Adult Learners Graduate at NSCC in Pictou

first_imgThe first thing Myrtle Shaw discovered when she returned to school is that you’re never too old to learn. Ms. Shaw was 61 years of age when she signed up to complete her high school diploma for adults at the Nova Scotia Community College in Pictou. She is heading for university this fall. “I was surprised that my age didn’t matter to other students and teachers,” said Ms. Shaw. “This experience has put me on a journey of learning. It has shown me that we all have the ability to accomplish anything we want in life. It just takes faith, hard work and determination.” More than 30 students will receive their high school graduation diploma for adults from NSCC in Pictou today, June 15, as part of the Adult Learning Program. The Adult Learning Program is sponsored by the Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning, which co-ordinates a range of education programs for adults wanting to improve their reading and math skills, or complete their high school diploma. “Through the School for Adult Learning, Nova Scotians, like Myrtle, get the skills they need to succeed at home, at work and in the community,” said Education Minister Jamie Muir. “The school is part of our effort to ensure people can return to learning and help pave the way to a brighter future for themselves and their families.” About 4,800 Nova Scotians are enrolled in programs supported by the School for Adult Learning at more than 170 sites across the province. “By creating a welcoming and supportive learning environment to acquire a high school diploma, adults can access new possibilities and achieve a solid foundation for future success,” said Mike Smith, NSCC’s dean of access. “NSCC is proud to partner with the Department of Education in this progressive initiative that will improve the lives of many Nova Scotians.” The School for Adult Learning is funded by the departments of Education and Community Services, and Human Resources and Skills Development Canada. The Nova Scotia School for Adult Learning is part of the provincial government’s Skills Nova Scotia initiative, which involves training and skills upgrading, from basic literacy to workplace learning and job skills training.last_img read more

US pledges help to Iraqi forces in AlQaeda battle but insists it

first_img“The United States will continue to be in close contact … We will help them in their fight, but this is a fight in the end they will have to win and I’m confident they can.”© – AFP 2014Read: Iraq’s Fallujah falls to Al-Qaeda militants as 55 are killed >Read: Iraq suffers worst year of violence since 2008 > US SECRETARY OF State John Kerry has said the United States would stick by Iraq in its battle with Al-Qaeda-linked militants, but stressed it was “their fight.”“We will stand with the government of Iraq who push back against (militant) efforts … but it is their fight — that is something we determined some time ago,” he told reporters in Jerusalem.Iraq lost Fallujah to Al-Qaeda-linked fighters, a senior security official said Saturday, putting militants back in control of the city west of Baghdad where US forces repeatedly battled insurgents.Fighting in Anbar province killed 65 people — eight soldiers, two government-allied tribesmen and 55 militants from the Al-Qaeda-linked Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL), security officials said.It is the worst violence to hit the province in years, and the first time militants have exercised such open control in major cities since the height of the bloody insurgency that followed the US-led invasion of 2003.“We are very, very concerned” about ISIL, Kerry said.“These are the most dangerous players in the region.

FacebookBranded HTC Phone Not Happening

first_imgYou know that Facebook-branded HTC handset that everyone was talking about, earlier this week? Yeah, well, that’s not happening. The social network knocked down the rumor today in a less-than-subtle fashion. The site’s head of business development told Reuters, “The rumors around there being something more to this HTC device are overblown.”Asked point blank whether the Taiwanese company would be releasing a “Facebook phone,” Rose answered, simply, “No.”Rather, HTC may be creating a device centered around the social network without the direct blessing of Facebook. Says Rose, “This is really just another example of a manufacturer who has taken our public APIs (application programing interfaces) and integrated them into their device in an interesting way.”last_img read more

