The Federal Court of Appeal last month quashed the approval the NEB and the cabinet gave the project in 2016, citing improper consultation with Indigenous communities and a lack of review of the marine shipping issue.Several Indigenous communities, environmental groups and the B.C. government are concerned about the higher risk of oil spills if an expanded pipeline increases oil tanker traffic from five per month to 35.Sohi is also appointing a special marine technical adviser to be part of the NEB’s new review, but that person has yet to be named.(THE CANADIAN PRESS) OTTAWA, O.N. – The National Energy Board has less than six months to redo its environmental review of the Trans Mountain pipeline expansion, this time taking into account the impact of additional oil tanker traffic off the coast of British Columbia.Natural Resources Minister Amarjeet Sohi is making the announcement this morning in Halifax, where Canada is hosting environment and energy ministers at a G7 summit meeting.The federal cabinet has ordered the NEB to return with a new recommendation within 22 weeks on whether the pipeline expansion should proceed after taking a look at the environmental impact of having more than three dozen oil tankers shipping diluted bitumen through the Burrard Inlet every month.
The initiative will help in exploring opportunities for exchange visits by Alumni. It will provide guidance, useful information/tips and contacts for fresh graduates before their departure to Pakistan and vice versa. To foster, encourage and promote close relations between the people of Pakistan and Sri Lanka and to provide support to prospective Sri Lankan students going to Pakistan for higher education, the High Commission of Pakistan in Sri Lanka is planning to launch Pakistan Alumni Society of Sri Lanka, soon.The Society aims to connect the universities of both countries under various scholarship programmes. Through this Alumni Society, the public and private sectors as well as civil society will be able to build networks and create professional opportunities that will contribute to the development of two countries. The purpose of this alumni society is to engage the members and provide them means to learn, integrate, and share what they learned during their education/training for the benefits of a larger community. All Sri Lankan citizens those who received professional qualifications or attended short or long term training programmes in Pakistan are eligible to join the Society.It will make meaningful contributions to the development of both countries through community service, conferences, mentoring future generations, and reaching out to inspire and recruit new exchange participants. Further details and membership form can be downloaded from Pakistan High Commission’s website i.e. http://www.pakistanhc.lk/pakistan-alumni-society-of-sri-lanka/.
Older persons caring for their HIV-infected adult children and their orphaned grandchildren face many harsh realities, including financial hardship and lack of access to basic needs, according to a report by the United Nations World Health Organization (WHO).Based on a case study conducted in Zimbabwe, “Impact of AIDS on older people in Africa” contends that older people are largely left on their own in the important role they are providing in the care and support of their adult children who are terminally ill and the orphans they leave behind. They do this in poverty, without recognition, and often in poor health, the report states. Their contribution is critical within the broad context of improving access to HIV/AIDS care and support, but is generally ignored by society.”The contribution of older people as care-givers for their children dying from AIDS and of their orphaned grandchildren – Africa’s future human capital – is as vast as it is unsung, unrewarded and unsupported,” says Dr. Alex Kalache of the WHO Ageing and Life Course team. “However obviously important, such contribution is, by and large, ignored by societies.”The report recommends that older people’s caretaker role should be recognized and supported, stressing that unless these caregivers are in good health they cannot continue providing the care that is required. It calls for a change in the attitude of health workers and other service providers, as well as a change in the policies of health and other agencies to ensure that older people have access to proper social, economic and emotional support.The study took place in 2001 in six of the 10 provinces of Zimbabwe. It employed a mix of qualitative and quantitative research methods to interview 685 older people. The group comprised 40 per cent urban and 60 per cent rural households, all of them providing HIV/AIDS-related care. Two thirds of all these caregivers are women.
