(Photo by Zachariah Hughes/Alaska Public Media)The Republican Governors Association is buying TV advertisements to help elect new nominee for governor Mike Dunleavy. After Dunleavy’s primary win last week, the association spent more than $200,000 for ads in Alaska.The Washington, D.C.,-based association has been buying TV ads in Alaska since the spring. It’s paying for the ads through the Alaska-based group Families for Alaska’s Future.There’s been nearly $1.7 million in total this year in ad buys from the RGA and Families for Alaska’s Future with the Anchorage and Fairbanks network affiliates. Most of the money has gone to KTUU-TV in Anchorage.“The Alaska governor’s race is a very high priority, and it’s a top pick-up opportunity for Republicans,” said Jon Thompson, spokesman for the Republican Governors Association.There are 36 gubernatorial elections this year, and the Republicans are defending seats in 26 of them. Thompson said Alaska presents a unique opportunity for the party to pick up a seat.“One, because Bill Walker has failed the state, and it’s ripe for Republican pick up, and because Mike Dunleavy is the only candidate with a clear plan to reform the state’s economy and make Alaska’s government more efficient,” Thompson said.The Republican Governors Association is dedicated to electing and supporting Republican governors. In previous years, the association has been funded by corporate donors. They included the businesses owned by prominent party donors Sheldon Adelson and the brothers Charles and David Koch.Share this story:last_img read more

An Early Look at the Huntington’s Stunning, Expanded Chinese Garden

first_imgOutdoorsGardens and Green SpacesAn Early Look at the Huntington’s Stunning, Expanded Chinese GardenWhen it opens this fall, the Huntington’s Chinese garden will be a sprawling 12 acres—and one of the largest of its kind in the worldBy Hailey Eber – June 29, 2020931ShareEmailFacebookTwitterPinterestReddItAfter this story was initially published, the Huntington announced that because of COVID-19-related delays, the revamped Chinese Garden will open in fall rather than summer. The article has been updated to reflect the timeline change.The Huntington Library, Art Museum, and Botanical Gardens has long been a lovely place to spend an afternoon. As we all start to get outside again, the institution is more vital than ever.After more than a year of construction, the final phase of the Chinese Garden will be complete this fall, expanding the attraction to 12 stunning acres from its initial three and a half. The garden’s curator, Phillip E. Bloom, says the expansion comes at a crucial time, with Asian Americans facing increased racism. “Anything that can inspire empathy for other cultures, particularly the culture of China, is important right now,” Bloom says.When the Huntington’s outdoor areas reopen on July 1, the Chinese Garden won’t quite be ready for its debut yet, but in the meantime, Bloom guides us through some of the key features.1. Stargazing Tower Situated at the highest point on the property, this pavilion provides an unimpeded vantage point for visitors to take in everything. ”You get a view of the whole garden, and it also looks out on to the Mount Wilson Observatory,” says Bloom. The founder of the observatory, astronomer George Ellery Hale, was a friend of Henry Huntington and was the one who convinced him to turn his library into a public institution. The tower’s name pays homage to Hale and his fellow astronomer Edwin Powell Hubble, who was a neighbor of Huntington and whose papers are part of the library’s holdings in the history of science.2. Pavilion Encircled by Jade This new café will offer a more formal dining experience than the Chinese Garden’s ever-popular dumpling and noodle house. “It will be very nice to have a full-service restaurant [with a] proper kitchen,” says Bloom.3. Reflections in the Stream and Fragrance of Orchids Pavilion “It’s one of the more tranquil spots in the garden,” says Bloom. “It’s really quite beautiful, with all sorts of flowering fruit trees.”4. Garden of Falling Petals“There are two very, very large California live oaks [200 to 300 years old] that have actually grown together into one huge tree,” says Bloom. “It’s a particularly beautiful spot.”5. Flowery Brush Library This replica of a scholar’s studio in the Ming dynasty lets visitors try their hand at calligraphy. “This kind of garden would have been constructed by [a scholar]—someone who had gone through a series of exams to become a bureaucrat … and did all sorts of calligraphy and painting and poetry,” explains Bloom. Behind it will be an art gallery (not pictured) called the Studio for Lodging the Mind.6. Bridge of the Joy of Fish Walk over water on this structure, named for a story by Taoist philosopher Zhuangzi in which two men argue about whether one can really know the happiness of a fish without being one himself. Bloom says the question “has inspired several thousand years of debates in China.”7. Pavilion of Three Friends This area is named after the Three Friends of Winter—a grouping of pine, flowering plum, and bamboo that is common in Chinese literature. “These are all plants that are seen as symbolizing resilience. Pine is evergreen; flowering plum is the first plant to bloom each spring,” often when it is snowy and other plants are still dormant; and “bamboo bends but never breaks,” says Bloom.8. Verdant Microcosm Here, visitors will enjoy tiny plants called penjing, which are similar to Japanese bonsai but are often styled as part of elaborate miniature landscapes.RELATED: 100 Fascinating Facts About the Huntington in Honor of Its 100th YearStay on top of the latest in L.A. food and culture. Sign up for our newsletters today.   TAGSHuntington LibraryThe Huntington LibraryPrevious articleIn Recent Weeks, WeHo’s Bar Scene Was Both a Glimpse at the New Normal and a Bellwether of the Second ShutdownNext articleGolden State Killer Joseph James DeAngelo Pleads Guilty to 13 Murders and Admits to Dozens of RapesGwynedd Stuart RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR100 Fascinating Facts About the Huntington in Honor of Its 100th YearCan the Los Angeles We Know Survive the Death of Its Trees?110 Ways to Become the Ultimate Angeleno in a Yearlast_img read more

