On rappelle aux NéoÉcossais de vérifier le niveau de radon dans lair

first_img Pour obtenir plus d’information sur le radon et sur les lignes directrices de Santé Canada, consultez le site Web du ministère de l’Environnement à l’adresse www.gov.ns.ca/nse/airlandwater/radon.asp (en anglais seulement). Il est facile et peu dispendieux de protéger votre maison et vos proches contre le radon. Le radon est un gaz radioactif naturel inodore et sans aucun goût qui se forme lorsque l’uranium se décompose naturellement dans la terre et les rochers. Les appareils de vérification qui peuvent être envoyés par la poste sont abordables et conviviaux. « Lorsqu’il est libéré dans l’air extérieur, le radon est dilué et sans danger, mais lorsqu’il est libéré à l’intérieur, par exemple dans une maison, il peut parfois s’accumuler à des niveaux élevés, a dit le Dr Robert Strang, administrateur en chef de la santé publique de la Nouvelle-Écosse. Le radon pose un risque pour la santé lorsque les gens sont exposés à des niveaux élevés pendant de nombreuses années. C’est pourquoi il est important de vérifier l’air dans votre maison. » Puisque les fenêtres et les portes restent généralement fermées en hiver, il s’agit d’une période propice pour la vérification du niveau de radon accumulé dans la surface habitable. Selon les lignes directrices de Santé Canada, la quantité de radon dans les édifices et les maisons ne doit pas dépasser 200 becquerels par mètre cube. Les appareils de vérification, y compris les trousses d’analyses en laboratoire que vous envoyez par la poste, sont disponibles auprès des entreprises qui effectuent des vérifications environnementales ou sur Internet, à un prix variant de 50 $ à 100 $. Santé Canada recommande que les appareils soient laissés en place pendant au moins trois mois. La plupart des problèmes liés au radon sont faciles à résoudre. Les propriétaires de maison peuvent embaucher un entrepreneur pour résoudre de tels problèmes. Si une vérification du niveau de radon indique un niveau supérieur à 200 becquerels par mètre cube : Scellez toutes les fissures et ouvertures dans les murs de fondation et les planchers, et autour des tuyaux et des drains. Couvrez le plancher du sous-sol et les murs de fondation de deux couches de peinture puis d’un agent d’étanchéité. Rénovez les planchers de sous-sol existants, particulièrement les planchers en terre.last_img read more

