Rabat – A new leaked video shows a police officer from the Polisario Front military group describing the suffering of the Sahrawi people living in the Tindouf camps in Algeria.He calls upon international human rights organizations to take action against “human rights abuses in the camps.”The video was released by Laayoune TV on YouTube on Saturday. It shows a police officer, who has been working for the Polisario Front, dressed in his uniform, openly denouncing “human rights” abuses in the Tindouf camps. “I have been working with the military groups of Polisario Front since 2007. And I want to tell the International human rights organizations that we are being abused by the Polisario Front,” police officer Khatri Weld Saleh weld Elouali.“International human rights organizations should visit the camps to survey the injustice, arrests, and the abuse that the Sahrawi people are experiencing, in addition to their suffering from the high temperature and the scarcity of potable water,” he explained.He goes on to say that only the Polisario leaders and authorities benefit from humanitarian aid, whereas “only suffering is left for us.”“These elite [the Polisario leaders and authorities] own luxury houses in Europe and other countries,” he added. read more
2 March 2009The most advanced nations when it comes to information and communication technology (ICT) are found in northern Europe, with Sweden topping the list, according to a new ranking released today by the United Nations of 154 countries worldwide. The ICT Development Index (IDI), produced by the UN International Telecommunication Union (ITU), compared developments in these countries over a five-year period from 2002 to 2007 using indicators such as households with a computer, the number of Internet users and computer literacy levels.“The report shows that overall the magnitude of the global digital divide remains unchanged between 2002 and 2007. Despite significant improvements in the developing world, the gap between the ICT haves and have-nots remains,” the agency said in a news release. The research found that the most advanced countries in ICT are from northern Europe, with the exception of the Republic of Korea, which ranks second, followed by Denmark, the Netherlands, Iceland and Norway. These countries are followed by other, mainly high-income countries from Europe, Asia and North America. Western and northern Europe and North America are the regions with the highest IDI scores, and most countries from these regions are among the top 20 ICT economies, according to the ITU.The agency added that poor countries, in particular the least developed countries (LDCs), remain at the lower end of the index with limited access to ICT infrastructure, including fixed and mobile telephony, Internet and broadband. Given the close relationship between ICT level and gross domestic product (GDP), many of the poorer countries, especially in Africa, rank further down in the IDI, with little change in ranking since 2002, ITU reported.Some developing countries, though, have moved up considerably in the Index over the five-year period, including Pakistan, Saudi Arabia, China and Viet Nam, partly due to high mobile cellular growth, coupled with an increase in Internet users. ITU added that both developed and developing countries have increased their ICT levels by more than 30 per cent over the five-year period, but developing countries are still lagging behind on ICT access and usage. The data also showed that there has been a clear shift away from fixed to mobile cellular telephone use, and that by the end of 2008, there were over three times more mobile cellular subscriptions than fixed telephone lines globally. Two thirds of those are now in the developing world compared with less than half in 2002. Also, based on ITU estimates, 23 out of 100 inhabitants globally used the Internet at the end of 2008. But penetration levels in the developing countries remain low, and Africa with 5 per cent penetration is lagging behind. When it comes to broadband penetration, figures are even lower, noted the ITU, the lead UN agency for ICT issues, and the global focal point for governments and the private sector in developing networks and services. read more
