Worlds Biggest USO Tour Brings USO Mission To Life

first_imgThe United Service Organization made history this week with the debut of its World’s Biggest USO Tour – a first-of-its-kind entertainment tour with a star-studded lineup featuring multi-platinum superstar duo Florida Georgia Line.Adam Devine and multi-platinum, superstar duo Florida Georgia LineLivestreamed from D.C.‘s newest concert venue, The Anthem, the event brought the nonprofit’s iconic tour experience to the worldwide stage, paying tribute to service members and military families watching from nearly 90 USO watch parties around the globe.“Tonight’s event is a new way for the USO to deliver on its mission to connect service members to family, home and country, as we bring together USO centers and performers with this single worldwide event,” said USO Senior Vice President of Brand Advancement Paul Allvin. “What made it all the more special was the talent who donated their time to perform. You cannot do better than Florida Georgia Line, Adam Devine, and Chef Robert Irvine. The whole evening combined to remind us all how connected we really are as Americans, military and civilian alike.”USO CEO and President J.D. Crouch II opened the evening by welcoming the 800 guests, including senior military leadership, service members and their families, media influencers, USO partners and supporters in attendance at the D.C. concert venue. Attendees were immersed in the iconic tradition of USO entertainment tours, programs and services, while enjoying smash hits from the award-winning duo like current chart-rising single “Simple,” red-hot collaboration with Bebe Rexha “Meant to Be,” which has reigned the Billboard Hot Country Songs chart for an unprecendented 41 weeks, and breakout debut “Cruise.” In tribute, FGL took a moment to honor the military community with “Dirt,” as they regularly do during their live show.“Every single night we give thanks for our service members, and we sing this one for you guys every single show – it’s powerful,” FGL’s Tyler Hubbard told the crowd during the song “Dirt”. “So tonight, as we think about how many people are tuned into this, we want to join forces one more time, not just for the people who serve and wear the uniform but all the others who sacrifice – the wives, the husbands, their families.”Before the event began, FGL’s Brian Kelley also reflected on what it feels like to perform his first USO entertainment tour.“There is nowhere else we’d rather be,” Kelley said. “We can feel all of the troops around the world tonight while we are playing. It’s going to be special.”USO tour veteran, actor-comedian Adam Devine, hosted the evening’s program and longtime USO supporter Chef Robert Irvine, a 14-time USO tour veteran, served as special guest. Both expressed how moved they are by the organization and its innovative tour.“Traveling with the USO has given me the chance to perform for military audiences all over the world for some of the most appreciative crowds I’ve even seen,” said Devine, who joined the USO’s 2017 Holiday Tour. “And tonight was no different for the World’s Biggest USO Tour.”Irvine shared in Devine’s excitement around the evening.“Today is really special because we’ve taken the USO into what I call the 22nd century. We’re going to touch people that we could never touch all at once,” he said. “The concert feed is going live to bases around the world and that’s why tonight is really important. It’s the beginning of something really big.”Throughout the evening, the crowd heard from service members and senior leaders directly impacted by the USO’s mission. This included live video connections to three remote USO locations – USO Camp Arifjan in Kuwait, USO Yokosuka in Japan, and USO Alaska Joint Base Elmendorf-Richardson – led by Vice Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Gen. Paul Selva; Vice Chief of Staff of the Army, Gen. James McConville and Chief of Staff of the Air Force Gen. David Goldfein, who thanked the USO for connecting service members back to the things that give meaning to their service.“I can tell you it personally gives me very deep satisfaction knowing every morning when I wake up that what I do really matters,” Selva told the crowd before turning it over to Goldfein, who shared his support for the military support organization.“At the center of the USO is a very big seven letter word that best defines why we are here – service. But, tonight is also about the first word in the USO – united,” he said. “And we are united tonight in celebrating the positive mission the USO has been accomplishing decade after decade for those who serve.”Before the concert, guests got to see that mission first hand via unique, interactive experiences, including touchscreen kiosks to build virtual care packages, virtual reality tours of USO center locations and a replica of a USO expeditionary tent.USO Chairman of the Board, retired Army Gen. George W. Casey, Jr., summarized the importance of the evening in his onstage remarks, stating that the 77-year-old organization is not resting on its laurels.“The USO is continuing to improve the ability to support you and your families from the day you walk in the door at the MEPS station until you transition back into civilian life,” he said. “The USO is a wonderful reminder of what’s great about America – people coming together from all walks of life to give back to others who do so much for this country.”The night was memorable for an estimated 10,000 service members and their families who enjoyed the tour remotely by tuning in online or hosting a watch party. A signature event at FGL HOUSE – a four-story dining and entertainment destination in Nashville, Tennessee – brought together service members and the public, representing the importance of the military-civilian connection.“There really isn’t a better night at work than when you get to connect a thankful American public to the service members and families that sacrifice so much,” said Kari Moore, USO center director at USO Nashville. “Military guests and their families were thrilled to be invited and delighted to learn that FGL House and the USO made this event possible for them.”The USO thanks all of its partners who helped make the evening possible: Altria, The Boeing Company, The Coca-Cola Company, FTD, Huntington Ingalls, Lockheed Martin, Lyft, Mission BBQ, Northrop Grumman, Oath Inc., Old Camp Whiskey, Sandboxx, United Airlines, USAA and Wawa Foundation.last_img read more

