In the news today May 3

first_imgFive stories in the news for Friday, May 3———NO PMO INPUT IN SNC ELECTIONS DEAL: WATCHDOGThe watchdog who enforces Canada’s election laws says no one from the Prime Minister’s Office tried to help SNC-Lavalin avoid being charged with breaking campaign-financing rules. In a rare written statement, elections commissioner Yves Cote said Thursday that no minister, political staffer or public servant attempted to “influence or interfere” in any of his decisions “that did not directly involve them as the subject of the investigation.” Before Cote’s statement became public, the Conservatives had again asked the Liberals in question period whether anyone from Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s office leaned on Cote to let SNC-Lavalin sign what’s known as a compliance agreement after being found in violation of financing rules.———IS CLIMATE CHANGE INCREASING INSURANCE COSTS?Flood damage, particularly in Atlantic and Central Canada, has been dominating news coverage in recent weeks as homeowners build sandbag fortresses, pump water out of basements and frantically move belongings and valuables to higher ground. Karen McCrimmon, Public Safety Minister Ralph Goodale’s parliamentary secretary and the MP for an Ottawa riding that’s seen flooding twice in three years, made her perspective clear earlier this week when asked about the issue on Parliament Hill: climate change, she said, is causing “an increase to the cost of insurance” in Canada. Is she right?———APPEAL COURT TO RULE ON CARBON CHALLENGESaskatchewan’s Court of Appeal is to make the first ruling in Canada on whether a federally imposed carbon tax is constitutional. The Saskatchewan Party government filed a legal challenge of Ottawa’s levy that came into effect April 1 in provinces without a carbon price of their own. Over a two-day hearing in February, Saskatchewan argued that the question isn’t one of climate change, but rather the division of power. It argued a carbon tax is unconstitutional because it’s not applied evenly across the country and erodes the sovereignty of provincial jurisdiction.———FORD TO MEET WITH KENNEY AT ONTARIO LEGISLATUREPremier Doug Ford will meet with newly-elected Alberta Premier Jason Kenney at the Ontario legislature today. The Conservative premiers will meet for the first time since Kenney led his party to a majority government victory in Alberta’s provincial election last month. A statement from Ford’s office says the pair will discuss the federal carbon tax, pipelines and interprovincial trade.———DOCTORS ADVISED ON TREATING PATIENTS DURING RAMADANA Canadian psychiatrist is advising doctors to help address the needs of mentally ill Muslim patients whose medication regimen could be affected by fasting during the upcoming religious observance of Ramadan. Dr. Zainab Furqan, a psychiatry resident at the University of Toronto, said about a billion Muslims around the world participate in Ramadan each year but there’s little research about fasting among patients dependent on psychiatric drugs. She said physicians should consider the timing and dosing of medication for patients abstaining from food and water between sunrise and sunset during the annual month-long observance, which this year begins on Monday in Canada.———ALSO IN THE NEWS:— Defence Minister Harjit Sajjan marks the start of construction of the fourth Arctic and offshore patrol ship.— Students walkout of classes in Alberta to protest the new provincial government’s plan to change legislation about gay straight alliances.— TransCanada Corp. will hold its annual meeting, along with a live webcast at www.transcanada.com.— NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh and Nanaimo-Ladysmith byelection candidate Bob Chamberlin have coffee and discuss affordability.———The Canadian Presslast_img read more

