Oil tanker collides with cargo ship in Dover Strait off UK This Saturday, July 1, 2017 photo provided by RNLI shows damage on Seafrontier tanker after a collision in the Dover Strait between Britain and France. An oil tanker and a large cargo ship collided Saturday in the Dover Strait but no casualties or pollution from the accident have been reported so far, French authorities say. (Paul Cannon/RNLI via AP) PARIS – An oil tanker and a large cargo ship collided Saturday in the Dover Strait between Britain and France but the accident caused no casualties or pollution and both vessels were able to set off again, French authorities said.The local Maritime Prefecture said the collision between the two Honk Kong-flagged vessels took place overnight 20 miles (32 kilometres) off the northern French port of Dunkirk, in the British zone of the strait between the English Channel and the North Sea, one of the world’s busiest sea routes. It said none of the tanker’s 27 crew members or the 22 on the freighter was injured.The prefecture said the 183-meter (600-foot) Seafrontier tanker, which carries 38,000 tons of gasoline, was able to set off again to the Belgian port of Antwerp after being in a “watched drift” following the collision.The 224-meter (735-foot) Huayan Endeavour freighter suffered only minor damage in the accident and headed to Dunkirk.Three French experts were dropped onto the Seafrontier by helicopter a few hours after the collision and assessed that the hull had not suffered substantial damage.The prefecture said the situation was now under control and “doesn’t pose a risk of pollution or a danger to navigation” in the strait.The Strait of Dover, a narrow sea passage between southeast England and northern France, is less than 21 miles (34 kilometres) wide at its shortest distance. Up to 25 per cent of the world’s maritime traffic passes through the strait, which often has bad weather, cramped shipping lanes, strong currents, sandbanks and a wide range of tides. by Philippe Sotto, The Associated Press Posted Jul 1, 2017 8:24 am MDT Last Updated Jul 1, 2017 at 11:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email

Mens basketball Five potential Thad Matta replacementsMens basketball Five potential Thad Matta replacements
One of the most anticipated coaching announcements of the coming season came early Monday afternoon when Ohio State announced Thad Matta was out as men’s basketball head coach. As the curtain falls on the tenure of the most successful coach in program history, Athletics Director Gene Smith said a national search for a new coach will start immediately.Former OSU assistant and Dayton head coach Archie Miller accepted the heralded Indiana job in March, taking the speculated would-be replacement of Matta out of the picture. But there are plenty of high-profile coaches who could be contacted about the vacant position at a school considered to be a high-major program.Billy Donovan, Oklahoma City Thunder head coachOklahoma City Thunder head coach Billy Donovan shouts to his players during the second quarter on Saturday, Feb. 6, 2016, at Oracle Arena in Oakland, Calif. Credit: Courtesy of TNSAccomplishments: Donovan won back-to-back national championships at Florida in 2006 and 2007, the second of which was against Matta’s Buckeyes. Donovan coached 19 seasons at Florida from 1996-2015, then was hired by the Thunder as its head coach. He has a career record of 467-186 (.715) overall at Florida and 202-109 (.650) in the Southeastern Conference. He made four Final Four and seven Elite Eights in his time with the Gators.Why a good fit: OSU needs a change in the program to bring it back to the top of the conference. Donovan did it before, so why couldn’t he do it again? He is arguably one of the best coaches in basketball right now and has had tremendous success on the recruiting trail, grabbing nine McDonald’s All Americans from 2001-2015.Connections: Donovan and OSU football coach Urban Meyer coached at Florida simultaneously and reportedly have a strong relationship. If that has any impact on Smith and the job search, that’s remaining to be seen. Not to mention, OSU will have to take Donovan away from the NBA. However, Donovan’s Thunder aren’t likely to win a title in the near future despite having triple-double machine Russell Westbrook at point guard.Sean Miller, Arizona head coachArizona head coach Sean Miller issue orders to his team during second-half action against Wisconsin in the NCAA Tournament’s Elite 8 at Staples Center in Los Angeles on Saturday, March 28, 2015. Wisconsin advanced, 85-78. Credit: Courtesy of TNSAccomplishments: Once Matta left Xavier at the end of the 2003-04 season, Miller kept the program alive and made the tournament each year except 2004-05 when the Musketeers lost its three leading scorers from the previous year. Miller led Xavier to two straight Sweet Sixteens in 2008 and 2009 before he was hired as Arizona’s head coach. There, he