The Growth of Suburban Homelessness Invisible in Montreal


first_imgShareTweetShareEmail0 SharesMay 24, 2014; Montreal GazetteIn suburban Montreal, an affluent area of “manicured lawns, in-ground swimming pools and two-car garages,” according to Sue Montgomery writing for the Gazette, the hidden homeless remain “invisible to all but the few community organizations struggling to meet the demand of those in need.”According to Lucie Latulippe, in charge of two homeless shelters in Longueuil, “what is new is the size and diversity of homelessness.” Her two shelters house 700 people a year but turn away 1,200. The number of homeless who might be beyond those numbers is difficult to imagine. A study of homelessness from Vancouver in 2009 indicated that for every one known homeless person, there were another 3.5 hidden homeless.Montgomery notes that a little-discussed aspect of the recent Quebec election campaign was a plank of the Parti Québécois calling for an action plan on homelessness, emphasizing “much-needed social housing.” This is striking for U.S. readers in two ways. One is that the U.S. press, to the extent that it shows any awareness of Quebec, is focused on the issue of linguistic nationalism, with no sense that Parti Québécois might have anything else in its platform. The other is the surprise that Canadian parties actually talk about housing and homelessness, a topic missing in political discourse in this country when it comes to Republicans and Democrats.Unfortunately, Parti Québécois lost at the polls to the Liberal Party, which Latulippe and others say doesn’t seem to fully recognize the dimensions of the homelessness challenge. Émilie Rouleau from l’Écluse des Laurentides, a group that has street workers in a number of suburban Montreal communities, said that “there’s a lot of uncertainty and worry” about what the Liberals might do in their plans for an “austerity budget.”However, speaking for the Liberals, Lucie Charlebois, the Liberal minister whose portfolio includes homelessness, said that the Liberal Party will develop an action plan on homelessness before the beginning of winter, noting that the Parti Québécois was not the only party with “heart and passion” on the issue.A number of aspects of homelessness in suburban Montreal might have comparable dynamics here in the U.S.:It seems that a significant portion of suburban homelessness involves young people aged 16 to 24.Many of these homeless youth, according to Carol Paré, director of Travail de Rue de Île de Laval, “have been raised by parents who themselves are in difficulty and can’t feed their kids, let alone teach them how to manage the responsibilities of life.”Much of the homelessness encountered by shelter operators and outreach workers is “situational, caused by a lost job or leaving a spouse…but it can still last a few years,” according to Sandrine Gaudelet, the director of a suburban shelter called l’Aviron.We suspect that homeless youth comprise an underreported dimension of homelessness in the U.S., too. Not just the children of homeless families, but young people who if not in shelters are crashing on friends’ couches or living in precariously insecure housing situations. What’s truly underreported about housing and homelessness in the U.S. are the positions of U.S. political parties on the issue; they can’t be reported because neither major political party says much of anything at all.–Rick CohenShareTweetShareEmail0 Shareslast_img read more


Technology company iWedia is deploying its Linuxb


first_imgTechnology company iWedia is deploying its Linux-based Teatro-3.0 solution for IP-connected set-top boxes on the German HD+ retail market in a 4K set-top designed and manufactured by Kudelski-owned SmarDTV.For HD+, the solution has been ported on a dual-tuner UHD DVB-S/S2 STB from SmarDTV based on the Broadcom BCM7251 system-on-a-chip. The software has been customised to fulfill HD+ specifications and integrated with Nagra Guard Conditional Access System. Its architecture has received Nagra NASC 3.0 Tier #4 certification.The solution features navigation tools including service list, zapping banner, flat and grid TV guides as well as DVR and timeshift over a USB storage device. A picture browser and player is provided. Fast zapping and HbbTV apps are supported.“With its software architecture recognized highly secure by third party experts, Teatro-3.0 is ideally suited for connected Pay TV STB running Linux,” said Sunghoon Kim, VP sales at iWedia. “Moreover, it supports HTML5 for both the resident app and remote web services which allows for visually catchy UI,” he added. “We are very proud that German viewers may now enjoy this solution and we are preparing further deployments”.The announcement was made at TV Connect 2017, which is being held in London from Tuesday, March 28th through to Thursday, March 30th. iWedia is demonstrating the solution on stand B54.Teatro-3.0, a software solution for IP-connected STB, is based on Linux with a UI built in HTML5 which uses specific JavaScript APIs allowing access to digital TV features.Separately, iWedia has integrated its software solution for set-top box operated under Android TV with the home automation system of OBLO Living, a provider of world hardware and software solutions for home automation.The OBLO product portfolio is made of an end-to-end software solution for home automation including client apps for Android/iOS, gateway software and cloud services combined with in-house developed devices such as gateway, smart wall plug, door/window sensor, smart dimmer, smart outlet and complementary nodes from third parties including Qubino, Philio and Leedarson. Applications include home comfort, lightning, security and energy management.Both the OBLO gateway software and Teatro-3.5 embed an “If This Then That” (IFTTT) service. IFTTT is then used as a public cloud service for workflow management. The user defines IFTTT applets to describe the interaction between OBLO and Teatro-3.5. Applications include simple use cases where a message is displayed on the TV screen when for example a door opens.“It is important for an HA solution to include in its ecosystem the main screen in the living room,” said Nikola Smiljkovic, VP Marketing at OBLO Living. “And it is equally important for the user to be able to use public cloud services to define the HA workflow; we had these two objectives in mind when entering into this integration project with iWedia and they have been fully accomplished.”“We see the TV screen as the ideal device to display real-time notifications triggered by a web based workflow management platform like IFTTT,” said Hervé Creff, VP marketing at iWedia. “And especially for events raised by HA nodes; this is what we have achieved with this successful integration with OBLO”.last_img read more

