Cabinet to consider bill to give more teeth to NIA

first_imgNew Delhi: Seeking to give more teeth to the National Investigation Agency (NIA), the government plans to amend two laws to allow it to probe terrorist acts against Indians and Indian interests abroad. The Union cabinet will take a call on Monday on amending the NIA Act and the Unlawful Activities (Prevention) Act. The amendment bill could be introduced in Parliament this week during the ongoing Monsoon session. The amendments will also allow the NIA probe cybercrimes and cases of human trafficking, sources aware of the proposal said Sunday.

As of now, only organisations are designated as ‘terrorist organisations’. The NIA was set up in 2009 in the wake of the Mumbai terror attack that had claimed 166 lives. Since 2017, the Union Home Ministry has been considering the two laws to give more power to the NIA to meet fresh challenges, the sources pointed out.last_img read more

BC wants to be part of global resolution in opioid company bankruptcy

first_imgVANCOUVER — The British Columbia government says any proposed settlement from opioid manufacturer Purdue Pharma needs to include Canadian claims for the devastation created by the overdose crisis.Purdue, the maker of the pain drug OxyContin, filed for bankruptcy in the United States and proposed a multibillion-dollar plan to settle with thousands of state and local governments.B.C. Attorney General David Eby says the province has been monitoring the developments including a tentative agreement that proposes to resolve the claims as part of a global resolution.Eby says the province remains “ready and willing” to participate in the effort to achieve the resolution but if B.C. is not included in the process then the government will to continue its lawsuit that names Purdue and several other opioid makers.The province filed a proposed class-action lawsuit a year ago alleging drug manufactures falsely marketed opioids as less addictive than other pain medicines, triggering an overdose crisis that has killed thousands.Eby says if the company wants to achieve a global resolution then any proposed agreement needs to account for payment to Canadian claims.The Canadian Presslast_img read more

Doug Ford announces $40M for Ontario auto sector plan

WOODBRIDGE, Ont. — Ontario is putting $40 million over three years into a new plan for the auto sector, including funding for innovation and training.The money is part of a 10-year plan for strengthening the auto sector’s competitiveness, which comes as General Motors plans to shut down a plant in Oshawa, Ont., at the end of the year — a move that will see 2,600 workers lose their jobs.Economic Development Minister Todd Smith said part of the plan is aimed at workers like those at GM, who can be retrained and still work in the auto sector.“We want to give those auto workers an opportunity to get trained quickly,” he said. “Micro-credentialling is part of our plan, so they can get up to speed and not just continue jobs in the current wave of auto sector jobs, but in the automobile sector of the future.”A micro-credentials pilot will focus on targeted retraining for highly specific skills. The province will also modernize apprenticeship training, with the goal of making it more responsive to auto sector needs.The plan also strives to create a more competitive business climate, which includes removing some regulatory barriers, streamlining approvals and certification for auto manufacturing sites, reviewing the industrial electricity rate, and international promotion of Ontario’s auto sector.“Our government understands what auto companies need to thrive and prosper in our province,” said Premier Doug Ford. “This is like Christmas coming — us getting elected — to industries across the province. They’re as happy as anything. They actually have a business-minded government.”Ontario is the first province to allow on-road testing of autonomous vehicles, and the plan includes enabling the private sector to develop a province-wide network of autonomous vehicle infrastructure.As part of the $40 million, an automotive modernization program to help parts suppliers become more innovative will make $10 million available to small and medium suppliers, who can each qualify for up to $100,000 as long as the company itself matches the funds.Flavio Volpe, president of Automotive Parts Manufacturers’ Association, said the announcement mirrors what suppliers have been asking of government.“For the supply sector, what’s important is as long as the automakers stay here and make cars here and buy parts from us we’ve got a very healthy and efficient business,” he said.The president and CEO of Canadian Manufacturers and Exporters said the plan is an important step in creating a competitive business environment.“We are particularly pleased to see commitments focused on reducing the cost of manufacturing in Ontario and the openness to exploring investments supports for the manufacturing sector,” Dennis Darby said in a statement.“These two actions are critical to boost manufacturing investment in the province and improve the competitiveness of globally integrated sectors, including automotive.”Allison Jones, The Canadian Press read more

