Dalhousie Engineers Help Nova Scotia Businesses Innovate

first_imgMore small and medium-sized businesses will now have direct access to Dalhousie University engineers to develop and make prototypes of new products. The Nova Scotia Product Design and Development Centre will provide Nova Scotia businesses with product research, development and prototyping services, helping to turn ideas into marketable products. “We had a very beneficial collaboration with Dalhousie University’s engineering design team,” said Colin Deacon, chief executive officer, BlueLight Analytics. “We provided them with a rough prototype design and they turned it into a customer-ready commercial product that took less time to assemble. “One year later, our checkMARC device is being used across North America and in other countries like Germany, the U.K. and Brazil.” The centre merges two Dalhousie Faculty of Engineering groups — Product Research and Design, and the Innovation in Design Lab (iDLab). The merger means the centre will reach more businesses and better co-ordinate activities. Rubber Trails and Surfaces Canada Ltd., is a small company in Upper Musquodoboit that produces products from recycled rubber. It has worked with engineers at Dalhousie on several projects, including a special curb for running tracks that has been accepted by the International Association of Athletics Federation to be used at the Olympics. “Manufacturing businesses in the Maritimes need to innovate to be far more efficient than our competitors who are closer to the larger, more affluent markets,” said Steve Benison, Rubber Trails and Surfaces Canada Ltd. Government is providing $85,000 in one-time funding to help launch the centre. “Finding ways to connect the private sector with the expertise and creativity of our universities will help make our businesses more competitive and profitable,” said Michel Samson, Minister of Economic and Rural Development and Tourism. “This centre can help our young, ambitious engineers gain valuable connections to local businesses and our small businesses reach their highest potential.” For more information about the Nova Scotia Product Design and Development Centre, visit .last_img read more

Delhi HC to hear Monday plea seeking Uniform Civil Code

first_imgNew Delhi: The Delhi High Court will on Monday hear a plea seeking formulation of a Uniform Civil Code (UCC).The court had issued notice to the Home Ministry and Law Commission on May 31 but neither has filed a response as of now.A Division Bench of then Chief Justice Rajendra Menon and Justice Brijesh Sethi had listed the matter for hearing on July 8.A public interest litigation (PIL) was filed by Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) leader and advocate Ashwini Kumar Upadhyay. Also Read – Bangla Sahib Gurudwara bans use of all types of plastic itemsIn his plea, Upadhyay sought direction to the government to set up a judicial commission or a high level expert committee to draft within three months the UCC in the spirit of Article 44 of the Constitution, while considering the best practices of all religions and sects, civil laws of developed countries and international conventions.He also sought direction to publish the draft on a government website for at least 60 days to allow for extensive public debate and feedback. Also Read – After eight years, businessman arrested for kidnap & murderThe PIL sought direction to the Law Commission to draft the UCC and direction to the government to secure gender justice, gender equality and dignity of women.In his plea, Upadhyay said: “The objective of Article 44 is to introduce a common civil code, which is essential to promote fraternity, unity and national integration. It proceeds on the assumption that there is no connection between religion and personal laws in a civilised society.”He asserted that the Constitution guaranteed freedom of conscience and of religion while divesting religion from personal laws and social relations and from laws governing inheritance, succession and marriage just as it has been done even in Muslim countries like Turkey and Egypt. “The object of Article 44 is not to encroach upon religious liberties guaranteed under Article 25,” the plea said.Upadhyay added that the several enactments, which had been made by Parliament since independence on marriage, succession, adoption and guardianship, related only to Hindus (including Buddhists, Jains and Sikhs) in the name of the Hindu Code.He argued that these enactments excluded Muslims, who were the major slice of the minority communities and who most vociferously objected to a common civil code.last_img read more

