Croatia: Brodosplit Secures Order for Two Multi-Purpose …

first_imgzoom Brodosplit shipyard, Croatia, has signed a contract for the construction of two multi-purpose container vessels for shipping company “Brodosplit-Plovidba”.The special feature of the project is that the ships will use LNG fuel (liquefied natural gas). The vessels will have a low speed 2 stroke “dual fuel” (LNG/HFO) engines that have higher efficiency (lower energy) and work at lower rpm (low speed engines), resulting in lower maintenance costs and longer life span.The boxships will have four to five times lower cost per mile than the other ships of this class. Due to more efficient consumption and superb efficiency, investment in the 2 stroke “dual fuel” engines will be paid out after two to three years of exploitation.Extremely important in this project is that the engines will be made by the Brodosplit diesel engine factory, under the license of the MAN.The steel cutting ceremony for the first vessel is scheduled for for Q3 of 2014. 此页面无法正确加载 Google 地图。您是否拥有此网站?确定 Brodosplit Shipyard, October 21, 2013 My location Print  Closelast_img read more

Maha 2 dead 5 injured as building collapses

first_imgThane: At least two persons were killed and five others injured after a four-storey building collapsed in Bhiwandi town in the district early on Saturday, barely an hour after it was evacuated as cracks were seen in it, an official said.The incident occurred around 1.30 am, he said. The tragedy could have been much worse had the families residing in the residential complex not been moved out in time after cracks were spotted in it late Friday night, the official said. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM'”The building named ‘Manahara’, located at Pirani Pada in Shantinagar area, was very old and dilapidated.

Seven candidates run for MPs job in BCs NanaimoLadysmith byelection

first_imgNANAIMO, B.C. — Voters are heading to the polls to elect a member of Parliament in the British Columbia riding of Nanaimo-Ladysmith today in what could be an indicator of the October federal election.The leaders of the Liberals, Conservatives, Greens, NDP and the People’s Party of Canada have all visited the riding since the byelection was called.David Black, a political communications expert at Royal Roads University in Victoria, says that highlights the importance of the vote so close to a federal election.He says the parties would have used the byelection as a study for political messaging before the Oct. 21 general election.There was a 75 per cent turnout when New Democrat Sheila Malcolmson won the riding in 2015, and Black says such a high return can lead to a less predictable race.Malcolmson won with 33 per cent of the vote, while the Liberal and Conservative candidates both received over 23 per cent support and the Green candidate took almost 20 per cent of votes.There are seven candidates running in the byelection: New Democrat Bob Chamberlin, Jennifer Clarke of the People’s Party of Canada, Liberal Michelle Corfield, Conservative John Hirst, Jakob Letkemann of the National Citizens Alliance, Green Paul Manly and Brian Marlatt of the Progressive Canadian Party.

UN envoy for children in conflict welcomes commitments at recent summit

“These [Paris] Principles relate to the duty of ground recruitment and release of child soldiers and also with regard to the reintegration of child soldiers… and we are very happy many of the countries that were affected were present,” the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Children and Armed Conflict Radhika Coomaraswamy, who attended the conference on Monday and Tuesday, told reporters.Representatives from 58 countries committed themselves to putting an end to the unlawful recruitment and use of children in armed conflicts, as well as to ensuring that conscription and enlistment procedures for recruitment into armed forces comply with applicable international law.The UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), a co-host of the conference along with the French Government, has welcomed the agreement but noted that political and legal efforts are not enough on their own to end child recruitment as effective social programmes are also required to tackle its root causes.Ms. Coomaraswamy, who recently visited Sudan along with UNICEF’s Deputy Executive Director, said recent agreements to end abuses of children in that country must now be implemented, while she also pointed out new concerns caused by the breakdown of the social fabric in Darfur and in Juba and other areas of southern Sudan.“All I’m saying is that commitments are being made, implementation is another issue and we have to watch that all the time, but the commitments are being made,” she told reporters, referring to pledges made last week by Sudan’s Government and armed groups to reinforce child protection.“There were a few other concerns relating to children… the first is that the destruction of the social fabric has led to a great many orphans and street children, which is a new phenomenon in Sudan and there’s need for UN programmatic intervention in this regard.”“Secondly… the issue of re-integration is not working so well and therefore we and UNICEF will sponsor a major study in Juba to see how children who have been taken back into their communities, whether they are being reintegrated properly and to study really what social services are needed in the community to keep the children there,” she added, referring to attempts to integrate child soldiers. 8 February 2007The top United Nations official dealing with children and armed conflict today hailed agreements reached earlier this week in France, known as the Paris Principles, aimed at ending the unlawful recruitment and use of children in warfare, but she also highlighted increasing problems for children in strife-torn Sudan. read more

