National blood shortage prompts call for dog donors at clinics in Alberta

first_imgEDMONTON – Parker is not yet five years old and has been giving blood regularly for nearly three of them.“He just gave his 12th donation,” said Hans Granholm of Edmonton.What makes Parker’s altruism unusual is that he’s a happy-go-lucky giant schnauzer mix. The rescue dog, which had to go through a series of tests to make sure he was eligible to donate, doesn’t seem to mind the donor sessions at all.“He’s quite a clown,” owner Granholm said with a laugh. “He’s the only dog I’ve ever met that actually smiles.“When we go in there, he just goes around and smiles to all of the girls and all of the technicians. He’s just quite a clown.”Parker, who is 4 1/2, is one of the regular donors at Edmonton’s NAIT clinic, which recently put out a call for more dogs.“Our donor pool depleted quite dramatically,” said Beth Knight, laboratory director at the Canadian Animal Blood Bank in Winnipeg. “It’s one of those challenges.”Any dog blood donated at clinics across Canada goes into the bank for use by veterinarians when a dog is recovering after surgery or from diseases such as cancer. Cats and other pets can also donate blood, but it’s a much more complicated procedure and they aren’t part of the same program.Canine donors must meet several requirements, but the clinics are always on the lookout for “sweet-natured” dogs.Knight said the clinics don’t ask too many personal questions.“We do ask about bites and fights,” she said.They also need to know about any health problems, so they take a small blood sample, she added.“Once the donor has passed these little hurdles, we give them a great big hug and ask them to lie down on the table.”A total of 450 millilitres of blood, the same volume that would be taken from a human, is drawn with a needle from the dog’s jugular vein after the area is shaved and prepared.“It takes two to three minutes,” Knight said.Each dog is different.“We have both the yin and yang of donors,” said Knight. “Some love coming; some are glad to leave. Others think they are going to get their nails trimmed, so they panic until they have this big needle in their jugular and then they totally relax.“It’s like, ‘Oh, this is what we’re doing.’”She said dogs typically recover more quickly than people after giving blood.“Every lab owner wants the dog to be slower and that will never happen,” she said. “Their head and their heart are at the same level, and their ability to recover from a blood loss is managed more easily than you and I.”There are seven major blood groups in dogs. Greyhounds, German shepherds, pit bulls and Weimaraners are more likely to have the type that’s considered universal.Each donation helps up to three dogs.Doggie donors must be between one and eight years old, weigh at least 25 kilograms and be up to date on their vaccinations.They receive free blood products — if ever required — a tag, a bandana and a free microchip after the second donation.Granholm, who has been bringing in his dogs to donate since 2004, said he regularly urges other owners to take their dogs to give blood.“It’s the same as a human giving blood,” he said. “You’re doing a service to others.”Parker gets an added bonus after he donates.“Oh yeah, he gets a treat afterward.”last_img read more

