Cancer survivor and advocate Lance Armstrong delivered a keynote address this week before 2,000 dignitaries at the World Cancer Congress in Montréal.He announced that his Foundation was making a $500,000 commitment and entering into a three-year joint initiative with the Union for International Cancer Control (UICC) – Expanding Global Access to Essential Medicines and Technologies.“We believe improving access to essential medicines is crucial for helping cancer patients worldwide live longer, healthier lives, free from pain,” said Armstrong.During Armstrong’s presentation, Survivorship: Changing the Way the World Fights Cancer, he spoke about the importance of empowering patients to take control of their own health and health care, fighting the stigma that still surrounds cancer in many parts of the world and assisting in cancer patient transitions now that more people are surviving cancer.“I’m humbled to be in the presence of many of my personal heroes today, champions in the fight against cancer who have shared their wisdom and experience with me for 15 years,” said Armstrong. “They have profoundly influenced me and the work of the Lance Armstrong Foundation and I am forever grateful.”Speaking at the UICC World Cancer Congress, the organization’s CEO, Cary Adams, said, “The strength of UICC’s efforts is founded in our partnerships. We are delighted to announce our increased collaboration with the Lance Armstrong Foundation. We look forward to seeing the impact that our mutual efforts can have in enhancing global cancer control measures.”Since the Foundation expanded their efforts globally in 2009, Armstrong has been at the forefront of the first unified global movement to combat cancer around the world and the Foundation is making tremendous progress in that arena. The Foundation is presenting on the success of their global partnerships and projects during Congress sessions, including: How to Win Financial Support Through Corporate Partnerships Innovative Strategies to Empower Survivors in the Global Fight Against Cancer Shattering Global Perceptions of Cancer: How Awareness Campaigns are Changing the Course of This Disease Palliative Care Advocacy Through the Social MediaEarlier in the week, Foundation President and CEO Doug Ulman was re-elected to the UICC Board of Directors during the UICC General Assembly.The Foundation recently reported on the success of their anti-stigma campaigns in South Africa and Mexico with implementing partner John Snow, Inc. and announced during the Congress their plans to expand programs into Japan and China to diminish stigma and empower patients in those nations. The Foundation will collaborate with the American Cancer Society and the Health and Global Policy Institute on the Patient Empowerment Project in Japan.Hand in hand with barriers like stigma come lack of access to quality medical care and pain relief for many of the 28 million people affected by cancer throughout the world. The Foundation has worked tirelessly at the national and global level to help promote a shift in policy and funding — away from the traditional disease-centric approach and towards strengthening health systems that serve all the people.The Foundation is continuing its efforts to expand access to health and palliative care by investing $500,000 in a new three-year partnership with UICC. Expanding Global Access to Essential Medicines and Technologies, the initiative with UICC, will advance international advocacy to ensure targets for essential medicines at global and national levels; create an on-the-ground success story for access to essential medicines and elevate patient voices.The Foundation and UICC plan to set ambitious, but achievable targets for essential medicines. They are developing a replicable, cost-effective model for improving access to pain relief in collaboration with Partners in Health and the Global Access to Pain Relief Initiative, beginning with two hospitals in Haiti. They plan to elevate patient voices by providing key roles for cancer survivors at major conferences and in public awareness campaigns around the world.On Wed., Aug. 29, Armstrong also participated in A Conversation with Global Leaders on Cancer Survivorship hosted by The Cedars Cancer Institute at the McGill University Health Centre. The conversation, moderated by Ulman, included panelists Her Royal Highness Princess Dina Mired of Jordan, director general of the King Hussein Cancer Foundation, and Cary Adams, CEO, UICC. Among the 300 guests were more than 100 cancer survivors, distinguished members of the Canadian cancer community and friends and supporters from across the globe. Proceeds from the evening benefit the Lance Armstrong Foundation, the Cedars Cancer Institute and the UICC.During the event, Ulman announced a new partnership between the Foundation and The Cedars Cancer Institute that will bring Cancer Transitions, a program designed to support, educate and empower people with cancer in the transitional period after treatment is over, to patients of Cedars.“As a three-time cancer survivor, I know first-hand what a difficult time this can be,” said Ulman. “Survivors are often left thinking, ‘I survived cancer. Now what?’ And they find themselves struggling to redefine ‘normal.’ Cancer Transitions can help survivors address all those feelings and set them on the right course to a happy, productive life after cancer.”Cancer Transitions was developed in 2006 in partnership between the Cancer Support Community and the Lance Armstrong Foundation to help survivors move beyond treatment. The six-week series incorporates support groups, education, nutrition and physical exercise, as well as addressing other medical management, psychosocial and quality of life issues. The program also provides survivors with practical tools and resources to formulate a personal action plan for survivorship beyond their participation in Cancer Transitions.The Lance Armstrong Foundation has spent the last two years adapting the program for use in Canada. The Foundation, The Cancer Support Community and the British Columbia Cancer Agency partnered together to pilot the program in 17 cities from British Columbia to Ontario and already nearly 400 Canadians have participated in the program.

