Jury to resume deliberations at trial of father accused of murdering daughter

first_imgST. JOHN’S, N.L. — A Newfoundland jury is expected to resume deliberations this morning at the trial of a man accused of the first-degree murder of his five-year-old daughter.Trent Butt is accused in the death of his daughter Quinn at his Carbonear, N.L., home in April 2016.After closing arguments and the judge’s charge Thursday, the jury deliberated for about four hours before retiring for the evening.Butt testified at the St. John’s, N.L., trial that he did not remember killing Quinn, but said he found himself over her body and concluded he must have suffocated her.Crown lawyer Lloyd Strickland said the killing was a calculated plan to inflict suffering on her mother, his estranged wife.But Butt’s lawyer, Derek Hogan, told the court there was no way to know Butt’s thought process on the night Quinn was killed.The jury is being asked to decide whether the death was planned and deliberate, which would mean Butt is guilty of first-degree murder, or if he is guilty of a lesser charge.In his charge to the jury, Justice Donald Burrage of the provincial supreme court asked jurors to put aside their emotions while considering the case’s distressing evidence.“This has proven to be an emotionally charged trial. A man stands charged with the first-degree murder of his own daughter,” Burrage said.“You must put aside any feelings of emotion you may harbour, consider the evidence with an open mind and make your decision without sympathy, prejudice or fear.”Holly McKenzie-Sutter, The Canadian Presslast_img read more

UNbacked group sounds alarm on deadly violence in eastern DR Congo

In a communiqué, members of the International Facilitation – comprising Alan Doss, the Secretary-General’s Special Representative to the DRC, as well as officials from the African Union (AU), the Great Lakes Conference, the European Union (EU) and the United States – stressed their commitment to ending fighting in eastern DRC and the Great Lakes region. They also voiced their support of the DRC’s sovereignty, territorial integrity and legitimate institutions.“The International Facilitation calls on all signatories to scrupulously respect the provisions of the Actes d’engagement, in particular the immediate cessation of hostilities and their involvement in the restoration of State authority in all areas of the Provinces of North and South Kivu,” according to the communiqué.The group also spoke out against violations of ceasefires, calling on the group known as the National Congress for the Defence of the People (CNDP) to immediately halt its military activities in areas it has recently occupied.It also demanded that, in the spirit of the January pact, all forces withdraw from positions occupied after 28 August and to halt all new troop movements, excepting those in concert with the UN peacekeeping mission, known as MONUC, against the Forces Démocratiques de Libération du Rwanda (FDLR).MONUC forces took action in several areas of North and South Kivu today to hold back armed groups and protect civilians caught in their crossfire.Blue helmets acted to prevent CNDP troops from taking Kirotshe, 20 kilometres from the North Kivu provincial capital Goma. Backed by combat helicopters, they also placed themselves between the CNDP and Mayi-Mayi Cobra to prevent them from reaching Kirotshe.Also in that province, intense negotiations took place to end fighting between Government and CNDP forces near Kikuku, while MONUC also helped keep civilians in that town and nearby Nyanzale safe.Meanwhile, in neighbouring South Kivu, MONUC acted to prevent the locality of Minova from being taken over by the CNDP. 11 September 2008Signatories to the United Nations-backed January pact between the Democratic Republic of the Congo (DRC) and armed groups aimed at bringing peace to the country’s troubled east today expressed grave concern over the recent flare-up of hostilities in North and South Kivu. read more

