Done and dusted in four days

first_imgNorth Sound (Antigua): Jasprit Bumrah wreaked havoc with a five-wicket haul, complementing Ajinkya Rahane’s long-awaited 10th Test hundred, as India decimated West Indies by 318 runs inside four days to start their World Test Championship campaign in earnest. India’s pace spearhead finished with incredible figures of 8-4-7-5 while Ishant Sharma maintained his fine form with a 3 for 31 haul. The West Indies were bowled out for 100 in 26.5 overs chasing an improbable target of 419 on Sunday.

The win took India to the top of the World Test Championship table with 60 points. Sri Lanka are currently second although they have equal number of points. Australia and England are currently third and fourth respectively with 32 points each.

He has also gone past Sourav Ganguly (11) for most away wins as India captain. It was a Bumrah show in perfect weather conditions as he sent the wickets cart-wheeling thrice during a sensational eight-over spell in which he conceded just seven runs. Playing his 11th Test, he also became the fastest Indian pace bowler to take 50 wickets. Bumrah swung the ball both ways to torment the home batsmen while Ishant and Mohammed Shami (2/13) too contributed in India’s resounding victory which gave them a 1-0 lead in the two-match series. Kemar Roach (38), Miguel Cummins (19 not out) and Roston Chase (12) were the only batsmen who managed double-digit mark. Roach added 50 runs for the last wicket with Cummins but it just delayed the inevitable. No top-order batsman could resist the furious spell from Bumrah, who first dismissed openers Kraigge Brathwaite (1) and John Campbell (7) and later saw the back of Darren Barvo (2), Shai Hope (2) and Jason Holder to complete his five-wicket haul. It is India’s fourth-biggest Test win but biggest in away Tests as winning by 336 runs against South Africa in Delhi in 2015-16 remains their best ever. After resuming the day at 185 for three, Rahane scored a patient 102-run knock but young batsman Hanuma Vihari (93) missed out on his maiden Test ton by just seven runs. India declared their second innings at 343 for seven, the moment Vihari was dismissed. They raised a 135-run partnership for the fifth wicket after India lost skipper Virat Kohli (51) early during the fourth day’s play. Kohli’s scalp did not help West Indies much as Rahane and Vihari gradually took the game away from the hosts with their confident yet contrasting batting. It was Rahane’s first Test hundred since his 132 against Sri Lanka in August 2017 while Vihari threw away a golden opportunity to get his maiden hundred in only his fifth match. Rahane’s patient knock came off 242 balls with just five shots to the fence but Vihari paced his innings nicely. The Hyderabad batsman hit 10 fours and a six in his 128-ball knock with an impressive strike rate of 72.65. However, in an attempt to get some quick runs, he pulled Holder but could not connect the ball and the under-edge was easily taken by Hope. Before that Rahane too fell while trying to score quickly, getting caught by Holder off Shannon Gabriel. Off-spinner Chase (4/132) was the most successful bowler for the hosts as he got rid of Rishabh Pant (7) after dismissing Kohli (51). India lost Kohli in the opening session of the fourth day when his leading edge off Chase flew to John Campbell, who took the catch on second attempt. That ended the fourth-wicket partnership between Kohli and Rahane that yielded 106 runs for India. The other overnight batsman Rahane was joined by Vihari, who easily worked the ball around in gaps to keep the scoreboard ticking. As soon as the new ball was available, pacers Roach and Gabriel operated in tandem but before that West Indies part-timers had bowled 41 overs in this innings alone. While Roach and Gabriel bowled a few testing deliveries, it largely remained an untroubled stay for both Rahane and Vihari.last_img read more