The Noose Around Your Wealth Is Tightening O


first_img The Noose Around Your Wealth Is Tightening Out-of-control taxes… investment controls… predatory lawsuits… the risks to your capital are growing by the day. And the unfortunate truth is the more of your wealth you have in your home country, the greater the risk. That’s why it’s critical to internationalize as much of your hard-earned assets as you can – as fast as possible. Going Global 2013 will help you do just that. Featuring investment experts Doug Casey, Peter Schiff, Mike Maloney, and more, this must-see webinar will reveal offshore strategies you can easily implement to protect what’s rightfully yours. Click here for details. The silver price was much more ‘volatile’, as it traded in a two percent price range through Far East and London trading.  It also had the New York rally at the same time as gold…and it ended at the same time as gold, just before 11:00 a.m. EDT. According to Kitco, the high at that point was $22.13 spot, but got sold down back below the $22 spot price almost immediately. Silver closed at $21.79 spot…up 11 cents from Tuesday’s close.  Net volume was very light at only 22,000 contracts. (Click on image to enlarge) Maybe the 20-day moving average is being defended…but I’m speculating on that one. However, as I’ve mentioned on countless occasions, the dollar index is not much of a factor as far as the precious metals are concerned…and if there is much correlation, it’s usually when the index is rallying, as it becomes a cover for “da boyz” as they hit the p.m. prices…and the main stream media is always quick to jump on that particular bandwagon.  And as you can see lately, even though the dollar index is down sharply, the precious metals aren’t up at all…as there’s always a seller of last resort waiting in the wings the moment that occurs…the last three trading days being a case in point. I note in overnight trading in the Far East, that the Japanese stock markets got crushed for over 6 percent…and gold and silver’s attempts to break above the $1,400 and $22 price ceilings ran into a seller of last resort around 11:00 a.m. Hong Kong time on their Thursday morning.  After that, they both traded flat into the London open. But once London began to trade, all four precious metals got sold down a bit…and all are trading below their New York closes yesterday as I hit the ‘send’ button on today’s column at 5:10 a.m. EDT. Volumes are pretty decent in gold and silver already.  The dollar index is down another 21 basis points. That’s it for another day…and I’ll see you here tomorrow. The gold stocks rallied right from the open…and at their high of the day, just before noon in New York, they were up 2.5 percent…but then faded [along with the gold price] as the trading day progressed…and the HUI finished up only 0.91%. Another day when there aren’t that many stories…and I hope there a few in here that catch your eye. [The] gold mining industry, for the most part, is dumber than the rocks it digs out of the ground.  Too dumb to defend itself, purporting to be represented by the World Gold Council, which exists only to make sure that there never is a real world gold council. – Chris Powell, GATA…04 April 2013 It was another day where there wasn’t much volume…and not a lot of price action either.  However, it’s obvious the $1,400 price mark in gold…and $22 silver is still being vigorously defended.  By whom…and for what reason…is unknown. There’s certainly a scarcity of gold and silver-related stories at the moment…and I even checked some of the websites myself and there was nothing.  The only event of any importance coming up is the COT Report tomorrow…a lifetime away at the moment. I’ve noted that since the dollar index high/gold-silver low of May 20th, the dollar index has declined from 84.3 down to 80.7…and the gold price has been capped at the $1,400 mark…and every close above that price, no matter how brief, has been sold down to below the $1,400 price ceiling. During that dollar index decline of 370 basis points…4.4 percent…the gold price has not been allowed to reflect that decline…and is basically trading unchanged from its May 20th price.  Here’s the 30-day dollar index chart. It’s obvious the $1,400 price mark in gold…and $22 silver is still being vigorously defended. The gold price did nothing in the Far East and most of the London trading day on their Wednesday.  The New York low came at the 9:30 a.m. EDT open of the equity markets, just like it has for the last three days in a row. The subsequent rally got cut off at the knees shortly before 11:00 a.m. in New York…and a few minutes before the London close…just as it was about to get a sniff of the $1,400 price mark.  The high tick at that point was $1,395.80 spot.  From there it traded sideways into the Comex close…and then got sold down a bit in the New York Access Market. The gold price closed at $1,388.40 spot…up $10.20 on the day.  Gross volume wasn’t overly heavy at 121,000 contracts. But the silver stocks finished slightly in the red…as Nick Laird’s Intraday Silver Sentiment Index closed down 0.19%. Here’s the 30-day gold chart, with the 20 and 50-day moving averages shown. (Click on image to enlarge) The CME’s Daily Delivery Report was another non-event on Wednesday, as only 3 gold and 17 silver contracts were posted for delivery within the Comex-approved depositories on Friday. We’re getting on in the June delivery month, so unless there are some big surprised between now and June 30th, we shouldn’t expect big deliveries, as most are done within the first week of the delivery month. There were no reported changes in either GLD or SLV yesterday…and there was no sales report from the U.S. Mint, either. Over at the Comex-approved depositories on Tuesday, they reported receiving 99,690 troy ounces of silver…and didn’t ship any out.  The link to that activity is here. In gold on Tuesday, these same depositories didn’t report receiving any, but did ship out 45,371 troy ounces of the stuff…all out of Brink’s, Inc.  The link to that activity is here. No charts or graphs again today…but here’s your ‘cute quota’… Sponsor Advertisement It was obvious to me that if a willing seller hadn’t shown up in the Comex gold and silver markets just before 11:00 a.m. in New York, both metals would have closed materially higher. The dollar index closed at 81.05 late on Tuesday afternoon…and began to rally slightly right from the open in Far East trading on their Wednesday morning.  The high tick of the day…81.30…came at 8:00 a.m. EDT right on the button. From there it got sold down to its low tick…80.78…which came just before noon in New York.  The subsequent rally didn’t make it back above the 81.00 level…and closed at 80.91…down 14 basis points on the day.last_img read more