David Geffen Establishes 100 Million Scholarship Fund

first_imgAssistance for such students is designed to draw more outstanding young people to the medical profession. The AAMC estimates that the nation will face a shortage of more than 90,000 physicians by 2020. Adding to the urgency is the aging U.S. population — approximately 10,000 people a day will turn 65 for the next two decades — and the estimated 32 million people who will be added to the ranks of the insured in 2014 as a result of the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, the federal health care law signed in 2010.UCLA’s medical school receives less than 10 percent of its funding from the state. The school relies on funding from research grants, patient care revenue and philanthropic donations to fulfill its four-part mission of research, education, community engagement and patient care.Each year, more than 7,500 candidates apply for the school’s 163 coveted first-year positions. The David Geffen Medical Scholarships will ensure significantly higher rates of acceptance and enrollment at UCLA among the nation’s most competitively recruited medical school applicants.Additionally, in the fall of 2016, the school will inaugurate its new medical education building, where students will benefit from learning in a state-of-the art, world-class facility.Over the course of his remarkable career, David Geffen has made an indelible mark on the fields of film, theater and, most notably, music, where he was responsible for creating the enormously successful record companies Asylum and Geffen Records. He also served for more than a decade as a principal partner in DreamWorks SKG, the multifaceted entertainment company he co-founded with Steven Spielberg and Jeffrey Katzenberg in 1994.Geffen was already a well-known philanthropist and patron of the arts and AIDS research when, in May 2002, he made a $200 million unrestricted donation to UCLA’s medical school, the largest single donation to a U.S. medical school in history at the time. Most recently, Geffen joined with Spielberg and Katzenberg, his partners in DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc., to each donate $30 million to the Motion Picture and Television Fund Foundation, a Hollywood charity that offers support to seniors and health services for members of the entertainment industry. Source:newsroom.ucla.edu Entertainment executive and philanthropist David Geffen has established an unprecedented $100 million scholarship fund that will cover the entire cost of education for the very best medical students attending the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA (DGSOM).The school was named in his honor after his $200 million unrestricted gift in 2002. With this recent gift, Geffen’s total philanthropic support to UCLA exceeds $300 million, making him the largest individual donor to UCLA and to any single UC campus.The David Geffen Medical Scholarship Fund, conceived by Geffen and announced Dec. 13 by Dr. A. Eugene Washington, vice chancellor for health sciences and dean of the medical school, ensures that DGSOM will have students who graduate from medical school debt-free, allowing them to pursue lifesaving research and patient care without the economic burdens that restrict the choices of many young physicians and scientists.“The cost of a world-class medical education should not deter our future innovators, doctors and scientists from the path they hope to pursue,” Geffen said. “We need the students at this world-class institution to be driven by determination and the desire to do their best work and not by the fear of crushing debt. I hope in doing this that others will be inspired to do the same.”“With this game-changing gift, Mr. Geffen has invested in the medical education and training of some of the world’s brightest and most talented young people, influencing medical research and patient care for generations to come,” said UCLA Chancellor Gene Block. “We are inspired by his vision and grateful for his generosity, which places UCLA’s David Geffen School of Medicine at the forefront in the competitive marketplace for top medical school applicants and enhances health care and biomedical research for generations.”“Once again, David Geffen has made a transformative gift — in this case, one that shifts how we think about support for our medical students,” Washington said. “The David Geffen Medical Scholarship Fund is an extraordinary investment in a public institution that will enhance UCLA’s ability to create world leaders in health and science. Recipients of this prestigious award will proudly carry the David Geffen Medical Scholar designation with them throughout their careers as they create an enduring legacy of excellence and impact in 21st-century patient care, medical education and research.”According to the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), 86 percent of medical school graduates had educational debt in 2012 — with an average debt of $170,000. Studies have shown that debt has a significant impact on what field medical school graduates pursue and where they develop their professional careers. Reducing that debt burden promises to allow talented students to make career decisions based on where their passions lie.The annual cost of tuition, fees and health insurance for a UCLA medical student in 2012–13 is approximately $38,000. When factoring in room and board, books and supplies, and other miscellaneous costs, the total tab is $67,000. With these costs continuing to rise, the projected four-year cost for students entering the school in 2013–14 is more than $300,000.The $100 million David Geffen Medical Scholarship Fund will provide four-year financial support — covering 100 percent of tuition, room and board, books and supplies, and other expenses — for up to 33 M.D. students (representing 20 percent of the available spots), starting with the entering class of 2013–14. Included in this group will be those students pursuing an eight-year M.D.–Ph.D. educational track as part of UCLA’s renowned Medical Scientist Training Program. All the David Geffen Medical Scholarships will be awarded based on merit.last_img read more

