Rajasthan to scrap education criterion

first_imgThe Rajasthan Assembly on Monday passed two Bills which seek to end the minimum education criterion for panchayat and civic poll candidates. The House passed by voice vote the Rajasthan Panchayati Raj (Amendment) Bill, 2019 and the Rajasthan Municipality (Amendment) Bill, 2019. The previous Vasundhara Raje-led government had introduced education criterion in 2015 which required a candidate to pass Class X for contesting zila parishad, panchayat samiti and municipal elections. For contesting elections for sarpanch of a panchayat in scheduled and non-scheduled areas, it was mandatory to pass Class V and VIII, respectively. Replying to the debate on the Rajasthan Panchayati Raj Amendment Bill, 2019, Panchayati Raj Minister Sachin Pilot said that the present government is committed for development of every section of the society.‘Against Constitution’ “Sarpanches awarded by President, Vice President were declared ineligible due to the provisions in the previous Act. The Act was against the basics of the Constitution. Society cannot be divided on the basis of education,” Mr. Pilot said. He said that education criterion should first be introduced for contesting Assembly and parliamentary elections. Local Self Government Minister Shanti Kumar Dhariwal presented the Rajasthan Municipality (Amendment) Bill, 2019. In reply to the debate on the Bill, Mr. Dhariwal said the Congress in its election manifesto had promised to scrap education criterion for contesting municipality elections.last_img read more

