CALGARY — A San Francisco billionaire has challenged TransCanada boss Russ Girling to a live debate on the controversial Keystone XL oil pipeline.Tom Steyer, an ardent critic of the project and a major Democratic financier, says in an open letter to Girling that he wants to have a “real, substantial conversation” on the more than US$5.3-billion project.A TransCanada spokesman didn’t say if Girling would accept the challenge, but noted the project is nearly five years into a State Department environmental review process that the company hopes will be complete in the coming months.Shawn Howard added the project is expected to create thousands of jobs and displace U.S. imports of crude from unfriendly countries — assertions Steyer disputes in his letter.A draft State Department report earlier this year raised no major environmental red flags with the proposal, which had been rerouted to reduce some of the ecological impact in Nebraska.U.S. President Barack Obama — who has final say over the pipeline — has expressed skepticism that the pipeline will be a significant job creator.
Saudi Arabia on Sunday defended the execution of the maid for the death of an infant in her care and hit back at international criticism of last week’s beheading. “The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia categorically rejects any interference in its affairs or in the provisions of its judiciary under any justifications,” a statement carried by the official Saudi Press Agency read.Human rights groups and the Sri Lankan government had lobbied for leniency in the case of Rizana Nafeek, who was convicted of killing her employers’ son in 2005. The family said she strangled the boy, Kayed bin Nayef bin Jazyan al-Otaibi, after being asked to bottle-feed him, but Nafeek said the infant accidentally choked on milk. (Colombo Gazette) The mother of Sri Lankan housemaid Rizana Nafeek has refused to accept any money from Saudi Arabia or Saudi nationals, reports from Muttur said today.Saudi Arabia had offered to pay money to Rizana’s family after the maid had been executed in Saudi Arabia recently over the death of a Saudi baby in her care. However Rizana’s mother has said she will not accept any assistance from Saudi Arabia and does not want any of them coming to her house.

A total of 1,318,452 new cars rolled off UK production lines in the first 10 months of the year, the best performance since 2005 and up 2.8% year-to-date. Exports drove volumes in October, with foreign demand up 1.5%, while the domestic market fell marginally month-on-month.Mike Hawes, SMMT Chief Executive, said, “Despite a small drop in overall output last month, the industry has delivered a robust performance so far this year, particularly in terms of exports. Given the slowdown we’ve seen in several key global markets in recent months, UK automotive manufacturing still remains in a strong position.”

So this Government is going to go, put out an Expression of Interest (EoI) for a type of power plant that we have done no feasibility study on as to whether it is suitable for Guyana or not,” Jagdeo contended.Contrary to ExxonMobil’s position that it will not be commercially feasible to extract and sell natural gas, the Government has made it clear that it wants the fuel to power GPL’s generators.A local company had also said several of the sets at Kingston Power Station and all of those at the Vreed-en-Hoop Power Station can be converted to use natural gas.But Jagdeo said even if this is possible, the Government has pledged to the international community to have 100 per cent of its energy come from renewable resources by 2025.“This is contrary to that pledge. This is another broken promise. Even by a long stretch of the imagination, even if this project starts in 2020, how does that solve the blackouts now?” he questioned.And even while Government has stated that 25,000 more people will have access to electricity, Jagdeo said there is no clear plan to improve the efficiency of the service.“So, you’re bringing more demand on the system but you don’t have any generating capacity and the generating capacity is already stressed. And so this is what we get for planning,” he opined.Jagdeo did not stop there; adding that the current Government is placed in an even better position than that of the People’s Progressive Party (PPP), because under his presidency, the prices for oil were high.“They have collected over $20 billion in the two and half years they have been in office. I hope that the media ask them about the money… they never confirmed how much they collected because they did not adjust the prices of electricity downwards when the oil prices fell,” he claimed.The former Head of State said Government has no fixed plan to address the electricity situation in the country and has only given shallow explanations, noting that the problem will get worse.According to Jagdeo, the Administration has continuously uttered that they are “doing something” to rectify the constant power outages, but there’s never anything substantial or specific to support their claims.Moreover, he lambasted the Government further on their poor planning skills, highlighting that they have proclaimed that 25,000 more people will be benefiting from electricity in the near future, when there is no generating capacity and the current system is already stressed.Less than a week ago, the Private Sector Commission (PSC) minced no words in taking to task the Government-owned and operated GPL for the spate of power outages that have been registered throughout Guyana.According to the PSC, GPL, which is the only company providing the country with electricity, has provided no credible explanation to address the “series of unannounced and frequently prolonged power outages.”