REGINA – Police in Regina say they are reviewing another incident where a police dog mistakenly bit someone.Linus Kaysaywaysemat says he was outside smoking a cigarette last Thursday when he was bitten by a Regina Police Service dog.He says the dog chewed on his arm for a few minutes before police were able to get the animal off him.Earlier last week, another police dog that was leashed during a training exercise turned a corner and bit a 56-year-old man on the leg.Superintendent Darcy Koch says police are collecting information on both cases and will forward it to the Use of Force board.He says it’s a concern whenever a citizen is wrongly bitten by a police dog.“It’s a mistake that was made and we’re going to make sure that we’re going to make any corrections that might need to come from that,” Koch said.Koch said the dog on Thursday was tracking a suspect in an active investigation and that police are looking into why it bit someone who wasn’t a suspect.One possibility, he said, was the man shared the same scent as the suspect. Another is that the dog was surprised by the sudden appearance of the man.Kaysaywaysemat said the dog was on him so quickly, he didn’t have time to react.“I just had time to look over to my loved one and tell her that there was a dog, and by the time that we looked back, it was biting on my arm,” he said.“One of my boys said he’d seen the dog bite my arm, and when the dog let go of my arm, he said the dog’s teeth were bloody.”He said his daughter had a nightmare after the incident and he had to comfort them because they believed the dog would be coming back.Koch says the dogs are trained to a provincial standard and are subject to on-going training as well.Both of the dogs are still on active duty.(CJME)
PORT ALBERNI, B.C. – The managers of two pot shops on Vancouver Island where police seized thousands of dollars worth of marijuana say the British Columbia government failed them by only approving one store in the province before legalization as raids were reported on both ends of the country.The RCMP say they entered the Port Alberni Cannabis Club at around 11 a.m. Wednesday, before visiting Leaf Compassion Cannabis Dispensary around 2 p.m., and found both stores were open without provincial licences.Police gave her store no warning in the weeks or days before the raid, said Port Alberni Cannabis Club manager Christine Jarvis, who blamed the province for not approving her licence application in time for legalization on Wednesday.“I feel violated. They had enough time to do this,” she said, adding it’s been three years since Prime Minister Justin Trudeau signalled his intention to legalize marijuana.Eric Vesaranta, general manager of Leaf Compassion Cannabis Dispensary, said the Mounties left the store practically empty. He intends to dispute his $575 ticket.“It’s literally all the government’s fault with not having applications ready on time,” he said. “Everybody filled them out in time, but the government didn’t give them back in time for legalization.”On the other side of the country, a dispensary in St. John’s was raided Thursday by police and inspectors from the Newfoundland and Labrador Liquor Corp.“At this point, all I can say is that a warrant was executed early this evening at that location,” said Greg Gill of the liquor corporation, declining to comment on possible charges.Police and liquor inspectors had cleared the downtown dispensary by 10 p.m. local time, after bagging and tagging everything inside.Officers seized cannabis products from both locations in Port Alberni, B.C., and issued the owners violation tickets for the unlawful sale of marijuana, the RCMP said in a statement.“In accordance with the new legislation and regulations, cannabis is to be sold exclusively at government-run stores, licensed private retailers, and the B.C. government’s online store,” the statement said.“While the legal recreational use of cannabis may be new, the enforcement of laws around the illegal production, distribution and consumption of cannabis is not.”It’s unclear whether the raids in B.C. were the first in Canada after marijuana was legalized.Sgt. Janelle Shoihet said she was not aware of any other raids by the Mounties in British Columbia. The RCMP’s national headquarters said it could not provide a response Thursday on whether there’d been other similar enforcement by the Mounties in other parts of Canada.The federal government gave the provinces and territories the authority to licence retail stores ahead of marijuana becoming legal on Wednesday. At this point, B.C. only has one licensed location — a government-run store in Kamloops in B.C.’s Interior — and an online store.Both the Port Alberni Cannabis Club and Leaf Compassion Cannabis Dispensary hold municipal business licences and paid a $7,500 fee as part of their application for provincial licences.Jarvis said the Mounties seized everything that was visible in the store, totalling about $10,000 worth of product, and issued her a $575 ticket.Her customers are primarily older medical users who come for edibles, concentrates and other products that keep them off pain relievers and sleeping pills, she said.“We have no access to get to Kamloops. We’d have to take a ferry and everything. Online, you have to have a credit card and wait two to four days shipping,” she said.“It’s unreasonable to ask anyone in smaller towns to even bother trying to go that route. So now, they can’t even get it.”Public Safety Minister Mike Farnworth advised illicit dispensaries to shut down before Wednesday and wait to receive provincial approval.On Wednesday, he said part of the delay in opening stores was because of the province’s promise that local governments will get to make the final decision about pot outlets in their communities. Many municipalities are waiting for Saturday’s local elections before proceeding, he added.A Ministry of Attorney General spokesman said Thursday that legislation prevented the province from issuing a retail store licence until federal legalization came into force, but he did not elaborate on which legislation the province was referring to.Newfoundland and Labrador and New Brunswick each had 20 stores open on Wednesday, while Alberta had 17.Vesaranta, said his store serves scores of medical users who consider marijuana to be akin to their prescription medication.“People are coming in here like, ‘Where do I go now?’ … They’re like, ‘I haven’t been to a black market dealer for two or three years,’” he said.“It leaves them with nowhere to get medicine.”There are 186 paid applications being processed in the province, including 73 that have been sent to municipal governments for final approval.Earlier this week, Vancouver Chief Const. Adam Palmer, who is also president of the Canadian Association of Chiefs of Police, said raids of unlicensed pot shops on Day 1 of legalization were “highly unlikely.” He said police would take a “common-sense, pragmatic approach.”— By Laura Kane in Vancouver read more