Council President Juan Antonio Yáñez-Barnuevo of Spain read a statement at the formal session condemning “in the strongest terms the heinous terrorist act” which took place at a secondary school in the town of Beslan.The statement also referred to other deadly terrorist attacks against innocent civilians in Moscow and on two Russian airliners.Demanding the “immediate and unconditional” release of all hostages, the Council urged countries – in accordance with their obligations under the landmark counter-terrorism resolution adopted in the wake of the September 11th, 2001 attacks on the United States – to “to cooperate actively with the Russian authorities in their efforts to find and bring to justice the perpetrators, organizers and sponsors of these terrorist acts.”The Council President also reaffirmed that “terrorism in all its forms and manifestations constitutes one of the most serious threats to international peace and security and that any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, whenever and by whomsoever committed.” read more

(TSX:OCX) signed a deal Monday to buy trade show operator Nielsen Expositions for US$950 million from Nielsen Holdings NV, a company best known for its TV ratings business.Odlum Brown analyst Felix Narhi said the deal was in line with the private equity company’s strength in carving out non-core businesses.“If there’s one area where they have some specialty, it’s basically taking non-core assets from companies and carving them out,” Narhi said.“They’ve had some really good successes with that, and it obviously helps the parent company as well because they just don’t focus very much on this.”Nielsen Expositions has about 240 employees and is based in San Juan Capistrano, Calif. It produces more than 65 business-to-business trade shows and conference events each year.The shows involve diversified end markets, including general merchandise, sports, hospitality and retail design, jewelry and photography.In 2012, Nielsen Expositions generated revenues of approximately $183 million.The sale will allow Nielsen to focus on its core business, which is providing information and insights into what consumers watch and buy.The deal is expected to close in the second quarter, which is right in line with Nielsen’s planned acquisition of radio ratings company Arbitron Inc. for $1.26 billion.“We’re happy to have this close line up nicely with our anticipated close of Arbitron, our pending acquisition,” Nielsen’s chief financial officer Brian West told investors during a conference call.“We’ll be able to do the Arbitron deal with a lot less debt, so we’ll need to raise $950 million less for that transaction.”Narhi said the trade show deal is on the pricier end compared with previous deals that Onex has made.“But a lot of those businesses they bought in the past might have different economic characteristics,” said Narhi.“[Nielsen Expositions] does look like it’s a very profitable niche business.”Overall, Narhi called the acquisition a good move.In a note, BMO analyst Bert Powell called the deal “slightly positive,” while RBC Capital Markets labelled it neutral.Onex, with offices in Toronto, New York and London, has approximately $15 billion of assets under management, including $5 billion of proprietary capital, in private equity, credit securities and real estate. Onex invests its proprietary capital directly and as a substantial limited partner in its funds.In February, Onex Corp. and its affiliates announced plans to sell their 50 per cent interest in a California-based cabinetry maker for approximately US$323 million.The Onex Group invested $318 million to buy preferred equity of RSI Home Products in October 2008. The Toronto-based group said it will have received US$471 million, including prior distributions, when the sale closes.

Rogers reports Q4 loss due to $484-million writedown of its IPTV project by Aleksandra Sagan, The Canadian Press Posted Jan 26, 2017 5:38 am MDT Last Updated Jan 26, 2017 at 2:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Rogers Communications (TSX:RCI.B) says its decision to shelve development of an in-house IPTV system in favour of Comcast’s platform is less risky and likely to grow its video business, as cord-cutting continues to plague the industry.Rogers said Thursday it lost $9 million in its fourth quarter, primarily because of the decision, which resulted in a $484-million expense.