Morocco 2026 Campaigns in Central Asia

Rabat – Morocco is more than ever decided to hold the 2026 World Cup. After campaigning in Africa, Europe, and the Middle East, Morocco 2026’s organizing committee is setting its sight on Central Asia, with the aim of convincing that part of the world that the kingdom’s bid is the more deserving one in this 2026 scramble.As the defining hour for the vote approaches, the fierce competition to win the hearts and minds of the FIFA community is nowhere near its end. According to recent reports, an important Moroccan delegation has paid a working visit to Kazakhstan, Turkey, and Azerbaijan. Moroccan officials spoke to their central Asian counterparts in terms of lending their support and vote to the North African country’s bid.The delegation was headed by Morocco’s ambassador to Russia and convened other Moroccan diplomats who, armed with their knowledge of the diplomatic world, are now engaged in campaigns aimed at persuading their counterparts of the merits and potentials of Morocco’s bid. This Central Asian episode is said to be an important step in the country’s global plan to counter United 2026’s—USA/Canada/Mexico—recent orchestrated campaign to disparage Morocco’s organizational capacities as well as its financial, socio-cultural, and a score of other assets related to the hosting of the FIFA World-Cup.And while the North American trio is showcasing its huge stadiums and ‘formidable’ infrastructures, Morocco is reported to be campaigning in terms of “smart” and compelling  efforts that foreground the historical, touristic, and socio-cultural “marvels” that the country “can offer” to the many fans and teams who will be visiting during the 2026 edition. read more

Suncor hikes dividend as funds from operations hit 3 billion record

CALGARY —  Suncor Energy Inc. is making good on its promise to return cash to shareholders, announcing a 12.5 per cent increase to its dividend as it reports fourth-quarter income that beat analyst expectations.The company says it will raise its quarterly payouts to 36 cents per share, fulfilling CEO Steve Williams’ vow in November to increase dividends and share buybacks in 2018 as production rises from its new Fort Hills oilsands mine in northern Alberta and Hebron oil project off the coast of Newfoundland and Labrador.Canada’s largest energy company by market capitalization reported operating earnings of $1.3 billion or 79 cents per share in the last three months of 2017, compared with $636 million or 38 cents a year ago, thanks to stronger oil prices, lower upstream exploration costs, better refinery utilization and higher refinery profit margins.Net earnings of $1.382 billion or 84 cents per share were up from $531 million or 32 cents in the year-earlier period.Funds from operations reached a quarterly record of $3.0 billion, versus $2.4 billion in the fourth quarter of 2016.Suncor said its Fort Hills project has cost $17.16 billion to bring to mechanical completion, slightly higher than an estimate of between $16.5 billion and $17 billion made a year ago.“With Fort Hills and Hebron both successfully commissioned and now producing oil, the safe and steady ramp-up of production is proceeding as planned,” Williams said in a statement. read more

Europes €740 million starhunting telescope Gaia enters Earth orbit

first_imgGaia lifts-off from the ESA Spaceport in French Guiana last month [Image ESA–S. Corvaja]EUROPE’S MULTI-MILLION euro star-hunting telescope ‘Gaia’ has slotted into its operational orbit as it prepares to harvest data for the most detailed map yet of the Milky Way.The telescope was launched from ESA’s base in French Guiana three weeks ago and journeyed towards L2, a gravitationally stable point in space some 1.5 million kilometres from Earth.After a final manoeuvre yesterday, Gaia settled into a 180-day orbit around L2, the European Space Agency said.A small course correction will be made next week to complete the positioning manoeuvre.“Entering orbit around L2 is a rather complex endeavour, achieved by firing Gaia’s thrusters in such a way as to push the spacecraft in the desired direction whilst keeping the Sun away from the delicate science instruments,” said spacecraft operations manager David Milligan.The instruments on board the €740 million device, the most sophisticated space telescope ever built by Europe, will now be tested and calibrated for another four months, before entering the five-year operational phase.(Youtube: European Space Agency)Gaia is scheduled to collect data on a billion stars, charting their positions and motion, temperature, luminosity and composition.This will yield the most accurate 3D map of the Milky Way yet, and allow astronomers to determine the origin and evolution of our galaxy, according to the space agency.The craft will sweep its two telescopes across the entire sky and focus their light simultaneously onto a single digital camera — the largest ever flown in space with nearly a billion pixels.The telescope will observe each star an average of 70 times, said the ESA, “after which the data archive will exceed one million gigabytes, equivalent to about 200,000 DVDs worth of data.”- © AFP, 2014Read: Did you see the fireball that broke up over Ireland last Friday evening?Read: Public invited to ask burning questions on climate changelast_img read more

