CMAJ editorial blisters Liberal government over age limit in legalizedpot plan

first_imgOTTAWA – An editorial in the latest Canadian Medical Association Journal says the Trudeau government’s plan to legalize marijuana will put young people at risk by setting 18 as the benchmark minimum age for buying pot.The article says cannabis has harmful effects on young brains, noting that the association recommends the legislation restrict the amount and potency of pot available to those under the age of 25.The Liberal legislation sets 18 as the basic age for purchase and consumption, but allows provinces to raise that to coincide with their age limits for alcohol consumption.The editorial says regular use of cannabis by young people can hurt developing brains.The government says the purpose of the legislation is to protect public health and safety, but the bill falls short of this objective, the editorial argues — especially when it comes to young people.It also predicts that the legislation will result in a substantial increase in impaired driving, particularly among the young.“Simply put, cannabis should not be used by young people,” says the editorial, which appears under the name of Diane Kelsall, the journal’s interim editor-in-chief.The article also opposes a provision in the bill which would allow for personal cultivation of up to four marijuana plants, each no more than one metre in height.“Allowing personal cultivation will increase the risk of diversion and access to cannabis that is not subject to any quality or potency controls,” it says.“This is not consistent with the act’s goals of establishing strict safety and quality requirements for cannabis and restricting its access to youth.”The editorial says the legislation should not become law.“The government appears to be hastening to deliver on a campaign promise without being careful enough about the health impacts of policy…. If Parliament truly cares about the public health and safety of Canadians, especially our youth, this bill will not pass.”The legislation and an accompanying bill tightening up laws against impaired driving are being debated in the House of Commons and the association’s position is playing a role.“Medical evidence indicates marijuana impacts brain development up to age 25 and we believe it affects brain function after that,” Conservative MP David Anderson said during debate on Monday.“This government seems to think that 18 is OK. The public disagrees, all polls show that.“How is the government going to address this issue seriously of young people being exposed to this drug prior to when they should be?”last_img read more

first_img LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Advertisement Advertisement Login/Register With: WHAT WERE THE GREATEST CHALLENGES YOU FACED DURING THE FILM?Directing and starring was hard. To be in a scene and simultaneously have to act and then also try and judge if everything else was working, like the camera etc was a challenge for sure. I also felt the scenes that were more sexual in nature were a challenge because it was hard to feel I was being taken seriously in a blonde wig and pasties.WHAT APPEAL DO YOU THINK YOUR FILM WILL HAVE FOR AUDIENCESI hope that young women see a version of their complicated identity in my character. I hope people think about how we live in two realities now, who we present ourselves to be online and who we really are and how both personas can be quite valuable and nuanced. Also, the costume designer Avery Plewes did an amazing job so I think it’s a fun movie visually as well.WHAT INSPIRED YOU TO BECOME A CREATOR?I was tired of just being an actress. I felt I had a lot more to say. I wanted some control over my life. Honestly, I think it just fits my personality. I like having creative control. I think it was a natural progression.WHAT ARE YOU WORKING ON NEXT?I have three television series in development that I have created. I am working on my first feature film that I will write and direct. I plan to make another short in the new year. I have four films coming out this year that I acted in and I am doing post on a webseries that Megan Park and I wrote, directed and created called We’re Adults Now.WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO ASPIRING FILMMAKERS?Never give up. If you can do anything else that would make you happy, do that because this industry is only worth it if it’s the only thing that will make you happy. Have a sense of humour. Don’t be afraid to ask people who are smarter and more talented than you for help.WHAT ARE YOUR TOP 3 FAVOURITE FILMS OF ALL TIME?Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind, Manhattan and Ed Wood.IF YOU HAD TO DESCRIBE YOUR FILM IN THREE WORDS … WHAT WOULD THEY BE?Provocative, Identity and Pink.IF YOU COULD RESHOOT ANY FILM MADE IN THE PAST 20 YEARS, WHICH ONE WOULD YOU CHOOSE AND HOW WOULD YOU CHANGE IT?I would reshoot Notting Hill and make it a very dark, gritty, naturalistic comedy about an actress who’s have a psychotic break and the depressed British man who tries to save her.WHO ARE YOUR MENTORS? (AND WHY)My mother is my mentor. She has helped me so much with all my projects and her faith in me is unwavering. Aside from being an amazing filmmaker she’s just a very inspiring woman. She was the third woman in the world hired by United Press as a photojournalist! Every photo of Terry Fox she took!