has won two conference coach of the year awards, four regular-season conference championships and three conference tournament championships.Miller has never made it to a Final Four, but has made it to three Elite Eights and five Sweet Sixteens in seven NCAA Tournament appearances. He has also been most successful on the recruiting trail with five top-five and six top-10 classes since 2010. Miller has signed seven McDonald’s All-Americans since 2012.Why a good fit: Smith made it seem like the decision to fire Matta and not give him another season was because of recruiting. If that’s the case, why not get one of the best recruiters, by numbers, in college basketball? However, Arizona is a premier program and Miller is under contract through 2022.Connections: Miller was one of Matta’s assistant coaches at Xavier from 2002-04, then took over for Matta and coached the Musketeers from 2004-05 season through 2009. His brother, Archie, was an assistant with Matta at OSU. Chris Mack, Xavier head coachXavier head coach Chris Mack on the sidelines against North Carolina State during the first round of the NCAA Tournament at the University of Dayton Arena in Dayton, Ohio, on Tuesday, March 18, 2014. Credit: Courtesy of TNSAccomplishments: Where Miller picked up after Matta, Mack picked up after Miller. In his eight seasons as Xavier head coach, Mack has led the Musketeers to seven NCAA Tournaments, including four Sweet Sixteens and one Elite Eight. Under Mack, Xavier had its highest preseason Associated Press ranking (7) in school history at the start of the 2016-17 season.Why a good fit: He’s an Ohio guy who knows the area and is a growing recruiter in the Midwest. He has built up his career enough to make the jump to a major program like OSU. Mack has also been able to compete against high-major programs with primarily four- and three-star prospects that have developed into reliable college scorers. Connections: Mack is a Cleveland native, graduated from St. Xavier High School in Cincinnati and has coached Xavier for seven years as an assistant and eight years as the head coach. Xavier gave OSU its last coach and this would be a huge leap forward for Mack in his career. One aspect that could play a factor is that Mack is a Xavier alumnus.Mick Cronin, Cincinnati head coachCincinnati Bearcats head coach Mick Cronin shouts out a play against UConn on Sunday, March 5, 2017 at Gampel Pavilion in Storrs, Conn. Credit: Courtesy of TNSAccomplishments: Cronin was named the head coach of the Bearcats in 2006-07 and was just 11-19 in his first season, finishing last in the Big East. Four years later, the Bearcats won 26 games and a game in the NCAA Tournament for the first time in six seasons. Since then the Bearcats haven’t won less than 22 games in a season and have made seven NCAA Tournaments, winning one American Athletic Conference title in the process.Why a good fit: Cronin has deep ties in Ohio and, like Mack, has immediate credibility to in-state recruiting. He has also shown an ability to develop players over a few years in his program, which is something OSU desperately needs.Connections: Cronin lacks direct connections to OSU, other than landing his first collegiate coaching job under then-Cincinnati coach Bob Huggins, who was an assistant for two seasons with the Buckeyes in 1978-79 and 1979-80. Chris Holtmann, Butler head coachButler head coach Chris Holtmann directs his team during the first half against Virginia in the second round of the NCAA Tournament at PNC Arena in Raleigh, N.C., on Saturday, March 19, 2016. Virginia advanced, 77-69. Credit: Courtesy of TNSAccomplishments: He has only been a coach at Butler since the 2014-15 season, but is quietly becoming one of the best coaches in college basketball. This past season, Holtmann’s Butler Bulldogs beat the reigning national champion Villanova Wildcats twice during the regular season and finished second in the Big East. Holtmann was named 2017 Big East Coach of the Year award after finishing 25-9 and 12-6 in conference. Butler made it to the Sweet Sixteen in 2016-17 for the first time since 2011 under Boston Celtics coach, and former Thad Matta assistant, Brad Stevens.Why a good fit: Holtmann, although under contract through 2025, has returned Butler to the relative prominence that Brad Stevens had the program at during its two national championship runs in 2010 and 2011. It would make sense for OSU to hire a coach that has had commitments from players in Ohio (Massillon Jackson’s 2016 forward Kyle Young) and has shown he can put a program back on the map and compete for conference championships.Connections: Like the Xavier coaching tree to OSU, the Butler coaching tree has also been lucrative for the Buckeyes, considering Matta’s head coaching career began with the Bulldogs. Holtmann was an assistant under coach John Groce at Ohio in 2008-09 and 2009-10. Groce was one of Matta’s original assistants starting in 2004-05 until 2007-08.