Narendra Modi could have been an advertising czar if not the Prime Minister of India. When the whole country is going through an extremely important election season, Modi manages to spring a surprise with a strategically designed Bollywood-laced hour-long interview with none other than Akshay Kumar, a man who is a superstar in his own right and has an image as a ‘hero of the masses’ that fit the bill perfectly. So what if Modi has been unabashedly criticized by his opponents; so what if the screening of his biopic has been stalled by the Election Commission; so what if his party is being accused of incorporating faces who have been driven out from their former political associations? Narendra Modi, each time, manages to throttle his unkindest critics with a masterstroke. In a nutshell, this mega-interview with Akshay Kumar, though emphatically termed as ‘apolitical’, has brought the focus back on the Prime Minister. It doesn’t match up as a primarily ‘apolitical’ interview because it highlights a man, who occupies the topmost political position in this country, resides in the official residence and principal workplace of the Prime Minister of India, is contesting elections from Varanasi, is the star campaigner for his party and discusses his arch rivals sending kurtas and sweets for him. At this juncture, the main issues of the elections seem to have taken a backseat and it appears as if democracy is becoming fragile and vulnerable in front of this individual who has just launched a ‘surprise strike’ (let’s not call it surgical strike) on India, in filmi-style. The timing, the opportunism, the unpredictability, the theme, the apparent impersonalism — all conform to a unique brand building strategy with immaculate forethought for which the Prime Minister is quite famous. Known to avoid spontaneous interactions with the media, the choice of Akshay Kumar as his interviewer seemed quite obvious because then, he could steer clear through any controversy or complicated wrangle that might evolve during the freewheeling tête-à-tête. From one action hero interviewing another (not in the literal sense though), it remained restricted to mangoes, humour, way of life, his sleeplessness, his friendship with global leaders like Barack Obama, his workaholic ways and several others. But the entire episode missed real ‘action’! It missed the chiselled sharpness of an intelligently aggressive ‘asker’ or ‘questioner’ who not only raises curiosity but also does justice to the given assignment. For many, this interview is definitely not ‘apolitical’ but part of a larger strategy of the BJP to make the general elections a referendum on Modi. Through his tacit mention of Bengal Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee sending him kurtas and sweets once a year that she personally selects for him, he not only challenged her stance against him publicly since she is seen as one of his fiercest critics, but also paved way for a misconstrued notion about the genuineness of her political thought process that she is so rigorously pursuing. This interview, thus, is much more than a ‘decent non-political’ narrative, exposing an ambush over his strongest detractors, a camouflaged political gimmick highlighting a garrulous ‘dialoguebaaz’ who tries to flex his muscles at the slightest opportunity, be it in front of a real-life action hero. read more
In its new report, Universality and the SDGs: A Business Perspective, the Sustainable Development Goal Fund (SDG Fund) underscored the importance of universality as a potential driver to impact engagement with the private sector.“Universality in this context is […] applicable to all countries, while taking into account different national realities, capacities and levels of development that respect national policies and principles,” said the SDG Fund in a news release issued today.In the report, the SDG Fund also found that while many firms are working in the areas of SDGs, their work is not always linked to the Goals or articulated as such.Against this backdrop, the report also noted the role of the UN. For instance, it said, that the global Organization can help in educating and informing companies on the universal dimensions of the SDGs, as well as in facilitating access to the resources, tools and learning to better promote implementation and alignment across sectors.In its report, the SDG Fund also cited issues that companies face when engaging on topics associated with SDGs, such as not being able to fully understand the complexity and depth of the SDGs in context of their operations. The report further noted that for most firms, while philanthropic and corporate social responsibility initiatives remained “customary,” framing sustainability initiatives through the SDGs offered great benefits, given that they provide a clear and unified set of globally-accepted goals and related targets. It also recognized the importance of developing partnerships between the private sector and development actors, such as the UN, in order to leverage complementary expertise. The report also includes case studies with the SDG Fund’s Private Sector Advisory Group, highlighting the importance of the implementation of SDGs, initiating multi-stakeholder collaboration and efforts to leverage the complementary expertise of new actors. The Sustainable Development Goals Fund is an international multi-donor and multi-agency development mechanism created in 2014 by the UN Development Program (UNDP), on behalf of the UN system, to support sustainable development activities through integrated and multidimensional joint programmes. read more

