LONDON Homme Air Force One Flyknit Basse Grise Soldes , Nov. 4 (Xinhua) -- England's 50,000 junior doctors were offered an 11 percent pay rise Wednesday, just 24 hours before they are balloted on taking industrial action.

The new pay deal is part of a last ditch effort by government health secretary Jeremy Hunt to avert a walk-out by NHS medics in hospitals across the country.

Hunt has written to all junior doctors outlining changes and concessions the government is offering in a long-running row over working hours.

The government is committed to hospitals offering a wider 7-day service to patients Air Force One SF Desert Ochre Boots Soldes , which will mean changes in weekend working hours for medics.

In a statement issued today Hunt has called on doctors' negotiators to return to the negotiating table.

The British Medical Association (BMA) which represents all doctors, has organised the official ballot which will run for two weeks.

If enough junior doctors support industrial action it could lead to doctors downing stethoscopes and walking out of hospitals, proposed pay rise would see the basic pay of a junior doctor rise from 22 Homme Air Force One Basse 07 LE Bordeaux Soldes ,636 to 25,500 pounds.

The health secretary said three out of every four junior doctors would get pay rises, with the rest seeing their salaries protected.

In his statement Hunt said: "Junior doctors are the backbone of the NHS Femme Air Force One Haute Bordeaux Soldes , but the current contract has failed to prevent some working unsafe hours, and doesn't reward them fairly. We know also that they feel unsupported because consultants and diagnostic services are not always available in the evenings and at weekends.

"Today a firm offer for a new contract has been published by NHS Employers. The new contract will be fairer for doctors, safer for patients and juniors alike Homme Air Force One Basse Bleu Soldes , better for training, and will better support a 7-day NHS.

"This offer builds on the cast-iron guarantees that I have previously offered the British Medical Association (BMA) including that we would not remove a single penny from the junior doctors' pay bill, and we would maintain average earnings for junior doctors. The proposals offer an 11 percent increase to basic pay Femme Air Force One Haute Bleu Soldes , with further increases linked to progressing through training and taking on roles with greater responsibility - instead of being based on time served.

"Since they withdrew from negotiations in October 2014 the BMA have refused to return to the table. In light of today's announcement we hope that the BMA will now agree to return to negotiations."

In the past few weeks thousands of doctors have marched through city streets, winning public support, in protest at the proposed changes to their working patterns Homme Air Force One Basse Blanche Soldes , claiming patients would be put at risk.

BEIJING, Sept. 25 (Xinhuanet) 钬?A man who was paralyzed from the waist down has become the first such case to walk using only his own brain power.

The 26-year-old American man was confined to a wheelchair after a motorbike accident five years ago. Using a computer system developed by researchers from University of California, he was able to walk about 12 feet (3.66 meters).

The system works as it reroutes signals from his brain to electrodes on his knees. He uses a walker and wears a harness to provide some body-weight support and prevent him from falling.

Dr. An Do Air Force One Basse Blanche Soldes , who led the study, said, even after years of paralysis the brain can still generate robust brain waves that can be harnessed to enable basic walking.

It is world's first such experiment in which scientists used non-invasive direct brain control system to get a person -- with complete paralysis in both legs owing to spinal cord injury - - to walk again Air Force One Basse 07 Homme Noir Blanche Soldes , researchers said.

HAVANA, Jan. 11 (Xinhua) -- In 2016, 74 percent more U.S. citizens took advantage of improved bilateral ties to visit Cuba, compared to the year before, the Cuban government announced on Wednesday.

The officla dada shows that in 2016, 284,937 Americans visited Cuba, for a 74 percent increase in comparison with 2015," Josefina Vidal, director of U.S. affairs at Cuba's foreign ministry, posted on Twitter.

While U.S. citizens are still banned from freely traveling to Cuba, the administration of outgoing President Barack Obama has relaxed restrictions, allowing travel for business, education, religious or humanitarian purposes.

President-elect Donald Trump, who takes office on Jan. 20, has hinted he may revert such policies to pressure Cuba into making more concessions to Washington.

Cuba has seen a tourism boom since Havana and the White House agreed in 2014 to work to normalize ties after half a century of animosity.

Regular commercial flights from U.S. cities to Cuban destinations were relaunched in August. Today seven airlines operate nearly 20 flights a day from the U.S. to Havana.

Cruises have also increased, with companies from Spain, Russia, Canada and the U.S., including Cuba, on their sailing itineraries.

In 2016, Cuba saw a record 4 million international visitors, 13 percent more than in 2015.

The tourism industry is hoping to attract more visitors, although it lacks the infrastructure for rapid growth.
