TORONTO — The former head of a public health unit is looking to Canada’s top court to keep secret the embarrassing details of her personal relationship with a convicted fraudster the agency hired as its chief financial officer.In urging the Supreme Court of Canada to weigh in, Dr. Kim Barker warns public interest considerations will unfairly trample personal privacy concerns if court-ordered disclosure of the sensitive information is allowed to stand.“The ‘public interest override’ provision found in access to information or privacy legislation across the country is an exceptional measure,” Barker argues in her leave application. “(It is) to be applied only when it has been established that the public interest in disclosure is ‘clearly’ greater than preventing an unjustified invasion of personal privacy.”The case arose in 2013, when Algoma Public Health based in Sault Ste. Marie, Ont., hired Shaun Rothberg as its interim CFO for six months ending in May 2014. His hiring came after his predecessor left amid criminal charges of breach of trust and theft.Rothberg, however, turned out to be Shaun Rootenberg, of Thornhill, Ont., who had a criminal record for multiple counts of fraud. The revelation, by media outlet SooToday, prompted Barker to resign in early 2015, sparking questions about her role in his hiring and whether their personal relationship had put her in an undisclosed conflict of interest.The health unit has long wanted to release the resulting forensic report under the Municipal Freedom of Information and Protection of Privacy Act to “inform the citizenry about the activities of the institution during a time when its integrity was in question.” The province’s privacy commissioner agreed a “compelling public interest in the disclosure” outweighed Barker’s privacy concerns.Barker, who says she is legally blind as a result of contracting malaria in Tanzania in 2003, maintains releasing the KPMG report will make her a double victim.“What I object to is my revictimization by releasing information in the report about how Mr. Rootenberg exploited my disability to manipulate me,” Barker, of Toronto, told The Canadian Press in an email. “It is personally hurtful to have to admit that my visual disability allowed me to become the victim of a professional con man.”In April, the Ontario Court of Appeal acknowledged the significant personal distress releasing the audit would cause Barker but, unlike Divisional Court, ruled the public interest in how Algoma Public Health hired Rootenberg outweighed her privacy interests. The doctor was a senior public official accountable to the community, the health unit board as well as the Ministry of Health, the appellate court said.The Appeal Court, in line with the wishes of the health unit and the privacy commissioner ruling, ordered full release of the KPMG audit.In her Supreme Court filing, Barker says the Court of Appeal decision would upset the balancing exercise contained in information and privacy legislation across the country, potentially resulting in unjust intrusions on personal privacy in the name of transparency.Barker, who is in her late 40s, said she has never objected to making public part of the March 2015 report that focuses on the financial aspects of Rootenberg’s stint as the health unit’s chief financial officer. The audit found no misappropriation of money under her watch, she said.In 2017, Toronto police accused Rootenberg of using dating sites to lure victims into an intimate relationship before defrauding them.The privacy commissioner’s office said it would oppose Barker’s application for leave to the Supreme Court.Colin Perkel, The Canadian Press
3 August 2007United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon held talks with senior officials in Barbados today on regional hotspots and environmental concerns, a spokesperson for the world body announced. In addition to meeting Acting Prime Minister Mia Mottley, Mr. Ban held talks with Foreign Minister Billie Antoinette Miller on the “climate change, Haiti, and the issue of drugs and crime in the Caribbean,” spokesperson Farhan Haq told reporters in New York. Mr. Ban’s visit to Barbados follows a two-day trip to Haiti, where on Thursday he told reporters that he was encouraged by progress on a number of fronts thanks to the efforts of the UN Stabilization Mission (MINUSTAH) and other UN agencies. At the same time, he stressed that Haiti’s development depends on its ability to confront corruption and impunity and to firmly establish the rule of law. Pointing out that the independence of the judiciary is critical to this process, he called on members of Parliament to adopt draft bills to boost the rule of law, Mr. Haq said. Mr. Ban also pledged to ensure that the UN does not disengage too early from Haiti, where previous peacekeeping missions have been withdrawn only to be replaced by successor forces after fragile gains were lost to renewed violence.
