BC protesters rally for and against Kinder Morgan Trans Mountain pipeline plan

first_imgBURNABY, B.C. – Protesters around Vancouver held duelling rallies on Saturday, some welcoming Kinder Morgan’s Trans Mountain pipeline expansion project with others decrying it.Several hundred pro-pipeliners, including a bus load of Albertans, gathered downtown to show support for the resources infrastructure — just hours after First Nation leaders marched with thousands of anti-pipeline activists in Burnaby, B.C.The Indigenous leaders beat drums and sang out against the project, saying they wouldn’t step aside for construction.Rueben George, of the Tsleil-Waututh First Nation, told thousands of protesters that it will take more rallies and protests to stop the project, which is set to increase the flow of oil products to 890,000 barrels up from 300,000 barrels per day.“It’s going to take gatherings such as this … (to) make sure the environment is not laid to waste and taken away from future generations. This is what we stand for today,” George said, speaking by megaphone to the crowd gathered outside Burnaby’s Lake City Way Skytrain station.The Tsleil-Waututh are among six First Nations that filed a court challenge to the project last fall, along with the City of Burnaby and City of Vancouver.The protest was led by elders and spiritual leaders from Coast Salish Nations and many other Indigenous peoples, with support from environmental and grassroots organizers.Protesters marched toward a traditional “watch house” they were building at Burnaby Mountain to oversee work by Kinder Morgan.George explained that Coast Salish First Nations would traditionally build a watch house, or “Kwekwecnewtxw,” to watch for enemies. He said the environmental threat posed by the pipeline expansion constitutes such an enemy.Squamish First Nation elder Robert Nahanee said expanding the pipeline will only add more pollution to the coast where he grew up.“My family was food gatherers. We gathered clams, crabs, oysters fish — everything. That’s how I grew up. Now we can’t even do that,” Nahanee said. “We need to stand up and hear our voices. My voice is: O, Canada, you’re on native land.”At the sparser pro-pipeline rally, people spoke about fighting the “greenies” and crowd members shouted out phrases like, “mitigate risk.”Stewart Muir, who spoke in favour of the $7.4-billion project as executive director for the Resource Works Society, said it doesn’t have to be a decision between the environment and economy.“Canada can have both. We can have the environment protected and respected and we can have the economic benefits that will allow Canada to be in future what it has been in the past,” Muir said.Bernard Hancock, who works on a service rig and grew up in North Vancouver, said Canadians need jobs to support their families and save for retirement.“The oil patch provides good paying work. It’s the only thing that ever paid me,” Hancock said.Jonathan Wilkinson, parliamentary secretary for the minister of environment and climate change, issued a statement Saturday saying he has come to support the project. He said the federal government is protecting the coast with its $1.5-billion Oceans Protection Plan and has consulted 118 potentially affected Indigenous groups on the project.“The fact is, the Kinder Morgan pipeline already exists — it has been delivering oil to the port of Vancouver safely for over 60 years, and carrying diluted bitumen for three decades. This project would simply add capacity to the existing pipeline, and we’ve set 157 binding conditions to ensure it can be constructed and operated safely,” Wilkinson said.On Friday, a B.C. Supreme Court judge granted Kinder Morgan an interim injunction aimed at preventing anti-pipeline activists from protesting construction at two terminals in Burnaby.The injunction restricts protesters from coming within 50 metres of the facilities until Wednesday, when a hearing on the matter will continue.last_img read more

With fuel stocks restricted UN mission prepares to relocate from Eritrea

“The Secretary-General is deeply concerned about the critical crisis facing the United Nations Mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE) as a result of the stoppage of diesel fuel supplies to the Mission by the Government of Eritrea since 1 December 2007,” a spokesperson for Mr. Ban said in a statement.On 21 January, Mr. Ban wrote to Eritrean President Isaias Afwerki seeking his urgent intervention to resolve the situation, but the fuel supplies were not reinstated and UNMEE has not received the authorization to import fuel directly.When fuel stocks run out in the coming few days, the mission “will be immobilized and rendered unable to carry out its critical functions.”In today’s statement, the Secretary-General voiced particular concern about the safety and security of UNMEE personnel, especially those deployed in remote sites where they depend solely on generators for energy to power communications and to preserve food and medical supplies. If fuel supplies are not reinstated by 6 February 2008, Mr. Ban will instruct UNMEE to begin relocating the Mission’s personnel and equipment from Eritrea, on a temporary