While the patient flatlines, surgeons clear the tissue with specialized tools in 20-minute increments, so as not to permanently damage the patient’s brain and heart functions.“To do 4,000 of these surgeries, the most in the world with the best outcomes, requires a true team effort,” said Dr. Michael Madani, UCSD Health’s chief of cardiovascular and thoracic surgery. “I just could not be prouder of the multi-disciplinary team I work with.”The surgery is the most effective treatment for chronic thromboembolic pulmonary hypertension, according to UCSD. Sheila Holt, the 4,000th patient to undergo the surgery, had a particularly difficult case of CTEPH, Madani said. Had it been five or 10 years prior, the surgery may not have been an option due to the tissue’s location in her lungs.“Sheila had significant pulmonary hypertension with clots that were far out in the smaller vessels,” Madani said. “She’ll be in my memory forever now not only for being number 4,000, but a more challenging case, as well.”UCSD’s PTE surgical department is the first in the country to receive Center of Excellence designation by the American College of Chest Physicians.According to the university, the program has had the lowest postoperative mortality rate in the world for the past decade at 1 to 2 percent.“It’s surreal to be part of something that makes such a big difference in people’s lives,” Holt said. “I’m so happy I took this leap of faith. It’s life-changing.” Categories: Health, Local San Diego News FacebookTwitterlast_img read more

Republic of the Arctic Proponent And Native Rights Activist Charles Etok Edwardsen

first_imgA life devoted to whaling and land rights has come to an end. Charles Etok Edwardsen passed away in the place he loved best, a whale camp.Download Audio:Edwardsen was an outspoken activist who fought against the Alaska Native Claims Settlement Act because he believed the Inupiaq people of the north should control the land and resources of the arctic. He was born in Barrow and was the oldest of 14 children. His sister Beverly Hugo says he fought for modern services for his people after seeing running water and flush toilets at boarding school. She says, even as a child, he was strong willed, stowing away on his grandfather’s whaling boat when he was only 5 years old.“He did hide… [laughing]… and got into Grandpa’s boat. And when Grandpa realized that his son was not going to be denied, he gave him the task of throwing the float after the shoulder person has shot the whale and the harpooner has sent the harpoon off, and Etok’s job as a little boy was to throw the float out.”Beverly says her mother loved to sew traditional clothing for her oldest son. She says when her mom was dying, her brother got his parka wet on a hunting trip and her mom worried about who would care for him after she was gone.Beverly Hugo is a younger sister of the late Charles Etok Edwardsen, who died on May 8th. She says as he requested, there will be a political rally instead of a memorial service in his honor. That rally will happen on Saturday in Barrow.last_img read more

A Network Rail spokesman said: “The RMT Union will undertake industrial action, affecting Northern on 29 September and 6, 13 and 20 October. “Northern expect to operate a reduced timetable with very few trains running before 09:00 and after 18:00. Around 30% of services are expected to run. Locked-up: North Staffordshire criminals jailed in September 2018 “On some routes, Northern will not be able to run trains, while others have a limited service. Trains that do run are expected to be extremely busy.

The closure is in place so a bridge over the A50 carriageway can be safely demolished as part of Staffordshire County Council’s work on the A50 Growth Corridor – a multi-million pound Government investment to cut congestion, address safety concerns, support local businesses and create more jobs. A diversion is in place around the closure, with motorists advised to factor more time into their journeys throughout the weekend, which could affect Stoke City supporters heading for Rotherham’s New York Stadium. A50 DiversionThe diversion route will be the same for vehicles travelling in both directions. From the East, traffic will be diverted northwards from the A50 at Uttoxeter on to the B5030 for a few hundred yards to the roundabout with the A518. Traffic will turn right there, cross back over the A50 along The Dove Way and continue on the A518 clockwise around Uttoxeter and follow the road towards Stafford. Vehicles will then follow the A51 and A34 towards Stoke-on-Trent, before joining the A500 and then the A50 to Blythe Bridge. The route is reversed from the West. County council economy boss Mark Winnington said: “We have done as much of the preparatory work as possible in advance to reduce the amount of time the A50 needs to be closed, but the knock-on effect from the diversion will mean some local roads will be busier than usual that weekend. “I would like to thank everyone for their patience and understanding and suggest they allow extra time for journeys.” Read MoreRoadworks from October 1 until October 4 North Staffordshire and South Cheshire Roadworks in Stafford Borough/Uttoxeterlast_img read more

