Saudi prosecutor demands death penalty for five suspects in Khashoggi case, reports state news agency

first_img Alex Daniel Share Saudi prosecutor demands death penalty for five suspects in Khashoggi case, reports state news agency In November, the US Senate passed a resolution stating it “believes Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman is responsible for the murder of Jamal Khashoggi”.It called upon the government of Saudi Arabia to “ensure appropriate accountability for all those responsible for Jamal Khashoggi’s murder”. whatsapp The agency gave few details about the case except that the 11 suspects, none of whom were named, gathered at the first day of the hearing with their lawyers.Prosecutors sent a request to Turkey for evidence collected in Istanbul, which Ankara has so far not responded to, SPA reported.But Turkish authorities have previously said they have shared evidence with Saudi Arabia and other countries on the matter.Khashoggi was a vocal critic of the Saudi regime, spearheaded by its powerful Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, and the murder came as a hammer blow to Salman’s reputation on the world stage.The kingdom first denied Khashoggi had been killed, but weeks after went back on the claim, acknowledging his death. whatsapp A prosecutor in Saudi Arabia has called for the death penalty for five of the 11 suspects held in connection with the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in October.The demand came during the first court hearing over the Washington Post journalist’s murder at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul last year, according to state-run Saudi Press Agency (SPA).

After months of speculation, Forest Service recommends lifting Roadless Rule for the Tongass

first_imgAlaska’s Energy Desk | Environment | Federal Government | Southeast | TimberAfter months of speculation, Forest Service recommends lifting Roadless Rule for the TongassOctober 15, 2019 by Elizabeth Jenkins, Alaska’s Energy Desk – Juneau Share:The Tongass National Forest near Wrangell, Alaska, 2016. (Creative Commons photo by Rob Bertholf)The U.S. Forest Service announced Tuesday that it’s seeking a full exemption from the Roadless Rule of the Tongass National Forest.Audio Playerhttps://media.ktoo.org/2019/10/15ROADLESSMP3.mp300:0000:0000:00Use Up/Down Arrow keys to increase or decrease volume.The rule, which has applied to Alaska for more than a decade, makes it difficult to build new roads through national lands. But the U.S. Forest Service is proposing changes that could make Alaska the only state that doesn’t have to follow it.Of six alternatives listed in the plan, a full exemption is the Forest Service’s recommended choice. Alaska’s congressional delegation has long pushed for the full exemption in the state, saying there needs to be more access to timber and energy opportunities in the region.Owen Graham, President of Alaska Forest Association, agrees. He calls Tuesday’s announcement a “great thing.”“What we want is year-round manufacturing jobs and a lot more stability,” said Graham.But, he says, this is just one step in the right direction. Retaliation tariffs placed on logs shipped to China have been hitting some sectors of the small industry hard.Graham is uncertain how long it will take to see big systemic changes in how the Tongass National Forest is managed.“Right now the industry’s just crumbling apart. There’s hardly anybody left,” he said. “Every year we lose more of our loggers because there’s not enough to keep everyone going.”The Forest Service has been considering a range of options for the Tongass. But in August, the Washington Post reported that a conversation between Gov. Mike Dunleavy and President Donald Trump tipped the scales, and the U.S. Forest Service started working on the full exemption.Joel Jackson, the President of the Organized Village of Kake, says he’s worried about what these changes could mean for his community. Kake is a remote village that depends on the wild food the Tongass provides. Historically, large-scale industrial logging damaged salmon streams.“You know it’s sad that we have to continue to fight our own government to protect our forests and streams,” Jackson said.He says the Organized Village of Kake is considering filing a lawsuit against the Forest Service. He suspects many other organizations will, too.“We don’t throw our hands up in the air. We just buckle down and start talking [about] what’s the next step,” he said.The full exemption would release 9.2 million acres of wilderness from Roadless Rule protection and open 165,000 old-growth acres and 20,000 young-growth acres to logging. The change would only apply to the Tongass National Forest. The Chugach National Forest would remain under the Roadless Rule.According to Chris French, a top Forest Service official, this could change how the Tongass is federally managed and undo a 2016 plan amendment to move away from old growth logging in the region.The U.S. Forest Service will publish its justification for the change in the federal register later this week.The public will have a chance to weigh in on the proposed change, which is included in the draft environmental impact statement, until Dec. 17.A final decision is expected to be reached by 2020.Share this story:last_img read more