“This is a proven product,” said Rogers chief financial officer Tony Staffieri during a conference call with analysts. “So the whole construct for it is much lower risk than the path we were otherwise on.”Staffieri added the company expects the service to help grow its video business.The major telecommunications companies have been struggling to retain cable TV subscribers as cord-cutters turn to Internet-based options, like Netflix.In the three months ended Dec. 31, Rogers lost 13,000 TV subscribers, adding to an annual loss of 76,000. That’s compared to the 128,000 TV subscribers it shed the previous year.The company’s financial loss for its fourth-quarter amounted to four cents per diluted share on $3.51 billion in revenue compared with a profit of $299 million or 58 cents per share on $3.45 billion in revenue in the fourth quarter of 2015.On an adjusted basis, Rogers said it earned a profit of $382 million or 74 cents per diluted share in its latest quarter compared with an adjusted profit of $331 million or 64 cents per diluted share in same quarter the previous year.Analysts had estimated 71 cents per share of earnings, excluding items such as asset impairments, according to Thomson Reuters. Revenue was slightly below the consensus estimate of $3.56 billion.The bright spot for Rogers was its wireless business, where revenue rose four per cent to $2.058 billion this quarter from $1.981 billion in the same quarter last year.The company added 93,000 net postpaid wireless subscribers in the quarter compared with 31,000 net additions a year earlier.These wireless additions outpaced analysts’ expectations, wrote Drew McReynolds, an analyst with RBC Dominion Securities Inc., in a note.Rogers shares closed up $3.46 or nearly 6.6 per cent at $56.04 on the Toronto Stock Exchange on Thursday.Staffieri said the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission’s pick-and-pay rules which came into full effect on Dec. 1 had a “very small” impact.Canadian TV providers must now offer a basic cable package for a maximum $25 monthly fee, as well as the choice to either add channels to their subscriptions a-la-carte or through pre-packaged bundles of no more than 10 channels.Staffieri did, however, blame a recent CRTC decision for dampening the company’s cable and Internet revenue, which rose two and nine per cent, respectively.In October, the CRTC set interim rates for what Rogers and other incumbents must charge smaller companies for access to their high-speed networks. For the most part, these rates are mostly lower than what the companies wanted to charge.Excluding the impact of this decision, cable and Internet revenue would have risen five and 12 per cent, respectively.The company also announced former Telus chief executive Joe Natale would join the company as CEO in July.Rogers first announced Natale, who is bound by a non-compete contract with Telus, would be hired for the top role after its former CEO, Guy Laurence, left the company last October.Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter. read more

But Sir Brian Leveson, sitting alongside two other senior judges, said: “When granting leave (to appeal), the single judge made the point that the appellant should not be overoptimistic as to the outcome.”That warning was prescient. The appeal against conviction is dismissed.”The breach of bail conviction was appealed on the basis that Georgia did not give explicit permission for Shepherd to be prosecuted under the Bail Act when he was extradited. A lengthy email exchange between Alison Riley, specialist extradition prosecutor for the CPS and a member of staff from the prosecutor’s office in Georgia, offered no clarity on the issue, the appeal judges concluded.They said in their ruling: “In every case the consent of the state from which extradition is sought should unequivocally be requested with an explanation of why this is necessary.“At no stage does Ms Riley formally request consent to pursue the appellant for his breach of bail and nothing in (the) response can be taken as consent on behalf of the Republic of Georgia.“In those circumstances, there was no basis in the extradition from Georgia to pursue the appellant for his breach of bail and the proceedings against him are a nullity.”The court acknowledged that it was “beyond argument” that Shepherd had skipped bail, both on the manslaughter charge and on a second charge of wounding with intent, for which he was recently imprisoned for a consecutive four years.It said the authorities could pursue him again on this charge but likely not until the end of his licence period, which, given the two sentences, will be in ten years time.A CPS spokesperson said it was “considering its options” in terms of how to proceed and looking into whether the relevant consent could be formally obtained. Speedboat killer Jack Shepherd’s conviction for absconding was quashed today as his victim’s family warned the ruling suggested criminals could flee justice “without consequence”.The 31-year-old lost a Court of Appeal challenge against his conviction for the manslaughter of 24-year-old Charlotte Brown, who was thrown from his defective