Hawke labels Coalitions parental leave plan poor policy

first_imgShadow treasurer Joe Hockey has mounted a passionate defence of Tony Abbott’s paid parental leave scheme and branded dissident Liberal backbencher Alex Hawke a lone voice in the Coalition in wanting the commitment scrapped. Mr Hockey said the policy would boost participation and deliver a “massive benefit” to small business. Mr Hawke, the Liberal MP for Mitchell in north west Sydney, who is of Greek background, insists he is not the only Coalition MP who is concerned about the policy, which offers new mothers 26 weeks of leave on full pay, up to a maximum wage of $150,000 a year, to be funded by a 1.5 per cent levy on the country’s 3200 biggest companies. This levy was to have been fully offset by a 1.5 per cent cut in company tax, but it has since been replaced with the promise of a ‘modest’ company tax cut. Abbott’s leave scheme compares with Labor’s taxpayer-funded scheme offering 18 weeks parental leave at the minimum wage. “Certainly within the Coalition there is widespread concern that in this climate it is unaffordable as a policy,” Mr Hawke said. “I think that’s been the case for some time.” Insisting it would not be an issue for the Coalition to ditch its scheme ahead of the September election – despite Mr Abbott referring to it as a ‘signature’ policy – Mr Hawke said: “I think this isn’t that popular with the electorate. And I tend to find people are pretty realistic that we can’t afford big new taxes and levies at the moment.” But Mr Hockey dismissed Mr Hawke’s critique in a doorstop interview after his address to the IPA, saying it was not shared by his colleagues.

Iditarod set to start under a cloud of scandals

first_imgWade Marrs, mushing along the Iditarod 2016 Trail on the outskirts of Nome. (Photo: Laura Collins, KNOM)The Iditarod Trail Sled Dog Race kicks off this Saturday, as mushers and their teams begin cross a thousand miles of the Alaska wilderness.But this year the event is mired in scandals: Fallout from a dog doping fiasco, a musher mutiny, and unprecedented pressure from protest groups. All of which, according to a leaked report, are putting the event’s future in dire jeopardy.Listen nowSaturday marks the “ceremonial start” of the race, when the streets of downtown Anchorage fill with at least 1,072 yapping sled dogs. Looking on from the snowy sidewalks are tourists, townies, and mushing fans outfitted in their finest furs. The festivities arrive at the tail end of the city’s annual Fur Rondy, a week of festivities hearkening back to the yearly rendezvous among fur trappers, where pelts and antlers are sold openly in the streets. By the time the Iditarod kicks off, the vibe is somewhere between a parade and a dog pageant, with notes of a folksy rural carnival.The next day, dozens of competitors set out on the grueling journey over snowy mountains, icy rivers and frozen tundra toward the tiny town of Nome on the Bering Sea coast. As the race has grown increasingly competitive in recent years, top teams make the trek in between eight and nine days.But this year’s race is up against extra challenges.Multiple controversies have crashed down all at once — even driving one of mushing’s stars to post a 17-minute video on YouTube lashing out at race leadership.Dallas Seavey, arriving second to Ruby just after the sun set Wednesday night. (Photo: Zachariah Hughes, Alaska Public Media.)“The Iditarod can try to run me over, they can try to throw me under the bus,” Dallas Seavey said, speaking directly into the camera in the video, posted October 23rd of last year. “They’re going to find out I don’t fit under the bus.”Seavey is a mushing wunderkind, having won the race four times before age 30.But since last fall, Seavey has been embroiled in the sport’s first high-profile doping scandal after it came out that some of his dogs tested positive for a banned painkiller at the end of last year’s race.Seavey vigorously denies that he drugged his team, something other top mushers have backed him up on. He faults the Iditarod’s board of directors for mishandling the investigation, hurting his reputation in the process.“This is part of this race that is a cancer right now,” Seavey said in the video, alluding to the Iditarod Trail Committee’s board. “There is a corruption in this race.”Seavey snubbed this year’s Iditarod, and is competing in a Norwegian race that runs at the same time. He’s also pushed back on the damning doping narrative by hiring a public relations firm, casting doubt on science behind the drug tests, and aggressively defending his record in the press.So how did high levels of Tramadol, a widely prescribed opioid, get into four of Seavey’s dogs within hours of his arrival in Nome last year? Theories abound.“I believe this was given to my dogs maliciously,” Seavey said. “I think that’s the most likely option.”The idea that a saboteur drugged Seavey’s dogs is accepted by many in Alaska’s mushing community. Some believe it could have been an unintentional accident. Some think it might have a been a rival competitor. And others point to animal rights activists, who have done more in recent years to take down the Iditarod’s public image.Leading that charge is People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, or PETA. The group says it did not have any personnel in Alaska last year, and condemns dogs being given banned substances. But the group is escalating its tactics by leaning harder than ever on corporate sponsors to drop their support for the event.“One of the biggest lies that the Iditarod community has tried to sell the public is that these dogs aren’t like the dogs we share our homes with, and it’s not true,” Colleen O’Brien, a spokesperson for PETA, said.The group wants for the Iditarod to become a race without dogs, saying too many animals have died as a result of competition, and that mushing is fundamentally abusive. It claims that sponsor flight is taking a toll on the Iditarod’s financial health. And this year, for the first time ever, they are sending protesters to Alaska, with demonstrations planned in Anchorage and at the finish in Nome.On top of all that, earlier in February a prominent group of race veterans called for the president of the board of directors to resign immediately. A letter was sent by members of the Iditarod Official Finisher’s Club, alleging his mismanagement and conflicts of interest they say are jeopardizing the whole sport.The demand came on the heels of a confidential report by the Foraker group commissioned by the race’s main sponsors leaked to the press. It pointed to many of the same problems, saying the board needs major reforms for companies to remain comfortable financing it. Following a closed door meeting, ITC board members voted unanimously to leave president Andy Baker (who’s brother, John Baker, is a champion Iditarod musher) at the helm for the time being.“Everybody wants the race to do better,” Baker said to reporters after the meeting. “Our whole focus is we want to have a safe race. We want dogs to be safe, we want mushers to be safe, and we want a successful race that’s good for Alaska.”Baker says the board is planning to revise its governing rules in the spring, once this year’s race is over. That opens the door for reforming leadership practices criticized by the IOFC and Foraker report.Many are pining for the old days, when the Iditarod was more like a weeks-long wilderness adventure than a race.“There’s a big part of me that feels that way,” Stan Hooley, Iditarod’s CEO, said. “Unfortunately I’m in the business, and in the role of working to grow this race.”Some people say that means the Iditarod isn’t as fun—that the race doesn’t resemble the state-wide celebration it used to be. But others say the global audience and increase in corporate money that it has drawn could be what carries dog mushing on into the future.If you want more news on all things mushing, you can subscribe to the Iditapod, a podcast about the Iditarod from Alaska Public Media and KNOM Radio.last_img read more

