Photo: Amari Cooper’s Name Has Been Added To The First-Team All-American Wall At Alabama

first_imgAmari Cooper named first team all american.Amari Cooper’s time at Alabama has come to an end, as the wide receiver is headed to the NFL, but the former star will be forever remembered inside the Crimson Tide’s facility. The 6-foot-1, 210-pound wideout is one of the greatest wide receivers in Alabama history, so it’d be pretty tough to forget him, but that won’t be possible now, anyway. Cooper’s name has been etched into the first-team All-American wall inside the Crimson Tide’s facility, next to the other wide receivers who accomplished similar greatness. Cooper finished his Alabama career with 3,463 receiving yards and 31 touchdowns. He’s expected to be an early-to-mid first-round pick in the upcoming NFL Draft.last_img read more

Coco Rocha Hosts DKMS X Jimmy Choo Shopping Event

first_imgInternational supermodel and DKMS Ambassador, Coco Rocha, and DKMS Global Ambassador and Co-Founder, Katharina Harf, welcomed supporters to the Jimmy Choo store on Madison Avenue this week for an exclusive shopping event to benefit DKMS.Coco Rocha and Katharina HarfDKMS is an international nonprofit dedicated to the fight against blood cancer. DKMS founder, Peter Harf, spoke about the importance of getting swabbed and potentially saving a life by becoming a bone marrow donor.“Coco and Jimmy Choo have both been incredible partners as we continue our work to support patients battling blood cancer and to motivate people to register as bone marrow donors. Our mission is as simple as it is life-changing. Everyone can get swabbed and therefore, everyone can become a lifesaving hero,” said Katharina Harf.The evening also celebrated cancer survivor Anthony Daniels, who was diagnosed with blood cancer at just 19 years old during his sophomore year at Fordham University. Despite four relapses and 30 rounds of chemotherapy, Daniels never gave up trying to find a bone marrow match. While searching for a match, he teamed up with DKMS to help raise awareness about becoming a bone marrow donor. As a result, Daniels’ efforts and story helped register more than 4000 potential bone marrow donors and more than 50 cancer patients found their lifesaving donor matches.The event, held at Jimmy Choo’s Madison Avenue location offered guests and supporters the opportunity to discover the Jimmy Choo Autumn Winter 2016 Collection.last_img read more

