AECL victory over Nordion pushes down nuclear medicine companys stock

AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email AECL victory over Nordion pushes down nuclear medicine company’s stock by Craig Wong, The Canadian Press Posted Sep 10, 2012 5:52 pm MDT OTTAWA – Shares of Nordion Inc. (TSX:NDN) plunged more than 35 per cent on Monday after the Ottawa-based nuclear medicine company lost a long-standing battle with Atomic Energy of Canada Ltd.An arbitrator ruled against Nordion by a two-to-one margin, ending the three-year fight over the Maple nuclear reactors that AECL decided to mothball, citing a design flaw that Nordion argued was manageable.“It was our clear objective to protect our shareholders’ investment in the Maple facilities,” Nordion chief executive Steve West said in a statement that noted the company may also be responsible for a portion of AECL’s costs as a result of the decision.“We intend to fully examine the implications of the decision and assess options for our future courses of action regarding this matter and long-term supply.”Following the decision, Nordion said it would suspend its quarterly dividend and stop buying back shares on its stock buyback plan.Nordion also cautioned that while the arbitration decision does not prevent its ongoing lawsuit against AECL under its Isotope Production Facilities Agreement, a majority on the arbitration panel found there was no breach of contract.As a result, the IPFA court claim may be substantially less than the $1.6 billion Nordion is currently claiming, the company said.Nordion shares closed down $3.82 at $6.64 on the Toronto Stock Exchange after trading as low as $5.38.RBC Capital Markets analyst Douglas Miehm cut his rating on Nordion’s stock to underperform from outperform and slashed his price target to $8 from $11.“The arbitrators decision was surprising, but the full terms of the 2006 agreement were never fully disclosed so it was always difficult to be completely confident in Nordion’s case,” Miehm wrote in a report to clients.“While we were anticipating a ruling in favour of Nordion, the arbitrators determined that the specific terms of the agreement (unknown to public) precluded the claims against AECL.”The twin Maple reactors had been planned as major source of isotopes used in medical imaging, once a highly profitable global business for Nordion.However, the project was over budget and years behind schedule when AECL decided to pull the plug on the Maple reactors before they went into service.Nordion problems got worse when AECL’s old NRU reactor was shut down for extensive repairs, cutting off the company’s main source of nuclear isotopes.“AECL will be reviewing and analysing carefully all aspects of the decision to ensure a thorough understanding of the implications. Both AECL and Nordion are bound by confidentiality obligations relating to the arbitration process, including the details of the decision,” AECL said Monday.Tamra Benjamin, Nordion’s vice-president for public and government relations, said the arbitration decision leaves Nordion open to pursue its ongoing lawsuit against AECL in the Ontario courts.“Our strategic priority continues to be optimizing the medical isotopes business,” Benjamin said.“We continue to plan to evaluate alternate sources of long-term supply and are now able to pursue those sources knowing that such isotope capacity will not be coming on line from the Maple reactors.”Nordion is Canada’s seller of medical isotopes that are used in cancer tests and treatment as well as medical imaging.The company’s main supplier of medical isotopes, Atomic Energy of Canada Limited’s National Research Universal reactor in Chalk River, Ont. returned to service in May after a planned 30-day maintenance shutdown.There was a global shortage of medical isotopes when the federally-owned NRU reactor was shut down in 2009 because of a leak that took more than a year to repair.The shortage caused a political furor and raised concerns by doctors and other health professionals about the availability of medical tests for Canadians.For the three months ended July 31, Nordion reported a profit of $12.3 million or 20 cents per share on $67.1 million in revenue. That was up from a loss of $4.1 million or six cents per share on $66.8 million in revenue a year earlier.In August, Nordion announced an internal investigation into potential improper payments or other possible violations of anti-corruption laws in the U.S. and Canada focused on a foreign supplier and “related parties.” read more