Nearly three months after the start of torrential rains, the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) and its partners are assisting millions of people across Bangladesh, India, Nepal and Pakistan still impacted by the resulting floods and landslides.According to the Indian Government, 2,614 people have died while 48 million have suffered as a result of flooding. In the hardest-hit state of Bihar, UNICEF, with Government support, is setting up 50 maternity health camps, two nutritional rehabilitation centres to treat severely malnourished children and over 250 alternative learning spaces for 60,000 students.Elsewhere in India, UNICEF and other organizations are providing emergency medical care, water purification supplies.

National Bank comfortable being part of Big 6 banks designated too big

by Ross Marowits, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 27, 2013 1:45 pm MDT National Bank ‘comfortable’ being part of Big 6 banks designated too big to fail AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email MONTREAL – National Bank is “comfortable” with being grouped as one of Canada’s six strategically important banks and meeting the higher capital requirements that accompany the designation, its CEO said Wednesday.Louis Vachon said the decision by regulators doesn’t change much at the Quebec bank, since it would have been held to the same standards as its five larger rivals.“Frankly, I’d rather be officially in than having the same standards and not being… officially (part) of the club,” he told the National Bank financial services conference.On Tuesday, the federal financial supervisor declared that Canada’s six largest banks were too big to fail and needed to be subjected to stricter supervision than their smaller peers.The Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions said the “systematically important” designation stems from a framework issued by the Basel committee on banking oversight in October that set out guidelines for assessing domestic financial institutions.Under the new OSFI requirement, the Bank of Montreal (TSX:BMO), Bank of Nova Scotia (TSX:BNS), Canadian Imperial Bank of Commerce (TSX:CM), National Bank of Canada (TSX:NA), Royal Bank of Canada (TSX:RY) and Toronto-Dominion Bank (TSX:TD) will be required to carry a larger capital buffer than other banks.Their Tier 1 capital ratio will have to be at least eight per cent as of Jan. 1, 2016, as compared with seven per cent for less important financial institutions.The OSFI changes are also designed to make Canada’s leading banks more bullet proof in the event of a financial crisis.Two credit ratings agencies have downgraded the Canadian banking system, but Standard & Poor’s rating for the National Bank suggested two Toronto banks on the list had a much higher probability of being bailed out during a crisis.Vachon called the designation a “binary decision.”“Either you are or you’re not and I think the decision yesterday of the government is that we were and we would expect ratings agencies — all three or four of them — to take note of that fact.”Meanwhile, Vachon called the recent mortgage pricing wars, in which at least one rival temporarily offered a five-year mortgage at 2.99 per cent, tame and more localized than last year.“At the end of the day it’s not undercutting price that will determine the winners and losers in the mortgage market,” he said. “It will be the quality of the customer experience, efficiency and a lot of that is tied to retraining your sales forces and deploying new technology.”Laurentian Bank (TSX:LB) chief executive Rejean Robitaille told the conference that it consciously decided not to chase volumes by following competitors who offered mortgages at rates similar to what it paid for five-year GICs.“I don’t have a Harvard degree,” said Robitaille. “I’m just a humble chartered accountant, but you can’t make a lot of money on this but you can have lots of potential new volumes.”Robitaille added he expects a “soft landing” in the Canadian real estate market rather than a dramatic downfall.“We think we have a very sound portfolio and we do not expect a dramatic downside on the housing market side. We expect a soft landing, we expect maybe prices to go a little bit lower.”He said the bank has protected itself from risk by limiting financing of development projects to $30 million and requiring high levels of pre-sales and deposits.Meanwhile, TD Bank told the conference its wealth management and insurance businesses are performing well but do face several risks, including the possibility that the minority Ontario government will decrease auto insurance rates at the behest of the NDP.“There are some underlining factors in auto insurance in Ontario that are driving prices up high, such as fraud and it’s those things we need to attack and hopefully whatever they do, (they) phase it in over an appropriate period of time,” group head Mike Pedersen said.Pedersen said TD prefers to grow its insurance business organically but doesn’t foresee the federal government allowing banks to sell the product in their branches, even if there is a change of party in power.“I think the chances of that are extremely small and it’s probably more accurate to say not a snowball’s chance in hell,” he said.Earlier, CIBC’s chief financial officer said the bank wants to expand its wealth management business particularly in the United States rather than embark on a broader “transformational” acquisition.Kevin Glass said the bank would like the sector’s contribution to reach 15 per cent of overall earnings, up from the current level of 10 per cent achieved in 2012.He said the Toronto-based bank would be comfortable with a deal valued up to $800 million and that looking to the U.S. makes sense.“It fits that strategic sweet spot more closely and there is also an enormous amount of opportunities,” said Glass. read more

