Yes or no?.” Burnham responded: “Of course.”He added:Parties talk in the House of Commons about government business, that’s what happens – all parties talk.Ed Miliband ruled out any sort of deal with the SNP last night during the leaders’ Question Time special. The audience pressed Miliband on what sort of arrangement Labour might make with the SNP to win the keys to number 10.The Labour leader said: “If it meant we weren’t going to be in government, not doing a coalition, not doing a deal, then so be it.”Nicola Sturgeon hit back saying she was “appalled” by Miliband’s decision to rule out an arrangement with the SNP in a bid to keep the Tories out of Downing Street.The Conservatives have been hammering away at what they see as the dangers of a Labour-SNP deal.With the polls still roughly neck and neck, convincing swing voters in marginal constituencies that a Miliband government propped up by the SNP could threaten the UK economy may prove a winning formula for the Tories.The SNP have stormed ahead in Scotland and if the polls are reflected on election day Labour face a wipeout in what was once their heartlands. [custom id=”1″] More From Our Partners White House Again Downplays Fourth Possible Coronvirus Checkvaluewalk.comPolice Capture Elusive Tiger Poacher After 20 Years of Pursuing the Huntergoodnewsnetwork.orgKiller drone ‘hunted down a human target’ without being told tonypost.comBrave 7-Year-old Boy Swims an Hour to Rescue His Dad and Little Sistergoodnewsnetwork.orgInstitutional Investors Turn To Options to Bet Against AMCvaluewalk.comNative American Tribe Gets Back Sacred Island Taken 160 Years Agogoodnewsnetwork.orgRussell Wilson, AOC among many voicing support for Naomi Osakacbsnews.comAstounding Fossil Discovery in California After Man Looks Closelygoodnewsnetwork.orgInside Ashton Kutcher and Mila Kunis’ not-so-average farmhouse estatenypost.comKamala Harris keeps list of reporters who don’t ‘understand’ her: reportnypost.com980-foot skyscraper sways in China, prompting panic and evacuationsnypost.comSupermodel Anne Vyalitsyna claims income drop, pushes for child supportnypost.comWhy people are finding dryer sheets in their mailboxesnypost.comMatt Gaetz swindled by ‘malicious actors’ in $155K boat sale boondogglenypost.comI blew off Adam Sandler 22 years ago — and it’s my biggest regretnypost.comFlorida woman allegedly crashes children’s birthday party, rapes teennypost.comUK teen died on school trip after teachers allegedly refused her pleasnypost.com‘Neighbor from hell’ faces new charges after scaring off home buyersnypost.comlast_img read more

We will then be having short presentations on restorative justice that will be facilitated by personnel from the Dispute Resolution Foundation (DRF),” Mrs. Sewell noted.The consultation is expected to commence at 5:00 p.m. and last for approximately three hours.According to the Director, Restorative Justice is a process of getting the community to take ownership of their issues and conflicts.She explained that if there is a breach or conflict and harm has been inflicted on a member of the community, restorative justice seeks to get the offender to take responsibility for his or her action, to express regret and to restore the victim as much as possible to his or her original state.Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Justice, Carol Palmer will chair the programme, while Chief Justice, Zaila McCalla will bring remarks.The series of consultations will continue in Montego Bay, St. James, on August 19, when it will be held at Sam Sharpe Teachers’ College, and on August 20, it will be held at the St. Johns Methodist Community Action Centre in Granville, St. James.

Royalties for rejuvenation: funding future for coal mining communities

Royalties for rejuvenation: funding future for coal mining communities The NSW Government has today launched a bold program to set aside a portion of coal mining royalties to ensure coal mining communities have a strong future for decades to come.Deputy Premier John Barilaro announced the new fund in Breeza today and said the new Royalties for Rejuvenation fund will see $25 million set aside each year to ensure coal mining communities have the support they need to develop other industries in the long-term.“Make no mistake, coal mining has a strong future in this state, but to ensure stability for the long haul we are setting aside funds so those coal mining communities, which produce such a valuable resource for our state, can plan what their future looks like,” Mr Barilaro said.“Today we are announcing a future fund, for future generations and future jobs, to ensure long-term prosperity in regional NSW.“The NSW Government’s Future of Coal Strategy is a roadmap for the coal industry in NSW, but we understand that mines have a lifespan, and we need to ensure coal mining communities keep quality high-paying jobs in their towns for the next generation and the generation after that.”NSW Treasurer Dominic Perrottet said the NSW Government recognises that the coal mining industry is the economic backbone of this state and in turn coal mining communities need certainty for their future.“Hundreds of millions of dollars will be invested in these communities over coming years to ensure jobs and investment in our vital regional areas,” Mr Perrottet said.“We want to ensure mining towns continue to have highly skilled well-paid jobs in growth industries that will lock in their economic security long into the future, so young people have the opportunity to remain in the town where they grew up.”This initiative follows the NSW Government’s introduction of the highly successful Resources for Regions program in 2012 which has seen $345 million invested in local mining communities. /Public Release.

