16 September 2011United Nations agencies are scaling up their assistance to flood-affected people in Pakistan, where more than five million people are urgent need of food, shelter, safe water and access to health services. According to the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), some 5.5 million people have been affected so far by the flooding, which has also resulted in over 230 deaths, damage or destruction to 1.1 million homes and inundation of 4.5 million acres of land.Elisabeth Byrs, OCHA’s spokesperson in Geneva, told reporters that resource mobilization is currently a major constraint and organizations are using contingency stocks and diverting resources from early recovery programmes to meet life-saving needs. The UN is currently finalizing its emergency response plan, to be launched early next week and reviewed against evolving needs and more in-depth evaluations in a month’s time, she added. Meanwhile, the World Food Programme (WFP), which is providing food aid to 1.4 million people still recovering from last year’s devastating floods, is increasing life-saving food assistance to parts of Sindh province that have been hit the worst by the latest floods. WFP has distributed food to 15,300 people in the most-affected districts, notably Badin, the agency’s spokesperson in Geneva, Christiane Berthiaume, told reporters. The one-month rations include high-energy biscuits and specialised nutritious food for children such as Wawa Mum, a chick-pea paste made in Pakistan. The agency is aiming to provide emergency assistance to about half a million people by the end of the month and planned to scale up deliveries to reach 2.2 million by October. In addition to food distributions, WFP is providing logistical support to the humanitarian community amid the considerable damage to infrastructure caused by heavy rains. The UN Population Fund (UNFPA) is rushing reproductive health supplies to Sindh given the disruption to services in various health facilities. The agency estimates that at least 1.2 million women of reproductive age are among the 5 million people affected by the heavy monsoon rains and floods. At least 115,000 are pregnant. Among the major concerns is that women who were already severely anaemic will be even more prone to complications of pregnancy and delivery, the agency said in a news release. Also, with the continuing rains and stagnating water, pregnant women and newborns living in open air are increasingly exposed to malaria and dengue.UNFPA has dispatched supplies to cover the reproductive health needs of 600,000 people for one month in Sindh, and is moving 25 mobile service units to seven of the hardest-hit districts in the province. The vehicles are equipped to provide primary health care, basic emergency obstetric care and services responding to gender-based violence.“UNFPA ensures that women are able to deliver safely even in times of disaster. While our role remains the same whether in emergency, early recovery or development, in a humanitarian crisis our work becomes even more urgent as the vulnerability of women and girls is increased,” said Rabbi Royan, the agency’s country representative in Pakistan.Tarek Jasarevic, spokesperson for the World Health Organization (WHO), told a news conference in Geneva that the agency and its partners had conducted a rapid health assessment in the 22 affected districts of Sindh to identify the health services available to the population as well as existing gaps. The assessment found that 224 out of 839 health facilities in the affected areas were inaccessible, submerged by flood water or damaged, accounting for 33 per cent of all basic health units and 11 per cent of all rural health centres. Supplies of essential medicines were adequate thanks to pre-positioned buffer stocks which had been available at very short notice. However, if these stocks were not replenished, acute shortages of vaccines, medicines and consumables would occur, Mr. Jasarevic warned.Some 2.7 million of the total number of people affected are children, including 760,000 children below the age of five, according to the UN Children’s Fund (UNICEF). The agency is delivering safe water, sanitation and health supplies, such as vaccines and medicines, to ward off disease. Over the coming days it will be scaling up efforts to reach much larger numbers of children in the worst-affected areas.
