FN education panel facing secrecy concerns

first_imgAPTN National NewsIt has only made one stop, but the government’s blue-ribbon panel on education is already raising suspicions that it’s not as independent as the government claims.The panel on First Nation education started its journey across Canada last week looking for answers on how to improve education for First Nation youth.It was created by the Assembly of First Nations and Ottawa.During the panel’s first visit in Akwesasne on Friday, government officials were very protective of the panel, even asking reporters for questions ahead of time.The tactic prompted the AFN to send out a statement.“We want to ensure that the panel is independent and seen to be independent and, for that reason, the AFN will be advising (Aboriginal Affairs) of our concerns about any appearance of control (by the department),” the statement said.last_img read more

Indices log 9th straight session fall

first_imgMumbai: Indian equities fell for the ninth session in a row on Monday as investors fretted about health of non-banking finance sector, US-China trade tensions and uncertainty over poll outcome.In their longest losing streak in years, the BSE Sensex crashed over 372 points and the NSE Nifty dived nearly 130 points on sustained sell-off across the board.

China demands US drop latest sanctions over Iran oil

BEIJING — China has demanded that Washington drop sanctions imposed on Chinese companies and executives for transporting Iranian oil.The foreign ministry on Thursday criticized the use of U.S. laws against Chinese companies and called on the Trump administration to “immediately correct the wrong approach.”A ministry spokesman, Geng Shuang, said China’s dealings with Iran are in line with international law “and must be respected.”The penalties announced Wednesday by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo apply to six Chinese companies and their chief executives. They include units of major Chinese state-owned companies.Geng said Washington “disregards the legitimate rights and interests of all parties and wields the stick of sanctions at will. It tramples on the basic norms governing international relations.”The Associated Press read more

Annan calls on Israel to halt destruction of Palestinian homes in Gaza

According to UN relief teams, 2,197 people have lost their homes following the demolition of 191 homes throughout Gaza in the first 15 days of May, with Rafah the worst-affected area. There was also news of Israeli military plans for a more extensive round of house demolitions in Gaza.”[The Secretary-General] repeats his call on the Government of Israel to fulfil its obligations under international law as it acts to ensure its security. As the occupying power, it must cease such acts of collective punishment immediately, and to refrain from further grave violations of international law,” Mr. Annan’s spokesman said in a statement.Asked earlier by reporters about the destruction of housing in Gaza, the Secretary-General said: “I am really distressed that [it] continues. It really is causing a very difficult and painful situation for the people of Palestine.”Meanwhile, the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) has opened a school to house the latest victims of the destruction and is distributing tents, food, water, kitchen kits, mattresses and blankets. The Agency estimates that it will cost $32 million to re-house the 18,382 people who have lost their homes across the Gaza Strip.UNRWA Commissioner-General Peter Hansen said the Agency now “has the job of dealing with the human tragedy behind each demolition – the distressed children in its schools, the homeless families in need of basics like blankets, food and water, and the communities shaken by the stress of ceaseless conflict.”He also stressed that his agency is facing severe under-funding of its Emergency Appeal for 2004 and is unlikely to receive all the resources it needs to meet the needs of the homeless. Already, many thousands of people have waited more than two years for the agency to provide them with new, permanent shelter. read more

In condemning reporters murder UNESCO lauds courage of journalists in Iraq

Praising the courage of reporters who take “enormous personal risks” in Iraq to provide the public with information needed “to exercise their democratic rights and duties,” the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) has voiced outrage at the murder of an Iraqi television journalist.Raeda Mohammed Wageh Wazzan, from the regional public television station Iraqiya, was found dead on 25 February, five days after she and her son were kidnapped in the city of Mosul – the 33rd journalists killed in Iraq in the past two years. Her son was released after three days.According to the non-governmental organization (NGO) Reporters without Borders, Ms. Wazzan was the 21st journalist kidnapped in Iraq since March 2003 – and the second to have been murdered by her abductors after Italian journalist Enzo Baldoni, assassinated last August.“Ms. Wazzan proved, through her commitment to her profession, as her colleagues continue to do, that the campaign waged by terrorists in Iraq to silence the media is failing,” UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura said in the latest of a long series of messages he has issued on the murder of journalists around the world.“The terrorists’ campaign of intimidation, violence and murder can only be qualified as a succession of gratuitous crimes against innocent persons and against the basic human right of freedom of expression, enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights,” he added.UNESCO’s mandate includes the defence of freedom of expression and press freedom. read more

