first_img Updated Mar 23rd 2019, 6:31 PM TAOISEACH LEO VARADKAR has said the plan that will avoid a hard border in the event of a no-deal Brexit is “very rough and very preliminary”.Speaking to reporters at the Fine Gael National Conference in Wexford today, the Taoiseach reiterated that if the UK leaves the EU with no deal, then “difficult discussions” will be needed with the European Commission and the UK on the border issue. “First of all you would expect the British government to stand its commitments in the December 2017 declaration where they agreed they would maintain full regulatory alignment with the European Union if that was necessary to avoid a hard border.“We know from the UK government’s own plans that if we did end up in a no-deal scenario that they would treat Northern Ireland separately from day one,” Varadkar said.Last night, Tánaiste Simon Coveney said there have been no formal discussions with the European Commission about how to prevent a hard border in Ireland, though he said they have “thought about” it.The only way to avoid it would be to have regulatory alignment, but he said the they are still advocating for the backstop.Today, Varadkar described the plan to avoid the hard border was “a sketch” at this stage, pointing out the regularity alignment, which is contained in the backstop, is what it looks like.“The more and more you get into it, the more and more it looks like the backstop. That’s how we ended up with the backstop in the first place.”Pressure is mounting on all sides at the deadline dates for Brexit are pushed out. However, questions about the possibility of a hard border remain.Theresa May has said a third vote on her Brexit deal may not happen next week if there is insufficient support to approve it. It was agreed on Thursday that date the UK would leave the EU would be delayed until the 22 May if the deal was passed.However, if the deal is rejected, the date would be delayed by two weeks until 12 April.In a letter to MPs yesterday evening, May said she would only bring her withdrawal agreement before the House of Commons if there was sufficient support for it. May laid out four “clear choices” facing Parliament: Image: Sam Boal Short URL 27,958 Views Saturday 23 Mar 2019, 6:31 PM Source: Virgin Media News/Twitter Share237 Tweet Email 44 Comments By Cónal Thomascenter_img Plans to avoid a hard border in a no-deal scenario are ‘very rough’, says Varadkar Thousands of protesters are due to march on London today demanding a second Brexit referendum.

Watch his exclusive interview with @GavReilly in #VMNews at 5.30.— Virgin Media News (@VirginMediaNews) March 23, 2019 Revoke Article 50 – essentially cancelling Brexit – which May said “would betray the result of the referendum.”Leave with no deal on 12 April. Request another extension before 12 April which would mean Britain taking part in European elections. Approve May’s deal next week. Bear in mind House Speaker John Bercow has said he won’t allow it to be put to a vote unless substantial changes are made to it. “If it appears that there is sufficient support and the speaker permits it, we can bring the deal back next week and if it is approved we can leave on May 22,” May wrote to MPs. But she said if there was not sufficient support or the house rejected it, Britain could ask for another extension and take part in the European Parliament elections, adding: “I strongly believe that… would be wrong”.Speaking to Virgin Media News this evening, Taoiseach Leo Varadkar said he has some sympathy for May, but not when it comes to politics. “I’ve enormous sympathy for her and enormous respect for her. Being the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom at this time is an exceptionally difficult job, especially with the divided parliament and a divided government,” Varadkar said.“At the same time, let’s not deny an obvious truth. This problem, Brexit, is entirely one of their own creation,” he said.Personal sympathy, yes. Political sympathy, very hard to have sympathy in those circumstances. ‘Anything is possible’Speaking to reporters in Brussels on Friday at the close of the EU summit, EU Council President Donald Tusk said: “Until April 12, anything is possible.”Brexit protesters are set to march in London today demanding a second referendum. Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon has said she would join while deputy Labour leader Tom Watson has said he would back the Prime Minister’s deal but only if she agrees to hold a referendum on it. “The EU’s decision to postpone things until at least 12 April has opened a window and those of us who oppose Brexit must seize the chance it offers,” Scotland’s Sturgeon said. The ‘Put It To The People’ march is due to start at midday and will finish at the Houses of Parliament. Meanwhile, Tánaiste Simon Coveney has said there have been no formal discussions with the European Commission about how to prevent a hard border in Ireland while the DUP has criticised the UK government, and called the delay to the date by which the UK leaves the European Union “a humiliation”.With reporting from Christina Finn at the Fine Gael National Conference in Wexford, Hayley Halpin and © AFP 2019  As the clock ticks down, get all the best Brexit news and analysis in your inbox: Mar 23rd 2019, 10:14 AM Image: Sam Boallast_img read more

Especially, the furious Pakistani fans started to criticise Shoaib Malik as he is a senior in the team. Malik later clarified that it was on June 13, all the pictures and images were taken on that day and expressed his grievances for the Pakistani media as they were spreading such stories of the players.When will Pak media be accountable for their credibility by our courts?!Having served my country for +20 years in Intl Cricket, it’s sad that I have to clarify things related to my personal life.

The most awaited match became a one-sided affair as the Indian team did not let Pakistan get into the game. Indian opener Rohit Sharma scored yet another ton in the tournament. He scored 140 runs and was supported by Virat Kohli and KL Rahul.

The day before the match against India, all the players were in their hotel rooms by curfew time,” the spokesperson said.The Pakistan cricket fans were shocked after their humiliating defeat at the hands of India. As they were looking for reasons for this loss, some videos and images surfaced on social media and they went viral. A video showed Pakistani all-rounder Shoaib Malik along with his wife and Indian tennis star Sania Mirza and other Pakistani cricketers Wahab Riaz and Imam-ul Haq enjoying shisha and having burgers and pizzas at a lounge in Manchester and claimed to have been shot on the eve of the mega-clash.

