Moroccan Dutch Man to Develop PrayerReminder Watch for Children

Rabat – Moroccan student Khairi Marhaben is attempting to raise $15,000 via the website Indigogo.com to develop a prayer-reminder watch for children called the “Baba Watch”. He is working directly with his nieces and nephews to create a prayer watch that easy to use, stylish, and compatible with 4GB USB.The device’s developer, a commercial economics student at the Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, has always wanted to create something that can truly help others. He intends to relieve Muslim parents of the burden of reminding their children to pray.He  highlights the benefits of helping children develop a pattern of praying, as childhood is an excellent period for individuals to cultivate good habits. Marhaben hopes this may even help children understand the broader importance of personal responsibility.Marhaben feels that his product will stand out in the prayer watch market. He finds many of these devices “too clunky and complicated” for children because they are designed for adults.  He also emphasizes that “the simplicity of his product will help it remain effective despite the constant distractions children face from the internet and other digital devices.”There are numerous smartphone applications for Muslims designed to remind users to pray and even the correct direction. Google Play and other app providers have many free applications with this exact purpose. However, Marhaben’s “kid approved” design will make this product more appealing to children, according to Marhaben.Marhaben will be using the website visiting ThunderClap to collect funds for his website from December 1, 2015 to January 1, 2016. read more

Calif doctor who promised fake herbal cancer cure sentenced to 14 years

LOS ANGELES, Calif. – A Los Angeles doctor was sentenced Friday to 14 years in federal prison for bilking patients out of more than $1 million by promising them that an herbal supplement she hawked could cure late-stage cancer and other diseases.U.S. District Judge Robert Timilin also ordered Dr. Christine Daniel to forfeit $1,277,083.Daniel, 58, was found guilty of 11 counts, including wire fraud, tax evasion and witness tampering in September 2011.She enticed patients to take her herbal product and charged them as much as $100,000 for a six-month treatment program that she claimed could cure cancer, diabetes and multiple sclerosis, authorities said.Some of her patients, however, died from complications of cancer within three to six months after taking the supplement. In one case, prosecutors contend a 22-year-old woman who had a highly curable form of neck lymphoma died because she relied on Daniel’s recommendation to avoid radiation or chemotherapy treatments.“The scope of Daniel’s fraud was breathtaking,” U.S. Attorney Andre Birotte Jr. said in a statement after Daniel was sentenced. “Daniel robbed victims of more than money — she also stole their hopes and dreams for a cure. Daniel is responsible for a shockingly cold-hearted fraud that has brought her a richly deserved federal prison sentence.”Prosecutors sought a 27-year prison term, while Daniel’s attorney argued that nearly six years behind bars was more appropriate.In all, authorities believe Daniel siphoned about $1.1 million from dozens of families between 2001 and 2004.Some patients also endured additional pain and suffering because they took the herbal tonic provided by Daniel.At trial, experts called by federal prosecutors said chemical tests of the product showed it contained beef extract flavouring and a sunscreen preservative, among other ingredients.“I live with the guilt that I should have seen that none of what she was going through was helping her, but instead was hurting her,” Debra Harris wrote in a letter submitted to the court about her sister Barbara Davis, who was one of Daniel’s patients and who later died. Harris said Daniel’s patients were not only convinced they could be cured, but so were family members who “wanted to believe it just as bad.”Paula Middlebrooks also put her faith in Daniel, who billed her nearly $60,000 over a five-month period to help treat her terminal breast cancer. Eventually, Daniel pronounced Middlebrooks free of cancer and threw her a party. But in reality, the cancer was spreading and Middlebrooks died shortly after she returned to her home in Georgia.Federal prosecutors said Daniel preyed upon people in their most vulnerable state.Daniel “repeatedly demonstrated a merciless and callous indifference to the suffering of her patients and their family members,” Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Johns wrote in court documents. “It is unlikely that our federal criminal justice system will see the like of defendant Christine Daniel again.” by Greg Risling, The Associated Press Posted May 17, 2013 4:36 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Calif. doctor who promised fake herbal cancer cure sentenced to 14 years in prison read more

