Acthar Gel or 1mL of a matching placebo subcutaneously 2 times/week. Subjects will be assigned to treatment in a 1:1 ratio with up to 50 subjects per arm for a total of up to 100 subjects. Subjects who complete the 24 week randomized, double blind, placebo controlled treatment period will be eligible to continue in an optional 24 week open label extension.Response will be evaluated by Sarcoidosis Treatment Score (STS) with a time frame of baseline to 24 weeks. STS is an exploratory newly developed composite score that combines the results of pulmonary function tests (forced vital capacity; diffusing capacity of the lungs for carbon monoxide), high resolution computed tomography, quality of life (King Sarcoidosis Questionnaire; Fatigue Assessment Scale) and corticosteroid tapering. In some cases the symptoms may come and go throughout a lifetime. This is referred to as symptomatic sarcoidosis. In people with sarcoidosis the immune system overreacts, forming clumps of cells called granulomas that result in inflammation to the body tissues. The disease can impact any organ, but it most often impacts the lungs, lymph nodes, eyes, and skin. Over 90 percent of people with sarcoidosis will suffer lung problems. Concomitant involvement of organs outside of the lungs is common, occurring in as many as half of all sarcoidosis cases.

adidas pure boost First Nation in ancestral land dispute

OTTAWA A Supreme Court of Canada decision has moved a British Columbia First Nation a big step closer to receiving financial compensation for the loss of its traditional lands in the 19th century.

In a split decision released Friday, the high court restored a tribunal ruling in favour of the Williams Lake Indian Band, which had argued the pre Confederation colony of British Columbia failed to protect its territory from encroaching settlers.

A majority of the Supreme Court justices said the federal specific claims tribunal “reasonably found” that both pre Confederation British Columbia and Canada had failed to live up to their obligations to the band.

“A just resolution of these types of claims is essential to the process of reconciliation,” Chief Justice Richard Wagner wrote on behalf of the majority.

Williams Lake Indian Band Chief Ann Louie said the members were “elated” with the high court’s ruling.

“For over 150 years our chiefs and elders have been saying that we were unlawfully pushed off our village lands,” Louie said in a statement. “This decision from our country’s highest court clearly says our dispossession from these lands was wrong.”

The band is one of 17 communities of the Shuswap Nation, which traditionally lived around Williams Lake, harvesting game, fish and berries. municipality of Williams Lake, 540 kilometres north of Vancouver,
adidas suede trainers First Nation in ancestral land dispute
with a population of about 10,500.

Seven years ago, the band made a claim concerning just over 800 hectares, including the present city’s downtown.

In 2014, the specific claims tribunal which can award financial compensation upheld the band’s arguments concerning the original lands, finding that both the colony and Canada had breached their duties.

The Federal Court of Appeal overturned the tribunal’s decision two years ago, concluding that Canada’s post Confederation actions were sufficient.

The Supreme Court decision affirming the tribunal ruling clears the way for establishing compensation.

The Williams Lake band is looking forward to sitting down with federal representatives as soon as possible to figure out how to make amends, Louie said.

The band acknowledges the support from First Nations organizations across Canada as well as the hard work of its legal team, she added.

“We are also really appreciative of the support we’ve received from the City of Williams Lake in our efforts to get a resolution of this claim,

adidas climacool fires could smoulder until 2018

A municipal leader in British Columbia central Interior says he wouldn be surprised if wildfires that have chewed through more than 10,600 square kilometres of woodland aren fully out until 2018.

Chairman Al Richmond of the Cariboo Regional District said hot spots from many of the largest fires likely won be doused until the spring, mirroring a Fort McMurray wildfire that Alberta officials said was finally declared extinguished on Aug. 2.

goes down deep into the roots sometimes and then pops up again in the summer, he said. not unusual, so I think the forest service felt we will be out dealing with these fires until well into October. And we will probably be back with many hot spots again come spring. swaths of land that are now just barren stretches of ash covered ground and charred timber also worry the regional district as it prepares for rain in the fall.

we have some rains here, which we will be thankful to have to douse the fires, they could bring a mixed blessing and cause some land slippage too, so it not a pretty picture, Richmond said. Updated firefighting costs will be included in September financial update.

Cabinet ministers from the federal and British Columbia governments have scheduled a meeting for Tuesday in Vancouver to discuss the response and efforts to rebuild areas damaged by the wildfires. representatives will be Solicitor General Mike Farnworth, Forests Minister Doug Donaldson and Agriculture Minister Lana Popham. First Nations leaders and representatives from the Red Cross are also scheduled to attend the meeting.

