MUMBAI: India’s rice exports in April-June dived 28.2 per cent from a year ago to 2.35 million tonnes, a government body said on Monday, as demand for non-basmati rice was subdued from African buyers. The country’s non-basmati rice exports plunged 43 per cent during the period to 1.2 million tonnes, the Agricultural and Processed Food Products Export Development Authority (APEDA) said in a statement. India’s rice exports in 2019/20 are likely to fall to their lowest level in seven years, industry officials said last month, as weak demand from African countries weighs and shippers absorb the absence of government incentives that supported previous sales. New Delhi is the world’s biggest exporter of rice, buffalo meat and guar gum. The country’s buffalo meat exports during the period eased to 275,398 tonnes from 276,450 tonnes a year ago, it said. India’s guar gum exports dropped 5.5 per cent to 127,700 tonnes on lower demand from the United States, while pulses exports more than halved to 45,344 tonnes, the APEDA said.
New Delhi: The Reserve Bank of India (RBI) is likely to cut interest rates one more time in June before rising inflation pressures and elevated fiscal deficits leave little room for further accommodation in rest of the year, IHS Markit said Wednesday. RBI had cut interest rate by 25 basis points each in February and April to boost economic growth. In a report on the forecast for global monetary policy actions and resulting economic impact, the London-based global information provider said RBI is likely to tighten its monetary policy stance in early-to-mid 2020.

WASHINGTON, D.C.“For the people who asked me about what is happening in Palestine right now: I thought of finding the strongest words to describe how it feels to have your people being murdered and punished by an occupation that has been continuously committing crimes against civilians. But I found that words will never make people know how I feel when I call my family members who live in Gaza and they tell me they can’t sleep at night because they don’t know if they are going to wake up alive the next morning.” –Muath Ibaid, Facebook status.For Ahmad Saleh, a young man who lives in northern Gaza, there is nowhere to run. “Where do I feel safe? I don’t know how to answer that…all I have is my house, and even that is not safe. There is nothing else,” he said in a Skype interview.Part of his house has been damaged. He constantly hears bombs, some landing as close as 100 meters from his home.Since the start of the offensive, more than 500 Palestinians—mostly civilians—have been killed and more than 3,000 injured, according to Gaza health officials. Twenty Israelis, including two civilians have died. The UN agency for Palestinian refugees UNRWA has opened 61 of its schools for more than 80,000 people.Sunday, Gaza endured its deadliest day, with the death of at least 120 Palestinians as Israel continued to escalate its military onslaught.“The corpses of women and children were strewn in streets of Shujai’iya as people fled on foot and packed into vehicles,” according to The Guardian.Protests around the world call for Israel to end this massacre, yet Israel continues to expand its offensive, blaming Hamas for using civilians as human shields. However, reports indicate that more children have been killed than Hamas militants.Tyler Hicks, a New York Times photographer who captured the aftermath of an Israeli missile targeting four children on the beach wrote, “A small metal shack with no electricity or running water on a jetty in the blazing seaside sun does not seem like the kind of place frequented by Hamas militants, the Israeli Defense Forces’ intended targets. Children, maybe four feet tall, dressed in summer clothes, running from an explosion, don’t fit the description of Hamas fighters, either.”The United States remains supportive of Israel’s “right to defend itself,” as both President Barack Obama and Secretary of State John Kerry have said repeatedly.“The world thinks that we are terrorists, but we are not. We are humans like everyone else, but we are lacking our human rights. Gaza is striving to survive. This is not a war, this is genocide,” said Christina Yousef, a young woman living in the West Bank.She said the life Palestinians live is one of constant fear and terror. “We try to live our lives normally, but we know that settlers can come and abduct or kill us any time.”Since the 2007 siege on Gaza, they virtually have no way of leaving what many now call an “open-air prison.” Or as Noam Sheizaf writes in +972, the West Bank is like similar to a minimum-security facility, while Gaza is a maximum-security facility.“The world must care not only because what is going on right now, but because of the daily life of Palestinians, especially in Gaza. We are the only people in the 21st century who are under military occupation with no control in any aspect of our lives. The world must care because their foreign policies and the Western double standards hurt the Palestinians,” said Zain Jarrar, a resident of Ramallah.As of now, there seems to be no end to the fighting, although attempts to reach a cease-fire continue.As Saleh writes in a Facebook status, “The smell of death is in every corner of Gaza.”