Peers including the Bishop of Peterborough have called on the Government to protect the identity of people accused of a crime after their death. One member of the House of Lords said Anglicans were “deeply ashamed” of the Church of England’s handling of the case of Bishop George Bell, who was accused of abusing a child several decades after his death in 1958. A report published at the end of last year by Lord Carlile found that the highly-respected bishop’s reputation had been unnecessarily damaged by the Church when it publicly named him in an apology to the alleged victim in 2015. In a debate in the House of Lords on Monday peers called on the Government to “uphold the cardinal principle that an individual is innocent until proved guilty”. Official historian of the Conservative Party Lord Lexden asked home office minister Baroness Williams whether the Government would “review the law governing the naming of deceased individuals against whom criminal allegations have been made”.He called on the Government to review the law in order to to ensure the anonymity of dead suspects accused by “one uncorroborated alleged witness”.Fellow peer Lord Cormack added that the case was “deeply shocking” and said “the reputation of a great man has been traduced, and many of us who are Anglicans are deeply ashamed of the way that the Anglican Church has behaved”. In cases until there is overwhelming evidence to suggest guilt, it seems reasonable for people’s reputations not to be damaged in this public wayRt Revd Donald Allister The Bishop of Peterborough, the Rt Revd Donald Allister echoed the calls and added: “In all cases where the complainant has a right to be anonymous, there seems to be a case for the respondent also to be anonymous, and in cases until there is overwhelming evidence to suggest guilt, it seems reasonable for people’s reputations not to be damaged in this public way.”However Baroness Williams said the Government “do not have plans to review the law”. “Any decision to name an individual where that is considered to be in the public interest will necessarily be specific to the circumstances of an individual case,” she said. read more
Mr Justice Mostyn had ruled in the High Court last February that Mrs Cowan had no right to make a claim.He said the widow received around £435,000 in the first year after her husband died and now receives a regular monthly payout, amounting to around £240,000 a year.However, ruling yesterday in the widow’s favour and overturning the High Court decision, Lady Justice Asplin said Mr Justice Mostyn was wrong and had “indulged in speculation about Mr Cowan’s motivation” in structuring his will in the way that he did.She added that Mr Cowan was “distracted from the real question whether it was arguable that reasonable financial provision had not been made for Mrs Cowan”.In a statement, Mrs Cowan said she was “delighted” with the result. Widows should have at least some control over the money they inherit, a panel of appeal judges declared after overturning a High Court decision.The widow of the “genius” tycoon who made £30million after he “brought the black bin liner to Britain” has won a landmark victory in a fight over control of his fortune yesterday.Michael Cowan, who died in April 2016 from a brain tumour, aged 78, built his wealth from humble beginnings. Applying a “Midas touch” for business, he grew his phenomenally successful plastics company, Hanmere Polythene Ltd, until he was a multimillionaire.He married his lover of 25 years, Mary Jane Cowan, in February 2016, but died two months later.He left her with access to hundreds of thousands of pounds in ready cash and also used his will to set up a structure of “generous” trust funds, “designed to meet her every reasonable need for the rest of her life”.However, his 77-year-old widow was not happy with the arrangement, which left her with no assets in her own name and no control over her late husband’s millions.Now the Court of Appeal, on which Lady Justice King and Lord Justice Baker also sat, has granted her permission to make a claim against his estate, on the basis that his will did not make “reasonable provision” for her needs.

It was the day on which we adopted our own Constitution and erected institutions to govern ourselves and guarantee our freedom,” the President said.The Guyanese Head of State also said that Independence Day celebrates the unique combination of the people who came – Africans, Chinese, Indians and Portuguese – and with the Amerindians who lived here from time immemorial, contributed to the creation of a multi-racial and multi-religious state.President Granger noted that the ‘free state’ which was established on May 26th 1966 recognised the country’s commitment to social cohesion, through which its people learned to accept and respect each other’s values and beliefs, and to share the common space they call homeland.“The ‘free state’ is one that is free from discrimination. It is one that is built on the basis of respect for cultural diversity, political inclusivity and social equality.The ‘free state’ recognises our common and complex heritage. It reminds us of Chinese Arrival Day, celebrated on 12th January; of Portuguese Arrival Day, celebrated on 3rd May; of Indian Arrival Day, celebrated on 5th May; of African Emancipation Day, celebrated on 1st August; and of Indigenous Heritage Month, observed throughout September,” Granger noted.The Guyanese leader said the ‘free state’ re-commits the country to dismantling the divisions of geography. Disparities between hinterland and coastland and between rural and urban communities eventually must be eliminated, so that no group feels excluded, the Head of State has posited.Moreover, he noted that the ‘cohesive state’ is concerned with constructing a multi-cultural society and creating the conditions for diverse peoples to coexist.