The Security Council voted unanimously today to hold a two-day meeting next month in Kenya – only the eleventh time in its history that it will have met away from United Nations Headquarters in New York – to discuss the civil conflicts engulfing Sudan.In a resolution adopted this morning, Council members agreed to meet on 18 and 19 November in the capital Nairobi, where peace talks have been taking place to try to resolve the long-running civil war in southern Sudan.The Council meeting will also discuss the conflict in western Sudan’s Darfur region, where more than 1.65 million have been displaced from their homes and tens of thousands of villagers have been killed or died from hunger or disease. The resolution authorized the Council to discuss the issues with representatives from the African Union (AU), which has a ceasefire monitoring mission in Darfur, and the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD), which has supervised the peace talks for southern Sudan. Earlier this month, Ambassador Emyr Jones Parry of the United Kingdom, which holds the Council’s rotating presidency for October, told reporters that the visit to Nairobi had been organized to underline the international community’s support for a resolution to the two conflicts. This will be the Council’s first formal meeting in Nairobi. It has also convened in London, Paris (twice), Geneva, Addis Ababa, Ethiopia; and Panama City, Panama; as well as several venues in New York State other than at UN Headquarters.
Speculation has been growing as to when Rockstar will get around to announcing the release date for Grand Theft Auto V. And while we don’t have a specific release date yet, we do now have a confirmed release window.Rockstar has announced via its Newswire that GTA V is set to launch in Spring 2013, which means we’ll see it hit store shelves at some point between March and May next year.Details about the game remain thin, but Rockstar has now confirmed it will be set in Southern California and the city of Los Santos. The developer is also promising the largest game world they have ever created, which is some claim considering previous games in the series haven’t exactly been small.As with GTA IV, if you’re a PC gamer you are going to be left waiting, probably many months. Rockstar is initially releasing the game only on the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3. There’s also no mention of the Wii U, but maybe that will come later, too? Nintendo’s hardware should certainly be up to the task, but I doubt the game would make good use of the tablet controller unless Rockstar tweaked it.We won’t have to wait too long to find out an official release date as Rockstar is set to open pre-orders from November 5. It would be unusual not to see a release date listed next to a pre-order, so hopefully we’ll find out next week, and hopefully it’s in March. Rockstar has also promised November is the month when a lot more detail about the game will be revealed.Read more at Rockstar
Carss Park is located in the southern Sydney suburb of Kogarah. When the park supervisor left his job, the home where he used to live, within the park, was abandoned. At first, the local municipality had ordered the demolition of the building.However, federal Greek Australian MP and then mayor, Nickolas Varvaris, fought to turn the building into an artist residence.His proposal won the votes of all Greek Australian councillors, thus giving life to the Artist in Residence project. Varvaris suggested that the building should be preserved and renovated in order for artists to be able to live in the cottage for short periods of time and create their work.Therefore, today the initiative draws a wide range of artists working across different art forms to Kogarah and introduces new experiences and opportunities to the community.At the moment, Greek sculptor Takis Kozokos is living in the cottage as an artist in residence, working on a sculpture entitled The Book of St George of Kogarah and several commissions for the Lemnian Association of NSW.Takis Kozokos was born in Athens. He studied at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Tinos and then resumed his studies at the Athens Higher Faculty of Fine Arts.He worked as a sculptor-restorer on the Acropolis restoration project between 1990 and 1997, while later he also worked as a sculptor in the Acropolis Museum.

