Companies in this story: (TSX:CNQ) CALGARY — Canadian Natural Resources Ltd. says its partner in an deep water offshore drilling project in South Africa is reporting a “significant gas condensate” discovery.The Calgary-based company best known for its Alberta oilsands production traded an ownership stake in the offshore exploration block known for its challenging sea conditions to Total S.A. in 2013, in return for the French oil giant taking over as operator and covering initial exploration costs.Kevin McLachlan, Total’s senior vice-president of exploration, says in a news release that the discovery is “a new world-class gas and oil play,” adding the company and its partners plan to acquire 3D seismic scans this year, followed by up to four more exploration wells.Canadian Natural owns 20 per cent of the joint venture, Total holds 45 per cent, Qatar Petroleum owns 25 per cent and Main Street, a South African consortium, has 10 per cent.Canadian Natural says its portion of the cost of the exploration well in the Outeniqua Basin, 175 kilometres off the southern coast of South Africa, is covered by its agreements with the other partners.Total drilled a first well into the block in 2014 but had to plug and suspend it due to mechanical issues on the drilling rig. The exploration block covers an area of 19,000 square kilometres, with water depths ranging from 200 to 1,800 metres. The Canadian Press read more

Two other similar courts would be set up soon. In May, the Sri Lankan Parliament approved the setting up of special high courts with 119 legislators voting in favour and 52 against.Justice Minister Thalatha Atukorale said the new courts will reduce pressure on the criminal justice system and help speed up hearings. Around 100 state attorneys are to be recruited for the Attorney General’s Department to fast track the prosecution process through the special court, the IANS news agency reported. (Colombo Gazette) A newly set-up special court of Sri Lanka will on Monday begin hearing high-profile bribery and corruption cases including those against members of the former government, authorities said on Sunday.It comprises three High Court Judges, Sampath Abeykoon, Sampath Wijeratne and Champa Janaki Rajaratne. Those aggrieved by the decision of the special court can appeal to the Supreme Court directly, Justice Ministry officials said. read more

Services were conducted under tight security. While some Anglican churches cancelled the service and gathered at selected homes of parishioners for a private mass, others had their usual Sunday service. While the Catholic Church has cancelled its Sunday services for a second week following the Easter Sunday bombings, the Anglican Church has decided to continue its Sunday service, under tight security.Last Sunday the Anglican Church conducted services in most churches in Colombo but allowed the parish priest of each church to decide if it was safe to conduct the service or not. In a statement earlier this week, the Bishop of Colombo, Dhiloraj Canagasabey said he was glad that many Anglican churches had their normal Eucharist services with police and army protection wherever that was possible.“We need to be aware of security needs, yet fearless in worshiping the living God as we are accustomed to,” he said. He also called on all fellow citizens and Christians in particular to embrace the Muslim community who have lived in this country for many hundreds of years in peaceful co-existence.

UN Photo/Ariane Rummery (file photo)Two days before the official conference on the Small Island Developing States next week, UN-OHRLLS has organized a Private Sector Partnership Forum in Samoa, and hopes that this will be the first of many innovative initiatives to be announced that will benefit small island nations. Traditional dancers in Solomon Islands. UN Photo/Eskinder DebebeAmong the well-known icons included on the iTunes page are Bob Marley (Jamaica), Rihanna (Barbados), Cèsaria Evoria (Cape Verde) and Ibrahim Ferrer (Cuba).‘Island Voices’ will also spotlight lesser known musicians, such as Vanessa Quai from the Republic of Vanuatu, Dilli Allstars from Timor-Leste, Rosalia from Fiji and Imany Mladja, from Comoros.In a video-message on the iTunes page, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon emphasizes that artists from the small island developing States are among the “giants in musical history.”“Every day, island voices are heard all across the planet through music. They represent the spirit and aspiration of the people” said Mr. Ban. “Music helps connect these beautiful islands to the wilder world, influencing global popular culture” he added.The partnership was initiated by the UN Office for Least Developed Countries, Landlocked Developing Countries and Small Island Developing States (UN-OHRLLS), which worked with Permanent Missions of small island States and iTunes’ specialist music curators to create a list of songs and artists that reflect the variety and the quality of these 57 islands and their culture.“One of the chief challenges that all islands face is remoteness, and as such, connectivity to the wider world is a key challenge. iTunes is arguably the largest megaphone in the world, and what better opportunity to showcase the extraordinary and vibrant musical heritage from the small islands” said Ricardo Dunn, Advocacy and Outreach Officer for UN-OHRLLS. The “Island Voices” initiative (iTunes.com/islandvoices) showcases the eclectic range of works of 57 musicians from the world’s small island nations and features their songs, which can be easily accessed and purchased from the online iTunes Store.Drawing attention to the Third United Nations Conference on the Small Island Developing States , scheduled to take place from 1 to 5 September in the Samoan capital, Apia, the iTunes partnership also coincides with the 2014 International Year of Small Island Developing States , which has been designated by the UN to celebrate the remarkable diversity, culture and heritage of small islands throughout the world.The dedicated page on iTunes aims to promote the diversity of music from the islands and its contribution to international music, and will feature the best works from the Caribbean, Pacific and Indian Ocean islands, celebrate many of gifted singers and songwriters and promote music across multiple genres, from reggae to calypso, and from hip-hop to jazz and dance. read more