Nine Managerial Decisions That Helped Decide Game 2 Of The NLCS

Baseball is, fundamentally, a game of probabilities — measurable probabilities. We can estimate the likelihood that a player will get a hit based on all kinds of factors — whether he bats right- or left-handed, whether the pitcher is right- or left-handed, the size of the ballpark, the quality of the defense on the field, and many other variables. Hell, we can do even better than that. Using the prevailing run-scoring environment of any era, we can determine the average number of runs likely to score using any permutation of runners on base, and outs.All of this information has made playing armchair manager even more enticing for fans. But those seeking instant justice with their run expectancy matrices have been disappointed this postseason. The 2014 playoffs have been wild, defying logic at every turn, with game after game delivering spectacularly implausible (and spectacularly exciting!) happenings. Mike Matheny leaves Matt Adams in the fifth spot against Clayton Kershaw even though Adams is as threatening as a sedated tortoise against southpaws … and Big City blasts one of the biggest homers of the postseason. Ned Yost chooses the worst of about seven options with the game on the line in the sixth inning of the wild-card game … and lives to tell about it, thanks largely to a power surge that’s propelled a Kansas City Royals team that wasn’t known for its home runs to an improbable 6-0 mark in the playoffs.The St. Louis Cardinals’ win over the San Francisco Giants in Game 2 of the NLCS came in one of the wildest games yet, a nerve-jangling joyride that featured gripping action and also lots of head-scratching decisions by both managers. A few of those decisions blew up in the faces of Bruce Bochy and Matheny. But many more worked out perfectly, reminding us of one immutable fact about playoff baseball, or really any baseball: Anything can happen in a short amount of time, even events that turn numbers inside out.Let’s run through Sunday night’s madness, looking at nine of the game’s biggest junctures, what each manager should have done based on the math, and what actually happened:SITUATION: Bottom of the fourth, runners on first and second, nobody out, Yadier Molina at bat, Cardinals lead 1-0. Should the Cards bunt?DECISION: Molina lays down a bunt, sacrificing the runners to second and third.THE MATH SAYS: All things equal, he shouldn’t have bunted. Tom Tango’s run expectancy matrix shows that a team would be expected to score an average of 1.48 runs with runners on first and second and nobody out, vs. 1.38 runs with runners on second and third and one out. (The relevant box to look at is the one labeled 1969-1992, because 2014 offensive levels are roughly in line with that period.1Baseball Prospectus does offer a run expectancy chart specifically for 2014, though single-year charts can occasionally produce funky results.) And this assumes that Molina was guaranteed to lay down a successful sacrifice, when, of course, there was no guarantee that he would. Then again, we can turn this around and note that Molina might’ve been playing hurt (he would leave the game after injuring his oblique in his next at-bat), so maybe he bunted on his own accord. All things considered, this was a fairly minor tactical error, if that.RESULT: After the sacrifice was successful, Bochy ordered an intentional walk of Kolten Wong. Randal Grichuk then came through with an RBI single. But with pitcher Lance Lynn up next (more on that in a second), the inning bogged down and St. Louis managed just one run.SITUATION: Bottom of the fourth, bases loaded, one out, Lynn due up to hit. Should the Cardinals pinch-hit and lose Lynn, or keep the starter in the game?DECISION: Now up 2-0, Matheny declines to pinch-hit for his starting pitcher.THE MATH SAYS: This was more of a judgment call. Lynn was pitching well, and this year he got better as games went on. Per Baseball-Reference.com, opposing hitters batted .262/.303/.404 in their first crack at Lynn during 2014 games, .226/.319/.339 their second time up, and .231/.310/.332 their third time. Still, the Cardinals had a chance to break the game open in this spot and shouldn’t have worried about a substitution. St. Louis has a deep bullpen with a day off Monday.RESULT: Lynn flied out (not deep enough to drive in a run), leaving the inning up to Matt Carpenter.SITUATION: Bottom of the fourth, bases loaded, two