Regular test could save a woman’s life

first_imgHaving the test done can really save a woman’s life. Despins says if any pre-cancerous cells are caught early – and before becoming cancerous – then the condition is almost 100 per cent treatable.In the city, the Fort St. John Medical Clinic is holding drop-in Pap tests Oct. 25 to 29 from 10 a.m. until 12 p.m. and from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. All tests will be performed by a female doctor.Residents in other cities across the province can click here to find out what clinics are holding Pap smear testing throughout the week. It’s one of those appointments many women dread, but it’s also an appointment that could potentially save their lives.The B.C. Cancer Agency is encouraging all women to get a Pap smear test done for Pap Awareness Week, taking place Oct. 24 to 30.- Advertisement -It is important for women to be tested regularly so that any abnormalities in the test can be caught early and dealt with early on, says Lisa Despins, the promotion and education specialist with the Cervical Cancer Screening Program at the Agency.Despins says the Agency encourages women to be tested either when they turn 21 years-old or three years after they first become sexually active, whichever comes first.She adds that, in general, women in the province would have the test done every year for three years and if no abnormalities are found, then most women would only need to have one done every two years afterwards.According to the Canadian Cancer Society website, cervical cancer is the second most prevalent cancer affecting young adult women after breast cancer. However, the Society reports that both the incidence of cervical cancer as well as the death rate has been decreasing, which it attributes to better early detection through Pap smear testing.Advertisementlast_img read more

Blake attorney alleges misconduct by jury

first_imgThe appeal claimed that a juror who had a hearing impairment and said he missed most of the testimony was prodded into voting for the verdict by other jurors who warned he would force a mistrial if he didn’t agree with them. Blake’s wife was shot to death in the actor’s car in May 2001 outside a restaurant where the two had dined. On March 16, 2005, Blake was acquitted of murdering his wife. Jurors deliberating in Robert Blake’s civil trial discussed the cases of O.J. Simpson and Michael Jackson, ignored the lack of evidence that Blake killed his wife and decided to “send a message that celebrities and rich people cannot get away with murder,” the actor’s attorney said in an appeal filed Wednesday. Blake’s lawyer argued that the award of $30 million to the family of Bonny Lee Bakley in a wrongful-death lawsuit was the result of prejudice and jury misconduct and should be reversed. The actor was found liable for her death in the civil trial after being acquitted of murder in a criminal trial. In the 55-page document filed with the California 2nd District Court of Appeal, lawyer M. Gerald Schwartzbach cited detailed post-trial affidavits from three jurors who also said that one juror cited the Bible as the basis for a finding of liability and another concealed that her daughter was under life sentence in a murder case. 160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

Cleveland up for the challenge

first_imgThe Cleveland boys won nine events, including two by senior Michael Chiu, to record a 128-50 West Valley League victory over visiting Granada Hills High. The Cavaliers girls’ team, second at last year’s City final, took three of the top four spots in the 100-yard backstroke and swept the first three places in the 100 breaststroke to secure a 102-83 win over the Highlanders, who finished third last season. It took only eight days for the Cleveland of Reseda girls’ swim team to face its toughest challenge of the regular season. It took less than eight minutes Monday for the Cavaliers boys’ swim team to demonstrate why they are the defending City Section champions. “I told them this is going to determine the league championship right here,” said Cleveland coach Teresa Frias, whose girls’ team has won four consecutive league titles and two City championships in the past three years. “I told our breaststrokers they need to go 1-2-3, so I was happy to see that.” , Adriana Silva (5minutes, 33.7 seconds), Sami Elam and Kaley Meister took the top three spots for Granada Hills, which followed with a victory in the 200 free relay (1:50.1) to pull as close as 71-68. But the Cavaliers responded, with freshman Tessa Chiu – who also captured the 200 individual medley (2:27.0) – winning the 100 backstroke (1:04.9). Jessica Chong (1:16.8), Yuri Shin and Susana Balcazar’s breaststroke sweep extended the lead to 96-75. “I’m surprised they swam the 500,” Frias said. “I thought they would sweep the 50 and 100, so I was bummed about how the 500 went. But the 50 and 100 were a good surprise for me with the way (we) stepped up.” Silva, fourth in the 50 and second in the 100 at last year’s City finals, doubled in the 200 (2:04.5) and 500. She also contributed to victories in the 200 and 400 (4:00.5)relays. center_img “It’s definitely very encouraging,” said Granada Hills coach Gila Ruivenkamp, whose teams will face reigning City girls’ champion and last year’s boys’ runner-up Palisades of Pacific Palisades in a nonleague meet Wednesday at Cal State Northridge. “The varsity girls did do well, especially since we didn’t have all of our divers.” Chris Baier, the defending City champion in the boys’ 200 and 500 frees, followed a strong performance over the weekend at the Speedo California/Nevada Spring Sectionals in Long Beach with easy victories in 1:54.5 and 4:52.7. Garrett Hubbard was the only other individual winner for the Highlanders, capturing the 200 IM (2:10.8). Chiu doubled in the 100 free (51.0) and 100 backstroke (54.8), and Fred Aquino, Albert Han and Ashkaun Hami also won individual events for the six-time league champion Cavaliers, who swept all three relays.

