Real Madrid Outraged at Barcelona Footballer Gerard Pique

By Safaa KasraouiRabat – Barcelona (FC) Defender, Gerard Pique, has taken everyone by surprise by criticizing Real Madrid’s values following the France Vs Spain friendly match, which took place Tuesday at France Stadium, in France.The 30-year-old player explained his opinion by mentioning that people were talking about the arbitrary mistakes made during FCB vs Paris Saint Germain final round of c1 match, which ended with a 6-1 victory in favor of FCB on March 8. “Everybody talks about the mistakes of the match, but when Real Madrid had won the champions league last season on a clearly offside goal, nobody talked,” said Pique.He added, “I don’t have a personal problem with Real Madrid players, but i would never work for Real Madrid, because I don’t like Real Madrid values,” he added.The statement of the FCB player did not go unnoticed on the side of RMD players. For his part, Real Madrid defender, José Igancio Fernandez Iglesias, commonly known as Nacho, said that “Real Madrid is used to such allegations, we focus on our case, some people share their opinion and others do not, but I am proud the values I have acquired since I have joined the club.”According to a media report by Goal platform, Real Madrid defender, Sergio Ramos, has also expressed his thoughts concerning Pique’s allegation, saying that he was not surprised by it. He added that he would be surprised if this comment had been uttered by Lionel Messi.He continued, saying that Pique’s comments will change nothing in Real Madrid. One can appreciate him as great player, Ramos explained, but that doesn’t mean that his club would really be disturbed because of to Pique’s statement. read more

Economists scale back BC growth projections for this year and next

VANCOUVER – Economists are revising growth projections for B.C.’s economy this year and next.The B.C. Economic Forecast Council, which advises the provincial government, says it expects the economy to grow by 2.1 per cent this year, down from the 2.2 per cent the council predicted two months ago.The council also says the B.C. economy will grow by 2.5 per cent next year, down from 2.6 per cent.However, the forecast average for the period from 2015 to 2017 remains the same at 2.6 per cent.Finance Minister Mike de Jong announced the numbers at the Vancouver Board of Trade on Thursday, saying while he’s reassured by the predictions, the province must still be cautious with its finances because it depends on trade with countries where economic recovery is uncertain.De Jong says the government remains committed to balancing the books when the provincial budget is tabled next month. by The Canadian Press Posted Jan 17, 2013 3:02 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Economists scale back B.C. growth projections for this year and next read more

POWER BILL PROJECTIONS WAY OFF SAYS HOUSE COMMITTEE

first_img House of Assembly halted due to busted audio system PNP Government to cut back over a million in projects Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsAppProvidenciales, 16 Dec 2015 – The country reported a near $19 million dollar surplus and yet, basic essentials like toilet tissue is sometimes un-purchased due to a reported disconnect between the Government Treasury and the Central Purchasing Unit. The problem was addressed in the Findings Report of the Appropriations Committee during House of Assembly debate; that report was tabled along with the request of Government for more money to run the country. Hon Ruth Blackman, Appropriations Committee Chair: “…did not have bleach, toilet tissue, hand towel, hand sanitizers etc… and this was of great concern to us when we found out that because of some technical glitch or something that is going on between the Treasury and the Central Purchasing Unit, that the funds are not allocated to the Central Purchasing Unit as quickly as it should.”Hon Ruth Blackman, government appointed member added that electricity bills being unpaid and the cost for preparations and precautions related to fending off Ebola, Chikungunya Virus and Dengue Fever are the biggest expenses in the budget supplementary next to education. While the Appropriations Committee was impressed with the ability of government departments to keep spending down; they were equally unimpressed with the Permanent Secretaries under budgeting of power bills; more money was requested to pay off arrears.“…by many departments for increased funding to meet the cost of electricity for the financial year or they was under budgeting in some cases, and Mr. Speaker this was of great concern to the Committee particularly that during the main Appropriation hearings we were confidently told by the Permanent Secretaries that appeared that there was sufficient money within their allocation to meet the cost of electricity, however we found out that Permanent Secretaries still had arrears from the last financial year that had to be met.” Recommended for you Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp House Convenes with business development bill on the agenda Related Items:appropriations committee, central processing unit, power bill, ruth blackmanlast_img read more

