Health and safety awareness training now mandatory for all Brock staff

As a result of new health and safety legislation that comes into effect July 1, 2014, employers are now required to ensure all workers complete an occupational health and safety awareness training program.This training is now mandatory for all Brock employees (faculty, staff and student employees), including both existing and new employees.“This Regulation was introduced as a result of a provincial expert advisory panel on occupational health and safety,” says Leigh Harold, Brock’s director of Health, Safety & Wellness. “The panel was struck following the deaths of four workers who fell from a scaffold in Toronto on Christmas Eve 2009.”Health, Safety & Wellness at Brock currently delivers a two-hour “Need to Know” training session, as well as a one-hour new employee orientation session as part of the University’s Human Resources on-boarding program. These sessions have now been rolled into one new training program to ensure compliance with the new regulations.Training for the Brock community will largely be delivered through an online module. Departments can also request an in-class training session by Health, Safety & Wellness staff via email at besafe@brocku.caSupervisors must ensure that all employees under their responsibility complete this training as soon as possible.The online training program is available at brocku.ca/hr-ehs/environment-health-safetyEmployees can also access the training program on Isaak – Brock’s Sakai-based learning management system website at https://lms.brocku.caIsaak/Sakai uses the same account and password as the my.brocku.ca online portal.Employees are required to print the page when you select the “Submit for Grading” button after completing the quiz and provide it to your supervisor.If you experience difficulties accessing the training program or have any questions, contact Brock Health, Safety & Wellness at x5994 or x3123. read more

Ikea accusé de destruction despèces végétales et animales

first_imgIkea accusé de destruction d’espèces végétales et animalesFos-sur-Mer, France – Mardi, Ikea comparaissait devant le tribunal correctionnel d’Aix-en-Provence pour destruction d’espèces protégées. Une amende de 30.000 euros a été requise contre le géant suédois.Plusieurs associations de protection de l’environnement ont porté plainte contre Ikea France suite à la construction d’une plate-forme logistique sur un terrain du port de Marseille situé à Fos-sur-Mer dans les Bouches-du-Rhône. Le géant de l’ameublement est accusé d’avoir détruit, à cause de ce projet, des spécimens d’espèces protégées végétales et animales telles que le lézard ocellé, la couleuvre de Montpellier, le bouton-d’or, le héron cendré ou encore le psammodrome d’Edwards.Ikea avait obtenu un avis favorable du Conseil national de la protection de la nature (CNPN) pour la construction de sa plate-forme. Toutefois, cet avis ne concernait que des espèces d’orchidées, le groupe s’étant engagé à compenser leur destruction via différentes mesures.En 2008, lorsque les travaux de défrichement ont commencé, un agent de l’Office national de la chasse et de la faune sauvage a constaté la destruction d’autres espèces, aussi bien des fleurs que des oiseaux et des reptiles.”A partir du moment où l’on avait l’accord du CNPN et l’autorisation de défricher et d’exploiter, on pensait que c’était suffisant. Les autres espèces, on nous les a signalées après le début des travaux, et revenir en arrière était impossible” s’est défendu Jean-Louis Baillot, le patron d’Ikea Développement.Le procureur qui a requis une amende de 30.000 euros a rétorqué que “c’était à Ikea de démontrer qu’il n’y avait pas d’espèces protégées sur le site”. C’est le 27 mai prochain que le jugement devrait être rendu.Le 2 avril 2010 à 14:40 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Marée noire BP tente de colmater le puits

first_imgMarée noire : BP tente de colmater le puitsÉtats-Unis – Après avoir reconnu que trois signaux annonciateurs d’un problème sur la plateforme pétrolière n’avaient pas été pris en compte moins d’une heure avant l’explosion de cette dernière (voir article), BP tente de rattraper le coup. L’opération “top kill” a été mise en œuvre hier. Son le but est de colmater la fuite par laquelle des dizaines de milliers de litres de pétrole s’échappent toujours quotidiennement. Mercredi, BP a commencé l’opération de colmatage du puits de pétrole responsable du déversement de plusieurs dizaines de milliers de litres de brut dans le golfe du Mexique chaque jour. Les chances de réussite de l’opération “top kill” sont de l’ordre de 60 à 70% selon les estimations de Kent Wells, l’un des vice-présidents de BP.Il s’agira d’injecter dans deux conduits menant à la valve anti-explosion un mélange d’eau, de matières solides et de baryte à une très haute pression. Si la pression est assez élevée, “le mélange devrait pouvoir forcer le pétrole à se replier dans le gisement et à l’immobiliser” et du ciment sera injecté pour sceller la fuite.Cette opération représente un gros risque. La pression, extrêmement importante, pourrait causer des dommages au gisement et à la valve anti-explosion. Dans ce cas, la fuite deviendrait encore plus dramatique qu’à l’heure actuelle.

