BJP urges Guv to call Shimla civic polls

first_imgThe Bharatiya Janata Party leaders, led by former Chief Minister Prem Kumar Dhumal, on Saturday submitted a memorandum to Governor Acharya Dev Vrat on the postponement of the Shimla Municipal Corporation elections.Seeking his intervention, the BJP strongly condemned the Virbhadra Singh government and the State Election Commission (SEC) and alleged that the SEC was working under the diktat of the government.The party alleged that the Congress, fearing a defeat, before the Assembly elections, had got the municipal elections postponed.The Congress had recently lost the Bhoranj by-election to the BJP, giving the BJP a huge boost.The civic polls were deferred on the grounds that the revision of electoral rolls had not been completed.The BJP alleged the revision, which was to be completed by May 5, had been deliberately delayed. Now after the special revision it will be over by June 23 and the elections might take place in July, the BJP said.Earlier, the High Court had directed the government to file a reply within two weeks on the delay in completing the election process and its failure to conduct elections before the end of the present civic body’s term.BJP activists had challenged the matter in the court, calling it “highly undemocratic, unconstitutional and in violation of Article 243.”last_img read more

Indian women cricket team loses warm-up tie but not heart

first_imgIndia women’s skipper Mithali Raj believes the team is well prepared for the World Twenty20. That didn’t look to be the case as they surrendered to New Zealand in their only warm-up game ahead of the main tournament that begins on Wednesday.Opting to bat at the Nondescripts Cricket Club ground here on Sunday, India folded up for 100 in 19.4 overs, a score which the Kiwi women chased down in 18.1 overs, though not without a hiccup.Only three Indian players – Amita Sharma (32), Harmanpreet Kaur (20) and Jhulan Goswami (14) – crossed double figures, while left-arm spinner Ekta Bisht was impressive with three for six from three overs. For New Zealand, captain Suzie Bates cracked a half-century.But the result won’t worry the team – not yet anyway – since it is coming off a hard preparatory camp and Mithali said it would take some time to adjust to the conditions. “We emphasised on practice matches at the camp. Also on our opening pair, which has been a matter of concern for us, and has hardly ever given us a good start. The plans are in place, and it is time to implement them now,” she said.”The conditions could help us, if they happen to be slow, but with this being an ICC tournament, we could get batting tracks too. We really don’t know what to expect. The last time the team was here was for the Asia Cup in 2004.”India have performed well enough to regularly make the semi-final stages of World Cups, but have struggled to take the next step. Mithali feels that is down to a failure in handling pressure.advertisement”It has a lot to do with pressure. We have had some amazing victories during the league stages, but we seem to crack under pressure in the semi-finals. This time, we have to learn to soak it up, because we have Australia and England in our pool, and in order to progress to the semi-finals, we’ll need to beat at least one of these teams,” the skipper said.There are as many as eight new faces in the squad from the one that played in the previous World Twenty20 in the West Indies two years ago.last_img read more

