FRMF Penalizes Raja Supporters for Marrakech Vandalism

Rabat – On Monday, February 26, the Royal Moroccan Football Federation (FRMF) drafted a penalty against Raja team supporters for pandemonium during the Raja-KACM football match on February 25.Raja defeated KACM by 3-0 during Sunday’s “Botola-Maroc Telecom” for 2016-2017 season, but the triumph did not end well.Supporters of the green team, Raja, started a vehement diatribe with the supporters of the red team, KACM, which resulted in considerable material and financial loss for Marrakech Football stadium. The disciplinary committee of Royal Moroccan Football Federation decided to penalize Raja team supporters for vandalizing the stadium and throwing chairs at other spectators and law enforcement agents, which resulted in 14 injured, according to an announcement by the Crown Prosecutor Mohamed Abd Nabaoui, as reported by Akhbar Alyaoum.FRMF fined the Raja club MAD 50,000 and restricted Raja supporters from attending two upcoming matches.65 supporters of the green team were charged with “vandalism acts” and will face trial. read more

Afghanistan UN officials welcome direct talks between Government and Taliban

In a statement issued today by his spokesperson in New York, Mr. Ban welcomed the direct talks between Afghan Government and Taliban representatives, which were held yesterday in Pakistan. “[The Secretary-General] reiterates his support for an Afghan-led and Afghan-owned peace process. He expresses his appreciation for the commitment of the parties and the constructive role of the host, Pakistan,” said the statement. In a separate news release, Mr. Haysom, who is also head of the UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) also welcomed direct talks and urged both parties to move towards reconciliation and peace. Recalling that at last month’s briefing to the UN Security Council he had specifically urged direct talks between the parties, Mr. Haysom reiterated the Afghan people’s desire to end the pervasive violence affecting every aspect of their lives. “In the long term, peace is not a luxury, it is a necessity,” Haysom said. “I welcome the direct face-to-face engagement by the parties as the only way to achieving progress towards a negotiated agreement and ultimately the peace that Afghanistan deserves.” Noting the importance of acknowledging the talks as the beginning of what could be a long and challenging process, Mr. Haysom expressed his appreciation to the parties for taking this significant first step and to the Government of Pakistan for hosting the meeting. These talks should be recognized as the outcome of the recent concerted efforts at rebuilding relations between Afghanistan and Pakistan. read more

Texas Tech introduces Matt Wells as new football coach

LUBBOCK, Texas — Texas Tech started its introductory news conference for coach Matt Wells as the Big 12 Conference championship game kicked off on Saturday.Athletic director Kirby Hocutt used the timing to make a point.“We expect to be kicking off in Arlington, Texas, at the Big 12 Conference championship football game,” Hocutt said. “We’re not there today, but we’re going to get there, and we’re going to get there together. And we’re going to get there because we’ve got the leader behind me to show us the path.”Wells is familiar with the tools the explosive Tech offence has and believes the Red Raiders can make a jump quickly from this season’s 5-7 finish. Tech averaged 37.3 points per game in league play despite constant injury issues at quarterback.“The current talent on the team — this is a reload, not a rebuild,” Wells said. “There’s guys here that can play. These guys deserve the chance to win right now.”Wells’ coaching career started at Navy from 1997-01. He went to Tulsa (2002-06), New Mexico (2007-08, 2010) and Louisville (2009) before joining Gary Andersen’s staff at Utah State in 2011.Wells was elevated to head coach at his alma mater in 2013. He had a 44-34 record in six seasons at Utah State. The Aggies are 10-2 this year and headed to their fifth bowl in that span, and Wells was voted Mountain West Conference coach of the year for the second time. He was Utah State’s offensive co-ordinator in 2012, when the school won a program-best 11 games.The 45-year-old Wells said the decision to leave Utah State was difficult, but Texas Tech sold him on the chance to do something big.“It was a tough, and to be honest, a tough and emotional decision for me and a lot of that is because that was my school and I was an alumni there,” he said. “And I knew it would take somewhere special. Somewhere with a vision to where they wanted to go and how they wanted to go.”Wells replaced Kliff Kingsbury, who was fired after his third consecutive losing season. Kingsbury, a former star quarterback at Texas Tech, was 35-40 overall in six seasons.University President Lawrence Schovanec said Hocutt did a good job of finding the right person. He said the school was looking for someone with good character, integrity, class and a proven commitment to developing complete young men athletically and academically.“These standards are the characteristics of all of our athletics programs,” Schovanec said. “They are the qualities that resonate with Texas Tech University, with our culture, and that of all Red Raiders out there. Kirby, I want to thank you and congratulate you for bringing to Texas Tech University a person who meets every one of these expectations.”Things might not change much at Tech on offence. Utah State ranks third nationally with 47.2 points a game.The key might be getting Tech to play defence like Utah State. The Aggies have allowed at least 30 points only three times. They have an NCAA-best 18 interceptions, have recovered 10 fumbles and their plus-11 turnover margin is among the best in the country.___More AP college football: https://apnews.com/tag/Collegefootball and https://twitter.com/AP_Top25The Associated Press read more

