Milan: Manchester United and Chile forward Alexis Sanchez arrived in Italy on Wednesday ahead of an expected loan move to Inter Milan.Italian media published photos and videos of Sanchez from a car park at Malpensa airport and said he would undergo a medical. Sanchez, Chile’s all-time leading scorer with 43 goals, joined Manchester United in January last year and scored only five goals in 45 games, well short of the heights he reached at Arsenal where he netted 80 goals in 166 matches.The 30-year-old led Chile to their first major titles, the Copa America in 2015 and the Copa Centenario the following year, but suffered a major disappointment when they missed out on last year’s World Cup in Russia.He previously spent three seasons in Serie A with Udinese before moving to Barcelona.Sanchez will be reunited with his Manchester United team mate Romelu Lukaku who joined Inter this month.Inter appointed former Italy, Chelsea and Juventus coach Antonio Conte during the close season in a bid to end an eight-year trophy drought. last_img read more

Minister Tours Province

first_imgOver the last week, I have had the opportunity to meet with superintendents and senior staff at five of the eight regional school boards in the province. I have also met with teachers and principals in each of those regions, and representatives from school advisory councils from the boards’ family of schools. The goal is simple. I want to engage in conversations about Dr. Avis Glaze’s Raise the Bar report, talk about government’s response and why the changes are needed. It’s also a chance to listen to thoughts, ideas and concerns. I have been encouraged by the discussions I’ve had so far, and I thank the many people who have taken time to sit down with me. I appreciate there are many questions and am committed to sharing what we can and keeping Nova Scotians informed every step of the way. The discussions have been frank and honest, and at times, emotional. Change is never easy, but I want to assure parents, teachers and other education partners, our students are at the centre of every decision we make. We all want our children to succeed and that’s what is motivating this change. We are putting more resources in classrooms, including moving more math mentors and literacy leads into schools, we’re giving teachers more input in curriculum and the ability to choose their own textbooks. They know their students and what’s best to help them learn. We also want to support teachers. We are creating a provincial College of Educators run by teachers, for teachers. The college will focus on teaching excellence, setting standards for its members just like other self-regulated professions such as doctors, nurses and accountants. Quality teaching and instruction leads to higher student performance. We’re also streamlining the system and we’re empowering school advisory councils giving them more say in school priorities. The principals, teachers, parents and community members who make up these councils know their communities and their schools and understand their local needs. As I travelled the province this week, I have listened. There was a great deal of discussion around removing principals, vice- principals and other senior supervisory positions from their union. As a result, government has decided these individuals will have one year to decide whether they want to remain in their current role, or stay in the Nova Scotia Teachers’ Union and return to the classroom. It’s an important decision and we want to give them more time to consider their options. At the heart of this change is giving our instructional leaders more autonomy. We know their leadership will have a positive effect on student achievement. Government remains committed to strengthening our education system for our students. Over the next week, I will continue to travel the province until I have had the opportunity to visit every school board region. I look forward to sitting down with even more parents, teachers and principals. -30-last_img read more