India Sri Lanka fisherfolk want to meet Jaya

An Indo-Sri Lankan team of fishermen is all set to seek a meeting with the Tamil Nadu Chief Minister, J Jayalalithaa, to resolve the long standing and irksome issue of fishing in the Palk Strait, the New Indian Express reported.S P Anthonymuthu, Advisor to the Indo-Lanka Fishermen’s Welfare Forum, told Express, that he, along with N Devadas of the Rameswaram Fishermen’s Association, will be writing to the Tamil Nadu Chief Secretary, seeking an early appointment with Jayalalithaa. “We are keen on meeting her prior to the fourth round of talks between the fishermen’s associations of the two countries. We have already finalized the names of the 10-member Indo-Lankan team comprising five persons from each country,” Anthonymuthu said. With over 70 TN “poachers” in Lankan custody now, parliament debated the issue recently. In the debate, the Tamil National Alliance (TNA) leader, R Sampanthan, called for joint Indo-Lankan naval patrolling. Amaraweera has called for a meeting of Northern fishermen, the Coast Guard and the Navy in Colombo on October 22.According to Anthonymuthu, in the last meeting with the Lankan Minister on October 8, the fishermen from the North said that it will be pointless talking to the TN fishermen because Lankans cannot accede to their demand for letting them fish for 83 days in a year and also to allow them to use banned methods of fishing like bottom trawling. The other complaint of the Lankan fishermen is that TN fishermen keep asking for more and more time to give up poaching and bottom trawling, but fail to keep their promises. However, Ponnambalam, President of the Jaffna District Federation of Rural Fishermen Associations, said that any talks with Indian fishermen or leaders will have to be preceded by a meeting with the Sri Lankan Minister of Fisheries, Mahinda Amaraweera. “We have to know the mind of the Lankan government first. And we have to first decide, amongst ourselves here, what we should say in Chennai,” he said. read more

Opinion My sister was an innocent victim wrongly taken Our family will

first_imgIT WAS A Tuesday. The 28th June 2011. Everybody was out enjoying the sun and grasping every moment of it until the infamous Irish raining weather returned.I was browsing through Galway city’s famous shop streets waiting to meet my sister but, despite numerous calls made, I failed to reach her and decided to hit the roads back home to Connemara.As I landed home, our local Garda came to the door wishing to speak to my parents. I didn’t think anything of it, possibly due to the fact that he wasn’t in uniform or in a patrol car.The next few words that came out of the Garda’s mouth made me speechless, I couldn’t grasp what he had just said – the words that my sister Delia was hit by a driver who drove 8km on the wrong side of the motorway and that she was critically injured.I looked at my father and all I could think about was how I was going to tell my mother, who had just flown over to America to visit her terminally ill brother who was dying from cancer.I hoped was it was a dreamThe long drive from Tullamore was the hardest journey I have ever endured, I didn’t know what to expect. All I hoped was that this was a dream and Delia would be OK.When I landed there, Delia was lying hooked to a ventilator with my brother and her partner on either side of her. Doctors were hopeful and informed us they would ease her off the sedation the following day and wake her up.But the following day arrived and my sister failed to wake up from the sedation. The doctors, now getting worried, administered another brain scan.They brought us into a room and told us that her brain scans had returned and shown that her brain was swelling and she needed to be brought to Beaumont Hospital urgently. When I heard the words “Beaumont Hospital,” I knew this was serious and her prospect of surviving was hanging in the balance.My mother arrived in Dublin Airport from America, rushing to be beside my sister’s bedside in Beaumont. Delia’s condition deteriorated rapidly through the day and the night. Then we were told that my sister was brain-dead and that she was gone.We felt so numb and confused and couldn’t understand how this has happened.It’s not worth the text, the speed or that one extra drinkThe doctors brought up the topic of organ donation to us, and although we were so traumatised we agreed that her kidneys to be donated as I myself suffered from a chronic kidney condition I know my sister would want to help others.Organ donation is a topic that is not discussed fully in Ireland and I do believe it’s a very important issue, – it’s not a morbid subject to discuss. Although we lost my amazing sister it has helped us so much knowing that she is a hero and has helped two other individuals here in Ireland.Since my sister passing I have joined the NGO (Non-Governmental Organisation) Irish Road Victims Association where I work as a secretary and it’s the best thing I have ever done, it helps me to get up each day and help other families who have been a victims of losing someone on our roads or who have been seriously injured.I urge every driver out there reading this – it’s not worth the text, the speed or that one extra drink for the road. My sister was an innocent victim wrongly taken, and our family will never be the same again. In our house all you hear is the sound of tears, our family chain has forever been broken.A car is only a tin, a tin that can cause so much devastation. It’s not worth risking your life or others, don’t be another victim – once you’re a victim who has lost someone to a road traffic accident, you’re a victim for life.Thank you.Further information on the Irish Road Victims Association is on or on Facebook Irish Road Victims Association or on Twitter Irish Road Victims Association @IRVAroadsafetyOpinion: It was a day like any other, until my motorbike crashed and my life changed foreverlast_img read more