first_imgYouTube à nouveau bloqué en TurquieAprès la fin de trois ans de censure, le site de partage vidéo est encore une fois interdit d’accès en Turquie.Depuis 2007, les Turcs n’avaient plus accès au site YouTube. En cause ? La diffusion à ce moment-là de vidéos jugées insultantes, par les autorités, pour le fondateur de la Turquie moderne, Mustafa Kemal Atatürk.Il y a à peine quelques jours, cette interdiction avait pris fin suite à une décision de justice. Pourtant, un autre tribunal a décidé hier d’interdire à nouveau l’accès à YouTube, à cause d’une nouvelle vidéo compromettante.Celle-ci avait filmé clandestinement l’ancien chef de l’opposition turque, Deniz Baykal, dans une chambre en compagnie d’une autre femme que la sienne.

Renting a game on PlayStation Now will cost between 299 and 1999

first_imgAs we reported last night, Sony is set to roll out its PlayStation Now service as an open beta in North America on July 31. We’re expecting 100 games to be available to stream, taken from the huge library of PlayStation, PlayStation 2, and PlayStation 3 titles.We don’t know what games will be available to play yet, but we do know how much they will cost to rent now. It seems Sony isn’t going to offer a service subscription option just yet, but each game will require a payment of between $2.99 and $19.99.So how is Sony deciding on price for each title? That’s a good question and one the company has yet to answer so we’ll have to take an educated guess. It seems likely the price point will come down to two variables: the age of the game and the length of the rental period. So a PSOne game will cost less than a PS2 or PS3 game, but the price will also vary depending on whether you want to rent for a day, a week, or a month.I’d imagine if you wanted to rent a PS3 title like The Last of Us for a month you’d pay the full $19.99. Where as if you wanted a PSOne game like Ape Escape for the same period it could be half that. And yes, that does sound expensive, which is why subscriptions are likely to become a popular option when Sony introduces them. If you can pay the same price as a PS Plus annual subscription and get access to a set number of games a month, it will be worth signing up.How well PlayStation Now fairs with gamers will ultimately come down to the price of the service. $19.99 sounds very steep if it just gets you a game for a month, but that may be the price for a year. Everything will hopefully be revealed at the end of July, and no doubt if there’s uproar Sony can easily adjust pricing, roll out subscriptions quickly, or offer a few worthwhile incentives.last_img read more