outs, Carpenter up, Giants starter Jake Peavy still pitching. Should he stay in the game?DECISION: Despite having one of the most effective lefty specialists in baseball (Javier Lopez) at his disposal, Bochy leaves Peavy in to pitch to Carpenter, with the game more or less on the line.THE MATH SAYS: Lopez was warmed up and the better pitcher for the moment. Left-handed hitters batted just .194/.248/.290 against the left-handed Lopez this season, and just .210/.290/.300 for the duration of Lopez’s 12-year career. Peavy, a right-hander, has splits that are significantly worse against left-handed batters. Moreover, Peavy would be facing the seventh hitter of a high-stress inning, increasing his likelihood of fatigue and lowering his likelihood of success. He was also due up fourth in the top of the fifth.RESULT: Carpenter flied out weakly to center. No damage done.SITUATION: Top of the sixth, runner on second, two outs, Hunter Pence up, Cardinals lead 2-1. Who should pitch?DECISION: Matheny leaves Lynn in to pitch to Pence.THE MATH SAYS: This was also a judgment call. You’ve got those numbers in Lynn’s favor as a pitcher who often fares better as he gets deeper into games. The only reason the Giants had a runner on second is because, after Lynn fanned the first two batters of the inning, Pablo Sandoval hit a dying quail that landed just fair and bounced into the seats down the left-field line for a ground-rule double. Meanwhile, the Giants had a righty-on-righty matchup with Pence at the plate, and no pitch-count issues or obvious signs of fatigue for Lynn. You can argue that Matheny erred by not trying to step on the Giants’ necks in the fourth by pinch-hitting for his pitcher. But by this point, leaving Lynn in was a defensible move.RESULT: Pence lines a single to center, scoring the tying run.SITUATION: Bottom of the seventh, nobody on, one out, Cardinals’ pitcher’s spot due up. Which Giant should pitch to the Cardinals’ pinch-hitter?DECISION: Bochy sticks with right-handed reliever Jean Machi to pitch to lefty-swinging Cardinals rookie Oscar Taveras.THE MATH SAYS: This was a scream at your TV moment even before the result. Lopez the lefty-killer was warmed up here, too, and would’ve been a nightmarish matchup for Taveras, a gifted prospect who’s a free swinger and has a minor-league track record of hitting righties much better than lefties. Also, the next two batters due for the Cardinals were Carpenter (whom Matheny was certainly going to leave in the game) and Jon Jay (not quite a lock to stay in the game but likely to do so). Even if Bochy brought Lopez in and Matheny countered by subbing for Taveras, Bochy would’ve knocked the Cardinals’ most dangerous pinch-hitter out of the game without Taveras ever getting to bat. Lopez then would’ve faced a weak right-handed hitter like Peter Bourjos or Pete Kozma before the next two left-handed batters came up. Machi’s not a bad pitcher, but there was no good reason to leave him in to face Taveras, even after acknowledging the rookie’s struggles this season.RESULT:Your browser does not support iframes.… and then Bochy brought in Lopez to face Carpenter and Jay anyway.SITUATION: Bottom of the eighth, nobody on, one out, the Cardinals’ Adams due up. Who should pitch to him?DECISION: Bochy sticks with rookie right-hander Hunter Strickland to face Adams.THE MATH SAYS: Strickland wasn’t ideal. This was partly a math issue, but even more so a scouting issue. Although Strickland throws a fastball that can touch triple digits, he’d also been a gopher ball machine this postseason, serving up three home runs to three left-handed hitters in three innings last series against the Nats.2One of those three bombs came from Asdrubal Cabrera, who’s a switch-hitter who batted lefty against Strickland. Granted, the next two batters due up for St. Louis were right-handed hitters. And Bochy had already used Jeremy Affeldt and Lopez, his two big lefty arms out of the pen. But Strickland had shown last round that lefties can smash his straight heat, and Adams certainly had the ability to do the same. Lights-out swingman Yusmeiro Petit, closer Santiago Casilla3It should be noted that most managers would be reluctant to break from closer orthodoxy to the point that they’d summon their closer with one out in the eighth, on the road, with nobody on base and a tie game. … the Giants had multiple pitchers whom you’d have trusted more than Strickland in this spot.RESULT:Your browser does not