Managed dairy system enticed CocaCola to build Ontario milk plant Dairy Farmers

first_imgCoca-Cola Canada’s decision to invest $85 million in a new milk processing plant in Ontario shows why the Canadian government should continue to defend the country’s supply management system, said the general manager of the Dairy Farmers of Ontario.Prime Minister Justin Trudeau caused worries in Canada’s dairy sector when he said on NBC’s Meet the Press that Canada would consider allowing U.S. dairy greater access to the Canadian market as part of the renegotiation of the North American Free Trade Agreement.“As far as I know the government is going to continue to support the Canadian dairy system. This is a perfect example of why he ought to,” Dairy Farmers general manager Graham Lloyd said in an interview Tuesday.He said the system is attracting investment from around the world.“It’s a good example of why this system works, and when you compare it to the other systems and dairy industries they’re just not sustainable and not growing.”The U.S. beverage giant didn’t comment on Canada’s dairy system, but said tariffs were a deterrent to importing its Fairlife ultrafiltered milk from the United States.Coca-Cola also likes to make products in the country where they are sold, said Fran Mulhern, vice-president of Coca-Cola and general manager of the farm to table business.The company plans to build a plant adjacent to its 70-year-old Minute Maid frozen juice facility in Peterborough, Ont., to produce lactose-free milk that is rich in protein and lower in sugar than traditional milk.The operations, set to open in the first quarter of 2020, will create 35 new jobs and support 100 jobs at the existing juice plant, which supplies North America with frozen juice.Changing consumer habits towards products with less sugar makes it a perfect time to make Canada the first international market for Fairlife products such as ultrafiltered milk, said Mulhern.“We see lots of opportunities for this to really grow dairy, and bring consumers back into dairy,” she said in an interview.In the year after the product was launched in the U.S. in 2015, 40 per cent of the consumption came from buyers who were not drinking milk, according to a Nielsen survey, she said.Canadian milk consumption has been declining about one per cent annually for years, but value-added products are growing five per cent per year and account for 20 per cent of Canada’s dairy market. Almost 20 per cent of Canadians consume lactose-free dairy.The plant will be supplied with milk from local dairy farmers in Ontario.“Anything that will grow the dairy market and increase dairy production and increase dairy consumption is quite exciting, and that’s why we’re quite supportive of this opportunity,” Lloyd added in an interview from Ottawa.The milk uses a patented cold filtration process to remove lactose and sugar, leaving it with 50 per cent more protein and 50 per cent less sugar than traditional milk.Coca-Cola has been in a joint venture with Select Milk Producers, the sixth largest U.S. dairy co-operative, to make Fairlife products that are added to the multinational’s broad portfolio of beverages.Coca-Cola Canada employs 6,200 people in more than 50 facilities, including six production facilities across the country.Follow @RossMarowits on Twitter.last_img read more

Rabat – From January to July 2018, Morocco’s trade deficit increased by 8 percent to MAD 118.3 billion.According to the Directorate of Studies and Financial Forecasting (DEPF) within the Ministry of Finance, the trade deficit growth is due to rises in both exports and imports, up by 11.2 percent and 9.8 percent, respectively.Exported goods totaled MAD 160 billion, a good performance of al sectors. Morocco’s leading export sector, the automotive industry, achieved an export turnover of MAD 38.5 billion, up by 16.9 percent.