basis. “The Secretary-General emphasizes that the temporary relocation of the Mission’s personnel is a contingency measure forced by the restrictions imposed on UNMEE by the Eritrean authorities, which are endangering the safety and security of the Mission’s personnel,” the spokesperson said, adding that this is without prejudice to the 2000 agreement ending hostilities between Ethiopia and Eritrea. He strongly appeals to Eritrea to cooperate fully with UNMEE, and urges both countries “to avoid any action which could undermine the cessation of hostilities between them.”Today’s statement echoed views expressed by Mr. Ban in a letter he sent to the Security Council last Friday.Last week, as it extended the Mission’s mandate for a further six months, the Council demanded that the Eritrean Government “resumes immediately fuel shipments to UNMEE or allows UNMEE to import fuel without restrictions.” On Monday, the Council once again voiced its concern about the fuel restrictions lifted. In a statement read out to the press by Ambassador Ricardo Alberto Arias of Panama, which holds the rotating presidency this month, the Council reiterated its demand that Eritrea “forthwith and without preconditions lifts its restrictions on fuel deliveries so that UNMEE be in a position to execute its extended mandate.” The Council also requested Eritrea to facilitate a UN technical assessment mission which is due to depart for the region tomorrow. 5 February 2008The United Nations Mission in Ethiopia and Eritrea (UNMEE) is moving to relocate as fuel stocks dwindle because of restrictions imposed by the Asmara Government, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today. read more

Mens hockey Buckeyes use four firstperiod goals to crush visiting Sun Devils

Sophomore defenseman Tommy Parran attacks the net versus Robert Morris on Nov. 4 at the Schottenstein Center. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Lantern Photo EditorThe Ohio State men’s hockey team (11-4-4) found the back of the net four times in the first period en route to a 6-1 blowout victory over visiting Arizona State (7-17-1). Senior forward and captain Nick Schilkey netted two goals for the Buckeyes, while sophomore forward Miguel Fidler, junior forward Kevin Miller, senior forward David Gust and freshman forward Ronnie Hein all added a goal a piece.The win marks the third in its last five games for OSU, who now own a 4-3-1 record at the Schottenstein Center this season.“Anytime you can go out there and score six goals, you’re doing something right,” coach Steve Rohlik said. “I was real happy with our start. It’s nice to go out there and kind of play downhill right away.”Gust opened the scoring for OSU just five minutes into the first period for his 12th of the year, with assists from junior forward Luke Stork and freshman forward Tanner Laczynski. Two minutes later, the Buckeyes capitalized on a 5-on-3 advantage as sophomore forward Mason Jobst and redshirt junior defenseman Matt Joyaux found Schilkey, who buried his 16th of the year on the power play to double the Buckeye lead.The Buckeyes, who were ranked second in the nation for first-period goals coming into the matchup, are now 12-2-2 when scoring first this season. Fidler and Miller added goals before the horn, and the Buckeyes entered the first intermission with a comfortable 4-0 lead.The key statistic of the night for the Scarlet & Grey was its success on power plays, racking up three goals on five attempts. Rohlik said that his guys were in position to score on these opportunities, and that winning the fight on the man-advantage proved to be crucial once again.“It’s nice to win the special teams battle,” Rohlik said. “Most times when you win the special teams war, you win the game — and tonight we came out on top of that.”Senior goalie Christian Frey quietly notched 35 saves on the night between the pipes for OSU. However, the Sun Devils’ got on the board with 11:32 left in the second period when freshman defenseman Brinson Pasichnuk powered a blueline slapshot past Frey on the Arizona State power play.Despite that, Rohlik praised the play of his goalie in the game, and said that he is a vital piece to the success of this team.“He’s our best player. He makes everyone look a lot better when he’s making those saves,” Rohlik said. “When you give up that many uneven rushes, and that many chances, it’s nice to have a guy back there that’s in the zone. But we don’t need to put him on the spot like that like we did tonight.”With 4:09 left in the second, Gust centered a pass to Schilkey, and the captain wristed a one-timer past substitute goalie Joey Daccord to extend the Buckeye lead on the power play with his second of the night. It was his 17th of the season and fourth in his last two games.Even on shots heading into the third and final period, ASU had opportunities to get back into the game, but OSU cushioned its lead. Hein added his name to the score sheet with 3:07 left in the period. Sophomore forward Freddy Gerard and freshman defenseman Gordi Meyer recorded assists on the goal.Schilkey had the chance to record his second hat trick of the season on a shot in the third period, but saw his opportunity denied by the crossbar. The senior said that although he didn’t his third goal of the game, the result is what is truly important.“I had plenty of chances (to get a third goal), but any time you score two goals, it’s good — and to put six up there as a team was great,” Schilkey said.With another matchup with the Sun Devils on tap for Saturday, Gust said that he anticipates Arizona State will bring more physicality to the second game right out of the gate.“They’re a big physical team, so I think they’re going to bring that (toughness) for a full 60 (minutes) tomorrow,” he said.Puck drop from the Schottenstein Center for the second clash of this series is set for 2 p.m. read more