They can be in bed next to their partner gambling away the

first_img‘They can be in bed next to their partner, gambling away the rent’ It’s four years since new gambling legislation was put in train – and experts say it can’t come soon enough. Monday 16 Jan 2017, 6:15 AM We are at the coalface – we can see the effect it’s having; we can see the risk of suicide, we can see the impact on mental health.She said that the focus in the bill needs to be on research, data, treatment, and “creating a fund where people can access treatment to gambling and that is fair and accessible across the country”.Leahy wants the bill to focus on advertising and sponsorship “so we are protecting vulnerable and young people”.“We would regularly hear stories from people who come in for treatment that say they started gambling underage,” said Leahy.“Whenever we do a piece like this we get calls from parents worried about children aged 13 – 15 years. We have to ask the question – how are they getting access? And online is a huge problem in that respect.”It’s changing so fast, the access is there 24/7, the younger generation are the first generation growing up with social media as an integral part of life. They are becoming completely desensitised to it and on top of that then it is advertised everywhere – there’s no escape, 24/7 it’s involved in sport. That combination is like petrol.There is only one centre in Ireland that treats under-18s for addiction, but at the Rutland Centre Leahy said they “would regularly see young men in particular in their 20s and 30s who have got into significant debt, lost jobs, resorted to crime, these lads are from ‘good families’ there’s no stereotyping.”A total of 13% of people last year that came in for treatment to the centre had a gambling problem.“I can see already this year and we are only at the 11th of January, that we have a higher proportion of gamblers currently in treatment at one time that we had last year. Whether that pans out or is a bubble I’m not too sure – I think it’s only going one way to be honest with you.”She added that it is seen across the country, and is not an isolated issue.“We are not anti-gambling by any means, what we are about is protecting young people and protecting vulnerable people.”As for the delay with the bill, Leahy said: “I think it’s really disappointing to be honest with you because it’s a bill that’s needed and I think the longer that we stick our head in the sand the bigger the problem is going to be, and the harder it’s going to be to resolve it”.The costs, suicide and mental health, will just keep spiralling out of control. I would urge Minister Stanton and Minister Fitzgerald to prioritise and enact the bill fully.Leahy said she applauds anyone that comes forward with their story, but that she wouldn’t want people to think that gambling addiction only happens to high-profile sports people.The risk of suicide is “higher in the gambling population than the normal addicted population and that alone should be ringing alarm bells with government”, said Leahy.“I think the burden of responsibility rests with industry – they need to be proactive, they need to be compelled to act.”Social media sitesTD Anne Rabbitte says that gambling legislation is one of her key focuses in the new year – and she hopes to get representatives of the major social media giants like Facebook and Twitter around the table to discuss betting advertising on their sites.She said that gambling ads should not be accessible by the under-18s.Rabbitte believes that the gambling industry and online industry “have all the analytical supports that government could use to turn a really negative into a positive”.She said she believes Deputy Stanton wants to get the bill moving. “I think they are not going to bring the bill through the way it is drafted because it is too complex,” she said.Taoiseach Enda Kenny was asked by Rabbitte when the bill would be brought before the Dáil, and he replied that digitisation was an issue. Rabbitte said that digitisation isn’t the core aspect of the bill.“Digitisation could be sorted by bringing the main players into the room,” she said.“I think there’s a role for everybody here. Parents have a role to play here; social media giants have a role to play in it.”Read: Self exclusion and age checks – new legislation to curb gambling habits in Irish children> Jan 16th 2017, 6:15 AM Short URL Image: Shutterstock/wavebreakmedia 27,130 Views Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article By Aoife Barry https://jrnl.ie/3179780 IT’S BEEN ALMOST four years since the general scheme of the Gambling Control Bill was published by Alan Shatter – but legislation still hasn’t been enacted. Meanwhile, more and more stories of the impact of gambling addiction are being put into the public sphere.Now moves are being made towards pushing the bill out of legislative limbo, with the Minister of State David