RIM could face shareholder backlash over dismal year at annual meeting

TORONTO — Shareholders of Research In Motion, perhaps some of the most staunch supporters of the BlackBerry smartphone, are expected to take a far more critical view of the embattled company at its annual meeting on Tuesday.The meeting in RIM’s hometown of Waterloo, Ont., will be the first time many of them will meet new chief executive Thorsten Heins and the numerous other executives who have come aboard in recent months.It will also be a prime chance for them to grill Heins about the state of the company awash in technical delays, financial underperformance and an eroding stock price.“This is the one time when shareholders can actually get their voice heard,” said Sameet Kanade, a technology analyst at Northern Securities.“I’d be surprised if there weren’t any backlash.”Much has changed since former co-CEO Jim Balsillie stood before RIM’s stakeholders last July and assured them that RIM’s deteriorating stock price — which had just fallen below $30 a share — was merely in a temporary dip. It has since fallen to well below $10 per share.Last year, Balsillie offered up a series of assurances and timelines that have fallen by the wayside. He told the audience that RIM’s foundation was strong and it was on the verge of its biggest product launch in the company’s history — one that would help it meet its financial guidance for the year.As history has it, RIM didn’t launch those products, and still hasn’t. The BlackBerry 10 operating system and its new line of smartphones have proven to be the biggest hurdle the company has ever faced, with delays pushing the release date until early next year.[np-related]The company’s share of the U.S. smartphone market has also eroded to around 10%.Earlier this year, Balsillie left the company, while co-CEO Mike Lazaridis has also stepped aside and taken a lesser position on the company’s board.RIM’s new leadership has been hurriedly trying to rescue the company’s reputation in hopes that consumers will consider buying another BlackBerry instead of the array of alternatives on the market, such as Apple’s iPhone and a flurry of devices operating on the Android system.The company is also in the midst of an international tour intended to convince application developers to make their software available on the new BB10 system, while CEO Heins has made a few media appearances to answer questions from customers.The annual meeting will be a rare opportunity to connect directly with investors, said Carmi Levy, an independent technology analyst based in London, Ont.“From that perspective it is an important event, especially given the turmoil that the company has incurred over the past year,” he said.However, the meeting is unlikely to result in major changes for RIM, especially since any efforts from shareholders to push for a takeover or other significant changes must be submitted ahead of time.What shareholders should expect, however, is some sort of road map for the next six to eight months as RIM tries to survive through the key smartphone selling period that runs from back-to-school season to the start of holiday shopping.“What people are going to be looking for, at least from the investors, is a short-term and a long-term strategic plan that is credible and that they can achieve,” said Zeus Kerravala, a telecom equipment analyst at ZK Research in Boston.“What I’d be asking for is, give me some indicators to look for in the next few quarters that they’re moving in the right direction.” read more

Oil prices surge as attack on Saudi facility disrupts output

An attack on a critical Saudi Arabia oil plant has pushed crude prices sharply higher, though its longer-term impact depends on how long production is disrupted and what this weekend’s attack presages for the future.U.S. crude oil jumped $5.61 per barrel, or 10.2%, to $60.46 per barrel early Monday in electronic trading on the New York Mercantile Exchange. Brent crude, the international standard, surged $7.84 per barrel, or 13%, to $68.06 per barrel.Yemen’s Iran-backed Houthi rebels claimed responsibility for the attack on the Saudi Aramco facility, Saudi Arabia’s largest oil processing plant. It halted production of 5.7 million barrels of crude a day, more than half of Saudi Arabia’s global daily exports and more than 5% of the world’s daily crude oil production. Most output goes to Asia.The Associated Press read more

Libya UN announces political initiative as concern deepens over violence in the

In the political initiative announced by Tarek Mitri, Special Representative of the Secretary-General and head of the United Nations Support Mission in Libya (UNSMIL), Libyan parties will meet in the week before parliamentary elections scheduled for 25 June to work out a binding declaration of principles.“It will feature discussions on urgent and divisive issues in order to reach an agreement, or to narrow the rift, which will pave the way towards concluding the transitional period, beginning with elections,” UNSMIL said in a press release.Many issues, including regional representation and the continued existence of revolutionary militias, remain unresolved in Libya following the 2011 uprising that ousted former leader Muammar al-Qadhafi, and this year has seen some of the worst violence since that struggle, according to Mr. Mitri.On Wednesday, UNSMIL urged the country’s officials to agree on precise means to counter terrorism and other challenges to security and state authority, as fighting raged in Benghazi and elsewhere in the east.Today, during the press conference in which he announced the dialogue initiative, Mr. Mitri said that it has already gained the support of several Libyan actors, chief among them the National Dialogue Preparatory Committee, which includes in its advisory council representatives of all national forces.Meanwhile, the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) today expressed deep concern over the toll on civilians due to the armed clashes in eastern Libya.“We urge all sides to exercise the utmost restraint to avoid further escalation and engage in peaceful dialogue and we call upon the authorities to renew their efforts to meet their obligations under international human rights law, specifically with respect to protecting the right to life,” OHCHR spokesperson Rupert Colville said at a press briefing in Geneva.Mr. Colville strongly condemned the 4 June murder in Sirte of Michael Greub, an official of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and deplored the detention of four UNSMIL staff members in recent weeks.“We are concerned that space to operate for human rights defenders, humanitarian workers, media professionals, and all those engaged in efforts to support Libya is shrinking by the day,” he said. “We call on all parties in Libya to ensure that UN officials and aid workers can perform their impartial human rights and other work without harassment or intimidation,” he added. read more