Mumbai: Filmmaker Onir recently said that male actors in Bollywood are still insecure about playing gay roles. The director said a film based on LGBTQ characters can get a mainstream release but “good actors” avoid such roles. “I have had many narrations with these mainstream male actors and they refused it. The fear of what it can become still holds them. And this is why I really have a lot of respect for all those actors who say yes to these roles,” Onir said at a panel discussion at an event.

Dhaliwal, who wrote Ek Ladki Ko Dekha To Aisa Laga, urged mainstream male stars to take up well-written gay characters. “It is all about business and what works is what sells and reaches the audience. Because of the patriarchy we live in, the masculine ego is really fragile and that’s the reason they refuse to take up gay characters,” Dhaliwal added.

New Delhi: A Delhi court Wednesday asked AAP’s Lok Sabha candidate from East Delhi, Atishi Marlena, to prove her locus standi for filing a petition against her BJP rival Gautam Gambhir for allegedly enrolling as a voter in two assembly segments. Metropolitan Magistrate Viplav Dabas directed the Aam Aadmi Party (AAP) leader to file more documents to prove her locus standi (the right to bring an action or to appear in a court) after her counsel said there was a “prima facie” case against Gambhir.

If he has committed any wrong, what’s your locus,” the court asked. Advocate Karuna Nundy, appearing for Marlena, told the court that Gambhir was a “dead man walking. He is not eligible to vote and will be disqualified as a candidate”. “Even if he wins, people of East Delhi should not be saddled with an MP who has no chance of survival in the near future. Voters should not be made to suffer,” she told the court. Also Read – More good air days in Delhi due to Centre’s steps: Javadekar The court has posted the matter for further hearing on May 6, six days before Delhi goes to polls. The plea, filed by advocate Mohd Irshad on Thursday, alleged that Gambhir has enrolled “deliberately” and “illegally” as a voter in Karol Bagh and Rajinder Nagar assembly segments. The petition further alleged that Gambhir has provided false information in his nomination papers, accompanying affidavit and other documents preceding voter screening and registration in order to be seen as qualified to contest elections and potentially secure membership of the parliament. Marlena has said in the plea that the details of Gambhir’s registration in the constituencies were available online on the Election Commission’s National Voters’ Service Portal. The plea has sought directions to the Delhi Police to investigate offences under sections 17 and 31 of the Representation of People Act (RPA), 1950, and section 125A (penalty for filing false affidavit) of RPA, 1951. Section 17 of the RPA, provides that no person is entitled to be enrolled as a voter in more than one constituency and its violation is a criminal offence punishable with maximum of one year imprisonment. Section 31 of the Act makes false declaration in the matter of inclusion or exclusion of voter rolls punishable with up to one year in prison. “It is clear that the Gambhir has made and continues to provide false information/statements/declarations to the relevant authorities like the Election Commission of India in order to obtain and retain enrolments as a voter in two constituencies,” the plea alleged. Both Marlena and Gambhir filed their nomination papers last week.
13 December 2007Noting that this is a “critical point” regarding the deployment of an African Union-United Nations peacekeeping force in the war-ravaged Darfur region of Sudan, Secretary-General appealed for the world to step up its support for the mission. To deploy the force as soon as possible, “this requires capabilities on the ground – capabilities which we need UN Member States to provide, but which is still dangerously lacking,” he said in a message to the three-day World Summit of Nobel Peace Prize laureates in Rome.Most strikingly, Mr. Ban pointed out, is the lack of helicopters. “In the past weeks and months, I have contacted, personally, every possible contributor of helicopters – in the Americas, in Europe, in Asia. And yet, not one helicopter has been made available yet.”He urged governments – in regions such as Europe, Asia and the Americas where thousands of different types of military helicopters exist – to bolster their support for the AU-UN Mission in Darfur (UNAMID).In his message, the Secretary-General also congratulated United States actors George Clooney and Don Cheadle, who both received the 2007 Peace Summit Award for their efforts to raise awareness about the humanitarian suffering in Darfur.Earlier this week, the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and former US Vice-President Al Gore accepted this year’s Nobel Peace Prize at a ceremony in Oslo, Norway.Meanwhile, Assistant Secretary-General for Peacekeeping Operations Edmond Mulet briefed the Security Council on some of the latest developments in preparing the deployment of UNAMID, which has been hampered in part by a series of obstacles raised by the Sudanese Government.Mr. Mulet told reporters later that some mission personnel are already in place in Darfur as UNAMID gets ready to take over on 1 January next year from the existing but under-resourced AU mission known as AMIS.He said that while the UN has reached agreement with the Government on some technical issues relating to the provision of land and equipment, more concessions are needed so that UNAMID can fully deploy. Further consultations between the world body and Khartoum are expected over the next week. The Government has previously not made clear it supports the presence of some non-African units in UNAMID, and Mr. Mulet said the UN is still waiting for an answer on that question.
