Then, the task was to demolish the material but keeping the spirit, in order to replace the old construction for a “House for Ever”Save this picture!PlanThe metaphor for the design was to imagine that a big ancestral rock was foundin the site andneeded to be carved in order to accommodate the living spaces.Save this picture!© Juan SolanoThis “black carved stone”would be occupied by a 4 car garage, service patio, maid’s quarters and pool baths in the basement; kitchen, dining and living spaces in the first floor.

Pancreatic Cancer Action welcomes Joanna David as Patron

first_img Howard Lake | 9 January 2013 | News About Howard Lake Howard Lake is a digital fundraising entrepreneur. Publisher of UK Fundraising, the world’s first web resource for professional fundraisers, since 1994. Trainer and consultant in digital fundraising. Founder of Fundraising Camp and co-founder of GoodJobs.org.uk. Researching massive growth in giving. Pancreatic Cancer Action welcomes Joanna David as Patron Joanna is married to actor Edward fox and her son Freddie Fox and daughter Emilia Fox are also well-known actors.Joanna said, “I am delighted to be joining Pancreatic Cancer Action as its patron. I first met Ali [Ali Stunt, Founder & CEO, Pancreatic Cancer Action] when I came to support a friend who was playing at a fundraising concert for the Charity. I was moved beyond words and was so impressed by what Ali said at the end of the concert about the need for earlier diagnosis and more funds for pancreatic cancer that I felt I had to do all that I could to help. Having a friend dying from pancreatic cancer at the time made what Ali said all the more powerful and I look forward to working with Ali and her team to help raise awareness and funds for this grim disease.”Commenting on behalf of Pancreatic Cancer Action, Founder and Chief Executive Ali Stunt said:“We at Pancreatic Cancer Action are thrilled that Joanna has accepted our invitation to join us as a patron. Joanna, along with some of her friends and colleagues, has supported us at various fundraising events this past year and we are delighted to have her on board. Joanna has personal experience of losing a friend to pancreatic cancer and her support and patronage will be of enormous benefit as we continue in our mission to make a difference to survival rates for pancreatic cancer.”Pancreatic Cancer Action is a national charity which aims to improve survival rates for the disease through awareness, information and increased funding. Simply, we want more people diagnosed in time for surgery – currently the only potential for a cure.ENDSNotes to Editors:Pancreatic cancer is very difficult to diagnose. However despite the grim statistics, many more people can survive pancreatic cancer but in order to do so they need to be diagnosed in time for surgery – currently the only potential for a cure. Those who are diagnosed in time have a chance of living beyond five years that is ten times greater than the overall average for the disease. Currently, 90% of people with pancreatic cancer are diagnosed too late for potentially curative surgery, with the average life expectancy on diagnosis a mere three to six months. Relative survival to five years is only 3%.Classic pancreatic cancer symptoms are persistent or significant abdominal pain and/ or back pain, painless jaundice (yellow skin/eyes, dark urine), significant and unexplained weight loss. Other common symptoms are new onset diabetes not associated with weight gain, pain in the upper abdomen that typically radiates to the back, upper back pain, indigestion or abdominal discomfort, loss of appetite or nausea and vomiting, pain when eating and Steatorrhoea (fatty stools, often pale and smelly).Pancreatic cancer affects men and women equally and 40 per cent of patients are under the age of 69. While the causes of pancreatic cancer are not fully understood, approximately 25% of cases are attributable to cigarette smoking, 5-10% are hereditary and it is thought that obesity and diabetes are additional risk factors.Pancreatic Cancer Action has spokespeople available from the medical and research communities for interview or comment on all aspects of pancreatic cancer. We also have a number of patients willing to be case studies and/or give interviews.For further media information, please contactAli Stunt T: 0303 040 1770 E: [email protected] W: http://pancreaticcanceraction.orgFor more information on pancreatic cancer please visit www.pancreaticcanceraction.orgENDS Pancreatic Cancer Action is delighted to announce British actress, Joanna David as a new patron.Joanna is one of the UK’s most cherished actresses and has been a familiar face on our TV screens as well as in the theatre and in film for many years.