Quest for a repeat

Columbus Crew vs. Real Salt Lake, Game 1Rio Tinto Stadium; Sat. Oct. 31 @ 6 p.m.Columbus Crew vs. Real Salt Lake, Game 2Crew Stadium; Thurs. Nov. 5 @ 8 p.m.Players to watch:Columbus – Chad Marshall. The 2008 Defender of the Year has sat out the last six MLS regular season games recovering from a knee injury. A healthy Marshall could make the difference for a team struggling to regain its mid-season formReal Salt Lake – Robbie Findley. The Real Salt Lake forward leads his team in goals with 12 on the season and was instrumental in securing Real Salt Lake’s spot in the playoffs with a two goal performance against rival Colorado Rapids.Key to the Match:Crew coach Robert Warzycha’s ability to find the right 11 players to begin the playoffs. Like a baseball manager trying to push the right buttons, Warzycha has tweaked his rotation at an almost dizzying pace. Perhaps a more settled lineup in the playoffs will see an increase in goals over the drought suffered toward the end of the regular season. This is a must in a series that is decided by aggregate goal totals. The MLS Cup playoffs are upon us. Following the regular season finale played in Columbus between the Crew and the New England Revolution, the once muddied playoff waters have cleared.The Columbus Crew (13-7-10) will limp into the playoffs, losers of three of their last four. The team is riddled with injuries, and failed to net a single goal in any of the losses.The Crew’s road to repeating their championship win begins Saturday at Rio Tinto Stadium in Utah against Real Salt Lake (11-12-7) in the first match of their Eastern Conference Semifinal Series. Conference Semifinal series are conducted in a home-and-home, aggregate-goal format. The lower-seeded team, Real Salt Lake, hosts the first game. The winners of the first four series advance to single-game Conference Championships that determine the MLS Cup finalists, according to the MLS rules of competition.By virtue of their victory over Columbus, New England (11-10-9) leapfrogged Real Salt Lake and will face the Chicago Fire (11-7-12) in their own semi-final series.Columbus coach Robert Warzycha addressed his team’s lack of recent scoring after the Crew’s defeat.“We have a week before the game. We have to look at the tape and find out what the best combination [of players] is going to be,” Warzycha said.His propensity to shift lineups is well documented this season. Last year’s coach, Sigi Schmid, attempted to use the same starting 11 down the stretch. Warzycha has not shown the same willingness to do so. He hasn’t always had a choice.“I don’t know who that 11 are going to be,” Warzycha said. “Hopefully, everyone gets a chance in the playoffs but the best thing would be to have one team. Knowing life, it’s not going to be possible.”“We’re not taking the momentum into the playoffs that we’d like to, but we’re capable of beating anyone,” Crew midfielder Adam Moffat said.So with the Supporter’s Shield, given annually to the team with the best regular season record, and home-field advantage throughout the MLS playoffs already in hand, was there a lack of motivation against the Revolution?“It was a game we still wanted,” Crew goalkeeper William Hesmer said. “You want to get into a rhythm.”Regardless of the lack of success at the regular season’s end, the Crew have much to be proud of. They are only the second team in MLS history to record two consecutive Supporter’s Shields, joining D.C. United who accomplished the repeat in 2006-07.“This team is making a statement winning last year and being first this year,” Warzycha said of his club. “This team doesn’t have to prove anything to anybody.”The Crew have played two matches against their first playoff opponent, Real Salt Lake, this season. The two teams split the regular season matchups with one win each.Crew captain Frankie Hejduk spoke about the club’s first round matchup.“We’re the champions,” Hejduk said. “We should be able to beat everyone. We’re going to have to go there prepared for a battle.”Even with so many questions lingering over the Crew concerning their health, their lineup and a sudden loss of scoring punch, there is another old sports adage that the other MLS playoff teams must reckon with: to be the best, you have to beat the best.At least for now, the Crew are the best. read more

Womens basketball Ohio State Notre Dame battle for berth in Elite Eight

Ohio State junior guard Kelsey Mitchell drives to the basket and atttempts a layup against Purdue in the Big Ten tournament semifinal in Indianapolis on March 4. Credit: Ashley Nelson | Sports DirectorThe No. 5 seed Ohio State women’s basketball team heads back to Lexington, Kentucky, for its second consecutive Sweet 16 appearance, after ending the seasons of No. 12 seed Western Kentucky and No. 4 seed Kentucky in the first and second rounds of the NCAA tournament.The Buckeyes lost last season in the round of 16 to No. 6 Tennessee. This year, OSU squares off against No. 1 seed Notre Dame, which is dealing with the recent season-ending ACL injury of its leading scorer and rebounder, Brianna Turner.OSU freshman forward Tori McCoy was due to match up with Turner, and said she will make the best of the situation.“She’s a great post player, but if she’s not playing, I’m going to use that to my advantage,” McCoy said.This news comes at a time when the Buckeyes’ post players are hitting their stride. Senior forward Shayla Cooper has averaged 14 points, 9.6 rebounds and 3.6 assists per game in the eight games since redshirt junior forward Stephanie Mavunga left the lineup with a right foot injury. McCoy has also found her groove recently. She is 11 of 12 from the field and averaging 13 points, 7.5 rebounds and four blocks in the past two tournament games. “I had to come alive,” McCoy said. “It was kind of weird a little bit, being able to take that role and being able to score like that. I know that it was meant for me to come out and try to do something and contribute a little bit.”OSU’s leading scorer and Big Ten Player of the Year, junior guard Kelsey Mitchell, got off to a slow start in the first round versus Western Kentucky, but ended the game with 15 points. In the second round, she scored a more characteristic 21 points, and said she will look to carry that confidence over to Friday’s game.“(I will) try to stay confident in my game,” she said. “Trying to stay confident in my play and the confidence my teammates and coach have for me. I want to continue to have that confidence, I think that should be fine. Then defensively make sure I’m on my P’s and Q’s as far as not fouling, staying out of foul trouble as much as possible, small stuff like that.”The Scarlet and Gray will have the advantage of familiarity as they head back to Lexington for their third straight game. OSU traveled to Lexington, Kentucky — the location of the first two rounds. However, the venue is different.“Even though it’s a different arena — we’re going to play in Rupp (Arena) now — I think being in the same place will bring some comfort to our team,” OSU coach Kevin McGuff said.Although some might’ve seen playing in Lexington against the hometown Kentucky Wildcats as a disadvantage, McGuff believes it might’ve been for the best.“I think that tested our resolve a little bit, that Kentucky game, in a tough environment. So we had to show a lot of fortitude, and now you’re going up against one of the best teams in the country, and they’re going to test us in many ways,” he said. “We’re going to have moments where we face adversity, we have to stick together and have to execute. As hard as it was to go on the road, we’re better for it than we would’ve been if we played at home.”OSU will tipoff against Notre Dame at 7 p.m. Friday. read more

