US farmers store record soybean crop as China dispute weighs

first_imgDES MOINES, Iowa — American farmers still working to get out their remaining soybeans after a weather-plagued harvest season are struggling to figure out what to do with a record crop now their traditionally dominant export market is largely closed.Usually by this point in the year, 100-car trains filled with North Dakota soybeans would be moving to ports on the West Coast destined for China. This year is different because that leading soybean customer has all but stopped buying American soybeans in response to President Donald Trump’s trade tariffs.Some farmers are storing unsold beans, hoping prices will improve and markets open. But with farmers already in debt due to high costs but falling net income, economists are warning they could be forced out of business by the export crisis.David Pitt, The Associated Presslast_img read more

UNESCO chief deplores killing of Afghan journalist

Jawed Ahmad, also known as Jojo Yazemi, worked for the Canadian media, including CTV News. He was gunned down on 10 March by two men as he was getting out of his car in Kandahar’s city centre.“The life of a dedicated reporter has been cut short, depriving the whole of Afghan society of a brave promoter of democratic debate and a defender of the basic human right of freedom of expression,” said Koïchiro Matsuura, Director-General of the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).According to the non-governmental organization Reporters Without Borders, several Afghan journalists said that they suspect the murder may have been ordered by the Taliban. Mr. Ahmad was detained by the United States army in November 2007 for allegedly having contacts with the Taliban, and was released 11 months later.Reporters Without Borders said that the journalist had defended his “right” to be in contact with the Taliban, calling it a necessity for his work as a reporter in southern Afghanistan. 25 March 2009The head of the United Nations agency tasked with defending press freedom today condemned the killing of a reporter from Afghanistan earlier this month in the south of the war-torn nation, calling his death a blow to the freedom of expression. read more

Somalia UN envoy welcomes release of abducted aid workers

12 August 2009The top United Nations envoy for Somalia today welcomed the release of four aid workers and two pilots who were abducted nine months ago and called for the freeing of remaining hostages. “It is with great satisfaction that I received the news concerning the release of the six hostages who had been held for so long, and taken into captivity while working in Somalia,” said Ahmedou Ould-Abdallah. The four aid workers, who were serving with the French non-governmental organization (NGO) Action Against Hunger, and two pilots were abducted last November from an airstrip in the central Somali town of Dusamareb.“I salute their courage in the face of such physically and emotionally difficult circumstances and I am pleased that an end has come to the concerns and worries endured by their loved ones,” stated Mr. Ould-Abdallah, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Somalia.“We should not, however, forget the number of Somalis and foreign nationals that are still being held hostage in unacceptable conditions, an action that should be vehemently condemned by the Somalis and the international community,” he added. Last month UN humanitarian chief John Holmes warned that aid workers in Somalia – and many other countries – are coming under increasingly violent attack.The UN has repeatedly called on all parties in Somalia to ensure the safety of humanitarian aid workers, who are tending to the needs of some 3 million people, or 40 per cent of the population, made vulnerable by the combined effects of conflict, drought, high food prices and the collapse of the local currency. Despite the signing of peace agreements, the formation of a new government and election of a new president, Somalia continues to experience strife and instability. Clashes in the capital, Mogadishu, since early May between Government forces and the Al-Shabaab and Hisb-ul-Islam militant groups have forced over 200,000 people from their homes, many of them for the second time over the course of the past year.In a related development, Mr. Ould-Abdallah welcomed today’s convening of the Joint Security Committee held in Mogadishu as part of continuing efforts towards reforming and improving security in Somalia. The committee comprises representatives of the UN Political Office for Somalia (UNPOS), the African Union Mission in Somalia (AMISOM), the Transitional Federal Government (TFG) and the international community, and was established by the 2008 UN-facilitated Djibouti Agreement. read more

