UN agency issues Green Passport campaign at Berlin Tourism Fair

A ‘Green Passport’ campaign launched today at a world tourism fair aims at shrinking the environmental footprint of vacation travellers, according to the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP). The goal of the internet-based campaign, introduced at the Berlin Tourism Fair, is to raise tourists’ awareness of their ability to contribute to sustainable development by making responsible holiday choices, the agency said today in a press release. “Packing a Green Passport along with airline tickets, the swimming costume and the sun lotion means tourists no longer need to leave their green credentials at home but can make them part of the holiday of a lifetime,” UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner said at the fair. He said that tourism had great potential for development, as the world’s biggest industry. By 2020, he noted, the number of international arrivals by air and by sea could reach 1.6 billion annually. As tourist numbers grow, so will their demand for energy, water, and natural resources to support their holidays. “The challenge is to manage this growth sustainably,” Mr. Steiner said. “Governments have a key role to play, but so too do individuals and families when planning and going on holiday,” he added. Among many tips on the Green Passport website, the campaign encourages tourists to choose responsible service providers, reduce the consumption of energy in transit or in hotels and buy locally made, environmentally-friendly souvenirs. The French Ministry of Ecology, Sustainable Development and Spatial Planning, and the Brazilian Ministries of Environment and Tourism co-sponsored the campaign launch. The website, developed in English, Portuguese and French, together with additional communication tools, is available for dissemination among other partners in the tourism community, UNEP said. 7 March 2008A ‘Green Passport’ campaign launched today at a world tourism fair aims at shrinking the environmental footprint of vacation travellers, according to the United Nations Environmental Programme (UNEP). read more

Larry Drew Out Spurs Assistant In as Hawks Coach

The Atlanta Hawks completed the embarrassing handling of Larry Drew by hiring San Antonio Spurs assistant Mike Budenholzer to be their head coach, even as Drew remains under contract until the end of next month.General manager Danny Ferry, in an unprecedented maneuver,  told Drew that he could retain his job only if Ferry did not lure someone he liked better for the position. Drew, meanwhile, realized that meant he was out and has interviewed for the Milwaukee Bucks head coaching position.Budenhozler reunites with Ferry, who was an executive in San Antonio before becoming general manager of the Cleveland Cavaliers and then the Hawks. The Spurs granted permission to the Hawks to negotiate with Budenholzer during the break between their Western Conference finals victory and the start of the NBA Finals on June 6.Given the relationship between Ferry and Budenholzer and their shared philosophies under Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich, the talks moved rapidly to a conclusion on Tuesday.Drew and Houston Rockets assistant Kelvin Sampson are finalists for the Bucks head coaching job. Former Lakers assistant Steve Clifford also was a finalist, but Clifford agreed to terms with the Charlotte Bobcats for their head coaching vacancy on Monday.The Bucks are huddling this week to decide whether to expand their search to include Grizzlies head coach Lionel Hollins, who does not have a contract for next season. The Grizzlies’ season ended on Monday night with a sweep at the hands of the Spurs, who advanced to their fifth NBA Finals since drafting Tim Duncan in 1997.Ferry made a point of expanding his search beyond Budenholzer while the Spurs’ top assistant was unavailable as San Antonio was advancing through the playoffs. But in the final analysis, Ferry was most comfortable with Budenholzer as he attempts to incorporate the San Antonio way into his rebuilding project in Atlanta.The Hawks spoke with Drew, Stan Van Gundy, former Trail Blazers coach Nate McMillan and CSKA Moscow coach Ettore Messina during their search. read more

Aldridges YeniPazar looks good Karara breaks out Pumpkin Hollow goes underground Silver