Dying man files human rights complaint says transplant policy is discriminatory

first_imgLaurie HamelinAPTN NewsDavid Dennis from Nuu-chah-nulth Nation in British Columbia has end-stage liver disease and needs a transplant or could die within a month.Although he has willing donors, Dennis is being denied a spot on a provincial wait list because he’s only been sober since June 4, 2019.B.C.’s abstinence policy requires liver transplant recipients have zero alcohol for six months.That’s time Dennis, a 44-year-old father of five, doesn’t have.On Tuesday he and the Union of B.C. Indian Chiefs and Frank Paul Society filed a joint complaint with the B.C. Human Rights Tribunal. Dennis is the President of the Frank Paul Society.He says the provincial transplant policy is a lethal form of racism against Indigenous peoples.“The question really is about trauma — how do you introduce that idea where you calculate somebody’s trauma?” he says.Dennis also says a number of donors with universal blood type have offered to help.“But to my surprise we haven’t even done a test to see what my blood type is.“They don’t have it on file — so the depths of just how silly this process has been reveals quite a bit about the bureaucracy of this health care system here in Vancouver.”Grand Chief Stewart Phillip of the UBCIC is also calling for the abstinence policy to be repealed and for Dennis to be placed on the transplant list.Phillip says intergenerational trauma from colonization must be taken into consideration.“It’s jeopardizing his chance off surviving,” he says.“Indigenous people historically have been acknowledged to have greater issues with substance abuse and alcoholism and things of that nature, and the sense is that if the policy were applied rigidly we would loose a lot of our people.”Phillip had liver disease himself and underwent a transplant 23 years ago.The chief says he’s hopeful B.C. will do the right thing.“I’m optimistic that something good will come out of this,” he says.Dennis says he’s trying to stay positive, but that if he doesn’t win he wants the battle to carry on.“We’re hoping that this case, whether we are around or not, that it continues and that it helps marginalized people in the long run.”He says the most difficult part for him  is having to explain to his 5-year-old daughter that he might die.“Getting to that place where she understands that dad might not be coming back — and that is scary as hell,” he says through tears.The B.C. Transplant Society and the Vancouver Coastal Health’s liver transplant team are reviewing Dennis’ case.lhamelin@aptn.ca@Laurie_HamelinEditor’s Note: After this story was published health authorities in B.C. told APTN their abstinence policy for organ transplant recipients had changed earlier this year. Read Laurie Hamelin’s follow-up story, Liver transplant ‘misunderstanding’ means there’s still hope for David Dennis.last_img read more