‘Riverdale’ Season 4 Trailer Toasts to a Mysterious Senior YearSDCC 2019: ‘Riverdale’ Cast Spills Details on Core ‘Mystery’ for Season 4 Riverdale hardly ever plays it safe, always willing to do the absolute most at all possible times. Last night’s episode was a big risk even for this show, though. I love it when Riverdale decides to remind us that it’s not just another teen soap opera. It’s not afraid to get weird and artsy with the genre, or to tell outlandish stories that somehow perfectly fit the strange reality it’s created. This week, it put most of the season’s major storylines on pause to give us some much-needed backstory. This being Riverdale, that backstory had to have a gimmick. Fortunately, it was a really cool gimmick that paid off in pretty much every way.We do get a bit of initial present day framing to start out. All it takes is a Player’s Manual show up in everyone’s locker and suddenly the whole school is obsessed with this tabletop role-playing game. Again, if I had known it was that easy, my high school D&D group would have been much larger. The parents, who clearly know something about the game, immediately move to ban it, which just makes the game more desirable. Something you’d think they’d know about because, as we discover in this episode, the parents were all in high school in 1992. You know, when there was no better way to guarantee millions of illicit album purchases than to put that little “Parental Advisory” sticker on them. They should have some experience with how teens react when they’re told they can’t have something, in other words. Before we can get too far into the banning story, Betty gets a call from the coroner. He has proof that, contrary to her mother’s assertions at the Farm meeting, she did play Griffins and Gargoyles when she was in high school. Alice agrees to tell Betty the whole story, and that’s where the episode really begins.Lili Reinhart as Teen Alice Smith, Madelaine Petsch as Teen Penelope Blossom, Ashleigh Murray as Teen Sierra Samuels, Camila Mendes as Teen Hermione Gomez, KJ Apa as Teen Fred Andrews and Cole Sprouse as Teen FP Jones (Photo Credit: Dean Buscher/The CW)Having the main actors play their parents is a total stunt. It grabs headlines and ensures we’ll all be watching as the episode airs, eager to see just how they pull it off. The miraculous thing is… it works. It’s so much fun watching these actors we’ve followed for two seasons play completely different characters. Even without looking exactly like the people who play they’re parents did in 1992, they completely embody the characters. KJ Apa is made to look the most like young Luke Perry, but he has the mannerisms down perfectly. You can see a clear path from the teenager we see in this episode to the dad we already knew. The same goes for Cole Sprouse, who’s doing a fantastic impression of a young Skeet Ulrich. Camila Mendes and Madelaine Petsch are the toughest to compare, as they were both completely different people as teenagers. The episode’s story ends up serving them best, as it chronicles how these chilling events turned them into the people they became. Ashleigh Murray and Casey Cott have the least to do once again. That it’s so hard to compare performances shows how little either Josie or Kevin have had to do lately. They’re great characters, and it remains frustrating the show doesn’t give them more air time. All we really get here is the novelty of seeing Cott kiss a girl on this show. It’s kinda funny.Lili Reinhart is the standout performance of the episode. She doesn’t look a ton like Madchen Amick, but it’s all in her body. As the episode cuts back and forth between present and past, it really lets us see the changes Reinhart makes to her performance to play a young Alice Cooper. She carries herself differently. She doesn’t slouch as much when playing Alice, presenting a more confident front. Even, as we learn at the top, that a front is all it is. She just found out that FP Jones got her pregnant, and she spends the entire episode keeping it a secret from almost everyone. Right when she founds out, Penelope Blossom starts getting on her about hall passes. She always had to be in control. A fight ensues and the two girls, along with Sierra Samuels (future Mayor McCoy) and Hermione who were also presnet, end up in detention. Fred Andrews and FP get put there for streaking through the hallways, and that’s how we set up our Breakfast Club scenario.Ashleigh Murray as Teen Sierra Samuels and Casey Cott as Teen Tom Keller (Photo Credit: Dean Buscher/The CW)Riverdale is filled with strange anachronisms in general, and this episode takes it to another level. It explicitly takes place in 1992. The title card gets a Saved By the Bell treatment. Alice’s narration mentions “Smells Like Teen Spirit.” But it’s all structured around a very well-known movie from 1985. And all