Clark College grad Sam Elliott, The Hero

first_imgSam Elliott has a voice like a bear — big and strong, serious and smooth.You may have heard him intone, “Only you can prevent forest fires,” while the mouth of Smokey Bear moves on TV. Or, you may have caught Elliott saying, “Support the campaign for Clark College, ensuring a bright future,” over appealing images of our local community college. Those Clark College Foundation spots ran in 2013.Hard to say whether Elliott’s voice was quite so seductive, five-plus decades ago, when you could have caught him onstage at Clark. The California boy was a teen when he moved with his parents to Northeast Portland, graduated from David Douglas High School and, “after jumping around for a while,” he said, eventually landed at Clark.“I found it a great school. My recollections are pretty keen. I just loved it,” Elliott said during a telephone interview.Elliott got a lot of acting encouragement at Clark and appeared in various plays, including the classic musical “Guys and Dolls.” His role was only a supporting one — Big Jule, the fearsome but finally humbled Chicago gangster — but that was perfectly OK with him.“I was happy to do whatever. The drama department there was great,” Elliott said. “But I knew I wanted to be a film actor. I grew up in Sacramento, and I’d seen too many movies, too many movie theaters. I didn’t want to do stage work. I wanted the movies.”He got his wish. Within four years of his 1965 graduation from Clark, Elliott was onscreen in the hit feature film “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” Of course his role, “Card Player No. 2,” was small — but it was only the beginning of an illustrious career.last_img read more

Please ensure that you have all necessary resources available, including but not limited to food, water and medication, shutters and so forth. Remove all debris, and ensure that your property is free from any potential flying objects. Secure important documents and keep important numbers readily available. I once again appeal to you to prepare, because preparing is not an option, it is a must and it is the only thing we can do to reduce the impact of a disaster.”A national address from his desk, using technology to remind the nation that the Disaster Management arm would prefer it if we got ready as readiness reduces risk. The National Hurricane Center has forecast a below normal season with six to 11 named storms predicted. Maybe three to six will become hurricane force and two could evolve to major hurricanes. Already the Atlantic Basin has recorded – pre-season – Tropical Storm Ana; currently the East-Pacific Basin is experiencing Tropical Storm Andres. Despite this forecast, residents do well to remember that it only takes one storm to wreak havoc; last year Tropical Storm Cristobal and his rains in late August shut the country down for two days, caused severe flooding, cut off communities in North and Middle Caicos, waterlogged homes, exposed a series of massive sink holes and led to a fierce spike in Dengue Fever and Chikungunya cases.

DC on Verge of Taking Possession of Walter Reed Property

DC on Verge of Taking Possession of Walter Reed Property

first_imgThe District of Columbia is slated to take ownership of 66 acres of the former Walter Reed Army Medical Center by the end of the month, marking a critical milestone in the effort to redevelop the property into a mix of residential, office and retail space over the coming decades.A 10-day review of the transfer agreement by the D.C. Council ends July 10. If no action is taken to stop the purchase, it will be considered approved without a vote, reported the Washington Business Journal.The District will pay the Army $22.5 million and obtain the parcel through an economic development conveyance, under an agreement announced last November. The first payment of $10 million will be due at closing and will come from the District’s coffers as well as the city’s master development team. The balance will be due one year later. The deal does not include any revenue sharing.After closing, the city will lease the site to its master developers — a joint venture of Hines Interests LP, Urban Atlantic and Triden Development Group. Revenue from eight years of lease payments will offset the site’s acquisition cost.The reuse plan for the project, the Parks at Walter Reed, calls for 2,100 housing units (432 affordable), 250,000 square feet of retail anchored by a large-format supermarket, 14 acres of open space, a Hyatt hotel and conference center, space for arts organizations, an ambulatory care clinic from Howard University, and an innovation core anchored by George Washington University and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.The Army already has handed over about 33 acres of the 110-acre campus to the State Department for the development of a foreign missions center, according to the story. Much of the remaining property will be conveyed to Children’s National Medical Center. Dan Cohen AUTHORlast_img read more