Stanton at the Department of Justice and Equality taking it in hand.Stanton has begun to review the regulation of the gambling sector in Ireland with a view to early legislative action based on the 2013 general scheme, his department has confirmed.As part of this review, the Department of Justice and Equality commissioned a research project on developments in the gambling area since the general scheme was published.The report is being examined at the moment and the Minister of State has also asked his Department to examine whether there are any “individual pressing areas of concern”, intended to be dealt with in the Bill, which could be dealt with sooner in 2017 by separate legislative measures.Experts in the addiction treatment area told TheJournal.ie that they feel it is unlikely the legislation will be enacted this year – and that meanwhile, people’s lives are being affected by gambling.A number of high-profile sports stars have come forward in recent years to speak about their experiences with gambling addiction. They include the Galway hurling star Davy Glennon, who went on RTÉ’s Claire Byrne Live to describe how he funded his addiction with loans and even selling his car.“My life was turned into a gambling rut, and I couldn’t get out… There were so many lows. I isolated myself. I became a compulsive liar,” he said. David Stanton Source: Rolling News Barry Grant is the CEO and founder of Problem Gambling Ireland, which he set up due to his experiences as an addiction counsellor in private practice.He has been working with the Union of Students of Ireland and the Rutland Centre (which provides therapy for people with addictions) to lobby the government to bring in wide-ranging legislation on the issue. They are also working on raising awareness of gambling.“Most international research would show that fewer than 5% of people with a gambling problem ever seek help,” he pointed out.‘Online gambling is 24/7′“In the beginning I was just seeing people who are going into traditional bookies shops but more and more now it’s nearly all online gambling,” said Grant.He described this as particularly worrying, “because at least a bookies shop or casino or another bricks-and-mortar gambling service has opening and closing times”. Whereas with online gambling it’s never-ending sport going on 24/7 around the world, and even if there isn’t sport going on you can gamble on roulette games, online poker and countless other gambling services.The ubiquity of smartphones means that people can be “basically carrying around a bookies’ office 24/7 in your pocket”.He said that in his experience he has seen people affected “across the age groups”.I’m even seeing people in their 40s and 50s going to race meetings and gambling on football on their phones at meetings because they’re not getting a buzz out of race meetings anymore.In addition, betting advertising is something that is “relentless” with sports such as soccer, he said.In bed gambling away the rentGambling addiction is “a silent addiction and invisible addiction – usually the point at which people seek help is way, way down the line when they’ve gotten into serious trouble,” said Grant.I am working with gambling people in bed with their partners, pretending to play [a game] on their phone while gambling away the week’s rent.He noted that people can be gambling in an unproblematic or ‘pro-social’ way, but for others it becomes a problem that they can easily hide – until the bailiffs are at the door.He described the proposed legislation as “a huge step in the right direction” and has made recommendations to the department on the issue.He said that within the general scheme of the bill there is the capacity to limit advertising to watershed hours, which he would be in favour of.“What I would love to see is an opt-out or opt-in option from social media sites,” said Grant. “If people could opt out or choose the types of ads you want to see in your timeline or your feed that would be progress from our perspective, however the revenue stream that comes from gambling advertising is substantial even in a small market like ours. I would imagine that the social media operators might be reluctant to do that.”Grant believes that the legislation might not arrive in 2017.“Even with the best intentions I don’t think that would happen, but as long as it keeps moving in the right direction,” said Grant.Lives turned upside-down Source: Shutterstock/GeorgejmclittleMaebh Leahy, CEO of the Rutland Centre, said she is concerned the legislation “will focus on money laundering and the taxation end and it won’t focus on the harm end and the social funding”.What we see here on a daily basis is people coming in for a treatment and their lives have been turned upside-down, in a state of chaos and their families are in the same position, and because of the nature of gambling by the time they come to us normally it’s a very serious problem.