“We live in a world marked by great progress in some areas, and great suffering in others,” the Secretary-General told an audience of some 800 people gathered for the Coalition’s weekly Saturday Morning Freedom Meeting. “Inequality within and between countries persists to a shameful degree, and if we are to create a safer, more stable world, we must close the gap between the rich and the poor.”Noting that this challenge was at the core of the United Nations work in fighting poverty, protecting children, promoting human rights, and advancing justice, Mr. Annan said that in this effort the UN was guided by the unprecedented unity of purpose expressed by the leaders of the world in the Millennium Declaration issued at the Millennium Summit two years ago. “In that Declaration, the leaders made clear that if we want peace and stability, we must also promote sustainable development and apply our efforts to reducing the hunger, disease, illiteracy and poverty that are debilitating millions” of people worldwide, he said, adding that at the heart of that document were eight Millennium Development Goals, which included combating HIV/AIDS, achieving universal primary education and promoting gender equality.”I have drawn your attention to these priorities of the United Nations because I believe they concern us all – Africans, African-Americans, citizens of the world,” he said. “We cannot stand by idly and witness the destruction caused by the scourges of poverty, AIDS, conflict or intolerance. We are united by this bond – men and women, black and white, citizens’ groups and the United Nations – and I am confident that the world can be the better for it.”The Secretary-General, who was awarded the Rainbow/PUSH Coalition for Global Unity Award during his visit to the organization’s headquarters, spoke earlier in the day to a number of local business and community leaders, as well as the representatives of Chicago’s consular corps.Introducing the Secretary-General, Rev. Jackson recalled that back in 1957, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., and other American civil rights leaders had attended the ceremonies marking the independence of Ghana, the home country of Mr. Annan, who was only a teenager at that time. History had come full circle, Rev. Jackson said, welcoming the Secretary-General.For his part, the Secretary-General said that Ghana’s independence movement had a strong impact on him. “You grow up believing that change is possible, peaceful change is possible,” he said, “and one should dare to make a difference and change. That’s a message I try to give young people: keep hope alive, be courageous, dare to change.”

(TSX:CLS) said Monday that it will cease manufacturing services for RIM over the next three to six months.RIM said it’s trying to cut costs with its suppliers.“As we outlined in our Q4 earnings call, we are making changes to our supply chain as part of wider efforts to improve the efficiency and cost effectiveness of RIM’s operations to help meet our strategic objectives and to deliver long-term value to our stakeholders,” the Waterloo, Ont., company said in an emailed statement.Celestica, which makes electronics components, said it has been working closely with RIM as the BlackBerry maker assesses its supply chain strategy.“Celestica has been a high-performing manufacturing supplier for RIM and will work closely with RIM throughout the transition,” the Toronto company said in a statement.Celestica could not be reached for further comment, saying more information would come when it releases second-quarter results on July 27. However, the company said that prior to any recoveries, its restructuring charges would not exceed US$35 million.Telecom analyst Anil Doradla said the decision isn’t surprising.“From RIM’s point of view, they need to streamline their manufacturing process so it’s all about cost-cutting,” said Doradla of Chicago-based William Blair & Co.“Right now, it’s all about tightening the belt and that goes all the way down to their supply chain,” Doradla said.Doradla said RIM has other component suppliers such as Florida-based Jabil Circuit and its components could be part of the new BlackBerry 10 smartphones due out later this year.RIM will have a tough job attracting and keeping BlackBerry users, he said.“I’ve looked at the handset industry for over a decade and I’ve never seen any handset company recover after making a series of strategic blunders. The graveyard of the handset industry is littered with bodies who have been darlings of the Street at one time,” he said, citing Sony Ericsson, Siemens and Phillips.RIM expected its new generation of BlackBerry smartphones to be out last year and its PlayBook tablet launch also was met with lukewarm reviews when launch in April 2011.Celestica, meanwhile, reaffirmed its second-quarter financial guidance provided April 24. The company anticipates revenue to be in the range of US$1.65 billion to US$1.75 billion, with adjusted net earnings of 20 to 26 cents per share.Toronto-based Celestica supplies components and equipment in the communications, computer, telecom aerospace, defence and other markets.On the Toronto Stock Exchange, Celestica shares were up 10 cents at $7.71 in early afternoon trading Monday, while RIM shares were down 25 cents at $10.92.Note to readers: This a corrected story: A previous version said Celestica’s Q2 results would be issued Friday