TORONTO — Hudson’s Bay Co. lost $243 million in its latest quarter as overall revenue and comparable-store sales fell compared with a year ago.The retailer said Wednesday the loss amounted to $1.33 per diluted share for the 13 weeks ended Oct. 28 compared with a loss of $125 million or 69 cents per diluted share a year ago.Retail sales totalled $3.16 billion, down four per cent from $3.30 billion in the same quarter last year.Consolidated comparable sales fell 3.2 per cent on a constant currency basis and 5.1 per cent as reported. Ed Record, HBC’s chief financial officer, its Saks Fifth Avenue and Hudson’s Bay businesses performed well but overall third-quarter results did not meet expectations.HBC shares fell 13.28 per cent to $10.32 at 9:45 a.m. in Toronto.Hudson’s Bay seeks more time to produce documents in pricing probeHudson’s Bay Co. reaches agreement with activist investor Land & BuildingsHBC’s other banners include Lord and Taylor, Gilt, Saks Off 5th, German department store group Galeria Kaufhof and Galeria Inno, a department store chain in Belgium.Record said job cuts — made as part of HBC’s transformation plan — caused some operational challenges, particularly in its digital business.“We know we can do better, and our highest priorities include increasing comparable sales, improving margins, and prioritizing our capital investments as we focus on further developing our digital business,” Record said in a statement.“Our emphasis on digital continues to grow, and we are re-allocating resources to improve HBC’s digital platforms and online capabilities. We also plan on reducing total inventory as part of an effort to moderate promotional activity and increase full price selling.”Last week, an activist investor agreed to drop its opposition to an investment in HBC by private equity firm Rhone Capital, which has agreed to invest roughly $632-million in HBC in the form of mandatory convertible preferred shares.Land & Buildings Investment Management LLC had criticized the Rhone deal and applied last month for Ontario Securities Commission to review a Toronto Stock Exchange conditional approval of the investment.Land & Buildings agreed last week it was “pleased and encouraged” that HBC’s management and board indicated they would continue to take steps to monetize the company’s real estate assets.The Rhone investment was announced as part of a deal that will see HBC to sell its Lord & Taylor Fifth Avenue building to WeWork Property Advisors, a joint venture between WeWork and Rhone, for nearly $1.1 billion, and pursue a strategic alliance with WeWork regarding future real estate transactions.
“The situation could get worse if we don’t tackle the garbage problem quickly,” Health Minister Rajitha Senaratne told AFP as official figures showed 210 people had died from dengue so far this year — well over double the figure for the whole of 2016. “It is not something my ministry can do alone but we need a collective effort.”The number of infected people in the first six months of this year was nearly 70,000 compared to about 55,000 cases for the whole of last year, official figures showed. Sri Lanka has suffered a record 200 deaths from dengue fever this year, the health minister said Monday, blaming a garbage disposal crisis in Colombo, the AFP news agency reported.Rotting garbage has been piling up in many parts of the capital since the country’s main rubbish tip collapsed in April, crushing dozens of homes and killing 32 people. With nowhere to take the trash, municipal collection has drastically slowed and led to huge piles on the streets which authorities say are encouraging mosquito-breeding. Military spokesman Roshan Seneviratne said troops had been deployed to help tackle the crisis, while police said they had prosecuted 454 people for illegally dumping garbage.Stagnant water left behind after last month’s flooding was also seen as contributing to the spread of dengue, a tropical disease spread by mosquitoes.