Lasith Malinga defanged Why Rohit Sharma had to protect bowler once regarded

first_imgMalinga is no longer as big a threat as he used to beDuring the first qualifier of the 2019 edition of Indian Premier League between Mumbai Indians and Chennai Super Kings, something very strange happened. The captain of the Mumbai team, Rohit Sharma, chose to not use Lasith Malinga for his full quota of overs.The curly-haired Sri Lankan ended with figures of 0/26 in 3 overs. This was fascinating because till some years ago, if any side was given an option of choosing a bowler to bowl in the slog overs, their number one choice would have been, invariably, Malinga. From there, we have come to the situation where his captain keeps him hidden from the batsmen at the end of the innings.Partly, this could be attributed to the unparalleled abilities of Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He was present at the crease at the time. His India teammate Rohit, in the opposition camp on this occasion, knew full well that Mahi loves batting against the veteran Sri Lankan. In fact, Dhoni has this unique ability to go back deep in the crease against yorkers and dig them out for big hits – the helicopter shot is a great example.Larger issues with Malinga’s bowlingBut the former India captain isn’t the only one who loves batting against Malinga. Virat Kohli’s domination of the Mumbai Indians’ pacer is also legendary. In fact, his record against India over the years has been quite ordinary. But if one looks at the last international ODI series that Sri Lanka played – in South Africa – where the bowler with slingy action captained them, he looked rather innocuous on that occasion too. There has clearly been a decline in the potency of the man with more than 300 ODI wickets.So how did the 35-year old go from being one of the greatest death bowlers of all time to become so ineffective? Why is it that unlike the old days when scoring run-a-ball against him used to be difficult, batsmen are playing him with disdain? The answer lies in the bowling style of Malinga itself.It was always believed that his success was entirely due to the incredible ability of bowling yorkers at will. To some extent, this was true. He did bowl a lot of yorkers and the batsmen, especially those in the lower order seemed clueless. But it wasn’t just the yorkers which worked in his favour. An equally important part of his success was the novelty of his action. Malinga’s unusual action played a key role in making him so effectiveIANSIf one were to analyse Malinga’s bowling closely over the years, he would realise that his yorkers were not always accurate. Very often, they were low full-tosses or half-volleys. But the batsmen still got defeated by them because his strange action made it difficult to play them properly. One particular wicket that he got presents the best example of this phenomenon.In the 2013 Champions Trophy, Malinga bowled a knee-high full toss to Kane Williamson which swung a little. But the New Zealander was so confused by the delivery that he missed it completely and was caught plumb leg-before-wicket. The clear reason for his embarrassing dismissal was the inability to get used to Malinga’s weird action. Williamson couldn’t track the ball as he would have against any other bowler.So, the novelty of Malinga’s action is as crucial to his success as his yorkers. But the Indians were playing him on a regular basis in the IPL as well as the international arena (at the beginning of this decade, the frequency of India-Sri Lanka matches was excessive). So, for them, his action had lost its novelty. As a result, whenever he missed his yorkers, and that happened quite frequently, the resultant half-volley or full-toss was put away by them easily. Then, the bowler was left with no options.Wrong perception of Malinga’s bowlingThe idea that Malinga was deadly accurate with his yorkers and could bowl them with ease was always only partly true. Yes, he did bowl a lot of yorkers but many of them missed their mark. But for batsmen who didn’t face him or anyone like him often, still struggled to pick them. Indian’s didn’t have a problem.But at this late stage of his career, when he has been in the international circuit for nearly 15 years, the novelty of the action is gone. Batsmen don’t get their brains scrambled anymore. That is why his effectiveness in international cricket has waned considerably. This is also why he had to be kept away from bowling the death overs against Dhoni and CSK.The World Cup in England would be his last. He lit up the 2007 edition and played a key role in the 2011 event as well. But by 2015, people were starting to get used to him and in this coming event, it will take much more than attempted yorkers for him to get success. Till now, we haven’t seen any sign of that.last_img read more

