Valerie Harper To Join Lung Cancer Foundation of Americas Bring On The

first_imgActress and lung cancer advocate Valerie Harper and her husband Tony Cacciotti, actor Elliott Gould, and leaders in entertainment, politics, business and medicine will come together at the Lung Cancer Foundation of America’s (LCFA) “Lung Cancer – Bring on the Change!” event on Sunday, September 29, 2013 from 5 PM – 7 PM.The evening is hosted by producer Marta Kauffman and composer Michael Skloff in their Hancock Park home. Ms. Harper, who is currently fighting lung cancer that has occurred in the lining of her brain, is the special guest speaker. The evening is designed to bring attention to and raise funding for lung cancer, the USA’s number one cancer killer for both men and women.“It means so much to Tony and me to be able to support LCFA in its efforts to raise awareness and research funding for lung cancer. I’m still here, living, laughing, loving, dancing because of lung cancer research — but the only way I can be here in six months or six years is through new treatment options, or hopefully a cure,” said Ms. Harper.Kim Norris, a lung cancer widow and the president and co-founder of LCFA added, “Thanks to Marta and Michael, Val and Tony, and all the other co-hosts and supporters, we’ve had an overwhelming response to this event. I believe that changing the course of this devastating disease is absolutely possible. Millions of people have been deeply affected by lung cancer but because of an overall 5-year survival rate of only 16%, there are few survivors to stand up and speak out in support of research funding for the disease. That’s why this evening is so very important, and inspirational.”Guests will learn that lung cancer is the USA’s leading cancer killer, killing almost twice as many women as breast cancer and three times as many men as prostate cancer. The poor survival rate for lung cancer is a direct result of the lack of funding for lung cancer research. It is estimated that over 60% of new lung cancer diagnoses are in non-smokers – a combination of 45-50% former smokers (many who quit 10, 20, even 30 years prior to the onset of lung cancer) and 15% of people who have never smoked. Guests will be introduced to lung cancer advocates like Val, lung cancer researchers and the work of LCFA — an organization that exists to advocate for research funding.Find out more here.Source:PR Newswirelast_img read more

Trudeau government inaction on interim report concerns commissioners of MMIWG inquiry

first_imgDennis WardAPTN Face to FaceAs the National Inquiry into Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls nears its end later this year the chief commissioner says it still has concerns about the Trudeau governments action so far on its previously released interim report.Which makes Marion Buller aware the recommendations in the inquiry’s final report can’t be ignored.It raises a lot of concerns for us,” says Buller, chief commissioner of the inquiry.“The interim report was ground-breaking in the work that was contained in it. So, of course it doubles our concern about framing our recommendations in a way that will be acted upon.”Buller was joined by commissioners Michele Audette and Brian Eyolfson on Face to Face with host Dennis Ward Tuesday night.Their interim report was releases in early November 2017.They acknowledged they have “more than one new level of frustration” with the federal government.Commissioners also expressed their disappointment with the inquiry being timed to the next federal election.“I’m trying to think of polite words to use but horribly disappointing not only to us but to Indigenous people and non-Indigenous people all across Canada,” says Buller. “We view this issue or issues of violence against Indigenous women and girls to be so serious and so important to all Canadians that it should have survived an election cycle.”Cases of missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls have continued as the inquiry has crossed the country.News broke of the death of Mary Madeline Yellowback while the inquiry was in Winnipeg holding hearings.The body of the 33-year-old woman from God’s River in Manitoba was discovered at a Winnipeg recycling depot on Sept. 28.Police are investigating Yellowback’s death as suspicious.“It is just a reminder that we have to keep going with this very important work and get the important recommendations out there to ensure that government makes the necessary changes,” says Commissioner Brian Eyolfson.Final submissions to the inquiry by Parties with Standing will take place in Ottawa from Dec. 10-14.The final report is due in April 30, 2019.dward@aptn.ca@denniswardnewslast_img read more