Renzi challenges Italys Democrats over support for 5Stars

first_imgROME – Former Italian Premier Matteo Renzi on Tuesday challenged members of his defeated Democrats to publicly declare if they’ll support the populist 5-Star Movement, throwing down the gauntlet as he tries to prevent his party from fracturing and backing its political nemesis.Analysts say he has reason to worry. Given both the numbers and ideologies, a 5-Star government supported by elements of the Democratic Party may be the most stable and logical solution to Italy’s inconclusive elections.Renzi has said he would resign as party chair given the Democratic Party’s disastrous showing of less than 23 per cent of the vote — the worst result ever for the left.And he pledged the Democrats wouldn’t align with either the 5-Stars, which emerged from the election as the single-biggest party with 32 per cent of the vote, or the centre-right coalition, led by the anti-immigrant League, with 37 per cent.In a Facebook message Tuesday that suggested defections were a real threat, Renzi reminded his supporters that both the 5-Stars and the League “represent the opposite of our values.”“They’re anti-European, anti-political and have used a language of hatred,” Renzi wrote. “They said we were corrupt, mafiosi, and that we have blood on our hands because of immigration. I don’t think they’ve changed their mind overnight.”“For me, the Democratic Party has to be where the people put us: in the opposition,” Renzi wrote. “If anyone from our party thinks otherwise, let him or her say so,” either in an upcoming party meeting or in Parliament.The success of the 5-Stars, a grassroots internet-based movement that only was launched nine years ago, came in great part at the expense of the Democrats, including in their onetime stronghold of Emilia-Romagna in northern Italy.Researchers at the Bologna-based Cattaneo Institute, analyzing data from a select number of cities, concluded that of the 2.6 million voters the Democrats lost since the 2013 general election, “relevant numbers” went to the 5-Stars, as well as to a lesser degree the League and a new left-wing party.“All this indicates that the 5-Stars are the Democrats’ competitors, offering electors a ‘truer’ left than that embodied by a leader like Renzi,” the researchers said.As a result, analysts say, Renzi has reason to be concerned about the rank-and-file’s intentions.“I always start from the numbers. And the numbers tell me there are not many coalitions available,” said Roberto D’Alimonte, a political scientist at Rome’s LUISS University. “Today it looks very strange. But after a few weeks of useless searching, I think … it won’t look so strange.”Paolo Magri, director of the ISPI think-tank in Milan, said precisely because many of the 5-Stars’ new voters hailed previously from the Democratic Party, “a tie-up with the (Democrats) is more acceptable than with the League.”“The 5-Star program is so malleable that it allows different readings,” he told The Associated Press. “The legitimate choice of the 5-Stars was to water down themes more crucial to the program so they would be appealing to both ends of the spectrum.”The 5-Stars call themselves a grassroots “direct democracy” movement, with members voting for candidates and platforms via its online platform. The 5-Stars defy typical left-right ideology, espousing a platform that is green and anti-bank, and for the campaign, included a proposed monthly payment to Italians just for being citizens.The 5-Stars have evolved since the last parliamentary election when they refused to deal with any party, and want to become “the new establishment,” D’Alimonte said.“From anti-establishment to new establishment, and they want to gain credibility,” which they can do more effectively with the Democrats than with the extremists of the League, D’Alimonte said.Indeed, while both the League and the 5-Stars often share the euroskeptic and populist monikers, such labels paper over their differences.“The League is ideologically euroskeptical. The 5-Stars are tactically euroskeptical,” Magri said.Silvio Berlusconi, the three-time premier who dominated Italian politics for the past quarter century, was left in the dust of the election aftermath. In a major upset, his Forza Italia party came in second to the League within the centre-right.In his first comments since the election outcome, the 81-year-old Berlusconi said the results would have been different if he hadn’t been prevented from running as a candidate because of a tax fraud conviction. But he insisted he was still the head of Forza Italia, the “director of the centre-right and the guarantor of the cohesiveness of the coalition.”___Colleen Barry contributed from Milan.last_img read more

Proud to have guided a generation of knowledge seekers

first_imgA trailblazer, a visionary leader, social worker, and first-generation entrepreneur, Vikash Kumar Singh broke new ground by introducing professional education for the ‘weaker sections’ in India.Born in a family of Indian Air Force, Singh not just had the opportunity to travel extensively across the country and pick up multifarious skills, languages, and interests, he also had the zeal to do things differently, the passion to excel, the conviction to break frees and the will to achieve. Also Read – An income drop can harm brainIn 2008, Singh realised that there is a huge gap in the education system, right from the grass root level (toddlers onwards). The need for proper mentoring and education at an early stage among the toddlers prompted him and his team to study the parameter to bridge the gap and that start an institution involving tiny tots and toddlers. Today this institution ‘Genius Kids’ is considered to be one of the best in making a solid foundation for tiny tots during their formative years, thereby enabling them to become compatible and competitive.