The session started with clerics being reminded of their failings when it comes to abuse before segueing later in the morning to a long discussion of the internet forum Reddit and writer Jordan Peterson.First up was an address from the National Advisory Committee, a group that advises the Administrative Committee of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops. Anita Raines, the group’s chair, praised the bishops’ efforts to address the abuse crisis. But she suggested the proposals reviewed by her committee did not adequately include the voices of lay Catholics.She singled out a proposed model that would allow metropolitan bishops to oversee investigations of other bishops accused of mishandling abuse cases or abusing others themselves.The laity, she said, is skeptical that bishops can hold each other accountable.“While appreciative to the openness to scrutiny … several NAC members questioned how the faithful can hold the bishops to their call,” she said.Raines said the NAC was concerned that the proposals did not mandate the involvement of lay people and would not allow for independent investigations.“This proposed model still gives the perception of bishops investigating bishops,” she said.Francesco Cesareo, chairman of the National Review Board, tasked with preventing the sexual abuse of minors in the church, was even more critical.He said that there had been “positive momentum” within the church in response to the abuse crisis and noted that many dioceses have released the names of priests and others accused of sexual misconduct. But he said the responses to the “dual crises” — abuse and leadership — have been inconsistent. He called for a more systemic approach.“Until there is a uniform response and mechanism across all dioceses … we cannot be confident that the response to this dual crisis is adequate or sustainable over time,” Cesareo said.He also expressed discomfort with solely tasking metropolitans with investigatory power, saying the NRB “remains uncomfortable” with the concept of “bishops policing bishops.”“The metropolitan should not be the sole gatekeeper,” he said.Both the NRB and the NAC insisted that the Vatican investigation into disgraced cleric Theodore McCarrick, who was stripped of his cardinal title in the wake of allegations he committed acts of sexual misconduct and child sex abuse, be conducted in a transparent manner.Becky Ianni, center, a survivor of priest abuse, holds a picture of her younger self along with other demonstrators outside the venue where the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops 2019 Spring meetings are being held in Baltimore, Tuesday, June 11, 2019. Ianni says she was 8-years-old when the priest of her family parish began to abuse her. (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana)A report from the Pew Research Center published Tuesday morning highlighted the depth of discontent among lay Catholics regarding the abuse crisis. According to the survey, the vast majority (69%) of American Catholics say recent reports of the sexual abuse crisis reflect ongoing problems within the church that are still happening.A smaller percentage of Catholics (33%) also said that they believe that sexual abuse and misconduct are more common among Catholic priests and bishops than in other religious traditions. About half (51%) of Americans overall said the same.Cardinal Blase Cupich, who heads the Archdiocese of Chicago, was one of several bishops who called for finding ways to incorporate more lay voices into the investigation process.Zach Hiner, executive director of the Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests, echoed the criticisms of the NAC and NRB about the resolutions. He expressed frustration with bishops who argued that they couldn’t mandate lay involvement.“The Metropolitan model is just more of the same, with bishops policing other bishops,” he told Religion News Service in an email. “I thought it was notable that it was said that the USCCB cannot use the word ‘must’ when referring to lay involvement in this model as that is too much of a directive.”He added: “Rather than debating just how strong the exhortation to include laypeople should be, the USCCB should be starting with the premise that laypeople will be extensively involved in any internal investigation.”Bishop Robert Deeley of Maine argued at a press conference later in the day that bishops can’t compel lay participation in the process because doing so would be going against language outlined by the Vatican.Things took an unexpected turn as the session approached the lunch hour. After initial discussion over the proposals closed, Robert Barron, the auxiliary bishop of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, delivered a presentation on how the church can reach out to the religiously unaffiliated — what Cardinal Seán Patrick O’Malley of Boston called the “second greatest problem” facing the church.Auxiliary Bishop Robert Barron of Los Angeles, center, along with other bishops, participates in a morning prayer, during the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB), 2019 Spring meetings in Baltimore, Tuesday, Jun 11, 2019. (AP Photo/Jose Luis Magana)Barron cited Peterson, a controversial Canadian psychologist beloved in some conservative circles, as an example of someone who has used social media effectively to reach the unchurched. The bishop also noted that he has conducted a successful Reddit AMA, or “Ask Me Anything,” question-and-answer session conducted on the website to reach religiously unaffiliated people.Another bishop later asked for a clarification for how to spell the website’s name.Barron did not focus on the potential impact of the abuse crisis on dwindling church numbers, but Pew’s survey did: More than one-quarter (27%) of U.S. Catholics told Pew they have scaled back Mass attendance or reduced the amount of money they donate to their parish (26%) in response to the recent reports of sexual abuse and misconduct.The resolutions designed to address the crisis are slated to be voted on later this week, alongside other topics dealing with immigration and politics. The gathering is one of several the USCCB convenes each year, assembling many of the more than 440 active and retired bishops in the United States to discuss matters impacting the American Catholic Church.

