WATCH: Burnaby company developing Ebola vaccine, but trials halted by FDA

Written by admin on 21/07/2019 Categories: 广州桑拿论坛

More than 700 people have died in west Africa since the Ebola epidemic began earlier this year, and officials say the disease is outrunning efforts to stop it.

Tekmira, a Burnaby pharmaceutical company is working on producing the world’s first treatment of the Ebola virus, but the clinical human trials were halted by the FDA last month due to safety concerns.

Tekmira refused to comment today but on its website says it’s confident testing will resume before the end of the year.

For the first time, an Ebola patient is being flown from the crisis zone in West Africa to North America for treatment.

The infected patient will be flown to the us on a private jet equipped with a bio-containment unit.

The American doctors infected with the deadly virus are both in stable but serious condition.

At least one is scheduled to be transported here; to Emory University Hospital in Atlanta, one of only four hospitals in states equipped to handle such highly contagious patients.

The World Health Organization issuing a dire warning today, saying the outbreak can be catastrophic if the virus is not contained.

More than 700 people have died across Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone —; 1,300 more —;  are sick.

The mortality rate is up to 90 per cent and there is no cure or vaccine.

As the race for containment continues, Canada is now joining the list of countries warning its citizens not to travel to the affected West African areas unless it’s necessary.

Conservative MP quits hotly contested nomination race for Toronto area riding

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿论坛

MISSISSAUGA, Ont. – Conservative MP Eve Adams, who has been in a contentious nomination battle in the new Toronto-area riding of Oakville North-Burlington, says she is dropping out for health reasons.

Adams says in an emailed statement that she suffered a concussion last February and has not fully recovered.

She says she continued working on the campaign but has decided it would be best to drop out.

“Since my concussion last February and against my doctor’s orders, I have not rested,” she said.

“I assumed as with all previous health concerns that with time, my body would heal itself. However, six months later, I continue to suffer from my concussion and the time has come to take my health seriously.”

Adams currently represents the riding of Mississauga-Brampton South.

Adams’ team had been accused of paying for the memberships of supporters, alleged donations that are illegal under the Elections Act. Adams in turn has accused rival Natalia Lishchyna of improperly using data research firms to phone members at home.

The nomination contest was on hold pending an internal investigation.

Adams fiance, Dimitri Soudas, had to resign as executive director of the Conservative party when it was perceived he was using his position to help Adams.

Adams and Soudas did not immediately respond to requests for comment on the decision to withdraw from the nomination contest.

And in an email to late Friday night, Conservative Party spokesman Cory Hann said “we have no comment on the withdrawal.”

The party has previously said that it is committed to fair and open nominations in all 338 electoral districts across the country.

WATCH: Safe boating saves lives: spreading the message across Canada

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿论坛

KELOWNA – You couldn’t ask for a better weekend on the water. The busy August long weekend is here and boaters are already taking over Okanagan Lake.

While we’re all out to have a good time, it only takes an instant for an accident.

“It’s about making common sense decisions,” says BOATsmart president, Cam Taylor, “wearing lifejackets and not consuming alcohol while you’re out on the water.”

广州桑拿

BOATsmart is Canada’s leading provider for boating licences and ambassadors are taking the summer to cruise across Canada with a message of safety, along with encouraging education, as having a boating licence is the law.

According to Taylor, the majority of boat-related drowning happens to people not wearing a lifejacket and alcohol plays a factor in 39 per cent of boating accidents.

“Unfortunately in B.C. on average there are 21 fatalities in boating each year and most are preventable with 79 per cent of people drowning from boats typically not wearing lifejackets or PFDs (personal floatation devices). They would be alive today if they were wearing those.”

While it’s not mandatory to wear it, it is the law the to have a proper PFD for every passenger on board and according to Kelowna RCMP that’s one of the biggest infractions they see on the water.

Along with spreading the message of safety, the BOATsmart team is also looking to share your fun boating experiences and it all goes to a good cause.

Ambassadors are asking you take a picture while boating and post it on twitter or instagram with the hashtag #boatsmartmoments. For every hashtagged picture, BOATsmart will donate a dollar to a local kids camp, with all the profits from B.C. going to Camp Goodtimes.

Rock guitarist Dick Wagner’s West Island connection

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿论坛

MONTREAL – The last ever song Dick Wagner recorded in March of 2014, was a cover of Kiss’ Every Time I Look at You to help raise funds for a palliative care home just outside of Montreal.