first_imgLatest International Mining Project News is out (ask emma@im-mining.com), with reports on 26 prefeasibility and nine feasibility studies, 32 projects in development, three new mines that have gone into production, four existing mines that are expanding, five merger and acquisition announcements and many new appointments to new positions. There are 26 gold projects, 11 iron ore, ten copper, nine silver projects, eight covering rare earths, six uranium projects, five coal, four on nickel, three graphite projects, two projects on potash, cobalt, tantalum, and PGMs, and one project each on mineral sands, zirconium, lithium, niobium, vanadium, titanium, ilmenite, base metals, tin, feldspar, organoclay, manganese, zinc, and diamonds in the news. This fortnightly project watch is a great way of keeping up to date with your peers – other mining companies, other consultants or other engineering companies. These issues build into a global mine project overview. If you are a supplier – it is full of potential sales leads. There are results of the feasibility study for Aldridge Minerals’ Yenipazar gold and polymetallic VMS deposit in central Turkey (see International Mining April magazine). “The results of the study confirm our view that Yenipazar is a highly attractive project with robust economics that validates the effort we have made to advance Yenipazar since the Preliminary Economic Assessment of 2010,” commented Aldridge’s President & CEO Mario Caron. “The strong results pave the way for the completion of additional technical work while we advance the project financing and enter the development stage in the coming months.”Commissioning of primary and secondary crushers is underway at the Karara iron ore concentrator in Western Australia. Only two of nine remaining areas await commissioning. The concentrator is currently operating at some 70% capacity: on track to achieve 8 Mt/y by the end of April 2013. To date 46 iron ore shipments have been completed with more than 2.7 Mt shipped since start-up in October 2012, of which five shipments were magnetite. The official opening of Karara project to be held on April 9.Nevada Copper has closed a $200 million senior secured loan facility and copper concentrate off-take agreement with RK Mine Finance. Proceeds will be used for construction of Nevada Copper’s underground mining operation at its 100% owned Pumpkin Hollow copper project located near Yerington, Nevada. The project development consists of a 60,000 t/d open pit operation; and a 7,500 t/d underground operation, feeding a single 67,500 t/d concentrator. First production targeted for mid-2015, with a current mine life of 18 years. The project has Proven and Probable Mineral Reserves estimated at 4,290 Mlb of copper; 952,000 oz of gold and 27.3 Moz of silver on the basis of drill data up to October 2010. Life-of-Mine metal production contained in concentrates totals 3,830 Mlb of copper, 641,917 oz of gold and 15.37 Moz of silver.Silver Lake Resources is developing a second gold mining operation with multiple mines feeding a central processing facility at the Murchison gold project located 600 km north of Perth. The Murchison gold project has a current resource of 20.5 Mt at 2.9 g/t Au. The base case production plan has ore being sourced from 14 open pit and four underground mines at various stages over an eight to 10 year mine life. The design of the gold processing facility has made allowance for the later addition of a base metals grinding and recovery circuit for potentially processing feed from the Eelya Complex. Much of the mill commissioning has been completed.Atlatsa Resources’ Joel Kesler, Chief Commercial Officer reports that the new Bokoni mine operating plan includes lower-cost, open-pit project opportunities, “which will enable Bokoni to fill its installed processing capacity in the near term, whilst underground mining operations build up to 160,000 t/month, again in a low-risk and less capital intensive manner. Capital expenditure of some R2.3 billion associated with UG2 expansions at Bokoni mine have been deferred, thereby reducing the anticipated debt burden for the company through to 2020. As a result, Bokoni mine will become a predominantly Merensky reef producer, accounting for 70% of total estimated production.”Western Australia-focused uranium developer, Toro Energy has welcomed the Federal Government decision granting environmental approval for its wholly owned and advanced Wiluna uranium project in Western Australia. It was the last major environment-based regulatory approval required to clear the way for the proposed A$269 million Wiluna uranium mine to become Australia’s sixth uranium producer and the first in Western Australia.  Toro anticipates first production from the Wiluna mine by the end of 2015.Atrum Coal announced a significant upgrade to the coal resources at its Groundhog anthracite project in British Columbia, Canada. JORC compliant resources at Groundhog increased by 460% to a global coal resource of 1,570 Mt across Measured (16 Mt), Indicated (553 Mt) and Inferred (998 Mt) categories. This confirms Groundhog as one of the largest undeveloped high grade anthracite deposits in the world.There is much more useful information in this 50+ page newsletter.last_img read more