Actors given advice over stalkers who make their lives a misery

“Some people might be traumatised by that, but I think: ‘Well, don’t be an actress then.’ It goes with the territory to an extent. Obviously there are limits beyond which it’s frightening and terrible.“You don’t want to be shot and you don’t want to be dragged into the bushes, but I think you instinctively know as a human being what the threshold is.”But the guidelines, which were produced after several Equity members in its East of Scotland branch reported feeling threatened and intimidated by the obsessive activities of some fans, state: “If you are being stalked you should take action as soon as possible. Victims often delay because they feel they may be overreacting or that they may have encouraged the stalker in some way; or that they will be blamed for the situation.“Remember you are not to blame for your stalker’s behaviour and you are not alone in having to deal with this experience.”Matt Hood, Equity’s Assistant General Secretary, told The Telegraph: “Since the #MeToo revelations we have seen an increase in members wanting advice regarding stalking. The majority of our members are performers and it’s clear that their public profile, through television, film, stage or in clubs makes them more vulnerable to stalking than the average working person, plus the line between performance and person can become blurred. “Our new guide aims to give our members the tools and confidence to report stalking, which is a very distressing and in some cases life-changing situation.Although reports of stalking trebled last year, prosecution rates have plunged, according to government figures, with only around 25% of cases reported to police resulting in stalkers being charged with a crime.BETH RYLANCE: ‘There’s a part of me that will always be looking over my shoulder’Beth Rylance, the comedy actress and star of Ministry of Curious Stuff and Sick Note, was stalked by an obsessive fan who first began pestering her on Twitter.The man, who would tweet continually about her, reply to all her posts, call her his “woman” and post videos of her, then turned up on the doorstep of her London home in December 2014. Kiera Knightley has also been stalked by an obsessive fan who left her terrifiedCredit:DANIEL LEAL-OLIVAS/AFP Beth Rylance: 'Far too many victims of stalking don’t get any justice' Rylance was left terrified.“The panic was overwhelming and immediate. I screamed in terror, then slammed the door and ran upstairs and called the police,” said the 28-year-old. “When the police arrived he was sat on my doorstep, tweeting about me. ‘When you get over your shock, why don’t you come back down and we’ll go for coffee?’ he’d written.”The man was arrested and eventually put on trial, where he claimed he had a secret relationship with the actress.He was found guilty of stalking and harassment and given a two-year-long restraining order, preventing him from contacting Rylance, who first made her name in School of Comedy.“I know I was one of the lucky ones: I got a conviction. Far too many victims of stalking don’t get any justice,” she told the BBC. “Even though I’m moving on with my life, there’s a part of me that will always be looking over my shoulder. Stalking changes you – and it changed me.”EDDIE REDMAYNE: ‘She left us distressed, unsafe and deeply unsettled’Eddie Redmayne was stalked by a German translator stalker who bombarded the actor with love letters. Gaby Stieger, 49, was even convinced she had been married to the Oscar-winning actor in a previous life.During her five-year stalking campaign the mother-of-two hung around the park near Redmayne’s Southwark home, tried to touch him when he was there with his daughter and spied on him through the window while he undressed.During Stieger’s trial in 2017 the 35-year-old actor told the court how her face would “contort with rage” when she spoke about his wife Hannah Bagshawe.Stieger first met Redmayne after seeing him on stage at the Donmar Warehouse in Covent Garden in 2012.The following year she began visiting the set of The Theory Of Everything and trying to get Redmayne to pose in a picture with her.She also followed him and his wife to a carol service at Eton College in December 2013. Felicity Kendal The stalking continued and in August 2017 Stieger approached Redmayne outside his house, while he was with his baby daughter, and tried to touch his arm.Stieger, who had moved from Germany to London to be near Redmayne, admitted one count of stalking involving serious alarm and was sentenced to four months imprisonment, suspended for two years. She was also banned from having any contact with, or coming within 200 metres of Redmayne or his immediate family. In a statement to the court Redmayne, 37, the star of The Danish Girl and the Fantastic Beasts series, described the distress Stieger had caused him and his family, saying: “I always try to be open and friendly as support (from fans) is what gives me a career.“I deeply regret having met Gaby Stieger – she harassed myself and my family intermittently over five years, leaving us distressed, unsafe and deeply unsettled.” When the veteran actress Felicity Kendal dismissed stalking as something her profession simply had to put up with she may have won admiration in some quarters for her matter of fact ‘un-PC’ attitude.But the threat faced by her fellow performers has become so serious that their union has for the first time felt the need to issue a set of guidelines to help actors protect themselves from obsessive fans.Equity has warned that far from being the sort of minor irritation suggested by Kendal earlier this year, it in fact has an all too “distressing and life changing” impact on its victims.The union warns TV, film and stage actors are particularly vulnerable because their visible public profile lends some fans to convince themselves they enjoy a special “connection” with the target of their obsession.Performers have reported stalkers lurking outside their home or workplace and pestering them with unwanted gifts, notes and photographs.The number of performers wanting advice about dealing with stalking has gone up since the #MeToo revelations, as actors have grown in confidence over talking about sexual harassment in the industry.Among the actors stalked in recent years has been Keira Knighltey, whose stalker left her terrified to leave her north London home before he was detained at a psychiatric hospital indefinitely in 2017, and the Coronation Street star Kym Marsh, who was sent pornographic material through the post. Kiera Knightley has also been stalked by an obsessive fan who left her terrified Beth Rylance: ‘Far too many victims of stalking don’t get any justice’Credit:Chris Mann As part of its advice Equity has warned performers who fear they are being stalked to turn off GPS and location tagging on their mobile devices which might allow their movements to be tracked; record unwanted telephone conversations, answer the phone by saying ‘hello’ rather than giving their name and not show emotion in the face of a stalker.Urging victims of stalking to report the matter to the police immediately, Equity advises performers to keep a diary of any incidents and save text messages, emails and screenshots as evidence.The guidelines, which are being distributed online and to the union’s branches, also advise actors who receive even non-threatening letters or gifts to keep them as proof of unwanted contact. “If any of these items contain frightening or upsetting messages, again do not throw them away and handle them as little as possible. It is important that you pass these items to the police,” it states.Earlier this year Kendal was criticised after saying that although she had experienced stalking by a number of fans early in her career, actors who found it too distressing should simple give up the profession.The star of The Good Life and Rosemary & Thyme said of being pestered by stalkers:  “I think everybody did in those days. It was just a couple of people who came to every show and then they followed me home and they were always outside my house.“It wasn’t serious, though. One of them was quite a sweet guy. Perhaps he was just lonely.