Billionaire Icahn invests another 500 million in Apple arguing the stock remains

by Michael Liedtke, The Associated Press Posted Jan 23, 2014 2:01 pm MDT Billionaire Icahn invests another $500 million in Apple, arguing the stock remains a bargain AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email FILE – In this Oct. 11, 2007 file photo, private equity investor Carl Icahn speaks at the World Business Forum in New York. Icahn said Thursday, Jan. 23, 2014, he has purchased $500 million worth of Apple stock in the past couple of weeks to bring his total holdings in the company to more than $3.6 billion of shares. (AP Photo/Mark Lennihan, File) SAN FRANCISCO – Outspoken billionaire Carl Icahn has tossed another bushel of Apple stock into his investment portfolio and suggested some new products as he tries to persuade the iPhone maker to do more to lift its market value.In an attempt to give his arguments more credence, Icahn disclosed that he invested another $500 million in Apple Inc. in a series of purchases made Thursday.With the latest shopping spree, Icahn has spent $1 billion on Apple stock during the past weeks to raise his total holdings in the Cupertino, Calif., company to $3.6 billion since he began buying the shares five months ago when they were still trading below $450.Apple’s stock rose $4.67 to close at $556.18 on Thursday. Despite the recent gains, the shares remain about 20 per cent below their peak reached 16 months ago.Icahn, a longtime activist investor, has been lobbying Apple’s board to boost the stock by funneling more of the company’s $147 billion in cash toward share repurchases. Meeting Icahn’s demands would require Apple to spend more on its stock than it planned, something the board so far has been unwilling to do.The impasse has set the stage for a Feb. 28 showdown at Apple’s annual meeting, where shareholders will vote on a non-binding proposal recommending that the board follow Icahn’s advice. Apple is urging its shareholders to vote against the proposal, saying it is already reviewing ways to return more cash to shareholders.Icahn tried to sway Apple shareholders to his side Thursday with the release of an open letter that represented his most detailed explanation so far about why he believes the company is worth substantially more than its current market value of about $500 billion.Besides elaborating on the reasons why he believes it’s a “no-brainer” for Apple to buy more of its own stock, Icahn took the unusual step of pointing out new markets where he believes the company could easily make even more money than it already does with its line of iPhones, iPads, iPods and Mac computers.Icahn made it clear he wants to see an Apple television set, a device that has been a subject of company speculation for the past three years. Steve Jobs, Apple’s late CEO and co-founder, suggested Apple was working on a TV set in interviews with his biographer before he died in October 2011.In the letter, Icahn suggested that Apple should make a $1,600 television set with an “ultra” high-definition screen designed to show so-called “4K’ programming that will be coming from Internet video service Netflix Inc. and other sources later this year. Icahn thinks Apple could sell at least 25 million of the ultra-HD sets backed by its brand and software, generating about $40 billion in revenue.Icahn also touted the possibility of Apple making a smartwatch, an idea that company CEO Tim Cook has hinted at in public appearances. Icahn also thinks the company is ideally positioned to roll out a system for handling digital payments.The letter also jabbed at a sore point at Apple by referring to the perceived lack of innovation at the company since Jobs died. Icahn described recent upgrades to the iPhone and iPad as “evolutionary (not revolutionary).”Apple didn’t immediately respond to requests for comment.As has been the case through most of his public campaign, Icahn praised Cook in his letter for doing an “excellent job.”Icahn’s main beef has been with Apple’s board, which consists of Cook and seven other members. In an interview with the Fox Business network, Icahn said it’s “almost criminal” for the board to resist increasing the company’s stock buyback program and questioned the directors’ intelligence about financial matters.Icahn wants Apple to spend $50 billion buying back its stock by the end of its fiscal year ending in September. The company began the year with $37 billion left to invest in a $60 billion buyback program that doesn’t expire until September 2015. read more