“Society needs to be strengthened in each occupational sector, in each geographical region, in each community, and in each social stratum. The ‘cohesive state’ is not a political expedient. It can be realised only by respecting the differences and the diversity of society, and by the removal of anger, hatred, ignorance and poverty. It can be created by mutual respect for each other’s cultural and religious differences,” he added.Granger noted that Guyana’s national tapestry is composed of the variegated threads – culture, ethnicity and faith – of its peoples. The national tapestry, he added, is stronger because it is woven from our separate but sturdy strands.He said, “It is more resilient, because it represents and reflects the talents of different groups.”On the other hand, the Head of State outlined that independence also bequeathed a state through which Guyanese became heirs of a magnificent patrimony; that is, a beautiful, blissful and bountiful country that is becoming a ‘green state’.“The ‘green state’ is a natural product of our verdant and luxuriant environment. Our ecosystems – our coastland, hinterland, highlands, islands, wetlands, grasslands, lakes, rivers, rainforests and waterfalls – are our birthright. Our bio-diversity is the endowment of our ancestors, the patrimony of all Guyanese, and the bequest we hold in trust for posterity,” he asserted.The President said the ‘green state’ can flourish, and can furnish a ‘good life’ for generations to come by engendering a spirit of shared social responsibility.According to the Guyanese Leader, the ‘green state’ must embody a common commitment to the environment which arises from our unique shared patrimony, and which will lead to a prosperous future.“The 51st anniversary of Independence inspires us all to continue to work towards preserving the ‘free state’; towards establishing a ‘green state’, and towards creating a ‘cohesive state.’ I extend fraternal congratulations to all – at home and in our diaspora – as we celebrate our freedom, our statehood, and our precious patrimony,” the President said. read more
Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Optimism about the reunification of Cyprus reached a high Thursday as the two leaders of the ethnically split island pledged their commitment to reach a settlement, all with a symbolic handshake, at Davos in the Swiss Alps, the setting of the ongoing World Economic Forum.Cyprus President Nicos Anastasiades and Turkish-Cypriot leader Mustafa Akinci had a working lunch with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who urged the pair to seize the positive momentum in ongoing talks, acknowledging however that “a number of sensitive and difficult issues” remain.Territorial matters as well as power-sharing and property rights are seen as the largest stumbling blocks to a peace deal.Earlier, Anastasiades told the forum that “2016 could be the year that we end the unacceptable status quo.”“Living in the midst of a region in turmoil, we are committed to continue working with resolve to heal what is an open wound at the heart of Europe,” he said, appealing to outsiders for economic backing.“We do hope that we should have the support of the international community at large, particularly as regards substantially contributing to meet the financial aspects of the solution,” he said.Emphasizing that Anastasiades and himself embody the last generation with living memories of a united Cyprus, Akinci described the ongoing process as “the last chance to reunite the island.”The Turkish-Cypriot leader said that energy deposits discovered off the island were a catalyst for a solution.Source: Kathimerini“With this solution, newly found hydrocarbon resources in the Eastern Mediterranean will act as a source of peace cooperation rather than conflict and tension,” he said.In earlier comments to the media, Akinci said that potential normalization of Turkish-Israeli ties would make a Cyprus peace deal an imperative.“It is important to unify Cypriot and Israeli reserves and transfer these via Cyprus to Turkey and from there to Europe,” he said. read more

April 15, 2019 Posted: April 15, 2019 Categories: California News, Local San Diego News, National & International News FacebookTwitter KUSI Newsroom Jury selection begins in antitrust lawsuit between Apple and Qualcomm KUSI Newsroom, SAN DIEGO (CNS) – Jury selection is scheduled to begin Monday in a case between technology giants Apple and Qualcomm, with Apple seeking billions over what it claims are exorbitant and unfair fees Qualcomm allegedly charged for the use of Qualcomm chips in iPhones.The trial slated to begin this week in San Diego federal court is the latest in a string of legal battles between the two companies.Apple is accusing Qualcomm of charging excessive royalties for Qualcomm’s hardware featured in older iPhone models. The iPhone maker says that despite Qualcomm supplying only some components used in iPhones, the San Diego- based mobile chip company has sought money based on the total cost of each phone.Apple alleges it’s paid Qualcomm $7.50 per iPhone sold, when the true fee should be around $1.50 per iPhone.Apple also says that Qualcomm has withheld around $1 billion in rebates it was supposed to pay Apple as reimbursement for the patent royalties, which U.S. District Judge Gonzalo Curiel recently ruled Qualcomm was obligated to pay. Curiel is also overseeing this week’s trial, and his decision regarding the rebates will not be made final until the trial concludes.Qualcomm alleges that Apple is committing patent infringement by using Qualcomm technologies that improve iPhone battery life without permission.Its claims have secured legal victories in the form of injunctions prohibiting the sale of certain iPhone models in Germany and China.Qualcomm has also faced antitrust accusations from countries around the globe, with the company fined by China, South Korea, and the European Union over complaints that it’s operating as a monopoly.Qualcomm says it only withheld its rebate payments to Apple because Apple made misleading accusations to the Korea Fair Trade Commission during its antitrust investigation, while Apple says Qualcomm withheld the rebates as punishment for its fair cooperation with Korean regulators.Last month, Qualcomm won a local legal battle against Apple, when a federal jury in San Diego awarded Qualcomm $31 million in damages for Apple’s infringement of three Qualcomm patents.