Inside ALMs Digital Leap of Faith

first_img It’s hardly the first time a major media organization has attempted to integrate a house of mutually relevant but separately operated brands. The key difference here, according to ALM’s editorial director, George Haj, is that this reorganization is not driven solely by a desire to cut costs or necessarily increase efficiency. No redundancies have resulted, and no layoffs will occur. Haj says the opportunities for journalists have never been greater. A reporter for the Connecticut Law Tribune, for example, whose website receives an average of 32,000 visitors each month, theoretically now has access to ALM’s overall audience of six million business professionals, provided the content he or she produces is sufficiently relevant and compelling. The business media and events firm has undergone a comprehensive reimagining of its editorial structure, aimed at shifting the company from a large bucket of related but independent brands to a cohesive, integrated news organization serving the legal, financial, real estate, and insurance sectors. Updating the Business Model Six months after being reacquired by Wasserstein & Co. for $417 million, in 2014, the company purchased b2b media and information firm Kennedy Information’s Consulting Research & Advisory division, a notable departure from the company’s legal-centric portfolio. A $40 million acquisition of Summit Professional Networks, an insurance industry publisher, followed just two weeks later. In many ways, the reorganization is a manifestation of the extent to which ALM has evolved from its roots as the publishing company formerly known as American Lawyer Media. A Different Kind of Reorganization “The brands are still very important to us. In many places, they have very deep connections to their local community, particularly our dailies,” Haj continues. “We don’t want to lose that. We’re trying to maintain the local coverage but also expose those audiences to a much bigger palette of news stories that we think will be very appealing to them.” Still, the reorganization’s status as a dreaded corporate maneuver in today’s media industry is not without reason, even in the absence of widespread layoffs. Througohut the process, ALM proactively sought employee cooperation and input. A “Stand Up for Content” initiative was implemented, under which employees formed focus groups to brainstorm and pitch ideas for the new editorial structure to management. Striking a Balance “ALM is looking at adjacent markets to legal that have many of the same characteristics,” ALM’s chief marketing officer, Lenny Izzo, told Folio: at the time. “We didn’t do it just to be more efficient,” Haj, promoted from Southern regional editor-in-chief as part of the shuffle, tells Folio:. “It really was to get more stories to bigger and better audiences. Under our old structure, those 170 people were sliced into a few dozen brands. Some of the staffs were as small as four or five people. It was very difficult to get a lot of sharing, a lot of coordination.”center_img ALM hopes to change that. “Previously, if you were a reporter in Miami, there weren’t really a lot of places you could go unless you moved to New York or Washington. I think this will allow us to retain talent and create great opportunities for people to move around the company, within verticals, in a way that just was not possible before,” Haj tells Folio:. “Instead of each brand hosting their own stories and being somewhat limited, technologically, in how we could share them, we are now working on Law.com as kind of the entryway for a lot of our coverage. We’re hosting about a quarter of our legal stories on Law.com each day, and by doing that we’re able to put them on multiple websites, in multiple newsletters, and get a much broader audience there.” For the past serveral years, the term “reorganization” has carried with it a general sense of dread in the publishing industry, often a harbinger of reduced frequencies, shuttered titles, and laid off employees. Haj cites, as an example, recent Department of Labor regulations about the fiduciary responsibilities of investment advisors, a story which was picked up by three separate journalists within ALM’s legal, financial, and insurance groups. The hope behind the reorganization is that, going forward, the curating hand of the theme desks will allow ALM to leverage its editorial expertise to produce one, multi-faceted story that can then be deployed to all relevant audiences. “The new structure really allows us to be relentlessly digital,” says Haj. “In our news meetings, we don’t talk about print at all. Is print still there? Sure. We’ve got magazines, we’ve got weeklies, we’ve got daily newspapers that have to be fed, but for the first time, in our conversations with the editors, everything starts and ends with digital. That’s been a big shift.” The challenge is embracing the digital revolution at scale while still maintaining the relationships ALM’s portfolio brands have worked so hard to foster with their respective audiences. Under the reorganization, ALM’s 170 reporters and editors — who populate brands and verticals like The American Lawyer or Credit Union Times — will work closely with a series of “theme desk editors” to develop stories that might resonate audiences across multiple brands. Earlier this year, ALM acquired Legal Week from Incisive Media, a move that expanded the company’s global footprint but likely brought with it some further overlap with ALM’s existing portfolio of brands. Two months later, ALM folded the print edition of Inside Counsel, saying the title’s audience had, by and large, migrated to digital. As the company continues to emphasize wide ranging digital coverage of its served markets, it’s easy to foresee other print editions enduring the same fate.last_img read more

