly discovered heat transport mechanism that can be seen in Weyl semimetals. Zero sound comes about due to vibrations, but it is carried by the momentum distribution of electrons when they exist near the Fermi Level. The study reports that they have existed all along, occurring when researchers place a Weyl semimetal in a magnetic field—now, the researchers have observed them in action. They report that the effect contributes to the thermal conductivity of such materials. They also note that its velocity can be modulated by altering the magnetic field. And they note that the effect can be measured using a variety of techniques, such as employing pump and probe. They describe their discovery as a “completely new sound mode carried by Weyl fermions under a magnetic field.”last_img read more

It may be that by re-shaping our radiation techniques we can extend survival for these patients.”The retrospective study focused on the cases of 55 adult patients with grade three or grade four glioblastomas who received radiation at UCLA between February 2003 and May 2009. Pajonk said a prospective study is needed to confirm the results.There is some evidence that many if not all cancers may spring from stem cells or progenitor cells that normally repair damage to the body, but that somehow become mutated and transform into cancer. In this case, Pajonk said the neural stem cell niche, called the periventricular region of the brain, may also be harboring stem cells that have transformed into brain cancer stem cells. However, the niche serves as a sort of safe harbor for the cancer stem cells, keeping them away from the site of the tumor but able to re-grow it once it’s removed and the malignant areas of the brain have been treated.Pajonk theorizes that the brain cancer stem cells in the patients whose niches were irradiated with higher doses may have been damaged or eliminated, giving these patients more time before their cancer recurred.“This suggests that the neural stem cell niche in the brain may be harboring cancer stem cells, thus providing novel therapy targets,” the study states. “We hypothesize that higher radiation doses to these The radiation therapy could damage neural stem cells as well as the cancer stem cells, Pajonk said, but those may be replaceable at some future date using induced pluripotent stem cells made from the patient’s own cells. The induced pluripotent stem cells, which like embryonic stem cells can make every cell in the body, could be induced into becoming neural stem cells to replace those damaged or eradicated by the radiation to the niche.For more information: www.cancer.ucla.edu FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

Despite the bewildering array of paperwork, forms, documentation and general risk to job and sanity, many teachers are willing to organise school trips abroad.If you have never organised one before, then it can be quite a daunting prospect. We spoke to one teacher who has arranged a number of successful ski trips (as risks go, these trips are right up there) and we thought it might be useful to pass on his advice. The following suggestions are tailored specifically for a school ski trip though much of the paperwork and ideas apply to any group outing involving children This will not be an exhaustive list, but it represents a lot of what needs to be covered.Use a recommended travel firmSpeak to friends and colleagues about firms they have used before. These companies take the headache out of searching for flight times, dates and locations and have their own reps both abroad and at home who help out. They should also have comprehensive processes and documentation in place which take some of the responsibility off the organiser.Choose your destination carefullyDepending on the age of the kids, the chances are they will be let out in groups of three or four to do their own thing for a couple of hours a day. Choose a destination with minimum traffic where pupils can move around safely and that has shops and amenities which are within walking distance of your accommodation.Documentation you will needThis is the really tedious part. The list below is an outline of the minimum documentation which you will require:• Travel insurance policy – details of the policy and who to contact in the event of a serious accident.• Risk Assessment (yours) – outline all potential risks and mitigating actions which you propose to take.• Risk Management System (the travel firm’s) – your travel company should have documentation regarding their own risk mitigation.• Parent/guardian contact details – this is vital for medical emergencies as well as the numerous other reasons you might need to contact them.• Medical details – each child’s parents need to provide details of allergies, family doctor, medical conditions, whether the child can be given paracetamol or not, and they must agree to any treatment which medical professionals in situ recommend. Pre-existing conditions must be declared to the insurance company beforehand – usually by the parent.• Passport – each child will need a valid passport. Ensure that the nationality of the child allows them entry to the destination country without a visa. Staff should have a record of all passport numbers, expiry dates etc. Note as well, that some countries (like the US for example) require the passport to have a minimum of six months validity in order to stay in the country.• Communication chain – if there is going to be a serious delay, calling a large number of parents from abroad is expensive and time consuming. Ensure that colleagues in the UK can be called and are each responsible for contacting a set number of parents.• Code of conduct – expected standards of behaviour should be defined and the penalties for transgression of the rules outlined. These should be signed by pupils and counter-signed by parents.