Woman who gave water to pigs headed to slaughter found not guilty

first_imgMILTON, Ont. – A Toronto woman who gave water to pigs on a truck headed to an abattoir didn’t break the law since she didn’t harm the animals or prevent them from being slaughtered, an Ontario judge ruled Thursday as he found the activist not guilty of a mischief charge.Anita Krajnc also did not intend to hurt the pigs or mean to cause the slaughterhouse to reject them, Justice David Harris told a Milton, Ont., courtroom packed with animal activists.Court heard that on June 22, 2015, Krajnc was dumping liquid from a water bottle into a truck carrying pigs in Burlington, Ont., as the vehicle approached a slaughterhouse.Despite the Crown’s argument that Krajnc gave the pigs an “unknown substance,” potentially contaminating the food supply, there was no evidence she gave them anything but water or that the slaughterhouse was concerned about such a risk, Harris said.But the judge rejected a defence argument that Krajnc should be cleared because she was acting in the greater good, and suggested she may have been motivated in part by the prospect of drawing attention to her cause.“This may be the most ironic aspect of this case,” Harris said. “The fact that Ms. Krajnc gave water to a pig received little attention initially.”“Conversely, the act of prosecuting Ms. Krajnc has probably led to enough bad publicity for the pork industry that it might be said that the prosecution actually accomplished what they accused Ms. Krajnc of trying to do.”Cheers erupted in the courtroom as Krajnc, an activist with the group Toronto Pig Save, was acquitted on the charge of mischief laid in connection with the incident. She had pleaded not guilty, although she admitted to giving the pigs water.Outside court, Krajnc acknowledged that the case has bolstered her cause and said she hoped it would encourage others to stand up for animal rights.“This is how social movements get their word out, we go outside our comfort zone and we do what’s right,” she said.James Silver, one of Krajnc’s lawyers, said the court ruling “acknowledges that compassion is not a crime,” which he deemed an important victory.Her other lawyer, Gary Grill, nonetheless expressed some disappointment that the judge “missed the greater arguments…about Anita acting in the public good.”“Should the matter arise again, we’ll be ready to make that argument all over,” he said.A spokesman for a group representing farmers said he recognized Krajnc was trying to do the right thing but said the ruling was a letdown.Pat Jilesen, director of the Ontario Federation of Agriculture, said that for farmers, it was a matter of protecting food safety.Krajnc’s behaviour, no matter how well-intentioned, “puts not only the animals at risk, it puts people at risk,” he said.The Crown had argued that the pigs were the property of a farmer, and Krajnc was interfering with his property.In his decision, Harris said the activist had not interfered with anyone’s property.But he took issue with the defence equating Krajnc giving water to pigs with people giving water to Jews transported on cattle trains during the Holocaust, calling the comparison “offensive.”He also rejected comparisons to historic rights activists such as Gandhi, Nelson Mandela and Susan B. Anthony.Harris said that while it is legal for activists such as Krajnc to tout a meat-free lifestyle and put pressure on governments to change the law, “they must however do this within the confines of the law that currently exists.”Krajnc had testified that she was treating the pigs as she would want to be treated.The pigs’ owner, farmer Eric Van Boekel, testified that he complained to police because he was worried there were contaminants in the water, and that could lead the slaughterhouse to turn his hogs away.last_img read more

Ukraine agrees to enforce sentences imposed by UN war crimes tribunal

Anyone convicted by the International Criminal Tribunal for the former Yugoslavia (ICTY) and given a jail term can now serve that sentence in a Ukrainian prison after an agreement was signed in The Hague, where the Tribunal is based. Aside from Ukraine, Belgium, the United Kingdom, Italy, Finland, Norway, Sweden, Austria, France, Spain, Denmark and Germany have already entered into similar agreements with the ICTY. In a press statement issued in The Hague, the ICTY thanked Ukraine and the other UN Member States that have struck these enforcement of sentences agreements. 7 August 2007Ukraine today became the 12th European country to agree to enforce a sentence imposed by the United Nations war crimes tribunal that was set up to deal with the worst crimes committed during the Balkan wars in the 1990s. read more