Vikash is a first generation entrepreneur having no family background in business or entrepreneurship. Sharing his mantra of success, he says, “The flavour of success lies in your conviction to break free, your passion to excel and your will to achieve. Proper utilisation of time to generate goodwill and create social impact is entrepreneurship for me.” “I belong to a middle-class family and hence I was not born with a silver spoon in mouth. I started my journey with nothing except a dream. But, today when I turn back and see that more than 10,000 dreams have become a manifest reality with our institution, I feel proud of it. I take pride in having guided an entire generation of knowledge seekers. I have done a bit for the society at the age of 41 and wish to do a lot more in the future.”last_img read more

Common issues different stages

first_imgSwitching from a liberal outfit claiming to be devoted to serving people since generations to a right-wing Hindu nationalist party might seem like a startling turn of events (or perhaps not so!) for a politician; but upon a second look, without seeing this through the prism of politics but as a very common phenomenon, this is the plight of another woman fed up with the offending patriarchal method of functioning at her workplace. All India Congress Committee Convenor and National Spokesperson Priyanka Chaturvedi quit the Grand Old Party, expressing dissatisfaction with the party on Wednesday for reinstating some leader who had misbehaved with her at a press briefing in 2015, and two days later on Friday, she joined Shiv Sena in Mumbai. Not only has Priyanka Chaturvedi been vocal about matters of women empowerment and safety, she makes her mark by standing out with her articulate assertions about what she upholds. And of course, she did pay the price for it from time to time – the way it happens in the advanced, modern world with social media just a click away – trolls and abuse would pour in, her family was publicly threatened, even some party leaders (from Congress) attacked her. Initially suspended by the party, their reinstatement is what made Ms. Chaturvedi feel let down by Congress. “I realised that I will fail several women if I continue”, she said at a press conference. Indeed, this resonates with a lot of women who intend to work sincerely and diligently but preconceived notions pertaining to their womanhood invariably eclipse their capacity and performance. Also Read – A compounding difficultyThe other prominent reason for her to walk out was being denied an election ticket from Mumbai (it went to Bollywood actor Urmila Matondkar) “Yes, I wanted a ticket but I knew it would not lead to bitterness if the decision didn’t come my way. The reason has been that when we talk of women empowerment, we need to live by them.” She is quoted as saying. Some clear dynamics we see here is that irrespective of the stage of performance, the story of a lesser-star employee (particularly if it is a woman) is roughly the same everywhere. Regardless of how effective a person might be in terms of work, they are essentially a means to further some cause of the organisation under the brand of which they perform. A political party is no exception – before being an instrument of democracy, it is an organisation the top priority of which is its own survival, secondarily, its people. Women-centric method of functioning comes with the purpose of marketing an idea for ulterior gains. Not to defeminise, but women need to be treated as individuals based on their competence and set an example of a level playing field. At its root, Priyanka’s walkout is more of a social matter than a political one.last_img read more

What Happened To The Seahawks Rushing Game

Logan Stieber returning to Ohio State as a coach

OSU’s Logan Stieber (right) wrestles with North Carolina State’s Kevin Jack in a 141-pound semifinal during the NCAA Division I Wrestling Championships on March 20 in St. Louis.Credit: Courtesy of TNSOhio State wrestling coach Tom Ryan announced that Logan Stieber will be returning to the Steelwood Training Center after the Olympic Trials in April.Only this time, the most decorated wrestler in OSU history will be setting up residence as a member of the coaching staff.The addition of Stieber will now give a total of six national titles, seven NCAA finals appearances and 11 All-American honors to the coaching staff for the Buckeyes.Stieber earned four national championships, 119 victories and a Hodge Trophy as the nation’s most outstanding wrestler during his career with the Scarlet and Gray. All of those marks were firsts by an OSU wrestler.“I am very excited to be joining the Buckeye staff next year,” Stieber said in a press release. “I love Ohio State, so it’s a dream come true that I can start my coaching career here as well as pursue my Olympic dreams.”After enjoying incredible success while in high school at Monroeville High School, where he won four state titles, Stieber came to OSU and helped the Buckeyes earn their first team title in the team’s 94-year existence in the 2014-15 season.Ryan expressed his excitement for the return of Stieber to OSU and what the return means for the team.“Logan has been a tremendous example here as a student-athlete,” Ryan said in the release. “He completed one of the most illustrious careers in both Ohio high school history and NCAA history by winning four Big Ten and NCAA championships while leading the Buckeyes to our first team title.”Ryan said Stieber’s contributions to the Buckeyes have been more than anyone else in the program’s history, and he expects him to be a great influence to the wrestlers he will coach.“I am excited for the current and future student-athletes that will have the opportunity to learn from Logan,” Ryan said.Ryan also made a note of the importance of volunteer coach Ross Thatcher had on the victory, expressing how much of a powerhouse he believes his coaching staff is.“(Thatcher) had a tremendous influence on bringing our first NCAA team title to Ohio State as well as he mentored our upper weights, especially Nick Heflin and Kyle Snyder,” Ryan said.The Scarlet and Gray wrestling facility will now boast an Olympian (Tervel Dlagnev), a World champion (sophomore Kyle Snyder) and a four-time NCAA champion (Stieber).Those accolades just so happen to make the wrestling room for the Buckeyes the only one with these kind of credentials in the NCAA.After winning a national championship last year and getting off to a 6-2 start this year, it would appear the Buckeyes are looking to build a collegiate dynasty in wrestling with the addition of Stieber, along with the experience of other coaches.After finishing second in the 165-pound class at the U.S. Senior Nationals, Stieber will be attending the U.S. Olympic Team Trials from April 8 to 10 in the hopes of joining the Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro. Stieber’s younger brother, Hunter, is also a member of the OSU team, but, as he is currently a redshirt senior, he will not be coached by his brother. read more