the music played throughout the episode is from the ’80s. There’s not a lick of grunge to be heard. Even the musical performance is a cover of Dokken’s “Dream Warriors,” which was written for the third Nightmare on Elm Street movie… which came out in 1987. The anachronisms combine with the casting of the main actors as their parents to lend the story an uncertain dream-like quality. The tale is outlandish already, and there are just enough elements that don’t line up to make us, along with Betty, question how much of this actually happened.Over the course of their detentions together, the group becomes unlikely friends. Eventually, they break open the drawer of confiscated materials and find the game that starts all the trouble. With nothing else to do, the quickly become obsessed, getting together to play even after they’ve all served their sentences. (Also, I appreciate that it’s specifically Griffins and Gargoyles 2nd edition they’re playing. Everything went downhill after they got rid of THAC0.) Soon though, the board isn’t enough. Like many nerds before them, tabletop is only a gateway. They soon move onto the harder stuff: LARPing. They routinely break into the school dressed in full costume and play the game in the halls.They even meet another group of similarly-minded nerds, including Hiram Lodge and Daryl Doiley. They found the G&G rulebook in the library’s restricted section. Because if Hogwarts has one, why can’t Riverdale High?KJ Apa as Teen Fred Andrews, Camila Mendes as Teen Hermione Gomez, Cole Sprouse as Teen FP Jones, Madelaine Petsch as Teen Penelope Blossom and Lili Reinhart as Teen Alice Smith (Phot Credit: Dean Buscher/The CW)Also drugs are involved because it wouldn’t be Riverdale without some fantastical illicit substance. This time, instead of Jingle Jangle, it’s Fizzle Rocks, which they pour into drinks and take during the game. Is there a drug on this show that isn’t explicitly based on candy? Not only does that explain the origin of the blue lips, it’s also hilarious that the possibly deadly drug is essentially mixing soda and pop rocks. (That’ll kill you, you know. My cousin swears he saw a dude’s head explode.) As the game goes on, things get way out of hand. A late night party/game night at the school turns creepy and surreal as Alice witnesses what might be the first appearance of the Gargoyle king. Before she can react, she notices Principal Featherhead (a brilliant cameo by Anthony Michael Hall) searching the school. She escapes detection, but he mysteriously doesn’t show up to school the next day. Or the next week. Eventually, his body is found inside a closet at the school, his lips still blue. Not knowing what happened to him, the gang decides to destroy or hide all evidence of the game. They don’t know who orchestrated killing, but they don’t want it traced back to them.As far as the mystery goes, this episode of Riverdale was fairly light on answers. That’s OK though. It did tell us that neither Penelope nor Daryl, the two GMs, orchestrated the event. They both just assumed the other had done it. Someone set the whole thing up to kill one of them, and ended up killing the principal instead. All evidence points to it being one of the players. Once again, the parents of Riverdale are the primary suspects. It’s a recurring theme on this show that the parents are the worst humans in existence. It’s almost become a joke how bad they are at raising children. That’s why this episode was so necessary. It humanized them a bit. It doesn’t make their current actions OK, but it lets us know how they got there.Madelaine Petsch as Teen Penelope Blossom and Anthony Michael Hall as Principal Featherhead (Photo Credit: Katie Yu/The CW)We see why Fred gave up on both sports and music to run the family business, why Hermione abandoned her devout Catholic upbringing to become Hiram’s partner in crime, and why Alice ditched FP to sucker Hal Cooper into believing the kid was his. It’s all a result of this shared traumatic experience. Most of all, we see how Penelope became the cold person she is, willing to do anything, including prostitution, to remain in control. After having it completely undermined in the game with tragic consequences, it’s almost natural she would try to dictate everything in her life, even willingly giving up her own freedom in exchange for power as a Blossom. Again, this doesn’t let any of these parents off the hook for how they’ve treated their kids. It just makes them slightly less of cartoon villains.This episode of Riverdale was phenomenal. As a one-shot, you really couldn’t ask for more. We got a fascinating story, a fun gimmick and some of the best acting we’ve seen from the show. It might just be the best Riverdale’s ever done. I’m even excited to get back to the present, as it left us on one hell of a cliffhanger. After Betty checks her mom’s story and finds evidence that it’s all true, she runs to tell Jughead. Frighteningly, he’s gotten way into the game and is now obsessed with meeting the Gargoyle King. Cole Sprouse can really turn on the creepy eyes when he wants to.Riverdale airs Wednesdays at 8 p.m. on The CW.Previously on Riverdale:Riverdale Season 3, Episode 3 RecapRiverdale Season 3, Episode 2 RecapRiverdale Season 3 Premiere Recap Stay on target