Senate committee to investigate FAA safety inspectors

WASHINGTON — A Senate committee says it’s investigating whistleblower complaints about the training and credentials of federal inspectors who evaluated a Boeing jet involved in two deadly crashes.Commerce Committee Chairman Roger Wicker asked the Federal Aviation Administration on Tuesday for documents and other information.Wicker says multiple whistleblowers say “numerous” FAA inspectors who evaluated the Boeing 737 Max jet lacked sufficient training and valid certifications, and some might have developed pilot-training requirements for the plane.In its response, the FAA noted that acting Administrator Daniel Elwell told senators last week the agency welcomes outside review of its systems, processes and recommendations.Crashes of Max jets in Indonesia and Ethiopia killed 346 people. Investigators are examining the role of an anti-stall system on the plane that pilots say they weren’t told about.The Associated Press read more

Monthlong blockade of aid routes lifted in South Sudan allowing UN to

“The lifting of the restrictions has allowed humanitarian partners to start resupplying critical medicines, fuel, food and water treatment chemicals in Malakal in Upper Nile state,” the UN Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA) said.Partners are working to ensure supplies continue to be delivered to Upper Nile to avert a further deterioration of the already dire situation, according to an updateissued Thursday.Restrictions on the movement of barges on the River Nile, as well as clearances to use the Malakal airstrip had affected the delivery of life-saving assistance to vulnerable people in Upper Nile state. No barges arrived in Malakal during July and no flights were able to land at the airstrip from the end of June until 7 August.Humanitarian partners continue to negotiate with all parties on the ground to access Wau Shilluk to be able to restock water, sanitation and hygiene supplies, including fuel for water system, which are exhausted there.More than 10,000 people, mainly from Wau Shilluk, have arrived to the Malakal civilian protection site since 1 August, bringing the total number of displaced people seeking refuge at the site to 46,500 and causing a severe congestion and stretching the capacity of aid agencies to provide humanitarian services. OCHA says that relief agencies are racing to cope with the influx as the rainy season creates increasingly desperate living conditions. Although partners undertook an extensive operation to expand the protection site in 2014 and 2015, it was designed to accommodate only 18,000 people. read more

Number of local authorities to be slashed from 114 to 31

first_imgTHE GOVERNMENT HAS announced a number of changes to Ireland’s political system which Minister Phil Hogan has described as the “most fundamental overhaul” of local government in more than 100 years.The reforms will see the number of councillors reduced by 42 per cent and the number of local authorities slashed from 114 to just 31.All 80 existing town councils will be placed by a municipal governance, merging town and county authorities, and the number of council seats will fall from 1,627 to below 950. Members elected at local level will also represent the district at county level.The structures and levels of all payments to councillors will also be reviewed as part of the Putting People First programme.According to Hogan, the plans will save the State €420 million over four years. He said the changes aim to rebuild the public’s trust in local government again as it currently does not “enjoy universal confidence”.An Taoiseach Enda Kenny said the coalition is bringing local government into the 21st century with “one of the most radical, ambitious and far-reaching governance reform plans” ever put forward in Ireland.The proposals will see town councils replaced by Municipal Districts, something Tánaiste Eamon Gilmore said would help local government be more democratic and more responsive.The Putting People First programme sets to reform structures that are largely unchanged since 1898. Key elements will include: Three new assemblies will replace the current ten regional authorities.Services administered by local authorities will be funded through the new local property tax.There will be a new Independent National Oversight and Audit Commission (NOAC) to scrutinise local government performance and efficiency.Audit committees will be put on a regulatory footing.The power of councillors in respect of planning and certain other matters will be curtailed.The position of local authority manager will be replaced by a Chief Executive post.The two representative bodies of local councillors will be merged after 2014.The overall maximum expenditure in respect of attendance by councillors at conferences will be significantly reduced.The role and functions of the elected council are to be widened.Greater emphasis will be given to the participation of women in politics.One-stop-shops for business support will be provided through new Local Enterprise Offices (LEOs)A new website fixyourstreet.ie will be rolled out so locals can report issues with roads, lighting and other problems.Hogan said the scheme looks to devolve functions to local level, citing economic plans, housing service plans and the location of educational sites.“The whole tenet of my policy is to make sure there is a rebalancing of power to the democratically elected local councillor and away from the management system,” he said.Read: Councils face cull as Hogan reveals plans for local government reform>Download: the full Putting People First documentlast_img read more

