June 3, 2021 Find out more Yaser Murtaja was wounded by a shot fired by Israeli soldiers while he was covering the “Great Return March” demonstrations by Palestinians at the border, and died of his injuries during the night. When shot, he was wearing a vest with the inscription “Press” that clearly identified him as a journalist. “We condemn the disproportionate reaction by Israeli forces, who killed or wounded several civilians including journalists,” RSF secretary-general Christophe Deloire said. “We urge the Israeli government to adhere strictly to UN Security Council Resolution 2222 on protecting journalists, adopted in 2015, and we call for an independent investigation leading to the conviction of those responsible for this crime against press freedom.” At least six journalists were injured yesterday, mostly by shots or teargas. One of them, Al Aqsa cameraman Khalil Abu Adhra, is in a serious condition. Many other journalists were injured in similar circumstances while covering the “Land Day” anniversary demonstrations a week ago. Israeli soldiers have killed a total of 29 Palestinians in the past two weeks in the course of trying to disperse demonstrations. Emotions are running high in Gaza and among the foreign reporters who often worked with Murtaja in Gaza.

PUB: 02/03/2021 11:46 AM/DISC: 02/03/2021 11:46 AM DUBLIN–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Feb 3, 2021– The “Europe Medical Device Adhesives Market Forecast to 2027 – COVID-19 Impact and Regional Analysis by Resin Type; Device Type; and Country” report has been added to’s offering. The Europe medical device adhesive market is expected to reach US$ 2,937.41 million by 2027 from US$ 1,723.16 million in 2019. The market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 7.0% during 2020-2027. Increasing usage of medical device adhesive and technological advancements in medical device adhesive are driving the market in the region. Additionally, rapid surge in number of minimally invasive procedures and increasing adoption of eco-friendly and biocompatible solutions are likely to fuel the growth of the medical device adhesive market during the forecast period. However, factors such as complications associated with the medical device adhesive are likely to restrain the growth of the market. Medical device adhesive are the adhesives that are manufactured as per the medical grades. They are mainly used for assembling medical devices. They also help to optimize assembly speeds to enable better processing, greater output as well as lowering the associated costs. During recent years, along with the technological developments in medical device industry, the demand for medical device adhesive has also increased significantly. The minimal invasive procedures are the preferred methods that are being adopted over the traditional open surgery methods, such as endoscopy surgeries, endoscopic diagnostic procedures, and robotic-assisted surgeries. The endoscopic surgical process is widely followed for heart, lungs, stomach, and kidney related operations. The post-procedure wounds are sealed with surgical sutures, surgical staplers, sealants, or relevant adhesive tapes. However, due to technological advancements in wound closure methods, medical device adhesives are among the preferred products. For instance, an inguinal hernia is among the most common disorder observed among men and women, with surgical procedure being the only possible treatment. The primary type of operational procedures is open surgery and laparoscopy. According to OECD, there have been about 106,682 laparoscopic repairs recorded for inguinal hernia in Germany in 2017. The wound/cut sealing operations for these procedures usually involve medical sealants; thereby, offering a significant opportunity for market players during the forecast period. The European economy is severely affected due to the exponential growth of COVID-19 cases in the region. Various companies have undergone severe losses in the last quarter of 2019 and have negatively impacted the year 2020. Thus, the European companies are partnering with others to come up with solutions to deal with the pandemic. For instance, Permabond’s production facilities in Milan, are allowed to remain fully operational under the life-sustaining business due to its adhesives for medical devices and ventilators at this time, but also due to the many other essential industries that rely on the continuation of supply of its adhesives for their production and operations. The impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the regional medical device adhesive market is moderate. The acrylic segment held the largest share of the market in 2019, and is anticipated to register the highest CAGR in the market during the forecast period. Growth of this segment is attributed to the as evident use of acrylic solutions in wide range of applications such as dental, assembly of medical devices and equipment. Furthermore, medical grade acrylic is also ideal for use in interior and well as exterior medical applications that include skin tissue adhesives. Pinterest Facebook WhatsApp Pinterest 1.

You know, the film adaptation of Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine’s classic tuner starring Meryl Streep as the Witch, the role originated by Bernadette Peters on Broadway in 1987. And then Sondheim goes and tells the LA Times something that blows our minds. Streep taking on the role was “ordained because the lady who played the Witch on the stage and the lady who’s playing the Witch in the movie, their last names are anagrams of each other.” Streep, Peters—in all our endless column inches how could we not have noticed that before?

first_img1 Italian giants Roma are plotting a move for Arsenal target Oguzhan Ozyakup, according to Turkish reports.The 24-year-old is at the centre of much transfer speculation following an excellent season in which he helped Besiktas secure the Turkish Super League title.Ozyakup, a former Arsenal trainee, has been linked with a return to the Emirates this summer but the Gunners face stiff competition for his signature.Roma are the latest team to be linked with the midfielder, who made 38 appearances in all competitions last season.Roma sporting director Monchi is reportedly keen on a deal for the 24-year-old and is ready to launch a £13m bid to try and lure him to the Italian capital.Arsenal remain interested but must act quickly if they want to snap up one of Europe’s most promising midfielders.

Why 90,000 at Wembley Proves Football Isn’t Just A Man’s Game

first_imgIt’s been a huge year for women’s football, particularly in the UK. Phil Neville’s Lionesses built a whole new audience, while members of the US team even took on the President!It’s been a staggering rise as Super League teams continue to see attendances rise, while the game between England and Germany at Wembley sold out. It’s undoubtedly a landmark year, and Wembley will make many sit up and take note of the women’s game, conclusively proving it’s far from being a man’s game.The likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Manchester United are investing more and more in their women’s team, and that will see more commercial activity taking place.More female orientated industries will now have the opportunity to target an ever-increasing audience, just as the likes of gambling, motoring and beer has in the men’s game.That could see the likes of online bingo, cosmetics and fashion begin to make its way into the game. Bingo is particularly an interesting one. Online gambling is a huge part of sponsorship income in the men’s game, and with the likes of Moon Bingo now hugely popular among British players, a foray into sports sponsorship could be on the horizon.Liverpool linked with Avon just a few years ago, which was considered a landmark deal, and it is expected that more and more partners will begin to take note of the women’s game.It’s been a long time coming, but what that will do is then bring more money into the game, offer better wages, offer the opportunity for more clubs to go full time and in turn improve the standard of the game.That will help inspire generations and a whole new lifecycle will begin as the game continues to improve.A full Wembley, 24,000 at Stamford Bridge to watch Chelsea play Spurs will inspire a new breed of players, particularly as the likes of Beth England, Lucy Bronze and Steph Houghton become more and more of a household name.It will be interesting to see how the game in Britain can kick on from the World Cup. It’s the perfect start in filling Wembley, but with another major tournament not due until 2021, when the European Championships are hosted in England, the game needs to keep up the momentum.Do that and 2021 could be even more groundbreaking. 2019 has seen the women’s game well and truly stand up in its own right. The Super League, clubs and the FA now need to put the infrastructure in terms of commercial sponsorships and investment in place to take it to the next level.