How does Venezuela keep the coronavirus transmission curve flat?

first_imgCaracasPublished April 9 by Sputnik News (sptnkne.ws/BYXh), this excerpted article was translated by Michael Otto.On March 13, Venezuela and Uruguay confirmed the first cases of coronavirus in their territories, completing the Latin American map of the COVID-19 pandemic. Within a month, Uruguay, a country of 3.5 million people, had more than twice as many infected people as the Bolivarian Republic, which has a population nine times larger. What happened?Wearing a protective face mask, a man walks past a mural of the late Venezuelan President Hugo Chávez in the 23 de Enero neighborhood of Caracas, April 11.Every afternoon since the mandatory quarantine began on March 17, Venezuelan President Nicolás Maduro has spoken on television and radio. Vice President Delcy Rodríguez and Communications Minister Jorge Rodríguez also report on new cases of coronavirus infection in the country, how the disease was transmitted, geographical locations, ages of the victims and the number of deaths.They provide information on the evolution of the quarantine, the compliance with it, and the arrival of medical supplies from allied countries, such as China, Russia and Cuba, and international organizations, such as the Pan American Health Organization. They also discuss the situation of the pandemic in Latin America and the world to place Venezuela and the rise in the curve of cases in context.The Venezuelan government very quickly initiated measures, including the daily briefings, to meet the threat head-on and prevent an uncontrolled outbreak of the coronavirus. Those decisions involved putting millions of people under quarantine, closing cities and stopping much movement in the economy.The decision to confront the pandemic early is one reason why Venezuela’s contagion curve did not accelerate vertically as in other countries of the world, like Italy, Spain, the United States or regional countries like Ecuador and Brazil.As of April 9, a total of 171 [175 as of April 11] cases were reported in Venezuela, 65 recovered and nine dead.“We have a flat curve, that is to say few new cases show up daily [Johns Hopkins data, tinyurl.com/uwns6z5/], and therefore we have a system of care for those cases,” explains Dr. Héctor Ciavaldini, currently a university professor at the Military Hospital and the Misión Milagro. This reality is due to two key measures that were taken.Early quarantineThe Venezuelan government “observed with great responsibility what was happening in the world without taking it lightly and this gave us plenty of time to prepare,” explained Ciavaldini. “When the pandemic reached our continent and threatened the country, we decided to initiate a border closure, to quarantine seven states and, in a short time, to announce a total quarantine.”The quarantine was accompanied by the mandatory use of mouth coverings in public. The immediate response of most of society was to respect the quarantine, a situation that, predictably, has taken on increasing complications, particularly economic ones, as the weeks go by.In charge of all measures related to the epidemic was the Presidential Committee for the Prevention of Coronavirus, which received international advice, primarily from China and Cuba.Early case detectionWhat Maduro called “extended and personalized screening” went hand-in-hand with the closure of the cities and the country — the other key aspect stressed by Dr. Ciavaldini: “We were able to conduct a great national survey because we have a tool, which is called ‘Sistema Patria’ — a centralized database maintained by the state — where more than 20 million Venezuelans are registered.”Millions of people took advantage of that system to signal if they presented possible symptoms of the coronavirus. The government deployed [teams of health care workers going door-to-door] to visit each case and, if necessary, conduct a free screening.Communications Minister Jorge Rodriguez said that 17,854,850 people have answered the medical survey of the Sistema Patria, which yielded 128,000 individuals with apparent symptoms, of which 124,201 have been visited through house-to-house deployment.The survey “allowed the Government to know the additional risk factors, those suffering from hypertension, diabetes, respiratory diseases, which are liable to trigger the complications of the disease.”This massive and personalized process was combined with measures taken for those who arrived and still arrive from abroad [such as a medical examination and quarantine].The comprehensive responseOn April 8, more than 90 tons of medical equipment and supplies from the Pan American Health Organization, UNICEF and Russia arrived in Venezuela for the prevention and control of the coronavirus.International cooperation has been another pillar of the comprehensive approach to the pandemic in this country that has weathered a sustained economic blockade by the U.S.The aid, with the purchase of equipment, supplies and medicines, has strengthened “the preparedness of both public and private health care centers, which were readied from the first moment that the potential epidemic was seen likely to hit the country,” explained Ciavaldini.Different levels of health care were strengthened: “Hospitals were prepared to deal with a probable epidemic, tents were set up in annexes to receive symptomatic people, to triage them before the disease was detected and provide the necessary tests.”That strengthening also occurred with the comprehensive diagnostic centers — central points to perform free coronavirus testing — and with the procedures of the house-to-house visits, coordinated with the [People’s Organization of Communal Power].This set of measures kept the contagion curve under control and also prepared for a possible scenario of increased cases. Dr. Ciavaldini suggested that it is important to maintain the quarantine in order to keep the situation that way: “If we were to suspend the quarantine, with an unknown number of cases out there, which most of the time are asymptomatic, the epidemic could be unleashed and the curve would go up exponentially as has happened in several places around the world.”Flattening the curve worldwideCiavaldini raised another question, a fundamental one — the impossibility of an isolated solution country by country: “It is very important that the curve be flattened in the countries that surround us and the whole world. Colombia and Brazil have a really lamentable prospect at the moment, and as long as the epidemic continues its course there, we cannot sing a victory song here.”The prospect of an end to the quarantine is uncertain, both in timing and in formal terms. Ciavaldini mentioned the possibility of “periodic quarantines,” as did Jorge Rodríguez where “we go out on the street in a monitored system, probably everyone wearing a face mask, a lot of vigilance, and in case of an outbreak we go back to quarantine.”[Scientists around the world are] working on the discovery of a virucide or a vaccine [which could provide a definitive solution]. As a matter of public record, that should take between 12 and 18 months. Meanwhile, the goal is to keep the curve under control, reduce new cases to zero and allow those who have become ill to recover.FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thisFacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmailPrintMoreShare thislast_img read more

