Ode to politics of consensus

Posted On Oct 18 2019 by

first_imgSheila Dikshit, Delhi’s three-time Chief Minister who passed away on July 21, must be remembered for her politics of consensus and negotiated settlement. This is even more important in today’s age of highly polarised politics. It is also important if we consider that the objective of a government is to ensure delivery of development. And this is not possible without the ability to manage the contested realities and to seek a collaborative solution. For me, this is the real art of politics. Unfortunately, we seem to be losing this art as hate and loud noise takes over the airwaves and our world. Also Read – A special kind of bondMy encounter with Sheilaji (as she was known) began with a fight. In the late 1990s, we were in the Supreme Court, arguing that Delhi’s public transport must switch over to cleaner compressed natural gas (CNG) fuel to combat its then deadly air pollution. This had become adversarial and contentious. The Union government was dead against it; the diesel lobby was arguing that CNG was explosive and untested. The Delhi government — then headed by Sheilaji — was dragging its feet to make the transition. Queues at petrol pumps were getting longer and longer as CNG was not being delivered; buses were being burnt to show how CNG wouldn’t work. In the Supreme Court, the then Solicitor General of India Harish Salve was hauling up the government for its deliberate inaction. The top court was getting more and more incensed and called for contempt proceedings to start against the Delhi Chief Minister. Also Read – Insider threat managementThen all this changed. Sheilaji walked into the court personally. She didn’t stand on ceremony; she didn’t join the acrimony. She just ensured that orders were to be followed. As they say, the rest is history. We worked closely with her government through this period of transition to CNG. She didn’t blink when the going was tough. She had the ability to make her bureaucrats deliver, not as sovereigns, but by including words and ideas from the “outside”. She joined worlds effortlessly and with grace. This is another art in politics we are losing. In the decade of 2000 attention shifted to public transport to reduce vehicles on the road, and so pollution. I distinctly remember that she came to one of our meetings where we discussed the second-generation reforms after transition to CNG. She didn’t hesitate to chide us. She disagreed that the city could move towards public transport at the scale needed. She didn’t think this was the way ahead. But she didn’t shut the door on us. We persisted and she listened. I believe it is we who failed her. Not the other way around. When she supported the now-dismantled Bus Rapid Transit System (BRT), it was because she gave chance to seemingly impossible ideas. It is our collective inability to design a system for the complexity of Delhi, which would negotiate with the different road users and not antagonise needlessly, that made the system fail. But she again did not give up on the ideas. She dismantled the notorious Blue Line bus service, even though it was owned by many of her compatriots. She supported the purchase of a new generation of low-floor and air-conditioned buses — all new and all untested. She understood the need for massive investment in public transport — metro, bus, and cycle — to reinvent mobility. Again, it was her governance abilities combined with persuasive powers, without angst and without finger-pointing that brought these changes. I am writing this not to call out to the current leaders of my city or country. But to reminisce so that we can, perhaps for one moment, think of how politics of consensus will deliver. I know she lost the popular vote in 2013; I know that air pollution and many other problems of this ungovernable city with multiplicity of authorities, grew in her tenure. But the fact is that she never stopped trying. She never shunned responsibility. She mastered that elusive art of pushing for change without fuss. One of the last times I met her was when she called to ask what she could do about the growing pollution in the city. She had lost the election a few years ago. But she was concerned, even agitated. She wanted to know what more governments could do; what advice could she give. I told her frankly that she should not try. She would be attacked for not doing enough in her tenure. The blame-game machinery would go on over-drive. But she wrote to governments with her advice. I know, because she called to tell me, with some bemusement that she did not get any responses. What could I say? The courtesy of a response was old-fashioned; her fashion. It would be really unfortunate if we let the Sheila Dikshit way of politics go out of fashion.(The author is Director General of Centre for Science and Environment and the Editor of Down To Earth magazine.

