first_imgBRUSSELS – European authorities said Wednesday they have opened a preliminary antitrust investigation into Amazon over the e-commerce giant’s treatment of smaller merchants on its website.EU Competition Commissioner Margrethe Vestager said she wants to examine how Seattle-based Amazon uses data it gathers through transactions, including those involving rival sellers, on its platform.“The question here is about the data,” Vestager said at a press briefing.She said the probe will look at whether the data, which is collected for legitimate purposes, is also used to give Amazon a competitive advantage over the smaller merchants by giving it insights into what kinds of things people want to buy.In addition to selling its own products, Amazon also allows third-party retailers to sell their goods through its Marketplace. Last year, more than half of the items sold on Amazon worldwide were from third-party sellers.“It is very early days in this antitrust investigation into Amazon’s business practices,” Vestager said.She added that EU regulators have started gathering information on the issue and have sent “quite a number of questionnaires” to merchants and others in order to understand the issue.Amazon.com Inc. declined to comment Wednesday.It’s the latest move by the European Union to subject big tech companies to increasing scrutiny, amid worries that they are becoming too dominant.Amazon has been the target of previous EU investigations. Last year, officials ordered it to pay $295 million in back taxes to Luxembourg after finding that the company profited from a tax avoidance deal with the tiny European country. EU officials also investigated Amazon’s e-book business, which was resolved last year.last_img read more

first_imgKolkata: Star India wrist spinner Kuldeep Yadav believes he wouldn’t have been successful at the world stage had it not been for skipper Virat Kohli, who gave him the freedom to attack. “You need a skipper who backs you and believes in your ability to shine on the big stage. You think we could have been so successful if Kohli bhai had not given us the freedom to attack? I don’t think so,” Kuldeep told PTI in an interview. Kuldeep, who played for Kolkata Knight Riders, was badly let down by the batting friendly conditions at Eden Gardens in this year’s IPL as he returned with just four wickets from nine matches before being dropped by his franchise in the business end of the tournament. Also Read – We will push hard for Kabaddi”s inclusion in 2024 Olympics: Rijiju The 24-year-old said he is looking forward to put the IPL disappointment behind with a spectacular performance in the upcoming World Cup beginning May 30. “IPL is very different than World Cup. There are players who have done well in IPL but have struggled to make a mark for the country. I’ve matured as a bowler and by no means it will affect my performance in the World Cup,” Kuldeep said. “It’s (T20) such a format, you may have a bad day where you’re hit for runs. I’m not a magician who will do well in every match. You cannot say I will take so many wickets.” Also Read – Djokovic to debut against Shapovalov at Shanghai Masters By his own standard, an average of 71.50 in IPL is something he would look to forget. “If I’m not getting wickets it does not mean I’m not bowling well. Now I play as a mature cricketer and think more about the team,” Kuldeep said. Kuldeep also spoke about the recent controversy about his comments on Mahendra Singh Dhoni that sometimes the former skipper “goes wrong” with his tips. “How can a youngster like me make such comments on a senior member of the side? My comments had been misinterpreted by media to create a controversy,” he said. “There is no doubt that his tips have been invaluable not only for me but for the entire team. His presence behind the stumps makes our job easy and nobody can change that fact. We wouldn’t have been half as effective without his inputs.” Andre Russell was a terror in the IPL with his batting exploits and single-handedly turned KKR’s fortunes before they failed to make the playoffs. Kuldeep said he has learnt a few tricks which he would employ against the West Indian in the World Cup. “He has some problems facing a turning ball. If the ball is turning, then he has a weakness. It’s not just this, I’ve different plans to unleash against him in the World Cup. I know how to stop him and I’m very clear in my mind,” he signed off.last_img read more