Young adults may stumble upon news but they read it every day

by Martha Irvine, The Associated Press Posted Mar 16, 2015 3:21 pm MDT CHICAGO – Young adults have a reputation for being connected to one another and disconnected from the news. But a survey has found that mobile devices and social networking are keeping them more engaged with the broader world than previously thought.They want news, they say, though they don’t always aggressively seek it out — perhaps simply happening upon it on a friend’s online feed. And they want it daily.The survey of Americans ages 18 to 34, sometimes called the millennial generation, found that two-thirds of respondents said they consume news online regularly, often on a social networking site. Of those, 40 per cent do so several times a day, according to the poll, conducted by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research and the American Press Institute.It’s been a slowly building trend in news consumption that experts say is trickling up to older generations — and that young people say helps them stay current, even if they never read an actual newspaper or watch the evening news on TV.“I don’t think people would expect us to know what we know,” says Erica Quinn, a 24-year-old college student in Gainesville, Florida, who participated in the survey. The findings were to be presented Monday in Nashville at the annual convention of the Newspaper Association of America.Among other things, the respondents said their consumption of news and information on various devices was most often sparked by an interest in civic issues, for social reasons, including discussing a topic with friends, or because they just find it enjoyable.The survey found that young adults generally get harder news from more traditional news sites and “softer” lifestyle news from social networks, Facebook being the overwhelming favourite.That’s generally how it works for Marilu Rodriguez, a 29-year-old from suburban Chicago, who participated in a focus group that accompanied the survey.She recalls how, as a child, the TV news would come on at her house after her family had watched the latest episode of their favourite telenovela, a Spanish-language soap opera.“It was a family thing to watch the news,” Rodriguez says.Now her smartphone is her most frequent portal to the world, as she surfs social networking and news sites, often on her train ride to and from work as a co-ordinator for a non-profit organization in downtown Chicago. Like many in the survey, she gets a lot of her news through a “diverse mix of friends” on those social networking sites.She considers herself an active seeker of news and still watches TV news, though she expressed frustration over slanted coverage and lack of serious stories. “Some news stations need to grow up,” she says.Still, only 39 per cent of the survey respondents said they typically actively seek out news, while 60 per cent said they mostly “bump into” that type of content as they do other things on Facebook and other sites.That certainly could be seen as passive consumption.But Tom Rosenstiel, executive director of the American Press Institute, noted that many respondents who generally let news come to them might comment on a story posted by a friend or look for more information because they were skeptical.“So there’s a level of activity or participation that wasn’t even possible in earlier times,” says Rosenstiel, who will present the survey findings in Nashville.He also noted that 70 per cent of young adults surveyed say their social media feeds include a mix of viewpoints, increasing their chances of reading a wider array of content.Overall, the survey found that the average young adult regularly uses three or more social media platforms, among them Twitter, YouTube and sometimes Tumblr and Reddit. The youngest adults often use four social networking sites.That said, survey respondent Travis Morgan says he still likes reading a printed newspaper and watching news on television — and using a search engine to dig more deeply if he wants to know more.“This may make me sound like an old man,” Morgan, a 33-year-old pilot from Grants Pass, Oregon, says, laughing. “I just want the story. I don’t want opinion. I don’t want all this extra stuff.”But that’s not true for many of his elders. Experts who track the public’s online habits say that on-the-go news consumption is growing among older generations as well.Joseph Kahne, a professor who studies civic and political engagement online, has found a steady increase in news consumption and social media across all age groups.That’s good for getting people more involved with topics of the day, says Kahne, an education professor at Mills College in Oakland, California, who chairs the MacArthur Foundation Research Network on Youth and Participatory Politics.But with so much content out there — often from lesser-known sources — he says it also means, “that all of us will need to become increasingly sophisticated, as we will need to make judgments regarding credibility that had previously been made by news editors.”The survey of 1,046 young adults was conducted from Jan. 5 through Feb. 2, 2015, by the Media Insight Project, a partnership between the AP-NORC Center and the American Press Institute, which funded the study.The results tallied online interviews in English or Spanish done with the random sample of adults age 18-34 who were initially recruited and screened to take part in the survey over the phone. Results from the full survey have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3.8 percentage points.___AP News Survey Specialist Emily Swanson contributed to this report.___Follow Martha Irvine on Twitter at http://twitter.com/irvineap .___Online:Media Insight Project: http://www.mediainsight.org Young adults may stumble upon news, but they read it every day, survey shows AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email In this Friday, March 13, 2015 photo, Marilu Rodriguez checks a news website on her smartphone before boarding a train home at the end of her work week in Chicago.

Adopting resolution Security Council approves sanctions against militants in Iraq Syria

As the militants, particularly ISIL, have over the past two months, carried out deadly attacks in Iraq and Syria, the Council unanimously adopted a United Kingdom-led resolution noting grave concern at “the negative impact of their violent extremist ideology and actions on the stability of the region, the devastating humanitarian impact on the civilian populations and the role of these groups in fomenting sectarian tensions.”Ongoing turmoil in northern Iraq has led the UN to designate its highest level emergency – “Level 3” – for the resultant humanitarian crisis, citing the scale and complexity of the situation, which is impacting tens of thousands of people that have been forcefully displaced by the armed group, Islamic State.In its resolution, the Security Council deplored and condemned in the strongest terms “the terrorist acts of ISIL and its violent extremist ideology, and its continued gross, systematic and widespread abuses of human rights and violations of international humanitarian law.”The Council, observing that that ISIL is “a splinter group” of Al-Qaida, recalled that ISIL and Al-Nusra Front are included on the Al-Qaida sanctions list and, as such, expressed readiness to consider listing individuals, groups, undertakings and entities providing support to ISIL or to Al-Nusra Front, “including those who are financing, arming, planning or recruiting for [those groups] and all [Al-Qaida associates] through information and communications technologies including the internet and social media or through any other means.”Demanding that ISIL, Al-Nusra Front and all other individuals and groups associated with Al-Qaida cease all violence and terrorist acts and disband, the Council called on all UN Members States to take national measures to “supress the flow of foreign terrorist fighters,” bring them to justice and engage with those at risk of being recruited to discourage travel to Syria and Iraq.It also reaffirmed that States shall prevent the direct or indirect supply sale or transfer to ISIL and Al-Nusra and associated individuals and groups, of arms and related materials. The Council also notes with concern that oilfields and related infrastructure controlled by ISIL and Al-Nusra are generating income which support their recruitment efforts and strengthen their operational capability to organise and carry out terrorist attacks.Recalling that the asset freeze, travel ban and arms embargo requirements in paragraph 1 of its resolution 2161 (2014) apply to ISIL, Al-Nusra Front, and all other individuals, groups, undertakings, and entities associated with Al-Qaida, the Council directed the team tasked with monitoring violations of those sanctions to report “within 90 days on the threat, including to the region, posed by [ISIL and Al-Nusra], their sources of arms, funding, recruitment and demographics, and recommendations for additional action to address the threat.”Annexed to the Council’s resolution are the names of the six individuals added to the Al-Qaida sanctions list. read more

