In the news today Feb 7

first_imgSeven stories in the news for Wednesday, Feb. 7———ALBERTA TO STOP IMPORTING B.C. WINE IN OIL FLAPAlberta Premier Rachel Notley says her province is banning wine from British Columbia wineries effective immediately. This, after B-C said last week that it plans to limit how much diluted bitumen can be shipped from the coast. Notley says B.C.’s wine industry sent about 17 million bottles to Alberta last year worth about $70 million. B.C. Premier John Horgan says if Alberta has a problem with the proposed pipeline regulations, they should take the matter to court, not hit back at B.C. businesses.———ONTARIO PLANS TO CONFRONT ‘BUY AMERICAN’ PROVISIONSOntario Premier Kathleen Wynne says her government will soon introduce a bill to retaliate against any state that adopts Buy American provisions. Wynne says each punishment will be proportional to the size of the Buy American exclusion because she doesn’t want to start a trade war. The premier says she also plans to discuss the move with fellow premiers at an upcoming conference.———FEDS EARMARK CASH FOR ONLINE CHILD PROTECTIONThe Liberal government will spend millions in new money for a national centre to protect children from online sexual exploitation. The Canadian Centre for Child Protection will receive $4.1 million over five years, and $857,000 a year ongoing. The registered charity says victims of childhood sexual abuse often suffer great distress over the fact video or pictures of the crimes are circulating in cyberspace — adding to the pain they already experience.———RESEARCHERS HOPE FOR EUREKA MOMENT IN FEDERAL BUDGETThe federal budget, now believed to be only a few weeks away, is expected to contain a major financial lift for basic scientific research across the country. The spending will address some concerns laid out last year in a review of fundamental science which recommended the government end a long stretch of underfunding with phased-in investments over four years.———ALBERTA STILL NATURAL, BUT SHRINKING FASTAlberta’s natural beauty is still largely intact but parts of it are disappearing faster than the Amazon rain forest. The most complete study yet from a group that monitors the human footprint in Alberta has found that 70 per cent of the province is still untouched, mostly in the North. But the Alberta Biodiversity Monitoring Institute concludes that since the year 2000, Albertans have disturbed an area equal to three-and-a-half times the size of Banff National Park.———LEGAL MARIJUANA STILL ON TRACK FOR JULYThe Trudeau government insists it’s on track to legalize recreational pot in July — but whether that means it will actually be on sale by then is uncertain. Health Minister Ginette Petitpas Taylor told senators Tuesday that provinces and territories have indicated once a bill setting up a legal cannabis regime is given royal assent, they’ll need another eight to 12 weeks to prepare for retail sales.———TVO HOST RESPONDS TO ALLEGATIONSteve Paikin, the host of “The Agenda” on Ontario public broadcaster TVO has denied a sexual harassment allegation made by a Toronto woman, calling the claim “complete fiction.” Paikin wrote on Facebook that he was “gobsmacked” by the allegation outlined in an email he received last weekend. TVO has said an independent third party will investigate the allegations, while Paikin continued to host “The Agenda.”———ALSO IN THE NEWS TODAY:— Prime Minister Justin Trudeau begins a visit to the U.S. today, to Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco.— Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne will hold several meetings in New York.— Gov. Gen. Julie Payette visits South Korea and meets President Moon Jae-in and later attend the Olympic Winter Games.— Statistics Canada will release building permits for December.— CMHC will release a study into house prices in large Canadian cities.— The French ambassador in Canada, Kareen Rispal, visits Vancouver to deliver keynote speeches and visit companies.last_img read more