speedboat into the River Thames during their first date.Shepherd was jailed for six years, although he failed to attend his two-week trial last July having fled to Georgia.When he eventually handed himself into the authorities in January after ten months on the run, he was extradited and admitted failing to surrender to bail, for which he received a further six months in jail.But despite his guilty plea, Shepherd appealed the conviction and won on a legal technicality.Miss Brown’s family, speaking outside the Court of Appeal, called on the CPS to pursue him for the offence, stating that his decision to flee the country had only heightened their agony. “Despite all sense of logic he seems to have been able to abscond without penalty. What deterrent is this to other criminals not to do the same?”Their father, Graham Brown, added: “It does seem bizarre to the layman that he’s been able to abscond to Georgia without consequence.“Everyone should face a consequence for not appearing at their trial.”The family welcomed the decision to throw out the appeal against Shepherd’s manslaughter conviction, saying justice had prevailed.His lawyers had argued he should have been cautioned and offered a solicitor when interviewed as a witness by police the day after the fatal accident, rendering the evidence inadmissible at trial.In the interview, Shepherd admitted he was the “most drunk” he had ever been at the wheel that night and also that he was speeding. Charlotte Brown Her sister, Katie Brown, said: “We find it difficult to accept that Shepherd’s appeal against absconding has been successful on a technicality.“During the 10 months he spent on the run in Georgia he caused our family further anguish and pain while he lived a normal life. read more
Don du sang : des besoins en hausse, des donneurs en baisseAvec un million de malades, les besoins en don sanguin se font de plus en plus importants et pressants, tandis que les donneurs se font de plus en plus rares. Une équation qui pourrait vite déboucher sur une situation critique.D’après l’AFP, la France compte aujourd’hui un million de malades. Un nombre conséquent qui requiert forcément de plus en plus de dons de sang. Aussi, il faudrait cette année augmenter de 10% ces dons par rapport à 2011 pour répondre correctement aux besoins dans les cliniques et hôpitaux… Un pourcentage important qui ne sera pas évident à atteindre, surtout que l’on observe une baisse des dons de sang. En effet, entre 2009 et 2010, le nombre de donneurs a légèrement chuté. Selon l’Etablissement français du sang (EFS), il s’agirait d’une baisse d’environ 2,7%. En France, parmi les personnes en âge et aptes à donner leur sang, seuls 1,7 million d’entre elles font la démarche. Un fait qui est donc trop rare. Pourtant, le sang des donneurs a de multiples usages : des transfusions en cas d’accident ou d’opération au traitement d’appoint des chimiothérapies, en passant par la fabrication de médicaments, le sang permet de traiter plus de 200 maladies. Aussi, pour assurer chaque année le besoin grandissant en sang, il faut “recruter” toujours de nouveaux donneurs, tout en fidélisant les anciens. Afin de faciliter le don de sang et de se rapprocher des personnes susceptibles d’offrir leur sang, l’EFS a investi dans la création de maisons du don. Situées en plein cœur des villes, ces maisons permettent un accès plus rapide ce qui incite les gens à faire la démarche du don de sang. Déjà implantées à Lille, à Saint-Denis, ou encore à Rouen, les maisons du don devraient se multiplier dans les années à venir. D’ici 2012, deux nouveaux établissements devraient voir le jour.En complément d’un accès plus évident pour les donneurs, l’EFS va améliorer l’accueil et la sécurité des donneurs. Une démarche qui pourrait permettre d’augmenter les dons en passant de 1,8 à 2 par an, par volontaire.Pour répondre à tous les besoins, il faudrait 10.000 dons de sang par jourTandis que se prépare la Journée mondiale du sang, qui aura lieu le 14 juin prochain, il est important de rappeler qu’il faut 10.000 dons de sang par jour pour pouvoir répondre aux besoins de tous les patients, selon l’EFS. À lire aussiPourquoi certains s’évanouissent-ils à la vue du sang ?Rappelons également qu’il est nécessaire de peser plus de 50 kg, de ne pas être diabétique ou sujet à l’épilepsie, et que toute personne ayant une maladie transmissible par le sang ou souffrant d’une infection, ne sont pas autorisées à donner leur sang. Le 14 juin prochain, lors de la Journée mondiale des donneurs de sang, ce sont plus de 300 lieux de collecte qui seront ouverts dans toute la France.

