first_imgOutotec has launched a new series of cooling towers offering what it states are “major environmental, safety and performance benefits in processes requiring efficient direct cooling”, including zinc spent electrolyte cooling and copper solvent extraction gypsum removal and other uses. The Outotec Cooling Towers offer increased cooling capacity as well as lower emissions to air.The most important change is that the air flows out of demisters horizontally, not vertically, as in conventional cooling towers. This allows for higher speed airflow in the demisters resulting in the ability to use more cooling air. In addition to the horizontal demister’s increased efficiency, the new technology’s careful nozzle placement ensures efficient droplet distribution and separation, reducing emissions to as low as 20% of traditional cooling tower designs.The new structure and high efficiency fans also improve cooling air flow distribution inside the tower. Furthermore, the inflow of the air can be adjusted dynamically so that the out-flowing solution temperature can be controlled. Benefits include environmental friendliness; safe and easier maintenance; more capacity in one tower; less space, piping, energy and operating costs; and lower emission levels.last_img read more

first_imgAN EXPLOSION AT a chemical factory in Japan killed at least five people and injured a dozen more today, police said.The blast happened in the early afternoon at the plant in Yokkaichi, central Japan, when maintenance crews were working on a heat exchanger used in the production of silicon products, a plant spokesman told AFP.Initial reports put the death toll at two, but they were quickly revised upwards.“Five people are dead. 12 people have been injured, of whom nine sustained only minor injuries,” said a spokeswoman at Mie prefectural police.A separate police spokesman told AFP the plant, run by Mitsubishi Materials, makes parts for solar panels and automobiles, dealing with polymers made from silicone, hydrogen and chlorine.“The explosion occurred but there is no fire. We received an emergency call at 2.09pm (5.09am GMT)…and at 2.21pm the incident appeared to have calmed down,” he said.Hiroki Morofuji, an official at the plant, said the incident had involved maintenance workers at the plant, sited in a heavily industrialised region.Mitusbishi Materials, headquartered in the Japanese capital, makes a range of products including auto parts, silicon wafers for memory chips used in consumer electronics, and cement for road and bridge construction.The company, which reported sales of about $12.2 billion in its latest fiscal year, has over 22,000 employees and operations across the globe including in the United States, Brazil, Germany and India, according to its website.- © AFP, 2014Read:China gives Japan ‘severe reprimand’ over PM’s war shrine visit>last_img read more

first_imgBy talking about boarding school experiences, Tlingit elders in Juneau are turning painful memories into sources of healing – healing for themselves and generations still living with the consequences.The nonprofit arm of the local urban Native corporation is using those stories to create a K-12 curriculum that will focus on the impacts of colonization on the Tlingit people.Download AudioTlingit elder Della Cheney talks during a panel discussion on boarding schools at the “Sharing Our Knowledge; A Conference of Tlingit Tribes & Clans.” In the 1920s and 1930s, Cheney’s parents attended Sheldon Jackson School in Sitka. (Photo by Lisa Phu/KTOO)Della Cheney and other elders have been meeting once a month at Goldbelt Heritage Foundation since August.“We’re helping to write down the story of how boarding schools are affecting us and our families today, so that our children and grandchildren will know the history and realize the changes our families, our people faced,” said Cheney, who’s originally from Kake. She was part of panel of Tlingit elders during the recent clan conferencein Juneau.From the late 1800s to the mid-1900s, the federal government split up families and forced Native children into boarding schools to assimilate. Many were also raised in orphanages.“That time is still walking with us today,” Cheney said. “The people who were raised with no love or affection in a very hostile environment also raised their children without much nurturing or affection. So today we see some of our families suffering from abuse.”Cheney said both her parents attended Sheldon Jackson School in Sitka. Her mother was only 10 when she was brought there in 1923.