Palestine Trump Administration Unveils First stage of Deal of the Century

Rabat – The White House has uncovered the first phase of the Trump administration’s much-awaited “deal of the century” for the Israel-Palestine Conflict.The deal appears to put greater emphasis on the economic and human development approach to crisis management, reiterating the Trump administration’s desire to go beyond what it perceives as decades of ideological and ineffective diplomacy in the Palestine-Israel question.In its latest announcement on the preparation phase of the “deal of the century,” Washington referred to plans for a workshop on the economic prospects of the deal, in late June of this year. On Sunday, the White House announced that it was organizing a “Peace to Prosperity” workshop in Manama, Bahrain, on June 25 and 26. Washington said the workshop is expected to bring together finance ministers along with global and regional business leaders to discuss the economic future of the disputed regions once a permanent solution is brokered.The choice of finance ministers and business leaders instead of foreign affairs ministers and diplomats is a sufficient indication of the current White House’s plan to upend the traditional way in which the US has tried to broker a peace deal in the Middle East’s longest running and most complex crisis.Jared Kushner, President Trump’s son-in-law and senior adviser, who is believed to be the mastermind behind Trump’s Middle East deal, told CNN on Sunday that one crucial element of the Trump administration’s philosophy in the Palestinian conflict is to draw attention to aspects of the crisis that have been willfully ignored by successive Washington establishments.According to Kushner, the deal’s central idea is to get past decades of apparently unfounded hostility and move forward, towards a “realistic and viable” political future for the region.Kushner said, “People are letting their grandfathers’ conflict destroy their children’s futures. This will present an exciting, realistic and viable pathway forward that does not currently exist.”At the Manama workshop, participants are expected to dodge the political—and by extension social—aspects of the conflict, especially pertaining to the fate of Palestinians’ demand for an independent state as well as the status of Jerusalem.Instead, debates will revolve around ways to make the disputed regions—especially Gaza and the West Bank—investment hubs and more business-friendly metropoles.Veiled in Trump’s grand plan is the push to modernize and develop the region to subsume Palestinians’ grievances and demands for self-determination. Kushner explained that the first phase of the project will consist in devising an economic plan for the aftermath of the conflict.With infrastructure, industry, financial empowerment, and grand investments as its core elements, the economic plan will aim at making “the [disputed] area as investible as possible,” according to Kushner.A doomed master plan?Also central in the White House’s announcement of its “Peace to Prosperity” conference is the Trump’s administration’s confidence that its way is the only way.Even as Trump faced—and continues to face—an outpouring of criticism over his unapologetically Evangelical and overwhelmingly Israel-friendly stance on the Middle East’s oldest conflict, the US president has remained unbowed. Judging by Sunday’s announcement, the Trump administration seems to ooze an unbreakable attachment to the security of Israel.But the deal’s principal selling point is that, while upholding Israel’s security concerns, the plan will simultaneously guarantee human development and economic prosperity opportunities for Palestinians. According to the White House, the workshop aims to “facilitate discussions on an ambitious achievable vision and framework for a prosperous future for the Palestinians.”But while Trump wants to kill two birds with one stone—bend the peace plan to Israel’s will while providing guarantees for better economic prospects for Palestinians, the Palestinian leadership is not buying Trump’s idea.Instead, a number of senior Palestinian officials said in the aftermath of the White House’ announcement, Palestinians will not bow down to “blackmail” from Washington.Nabil Abu Rdeneh, a spokesperson to Palestine’s Mahmoud Abas, said that there will be no genuine peace discussions if the political aspect of the conflict is not given the spotlight it deserves. “Any plan without political horizons will not lead to peace,” the Palestinian official said.Saeb Erekat, a well-known Palestinian senior diplomat and negotiator, was even punchier and more scathing in his assessment of Trump’s deal. Erekat complained that the Trump administration did consult the Palestinian leadership about the “reported workshop—neither over the content, nor the outcome, nor timing.”Having been previously adamant that Trump’s Jerusalem move definitely disqualified him as a “serious and reliable broker,” the Palestinian diplomat said in reaction to the planned deal that Palestinians will not engage with Trump’s peace terms.“All efforts to make the oppressor and the oppressed coexist are doomed to fail,” Erekat said. “We do not submit to blackmail and we do not trade our political rights for money.” read more

Indigenous education boosts womens health and education prospects – UN

A supportive policy environment as well as political commitment is needed to ensure quality indigenous education both as a right in itself and as a means to improve the economic and health prospects of women, the United Nations Permanent Forum on Indigenous Issues has been told. Several recent studies show that one extra year beyond primary school boosts economic possibilities for women by 10 per cent, leads to greater literacy and lower fertility, reduces child mortality and fosters democratic citizenship, Linda King, Interim Chief of the Section on Education for Peace and Human Rights in the UN Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), told the Forum. Some 1,500 people from 500 groups are meeting over the next two weeks in the Forum’s third session at UN Headquarters in New York to focus attention on indigenous women and girls, whose well-being is critical to the survival and prosperity of their peoples’ unique culture in this age of globalization. In her address yesterday, Ms. King noted that increased literacy among women had a greater effect on child mortality rates than increased literacy among males. Other research shows a link between the expansion of education and increased economic activity, she added. Also, children who went to school were more likely to protect themselves against diseases such as HIV/AIDS. Among requirements she listed for quality education were both formal and non-formal teaching methods at home and in the community, indigenous knowledge in educational curricula and innovative solutions for portraying indigenous knowledge systems as equal to Western systems. Other needs include culture-based curricula appropriate to the community, curricula promoting positive aspects of indigenous cultures, and the use of indigenous languages. In addition, teachers should be familiar with indigenous cultures and languages, and use responsive and experiential teaching methods. Opening the Forum on Tuesday, Secretary-General Kofi Annan said despite a dramatic shift in global attitudes, indigenous peoples still suffered disproportionately from extreme poverty and faced serious barriers to health care and basic education. The Forum advises and makes recommendations to the UN Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC) on social development, economic, cultural, human rights, environmental, education and health issues. read more