first_img Sponsor Advertisement The HUI opened in the green, but despite the fact that gold spent most of the New York trading day in positive territory, there was someone there to sell gold shares.  The HUI finished almost on its low of the day, down 1.63%. The highs for the day in platinum and palladium came in early morning Far East trading.  The HFT boys showed up in platinum immediately, and by 11:30 a.m. in New York, the low was in.  The subsequent rally didn’t get far.  Palladium didn’t get the same treatment until shortly before 9 a.m. EST.  It should be obvious, that the HFT boys were all over these two precious metals yesterday.  Here are the charts. You won’t have to ask if “this is it” or not, as it will be self-evident From a net volume perspective, it was a very quiet trading day yesterday, so not too much of anything should be read into yesterday’s price action in gold.  Ditto for silver. The tiny rally in early Far East trading wasn’t allowed to bet far, and from there it got sold down to its low of the day, which came at, or just before, the London a.m. gold fix. From there it rallied until precisely 12 o’clock noon in New York, and then chopped quietly sideways into the 5:15 p.m. EST electronic close. The low and high were reported by the CME at $1,279.60 and $1,290.80 in the December contract. Gold closed at $1,290.40 spot, up $3.10 from Thursday’s close.  Net volume was fumes and vapours at only 76,000 contracts. The silver shares chopped around either side of unchanged for the entire New York trading session, and Nick Laird’s Intraday Silver Sentiment Index closed down a tiny 0.13%. The silver price didn’t do much until early afternoon in Hong Kong trading, and then got sold down to its low of the day which came shortly after the London open.  The subsequent rally got capped about twenty minutes after the Comex open, and the silver price did little of anything after that. The CME recorded the low and high as $20.55 and $20.82 in the December contracts. Silver finished the Friday session at $20.78 spot, up 3.5 cents from Thursday.  Net volume was a miniscule 20,500 contracts.center_img The CME’s Daily Delivery Report showed that zero gold and one silver contract were posted for delivery on Tuesday. There were no reported changes in GLD, but there was a small amount of silver added to SLV, as an authorized participant deposited 385,264 troy ounces. There was no sales report from the U.S. Mint. There was very little in/out gold activity over at the Comex-approved depositories on Thursday.  395 troy ounces were reported received, and nothing shipped out the door. As always, it was an entirely different story in silver, as 801,444 troy ounces were reported received, and 751,562 ounces were shipped out.  The link to that activity is here. Yesterday’s Commitment of Traders Report pretty much lived up to its advance billing, especially in gold.  But silver wasn’t all that bad, either; although I was hoping/expecting slightly better numbers. The Commercial net short position in silver decreased by 16.0 million ounces, and is now down to 113.1 million ounces.  Not surprisingly, the technical funds loaded up on the short side and sold some longs as well, as the high frequency traders in the Commercial category set prices lower at the start of the reporting week, and the technical funds followed the script like the brain-dead sheep that Ted Butler says they are. The Commercial traders stood by and happily did the opposite.  The big surprise for me, was the substantial increase in the long position in the Nonreportable/small trader category.  One would have thought they they would have mirrored the actions of the technical funds, but that was not the case.  They increased their net long position by a chunky 2,662 contracts, or 13.3 million ounces.  I’ve never seen that before on any price decline, and neither Ted nor myself are sure of what to make of it. The other surprise in silver was that Ted felt that JPMorgan’s short-side corner in silver didn’t decline by much, if at all, and still sits very close to his revised 75 million ounces based on the data from the latest Bank Participation Report that came out on Monday.  But, just doing the math, JPMorgan still holds about two thirds of the entire Commercial net short position in silver all by itself.  How’s that for concentration? In gold the Commercials traders decreased their net short position by an eye-watering 2.81 million [Comex paper] ounces, and all at the expense of the technical funds that sit in front of their computer screens buying and selling on the moving averages.  The Commercials played them like a fiddle again last week. The Commercial net short position is down to 6.58 million ounces.  This is not the lowest it has ever been, but it’s darn close. In the process, the non-Commercials sold 4,969 long contracts and bought an astounding 24,815 short contracts, for a total of 2.98 million [Comex paper] troy ounces.  The Commercial traders happily did precisely the opposite.  But, as in silver, the small traders in gold also ended the week increasing their net long position.  It wasn’t much, only 1,669 contracts, but it should have been a decrease as well.  