Kia tells Sportage owners to park outside due to fire risk

DETROIT – Kia is telling owners of nearly 72,000 older SUVs in the U.S. to park them outside because an electrical short in a computer can cause engine fires.The automaker is making the statement as it recalls Sportage models from the 2008 and 2009 model years.In documents posted Tuesday by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, Kia says that water containing road salt can get into a braking control computer. That can cause wiring connectors to rust and a circuit board to short, possibly sparking a fire.The problem was discovered after a 2008 Sportage caught fire while parked in a driveway in April. The documents show that Kia received a total of nine complaints about “thermal events” in the SUVs. No crashes or injuries were reported.Kia will notify customers about the recall, which will begin on Nov. 28. Letters sent to owners will tell them to “park your vehicle outdoors and away from other vehicles or structures until you have the recall repair performed,” spokesman James Hope said in a statement.If dealers find wiring rust, they’ll replace the computer assembly. If there’s no rust, they’ll replace a cover, the company said in documents.Kia says customers with questions can contact the company at (800) 333-4542. by The Associated Press Posted Nov 22, 2016 9:16 am MDT Last Updated Nov 22, 2016 at 1:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Kia tells Sportage owners to park outside due to fire risk FILE – In this Sunday, Sept. 28, 2008, file photo, unsold 2008 Kia Sportages sit at a dealership in the west Denver suburb of Lakewood, Colo.

Illegal armed groups pose persistent threat to Africas Great Lakes region –

The United Nations envoy for Africa’s Great Lakes region encouraged today the countries of the region, and the UN Security Council, to help strengthen the fight against illegal armed groups in the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and its neighbours, particularly as elements of the former M23 rebel group have resurfaced.“The persistent activities of illegal armed groups remain one of the main threats to the security of the population and the stability of the DRC and the region,” said Said Djinnit, the Special Envoy for the Great Lakes Region told the Security Council this afternoon. He said there is a need to boost efforts to neutralize these armed groups, including the Democratic Forces for the Liberation of Rwanda (FDLR) and the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF), building on the progress made so far by the Congolese armed forces (FARDC) with the support of the United Nations Organization Stabilization Mission in the DRC (MONUSCO). “In this regard, it is important to further strengthen cooperation between these two forces. It is also important, as underlined by Security Council resolution 2348, that the Intervention Brigade, with the support of MONUSCO as a whole, increases its offensive operations against these armed groups,” he underscored. Mr. Djinnit went on to welcome the launch by the DRC, Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda on 18 February of the Joint Monitoring Mechanism to respond to the growing threat posed by the Allied Democratic Forces (ADF). “I call on all participating countries to contribute actively to this mechanism and to provide it with the necessary resources to enable it to fulfil its mission effectively,” he said. Overall, the Special Envoy encouraged the countries of the Great Lakes region “to continue their efforts by taking measures to address the problem of illegal armed groups.” Regarding the political situation in the DRC, Mr. Djinnit called on Congolese political actors to scrupulously implement the 31 December Agreement, in order to create the conditions for the holding of transparent and inclusive elections. “I urge them to refrain from any action that could lead to violence,” he said, reiterating the readiness of the UN to support the Congolese parties in the implementation of that Agreement.Reporting some progress on the implementation of the region’s Peace, Security and Cooperation Framework, he said that he had also witnessed promising steps towards strengthening economic cooperation. “I encourage the signatory countries to continue to engage in joint development projects that contribute to further enhancing regional integration and stability,” he stated.The Framework, signed by Angola, Burundi, Central African Republic, Democratic Republic of the Congo, Republic of Congo, Rwanda, South Africa, South Sudan, Uganda and Tanzania – encompasses commitments at the national, regional and international levels to bring peace and stability to the eastern DRC and the region. read more