Alberta strikes deal with power producers to end coalfired electricity by 2030

by Dean Bennett, The Canadian Press Posted Nov 24, 2016 4:08 pm MDT Last Updated Nov 24, 2016 at 6:01 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Alberta strikes deal with power producers to end coal-fired electricity by 2030 EDMONTON – Alberta has struck a deal with three major power producers to formally end coal-fired electricity in the province by 2030.Environment Minister Shannon Phillips announced Thursday that the province will pay three major power producers a total of $97 million a year over the next 14 years to compensate them for the shut down and to help them transition to cleaner forms of energy.“This is a made in Alberta plan for Alberta’s electricity market,” Phillips said, noting that the federal government recently announced it will act to phase out coal-fired electricity in the same time frame.“There are two choices: we can either act on a made-in-Alberta plan or wait for policy to be imposed on us.”The payments will be spread amongst TransAlta, Capital Power and Atco. The money will come out of the carbon levy on heavy industrial emitters.Phillips said the deal will not result in higher power bills.Under the terms of the deal the power producers are to keep their headquarters in Alberta, continue to invest in the province and work to provide support to the communities affected by the shutdown.There are 18 coal-fired electricity units in Alberta. All but six of them are already scheduled to shut down before 2030.Ending coal-fired electricity is one pillar of the climate change plan introduced last year by Premier Rachel Notley’s government.The province plans to replace the coal-fired electricity with natural gas fired power and a mix of renewables, including solar, wind, and hydro.It is also introducing a broad-based carbon tax on gasoline at the pumps and home and business heating bills, starting on Jan. 1.The coal shut down plan is based on a report from Terry Boston, a U.S.-based retired power executive.Boston estimates the transition to new gas-fired generation and renewables will require $20 to $30 billion worth of investment.He said the key to a smooth transition will be allowing about half of Alberta’s 18 coal-fired plants to be converted to natural gas by changing out the burners in existing boilers.He said transitioning to a greener energy mix is achievable, given the abundance of natural gas.Boston added that wind energy is abundant in the south and east, that solar power will grow as solar panel costs decline and that hydro can be developed in both western Alberta and the north.Opposition critics said the plan needs more specifics on how communities affected by the transition will be supported.“What about the small business in Hanna whose business is going to close now, (or) the homeowner in Forestburg who is seeing the value of their home disappear?” said Don MacIntrye of the Wildrose party.“The devil is in the details,” added Rick Fraser of the Progressive Conservatives.“We feel for these communities. We’re talking about thousands of people in Alberta that don’t know where their jobs are going to wind up.”Phillips’ announcement was the latest in a string of new initiatives announced this week detailing how province is transforming the energy market.The government will cap electricity costs at 6.8 cents a kilowatt hour in the short term to prevent homeowners from being hit by price spikes during the transition.Alberta will also begin revamping the system to one where private producers will also be able to bid on contracts to expand storage should the transition threaten electricity capacity. read more