Nearly 3 million people in developing nations receiving HIV treatment UN says

2 June 2008The close of 2007 witnessed almost 3 million people in low- and middle-income countries receiving anti-retroviral (ART) treatment, but nearly twice that number still require life-saving medicines, according to a new United Nations study released today. The report, entitled “Towards Universal Access: Scaling Up Priority HIV/AIDS Interventions in the Health Sector,” noted that almost one-third of the estimated 9.7 million people in need of ART received it by the end of 2007, leaving nearly 7 million without access. A joint effort by the UN World Health Organization (WHO), the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF), the study also pointed to other progress, such as improved access to interventions to prevent mother-to-child HIV transmission, increased testing and counseling and stepped up commitment to male circumcision in heavily-affected areas in sub-Saharan Africa. “This represents a remarkable achievement for public health,” says WHO Director-General Margaret Chan. “This proves that, with commitment and determination, all obstacles can be overcome. People living in resource-constrained settings can indeed be brought back to economically and socially productive lives by these drugs.” The 3 million target, though originally intended to be achieved by 2005, was achieved due to enhanced availability of ART largely as a result of price reductions, boosted delivery systems and increased demand for the treatment. By the end of last year, almost half a million women – up from 350,000 in 2006 – had received ART to prevent the transmission of HIV to their unborn children. Meanwhile, 200,000 children had access to the treatment, compared to 127,000 at the close of 2006. “We are seeing encouraging progress in prevention of HIV transmission from mother to newborn,” said UNICEF Executive Director Ann M. Veneman, adding that the report should spur increased action to help children and families affected by HIV/AIDS. Among the obstacles to treatment cited by the study are poor patient retention rates and large numbers of people unaware of their HIV status. Tuberculosis is one of the leading causes of death among those living with HIV, and the number one cause in Africa. Currently, the report warned that HIV and tuberculosis treatments are not sufficiently integrated, and many die as a result of not being able to access medicines to treat both diseases. read more

Ship anchored off Panadura begins sinking

If the ship sinks the oil could harm a vast area of marine life and also get washed ashore in Panadura and adjoining areas and pose a threat to other forms of life as well. The vessel was found drifting off the coast of Panadura three years ago and had been anchored there since, pending the outcome of a Court case. MV Thermopylae Sierra was detained over a dispute on its cargo and with the court case dragging the condition of the ship had been deteriorating.Engineers were kept on board the vessel but they withdrew saying they had not been given food or other facilities. (Report by Indika Sri Aravinda) A foreign ship anchored off Panadura for the past three years has begun sinking, a ship engineer told the Colombo Gazette today.Second Engineer M. Muheen said that a  nearby navy camp had informed the engineers to take urgent measures to prevent the ship from sinking as that could result in an oil leak. However the engineers have refused to address the issue as they have not been paid their dues by the owning company of the vessel. read more