Mega-Doughnuts: CERN to Study Plan for 100-Kilometer Atom-Smashers

first_imgIf you thought atom-smashers couldn’t get any bigger, think again. European particle physicists will draw up plans for a pair of circular particle colliders, to be built one after the other, that would measure 80 to 100 kilometers in circumference and smash particles at unprecedented energies, officials at the European particle physics laboratory CERN announced today. The goal is to come up with the first “conceptual designs” in 5 years, in time to inform the next revision of the European particle physics strategy, which was formulated in 2006 and revised last May.The plan would offer an alternative to the current widely held vision for the global future of particle physics, in which the next great collider would be an arrow-straight linear collider, not a circular one. “We have to make a choice at some point,” says Patrick Janot, a physicist at CERN, located near Geneva, Switzerland. “Either we have to go linear or we have to go circular.”CERN already has the highest energy atom-smasher: the 27-kilometer-long Large Hadron Collider (LHC), which fires protons into protons. In 2012, it blasted into existence the long-sought Higgs boson, the key to physicists’ explanation of how other fundamental particles get their mass. Physicists hope that the LHC, which is now undergoing repairs, will discover other new things when it powers up again in 2015.Sign up for our daily newsletterGet more great content like this delivered right to you!Country *AfghanistanAland IslandsAlbaniaAlgeriaAndorraAngolaAnguillaAntarcticaAntigua and BarbudaArgentinaArmeniaArubaAustraliaAustriaAzerbaijanBahamasBahrainBangladeshBarbadosBelarusBelgiumBelizeBeninBermudaBhutanBolivia, Plurinational State ofBonaire, Sint Eustatius and SabaBosnia and HerzegovinaBotswanaBouvet IslandBrazilBritish Indian Ocean TerritoryBrunei DarussalamBulgariaBurkina FasoBurundiCambodiaCameroonCanadaCape VerdeCayman IslandsCentral African RepublicChadChileChinaChristmas IslandCocos (Keeling) IslandsColombiaComorosCongoCongo, The Democratic Republic of theCook IslandsCosta RicaCote D’IvoireCroatiaCubaCuraçaoCyprusCzech RepublicDenmarkDjiboutiDominicaDominican RepublicEcuadorEgyptEl SalvadorEquatorial GuineaEritreaEstoniaEthiopiaFalkland Islands (Malvinas)Faroe IslandsFijiFinlandFranceFrench GuianaFrench PolynesiaFrench Southern TerritoriesGabonGambiaGeorgiaGermanyGhanaGibraltarGreeceGreenlandGrenadaGuadeloupeGuatemalaGuernseyGuineaGuinea-BissauGuyanaHaitiHeard Island and Mcdonald IslandsHoly See (Vatican City State)HondurasHong KongHungaryIcelandIndiaIndonesiaIran, Islamic Republic ofIraqIrelandIsle of ManIsraelItalyJamaicaJapanJerseyJordanKazakhstanKenyaKiribatiKorea, Democratic People’s Republic ofKorea, Republic ofKuwaitKyrgyzstanLao People’s Democratic RepublicLatviaLebanonLesothoLiberiaLibyan Arab JamahiriyaLiechtensteinLithuaniaLuxembourgMacaoMacedonia, The Former Yugoslav Republic ofMadagascarMalawiMalaysiaMaldivesMaliMaltaMartiniqueMauritaniaMauritiusMayotteMexicoMoldova, Republic ofMonacoMongoliaMontenegroMontserratMoroccoMozambiqueMyanmarNamibiaNauruNepalNetherlandsNew CaledoniaNew ZealandNicaraguaNigerNigeriaNiueNorfolk IslandNorwayOmanPakistanPalestinianPanamaPapua New GuineaParaguayPeruPhilippinesPitcairnPolandPortugalQatarReunionRomaniaRussian FederationRWANDASaint Barthélemy Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da CunhaSaint Kitts and NevisSaint LuciaSaint Martin (French part)Saint Pierre and MiquelonSaint Vincent and the GrenadinesSamoaSan MarinoSao Tome and PrincipeSaudi ArabiaSenegalSerbiaSeychellesSierra LeoneSingaporeSint Maarten (Dutch part)SlovakiaSloveniaSolomon IslandsSomaliaSouth AfricaSouth Georgia and the South Sandwich IslandsSouth SudanSpainSri LankaSudanSurinameSvalbard and Jan MayenSwazilandSwedenSwitzerlandSyrian Arab RepublicTaiwanTajikistanTanzania, United Republic ofThailandTimor-LesteTogoTokelauTongaTrinidad and TobagoTunisiaTurkeyTurkmenistanTurks and Caicos IslandsTuvaluUgandaUkraineUnited Arab EmiratesUnited KingdomUnited StatesUruguayUzbekistanVanuatuVenezuela, Bolivarian Republic ofVietnamVirgin Islands, BritishWallis and FutunaWestern SaharaYemenZambiaZimbabweI also wish to receive emails from AAAS/Science and Science advertisers, including information on products, services and special offers which may include but are not limited to news, careers information & upcoming events.Required fields are included by an asterisk(*)The LHC is expected to do its work by 2030, however, and for decades physicists have generally planned that the next accelerator would be a roughly 30-kilometer straight-shot linear collider. It would fire electrons into positrons to create cleaner collisions and study in detail whatever was discovered by the LHC. (There are two distinct designs for the proposed linear collider: the International Linear Collider (ILC) and the Compact Linear Collider (CLIC).)But in the past few years, interest has been growing in an alternative path. In it, CERN would build a circular electron-positron collider called TLEP roughly three times as long as the LHC. After running that machine for a couple of decades, CERN researchers would then reuse the tunnel for a new proton collider that could reach energies seven times higher than the LHC, opening a new realm of high-energy exploration. The new Future Circular Colliders program aims only to develop those plans to a level comparable to plans for a linear collider, says James Gillies, CERN’s spokesman. “It’s not about digging holes in the ground now or asking governments for money,” Gillies says, “it’s just about considering the technology that would be available in 20 or 30 years.”If CERN officials eventually opted for the new plan, they would be repeating a recycling strategy that paid out handsomely for them in recent decades. In the 1980s, CERN built a lower energy electron-positron collider called LEP, which cost 1.3 billion Swiss francs and cemented much of physicists’ prevailing standard model by studying particles called the W and Z bosons in detail. After LEP shut down in 2000, physicists then reused the LEP tunnel to house the LHC, which cost 6 billion Swiss francs and turned on in 2008, saving a billion or two in construction expenses. By putting two machines consecutively in the same tunnel, the new plan would seek to realize similar savings, CERN’s Janot says. The tunnel was “by far” the most expensive part of building LEP, he says, “and so it would be for TLEP.”The real question would be whether TLEP would be as fruitful as a linear collider. Because electrons racing in a circle radiate x-rays like mad, a circular machine could not reach as high an energy as a linear collider could—which was the whole reason for planning such a machine. So if the LHC coughs up new particles that are heavier than about 400 times the mass of a proton, then only a linear collider could make them, says Alain Blondel, a physicist at the University of Geneva.But if all the LHC finds is the Higgs, then the search for new physics will shift to studying it and other familiar particles in great detail. Physicists would hunt for unusual decays and small deviations from the particles’ predicted properties, which could be signs of particles just beyond the LHC’s reach. In that case, the circular machine would be ideal, as it could produce much more data, including 10 to 30 times as many Higgs as a linear collider, Blondel says.Of course, all of these considerations come into play only if the circular machines scenario is really technologically feasible. And even if it is, changing course to a circular machine may be a wrenching process, Blondel says. “Many researchers have put a lot of effort into the linear colliders,” he says. Still, with its two-for-one economy, the new plan may be very attractive. After all, a billion saved is a billion earned.last_img read more