Chicago elects black gay woman as mayor in historic vote

first_img Wednesday 3 Apr 2019, 12:08 PM Lightfoot celebrates at her election night rally at the Hilton Chicago after defeating Toni Preckwinkle, 2 April 2019. Image: AP/PA Images CHICAGO HAS BECOME the biggest US city to elect a black woman its mayor, as voters put their faith in an openly-gay political novice to tackle difficult problems of economic inequality and gun violence.Lori Lightfoot, a 56-year-old former federal prosecutor and practising lawyer who has never before held elected office, won the Midwestern city’s mayoral race in a lopsided victory.She beat out Toni Preckwinkle, a career politician who is also black, by a wide margin of 74 to 26% with most ballots counted.“We were up against powerful interests,” Lightfoot said in a victory speech, with her wife and young daughter by her side. “Today, you did more than make history, you created a movement for change,” she told a cheering crowd. Lightfoot will become Chicago’s first openly gay mayor as well as the first African America woman to hold the post.Since 1837, Chicago voters have elected only one black mayor and one female mayor.Her ascendancy to the top of Chicago government was a stunning development in a city where insider deals and entrenched party politics held sway for decades. “It is a city-wide rejection of the Chicago political establishment at the mayoral level,” Evan McKenzie, political science professor at the University of Illinois in Chicago, told AFP.Preckwinkle, the chief executive of Cook County in which Chicago is located, has for decades held various local elected offices, which analysts said hurt her in an election in which voters were looking to shake up city hall. Among the top issues were high levels of gun violence that claims more lives than in other major American cities, and years of political corruption in the Democratic stronghold. The initial field in the mayoral race consisted of 14 contenders, but Lightfoot managed an upset – sidelining moderates and establishment figures by promising to clean up city government and reduce economic inequality. She and Preckwinkle were the final two left competing in Tuesday’s run-off election.  Lori Lightfoot, left, kisses her spouse Amy Eshleman at her election night party. Source: Nam Y. Huh ’New ideas’ Voters left little doubt they wanted the next mayor to tackle the major issues vexing the city of 2.7 million people – including economic disparities and gun violence. “The message is that (voters) want new ideas and cleaner government,” McKenzie said. Community groups have for years complained about disparities in living conditions among the sprawling city’s diverse communities. Gun violence, fueled by gangs and the drug trade, plagues economically-depressed neighbourhoods in the South and West, which are majority African American. The downtown business district, and areas to the north and along the city’s famed lakeshore, have enjoyed an economic boom even as more than 550 people were murdered last year alone. Reforming the police department, which has a sordid history of abusive tactics, and city hall, which is mired in a federal corruption probe of one of its members, were priorities for voters, McKenzie said. Lightfoot headed a panel investigating the city’s policing problems and held a number of appointed positions in city government. She has promised to increase affordable housing, fight homelessness and crime, and boost oversight of the police department. “We can and will finally put the interests of our people, all of our people, ahead of the interests of a powerful few,” Lightfoot said Tuesday night.Laquan McDonald Lightfoot will replace outgoing mayor Rahm Emanuel – once a rising star in the Democratic Party and former president Barack Obama’s first White House chief of staff. The powerful Emanuel sustained political damage for his handling of the murder of black teenager Laquan McDonald and declined to run for a third term.Lightfoot emphasized during her campaign that she was among the few early candidates to declare her candidacy before Emanuel decided not to run again. McDonald was a 17-year-old boy shot dead by police in a 2014 encounter caught on police dash cam video. The video — showing officer Jason Van Dyke firing 16 bullets into the knife-wielding teen even after he fell to the ground — was not released for more than a year. Emanuel faced accusations of an attempted cover-up. He fired the police chief and brought in a reformer who instituted changes, worked to rebuild public trust, and reduced gun violence. But as Van Dyke was about to go on trial for murder in September, Emanuel announced he would not run for re-election. Van Dyke was convicted and sentenced to nearly seven years in prison. – © AFP 2019 , Chicago elects black, gay woman as mayor in historic vote Since 1837, Chicago voters have elected only one black mayor and one female mayor. 54 Comments https://jrnl.ie/4574596 By AFPcenter_img Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Lightfoot celebrates at her election night rally at the Hilton Chicago after defeating Toni Preckwinkle, 2 April 2019.