3 Things You Need to Know About IABs Programmatic Revenue Report

first_imgProgrammatic advertising is still a nascent practice with competing terminology and hazy estimates about industry size and scope, but its proliferation is certain—it’s making up a bigger chunk of advertiser budgets each year. IAB is attempting to provide a framework for discussions around the growing business with its Programmatic Revenue Report though. Here’s what publishers need to know. Programmatic advertising totaled $10.1 billion last year, the report says. That’s more than half of all display ad spending ($19.6 billion) and about a fifth of the total Internet ad market ($49.5 billion). There’s also evidence that sell-side participants are looking to take advantage of the benefits private marketplaces offer, like greater control over pricing and inventory access. Meanwhile, $8 billion was spent on banner inventory. Formats like mobile are gaining ground, but obstacles like cross-device tracking and strict data sharing policies are making adoption difficult. Video, too, is seeing increased programmatic buying, though inventory is still scarce. Interviews with respondents suggest that it a shift is coming though. Who Keeps the Cash? … More than half (55 percent) of the revenue generated by programmatic advertising went to ad tech vendors last year. Open Auctions Dominate the Market IAB estimates that 70 percent of all programmatic advertising is conducted via open auction. Other methods like invitation-only auctions, unreserved fixed rate and automated guarantee made up less than a third of the market. Programmatic Tops $10 Billion Nearly $7 billion of the total programmatic revenue was generated by the Top 10 largest earners in the category, with just $2.5 billion going to businesses outside the Top 25. While programmatic spending is increasing, not all of that cash is flowing directly to publishers. In fact, most of it isn’t. The vast majority of that spending is driven by a few companies and by a single format though. “They see that private marketplaces are becoming much more prevalent,” the report says. “We believe this shift is due to an increase in demand on the buy side for increased transparency (i.e. reporting, targeting and features), brand safeguarding, along with a desire from ad buyers to ensure reserved and quality inventory.” Those “ad tech taxes” can vary widely though, depending on the number of vendors involved and the level of services being requested.last_img read more

Microsofts cryptic Oct 2 invite has Surface anniversary tiein

first_imgMicrosoft wants your attention on the first Wednesday in October.  Microsoft Microsoft on Tuesday sent out invites to an event set for Oct. 2 in New York City. That’s exactly one year after the company’s last Surface event, at which it updated its line of Surface PCs and launched its first high-end noise-canceling headphones.The Microsoft invite doesn’t offer many clues on what to expect from the event. Beyond the date and location, there’s a stylized version of the Windows logo. TechCrunch suggests the logo could be subtly alluding to convertible form factors. Microsoft is rumored to be working on a dual-screen Surface device. Last year at its October event, Microsoft unveiled a new Surface Pro 6 tablet, Surface Laptop 2 and Surface Studio 2 all-in-one desktop PC. The company also surprised with its entry into the world of high-end headphones with the Surface Headphones. It also unveiled a slew of new features for Windows and Office 365.We’ll have a wait a few more weeks to see what we get this year.