How Neymars Injury Affects Brazils Chances at the World Cup

Brazil has been FiveThirtyEight’s frontrunner to win the World Cup since the beginning of the tournament. But A Seleção will have to do it without its star, Neymar, who is out of the tournament after fracturing a vertebra in Brazil’s quarterfinal win against Colombia. In the semifinal against Germany on Tuesday, Brazil will also be without defender Thiago Silva, who was suspended after accumulating two yellow cards (Silva will return if Brazil reaches the final).Our forecast, which gives Brazil a 54 percent chance of treating its home fans to a title, doesn’t account for these player absences. This article will attempt to measure their impact and recalculate the numbers.We have some reasonably good news for Brazil. Even without Neymar and Silva, the team remains the leading contender to win the World Cup in our estimation. You may or may not agree with the math, but the intuition behind it is this: Soccer is a team sport, and Brazil is a very deep team. Whether Brazil is better than Germany without Neymar and Silva is up for debate. However, Brazil will play at home, where the national team hasn’t lost a competitive match since 1975.Our rating systemOur World Cup forecasts are based on ESPN’s Soccer Power Index (SPI). SPI is essentially two ratings systems rolled into one. It measures a national team’s performance, placing more weight on its most competitive matches, and evaluates the talent on its roster based on players’ performance in national and club matches.The player ratings work by means of a plus-minus system that assigns or subtracts points from players based on goals scored and allowed at the time they’re on the pitch. They include data from national team matches, along with the top-flight club leagues in Spain, England, Italy, Germany and France, and matches from the Champions League.In principle, the system operates something like this. The average English Premier League team scores and allows about 1.4 goals per game. But let’s say Arsenal wins a game 3-1 instead against an average EPL opponent. Its three goals scored are 1.6 goals above the league average, so we have 1.6 goals worth of extra credit to apportion out to the players who were on the pitch at the time. Arsenal also allowed 0.4 goals less than average, so there’s 0.4 goals worth of defensive credit to split up, too.In theory, this allows us to estimate the impact of any one player. But the plus-minus works better for some players than others. The statistics it accounts for are goals scored, bookings and the starting lineups and substitutions of a match, along with the players’ positions. This works fine for strikers like Neymar, whose main objective is to score goals and set them up, but it isn’t as helpful for defenders like Silva.1Soccer statistics are rapidly improving — and we hope to be able to account for things like time of possession, passes completed and tackles in future versions of the system. SPI will give about the right overall amount of credit to the back line and midfielders on a team — for instance, to Silva’s Paris Saint-Germain after an impressive victory. But if Silva is better than the other defenders, it will give him too little credit and his teammates too much.So we’ll use the SPI method to account for Neymar’s absence, and then an alternative method that might more accurately measure the loss of Silva.The impact of Neymar’s absenceFor forwards and strikers, the SPI plus-minus ratings line up reasonably well with subjective perceptions. The following chart compares SPI plus-minus ratings for forwards, measured as the number of additional goals they help score and prevent per 90 minutes of play, as compared to The Guardian’s consensus list of the top 100 footballers in the world.The correlation isn’t perfect, but it’s reasonably good. The amazing Lionel Messi, along with Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo, rate as the best forwards in the world by far in both systems.Based on data from his FC Barcelona games over the past two years, along with his recent play for Argentina, for instance, we estimate that Messi contributes about 0.65 goals per game relative to an average international footballer. (Almost all of that impact comes from Messi helping his team get more goals — only a little bit is defense or goal prevention.)How big is that impact? The SPI match predictor estimates that if you put Messi on an average team, it would go from winning 50 percent of its games (assuming a knockout-style format with no draws) to around 65 percent instead. That’s impressive — not far from the effect you might see by replacing an average NBA player with LeBron James. But James plays a 5-on-5 game, while Messi and Ronaldo play one with 11 players to a side.Neymar isn’t quite at Messi’s or Ronaldo’s level — nor is anyone else. Instead, SPI estimates his impact at about 