The 16-month agreement to exclusive negotiations came to an end in February and a new deal could not be negotiated, leaving a question mark over the proposed 80-hectare development in Crystal Palace Park and whether it may be taken forward by a new developer. Bromley councillor Stephen Carr said:There is a major opportunity here to do something that might really improve the park and provide much-needed regeneration locally too. This was why we were prepared to properly listen to what ZhongRong had to say, but we were never going to simply say yes to absolutely anything as we need to get this right. Now, we will meet with community stakeholders, as we have done all the way along this process, to review [the] options.ZhongRong unveiled the £500m plan to rebuild the palace, which burned down in 1936, with an enthusiastic reception from Boris Johnson in 2013. The redevelopment was set to include restoration of the local park, a hotel and conference centre, visitor centre and commercial areas.

It’s been a community staple for years. In the Spring, a new group is taking over the property and revamping the 125-acre property. Some residents like Barbara Wagner, aren’t letting go that easily. Wagner said, “It’s very iconic and it’s one of the very few last remaining pieces of architecture that is from that era…from that time.”Right now, the hotel holds 319 rooms with 104 acres of green space that holds an 18-hole golf course an a 6-court tennis center.  AdvertisementRecommended ArticlesBrie Larson Reportedly Replacing Robert Downey Jr. As The Face Of The MCURead more81 commentsGal Gadot Reportedly Being Recast As Wonder Woman For The FlashRead more29 comments RELATEDTOPICS Naples soldier facing charges for wife’s murder June 16, 2021 Sea turtle caught on camera nesting on Naples beach June 16, 2021 AdvertisementTags: localnaplesnaples beach Wagner said this news was devastating.

IIROC suspends and fines advisor for various infractions

first_img Tessie Sanci The penalties relate to five infractions committed between 2008 and 2012 when Lewis was an advisor with Manulife Securities Inc. Lewis admits to contravening IIROC’s dealer member rules and his own firm’s policy when he prepared tax returns for his clients and charged a fee for that service without formally notifying or seeking written approval of his firm. Although Lewis had been providing this service since at least 2004, IIROC’s decision focuses on his actions between 2008 and 2011. During the latter time period, Lewis collected approximately $58,000 in fees for his services. The advisor also engaged in personal financial dealings with five clients between 2008 and 2012. In most cases, Lewis provided money from his own credit union account to help clients who were short on funds. In every situation, he did not obtain the approval of Manulife to help clients in this way. Lewis’ third infraction relates to his attempt to settle a client’s complaint between September and December 2011 without the approval or knowledge of his firm. Lewis also admitted to making improper use of monies from clients’ credit union accounts held outside of his firm. The settlement agreement notes that Lewis had access to approximately 75 credit union accounts held by clients who wanted access to deposit products available at that credit union but not offered through Manulife. Lewis transferred a total of more than $35,000 from different client accounts to his own account at that same credit union. This occurred on at least 40 occasions between 2008 and 2012. Lewis claimed the funds were transferred as payment for ongoing investment-counselling services. “The respondent did not obtain the clients’ consent to charge the fees and did not obtain the clients’ consent to transfer money from their credit union accounts to pay for those fees,” states the settlement agreement. “The clients say that they were not aware that any fees were being charged.” Lewis also did not seek the written approval of Manulife prior to charging those fees. Lewis’ final infraction was that he convinced clients to pre-sign blank forms between 2008 and 2012. Those forms would be completed by Lewis or on his instructions after he had received verbal instructions from a client regarding a transaction. He continued this practice even after his firm’s compliance department had warned him in or around June 2010 that the possession of pre-signed client forms was prohibited. The settlement agreement states that Lewis was first registered in the securities industry in 1988 and registered with the Investment Dealers’ Association, IIROC’s predecessor, in 1999. Lewis worked with Manulife between April 16, 2004 and April 12, 2012. It was on or around the latter date that the firm terminated him. Lewis was registered with Raymond James Ltd. after April 13, 2012, although IIROC notes that his infractions are solely related to his time with Manulife. He is currently not a registered representative with an IIROC-regulated firm. Related news PwC alleges deleted emails, unusual transactions in Bridging Finance case An Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) hearing panel has accepted a settlement agreement between Robert Lewis, an investment advisor in Vancouver, and the self-regulatory organization (SRO) requiring Lewis to pay a fine of $175,000, which includes disgorgement of fees, and costs of $20,000. Lewis has also agreed to a suspension of five years from registration in any capacity with IIROC and to strict supervision for one year should he re-register with the SRO following his suspension.