Law Enforcement Reform Group Begins Work in Annapolis

first_imgThe Public Safety and Policing Workgroup held its inaugural meeting on June 8, in Annapolis. Co-chairs Sen. Catherine Pugh (D-Baltimore City) and Del. Curt Anderson (D-Baltimore City) presided over the first meeting. (Photo by Roberto Alejandro)The new Public Safety and Policing Workgroup of the Maryland General Assembly has begun holding hearings on law enforcement practices in Maryland. The group is moving towards generating a slate of bills for next year’s legislative session to help improve relations between police departments and communities across the state.Co-chaired by majority leader Sen. Catherine Pugh (D-Baltimore City), and chair of the Baltimore City delegation to the House, Del. Curt Anderson (D-Baltimore City), the workgroup received an overview of Maryland law enforcement from the Department of Legislative Services. There was also a presentation on the state’s role in certifying police officers from representatives of the Police and Correctional Training Commissions, at the first meeting, held on June 8.According to the presentation by the Department of Legislative Services, Baltimore City is alone among Maryland’s 24 political subdivisions (23 counties plus Baltimore City) in possessing a crime rate that exceeds 4,800 crimes per 100,000 residents. It is also the only subdivision whose police department does not receive direct state aid, a function of an agreement between the city and the state in which the latter foots the bill for the Baltimore City Detention Center and Central Booking, but at the cost of not giving any direct aid to the Baltimore Police Department.The workgroup’s most pointed questions, however, were reserved for J. Michael Zeigler and Albert Liebno, executive and deputy directors, respectively, for the Maryland Police and Correctional Training Commissions.Under questioning from both chairs, Zeigler testified that while all law enforcement agencies are required to have some form of psychological evaluation as part of their training and recruitment process, individual departments are responsible for determining the standards recruits must meet in order to pass the evaluation, as well as who performs the evaluation itself. There is also no requirement that police officers receive more than an initial psychological evaluation.“They’re required by law to recertify with their weapon every year, why shouldn’t we also want to make sure they’re not crazy every year?” asked Anderson rhetorically in comments to the AFRO after the initial workgroup hearing.Anderson said he expects a slate of bills to come out of the workgroup that will hopefully carry the bipartisan sponsorship of all 22 committee members, helping to give the recommended pieces of legislation more traction heading into the 2016 legislative session. Anderson also expects recommendations to amend Maryland’s controversial law enforcement officers bill of rights (LEOBR).“There’s going to be big changes,” said Anderson. “We already have some concessions from the Fraternal Order of Police about changes that they would agree with in the LEOBR, for instance, making the trial boards more transparent. Allowing people to be there. Allowing the results to be posted. Changing the 180 day rule, so that a person can file a suit against a police officer in more than 180 days. So there’s a lot of low hanging fruit that can get done, but there may be some more comprehensive things that we can do as well.”Pugh was a bit more cautious in making predictions about what might come out of the work group, but stressed the importance of having diverse representation among the workgroup’s members because it gives more credibility to whatever its end product ultimately is. “I’m not sure what the end result will be, but what we do know is that we have to hear from the public, we need to hear from the police department, and we need to hear from some experts in terms of how we present – if we present – legislation moving forward,” said Pugh.The next meeting of the Public Safety and Policing Workgroup will take place at 1 p.m. in Annapolis (6 Bladen St., room 101) on June 23, where it will hear testimony on recruitment and hiring practices for law enforcement in the state.last_img read more