UK India can do great business and achieve real change British envoy

first_imgTech Rocketship Award winners posing with British Deputy High Commissioner Dominic McAllister and Gita Krisnankutty – first secretary of head of inward investment India.IBTimes India/Sami KhanThere are now a record 842 Indian companies operating in the UK, up from 800 in the previous year, with combined revenues of almost £48 billion (£46.4 billion in 2018 report), according to a Grant Thornton-CII report. Indian companies paid a combined total of over £684 million in corporation tax, which is almost double the amount recorded in last year’s report (£360 million), and employed 104,783 people (104,932 in the 2018 report). The India Meets Britain Tracker 2019 report was released earlier this year. GT and CII are holding a roadshow in Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Mumbai and New Delhi to highlight the report’s findings.During the report’s launch at the roadshow in Bengaluru on Tuesday, British Deputy High Commissioner in Bengaluru, Dominic McAllister, said: “We are determined that the UK will be the best place in the world to grow your business. The UK government is committed to facilitating the closest possible relationships between business leaders in both our countries – including supporting pioneers in innovation. The UK and India can do great business and achieve real change. Both governments are committed to taking this further by building on the technology partnership; leveraging finance; sharing skills and expertise.”The report provides a tracker of the fastest-growing companies, as measured by those with a turnover of more than £5 million, year-on-year revenue growth of at least 10 percent and a minimum two-year track-record in the UK. This year’s tracker includes 62 companies that recorded an average growth rate of 37 percent. The total combined revenue of these companies reached over £12 billion last year. Three companies in this year’s tracker reported a growth of more than 100 percent. UNCTAD/twitterThe UK and India have been the top five investors in each other’s economies since 2010. Since 2010, the UK has been the largest G20 investor in India. Building on the UK’s Industrial Strategy, the India-UK Tech Partnership sets out how we are building a Britain fit for the future – how we will help businesses create better, higher-paying jobs with investment in the skills, industries, and infrastructure that we will need, added McAllister.Technology and telecoms companies continue to dominate the Tracker, as they have done since its launch in 2014. This year, they account for 35 percent of the fastest-growing companies. Engineering and manufacturing companies are the next in line, accounting for 16 percent of the 2019 Tracker. This is followed by pharmaceutical and chemical companies, which account for 15 percent, continuing historically strong representation.The geographical spread of the fastest-growing Indian companies across the UK remains unchanged compared to last year. London continues to be the preferred location for more than half (53 percent) of the 62 fastest growing Indian companies. London is the global home of capital. Over £2.2 billion (Rs 20,000 crore) in Masala Bonds have been listed on the London Stock Exchange by Indian companies.last_img read more

