first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A team of scientists, led by Monash University researcher Dena Lyras,has unlocked the secrets of a disease causing bacterium that kills hospital patients worldwide. Quote quote quote quote quote quote quote quote quote quote quote quote quote quote quote quote quote…Scientists have known for years that the ‘superbug’ Clostridium difficile causes severe diarrhoea in hospital patients taking antiobiotics, according to Lyras. However they could not figure out exactly how it caused illness.“When people go into hospital and are treated with antibiotics, these antibiotics do not only kill the bad bugs but the good bugs as well,” explains Lyras. “When this happens this bug is able to grow in the gut and make toxins that can kill people who are already really sick. We knew that this bacteria produces two toxins, toxin A and B, and our work aimed to identify which toxin was responsible for causing illness.”The bug is found in every hospital in Australia and was estimated in 1992 to cost each hospital $1.25 million per year. It is also believed to have contributed to 8000 deaths in Britain in 2007. Using a host of scientific procedures including DNA manipulation, Lyras and her collegues created mutants of the superbug and went on to identify that it was toxin B produced by the bacterium that caused disease. “The work we did was able to stop bacteria from making either one of the toxins- when we took toxin A away, the bug caused illness but when we took toxin B away, it didn’t, so we realised that it was toxin B that was responsible for the illness.”The discovery was recently published in the prestigious scientific journal, Nature.  Lyras reveals that her new focus now is on developing a treatment for the illness.  “There are currently antibiotics that can be used to treat this bug. The problem with this bug as with many bugs is that they develop resistance to antibiotics, and so they’re very difficult to treat once they’ve developed resistance. We are investigating a number of different ways to combat the bug and are very confident that we will find a prevention and treatment in the next five to ten years.”last_img read more

first_imgLabor has condemned Prime Minister Tony Abbott’s claim that Australia was heading for a “Greek-style economic future” as inflammatory, irresponsible and capable of harming economic confidence.The prime minister should be far more responsible than this constant scaremongering which is having a clear impact on confidence in the community. Mr Abbott pledged he would not fix the federal budget this year at the expense of households but predicted a “broad budget balance” within five years.Prime Minister Abbott says his government’s second budget will be “dull” in terms of spending cuts.“Under the former Labor government we were heading to a Greek-style economic future,” the prime minister said. In 2012, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) showed Greece’s debt was 164 per cent of GDP, while Australia’s was 42 per cent.OECD data also showed that, in 2014, Greece’s unemployment hit 26 per cent of the labour force compared with 6 per cent in Australia.Alan Tudge, parliamentary secretary to the prime minister, says this is the constant argument from those who dismiss Australia’s debt as a problem: debt levels in places such as Greece are well over 100 per cent of gross domestic product while in Australia they are 15 per cent.He says Greece may have higher debt levels than Australia but it didn’t start that way. Rather, it started with low debt but found it impossible to stop its growth (despite repeated warnings) until it was too late. This is the real context for our debate.He says when Greece started to receive warnings about its debt levels back in the ’80s, it didn’t act. By the ’90s it started to cut back on some spending but couldn’t do enough. By the 2000s, it was too late. Australia is not Greece – the Greece of today or even the Greece of 1980. “Nevertheless, the lesson is clear: once a country is on a debt pathway it is difficult to turn it around. And what can start as a smaller debt can quickly become a seismic one,” Mr Tudge said. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

We know we have the squad to do that but our opponents are very strong and it won’t be an easy job. We will do our best to try.”The Portuguese midfielder dismissed their recent 6-0 whitewash over Chelsea, suggesting the result is irrelevant.“To be honest we should forget that match because it won’t happen again.