Some 35 representatives from the UN, governments and sex work networks and organizations are attending a two-day consultative workshop organized by the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS). The workshop seeks to identify strategies for the UN and sex worker communities to collaborate in preventing the spread and mitigate the impact of HIV/AIDS among sex workers, according to UNAIDS.”The ultimate challenge is for Governments to make access to HIV prevention and care available to sex worker communities, implement policy and legal frameworks that do not discriminate against sex workers, set up programmes that empower young women, and work towards eliminating violence against women,” said Lin Lean Lim, Manager of the International Labour Organization’s (ILO) Gender Promotion Programme.Experts agree that much can be done to address factors that force men and women to use sex work as a means of survival, increasing their vulnerability to HIV, according to UNAIDS. This vulnerability is exacerbated by stigma and discrimination, criminalization, limited access to health services, exploitation, and violence. Sex work is also a significant economic sector in many countries, accounting for more than 2 per cent of gross domestic product in four Southeast Asian countries in the late 1990s, according to ILO estimates.While sex workers are among groups most affected by HIV, they have mobilized to become leading advocates and educators on prevention and care, UNAIDS said. Field experience also indicates that sex workers are among those most likely to respond to HIV prevention programmes and that involving them directly in the development and implementation of such programmes is key.Successful prevention efforts among this high-risk group will also have far reaching benefits for society as a whole because high HIV rates among sex workers often foreshadow an increase in the general population, UNAIDS said. read more

Miners push TSX higher, Bombardier plunges 8% on CSeries launch delay by Malcolm Morrison, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 16, 2014 6:36 am MDT The TMX Group logo, home of the TSX, is shown in Toronto on June 28, 2013. THE CANADIAN PRESS/Aaron Vincent Elkaim AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – The Toronto stock market racked up a solid advance Thursday, due in large part to a jump in the mining sector.The S&P/TSX composite index closed up 59 points to 13,831.58, weighed down in part by Bombardier (TSX:BBD.B) after the transport giant said that its flagship new airliner will be going into service later than expected.Bombardier (TSX:BBD.B) shares plunged 35 cents or 7.74 per cent to $4.17 after the company announced the delay concerning its new CSeries aircraft. Volume was very heavy at 35.7 million shares, about seven times the issue’s daily average of about five million.The aircraft builder said that the CS100 won’t be going into service until the second half of 2015, while the larger CS300 will go into service about six months later. The first CSeries planes were previously expected to be ready for service late this year or early in 2015.“It’s hard to know what the cause of the delay is,” said John Stephenson, portfolio manager at First Asset Funds.“There’s a cash-burn issue associated with this delay and whether or not they have to end up funding it through an equity issue is some of the worry.”The Canadian dollar rose 0.16 of a cent to 91.53 cents US.U.S. indexes were mainly lower amid earnings reports from the American banking sector and data showing a continuing decline in jobless insurance claims and tame inflation.The Dow Jones industrials fell 64.93 points to 16,417.01, the Nasdaq gained 3.81 points to 4,218.69 and the S&P 500 index slipped 2.49 points to 1,845.89.Goldman Sachs turned in fourth-quarter earnings per share of US$4.60, higher than the $4.22 that analysts had forecast. Revenue came in at $8.78 billion versus the $7.713 billion that had been expected but its stock lost early momentum and turned down $3.16 to $175.59.Citigroup fell $2.41 to US$52.58 as the bank posted earnings per share ex-items of 82 cents versus the 95 cents that analysts had forecast. Revenue was $17.94 billion, weaker than the $18.18 analysts had expected.After the bell, chip giant Intel posted quarterly earnings of 51 cents a share, a penny higher than forecast. Revenue of $13.83 billion beat forecasts of $13.72 billion but it disappointed on revenue outlook and its shares fell 2.2 per cent in after-hours trading.On the economic front, the U.S. consumer price index rose a slight 0.3 per cent in December, translating into an annualized rate of 1.5 per cent.And the U.S. Labor Department said that claims for jobless benefits declined last week by 2,000 to 326,000, which was in line with expectations.This was the first glimpse of the job market since the release last Friday of a disappointing employment report that showed U.S. job creation coming in at 74,000, far less than the 200,000 that had been expected.That data raised a fresh round of questions about how the Federal Reserve will proceed on further cutting back on its massive monthly bond purchases, which have kept long-term rates low and encouraged a strong rally on equity markets.The Fed has cut $10 million from its monthly bond purchases, which fall to $75 billion, but said further tapering depended on the strength of the economy, particularly job creation.The Bombardier announcement helped push the industrial segment down almost one per cent. Railway stocks also declined and Canadian National Railways (TSX:CNR) fell $1.09 to C$58.64 while Canadian Pacific Railway (TSX:CP) lost 73 cents to $163.52.The metals and mining sector led advancers, up 4.37 per cent even as March copper declined two cents to US$3.34 a pound. Teck Resources (TSX:TCK.B) gained $1.19 to C$28.51 while Thompson Creek Metals advanced for a third day after an upgrade by Bank of America/Merrill Lynch. Its stock advanced 12 cents or 3.8 per cent to $3.28 after having risen 12 per cent Wednesday and 18 per cent Tuesday.The energy sector was ahead 0.73 per cent as the February crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange moved down 21 cents to US$93.96 a barrel. Birchcliff Energy (TSX:BIR) jumped 86 cents or 11.36 per cent to C$8.43.February bullion climbed $1.90 to US$1,240.20 an ounce and the gold sector rose about 0.7 per cent. Iamgold (TSX:IMG) climbed seven cents to C$4.25 .In other corporate news, Best Buy shares plunged 28.6 per cent to US$26.82 in New York as it said Thursday that a key sales barometer fell during the holiday shopping season. Best Buy Co. said comparable store sales dipped 0.8 per cent for the nine weeks ended Jan. 4, but that was better than the 1.7 per cent decline in the prior-year period. read more