10000 year clock project gets mountain 42M from Amazons Jeff Bezos music

first_img‘Let’s face it; a lot of people in this world are shortsighted. When warned about the future dangers caused by global warning, many people think so what? I’ve got a hundred years on this earth at most and then the next generation can deal with it? Our civilization has historically had a problem with planning ahead. For instance, when we realized that many computers were only programmed to use two numbers to denote a year, as in 12/31/99, many people were worried about the Y2K crisis that was supposed to crash computers worldwide when the year switched from 1999 to 2000.One man, however, decided that it’s important to look forward. Computer scientist, designer, and inventor Danny Hillis came up with an idea in 1989 to design a clock that would keep time for the next 10,000 years. No one can predict what the world will be like 10,000 years from now. In fact, there’s a good chance our civilization could be extinct by then. However, according to the Long Now Foundation, started by Hillis in 1996 to support the project, most civilizations last about 10,000 years.The Long Now Foundation wants people to think in the perspective of a person living 1,000 years. It focuses on what your actions now can do for the future. Hillis’ goal for the clock is to inspire long-term thinking and would act as an artifact, a reminder of generations past.The clock will be built into a mountain and will tower at about 200 feet. A project like this obviously isn’t cheap, but Hillis and team have some good support, specifically from Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos who has given $42 million to the project. Bezos didn’t just give the project a boatload of money; he’s also giving it a mountain to build in. According to a website Bezos recently launched called 10000yearclock.net, Bezos has been helping Hillis with the project for the past six years,Hillis will be building the clock on Bezos’ land in western Texas. It’s the first of what the Long Now Foundation hopes to be many millennial clocks that will be built around the world. A second site has already been purchased in Nevada for the second clock.Hillis said in 1996 that he wanted to build a clock that ticks once a year with a century hand that advances once every 100 years, and a cuckoo that comes out on the millennium. Hillis and his team built a working 8-foot-tall prototype that was completed on New Year’s Eve 1999. At midnight, the clock chimed twice to start the new millennium. It now sits at the London Science Museum.The 200-foot clock, however, won’t be as easily viewable. Reaching the clock will start with a several-hour-long car ride from the airport. It will require a day’s hike on rugged terrain to reach the entrance, which is almost 2,000 feet above the desert floor. The entrance has a jade door rimmed in stainless steel and a second steel door behind it that act as an airlock to keep dust and wild animals away. The tunnel is pitch black and is a few hundred feet long. At the end of the tunnel you’ll find a 500-foot-long vertical tunnel about 12 feet in diameter with a continuous spiral staircase.The stairs are literally carved out of the rock by a special 2.5-ton stone-slicing robot invented specifically for the project. You can see the stone-slicer in action in the video below. The robot will incrementally make its way down to the bottom of the floor as it carves out a few stairs a day.Obviously, designing and building a clock that can last 10,000 years takes a lot of thought. Hillis decided desert terrains like that of West Texas and Nevada were best since there isn’t much of a temperature fluctuation as in other parts of the country. There’s not a lot of rain, and there’s never any issue of frost, both of which could cause the clock to rust. The primary materials used in the clock are marine grade 316 stainless steel, titanium, and dry running ceramic ball bearings.The clock actually needs two to three people to wind it. However, it also runs off of solar power, so it can technically never have a visitor and still tick away. It can also run for 100 years without solar power. So, granted we lose our sun, the clock could work a century without it before it needs humans to wind it up.To conserve energy, the clock doesn’t show the time unless someone prompts it. Otherwise, the visitor will see the time of the last visitor. This is pretty neat, in a way, since you can see the last time a person had visited the clock, which could be days or decades.The clock uses 20 huge horizontal gears called Geneva wheels (pictured at right), which are 8 feet in diameter and weigh 1,000 pounds each. This mechanical computer calculates the over 3.5 million different melodies that the chimes will ring. The father of ambient music, Brian Eno, composed the never-repeating melody generator that rings the clock’s chimes, making each visit to the clock 100-percent unique. There are 10 huge chimes that are optimized for the acoustics of the shaft space. Eno is also the creator of Bloom, an iPhone app that creates randomized ambient music that also never repeats itself. Each user’s experience is unique and no two users will ever create the same sound, much like how the clock’s chimes will work.Inside the tunnel are also five room-sized ‘anniversary chambers,” one for the one-year, 10-year, 100-year, 1,000-year, and 10,000 anniversaries. The first will feature a special orrery, which is a mechanical solar system model, that will be activated by the clock one year after it launches. The team is still deciding what to do for the 10-year anniversary. As for the other three, they’re leaving that up to future generations.Read more at the Long Now Foundation and 1000yearclock.netlast_img read more