Ranil accuses media of telling lies and misleading public

Posted On Oct 8 2019 by

Prime Minister Ranil Wickremesinghe today accused the media of telling lies and attempting to mislead the public on moves to draft a new Constitution.The Prime Minister said that several newspapers had today carried a news item with an image of the Chief Prelate of the Malwattu chapter, the most venerable Thibbatuwawe Sri Siddhartha Sumangala Thero, saying the Malwathu and Asgiri Chapters had opposed drafting a new Constitution. Wickremesinghe said that he had spoken to the Chief Prelate of the Malwattu chapter and found that he was not in the country and did not attend any talks related to the Constitution while the Chief Prelate of the Asgiri Chapter had also not attended the meeting. Members of the council said that they feel the new Constitution is detrimental as it looks at devolution of powers.However the Prime Minister claims the media had misreported matters related to the meeting by the monks. The Prime Minister questioned if the media do not want the Government to implement the mandate given by the people.He wanted the journalists to telephone their Editors in front of him and ask them why they published misleading stories.The Prime Minister then ended the press conference as the journalists remained silent. (Colombo Gazette) The Joint Sangha Council of the Malwathu and Asgiri Chapters of the Siam Sect reached this decision following a meeting held in Kandy yesterday. read more

Raptors face many conundrums if Siakam sits out Game 4

Posted On Oct 2 2019 by

As the Toronto Raptors have spent their playoffs struggling to supplement the otherworldly play of Kawhi Leonard, the one guy they could rely on was Pascal Siakam.He’s leading the team in minutes played this post-season. His 22.9 points per game are second only to Leonard, and just shy of double Kyle Lowry’s 11.6, which rank third. On a Raptors team starved for size and struggling against the length of the Philadelphia 76ers — who have opened up a 2-1 lead in their Eastern Conference semi-final — Siakam leads Toronto in rebounding, is second in blocks, and has scored more points in the paint than anyone. He’s been indispensable.So, about that. Twelve minutes after noon on Saturday, the Raptors sent sharp pangs of anxiety through an already distressed fan base when they announced Siakam is doubtful for Sunday’s critical game 4 against the Sixers with a right calf contusion. Minutes later, Siakam arrived for practice with his team at Wells Fargo Center, took a seat on the baseline, and didn’t do much to mitigate concern, saying not even he’s sure if he’ll be able to play or not.“We haven’t really done much until now. So I’m probably going to see what I do today and kind of play it by ear,” he said. “It’s sore. It’s really sore.”Siakam says he doesn’t know exactly when the injury occurred, only that he didn’t notice how bad it was until his adrenaline wore off following Thursday’s game. He’s spent the time since resting and receiving treatment, and says the soreness has subsided with each passing day. He was hoping to try a bit of running during Saturday’s practice to gauge his recovery. But the true test will be how he feels Sunday ahead of his team’s 3:30 p.m. ET tip-off.Now, it is certainly worth mentioning that during the fourth quarter of Thursday’s game, in a momentary and uncommon loss of composure, Siakam used his right leg to trip Joel Embiid after being stuffed at the rim. Embiid weighs nearly 300-lbs., and he appears to drive his left knee directly into Siakam’s right calf on the play before toppling forwards. That could certainly cause a contusion.But it’s also worth mentioning that Siakam continued playing following that event, and actually came up on the wrong end of an even more vicious collision with Embiid moments later, when the Sixers centre blocked another attempt, this time sending the Raptors forward crashing to the floor as if he’d been volleyed from a cannon. That could also cause a contusion.As Siakam said Saturday, there was no shortage of contact in Thursday’s game — “I was on the floor at lot,” he pointed out, accurately — particularly in the paint where Siakam spends much of his time. And Zapruder’ing game film in an effort to determine exactly when Siakam was contused doesn’t accomplish much. All that matters is that Siakam’s now injured, and his status for Sunday’s Game 4 is in doubt.He’ll certainly do everything he can to suit up, and the fact he’s missed only three games over the last two seasons — including a pair of playoff runs — speaks to Siakam’s willingness to play through bumps and bruises. Considering his style of play, you can be certain he’s taken the floor on many occasions that he doesn’t feel his best.And with that in mind, maybe Toronto’s listing of Siakam as doubtful is merely a bit of gamesmanship meant to give Philadelphia something else to think about. The injury would have to be awfully serious, and awfully limiting, for Siakam to sit out a game this important. And Raptors head coach Nick Nurse said Saturday, “I don’t think there’s anything seriously wrong, structurally, that’s ruling him out 100 per cent,” which leaves plenty of room for Siakam to be taking the floor as usual Sunday afternoon. But what happens if he can’t?