No fiscal space for public servants to get bonus Jordan

Public servants hoping for a bonus this Christmas will be left disappointed, as Finance Minister Winston Jordan on Friday ruled out any bonus pay-out to State workers due to limited fiscal space.Finance Minister Winston JordanIn his revelation to the media, Jordan explained that countrywide infrastructure projects are ongoing. As such, he argued that because of these projects, money is being circulated back into the economy.“I can tell you that it will not happen this year,” the Minister said when asked about bonus for public servants. “The challenges are many and the resources are few.”In the absence of a bonus, Jordan explained that public servants still had much to be proud of as he pointed to the ongoing projects such as on the East Coast of Demerara (ECD) and the Cheddi Jagan International Airport (CJIA) expansion project.“The West Demerara road is close to completion. So there has been a hive of activity across the country. A lot of spending is taking place, so if only because of that, people should be happy because a lot of money is being injected into the economy,” Jordan said.Last year, public servants had waited with bated breath to hear if Government would announce a month tax-free bonus but were instead treated to a reduced amount.He later told reporters last year that Government simply did not have the monies available to make the one-month tax-free payment to members of the public service.The Minister in providing some insight on Government’s proposal to reform the public service through its public servants, pointed to comprehensive institutionalisation of the tenets of results-based management. He pointed too to the recently opened public service college and its role in revitalising workers.

Five people dead at retirement home in France after reportedly falling ill

first_img FIVE PEOPLE HAVE died and more than a dozen others are in serious condition at a retirement home in the south of France following a case of suspected food poisoning. Some 22 people at the privately operated Cheneraie residence in Lherm, a town south of Toulouse began showing symptoms including vomiting after dinner on Sunday, police said. Four deaths were initially announced by officials, and a source close to the investigation later told AFP that a fifth person had died.The victims — four women and a man — were aged between 72 and 95.The grand-daughter of one woman who died, aged 95, said she had been served a Perigord salad, a regional speciality that includes duck, ham and foie gras, a duck liver pate.Toulouse prosecutor Dominique Alzeari said 19 of the 82 residents remained under supervision, 16 of whom were in very poor condition although their lives were not thought to be in danger.Alzeari said investigations into apparent cases of “involuntary homicide and unintentional injury” would be lengthy, and underscored the “serious” nature of the affair.The meals involved have been kept for analysis, the regional health agency said, and residents were being questioned about what they ate.The management company Korian, which runs the home that opened in 2006 under licence from the French government, said in a statement that it “produces meals on site with its own kitchen teams”.But the son of one of the women who died told reporters he had learned from the home’s doctor that the meal concerned had been delivered from elsewhere.Shock“I am very angry. It is unacceptable,” said Alain Lepeyre, noting his family paid “close to €3,000 a month” for the home to look after his mother, who suffered from Alzheimer’s. Marie, who rushed to check on her father, who was not affected, choked up as she recounted how “he was in shock, he collapsed when he saw me”.“He was crying,” she added, explaining he became aware of what happened after watching television in his room.Korian says it runs the largest network of retirement homes in Europe, with more than 800 sites in five countries, representing 78,000 beds.In January, the company announced its acquisition of the retirement home from Omega, a French group that operates 12 homes in France.“We learned yesterday of these four deaths and illnesses, and that there is suspected food poisoning, with an investigation and analyses under way, and we won’t have any comment while awaiting the results,” Korian said in a statement.“If food poisoning is determined, this situation nonetheless remains quite rare in a sector that is subject to strict oversight in terms of food security,” the AD-PA association of retirement home directors said.“We suspect food poisoning because these events occurred after the meal,” deputy prosecutor Marie-Paule Demiguel told BFM television, adding that kitchens at the residence would also be investigated.On the Paris stock market, Korian shares slumped more than 7% at one stage on Monday before recovering slightly.- © AFP 2019 By AFP Apr 3rd 2019, 10:50 AM 23,013 Views Five people dead at retirement home in France after reportedly falling ill from eating duck salad The five individuals are aged between 76 and 95 years old. 13 Comments Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article Wednesday 3 Apr 2019, 10:50 AM https://jrnl.ie/4574330 Short URL Image: Shutterstock/P-Kheawtasang Share167 Tweet Email3 Image: Shutterstock/P-Kheawtasanglast_img read more