Brock funds additional Daughters for Life scholarships

Brock will provide additional opportunities for women in the Middle East to seek higher education through an expanded partnership with the Daughters for Life (DFL) Foundation.During the charitable organization’s fifth annual gala dinner in Toronto Nov. 17, the University announced it will fund two new scholarships.Daughters for Life is led by Nobel Prize nominee Dr. Izzeldin Abuelaish, a Palestinian physician and renowned peace activist who created the organization after three of his daughters were killed by tank shells in Gaza in 2009. Abuelaish was given an honorary doctorate from Brock in 2016.Brock will grow its connection with DFL by funding scholarships for one master’s and one PhD student starting in 2018. This will provide women who face socio-economic hardship in challenging regions in the Middle East with an opportunity for higher education.Brock University President Gervan Fearon, former President Jack Lightstone and several other members of Brock’s senior administration attended the gala in support of the cause.The additional funding to support new graduate students was made possible by a contribution from Lightstone and his wife Dorothy.“Recognizing education’s role to foster global peace is at the heart of the Daughters for Life Foundation,” said James Mandigo, Vice-Provost Enrolment Management and International. “It is an honour for Brock University to be partnered with DFL to support young women from around the world in a united cause to make the world a better place to live.”Lightstone signed the initial agreement with DFL in 2016, when Brock agreed to provide one full scholarship to a potential candidate for an undergraduate program.Yousra Benradi, of Morocco, was selected for the opportunity. She is now in her level four of ESL, pursuing an undergraduate degree in Biomedical Sciences.“Brock University has not just given me an education, it has given me a beautiful life and a hope and vision for the future,” Benradi said in front of the gala’s sold-out crowd.The foundation aims to help young women of all religions from the Middle East and regional countries pursue studies otherwise inaccessible to them, in the belief that lasting peace in the region depends on empowering girls and young women through education. read more

Kirk Herbstreit talks Ohio State football College GameDay

Fans play corn hole on The Oval during ESPN’s College Gameday on Nov. 21. Credit: Samantha Hollingshead | Photo Editor On Saturday, the statue of William Oxley Thompson will have some company, as ESPN’s College GameDay will be broadcasting live on the Oval in anticipation of the game between No. 3 Ohio State and No. 9 Michigan State. Despite all of OSU’s success on the gridiron, it has been years since College GameDay has come to Columbus for a game. “I can’t believe that we have not been here since 2010,” College GameDay analyst and OSU alumnus Kirk Herbstreit said. “We used to come here, kind of like what we are doing right now with Alabama where we would come once or twice a year.”Every week, College GameDay picks a highly touted game where it will broadcast its show live on Saturday morning. The show typically is on the particular campus from Thursday to Saturday.Regardless of whether or not ESPN is broadcasting the game, the show will go wherever the week’s most anticipated matchup is. “We do tend to travel no matter where the game is … we just travel to what we think is the best game,” Herbstreit said. “It’s been a lot of fun to see the fanbases when we show up. It’s like that that campus will become the face of the sport for 48 hours.”With such a popular show finally making a pitstop in at OSU, many students are excited for the chance to witness it in person.Jarrett Forkey, a fourth-year in chemical engineering, students are planning on arriving the Oval, where the set is placed, early in the morning to get hyped for the game, which is scheduled to kickoff at 3:30 p.m.“It will be a lot more rambunctious than people think,” Forkey said. “It’s been awhile since GameDay’s been here. It’s been awhile since Michigan State’s been here. There are a lot of seniors playing their last game.“There is a lot of excitement here at Ohio State.”Herbstreit agrees that the students will be ready for the game come kickoff.“I expect to see that typical Ohio Stadium nutty atmosphere,” Herbstreit said. “You have one or two games a year where Ohio State feels (the Buckeyes could be upset), and then it’s a proactive atmosphere. It’s where you are creating the sacks or you are creating the interceptions. My guess is that’s the kind of crowd it will be and it will help Ohio State’s defense and their cause.”The hype for College GameDay and for the game that afternoon, according to Herbstreit, really shows the growth of college football as a sport.“Fans get crazier and crazier. That just speaks volumes about college football,” Herbstreit said. “The sport has never been more popular and there’s never been more buzz. The passion is universal and we embrace it. That’s what makes this sport so special.” read more