South Sudan more UN peacekeepers to be sent in to protect civilians

In a resolution adopted just two weeks after the top UN peacekeeping official called for the increase in the face of repeated ceasefire violations by both the Government and opposition, the 15-member body asked Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to prioritize the complete deployment at the new level, including tactical military helicopters and unarmed unmanned aerial systems.The UN Mission in South Sudan (UNMISS) was originally set up on the eve of the country’s independence in July, 2009, with an initial ceiling of 7,000 and a mandate to support the Government in peace consolidation by fostering state building and economic development.But both ceiling and mandate changed radically two years ago when a conflict erupted between President Salva Kiir and his former Vice-President Riek Machar, killing thousands, displacing over 2.4 million people, tens of thousands of whom have sought refuge at UNMISS bases, and impacting the food security of 4.6 million. UNMISS currently has some 12,500 uniformed personnel on the ground. Today’s resolution voiced grave concern that according to reports “there are reasonable grounds to believe that war crimes and crimes against humanity, including those involving extrajudicial killings, rape and other acts of sexual violence, enforced disappearances, the use of children in armed conflict, arbitrary arrests and detention, and attacks on schools and hospitals have been committed by both Government and opposition forces.”It asked Mr. Ban to develop a plan for UNMISS “to take appropriate action to deter and respond to any escalation of violence in and around Juba (the capital), in order to effectively protect civilians, and to protect critical infrastructure.” To deter violence against civilians, it called for “proactive deployment, active patrolling with particular attention to IDPs (internally displaced persons), including but not limited to those in protection sites and refugee camps, humanitarian personnel and human rights defenders, and identification of threats and attacks against civilians.”It also urged a mission-wide early warning strategy, including information gathering and monitoring, to counter threats and attacks against civilians, as well as full investigation of abuses against children and women, including all forms of sexual and gender-based violence.Warning the Council that South Sudan is at a critical juncture, Under-Secretary-General for UN Peacekeeping Operations Hervé Ladsous called for an increase in UNMISS forces earlier this month. read more


UN summit jumpstarts global drive for responsible business actions on Sustainable Development

In his remarks to the 2016 UN Global Compact Leaders Summit, Mr. Ban stressed that achieving the aims of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development would require finding new ways of living that would end the suffering, discrimination and lack of opportunity for billions of people around the world. As such, he called on all stakeholders – from world leaders and chief executives, to educators and philanthropists, and across all sectors and industries – to work together in broader and deeper partnerships. The UN Global Compact , the world’s largest corporate sustainability initiative, supports companies to do business responsibly by aligning their strategies and operations with Ten Principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption; and to take strategic actions to advance broader societal goals, such as the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), with an emphasis on collaboration and innovation. The Leaders Summit, which is running in New York through tomorrow, aims to jump-start business action everywhere on the Goals. To that end, the Global Compact unveiled a multi-year strategy to drive business awareness and activity that supports the achievement of the Goals by 2030. Key elements of the new ‘Making Global Goals Local Business’ strategy include an annual Leaders Summit, the SDG Pioneers programme, Local Network SDG Action Plans, UN-business partnerships, and impact reporting. Recalling the adoption last year of both the SDGs and the Paris Agreement on climate change, the Secretary-General in his remarks said sustainable development could be separated from fighting the impacts of climate change, and called for a holistic development model will take climate impact and fragile ecosystems into account, and would benefit both people and the planet. Noting that trillions of dollars will be invested in infrastructure in the coming years, he said that the Paris Agreement and the SDGs give the private sector an unprecedented opportunity to create clean-energy, climate-resilient, sustainable economies. “We are at a decisive moment in the shift to sustainable and inclusive markets,” continued the Secretary-General, noting that the first step in this regard would be to mobilize the global business community as never before. “All businesses, everywhere, can and should play a role in improving our world. That starts with integrity – doing business right,” he said. “I have seen first-hand the power of the UN Global Compact’s Ten Principles […] They are helping thousands of companies contribute to sustainability,” he said asking each of the corporate leaders and entrepreneurs participating in the Summit to renew commitment to principled business, “and to speak up for the UN Global Compact.” Next, he said innovation will be crucial. “I urge you to take advantage of the new markets and solutions that are emerging; to set corporate goals inspired by the SDGs; and to let sustainability drive innovation and investment,” he stressed. “The UN Global Compact is uniquely prepared and positioned to lead business in the SDG era,” said Mr. Ban. “Achieving the SDGs will require unprecedented cooperation, radical innovation and extraordinary leadership. And it will require us each to be a pioneer, forging ahead into new territory.” That would mean, the UN chief continued, “taking personal and corporate responsibility for how we do business and who we choose as our staff and partners. It means taking stock of our decisions as consumers and investors. It means raising our voices and taking a stand when it matters. The United Nations Global Compact is the forum to make all this happen.” In her remarks, Lise Kingo, Executive Director of the UN Global Compact said: “The Leaders Summit is the first step on a long-term journey to engage business on the 2030 Agenda. The expectations on business in the new SDG era are immense, but at the same time the opportunities are enormous.” “We need to invent, develop and launch countless new ideas and solutions within a very short time. Through our Making Global Goals Local Business strategy, we will build a powerful global movement of companies doing business responsibly and innovating around the SDGs to create the world we want,” she stressed. Noting that the Global Compact’s Ten Principles are “simply good business,” she explained that the principles provide a common ground for partners, a moral code for employees, an accountability measure, and ultimately are the foundation for building trust across the board.Underscoring the value of the SDGs for businesses, she said that addressing challenges ranging from inequality and conflict, to unemployment and climate change, the global goals reflect the complex, interconnected operating environments that businesses face around the world. The Global Compact Executive Director also added that SDGs not only identify where the global community has to be in 2030 to create a sustainable world in which nobody is left behind, they also outline new markets and opportunities for companies all over the world. To succeed, she said “we must turn the global goals into business action and impacts in markets around the world.” “There is no doubt that this is a daunting agenda. At the same time, the opportunities at hand are enormous. Global challenges – whether related to food and water crises, or conflict and inequality – are in need of solutions from all sectors, including business,” she added. In an impassioned plea at the Summit, she called on all to “seize the day and work together” to achieve the SDGs by turning risks into opportunities, and creating the world we want. “There is so much we can accomplish together – and we have only just begun. And there is no Plan B,” she said. Executive Director of the UN Global Compact Lise Kingo attends the Leaders Summit. UN Photo/Mark Garten read more