The British government have been unable to deliver on that.”That stance was echoed by Leo Varadkar, who spoke alongside Juncker at Government Buildings today.He said:“There is an urgent need to intensify our efforts if we are to get there. We expect the UK to honour their commitments on the backstop in full.”Juncker, both at the press briefing and a later address to the Dáil, reiterated Europe’s commitment to Ireland in the Brexit negotiations.“We wanted to make it clear again and again that Ireland is not alone. We have Ireland backed by 26 member states and by the Commission – this will not change. I am strongly against any temptation to try to isolate Ireland and not to conclude a deal on Ireland. Ireland has to be part of the deal.”Speaking in the Dáil, he said:“Ireland will come first. There are those that think the other 26 countries will abandon Ireland for a deal that suits them.“Ireland’s border is Europe’s border and it is our priority.“Two years ago this week, the British people made a sovereign decision to leave our Union. I wish they had made a different one. But it is their decision and I respect it fully.“However, other member states, and Ireland in particular, should not pay the price for that choice. This is why when it comes to Brexit, I have always said that it is a case of “Ireland first”.“Ireland stands at the heart of Europe.” 116 Comments Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

County grants AMR 2year extension to provide ambulance service

first_imgWith its contract set to expire Sept. 30, American Medical Response received a two-year extension Tuesday to provide ambulance service in Clark County.The extension was approved 2-1 by the Clark County commissioners, who were acting in their role as the Emergency Services Medical District 2 board.The vote had been twice delayed as commissioners encouraged AMR to whittle down the recommended increases to the average patient charge.Initially, AMR, which provides ambulance service to the county with the exception of Camas-Washougal and north county, estimated it would have to increase patient charges by 20 percent to account for revenue losses due to a growing population of uninsured and underinsured patients.AMR doesn’t get any public money for its service, instead earning its profits from billings.Under the contract approved Tuesday, patients will pay a 5 percent increase. The average patient charge will increase from $753 to $795, according to information supplied by Clark Regional Emergency Services Agency. Insured patients will pay an additional $8 co-pay and uninsured patients will pay an additional $34.AMR transports approximately 4,000 people a year in Clark County to local hospitals. In 2009, 3,050 patients were insured and 712 patients were uninsured.Terms changedThe fee increase was knocked down from 20 to 5 percent by changing a few terms of AMR’s contract. For example, response times will be rolled back to 2004 standards (an extra minute in suburban areas, two extra minutes in rural areas) and the county reduced the administrative fee that AMR pays for the contract.Commissioners Marc Boldt and Steve Stuart approved the contract extension, while Commissioner Tom Mielke voted no.Mielke said he didn’t want to support any fee increase.“It’s just a tough time right now,” Mielke said.But Boldt and Stuart acknowledged that it’s through no fault of AMR that a growing number of people are uninsured or underinsured or that the reimbursement rate from Medicaid has decreased. Between 2000 and 2009, the number of uninsured patients grew from 14 percent to 20 percent, according to CRESA. Patients on Medicare now account for 35 percent of patients, up from 17 percent of patients in 2000. “If we don’t move forward with this, the taxpayers will pay more,” Stuart said. “This small fee increase that affects one percent of the population will save money for 99 percent of the population.”Had the commissioners allowed the contract to expire, there would have been an open market for ambulance service in the county, which likely would have been more expensive.last_img read more