Indianapolis Colts Beat New York Giants in Preseason Duel

Image by AP Photo/Bill KostrounThe Indianapolis Colts have redeemed themselves after they were demolished 44-20 to the Buffalo Bills last week. Sunday night, the Colts improved the 1-1 in the preseason by putting away the suddenly banged-up New York Giants 20-12.Victor Cruz and David Baas, two major players on the Giants roster, were both hurt during the opening drive of the game.“[Cruz] jammed his heel and was sore,” coach Tom Coughlin said after game. “He runs to make a living and he’s obviously got an issue with the heel. Hopefully it is not going to be a long thing.”Giants’ wide receiver Hakeem Nicks, spoke to Cruz about his injury.“He said he felt fine,” Nicks said of Cruz. “I don’t really know … the details of what the injury was, but he said he was fine.”On the other hand, Colts quarterback Andrew Luck did a great job against the Giants. He threw for 107 yards and two touchdowns. Luck threw a 28-yard touchdown to Reggie Wayne and an 18-yard TD to T.Y. Hilton, leading the Colts to 17 points. Adam Vinatieri also helped with a 52-yard field goal in their 20-12 win. read more

Father of murdered Jodie Chesney praises his proud geek daughter as he

Hours later the body of a woman was found in the garden of her home in west London, and yesterday afternoon a teenager was stabbed to death in broad daylight in west Kensington.Witnesses described the victim being set upon by three or four men at around 2.15pm.A local businessman said there had been a number of skirmishes between rival gangs in recent weeks.Police are still investigating the circumstances of Jodie’s death, with detectives describing it as a “savage and evil attack”. Yousef Makki died in an attack in Greater Manchester A another 17-year-old, who has been charged with murder, was granted bail, but school pupils were warned they faced two years in jail if they gossiped online about the killing. The final time Peter Chesney spoke to his daughter, Jodie, was when she got up early last Friday morning to wish him a happy birthday – it would be anything but.Hours later, the teenager, who was described as being “kind to her very soul”, lay dying in a park, after being brutally stabbed in the back in an apparently random attack.As yet another teenager was knifed to death on the streets of the capital, Mr Chesney spoke out to appeal for the public’s help to bring his daughter’s killer to justice.In a heartbreaking interview, Mr Chesney described the assiduous A’ Level student, pianist and Explorer Scout as a “proud geek”, adding: “She was the nicest person any of us know.”He went on: “Everything about her was thoughtful and kind. She wouldn’t have done anything to deserve this. They have destroyed something beautiful. Jodie needs justice and we need justice.” Mr Chesney said: “Jodie’s friends have told us there was no altercation. My daughter was just sat in a park, minding her own business.”She was smart, her friends were nice people and they are all in bits too. They [the suspects] were sat near to Jodie and her friends and probably would have heard her laughter. They then left and came back and stabbed Jodie in the back.” “Normally there is a reason – whatever that reason may be and however perverse we think that reason is – the person that’s done this attempts to justify why they’ve done it, there is no reason that I can see here, it is completely motiveless.”Mr Chesney, who was wearing a purple ribbon pinned to his chest that was made by Jodie’s friends, said many of her peers are dying their hair purple in her honour. Jodie Chesney was stabbed to death in a park in east London Jodie Chesney visited Number 10 on Remembrance Sunday He went on: “There is no doubt about the ferocity, how violent it was. I have no words for the person that did this but more for people who might know something. If you have any heart and conscience, help the police. Give the person up.”Mr Chesney, said the whole family were in a “mess” and were struggling to cope with the brutality if what had happened to a “great girl”.He said Jodie’s death has torn the family apart saying: “Everyone is suffering because she was so good… everyone just can’t believe – why her? It is not one life deserves to be killed over another, but specifically her, she was so kind.” But the cycle of bloody violence has showed little sign of abating since, with 17-year-old grammar school boy, Yousef Makki, murdered in a Cheshire village, just hours later. On Thursday the bloodbath continued, with Met launching four murder investigations, including three where the victims were stabbed to death.On Wednesday afternoon, 26-year-old David Martinez died after being stabbed in Leyton, east London and early yesterday, 37-year-old man, who was stabbed at the weekend, also lost his fight for life.