Pakistan gears up crackdown on militants

first_imgPakistan has detained more than 100 suspected militants, the country’s interior ministry said Thursday, amid an ongoing crackdown on extremist groups prompted by weeks of high tension with neighbouring India.Members of two Pakistani militant groups accused of attacks on Indian soil were targeted in the operation, which was announced Monday following an insurgent attack in the disputed Himalayan region of Kashmir that killed 40 Indian paramilitaries last month.”Law enforcement agencies have taken 121 people under preventive detention as of today,” the interior ministry said in a statement.A government official told AFP that security forces detained members of Jaish-e-Mohammad (JeM), which claimed responsibility for the February suicide attack, and UN-listed terrorist organisation Jamaat-ud-Dawa (JuD).India says JuD is a front for the militant Lashkar-e-Taiba (LeT) group, which it accuses of carrying out the 2008 Mumbai terror attacks which killed more than 160 people.JuD leader Hafiz Saeed is wanted by the US but has largely operated freely in Pakistan in the past, despite a $10 million US bounty on his head.A source close to the groups confirmed to AFP that authorities were detaining suspected militants on a daily basis.Nearly 200 religious schools, along with several hospitals and other charitable organisations run by the militant groups, have been seized and their operations turned over to provincial governments, the interior ministry said.The crackdown was part of an ongoing drive against proscribed organisations and not conducted under pressure from India, interior minister Shehryar Afridi claimed on Tuesday.Last month’s suicide bomb attack in Indian Kashmir spurred tit-for-tat air raids between India and Pakistan, igniting fears of an all-out conflict as world powers pleaded for restraint.Pakistan captured one Indian pilot, releasing him on Friday in a bid to pull both countries back from the brink, though tensions remain high.last_img read more

Now, this carbonated beverage is making a sweet comeback for Stranger Things Season 3, thanks to a collaboration between Netflix and Coca-Cola.On Tuesday, Coca-Cola announced that it’s reviving a limited number of  New Coke cans in celebration of Stranger Things’ third season, which is expected to feature the ’80s drink in a couple of episodes, Entertainment Weekly reported. Coca-Cola said vintage-like cans of the 1985 recipe will be available on Coca-Cola’s merchandise website, cokestore.com, starting May 23, which is about six weeks before Stranger Things Season 3 hits Netflix on July 4, The Wall Street Journal noted.AdChoices广告Set in the summer of 1985, the third season of Stranger Things follows Eleven, Mike Wheeler, and the rest of the squad as they prepare for the warm days ahead in Hawkins, Indiana. That same year, Coca-Cola debuted the New Coke beverage, which had a new recipe for the iconic soda. However, it was disliked so much by customers, that Coca-Cola discontinued it a few months later. Ross and Matt Duffers, the creators of Stranger Things, said they brought up the idea to include New Coke in the series, and Netflix gave them the green light to feature it.In a first-of-its-kind partnership with Netflix, we’re bringing back New Coke as an innovative way to reach “Stranger Things” fans. https://t.co/m7MEfX6E4i pic.twitter.com/GKvRLZnpDP— The Coca-Cola Co. (@CocaColaCo) May 21, 2019“New Coke was always going to play a role this season. It was one of the first ideas in our Season 3 brainstorm,” the Duffer Brothers wrote in an email interview with the New York Times. “It was the summer of ’85, and when you talk about pop culture moments, New Coke was a really big deal. It would have been more bizarre to not include it.”New Coke isn’t the only consumer item to make an appearance on Stranger Things: Kellogg’s Eggo waffles have been previously spotted on the sci-fi series as well, thanks to Eleven’s obsession with them.“In a world of shifting media consumption, we continue to challenge ourselves to find creative and meaningful ways to participate in non-advertising platforms like Netflix to engage with the millions of fans who subscribe to streaming content services,” Geoff Cottrill, senior vice president of strategic marketing, Coca-Cola North America, said in a press statement. “We’re excited to partner with Netflix and play a key role in recreating the summer of 1985 in a uniquely Coca-Cola way.” Nike x ‘Stranger Things’ Is Back With an Upside Down-Inspire…Hopper’s ‘Stranger Things’ Cabin Is Now an Escape Room Stay on targetcenter_img More on Geek.com:‘Stranger Things’ Season 3 Character Posters Hint at Scary Summer NightsBilly Turns Up the Heat at Hawkins Pool in ‘Stranger Things’ Season 3 ClipLego’s Massive ‘Stranger Things’ Set Will Turn Your World Upside Downlast_img read more