3 March 2008This year must be devoted to helping the “bottom billion” of the world’s poorest to tap into global economic growth, Secretary General Ban Ki-moon told the United Nations Conference on Trade and Development (UNCTAD) today. “In a globalizing world, we require an international economic environment that fosters development,” Mr. Ban said to UNCTAD’s Executive Committee, which is gearing up for this April’s UNCTAD-XII Conference in Accra, Ghana.“The Accra Conference can advance this aim by galvanizing support for a more development-friendly global economic, trading and financial system. Accra must also articulate an effective strategy to leverage globalization, trade and investment for poverty reduction and economic growth,” he added. The Conference, Mr. Ban continued, must also help build consensus on how the current impasse in the Doha Round of negotiations on international free trade can be broken. The talks stalled last year amid disputes between developed and developing countries over agricultural subsidies.Established in 1964, UNCTAD promotes the integration of developing countries into the world economy. It also helps shape policy debates on development, with a focus on ensuring that domestic policies and international action are mutually supportive in bringing about sustainable growth.Noting that 2008 is a pivotal year in the effort to meet the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), which aim to reduce extreme poverty and other global ills by 2015, Mr. Ban said that UNCTAD-XII must promote financial policies that help meet the MDGs in sub-Saharan Africa, in particular, as a matter of urgency.The Secretary-General said he will be spending much of this year rallying support for development initiatives in national capitals and at international institutions. Mr. Ban added that he is also striving to increase the UN’s own effectiveness in advancing its development priorities, and had already formulated recommendations in key areas such as scaling up of activities in support of the MDGs, and bolstering economic development, trade and finance. “Today’s UN cannot simply champion development, it must deliver every day on its promises,” he said.While in Geneva today, the Secretary-General also conducted a number of bilateral discussions, meeting with Serbian Foreign Minister Vuk Jeremic, French Foreign Minister Bernard Kouchner and Norwegian Foreign Minister Jonas Gahr Store among other national officials.
Bert Koenders, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Côte d’Ivoire, called on the country’s political parties and wider population to ensure that the election is held in a peaceful environment, his spokesperson told reporters today in Abidjan.Mr. Koenders – who is scheduled to brief Security Council members later today on the pre-election situation – stressed that Ivorians must “avoid all useless provocation and excesses which could prove prejudicial to the electoral process,” the spokesperson said.The Special Representative, who also heads the UN peacekeeping mission (UNOCI), said that the violent incidents involving the armed men surrounding candidates were nevertheless isolated and the overall electoral campaign has been generally calm.UNOCI has transported ballot papers, tally sheets, stocks of indelible ink and other printed materials by road and air from warehouses in both Abidjan and Yamoussoukro, the capital, to departmental electoral centres.Materials have already been sent to Boundiali, Kouibly and Tengréla, UNOCI reported, with convoys slated to reach 14 other locations between now and Sunday.The mission’s electoral support is being carried out with the cooperation of the UN Development Programme (UNDP) and the UN Office of Project Services (UNOPS).Since Monday, UNOCI military contingents have also transported about 6,000 Ivorian troops to various locations to ensure security for the polls.Ivorians will vote for seats in the 225-member National Assembly, almost a year after Alassane Ouattara won a disputed presidential run-off election that led to months of deadly violence when the runner-up and incumbent Laurent Gbagbo refused to step down.Mr. Gbagbo was later captured by security forces and has since been transported to The Hague in the Netherlands to face trial at the International Criminal Court (ICC) on charges of crimes against humanity for his alleged role in the post-election violence.Cote 8 December 2011Three days before Ivorians go to the polls to vote in crucial parliamentary elections, the top United Nations official in the West African country has expressed concern over a series of violent incidents provoked by armed men surrounding some of the candidates.