Steve Case Invests 40 Million in Bigcommerce a Startup Helping Other Startups

first_imgJuly 25, 2013 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals AOL co-founder and entrepreneur Steve Case is adding another hat to his already crowded head: board member of Austin, Texas-based ecommerce website Bigcommerce. Case’s investment firm Revolution Growth announced this morning that it invested $40 million in the company, which plans to use the money to promote its brand and expand its international offerings.Investing in ecommerce startups is nothing new for Case. His previous ventures include the social shopping deal site LivingSocial and the “Wheels when you want them” membership-based car rental company Zipcar.”Even though ecommerce has already grown a lot, we still have a long way to go,” Case told Reuters. “Bigcommerce has the potential to level the playing field for small businesses, giving them the same ecommerce tools that big guys like Amazon already have.”Related: Steve Case on Startups That Attract His Attention and What Kills a Deal (Video)Bigcommerce offers a highly customizable, easy-to-use platform for businesses to create online stores, including services such as marketing, social media integration and of sales. Even those business owners who might be less tech-savvy can find it easy to navigate the polished set-up process. The monthly fee for the service ranges from $24.95 to $299.95 for the feature-packed Diamond level. The differences between service levels lie in the number of products you can have in your store, the amount of storage and how many individual staff logins you have available.The funding from Revolution Growth is also expected to help Bigcommerce grow access new customers by arranging strategic partnerships with existing payments and software companies. Bigcommerce already has more than 35,000 small- and medium-size companies as customers.Case, a Hawaii native, used a surfing metaphor to explain Revolution Growth’s investment strategy to PeHUB.com. The “wave theory,” he said, holds that “sometimes, the waves are there” and sometimes, when all the factors just aren’t quite right, you have to wait for the next one.”We’re patient,” Case said. “We know waiting for that right wave makes sense.”Related: Steve Case on What Makes a Successful Entrepreneur (Video) 2 min read Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.

Australian Team Finds New Method for Producing PET Radiotracers in Higher Radiochemical

Australian Team Finds New Method for Producing PET Radiotracers in Higher Radiochemical