I’ve never once mentioned copper in my COT comments, but I will today, as Ted Butler has mentioned it in his report from time to time, and it was the same story there as well.  The Commercials tricked the tech funds into selling longs and buying short positions, while JPMorgan et al loaded up on the long side.  The Noncommercial/small trader went long for the reporting week as well. I look forward to hearing what Ted has to say about all this in his weekly report to his paying subscribers later today, and if I find something I think you might be interested in, I’ll steal it for my Tuesday column. Here’s Nick Laird’s “Days of World Production to Cover Short Positions” chart for all physical commodities traded on the Comex, updated with yesterday’s COT data. The dollar index closed on Thursday in New York at 81.03.  The price traded sideways in Far East trading up until 3 p.m. Hong Kong time.  The subsequent rally topped out at 81.15 about 9:40 a.m. in London, and then by 9:15 a.m in New York, the index had fallen down to the  80.81 mark.  The smallish rally after that didn’t last, and the index closed at 80.84, which was down 19 basis points from Thursday. Since JPMorgan has a long-side corner in the Comex futures market in gold, their positions won’t be found on this chart. The important take-away from this chart is the monstrous short positions held in all four precious metals, along with the fact that the four largest traders hold the lion’s share of the short position in all, to the point where the holdings of the next ‘5 through 8’ traders are almost immaterial. I have a decent number of stories for your weekend reading pleasure, including a few that I’ve been saving for today’s column. The deliberate nature of the current price decline is good news for future performance because it provides the explanation for why we have dropped so much in silver. We went down in price this year because JPMorgan and other commercial traders tricked the technical funds into selling on progressively lower prices on numerous occasions. The technical funds did well for some time early in the year as prices continued to fall, benefiting initial sales, but the choppy price action over the past few months has hurt the tech funds. But tech fund performance is moot; what is important is that Comex positioning caused the price decline, as is confirmed in COT and Bank Participation Report data. The reason this is also good news is because not only does it explain the decline, it rules out other reasons that would have been much more problematic. Let’s face it, had the big silver price decline been due to widespread investment selling, or collapsing industrial demand or a dramatic surge in mine or recycling output, that would temper future bullish expectations. But as far as I can tell, none of those things occurred; the clearest and most plausible explanation for the silver price decline was the rigging of price on the Comex. – Silver Analyst Ted Butler: 13 November 2013 Today’s pop ‘blast from the past’ is 37 years young, hailing from 1976.  It’s amazing where all the times goes.  This pop classic was a one-hit wonder for a singer/song-writer named Henry Gross; but what a hit it was!  The astonishing story behind this song was that he wrote it about the death of Beach Boy Carl Wilson’s Irish Setter of the same name.  You couldn’t make this stuff up! The link is here. Camille Saint-Saëns composed Carnival of the Animals in 1886 shortly after his disastrous concert tour of 1885/86.  It’s a humorous musical suite of fourteen movements, and was written for private performance by an ad hoc ensemble of two pianos and other instruments. Saint-Saëns was adamant that the work would not be published in his lifetime, seeing it as detracting from his “serious” composer image. He relented only for the famous cello solo The Swan, which forms the penultimate movement of the work, and which was published in 1887 in an arrangement by the composer for cello and solo piano. Most of the time you hear this played as an encore piece when there’s a cellist as featured soloist, along with the harpist from the symphony orchestra involved.  But for purists, the piano/cello duet is the only version worth your while.  It’s a miniature masterpiece, and everyone has heard it in one form or another sometime in their lives.  The link to the youtube.com video is here.  Enjoy! There’s not much to discuss regarding yesterday’s price action in both gold and silver, but there was obvious price interference going on in both platinum and palladium. But as the Commitment of Traders Report so admirably showed, JPMorgan has covered as many short positions as they can in silver, and Ted Butler’s raptors are drowning in their almost-record long positions, and JPMorgan et al are also massively long the gold market, and in copper as well. But where we go from here, and the timing of that event, is only known to a handful of people.  Until then, nothing will be allowed to happen price-wise.  But the moment that policy changes, it will become immediately obvious in the price, and you won’t have to ask if “this is it” or not, as it will be self-evident. So all we can do until then is twiddle our thumbs and wait it out.  That’s all I’m doing. I have nothing else for you today, and I’ll see you here on Tuesday.