Down and out Videocon JP Associates IVRCL may be dragged to NCLTs

first_imgThe Reserve Bank of India (RBI) seal is pictured on a gate outside the RBI headquarters in Mumbai, India, February 2, 2016.Reuters fileThe Reserve Bank of India has sent the second list of over 40 large corporate defaulters that include Videocon, JP Associates, IVRCL, JSPL and Visa Steel, among others, to be referred to the National Company Law Tribunal (NCLT), reported CNBC-TV18 on Tuesday, quoting sources.Financial daily Economic Times had said on Monday that the central bank was likely to advise the lenders to haul these companies to the NCLT for bankruptcy proceedings.”One should not think that just the first set of companies that have been identified alone are the problem. There is problem certainly down the line also,” R Gandhi, Former Deputy Governor, RBI, told television channel ETNow.Financial website Moneycontrol.com said that some other loan defaulting companies — Uttam Galva, Castex, Jayswal Neco, Ruchi Soya, Nagarjuna Oil & Orchid Chemicals, East Coast Energy, SEL Manufacturing, Soma Enterprises, Asian Colour, Ispat Coated and Unity Infraprojects — are among the fresh list identified by the central bank to be referred to the NCLT under the newly enacted Insolvency and Bankruptcy Code (IBC) 2016.CNBC -TV18 had reported that these companies would be sent to NCLT if the debt issue is not resolved by mid-December and the list is likely to be released in September.Economic Times noted that most of the companies on the list are from the infrastructure and power sectors. It said that when contacted for a reaction, JSPL told ETNow: “As a policy, we don’t respond to speculative queries.”In each case, the debt level varies between Rs 3,000 crore and Rs 50,000 crore.

At that time, the banks and these accounts should have resolved their cases.

BMW shows handsfree driving on Autobahn w video

first_img Volkswagen announces ‘Temporary Auto Pilot’ with advanced features The video message was that the car was capable of driving on its own in certain circumstances but the driver is the one responsible, and the driver must be able to take over the driving task at all times.

With the CDC system, the car can brake, accelerate and pass other vehicles while analyzing the traffic conditions. This BMW system uses radar, cameras, laser scanners, and ultrasound distance sensors to get the information it needs.According to BMW the system can also steer the car to pass a slower vehicle. If the car senses there’s a slow mover in front of it, it will search for an open lane where it can safely merge, pass the slow car, and return to the original lane. “Our main challenge was to develop algorithms that can handle entirely new situations. In principle, the system works on all freeways that we have mapped out beforehand with [a] centimeter accuracy,” said Nico Kaempchen, project manager of Highly Automated Driving. at BMW Group Research and Technology. This is no out of the box prototype destined for car showrooms in 2013, however. The video, with its cautious comments about driverless driving and a needed driver, is nowhere near showoff mode as to how the driver can just leave the driving to the vehicle tomorrow. The Autobahn feat was to show a system that might be available ten to 15 years from now, or, as the BMW put it, a “technology study” for use in advancing existing technologies.Overall, the European vendor approach in self-driving cars is not an aggressive play for headlines but rather a promotion of “driver-assistance” technologies that will incrementally lead to more and more driving automation.Driverless technology, say industry observers, will first show its face as a luxury option for high end cars before settling into the mainstream marketplace.Auto makers are selling cars with adaptive cruise control which applies the brakes during highway driving if traffic slows. BMW, according to Technology Review, will work on that kind of capability in its upcoming i3 series of electric cars. The company will offer a “traffic-jam feature” that allows the car to speed up, slow down, and steer on its own at speeds of up to 25 miles per hour, as long as the driver leaves a hand on the wheel.