Share557 Tweet Email3 Poorer households turning to pre-pay heating – but that means they pay a ‘poverty premium’ A new Mabs report covered the west Dublin areas of Ballyfermot, Chapelizod, Palmerstown and Cherry Orchard. 98 Comments Friday 16 Feb 2018, 8:36 AM By Sean Murray Image: Shutterstock/Yevhen Prozhyrko 32,505 Views http://jrnl.ie/3855111 Feb 16th 2018, 8:36 AM A NEW REPORT from the Money Advice and Budgeting Service (Mabs) has found that over half of its clients in the west Dublin areas of Ballyfermot, Cherry Orchard, Chapelizod and Palmerstown went without heating in the last 12 months.The report – Left Behind in the Cold – highlights what it refers to as a “poverty premium” where people have moved towards pre-paid fuel meters in their home which, while decreasing arrears from unpaid bills, has left many without the money to heat their home.Furthermore, the administration charges for topping up their meters in shops means that they end up spending far more of their income on fuel than the general population.The report was commissioned to see if – as the economy has improved in recent years – the upturn has had any effect on rates of fuel poverty in people seeking its help, which has been strongly linked with financial difficulty and over-indebtedness.It found that over seven in ten (72%) of clients who came to its service were in fuel poverty – which means they were spending more than 10% of their disposable income on fuel. Short URL Image: Shutterstock/Yevhen Prozhyrko Source: MabsThe 56% of people who’ve gone without heat at some stage over the past 12 months is four times higher than the figure for the general population.It also found that around six in ten of its clients now have pre-payment meters, compared to four in ten in 2013. On top of that, the administration charge of topping up these meters in shops was adding to the cost for these customers.The report admits that due to the limitations of its study – having received information from 100 Mabs clients – no “causal links or pathways” to explain the data could be done, but it nevertheless could identify “possible associations and relationships”.Members of the travelling community surveyed spent 21% of their income on fuel costs.As a result of the reports findings, Mabs made a number of recommendations, including the establishment of a cross agency/departmental task force into fuel poverty.It also recommended the activation of discretionary powers to the local community welfare officer from the Department of Social Protection to make payments to travellers living in caravans or mobile homes presenting with exceptional fuel costs and those living in sub-standard accommodation.Marie Clark, money advice coordinator with the service, said: “There is a clear trend among clients away from the more traditional utility suppliers and towards those who operate pre-payment facilities. There were frequent reports of administration charges for making weekly payments – primarily for meter top-ups – in local shops; such payments may, in our view, amount to a “poverty premium”, the simple fact is that it is not just token meters where a surcharge applies… The service found some shops adding a fee to everything from topping up your waste fee charge to toll fees.Read: ‘There is a solution for everybody’: Debtors urged not to put their heads in the sand in 2018Read: How to survive last-minute shopping without overspending (according to a MABS expert) Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article

Deux séismes frappent Christchurch en Nouvelle Zélande10 mois après un séisme de magnitude 6,3 qui avait fait 181 morts et détruit une grande partie du centre-ville de Christchurch, le sort s’acharne aujourd’hui avec la frappe de deux séismes de magnitude 5,8 sur la même ville.Deux séismes de magnitude 5,8 ont frappé vendredi à une heure d’intervalle la ville de Christchurch, dans le sud de la Nouvelle-Zélande, déjà en partie ravagée le 22 février dernier par un tremblement de terre majeur. À lire aussiUn village de Nouvelle-Zélande veut bannir les chats pour protéger sa fauneCe dernier avait fait des dégâts matériels évalués à près de 11,5 milliards d’euros. Le premier séisme a eu une secousse enregistrée à 13h58 (00h58 GMT) à une profondeur de 4 km. La secousse du second séisme a fait tremblé la ville à 15h18 (02h18 GMT), à une profondeur similaire. Leurs épicentres se trouvaient respectivement à 26 et 16 kilomètres de Christchurch, d’après les informations de l’Institut de géophysique américain (USGS). Des dégâts matériels ont été observés, des bâtiments se sont notamment effondrés, les communications téléphoniques et l’électricité ont été coupées mais aucun bilan matériel ou humain n’a encore été prononcé. Aucun mort n’a été recensé. Seule une personne a été hospitalisée pour l’instant. Le Premier ministre néo zélandais, John Key, a tout de même décrit ce drame comme “effrayant et démoralisant”. Pourtant, les sismologues avaient averti les autorités il y a un mois de l’imminence d’un prochain séisme à Christchurch. Ils évaluaient alors, à 46% le risque d’une secousse d’une magnitude de 5,5 à 5,9 dans les mois à venir. Le 25 décembre 2011 à 10:25 • Maxime Lambert