Womens gymnastics Ohio State hoping to regain momentum on road meet against

Redshirt Freshman Amanda Huang preforms on beam against Iowa in St. John Arena on Jan. 21. Credit: Megan Russell | Lantern reporterNow sitting at No. 22 in the country after falling to the Iowa Hawkeyes in a close meet last Saturday, the Ohio State women’s gymnastics team plans to make several lineup changes for their meet on the road at Minnesota.The Buckeyes added an extra practice this week to focus on floor, an event that has seen lower average scores in the last two consecutive meets. Coach Carey Fagan is using the extra practices from this week to determine potential lineup changes in the coming meet in Minneapolis this Saturday.“We need to get better on floor,” Fagan said. “That’s really the event we’ve struggled on. We’re going to get three days of floor in before we leave for Minnesota.”Among the athletes being considered to compete for the Buckeyes on floor on Saturday is junior Taylor Harrison, who has been absent from the lineup due to a hip injury.“I think if she has a solid week of practice, we may put her in the floor lineup in Minnesota,” Fagan said. “She had a good practice this last week, and I’d like to give her a couple more days, but if she’s ready, that will be exciting. She’s historically a 9.85 every time she goes on an event, so that’s going to be a big boost.”The lineup for bars might also be altered against Minnesota. Freshman Amanda Huang has performed in the exhibition slot for the bar event in the last two meets and might be stepping up to the performance lineup.Even vault, an event where the Buckeyes have excelled in the last two meets, might be changed to improve the already strong lineup. Senior Tenille Funches might make an appearance after also performing in the exhibition slot in the last meet. Although no lineup is set in stone, Fagan said a meet on the road is the best time to implement them.“Each week we have a six-person lineup, and depending on who is prepared that week, they go in and compete for the team,” junior Alexis Mattern said.With 12 available athletes competing for limited spots, the Buckeye have more athletes to choose from for each different event.“I think that probably for the next four or five weeks, you’ll see some things mixing up,” Fagan said. “As we get towards senior meet, it will be pretty solid, and barring any injuries or illnesses, it will probably be set from that point on.” read more

NHS alert as fire chiefs warn 38 hospitals are as dangerous as

first_imgThe National Fire Chiefs Council said: “From a national perspective the primary focus has been on residential tower blocks with similar characteristics to Grenfell Tower. To date, 38 priority NHS sites have been identified with nine sites at greater risk.“This is due to these presenting the greatest risk when considering both cladding risk and the fire risk assessment.”A spokesperson from NHS Improvement said: “Fire safety should be an absolute priority for the NHS. That’s why we are checking with all NHS providers of care in England that they have identified any risks and are taking any action necessary – both in terms of cladding specifically, but also on fire risks more broadly.” Edinburgh Napier University is removing cladding from one of its halls of residence after it was found to be the same type said to have been used on Grenfell Tower.The university said the insulation behind the cladding on Bainfield Halls is fire proof and the building is fitted with sprinklers and alarms, but the cladding on around a quarter of the building is being removed as a precaution. Residents have not been evacuated. thousands of people across England are being urgently tested to check if their outer coverings pose a serious fire risk following the Grenfell Tower disaster, with nearly a dozen already testing positive for combustible material.