Conflict Of Interest For USTR Nominee Holding Up Trumps Plan To Reopen

first_img Listen Nicoguaro President Trump has pushed back the start date for renegotiating the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) several times over the past few months, in large part because the Senate has yet to vote on the confirmation of his nominee for U.S. trade representative, attorney Robert Lighthizer. By law, only the U.S. trade representative can notify Congress of the president’s intent to renegotiate a trade agreement.“One of the requirements in terms of what the USTR must satisfy is that he has not worked for any foreign interest involved in a negotiation with the United States government,” says Stephen Lande, president of Manchester Trade, a trade policy advisory firm based in Washington, D.C. “And Bob Lighthizer was involved actually in a fairly minor negotiation with Brazil. So one needs a waiver for that in order for the Senate to be in a position to consider his nomination and, of course, approve his nomination.”Lande says Trump seems to be counting on such a waiver being attached to a must-pass measure to fund the federal government.The Houston area has a big stake in what happens next. “There’s $18 billion traded between Houston alone and Mexico, which is more than many countries trade between each other,” says Kenneth Smith Ramos, who heads the trade and NAFTA office at the Mexican Embassy to the U.S.Once the president notifies Congress of his intent to reopen NAFTA, that will trigger a 90-day countdown. Three-way talks with Mexico and Canada could begin by mid-summer. To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: 00:00 /01:20center_img X Sharelast_img read more

Male baboons found to engage in feticide

first_img Infanticide has been documented in a variety of species, including lions, rodents, whales, and many types of primates, including humans. The general consensus in the scientific community is that the behavior occurs because it makes the mother more available to the male that does the killing. Less common is feticide, where a male causes harm to a pregnant female that results in the death of the fetus. In this new effort, the researchers report on the first-ever evidence of feticide in baboons.Prior research has shown that baboons engage in infanticide, but until now, it was not known that sometimes males also engage in feticide. In studying baboons in the Amboseli basin in Kenya the researchers report that they observed a number of feticide episodes by males that were new to a group. They note also that such attacks often left the mother dead as well, thus defeating the purpose of the attack. They report that causing a mother to abort a fetus reduced both pregnancy and lactation times, making the females more readily available for mating if they managed to survive the attack. They noted also that in cases when the female did survive, it was often the case that she would mate with her attacker.The researchers report that such attacks happened more often during periods of scarce resources; when new males managed to achieve high status quickly; when there were a lot of infants in a group; or if the males remained with a new group for more than three months. The team notes that it was obviously much more difficult to spot feticide than infanticide—they had to change their study habits to follow females after intercourse for a period of time to note changes in physiology or behavior that likely signaled a pregnancy and then to watch for episodes of violence against them and what followed afterwards. © 2017 Phys.org (Phys.org)—A team of researchers from several institutions in the U.S., some with ties to the Institute of Primate Research, National Museums of Kenya, has found that male baboons in the wild at times engage in feticide. In their paper published in the journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B, the researchers describe their observations and offer some theories on why they believe it occurs.

Zipple et al. Conditional fetal and infant killing by male baboons, Proceedings of the Royal Society B: Biological Sciences (2017). DOI: 10.1098/rspb.2016.2561AbstractSexually selected feticide—the death of infants in utero as a result of male behaviour—has only rarely been described or analysed, although it is presumed to be favoured by the same selective pressures that favour sexually selected infanticide. To test this hypothesis, we measured the frequency of feticide and infanticide by male baboons of the Amboseli basin in Kenya, and examined which characteristics of a male and his environment made him more likely to commit feticide and/or infanticide. We found a dramatic increase in fetal and infant death rates, but no increase in death rates of 1- to 2-year-old individuals, following the immigration of males who stood to benefit from feticide and infanticide. Specifically, fetal and infant death rates were highest following immigrations in which: (i) the immigrant male rapidly attained high rank, (ii) that male remained consistently resident in the group for at least three months, (iii) food availability and social group range overlap was relatively low and (iv) relatively many pregnant females and/or dependent infants were present. Together, these results provide strong evidence for the existence of both sexually selected feticide and infanticide in our population, and they indicate that feticide and infanticide are conditional male behavioural strategies employed under particular circumstances.Press releaselast_img read more