If you can’t stand the heat, get out of the … water?This is what one particular fish does when its home in tropical mangroves get “too hot for comfort,” a recent research team that included Brock biologist Glenn Tattersall has shown.Tiny, silver amphibious fish called the mangrove rivulus (Kryptolebias marmoratus), which look a bit like miniature sardines, were long known to jump out of the waters where they live, located in swamps from the southern United States to Brazil.Tattersall and the research team, led by biologist Patricia Wright at Guelph University, reared the mangrove rivulus fish for one year in water that was either at 25 or 30°C.Then, a webcam recorded the fish’s behaviour and body temperature as the researchers slowly raised the water temperature. The scientists were testing for two things: the temperature at which the fish would jump out of the water to avoid the heat; and whether or not being raised in different water temperatures would affect how much heat the fish could stand.The researchers found the fish jumped out of the water at around 35°C regardless of the water temperature at which they were raised.The team also wanted to know how quickly the fish’s body temperature cooled under various environmental conditions once the fish was out of the water.To do this, researchers had the fish jump onto filter papers that had varying degrees of humidity. The bodies of all fish started cooling in as little as 30 seconds and were cooler than the filter paper within one minute. The less humid the filter paper, the cooler were the fish, regardless of air temperature.“These results provide evidence of behavioural avoidance of high temperatures and the first quantification of evaporative cooling in an amphibious fish,” concludes the paper, a “flexibility that may be important for tropical amphibious fishes under increasing pressures from climatic change.”Tattersall said for the study, the fish were returned to the water so they didn’t die.“That’s the whole point of the study. If the water is too hot, they know to jump out and then they cool off since evaporation on land occurs. But they go back and forth between aquatic and terrestrial environments,” he said.He noted that Wright has studied the fish after they jump out of the water in her lab and found they can survive for 20 days out of water.The team’s research, titled “Out of the frying pan into the air—emersion behaviour and evaporative heat loss in an amphibious mangrove fish (Kryptolebias marmoratus),” was published in late October in the journal Biology Letters.Fish that can take advantage of evaporative cooling may have an evolutionary advantage over fully aquatic fish in coming years as coastal waters warm because of climate change, the researchers suggest.Mangrove rivulus (Kryptolebias marmoratus)
The University of Michigan and Chris Webber can officially reconnect after a 10-year ban was lifted by the NCAA on Wednesday. The ban was also lifted for Maurice Taylor and Louis Bullock.The NCAA forced Michigan to cut all ties from the three former Wolverines and the late Robert Traylor for a decade following a federal investigation. The investigation revealed that that deceased booster Ed Martin gave them more that $600,000 when they were student athletes.But now the option to renew the relationship with school is up to Webber, Taylor and Bullock. However, the Michigan has to be willing to want to reconnect as well.“I’ve never met any of those guys, and I am looking forward to meeting them,” Michigan athletic director Dave Brandon told The Associated Press in an interview Tuesday night. “If any of those guys are interested in meeting with me, that would be great.”Fellow Fab Five member Jalen Rose told the Detroit News that he has seen a line drawn that if Webber does not apologize then they will punish the rest of the members of the Fab Five. But Rose said it is not on Weber to issue an apology to Michigan in order to receive recognition for success that the group achieve, the university can do that despite what Webber decides to do.“This morning, I felt really good about the dissociation being over and having the opportunity to reunite with the University of Michigan,” Taylor told The AP on Wednesday. “I’m excited to talk to Mr. Brandon and coach (John) Beilein. While I had some success in the NBA, there was a void in my life because of the circumstances.”Martin, who died in February 2003, plead guilty to conspiracy to laundering money, saying that he used gambling money and combined other funds in loans to Webber, other players and their families.“Ed was made out to be something he wasn’t, he wasn’t a booster who steered you to a school or guy who preyed on kids,” Taylor said. “He was just a great guy in Detroit, who helped out anybody playing ball of any kind in the city.”With the ban lifted, Webber can possibly reunite with his fellow Fab Five members to see their 1992 and 1993 Final Four banners go back up in the rafters, if Michigan chooses to do so.Rose, Webber, Juwan Howard, Jimmy King and Ray Jackson attended the NCAA final in Atlanta last month. However, Webber chose to sit in a suite to watch the game.“You can’t think of Michigan without thinking of us,” Webber said in a 2007 interview with the AP.