Strasburg, Nats Stifle Mets, 8-2

first_imgNEW YORK — Stephen Strasburg seemed out of sorts — with his pitches, his catcher and the home plate umpire.Then, as quickly as that 96 mph heater he zinged, he found his groove in a hurry.Strasburg overcame a rocky start and the Washington Nationals became the first visiting team to win at Citi Field this season, beating the New York Mets 8-2 on April 30.“He composed himself, he settled in nicely,” Nationals Manager Matt Williams said.The Mets had opened 10-0 at home for a team record-tying 12-game streak over two seasons. The Nationals, however, have won 15 of their last 16 at the Mets’ ballpark.Washington took advantage of yet another error by shaky shortstop Wilmer Flores to rally for its third straight win, matching its longest streak this year. Bryce Harper hit two doubles, including a three-run drive in the ninth inning.“Just know it’s going to come,” Harper said.Strasburg (2-2) appeared agitated at the beginning. In his previous outing, a loss at Miami, he got into a pointed discussion on the bench with pitching coach Steve McCatty.This time, Strasburg strayed to talk with plate umpire Tom Hallion following the first inning after a few close pitches were called balls. In the second, Strasburg gave up consecutive doubles to Flores and Kevin Plawecki and glared at catcher Wilson Ramos.Ramos briefly went to the mound, and zipped the ball back to Strasburg after a pitch. When Curtis Granderson hit an RBI single, Strasburg didn’t back up the throw home.Strasburg said he felt the Mets hitters were “on the same page as me.”“Maybe too predictable,” he said.McCatty visited the mound, and they sat next to each other in the dugout when the inning was over. Strasburg flipped his hand a time or two, apparently miffed.But when Strasburg came out for the third inning, he was a completely different pitcher. He wound up retiring 10 straight before getting pulled after his 100th pitch as the Mets threatened in the sixth. Ramos gave Strasburg a solid pat as he left.“More strikes,” Mets Manager Terry Collins said. “You look up and he had 50 pitches through two innings and then he ends up going out there and started pounding the zone with his stuff. He’s got plus stuff.“That’s one of the biggest differences I saw. He got ahead of us instead of us getting ahead of him,” he said.Strasburg gave up two runs and six hits in 5 1-3 innings, striking out seven.Jacob deGrom (2-3) was perfect through three innings. He issued a leadoff walk in the fourth and Yunel Escobar followed with a routine double-play grounder, but Flores fumbled it for his sixth error this year.Jayson Werth’s single, Ryan Zimmerman’s sacrifice fly and Ramos’ RBI grounder put Washington ahead. Harper’s double in the sixth set up RBI singles by Zimmerman and Ramos.DeGrom allowed five hits and three earned runs in 5 1-3 innings. Harper has reached base in a career-best 16 straight games.Nats center fielder Denard Span, on the disabled list earlier this year, left in the sixth. Williams said Span would probably get a day off because of general soreness after an active week in which got five hits in game, homered a couple of times and, he added with a smile, was “rushing for 1,000 yards.”(BEN WALKER, AP Baseball Writer)TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

Indian women’s hockey team lose 2-3 to Spain

first_imgIndian women’s hockey team put up a spirited fight before losing 2-3 to Spain in their opening match against hosts Spain.Udita (12th minute) and Gurjit Kaur (48th) scored for India, while Maria Tost (23rd), Lola Reira (39th) and Begona Garcia (40th) sounded the board for Spain on Saturday.India used strong attacking strategy to begin the first quarter on a positive note.The team made the first breakthrough when it managed to earn a penalty corner in the 8th minute but could not convert the shot.However, in the following minutes the forwardline worked together to support experienced Vandana who created a splendid opportunity for compatriot Udita to score in the 12th minute.India’s hard-fought effort goes in vain as hosts @rfe_hockey maintain their slender lead to win the opening match of the Spain Tour on 26th January 2019.#IndiaKaGame #INDvESP pic.twitter.com/v38eJaTw9THockey India (@TheHockeyIndia) January 26, 2019A reverse pass by Vandana was picked up well by Udita who made no mistake in sending it past the Spanish goalkeeper Maria Ruiz to take a 1-0 lead.In the second quarter, hosts Spain stepped up their game after the initial setback to score an equaliser in the 23rd minute through Maria Tost.While the second half saw both teams defend well to contain each other from taking a lead, the third quarter completely belonged to Spain as they struck two goals in the 39th and 40th minute through Lola Reira and Begona Garcia respectively.The fourth quarter remained tense for India as they fought back to make amends to their defensive lapses in the previous quarter.advertisementA tactical approach to their attack saw them win a crucial PC which was brilliantly converted by dragflicker Gurjit Kaur in the 48th minute.The following minutes were evenly fought by both teams but Spain ensured they upped their defence to deny India an equaliser.last_img read more

Caster Semenya to run in Doha as Sebastian Coe welcomes Cas ruling

first_imgCaster Semenya has made a last-minute decision to run in the 800m in Doha on Friday, which will be the last time she can compete in her favourite event before the IAAF’s new rules requiring athletes with differences in sex development to take medication to reduce their testosterone are introduced.Semenya’s agent has confirmed the South African has flown to Doha for the first Diamond League event of the season where she will compete against her closest rival Francine Niyonsaba – the Olympic and world championships silver medallist in the 800m, who last month revealed she was also a differences in sex development (DSD) athlete – as well as Britain’s Lynsey Sharp.Semenya was not at a press conference to hear the IAAF president, Sebastian Coe, welcome the court of arbitration for sport’s verdict on Wednesday as upholding the principle that fair competition in women’s sport should be protected. Caster Semenya Share on Facebook Caster Semenya v IAAF: the inside story of sporting trial of the century Athletics Bunting said: “While a majority of the three arbitrators said it was discriminatory but necessary and was proportionate, all three judges expressed significant concerns and reservations about the practical implementation of the resolution in the certain restricted events.