Thousands of people across England are being urgently tested to check if their outer coverings pose a serious fire risk following the Grenfell Tower disaster, with nearly a dozen already testing positive for combustible material.Credit:AFP It came as more than 17,000 care homes, private hospitals and hospices were ordered to carry out checks on the safety of their buildings. Up to 38 hospital sites may be as dangerous as Grenfell Tower, with nine identified as at greatest risk, fire chiefs have warned.The alert came as more than 17,000 care homes and private hospitals were ordered to undertake their own safety reviews, in the wake of the disaster.Theresa May has ordered a major national investigation into the use of potentially flammable cladding on high-rise towers across the country.It follows checks on cladding from residential tower blocks, with all 95 samples submitted by councils so far failing fire safety tests.The PM’s official spokesman said the investigation into the use of the substance may constitute a second phase of the public inquiry already announced into the west London blaze, which claimed the lives of at least 79 people earlier this month.NHS regulators last week ordered an audit of every hospital, amid concerns about wider use of the cladding.The National Fire Chiefs Council (NFCC) on Tuesday told The Telegraph that 38 NHS sites have now been found to have similar characteristics to those of Grenfell, with nine found to be at greatest risk. Bournemouth University has confirmed that similar cladding has been found on one of its student accommodation complexes, while Newcastle University has said a new building which is yet to open has been fitted with the same flammable cladding as Grenfell Tower. But the demand was met with chaos, as fire chiefs saying they could not cope with the volume of work on top of other efforts to protect public safety in the wake of Grenfell.Instead, they have now drawn up a list of the buildings which should undergo the most urgent checks, because of the nature of the risks which were found in the audit.Neither the council nor NHS Improvement – the watchdog which carried out the exercise – would name the sites or provide details of the findings. Sir David Behan, head of the Care Quality Commission, instructed the organisations to immediately review the fabric and size of all registered premises, after the Grenfell blaze.Five NHS trusts are currently subject to enforcement notices because they have been found to be failing basic fire standards. Other trusts have been warned that failure to properly “compartmentalise” areas could put patients at “intolerable risk” if fire broke out, Health Service Journal reported.Last year Cambridge University Hospitals foundation trust was warned over a lack of progress addressing the problem, with engineers warning: “The means of escape provisions are inadequate for the occupancy profile of the premises.” Over the weekend, Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt instructed every hospital with inpatients to undergo safety checks within 36 hours.last_img read more

Obama becomes the first US President to fire a marshmallow cannon

first_imgWho says being President of the United States is the most stressful job in the world? Judging by this clip from a White House science fair, the job looks like it’s a hoot. As President Obama was strolling around the floor, one particular exhibit caught his eye. Student inventor Joey Hudy’s project was a marshmallow shooter. That would be enough to draw anyone’s curiosity, and President Obama was no exception. The POTUS stopped in his tracks to see the eighth-grader’s “extreme marshmallow cannon” in action.After Hudy calmly (almost indifferently) explained to the President what his contraption is, Obama asked “can we demonstrate?” After herding journalists and attendees out of the way to clear a safe line of fire, Hudy began pumping away at the cannon.Though it was presented by Hudy as a marshmallow shooter, it’s really a simple air cannon. A series of PVC pipes are connected to a pressure valve, which provides the momentum to launch a projectile into the air. In this case, that happens to be a marshmallow.We won’t spoil it for you, but the cannon was successful enough to impress the President. After finishing with Hudy’d demonstration, he kept the student’s card, “just in case.”Of course politicians are always conscientious of the image they’re projecting, and there were many cameras focused on this event. Obama is eager to promote sciences among youth, and he personally asked journalists to give the winners of the White House Science Fair plenty of press. This made for a convenient clip to help do that.Whether it was partially contrived or not, though, I find it refreshing to see an exhausted-looking Obama cutting loose a bit in the name of promoting science and technology. Really, how stressed can one be when there’s a marshmallow cannon in the room?Those looking to create their own marshmallow cannon can read instructions here.via BoingBoinglast_img read more

PDM to reinstate Daylight Savings Time

first_img Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, TCI July 20, 2017 — Daylight Saving Time (DST) will be reinstated in the TCI with effect from April 2018. The announcement came from Cabinet this afternoon.The time change will take effect next in order to allow enough time to notify the public and all relevant local and international organizations. DST will be reintroduced in the winter months and Local Standard Time will be effective during the summer months. According to the Cabinet note, DST is being reintroduced following extensive public consultation. The note said also that the response to the proposed DST reinstatement was favourable. No evidence of the consultation has been provided, however, although at a public meeting in Provo last month some residents expressed interest in returning to DST.DST was abandoned in 2015 following a 2014 Cabinet decision. The removal was delayed in order to provide international carriers with sufficient time to adjust schedules.

