Rabat – King Mohammed VI will pay an official visit to Russia as of Sunday, the Ministry of Royal Household, Protocol and Chancellery announced Friday.During this visit, the King will hold talks with Russian President Vladimir Poutine, the ministry underlined in a statement, adding that the two Heads of State will chair signing ceremony of several bilateral agreements.On this occasion, King Mohammed VI will also meet with several high ranking Russian officials. This royal visit is part of the framework of reinforcing strategic partnership between the Kingdom of Morocco and the Russian Federation.While the stated purpose of the visit is to strengthen economic and political ties between the two countries, analysts say the timing of the visit signals that King Mohammed VI will seek to secure Moscow’s support for Morocco’s position on the Western Sahara conflict and its autonomy plan presented to the Security Council in 2007.MWN with MAP read more

Rabat – Rumors have been circulating on social media that the Real Madrid star, Cristiano Ronaldo, will transfer to the Italian club FC Juventus.Real Madrid’s board members are believed to have accepted a reasonable deal estimated at EUR 100 million, despite Ronaldo’s EUR 1 billion release clause. The contract expires June 2021, four months after Ronaldo’s 36th birthday.According to Spanish football newspaper Marca, Ronaldo has a guarantee signed by Real Madrid, allowing him to break his release clause in case of a “reasonable” offer. FC Juventus has a better opportunity than ever to recruit Ronaldo, as it is the only club bidding on the footballer currently.The bid is proposed at a perfect moment, profiting from the disagreement between Ronaldo and Real Madrid President Florentino Perez and also Ronaldo’s desire to leave Real Madrid.According to Tuttosport, Ronaldo and Juventus have already reached an agreement for a contract until 2022 and a salary of EUR 30 million per year.Doing the math, the player would cost Juventus EUR 220 million over four years. But having Ronaldo in their side will certainly leave a mark on the club and increase its chances of winning the Champions League, which it has only done twice. Real Madrid has won the title 12 times.If Ronaldo departs, Real Madrid will seek a new striker with exceptional talent and performance. The Brazilian star, Neymar Junior, may be the best candidate to fill the blank.Read Also: Hadji’s Shade Eclipses Ronaldo’s Bicycle BeautyEveryone within the team is wondering about Ronaldo’s departure. Fans on Madrid streets are also questioning Ronaldo about his fate with Real Madrid.If Ronaldo joins the Serie A champions, their forward line will be strengthened. They could take down the other Italian clubs and even become unbeatable in the Champions League tournament. Ronaldo created a controversy in the world of football, after speaking to the press upon his third consecutive win of the Champions League when he announced his intention to leave Real Madrid. read more

Rodman Hall is in the provincial spotlight after receiving three nominations for the annual Ontario Association of Art Galleries (OAAG) awards.The Brock-run art centre has been shortlisted for three awards — Art Writing, Art Publication, and Design, Exhibition Catalogue — through the provincial organization.The Radcliff Line and Other Geographies.The nods were earned for Rodman Hall’s publication of The Radcliff Line and Other Geographies. The book is based on a 2015 exhibition of the same name, which was curated by the art centre’s Marcie Bronson and toured nationally.The exhibition and catalogue bring together 20 years of work in sculpture, installation, video, photography and painting by artist Sarindar Dhaliwal.Born in Punjab, India, Dhaliwal was raised in England until coming to Canada at the age of 15. Now based in Toronto, her work has been exhibited widely across Canada since the 1980s.“It is the first comprehensive, in-depth consideration of Dhaliwal’s practice in 15 years,” says Bronson.“For Rodman Hall, this significant exhibition raised the institution’s national profile for its record of providing a high level of support for artists and producing unique and substantial print publications.”The catalogue brings together work from Dhaliwal’s career to create an immersive narrative on the significance of place and the dissonance of the immigrant experience. Multi-page images of Dhaliwal’s work are interspersed with poetry and essays from seven contributors.The closing essay, The Sparrow’s Secret Song: Sarindar Dhaliwal and the Space-Time Continuum by Deborah Root, has earned the publication an Art Writing nomination, and Lauren Wickware’s design for the 224-page catalogue has earned a Design nomination. The book design takes its cue from Dhaliwal’s work and experiences, featuring a vibrant orange and purple cover.The book has also been shortlisted for the Art Publication Award, alongside publications by Gallery 44 and the Art Gallery of Ontario.The OAAG award winners will be announced at a gala event on Nov. 19. Rodman Hall won big at last year’s event, with Elizabeth Chitty’s The Grass is Still Green taking home Exhibit of the Year (Under $10,000). read more