support iframes.SITUATION: Cardinals lead 4-3 going into the top of the ninth. Should Matheny make defensive substitutions?DECISION: Matheny decides not to replace Jay in center field with Bourjos.THE MATH SAYS: Bourjos is an all-world defender and a big defensive upgrade over Jay. From Bill Buckner to Nelson Cruz, we’ve seen all too painfully what can happen when managers get lazy and don’t pull bad glove men out of the game in big spots. Matheny has to bring Bourjos into the game in this spot. Otherwise, why bother carrying the guy on your playoff roster? Given the simplicity of the move involved, this was one of the worst decisions by either manager in a game full of puzzlers.RESULT: The Giants’ Andrew Susac lines a one-out single to center, starting a rally that leads to the Giants scoring the tying run. Bourjos would’ve had a tough play to catch Susac’s liner. But he almost certainly would’ve taken a better stab at it than Jay did, as the starting center fielder took a couple of tentative steps in, then just let the ball bounce in front of him for a hit.SITUATION: 4-4 tie, top of the ninth, bases loaded, two outs, Sandoval up. Who should pitch to him?DECISION: Matheny pulls his struggling closer Trevor Rosenthal after two singles, two walks and one costly wild pitch allow the Giants to tie the game and load the bases in pursuit of the go-ahead run. In place of Rosenthal, Matheny summons right-hander Seth Maness.THE MATH SAYS: Maness does have more experience, both as a reliever and in general, than the man who was warming up alongside him in the ninth, rookie starter/swingman Marco Gonzales. Still, Gonzales had recent experience pitching in big relief spots, having posted 4.1 shutout innings of relief between the NLDS against the Los Angeles Dodgers and Game 1 of the NLCS against the Giants. More importantly, Sandoval is a much better hitter against righties (.317/.363/.461 this year, .304/.357/.493 for his career) than he is against lefties (.199/.244/.319 this year, .270/.317/.391 for his career). By the numbers, Gonzales was the right call, and the decision had a chance to decide the Cardinals’ entire season, given the circumstances.RESULT: Sandoval grounded right back to Maness, ending the inning and dousing the threat. Matheny made the wrong call, and Maness saved the season anyway.SITUATION: 4-4 tie, bottom of the ninth, Cardinals’ hitters No. 7, 8 and 9 due up. Who should come out of the Giants’ bullpen?DECISION: Bochy brings former closer/erratic setup man Sergio Romo into the game.THE MATH SAYS: Casilla and Petit, by the numbers, were both better options to enter the game than was Romo. Then again, whoever was coming in for the bottom of the ninth did have the bottom of the order coming up, and you can make a case for preserving Casilla for tougher competition and having Petit available to serve as a multi-inning-shutdown guy later, the way Bochy did when he rode Petit for six shutout innings in the Giants’ 18-inning win over Washington in Game 2 of the NLDS. Even with those other factors on the table, the best practice for bullpen use that late in the game should be to make sure a team uses its best guys, instead of trying to get cute with lesser pitchers. Hold Romo back as something closer to a last resort and hope the game never even gets to him while riding more reliable options like Casilla and Petit in the here and now.RESULT: Walkoff city.Your browser does not support iframes.Nine different decisions, all of which could have (and in most cases should have) been handled differently based on the probabilities at hand. Yet in the end, both managers got away with multiple suboptimal decisions. The game wasn’t decided by tactics, but it was still a thriller that came down to four homegrown left-handed hitters going yard for the Cardinals in the same game. Those four blasts mean that the Cards have launched one homer for every 16.8 at-bats this postseason, the third-best home-run rate of any playoff team in history. This for a club that ranked last in the National League in long balls during the regular season.As Yankees broadcaster John Sterling has long reminded us, you can’t predict baseball. That’s what makes the game so maddening. And so delightful.CORRECTION (Oct. 13, 2:26 p.m.): An earlier version of this article misstated that Matt Adams hit cleanup when he faced Clayton Kershaw during the fourth game of the National League Division Series. He hit fifth in the lineup. read more