The Internet of Things Is Steering the OnDemand Economy Want to Be

first_imgOctober 19, 2016 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals Uber is the company everyone wants to be. It’s the poster child for leveraging an internet-connected device to solve a unique problem. Uber couldn’t have existed before smartphones became a widespread phenomen, of course. But today we can all hail a car with a swipe and a tap, thanks to dual internet connectivity and mobile GPS.Smartphones were the first internet-connected devices, but they are far from the last. As the Internet of Things (IoT) evolves, these next-generation improvements will push on-demand businesses to explore hundreds of new possibilities.Related: 4 Reasons to Be Excited by the ‘Internet of Things’The game-changer here? Data. Connected devices and their data make every on-demand business possible.Sensory evolutionWith smartphone features such as fingerprint scanning, barometers, accelerometers, light sensors and more, entrepreneurs have access to data they’ve never seen before. And as smartphones add more bells and whistles, companies have even more data points to build around.Beyond sensory data from hardware, though, on-demand businesses can leverage a large quantity of stored data. Storing data around criteria like behavior, preferences and reliability allows companies to act more efficiently and optimize the user experience. For example, Uber wants to make sure users never have to type an address again.Along with data, the IoT is improving internet connectivity and voice recognition to provide even better user experience. These devices are getting smarter on their own, as well as collectively.A stand-alone voice recognition device is great by itself, but an Amazon Echo is even better. This device can access all the power of Amazon for tasks such as ordering groceries, playing music and restocking supplies — using just the power of your voice. Other devices such as Cortana, Alexa and the new Google Home will make on-demand services available through the sound of a person’s voice rather than at the touch of a button.Innovation on demandFor today’s entrepreneurs, all of these advances and countless data sources mean many more opportunities to innovate and win big. So, if you’re an entrepreneur, here are a few ways to capitalize as the on-demand economy and IoT evolve:1. Take advantage of predictive analytics.Uber uses data to provide rides, but it also uses heat maps to analyze patterns and help drivers be in the right place at the right time. Predictive analytics allows fresh-food delivery services — like Munchery and Sprig — to monitor supplies and spot and respond to trends. None of these on-demand platforms would have been possible without the data we have today.If you want to jump into the on-demand game, discern what problems you can solve using data. The most successful on-demand players connect these data points to provide a better, faster, more seamless user experience.Related: 8 Ways the ‘Internet of Things’ Will Impact Your Everyday Life2. Spot a profitable niche.Another great thing about data is that it no longer has to solve the huge issues. Entrepreneurs can now form companies to solve hyperspecific problems, with data to back it up. For example, Petnet helps manage the feeding of your four-legged friends. Its internet-connected food container dispenses portions at appropriate times and quantities for your pet.One word of caution: Make sure the problem you are looking to solve is big enough to be applied across use cases, but never be afraid to go small in your niche.3. Grab that low-hanging fruit.Because the automation revolution is happening across the board, entrepreneurs with industry expertise can solve problems for specific verticals. Smart-lock maker August, for one, saw potential in another on-demand stalwart, Airbnb. Hosts can use internet-connected locks to coordinate keyless guest entry, remotely and without hassle. This solution was not possible a few years ago — but the need wasn’t there, either.Related: How to Succeed in the On-Demand EconomyKeep streamlining and efficiency top of mind as you scout out your next target for automation. Whatever industry you work in, data and internet connectivity can probably improve a piece of it.With connected devices and their data, Uber and other first-generation on-demand companies paved the way for the Internet of Things to revolutionize our lives. Now, it’s up to today’s entrepreneurs to innovate the innovators.