David Martinez died in Leyton Jodie Chesney's family have been left devastated by her murder A teenager was stabbed to death in West Kensington Jodie had been playing music with friends near a children’s playground at Harold Hill, east London, on Friday when she was knifed in the back without warning.The random nature of the attack on decent, hard working and caring teenager, shocked the country. David Martinez died in Leyton A teenager was stabbed to death in West Kensington Jodie Chesney’s family have been left devastated by her murder Yousef Makki died in an attack in Greater Manchester Senior investigating officer Detective Chief Inspector Dave Whellams said up to four people could have been involved.He said: “I think day-by-day as the investigation progresses we get closer and closer to the truth, and closer to identifying who they are.”I believe there’s more than two of them involved, possibly up to four, and that one of them is black and one of them is white – definitely.”Of her murder, he said: “This is one of the worst that I have come across in a way because it is a 17-year-old girl who has done absolutely nothing to warrant this.

3D printing photo booth pops up in Japan

first_img3D printing is both gaining in popularity and getting cheaper to perform due to a growing number of printers hitting the market. As you’d expect, as those prices come down the number of areas 3D printing is used goes up. In Japan, 3D printing is being used in a new photo booth that produces a 3D model instead of a photograph.The OMOTE 3D photo booth works just like a typical booth with the only difference being the person stands rather than sits inside. You can choose to purchase a 10cm, 15cm, or 20cm model of yourself with prices ranging from $264 to $528. It’s certainly not cheap, but is definitely unique and the quality looks to be great based on the images of the models being produced. What isn’t clear is how the color is added. If it’s done by hand that certainly accounts for the high prices.The 3D photo booth isn’t a permanent fixture, instead it’s part of an exhibition in Harajuku called Eye of Gyre. The exhibition opens on November 24 and will run until January 14. If you want to use the booth you have to book in advance through the OMOTE 3D website.Although this is a very expensive concept, I could certainly see 3D models of people becoming an affordable addition to existing photo booths. If the price was right I bet a fair few people would choose to have a 3D model made posing with friends rather than just a bunch of images. Of course, the printing and painting would have to happen very quickly.Read more at OMOTE 3D and Spoon & Tamagolast_img read more