Sony embeds PS2 in budget 22 LCD TV

first_imgAs far as Sony’s gaming division is concerned, the PS3 is the focus and the PS2 is a part of history. But the Japanese company’s TV division has other ideas, and has decided to include the aging last generation games console in a new TV.The Sony KDL-22PX300 is a budget 22″ LCD TV capable of displaying 720p output. It has 4x HDMI ports, 3x USB 2.0 ports, and 2x optical outs. In the base of the stand comes the surprise, though. A PlayStation 2 in a new case slides in and out allowing you to play hundreds of games, but also offering DVD and CD playback.AdChoices广告The price of this display is $310, so it won’t break the bank and may make for a great bedroom TV for the kids. That is if they aren’t pestering you for a PS3 or Xbox 360.There’s no information on when this TV is going to become available and in which territories at the moment.Read more at KotakuMatthew’s OpinionAs this is a HD panel Sony must be doing some kind of upscaling of the PS2 output otherwise it’s going to look pretty poor. The same is true of any DVDs you try to play through the PS2 hardware if upscaling hasn’t been implemented.I’m not sure if this budget TV is going to be popular or not. If you grew up playing PS2 games then this may be tempting, especially if your PS2 no longer works or has been sold. It may also be the case that the PS3 you have doesn’t include backwards compatibility like the early models did.For kids today that want a TV in their room, a PS2 won’t cut it. They’ll demand an iPhone, DS, or PS3 and Xbox 360. Wii? I’m not so sure how many kids want one anymore.last_img read more

Family to honour Nick the Greeks memory with MND fundraiser

first_imgEach year over 700 people are diagnosed with Motor Neurone Disease (MND) in Australia, and just as many die from the condition.The Ambatzidis family know what a diagnosis of MND means all too well, having lost their father Nick Ambatzidis, also known as ‘Nick the Greek’, almost 12 months ago. To help raise awareness and give thanks to MND Victoria, Nick’s daughter Fiona and son Stavros are heading to Asia to take part in the Great Wall of China Walk to D’Feet MND in a bid to raise $50,000 for the organisation.“They were here for us,” Stavros told the Herald Sun. “If we rang, they had the equipment out the next day . . . their role, the way I saw it, was to make the patient more comfortable and make the family more comfortable, because there is no cure for it.”Those diagnosed with MND face a life of terminal illness, are heavily impacted in their daily lives and eventually lose their ability to talk, hold items, and shower without assistance. The equipment required can cost up to $65,000 which is where MND Victoria steps in, lending equipment to patients free-of-charge. Stavros recalls when his father’s muscles lost their ability to function, which lead to losing his capacity to talk. This lead Nick to write, leaving behind three journals for his family.“In a way that was a blessing – it’s an honour, really, to have it,” Stavros said.Team ‘Nick the Greek’ will begin the walk on 5 September just two days shy of the anniversary of their father’s death.So far they have raised over $11,000 towards their goal. To help Stavros and Fiona reach their target you can donate here. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagramlast_img read more

Outstanding owed wages could see Loutraki Casino shut down

first_imgLoutraki Casino has come under fire over its failure to pay employees on time, and could face closure as a result.According to Kathimerini‘s sources, two-and-a-half months worth of salaries are owed to its workers.New laws voted in earlier this year stipulate that if salaries are not paid to employees within 30 days, the casino could face having its operating licence suspended for a couple of months at least. If this occurs up to three times, the permit can legally be revoked permanently.The casino, located west of Athens, was inspected by the Labor Inspection Squad, which forwarded its findings to gaming regulator EEEP. The case is expected to be discussed at the regulator’s next meeting, which will eventually decide on the outcome of the case.Loutraki Casino is not the only one under watch over owing employees money; according to sources, casinos across Greece in Rio, Corfu and Syros will also be invited to the upcoming hearing.