An Oxford professor has resigned from his role over claims one of the university’s wealthy donors is a supporter of Donald Trump.Swedish academic Bo Rothstein, who was Professor of Government and Public Policy at the Blavatnik School of Government at Oxford University, alleged the school’s namesake had made a substantial donation to the Trump campaign.USSR-born Sir Leonard Blavatnik, who is Britain’s richest man, provided £75m of financial backing to Oxford University to build the school.Professor Rothstein said in a resignation letter: “As I see it, Donald Trump’s policies are also antithetical to the goal of the Blavatnik School of Government, which aims to improve the quality of government and public policymaking worldwide, so that citizens can enjoy more secure and more fulfilled lives.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. A spokesman for Mr Blavatnik said: “Neither Mr. Blavatnik nor his company, Access Industries, have ever donated to President Trump or his campaign. “Access Industries made a donation to the Presidential Inaugural Committee, a joint Congressional committee that has been responsible for organizing the inauguration ceremonies of every U.S. president since 1901 and which helps to organize public and private events during the week leading up to the Inauguration. Sir Leonard Blavatnik funded a new school of government in OxfordCredit: Valery Levitin/Kommersant The Blavatnik School building in OxfordCredit:Stephen Sykes /Alamy Mr Blavatnik was named Britain’s richest man in 2015 and according to this year’s Sunday Times rich list, his £15.9bn fortune puts him second only to the joint wealth of brothers Sri and Gopi Hinduja.The industrialist built his wealth through his company Access Industries and now counts Warner Music Group as part of his empire.His donation to Oxford University was criticised at the time as a sign of the university “selling its reputation and prestige to Putin’s associates” in a letter to the Guardian coordinated by Ilya Zaslavskiy, an employee of a Russian oil company and Oxford graduate who ran Moscow’s Oxford alumni association. The university said it was “unclear” why Prof. Rothstein would resign over any political donations made by Sir Leonard, given he had made no attempt to influence the school’s academic agenda. “The types of events that the Presidential Inaugural Committee plans and supports include public concerts, fireworks, lunches, dinners, the inauguration ceremony, and the inaugural parade.”A spokesman for Oxford University said: “Professor Rothstein is a distinguished researcher and scholar in the field of Government, and the School is sorry to have received his resignation. However, we are unclear why he has resigned over political donations made by Sir Leonard Blavatnik, which are completely unconnected to the Blavatnik School of Government.”As an American citizen, Sir Leonard is entitled to make donations and give support to whichever politicians he chooses. The School would never try to influence the political preferences of its donors or to comment upon them. The School’s mission is to promote good government, not any particular programme for governing.”Conversely, Sir Leonard has never attempted to influence the School’s academic agenda, or who we hire or with whom we work.” The letter seen by the Guardian added: “Mr Blavatnik’s decision to support Donald Trump makes it impossible for me to continue at the Blavatnik School of Government.”But a spokesman for Mr Blavatnik said neither he nor his company Access Industries had never donated to President Trump or his campaign.Mr Blavatnik has made donations to politicians from both US parties according to records, from former Vice President Joe Biden to Republican senator Ben Sasse.

David Moult, CEO & MD, Centennial Coal provided the first Austmine networking session of 2017 last week. The event was sponsored by Joy Global and Akzo Nobel, and the audience first heard from Jason Savage, President Australia at Joy Global and Kriben Thambiran, Project Manager – Northern, at Akzo Nobel.Moult has been with Centennial Coal for the last 20 years and has over 37 years of coal mining experience. He is stepping down from his role with Centennial at the end of March (EGM of Operations, Mick Cairney, will step up into the role), but Moult will remain on the board of Centennial and is still heavily invested in its future.The title of his presentation was In a Changing Market Where Will Centennial’s Growth come from?, in which he discussed three key areas:Where’s the market now and what does it mean for a company investing into the sector?Centennial’s projects: their status and pending tendering timelinesLow emission power stations.He quickly went through a summary of Centennial Coal’s business, which includes five underground operating mines, all managed on an owner-operator model, with 60% domestic sales vs. 40% export sales. He also shared some insights into Centennial’s strategy plan from the end of 2016, which included acknowledgment of key external events impacting on the Australian energy market, such as the commencement in 2016 of major Queensland LNG export projects, the 2020 Renewable Energy Target of 33TWh and 2030 COP21 Paris targets.Moult then went on to touch on global issues that are affecting the coal market in Australia, including the growth from 2015 – 2016 of demand from China, Vietnam, Malaysia and the Philippines (although this was hindered somewhat by a drop in demand from Europe, driven largely by the UK limited coal imports). China’s greatest focus is on employment, and the coal prices last year made many Chinese coal mines unfeasible. David noted that on a global scale, the volume of coal being produced in China will maintain its dominant position, but in regards to its percentage contribution to domestic energy, there is strong growth in renewables and nuclear. India is of course another country that’s been on many lips over the last few years, with some banking on it to replace China in terms of demand and others dismissing it. Moult commented that the Indian government is pushing state-owned power plants, that can be supplied by Indian mines. There was expectation of huge growth in demand from India, which hasn’t happened, but he warned the audience: “You ignore India at your peril!”