Jaipur: Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot on Saturday rejected the resignation of state Minister Lal Chand Kataria who had resigned a few days back taking moral responsibility for the Congress party’s defeat in the Lok Sabha elections in his constituency by over one lakh votes. Rejecting his resignation, Gehlot said that at the time when the election results have not been in favour of the Congress, the moral responsibility of party members increases to unitedly face the challenges ahead and contribute in providing good governance in Rajasthan.

Kataria had reportedly resigned as state Agriculture Minister, citing the rout of the party in the Lok Sabha elections. In a press release, Kataria said he had sent his resignation to the Governor through Chief Minister Ashok Gehlot, who has come under attack from Congress President Rahul Gandhi after the Congress failed to win even a single seat in Rajasthan.

Kataria himself could not be reached on telephone to confirm if he had resigned. However, on Friday, Kataria confirmed that he had gone to Uttarakhand after submitting his resignation. His press release, which had gone viral on social media, said he considered it morally inappropriate to continue as minister after the party’s defeat. “This resignation should not be connected to any other factor,” he said, adding he would remain a member of the Assembly and continue to articulate people’s grievances.
Kathmandu: Nepal Prime Minister K P Oli has extended an invitation to his Indian counterpart Narendra Modi for a visit to his country and strengthen bilateral relations through regular exchange of visits.

It was a star stuffed affair at the premier of Taranjiet Singh Namdhari’s documentary ‘Sangeet – Saroop – Satgur’ which showcases the work done by Satguru Jagjit Singhji in mobilising every youngster from a village called Bhaini Saheb in Punjab to learn classical music for 100 years. Present at the premiere was current master of the Namdharis – Satguru Uday Singhji along with Ustad Zakir Hussain, Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma among others.The documentary portrays impact of music and a 100-year-old legacy. Narrated through incidents by industry stalwarts who have promoted and catalyzed the process by imparting their knowledge to village children, filmmaker Taranjiet Singh Namdhari depicts one of the most astounding stories of a true patron of classical music. Also Read – An income drop can harm brain”Very few maestros have had such an impact on our generation in all spheres of life – on music, on spirituality or on life in general – educating everyone as to how they can lead an ideal life specially though the field of music. The blessings that Satguru ji gave us artists cannot be found in another parallel in this life or era of ours”, said Ustad Zakir Hussain. “Satguruji’s efforts will be written in the annals of history with gold. His rhythmic play of the tarab on the Dilruba was incomparable”, said Pandit Shiv Kumar Sharma. Also Read – Shallu Jindal honoured with Mahatma AwardSatguru Jagjit Singh was one of the biggest patrons of classical music in India and his love and dedication for it has inspired many a musician around the world. He believed that learning classical music everyday instills a certain discipline and focus in an individual, which is necessary right from childhood. As a young adult, he made it compulsory for all children in Bhaini Sahib to learn classical music. The current master of the Namdharis – Satguru Uday Singh, has taken forward the tradition with equal vigour after Satguru Jagjit Singh passed away in 2012. From Bismillah Khan, Kishan Maharaj and Vilayat Khan to Pandit Shivkumar Sharma, Ustad Zakir Hussain and Amjad Ali Khan, the tradition has attracted many a music maestro to Bhaini Sahib to impart their knowledge to the children. The documentary is a musical journey that discovers the hidden gems of Bhaini Sahib, and the mesmerising story of Satguru Jagjit Singh that has remained untold. Sangeet – Saroop – Satgur premiered in Mumbai on July 26, 2019.