Mexicans dig through collapsed buildings as quake kills at least 230

first_imgMEXICO CITY — The wiggling fingers of a young girl trapped in the rubble of her collapsed school in Mexico City raised hopes among hundreds of rescuers working furiously Wednesday to try to free her — a drama that played out at dozens of buildings toppled by the powerful earthquake that killed at least 230 people.But it was the rescue operation at the Enrique Rebsamen school, where 25 people including 21 children perished, that was seen as emblematic of Mexicans’ rush to save survivors before time runs out.Helmeted workers spotted the girl buried in the debris early Wednesday and shouted to her to move her hand if she could hear. She did, and a rescue dog was sent inside to confirm she was alive.Hours later the crews were still laboring to free her, as images of the rescue effort were broadcast on TV screens nationwide. Workers in neon vests and helmets used ropes, pry-bars and other tools, frequently calling on the anxious parents and others gathered around to be silent while they listened for any other voices from beneath the school.At one point, the workers lowered a sensitive microphone inside the rubble to scan for any noise or movement. A rescuer said they thought they had located someone, but it wasn’t clear who.last_img read more

What To Do In The Event Of A Tsunami Warning On The

first_imgBut, not all of the residents in the Kenai Peninsula are accustomed to regular drills and tsunami threats. Here are some things to know; a tsunami watch means a tsunami is possible and you should be prepared; a tsunami warning is issued when a tsunami is imminent and you should move to high ground immediately. Appropriate actions to be taken by local officials may include the evacuation of low-lying coastal areas, and warnings may be updated, adjusted geographically, downgraded, or canceled. To provide the earliest possible alert. After a few intense hours, the tsunami warning was canceled, allowing people to return home from shelters. There were no immediate reports of damage, not even on Kodiak Island, the closest land to the epicenter of the magnitude 8.0 quake that struck at 12:32 a.m. Nelson: “Kenai Peninsula tsunami risks are our coastal communities. On the Eastern side of the Peninsula it’s Seward, and Resurrection Bay. On the South side it’s Homer and Kachemak Bay communities.” According to Nelson, one of the big things that folks need to understand about tsunami warnings is that all areas North of Anchor Point in the Central Peninsula typically do have tsunami potential. Some Alaskans are accustomed to tsunami threats and to regular drills, the early morning alert that made cellphone alarms go off still created some fretful moments. The phone message read: “Emergency Alert. Tsunami danger on the coast. Go to high ground or move inland.” Warnings alert the public that dangerous coastal flooding accompanied by powerful cur­rents is possible and may continue for several hours after initial arrival. Warnings alert emergency management officials to take action for the entire tsunami hazard zone. Follow the evacuation order issued by authorities and evacuate immediately. Take your animals with you.Move to high ground or inland and away from water immediately.Stay away from the beach. Never go down to the beach to watch a tsunami come in. If you can see the wave you are too close to escape it. CAUTION – If there is noticeable recession in water away from the shoreline this is nature’s tsunami warning and it should be heeded. You should move away immediately.Save yourself – not your possessions. Dan Nelson, with the Kenai Peninsula Borough Emergency Management: “The communities of Homer and Seward participate in tsunami ready programs, so there are evacuation routes assigned for people to get to higher ground. For instance, in Homer one of the assembly points is often Homer High School, which is above the bluff and has significant elevation for a safe place for people to go. Similarly in Seward, at the Seward High School is the same above the old town site. When that warning goes out people in those low lying areas need to head for higher ground. In our areas here that would include places like Homer Spit, and small boat harbors those types of areas that are very near the water.” Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享A powerful earthquake struck off the island of Kodiak early this morning, prompting a tsunami threat that sent people living along the state’s southern coast fleeing for higher ground, including large portions of the Kenai Peninsula.