Fix jumping icons on the Windows 10 desktop

first_imgFix “jumping icons” on the Windows 10 desktop by Martin Brinkmann on October 13, 2017 in Windows – Last Update: October 13, 2017 – 11 commentsThe most recent versions of Windows 10 — including the upcoming Fall Creators Update version — have a bug that impacts the moving of icons on the desktop.When you try to move an icon to the very left side of the desktop, you may notice that it jumps right back to its original location when you try to do so.This does not happen all the time but it is annoying when it happens.  This means effectively that it is difficult to reorder icons on the Windows 10 desktop, and to place individual icons on the left side on the desktop.You have two main options to fix the issue.Fix “jumping icons” on the Windows 10 desktopThe first option that you have is to enable the “align icons to grid” option which takes care of that. Right-click on a free location on the desktop and select View > Align icons to grid to activate the feature. You may repeat the process to disable it again in the future.This takes care of the jumping icon issue, but it may display large gaps between individual files and shortcuts.While there is no option to change the icon spacing in the Windows 10 Settings, you may change the spacing using the Windows Registry:Tap on the Windows-key, type regedit.exe and hit the Enter-key to launch the Windows Registry Editor.Accept the UAC prompt that is displayed.Go to HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\WindowMetrics.IconSpacing defines the horizontal spacing. The default value is -1725, and you can set it to a value between -480 and-2730. Windows 8.1 had a default value of -1125 which meant that icons were closer horizontally.IconVerticalSpacing defines the vertical spacing. The default value is -1725 as well, and it has the same minimum and maximum values as IconSpacing.Note that you need to restart the PC, or kill and restart the Explorer process, to see the changes.The Deskmodder team found a second option to avoid the jumping icons issue when moving icons on the Windows 10 desktop.They found out that it depends largely where the mouse cursor is when you drag icons. If you place the mouse cursor on the leftmost side of the icon when you start dragging it, you should notice that the moving of the icon is successful more often.Now You: Did you notice these issues when dragging icons on Windows 10?SummaryArticle NameFix DescriptionFind out how to fix the annoying “jumping icons” issue on Windows 10 when you drag icons on the desktop to the left border of the screen.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

