Rare arterial switch surgery saves life of infant in city

first_imgKolkata: A rare arterial switch surgery has given a fresh lease of life to a month-old baby who was brought to a city hospital from Jharkhand’s Dhanbad. The patient was in critical condition when his family members brought him to the private hospital in Kolkata. The 38-day-old boy was taken to a local doctor who told the family members that there was nothing seriously wrong with the patient. However, as his condition deteriorated, the family members decided to shift the baby to Kolkata.

After primary investigation, Dr Mandal and his team put the baby under ventilation. Soon, he started the baby with prostaglandin infusion to stabilise his condition. The baby was diagnosed with transposition of great arteries with small patent ductus arteriosus. The doctors performed the arterial switch procedure on the patient, to correct transposition of the great arteries.

An accurate anatomical diagnosis was done by echocardiography to get a clear picture of his condition. A thorough screening of comorbidity factors like infection, poor nutrition, deranged liver and kidney function and abnormal neurological condition helped Dr Mandal to take the correct medical decision. This was an extremely critical case for the doctors as the mother had lost her babies in two previous occasions. Dr Mandal, senior consultant, Department of Pediatric Cardiology, who carried out the operation, said: “Such a rare defect happens to 1 in 3,300 newborn infants. Success rate in these cases is less. In the Western world, we have only 3% mortality, while developing world stands at 15%. It was a difficult decision for us to carry out the operation. We went ahead and successfully switched the great arteries to their natural position and transferred the coronary artery without any damage during the 190 minutes long procedure and cross clamp time of total 85mins.”last_img read more

Humboldt Broncos to return to the ice for 201819 junior hockey season

first_imgHUMBOLDT, Sask. – The Humboldt Broncos hockey club says a team will be ready to hit the ice in time for the 2018-19 Saskatchewan Junior Hockey League season.The club said in a news release Friday that it’s recruiting a head coach and general manager to replace Darcy Haugan.Haugan was one of 16 people killed April 6 when the team’s bus and a semi-trailer collided in rural Saskatchewan. Thirteen players were injured.“Darcy Haugan was selfless, inspirational and motivating, building up his players to be great ambassadors and role models both on the ice and in the community,” said team president Kevin Garinger.“He took our team to new heights. It will be incredibly difficult to find someone that can rise to his standards.”As the team recruits the next coach, 80 prospective players will be asked to an invite-only camp from May 25 to May 27 in Saskatoon. It’s not clear whether any of the injured players will return to the team for the upcoming season.The Broncos said season tickets will also go on sale soon.Anticipating high demand, team officials will make every effort to ensure current season-ticket holders get first right of refusal on their seats.The world rallied around the team following the crash. More than $15 million was raised in a GoFundMe campaign for the survivors and the families of those killed.People also showed support for the Broncos by putting hockey sticks on porches, wearing jerseys and memorial ribbons, and holding other fundraisers.Note to readers: This is a corrected story. An earlier version spelled Darcy Haugan’s last name incorrectly.last_img read more

GameDock turns your iPhone into a games console

first_imgJust the other day we wrote about the iCade device that turns your iphone or ipod into a game pad. Chris Jorgensen and Andi Greisel decided the iCade didn’t work well enough for them, so they started a Kickstarter to fund their alternative solution.Inspired by the original Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), the GameDock is a dock for your iPhone, iPod, or iPad which connects to your TV and comes with one controller that plugs into the dock. You can then use the TV as a monitor and play all your favourite games the classic way. As well as offering up mobile games on a big screen, the dock doubles as a charger for your iPhone.Over 100 games are already supported and you can play either single player or two player with the addition of a second classic controller. A HDMI connection makes hooking this up to a large TV a breeze.The project needs $50,000 in order to buy the required materials in bulk and make the hardware affordable to manufacture and offer at a reasonable retail price. The software is updatable and the hardware uses Bluetooth to link to the phone.The dock comes with a built in app which acts as a dashboard to select what game you want to play, meaning you don’t have to move off the couch and interact with your phone directly. Even if you don’t have a TV to hook up to, you can still use the GameDock with the iPhone or iPad as the display.It’s a neat idea and seems like it could work really well. However, if you want one you’ll have to pledge at least $150, which is more than double what the iCade costs. It’s a lot to fork out for something that just means you can play your App Store games on the TV. For that price, I’d personally rather buy a Nintendo DS or put the cash towards a PS Vita.More at Kickstarterlast_img read more