Breaking down the $188.8 million tab, he says, the estimate provides for the phased deployment of an additional 2,590 military contingent personnel, 216 civilian police personnel and five formed police units (625 formed police personnel), bringing the Mission’s military, civilian police and formed police strength to 19,290 military personnel, 391 civilian police officers and 750 formed police staff.The estimate also provides for the phased deployment of additional 170 international and 470 national staff and 154 United Nations Volunteers (UNV), he adds in a special report to the 15-member Security Council.The 2005/2006 cost of maintaining the core 17,000-strong UN Organization Mission in the DRC (MONUC) is $1.3 billion, including the $383.2 million that the General Assembly already approved for 1 July to 31 October, he says.If the Security Council approves the expenditures, the 191-member General Assembly will be asked to supply the additional funding, he says.Meanwhile, MONUC said its staff in Mbuji-Mbayi had initiated a resumption of the dialogue between the authorities in Kasaï Oriental Province and the Union for Democracy and Social Progress (UDPS), one of the country’s opposition parties.”After two hours of a courteous discussion, the participants separated, having made two pledges: one that they would see one another again and the other that the dialogue started that day under MONUC’s auspices not be interrupted,” it said.
Watching a Blu-Ray movie on your smartphone is admittedly pretty counter-intuitive, but believe it or not, part of the Blu-Ray standard is a mechanism allowing you to do just that. It’s called a Blu-Ray Digital Copy, which — in theory — allows you to pump a frame-by-frame copy at a lower resolution to a smaller device.Up until now, though, no Blu-Ray movies have allowed you to actually do so, but with Fox’s Blu-Ray release of Unstoppable — a surprisingly entertaining “killer train run amok” popcorn flick — you’ll finally be able to watch a Blu-Ray movie on your Android phone. That is, you can watch it on your Android phone if you’re willing to go through one of the most complicated processes of your life, because to bring Unstoppable over, you’ll need: “the Unstoppable Blu-ray disc, a wi-fi connected Blu-ray player, Android 1.6 or higher, and the PocketBLU app, which can be downloaded free from the Android Market”. Bring all of those disparate elements together in one Voltron-esque form, and you’ll be able to watch this entertaining but disposable movie on your Android phone. Can I point something out, though? This sort of ridiculous hoop-jumping is why people just warez. As a legitimate customer, if I want to watch a Blu-Ray movie I own on my phone, even if the film does support Blu-Ray Digital Copy, the process of getting the film on my handset is hopelessly convoluted. It’d be a far simpler matter to just download the movie off of Bittorrent. Why bother?Read more at Engadget
Sitdown Sunday: The psychiatrist who believed people could predict the future Settle back in a comfy chair and sit back with some of the week’s best longreads. 4. The mysterious nodding disease The deadly ‘nodding disease’ has been affecting people in East Africa for decades – but what is it and why does it strike people?(BBC, approx 15 mins reading time)Eventually Jilek-Aall realised that her patients were having seizures, which they called kifafa – Swahili for “the little death” – and falling down. Sometimes they would land in the open hearths where they cooked their food. Occasionally they would end up in the river. But the mystery didn’t end there. The same children also tended to have stunted growth, intellectual difficulties and characteristic mannerisms, such as an awkward gait and deadpan facial expressions.5. Was Bill Hicks a misogynist?Bill Hicks is a now legendary comedian, but people are starting to re-assess his work in the light of gender politics today.(The Guardian, approx 15 mins reading time)Kemah Bob, a compatriot of Hicks, runs the Femmes of Colour (FOC It Up) Comedy Club in London. She’d never watched his work before I contacted her for this article, and found doing so a hoot. “He’s like, ‘Who smokes? All right! Now I’m talkin’ ’bout drugs. You know what I hate? The war on drugs. You know what I love? Sex. And rock’n’roll.’ It felt very reminiscent of the era.”6. Revolut Revolut is a digital bank that aims to ‘disrupt’ the traditional banking system. But it’s recently been subject to a number of controversies. Here’s a look at what’s been going on.(Wired, approx 20 mins reading time)Several country managers hired around that time recount of a similar experience. One says that he would be working every waking hour of the day and every weekend. During the weekdays he would execute strategies to promote the app – such as organising events or talking to local journalists – and at night and in the weekends he would translate the Revolut app and website into the language of the country he was managing.…AND A CLASSIC FROM THE ARCHIVES…The US carried out A-bomb tests two thousands of miles away from civilisation.