Jasarevic In his statement, the Emergency Relief Coordinator also said he was “gravely concerned” over the deteriorating situation in other besieged areas in Syria where people have little physical protection and limited access to basic life-saving assistance, including the neighbourhood of Al Waer in Homs city. “Despite the reports of a current pause in fighting, the estimated 75,000 people in Al Waer have been subjected to an increase in indiscriminate and aerial attacks over the past week causing the death and injury of many civilians, including children, the reported destruction of homes and first responder stations, as well as increased restrictions on freedom of movement,” Mr. O’Brien noted. He once again reiterated his call on all parties for the immediate lifting of sieges of civilians in Syria, including Madaya, Deir-Ez-Zor city, Douma, Foah and Kefraya and other besieged locations, for an end to indiscriminate attacks on civilian-populated areas and civilian infrastructure, and to take all necessary measures to ensure protection for all civilians as required under international humanitarian and human rights law. “The UN was not a party to this agreement, and was not informed of the evacuation until a few hours before it took place,” the Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs and Emergency Relief Coordinator, Stephen O’Brien, said in an overnight statement. Let us be clear, all sieges, a medieval tactic, must be lifted. This should not be through any type of agreement which results in the forced displacement of the civilian population.“The United Nations works on the ground at the request of both the Government of Syria and the people of Darayya to address humanitarian and protection needs of all those affected by the evacuation,” Mr. O’Brien added, “however, agreements resulting in a mass evacuation of civilians after a prolonged period of besiegement do not comply with international humanitarian law and human rights law.”The UN official said the evacuation should not be precedent setting for other besieged areas in Syria, and those displaced should be allowed to return voluntarily, in safety and in dignity, to their homes as soon as the situation allows it. “Let us be clear, all sieges, a medieval tactic, must be lifted,” Mr. O’Brien said. “This should not be through any type of agreement which results in the forced displacement of the civilian population.” According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs – which Mr. O’Brien heads –the evacuation of Darayya on 26-27 August followed four years of unrelenting siege, during which children starved, people resorted to eating grass and the town was subjected to an onslaught of fighting, including aerial bombardment, and severe restrictions on freedom of movement for civilians, as well as on commercial and humanitarian goods. read more

Matt Grootjen (BBA ’13) is this week’s Conversations with Goodman podcast guest.Grootjen, who works as a strategy consultant in Toyota Canada’s Strategic Development Centre, talks about his experience at Brock’s Goodman School of Business and how it helped him launch his business career.Grootjen was already familiar with Toyota Canada by the time he graduated since he’d already worked there for eight months on two co-op work terms.For him, his co-op experience meant applying what he had learned through classes, but also skill development to become a better business professional.A highlight of his time at Brock’s Goodman School of Business was his international exchange experience where he spent five months in France at NEOMA Business School.“I would say of all my experiences at university, the international exchange was probably number one. The opportunities you have while abroad to experience everything that other cultures have to offer is just amazing and I met a lot of lifelong friends while I was away. I’m very glad I did it when I had the chance to,” Grootjen said.Part of Grootjen’s university experience was his co-curricular involvement with the Goodman Business Students’ Association (BSA), the umbrella organization for seven other Goodman student clubs), and Goodman JDCC, a team of students that competes with 13 other business schools at JDC Central.A unique experience for Grootjen was starting the A-Team Experience event as part of the Goodman Student Ambassador Association (SAA) team. The SAA is a student-led association that helps tell the Goodman story to high school students through the ambassador program and community events.“The A-Team experience is something we started to bring in prospective students to Brock before they’ve accepted (their offers) to show them what life at the Goodman School of Business is going to be like and how we’re a little bit different from other schools they might be applying to. We invite some of our top applicants from high schools from around the province and give them a taste of what Goodman’s all about,” he said.Grootjen stays involved with the University as an alumnus and returns to campus regularly to speak to prospective students at the A-Team event held annually in March. read more

