Top sports officials resolve most remaining issues for UN antidoping treaty

Top sports officials from 89 countries have resolved most of the remaining questions for a preliminary international convention against doping to be submitted for adoption by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) in October. “The state of progress of the drafting of the convention and the political will demonstrated by Member States help us nurture the hope that this new legal instrument may be ratified in time for the Winter Olympics of 2006 in Turin, Italy, although this is an extremely tight deadline,” UNESCO Assistant Director-General Françoise Rivière said yesterday at the end of the ministerial meeting in Athens, Greece. “More than a repressive instrument, this text will give education and information the prominence they deserve… about the ill-effects of doping in both physical and ethical terms.” UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura told the opening session of the Fourth International Conference of Ministers and Senior Officials Responsible for Sport and Physical Education (MINEPS IV).The three-day meeting, which brought together some 270 representatives from 89 countries, among them 40 ministers, adopted the Athens Declaration undertaking to “implement coherent policies and take specific measures for the development of physical education.” The consensus reached on most of the remaining questions for the Draft International Convention Against Doping in Sport should enable experts meeting in Paris in January to finalize the preliminary text for adoption by the 33rd session of UNESCO’s General Conference in October, the agency said. “Urgency and determination to take action were the two overriding sentiments that marked the debates at MINEPS IV, whether on the quality of physical education and the practice of sport, or the reaffirmation of ladies’ participation, and the need to combat doping,” Ms. Rivière said. The idea of the new legal instrument was launched during a ministerial round-table meeting at UNESCO Headquarters in Paris in January, 2003, bringing together 360 participants from 103 countries. read more

Fuel costs rise for first time in five months AA survey

first_imgA MONTHLY SURVEY by AA Ireland has found that the average cost of a litre of motor fuel has risen for the first time in five months.The monthly data for February shows that an average litre of petrol costs 159.4 cent, while an average litre of diesel costs 153.7 cent.Petrol prices are up 1.5 cent a litre from January’s figures, while diesel is up 2.9 cent.Prices had fallen steadily each month since September, when they had reached an all-time Irish record of 170.0 cent for petrol and 160.0 cent for diesel.AA Ireland’s director of consumer affairs Conor Faughnan said 2012 was “an appalling year for fuel prices – the worst we have ever had,” but that the price of oil had been relatively stable since then because of the rising value of the euro.“Internationally, it is hard to fathom the reasons for a rise right now,” he said.“Forecasts for oil demand in 2013 are quite weak, mirroring economic data, and we even had a relatively mild winter. For the price of fuel to be rising now is surprising and very disappointing.”AA’s data suggests that an average motorist who drives 1,000 miles (1,605 kilometres) per month would have to pay €240 a month for petrol – of which €131.50 was tax which would be returned to the government.AA surveys ten years ago showed the average price of petrol then to be 89.5 cent per litre, while diesel cost 82.1 cent per litre.August: Irish petrol prices some of the world’s highestlast_img read more

Capturing the colours

first_imgSo it was, with artist Sun I-Yu when she first visited India more than 10 years ago. In her on going exhibition Colours of India, she has put together a series of oil paintings and crystal sculptures reflecting her impressions of the country.For her colour and beauty in India is not mere theory, it is a practical expression of national identity, shaped by religious devotion and a long and proud cultural heritage. In artist Sun L-Yu’s words ‘Indians are magicians when it comes to matching colours – putting orange with purple evokes celebrations and festivals, deep blue with dark green portrays serenity, yellow and fuchsia is vivid and full of vitality. Men’s turbans, too, display a distinct sense of character, reflecting the personality of the wearer and speaking of firmness of purpose’. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’Besides the wealth, she saw the poverty in the country, but was particularly struck by the breathtaking colours that she witnessed all around. On that very first trip, she was captivated by the dazzling spectrum of hues of even the simplest garments. Then, after seeing them again and again over several years, she gained a firm sense of the vibrant spirit that runs through daily life in this country. Over the course of her visits to India, she has endeavoured to capture in her painting the pure, vibrant visual sensation of the country.When: 12th December, 11 am onwardsWhere: Lokayata Artists Gallery Hauz Khas Villagelast_img read more