Mens Hockey No 15 Ohio State to face rival No 17 Michigan

Ohio State’s junior-forward Mason Jobst (26) steals the puck away from Notre Dame’s sophomore forward Mike O’Leary (19) during a Big Ten conference matchup at the Schottenstein Center on November 3, 2017 in Columbus, Ohio. OSU lost 1-4. Credit: Alex Hulvalchick | For the LanternThe No. 15 Ohio State men’s hockey team (6-3-3, 1-3-0-0 in Big Ten) will travel to Ann Arbor, Michigan, after an off week to face off against No. 17 Michigan (6-4-2, 2-2-2-1 in Big Ten) in a battle between one of the nation’s best offenses and the Buckeyes’ shutdown defense.The Wolverines are tied for third in the nation in scoring offense at 3.83 goals per game, which includes putting in 11 goals in a series against then-No. 4 Minnesota. That series ended in an 5-4 overtime win and a 6-6 shootout loss for Michigan. Minnesota ranks in the top 10 in scoring defense, allowing only 2.29 goals per game.The Buckeyes match the impressive offensive numbers with a scoring defense that is also tied for third in the country, allowing only two goals per game. Head coach Steve Rohlik said  the success is more about his own team performing well than preparing specifically for the opponent.“It’s about our detail, it’s five-man defense five-man offense and that’s what we’ve been stressing all year,” Rohlik said. “It’s about how we play and what we do, we know how good they are, we know what they can do, and again it’s about us going out there and executing our game plan.”Senior forward Tony Calderone is Michigan’s most powerful scorer this season, netting 10 goals on just 44 shots, good for fifth in the NCAA. Michigan’s key playmaker all year has been sophomore forward Cooper Marody, who is fourth in the nation with 20 points, and tied for second with 16 assists.“They can beat you with a lot of different guys and certainly guys like [Calderone] have been putting points up on the board, again I think it’s just about our team defense, it’s not about one guy, it’s about our five guys on the ice,” Rohlik said.Michigan changed head coaches for the first time in 33 years this offseason with the retirement of former NHL player Red Berenson. Berenson led the Wolverines to 11 NCAA Final Fours and two national championships. He was replaced by Mel Pearson, who was Berenson’s assistant coach from 1987-2011.“As a young coach being able to stand there and look down at a legendary Hall-of-Famer in Red, it’s almost like every game you walk away going ‘that’s unbelievable,’” Rohlik said. “Certainly Red’s missed … but Mel’s doing a heck of a job up there.”The Ohio State-Michigan rivalry transcends every sport, and hockey is no exception. Most games within this matchup are filled with big hits and trash talking. In a game last season, the bad blood escalated into a massive fight after an 8-6 Michigan victory last season.Michigan has won 11 of the 18 matchups against Ohio State in the past five seasons, but the Buckeyes have won five of the past eight meetings against their rivals.“We don’t like those guys and we know that they don’t like us,” junior forward Dakota Joshua said. “I think it’s really cut throat and we really take those games to another level.”Joshua is one of five Ohio State players born in Michigan, and he said there is an added intensity to perform in his home state.“Switching over sides, coming down to Ohio State was a big deal, and going back to Michigan there’s always some extra pride, extra chip on your shoulder that you want to stick it to them and prove them wrong.”This weekend series is the first of two the teams will share this season. With both teams teetering on the edge of the USCHO rankings week after week, these games may mean more than ever when when determining which teams make the NCAA tournament at the end of the year.Puck drop is set at 6:30 p.m. Friday and at 7:30 p.m. Saturday at the Yost Ice Arena in Ann Arbor, Michigan. The Friday game will be shown live on Big Ten Network. read more

