first_img whatsapp Wednesday 23 September 2015 9:08 am whatsapp If there were an award for the company that most shaped the retail zeitgeist over the past 10 years, then Amazon would most certainly be a contender. Its innovations have changed the way we shop.Such a pioneering status inevitably creates a great deal of interest.  However, along with the interest come some hype: including the belief that Amazon, with its Midas like touch, will dominate and thrive at whatever it turns its hand to. So it is with Amazon’s plans to launch its Fresh concept in the UK. The media has served warnings on the Big Four grocers, with words like ‘bloodbath’ and ‘battleground’ being used to describe the harmful impact on long established players.Such predictions do contain a grain of truth. With virtually no volume growth in the UK grocery market, and a competitive environment that is characterised by overcapacity, it stands to reason that any new entrant is an unwelcome additional pressure. Such is the zero-sum nature of today’s grocery market that any sales Amazon Fresh manages to generate will come from some other player.However, success in grocery has never been about just making sales. In order for the model to work, players need to sell in high enough volumes. This is especially true in online grocery where already wafer thin margins are exacerbated by the high costs of fulfilment. It is on generating sufficient volume that Amazon is likely to come unstuck in the UK.The main issue for Amazon is that that it is not entering a market in the early stages of rapid growth. Unlike in the US, where online still accounts for a minuscule 1.1 per cent of all food and grocery spend but is growing rapidly, the UK is at a more advanced evolutionary stage. Last year, some 5.7 per cent of all UK grocery spend was made online; and while the channel continues to grow faster than physical stores, growth is much slower than it once was.In some ways, a larger more mature market seems attractive, not least because Amazon will have a bigger pool of spend it can try to tap. However, one of the reasons the UK market is more advanced is because the players in it are sophisticated – much more so than in the US where the online offerings of the leading grocery retailers are few and far between. Unlike its launches in various American cities, the playing field in UK online grocery is not a clear one for Amazon. It will have to tackle, and bring down, some giant players if it is to thrive.Regardless of its ultimate success the launch of Amazon Fresh is certain to do one thing: keep the big players on their toes.

North Korea prepares for annual winter military exercises

first_imgNewsEconomyMilitary By Kim Yoo Jin – 2018.12.04 5:06pm SHARE Korean People’s Army winter river-crossing drill (January 2018). Image: Daily NKNorth Korea is busy preparing for its winter civil joint exercises that start annually in December. Preparations include the holding of emergency meetings for the country’s civil defense forces, Daily NK sources report. “Armed civilian units are busy preparing for the winter exercises all over the country,” a source based in North Hamgyong Province told Daily NK on November 30.North Korea’s winter exercises are similar to South Korea’s military exercises that are designed to test the soldiers’ mettle in difficult, frigid conditions. North Korea has paramilitary units and Worker-Peasant Red Guards (paramilitary force with older members and North Korea’s largest civil defense force) included in the training along with regular military units. Civilians conduct blackout and evacuation exercises. This year’s exercises will have the paramilitary training units training for the month of December, while red guard units will conduct them over two weeks.A separate source in North Hamgyong Province said, “The authorities are gathering armed civilian units to conduct preliminary discussions and political lectures in advance of the winter exercises across North Hamgyong Province, including Chongjin and Rason. Some units are preparing for the exercises by picking up supplies using trucks.”He continued, “The paramilitary training units and red guard units are wearing their winter uniforms and gathering food and other supplies to use during the training period.”Officers who lead the paramilitary training units, which are affiliated with unit members’ workplaces, are collecting resources from workers for use during the exercises. In reality, however, each unit member is deemed responsible for sourcing their own food for the period. North Korea has had a particularly difficult food situation this year. With a view to lifting the spirits of unit members, however, the authorities have handed down an order for white rice to be provided on December 27, when each unit conducts live-fire exercises (the day also commemorates the founding of the country’s constitution). Units are currently collecting rice for the event.“The farms have harvested their crops and the units have prepared corn rice for the training period. This means that individual members don’t have to collect their own food for that day,” a source in South Hamgyong Province said.“Military and reserve units will conduct joint exercises as if it’s a real war. Firing exercises will occur near the end of the training period. Usually the exercises involve unit members shooting three rounds each, but this year it’s only one round.” News Facebook Twitter Hamhung man arrested for corruption while working at a state-run department store News center_img North Korea prepares for annual winter military exercises North Korea hikes “party contributions” Russia-based workers must pay by 30-55% RELATED ARTICLESMORE FROM AUTHOR News AvatarKim Yoo JinKim Yoo Jin is one of Daily NK’s freelance journalists.