A proposed explosives storage plant in Woodland has raised the ire of nearby residents concerned about potential safety hazards who are doubtful that Cowlitz County officials asked the necessary questions to determine whether such a facility belongs in their backyard.Officials with Northwest Energetics, the Seal Rock, Ore.-based company pushing for the plant near Butte Hill Road, insisted the facility and the trucks transporting ammonium nitrate to and from the site would follow stringent state and federal safety guidelines.Meanwhile, Cowlitz officials rejected accusations that they have not been forthcoming with residents, noting a meeting to discuss road safety near the plant and environmental checklists would be held later this month. The date and location of the public meeting has not yet been set, Cowlitz County Commissioner Michael Karnofski said.Northwest Energetics, a joint venture of Orica, the world’s leading supplier of explosives, purchased land last year on Butte Hill, four miles east of Woodland, from Woodland-based logger Craig Chilton and two other landowners Longview Timber and a woman with the last name Andrews, whose first name was not immediately known. It intends to consolidating two existing plants, one in Oregon and the other in Washington. The land has since been changed from non-zoned forestland to commercially zoned, a fact Butte Hill’s 180 or so residents are not thrilled about.“We’re sort of frightened by this whole thing,” Butte Hill resident Eyck Bernardy, 70, said. “Here you have a giant corporation making itself at home in our neighborhood.” Test Caption read more

This law completely prohibits the sale and consumption of alcohol in the state.Mizoram was a dry state for 18 years till January 2015 when the Congress government lifted the ban. The bill was passed unanimously in the Assembly on March 20. “The Bill, that received Governor Jagdish Mukhi’s assent before the parliamentary polls, replaced the four-year-old Mizoram Liquor (Prohibition and Control) or MLPC Act, 2014,” Mizoram’s Excise and Narcotics Minister K Beichhua was quoted as saying by IANS.While the bill was passed on March 20, the Mizo National Front (MNF) government wanted to wait for the Lok Sabha elections and the results before implementing the law due to the Moral Code of Conduct. The election Commission lifted the MCC on Sunday afternoon and the Mizoram government passed the law on Tuesday, reports Times Now.Beichhua said that the MNF government, which was elected during the state Assembly elections held on November 28, 2018, wanted to fulfil its promise during the campaign that it will make Mizoram an alcohol free state if elected.He added that this prohibition will help develop a clean Mizo society and not be in the clutches of alcohol and drugs.The law is applicable to everyone in the state with the exception of defence personnel and those with medical needs and has a doctor’s prescription.However, not everyone is happy with the ban since alcohol vendors will now incur a loss. Beichhua said that the government will also face a loss of Rs 60 to 70 crore annually but he said it is fine. “But the loss of revenue is much less than the loss of human life and suffering. Larger societal benefit is more vital,” Beichhua said. Close read more

The EU launched a public consultation on the fake news phenomenon Monday, the first step in a process that could see the promotion of bogus news stories made illegal in Europe.The move comes amid increasing worry that Russia has devised misleading social media activity to promote destabilising political stances in the EU, such as Brexit, and influence national elections.Russia denies all involvement, but is also facing a wave of scrutiny in the United States over a suspected disinformation campaign on Facebook that allegedly helped put reality TV star Donald Trump in the White House.”We live in an era where the flow of information and misinformation has become almost overwhelming,” European Commission Vice President Frans Timmermans said in a statement calling for feedback from the public.”That is why we need to give our citizens the tools to identify fake news, improve trust online, and manage the information they receive,” he said.The goal of the consultation will be to establish if current laws and self-governing efforts by Facebook, Twitter and others are enough to stop “fake news”.The commission is also inviting experts and academics to join a high-level group to advise on next steps.The objective is “to better understand the rationale and possible directions for action at EU and/or national level,” the commission said.Respondents have until February 23 to share their perspective ahead of a new EU “fake news” strategy to be announced next spring.The consultation can be found here: https://ec.europa.eu/info/consultations/public-consultation-fake-news-and-online-disinformation_en#questionnaire read more

It’s for photo and video editing, business accounting, online schooling, light gaming, and website creating. I hope for it to last a few years.”The user goes on to ask for a laptop under $1,400 that comes with an 8th Gen Core i7 CPU, a 15.6-inch (or bigger) display with high sRGB color gamut, a fully backlit keyboard with a number pad and an SD card slot.It was tough to nail down all of the requirements on a sub-$1,400 budget, but we did find a few great college laptops that will net you enough of the required features that you’ll have no issue tearing through everything school throws your way.Dell XPS 15The Dell XPS 15 (4.2 pounds, 0.7~0.5 inches thin) is an obvious first choice because it’ll meet most of your current requirements, but it cuts it pretty close to your budget. For $1,409, the XPS 15 will net you a Core i7-8750H processor with 8GB of RAM, an Nvidia GeForce GTX 1050 Ti GPU and a 256GB SSD.We tested it with 16GB of RAM, and it took 10 minutes and 12 seconds to transcode a 4K video to 