Air Canada ready to pick up the slack if passengers stranded by

MONTREAL — Air Canada has turned the tables on WestJet by taking advantage of labour uncertainty at its Calgary rival with a suggestion that it is ready pick up the slack in the event WestJet’s pilots decide to strike.The Montreal-based airline said the public may feel anxious about potential labour disruption after WestJet pilots announced they are beginning a 15-day voting period to give its negotiators a strike mandate.“With our extensive network and varied fleet, we are well placed to accommodate passengers disrupted by this situation. The travelling public can book Air Canada with confidence,” it said in a news release Thursday.‘We should have done this a long time ago’: Transat banks on new hotel division for growthUnion that represents WestJet pilots calls for strike vote to press for contractWestJet ready for June takeoff of ultra-low-cost carrier SwoopWestJet took a similar tack in 2011 when Air Canada was undergoing labour battles of its own.“People who may be potentially stranded do have options,” an airline spokesman said at the time.Analyst Chris Murray of AltaCorp Capital called the moves pure marketing, by highlighting the challenges facing its domestic rival while also promoting its service as an alternative.“It’s an opportunity to highlight challenges that your competitor’s may be having in a way to grab perhaps some market share,” he said in an interview.WestJet agreed late Thursday afternoon to 14 straight days of negotiations starting Friday, the Air Line Pilots Association said. The union has said that the airline’s management met with them for just 14 of the past 60 days of conciliation which ends Friday.While both sides face a challenge attempting to conclude the airline’s first collective agreement, a strike isn’t inevitable, Murray said.“Their relationship with their unionized folks is certainly elevating that risk right now because even beyond the pilots you have other labour groups which are looking to formally unionize and this may be the first of many processes to come.”Murray said ongoing uncertainty about a potential strike could hurt WestJet revenue per average seat mile, also known as RASM.Southwest Airlines said Thursday that it expects to see a one to two per cent decline in RASM as passengers have concerns since the April 17 accident that killed a passenger.“What I expect we’re going to see is probably something similar with WestJet in Q2 and Q3, as Air Canada took pains to highlight today.”WestJet reports its first-quarter results May 8.WestJet CEO Ed Sims downplayed the strike vote, calling it a common bargaining tactic in the overall labour negotiating process.A spokeswoman added that WestJet’s flight operations are unaffected by the strike vote.A 60-day federal conciliation period ends Friday, which marks the beginning of a 21-day cooling-off period, after which the pilots can legally strike.The union represents about 1,500 WestJet pilots and 500 WestJet Encore pilots. read more

Light therapy good for Parkinsons sufferers

first_imgGreeks are forefathers of western medicine, but Cleo Papagiannis argues the doctor isn’t always right. Papagiannis is a research assistant in the Bronowski Institute of Behavioural Neuroscience, where she offers light treatment therapy for patients suffering from Parkinson’s Disease.She says the medication prescribed for Parkinson’s can affect patients’ body clocks through increasing levels of dopamine, telling the body it is in ‘go’ mode when it’s actually time to go to bed.This can lead to insomnia, anxiety and depression.But with light treatment therapy, Papagiannis and her colleagues are bringing patients’ natural cycle under control.“Light therapy has been used for many years to treat depression and insomnia – to cure the winter blues,” she says.“So we thought, if we could reduce depression and insomnia, we could alleviate the drug burden on patients.”Papagiannis explains that light therapy is a closely-monitored, non-invasive treatment program, involving a very special, medical-grade light.“If you had it sitting in the lounge room, you’d just think it was a very strong light,” she says.“But it’s a whole lot more.”Patients in the program sit in front of the light for an hour every day.She says the benefits of light therapy aren’t well-known among the Greek-Australian community.“My dad, for example, will go to the doctor and come home with medication, and he doesn’t know what it’s for or what it does,” she says.“That’s how we’ve been brought up – not to question. The doctor knows what they’re doing!”But she says light therapy treatments have had great results. While it’s important for Parkinson’s patients to maintain their medication, she says those she sees are able to maintain a low dose. Parkinson’s Victoria CEO, Glenn Mahoney, says more research is needed to see if light treatment can impact Parkinson’s disease itself, but he can see the benefits.“If it helps people to relax, to sleep better, then that’s a good thing,” he says.“Beyond that, in terms of altering medication, that requires further trials.” “But if light therapy helps, then it’s a good thing,” he says.Papagiannis says the Bronowski Institute is only clinic using light therapy treatment on Parkinson’s, and says Australia is sadly a bit behind in medical research.“Unless the USA or Europe are doing it, there isn’t much interest,” she says.She says a lack of funding is the main hindrance for light treatment really taking off.