VANCOUVER – Taseko Mines Ltd.(TSX:TKO) said Thursday that problems at its Gibraltar mine have forced temporary changes that will reduce copper production and increase costs in the short term.The company said it has temporarily shifted operations to lower-grade ore deep in the open pit mine due to due to stability issues along higher walls.“The recent pit wall movement, which was relatively minor, has resulted in plan adjustments which will impact copper production and costs in the short-term,” Taseko president and chief executive Russell Hallbauer said in a statement.“In conjunction with this event, the longer ore haul out of the bottom of the pit has affected our truck fleet productivities, increasing haulage costs.”Taseko said it produced 35.4 million pounds of copper and 650,000 pounds of molybdenum at its Gibraltar Mine in the third quarter. Sales for the three-month period totalled 38.1 million pounds of copper and 700,000 pounds of molybdenum.The company said the quantity of ore mined in the third quarter was as planned, but the grade was below forecast.“This is a temporary, cyclical situation which will be alleviated when operations transition back to the upper benches of the Granite Pit in the next few weeks,” Hallbauer said.“We are currently reviewing alternative mining plans for 2015, with the goal of maintaining a healthy profit margin and cash flow.”Hallbauer also said the company extended its copper hedging program through the first quarter of 2015.“We are now protected at US$2.75 per pound in the fourth quarter and US$3.00 per pound in the first quarter for roughly one half of our share of Gibraltar copper production,” he said.“We will look for opportunities to extend the put options beyond the first quarter 2015.”Taseko owns a 75 per cent stake in the Gibraltar mine, while Cariboo Copper Corp. owns the remaining 25 per cent.Taseko shares fell two cents shortly after the announcement to $1.87 on the Toronto Stock Exchange. by The Canadian Press Posted Oct 9, 2014 7:59 am MDT Taseko says adjustments at Gilbraltar mine will reduce copper output temporarily AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email
HALIFAX – An official with a metal fabrication plant that employs up to 100 people in rural Nova Scotia says the company has no immediate plan to leave the community, despite speculation on its future.DSME Trenton Ltd. says in a statement that it is trying to find a third investor in the plant in Trenton.The provincial government has a 49-per-cent stake in the operation.The company says it is actively seeking new projects and has been approached by large wind turbine manufacturers in recent weeks, companies in the oil and gas sector, and firms in the steel fabrication sector.On Thursday, Premier Stephen McNeil said the government was told the company is looking for new contracts or a buyer for the plant, but it hadn’t heard anything more.A media report this week said the company was selling off inventory in anticipation of a shutdown.In its statement, the company says it was addressing news and rumours about DSME Trenton pulling out of Nova Scotia.“There is potential for new projects in all industries and DSME Trenton continues to be optimistic,” it says.“When entering new industries, challenges are faced and thus DSME Trenton is working to find a third investor in the plant to create more opportunity. It is not in the immediate plan for the company to leave its Trenton home and business will develop to offer further well-paying jobs in the community.”Business Minister Mark Furey said Thursday he also wasn’t aware of any plans to shutter the facility, adding that the province has a representative on the board of directors who is made aware of the day-to-day operations.He said he didn’t believe the company was selling off inventory, adding that a cleanup was being done at the plant which may have involved old steel being removed.There are protections in place for ensuring equipment at the plant isn’t removed without some compensation going to the province if it closes, Furey said.The province’s former NDP government announced it was taking a 49 per cent equity stake in the plant in 2010 as part of a $90-million refit of the former TrentonWorks railcar plant after it was bought by DSME, a subsidiary of Korean-owned Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering Ltd. The province committed $60 million to the enterprise.The plan was for DSME Trenton to eventually develop the capacity to produce 250 wind turbine towers and 200 blade sets per year.

AMERICAN NINJA WARRIOR — “Las Vegas Finals” — Pictured: Isaac Caldiero — (Photo by: David Becker/NBC) Press ReleaseIsaac Caldiero made history as the first athlete to win NBC’s “American Ninja Warrior.” Since the show began in 2009, more than 3,500 contestants of the 70,000 applicants have competed over the seven seasons. To date, Caldiero is the only one to master all four heart-racing stages, taking home the $1 million dollar prize and title as the “First American Ninja Warrior.”In 1997, at the age of 15, a good friend introduced Caldiero to climbing and he was instantly addicted. It had become his passion and life’s pursuit. The skills and strength he gained from climbing ultimately put him above his competition and at the top of Mt. Midoriyama.A big part of Caldiero’s passion for climbing involves scouting new areas. With the support of his sponsors, he has played an important role in the establishment of some of the most nationally-recognized climbing destinations throughout American, Canada, Europe and Asia, including Joe’s Valley here in Emery County. These areas are now visited and enjoyed by climbers from all over the world.Since winning “American Ninja Warrior,” Caldiero has become a motivational speaker for youth. He has given his presentation all over the world and will share it with local youth at two assemblies to take place during the Joe’s Valley Bouldering Festival. Although he will make many appearances during the weekend, the best time to snag some meet and greet time with Caldiero will be Thursday evening, Sept. 26 at 5 p.m. at the Castle Dale Fairgrounds (75 South 400 East in Castle Dale). Caldiero will be signing posters and visiting with those who attend. You can also test your skills on the B4 Adventure Ninjaline Course that will be set up thanks to generous sponsors like Magnuson Lumber and Castle Dale City.Also, don’t miss Caldiero’s attempt to ride a steer for the first time at the Rhino Skin Rodeo Games.