Smule Apps New LiveJam Feature Lets You Sing Live Duets With Anyone

first_imgPrivately held Smule in May 2017 raised $54 million in financing led by China’s Tencent Holdings, along with existing investors Adams Street Partners and Bessemer Ventures. The round, which gave Tencent about a 10% ownership stake in the company, reportedly gave Smule a valuation of around $600 million. Tencent’s ownership helps Smule launch LiveJam, as it is taking advantage of Tencent’s data centers to deliver the synchronized-singing feature.“We think music was the original social network – we want more people to come in and participate and share music. It’s not just sharing a song, it’s creating a song with someone else.”Smule isn’t a lip-syncing app. Its biggest competitors are apps from StarMaker Interactive and Tencent Music (Smith noted that the Chinese company has a philosophy of competing with itself).San Francisco-based Smule was founded in 2008 and today has about 200 employees. Popular on Variety A Smule rep said Clarkson isn’t paid to promote the app. “Similar to other partner artists, we work with them organically to perform on the platform,” he said.Smule has licensing deals with some 400 music publishers globally, with a library of 10 million tracks (with no vocals) that users can select from. Artists who release original songs on Smule are paid the same royalties in the same way the company pays other music publishers, Smith said.Smule has been working on LiveJam for more than two years, trying to solve the latency problem inherent in synchronizing the live audio and video of two people who may be thousands of miles apart. Smith declined to get into the technical weeds on how LiveJam actually works, saying that the app basically staggers the latency to make it seem like users are singing together. Smule has been granted a parent for its method of managing latency for live-audio streaming.“It was a tough engineering problem,” Smith said. “This isn’t one-to-millions broadcasting – this is synchronizing two people together, anywhere in the world.” The code-name for LiveJam was “Campfire,” as the vision for the feature was to mimic “the notion of someone passing a guitar around a campfire,” he said.In 2017, Smule had $130 million in revenue, up nearly 30% year over year. The company makes 90% of its revenue through user subscriptions, with about 2 million customers who pay about $8-$9 per month, with the rest coming from advertising, according to Smith. ×Actors Reveal Their Favorite Disney PrincessesSeveral actors, like Daisy Ridley, Awkwafina, Jeff Goldblum and Gina Rodriguez, reveal their favorite Disney princesses.

The trio sang Clarkson’s “Meaning of Life” together using the Smule app (with the regular non-live co-singing features) and a video clip was posted on Clarkson’s social-media channels: Social-music app Smule has launched LiveJam, a feature that it’s billing as the first time anyone can sing live with another user anywhere in the world, in real time.Smule has more than 50 million monthly users for its karaoke-style app, with 20 million songs performed daily. Now through its LiveJam feature, users can invite another person to sing live with you which other users joining a waitlist to get “passed the mic” for duets. Users can perform and chat in real time on the app, using proprietary voice and video filters.The LiveJam feature went live with the iOS version of the Smule app about three weeks ago, and support in the Android version is coming soon, according to Smule CEO and co-founder Jeffrey Smith.So far, without much fanfare, Smule has seen strong uptake of LiveJam: one-fourth of Smule users that have used LiveJam have spent more than one hour per day on the duet-singing feature. In addition, guests in a LiveJam session have remained active an average of 64% of the time. “It’s a new level of participation we’re seeing,” Smith said.last_img read more