Should you be dumbing down your resume

Many Calgarians looking for work may feel they have too much experience on their resume.One consulting company suggests you take off some experience if it’s not applicable.Koula Vasilopolous is a district president for Robert Half International and says it’s probably a good idea to dust things off, and really focus on the specifics of the job you’re applying for.“Some people feel like ‘maybe my skills don’t apply to the job, so I’m going to simplify my resume’ and I would actually argue you really want to hone in on the skills you have that apply to the position itself,” Vasilopolous explained.She says that may mean taking things off and even make things more simple.“I would say, just make sure that you’ve got a variety of versions of your resume ready,” Vasilopolous explained. “Make sure that it’s clear, it’s concise, try to keep it to two pages.”“It’s just important that you really highlight some of the things you’re bringing to the table that can add value to the role and to the company.”Vasilopolous says also make sure there is something that makes your resume jump out from the rest of the applicants.“Everybody has something that can they add to a company in terms of their background experience. Just sometimes, you have to dig deep and so thinking about that and preparing your resume will help you really get considered more often.”She added that patience is key, and other industries besides the energy sector are looking for qualified employees.

Source: Dan Sheridan/INPHOHis tactical kicking was masterful last weekend as he used the familiar elements of the Sportsground to his advantage to manufacture spectacular distance on a couple of touch-finders.Defensively, Carty contributed importantly too. In the past, his tackling has been a weakness but this Connacht win saw the out-half making strip turnovers and preventing a near-certain Cheetahs try with an intelligent intercept of what would have been the scoring pass.Of course, none of this came as a surprise to those who have been watching Carty this season, with his confidence flowing to new heights under Connacht boss Andy Friend.Joe Schmidt has been among those observing Carty in detail and, with Joey Carbery’s hamstring injury opening the door, Schmidt is ready to hand the Athlone man his Ireland debut off the bench against Italy in Rome tomorrow.“It’s great to have new guys coming in all the time,” said stand-in Ireland skipper Peter O’Mahony after his side’s captain’s run at Stadio Olimpico.“Jack’s been playing incredibly well for Connacht and it’s important guys are ready to go because you see guys taking knocks, you need big strength in depth in squads.“He’s been playing incredibly well in Connacht.

Celebration of Victorias diversity

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Cultural diversity is something all Victorians seem to rejoice in.This week’s Cultural Diversity Week is the “biggest ever” says George Lekakis the chairman of the Victorian Multicultural Commission, (VMC) when talking to Neos Kosmos English Edition (NKEE). Mr Lekakis was enthused, “Cultural diversity is a big celebration this year we have a major multicultural festival Viva Victoria at Federation Square.” Multicultural festivals seemed unfashionable as Victorians became enmeshed with daily cultural diversity, there seems to be a re-emergence. Mr Lekakis puts it down to an “unprecedented demand, a huge call by communities and their artists to create an-awareness of what they have to offer which is vibrant and of quality.”He emphasised that Australia has undergone one of the “bigger explosions “ of migration in Australia since the post war period.“We have people in Victoria from over 230 different countries of origin, and they will be reflected by over 70 brilliant different acts” he emphasised.Mr Lekakis underscored the importance of the event, “This is a very inclusive festival with music, dance arts craft and design from over 60 different cultures that make up Victoria.”Some of the performers at Viva Victoria include; dancers direct from Thailand, Maori displays, Wadaiko Rindo Japanese drumming, Sudanese and Indian musicians, and even hip and shoulder grooving Bollywood and Bhangra Doll beats.Mr Lekakis pointed to the “funded activates in 50 school that are actively participating in the celebration of our diversity.”He underscores” there are 200 events funded by the Victorian Government and VMC and a great voluntary effort artists and community organisers.” For more information on events in Cultural Diversity Week and Viva Victoria go to www.culturaldiversity.vic.gov.aulast_img read more