After ending their three game skid with a shutout victory against No. 4 Denver, the Ohio State men’s hockey team (1-3-0) will go on its first road trip of the season against the Lake Superior State Lakers (4-1-0).OSU started off its season on a low note by getting swept in a two-game series by the unranked Quinnipiac Bobcats at the Schottenstein Center.But the win over Denver at Nationwide Arena should steer the Buckeyes in the right direction. Their next opponent will be their second conference contest of the season.Lake Superior State is coming off of a disappointing 2008-2009 season as they finished with a 9-21-5 overall record, including an 8-16-4 CCHA record. The team’s CCHA preseason ranking was 10 out of a total of 12 conference teams.A stat that defined their unproductive season was their 1-12-0 record in games decided by one goal.A positive note for the Lakers is that they return seven of their eight defensemen, but they also lose three of their top five goal scorers from last season.Key returning players for Lake Superior State are senior forward Zac MacVoy and sophomore forward Fred Cassiani. Also returning is senior goaltender Pat Inglis, who had a 2.01 goals allowed per game average last season.The Lakers have looked to turn the page from their past season, as they have started their season with a 4-1-0 record and are currently riding a three game winning streak.The Buckeyes split their last series versus the Lakers last season, losing 7-3 and winning 4-2 at the Schott.“Based on last year, they are a big and physical team,” sophomore defenseman Matt Bartkowski said. “They really took it to us here. We are just going to try to go in there, punish them, and win.”Coach John Markell said junior Dustin Carlson will start at goalie over sophomore Cal Heeter for Friday’s contest, but he hasn’t decided who will start the second game of the series.“It’s great that we have two goalies ready to go and they will battle it out,” Markell said.“The key for them is that the team that plays in front of them plays hard no matter who’s in the net.”Markell believes that his two goalies are in a “healthy competition.” Both goaltenders have played a game in their two opening series.When asked if Markell needed a true number one goalie, he said he just needs a guy in that position to play well.The Buckeyes will be competing without junior forwards Hunter Bishop and Kyle Reed, both out with injury. Markell believes that this will give other athletes on his team a great chance to gain more experience on the ice.Both contests this weekend will be played at 7 p.m. read more