We believe the IAAF should pause and consider carefully what is the correct way to proceed. And we would encourage them to appoint an independent group of experts to look at the 1500m data.”If Semenya decides not to take hormone medication to reduce her testosterone levels to five nmol/L she could decide to step up to 5,000m without falling foul of the IAAF’s rules for DSD athletes. Another option would be to step away from the sport completely, a prospect she appeared to raise on Thursday when she tweeted: “Knowing when to walk away is wisdom. Being able to is courage. Walking away with your head held high is dignity”.The British 100m and 200m star Dina Asher-Smith, who is also competing in Doha on Friday, said she did not want to speak about Cas’s decision because she was not a lawyer and did not have “an informed opinion on it”. However she added: “Caster is my friend and I hope she is going to be OK.”Meanwhile the World Medical Association has reiterated its advice to physicians around the world not to take part in implementing the IAAF’s new eligibility regulations for classifying female athletes. The latest guidance follows a WMA council meeting last month where the doctors warned that compelling female DSD athletes to take hormone suppressants were contrary to international medical ethics and human rights standards.The WMA president Dr Leonid Eidelman added: “We have strong reservations about the ethical validity of these regulations. They are based on weak evidence from a single study, which is currently being widely debated by the scientific community. They are also contrary to a number of key WMA ethical statements and declarations, and as such we are calling for their immediate withdrawal.” Share on Twitter Cas tried to provide a clear verdict on Caster Semenya but left a tangled mess Sport politics IAAF “I think this is pretty straightforward and it is very straightforward for any international federation in sport,” he said. “Athletics has two classifications: it has age, it has gender. We are fiercely protective about both. And I am really grateful the court of arbitration for sport has upheld that principle.”Cas’s ruling means all DSD athletes, such as Semenya, will have to take medication to reduce testosterone for at least six months if they want to run internationally at events between 400m and a mile. It also appeared to offer some hope to the South African by suggesting the IAAF may consider delaying the implementation of its ruling in the 1500m and a mile “until more evidence is available”. However, speaking in Doha, Lord Coe rejected that suggestion with a flat-out “no”.Meanwhile Semenya’s lawyer, Jim Bunting, told the Guardian her team were already scrutinising the 165-page Cas document with a view to a possible appeal to the Swiss federal tribunal, which would have to receive it in the next 30 days. He also urged the IAAF to reconsider implementing its policy over the 1500m and a mile until it gathers more evidence and suggested an independent tribunal should be appointed.