Editors note Agora founder Bill Bonner has never


first_imgEditor’s note: Agora founder Bill Bonner has never done anything like this before… If you haven’t heard, he recently committed to invest $5 million of his own family’s trust in the stock recommendations of just one of his analysts: expert value investor Chris Mayer. Chris has one of the best track records in the business. Over a 10-year span, he safely beat the markets by three-to-one and outperformed some of the world’s best investors, including Warren Buffett. And now, until tonight only, you can invest alongside Bill with a subscription to Chris’ brand-new service Bonner Private Portfolio. But, as Bill points out in today’s special essay, this service isn’t for everyone… By Bill Bonner, editor, The Bill Bonner Letter Today, we address a reader’s objection (shared by many, we suspect) about the new advisory from Chris Mayer we’ve been promoting, Bonner Private Portfolio: $1,950 is a lot of money for a few books and a couple of stock picks. I appreciate that you want to expand your asset base to benefit your descendants, but you’ll need to do it without my participation. When one of our affiliate groups published Chris’ research, they priced it at $49. Other readers have noticed, too: There’s a big jump from $49 to $1,950. Why? Are we just greedy? “Elasticity of demand” is what economists call it. We noticed it, too. You price something at $49, you get a lot of buyers. You set the price at $1,950, you get a lot fewer. If the elasticity is perfect… you get the same amount of money almost no matter what price you put on it. So, from a cash flow point of view, it made little difference (at least, in theory… but also backed by substantial experience) which price we put on Chris’ new service. “Greed” or “expanding our asset base” had nothing much to do with the choice of the price. Of course, we always want to expand our asset base; our company is not a nonprofit. But there’s more to the story… 10-Year Test We’ve been in this business for 36 years. We think… and hope… we’ve gotten better at what we do. Not only have we made progress in understanding how the investment world works, but also we understand better how our readers and customers react to it. Initially, we didn’t know whether Chris would succeed in making his readers money. It took 10 years to find out. During that time, readers could test him themselves – for less than the price of a newspaper subscription. And since neither we nor Chris’ readers knew exactly what we had, probably neither of us got the full value of his research. Subscribers came. And went. They bought. They sold. Nobody – maybe not even Chris – understood how valuable his recommendations were or what to do with them. But now we see that Chris is an excellent long-term, value-oriented investor. As we’ve been telling you, over a 10-year period, Chris’ recommendations beat the overall market three-to-one… beat Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway two-to-one… and turned every $10,000 into nearly $50,000. But you can’t make much money trading in and out of his recommendations. You have to buy and hold. And you have to be willing to sit through periods of substantial drawdowns. Recommended Links Rickards: “Don’t Buy A Single Ounce Of Gold…” **This is an URGENT warning from Jim Rickards.** If you’ve seen the writing on the wall, like me, you know that gold could soon hit $10,000 per ounce. However, today I’m urging you NOT to buy a single ounce of gold till you read what I have to say. Click here for access to my urgent gold announcement. – [EXPIRES TONIGHT] What Bill Bonner Discovered in Vancouver Will Shock You At a private meeting on a boat in Vancouver, Bill discovered an opportunity so impressive, he’s putting $5 million of his family trust money toward it. To find out how to join him, click this link before tonight at 11:59 p.m. — Sticking With It Most investors – and we use the term loosely – do not expect that from a $49 service. They want big ideas. They want speculations. They want to trade. They want more immediate gratification. Putting the average investor together with Chris is not good for either. Bonner Private Portfolio is for more serious, long-term family investors. It requires readers who understand how value investing works… and are willing to stick with it. It’s not exciting. There’s not much to talk about. There are few occasions for bragging about your results (unless, that is, you have plenty of patience). So, for Bonner Private Portfolio, we did not want a lot of readers; we only wanted the few who were suited to it. That’s why we deliberately put the price high: to discourage casual subscribers or those who had not enough money to make it worthwhile. We want serious subscribers who understand and appreciate the service. You can’t just “try it out for a few months.” You have to stick with it. Serious Bargain Is $1,950 the right price? Too much? Too little? We don’t know. But judging from the results, it might have been too low. We have more subscribers than we expected. That may be because the serious investor compares this service – as he should – with a managed account. If he puts his money with a value-oriented manager, he will pay upward of 2% a year (if you’re lucky). With $500,000 invested, that works out as $10,000 a year. The serious investor with serious money sees that Bonner Private Portfolio is a bargain at $1,950. Almost every investment approach works sometime for someone. But none work all the time for everybody. Some are meant for serious, long-term wealth building. Others give traders and speculators the adrenaline rush they look for. Some are good for sophisticated investors with a lot of money. Others are more appropriate for people with little money and little experience. Putting the right people together with the right service is still hit or miss. But we’re getting better at it. And pricing Chris’ new service at $1,950 is a step in the right direction.

Iowas Massive Bird Flu Outbreak Prompts Mexico to Ban Imported Poultry Eggs

Iowa’s Massive Bird Flu Outbreak Prompts Mexico to Ban Imported Poultry, Eggs Mexico, the biggest buyer of U.S. chicken, has halted imports of live birds and eggs from the U.S. state of Iowa due to an outbreak of deadly bird flu there, the Mexican government said on Tuesday.Mexico and other major countries last month imposed new export restrictions on poultry products from various U.S. states, but a new outbreak has hit top U.S. egg-producing state Iowa.Iowa found a lethal strain of bird flu in millions of hens at an egg-laying facility on Monday, the worst case so far in a national outbreak that prompted Wisconsin to declare a state of emergency.Bird flu, also called avian influenza or AI, is a viral disease that infects birds. Officials believe wild birds are spreading the virus but they do not know how it is entering barns.Shares of several leading meat companies’ in the United States fell on Tuesday on concerns over the Iowa outbreak.Mexico’s agriculture ministry said it and animal health body SENASICA had tightened controls and monitoring of migratory wild birds, and it said they were in constant contact with bird farms in Mexico to detect any suspicious cases domestically.The ministry emphasized that Mexico is self sufficient in the production of eggs for consumption, and that Mexican producers import fertilized eggs used for breeding.Iowa was already among 12 states that have detected bird flu in poultry since the beginning of the year. The other states are Arkansas, Idaho, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Oregon, South Dakota, Washington and Wisconsin.center_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals 2 min read Next Article Food Image credit: threeboydad | Foap This story originally appeared on Reuterslast_img read more