Correlation between cancer and fertility

Quality of life becomes an issue after a successful treatment. Cancer treatment lowers their ability to father or mother a child i.e. their fertility. Treatments like surgery, chemotherapy or radiotherapy can decrease ovarian reserve or sperms.Fertility preservation is a fundamental issue for individuals of reproductive age (both male and females) or prepubescent boys and girls whose future fertility may be compromised. There is consensus on the need to provide counselling about currently available options to all individuals wishing to preserve their fertility. People with cancer are interested in discussing fertility preservation. Fertility preservation is often possible, but to preserve the full range of options, fertility preservation approaches should be discussed as early as possible, before treatment starts. The discussion can ultimately reduce distress and improve quality of life. Another discussion and/or referral may be necessary when the patient returns for follow up and if pregnancy is being considered. The discussions should be documented in the medical chart.The discussion about their risk of infertility prior to initiating cancer treatment is a mandatory intervention for patients of reproductive age as per latest medical guidelines.Fertility preservation is saving gametes which are at risk of losing either by cancer or genetic disease. For men option of sperm banking and for females egg freezing are standard options which are usually available at fertility centres which can be considered before planning treatment. Cryopreservation (freezing) of ejaculated sperms is routinely used for fertility preservation in adult male. Success rates in achieving pregnancy have increased with the use of ICSI (Intracytoplasmic sperm injection technique). Cryopreservation of mature eggs or embryos is effective method for preserving female infertility. A live birth rate of about 45 per cent is quoted in a recent study of cancer women survivals. There are some options like donor gametes programme which can be considered in cases where reserve is already low.Multidisciplinary team approach with oncologists, fertility specialists, family physicians, psychologists, urologists, gynaecologists, counsellors is required for optimum results. Patients should be referred to fertility experts by oncologists and haematologists before initiating treatment so that adequate counselling can be done on the available fertility preservation options. Patients who have very high chances of premature ovarian failure like those receiving abdominal radiation or where high dose chemotherapy is planned, indication for fertility preservation should be evaluated.Timely counselling and intervention can provide these individuals an opportunity to preserve their fertility while they undergo treatment for the above conditions. Sometimes cancer survival patients are not able to focus on fertility preservation earlier at the time of starting treatment, they should not get disheartened. There are options of donor egg and sperms available which can be discussed on an individual basis. Hence, with improved assisted reproduction technologies we can fulfil desire of pregnancy in majority of the cases. Useful information. Thanks for sharing.

