Women’s soccer is having something of a moment across the globe.In Europe, awareness of the women’s game is at an all-time high as fledgling leagues begin to establish themselves in areas of the world that are already passionate about the sport.In March, 60,739 fans watched a league match between Atletico Madrid and Barcelona. A week later, 39,027 showed up for a Juventus league game against Fiorentina. Earlier this month 43,264 watched Manchester City defeat West Ham in the Women’s FA Cup final.

Meanwhile, the National Women’s Soccer League continues to establish a foothold in the United States as it reaches its seventh season and looks to expand in 2020.This all leads up to the Women’s World Cup in France, which is set to kick off next week. France, one of the favorites to lift the World Cup and home to the world’s best club team in Lyon, appears to be another country ready to be overtaken by a wave of interest in the women’s game.“The viewers, the knowledge about French soccer, especially the women is incredibly different now,” said USWNT midfielder Lindsey Horan, who played at Paris Saint-Germain between 2012 and 2016.“The fact that it’s getting more and more popular is Europe is amazing, especially because it’s such a soccer culture in Europe.”That culture has been dominated by men’s soccer for decades though and as U.S. forward Alex Morgan found during her time at Lyon in 2017, it isn’t going to simply change overnight.”Playing there two years ago you saw that it was growing but there was still sort of that untapped potential as well, and I think that things were being held back a little bit culturally,” Morgan said.“I think that this tournament can change a lot of people’s minds.”There will undoubtedly be new fans drawn to the women’s game by the World Cup, and increasing cultural openness to women’s sports has brought us to what seems like a tipping point for women’s soccer worldwide. But there is only one thing that will ensure the sport continues to grow after a jubilant team lifts the World Cup trophy on July 7 in Lyon. Money.The World Cup has the power to create a flood of interest in the sport, but history has shown that kind of surge can’t be sustained on buzz alone.In 1999 the Women’s World Cup came to the United States and generated massive crowds and money, as the U.S. team became a nationwide phenomenon en route to winning the title.In the wake of that tournament, the Women’s United Soccer Association was formed the next year. Initially propped up by millions of dollars in investment, the WUSA went belly-up just three years later as investors grew skittish at the prospect of sinking more money into the league.At the same time Major League Soccer, the men’s league formed in 1996, lost massive amounts of money and would have gone out of business in the early 2000s were in not for a huge injection of capital by a few owners. Today, MLS is thriving and looking to expand beyond 30 teams in the near future.Quite simply, the women’s game needs more investors like those involved in MLS, and fewer like those involved with the WUSA. “You’re getting these incredible moments but the thing that’s going to sustain that is big investment,” U.S. forward Megan Rapinoe said.“I think it’s investment, big-time investment, not just from a financial perspective but from an intellectual perspective as well.“You have to build a solid business and oftentimes women’s sports has just bootstrapped so hardcore and the budgets are so tight that you can’t expect to have a business and increase your budget like a half a percent every year. That’s just not going to work.”Rapinoe spotlighted two teams, one at home and one abroad, who can be examples for other owners to follow.“I think that teams like the Utah Royals, teams like Lyon really put an investment in it and then the product on the field can grow with the product off the field.”Outside of those two teams, in the French top flight, the NWSL, and other leagues in countries where there will be a flood of interest after the World Cup, a rising tide will lift all boats.“In France having a competitive league will help,” Morgan said. “I think for now there are only two or three teams that can really compete at the top. Obviously Lyon is just incredibly dominant and just the best club team in the world, so it’s kind of getting the rest of those teams up to speed.“For all of us it’s just continuing to create a stable and growing league in our own countries. In the U.S. we’re seeing that as well. We want to make sure that it continues to grow at a pace that’s not too accelerated but is not stagnant.”The World Cup is going to be a huge event all over the world and will – once again – spark questions about whether the women’s game has truly arrived.To get a real answer to that question, one only needs to follow the money.“It’s exciting to have these huge crowds and the game growing as much as possible but I think the next step needs to be taken, otherwise you’re just going to get these exciting moments that don’t have any way to really be fully realized or sustained,” Rapinoe said.“I’m hopeful for the next part of it.”