Photos Heres what life is like on an Indian reservation

first_img 10 things in tech you need to know today WeWork CEO Adam Neumann told employees he’s ‘humbled’ by the collapse of the firm’s IPO Oil declines while stocks are muted as ‘all eyes are on the Fed’ on rate-decision day China could be the biggest loser from the Saudi Arabia oil attack center_img THE WIND RIVER Indian Reservation is not an easy place to get to – but one reporter had to see it for himself.Thirty-five-hundred square miles of prairie and mountains in western Wyoming, the reservation is home to bitter ancestral enemies: the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho tribes.Even among reservations, it’s renowned for brutal crime, widespread drug use, and legal dumping of toxic waste.But no matter how much you hear about Wind River, there always seemed to be something unsaid. Business Insider reporter Robert Johnson spent over a week there and in the nearby towns, and described it as “perhaps the most dramatic and unbalanced place I’ve ever been”.In the following photographs he documents what he saw from his week-long stay, in an effort to portray the plight and the perils of these forgotten tribes.The Wind River reservation in central Wyoming is surrounded by a landscape most people have never seen. As you get closer to the reservation, it’s hard to miss the railroad that’s been steaming through here for over 100 years. Signs like this memorialise a vicious event carried out in 1864 when a group of Indian soldiers left their camp under a flag of truce to go and make peace with US troops. When the soldiers left a US Army colonel swept in and murdered the estimated 163 women and children left behind. Throughout the reservation there are many memorials to the people who died. The Wind River reservation itself  covers 3,500 square miles where the Eastern Shoshone and Northern Arapaho tribes were forced by the US to share the land in 1868. Before being forced to share the reservation, the two tribes had been enemies. Wind River is so large that it surrounds a handful of towns on all sides. Strangely, this makes it feel even more remote than it is. With so much space and hardly a neighbour for miles, you might think Wind River was a peaceful place where native culture quietly carries on into the modern day. But you’d be wrong. Wind River is in fact a particularly deadly place to call home. The locals refer to different streets by famously violent US locations like Compton in southern Los Angeles. The New York Times came out here last year after the brutal murder of a 13-year-old girl by her brother and a friend at this trailer. The pictures are blurry because when I raised the camera to take them, the school teacher who was showing me the reservation screamed that I was going to get us killed. She did not view this as an exaggeration. She seemed genuinely terrified.Wind River may also be one of the most actively polluted places in the United States. An investigation last year revealed that oil companies operating on the reservation are using a legal loophole to justify allowing oil wastewater to flow freely into open pits on Wind River.  The toxins end up in water used by Wind River ranchers, and winds up in the cattle. The beef from the cattle is part of the wide selection of fresh meat here at a store in the centre of the Reservation. Interestingly, the grocery store sells no alcohol. Neither do any of the reservation’s four casinos. The dry Reservation is an effort to keep alcoholism and the domestic issues that follow it at bay. The closest place to get a drink is here, at a bar just off the reservation. Behind the steel door are a couple of pool tables in a room wallpapered with centrefolds and pages from porn magazines. The ‘no alcohol’ tactic hasn’t worked particularly well. One nearby park just outside the reservation has become a popular drinking spot among residents of Wind River. The teacher I am with says her student sometimes have to come here looking for their parents. The school is near the park and I walk over to look around. Its central architectural feature is a representation of a gigantic tom-tom. Life here is heavy on tradition that fights with the present. Drug use is rampant – from schoolkids sniffing deodrant, to alcoholism, to crystal meth. My guide says everything is for sale on the Reservation, in some way or another. Because there is so little law enforcement, crime is high and law breakers can hide almost indefinitely from police. This traditional classroom once taught generations of Native Americans. The likelihood a student on the Reservation today will go on to complete college is slim. Anyone showing too much desire to leave is called an ‘apple’ by classmates: red on the outside but white within. The most prominent European presence on the reservation is still the Catholic Church.Like everything else, Catholicism on the Reservation is a blend of native belief and outside tradition. Not far from the church is the Reservation’s community centre and post office. The cultural centre forbids children from speaking English within its walls as it passes down the native dialect. Residents of the Reservation benefit from some programmes funded by the government. Food is provided by this distribution centre and all residents receive monthly cheques from oil revenue. There’s a fatalism here that’s hard to describe. A kind of unfocused anger. And, before I leave, I am told not to come back alone.