0.4 goals per 90 minutes. Almost all of this (0.37 goals) comes from increasing his team’s scoring, while just a fraction (0.03 goals) comes from improving its goal prevention.These player ratings can be carried forward to the team level. For instance, if you removed Neymar from the pitch and replaced him with an average international footballer, Brazil’s scoring would drop by 0.37 goals per 90 minutes, we estimate. Brazil would also allow an additional 0.03 goals per 90 minutes of play.But the players replacing Neymar are going to be well above average. An average international soccer player, according to SPI, is something like a starter on Israel or Libya or Uzbekistan. A player on Brazil’s second or third string would be a star on one of those sides.It’s not clear exactly who will replace Neymar. In fact, it may wind up being a combination of players, given that his injury will have knockoff effects on Brazil’s depth. But Neymar’s playing time will likely be distributed principally among three players: the forwards Bernard and Jo, and the winger Willian.Of the three, we have the best data on Willian, since he plays his club football for Chelsea in the EPL — one of the leagues we track. SPI estimates he’s worth about 0.2 goals per 90 minutes relative to an average footballer. If Neymar is worth about 0.4 goals per 90 minutes, Willian is 0.2 goals per 90 minutes worse. (Some numbers in the tables below may look slightly off due to rounding.)For Bernard, who plays for Shakhtar Donetsk in Ukraine, we have data only from his performance with Brazil, plus a smattering of Champions League matches. And for Jo, who plays for Atlético in Brazil, we have the national team data only. But they rate similarly to Willian, at about +0.2 goals per 90 minutes.Certainly these players lack Neymar’s explosiveness and creativity. But this isn’t a total disaster for Brazil. Ratings in the range of +0.2 goals per 90 minutes imply that Willian, Bernard and Jo would belong somewhere in the top 200 or 250 footballers in the world, and would start for most of the teams that made the World Cup.The impact of Silva’s absenceBrazil will also be without Thiago Silva for the Germany match, and coach Luiz Felipe Scolari has a number of options to replace him. Brazil played Dani Alves in its first four World Cup matches, then replaced him with Maicon for its game against Colombia. Scolari could choose to play them both instead, though Brazil would need to rotate its formation, as they both typically play right back rather than center. Scolari could also go with Dante, who plays center defense for Bayern Munich and who has the advantage of being familiar with some of Germany’s stars. Henrique, who plays as a center back or defensive midfielder, would be another option.The SPI plus-minus ratings suggest that there’s hardly any difference between Silva and some of these options — and what impact it does find comes on offense, such as on set pieces.But this conclusion may be misguided. As I mentioned, the SPI ratings are a crude tool for evaluating defensive players. They do get us somewhere: SPI knows that Silva plays for Brazil and Paris Saint-Germain, two excellent teams, and gives him credit for being in those lineups. But it will have trouble distinguishing truly world-class defensive players from merely very good ones.There’s a more aggressive way to approach the problem, however, which is to approximate Silva’s defensive value by using his position on The Guardian’s top 100 ranking. Silva was No. 17 on that list.As I mentioned, the SPI plus-minus should be pretty solid for forwards and strikers. So we can calibrate the value of Silva by estimating how much a striker rated as the No. 17 player in the world would be worth. This value turns out to be about 0.37 goals per 90 minutes based on the regression line I drew in the chart above. By comparison, the raw SPI numbers put Silva’s impact at 0.19 goals per 90 minutes, considering both offensive and defensive contributions.So let’s assume that The Guardian’s panelists have it right and that Silva is in fact worth 0.37 goals per match. We’ll further assume that SPI is missing Silva’s defense but that it gauges his offensive contributions about right. That implies having Silva on the pitch reduces an opponent’s goal-scoring by about 0.28 goals per 90 minutes relative to an average player, while he adds 0.09 goals per match with his offense.If we make this fix for Silva, however, we should do so for Dante and Dani Alves, who also rank in The Guardian’s top 100. (We won’t make any adjustment for Henrique and Maicon, who are outside the top 100.)Averaging the figures for Silva’s potential replacements yields a combination of players that rate at +0.22 goals per 90 minutes. That’s about 0.15 goals per match worse than Silva. More precisely, we estimate Brazil’s goal-scoring to decline by 0.03 goals per 90 minutes