A Home for Heroes

first_img Email Stay Connected with the Daily Roundup. Sign up for our newsletter and get the best of the Beacon delivered every day to your inbox. Don Doane, who spent three years training World War II soldiers how to operate heavy equipment and shoot bazookas, believes cigarettes saved his life. Doane’s near-death experience came after his service in the United States Army, when he was back home in his native Flathead Valley. It was 1951 and Doane was hunting with buddies in the South Fork when one of the hunters accidently discharged his rifle. “The bullet went through the guy ahead of me and killed him,” Doane, 85, said. “Then it stopped in me.” A smoker at the time, Doane had two packs of cigarettes in his coat pocket. The bullet tore through both, but Doane figures the packs were thick enough to detour the bullet to his back, where it lodged near his spine. Today Doane suffers from painful multiple sclerosis, due to what doctors call a complication from the injury, but he knows he’s fortunate to be alive. “I think the cigarette packs saved my life,” he said last week in an interview the day before Veterans Day. Like other residents at the Montana Veterans’ Home in Columbia Falls, Doane is a story machine – deposit your question and he’ll dispense a tale. The nursing home is a place where you will hear endless anecdotes of lives fully lived, deaths escaped and genuine heroism. These men’s lives, and their stories, are interwoven by two common threads: war and the Flathead Valley.The facility is one of two veterans’ nursing homes administered by the state Department of Public Health and Human Services. The other is in Glendive, though it is operated in partnership with a local medical center, making the Columbia Falls home the only completely state-run operation, according to Administrator Joren Underahl. Underahl, who served in the Army for 20 years, took over last fall. According to the 2000 U.S. Census, Montana has almost 110,000 veterans, accounting for 16 percent of the adult population, one of the highest rates in the nation. Underahl is waiting for the 2010 Census numbers, but he figures the Treasure State will be near or at the top again. These veterans are scattered across the state, but a large concentration can be found in blue-collar Northwest Montana. Some residents at the nursing home have roots in the region dating back nearly a century. Veterans often carry scars, both physical and emotional, so a comfortable place to call home – surrounded by people who understand their plight – can make all the difference in the world, particularly as they reach their later years. It is the goal of the Montana Veterans’ Home to provide that service.The home was authorized in 1895, six years after Montana became a state. Two years later, the first resident was admitted. Today, there are 105 beds at the skilled nursing facility, including 15 beds in a special care unit dedicated to residents with advanced dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Additionally there is a 12-bed domiciliary for independent veterans who aren’t in need of nursing care. These residents come and go in their own vehicles. The home also provides transportation.All residents are either honorably discharged veterans or spouses of honorably discharged veterans. Funding comes from state cigarette taxes, the Department of Veterans Affairs, Medicare, Medicaid, private pay and insurance. The facility offers a pharmacy and occupational, physical and speech therapy. Other services include housekeeping, laundry, meals, financial help and activities. Last week, live music was slated for each day.“They really enjoy music,” volunteer coordinator Renee Lennick said.Underahl said the full-time equivalent of total employees at the facility is 143, though he estimates there are actually 180 or 190 individuals altogether. More than 300 volunteers help out as well.“There’s so much community support here,” Underahl said.Doane, who has been a resident for two years, cruises around in a wheelchair and tells stories to anybody who wants to listen. And at the veterans’ home, there’s always somebody who wants to listen. “I love it here,” he said. “As far as a rest home goes, it’s hard to beat. It’s just the way you’re treated. Everybody’s perfect here.”Name: Don DoaneAge: 85His Story: Doane was raised in Columbia Falls and at 18 he signed up for the U.S. Army. From 1943-1946, he was stationed in Fort Lewis, Wash., where he trained soldiers bound for combat in World War II. Using his teenage work experience in truck driving and heavy machinery operation, Doane taught soldiers how to drive big military rigs. He also taught them how to shoot bazookas.Quote: “You’d be surprised. A lot of the guys were out of New York or some other place and they had never shot a gun before. They couldn’t even put them on their shoulders. Teaching them to shoot those bazookas was real hard.”Name: Robert RalesAge: 82His Story: Rales was born around Ashley Lake west of Kalispell and raised in the area. After eighth grade, he quit school to work in logging. He was drafted into the U.S. Army in 1947, where he served as a machine gunner in the Second Infantry Division in the Korean War. Rales said he and another soldier replaced two gunners who had been killed.Quote: “I knew nothing about a .50 caliber machine gun. But it didn’t take long for me to learn. We didn’t have much to mess around and learn.”Name: Jack McFaddenAge: 74His Story: McFadden was born in Clinton and bounced around the West during his youth. After high school in Idaho, he was tired of working the railroad and signed up for the U.S. Army, where he was a helicopter crewman for 20 years from 1956-1976. He served in the Vietnam War and earned multiple decorations, including a purple heart for receiving shrapnel in his leg. He was also stationed in the U.S., Korea and Germany.Quote: “I’m one of the ones who’s proud of what he’s done. I have all kinds of buttons and pins.”Name: Clarence HoepfnerAge: 78His Story: Hoepfner was born and raised in Missoula and joined the U.S. Marine Corps after high school. He served from 1952-1954 and was stationed in Japan during the Korean War. At age 29, he suffered a nervous breakdown and underwent two-and-a-half months of electroshock treatment, followed by a year of psychiatric care. Later, physical and financial problems plagued him. Hoepfner has been in the veterans’ nursing home for 28 years.Quote: “I’ve been here a long time. They take care of you here. I’m thankful.”last_img read more