Nathan Savage, a senior vice-president of Savage Corp., was also scheduled to attend.Parker said the meeting was being organized by Tesoro and that the chamber’s role was simply to extend an invitation to its members.A new study commissioned by the Port of Vancouver has found a very low likelihood of a train derailment on tracks that run alongside a waterfront redevelopment project whose leader says will largely be ruined if an oil-by-rail transfer terminal is built at the port.A port spokeswoman said Friday the study — which focuses on a key 3,000-foot-long segment of the port’s rail corridor that begins just west of Columbia Street — reflects the port’s longstanding commitment to safety in handling a variety of cargo. But it also benefits the “community conversation” about the proposal by Tesoro Corp. and Savage Companies to handle oil at the port, said Theresa Wagner, the port’s communications manager.last_img read more

Prince Harry Needed to get the Queens Special Consent to Marry Meghan

first_imgOne thing that makes a royal wedding so special is that, from beginning to end, they’re embellished with centuries-old traditions. It was no exception in the case of Prince Harry’s wedding with American actress Meghan Markle. For instance, as a royal bride, Ms. Markle was traditionally loaned a tiara by the Queen. The one that adorned Ms. Markle –or as her title now goes, the Duchess of Sussex–originally belonged to Her Majesty’s grandmother, Queen Mary. It was designed in 1932 to incorporate a separable brooch that Mary received as a wedding present on her special day in 1893. The sprigs of myrtle in the bridal bouquet is a tradition that began in 1840. Queen Victoria reportedly included the flower in her own bridal bouquet. When she subsequently received a gift of myrtle from the grandmother of her spouse, Prince Albert, Victoria had it planted at Osborne House on the Isle of Wight, a favorite residence of Queen Victoria and her Prince Consort. A sprig of the same myrtle plant was used for the wedding of Princess Victoria, one of the daughters born to Queen Victoria and Prince Albert, and ever since has been included in the wedding bouquet of all royal brides, including Elizabeth II.Not only did the bride’s outfit follow tradition, so too did the groom’s. Prince Harry, now the Duke of Sussex, wore the frock-coat uniform of his military regiment, the Blues, and Royals, just like any other male in the family on their wedding day.Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex and Meghan, Duchess of Sussex travel in an Ascot Landau carriage (pulled by four Windsor Grey horses) as they begin their procession through Windsor following their wedding at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018, in Windsor, England. (Photo by Max Mumby/Indigo/Getty Images)However, for all of this to take place, it required the consent of the Queen herself, which also takes a special protocol and is a tradition in its own right, one incorporated into British law ever since 1707.Her Majesty’s formal consent for the marriage union between her grandson and Meghan Markle is recorded in a document called the Instrument of Consent. An image of the special document was released by Buckingham Palace a day ahead of the wedding ceremony; it is handwritten on vellum and illuminated with designs that represent the royal bride and groom, and their heritage.Queen Elizabeth II attends the wedding of Prince Harry to Ms. Meghan Markle at St George’s Chapel, Windsor Castle on May 19, 2018, in Windsor, England. (Photo by Pool/Max Mumby/Getty Images)Earlier in 2018, the Queen approved the wedding at a privy council meeting. However, she now needed to abide with the Succession to the Crown Act (a law originally passed in 1707 and amended in 2015). Without the written