first_imgHo Seung Yoo, director of Dongbu Daewoo ElectronicsCredit: INS News Agency Ho Seung Yoo, director of Dongbu Daewoo Electronics A financial manager who lost her job after she refused to bow to her Korean boss is set to win thousands of pounds after an employment tribunal ruled that she had suffered racial discrimination and victimisation.Misook McDonald said her “furious” boss had confronted her over her failure to bow at this at the start and end of each working day before she was suddenly demoted without notice and moved to the Human Resources department.Judges were told that when Mrs McDonald challenged Dongbu Daewoo Electronics director Ho Seung Yoo over being treated like a slave he retorted: “Isn’t that what female workers should do?” The story of the Korean custom of bowing to senior staff was revealed at the employment tribunal where the 43-year-old, whose father is English, was suing the UK headquarters of the top electronics firm for sex discrimination, age discrimination and racial discrimination.A reserved judgement by the employment panel stated that her claims for direct race discrimination and victimisation were “well founded and succeed.”The tribunal presided over by Judge Andrew Gumbiti-Zimuto heard that the British mother, from Sonning-on-Thames, Berks., said she used to spend hours of her day in the company director’s office “with the door firmly shut” before her job role was suddenly changed.She was signed off work over stress and told the company’s managing director Choong Sik Park that she was being harassed by Mr Yoo in August: “He said Mr Yoo was very angry that I had broken protocol by not bowing to him every morning when I get to work and I do not bow to him when I leave the office at night.”I didn’t want any opportunity for harassment to occur so I was avoiding Mr Yoo.”Mr Park revealed changes brought in by Mr Yoo in the workplace led to him asking “is he normal or is he mental?” after it was revealed Mrs McDonald and her manager had not come to an agreement over her job role amicably.The tribunal heard Mr Yoo was told he needed to reduce his staff numbers and gave her position in the accounts department to her former subordinate June Turner in a presentation to the company’s CEO.The MD said Mrs McDonald had agreed to leave the accounts department but voiced concern over Mr Yoo announcing the changes to colleagues.He said “in this situation I did think the timing was a little soon given the recent problems that had emerged between Mrs McDonald and Mr Yoo.”When I said ‘is he normal or is he mental’ – I was upset and frustrated with Mr Yoo.”After Mr Yoo shared a company chart which showed Mrs McDonald being moved to HR and her old finance managerial position given to her former underling, she wrote to the company’s former financial manager: “Mr (Kian) Tan, is this a fair way of telling me I am no longer in the accounts department? Do I not need to be consulted?”He replied: “You clearly need to talk to him, as usual he thinks he can do what he wants.”She replied: “I have already tried to talk to him on many occasions. I cannot continue to be treated like a slave.”Mr Tan told the tribunal: “It is very difficult to try to understand what he is trying to put across sometimes and I always told him that if you have any problem or anything you are not sure of, please consult me before you do any of that and that is why I wrote that.”A mediator for grievance hearings over her claim found “no reason to favour one account over another” and did not uphold Mrs McDonald’s complaint, the tribunal was told.Mr Yoo, through a translator, said he was “really sorry” for asking Mrs McDonald to make coffees but denied he asked her to bow.A remedy hearing where Mrs McDonald is expected to receive thousands of pounds from her company and Mr Yoo, will be heard on April 19.

first_imgWhen Apple unveiled the iPad 2 it not only wanted to get new customers buying the updated tablet, the company wanted to entice existing iPad owners to make the upgrade. Consumers were enticed by the thinner design of the device, the updated internals bringing a significant performance advantage, and of course an innovative new cover that was only compatible with the iPad 2.That Smart Cover is clever because it has multiple functions. As well as protecting the screen on your iPad 2 it also acts as two stands and takes care of turning the tablet on and off. It’s just a shame Apple limited such functionality to its second generation tablet.AdChoices广告But iPad owners can use the Smart Cover with their tablet if they don’t mind a bit of hacking using magnets and glue.Over at The Russians Used a Pencil they realized that the flat edge of the iPad could allow for the Smart Cover to attach. All they had to do was glue some rare earth magnets to the case in the correct position. Then the Smart Cover just snaps on and works as it does with the iPad 2. The only area where it falls down slightly is the upright stand position you’d use for watching movies. In that configuration the iPad doesn’t look completely safe and could fall forwards and damage the screen. It also won’t power down your iPad when covering the screen.While the thought of gluing magnets to your iPad may sound like a terrible idea, if the Smart Cover is one of the main reasons you are considering an upgrade to iPad 2 then this could save you $500 while you wait for iPad 3 to arrive next year.Read more at The Russians Used a Pencil, via Vimeolast_img read more