Press complaints commission receives 133 complaints

Siri Ranasinghe, Editor of the Lankadeepa, N. M. Ameen, Editor of the Nawamani newspaper and Mohanlal Piyadasa, Chief Sub Editor of the Deshaya were re-elected by the general membership of the PCCSL at the AGM to the Board of Directors of the PCCSL.The other members of the Board of Directors representing separate media organizations are  Kumar Nadesan (Chairman, nominated by SLPI), Sinha Ratnatunga (Deputy Chairman, nominated by TEGOSL), Manik de Silva (nominated by the SLPI), Nimal Welgama (nominated by the NSSL), Ananda Jayasekera (nominated by FMM) and Duminda Sampath (nominated by SLWJA).The PCCSL Web Page has received 13,900 hits since it was launched on January 01, 2013. A promotional video about PCCSL is available on the PCCSL’s Facebook page – Press Complaints Commission of Sri Lanka. Messrs Ernest and Young, the Auditors of the PCCSL were re-elected Auditors and Messrs Corporate Services (Private) Limited, Secretaries of the PCCSL were re-elected Secretary of the Company.The PCCSL Secretariat includes Kamal Liyanarachchi, Complaints Officer, Sinhala Print and Promotions Officer. (Colombo Gazette) The Press Complaints Commission of Sri Lanka (PCCSL) received 133 complaints last year. Of the 133 complaints, 84 complaints were valid complaints falling within the purview of the PCCSL mechanism with the Editors publishing a ‘Right of Readers’ for 29 of them, Chief Executive Officer of the PCCSL said in his annual report for 2016.The report was read out at the Annual General Meeting of the Commission held at the Sri Lanka Press Institute auditorium in Colombo. The PCCSL conducted a total of 27 meetings with publishers, Editors, Desk Heads, sub editors and journalists (reporters). The PCCSL also visited Polonnaruwa, Batticaloa, Vavuniya, Kurunegala, Colombo, Hambantota, Amparai, Jaffna, Gampaha, Galle and Kandy and conducted programmes for provincial correspondents.The PCCSL also made positive headway by meeting 74 members representing various sections of civil society at 10 meetings. The role of the PCCSL, Rules and Procedures of the PCCSL and the Editors’ Code were explained. These programmes were well attended by principals of schools, teachers, government officials, military and police personnel, local government institutions, academics, doctors and the Directors of Education. They were eager to know more about the PCCSL and how it works.In addition the PCCSL held a series of programmes with Zonal Directors of Education, Principals, teachers and students of Government Schools imparting practical knowledge of the PCCSL process especially as a socially responsible link between the editors and the public. This was done since the new school curriculum included “Media Studies” in which the PCCSL and the Editors’ Code of Professional Practice are topics at the General Certificate of Education Ordinary and Advanced Level examinations. The report stated that one Sinhala language and two Tamil language newspapers however did not co-operate with the PCCSL, which is a voluntary self-regulatory body of the newspaper industry having the support of the Newspaper Society, Editors’ Guild, Free Media Movement, Working Journalists Association and four other media organizations including a trade union. They are the Federation of Media Employees Trade Union, Sri Lanka Muslim Media Forum, Sri Lanka Tamil Media Alliance and the South Asian Free Media Association – Sri Lanka Chapter.The CEO’s report said that the PCCSL’s autonomous Dispute Resolution Council headed by former Secretary General of Parliament Nihal Seneviratne met seven times to inquire into complaints that required their attention. CEO Sukumar Rockwood further stated that the Sinhala press which comprises 37.20 per cent of the country’s newspapers attracted a majority of the complaints. He said that the Commission received the fullest co-operation from editors to resolve these complaints amicably and swiftly. The CEO’s report states that the PCCSL celebrated its 13th anniversary on October 15, 2016 of the year under review. He said that as many as 317 complaints were resolved directly by editors providing a ‘Right of Readers’ to the aggrieved parties. read more

After Week 12 of the 2015 season, the Broncos’ division rivals — the Chiefs, Raiders and San Diego Chargers — had an average Elo rating of 1489, well below the NFL-wide average of 1505. K.C.’s Elo rating ranked seventh in the league, and the Chiefs were five victories into what would eventually be an 11-game winning streak. But the Raiders and Chargers were each in the league’s bottom third, and the AFC West was fourth among the NFL’s eight divisions in overall average Elo.This year’s AFC West, by contrast, easily ranks first in all of football in average Elo. The Chiefs’ Elo rating has improved by 32 points from where it was this time last season, the Chargers’ by 68 points and the Raiders’ by a stunning 139 points — that makes Oakland the league’s second-most-improved team over that span (trailing only the Dallas Cowboys). With an average Elo of 1578, the 2016 AFC West is on pace to be the NFL’s 10th-best division since the league merged with the AFL before the 1970 season. 12013NFC West41624 CATEGORY2015201620152016 2015 numbers are for the full season; 2016 numbers are as of Nov. 27.Offensive and defensive EPA won’t necessarily match the sum of rushing and passing EPA on each side of the ball because penalties are tracked in a separate category.Source: ESPN Stats & Information Group 22007AFC South41608 All of this has conspired to make the Broncos’ bid for a championship repeat far more daunting than it seemed before the season began. Only 12 teams with an Elo rating as high as Denver’s current mark have missed the playoffs since the merger,2Most recently, the 2008 New England Patriots. but right now, it’s basically a tossup as to whether the Broncos will become No. 13. And because the Broncos’ playoff odds would have been much higher if they’d won or tied Sunday night, their playoff fate might end up depending on — of all things — the few inches that determined where Santos’s kick went after glancing off the goalpost in overtime.Check out our latest NFL predictions. Share on Facebook For most of the season, the Denver Broncos’ bid to repeat as Super Bowl champs looked like it would be relatively smooth sailing. The Broncos opened the season as the best team in the NFL according to FiveThirtyEight’s Elo ratings, and before this weekend, our playoff predictions (which are based on Elo) never gave the team less than a 74 percent chance of making it to the postseason. Going into Sunday night’s game against the division-rival Kansas City Chiefs, Denver had a healthy 76 percent chance of punching a return ticket to the playoffs.But after losing to K.C. when Chiefs kicker Cairo Santos banked in a game winner off the left upright as time expired, Denver unexpectedly finds itself in a precarious situation. The Broncos are in third place in the AFC West, a game behind the Chiefs and two behind the Oakland Raiders, and our model gives Denver only a 54 percent chance of returning to the playoffs. All of a sudden, the Broncos’ title defense is in doubt.How did Denver get into this predicament? For one thing, the team’s quality of play has slipped ever so slightly compared with last season. At this stage of the 2015 season, Denver ranked fourth in the NFL with a 1661 Elo rating, and our model assigned them a 10 percent probability of winning the Super Bowl. This year, despite competing with fewer great teams, the Broncos rank fifth with a 1606 Elo and a 4 percent Super Bowl probability. If they instead sported that 1661 rating from last season, this year’s Broncos would be second in the NFL, nipping at the New England Patriots’ heels for the right to be No. 1.For a while this season, the Broncos’ defense looked like it might be able to keep steady with the all-time great D the team assembled last season, and Denver still has the best defense in football according to expected points added. But like most of history’s dominant defenses, the Broncos’ D has experienced some reversion to the mean, and the team is now getting 4.8 EPA per game out of its defense rather than the 6.6 they got last season. As expected, Denver’s offense has improved under first-year starting QB Trevor Siemian (it would have been hard not to, given how poorly Peyton Manning played last season), but it hasn’t been enough to offset that defensive regression and a drop-off on special-teams after adjusting for strength of schedule.1If you add up Denver’s EPA on offense, defense and special teams, you’ll find that the Broncos have a better per-game point differential this seaon than they did in 2015. (By definition, EPA is designed to add up to a team’s points-per-game differential.) But the Broncos have also played an easier schedule this season; according to Pro-Football-Reference.com’s simple rating system, the 2016 Broncos (+5.4 SRS) are running slightly behind their 2015 form (+5.8) after adjusting for strength of schedule. As a result, the Broncos are no better off now than they were last year. The NFL’s strongest divisions, 1970-2016 Special teams-0.3-1.42526 102016AFC West41578 YEARDIVISIONTEAMSAVG.