Lolzita is her directorial debut.WHAT WAS THE INSPIRATION FOR YOUR FILM?I was inspired by young, very creative women online (instagram and tumblr) who used themselves and their bodies as their brand. I was curious about this kind of feminism where to be sexualized on your own terms seemed empowering, but I also would see the comments under the pictures and realized these young women were also victims of their sexuality. My character in Lolz-Ita is conflicted: she’s empowered by her sexuality online while not being particularly empowered in real life. Advertisement Facebook Twitterlast_img read more

As UN marks Buddhist holiday Ban says spiritual ideals can help tackle

The teachings of Buddhism can offer significant insights on how to face today’s most pressing challenges, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said today, in a message marking Vesak Day, which commemorates the birth, enlightenment and passing of the Buddha.“Now more than ever, we need the spirit of non-violence to help inspire peace and quell conflict,” Mr. Ban said. “This year’s observance, falling at a time of widespread strife and misery, is an occasion to examine how Buddhist teachings can inform our response to prevailing challenges.”Mr. Ban noted that confronting troubling problems is a big part of Buddhism as the Buddha himself – when he was a young prince – left the safety of his palace to discover the four sufferings of birth, sickness old age and death.“While such painful realities cannot be avoided, Buddhism offers insights into how to cope with them. Its history is replete with inspiring examples of the transformative power of Buddhist philosophy,” he said.Mr. Ban also recalled that King Ashoka, who presided over a brutal reign in India in from 268-232 B.C., ultimately converted to Buddhism, renouncing violence and embracing peace.“The values that King Ashoka espoused, including human rights, democratic governance and respect for the dignity of life, are common to all great religions. The fact that he was able to embrace them after years of brutal war offers proof that the goodwill of individuals can end widespread suffering.”Mr. Ban offered his best wishes to Buddhists and expressed his sincere hope that “we may all draw on spiritual ideals to strengthen our resolve to improve our world.” By its resolution 54/115 of 1999, the General Assembly recognized internationally the Day of Vesak to acknowledge the contribution that Buddhism, one of the oldest religions in the world, has made for over two and a half millennia and continues to make to the spirituality of humanity. This day is commemorated annually at the UN Headquarters and other UN offices, in consultation with the relevant UN offices and with permanent missions. read more

Noisy cities disrupt heartbeat and could trigger disease study suggests

first_imgIt is known that repeated exposure to external stresses such as noise, pollution and crowded areas can lead to a range of long term physical illnesses and behavioural issues.  Recent studies have found links between noise and heart related diseases. The research was published in the journal Information Fusion. Noisy cities could damage heart healthCredit:Anna Berkut / Alamy Stock Photo The team are also calling for decision-makers to develop, implement and improve guidelines and standards to protect public health around urban spaces.“Repeated human exposure to environmental pollutants such as noise, air pollution, traffic or even crowded areas can cause severe health problems ranging from headaches and sleep disturbance to heart disease,” added Dr Kanjo.“Many people live in and around urban areas and every day will walk along city streets and get around by cars, trains or buses.“It’s important that the issue of noise is considered when designing city landscapes. Most importantly, local authorities should look at the multiple environmental factors that might affect our health at street level.” The cacophony of noise town centres could trigger heart problems, a new study suggests, after scientists found that fluctuating sounds on busy high streets disturb normal cardiac rhythms.Researchers from Nottingham Trent University found that constant changes in noise – even at low levels – had an immediate and disruptive effect on the patterns of participants’ normal heart rates.The team says their findings add to a growing body of research which shows how our everyday surroundings could have wider implications for long-term health.For the study, shoppers were asked to wear mobile body sensors to monitor their heart rates as they moved about Nottingham city centre for 45 minutes.“We found that rapid changes in noise resulted in rapid disturbance to the normal rhythm of participants’ hearts,” said researcher Dr Eiman Kanjo of Nottingham Trent’s School of Science and Technology.“If this pattern is repeated regularly then there is a danger it might lead to cardiovascular problems.”center_img Noisy cities could damage heart health But the study is the first to use sensors to attempt to model the short-term impact that city environments can have upon the human body.The researchers, from the university’s School of Science and Technology, also found that air pressure had an effect on heart rate as well as an impact upon body temperature.Environmental data including noise, air pressure and light levels were compared to data from participants relating to heart rate, body temperature and movement and changes in the electrodermal activities of the skin.None of the participants had heart problems, but the researchers say it would be useful to study whether people with heart conditions suffered a greater impact.