Turner had appointed Kerensa Samanidis, formerly of the British Film Institute, to run the service internationally.— Stewart Clarke contributed to this report. Popular on Variety RELATED: Directors, Fans React to FilmStruck ShutdownThe shutdown of FilmStruck, which debuted in November 2016, comes after two other WarnerMedia digital units have gotten the axe.Warner Bros. Digital Networks’ DramaFever, a subscription VOD service specializing in Korean dramas, was abruptly shut down on Oct. 16. One week ago, Turner announced that it was pulling the plug on edgy digital-content and TV studio Super Deluxe.AT&T earlier this month signaled that it would move to restructure the WarnerMedia video-streaming portfolio. As part of announcing plans for a broad subscription-streaming entertainment service anchored by HBO that would pull in content from other parts of WarnerMedia, AT&T said it would be “consolidating resources from sub-scale D2C [direct-to-consumer] efforts.”A source familiar with AT&T’s strategy said the telco is looking to eliminate peripheral projects that aren’t major producers of revenue. “They felt Time Warner overall had too many initiatives,” the exec said. “[AT&T] have their hands full. They have no time to think about, ‘What do we do with this growth property?’”FilmStruck offered a lineup of some 1,800 contemporary and classic arthouse, indie, foreign and cult films and also was the exclusive internet-streaming home to the Criterion Collection of movies. Earlier this year, it added Warner Bros.’ library of classic films; WB shut down the Warner Archive service and migrated customers over to FilmStruck. The service was priced at $10.99 per month with access to the Criterion Collection library, and $6.99 monthly without it.FilmStruck was developed and managed by Turner Classic Movies (TCM) in conjunction with Warner Bros.