The Netherlands said stop to the wrong kind of populism Wilders set

first_imgNow of course it’s important to unite the country in the coming weeks and months and that we succeed in forming a stable government for the next four years.Relieved European leaders, fearing the rise of anti-EU sentiment in one of the bloc’s founding members, congratulated Rutte, now headed for a third term at the head of the one the eurozone’s largest economies. Geert Wilders Source: Peter DejongA spokesman for EU Commission chief Jean-Claude Juncker hailed it as a “vote against extremists” while one senior European source told AFP on condition of anonymity: “Common sense strikes back.”Foreign Minister Jean-Marc Ayrault of France, where the far-right Marine Le Pen is currently seen winning the first round of the presidential election in April, congratulated Rutte for “stopping the rise of the far-right”.‘Not rid of me yet’ Wilders had pledged to close the borders to Muslim immigrants, shut mosques, ban sales of the Koran and leave the EU if he won the polls.He thanked his supporters in a message on Twitter, with his party set to boost its number of MPs to 19. The PVV won 15 seats in the 2012 elections, which had slipped to 12 in the outgoing parliament.“We won seats. The first gains are made. And Rutte is not rid of me yet,” he said.Eyeing weeks, if not months, of protracted coalition talks ahead, Wilders offered this morning to work with the new government.“I would still like to co-govern as the PVV, if possible. But if that doesn’t work … we’ll support the cabinet, where needed, on the issues that are important to us.” Mart Rutte Source: SIPA USA/PA ImagesMost of the other leaders, including Rutte have vowed not to work with Wilders, denouncing his incendiary rhetoric and his go-it-alone attitude.Turnout reached 81%, just shy of the record of 88% set in 1977.Rutte appeared to have benefited from his firm stance in a spiralling diplomatic spat with Turkey after authorities barred Turkish ministers from rallying support in the Netherlands for a referendum.‘No Trumpian force’ Assuming the exit polls reflect the final result, Rutte will get the first chance to form the next coalition and could possibly turn to the Christian Democratic Appeal (CDA) and the Democracy party D66, which both matched Wilders with a predicted 19 seats.But with the three parties’ combined total of 70 seats, he would need another party to reach the 76-seat majority.The “PVV is not such a revolutionary, Trumpian force,” Leiden University expert Geerten Waling told AFP.“People stick to responsible politicians mostly,” he said, acknowledging though that the PVV’s showing was “not small”.The analyst also pointed to the “disastrous” showing of the traditional Labour party, Rutte’s sole partner in the outgoing coalition.Support for the party appears to have evaporated and the partial count showed it winning just nine seats – well down from the 38 it won in 2012.Labour leader Lodewijk Asscher told supporters late yesterday “the voters have spoken, difficult as it is, but that is democracy”.One of the biggest winners of the day was the young, charismatic Jesse Klaver, leader of the ecologist leftwing GroenLinks.In a remarkable turnaround, the party is likely to win 16 seats compared to just four in the outgoing parliament.© – AFP 2017Read: Measures to trap suspected paedophiles among far-reaching powers in new Dutch cybercrime bill >Read: This teddy is being reunited with its owner after being left behind at Cork Airport > By AFP Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article 109 Comments Thursday 16 Mar 2017, 6:58 AM http://jrnl.ie/3290624 DUTCH PRIME MINISTER Mark Rutte has easily defeated a strong challenge by far-right rival Geert Wilders in key elections seen as a bellwether of populist support in Europe, according to partial vote counts.With more than 54% of votes counted, Rutte’s Liberal VVD party was set to win 32 seats, making it the largest in the new 150-seat parliament, with Wilders and his Freedom Party (PVV) beaten into second place alongside two others on 19 seats, the Dutch news agency ANP said.Millions of Dutch flocked to the polls in a near-record turnout, with the stakes high in an election pitting the pro-European Rutte against his anti-immigration and anti-EU rival.Following last year’s shock Brexit referendum and Donald Trump’s victory in the US, the Dutch vote was being closely scrutinised as a gauge of the rise of populism on the continent ahead of crucial elections in France and Germany.“This was the evening when The Netherlands, after Brexit and the American elections, said ‘stop’ to the wrong kind of populism,” Rutte told cheering supporters.center_img Mar 16th 2017, 6:58 AM ‘The Netherlands said ‘stop’ to the wrong kind of populism’: Wilders set to be defeated in election PM Mark Rutte easily defeated a strong challenge from the far-right Geert Wilders. 17,942 Views Share Tweet Email1 Short URLlast_img read more