first_img News | PET-CT | June 19, 2019 United Imaging Announces First U.S. Clinical Install of uMI 550 Digital PET/CT United Imaging announced the first U.S. clinical installation of the uMI 550 Digital positron emission tomography/… read more April 28, 2017 — Researchers at the Australian Nuclear Science and Technology Organisation (ANSTO) have led the development of a new method for producing positron emission tomography (PET) radiotracers. The discovery utilizes the transition metal rhenium to promote fluorine-18 radiolabelling under aqueous, low temperature conditions. The method circumvents the need for dry conditions, and purification steps, which saves time and gives PET radiotracers in very high yields. Fluorine-18, the most commonly used radioisotope in PET imaging, must be attached to vectors in order to diagnose disease. The best example is where fluorine-18 is attached to glucose in order to make [18F]FDG for cancer imaging.This new method has the potential to improve production of PET radiotracers like FDG, but also facilitate development of new radiotracers by allowing previously challenging vectors to be radiolabelled in high yields under mild conditions.  Because a radiotracer decays, radio-synthesis needs to be performed quickly, efficiently and in high yield, so there is enough radiotracer to scan all patients at a PET medical center.  “Improving methods for incorporation of fluorine-18 has been a longstanding challenge for the radiotracer community. This research is the first example of a rhenium promoted radio-fluorination, an unprecedented, exciting discovery in the radiochemistry field,” said senior author Benjamin Fraser, M.D., Radiotracer Method and Organic Chemistry Task leader at ANSTO.Fraser explained that a rhenium complex was selected because of its potential for development as a dual modality PET/optical imaging agent. PET allows diagnosis of tumor location and then optical luminescence guides surgical removal of the tumor.“The choice of rhenium proved fortuitous for the incorporation of F-18 and was good example of ‘chance favoring the prepared mind’ as the result was not predicted but very significant,” said Fraser.“It’s also important that the reaction can be done in water, as this simplifies subsequent formulation of the radiotracer in saline for injection into a patient in a clinical setting,” he added.The study involved the use of microfluidic technologies that had several advantages for the investigation. Giancarlo Pascali, M.D., co-senior investigator on the project who is based at the Camperdown cyclotron facility, supervised the radiochemistry work under microfluidic radiolabelling conditions.“Microfluidic technologies allowed us to optimize all the reaction parameters very quickly, such as temperature, time, solvent and additives. We can optimize a given radiolabelling reaction in only three days, which under normal conditions would take one month to complete.Another benefit of microfluidics is that we work with only very small amounts of radioactivity,” said Fraser.Fraser points out that at this stage the radiotracer has not been tested for use with PET. “The next step is working on conjugating the tracer to new biological vectors, but also applying the new rhenium method to established radiotracers. We can then also investigate its potential use as a dual modality probe,” he said.A large team of researchers from the Human Health and the Radioisotopes and Radiotracers platform at ANSTO, Curtin University, The University of Sydney, Monash University and Western Sydney University contributed to the study, which has just been published in Chemistry – A European Journal.Ph.D. student Mitchell Klenner, who received an Australian Institute of Nuclear Science and Engineering (AINSE) post graduate scholarship, has been invited to present the work at The International Symposium on Radiopharmaceutical Sciences in May 2017.Klenner will receive the prestigious Wiley Award at the conference in recognition of the impact of the work. Recently he also presented the work at Innovations and Radiation Applications 2017 in Wollongong and received the industry-sponsored award for best student presentation.Fraser said, “It is fantastic to see Mitchell get due recognition for his diligent, hard work. His passion and enthusiasm for research at ANSTO is inspiring.”For more information: www.onlinelibrary.wiley.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 16, 2019 NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes Completes Construction on Beloit, Wis.