Météo France une diminution du froid espérée mais incertaine

first_imgMétéo France : une diminution du froid espérée mais incertaineDans le meilleur des cas, Météo France prévoit la fin du phénomène actuel de grand froid jeudi, à 21 heures. Toutefois, le bureau d’étude Météo-Consult reste réservé, estimant que la vague de froid persistera jusqu’à la fin de semaine dans l’Est du pays.Alors que le froid sévit dans l’Hexagone, que 56 départements français restent placés en vigilance orange et que 33 autres sont toujours en vigilance jaune grand froid, Météo France ne prévoit pas d’amélioration immédiate. Les températures relevées mercredi matin sont comprises entre -8°C et -12°C en plaine, et jusqu’à -20°C en altitude, notamment sur le Massif Central, rapporte Europe1.fr. Or, selon les experts météo, aucun dégel n’est à espérer. À lire aussiProduits bio, maquillage et la foudre : les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 6 juinDe même, Météo France souligne que les températures glaciales qui ne passeront pas en positif (elles resteront comprises entre -2°C et -5°C) seront accentuées par le vent. Ainsi, selon le bureau d’étude Météo-Consult, la vague de froid se prolongera jusqu’à la fin de semaine dans l’Est après un renforcement attendu jeudi. Cette accentuation du froid, à prévoir pour demain, devrait être due au vent de nord-est, avec un ressenti particulièrement glacial, compris entre -15°C et -25°C. Un “très lent redoux” est par la suite possible, mais il reste à confirmer.Cette nuit, la neige est de nouveau tombée dans de très nombreux départements causant de multiples perturbations. Côté circulation, celle-ci n’a pas empêché la circulation en Ile-de-France malgré des difficultés sur l’A6, l’A13, l’A4 et l’A15. En revanche, plusieurs interdictions de transports scolaires restent en vigueur notamment dans les départements de l’Orne, d’Eure-et-Loir, du Lot-et-Garonne, du Gers, du Lot, de la Charente-Maritime et de la Vienne.La prudence reste donc toujours de mise et il est vivement recommandé de s’habiller chaudement avant de mettre le nez dehors, notamment pour les personnes fragiles ou souffrant de maladies chroniques, comme l’explique le Dr Gérald Kierzek sur Maxisciences.

Jack Dorsey Twitter Mulling Short Window to Edit Tweets

first_imgStay on target Elon Musk’s Cheeky ‘Nuke Mars!’ Post Is Taking Over TwitterTwitter Tests Subscribe-to-Replies Feature Twitter is still considering adding an edit button, according to co-founder Jack Dorsey.In an interview with Joe Rogan, Dorsey addressed the possibility of a short window during which users can refine their 280-character tweet before broadcasting it to the world.“You know what I would like? I would like the ability to edit, like if you make a typo or something like that,” Rogan said. “But also the ability for people to see the original.”“We’re looking at exactly that,” Dorsey announced.Twitter was designed more than a decade ago as a broad SMS platform—a sort of global text messaging service. And, as Dorsey pointed out: “When you send a text, you can’t take it back.”“So when you send a tweet, it goes to the world instantaneously,” he continued. “You can’t take it back.”(Obviously, there is always the option to simply delete the message. But that’s not the point.)Dorsey teased a five- to 30-second delay in sending, allowing folks a few moments to annotate.“I’m gonna need more time than that, dude,” Rogan retorted, echoing every Twitter user’s own thoughts.After all, you’ll need a few moments to re-read what you wrote, spot the mistake, Google the correct spelling, and make the correction. The process is compounded when tweeting from a mobile phone.“The issue with going longer than that [is] it takes the real-time nature and the conversational flow out of it,” Dorsey explained. “A lot of the great Twitter is just in the moment.”When asked whether clarity is more important than speed, the social network CEO claims it “depends on the context.”“If you’re in the context of an NBA game, you want to be fast and you just want to be in the moment. You want to be raw,” he said. “But if you’re in the context of considering what the president just did or making a particular statement, then you probably need some more time. And we can be dynamic there.”The conversation moves on from there, leaving listeners to wonder when, if at all, such a feature will roll out.All the way back in 2016, Dorsey hinted that an edit button—one with a five-minute window—was at the top of the firm’s wish list, along with bookmarks and safety and reporting options.Two of the three have since been released. Fingers crossed for the trifecta.More on Geek.com:Twitter Tests ‘Original Tweeter’ Tag to Identify Threat CreatorsTwitter Is Piloting a New Design Update With an Emoji ButtonTwitter Launches Reverse-Chronological Feed Update for Androidslast_img read more