The free-standing features could be encapsulated in stretchable, conformal configurations. Park et al. demonstrated applications in the form of reconfigurable antenna, tunable by changing geometries and reversibly movable interconnections to use the constructs as mechanical switches. The free-standing 3-D structures were advantageous to minimize the number and space between interconnections for higher integration, as seen with microLED arrays. The results are now published on Science Advances. Advanced technologies that form 3-D conductive structures with high-resolution, high aspect ratios and minimal error of displacement are important to increase device integrity. Device deformability is a key consideration for free-form electronics, including stretchable electronics, wearable electronics, soft actuators and robotics. These electronic devices typically require conformation with movable, arbitrary shapes such as joints or arms, or the soft surfaces of living organisms. Realizing such stretchable devices with conventional materials such as silicon are a challenge due to their brittleness. Materials scientists have therefore developed diverse conductive materials with excellent stretchability in the form of wavy thin metals, metallic networks and elastomeric composites, yet these processes are unable to form scalable 3-D structures. In addition, 3-D printed, and thermally annealed metals are relatively stiff and rigid causing damage to soft, tissue-like substrates. In the experimental setup, Park et al. connected a nozzle to an ink reservoir or pressure controller. The materials scientists used EGaIn (75.5 percent gallium and 24.5 percent indium alloy by weight) as the ink and controlled the distance between the nozzle tip and polymer substrate to deliver the ink. Using scanning electron microscopy (SEM), they viewed the EGaIn pattern printed with complex 2-D and 3-D geometries and used the technique to print more diverse patterns such as interconnects of electric circuits with high resolution.

Credit: Science Advances, doi: 10.1126/sciadv.aaw2844 Journal information: Science Advances Comparatively, liquid metals such as eutectic gallium-indium alloy (EGaIn) or gallium-indium-tin alloy (Galinstan) are intrinsically stretchable, with low toxicity and minimal volatility for superb electrical conductivity—comparable to solid metals. Direct ink printing with a nozzle can form free-standing 3-D structures at room temperature by stacking droplets of liquid metal upon one another but the resulting resolution is not suited to build electronic devices. In the present work therefore, Park et al. report a high-resolution printing method with liquid metal for its direct reconfiguration into 3-D electrode patterns through a nozzle, under ambient conditions. When they applied DC or AC bias to monitor electrical breakdown, the temperature too increased in the experimental setup affecting the mechanical stability of the EGaIn 3-D features. The constructs maintained their initial free-standing 3-D structure without structural collapse at 5000C for 30 minutes. After repeated heating and cooling at room temperature, the oxide skin of the 3-D feature slightly wrinkled due to thermal expansion between the oxide shell and EGaIn core. Park et al. tested the electrical contact of direct-printed and reconfigured liquid metals and measured the dependence of total resistance on the length of the printed channel to show that the resistance of EGaIn patterns significantly increased with time under ambient conditions. As a proof-of-principle of the reconfigurable electronics developed in the present work, Park et al. demonstrated the formation of a reconfigurable antenna with ability to modify its resonance frequency and radiation properties by changing its geometry. For this, the scientists formed a dual coil antenna structure on a glass slide by directly printing EGaIn. During reconfiguration, EGaIn formed a 3-D bridged interconnect, whose resonance frequency the scientists first determined, followed by their use to selectively operate three different light-emitting diodes (LEDs) with red, green and blue light emissions. The reconfigurable, free-standing interconnect maintained its resistance to reliably operate all LEDs at 3V during repeated detachment and connection of multiple reconfiguration steps. The free-standing 3-D interconnects formed using the process of reconfiguration were advantageous to build cross-geometries in a single XY plane, instead of using multiple layers to thereby prevent unwanted electric contact. For this, Park et al. demonstrated both transverse and longitudinal interconnects of EGaIn for a 4 x 4 array of microLEDs on a flexible polymer film to prevent short circuiting. Using the method, Park et al. minimized the number of interconnections integrated in a miniature device, as the 3-D pattern could efficiently minimize the number and space of interconnections. In this way, Young-Geun Park and co-workers demonstrated high-resolution 3-D printing using liquid metal and showed its application for stretchable 3-D integrations that are difficult to achieve with conventional engineering. Compared to existing 3-D printing techniques, this method can form fine, free-standing 3-D structures of electrodes with reconfigurable patterns. As an example, Park et al. engineered a reconfigurable antenna capable of modifying its resonance frequency via geometric changes. They also presented reversibly movable 3-D interconnections as mechanical switches that could facilitate higher compact integration in miniaturized devices. The scientists expect the high-resolution 3-D reconfiguration method to offer a promising new additive manufacturing strategy for highly integrated and stretchable next-generation electronic devices.