MONTREAL – The Quebec national assembly passed a religious neutrality bill Wednesday that will oblige citizens to uncover their faces while giving and receiving state services. Some quotes on the law:“The principle to which I think a vast majority of Canadians by the way, not only Quebecers, would agree upon is that public services should be given and received with an open face. I speak to you, you speak to me. I see your face. You see mine. As simple as that.” — Quebec Premier Philippe Couillard.— — —“We respect people’s right to express their religious beliefs and we disagree with the law Quebec has brought in and we will never introduce such a law in Ontario.” — Ontario Attorney General Yasir Naqvi.— — —“This is imposing on women a certain way of dressing or not dressing and I find that is against their rights.” Liberal MP Alexandra Mendes, who is from Quebec.— — —“Listen, as an elected official from Quebec, as a Quebec woman and also as a feminist, I will never tell another woman how to dress.” — Revenue Minister Diane Lebouthillier.— — —“Personally, I am against Bill 62 for different reasons. I think it goes way too far. I think it is legitimate to ask people to identify themselves when it comes to security issues but in the other cases there are rights and freedoms and it’s our job to protect those.” — Conservative MP Alain Rayes.— — —“I think fundamentally, we can’t have the state tell people what to wear, what not to wear. And that, particularly when it’s applied in the way that will disproportionately impact some people.” — NDP Leader Jagmeet Singh.— — —“The niqab, nurka has no place — not even on the bus. It is not a religious sign. It’s a political symbol of the enslavement and de-empowerment of women that is supported by the most repressive regimes on the planet.” — Andre Lamoureux, political scientist and spokesman for a Quebec movement for secularism.— — —“We are disappointed by the passing of Quebec’s so-called religious neutrality bill. While the Sikh faith forbids the practice of veiling, we believe Muslim women have a right to wear the niqab.” — World Sikh Organization of Canada President Mukhbir Singh.— — —“Individuals should be free to wear what they want and our government is committed to ensuring that we uphold the Charter of Rights and Freedoms. But we recognize a conversation took place in the national assembly in Quebec and they passed laws and that is their perogative to do so.” — Federal Justice Minister Jody Wilson-Raybould.
The plant suffered major damage from the earthquake and tsunami that struck the country on 11 March and has been spewing radioactive contamination into the environment ever since.Denis Flory, IAEA Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Nuclear Safety and Security, told a news conference in Vienna that the re-evaluation of the rating on the International Nuclear and Radiological Event Scale (INES) resulted from an estimate of the total amount of radioactivity released to the environment from the nuclear plant.The new provisional rating considers the accidents that occurred at Units 1, 2 and 3 of the plant as a single event on INES. Previously, separate INES Level 5 ratings had been applied for Units 1, 2 and 3. The provisional INES Level 3 rating assigned for Unit 4 still applies.“NISA [The Japan Nuclear and Industrial Safety Agency] estimates that the release of radioactive material to the atmosphere is approximately 10 per cent of the Chernobyl accident, which is the only other accident to have an INES rating of 7,” he stated. At the same time, he pointed out that “the Fukushima accident and Chernobyl are very different. Chernobyl happened at a reactor at power. It was a huge explosion… then you had a huge graphite fire for a number of days. Also [Chernobyl had] the power to move all this radioactivity in the high atmosphere and then spread it all around the Earth.”The INES scale, developed jointly in 1990 by the IAEA and the nuclear energy agency of the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), is a way to communicate the significance of nuclear and radiological events to the public. Mr. Flory explained that the “below scale” is for events which have no safety significance, while those meeting the criteria for the first three levels are rated as “incidents” and the last four levels as “accidents.”The highest, Level 7, is used to describe an event comprised of “a major release of radioactive material with widespread health and environmental effects requiring implementation of planned and extended countermeasures.” He said that, overall, the situation at the plant remains “very serious,” but there are early signs of recovery in some functions such as electrical power and instrumentation.Meanwhile, NISA has confirmed that no changes were observed on the readings at the on-site radiation monitoring posts following the 6.6 magnitude quake that struck Fukushima prefecture yesterday. 12 April 2011The United Nations atomic agency today confirmed that Japanese authorities had provisionally raised the severity level for the accident at the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear power plant that was damaged in last month’s earthquake to 7, the same level given to the 1986 Chernobyl accident.