Live long and prosper Redshirts less likely to die on Star Trek

first_imgStop me if you’ve heard this one. Kirk, Spock, McCoy, and Ensign Redshirt beam down to the planet’s surface. Which one of them gets vaporized? If you haven’t made a redshirt joke before, you’ve probably heard one. It’s a well-established trope that crew members wearing red uniforms tend to be killed off on Star Trek: The Original Series. A careful analysis of uniform colors, however, indicates it may actually be more dangerous to wear a gold uniform. In other news, up is down and black is white.By carefully tabulating all the instances of crew member deaths across the three seasons of the original series, one Matthew Barsalou found that redshirts did indeed contribute the largest number of casualties. There were a total of 55 deaths of starfleet personnel on the show. Of those, 24 were redshirts, 7 blue, 9 gold, and 15 unknown uniform color.So a cursory glance tells you that wearing a red shirt marks you for death. However, there are a lot of redshirts on the USS Enterprise. According to the official numbers endorsed by Paramount, there were 430 total crew members aboard the the ship, and 239 were in engineering, operations, and security. That’s 239 redshirts. There were only 55 command personnel wearing the gold uniform, and 136 wearing medical/scientific blue.Barsalou used these numbers to calculate the conditional probability of any given casualty being someone wearing a red uniform. It turns out that there is a 61.5% chance of a casualty being a redshirt. Still sound high? Remember that there are a lot of crew members wearing red. Taking into account the size of the total population, only 5.1% of the blue uniform population died on the Enterprise. For the redshirts, that number is 10%. For the gold command folks, it’s 13.4%. So it is actually more dangerous to wear a gold uniform on Star Trek than a red one.It also turns out that 18 of the 24 redshirt deaths were security officers. Being an engineer or transporter chief in a red uniform actually turns out to be very safe. So if you ever find yourself on good old NCC 1701, don’t put on the gold uniform.last_img read more

Cruise ship reaches Norway port after engine problems prompted evacuation

first_imgCruise ship reaches Norway port after engine problems prompted evacuation The ship sent an SOS message due to “engine problems in bad weather” yesterday. Five helicopters were reported to be operating this morning along with coastguard and other rescue vessels.Dramatic footage of the ordeal showed furniture and plants sliding around the lurching vessel as parts of the ceiling came down. Dozens of passengers wearing life jackets were seated around waiting to get off the vessel.“We’re still waiting for the helicopter to get out,” says Ryan Flynn who was shooting one of the videos. “This is taking very long.”“I have never seen anything so frightening,” said one of the passengers who was rescued, Janet Jacob.The area where the ship got into problems, known as Hustadvika, is notoriously difficult to navigate. The shallow section of coastline is dotted with small islands and reefs.Operated by the Norwegian firm Viking Ocean Cruises, the Viking Sky was launched in 2017 with a capacity of 930 passengers plus crew. Includes reporting by – © AFP 2019  By Cónal Thomas Updated Mar 24th 2019, 4:31 PM Cruise ship Viking Sky off the Norwegian coast Source: Frank Einar Vatne/PA ImagesA CRUISE SHIP that experienced engine trouble yesterday off the coast of Norway has reached port after hundreds of passengers were airlifted to safety.Escorted by tugboats, the Viking Sky arrived in the port of Molde at around 4.15pm (3.15pm Irish time) this afternoon, television images have shown.Police in the county of More og Romsdal received a report shortly after 2pm yesterday that the cruise ship was having technical problems. The ship sent an SOS message due to “engine problems in bad weather”, southern Norway’s rescue centre said on Twitter.“The boat only has one working engine and the winds are rather strong. Therefore we would prefer to have the passengers on land rather than on board the ship,” a police chief said.“It is dangerous to encounter engine problems in these waters which hide numerous reefs.”The captain had sent out a Mayday prompting authorities to launch the airlift in difficult conditions rather than run the risk of leaving people on board.Nearly a third of its 1,373 passengers and crew had already been airlifted off the ship.Some 460 people on the ship had been taken off by five helicopters before the airlift was halted.Police said 17 people had been taken to hospital.