first_imgTHE NUMBER OF dangerous driving matters dealt with by the courts has almost halved over the past eight years, according to new figures from the Courts Service.Overall, the number of road traffic cases increased by 1% over the past decade (up from 198,412 in 2005 to 200,786 last year), but the latest figures show changes in the types of offences dealt with by the District Court over that period.Almost 130,000 defendants were involved in last year’s cases.In 2013, the District Court made 3,886 orders in relation to dangerous driving offences – a drop of 15% on 2012, 22% on 2011 and 28% on 2010. Compared to 2006, there were 42% fewer dangerous driving orders made last year.Meanwhile, last year saw a drop of 39% over two years and 46% over three years on the number of drink driving matters dealt with by the district court.Drink driving orders have fallen almost 60% from 27,836 made in 2006 to 11,329 last year.Last year, 165 people were imprisoned for drink driving offences. Meanwhile, 220 offenders received suspended sentences and 63 were ordered to undertake community service. The district court also handed down almost 4,000 fines and disqualified around 4,200 defendants from driving.Over half of all summary matters before the courts are road traffic-related, according to the Courts Service.Explainer: Do pedestrian crossing buttons actually work? >last_img read more

Motorola Atrix Lapdock dropped to 50 by ATT

September 21, 2019 | mrhtxubs | No Comments

first_imgWhen it  launched at the beginning of this year, the Motorola Atrix was dubbed “the world’s most powerful smartphone.” It was also the one with the most interesting accessories, which included a dedicated multimedia dock for hooking up the Atrix to your home theater and the lapdock, which turned the phone into an Android-powered laptop.Unfortunately, the lapdock first hit the street with an exorbitant $500-plus price tag that most folks seemed to find a tad off-putting. You can buy a pretty solid Windows laptop for that kind of money, really. Later the dock dropped to $299, which made it a bit more interesting — but now it’s an absolute steal at just $50 from the AT&T web store.For those of you who already own the original Atrix, picking up a lapdock at this price is a no-brainer. For those who don’t, well, if the idea intrigued you and you have an extra $400 lying around, grab an unlocked Atrix on eBay and then hurry back to AT&T and buy the dock before they run out of stock.This is the closest the Atrix lapdock has come to its introductory pricing at Best Buy in quite some time. It’s almost certainly a move to clear out any remaining stock by AT&T — not an attempt to generate interest the way RIM has been with its repeated price changes on the PlayBook in recent months. It’s high time for the Atrix 2 to take center stage, after all, so its predecessor and accessories need to make room.More at AT&Tlast_img read more

Microsoft Office app for iPad spotted

September 21, 2019 | mrhtxubs | No Comments

first_imgUPDATE: Microsoft, who historically have not commented on rumors at all, have since told The New York Times “The Daily story is based on inaccurate rumors and speculation.”The question of whether a Microsoft Office app is coming to the iPad is no longer in question: it’s now a matter of when. Someone with hands-on access to an early version of the app has sent in a photo to The Daily.Microsoft has built plenty of apps for iOS already, so it’s not too shocking that they had designs on developing an iPad version of the world’s most popular productivity suite. They had also already released a single Office app for iOS, OneNote, and that proved to be incredibly popular ever since its arrival in the App Store. Ratings have also been largely positive.According to The Daily‘s source, Word, Excel, and PowerPoint functionality will be offered — and it would be a shock to see Microsoft go beyond these four (when you include OneNote) to offer premium apps like Access or Outlook. The design is reportedly Metro-ish, and almost certainly looks similar to what you can already see in OneNote. Swap out the purple for the other trademark colors — blue for Word, green for Excel, and orange for PowerPoint — and you’ll have a good idea how things will look.While not mentioned, it’s also a safe bet that SkyDrive integration will be included. Microsoft’s cloud storage service already features prominently in OneNote for iOS, after all.With the iOS waters thoroughly tested, the time will soon be at hand for Microsoft to dominate the tablet productivity app space. It’s becoming a huge opportunity for them, too, as more and more iPads infiltrate enterprise settings and compliment existing laptops and desktops that already have access to the traditional Office suite.Office has already made its way to the web, and there’s a OneNote app for Android phones and tablets as well. It’s entirely possible that we’ll see Microsoft continue their tablet push with Office for Android, rounding out what will no doubt be the three hottest tablet platforms come the end of 2012: the iPad, Android, and Windows 8.More at The Dailylast_img read more