OSU freshman midfielder Arden Holden (5) passes the ball during a game against Bucknell on Sept. 13 at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. OSU won 2-0. Credit: Carlee Frank / For The LanternBig Ten conference play is set to begin in Columbus on Thursday evening as the No. 20 Ohio State women’s soccer team is scheduled to host the Minnesota Gophers at Jesse Owens Memorial Stadium. On Sunday afternoon, the Buckeyes are slated to take on the Wisconsin Badgers in game two of Big Ten play.The Buckeyes enter Thursday’s tilt at 5-1-1 on the season.OSU suffered its first loss of the season last weekend to West Virginia, but junior forward Nichelle Prince said she thinks the loss to the Mountaineers was a learning lesson for the team as it prepares to tackle the second half of its season.“I think it just made us realize that we still have a lot to work on,” Prince said. “We did have a good out-of-conference season but there is still a lot we need to do if we want to become Big Ten Champions and make it far into NCAAs.”Walker also said that, despite having just one loss, it is clear that the team has work to do.“There is a fine line in encouraging your players to be decision-makers and also getting them to play in symphony,” Walker said.The team’s strong start has come despite suffering a few injuries, but OSU coach Lori Walker said the Scarlet and Gray were prepared to handle those type of setbacks. “Any time a player gets injured it certainly changes your dynamic,” Walker said. “It’s one of those things we talk about in preseason, is that the starting line up at the beginning of the year, is never going to be the same at the end of the year. We try and get our players to think in those terms, and know they are always one ankle sprain away from having a role change. You just roll with it at this point in the season.”Walker said that with conference play now starting, the team will “reset” itself after seven hard-fought matches to start 2015.“Our record right now in the conference is 0-0-0, and so we’re perfect and that’s awesome,” she said. “We want to go into the conference play with that mentality of just getting after it with a clean slate.”Although the Buckeyes have a clean slate, Walker knows it might not stay that way for long due to the quality of teams in their conference. “There’s never an easy game in the Big Ten, and it becomes a real grind,” she said. “Just taking them one at a time as they come, and every team presents a different set of problems and we just have to be ready to play chess.”The Buckeyes are 4-1-0 at home and look to keep that success at home against the Gophers and Badgers.For that to continue, Walker said it will depend on the team’s attention to detail.“The little details add up to the big ones. Soccer is a thinking woman’s game and we want our players to be able to dissect what is the team doing, but while they’re doing that they can’t lose track of what the littlest details are,” she said.The Buckeyes and the Gophers are set to square off at 7:30 p.m., while the Badgers are scheduled to come to town for a noon match.
We already knew that Avatar was set to be a trilogy of movies, but director James Cameron has decided/realized that three films isn’t enough. So, there’s going to be four instead.Fox Studios is more than happy to announce such news seeing as the first Avatar movie is the highest grossing movie of all time. Three more of those, if the quality remains high, is going to earn the studio and Cameron a lot of money. They will have to wait for the profits though, as Avatar 2 isn’t set to reach movie theaters until December 2016.Just like The Lord of the Rings trilogy, though, the sequels will come thick and fast after that. Avatar 3 will release in December 2017 and Avatar 4 will arrive December 2018. To achieve that Cameron will begin shooting all three movies back-to-back next year. That should ensure any storylines carried across the three movies remains consistent and recurring roles keep the same actors. And apparently Sigourney Weaver will star even though she died in the first movie.Cameron wrote the first movie, but has called in four screenwriters to help with the sequels. There were originally only meant to be two additional movies, but Cameron says there’s just too much story to fit in so he had to add one. Avatar fans won’t be complaining about that at all.The first movie set a new bar in terms of visual quality, and the sequels could raise that bar even higher. As far back as 2011 Cameron was talking about 60fps 3D for use in Avatar 2. We’ve already seen Peter Jackson use 48fps for the filming of The Hobbit, so it will be interesting to see how good Avatar 2 looks come December 2016.
PENDLETON, Ore. (AP) — A dozen or so strangers braved the cold on a Thursday night in December to build snowmen in Billy Larsen’s front yard.That evening had been tough for 6-year-old Billy, who has autism. He learned that school was canceled the next morning because of weather and that meant his Christmas party at Sherwood Heights Elementary School wouldn’t happen either. Change is often difficult for children with autism and the first-grader took it hard, reported the East Oregonian (http://bit.ly/2h3kgx4).After her son and husband went to bed, Holli Larsen tried to think of ways to cheer up her son. He loves snowmen, she thought. He would smile if he looked out the window the next morning and saw a snowman. Building one herself, however, was problematic for several reasons — a sleeping husband who needed to get up early for his job and the chance of Billy awakening. Plus, she admitted, she was exhausted and didn’t feel like getting wet and cold.On a whim, Holli posted a message to the Real Pendleton Classifieds Facebook page that she would pay $20 to anyone who would come and “build my special need son a snowman right now. Want him to be surprised in morning. School was canceled tomorrow & Christmas parties, etc. This may help him.”Jared Wright and two buddies were sitting at McDonalds at the time. One of his friends saw the post and said, “Hey Jared, you can go make twenty bucks for gas.” Wright decided to head over, but on the way across town decided not to take the money because, well, “Christmas is a time for giving.”

Turo: Save $30 on any car rental Read Google Home Hub review Comments Read Lenovo Smart Clock review Angela Lang/CNET Sarah Tew/CNET An Echo Dot makes a fine match for any Fire edition TV, because you can use the latter to say things like, “Alexa, turn on the TV.” Right now, the 24-inch Insignia Fire TV Edition starts at just $100, while the 32-inch Toshiba Fire TV Editions is on sale for $130. Just add any Fire TV Edition to your cart, then add a third-gen Echo Dot, and presto: The latter is free. I thought this might be a mistake, but, no, the weirdly named HP Laptop 15t Value is indeed quite the value at this price. Specs include an Intel Core i7 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB solid-state drive and a 15.6-inch display. However, I strongly recommend paying an extra $50 to upgrade that display to FHD (1,920×1,080), because you’re not likely to be happy with the native 1,366×768 resolution.