MOD claims Uthayan orchestrated attack

Meanwhile the army rejected allegations that troops in Jaffna may have carried out the attack. “The setting fire to Uthayan newspaper printing office has been an inside job to tarnish the government’s image,” he said. He said that according to preliminary investigations carried out by the authorities the damage caused by the latest attack is not excessive.“Only three paper rolls are partially burnt along with few papers, no damage to any printing machines, and power supply has been interrupted due to heat. When power is restored the paper can resume its operations, perhaps today itself,” he said.“As things appear, it is obvious that the publicity gained by the paper through this alleged attack on its printing press is enormous. The local as well as international political mileage that the Tamil National Alliance (TNA), as well as other international pro LTTE organizations propagating the ideology of establishing a separate state in Sri Lanka, gain by way of discrediting the Government and Military is much greater than the physical damage. This publicity will surely be used by them to support their widespread claims that international interference is essential for local reconciliation,” the army spokesman added. (Colombo Gazette) The Ministry of Defence (MOD) claims the attack on the Uthayan office in Jaffna early this morning was an inside job.Director General of the Media Center for National Security Lakshman Hulugalla was quoted on the MOD website as saying that the attack was carried out in an attempt to tarnish the image of the government. Army spokesman Brigadier Ruwan Wanigasooriya said the military is duty bound to protect the constitutional rights and freedom of expression is one of the guaranteed rights.“The Military has no requirement to engage in acts against freedom of expression. There are a large number of different media institutions in Sri Lanka and anyone following what is published/broadcasted/telecasted would know that criticism on Government as well as Military are very common,” he said. read more

Sri Lanka optimistic restrictions on tea by Russia will be lifted

Last year (2016) Russia ranked as the second largest buyer of all types of Ceylon Teas (including green tea made in Sri Lanka) at $ 143 Mn–the leading buyer in 2016 was Iran, at $ 154.10 Mn. However, in 2015 Russia was the topmost buyer of Ceylon Tea at $156.65 Mn, and the second leading buyer was Turkey. The watchdog said it had taken the decision to impose restrictions after it found an insect, known as the Khapra beetle, in the packaging of one consignment of tea from Sri Lanka. Yesterday President Maithripala Sirisena said he will make an official request from Russian President Vladimir Putin to end the restrictions imposed on Sri Lanka tea imports.The Russian agricultural safety watchdog Rosselkhoznadzor announced last week that Russia will place temporary restrictions on imports of all agricultural products from Sri Lanka, including tea, from December 18. “I am optimistic of a quick solution. Russia and Sri Lanka have long-standing friendly and cordial relations. The only reason for our concern is that nearly 80% of our exports to Russia is Ceylon Tea. We praise President Maithripala Sirisena for his prompt action in contacting the highest levels of the Russian Government to resolve this,” the Minister said following urgent consultations with his officials. The Government says it is optimistic restrictions imposed on local tea by Russia will be lifted.Minister of Industry and Commerce Rishad Bathiudeen said that the restrictions imposed by Russia is not a total ban on Sri Lankan products by Russia but only a suspension of one item. read more