Private Sector Entities Show Interest in Employing Teachers Following Job Fair

first_imgStory Highlights An increasing number of private sector entities are taking up the slack to employ teachers 300 resumes have been forwarded to eight private sector entities Teachers are being sought to fill a wide variety of jobs The Ministry of Education is reporting that following the hosting of a teachers’ job fair in August, some 300 resumes have been forwarded to eight private sector entities, which have expressed an interest in employing persons with teacher-training qualifications.This is in addition to about 1,000 teachers who registered with, or were screened by potential employers, many of whom were from the private sector.Participating organisations at the two-day fair included: the University College of the Caribbean (UCC), GoGSAT Limited, Sagicor Life Jamaica Limited, National Commercial Bank (NCB), Sandals Group, Kirk Distributors, Choices Career and Educational Services, Registrar General’s Department (RGD), Caribbean Maritime Institute (CMI) and the Jamaica Defence Force (JDF).Speaking with JIS News, Permanent Secretary in the Ministry of Education, Mrs. Elaine Foster Allen, said an increasing number of private sector entities are taking up the slack to employ teachers that the public education system is unable to absorb within the current budgetary constraints.“Teachers are being sought to fill not only teaching vacancies, but a wide variety of jobs for which their skills set is suitable – financial advisors, sales/marketing representatives, hospitality industry workers, and military service,” she noted.Assistant Vice President for Sales and Distribution at Sagicor Life Jamaica, Mr. Merrick Plummer, who attended the job fair in search of financial advisors, said the training and experience of the teacher make him or her perform well in the field.The job of a financial advisor entails the sale and servicing of financial security products and Mr. Plummer believes teachers are potentially good at this job, because “the profession of teaching causes the individual to be well organized, a great listener, goal oriented and able to explain the (insurance) policies and provisions.”Resort chain, Sandals, also made 35 teachers happy during the job fair by interviewing and offering them jobs.“I came to the fair on the first day and I did not get an interview. I am so glad I returned on the second day,” an elated Physical Education (PE) teacher told JIS News.Sandals had expressed a preference for teachers with training in Human Ecology, who are suitable for employment in the areas of housekeeping and food services, but the resort chain also has a place for PE teachers in its recreational area.At the end of the job fair, Sandals requested additional resumes of teachers trained in Early Childhood Education for likely deployment to its family-oriented resort properties.According to Janelle deFreitas, Counsellor at Choices Career and Education Services, “understanding personality strengths and weaknesses puts persons at an advantage to finding out what they are good at and the natural skills they possess.”Ms. DeFreitas, who was one of several presenters at the job fair, counsels teachers to begin by taking a quiet moment with a pen and paper to identify their strengths and weaknesses. “Once they have identified their skills, teachers should market themselves  by networking,” she says.The Ministry of Education is also developing a data bank of unemployed teachers, which it will make available to potential employers.last_img read more

Well be 3 trillion economy this fiscal itself FM

first_imgNew Delhi: India is set to become $3 trillion economy in the current fiscal, and structural reforms are needed to reach $5 trillion in next few years, Finance Minister Nirmala Sitharaman said in the Union Budget 2019-20 Friday. Presenting the first Budget of the Modi government in its second term, she said the Indian economy, which stood at $1.85 trillion five years back, has reached $2.7 trillion now, and is within capacity to reach $5 trillion in the next few years. Also Read – Maruti cuts production for 8th straight month in Sep”The Indian economy will grow to become a 3 trillion dollar economy in the current year. It is now the sixth largest in the world. Five years ago, it was at the 11th position. In Purchasing Power Parity terms, we are in fact, the 3rd largest economy already, only next to China and the USA. To attain $5 trillion economy and more, India needs to continue undertaking many structural reforms, Sitharaman said in her first ever Budget presentation. The minister said the government in the last five years brought about many big reforms in particular, in indirect taxation, bankruptcy and real estate. Also Read – Ensure strict implementation on ban of import of e-cigarettes: revenue to Customs”While these reforms were happening here in the Parliament, the common man’s life was being changed through Mudra loans to help him do his business, and through several programmes it was being ensured that his/her kitchen become smokeless, his/her house got electricity connection and women’s dignity was respected with the provision of toilets in homes,” she said. The common man was served even as major transformational reforms were being rolled out. “And for this to continue, we need to invest heavily in infrastructure, in digital economy and on job creation in small and medium firms. “It took over 55 years for the Indian economy to reach 1 trillion dollar but when the country and her people’s hearts are filled with aasha, vishwas and aakansha that is, when hearts are filled with hope, trust and aspirations, we, in 5 years, added 1 trillion dollar. Today we are nearing a 3 trillion dollar level,” she said. The minister said the target of reaching a $5 trillion economy is eminently achievable on the back of hard labour of the people of the country. “…their goals of human pursuit filled with their inherent desire to progress led by the dedicated leadership present in this House, the target is eminently achievable,” the finance minister said. She also recognised that India’s private sector industries, be it small, medium or large, have played a substantial role in growing the economy. “I recall the words of an eminent industry leader, who said that his company’s growth has always aligned itself with India’s growth, before and post-independence. So if before-independence, India Inc understood ‘Swadeshi’, today they understand ‘Make in India’. “We do not look down upon legitimate profit-earning. Gone are the days of policy paralysis and license-quota-control regimes. India Inc is India’s job-creator. They are the nation’s wealth-creators,” Sitharaman said. The minister said, together, with mutual trust, India can gain, catalyse fast and attain sustained national growth. “I wish to propose a number of initiatives as part of a framework for kick-starting the virtuous cycle of domestic and foreign investments,” she said in her speech. Finance Minister also announced a slew of steps to scale up India’s infrastructure including augmenting 1,25,000 km of rural roads under the Pradhan Mantri Gram Sadak Yojana at a cost of Rs 80,250 crore and creating a national highways grid. She said that steps were taken to boost infrastructure in sectors like roads, waterways, metro and rail. She also emphasised on the measures for a self-reliant aviation industry. “We need to invest in infra, digital economy and job creation in small and medium enterprises…Schemes such as Bharatmala, Sagarmala and Udaan are bridging rural urban divide and improving our transport infrastructure,” Sitharaman said presenting the full Budget for 2019-20.last_img read more