Washington D.C. – Algeria’s Minister of Foreign Affairs Ramtane Lamamra recent statement hailing the Assad’s regime liberation of Aleppo may have just sealed the fate of his country’s relations with the Arab nations of the Gulf. His disregard to the deaths of thousands of women and children at the hands of the Iraqi, Lebanese and Iranian Shiite militias is a sign of an Algerian regime adrift with no clear leadership or policy. Algeria has displayed an extraordinary disregard to the suffering of tens of thousands of defenseless Syrian civilians as it stands with the Russian discriminate shelling of Syrian civilians, declared a prominent figure in the Syrian opposition.During a TV appearance, a leader of the Syrian opposition called Lamamra’s comments saluting “the liberation of Aleppo from the hands of the terrorists” as immoral and criminal. While All Arab and Muslim countries must condemn the atrocities committed by some rebel groups namely Jabhat Fatah al-Sham (JFS formerly know as Jabhat al-Nusra) and the so-called Islamic State (ISIS), Algeria’s discount of Assad and Russian’s carnage in Syria while calling all opposition groups terrorists is still inexplicable.It is dangerous for the Algerian foreign minister to claim that terrorist groups had been in control of Aleppo. This Algerian assertion has rattled the political wing of the Syrian opposition since it is in fact the argument that the Russians and Assad have been advancing to justify their onslaught. While JFS run some parts of Aleppo, the city was primarily under the control of assorted groups of the armed opposition unassociated with the terror group. Algerian diplomats and pro-government media outlets are having difficulties distinguishing between the JFS terror group that hijacked the Syrian revolution and the opposition groups who are fighting the Assad regime. While there were terror groups besieged in Aleppo, to paint all fighters in the city as terrorists is simplistic. Actually, the Algerians should learn from the Turks who are fighting ISIS without endorsing the Russian intervention in Syria. The pro-government website algerie1.com wrote several articles accusing the Weston media in general and the French press in particular of supporting JFS. In what a Syrian opposition figure called the worst type of propaganda, Algeria continues to turn a blind eye to the suffering of the people of Aleppo while drumming up the Russian and Iranian version of events. As Algerians struggle to find their footing in this conflict, European and Arab capitals are taking their distance from Algiers.Moreover, the Algerian press has harshly criticized the Saudi, Emirati and Qatari policies in Yemen, Syria and Libya accusing the Arab nations of “supporting and arming terrorist groups.” Such undiplomatic language is not going unnoticed in these capitals where Algeria’s recent political and economic overtures received lukewarm receptions.The ailing Algerian diplomacy continues to live in the past calling the civil war in Syria an imperialist plot to control Arab land. Mr. Lamamra remarks are a clear message that his government supports Iran and Assad against the Syrian opposition and Saudi Arabia. Such position will likely further Algeria’s isolation and economic malaise.Algeria’s ambivalence to the sectarian nature of the war in Syria is objectionable. In fact, it sounds as if Algeria is endorsing Iran and its sectarian proxies’ master plan to extend their religious influence and territorial control in the Middle East by making a military stand in Aleppo.Scenes of dead babies and mutilated women have not moved the Algerian top diplomat. For him the siege of Aleppo is justifiable since the “Syrian state has succeeded in regaining its sovereignty and reconquering the city,” as he stated in an interview.It is a shame to hear an Algerian diplomat describing a military operation led by the Syrian army, Shi’ite militias backed by Russian air power that killed thousands of civilians in Aleppo as a liberation, while ignoring the agony the Syrian people who suffered for years and give up thousands of lives.Algeria can choose to stand by Assad, but to do it while belittling the suffering of the Syrian is a crime.The views and opinions expressed in this article are those of the author and do not represent any institution or entity. © Morocco World News.

Not to be outdone by their football counterparts, the Ohio State men’s soccer team defeated conference foe Wisconsin on the road Sunday afternoon on the legs of the Hegngi brothers, albeit in less thrilling fashion. The Buckeyes knocked off the Badgers 2-0 to improve their conference record to 4-1 and take the driver’s seat in the Big Ten title race. Head coach John Bluem praised his defense after the game saying he knew it would be a tough task winning on the road. “We just had a really good game,” Bluem said. “The guys were really determined; they played well and followed the plan very well.” Ohio State got on the board early when senior forward Parnell Hegngi was fouled in the box by Wisconsin freshman defender A.J. Cochran, giving OSU a penalty kick. Parnell Hegngi’s brother Chris Hegngi took the penalty kick and got it past sophomore goalkeeper Max Jentsch to give the Buckeyes a 1-0 lead in the 27th minute of the contest. It was Chris Hegngi’s third goal on three penalty kick attempts this season. Chris Hegngi’s goal was his ninth on the season, which leads the Big Ten. In the second half, Parnell Hegngi took a free kick from just outside the box and curled it around the Wisconsin defensive wall and into the upper right corner of the goal to give the Buckeyes a 2-0 lead. It was Parnell Hegngi’s third goal of the season and first since the Buckeyes’ Sept. 4 win over Stetson. “Parnell Hegngi was a big part of the reason we won today,” Bluem said. “He was the guy who drew the penalty kick and in the second half Parnell scores a goal off of a free kick. He had a very good game.” The Buckeyes were out-shot 20-13 in the contest but junior goalkeeper Matt Lampson tallied seven saves and notched his fifth shutout of the season. He is now in second place all-time with 24 career saves, three saves away from tying Casey Latchem’s career record for OSU. With Northwestern playing No. 10 Indiana to a 2-2 tie Sunday, the Buckeyes (10-5-2) take sole control over the Big Ten lead. They will play Indiana (10-3-4) for the regular season conference title Saturday. “If we win against Indiana, that would make us the conference champions, no matter what other scenario,” Bluem said. “We control our own destiny.” The game will kick off from Bloomington, Ind., at 1 p.m.