declaration from the 92-year-old reigning monarch, Prince Harry, who falls sixth in the line of succession to the throne, would have otherwise been stripped of the possibility of ever becoming a reigning monarch himself–and the marriage itself declared “null and void.”8 Words you will NEVER hear the Royal Family sayOn a side note, the Royal Marriages Act 1772 required all descendants of George II (who, interestingly enough, was the last British king to appear on a battlefield) to obtain permission from the current monarch in order to marry. The law was slightly altered in 2013 so that only the first six persons in line to the throne must obtain such permission; Prince Harry was obviously not spared the protocol.The ‘Instrument of Consent’, which is the Queen’s historic formal consent to Prince William’s forthcoming marriage to Kate Middleton, is seen at the Crown Office at the House of Lords, London (Photo by Clive Gee/WPA Pool/Getty Images)The Instrument of Consent was signed “Elizabeth R.” by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, with the letter R denoting Regina, the Latin word for queen. The Great Seal of the Realm can be spotted at the end of the document, part of the document, which uses the official first name, Henry, for Prince Harry, goes as follows:“NOW KNOW YE that We have consented and do by these Presents signify Our Consent to the contracting of Matrimony between Our Most Dearly Beloved Grandson Prince Henry Charles Albert David of Wales, K.C.V.O., and Rachel Meghan Markle.”Meghan Markle in March 2018 Photo By Northen Ireland Office CC By 2.0It has been noted that, unlike Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge, in the Instrument of Consent for her royal wedding to Prince William in 2011, Meghan Markle is not referred to as “our trusty and well-beloved.” However, this is simply another tradition of legal terminology; only citizens of Great Britain or the Queen’s overseas Realms can be called “trusty and well-beloved” and the Duchess of Sussex is not (yet) a British citizen.Noticeable on the document are the designs on the left and the right side of the text. Included on the left is a red dragon, the emblem of Wales; three small escallops in red, taken from the Spencer family’s heraldic arms, Princess Diana of Wales’ family; and the rose, thistle, and shamrock, representing England, Scotland, and Ireland.Queen Elizabeth’s Formal Consent To Royal Wedding (Photo by Clive Gee/WPA Pool/Getty Images)On the opposite side, for Ms. Markle, is a design that depicts a similar rose, the U.S.’s national flower. There are also four poppies colored gold, a reference to Markle’s birthplace of California, and the olive branches seen on the Great Seal of the United States. The historical document includes the Commonwealth emblem, hinting at the royal couple’s pledge to follow suit as ambassadors of all the countries that are part of the Commonwealth of Nations.Markle and Prince Harry attending church on Christmas Day, 2017 Photo by Mark Jones CC-BY 2.0The vellum document, which is an exquisite parchment made from calf’s skin, was drafted by the Crown Office, and as the Buckingham Palace announcement explains, this type of parchment is reserved “only for important State documents.”Related story from us: Princess Diana, modern royal style icon, would not wear Chanel pumps after her divorce for a private reasonHad Harry failed to gain the permission of his grandmother, the royal wedding would have been invalid. Not only himself but any of his children or grandchildren would have also been excluded from ever being considered to wear the Crown. As the line of succession goes, he remains behind his father, Prince Charles; his brother, Prince William; and his nephews and niece, the children of William and his wife.last_img read more