• Photographs – each pupil should bring two photos. One for the ski pass and one to distribute to the authorities should a child go missing.• Tickets and travel documents – get the tickets in a timely manner so that any errors can be corrected. Ensure that you have supplied the names that are on the passports. For example “James” is different to “Jamie”. Pupils are sometimes called by a perfectly sensible-sounding first name which actually turns out to be a middle name.• Disclaimers – some activities will require pupils’ parents or guardians to sign a disclaimer. Medical needsParents of a pupil with a pre-existing condition need to be consulted before the child can be accepted on the trip. Severe diabetes, for example, can be difficult to manage, and the unexpected exertions and calorie-burn for the novice skier can cause problems for even children who are good at managing their condition. Any teacher organising a ski trip should take the following to dispense to those who have forgotten/lost their own supplies:• High factor suncream• After-sun• Lip salves• Paracetamol• Sick bags (pupils prone to sickness should bring pills)• Travel wipes• PlastersTravellingPupils travelling abroad together tend to be an excitable bunch and moving a large group through a busy airport is tough. A ratio of one adult to ten pupils is generally the legal minimum though the teacher we spoke to says he prefers one to eight. The pupils should be divided up equally between the staff and then move, check-in and clear security as individual groups. It is quicker, more efficient and pupils are more easily accounted for.Airport security can be difficult with children and it must be impressed upon them that jokes and flippant comments can potentially cause serious consequences. They should also all be made aware in advance of what can and can’t be taken through security. The rules on liquids in particular mean that many pupils have their toiletries confiscated. See article Fluid dynamics – the rules about taking liquids through security.InjuriesThe major worry for teachers who embark upon these trips is injury to the children and the resulting fall-out upon their return. The teacher we spoke to had experienced dealing with a number of children with broken bones as a result of skiing accidents and suggested the following:“The main thing to be aware of is that staff should never ski with the children unless there is a qualified ski instructor present as well, since medical insurance can be invalidated. Parents accept there’s a risk associated with skiing and if accidents happen – which they will – as long as a qualified ski instructor is with the class, the teacher can feel confident that he or she is following procedure.” “The medics in ski resorts are more experienced at dealing with sports injuries than the majority of doctors in the UK. If I broke something, I’d prefer to be in a ski resort than anywhere else.”A final thing to think about is that there’s likely to be an excess with the medical insurance which either the child can pay (should they have plenty of spending money) or failing that, the teacher will have stump up the cash and then ask for reimbursement from the parents when the party returns.CostingTo run an expensive trip you are clearly going to need parents who can afford it and this will not be possible in many schools. Should you want to run a ski trip, the costs can be kept down by using a coach, rather than flying and also by going outside the school holidays though this would mean taking time off school.Additionally, resorts in countries like Bulgaria for example are far cheaper than the likes of Val D’Isere in France or Aspen in Colorado and so money can be saved there too. A large kitty for staff is not necessary. The teacher we spoke to suggested charging an extra £5-10 per child to cover things like prizes for pupils and buying necessary supplies for the trip.FinancesMany schools will have a finance person in the office to coordinate payment by parents – those paying in a lump sum or in instalments. If you run the money side yourself then make sure you are 100% accurate – preferably using a spreadsheet to keep track of what is coming in and going out. Most travel companies will ask for an initial deposit of £50 – £100 per child and then it is up to you to work out a payment schedule for the balance of the trip.Finally…The company you choose can make a big difference and it’s important to try and cultivate a good relationship with your point of contact there. You’ll inevitably have a lot of questions about the trip (particularly if you have not been to the destination before), and you should not be afraid to ask them. When it comes to the safety and well-being of children, there is no detail too small to consider and thorough preparation will mean a safe and enjoyable trip for everyone concerned.For packing tips see: Travel Light: How to pack with hand luggage onlyReturnOne wayMulti-cityFromAdd nearby airports ToAdd nearby airportsDepart14/08/2019Return21/08/2019Cabin Class & Travellers1 adult, EconomyDirect flights onlySearch flights Maplast_img read more