The gain suggests higher taxes have yet to slow consumer spending on services.The Institute for Supply Management said Tuesday that its index of non-manufacturing activity rose to 56 in February from 55.2 in January. Any reading above 50 indicates expansion.The report measures growth in industries that cover 90 per cent of the work force, including retail, construction, health care and financial services.Service firms also kept adding jobs last month, although at a slightly slower pace than the previous month. A gauge of hiring dipped slightly after hitting a nearly seven-year high in January.Labour Department figures show solid hiring at service firms and construction companies, which the ISM includes in its measure of hiring. Those firms have added an average of 195,000 jobs from November through January.The government will release the February employment report on Friday.The increase in the service index also suggests consumers haven’t pared spending after Social Security taxes rose two percentage points Jan. 1. The companies surveyed by the ISM cover many industries that are closely tied to consumer spending, such as retail, hotels and restaurants and arts and entertainment. The higher payroll taxes cost a household earning $50,000 about $1,000 a year; a household with two high-paid workers will have up to $4,500 less.In January, consumers spent slightly more compared with the previous month, the government said last week. Most of the increase was in services, like utilities. They spent less on major purchases such as cars and appliances that signal confidence in the economy.There have been signs that Americans are willing to keep opening their wallets, despite higher taxes. Auto sales rose slightly in February after jumping the previous month. And measures of consumer confidence rebounded after plunging at the end of last year.The ISM reported last week that its separate index for manufacturing rose to its highest level since June 2011, driven higher by increases in new orders and production. That suggests manufacturing could boost growth this year after slumping in 2012. by Christopher S. Rugaber, The Associated Press Posted Mar 5, 2013 11:03 am MDT
THE ROAD SAFETY Authority (RSA) has confirmed tonight that a data breach on the new driver licence website affected over 700 people.The authority said in a statement that there has been a problem with the ‘Contact Us’ form on the National Driving Licence Service (NDLS) website which is used to submit general queries.“It appears that the facility may not have ‘refreshed’ itself and deleted the previous queries as quickly as it should have, in all cases, to enable the next user to submit their query via the electronic ‘Contact Us’ form,” the RSA said.A total of 721 people have used this service to submit queries since the site launched on 29 October. the RSA said the details submitted in each form “will vary depending on what the applicant input onto the ‘Contact Us’ form”.However an initial review of the communications indicates that the majority are of a “general nature” and the RSA stressed that the service is not used for payments or applications.The RSA is taking steps to contact all 721 users affected and complete a review of their emails and follow up with each person affected.The ‘Contact Us’ form has been removed from the website and replaced with an email address for people to send queries to.“The RSA sincerely apologises to its customers for the inconvenience this may has have caused,” it said.The Office of the Data Protection Commissioner has also been notified of the breach.Read: Over 500,000 potentially affected by loyalty scheme breach>Read: Applying for a driving licence?

A BULGARIAN MAN went on trial today accused of decapitating a British grandmother in a store on the Spanish holiday island of Tenerife and then running out with her severed head.Deyan Valentinov Deyanov pleaded not guilty to repeatedly stabbing and then beheading Jennifer Mills-Westley, 60, with a knife at a Chinese general goods store in May 2011.Witnesses said they saw Deyanov leave the store with the woman’s bloodied head in his hand, which he then threw on the pavement, reportedly shouting “God is on Earth”.Police arrested him as he was struggling with a security guard and trying to escape.Prosecutors are seeking a sentence of 20 years in a mental asylum for the 29-year-old, who has chronic paranoid schizophrenia, as well as a payment of €200,000 to the victim’s family.The nine-member jury was shown around 15 minutes of security camera footage of the attack but Deyanov said he did not recognise himself in the images, which he said were “a montage, a film”.The court also heard testimony from a young man who helped detain Deyanov and an ambulance driver who rushed to the scene and saw the Bulgarian man carrying the victim’s head.Mills-Westley had no relation to Deyanov.The defendant was released from a Tenerife hospital where he underwent psychiatric treatment just three months before Mills-Westley was killed, according to Spanish media reports.In January 2011, he reportedly struck a security guard in the head with a rock, breaking several of his teeth.The victim’s daughters, Sarah Mears, 43, and Sam Gomes, 38, attended the hearing.“On Friday 13th May 2011 our lives changed irrevocably when we heard the shocking news that our much loved mother had been brutally murdered in Tenerife,” they said in a joint statement.“Now, nearly two years later we will come face to face with the man who took her life that day and relive the heart breaking details of the events leading up to her untimely death.“Going back to Tenerife not only is a daunting prospect but it will reopen our wounds,” the statement added.We have to hope that justice will prevail so we can lay our mother to rest, and remember her in happier times rather than the memories we currently have – memories which are shrouded by the brutality of her death.Mills-Westley, originally from Norwich in eastern England, had been living in Tenerife after retiring from her job as a road safety officer.Deyanov reportedly had a history of mental illness which had seen him sectioned in Britain, where he had lived, and in the Canary Islands.The largest of the Canary Islands, which are located just off the northwest coast of Africa, Tenerife is home to around one million residents and is one of Spain’s most popular tourist destinations.The trial resumes on Wednesday and is expected to last one week.- © AFP, 2013Previously: British woman who was stabbed and beheaded in Tenerife is named >