Araguaia nickel project feasibility study progress update

first_imgHorizonte Minerals, the nickel development company focused in Brazil, reports progress to date of the on-going feasibility study (FS) being undertaken by Worley Parsons Canada Services on its 100%-owned Araguaia nickel project. The company is developing Araguaia as Brazil’s next ferro-nickel mine.Araguaia, which is 100% owned by Horizonte, is located on the eastern margin of the State of Pará, north-eastern Brazil, to the north of the town of Conceição do Araguaia (population of 46,206), south of the main Carajás Mining District.The project has good regional infrastructure including a network of Federal highways and roads, with access to low tariff hydro-electric power. The Carajás Mining District, situated some 200 km northwest of Araguaia, is host to a number of major iron and copper mines operated by Vale.The PFS released in October 2016 considers open pit mining for the exploitation of nickel laterite to establish the production of run of mine (ROM) from eight open pits to supply a targeted 0.9 Mt/y of ore to a processing and smelter facility. This facility will use the proven RKEF process with the product being sold at free on board (FOB) at the selected port of export.A Base Case of 0.9 Mt/y production throughput was selected because of the objective to minimise the capital expenditure and overall capital intensity, and to optimise overall cash flow, payback, and the economics of the project.The FS is progressing on schedule and is over 60% complete, with targeted completion Q4 2017 into Q1 2018.Process Design and EngineeringMajor equipment packages issued to the market to assemble capital costs estimatesPower line route from national grid to plant substation finalisedSite layout work substantially complete and 3D model developedManning tables and organisational structure for future nickel operation concludedGeology and MiningMine planning and design is at an advanced stage of completionGeotechnical sampling and testwork completed to support engineering design in the process plant areas and appropriate pit designSocial & EnvironmentalFinalised environmental control plans for the Installation Licence ready to be submitted to the State Environmental Agency in Q3 2017Sustainability team progressing towards the water pipeline and energy transmission line installation licencesHorizonte CEO Jeremy Martin said, “We are making good progress towards the completion of the feasibility study and with over 60% of the work streams complete to date the feasibility study remains on schedule to be completed on budget around the end of the year with targeted publishing in early 2018.“The next major milestone and de-risking step for the project will be the award of the Installation Licence, which allows construction to start. We are now in a position to submit all the documentation for the Installation Licence to the environmental agency in Q3 2017 with a view to the award of the licence in Q1 2018.“There has been a steady increase in the nickel price over the last eight weeks with prices now over $11,000/t, this aligned with our project milestones over the next 12 months should see increased interest in the company as we advance the project through to the construction stage.”last_img read more

And the upcoming fixture has one other connection with that tournament — the Giants Stadium, in which Ireland famously beat Italy 1-0, was closed to allow for the opening of the MetLife Stadium, where this summer’s clash against Juan Carlos Osorio’s side will be held.“This is a brilliant match for us in our preparation for our World Cup qualifier against Austria,” said manager Martin O’Neil said in a statement following the announcement.Mexico in the United States couldn’t be much tougher but it’s exactly what we want.