The world of cultural mafia captured on stage

first_imgPage4, it’s also a game’ was a play penned down by Bratya Basu in 2005, and staged in 2006 by the theatre group ‘Ganakrishti’.  The play has been re-staged after 10 years by another theatre group, Institute of Factual Theatre Arts (IFTA) headed by Debasish Dutta, a student and a scholar of Sangeet Natak Akademi in 2016. The storyline involves a battle between two cultural mafias, Girdharilal and Mohandas who are in control of different literary and cultural zones. The word ‘mafia’ is a commonly used parlance but the phrase ‘cultural mafia’ creates an interesting overtone.  Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’The two cultural mafias were friends who had shared their cultural dreams and creativity with each other before they were trapped in the web of ambition, fame and power. They separated from each other to establish their cultural hegemony in terms of controlling central grants, winning state favours, possessing power to make decisions related to hall bookings and arranging book fair, control over cultural institutions, etc. They were self-proclaimed ‘dons’ embracing the cultural façade to execute the art of literary nepotism, plagiarism, royalty sharing in the style of a corporate mafia. It is an absorbing tale of the two dons fighting for establishing their pre-eminence in the cultural world at any cost. This dominance is obviously associated with economic well-being and high status of writers, poets, other fame-seekers who are the natural cohorts of these cultural empires.  Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe playwright reveals the emotions of jealousy, revenge, mean mindedness and ego clash with cultural figures of eminence, literally clawing into each other to win their share of fame and money. The narrative continues at the den of the don, Girdharilal, whose cultural power is not without strong links with state administration, local police, political leaders and even the ministers in power. The play unmasks the intellectual veil of the ‘bhadrolok’ society to reflect the ethical void of celebrities, making the play amazingly germane not only to the present context, but also cutting across space and time. The message seems to be clear – success cannot come with sheer talent and creative potential alone.  It is a battle between those who can play the game of shrewdness, ferocity and sheer violence.  The strategies have to be drawn with finesse, the judgment has to be sharp. The way to the crest has to be reached with intelligence, grit and determination and of course by removing all those who act as obstacles in the path to success. But not all is drawn in the colour scheme of black and white. The complex human side of the ‘don’ Girdharilal is visible when he helps the needy to get grants, commissions, and earn their daily economic needs. He reveals revulsion towards his professional world when he refuses to allow his children to enter his business, even when his son seems to be emotionally moved by reading Bibhutibhusan’s Chander Pahar. His emotional traits and vulnerabilities are laid bare to the maximum when the play reaches the climax and the two dons, Girdharilal and Mohandas, meet. They reminisce over their golden past of togetherness by speaking their heart out on their dreams; they recite plays under the moonlit night, and unhesitatingly admit their love and obsession for each other’s creation.The director, Debasish Dutta added, ‘The thought process of the persons involved with theatre has changed with time. They are now actively participating in the rat race for their survival. They do not mind even removing the obstacle which comes in the way. It is frightening to see the person closest to you have fallen in this vicious cycle. It has not even spared the creative world. The conflict of the interchanging face and the fascia in the changing society disturbs me a lot. The play exactly depicts the same’.  The playwright also expressed his confidence on this young director. The veracity of the play written way back is still so pertinent that it rekindles the scheme of corruption at the cultural level, which people face every moment but there are a very few who raise their voice against it.