US adolescents spend little time in physical activity sleep and too long

(Editor)Feb 4 2019Only 1 in 20 U.S. adolescents is meeting national recommendations for sleeping, physical activity, and screen time, according to new research by The University of Texas Health Science Center at Houston (UTHealth).The study, published today in JAMA Pediatrics, also revealed differences in the findings between females and males, with just 3 percent of girls reaching all three guideline targets, compared to 7 percent of boys.”There is plenty of evidence to show how teenagers aren’t getting enough physical activity, or sufficient sleep, or keeping their screen time in check. But this is the first time these three factors, which have a crucial bearing on a child’s health, have been analyzed together among a nationally representative sample of U.S. adolescents,” said first author Gregory Knell, PhD, a postdoctoral research fellow at UTHealth School of Public Health in Dallas. “The results are a wake-up call for everyone who wants to make sure our children have a healthy future.”Related StoriesI’m a CPAP dropout: Why many lose sleep over apnea treatmentOlympus Europe and Cytosurge join hands to accelerate drug development, single cell researchSleep makes synapses ready for new learningIt is recommended by the National Sleep Foundation that children ages 14-18 sleep eight to 10 hours a night. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services recommends at least an hour of moderate or vigorous physical activity daily, and limiting screen time to less than two hours.The research involved nearly 60,000 American high school students, using data from the 2011-2017 Youth Risk Behavior Surveillance Survey.”By far the most startling finding was how few adolescents across the board are meeting all three recommendations,” Knell said. “I expected the percentage of adolescents meeting all three requirements concurrently to be low, but not this low.The combined effect on children’s overall health could be considerable in terms of their physical health, emotional well-being, and academic performance.”The study further examined other attributes of the child – age, race or ethnicity, weight, and mental health – and how these were linked to sleep, physical activity, and screen time.Findings showed older teenagers, non-Hispanic black children, Asian children, those classified as obese, and those who showed signs of depression were the least likely to meet all recommendations when compared to their counterparts.The paper calls for more research to better understand the relationship among sleep, physical activity, and screen time by exploring the effect these behaviors have on each other and their wider implications over time. It also urged doctors to ask patients about these behaviors, provide them and their parents with advice, and make any necessary specialist referrals.”These findings are only scratching the surface and demonstrate a need to learn more about the role parenting style and home environment may play in increasing or curtailing these behaviors,” Knell said. “Although the study confirms and further reveals how few children are leading optimal lifestyles, it also raises many questions about what can be done to reverse that trend and improve their health.”last_img read more


Tumor tissuefreezing method may help more women with breast cancer in lower


first_imgInnovation in cancer care doesn’t always mean you have to create an entirely new treatment, sometimes it means radically innovating on proven therapies such that they’re redesigned to be accessible to the majority of the world’s population.”Bailey Surtees, Johns Hopkins University biomedical engineering graduate and the study’s first author Reviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Jul 15 2019A new reusable device created by the Johns Hopkins University can help women with breast cancer in lower income countries by using carbon dioxide, a widely available and affordable gas, to power a cancer tissue-freezing probe instead of industry-standard argon.A study detailing the tool’s success in animals was published this month in PLOS One. “This project is a remarkable example of success from the Biomedical Engineering Design Program,” says Nicholas Durr, an Assistant Professor of Biomedical Engineering at Johns Hopkins and the study’s senior author. “This team of undergraduates has been so successful because they created a practical solution for the problem after really understanding the constraints that needed to be met to be impactful.”The largest cause of cancer-related mortality for women across the globe, breast cancer disproportionately affects women in lower-income countries due to lack of treatment. While the survival rate for women in the United States is greater than 90%, they are significantly lower at 64%, 46% and 12% in Saudi Arabia, Uganda and The Gambia, respectively.”Instead of saying ‘She has breast cancer,” the locals we met while conducting focus groups for our research said ‘She has death,’ because breast cancer is often considered an automatic death sentence in these communities,” adds Surtees.In lower-income countries, the main barriers to treating breast cancer are inadequate treatment options–with surgery, chemotherapy and radiation being impractical or too expensive–and long travel times to regional hospitals where efficient treatment is available. Even if a woman is able to travel to a hospital for treatment, she may not be seen and recovery times will keep her out of work for an additional few weeks.Killing cancerous tissue with cold, or cryoablation, is preferable to surgically removing tumors in these countries because it eliminates the need for a sterile operating room and anesthesia, thus making it possible to local clinics to perform the procedure. It’s also minimally invasive, thereby reducing complications such as pain, bleeding and extended recovery time.Related StoriesHow cell-free DNA can be targeted to prevent spread of tumorsTrends in colonoscopy rates not aligned with increase in early onset colorectal cancerNew protein target for deadly ovarian cancerCurrent cryoablation technologies, however, are too expensive, with a single treatment costing upwards of $10,000, and are dependent on argon gas, which typically isn’t available in lower-income countries, to form the tissue-killing ice crystals.With these barriers in mind, the student-led research team, named Kubanda (which means “cold” in Zulu), wanted to create a tissue-freezing tool that uses carbon dioxide, which is already widely available in most rural areas thanks to the popularity of carbonated drinks.The research team tested their tool in three experiments to ensure it could remain cold enough in conditions similar to the human breast and successfully kill tumor tissue.In the first experiment, the team used the tool on jars of ultrasound gel, which thermodynamically mimics human breast tissue, to determine whether it could successfully reach standard freezing temperatures killing tissue and form consistent iceballs. In all trials, the device formed large enough iceballs and reached temperatures below -40 degrees Celsius, which meets standard freezing temperatures for tissue death for similar devices in the United States.For the second experiment, the team treated 9 rats with 10 mammary tumors. Afterwards, they looked at the tissue under a microscope and confirmed that the tool successfully killed 85% or more tissue for all tumors.Finally, the team tested the tool’s ability to reach temperatures cold enough for tissue destruction in the normal liver of a pig, which has a temperature similar to a human breast. The device was successfully able to stay cold enough during the entire experiment to kill the target tissue.”When we started the project, experts in the area told us it was impossible to ablate meaningful tissue volumes with carbon dioxide. This mindset may have come from both the momentum of the field and also from not thinking about the importance of driving down the cost of this treatment,” says Durr.While the results are promising, the device still requires additional experiments before it’s ready for commercial use. Mainly, the research team’s next steps are to ensure it can consistently kill cancer tissue under the same heat conditions as human breast tissue.In the near future, the team hopes to continue testing their device for human use, and expand its use to pets.