Federal government approves killing sea lions in lower Columbia

first_imgSEATTLE — The federal government gave states the go ahead Thursday to resume the killing of California sea lions that feast on threatened and endangered salmon in the Columbia River.NOAA’s Fisheries Service said Washington, Oregon and Idaho agencies can kill up to 92 animals annually for the next four years. The agency expects only 25 to 30 sea lions will actually be killed.Since 2008, Oregon and Washington have killed dozens of sea lions that travel as many as 140 miles to feed on salmon as they hit the bottleneck of fish ladders at Bonneville Dam on the Columbia River east of Portland. “We don’t take enjoyment in removing these animals,” said Steve Williams, deputy administrator of Oregon Fish and Wildlife’s fish division.The practice has been opposed by animal rights groups. In 2010, the Humane Society won a court order stopping the killing, but this decision allows it to resume.“This hardly seems like a situation that requires fatal management,” said Sharon B.

Metro Hopes To Get More Riders With New Bus Shelters

first_imgListen 00:00 /01:18 – / 3To create its new network, Metro redesigned all of Houston’s bus routes, some of which had been in place for decades. Routes that snaked through neighborhoods were reconfigured into a grid pattern that crisscrossed the city. And some of the busiest routes got more frequent service. So how do things look a year later? According to Metro’s figures, ridership on the local bus routes was up 1.2%. But combined with rail service, Metro ridership increased close to 7%.Board member Christof Spieler says he’s encouraged by the numbers. “And I think what we’ve seen in the last year is that plan, what we imagined, that map we drew, has actually working exactly like we intended,” says Spieler. But Metro admits there’s more that needs to be done to get people to ride. And that includes new bus shelters.CEO Tom Lambert says they want to boost spending for shelters by about 25%. They’re hoping to put up about 125 new shelters over the next year.“So we’re going to try to speed up the whole movement of buses, so we need to make sure that the experience is good at the front door as well as when people are getting off the back door,” adds Lambert.  Building a bus shelter isn’t cheap. Lambert says once you factor in the engineering and design, the cost can go as high as $17,000. But he adds they’re looking at some new plans that could bring down that cost.   X To embed this piece of audio in your site, please use this code: Sharelast_img read more

Electronic Brachytherapy Effective in LongTerm Study of 1000 EarlyStage Breast Cancers

first_img Following radiation, the bone marrow shows nearly complete loss of blood cells in mice (left). Mice treated with the PTP-sigma inhibitor displayed rapid recovery of blood cells (purple, right). Credit: UCLA Broad Stem Cell Research Center/Nature Communications January 7, 2019 — Breast cancer recurrence rates of patients treated with intraoperative radiation therapy (IORT) using the Xoft Axxent Electronic Brachytherapy (eBx) System were comparable to those seen in the TARGIT-A and ELIOT trials, according to new results. The results, published in the Annals of Surgical Oncology,1 came from a long-term study conducted at Hoag Memorial Hospital Presbyterian in Newport Beach, Calif.The prospective study was led by Melvin J. Silverstein, M.D., medical director of the Hoag Breast Center, Gross Family Foundation Endowed Chair in Oncoplastic Breast Surgery at Hoag, and clinical professor of surgery at the Keck School of Medicine in Los Angeles. Hoag is a nonprofit, regional healthcare delivery network in Orange County, Calif., that treats more than 30,000 inpatients and 425,000 outpatients annually. The Hoag IORT series is currently the largest single-facility IORT series with the Xoft System in the United States. Researchers from Hoag have also published three additional studies on IORT with the Xoft System in peer-reviewed journals since 2016.“On average, IORT can reduce 30 days of treatment to less than 30 minutes. The benefits are obvious,” said Silverstein. “Eliminating weeks of radiation therapy reduces emotional stress and allows patients to quickly return to their normal life. The results of this study have important implications for breast cancer patients around the world considering their treatment options.”The study reviewed results of 1,000 early-stage breast cancers in 984 patients enrolled in a prospective trial from June 2010 to August 2017. Patients included individuals 40 years of age and older, with lymph node-negative cancer and with favorable pathology. All tumors were treated with breast-conserving surgery and IORT using the Xoft System. With a median follow-up of 36 months, there have been 28 ipsilateral local recurrences, ten of which were ductal carcinoma in situ (DCIS) and 18 invasive. There have been four regional nodal recurrences and one distant recurrence. There have been no breast cancer-related deaths. The low recurrence and complication rates reported support the continued study of IORT in appropriately selected women with low-risk breast cancer.IORT with the Xoft System uses a miniaturized X-ray source to deliver one precise, concentrated dose of radiation to a tumor site at the time of breast-conserving surgery (lumpectomy). The treatment can be completed in as little as 8 minutes, making it possible for appropriately selected patients to replace six to eight weeks of post-operative external beam radiation therapy (EBRT) with a single treatment. The Xoft System is cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), CE marked, and licensed in a growing number of countries for the treatment of cancer anywhere in the body, including early-stage breast cancer, non-melanoma skin cancer, and gynecological cancers.For more information: www.icadmed.comReference1.