The Libra Coin Risks Associated with Stateless Money

The Libra Coin Risks Associated with Stateless Money

first_imgBy: Samson Williams, Board Member, Crowdfunding Professionals Association (CfPA) The purpose of this article is two-fold:— In follow up to the CfPA’s memo on Acknowledging Risk of Stablecoins in April 2019, the CfPA continues to urge Congress and our regulators to gain a greater understanding of the realities of so-called stablecoins, the financial and economic risks stablecoins may create, and to determine to what extent multi-national, global corporations have the legal standing to create money out of thin code.— Highlighting the potential risk of global corporations “printing” their own money and how that capacity may negatively impact not only the USD but also potentially undermine US global economic policy and the funding of startups and entrepreneurial businesses domestically.Like any technology, blockchain can and may be used to improve a variety of operational, identity, security and technology challenges that the future of digital banking, businesses and society face. Blockchain technology is also poised to create new and increasingly clever methods and economies for value, commodities, assets, securities and a slew of yet-to-be-discovered financial instruments and products.However, no leap in technology and finance is ever made without risk. The risks are even more emphasized when dealing with rules that are built for previous-gen technologies.  As policymakers and stewards of the current and future digital economy and ecosystem, we have an obligation to our constituents and the global banking and finance community to guide the growth and adoption of emerging Fintech in a safe and sound manner.To that end, three areas that have the potential for regulatory and compliance issues arise from Facebook’s Libra Coin:What is the Libra Coin? Based on the concept of a “stablecoin,” Facebook proposes to launch a “global currency.” However, with no standard definition or regulatory framework for defining what a “stablecoin” is, many questions arise, such as:— What risks are associated with stablecoins?— Who will bear those risks?— What happens in the event that Facebook’s stablecoin turns out to suffer the same volatility of traditional fiat currencies?— Most importantly, is Facebook’s Libra Coin a currency…just because Facebook says so?— How does Libra coin intend to generate returns on the reserves?— What are some of the tax implications that Libra will face?Understanding the nature of so-called stablecoins and the associated risks should be a priority for regulators. In addition to a clear definition of stablecoins and what “qualifies” to be classified as a stablecoin, consumers also need to understand the implications of using stablecoins and the Libra Coin.— Is the Libra Coin a commodity?— Is it an asset?— Is the Libra Coin property, on par with other cryptocurrencies such as Bitcoin?— How is the Libra Coin treated from a tax perspective?— Will Libra Coins be FDIC insurable?We urge regulators and lawmakers to take the time to understand the potential implications if even a small percentage of the three billion Facebook users, adopt Libra Coin as a currency.What is the Libra Reserve? According to Facebook’s Libra White Paper, the Libra Reserve is a Swiss-based entity who will issue the Libra Coin. This entity and concept creates a very simple question,— “Does a foreign-based corporation have the standing to create its own sovereign currency?”This is a simple question which will have serious ramifications as the creation and use of digital currencies and cryptocurrencies created by stateless, multinational corporations increase in frequency and use. Today, it is Facebook. Tomorrow, could it be Huawei?Facebook’s take on Crowdfunding and Access to Capital.  We believe that many more people should have access to financial services and to cheap capital. (Page 2 of Libra White Paper). How will the Libra Coin and a global audience impact equity and debt crowdfunding in the USA? This is to be seen. However, in Facebook’s own words, Know Your Customer checks will not be required to hold Libra Coin.Again, we encourage further exploration and discovery to allow regulators, industry partners and consumers to better understand the full potential impact of allowing a private corporation to mint money, under its own direction. We specifically encourage the U.S. Securities & Exchange Commission, as well as the Commodity Futures Trading Commission to take an active leadership role in understanding the full implications of the Libra Coin on regulated crowdfunding in the USA and globally.ConclusionFacebook is pushing the envelope of stateless money, blockchain technology and emerging financial instruments. As Facebook and other private organizations seek to innovate, we implore regulators and lawmakers to enable innovation in as safe, sound and responsible manner as possible.To do this, consumers, industry stakeholders and regulators must have the fundamental questions posed above answered. Unlike Pandora’s box, regulators have the means of intervening for the benefit of the global community and getting these fundamental questions answered before it’s too late. We encourage you to do so now and without delay.Special thanks to the following individuals for providing their expertise and insights into drafting this memo:Maureen Murat, Esq., Of Counsel, Cogent Law Group, mmurat@cogentlaw.coOlta Andoni, Esq., Head of Blockchain Practice at Ziliak Law, LLC, Oandoni@ziliak.comSamson Williams, Adjunct Professor, UNH School of Law, samson.williams@law.unh.eduAnne (Adamson) Veerpalu, Estonia Legal Hackers, anne@veerpalu.eeCrowdfunding Professionals Association (CfPA.org)last_img read more

Remember how Michigan State beat Michigan A Florida HS won a

Remember how Michigan State beat Michigan A Florida HS won a

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Sponsored By Connatix Except it didn’t quite work out as planned.After taking the first knee, Hillel’s quarterback tossed the ball in the air in celebration, drawing a delay of game penalty – and more importantly stopping the clock – as the refs had to chase the ball down. On second and third down, Palmer Trinity was able to use their two remaining timeouts to force the punt with 15 seconds left on the clock. Palmer Trinity was down 12-15 at the time.That’s where things got interesting.What ensued was almost a direct replica of how Michigan State beat Michigan a few weeks ago at the Big House. The similarities are absolutely uncanny.Watching the snap bounce around in the backfield is almost painful to watch, then you see a Palmer Trinity player scoops it up and score to get the win 18-15.“Oh my God. I was on the sideline just praying,” Palmer Trinity head coach Rudy Fernandez told the Miami Herald. “We needed a miracle, and we got one. All season long we’ve preached play to the last whistle, and [Thursday] it paid off. Something like this is huge for our program. We lost 13 players to injury and kept fighting through it. We had 11 freshmen out on that field, and I don’t know how many varsity football teams can say that.”Read more about how the play unfolded here.(H/T MaxPreps for the video) If you were a fan of the endings of the Michigan State vs. Michigan and Georgia Tech vs. Florida games the past few weeks, you’re going to love this one from a high school championship game down in Florida.It all went down last Thursday in a Florida Independent Football Conference title game at Palmer Trinity (FL) high’s Brockway Field against Scheck Hillel HS (FL). The finish has already earned the nickname “The Miracle at Brockway”.To get a full grasp of the situation, allow me to set the scene. Following an interception with 38 seconds left, Hillel had possession of the ball and since Palmer Trinity only had two timeouts, they planned to kneel it, make Palmer use the timeouts, and head home with the win.last_img read more