Former Barrett Business Services CFO indicted for false SEC filings

first_imgThe former chief financial officer of Vancouver-based Barrett Business Services was indicted Wednesday and accused of misrepresenting millions of dollars in filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, then personally profiting from those misstatements.James Miller of Washougal served as CFO of the publicly traded business management company from 2008 to 2016, when he was fired after admitting that he had falsified entries in Barrett’s books to improperly report workers’ compensation expenses as payroll taxes and fees.In 2013, Miller allegedly underreported about $12 million in workers’ compensation expenses. As a result, the company’s balance sheet looked more robust to its investors and stock analysts. Barrett trades on the Nasdaq Exchange under the symbol BBSI.According to a media release from the U.S. Department of Justice, Miller then profited by exercising his stock options. He bought 35,300 shares for $467,261 and sold them for more than $2.4 million. “Miller took advantage of the decreases in payroll-related costs to fund workers’ compensation obligations that were reflected on BBSI’s balance sheet,” states Miller’s indictment, prepared for U.S. District Court for the Western District of Washington.last_img read more

ASA Writes CFTC Opposing New Rules on Margin Requirements

first_imgASA and a coalition of agricultural stakeholders wrote this week to commissioners at the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) in opposition to proposed new rules that would significantly increase margin requirements for farmers.  The “Customer Protection” rule would re-interpret how margin obligations will be determined, likely requiring futures commission merchants (FCMs) to assume that all margin calls from each customer are simultaneously not able to be collected, resulting in customers being asked to pre-fund their margin or pay to use the capital of the FCM as an injection into the customer account.The group writes, “We support strongly the Commission’s efforts to enhance futures customer protections.  However, the capital charge and residual interest provisions of this rule will have the opposite impact – if adopted, customers will be exposed to significantly greater financial risk.”Among likely impacts listed by the group are that “Futures customers will be compelled to send excess margin to their FCMs in anticipation of future market movement on existing positions – many billions of dollars more than needed to cover existing positions – the last thing customers want to do now, in the wake of MF Global and Peregrine Financial Group.” Additionally, “Futures customers will be compelled to borrow more money just to post margin on potential market moves – difficult for both lending banks and for customers to predict, and potentially difficult for smaller local banks.  This increased borrowing requirement negatively affects a customer’s ability to invest in their own business.”The full text of the letter is available below.[gview file=”https://soygrowers.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/09/CFTCLetter.pdf”]last_img read more