Aung San Suu Kyi. Photo: AFPMyanmar leader Aung San Suu Kyi faced rising global pressure Tuesday to solve the crisis for her nation’s displaced Rohingya Muslim minority, meeting the UN chief and America’s top diplomat in the Philippines.UN secretary general Antonio Guterres told the Nobel laureate that hundreds of thousands of displaced Muslims who had fled to Bangladesh should be allowed to return to their homes in Myanmar.”The secretary-general highlighted that strengthened efforts to ensure humanitarian access, safe, dignified, voluntary and sustained returns, as well as true reconciliation between communities, would be essential,” a UN statement said, summarising comments to Suu Kyi.Guterres’ comments came hours before Suu Kyi sat down with US secretary of state Rex Tillerson on the sidelines of the East Asia Summit in Manila.Washington has been cautious in its statements on the situation in Rakhine, and has avoided outright criticism of Suu Kyi.Supporters say she must navigate a path between outrage abroad and popular feeling in a majority Buddhist country where most people believe the Rohingya are interlopers.At a photo opportunity at the top of her meeting with Tillerson, Suu Kyi ignored a journalist who asked if the Rohingya were citizens of Myanmar.At a later appearance after the meeting, Tillerson — who is headed to Myanmar on Wednesday — was asked by reporters if he “had a message for Burmese leaders”.He apparently ignored the question, replying only: “Thank you”, according to a pool report of the encounter.A senior US State Department official later said the top diplomat would press Myanmar’s powerful army chief on Wednesday to halt the violence in Rakhine and make it safe for Rohingya to return.The official did not comment on whether Tillerson would raise the threat of military sanctions, which US lawmakers have pushed for.Canada’s Justin Trudeau said he had spoken to Myanmar’s de facto leader.”I had an extended conversation with… Aung San Suu Kyi, about the plight of the Muslim refugees in Rakhine state,” he told a press conference.”This is of tremendous concern to Canada and many, many other countries around the world.”We are always looking at… how we can help, how we can move forward in a way that reduces violence, that emphasises the rule of law and that ensures protection for all citizens,” he said.- ‘Ethnic cleansing’ -More than 600,000 Rohingya have flooded into Bangladesh since late August, and now live in the squalor of the world’s biggest refugee camp.The crisis erupted after Rohingya rebels attacked police posts in Myanmar’s Rakhine state, triggering a military crackdown that saw hundreds of villages reduced to ashes and sparked a massive exodus.The UN says the Myanmar military is engaged in a “coordinated and systematic” attempt to purge the region of Rohingya in what amounts to a “textbook example of ethnic cleansing”.The stream of desperate refugees who escape across the riverine border bring with them stories of rape, murder and the torching of villages by soldiers and Buddhist mobs.The Burmese government insists military action in Rakhine is a proportionate response to violence by militants.Following its first official investigation into the crisis, the army published a report this week in which it cleared itself of any abuses.However, it heavily restricts access to the region by independent journalists and aid groups, and verification of events on the ground is virtually impossible.Suu Kyi, a former democracy activist, has been lambasted by rights groups for failing to speak up for the Rohingya or condemn festering anti-Muslim sentiment in the country.Musician and campaigner Bob Geldof on Monday slammed Suu Kyi as a “murderer” and a “handmaiden to genocide”, becoming the latest in a growing line of global figures to disavow the one-time darling of the human rights community.Supporters say she does not have the power to stop the powerful military, which ruled the country for decades until her party came to power following 2015 elections.In a summit on Monday night with leaders of the 10-member Association of Southeast Asian Nations, of which Myanmar is a member, Guterres also voiced concern about the Rohingya.He said the displacement of hundreds of thousands of Rohingya was a “worrying escalation in a protracted tragedy,” according to the UN statement.He described the situation as a potential source of instability in the region, as well as radicalisation.