Gen Y

first_imgEver since I realised there was a ‘Generation Y’ I’ve been reading how educated, fickle, lazy and entitled they are. I came to expect that anyone aged 15 to 30 would prefer a laptop to a car and would prefer the flexibility of cool employment to the stability of owning a home. So it was strange to find news to the contrary over the past week. A survey from Western Australia – the Financial Fitness Index – found that Generation Y had become more careful with their money than the other generations surveyed, with 56 per cent becoming more conservative in the previous year. In another survey conducted by the Co-Op Bookstore, they found that 94 per cent of 17- 29 year olds were planning to buy a home in the next five years, with average weekly savings of $150. This hardly builds an image of complacency. However, watching this big cohort start to chase the Australian Dream has made me wonder if the financial system is properly prepared for them. One of the things we notice about Generation Y is their preparedness to change jobs, with the ABS labour mobility data showing that 20-24 year olds are three times more likely to change jobs in a year than 45-54 year olds. Gen Ys also have ready acceptance of contract and ‘project’ employment, with many of these skills-based projects being conducted with no entitlements. Earlier generations found it hard to get a mortgage when they were hopping between employers and relying on contracts. The discrepancy between how Gen Ys want to work and how the financial services industry operates doesn’t stop at mortgages. Our superannuation system is predicated on time spent in PAYG employment. How is the generation currently in their twenties going to make this system work for them when their earnings come from contract employment, which usually excludes super? The solution is not something we can put on the backburner: with an ageing population, and with the oldest Gen Ys about to move into their high income years, there are ramifications for our national economy in terms of how financially stable we allow these people to be. Home ownership is a huge part of financial stability in this country and I believe this generation will, to a certain extent, just have to knuckle down. Simply showing a savings history is not enough – lenders typically look for either full-time employees or long term written contracts. But as the Gen Y becomes more conservative, mortgage lenders will have to think about meeting them halfway. There’s no point in creating an economy filled with contract employment if we then attempt to shut these workers out of the housing market. So how are we going to make this work? Will Gen Y ‘fake it’ and go into stable employment long enough to get a mortgage? Or will lenders become realistic about how the labour market works for twenty-somethings? I’d love to hear what you think. * Mark Bouris is the Executive Chairman of Yellow Brick Road, a financial services company offering home loans, financial planning, accounting & tax and insurance.EmailMarkonmark.neos@ybr.com.au with any queries you may have or check www.ybr.com.au for your nearest branch.

Australian citizens applying for partner visas also under scrutiny as of 17

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram Currently, part of the criteria for Partner visa permanent residence requires the visa applicant to be sponsored by an Australian permanent resident, Australian citizen or eligible New Zealand citizen. Together, the visa applicant and their partner submit their applications to the Department of Home Affairs.”Up until now, lodging a valid partner visa whilst in Australia allowed the visa applicant to obtain a Bridging Visa A (BVA) taking effect when their current visa expires.Given that there are two eligibility paths to a Partner visa, one either has to be in a Married relationship or be in a De Facto Relationship. The BVA holder would then be able to remain in Australia until a decision were to be made on the partner application. During this processing time the BVA holder was also be entitled to Medicare and full work rights.ALSO READ: A visa odyssey with no end in sight“The new change, however, will require the Australian partner to lodge their sponsorship application and have this approved before the partner visa application can be lodged,” Ms Dimopoulou, who works for Meticus, said.“Given that the Australian sponsorship application is not a visa application, the process can extend to an extra 12 to 18 on top of everything. The non-Australian applicant can only apply for permanent residency after the Australian citizen’s application is approved.”Ms Dimopoulou clarified that it is not yet clear whether the Australian party who will have to submit an application in order to be approved as a sponsor for their partner will also have to pay during the submission period.“Amending the migration legislation, according to the government is meant to help protect permanent residency applicants from sponsor-partners who have previously commented family/domestic violence crimes or have abused underage individuals,” she explained.READ MORE: 5-year temporary visa for parents commences in Australia“However, the previous process also included a police and criminal record check, which has left immigration lawyers and counselors baffled as the only thing that appears to change due to the amendment is extending the waiting period fore a partner visa from 20 months to 32 or even 38 months.”Changes will not affect Partner visas submitted up until 17 April 2019 and current arrangements will continue to operate. Finally, there is no time-frame for expansion of the new sponsorship framework to other family visas and therefore the current arrangements for existing visas, including partner visas, will continue to operate from 17 April 2019.*If you are planning to apply for a Partner visa we recommend booking an appointment to discuss and understand how these changes may impact you.last_img read more