On Friday, the province also extended a state of emergency for the third time through to the end of day on Sept. 15. on Friday morning, with 16 evacuation orders affecting about 3,

600 people, plus 39 evacuation alerts covering another 13,670 residents.

Among those fires was an 1,800 square kilometre blaze straddling the Cariboo and Thompson Nicola regional districts.

The BC Wildfire Service said the blaze, sparked at the beginning of July near Ashcroft, was 50% contained but recent scorching heat and gusty winds caused the fire to grow. All available resources, including structural protection crews, were sent to the area.

Effective at noon on Saturday, the province has decided to close all Crown land in the Rocky Mountain natural resource district to public access because of the fire risk. There are exceptions, including for people travelling to or from a residence that is not under an evacuation order.

Wildfire service spokesman Kevin Skrepnek said a full backcountry closure was not planned over the Labour Day weekend, but the province strongly recommended that people stay out of woods in the critically dry Kamloops, Cariboo and southeast fire centres.

Campfires remain banned in those areas. The BC Conservation Service said its officers issued 37 tickets over the last week to people who violated the order.

About 30 40% of the wildfire service crews are ending their contracts for the season entering September,

but Skrepnek said support from other provinces and local contractors will ensure there are enough people to continue battling fires that are expected to remain active for at least another month.

Thursday’s searing heat and high fire danger had area departments playing a game of whack amole in effort to tamp down a burgeoning firestorm sweeping through Southwest Oklahoma.”They’re popping up like ugly heads,” said Cotton County Sheriff Paul Jeffrey. “We’re in such a dadgum drought down here you could look at something and start one up.”The first fire began shortly before noon and it is believed that it was caused by a bird flying into power lines though the triple digit temperatures could have just as feasibly caused the bird to combustWalters firefighters made a mutual aid request over emergency radios answered by the Bethel and Hulen volunteers shortly after noon when the large wildfire broke out close to Oklahoma 65 and Comanche Road, about five miles east and three miles north of town. With south/southwest winds of 10 mph gusting up to 20 mph, the parched groundcover absorbed flame as surely as rain if it were to fall. With 13 percent humidity, firefighters were offered no favors by the summer’s torture. but another fire immediately erupted in its place near Temple. The contingent of firefighters working in the northern part of the county raced south to join the Temple firefighters as they worked to slow the growing fire east of Oklahoma 70 off of Lone Star Road. The increasing by the second inferno caused for chaotic orders minutes later as calls for help as it burned near Temple, close to the Cotton Jefferson County line, just east off of Lone Star Road into Oklahoma 5 on the fire’s west side. Its occupants who were in the process of moving in were evacuated until the threat was lessened, he said. However, the fire continued to grow to around a three mile stretch, he said.”We’ve got a helluva fire going right now it’ll likely be in Jefferson County before they stop it,” Jeffrey said. “All the fields are down to stubble and that really leaves nothing to stop it.”A Temple brush truck broke down during the battle and was later towed back to the fire station. In light of the lost truck,

reinforcements attempted to draw in the ranks and form a barrier but communication problems between the departments from at least three counties were causing confusion, according to radio traffic. The roadway remained closed as a task force out of Stephens County set up its command post nearby.”It’s still going, burning through the countryside to the north/northeast,” Jeffrey said. “We get ahead of it and the wind keeps changing and it gets gone on either side.”The sheriff said that the fight would most likely last through the night. Treacherous terrain and a mesquitecovered countryside made passability almost impossible, he said.”It’s going to be a while longer,” Jeffrey said. to assist with a flareup of the fire that burned one square mile near Welch Road and 135th Street outside of Elgin. While that scene was maintained, Comanche County Emergency Management Director Clint Wagstaff was coordinating a ready response in case a fire on Fort Sill’s West Range erupted past its boundaries. as it neared the intersection of Oklahoma 49 and 58. Medicine Park Fire Chief David McCoy relayed via radio another ominous warning: “It’s eating a lot of grass very fast.”Wagstaff reported the urgency of Fort Sill’s fire response to the burn: “It could go a long way if they don’t stop it at the head.”The fire’s path was reported to be trailing that of the 2011 fire that burned thousands of acres and more than 13 structures through Medicine Park and north around Lake Lawtonka. By night’s approach, it appeared that particular bullet had been dodged.The Fort Sill fire was contained to the military base and northern county fire departments were kept scrambling through the evening. as they battled an outdoor fire that threatened a home at 10547 Madische Road. Additional trucks were called off within a few minutes after arriving crews reported the fire contained and, a short while later, out.Nightfall offered little relief. First responders reported it wasn’t a lost structure but a boat stored on the property and called off extra support for the grass firefight after it was discovered to be less intense than initially believed. Cars on the property were burned during Tuesday’s fire in that area.Today joins Thursday as a red flag fire weather watch kind of day, With a forecast of more of the same with 112 degrees the forecast high temperature couple with 16 mph winds and 26 percent humidity and the sun baked Earth underneath,