TOP 10 handball failed operations in 20092010 Ola Sead and other big

Hardest work is behind us. When you are judging about best players and coaches is much easier than you have to choose handball people, who didn’t have success in a year behind us. Proverb says that one should learn from the mistakes of the past, so we have to go forward with reminding public on some details, which are not finals and titles.Let’s start. TOP 10 performed the worst coaching jobs in a season behind us.1. Ola Lindgren (Sweden – Rhein Neckar Lowen)After very promising time in HSG Nordhorn, former Swedish national player, bite the big apple. With Sweden, he and Staffan Olsson were stuck in the very first round of EURO 2010 in Austria (15th place) and with over payed Rhein Neckar Lowen he achieve – nothing.  That isn’t a sign that he is a bad coach, but this wasn’t his season, his place and time.2. Sead Hasanefendic (Serbia)Fact that coaching national team and normal league team squad is totally different things approved Sead Hasanefendic. Fantastic season is behind him at the bench of VfL Gummersbach, but what happened with Serbia at EURO 2010 under his control, he couldn’t explain as well as journalists and other public in country with a lot handball talents.  Prepared for a medal fight, he left a court in Linz with two defeat and one draw – 13th place. Poor for his CV and Serbs. He stayed at that position just three months.3. Vladimir Maksimov (Russia)Former big Russia become smaller and smaller, year by year. They forgot, who to win a medals a long time ago, but know, even qualification for big competition is a question. Russia won’t play at WC 2011 and that is a shame for a country of such a results, tradition and team (Chehovski Medvedi was on EHF CL F4). Romania was better in June qualification round, so legendary Maksimov had to be placed on this list also.4. Patrice Canayer (Montpellier)Good marketing job with Nikola Karabatic didn’t bring result for champions from southern France. They won all in “Non-competitional” French League, but in Champions League they lost against Chehovski Medvedi at the door of Final Four tournament, what was surprise. Convincing defeat at the begining of a new CL season at home against HSV it is a sign that nothing will change…5. Zvonimir Serdarusic (Slovenia)He made a step forward with Slovenia at EURO 2010 in Austria, when we saw a lot of progress in motivation and skills of Slovenian players, but then came Lajos Mocsai with Hungary in Qualification for WC in Sweden and everything was ruined. Slovenia will miss second World Championships in a row…6. Heiner Brand (Germany)World champions from 2007 going down, year by year. After he became a “movie star” with his angry face and “strong fist” in front of referee head in Zadar (WC Croatia 2009), referees wasn’t guilty why he lost all important matches in Austria this january and finished 10th. The truth is also that Germany hasn’t enough TOP quality players for medals fighting, but bravery is to say that…7. Istvan Csoknyai (Hungary)He tried to keep a level of Hungarian results on the wind of popularity for our sport in this country, but he fall down at the first step – EURO 2010, where Hungary took 14th place. Now, Csoknyai is again, just assistant of Mocsai.8. Markus Baur (TBV Lemgo)Former “brain” of German national team, lost a job after CL “Wild card” tournament in Leon in September 2009, when TBV Lemgo embarrassed German handball.9. Lino Cervar (Metalurg)Even everyone expect some miracle in Skopje after “big boss” Minco Jordanov appointed Lino Cervar for a coach of Metalurg, nothing happened.  They easily lost qualification matches for Champions League in Porto and Macedonia won’t have a team in CL after many years…10. Martin Liptak (Czech Republic)Despite good result at EURO 2010, when they finished 8th, the best player of the Planet this year, Filip Jicha won’t play next World Championship in Sweden (Czech Republic lost against Serbia in Qualification) and that is only objections to Liptak. ← Previous Story Zoran Gobac: “Strange computer manipulations lead us lose EURO 2014” Next Story → Your opinion: Veszprem, Montpellier and Medvedi outsiders for F4!