Titanic Revelations Bodies of ThirdClass Passengers were Tossed Back into the Sea

first_imgAccording to the recently recovered passenger records from RMS Titanic, the third class passengers who died when the liner sank were dumped back in the freezing waters so that the bodies belonging to the higher classes could be saved. The crew of CS Mackay-Bennett, the ship that recovered the majority of bodies from the cold Atlantic waters, was overwhelmed with the operation and they came up with a tough solution — to bring aboard the bodies of first and second class and cast the poorest passengers back into the ocean.CS MacKay-BennettThe recovery of the bodies lasted from April until May 1912. The criteria for distinguishing the rich from the poor were the clothes they were wearing, and what they had in their pockets. The Mackay-Bennett crew kept records of what they found on each body, and if it belonged to a first or second class passenger, it was embalmed and stored for the journey back.RMS Titanic prepares to leave port, 1912.Although it sounds cruel, the crew on Mackay-Bennett didn’t bring the decision out of carelessness for the passengers, but because of the circumstances of the time. They had a very limited space while embalming materials were also in short supply.Lifeboat B, found adrift by the Mackay-Bennett during its mission to recover the bodies of those who died in the disaster.The crew was forced to prioritize which of the bodies would be brought back to shore, and they did the simple math. There were 334 bodies recovered of which 116 got buried at sea, most of whom were third-class passengers and crew members.Group of survivors of the Titanic disaster aboard the Carpathia after being rescued.The Daily Echo reported that the people who worked in the offices receiving the bodies were just as exhausted and had to close the offices so that they could take a break.All this is evident in the 181 telegrams detailing the correspondence between Mackay-Bennett’s Captain, Frederick Lander, New York, Halifax in Nova Scotia, and the White Star Line employees. A total of 209 bodies were brought ashore in Halifax, where a curling rink was transformed into a temporary morgue. It was the place where the bodies were gathered and identified with great diligence and respect by coroners from across the region.Titanic’s wooden lifeboats in New York Harbor following the disaster.In 1934, White Star Line merged with Cunard Line, and all the documents, including the Titanic passenger records, went into a dumpster.Luckily, an employee recovered them, and they were kept in his family until 1980 when historian Charles Haas purchased them. It took him many years to restore those documents, and now Mr. Haas has released them on his online site, The Titanic Channel.The story of RMS TitanicThere is one message sent from Halifax to the Mackay-Bennett which reads: “Absolutely essential you should bring to port all bodies you can possibly accommodate.”After being lowered into the sea, Boat 13 drifted under the descending Boat 15.The response of the rescue vessel: “A careful record has been made of all papers, money, and valuables found on bodies. Would it not be better to bury all bodies at sea unless specially requested by relatives to preserve them.”Read another story from us: The Titanic survivor no one believed was genuineJust like 9/11, the Titanic catastrophe marked an era, and everyone was touched by it. Regarding the telegrams, Mr. Haas said: “The collection develops in great detail how difficult the process after the sinking was. They candidly show the immense stress everyone involved was under.”last_img read more