A treatment planning solution with gold-standard Monte Carlo accuracy and multicriteria optimization, Monaco supports radiotherapy techniques, including advanced 3-D, intensity modulated radiotherapy (IMRT), volumetric modulated arc therapy (VMAT) and highly-complex stereotactic treatments.Monaco empowers users to attain accuracy without compromise for faster, more efficient treatment planning. Template sharing functionality complemented by Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG) and user-based integrated templates enable class solution planning and best practice-sharing across departments, organizations and professional communities. “The latest version of Elekta’s Monaco software offers several enhancements to optimize patient workflow, including a significantly faster optimization time and template planning,” said Sotiri Stathakis, Ph.D., associate professor, radiation oncology and radiology at University of Texas Health Science Center in San Antonio, Texas. “These data demonstrate that Monaco software supports highly accurate treatment planning, using best-in-class Monte Carlo dose calculations, in a range of clinical environments.”Recent presentations presented AAPM 2016 highlighting Monaco include:“Differences in Lung Sparing in Deep Inspiration Breath-Hold and Free Breathing Breast Plans Calculated in Pinnacle and Monaco”This presentation described five patients undergoing deep inspiration breath-hold (DIBH) breast radiotherapy. Breath hold and free breathing plans doses were initially determined using the Phillips Pinnacle system and re-calculated with Monaco to determine if there were significant differences. Researchers reported equivalent dose reductions for both systems, with observed lung doses that were significantly higher when calculated using the Monte Carlo algorithm in Monaco. The authors state that Monte Carlo calculation can provide insight into dose in the actual dose in lung for both breath hold and free breathing breast cancer patients treated with radiation.

Computed tomography (CT) image sets along with the plan, doses and structures were exported to the Monaco treatment planning software (TPS) and the dose was recalculated using the same voxel resolution (a value on a regular grid in three-dimensional space) and monitor units. Benchmark data was also generated prior to patient calculations to assess accuracy of the two TPS against measurements using a micro-ionization chamber in solid water. Authors observed good agreement for measurements in water and noted that dosing differences varied up to 9.6 percent, concluding that Monte Carlo is a superior dose calculation algorithm.

Researchers concluded that the accuracy of dose calculation for the small fields in Monaco Monte Carlo algorithm was validated in the three different materials, and found that the results were consistent with measurement data.For more information: www.elekta.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The top piece of content in July was a video interview explaining how Princess Margaret Cancer Center is using machine learning to create automated treatment plans. This was a hot topic at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) 2019 meeting in July.  “Monte Carlo Re-Evaluation of Volumetric-Modulated Arc Plans of Advanced Stage Nasopharyngeal Cancers Optimized with Convolution-Superposition Algorithm”This study examined Monaco recalculation of 29 treatment plans for advanced-stage nasopharyngeal cancers (NPC). Results demonstrated that significant dosimetric differences in NPC treatment plans were observed between a convolution-superposition (CS) algorithm used in the Pinnacle system and the Monte Carlo calculations in Monaco software. Results indicated that PTV54-70Gy doses are higher and consistently predicted by Monte Carlo. The authors conclude that adjustments of the planning dose constraints to incorporate the physics differences from a conventional CS algorithm should be made when optimization is carried out directly with a Monte Carlo dose engine.

All plans were recalculated within Monaco using a Monte-Carlo algorithm and prescription isodose volume to target volume ratio (PITV), R50 (the ratio of the volume irradiated to 50 percent of the prescribed dose to the volume of the planning treatment volume), conformity (a measurement of how well the dose was delivered to the target) and homogeneity indices were computed and used for stereotactic body radiation therapy (SBRT) plan evaluation. The mean PITV for Monaco increased 7 percent over Pinnacle, while the standard deviation increased from 0.047 to 0.076. The Homogeneity Index increased from 1.32 to 1.35. The Target Coverage decreased slightly from 0.98 to 0.97, with standard deviations for Homogeneity Index and Target coverage varying insignificantly by less than 0.2 percent. Researchers concluded that the increase PITV shows that the prescription dose volume increased in the treatment plans calculated by Monaco. The value of Monaco’s Monte Carlo calculation accuracy to stereotactic (small) field dosimetry was demonstrated by the authors. It was shown that dose inaccuracy greater than 5 percent (the level of clinical significance) is possible when non-Monte Carlo calculations are used, implying that Monte Carlo is valuable to patients being treated with small stereotactic fields.