The yew, that dark, twisted, enigmatic tree of legend, looms over churchyards across Europe. Yew trees are a common sight, especially in the United Kingdom, yet few people realize just how old many of these great beings really are. Thought to be the oldest tree in Europe, the yew that stands in the churchyard of St. Cynog’s in Powys, Wales, may be over 5,000 years old. According to the Woodland Trust, it’s in good company – there are over 250 yew trees in the United Kingdom that are classified as “ancient”, meaning that they have been growing for over 900 years.An ancient Yew tree next to a churchyard in an English villageYew trees are notoriously difficult to date accurately, and so in 2014 the yew at St. Cynog’s was subjected to a number of different tests, including DNA analysis and ring counting. Janis Fry, an expert in tree aging, is confident that the tree is the oldest non-clonal tree in Europe, according to The Express. The tests, conducted by the Forestry Institute, concluded that the tree had a ring count of 120 per inch, which would make it around 5,000 years old.St Cynog, Defynnog. © Philip Pankhurst cc-by-sa/2.0The oldest non-clonal tree in the world, according to official records, is a bristlecone pine in southern California, which has been accurately dated to 5,068 years old. However, it is very difficult to precisely date yew trees, and there are a number of candidates, including the St. Cynog Yew, that may rival even this ancient being.Until 2014, it was thought that the oldest tree in Europe was the Fortingall Yew, in Perthshire, Scotland, which has been roughly dated to between 3,000 and 5,000 years of age. However, according to The Woodland Trust, the St. Cynog Yew may be even older.One trunk of the Fortingall yew. Photo by Mogens Engelund CC BY-SA 3.0Part of the difficulty in dating yew trees is due to the fact that, with age, the central trunk often splits into two or several main stems, thus preventing accurate dating using the heartwood rings.This is the case with both the St. Cynog Yew and the Fortingall Yew, which both have fractured trunks. Nevertheless, the trees are otherwise in excellent health and could live for centuries to come.In addition to their broken, decayed appearance, ancient yew trees in the United Kingdom bear the marks of history. According to The Woodland Trust, a cannonball was found inside the trunk of the Crowhurst Yew in Surrey, England, which is thought to have become lodged there at the time of the English Civil War (1642–1651).The split trunk section of the Llangernyw Yew. Photo by Emgaol CC BY-SA 3.0Indeed, if the dating of the St. Cynog Yew is correct, it would have been little more than a sapling at the time of the construction of Stonehenge, and already centuries old when the Great Pyramid of Giza was raised up from the desert. By the time the Romans set foot in Britain, it was already thousands of years old.Related Video: 6 World Famous Land Marks Hiding Something From The PublicYew trees are found in churchyards all over the United Kingdom, in part because of their ancient mythological significance. They carry strong associations with death and resurrection, and often feature in Celtic and Greek traditions as symbols of decay and regeneration.Ancient Yew tree in a churchyardThis may be due to their evergreen foliage and exceptionally long lives, in addition to their perceived regenerative powers. Yew trees appear to suffer extreme damage and decay, splitting open at the trunk, yet they continue to thrive.Even before the advent of Christianity, they were planted in spiritually significant locations and used as part of pagan rituals, often involving death and sacrifice. Later, the ancient traditions surrounding yew trees would become merged with Christian practice, and they were incorporated into Lenten and Easter celebrations, symbolizing the death and resurrection of Christ.Yew trees at Kingley Vale in the South Downs National Park in England are some of the oldest yew trees in the world. They are between 500 and 2,000 years old.For similar reasons, they were often planted in churchyards, watching over the dead and ensuring their spiritual resurrection.Read another story from us: 400-yr-old Bonsai Stolen in Japan – Owners Hope the Tree is WateredThe twisted, tortured trunks of these ancient trees now stand watch over churchyards and graveyards all over Europe, and with luck, will continue to do so for many centuries to come.