first_img‘The situation is critical’: Water restrictions being rolled out as temperatures hit 30 degrees Overnight restrictions have been put in place in some areas of Longford. http://jrnl.ie/4095414 Share261 Tweet Email1 Jun 27th 2018, 5:22 PM Updated Jun 27th 2018, 6:26 PM WATER RESTRICTIONS HAVE been put in place in Co Longford, Co Westmeath and Co Laois as the high temperatures continue today.A Status Yellow heat warning has been issued by Met Éireann for the coming days, and the forecaster says temperatures will peak at 30 degrees for the next three days.Irish Water said that the restrictions are being put in place to preserve water levels in a number of areas in the country.The restrictions in Longford will be in place every evening between 10.30pm and 7am until Monday. The affected areas in Longford can be found here.Water containers are currently in place in Granard Kill cemetery.The restrictions in Westmeath, in parts of Athlone town and surrounding areas, will be in place tonight and tomorrow from 10pm to 6am on both nights.Laois restrictions will be in place from 10pm to 6am today, tomorrow and Saturday night. Impacted areas of Laois are The Swan, Wolfhill, Mayo and Doonane.Alongside Longford, some areas in Athlone, Kilkenny and north Dublin have experienced outages so far.Areas in Donegal, Limerick, Galway and Mullingar have been identified as being at risk.Demand for waterIrish Water has also said that demand for water in the Greater Dublin Area has risen to concerning levels, where the utility can produce 610 million litres of water per day.In the summer of 2017, an average of 565 megalitres of water per day was used. In the past 24 hours, demand reached 603 megalitres, which was down marginally from the previous 24 hours where demand reached 609 megalitres.Irish Water said it is very concerned about the possibility of having to impose restrictions in the long-term.It said that in many of its schemes around the country, supply and demand was already under pressure and the spell of warm weather has exacerbated the situation.Demand for water is increasing while levels in rivers and lakes are dropping significantly which means that is there is less water available to treat and supply to homes and businesses.“We are very grateful to the public for all its efforts to conserve water. As we can see from the drop in demand in the Greater Dublin Area overnight, every small measure has a positive impact,” Irish Water’s corporate affairs manager Kate Gannon said.However, she noted that there is a “long way to go” before water levels are back to normal. Image: Eamonn Farrell via RollingNews.ie 96 Comments If the drought is prolonged, water restrictions would become unavoidable if demand does not continue to drop.“Irish Water is appealing to the public to continue to be mindful of their water usage,” Gannon said.The top three measures that people can take to reduce water usage are to not use a hose to water the garden or wash cars, to keep paddle pools very shallow if they are being used, and taking short showers rather than baths.“The situation remains critical and we are continuing to seek the public’s help. Every effort the public makes to conserve water will help to minimise risk of supply loss to them and their community.”center_img By Hayley Halpin Wednesday 27 Jun 2018, 6:26 PM Image: Eamonn Farrell via RollingNews.ie 38,025 Views Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

first_imgL’iPad n’est pas responsable de la chute des ventes de PCCertains affirment que le ralentissement que connaissent les ventes de PC est dû à l’apparition sur le marché des tablettes tactiles telles que l’iPad. Faux, répond une étude menée par le cabinet NPD Group. Les acheteurs seraient en effet peu nombreux à renoncer à un PC pour lui préférer un iPad, qui représentent 80% des ventes de tablettes.Dans un communiqué cité par RTL, Stephen Baker, du NPD Group, dévoile les résultats d’une étude menée sur la récente chute des ventes de PC, et l’apparition des tablettes. Si celles-ci sont tenues pour responsables de ce ralentissement du marché, l’étude révèle que le nombre d’acheteurs choisissant une tablette plutôt qu’un PC est en recul. Parmi les personnes ayant acheté un iPad il y a au moins six mois, seuls 14% ont préféré la tablette à un PC. Et lors des fêtes de fin d’année, ce taux est passé à 12%. Quant au nombre d’acheteurs récents d’iPad ayant renoncé à un PC, il aurait baissé de 50%.À lire aussiL’étonnant récit de la toute première cyberattaque de l’HistoirePour le NPD Group, les difficultés que rencontre le marché du PC ont commencé avant le développement des tablettes. “L’explosion des ventes d’ordinateurs lors du lancement de Windows 7, ainsi que la très forte croissance des ventes de netbooks à cette période, expliquent bien plus que l’iPad la faiblesse de la croissance des ventes de PC”, estime Stephen Baker. Et de souligner que le marché des netbooks a bien plus souffert de l’apparition des tablettes que celui du PC, accusant une baisse de 25% d’octobre 2010 à mars 2011.Mais une précédente étude, publiée par Nielsen le 5 mai dernier, a mené à la conclusion inverse, affirmant que 77% des propriétaires de tablettes les utilisent pour faire ce qu’ils faisaient avant sur leurs ordinateurs.Le 12 mai 2011 à 16:31 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