QA Nancy Gibbs Times New Managing Editor

first_imgNancy Gibbs has been a long-time member of Time, but with Richard Stengel’s departure to the U.S. State Department, she’s now stepped into the role of managing editor—the first woman to hold the position.While Gibbs takes over a powerful brand, it’s one that’s been through a tumultuous few years—ad pages continued to fall in the first half of 2013, down 16.8 percent, per PIB, though circulation has stayed roughly the same at 3.2 million, according to the Alliance for Audited Media.Time is investing heavily in digital journalism, but Gibbs knows a quality product doesn’t automatically translate into revenue. The editorial staff’s relationship with its sales team, along with the upcoming spin-off of parent company, Time Inc., will have a significant impact on the newsweekly’s future.— FOLIO: What do you plan to do differently?Nancy Gibbs: We’re in the middle right now—and I’ve been working on this for months—of a complete overhaul of, so that’s my principle focus at the moment. A lot of this is figuring exactly what we want to do with the site and where we want to take it.Happily, our print audience is very strong and steady and our digital audience is even bigger than our print audience—I’m the first editor for which that’s true—so I think there’s a lot of opportunity to grow that. Both in the U.S. and internationally.FOLIO: Your former boss Richard Stengel steered the magazine through a difficult time for the industry, and for newsweeklies in particular. Is the worst over or this just the new norm?Gibbs: We all know our industry is in transition. It’s a cliché, but that’s a challenge and an opportunity. What’s excited me is that we’ve brought in people from so many really robust and interesting media brands.We’ve hired from traditional institutions like the Wall Street Journal and Reuters and the Harvard Business Review, and then we’ve hired from BuzzFeed and Business Insider and Vox and Yahoo. That means that even as our industry is in transition, people want to come to Time and they want to be part of reimaging it for the future.What we do in print can only benefit from having that much more talent and energy in the organization.FOLIO: You say print will benefit from the talent and energy on the digital side. Is that going to influence your staffing decisions and resource distribution? Are you going to focus more on developing the digital side and trust that it’ll bleed into print?Gibbs: There was a time way back when where we would have thought about hiring more people for the Web or more people for print—we don’t talk that way anymore. I just hired a new business editor [Matt Vella] and it’s a business editor for all of our coverage, in print and online. The resources are shared across every place Time commits journalism.I don’t have a strong sense of where print will be versus tablet versus digital versus mobile in five years, but it doesn’t worry me. I think as long as we’re smart and looking around the corner we’re going to continue to be very strong.FOLIO: Consistent declines in advertising are obviously a big concern for Time, and for newsweeklies, in general. That’s not your main focus as managing editor, but how can you help address that?Gibbs: I think it’s important that we’re having a very honest and energetic conversation with our business side. I’m aware of the challenges they face.We’re very respectful of the church-state separation here, but that doesn’t mean I can’t reach out to them and say, ‘Let me talk about what I’m seeing, you tell me what you’re seeing.’ We can have a conversation about the opportunities they see.We just have to be smarter about, not just advertising, but all our revenue sources. The revenue we get from consumers, the revenue we get from sponsors of conferences and live events, the opportunities we might have in education and other arenas. I think it’s too small to think only about advertising and how we’re going to cope with the changes in the ad landscape while there are so many other places that we need to be creative about.FOLIO: How is the upcoming spin-off going to affect Time?Gibbs: We’re very excited about that. Joe Ripp appeared in my office his third day on the job to tell me personally how much Time means to him and to this company. His determination to take advantage of our independence in order to invest in new businesses and new paths to growth is exactly what I was looking to hear.More on this topic Nancy Gibbs, Janice Min Among Honorees at This Year’s Matrix Awards Nancy Gibbs Named Managing Editor at Time Folio Top Women: Nancy Gibbs Modern Farmer BuzzMedia Buys Spin In Memo, Forbes Media CEO Mike Perlis Confirms Sale ExplorationJust In PE Firm Acquires Majority Stake in Industry Dive TIME Names New Sales, Marketing Leads | People on the Move BabyCenter Sold to Ziff Davis Parent J2 Media | News & Notes Editor & Publisher Magazine Sold to Digital Media Consultant Bonnier Corp.

