Transition in his family leads Colin Mochrie to champion transgender rights

first_img Twitter The funnyman says his tweet was partly prompted by the upcoming U.S. presidential inauguration, and the divisiveness that seemed to surround the election campaign.“My 90-yr-old mother-in-law and 87-yr-old mother love and acceptance of our trans daughter warms me. Wonder why some who are younger can’t,” Mochrie tweeted.He says his 26-year-old daughter Kinley, who was born Luke Mochrie, revealed she was transgender last April. The year before, she told them she was bisexual. “We knew this is something that she didn’t jump into lightly, she’s taking some therapy and is looking into hormones,” he says.For his part, Mochrie admits that he and his actress-wife Deb McGrath have needed time to adjust to using a new pronoun when referring to their child.“We knew Luke for 26 years so it was very hard to quickly change that. And even now, there’s still times when we slip. We’re certainly a lot better,” he says, adding that he’s noticed a generational divide among friends who learn about Kinley.“It’s unusual because all the young people we tell, they all go, ‘Congratulations!’ The people around our age, they all go (adopts a deep intonation), ‘How are you doing?’ They get very serious, like, ‘Oh. You’re going to lose a leg,’ or something.”Mochrie says his daughter came up with the name Kinley after consulting him and McGrath.“We had a bit of a bump at the beginning where she picked a name and it didn’t seem to go with her and we were all kind of pussyfooting around it. Finally, Deb said, ‘That name says nothing. All it reminds me of is my best friend’s dog.’ And so, again, Kinley went away and thought about that for a long time and came back and said, ‘You know what, I should have had you as part of this process because we’re all going through this together.’ ”McGrath suggested the Irish name Kinley to reflect her Irish heritage, and it stuck.“So we now have a Kinley,” says Mochrie.By Cassandra Szklarski LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Facebook Login/Register With: Canadian comic Colin Mochrie says he welcomes his new role as a champion for transgender rights after speaking out in support of his daughter.The Whose Line Is it Anyway? star says he didn’t expect to receive much attention when he took to Twitter on Sunday to ask why some people can’t accept transgender people, like his daughter Kinley.The revelation earned him immediate praise from like-minded fans who tweeted their support.

Half the world lacks access to essential health services – UNbacked report

“It is completely unacceptable that half the world still lacks coverage for the most essential health services,” said Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus, Director-General of the World Health Organization (WHO), in a press release.“A solution exists: universal health coverage allows everyone to obtain the health services they need, when and where they need them, without facing financial hardship,” Mr. Tedros added.The study, Tracking Universal Health Coverage: 2017 Global Monitoring Report, co-authored by the World Bank and WHO, notes that 800 million people spend at least 10 per cent of their household budgets on health expenses for themselves, a sick child or other family member.“A solution exists: universal health coverage allows everyone to obtain the health services they need, when and where they need them, without facing financial hardship” – WHO Director-GeneralFor almost 100 million people, these expenses are high enough to push them into extreme poverty, forcing them to survive on just $1.90 or less a day.“The report makes clear that if we are serious – not just about better health outcomes, but also about ending poverty – we must urgently scale up our efforts on universal health coverage,” said World Bank Group President Jim Yong Kim.Wide gaps exist in the availability of services in Sub-Saharan Africa and Southern Asia. In other regions, basic health care services such as family planning and infant immunization are becoming more available, but lack of financial protection makes it difficult for families to pay for these services.Even in more affluent regions such as East Asia, Latin America and Europe, a growing number of people are spending at least 10 per cent of their household budgets on out-of-pocket health expenses.Inequalities in health services are seen not just between, but also within countries: national averages can mask low levels of health service coverage in disadvantaged population groups.In low- and lower-middle income countries, only 17 per cent of mothers and children in the poorest fifth of households received at least six of seven basic maternal and child health interventions, while 74 per cent for the wealthiest fifth of households did so.The report is a key point of discussion at the global Universal Health Coverage Forum 2017, currently taking place in Tokyo, Japan. In addition to Mr. Kim and Mr. Tedros, attendees include heads of State and ministers from over 30 countries. UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres will address the Forum on Thursday. read more