Brickworks Markets fate undecided

first_imgWest Torrens Council rescinded its decision not to renew traders’ leases at the Brickworks Markets in Torrensville, and has decided they will consider a range of options that may still include a lease for the traders. The fate of the traders at the Brickworks Market will be revealed on November 30. The outcome will have a detrimental effect on South Australia’s Greek community not only because many traders are Greek Australian, but because the elderly in the West Torrens Council area rely on the Brickwork Markets for cheap fruit and vegetables.“There are a lot of Greek traders but not only that, many of [Greek Australian] pensioners do their shopping at the Brickwork Markets as it has cheap fruit and vegetables,” says concerned MP Steve Georganas, adding on a Sunday morning, the markets are filled with the elderly in our community doing their weekly shopping. He said it’s paramount we support the traders in this to ensure the survival of the markets. West Torrens Mayor John Trainer called the special council meeting on Thursday night hoping votes from the full 14-member council would change the decision and give traders a chance to operate alongside the new shopping centre. Earlier this month, councillors had voted 6-4 not to offer a new lease to the Brickworks Markets Traders Association, opting to instead look at other uses for the land.Senator Nick Xenophon and Labor Member for Hindmarsh Steve Georganas joined in the fight to save the Brickworks Market traders from eviction and were instrumental in urging the West Torrens council to rescind their original decision. As it stands, the West Torrens Council is concerned at the cost of refurbishing the many stalls of the markets and without council support, the future for the traders looks grim. Woolworths – who have earmarked the site – said they want to work alongside the market, according to Mr Georganas. “Woolworths has said they only want the front part – the South Road end – and they want the markets to stay,” Mr Georganas tells Neos Kosmos. Established in 1983, the Brickworks Markets have developed into Adelaide’s premier market with a great variety of attractions and activities. The markets are built around the historic and heritage-listed Brickworks “kiln” and landmark chimney.“The Brickworks Markets is an icon in the western suburbs and it would be a pity to lose it,” he added saying it would be a “tragedy to see the Brickworks Markets disappear”.

Grexit gets official nod

first_imgIt may have been an issue of heated debate in the real world in recent years and an often-used term, but in the world of lexicographers, the word ‘Grexit’ did not exist until two weeks ago, when it was added to The Oxford English Dictionary.The dictionary’s online database is updated on a quarterly basis to incorporate words and phrases that are sufficiently established in the everyday use of the English language.With the Grexit scenario dominating headlines over the past three years, it was only a matter of time for the term to be deemed worthy of inclusion in the esteemed dictionary.Having placed its origin back in 2012, the Oxford team defined Grexit as: “A term for the potential withdrawal of Greece from the eurozone (the economic region formed by those countries in the European Union that use the euro as their national currency).”Among the new 1,000 words added is ‘Brexit’, referring to the potential or hypothetical departure of the United Kingdom from the EU.A new generation of neologisms (newly-coined words or expressions) have won ground in the English language, such as ‘hangry’ (an adjective describing someone who is bad-tempered or irritable as a result of hunger) and ‘awesomesauce’, meaning extremely good.One latest entry guaranteed to make you lose your appetite is the noun ‘fatberg’ – “a very large mass of solid waste in a sewerage system, consisting especially of congealed fat and personal hygiene products that have been flushed down toilets”.The dictionary has also officially recognised the terms ‘beer o’clock’ and ‘wine o’clock’ and ‘manspreading’, used to describe the practice when “a man, especially one travelling on public transport, adopts a sitting position with his legs wide apart, in such a way as to encroach on an adjacent seat or seats”.According to the senior editor of Oxford Dictionaries, Fiona McPherson, the addition of slang words and expressions does not reflect a degradation, but rather a natural evolution of the language.“There have always been new slang words. I just think we are more aware of them because of the ways in which we consume and live our lives now.“We are bombarded with more and more avenues where those sort of words are used and we just think that there are more of them. I don’t necessarily think that’s the case.“From my point of view, as a leixcographer, it’s not really about dumbing down, it’s more creative ways that people are using language.”Source: The Telegraph (UK) Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Man damages vehicles with manhole cover is arrested