officials say that all the ingredients are gathered to create an extreme fire danger. Most of Southwest Oklahoma remains under a burn ban. Fines for illegal burning can range as high as $500 and property owners may file a civil case for damages if property is lost from a negligent fire.

Scranton’s police and fire unions want the state Commonwealth Court to reconsider its rejection in 2010 of an increase in maximum pension benefits, from 50 percent of salary to 70 percent, that the unions had won in prior arbitration cases.

At the time of that ruling, such an increase in pension benefits would have approximately doubled the city’s annual mandatory minimum contributions to the police and fire pension systems. Jermyn Lodge 2 stems from the state Supreme Court’s landmark arbitration ruling in favor of the unions in October 2011. One facet involved a possible restoration of the increase in pension benefits that Commonwealth Court had struck down in October 2010.

In allowing the union to appeal the pension matter, the Supreme Court in February 2012 sent it back to Commonwealth Court to be reconsidered.

The unions on June 5 filed a motion in Commonwealth Court to have it set a schedule for updated legal briefs to be submitted from both sides and a date for arguments to be heard.

The case is a lingering remnant of the epic legal war between the city and unions pitting conflicting state laws, Act 47, the Distressed Municipalities Act of 1987, against Act 111, Pennsylvania’s arbitration law of 1968. The unions won that war when the Supreme Court ruled in October 2011 that the city’s Act 47 recovery plan limitations did not trump Act 111 arbitration awards outside of the recovery plan.

The unresolved pension facet of the case centers on a third statute, Act 205, the 1951 Municipal Pension Act.

Unions’ attorney Thomas Jennings said, “The issue is whether or not it (the arbitration awards’ pension increases) passes muster with Act 205.”

Act 205 holds that in a class 2A city, of which Scranton is the only one in the state, “the total allowance from the (pension) systems shall not exceed 50 percent of the salary currently paid to a patrolman or fireman of the highest pay grade,” according to the Commonwealth Court ruling.

The two arbitration awards underlying the case, including one from 2008 for the fire union and one from 2009 for the police union, involved wage increases, health benefits and other items.

It also allowed for pensions as follows:

For 20 years of service, a pension of 60 percent of average year salary;

The calculation of average year salary included longevity, overtime and other pay incentives.

The city appealed these awards. On Oct. 29, 2010, Commonwealth Court affirmed large wage increases and caps on employee health insurance contributions, but struck down pension benefit provisions on the following grounds: they were illegal; there had been no cost estimate of their impact as required by Act 205; and actuarial data related to the pension awards had not been provided by the chief administrative officer of the pension plan.

The key questions in the unresolved pension case are whether the Commonwealth Court improperly vacated the pension provisions of the arbitration awards and whether the pension benefits conferred by the awards are lawful and should be confirmed, the unions’ motion states.

Regarding a pension above 50 percent, Mr. Judge noted that the city in the early 1990s provided a 60 percent pension option as a retirement incentive, and the 10 percent difference was funded from the city budget and not the pension systems. The annual budget continues to include a 10 percent pension retirement line item, he said.

“We don’t think it was a violation of Act 205,” Mr. Judge said of the arbitration award’s pension provision. He added that the unresolved pension issue has affected the timing of some retirements. “We’ve had guys wait to see what will happen and it’s a determination on when they will retire. I’m glad to see it’s finally getting taking care of.”.

yohji yamamoto adidas Fire rips through Westwood home

adidas gazelle og grey Fire rips through Westwood home

Black cinders muddled with white flurries, flailing through the ice cold morning air. Steam rose from the gutted 1045 High St. home’s windows as worn out Keith Marsh schlepped into the front yard, taking a breather.