Xenophon raises stakes in pokie debate

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Licensed clubs have offered to back a trial of compulsory betting controls for poker machines, after evidence surfaced this week suggesting clubs have exaggerated the likely financial losses caused by the government’s proposed reforms. After months of opposition to the prospect of mandatory measures to limit how much a player can lose on poker machines, Clubs Australia announced this week that it had written to the Federal government offering to support a trial of compulsory pre-set betting limits on pokies. Clubs Australia’s move follows the disclosure of an estimate by Clubs Training Australia in July that the drop in gaming revenues from the measures would be 10-20 per cent, which is half the figure announced previously by Clubs Australia. However, such a trial may be a stalling tactic, Independent Senator Nick Xenophon said. Senator Xenophon, who has been a vocal supporter of government reforms to protect problem gamblers, says he has no issue with a trial to look at the technical aspects of the proposed reforms, but that he queries the credibility of Clubs Australia. He described the disclosure of the lower projection for losses to be incurred by pokie machine operators as evidence of “a deliberately dishonest campaign of misinformation about poker machine reforms”. Minister for Family and Community Services, Jenny Macklin, said the government was interested in a trial before the mandatory pre-commitment system was implemented in 2014, as required under the agreement with the MP Andrew Wilkie. The Tasmanian independent senator indicated this week his preference for poker machine reform to be led by low-impact $1 poker machines (which limits gamblers to a maximum loss of $120 per hour), rather than the more complicated mandatory pre-commitment package currently proposed by the government. Mandatory pre-commitment means pokie players must set their own daily limit – a maximum amount they are prepared to lose for the day – before they start gambling. Senator Xenophon described ploys by clubs to get around the proposed restrictions on the use of ATMs at pokie venues, such as parking trailer-mounted ATMs outside clubs, in order to overcome a proposed $250 withdrawal limit inside, as “sick and cynical”.last_img read more

Theres a lot of frustration Button

first_imgThe Brighton and Hove Albion goalkeeper believes his team should have done something different in order to beat Premier League leaders Liverpool yesterday.Liverpool barely won 1-0 against Brighton and Hove Albion.And for goalkeeper David Button, they should have gotten more than just a defeat.“We limited their chances and had our own opportunities, so it is quite hard to take,” Button told the club’s official website.“I didn’t feel like I had too much to do either, we have a great defense who set up really strongly – especially at home.”Roberto Firmino, LiverpoolVirgil van Dijk praises Roberto Firmino after Liverpool’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Virgil van Dijk hailed team-mate Roberto Firmino after coming off the bench to inspire Liverpool to a 3-1 comeback win against Newcastle United.“The game plan was always to keep it tight and hit them on the counter – we knew they would have the majority of the possession,” he added.“Then it was about dealing with their movement in attack and not letting them pick out their passes in midfield.”“We executed it for the majority of the game but didn’t get the rub of the green,” he commented.“We’ve got another big and tough game next Saturday now that we have to prepare for – we can take a lot of positives from how we’ve done, and we have to dust ourselves down and go again – hopefully we can get something from the game.”last_img read more

Inc. recently expanded its breast imaging solutions with the launch of its… read more Image courtesy of Volpara SolutionsDecember 9, 2014 — Volpara Solutions launched VolparaAnalytics version 1.2 at RSNA 2014. Volpara Solutions showcased the latest version of VolparaAnalytics and the rest of its suite of quantitative breast imaging tools, including VolparaDensity and VolparaDoseRT, which enable personalized measurements of volumetric density, patient-specific dose, breast compression and other factors designed to provide insight for breast imaging quality and workflow.VolparaAnalytics, a centralized dashboard that presents key mammography metrics, works by automatically collating data from digital mammography and tomosynthesis units to enable cross-comparison of patient populations, mammography systems and operator performance. VolparaAnalytics is in use supporting quality assurance at breast imaging centers around the globe by monitoring critical elements of the breast imaging process and generating key metrics to help breast imaging centers identify and address potential issues early.The new version of VolparaAnalytics, which will be available in early 2015, features an enhanced user interface and reporting tools, and delivers expanded breast imaging metrics to users including additional quality metrics, new temporal analysis tools, additional tools to analyse patient positioning and patient-dose and time between study acquisitions.Volpara Solutions was recently recognized with the 2014 Technology Innovation Leadership Award in Breast Imaging from Frost & Sullivan based on independent analysis of the company’s technology excellence and visionary innovation. “One key new feature of the latest version of VolparaAnalytics is temporal analysis reporting, which allows users to view key breast imaging metrics such as compression force, applied pressure and mean glandular dose results over time to quickly identify inconsistencies that might have developed,” said Ralph Highnam, PhD., Volpara Solutions CEO and Chief Scientist.  “By providing objective volumetric context, this provides actionable insight to help breast centers improve patient care and productivity.”VolparaAnalytics runs on top of VolparaDensity, a software tool in use at breast imaging centers worldwide to help radiologists objectively assess density from both digital mammography and tomosynthesis images and to determine which women would benefit from additional screening.  Highly correlated to breast MR assessments, VolparaDensity is a reliable tool that automatically generates an objective measurement of volumetric breast density correlated to the ACR (American College of Radiology) breast density categories.  To date, more than 4-million women have had their breast density analyzed using VolparaDensity. VolparaDoseRT provides a standardized measurement of patient-specific dose with consistent dose results across mammography systems from different manufacturers.For more information: www.volparasolutions.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Breast Imaging | August 02, 2019 Volpara to Distribute Screenpoint Medical’s Transpara AI Solution Volpara Solutions and ScreenPoint Medical BV signed an agreement under which Volpara will sell ScreenPoint’s Transpara… read more News | Mammography Reporting Software | July 26, 2019 Ikonopedia Releases Automated Combined Reporting Package at AHRA Ikonopedia showcased its recently released Automated Combined Reporting package and its entire suite of structured… read more News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more Related Content Feature | Artificial Intelligence | July 19, 2019 | Michal Chorev AI Models Predict Breast Cancer With Radiologist-level Accuracy Breast cancer is the global leading cause of cancer-related deaths in women, and the most commonly diagnosed cancer… read more Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 7:33Loaded: 2.15%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -7:33 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