In England provision of IVF treatment on the NHS

first_imgIn England, provision of IVF treatment on the NHS varies across the health trusts.The National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) recommends women under 40, who are struggling to conceive and who meet the right criteria, receive three full cycles of IVF treatment on the NHS to maximise their chances of getting pregnant.Each IVF cycle can cost anywhere between £1,300 and £6,000 and offers success rates of about 1 in 3 for women under 35.“It has been a very emotional journey over the last six years,” Deborah told BBC NI in an interview today.“You imagine what your child will be like … when that doesn’t happen then it can be very, very hard.“Our first cycle of IVF treatment didn’t result in a pregnancy so that was probably the most difficult.”In a response, the Department of Health said: “In 2014 the Department endorsed the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence clinical guidelines which recommends three full cycles of publicly funded IVF, subject to certain criteria.“However, implementation would have significant cost implications for the Health and Social Care Board, which must be carefully considered within the context of ongoing budget pressures and other competing HSC services requiring new investment in the years ahead.”Stephen Cross said that if their next treatment is unsuccessful, they will persevere with a fifth attempt.“The desire to create a child to hold and to care for, watch them go to school. It’s very difficult.“We were going from the elation of being pregnant and seeing the baby scan to, all of a sudden in a matter of weeks, it was gone.“As long as we have the resources we feel we will definitely continue on, but we can’t continue forever,” Mr Cross added.DERRY COUPLE DEBORAH AND STEPHEN CROSS WANT IVF EQUALITY IN NORTH was last modified: November 7th, 2016 by John2John2 Tags: “The onus at present is on Michelle O’Neill,” Mrs Cross said.“In Scotland they have fully implemented the NICE guidelines and they are now providing three publically funded cycles of treatment,” she said.“In Wales they provide two (cycles).

The silver equities traded almost in lock step wit

first_img The silver equities traded almost in lock step with their golden brethren—and Nick Laird’s Intraday Silver Sentiment Index closed up 0.73%. Palladium didn’t do much until shortly before 11 a.m. in Zurich.  The tiny rally from there tacked a percent on the price, but the traders in New York cut that gain in half by the close—and palladium finished up another four bucks at $869.00 spot.  They’re certainly not letting this metal, and platinum, run away to the upside, which is what they both want to do. First Majestic is a mining company focused on silver production in México and is aggressively pursuing the development of its existing mineral property assets. The Company presently owns and operates five producing silver mines; the La Parrilla Silver Mine, the San Martin Silver Mine, the La Encantada Silver Mine, the La Guitarra Silver Mine, and the Del Toro Silver Mine. Production from these five mines is anticipated to be between 12.70 to 13.35 million ounces of pure silver or 14.85 to 15.60 million ounces of silver equivalents in 2014.