Grenfell Tower tensions could boil over as thousands set to attend justiceGrenfell Tower tensions could boil over as thousands set to attend justice
Thousands of people are expected to attend a rally to demand “justice” for those caught up in the Grenfell Tower fire.After politicians including London mayor Sadiq Khan and Andrea Leadsom, the leader of the House of Commons, were heckled by angry locals demanding answers, there are fears that tensions could boil over at the event.A Facebook event, Justice for Grenfell!, has been listed as taking place at 6pm outside the Department for Communities and Local Government, with more than 2,700 people said to be planning to attend. Thirty people are confirmed to have died as flames tore through the 24-storey building in west London in the early hours of Wednesday, while dozens are thought to be missing. It is feared the death toll could soar to over 100.There were angry scenes in north Kensington on Thursday as London mayor Sadiq Khan was heckled by crowds and Prime Minister Theresa May was criticised for visiting the site without meeting members of the community. Downing Street aides said that the purpose of Mrs May’s visit was to get a briefing from emergency services and ensure that they had the resources they needed. Theresa May speaking to fire crews at Grenfell Tower. She has been criticised for not meeting residentsCredit:Dan Kitwood/Getty Mrs May met police and firefighters dealing with the aftermath of the disaster during a private visit to the west London site, but unlike Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn and London Mayor Sadiq Khan, she was not seen to speak to families and residents. The posting said: “At least 150 people have died in the fire at Grenfell Tower. They deserve justice. We demand answers. “Solidarity with the residents of Grenfell Tower. Supported by Grenfell action group, Defend Council Housing, Kensington and Chelsea Momentum, Westway23 and NW London Stand Up to Racism.” He told BBC’s This Week: “She met in private with the emergency services, a good thing to do no doubt, but she should have been there with the residents, which is what Jeremy Corbyn was.”She wanted an entirely controlled situation in which she didn’t use her humanity.”The Prime Minister would have been shouted at by the residents, but she should have been willing to take that.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

Greek opposition leader leader Alexis Tsipras attempted on Thursday to kill off any new speculation about whether his party is committed to keeping Greece in the single currency by saying that its aim is to “save the country in the euro.”Tsipras was forced to clarify the party’s position after comments made by veteran candidate for the European Parliament Manolis Glezos, who indicated that SYRIZA might consider a return to the drachma. In an interview with Alpha TV, Tsipras ruled this out as an option. “There is no issue with the euro,” he said.With his party enjoying only marginal leads in most opinion polls ahead of European Parliament elections on May 25, the leader of the opposition in Greece is alert to the fact that any confusion about where his party stands on vital issues could prove highly damaging. Tsipras also tried to clear up comments by SYRIZA’s economic spokesman, Yiannis Dragasakis, regarding referenda. He insisted that if they come to power they would not hold a vote on euro membership but would opt for plebiscites on key issues.“Referendums are part of our strategy,” said Tsipras. “This is because we will have nothing else to lean on but the constant renewal of support from voters.”The opposition leader’s comments come as New Democracy and SYRIZA prepare to get their campaigns, including for the May 18 local elections, in full gear. SYRIZA wants the European Parliament vote to act as a referendum on whether the coalition government should remain in power, by attempting to provide an alternative to the coalition’s austerity program. On the other hand, New Democracy and Prime Minister Antonis Samaras are emphasising in their campaign the government’s achievements so far.Source: ekathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram
A retired Melbourne schoolteacher who unearthed a mass grave of Australian soldiers in 2008 believes he has found another burial site on the Gallipoli peninsula. Lambis Englezos has spent the past four years investigating what he claims is a mass grave holding 143 Australian soldiers. In 2008, Mr Englezos discovered the ‘lost diggers of Fromelles’, uncovering more than 200 soldiers who had been hastily buried during the First World War. The remains were subsequently exhumed and buried properly, despite government resistance. The Fromelles battle in July 1916 is believed to be among the “worst 24 hours” in Australian history, with the official Australian War Memorial listing the fatality number at 5,533. Now, Mr Englezos has revealed to 60 Minutes how he is encountering the same bureaucratic hurdles as the news of the latest discovery unfolds.Mr Englezos received the Order of Australia (AO) for his Fromelles work.