Google says Chrome isnt killing adblocking extensions

first_img Share your voice Part of the debate concerns rules that ad blockers use to decide what to screen and what to display. Stephen Shankland/CNET Google isn’t trying to kill ad blockers. That’s the message in a pair of Google blog posts published Wednesday in response to criticism of the search giant’s plan to improve extensions in its Chrome web browser.”We are not preventing the development of ad blockers or stopping users from blocking ads,” said Devlin Cronin in a post on the Google Security Blog. “Instead, we want to help developers, including content blockers, write extensions in a way that protects users’ privacy.”Google in October revealed a broad plan to improve Chrome extensions. In January, developers noticed that part of the plan, called Manifest v3, could hurt ad blockers and other extensions that modify website content. Manifest v3 is designed to improve Chrome extensions’ performance, privacy and security, but one part of that change limits how extensions can modify websites according to a long list of rules — blocking content from internet addresses that supply ads, for example. Some developers have said this will hobble their ad-blocking and privacy extensions.”There’s been a lot of confusion and misconception around both the motivations and implications of this change, including speculation that these changes were designed to prevent or weaken ad blockers,” said Google’s Simeon Vincent in a post on the Chromium Blog. “This is absolutely not the goal.”Ghostery threatens an antitrust lawsuitSome extension authors aren’t mollified, though.Ghostery, maker of a tracker-blocking extension, still doesn’t like the new, somewhat higher limits and raised the prospect of legal action against Google.”This would basically mean that Google is destroying ad blocking and privacy protection as we know it,” Ghostery President Jeremy Tillman said in a statement. “Whether Google does this to protect their advertising business or simply to force its own rules on everyone else, it would be nothing less than another case of misuse of its market-dominating position. If this comes true, we will consider filing an antitrust complaint.”However, it’s not clear how the move would protect Google’s ad business. Even with a sharply curtailed list of filters, Google’s ads could still be blocked, and given its power in online advertising, it’s likely an ad blocker would indeed tackle Google’s ads. Part of the debate concerns rules that ad blockers use to decide what to screen and what to display. Chrome’s current design permits lots of those rules, so for example an ad blocker can check to see if elements on a website are coming from a very long list of ad-related internet addresses. The new approach had a proposed limit to those rules, a maximum of 30,000, which could’ve hobbled ad blockers and other extensions using those lists. Google didn’t respond to a request for comment.Google lifts extension limits someOn Wednesday, Google said that it’s raising the limit to a global maximum of 150,000 rules. Last month, the search giant also said it plans an exemption for enterprise users.Google stressed in its posts that Manifest v3 is still in development and that it’ll work with developers. However, the company feels it’s making the “right choice to enable users to limit the sensitive data they share with third parties while giving them the ability to curate their own browsing experience.”John Wilander, a programmer behind the Intelligent Tracking Prevention technology in Apple’s Safari, expressed some sympathy for Google’s stance. “The privacy and security threats of extensions are real. The perf hit of intercepting all network requests, too,” Wilander tweeted. But he also spotlighted the importance of Google’s change given that “the browser itself offers no modern privacy protections,” he tweeted.Those who question Google’s motives, though, also need to look at who’s behind the Chrome extensions changes, said Malte Ubl, technical leader for Google’s AMP web publishing technology.”Given that the literal inventors of usable security are driving these decisions, I typically err on not second-guessing their decisions without an army of studies and data,” Ubl tweeted. “Five years ago both Android and iOS still thought all apps should have access to your address book by default. We as an industry have since learned that wasn’t a good trade-off…It isn’t great to give extensions the power to observe and change all web traffic,” he added.Opportunity for rival browsersThe Chrome change has turned into an opportunity for rival browsers also using Google’s open-source Chromium software foundation to try to stand out. Brave, Vivaldi and Opera will keep the old browser extensions interface, the companies told ZDNet.Microsoft, whose Edge browser is the newest member of Google’s Chromium community, said it’s still evaluating its options.”We are in ongoing discussions with a number of popular extension developers and with the Chromium community to understand both the technical merits and the impact to developers and customers of the proposed changes,” said Kyle Pflug, Edge project manager, in a Reddit forum post Thursday.Originally published June 12.Update, June 12: Adds more details on the planned changes to Chrome extensions.