without Silva, and for it to allow an additional 0.11 goals in that time.The change to Brazil’s oddsThe next step is to see what impact this has on Brazil’s overall chances of victory. Brazil, at full strength, has an SPI offensive rating of 3.12 (placing it No. 1 in the world) and an SPI defensive rating of 0.50 (putting it at No. 3 — at the team level, lower defensive ratings are better).Without Neymar and Silva, Brazil’s offensive rating declines to 2.90 while its defensive rating worsens to 0.61. Both ratings are almost identical to Germany’s, which checks in with a 2.92 offensive rating and a 0.63 defensive rating.But Brazil still has the home-country advantage. If we run the new numbers through the SPI match predictor, we come up with a 65 percent chance of Brazil prevailing against Germany. This is as opposed to a 73 percent chance of doing so with Silva and Neymar in the lineup.Let me pause here to ruminate on the nature of home-country advantage in soccer. Brazil has developed a reputation for “winning ugly” so far in this World Cup. The team was helped by a dubious penalty in its opening match against Croatia. It needed a penalty shootout to get by Chile. And Brazil’s match against Colombia was marred by rough play, including the foul that knocked Neymar out.But winning ugly is part of what home-field advantage is all about. Home teams benefit significantly from officiating decisions — it’s much harder for most referees to hand out a red card or to award a penalty against the home team’s hero. Home teams may also have some advantage in shootouts. Since 2005 — and counting Brazil’s win against Chile — home teams are 7-0 in penalty shootouts in major international competitions. That’s not to say that Brazil has been in its best form (in fact, its SPI rating has declined slightly over the course of the World Cup). But in Brazil, being in pretty good form may be good enough.Should Brazil make it to the final — with Silva returning but still without Neymar — we estimate that it would have a 67 percent chance of beating Argentina (down from 72 percent with Neymar in the lineup). Almost all of that comes from home-field advantage — the teams would be almost level at a neutral site. Brazil would have a 73 percent chance against the Netherlands without Neymar, we estimate, down from 77 percent with him.We can recalculate Brazil’s overall odds of winning the World Cup as well: They’re 45 percent, as opposed to 54 percent with the team at full strength. The other teams benefit from Brazil’s limitations: Argentina’s odds of winning the World Cup rise to 23 percent from 20 percent; Germany’s to 18 percent from 14 percent. The Netherlands gets the least help and goes to 14 percent from 12.5 percent.Betting markets see things a bit differently. The odds available as of early Sunday afternoon have Germany, Brazil and Argentina as co-favorites, each with about a 27 percent chance of winning the World Cup, and the Netherlands just slightly behind at 20 percent.It could be that the markets see a greater impact from the losses of Neymar and Silva than the ones we’ve estimated here. But I suspect that’s only part of the issue — from the start of the tournament, betting markets have consistently been lower on Brazil than SPI and another computer rating system, Elo, have.So far, SPI and Elo have performed well compared to the betting markets. In general, markets are fairly tough to beat, so this could just reflect good luck. International football is particularly hard to rate, whether using subjective or objective methods. The main problems are that the teams don’t play very many competitive matches against one another, and that the composition of the rosters is always changing. SPI tries to address some of those problems, but it isn’t perfect.But there could also be a pro-European bias in the markets. Even though Europe has performed rather poorly in this World Cup, it has the highest-profile club leagues, and it has a higher concentration of wealthy people who can afford to bet on soccer. FIFA’s ranking of international teams, with methodological flaws that may result in overrating European teams, also has some currency in shaping perceptions about international soccer. That may help to explain why betting markets give the European teams a 47 percent chance of winning the World Cup when SPI gives them a 32 percent chance (even after accounting for Brazil’s player absences). It may also help to explain why Brazil’s ugly wins against Colombia and Chile are given less credit than if they had come against, say, Portugal and France.In a sense, the World Cup has come full circle. At the start of the tournament, SPI’s major contentions were that South America was underrated as compared with Europe — and that Brazil’s home-field advantage shouldn’t be overlooked. Brazil still has those things working in its favor, even without Neymar. read more

