De Gea Absent from Man Uniteds Marketing Over His Failed Transfer

Miami – Manchester United goalkeeper, David De Gea, is absent from the British club’s official marketing products this season due to his last-minute failed transfer on deadline day to Real Madrid.The Red Devils were allegedly forced to remove his image from several of the promotional materials where players’ names and photos appear, such as the club’s calendar.According to UK’s Daily Mirror, a former Man United employee declared that the British club was not sure if De Gea was going to remain with them. Therefore, they had to eliminate his image as a Red Devils player when he was about to sign with Real Madrid, because it was risky and it would have affected the fans.“The marketing department was running out of time, they were desperate to include De Gea, but thought he would end up leaving so they could not risk to have one of their former stars appear in the calendar that would hang on their fans’ walls,” explained the former club’s employee.The same source, who chose to speak on the condition of anonymity, said the Spanish star was also taken out of every other Manchester United official advertisement this season.David De Gea’s photo does not appear on the team’s souvenirs, such as books and notebooks, which were printed before the closing of the last summer transfer window.Ever since his transfer to Real Madrid failed, the 24-year-old Spanish international resolved his problems with manager Louis Van Gaal and both have been quoted as saying to be “delighted” to continue working together.De Gea is back to being the team’s main goalie after signing a new four-year contract with the Red Devils until 2019, with option for extension.Even if deleted from the team’s marketing, De Gea will still receive royalties from the sale of the club’s products. read more

Developing world needs surveillance system to slash avoidable infections – UN expert

10 December 2010Health care-associated infections, an avoidable scourge estimated to affect hundreds of millions of people globally, are at least twice as high in the developing world as in high-income countries, according to the first review of its kind, co-authored by a United Nations health official. Factors increasing the risk of such infections include poor hygiene and waste disposal, inadequate infrastructure and equipment, understaffing, overcrowding, lack of basic infection control knowledge and implementation, unsafe procedures, and a lack of guidelines and policies.“Health-care associated infections have long been established as the biggest cause of avoidable harm and unnecessary death in the health systems of high-income countries,” said Benedetta Allegranzi, Technical Lead for the Clean Care is Safer Care programme at the UN World Health Organization (WHO), co-author of the study published in the British medical journal The Lancet today.“We now know that the situation in developing countries is even worse. There, levels of health-care associated infection are at least twice as high. One in three patients having surgery in some settings with limited resources becomes infected. Solutions exist, and the time to act is now. The cost of delay is even more lives tragically lost.”Implementing system-wide surveillance, training, education and good communication, using devices appropriately, following proper procedures, and ensuring optimal hand hygiene practices are some of the solutions to the problem, according to the study. To be successful, they ultimately require a change of health-care workers’ behaviour.While surveillance systems exist in high-income countries, they are non-existent in the vast majority of middle- and low-income nations, with the consequent inability to determine the likelihood and magnitude of the risk of infection associated with each of the susceptible factors mentioned above.“The number of health care-associated infections should be much lower in high-income countries, because we know what works and we have the means to act,” said Didier Pittet, Head of the Collaborating Centre on Patient Safety at the University of Geneva Hospitals and co-author of the Lancet study. “Low- and middle-income countries face many more challenges, but this does not mean the problem is insurmountable. Several interventions are simple and low-cost.” read more

ATeam students preview Goodman experience

More than 50 future students got a unique preview of the Goodman School of Business on Sunday, April 8 at A-Team, an event hosted by the business school in conjunction with Brock’s Spring Open House.The event is an experiential opportunity for a limited number of Goodman’s top undergraduate business and accounting applicants to experience the business school through a campus tour, guest speakers and mock lectures delivered by Herb MacKenzie, Associate Professor of Marketing, and Omar Roubi, Lecturer of Accounting.“The students we invite to A-Team are a wonderful representation of the brightest minds that are coming into university,” said Goodman School of Business Dean Andrew Gaudes.“We would be extremely proud for any of them to become part of our community as students. We know that they will contribute to our classes and community exceptionally well and will go on to help build our economy with their abilities, energy and innovativeness.”No one knows the A-Team experience better than first-year accounting student Dhvani Shah.The Niagara Falls native, who celebrated her 19th birthday Sunday, attended A-Team last year and was selected to speak at this year’s event after a full year of high co-curricular involvement and engagement.Shah joined the Goodman Accounting Students’ Association as soon as she started at Goodman and took on the role of Executive Vice President for the student club in January. She’ll be starting at DJB as a co-op student in an early work term next month.She said the A-Team event played an important role in her decision to attend the Goodman School of Business.“I knew a bit about Goodman and the structure of the accounting program, but what solidified my decision was meeting some of the people I’d actually be in school with. I felt at home with them,” she said. “I felt like they were the people I would be comfortable working with and learning alongside.”In a presentation to future students, Shah described her first-year experience as part of the Goodman community and how she successfully transitioned from high school to university life.“While I was considering different business schools, Goodman’s sense of community stood out to me. Throughout my first year here, I’ve never felt alone because there’s always help when you need it.”“I wanted to share what I learned in my first year and how I battled some of the stresses I experienced, like whether I would know how to study properly or find my way around campus, because the university experience is so different from high school,” she said, adding that there is always help available.“Rarely are you going to have to battle something on your own at Brock.” read more

Government poised to force universities to reopen

first_imgAs a strike by administrative staff at Athens University and the National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) continues into its 10th week, putting in jeopardy the studies of thousands of students, the government is considering forcing the employees back to work by issuing civil mobilization orders, Kathimerini understands.Staff at the two institutions are protesting government plans to place more than 1,300 university office workers into a labor mobility scheme, though professors at the NTUA, who had been striking in solidarity with the workers, returned to work this week in a bid to ensure the start of the semester while their peers at Athens University have decided to return to work next week. With administrative staff continuing their action, however, it appeared unlikely that the two universities could resume normal operations. There were no reports of any classes at Athens University despite the return of academics earlier this week.The union representing students affiliated with conservative New Democracy, DAP-NDFK, on Wednesday called on rectors to “to rise to the occasion, even at this late hour, to cooperate so that the universities can open.” Sources said the students might also take legal action.Their cause has attracted public support too with more than 25,000 citizens having signed an online petition – at www.anoixtessxoles.gr – in favor of the institutions reopening.Education Minister Constantinos Arvanitopoulos, for his part, accused leftist SYRIZA of instigating the strike action.“It is evident that the main opposition is unable to assume the responsibility of its institutional role,” he said, accusing the party of creating an atmosphere of “polarization and open confrontation.”Arvanitopoulos said the leftists were exploiting the “sensitive area of education” once again to create upheaval.In comments to Vima FM, the rector of Athens University, Theodosis Pelegrinis, noted that the senate had voted in favor of lessons resuming “as long as administrative staff allow access to the classrooms.” “So I’m not misunderstood, they are absolutely justified,” the rector added, apparently referring to the striking staff.The government has issued civil mobilization orders three times this year – in January against Athens metro workers, in February against seamen and in May against teachers.Source: Kathimerini Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Rape victims struggle to seek justice