first_imgBut why tagging PM in this instead of filling a complaint with Mumbai police. I have seen standing comedians librus cracking worst jokes than this against Narendra Modi. I completely condemn such abusive & vile comments coming from any side of the aisle, however Anurag what are you achieving by just tagging PM Modi ? If you are really serious about the safety of your daughter then tag the police. Modi is a Chowkidar, not a Hawaldar. Jitendra Kr. Lenka⏺‏ @jitendralenkaa Chowkidar Sunil Jain‏ @Sunil961 Rajnish Chaudhary‏ @Rajnishrrc I doubt if he understand the meaning and ideology behind putting Chowkidar in front of his name. So for any such incidence immediately file an complaint rather than twitting such a serious thing on twitter!!! Amit A‏ @Amit_smiling Swati Davari‏ @swatidavari Sailor‏ @sailorsmoon Sir complaint kariye. Modi ji ne nahi sikhaya ye sab kisi ko naa hi unki party ye sab endorse karti hai. Please, aaj ke din ye sab kyu karna. Kalyani Oswal‏ @K_Oswal Krishna‏ @Atheist_Krishna Smit Vijay‏ @vj_smit Mr. Kashyap tell me how is Mr. Narendra Modi responsible for this threat by someone whome perhaps Modi ji not even knowing. Go complain to the police as simple as that. How is Modi responsible for an act of any individual….? A screenshot of Anurag Kashyap’s Twitter post and rape threat to his daughterTwitterati have slammed filmmaker Anurag Kashyap after he complained to Narendra Modi about his followers threatening to rape his daughter and said that the Prime Minister is a chowkidar, not a hawaldar.Anurag Kashyap, who is a big critic of Modi’s brand of politics, has been vehemently ranting against the PM for the last several months. His views have hurt the followers of NaMo, who have trolled the filmmaker on several occasions. The undeterred filmmaker blasted the trolls.Soon after PM Modi-led NDA won a majority of Lok Sabha seats on May 23, one of his followers had replied to a post of Anurag Kashyap’s daughter Aaliyah. The fan, with the handle Chowkidar_ramsanghi_, threatened to rape her if she does not tell her father to stop his Twitter rant.Anurag Kashyap had also shared the screenshot of Ramsanghi’s reply to his daughter Aaliyah and questioned NaMo on his follower’s rape threat.Anurag Kashyap tweeted, “Dear @narendramodi sir. Congratulations on your victory and thank you for the message of inclusiveness. Sir please also tell us how do we deal with these followers of yours who celebrate your victory by threatening my daughter with messages like this for me being your dissenter.”Many Twitterati, including some followers of PM Modi, have condemned Ramsanghi’s rape threat to Anurag Kashyap’s daughter Aaliyah. But they asked the filmmaker to stop ranting and approach the police. Such threats should not be dealt so casually. If there is no action, then he might want to tag the PM or whoever he wants. Right now ranting online, serves no purpose.Yo Yo Funny Singh‏ @moronhumor Jamin Majethia‏ @Majethiajdcenter_img Shivanshi Dixit‏ @ShivanshiDixit Modi ji ko tag karne se acha police ko tag karoge to jyada sahi rahega sir Please instead of asking to NaMo, you should file police complaint, they should get punished. Shubhangi Sharma‏ @shubh19822 Any tom harry who writes Chowkidar and Modi ji responsible!? Hv u lost yr senses? File a police complaint dimwit Sir, no sane person will agree with that idiots comments. Modi ko tag karne ke bajay Police complaint karo. Modi Chowkidar hai Hawaldar nahi. Hahaha………..Again trying to PLay Vcitim Card ……& LOOK who is complaining about Threats & Abuses…….the SAME Anurag Kashyap who himself was ABUSING MODi through out these Last 6 Months The person who is making such comments should be thrown behind the bar. I am sure whether it’s Modi or Rahul or any other party they will do the same. Even criminals and and anti social are supporting political parties , that doesn’t mean it’s the fault of the party head. Twitterati’s reply to Anurag KashyapTwitterश्री‏ @srbisen I hope you have filed a complaint with police / cyber crime to investigate facts. It’s better they investigate rather than you announcing that he is a @narendramodi follower. Don’t forget some anti-national elements will always try to create unrest, don’t fall prey to it. These guys are idiots. Complain to police and get them booked. Modi is not SHO of your nearest police station. MaHaK‏ @mahakbhawani We get this kind of stuff too. You’ll find scumbags all across the spectrum & you don’t have to be so sore. Tag the police instead of the PM. We get that you’re her dad & you got extra emotional, but remember that most dads won’t even know & it happens to all of us. Bhai aapke ghar ke baahar kachra ho toh Modi Saaf karne thodi aayega.