I didn’t mind the white lies, but I also felt like something of an impostor. Nothing in my post mentioned my Botox injections, my regular use of Retin-A and vitamin C serum. Nor did it note the major life transitions I’d navigated in the past decade: the deaths of my parents, a divorce, the passing of my cocker spaniel, my sister’s cancer diagnosis. Somewhat reluctantly, I gave in and posted my then-and-now photos with the caption: “Okay, okay.” The feedback was fast and fine. “Hunky then, and more so NOW!” “U haven’t aged at all.” “You are positively ageless, not to mention ultra handsome.” “You wear glasses now. That’s the only difference I can see.” It was fun to watch, especially considering how good many of my friends looked. I posted on their feeds. “Ageless!” “Gorgeous X2.” And, “Which is which?” The whole exercise seemed harmless, if a bit self-involved, despite some concerns about privacy. But as the photos and comments continued to pour in, the challenge soon became a barometer of our views about aging, of how we define beauty, even of what it means to live a purposeful life. Earlier this month out of nowhere came the “How Hard Did Aging Hit You Challenge” that flooded Instagram and Facebook. The game, better known as the “10-Year Challenge,” couldn’t have been easier: Simply post two photos side by side — an early profile photo from 2009 next to a recent one — as proof positive of how you’ve aged. Or, in many cases, miraculously not aged. Kevin LaBar, associate director at Duke University’s Center for Cognitive Neuroscience, said that two opposing forces might be at play in motivating someone to join the challenge. One he called “age defying.” Positive call outs would appeal to a person’s “pure vanity, with a superficial, narcissistic, ageist bent.” The other he called “celebrating aging,” or embracing an older self, wrinkles be damned. For those people, comments like “older and wiser” might resonate most. Read the whole story: The New York Times

Illustration courtesy National Library of Medicine (no changes per creative commons) Hippocrates viewed the patient as a whole. Today physicians tend to see the patient as a collection of parts — cardiologists hearts; orthopedists joints.Generalists may refer their patients to specialists who may hand them off to subspecialists, leading many to lament about the practice of modern medicine in silos.Enterprise imaging could change that. It is being groomed to break down the barriers that keep medical disciplines apart, presenting to all involved in healthcare a picture of the patient as a collective rather than individual parts.This will happen only through a concerted effort, one that combines multiple technologies — enterprise viewers (see “The Impracticality of a Truly Universal Viewer for Enterprise Imaging”) and vendor neutral archives, workflow engines and advanced analytics. What might be achieved is a complete picture of the patient. Included will be digital stills and videos; smartphone pictures and PowerPoint charts; EKG graphs and radiology reports; speech pathology recordings and dictation.Archive MagicIn the words of British science fiction writer Arthur C. Clark, any sufficiently evolved technology is indistinguishable from magic. Enterprise imaging is the most advanced form of picture archiving and communications, unlocking the value of the myriad of technologies that capture, archive and transmit digital medical images. In the coming era of medicine, with its emphasis on value rather than volume, it promises the sleight of hand that will bring the many disciplines of medicine together.The vendor neutral archive (VNA) is critically important to realizing this potential. Adopted early as a way to avoid migrating data from one picture archiving and communication system (PACS) to the next, it was soon recognized as a central repository for multiple types of patient data. Today VNAs are welcoming DICOM and non-DICOM images into a common management structure that can be supported across the lifecycle of the data.To be truly vendor neutral, archives must be hardware and vendor independent; based on standards; central to all clinical and business content relevant to the patient; and interoperable. To live up to expectations in enterprise imaging, they must be integrated with the electronic medical record (EMR). The importance of a seamless connection with the EMR system is hard to overstate.The electronic medical record is the catalyst for the exchange of images among medical disciplines. Without it, no such exchange can occur.In this, archives serve as a kind of “community hall,” where images and other patient data are stored for clinicians and diagnosticians to access in ways calculated to benefit the patient and make healthcare more efficient. Neither the malady nor the location of the patient should matter — be it a rash examined in dermatology, a gaping wound photographed in the ER, or a standard uptake value calculated using positron emission tomography/computed tomography (PET/CT) in the nuclear medicine department. The physician should have to care only about the clinical value of the patient data, not from where it came or how it was captured.To be of greatest use, the archives should be scalable to support the smallest clinic, the multi-site enterprise, and everything in between. The driving concern of their makers should be to support their agnostic functions and to increase their operational speeds.Better Living Through TechnologyFifty year olds in the U.S. in 2007 could expect to live six years longer on average than those in 1950, according to Human Mortality Database. We have reached this point in large part thanks to the plethora of imaging devices that allow physicians to look noninvasively inside the human body.Technological advances have shown how the data captured with these machines and others can be gathered, stored and transmitted. This has created demand for the many healthcare practitioners — generalists and specialists alike –to see what has traditionally been available to only a few.This is the grandest promise of enterprise imaging: that it will lead medicine back to its roots, where the patient is treated as a person rather than separable parts.How ironic would it be if technology, which has fomented a revolution in healthcare while dissociating care into many parts, were to provide the means by which medical practitioners recommit to the Hippocratic ideal?