Charges dropped in attempted-murder case

first_imgThe Clark County Prosecuting Attorney’s Office on Thursday dropped a slew of charges — including attempted murder — filed against two men accused in the stabbing of an acquaintance.Vancouver defense attorney Shon Bogar told The Columbian that he received an email shortly before noon from the prosecution, explaining that the case against his client, Troy D. Meyers, and his co-defendant, Michael Conley, had been dismissed. The prosecution cited the dismissal as being “in the interest of justice,” court records show.Conley, 50, and Meyers, 47, were facing charges of attempted first-degree murder, first-degree assault, first-degree kidnapping and intimidating a witness. Meyers was also charged with tampering with a witness and possession of methamphetamine.The charges were dismissed without prejudice, meaning they could be refiled at a later date.Bogar said he was surprised by the news, because during a hearing last week, he had asked a judge to dismiss the case, but the prosecution objected.To his knowledge, nothing had changed since that hearing, he said, and there hadn’t been any new evidence shared with the defense.He asked the prosecution if the decision to dismiss has anything to do with Clark County sheriff’s Detective Kevin Harper — the lead on the case — who’s under criminal investigation. However, Bogar has not received a response confirming that, he said.last_img read more

Another sign of weakness in China weighs on U.S. stocks

first_imgNEW YORK — Stocks took small losses Monday after China reported a drop in exports in December, but the market didn’t come close to matching the plunges it took in the last few months.Indexes in Europe and Asia headed slightly lower after the latest report added more evidence that China’s economy is weakening. Major U.S. indexes fell about 1 percent at the start of trading, but soon recovered much of what they’d lost. Technology companies slumped.Drugmakers fell after Democrats in the House of Representatives announced an investigation into prescription drug pricing. A strong quarterly report from Citigroup helped bank stocks trade higher.China’s exports slipped in December, and exports to the U.S. fell 3.5 percent as rising tariffs and broader weakness affected the world’s second-largest economy. Concerns about the Chinese economy and the overall global economy were a major contributor to the market’s plunge in late 2018.Mark Esposito, president of Esposito Securities, said the calm reaction to the news from China suggests stocks won’t fall further than they did in December.last_img read more