Pochettino refuses to judge Sarri for criticizing his players

first_imgAfter Maurizio Sarri’s attack on his Chelse players, manager Mauricio Pochettino refused to judge the Italian manager ahead of the Carabao Cup.The criticism that manager Maurizio Sarri has dedicated to his players after their latest defeat against Arsenal in the Premier League, was something that manager Mauricio Pochettino refuses to judge.In professional football, managers tend to take the emergency step in going after their players when they aren’t showing any type of reaction as negative results keep piling up.Chelse started the season quite well, they were even considered as a title contender during the first three months of the season but they are approaching a tipping point in which they could throw everything away in a single match.The Blues are about to play the second semifinal Carabao Cup match against Tottenham Hotspur, they urgently need a victory of at least two goals on Thursday and the Italian manager doesn’t know any other way to convince the players that they can actually reach the final.During the press conference ahead of the match against Chelsea, he was questioned about the criticism that Sarri directed at his players and refused to comment on another manager’s work ethic or strategy to motivate his footballers.Pochettino limited himself to mention what Gonzalo Higuain’s arrival could be like for Chelsea.’It’s his business’ – Pochettino refuses to judge Sarri for criticising Chelsea players https://t.co/Sl9aZtZzKt pic.twitter.com/Pl5EUj3VDI— Goal Nigeria (@GoalcomNigeria) January 23, 2019Ahead of this Thursday’s match, Mauricio Pochettino commented on Sarri’s strategy with his players but didn’t reveal much.The Argentine manager also spoke about the Blues’ possibility of maybe signing compatriot Gonzalo Higuain and how he could fit on Tottenham’s squad for this match in the Carabao Cup.“I cannot judge the words of a different manager. It’s his business and Chelsea’s business,” the Spurs boss told a news conference via Four Four Two.“We are talking about one subject. Every manager can have their opinion and it’s not my job to judge. What they are doing at a different club is their business and you need to respect that. It’s like here. For many people that don’t have the real situation that happens inside, [they] can talk.”“I don’t know what is going on but if he arrived in time to play, it’s going to be nice to see him,” he added.Mario Mandzukic, JuventusJuventus confirm Mario Mandzukic could leave this month Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Sporting director Fabio Paratici confirmed reports that Mario Mandzukic could leave Juventus for a move to an unnamed Qatari team.“Gonzalo is a top player like [Alvaro] Morata, or [Olivier] Giroud. For me, one or another that is going to play against us, it’s going to be tough because we are playing a very good team in Chelsea.”Three top @SpursOfficial players [Kane, Son and Alli] will miss the second-leg of their #CarabaoCup semi-final against @ChelseaFC – the first-leg ended 1-0 in favor of Spurs.Pochettino has defeated Sarri twice already this season, will he do it a third time? #Brilafm pic.twitter.com/9Zd25mI0bU— Sports Radio 88.9 Brila FM (@Brilafm889) January 20, 2019This Carabao Cup semifinal match will be a crucial point of the season for both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur, but both clubs are going through very different problems at the moment.Chelsea’s issues have a lot more to do with a lack of momentum and motivation, many of the players who started the season well have dramatically dropped their level of performance.Manager Maurizio Sarri has grown increasingly frustrated with several of his players, but especially Eden Hazard for being so distracted by the rumors that link him to a Real Madrid transfer.Tottenham’s issues are way more serious than Chelsea’s they have lost their star attacking-trio in the last couple of weeks, with Harry Kane and Dele Alli recovering from serious injuries, and Son Heung Min playing the Asian Cup with the South Korea National team for the next month.There is no way of knowing which if these clubs has the advantage for this second semifinal match, things are quite even right now and whoever wins will do it because of better fortune.Pochettino to mimic a Sarri tactic?