This Startup Aims to be the Slack of Healthcare

first_img Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals In the not too distant past, employees could access fully-insured health plans that had deep coverage. Employees’ eyes glazed over during enrollment meetings before they returned to their desks to stuff their benefit booklets into a drawer. Immediately forgetting about benefits design wasn’t an issue because they weren’t on the hook for medical expenses. Employees only paid attention to benefits during an emergency. Oh, how times have changed.Employees today are on the hook for potentially huge medical expenses as more and more companies move to high-deductible health plans (HDHP). Premium increases of 58 percent in the last 10 years have forced this trend. According to the Kaiser Family Foundation in 2016, over 29 percent of all company medical plans had high deductibles. The result: employee frustration with their benefits. Companies are looking for solutions that encourage employees to change behavior to reduce medical expenses and increase employee satisfaction.One company using advanced technologies to solve this problem is HealthJoy, a Chicago-based startup that just announced a funding round with Chicago Ventures & Social Capital. I spoke with HealthJoy CEO Justin Holland about how HealthJoy tackles healthcare costs with their communication platform that uses artificial intelligence and chatbot technology.Related: Year-End Healthcare Strategies for Small-Business OwnersIt seems that employer healthcare costs have been growing at a rate that’s way above inflation for decades. Why is this happening and how can artificial intelligence and chatbots address this problem?Healthcare is a complicated subject but the main problem is simple: claims. The number and size of claims drives healthcare costs. For years health insurance was given to employees and used like a company credit card at a restaurant without any prices. Employees did whatever their doctor recommended without any concern for price. Healthcare by its nature is the opposite of transparent on pricing, which leads to more, larger claims. This one-two combo plays a large part in escalating employer healthcare prices. This is a simplistic approach but fairly accurate.HealthJoy tackles this problem by engaging employees through our mobile app that’s powered by JOY, our virtual healthcare assistant. She helps employees make better healthcare decisions and the app becomes an employee’s hub for everything healthcare and employee benefits related.The app connects a wide variety of services including online doctors, healthcare concierges, prescription savings, medical bill review and much more. Employees just chat with JOY for anything they need. The app integrates with a company’s existing health plan so implementation is simple.Related: Jump Into the Hot Health-Care Sector With These 10 BusinessesI noticed in your funding announcement that Social Capital is one of your backers. They also funded Slack, another communication platform that’s the fastest growing business app of all time. How is your healthcare communication platform different from something like Slack?We believe that healthcare is best delivered with a conversation. Healthcare is complex and almost scary to people who don’t know how the game is played, which is most people in the U.S. Employees need guidance from the very start of the process. They need help figuring out which questions to ask and what information to provide to our team. They need consistent education and reminders around their benefits, the services they have access to in HealthJoy, and explanations for every recommendation we make. It takes that extra step to help change the behavior of blindly following the recommendation of your doctor, who has no idea that the MRI he refers patients to is $2,000 more expensive than one of equal quality just down the road. This conversation, which both engages members and explains all of the resources to them, was the missing link we identified in a lot of the “tools” offered by other companies. You aren’t going to change years of behavior by giving someone a new tool. Just because you give someone a chainsaw doesn’t mean they know how to chop down a redwood. Our members don’t have to do any work or remember anything except that they should use HealthJoy for any benefits need or question. We equip our concierge team with the necessary tools. They’re the experts, and they do all the heavy lifting for our members.By making the chat interface the center of our app and using virtual assistant technology, we are able to deliver every available service in one place at utilization rates that are 10-15 times greater than traditional providers. We simplify every benefit each employee has, in-no-small-part because we can hold their hand through chat. Benefits are in one app instead of five to 10 different phone numbers that are hidden in a benefits package. Employees don’t even have to remember when or why to use each one because we can tell them.Take online doctor visits as an example. Telemedicine has been around for over 10 years with a proven return on investment. Online doctor visits save employers money by redirecting care to a lower cost service, like using telemedicine instead of going to the emergency room. The issue in the past was that employees had forgotten about the benefit by the time they really needed to use it. We get around this by engaging with an employee throughout the year and being at the center of all their employee benefits interactions. That’s the reason why our engagement beats every single stand alone service offering in the market.Regarding Slack, I would say we are similar in that we put the user at the center of our universe and focus on making communication for them as easy as possible. We’ve been refining our product since 2014 and have focused on education, feedback and customer happiness.Related: The Healthcare Industry Needs to Change in Order to Serve All IndividualsHealthJoy seems the best-in-class health benefits platform. How does it compare in cost to other solutions?Our service might not be the cheapest but we are by far the lowest in cost on a per interaction basis. I’ve held strategy sessions with employers offering a telemedicine-only plan to their more than 50,000 members. After six months of the program they had fewer than 30 consults. Let’s say they’re paying only $.50 pepm. That’s a total cost of $150,000. Divide that by 30 and you get $5,000 paid per consult. Now that’s expensive.Most of the older solutions are call-center based with IVR technology and haven’t changed much for a few years.