Possibly 90 of Victoria Library contents gone

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppTurks and Caicos, March 9, 2017 – Grand Turk -Some 80 to 90% of what was in the historic, Victoria Public Library is gone; gobbled up in that early morning fire today at the Grand Turk public library.Magnetic Media just moments ago spoke to former Chief Minister, Hon. Derek Taylor, who said he has seen the damage at the burned building and believes that almost everything work anything is gone.  Taylor, like so many others lamenting on the fire, is saddened about the incident which he says cast a dark cloud over the Capital today.“When I got the call I was in shock.  That someone would – because from all accounts it seems to be arson – that someone would get rid of our institution, a building that has been here for ages and that has served the total community.  Not only the school children.”Mr. Taylor explained that gifts to the library from the United States, Canada, the U< and from around the Caribbean were consumed by the blaze, despite valiant attempts by people darting into the burning building to save the twelve decades of books and memorabilia.  Hon Taylor said shelves which had been there from the library was opened, books, research papers, desks and so much more are all gone and only a art of the building remains now after what is strongly suspected to be arson.“The library was built with curry limestone and next to the library, I think it can be salvaged because it still had the roof on it when I left earlier this morning.  The main library, the roof has been destroyed and what has been salvaged in terms of books, pamphlets and that sort of thing is what we are trying to get stored.  We are asking those who would have plastic containers to bring them so that we can store the books elsewhere.”  It was shared that the books and other items salvaged are dry.Grand Turk has no domestic fire unit and has not had one for over a decade now.   Despite promises to correct the situation on the island which sees the largest traffic of people in the country due to the Grand Turk Cruise Center, there remains no remedy.  Police confirm that the fire was reported around 4:41 am but as late as 8aam, there was still a fire at the small iconic building which is located on Duke Street.Hon Taylor said he believes the process is prolonged when it comes to fire response due to a number of factors including: where the fire fighters have to come from, the permissions the airport fire crew has to receive and that tit is not a unit dedicated to fighting domestic fires.  “We are dealing with fire fighters who are stationed at the airport and I take it that they have to seek permission from their supervisors and what have you in order to come to town.  I think that is the normal procedure.”In January 2016, the country was horrified by a fire, intentionally set at HJ Robinson High which consumed a newly constructed block including the school’s computer lab.  It is a crime yet solved and a set-back of $2 million for the country.  Months later, in November, one of the homes recently completed by the EU Hurricane Ike funding was destroyed by fire.  It was also reported that the fire of Beatrice Gardiner’s home in Grand Turk, was intentionally set.The Victoria Public Library saw construction start in 1887 and was opened in 1889, and was dedicated to Queen Victoria on the occasion of her Golden Jubilee.#MagneticMediaNews The Luxury of Grace Bay in Down Town Provo Electricity Cost of Service Study among the big agenda items at September 11 Cabinet meeting Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp ALERT # 2 ON POTENTIAL TROPICAL CYCLONE NINE ISSUED BY THE BAHAMAS DEPARTMENT OF METEOROLOGY THURSDAY 12TH SEPTEMBER, 2019 AT 9 PM EDT Related Items:#magneticmedianews Recommended for youlast_img read more

first_imgHowever, the 31-year-old artist is planning to wait until she can “devote all her time to being a good parent. Since she is getting older, she has even thought about freezing her eggs too. She can’t wait to be a mom.”Meanwhile, in 2018, during an interview with Vogue, Rihanna did share her concerns about turning 30. She told the publication: “Okay, so now that I’m 30, are there things I’m supposed to do? Should I be worried? Should I be freezing my eggs? What do you do at 30?!””I’m not gonna be able to take my eyes off my kid. I know that already about myself. They’re going to have to force me to hire a nanny,” she added. Rihanna is single after splitting from Hassan JameelGetty ImagesA celebrity gossip website has come up with claims that Rihanna is reportedly ready to become a mother. The Barbadian singer who is single after splitting from Saudi Arabian businessman Hassan Jameel is apparently ready to raise a child on her own.According to a report in Hollywood Life, Chris Brown’s former girlfriend is even thinking of freezing her eggs so she can have children in the future. A source said: “Rihanna gets baby fever all the time but she is hesitant to start her family for a lot of reasons. She loves holding babies and playing with them and has always wanted to be a mom, but mostly bad timing and a busy schedule are standing in her way.””She used to think she had to be married to have kids and there was a time when she was young that she thought Chris[Brown] was going to be the father to her kids,” the insider added. “She realizes that even if things don’t work out with Hassan, she can do it on her own if needed.”Rihanna is so determined to have her own children that she does not even want to hire a nanny. The source went on: “She knows that she is successful and strong enough to be a great single mom. Rihanna is looking forward to being a very hands-on mom too. She doesn’t even want to hire a nanny.”last_img read more