Wagner, who died last week of respiratory failure aged 71, was a skilled guitarist who worked with Alice Cooper, Lou Reed, Kiss and Aerosmith, and also co-wrote many of Cooper’s hits.

广州桑拿

He became involved with the fundraising project for the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence at the behest of local rock reporter and project organizer, Mitch Lafon.

READ MORE: Rock guitarist Dick Wagner dies at 71

Lafon was on the Global Montreal Morning News with  Richard Dagenais last year to launch the first album A World With Heroes, which raised over $30,000 for the cancer care home in Hudson.

A World with Heroes was released in 2013 and has raised over $30,000 for the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence in Hudson.

The album featured artists from big name bands such as Guns N’ Roses, Black Sabbath, Cinderella, Whitesnake, Honeymoon Suite, Slaughter, Brighton Rock,  Slaves On Dope, Great White, and many more.

Find out more about the A World With Heroes album here.

Over the past 25 years, Lafon has developed enduring friendships with some of rock’s elite, but he told Global News that he still finds it incredible so many stars would volunteer their time and their music to this very local project, for nothing in return.

“They just did this out of the kindness of their hearts,” Lafon said.

For him, the biggest take-away from this endeavour has been the realization of how important it is to give back to your community.

“You can go to the care home and see how the money was used. You can see that they hired a new nurse, and you can see concrete results.”

Lafon’s father-in-law passed away at the Vaudreuil-Soulanges Palliative Care Residence, and last Aug. 27, he released the first album to mark what would have been his 75th birthday.

The new EP, which Dick Wagner collaborated on, will mark the one-year anniversary of Lafon’s  father-in-law’s death and will again be released on his birthday.

    “You think of those numbers, 21 million wounded, 16 million killed,” said Tom Hinderks, executive director of the Alberta Aviation Museum.  “We need to remember those things and the sacrifices that were made by the men and the women.”

    On Friday, the Alberta Aviation Museum unveiled its commemorative exhibit on World War 1.  In addition to its standard WWI exhibit, the museum has added two more display cabinets. One features two Edmonton-area men who joined the Royal Flying Core. The other portion features the Air Observer, which worked directly with the army and relayed intelligence of the enemies’ location.

    “This is one of the dramatic moments in Canada’s history, in Alberta’s history,” explained Hinderks.“We were engaged in what would become a number of huge conflicts.”

Nanaimo RCMP release sketch of man wanted for attempted abduction

Written by admin on  Categories: 广州桑拿论坛

VANCOUVER – RCMP in Nanaimo have released a composite sketch of a man they believe was involved in the attempted abduction of a woman on Thursday July 31.

At about 7 p.m. a 44-year-old woman was driving an older model Ford Escort going northbound along Brechin Road when she stopped for a red light at Highway 19a. A man driving an older model late 90s Ford F150 pulled up beside her and yelled something in her direction. The woman ignored him because she didn’t know him.

广州桑拿

She continued to drive north along Highway 19a and the man followed her in his truck. He was honking his horn and flashing his lights so thinking there might be a problem with her car, the woman pulled into the slow lane.

The man cut his truck in front of her forcing her to stop.

Police say he walked to the driver’s door and said to the woman “I want to take you for coffee.” She ignored him and was beginning to power up her window when he reached in, grabbed her left arm and attempted to pull her out the window. The woman was able to power up her window, and with him still holding her arm, sped off. This broke his grip and the woman raced away.

Once home she immediately called 9-1-1. Police say she was left with bruising on her arm and was traumatized by her ordeal.

They are now looking for the suspect. He is described as:

 white , 40’s, good looking with an athletic buildsalt and pepper hair worn in a military style cutpale, clean shaven,light coloured eyeshigh pitched voice, like that of a teenagercleft shin and white mark on the bridge of nose, similar to a scarwhite t-shirt with a dragon symbolmetal banded watch on his left wrist

“Traffic was moderate at the time but we are confident someone travelling along the highway would have noticed the vehicles stopping and some of the exchange between the two. We are asking anyone who witnessed anything to contact us immediately,” said Const. Gary O’Brien.

If you have any information on this incident or the suspect, please contact the Cst Sean Zeigler of the Nanaimo RCMP at 250-754-2345, or call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-222-8477. You can also go online at 广州桑拿网nanaimocrimestoppers广州桑拿网