first_img May 16, 2012 — Philips Healthcare has established a five-year agreement with St. Joseph’s Hospital and Medical Center in Phoenix to pursue research to help accelerate the advancement of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology. The research will take place at the Barrow Neurological Institute at St. Joseph’s, one of the top neurological medical centers in the world and widely considered to be a top research facility for the development of new MRI acquisition methods.The research team, comprising scientists and researchers from Philips and Barrow, will focus the majority of their work on developing new neurological MRI applications. In particular, one goal is to develop technologies that can significantly accelerate MRI scans, leading to a substantial reduction in both the scan’s duration and cost.“Our hope is that this research partnership will result in rapid MRI technology improvements, meaning faster and less expensive scans for patients around the world,” said Jim Pipe, M.D., director of neuroimaging research at Barrow Neurological Institute and inventor of Propeller imaging technology, which is called MultiVane within Philips. This technology, available on all commercial MRI scanners and widely used around the world, measures a patient’s movement during an MRI scan and subsequently corrects that motion to produce sharper and more accurate images.As part of the five-year agreement, Philips will install its Ingenia 3.0T MRI scanner in the Institute’s research lab. Ingenia is the first fully digital MRI system, offering digital signal acquisition and processing directly at the patient. Digitizing the signal directly in the radio frequency (RF) receive coil nearest to the patient and transferring and processing the signal in digital form throughout the imaging chain, results in an improved signal-to-noise ratio and facilitates the delivery of crisp image clarity to help clinicians make informed decisions. The digital platform also allows for the integration of other measurements as well as image capture and reconstruction technology advancements that better remedy motion-induced image disturbances.For more information: www.healthcare.philips.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) | August 06, 2019 Canon Medical Introduces Encore Orian MR Upgrade Program Canon Medical Systems USA Inc. is helping to provide low-cost patient care solutions for its customers with the launch… read more Technology | Contrast Media | July 15, 2019 FDA Approves Bayer’s Gadavist Contrast for Cardiac MRI in Adult Coronary Artery Disease Patients The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved Gadavist injection for use in cardiac magnetic resonance… read more News | Image Guided Radiation Therapy (IGRT) | July 16, 2019 AAPM 2019 Features More Than 40 Presentations on ViewRay’s MRIdian MRI-guided Radiotherapy ViewRay Inc. announced that the company’s MRIdian System is the focus of more than 40 abstracts selected by the… read more 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 News | Neuro Imaging | July 05, 2019 Delta T1 Maps Provide Quantitative, Automated Solution to Assess Brain Tumor Burden Imaging Biometrics LLC (IB) a subsidiary of IQ-AI Ltd., is highlighting a recently published study in the American… read more News | Neuro Imaging | August 16, 2019 ADHD Medication May Affect Brain Development in Children A drug used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) appears to affect development of the brain’s… read more Related Content News | May 16, 2012 Philips Partners With St. Joseph’s Hospital to Accelerate MRI Development Technology | Neuro Imaging | August 07, 2019 Synaptive Medical Launches Modus Plan With Automated Tractography Segmentation Synaptive Medical announced the U.S. launch and availability of Modus Plan featuring BrightMatter AutoSeg.

Virgin Blue OK after new glitch scare

first_imgSource = e-Travel Blackboard: C.C Virgin Blue announced that its reservation and check in systems are up and running, after the airline was again reverted to manual check in after a new glitch halted systems earlier this morning. The airline announced that its systems were back to normal as at 8.30am this morning. “There are no cancellations, guests should go to the airport as normal,” the airline announcement read. Earlier this morning, it looked like Virgin Blue was to be thrown into its fourth consecutive day of disrepair, as a new computer glitch brought systems to a halt, forcing customers to check in manually. The airline says it had some “problems with tests” which caused the delays, News.com.au reported. The airline’s computer had slowed down around 5.15am for 40 minutes, according to a spokesperson. Inbound flights to Brisbane airport were listed as delayed earlier in the morning. Outbound flights from Melbourne were also listed as delayed.The latest glitch follows the massive system failure on Sunday, which left over 100,000 travellers stranded and searching for accommodation, many of them camping out in airport terminals. Over 100 flights were cancelled as a result of the system crash, which was blamed on “external supplier’s hardware failure”.Virgin boss Sir Richard Branson apologised yesterday for “a terrible 24 hours”, in which the airline’s airport staff had come under widespread criticism for their response to the crisis and their inability to communicate the problems to the passengers.last_img read more