Mayoral Candidate Embry Stresses Experience Prosecuting Crime

first_imgBaltimore City mayoral candidate Elizabeth EmbryBaltimore City mayoral candidate Elizabeth Embry believes that her experience prosecuting some of the city’s most violent and horrific crimes gives her the edge needed to move the city forward.“It’s…having someone who has thought about the problems of the city and looked at how to do things differently. Not just tinker around the edges,” Embry said in an interview with the AFRO. “Really change the way we police. Really addressing the problem that especially young Black men in parts of the city have no other options than selling drugs,” she said.“What does that really mean? Sure, we know it, but what does that mean that the city is spending money, the city is investing in job training and bringing businesses to neighborhoods, making sure that there’s transportation from Sandtown and Cherry Hill to the job centers. Being focused on the disparities of the city and how to address them across policy areas and having that be front and center in everything that the city does.”Embry said that she would be rolling out detailed plans about what she would do as mayor in the coming weeks.Embry was a Deputy State’s Attorney under former City State’s Attorney Gregg L. Bernstein. She also worked for the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice and at the Maryland Department of Labor, Licensing and Regulation. She currently serves as Chief of the Criminal Division for the Attorney General – a job she is on leave from as she runs for mayor.She said that her experiences gave her the chance to see what happens when the system fails.“I’ve seen what can work, but what I’ve also seen in the criminal justice system is what happens when every system does not work. To me, the criminal justice system is what you see when everything fails. And as a prosecutor — I did overwhelmingly violent crimes, victim crimes — and so you’re dealing every day with victims and witnesses who are telling you these unbelievable stories of pain.”She also thinks that her past work gives her the management experience needed to run the city effectively. She said that under Bernstein, she helped run an office of over 400 employees.“We pretty significantly restructured around community prosecution, created a major investigation unit,” she said. She said they also created a conviction integrity unit that specialized in taking a second look at claims of innocence.“I think management is management. There’s nothing more complicated than being mayor, but I do think being a good manager is important and that means finding the best possible people from city government, from outside, from business, from nonprofits – finding the greatest people in the city and putting them in positions of leadership. Not just at the top levels but moving down. I’ve worked in government so I know there’s tremendous people already there, you just have to celebrate them,” she said.Like many of the men and women running for mayor, Embry said that it is time for a change.“We have some real big problems in the city. We have the highest rate of violence in the city’s history. We have a school system that despite some really hard-fought gains is really stumbling right now administratively to maintain those gains and to further grow and to replicate some of the best practices that are going on in schools. And our housing problem, despite some really good efforts by the city is going in the wrong direction,” she said.“So we have these big problems and we’re losing a little bit of ground instead of moving forward and we have to be moving forward quickly and aggressively.”If Embry’s name sounds familiar, it’s because her father, Robert C. Embry, is a former Baltimore City Housing Commissioner and also former chairman of the Baltimore City School Board. Her mother, Mary Ann Mears, is a local artist and works to promote arts education. Embry said that her roots mean she’s even more tied to the city of Baltimore.“I love this city. I’ve spent my life here. I was born and raised in Baltimore. And I’ve spent my career in public service and city government and state government,” she said.“There’s so many things that are right and positive in the city – institutions, community leaders, schools – so many things that are going right. But city hall is sort of a vacuum in the center of a lot of great things that are going on. They really need leadership in city hall that’s telling the good stories, bringing people together around the problem, the common solution. We need that center there.”last_img read more

IBM Bans Removable Storage Devices for Workers

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. Corporate espionage and cybersecurity are two critical issues these days for basically any company, but the risks have grown great enough now, that some, like IBM, are beginning to take more drastic measures.According to the Register, IBM is barring all types of removable storage for its employees. This includes USB drives, flash drives, SD cards, and external hard drives. “The possible financial and reputational damage from misplaced, lost, or misused removable portable storage devices must be minimized,” chief infosec officer, Shamla Naidoo said.According to Mashable, the reason for all this added security is the company’s big gains in computing tech. Ust last year, for instance, it unveiled a stupendously tiny computer, as well as a massive, $240 million joint AI research project with the Watson AI. This means that a good chunk of the IT folks at a major computing firm will likely be very, very frustrated, but such is the world we live in. The White House, among other organizations, are struggling to combat their own leaks. As tech has been democratized, so too has its potential to share those things we maybe shouldn’t be passing around. Like viruses. This change will take some time to implement, but Naidoo said that the organization “is expanding the practice of prohibiting data transfer to all removable portable storage devices (eg: USB, SD card, flash drive).” Adding that, “Over the next few weeks we [will be] implementing this policy worldwide… the possible financial and reputational damage from misplaced, lost or misused removable portable storage devices must be minimized.”Instead, IBM is pushing a digital syncing service. Though, it’s also possible that pushback from field workers who need to implement patches and via USB drives will likely get some exceptions.In any case, this is more corporate weirdness. It makes sense, but it also leaves that one lingering thought — how the hell did we get here?last_img read more