“To add insult to injury, the GPL recently from 2nd September to 5th November, 2017, announced a series of scheduled maintenance power cuts which, in Georgetown alone, amount to a total of 149 hours spread between 17 sections of the city. In addition, power cuts averaging about four hours each were scheduled for the Essequibo Coast, Berbice, East and West Bank Demerara, West Coast Demerara, Soesdyke and East Canjie,” said the PSC.Moreover, the PSC posited that “judging from this performance or, to be more accurate, absence of performance, GPL simply have neither the management nor the capacity to deliver a reliable power supply to the country and the Government has consistently failed to address this reality.“Guyana’s manufacturing and commercial sectors cannot function in these circumstances and, in this day and age at the exorbitant price that we are expected to pay for electricity, Guyana’s population should not be subjected to this punishment. As the Christmas season approaches, this has now become an even more pressing source of concern for the populace.” (Samuel Sukhnandan)
A committee of independent scientists will be created to review water monitoring data collected from Alberta’s oil sands region. “Understanding the impact of the oil sands industry on the watershed of northeastern Alberta is absolutely critical. We need to have total and complete assurance in data before we make decisions on how best to balance environmental protection with development. Albertans deserve to have this assurance as well,” said Environment Minister Rob Renner. As directed by Alberta Premier Ed Stelmach, the government is in the process of contacting scientists from a list of candidates brought forward by Dr. David Schindler and Alberta Environment experts to create a third-party committee to review environmental data. The committee is expected to be finalised within about a week.The focus of the committee will be to examine monitoring data and methodology of both government and academic research findings. They will also investigate whether data is consistent with historical values in the region and explain the relevance of any differences and gaps that may exist. The process is expected to be completed by February 2011.“We all agree that everyone wants the best information possible when it comes to the impacts of oil sands development,” said Renner. “By creating an independent review committee, I feel we are one step closer to having the clarity we all need.”Terms of Reference:Review the methods of the two papers published by Kelly et al (Schindler) in Proceedings of the National Assembly of Science for their ability to address the proportion of compound load from natural and industrial sources Review the data handling and statistical techniques applied Review the data presented within the context of historic data (from Government of Alberta and sources used by government) from these or similar representative sites in the region.

The worlds of business and politics were deeply intertwined in this year’s second quarter.The quarter’s biggest story, economically and politically, came on a late Saturday night in the last weekend of June. That’s when the Washington Senate adjourned without taking action on funding of the gargantuan Columbia River Crossing project that had bitterly divided Clark County residents.The county’s business booster groups and major employers saw the project’s collapse as a tragic loss of a once-in-a-lifetime public works project that would have fed countless payrolls. But some downtown businesses welcomed an end to years of uncertainty. Political opponents of the project and its light-rail component immediately began launching new ideas for transportation improvements other than rail, despite a lack of funding for any of the suggested alternatives.APRILo PeaceHealth suspends talks with Catholic Health Initiative on a business partnership.• Portland-based telecom company Integra announces plans to move to Vancouver in 2014.o Tesoro Corp. and Savage Companies propose opening an oil transfer facility at Port of Vancouver.MAYo Opening of BevMo and Total Wine & More liquor stores ramps up price competition.• Sharp Corp. consolidates operations into one building.o Fisher Investment discloses plans for second building in Camas.JUNE• United Grain, Longshore union dispute gains international attention.• Economic recovery continues with an increase in construction and declining unemployment.• Legislature ends without funding Columbia River Crossing, killing project.In many ways, the months of April, May and June delivered steady doses of good news in a county that has lagged the metropolitan region in economic recovery. Housing continued its strong recovery throughout the quarter. Portland-based Integra, a telecommunications company serving businesses in many states, announced plans to relocate headquarters — with hundreds of jobs — to east Vancouver in 2014. And Fisher Investments President Ken Fisher told The Columbian that his company would build a second building at its Camas site. While Fisher hasn’t moved his company’s headquarters from California, adding a new building strengthens the company’s presence and adds hundreds of skilled jobs.The unemployment rate dropped steadily and now hovers around 9 percent. The county added 2,800 jobs in May, and job growth increased to an annualized rate of 2.1 percent — much closer to a sustainable level that accounts for population growth.But not all news was good on the jobs front. Huge health care nonprofit PeaceHealth, based in Vancouver, abandoned its talks of a partnership with Colorado-based Catholic Health Initiative that could have brought more jobs to Clark County. United Grain Corp.’s lockout of International Longshore and Warehouse Union members, which began on Feb. 27, dragged on through
Hyderabad: City police deployed large number of police personnel at Koti Andhra Bank X road on Thursday in view of protest of Bajrangaldal at the premises. The Bajrangal activists are gathering in huge number to protest against the MIM leader Akbaruddin Owaisi comments.