(Colombo Gazette)Related story: http://colombogazette.com/2013/04/12/police-bbs-block-peaceful-vigil/ “We have already secured evidence about several individuals, including their names, addresses, places of work, etc and if we are forced to commence legal action against such individuals in order to remove and stop the false, defamatory and terrifying statements, be advised that we will seek criminal prosecution where applicable and recovery of all legal fees and costs incurred herein as a result. While we certainly hope this is not necessary, we are prepared to pursue whatever legal avenues are necessary to remove and stop the continued false, defamatory, and terrifying statements made against us,” the Buddhists Questioning Bodu Bala Sena Facebook group said.It also reminded those engaging in the hate campaign of the Prevention of Terrorism Act No. 48 of 1979 and the Penal Code which states: 479.

The Buddhists Questioning Bodu Bala Sena, in a Facebook posting today, said that several individuals who participated in the vigil have now been defamed, slandered, and subject to acts of terrorism. The vigil last week was organized by a Facebook group calling itself ‘Buddhists Questioning Bodu Bala Sena’ and the aim was to campaign against hate speeches targeting any particular community. 2.

David Lingmerth wins 40th Memorial Tournament

Spectators were treated to an exciting weekend of golf at Muirfield Village Golf Club, where David Lingmerth secured his first win on the PGA TOUR, defeating Justin Rose in a three-hole sudden-death playoff at the 40th Memorial Tournament.Lingmerth finished fifth or better two of the first three days of the tournament and entered Sunday’s action 12-under par.  The win was his 68th tour event.  He was visibly excited.“I can’t believe it right now.  I’m so happy.  I don’t know where to go,” Lingmerth said.Rose entered the final day three shots back of the leader, Keegan Bradley, and held a three-stroke lead before bogeying the 14th and 16th holes, finishing the regulation portion of the round at par.“I pulled off shots when I really had too, coming down the stretch.  I would have liked to put myself in a position where I could have sailed coming down the stretch, but I really had to dig for it,” Rose said.A win for Rose would have been his eighth on tour and his second at Muirfield Village, where he won the Memorial Tournament in 2010, his first victory on the American tour.“It would have been lovely to win in the playoff, but there is a lot I could look back and think I could have done better,” Rose said.The Memorial, the annual invitation-only tournament founded by Upper Arlington native and Ohio State alumnus Jack Nicklaus, has featured some dramatics lately, as two of the last three finishes have been decided by a playoff, and four of the last five by two strokes or fewer.Originally from Sweden, Lingmerth has had success on the European Tour, but he is still cutting his teeth on the American circuit, and he was eager to play at Muirfield Village.“I had never played here, I wanted to come experience it,” Lingmerth said.Lingmerth, who had been heavily recruited to return to Europe for part of the summer, expressed his desire to stay in the United States to seek his first victory, honeyed by the fact that it came at the Memorial.“This tournament, hosted by Mr. Nicklaus, I can’t think of many things that compare to it,” Lingmerth said.In choosing to play the Memorial, Lingmerth skipped the Nordea Masters in his native Sweden.Tiger Woods, a five-time winner at Muirfield, finished two-over, good for 71st on the leaderboard.  He rebounded somewhat on Sunday, carding a two-over after an abhorrent Saturday, when he had a career worst single-day score of 85.Woods had previously announced he will not play again until the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay on June 18.  He attended the Memorial out of respect for his friendship with Nicklaus, whom he is still seeking to dethrone as the all-time major tournament wins leader.The Memorial, Nicklaus’ pride and joy, samples elements of some of golf’s great tournaments.  The invitation process is similar to that of the Masters at Augusta National, and Muirfield Village is named after a course in Scotland where Nicklaus won his first Open Championship in 1966.