A Beginners Guide to Excel Shortcuts

first_img Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. 9 min read Register Now » August 11, 2016 Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box. Having worked in a large corporation, like Citigroup, and having been part of a small founding team, there is one consistent conviction I have gained. If there is one training exercise every employee should go through, irrespective of its size, it should be centered around Microsoft Excel.Excel is, by far, the single most used application in a majority of organizations, so it amazes me how inadequately trained employees are at it. There seems to be no formal training provided in this very important application, and employees are just expected to learn on the job.At Citigroup we used to service U.S. based clients, which in India meant working night shifts.My theory was that if all these employees, who usually worked long 12-hour shifts, were given proper Excel training, they would all go home about an hour earlier. I know it’s an oversimplification but it’s always good to have a simple objective rather than a complex one. Along with a couple of other colleagues, we devised a training course and have trained more than 200 employees.In this post, I will discuss a few basic, important Excel lessons that will help everyone do their job better and do so independently.Excel is an immensely powerful tool, which helps us work with accuracy and speed. However, if not used correctly it can seem daunting and can slow users down instead of helping them.At Citigroup, we had an ongoing competition among our colleagues around who could work on Excel for the longest period of time without touching the mouse.It may seem weird at first, but it’s all about navigation. As I mentioned, if used correctly, Excel can speed up your tasks. But every time you move your hand away from the keyboard and onto the mouse, you’re slowing yourself down.So we learned a lot of navigational and functional shortcuts using keyboards.For example, if you have a data set of 100 names in a column, and you want to go to the last name in the column, the most common way to do this is to scroll down with your mouse or one-by-one with your down arrow key until you reach the end.Here’s the faster route. Use Ctrl + Down Arrow Key for Windows or Command + Down Arrow Key for Mac.Simple. As I’m sure many Excel users have experienced, lists can be 1,000 or even 10,000 names long. Similarly, if you want to move to the end of the row, which has 30 columns, use Ctrl + Right Arrow Key for Windows or Command + Right Arrow Key for Mac.If you think about it for a moment, it becomes very intuitive. As you have seen above, using Ctrl / Command gets you to the last data point. Now, you understand that using Ctrl / Command with the proper directional arrow keys gets you to the end of either the row or the column.Then, it becomes easier to build upon this.Let’s take the same example of 100 names in a column, but pretend instead of just going to the last name in the column, you want to select those 100 names to copy and paste it somewhere else.Again, the common way to do this is to use your mouse to select the first cell, and drag down till you reach the end. The quicker way to do this is by clicking Shift + Control + Down Arrow Key for Windows or Shift + Command + Down Arrow Key for Mac.We already know Ctrl / Command + Arrow Key takes us to the end of the data set, now we have added “Shift” to our process to help us select that data set.Regardless of the size of your data set, it will always take the same amount of time to select this data set versus using your mouse to copy from the first cell to the last cell. The amount of time it will take to copy 100 names, and copy 10,000 names will be very different.If you want to select an entire row, try Shift + Spacebar. If you want to select an entire column, use Ctrl + Spacebar. These are small hacks that will help you eliminate using your mouse and keeping your fingers on your keyboard.Related: From a Legal Standpoint, Should You Go With Google Docs or Office Online?In my 10 years of Excel experience, I’ve learned that navigation and selection are the two most common activites performed in the software; therefore, simply learning how to navigate around in it will help you achieve one of Excel’s biggest benefits: speed.Another very powerful function of Excel is Paste Special. We all know the famous Copy + Paste options, but Excel provides even more immensely powerful features for pasting copied data in different ways.Below are all the available Paste options, let’s look at the three most common ones: Formulas, Values and Formats.Formulas: This is useful when you have a cell with a formula that is well-formatted – with borders, color and a specific font — and you want to copy just the formula to another location. Simply copying and pasting would copy all the aspects of the original cell, including the color, border and font. And if the destination cell has another format, you will need to change it back to its original format.Values: Similarly, if you have a formatted cell with formulas, and you want to only copy the value of the cell, then this function is useful. Or, if you have an entire section full of formulas, and you want to turn that into absolute values, simply copy the entire section, and paste it on top of it with this function: paste special + values.Formats: This is useful when you have an Excel sheet you have perfectly formatted, and you want to replicate that format somewhere else, in the same file or another file. Using paste special + formats will copy just the format, without any other value or formula.Related: 5 Tools for Downloading and Analyzing Twitter DataConditional formatting is also extremely effective and powerful.Humans respond well to visuals. Conditional formatting helps us visualize the data, depending on certain conditions.For example, let’s pretend you need to create 30 variations of a marketing slogan. The restriction is that it can’t be more than 50 characters.We can use a simple function, like “len,” (short for length) to determine the character count.To top it off, we can apply conditional formatting to say: “If the count of characters is greater than 50, color the cell red, or if the count of characters is less than 45, color it green.”This quickly tells you if the count is above 50, but still gives you the opportunity to decrease the slogan to the applied character count.Shortcuts like this help improve accuracy within Excel, and the beauty of it is the efficiency improves as the data set increases. Therefore, if you are analyzing 30 marketing slogans, you can do it manually, but if you are analyzing 3,000 sentences’ word count, it makes it exponentially easier to use the shortcuts listed above.Even a simple tool like autofill that allows you to populate a column with sequential dates removes a lot of manual work.To use it, input the first two dates. Select them. Then you will see a cross on the bottom left, like in the gif below. Select it, and drag it to the end. This seems like a very simple solution, but when used in other situations, such as filling in serial numbers, or even filling in even and odd numbers, it certainly saves a lot of time.Now, let’s chat about freeze panes, which is one of my favorite shortcuts.I’ve had so many people ask me about the concept of freeze panes. They understand the concept, but they aren’t sure how to use it. Here’s what you need to remember: north west.Freeze panes are used when the size of the sheet you are analyzing is bigger than your screen size, which is most often the case. Let’s say you have a date column on the far, left column and city names on the first row.Related: 3 Things to Know About Microsoft’s New Office 365 for BusinessMaybe you are trying to find a particular cell that corresponds to a date and a city, and it is all the way in the bottom, right-hand corner. But everytime you go there, you lose the date and city name. Enter freeze panes.To freeze the top row and far, left column, place your cursor on B2.Excel freezes all rows above the cursor and all columns to the left of it, so everything to the north and everything to the west is frozen regardless of where you scroll.In the gif below, you’ll see how the dates and cities disappear when scrolling before applying the freeze pane.Keep in mind that Excel cannot be taught, it must be explored. Only by consistenly using it will we get better at it, and overcome our fear of it.Learn the basics first, and then build more knowledge on top of that, and you’ll begin to work more and more efficiently. More often than not we know what we want, and we know Excel can do it, but unfortunately, many people are unable to find the functions they need to achieve their objectives. By learning the basics, it will help you get there.As for the companies, teaching Excel can have a huge (positive) effect on employee satisfaction and morale because it shows them that you care about their professional growth.