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

The scanner also comes with a HeartFlow FFR-CT starter pack.Find more information on this system in these related articles:New Cardiovascular CT Technology Entering the MarketNew Technology Highlights on the ACC 2019 Exhibit Floor Digital Pathology | July 11, 2019 VIDEO: Integrating Digital Pathology With Radiology Toby Cornish, M.D., Ph.D., associate professor and medical director of informatics at the University of Colorado School of Medicine, explains how the subspecialty of digital pathology has evolved in recent years, the benefits of integrating pathology and radiology, and how artificial intelligence (AI) may smooth the transition, at the 2019 Society of Imaging Informatics in Medicine (SIIM) annual meeting.  Related content:itnTV “Conversations”: The Accuray Philosophy Find more SCCT news and videos Breast Imaging | April 18, 2019 VIDEO: Age, Interval and Other Considerations for Breast Screening In a keynote lecture at the Society of Breast Imaging (SBI)/American College of Radiology (ACR) 2019 Symposium, Diana Miglioretti, Ph.D., dean’s professor of biostatistics at UC Davis Health, discussed risk-stratified breast cancer screening and its potential to improve the balance of screening benefits to harms by tailoring screening intensity and modality to individual risk factors.Read the article “How Risk Stratification Might Affect Women’s Health”Read the article “FDA Proposes New Rules for Mammography Reporting and Quality Improvement”Watch the VIDEO: A Discussion on Proposed FDA Rules for Mammography Reporting Related CT Calcium Scorining Content:VIDEO: New Cholesterol Guidelines Support CT Calcium Scoring for Risk Assessment — Interview with Matthew Budoff, M.D.CT Calcium Scoring Becoming a Key Risk Factor AssessmentACC and AHA Release Updated Cholesterol Guidelines for 2018VIDEO: CT Calcium Scoring to Screen For Who Should Take Statins — Interview with Matthew Budoff, M.D. Nuclear Imaging | August 24, 2017 VIDEO: PET vs. SPECT in Nuclear Cardiology and Recent Advances in Technology Prem Soman, M.D., director of nuclear cardiology at the Heart and Vascular Institute, University of Pittsburgh, and president-elect of the American Society of Nuclear Cardiology (ASNC), explained advances in PET and SPECT imaging and the learning curve involved in reading scans from the new CZT SPECT cameras.

Israels Delek looks to increase stake in Cyprus gas field Update 2

first_imgBy Elias HazouIsraeli conglomerate Delek Group are in talks to buy an additional 19.9 per cent stake of the Aphrodite offshore gas field from their partner, Texas-based Noble Energy, for about $155 million (€141 million).In a statement to the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange on Monday, Delek said the negotiations with Noble are at an early stage and any deal would need various regulatory approvals.Noble have a 70 per cent stake in the field, which is located in Block 12 and estimated to contain 4.54 trillion cubic feet of natural gas. Delek, through two subsidiaries, hold the remaining 30 percent.Noble released this brief statement:“We do not discuss ongoing commercial negotiations, as a matter of business practice. However, we can confirm that we are in preliminary and nonbinding discussions with Delek and other parties about acquiring working interest in our Block 12 license holdings.“Those discussions are continuing, and we have not finalized any agreement with any party, including Delek.”Commenting on the issue on Tuesday, energy minister Giorgos Lakkotrypis called it a positive development.It indicated interest in investment in the project, at a time when fuel and gas prices were now starting to fall, he added.Delek’s move may be prompted by complications in Israel, where they will have to gradually exit the Tamar reservoir as well as sell their holdings in two smaller offshore reservoirs. Israeli authorities have accused Delek and Noble of constituting a cartel.In its 2014 annual report, Noble spoke of the potential for a farm-out arrangement of their working interest in Cyprus’ Block 12.It’s understood the company tends to keep around 40 per cent of its working interest in its various concessions, thus spreading the risk – standard practice in the industry.In the same report, Noble said they were evaluating development scenarios for Block 12 and planned to submit a plan of development to the government this year.In March of this year, Lakkotrypis told an energy conference in Nicosia that the Americans were poised to declare the Aphrodite field commercially viable “within the next few weeks.”And in April, Delek announced that in the second half of the year the Aphrodite partners planned to submit to the government a notice declaring the reservoir ‘commercial’ along with a development plan.You May LikeLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoYahoo SearchYou’ve Never Seen Luxury Like This On A Cruise Ship.