Hellenic Threads opens in Canberra

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram A unique collection of Hellenic costumes and jewellery, some dating back more than 200 years, has been revealed for the first time outside New South Wales, with the opening in the national capital of an exhibition curated by the Hellenic Lyceum of Sydney.And it’s a show that goes to the heart of the Greek Australian experience, because ‘Hellenic Threads’ reveals not only scores of beautifully embroidered garments, but the story of how Australia’s first generation Greek migrants brought their precious family heirlooms, dating back centuries, to their new homeland, and which are now being recognised widely for their historic cultural value.The show, brought to Canberra by the Hellenic Club, is the product of years of voluntary research by Sydney’s Hellenic Lyceum that was formed in 1951, 40 years after the pioneering female Hellenic cultural association was created in Athens.In his opening speech, Hellenic Club director and treasurer Peter Peppas said: “We’re passionate about this kind of initiative. We spend a lot of time focusing on the classical age, but sometimes perhaps we don’t spend so much time on our modern history, and that defines who we are today. This exhibition brings that idea to life.”Kathy Liogas-Sojanovic, president of the Lyceum in Sydney, thanked the club for its “foresight in bringing the exhibition to the national capital”. “It was a great success in Sydney and we want to bring this show to other states so they can experience it.“While lyceums in the United States have very active dance and cultural groups, there are no collections like this of costumes and jewellery.”A long-held ambition of the Hellenic Lyceum is to find a home for its continually growing collection. “We’d love a permanent exhibition space, but we just don’t have the funds,” said Ms Liogas-Sojanovic.“We raise funds by putting on functions and all the money raised goes towards buying costumes.”The ‘Hellenic Threads’ exhibition comprises about 50 costumes set against jewellery, furniture and other antique artefacts, all depicting a rich kaleidoscope of regional cultural expression across Greece. Many of the Lyceum’s costumes have come from the attics of Greek Australian families in Australia – handed down through the generations.Canberran Nick Bogiatzis, a private collector of Hellenic artefacts, who is of Kastellorizo heritage, described the exhibition as “extraordinary”.“The range and quality is remarkable we should be making more of this collection. Many of these original items were brought to Australia by the first Greek migrants, there’s not much left in Greece, so Australia is a major repository.”last_img read more