House Committee Approves Record Funding for Waterways

first_imgOn Wednesday, the House Appropriations Committee approved, by unanimous voice vote, the FY2015 Energy and Water appropriations bill that funds the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers’ Civil Works program, with record-strong numbers reflecting the impact of policy changes made by the Water Resources Reform Development Act (WRRDA), which ASA strongly supported.The bill funds the Corps of Engineers’ Civil Works program at $5.4 billion, which is $25 million above FY14 and $959 million above the President’s budget request.In the Construction account, the Committee provided $112 million in additional funding for Inland Waterways Trust Fund (IWTF) projects, plus $85.5 million in undesignated navigation project money reflecting the funding increases from the Harbor Maintenance Trust Fund. The bill’s overall funding level for the Construction account was $1.7 billion, $48.5 million above FY14, and $579.5 million above the Administration’s requested level.In the Operations and Maintenance (O&M) account, of the $303.4 million in additional funding provided, $45 million is for inland waterways, $150.5 million is for deep-draft harbors and channels, $42.5 million is for small/remote/subsistence projects, and $25.4 million is undesignated. This is the highest O&M funding level to date.  The bill’s overall funding level for the O&M account is $2.9 billion, $44 million above FY14 and $305 million above the Administration’s request.On the Senate side, however, the Appropriations Committee postponed their scheduled markup of the Energy and Water Appropriations bill, amid controversy over potential amendments related to climate change and Clean Water Act issues. No new mark-up date or plan has been announced as of yet. The House and Senate must pass the FY15 appropriations bills or an extension of FY14 spending by the end of the fiscal year (Oct. 1) to avoid a shutdown.last_img read more

EXCLUSIVE 56 cite uncertainty around how best to access pension benefits as

first_imgEXCLUSIVE: More than half (56%) of employer respondents believe uncertainty about how to make the best decisions when accessing pension benefits is an area of concern for employees, according to research by Employee Benefits and Close Brothers.While this continues to top the list of retirement concerns affecting respondents’ workforces, it has fallen slightly since 2014, when 60% of respondents cited uncertainty about how to make the best decisions as a key concern.The Employee Benefits/Close Brothers Pensions research 2016, which surveyed 250 employer respondents, also found that the percentage of respondents that identify employee uncertainty about what to do with their pension savings has also fallen, dropping to 41% in 2016 from 52% in 2014.Similarly, a fifth (20%) see uncertainty about how to save for retirement as a cause for concern among staff, compared to more than a quarter (26%) in 2014. It may be that employers’ efforts to communicate and educate staff about pension saving following the introduction of the pension flexibilities in April 2015, in addition to increased pensions media coverage around the reforms, has helped to enhance employees’ awareness about their options.Despite this, there has been little improvement in the level of concern about financial security in retirement, with 52% of respondents citing this as a worry in 2014 and 53% doing so in 2016. This could perhaps be indicative of the wider economic and political uncertainty currently facing employers and employees.