first_img X – / 9The Houston Fire Department says about 500 gallons of pesticides were stored at the warehouse complex on Laverne Street.On Thursday, the warehouse was consumed by a large blaze with multiple explosions.Some residents are now concerned about how chemical runoff in ditches and creeks may affect their drinking water.Gricelda Escobar, manager at nearby La Curva Ice House, said the fire has affected her business, and she doesn’t trust the tap water.“It worries us because we cook and right now we can’t use the water,” she said in Spanish.The city of Houston says the water is safe to drink.Victor Gonzalez, who lives just across from the warehouse, said he will continue to drink filtered tap water. But he’s staying inside because of the smoke that continues to linger.“The fireman, he says it’s danger,” he said.Gonzalez said he has lived in his house for 23 years and had no idea about the chemicals being stored next door. But he feels safe now.“That chemicals was danger, but now we don’t have anymore,” he said with a chuckle.Down the road, Carlos Zaragoza works at a furniture repair shop, which borders on the warehouse property. He doesn’t feel good about breathing in the air here either.“That’s why we got the doors closed,” he said. “That way we don’t get too much air from there.”The Houston Health Department is waiting for test results of the air as well as of Spring Branch Creek for pesticide contamination levels.Authorities are advising residents to avoid creeks and ditches and not to eat fish caught from any stream or bayou in the area.

According to the authors, there may only be three cities in North America that could plausibly host the 2088 summer Olympics. Everyplace else could be too warm.The supposedly safe North American cities are San Francisco, Calgary, and Vancouver. The authors didn’t predict any safe locations in South America, Central America, the Middle East, or Africa. Asia only has two — Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan and Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia. Europe is in better shape as there are many cities in Scandinavian countries that could be suitably cool in 2088.The analysis isn’t claiming that being outside in other places will be universally unhealthy in 2088, but it may well be too warm for extreme athletic activity to be safe. Competitors in the Olympics are competing at the edge of human endurance, and high temperatures can be much more dangerous. As a benchmark for this claim, the paper uses an average temperature of 82.5 degrees Fahrenheit. That’s certainly not sweltering, but marathons are sometimes cancelled when temperatures get that high.Using two climate models to predict the increase in regional temperatures, the study authors estimated which cities were likely to be consistently warmer. Thus, they would be unsafe for Olympic events like the marathon. The analysis points out the Olympics could still be held in warmer locations with most events taking place indoors or at night. Olympic stadiums may have to be designed with roofs. It just wouldn’t be the Olympics as we know them now.last_img read more

first_imgIn a major breakthrough,the crucial black box of the doomed AirAsia jet was today found in the Java Sea stuck under the debris from the plane’s fuselage and will be retrieved tomorrow as the major breakthrough in the search raised hopes of unravelling the mystery of the crash soon.Indonesia’s Directorate General of Marine Transport confirmed that the black box of AirAsia Flight QZ8501 has been found. The breakthrough comes exactly two weeks after the flight from Surabaya to Singapore went down with 162 people on board. Also Read – Pro-Govt supporters rally as Hong Kong’s divisions deepenCoordinator of the Directorate General of Marine Transport Tonny Budiono said navy divers from Indonesia navy ship KN Jadayat found the black box at a depth of 30 to 32 metres.The black box is currently wedged between pieces of wreckage making it difficult for divers to retrieve, and due to time constraints, retrieval will take place tomorrow morning, said Budiono.The search crew will attempt to retrieve the black box by moving parts of wreckage to loosen it from where it is currently stuck, and if that fails, the same balloon method used to lift the tail of the plane will be employed, he said. Also Read – Pak Army ‘fully prepared’ to face any challenge: Army spokesmanTo facilitate recovery efforts, a marker buoy has been installed at the site where the black box is, Budiono said.The black box was found after strong “pings” were heard in the Java Sea and a large object likely to be the plane’s fuselage was located near the spot from where the tail section was retrieved.The black box was located amid poor weather conditions which continued to hamper search efforts to locate the wreckage of the Airbus A320-200.The developments come a day after the tail of the doomed AirAsia jet was lifted out of the choppy waters of the Java Sea using inflatable balloons. The black box was not found inside the section. The 10-metre-long metal chunk, with the words “AirAsia” clearly visible across it, became the first major wreckage lifted off the seabed.The recorders are important because they should contain the pilots’ final words and possibly various flight data.Indonesia AirAsia plane lost contact with ground control on December 28, less than half way into a two-hour flight from Indonesia to Singapore and crashed possibly due to bad weather.Only 48 bodies, including at least two strapped to their seats, have been found in the Java Sea. However, only 27 among the toll have been identified.last_img read more