Samsung fourbit ses armes face à Apple

first_imgSamsung fourbit ses armes face à AppleLe constructeur coréen a présenté deux nouveautés lors du Mobile World Congress (MWC) de Barcelone, le smartphone Galaxy S2 et la tablette Galaxy Tab 10.1.Samsung ne compte pas laisser la part du lion à Apple. Alors que les iPhone 4 et iPad cartonnent à l’heure actuelle, la marque coréenne a préparé sa riposte à la veille de l’ouverture du Mobile World Congress de Barcelone. Et elle est de taille puisqu’il s’agit de deux concurrents directs des produits de la firme de Steve Jobs. Le smartphone Galaxy S2 chassera donc l’iPhone 4 tandis que la Galaxy Tab 10.1 tentera d’enrayer la domination de l’iPad. Le Galaxy S2, fonctionnant sous Android 2.3 et possédant notamment une puce dual-core 1 GHz, sera avec ses dimensions de 125,3 x 66,1 x 8,5 mm, pour un poids de 116 g, un des smartphones les plus fins du marché. Quant à la Galaxy Tab 10.1, elle disposera d’un écran de 10,1 pouces, contre 7 pouces pour la version actuelle, et fonctionnera sous Android 3.0. Equipée d’un processeur double-coeur 1GHz ainsi que d’une caméra 8 mégapixels, elle est techniquement supérieure à l’iPad à l’heure actuelle. Mais la réponse d’Apple, qui a prévu la sortie de la deuxième version de sa tablette tactile au cours de l’année, risque d’être terrible…   Le 14 février 2011 à 10:34 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Proposed fix would leave Washington with twotiered license

first_imgWhen federal identification standards take effect for air travel in January, Washington residents, like others across the country, will need an enhanced driver’s license or a passport to board a domestic flight. That could be a problem if Washington doesn’t soon comply with federal standards.Washington state, heavily reliant on a migrant labor force, is the only state in the country that doesn’t verify applicants’ legal residency status when issuing standard driver’s licenses and identification cards. As such, Washington is among five states – Montana, Minnesota, Missouri and Maine are the others – out of compliance with the federal Real ID act, which establishes national standards for state-issued driver’s licenses and personal identification cards.Under the act — approved by Congress in 2005 — states are required to verify that an applicant is in the U.S. legally before issuing a driver’s license or identification card. Unlike Maine and Montana, which have extensions for compliance that expire in January, Washington, Minnesota and Missouri have exhausted their extensions.But a bill making its way through the Legislature could change that, giving Washington an opportunity for a potential extension. The bill, SB 5008, would reduce fees for obtaining enhanced driver’s licenses and identification cards, and possibly grant residents two years to comply. It also would roll back the $108 fee the state charges for enhanced driver’s licenses and identification cards to $66 and require standard licenses and identification cards – which cost $54 – to be clearly marked as noncompliant with the Real ID act.Not having standard driver’s licenses and ID cards marked as noncompliant with the Real ID act is a federal requirement and the only hurdle the state faces in becoming compliant.last_img read more

first_imgAccording to the Liverpool manager, not even winning a title like the FA Cup could silence the critics of his managing time with the Reds.Liverpool has not won an English Premier League since 29 years ago.And for many, this means criticizing the team every chance they have.For the Reds’ manager Jurgen Klopp, not even adding silverware like the FA Cup will be enough to silence critics.Jadon Sancho, Borussia DortmundCrouch: Liverpool could beat Man United to Jadon Sancho Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Peter Crouch wouldn’t be surprised to see Jadon Sancho end up at Liverpool one day instead of his long-term pursuers Manchester United.“It is always when people talk to me about silverware it always looks like we have to get each little thing,” he said according to Goal.“If we won the FA Cup then people would say that we didn’t win the Premier League for so many years. We cannot change what other people think.”“We have to try our best in every game we play and so far, not only this season but especially this season, that’s what the boys did – and that’s what we will try again and again and again and we will see what happens,” he explained.“I would say we had the toughest draw together with Chelsea in the first round of the League Cup. I don’t know all the others, but [other than] Bournemouth versus Brighton there is not a lot of all-Premier League ties.”last_img read more