Elaine May accepts the best performance by an actr

first_img Elaine May accepts the best performance by an actress in a leading role in a play for “The Waverly Gallery” at the 73rd annual Tony Awards at Radio City Music Hall on Sunday, June 9, 2019, in New York. (Photo by Charles Sykes/Invision/AP) awards|broadway|entertainment|musicals|New York|plays|Radio City Music Hall|tony awards NEW YORK — When effervescent actress Ali Stroker came onstage to accept her historic trophy as the first actor in a wheelchair to win a Tony, it wasn’t just the feel-good moment of the night. It may have been one of the most joyous Tony moments in years.The crowd jumped to its feet in unison as Stroker, who won best featured actress in a musical for a sexy, saucy performance as Ado Annie in “Oklahoma!” arrived onstage.“This award is for every kid who is watching tonight who has a disability, who has a limitation or a challenge, who has been waiting to see themselves represented in this arena,” she said. “You are.”The buoyant moment was emblematic of a feel-good evening at the Tonys that featured crowd-pleasing performances, a Broadway-loving host in the form of James Corden and a theme of inclusivity. The big winner: “Hadestown,” the soulful musical by Anais Mitchell based on an ancient Greek myth, which triumphed over much more traditionally commercial fare.The victory of “Hadestown” was also notable for the number of women it brought to the podium; it was not only written by a woman but also directed by one, and producer Mara Isaacs accepted the award. Director Rachel Chavkin won her own Tony, as did Mitchell for best score. In all, “Hadestown” won eight Tonys.But despite a great night for a show that began its long, improbable journey to Broadway as a community theatre project in rural Vermont, Chavkin echoed a note of frustration about the persistent lack of diversity on creative teams.“I wish I wasn’t the only woman directing a musical on Broadway this season,” she said. “There are so many women who are ready to go. There are so many artists of colour who are ready to go. … This is not a pipeline issue. It is a failure of imagination by a field whose job is to imagine the way the world could be.”The acting awards brought a slew of satisfying victories for beloved veterans. Comic legend Elaine May, 87, won her first Tony for playing an Alzheimer’s-afflicted grandmother in Kenneth Lonergan’s “The Waverly Gallery,” charming the crowd with a witty acceptance speech.And Broadway favourites Santino Fontana and Stephanie J. Block took the top musical acting prizes. Fontana won his first Tony as the cross-dressing lead in “Tootsie,” an adaptation of the 1982 Dustin Hoffman comedy about a struggling actor who impersonates a woman to get cast in a show.The actor paid tribute to his late grandmother, a “fiery, red-headed woman” who, he revealed, was an inspiration for his performance: “Every day I get to bring her into the room, and it has been the best experience of my life.”Block earned her own first Tony for playing a real-life legend — Cher. In an ebullient speech, she told her young daughter: “Mommy won a trophy but like I always tell you, it’s not about winning; it’s about showing up, doing your best, loving all people and finding joy along the way.”Yet another veteran winning his first Tony — at 73 — was André De Shields, best featured actor in a musical for his silky smooth narrator in “Hadestown.” He thanked his hometown of Baltimore and offered “three cardinal rules of my sustainability and longevity.”“One, surround yourself with people whose eyes light up when they see you coming,” he said. “Two, slowly is the fastest way to get to where you want to be. And three, the top of one mountain is the bottom of the next, so keep climbing.”Jez Butterworth’s “The Ferryman,” a sweeping Irish family drama, was crowned best play. Butterworth asked the crowd to give his partner, actress Laura Donnelly, a round of applause for giving birth to their two children while appearing in the drama. Her own family tragedy inspired him to write the play.And in one of the most poignant moments of the night, Sergio Trujillo won the choreography prize for “Ain’t Too Proud — The Life and Times of the Temptations,” thanking his Colombian family.He said in his speech that he arrived in New York over three decades ago without legal permission.“I stand here as proof that the American dream is alive,” he said.Speaking later at the Plaza Hotel after-party, Trujillo was so moved that he was reduced to tears.“I have to be able to use my success as a way to inspire and affect change,” he said. “This is what happens,” he said, pointing to the Tony in his hands, “when we get the love and support that we so richly deserve.”Bryan Cranston won his second Tony for best actor in a play as newscaster Howard Beale in the inventive stage adaptation of the 1976 film “Network.”“Finally, a straight old white man gets a break!” he joked, riffing on the evening’s theme of inclusivity. He dedicated his award to real-life journalists: “The media is not the enemy of the people,” he said, in what amounted to the evening’s most obvious jab at the Trump administration.Corden, in his second stint as host, scored audience points with his obvious affection for Broadway. Among his amusing bits was a tongue-in-cheek attempt to raise ratings by trying to provoke a Nicki Minaj-Cardi B-style beef between Broadway figures.But his most successful bit may have been one the television audience never saw. During commercial breaks, Corden implored celebrities to sing karaoke.The huge hit was Billy Porter. After first protesting that he “wasn’t here to work tonight,” Porter, a former Tony winner for “Kinky Boots,” belted his way through “Everything’s Coming Up Roses” from “Gypsy,” earning the crowd’s adoration.Best featured actress in a play went to Celia Keenan-Bolger for her role as Scout in “To Kill a Mockingbird,” and Bertie Carvel won best featured actor in a play for “Ink,” about Rupert Murdoch.Legendary designer Bob Mackie won best costume design for a musical for “The Cher Show,” getting laughs for saying “This is very encouraging for an 80-year-old.”The dark retelling of “Oklahoma!” beat the crowd-pleasing, dance-heavy revival of “Kiss Me, Kate” for best musical revival. “The Boys in the Band” won best play revival.The awards cap a strong season for Broadway, with a reported record $1.8 billion in sales, up 7.8% from last season. Attendance was 14.8 million — up 7.1% — and has risen steadily for decades.___Associated Press writer Mark Kennedy contributed to this report.Jocelyn Noveck, The Associated Press Tony highlights: A historic win and a strong night for women by Jocelyn Noveck, The Associated Press Posted Jun 10, 2019 2:35 am PDT Last Updated Jun 10, 2019 at 9:08 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Emaillast_img read more