Pioneering Canadian mining geophysicist explorationist and entrepreneur Duncan Crone

first_imgIn a close contest with Doug Oldenburg nominated for his work in Electromagnetic Geophysics, and development of the UBC Geophysical Inversion Facility, Duncan Crone has been chosen by the global panel of judges to be into the International Mining Technology Hall of Fame in the Exploration category at the gala awards dinner in Denver on February 20th, during SME Conference week.James Duncan Crone, 1929-2011, was known and recognised in the mining and exploration community around the globe. He was a very innovative, practical-minded geophysicist who made numerous important contributions to the advancement of mining geophysics and to mineral exploration discoveries during his long career.He joined the remarkable group of innovative geophysicists working for Newmont in Jerome, Arizona under the legendary Dr Arthur Brant, which included Harry Seigel and Len Collett. Here, the practical application of Induced Polarisation to mineral exploration was born. Later, with co-operation from Newmont, Crone would use what he learned in Jerome to build practical IP and EM instrumentation which were simple to operate and extremely reliable.In the early 1950s he returned to Canada and joined Radar Exploration where he was involved with magnetic, gravity, and vertical loop EM surveys following up early airborne EM surveys for massive sulphide deposits. One of his achievements during this time was to successfully apply gravity surveys to distinguish graphite from massive sulphides in the Bathurst mining camp.Serving as Noranda’s first Chief Geophysicist from 1956 until 1962, his focus was to develop practical, portable EM systems that could be used to find near-surface massive sulphides. The JEM and the Shootback EM method were invented and developed, constituting great improvements over other instrumentation available at that time. The Shootback method was an ingenious way to remove the effects of topography on tilt-angle EM surveys.In 1962, he founded Crone Geophysics where the Shootback EM method was further improved and put into production. His innovation and inventiveness led him to produce numerous practical and portable instruments such as the CEM (Horizontal Shootback EM with larger coils than the JEM), the VEM (Vertical Loop EM transmitter hoisted on a mast, with tilt-angle CEM receiver), and the RADEM (VLF receiver). These were sold to a worldwide market. Crone, always close to the action in mineral exploration, was involved with numerous discoveries while consulting for Amoco and Mattagami Lake Mines among others, many of which were based on his picks of priority targets from airborne surveys, and followed-up with his EM instruments.In the 1970s, as Induced Polarization became more widely used around the world, Crone also saw the need for a practical, lightweight, easy to operate IP system. This led to the development of a battery-powered IP transmitter and compact receiver which facilitated shallow IP surveys in difficult and remote locations as well as borehole IP surveys.Realising that there was a growing need to look deeper into the earth, and drawing on early instrumentation and research by Newmont, he began to develop borehole and surface time-domain EM equipment, which he named Pulse EM. This was the first commercially available surface time-domain EM system in the world, and it was an immediate success. It was soon being used worldwide.In 1978, the first commercial Borehole Pulse EM system in the world was produced by Crone Geophysics. Today, borehole Pulse EM is an integral part of many exploration programs, and has led to the discovery of many deep massive sulphide orebodies.last_img read more