LinkedIn Sees Mobile Growth Amid Acquisitions New Apps

first_img LinkedIn has had a busy 2013, with two recent acquisitions, major updates to its mobile apps and the launch of a brand-new standalone app called Contacts.According to Joff Redfern, head of mobile products at LinkedIn, the company is expanding far beyond its former identity as an online networking and job hunting resource to become a one-stop shop for professionals who need news, expert insight, productivity tools and more. Since the launch of LinkedIn’s new apps in April, it has seen a significant upswing in user engagement, experiencing an increase of more than 40 percent in likes and comments per user.Mobile is a crucial part of the company’s growth. Fully 30 percent of LinkedIn’s unique users now access the platform through mobile apps, compared to 19 percent a year ago. What’s more, nearly 30 percent of job views were coming from mobile devices as of the fourth quarter of 2012. People are now using LinkedIn at every time of day, starting with their morning coffee and continuing on the couch at night. LinkedIn needs to cater to these ’round-the-clock users with productivity tools and useful content “to help them be more informed and make smarter decisions about their work and career,” Redfern says.To that end, LinkedIn released last month the first major new versions of its iOS and Android apps in almost two years. Among other new features, the apps offer an improved content stream that features updates from your network, news articles and posts from influential LinkedIn contributors such as billionaire entrepreneur Richard Branson. The goal, says Julie Inouye, LinkedIn’s communications director, is to “make sure the stuff relevant to you is bubbling up to the top.”Related: 3 Ways to Use LinkedIn to Grow Your StartupIn addition to its namesake apps, LinkedIn has developed or acquired other standalone mobile apps. LinkedIn plans to cultivate a small number of apps for specific demographics and uses rather than “creating a jumbo sized app that tries to do it all,” Redfern says.In April, LinkedIn acquired Pulse, a news-reading app. The Pulse team is already embedded in LinkedIn’s Mountain View, Calif. headquarters, says Inouye, and the fruits of their integration are becoming apparent. Following the sale to LinkedIn, Pulse updated its app so that users could easily share content from Pulse to LinkedIn. A new Pulse channel, Influencers, was created and tied to LinkedIn’s Influencers platform, so that Richard Branson, Jack Welch and other figures who write for LinkedIn can now be followed on Pulse.Pulse will continue to be supported as a standalone app. Also in April, LinkedIn launched an app of its own, Contacts. Redfern says the idea was to create an app that feels like a personal assistant. It brings together all your calendars, email accounts and address books, keeps them updated and reminds you of important dates like a colleague’s work anniversary. It even tells you “what you have in common with the people you are meeting each day,” says Redfern.Contacts is designed for a specific kind of LinkedIn power user, whom Redfern describes as “professionals who are on the go and always meeting with new people as part of their jobs.” As such, it illustrates LinkedIn’s willingness to spin off apps to serve particular segments of its user base.Another recent LinkedIn acquisition is Maybe, a social polling startup founded last summer. Except for the founder, the Maybe team — four engineers and one designer — is now working in LinkedIn’s mobile division. Although LinkedIn would not say just how it is putting Maybe’s talent and technology to use, their addition to the company can only strengthen its grip on mobile.Indeed, the Contacts launch was the first time a LinkedIn product launched for mobile at the same time as desktop, and it indicates a new company-wide outlook. “Every product person at the company is now thinking about mobile opportunities,” says Inouye.Related: Going Mobile: Does Your Business Need an App?

Banner Good Samaritan is using Toshiba’s Vantage Titan MR primarily for imaging breast cancer patients from the Laura Dreier Breast Center during screening and surgical planning.The Vantage Titan offers a 71 cm open bore and allows feet-first imaging for most exams to help reduce claustrophobia. Toshiba’s Pianissimo noise-reduction technology reduces exam noise levels by up to 30 decibels, addressing one of the major compliance issues in MR.Banner Good Samaritan is also utilizing two of Toshiba’s proprietary non-contrast MRA techniques, fresh blood imaging (FBI) and time space angiography (TSA), to image patients near or at renal failure without the use of potentially dangerous contrast agents. Additionally, the system is used to help guide physicians in the planning of liver transplants, general musculoskeletal imaging and many other clinical applications.Toshiba has a long-standing partnership with the Banner Health network, which includes two other Vantage Titan MR systems located at Banner Ironwood Medical Center in San Tan Valley, Ariz., and Skyline Center for Health in Loveland, Colo. Other Toshiba medical imaging systems in the network include four Aquilion CT systems and four Infinix-i vascular X-ray systems.“Partnering with Banner Good Samaritan demonstrates the versatility of the Vantage Titan in helping diagnose a variety of conditions while making the exam experience more comfortable and safer for patients,” said Stuart Clarkson, director, MR business unit, Toshiba. “We also plan to work together with Banner Good Samaritan in the future to explore and develop advanced non-contrast breast imaging techniques.”For more information: www.medical.toshiba.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Contrast Media | July 15, 2019 FDA Approves Bayer’s Gadavist Contrast for Cardiac MRI in Adult Coronary Artery Disease Patients The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Gadavist injection for use in cardiac magnetic resonance… read more News | Focused Ultrasound Therapy | July 10, 2019 Insightec’s Exablate Neuro Approved With GE Signa Premier MRI in U.S. and Europe GE Healthcare and Insightec announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval and CE mark for Insightec’s… read more Two brain metastases from primary lung cancer are contrast enhanced in the brain of a 61-year-old male.