Public Power DEI facing threeway privatisation carveup

first_imgAbout 30 per cent of the resources currently owned by the publicly owned and profitable company Public Power Corporation would be spun off to create a rival company, with a representative basket of electricity production units.The government expects the move will help promote competition in the electricity market by adding a new player to the market. The new company will own lignite, hydroelectric and natural gas power plants and have access to lignite mines, affording it a capacity of 1,400MW from lignite, 500MW from hydro and 500MW from natural gas. The plan has yet to set the terms and conditions under which existing DEI customers will be transferred to the new, smaller company. But a timetable says the new company will begin operating in early 2015.In the second stage, the state, which has a 51 per cent stake in DEI, will sell 17 per cent of DEI’s equity capital, preferably to a strategic investor. A strategic investor will buy up to 49 per cent of Admie and provide the management.This plan is expected to be completed this year. Source: EnetEnglish, ANA-MPA Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Turner Smarter Rebuilding After Harvey Will Be One Of Houstons Biggest Challenges

first_img 00:00 /44:21 Mayor Sylvester Turner says one of the biggest challenges the City will face in 2018 will be dealing with the post-Harvey rebuilding process in a smarter way that makes Houston more resilient and better prepared about potential floods.“It doesn’t make any sense to be building in areas that we know will flood,” Turner said Monday while a guest on Houston Matters and added that “in some cases, from a permitting point of view, the City is gonna have to say no.”As an example of neighborhoods where the suitability of rebuilding should be previously analyzed, the mayor talked about several apartment complexes near the intersection of I-45 and the Greenspoint Mall that flooded in 2015, 2016, and again this year because of hurricane Harvey.“We cannot provide funding for failure,” Turner noted, while warning that “the storms are not going to stop coming because we are not prepared.”The mayor also supported building a third reservoir in Houston’s west side, the same as Harris County Judge Ed Emmett did last week while presenting a comprehensive plan for flood mitigation, and praised the county’s initiative to buy out some properties that have flooded repeatedly in recent years.Additionally, Turner emphasized the need to complete flood mitigation projects such as the one for Brays Bayou.Click on the video below to watch Mayor Turner at Houston Matters: Listen Xcenter_img Al OrtizHouston Mayor Sylvester Turner was Houston Matters’ guest on Monday and said one of the biggest challenges the City will face in 2018 will be dealing with the post-Harvey rebuilding process in a smarter way.

WBI has been shown to reduce the risk of recurrence in the affected breast and increase the likelihood of long-term survival. However, recently there has been growing interest in using APBI, where radiation is used to treat only the part of the breast affected by cancer and the treatment time is decreased from several weeks to four or five days.APBI has several benefits, including a decreased overall treatment time and a decrease in the radiation delivered to healthy tissue and adjacent organs, but its long-term safety and effectiveness compared to WBI are not yet known and results of randomized trials comparing APBI with WBI will not be available for many years. In the meantime, guidance for use of APBI outside of a clinical trial is needed.The ASTRO consensus statement explains which patients may be considered for APBI, what constitutes proper informed consent for patients treated with APBI, which diagnostic imaging tests are needed for patients treated with APBI, how to integrate APBI with surgical and chemotherapy treatment and how the various techniques for APBI compare with one another.”ASTRO’s Accelerated Partial Breast Irradiation Consensus Statement Task Force developed these recommendations to serve as a framework for promoting more clinical investigations into the role of APBI in treating breast cancer,” Maj. Benjamin Smith, M.D., lead author of the study and chief of the Radiation Oncology Department at Wilford Hall Medical Center on Lackland Air Force Base in Texas, said. “It is unlikely that APBI will replace WBI for most patients treated with breast-conserving surgery, but further study may establish APBI as an appropriate and desirable treatment for certain selected patient groups.”For more information: www.astro.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more News | Patient Positioning Radiation Therapy | August 07, 2019 Qfix kVue One Proton Couch Top Validated by Mevion Medical Systems Qfix and Mevion Medical Systems announced that a special version of the kVue One Proton couch top is now both validated… read more 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 The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.