Problems pile up for Greek boatbuilders as taxes bite

first_img Comments   Share   The biggest gainers are foreign-owned boats or vessels used for work like those of fishermen — they are exempted from the tax.For many, it’s a case of finding the money or running up arrears and facing a fine with interest on top. Officials say they don’t have exact figures on how many boat owners would be affected by the tax.And there are doubts the moves will achieve what is hoped for — getting some easy cash back into state coffers.“I don’t believe they will have any income from this because even if someone would like to buy something, he would prefer to go to Italy or to another country to buy it,” said Vernicos.George Riginos, a partner in the family-owned Riginos Yachts located in the well-to-do Athens suburb of Glyfada, said chasing buyers away with higher taxes can only be damaging by putting a whole host of people along the chain out of work — from builders at shipyards to crew members and cleaners.The Greek government’s message of going after the “rich, capitalist yacht owners” just doesn’t ring true, according to Riginos.“It’s a pity,” he said. “Last year was the best year in sales in a long time and now that looks to be reversed.” Sponsored Stories Top Stories In order to get its third financial bailout in five years, Greece’s government has had to introduce a series of economic reforms and austerity measures — just to get discussions started.One involves the extension of an annual luxury tax to all recreational boats over 16.4 feet (5 meters), so it’s not just your average Catamaran that’s a feature across countless harbours in the Aegean Sea.Another has been increasing that tax to 13 percent from 10 percent.The combination, according to Kranitis, could prove to be the final death knell for an industry that’s already seen boat registrations shrink from a high of 11,112 in 2007 to just over 2,500 last year.“We’re being destroyed,” said Kranitis who also heads the Greek Boat Builders’ Association. “I can’t understand what these people in government are thinking.”With a coastline that’s 10,720 miles (17,250 kilometers) in length, which according to the Greek Boat Builders’ Association is equal to two-thirds of Africa’s, Greece is one of the world’s great maritime jewels with its hundreds of islands, picture-perfect bays and seaside tavernas. In any case, Vernicos says the rich will work out a way of avoiding taxes.“When you put taxes, you attack the more poor people, if I can say, rather than the very rich,” he said.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Arizona families, Arizona farms: A legacy of tradition embracing animal care and comfort through modern technology Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Mesa family survives lightning strike to homecenter_img New Valley school lets students pick career-path academies ATHENS, Greece (AP) — At its height eight years ago, George Kranitis’ family-owned shipyard in Patra, Greece’s third-largest city, employed some 35 people and sold around 340 boats annually.But after years of biting recession, Kranitis has had to fire almost everyone at the 10,000 sq. foot (3,050 sq. meters) yard.And if that wasn’t enough, things just got a whole lot more taxing — literally. Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall So the fate of the boating industry resonates far and wide in Greece.“Greece is a yachting paradise, a place where everyone likes to have a small boat,” said Greek Tourism Federation chief George Vernicos who also heads his own yacht business.Anyone thinking of raising some cash to make ends meet by selling a boat will struggle as the sales tax has also been increased by a whopping 10 percentage points to 23 percent — that’s unlikely to encourage buyers.Opting to hold on doesn’t come cheap. The owner of a 33-foot (10 meter) speed boat valued at 16,000 euros ($17,600) would have to pay 2,080 euros annually. For a 33-foot sailboat or yacht valued at 28,500 euros that comes with accommodation space for passengers, the amount jumps to 3,700 euros each year.There are some reliefs.For instance, if a boat is declared to be out of use for certain months of the year, say over winter, the tax is reduced accordingly. The vessel’s age can also be taken into account and so can the owner’s — pensioners get a big discount. There’s also a discount for boats made in Greece exclusively out of wood and fashioned according to traditional methods.

first_img by Victoria Ahearn, The Canadian Press Posted May 30, 2019 1:03 pm PDT Toronto Raptors fans line up to get into the fan area known as “Jurassic Park” outside the Scotiabank Arena ahead of game one of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors, in Toronto on Thursday, May 30, 2019. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Chris Young AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO — While most Toronto Raptors fans are likely hoping for a quick and victorious end to the NBA Finals matchup against Golden State, Bart Yabsley wants it to go on as long as possible.The recently appointed president of Sportsnet has been celebrating record-breaking ratings for the Rogers Media network during the team’s unprecedented playoff run and is hoping for the same as it airs several games of the finals.Sportsnet and Bell Media’s TSN split the Raptors’ broadcast schedule in Canada.For the finals, Sportsnet has the rights to broadcast Games 1, 3, 5 and 7, which would take place in Toronto and no doubt be a ratings boon.“If it gets to Game 7, there will be a party at our shop,” Yabsley said Thursday in an interview before Game 1, which he planned to attend.“I’m happy to say I hope it goes to Game 7. We will be nervous. I’ll probably be more nervous in Game 6: ‘Do we get Game 7 or not?’”Saturday night’s decisive sixth game of the Eastern Conference final, in which the Raptors beat the visiting Milwaukee Bucks, shattered the NBA’s Canadian television audience record.Sportsnet said an average of 3.1 million viewers tuned in for that game — well above the previous record of an average of 2.2 million, set in Game 7 of the second round against the visiting Philadelphia 76ers.Sportsnet’s three games shown during the East final had a series average of 2.1 million viewers, a 77 per cent increase from the Raptors’ other conference final appearance in 2016.“We’re talking quantum leaps here,” Yabsley said.“I think our regular season audience was up 44 per cent over last year.” Such numbers rival those of the last Grey Cup, which netted an audience of around 3.1 million, said Yabsley.“That’s the kind of thing that gets me excited,” he said. “Three million people is a lot of people. We’re in major, major sporting event territory.”The Raptors aren’t just a slam dunk for ratings.On Saturday, Sportsnet set a one-day record for sales for its one-week pass to its Sportsnet Now live streaming service, said Yabsley.The Raptors’ success has also offered Sportsnet a chance to broaden, nationalize and grow its audience, he added.Yabsley hopes there’s also “a carry-over impact” when the season is over, with the creation of new fans who will watch the next regular season for the first time.“It’s a very different crowd than other sports, because of its diversity: ethnic, male, female. It cuts across a broad spectrum of society,” Yabsley said, adding Raptors’ audiences also skew a bit younger.“It’s a very attractive audience for advertisers.”Victoria Ahearn, The Canadian Press Sportsnet hopes NBA Finals reach Game 7 as Raptors prove slam dunk for ratingslast_img read more