LAcerp condamne Numericable à payer 5 millions deuros damende

first_imgL’Acerp condamne Numericable à payer 5 millions d’euros d’amendeNumericable a écopé d’une amende de 5 millions d’euros dans un différend l’opposant à France Télécom dans le cadre du déploiement de la fibre optique en France. L’Arcep a sanctionné le fournisseur d’accès à Internet Numericable d’une amende de 5 millions d’euros. Cette mesure a été décidée pour non-respect d’une décision de règlement de différend qui opposait le fournisseur d’accès à France Télécom.Cette affaire date du début des années 2000. A l’époque, le “Plan Câble” s’est développé dans de nombreuses agglomérations. Numericable a alors déployé sa fibre optique dans les fourreaux de France Télécom. Ce dernier demandait à ce que Numericable respecte les mêmes modalités opérationnelles que les autres opérateurs.L’Acerp note qu'”il s’agit essentiellement de processus opérationnels encadrant et formalisant les échanges entre France Télécom et chaque opérateur, pour ce qui concerne les interventions sur le terrain, la réservation de fourreaux de génie civil avant tout déploiement de fibre optique et enfin la réalisation d’un état des lieux exhaustif des travaux réalisés.” Pour Numericable, cette demande n’était pas recevable car elle lui imposait des “contraintes non justifiées”. Mais dans ce différend, l’Arcep a donné raison à France Telecom le 4 novembre 2010. Une décision à laquelle Numericable aurait refusé de se conformer, malgré un délai d’exécution de 2 mois. La Cour d’appel de Paris avait confirmé en juin dernier la décision de l’Arcep. Mais un pourvoi en cassation est en cours. Le 26 décembre 2011 à 10:00 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

Sri Lanka attacks What we know so far

first_imgA security officer stands in front of St Anthony`s shrine in Colombo, after bomb blasts ripped through churches and luxury hotels on Easter, in Sri Lanka on 22 April 2019. Photo: ReutersSri Lanka was rocked Sunday by a series of deadly blasts that has reportedly killed 290 people and injured 500 more.Here is what we know so far about one of the deadliest attacks in the island nation’s history:What happened?Powerful explosions struck in quick succession at three hotels in the capital Colombo. The Cinnamon Grand was hit at around 8:30 am (0300 GMT), and the high-end Shangri-La soon after at 9:05am.Three churches were also targeted in that wave of blasts: Colombo’s historic St Anthony’s Shrine, the St Sebastian’s church in the town of Negombo — north of the capital — and the Zion Church in the east-coast town of Batticaloa.Hours later, there were two more blasts — one of them at another Colombo hotel. At least two of the eight were carried out by suicide bombers, according to police sources and a hotel official.Who were the victims?The blasts hit the churches when they were full of worshippers gathered for Easter services. An AFP photographer saw bodies and debris lying on the floor at St Anthony’s.By Sunday evening, the toll stood at 207 dead and 450 people injured.Police said 35 foreigners were among the dead, including British, Dutch, Portuguese, Chinese and American citizens, with the US and Britain later confirming their nationals were killed.Hospital sources also said British, Dutch and American citizens were among those killed, with Britons and Japanese also injured.India’s Foreign Minister Sushma Swaraj added three Indians were killed.A Portuguese man also died, according to the Iberian nation’s LUSA news agency. Two Chinese nationals were injured, the country’s embassy in Sri Lanka said, according to Beijing’s official Xinhua news agency.Who did it?There was no immediate claim of responsibility, and prime minister Ranil Wickremesinghe declined to identify any suspected perpetrators.At least eight people have been arrested in connection with the attacks, police said, and investigators would look into whether the attackers had “overseas links”.The island nation has suffered deadly militant attacks for years, especially by ethnic Tamil militants during a decades-long civil war that ended in 2009 when Sri Lankan forces crushed the insurgency.In recent years, there have been clashes between the majority Sinhalese Buddhist community and minority Muslims, and in March last year the government imposed a 12-day state of emergency to quell anti-Muslim riots.Christian groups have also complained of increased harassment from hardline Buddhist groups.And, according to documents seen by AFP, the country’s police chief warned top officers 10 days ago of possible suicide bomb attacks on churches and the Indian high commission by the National Thowheeth Jama’ath (NTJ), a radical Muslim group in Sri Lanka. He cited reports by a “foreign intelligence agency”, according to the documents.How did Sri Lanka react? Wickremesinghe urged people to “hold our unity as Sri Lankans” and pledged to “wipe out this menace once and for all.”The Archbishop of Colombo, Malcolm Ranjith, described the attackers as “animals” and called on authorities to “punish them mercilessly”.The government beefed up security and imposed an immediate and indefinite curfew across the country. It also put in place a “temporary” ban on social media platforms “in order to prevent incorrect and wrong information being spread”.Security at Colombo’s airport was also enhanced, according to Sri Lankan Airlines, which advised its passengers to arrive four hours before their flights. It added that passengers with passports and tickets will be able to reach the airport during the curfew.Embassies in Sri Lanka have warned their citizens to shelter in place.last_img