Radiation Therapy Cuts Low Risk of Recurrence in Half for Patients With

first_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Image courtesy of BarcoA subset of patients with low-risk breast cancer is highly unlikely to see cancer return following breast conservation surgery but can lower that risk even further with radiation therapy, finds a new long-term clinical trial report. These 12-year follow-up data from the only prospective, randomized trial to compare recurrence outcomes after treatment for low-risk ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) was presented on Oct. 21 at the 60th Annual Meeting of the American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO).In this long-term update, patients with “good risk” DCIS — defined by the research team as cancer found only on mammogram or incidentally during a breast biopsy for another reason — continued to experience extremely low recurrence 12 years after breast conservation surgery. Those who underwent whole breast radiation therapy (WBRT) and those who also opted to take tamoxifen experienced the lowest recurrence rates, but even those who received no further treatment following surgery did not experience any life-threatening consequences.“I think the most surprising thing was that the recurrence rate in patients randomized to receive radiation therapy was so low. Radiation reduced recurrence by half, and this was a much more profound impact than we expected,” said Beryl McCormick, M.D., FASTRO, lead investigator of the NRG Oncology/RTOG multi-center trial, Chief of the External Beam Radiotherapy Service at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and a professor of radiation oncology at Cornell University in New York.Since none of the tumors that recurred in either group appeared to pose a life-threatening risk, however, McCormick said it was reasonable for patients to determine, in consultation with their physician, whether continued treatment following surgery was something they wanted to do.“Not all DCIS is the same,” said McCormick. “This type of cancer will not impact life expectancy. We found that radiation does significantly reduce the risk for recurrence, but you are starting with an extremely low recurrence rate even without radiation. Therefore, there should be a meaningful discussion between patient and doctor about whether additional treatment is something the patient wishes to pursue.”DCIS is a cancer of the cells that line the milk ducts of the breast. It accounts for roughly one-fourth of all new breast cancers for an estimated 60,000 cases diagnosed in the United States each year. The current standard of care for DCIS includes lumpectomy to remove the tumor in combination with radiation therapy to reduce the likelihood that the cancer will return.Eligible tumors were 2.5 centimeters (cm) or smaller, with margins of three millimeters or less, and of low or intermediate nuclear grade. From 1999 to 2006, 636 patients were randomly assigned to receive WBRT with standard doses or to an observation arm. The use of tamoxifen for five years was optional. Initial results, including seven years of follow-up, were reported in 2013 and published in the Journal of Clinical Oncology in 2015.The new analyses include long-term follow-up data for 629 patients whose median age was 58 years, including 76 percent post-menopausal women. Mean pathological tumor size was 0.60 centimeters (61 percent 0.5 cm or smaller, 65 percent with a margin width of 1.0 cm or larger or a completely negative re-excision specimen). The highest nuclear tumor grade was 1, found in 44 percent of patients; grade-2 tumors were diagnosed in the remaining 56 percent. Tamoxifen was used by 58 percent of patients on the WBRT arm and 65 percent of those on the observation arm (p=0.05).Median follow-up time was 12.4 years. After 12 years, the cumulative incidence of local recurrence was 2.8 percent (95% CI 1.1, 5.6) for those in the WBRT arm and 11.4 percent (7.7, 15.8) for those in the observation arm (hazard ratio (HR) 0.26, 95% CI 0.13, 0.54; p=0.0001). The 12-year cumulative incidence of invasive local recurrence was 1.5 percent (95% CI 0.4, 4.0) for those in the WBRT arm and 5.8 percent (3.2, 9.5) for those who did not receive radiation (HR 0.34, 95% CI 0.14, 0.85; p=0.016).In multivariate analysis, only those who received both WBRT (HR 0.25, 95% CI 0.12, 0.53; p=0.0003) and tamoxifen (HR 0.50, 95% CI 0.27, 0.91; p=0.024) experienced reduced local recurrence. Neither age nor pathological tumor size were significant for predicting local recurrence or invasive local recurrence. There were no significant differences between treatment arms for overall survival, disease-free survival or mastectomy use.During the additional five years following surgery, noted McCormick, “there was a slight creeping up of local recurrence rate.” For those who received WBRT, the rate increased by just under 1 percent, bringing it to nearly 3 percent post-surgery. For those who did not receive radiation, the recurrence rate increased by one percentage point each additional year of follow-up, climbing from just under 7 percent to just under 12 percent after 12 years.These results “should inform a meaningful patient-physician discussion that includes risks, benefits and the patient’s own degree of comfort,” McCormick concluded.“All of us have a different definition of what is an acceptable risk,” she said. “Some patients with DCIS will still want radiation therapy. But for others, the risk is so low they may opt not to treat, and that should be considered a viable option.”The abstract, “Randomized trial evaluating radiation following surgical excision for “good risk” DCIS: 12-Year report from NRG/RTOG 9804,” will be presented in detail during a news briefing and the clinical trials session at ASTRO’s 60th Annual Meeting in San Antonio.For more information: www.astro.orgRead more about the Late-breaking Radiation Therapy Clinical Trials at ASTRO 2018.