Most parties but AL want troops in polls

first_imgCheif election commissioner KM Nurul Huda and election commissioner Kabita Khanam during a dialogue. Prothom Alo File Photo Most of the political parties except the ruling Bangladesh Awami League (AL) have sought army deployment to maintain law and order during the general elections.As much as 25 of a total of 40 registered political parties during their scheduled talks with the election commission held from 24 August to 18 October sought the deployment of army personnel during the polls.And some 19 political parties, except the AL, also demanded dissolution of parliament before the general elections to make the ballot free from the influence of the ruling quarters.Many political parties have favoured formation of an election-time government – a longstanding demand of principal opposition Bangladesh Nationalist Party (BNP) and its allies.However, eight of the 40 registered parties – mainly ruling AL and its allies – wanted elections to be held under AL president Sheikh Hasina-led government.The political parties submitted around 450 proposals to the election commission for holding the next general elections in free and fair manner.Talking to Prothom Alo, former and serving election commissioners said the election commission alone would not be able to implement all the proposals tabled by the political parties and political will of the ruling AL is a prerequisite for implementing some of the proposals.The country’s constitution and some laws will have to be amended to implement those and it is impossible if the ruling AL does not want so.Election commissioner Shahadat Hossain Chowdhury said the commission will compile and publish all the proposals and then send them to all the political parties.He said the commission will sit and discuss the proposals and then will take a decision as to what could be done with the proposals.A study of the proposals shows that 10 political parties including opposition BNP are in favour of deploying army with magistracy power.The ruling AL wants only the regular law enforcement agencies to maintain law and order.About troops deployment, the AL in its proposals said Sections 129-131 of the Code of Criminal Procedure aka CrPC and the section titled ‘In Aid To Civil Power’ of the rules on army have described well when the military troops can be deployed and in which context.Section 129 reads: “If any such assembly cannot be otherwise dispersed, and if it is necessary for the public security that it should be dispersed, the 152 [Executive Magistrate] of the highest rank who is present 153 [or the Police Commissioner in 154 [a Metropolitan Area] may cause it to be dispersed by military force.”Sections 130 and 131 describe the duty and power of commissioned military officers who are in the command of troops required by magistrate to disperse assembly.     The proposals of country’s two major rival political parties – AL and BNP – are contradictory, particularly over the issues of army deployment, delimitation of constituencies, and use of electronic voting machine (EVM).Although the AL gave no specific formula about the poll-time government and dissolution of parliament, its position regarding the issues is diametrically opposite the one of its rival BNP.When his attention was drawn, AL presidium member and health minister Mohammed Nasim said the next elections would be held following the provisions of existing constitution like that of 5 January 2014 elections.If the elections are held under the current constitution, current prime minister and AL president Sheikh Hasina will be at the helm of all powers during the elections.The BNP and its allies oppose the system and boycotted the controversial 5 January 2014 elections.BNP standing committee member Amir Khosru Mahmud Chowdhury said a party-neutral poll-time government, dissolution of parliament before the polls and army deployment are the requisites for holding a neutral general elections.As per the existing Representation of the People Order (RPO), the primary electoral law, there is no legal compulsion for deploying troops during the polls.The election commission, however, can deploy troops as striking force without magistracy power as the AL-led ninth parliament amended the RPO in 2009 to drop armed forces from the list of law enforces as defined by the RPO.If the armed forces are required to be deployed with magistracy power, the RPO must be amended by incumbent parliament which is overwhelmingly controlled by AL.BNP, Kalyan Party, Muslim League, Khelafat Majlish, Jatiya Party (Matin), Bangladesh NAP, Bangladesh Khelafat Majlish, Bangladesh Jatiya Party (BJP), Bangladesh Muslim League and Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (JSD) submitted proposal for army deployment with magistracy power.Besides, AL’s ally Ershad-led Jatiya Party (JaPa), Islami Front, Islami Andolan Bangladesh, Gana Front, Gana Forum, Liberal Democratic Party (LDP), and Krishak Sramik Janata League demanded army deployment, but did not clear if they want it with magistracy power.AL’s ally Workers Party proposed that there is no need of giving the armed forces the magistracy power.Poll-time GovernmentThe BNP has been demanding restoration of neutral caretaker government system for overseeing the general elections since it was scrapped by the AL-led parliament in 2011 and also boycotted the 2014 general elections.Now the party is demanding a neutral supportive election-time government to oversee the next polls.During the EC dialogue, alongside the BNP, several other political parties like Revolutionary Workers’ Party, Jatiya Ganatantrik Party, Bangladesh NAP, Kalyan Party, and Krishak Sramik Janata League demanded the next general elections be held under a party-neutral government.Jamiyat-e-Ulema Islam and Bangladesh Khelafat Andolan demanded restoration of caretaker government system.Talking to Prothom Alo, election commission acting secretary Helal Uddin Ahmed said the parties which have demanded an election-time government also know the jurisdiction of the commission.“They wanted us to take initiative to install a neutral polls-time government. The commission will look into matter and see what it can do in this regard.”Dissolution of ParliamentAs per the current constitutional provision, the general elections shall be held in 90 days before the expiry of the incumbent parliament, suggesting that the MPs will remain in their posts along with the benefits and facilities they get as MPs during the elections.A total of 19 political parties, including BNP, and AL’s ally Ershad-led Jatiya Party, demanded dissolution of parliament before the next general elections, arguing that the MPs will get advantage during the polls if they remain in the posts.Constituency Delimitation, No-Vote and EVMRuling AL, its allies Jatiya Samajtantrik Dal (Jasad) and Samyabadi Dal, Bikalpadhara Bangladesh, LDP, and some other parties demanded the next polls with the existing demarcation of the constituencies.But the AL’s primary rival BNP want the EC to re-demarcate the constituency to restore the boundary existed before 2006.Revolutionary Workers Party, Bangladesh NAP, PDP, Islami Front Bangladesh, JSD, Bikalpadhara, Communist Party of Bangladesh (CPB), Samyabadhi Dal and few other parties wanted introduction of No-vote.There is a debate in the political arena over using electronic voting machine or digital voting machine.BNP and like-minded parties are against using EVM. They argue that it would be easier for the ruling quarter to manipulate the election result if the device is introduced.But ruling AL and its allies like Jasad and Workers Party said the voting machine can be used to digitise the system, saying it would expedite the balloting.Apart from these, the EC get proposals like introduction of online system for submitting nomination papers, enlisting non-resident Bangladeshis as voters, reshuffling administration before polls, appointing returning officers from EC officials (not from admin cadres), installation of CCTV cameras, cancellation of system of submitting signatures of 1 per cent voters for independent candidate, and reduction of the amount of security deposits.*The article, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, is rewritten in English Abu Taib Ahmedlast_img read more