Neil influenced Anushkas NH10 act

first_imgActress Anushka Sharma feels fortunate that she could work with actor Neil Bhoopalam in her production debut NH 10 as she feels his talent has influenced her performance.In the film, the two will be seen as a couple that goes on a road trip which gets transformed into a complete nightmare, leaving the couple to fight for survival.“Neil is one of the best actors that our country has today. I feel really fortunate that I could work with him because when you work with good actors, it has an effect on your own performance,” Anushka said here Tuesday during the film’s promotion at a college. “I have had a great time. He is like a buddy and I feel like I have known him for years,” she added. Neil has been part of films like No One Killed Jessica, Shaitan and David.

The outer adventitial wall (red), lipid core (blue), calcification (green), and vessel lumen (purple) are visible.Credit: Radiological Society of North AmericaMarch 5, 2014 — Noninvasive imaging of carotid artery plaque with magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) can accurately predict future cardiovascular events like strokes and heart attacks in people without a history of cardiovascular disease, according to a study published online in the journal Radiology.Researchers have long known that some arterial plaque is more dangerous because of its vulnerability to rupture. MRI can discern features of vulnerable plaque, such as a lipid core with a thin fibrous cap. This ability makes MRI a potentially valuable tool for identifying patients at risk for subsequent cardiovascular events.To study the predictive value of MRI plaque imaging, researchers performed carotid artery ultrasound and MRI on 946 asymptomatic patients from the Multi-Ethnic Study of Atherosclerosis (MESA). The researchers used ultrasound to assess carotid wall thickness and MRI to define carotid plaque composition and the remodeling index, a measure of changes in vessel size. Imaging results were compared with cardiovascular events, including heart attacks, stroke and death, for an average of 5.5 years after examination. “We studied asymptomatic individuals with a low risk of cardiovascular events at baseline and used noninvasive imaging to predict the risk of an event downstream,” said David A. Bluemke, M.D, Ph.D., from the National Institutes of Health Clinical Center in Bethesda, Md.Cardiovascular events occurred in 59 of the patients. Abnormal thickening of the carotid artery wall and the presence of a lipid core and calcium in the internal carotid artery on MRI were significant predictors of subsequent events. A lipid core was present in almost half of the patients who had an event, compared with only 17.8 percent of those who did not have an event.“The primary factors that predicted future risk were measures of vessel wall thickness in combination with the presence or absence of a lipid core,” Bluemke said. “The presence of a lipid core was 50 percent more common in people who had subsequent events.”Use of MRI improved the reclassification of baseline cardiovascular risk in the study group. When both the carotid remodeling index and lipid core were used for risk stratification, approximately 16 percent more patients with events and 7 percent without events were correctly reclassified compared with the use of traditional risk factors.“The results bolster the use of MRI as a surrogate marker of efficacy in therapeutic studies and point to a role in determining which patients might need more aggressive treatments,” Bluemke said. “As risk factor prediction gets better, we’ll be able to screen more intelligently and use more intensive treatments in those individuals who face a higher risk of cardiovascular events.”Bluemke said sequences for plaque composition could be readily added to existing carotid MRI angiography protocols for clinical purposes.“Carotid MRI has significant advantages,” he said. “The results are more reproducible than those of ultrasound.”Availability and cost effectiveness could limit the use of MRI, Bluemke said. However, ultrasound and computed tomography (CT) are viable alternatives for screening, he said, especially with improvements in CT dose reduction.For more information: radiology.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Feature | March 05, 2014 Carotid Artery MRI Helps Predict Strokes, Heart Attacks News | Neuro Imaging | August 16, 2019 ADHD Medication May Affect Brain Development in Children A drug used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) appears to affect development of the brain’s… read more Image courtesy of Imago Systems News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more News | Pediatric Imaging | August 14, 2019 Ultrasound Guidance Improves First-attempt Success in IV Access in Children August 14, 2019 – Children’s veins read more 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.