News / Port of Halifax puts real-time terminal performance numbers online

first_img By Ian Putzger 10/08/2018 © Meunierd | Dreamstime.com Companies that are moving cargo through the Canadian gateway of Halifax can now check via the port’s website how containers pass through the terminals.The port authority displays real-time turnaround times at its two container facilities, South End Terminal and Fairview Cove Terminal.“We were working with the terminals and our rail provider, CN. Gathering the information and putting it live on the web was a big step for us,” said Lane Farguson, the port’s communication adviser.This is part of a drive by the port authority to achieve greater transparency on shipments and performance on its patch.Since February, its website has harboured information about the percentage of containers that leave the port within three or four days – the declared objective is to eliminate dwell times of more than four days.The port aims to get 90% of containers off the dock within three days and 100% in four days.According to Mr Farguson, this metric provides better insight than displaying average dwell times of containers at terminals.“It’s a little bit more specific. With four days average, your actual dwell time could be 2-8 days,” he said.Last year, Halifax registered average container dwell times of 2.1 days in the first six months and 1.8 days in the second half.The display of real-time performance data helps to step up visibility and accountability, Mr Farguson said, adding that it also had practical benefits.“A user can look at the live data and schedule a pick-up, and he can see if there is congestion,” he said.Under the ‘Port Operations Centre’ tab on the website, the port offers a variety of information, including current and mean wait times at gates, KPIs and a transit time calculator, as well as more common elements like schedules, tariffs and a directory of service providers.Users can also follow a container’s progress by e-mail. After entering a container number, they can sign up to receive automatic alerts every time the box passes a milestone, such as discharge, loading onto rail, departure from the port and arrival at destination.And the next instalment for the website is in the works.The port has been working on a module that will indicate vessel reliability, measuring actual arrival times against schedules. According to Mr Lane, this should go live within the coming weeks.Further down the road, the port authority want to develop algorithms that can predict a container’s passage through the terminal. However, there is no indication when this is likely to come onstream or what metrics it will use.The overarching objective of these initiatives, says the port, is the creation of a single place where users can find performance and status information. Besides assisting them in their planning, the data can also be used to develop measures to improve performance.The digitisation of the port aims beyond performance metrics.“Our goal is to transform the Halifax Port Authority into a digital organisation that can handle the most recent industry changes with flexibility, agility and resilience, said Karen Oldfield, president and CEO of the port authority, recently.Mr Farguson explained: “The entire supply chain is moving towards digitising data and making it more efficient. We are taking steps to make sure we are part of that.”In time this drive toward digitisation could extend beyond visibility. A number of airports have taken steps to establish platforms that can serve as conduits for exchange of data between the players in supply chains.The port authority’s latest move should go some way towards data exchange and transactions. It announced on August 9 that it would participate in TradeLens, a blockchain-focused global trade digitisation solution borne out of the collaboration of Maersk and IBM on blockchain technology. This aims to develop a secure digital ledger system to bring together shipping and trade partners including ports and terminals, shippers and forwarders.“Just think of what can be accomplished when we combine our local knowledge with global expertise provided through the Maersk-IBM collaboration agreement,” said Ms Oldfield.Halifax has suffered some congestion problems this year at its Fairview Cove container terminal.After a record throughput of 559,242 teu last year (up 16% over its 2016 volume), the port clocked up 275,839 teu in the first six months of this year, an increase of 0.7% on the first half of 2017.last_img read more