Oooh, ahhh, indeed. At $250, the compact Rylo dual-lens camera is selling for its lowest price yet. And for an extra $50, you can get the bundle that includes the waterproof housing.This deal runs through Sept. 3; it usually costs $500. Turo is kind of like Uber meets Airbnb: You borrow someone’s car, but you do all the driving. I’ve used it many times and found it a great alternative to traditional car-rental services — in part because you get to choose exactly the vehicle you want (not just, say, “midsize”) and in part because you can often do pickup and dropoff right outside baggage claim.Between now and Sept. 1, the first 300 people to check out can get $30 off any Turo rental with promo code LDW30. Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only “major” service that delivers lossless audio — meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better. Want to see (er, hear) the difference for yourself? Grab this excellent extended trial while you can. It’s just $6 for three months, and it’s good for up to six listeners. Gaming Sarah Tew/CNET Sarah Tew/CNET Boost Mobile $59 at eBay JBL Soundgear wearable speaker: $90 (save $160) The problem with most entry-level laptops: They come with mechanical hard drives. That makes for a mighty slow Windows experience. This Lenovo model features a 128GB solid-state drive, so it should be pretty quick to boot and load software, even with its basic processor. Plus, it has a DVD-burner! That’s not something you see in many modern laptops, especially at this price. Use promo code 19LABOR10 to get an unusually good deal on JBL’s interesting hybrid product — not quite headphones, and not quite a traditional speaker, but something you wear like neckphones to listen to music on the go.

Wait — no, I’m not. As much as I respect the original intent of the holiday (which became official back in 1894), to most of us, it’s just a bonus day off — one that’s blissfully tacked onto a weekend. So, yeah, stores; go ahead, run your sales. I’m listening. Perhaps unsurprisingly, Labor Day doesn’t bring out bargains to compete with the likes of Black Friday (which will be here before you know it), but there are definitely some sales worth your time.For example:We’ve rounded up the best Labor Day mattress deals.We’ve also gathered the best Labor Day laptop deals at Best Buy.The 2019 Vizio P Series Quantum is back under $999.Be sure to check out Amazon’s roughly three dozen Labor Day deals on TVs and audio.

The shares of SpiceJet, Jet Airways and Indigo-owner Interglobe Aviation rose on the BSE in response to the government clearing the much-awaited new civil aviation policy, including relaxing the contentious 5/20 rule.The InterGlobe Aviation stock was trading at Rs. 1,020 at around 12.47 p.m. on Wednesday, up 3.11 percent. Jet Airways and SpiceJet shares were trading at Rs. 569.60 and Rs. 66.70 a piece, up 1.75 percent and 4.21 percent, respectively, around the same time.The 5/20 aviation rule has been partially done away with. Domestic airlines will not have to wait for five years to fly overseas, while the stipulation for carriers to have a fleet of minimum 20 aircraft to begin international operations has been retained, DNA reported.Regional airfares will now be capped at Rs. 2,500 for one-hour flights, whereas for a 30-minute flight, the airfares would be capped at Rs. 1,200.There would be a new “window” for all aviation-related complaints and transactions, the Indian Express reported. The other passenger-friendly measure which has been introduced is the two percent levy on all air tickets that would fund for the regional connectivity scheme. Airstrips will be restored with a cap of Rs. 50 crore through Airports Authority of India (AAI). The government has also given the nod for carriers to have a code-sharing agreement with international carriers for any destination within the country. The Modi-led NDA government had unveiled the draft civil aviation policy in November 2014 and then supplanted it with another one in October last year.