ICC wants commentators to be moderate in their criticismsReutersThe ICC 2019 World Cup match between West Indies and Australia witnessed a spate of umpiring errors. This provoked commentator Michael Holding to severely criticise the on-field officials, that too, while on commentary. This has now led to a reaction with international cricket’s governing body sending emails to members of the official commentary team demanding a measure of restraint in their criticism.The match in question saw as many as four decisions from on-field umpires, which went against the West Indies team, being overturned when the batsmen of the side took the DRS option. There was also the instance of one of the umpires failing to notice a no-ball from one of the Aussie bowlers. The last instance of a wrong lbw decision prompted Holding to launch a tirade against the two men given the task of on-field umpiring – Ruchira Palliyaguruge of Sri Lanka and Chris Gaffaney of New Zealand.”I am sorry but the umpiring in this game has been atrocious. For one, even when I was playing and they (the umpires) were not as strict as they are now, you were allowed one appeal. You don’t appeal two, three, four times to the umpire. That is the first thing. They are being intimidated (by the appeals of Australian players), that means they are weak. This has been an atrocious bit of umpiring by both,” the former West Indian fast bowler thundered. Michael Holding was unhappy with the level of umpiring in the Aus-WI matchTwitterThis outburst from Holding comes as no surprise to all those who have listened to his commentary over the years. Known for being forthright and holding back no punches, the legendary fast bowler is both admired for his courage to address sensitive issues as well as criticised by some for going overboard at times.Over the years, Holding has been an integral part of English home summers of cricket, due to his association with British broadcasters Sky Sports. In the last few years, he has also provided commentary during South Africa’s home season for local broadcasters SuperSport. In the past also, Holding is known for lashing out at things he finds reprehensible. One thing can be said with certitude, things certainly are more interesting when the West Indian great is on air.

Citation: Insight into how pharmaceutical solvents diffuse through a human nail (2015, June 19) retrieved 18 August 2019 from https://phys.org/news/2015-06-insight-pharmaceutical-solvents-diffuse-human.html In a recent study, Wing Sin Chiu, Natalie A. Belsey, Natalie L. Garrett, Julian Moger, M. Begoña Delgado-Charro, and Richard H. Guy from the University of Bath and the University of Exeter developed a method to acquire real-time semi-quantitative data on solvent diffusion through a human nail using stimulated Raman scattering microscopy. Their research appears in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.Human skin, hair, and nails are made of a hard, fibrous protein called keratin. Keratin provides a protective barrier keeping unwanted compounds from easily entering the body. However, keratin’s ability to protect the body also makes it an obstacle for topical drug delivery. Up to now, it has only been possible to obtain time- and position-dependent data on the movement of chemicals through the outermost 20μm of the nail. In an effort to better understand the diffusion of key pharmaceutical solvents through a nail, Chiu et al. used stimulated Raman spectroscopy (SRS) to trace the movement of dimethylsulfoxide (DMSO), propylene glycol (PG), and water through several human nail samples.Stimulated Raman spectroscopy is an imaging technique that was first reported in 2008 for detecting small amounts of chemicals, such as pharmaceuticals or metabolites, within biological systems without having to use fluorescent labels. Since SRS is based on matching laser frequencies to chemical vibrational frequencies, it is able to neglect the environmental background, making it a good technique for non-invasive biomedical studies. Furthermore, SRS scan time is fast enough for real-time measurements. Explore further Journal information: Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences For D2O, the Raman wavelengths were tuned to the O-D stretching band at 2,500 cm-1. Signals were taken as a function of time (every 2.7 minutes after t=10 minutes). After about thirty-five minutes, D2O had diffused ~100μm into the nail. The authors report that this is the first time that this kind of rapid, real-time transport of water through a nail has been visualized.Studies with deuterated DMSO and PG showed that they took much longer to diffuse through the nail. While water took less than an hour to penetrate 100μm, after a day, DMSO and PG only penetrated 40-50μm into the nail.Data analysis showed that the solvents deviate from classical diffusion behavior as the time of diffusion increases. Quantitative analysis was performed by accounting for several factors, including nail curvature, sample movement, and solvent depletion at the surface. Scans were normalized to keratin’s –CH2 frequency and analyses showed no significant solvent depletion at the nail surface. For each of the solvents, as diffusion time increased, the concentration profile deviated from classical behavior (Fick’s Second Law). Based on calculations using experimental results, this behavior is characteristic of a time- and concentration-dependent diffusion coefficient. Additionally, the rapid diffusion of water compared to the other two solvents indicates that there is a likely a strong molecular size dependence on diffusion across the nail. Finally, SEM imaging confirmed that the solvents loosen the nail structure and increase nail roughness, indicating that the nail is weakened when exposed to the solvents for a long period of time, which may lead to increased solvent diffusion over time. Additional studies of the nanostructure of the nail may provide further insight as to why solvent diffusion into a human nail deviates from classical