Developers go around Norfolk council

Sponsors of a major development proposal in Port Dover have side-stepped the public meeting process in Norfolk.Norfolk council announced Tuesday that the 90-unit Misner Landing apartment project has been referred to the Local Planning Appeal Tribunal, the successor panel to the former Ontario Municipal Board.The backers were able to do so because Norfolk did not transact their application within the 150-day deadline in effect when the county received it.Council members are unhappy with this turn of events.Mayor Kristal Chopp said senior staff informed her, Port Dover Coun. Amy Martin, and Vittoria Coun. Chris Van Paassen at a municipal conference in Ottawa last month that council would complete the public-meeting process before the deadline expired. That’s not what happened.Chopp said it is unacceptable that the public’s right to comment on the proposal has been “compromised” in this manner. She told planning staff to come up with a system for tracking development applications so this doesn’t happen again.“This can’t happen on a project of this magnitude that impacts an entire community,” Chopp said. “I know Coun. (Amy) Martin is feeling the heat.”Martin confirmed some in Port Dover are unhappy that council will not register a verdict. They are also unhappy that they have been deprived of an opportunity to comment.“Those in the community who are aware this has happened are upset,” Martin said. “Some have said it’s like this project has found a loop hole.”At issue is a 90-unit apartment complex at the site of the former Misner Fertilizer plant on Lynn Street. A public meeting under the Planning Act was scheduled for Tuesday at Governor Simcoe Square but was cancelled now that the matter is in the hands of the LPAT.The county planners on the spot Tuesday were Shannon VanDalen and Alisha Cull. Neither knows where the information shared with Chopp, Martin and Van Paassen in Ottawa two weeks ago came from.The pair say it is unusual for a developer to seek a direct referral to the LPAT because that is a much more expensive, time-consuming process.The Misner Landing project is proposed for the banks of the Lynn River beside Misner Dam and Silver Lake.In an email Wednesday, planning consultant John Ariens of Hamilton said project proponents Heather-Jo Causyn and Jeff Causyn opted for the LPAT last week after council indicated Sept. 3 that a moratorium on new waterfront development in Port Dover was pending.Ariens said that discussion made it clear that council would not approve Misner Landing as presented, leaving the tribunal as the only viable route. As it stands, Ariens says the proposal “is fully compliant with the current official plan.”“The public planning process has not been compromised by their appeal,” Ariens says. “Rather, the decision to move forward with the interim-control bylaw revealed that council was not going to deal with the required zoning and would – in all likelihood – either defer or refuse the application.“As such, the Sept. 10 meeting was rendered unnecessary. The die has been cast for a non-approval situation and hence the LPAT appeal was initiated.” Norfolk council approved the interim-control bylaw — with some exceptions and modifications — at Tuesday’s meeting.While Port Dover and area residents were deprived of Tuesday’s opportunity to provide input, all is not lost.Cull pointed out that many residents provided oral and written submissions on the Misner Landing project at a preliminary public meeting in June. Input from that meeting, Cull said, is fair game and will be shared with LPAT.“The LPAT will see what the public’s concerns are,” Cull said.Chopp raised the possibility of an interim-control bylaw at the Sept. 3 meeting of council. Chopp said Norfolk has to take care now that waterfront property in downtown Port Dover is coming onto the market.If the county doesn’t put a solid waterfront plan in place, Chopp said Port Dover could end up with developments that the town regrets. A major risk involves a waterfront obstructed by tall buildings incompatible with the town’s maritime character.Chopp added that – when it comes to the future of Port Dover — Norfolk has to ask whether it wants “Niagara-on-the-Lake” or “high-rise condos.”As far as the Misner Landing project is concerned, that decision is in the hands of the LPAT. However that turns out, construction in this location and elsewhere is contingent on Norfolk addressing a water-supply deficit in Port Dover.Word of the shortfall this spring prompted council to impose a moratorium on major new developments in Port Dover requiring significant water allocation. Fixing the problem could take two years or longer, depending on the funding available and the solution adopted. read more

The Buckeyes were able to pull through 25-21, sweeping the Flyers in a 3-0 match.Outside hitters Ayanna Swan and Luisa Schirmer contributed 12 and 11 kills, respectively, to the match against Dayton, both earning spots on the Buckeye Invitational All-Tournament team.Schirmer said she believes her success is a product of team effort the Buckeyes supplied her with this weekend.“Taylor is a great setter and she puts us in really great situations so I can’t thank her enough for all she does for the team,” Schirmer said. “Our passers stick their necks out to make really good passes … I wouldn’t have been able to do that without them.”Coach Geoff Carlston said he was proud of the two players for their accomplishments this weekend as well as the entire team.“We’ve had a lot of people contribute to what we’re doing, and we’re going to need that going forward,” Carlston said. Although the Buckeyes lost their first match of the Buckeye Invitational, Carlston said Ohio State’s non-conference schedule is the fifth-toughest in the country and was built to help challenge the team.“We’ve had some adversity, but I think in the end it’s going to bode well,” Carlston said. “It’s built some calluses, a little bit of toughness and all that resiliency.”The Buckeyes will head back to St. John Arena on Wednesday at 7 p.m. to face Maryland in their first conference game. read more