Donald Shirley and Green BookThere has been a lot of controversy around the Oscar-winning film Green Book – here’s the story of Shirley himself, and how the film reflects it.(Shadow and Act, approx 38 mins reading time)“And so, I said to him at the time, ‘Well, perhaps you can set some conditions whereby you can be involved if they agree to certain things in terms of control for you,’ and what he said at the time was, ‘No matter what they say to me now, I will not have any control over how I am portrayed.’” As the family’s insistence on the inaccuracies in Green Book shows, Dr. Shirley was right.3. The psychiatrist who believed people could tell the futureJohn Barker was a British psychiatrist who began collecting stories of people’s visions. But his work had an intense impact on him.(The New Yorker, approx 37 mins reading time)Barker was intrigued. He believed that he had treated at least two men during his career whose extreme agitation had either killed them or hastened their demise. Medicine seemed only partly able to explain what had happened. In 1942, Walter Cannon, the head of physiology at Harvard Medical School, had used the phrase “voodoo death” to describe a potential biological mechanism by which someone could be frightened to death—an overload of the sympathetic nervous system and the adrenal glands. 25,598 Views https://jrnl.ie/4521388 Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article
Back in October of last year, I got to go hands-on with Game of Thrones: Conquest. Though I’m not a fan of mobile gaming, I found this MMO Strategy RPG quite intriguing because it’s based on a property I love. Since then, the developers at WB Games Boston have delivered a wealth of new content and updates to keep fans happy. Today, they’re giving users one of the most requested features: dragons. These powerful creatures not only make the game feel more like Game of Thrones, but they also give players new strategies to employ in combat.Every player receives a dragon egg when they reach Keep Level 4. When this happens, the mountain next to their keep opens up to reveal a dragon pit. This is where users can hatch their dragon egg by burning wood and timber. The dragon grows from hatchling to welp to adolescent. At launch, dragons grow into adolescence over forty levels. The dragon pit is a fully 3D environment, as is the dragon within. In order to make one’s dragon grow, you have to feed it fish or livestock obtained during the normal course of play. Adult dragons won’t come at launch, but they will arrive later this year.Dragons aren’t just another troop class. The update comes with additional features and enhancements. Talents is a new system where you unlock skills to upgrade combat, defense, and mobility. Different battles call for different strategies. Thankfully, you can reset skills at any time to suit your needs. For example, if you’re going up against a player with a lot of archers, you may want to reallocate skills to make your dragon better at long-range combat.Research is an existing system within the game. It has four new research trees that allow players to customize their dragon’s offensive and defensive capabilities. These upgrades are permanent and define what dragons can do. Dragons deliver certain buffs during combat which impact the entire army.Speaking of buffs, you get these as soon as you obtain your dragon egg. You’ll go from having a dragon that protects your keep, to one that collects resources, and eventually to a creature that fights against PvE monsters. These battles will of course make your dragon stronger and prepare them to take on other players. When adult dragons arrive, users can rally with up to six others against a Seat of Power. You’ll see dragons fly overhead, swoop down, and blast fire at the enemy. This makes combat feel even more chaotic than normal.Similar titles have dragons as nothing more than a powerful troop type. The developers wanted dragons to impact multiple levels of the game and to augment combat strategy. To that end, there are two new types of attacks. One is a preemptive strike that helps defend your keep. If a player marches toward your keep, you can use Repel Strike and have your dragon go out and annihilate some of their troops before they arrive. This automatic process makes enemy troops significantly weaker. The other attack is Fire Breath. When sending your dragon on a march against another player, you can use Fire Breath to whittle down their troops before you arrive. Both attacks are incredibly effective and change up combat in a meaningful way.Dragons cannot die but they can be wounded to the point where they’re no longer able to fight. If a dragon’s HP reaches 0, players must wait a certain amount of time before they can use them again. During this period, all buffs granted by the dragon disappear, which forces users to rethink their strategy. The devs are currently working on ways to give players without dragons a way to defend against attacks from these creatures. One possible weapon is the Scorpion seen in the last season of