first_imgProthom Alo illustration Covered in blood, a garments factory worker was brought by her friend and an auto-rickshaw driver to Mohammadpur police station in the capital on a night in March 2004. A gang-rape case was filed around 1:00am.Police seized the victim’s pyjamas, chemise, kameez and scarf, all blood-stained, as evidence of the incident.The case statement said the garments factory worker was returning home from work around 9:00pm. Two acquaintances came up, covered her mouth with their hands and dragged her to a slope on one side of the road. She was raped there by one of these men, along with two other strangers and the supervisor of a nearby building. They later left her in front of a shop.Police had detained the supervisor and accused him in the case. The two acquaintances were let off the hook as the police could not find their addresses. The other two unknown persons remained traceless.The trial has been underway at the women and children repression prevention tribunal-4 in Dhaka for 14 years. The accused supervisor has fled after being released on bail.There were 14 witnesses of the prosecution. The judge recorded the victim’s deposition in 2005. The deposition of four others, including a physician, was also recorded. But since April 2016, neither the police nor the public prosecutor (PP) could produce any witness before the court.The girl was treated at the one-stop crisis centre (OCC) of Dhaka Medical College Hospital. Later, a non-governmental organisation gave her shelter.She has been traumatised by the incident.A counsellor at the shelter centre said, for six months she didn’t talk to anyone and used to curl up in a dark corner for hours.Her family did not stand by her at that time.Senior researcher of the International Centre for Diarrhoeal Disease Research, Bangladesh (ICDDR,B) Ruchira Tabassum Naved, who has been working for around 20 years on violence against women, said, “Rape victim, women or children suffer from post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). This is something experienced by those who go to war or go through similar traumas.”It is very difficult for a victim to emerge from this situation on her own.“Filing a case or seeking justice is a huge task. The girl needs strong support to do something like that,” Ruchira said.In such cases family support is essential. But, the fear of disgracing the family, fear that no one would believe her, holds her back from seeking justice.Lawyer Maksuda Akhter, director, advocacy and lobby of central legal aid sub-committee of Bangladesh Mahila Parishad, said, “The fear is real.”She said, negotiations in salish (out-of court settlements) are sought first. Many on the prosecution side-police officers, physicians, and prosecutors-share a common tendency to put the blame on the woman if she files a case.In another incident, another garments worker filed a gang-rape case with Uttara police station in Dhaka in 2003. The statement said two previously acquainted men told her they had found a good job for her. They took her to a house and raped her there.Medical reports said she was recently subjected to forceful sexual intercourse while chemical tests said there was presence of “human semen” on her pyjamas.The investigation officer of the case submitted a charge sheet against the accused. He, however, also said he has come to learn from “open and confidential investigations” that both the accused had a love affair with the woman, who was abandoned by her husband. Both of them had maintained “objectionable” relations with her.The judge of the women and children repression prevention tribunal-2 in Dhaka released the accused person after 12 years of starting the trial as police and PP failed to produce any witness including the victim.According to Prothom Alo findings, out of 5502 cases filed over the incidents of rape, murder after rape and gang rape in the past 15 years, the accused were punished in only 3 per cent of the cases.The police stations which witnessed the highest numbers of rape cases were located in the areas where the number of poorer people and garments workers is high.Prothom Alo scrutinised 52 of the cases. Most of the cases were filed by low income persons, either day labourers or housemaids or garments workers.Proving rape is a very complex process. Negligence in investigations makes the case proceedings lengthy and these lengthy cases hardly see any results.The findings also revealed that support from the family members of the victims decline due to increasing litigation costs, complexities, and social pressure. This forces the victims to seek out-of-court settlements (shalish). Also, the suffering of the victims escalates in course of time as they do not have enough knowledge of the litigation process.They lose confidence in the judicial process. The atmosphere at the police stations and courts and medical centres are also devastating to the victims, show the findings.From police stations to hospitalLawyer Maksuda, who has been in the profession for 30 years, said in the beginning of a rape case, the victims face suspicion. She said, police ask the victims if they went there on their own or if they were paid.She added that the victims were even branded as professional sex workers.Maksuda also said, “They are suspected of being involved in a love affair or have had sex with consent.”Dhaka Metropolitan Police (DMP) commissioner Asaduzzaman Mia said a female and child-friendly desk has been opened at every metropolitan police station.“Female police run the desk. The DMP women support and investigation division has female employees, too,” he added.DMP’s additional deputy commissioner (Motijheel division) Monalisa Begum said, “We are trying to remove the adverse environment at the police stations. Women-friendly officers are also required.”“Also, supervision of investigation by senior police officers must be intensive,” she observed.The physicians examine the whole body, particularly the vaginal area for signs of forceful sexual intercourse. This requires the victim’s consent. But the whole process adds to the victim’s trauma.Male physicians mostly conduct the medical tests due to lack of female forensic experts. This also discourages most of the victims, the finding added.The so-called two-finger-test, which has recently been prohibited by the High Court, has been used to examine the vaginal canal, its laxity along with the signs of injury and the condition of the hymen.Sometimes the physicians write that the girl is habituated to sexual intercourse. According to the forensic experts, the language is unscientific and irrelevant to substantiate rape incidents.A report on a raped child reads ‘old ruptures of the hymen’. Such comments are used to brand the woman or child to be of generally immoral character.There are allegations of bribery to change forensic reports.Asked about the matter, forensic expert Sohel Mahmud said he found this allegation ‘hard to believe’.Humiliation at the courtThe public prosecutors (PPs) at the tribunals say, they cannot make the witnesses, either the victim or the plaintiff, to come before the court for testimonies. This is one of the main reasons for delay in trial and lack of conviction.Tribunal-1’s PP Md Abdul Bari said, “Judges ask court officials to make phone calls to the plaintiffs. We also contact them, but they don’t receive our phone calls.”Lawyer Maksuada said, “The victims need coordinated support along with the case proceedings, which is not available.”Prothom Alo findings also show that a victim of the much-talked-about Banani hotel rape case had to come to the court for three days before she could give her testimony. She was not heard by the court on the first two dates set for recording her statement. On one such date, the Prothom Alo reporter was present at the court. He overheard many snide remarks directed towards her, even by the court officials.Prohibiting the two-finger-test, the HC asked the judicial court to ensure that the victims are not asked humiliating questions over the rape.Defence lawyers also try to prove a victim of rape