4th rice grower Bangladesh now major importer

first_imgTrucks carrying rice from India waiting to be unloaded at Hili border of Dinajpur. Photo: Prothom AloFacing another food crisis after a decade, the Bangladesh government is trying to import rice from major exporting countries.Bangladesh, the 4th rice-growing country globally, has thus turned into a major importer, though the government did not import rice over the past four years.In fact, the government measures confirm, rice import has now been the only way out for the government in order to keep the prices of foods, especially the staple, in the local market stable.The rice crisis emerged this year after the crops in the haor areas (marshlands) were damaged by heavy rainfall and floods.Apart from official procurement of rice from international market, the government has reduced import tariff by 18 per cent as an incentive for the private sector importers.Still, market data suggest, the efforts made over the past two months have failed to resolve the rice crisis.In two months, 57,000 tonnes of rice were procured from the international market. The government’s silos, that have a capacity of storing 1.7 million tonnes, have only 2,73,000 tonnes of rice, government data show.The Directorate of Food has not yet started selling rice in the open market, a programme to distribute food at cheaper rate. Other social safety programmes have been cut.The food ministry has recently requested the National Board of Revenue to cut import tariff by 5 per cent more in the second phase. As a result, the import price of rice will drop by Tk 1.5 per kg.Following the latest move, the traders suddenly halted rice import to benefit more although the government is yet to take the final decision.Unloading of imported rice at land ports has also halted.On condition of anonymity, officials close to the government said the food ministry delayed in taking the decision to import rice when prices went up in May and June.NBR delayed till June to take its decision to reduce import tariff. Taking opportunity of the tariff cut, traders started importing rice. Unloading of rice at Chittagong and Mongla ports was delayed due to heavy rains in Chittagong and Khulna and so there was no impact of rice prices on the market.Speaking to Prothom Alo, former adviser to the caretaker government MM Shawkat Ali said the government has to pay some price if it delays in taking a decision to tackle the crisis. A major crisis may arise out of a minor food crisis due to one natural calamity after another, he said, adding the food ministry has to be made accountable to tackle such crises.According to the food ministry, the government signed agreements with Vietnam, Thailand and Cambodia to import 3 million tonnes of rice. Discussions are also on to import rice from Myanmar and India.A contract has been signed with Vietnam to import 2,50,000 metric tonnes of rice.In a move to import 4,00,000 metric tonnes of rice, the government made a contract to import 3,00,000 metric tonnes of rice through an international tender. Another tender process is about to finish to import 1,00,000 metric tonnes of rice.Despite so many Memorandums of Understanding (MoUs) and contracts, only 53,000 tonnes of rice imported from Vietnam under the state to state agreement were unloaded at the port in two months. Some 4,700 tonnes of rice through the international tender were unloaded at the port during the same period. As a small amount of rice is imported, it has no impact on the rice market.According to the food ministry, there is no crisis of rice. The market is under control. The price will fall if the import increases in the days ahead. The government made many agreements to import rice although it earlier claimed that it has a deficit of only 1 million tonnes of rice.Food minister Quamrul Islam has said, “We are keeping all avenues open so that there will be no crisis in future.”Rice import under the private sector increased following the decision to cut import tariff from 28 per cent to 10 per cent in June. A number of importers from Dhaka, Khatunganj of Chittagong and Noapara of Jessore, started the import process.Importers from Chittagong imported rice from Myanmar and Thailand and the traders the other two other areas have also started importing rice.           Crisis after 10 yrs A similar crisis emerged in 2007-08. Then the price of rice went up to Tk 40 per kilogram as 2.5 million tonnes of rice was damaged by floods. A major cyclone, Sidr, also dealt a blow to the national economy.This time, the price of coarse rice rose to Tk 48 to 50 per kilogram. But it is now being sold at Tk 43 to Tk 45 as import taxes have been relaxed recently while fine rice is being sold at Tk 52 to Tk 60, according to the state-run Trading Corporation of Bangladesh (TCB).The price of coarse rice increased 38 per cent in just one year.According to the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA), some 20, 47, 000 metric tonnes of rice were imported in 2007 which is the highest in the country’s rice import history. In 2008, it decreased to 7,32,000 tonnes. Only 70,000 tonnes rice was imported in 2016. However, as much as 7,00,000 tonnes of rice have already been imported during the first half of 2017.Some 3,45,00,000 tonnes of rice were produced in 2016-17 and it may decrease to 3,41,00,000 tonnes in the current fiscal.Former director general of the Bangladesh Institute of Development Studies, M Shahabuddin, told Prothom Alo that the government delayed in deciding how much rice would have to be imported after crop damage in the haor floods.The food ministry must increase its efficiency in view of possible rice crises in future, he added.*This report, originally published in Prothom Alo print edition, has been rewritten in English by Rabiul Islam and Imam Hossain.last_img read more