Loopy `loophole’ ideas

first_img AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MORECoach Doc Rivers a “fan” from way back of Jazz’s Jordan ClarksonThe legislative policy analyst is asking lawmakers to consider a variety of ways to discourage investment in California, including reducing the $1 million limit on deductions, removing home equity lines from the list of deductions, replacing deductions with less lucrative credits and taking away deductions on second home mortgages. There is no reason for taxpayers to buy into a fiscal “emergency” that doesn’t exist. Taxpayers see little return on their investment no matter how much they hand over to the state. Despite the billions taken annually from taxpayers, the state has failed to provide decent roads, adequate schools, enough prison beds or responsible economic planning. We see no reason to reward failure with higher taxes. Lawmakers and the public employee unions that put them in office have a vested interest in maintaining the size of California’s mammoth, yet ineffective, government, which has become an industrial complex for those in its employ. With generous car allowances and per diems they receive just for driving to and showing up for often short work “weeks,” lawmakers should think about eliminating their own perks before they start knocking on average people’s doors with fedoras in hand. State considers eliminating break on mortgage interest. California tax policy tends to travel in the direction opposite the economy. Just when hiring, spending and home values are leaning on the ropes for support, Sacramento delivers a sucker punch after the bell. State legislative analysts used this traditionally slow news week to suggest reducing or eliminating homeowners’ ability to deduct mortgage interest from their state income taxes. The independent policy wonks euphemistically called a tax code that benefits so many regular people a “loophole” that helps the rich, according to a report from the MediaNews Group Sacramento bureau. While the deduction certainly benefits high income earners – it is good for up to $1 million loans and lines of credit – there are plenty of people struggling to make $400,000 mortgages who hardly qualify as “rich.” With the foreclosure crisis, variable interest rate loans adjusting higher and a tight credit market all swirling, this is not the time to toy with one of the few decent tax deductions offered to working and wealthy families alike. Bad times like these should be viewed as an opportunity to lower taxes and spark growth, hiring and spending and reverse the tax policies that drove so many people and businesses from California. Home ownership should be encouraged, in order to build stable communities in increasingly unstable times. Instead of igniting an economic fire, lawmakers are trying to smother Californians into accepting tax increases by threatening to release prisoners and shortchanging “guaranteed” school funding. Taxpayers should dismiss those scare tactics and demand that lawmakers find a way to educate children and keep prisoners locked up. We have a New Year’s resolution for Californians: Deduct any politician from office who toys with the tax break on mortgage interest.160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

The Tweeting House: Twitter + Internet of Things

first_imgFacebook is Becoming Less Personal and More Pro… The problem for most organizations, including government, is that they aren’t necessarily sure what uses there are right now for sensors. For example power companies may not see the economic value of replacing meter readers with automatic sensors. Stanford-Clark’s response is that “a lot of other apps will spring out of the woodwork,” when sensors are added and hooked into messaging software. Stanford-Clark and IBM have identified 3 main things that are required for this trend to play out fully, conveniently summed up as “the three ‘I’s”: Instrumented, Interconnected, and Intelligent. In my next post, I’ll explore this more – plus some of IBM’s other projects in this area. A Comprehensive Guide to a Content Audit The Dos and Don’ts of Brand Awareness Videos Tags:#Analysis#Internet of Things#Trends#twitter#web richard macmanus I recently spoke to Andy Stanford-Clark, a Master Inventor and Distinguished Engineer at IBM. He’s been working on a number of Twitter and real-time monitoring projects, many of them at the intersection of two big trends we’ve been tracking in 2009: The Real-time Web and Internet of Things. Stanford-Clark has set up various systems for real-time monitoring of the Internet of Things, many of them using Twitter (he calls the resulting tweets “tweetjects”). One example got a bit of mainstream media coverage lately: a house that uses Twitter to monitor its energy consumption.As Rory Cellan-Jones from the BBC reported recently, Stanford-Clark has installed sensors on a number of household objects – such as electricity meters and windows. From this he can monitor lighting, heating, temperature, phone and water usage. Stanford-Clark is able to turn his fountain, lights and heaters on and off by flicking switches on a web page or from a live dashboard application on his mobile phone. He’s also now hooked up his house sensors to a Twitter account: andy_house (it’s a private account, so requires Andy’s approval before you can follow it). Here’s a BBC tv report about the house and other similar projects involving sensors and Twitter:As well as his own house, Stanford-Clark has also set up Twitter accounts for his local ferry and bus – for example so they can tweet their real-time locations.What Use is a Tweeting House?Stanford-Clark told me that as well as providing useful data about what his house is doing – for example how warm is the lounge, or has he left a door open – the system can also apply intelligence to his house. For example it can cross-reference house data against AMEE (an open platform for measuring energy consumption), in order to infer the real-time carbon footprint for his house.These experiments are just the start of what’s possible by hooking sensors up to real-time messaging systems like Twitter. However there’s a lot of infrastructure work that needs to be done first. Stanford-Clark told me that to get at this type of data for many everyday things, governments, city councils and companies will need to instrument public things with sensors – e.g. gas pipelines, buses, trains, ferries.

A hairy harvest season in Valley

first_imgWith the braids of several women being cut off by unknown assailants, harvest of fruits in Kulgam of south Kashmir has lost its verve. People staged a shutdown and held a street protest on Monday against the government’s failure to nab the culprits after three women lost their braids in Anantnag and Kulgam in 24 hours. Probe onDeputy Commissioner, Kulgam, Talat Parvaiz said 14 cases of braid-chopping had been reported. “An inquiry committee has been set up. We appeal to the people to support the administration,” Mr. Parvaiz said. M.Y. Tarigami, Kulgam MLA and CPI(M) leader, people were panicking when the harvest season was in full swing. “This can also affect the ongoing fruit trade. The administration must gear up to book these anti-social elements,” Mr. Tarigami said. Local people told The Hindu that women had been forced to stay indoors and keep away from orchards. Kulgam is home to the Valley’s best apple orchards, and this is the peak harvest season. Malwan, Banimula, Chandargi, Galwanpora and Manzgam are among the affected villages.CM’s orderChief Minister Mehbooba Mufti has asked the police to carry out an investigation. “A special investigation team (SIT) has been formed, and very soon, they will nab the people involved in it,” Director-General Police S.P. Vaid said.last_img read more