“It just breaks my heart to think that I was raised in such a loving family and to know that my mother and father weren’t,” Cheney said.But those who went to boarding schools persevered, Cheney said. In Kake, they fought to make the village a first class city in 1951, allowing the community to operate its own school system.Emma Shorty is from Teslin, Yukon. She was 4 years old when she was taken away from her home in 1937 to go to residential school in Carcross.“We were never allowed to go anywhere,” Shorty said. “We had to stay in one yard. They put a fence around the school. They used to lock the fence and when we went to bed, they would lock our doors and there were no bathrooms to go to, so we got into trouble for wetting our beds.”Shorty said she was molested at the school.“I learned to forgive. I wasn’t always kind. Residential school just about killed my spirit. Today I forgive them,” Short said.She fought hard to have her first daughter go to public school, even though she was turned away again and again for being Tlingit.Tlingit elder John Martin said boarding schools “was a form of prison.” (Photo by Lisa Phu/KTOO)John Martin went to boarding school in Eklutna and then to the St. Pius X Mission in Skagway, “but instead of Christianity, there were some ugly things that went on.” Martin said he would not speak about it.Martin said many of the elders are still hurt.“By putting us in boarding schools, it was a form of prison,” Martin said. “They disrupted our learning process of the language. They actually took a way of life from us when our elders were teaching us how to gather food.”Martin said telling the stories from that time and identifying the hurt is the beginning of healing.Developing the new Goldbelt Heritage curriculum is a multi-year process. Besides boarding schools, it will also share the history of the Douglas Indian Village burningand the Douglas Indian cemetery relocation.The curriculum will be used during summer academic programs at Goldbelt Heritage and will be available for the Juneau School District.last_img read more

first_imgDhaka University`s Ruqayyah Hall provost Zinat Huda briefs the media at the DU teachers’ club on Thursday. Photo: Dipu MalakarDhaka University’s Ruqayyah Hall provost Zinat Huda on Thursday said she does not know that Bangladesh Chhatra League (BCL) leaders insulted female students who started a fast unto death in front of hall gate demanding fresh DUCSU polls.BCL is the student wing of ruling Bangladesh Awami League.“It’s not our concern if students are insulted outside the hall gate. Our concern is to bring them back to hall,” she told the newsmen at a briefing at the DU teachers’ club on Thursday.Ruqayyah Hall students Saida Afrin Safi, Rafia Sultana, Shrabanna Shafique Dipti, Joyonti Reza and Pramik Esha started their fast unto death around 9:30pm on Wednesday placing a 4-point demand including fresh Dhaka University Central Students’ Union (DUCSU) polls.They also demanded the resignation of Zinat Huda, withdrawal of all cases against the independent candidates and their supporters, DUCSU vice president-elect Nurul Haq and security of all the students on the campus.BCL’s general secretary and also DUCSU GS-elect Golam Rabbani along with his followers hurled abusive comments on them around 2:00am Thursday, the demonstrating students alleged.Shrabanna Shafiq Dipti said, “Golam Rabbani along with others tried to prove that we are characterless.””And we have been demonstrating after taking liquor and cannabis,” she quoted Golam Rabbani as saying.Rabbani, however, claimed he went to ensure safety of general students of the hall as the main gate of the hall was open at midnight.“Everyone has the right to demonstrate or strike. But no one has the right to risk the security of other students by keeping the hall gate open at night,” Rabbani told the newsmen.Rabbani also claimed that the demonstrating students were taking drug and are affiliated with Chhatri Sangstha (female student organisation of Jamaat-e-Islami).DUCSU vice president-elect Nurul Haq on Thursday expressed solidarity with five female students of DU’s Ruqayyah Hall.Nur, along with other leaders of the quota reform platform went to Ruqayyah Hall gate at around 1:30pm on Thursday and demanded the university authorities take action against those who assaulted female students.BNP’s student wing Jatiyatabadi Chhatra Dal (JCD) leader and DUCSU VP candidate Mostafizur Rahman also expressed solidarity with the students.DUCSU election, held after 28 years on Monday, was marred by various irregularities carried out by BCL. Almost all the participating panels boycotted the polls alleging vote rigging.last_img