STATE REP RACE Dave Robertson Shares His Thoughts On Net Neutrality In OpEd

first_imgWILMINGTON, MA — Below is an Op-Ed (“The Internet Is Set To Change… For The Worse”) on net neutrality submitted by State Rep. Candidate Dave Robertson (D-Tewksbury):The past few weeks have been overwhelming in terms of national news, so it’s no wonder that the important decision regarding Net Neutrality has been missed by many busy people. Many believe, with 86% of the public supporting net neutrality, that the FCC would not reverse such a popular system. Well, unfortunately, the time for action is here.For those who may not be familiar with Net Neutrality, the phrase refers to regulations set in place two years ago that forbids internet providers from intentionally prohibiting access to all legal websites. Many internet providers are parts of media conglomerates, and federal regulators worried that these companies would intentionally remove competitors websites from views, or charge more money for you and I to use them.Recent efforts by such companies have succeeded in beginning to roll those protections back completely, exposing consumers to pricier plans with literally no improvements to services.This is already a partial reality in Portugal, where the phone company “Meo” charges $5.86 (5 Euros) a month for different internet “bundles.” To access your email , you pay for one “bundle.” To listen to music stations, it’s $5.86 for another “bundle.” Want to send photos of your kids to relatives? Better pay another $5.86 to allow internet access for those photo-sharing programs. In fact, as Meo advertises one would pay an additional $29.30 each month, per phone user, for what we currently access for no more than our standard phone bill. Imagine the water department charging you more because you chose to use Kenmore branded products instead of the Maytag brand, or intentionally shuttering your sewage access because you do not use “their preferred products.”The end of Net Neutrality will have terrible ramifications. As Massachusetts is known for its technology companies, many start ups and mid-sized companies will falter under the lack of protections. When these companies allow access to their services on the internet, as internet providers will charge users to use these small websites or slow access to the point where users will not use the site at all. Students, who rely on the internet to further their studies at all ages, may not have access to educational websites at all. Even visiting the official NFL or NBA homepage may result in additional charges, or intentionally slowed loading times even though just months before access was always the fastest internet speed available. Small businesses will suffer, potentially having to pay more for access, and residential customers will lose access to entertainment, knowledge, and communication among friends and loved ones.Now, what can be done? Several Congressional members, including all of ours here in Massachusetts, have forced a vote on the federal level to support the bipartisan agreement that Net Neutrality is for the best. But it is not enough that our federal delegation reverses these decisions on a national level, we need additional protections here in Massachusetts in case such an attempt to repeal happens again. Representative Andy Vargas of Haverhill filed a strong piece of legislation that if passed would ensure protections. In addition to forbidding companies from “throttling, blocking, or restricting access” to any content, it gives enforcement power to state agencies to preserve our current form of internet.Additional weapons in our arsenal available to preserve our internet from rolling back includes mandating government contract preferences for internet and phone companies that abide by net neutrality standards, imposing non-compliance fees for the use of public land crossings on non-abiding company infrastructure, or ensuring that all internet traffic that does not cross state lines will not be slowed down. As these are hurdles that would be too high of a cost for internet providers to shoulder in order to make a switch, and would provide extra protection for the Massachusetts consumer.Voters of the 19th Middlesex District can ensure that the next State Representative supports families, students, and businesses of all sizes by standing with Net Neutrality. Without it we stand to lose access to education, business services, and even basic entertainment. Our service providers will swear up and down they don’t intend to move to this model, but that begs the question, why are they fighting so hard to remove these protections if they wouldn’t intend to move to the new system otherwise? Voters, don’t be fooled by them or anyone who supports the removal of your consumer rights, and make sure that the next State Representative is someone who will actively protect your family, neighbors, and businesses.Like Wilmington Apple on Facebook.