monster who pulled the trigger not policymakers in Washington not anger-stokers on cable TV not even the gunmakers who manufactured the instruments that made the carnage possible The killer did the killing period But that killing came in a context and that context is anger Americans have made something of a fetish of our rage of late a fact thats even been leaking into our language The base is never just “animated” it’s always “enraged” Health care debates are never “spirited” theyre always “furious” In the run-up to the 2016 election a CNN/ORC poll found that 69% of Americans reported being either very or somewhat angry at the state of the nation That showed itself in a kind of rage voting on both sides of the political divide Trump Bernie Take that "The way the Internet and cable news work outrage over any event can be mustered easily" says David Pizarro a professor of psychology at Cornell University "We feel those emotions strongly in ways we didnt used to” Michael Kimmel a professor of sociology and gender studies at Stony Brook University in New York refers to this kind of rage as “aggrieved entitlement” the kind of luxury anger a culture can allow itself when its basic needs like food and shelter are met Still ambient anger can become a cultures dry leaves kindling lying everywhere thats utterly harmless but only until it meets an errant spark and a good gust of wind Mental illness may be the spark As for the wind Rage or worse contempt can be more than enough especially in the case of racially or politically motivated killings like Charlottesville or the Charleston church shooting "We are increasingly dividing ourselves into in-groups and out-groups" says Pizarro "Anger and contempt can cause you to see the other group as less than your own even less human" Non-humans of course become easier to kill Worse rage easily becomes a contagion with the emotion passing from one person to the next with the ease of a virus "Social norms play incredibly important roles in shaping our behavior" says Linda Tropp professor of social psychology in the Psychology of Peace and Violence Program at the University of Massachusetts Amherst “We look to others in our social environment to learn whether to respond to events with violent or peaceful actions with hatred or friendliness" Certainly its impossible to blame any one mass killing including the Las Vegas slaughter on any one set of social variables Still in the same way no single heat wave can be ascribed to climate change but years of record-breaking temperatures point to a planet running a fever so too does our increasing gun violence suggest a certain national soul-sickness From 1982 to 2011 mass shootings occurred in the US about once every 173 days an already horrific figure Since then such killings have happened more than three times as frequently once every 58 days That rising tide of blood isn’t happening by itself In a less combative political environment reasonable people could agree on reasonable solutions to the gun scourge or at the very least to study and treat the problem like the public health emergency it is But the same spittle-flying fury that has us shouting past one another on cable news and talk radio prevents any rational debate in state legislatures or Congress So the guns an estimated 300 million of which are currently in circulation continue to flow into the communities where they mix with the rage which bumps into mental illness and inevitably something blows “We live in a culture that doesn’t like multi-variate equations” says Kimmel “but there are a lot of variables at play here” Murder of course can never be reduced to math but math does have something to say in all this Change a factor on the left side of an equal sign and you get a