Watch: Novak Djokovic just can’t catch up with his three-year old boy

first_imgNovak Djokovic hasn’t had the best of times on court over the last couple of years. Injuries, lack of focus and not being in the right frame of mind has not helped his cause.But the Serbian came back strong and won this year’s Wimbledon at Centre Court last month after playing some inspiring tennis and displaying his trademark stamina and ability to ease past his opponents as he beat ‘marathon man’ Kevin Anderson 6-2 6-2 7-6 (7-3) in the final.The win at the Championships gave him his 13th Grand Slam title and ended a 25-month barren run at majors. And all of that happened in the presence of a very special person in his life.”It feels amazing because for the first time in my life, I have someone screaming ‘daddy, daddy’ and it’s a little boy right there,” he said, highlighting his son’s presence with his wife Jelena Djokovic in the stands.”He wasn’t allowed into the matches because he is under five, but we were hoping if this happened, if I hold the trophy, he can be there to witness it, so I cannot be happier. I am very emotional for him being there, my wife and my whole team.”For the first time in my life, I have someone screaming daddy, daddy!”A 13th Grand Slam title for @DjokerNole, but this one will hold a special place in his heart #Wimbledon pic.twitter.com/sQRClwWT0iWimbledon (@Wimbledon) July 15, 2018″He was by far the best sparring partner I had in the last couple of weeks,” an ecstatic Djokovic said.advertisementAnd as Djokovic gets ready to play the US Open, he is making sure that he is in the right frame of mind and he continues to keep his focus like he did at Wimbledon.On Wednesday, Djokovic posted a video on Instagram, where he was seen spending some quality time with his son Stefan in the lawns. The father-son duo were running outdoors and the former was seen struggling to keep up with his three-year-old.Djokovic is a father of two as he and his wife Jelena welcomed their second child, daughter Tara, last year in November. Following which, he took to Instagram to thank his wife and fans for all the support.”Very happy and proud to welcome our little girl Tara to our home. Jelena and I have been hand in hand on this journey and as a man, I have to send my love and admiration to every single woman out there for going through so much pain and effort to create life, to bring life and raise a human being…what a blessing to have an opportunity to be a parent,” Djokovic said.”Thank you for celebrating the birth of my daughter and sending my family all the love and best wishes in the past few days. On behalf of me and Jelena, I want to say thank you! We are back from hospital, Jelena and Tara are my angels, and Stefan is a proud big brother who wants to take part in baby chores 🙂 Life is divine!”With his mind back on track and fitness on point, Djokovic will be aiming to regain his form all over again and roll back the years at the US Open, which starts on August 27 at Queens in New York City.last_img read more

We await him, he’ll be one of ours from July, as the contract has already been deposited with the Lega Serie A,” he said.Younes will remain in the Eredivisie for the rest of the season and his agent, Nicola Innocentin, told GianlucaDiMarzio.com a five-year deal has been agreed, after reports had emerged suggesting the player had rejected a switch to Italy.”After the unfounded rumours circulated in Naples… I want to clarify that the player went to Rome to carry out the medical examinations and to sign the contract for June, because that was the initial agreement to be completed and the five-year contract was obviously signed after medical visits,” he stated before Wednesday’s deadline.”The next day in Naples he did more blood tests and went to see the game at San Paolo, waiting for Ajax and Naples to find an agreement to be able to anticipate the transfer.”However, the situation changed with the emergence of personal issues in Germany, which delayed the completion of the transfer.”In the meantime, however, the boy had family problems that led him to ask the two [clubs] not to go immediately and to postpone the transfer for June,” Innocentin added.  “So, I want to clarify that… the immediate departure of Younes [was only prevented by] family reasons. In the last hours it was unreachable because it was simply by air.”Capped five times by Germany, the 24-year-old will hope to force his way into Joachim Low’s World Cup squad after making his international debut last year.last_img read more

Vector Puts the Art in Smartwatch

first_imgMP3 player. Smartphone. Tablet. Phablet. Laptop.Like any gentleman alive in the year 2015, you probably have at least two of the above. If you’ve been paying attention to tech news, you know that today’s developers are trying to add smartwatches to that list. We think that’s just fine; however, it’s important to be smart about one’s smartwatch purchase. That’s why we’re excited for the two new smartwatches from Vector Watch.Vector — which is helmed by former Timex CEO Joe Santana — offers solutions to several problems facing smartwatches. Considering how new smartwatches are, they probably won’t be replacing your other mobile devices anytime soon. Until then, the smartwatch will be just another screen that absorbs your time. Vector’s efficient smartwatches, on the other hand, are designed to make your life simpler and sleeker.Most smartwatches are also plagued by the embarrassment factor — in a recent poll, 35 percent of respondents said they would feel embarrassed or self-conscious wearing wearable technology. To this, we say, just look at the Vector watches — would you be embarrassed to wear that? These look like million-dollar watches from the future, yet they only cost $199 and $349.The Luna boasts a 44mm stainless steel case topped with hardened mineral crystal, while the Vector Meridian has a rectangular 40.5mm case. For either watch, you can choose between a solid stainless steel bracelet, a lined leather strap, or a silicon strap.Related: The Manual Wind: 3 Worth it Watches for Under $500If the sleek, minimalist aesthetic doesn’t woo you, the functionality will.