Wilhelm Löbbe and Konrad Grebe coal plow to be inducted into the

first_imgDevelopers of the coal plow, Wilhelm Löbbe and Konrad Grebe will be inducted in the Underground Production category at the gala dinner in the Brown Palace Hotel, Denver on February 16 ( lead sponsor Stantec. Caterpillar nominated Wilhelm Löbbe (1890 – 1950), who “invented and refined the coal plow in an attempt to modernize and mechanize underground coal mining. The invention of the ‘Loebbe Plow’ in the early days laid the foundation for establishing plowing as the preferred high-productivity longwall mining method for seam heights below 1.8 m.” Separately, Konrad Grebe was nominated by Peter Zuber, Export Manager, Bochumer Eisenhütte Heintzmann. Grebe invented the plow for coal production in thin seams. It was introduced in 1941 at Ibbenbüren colliery in Germany, which is still producing and -of course- only with plows as it only has thin seams.Grebe worked for Ibbenbüren colliery and was the man who drove the development of plowing with the first tests, etc. He had the idea of using plows as extraction machine. The first test machines were made at the mine’s workshop. Grebe was nominated Pioneer of labour” in 1943.Wilhelm Löbbe worked for as the Chief Engineer at Westfalia Lünen, which was the first manufacturer of plows besides the Ibbenbüren mine workshop, until 1950. Later of course Westfalia became DBT, then Bucyrus Europe and now Caterpillar. Löbbe transferred the results of the tests, etc. into a real engineered machine. The combination of chain conveyor and plow into one machine was Löbbe’s accomplishment.Returning to the Caterpillar nomination, Dr Uli Paschedag, Director Product Segment Underground, Caterpillar Global Mining explains that “plowing is a long-known coal mining method invented in the early 1940s. Many different plow models were designed and trialled underground until in the mid-1990s only two models remained: the Reisshakenhobel® or base plate plow and the Gleithobel® or gliding plow. Power and plow speed have increased steadily over time; however it wasn’t until 1989 when the biggest weakness of plow systems was overcome: automated plowing, using electrohydraulic controls, with defined cutting depths. This finally allowed plowing to become the most productive mining method for seams below 1.8 m thickness.“This technology step like most inventions in plowing came from Caterpillar’s predecessor Westfalia Lünen. Another milestone was yet another invention by Westfalia as the world’s first and only really mine-worthy and rugged control system PM 4 was introduced in 1993. Today, three standard plow systems are offered by Caterpillar together with tailor-made plow shields and the currently most advanced electronic shield control system, the PMC®-R. Installed cutting power of up to 2 x 800 kW, coupled with a blazing plow speed of up to 3.6 m/s and world-leading automation capabilities leads to an integrated longwall mining system for medium and thin seams which produces more clean coal at lower cost than any shearer can.last_img read more

Stay in school.— St Cronan’s SNS (@ScoilChronain) December 3, 2016 Waiting our turn & watching backstage! 🎄✨🎅🏼🎁#TV3ToyShow— St Cronan’s SNS (@ScoilChronain) December 2, 2016 “It was a huge commitment,” said Doyle. Some parents even bought new Christmas jumpers for the pupils, while it cost the school €300 to pay for a bus to transport the 49 pupils and teachers to the TV3 studio at Ballymount, on the other side of the city.They also paid for a backing track to be used on the night.The choir were set to perform at the very end of the show, and went to the set in the TV3 studios at their allotted time.The pupils walked on at 8.20pm to get into positions.“They said crackers would go off with confetti and then the music would roll,” said Doyle.“The crackers went off and I was thinking ‘where’s the music, where is the music’ – I thought I faintly heard it and we started singing.” She thought the absent backing track was a sound error.“There was no music,” she said. “Then I could hear what I thought was the music for a couple of seconds – I thought it was still live music so I was conducting away and the children were singing away.”However, she thought she noticed some background noise during the performance, which she thought strange.