first_img Technology | Neuro Imaging | August 07, 2019 Synaptive Medical Launches Modus Plan With Automated Tractography Segmentation Synaptive Medical announced the U.S. launch and availability of Modus Plan featuring BrightMatter AutoSeg. This release… read more Advanced visualization software continues to make surgical planning more efficient and accurate as technology advances. Surgeons can map out procedures based on images from computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) and positron emission tomography (PET) exams, among other types of digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) modalities. The images allow physicians to see areas of interest from multiple angles, and isolate various structures, organs and vessels that are of interest in a matter of minutes. This advancement in technology has increased physician interaction and provided an opportunity for enhanced patient education that was not previously available. Increased AccuracyOne way that advanced visualization has moved healthcare forward is in the area of efficiency and accuracy. Physicians can now scan through multiple images of the area in question within seconds. Not only can they isolate certain structures within the scan — soft tissue or bone for example — the range of filters in typical software enables them to create an image in the clearest, most beneficial format possible. There are filters specifically for bones, vessels, soft tissue and much more. The filters and isolation capabilities offer greater accuracy and ease in spotting abnormalities. Tara Mastracci, M.D., FRCS, FACS, assistant professor of surgery, vascular surgery, Cleveland Clinic Foundation, has been a firsthand witness to the benefits of advanced visualization software in vascular surgery. Mastracci, who utilizes TeraRecon’s iNtuition software to aid in advanced endovascular repairs of complex aortic disease, explained, “I’m old enough to have been on the cusp of when we just started using TeraRecon, so I know how difficult it was to do this kind of measurement and everything with cut films before.” Before advanced visualization, surgeons relied on slice number and table position to get good measurements on a CT scan. “Much of it was calculations that made a lot of assumptions that may not have necessarily always been true for the patient’s anatomy,” explained Mastracci. She continued, “With isovoxel imaging and being able to manipulate the images the way we do in 3-D, and then also with the centerline of flow and MPR, we’re actually getting a lot more accurate data to make our measurements. That accuracy allows us to make really sophisticated devices with a high degree of confidence.” Increased Patient EducationThe ability to construct 3-D images has also aided greatly in patient education both pre- and post-operatively. “In the old days you would throw up a film on a light box and the patient wouldn’t know what you were pointing at, so they would kind of have to take it at face value,” Mastracci explained. These days, Mastracci sits with all of her new patients, shows them their CT scan and goes through the anatomy. With the 3-D images, patients can visualize the process. Physicians can explain to patients the intricacies of surgery and explain why they will be performing a certain procedure, any obstacles that they foresee and why certain recommendations have been made. Once the surgery is complete, physicians can return once again to show patients what has taken place. Advanced Visualization Goes MobileAdvanced visualization software has begun to adapt to changes in platforms due to physicians’ use of mobile devices in and out of the office. It has been noted that more than 70 percent of physicians have iPhones and about 60 percent utilize iPads.1 Instead of a reading room, physicians are now using mobile devices to view and even manipulate images. In return, advanced visualization software has adapted to become more mobile and Internet compatible. Gone are the days when surgeons must have a workstation to view images. With much of the software going online, physicians have almost unrestricted access to images — anytime, anywhere. According to Mastracci, this is crucial in the day-to-day processes of surgeons. “A vascular surgeon doesn’t need to be running back to their office every time they want to look at an aorta,” she said. “We’re all over the hospital and we’re all over the place. So, from just an access point of view, that jump in technology has made a huge difference.”Creating CommunityThis unrestricted access of images has created a greater sense of community amongst surgeons. Prior to having online access to images, surgeons referring patients to physicians outside of their practice would have to mail a disk with the images to the physician, which took at least one day. Then the receiving physician would have to load the images to their workstation, and if both physicians did not have compatible software, there was still a chance that images would not be able to be viewed. Today, Mastracci said that physicians are able to share, discuss and meet online, making the handover from surgeon to surgeon quicker and easier. “I find that it really kind of made our community that much closer from that point of view,” she explained. Here to StayIt is clear that the software has become a mainstay for many surgeons, and Mastracci noted that all of her colleagues at Cleveland Clinic Foundation not only use the software, but are dependent on it. “It’s something that we incorporate into our practice and instill in our residents for vascular surgery training,” she concluded. Reference:1.

Air India plans to service Australia

first_imgAir India is targeting the large Indian market living in Australia with the likely launch of its Delhi-Melbourne flight at the end of this year, when the airline acquires new Boeing 787 aircraft.This move made by the national carrier will make Air India the only airline to service the India-Australia market non-stop, the Economic Times reported.Victorian Premier Ted Baillieu recently met with Civil Aviation Minister Ajit Singh to discuss the proposed launch.”With sizable Indian population residing in Melbourne, a Delhi-Melbourne direct Air India flight would be in their larger interest and also in the business interest of the two countries,” Mr Baillieu said.According to recent data, the annual air traffic between India and Melbourne and Sydney is between 1,25,000 and 1,30,000, while the total number of people travelling between India and Australia is about 3,35,000 passengers each year.An Air India Official said the direct services to Australia would be a lucrative venture once obtaining concessions from the Government. He added that the airline will operate at more than 75 percent passenger load factor on an average throughout the year.The Airline is currently negotiating further with both the Victorian and New South Wales governments and the Airport Authority at Sydney and Melbourne to obtain concessions to ensure the venture is profitable.