Greek seniors find their own resort at Edipsos

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram It was drizzling on the morning that I arrived at Edipsos. A rainstorm the night before had formed puddles here and there, and especially on the poorly asphalted roads. The cloudy horizon melted into the Gulf of Evia and I could just make out the coast of mainland Greece on the other side. Having come to see what all the fuss was about at this resort that is de rigueur for the country’s elderly population, I greeted the freak weather with guarded enthusiasm: The meteorological fluke allowed me to wax poetic in my mind about the connection between the unexpected autumnal gloom and the thousands of pensioners who flood this small town on the northern tip of Evia for therapeutic baths in its famed hot springs. As soon as the sun came out and the streets filled up with groups of elderly men and women, I realized that I was entirely on the wrong track. I had imagined the depressing sight of elderly people shuffling along to their hot baths a downer – like the sudden shower. It was quite the opposite in fact, because their enthusiasm and their simple joie de vivre makes the town pulsate with life, while also providing a significant boost to the local economy. Possibly because the elderly in Greece are normally sidelined to a supportive role, Edipsos gives you the impression of a reversed reality, one where they enjoy the starring role that they deserve in a better, more just and more civilized world. In fact, it is practically the only summer resort in the country where seniors feel more than welcome. I imagine that when they come here for the first time, they are also surprised by the fact that almost the entire local economy and community depend on their patronage. The fixation with youth and beauty, so prevalent in other summer resorts, takes second place in Edipsos; its grace lies elsewhere. Here, the entire town is at the service of the people who feed the local economy with thousands of euros every summer: from the hotels, most of which have swimming pools filled with water from the hot springs, to shops selling items like bathrobes, pyjamas, nightgowns, underwear, muu muus, fancy handicrafts and flowery tablecloths, along with old-school pastry shops and dozens of pharmacies. Edipsos is like a mall and fun park for the elderly rolled into one. No other town in Greece provides such a lavish welcome for this particular consumer group. A closer look reveals just how well trained the staff at the local shops are, showing patience and letting their customers shop at their own pace. An afternoon stroll along the coastal promenade of Edipsos’ high street, Ermou, is the best way for a beginner to become immersed in the anthropological uniqueness of this town. The women clearly have the upper hand – there are more of them, most are quite voluminous, they seem more organised and they are certainly more outgoing than their husbands. Their loud voices and their shopper’s temperament set the tone. Most of the men appear somewhat withdrawn and give the impression that they are here against their will. It goes without saying that we see a way of life in Edipsos that has largely disappeared from the rest of Greece. The daily routine of the beach goers is reminiscent of the 1960s because of the strict operating hours of the hot springs and the sanctity of the afternoon siesta. At the seaside cafes and pastry shops, people are happy to make new acquaintances and friends, with groups of elderly women holding court. Edipsos is also a place where friends who have been coming here for years have their regular rendezvous every summer or fall. On top of all this, Edipsos also has the air of old Europe thanks to the cosmopolitan atmosphere endowed by some of the older hotels and residences scattered along the seafront. There are parts of the town that look like the classic spa towns of Central Europe. A building here, a pavilion there, an imposing events hall in some old hotel and the fact that the Gulf of Evia can look like a lake given its proximity to the mainland complete the picture. Unfortunately, however, ungainly and uncontrolled construction since the end of World War II, without any respect for the architectural traditions of the town, mean that the Central European spa feeling is only fleeting. On the other hand, this mishmash of hotels and rooms, housed in buildings ranging from the stately to the shabby, also means that almost anyone can afford a few days at Edipsos, while its layout allows for all the different social strata to mix and mingle. Listening in on the conversations of the groups sitting at a pastry shop, the points that drive people together are not whether they come from the ‘right’ neighbourhood in Athens or some other city, but the joy of company, the “best cakes in Edipsos” and “this great doctor in Pangrati”. At the end of the day, architectural harmony is the last thing that Edipsos’ visitors are looking for. And they relish the town’s warm embrace with their joie de vivre and a promise to come back next year. Source: ekathimerinilast_img read more