first_imgThere’s a new board game on the way, and after spending a few weeks with it I find it’s one of the first things I grab when friends are over.Board Game Night is a big part of my household, in fact most weeks it happens more than once. With web shows like Wil Wheaton’s TableTop, there’s been this exciting bump in a desire to spend an evening playing these games throughout several of my social circles. As a result, I find myself constantly looking for fun new games to play with.The guys at 6th Gear Games are about to start crowdfunding a new game through Kickstarter called Stratagem, and recently the team invited me to check out a prototype of the game for myself and see how it plays.Stratagem is remarkably straight forward, which means you’re truly playing against the other people on the table. The idea is to be the first to reach your points goal, which is a number you and your fellow players determine based on how many people are playing. If you’re playing with three people you have more of the board to claim points on, so you can set the stakes a little higher. If you’re playing with six people, you can set a lower score to make the game manageable. It’s all about who you are playing against and what everyone on the board is capable of.As you move across the board, each player attempts to control more and more of the tiles with a series of tokens. Each player has to plot the best path across the board in order to both score as many points as possible and stop everyone else from scoring. You can make a spearhead for the big ten spot in the middle of the board, or control the fringes and give yourself more action cards to help thwart your opponents. Each action card gives you something you can use to either help you or hurt everyone else, and while everyone starts with two of them it’s clear that more is definitely better.Stratagem is a great game for regular and repeated play, because it allows you to play against the other people on the board with very little chance involved. It’s a true strategy board game, which means as long as you aren’t playing against people who are much, much smarter than you it’ll be a lot of fun.You can back the project and claim your own copy of Stratagem by heading on over to the Kickstarter page right now.last_img read more

DOI: 10.1103/PhysRevLett.115.197701 Explore further The scientists, Yasuhiro Yamada, Youhei Yamaji, and Masatoshi Imada at The University of Tokyo (Yamada is currently at Osaka University), have published a paper on the counterintuitive exciton lifetime enhancement in a recent issue of Physical Review Letters.”The principle of better efficiency by energy dissipation and decoherence has already been inferred by the photosynthesis process at the chloroplasts,” authors told Phys.org. “However, it has remained as speculation until now.”As the researchers explain, understanding this enhancement requires a microscopic understanding of that way that energy is converted from sunlight into electricity—or, in terms of particles, from photons into excitons, the latter of which are bound states of an electron and an electron hole.In this energy conversion process, there is usually a tradeoff when it comes to the photon absorption rate of the photovoltaic material. A high absorption rate is beneficial for the first step when excitons are generated from incoming photons, but harmful in a later step when the electrons and electron holes must be separated at different electrodes. Unfortunately, before this charge separation can occur, the high absorption rate causes more of the excitons to quickly recombine back into photons, which are emitted back into the environment.In the new study, the scientists showed that there is a way to reap the benefits of a high absorption rate without paying the price later on because exciton recombination can be suppressed by—quite surprisingly—dissipation and decoherence. Normally, these two effects are considered harmful to photovoltaic efficiency: energy dissipation means that some energy is lost to the environment; and due to decoherence, the quantum coherence between photons and excitons that helps promote exciton generation loses its quantumness and becomes classical. Despite these drawbacks, the researchers here showed that a certain amount of dissipation, combined with an optimal coexistence of coherence and decoherence, can increase the exciton lifetime so that it has enough time to separate into an electron and hole before recombination occurs.