The center, located in close proximity to the hospital, also offers general X-ray, mammography, computerized bone density and ultrasound.“We are pleased to offer patients cutting-edge imaging services and the highest quality clinical care with close-to-home patient convenience and superior customer service,” said Dennis Connors, executive director of Glen Cove Hospital.The center’s redesign provides patients with a streamlined check-in process and a comfortable and modern waiting room. The imaging areas are equipped with satellite work stations, which bring radiologists and technologists closer to patients.New to the facility is a Siemen’s Biograph 40-slice PET/CT scanner, which is used together to pinpoint and assess disease. The CT scan provides information about the body’s anatomy. The PET scan measures metabolic activity. Together, these scans can help physicians not only to identify the exact size and location of a tumor, but also detect whether cancer has spread to other parts of the body. “The PET/CT technology increases the center’s capabilities and is considered the gold standard for cancer staging,” said Steven Weck, M.D., chairman of radiology at Glen Cove Hospital. “The center provides patients with a range of services, from a simple sonogram to the most complex scan, and in a convenient, outpatient setting.”The facility upgraded to a Siemens Avanto 1.5T high-field MRI further enhancing imaging capabilities. With the new MRI, imaging can be conducted of the abdominal organs and extremities, as well more detailed imaging of the brain and spinal cord.As with all North Shore-LIJ imaging sites, radiologists and referring physicians are digitally connected to a picture archive communications system so they may view images via computer at their offices or any remote location.For more information: www.nslij.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | PET-CT | February 06, 2019 SPECIAL SUPPLEMENT: Examining the Value of Digital PET/CT Technological advancements in positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) offer both clinicians and pat read more Technology | PET-CT | January 23, 2019 FDA Clears United Imaging Healthcare uExplorer Total-Body Scanner January 23, 2019 — United Imaging Healthcare (United Imaging) announced U.S. read more X-ray images such as the one on the left fail to indicate many cases of advanced bone destruction caused by multiple myeloma, says the author of new guidelines on imaging for patients with myeloma and related disorders.

Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires

first_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo “Everybody adapts differently based on how active they are,” Geier said. “I think that’s been one of the challenges with (newly retired) NFL players is all of a sudden, they have this huge decrease in what they do. Even if they want to stay active, a lot of them, their bodies still hurt from their injuries in their career. They know they need to exercise more, but it’s hard. (They) try to cut back on their eating, but that’s become habitual, too, so it really becomes tricky.”Pollak said most guys who don’t lose a significant amount of weight in the first year never will.  “There’s not many resources post-football for the transitioning factor. There’s a lot of guys just relying on one another,” Pollak said. “The NFL and NFLPA (the league’s players association) want to say there’s all these different mechanisms in place, but they’re more superficial and aren’t really as beneficial when you start to talk to guys that are actually in places of need.”Like Pollak, many former players still talk among one other about this issue, and they talk to current players about post-football life. For them, it’s more of a means of accountability, not a way of measuring themselves against their peers. No longer are they in the league with external pressures to remain healthy; they have to rely on each other to be ready when the time comes to walk away. “It just becomes your culture. You don’t even think of it as abnormal because you’re around other offensive linemen,” Peters said. “If you’ve ever been to an offensive linemen dinner in the NFL, some of the stuff you’d just go, ‘Are you kidding me?’”The National Football League isn’t all glitz and glamor. Players live under rigorous daily routines, arriving at team facilities early in the morning for team meetings, film study, positional and team practice and drills, weight training, news-media obligations and therapeutic recovery or treatment of injuries. Finding a replacement to the arduous NFL routine can be tough after retirement.