Taylor trial at UNbacked court a model for international justice says Prosecutor

14 July 2008The Chief Prosecutor of the United Nations-backed Special Court for Sierra Leone (SCSL), which is trying former Liberian President Charles Taylor for war crimes and crimes against humanity, says many commentators refer to the court as a model for international justice. “It shows that the trial of a former chief of State can be conducted openly and fairly and we’re very proud to date of the progress that’s been made,” Stephen Rapp told reporters in New York today.Mr. Taylor is facing 11 counts of war crimes, crimes against humanity and other serious violations of international humanitarian law – including mass murder, mutilations, rape, sexual slavery and the use of child soldiers – for his role in the decade-long civil war that engulfed Sierra Leone, which borders Liberia. He has pleaded not guilty to all charges against him. Mr. Rapp said the prosecution’s case is that Mr. Taylor aided and abetted two rebel groups, the Armed Forces Revolutionary Council (AFRC) and the Revolutionary United Front (RUF), which committed numerous atrocities during the civil war. He noted 59 insiders, people who were at one time very close to the former Liberian President, are providing evidence as witnesses to support his case that Mr. Taylor “was behind the planning of this campaign of terror and atrocity, that he did various steps to order and instigate those crimes and, at a bare minimum at least, he aided and abetted these crimes by providing crucial arms and materiel in return for diamonds, at a time when all the world knew that these rebels were committing horrendous offenses against human beings.”Currently the SCSL is hearing its 35th prosecution witness, Mr. Rapp said, adding that he expected that the trial would wrap up within a year after the defence has also made its case.In 2006, the Security Council authorized the staging of Mr. Taylor’s trial at The Hague, Netherlands, citing reasons of security.The Court, established in January 2002 by an agreement between the Sierra Leonean Government and the UN, is mandated to try “those who bear greatest responsibility” for war crimes and crimes against community committed in the country after 30 November 1996. Last year, it reached an agreement with the British Government whereby Mr. Taylor will serve out his sentence in the United Kingdom if he is convicted.Mr. Rapp also noted today that the Security Council is holding a debate on children and armed conflict this week, and stressed that the SCSL had obtained the first convictions in history for the crime of the enlistment or use of children under the age of 15 in hostilities.In February the Court upheld convictions against Alex Tamba Brima and Santigie Borbor Kanu, who are both serving 50-year prison terms, and Brima Bazzy Kamara, who is serving 45 years, after all three were found guilty of 11 charges, including committing acts of terrorism, murder, rape and enslavement and conscripting children under the age of 15 into armed groups. read more

Lankan detained in Ramanathapuram without valid documents

Police, who got suspicious about his movements at Erwadi where he is staying in a lodge, found that he had come about a month ago. A Sri Lankan national was arrested at Erwadi in Ramanathapuram in India for allegedly entering the country without valid documents, the Press Trust of India reported.Police are maintaining tight vigil in the district in view of Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s visit to inaugurate the memorial of former President A P J Abdul Kalam at Rameswaram on July 27. Kasim Bai (60), hailing from Ul Bandal Street in Colombo, was arrested for allegedly entering the country without any valid documents, police said. He told police that he had come by a regular Air Lanka flight and landed at Tiruchirappalli and that he had lost his passport, they said.However, police said he was giving contradictory replies to various questions including purpose of his visit, and suspected that he could have come by an illegal ferry. read more

New Market draws a crowd

Gerarda Del Priore, an employee of Brock Dining Services, cooks up a stir-fry dish at the 360 Grill.On one side, there’s a quarter chicken dinner with a freshly cooked side dish. A few steps away at the 360 Grill, there’s a stir-fry of local vegetables cooked on a steaming circular grill. At the deli, there are custom-made sandwiches on four types of local bread. The bakery serves up fresh waffles and crepes made to order.It’s not the sort of fare ever seen by the usual lunchtime crowd at Brock. But the Market is not the usual dining experience.Opened in early May, the Market features such fare as a salad bar, fresh sushi, gourmet burgers and sweet potato fries. A newly built seating area — with a ring of windows near the ceiling to let in natural light — seats more than 500 people.Dan Gelson, dinner cook, serves a chicken dinner.Response from the Brock community has been overwhelmingly positive, said Tom Arkell, director of Community and Ancillary Services. Despite there being no classes and less foot traffic, the Market saw 1,000 people each day in its first four days when it opened in early May.“There’s been some pent-up demand for this,” he said. “When people walk through the marche, there’s that ‘wow’ factor.”Construction started on May 3, 2009 and took about a year. The concept was to make the Market a hub for fresh local food, as well as “a lower-key social space and extension of the Learning Commons,” Arkell said. The Market seating area is 12,000 square feet, while the marche is 5,000 square feet. The project cost about $9 million.When a meal is ordered in the Market, Arkell said, “if it’s available locally, it’s procured locally.” That includes the coffee and the meat used in sandwiches and meals. If people are curious when they’re ordering, they can always ask.“We would encourage anyone to chat with any of our chefs and ask about our local ingredients,” said Arkell, who calls the Market “a celebration of Niagara’s best.”The early May opening turned out to be perfect timing for the university, Arkell said. If it opened during the regular school year, there would have been a huge crowd of customers and less room for errors and experimentation. This launch meant staff could address any problems in a more relaxed atmosphere, he said.In the future, there will be a public art display in the space. The Market also provides a dining area for Centre for the Arts patrons.And with a space so inviting, Arkell expects returning students will hang out at the Market without ordering food. That’s OK too, he said.“We expect a big crowd to be landing here and not eating here,” he said. “But it’s a social space. That’s what it’s built for.”Links:• Slideshow of the construction of the Niagara Market• Major Projects — Thistle Courtyard (Facilities Management)While there will be some events there, the newly built Market is “primarily a dining and social space,” Tom Arkell says. read more