Some US Republicans side with Democrats to block Trump declaring a border

Scott Applewhite 27 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article https://jrnl.ie/4542962 By AFPcenter_img THE US SENATE has delivered a strong rebuke of President Donald Trump as several Republicans joined opposition Democrats in voting to terminate his declared emergency on the southern border.A dozen Republicans supported ending Trump’s declared emergency.The president had hoped that it would provide him cover to secure alternative government funding for his protective wall on the US-Mexico border which had been denied to him by Congress.But opponents warned that Trump’s move smacked of executive overreach, and insisted a vote to curtail his authority would preserve the constitutionally mandated separation of powers in Washington.Trump tweeted “VETO” this evening in response to the vote. Trump said the move declaring the emergency allowed him to skirt Congress and repurpose billions of dollars in other government funds, including money that was earmarked to build or renovate military facilities.But Democrats and some Republicans strongly resisted the move.They argued that Congress is constitutionally appointed to control the government’s purse strings – and declaring an emergency to seize more money is a blatant abuse of executive authority.Republicans control the Senate, 53 to 47, 12 today supported the resolution of disapproval, giving Democrats the numbers they needed to get it through.Senator Mitt Romney, a former Republican presidential candidate who supported the measure, said it was “a vote for the constitution and for the balance of power that is at its core”.A group of Republicans sought to limit defections by cutting a deal yesterday with Trump to limit his powers on emergency declarations, but the president refused.Earlier today, he acknowledged that “I’ll probably have to veto” the legislation, the first such executive blockage of legislation in his presidency.But he is likely to get his way nonetheless, at least for now, before the issue gets taken up by the courts, as Democrats will not have enough votes to override the veto.“It won’t be overturned and the legal scholars say it’s totally constitutional,” Trump said.“It is, pure and simple, a vote for border security,” he said earlier.© AFP 2019 With reporting from Cormac Fitzgerald The Capitol building in Washington. 13,651 Views Short URL Share1 Tweet Email Mar 14th 2019, 7:31 PM last_img read more

Apple Tim Cook donne 100 millions de dollars aux oeuvres caritatives

first_imgApple : Tim Cook donne 100 millions de dollars aux oeuvres caritativesTim Cook a décidé de briser le mystère entourant les dons d’Apple pour les œuvres caritatives.Tim Cook, le PDG d’Apple semble vouloir changer l’image d’Apple. Ce dernier, remplaçant du défunt Steve Jobs, ne tait plus les fonds reversés par l’entreprise de Cupertino à des œuvres caritatives. Selon le site The Verge, le successeur de Steve Jobs, Tim Cook, communique désormais sur la responsabilité sociétale de son entreprise. M. Cook a déclaré la semaine dernière qu’Apple avait versé 50 millions de dollars (38 millions d’euros) à l’hôpital de Stanford pour permettre la construction d’un nouveau bâtiment principal et d’un hôpital pour enfants. La firme à la Pomme a par ailleurs fait don de la même somme de 50 millions de dollars pour permettre la lutte contre le virus VIH, dans le cadre du Project Red. Apple a donné cette somme à une fondation créée par le chanteur du groupe U2, Bono, par ailleurs ami de Steve Jobs.Il semblerait que même si Steve Jobs ne communiquait pas à ce sujet, son successeur ait décidé de doubler le montant des dons des employés d’Apple.

Irish journalist says ONeill was sensitive to criticism

Report reveals at least 300 predator priests in Pennsylvania

first_imgMore than 300 Catholic priests in Pennsylvania are implicated in the report What happened?The 900 page report, released on Tuesday 15 August, implicated at least 300 so-called ‘predator priests’. These priests committed ‘criminal and/or morally reprehensible conduct.’One priest in the Diocese of Erie admitted to assaulting at least a dozen boys. He was later thanked by the bishop for ‘all that you have done for God’s people.’Another priest in Harrisburg abused five sisters in a single family. A third in Greensburg impregnated at 17-year-old, married her, and divorced her just months later.According to NPR, the grand jury reviewed half a million pages of internal church documents and ‘secret archives’ available only to bishops. Credible accounts were found by more than 1,000 victims.The findings date back at least 80 years. ‘It detailed how fellow clergy members conducted shoddy investigations into sexual abuse allegations and how bishops often sided with abusive priests,’ NPR reports.‘Despite some institutional reform, individual leaders of the church have largely escaped public accountability. Priests were raping little boys and girls, and the men of God who were responsible for them not only did nothing; they hid it all,’ the report states. A long-awaited grand jury investigation found evidence of decades of sexual abuse cover-ups among six of the eight Roman Catholic dioceses in Pennsylvania. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) ‘For decades. Monsignors, auxiliary bishops, bishops, archbishops, cardinals have mostly been protected; many, including some named in this report, have been promoted. Until that changes, we think it is too early to close the book on the Catholic Church sex scandal.’The report counted 41 ‘predator priests’ in Erie, 37 in Allentown, 20 in Greensburg, 45 in Harrisburg, 99 in Pittsburgh, and 59 in Scranton.‘The pattern was abuse, deny and cover up,’ said state Attorney General Josh Shapiro during a press conference.What’s next?As part of this report, the grand jury made a series of recommendations. One such recommendation is to eliminate the statute of limitations for child sexual abuse. It also suggested a ‘civil window’ law, which would allow victims two years to file civil charges retroactively.‘We saw these victims; they are marked for life. Many of them wind up addicted, or impaired, or dead before their time,’ the grand jury wrote.Anything else?This report comes just a couple months after a priest from Allentown was removed following a lawsuit claiming he had sexually abused a teen boy.Got a news tip?