Watch NASAs InSight Mars Lander Launch on Saturday

first_imgLet us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey. NASA’s next mission to Mars is scheduled for launch Saturday morning, from the Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.The aptly named InSight (short for Interior Exploration using Seismic Investigations, Geodesy, and Heat Transport) will blast off at 4:05 a.m. PT (7:05 a.m. ET) from Vandenberg Air Force Base in California.“InSight will be the first mission to peer deep beneath the Martian surface, studying the planet’s interior by measuring its heat output and listening for marsquakes, which are seismic events similar to earthquakes on Earth,” according to the National Aeronautics and Space Administration.“It will use the seismic waves generated by marsquakes to develop a map of the planet’s deep interior,” the announcement continued. “The resulting insight into Mars’ formation will help us better understand how other rocky planets, including Earth, were and are created.”Scientists also hope to determine the rate of Martian tectonic activity and meteorite impacts.Part of NASA’s Discovery Program, InSight is the first planetary mission to take off from the west coast.Along for the ride is a separate experiment known as Mars Cube One (MarCO), which consists of two miniaturized satellites built by the Jet Propulsion Laboratory. Assuming the twin communicators reach Mars, they will monitor InSight for a period after landing.“However, these CubeSat missions are not needed for InSight’s mission success,” Jim Green, director of NASA’s planetary science division, said in a statement. “They are a demonstration of potential future capability.”To date, more than 800 CubeSats have been launched. This marks the first test of the technology in deep space.Once catapulted into the cosmos aboard a United Launch Alliance (ULA) Atlas V rocket, InSight is expected to land on Nov. 26 at Elysium Planitia, where it will spend 728 Earth days (708 Mars days) studying the celestial body.Coverage of pre-launch and launch activities begin Thursday on NASA Television and the agency’s website.

Ronaldo will score an enormous amount of goals at Juventus – Matuidi

first_imgScoring goals is a part of Cristiano Ronaldo’s DNA and it is only a matter of time before they come for Juventus, says teammate Blaise MatuidiThe five-time Ballon d’Or winner’s wait to get off the mark at his new club continues after failing to find the back of the net in Juventus’ 2-0 home win over Lazio on Saturday evening.But Matuidi insists that Ronaldo is the best player in the world and that it won’t be long before he rediscovers his scoring touch.“He is the best player in the world,” said Matuidi, as quoted by One Football.“For us it is something exceptional, we are thrilled to play with him.Cristiano Ronaldo, Nemanja Vidic, Manchester UnitedVidic: “Ronaldo is the most professional footballer I’ve seen” Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Nemanja Vidic opened up on how a 21-year-old Cristiano Ronaldo’s professionalism left him stunned at Manchester United.“We know that if he scores goals it will help us win more matches. Of course, we will learn from his game. Juventus is another culture. For him, for us, to understand his game.“He is someone who goes forward very quickly, who is very mobile, we need to understand each other better.“We will improve in that sense and I know he will score an enormous amount of goals.”While he didn’t score though, Ronaldo registered his first assist for Juventus on Saturday.last_img read more

Exemployee sues Vancouvers Barrett Business Services

first_imgA former employee of Vancouver-based Barrett Business Services Inc. has filed a lawsuit against the human resources company, alleging it withheld income from him, violated his contract, misrepresented the terms of his employment and wrongfully fired him for reporting corrupt practices.Todd Krug, formerly a branch manager for the publicly-traded Barrett, filed the lawsuit in February in Clark County Superior Court. Krug seeks an unspecified amount in damages, including for back pay, prejudgment interest, future economic loss and compensation for emotional distress and mental anguish. He has requested a jury trial.Krug argues the company retaliated against him after he confronted managers “about fraud and illegal activity,” according to documents filed by his attorneys, Allyssa Hale and Duncan Turner with the Seattle-based law firm Badgley Mullins Turner. The retaliation included threatening to fire him for questioning any action or statement by Barrett CEO Mike Elich, documents show.In a response filed in March, Barrett denies the allegations and asks the court to dismiss Krug’s suit “with prejudice.” It also makes a counterclaim, accusing Krug of refusing to return a company-owned laptop computer and of taking or destroying hard copies of customer files belonging to Barrett. “There was just cause” for Krug’s firing, according to documents filed by the company’s attorney, Joseph Vance of the Vancouver office of the law firm Miller Nash. And Barrett “was damaged by plaintiff’s actions in an amount to be proven at trial.”Court documents show Krug responded in May, admitting he has the computer but denying he refused to return it. He also denied taking or destroying customer files. In June, he changed his earlier response, saying that he has customer files but rejecting that he declined to return them. Otherwise, Krug rejects the company’s accusations, which include “trespass to personal property.” He asks the court to dismiss the counterclaim “with prejudice.”last_img read more

Texas maternity ward delivers 48 babies in 41 hours

first_imgFORT WORTH, Texas (WSVN) — A hospital in Texas experienced a mini-baby boom after doctors delivered 48 babies in 41 hours.With an average of more than one baby being born every hour, Baylor Medical Center had to call in extra staff to deliver all the newborns.Dr. Jamie Erwin says talks have been swirling as to why so many babies were born in such a short time period.“There’s always talk about a full moon. We definitely had a big full moon this week,” she said. “Maybe there is something to that as well, maybe not. But it’s always a busy time of the year.”Most babies are born in the months of July, August, and September, according to state reports.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.