Senior forward Brandon Kearney (25) celebrates his second goal with the rest of the men’s hockey team during the third period of Ohio State’s game against Wisconsin on Nov. 18. Ohio State won 4-0. Credit: Nick Hudak | For The LanternAfter seven straight wins, all in conference, the No. 2 Ohio State men’s hockey team (19-5-4, 12-3-3 Big Ten) will go up against Minnesota (11-14-4, 8-9-3 Big Ten) at home this weekend with an opportunity to lock up the No. 1 seed heading into the Big Ten tournament.Consistency has been key recently for Ohio State, as it has won each of the past seven games, placing the team firmly at No. 1 in the Big Ten and No. 2 in USCHO polls. Minnesota is ranked No. 4 in the Big Ten and currently remains unranked.With two wins against the Golden Gophers, the Buckeyes will clinch the Big Ten in the regular season with four games left on the schedule.The Buckeyes defense has been critical to the team’s success. Junior forward Carson Meyer emphasized the importance of both of their goaltenders: redshirt senior Sean Romeo and sophomore Tommy Nappier.“I think we play incredibly confident in front of each of them the same,” Meyer said. “They’re both doing unbelievable this year.” Where Ohio State sees its defense as one of its greatest assets, Minnesota has seen quite a bit less success this year: the Golden Gophers defense is ranked No. 42 in the nation. That said, the Golden Gophers are strong on the man advantage, with the No. 5 power play in the country and a 26.7 percent success rate.Head coach Steve Rohlik recognizes the significance of going up against a team that finds decent success in defending against power plays.“We’ve got to be good on the power play,” Rohlik said. “Hopefully we’ll get some opportunities, but you’ve got to make your own breaks, and we’ve got to prepare. We’re putting the work in this week, and hopefully we’re ready for it.”Minnesota is led by junior forward Rem Pitlick, who has tallied 17 goals, tied for No. 4 in the country, and 18 assists so far this season. The 35 points is tied for No. 7 in the NCAA.Senior forward Tyler Sheehy trails closely behind with 10 goals and 34 points, which is tied for ninth-most in the country.Both matches against Minnesota this season have resulted in 2-2 ties, with Ohio State winning in the 3-on-3 overtime in each game for two points in the Big Ten as opposed to Minnesota’s one in each matchup. Senior forward Brendon Kearney is hoping to put on a good game for the Ohio State fans to reward their support.The attendance at the Schottenstein Center has been more than 6,800 in the past four home games for the men’s hockey team, a number the Buckeyes reached only four times overall the previous season.“Buckeye Nation is always fantastic,” Kearney said. “For the past few weeks, we’ve been creeping on 10,000 fans a night for the past six or seven home games.” No. 2 Ohio State takes on Minnesota at the Schottenstein Center at 6 p.m. Friday and Saturday. read more

first_imgTalk has been swirling since spring that HTC was eager to get their hands on a streaming music service to help differentiate their smartphones. In March, it looked as though all the pieces were in place when news that Beats Audio — which counts HTC as majority shareholder — was going to acquire streaming music veteran MOG.Things went quiet for a few months after the initial reports leaked out, but now it’s official: Beats has purchased MOG for an undisclosed amount.The Beats brass is reportedly very excited about the acquisition, saying that it’s a vital step in their mission to “bring emotion back” to the music business and put a stop to the “erosion of the music experience.” So, why MOG? For starters, they’ve got an experienced and talented stable of developers. It’s also though that the purchase price was very reasonable (their total funding to date is estimated at around $33 million). Beats Audio took a particular shine to MOG because they were the first service to offer 320kbps streaming — and Beats is known for their focus on fidelity.It’s not yet clear how the deal will impact HTC, but you’ve got to think that an app will begin rolling out in the very near future that will bring MOG  (or an HTC-branded MOG-powered service) to their customers’ phones. They’ve already teased that a voice control app is on the way, after all, and they need to make some magic happen if they’re going to return to their past smartphone glory.More at TechCrunchlast_img read more