Synchronized Swimming Ohio State will always have a spot for Jessica Beck

Ohio State synchronized swimmers circle around before the start of the 2018 OSU Zero Wast Dual Meet, leaving a space open for Jessica Beck, on Jan. 19, 2018. Credit: Courtesy of Ohio State AthleticsBefore and after every meet, the Ohio State synchronized swimming team gathers in a circle outside the pool, always leaving one spot open.From the stands, fans might be able to hear the athletes singing the lyrics of “Long Time Sun” or “Carmen Ohio.”When Jessica Beck unexpectedly passed away in 2005, the synchronized swimming team created a pact that there would always be an open space for Beck in their pregame and postgame tradition the team calls “The Circle.”“[Beck is] just our forever teammate so that’s her forever spot,” senior Quinn Connor said. “It’s a different spot every time. It can be by whoever wants to have her there.”The history of Ohio State is full of various traditions and rituals among current athletes on teams at the university and former student athletes.For “The Circle,” coaches, swimmers and even alumni meet next to the pool, unless the meet is at home. At their home pool, the swimmers stand between the dive well and the pool.Before each meet, while in the circle, they sing a song called “Long Time Sun” and after the meet concludes, they gather again to sing “Carmen Ohio,” an Ohio State tradition after many sporting events. Head coach Holly Vargo-Brown, an Ohio State synchronized swimmer from 1986 to 1990, remembered being a part of some of the original circles, but couldn’t pinpoint exactly when the ritual began.Vargo-Brown said “The Circle” unites the past and the present and provides a space for everyone to take a second to breathe. She also stressed the importance of current swimmers connecting with alumni so they might understand how fast time as a member of the team passes.“It’s like synchronized swimming’s huddle,” Vargo-Brown said. “It’s that moment for us to just pull together and remind that we’re all close.”“The circle is probably my favorite part of the meet,” sophomore Kaitlyn Carboun said. “That’s the time that you feel most connected to everyone and pump each other up and get ready for what’s about to happen.”Once a year, though, that circle is closed. Instead of excitement and joy, tears are shed for a cherished former Buckeye.On Feb. 10, the team traveled to Beck’s hometown of Richmond, Virginia, for an annual meet. Each year while in Richmond, the team circles around Beck’s headstone with tears shed for the teammate many on the team never had a chance to meet.“I think it’s interesting that everyone has a unique connection with Jessica, even though we haven’t met her,” Carboun said. “She wrote a poem that’s outside of our locker room and her name is written on the door.” read more

Her father is from the Dominican Republic and a mother from Puerto Rico.Newton recounted the encounter with 44-year-old Beckham, a fashion designer, during her appearance on the Graham Norton Show, when guests were asked who they thought they most resembled.She explained that she knew exactly who she looked like after the chance meeting with Beckham following a SoulCycle class in Los Angeles.”It’s Zoe Saldana,” she responded. Zoe SaldanaCredit: Stuart C. Wilson “Recently I was in … LA and Victoria Beckham, who I have actually met a few times, was there. Thandie Newton “We were chatting away when she said: ‘It’s so great that you are here when you are pregnant.'”I said: ‘I actually had my baby a couple of months ago.’ We carried on chatting and it was obvious she thought I was someone else, so I said: ‘Do you think I am Zoe Saldana?'”Victoria was absolutely mortified! It was actually OK as Zoe is a rare beauty, but really? Up close? Come on! And, I am British!”It is believed the encounter took place in 2014 when Newton gave birth to her third child, a son called Booker Jombe Parker.Saldana gave birth to twin boys Bowie and Cy Perego-Saldana in the same year.  Zoe Saldana Credit:Mike Marsland Beckham is not the first to be publicly humiliated due to a case of mistaken identity.In 2014, Samuel L Jackson, the actor, scolded a US television host who mistook him for fellow actor Laurence Fishburne.The reporter began his interview with Jackson by asking about his recent Super Bowl commercial.He was referring to an advert for the new Kia sedan – in which Fishburne reprised his role from The Matrix.“We may all be black and famous but we don’t all look alike,” Jackson told him. “There’s more than one black guy doing a commercial. Actors and actresses are used to being recognised and approached by fans who feel they know them.But as Victoria Beckham knows only too well, a case of mistaken identity can prove more than a little embarrassing.Thandie Newton, who stars in Line of Duty and Westworld, has revealed that the former Spice Girl was “mortified” when she engaged her in conversation after confusing her with Zoe Saldana.There began an awkward exchange that left Newton baffled before it dawned on her that Beckham thought was talking to someone else.Although both women are actresses, one is British and the other American.Newton, 45, was born in London to a Zimbabwean mother and English father. Rupert Grint, who played Ron Weasley in Harry Potter, has spoken about how he is regularly mistaken for Ed Sheeran.”It’s kinda 50/50 now. It’s like if someone stops me, it could go either way. I could be Ed or I could be me,” he said last year.“Leo Sayer, he came up to me and he said he loved my music. Of course, thinking I was Ed. I just, yeah, I play along.”Meryl Streep has told how she is often confused for fellow actress Glenn Close. Zoe Saldana “I’m the ‘What’s in your wallet?’ black guy.