Game of Thrones. Players without dragons will likely be lower-level, which means higher-level users won’t attack them because it’ll be a waste of their resources. At the moment, there are no dragon vs dragon battles.While dragons are certainly a powerful new element, they are not a disruptive force. The fundamentals of Game of Thrones: Conquest don’t change, they’re simply enhanced. Dragons add layers on top of the choices players can already make. They will also introduce new events and augment existing ones. At launch, dragons are accessible to everyone.Players can customize the look of dragons to make them their own. The team worked with HBO to see what color profiles work best for the creatures. After all, having a pink polka dot dragon wouldn’t exactly fit with the world’s naturalistic aesthetic. At launch, dragons will bear the same color schemes of a player’s sigil and banner. After launch, players can expect more customization options.Game of Thrones: Conquest has actually been building up hype for dragons during most of October. Things like the splash screen have given players a hint of what’s to come. One screen shows a red comet, which is a sign of dragons returning. Dragon silhouettes have also been seen flying over cities and maps. There have even been certain dragon artifacts popping up throughout the game. The in-game board had dragon skulls and three missing dragon eggs. The splash screen also illustrated the history of dragons. This was definitely a cool way to build momentum for the update and get players excited.Game of Thrones: Conquest was already a pretty great mobile game so it’s awesome to see it receive a substantial update like this. As I said up top, it makes the whole thing feel more authentic and closer to the source material. The best part is that this is just the beginning. Things will certainly get more interesting later this year with the introduction of adult dragons. With the final season of Game of Thrones still many months away, playing Game of Thrones: Conquest is a nice way to get your A Song of Ice and Fire fix before the show’s epic conclusion begins.You can download Game of Thrones: Conquest from the Apple or Google Play stores.More on Geek.com:‘The Walking Dead: Our World’ is ‘Pokemon Go’ with ZombiesAfter ‘Day’s Gone’ What’s the Next Early 2019 Gaming CasualtyBest GBA Games Stay on target Conquer Westeros On Your Phone With Game of Thrones: Conquest
As for John Sturgeon, he says he still goes on his annual moose hunt, in the same area, but he takes his jet boat or a small airboat. Sturgeon says he’s had no more confrontations with Park rangers.“They’ve kind of avoided me,” he said. “In fact, I go on this side of the river and I see them going on that side of the river.”He says the hovercraft is in his yard in south Anchorage, under a blue tarp.“I’ve still got it. Then engine is in the garage, and when I win, I’m going to put it back in and I’m going to go moose hunting again,” he said.There’s no telling when the court will issue its opinion, but almost certainly before the current term ends in June. Alaskan moose hunter John Sturgeon, left, traveled to Washington, D.C., to watch the Supreme Court hear his case. Photo: Liz Ruskin/APRN.The justices of the U.S. Supreme Court this morning debated whether the Park Service can impose its rules on rivers that flow through Alaska’s national park units. The case began in 2007, when rangers in the Yukon-Charley Rivers National Preserve told Anchorage moose hunter John Sturgeon he couldn’t operate his hovercraft there. It has morphed into a debate on federal over-reach, the Park Service’s duty to protect rivers and the meaning of a single sentence in ANILCA, the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act.Download AudioSturgeon, a former state forester, was in the chamber today to hear the complex legal arguments spawned from that encounter with Park Rangers more than eight years ago.“Well, I think it was a great experience,” he said afterward. “I learned a lot. I don’t quite understand all the nuances. That’s what they attorneys are for. And it’s a privilege to be here.”The justices for a while seemed stumped by a single word: “Solely”. The context: When Congress passed ANILCA in 1980, it created a lot of new national park and preserve lands in Alaska. ANILCA says the Park Service can’t treat the state and private lands that were engulfed by these new conservation units as though they are park lands, too. ANILCA says non-federal lands — and waters — are exempt from rules that apply “solely” to federal land “within such units.” But defining the rules that don’t apply is a puzzle at the heart of the Sturgeon case.Sturgeon’s attorney, Matthew Findley, argued none of the Park Service rules apply to a navigable river, like where his client was, because the feds don’t own the river. Sturgeon lost in the lower courts. The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that non-federal areas of a park, like the river, are only exempt from Alaska-specific park rules. That court reasoned that the hovercraft ban is national — not written solely for application within Alaska park units — so it’s enforceable. Justice Samuel Alito pressed the government attorney to disavow that reading of “solely” in ANILCA.