The fracture energy of the oxide skin connected the nozzle tip as a “rope” during lift-off. Park et al. measured the maximum velocities for different diameters of filaments to demonstrate different examples and formed 2-D and 3-D features with repeatable reconfiguration. During the process of reconfiguration, the scientists could lift-off a preprinted filament upright from a substrate without fracturing the construct. The observed stable electrodes could withstand electrical load to become increasingly integrated and miniaturized in electric devices. To verify the suitability of EGaIn electrodes as interconnects, Park et al. conducted electrical breakdown tests thereafter. This document is subject to copyright.

By leveraging image overlay tools available on Synapse 3D, radiologists can use volumetric imaging to generate 3-D models and quantitative analysis of organs and other parts of the anatomy,” said Jim Morgan, vice president of Medical Informatics at Fujifilm Medical Systems Inc. “Referring physicians and radiologists can then leverage the images and data to develop treatment plans, predict and prepare for complications during procedures, as well as educate patients about their conditions prior to treatment.”At Keck Hospital, USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and Hospital in Los Angeles, radiologists scan an estimated 400 patients annually who present for a consultation for renal cancer surgery, and around 300 of those patients eventually undergo surgery. Radiologists and surgeons there use Synapse 3D to develop virtual 3-D models for the evaluation of renal masses and to develop treatment plans.The hospital’s Abdominal Imaging Section Chief and Medical Director of Imaging, Vinay A. Duddalwar, M.D., FRCR, describes a recent case in which he developed a 3D model for surgery on a patient with a renal mass. The patient presented with pain in the abdomen and with bleeding in his urine. After undergoing a single-phase CT scan at another center, he was referred to doctors at the USC Norris Comprehensive Cancer Center and Hospital where he underwent a standard of care multiphase-CT scan. Dr. Duddalwar used Synapse 3D to evaluate the study. “We have standard protocols in Synapse 3D that we use to enhance the visualization of the mass and extract information that the urologist then uses. In this particular case, we looked at the prior CT scan, but evaluated the multiphase-CT scan of the tumor on Synapse 3D, using all of the phases in Synapse,” said Duddalwar, M.D.He created the virtual 3-D model by registering all four-volume datasets. “Synapse 3D allows you to overlay and fuse the images from phases one, two, three, and four together. It allows the user to subtract the blood vessels or subtract the collecting system from the kidney so we can see only the functioning parenchyma or only the blood vessels,” Duddalwar explains. “It allows us to configure different visualization streams so you can see everything, extract features or superimpose another, making the tumor transparent.””Synapse 3D gave us the diagnostic confidence that we needed to determine that it was a low-grade tumor. The reasons were, one, it didn’t enhance very much; two, it was fairly uniform; and three, its shape was small and round. The virtual 3D models helped in conveying this information to the surgeon,” said Duddalwar. “Synapse 3D helped increase our diagnostic confidence in determining this was a low-grade tumor and in explaining our recommendation to the surgeon and the patient.” Synapse 3D offers more than 30 clinical functions to choose from, with many functions utilizing Fujifilm’s Image Intelligence capability. It is fully integrated with Synapse PACS and Synapse Cardiovascular, and creates a centralized enterprise-shared 3-D solution. The Synapse 3D snapshot workflow creates a unique closed loop workflow from modality labs, to Radiologists and Cardiologists, to Surgery with no redundant rendering work required along the way, creating faster workflows.