Final tribute Slain football coach is hailed as a hero

first_imgWhen Joe LaGuardia heard there had been a mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, he said he knew in the pit of his stomach that his longtime friend Aaron Feis was doing everything possible to save students.LaGuardia was heading to an Ash Wednesday service when he got news of the shooting.“There wasn’t a question in my mind that after I finished Ash Wednesday service I had to go and check out Aaron’s Facebook page or get ahold of the family because I know that Aaron would be running to save lives, I just knew it,” LaGuardia said Thursday at Feis’ funeral.Feis, an assistant football coach and security guard at the school of 3,200 students on the edge of the Florida Everglades, was among 17 gunned down by a former student who police said returned to the school with an AR 15 assault-style rifle just before dismissal on Feb. 14. He entered the freshman building and began shooting into classrooms. Minutes later, he dropped the weapon in a stairwell and fled with other students. He was arrested about an hour later in a neighborhood not far from the school.Football players wearing Stoneman Douglas jerseys carried Feis’ casket into the Thursday service at the Church of the Glades in Coral Springs where family and friends gathered to remember him as loyal and caring.Former student Brandon Corona called Feis, 37, “a counselor to those who had no father figure.” He said Feis often worked two or three jobs to make ends meet for his family, and he loved his truck. “His time was infinite when it came to students and athletes,” Corona remembered.last_img read more

first_img Updated: 4:39 PM I’m not interested in being part of the president’s photo-op while Americans are hurting from the shutdown.When the Senate and the president act to open the government, then we can meet and have a discussion on real border security. #EndTheShutdownhttps://t.co/lS6uqxiEjc— Rep. Scott Peters (@RepScottPeters) January 16, 2019Rep. Peters also sent a letter to President Trump formally declining his invite.Congressman Peters serves the 52nd District of California, which covers much of central San Diego County including Poway, Coronado, and large portions of the City of San Diego. He is a member of the House Energy and Commerce Committee and the House Veterans’ Affairs Committee. The Congressman is a former environmental attorney, City Council President, and Port Commission Chairman. WASHINGTON D.C. (KUSI) – The White House sent invitations to a bipartisan group of congressional lawmakers for a meeting on border security as the government shutdown reaches day 25, the longest in United States history. But, all the Democrats declined the invitation.White House press secretary Sarah Sanders confirmed no Democrats would attend the meeting, listing instead nine Republican members of the House who will.“Today, the President offered both Democrats and Republicans the chance to meet for lunch at the White House,” Sanders said in a statement. “Unfortunately, no Democrats will attend. The President looks forward to having a working lunch with House Republicans to solve the border crisis and reopen the government. It’s time for the Democrats to come to the table and make a deal.”She said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer “refuse to negotiate.”President Trump did not invite Pelosi, but instead invited rank-and-file Democrats from districts where he is popular.Democrat Congressman Scott Peters (CA-52) was invited and released the following statement after declining President Trump’s invitation to the White House to discuss border security and the ongoing government shutdown:“Our priority should be to re-open the government, so it can fully serve the American people. Then, we can have a serious discussion about real solutions to border security. I’m not interested in a photo op while Americans are hurting from the longest shutdown in our nation’s history.I’ve met with President Trump before to advocate for San Diego’s border economy, defend Dreamers, and explain that technology upgrades are the best investment in border security—but that wasn’t during a month-long government shutdown.The shutdown can end with a vote in the Senate and a signature by the president. The House has presented multiple options to get furloughed employees back to work and open shuttered agencies. Republicans are out of excuses. Until they act, they own this.” Posted: January 15, 2019 Congressional Democrats, including Rep.