“Today’s unanimous jury verdict is the latest victory in our worldwide patent litigation directed at holding Apple accountable for using our valuable technologies without paying for them,” Don Rosenberg, Qualcomm executive vice president and general counsel, said following the verdict. “The technologies invented by Qualcomm and others are what made it possible for Apple to enter the market and become successful so quickly. The three patents found to be infringed in this case represent just a small fraction of Qualcomm’s valuable portfolio of tens of thousands of patents. We are gratified that courts all over the world are rejecting Apple’s strategy of refusing to pay for the use of our IP.”The San Diego trial is expected to last through mid-May.Meanwhile, a verdict is pending in a Federal Trade Commission lawsuit against Qualcomm for similar alleged monopolistic practices.Qualcomm’s business dealings with Apple were mentioned in the FTC’s court papers. stating “Qualcomm’s exclusive arrangement with Apple denied other baseband processor suppliers the benefits of working with a particularly important cell phone manufacturer and hampered their development into effective competitors.”Qualcomm alleged that the evidence presented in the trial “showed how Qualcomm’s years of R&D and innovation fostered competition, and growth for the entire mobile economy to the benefit of consumers around the world.”Closing arguments wrapped up in that trial in Northern California earlier this year, but a verdict is still pending from U.S. District Judge Lucy Koh. read more
Mega book retailer Barnes & Noble recently unveiled the BN eReader for Apple’s iPad, a free application it says allows users to customize their reading experience, take notes, browse newspapers and magazines, and share e-books with friends.“BN eReader for iPad is designed to offer an easy, yet sophisticated, customizable reading experience,” BarnesandNoble.com digital products vice president Doug Gottlieb tells FOLIO:. “It is the only app that enables iPad users to share e-books with friends, shop Barnes & Noble’s vast catalogue of more than one million e-books and periodicals and access their personal Barnes & Noble digital library across multiple devices.”Barnes & Nobile developed the app in-house using Apple’s Software Developer Kit (SDK). The app allows users to adjust page colors, fonts and themes and to switch between portrait and landscape views. “Our testing included talking to customers to find out what they wanted from an e-reader app for iPad, using what we learned with the Nook reader, as well as what we learned from creating our own e-reader app for other devices and drawing on our own experience as avid readers,” says Gottlieb. The BN eReader for iPad also utilizes Barnes & Noble’s LendMe technology, which allows users to share “eligible” e-books with friends who can access them using the Barnes & Noble Nook, Apple’s iPad, iPhone or iPod touch, or computers enabled with free BN eReader software for up to 14 days. “The LendMe experience was designed to be seamlessly integrated with the iPad,” Gottlieb explains. “BN eReader for iPad users can simply choose an eligible e-book flagged with the LendMe icon, then access their existing contacts in iPad’s onboard address book, tap the contact button and send the lend offer, all without needing to type a single word.”Chad Phelps, executive vice president of e-media at F+W Media, believes the BN eReader will provide magazine publishers with another important distribution mechanism. “Rather than relying solely on digital distributors of individual magazine issues, publishers need to see themselves as content providers and use the platform for instant distribution of their content with no third party involvement or technology investment,” he says. “Periodical rate has given way to digital delivery.”For F+W, which publishes and sells books and other products in addition to magazines, Phelps belives the BN eReader is the “future of ‘book’ selling. “The launch of the app also validates key indicators for all of us in the content business,” he says. “By being platform-agnostic, launching the iPad app in addition to their existing apps for iPhone, BlackBerry, Android, and Windows Mobile phones, B&N is truly allowing its users to consume content on any device.” read more

World Bank’s Bangladesh country director Qimiao Fan speaks at an international conference on urbanisation at capital’s Sonargaon hotel on Saturday. Photo: Abu Taib Ahmed Discussants at an international conference in Dhaka on Saturday said rapid yet problematic urbanisation, lack of right policy and investment and also lack of national effort has worsened Dhaka’s crisis over the years.“Dhaka is facing a crisis in every area of services. Because of lack of policies or sometimes for wrong politics or sometimes for a combination of both, Dhaka’s problems are expanding,” World Bank’s Lead Urban Specialist Balakrishna Menon told the conference held at the Sonargaon hotel.The conference titled “Cities Forum: Building knowledge network and partnerships for sustainable urban development in Bangladesh” was organised by The World Bank, in association with Municipal Association of Bangladesh, Bangladesh Institute of Planners, Engineers Institution of Bangladesh, Institute of Architects Bangladesh and a Swiss agency.Over 500 participants including some 322 mayors of different cities and municipalities from across the country took part in the two-day long conference.Balakrishna was making a presentation on “Setting the Global and Regional Context: Leveraging Urbanisation in Bangladesh”.Recalling a similar workshop he joined twenty years ago in Dhaka, Balakrishna said he heard everyone in that workshop saying Dhaka’s condition is a big concern and same with other cities.“And coming back to Dhaka after 20 years, we can say that many of the city problems remained unchanged. In fact, many say that the problems have worsened further over time. So urbanisation is problematic.”He said rapid urbanisation is a fact. “Officially, some 30 per cent areas [in Bangladesh] are urban, but the reality on the ground is that it is more than 50 per cent.”A view of rapidly growing Dhaka city. Prothom Alo file photo “While hosting some 12 per cent of the country’s population, Dhaka contributes a quarter to its economy. Bangladesh’s economic activities are primarily concentrated in Dhaka and in smaller part in Chittagong,” he told the conference.The World Bank urban specialist said more people are migrating to Dhaka as it provides a pathway for a better life.“Dhaka is providing best schools, best hospitals, best jobs and it is a centre of Bangladesh’s culture. People are always moving to Dhaka.