Clear Guide Medical Wins FDA Clearance for Scenergy UltrasoundCT Fusion System

The device helps interventional radiologists and surgeons perform minimally invasive biopsies and other diagnostic and therapeutic procedures through an intelligently integrated display of fused ultrasound and CT images. The system is sold as an accessory to most ultrasound machines.Working in collaboration with partner hospitals, Scenergy was developed in response to a clear need for simpler multimodality imaging using ultrasound while minimizing the number of CTs and time spent in the CT suite. By showing the clarity of CT with the real-time visualization of ultrasound, users experience the benefits of both modalities simultaneously. Procedure duration will drop with Scenergy’s fully automated registration process. Best of all, Scenergy does not require special needles or new imaging equipment, preserving the customary workflow and maximizing the productivity of existing capital equipment.Clear Guide Medical designed the device to address the myriad challenges associated with working with CT and ultrasound images simultaneously. Current fusion systems require long and complex registration processes. Scenergy eliminates this step through automated registration and system fusion, which is continuously updated throughout the procedure. The time required for registration drops to seconds. Moreover, clinical recommendations to reduce CT radiation doses heighten the importance of good ultrasound visualization. With CT precisely overlaid on the ultrasound plane, deep and challenging lesions can be visualized and targeted efficiently.”The ability to see my target lesion clearly before, during and after a procedure means procedures can be reliably performed in ultrasound with real-time imaging, freeing up the CT suite for diagnostic imaging and mitigating exposure to ionizing radiation for the patient and staff,” said Joseph Fonte, M.D., of Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston. “This is a game-changer.”The intuitive instrument navigation overlays the path of standard instruments on the imaging. The ability to lock in a target, then realign the probe from a different angle and find that target with precision can be helpful in a number of situations.The Scenergy is not yet available for sale outside the United States. Clear Guide Medical is currently pursuing other international clearances for clinical use. A research system was already installed in the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Center for Interventional Oncology.For more information: www.clearguidemedical.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Video Player is loading.Mark Ibrahim explains what EPs need from CT imagingPlay VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 5:23Loaded: 3.08%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -5:23 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Fuel quakes impact THAI

first_imgThai Airways has reported a 147.5 percent loss in profit before income tax for the full year last year compared to 2010, citing uncontrollable factors for the loss.The company’s executive vice president of financial and accounting Wasukarn Visansawatdi explained the drop from 16.657 million baht to a 7.917 million baht was a result of “external factors”.Among the issues responsible for the decline according to the VP of accounting are the rising cost of fuel, EU economic crisis, Japan’s quake and Bangkok’s flooding late last year.Wasukarn Visansawatdi added to deal with the rising cost, the carrier promptly adjusted its flights and schedules to cope with the change.“THAI closely monitored fuel price and made necessary adjustments to the level of fuel surcharge to cover the jump in fuel cost but with fierce market competition, THAI was not able to sufficiently adjust fuel surcharge to cover the jump in fuel cost increase which adversely impacted THAI’s overall profitability for 2011.”Despite the loss, the carriers total revenues increased by 5.5 percent from 184,270 million baht to 194,342 million baht.Meanwhile traffic decline by two percent from the year compared to the prior year while the number of passengers carried increased by 1.2 percent from 341 million to 355 million.