WestJet CEO ramps up antiunion campaign as more join push to organize

WestJet CEO ramps up anti-union campaign as more join push to organize workers CALGARY – The head of WestJet has stepped up his fight against the growing push to unionize the airline’s staff, telling them to resist organized labour’s pitch because it will chomp into their paycheques.In an email sent last Thursday to the company’s 12,000 employees, CEO Gregg Saretsky revealed that five unions are now trying to certify several groups of WestJet workers after its pilots agreed in May to join the Air Line Pilots Association.“Unions are opportunistically trying to grow their businesses by targeting WestJetters,” Saretsky said in the email obtained by The Canadian Press.“Because let’s be clear — unions are a business. They increase their revenue by recruiting new members, and WestJet represents an opportunity to significantly increase their profits.”A spokeswoman for WestJet confirmed the authenticity of the email, adding that it’s part of an effort to ensure staff are “armed with the facts” about unionization.Saretsky took specific aim at union dues, saying WestJet employees stand to pay $16.6 million a year if the unions succeed.“Money that goes toward union bureaucracy and, in part, to organizing efforts at other companies!” he said.“They get nearly $17 million of your money, or $425 million of your money over a 25-year career. What do you get? That’s the question we urge you to ask yourselves. Isn’t it better to get a cheque than a bill?”The president of the Canadian Union of Public Employees (CUPE), which is trying to unionize WestJet flight attendants, said Saretsky’s email reflects he is “way out of whack” when it comes to understanding unions.“He’s trying to intimidate workers,” said Mark Hancock.“It’s something similar to what we’ve seen out of companies like Walmart, and some of those other big box companies that hate unions, and will say anything to try and scare off workers from joining a union.”He said CUPE only campaigns at companies after workers approach them, and the benefits it has brought to the 11,500 flight attendants it already represents is a clear rebuttal to Saretsky’s position.Since it was founded in 1996, WestJet has prided itself on a unique relationship with its employees that allows them to partake in profit sharing and other benefits. But that connection has been tested as the company embarks upon expansion plans that some rank-and-file fear could lead to tougher work conditions and an erosion of benefits.The unionization drive includes appeals from Unifor, the United Steelworkers, the International Association of Machinists and Aerospace Workers and the WestJet Professional Flight Attendants Association. It comes at a time of rapid growth for the airline, which is aiming to launch an ultra-low cost carrier and expand their international flight destinations.Follow @ianbickis on Twitter. by Ian Bickis, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 13, 2017 2:00 am MDT Last Updated Jul 13, 2017 at 8:40 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Courthouse lawn gets green push

first_imgAs far as debuts go, this one was blissfully quiet. At lunchtime Wednesday, people walking by the north lawn of the Clark County Courthouse could talk to friends without raising their voices over the persistent roar of a gas-powered polluter, er, lawn mower.The grass was getting its regular Wednesday trim, but with new push mowers.The county bought four Fiskars Momentum push mowers ($199 each, plus tax), said Brian Loos, the county’s grounds maintenance crew chief. The eco-friendly mowers were pushed by orange-vested crew members who were working off criminal sentences. Previously, a county employee, wearing safety glasses and ear protectors, had been using a riding lawn mower to cut the 40,000 square feet of courthouse lawn. It took him approximately 90 minutes, including time to fuel up and do machine maintenance.With an endless supply of defendants needing to serve work crew hours, the county can afford to take four people to do the work of one, Loos said. “I’m sure everyone around here appreciates the decrease in noise,” said Travis Effinger, Department of Corrections crew chief.Loos said the Fiskars mowers are easier to push than older push mowers; according to the company, push force has been reduced 30 percent. The mowers require far less maintenance than gas or electric mowers, and the steel blades on the Fiskars models don’t need sharpening because they don’t rub against each other so they don’t wear down.Another bonus? “They won’t launch a rock and break a window,” Effinger said.Lawn debateWith the Board of Clark County Commissioners, even grass can be politically divisive.Last year, the board agreed to have grass removed from the Public Service Center, next to the courthouse on Franklin Street. The patches were replanted with native ground cover, shrubs and trees. The cost-cutting move was viewed as environmentally friendly by Commissioner Steve Stuart, a Democrat, who said grass has its place, but that it takes too much time, money, energy and water to keep it looking lush outside of a government building.last_img read more

