    The 3M Co. has agreed to pay $9.1 million to settle allegations it knowingly sold defective combat ear plugs to the U.S. military without disclosing defects that limited the effectiveness of the hearing protection devices, the U.S. Justice Department said on Thursday. A settlement frees 3M from the inconvenience of a long investigation and litigation, it said. The 3M payment settles allegations that 3M and its predecessor, Aearo Technologies Inc., knew the ear plugs it sold the military were too short for proper insertion into the users' ears and could loosen and not perform effectively in some people, the Justice Department said.

  • Queen's physician, Dr Peter Fisher, killed in crash with lorry while cycling in central London

    Golocal247.com news

    The Queen’s doctor has been killed by a lorry while cycling in a notorious Central London accident hotspot. Dr Peter Fisher, one of three official Physicians to The Queen and a renowned homeopathist, was crushed by the vehicle on Wednesday morning in High Holborn, near to the Royal London Hospital for Integrated Medicine where he had practised for 35 years. The 67-year-old is understood to have taken up cycling to work only in the last two years and was killed on “Cycle To Work Day”, a national campaign to champion pedal power over cars. Last night campaigners said his death highlighted the deficiency of safety measures protecting cyclists from lorries. Dr Peter Fisher, pictured with the Queen in 1999, was a member of the royal medical household Credit: David Sandison/REX/Shutterstock In the last five years, four have been killed near the same spot in Holborn alone. The collision with a CCF lorry, a sub-brand of Travis Perkins, took place at about 9.30am. One eyewitness, Angei Bozianu, manager of the nearby Princess Louise pub, told the Evening Standard: “I heard a woman screaming and I looked out of the window and he was under wheel.” Dr Peter Fisher, pictured in 2016, was a leading expert in homeopathy The Metropolitan Police said the lorry driver had stopped at the scene, was not under arrest and was assisting with their enquiries. But they also appealed for witnesses to come forward. Buckingham Palace confirmed the Queen had been informed. Greg white, chief executive of the Faculty of Homeopathy, said: “We have lost a leader, not just for the faculty but for homeopathy in the UK and worldwide. “It’s no exaggeration to say Peter is an irreplaceable talent. “He truly was a giant in all his fields of endeavour, which included clinician, research and academic.” A sometimes controversial figure, Dr Fisher believed passionately in the power of homeopathy, a belief that highly diluted substances can induce the body to heal itself. The practice is regarded as no better than a placebo by most of the medical profession and has now been all but banished from the NHS. Evidence markers beneath a lorry at the scene of the fatality Credit: Rob Pinney/LNP  His advocacy alongside his position in the royal household attracted some criticism, but he always pointed out that homeopathists have been treating the Royal Family since the reign of Queen Victoria. However, he revealed in an interview with The Daily Telegraph in January that, three years after taking up his position in 2001, he received a “serious dressing down” from the head of the medical household, Sir Richard Thompson, for mentioning his Royal connection during a public argument about homeopathy. Sir Richard last night confirmed the incident took place but added Dr Fisher was “a very nice man” and “absolutely passionate about homeopathy”. It is understood Dr Fisher has grown-up children. Meanwhile a colleague told The Daily Telegraph: “He had a marriage behind him and was moving forward in life with a new partner. “It’s such a tragedy and a terrible irony it happened on national cycle to work day.” Emergency services at the scene of the crash in High Holborn on Wednesday morning Credit: Rob Pinney/LNP Dr Gill Gaskin, medical director for University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, the umbrella body for Dr Fisher’s hospital, where he served as Director of Research, said he was: “A highly regarded colleague and friend”. Duncan Dollimore, head of campaigns at charity Cycling UK, said Dr Fisher’s death highlights why there must be greater efforts to protect riders from lorries. "That's why more needs to be done to separate cyclists from lorries in areas like Holborn, the scene of four cyclists' deaths in the last five years, and to ensure that only the safest lorries, which eliminate vehicle blind spots, are allowed into London," he said. The London Cycling Campaign intends to hold a protest in Holborn next Monday.

    German chemicals and pharmaceuticals giant Bayer said Thursday that it would begin integrating seeds and pesticides maker Monsanto after a mega-merger, but its stock price was battered by the US firm's legal woes. Two months after the $63 billion deal -- the biggest ever foreign takeover by a German company -- Bayer completed the sale of a final tranche of crop science businesses worth 5.9 billion euros ($6.7 billion) to rival BASF under concessions imposed by cartel watchdogs. With competition authorities' conditions met, "the integration of Monsanto into the Bayer Group can begin," the Leverkusen-based company said in a statement.