AiCE uses deep learning technology to differentiate signal from noise so that it removes noise while it preserves true signal.With the AiCE deep learning approach, the DCNN is trained in the factory using perfect high-quality target data from real patient datasets. This patient data is extensively processed with advanced model based iterative reconstruction (MBIR), which provides optimal image quality and improved spatial resolution.Following training and validation, the AiCE DCNN is then implemented into the CT scanner that allows for reconstruction speeds fast enough for busy clinical environments.Canon Medical is showcasing its AiCE technology at this year’s European Congress of Radiology (ECR), Feb. 27-March 3 in Vienna, Austria.For more information: www.us.medical.canon FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | CT Angiography (CTA) | August 07, 2019 VIDEO: Walk Around of a GE Cardiographe Dedicated Cardiac CT Scanner This is a quick walk around of the GE Healthcare Cardiographe dedicated cardiac CT system on display at the… read more 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.

ICE blames Internet phone blackout on equipment failure

first_imgFrom the print editionMalfunctioning equipment caused a network failure at the state-run Costa Rican Electricity Institute (ICE) Wednesday that prevented more than 2 million customers around the country from using Internet and cellphone services for at least three hours, the company announced Friday.“The root cause of the impairment was due to malfunctioning equipment,” ICE wrote in a report submitted to the Telecommunications Superintendency (Sutel).Sutel is reviewing the reports to try to figure out the best way to compensate ICE customers.According to reports from ICE’s support line (1115), the problem began at 3 p.m., and service was reestablished at about 5:45 p.m. Neither the company’s support staff nor its press office could immediately say what had caused the failure.ICE reported connection failures on Internet, IP and 3G telephone services, both for making calls and sending messages. There also were reports of problems with fixed and GSM lines. The blackout affected some banks too, as customers could not use credit cards or withdraw cash from ATMs. Facebook Comments No related posts.last_img read more

had "funding secured" for the dealCredit: Joe Skipper/ReutersThe innovator then backpedalled later stating that the deal fell through and the company would remain public Although as reported by Bloomberg the initial tweet sent its shares higher and now it looks like the Department of Justice is getting involved Tesla wrote in a statement: "Last month following Elons announcement that he was considering taking the company private Tesla received a voluntary request for documents from the DOJ and has been cooperative in responding to it"We have not received a subpoena a request for testimony or any other formal process We respect the DOJs desire to get information about this and believe that the matter should be quickly resolved as they review the information they have received"Even before the whole tweet debacle Tesla was already under investigation by SEC enforcement attorneys in the San Francisco office who were looking into whether Musk misled investors and breached federal securities laws with his statements In other words they were sniffing about to see if there were any signs of fraudCredit: TeslaBut now that the Department of Justice is involved this takes it from a civil matter to a criminal one and that has led to a plummet in Teslas stock by about 20 points As reported by Futurist theres been some recent movement back up the scale but its still