Lowbirth Greece takes a further hit from crisis

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Sunk in recession for the past six years and struggling to steer its economy through painful austerity cuts, Greece now faces a fertility crisis as well. “Benefits have been cut, the cost of living has risen, wages are down and there is great uncertainty,” says Leonidas Papadopoulos, managing director of the Leto hospital and a veteran obstetrician. “Couples think twice nowadays, not only about a second child but even about their first. It looks like there will be 10,000 fewer births next year,” he adds, citing estimates drawn from state and private studies. According to state statistics agency Elstat, the fertility rate in Greece has fallen from 2.33 children per woman in 1975 to 1.4 in 2011. The replacement rate, the number of births at which the population remains stable, is 2.07 children. Papadopoulos also cites a recent study by the University of Athens which found that the rate of miscarriages has doubled to four percent in the last two years. And births have gone from 118,000 in 2008 to 101,000 last year, he notes. “At this rate, Greece will be much smaller in a few years,” Papadopoulos says. The European Union fertility leader is Ireland with 2.05 births in 2012, followed by France with 2.01 children. In one of its projected scenarios, Elstat sees the population of Greece dropping to 9.7 million in 2050 from 11.29 million in 2012. A jobless rate of over 27 per cent – and over 30 per cent among women – compounds the difficulty facing couples today. “Policies to protect maternity are easier to apply in good (economic) periods,” says a high-ranking state welfare official who declined to be named. “In the private sector, mothers very frequently do not make use of their rights because unemployment is very high,” the official added. In Greece, even for couples who are not in dire straits, supporting a large family is tough. “We cannot meet the needs of our three children and our parents are having to contribute from their pensions,” says Georgia Kitsaki, an unemployed hotel worker from Thessaloniki. Georgia and her husband Nikos, who is also unemployed after a labour accident, received a monthly jobless benefit of 470 euros until December, and child benefit of 276 euros. The latter has since been suspended. “In any case, this money is so little that it cannot even cover bread and milk for the children,” she adds. Source: AFP.last_img read more

Aldi increases minimum rates of pay for 8000 store assistants

first_imgSupermarket retailer Aldi has increased its minimum hourly rates of pay for 8,000 store assistants, paying a new wage of £9.10 an hour to UK-based staff, or £10.55 if employees are based at stores located inside the M25.The pay increases, which will be effective from 1 February 2019, are a result of Aldi’s sales in the UK and Ireland exceeding £12 billion in 2018.Further pay rises are planned for the future as part of this strategy; after three years, national employees will go on to earn £10.41 an hour, while London-based staff will see their pay increased to £10.89 an hour.Currently, Aldi store assistants in the UK earn £8.85 an hour, or £10.20 if they are based in London.The new minimum rates of pay exceed or match the voluntary living wage rates recommended by the Living Wage Foundation, which stand at £9 an hour for UK employees or £10.55 an hour for those working in London.Alongside the pay increases, Aldi has announced that it will also enhance its employer contribution to store assistants’ workplace pension.All of Aldi’s 34,000 workforce, based across 800 UK stores, will see their pay and benefits package increase from 1 February 2019.Giles Hurley, chief executive officer at Aldi UK, said: “Our store [employees] do a fantastic job every day, and the excellent service they provide to customers is a key reason why we are the UK’s fastest growing supermarket.“We’re committed to being the best supermarket employer in Britain, and this means rewarding our [employees] for the excellent job they do with market-leading rates of pay and opportunities to progress their career at Aldi.”last_img read more