The results provide new guidelines for exploring new photovoltaic materials that may offer unexpectedly high efficiencies. “Normally, the separation process takes much longer time than the recombination process,” authors explained. “Therefore, we need to elongate the exciton lifetime to wait until the separation process works.”To do this, the mechanism transforms short-lived “bright excitons” into longer-lived “dark excitons,” which live long enough to be separated into an electron and a hole without succumbing to recombination. Key to this transformation is that dissipation and decoherence impose a desirable quantum-to-classical transformation that makes this process irreversible: a dark exciton cannot be transformed back into a bright exciton. As the researchers explained, figuring this out was not easy to do.”The quantum-to-classical crossover process accompanied by dissipation is at the heart of difficult non-equilibrium many-body problems, and solving it requires developing an efficient computational tool with a new theoretical formulation,” authors said. “After solving the formulated quantum master equation, the principle of optimizing the decoherence and dissipation for the better efficiency has been established in the present work. It overturned the common sense notion that better efficiency should be pursued in materials with better ‘quantum yield’ that have a higher photoluminescence rate. It provides us with new guidelines.”As the scientists explained, part of the reason why the recombination suppression benefit of dissipation and decoherence has gone unnoticed until now is that the mechanism paradoxically causes a decrease in the photoluminescence, or light emission, so that a material with these effects would at first glance appear unpromising as a photovoltaic device. However, the decrease in photoluminescence is a result of the fact that the mechanism converts bright excitons (which emit light) into dark excitons (which do not). So even though more dark excitons make the material appear dark, they are what enable the material to convert light into electricity with a high efficiency.”In the next step, we urgently need to clarify how the separation of the exciton into an electron and a hole occurs with the transport of them to the opposite electrodes to generate an electromotive force, provided that their recombination to a photon is suppressed in the present mechanism,” authors said. “This requires a much longer and complex time evolution process. Another direction of research is of course to design a solar cell with better efficiency by utilizing the present principles and guidelines. This may be done for new candidates of materials.” A model of energy conversion in a semiconducting carbon nanotube, showing that bright excitons are transformed into dark excitons, which have longer lifetimes and so can undergo charge separation without recombining back into photons.

first_imgKolkata: Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee appealed to the junior doctors on Saturday to end their strike and resume work at the earliest as hundreds of patients await medical treatment, including children and the elderly.Claiming that the government has taken all measures for their safety and security, she reiterated that no action like promulgation of the Essential Services Maintenance Act (ESMA) will be taken against the agitating doctors. The reaction of the Chief Minister came after a representation from the junior doctors from NRS Medical College & Hospital did not turn up for talks at Nabanna on Saturday despite the former giving them time for a meeting with her. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata”Healthcare is an essential service that cannot be stopped. I will appeal to them on behalf of the government to please join work on humanitarian grounds and restore normalcy by lifting the strike. I will not take any action against them. Let good sense prevail,” Banerjee said. She also reiterated that “one must show respect to the constitutional body”. “I have cancelled all my programmes and waited for them on Friday. I did the same today (Saturday) as the government is keen to resolve the impasse. I think the state Secretariat, Nabanna, is the highest place for holding talks on such matters. We have shown enough patience and have already adhered to all their legitimate demands. We are open to any other additional demands that may be put forth… But we want an amicable solution to this problem. I have spoken to the Governor and he is convinced,” she maintained. Also Read – Lightning kills 8, injures 16 in stateThe Chief Minister referred to a number of instances where other governments had taken strong action against the agitating doctors. “The BJP government under Narendra Modi in 2009 had imposed ESMA and arrested 150 doctors while they were on strike. The Tamil Nadu government had increased internship of the doctors from one to two years. However, I believe in democracy and my government is extremely sensitive to their demands. I don’t want to take any stern action against them as it will be a blot on their careers forever. Some junior doctors met me today (Saturday) and have said they want to join work. I am hopeful that soon more and more doctors will resume their duties,” she added. Banerjee mentioned that she had felt humiliated when the agitating doctors refused to speak to her the very next day when they had started their cease-work. Reacting to the Ministry of Home Affair’s advisory and demand of an urgent report on doctor’s strike in Bengal, she challenged the Centre to send an advisory to Yogi Adityanath-led BJP government in Uttar Pradesh. “First ask Modi government to send MHA advisory to Yogi’s government [on] how many people have been killed there in encounters”, she said. Five senior doctors led by Dr Sukumar Mukherjee who had mediated in opening a dialogue between the state government and the junior doctors went to Nabanna on Saturday and met the Chief Minister. “We have submitted a status report to the state Chief Secretary that we have been unable to bring the junior doctors to the discussion table,” Mukherjee said. This team of doctors had met Banerjee on Friday as well in an effort to resolve the impasse and a call was made to four members of the agitating NRS doctors to come for talks. The junior doctors at NRS Medical College and Hospital stuck to their stand that the Chief Minister will have to come down to the hospital and listen to their grievances. Earlier in the day, Indian Medical Association president Santanu Sen held a meeting with the agitating doctors and administrative authorities and urged them to hold talks with Banerjee at Nabanna. Though the Out-Patient Departments remained closed, the Emergency services in all the state-run hospitals, including NRS, were functional on Saturday.last_img read more

June 17, 2010 – Breastlight successfully detects malignant tumors and picks up lesions as small as 7 mm, according to data presented this week at the European Institute of Oncology’s 12th Milan Breast Cancer Conference. [1]The handheld device, for women to use at home, was tested in a trial at a breast clinic in Sunderland City Hospital involving 300 women. Patients were examined with Breastlight and findings compared to mammography, ultrasound and biopsy.Breastlight detected 12 out of 18 confirmed malignant tumors, and correctly identified as negative 240 out of 282 breasts. [1] The device also detected malignant tumors as small as 7 mm. [1] Malignancies below 1.8 cm are considered non-palpable. [2]“We were impressed with the sensitivity and specificity of the Breastlight device,” said Matei Dordea, specialist registrar at Sunderland City Hospital. “Mammography sensitivity falls between 60 and 90 percent and specificity falls between 75 and 95 percent. Breastlight’s sensitivity was 67 percent with specificity at 85 percent. We are not saying that Breastlight could replace mammography, but it can reliably pick up abnormal lumps which can be investigated to assess whether benign or malignant.”The Sunderland team see Breastlight’s role in women who find palpation difficult: “Women who have confirmed recurrent cysts find it difficult to palpate. As benign cysts tend not to have a blood supply, they will not show up with Breastlight. However, if women feel new cysts they should always seek medical advice.”Breastlight is a UK invention that works by shining a very bright but harmless red LED light through breast tissue. Veins and other blood vessels show up as dark lines, often referred to as the “map” of the breast. This is normal. If a woman detects dark spots or shadows, this is generally an indication that there is an abnormality. This could be the stimulation of blood vessels (angiogenesis) when a tumor is developing or a benign lesion such as a bruise or blood-filled cyst.For more information: www.breastlight.comReferences:1.

The study, published in the May issue of the peer-reviewed International Journal of Radiation Oncology – Biology – Physics, reported no recurrences or distant metastases at median follow-up of 26 months. In addition, according to the trial results at two years, more than 95 percent of patients and 100 percent of physicians rated cosmesis as excellent or good, indicating both patients andphysicians were satisfied with the appearance of the breast following treatment.“The results of this phase 1 study highlight a new approach for treating breast cancer while minimizing tissue exposure. We believe our protocol offers reproducible and executable guidance for other radiation therapy teams interested in incorporating S-PBI into their practice,” said Asal Rahimi, M.D., M.S., assistant professor of radiation oncology, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, in Dallas, Texas. “Our study shows the benefits of real-time image guidance and motion control whendelivering S-PBI.”According to Accuray, the CyberKnife System enables precise dose distributions to be confidently delivered to the patient with extreme accuracy over a minimum number of treatments, reducing side effects and preserving patients’ quality of life. This technology continually tracks and automatically adjusts the beam for movement in real-time, as the patient breathes normally, throughout the entire treatment