Amid expansion Anchorage Police announce new strategy to fight violent crime

first_imgPolice Chief Justin Doll, center, speaking about the Anchorage Police Department’s new crime supression strategy at APD headquarters next to Capt. Ken McCoy, left, and Lt. Kevin Vandegriff, right (Photo: Zachariah Hughes- Alaska Public Media)As property and violent crime continue to increase in Anchorage, the city’s police department is internally reorganizing to better respond.Listen nowSpeaking at a press conference inside Anchorage Police Department headquarters Tuesday, Police Chief Justin Doll announced that the department’s expansion in recent years is allowing it to increase its focus on property, drug, and violent crime. APD’s new initiative has three main elements, all of which, should be fully in place later this October.“Overall, our goal here is to more effectively deal with violent offenders, and run more efficient drug investigations, and gather and utilize relevant intelligence,” Doll told a handful of reporters.Doll said that the internal rearrangement is meant to “streamline that chain of command, make us more efficient, and make sure that we don’t have bureaucracy getting in the way of active investigations and operations.”The changes include bringing officers and detectives focused on drug crime in the Community Action Policing Team and Vice unit under the same command, as well as expanding intelligence sharing with other law enforcement agencies, and adding one detective a piece to the homicide and robbery/assault units. Finally, the department is creating an entirely new unit designed to support larger investigations.“That’ll be things like helping serve search warrants, run surveillance, find witnesses, assist detectives with long-term investigations,” Doll said.“When they’re not doing those things, they’ll provide high-intensity patrol operations in parts of town as we identify hot spots and crime trends,” Doll added of the new Investigative Support Unit, set to be comprised of eight patrol officers under the supervision of a sergeant.Across Anchorage, residents, business owners and elected officials say crime is on the rise, though the causes and degree of increase are hotly contested. Doll agrees there is more serious crime taking place compared to recent years, and sees this new strategy as aiming to make the police department less reactive and more proactive responding to the trend.But the chief stopped short of identifying the rise in crime, either locally or nationally, as attributable to any single cause or explanation.“I think in Anchorage we have a combination of things,” Doll said. “The department suffered from low staffing for a while, and I think whenever you don’t have law enforcement pressure on criminal activity it tends to increase. I think that we’re seeing a rise in the use of opioids, and that tends to affect property crimes because those people need to have sort of income or something they can trade for the drugs that they need to stay not sick. So I think it’s a whole host of things.”Doll says of the 409 officers at APD today there are still dozens in training, with another academy in December expected to further grow the force.last_img read more

The study 2004-2006 Radiation Therapy Oncology Group (RTOG 0236) study was a Phase 2 North American trial of patients with nonsmall cell lung tumors where pre-existing medical conditions precluded surgical treatment. According to Dr. Timmerman, the main finding in this study was the high rate of primary tumor control, which is 97.6 percent at three years. “SBRT as delivered in this trial provided more than double the rate of primary tumor control than previous reports describing conventional radiation therapy. Primary tumor control is essential for curing lung cancer,” he said.Dr. Timmerman and his team used Elekta SBRT solutions.

CLIA Australasia has warned that a proposed Biosec

first_imgCLIA Australasia has warned that a proposed Biosecurity Imports Levy, which was originally aimed at sea freight when announced by the Australian Government last year, but which is now flagged for cruise lines starting as soon as July, will drive up costs for both passengers and operators.CLIA has joined with other shipping and business organisations in opposing the tax.“Extending this new tax to the cruise industry has come as a complete surprise and without proper consultation,” said CLIA Australasia Managing Director Joel Katz. “There is no justification for hitting cruise lines with charges originally designed for freight.”Mr Katz said the Department of Agriculture and Water Resources had indicated the Biosecurity Imports Levy would raise up to $120 million a year in revenue and could be applied to cruise ships upon each arrival into Australia on a gross tonnage basis. He said this would disproportionately impact the cruise industry, which operates with more frequent port calls and often larger vessels than other forms of shipping.“Travellers are already taxed heavily through measures like the $60 Passenger Movement Charge, which is already used to fund passenger-related biosecurity activities,” Mr Katz said. “Australia’s Passenger Movement Charge is one of the most expensive passenger taxes in the world. Including the cruise industry in a tax designed for cargo movement just adds another back-door tax on tourism.”CLIA has called on the Minister for Agriculture and Water Resources, David Littleproud, to rule out any additional levy on cruising and has sought the support of the Minister for Trade, Tourism and Investment, Simon Birmingham.“The cruise sector already complies with all Australian and international biosecurity requirements at the highest level, and passengers already contribute to the cost of enforcement through measures like the Passenger Movement Charge,” Mr Katz said. “The costs for cruise lines operating in Australia are among the highest in the world, and any new charge will further disadvantage our industry at a time when it is facing significant infrastructure constraints and cost escalation.”last_img read more