1080p on our HandBrake benchmark, while its GPU ran Rise of the Tomb Raider at 22 frames per second on Very High settings at 1080p. It landed under the 30-fps playability threshold, but you can easily dial down a few settings in Tomb Raider and other graphics-intensive games to get them above 30 fps.Its 15.6-inch, 1080p panel is great for video and photo editing: It covered a solid 115 percent of the sRGB color gamut and registered 371 nits of brightness in our testing. It also boasts a wild 11 hours and 53 minutes of battery life.MORE: Best Dell and Alienware LaptopsThe XPS 15 also has an SD card slot, which is another important feature. And while it does have a backlit keyboard, it is missing a number pad, so you’ll have to sacrifice that at the very least.Lenovo Legion Y7000If you’re looking to save some money and get even further away from your max budget, we recommend the Lenovo Legion Y7000 (5.3 pounds, 1.1~0.9 inches). For just $1,099, the Legion Y7000 offers you a Core i7-8750H processor with 16GB of RAM, a GTX 1060 GPU, a 256GB SSD and a 1TB HDD.It took just 9 minutes and 24 seconds to complete the HandBrake benchmark and nailed 37 fps on the Rise of the Tomb Raider benchmark, making it more than capable of handling CPU-intensive games on high settings. And if you’re interested in VR, it scored a solid 7 out of 11 on the SteamVR Performance Test, making it VR ready.With its 15.6-inch, 1080p panel, you’ll get all the color you need for video editing — the panel covered 153 percent of the sRGB color spectrum and emitted 277 nits of brightness. Be cautious, however: The battery lasts only 4 hours and 28 minutes on a charge.MORE: Best Lenovo LaptopsThis machine comes with a fully backlit keyboard with a number pad, but it doesn’t have room for an SD card slot, so you’ll have to spring for an external one, which is relatively cheap.HP Spectre x360 (15 inches, 2019)If you stretch your budget slightly to $1,549, you can get the latest HP Spectre x360 (4.6 pounds, 0.8 inches), which comes with a Core i7-8750H processor with 8GB of RAM, a GTX 1050 Ti GPU and a 256GB SSD.With 16GB of RAM, the Spectre x360 took 10 minutes and 45 seconds to finish the HandBrake benchmark, and it averaged a low 19 fps on the Rise of the Tomb Raider benchmark, losing out to the XPS 15 in both cases.However, it has a sharp 15.6-inch, 4K panel that covered 157 percent of the sRGB color gamut and emitted 247 nits of brightness. Unlike the other two machines, this baby is a 2-in-1 that can flip 360 degrees to whichever position you want, and it also includes a stylus that you can use to draw on its touch-screen panel.MORE: Best HP LaptopsFor a laptop with a 4K display, the Spectre x360 lasted a surprisingly long 8 hours and 9 minutes on a charge. And with this machine, you get a fully backlit keyboard with a number pad. There’s no SD card slot, but it does have a microSD card slot, if you happen to be using an adapter.We hope that these laptops help you decide which laptop to choose for college.

Burwell.The ACR will receive up to $2,926,400 to provide technical assistance support to help equip clinicians in the Radiology Support, Communication, and Alignment Network (R-SCAN) with tools, information, and network support needed to improve quality of care, increase patients’ access to information and spend healthcare dollars more wisely.“The R-SCAN program aligns with the ACR Imaging 3.0 initiative in which radiologists help referring providers select the best imaging exam, help patients avoid unwarranted testing, reduce errors and improve quality and safety,” said William T. Thorwarth, Jr., M.D., FACR, chief executive officer of the American College of Radiology. As a Support and Alignment Network, the ACR will support at least 24,000 clinicians to expand their quality improvement capacity, learn from one another, and achieve common goals of improved care, better health and reduced cost. R-SCAN will bring together radiologists, their referring physician colleagues, and patients in a collaboration to reduce unnecessary testing and procedures and to help participating clinicians meet the initiative’s phases of transformation and associated milestones, clinical and operational results.“R-SCAN, via the ACR Practice Quality Improvement Project, provides all the needed instructions, tools and interventions to connect radiologists and referring clinicians, focus the conversations on imaging appropriateness and safety, and document improvements over time. We could not be more pleased to have HHS support for this project,” said Max Wintermark, M.D., chair of the American College of Radiology Value-Based Radiology PQI Project.These awards are part of a comprehensive strategy advanced by the Affordable Care Act that enables new levels of coordination, continuity and integration of care, while transitioning volume-driven systems to value-based, patient-centered, healthcare services. “Supporting doctors and other health care professionals change the way they work is critical to improving quality and spending our healthcare dollars more wisely,” said Secretary Burwell. “These awards will give patients more of the information they need to make informed decisions about their care and give clinicians access to information and support to improve care coordination and quality outcomes.”For more information: innovation.cms.gov FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Artificial Intelligence | August 05, 2019 Montefiore Nyack Hospital Uses Aidoc AI to Spot Urgent Conditions Faster Montefiore Nyack Hospital, an acute care hospital in Rockland County, N.Y., announced it is utilizing artificial… read more News | PACS | August 09, 2019 Lake Medical Imaging Selects Infinitt for Multi-site RIS/PACS Infinitt North America will be implementing Infinitt RIS (radiology information system)/PACS (picture archiving and… read more The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s.