“It’s just a next man up thing, if that’s what it turns out to be,” Nurse said. “It’s just like every other time somebody’s been out this year. Whether it’s Kawhi, Kyle, whoever. You just have to plug in with what we’ve got.”If Nurse needs a replacement in his starting lineup, Fred VanVleet is likely the leading candidate. The Raptors’ unofficial sixth man drew 28 starts this season, often when the Raptors were without one of Lowry or Leonard, as they often were. Of course, subbing in for a forward like Siakam is a different proposition. But with OG Anunoby still unavailable following an appendectomy, the Raptors don’t have a natural replacement.“We’ve done that a lot with Fred and we’ve really enjoyed great pace and ball movement, et cetera,” Nurse said. “That may be something to spark us a little bit.”Norman Powell and Serge Ibaka are Nurse’s other primary options. They’d bring more size than VanVleet, which carries extra weight in this series considering how much Philadelphia’s length has bothered the Raptors.Powell’s no stranger to impromptu and impactful playoff performances. Two years ago, after not even seeing the floor in the opening game of Toronto’s first-round series with the Milwaukee Bucks, Powell drew into the starting lineup for Game 4 with the Raptors down 2-1. He was plus-15 during an inspired Raptors victory that night, earning another start in Game 5 when he scored 25 and was plus-23 in 34 minutes. He remained in the starting lineup for Game 6 as the Raptors completed the series comeback.Ibaka, meanwhile, would be the most natural Siakam replacement from a pure size standpoint. But that would mean sharing the floor with starting centre Marc Gasol, which hasn’t always been a seamless fit in their limited time playing together.The Raptors did manage a 6.4 net rating over the 31 minutes spread across 15 games that Gasol and Ibaka shared the floor during the regular season. That number was powered mostly by a very strong 85.1 defensive rating, however, as the Raptors played to only a 91.4 offensive rating over those minutes. That confirms the eye test which suggests that while Gasol and Ibaka’s length can create problems for an opposition’s ability to score, it isn’t a cohesive fit for the Raptors on the offensive end.And if Toronto has had one issue in these playoffs, it’s been scoring. The Raptors defence was its biggest strength up until Thursday’s blowout, a game in which Toronto didn’t do anything it wanted to. In the six games prior to that, the Raptors held their opponents to a defensive rating of 99 or lower. So far, that’s been the trend, with Thursday’s game the outlier. So, Nurse may prefer to prioritize offensive fluidity when deciding who to start.Patrick McCaw is the final, dark horse candidate to fill a Siakam absence. He drew into the starting lineup once this season on a Leonard load management night this March, and has been used sparing during the playoffs. From a rotation standpoint, starting McCaw would allow Nurse to keep VanVleet, Powell, and Ibaka in the roles and lineups they’ve become familiar with over Toronto’s first eight post-season games. But those three haven’t been enjoying much success, anyway, so a change to their usage might not be the worst thing.While McCaw brings plenty of fast-twitch defensive energy, he’s been a hesitant shooter to this point with the Raptors, and would be at a size disadvantage against the Sixers’ big starters. Of course, that’s the case for essentially all of Nurse’s options outside of Ibaka.“None of its ideal matchup-wise,” Nurse said. “But those are the guys that have been playing.”Depth guard Jeremy Lin and forward Eric Moreland have only seen floor time in blowouts, which removes them from the conversation. And while veteran shooter Jodie Meeks has logged limited minutes in every playoff game for the Raptors thus far, thrusting him into a starting role would be a lot to ask. But one of those three could see their bench role expanded Sunday, as Nurse mentioned that if Siakam isn’t unavailable he’d likely “introduce somebody else into the series that hasn’t played yet.”But the biggest impact in all of this will be what the Raptors would lose if Siakam can’t play. The rest of the Raptors roster outside of Leonard has been struggling to produce as is, from Lowry and Gasol’s lack of scoring, to the second unit’s continued failure to arrive in this series. Through it all, the Raptors have been able to rely on Siakam to pick them up. Sunday, that option may not be available.“Those guys, they’re unbelievable. They’ve carried us a lot this year. Honestly, they’ve done a lot for us,” Lowry said of Leonard and Siakam. “As other players around those guys, we need to step up in general. Make some shots, be more aggressive, draw some more fouls, try to do some more things to help relieve a little bit of the scoring burden off of them.“It’s next guy up. We’ve got to step up. I’ve got to step up even more. I’ve got to step up way more than I have. And that will be the challenge for us — everyone stepping up.” read more