“Two million people moved to Dhaka in the last five years which is unprecedented in any big city in the world. One needs to come to Dhaka to grow, to prosper, and to get a better life.“But the rapid population growth in Dhaka has not been accompanied by a concurrent improvement in the quality of life. So, Dhaka often ranks among the lowest of international cities,” said the urban specialist.He went on saying, “Because we’ve not paid enough attention to Dhaka, because we’ve under invested in Dhaka, the city is not living up to its true potentials. And this has real costs – social, economic and cultural – and people costs.”He said told the conference that urban areas are twice as densely populated as the country as a whole.“And they are eight times more productive than the country as a whole, but poverty in the urban areas like Dhaka is getting entrenched and deep that comes with a host of problems.” Opining that economic growth is closely associated with urbanisation, the World Bank specialist said Bangladesh needs to formulate right policies and allocate required investments.“Get the right policies and investment, ensures that land, houses, services, security are delivered to its residents and businesses and institutions. Devise what can be done to improve coordination among the agencies to get the projects done in time.”He said fixing the institutions by strengthening their capacity is “super important and super urgent” for Dhaka. “A national effort is required to improve Dhaka.”Speaking on the occasion, World Bank’s Bangladesh country director Qimiao Fan said better management of urban areas increases the productivity.“Urbanisations are the engines of growth but unplanned urbanisation prevents cities from realising their full potentials. Urban areas produce about 60 per cent of the GDP and Dhaka and Chittagong in combined producing 47 per cent GDP,” he added.He said much more things to be done to capture full benefits facilities of urbanisation.“Bangladesh needs to address critical challenges brought about by massive unplanned urbanisation which is characterised by high level of poverty.”He quoted statistics of the Bangladesh Bureau of Statistics BBS which said as much as 30 million people which constitute 62 per cent of total urban people in the country live in the informal settlements and slums.He said Bangladesh will need to provide 17 million new homes in urban areas by 2050 given the rapid migration of people to the urban areas.Underscoring the need for more investment for the improvement of Dhaka and other cities, Qimiao said share of spending compared to the public expenditure of Bangladesh is about only three per cent, which is very low by global standard. “For instances, it’s 16 per cent in Bhutan and 10 per cent in Nepal.” Swedish ambassador in Dhaka Rene Holenstein said Switzerland’s assistance to Bangladesh is aimed to establish a strong local government system that provides important public services to all.“Strong urban government is a prerequisite to achieve Bangladesh’s desire to be a middle-income country.”Speaking as the chief guest at the inaugural ceremony of the conference, speaker Shirin Sharmin Chaudhury said Bangladesh’s economy has the capacity to allocate resources required for the development of the cities.According to the 2011 census data, the total population density is about 1,015 people per square kilometre in the country while urban population density is 1,900 per square kilometre. read more

A 3-D printer in use to create anatomical models of complex patient anatomy at North Shore-LIJ Health System Feinstein Institute for Medical Research, Manhasset, N.Y.Science fiction offers a lot of ideas for creating new body parts on demand, and the advancement of 3-D printing (also called additive manufacturing) is slowly translating this idea into science fact. Today, the 3-D printed anatomic models created from patient computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) or 3-D ultrasound imaging datasets are used for education and to plan and navigate difficult procedures. These models are used to teach about complex or rare cardiac or congenital conditions that up until recently could only be seen using examples extracted from cadavers. Anatomical models of rare cardiac anatomy can be printed on-demand from CT scans of surviving patients.That concept can now be translated into 3-D printing of implantable devices customized to a specific patient using their imaging. Experts at several medical conferences are saying printing functional biological replacement tissues is already in development. Three-dimensional printing has become a topic of discussion in conference sessions and on the expo floors at many medical meetings over the past several years. The topic was covered in a session at the 2015 Radiological Society of North America’s (RSNA) annual meeting last December, which is detailed in the following sections. (Editor’s note: You can watch a video interview with Dee Dee Wang, M.D., FACC, FASE, Henry Ford Hospital, explaining the use of 3-D printing to aid procedural planning and guidance in complex structural heart cases, at http://bit.ly/1MAWlRZ. See video examples of 3-D printed hearts as part of the editor’s choice of the most innovative new technology at ACC.16 at http://bit.ly/1MAWlRZ.)Early Experience Printing Implantable DevicesPrinted 3-D models are currently used for surgical planning in complex cases, especially in pediatric congenital heart procedures, said Richard G. Ohye, M.D., professor of cardiac surgery, head, section of pediatric cardiovascular surgery, surgical director, pediatric cardiovascular transplant program, co-director, Michigan Congenital Heart Center, C.S. Mott Children’s Hospital, Ann Arbor, Mich. However, he explained 3-D printing will soon allow the creation of customized implantable medical devices, including actual tissue or vessel replacements. In fact, 3-D printed devices are already being used on a small scale. He presented a case of a 3-month-old patient whose airway was underdeveloped and required a splint to hold it open. The patient underwent a CT scan and a 3-D reconstruction of the airway allowed doctors to create a virtual airway splint implant customized to fit into the small