behavior.This paper reports for the first time real-time solvent behavior as it is absorbed into a human nail. These results elucidate certain factors in drug solvent and nail bed uptake that will help in drug discovery and the development of topical medicines for nail disease. Play Orthogonal views of D2O penetration into human nail as a function of time. Credit: PNAS, doi: 10.1073/pnas.1503791112 Keratin has a characteristic –CH2 stretch at 2,855 cm-1 that Chiu et al. used to normalize SRS signals from the nail samples. Studies were conducted using deuterated solvents to easily distinguish the solvent vibrational bands from those of the nail. Concentration is linearly related to SRS signal allowing for a semi-quantitative measurement of solvent diffusion. This technique is “semi-quantitative” because of signal attenuation from light scattering as sample depth increases. In this case, signals from deeper within the nail would underestimate the amount of chemical present because the signal is slightly weakened with increasing depth. More information: “Molecular diffusion in the human nail measured by stimulated Raman scattering microscopy” PNAS, DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1503791112AbstractThe effective treatment of diseases of the nail remains an important unmet medical need, primarily because of poor drug delivery. To address this challenge, the diffusion, in real time, of topically applied chemicals into the human nail has been visualized and characterized using stimulated Raman scattering (SRS) microscopy. Deuterated water (D2O), propylene glycol (PG-d8), and dimethyl sulphoxide (DMSO-d6) were separately applied to the dorsal surface of human nail samples. SRS microscopy was used to image D2O, PG-d8/DMSO-d6, and the nail through the O-D, -CD2, and -CH2 bond stretching Raman signals, respectively. Signal intensities obtained were measured as functions of time and of depth into the nail. It was observed that the diffusion of D2O was more than an order of magnitude faster than that of PG-d8 and DMSO-d6. Normalization of the Raman signals, to correct in part for scattering and absorption, permitted semiquantitative analysis of the permeation profiles and strongly suggested that solvent diffusion diverged from classical behavior and that derived diffusivities may be concentration dependent. It appeared that the uptake of solvent progressively undermined the integrity of the nail. This previously unreported application of SRS has permitted, therefore, direct visualization and semiquantitation of solvent penetration into the human nail. The kinetics of uptake of the three chemicals studied demonstrated that each altered its own diffusion in the nail in an apparently concentration-dependent fashion. The scale of the unexpected behavior observed may prove beneficial in the design and optimization of drug formulations to treat recalcitrant nail disease. Compact structure of human nail revealed using red and green fluorescent dyes. Credit: Dr. Wing Sin Chiu. (Phys.org)—One of the biggest difficulties in treating nail disease is finding a topical drug that adequately penetrates through the nail. While some improvements in nail drug delivery have been made, they have been slow-going and still pose difficulties in treatment. A better understanding of drug delivery and solvent diffusion is needed.

Kolkata: The family members of a 51-year-old woman, who died of alleged medical negligence at Medica Superspecialty Hospital, lodged a complaint with the West Bengal Clinical Establishment Regulatory Commission (WBCERC).In his complaint, the victim’s husband Pradip Paul mentioned that the patient was wrongly treated during her dialysis in the hospital. He lodged specific complaint against Dr Anupam Roy, who treated the patient. WBCERC has started a detailed probe into the incident. Also Read – Rain batters Kolkata, cripples normal lifeThe victim, Sukla Paul, a resident of Dakshin Dinajpur was admitted to the hospital on 13 July with kidney-related ailments.It was learnt that the patient, a known case of hypertension with chronic kidney disease, attended Nephrology OPD on July 13. The patient was kept on mechanical ventilation and hemodialysis had been conducted on her for last the two weeks.According to the press statement issued by the hospital authorities, the patient was being treated for respiratory failure due to Acute Respiratory Distress Syndrome and severe co-agulopathy with renal failure. Also Read – Speeding Jaguar crashes into Mercedes car in Kolkata, 2 pedestrians killedThe hospital also claimed that the patient was in a critical condition when she was admitted to Medica. “Despite our best efforts, the patient could not be saved and she passed away on July 29,” said the press statement.According to the hospital authorities, the patient had an uneventful hemodialysis procedure after which she was admitted and kept on observation as she complained of swelling in right side of her neck and difficulty in breathing. Post-procedure, her vitals were normal and chest X-Ray did not reveal any significant abnormalities. She was transferred to the Intensive Care Unit (ICU). It was noticed that she had a hematoma on the right side of the neck around the initial puncture site, which was managed with usual conservative methods.The patient’s blood investigations revealed low hemoglobin levels with abnormal clotting parameters, for which she was transfused blood. Cardio Thoracic and Vascular Surgery (CTVS) was consulted for suspected neck hematoma and they advised a CT Angiogram of the neck and to continue supportive care.She was continued on regular dialysis and regular consultations with CTVS team, Critical Care Team and a Hematologist. Medical Boards were contacted on multiple occasions in presence of consultants from different specialities, along with the patient’s next of kin. After detailed investigations, it was found that she has a rare form of Coagulation Disorder due to preformed antibody and inhibitors against blood clotting factors.