Small king has big lead in 63rd Sitka Salmon Derby

first_imgPat Dodson (pictured with his daughter, Kaycie Carter) knows he has a tenuous lead with this 31-pound 6-ounce fish. But the kings have been running smaller the last few years. “One year I caught a 49-pounder, but a 60-pounder won. I came in 13th!” (Sitka Salmon Derby photo)After three days of fishing, a 31-pound 6-ounce chinook leads the Sitka Salmon Derby.Listen nowWhile the leader is excited to be in the money, he’s also aware that should he hang on to his lead after two more days of fishing next weekend, this will be the smallest fish in 63 years to win Sitka’s derby.Like many a leader after the first weekend in the two-weekend long event, Pat Dodson is not giving anything away.“For a hint, I was very close to town,” Dodson said.Just about everyone in the 63rd Annual Sitka Salmon Derby was close to town, as gusty winds and driving rains churned Sitka Sound into frothy tempest. Dodson who manages inventory for the Southeast Alaska Regional Health Consortium, and who is a veteran of many derbies, said he settled into a protected spot and waited for the fish to bite.When Dodson brought his king into the weigh station with just 20 minutes to spare on Memorial Day, he was surprised to learn that his 31-pound 6-ounce chinook was at the top of the leaderboard.“I don’t think a fish that small has ever won the derby, and I know they’ve been getting smaller over the past couple of years. I’d really be surprised if that stayed,” Dodson said.But it might stay, and if it does Dodson will win another $7,500 — on top of the $500 for having the biggest fish on Monday.While everyone knows there are big fish out there — the biggest king ever to win the Sitka derby weighed over 73 pounds — everyone also knows the 40- and 50-pounders are becoming scarcer.Although it seems counter-intuitive, king salmon aren’t getting smaller. Ed Jones, the chinook salmon research coordinator for the Alaska Department of Fish & Game, says kings are getting younger.“What’s really driving that issue with chinook salmon getting smaller is there aren’t any older-age fish anymore. They’re coming back younger,” Jones said.Jones made this presentation on May 21 in Sitka, as part of the state’s Chinook Salmon Symposium. It was an effort to bring everyone up to speed on the latest science — and politics — driving reductions in the Southeast king salmon harvest.Last year’s derby winner weighed 35 pounds, 6 ounces — likely a five-year old salmon that’s been in saltwater for three years. The 2016 winner weighed 40 pounds, 8 ounces — again, maybe five years old — which until then was the smallest fish to win. From 1956 to 2014 derby winners always tipped the scales in the neighborhood of 50 to 60 pounds and up — likely all fish that were at least six years old.Pat Dodson came in third a couple of dozen years ago for total poundage. He’s seen the big fish come over the rail.“I also remember one year I caught a 49-pounder, but that year a 60-pounder won it,” Dodson said. “And I think the following year a 47-pound fish won. I wasn’t too lucky. I think I came in 13th place with that 49-pounder.”Dodson fished all three days of the Memorial Day Weekend, despite the miserable weather, and he plans on fishing both days next weekend as well.Like all other derby participants, he’s not put off by this year’s one-fish bag limit on the outer coast.“The weather is probably a bigger factor,” Dodson said.last_img read more

