TweetPinShare0 Shares OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – The San Antonio Spurs, wily and seemingly ageless veterans who are a rare throwback to team basketball, showed their mettle even as they lost their star guard Tony Parker – who sat out the second half with a reaggravated ankle injury – saw their sizable lead whittled down to nothing, almost lost the game in regulation, but found a way to persevere as they defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder in overtime, 112-107, and have advanced to the NBA Finals.Game 1 of the Finals, against the two-time defending champion Miami Heat, is Thursday, Jun. 5 in San Antonio. With the best record in the NBA this year, the Spurs have home court advantage in the series.The Spurs, Heat, and Thunder comprise the upper echelon of the NBA, and so a Spurs-Thunder conference finals that has led to a Spurs-Heat Finals Series seems fitting.The Heat are led by Lebron James, arguably the best player in the game today, and superstar guard Dwayne Wade. The Spurs epitomize crusty veterans who refuse to slow down. Led by 38 year-old Tim Duncan, in his 17th season and still widely considered the best power forward out there, and a Tony Parker-Manu Ginobili backcourt that is second to none.Also significant this year is a return to the 2-2-1-1-1 Finals Series, replacing the 2-3-2 that had been in effect since 1985. The Spurs, then, with home court advantage, host Games 1, 2, and if necessary, 5, and 7. The Heat host Games 3, 4, and, if necessary, 6. The 2-3-2 was implemented to minimize travel – established in the 1980s when the Boston Celtics and Los Angeles Lakers dominated the NBA Finals virtually every year. But critics complained that the lower-seeded team had a better chance to lead the series after 5 games, even if the final games would be played on the top-seeded team’s home court.This year’s finals is a throwback to a different era. To put it in perspective, last time the 2-2-1-1-1 format was in place, Lebron James was six months old. read more
Australian Bernard Tomic’s appeal to overturn a fine for not playing to “required professional standards” at Wimbledon earlier this month has been denied in a stinging rebuke by the Grand Slam board.Tomic lost his first round match 6-2 6-1 6-4 to France’s Jo-Wilfried Tsonga at Wimbledon and was fined his entire winnings of 45,000 pounds ($56,241) after organisers ruled he had put in minimal effort in the 58-minute defeat.The 26-year-old Tomic appealed the decision, citing the fact he was unwell before the match, while Tsonga added that he felt his victory had been devalued.The board, however, refused to overturn their original decision and heavily criticised Tomic’s attitude to tennis.”A review of your historical record of misconduct at Grand Slams, never mind elsewhere, provides little justification for an adjustment,” board director Bill Babcock wrote in the decision letter that was published by the New York Times.”In your case, Bernard, I am sure you would agree there is no historical evidence to give comfort to the theory that you can reform your behaviour.”Babcock added that if Tomic goes without a sanction in his next eight Grand Slam events then he would be refunded 25 percent of the fine.”Admittedly, I am sceptical that you can achieve this reform of Grand Slam on-court behaviour,” Babcock added. “Many others, no doubt, would be even more than just sceptical.”Good luck and I hope to be pleasantly surprised in the future by your successful reform.”Tomic, however, said he would appeal the decision further.advertisement”I don’t care about this 25 percent; I care about the right thing for players in the future,” he told the newspaper.This year’s tournament was not the first time Tomic has run afoul of tennis officialdom.He was nicknamed ‘Tomic the Tank Engine’ after accusations he ‘tanked’ — or failed to try his best — in a loss to Andy Roddick at the 2012 U.S. Open.Tomic also said after his first round loss at Wimbledon in 2017 that he was ‘bored’ during the match.He has also been periodically suspended from Australia’s Davis Cup team over the last five years for what Tennis Australia have called “ongoing disrespect”.Also Read | Joining Parachute Regiment of Territorial Army for next 2 months: MS Dhoni tells BCCIAlso See: read more
Di Francesco happy with Roma victory: Schick needs supportby Carlos Volcano10 months agoSend to a friendShare the loveAS Roma coach Eusebio Di Francesco was pleased with the character shown for their 3-2 win over Genoa on Sunday night.There were reports he would lose his job if Roma were beaten.“I have to compliment the lads for managing to play in a really surreal atmosphere. “It was not easy, you can see we are still a team that is ‘ill’ in a way, so we’ve certainly had better performances, but we’ll take the points,” Di Francesco told Sky Sport Italia.“I chose above all players who were fresh, young and free of the pressure. My only other option in attack was Patrik Schick, I had no options off the bench in midfield, while in defence I picked Juan Jesus because he is tough and I needed that in this game.“Since Schick has been here, he has lacked a bit of determination. I want him to be a striker, to go for it and press people. We all expect more from him, but more importantly he is a young lad and there are many players here who are first and foremost men, so if they are having trouble, they need to be helped.” About the authorCarlos VolcanoShare the loveHave your say read more