It was a Groundhog Day in platinum After the obligatory sell-off at the New York open on Monday evening, the gold price headed a bit lower in Far East trading on their Tuesday—and didn’t rally until 2 p.m. Hong Kong time, an hour before the London open.  That rally, such as it was, got dealt with in the usual manner by a seller of last resort once the London p.m. gold “fix” was in.  The low came around noon EDT—and from there it rallied gently until 4 p.m.—and then traded flat from there. The high and low tick were recorded by the CME Group as $1,325.70 and $1,314.30 in the August contract. Gold finished the Tuesday trading session at $1,319.60 spot, down 40 cents from Monday’s close.  Net volume was pretty light at 96,000 contracts. Silver also had the same obligatory sell-off at the New York open on Monday night.  Silver traded lower until a rally began at the noon silver fix in London—and that rally got stepped on minutes after the 8:20 a.m. EDT Comex open.  The HFT boyz did the rest once the p.m. gold fix was done.  Silver’s low was also at noon in New York—and the subsequent rally made it back to Monday’s close minutes after 4 p.m. in electronic trading, before selling off a few pennies. The high and low were recorded as $21.245 and $20.955 in the September contract. Silver finished the day at $21.015 spot, down 3 cents from Monday.  Volume, net of July and August, was very robust at 44,500 contracts. The gold stocks gapped up a bit at the open—and stayed up until the HFT boyz took gold down at the London p.m. gold fix.  From that point the stocks slid into negative territory, with the low of the day coming minutes after 11:30 a.m. EDT.  The subsequent rally took the stocks back into positive territory, hitting their absolute highs around 2:30 p.m. in New York—and then traded sideways into the close.  The HUI finished up 1.49%. Platinum had a similar trading pattern on Tuesday as it did on Monday—and the price finished exactly on its Monday close as well—$1,491.00 spot—and a dollar off its Friday close.  What are the chances that these were free market events? As you can see, we’re still chopping sideways in price in both metals waiting for some sort of resolution to this this current overbought situation—and the now wildly bearish COT numbers, especially in silver.  I’m also aware that there may be a ‘black swan’ out there—and just as much as a precious metal shortage would end the price management scheme, the same can be said for some other potential “long tail” events that are unknown to us at the moment. Yesterday at the close of Comex trading, was the cut-off for Friday’s COT Report—and just looking at the five day reporting period on the charts above, I would guess that we’ll see more deterioration in the Commercial net short position in both gold and silver, but mostly in gold.  I’ll be happy to wrong, but that’s the way I’d bet ten bucks if forced to. As I type this paragraph, it’s about 45 minutes to the London open.  All four precious metals are up a bit from their respective closes on Tuesday.  Gold volume is pretty light, but higher than it was this time yesterday.  Silver volume is light as well—and lower that it was on Tuesday at this time.  The dollar index is flat. And as I prepared to send this out the door at 4:45 a.m. EDT, I note that not a lot has changed since I wrote the above paragraph a bit over two hours ago.  All four precious metals are hanging onto some or all of their gains from back then—and volumes are more or less what I expect at this time of day when there isn’t much going on from a price perspective.  The dollar index, which had been flat, dipped within spitting distance of the 80.00 level about forty minutes before the London open, but a buyer of last resort was there to save the day. I haven’t the foggiest idea as to what the rest of the Wednesday trading session will bring—and nothing will surprise me when I look at the gold chart later this morning. Enjoy your day—and I’ll see you here tomorrow. The dollar index closed late on Monday afternoon in New York at 80.22—and it rose to its 80.29 ‘high’ by 11:15 a.m. BST in London.  By noon in New York it was at its 80.15 ‘low’ by noon in New York.  It didn’t do much after that—and finished the Monday session at 80.17—down a whole 5 basis points. The CME’s Daily Delivery Report showed that 25 gold and 40 silver contracts were posted for delivery within the Comex-approved depositories on Thursday.  Jefferies was the issuer on all of them in both metals—and the stoppers were “all the usual suspects”—and the link to yesterday’s Issuers and Stoppers Report is here. There was another deposit into GLD yesterday.  This time an authorized participant added 67,372 troy ounces.  And as of 9:47 p.m. yesterday evening, there were no reported changes in SLV. Just as a matter of interest, since the rallies in both gold and silver began a bit over a month ago, there has been 424,653 troy ounces of gold added to GLD—and 10.31 million troy ounces of silver withdrawn from SLV.  There have been no deposits of silver at all—only withdrawals.  Ted Butler says that SLV is owned about 8 million ounces. The U.S. Mint had a sales report yesterday.  They sold 2,000 troy ounces of gold eagles—500 one-ounce 24K gold buffaloes—-and 130,000 silver eagles. The Royal Canadian Mint posted its Q1-2014 report on its website the other day—and here is what they had to say about bullion sales on pages 5 and 6—“Sales of Gold Maple Leaf (GML) coins declined 34.6% to 176,000 ounces compared to 269,000 ounces in the same period in 2013. Sales of Silver Maple Leaf (SML) coins increased 24.2% to 8.2 million ounces from 6.6 million ounces in the same period last year. The decline in GML sales reflects the lack of volatility in the gold price during the fourth quarter of 2013 and first quarter of 2014 as well as continuing activity in the gold bullion secondary market. The increase in SML sales reflects continued strong demand in North America, Europe and emerging markets such as Southeast Asia.“ “Refinery revenues were up slightly in the thirteen weeks to March 29, 2014. Gold rough deposits increased as the Mint competes successfully for a growing market share. This was partially offset by a decline in silver rough deposits due to increased competition in the silver refining sector. Also contributing to this growth was an increase in sales of 1 kg gold bars, which increased 525% to 18,099 bars, which offset a contraction in sales of 100 oz silver bars, which decreased 25% to 12,562 bars.“ Over at the Comex-approved depositories on Monday there was a decent amount of gold deposited, as HSBC USA took in 32,092 troy ounces.  None was reported shipped out.  The link to that activity is here. As is almost always the case, the activity in silver was far bigger.  Only 9,903 troy ounces were reported received, but a very decent 1,157,462 troy ounces were shipped out the door.  The link to that action is here. I have a far more reasonable number of stories today—and there should be at least a couple in here that you’ll find of interest. It was one of the largest three week Commitment of Trader changes in memory for gold, as more than 97,000 commercial contracts were sold on a $70 gold price rally since June 10. Most notable was that the raptors accounted for 80,000 contracts of the commercial selling and the technical funds 88,000 contracts of the buy side. Never have two distinct groups controlled so much of the positioning.   In COMEX silver futures, the 9,100 contract increase put the total commercial net short position at 52,000 contracts. This is highest level of commercial shorts in COMEX silver since December 18, 2012. I hope everyone knows that “highest” here means, in COT terms, most bearish. I must point out that in December 2012 silver was around $34; whereas today the price is near $21 and below the cost of production for many primary silver miners. – Silver analyst Ted Butler: 07 July 2014 Another day—and another non-for-profit seller in both gold and silver at the London p.m. gold fix—and it was a Groundhog Day in platinum.  Here are the 6-month charts for both gold and silver updated with Tuesday’s trading data.