immoral since, according to section 155 (a) of Evidence Act, questions can be raised about the deposition of an immoral victim.The Supreme Court advocate Shahdeen Malik said rape offence has nothing to do with whether the girl is moral or immoral.The section actually has added to the harassment of the victim, he observes.The victim has to recount before the court how she was raped. The special law of 2000 to prevent repression of women and children dictates, if the victim wants or the court decides it appropriate, then it can hold a closed-door hearing or camera trial in rape cases.Khandaker Mahbub Hossain, an experienced lawyer in criminal cases, doubts the number of petitions ever filed over this.”The PP should ensure the closed door hearing. It is the PP who must save the plaintiff from obscene questions of the defence party. And, it is the judge’s responsibility to save the victim from being humiliated.”The security of the witness is also a crucial factor in case of the defence party’s strong political liaison and wealth.Haunted by fearThe girl was 16-17 years old in 2013. She lived with her parents in Dhaka and was training in tailoring. One of her friends took her to the river Buriganga river for a boat ride one day.Three men from another boat forcefully boarded their boat and took them to a solitary char (river island). They raped her after tying up her friend. Later, seven more men raped her in turns.The girl was bleeding and injured all over. One of the rapists took her to his home. The girl told her sister everything over phone. Her sister came and admitted her to hospital. She also filed a case with Keraniganj police station alleging gang rape.The physician got rape evidence. The detailed statement the victim presented before the magistrate was horrific.The police arrested seven perpetrators. Two of them came up with a statement to the magistrate that the girl’s friend had negotiated to hand over her to them for Tk 1,500 and the girl also had consent.In this case, 10 persons including the friend were indicted. The tribunal-1 has completed recording testimonies by four witnesses. But, neither the girl nor anyone in the family showed up in court. The lawyers said they were not attending in fear of the defendants.When the Prothom Alo correspondent went to the family’s rented quarters in Dhaka, one of the relatives of the landlord said, they left the place soon after the incident. No member of the family could be traced even at her village when the correspondent went there too.’False’ caseAminul Haque Ghani, who moved as a defence lawyer in a number of such cases, says, “Most of the rape cases currently running in the court are to harass people.”The special law of 2000 to prevent repression of women and children has given right to file a counter case. But, such examples are rare.The additional DIG of CID police Sheikh Rezaul Haider said he had seen some false cases filed due to land disputes in villages.The DMP deputy commissioner Monalisa Begum added that most of the rape cases were genuine. There were exceptions in the cases connected with ‘relationships’ and ‘rape’ she added. “These cases are complicated in character.”Relationships and promises of marriageThe Women and Children Repression Prevention Act-2000 has defined rape after the section 375 of the 1860 criminal procedure code. It states that, rape involves intercourse with someone other than one’s wife, and over the age of 16, by force or by deception.Intercourse with a girl under 16 years of age is always a rape. Though, it is different in case of a wife. If she is not under 13 the penal code does not have any scope to considering this as a rape.Many of the police officers and PPs have questions on the issue of cheating. This section is used for accusations of rape on making promises of marriage.PP Abdul Bari has seen many such cases being filed long after the crime. If the woman is an adult, she claims she was picked up, bluffed that marriage was on the cards, and then raped. As a long time elapses following the incident, no evidence is found.Bari said, “It becomes evident that they lived together willingly. The defendant then says, nothing happened by force.” So the case cannot stand and settlements take place.A mother, in a case filed in 2008, complained that a youth known to their family raped her daughter who was a garments factory worker, after promising to marry her. They rented a house in Kamrangichar of the capital. The mother filed a case after the girl had conceived.The girl’s mother and brother said the girl gave birth to a baby while the case was under trial. They settled the matter with the rapist as he agreed to marry her.As per the settlement, no one went to testify before the court. But the youth left the girl once the Tribunal-2 acquitted him from the case in 2016.Now he does not even bear the child’s maintenance costs.Reality of settlementPP Abdul Bari said, he has seen the instances of acquittal in cases even though there were evidence of gang rape of a minor girl by her “lover” and his “friends”.Most of the rape victims come from impoverished families. They settle the matter outside court. In some cases, they either testify that no such incident happened or they do not even come forward to testify.Human rights lawyers said the pressure to negotiate intensifies once the trial procedure delays. The families of victims face different kinds of pressure, to which they ultimately give in.Dhaka district and session judge court public prosecutor (PP) Khandaker Abdul Mannan said practice of such settlement should be stopped by any means.The state or prosecution should strictly oversee the matter so that rape cases are not settled outside the court. Even the court should declare the witness as hostile if s/he tries to testify in favour of the accused.Settlement benefits allInvestigating some cases, Prothom Alo finds that complainants are not the only ones seeking arbitration or settlement processes. And such arrangements are lucrative for the third parties as well.Advocate Maksuda said powerful quarters like local political leaders and elected members of union council generally lobby for the accused. Police and prosecutors remain active in favour of the accused in police stations and courts. They sometimes arrange marriage between the accused and victim. They are financially benefitted from the settlement.Tribunal-5 PP Ali Asghar claimed they remain in the darkness about the settlement.“Defendants think that if we inform the PP, s/he would intervene. And the plaintiff thinks PP would ask for money if s/he knows about the matter.”He, however, agrees sometimes three parties get involved in the settlement process.“If someone is dishonest, it is solely his personal choice,” he added.Former inspector general of police Nur Muhammad says, there is no scope of denying allegations of bribery or unlawful transactions for detouring a case. And both the parties, those who take and those who give, are responsible for this. He thinks strong supervision by senior police officials could improve the situation.Lawyer Shahdeen Malik believes the state can easily hasten the process of justice. But it does not bother meting out justice for those poor women.No one cares!A 12-year-old girl was raped in 1999. She lived with her aunt in a slum in Dhaka. One day a neighbour took her to some security guards of a building. Two guards raped her on the rooftop of the house.  Then another man raped her.Police arrested four persons following the filing of a gang rape case with Gulshan police station.Tribunal-2 began the trial in 2002. But after 17 years, all the accused got acquitted as the police and PP failed to produce any witness. By the time, one accused died.What about the girl?Nobody knows as her details are not written anywhere. Her fading fingerprinted signature at the end of the case complaint remains to be the only proof that once she was there.*The report, originally published in Prothom Alo Bangla print edition, has been rewritten in English by Shameem Reza, Toriqul Islam, Nusrat Nowrin and Galib Ashraflast_img read more