Teacher Rita Doyle and principal Loreto Desmond both work with the award-winning school choir and had prepared them for the performance.Speaking to, Doyle explained that the choir, who have performed at the National Concert Hall, were approached by TV3 to perform during its festive broadcast.“We knew it was something the children would love,” she said. They upped their practice sessions, with the pupils coming in for early morning and lunchtime practices in the run-up to the big day. By Aoife Barry Source: St Cronan’s SNS/Twitter Short URL On the bus they were very disappointed and were asking lots of questions: ‘Teacher were we not on?’TV3 has apologised to the school over the issue. In a statement to today a spokesperson said:“Regrettably, a technical error on Friday night meant that the choir who were supposed to sing out our Toy Show Teaser were cut prematurely.“Understandably the choir, their families and TV3 were deeply disappointed that this happened as we had fully intended to have their performance play out.We apologise to the choir and their families and to make it up to the St Cronan’s choir, we have offered to have them on The Six O’Clock Show to perform and have offered to go to them to film them singing if coming to TV3 is not convenient.CommitmentDoyle said she was annoyed given the commitment that was involved from the children, who had to wait for six hours before their performance.The 49 children were from 4th, 5th and 6th class. “Some of them have been in the choir since they started in our senior school. They wouldn’t be used to anything like this,” said Doyle.Principal of the school Loreto Desmond said that it was another teacher at the school who noticed the camera going blank during the performance.When they realised that the choir hadn’t gone live, they consoled the children by telling them it was live TV, and things like this can happen.“By the time we got home, Twitter had gone mad the parents were really disappointed,” she said.We have 600 children in the school. They had every granny belonging to them up and down the country primed to watch. One child even talked about her granny is in hospital and had everybody told in the ward. That is the level of disappointment for the parents.She said that they are keeping the incident in perspective: “But there was huge disappointment in the community.”It’s not the end of the world but it is disappointing and they are disappointed for the children and how excited they were. I am most disappointed for the wider community and the grannies and all of those who were watching and tuning in to see their grandchild or neighbour’s child – they would be hugely disappointed.last_img read more

Cécité liée à lâge sur la piste dun traitement

first_imgCécité liée à l’âge : sur la piste d’un traitementLa dégénérescence maculaire liée à l’âge (DMLA) est une maladie qui ne se soigne pas à l’heure actuelle. Cependant, les chercheurs viennent de découvrir une enzyme impliquée dans cette maladie, ce qui ouvre la voie à de nouvelles recherches qui pourraient s’avérer prometteuses.La DMLA entraîne la cécité chez les personnes qui en sont atteintes. La forme sèche de cette pathologie provoque la disparition progressive de la vision centrale. Une tache sombre envahit peu à peu le champ de vision et rend tous les gestes quotidiens impossibles. Elle est la principale cause de cécité et ne touche pratiquement que les pays riches.À lire aussiMucoviscidose : espérance de vie, symptômes, traitement, de quoi s’agit-t-il ?Due à la destruction de la rétine, la DMLA ne connaît aujourd’hui aucun traitement. Mais une équipe américaine vient de découvrir que l’atrophie rétinienne est liée à l’absence de DICER-1, une enzyme qui joue un rôle protecteur. Sciences et Avenir indique que l’enzyme DICER-1 permet d’éviter l’accumulation d’un ARN Alu, toxique pour les cellules de l’œil. Ainsi, quand la quantité d’enzyme DICER-1 baisse, l’ARN Alu s’accumule en trop grande quantité et entraîne la destruction de la rétine.Les scientifiques ont donc mis au point des techniques permettant soit de stimuler l’enzyme DICER-1, soit de bloquer l’ARN Alu en l’éliminant. Les premiers essais semblent concluants mais il faut maintenant passer aux essais cliniques sur des patients.Le 8 février 2011 à 17:46 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