Surgery is the only chance for a cure, but most patients are not surgical candidates because of the location of the tumor in the pancreas or because the cancer has spread. Moreover, most people who undergo surgery relapse and subsequently die of pancreatic cancer.The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved three treatments in the past 20 years for advanced pancreatic cancer to help patients live longer: (1) gemcitabine; (2) erlotinib in combination with gemcitabine; and (3) nab-paclitaxel in combination with gemcitabine.“Today we know more about this form of cancer. We know it usually starts in the pancreatic ducts and that the KRAS gene is mutated in tumor samples from most patients with pancreatic cancer,” says Abhilasha Nair, M.D., an oncologist on the FDA team that works on cancers of the digestive system, including the stomach, pancreas and colon.Pancreatic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer death in the United States. Yearly, about 46,420 people will be diagnosed with the disease and 39,590 will die from it, according to the National Cancer Institute.This cancer accounts for less than 3 percent of new cancer diagnoses each year, but it is aggressive and deadly. The five-year survival rate is only about 5 percent. If untreated, patients can die quickly, Nair says. Treatments include chemotherapy and, for some patients, surgery and/or radiation therapy.Scientists are researching how certain factors increase the risk for pancreatic cancer. They include smoking, pancreatitis, longstanding diabetes, genetic changes (BRCA1 and BRCA2 mutations) and Lynch syndrome (an inherited disorder that increases the risk for certain cancers).Scientists continue to work on developing drugs that target the KRAS mutation found in pancreatic tumors. “Getting the right drug to target the right mutation would be a big break for treating patients with pancreatic cancer,” Nair says. “KRAS is a very evasive target. We need to learn more about it so we can better understand how to overcome it.”To achieve that, scientists are digging deep into the cells of tumors to learn why pancreatic cancer is resistant to most available chemotherapy drugs.“Something in the extracellular matrix may be preventing the tumor cells from being affected by chemotherapy,” Nair says. Much of the research focuses on the tumor’s environment, identifying ways to overcome the tumor’s defenses and improving the delivery of chemotherapy directly to cancer cells.Researchers are also exploring immune therapies, which have been successful in treating melanoma and other cancers. With immune therapy, doctors could improve the patient’s own defenses against the cancer.“Not too long ago, the prognosis for melanoma patients was very poor. But with the advent of these new therapies that boost the patient’s own immune system, the landscape has greatly improved,” Nair says. “We hope that new research in pancreatic cancer will ultimately give us a similar if not better outcome in the fight against this aggressive cancer.”For more information: www.fda.gov 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 | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 07, 2019 Qfix kVue One Proton Couch Top Validated by Mevion Medical Systems Qfix and Mevion Medical Systems announced that a special version of the kVue One Proton couch top is now both validated… read morelast_img read more

Social media aflutter over Anna Vissi as Disy MEP rumours updated

first_imgCypriot social media went into overdrive on Wednesday evening after a report saying ruling Disy would be fielding popular singer Anna Vissi in the upcoming European Parliament elections.Though not officially confirmed by the party, netizens took to their keyboards and mobile phones to express their views on the news.Party leader Averof Neophytou would neither confirm nor deny the report by daily newspaper Politis.“For weeks now, various people have been writing things about Disy’s ticket. We thought it would be best to avoid confirmations or denials,” Neophytou said, pointing out that everything would probably become clear on Friday if the number of candidates does not exceed the available positions.The rumours were quelled in the afternoon after several outlets run reports that Vissi will not be running though no official sources were cited.Disy hopefuls will be submitting their candidacies on Friday and if there are over six an election will be held within the party.So far two members have officially submitted their candidacy, sitting MEP Lefteris Christophorou and MP Elena Stavrou.MP Nicos Tornaritis is also expected to run while reports suggested former news presenter and current House spokesman Loukas Fourlas could also be running. You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