Making its debut at the 2014 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) annual meeting in Chicago, the solution is comprised of products and services that enable healthcare providers to implement and manage a comprehensive computed tomography (CT) lung screening program which tracks and guides patients across the health continuum.Philips’ solution can be used with most low-dose CT scanners and consists of an integrated portfolio of products and services that together offers healthcare providers a complete program for early lung cancer detection and ability to easily assess individual patient status as well as overall program key performance indicators.”Lung cancer has a significant mortality rate in the U.S., and given the large number of heavy smokers in the aging baby boomer population, we can expect to see that number rise in the coming years,” said Andrea McKee, M.D., chair of the radiation oncology department at Lahey Hospital and Medical Center in Burlington, Mass. The Philips solution consists of several elements:Services Marketing – Consultative services and marketing support enables health systems to reach high-risk patients and their primary care physicians (PCPs), provide connections to patient advocacy and support organizations, information sources and access to materials for marketing their lung cancer screening services.Patient Management – “Control center” software tools allow providers to follow a set of customized clinical protocols and establish interfaces with other hospital systems (health information and radiology information systems [HIS/RIS], electronic medical records [EMR] and picture archive and communication systems [PACS]), providing clinical teams with a 360-degree view of patients. Customizable workflow tools also send timely and accurate notifications, and track participant history and touch points.Radiology Workflow – CT lung image review and reporting offers specialized radiology software tools which facilitate review and reporting of serial CT lung exams to identify and easily follow areas of concern.Physician Education Resources – Comprehensive online education portal to measure and report radiologist performance against a wide range of clinical cases, as well as structured education courses and other reference materials.

first_imgSingapore Airlines today announced a fourth flight connecting Brisbane to the world will commence operations in late May.From 28 May SQ265/266 will operate three times a week and will be serviced by a two class A330-300 aircraft. 06:55 Days of operation Departs Singapore Arrives Brisbane SQ 265 Monday, Thursday, Saturday Arrives Singapore Flight Number 18:00center_img Flight Number 16:45 Days of operation SQ 266 Monday, Thursday, Saturday 00:20 +1 The addition of the fourth flight, which will see another 285 seats servicing Brisbane, 30 Business class and 255 Economy class, represents an almost 15% increase in capacity for the Queensland city.Singapore Airlines Regional Vice President South West Pacific, Mr. Tiow Kor Tan said the addition of the fourth flight was due to the strength of the Brisbane market over the past 12 months.“Across the South West Pacific region we have experienced good loads and Brisbane has certainly been one of the stronger performers,” Mr Tan said.“Previously we have only operated a fourth flight into Brisbane on a temporary basis to cater for the peak seasons.“The decision to install a scheduled fourth flight is a reflection of our commitment to Queensland and will ensure we are providing more options for our passengers.“We are also investing in upgrading our SilverKris Lounge at Brisbane airport, which will be open by the time our fourth flight begins in May.“While the fourth flight will operate three times a week from May there is every chance, if Brisbane continues to perform as expected, that we would increase the frequency to daily later in the year.”The addition of the fourth flight into Brisbane is the second increase in capacity for the South West Pacific region in as many weeks after it was announced last week that Melbourne will welcome back the A380 for three months during the June –September peak.