A deal to buy the Anchorage Legislative Information Office building for $28 million is officially off the table.Rep. Mike Hawker, an Anchorage Republican, made the announcement early Thursday morning, at a six-minute meeting of the Legislative Council.“While I believe that the Anchorage LIO proposal speaks for itself on its own merits, I do recognize that the events of the past two weeks have proven that some legislators do not have time to become sufficiently comfortable with the proposal,” Hawker said.Hawker’s plan would have only purchased the building – not the land beneath it, or the parking facility. The state would have still been on the hook to rent those facilities from the developer at a cost of $1.4 million.With the purchase option now dead, the Legislature will instead lease the building for $4 million annually, as part of a 10-year agreement.That agreement has come under public criticism because it more than quadruples the rate the Legislature is currently paying for the building, as a result of renovations that are now underway.Sen. Peter Micciche, a Soldotna Republican who also has a leadership role on the Council, characterized the LIO situation as an “inherited problem” that has left the Legislature with few good alternatives.“I think it’s clear that none of us are comfortable with where we are. None of us are comfortable with this deal. It’s expensive,” Micciche said. “But here are the facts: That LIO houses half the Legislature for three quarter of the year – nine months of the years – in the area with the most expensive real estate in the state.”Earlier this week, the Senate President Charlie Huggins told reporters he would like to pursue the possibility of a one-year lease and reconsider the purchase of the building during the next legislative session.

Past Storms Made Houstons Medical Infrastructure Prepared For HarveyPast Storms Made Houstons Medical Infrastructure Prepared For Harvey
Share The Texas Tribune hosted a discussion on the healthcare landscape in Houston following Hurricane Harvey.State Rep. Sarah Davis (R-West University Place), Elena Marks, president and CEO of the Episcopal Health Foundation, and Harris County Public Health executive director Doctor Umair Shah [Shaw] served as panelist for the discussion hosted by the Tribune’s Brandon Formby.In discussing the impact Harvey had on healthcare in Houston, Dr. Shah was quick to point out that past investments made because of previous storms, like Allison, Rita, and Ike, made the medical infrastructure much more prepared than other industries.“When we go back to tropical storm Allison when I was an emergency department physician at the VA hospital, there was an incredible amount of discussion at that time of how we improve our healthcare system,” Dr. Shah says. “And what we have now is a system that really did invest that healthcare equation and that means we did things like not putting the generators in the basements. That we had pumps and drainage systems that allowed for healthcare institutions to be able to perform well.”During the hurricane there were over 120 healthcare institutions in the area, less than ten percent lost power or required evacuation during the storm.Public Health in Greater Houston also reacted well in preventing future health concerns immediately following Harvey. For example, aerial spraying for mosquitos in the days following the storm should help Houston avoid cases of West Nile virus that were so prevalent in Louisiana following Hurricane Katrina.With over a million acres in Harris County, a coverage area larger than the state of Rhode Island according to Dr. Shah, ground trucks can spray about 15,000 to 20,000 acres a day. With the assistance of the state and the federal government to use aerial spraying to cover 200,000 acres a night. As a result, the county was covered in a matter of days.While certainly the panel was able to highlight areas in which Public Health shined following Hurricane Harvey, there was also time to be critical of healthcare not only following the storm, but overall in Texas.Ms. Marks thinks Harvey highlighted the lack of investment in mental health and helping people deal with the aftereffects of the hurricane.”We get a really poor grade in this community on building the kinds of human capital infrastructure that help people before, during and after, in building resilient communities,” says Marks.She thinks the city is also lacking social investment.“If you look at what builds a healthy community. What makes an individual a family a neighborhood, a city, a county healthy, the investments you make in healthcare actually have a much smaller impact on overall health outcomes than the investments you make in social and community infrastructure,” Marks says.Marks believes the focus and attention to certain, perhaps more profitable, areas of healthcare are to blame.“The lack of mental health infrastructure I would say, is a symptom of lack of attention to anything that isn’t part of high tech, hospital oriented care. That we have focused all of our health brain around that. And we have neglected the kinds of things that make human beings resilient,” she says.Representative Davis says the state is making a commitment to children affected by Harvey. By starting a program where kids suffering could be identified in the schools, Davis thinks the financial investment is there.“I was very pleased with Commissioner [Mike] Morath, creating the task force. They’re working in connection with the Texas higher education coordinating board, as well as with Health and Human Services Commission and with the Meadows Foundation. And so, I believe that on a state level from the House side, that mental health has been a priority for a long time,” says Davis.