With hypofractionated WBI, patients receive larger doses of radiation across fewer treatment sessions — typically completing treatment in three to four weeks, compared with five to seven weeks for conventional treatment.Reflecting current evidence from clinical trials and large cohort studies, the new guideline recommends hypofractionated WBI for breast cancer patients regardless of age, tumor stage and whether they have received chemotherapy. It replaces the existing ASTRO WBI guideline published in 2011.”Previously, accelerated treatment was recommended only for certain patients, including older patients and those with less advanced disease, but recent long-term results from several large trials strongly support the safety and efficacy of accelerated treatment for most breast cancer patients,” said Benjamin Smith, M.D., co-chair of the guideline task force and an associate professor of radiation oncology at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston. “Conventional therapy does not provide an incremental benefit in either tumor control or side effects compared to hypofractionated WBI.”Despite the data supporting accelerated treatment, large numbers of eligible breast cancer patients are not receiving shorter courses of radiation therapy. A 2013 Journal of the American Medical Association (JAMA) study found an adoption rate of approximately 30 percent, and a 2017 analysis for Kaiser Health News indicated that fewer than half of patients over age 50 with early-stage disease receive the accelerated treatment.”Hypofractionated radiation therapy offers patients a more convenient and lower cost option for their treatment without compromising the likelihood that their cancer will return or increasing their risk of side effects,” said Reshma Jagsi, M.D., D.Phil., co-chair of the task force and a professor of radiation oncology at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor. “A shorter course of radiation equates to more time with family, less time away from work and lower treatment costs. We hope that this guideline encourages providers to counsel their patients on options including hypofractionation.”The guideline provides clinical guidance for dosing, planning and delivering WBI with or without an additional “boost” of radiation therapy to the tumor bed. Full recommendations and supporting evidence are provided in the guideline; key recommendations are as follows:Delivery and Dosing of WBI (without irradiation of regional nodes)Treatment decisions, including decisions between hypofractionated and conventional approaches, should be individualized to each patient and shared between the patient and their physician(s);For women with invasive breast cancer receiving WBI with or without inclusion of the low axilla, the preferred dose-fractionation scheme is hypofractionated WBI to a dose of 4000 Centigray (cGy) in 15 fractions or 4250 cGy in 16 fractions; andThe decision to offer hypofractionated therapy should be independent of the following factors: tumor grade; whether the tumor is in the left or right breast; prior chemotherapy; prior or concurrent trastuzumab or endocrine therapy; and breast size, provided that homogenous dosing can be achieved. It may be independent of the following factors: hormone receptor status; HER2 receptor status; margin status following surgical resection; and age.For patients with DCIS, hypofractionated WBI may be used as an alternative to conventional fractionation.Radiation BoostAll decisions related to use and dosing of the boost should be discussed between the patient and provider(s) and consider individual patient, tumor and treatment factors. These decisions also should be independent of whether the patient received conventional or hypofractionated WBI;For invasive cancer cases, a tumor bed boost is recommended for patients with a positive margin following surgical resection, patients age 50 and younger, and patients age 51 to 70 if they have a high-grade tumor. Omitting a tumor bed boost is suggested for patients with invasive cancer who are older than 70 and have low-to-intermediate-grade, hormone-positive tumors resected with widely negative margins;For DCIS, a boost is recommended for patients age 50 and younger, patients with high-grade tumors and/or those with positive or close margins following resection. A boost may be omitted for patients with DCIS who are older than 50; have been screen detected; have smaller, low-to-intermediate grade tumors; and have widely negative margins following surgery; andRecommendations for boost dosing, sequencing and radiation delivery techniques are outlined in the guideline.Preferred Techniques for Treatment PlanningTreatment plans should be individualized after consideration of many factors, including tumor characteristics, patient anatomy and comorbidities;Three-dimensional conformal (3-D CRT) treatment planning with a forward planned, field-in-field technique is recommended to achieve homogenous radiation dosing and full coverage of the tumor bed; andApproaches that incorporate deep inspiration breath hold, target and organ-at-risk contouring and optimal patient positioning are recommended to minimize the radiation dose affecting nearby organs and normal tissue, including the heart, lungs and opposite breast.The guideline was based on a systematic literature review of studies published from January 2009 through January 2016. A total of 528 abstracts were retrieved from