21 June 2018 file photo, a job applicant looks at job listings for the Riverside Hotel at a job fair hosted by Job News South Florida, in Sunrise, Florida, US. Photo: APThe US unemployment rate fell in September to 3.7 per cent, the lowest since 1969, when young men were being drafted to fight in Vietnam and the American auto industry and the space program were going full blast.The labor department reported Friday that the rate edged down from 3.9 per cent the month before as employers added 134,000 jobs — a figure that was probably depressed by the effects of Hurricane Florence in the South. Still, it extended an extraordinary 8½-year streak of monthly job growth, the longest on record.That run has added nearly 20 million people to the nation’s payrolls since the Great Recession, which cost nearly 9 million their jobs.The ultra-low jobless rate — the best in nearly 49 years — reflects a healthy economy driven by strong consumer and business spending. In fact, hiring is so strong that employers are having trouble filling openings and some are being forced to offer higher pay.Despite the similar unemployment rates, today’s economy is vastly different from that of 1969. Back then, one-third of Americans worked in manufacturing; now it is barely 9 percent. Strong economic growth back then was propelled by huge government spending on the Vietnam War and newly created Great Society social programs. And women were much less likely to work.In reporting September’s employment figures, the government revised sharply upward its estimate of hiring for July and August. So far this year, monthly job growth has averaged 208,000, compared with 182,000 last year.”The acceleration in job gains this year is extraordinary in an environment where firms are having great difficulty finding qualified candidates,” said Stephen Stanley, chief economist at Amherst Pierpont Securities.Most analysts blamed the slower pace of hiring last month on Florence, which struck North and South Carolina and closed thousands of businesses.The category that includes restaurants, hotels and casinos lost jobs for the first time since September 2017, when Hurricane Harvey hit the Houston area, and retailers last month shed 20,000 jobs. Many of those jobs are likely to bounce back in the coming months.Pay gains remain modest but are showing signs of accelerating. Average hourly pay in September rose 2.8 per cent from a year earlier.With unemployment so low, companies are facing intense pressure to raise pay to land workers. Amazon this week raised its minimum wage to $15 an hour.Paul Millman, chief executive of Chroma Technology, has struggled to find enough machine operators and engineers for his 135-person company, based in Bellows Falls, Vermont. It makes filters for handheld medical equipment, food safety test systems, and virtual reality headsets.The company is doubling the size of one of its plants and increasingly automating its assembly process because it is so hard-pressed to find employees. It has also started calling back people who previously applied for jobs but weren’t hired. That has resulted in two new hires.Financial markets were down sharply in afternoon trading, with the Dow Jones average falling 202 points in afternoon trading. Investors have grown concerned about higher interest rates and the effect they might have on the economy and the stock market.Friday’s jobs report will probably keep the Federal Reserve on track to raise short-term interest rates, economists said, with another increase expected in December.The economy does show some weak spots. Sales of existing homes have fallen over the past year, held back in part by higher mortgage rates. Auto sales have also slumped.Manufacturers, which are more dependent on foreign markets than other industries, added 18,000 jobs last month, a sign that president Donald Trump’s trade fight with China and other countries is having little effect on hiring.Still, should the tariffs remain fully in effect a year from now, roughly 300,000 jobs could be lost by then, according to Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Analytics.
On January 16, 2019 in Scottsdale, Arizona the air will go super-hot after hosting an outstanding collection of American and European vintage automobiles at the annual Scottsdale Auction organized by Worldwide Auctioneers. The exquisite offer of vehicles consigned for the auction promises to really warm the temperatures up.Headlining the auction is an outstanding 1925 Bugatti Type 35A Grand Prix, an iconic pre-war racing car. When this Bugatti model was first presented in 1924, it was clear it would be an ultimate Grand Prix racing piece for years to come.1925 Bugatti Type 35A. Photo courtesy Worldwide AuctioneersCar aficionados would further praise it for its stunning visual appeal. In fact, many consider this model to be one of the most beautiful race cars ever created.The model had its debut on the race track at the 1924 French Grand Prix, hosted that year in Lyons, but the Bugatti team ended 7th. The team struggled with tire problems, however, very soon the world would learn about the real powers of this dream machine.Bugatti Type 37 (left) and 35 (right) cars at the Cité de l’Automobile Museum, Mulhouse. Photo by Gabriela Ruellan CC BY-SA 3.0The 1924 Bugatti Type 35, which did not even need supercharging to speed up thanks to its super engine, would log 351 victories and nab more than 40 records within the first two years of its production. Successive models, visually tweaked from the original, continued appearing until the early 1930s.At the January 2019 auction, a wonderful example of 1925 Bugatti Type 35A sits at Lot number 55. The hammer is predicted to fall somewhere between $1.9 and $2.4 million.Bugatti Type 35C in racing trim. Photo by Helicop~commonswiki CC BY-SA 3.0The model in question is “documented by the American Bugatti club, with a roster of former keepers that includes Louis Chiron’s patron, Fred Hoffman,” according to the Worldwide Auctioneers.Also, it was “raced in period by Bugatti concessionaire, Jean Ollivier, with competition history that includes the Provence Grand Prix,” therefore it will be no wonder if all eyes get fixed on it once the preview and sales begin in mid-January.Its meticulous documentation includes all details of its restoration, and further proof the vehicle is super functional is that it journeyed some 4,000 miles around Europe in 2017.1958 Alfa Romeo 1900 Sport.Those not so into Bugatti racing models have the opportunity to