“Why don’t you concede that it’s wrong?” Alito asked. “It’s a ridiculous interpretation, is it not?”The packed chamber erupted in brief laughter.Valerie Brown, legal director of Trustees for Alaska. Photo Liz Ruskin/APRNJustice Sonia Sotomayor invited the government attorney, Assistant Solicitor General Rachel Kovner, to give the decision a kick.“It’s wrong,” Sotomayor said. “And walk it through, their argument, and tell me why they are wrong.”Outside the court, the attorneys involved talked to reporters.Valerie Brown, legal director of the environmental law firm Trustees for Alaska, wrote a brief backing the ParkService. She says the justices seemed to be rightly focused on navigable waters, not distracted by questions about private and state land.“Basically, the Park Service has always managed navigable water, since its inception,” she said. “And it clearly has the authority to do that (in Alaska) because ANILCA says to the Park Service: ‘Go and manage these rivers. You have to allow motorboats and you have to allow plane landings, but you make all the other decisions, you protect the park resources. You’re here to protect fish and wildlife.’”Attorney Jon Katchen wrote a brief supporting Sturgeon. Photo: Liz Ruskin/APRN.Jon Katchen wrote a brief supporting Sturgeon on behalf of Alaska’s congressional delegation.“I think it’s a complicated case with complicated issues,” he said. ” was definitely pleased that everyone seemed to be on board that the 9th Circuit decision has to go out the door.”He says the Supreme Court has a lot of options. It could overturn the 9th Circuit’s holding, and still rule in favor of the Park Service on other grounds. Or it could rule for Sturgeon. Or Katchen says, it could send the case back down and instruct the 9th Circuit try again.“I may be misreading the court, but certainly it seemed like two or three or four of them were a bit confused by the case and how they wanted to proceed,” he said. Supporters and family gather around John Sturgeon after the U.S. Supreme Court heard his case challenging the extent of Park Service authority in Alaska’s national parks and preserves.

Tariqul IslamBangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) on Monday paid last respect to its standing committee member and former minister, Tariqul Islam, who passed away in a city hospital on Sunday, by placing wreaths at his coffin, reports UNB.Tariqul’s coffin was taken to BNP’s Naya Paltan central office around 9:40am and kept it on a stage in front of it, enabling party leaders and activists to have a last glimpse of their late leader.BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir along with party senior leaders, on behalf of the party, placed wreaths on Tariqul’s coffin and draped it with a party flag as a mark of respect to him.In a brief address, Fakhrul said their party has lost a dedicated and seasoned leader like Tariqul when the nation and BNP are passing through a ‘critical’ time. “His demise is an irreparable loss…”He said Tariqul worked for the country and its people and fought for working people throughout his life without any compromise. “Our party has lost a learned leader of high character.”Later, his second namaz-e-janaza was held there joined by several hundred party leaders and activists.BNP secretary general Mirza Fakhrul Islam Alamgir, standing committee members Khandaker Mosharraf Hossain, Moudud Ahmed, Jamiruddin Sircar, vice-chairmen Alataf Hossain Chowdhury, Barkatullah Bulu, Shahjahan Omar, Mohammed Shahjahan, Zainul Abedin, Shamsuzzaman Dudu, AZM Zahid, Ahmed Azam Khan, chairperson’s adviser Amanullah Aman, Habibur Rahman Habib, and senior joint secretary general Ruhul Kabir Rizvi, among others, joined the janaza.BNP is observing a mourning day on Monday by hoisting black flags at its offices across the country. The party leaders and activists also wore black badges.Tariqul, who had long been suffering from heart, kidney diseases, diabetic and old-age complications, died at Apollo Hospital here on Sunday at the age of 73.Later, his body was taken to South Plaza of Parliament where his third janaza was held.His body will be flown to Jashore and his fourth janaza will be held at Jashore Eidgah ground after Asr prayers and then he will be buried at his family graveyard there.Tariqul had long been inactive in party politics due to his illness. He last attended BNP standing committee members’ meeting in February this year before Khaleda was sent to jail in Zia Orphanage Trust graft case.He was elected MP for four times from Jashore and performed as information and environment and forest minister during the BNP-led four-party government.When BNP formed the government in 1991, Tariqul was first made social welfare minister and then post and telecommunication minister.Born in Jashore in November 1946, Tariqul was the first elected chairman of Jashore municipality.