first_imgTOKYO — North Korean voters will make a choice Sunday when they elect a new national legislature, but not for a candidate. The ruling elite have already done that for them, and there’s only one per district.They get to vote “yes” or “no.” Virtually all pick “yes.”One thing they don’t get to decide is whether to bother voting. Going to the polls is expected of all eligible voters, which effectively makes North Korean elections a powerful tool for checking up on the people.For outsiders trying to figure out what’s going on in North Korean politics, Sunday’s elections for the Supreme People’s Assembly may shed some light on what personalities are currently in favor and likely to dominate in the years ahead. For North Korean authorities, the elections provide both a veneer of democracy and a means of monitoring the whereabouts and loyalties of average citizens.Colorful posters urging citizens to go to the polls line the streets in Pyongyang and other cities. Along with nearly 700 other “deputies” expected to be seated in the new assembly, supreme leader Kim Jong Un himself has announced his candidacy — in District 111 on sacred Mount Paekdu.Official turnout rates in North Korean elections are generally reported at over 99 percent, a practice inspired by the tradition of Stalin’s Soviet Union. Sunday’s will likely be the same.last_img read more

first_img#Countdown2WonderWoman 17 days!!Check out one of the tie-in posters for the Chinese market. pic.twitter.com/QBhA3qJHFD— Nicola Scott (@NicolaScottArt) May 15, 2017Gamespot points out that American movies have a history of getting cool takes on movie posters in Asian countries. Like one for Kong: Skull Island that made it look like a classic kaiju monster movie. As much as I’d love to see this poster in American movie theaters, I can see why it’s not. It could possibly make you think you’re about to watch a Wonder Woman anime. Which… thinking about it, that would be awesome! Hey DC, where’s our Wonder Woman anime series?Finally, even with two DCEU movies right around the corner, some are already thinking about its distant future. Specifically, some are wondering if they’ll ever get around to making a Green Arrow movie, according to Movie Web. Though there’s been no serious talk of one, Charlie Hunnam has said he would like to play the character. The idea was floated to him first in an interview back in March for The Lost City of Z. He wasn’t too excited about it, saying he didn’t grow up with comics and had no real interest in superheroes.Fair enough, but more recently, Hunnam appears to have had a change of heart. Enough fans want to see him as Oliver Queen that he’s opened up to the idea. He still doesn’t know the character at all, but he asked the interviewer if he looks like Green Arrow. The interview told him that he does, in fact, look like the character in the comics. That was enough for him. “Well, come on DC, what’s up? Give me a call; I’m here.” It’s a good time to be a DC fan, at least as far as TV is concerned. On the CW, DC superheroes rule the network with Arrow, The Flash, Legends of Tomorrow and Supergirl. Now, another DC hero is joining the network. Black Lightning will premiere at midseason, which generally means January 2018. That’s aways off, but we already have the first trailer for the upcoming series. Though it clearly has a different feel from the networks Arrowverse shows, it doesn’t look any less fun. There’s a lot of great-looking superhero action here.If it feels separate from the Arrowverse shows, that may be by design. Though, like the other DC superhero series on the network, Black Lightning is produced by Greg Berlanti, it’s not part of the Arrowverse. According to Deadline, CW president Mark Pedowitz says there are no plans for a five-show crossover involving Black Lightning. Even though they’re all based on DC comics, they won’t take place in the same universe. Keep in mind, this all comes with a big “for now” attached to the end of the sentence. Just because it doesn’t happen in the first season doesn’t mean it’ll never happen. It’s not like traveling between universes is hard on these shows.Of course, Pedowitz did say there will be another big four-show crossover event between Supergirl, Arrow, The Flash and Legends. The alien invasion storyline last November was so much fun, and so popular that another giant crossover was inevitable. It’s still a fun stunt, and we can expect the network to keep doing it as long as we all keep watching. Let’s just hope they can keep the quality of last year’s event.Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman (Photo: Screenshot via YouTube/Warner Bros.)Over on the movie side of things, Wonder Woman is only a couple weeks away, and DC Comics is preparing for Diana’s first solo film in a really cool way. The publisher is holding a special event the day after the movie premieres where they’ll give away comics, and guest speakers. The event will be held in bookstores, comic shops, and libraries. Big chains like Walmart, Barnes and Noble, Costco and even Amazon will have special promotions to celebrate the character as well, according to The Hollywood Reporter.The free books include a reprint of Wonder Woman: Rebirth #1 and DC Super Hero Girls Wonder Woman Day Special Edition, which will have an excerpt from an upcoming graphic novel aimed at young kids. The guest speakers will include creators who have written some of Wonder Woman’s most memorable stories, including Greg Rucka, Cliff Chiang, Marc Andreyko, Shea Fontana and Cat Staggs.This will mark the end of DC’s year-long celebration of Wonder Woman’s anniversary. In the week leading up to June 3, DC’s website will put up interviews with comics creators and people involved in the upcoming movie discussing Wonder Woman’s history. There will also be some kind of comics sale on the site, which should come in handy if you aren’t caught up on Wonder Woman’s story in DC’s Rebirth universe yet.That’s not the only cool piece of Wonder Woman news out today. The poster for the China release of the upcoming movie is out, and it looks better than anything we get over here. DC artist Nicola Scott tweeted out the poster that makes the movie look like a Wonder Woman anime. charlie hunnam on playing green arrow…..its not a no ladies and gentlemen pic.twitter.com/911rO0ZWOm— edgelord allan poe (@haarleyquin) May 15, 2017He could just be being nice, but if Stephen Amell can’t play Green Arrow in the movies, Hunnam wouldn’t be a terrible choice. As the interviewer says, he does look like Oliver Queen a lot, and he’s a good actor. I already think it’s a huge mistake not using the wonderful Arrowverse for the DCEU (particularly the choice to pass over Grant Gustin as The Flash), but the DCEU has made their celebrity-shaped bed on that one. As far as Oliver Queens go, you could do a lot worse than Charlie Hunnam. Now let’s hope this hypothetical/probably inevitable Green Arrow keeps the politics of the character intact. Unlike certain other adaptations.last_img read more