Haines Assembly asks university to press pause on 400acre timber sale

first_imgThe proposed timber sale area on a map created by Haines Planner Holly Smith. (Image courtesy Haines Borough)The Haines Assembly is asking the University of Alaska to press pause on a proposed timber sale which has alarmed local residents.Listen nowA couple weeks ago, the university put 400 acres of its Chilkat Peninsula land up for bid.The timing of the sale was motivated by the threat of new local regulations.At a recent special meeting, Assembly chambers were filled with residents who live out Mud Bay Road, south of Haines.They were surprised that a timber sale of this this size could be allowed in their quiet neighborhood.“It seems unbelievably clear that the intention and all the ordinance and code around it is not to have this kind of resource extraction or commercial use of the land in this area,” Heidi Robichaud said.But that’s the problem that triggered this 400-acre proposal.Mud Bay zoning code does not explicitly allow or restrict resource extraction.Borough attorneys say the general rule in regulating private property is that unless something is explicitly prohibited, it’s allowed.Since discovering this apparent oversight a few months ago, the planning commission has brainstormed what restrictions, if any, to implement in Mud Bay code.“The public testimony by and large thought that small-scale resource extraction was fine, people selling a few trees or a few truckloads of trees to support local businesses was fine,” planning commission chair Rob Goldberg said. “People were generally opposed to large-scale resource extraction.”But as the commission moved toward regulations on resource extraction, the Alaska Mental Health Trust and University of Alaska objected.Both agencies own significant acreage in the Mud Bay area. And the university’s board of regents took action. The group put 400 acres of land up for timber sale.The university uses money from sales like this to fund student scholarships.A couple Haines residents, including Andrew Gray, spoke in support of the university’s right to profit off its land.“If you do attempt to restrict this, I want to remind you that it would be incredibly clear message to send to the state of Alaska when we are fighting for services, to deny one of the state agencies who is attempting to profit off an allowed use of their land,” Gray said. “I don’t think that bodes well in terms of us fighting for state services.”But Assembly members agreed with the concerns of Mud Bay residents – the timber harvest seems out of character with that area.Assemblywoman Heather Lende is one of several people who questioned whether the borough really needs explicit restrictions on resource extraction to prevent this type of sale.Lende pointed to other parts of code which indicate the Mud Bay service area is intended to prioritize residential over commercial uses.“An outside entity proposing a 400-acre timber sale, I don’t know how that fits in with the intent of rural residential,” Lende said.The Assembly wants to have a conversation with the university about all of this.The group voted unanimously to request an in-person meeting with both the university and the mental health trust. The Assembly also is asking the university to delay awarding a contract for the timber harvest until after this discussion occurs.The timeline right now is tight. The university is accepting comments and bids on the sale until Oct. 23.Assembly member Tom Morphet said there might be room for negotiation. He quoted from a letter written by university land manager Christine Klein.“‘UA advertised its Chilkat Peninsula Competitive Timber Sale to protect out interests because the Haines Borough Planning Commission was not engaging us,’” Morphet read. “To me that suggests that the university is maybe not a in a big rush to log out there, but put forward this sale to a certain extent to get our attention.”If the university doesn’t postpone the timber sale, the Assembly may consider legal action.The group met in executive session with the borough attorney for more than an hour to discuss the issue.Members did not say anything publicly about what they discussed with the lawyer.last_img read more