Invision Diagnostics performs over 8,000 mammograms annually in three advanced mobile mammography coaches in Asheville, Charlotte, Raleigh, and other locations throughout the Southeast.VolparaEnterprise software delivers key performance indicators for over 100 performance and quality metrics, including patient positioning and compression, which are widely viewed as the causes of most clinical image deficiencies, and associated with delayed detection of breast cancer. The software enables Invision Diagnostics’ employees to perform rapid quality control checks that help optimize the productivity and efficiency of imaging resources. This in turn helps decrease costs through the reduction of retakes, increase employee effectiveness and enhance the patient experience. Additionally, VolparaEnterprise software has been designed to help facilities comply with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA’s) new EQUIP (Enhancing Quality Using the Inspection Program) initiative.”VolparaEnterprise software will ensure our patients receive the best mammogram possible by enabling us to monitor quality for every single image. It is also an invaluable tool used to advance technologists’ positioning skills and to support our quality improvement programs,” said Mike Dyer, CEO, Invision Diagnostics.VolparaDensity, one of the clinical applications within VolparaEnterprise, will provide Invision Diagnostics’ radiologists with automated, objective volumetric breast density assessments and a breast density category which has been shown to correlate to the Breast Imaging-Reporting and Data System (BI-RADS) 4th and 5th editions.Volpara Solutions will demonstrate VolparaEnterprise and its entire suite of volumetric breast imaging tools at the Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA) 2018 Annual Meeting and Exposition, July 22-25 in Orlando.”As a radiologist, my ability to detect breast cancer is limited by the quality of the mammogram images that are presented. VolparaEnterprise gives us the ability to monitor the technical quality of every mammogram performed in our mobile coaches. This provides our patients and their physicians with the confidence that they will consistently receive a high-quality mammogram,” said Kenneth Fox, M.D., chief medical officer, Invision Diagnostics. “Additionally, with objective breast density assessment, we can more accurately identify high-risk patients that may require adjuvant screening.”For more information: www.volparasolutions.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Shimadzu FluoroSpeed X1 Walkaround AHRA 2019Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 1:25Loaded: 11.42%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -1:25 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Fellow students shave in solidarity with sick classmate

first_imgSTUDENTS and faculty members of the Xenion High School in Paralimni got together and shaved their heads in solidarity with 12-year-old Antonis, a fellow student, who lost his hair due to chemotherapy.The event took place at the school’s grounds, with faculty members volunteering to shave the heads of some of the students. The group shaving was held as a surprise for the 12-year-old, who got permission from the hospital to attend.According to Antonis’ brother and sister, “he was ashamed that he lost his hair and was hesitant to appear in public,” which prompted his fellow students to go ahead with the surprise.The 12-year-old was accompanied to the school by his father, who was also surprised when he came across students shaving their heads in support of his son.Antonis’ sister was also present at the event, telling the press “with so much love and support my brother received, Im sure he will be fine.”The 12-year-old was diagnosed with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma. He travelled to Germany to receive treatment earlier this year and is currently receiving treatment at the Makarios Hospital. He is expected to head back to Germany in 10 days.The father made a statement to Sigmalive saying that he was told by doctors that his son had an 80 per cent survival chance.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoAngels And EntrepreneursRobert Herjavec Announce Venture Could Make You RichAngels And EntrepreneursUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoIsraeli rape suspects freed, woman who alleged assault arrested (Updated)Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