Consultant gastroenterologist Anton Emmanuel from the British Society of Gastroenterology tells LADbible: "Your brain is a very powerful organ and one is able to withhold the urge to empty if you try hard enough"What happens is basically clenching your pelvic floor at the tail end and that causes retrograde ie backward compression in your lower bowel and the longer something stays in your body the smaller and drier it becomes"Its understood Chambers is eating just enough food to keep himself alive but not enough to cause him to go to the bathroom But naturally there will be small pellets of poo building up in his body which are slowly becoming brittle and hard"These very hard stools could start banging against the bag or whatever its in and cause it to tear" Anton tells us "Whilst your bowel isnt very permeable it could absorb some of those things "So there is a danger that depending on what hes swallowed it could go into his bloodstream" Thats the biggest medical concern: that his Class A drugs end up in his system which could wreak havoc on his body and even cause an overdose There are also fears that his poo could get so hard that it could perforate his bowel and cause an almighty internal haemorrhage Dr Emmanuel says: "I dont know how he thinks this will end it has to come out eventually "What comes out will be very hard woody like bits of gravel so it will be painful"Thats a rough scenario that no one wants to picturevia GIPHY Chambers defence lawyer Andrew Horsell said his client is genuinely trying to go to the bathroom and claimed his human rights are being abused by

investigations into childhood cancer on the national level involves a rather cooperative and close-knit group who often know each other"We even work with contacts in Europe" he saidIn the Dakotas there are four Sanford Health pediatric cancer specialists in South Dakota and the same number in North DakotaAnd although some cases don’t end up in success there are many efforts underway in the Dakotas to find the best treatment options availableGenetic testing and using a person’s own immune system to fight cancer cells are promising studies underwayIn the genetic testing area Milanovich said the advancements include testing the DNA of not only the patient but also the tumor to find the best possible medicine or treatment and to better understand the genes involved"This is a big deal" he said "We can tailor treatments using the DNA"If lower levels of chemotherapy are used that’s also a big benefit to lower the toxic side effects and also prevent long-term health problemsBy using the DNA that treatment can be more precise and do a better job of killing the cancer cellsThen there’s immunotherapy which is offering promising and meaningful results in the cancer fightImmunotherapy is treatment that uses parts of a person’s immune system to fight cancer by stimulating a person’s own immune system to work harder or smarter to attack cancer cells or giving a patient’s immune system components such as man-made immune system proteins Some components boost the body’s immune system in a general way Others help train the immune system to attack cancer cells specificallyJust this past week weeks ahead of schedule US Food and Drug Administration regulators approved a revolutionary new treatment from Novartis that modifies the body’s immune-system cells and reinjects them to treat and in many cases cure patients with deadly blood cancers who have run out of other optionsKnown as CAR-T therapy the Novartis treatment is the first of several such drugs under development or review"We’re entering a new frontier in medical innovation with the ability to reprogram a patient’s own cells to attack a deadly cancer" FDA Commissioner Scott Gottlieb said in a statement "New technologies such as gene and cell therapies hold out the potential to transform medicine and create an inflection point in our ability to treat and even cure many intractable illnesses"The treatment will be sold under the name Kymriah and is approved for children and young adults up to age 25 with cancers that don’t respond to traditional treatment or who are suffering from a second relapse a broad indication that will give more patients access to the novel technologyWith the treatments available now fewer than 10 percent of patients with the relapsed hard-to-treat leukemia are alive five years after diagnosis In a trial of Kymriah 83 percent of 63 patients with the hard-to-treat disease were in remission within three months according to Novartis"It shows a lot of promise" said Milanovich who noted that Sanford doesn’t offer the CAR-T therapy He said doctors there can steer patients to other clinical trials or treatments across the countryNumerous studies are underway at Sanford involving cancer research For example one clinical trial announced last spring at locations in Sioux Falls Fargo and Bismarck is examining whether FDA-approved medications for one cancer can effectively treat anotherWhile the studies go on Milanovich said that progress in some areas is incremental"We can learn something then that leads to 10 more questions" he saidBut he does know that children undergoing treatment at the Sanford Children’s Hospitals in Sioux Falls and Fargo are one resilient group"They are tougher than adults sometimes" he said "They can sure teach us something"Milanovich said when the effort to fight cancer fails it’s important to be there for the child and the family"You have to try to provide the best quality of life" he saidFor those too sick to go back home Sanford has been working on a pediatric hospice care facility called "Ava’s House"Ava’s House will be a 20-bed inpatient hospice facility serving all ages with 24-hour nursing care in a home-like environment on the Sioux Falls Sanford campus big-city setting that many associate with high levels of cancer treatment ” The 15-year-old animal named Gustavito died Sunday an El Salvador