“It was harder for me that I anticipated because you’re used to weights (and) meetings. Every second of the day is planned out,” Pollak said. “I definitely took a more regimented approach to (drop weight). I was getting up early before my kids to go to the gym and maintain some of that (NFL) lifestyle. I’ve since, in the past 18 months, adjusted that to become a more normal lifestyle.”Having a plan to adjust to post-career life appears to be crucial to success for many players. Peters opened a mixed martial arts gym and got involved in jiu-jitsu and boxing. Pollak’s younger sister is a registered dietician who has worked with football players before. She helped him develop a strategy. When Westerman retires, he wants to get to 240 or 250 pounds and be “slimmer and more cut up” through bodybuilding or martial arts. Peters maxed out at 325 pounds during his playing days. Today, he hovers around 270 pounds. Ruegamer now weighs about 275.“These offensive and defensive linemen typically have body-mass indexes that exceed 30,” said Dr. David Geier, a board member of the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine. “Essentially, many of them are what we consider obese, which is bad for your overall health for a lot of medical reasons.”It’s easy to look at a weight of 270 pounds and think, “These players haven’t really lost many pounds.” But many forget, these are massive, big-boned humans. The 50th percentile (average) height and weight of an offensive tackle is 6-foot-5, 314 pounds, according to data from The Scouting Academy. The average height for an American male, according to the Centers for Disease Control, is 5-foot-9. The average weight is 195.5 pounds.“My body structure, I don’t know if I can ever be below 245 and not look ill,” said Mike Pollak, who was drafted out of ASU in 2008 and had a six-year NFL career at center and guard. “Where I’m currently at I feel like I’m in a good place moving forward.”Pollak maxed at 310 pounds when playing, and he, too, is about 270 now. Top Stories Ruegamer said his NFL diet was “pretty much beer and pizza. … Working out a ton and eating a ton. Nutrition wasn’t really well understood or implemented.”There are many stories about team dinners where players order multiple steaks or rookies get stuck with expensive bills – largely due to alcohol – but NFL players eat like this regularly, just to maintain their playing weight. “As you’re playing, you’re eating a tremendous amount of food,” Peters said. “I can’t even imagine. I’d be a blimp today if I ate even close to what I ate when I played.“Your expenditure of calories is so high. You’re doing a ton of work, you’re lifting weights and you’re training like a professional athlete, but kind of part professional football player, part sumo wrestler.” Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling PHOENIX – Grey Ruegamer described himself as a “tall, skinny fat kid” his freshman year at Arizona State University. At 6-foot-4, the center weighed 245 pounds. But by the end of his senior season, the scale read close to 290. On NFL Draft day in 1999, however, Ruegamer learned those extra 45 pounds wouldn’t be enough. Miami Dolphins coach Jimmie Johnson made it clear what he wanted from his big men: “He asked me straight up on the phone during draft day,” said Ruegamer, who retired in 2009 after 10 years in the NFL. “He said, ‘Grey, do you think you can get to 320?’ I said, ‘Absolutely.’ ” This is the chief reason that NFL players, linemen in particular, have gotten considerably larger over the decades. Generating force comes in two parts: acceleration and mass (essentially weight). An increase in weight allows the player to produce more force. The Washington Redskins’ fabled “Hogs” offensive line from 1982 weighed an average of 280.2 pounds. Last season, the average Washington lineman weighed 321.4 pounds. It’s a trend that’s held true across the league for the past four decades.The average weight of Arizona Cardinals offensive lineman starters has risen dramatically over the years, from 261.2 pounds in 1980 to 313.6 pounds in 2017 (according to data compiled from pro-football-reference.com).Although playing at this weight is necessary for many linemen, it’s not the healthiest lifestyle. Many of these players retire with the paramount goal of shedding some of that “offensive line weight.”