It was conducted by Nitha Mathew Joseph, Assistant Professor at the Cizik School of Nursing at UTHealth.“Research studies have shown that immigrants from India in the United States are at a high risk of diabetes and heart diseases because of their genetic predisposition and some insulin resistance,” said Joseph.But she added the risk goes even higher when they adopt a lifestyle that may not include a lot of exercise.“In India they may be eating a high carbohydrate and high sugar-containing diet but they may not be using their cars that much,” said Joseph. “They rely on the public transportation so they have to walk.”And Joseph said many Indian immigrants have demanding jobs that may keep them away from the gym. “They are highly educated and they know that they are at risk,” explained Joseph. “But they are not taking that much into consideration until they really get the disease condition and the complications associated with that.”And those complications could come with a huge cost.“The socio-economic status of Asian Indian immigrants living in the United States is very high,” said Joseph. “So if they don’t take care of their disease condition at the right time it can add a heavy economic burden due to the loss of income and the disability associated with these disease conditions.”Joseph said the study presents an opportunity for the healthcare community to develop culturally-tailored programs of diet and physical activity.She presented her findings to the 78th Scientific Sessions of the American Diabetes Association in Orlando, Florida.

Wireless extenders, repeaters and add-on antennas are some ways you can boost wireless signals to get coverage in hard-to-reach places. Another is to use the wires already in your walls. For example, SercoNet is developing a technology that sends Wi-Fi signals over your existing phone lines without affecting their use for voice or DSL internet access.SercoNet’s WirePlus solution works with 802.11 Wi-Fi, plugs into existing telephone outlets, and requires no software and minimal configuration. It essentially moves the radio signal from the Wi-Fi access point through the copper wires and retransmits it where needed on the other end. The receiver on the other end broadcasts the signal with virtually no loss of bandwidth. Dead spots can be eliminated without the need for complex hardware additions. Multiple units can be installed if there are multiple coverage problems.This technology could be especially useful as bandwidth-hungry VoIP over Wi-Fi applications become more common. Serco-Net is licensing the technology to manufacturing partners, and units should be arriving on the market by the time you read this.Need directions?With GPS on your PDA, maps are in the palm of your hand.GPS and PDAs make sen-sible partners. You get the navigation capabilities of a GPS system in an extremely portable, multipurpose handheld device. For those who don’t have PDAs yet, a couple of models have built-in GPS. The Hewlett-PackardiPAQ hw6515 Mobile Messenger is a $599 (all prices street) Pocket PC smartphone available with Cingular Wireless service. Asus, BlackBerry and Garmin also make PDAs with GPS receivers. Expect devices to run $500 to $700–this may sound pricey, but it can be more cost-effective than adding GPS later.If you like your PDA and just want to add GPS capabilities, you have several options. The $299 TomTomNavigator 5 is a Bluetooth hardware and software package that works with many Palm and Pocket PC devices. Features include spoken instructions, 3-D maps, PDA address book integration and touchscreen navigation. If your PDA already has a GPS receiver, a software-only package is available for $150. ALK Technologies, DeLormeand Pharosalso make add-on receiver and software sets. Expect to pay $200 to $300 to add GPS to your PDA, and of course, check first to see if the GPS manufacturer supports your particular PDA. 3 min read June 1, 2006 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.