These are a key indicator in the diagnosis of degenerative brain diseases such as Alzheimer’s disease, epilepsy and depression.The software, Neuroreader, also can help identify changes in brain volume associated with concussions and other traumatic brain injuries.In use by a growing number of radiologists and neuroradiologists in the United States and Europe, Neuroreader analyzes magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) scans of patients’ brains and benchmarks them against a U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared database of healthy brain tissues in a matter of minutes. The software measures 45 specific structures within the brain.”Brain scans are typically analyzed visually by radiologists in what can be a time-consuming process, especially when changes in brain volume are slight,” said Jamila Ahdidan, Ph.D., founder and chief technology officer of Brainreader. “When looking for changes as small as hundredths of a millimeter, a software-driven analysis allows for these tiny changes to be detected in minutes.”For more than 30 years, since the development of the MRI scanner, physicians have ordered MRI scans of the brain to identify traumatized, diseased or atrophied tissue.”Radiologists rely on our human pattern recognition to identify tiny abnormalities in patients’ brains,” said Barton Branstetter, M.D., neuroradiologist at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, Presbyterian. “But even the best radiologist cannot precisely determine the volume of every structure in the brain without hours of intensive manual calculations. Neuroreader gives us easy, reliable, reproducible volume measurements and takes the guesswork out of analyzing structures in our patients’ brains.”  When treating a patient with signs of neurodegenerative diseases, the physician simply uploads the MR image to the Brainreader server. Neuroreader then analyzes the MRI scan and delivers a report in less than five minutes, indicating which brain structures’ volume are abnormal and to what extent. The software, which has an intuitive interface, produces an easily interpreted automated report.One of the brain structures analyzed is the hippocampus, the measurement of which is vital in determining a person’s ability to maintain strong cognitive function, according to neurologist and Alzheimer’s disease expert Majid Fotuhi, M.D., Ph.D., chairman, NeuroGrow Brain Fitness Center, McLean, Virginia, and Johns Hopkins Medicine, Baltimore.”Measuring the size of the hippocampus is the single most important factor in determining a person’s prognosis for having strong memory performance in the future,” said Fotuhi. “That’s where the Neuroreader comes in. It’s a major breakthrough in establishing an accurate measurement of this part of the brain.”According to Fotuhi, the Neuroreader will help him and his colleagues diagnose patients early for degenerative brain diseases and to create treatment plans that can not only slow the loss of brain tissue, but even to build it back up.  “In the future, I believe it will become routine for patients – and their doctors – to know the volume of their hippocampus and to have it monitored regularly,” he said.According to Dale E. Bredesen, M.D., Augustus Rose Professor of Neurology at UCLA, and founding president and CEO of the Buck Institute for Research on Aging: “Recent publications have offered some of the first evidence for functional, sustained improvement in neurodegenerative conditions, and the ability to quantitate multiple brain region volumes reproducibly and longitudinally will be critical as therapeutic programs are being refined. Neuroreader is perfectly suited for this.”Neuroreader, which is sold as software-as-a-service, is available to hospitals radiology and neuroradiology departments on a pay-per-use or subscription model tailored to the healthcare organization’s wishes.For more information: www.brainreader.net FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | August 01, 2019 | Jeff Zagoudis, Associate Editor FDA Issues Draft Guidance on Medical Device Safety in MRI Environment The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) issued a new draft guidance titled Testing and Labeling Medical Devices for… read more Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.