The Witcher 3 Game of the Year edition launches this month Gwent

first_imgLet us reiterate- this is one those times when a Game of the Year tag is completely worthy. The Witcher 3 is arguably the best game of this generation, and if you’ve been missing out you will soon have no more excuses. The only thing you have to lose is every minute of your free time for the next few months!In other Witcher news, the hugely anticipated standalone Gwent, a multiplayer version of the addictive card game from the series, is on its way. A beta was supposed to be sent out to waiting players next month but CD Projekt delivered the sad news yesterday that it has been delayed a month to October 25. But the company is not known for rushing out its products until they are done, and as the delays for The Witcher 3 showed they are generally worth the wait.Considering how much fun Gwent is in the main game, this multiplayer game has the potential to completely take over our lives, just when we thought we were out. If you have yet to sign up for the beta, you can do so here. If you waited on picking up The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt, there’s no two ways about it- you missed out one of the finest game experiences of 2015.But it turns out that waiting made sense for the more budget conscious of you, because you will soon be able to jump into the definitive edition. It was officially announced today that The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt – Game of the Year Edition will release on PS4, Xbox One, and PC this August 30, quelling months of rumors.This GOTY version will come with the most recent patch, which improves the already wonderful game in numerous ways, as well as every bit of DLC and the two major expansions Hearts of Stone and Blood and Wine. This effectively puts the game up above the 150 hour gameplay mark. The expansions in particular add dozens of hours of quests, and Blood and Wine stresses the fun and silly moments to be had with the series, acting as the perfect send-off for Geralt of Rivia. If you haven’t played those two you’re really missing out on the true ending. <>last_img read more

Bone broth. Probiotics. Gluten-free. While the newest health trend may start with good intentions, the relatively new eating disorder known as ‘orthorexia’ involves obsessive behaviors or ‘food rules’ about what is healthy and what is not.By cutting back on too many food groups or excessively following any of these trends, people can develop orthorexia, which can mirror symptoms of anorexia, such as bone loss, anemia and slow heart rate.In accordance with National Eating Disorder Awareness Week, Anna Nguyen, Licensed Marriage & Family Therapist specializing in Eating Disorders at Sharp Mesa Vista Hospital, visited Good Morning San Diego to discuss what orthorexia is, why we are hearing about it more often, how to tell the difference between healthy eating and disordered eating, warning signs and what it can do to your health.