Ten years after launch of blog, murdered Maltese journalist Daphne Caruana Galizia faces posthumous barrage of libel lawsuits

first_img RSF_en Use the Digital Services Act to make democracy prevail over platform interests, RSF tells EU Through Running Commentary, Caruana Galizia emerged as one of Malta’s leading media personalities, and became known for her acerbic wit and relentless and detailed exposure of the misdeeds of the country’s rich and powerful. Stories she broke became the central issues in an early general election in 2017. But the popularity of the blog, coupled with her work on the Panama Papers and other investigative reporting, also contributed greatly to the growing pressures Caruana Galizia faced in the run-up to her murder. At the time of her death, there were no fewer than 42 civil and five criminal defamation lawsuits open against her, and she was regularly threatened and harassed, yet she refused to be silenced.Just half an hour after publishing what was to be her final blog post, Caruana Galizia was killed on 16 October 2017 by a car bomb that detonated as she drove away from her home in Bidnija. Though arrests have been made and three men are set to stand trial upon conclusion of the law courts’ compilation of evidence related to the case, Reporters Without Borders (RSF) continues to emphasise the need for full justice in Caruana Galizia’s case – that is for all those involved in the planning and the carrying out of the attack to be identified and prosecuted.RSF UK Bureau Director Rebecca Vincent is currently in Malta to join a vigil on 2 March marking 10 years since the launch of Running Commentary, and honouring the life and work of Caruana Galizia.Whilst in Malta, Vincent also monitored hearings on 1 March in 26 libel cases that continue against Caruana Galizia: one case brought by Malta’s Prime Minister Joseph Muscat; two cases brought by Minister for Tourism Konrad Mizzi; two cases brought by the Prime Minister’s Chief of Staff Keith Schembri; one case brought by former Deputy Governor of the Central Bank Alfred Mifsud; one case brought by the head of Malta’s 2015 Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting task force Phyllis Muscat; and 19 cases brought by businessman Silvio Debono.Despite the high number of hearings scheduled, there were no substantive developments in these cases on 1 March due to the illness of one lawyer, a request for more time from another lawyer, and the failure of Keith Schembri’s lawyer to bring any witnesses to court. One of these witnesses was found to be in contempt of court, and his arrest was ordered to compel his attendance at the next hearing on 7 May. Including these cases, a total of 34 defamation cases continue against Caruana Galizia posthumously. The five criminal cases were closed upon her death.“We have gathered repeatedly in London to remember the life and work of Daphne Caruana Galizia and to call for justice for her murder, and now it is my honour to join this gathering in Valletta in solidarity with her loved ones and supporters. All those involved in this heinous attack – including the masterminds as well as the perpetrators – must be brought to justice, as any degree of impunity will set a dangerous precedent with implications far beyond Malta“, said Rebecca Vincent.The 2 March vigil, organised by anti-corruption group Il-Kenniesa and co-sponsored by RSF, will take place outside Parliament in Valletta at 18:00 local time. All are welcome to attend.Press contact: Rebecca Vincent on [email protected] or +44 (0)7583 137751.