No gas price hike in present situation BERC

first_imgNo hike of gas price now: BERC. File PhotoBangladesh Energy Regulatory Commission (BERC) on Tuesday said it scrapped the decision of enhancing gas price ‘considering the overall situation’ in the country.The watchdog body announced its decision at a press conference at the commission office in the capital city, reports UNB.“In the present situation we find no reason to raise the gas price”, said BERC chairman Monwar Islam while briefing newsmen.He, however, did not directly respond to the question that there is a perception the commission this time did not hike gas price because of the advice of the prime minister Sheikh Hasina ahead of the general elections.Monwar said the distribution companies appealed for price hike calculating import of 1000 mmcfd LNG gas. But currently, LNG could only supply 300 mmcfd.Secondly, he said, NBR has given supplementary duty waiver on import of LNG.”That’s why we don’t allow raising gas price”, he said.Other commissioners were also present at the briefing.Commission member Mohammad Abdul Aziz, however, said that the government would have to provide Tk 3000 as subsidy to the distribution companies to cover the loss that they will incur due to the import of LNG.He said the commission would ask to provide Tk 1400 from short support fund.He said the commission will consider price hike when the 1000 mmcfd LNG will be supplied to the national network.Earlier, all the eight state-owned downstream entities in gas sector — six distribution companies, one transmission and an LNG marketing company — had appealed to the BERC seeking an average 75 per cent hike on the existing gas prices for different consumer groups except the household and commercial ones.The upward price revision was sought for industrial consumers, power plants, fertiliser factories, captive power plants, and CNG refuelling stations.The distribution companies are Titas Gas Transmission & Distribution Company Limited (Tatas Gas T&D), Bakhrabad Gas Distribution Company Limited (BGDCL), Jalalabad Gas Transmission and Distribution System Limited, Pashchimanchal Gas Company Limited, Karnaphuli Gas Distribution Company Limited and Sundarbans Gas Company Limited (SGCL).While participating in the hearing, the gas entities argued that as per the government decision they had to submit their respective price hike proposals because of the high import cost of LNG as it will push up their cost substantially.The Petrobangla started supplying the imported LNG to national gas network from 18 August through re-gasification by private sector-operated floating storage and re-gasification unit (FSRU).Officials said currently 300 mmcfd gas is being supplied from LNG and it will go up to 500 mmcfd in a month or two and then 1000 mmcfd gas will be flowed from next year as per a government plan.last_img read more

Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee Holds Rally In Houston To Defend The ACA

first_imgListen To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: – / 9Republicans in the U.S. Senate are feeling the heat inside their own party to pass the bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and, in Houston, a well-known democratic member of Congress organized a rally on Monday to oppose the changes the GOP wants to implement.People packed a room at Houston’s City Hall to listen to Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee.She stressed that, through the ACA, about 20 million Americans obtained health insurance and added that the Senate’s health care bill would cut almost 800 billion dollars from Medicaid, specifically 772 billion, which is a projection for the next 10 years provided by the Congressional Budget Office (CBO).Jackson Lee also highlighted other projections and noted that “by 2026, 49 million Americans under the Senate bill will be uninsured.”“I don’t think Houston and Harris County and the medical professionals in Harris County can afford to be silent,” Jackson Lee said.The Congresswoman added the changes the Republicans are pushing for could affect community clinics and people with pre-existing conditions.Jackson Lee was joined by doctors, union members and some local elected officials, and other popular voices also took to the podium, such as James Nash, pastor at Sunnyside’s Saint Paul’s Baptist Church who emphasized “this could affect every one of us in this room.”The rally ended with a march around City Hall’s reflecting pool as more than a hundred people, according to Jackson Lee’s office, urged Congress not to make cuts to Medicaid. 00:00 /01:14 X Sharelast_img read more