The Oldest Weapons Ever Used by Humans in North America Found in

first_imgSpear points discovered at the Buttermilk Creek archaeological site in Texas have made archaeologists question their assumptions on when humans migrated to North America. The weapons are dated to between 13,500 and 15,500 years ago and are believed to be the oldest ever found in what is now the United States.Researchers at Texas A&M found the spear points, which are about three to four inches long, about 40 miles northwest of Austin.The weapons could have been used to hunt mastodons and mammoths.Photo courtesy Texas A&M UniversityWhat is causing a stir is the weapons were found in layers beneath Clovis spear points, and the Clovis were believed to be the first humans to come to North America. Now scientists say that may no longer necessarily be the case.“There is no doubt these weapons were used for hunting game in the area at that time,” said Michael Waters, distinguished professor of anthropology and director of the Center for the Study of the First Americans at Texas A&M.The discovery is significant because almost all pre-Clovis sites have stone tools, but spear points have yet to be found.Clovis points from the Rummells-Maske Cache Site, Iowa. Photo by Billwhittaker CC BY-SA 3.0“These points were found under a layer with Clovis and Folsom projectile points. Clovis is dated to 13,000 to 12,700 years ago and Folsom after that. The dream has always been to find diagnostic artifacts – such as projectile points – that can be recognized as older than Clovis and this is what we have at the Friedkin site.”The spear points were discovered under several feet of sediment.A Clovis projectile point created using bifacial percussion flaking (that is, each face is flaked on both edges alternately with a percussor). Photo by Locutus BorgThe Clovis people invented the “Clovis point,” a spear-shaped weapon made of stone that is found in Texas and other parts of the United States and northern Mexico.These weapons were made to hunt animals, including mammoths and mastodons, from 13,000 to 12,700 years ago, according to Science Daily.How and when the first people arrived in North America is debated. It is thought people migrated across the Bering Land Bridge, which once linked Siberia and Canada, around 20,000 years ago. Scientists believed the first Americans made it south of the continental ice sheets about 16,000 years ago and slowly spread out.Restoration of an American mastodon. Photo by Sergiodlarosa CC BY-SA 3.0Waters and his team are creating an environmental background so they can reconstruct the climate and vegetation in the region for the last 20,000 years. The hope is to build a picture of the first Americans.“Right now we are in a time of new discoveries and new ideas about the first Americans,” Waters told Newsweek. “It will take a lot of time, but eventually more sites will be found, excavated, and studied. Also, more genetic information will come from the analysis of ancient human remains. The two lines of evidence—archaeological and genetic—are beginning to converge and tell a coherent story of the first Americans.”The team made their discovery at the Debra L. Friedkin site, named for the family who owns the land, about 40 miles northwest of Austin in Central Texas. The site has undergone extensive archaeological work for the past 12 years.Map of the Americas showing pre-Clovis sites. Photo by Pratyeka CC BY-SA 4.0“The findings expand our understanding of the earliest people to explore and settle North America,” Waters said.“The peopling of the Americas during the end of the last Ice Age was a complex process and this complexity is seen in their genetic record. Now we are starting to see this complexity mirrored in the archaeological record.”The Clovis won their name because of artifacts found near Clovis, New Mexico, in 1932. Other evidence included a mammoth skeleton with a spear-point in its ribs, found by a cowboy in 1926 near Folsom, New Mexico. Clovis sites have since been identified throughout the United States, as well as Mexico and Central America.Read another story from us: 8,000-yr-old Dishes Reveal Surprisingly Varied Neolithic Eating HabitsThe Clovis people were generally regarded as the first human inhabitants of the New World, and ancestors of all the indigenous cultures of North and South America.last_img read more