peek-a-boo at other remarkable machines consigned for the 2019 Scottsdale Auction.One of the many other gems includes a 1959 Mercedes-Benz 300SL Roadster, estimated to hit at least $1 million on auction day. With only three previous owners, it is preserved almost in its full authenticity, both on the outside and on the inside.1959 Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster. Photo by Greg Gjerdingen CC 2.0Though this Mercedes-Benz model saw its debut in Switzerland some six decades ago, it still stands as one of the most prominent sports cars ever devised. Its appearance is avant-garde and timeless and its performances stand well even by today’s standards.This is due to the 300SL Roadster refined technical configuration, which among other parts includes its “SOHC, a fuel-injected 3.0-liter engine and improved fully-independent suspension,” writes Worldwide Auctioneers.1959 Mercedes Benz 300SL Roadster. Photo by Greg Gjerdingen CC 2.0Less than 2,000 such Mercedes-Benz sports models were released between 1957 and 1963, and ever since this car has remained an epitome of the era. As noted by the auction house: “It is one of few cars ever built that from no matter where you stand, every angle is pleasing to the eye.”Equally if not even more pleasing to the eyes of auction-goers will also be Lot number 15: a 1931 Packard 840 Deluxe Roadster, deemed as one of the best accomplishments of the Packard automobile company.The Packard automobile company released new car models that paraded the world from 1899, the year the company was founded, until 1956 when the last Packard concept car was conceived in their base in Detroit. The luxurious-looking, quiet yet powerful 840 Deluxe Roadster of their palette is expected to reach at least $300,000 on January 16th.And in case none of this catches the attention, which would be a very dull thing to say, auction-goers can opt-in between an array of other classics. Brands include vintage Alfa Romeo, Bentley, BMW, Rolls-Royce, Chevrolet and Jaguar models among others.“We are thrilled by the breadth and sheer quality of this year’s offering and very excited that some of the most significant of the many outstanding motorcars slated for the sale will be offered entirely without reserve,” said Principle and Chief Auctioneer Rod Egan in a statement.Read another story from us: The Sexiest Cars Alive – Rare Corvettes Through the AgesAll vehicles will be available to preview ahead of the auction, which begins at 5:00 pm on Wednesday, January 16th, 2019. Those in the mood for some bidding can register with an administration fee of $150 that includes two seats and a catalog for the sale. It will be a hot winter day in Arizona, for sure.
Advertisement News broke early this morning that former Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez had apparently committed suicide in his jail cell by attaching a bed sheet to a window and hanging himself.Less than a week ago, Hernandez was acquitted of a 2012 double murder in a jury trial, and a statement by the Massachusetts Department of Correction said he showed no signs of being a suicide risk. It’s the tragic end to a tragic life that left a wake of pain and tragedy to many that entered its path.Today, Colin pointed out the Hernandez story is one filled with opportunity and second chances. His flaws were overlooked at every stage of his life because of his rare athletic ability. And with all the opportunities, he chose to throw it all away. The end of his life was unexpected, but not entirely surprising.What Colin truly finds tragic are young people who never have opportunities in life, are abused, or born into horrible circumstances they can’t overcome. They didn’t choose that. Colin Cowherd reacts to Aaron Hernandez’s apparent suicide.via @TheHerdpic.twitter.com/lyWNPoApcP— FS1 (@FS1) April 19, 2017 Hernandez made his decisions. He inflicted the pain. In the end, he died the way he lived, violently.Here’s Colin’s full reaction:He chose a life of bullying, intimidating, and violently killing people. And when you live a harsh life like that, this is sometimes the outcome.”

PACStore is designed to improve clinician access to imaging data, enhance business continuity and reduce the IT storage and management burden of retaining imaging data over the long term.By incorporating a fully featured industry DICOM storage class server and HL7 interface, PACStore software fully integrates into existing healthcare IT infrastructures. It creates a central repository for imaging data with a single point of access. Data in the repository is automatically repositioned between different IT storage tiers during its lifetime to minimize storage costs. And because multiple copies of the data can be maintained in multiple geographic locations, the system improves business continuity and allows web-based access to DICOM images even when primary PACS systems are unavailable.PACStore’s DICOM Storage Server is at the heart of the new software. DICOM is a medical imaging industry standard, so any modality or PACS that can transmit DICOM can send data to PACStore. Additionally, clinical workstations can access data from PACStore via the DICOM protocol.The product’s support of the HL7 messaging interface, the standard for electronic health information exchange, enables the PACStore repository to be automatically updated with changes to patient data on the hospitals’ Health Care Information System / Radiology Information System (HCIS/RIS).For more information: www.bridgeheadsoftware.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Radiology Business | March 07, 2019 Carestream Health To Sell its Healthcare IT Business To Philips Carestream Health has signed an agr read more News | Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) | February 07, 2019 Connecticut, California Imaging Centers Deploy Ambra Cloud VNA Ambra Health announced that Naugatuck Valley Radiology and Insight Imaging are among the latest groups of leading… read more News | Archive Cloud Storage | December 20, 2018 IMS Announces Integration of Cloud Image Viewing Platform With Google Cloud International Medical Solutions (IMS) recently announced it will provide Google Cloud account users with the ability to… read more Related Content News | Vendor Neutral Archive (VNA) | September 04, 2018 Novarad Highest Rated in Customer Satisfaction on Gartner Peer Insights VNA Category Novarad Healthcare Enterprise Imaging has taken the highest rated spot on Gartner’s Peer Insights technology review… read more