Muslim father whose children were taken into care concocted complex conspiracy theory

first_imgThe parents, in particular the father, thought that there had been a ‘conspiracy’ and that the professionals had not acted appropriatelyMr Justice Baker A Muslim man whose children have been taken into care after a High Court judge decided that they had been abused has complained of social workers being prejudiced against him.Mr Justice Baker has concluded two boys had been been hit, punched and kicked by their father – and said beatings had been “plainly abusive”.He concluded that the couple had used “physical abuse” in a bid to discipline their large family and has ruled that all their children should live away from home.The man had spoken of “the racism in this country” – and he and his wife thought that there had been a “conspiracy” against them. Detail has emerged in the latest in a number of rulings on the case by Mr Justice Baker following private family court hearings in London.Local authority social services bosses had asked the judge to make decisions about where the youngsters’ best interests lay. No one involved was identified.The father had put forward a “complex conspiracy theory” to explain allegations made by his children, said the judge.He had also said at one stage “you have to understand the racism in this country” and had added “a white jury will always a convict a black man”.”They acknowledged that they had used physical chastisement, but not that there had been significant harm caused to any of the children as a result,” said Mr Justice Baker.”There was further evidence that the parents, in particular the father, thought that there had been a ‘conspiracy’ and that the professionals had not acted appropriately.”The parents reported physically chastising the children by ‘a tap on the bottom’, ‘a clip on the ear’ and ‘a tap on the hand’.”The judge said: “He acknowledged that he and his wife had practised physical chastisement in a minor way but not the kicking and punching described by the local authority which this court had found. He … asserted that the local authority is prejudiced against him.”However, Mr Justice Baker concluded the allegations had been proved and said: “The parents used physical abuse as a method of trying to maintain discipline over their large family which they struggled to control.”center_img Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

74 view wellbeing programmes as a key part of their employee value

first_imgAlmost three quarters (74%) of employer respondents believe their wellbeing programme is an important element of their employee value proposition, according to research by Xerox HR Services.Its Working well: a global survey of workforce wellbeing strategies report, which surveyed 428 organisations across 33 countries, also found that 52% of respondents feel that top-down leadership and strong support from leaders is critical to changing workplace culture.The research also found:92% of respondents believe local ambassadors play a key role in supporting a culture of wellbeing in their organisation.33% of respondents believe there is a strong culture of wellbeing in their organisation, and 83% of respondents aspire to have a strong culture of wellbeing in the future.92% of respondents offer retirement financial security and preparedness programmes, and 91% provide financial literacy and skills programmes.24% of respondents have implemented financial literacy and skills programmes in the past year, and 39% have had these programmes in place for the last two to five years.John Gentry (pictured), president at Xerox HR Services, said: “Healthy, productive employees are the lifeblood of [an organisation]. In the past, the thought that healthy workers meant productive workers was somewhat of a theory. Today with aggregate data and analytics, there is a much stronger case for return on investment.“Employers are championing a culture of wellbeing, but they also recognise that there are barriers to achieving it globally, such as differing cultures, laws and practices, and a current lack of global oversight for health or financial strategy.“That said, these issues appear to be less of a problem when it comes to global financial strategies, so employers are more likely to quickly get behind implementing global financial wellbeing programmes.”last_img read more