NEW YORK, N.Y. – The microwave ate my homework? Reusable notebooks where writing disappears with heat are among the basic school supplies raising their game against gadgets like iPads.Also hot in the paper aisle this year: Decorative tape, creative journals and scented pencils in smells like bacon and pickle.“There’s an explosion of innovation and fun” in school supplies, said Scott Bayles, vice-president of stationery at Walmart. He noted that people are looking for ways to relieve stress through creative expression, and that’s trickling down to kids.Companies that make school supplies have figured out how to get parents to spend more by offering innovations on the basics, said Marshal Cohen, chief industry adviser at The NPD Group. At Staples, for example, a pack of 72 basic No. 2 pencils costs about $15.49, or 21 cents each, while a pack of five scented pencils runs $7.99, or $1.60 each.Overall, stores expect a healthy back-to-school shopping season, fueled by a strong economy and high consumer confidence. Deloitte forecasts that back-to-school spending will increase 2.2 per cent to $27.6 billion this year, with the average spending per household rising slightly to $510 from $501 last year. That includes $112 on school supplies, up from $104.Here are four trends:— NEW KINDS OF NOTEBOOKS AND PENS: The Rocketbook Wave notebook that runs about $25 works like a traditional pen and paper version. But when pages are full, you can scan them with the app and send the contents to the cloud. If you used the Pilot FriXion pen, you can erase the notes by heating it in the microwave, and then reuse it. Using only the Pilot FriXion pen works in a similar way. You can make corrections on a page by heating the ink in the microwave or by rubbing the eraser tip to cause friction. Put it in the freezer and the ink will reappear.Bullet journals that adults have adopted over the past few years are making their way to the back-to-school aisles. The notebooks become a mix between a diary, a wish list and a to-do list, and can help keep track of homework, school projects and school events. Events can be marked by an “O” bullet, while tasks can be a dot.— DECORATIVE TAPE: Adhesive tape including Japanese paper called washi has been growing in popularity, and the trend has moved into school supplies. Kids are using the tape to decorate their notebooks, pens and pencils and other items, says Kaleigh Sands, a Staples spokeswoman.“It’s customizable,” Sands said, noting that kids want to personalize their own items.— SCENTS AND Colours: Elmer’s has been expanding beyond its famous white school glue to purple, pink and blue glitter glue and even a slime starter kit. Retailers are also widening their arrays of scented pencils. Walmart has added such smells as bacon, grass, onion, mud and pickle. Target’s scented pencils feature such smells as cola and jelly doughnut.— LLAMAS VS. UNICORNS: Rainbow unicorns are seeing a bit of competition. Llamas are in demand for decoration on backpacks and other school supplies. Dayna Isom Johnson, a trend expert at Etsy, said the search results for unicorns have more than doubled in the first six months of this year compared to the same period last year. They’re still way ahead, but the interest is llamas is growing — search results for them more than tripled in that same time frame.“It might be time for something new to come along,” Johnson added.___Follow Anne D’Innocenzio: http://twitter.com/ADInnocenzio read more
TORONTO — The Ontario cannabis retail regulator says private pot retailers will not be able to offer a click-and-collect service that would allow consumers to buy online and pick it up at the physical store.The Alcohol and Gaming Commission of Ontario says cannabis customers will have to order and purchase pot products in person at licensed recreational pot stores. Canada’s cannabis shortage could be over quicker than we thought, researcher says Ontario Cannabis Store seeking courier for same-day pot delivery services Canadians spent $54 million on weed in the first month after legalization The AGCO reiterated in a posting outlining frequently asked questions Thursday that the Ontario Cannabis Store continues to be the only legal e-commerce portal for buying adult-use pot.So-called click-and-collect services have been increasingly offered by retailers over the years, and is an option when buying alcohol online from the province’s distributor, the LCBO.Currently, recreational pot can only be bought online but earlier this month 25 entities were selected through an AGCO lottery to apply for the first 25 retail licences to open stores in April.Meanwhile, earlier this month 77 Ontario municipalities or fewer than 20 per cent have said they are unwilling to host cannabis shops within their municipalities at this stage. read more
“Despite last year’s mining industry mergers and the slowing down of acquisitions, this year is still a great opportunity for China mining to further expand its overseas acquisitions,” the organisers say. Hosted by the Ministry of Land Resources, Tianjin Municipal Government and China Mining Association, the 15th CHINA MINING Conference and Exhibition 2013 will hold a Junior Mining & Exploration Investment Forum, organising members of overseas junior mining & exploration projects to meet with Chinese investors. The organisers explain the rationale. “In the current international market, junior exploration companies with their high flexibility, rapid implementation of prospecting and financing capacity in risk capital markets, play an increasingly important role in exploration. In recent years, 80% of the important discoveries have been made by junior mineral exploration company. Exploration prospecting requires a great deal of capital investment, paradoxically, in the capital markets, these exploration companies often do not have steady operating results and a stable cashflow, it may even be the case that the only major property they own are their exploration rights. The problems of financing are for junior exploration companies the toughest issue in the international mining market development that they face.“Exploration investment is unable to finance itself though traditional financing methods. Due to the high-risk of outbound mining investment, it is always difficult for overseas exploration activities to obtain commercial financing. In the context of the economic downturn, financial institutions want to get high-quality assets, so unless the company’s project is very competitive, financing proves very difficult to obtain. Currently the global mining capital markets have suffered severe losses, whether in Australia, Canada or South Africa the financing of mining enterprises is in deep difficulty. According to Wang Jiahua, Vice President of China Mining Association revealed in the National Prospecting event, the market value of overseas exploration companies and mining companies has been severely diminished, most companies has fallen by about 70%, some even fallen by 90 %.“However, Chinese investors have showed a growing interest in overseas mining investments. At present, international metal prices are low; and in recent years, exploration findings mostly came from junior exploration companies, in the later stages of exploration, the needs of financing naturally become intense. Meanwhile, global exploration investment hit a record high, the number of newly discovered mines will increase, and financing needs will be more intense. It has now been ten years since the implementation of China’s ‘going out’ strategy, during this time China has accumulated rich experience in overseas mining investment, now is just a good time to ‘Go out’”.This year’s CHINA MINING will open up a special area for overseas junior mining exploration companies. During the Forum, the participation of different types of financial institutions will also provide many new financing opportunities. Due to the downturn of the global economy and the capital markets, it has brought more opportunities for Chinese enterprises to invest overseas. National shortage of funds in the international capital markets and investment index decrease, every country is looking for new investment.Institutions from different countries’ mining sectors, famous international mining experts from the capital markets and investment & financing institutions will discuss the issues of International Junior Mining & Exploration and Capital, Small and Medium Mining Enterprises Investment, dedicated to help international and domestic mining companies understand the policy, as well as the matching project and provide a strategy for dealing with mining competition, in addition, to promote the formation of an effective mechanism for docking between junior exploration enterprises and financing capital. At the forum, participants may have face-to-face, one-to-one opportunities to negotiate with the project parties and their competent authorities. Meanwhile participants have access to investment-related services and support to policy information.On a global platform which offers Chinese investors and international junior exploration companies the chance for business ventures, this forum’s investment opportunities will become a stage for the mutual benefit of junior exploration services and investors. In the current global trend of economic and mining development, potential domestic and foreign mining companies involved in large-scale mining have responded positively towards this session of the China International Mining Conference. Despite the global economic downturn, although the mining sector M & A market is cooling off it’s not in total decline, China capital and the M & A market will become the backbone of support. read more