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The words ‘heart disease’ are usually associated with old age, or with wrong lifestyle choices – bad diet, lack of exercise and stress. The last thing that comes to mind is the image of a child. Yet one in every 100 children is born with heart disease, says Norm Hutton, CEO of HeartKids.“Eight babies a day are born with child heart disease (CHD),” he says. “It is the highest cause of infant death [and] the statistics are far greater than the awareness.”HeartKids has been committed to changing people’s perception of heart disease since 1990, when nine parents came together to support each other when battling their children’s CHD; in the early days there was little help for such families.“They had no real provision, next to no kind of support, and were facing an extreme lack of information,” says Mr Hutton, who has been at the organisation’s helm for the last two years.“They managed to build a support network that allowed them to gain confidence and tackle the issue collectively.” Margaret Agetzis was one of those nine parents. Her daughter – now 28 years old – was a newborn when she was first admitted to Melbourne’s Royal Childrens Hospital. Four years later she had open heart surgery. Mrs Agetzis says that her connection to other parents helped her cope with the problem her family was facing – speaking with cardiologists, working with the nurses, getting information about heart conditions. “I was not alone in this,” she says. “There were other families affected by the same problem and this eased the situation we were facing.” HeartKids was born out of this experience. The charity managed to build a strong support network for parents and children, sharing information, printing pamphlets, issuing newsletters, holding fundraisers. “We held regular morning teas that helped buy equipment for the hospitals: scales, chairs, anything,” says Mrs Agetzis, who has seen the charity transform from the effort of a group of parents to an incorporated organisation, which now operates across Victoria. “We have an amazing network of hard-working volunteers,” says Norm Hutton, “as well as several employees, based in the RCH and at Monash Heart, at Clayton. “Nowadays, we are not only able to provide hands-on service in case of emergency, provide care, support and information where needed, but we actually invest in research regarding the cause, as well as the cure of CHD. “Our main goal remains the same – to ensure that these children’s parents have all the support they need, from the initial diagnosis to treatment and beyond.” HeartKids has almost 2,000 members in Victoria, most of them parents, but also former ‘heart children’ who have grown and provide their support, sharing their experience. Their involvement is crucial, says the Heartkids CEO, particularly as they enter adolescence, which presents an additional challenge. “Our volunteers talk to them, prepare them, [and] explain to them what they can and what they can’t do with their body. “People who have themselves experience this roller-coaster ride can see things from a teen’s perspective and help them overcome the challenges and take on their responsibilities.” As a self-funded organisation with no government support, HeartKids relies solely on donations, fundraising activities, and corporate support.Tomorrow the charity is taking part in People’s Choice PJs Run, a fundraising race.

first_imgIt should be also noted that RMP has also decided to give support to UDF to defeat P Jayarajan in the constituency. Earlier, KK Rama of RMP had made it clear that defeating P Jayarajan is a must to end the blood-spilling spree in Kerala politics.However, CPI(M) workers believe that Vadakara constituency will be dipped in red this time, as P Jayarajan will easily win the contest, defeating both UDF and BJP candidates. K Muraleedharan has been named as the Congress candidate in Vadakara constituency for the upcoming Lok Sabha elections. It should be noted that CPI(M) has named former Kannur District Secretary P Jayarajan as their candidate for the constituency.The selection of K Muraleedharan as the Vadakara candidate has apparently racked up positive responses from Congress workers. They believe a strong candidate like K Muraleedharan is capable of challenging a powerful candidate like P Jayarajan and considering the current trend, Muraleedharan has a slight upper hand over the communist leader.After being named as the candidate for Vadakara constituency, Muraleedharan revealed that it is his duty to obey what the party decides. He also added that the battle in Vadakara will be actually the war between clean politics and violent politics.”Only Congress is capable of setting up a strong government in the nation. In the national Cabinet, Narendra Modi has been running worse governance, and in Kerala, blood-shedding politics is going on. To solve both these issues, Congress should win the election at any cost,” Muraleedharan said. Social media users are also supporting Muraleedharan after his name was announced by Congress. As per the UDF supporters, P Jayarajan, who is an accused in a murder case, should not win the election, and a strong candidate like Muraleedharan is capable of defeating him with ease.last_img read more