The story focuses on Camp Pathfinder in Algonquin Park, where boys from the Syrian and Iraqi families she follows were able to attend thanks to their sponsors.“It was the first time any of them had been away from home and they learned to paddle canoes, go tripping, go on portages, swim, integrate themselves with their Americans and Canadians,” Kopple said.“It’s funny at times — and tragic at times.”Kopple often fixes her lens on stories of strength through adversity.Her first Oscar-winning doc, 1976’s “Harlan County, USA,” details a coal miners’ strike to demand safer working conditions in a small Kentucky town. Her second Oscar came in 1991 for “American Dream,” about a strike against wage cuts at a meat-packing company in Austin, Minn.Kopple’s other projects have included 2006’s “Dixie Chicks: Shut Up and Sing,” about the backlash the country music trio faced when lead singer Natalie Maines publicly criticized the then-U.S. president.Kopple said she uses “any means necessary” to get access to subjects and situations for her docs, noting: “If they slammed the door on my face, I’d open it and come in.”Not that it’s been an easy ride.“We were machine-gunned with semi-automatic carbines, a miner was killed by a company foreman, women took over the picket line,” she recalled of her time shooting “Harlan County, USA,” which she made with a $12,000 loan, money from her parents and credit cards.“I was told if I was ever caught alone at night, I’d be killed.”Kopple’s Hot Docs honour comes as the fest boasts gender parity for the first time, with 50 per cent of this year’s films coming from female directors.“The barrier to entry perhaps is a little bit lower for documentary than fiction film,” said Shane Smith, director of programming for Hot Docs.“You can pick up a camera and you can tell a story, and if you can shape a story effectively, you can make a really great documentary.”Maya Gallus, whose doc “The Heat” is at the fest, said documentaries also don’t cost as much to make.“Any profession where we don’t require as much financing, you’re going to see more women,” said Gallus.“But also because it’s more portable, the hours are more flexible. For women who are trying to balance many things, including having a family, documentary can be more flexible than working in dramatic TV series or feature film.”Kopple said women in the doc world also don’t have to answer to as many top executives, who are often men.“We just go out on our own and we film and nobody knows what the story is unless we do, and we’re in the edit room putting it together and it’s no pressure whatsoever,” said Kopple.“The pressure, however, is to get financing. The pressure is to get the people that you make the film about to trust you and care about you, and that’s where all of your might goes and that’s where your thoughts go, because they mean everything to you.”center_img Barbara Kopple’s upcoming film looks at immigration in Canadalast_img read more