Broccoli City Festival Live Healthy DC

first_imgIn an attempt to influence younger people to live healthier, a D.C. festival fused Hip Hop culture with environmental sustainability, exercise, and healthy eating.Swae Lee, one of the brothers in rising rap star group Rae Sremmurd, during their show at the Broccoli City Festival on May 6. (Photo by Charise Wallace)The Broccoli City Festival, which ran in the District from April 29-May 6, included a 5k run in Anacostia on April 29, a conference on May 4 and 5, an arts and music popup show on May 5, and a concert on May 6. The conference was listed as sold out as of May 2, according to the Broccoli City Festival’s Facebook page.On May 6, despite the rain, thousands attended the festival’s final day, at St. Elizabeth’s East Gateway Pavilion in southeast D.C., basking in positive energy, healthy eating, and entertainment from Rae Sremmurd, Solange, AlunaGeorge, Lil Yachty, NAO, Rapsody, and Chaz French.Even though the performers and vendors were the highlight of the festival, Broccoli City’s primary initiative was to raise awareness about healthy food availability in southeast D.C. “As far as the people, I do see an awareness coming,” founder Brandon McEachern told the AFRO. “I care about the people who came, the ones who got that free broccoli taco at the Whole Foods’ tent. Those type of things keep me elated.”McEachern, 33, is from Greensboro, N.C., but also referenced the district as his second home since he traveled simultaneously throughout his childhood to visit family in the Northwest area of the city. “From Parasucos (a popular denim brand in the early 2000s) to go-go bands, I’ve been coming to D.C. every summer my whole entire life,” he said.McEachern noticed a correlation between D.C’s low-socioeconomic communities and Los Angeles’ Crenshaw area, because both lacked access to better quality food and it reflected on residents’ performance levels, as compared to areas like Santa Monica, where people were eating salads and living longer.“In Crenshaw, you see liquor stores, liquor stores, and McDonalds . . . similar to how it is out here,” he said. “But when you go to Santa Monica there’s salads, people are chipper, they riding bikes, their skin looks different. So, I had to figure out that there was a correlation within the food and how they were treating themselves.”With help from co-founder Marcus Allen and Darryl Perkins, director of community engagement, they began helping urban communities in southeast D.C. in 2013 to combat gentrification and food deserts.“I feel like we keep getting let down . . . instead of trying to do something like Broccoli City Festival by giving us an outlet to just have fun and not be angry,” Anthony Bob, 22, told the AFRO. He volunteered at the festival and lives in southeast D.C. “They don’t see what’s happening to people that’s from southeast. Broccoli city is one, but we still have Congress and others in office who have their own agenda.”The festival has created year-round programs such as Code Green, Urban Farming, and Power of One to discuss health consciousness, environmental sustainability, and economic growth.Code Green develops workshops to fight health risks among the youth and adults. Urban Farming aims to fight food deserts by practicing growing food. Power of One uses political campaign strategies for millennials to engage in volunteer activities, which is a prominent way to earn a free ticket to the festival.“Far too often communities of color, low-income families, and other marginalized groups do not have equal access to clean air, water, and land,” Rep. Donald McEachin (D-Va.) told the AFRO. “The United for Climate and Environmental Justice Task Force will collaboratively craft legislation to discuss environmental justice needs in communities of D.C. and across the country.”The festival partnered with several organizations, including TIDAL, Beats By Dre, Planned Parenthood, D.C. Kitchen, &Pizza, U.S. Department of Parks and Recreation, Toyota, American Heart Association, and others.The festival’s next venture will be the “Smile Project,” which will consist of a weekend filled with family-friendly festivities starting on June 1-4 for inner-city youth.last_img read more

Nintendo may end up owing royalties on every Wii sold

first_imgNintendo lost a lawsuit today that could see it forced to pay out many millions in royalties to Dutch electronics company Philips. The reason? A patent owned by Philips relating to motion control that Nintendo has infringed with its Wii games console.Philips hasn’t been publicly specific about what exactly the patent covers, but it relates to “motion, gesture and pointing control.” The company has been licensing this patent to both games consoles and set-top box manufacturers for years, but Nintendo refused to sign up for and pay the license when Philips pursued such a deal back in 2011. So Philips did the only thing it could: sue Nintendo.Philips won the court case in the UK, but it has three more ongoing including one in the US. Philips wants “fair compensation” for its patent, suggesting a small royalty fee on every Wii sold, and possibly every Wii U, too. If Philips wins the other cases, then Nintendo may end up paying out a royalty to cover all 101 million Wii consoles sold to date. That’s going to be a huge chunk of change even if the license is only a few cents per console.It seems highly likely Nintendo will appeal the decision and Philips will need to continue to fight and wait for the royalty payment. With potentially millions on the line and now a decision in its favor, I doubt we’ll see the Dutch company throw in the towel. You also have to assume a win in the UK will be quickly integrated into the other ongoing lawsuits as proof Nintendo is infringing.last_img read more