Platforming and Tower Defense Aegis Defenders is Just Two Things

first_imgStay on target Trade In Your Nintendo Switch For a Better Battery (With a Catch)Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech Suits Among its other successes following its debut last year, the Nintendo Switch established itself as a great home for independent games. Picking up the torch from the failed PlayStation Vita, the Switch’s power and form factor allow you to play intriguing indie games on the go while also not sacrificing a home console experience with the more modest titles.In 2018 that trend continues with prominent Switch indies like Celeste and Dandara. Although they may be on other platforms as well, the console/handheld hybrid just adds that extra boost. And now, also getting that boost is Aegis Defenders, a new game that’s half co-op platformer and half tower defense, just two video game things.We don’t mean to sound reductive, though. The developers at GUTS Department didn’t successfully crowdfund Aegis Defenders four years ago just because it merges two staple gaming genres. They sold the game on the promising gameplay potential that pairing could provide, as well as the setting that gameplay takes place in.AdChoices广告Inspired by 16-bit fantasy classics, Aegis Defenders has players teaming up to stop an evil empire with ancient technological weapons. It’s all rendered in gorgeous and fluid pixel art, including cameos from other throwback indie stars like Shovel Knight. Each players chooses from among four unique characters, who have illustrated portraits along with in-game sprites.The co-operative element comes from managing the fact that each character has their own special skills. The devs compare the 2D platforming segments to Metroidvanias, a genre dependent on exploring dangerous new territory full of hostile monsters using strange items. So you’ll have to rely on each other to survive and salvage. Or swap between the characters yourself at anytime. Meanwhile, the other half of the game is 18 levels of tower defense action where you strategically fight off waves of invaders daring to set foot in your home base.Splitting your time between exploring and defending sounds like a nice way keep things varied, almost like splitting your time between hunting monsters and cooking them. Plus anything is better with great art and great friends. But don’t take our word for it. Aegis Defenders launches February 8 for $20 on Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, and PC.Note: Aegis Defenders is published by Humble Bundle, part of the same company as Geek.com.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.last_img read more

March 7, 2013 — Ultrasound technology could soon experience a significant upgrade that would enable it to produce high-quality, high-resolution images, thanks to the development of a new key material by a team of researchers that includes a professor in the department of biomedical engineering at Texas A&M University.The material, which converts ultrasound waves into optical signals that can be used to produce an image, is the result of a collaborative effort by Texas A&M professor Vladislav Yakovlev and researchers from King’s College London, The Queen’s University of Belfast and the University of Massachusetts Lowell. Their findings appear in the current issue of Advanced Materials.The engineered material, known as a “metamaterial,” offers significant advantages over conventional ultrasound technology, which generates images by converting ultrasound waves into electrical signals, Yakovlev explained. Although that technology has advanced throughout the years it is still largely constrained by bandwidth and sensitivity limitations, he said. These limitations, he added, have been the chief obstacle when it comes to producing high-quality images that can serve as powerful diagnostic tools.The metamaterial developed by Yakovlev and his colleagues is not subject to those limitations, primarily because it converts ultrasound waves into optical signals rather than electrical ones. The optical processing of the signal does not limit the bandwidth or sensitivity of the transducer (converter) — and that’s important for producing highly detailed images, Yakovlev said.”A high bandwidth allows you to sample the change of distance of the acoustic waves with a high precision,” Yakovlev noted. “This translates into an image that shows greater detail. Greater sensitivity enables you to see deeper in tissue, suggesting we have the potential to generate images that might have previously not been possible with conventional ultrasound technology.” In other words, the new material may enable ultrasound devices to see what they haven’t yet been able to see.While Yakovlev’s research is not yet ready for integration into ultrasound technology, it has successfully demonstrated how conventional technology can be substantially improved by using the newly engineering material created by his team, he noted.The material, he noted, consists of golden nanorods embedded in a polymer known as polypyrrole. An optical signal is sent into this material, where it interacts with and is altered by incoming ultrasound waves before passing through the material. A detection device would then read the altered optical signal, analyzing the changes in its optical properties to process a higher resolution image, Yakovlev explained.”We developed a material that would enable optical signal processing of ultrasound,” Yakovlev said. “Nothing like this material exists in nature so we engineered a material that would provide the properties we needed. It has greater sensitivity and broader bandwidth. We can go from 0-150 MHz without sacrificing the sensitivity. Current technology typically experiences a substantial decline in sensitivity around 50 MHz.”This metamaterial can efficiently convert an acoustic wave into an optical signal without limiting the bandwidth of the transducer, and its potential biomedical applications represent the first practical implementation of this metamaterial.”Yakovlev’s collaborators are Wayne Dickson and Anatoly Zayats of King’s College London; John McPhillips, Antony Murphy and Robert Pollard of The Queen’s University of Belfast; and Viktor Podolskiyof the University of Massachusetts Lowell.For more information: http://tamutimes.tamu.edu FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享center_img 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 Feature | March 07, 2013 Texas A&M Research Contributes to Improved Ultrasound Imaging News | Ultrasound Imaging | July 26, 2019 Intelligent Ultrasound Group Collaborating With the National Imaging Academy Wales Artificial intelligence (AI)-based ultrasound software and simulation company Intelligent Ultrasound Group plc (AIM:… read more Related Content News | Ultrasound Women’s Health | July 11, 2019 FDA Clears Koios DS Breast 2.0 AI-based Software Koios Medical announced its second 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). 360 Photos | Ultrasound Imaging | July 09, 2019 360 Degree View of a Mitral Valve Ultrasound Exam on a Vivid E95 System A view of a mitral valve on a GE Healthcare Vivid E95 … read more Technology | Cardiovascular Ultrasound | July 02, 2019 Philips Extends Advanced Automation on Epiq CVx Cardiovascular Ultrasound Platform Philips recently announced new advanced automation capabilities on its Epiq CVx and Epiq CVxi cardiac ultrasound… read morelast_img read more