it is the governmental equivalent of solving a crossword puzzle It is essential to successful statecraft however–a point that George W Bush didn’t seem to understand until his second term in officeAmid the daily concussion of press coverage during crises Clinton battles for the free world comma by comma At times as in the negotiations over whether to use military force in Libya she loses perspective She begins highly skeptical about the efficacy of a strike against the Gaddafi regime which is threatening to massacre civilians in Benghazi She asks the right questions: "Who were these rebels we were aiding and were they prepared to lead Libya if Gaddafi fell" She sides with Defense Secretary Robert Gates–always a safe bet–against the White House aides who favor intervention Then she changes her mind lured by the siren song of multilateralism The Arab League wants US military action in Libya–that’s a breakthrough The Europeans especially the French are ready to roll She never says explicitly that she changes her mind–Gates says she does in his memoir–but it seems that Clinton has fallen for the promise of closer cooperation with the normally intransigent Arabs and the unusual willingness of the Europeans to take up arms Of course within days the Arab League criticizes the US-organized bombing campaign and the Europeans don’t have the military wherewithal for a sustained fight She also neglects discussing the consequences of her decision: the anarchy that is now Libya the rule by militias that eventually results in the murder of US Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others in Benghazi (Her chapter on Benghazi is comprehensive and logical though few of the Fox hounds who see the issue as a matter of theology not facts will buy it)Clinton can be selectively disingenuous Her chapter on Middle East negotiations dwells on the overreaction in the region and in the press when on Halloween night in 2009 in Jerusalem she calls "unprecedented" Israel’s offer of a 10-month freeze on West Bank settlement except for Jerusalem And yes it may well have been unprecedented in technical terms but other words more accurately describe the Israeli move: partial grudging unacceptable The rest of the world considers Israel’s settlement building in contested areas an illegal provocation But there is a more troubling and personal subtext here Clinton doesn’t mention it but she had established–and perhaps overstated–the Obama Administration’s hard line against the illegal settlements five months earlier when she’d said "[The President] wants to see a stop to settlements–not some settlements not outposts not ‘natural growth’ exceptions . That is our position" Her acceptance of Israel’s partial freeze was a retreat from that hard line a public retreat that dismayed the White House "Why does she do that" a senior Administration official asked me at the time referring to her initial harder-than-necessary position and later "unprecedented" retreatBecause she is human She does not always come equipped with a natural politician’s body armor or habitual flight to the anodyne She has an advocate’s fervor–especially when it involves women and children She’s got a temper She displays it in Africa when asked about her husband’s position on a complicated World Bank issue a question that seems to denigrate her importance "Wait you want me to tell you what my husband thinks . My husband is not Secretary of State" She knows this is wrong and apologizes quickly to the young man who asked the question But I would guess that one of the reasons Clinton seems so buttoned-up in public is a fear that she’ll unleash an arrant display of imperfection Unfortunately this deprives the public of her wicked sense of humor and commonsense candor–which is on occasional display but on a very short leash in Hard Choices She is happy to admit her glaring well-known mistakes like her support for the war in Iraq But she is wary of copping to lesser if more telling diplomatic misjudgments–on Libya or her support for the second Afghanistan surge Again Gates’ book is more candid: Clinton supported an even larger number of surge troops than he did She does not mention that in Hard ChoicesShe admits to disagreements with President Obama–on whether to arm the Syrian rebels for example–but the disagreements are ridiculously civil and vague especially when compared with the blue rages that Gates describes himself throwing in his memoir The only memorable verbal scuffles she describes are with foreigners And these are either resolved over time or not equablyThat the Hard Choices book-tour extravaganza has been a bit of a bomb has more to do with the public atmosphere than it does with the book which is a cut above the sort of thing you’d expect from a Secretary of State–although several cuts below Gates’ riveting candor Its most important lessons–about patience management the importance of details the slow building of personal relationships–are precisely the skills that we seem to ignore in the public arena these days We are impatient with anything beyond simple declarative sentences the more hortatory the better: "Assad must go" But diplomacy and good government exist in a mind-numbing haze of clauses and nuance Clinton makes the case that she has mastered the placement of commas and that she has the patience to negotiate with opponents foreign and domestic That is the purpose of the book: to demonstrate that she would bring these quiet attributes to the presidency In this moment of blare and paralysis it is a subtly clever argument to make Too subtle perhapsRalph Fiennes,Unwed mothers in India applying for a passport for their child will have to reveal how the child was conceived and specify whether they were raped.