The technology is based on Mirada Medical’s deformable registration software, which is widely regarded as best in class when aligning image data for RT planning.“In the era of advanced radiation therapy, contouring organs at risk and targets requires an environment and tools that facilitate productivity and accuracy through efficient automated and manual tools and intuitive user interface,” explained  András Szentmiklóssy, global product manager, Oncology at GE Healthcare. “Our goal is to harness the potential productivity improvements and registration accuracy provided by the Mirada Medical atlas-based contouring engine to enhance the benefits of AdvantageSim MD 9 to customers,” Szentmiklóssy concluded.Mirada Medical has been recognized for its leadership in the development of image fusion and deformable registration for more than a decade. The company’s algorithms are modality specific and yield fast, highly accurate results that are the foundation to their suite of high-level RT analysis and planning software tools. Mirada’s zero-click auto contouring uses an atlas, atlases or previously contoured case to improve both productivity and accuracy.“It takes only seconds to get an initial set of contours when using an atlas or previously contoured case for greater efficiency compared to manual contouring. These can be checked and quickly refined prior to exporting to the treatment planning system, stated Timor Kadir, chief science and technology officer for Mirada Medical. “Another benefit of auto contouring is greater consistency between operators,” added Kadir.Mirada Medical and GE Healthcare will be demonstrating automatic atlas-based contouring at the annual American Society for Radiation Oncology meeting being held this year at the Georgia World Congress Center in Atlanta, Ga., Sept.22-25.For more information: www.mirada-medical.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Image courtesy of Philips Healthcare Feature | August 05, 2019 | Dave Fornell, Editor Most Popular Radiology and Radiotherapy Topics in July 2019 August 5, 2019 — Here is the list of the most popular content on the Imaging Technology New (ITN) magazine website fr read more Videos | Artificial Intelligence | July 22, 2019 VIDEO: Use of Machine Learning to Automate Radiotherapy Treatment Planning Leigh Conroy, Ph.D., physics resident, Universi read more Technology | Treatment Planning | July 02, 2019 RaySearch Releases Version 9A of RayStation Treatment Planning System RaySearch announced the release of RayStation 9A, the latest version of its radiation therapy treatment planning system… read more Technology | Information Technology | June 20, 2019 DOSIsoft Receives FDA 510(k) Clearance for Planet Onco Dose Software DOSIsoft announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market Planet… read more Related Content News | Radiation Therapy | August 02, 2019 Varian Showcases Cancer Care Systems and Software at AAPM 2019 Varian showcased systems and software from its cancer care portfolio, including the Identify Guidance System, at the… read more Technology | September 25, 2013 GE Healthcare Adopts Mirada Medical’s Atlas-based Contouring for Advanced RT Planning Software Technology | Quality Assurance (QA) | July 10, 2019 IBA Launches Monte Carlo Patient QA for Varian Halcyon at AAPM 2019 IBA announced the launch of the latest functionality of the SciMoCa Monte Carlo Patient QA solution at the 61st annual… read more Feature | Treatment Planning | July 01, 2019 | By Jeff Zagoudis New Treatment Planning System Technologies Treatment planning systems (TPS)… read more Video Player is loading.Princess Margaret Cancer Center uses machine learning to create automated treatment plansPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 3:22Loaded: 4.83%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -3:22 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

NeuVector announces new container risk reports for vulnerability exploits external attacks and

first_imgNeuVector, a firm that deals with container network security, yesterday, announced new capabilities to help container security teams better assess the security posture of their deployed services in production. NeuVector now delivers an intelligent assessment of the risk of east-west attacks, ingress and egress connections, and damaging vulnerability exploits. An overall risk score summarizes all available risk factors and provides advice on how to lower the threat of attack – thus improving the score. The service connection risk score shows how likely it is for attackers to move laterally (east-west) to probe containers that are not segmented by the NeuVector firewall rules. The ingress/egress risk score shows the risk of external attacks or outbound connections commonly used for data stealing or connecting to C&C (command and control) servers. In an email written to us, Gary Duan, CTO of NeuVector said, “The NeuVector container security solution spans the entire pipeline – from build to ship to run. Because of this, we are able to present an overall analysis of the risk of attack for containers during run-time. But not only can we help assess and reduce risk, we can actually take automated actions such as blocking network attacks, quarantining suspicious containers, and capturing container and network forensics.” With the RedHat OpenShift integration, individual users can review the risk scores and security posture for the containers within their assigned projects. They are able to see the impact of their improvements to security configurations and protections as they lower risk scores and remove potential vulnerabilities.

Fei Huang, CEO of NeuVector said, “We are seeing many business-critical container deployments using Red Hat OpenShift. These customers turn to NeuVector to provide complete run-time protection for in-depth defense – with the combination of container process and file system monitoring, as well as the industry’s only true layer-7 container firewall.” To know about this announcement in detail visit the official website.