Cashing Out Through Refinance

first_img Cash-out refinancing is being increasingly used by borrowers and homeowners looking to renovate their homes, consolidate debt, make a purchase, or even as a down payment for a second home, according to a study by LendingTree.According to the data of this study, cash-out refinance loans have risen to 62 percent of all refinancing in the first quarter of 2018 from 54 percent during the same quarter last year. To find out which cities and regions had a greater ability to access cash through refinancing a mortgage, LendingTree analyzed mortgage requests and offers for refinance borrowers between March 1, 2017, and March 1, 2018, based on the location of the property to be mortgaged. It then based the rankings on the percentage of total refinance mortgage funded that included a cash-out portion of the loan. Albany, New York had the highest share of cash-out borrowers with an average loan amount of $166,504 and 73 percent of the refinance mortgages funded with a cash-out portion, the study indicated. In the second place, Portland, Oregon had 72 percent of refinance mortgages being funded with cash-out portion and was tied with Cape Coral in Florida on the percentage. However, the average loan amounts varied with Portland and Cape Coral recording average loan amounts of $266,152 and $162,975 respectively.Boise City, Idaho; Scranton, Pennsylvania; Denver, Colorado; Greenville, South Carolina; Colorado Springs, Colorado; and Tulsa, Oklahoma also made it to this list. Three cities tied for the tenth place in the rankings. They included Des Moines, Iowa; Grand Rapids; Michigan; and Ogden, Utah.When it came to highest cash-out loan amounts, the average borrower in Bridgeport Connecticut took out a loan of $453,307 earning it the first spot on this list. San Jose, California followed with an average loan amount of $451,777. Neighboring San Francisco came in third with an average loan amount of$442,099. Honolulu, Hawaii; San Diego, Los Angeles and Oxnard, California; Washington, D.C.; Seattle, Washington; New York, New York; Boston Massachusetts; and Denver, Colorado rounded off this list.The study found that while loan amounts clearly lined up with cities that had higher home values, no data was available on cities with the most cash-out refinance borrowers.

Kisa calls for investigation into police handling of Mary Rose murder

first_imgAction for Equality, Support, Antiracism organisation Kisa, has expressed grave concern for the fate of the six-year-old daughter of murdered Mary Rose Tiburcio as police launched a massive search operation on Saturday for the missing child.Kisa condemned the emerging actions and/or failure of the competent authorities “and more particularly of the police as to tracking and protection of the victims”.“Mary Rose and her young daughter are the latest victims and the tip of the iceberg of violence against migrant women in Cyprus,” the NGO said.Kisa said it had repeatedly informed the competent authorities and publicly denounced numerous incidents of physical, psychological and other forms of gender-based and racist violence that migrant women are subjected to.To date, no measures or policy, based on the need to take special protection measures in view of their being an especially vulnerable group, subjected to multiple discrimination and forms of violence in Cyprus have been taken, it added.“This violence is exercised by their employers, their partners, the public in general and even by public servants and staff of private employment agencies to which they are forced to apply to in view of their particularly vulnerable residence and employment regime,” Kisa said.It said it had received innumerable reports from migrant women who had applied to the police, the social welfare services and in many instances to courts, and where, instead of being assisted and supported, they came across indifference, unresponsiveness, disregard and in some cases they were re-victimised.“In many cases, unresponsiveness is due to institutional discrimination which is responsible for their exclusion from important legislation and structures for the protection of vulnerable groups. On the basis of its experience to date, Kisa is of the opinion that the wrong actions and/or omissions of the competent authorities as to the investigation of the disappearance of Mary Rose and her young daughter, which was reported almost a year ago, are not unfortunately irrelevant to their ethnic origin and migrant background.”It called for these actions and omissions to be investigated immediately, effectively and transparently and to apportion responsibilities.While the government has, as from July 2017, ratified the European Council Convention on preventing and combating violence against women and domestic violence (Istanbul Convention), it has not as yet taken any substantial measures for its implementation, while the policy and praxis of refusing to accept the particularly vulnerable position of migrant women in relation to all forms of violence is still prevalent, Kisa said.It called on the government to adopt and implement a comprehensive strategy and action plan to effectively deal with violence especially against migrant women and their children, to review all legislation and policies that directly or indirectly render migrant women even more vulnerable to gender-based violence, to take all necessary legislative and other, practical, measures for the effective implementation of the Istanbul Convention and the setting up of all necessary mechanisms in order for victims of gender-based violence to have effective access to their rights.It also called on the minister of justice to order an independent investigation of the handling of the case by the police in order to find any omissions and responsibilities but also to provide proposals for avoiding the repetition of similar handling by the competent authorities in future.Kisa also urged people to participate in the silent vigil in memory of Mary Rose Tiburcio, to be held on Sunday, 21 April, at 4 pm at the municipal park at the Cyta roundabout near Paphos Gate.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoLivestlyChip And Joanna’s $18M Mansion Is Perfect, But It’s The Backyard Everyone Is Talking AboutLivestlyUndoModernizeIf Your Home Has Old Roofing, Read ThisModernizeUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoCypriot tycoon launches ‘Bank of Cannabis’Undoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