.He then moved on to focus on Centennial, and he started with its key takeaways for 2017:Maintain cost and productivity focusOptimise opportunity to take advantage of higher export pricesContinuous drive for operational efficiencyMaximise cash generation.Centennial evaluates different growth options in a couple of ways: firstly, in relation to organic versus inorganic growth and secondly in relation to risk, taking into account the current portfolio. He mentioned that 2016 was a good time to look at distressed assets (inorganic growth), but currently Centennial is focused on organic growth and their existing assets: Airly, Angus Place, Neubeck and Newstan.Centennial is an underground coal miner, but would like to consider some open-pit mines in the future, to balance the high risk of being an underground miner. He summed up this risk nicely: “No matter how many boreholes you put down, you can’t know everything that’s below the seam.”.Centennial has an emphasis on capital productivity, and sees a major part of the solution to this as being technology and automation. Springvale mine’s longwall is fully automated and using guidance technology built out of the USA which he was very impressed by: “Once you press the button, it keeps that machine here. I started working in longwall back in the 1970s and I’ve never seen a longwall as consistently straight as that!”Bolting automation has been another area of focus, in particular the idea of spin to stall, which saves seconds per bolt: when you’re putting thousands of bolts in per year, that’s a lot of time. Centennial Coal has invested in its own operations centre at Fassifern (he noted it also takes advantage of Joy Global’s “incredibly advanced” operations centre, as Centennial is a client of Joy), where engineers can do some real-time data analysis and feed it back to the operations teams. Some 50–60% of the machines (going across cutting, haulage and feeder breakers) are on real time monitoring and pumping out reports which are presented in a tactical dashboard. This is occurring across all of Centennial’s mines and it’s working well, allowing the supervisors on shift to make informed decisions.Moult pointed out that Centennial is passionate about its partnerships: “We do have some very strong supplier relationships and I think over the last few years they have strengthened.” Over 2,000 suppliers work with Centennial, and it is partnering with OEMs and universities on researching and developing new technology, ranging from proximity detection, auto-bolters (he urged the audience to speed up developing these, as they are critical for the sector) and remote power supply created by conveyor rollers, a suggestion which prompted a lot of nodding heads in the audience. Moult then went into detail on each of Centennial’s four projects that form the focus for the years up to 2023. He discussed timelines on tendering, production, and the specific mining method that will allow Centennial to remain sustainable and competitive into the future.
By AFP Former FBI Director James Comey. Image: J. Scott Applewhite via PA 12,862 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 15 Comments Thursday 29 Aug 2019, 9:30 PM FORMER FBI DIRECTOR James Comey violated agency policies when he leaked memos documenting conversations with President Donald Trump, the Justice Department’s watchdog today.Comey, who was fired by Trump in 2017 after allegedly resisting the president’s entreaties to drop an investigation into former national security advisor Michael Flynn, wrote the memos after meeting Trump during his early days at the White House.One memo said the president asked Comey to shut down an investigation into Flynn, who eventually admitted lying to the FBI about conversations with Russia’s ambassador.The admission led to one of the earliest indictments to come from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into contacts between Russia and the Trump 2016 election campaign. The Justice Department’s Office of Inspector General berated Comey for asking an acquaintance teaching at Columbia University to share the contents of the memo with The New York Times.Comey set a “dangerous example” for FBI employees in an attempt to “achieve a personally desired outcome,” the report states. But it found “no evidence that Comey or his attorneys released any of the classified information contained in any of the memos to members of the media” and said prosecutors had declined to bring a case.Comey, who was among 17 people interviewed by the IG’s office for the investigation, immediately responded on Twitter, saying a “quick message with a ‘sorry we lied about you’ would be nice”.Comey singled out the president, who has repeatedly upbraided the former law enforcement official as a “leaker” since details of the memos emerged.“And to all those who’ve spent two years talking about me ‘going to jail’ or being a ‘liar and a leaker’ — ask yourselves why you still trust people who gave you bad info for so long, including the president,” Comey said.Trump, who countered with his own take on the report, appeared unprepared to accept that it had vindicated the former FBI chief in any way.“Perhaps never in the history of our Country has someone been more thoroughly disgraced and excoriated than James Comey in the just released Inspector General’s Report,” the president tweeted. “He should be ashamed of himself!”In a statement, the White House charged that Comey ”disgraced himself and his office to further a personal political agenda”.“Because Comey shamefully leaked information to the press – in blatant violation of FBI policies — the nation was forced to endure the baseless politically motivated, two-year witch hunt,” the statement from press secretary Stephanie Grisham said.The IG focused on Comey’s handling of seven memos detailing interactions with Trump in the first three months of 2017. Comey kept signed originals of four memos at home after being fired, without telling the FBI.He also gave copies of several memos to personal attorneys and to Mueller’s team, the report said.“Department policy states that employees may not, without agency permission, remove records from the Department — either during or after employment,” the report said. “The FBI policies are no different.” © – AFP 2019 Aug 29th 2019, 9:30 PM https://jrnl.ie/4788229 Former FBI Director James Comey.