anatomy. The design included a “C”-shaped tube that had numerous holes to use as suture anchor points. The shape was designed to allow it to expand outward as the patient grew. They then 3-D printed the splint from bioresorbable plastic and implanted it in the patient. Ohye said the material it was made from is expected to dissolve within three to four years. The Finnish dental equipment maker Planmeca recently introduced a 3-D printer that allows dental laboratories and large clinics to create dental splints, models and surgical guides. In the near future, the Planmeca Creo printer will also support the creation of intricate, customized temporary fillings.The jump to printing full organs to transplant is much more complex, but the groundwork is being laid. Ohye said engineered heart tissue created using cardiac stem cells has already been created, but it is limited to a size of about 200 microns. Anything larger requires blood vessels to keep the cells alive, he explained. 3-D Printing of Biological Tissue ImplantsResearch is being conducted to enable 3-D printing of blood vessels, where cells are deposited by the robotically driven printer in patterns that build up layer-by-layer to create a lumen. That same concept is being tested at a few centers to create 3-D printed heart valves. Ohye said the process currently being investigated uses a printed matrix of biocompatible material, in which stem cells can then be deposited. If the process can be worked out to create engineered, printed organs, these might be used to create benchtop model organs for new drug testing in the next few years. Implantable 3-D printed living organs for transplant into human patients are also a very real possibility.“Bioprinting is likely to be a huge field for the future of medicine,” said Roger Markwald, Ph.D., director, Cardiovascular Developmental Biology Center, Medical University of South Carolina. He is involved with The South Carolina Project for Organ Biofabrication, one of the groups at the forefront of 3-D bioprinting research. He explained there are too few organ donors to meet demand, and there is an even greater need for soft tissues for reconstructive surgeries for things such as injuries, burns, infections, tumor resections and congenital malformations. “There are too few organ donors to meet the needs,” Markwald said. “At least 21 people die each day because of the lack of implants.” This organ shortage might be solved in the future by bioprinting organs on-demand. Biomaterials can be printed using current technology, but there is a fatal flaw. “The Achilles heel of tissue engineering today is the need to create vascularity in the structure, and that has been the focus of what we have been trying to do,” Markwald said. The key to printing vascularizable micro-organs may involve chemical modifications of alginate hydrogels. Markwald’s lab created an oxidized alginate, which is biodegradable and provides stability for 3-D bioprinting. It also is bioactive, allowing cells to migrate and remodel. They created “plug and play” molds to prepare micro-organ constructs for surgical implantation. These are made with the biodegradable alginate, which contain small molecules to promote host vascular in-growth and suppress inflammatory responses. Bioprinting is enabled using a “biopaper” made of bioresorbable hydrogels. These allow printing of the cells against gravity and allow the cells to grow, interact and function physiologically. Markwald said research is leading to the development of hydrogels specific to each type of organ tissue.The “bioink” is made from 300 micron diameter spheroids that contain between 8,000-12,000 autologous adipose-derived stem cells. He said it takes about 7 million cells to make 840 spheroids, and it takes thousands of these spheroids to print a 1 mm cube.Just as 3-D printing allows simultaneous printing of several different colors of materials to build a color 3-D model, bioprinting is being developed to allow use of several different cell types to create complex tissue units.“Eventually we will be able to make functional hearts or livers,” Markwald said. “What we can print right now are cardiac patches and small- to medium-sized blood vessels, skin tissue, soft tissue (adipose, muscle) for reconstructive surgery, and vascularized micro-organs that can be grown in a bioreactor and used to supplement the function of a diseased organ like the liver.”Creating 3-D Printable FilesCreating files for 3-D printing from medical imaging datasets starts with good imaging, said Shuai Leng, Ph.D., associate professor of medical physics, Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minn. “If you start with garbage in, you get garbage out, so you need good image quality,” he stressed. To create a usable 3-D file, he suggests using 0.6 mm thin imaging slices. This allows for very smooth surfaces. By comparison, he said use of 6 mm slices will make the printed object very rough and textured, appearing pixelated, when it is printed in 3-D.He said dual-energy CT is great for 3-D printing because it can easily exclude bone so only blood vessels or soft tissue remain in the image area. Metal implants commonly cause problems when creating 3-D printing files, but dual-energy systems have metal artifact reduction software to separate the metal and artifacts from the anatomy to allow creation of better models.When using 3-D models for procedural planning and navigation, you need to ensure the precision of the model by using U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared 3-D printing software. The resulting printed models also should be compared to the original images to ensure quality control. Before printing, images should be checked in three planes and approved by a radiologist or the ordering physician.The final imaging files are converted into STL/CAD files that can be read by the 3-D printers and translated into the final 3-D object.Legal Considerations Regarding 3-D printingThe field of 3-D printing comes with a new set of legal questions hospitals using the technology will need to consider, said Bruce Kline, a technology licensing manager who oversees patents for new technology developed at Mayo Clinic. For starters, he said the STL files printers use are a lot like MP3 music files, in that they can be protected