Share 11 Views no discussions Share A small amount of absolute alcohol was injected to produce a small controlled heart attackUK doctors have saved a man’s life using an unconventional treatment – a shot of neat alcohol into the arteries supplying his heart. Ronald Aldom, 77, from Portishead near Bristol, had an unusual heart rhythm called ventricular tachychardia that can be fatal if left unchecked. Medics had tried to treat it using standard methods but with no success. They resorted to using pure ethanol to trigger a controlled heart attack and kill off some of his heart muscle. Ethanol ablationThe procedure involved passing a catheter into a blood vessel in the groin and guiding it up towards the heart. Once the catheter identifies which part of the heart the dangerous rhythms are coming from, the ethanol dose can be delivered. This kills the area of the heart muscle causing the problem allowing the heart’s rhythm to return to normal.This rare treatment has only been conducted a handful of times in the UK. Cardiologist Dr Tom Johnson, who carried out the procedure at the Bristol Heart Institute, said Mr Aldom was now “much better”. “He wasn’t going to leave hospital unless something was done. There was no other option.”Mr Aldom, who is now out of hospital, said: “I think it’s wonderful that the doctors tried everything to help me. “If they hadn’t have done this I wouldn’t be here now.”BBC News

Final thoughts, the drive will hit you in the wallet, but it will save you time if you’re constantly transferring large files. You’ll need to get creative if you only use devices with Thunderbolt 3 connections, and you need the high transfer rate. We’re also only talking 1 TB of storage, which won’t last too long. All that said, there isn’t a faster, tougher option on the market, and I think this would make a great drive middle-man drive for a DIT, based on the speed alone. I’m sure we’ll see some updates in future releases, so I look forward to watching the line develop.Looking for more on film and video production gear?

In my opinion, the 2800 MB/s transfer rate is mind-blowing. Transferring files to this drive will take no time; the limiting factor would be the speed of your computer. If the grip-friendly casing I mentioned above wasn’t enough, the internal casing (with three-meter drop resistance) is an added plus. We all stop paying attention from time to time and get clumsy, but hard drives, especially mechanical ones, do not . . . like being dropped. While SSDs are less prone to breaking, causing data loss, the Mobile Pro SSD is crush-proof up to 1000 lbs. Sure, maybe this is overkill, but what if there’s a grand piano around and . . .You get the idea.So, overall, the G-Drive Mobile Pro SSD is great. The product page tells a user can edit 8k footage at full frame rate off the drive, and it can also transfer a terabyte of media in under seven minutes.During a night shoot on location, I wanted to see what this thing was made of, so I transferred some photos and 4K video just to test the speed and reliability of it. I was not disappointed. The read time was almost instant, and transferring media was just as fast. To put it in perspective, getting my laptop and drive from my bag took longer than the transfer.And the cons . . .It’s pricey. At $699 price point, this drive isn’t an impulse buy for most of us. The biggest issue I had was using this drive with anything that didn’t have a Thunderbolt 3 connection. Looking online for yet another dongle, it was hard to find a simple solution. The writing speed is incredible, and so is the durability, so I would’ve love a bit more than 1TB in storage. Obviously, the drive’s build looks and feels solid — all while staying relatively lightweight at only .45 lbs. It has has a silicon, rubbery casing that keeps it from slipping out of your hand on set or in the field. This is smart design because the drive is only four by three inches — it takes up little to no space in your bag — meaning it could see the floor in a hurry during a busy shoot. There are heatsink vents on both sides of the drive, cut into a protective aluminum casing. This thing looks aggressive and clean.The single Thunderbolt 3 cable is both tough and rugged — and flexible if you find yourself working in tight spaces. Why am I stopping to review a cable? Because in the past, I have had many drives unexpectedly eject because the cable was too stiff. Experimenting with this setup, I had no such problems.Yes, it looks and feels great, but does it work? Of course, this drive is a monster; its speed and responsiveness are incredible. Here are some of the specs:1 Thunderbolt 3 portMac OS/Windows compatibility2800 MB/s transfer rateProtective aluminum internal casing3-meter drop protection1000-lb crush-proof500 GB — 1 TB optionsPrice: $699 Extra space for photos and videos is always a plus — so is accessing them in a hurry. We took a look at the G-Drive Mobile Pro SSD to see how it stacks up.So we recently got our hands on the G-Drive Mobile Pro SSD from G-Technology, and, right to the point, this drive is a beast. G-Technology is known for their reliable, high-quality products, and this drive is no exception — but it has quirks. Here’s what we found out.