Children and adolescents should get one hour or more of physical activity daily.Aerobic: Most of the 60 minutes a day should be aerobic activity of at least a moderate intensity, at which a person will sweat and the heart will beat faster. The intensity should reach a vigorous level at least three days a week.Muscle-strengthening: At least three days a week, the activity should include something to strengthen muscles — lifting, pushing or pulling weight, including the body.Bone-strengthening: At least three days a week, the activity should include something to strengthen bones — skipping, hopping, jumping or running, for instance.Source: U.S. Department of Health and Human ServicesSchool is out. The sun is shining. But more and more, kids aren’t leaving the couch.The structured physical activities offered in schools — through physical education classes and, for younger kids, recess — keep kids active during the school year, said Tricia Mortell, program manager at Clark County Public Health.But when the bell rings for the final time in June, some kids are left to their own devices. And that can mean more time in front of the TV or computer, she said. Gabrielle Briggs, 7, beats Ian York, 9, to the ball during soccer drills at a mini sports camp Thursday at Marshall Park in Vancouver. National physical activity guidelines recommend children and adolescents get at least 60 minutes of exercise every day.

This complete clinical MR solution for prostate combines new DynaCAD for Prostate, an advanced clinical visualization system, and new DynaTRIM, a device for the first MR-guided intervention application. The combined solution offers a truly new imaging and intervention option for many patients with elevated and/or rising PSA levels.Over the past five years, at the following clinical sites – Fox Chase Cancer Center, Philadelphia, Penn., Radboud University of Nijmegen, The Netherlands, University of Chicago, Ill., and Desert Medical Imaging, Indian Wells, Calif. – clinicians have assisted Invivo in the evaluation of this software with its comprehensive set of advanced prostate image visualization tools for performing real-time image analysis and interventional procedure planning. “DynaCAD for Prostate provides increased operational efficiency enabling the radiologist to rapidly interpret the 3,000 images that constitute a dynamic contrast enhanced prostate MRI,” said John Feller, Chief Medical Officer at Desert Medical Imaging. The Urologist faces the dilemma of patients with elevated and/or rising PSA levels and negative TRUS-guided biopsy results. The Invivo complete clinical MR prostate solution is designed to offer an alternative to keeping patients in an uncertain state. DynaTRIM reportedly enables the physician to conduct targeted MRI-guided interventions of the prostate gland reducing the number of cores acquired during biopsy. “Especially for patients that have had several sessions of biopsies with negative results; they only need a maximum of 4 MR-guided biopsies with a detection rate of 59 percent,” according to Dr. Inge von Oort, Onocological Urologist, University of Medical Center Nijmegen, the Netherlands.

Twenty students and six adults were killed at the Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut by 20-year-old Adam Lanza.Thursday’s shooting is sure to reignite the debate in the United States on gun control, which is a charged topic in the campaign leading up to the presidential election.

The gunman reportedly shot his victims methodically and moved from one classroom to the next.Between seven and 10 people were killed and at least 20 injured, local news network KATU quoted Oregon State Police Lieutenant Bill Fugate as saying. CNN, citing local officials, said one woman was shot in the chest.U.S. President Barack Obama was briefed on the situation in Roseburg, and asked to be updated as it unfolds, a U.S. official said.The college was immediately placed on lockdown as firefighters, police and concerned parents rushed to the site. Douglas County fire Marshall Ray Shoufler said firefighters had evacuated 11 wounded people from the college, of whom two had died.He said there were “multiple patients in multiple classrooms” and a triage center was set up to evacuate the most seriously injured.Shoufler described Roseburg as a small, close-knit rural community with many locals attending the college which caters to some 3,300 students.“Most of us have relatives taking classes here,” he said. “Pretty much everybody knows everybody type scenario.“So something like this affects many, many, many people.” LATEST: Multiple casualties after shooting reported at college in Oregon: https://t.co/rm04fNexzL pic.twitter.com/TaceLJfj9d— ABC News (@ABC) October 1, 2015 Related posts:Costa Rican coastal community grieves colleague killed in US church massacre Oregon school shooting: ‘He just tried to do the right thing,’ one victim’s family says Gunman at Oregon college appeared armed for an extended siege Investigators piece together motive in mass Oregon shooting Facebook Comments 137 school shootings in America since Sandy Hook.ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY SEVEN. #oregon— Piers Morgan (@piersmorgan) October 1, 2015