With tropical storm winds extending more than 400 miles (640 kilometers) from its center, Irma has caused damage across the state from trees falling on inland homes to flooding in neighborhoods on the Georgia coast.The storm has also been blamed for one death in Florida. At least 36 people died in the storm’s wake across the Caribbean.___3 p.m.Communities along the Georgia coast are seeing extensive flooding from Tropical Storm Irma.Irma’s storm surge pushed water ashore at the high tide Monday afternoon, and heavy rainfall made the flooding even worse. On Tybee Island east of Savannah, Hollard Zellers saw waist-deep water in the street as he went to fetch a kayak.About 3,000 people live on Tybee Island, which is Georgia’s largest public beach. City manager Shawn Gillen said the waters seemed to be receding quickly, but most of the island appeared to have some level of flooding and water was in many homes.Storm surge also sent floodwaters into downtown St. Marys just north of the Georgia-Florida line. St. Marys police Lt. Shannon Brock said piers and boat docks were heavily damaged and many boats sunk.___3 p.m.A massive sinkhole opened up at the edge of an apartment building in Orange County, Florida, swallowing air-conditioning units and bushes and a concrete slab. The sinkhole destabilized the building so seriously that firefighters evacuated dozens of residents amid the hurricane’s winds and pouring rain.Ronnie Ufie heard a loud bang and her 6-year-old grandson saw sparks shoot up behind the building, then their power flickered out.The fire alarm started screaming.Ernest Almonor, who lives next door to Ufie, ran outside but saw no fire and went back inside.But firefighters arrived and told them they had to leave the building. Ufie, who cares for her two young grandsons, grabbed some coloring books and crayons and headed through the rain for a neighbor’s house.But most residents, around 25 people, ended up scrambling through the storm to hunker for the night in the complex’s clubhouse.___3 p.m.Dutch King Willem-Alexander has flown to St. Maarten to see firsthand the devastation wreaked by Hurricane Irma on the tiny Caribbean territory and express gratitude to relief workers struggling to deliver aid and start the process of rebuilding shattered communities.Images broadcast by Dutch news outlets showed the king, wearing sunglasses and a khaki shirt with the sleeves rolled up, touring the badly damaged Princess Juliana International Airport . The airport, named for his grandmother, has become a vital hub for flights bringing in relief supplies as well as a gathering point for tourists and residents waiting to leave the island in the aftermath of last week’s devastating direct hit by Irma.Later Monday, the king was scheduled to visit the hospital in the capital, Philipsburg, and a school that is being used as a coordination center for distributing aid. Willem-Alexander also was expected to meet police and troops who have been struggling to maintain order on St. Maarten, where widespread looting broke out after Irma had passed.St. Maarten is part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands, but has had broad autonomy since 2010.After spending the night in St. Maarten, the king is flying Tuesday to two nearby Dutch islands, Saba and St. Eustatius, which also were hit by Irma, but suffered less damage.___2:30 p.m.State and federal environmental regulators have issued a blanket waiver for Florida electricity companies to violate clean air and water standards for the next two weeks.The Environmental Protection Agency announced the decision in a letter issued Monday as Hurricane Irma blew through the state. The agency said the so-called No Action Assurance granted through Sept. 26 will provide Florida utility generators needed flexibility to maintain and restore electricity supplies.The assurance letter will allow utilities to operate outside restrictions mandated by their permits, including potentially using dirtier fuels, running for longer hours or electively bypassing pollution-control equipment.The Associated Press reported last week that air pollution levels spiked in the Houston area after a similar enforcement waiver was granted to petrochemical facilities ahead of Hurricane Harvey.___2 p.m. In Florida, Hurricane Irma has brought dangerous floodwaters, knocked out power to millions and turned human possessions into debris in the past 24 hours. After making landfall on Sunday, the huge storm remained a Category 1 hurricane as it moved over the state’s northwest early Monday, before finally being downgraded to a tropical storm.Irma has maximum sustained winds of 60 mph, with stronger gusts. At 2 p.m. ET, Irma’s center was about 50 miles south-southeast of Albany, Ga., and 55 miles east of Tallahassee.National Hurricane CenterIrma is now a tropical storm — but it still poses severe flooding threats across Florida and into neighboring states. The storm’s predicted path is seen here in forecasters’ 11 a.m. ET release.Flash flood warnings have been issued in Jacksonville — a victim, like other eastern Florida areas, of the heaviest rains that are commonly found in hurricanes’ northeast quarter. Flood and tornado warnings have been issued for parts of coastal Georgia and South Carolina.More than 6 million electricity accounts in Florida are currently without power, state officials say. While the full extent of Irma’s damage isn’t yet known, the storm has weakened at a faster rate than expected.As the sun rose Monday, many Floridians anxiously began to assess the damage wrought by the hurricane, either inspecting their houses and neighborhoods for themselves or contacting those who stayed behind.Full radar loop showing the trek of Hurricane #IRMA through the #FL peninsula since very early Sunday morning. #flwx #NWS #NHC pic.twitter.com/IgEJZ2gexU— NWS Tampa Bay (@NWSTampaBay) September 11, 2017For those caught in Irma’s path — and wondering what to do after it passes — member station WLRN in Miami has assembled a guide to help.Irma was a hurricane for part of 12 days, having been dubbed a hurricane on Aug. 31, when it was far from land in the Atlantic Ocean. For days, it was a Category 5 storm, wreaking havoc in the Caribbean, where recovery efforts are still underway.On Monday morning, the storm brought storm surge risks as high as 4 to 6 feet above normal water levels in parts of Florida. Irma was also extending tropical-storm-force winds outward up 415 miles, the National Hurricane Center says.The perilous storm and the massive evacuation it sparked were reflected in an unusual scene in Florida early Monday, when the state’s skies were empty of airliners. A screenshot taken by journalist Sam Sweeney shows, as he wrote, “not a single airplane over the state of Florida.”7:24am EST Monday– There is not a single airplane over the state of Florida. pic.twitter.com/fWGwU5VkFP— Sam Sweeney (@SweeneyABC) September 11, 2017Irma is moving north-northwest at nearly 17 mph — a motion that’s expected to continue through Tuesday. The storm’s center is forecast to move near the Florida Peninsula’s northwestern coast and cross the eastern Florida Panhandle into southern Georgia Monday afternoon. It will then move through southwestern Georgia and eastern Alabama through the night and into Tuesday. National Hurricane CenterHurricane Jose, which had shadowed part of Irma’s route toward the Leeward Islands, has veered off north, as expected — but forecasters say the storm will follow an odd curlicue path over the next several days, putting it south of its current position and possibly threatening parts of the Bahamas this weekend.When it arrived in Florida, Irma was more than 400 miles wide; the storm remains huge. Consider that when it made landfall at the bottom of Florida’s peninsula on Sunday, Irma’s thick bands of rain were already drenching parts of northern Florida and southern Georgia.Hurricane Irma made landfall twice in Florida on Sunday, smacking into the Florida Keys as a Category 4 storm before moving over water and hitting Marco Island as a Category 3 on Florida’s southwest coast.Here are some of the stories we’re seeing in Florida:JacksonvilleThe city has already seen bad flooding, as the St. Johns River overflowed its banks — and it’s going to get worse around 2 p.m., when high tide will come, the Jacksonville Sheriff’s Office says.Historic flood levels already. Levels will continue to rise. Expect 4-6 feet above normal high tide levels. You need to be concerned. https://t.co/doN3zYLezh— Jax Sheriff’s Office (@JSOPIO) September 11, 2017The sheriff’s office writes Monday morning: “Historic flood levels already. Levels will continue to rise. Expect 4-6 feet above normal high tide levels. You need to be concerned.”Officials had been calling for people to leave areas along the St. Johns River, and to contact emergency numbers for help leaving. To those who didn’t leave, the sheriff’s office says, “If you can’t get out, you need to get to a house with a second story.”Key WestThe far-flung island lost power and phone connections, but some news began to emerge from Key West late Sunday night. Photographer Rob O’Neal relayed an account of damage, highlighted by flooding, and downed trees and utility poles. Some buildings had also lost their rooftops.