IT IS THE day before West Bromwich Albion travel to face Derby County – a game they will draw 1-1 – and 20-year-old centre-back Dara O’Shea is moving.Not back to Exeter City, where he spent last season on loan in League Two, but just a few yards down the hall at the club’s training ground from the U23 dressing room to join his new peers in the first team.It’s taken four games as an unused substitute in each of their Championship outings until this point for the Dubliner to earn the promotion. A fifth follows at Pride Park the next day.There is no big fanfare and no grand ceremony at O’Shea’s ascension. “It’s just hard work. I’ve had to work to get here. Nothing is going to come easy. That was drilled into me from a young age. Every chance I get I want to try and impress, I’m hungry to play minutes,” he says, having been beckoned by fellow Dubliner, kitman Aidan ‘Jacko’ Smith, just before he must attend a team meeting prior to training.

When reps from Nike and Adidas visit regularly to hand out the goods it has taken the initiative of staff to make sure the O’Shea gets looked after.Such perks don’t appear to interest him. There are always a couple of players who are above the others in terms of fitness, that’s Dara. Straight away it can start. Dara is focused, he is ready, he is fit but also, [that is only] one part; the other part is the quality and he is showing the quality. That is why he is with us.“We can count on him,” Bilic continues, citing O’Shea’s reliability as a reason why he did not try and recruit another defender.We didn’t want to force to buy a new centre-back because of him, because we believe in him so much.“Unfortunately, in today’s world it is not a virtue, it’s a flaw if you are focused, if you are fit, if you work hard. Not in football, in every way of life. It’s kind of cool to be lazy and all that but Dara is, like a few of them, they are all good boys but for young kids. They are old-fashioned in a good way and that is the key for a young player.” Slaven Bilic.

