Fine for Bailey after Iwu affiliation slur

first_imgLabour Club candidate Olivia Bailey was penalised on Wednesday for presenting a misleading statement about a rival candidate on her personal website.Dissatisfaction with the Returning Officer’s original ruling forced Olivia Bailey’s campaign team to unsuccessfully appeal the decision to the panel that judges appeals, Junior Tribunal.The statement, on Bailey’s Facebook page, said, “I am being open and honest about my political affiliations. All the candidates in this election have their own political views, nobody is completely independent.” Lewis Iwu claims on his own site that he “has no hidden agenda” and has described himself as an “independent candidate” in the election.Although rivals, both Bailey and Iwu are members of the Oxford University Labour Club, but only Bailey has their endorsement as an official Labour Club candidate. In contrast to Bailey, Iwu is not running on a slate with other candidates.OUSU Returning Officer James Dray originally upheld the complaint and reduced Bailey’s publicity limit by 20 poster stamps. Following an appeal that Bailey was entitled to express an opinion about her rival candidate, Junior Tribunal issued a ruling which stated, “Lewis Iwu and Olivia Bailey are in direct competition and so expressions of opinion about any other candidate are permitted. We do find, however, that Olivia Bailey is in breach of SO 3d7i since the statement “I am being open and honest about my political affiliations. All the candidates in this election have their own political views, nobody is completely independent,” is misleading in its implication that Lewis Iwu is not being open and honest about his political affiliations, when we have no evidence to suggest that he is not.”The panel therefore ruled that Bailey remove “nobody is completely independent” from her website and upheld the Returning Officer’s original fine.Bailey and Iwu refused to comment directly on the issue, citing election rules preventing them from speaking to journalists. Both candidates will stand for election as OUSU President next Thursday.last_img read more

US 36 Modified win goes to Clancy

first_imgBy Jacob Blair Chad Clancy was in the right place at the right time in winning Friday’s IMCA Modified main event at US 36 Raceway. (Photo by Judy Staley) Mike Houseman Jr. dominated IMCA RaceSaver Sprint Car action for the night while Blake Peeler held off Carson Mason for the IMCA Sunoco Stock Car checkers.  OSBORN, Mo. (April 19) – IMCA Modifieds provided one of the best races of the night Friday at US 36 Raceway, with Chad Clancy leading the way in a green, white, checkered finish.  The front three were primed for a battle to the end when the first caution of the race flew at lap 15. Clancy chose the inside lane on the Delaware double file restart. Bowers got the top and, on the restart, found the grip, shot around Clancy and crossed to the inside of Williams. He cleared for the lead in turn three as Williams slipped up allowing Clancy into second. Bowers was set to pick up his second win of the season at US 36, as he took the white flag with a healthy gap. Then into turn one, it looked as though Bowers car lost power and spun slowly, eventually coming to a halt in the middle of turn one. Brandon Williams had led the first 15 laps of the feature with Clancy draped all over the inside corner panel of his machine for most of that run. While those two battled, Steven Bowers Jr. closed in and made it a three-car battle.  The caution flew, setting up a green, white, checkered finish with Clancy out front. He managed the restart and make his way to Westfall GMC victory lane. Cory Wray made a late run to finish second and Clay Hale finished third. Chris Wright was the Karl Kustoms Northern SportMod winner.last_img read more

Esophageal cancer risk could be reduced by esomeprazole and low dose aspirin

first_imgBy Dr. Ananya Mandal, MDJun 5 2018According to the results of a phase III trial presented at the 2018 ASCO Annual Meeting, two simple over-the-counter medicines – high dose esomeprazole and low dose aspirin when taken regularly can moderately lessen the risk of high grade esophageal cancer in patients who are diagnosed with Barrett’s esophagus when taken for at least 7 years. Source:https://meetinglibrary.asco.org/record/160062/abstract The results of the ASPECT trial were discussed at the meeting that showed that these two drugs can reduce the all-cause mortality. In the combination is high dose esomeprazole which is a proton pump inhibitor (PPI). It can supress the production of gastric acids. It is given here at high doses – 40mg twice a day. The other drug in the combination is aspirin in low doses.The team compared standard-dose esomeprazole (20 mg once daily) with the high dose esomeprazole and found that the high dose provides a significant improvement in time to death due to any cause after diagnosis with esophageal cancer or high grade dysplasia after a medial follow up of 8.9 years. High dose combination showed a most effectiveness in reducing the risk of death compared to standard dose of esomeprazole alone.The risk of esophageal cancer is high among those with Barrett’s esophagus. It develops due to long term gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD) where the acid tends to damage the squamous mucosa lining the esophagus and when the lesions heal, the columnar cells are replaced by squamous ones. It affects around 2 percent of the population and in 80 to 90 percent cases gives rise to esophageal cancers.Related StoriesLiving with advanced breast cancerTrends in colonoscopy rates not aligned with increase in early onset colorectal cancerUsing machine learning algorithm to accurately diagnose breast cancerAccording to lead author Janusz Jankowski, deputy vice chancellor of the Royal College of Surgeons in Ireland and a consultant clinical adviser at the National Institutes for Health and Care Excellence, said that the study reveals the actual effect which may seem small because of the rare incidence of these events but the impact on the patients is huge. The lifetime risk of esophageal cancer is 2 percent he said. In studies such as these the number of patients needed to treat (number needed to treat or NNT) with the medication before one case of the cancer related death can be prevented is calculated. Janusz explained that the NNT is 1 in 34 for esomeprazole high dose and 1 in 43 for low dose aspirin.The incidence of esophageal cancer according to the National Cancer Institute’s Surveillance, Epidemiology, and End Results (SEER) Program is 1 percent of all new cancers in the United States in 2018 and the estimated rate of survival in 5 years is 19.2 percent. SEER says an estimated 17290 people will be diagnosed with this cancer this year. According to Cancer Research UK there will be 9211 new cases of this cancer this year. Jankowski said that in the last four decades there has not been much improvement in the outcome of esophageal cancers.In this ASPECT study patients from Canada and UK were recruited since 1999. These patients had over 1 cm of Barrett’s esophagus at the beginning of the study and did not have esophageal adenocarcinoma or high grade dysplasia at the start of the study. There were 2563 patients who were given either high dose or low dose esomeprazole alone or in combination with 300 mg of aspirin or 330mg of aspirin in Canada. The patients continued the medications for 8 to 10 years. There were very few (1 percent) adverse events seen with the medications. This was an important finding because for a drug to prevent a cancer or a disease, it needs to be taken for a long period of time and that means it has to be proven safe so that the benefits are more than the risk explained Jankowski.center_img Upper Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, Esophageal cancer.