first_img Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goals August 26, 2016 Interacting with customers is one of my favorite aspects of owning a business. It’s exciting for me to engage them in conversations about the future of their own companies. Finding the right mindset and technologies to help others envision what that future might look like is among the most rewarding experiences any businessperson can achieve.Entrepreneurs tend to also be consultants and trusted advisors. I’ve found that even in Fortune 500 companies with very large teams and budgets, leaders rely on their business partners’ guidance to make smarter decisions. In my line of business, that means using analytics to understand how collecting and evaluating the right data can help transform business insights and processes.In the larger context, I also guide people to make decisions about rapidly changing technology. Depending on a customer’s willingness to adopt new methods, this can be an alternately mind-numbing or head-spinning transition. Even the most astute and progressive business leaders can’t keep abreast of every new solution or application. The technology landscape is too vast. At the same time, companies are adapting, too. This makes it difficult to find the perfect alignment between business goals and the best technologies to support them.I’ve learned that while advancements in analytics have proven very valuable to businesses, critical decision-making often gets left by the wayside. Companies reaching for new tools or analytics applications often buy into the potential of a buzzword. This leads to implementing technologies for which the business is not yet ready. Sometimes, companies incorporate technologies that proved successful for other enterprises but might not deliver the right outcomes for their particular business or the specific challenge they’re trying to address.Here are three common misconceptions that trip up business leaders.1. My business needs big data.I hear this from clients all the time. They call us, wanting to know how they, too, can benefit from big data. The fact is, they don’t need big data. … yet. The real issue is they’re not seeing enough return from their existing data.Businesses looking to address their most critical business issues first should focus on the data in hand. They must extract every insight they can from existing data before they think about collecting more information. Yes, data is created with every click and interaction — but not all data has business value. Think about which types of data will be most useful. For example, do you seek to increase customer retention, improve customer loyalty or capture more cross-sell and upsell opportunities? Maybe it’s all of the above.  Tap into the richness of the data you already have within your organization. You might find you need to augment what you know with data from new data sources. Either way, collect only the data you need.Related: Why Entrepreneurs Should Look Beyond Big Data2. Analytics can replace leadership.Analytics is a driving force in every business sector. It’s also leading to new insights in every area of the business, from logistics and operations to sales and marketing. It’s easy to see why. Analytics helps people make better, data-driven decisions.Businesses shouldn’t confuse analytics with a basic business tenet: Leadership means everything. Companies with a solid culture grounded in leadership, vision and strategy use analytics to inform all of areas of the business, but they don’t look to analytics to lead the way. Data analytics can help measure, monitor and predict. Integrating analytics with data-driven initiatives in other areas of the business will help you figure out what’s working well and what isn’t.Still, the single most critical factor to success is leadership. It provides the foundation on which a data-driven culture is built and the business lens through which data must be viewed. Related: How Analytics and Data Can Undermine Leaders3. Automation and AI are going to upend my business.Many people are talking about artificial intelligence’s potential to replace human workers or eliminate much of the need for human oversight in different business areas. It’s true that certain business aspects can be automated. Processes and tasks that can be automated, should be. These include monotonous or mundane processes as well as those that require computing or organizing large quantities of data.But much like business leaders can’t expect analytics to work miracles on its own, companies shouldn’t rely on automation and AI to replace uniquely human qualities. On average, about 90 percent of today’s analyses are done by humans, with 10 percent performed by machines. This will change as we build technology to help machines get smarter. In another 10 years, some projections peg machines to run 50 percent of all analyses. It’s important to understand that experiments with AI will take place on the periphery of most businesses, where the cost of a mistake is lower. If your entire model is based on algorithms — like Netflix — you might trial AI in more central components of your company. Nevertheless, any business decision that requires judgment, prioritization, reasoning or weighing pros and cons will require human intelligence until machines get much better at running these types of problems.Related: The Many Unheralded Perils of Automating Your Customer ServiceEach of these typical tech misunderstandings offers a fundamental lesson: Just because a technology exists doesn’t mean it’s the right solution for your business. You must carefully evaluate your business challenges and goals against the outcomes a technology or application realistically can produce. Learning from mistakes is part of being a leader. So is avoiding the critical mistakes you shouldn’t make in the first place. 6 min read Register Now »last_img read more

Once installed, that is when users are bombarded with ads such as those for miracle weight loss, offers to get rich quickly, and bogus virus warnings.While they do not seem too harmful and are for the most part annoying, cybercriminals cash in for pestering the victims of adware, and they can cost companies heavy financial losses.