Punishing forehands, 130-mph serves, an occasional on court temper tantrum – these are things you can expect to see at the U.S. Open.A drone crash, however? While not an expected fixture at the tennis tournament, spectators at the second-round women’s match between Monica Niculescu of Romania and Flavia Pennetta of Italy on Thursday night bore witness to one, the New York Daily News reports.The drone crashed in an empty seating area at the back of the stadium. Luckily, no one was injured.The unmanned aircraft’s alleged pilot Daniel Verley, 26, was arrested early Friday morning. Verley wasn’t even in the stadium – instead, he was piloting the device from “a marina on the opposite side of Citi Field,” a source told the outlet.Pennetta – who won the match 6-1, 6-4 – was understandably unsettled by the crash. It was “a little bit scary, I have to say,” she told the Associated Press. “With everything going on in the world…I thought, ‘OK, it’s over.’ That’s how things happen.”This isn’t the first drone-based drama, nor will it be the last.

Egerton Primary held their annual Polar Bear Swim today (Thursday) at the school swimming pool.This event sees ‘daring’ children swimming a length of the icy-cold pool in the middle of winter.Some of the teachers were even brave enough to swim, along with the pupils.There was lots of nervous laughter and trepidation before they finally took the plunge and dived into the freezing water. As a reward for their efforts and bravery, all the swimmers were given a cup of lovely hot chocolate with marshmallows to warm them up again as they stood shivering in their towels.

The findings highlight the limitations of recall rates as a quality measure for breast cancer screening, the researchers said.Recall rates for mammography refer to the percentage of women who undergo screening and are called back for additional testing. Since recalls involve anxiety for patients and additional costs, there have been efforts to keep these rates as low as possible. “Recall rate by itself is used as a quality indicator by the federal government,” said Ana Lourenco, M.D., radiologist at the Rhode Island Hospital and the Alpert School of Medicine at Brown University in Providence, R.I. “Therefore, it remains important to understand the factors that influence recall rate for individuals and practices.”To better understand these factors, Lourenco and colleagues reviewed data between May 2008 and September 2011 for five radiologists with expertise in breast imaging who interpreted mammograms at a community office practice and an academic referral hospital. Both sites utilized full-field digital mammography and batch screening interpretation.The radiologists interpreted a total of 74,297 screening mammograms between both sites during the study. The total number of patients recalled was 5,799, for an overall recall rate of 7.8 percent. At 6.9 percent, the recall rate at the community site was significantly lower than the hospital rate of 8.6 percent. “For every radiologist, the recall rate was significantly lower in community practice than in the hospital setting,” noted Lourenco.When the researchers compared the two groups of patients, they found some important differences that could have influenced recall rates. Significantly more of the hospital patients had undergone previous surgeries and biopsies. Slightly more than 13 percent of the patients at the hospital site had a history of surgery, compared with 5.6 percent at the community site, and 7 percent of patients at the hospital had undergone a biopsy, compared with 1.4 percent at the community site. “These patients may have more complicated mammograms to interpret or may be at higher risk for cancer than patients at the community site,” Lourenco said. “Higher risk patients would be expected to increase the recall rate of the population.”Another key factor was the age of the patients. The mean age of the patients at the hospital site was 56 years, compared with a mean age of 63 years at the private practice. “Younger age has been associated with higher recall rates,” Lourenco said.While Lourenco commended efforts to develop quality metrics for breast cancer screening, she cautioned that recall rates are affected by factors out of the radiologist’s control and, therefore, cannot alone determine the quality of a radiologist or an institution.For more information: RadiologyInfo.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | September 05, 2013 Hospital Mammography Recall Rates Higher Image courtesy of Imago Systems Technology | Mammography Reporting Software | July 25, 2019 Hologic Partners With MagView to Develop Unifi EQUIP Solution Hologic announced a partnership with mammography information solutions provider MagView to develop Unifi EQUIP, an… read more Feature | Artificial Intelligence | July 19, 2019 | Michal Chorev AI Models Predict Breast Cancer With Radiologist-level Accuracy Breast cancer is the global leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women, and the most commonly diagnosed cancer… read more read more News | Mammography Reporting Software | July 26, 2019 Ikonopedia Releases Automated Combined Reporting Package at AHRA Ikonopedia showcased its recently released Automated Combined Reporting package and its entire suite of structured… read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more Technology | Breast Biopsy Systems | July 24, 2019 Fujifilm Releases Tomosynthesis Biopsy Option for Aspire Cristalle Mammography System Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A.