Nominations open yesterday for the Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity, an annual international humanitarian award.The Aurora Prize is seeking personal stories of individuals who have put themselves at personal risk for the sake of others. Nominations are open to the public from now until September 9, 2016 at www.auroraprize.com.Anyone can nominate a candidate they believe has overcome great personal challenges to make an exceptional impact on preserving human life and advancing humanitarian causes. A description of the Prize criteria and selection process can be found here.Every year, an Aurora Prize Laureate is honored with a US$100,000 grant, as well as a US$1,000,000 award to be donated to charitable organizations that inspired their work.“The Aurora Prize highlights those risking their lives for the less fortunate to combat some of the world’s gravest humanitarian crises,” said Elie Wiesel, Aurora Prize Co-Chair.The first-ever Aurora Prize Laureate, Marguerite Barankitse of Maison Shalom, was honored in April for saving and caring for 30,000 children, orphans and refugees during Burundi’s civil war.“This Aurora Prize was consolation to me for the whole of Burundi’s people,” said Barankitse. “Success is not what you have, but who you are. My mission is to give everyone hope—hope for success, for compassion, and for love. I’m so grateful for the opportunity the Aurora Prize has afforded me, the three organizations I nominated for the award, and the people of Burundi.”Barankitse is one of many remarkable stories. She and her fellow 2016 Aurora Prize finalists — Dr. Tom Catena from Mother of Mercy Hospital in the Nuba Mountains of Sudan; Syeda Ghulam Fatima, the General Secretary of the Bonded Labor Liberation Front in Pakistan; and Father Bernard Kinvi, a Catholic priest in Bossemptele in the Central African Republic — are just a handful of the extraordinary individuals making a difference around the world.“We are honored to recognize Ms. Barankitse’s devotion to the kind of impactful work that saves lives and leaves behind a lasting legacy of good. Ms. Barankitse embodies not only the best of the Aurora Prize, but the very best of humanity,” added Co-Chair George Clooney. “We look forward to continuing the search for more well-deserving heroes this year.”The Aurora Prize is the philanthropic vision of co-founders Vartan Gregorian, Noubar Afeyan and Ruben Vardanyan, who sought to express gratitude and memorialize those whose heroic actions saved lives during the Armenian Genocide more than one hundred years ago. Continuing the cycle of giving, the Aurora Prize carries forward that legacy of gratitude.“Last year’s call for nominations helped to shine a light on a number of remarkable humanitarian heroes,” said Co-Founder and Selection Committee Member Vartan Gregorian. “We’re thrilled to again open the call for nominations, during which we hope to unearth even more inspiring stories of selflessness and hope.”The second annual Aurora Prize will be presented on April 24, 2017, in Yerevan, Armenia.
TORONTO – Men and women are each making comparable contributions to the family finances in nearly one-third of all couples, Statistics Canada said Wednesday as the latest data from the 2016 census revealed new details about how — and which — Canadians are paying the bills.Of the 8.2 million married or common-law couples in the country last year, 96 per cent of them saw both members earn at least some income in 2015, the most recent year for which data was available, the agency reported.And in 32 per cent of cases, both incomes were “fairly equal,” or within 40 to 60 per cent of each other — a marked improvement over 1985, when only 20.6 per cent of couples were each making comparable salaries.“Many factors have contributed to this advance, led by the increased labour force participation of women,” Statistics Canada said in a brief on the new data. “Combined with a narrowing of the gender wage gap, women now contribute a larger portion of the couple’s combined income.”Men, however, continue to earn an appreciably higher income in fully half of all opposite-sex couples, while women earned the larger share in just 17.3 per cent of cases — a glaring difference, although significantly better than in 1985, when nearly three-quarters of the men made more, compared with just eight per cent of the women.The gender gap persists in same-sex couples, too: male couples earned a median income of $100,707 in 2015, compared with $92,857 for female couples.As she embarks on a career in law, a profession long dominated by men, Jennifer Chan said she expects to work longer than many of her male colleagues, citing student debt, the gender wage gap and potential family obligations, if she decides to have children.Two years after graduating, much of Chan’s Legal Aid salary goes towards paying down her student loans instead of building savings. She’s proud to say she’s knocked $30,000 off her outstanding balance “on a completely average salary.”Chan, 27, said she could have pursued a higher-paying corporate job, but at the expense of career satisfaction and work-life balance. Still, the decision will affect her financial goals, she admitted.“I work at Legal Aid; it’s not like I’m going to make millions of dollars here,” she said, describing the double whammy of lower pay and heavier debt load that can hit new female graduates especially hard.It will likely mean holding off on buying a home right away – the Toronto housing market is especially expensive, she conceded – as well as putting on hold her plans to max out her RRSP and tax-free savings account.