first_imgBy Poly Pantelides HOTELIERS warned yesterday that the winter tourism season would see 50 per cent of the island’s hotels closed and a dearth of new flights, and it was too late now to do anything about it.The Cyprus Hotels Association (PASYXE) said it had managed to convince only 59 tourist units (hotels, hotel apartments and tourist villages) to participate in the annual special-offers package for the winter period.“PASYXE put in intense efforts and encouraged its members to stay open during the winter period assuming their finances allowed,” the association said in an announcement.But the number of those who were interested and the number of subscribers to PASYXE’s scheme went down from 65 last year to 59 this year. Those who did join are offering an overnight hotel stay for two from €20 for November. Unfortunately, keeping a hotel open is becoming increasingly costly, PASYXE said. Electricity alone is a huge part of overheads.PASYXE head Haris Loizides said over half of the island’s hotels would stay shut this winter. He also said it was “rather late” for specific action at this stage as the season was already almost under way with a “minimum of new flights operating”.Loizides, who met with troika representatives at the planning bureau for two hours yesterday, said the international lenders continue to believe that tourism could help pull Cyprus out of the crisis.He said PASYXE had highlighted some serious problems facing the hotel industry, especially when it came to loan repayments as banks were putting the squeeze on. He said in Europe the average interest rate for hoteliers was around 2.0 per cent to 2.5 per cent while in Cyprus it went as high at 8.0 per cent.Loizides said hoteliers needed a reduction in electricity charges and council taxes in order to survive at all, let alone stay open all winter.He said there might be some hope for winter 2014-2015 but work would need to start on that now. Despite diversifying the tourism product to include agrotourism, cultural and religious tourism, sports tourism and conference tourism in recent years to help boost the winter season, a survey published last month by PricewaterhouseCoopers said sun and sea were still the key criteria for 95.6 per cent of tourists choosing Cyprus.The data from the country’s statistical services corroborate the survey’s findings. At the height of the season in July last year, Cyprus welcomed 371,453 tourists, compared with 94,300 in March marking the end of the winter season. In November last year, around 84,000 people visited Cyprus, which indicates that the island is still failing to attract significant numbers of visitors outside of the peak summer season.The general manager of the tourist board of the Famagusta region, whose sandy beaches and water sports industry makes it the ideal summer destination, said that from the roughly 170 tourist units available in the region, only 20-25 would be staying open for winter, about the same as last year.Lakis Avraamides said this related to hotels, hotel apartments and tourist villages offering low-cost holidays to independent tourists mostly from the UK and the Scandinavian countries who used online booking more than travel agents.There are glimmers of hope, however. Avraamides is keeping his fingers crossed that efforts to liberalise the Moscow and St Petersburg routes will come through. Chartered flights from Moscow and St Petersburg are currently only allowed between mid-April and the end of October, though companies managed got an unofficial extension until November 10.After that, Cyprus’ second biggest tourist market and the two major cities through which Russians visit will be locked into the more expensive carriers of Cyprus Airways, and Russians Aeroflot and Transaero. Home to over 143 million people, each year tens of thousands more Russians are visiting.In 2010, 223,861 people visited from the Russian Federation compared with 474,426 in 2012. By contrast, though far more Brits still visit every year, those numbers are steadily dropping. A total 996,046 Brits visited Cyprus in 2010, a little over a million came in 2011, and about 959,000 chose Cyprus in 2012.The statistical services figures show between 1998 and 2009 the numbers of visiting Brits were always above the one million mark. But with the exception of this February and March when an uncertain financial climate kept visitors away, visits from Russia have been increasing each month in 2012 and 2013.But for hotels to stay open throughout the year, they need to have some kind of guarantee people will come, Avraamides said “or else why bother incurring the costs?” Allowing charter flights throughout the year would go a long way towards meeting those guarantees, he added.Some progress has been made towards an open-skies policy, and the communications ministry has liberalised flights with Ukraine. And Latvian airline Air Baltic will be carrying out year-round flights from Riga to Larnaca once a week as of this Monday.The head of the Larnaca tourist board Dinos Lefkaritis said this might raise the numbers of tourists from Latvia. Just a few hundred tourists from Latvia visit every month and the country is not even included in the statistical services’ interim summaries of main arrivals.But Lefkaritis said they hoped tourists from neighbouring countries could now connect through Riga. And the head of the Association of Cyprus Travel Agents (ACTA) Yiannis Michaelides even suggested the Latvian route could be an “easy and practical choice” for people from Russia, and might help Cypriots connect to Europe’s cities. A more blunt way of putting it would be getting to and out of Cyprus is hard and people often have no choice but to take connecting flights.Back in March when an eleventh hour international bailout was agreed for Cyprus, the troika of lenders referred to tourism in the memorandum of understanding as “an important potential driver of future growth”. The word they chose was “potential,” a word whose choice becomes evident during a winter stroll across the empty sandy stretches of Ayia Napa that just a few months ago were buzzing with life.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementCardiologist: This Is What Happens To Your Body When You Eat GlutenGundry MD PrebioThrive Probiotic SupplementUndo Pensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCruise passenger airlifted to Paphos hospitalUndoRemand for pair in alleged property fraud (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