Ayushmann wants to playback for SRK

first_imgHe may have crooned several hit songs for himself, but actor-singer Ayushmann Khurrana says if given a chance he would love to do playback singing for superstar Shah Rukh Khan.Ayushmann, 31, who has sung many popular tracks like Paani Da Rang and Saadi Galli Aaja, feels his voice will match with that of the Chennai Express actor, as he imitates him well.“I don’t know, I would probably love to do playback for Shah Rukh. The voice will match because I mimic him pretty well, so I can sing like him. It will be quite credible,” said Ayushmann. Also Read – A fresh blend of fameThe Dum Laga Ke Haisha actor is currently riding high on the success of his latest song Yahin Hoon Main and with many Bollywood actors like Hrithik Roshan, Sonam Kapoor and Emraan Hashmi featuring in singles, Ayushmann believes the trend will boost up independent music.“More than anything else, it gives a boost to singers, to music. Because, of course in other singles there are actors who are acting, lip syncing, but with me, I am singing…,” he said. The Vicky Donor star shot to fame with the hit number Pani Da Rang and since then has lent his voice to songs like Mitti Di Khushboo and O Herriye. The actor feels he is lucky to get good songs, but credits his team of lyricist and co-composer Rochak Kohli for the success of all his tracks. “Of course I am lucky that way. More than that I am lucky to get the brilliant team. There is no wall, no professional barrier… Lyricists are my juniors from college, Rochak and I did theater together and have been composing since childhood,” he said.last_img read more