Haart branch apologises after prospecting letter suggests Purplebricks is in financial trouble

first_imgAn over-enthusiastic member of staff at a branch of Haart Estate Agents in Nottingham has sent out prospecting letters to Purplebricks vendors that incorrectly suggested the hybrid agency is suffering from a ‘lack of funds’.Purplebricks customer and Nottingham University employee Dan Hodgett, who has now sold his £120,000 two-bedroom terraced house (pictured, above) in the Forest Hills area of the city via the hybrid agency, received one of the letters in mid-November and visited the Haart branch to complain.The letter offered Haart as an alternative ‘should Mr Hodgett require the services of an estate agent at short notice’.Mr Hodgett (pictured, left), along with other local recipients of the letter, has now been issued with an apology for any distress the original communication caused.This appears to have confused Purplebricks with its former online rival eMoov, which is now in administration.“The letters were sent out in error to a small number of recipients by an over-enthusiastic member of staff who had not received head office approval,” a Haart spokesperson told local website NottinghamLive.“Unfortunately he mistakenly claimed that Purplebricks were having financial issues when it was, in fact, a different online agency that was experiencing problems and which has subsequently gone into administration.“After this emerged, we apologised unreservedly to Purplebricks who accepted our apology, plus we wrote and apologised to the recipients of the original letters.“We have reviewed our internal procedures and requested that any marketing letters are sent to our head office for approval first.” haart Purplebricks Nottingham Emoov January 8, 2019Nigel LewisWhat’s your opinion?

USS Cole Helps Keep German Navy’s Vessel Running

first_img View post tag: running View post tag: FGS Schleswig Holstein December 3, 2014 Authorities View post tag: helps German Navy’s Brandenburg-class frigate FGS Schleswig-Holstein (F 216) experienced an engineering casualty recently in one of its diesel engines and requested assistance from the US Navy’s Arleigh Burke-class guided-missile destroyer USS Cole (DDG 67).The cause of the casualty was a 1.5mm metric nut that held down one of the pistons on a diesel engine. The Germans were unable to repair or replace the part, and it had caused them to make an unscheduled stop in Souda Bay, Greece for assistance.Machinery Repairman 1st Class Phillip Markets was called to assist with the issue. Being a machinery repairman, manufacturing repair parts like the nut the Germans needed was second nature to Marcotte, but this job was a particular challenge for him.First off, it was metric, which is totally different from what we use in the U.S. Navy.I also had to custom-make a high-speed internal threading tool because we didn’t have a small enough threading tool aboard the ship for the lathe.After creating the tool and reconfiguring the ship’s lathe, a machine which crafts parts for metric threading, Marcotte made a brass prototype to test the fit.With a successful prototype made, Marcotte found a hex-head bolt and crafted a nut from it.The following day, the part, which fit perfectly, was installed aboard the Schleswig-Holstein. The repair allowed the German ship to regain maximum fuel economy for their engines and depart on schedule later that day.[mappress mapid=”14606″]Press release, Image: US Navy View post tag: Naval View post tag: keep View post tag: Navy View post tag: americascenter_img View post tag: News by topic View post tag: vessel View post tag: USS Cole View post tag: europe Back to overview,Home naval-today USS Cole Helps Keep German Navy’s Vessel Running View post tag: German Navy USS Cole Helps Keep German Navy’s Vessel Running Share this articlelast_img read more