EF is a main indicator in assessing the global function of the left ventricle. Presently, many readers quantify EF visually or trace endocardial borders that may not be well defined, yielding high variability among results. LVivo EF aims to substantially reduce this variability by generating objective, accurate and fast AI-based EF.The studies were led by Martin Goldman, M.D., Solomon Bienstock, M.D., Rajeev Samtani, M.D., Steve Liao, M.D., Usman Baber, M.D., Arieh Greenbaum, M.D., Lori B. Croft, M.D., and Eric Stern, M.D., from Mount Sinai Hospital, New York.The first study, “Validation of a Novel Artificial Intelligence Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction Quantification Software (LVivo EF by DIA) by Cardiac MRI,”1 tested the accuracy of the LVivo EF tool on 76 patients by retrospectively running it on cardiac four-chamber clips. The LVivo EF results were then compared to those obtained by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) EF as a gold standard. The study indicated a strong correlation between cardiac MRI and LVivo EF (R2=0.89), and it suggests that LVivo EF may be used over a wide range of cardiac function, to evaluate EF in a fast and accurate manner.”This study further validated DiA’s AI-based tool, LVivo EF, against cardiac MRI EF, a recognized gold standard for the assessment of cardiac function. Based on the study’s findings, LVivo EF has the potential to provide accurate and objective quantification of LVEF to support clinicians in the decision-making process, right at the patient’s bedside, saving time and resources. This is specifically important in patients with low EF, where accuracy has clinical and therapeutic implications. Moreover, by providing the endocardial border overlay on the moving images, it also facilitates immediate confirmation of its accuracy by the reader,” said Goldman, associate director of the CV Institute, director of the Fellowship Training Program and director of medical education at the Icahn School of Medicine at Mount Sinai Hospital.The successful validation of LVivo EF as compared to MRI EF, led the team to publish a second study comparing LVivo EF results to physician’s evaluation of EF using transthoracic echocardiography (TTE), with and without contrast agents, entitled “Fully Automated Echocardiographic Artificial Intelligence Software (LVivo EF by DiA) Could Replace Contrast Agents for Improving Accuracy of Left Ventricular Ejection Fraction Quantification.” Results indicated that in non-contrast studies compared to cardiac MRI, LVivo EF was significantly better than physicians’ assessments (R2=0.823 compared to R2=0.622), while for contrast studies, which are often used to improve LVEF analysis, LVivo EF on non-contrast images and physicians’ quantification of contrast-enhanced images were similar (R2=0.913 and R2=0.873).Both studies will be presented by Bienstock at the American Society of Echocardiography (ASE) 30th Annual Scientific Session, June 22-24 in Portland, Ore.For more information: www.dia-analysis.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more Siemens Go.Top CT scanner at SCCT19Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:05Loaded: 15.14%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:05 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Source = e-Travel Blackboard: P.T ACCC says audit is unnecessary as competition won’t change. Unions and an independent senator are requesting the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) audit Qantas before granting final approval on the airline’s joint venture with Emirates.Independent senator Nick Xenophon and some unions believe Qantas may be shifting funds and exaggerating issues the airline is reporting with its international business, ABC news reported.ACCC chairman Rod Sims said an audit was not necessary as the venture will not have a momentous effect on competition.“Had we said, look the competitive detriment is really strong, therefore the only way you could justify this is the fact that Qantas is going to get off these routes and is in dire trouble, then you would have needed to do what Senator Xenophon in particular is talking about,” Mr Sims said.“But we didn’t find that amount of detriment to justify that.”The ACCC’s formal analysis did uncover some small gains for passengers, due to additional connections and better access to rewards programs, but did not envisage much of a change to competition, with many other airlines servicing similar routes to Qantas and Emirates.Qantas and Emirates were granted draft approval by the ACCC for their joint venture in December 2012.