“I don’t have to push around 300-pound defensive linemen anymore, and no one’s looking at my weight. So let me just do the right thing here and cut that back,” said Scott Peters, who played at Arizona State and in the NFL, including for the Cardinals, for eight years. “That was the number one thing I wanted to do when I retired from football, was just lose some weight.”center_img It’s an adage as old as football: The game is won or lost in the trenches. Even in the modern age of spread offenses and skyrocketing passing numbers, the ability to push an opponent off the ball always will be a huge benefit.However, this creates a fundamental problem. While the NFL wants players capable of winning in the trenches, it can cause players to live relatively unhealthy lifestyles, ballooning to sizes far above their body’s natural weight just to be able to win a one-on-one battle against the man lined up opposite of him. And it presents a challenge for many after football. Some follow strict diet and fitness plans to reach a healthy weight. Former Arizona Cardinals guard Alan Faneca, who weighed 320 pounds when he played, ran a marathon less than three years after retirement. But others battle lifelong health issues, including longtime Chicago Bears defensive lineman William Perry, who weighs more than 400 pounds, is battling diabetes and is confined to a wheelchair.Aside from sound footwork, quick hands, and leverage, the game in the trenches often comes down to a simple physics game – my force against yours. If a guard can generate more force than the man he is blocking, he’s going to win that battle and push the defender back. 7 Comments   Share   Some players quickly cut significant pounds after retiring. Faneca, a 13-year offensive lineman in the NFL, made headlines in 2014 by running his first marathon. Faneca dropped 70 pounds in his first three months after retirement and weighed 210 when he ran the marathon. Faneca, who played collegiately at Louisiana State, might be the rare player making headlines for shedding pounds, but he’s far from the only former player bent on trying.“When I finished,”  Peters said, “I was just thinking, ‘Man I need to lose some weight. It’s not necessary to be this big.’ I know a lot of former players who are out and about, and the guys that seem to do really well are the guys that lose weight.”A 1994 study by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found that former NFL offensive and defensive linemen experience a 52 percent increased risk of dying from heart conditions compared with the general public. Some researchers disputed the findings, however. A 2009 study in “The Journal of the American Medical Association” found that “the NFL population, characterized by large size and intense physical activity, had a (cardiovascular disease) risk profile that was similar to the general population.” “The game will take something away from you,” Ruegamer said. “It always will. It’s not like you can expect to walk into football and expect to be 100-percent purely healthy coming out the other end, that’s just not what it is. “That being said, I would do it again. I would have no reservations about going back into it.” Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Left: Arizona Cardinals offensive lineman Alan Faneca weighed as much as 315 pounds when he played for the team. (Photo by Gene Lower/Getty Images)Right: Three years after retiring from the NFL Faneca dropped more than 100 pounds and finished a marathon in less than four hours. (Photo courtesy Liane Faneca) In 2014, a study in “The American Journal of Cardiology” found that “risk factors for cardiovascular mortality, including hypertension, sleep-disordered breathing and metabolic syndrome, are more prevalent in linemen than in non-linemen.”But extreme weight poses health threats beyond the cardiovascular system. Geier, with the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine, noted the risks to hips, knees and ankles. This often leads to arthritis symptoms, often emerging mid-career.“Typically, they want you as an O-lineman to be over 300 pounds, at least over 300 pounds,” said Christian Westerman, a former ASU guard who is entering his third NFL season with the Cincinnati Bengals. “Each guy is different; it’s kind of based on your body size. Let’s say a guy is 6-foot-8, he has a little more room to be, like, 325.”For a lot of players, maintaining that much weight is a significant challenge. The NFL life is taxing on your body. Morning workouts in the sun, followed by intense weight training, burns well more than 1,000 calories a day during the season. To gain weight, players have to eat more than they’re burning and metabolizing.“It’s not easy. Because of the workload and stuff, it’s not easy to gain weight,” Westerman said. Scott Peters weighing 310 during his playing days (left) compared to recently weighing 265 (right). (Photos courtesy of Scott Peters)Many teams hold regular, player-organized dinners for their offensive lines, with the bill going to each member on a rotating basis. Peters says these dinners include numerous appetizers for the table, and players order multiple entrees for themselves.last_img read more