Songlines to illuminate Sydney Opera House Sails for Vivid

first_imgLighting The Sails. Songlines. Artwork by Karla D.Australia’s ancient Songlines will weave across the sails of the Sydney Opera House from 6pm on 27 May as part of the first Indigenous Lighting the Sails at Vivid Sydney, in a spectacular animation co-curated by Destination NSW and the Sydney Opera House.Songlines is inspired by the ancient dreaming tracks that weave across the landscape and skies, featuring the work of six renowned Indigenous artists: Karla Dickens, Djon Mundine OAM, Reko Rennie, Gabriella Possum, Donny Woolagoodja and the late Gulumbu Yunipingu.Songlines Director and Sydney Opera House Head of Indigenous Programming Rhoda Roberts says: “The songlines have been connecting Australian Aboriginal people for thousands of years. Songlines is a monumental work and an unprecedented opportunity for people around the world to really connect with the culture of Australia’s First People and glimpse the old trade routes that connected us all to country.“The songlines are a living map and an archive of our culture. These pieces of art bring an entirely new look to the Opera House – steeped in tradition but so contemporary and relevant today. I simply cannot wait to see it unveiled during Vivid Sydney.”Vivid Sydney Creative Director Ignatius Jones says: “It is an honour to have these artists sharing such a profound cultural story of Australia’s Aboriginal people through Songlines at Vivid Sydney.“Each year Vivid Sydney showcases art and innovation, and cutting-edge animation has been utilised to bring the Songlines projection to life.

The music explores the themes of salt water, fresh water, sky, wind and the desert.That has a particular resonance on Bennelong Point, known to the Gadigal for thousands of years as Tubowgule, which means where the knowledge waters meet. Songlines honours Tubowgule’s rich history as a gathering place for community, ceremony, songs, storytelling and celebration.Contemporary Indigenous visual artists from across the country interpret the songlines through distinctive symbols, patterning and imagery representative of the stories of their clans and groups. Songlines has been animated for the Opera House sails by award-winning studio Artists In Motion.

Conservationists outraged over lacking impact assessments in casino project

first_imgConservationist group BirdLife Cyprus voiced outrage on Tuesday and accused the authorities of going ahead with the development of the huge casino resort at Zakaki without proper environmental impact assessments in a frantic development race in the name of profit and at the expense of protected areas and species.In a statement released on Tuesday, BirdLife said the lack of proper assessments went against EU and Cypriot laws.“The Akrotiri Peninsula is a unique wetland and is home to many wonderful birds, plants and habitats protected under national and European laws,” BirdLife said. “While media coverage has very much focused on the economic and job creation benefits of this touristic development, very little has been said about the environmental impacts of this huge project on the peninsula and its wildlife. These have, sadly, been brushed away, in the name of profit.”Circled area shows where the casino will be locatedThe NGO said the project is located next to the most important wetland in Cyprus, the Akrotiri Salt Lake, and also within an area that has been recognized as an Important Bird Area (IBA) and which should, therefore, have been protected as a Natura 2000 site for its outstanding importance for the Red-footed Falcon.The falcon, whose population is in decline, visits Cyprus every spring and autumn and uses the area to roost and feed during migration.“A project of this size will lead to the loss of valuable habitat not only for the Red-footed Falcon but for also many other species, such as the Eleonora’s Falcon, with possibly irreversible consequences.”Despite the laying of the foundation stone being set for Friday, the environmental impact assessment has not yet been completed and there was no sign of the extra, appropriate assessment called for when developments loom close to Natura 2000 sites, which the Akrotiri Peninsula is.“Shockingly, the consultants that undertook the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) study on behalf of the casino development company are ignoring and denying the presence of the two falcon species in the area,” BirdLife said. “Even worse, their study concludes that ‘there would be no adverse impact, that the self-contained resort would be built within an urban zoning area and that the part in dispute did not have protected wildlife’.”Red-footed Falcon by Albert StoeckerBirdLife rejected the claims, saying that the EIA was “insufficient and of low quality” on multiple issues: impact on protected bird species, bird monitoring surveys, assessment of cumulative effects, loss of very good irrigated agricultural land; “One can only question the credibility and robustness of this EIA study when it concludes that this massive casino project, built next to the Akrotiri wetland, will not have any adverse impacts on the environment”The organisation said it was not against development as long as proper EIAs were undertaken and there were no serious impacts on the environment.“Sadly, over the last few months, we have been witnessing development ‘popping up’ and illegal activities taking place in a number of protected areas, while environmental assessment procedures are either ‘fast-tracked’ or bypassed in favour of short-term economic growth.” You May LikeMy Food and FamilyQuick and Easy Monday Night Dinner: Thai Drunken NoodlesMy Food and FamilyUndoBeach RaiderHeartwarming Moments Of Shelter Dogs And People Meeting For The First TimeBeach RaiderUndoConstative.comThese Celebrity Doppelgangers Will Have You Seeing DoubleConstative.comUndo Films and food at RialtoUndoWidowers threaten legal action over pensionsUndoLED-lighting the way by 2020Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