With little known about Zika virus, hospitals scramble to stay ahead

[email protected] Related: HealthWith little known about Zika virus, hospitals scramble to stay ahead The threat of Zika virus is reshaping operations at hospitals across the country, as medical teams rush to figure out how best to provide care for pregnant women with the disease and monitor and treat babies with related brain damage.With scientists still trying to better understand the virus — and without any treatments available — hospitals have been forced to adapt to a changing Zika outbreak, particularly in states such as Florida, Texas, and New York that are at risk for local transmission or have seen large numbers of travel-related cases.Hospitals say they have built up their diagnostic tools, started performing more regular ultrasounds for patients, and are keeping closer-than-usual watch on amniotic fluid levels and fetal heart rates. Social workers and physical, speech, and occupational therapists are preparing to work with babies born with Zika-associated defects, should they require their care.advertisement Scientists still don’t know exactly what percentage of pregnant women infected with Zika will give birth to children with defects.That unknown, however, is only one of the mysteries of Zika, which is primarily spread by mosquitoes but can also be transmitted through sex. Scientists are still learning not only about the virus and how it passes from mother to fetus, but also about the ways in which it can affect those who contract it.To bridge the gap, hospital officials say they have assigned doctors to keep up with the growing body of literature and confer with public health agencies. They are also bringing together obstetricians trained in high-risk pregnancies, pediatrician specialists, and virologists and other biomedical researchers.In Miami — the only city in the continental US to see Zika cases spread by local mosquitoes — pediatricians and obstetrician-gynecologists are working hand-in-hand when caring for pregnant women with Zika, said Dr. Christine Curry, an obstetrician-gynecologist at the University of Miami and Jackson Memorial Hospital.They review ultrasound results together, coordinate long-term planning with specialists and the mothers-to-be, and alert doctors on call when to expect a birth from a Zika patient.“When the mom comes for a delivery, the pediatric team has already seen what’s going on,” Curry said. “Usually a pediatrician learns about a kid when they get a page and they come and we hand them a baby.”Doctors say they don’t have good answers yet to the most pressing questions they get from pregnant patients, including if their fetuses are at risk throughout the pregnancy or only certain stages, and how likely their children are to have some sort of developmental problem. Related: Privacy Policy Leave this field empty if you’re human: “That’s a somewhat difficult question to answer right now given what we know about Zika and what we don’t know about Zika,” said Dr. Martha Rac, a maternal-fetal medicine specialist at Texas Children’s Hospital, which has organized a special Zika clinic.Her colleague, Dr. Catherine Eppes, added: “While we can’t tell people exactly what percentage of the time that happens, it’s not automatic.”In addition to microcephaly — a condition in which the brain fails to develop fully and the head remains unusually small — doctors have reported other problems with brain formation, vision, cognition, and joints in babies born to Zika-infected mothers. Even when there are physical deformities, ultrasounds cannot always detect them before a woman gives birth.Doctors also worry about what might happen to children who appear to be fine at birth. In the case of other congenital infections like cytomegalovirus, hearing and vision problems can emerge in apparently healthy children years down the road.“That may just be the tip of the iceberg,” Dr. Jeanne Sheffield, the director of maternal-fetal medicine at Johns Hopkins Hospital, said about microcephaly. Hopkins has also formed a Zika group as Maryland has notched 57 travel-related Zika cases.When Zika first started making headlines at the beginning of the year, and the first flood of calls came from patients who had recently traveled to Latin America, many hospitals were not ready with a coordinated response. As the epidemic spread and more travel-related cases appeared in the United States, teams of doctors geared up to handle a continued demand for information and consultations from patients, especially as the summer mosquito season approached.“We knew we didn’t want to relive what we went through in January,” said Dr. Ashley Roman, director of maternal-fetal medicine at New York University Langone Medical Center, where a multidisciplinary group of experts started meeting weekly in May.The group outlined how the hospital should respond — what updates it should put on its website, for instance, or how many additional nurses it would need — to a variety of scenarios, including the now-real situation of mosquitoes spreading Zika in Florida. Although New York is at a relatively low risk for local mosquito-borne Zika transmission, it has had more travel-related Zika cases — 530 — than any state in the country.The CDC, the American Academy of Pediatrics, and March of Dimes are working on guidelines to care for and track babies born to Zika-infected mothers. But the preparations hospitals are going through now are to ensure they are ready to care for additional infants who may have trouble swallowing, suffer from seizures, and require dedicated care from a host of subspecialists.

Some social distancing may be needed into 2022 to keep coronavirus in check, new study says