Hepatitis Cinfected patients with a history of liver cancer can be treated

first_img Source:https://www.utsouthwestern.edu/newsroom/articles/year-2019/hepatitis-c.html Reviewed by Alina Shrourou, B.Sc. (Editor)Jan 18 2019A large, multi-center study refutes earlier suggestions that antiviral drugs for treating hepatitis C may lead to a higher recurrence of liver cancer.Researchers at UT Southwestern Medical Center studied the records of patients who had been successfully treated for liver cancer at 31 medical centers in North America, comparing those who were and were not given direct-acting antivirals for hepatitis C. The study found no significant difference in the recurrence of liver cancer between the two groups.Similarly, the study found no difference in the aggressiveness of the cancer in those patients who did experience a recurrence.”Our study was inspired by a single-center study from Spanish investigators in 2016. That study gained a lot of press and sparked fear about treating liver cancer patients for their hepatitis C,” said Dr. Amit Singal, Associate Professor of Internal Medicine and Medical Director of the Liver Tumor Program. “Based on these new data, providers can feel reassured that it is safe to treat hepatitis C in these patients and allow them to receive the known benefits of hepatitis C therapy.”Related StoriesNew protein target for deadly ovarian cancerStudy reveals link between inflammatory diet and colorectal cancer riskLiving with advanced breast cancerSome 3.2 million individuals in the U.S., the large majority of them baby boomers, have chronic hepatitis C infection. Many of these individuals struggle with inflammation of the liver and impaired liver function, as well as cirrhosis, or scarring of liver tissue. Since 2013, effective antiviral drugs have been available to treat hepatitis C infection.Chronic hepatitis C infection is also one of the leading causes of liver cancer. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, half of all individuals with liver cancer have underlying chronic hepatitis C infection.The rate of new cases of liver cancer has been rising steadily in recent decades, and the state of Texas has one of the highest rates of occurrence in the country.When liver cancer is diagnosed early, it can be effectively treated with surgery, ablation, or radiation therapy. Sometimes liver cancer patients have their tumor successfully removed, but the underlying chronic hepatitis C infection remains and continues to impair liver function further.In this study, published in the journal Gastroenterology, 42 percent of liver cancer survivors who were treated with direct-acting antivirals (DAAs) experienced a recurrence of their cancer, compared with 59 percent of patients who were not treated with antivirals.”Our results suggest that use of DAA therapies is safe and potentially beneficial in hepatitis C-infected patients with a history of liver cancer,” said Dr. Singal, who holds the David Bruton, Jr. Professorship in Clinical Cancer Research and is Clinical Chief of Hepatology.​last_img read more