The orbiting outpost will serve as a platform for astronauts who will come in and come out of the lunar surface during missions as well as for scientific observations and experiments in space.The United States is set to vacate its side of the ISS by 2024.The announcement is only asking for proposals right now, and not for providers to submit formal bids. A formal solicitation for a firm-fixed-price contract is expected to be issued later this summer. The agency said that the contract award for all Gateway services over the course of 15 years will be valued at $7 billion.The industry comments are due on July 10. NASA, however, will host a Q&A in Florida on June 26.”We’re using the Moon as a proving ground for Mars to develop the technologies and systems we need for exploration farther into the solar system, so we look forward to seeing how industry responds to our upcoming solicitation, and potentially awarding multiple contracts for this lunar service,” added Marshall Smith, director of the human lunar exploration programs at NASA.

Fauber, Ed.D., R.T.(R)(M), a professor emeritus of radiation sciences at Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, the study shows a 36.4 percent increase in exposure to the testes was calculated when no contact shield was used during pelvic imaging. As a result, Fauber concludes the routine practice of shielding adult male gonads during radiographic imaging of the pelvis should be a best practice for all radiographers.Fauber first completed a literature review to identify historical trends in shielding radiosensitive organs. The literature review showed a wide disparity of opinions on the use of gonadal shielding. “The effectiveness of gonadal shielding has been a debated topic in clinical practice for many years and it continues today with just as much zeal,” Fauber said. “I was surprised to find the literature also debated the efficacy of gonadal shielding. As a result, I was compelled to further explore the topic.”To determine whether shielding reduces radiation exposure to the gonads, Fauber used a male anthropomorphic phantom equipped with holes for placement of thermoluminescent dosimeters to correspond to the testes. A flat contact shield was used to shield the phantom’s testes. Ten exposures were made of the pelvis with and without shielding. The exposed TLDs were then analyzed by the University of Wisconsin Calibration Laboratory, which reported the radiation exposure readings for the TLDs with and without shielding.The study notes that the findings are at odds with previous research that concluded radiation exposure to the testes is not significantly reduced by the use of flat contact shielding. However, Fauber’s findings lend support to a 2010 study that showed that radiation exposure to the testes can be reduced significantly when using a flat contact shield.“Because there are uncertainties regarding the biologic risks of low-dose radiation exposure, gonadal shields should be consistently utilized and accurately placed,” Fauber said. “In addition it’s good radiation hygiene, especially as our patients become more knowledgeable about potential risks of radiation exposure.”Fauber said that very little research exists regarding the attitudes of radiologic technologists toward the importance of gonadal shielding and self-reported practices. A large study in the United States on self-reported knowledge about the efficacy of gonadal shielding and its routine practice would provide important information on shielding as a radiation safety practice. Investigating the effectiveness of staff training on the practice of correctly shielding the gonads also would provide valuable information to encourage radiographers to use gonadal shielding routinely.The study “Gonadal Shielding in Radiography: A Best Practice?” was published in the American Society of Radiologic Technologist journal, Radiologic Technology, November/December 2016, Volume 88, Number 2.  FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Radiation Dose Management | July 11, 2019 Fluke Biomedical Introduces RaySafe 452 Survey Meter Radiation measurement often requires different devices for varying applications, adding to the cost and complexity of… read more Technology | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 Shimadzu Medical Systems Receives FDA 510(k) for FluoroSpeed X1 RF System Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu Corp., announced they have received U.S. Food and Drug… read more Feature | Digital Radiography (DR) | July 19, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr DR Advances Promote Imaging of Whole Spine Recent advances in… read more Feature | Radiation Dose Management | July 15, 2019 | Niki Fitousi, Ph.D., and An Dedulle Can CT Image Truncation Cause False Dose Alerts?