first_imgOfficers arrested a severely agitated man who smashed a van window and a police patrol car windshield with a manhole cover Sunday afternoon near the Vancouver Farmers Market.Vancouver police officers were called to the Esther Short Park area downtown around 3:10 p.m.Sgt. Deb Libbey said a man there was behaving erratically near the market and making threats to kill people.An officer confronted the man, and the man armed himself with a manhole cover, telling the officer to call for help, Libbey said.“Which we did,” she said.The man then smashed a van’s window with the manhole cover.As more officers responded to attempt to corral the man, he apparently climbed on the hood of a patrol vehicle, then put a manhole cover through the car’s windshield, she said.Officers detained the man, she said, and he was taken to a hospital.Libbey said no one was hurt, adding that it appeared the man was dealing with a significant mental health crisis.Libbey said the department was not sharing his name until he’s released from the hospital and charged, but she said he may face felony assault and malicious mischief charges.“It was miraculous that nobody got injured, including him,” she said.last_img read more

Netanyahu faces Wednesday deadline to form government

first_imgIsraeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu chairs the weekly cabinet meeting in Jerusalem on 26 May. Photo: ReutersIsrael moved closer towards a new election on Monday as prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s efforts to form a government after last month’s national ballot remained deadlocked.In a preliminary vote, parliament decided to dissolve itself. In order to disperse and set an election date, legislators would still have to hold a final vote, likely to take place on Wednesday.Netanyahu, who heads the right-wing Likud party, has until 2100 GMT on Wednesday to put a government together, after being delegated the task by President Reuven Rivlin following the 9 April poll.In a televised address following the initial vote in parliament, Netanyahu pledged to continue pursuing coalition talks and said a new vote would be unnecessary and costly.”A lot can be done in 48 hours,” he said. “The voters’ wishes can be respected, a strong right-wing government can be formed.”In power for the past decade and facing potential corruption indictments, Netanyahu has struggled to seal an agreement with a clutch of right-wing, far-right and ultra-Orthodox Jewish parties that would ensure him a fifth term.Netanyahu has denied any wrongdoing and is due to argue against the attorney-general’s intention to indict him on fraud and bribery charges at a pre-trial hearing in October.US president Donald Trump weighed in on Netanyahu’s political woes in the face of political brinkmanship by the Israeli leader’s erstwhile ally, former defence minister Avigdor Lieberman.”Hoping things will work out with Israel’s coalition formation and Bibi and I can continue to make the alliance between America and Israel stronger than ever,” Trump tweeted, using Netanyahu’s nickname. “A lot more to do!”Although a second national election in the same year – unprecedented for Israel – would pose new political risks for Netanyahu, it would pre-empt Rivlin from assigning coalition-building to another legislator once Wednesday’s deadline expires.Conscription StatementDivisions between Lieberman’s ultra-nationalist Yisrael Beitenu party and United Torah Judaism over a military conscription bill governing exemptions for ultra-Orthodox Jewish seminary students have plunged the coalition talks into stalemate.The five parliamentary seats that Yisrael Beitenu won in the April ballot are crucial to Netanyahu gaining a parliamentary majority.Likud took 35 of the legislature’s 120 seats, the same number as its main rival, the centrist Blue and White party, but had the pledged support of a bigger right-wing bloc.In a standoff with United Torah Judaism, Lieberman has demanded ultra-Orthodox must share other Israeli Jews’ burden of mandatory service. Ultra-Orthodox parties say seminary students should be largely exempt from conscription as they have been since Israel was founded in 1948.But some commentators and members of Likud have suggested Lieberman’s real motive is to ultimately succeed Netanyahu and lead Israel’s right-wing, using the conscription bill and coalition stalemate to weaken him politically.”Avigdor Lieberman’s only interest is to seize control of the national camp by toppling Netanyahu,” deputy foreign minister and Likud member Tzipi Hotovely told Army Radio.Lieberman, who resigned his defence post in Netanyahu’s outgoing cabinet last November over policy towards the Palestinian enclave of Gaza, said he was acting only out of principle.In his speech, Netanyahu welcomed the supportive remarks of Trump, with whom he has been in lock-step over policies towards the Palestinians and Israel’s Iranian foe.”He (Trump) is right,” he said. “We have an infinite number of things to do, security challenges … economic challenges.”But Netanyahu said he had failed “so far, including tonight” to persuade Lieberman “to avoid an election”.last_img read more