This will offer a second source for the nuclear myocardial perfusion cardiac imaging agent.A DMF is a document submitted to the FDA that contains complete information on an API or finished drug dosage form. The DMF contains factual and complete information on a drug product’s chemistry, manufacturer, stability, purity, impurity profile, packaging and the cGMP status of any human drug product. The main objective of the DMF is to support regulatory requirements and to prove the quality, safety and efficacy of the medicinal product.Manhattan Isotope’s DMF submission initiates the protocol, procedures and compliance required to produce Sr-82 for radiopharmaceutical applications, specifically for commercial use in Sr-82/Rubidium (Rb)-82 generators. Sr-82/Rb-82 generator manufacturers may now qualify MIT as a supply source and vendor for API grade Sr-82. Manhattan Isotope’s DMF positions the company as the only commercial entity in the United States in the Sr-82 processing and production arena. Currently, the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) is the only domestic supplier for many of the more than 300 different isotopes, which are critical in medical, commercial, research and national security applications. Recent shortages have emphasized the importance of managing the demand for critical isotopes.“Our submission of the DMF is a very significant milestone, as it signifies Positron’s evolution towards a vertically integrated nuclear medicine healthcare company,” said Jason Kitten, president of MIT. “Positron, through MIT, is the first private entity to demonstrate the expertise and ability to enter the market as a processor and supplier of API-grade strontium-82. Proficiencies in this segment are key to our end-to-end solution strategy. Positron’s ability to supply strontium and support production needs will not only stabilize the source supply of strontium-82, but will also lend growth to and strengthen the cardiac positron emission tomography (PET) market as a whole.”For more information: www.positron.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | June 07, 2019 Amsterdam University Medical Center Wins MR Solutions’ Image of the Year Award The Amsterdam University Medical Center has won MR Solutions’ Image of the Year 2019 award for the best molecular… read more News | Radiopharmaceuticals and Tracers | July 16, 2019 NorthStar Medical Radioisotopes Completes Construction on Beloit, Wis.