“Counted 10-20 utility lines & 20 trees down in Oldtown. Downed trees & tree limbs scattered throughout KW. Counted at least 100 ppl walking around outside after eye wall passed,” O’Neal said.“Heaviest damage from Marathon to Lower Keys,” O’Neal said.Thousands of people are believed to have resisted mandatory evacuation orders to stay in the Keys. Sunday night, Monroe County Sheriff Rick Ramsay ordered a dusk-to-dawn curfew for the Keys.OnlinePeople in the hurricane’s path are using a Facebook group to check in and mark themselves as safe, with nearly 400,000 people in the group as of Monday morning, offering peace of mind to loved ones and giving a hint at this storm’s reach.Members of the group also used it to commiserate, share tips, and vent their feelings about Irma.As the sun rose Monday, they also shared some of what they’re seeing. A sample, from Davenport, in central Florida, where Benjamin McKinney wrote:“Walked around to check out my yard. The neighbor’s screen patio was torn off and is laying in the street. The stop sign on the corner is missing. The neighbor behind us fence is down. We’re missing some pieces from our roof overhang. Our boughanvilla bush was uprooted and pulled our fence out. Nothing too crazy.”TampaAs the storm approached, it sucked water out of Tamp Bay and other areas, prompting curious residents to head out onto the muddy ground — and, in at least are, to rescue stranded manatees.The hurricane center warned on Sunday, “Don’t be fooled by low water conditions on the FL W coast ahead of Irma, water will rapidly surge back when the winds change direction.”Around midday on Monday, the National Weather Service office in Tampa extended flood warnings for at least 10 rivers, saying they’re close to flood levels — and will rise further.“Significant river flooding will continue over the next several days as heavy rainfall from Hurricane Irma drains into West Central Florida rivers,” the agency says.OrlandoFrom member station WMFE:“Florida Highway Patrol said they’re seeing too many people out ‘sightseeing’ and not obeying the curfew. FHP reports trees are down and there’s standing water from the exit ramps at 528 to 520. Those ramps have been closed in both directions… “FHP says traffic’s starting to build up on 95 and the Turnpike southbound. They expect traffic to pick up as the day goes on and people want to go home and check out their property. Officials say people can’t enter the Keys, so evacuees need to stay put.”MiamiThe city is focusing on clearing roads of debris trees, and sand — in some areas, parts of the beach have been pushed over roadways. Mayor Tomás Regalado said 72 percent of the city of Miami is currently without power, NPR’s Hansi Lo Wang reports. Police report at least 26 looting incidents, with 13 arrests made.“At one time, Miami was dead in the center of the track, and could have been hit very hard,” NPR’s Jon Hamiton says on Morning Edition. But today, Jon says, much of the city looks “surprisingly normal” — at least out toward the airport.“I have seen a whole lot of power trucks going by on the freeway out here,” Jon adds. “There’s still water on the ground in places, they’re picking up lots of palm fronds, but the city looks like it’s getting back in business.”Miami International Airport saw wind gusts near 100 mph and “sustained significant water damage throughout,” the airport director, Emilio Gonzalez, said via Twitter. The facility is closed to passenger flights at least through Monday.RT StevePetyerak: #Irma evacuees emptying out GermainArena in Estero, FL pic.twitter.com/V3WZdugcMR— Zachary’s Weather (@ZacharysWeather) September 11, 20179:45 a.m.Actress Kristen Bell says she’s “singing in a hurricane” while riding out Irma in Florida.The “Frozen” star is in Orlando filming a movie and staying at a hotel at the Walt Disney World resort. She stopped by an Orlando middle school that was serving as a shelter and belted out songs from “Frozen.”Back at the hotel, Bell posted pictures on Instagram of her singing with one guest and dining with a group of seniors.Bell also helped out the parents of “Frozen” co-star Josh Gad by securing them a room at the hotel.Bell tells Sacramento, California, station KMAX-TV — where her father is news director — that the experience is her version of one of her favorite movies, “Singin’ in the Rain.”___9:30 a.m.People are being rescued from flooded homes Monday morning south of Jacksonville, Florida, as Tropical Storm Irma pounds the state with rain and wind.John Ward, the emergency operations manager of Clay County, says crews have pulled 46 people from flooded homes by early Monday and an undetermined number are still stranded as the area’s creeks and ponds are getting record flooding.Ward says between 400 and 500 homes received severe flood damage but there have been no serious injuries or deaths.Irma weakened to a tropical storm Monday morning, a day after hitting the state as a powerful Category 4 hurricane.WATCH: Police in Lakeland, Florida, show high winds and rain in the city right now as the eye of Hurricane #Irma moves through the area. pic.twitter.com/6PrNyDS3lN— NBC Nightly News (@NBCNightlyNews) September 11, 2017___9:05 a.m.An Atlanta airport official says there’ve been around 800 cancellations due to the threat of Irma, which weakened to a tropical storm Monday morning.Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport spokesman Andrew Gobeil says the airport will still be operational Monday and will monitor storm conditions.Gobeil says the airport created an overflow parking plan to allow planes unable to land in areas such as Florida to park at the airport in Atlanta.Also in Atlanta, the city’s transit system has suspended all bus and rail service ahead of the weather conditions caused by Irma.Metropolitan Atlanta Rapid Transit Authority spokesman Erik Burton says both systems will be closed for Monday. He says officials will continue to coordinate with state and local officials along with emergency personnel to determine MARTA’s service schedule for Tuesday.___9:05 a.m.Much of central Florida, including Orlando, suffered significant damage as Irma blew through Sunday night and into Monday morning.Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs said Monday morning that there’s been widespread damage and significant power loss throughout the area.Jacobs said approximately 300,000 residents in Orlando are without power. She also said 60 percent of the fire stations are operating on backup generators and dispatchers received 1,381 calls between Sunday at midnight and 5:45 a.m. Monday morning.Residents are being asked to minimize usage such as flushing toilets, bathing, along with washing dishes and laundry.___8:30 a.m.Irma is causing record-setting flooding in Jacksonville, Florida, as it moves over the state Monday on its way to southern Georgia.The National Weather Service in Jacksonville says storm surge flooding exceeds the record set in 1965 during Hurricane Dora.The city on Florida’s northeastern Atlantic coast remains under a flash flood warning until 12:45 p.m. Monday.Jacksonville Sheriff’s officials warned residents not to drive through standing water, adding that in addition to flooding, there are trees and power lines down across the area.Irma weakened to a tropical storm Monday morning, a day after hitting the state as a Category 4 hurricane.