Campaign Encourages DC Kids to Put Best Foot Forward

first_imgAmeriHealth Caritas District of Columbia, a Medicaid provider, has fashioned an ongoing summer self-esteem workshop. It aims to help teens cope with local violence while encouraging them to live up to their potential. The “Best Me – The Blunt Truth on Violence and Prevention Summer Series” uses music, storytelling, video skits and development activities to encourage behavioral change among youth. High school students enrolled in the six-week program are from the Mayor Marion Barry Summer Youth Employment Program. The campaign attempts to foster a supportive environment for kids to discuss issues that affect them. Topics covered include eating better, safe sex, domestic violence, and resolving conflicts through words, not fists.“It removes barriers and it makes it personal,” said Lauren Reynolds, the AmeriHealth Caritas D.C. marketing and communications consultant who devised the campaign. “Whatever your personal best is, and that’s in terms of decisions that you make, things that you do, people that you hang with, always doing things that will allow you to be and exhibit your best.” Reynolds wanted to do something to help local teens heal from the threats they sometimes face at school and in their communities. The wheels started turning last spring after she saw a video skit in the Streetz Blunt Truth Tour, which travels from state to state to help high school and college students combat youth violence and crime through video, dialogue and live entertainment. DJ Young Music, a local 20-year-old radio host, runs the Streetz Stop The Violence Foundation, which produces the tour Reynolds saw at Friendship Heights Academy in Northwest D.C. DJ Young Music created the foundation and tour in response to the slaying of his friend – rapper Douglas “Swipey” Brooks, 18 – during an attempted robbery. Two District men were arrested in connection with the homicide in February, according to The Washington Post. When it came to the programming piece, Reynolds teamed up with Streetz Blunt Truth Tour, public health consulting firm Trident House International, and FOuR Youth, which works to instill hope and leadership skills in District teens and their support systems. Reynolds also brought in MindRight and AprilMay Company to offer mental health support for high school students. MindRight guides teens through their problems via text message, while AprilMay offers outpatient mental health services to children and families. AmeriHealth, meanwhile, ensures the resources are in place for the kids. On July 28, roughly 100 students and advisors met at Brookland Middle School to discuss video skits on safe sex and the dangers of domestic violence. They also addressed various types of abuse, including bullying, physical and emotional abuse. The students played a version of charades that focused on safe sex. They then took a pledge to, among other things, own their futures, fall in love with growth, stay committed to lifelong learning and never lose sight of their dreams.Lauren Mallard, 15, said the program has taught her to put her best foot forward and to become a better version of herself by asking for help with schoolwork and supporting her mother. “I’m trying to be that person [that would say if]  you want to do something, I’ll do it with you,” Mallard told the AFRO. “You can learn and do stuff together.”The July 28 event marked the second installment of the program. The first one took place with another set of District teens last month.

first_imgFrench fries and cheese curds topped with brown gravy: Sounds nauseating, huh?The Québécois dish, a favorite of our neighbors to the Great White North, has gained popularity around the world—particularly in the UK (where folks love to smother chips with thick sauce).So it’s no wonder that fast food chain KFC has assimilated the twisted recipe into its own menu.Customers in Lumberjack Country can buy poutine with a sprinkling of chicken on top. But if you’re craving the Canadian cuisine in Great Britain, there’s a hack for that.UK-based burger review site Burger Lad cooked-up a clever way to request the savory treat for less than £6.It’s as simple as asking for a regular popcorn chicken meal (£4.19 for barnyard balls, fries, and a drink), with a side of gravy (£1.19).The order, however, requires a certain finesse, according to Burger Lad.“Firstly, the fries and popcorn chicken will normally come separately in their own containers, neither of which lends itself to having gravy poured all over,” the site said. “What you do is ask for them to be put together in a Mighty Bucket.“The other important thing to remember is the cheese,” the Lad continued. “Ask for two slices of cheese to be added, ideally on top of the fries and under the chicken so it has a chance to melt a bit.”Then take the bizarre concoction back to your table to “quickly … start building poutine.”Assuming you’ve washed your hands first, tear the cheese into small pieces, mix the ingredients, and pour the gravy (preferably before it cools too much).“Mix that up again and give it a moment to melt the cheese, and voila, you’ve got (almost) poutine,” Burger Lad said.Most importantly: Ignore the odd looks from fellow customers too uncultured to understand why you’re dressing chicken, cheese, and chips with anything other than ketchup.While this hack appears to be picking up steam in the UK, there is no reason folks across the world can’t visit their local KFC for a DIY dish. There is certainly no harm in asking. Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