COPD and Asthma Devices Market Analyzed Globally by Top key Industry

first_imgDownload the Sample Report @ need for urgency in medication and portability of the drug delivery devices will drive the growth for COPD and Asthma devices. Despite notable advantages of the COPD and Asthma devices, some factors such as environmental concerns are likely to impede the growth of COPD and Asthma devices market. It is observed that the inhalers, particularly the MDIs, release environmentally-hazardous gases, namely chlorofluorocarbon (CFC) and hydrofluoroalkanes (HFA), which is negatively impacting growth of the MDIs segment. Consumption pattern will shift to better alternatives, namely the DPIs. The Soft Mist Inhalers (SMIs), which are another type of inhalers, deliver metered dosage of medication as a soft mist. Such form of drug delivery is ~65% to 80% more efficacious than its peers and will eventually display higher growth as compared to its peers.Nebulizers, electric or battery powered machines that dispense medication as a fine mist, are ideal for home healthcare set-up for debilitated patients, geriatrics and children. Nebulizers segment thus holds about 13% of the global COPD and Asthma devices market; however, the nebulizers market is forecast to have diminishing growth through 2020 as nebulizers are rendered ineffectual, as POC or portable COPD and Asthma devices due to its larger set up.Key findings of the study:Drug powder inhalers (DPIs) segment will grow at a CAGR of 5.3% during the forecast period, fastest among allNorth American market would be one of the most lucrative markets, in terms of growthEuropean market for COPD and asthma devices would reach $10 billion by 2020, with the CAGR of 4.8%Within the nebulizers segment markets, compressor nebulizers would be most lucrative, growing at 7% CAGR during the forecast period and compressor nebulizers would garner 81.5% market share by 2020For More Inquiry @ focus to achieve product differentiation and thus gain competitive advantage drives the development of new product variants of COPD and Asthma devices. In accordance to the afore-mentioned trend, the market has witnessed steady stream of product launch. Key product manufacturing companies profiled in the report include GlaxoSmithKline Plc, Novartis AG, Merck & Co., Inc., AstraZeneca Plc, Philips Healthcare, 3M Health Care, Allied Healthcare Products Inc., Sunovion Pharmaceuticals Inc., GF Healthcare Products, Smith Medicals, Lincare Holdings Inc. and Baxter International. COPD and asthma devices market would reach $34.3 billion by 2020, registering a CAGR of 4.5% during 2014 – 2020. Considering the growth and market size, Dry Powder Inhalers (DPIs) will be the most lucrative market segment of the COPD and Asthma devices (inhalers) market by 2020. Metered Dose Inhalers (MDIs) are the largest revenue generating segment currently and would maintain the stand till 2020.last_img read more