Ford boosts warranty for Fiesta Focus models with dualclutch transmissions

first_img More From Roadshow 2019 Ford Focus is safer, roomier and more fun to drive 2018 Ford EcoSport: Better late than never 12 Photos More about 2018 Ford Fiesta S Sedan Enlarge ImageMore warranty coverage is always good for peace of mind. Ford Ford Fiesta and Focus owners can celebrate a minor victory as the automaker announced it will add warranty coverage to both cars. Specifically, the 2014-2016 model years will qualify for additional coverage.Ford made the announcement Wednesday, saying the warranty coverage is specifically for the clutch and related hardware for the oft-maligned dual-clutch transmission. Now, the clutch and associated components will be under warranty for seven years or 100,000 miles (up from five years or 60,000 miles) and the transmission control module will be covered for 10 years or 150,000 miles.”Ford understands and regrets that many customers have been inconvenienced and frustrated by the performance of the DPS6 transmission,” said Dave Filipe, vice president of Ford Powertrain, in a statement. “Earning and keeping the trust of customers is vital to everything we do. That is why Ford and its dealers have gone to great lengths to improve the performance of the transmission.”Aside from the extended warranty coverage, the automaker will also once again reach out to a small group of Fiesta and Focus owners that have not received a software upgrade for the transmission control module. The upgrade provides an even more advanced warning should the system detect the control module failing. Owners who have the update installed will also be eligible for free replacement modules, in the event they do fail, six months after the new 10-year, 150,000-mile warranty coverage expires. So far, Ford said 84% of Fiesta and Focus owners have opted in for the software upgrade.Meanwhile, every single one of the affected cars on the road now features the latest component and software updates for the buggy dual-clutch transmission. With today’s announcement of added warranty coverage, the automaker also plans to reimburse customers who’ve carried out clutch repairs and paid them out of pocket. The extended coverage puts plenty of owners back into a warranty period.Even with the added protection, a lawsuit still swirls over Ford that alleges the automaker knew the transmission did not perform well but sold cars with the unit anyway. 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better Comments 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealouscenter_img Ford 2 Preview • 2018 Ford Fiesta: Opting for evolution over revolution Tags Share your voice Sedans Car Industry Fordlast_img read more