MRI-guided biopsies already outperform standard, non-targeted biopsies. The addition of PET promises to improve targeted biopsies even further.The study from the University of Michigan was published in the July issue of The Journal of Nuclear Medicine.According to the National Cancer Institute, approximately 14 percent of men will be diagnosed with prostate cancer at some point during their lifetime. More than 2.5 million men are estimated to be living with prostate cancer in the United States.Morand Piert, M.D., professor of radiology in the Division of Nuclear Medicine at the University of Michigan, pointed out, “Our positive results suggest that in the future, PET/MRI may become a one-stop imaging test for men with suspected but undetected prostate cancer or for patients undergoing surveillance for known low-risk prostate cancer.” He explains, “Since prostate cancer is often multi-focal and presents with multiple lesions of varying risk, it is important to identify the lesions that harbor the greatest malignant potential. Accurate identification of clinically significant cancer and avoidance of clinically insignificant cancer is the centerpiece of modern prostate cancer diagnosis.”As part of an ongoing prospective clinical trial, researchers studied 36 men with rising prostate-specific antigen (PSA) to assess the value of fusion F-18-choline PET/MRI for image-guided (targeted) prostate biopsies to detect significant prostate cancer, compared to standard (non-targeted, systematic 12-core) biopsies. The biopsy procedures were performed after registration of real-time transrectal ultrasound (TRUS) and included image-guided cores plus standard cores. Histological results were determined from standard and targeted biopsy cores, as well as prostatectomy specimens.Fifteen subjects were ultimately identified with significant prostate cancer (Gleason ≥ 3+4), of which targeted biopsy identified 12, while standard biopsy identified only five. The figure shows a Gleason 3+4 prostate cancer (arrows) as identified on T2-weighted (A) and diffusion-weighted (B) MRI, F-18-choline PET (C), as well as PET/MRI (D). A total of 52 lesions were identified by mpMRI (19 low-, 18 intermediate- and 15 high-risk), and mpMRI-assigned risk was a strong predictor of final pathology (area under the curve (AUC) = 0.81; P < 0.001). Using the mean F-18-choline target-to-background ratio, the addition of F-18-choline to mpMRI significantly improved the prediction of Gleason ≥ 3+4 cancers over mpMRI alone (AUC = 0.92; p<0.001). The study concluded that fusion PET/MRI-TRUS image registration for targeted prostate biopsies is clinically feasible and accurate, and the addition of F-18-choline PET to mpMRI improves identification of significant prostate cancer.Piert noted, “The use of advanced imaging to inform placement of biopsy needles promises to greatly minimize the uncertainty associated with prostate cancer care. Imaging may one day be performed prior to biopsy and, if negative, no biopsy would be needed. To reach that future state, advanced imaging will need to have a superior negative predictive value that may not be obtainable with multi-parametric MRI alone. He added, “Although we used F-18-choline PET in this trial, it is likely that other radiotracers, which are more specific for prostate cancer — for example, those that target PSMA — may hold even greater promise.”For more information: www.jnm.snmjournals.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 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 Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.

first_img(AP) – A look at what went wrong for the four U.S. generals who have led U.S. and NATO forces in Afghanistan since 2008:Gen. David McKiernan, June 2008 to June 2009-Defense Secretary Robert Gates asked for McKiernan’s resignation a year before his term as commander was set to end. The firing was seen as a rejection by newly elected President Barack Obama of McKiernan’s conventional warfare approach in favor of the more targeted “counterinsurgency” strategy of working to undermine insurgents’ pull on the population.

Stanley A. McChrystal, June 2009 to June 2010-McChrystal, who had a background in special operations, came in with a mandate to remake the war effort with the help of “surge” troops ordered by Obama. A year into that push, an article in Rolling Stone magazine quoted members of McChrystal’s team making disparaging comments about their commander in chief and other senior administration officials. Obama called McChrystal back to Washington to explain and forced him to resign.Gen. David Petraeus, July 2010 to July 2011-Petraeus took over the Afghan command to fill the void left by McChrystal’s abrupt departure and agreed to serve for one year. He completed that term and then retired from the military to become CIA director in September 2011. Petraeus resigned as CIA director on Nov. 9 after he had an extramarital affair with his biographer. The affair came out as part of an FBI investigation into suspicious emails between the biographer and another woman.Gen. John Allen, July 2011 to present-Allen was appointed by Obama to oversee the drawdown of U.S. and international forces ahead of the planned transfer of security responsibility to the Afghan government in 2014. Pentagon officials said early Tuesday that Allen is under investigation for thousands of alleged “inappropriate communications” with the second woman involved in the Petraeus case, a Florida socialite. Allen’s nomination to become the next commander of U.S. European Command and the commander of NATO forces in Europe has now been put on hold.