Police and Home Affairs investigating prison assault

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, April 25, 2017 – Grand Turk – The Ministry of Home Affairs late today confirmed that there is now a full investigation launched into the alleged sexual assault of a prison warden and that female guard has been given leave as she recuperates from the attack.Police today also confirmed the incident around 2:30 pm on Monday, where the prison officer was punched in the mouth.  Their report also said the inmate, who was stopped and beaten by other inmates was carried away from the prison in a apparent unconscious state.The Ministry is seemingly unprepared to discuss procedure to protect female guards or offer clarity as to why the Cockburn Town Medical Center could not accommodate both reportedly injured individuals simultaneously.  The family revealed that the officer was forced to wait at the Police Station for hours, being interviewed and was reportedly told that she could not attend doctor while the inmate was being treated at the hospital.Relatives reported that they considered this move to be further insult to injury of their already traumatized loved one.  What the Ministry was ready to say is that the officer has been given leave of absence, offered medical care and counseling.Further comments, said the media release from Home Affairs, would come at the conclusion of the probe.#MagneticMedianews#femaleguardattackedinGTprison#inmatesrescueprisonguardfromattack Related Items:#femaleguardattackedinGTprison, #inmatesrescueprisonguardfromattack, #magneticmedianews Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApplast_img read more

Scott Sinclair condemns racial abuse supports need to kick it out

first_imgCeltic winger Scott Sinclair believes racism is becoming acute in football and should be exposed and kicked out and never to be ignored.Earlier this month, Sinclair was subject of racial abuse but was defended by his club’s coach Brendan Rodgers and thanked the winger for handling the case maturely.Sinclair condemned football racism and adds that football should adopt a zero-tolerance approach to racial abuse.“It’s unacceptable, not just in football or sport but in society generally,” said the 29-year-old via Scotsman.“I think it needs to be kicked out. It needs to stop and to be shown that it’s unacceptable to use racial slurs or to abuse the ethnicity of players.“The cup final incident was on social media. I was flicking through some things and came across it.Leicester City, Manchester UnitedMatch Preview: Manchester United vs Leicester City Boro Tanchev – September 13, 2019 Old Trafford is the venue for the Premier League encounter between Manchester United and Leicester City, which kicks off at 16:00 (CET) on Saturday.“It’s one of those things that just shouldn’t be happening. It’s 2018.”“This is what I don’t understand,” he added“When I tweeted I called them uneducated and that’s what they are. They are uneducated in this area; they have black players in their team so it’s very confusing.“Why would someone use that sort of slur towards black players? It’s embarrassing. It’s not acceptable for anyone in society to even think they can use that sort of language, whether they are at a football game or in the street. But it’s always around and it’s such a shame to keep hearing the racial slurs.“I think there’s more of a spotlight on racial abuse now, especially with [Manchester City’s] Raheem Sterling experiencing it down south and speaking out,” he said.last_img read more