first_img News | Artificial Intelligence | August 08, 2019 Half of Hospital Decision Makers Plan to Invest in AI by 2021 August 8, 2019 — A recent study conducted by Olive AI explores how hospital leaders are responding to the imperative read more Synapse RISFebruary 3, 2017 — Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A. Inc. and Fujifilm SonoSite Inc. will present its comprehensive Synapse Enterprise Imaging product portfolio and its SonoSite iViz solution at the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) conference and exhibition Feb. 19-23, 2017 in Orlando, Fla. The company announced it will also sponsor an educational session titled “Value-based Care, Enterprise Imaging and the Future of Artificial Intelligence and Deep Learning.”The following solutions will be on exhibit and available for demonstration:Synapse VNA— Synapse VNA (vendor neutral archive) is an enterprise-wide medical information and image management solution that serves as a vendor-neutral, scalable, and organizationally-aware storage and distribution system for DICOM and non-DICOM objects. A comprehensive application for storing and providing access to the complete imaging record, Synapse VNA securely integrates more specialties, more devices and more data than other VNAs, according to Fujifilm. Capabilities that will be demonstrated include encounter-based workflows, secure mobile image uploads, organized data flow and management, cloud-based disaster recovery, and electronic health record (EHR) mobile and web integrations, to name a few.Synapse 5 PACS — Designed with speed and functionality in mind, Synapse 5 PACS (picture archiving and communication system) offers subsecond delivery of extremely large datasets. Its underlying architecture promotes significantly less bandwidth consumption and tighter security. Advances in efficiency and ergonomics facilitate productivity and a better overall user experience. The latest design includes server-side image rendering and a zero-download viewer with browser and operating system flexibility, resulting in significant information technology (IT) benefits.Synapse Mobility Enterprise Viewer—Utilizing the latest server-side rendering technology, Synapse Mobility Enterprise Viewer allows providers to securely and quickly stream all patient imaging data to authorized users. It can be accessed directly via web browsers, launched directly from the EHR, or on Synapse Mobility iOS and Android device applications. It includes a zero-footprint DICOM and non-DICOM image and report viewer for the entire patient record, a unique collaboration feature for DICOM and non-DICOM datasets that uses real time audio/video capabilities for live conferencing, and a new Share feature to exchange images or launch into other third-party integrations.Synapse RIS—Synapse RIS (radiology information system) is a full-featured, workflow management system that is fully integrated with Synapse PACS. It features an advanced Scheduling Intelligence Engine, patient portal, business intelligence analytics and has a flexible architecture with modern interoperability standards, allowing practices to easily integrate with physicians in their community. Productivity-boosting tools include universal worklist and paperless consent forms.SonoSite iViz—Advancing Fujifilm’s integration of ultrasound with medical IT, iViz was designed for ultra-mobility. It allows seamless access to patient information as well as the ability to store exam findings, submit reports and consult with remote providers for near real-time assessment, making it especially suited for field use.