“It’s prolonging some of the other financial goals that I have … but ultimately it was a choice that I made.”Women in the workforce, especially in professions long dominated by men, will likely earn less over their career and work later in life to achieve a comparable level of pension and retirement savings, said Nora Spinks of the Ottawa-based Vanier Institute of the Family.Women, Spinks said, tend to be slightly younger than their male partners, are paid less and often choose to leave temporarily in order to have and raise children. Those who get divorced later in life often suffer an especially heavy financial blow.“The women who are now in their 60s were part of the cohort that lost time in pension-building when their kids were little, because they often had a year or two without benefits and the like,” said Spinks, noting women simply have to work longer to support themselves.What’s more, she added, women aren’t guaranteed more security or spending power just because they’re generating more income.“Those women who are in the paid labour force and maybe earning, finally, $100,000 — are they supporting their mothers in another household? Are they sending money back to the Philippines? Are they providing funds for their grandchildren’s childcare? Have they just given their kids a massive down payment for their own Toronto home?”As more women join the workforce, census data released earlier this year showed a comparable increase in the number of men choosing to be stay-at-home dads — evidence of shifting societal norms, Spinks added.She cited outdated Hollywood stereotypes in movies like “Three Men and a Baby” and “Mr. Mom,” which “showed men as incompetent. Incapable. Klutzes. Not any more.”“The image of the stay-at-home dad is no longer one of failure or an idiot, but rather one really dedicated to family and being there for his family.”There’s a wrinkle, however: any growth in men swapping roles with women likely has more to do with the last major economic downturn and a loss of manufacturing jobs than with any great strides forward in pay equity or gender parity.“It’s not that she’s gone up significantly,” she said. “It’s that he’s gone down.”Making sure women have supports at home to pursue career goals is also key.Family doctor Ritika Goel, also a new mom, said she’s hyper-aware of how often family obligations and work obligations clash for women.Goel, 33, works in a community health centre that supported her desire to take a year of maternity leave, but has several physician friends in male-dominated specialty fields that actively discourage taking time off.“I chose to take a year off and I’m happy I did that for my life and my bonding with my child,” she said. “At the same time, those are things that impact your career prospects.”
Ahmedabad: Congress chief Rahul Gandhi Tuesday attacked Prime Minister Narendra Modi over his 2014 promise of “depositing” Rs 15 lakh in the account of every citizen. He was speaking at a rally in Adalaj village of Gandhinagar district, held after the Congress Working Committee meeting. Gandhi also played to the gallery in the business- driven state by claiming that “Gabbar Singh Tax”, his oft- repeated jibe for the Goods and Services Tax (GST) was beyond the understanding of traders. Also Read – Squadrons which participated in Balakot air strike awarded citations on IAF Day “Gabbar Singh Tax (GST) can’t be understood by our traders even today (after its was implemented nationwide last year),” he said. “Did people get Rs 15 lakh into their bank accounts as promised by Narendra Modi?” he asked at the well-attended rally. Turning his attention on the Pulwama terror attack and the subsequent air strike by India and the aerial engagement with Pakistan Air Force the next day, Gandhi said it was National Security Adviser Ajit Doval who has sent Jaish-e- Mohammed chief Massod Azhar to freedom in a “special plane”. Also Read – SC declines Oil Min request to stay sharing of documents on Reliance penalty “Who sent Pulwama terror attack perpetrator Masood Azhar to Pakistan?” he asked the crowd. “Masood Azhar was sent in a special aircraft and NSA Ajit Doval accompanied him,” Gandhi answered his query for the crowd. The Congress leader, however, did not reveal if he had any proof to substantiate his claim that Doval accompanied Azhar on a special flight. In the next month’s Lok Sabha polls, truth will win and hatred will be defeated, Gandhi said.
New Delhi: The Delhi BJP has started a campaign where the party’s volunteers are interacting with college students and telling them about various initiatives initiated by the Narendra Modi government aimed towards the youth, a move aimed at reaching out to the first-time voters ahead of the Lok Sabha polls. The campaign — ‘Youth4Modi’ — being run by Delhi BJP vice president Jai Prakash will be covering colleges, tuition centres and other places frequented by the youth.

He also claimed that their volunteers have found a lot of curiosity among the first-time voters about the Balakot air strikes and are curious to know about the operation. Till now, the campaign has covered colleges like Kirori Mal, Shri Ram College Of Commerce, Hansraj College and Ramjas College. The volunteers will soon be visiting Maharaja Agrasen College as part of the campaign. The campaign was also carried out at the Vishwavidyalaya Metro station recently where Union Minister Vijay Goel addressed the young voters.