Desktop Linux FaceOff Ubuntu 804 vs Fedora 9

first_imgJune 2, 2008 Over the past decade, Linux has emerged from a herd of obscure and nerdy operating systems to warrant a place in even the most technologically unsophisticated business environments. And in the past three years, a few distributions have made stupendous leaps in performance and usability, winning the affection of millions of mainstream desktop users.The recent releases of Ubuntu 8.04 and Fedora 9–two top Linux distributions–mark another step forward in the evolution of the Linux desktop. I’ve been running both of them to see which offers the better blend of usability and advanced features.Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy HeronSince the release of version 5.10 (aka Breezy Badger) in 2005, Ubuntu Linux has stood apart from hundreds of other Linux distributions, capturing the attention of penguin heads and of users seeking a free, stable, usable alternative to Microsoft Windows. With its click-and-go Live CD installation and its support for a broad base of hardware devices, Ubuntu built a reputation for ease of use that changed the way many people think about Linux. PC World was so impressed that Ubuntu landed on our list of “The 100 Best Products of 2006,” a first for any flavor of Linux.The latest version of Ubuntu, 8.04 (aka Hardy Heron, or just Hardy for short), builds strongly on the foundation laid by its predecessors. This release is a Long Term Support edition, to be supported until April 2011, and Hardy Heron shows more polish and refinement than any other Linux distribution I’ve seen.The operating system comes packed with new features, beginning with a revised kernel (2.6.24), the latest version of Xorg (7.3), and the most recent Gnome desktop interface (2.22.1). On top of these advances, Hardy offers several new default applications, including Brasero for CD/DVD burning, the Transmission BitTorrent client, and Vinagre virtual network computing software for remote desktop viewing. You also get support for enhanced security via SELinux (Security-Enhanced Linux)–but in Ubuntu 8.04 it’s not installed by default, as it is in Fedora 9.From the get-go, the Hardy Heron experience is smooth. I installed it on several machines, including an aging laptop with a Via graphics controller that’s notorious for making a hash of things in Linux. Each installation found and recognized all of my hardware without requiring a reboot. Even my media card slot, which Windows can never locate a driver for on its own, worked right off the bat. Existing Ubuntu users enjoy even slicker installation: The Hardy Heron upgrade comes through the Update Manager, and one click initiates a totally automated –albeit fairly long–upgrade process that leaves all of the user’s data in place.Ubuntu’s automated Hardware Drivers utility seeks out proprietary drivers for devices in your system, simplifying the task of grabbing the latest proprietary nVidia driver, for instance, so that you can enable Desktop Effects. Some hard-core open-source advocates disapprove of Ubuntu’s compromise with the closed-source world, but end users who care more about usability than ideology will find this arrangement a boon.Apart from the new default apps, Ubuntu hasn’t changed much in overall look and feel this time around. Sure, there’s artsy heron-themed wallpaper, but longtime Ubuntu desktop users will find little else to poke at in this version. That development indicates that Ubuntu has matured to the point where it can focus on refining its feature set rather than massively reworking its elements in each new version.The changes in the default apps seem judicious rather than sweeping. Brasero, for instance, is a far more complete disc-burning utility than Serpentine, the relatively simple CD burner found in previous versions of Ubuntu.Hardy Heron still lacks a few features that I had hoped to see as defaults by now, such as a Desktop Effects Manager for Gnome. Downloading Compiz Configuration Settings Manager through apt-get (the command-line tool for handling packages) isn’t hard, but it should really be there in the first place. Without it, newbies have no idea how to turn on the desktop cube they’ve heard so much about. Also still absent is a decent theme manager to take advantage of Desktop Effects.Minor quibbles aside, Ubuntu 8.04 is the best-assembled and most polished Linux distribution I’ve ever used. Ubuntu 8.04 performs well where Windows XP and Vista screech to a halt, particularly on older hardware. And since it comes with OpenOffice.org, Firefox, Evolution Mail, and a host of other apps right out of the box, it may be the best way to breathe new life into a seemingly moribund PC.Fedora 9Fedora was born as an all-open-source alternative to the business-centric Red Hat Linux. As such, it enjoys a solid legacy of Linux development. Unfortunately, as the nonprofit cousin of a major commercial distribution, Fedora doesn’t always seem to get the attention it deserves. But last year, Fedora doffed the shadow of rival Ubuntu by releasing of Fedora 8, which offered a simple, graphical installer and the best hardware support we’d seen from the Fedora distribution. Nevertheless, it lagged behind Ubuntu in ease of installation and overall usability–largely because its commitment to Free and Open Source Software (FOSS) left it without complete drivers for some major hardware, including nVidia and ATI cards and various wireless cards. Any astute Linux user could add these, certainly, but the process was too geeky for average Joes who just wanted to give Linux a try.With version 9, Fedora has stepped up its ease-of-use game. Gnome 2.22 brings a host of great new features, including support for Webcam videos. A prerelease version of Xorg 7.4, however, causes problems with nVidia cards, preventing Desktop Effects–which is now standard in Fedora 9–from working. At posting time, this problem remained unresolved, though contributors to the Fedora Forums suggested that it would soon be corrected. Fedora 9 also has a newer kernel (2.6.25) than Ubuntu 8.04.One of the most important changes in the new Fedora is immediately visible: its Anaconda installer can dynamically resize NTFS hard-drive partitions, making the task of adding Fedora to existing Windows installations much easier. Ubuntu users have long enjoyed a similar feature, so it’s nice to see Fedora catch up. Another new feature of the installer is a one-click option for drive encryption. Overall, Fedora’s revamped install routine is the distribution’s best yet, and it nearly matches Ubuntu’s in simplicity and ease of use.I liked Fedora 9’s new PackageKit, a graphical interface for Fedora’s Yum update utility, too. PackageKit is the nicest update manager I’ve tried in Linux, with big, friendly icons for bug fixes and security updates. Also, like Ubuntu 8.04, Fedora 9 now uses PulseAudio to control sound devices throughout the OS.By default, Fedora includes SELinux, which enforces security policies throughout the OS. Developed by the U.S. National Security Agency, this app does an excellent job of alerting users to potential security threats and managing user authentication. Most users will find that the biggest benefit of SELinux is its management of root user authority: The program alerts you when you’ve had root privileges activated for more than a few minutes, so you can minimize your exposure from this vulnerability.For users who are already familiar with Linux, Fedora 9 is an excellent choice. Robust security features and installation options make it somewhat more versatile than Ubuntu, which offers a more streamlined (and therefore more restricted) installation. For most users, though, including millions interested in trying Linux for the first time, Fedora lacks the polish and ready-to-run simplicity of its more popular rival.Ubuntu 8.0.4 offers a level of functionality comparable to that of Mac OS and Windows, from delivery to installation to daily use. Unfortunately, the ties that bind all Linux distributions–primarily a lack of support for major Windows- and Mac-based business, design, and gaming applications–still hold Ubuntu back from mass popularity. For users with such moderate computing needs as Web browsing, e-mail, and basic document creation, however, Hardy is a compelling option.