Kolkata girl dead in school washroom Primary autopsy confirms suicide

first_imgKolkata: Primary autopsy reports of Class X student, who was found dead inside her school washroom on Friday, confirmed suicide.Police said the primary report mentioned hypoxia or lack of oxygen supply to the brain and body as the cause of death of the student of GD Birla Centre for Education in south Kolkata. The cut mark on her wrist was a second injury, which according to doctors was “self-implicating”. Doctors suspected that the girl died because of the polythene packet that she had tied up with strings, used to bind practical notebooks, to cover her head. The autopsy was done at SSKM hospital on Saturday. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata Police also confirmed that the girl had suicidal tendency. Even earlier, she had attempted to take the extreme step at home. “So far, investigation reveals that it was a case of suicide. While examining her mother, we found out that she had made similar attempts at home earlier,” said an investigating official. Bright, meritorious and trained in self-defence, she was always among the top five rank holders. Police said she had attended five periods before her death and behaved normally. Before leaving her classroom, she had told her friends that she would go to the sick room. However, CCTV footage showed that she instead went to the washroom with a few things in her hand. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in state “She was missing for 40 minutes and was later found unconscious inside the washroom. Prima facie it appears to be a case of suicide, which very well-planned. She had spoken to her father before school and had asked him to get biryani from Hyderabad, when he returned from there,” said an investigating official. Her three-page suicide note had no overwriting and was flawless, said police. She also described how she was dying and that no one should be held responsible for her death. “She hasn’t held anyone responsible for her death in her suicide note. But her writing shows how upset she was and had a lot of hidden pain. She hasn’t addressed anyone in specific in her suicide note. She also thanked her parents for doing their best in her life. But has mentioned about some strange dark side of her life, which isn’t clear,” said police. Police suspected she might have consumed something before wrapping her head with a polythine, so that no one could hear her screams. However, that will be cleared in the detailed autopsy report. Police also suspected that she had learnt the procedure by watching web series or movies. “She was academically brilliant and would complete her syllabus much in advance. Her mother said she had wanted an admission in the Indian Statistical Institute in future and would often talk about it,” said police. Police are now examining her laptops and mobile phones. Chairperson of West Bengal Commission for Protection of Child Rights, Ananya Chakraborti, met the school authorities Saturday. “The school authorities are very shocked since they never found anything abnormal in her. But after the incident when they spoke to her mother, she apparently revealed that the girl had attempted suicide even before. Her parents didn’t inform the school authorities about it, otherwise they would have paid more attention and such an incident could have been averted,” Chakraborti said.Several guardians believed that lack of CCTV cameras inside washrooms make it easy for students to do anything secretly. An attendant outside the washroom could have avoided this incident in particular, they added. “This is an extremely unfortunate incident. It should be probed from all possible angle, be it any loophole on part of the school authorities, the education system or domestic environment,” said Suranjan Das, Vice Chancellor of Jadavpur University.

Trump officials refuse to meet regarding transgender rights

first_imgShare this:TwitterFacebookLike this:Like Loading… Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy III of Massachusetts [Wikipedia Commons] The Washington Blade reported officials from the civil rights offices with the Department of Justice and the Department of Homeland Security have turned down the request to confer on transgender matters.The request was sent via a letter dated 13 February from Massachusetts Rep. Joseph P. Kennedy III (grandson of the late Sen. Robert F. Kennedy), who serves as chair of the Congressional Transgender Equality Task Force.The letter was sent to a total of eight departments. The other six, which have yet to respond, are the Departments of State, Defense, Treasury, Education, Housing and Urban Development (HUD) and Health and Human Services (HSS). The letter requested a response by 23 February.‘During the first year of this administration, transgender Americans have endured a systematic attack on their dignity, rights and freedom,’ the letter says. eTN Chatroom for Readers (join us) The letter cites concerns about transgender rights including the withdrawal of guidance assuring transgender students access to school restrooms that match their gender identity, the elimination of Title VII employment discrimination protection and Trump’s proposed ban on transgender soldiers serving in the military.It also lists the creation of a Conscience & Religious Freedom Division within the Department of Health & Human Services as a major concern. That division is viewed by many as a tool for LGBTI discrimination.‘These new policies could result in health care providers refusing medically-necessary treatment to transgender patients and school boards creating hostile and unwelcoming environments for transgender teachers and students,’ the letter states.‘We believe the “government of the people, by the people, for the people” must apply to all Americans, not just the politically-favored,’ reads the letter.In addition to Kennedy, the letter was signed by Rep. Mike Quigley (Illinois), Rep. Donald McEachin (Virginia) and Rep. Raul Grijalva (Arizona). The letter was also signed by Rep.