___8:30 a.m.Florida Gov. Rick Scott says there’s damage across the state caused by Hurricane Irma and it’s still too dangerous for residents to go outside or return from evacuation.Scott said Monday on Fox News that he’s concerned about flooding now unfolding in Jacksonville and the amount of damage in the Florida Keys. The governor will be flying out of Mobile, Alabama, on a U.S. Coast Guard plane down to the Keys where he plans to inspect the extent of the damage there.Local officials in the Keys on Sunday warned of a humanitarian crisis due to Irma’s winds and storm surge.Scott asked Floridians to be patient and warned that roads are impassable and that there are downed power lines.___8:30 a.m.Two children evacuated from Florida as Hurricane Irma approached have been killed in separate car crashes in Georgia.News outlets report Woodstock police say 3-month-old Riley Hunt of Port St. Lucie, Florida, was struck by an SUV driven by a 17-year-old girl Saturday night and was later pronounced dead. DeKalb County police say an 11-year-old boy who was also traveling from Florida to Georgia was hit and killed by a car early Monday in Stone Mountain.The identity of the boy hasn’t been released, and the cause of the crash is currently unknown.The Cherokee County Sheriff’s Office says Hunt’s mother, 28-year-old Kaitlyn Hunt, and 61-year-old Kathy Deming were also hit and are listed in critical condition. The incident remains under investigation. No charges had been filed.___8 a.m.Irma has weakened to a tropical storm as it moves over Florida toward southern Georgia.The storm’s maximum sustained winds decreased Monday morning to near 70 mph (110 kph). The U.S. National Hurricane Center says it’s expected to weaken to a tropical depression by Tuesday afternoon.Irma is centered about 105 miles (170 kilometers) north-northwest of Tampa, Florida, and is moving north-northwest near 18 mph (30 kph).Irma hit southern Florida on Sunday as a Category 4 hurricane, bringing roof-ripping winds, gushing floodwaters and widespread power outages.___7:45 a.m.The National Guard and local fire rescue teams evacuated more than 120 flooding homes in Orange County, just outside Orlando, as Hurricane Irma moves over Florida.Trees and power lines were down across town and floods cut off roads to a neighborhood.As the sun rose in Orlando, many tried to go outside to survey the damage, but authorities warn that conditions remain dangerous and ask that people to abide by the curfew that lasts throughout most of the day.___7:45 a.m.Winds and rain from Hurricane Irma have moved into South Carolina and officials are warning residents to be very careful throughout the day.A hurricane watch is in effect Monday from Edisto Beach into Florida. A storm surge warning and a tropical storm warning are in effect from near Georgetown into Florida.A flash flood warning is in effect along the southern coast of South Carolina, where more than 40,000 were ordered to evacuate barrier islands.The storm surge could reach 6 feet (2 meters), especially from late morning to mid-afternoon. Up to 6 inches (15 centimeters) of rain is also possible.Wind gusts of up to 60 mph (97 kph) are expected along the South Carolina coast. Forecasters say tornadoes are also possible.South Carolina Electric & Gas reported more than 13,000 customers without service Monday morning.___7:45 a.m.The European Union says it has released 2 million euros ($2.4 million) to help the Caribbean islands hit hardest by Hurricane Irma.EU’s humanitarian aid commissioner, Christos Stylianides, announced the assistance Monday, saying the money will go to key sectors such as health, water and sanitation and waste management.The EU has already been involved in the emergency relief effort, and Stylianides said the bloc stands ready to provide longer-term assistance as well. He called it “our moral duty to help those in need whose lives and homes are being destroyed or severely threatened.”___7:10 a.m.Nearly 4.5 million homes and businesses across Florida have lost power as Hurricane Irma moves over the state.And utility officials say it will take weeks to restore electricity to everyone. Farther north, more than 100,000 are in the dark in Georgia.Much of eastern Alabama and coastal South Carolina are under tropical storm warnings as Irma pummels Florida, weakening on its march northward.The National Hurricane Center predicts the storm will cross Monday into southwest Georgia, where a hurricane warning was in effect for a large rural area including the cities of Albany and Valdosta.Rain already is falling in parts of the state, including metro Atlanta, early Monday.___7 a.m.Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn says that while the city hasn’t escaped Hurricane Irma’s wrath, the situation isn’t as bad as they had feared.Speaking Monday morning on MSNBC, Buckhorn said “What we thought was going to be a punch in the face was a glancing blow.”Buckhorn did say there are a lot of downed power lines and debris.He said Tampa’s officials have vehicles positioned “to be sure that when that surge comes in we can keep people out of the streets.”He said he expected power to be out for some sections of Tampa for at least a couple more days.Hurricane Irma is getting weaker as it moves over the western Florida peninsula after hitting the state Sunday as a Category 4 storm.___6:45 a.m.Police in Miami are investigating reports of people looting stores as Hurricane Irma hit the state.On Sunday night, Miami police took two people into custody and detained two others.Deputy Police Chief Luis Cabrera told the Miami Herald the officers went to the Shops at Midtown on Sunday afternoon as the winds of Hurricane Irma were at their strongest in South Florida. Cabrera says a group in a white truck hit multiple locations. Police have also received additional reports of looting in the city.Police had issued a curfew Saturday night, partly to ward off looters by giving officers probable cause to stop anyone for being on the street during the storm.Cabrera didn’t have specific details about the looting incidents.___6:45 a.m.The British government is defending its response to Hurricane Irma amid claims it has been slow to help its overseas territories devastated by the storm.The British Virgin Islands, Anguilla and the Turks and Caicos islands were all pummeled by the hurricane last week, leaving thousands without electricity or shelter.Opposition politicians have compared Britain’s response unfavorably to that of France, which has sent more than 1,000 troops, police and emergency workers to St. Martin and St. Barts.Britain has dispatched a navy ship and nearly 500 troops, including medics and engineers.Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson said Monday that Britain had responded strongly to an “unprecedented catastrophe.” He says the government will soon increase the 32 million pounds ($42 million) it’s pledged to the relief effort.___6:30 a.m.Police in Lakeland, Florida, say a family with small children was rescued from a car that was submerged in water as Hurricane Irma crossed the area.Lakeland police said in a Facebook post that officers rescued the family of four early Monday as water reached the children’s car seats. No one was injured and police were able to get the family back to their home.“When you become a police officer you hope to make a difference in the lives of others,” the Facebook post said. “Tonight, there is no doubt these officers made a difference.”Lakeland is between Tampa and Orlando, off of Interstate 4.Hurricane Irma is getting weaker as it moves over the western Florida peninsula after hitting the state Sunday as a Category 4 storm.___6:30 a.m.A Florida sheriff’s sergeant and a paramedic were trapped in a sheriff’s vehicle when a live power pole fell on the cruiser as they were returning from dropping off an elderly patient as Hurricane Irma moved over the state.Polk County spokesman Kevin Watler said in a news release that Sgt.