first_img Shoppers practice social distancing while waiting in line to enter a Costco in Novato, Calif. Justin Sullivan/Getty Images Related: Senior Writer, Infectious Disease Helen covers issues broadly related to infectious diseases, including outbreaks, preparedness, research, and vaccine development. Likewise, increasing the capacity for intensive care beds could also allow a community to loosen its restrictions, as long as it could cope with the severe cases the increased spread would generate. That could speed progress towards herd immunity — the point where enough people have some immunity that transmission should drop off, they said. Without these extra tools, though, transmission will resurge once controls are loosened, the authors warned.“So I think distancing interventions of some sort are going to have to continue, hopefully lightened and in conjunction with other interventions,” said Marc Lipsitch, a leading infectious diseases epidemiologist and senior author of the study.Infectious diseases epidemiologist Caitlin Rivers said the modeling work will be useful for public health officials and disease experts trying to plan for the continued response to the virus.“What this is saying is that SARS-CoV-2 will stay with us through 2022, that it’s not going to die down to nothing in the summer. So I think it’s helpful for thinking what interventions are sustainable and effective,” said Rivers, an assistant professor of epidemiology at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security. “If we knew that we only had to make it through another two weeks, we might make different decisions than understanding that this is a threat that will be with us for many months,” she added. While acknowledging that intermittent periods of distancing over several years “is obviously a very long time,’’ Lipsitch said loosened restrictions could come sooner if scientists discovered that a lot more people have been infected already and have some immunity. He and his co-authors stressed how critical it is to conduct long-term serology studies designed to map out human immune responses to the virus over time.“On the other hand, there are some indications coming out at the moment that not every case of Covid-19 infection … generates a robust immune response, which would mean that the build up of herd immunity is slower than its anticipated here,” he added.The study does not look at whether imposing social distancing only among certain high-risk groups — including older adults and those with serious underlying health problems — might keep the number of severe cases low enough that health systems would be able to handle them.Another of the authors, Yonatan Grad, said tailoring restrictions to high-risk groups would be an important idea. But one would also need to factor in whether people who had been freed from social distancing restrictions would then interact with people in those restricted groups — something that might depend on the composition of individual households, he said.Lipsitch acknowledged that delaying the development of herd immunity — effectively keeping large numbers of people susceptible to the virus by shielding them from infection — runs a risk of creating a larger wave of illness later, if controls are eased during a time when the virus transmits more easily, as it is expected to do during winter months. But delaying infections buys time, he said.“Pushing bad things out into the future is something we want to do because we should know more about treatments, we may be closer to a vaccine,” he said. “So there is some benefit to delay, but it might be offset in the seasonal scenario where we push the peak into the high transmission time around the winter.” A modeling study on the new coronavirus  warns that intermittent periods of social distancing may need to persist into 2022 in the United States to keep the surge of people severely sickened by Covid-19 from overwhelming the health care system.The research, published Tuesday in the journal Science, looked at a range of scenarios for how the SARS-CoV-2 virus will spread over the next five years. Those scenarios included variables like whether people who are infected develop short-term immunity — less than a year — or longer-term protection. But, overall, the research concludes it is unlikely that life will return any time soon to the way it was before the virus’ emergence.The researchers, from Harvard University’s T.H. Chan School of Public Health, acknowledged the economic fallout from the response to the virus has been profound. And they stressed they were not advocating one course of action over another.advertisement @HelenBranswell Video Chat: How the coronavirus pandemic is testing health tech In terms of the latter, they suggest if infection with the human coronaviruses, HKU1 and OC43, gives some protection again SARS-CoV-2, it could appear that transmission of the new virus was tapering off. But a return within a few years would be expected, perhaps by 2024, they suggested. The two human coronaviruses induce only short-term immunity — less than a year — in infected people.If SARS-CoV-2 triggers immunity of a similarly transient nature, annual wintertime waves of infection might be expected, they said. If the immunity lasts longer, the time between surges of cases might be a couple of years, or more.And if immunity is permanent, the pandemic might burn itself out by about 2025, they said. The researchers suggested, though, that that scenario is unlikely.The model predicts that a one-time social distancing effort of the type currently being employed in most parts of the country will not stop transmission of the virus. If treatments are developed that can prevent Covid-19 patients from progressing to severe disease or if a vaccine is developed, movement restrictions could be loosened without health care capacity being overwhelmed, the researchers said.

The science, explained Helen Branswell “Our goal in modeling such policies is not to endorse them but to identify likely trajectories of the epidemic under alternative approaches,” they wrote. “We do not take a position on the advisability of these scenarios given the economic burden that sustained distancing may impose, but we note the potentially catastrophic burden on the healthcare system that is predicted if distancing is poorly effective and-or not sustained for long enough.”The authors suggest a number of factors will play a major role in the path the disease will take over the coming years — if transmission subsides in summer and resurges in winter, if there is some immunity induced by infection and how long it lasts, and whether people get any cross-protective immunity from having been infected with related human coronaviruses that cause common colds.advertisement Tags Coronaviruspublic healthlast_img read more

first_img Telecom Italia bets on long-term renewable energy Home Vivendi dealt another blow in TIM boardroom battle Telecom Italia’s auditors rejected a request from top investor Vivendi to bring forward a shareholder meeting by a month, as it seeks to replace five directors on the operator’s board.In a statement, auditors said they did not have the necessary powers to convene a shareholder meeting, while confirming it is continuing an investigation into the inner workings of Telecom Italia’s current board, as per Vivendi’s request.A shareholder meeting is scheduled to be held on 29 March, but Vivendi asked for that to be brought forward to the end of February, as a boardroom battle for power continues between the French group and activist investor Elliott Management.Elliott Management, which recently upped its stake in the Italian operator to 9.4 per cent, took control in May 2018 by securing the votes to appoint two-thirds of the board, but Vivendi has been turning up the heat to regain power.With a 24 per cent holding, Vivendi is seeking to overhaul the board by replacing five directors appointed by Elliott Management, which it believes will help to turnaround performance.Vivendi has accused Elliott Management of operating as as a pure financial investor, serving its own interests and taking advantage of a drop in the operator’s share price.