There is no chance of finding Sala alive says rescuer

first_imgJohn Fitzgerald, director of operations of Channel Airline Airsearch, says the small plane where the Argentinean was traveling might have sunk in less than three minutes.After it was publicly known that a small plane carrying two people disappeared in the English Channel, authorities started looking for survivors.On the plane, Argentinean footballer and recent Cardiff City signing Emiliano Sala was traveling together with the pilot of the aircraft.“If they really are in the water, I would say there is no chance of finding them alive,” said Fitzgerald to Vía País in Argentina.“The other day I went swimming (on the English Channel) and only lasted for three minutes.”“It is very cold in these waters; one person could stay there an hour at the most. I do not think they have landed on land because air traffic would have been informed,” he explained.Sala recently signed for Cardiff City in the English Premier League, after he spent four years with French Ligue A club Nantes.Raheem Sterling, EnglandTop 5 best players from the international break weekend Tomás Pavel Ibarra Meda – September 11, 2019 After a fresh international break just came to an end, we need to talk about the Top 5 best players during this whole weekend.We…“I was especially cold. In the first part of the investigation last night, the visibility was good, but we had to deal with the freezing rain that fell around 23.30,” Fitzgerald added.“As the investigation progressed, the cloud ceiling dropped and we had to stop the investigation.”“What we’re looking for first is the device’s black box. If the plane really crashed into the sea but remained in one piece, then you have to pay attention to the traces of oil that come to the surface,” he continued.“If it broke in flight, which can not be ruled out, for one reason or another, then we will find debris on the surface.

Alaska LNG Community Meeting

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Alaska LNG Project Team is hosting a community meeting on Wednesday, June 20, at the Nikiski Recreation Center to present the final decision on the Kenai Spur Highway reroute. Jesse Carlstrom Communications Manager with the Alaska Gasline Development Corporation: “The team, at Alaska Gasline Development Corporation, is extremely sensitive to the fact that the Kenai Spur Highway Reroute will impact residents and Alaskans throughout the Kenai and specifically Nikiski area. Nikiski residents will be the very first to know about the selected reroute.”  The AGDC in April 2017 provided the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) with a site map of the proposed LNG plant in Nikiski, showing locations for the three liquefaction trains, two LNG storage tanks, material offloading facility and north and south plant entrances. The meeting will begin at 6:00 p.m., with an Open House followed by a presentation at 7:00 p.m.center_img Following the site map, the AGDC filed a map of possible alternatives for relocating the Kenai Spur Highway around the LNG plant site to FERC. According to Carlstrom the AGDC has not submitted the final selected route to FERC: “It’s extremely important to us to let residents be the first to know about the selected reroute. So, that’s why we (AGDC) have not submitted this proposed reroute alternative to regulatory agencies, specifically the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission that is overseeing the Alaska LNG project, we will let the public know first.”last_img read more

Study How Successful are Journalism Grads After Graduation

first_imgThe University of Georgia has released its annual survey measuring the success of journalism and mass communications majors in finding jobs after graduation. The study found that about three out of four of those with bachelor’s degrees had successfully found employment upon graduation.Just a few months after graduation, on the benchmark date of Oct. 31, the survey found that 56 percent of bachelor’s degree recipients had a full-time job, a slight improvement from 53.3 percent the previous year. This can be compared to 56.6 percent of master’s degree recipients who had a full-time job on the same benchmark date. The success for bachelor’s recipients continued to increase six to eight months after graduation, with 65.6 percent of graduates securing full-time jobs.However, not all of these opportunities were in the field of the respondents’ majors. About 60 percent of bachelor’s degree recipients held jobs in the field of communications six to eight months after graduation, an increase from the previous year.Bachelor’s degree recipients who found full-time work earned an average of $32,000 in 2012, compared to $31,000 a year earlier. This increase was sufficient to offset the effects of a relatively modest inflation. By comparison, master’s degree recipients with full-time jobs earned an average of $40,000 in 2012, the same as in 2011. The study also found that journalism and communications graduates were more successful compared to others in the 20-24 year old age group. Journalism graduates had about a 10 percent unemployment rate, while the unemployment rate of the entire U.S. Labor Force aged 20-24 years old with bachelor’s degrees was about 14 percent.The report stated that about a quarter of the bachelor’s degree recipients said that they regretted studying journalism and communications, similar to the past.More female graduates reported having a full-time job than men in 2012, which has been the case historically. Also, bachelor’s degree recipients of racial and ethnic minority backgrounds had more difficulty finding work than other graduates. This gap has been consistent over time and was nearly the same as the previous year. Those minorities who were able to find a job were much less likely to find one in the field of communications than graduates who were not members of minority groups.last_img read more