Forward captures this patient information as FHIR (Fast Healthcare Interoperability Resources), making it one of the first production implementations of this important new standard.The platform enhances continuity of care by streamlining the process of information sharing, while offering time-saving efficiencies for both patients and providers.  Designed for ease of use, it supports patient and referring physician access through a provider website, patient portal or patient e-mail link and allows onsite review of all information before transmission to the endpoint system. All data communication is HIPAA-compliant with two-factor authentication. The information collected through the product is stored in the FHIR standard.“Today, patients often must carry medical records from multiple providers to a hospital or physician’s office,” says Varun Anand, co-founder of MphRx.  “If they neglect to bring this information, imaging exams may have to be redone at significant added cost to the healthcare system. Records may be incomplete, potentially compromising quality of care. Forward is designed to make healthcare information sharing simple and convenient for both patients and referring physicians, while streamlining workflow for the receiving facility.  All that is required to send information is a computer and a standard Internet connection.”Anand points out that Forward provides a wide variety of customizable forms that patients can access and complete at home, paring down waiting room time. These forms can be designed to capture information about a current condition and medical histories as well as demographic and insurance information. The system enables patient information update without the inconvenience of completing an entire new hardcopy form.All forms can be stored in a picture archiving and communication system (PACS), radiology information system (RIS) or electronic medical record (EMR); data formats include structured reports (SR), DICOM embedded PDFs or form response structured data, similar to EMR flow sheets. Forward can be programmed to automatically e-mail a secure link to an intake form to a patient scheduling a radiology exam. Forms can be customized to collect data specific to the exam type and can be pre-populated with patient demographics for existing patients.An appointment scheduled by an existing patient can be programmed to automatically trigger emailing of a similar questionnaire. Forward also can be embedded into a hospital or practice website so that new patients are presented with appropriate forms after they have registered with a physician.MphRx Forward may be implemented onsite or using the company’s secure cloud.  All forms are fully customizable based on templates for specific medical specialties and event types, such as new patient registration and magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scheduling. They support personalization with a medical site’s logo.Fully automated for efficiency and convenience, forms can be triggered by specific patient encounters and physician workflow. Images are sent to a PACS as a DICOM SR object or DICOM image snapshot, while information is transmitted into the EMR through HL7 or API.For more information: www.mphrx.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Medical 3-D Printing | August 08, 2019 RSNA and ACR to Collaborate on Landmark Medical 3D Printing Registry The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) will launch a new medical… read more Technology | Contrast Media | August 05, 2019 Bracco Receives FDA Approval for Varibar Thin Liquid for Oral Suspension Bracco Diagnostics Inc. announced U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) approval for Varibar Thin Liquid (barium… read more News | PACS | August 08, 2019 NetDirector Launches Cloud-based PDF to DICOM Conversion Service NetDirector, a cloud-based data exchange and integration platform, has diversified their radiology automation options… read more News | Enterprise Imaging | July 29, 2019 Philips Announces 10-year Enterprise Informatics Agreement With Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire de Nancy Philips and Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire (CHRU) de Nancy, a leading academic hospital in the Grand Est… read more News | Breast Imaging | August 02, 2019 Volpara to Distribute Screenpoint Medical’s Transpara AI Solution Volpara Solutions and ScreenPoint Medical BV signed an agreement under which Volpara will sell ScreenPoint’s Transpara… read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more Technology | PACS Accessories | October 26, 2015 MphRx Debuts Forward Data Transmission Platform at RSNA 2015 Platform fast forwards forms, DICOM data and patient records to PACS, RIS and EMRslast_img read more