Image courtesy of Gabriel Dichter, Ph.D., UNC School of Medicine. February 2, 2015 — Tantrums, irritability, self-injury, depression, anxiety are symptoms associated with autism, but they’re not considered core symptoms of the disorder. Researchers from the University of North Carolina (UNC) School of Medicine are challenging this assertion. They have used functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) to show that when it comes to the ability to regulate emotions, brain activity in autistic people is significantly different than brain activity in people without autism.The findings, published online in the Journal of Autism and Developmental Disorders as part of a special issue on emotion regulation, suggest that improving prefrontal cortex activity could directly help autistic people regulate their emotions and improve serious symptoms associated with the disorder, which affects millions of people in the United States.The discovery shows that “emotion regulation” symptoms have a biological explanation that can be visualized using fMRI. The symptoms do not seem to be merely associated with or a result of the core autism symptoms, which include repetitive behaviors, verbal and non-verbal communications problems, difficulties with social interactions and other cognitive issues.Gabriel Dichter, Ph.D., associate professor of psychiatry and psychology and senior author of the paper, said, “This research adds to the growing awareness that although autism is diagnosed on the basis of social impairment and repetitive behaviors, the importance of emotion regulation and all the behaviors that come with it — depression, tantrums, meltdowns, irritability — are very real and should be a focus of clinical services.”There are only two U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved medications to treat autism and neither treats core symptoms; they treat high rates of irritability and aggression. “We’ve known for a while that we need to pay attention to emotion regulation in people with autism,” Dichter said, “but we think these data suggest a neural basis for these problems and add credence to their ubiquity as core features of the disorder.”For this study, Dichter’s team recruited 15 controls and 15 young adults, age 18 to 30, with autism. Because it is well-documented that people with autism often have trouble regulating their emotions, Dichter’s team spent 45 minutes with each participant to teach them how to change their perception of an emotional stimulus before they entered the MRI scanner.During the study, while in the fMRI scanner, each participant viewed a series of pictures of human faces with no expression. Partway through viewing each picture, participants were asked to generate positive thoughts about the picture, or generate negative thoughts, or leave their emotional response unchanged.The researchers also used eye-tracking methods to ensure all participants continuously viewed the picture and to measure at high resolution the size of each participant’s pupils.These methods, along with self-reporting from participants, created checks and balances that ensured the accuracy of the data they collected from brain scans.They found that in the control group, the prefrontal cortex worked hard to modulate the emotional response that originated in the limbic system. This confirmed what other research had shown.The brain scans of people with autism were different. “The prefrontal cortex did not come online to the same extent,” Dichter said. “It was as though the brain region that’s needed to work hard to regulate emotional responses couldn’t activate to the same degree as it did in people without autism. This limited activation of the prefrontal cortex, not surprisingly, resulted in less modulation of the limbic regions.”The pupil data suggested that participants worked hard to fulfill the requirements of the study. They changed their emotional responses to the picture. But their brain scans suggest that people with autism did not use their prefrontal cortex to the same extent as people without autism.Thus, when faced with emotional situations, people with autism do not use their prefrontal cortices to regulate emotions to the same extent as people without autism. This in turn may lead to the “associated symptoms,” such as anxiety, tantrums, and irritability, which can be pervasive.Dichter’s team also found a correlation between the level of brain activity in the prefrontal cortex and the severity of a person’s autism. “There does seem to be an association between the ability to bring these brain regions online as needed during emotional situations and the severity of a person’s autism symptoms,” Dichter said.Next, Dichter wants to conduct a similar study with children.Future intervention research based on these findings could use cognitive behavior techniques to improve emotion regulation abilities for people with autism or brain stimulation techniques to improve activity in the prefrontal cortex during emotion regulation.For more information: www.med.unc.edu FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.

Easy quantification of myelin allows clinicians to follow myelination in the developing brain and monitor myelin degeneration in patients with demyelinating and neurodegenerative disorders. REMyDI is a feature of the SyMRI post-processing software from SyntheticMR.Measuring myelin volume with conventional magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) is challenging. With the REMyDI feature in SyMRI, clinicians can now get an automatic volume measurement of myelin from a single 5-6 minute quantitative MRI scan. The automatic post-processing is completed in less than 10 seconds.”The advantage of retrieving a myelin estimation from a quantitative MR sequence that can also provide relaxometry-based volumetry and multiple contrasts is that a large amount of information is collected using a single, six-minute long acquisition. At Karolinska we have used REMyDI in studies of MS-patients and patients with neurodegenerative diseases,” said Tobias Granberg, M.D., Ph.D., Karolinska University Hospital, Sweden.”The REMyDI feature is available in the SyMRI Research Edition package and will be available for clinical use in the SyMRI Neuro package in 2017.SyMRI is compatible with MR scanners from leading vendors and was demonstrated in the booths of SyntheticMR’s partners at RSNA.