Cyberattacks disrupt internet services

Posted On Sep 19 2019 by

first_imgWithering cyberattacks on server farms of a key internet firm repeatedly disrupted access to major websites and online services including Twitter, Netflix and PayPal across the United States on Friday. The White House called the disruption malicious and a hacker group claimed responsibility, though its assertion couldn’t be verified.Manchester, N.H.-based Dyn Inc. said its data centers were hit by three waves of distributed denial-of-service attacks, which overwhelm targeted machines with junk data traffic. The attacks, shifting geographically, had knock-on effects for users trying to access popular websites across the U.S. even in Europe.“The complexity of the attacks is what is making it so difficult for us,” said Kyle York, the company’s chief strategy officer. “What they are actually doing is moving around the world with each attack.” He said an East Coast data center was hit first; attacks on an offshore target followed later.The data flood came from tens of millions of different Internet-connected machines — including increasingly popular but highly insecure household devices such as web-connected cameras. It was an onslaught whose global shifts suggested a sophisticated attacker, though Dyn said it had neither suspect nor motive.Broad effectsThe level of disruption was difficult to gauge, but Dyn serves some of the biggest names on the web, providing the domain name services that translate the numerical internet addresses into human-readable destinations such as “twitter.com.”last_img read more

first_img February 28, 2014 — Severe skin reactions during radiation therapy could be prevented by applying a thin transparent silicone dressing to the skin from the first day of treatment, clinical research from New Zealand shows.Although many skincare products have been tested in clinical trials over the years, until now none have been able to completely prevent severe skin reactions, said senior lecturer Patries Herst of University of Otago Wellington’s department of radiation therapy.Herst and her team of radiation therapists, oncology nurses and medical physicists have completed five randomized controlled clinical trials in public hospitals in Dunedin, Wellington, Palmerston North and Auckland Radiation Oncology over the past five years, all focusing on side effects caused by radiation therapy.Their most recent trial was in collaboration with Dunedin Hospital, and demonstrated it is possible to prevent skin reactions from developing in breast cancer patients undergoing radiation therapy.Skin reactions are common in these patients, ranging from mild redness to ulceration with symptoms of pain, burning and itchiness, Herst said.The dressings work by adhering closely to the small folds in the skin without the use of adhesives, so do not stick to open wounds. By protecting the radiation-damaged skin from friction against items of clothing or other parts of the body, they allow the stem cells of the skin to heal from the radiation damage in an undisturbed environment. The dressings are also free of chemicals that could react with the skin.Herst is currently setting up a trial that will test the dressings in head and neck cancer patients.The results have been published online in Radiotherapy and Oncology.For more information: www.journals.elsevier.com/radiotherapy-and-oncology FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more News | Pediatric Imaging | August 14, 2019 Ultrasound Guidance Improves First-attempt Success in IV Access in Children August 14, 2019 – Children’s veins read more Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.