PODCAST How Technology Is Changing Cardiology

first_imgRelated Content:A 40,000 Foot View of Trends in Cardiology, DAICThe Future of Cardiology: 17 Technologies to Watch, DAIC Applications for Artificial Intelligence in Cardiovascular Imaging, DAIC FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology is reshaping not only our understanding of cardiac disease but what motivates patients to visit doctors. Both trends are likely to intensify in the coming years, vastly expanding our understanding of cardiac disease and indelibly changing the practice of medicine, according to Partho P. Sengupta, M.D., chief of cardiology at West Virginia University in Morgantown, W. Va.In an ITN podcast, Sengupta, who also directs cardiovascular imaging and chairs the Center for Innovation at the University’s Heart and Vascular Institute, described how the analysis of big data by smart algorithms is uncovering truths about cardiac disease. Many of these truths, he said, have been buried for years in the volumes of data generated by ultrasound based echocardiography, a widely practiced form of cardiac imaging.“Echo is full of information that we have not even mined,” Sengupta said in the ITN podcast. In the Podcast, he discusses the impact of smart algorithms, as well as other technologies on medical practice now and in the years ahead. Sengupta is scheduled to speak about related topics at #ACC.19, the annual meeting of the American College of Cardiology, which will run from March 16 to 18.  He will be speaking March 16 in sessions titled:“Man vs. Machine: Current and Future Applications of Machine Learning in Cardiovascular Imaging;” and“Imaging Innovation Hub for Congenital Heart Disease.”Also that day, he will moderate a panel discussion at Future Hub entitled “Are Clinical Virtual Reality and Augmented Reality Ready for Prime Time?” On March 17, he will be a presenter during the session entitled “Current Controversies in Echocardiography.”Sengupta is listed on ten posters scheduled for display at ACC.19. Many will describe how echo may enhance physicians’ ability to diagnose cardiac disease. Impact Of Machine Learning On CardiologySengupta and colleagues are currently researching machine-learning algorithms in echocardiography. ML algorithms can analyze data sets that would otherwise overwhelm people, he noted. The information that can be pulled by them from medical data might lead to new knowledge about heart disease. And there is plenty more to learn. “We are just scraping the surface of what we understand of cardiology,” he said.Meanwhile technologies other than smart algorithms are affecting other facets of medical imaging, Sengupta acknowledged in the ITN podcast. The output of wearable and home sensors that monitor vital signs, for example, is already changing the doctor-patient relationship. This is seen in the questions that patients pose to physicians, he said.  Rather than seeing a doctor because of shortness of breath, for example, a patient today might ask about the significance of what these devices have reported.“It is a new type of reason the patient wants to see a doctor. The whole taxonomy of how we define cardiac disorders is going to change. People are not going to present with symptoms,” Sengupta said in the ITN podcast, noting that this “is opening up myriad other ways that we need to look at disease.” Greg Freiherr is a contributing editor to Imaging Technology News (ITN).

Go back to the enewsletter Hawaiian Airlines marke

first_imgGo back to the enewsletterHawaiian Airlines marked 15 years of continuous service between Honolulu and Sydney on the night of Friday 17 May 2019, when HA451 landed at Sydney International Airport.Since Hawaiian Airlines launched flights in 2004, the number of other carrier services between Australia and Hawaii has increased by nearly 75%. In 2014, there were 686 departures, compared to this year when the frequency jumps up to 1,193.Hawaiian Airlines’ Regional Director for Australia/New Zealand, Andrew Stanbury, said the airline has played a pivotal role in introducing Hawaii as a leading holiday destination for Aussie travellers, as well as providing onward connections to outer islands and the USA mainland. The airline itself has carried 1.71 million guests between Sydney and Honolulu since the route’s launch.Hawaii also continues to be an extremely popular stopover destination for Australians. The most popular Hawaiian ‘neighbour islands’ beyond Oahu are Maui, the Island of Hawaii (The Big Island) and Kauai, while the leading US Mainland connections include Los Angeles, New York City (JFK) and Las Vegas.The occasion was marked with hula dancers, a ukulele player and cupcakes for Hawaiian’s outbound passengers about to depart on HA482 to Honolulu.The festivities rolled onto Monday this week, with Hawaiian Airlines’ luring the cream of the crop from the Australian travel industry to a function at Nola Smokehouse at Barangaroo.Stanbury, who has been with Hawaiian for six months, thanked the trade for its ongoing support of the airline. He said that Sydney was a very important part of HA’s strategy to become a “true international carrier”.He said that being a “destination carrier” makes a huge difference between it and competitors flying to the Aloha State, enabling Hawaiian to focus its attitude towards guests, from the food service to the lie-flat beds in Business, to the authentic style of service that is delivered.Stanbury also announced to the packed audience of industry heavyweights Hawaiian Airlines’ plans for its new fleet of state-of-the-art Boeing aircraft. Hawaiian Airlines has 10 Boeing 787-9 Dreamliners arriving from 2021. It will feature the Aspire Economy class seat offering more comfort and “wiggle room” and lie-flat Business class seats made by Adient Aerospace.“The big question is, whether or not this will actually come to Australia. And the answer to that is, yes it will.”Stanbury stated the 787-9 “will be servicing Sydney sometime in the future”, but was unable to specify an exact launch date at this time.And to mark the 15th anniversary, Hawaiian Airlines bestowed all guests attending the trade event with an American Tourister carry-on suitcase of their very own, featuring a limited-edition luggage tag.Lead image: Hawaiian Airlines’ Karen Macmillan, Andrew Stanbury and Keiryn Osbourne, with Kathy Mainerd, HA’s Station Manager at Sydney Airport.Go back to the enewsletterlast_img read more