Dara has everything. He’s like, mentally, he’s thinking about every minute of the training. Whatever you tell him, he is there.“A lot of things you don’t have to tell him. When I came here, Dara wasn’t mentioned to us as one of the cornerstones of the new season. He made it by himself in a very short period that we are counting on him. The best thing for Dara would be to go somewhere and play regularly but we need him that much and so he is very important for us.”A long season beckons and it’s clear O’Shea has the stomach, as well as the drive, for the fight that is ahead. 42,387 Views No boot deal, no ego, no time off: How Dara O’Shea’s old-school values won over Slaven Bilic ‘Dara has everything.

The youngster, who only turned 20 in March, is first through the door almost every morning and one of the last to leave.James McClean was a confidant while he was a team-mate here. “When he was here he helped me out.

Investigators raided the headquarters of LG Electronics in Seoul on Friday on suspicion that the company could have damaged washing machines of rival company Samsung Electronics at their German retail stores.The raid was a part of a probe requested by Samsung on LG employees.Samsung claims that it had spotted some of them destroying premium washing machines put on display at two of their stores ahead of the IFA Electronics show in Berlin. Prosecutors not only searched LG’s office combing through documents and hard disks related to the IFA Electronics show but also raided their appliance factory in the city of Changwon, according to Reuters.Samsung has also filed a lawsuit against LG employees following the incident.News of the washing machine vandalism broke in September. At that time, LG acknowledged that a company employee was questioned by the police after the incident but vehemently denied that the employee’s involvement. “If we (LG) were to surreptitiously damage a rival company’s products to disparage them in some way, there’s no reason for us to have sent researchers!! If there had been any such foul intentions, we would have sought ways and people that would go unnoticed,” LG said in a statement to the press, according to the Wall Street Journal.”For any company, it’s very common for researchers to visit and check out rival companies’ products on display as well as their own, while on a business trip. That was the case for this trip as well,” LG’s statement said adding “a product from a certain [unnamed] company was unexpectedly damaged.”The LG-Samsung rivalry dates back to decades. The cut-throat competition between two of the largest South-Korean electronic appliance manufacturers has only gotten fiercer in the past few years.The two companies have dueled over who released the curve-screen OLED TVs and smartphones first. The companies also released their smartwatches just hours after one another. read more

Making its debut at the European Society of Cardiology (ESC) 2013 Congress in Amsterdam, Epiq features a new imaging technology called nSIGHT that, when combined with Philips’ new Anatomical Intelligence technology, delivers faster speed and improved image clarity. It has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).Anatomical Intelligence is a rich database of anatomic structural models and adaptive system technology that allows the ultrasound’s computer to automatically identify the anatomy being imaged without human interface. The Epiq system is the first to have this technology built into an ultrasound system. Philips said the system is capable of efficiently producing more definitive clinical results. Anatomical Intelligence provides advanced organ modeling, image slicing and proven quantification, making exams easier to perform, more reproducible and delivering new levels of clinical information. Epiq offers specific innovations for cardiology, radiology, OB/GYN and general imaging. These technologies include: xMatrix 3-D Tranesophageal echo (TEE) and the Anatomically Intelligent Mitral Valve Navigator, which provide a key live 3-D planning solution that allows physicians to make more informed decisions before and during heart valve procedures;nSIGHT Imaging technology, a new imaging architecture that provides highly detailed ultrasound images and very good temporal resolution; andEnhanced penetration at higher frequencies, which improves imaging, even on patients with high body mass index, where ultrasound has previously been inconclusive.”Philips is at the forefront of imaging technology innovation, and with Epiq, we are pioneering a way to address significant imaging issues faced by medical professionals in the clinical setting,” said Gene Saragnese, CEO Healthcare Imaging Systems, Philips Healthcare. “The combination of Anatomical Intelligence and the use of nSIGHT Imaging technology is a major milestone in the history of ultrasound technology.””The image quality of Epiq is truly impressive,” said Roberto Lang, M.D., director of cardiac imaging and professor of medicine, University of Chicago. “I also appreciate the numerous design elements that make Epiq easier to operate including the standby battery, easy-to-connect transducers and portability; it is clear that Epiq is a system built for today’s healthcare environment.”The Epiq ultrasound system also includes other new features. It uses a new ergonomic design, and its weight, 230 pounds, makes it lightweight and more maneuverable than most premium, cart-based ultrasound systems. A noise test determined that Epiq runs at 37-41 dB, which is equivalent to the sound in a library. A new tablet-like interface results in dramatic reduction in reach and button pushes, with 40-80 percent less reach and 15 percent fewer steps. Philips said the system offers improved image quality with up to a 76 percent increase in penetration and up to 213 percent increase in temporal resolution. The vendor also said its SmartExam technology increases automation and reproducibility of results, which decreases exam time by 30-50 percent, keystrokes by as many as 300 per exam, and results in a higher level of consistency among users. An example of this is auto Doppler, which takes time-consuming color box positioning and sample volume placement from 10 steps to three steps, and reduces the number of repetitive button pushes by an average of 67.9 percent.For more information: www.philips.com 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 read more