Gadgets Device lets you pour the wine without removing the cork

The content is provided for information purposes only. Here are some sayings the company uses to describe the product; “any wine any amount, savor the glass preserve the bottle, just insert tip and pour” and my favorite “The wine you want in the amount you want without ever pulling the cork.”But “Open a bottle,” which is scribbled out, is the line you need to know because the bottle doesn’t open. Call it magic, or just call it technology as I would prefer. Either way, this is an incredibly innovative device, which works to perfection.How does it work? At last month’s Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, Coravin displayed the upcoming model 11, which should set you back around $999. It shoots a thin needle into the bottle’s cork and any wrapping the cork is sealed in. No need to remove anything.A thin needle was inserted into the bottle, and then a company representative kindly poured me a glass of wine (I was not driving this night). She handed me the bottle to inspect, and it was a real bottle, no hidden curtains, no rabbit in a box, just a wine opener and a bottle. Which I then turned over to see if anything would spill and it was dry, not a drop. Upon close inspection of where the needle entered, you can barely see any evidence.This system allows your wine to remain fresh since the cork is not removed. My demonstrator explained after the Coravin is removed, the cork simply shrinks back together.The Coravin holds your bottle, and with load cell technology, the capsule-loading chamber creates the perfect amount of force for an airtight seal, ensuring no gas escapes after probing the bottle. According to Coravin, the capsules contain more than 99.99 percent pure argon gas to protect the remaining wine from oxidation.If the high-end price model scares you, there are more choices. The Coravin Model Two Wine System gives wine lovers the freedom to pour any wine, in any amount, without removing the cork for a sip or full glass.Model Two its referred to as an elegant design and durable craftsmanship with textured rubber grips and ergonomic lines. It includes two Coravin capsules to pour up to 30 glasses of wine. Model 11 will be out in September and will have an app to make it the world’s first connected and fully automatic wine preservation opener. The app will make suggestions for wine and will show how much gas is left in the capsules.

Plymouth startup creates One Spot app to streamline work of property managers


For apartment building owners, Google Fiber can be a tough sell Explore further Citation: Plymouth startup creates One Spot app to streamline work of property managers (2018, April 27) retrieved 18 July 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2018-04-plymouth-startup-app-property.html Whether it’s the condition of the HVAC system or the locations of the utility meters, his team would jot down details on paper and take photos before the findings were cut and pasted together to form a report, a process that could take several weeks.But with the help of new Twin Cities property management software One Spot, Jackson’s team can complete their assessments in a fraction of the time and save a large chunk of money.”It takes an enormous amount of time to put these together. … Now, we can turn and burn these things,” said Jackson, vice president of Engineering and Property Services at the Twin Cities office of real estate company Colliers International.One Spot had its full commercial launch last month as a tool for property inspectors, tenants and primarily property managers who oversee the day-to-day maintenance of commercial properties like office buildings, industrial warehouses and retail strip malls.The Plymouth startup allows users to report on property repairs and assets in real-time. The mobile app lets property managers and tenants take photos of areas around their property that need repair and upload their geolocation points (the software is integrated with Google Maps). The points can be tagged with different categories and comments before they are e-mailed out for bids for contractors or pushed to internal team members. Tenants can also report issues and can see when a problem is fixed as well.”The commercial property manager, they are operating with things that are 10 years old. … Everything is so disorganized,” said Keith Pelatowski, chief executive of One Spot.Technology is better used in residential management of large apartment complexes than in commercial property management, Pelatowski said.Many times, property managers communicate with tenants and contractors through a mix of Snapchat, text, e-mail, and phone calls. But some communication can often fall through the cracks, Pelatowski said, with managers sometimes not hearing from tenants about issues, work being executed without managers and tenants knowing it was completed, and fees not being collected for work done. Before a client buys a commercial building, Tim Jackson’s team of maintenance technicians has to walk the property to check for any potential issues. This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. ©2018 Star Tribune (Minneapolis) Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC. One Spot is supposed to help streamline communication and improve the workflow, Pelatowski said.One Spot was the brainchild of Rich Byrne and Steve Bartz, co-owners of Twin City Outdoor Services, or TCOS, a concrete-replacement and snow-management company. Several years ago, TCOS created an internal digital platform to keep track of bid work more efficiently. The clients liked what they saw, which led Bartz and Byrne to invest in a platform that could serve a range of users. After about two years of development, One Spot was piloted last year by 30 property-management companies in the Twin Cities.”What is really exciting is the ‘user-centered design’ approach, which means our customers can directly shape the future of the software based on their input and needs—in order to solve their problems,” Byrne said in a statement.Colliers’ engineering and property services division helped to test the One Spot program and became an official client at the beginning of this year. According to a case study, One Spot on average reduced Colliers’ time spent on a property condition assessment report from 40 hours to six hours and the cost to complete the report from $769 to just $115.Utilizing One Spot has also had a beneficial impact on Colliers later winning more business to continue to provide maintenance for a property, Jackson said. While there are other technology services that Colliers could use, they normally cost more and have longer contracts, Jackson said.”The (One Spot) program and the economics fit well for us,” he said.Colliers’ property management division also piloted the program last year with some of its portfolio. After recently reviewing some of the program’s updates, the department is considering becoming an official client, said Brett Greenfield, portfolio manager at Colliers.”I think that it is a fantastic app and I think that it definitely can improve the lives of our property managers in certain situations,” he said.There are other improvements that the One Spot team is already planning. Future development could include augmented-reality technology and possibly 360 degree views to better service the inside of multilevel buildings and give One Spot “a bit of a competitive advantage,” Pelatowski said. The company plans to also expand its focus to include the property management of residential complexes. read more

