Trump has another Republican challenger, Mark Sanford

WASHINGTON, USA (AFP) - Former Republican Governor Mark Sanford today announced his participation in his party's presidential nomination race as part of a long-term challenge to President Donald Trump. .
Sanford, who would be the third Republican to submit a main offer against Trump, said he had decided to run because of the "impressive" debt and deficit accumulated during his presidency.

"I think that as a Republican party we have lost our way," he said in an interview for "Fox News Today".

"The president has said he is the king of debt and has a level of familiarity and comfort with the debt that, in my opinion, is finally leading us in the wrong direction."
Sanford's decision came as Republican officials in some states, including South Carolina, Nevada and Arizona, plan to cancel their 2020 primary.

When asked if he really believed he could defeat Trump, Sanford replied, "I say you never know."
"I list my goals, my main objectives are to say that we must force ourselves or try to create a conversation about what we do not talk about in this presidential cycle," he said.

"What is missing in this debate is a sincere and real conversation about the debt and deficits of public spending".

Sanford was governor of South Carolina from 2003 to 2011 and served two terms in the House of Representatives, but lost a party primary in 2018.
Trump is also facing Republican nomination Joe Walsh, a former Tea Party firefighter who served a single term in Congress, and William Weld, a former Massachusetts governor.

Seven countries in South America have agreed on measures to protect the Amazon Basin from global concerns over massive fires in the world's largest rainforest.

Bolivia, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Guyana, Peru and Suriname have signed a pact establishing a disaster response network and satellite monitoring.

At a summit in Colombia, they also agreed to work on reforestation.
More than 80,000 fires have broken out in the Amazon jungle this year.

"This meeting will be a coordinating mechanism for the presidents who share this treasure: the Amazon," said Colombian President Iván Duque, who organized the summit in the city of Leticia.

At the same time, Peruvian President Martín Vizcarra said: "Goodwill is not enough anymore."
The seven nations also agreed to make greater efforts in education and to strengthen the role of Aboriginal communities.
Countries were represented in Leticia by presidents, vice-presidents and ministers.
Brazilian far-right president Jair Bolsonaro took part in a video link because he was preparing for an operation.

What's the background to this?

The Amazon is a vital reservoir of carbon that slows global warming. 60% is in Brazil.

According to the country's National Institute for Space Research (Inpe), the number of fires between January and August 2019 is twice that of the same period last year.

President Bolsonaro has been strongly criticized nationally and internationally for failing to protect the region.
Environmentalists say their policies have led to an increase in fires this year and they have been encouraging farmers to clean up vast areas of the rainforest since their election last October.

Bolivia has also been affected by forest fires near its borders with Brazil and Paraguay.
At the same time, the leading group of the Brazilian meat export and agricultural companies has joined an environmental campaign calling for the end of deforestation on Amazonian public lands and demanding action by government.

Several international retailers have announced that they are suspending their purchases of Brazilian leather because of links between livestock and fires that devastate part of the Amazon rainforest.

Dr. Eugenio Galindo explains how advanced technology is changing the future of cancer care

A certified oncology specialist, Dr. Eugenio Galindo shares insight on how emerging technologies are creating an impact on the future of cancer care and cure. “As cancer is constantly evolving so why not its approach to cure?" says medical director of the cancer center at doctors hospital.
The medical community is constantly looking out for new ways to fight back against cancer through personalized care and treatment that is safer and more effective.

The advancement of technology is continual progress that affects clinical practice in a drastic manner.
It is advancing at a rapid pace and exciting developments are on the horizon.

Dr. Eugenio Galindo

This phenomenon holds true across all areas of patient care, particularly oncology says Dr. Eugenio Galindo

Technologically new innovations are pushing the boundaries of care for patients with cancer both in the surgical and the interventional realms.

Dr. Eugenio Galindo states that every single person is unique which makes sense that each person’s cancer treatment should also be unique

When cancer treatment is personalized, specialized, and focused then a patient has a higher chance of overcoming their particular form and severity of the illness. Chemotherapy drugs come with a long list of unpleasant and potentially dangerous side effects, and because no two people are the same, it’s often hard to predict the exact impact these drugs will have.

Several new technologies have been approached in recent years in the treatment of many cancers. This progression of technology and cancer-related therapies is aiding in the development of creating a standard of care for cancer. It is imperative for nurses to remain connected to technologies as robotics and transarterial chemoembolization technologies are becoming the future of care for cancer treatment.

Dr. Eugenio Galindo also adds on that “immuno-oncology is the technology that has arisen with the promise of improving the outcomes of cancer treatments by helping the immune system identify and attack tumors.
One recent advance that’s helping patients fight cancer without so many side effects is targeted therapy (or targeted treatment). The purpose is to create and maintain a database of patients with similar genetic profiles which can be used to suggest more effective targeted treatments that are more likely to work for individual patients.

Furthest, the hope is to target drugs that can be used one day to treat anyone with cancer. It will be in the next coming years until they are available in the best-case scenario and prove their worth in clinical traits.
However, we are on the path to reach the future of treating cancer in a more personalized manner and the chances of beating the disease are higher than ever” says Dr. Eugenio Galindo.