Godzilla anime film roars on to our screens in 2017

first_img <> 1/30Generated by IJG JPEG Library 1/30Generated by IJG JPEG Librarycenter_img All hail Godzilla, the most famous giant monster to ever grace the big screen. Hot on the heels of the new Shin Godzilla movie that TOHO released last month, a new anime film has just been announced, to be released to theaters next year.At the helm of the new film are directors Kobun Shizuno (Detective Conan films, Fist of the North Star: The Legend of Kenshirô, Fist of the North Star: The Legend of Toki) and Hiroyuki Seshita (Knights of Sidonia). Gen Urobuchi (Puella Magi Madoka Magica, Fate/Zero,Psycho-Pass) created the story concept and screenplay.Despite the many iterations of Godzilla on screen, only two animated versions of the famous giant exist with both being American productions. It’s more than overdue that Godzilla get animated by a Japanese studio. However, it looks like instead of traditional animation, we can look forward to a CG film set in a futuristic world if the teaser art is any indication. Additionally, it has been announced that the film will be produced at Polygon Pictures, a studio specializing in CG animation, so that’s a big tip off right there.Godzilla holds the title for the longest running movie franchise by the Guinness World Records, having started in 1954. At a staggering 29 films, the series shows no signs of stopping. Not only is TOHO committed to bringing us the continuing adventures of our lizard-esque pal, Legendary Pictures is also signed on to create more Godzilla films as part of their own franchise. Their second Godzilla film is scheduled for release in 2019, before a King Kong crossover arrives in 2020.The films can be divided into five categories spanning the evolution of the many-spiked beast. The Showa period films from 1954 to 1975 were all relatively lighthearted.Godzilla from the original 1954 film.Godzilla eventually becomes an antihero, protecting rather than just destroying. The introduction of several other TOHO monsters such as Mothra, Rodan, and Varan during this time became memorable allies and foes of Godzilla for years to come.The Heisei period films from 1984 to 1995 begin with a sequel to the original 1954 film, ignoring the other Godzilla movies between then. The films take a more serious turn during this time, with Godzilla returning to the giant evil monster as he was in the original.The Millennium period from 1999 to 2004 served as a reboot of the franchise by TOHO, starting with Godzilla 2000 and ending with Godzilla: Final Wars. After this movie, the studio announced they would not make another Godzilla movie for 10 years.The current period of Godzilla films is now split into two franchises: The American films, the most recent of which was the 2014 film by Legendary, and the TOHO reboot starting this year with Shin Godzilla.Despite the many iterations of Godzilla, it looks like there are still many more adventures for our familiar scaly friend to attend to in the future. Check out the evolution of Godzilla in our gallery below.last_img read more

Death of spouse ups irregular heartbeat risk

first_imgThe death of a spouse is linked to increased risk of developing an irregular heartbeat up to a year after the bereavement, says a study adding that the risk is prevalent among those below 60.The condition known as atrial fibrillation — itself a risk factor for stroke and heart failure — can also flare up in cases when the loss was least expected.According to Danish researchers, acute stress may directly disrupt normal heart rhythms and prompt the production of chemicals involved in inflammation. Also Read – ‘Playing Jojo was emotionally exhausting’“The elevated risk was especially high for those who were young and those who lost a relatively healthy partner,” said Simon Graff of Aarhus University in Denmark. The team collected information on 88,612 people newly diagnosed with atrial fibrillation and 886,120 healthy people.They looked at several factors that might influence atrial fibrillation risk which included time since the bereavement, age and sex, heart disease and diabetes, the health of the partner a month before death, and whether they were single. The results, published in the online journal Open Heart, indicated that the risk of developing an irregular heartbeat was 41 per cent higher among those who had been bereaved than it was among those who had not experienced such a loss. Also Read – Leslie doing new comedy special with NetflixThe risk seemed to be greater during eight to 14 days following a death, after which it gradually subsided until after a year the risk was similar to that of someone who had not been bereaved.The highest risk was seen among people under the age of 60: they were more than twice as likely to develop atrial fibrillation if they had been bereaved and the risk also seemed to be greater where the partner’s death had been unexpected.Those whose partners were relatively healthy in the month before death, were 57 per cent more likely to develop atrial fibrillation.last_img read more

Judge Naomi Reice Buchwald called him a “serial fraudster.”He admitted defrauding investors of $26 million in the 2017 music festival and over $100,000 in a fraudulent ticket-selling scheme after his arrest in the festival scam.Buchwald says McFarland deserved a long prison term because he disrespected the criminal justice system by lying to law enforcement agents when they learned about the ticket-selling business.Speaking in a courtroom packed with friends and family and at least one victim, McFarland apologized as family members cried behind him.He says he hit rock bottom and plans to become a better person.last_img read more