The guest list for the Ohio State’s 2002 national championship team reunion consists of three or four names, but it won’t stay that short for long.The defensive captain of the 2002 Buckeyes, which secured its place in OSU football lore with a 31-24, double overtime win against Miami (Fla.) in the 2003 Fiesta Bowl, isn’t ruling out appearances from former OSU coach Jim Tressel or tailback Maurice Clarett.OSU’s 2002 national championship squad will reconvene at Ohio Stadium for the Buckeyes’ Nov. 24 game against Michigan where they it will be recognized by the university and conduct other celebratory activities on its own.Former OSU safety Mike Doss, the defensive MVP of the 2002 national championship game, told The Lantern Thursday that he has been planning the event on behalf of the entire team. Former quarterback Craig Krenzel, safety Donnie Nickey and cornerback Dustin Fox have been “in constant communication to make everything go.”Doss told The Lantern that he, Krenzel, Nickey and Fox might be the only four players committed to the event for now, but more members of the 2002 team are expected to join in the festivities.Tressel could be among the attendees too, Doss said.“I don’t think it would be an issue with coach Tressel coming back and reuniting with his players of the past knowing that he was our coach,” Doss said. “Knowing what kind of impact he had on us. What kind of impact we had on him and his career, I don’t think that would feel uncomfortable for him at all because we love coach Tressel, we support him as OSU supports each and every one of us.“Right now you’ve got three or four guys … Just the little bit of hints that we’ve reached out, that I think everyone would be committed and involved as much as they can.”OSU athletic director Gene Smith shared similar sentiments during a radio interview on WBNS-FM 97.1 about a possible return to Ohio Stadium for Tressel, saying it wouldn’t be awkward at all if Tressel came back.Tressel was forced to resign as OSU coach May 30 after it was discovered he was aware of players violations that occurred during the 2010 season, failed to report the violations and fielded ineligible players during the 2010 season, which was later vacated.Tressel did not immediately respond to The Lantern‘s Thursday request for comment.Doss said he and his three teammates planning the event wouldn’t accept a celebration of their national championship that didn’t include Tressel, as well as Clarett.Clarett ran for 1,237 yards and 16 touchdowns during the Buckeyes’ championship run. After the season, Clarett sued the NFL in an attempt to declare for the 2004 NFL Draft.Later, Clarett pleaded guilty to aggravated assault with a concealed weapon and served three-and-a-half years in a Toledo prison.Doss said Tressel and Clarett’s transgressions are separate issues from the on-field accomplishments of the 2002 championship team.“Coach Tressel was a part of that team. He was the nucleus,” Doss said. “Maurice Clarrett – one of the best tailbacks to play at Ohio State for one season and a career. You know, he was a phenomenal player for us that year. We would not accept anything presented to the university if both of those guys weren’t included.“We all communicated to ourselves that anything that was going to be organized has to include each and every one that was involved. Period. If that was going to be an issue then we would have respectfully declined. But the university embraced coach Tressel and Maurice.”Clarett did not immediately respond to The Lantern‘s Thursday request for comment but indicated he would attend the reunion on Twitter.From his account, @ReeseClarett13, Clarett said, “indeed my friend….,” in response to a question regarding whether he would attend the event.Clarett said in a later tweet: “me and Tress have been cool since before I went to prison. A lot of ppl don’t know that. I couldn’t do it (without) him.”Doss said the timing for a reunion is right for several reasons, but most of all because the 2002 championship is the university’s only one in the last 10 years, as well as for nearly 40 years prior to that.Aside from university recognition, Doss said he, Krenzel, Nickey and Fox are working on preparing a dinner reception and a tailgate prior to the noon kickoff against the Wolverines.There is also interest in returning to show support for the current team, as well as first-year coach Urban Meyer and his staff, Doss said.The Buckeyes’ opponent that day was a factor too.“It’s coach Meyer’s first Michigan game,” Doss said. “It’ll be an opportunity for a lot of support to be there for the coaching staff and it’s Michigan – that’s all you have to say.”
Max Meyer’s Schalke career appears to be finished after he was banned from attending training sessions with the first-team for the rest of the seasonThe German midfielder previously announced that he will be leaving the Bundesliga side at the end of the season as a free agent and had publicly criticised Schalke sporting director Christian Heidel for the way he handled the contract negotiations with him.“I simply did not want to stay with Schalke and work under Heidel. It’s all about this. Lately, it just feels like bullying to me.” said Meyer, according to Sky Sports.Following that interview with the German publication Bild, Schalke has since banned Meyer from attending any further first-team training sessions.“We can’t tolerate such statements and such behaviour,” said Heidel.Merson believes Arsenal should sign Sancho Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho might be the perfect player to play for the Gunners, according to former England international Paul Merson.“We are upset more by his accusations of bullying, which we strongly deny, than his untrue allegations. Schalke 04 have always behaved correctly to Max Meyer.”The 22-year-old has featured regularly for Schalke this season and has largely played the role of a holding midfielder this season.After leaving a training session on Wednesday with a foot injury, Meyer has since not appeared at the club and refused an MRI examination.“My impression for a long time was that Max felt at home here. That’s what he expressed to the coaching staff,” explained Schalke head coach Domenico Tedesco.“I’m disappointed at his personal attacks and can’t fully understand them as they simply don’t add up.”