The noise evoked by the 105-yard kickoff return that started the third quarter likely was heard in Tilarán and Guatuso. The extended delay of the game caused by the failure of the stadium lights in no way diminished the enthusiasm of the fans who packed both locations.

US airline probe would need proof beyond business as usual

first_img WASHINGTON (AP) — As the Justice Department launches an investigation into possible collusion in the airline industry, experts say the government faces the burden of proving that carriers were deliberately signaling business decisions to each other.Airlines routinely increase flights based on demand. A particularly cold winter in the Northeast, for instance, might merit more flights to the Caribbean. And sometimes, routes are cut because there isn’t enough demand. Nothing is illegal about that. Top Stories Any company can limit the supply of its own products, whether airline tickets, sneakers or smartphones. But it would be illegal for airlines to work together to limit flights in order to drive up fares.The government’s investigation is just in its initial phases. Letters went out this week to American Airlines, Delta Air Lines, Southwest Airlines and United Airlines. Together, those four carriers control more than 80 percent of the domestic seats on planes.Airlines are quick to say they can’t talk about pricing decisions. But in recent years, airline executives and Wall Street analysts have been much more open in discussing how the airlines have kept their passenger capacity — the number of seats they put into given markets — in check. With that capacity kept from growing too fast, airplanes have been fuller and carriers have been able to command higher ticket prices. That’s led to record profits.But were airlines simply responding to Wall Street’s questions about capacity, or were they illegally agreeing not to compete too hard as part of an effort to make more money?“Matching supply to demand is not a novel idea and running a company for profit is not a crime,” Raymond James analyst Savanthi Syth told investors in a note Thursday. How Arizona is preparing the leader of the next generation In 1982, Robert Crandall, then a senior executive who would become CEO of American Airlines, expressed his anger about these fare wars in a phone call with Howard Putnam, CEO of Braniff Airways.Putnam, who was recording the call, asked Crandall if he had a suggestion to deal with the problem. Crandall told him to raise his fares and he’d follow suit.Specifically, Crandall replied: “Yes. I have a suggestion for you. Raise your goddamn fares 20 percent. I’ll raise mine the next morning.” He said: “You’ll make more money and I will too.”The Justice Department sued and the case was settled for little more than an agreement by Crandall to keep a written record of all of his contact with other airline executives for two years.It’s unclear if there is a similar smoking-gun comment today.Airline executives have been talking publicly about how they’ve learned not to add capacity too fast. But no statement appears to be as blatant as Crandall’s.After a brief industry increase in seats in the spring, American Airlines CEO Doug Parker spoke about the need for capacity discipline to a Reuters reporter at the International Air Transport Association’s annual conference in Miami.

As the Justice Department launches an investigation into possible collusion in the airline industry, experts say the government faces the burden of proving that the carriers were deliberately signaling business decisions to each other. (AP Photo/Matt Rourke, File) Antitrust law draws a line between the entirely lawful practice of companies’ following each other’s behavior and companies illegally conspiring. The Justice Department appears to be hunting for communications and other signals that cross that boundary, said Andrew Gavil, who teaches antitrust law at Howard University.“The distinction involves whether or not there was really express or intentional coordination by two firms,” he said.It’s too early to know where the investigation is going. But if the government does find evidence of improper collusion, it could attempt to negotiate a consent decree with the airlines to stop them from certain behavior, such as issuing public statements about their intentions about capacity.Ever since the government stopped regulating routes and prices in 1978, airlines have struggled to avoid nasty and unprofitable fare wars. Historically, when the price of jet fuel fell, one airline would launch a new route or add extra flights on existing ones. Fares would be slashed to attract fliers and other airlines would be forced to match the new, lower fare.Airlines didn’t like it, but legally they couldn’t coordinate routes or fares. The difference between men and women when it comes to pain 3 international destinations to visit in 2019 Mesa family survives lightning strike to home Here’s how to repair and patch damaged drywall Ex-FBI agent details raid on Phoenix body donation facility Sponsored Stories “The real question is,” Parker said, “is this a one-time catch-up for fuel prices being lower, or is this airlines behaving like airlines used to and just increasing capacity because times are good? I don’t know if we know the answer to that yet.”A few weeks earlier, the United Airlines chief financial officer, John D. Rainey, spoke at a conference for Wall Street analysts and investors.“We are a big believer in the right balance between supply and demand, and we’ve demonstrated that with our capacity discipline,” Rainey said. “We’ve grown our (available seat miles) at less than GDP for eight consecutive years, and so we’ll continue to believe in that.”A government investigation could take years.Jonathan Baker, an antitrust law professor at American University, said investigations like this one generally need more than just circumstantial evidence. A case with explicit discussion between executives would be easy to prove. The harder challenge is one where collusion would need to be inferred from statements by executives to analysts, and other signaling.__Mayerowitz reported from New York, Koenig from Dallas.last_img read more