Photo courtesy of PeaceHealth Southwest Medical CenterThe Starry, Starry Night Gala was attended by 450 guests and chaired by Terry Prill. Dan and Janis Wyatt and the Wyatt Family created a $250,000 matching gift opportunity for the evening, which was met. In addition, a $50,000 matching gift from the Firstenburg Foundation was also met.“We’re so grateful for this wonderful display of support for Jaime’s Fund. The generosity of our sponsors and so many individuals in support of this unique fund will provide special assistance to the most vulnerable among the thousands of cancer patients who receive care and treatment at PeaceHealth Southwest each year,” said Terry Prill.The Starry, Starry Night Gala was one part of PeaceHealth Southwest Foundation’s Giving Strength Cancer Campaign which is focused on several aspects of providing superior care for cancer patients in our region. In addition to Jaime’s Fund, the Foundation is also nearly halfway toward reaching its $3 million goal to renovate inpatient cancer facilities which are currently located in the original Mother Joseph building. This renovation will provide modern, spacious, private patient rooms having ample space for loved ones, as well as modern nursing and other caregiving and conference spaces necessary for the care of especially fragile cancer patients. The Jaime Wyatt Miller Cancer Compassion Fund is named in memory of Jaime Wyatt Miller who died in 2018 from breast cancer. Her family established the fund to honor her memory and dedication to helping others, creating a legacy and tribute to a local Vancouver woman who is deeply missed.Structured as an endowment, Jaime’s Fund will ensure in perpetuity that those PeaceHealth Southwest cancer patients undergoing treatment who are also dealing with additional stress and worry over basic necessities like food, clothing and transportation will get the assistance they need, so they can focus on their treatment and healing.Including the gala donations, the Foundation has now raised a total of $1,783,031 for Jaime’s Fund and much needed assistance is already being distributed to those cancer patients at PeaceHealth Southwest who are in need of strength.To learn more about the Giving Strength Cancer Campaign, visit www.peacehealth.org/givingstrength or contact Jennifer Wilkerson [email protected] (360) 514-3106.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Clark CountyLatestVancouvershare 0 Previous : Cross country: Siblings lead the way for Seton Catholic’s programs Next : Transportation heads the agenda at CREDC Fall LuncheonAdvertisementThis is placeholder text Name*Email*Website guestLabel 0 Comments Inline FeedbacksView all comments Name*Email*Websitecenter_img guestLabel I allow to create an accountWhen you login first time using a Social Login button, we collect your account public profile information shared by Social Login provider, based on your privacy settings.

Street maintenance and repair in Battle Ground ongoing

first_imgStreet maintenance and repair in Battle Ground ongoingPosted by ClarkCountyToday.comDate: Friday, September 4, 2020in: Newsshare 0 Proposed 2021 city budget reflects significant changesBATTLE GROUND — City of Battle Ground Public Works Director Mark Herceg recently presented the City Council with a proposed 2021 budget for the city’s Streets Fund.  The fund is used for the maintenance and preservation of streets, sidewalks, traffic signals, street lighting, and landscaping.  The budget proposal is being evaluated by the council as a component of the city’s overall 2021 Budget.The proposed Streets Fund budget reflects significant changes in both revenue and service levels.  In February of this year, voters approved a measure to annex into Fire District 3, eliminating the need for the city to contract for Fire/EMS services beginning in 2021.  The city made specific commitments to the community on how funds would be utilized if annexation was approved and the cost of the Fire/EMS contract eliminated. The proposed 2021 Streets Fund budget adds $1.2 million to the budget with $935,600 dedicated specifically to road maintenance and repair projects. Photo by Mike SchultzThe proposed 2021 Streets Fund budget adds $1.2 million to the budget with $935,600 dedicated specifically to road maintenance and repair projects. Photo by Mike SchultzImproved funding for road maintenance and repair was one of those commitments.  Specifically, the city promised to increase funding by $750,000 annually for “critically needed maintenance and preservation of roads throughout the city, with the focus on local neighborhood streets and collectors.  Several local roads need immediate maintenance, for example NW 29th Avenue that serves the Lewisville neighborhood and is in severe need, would be one of many priorities.”The proposed 2021 Streets Fund budget does just that and more, adding $1.2 million to the budget with $935,600 dedicated specifically to road maintenance and repair projects. “This is a huge boost to the city’s pavement preservation and repair program,” said Public Works Director Mark Herceg, “We propose utilizing these fund to make major improvements to neighborhood streets that are in severe decline; NW 29th Avenue in the Lewisville neighborhood is a good example and one of our priorities.  These roads take a much higher level of repair compared to the preservation work we’ve done the last several years.” The Public Works Department has utilized a much smaller Streets Fund budget over the last several years for preservation work such as crack and slurry sealing, road markings and striping.  Prior to the upcoming 2021 budget, annual revenue for street maintenance was limited to the amount received from city residents who pay a $20 TBD (Transportation Benefit District) fee when renewing vehicle tabs – about $290,000.Beginning in 2021, however, city residents will not pay the $20 Battle Ground TBD fee.  In November of 2019, statewide measure I-976, commonly referred to as the “$30 car tab initiative”, was approved by a majority of voters.  (Due to ongoing litigation, the Department of Licensing continues to collect vehicle fees;  view the DOL Fact Sheet here).   With a desire to honor the will of voters, the Battle Ground City Council has cut the Battle Ground TBD fee effective January 1, 2021.  The impact on the Streets Fund budget is the loss of the TBD revenue, approximately $290,000 each year.The Streets Fund budget is one of many departmental budgets being evaluated by the City Council prior to formal adoption of the city’s 2021 Budget in December.  City Council meetings and study sessions are always open to the public and the public is encouraged to participate by attending and contributing to the dialogue during public hearings.  The city has published a Guide to the 2021 Budget Process  that includes a calendar of upcoming meetings, information about the budget process, and a list of council priorities. The guide, designed to keep the community informed as the 2021 budget is developed, will be updated regularly as meetings and developments occur. Information provided by city of Battle Ground.AdvertisementThis is placeholder textTags:Battle GroundClark CountyLatestshare 0 Previous : OPINION: Reporter thanks athletes for fall sports rally Next : WATCH: Clark County TODAY LIVE • Friday, September 4, 2020AdvertisementThis is placeholder textlast_img read more