Ohio State running back Mike Weber says he wasnt 100 percent will

Redshirt sophomore running back Mike Weber (25) runs the ball during the Ohio State- Oklahoma game on Sep. 9. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorAfter Ohio State’s 31-16 upset loss to No. 5 Oklahoma, redshirt sophomore running back Mike Weber admitted he was not yet fully healthy, as he has been dealing with a hamstring injury that he originally suffered early in fall camp.“I wasn’t 100 percent,” Weber said. “The goal was to come in here and help the team the best way I can and it didn’t work, but I did what I could.”On his third carry during the second quarter, the running back tweaked his hamstring again and did not return until the final drive of the fourth quarter.Hamstring injuries tend to linger, and Weber said he was told by team doctors that he should continue to expect tweaks throughout the season. Weber didn’t play in Ohio State’s 49-21 season opening win against Indiana due to the injury. After the game, coach Urban Meyer said the redshirt sophomore was “80 percent” healthy, could’ve played if necessary and would play against Oklahoma.The head coach restated that Weber would play throughout the week leading up to the matchup against the Sooners. But in Saturday night’s loss to Oklahoma, Weber didn’t reach the field until the second quarter and only tallied three carries, picking up 29 yards. He also caught two passes for 10 yards. Luckily for the Buckeyes, freshman running back J.K. Dobbins has filled in aptly and, once again, led his team in rushing with 72 yards. Weber said that once he is healthy, the duo will impress.“It’s going to look scary, actually,” Weber said. “I get healthy and he gets better each game. I help him each game and he helps me.” read more

Quickfire Pooran half ton leads TT Red Force past Canada

After winning the toss and choosing to bat first, Canada put a competitive 207 for 7 on the board.  The total was in the end comfortably overhauled by the home team, who made 208 for 8 with 56 balls to spare.Canada captain Davy Jacobs (37) led a team effort from the visitors, which also saw Bhavindu Adhihetty (33) and Navneet Dhaliwal (33) get solid starts.  Rayad Emrit had the best bowling figures for T&T after taking 3 for 58.In response, the Red Force found themselves in early trouble after opener Lendl Simmons (1) was dismissed lbw by Romesh Eranga, with just 7 runs on the board.  His opening partner Evin Lewis (25) followed soon after, as he was dismissed by Cecil Pervez, to leave the hosts struggling at 2 for 35.  A responsible 50 from 84 from Shai Hope then got things moving for the Red Force.With Pooran joining Hope at the crease, following the dismissal of Ramdin, the pair put on 104 runs for the fourth wicket.  The partnership was broken when Pooran was bowled by Sukhdeep Brar in the 33rd over, leaving the team in touching distance at 4 for 161 with wickets in hand.  Hope departed two overs later.  Kieron Pollard made three runs after lasting for three deliveries, but a solid 18 from 21 from Emritt was enough to see the team home.Brar was Canada’s best bowler after claiming figures of 3 for 39.

Spain celebrates the bronze medal

ManoloCadenas’ men insured there was nodeja vu of the 2012 Euro 3rd place match. Joan Canellaswho scored 8 goals tonight, paired with the goalkeeper Sierra who found his form tonight upon his merely average tournament to secure the Spanish celebration in Jyske Bank Boxen today. The bronze medal match came after a turbulent semifinal, which was married with harsh words and controversy mainly from the Croatian camp. Regardless of that, the team selected by SlavkoGoluža, who was previously devastated with the loss against Denmark, came to the Jyske Bank Boxen well focused and determined to give the World champions a run for their money. It was Spain who got the victory in the end 28-29 after an excellent performance from their key players. Despite Croatia showing a noticeable improvement in the secondhalf(15-13) after being 3 goals down at the interval(13-16),Duvnjak’s eight goals weren’t enough to stop the Spanish armada from winning their second European championship bronze medal in history.The fist half saw an equal contest between the two teams, as it was 7:7 mid-way through. It was a lackluster day for an otherwise very solid tandem of Croatian goalkeepers Alilović(3/12) and Losert(10/30) were subbed back and forth with no effect to their performance; Canellas was unmistakable from penalty with 4/4 in the first half to ad to their demise. Besides Duvnjak who played consistently throughout, the only shining example for the Croats was the right-back Buntić who was 4/4 from the field in the first half. Duvnjak who was 3/6 in the first half, followed byHorvat, gave a lifeline to the Croatian team as the duo drew level at 12:12 five minutes until the half time, but it was short-lived as Canellas and Aguinagalde brought the score to 12:16 upon a 4:0 run, before the youngster Slišković made it 13:16, the half-time score with three goals to catch for the defending bronze medalists.The beginning of the second period saw Duvnjakkept like a prized possesion by the Spanish defense, as Čupić lead Croatia into one-goal deficit in the first five minutes. Spain seem to be adding the throttle whenever they needed to, as mid-way through the second half Spain got a 3-goal lead with an effort from Aguinagalde, upon a string of excellent saves, from previously in the tournament less than impressive Sierra who found his form and motivation for this match, 20:23. Croatia came within one after Losert saved a truly awful effort from Maqueda. Kopljar was clumsy in the fast break, loosing the ball thus granting Sarmiento a chance to score from the breakthrough. Spain is leading by two, 23:25 as we enter the last ten minutes of the game.Aguinagalde increased the lead to 23:26; by the time Croatia couldn’t find their way past the goal kept by Sierra who was well beyond his first-half success rate.After Duvnjak decreased the difference to only one goal, five minutes until the final whistle;Losert was 9/25 successful in stopping Spanish shots,saving two in a row from Entrerios and Sarmiento, bith into the bottom left, with 26:27 the score. Saves from Losert marked the three minute goalless period married by turnovers at both sides of the pitch.  Last two minutes of the match it was Duvnjak against Spain as the World’s best player was the only thing keeping Croatia in this game. Duvnjak quickly responded to Aguinagalde’s goal to make it 27:28 in the last minute of the match but it was Pyrrhic victory for the amazing Croat, as he will finish the match on the bench being suspended after trying to cover for the defensive mistake from Vori.Canellas set 27:29 as the last minute progressed, but Sliškovićfailed to bring Croatia back within a chance by hitting the post. The experienced Igor Vori scored the last goal of the game, seconds after the miss from Slišković, but surely too late for Croatia as Spain were looking at the clock asking for a time-out in the very last seconds with the score remaining at 28:29, and Spain celebrating their Bronze medal all over the court like it’s gold.STATISTICSNEMANJA SAVICPHOTO: Bjørn Kenneth Muggerud/ DenmarkEHF EURO 2014Spain ← Previous Story EHF EURO 2014 “ALL STAR” TEAM: Nikola Karabatic MVP!