“The U.K. supports the ICJ route as a means to finding a long-term and sustainable resolution which is acceptable to both states,” Browne said recently. “The resolution of the territorial dispute continues to be long-term priority for the U.K. This agreement is an important step towards increasing stability, development and trade in the region.”Known as British Honduras until 1973, Belize gained full independence in 1981. Guatemala established diplomatic relations with its neighbor 10 years later, though the majority of Belizeans – many of whom are bilingual – oppose the idea of becoming part of Guatemala.In 2008, Belize’s prime minister, Dean Barrow, said resolving the border dispute was his country’s biggest priority. In December 2008, he signed an agreement submitting the issue to the world court, with the referendum to be held simultaneously in Belize and Guatemala on Oct. 6, 2013. But, of course, that never happened.Méndez, speaking to The Tico Times earlier this month, said the status quo is not sustainable for Belize.“We want to get this resolved as soon as possible,” he said. “Our national parks are under siege, some of the most pristine forests in Central America are being logged out, while exotic birds are being extracted – mostly by Guatemalan settlers who cross the border illegally.”On the Guatemalan side of that 150-mile-long border are several communities living in extreme poverty, Méndez said.“Given the lack of opportunities there, they are harvesting all the resources from our national parks and engaging in illegal logging and panning for gold,” he added.Méndez said these settlers are degrading Chiquibul National Park, which encompasses one-seventh of Belize’s territory.One of the principal economic engines of Belize is ecotourism, and ecotourism depends on the environment, Méndez said, adding that “the destruction of our national parks is eroding our national assets, and the longer this goes on, the worse it gets.”“Although we have some confidence-building measures in place to manage relations along the border, as part of that regime Guatemala has the obligation to dissuade its nationals from coming over. But they’re not, and we don’t have the manpower to patrol such an extensive border,” he said.John Saldivar, Belize’s defense minister, told The Tico Times that the Belize Defense Forces has about 1,200 men in uniform, and its annual budget is $5 million.“The border is not very accessible. It’s dense mountain terrain,” he said. “Our biggest constraint is inserting our soldiers into the forest. There’s no road access to the border, except at the border crossing. To get anywhere, you have to be inserted [by helicopter] or hike in. But we don’t have any helicopters.” Nevertheless, Saldivar doesn’t see any chance of Guatemala attacking Belize over the border.“They do have a far bigger army than we do, but regional and international arrangements make it virtually impossible for them to have a military [solution],” the defense minister said. “They’re under pressure from the international community to find a civil way to settle the problem.” Méndez said that Guatemala’s president, Otto Pérez Molina, does not want to run the risk of the world court ruling against his country – hence Guatemala’s decision to back out at the last minute.“He’s a decorated general, and his intimate proximity with the Guatemalan Army does in fact put an additional burden on him,” Méndez said. “Because the Guatemalan constitution requires that any definitive solution to their claim on Belize has to be approved by the people, they could not take the issue to the ICJ and then submit the ruling of the ICJ to the people to see if they’d approve it. Therefore, the two countries agreed to overcome this hurdle by holding this referendum simultaneously. [But] being the president who finally loses the claim would not be very attractive to him.”Meanwhile, Saldivar said the situation isn’t entirely a negative one.