  • Rising sea levels threatens coastal cities with more tsunamis, scientists warn

    Golocal247.com news

    Tsunamis will become more common and more ferocious with global warming, scientists have warned after a study found that global sea level rises will increase the risk of coastal cities being wiped out. Smaller earthquakes that currently pose no serious tsunami threat could unleash waves capable of inundating coastal cities, researchers found in a study focusing on the city of Macau in China. Currently it is considered safe from tsunamis, despite lying within a major earthquake zone. At today's sea level, it would take a very powerful earthquake tipping past magnitude 8.8 to cause widespread tsunami flooding in Macau. But a half-metre rise in sea level - predicted to occur in the region by 2060 - could more than double the chances of a huge tsunami swamping the territory, according to the research. A three-foot sea level rise, expected by 2100, would increase the risk up to 4.7 times. The source of the earthquake danger is the Manila Trench, a massive crack in the floor of the South China Sea formed by the collision of two tectonic plates. It has generated numerous earthquakes, though none larger than magnitude 7.8 since the 1560s. A modest rise in sea levels would greatly amplify the tsunami threat from smaller earthquakes, the computer simulation study showed. Cities most prone to natural disaster Lead researcher Dr Robert Weiss, from Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) in the US, said: "Our research shows that sea-level rise can significantly increase the tsunami hazard, which means that smaller tsunamis in the future can have the same adverse impacts as big tsunamis would today. "The South China Sea is an excellent starting point for such a study because it is an ocean with rapid sea-level rise and also the location of many mega cities with significant worldwide consequences if impacted." The team's findings are reported in the journal Science Advances.

  • Pentagon says China military 'likely training for strikes' on U.S. targets

    The assessment, which comes at a time of heightened U.S.-China tensions over trade, was contained in an annual report that highlighted China's efforts to increase its global influence, with defense spending that the Pentagon estimates exceeded $190 billion in 2017. "Over the last three years, the PLA has rapidly expanded its overwater bomber operating areas, gaining experience in critical maritime regions and likely training for strikes against U.S. and allied targets," the report said, using an acronym for China's People's Liberation Army. The report comes as China and the United States plan to hold trade talks, offering hope they might resolve an escalating tariff conflict that threatens to degenerate into an all-out trade war.

  • White supremacist scolded live on camera by his father during interview

    Golocal247.com news

    The organiser of a white supremacist march in Washington DC at the weekend has been left red-faced, after a video emerged showing him being scolded by his father during an interview in his family home. Jason Kessler, 34, organised last year’s Unite the Right rally in Charlottesville, which resulted in the death of counter protester Heather Heyer. He organised an anniversary march in DC this weekend, which was attended by a few dozen people, and dwarfed by a huge counter-protest. In a clip circulated on Tuesday, originally filmed in June, he was recording an hour-long livestream with the alt-Right Patrick Little discussing Jews, when his father barged in furiously told him off, mid-interview. “Hey! You get out of my room!” yelled Eric Kessler, Jason Kessler’s father. Mr Little, 33, who ran an unsuccessful campaign for a Senate seat in California, chuckles at the interruption of his neo-Nazi conspiracy theories concerning Jews, castration and slavery. He asks: “You got a drunk roommate there?” Jason Kessler, escorted by police during his August 12 rally outside the White House Credit: AFP Looking sheepish, Mr Kessler tried to explain the situation to his friend, saying: “I have somebody who supports Israeli, uh... orthodox… We are kind of at crosshairs on that right now.” His father presses on, yelling at Mr Kessler: “I want this to stop in my room, Jason. This is my room.” Mr Little can be heard sniggering as Mr Kessler excuses himself and walks off-screen. “You’re not living with an Orthodox Jew are you?” Mr Little asks. Mr Kessler tries to explain the rift in his house, saying: “My family watches the History Channel and it’s all this propaganda – ‘the Nazis’ and ‘the Jews’."  He goes on to complain his father is “cucked” — an insult often used by the alt-Right — because he watches “constant anti-German propaganda” on the History Channel. When he wants to express his views on Jews, he retreats to his father’s bedroom, he explained. “And I’m stuck in this situation where, with all these lawsuits, I need to stay with my family.” Counterprotesters in Washington DC on August 12 Credit: AFP Mr Little nods, explaining that he is planning on renting out the houseboat on which he lives to pay for his expenses. Eric Kessler told The Washington Post earlier this year that his family was “dismayed across the board about this situation. We’ve never identified with racial politics.” He added that despite living in the same house he had very little interaction with his son since he learned of his radical views, shortly before last year’s rally. Jason Kessler, however, told the paper that he has been treated unfairly. “I’ve been turned into an avatar of hate,” he said.