Motorola : un prototype du Droid Shadow égaré Washington, États-Unis – Après l’affaire de l’iPhone 4G retrouvé dans un bar de San José, c’est au tour de Motorola d’égarer l’un des prototypes de son futur smartphone, le Droid Shadow.C’est cette fois dans une salle de sport de Washington fréquentée par les employés de l’opérateur mobile américain Verizon qu’un exemplaire du smartphone a été retrouvé.Si quelques photos du mobile ont été prises par un employé de la salle de sport, et immédiatement publiées par le site Gizmodo, l’opérateur a très rapidement verrouillé à distance l’accès au Motorola Droid Shadow. Verizon n’a également pas tardé à récupérer le smartphone.Cette trouvaille aura malgré tout permis de découvrir certains détails du téléphone. Le Droid Shadow serait, d’après l’employé du gymnase, doté d’un écran 4,3 pouces, d’un appareil photo numérique de 8 millions de pixels, de 16 Go de stockage, d’un port HDMI, et fonctionnerait avec un processeur Snapdragon.Il faudra attendre la sortie de l’appareil aux États-Unis, prévue en juin ou juillet, pour en savoir plus. Le Droid Shadow devrait être dans un premier temps vendu en exclusivité chez Verizon.Le 27 mai 2010 à 14:52 • Emmanuel Perrin

News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more March 30, 2010 – Among a group of patients who should received radiation therapy according to medical guidelines, 95 percent of patients who had lumpectomy went on to receive radiation, while only 78 percent of those who had mastectomy received radiation. According to a new study from researchers at the University of Michigan Comprehensive Cancer Center, while radiation therapy is common after breast conserving surgery, it is much less frequent after mastectomy, even among women for whom it would have clear life-saving benefit. The study included 2,260 women treated for breast cancer. Researchers assessed whether these women had lumpectomy or mastectomy, and whether they would be strong candidates for radiation therapy. Women who have particularly large tumors or cancer in four or more of their nearby lymph nodes are recommended to have radiation after mastectomy.The study found that among the women who had a lumpectomy and should have received radiation therapy, 95 percent of patients did receive radiation. However, for those who had a mastectomy, only 78 percent who should have received radiation, according to the guidelines, did n fact receive radiation. Among the women in the study for whom radiation was less clearly beneficial, 80 percent of the lumpectomy patients had radiation while only 46 percent of the mastectomy patients did.Results of the study, which appear online March 29 in the Journal of Clinical Oncology, found One in five women with strong indications for radiation after mastectomy failed to receive it.Author Reshma Jagsi, M.D., D.Phil, assistant professor of radiation oncology at the University of Michigan Medical School, observed “a substantial number of breast cancer patients are being undertreated.” The study also found doctor participation strongly influenced radiation receipt. Patients who reported their surgeon was involved in the decision to receive radiation were more likely to receive radiation than patients whose doctor was less involved.Researchers concluded that patients with strong indications for radiation after mastectomy, their risk of the cancer coming back in the chest wall or surrounding areas can exceed 30 percent. This is reduced by two-thirds if the patient undergoes radiation treatments, and overall survival is improved.Reference: Journal of Clinical Oncology, DOI: 10.1200/JCO.2009.26.8433, published online March 29, 2010For more information: jco.ascopubs.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Image courtesy of Imago Systems 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 News | Radiation Therapy | August 16, 2019 Drug Accelerates Blood System’s Recovery After Radiation, Chemotherapy A drug developed by UCLA physician-scientists and chemists speeds up the regeneration of mouse and human blood stem… 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 | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 07, 2019 Qfix kVue One Proton Couch Top Validated by Mevion Medical Systems Qfix and Mevion Medical Systems announced that a special version of the kVue One Proton couch top is now both validated… read more Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left).

Last week more than 110 world-class athletes gathered in the National Stadium in La Sabana for a track and field competition. It was not a particularly unusual occurrence, save for the chants coming from the crowd.“Vamos Abuelo!” said a child near the front row. “Vamos!” (Let’s go grandpa.)The Costa Rican Master’s Track and Field Championships held last weekend actually saw a number of grandparents compete, and none of the competitors were under 30. Costa Rica’s Asociación Deportiva Master De Atletismo (ADEMA) is part of an international movement to get society’s oldest members out of their homes and back onto the track. While many of the competitors were still relatively young, the championship also headlined racers well into their 60s and 70s, with the oldest runner pushing 80. “Everyone knows that it is important to maintain themselves in physically good condition,” said ADEMA President Marcos Fournier. “The problem is few people are able to do that. Most people need something else to get them to stay active. ADEMA Costa Rica was founded in 1997 and members have the opportunity to participate in races in Costa Rica as well as other Central and South American countries. Many of the competitors have been involved with the organization since its inception and hold records across the region. But for most of ADEMA’S members, the records and medals are just icing on the cake for a much bigger goal. “The reward is that I’m 72, and I’m still feeling really good,” said Jim Procter, an ADEMA sprinter. “For me, that’s a pretty good reward.”While providing competition and keeping people active is an obvious goal of ADEMA and Master’s Track internationally, the organization also creates a community for a demographic vulnerable to loneliness.“It gives them the opportunity to find people with the same level of excitement and activity level,” said Fournier. “For many of these people ADEMA has become a kind of family.” Facebook Comments No related posts.