Vienna buries remains of Nazi victims

first_imgAssociated PressVIENNA (AP) – They were starved, tortured, and killed because they were considered inferior to the Aryan ideal set by Adolf Hitler. Then their organs were put in jars and displayed for research by the doctors accused of causing their deaths under the Nazis.Shutting the books on one of Vienna’s darkest chapters, black-clad workers on Wednesday placed a small metal urn into the ground at the city’s Central Cemetery. It contained what municipal officials say were the last known unburied remains of victims “treated to death” on the Austrian capital’s psychiatric wards during the Hitler era. “They were neglected, undernourished, exposed to infectious disease and killed at the very place that they should have been treated, healed and taken care of,” declared Austrian President Heinz Fischer.Because Austria was slow to recognize that it was more a Nazi ally than a victim, some of the doctors suspected of complicity in the killings worked as renowned researchers into the 1970s based in part on their activities during the Hitler era.Typical was Dr. Hans Bertha, the head of Am Steinhof, Vienna’s main wartime psychiatric hospital. Although most of the 3,500 adults and children were found “worthless” and killed by the Nazis under his tenure, he went on to become a professor of medicine in the southern Austrian city of Graz after the war, dying in a 1961 car accident without ever being brought to justice.While some medical personnel were subsequently implicated, few were prosecuted _ formally because of age-related health reasons.Among those escaping legal action was Heinrich Gross. Basing his research on the preserved brains of the children killed at the hospital, he published nearly a dozen articles, received a high state award and served as an expert witness in hundreds of court cases up to the mid-1980s. Sponsored Stories Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates The Nazis called them “unworthy lives” _ those deemed too sick, weak or handicapped to fit the Fuehrer’s image of the master race.More than 70,000 were killed, gassed to death or otherwise murdered between 1939 and 1941. Public protests stopped the wholesale massacres then, but thousands more of those deemed inferior lost their lives at the hands of sadistic doctors and nurses until the end of the war.Of those, about 3,500 died in Vienna institutions, among them nearly 800 children and juveniles. Thousands of brains, uteruses with fetuses and other organs and parts were then preserved in jars and used for medical research until 1978, when they were put under lock and key amid growing Austrian sensitivity to the crimes committed while the country was Hitler’s ally.Hundreds of the children’s remains were already buried 10 years ago, but many adult specimens were kept available until recently for experts trying to trace their histories and identify them. They were successful in linking remains to names in 61 cases. Sixty sets of identified victims were buried along with unidentified ones in a nonpublic ceremony late last month.Under a clear blue sky, the 61st was put to rest Wednesday, accompanied by the mournful music of a string quartet, speeches by dignitaries and the cawing of a lone crow perched on a beech tree near the grave.

Accused in the deaths of some of those children, Gross’ trial was broken off in 2000 after an expert witness said he suffered from dementia _ a finding called into question a few weeks later when he lucidly answered questions put to him by journalists. He died five years later.Vienna Mayor Michael Haeupl said he was angered that many perpetrators escaped punishment.“It makes me furious to know that these criminals could work, practice and conduct research after the end of the war,” he told the graveside gathering of about 100 _ a mixture of Austrian and German officials and elderly survivors of the psychiatric wards with a story to tell.The son of an alcoholic father, Friedrich Zawrel, 83, said he was ordered ostracized at school by the Nazis because of his “asocial origins.” Kicked out of the Hitler Youth, he was brought to Am Steinhof in 1940 at age 11 after being accused of homosexuality.Zawrel now walks slowly with the aid of a cane. But the years have not dimmed his memory of his ordeal: torture, humiliation, and bouts of solitary confinement for four years.He spoke of vomit-inducing injections, of orderlies forcing his head under water until he blacked out and the “Wrap Treatment” _ being bound in two sheets dripping with cold water and then two dry sheets, after which he was left until his body warmth dried the sheets.