The State Department had backed Shahin’s calls for a trial after spending nearly four years in prison. Shahin posted $1.4 million bail in July. He fled to Yemen, but was returned to Dubai earlier this month.His lawyer James Jaras says he met for several hours Monday with Shahin in a Dubai prison. Jaras says Shahin appeared in good health.Shahin was detained in 2008 as part of probes into alleged embezzlement at Deyaar Development. He has denied wrongdoing.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.

By Peter Michael and Annette ChrysostomouTHE national health scheme (Gesy) is a one-way street, President Nicos Anastasiades said on Friday amid claims from the Cyprus Medical Association (CyMA) that the public dialogue was being poisoned to smear private doctors, and as the number of specialists’ societies rose from eight to 13.Five medical groups on Friday added their voices to the ongoing opt-outs, something which the president said necessitated a dialogue with CyMA. He is due to meet them on Monday.Anastasiades and CyMA representatives are expected to discuss the issue of private medical practice in conjunction with Gesy. However, Anastasiades said that a two-tier system would be discriminatory to patients. The president said that he would listen to their opinions “but they should not deviate from the provisions of the law or create a two-tier service.”Earlier, CyMA said the public dialogue was being poisoned and was an attempt to smear and socially isolate the medical community. Earlier in the week, it denied that it was behind the unrest among private doctors.The medical association added that it would continue to express its views on the inadequacy of the proposed national health scheme and its inability to provide quality healthcare to the patient.CyMA said that in a public dialogue all interested parties have the right to express their opinion, and that the public references to the scheme have targetted the medical community.“It is disappointing that the officials of the Republic have chosen to damage its medical community,” it said.Anastasiades said recently that if private doctors were so concerned over the rates being offered to them by the state for their participation in Gesy, they were welcome to ask for the salary as stated by them in their tax returns.CyMA addressed the comment, saying their issues with Gesy were not related to tax evasion, but to the efficient use of taxpayers’ contributions for the introduction of administrative standards, which will affect the quality of health services provided by the state to citizens.“It is unacceptable for professional groups to be targetted by this common tactic used to disorient public opinion on the many impasses in dealing with Gesy and other reforms of the state.”The goal, CyMA said, was to create a public health system that would be well-designed and meet the needs of the patients and the medical community.In the midst of all the medical groups that were opting out of the plans, one private hospital, the Mediterranean Hospital of Cyprus announced Friday they would participate in Gesy.The hospital said that it shared the core values of the scheme and that at the epicentre was the patient. It will provide complete quality to services to patients, the hospital said in its announcement.Earlier Friday, the association of private hospitals, the oral and maxillofacial society and the association of private doctors were the three newest groups to join the ever-growing number of medical specialties who have advised their members not to back Gesy.The association of private hospitals said they lacked sufficient data about the plan and were seriously concerned over the details that they have been given. The doctors claimed they need to continue operating to same high standards they always have and are uncertain being part of Gesy would allow that.The vascular and endovascular surgery association announced their non-participation earlier in the day.Their decision was publicised just hours after the radiological association announced they too are not joining the scheme.Both associations said in statements that “the project is doomed to failure from the start”.They both also called on all stakeholders to listen to the concerns of the medial world and make the necessary changes for Gesy to become sustainable and functional.The vascular and endovascular association said they supported the creation of a modern and viable Gesy for the benefit of patients but expressed deep concern over “the gaps, ambiguities and, above all, the viability” of the proposed plan and the serious impact that its failure would have on the health of patients.The private radiologists urged Gesy chiefs to pay more attention to the requirements of their medical area.The price which has been set per medical treatment does not even cover the cost of the material and technological equipment, and thus the Health Insurance Organisation (HIO) in charge of private doctors’ applications to Gesy, needs to think again, the radiologists said.By Thursday, eight other private specialist groups had announced they would not back Gesy, rheumatologists, intensivists, urologists, nuclear medicine physicians, ear, nose and throat (ENT) doctors, endocrinologists, paediatricians and gastroenterologists. Cardiologists said its members would each decide individually. You May LikeYahoo SearchThe Early Signs Of Type 2 Diabetes.