An Algae Serum Is Being Used to Treat Wounded Animals And Humans

first_img Register Now » 4 min read Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Joe Landolina has always been a bit of a science nerd. Growing up he’d spend hours at his grandparents’ winery, finding plants in the vineyard and trying to see what he could extract from them. It was while he was tinkering with algae that the then 17-year-old discovered a liquid that would change into a solid quickly. “I always knew I wanted to go into medicine, so I thought of stopping a bullet wound [using that liquid].”Now 22, Landolina has started his own company called Suneris which makes Vetigel, a plant-based serum that, when applied to wounds, stops bleeding in seconds. It’s a product bigger than his initial aspirations. Joe Landolina of VetigelImage credit: Suneris”[Liquid bandage] doesn’t stop bleeding. It’ll seal the surface of a small cut but is not effective for traumatic bleeding.” Landolina says. “Vetigel makes a mechanical plug that holds the pressure in and also helps the body make its own clots.”Warning: the video below features heavy bleeding.Related: This MIT Grad Is Changing Medicine With a Needle-Covered PillWhile Landolina, along with his co-founder Isaac Miller and 25-person company, are still about a year away from being able to use its product on humans (if all goes well in the approval process), the entrepreneur has found an unexpected industry for Vetigel: animal health care. “Vets don’t have most of the tech that’s available to human patients,” Landolina says. He explains the standard of care for animals with traumatic bleeds is to use a gelatin sponge, but this method can take 10 minutes to staunch the bleeding, compared to seconds with Vetigel. This coupled with the fact that there are fewer federal regulations required to administer products to animals (as opposed to humans) has helped Suneris quickly break into the field.There are 3,500 veterinary clinics enrolled to use Vetigel once it’s distributed in the coming months. The company’s focus continues to be getting its product — retailing for $150 for five syringes — into the hands of surgeons, a high-use customer, as well as general practitioners (so they can begin do basic surgeries, rather than providing a referral to another doctor).Related: Bionic Eye Shows Promise for People With Age-Related Vision LossWith Vetigel’s current use and the possibility that it could one day be used on humans has caused a lot of interest among investors. The company has more than 60 investors, and they were easy to find. After Landolina hosted a Ted Talk (see below), Suneris had more interest than they could take on. “We had 1,200 accredited investors that asked to invest,” he says, adding that he and his team eventually asked potential backers to apply to be considered via a selection process. They whittled that batch of applications down to 40 (adding additional investors later on). Though Landolina wouldn’t give names, he says the backers are private individuals with high net worth, most of whom he had never met or had a connection to prior to investment. “We want someone who is not a VC, who’s passionate about the product, trusting of the team and has a network that’s beneficial,” he says. The funding Suneris has received is going toward research and development, along with focusing on the next step: getting FDA approval for human use. Everyone from military members to surgeons and emergency medical technicians could benefit from Vetigel’s abilities but that’s still a bit down the road. FDA approval for military and emergency use is expected within the next year or two and surgical use could be approved as soon as three years from now. To that end, the company is working on a new facility where they can work on researching, testing and manufacturing the version of Vetigel that would be used on people. Suneris hopes to find a suitable facility by early next year.For their launch event this summer, the backdrop was the Brooklyn Zoo. As vets and other guests filed in, a sea lion surfaced on a rock in his tank and barked. It was a happy sound, perhaps signaling approval.Related: Artificial Blood Transfusions Could Be a Reality By 2017 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own.