Sour grapes and stalemate in Cyprus

Sour grapes and stalemate in Cyprus

first_imgIn the end it was not to be. In the early hours of Friday morning the UN secretary-general, tired and bedraggled, made a short statement that the conference on Cyprus was closed without agreement being reached.The Cyprus problem had exhausted the poor man and it showed. More pressing problems in Korea required his attention, and he returned to his hotel for some much-needed sleep perhaps to dream of ‘how you solve a problem like Korea.’Guarantors and guaranteed walked away to lick their wounds and to fight another day. In negotiations it is important to be able to walk away with no deal. They could not agree on guarantees and troop withdrawals. As always, the devil is in the detail and I am sure each side will identify the devil as being the other side.In democratic terms, however, the outcome was predictable because the hearts of the people are not yet ripe enough for an agreement to come naturally. This is not sour grapes, but the truth is that any agreement would have been rejected anyway in one of the simultaneous referendums. So why all the fuss?The talks were misconceived in that guarantees should have been discussed and resolved two years ago when the talks began if resolution of the issue of guarantees were a condition precedent to a solution. The two communities have diametrically opposite views on guarantees and security, and this should have been identified as a problem much earlier.The position on the Greek Cypriot side is very clear. Thirteen years ago 75 per cent of Greek Cypriots voted no to a solution that included guarantees. Even though Mr Anastasiades himself led the ‘yes’ campaign in 2004, now he had to make a judgement as president and it had to be in tune with the majority of Greek Cypriot thinking on guarantees.In his political judgement he would not have been able to get the Greek Cypriots to vote yes to a solution containing guarantees by Turkey. That is a judgement that I respect since the Greek Cypriots  would have been seriously undermined in the EU if he agreed a solution that was voted down in a referendum a second time.The role of politicians in democracies is to reflect the will of the people. It is what politicians do and Mr Anastasiades is a consummate politician. The fact that his calculations may have included an assessment of his prospects in the 2018 elections if he followed one course rather than another is par for the course.The position on the Turkish Cypriot side is the symmetrical opposite. The majority of Turkish Cypriots would not have voted for a solution without Turkish guarantees. Security is a real concern for many Turkish Cypriots. In some circles it is the only concern. The majority would have voted no to a solution that had no Turkish guarantees. In their view Turkish guarantees are necessary to protect them in case the agreements do not work out and to act as a deterrent. It is borne of realism and bitter experience both in Cyprus and more recently in Bosnia.I do not myself agree with the need for Turkish guarantees because I believe that the right to request assistance from the international community should vest  with the Turkish Cypriot community and not with Turkey, not least because of legitimate concerns about Turkey’s wish to retain a foothold in Cyprus. But I can see the reason why there are many Turkish Cypriots who would not sleep soundly in their beds at night without guarantees. After all they may be right and I may be wrong, and since these are matters touching on fundamental rights, I respect their assessment of their security requirements.All this sounds like one of the stories of old Nesreddin Hodja, the Sufi sage, who kept telling two warring families in his village –  the Turkish equivalent of the Montagues and Capulets –  that they were both right in their hatred of each other. When his wife sternly pointed out to him that it was not right for him to be so duplicitous, in order to avoid a confrontation with her, he replied that she too was right that they indeed could not both be right.Yet the leaders were indeed both right. What were they supposed to do? If guarantees were retained, the Greek Cypriots would have voted against the solution, and if guarantees were abolished the Turkish Cypriots would have voted against. In chess this is called a stalemate and it is a most frustrating result that is often made worse because your opponent, realising he cannot win, deliberately plays for a stalemate to avoid losing. My late brother Conrad, who was chess champion of Cyprus a couple of times, used to play for stalemate on the rare occasions when I thought I was about to check mate him and it was extremely annoying when he succeeded.I have a feeling that a kind of stalemate was played out at Crans-Montana, and when the acrimony clears, those of us who wish Cyprus well hope against hope that not all was lost now that each side has some idea of the concessions the other is prepared to make.But how to solve what appears to be a classic Catch 22? The answer is to redefine the premise of the problem. Take the presence of British troops in Germany. The Germans do not seem to mind the presence of British troops. Likewise the British could not care less if their troops left Germany tomorrow. The fact is that relations between the two peoples are so good – German successes in the World Cup apart – that it does not matter one way or the other to either of them. This despite the terrible things they did to each other in World War II: among many other atrocities, the Germans bombed the hell out of London and the British burned Dresden.Terrible things happened in Cyprus too but they pale when compared with the atrocities inflicted during World War II in Europe. Relations between the two peoples in Cyprus are not so good. There will be arguments and recriminations. There may even be crocodile tears. But there is a way forward. The people need a change of heart so that it is no longer a question of whether guarantees and troops are required than that they are no longer an issue.The Treaty of Guarantee will then go sunset clause or not if it has not been terminated already. I happen to think it can now be treated as having terminated by a change of circumstances independently of any agreement.Alper Ali Riza is a queen’s counsel in the UK and a part time judgeYou May LikeFigLeaf Beta AppHow to Become Fully Anonymous Online in Less Than 3 Minutes?