“Every day, hundreds of Guatemalan children cross the border to go to school in Belize. Our schools are superior, and they can learn in English, which is an advantage for them,” he said, adding that despite the ongoing dispute between the two countries, “We have an informal policy to let them come over with just an ID.” Facebook Comments Larry Luxner John Saldivar, defense minister of Belize, during a visit earlier this month to Washington. WASHINGTON, D.C. – Guatemala’s claim to more than half of neighboring Belize has gone on way too long, say Belizean officials, warning that the ongoing territorial dispute is an “existential threat” to the former British colony.Belize is slightly larger than El Salvador but has fewer than 350,000 inhabitants, making it the most sparsely populated country in Central America. It is also the isthmus’ only English-speaking republic.For nearly two centuries, Guatemala has claimed the 12,272 square kilometers of Belize south of the Río Sibún as its own. The controversy dates to 1821, when Guatemala gained independence from Spain, and England was occupying what later became Belize.Earlier this year, the Guatemalan government outraged people in Belize by introducing a new passport that depicted a map of Central America on its cover with Belize and Guatemala separated by a dotted line – not a solid line indicating an international border. Now Belize is furious again, because of Guatemala’s failure in October to abide by an agreement that the two countries would each hold a referendum among their respective citizens on whether to take the dispute to the International Court of Justice in The Hague.“We were supposed to hold a referendum by mutual agreement on Oct. 6, but earlier in the year, Guatemala withdrew from that decision and it didn’t happen,” said Néstor Méndez, Belize’s ambassador to the United States. “This has now put the process in the freezer.”In late November, Costa Ricans celebrated a world court ruling that required Nicaragua to withdraw entirely from Isla Calero, a wetlands area in northeastern Costa Rica. The court ordered Nicaragua to remove all civilians, police and security forces from the disputed region along the Río San Juan, which forms a natural border between the two countries. Whether Belize and Guatemala can likewise solve their differences at the world court in the Netherlands is doubtful at this point, though that’s exactly what Jeremy Browne, Britain’s Foreign Office minister for Latin America, is urging.

Where he can, he is putting BA customers onto other carriers and paying heavily for their services in so doing,” said Len McCluskey, Unite Assistant General Secretary.“But where BA is trying to fly its own routes it is clear they are failing. Dozens of flights flew yesterday without passengers and crew. Dozens more were simply cancelled, and [on Sunday] over 130 flights will not leave.”The union has hinted at more disruption after these strikes end on Tuesday night, but due to an earlier promise of not striking during Easter, a window for further talks are able to take place before the union’s self-imposed truce finishes on the 14th of April.While British Airways admits that one in four booked on travels during this recent strike period won’t get off the ground, it will still be able to transport 180,000 passengers during the 27th to 30th of March.British Airways is claiming that it’s been able to transport a higher percentage of travellers this second time round.

its Waterloo after two of its members were killed during a shoot-out with policemen in Ikeja area of Lagos recently Members of the gang numbering six reportedly stormed a popular eatery located on Allen avenue in Ikeja area of Lagos where they dispossessed customers of cash and other valuables But while at it policemen from the Special Anti Robbery Squad Ikeja who were alerted stormed the scene and engaged the robbers in a gun duel killing two of them and recovering four cut-to-size double barrel guns and 20 live ammunition at the end In this interview Sheyi Ganiu a cobbler at the densely populated Mushin area of Lagos disclosed that members of the dreaded gang resided in the same area with him adding that their hideout was located in Akala area of Mushin Hear him: “Akala is our base

“Wasiu is a very close friend of mine and we reside in the same street in Mushin He was the person that introduced me into the gang But before I joined they insisted I must buy a gun so as to arm myself and be able to defend myself during confrontation Even when I begged them that I do not have money they said I must get the sum of N25000 to buy one before joining them because that was the criterium for being a member “I had to borrow money which I gave to Femi leader of the gang who bought me a gun from the Republic of Benin Since I joined them we have robbed in four places One of the places was in Victoria Island where I got N50000; at Oshodi where I got N52000 and Shogunle where I got N32000 “My fourth operation was at the eatery at Allen Junction Femi Ibranhim keja and myself