comes to Alzheimer’s research he’s not kidding around Rogen’s mother-in-law was diagnosed with early-onset Alzheimer’s not long after he started dating his now-wife Lauren Miller He’s become a public face of advocacy for awareness about Alzheimer’s even testifying before the Senate Committee on Appropriates last year in a bid to get more funding for research The couple also work to raise money with their movement Hilarity for Charity which has an event this weekend at the University of Vermont to congratulate students there for raising the most money of any college for the second year in a row Their prize is a live narration of the Superbad soundtrack by Rogen and “McLovin” actor Christopher Mintz-Plass We caught up with Rogen and Miller before the event TIME: Whats the concept behind Hilarity for Charity Miller: My mom was diagnosed at 55 years old with early onset Alzheimers My grandfather had had it and my grandmother So its something thats always been part of my life and affected me at an age when I was very young After we formed Hilarity for Charity we had all these young people reaching out to us who wanted a way to use their voices and take action so we came up with this idea as sort of a charity-in-a-box program: wed make it really simple for college studentsfraternities sororities groups of friends whateverto throw these events and wed give them everything they need Rogen: Yep and we thought as much as wed like to think a bunch of college kids would do a charity event out of the goodness of their hearts some incentive might help in some capacity so we tried to come up with prizes Like me I went and visited the school last year met everyone and we showed an early screening of Neighbors and this year were doing a live audio commentary of Superbad with me and Chris Mintz-Plass Just stuff that you would hope theyd enjoy even if it wasnt affiliated with a charity event in any way What do you hope fundraising like this can accomplish for Alzheimers research and treatment Rogen: From my perspective its more about changing the conversation so that the government actually does something about it I think the government is reactive to peoples desires as opposed to leading the way for peoples best interest I think that people want to get elected and they want to stay in power and if it seems like people care about something then they appeal to that thing you know So thats our real goal is to make it that Alzheimers is the type of thing that people in government have to support to make the general population happy Do you think part of why its not a more strongly championed cause is because people think of it as something that affects older people Miller: Thats definitely one of them Its tough we dont have an adorable baby to put on our campaign posters we dont have success stories of people who have been cured of Alzheimers to get up and give a great inspiring speech about how if you support us people will be cured It is an uphill battle were very much at the beginning but progress has been made Its just about rallying the voices There are close to 6 million people living in this country with Alzheimers disease So its about showing the caregivers for those people with the disease that they can use their voices and if they do theyll be heard and change will come Rogen: And considering its costing the government more than any other disease its especially odd that they dont put more resources into trying to cure it Do you think a movie like Still Alice was helpful to the cause of raising awareness Rogen: Yeah Miller: Oh very For Julianne Moore to portray someone with early onset Alzheimers was extremely helpful and definitely educational So many people saw it and came to me and said “I didnt know” It was a huge step in the right direction If you look at diseases like cancer 30 years ago people whispered it because you didnt say "cancer" it wasnt in TV shows and movies Rogen: And then it started to be Movies like Love Story started to normalize it and make it something you dont have to be ashamed of Its portrayed in the culture and so it seems less like something you should be secretive about Miller: Theres also the stigma A lot of people when theyre diagnosed with Alzheimers my mom includedshe wouldnt let us tell anyone For a couple years until she was so far advanced that it was so obvious and she didnt know we were telling people she wouldnt let us tell anyone Which is really sad We just want to try to end that stigma I read that some doctors dont even tell their patients they have Alzheimers Miller: Thats a huge issue A lot of doctors dont tell because a lot of patients dont want to know They say "Well if I have dementia just leave it I dont want to know And thats not okay People need to know You can only attack something in the correct way if you know And often its not being reported as a cause of death in an autopsy which is a huge issue because more people are dying from this disease than are currently recorded What is your hope for the future of Alzheimers research and treatment Rogen: I mean people think its a curable disease Miller: Theres a lot of promising