Credit: Purdue Research Foundation image/Oren Darling While it can take more than an hour to produce a batch of 100 to 300 capsules, Pinpoint Pharma’s printer cuts the total time per patient to 10 minutes, including cleanup, and is flexible on the product form suited to the individual pet.”We can make about one dose every second, or even faster,” Giridhar said. The printer also is more precise, using a tracking mechanism to record how many drops of medicine are dispensed in each dose and the volume of each drop, in real time. Typically making a batch of pills can have variances in potency between doses, Giridhar said.The printer also helps make potent medications that have a narrow therapeutic index, where small differences in dose concentration can lead to serious therapeutic failures or adverse drug reactions.”In such cases, it becomes important to dose very precisely,” Giridhar said.Giridhar said what sets Pinpoint Pharma apart is that the team has more experience in this field and the company has worked with a wide variety of medications.Earlier this year, the startup was chosen by gener8tor, a nationally ranked accelerator based in Milwaukee, for its gBETA program, a seven-week accelerator for early-stage companies with local roots. Pinpoint Pharma was one of five startups selected from 52 applicants for the inaugural Indiana cohort; gener8tor also operates programs in Wisconsin, Michigan, Ohio and Minnesota. The program provides mentors, advice on business models and suggestions on ways to grow. It also gives the startups office space and up to $1 million in deals and perks from vendors.”Our experience with gBETA has helped Pinpoint Pharma move forward with our business model and develop new relationships with customers, mentors and investors,” Giridhar said.

The company is among three startups receiving assistance from the Purdue Foundry and eight startups from Indiana that will be featured Sept. 5-7 at the TechCrunch Disrupt SF Conference in San Francisco.Pinpoint Pharma is a precision compounding pharmacy for veterinarians, ensuring that the medicine tailored to each individual animal’s needs is easier for pet owners to give and for pets to take, which optimizes clinical outcomes.Arun Giridhar, Pinpoint Pharma’s chief executive officer, and three faculty members of Purdue’s Department of Industrial and Physical Pharmacy and Davidson School of Chemical Engineering founded Pinpoint Pharma two years ago, and have been joined recently by Angela Demaree, a nationally known veterinarian, who received her DVM from Purdue. The goal was to create a device like an inkjet printer that could precisely dispense pharmaceuticals to meet a growing need for customized medication for pets instead of a one-size-fits-all approach generally taken.”When a pet has a specific requirement as determined by their vet, we can dispense the exact amounts and ratios of active ingredients needed for a pill, in a form and flavor that the specific pet will love,” Giridhar said.For pets, the one-size-fits-all method doesn’t always work.”Our medicine printer allows veterinarians to be very precise in serving an animal as an individual rather than as the average of a population.”Giridhar said Pinpoint Pharma’s medicine printer has two advantages over other methods used to make customized drug products: it is faster and more precise.

Tribal Welfare Minister Vishnu Savra said that 3.6 lakh claims were received, of which 1.74 lakh have been settled in favour of the tribals. Similarly, 12,000 claims for community forest activity were received, of which 7,700 have been settled, he said.Two-day march Fadnavis assured the delegation that the remaining claims would be settled by December this year. The march reached Azad Maidan early Thursday, eight months after a similar protest was held at the venue. The farmers and tribals who began the two-day march from Thane to Mumbai on Wednesday. Magsaysay award winner Dr Rajendra Singh, also known as the Waterman of India, was among the marchers. He blamed the government for the drought, which he termed as “man-made”. The farmers are demanding implementation of the Swaminathan Committee report, which suggested that farmers must have assured access and control over resources such as land and water. They are also demanding an increase in the minimum support price (MSP) and a judicial system to ensure its implementation. “We have been consistently asking the State government to fulfil our long-standing demands, but the response has been lukewarm. We were forced to launch this agitation,” said Pratibha Shinde, general secretary of the Lok Sangharsh Morcha, which is organising the protest. SHARE COMMENTSlast_img read more