Democrats on Wall Street Break Up Big Banks Reinstall GlassSteagall

first_img in Daily Dose, Government, Headlines, News November 16, 2015 483 Views Democratic presidential candidates deliberated recently in their second primary debate, ultimately determining that something must be done about Wall Street banks.The debate, held Saturday night, consisted of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, Sen. Bernie Sanders, and former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley. The debate was moderated by”Face the Nation’s” John Dickerson, Nancy Cordes of CBS, Kathie Obradovich of the Des Moines Register, and Kevin Cooney.While many expected the debate to focus on domestic policy, the recent terrorist attack in Paris spurred conversation to take a foreign policy turn at the start of the debate, with each candidate commenting on the recent event, according to a transcription of the Democratic debate provided by The Washington Post.Sen. Bernie SandersThe democrats then went on to discuss the “financial squeeze on the middle class,” where Sen. Sanders proposed that “there must be a tax on Wall Street speculation,” and since taxpayers have already bailed out Wall Street, it their turn to bail out the middle class.Dickerson alluded to a quote that was recently said by Sen. Sanders, “People should be suspect of candidates who receive large sums of money from Wall Street and then go out and say ‘Trust me. I’m going to really regulate wall street’.”Sen. Sanders added in the debate, “I don’t know and with all due respect to the secretary, Wall Street played by the rules? Who are we kidding? The business model of Wall Street is fraud. That’s what it is.”The major issue on Wall Street, according to Sen. Sanders, is that six financial institutions have assets of 56 percent, equivalent to 56 percent of the GDP In America, and they issue two-thirds of the credit cards and one-third of the mortgages.Hillary ClintonClinton noted that she introduced legislation to reign in compensation and looked at ways that the shareholders would have more control over what was going on in that arena. She also “specifically said to Wall Street, that what they were doing in the mortgage market was bringing our country down. I’ve laid out a very aggressive plan to reign in Wall Street—not just the big banks.”As the only democratic candidate without a super PAC, Sen. Sanders mentioned that he is not asking Wall Street or the billionaires for money. He then presented a plan from the past to reinvigorate the banking industry in America.”If Teddy Roosevelt, a good Republican, were alive today, you know what he’d say? “Break them up.” Reestablish Glass-Steagall. And Teddy Roosevelt is right. That is the issue. I will break up these banks. Support community banks and credit unions. That’s the future of banking in America,” Sen. Sanders explained.O’Malley had very little to add to the Sanders-Clinton fire, but agreed with Sen. Sanders approach to Wall Street.Martin O’Malley”Our economy was wrecked by the big banks of Wall Street,” O’Malley said. “And Secretary Clinton, when you put out your proposal on Wall Street, it was greeted by many as, quote, unquote, “weak tea.” It is weak tea. It is not what the people expect of our country.”He continued, “We expect that our president will protect the main street economy from excesses on Wall Street. And that’s why Bernie’s right. We need to reinstate a modern version of Glass-Steagall and we should have done it already,” O’Malley concluded.Clinton could not fully commit to reinstating Glass-Steagall, but did not completely rule it out, noting that “it is a part of what very well could help, but it is nowhere near enough. My proposal is tougher, more effective, and more comprehensive because I go after all of Wall Street not just the big banks.””So I’ve said, if the big banks don’t play by the rules, I will break them up,” Clinton stated. “And I will also go after executives who are responsible for the decisions that have such bad consequences for our country. There are a lot of things we’ve got to do in our country, reigning in Wall Street is certainly one of them.”Click here to view the Washington Post’s full transcription of the debate.