The test and subsequent shipment of the resulting Mo-99 to NorthStar’s Madison facility is another milestone in the establishment of domestic production of the vital medical radioisotope.Mo-99 is the parent isotope of technetium-99m (Tc-99m), the most widely used radioisotope in medical diagnostic imaging. Currently, nearly all Mo-99 is generated using weapons-useable highly enriched uranium (HEU) at aging facilities located outside of the United States, leading to chronic product shortages and creating safety and national security concerns.NorthStar is developing two technologies for producing Mo-99 from the stable isotope molybdenum-98 without the use of HEU — a neutron capture process using the MURR facility and an electron accelerator process. NorthStar is making significant progress toward becoming the first commercial producer of Mo-99 in the United States in more than 25 years.On May 4, the aliquoting system was used to fill several depleted uranium (DU) source vessels and one tungsten source vessel with Mo-99. The DU source vessels were then packaged and shipped to NorthStar’s facility in Madison, where they arrived in good condition early on May 5 for inspection and recycling. Approximately 400 curies of Mo-99 were created for the test run; a curie is a unit of radioactivity, with one curie being roughly the activity of 1 gram of the radium isotope Ra-226.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Content News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | June 07, 2019 Amsterdam University Medical Center Wins MR Solutions’ Image of the Year Award The Amsterdam University Medical Center has won MR Solutions’ Image of the Year 2019 award for the best molecular… read more News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 26, 2019 NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes Awarded $30 Million by U.S. Department of Energy NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes LLC has been awarded $15 million in a cooperative agreement with the U.S. Department of… read more X-ray images such as the one on the left fail to indicate many cases of advanced bone destruction caused by multiple myeloma, says the author of new guidelines on imaging for patients with myeloma and related disorders.

This collaboration, which includes a 10-year maintenance service, marks the first multi-room PBT application in the nation’s capital. This will be Hitachi’s fifth PBT system in North America.The next-generation system “Probeat”, which comes with intensity modulated proton therapy (IMPT) and cone-beam computed tomography (CT), will have improved spot scanning capability in all three gantry-type treatment rooms, along with a fixed irradiation room dedicated to cancer research.In December 2007, Hitachi was the first company in the U.S. to clear U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Premarket Notification Special 510(k) for the “Probeat” system with its spot scanning irradiation technology. The same spot scanning system has already been installed at Nagoya Proton Therapy Center and Hokkaido University in Japan. In fiscal year 2015 (ending March 2016), one of Hitachi’s new PBT site is planning to start treatment of patients.Unlike conventional scattering technology, spot scanning technology delivers narrow beams to the tumor and the complex tumor shape can be irradiated through repetitive beam delivery with quick position change. Spot scanning technology has been achieved by advancing the uniform quality beam extraction technology from the accelerator and beam control technology with high accuracy.For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The top piece of content in July was a video interview explaining how Princess Margaret Cancer Center is using machine learning to create automated treatment plans.

Click here to review the finalists and to make your selection. The winning organization will receive 26,000 euros from EOCA (about $29,200) to help fund its project. The Corcovado Foundation is the only finalist from Central America. The Corcovado Foundation aims to “increase awareness and understanding of the impact of single-use plastic through education. […] The focus is to reduce solid waste through proper disposal and substantial reduction of single-use plastics ultimately making ‘Osa Free of Plastic.’”The Health Ministry says that Costa Rica generates 4,000 tons of waste every day, 11% of which is plastic that ends up in rivers and oceans. According to the United Nations Environment Programme, “half of all plastic produced is designed to be used only once — and then thrown away.” Click here to vote.Visit the Corcovado Foundation’s donation page at Amigos of Costa Rica to learn more and support the foundation.

first_imgBy Poly PantelidesSTATE DOCTORS yesterday gave the health ministry a 15-day ultimatum to reconsider plans to reduce their overtime pay.If the health ministry fails to respond, government doctors will go on a four-hour warning strike within a fortnight followed by a 48-hour strike, said Maro Kontou, head of the state doctors’ union PASYKI.Maro Kontou asked the health ministry to “start and complete negotiations before Christmas” and revise decisions relating to changing the doctors’ shift system.The government agreed with the troika of lenders to overhaul the health sector’s overtime wages and eventually pay healthcare employees a normal rate for working between 7am and 7pm. As a first step, doctors are no longer being paid overtime for working between 7am and 4.30pm. PASYKI had agreed to that step, which effectively suspended overtime pay between 3pm and 4.30pm, but later came out to say they had done so as a sign of “good will” on the understanding the measure would be temporary.PASYKI warned against further cuts last week.Kontou told the Cyprus News Agency there were unresolved questions over doctors working in regional health centres and outpatient clinics. Regional health centres are staffed by visiting doctors who see patients on a weekly or bi-weekly basis, and usually shut down in August while the doctors who normally staff them go on holiday.According to Kontou, doctors working in rural areas could not be on duty every other day, because it would be “inhumane and surpass the number of working hours set by the EU for this sector”. She did not clarify what she meant, though on the face of it, the health ministry is well within EU guidelines which set maximum limits of 14 hours in any 24-hour period and 72-hours in any seven-day period, as long as total working time over seven days does not exceed 48 hours. The directive also allows exceptions for healthcare as well as collective agreements.Kontou questioned why state doctors were expected to work past the working hours of other civil servants and that doctors in health centres already had to work between 7.30am and 3.30pm.Some doctors have been paid the value of their whole annual wage in overtime over the course of a year, according to the auditor-general who has been issuing warnings for years in relation to overtime arrangements in the health sector.You May LikeGundry MD ProPlant Complete Shake SupplementCalling All Carnivores!