What Needs to Happen for More Women Minorities to Get Into Computer

first_img Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Register Now » 5 min read Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goalscenter_img A PayScale report ranked computer science careers among some of the most in-demand and lucrative professions in the United States. But recent figures on high-school students who took the College Board’s Advanced Placement Computer Science exam last year paint a picture of a field that is failing to progress with the times.For one, there were two states — Mississippi and Montana — where not a single female, African American or Hispanic student took the AP Computer Science exam. In fact, in Montana, only 11 students total took the exam, as not one high school in the state offered courses in AP computer science. Perhaps most alarming: In Wyoming, no students took the Computer Science exam at all.Related: This Entrepreneur Wants Girls to Think Engineering Is AwesomeTo break it down:No females took the exam in Mississippi, Montana, and Wyoming11 states had no black students take the exam: Alaska, Idaho, Kansas, Maine, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Utah and Wyoming8 states had no Hispanic students take the exam: Alaska, Idaho, Kansas, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota and WyomingOf the 29,555 U.S. students who took the test in 2013:13,711 were white males; 2,348 were white females1,090 black students2,408 Hispanics8,475 Asians5,485 total females66% of the 29,555 students passed the testWith computer science slated to become all the more important to our growth as a nation, some leaders in science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) are trying to break down the barriers to entry for these underrepresented groups. Here are four ways they are trying to encourage greater participation and access across races and gender in the computer science field.Juan Gilbert, PhD, is an advocate of diversity in computer science.1. Cultural perspectives need a reboot. When professor Juan Gilbert, chair of the human-centered computing school at Clemson University, visits grade schools, kids are often surprised by his line of work. “They’re baffled because I’m African-American,” he says.”A survey actually showed that middle school kids view people in this field as white males who have ugly wives,” Gilbert says. “But the challenge with combatting these stereotypes is that this discipline needs more role models.”Gilbert, who holds the Presidential Endowed Chair in Computing, is conducting his own study on whether society could change how youths view computer science. He had kids watch LabDaze.com, an online reality series featuring his predominantly black students and faculty. His study will follow the young kids over time to see if they later pursue computer science courses.”Will it break down stereotypes? We’ll be visiting schools in Atlanta and Charlotte to find out,” Gilbert says.Jan Cuny of the National Science FoundationImage credit: Steve Robinson/NSF 2. A lack of access to technology is not the problem.Gilbert says the public mistakenly blames the disparity on a lack of computer science labs in low-income schools. “Chemistry and physics require labs and specialized equipment that you could find at a majority of schools across the country,” Gilbert says. “The real problem is not a lack of access; it’s a lack of teachers.”Gilbert says a teacher can get an education certificate in English, algebra, biology, and history – but not in computer science. He says an absence of focused educators in this subject is the real crux of the problem.Jan Cuny, program manager for computer education at the National Science Foundation, says CS 10K is a project that aims to have 10,000 teachers in 10,000 high schools, with a standardized curriculum by 2016. One introductory course will be for all students, and the second course in computing principles will be more advanced.3. Computer science’s applicability needs to be better communicated.Cuny agrees that the AP exam is tough to break into without proper support. “It’s for kids with computers at homes with dads who are engineers,” she says. “It requires a year of java programming.”She adds, however, that because computer science affects all industries, all students should at least understand basic programming, “which isn’t that hard.””Computer science is not just for software engineers, it’s also for healthcare workers, biologists and just about any field,” Cuny says. “[Students] must at least understand computer science tools and how to adapt them to their field.”An example of how the subject touches all fields is TheCoderDayofService, an event on MLK weekend where over 250 technologists come together tocodeon open source humanitarian projects. “We’re igniting a movement of social good within tech and helping great companies connect with passionatecoderswho’ve built open portfolios of their work,” says Vanessa Hurst, founder of the event.Reshma Saujani, founder of Girls Who Code.4. Computer science alums should find opportunities to mentor others. “We need to give students a better introduction to computer science,” says Cuny. “Women aren’t attracted to it because they view it as nerdy and geeky with no societal impact, which is a misconception. It presents an approach to problem solving that can empower you across many fields, and it’s important that women see that.”Reshma Saujani, founder of Girls Who Code, says that’s why a massive cultural shift must take place.

Stranger Danger British Airways sued for treating all men like

first_imgAn Australian businessman is suing British Airways over a ‘humiliating’ policy, which forbids male passengers from sitting next to children they don’t know. Mirko Fischer said it is unfair for the airline to brand all men as potential sex offenders and claimed innocent travellers are being publically shamed because of the policy. British Airways cabin crew patrol the aisles before take-off to check that young passengers travelling on their own or in a different row from their parents are not seated next to a male stranger.If crew come across a man sitting next to a child or teenager they will ask the older person to move, and the aircraft will not be able to take off until the passenger complies with the request.Mr Fischer, a 33-year-old hedge fund manager, became aware of the policy while he was flying from Gatwick with his pregnant wife Stephanie, 30.Mr Fischer was in the middle seat between his wife and a 12-year-old boy. Shortly after all passengers had sat down, having stowed their bags in the overhead lockers, a male steward asked Mr Fischer to change his seat.Mr Fischer refused, explaining his wife was pregnant, at which point the steward raised his voice, causing several passengers to focus on their conversation. Mr Fischer eventually moved but felt so humiliated by the way he was treated that he is suing British Airways on the grounds of sexual discrimination.A win at Slough County Court would force BA to change its policy. “This policy is branding all men as perverts for no reason,” Mr Fischer, who lives in Luxembourg with his wife and their daughter Sophia, said.Children’s charity Kidscape’s Claude Knights said, “I was made to feel like a criminal in front of other passengers. It was totally humiliating. The airline should have procedures in place to avoid this situation.”BA said it would reserve comment until after the case was heard.