PubMed, and the 100 articles that met inclusion criteria were evaluated by a 15-member task force of radiation oncologists who specialize in breast cancer, a medical physicist and a patient representative. The guideline was approved by ASTRO’s Board of Directors following a period of public comment. The guideline has been endorsed by the Royal Australian and New Zealand College of Radiologists (RANZCR) and the Society of Surgical Oncology (SSO).ASTRO’s clinical guidelines are intended as a tool to promote appropriately individualized, shared decision-making between physicians and patients. None should be construed as strict or superseding the appropriately informed and considered judgments of individual physicians and patients.”Radiation Therapy for the Whole Breast: An American Society for Radiation Oncology (ASTRO) Evidence-Based Guideline” is available as a free access article in Practical Radiation Oncology, ASTRO’s clinical practice journal.For more information: www.practicalradonc.org News | Radiation Therapy | August 16, 2019 Drug Accelerates Blood System’s Recovery After Radiation, Chemotherapy A drug developed by UCLA physician-scientists and chemists speeds up the regeneration of mouse and human blood stem… read more FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Proton Therapy | August 06, 2019 IBA Signs Contract to Install Proton Therapy Center in Kansas IBA (Ion Beam Applications S.A.) recently signed a contract and received the first payment for a Proteus One solution… read more
Sydney’s controversial $57 million White Bay Cruise Terminal received its first cruise vessel this morning with P&O’s Pacific Pearl docking with 2,000 passengers aboard.New South Wales Roads and Ports Minister Duncan Gay said the arrival was a milestone, that could give “unprecedented growth” for the industry.“Its vast arrivals and departures hall is designed to cater for 2,400 passengers at a time,” he explained.Mr Gay added that the terminal access road would minimise traffic disruption on roads around Balmain and Rozelle, a win for locals.”The public will also have pedestrian and cycling access to the waterfront adjacent to the terminal when there are no ship activities,” he said.”That’s the first time in 45 years the public has been able to access this waterfront.”The re-location of the cruise terminal to White Bay from Darling Harbour, in preference to a new cruise terminal at Garden Island, has been mired in controversy, with the navy refusing to give up its harbour side base, leaving Sydney with only one CBD and ocean side of the Harbour Bridge cruise terminal at Circular Quay.In the meantime, over at Botany Bay, the government says that fears a multimillion-dollar cruise ship terminal could be built at Port Botany by its new private operator without development consent are the result of ”confusion”, with the announcement on Friday that the NSW Ports consortium is paying $4.31 billion for a 99-year lease, a week after submissions closed on the proposed planning changes to accompany privatisation.The government said this would give Ports NSW powers similar to those of its present operator, the publicly owned Sydney Ports Corporation, but the freight industry says is unclear about the extent of the changes and has expressed concern they may have significant consequences for container terminal operators and the public.Patrick Terminals has raised the ”significant issue” of one clause in the draft State Environmental Planning Policy covering the type of development to be permitted, which says that wharf, boating or port facilities may be built without development consent ”if the development has a capital investment of more than $100 million”.Patrick Terminals go on to say, ”for example, according to the wording in this provision, construction of a cruise-line terminal and associated infrastructure could be carried out without development consent”.

Approximately one billion patented strawberry plants are planted worldwide each year.Strawberries are a top-earning invention for the university. In the fiscal year 2018, UC collected over US$7 million in gross licensing revenue.GPG will work with UC Davis researchers, plant nurseries and fruit producers to test the commercial potential of new strawberry varieties in the specified territories.“I greatly appreciate the effort everyone has put into creating this partnership. The dedicated and professional team at GPG will provide the university with a strong and well-established business for delivering newly developed UC Davis cultivars to several important international markets,” said Professor Steve Knapp, director of the breeding program.Rupert Hargreaves, director of GPG, said that they are excited to be representing the world’s number-one strawberry breeding program.“The quality of plant breeding, access to modern science, huge gene pool and impressive team of people give us confidence that varieties from this program will be at the forefront of international strawberry production for many years to come”, he added.GPG was selected by UC Davis because of the company’s knowledge of the strawberry industry as well as its expertise in plant intellectual property (IP) management.The terms of any individual licenses undertaken under the agreement will be defined once the commercial potential of individual varieties has been determined. The term of the agreement is for ten years. Del Monte forms new product development team …