Trulia Asking Prices Post Major Gains Rent Prices Cool in January

first_img February 5, 2013 447 Views Share Agents & Brokers Asking Prices Attorneys & Title Companies Home Prices Home Values Investors Jobs Lenders & Servicers Processing Service Providers Trulia Unemployment 2013-02-05 Tory Barringer Asking prices rose dramatically in January as renting prices cooled off somewhat, according to the latest data in “”Trulia’s””:http://www.trulia.com/ “”Price and Rent monitors””:http://trends.truliablog.com/2013/02/trulia-price-rent-monitors-jan-2013/.[IMAGE]The company’s Price Monitor showed a 0.3 percent quarter-over-quarter rise in January (without seasonal adjustment), turning on its head the typical wintertime trend. On a seasonally adjusted basis, prices increased 2.2 percent quarterly.Moreover, prices rose 0.9 percent month-over-month, the highest monthly gain since the price recovery began. Year-over-year, prices were up 5.9 percent from January 2012 (6.5 percent excluding foreclosures).While January’s numbers signal a strong price recovery, Trulia chief economist Jed Kolko warned that the month’s gains could disappear as rapidly as they came on.””In many local markets today, dramatic price gains can mask serious red flags,”” Kolko said. “”Strong job growth, low vacancy rate, and low foreclosure inventory–not huge price gains–are signs of a healthy housing market. Without strong underlying market fundamentals, price rebounds might be here today, but gone tomorrow.””[COLUMN_BREAK]The company pointed to examples of “”booming”” markets such as San Francisco, California; Seattle, Washington; and Denver, Colorado; as examples of areas where prices are supported by strong job growth and are unthreatened by future foreclosures.While they’re currently benefitting from investor interest, “”rebounding”” markets like Phoenix, Arizona, and Las Vegas, Nevada, remain at risk from slow employment growth, high vacancies, and future foreclosures, Trulia said.Meanwhile, “”struggling”” markets like Newark, New Jersey; Chicago, Illinois; and Albuquerque, New Mexico, suffer from weak fundamentals and slow price gains.With more newly constructed multi-unit buildings coming to complete, rent gains fell behind asking price gains at the national level for the first time since the price recovery began last spring.In January, rents rose 4.1 percent year-over-year on the national level, slowing down from 4.7 percent halfway through 2012.Regionally, rent improvements cooled the most in San Francisco, where rents rose only 2.4 percent compared to 11.5 percent in July 2012. According to the Census Bureau, construction activity in San Francisco has been well above normal for the last year, with most of it happening in multi-unit buildings.””Rent gains are slowing down because of more supply, not less demand,”” Kolko said. “”Many of the multi-unit buildings that have been under construction over the past two years are now coming onto the market. Renters in San Francisco, Seattle, and Denver are starting to get a touch of relief, even though rising prices might put homeownership out of their reach.””center_img in Data, Government, Origination, Secondary Market, Servicing Trulia: Asking Prices Post Major Gains, Rent Prices Cool in Januarylast_img read more

Top Stories

first_img Top Stories The personnel decisions didn’t work out for the Cavaliers and we all know where the next chapter of the LeBron James story went. If the Arizona Cardinals acquire Kyle Orton or Kevin Kolb they need to be doing it because they think one of them can be their quarterback for the next five to seven years, not to keep Larry Fitzgerald. I concentrate on those two names because they are the two players that can set the Cardinals franchise back another three to four years if the move doesn’t pan out. Giving up a player or high draft pick for Orton or Kolb is making a commitment to who your quarterback is. I understand the NBA and NFL have different salary structures and in the NFL it is much easier to reshape a team than it is in the NBA. However, the one position in the NFL that can hamstring you long-term is quarterback. Arizona must truly believe in Kolb or Orton if they go in that direction. If Arizona makes the move for Kolb or Orton and it doesn’t work out they will be watching Larry Fitzgerald in another uniform anyway. As any Cleveland Cavaliers fan would gladly tell you, watching your superstar go onto success in another city is not an enjoyable experience. 0 Comments   Share   Larry Fitzgerald is arguably the best wide receiver in the NFL, but the Arizona Cardinals can not let his status as a free agent after the season influence what they decide to do with the quarterback position. It is a huge mistake for an organization to base decisions around one player — just ask the Cleveland Cavaliers. For years the Cavs tried to appease LeBron James. They overpaid for Larry Hughes, Daniel Gibson (one of LeBron’s best friends on the team) and Mo Williams. They made poor trades for Antwan Jamison and Shaquille O’Neal.