Listen to the most important stories of the day Contact us at editors@timecomA new study suggests that humans might have more in common with octopuses than it appears: they both respond to at least one psychoactive drug in a similar sociable way Scientists from Johns Hopkins University and the Marine Biological Laboratory on Cape Cod found that just like humans notoriously reserved (and sometimes violent) octopuses act friendly and social when they’re exposed to MDMA otherwise known as ecstasy or Molly That finding published in Current Biology is more than just a fun party fact: It suggests that octopus and human brains are fundamentally similar in some ways meaning that researchers could feasibly use the marine creatures to learn more about the human brain MDMA stokes euphoria in humans in part by increasing levels of the feel-good neurotransmitter serotonin in the brain A close look at the octopus genome showed researchers that a protein involved in this process in humans looked very similar in the sea creatures suggesting that “pharmacologically we could predict MDMA should work in octopus in the way it does in humans” study co-author Eric Edsinger a research fellow at the Marine Biological Laboratory said in a statement TIME Health Newsletter Get the latest health and science news plus: burning questions and expert tips View Sample Sign Up Now To test that hypothesis the research team placed octopuses in an interconnected three-chamber tank meant to test sociability The “social” chamber contained another octopus (sitting under an orchid pot full of holes just in case fights broke out) while the “object” chamber contained a figurine of the Star Wars character Chewbacca Octopuses were placed in the center chamber and allowed to roam through the setup as they pleased for 30 minutes Before they were dosed with MDMA octopuses of both sexes tended to spend more time in the social chamber if the other octopus was female but more time in the object chamber if it was male After spending 10 minutes in a low-dose MDMA bath however octopuses were far more inclined to spend time with male octopuses next door even reaching out to “hug” the pot they sat under The results suggest that MDMA does indeed spur many of the same pro-social behaviors in octopuses as it does in humans suggesting that serotonin has been regulating social processes since humans and octopuses evolved into distinct species some 500 million years ago The researchers warn that the findings are preliminary and must be replicated but they could someday open up a whole new avenue of research for scientists looking to learn more about the human brain and how it responds to substances like MDMA the study says Write to Jamie Ducharme at jamieducharme@timecomIn many states hiring a woman to carry and give birth to a child for you is illegal But democratic New York Senator Brad Hoylman is fighting to change that in his home state On Wednesday he and the New York State assembly re-filed a bill called the Child-Parent Security Act to legalize compensated surrogacy in New York and provide protections that ensure surrogates are entering into legal agreements and there’s no question that the intended parents of the child have full rights For him the issue is personal and political New York forbids compensated surrogacy and is the only state where criminal penalties can be imposed on people who enter into a paid surrogacy agreement That means that couples who want to use a surrogate to have a child that they’re genetically related must travel to a state where the practice is legal in order to do so That’s what Hoylman and his husband David Sigal did Their daughter Silvia now 4 was born via a surrogate in California where compensated surrogacy is legal and parental rights are established prior to the birth of the child “It added a lot of time and expense and uncertainty to having a child as a gay couple” says Hoylman “California has codified legal protections for surrogate families and I would like to see that replicated in New York” Twenty-two states allow the practice and four statesNew York Michigan Nebraska New Jerseyas well as