Southern Wine & Spirits is a $10-billion a year distribution company with 11,000 employees which service some 200,000 points of distribution spread across 35 states.

According to OU Kosher, the kosher market in the United States accounts for $150-billion in sales annually.“Our brand name is fresh and clever and the marketing and branding are totally relevant to today’s strategies, themes and approaches,” Mizraji explains. “There’s certainly a genuine strength and assurance in that both the producer and distributor are leaders in their respective fields and the packaging is notably graceful and attractive and most worthy of any Shabbat dinner table.”The L’CHAIM Kosher Wine series has been handcrafted and designed exclusively for L’CHAIM and comes from a vineyard with soil enriched and nurtured by basalt and terra rosa located within a strategic region with ideal climate conditions for the grapes. They are carefully harvested with only the finest quality of the low yielding crop selected to process and age to perfection, thereby achieving a perfect balance of flavor, color, aroma and taste. L’CHAIM Kosher wines are 9-percent Alcohol By Volume (ABV). The retail price for the 750 ML sizes is under $5.00.Mizraji enthusiastically notes that he sees a bright future on the horizon for the new L’CHAIM (To Life) Wine series, especially with the upcoming Jewish High Holidays in September.

Scientists uncover why knee joint injury leads to osteoarthritis

first_img By EH News Bureau on October 25, 2018 Share WHO tri-regional policy dialogue seeks solutions to challenges facing international mobility of health professionals Scientists uncover why knee joint injury leads to osteoarthritis News Read Article Heartfulness group of organisations launches ‘Healthcare by Heartfulness’ COVID care app The missing informal workers in India’s vaccine storycenter_img Related Posts MaxiVision Eye Hospitals launches “Mucormycosis Early Detection Centre” Phoenix Business Consulting invests in telehealth platform Healpha Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals releases first “Comprehensive Textbook of COVID-19” In advanced post-traumatic osteoarthritis, joint cartilage breaks down completely, causing severe joint pain, lack of mobility and even social isolationKnee joint injuries are typically related to sports, such as football, rugby or ice hockey, but people often do not know that such injuries may lead to joint inflammation and post-traumatic osteoarthritis.In advanced post-traumatic osteoarthritis, joint cartilage breaks down completely, causing severe joint pain, lack of mobility and even social isolation. However, the mechanisms leading to osteoarthritis are not known. Currently, it is not possible for a physician examining a patient to predict future joint condition and possible development of osteoarthritis.In the future, however, this may be possible, as a new study from the University of Eastern Finland and Massachusetts Institute of Technology now shows that articular cartilage degenerates specifically around injury areas when the fluid flow velocity becomes excessive. The findings were reported in Scientific Reports.The study presents a new mechanobiological model for cartilage degeneration by implementing tissue deformation and fluid flow as mechanisms for cartilage breakdown when a normal dynamic loading, such as walking, is applied to the joint. The results were compared to experimentally observed degradation of articular cartilage. Ultimately, the new model could be used to predict osteoarthritis in personal medicine, to suggest optimal rehabilitation protocols, and to improve the quality of life.The researchers found that different mechanisms, such as fluid flow and tissue deformation, can cause cartilage degradation after a knee injury. The results obtained using the novel algorithm agreed well with the experimentally observed proteoglycan content and cell death in cartilage samples.Gustavo A. Orozco from the University of Eastern Finland explains,“Our findings indicate that after an injury in the knee and subsequent tissue loading, osteoarthritis is caused by easy leakage of proteoglycans through the injury surface by high fluid outflow.”The findings are significant, and could open up new avenues for the model to be employed in the prediction of subject-specific progression of post-traumatic osteoarthritis, and in the evaluation of the effect of clinical interventions in the future.Specifically, the model could identify high and low-risk lesions in the cartilage for osteoarthritis development and suggest an optimal and individual rehabilitation protocol.