Conjoined twins from Odisha undergoes successful surgery

first_img Related Posts Menopause to become the next game-changer in global femtech solutions industry by 2025 Conjoined twins from Odisha undergoes successful surgery The twins were operated upon by doctors from AIIMSConjoined twins — Jaga and Kalia — from Odisha were successfully separated by a team of doctors at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS) in New Delhi. The 28-months-old twins, hailing from Milipada village under Phiringia block in Kandhamal district, are craniopagus conjoined twins, joined at the heads. This is a very rare condition, a senior doctor at AIIMS said.“The second phase of a marathon surgery is still underway,” said Pratap Jena, Health and Family Welfare minister, Odisha in Bhubaneswar.“After 11 hours of surgery, the heads of the conjoined twins have been separated successfully. The health condition of the children is stable. After the separation, plastic surgery experts are now working on them,” he said.Odisha Chief Minister Naveen Patnaik has congratulated the team of specialists from the institute’s neurosurgery, neuro-anaesthesia and plastic surgery departments for the successful separation of the heads.“No experts from abroad are involved in the procedure.The first phase of the surgery was performed on August 28 when the doctors created venous bypass to separate the veins shared by the babies that returns blood to the heart from the brain.“We had suggested to the AIIMS authorities to engage experts from across the world in the operation process, if needed. The Odisha government is ready to bear the expenses of the foreign doctors. We hope things will go well with the blessings of Lord Jagannath,” Jena said.Bhuyan Kanhar, the father of the twins, said, “The surgery is being done as the condition of Jaga deteriorated.”The conjoined twins were admitted to AIIMS on July 13.The Odisha government has sanctioned Rs one crore from the Chief Minister’s Relief Fund (CMRF) for the twins’ treatment.AK Mahapatra, the chief of the neurosciences centre, earlier had said the twins suffer from the condition which afflicts one in 30 lakh children, of which 50 per cent die either at birth or within 24 hours.The surgery is feasible only on 25 per cent of the survivors, while the rest continue to live with the condition.“Also, there is less than a 20 per cent chance of survival among those who undergo this surgery. Such operations are extremely challenging,” he had said.

Ultrasound technique treats prostate cancer with minimal side effects

Common treatments to the entire gland, such as surgery and radiation therapy, are effective in eliminating the cancer, but they often leave patients with incontinence and sexual dysfunction.A class of treatments called focal therapy offers an alternative for some men with intermediate-risk disease that is still confined to the prostate. In focal therapy, the cancer is ablated, or destroyed, by either heating or freezing the target tissue. Since the treatment is targeted to a small area within the prostate, side effects are generally less significant than those associated with surgery and radiation therapy.High-intensity focused ultrasound is an example of focal therapy in which an ultrasound transducer focuses sound waves to generate heat at a single point within the body and destroy the target tissue. In the past, it has been performed under ultrasound guidance, but ultrasound does not visualise the site of cancer within the prostate gland well enough to allow for a targeted approach.For the new study, researchers studied a device that delivers MRI-guided focused ultrasound (MRgFUS). While the patient is under general anaesthesia, a probe is placed in the rectum that focuses high-frequency ultrasonic waves to the site of the cancer. The procedure takes approximately four hours to perform.“By combining the high-intensity focused ultrasound device with MRI, we can target our treatment to the exact location, because we’re able to pinpoint precisely where the tumour is,” said the study’s principal investigator and lead author Sangeet Ghai, at Toronto’s Joint Department of Medical Imaging, part of the University Health Network (UHN) Sinai Health and Women’s College Hospital.Dr Ghai and colleagues from UHN and Sinai Health performed MRgFUS on 44 men with prostate cancer and tracked their outcomes using MRI, biopsies and surveys of erectile and urinary function.Treatment was successfully completed in all the men. There were no major treatment-related adverse events, and 41 of 44 participants, or 93 per cent, were disease-free at the treatment site on a five-month biopsy.Scores for erectile function and prostate symptoms were similar at baseline and five months.“The results so far have been very good,” Dr Ghai said. “We treated a smaller area using this device, yet still had very good results. At the same time the patients preserved their erectile and urinary function.”Although MRgFUS requires additional expertise, resources and cost, it has several key advantages over other approaches. Use of MRI allows for thermal feedback during treatment, an important consideration since killing the cancerous tissue requires a temperature of more than 60 degrees Celsius.“MRI almost instantaneously gives feedback as to the temperature that we’ve been able to achieve at the site,” Dr Ghai said. “If the temperature was not what I wanted to get, I can reheat that area so that chances for successful treatment increase.”An additional benefit of MRI is that it can show if there is any remaining vascularity in the treatment area, a sign that not all the cancer has been eradicated.Pending approval from the US Food and Drug Administration and Health Canada, MRgFUS has promise as an option for intermediate-risk patients who want their prostate cancer eradicated without diminishing their quality of life, a group that makes up a potentially significant number of patients. Dr Ghai estimates that of all the prostate cancer patients who go on to get surgery or radiation therapy, approximately 20 per cent to 30 per cent would be eligible for some type of focal therapy like MRgFUS.As part of the study, the researchers are reportedly collecting two-year follow-up data from all patients in the study group and plan to publish the results in another manuscript.