This laptop only costs 69

first_imgThere’s a real laptop that you can order right now for just $69. Yes, the whole laptop. Not just a replacement battery or a charging brick for it.Let’s clarify right off the bat: the $69 price tag is for the first 200 units that will be shipped to Azpen Innovations’ Kickstarter backers. But those supporters really will get an actual laptop — with a screen, keyboard, touchpad — the whole works. Azpen is crowdfunding development of the Hybrx, an 11.6-inch laptop that runs Remix OS. For the unfamiliar, Remix is an aptly named popular Android remix that’s been tweaked to be a bit friendlier to use on desktops and laptops.How on Earth did they manage to build a laptop that they can sell — even as a pledge perk — at $69? It all starts with the CPU. The Hybrx isn’t running an Intel or AMD processor. It’s not even using an Exynos or Snapdragon. It’s powered by a quad-core AllWinner A64. It’s not going to blow you away with its performance, but it’s plenty capable for basic computing tasks like browsing, casual gaming, and streaming video or music. The base Hybrx config will come with 1GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage. They’re also offering a model with 2GB RAM and 32GB of storage, and it’s only an extra $20 to double up. Sure, these are crowdfunding prices, but if Azpen can afford to let several hundred go at these prices it won’t be long before other manufacturers start pumping out similar configs at the same price points.Oh and don’t worry if the lower tiers are all gone before you get a chance to pledge for a Hybrx of your own. Just opt for the $275 tier instead and yourself a new primary laptop and two spares — because why the heck not at that price?last_img read more

This is drastically different from response rates for radiation therapy in this patient population, which are typically associated with poor local control and survival rates ranging from 10 to 30 percent at five-year follow-up, as noted within the study.The study followed three patient populations over an average 12 month period: 1) patients with primary stage I non-small cell lung cancer, 2) patients whose cancer recurred after it was surgically removed, and 3) patients with metastatic tumors in the lung. All patients were treated with CyberKnife radiosurgery over a three-day period as outpatients. These patients had limited treatment options because they were medically inoperable (unable to undergo surgery due to pre-existing medical conditions or prior surgery) or refused surgery.Additionally the study reported few of the complications or side effects that are typical with radiation or other more invasive treatments within the first 12 months of follow-up. Both invasive surgery and conventional radiation therapy can be associated with post-treatment complications that can negatively impact a patient’s quality of life. In addition, unlike conventional radiation therapy that is typically delivered over four to six weeks, patients completed CyberKnife treatment in three short outpatient visits. This is extremely significant for patients with a potentially life-threatening disease because it allows them to preserve their lifestyle and spend their time with family instead of taking trips to and from the hospital and spending months in treatment.”The CyberKnife System’s ability to non-invasively treat lung cancer with favorable local control rates and minimal toxicities make it an important tool in the fight against lung cancer,” said Dwight Heron, M.D., chairman of the radiation oncology department at UPMC Shadyside. “As demonstrated by our study, this is particularly important for patients who previously had few or no other options because it gives them a chance for a positive outcome while maintaining their quality of life.”UPMC treated all the study participants using the Synchrony Respiratory Tracking System, which can deliver beams that physically move in real-time with 3D tumor motion. The technology allows patients to breath normally throughout the treatment, while still achieving pinpoint precision and minimizing damage to surrounding healthy tissue. According to the study, Synchrony “can allow for reductions in planning target volume margins because of less movement uncertainty while maintaining the desired level of accuracy.”For more information: FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 Mevion and C-RAD Release Integration for Improved Proton Therapy Treatment Quality Mevion Medical Systems and C-RAD announced the integration between the C-RAD Catalyst PT and the Mevion S250i proton… read more News | Radiation Therapy | August 02, 2019 Varian Showcases Cancer Care Systems and Software at AAPM 2019 Varian showcased systems and software from its cancer care portfolio, including the Identify Guidance System, at the… read more last_img read more