Android Ransomware Uses Porn To Lure Potential Victims

The text would activate an encryption program that would lock out users from virtually every file on their devices. To regain control of the device, victims would have to pay a ransom in the form of Bitcoins.Cybersecurity website Welivesecurity said the ransom amount could be somewhere between $90 to $190, based on the current value of Bitcoins at the time of the cyber attack.Experts believes Android/Filecoder.C may have been active on the web as early as July 12.The people behind the ransomware also tried to hide the program using the URL shortener bit.ly. The dubious URL has already accumulated 59 clicks at the time the engineers reported about the threat.Android/Filecoder.C is also capable of masking itself in 42 different languages in order to reach a wider audience. The program chooses the language that suits its intended victim, even using their own name to personalize the text message.Welivesecurity confirmed that the ransomware will not be able to decrypt affected files if the app is removed from devices. However, its research team was not able to find any indication in the program’s code to prove that encrypted data will be deleted after 72 hours.How To Keep Devices SafeTo avoid getting victimized by the Android/Filecoder.C ransomware, experts advise users to do the following steps:Make sure that devices are kept up to date. It is ideal to set software to automatically download and install patches and updates to stay protected from different cyber threats.Download programs only from Google Play or other reputable app stores to minimize the possibility of getting malicious apps.Before downloading apps, make sure to check their ratings or reviews from other users. Pay attention to any negative comments from legitimate users to find out if the app is reliable or not. Some cyber criminals post positive feedback on review sites to mislead users.Double check the permission requests made by apps. If the request does not seem to match the supposed functions of the app, the program should not be installed.Always have a reliable and reputable mobile security solution on devices to help keep them safe from cyber attacks.

She spoke on the theme of diversity and how to break down the barriers between various minorities, male-female, religion, national origin, etc. She gave many photo examples of how we pigeon hole people into neat categories and that we often say we have equally in society, however her images showed recent images of big political summits where there are no women present, or they were the secretaries in the background. She said in medical practice, department administration and collaboration on projects, people need to be cognoscente of bias they have engrained by culture for which they may not even be aware.She showed a slide of the AAPM membership makeup by generation and said members need to keep in mind the way each generation thinks and communicates varies by their generation’s life experience and upbringing. McCollough said understanding these differences can help bridge perceived gaps in communication. Find more news and videos from AAPM.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

PowerLook Tomo Detection is a concurrent-read, cancer detection solution for 3-D digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT).In a U.S. clinical study conducted in 2016, radiologists were able to decrease reading time by up to 37 percent, with an average reduction of 29 percent, when using PowerLook Tomo Detection, with no statistically significant impact on sensitivity, specificity or recall rate.“At Imaging for Women, we are dedicated to bringing our patients and community the most advanced technologies available today to support breast cancer detection,” said Phyllis Fulk, administrator, Imaging for Women. “With iCAD’s PowerLook Tomo Detection, we are now able to take screening and diagnostic mammography to the next level, making it possible to improve detection with greater accuracy and more efficiency, without compromising clinical performance.”Unlike 2D full-field digital mammography that typically produces four images per breast exam, tomosynthesis exams produce hundreds of images, often requiring radiologists to spend a significant amount of time reviewing and interpreting images. iCAD’s PowerLook Tomo Detection utilizes a trained algorithm developed through deep learning that automatically analyzes each plane in this vast data set, supporting radiologists in identifying questionable areas with greater speed and precision. Suspicious areas identified are then blended into a 2-D synthetic image to provide radiologists with a single enhanced image.“Our radiology team is thrilled with the unique capabilities and improved workflow iCAD’s AI breast cancer detection technology provides, said Mark Malley, M.D., chief of radiology, Imaging for Women. “I have a higher level of security that I haven’t missed any significant findings with the iCAD for tomosynthesis. This is a helpful tool in our diagnostic toolbox.”For more information: www.icadmed.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Related Contentlast_img read more

first_imgArizona Cardinals head coach Bruce Arians doesn’t open up a whole lot about how his tenure ended with the Pittsburgh Steelers.On Tuesday night, fans will get a chance to hear exactly what happened, as Arians is set to be featured on HBO’s “Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel.”In the two-minute promotional video, Arians said he talked to head coach Mike Tomlin and was told, “I’ll get you your bread.” Comments   Share   Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Top Stories center_img Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact Arians said that he got a call later from Tomlin, who had apparently changed his mind and couldn’t get him a new contract.“I walked upstairs and told my wife, and I’d never seen her cry, and she cried,” Arians said.He goes on to say that he thinks it was his style of offense that ultimately cost him his job, and that he thought his coaching career was over.

Much like her famously outspoken husband, she didn’t hold back.“I had admired Mike Tomlin so much and I really thought he was a coach who really cared about his people,” Mrs. Arians said. “Well, I felt really disillusioned.”last_img read more