AK Sanctuary Olonana in the Masai wins Eco Warrior Environmental

first_imgThe Eco Warrior Awards were announced this week – and we are delighted that Sanctuary Olonana, one of bercrombie & Kent’s exclusive tented camps in the Masai Mara, was one of the winners. Launched by Ecotourism Kenya in 2005, these prestigious awards honour innovation within the Kenyan tourism industry with the aim of encouraging sustainable tourism that respects the environment, empowers local communities and promotes good business practice.The Eco Warrior Awards recognise companies or individuals for their achievements in four main areas: outstanding innovation, key achievements, sustainability and replicability.The six winners all demonstrated innovation in one or more of these areas, with Sanctuary Olonana commended for its sustainable practices including: • Designing an innovative wetland system that cleans wastewater before returning it to the natural environment. • Establishing a special tree-planting project to help prevent the deforestation in the Masai Mara and in the process engage the participation of the local community.• Building a crafts shop at Sanctuary Olonana where Maasai women from the neighbouring village can exclusively display and sell their wares to guests staying at the camp.• Creating a partnership with the Maasai village so that guests can visit the village to learn about local culture. At the end of every month Sanctuary Olonana makes a contribution to the village on behalf of every client who visited the village, providing a source of income for the whole community.The team of judges all agreed, “Sanctuary Olonana shared their vision on how the Mara or any area in Kenya can become sustainable in terms of energy production and use. In addition, they provided a clear example of innovation in waste management and how this can be replicated. Sanctuary Olonana have established an indigenous tree planting project that guests can participate in which they hope will be replicated in the Mara to help curb deforestation.”Like all Sanctuary properties, Sanctuary Olonana operates around the ethos of “luxury,naturally”. The first of Sanctuary Retreats’ African properties, this is an exclusive and sustainable camp built along the Mara River at the foot of the Siria Escarpment. The 14 spacious canvas tents all have floor to ceiling mosquito nets, en-suite bathrooms with hot showers, flush lavatories, solar lighting and large river view verandas.

MPs urged to delay vote on changes to foreclosure law

first_imgFINANCE minister Harris Georgiades as well as the banking industry urged lawmakers on Thursday to delay voting on proposed amendments to the foreclosures law, changes that could weaken lenders’ ability to recover loans and trigger a chain reaction of adverse side-effects.“It is the government’s clear recommendation that we not rush now into changing the law,” Georgiades told MPs.Moreover, he added, the timing was all wrong.It was best to wait until the Estia debt relief scheme for homeowners kicked in, and allow some time to assess the programme’s efficacy before tinkering with the law on foreclosures.“We should not fiddle with the legislation until we at least have a picture [on whether Estia delivers],” the minister pleaded.The law on foreclosures was amended in the summer of 2018 to make it more effective, some four years after it was passed by parliament with changes that essentially rendered it toothless and unable to help banks reduce non-performing loans.Up until then, the IMF, the European Commission and the European Central Bank (ECB), the troika of international creditors which supervised Cyprus’ 2013 bailout, had been calling for an amendment to the law to make it more effective.Now, opposition parties have drafted five amendments which banks fear would defang the law by enabling strategic defaulters to drag out the foreclosures process.The thrust of the amendments is to provide vulnerable debtors – essentially homeowners with mortgages they can’t service – extra safeguards. But critics say the law as it stands already provides adequate protections.The government and the banks say the amendments, if passed, will both delay and complicate foreclosures proceedings, preventing lenders from reducing their stock of non-performing loans.A Central Bank official noted that currently in Cyprus NPLs account for 30 per cent of all loans, compared to the eurozone average of 3 per cent.Making it harder for banks to recover loans would in turn disincentivize them from issuing new loans, starving the economy of fresh capital, but also force them to increase their provisions on the books – set aside more capital for contingencies.Banks’ inability to divest of NPLs would additionally force them to raise interest rates.MPs’ concerns that debtors could be thrown out of their homes appear unfounded. For example, to date Bank of Cyprus has restructured some 28,700 loans. Over the past 12 months, only 921 of these restructurings related to home loans.In the same time period, the bank foreclosed on 242 properties. Not one of the foreclosed properties was a primary home.Fifty percent of the foreclosures related to undeveloped parcels of land, and the rest were villas and commercial properties.Weighing in, the Association of Cyprus Banks (ACB) warned that hampering the ability to recover loans would also result in a downgrading of Cypriot banks’ credit ratings.In a memo, the association cited one proposed amendment which, in their view, would wreak havoc on the recovery of NPLs tied to properties.Under this amendment, the debtor would be able to set aside a notice to foreclose by simply filing for a procedural injunction with a district court.Previously, foreclosure proceedings could be stopped in their tracks only if the court found in favour of the debtor and issued the injunction. Now, merely the seeking of an injunction would be enough.What’s more, under the amendments a debtor can set aside a foreclosure notice if he or she so much as applies for the Estia debt relief scheme. Previously, the notice could be set aside only if the applicant had been accepted for Estia.The ACB also recalled that Cyprus had undertaken to clean up its act with regard to the massive NPLs in return for the European Commission green-lighting the sale of the Cooperative Bank.It cited a European Commission document dated June 19, 2018 titled “State Aid SA.35334 (2018/N-2) – Cyprus – Liquidation aid for the orderly market exit of Cyprus Cooperative Bank Ltd.”The document reads: “In order to eliminate the major impediments to the workout of NPLs in the country, Cyprus commits to enact far-reaching reforms that will allow an effective workout of NPLs by banks, asset managers and asset servicers, while continuing to protect the most vulnerable borrowers.“The scope of these reforms will include, among other things, the legislation covering foreclosure to allow for the effective enforcement of claims, the setup of an electronic auction system for properties subject to foreclosure proceedings, a better access to the financial information of borrowers by financial institutions and a reform of the judicial process, in order to greatly increase the efficiency of handling of NPL cases by the judicial system.”You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoEditorChoice.comIf You Have Any Of These 20 Toys Around, You Just Became RichEditorChoice.comUndoSmart Tips DailySeniors With No Life Insurance May Get A $250,000 Policy If They Do ThisSmart Tips DailyUndo Our View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoThree arrested in connection with hotel theftsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