under copyright and require licensing to use. Copyright violations can occur if a purchased STL anatomical model file for rare disease is illegally shared with another institution that did not purchase the file from the vendor that created the it.Under the law, if a device has a functional use it falls under patent law. If it is not functional, it falls under copyright law. Kline said most medical 3-D printing for educational models and complex anatomy evaluation currently falls under copyright. But, he said that will rapidly change in the coming years as customizable 3-D printable medical devices see wider use.Additive manufacturing allows the creation of patient-specific devices at the point of care. Kline said an interesting fact is that these devices are FDA 510(k)-exempt if produced by a hospital instead of a medical device vendor. He said this blurs the lines between traditional vendor relationships, since the hospital can now become the manufacturer. However, if a hospital makes a device, it also becomes liable for it. He advised that it might be better for a commercial vendor to make the device for the hospital so the vendor assumes the liability of the device. Custom-made medical devices are also exempt under FDA regulations, Kline said. So, if a physician creates or modifies a device to meet the clinical needs of a specific patient’s anatomy, he said it is acceptable to use under current FDA rules. This may leave the door wide open for use of 3-D printed devices that are customized for each patient using their own 3-D imaging datasets.It is possible printable device files may become available in the next few years to customize and print on demand. However, Kline said it will be much more difficult to enforce patents on these types of devices. He explained if someone makes one or two devices, there is no economical way for the creator of those device files to go after the user/maker of unlicensed copies of the device to claim lost profits.Currently, Kline said surgical planning models created with 3-D printing are not reimbursable. No CPT code exists for their use, because he said CPT codes are based on clinical trial data showing clinical efficacy to justify reimbursement.Proposed FDA Guidance for 3-D PrintingIn May, the FDA released the draft guidance “Technical Considerations for Additive Manufactured Devices,” for public comment. It is a leapfrog guidance document to provide FDA’s initial thoughts on technical considerations specific to 3-D printed devices. Specifically, this draft guidance outlines technical considerations associated with additive manufacturing processes, and the testing and characterization for final finished devices fabricated using 3-D printing. It is intended to serve as a mechanism by which the agency can share initial thoughts regarding the content of premarket submissions for emerging technologies and new clinical applications that are likely to be of public health importance very early in product development. The draft document was created following a fall 2014 workshop where 3-D printing experts discussed all the facets of 3-D printing and attempted to anticipate the issues and questions that will be raised as 3-D printable devices begin to come before the FDA for review in the coming years.The FDA notes that in medical device applications, 3-D printing has the advantage of facilitating the creation of anatomically matched devices and surgical instrumentation by using a patient’s own medical imaging. The FDA said another advantage is the ease in fabricating complex geometric structures, allowing the creation of engineered open lattice structures, tortuous internal channels and internal support structures that would not be easily made or possible using traditional manufacturing approaches.However, the FDA stated the unique aspects of the printing process, such as the layer-wise fabrication and the relative lack of history of medical devices manufactured using 3-D printing techniques, pose challenges in determining optimal characterization and assessment methods for the final finished device. There are also questions as to the optimal process validation and verification methods for these devices. The FDA is gathering public feedback on the draft document through August 2016. The draft document can be found online at www.fda.gov/ucm/groups/fdagov-public/@fdagov-meddev-gen/documents/document/ucm499809.pdf.Partnerships Make 3-D More AccessibleThe setup and maintenance costs for 3-D printing are more complex than many hospitals want to get involved with. This is especially true at centers where there is very limited application, and has led to partnerships between advanced imaging vendors and 3-D printer vendors to create contract services for one-off printing projects.Advanced visualization software company Vital Images announced a partnership with 3-D printer company Stratasys at the RSNA 2015 annual meeting. They created the industry’s first print-on-demand service using Vital’s Vitrea advanced visualization software and Stratasys’ 3-D printing services. Vital Images’ software takes patient scans and converts them into STL files that can be sent directly to a 3-D printer, improving workflow efficiency and 3-D printing accessibility.GE Healthcare is working with 3-D printer vendor Materialise to develop a software package that will allow the easy creation of 3-D printable files from GE 3-D ultrasound sound systems. GE hopes to have commercial product launch for this technology later in 2016.Materialise already offers its Mimics Innovation Suite software to create 3-D printer files from medical imaging. Its latest version includes the ability to create images not only from MRI and CT datasets, but also from fluoroscopic imaging from C-arms. It also includes a virtual X-ray tool to allow engineers to create projects to find the optimal angle for 2-D/3-D registration. This allows for an evaluation of the 3-D position of bones and implants without a post-operative CT or MRI scan. It has an automated heart segmentation tool to easily separate the cardiovascular anatomy for advanced research and analyses. The vendor said on a good quality dataset, segmentation now requires only a few mouse clicks rather than several hours of tedious work. FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s.