American photographer Chuck Fishman gestures in fr

first_img American photographer Chuck Fishman gestures in front of photos featured in an exhibition of his work, in Warsaw, Poland, Wednesday, Aug. 8, 2018. A new photo exhibition in Warsaw documents more than 40 years of Jewish life in Poland _ from the 1970s, when it appeared that Jewish life was on the verge of extinction, to an unexpected revival in the years following the fall of communism. The exhibition, “Re-Generation,” features dozens of black-and-white images taken by American photographer Chuck Fishman. (AP Photo/Czarek Sokolowski) by Vanessa Gera, The Associated Press Posted Aug 8, 2018 8:42 am PDT Last Updated Aug 8, 2018 at 2:40 pm PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email WARSAW, Poland – American photographer Chuck Fishman was just 21 when he began travelling behind the Iron Curtain in 1975 to document a Jewish community on the verge of dying out after centuries of existence in Poland. He couldn’t have foreseen a Jewish revival that came after the fall of communism in 1989.A new photo exhibition opened this week in Warsaw that brings together Fishman’s early documentation of a melancholy and declining Jewish world with the revival of traditions by the third and fourth generations after the Holocaust, a transformation that left him astounded.Titled “Re-Generation: Jewish Life in Poland,” the exhibition showing at the Jewish Historical Institute in Warsaw will run until Oct. 28 and then go to the Galicia Jewish Museum in Krakow for several more months.Fishman, now 65, told The Associated Press on Wednesday that his motivation for documenting Poland’s Jews in the 1970s and 1980s was to record their history before the centuries-old Jewish community died out completely.On the eve of the Holocaust, Polish Jews numbered around 3.3 million, the largest community in Europe. Most were killed by Nazi Germany, while post-war violence and an anti-Semitic campaign by the Polish communist regime in 1968 forced thousands of the survivors and their children into exile.“It was supposed to be the last of 1,000 years of Polish Jewish life. That’s what everyone was saying — everyone,” Fishman said. “And if it was not for the fall of communism, it would have been the end.”Fishman did five reporting trips to Poland from 1975-1983, often to cover other historical events, like the first visit of Polish Pope John Paul II to his homeland in 1979 and the rise in the 1980s of Lech Walesa’s anti-communist Solidarity movement. On those trips he also turned his camera on Yiddish-speaking Holocaust survivors who gathered in derelict buildings to pray together. At the time, Jewish life took place in private because of fears of discrimination.In some cases he managed to capture those praying during Sabbath services. While some opposed him taking pictures on the Sabbath, a violation of Jewish law, Fishman recalled that others were willing to overlook it.“I was this nice Jewish boy from America,” Fishman said, recalling how the sympathetic worshippers with non-verbal language seemed to be saying: “leave him alone. What’s the difference? When we’re gone there’s nothing here.”After a 30-year absence, he returned again to Poland in 2013 — a span of time in which communism collapsed and Poland joined the European Union and NATO. He was blown away by the new wealth of the capitalist era — the ATMs and luxury cars and everything else that had transformed the country — and by an optimistic and growing generation of Jewish families who finally had rabbis and who felt comfortable about celebrating their traditions openly.In some cases, Poles learned of Jewish roots in deathbed confessions of relatives who finally felt that it was safe to pass on their secrets.While the numbers of Jews is small, perhaps no more than 20,000 people among 38 million, Poland now has renovated synagogues, Jewish street festivals, a Jewish school, kosher restaurants and even Jewish arrivals from the U.S. and Israel.“Coming back was beyond trippy,” said Fishman, who lives in the New York area. “Everything was astounding to me.”Photos from Fishman’s first trip to Poland were featured in a 1977 book, “Polish Jews: the Final Chapter.” But most of the photos on display in Warsaw now had never been published in print. During communism he made a point of never publishing images of young Polish Jews, fearing that to identify them publicly could have negative repercussions for them.All of Fishman’s photos are in black-and-white and were shot with film and developed by him in his dark room, something that creates a feeling of consistency in the collection despite spanning 43 years and radically different political systems.center_img Photo exhibit documents revival of Polish Jewish lifelast_img read more