Investors are Pouring Cash Into AI Startups Focused on Health Care

first_img Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. A recent report from CB Insights found that healthcare Artificial Intelligence startups have raised $4.3 billion across 576 funding rounds in the last five years – more than any other sector. Investment flowing into building AI that works with people to tackle healthcare issues will continue globally. Meanwhile, finding sustainable answers to tragic conditions like Alzheimer’s Disease will require accurately kept health records to advance progress — and take the willing participation of people whose lives are fatally impacted by the disease. The party ultimately responsible for finding the answer to Alzheimer’s might not be human — or at least, the effort to rid the world of the disease may not be fully a human one.Artificial Intelligence presents the medical field with new opportunities to use learnings from existing and newly created data sets to solve complex human issues over the next few years. The technology’s complementary utility for health science and medical research offers new opportunities to unearth minuscule clues from individual patient histories that lead to global breakthroughs. AI has the potential to serve as a natural partner for medical researchers and professionals who spend careers combing through records to uncover trends and anomalies.Related: AI Is Transforming Healthcare as We Know It. Here’s a Look at the Future — and the Opportunities for Entrepreneurs.AI helps people find medical answers.As an industry, health science is beginning to realize the full benefits of using precision medicine to treat disease. Early success stories include making progress in cancer detection and uncovering potential health indicators from medical histories and DNA analysis. The underlying idea of using AI for health science, in particular, is to look at people’s specific genetic or molecular profiles and determine what personalized treatment works best on a case-by-case basis.In the coming years, successfully advancing precision health science will depend on collecting and storing data representing diverse patient populations. It will also rely on the health science sector’s ability to develop sophisticated AI and machine learning algorithms that mine massive amounts of data to answer very specific healthcare questions. Questions like: how do we find the indicators hidden in countless health records? Which genetic variants matter? Why does one disease impact a patient and not someone with a similar genetic makeup? AI can serve as as a means to helping the health science sector answer some of these questions, analyze specific factors with precision and bring clarity to patients earlier in the diagnosis discovery process.Related: Wonders Artificial Intelligence is Doing For The Healthcare SectorAI’s real world impact across health sectors.AI’s real world impact on health science has already materialized in the form of new pharmaceutical combinations, more promising hypotheses, improved medical diagnostics, targeted risk factor analysis and reporting that leads to more accuracy in personalized medicine. AI can fully absorb, contextualize and analyze critical healthcare information in the time it takes a human counterpart to read through a few records. The technology is built to mobilize and manage large data sets autonomously. Meanwhile, human counterparts can focus on communicating the benefits of AI findings, proactively using them to address individual medical concerns and offer more personalized patient care.AI can integrate data from multiple sources and determine relevance to specific cases swifter than humans. The technology can analyze data in real-time and produce actionable insights that would take several hours — or years in some cases — for people to complete. When built responsibly using objective data sets and lab-tested technology, AI does not have preconceived notions about the medical records, DNA and RNA analysis and general information it sorts through, eliminating potential biases and erroneous conclusions.AI’s health science success hinges on the availability of human-curated training data sets that allow for performance and bias testing prior to AI entering the market. The opportunity to connect AI and countless data sets presents the greatest opportunity for medical professionals looking toward technology for answers. In practice, AI’s core ability to automate data analysis frees up medical research people to focus on the end result, apply findings to real world medical or pharmaceutical trials, and, ultimately, adapt individual healthcare plans to incorporate new methods.Related: How AI is Making the Impossible Possible in Healthcare SectorLooking ahead to an uncertain future.The biggest challenge for health practitioners turning to AI in 2019 will remain the availability of curated data sets needed to train algorithm-driven technologies destined for disease detection and other crucial medical work. AI must be trustworthy enough to make accurate predictive assessments that dramatically impact patient care and health results in the real world. The process of preparing AI for health will become easier in the near future as the technology advances, regular people become more familiar with AI and its real world applications for disease prevention prove successful.After all, disease prevention is the holy grail.

UN No evidence of new food price crisis

Enjoy a cold one for International Beer Day Patients with chronic pain give advice `’This is reassuring,” said Jose Graziano da Silva, director-general of the Rome-based U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization. `’Although we should remain vigilant, current prices do not justify talk of a world food crisis.”The agency said that overall prices in August remained flat, compared to July’s index, when prices spiked by 6 percent after three months of decline, driven by a jump in grain and sugar prices and reflecting droughts that affected corn and wheat crops.Whether prices will rise in the rest of the year is unclear, FAO official David Hallam told reporters.While meat and dairy prices did rise in August, sugar prices fell sharply. The agency’s Cereal Price Index averaged the same as in July, with some increases in wheat and rice offsetting a slight weakening in maize, the agency said.`’Deteriorating crop prospects for maize in the United States and wheat in the Russian Federation initially underpinned export quotations, but prices eased towards the end of the month following heavily rains in areas hardest hit by drought in the United States,” FAO said. Also helping to stabilize prices was Russia’s announcement that it would not impose export restrictions, the U.N. agency said.

Another food crisis, in 2010-2011, also caused hardships for poorer consumers, especially in countries heavily dependent on food imports.last_img

US industrial output falls for 5th month on lower drilling

first_img Comments   Share   New Year’s resolution: don’t spend another year in a kitchen you don’t like Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Manufacturing output was unchanged after rising 0.3 percent in March. Utility production fell 1.3 percent, as Americans used less heat but haven’t yet cranked up the air conditioning.The cutbacks by energy companies likely contributed to a drop in the production of industrial machinery, which fell 0.9 percent, its second straight decline. The strong dollar also likely held back machinery sales, because it makes goods more expensive overseas. Companies like Caterpillar are exporting fewer trucks, bulldozers and other industrial machines.The data “reflects the continued headwinds the U.S. manufacturing sector faces from a strong dollar, lower oil prices and softness in international demand,” Jesse Hurwitz, an economist at Barclays, said.Auto production rose 1.3 percent, a solid increase but down from March’s 4.3 percent gain.A separate report Friday showed that U.S. manufacturers are slowly adjusting to the challenges of a strong dollar and low oil prices.The Federal Reserve Bank of New York said that its Empire State manufacturing index rose to a plus 3.09 reading in May, up from a negative 1.19 reading in April. The index was lifted by the first increase in new orders in four months. Arizona families, Arizona farms: providing the local community with responsibly produced dairy Milstead says best way to stop wrong-way incidents is driving sober The Empire State index provides an early look at U.S. manufacturing each month, and May’s reading is a sign that manufacturing could be starting to recover.In the first three months of the year, industrial production fell at a 0.7 percent annual rate, the worst quarterly showing since the second quarter of 2009 when the economy was mired in recession. Manufacturing output also fell 1 percent in the first quarter.In addition to less drilling by energy firms, the sharp fall in new wells has led to weaker demand for steel pipe and other manufactured goods such as rail cars and transport oil.Those factors contributed to a very weak showing for the economy in the first three months of the year, when most analysts expect that it contracted by as much as 1 percent at an annual rate.Still, economists think manufacturing should recover later this year once the impact of oil and gas cutbacks have faded. The dollar’s value has leveled off, so that drag should also fade. Yet few analysts see manufacturing providing much of a boost to the economy this year.Copyright © The Associated Press.

Don Shooter shows health improvement WASHINGTON (AP) — A plunge in energy-related drilling and sluggish manufacturing sent U.S. industrial output down for a fifth straight month in April.Overall industrial production slid 0.3 percent in April after a drop of the same size in March, the Federal Reserve said Friday. The figures suggest that weakness in manufacturing and mining is weighing heavily on the economy.Oil and gas well drilling activity plunged 14.5 percent last month, its fourth straight double-digit decline. Last year’s steep decline in oil prices, from about $110 a barrel to $50 in January, has forced energy firms to rapidly scale back operations. Top Stories Sponsored Stories last_img read more