Coiled hoses spurted water, then froze powerlessly onto the lawn. The white clapboard cottage was burned to a crisp; charred doors ripped from hinges, smashed glass and shredding paint. Firefighters axed and ventilated the inferno.

One fire engine red Adidas high top sneaker leaned inside the open doorway in contrast to the mess. Bells chimed at the red brick church up the street, calling the close knit community to pray.

The Westwood volunteer fire captain wheezed, yanking off soggy gloves, plastered with grime and a family’s lost memories.

“It’s as close to hell as you can get in there,” Marsh stopped, speaking to Capt. Dave Miles, who warmed himself by the tanker.

“I sure hope their Christmas presents are hidden over there in that building,” responded Miles, facing a still intact garage. “Otherwise, they’re probably all gone.”

What started out as four Fairview High School buddies getting together to cook breakfast hastily turned into catastrophe. Alex Johnson, Kein Price and Drew Daugherty stopped at friend Brandon Webb’s home to hang out. No adults were home.

The 16 year olds preheated the oven for a morning meal and plopped on the couch in the adjoining living room. An aluminum saucepan of oily paraffin candle wax softened on the stove. Moments later the pals noticed an orange glow radiating from the kitchen and realized the wax was ablaze.

“We tried to pour water on it but it turned into a grease fire. It flashed back into my face,” said Johnson, pulling up his sweatshirt sleeve to show a singe on his forearm.

“I’d never seen anything like that. It went up fast. The entire kitchen was on fire within 30 seconds. There was nothing more we could do, so we got everyone out and called 911,” said the Westwood teen, shaking his head, eyeing the reduced to ashes home.

Westwood Fire Chief Brent Webster said the candle’s wick was removed, and the boys were melting it down on the range to make it last longer. When the wax temperature reached 800 to 1,200 degrees, it became dangerously hot and ignited. Water poured on it caused a flash fire and it accelerated quickly like an oil fire moves through a structure, sustaining itself.

Webster, a firefighting veteran, hadn’t seen a paraffin fire before and was alarmed by its intensity. He called Kentucky State Police investigator Detective Rodney Carroll, who ruled the fire accidental, he said. call. The home was already an inferno, flames shooting out two sides. Whipping winds hampered the team’s firefight, causing the fire to loop from room to room, broadening and combusting swiftly. The Summit Ironville and Flatwoods volunteer fire departments were called for backup, Webster said.

“A fire this hot doubles in size every minute, so the entire house was engulfed within seven to 10 minutes.”

“It was crazy. I never dealt with anything this scary,” said Price, who escaped without injury. He just got off the phone with his dad, Jimmy Price, who was relieved to hear his son was safe.

Kein Price has known Brandon Webb for more than 12 years. It hurts knowing his classmate lost most everything.

“We will be by his side,” said Kein Price, who lives in Westwood. “We pull together at Fairview.”

Daugherty was visibly shaken, watching the house smolder from a neighbor’s driveway. The Ashlander said the experience changed him dramatically.

“We just knew we had to get out. I guess we take for granted how quickly something like this can happen and how your life can change in a second. I think it taught us to be safe and think about what you do before you do it.”

Webster praised the young men for their bravery and quick response.

“It was admirable for kids their age. They kept their heads straight and got out of the house.

“It was so dark in there, no visibility at all. It’s like if you ever go to Carter Caves when they turn off the lights inside the cave. That’s what it feels like,” he said, pointing to a new helmet scorched by the flames.

“It’s cooked. It was over 1,000 degrees in the attic and probably 500 degrees on the floor.”

Boyd County paramedics were on watch, ready to tend to injured members of the brigade who fought blowing embers for almost four hours. Webster said putting out fires in winter is grueling. Once bunker gear is cold and wet, it’s impossible to warm up.

Westwood Deputy Fire Chief Tim England twisted his knee but didn’t seek treatment.

The homeowner, Chris Webb, was on his way home late Sunday afternoon to gauge his losses. He was in Cleveland when the fire broke out. Son Brandon was taken away by family members but returned to the house later, thankful to be alive, Webster said.

The fire crew saved two bedrooms. Webster hopes the residents can salvage some belongings.

He said there are lessons to be learned from the fire, especially during the holiday season. Read the instructions on candles and potpourri pots, using them only in the intended manner. If a candle gets out of control, use a fire extinguisher or simply run from the home and call for help.
