Garbage Truck Santas decorated rig rolls for 27th year in Whitehorse

first_imgWHITEHORSE — A familiar, if somewhat unconventional, holiday event resumes for its 27th season in Whitehorse but the man who’s better known as Garbage Truck Santa worries he’s celebrating on borrowed time.Semi-retired sanitation worker Wayne Henderson has decorated an old packer-style garbage truck with thousands of Christmas lights and has plans to drive it around Whitehorse spreading joy and handing out candy canes.  The rolling ritual was inspired in 1991 when Henderson was regularly greeted on his rounds by a youngster who delighted in the arrival of his truck.He has decorated a garbage truck every year since then, visiting daycares, schools and seniors centres, even keeping the tradition alive after 2012 by borrowing an old packer truck from a local trailer park when newly purchased city trucks could not be decorated.But Henderson says he’s been told the trailer park and the truck could be sold in the next year so he’s mulling a fundraising campaign to buy the old rig.He says he’d like to hit the 30-year milestone and then hand the annual tradition over to his son. (CKRW)The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Advanced 3D image system for better endoscopic surgery

first_imgReviewed by James Ives, M.Psych. (Editor)Nov 2 2018Keep 2D, See 3D! MonoStereo, a smart 3D endoscope visualization system, integrates the benefits of 2D and 3D function, providing an advanced 3D endoscope image for better endoscopic surgery.This surgical image breakthrough was selected by RESI (Redefining Early Stage Investment) New York 2018 Innovation Challenge Companies as one of the finalists who stands out from hundreds of competitors globally.”It is the first 3D image system which provides depth perception and spatial view of anatomy; however, the 2D functions, like zooming and rotating, are reserved at the same time,” said Dr. Kai-Che Liu, the MeidcalTek CEO. “It is both Mono and Stereo. You may keep 2D, see 3D.” Dr. Liu explained the brand name with confidence.Related StoriesBariatric surgery should be offered to all patients who would benefitGender biases are extremely common among health care professionalsFight for Sight poll: Brits put their eyesight at risk through unsafe contact lens habitsThe MedicalTek, a Taiwanese start-up, has a close network with IRCAD, a world class minimally invasive surgery training center. After years of extensive study from dozens of international endoscopic experts and 7000 surgeons from 60 countries in Taiwan and France, a software based MonoStereo 3D endoscope visualization system was launched.Since 2017, this advanced 3D image technology has earned positive feedback and high satisfaction among surgeons at SAGES (Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgeons) annual meetings. Either 3D image display, comfortable 3D vision, or detail perception on tissues and organs were highly acknowledged by a pilot clinic trail.”MonoStereo® 3D seems to be helpful for the therapeutic endoscopic procedures.” Said by Dr Gabriel Rahmi, Medical Doctor specialized in Endoscopy at the Georges Pompidou European Hospital. Over 120 minimally invasive surgeries with MonoStereo® have been performed by hundreds of surgeons in ENT, Urology, GI, GS, GYNE, and VATs.Diagnostic and interventional endoscopy is a fast-growing mini-invasive alternative to classical surgical techniques. The irresistible trend comes along with a huge capital investment, complex assets management, and cost of obsolescence….. The plug-in MonoStereo® 3D endoscope visualization system is a smart investment. It allows hospitals/clinics to have a 3D visualization surgery with a minimized equipment transition cost. Due to the superb compatibility, MonoStereo® functions well with hundreds of rigid, flexible and others endoscopes. There is no need to buy the new ones, nor to throw pre-existing endoscope, camera, and monitor away. It is a seamless connection, without any workflow change during the surgery.

Twitter to be added to SP 500 index shares jump on news

first_img Twitter, whose shares are still trading more than 15% below where they were at the close of its first day of trading back on Nov. 7, 2013, will replace agriculture and chemicals maker Monsanto, which has been acquired by German giant Bayer, a deal that is expected to close soon.The announcement came from S&P Dow Jones Indexes after the close of trading last night.The tech company’s visibility has skyrocketed since President Trump entered the White House. He has used the digital communications platform to tweet messages on topics from trade and the economy, to the NFL’s kneeling controversy during the national anthem without any media filters.The stock, which is up nearly 58% so far in 2018 and has more than doubled in the past year, closed up 3.4% Monday at $37.88. Twitter’s market value was an estimated $28.5 billion heading into Tuesday’s trading session.Twitter’s entry into the S&P 500 sent its shares up more than 5% in early trading Tuesday to its highest level since March 2015.The reason? The stock’s inclusion in the S&P 500 means mutual funds and exchange-traded funds, or ETFs, that mimic and track the benchmark stock index must now buy Twitter shares to ensure they have the proper weighting in the stock.The S&P 500, a popular index that many money managers’ performance is compared against, is also viewed as the best gauge of the overall health of the stock market. There is more than $7.8 trillion benchmarked to the index, with index fund assets making up approximately $2.2 trillion of this total, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices.Twitter, which is headquartered in San Francisco, will be added to the broad “information technology” sector of the S&P 500, a move that boosts the index’s already sizable exposure to tech stocks.Tech stocks account for 26.2% of the closely watched index, which is weighted by market value, up from 20.8% at the start of the year, according to Bespoke Investment Group. The index’s current tech exposure is the highest since November 2000. The addition of Twitter means individual investors will own an even bigger chunk of technology.”We are keeping an eye” on the tech weighting, Justin Walters, co-founder at Bespoke, told USA TODAY. “These levels have only been seen once in history, and that was near the very peak of the dot-com bubble in 1999-2000.”Technology has been a market leader in 2018 as investors invest money in a part of the economy that is growing rapidly, innovating and could benefit from an expected increase in spending by businesses looking to expand their operations. The tech sector of the S&P 500 recently broke out to new all-time highs. Social media platform Twitter will be added to the S&P 500 stock index before the start of trading Thursday, a move that will expand the number of individual investors who own the stock through index funds that track the large-company stock gauge. ©2018 USA Today Distributed by Tribune Content Agency, LLC.