June 24, 2013 — A new first for Georgia was celebrated Thursday, May 2, as Emory Healthcare and the Winship Cancer Institute broke ground on the new Emory Proton Therapy Center. Brasfield & Gorrie, the general contractor on the more than $200 million dollar oncology center, was joined in the celebration by developer Advanced Particle Therapy and elected officials, including Atlanta Mayor Kasim Reed.In his remarks, Mayor Reed addressed the center’s impact, not only on the lives of patients but also on the city’s economic and research development.Located in downtown Atlanta at the corner of Peachtree Street and North Avenue, the 107,000 square foot center will accommodate approximately 2,200 cancer patients each year. The facility will open its doors to patients in 2016 after an 18-month commissioning period for the Varian Medical Systems equipment.The new proton treatment facility will incorporate several unique features, including the 16-foot-thickspecialized shielding walls necessary to house pencil beam scanning equipment. To date, only one proton therapy center in the nation offers pencil beam scanning capabilities and in only one room. The Emory Proton Therapy Center will feature this advanced capability in all five of its treatment rooms.Under the direction of developer Advanced Particle Therapy, Brasfield & Gorrie is working with Signet Development, Emory Healthcare, VOA Associates and Perkins+Will.“This facility represents a wonderful opportunity to fulfill a health care need for the people of Georgia and surrounding states. We look forward to a successful building process and turning over a treatment center that will improve the lives of many patients,” said Trey Sanders, regional president of Brasfield & Gorrie.For more information: www.brasfieldgorrie.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | August 05, 2019 | Dave Fornell, Editor Most Popular Radiology and Radiotherapy Topics in July 2019 August 5, 2019 — Here is the list of the most popular content on the Imaging Technology New (ITN) magazine website fr read more News | Proton Therapy | August 06, 2019 IBA Signs Contract to Install Proton Therapy Center in Kansas IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.) recently signed a contract and received the first payment for a Proteus One solution… read more Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left).

The quantitative method tracks the transverse shear waves spreading laterally from the breast tissue, calculating the speed of propagation.”The analyst notes that while the technique is non-invasive, its clinical efficacy evaluation is limited by a lack of standardization in terms of compression of the tissue being examined, and in interpreting the elastography data.Midha comments: “More prospective clinical studies are required to compare this technique’s diagnostic performance in different types of breast lesions. Furthermore, inter-instrument variability also needs to be assessed, as different manufacturers have incorporated this functionality into their premium ultrasound systems.”The analyst adds that while mammography’s effectiveness has been the subject of debate among the medical community, a clear unmet need remains for the accurate and early detection of breast cancer, and for more robust screening and diagnostic techniques.“Irrespective of its limitations, shear-wave elastography will play a vital role in the treatment of breast cancer, which sees 1.38 million new cases detected worldwide each year,” Midha concludes.For more information: www.globaldata.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Breast Imaging | August 02, 2019 Volpara to Distribute Screenpoint Medical’s Transpara AI Solution Volpara Solutions and ScreenPoint Medical BV signed an agreement under which Volpara will sell ScreenPoint’s Transpara… read more News | Ultrasound Imaging | July 26, 2019 Intelligent Ultrasound Group Collaborating With the National Imaging Academy Wales Artificial intelligence (AI)-based ultrasound software and simulation company Intelligent Ultrasound Group plc (AIM:… read more News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.