UPDATE Train Carrying GOP Lawmakers Strikes Trash Truck 1 Killed

first_imgThank you to everyone who has reached out about the accident with the train carrying members to the GOP Retreat. I am safe. First responders are on the scene.— John Ratcliffe (@RepRatcliffe) January 31, 2018 Listen Raw video from the scene of collision involving truck and train carrying members of Congress.— Dan Linden (@DanLinden) January 31, 2018Florida Rep. Neal Dunn, a former Army surgeon, said he and other lawmakers who are doctors joined other passengers who are nurses or paramedics and jumped out with the basic medical gear they had. They broke into three teams to help the injured people in the truck, he said.“The first gentleman was somebody who had really, really, really devastating injuries. We did try to resuscitate, but ultimately you had to realize it wasn’t possible,” Dunn said. He said another man in the truck was critically injured and a third was seriously hurt.Sen. Bill Cassidy of Louisiana and his wife, both doctors, were among those who came to the rescue. He said he helped a man from the truck who was badly injured.“My role was quite simple: I picked up his feet so the blood in his feet would go to his heart and his brain,” Cassidy said.Officials gave varying figures on the number hurt. But Amtrak said two crew members and three passengers were taken to a hospital with minor injuries.Minnesota Rep. Jason Lewis’ staff tweeted that the first-term congressman was among those taken to the hospital and was being checked for a possible concussion. Others aboard the train reported bumps, bruises and sore joints.The GOP policy retreat, an annual event, was scheduled to last three days and feature speeches from President Donald Trump and Vice President Mike Pence. By early afternoon, lawmakers were boarding buses to resume their trip, and Pence was still planning to address them later Wednesday.Rep. James Comer of Kentucky said about 100 Republican lawmakers were on the train when the crash made him jump out of his seat.“I looked out the side of the window and then I could see a truck, just in pieces out the side of the window,” Comer said. He said Capitol police officers quickly jumped off the train but came back and asked for any doctors to help.Other doctor-lawmakers who assisted included Reps. Michael Burgess of Texas, Phil Roe of Tennessee, Larry Bucshon of Indiana and Roger Marshall of Kansas, according to those aboard.House Speaker Paul Ryan of Wisconsin was on the train and was unhurt, aides said.(Correction: US Congressman Randy Weber was not on the train that crashed)  X Along with my colleagues, I was on the train that hit the truck in West Virginia. I’m okay, but my thoughts and prayers are with those who are injured and their families. Thank you to the first responders who were on the scene.— Michael McCaul (@RepMcCaul) January 31, 2018 We’re fine, but our train hit a garbage truck. Members with medical training are assisting the drivers of the truck.— Rep. Greg Walden (@repgregwalden) January 31, 2018 Re: #TrainCrash: We have heard from @replouiegohmert, and he is okay. We have no other firsthand information at this time. – Kimberly Willingham— Louie Gohmert (@replouiegohmert) January 31, 2018 My wife and I are safe. Thank you to all who reached out to me. Please keep in your prayers any others involved who have been injured.— John Culberson (@CongCulberson) January 31, 2018 Roxanne and I were on the train, but are okay. Please pray for those injured in the truck that was on the tracks. They need it.— Brian Babin (@RepBrianBabin) January 31, 2018 Karen, my staff members, and I are all on the train to the GOP conference and we are all safe.— Pete Sessions (@PeteSessions) January 31, 2018 – / 2A train carrying dozens of Republican members of Congress to a strategy retreat in the countryside slammed into a garbage truck in rural Virginia on Wednesday, killing one person in the vehicle and sending several lawmaker-doctors rushing to help the injured.No serious injuries were reported aboard the chartered Amtrak train, which set out from the nation’s capital with lawmakers, family members and staff for the luxury Greenbrier resort in White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia. At least two other people in the truck were reported seriously hurt.Texas lawmakers aboard the train include, Ted Cruz, John Culberson, Michael McCaul, Louie Gohmert, Brian Babin, John Ratcliffe, Pete Sessions, and Roger Williams.Houston area Rep. John Culberson called in live to Houston Matters, and spoke with Craig Cohen, about the train crash: Thanks to all who have showed concern, I am just fine. Please keep in your prayers any others involved in the collision who have been injured.— Ted Cruz (@tedcruz) January 31, 2018 I am on the train and I am OK. We don’t know many details, but security and doctors are here to secure the scene and help those who are injured— Rep. Roger Williams (@RepRWilliams) January 31, 2018The collision happened around 11:20 a.m. in Crozet, about 125 miles southwest of Washington, tearing the truck in two, crumpling the nose of the locomotive and scattering trash alongside the tracks.Rep. Robert Pittenger of North Carolina said he was standing at the train’s refreshment stand, waiting to be served a soft drink, when he felt “an enormous slam. … It was a huge jolt. We all hung on to whatever we had.”He said he looked out the window and saw a big pile of garbage, and it appeared the train had pushed the truck for a few hundred yards.Authorities gave no details on the cause of the wreck, which took place at a crossing protected by gates, flashing lights, bells and warning signs. The National Transportation Safety Board sent a team to investigate.Benny Layne, on whose property the truck landed, said the crossing arms had been known to malfunction often, sometimes not working when a train was approaching, sometimes coming down for no reason. Sometimes, he said, they stayed down for hours.“A guy was up here just yesterday or the day before taking a look at them,” he said.Carrie Brown, human resources manager at Buckingham Branch Railroad, which leases the stretch of track and is responsible for maintenance, said she was unaware of any problems with equipment at the crossing.There were 3 people in the truck that was straddling the track and which the train hit. One is dead. One I am told is being transported but has minor injuries. One has serious injuries—please pray. Laura & I & multiple other physicians tended to the patients until EMTs showed up.— Bill Cassidy (@BillCassidy) January 31, 2018 To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /04:53 Sharelast_img read more