session. In addition, the system’s sub-millimeter accuracy enhances clinicians’ abilities to treat effectively while preserving healthy tissue.As technology continues to evolve at a rapid pace in the healthcare field, selecting the therapy that will work best for a particular patient is key to the advancement of precision medicine. Brain Cancer DiagnosticsA new report on the brain cancer diagnostics market, “Brain Cancer Diagnostics Market: Global Industry Analysis and Opportunity Assessment 2016-2026,” from Future Marketing Insights, projects that up to 78,000 new cases of primary brain tumors are expected to be diagnosed globally in 2017, with approximately 25,000 found to be malignant. As research into precision medicine continues, both patients and healthcare professionals are anticipating greater use of this type of healthcare model in the diagnosis and treatment of brain tumors. Healthcare facilities that are already focused on precision medicine-based treatments, such as the San Diego Gamma Knife Center (SDGKC), are working to setthe standard by which other treatment centerswill be measured.Precision medicine is a driving factor in the expansion of the brain cancer diagnostics and therapeutics market, which is expected to grow extensively through 2025 to reach a value of up to $773 million, according to statistics from Grand View Research. HealthIT Analytics states that due to increasing interest, the federal government has allocated $34 billion to the NIH this year for the sole purpose of advancing precision medicine research. SDGKC points out that this initiative is especially important for brain tumor patients, because the survival rate is quite low.As precision medicine-based research continues, scientists and physicians are finding that targeted approaches to treatment offer the most effective options when dealing with many types of brain tumors, according to a SDGKC statement regarding its new technology. The center said tools like the Gamma Knife stereotactic radiosurgery system can be used to precisely target tumors in the brain. In many cases where the Gamma Knife treatment option is utilized, brain tumors are successfully treated during one minimally invasive, outpatient appointment.Paul Crowe, managing partner of the SDGKC, said, “Brain tumor patients have one of the hardest roads to travel when it comes to diagnosis and treatment. We’re confident that precision medicine is the right way to approach treatment, and since newer therapies can be tailored to each individual, successful treatment may be more likely.” News | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 Mevion and C-RAD Release Integration for Improved Proton Therapy Treatment Quality Mevion Medical Systems and C-RAD announced the integration between the C-RAD Catalyst PT and the Mevion S250i proton… read more News | Proton Therapy | August 06, 2019 IBA Signs Contract to Install Proton Therapy Center in Kansas IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.) recently signed a contract and received the first payment for a Proteus One solution… read more According to the National Institutes of Health (NIH), precision-based medicine is an emerging approach for disease treatment and prevention that takes into account individual variability in genes, environment and lifestyle for each person. This allows doctors to better tailor a treatment protocol for each individual, rather than the standard “one-size-fits-all” approach that is based on average generalizations.Although this term is fairly new, NIH states that the concept has been a part of healthcare for many years. And while the role of precision medicine isstill rather limited, this approach can be seen spreading across the field of healthcare, including radiation therapy.

One example is a new technology coming out of the Cleveland Clinic. Genomic-adjusted radiation dose (GARD) technology can optimize radiation therapy dosage based a patient’s tumor genomics.Cleveland Clinic said the GARD technology, co-invented by Jacob Scott, M.D., of Cleveland Clinic and Javier Torres-Roca, M.D., of Moffitt Cancer Center, offers treatment teams a simple and reliable tool to match radiation dosage with a tumor’s molecular profile. The technology is being commercialized through CvergenX, a company founded by Torres-Roca.“Radiation therapy has been one-size-fits-all when it comes to the dose of the radiation given,” said Scott, a physician-scientist in Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Translational Hematology and Oncology Research. “Radiation oncologists have made a lot of progress in shaping dosage — minimizing side effects and sparing healthy tissue — but the field has largely been left out of the genomics revolution sweeping through cancer care.”The hope is that GARD and other initiatives like it will pave the way for more funding and support to work on customizing radiation therapy using the same genomics tools available in the rest of the oncology landscape. “As we bring radiation therapy into the era of precision medicine, we have an opportunity to make significant gains in this field that will help millions of patients,” said Scott.