Jury fails to reach verdict in case where man alleged he was

first_img http://jrnl.ie/3057348 Share8 Tweet Email His actions afterwards were remorseful and guilty. He went to his GP and a rape crisis centre in order to try and find out what had happened. He didn’t try to cover it up, which is a typical reaction from someone with sexsomnia, because they’ve no awareness and no consciousness.“If he had been a sexual predator it would be unusual, with being both sleep-deprived and having taken alcohol, to be able to stay awake to rape someone,” the doctor saidThe prosecution said alcohol intake was a more likely factor in the incident than sexsomnia and that the accused’s actions were not consistent with the condition.Dr Harry Kennedy, a forensic psychologist, gave evidence for the prosecution that he questioned whether it was possible for a male to get an erection during non-REM sleep, the stage of sleep in which sleepwalking occurs.“This is not the normal physiology,” the doctor said. He added that it might be possible for someone to have an erection while transitioning into non-REM sleep but that he would need to see a demonstration of this.Dr Kennedy said actions during sleep were generally “very very simple” and directionless. Speech was incoherent and meaningless, he said.He said the accused’s alleged actions, including pulling up the woman’s skirt and pulling aside her underwear, demonstrated “intact mental ability and therefore consciousness”.Comments are disabled for legal reasonsRead: Renaming a street after Savita Halappanavar “wouldn’t be possible” under current rulesRead: Man stabbed to death in Longford town Source: William MurphyJURY HAS failed to reach a verdict in the case of a man who claimed he was acting in his sleep when he allegedly raped his friend.The 29-year-old man conceded he might have had sex with the woman, but claimed he was suffering from sexsomnia at the time, a rare condition that causes people to carry out sexual acts while asleep.After deliberating for eight hours and 15 minutes over a three-day period, the jury foreman indicated that jurors were deadlocked and unable to reach a verdict.“We’re fairly far apart, I don’t believe we’re going to have an agreement,” the foreman told Mr Justice Patrick McCarthy at the Central Criminal Court. He added that he was “absolutely” sure they would not be able to agree, given more time.Mr Justice McCarthy thanked the jurors for their time and excused them from further service for a period of ten years. The case was adjourned until 28 November when the prosecution will indicate whether it intends to seek another trial.The accused, who cannot be named for legal reasons, had pleaded not guilty to one count of raping the woman at an apartment in Dublin in the early hours of 28 September 2008.Second trialThis was the man’s second trial. A trial collapsed last year due to legal issues just before the jury was due to start deliberating.The trial, which lasted four weeks, heard the man and woman were childhood friends and were in Dublin attending a career fair.On the night of the incident, the man and woman had been at Copperface Jacks nightclub and he had consumed several drinks and a naggin of whiskey before they returned to a friend’s house to sleep.During the night, she said she awoke to find the man having sex with her. She said there was a conversation about contraception in which he was responsive to her. He told her he would go with her in the morning to get the morning-after pillShe said he later admitted he had raped her and they both agreed he would get help from a Rape Crisis Centre. Several months later, she made a complaint to gardaí.The man’s defence team presented evidence from two expert witnesses who said it was likely that he was suffering from sexsomnia at the time. Witnesses also said he had a family history of sleepwalking and he had groped or ground against people in the past while asleep.Sleepwalking“He was in automatism due to his sleep disorder. He was unaware of what he had done,” Dr John Michael Shneerson, former director of a UK sleep clinic and author of The Handbook of Sleep Medicine, told Hugh Hartnett SC, defending.He said that it was personal opinion that the accused “fits very well with sexsomnia”.He jumps through the hoops and fits the template very well… it doesn’t fit in very well with someone who was drunk, awakes and has sex with someone.

Short video le phénomène de la vidéo courte débarque

first_imgShort video : le phénomène de la vidéo courte débarqueAprès l’écrit et la photo, la vidéo s’adapte au format du réseau social. La short vidéo débarque donc pour tenter de supplanter sa grande sœur le GIF. Ce sont des films de quelques secondes spécialement adaptés à une diffusion large et simplifiée sur le Web. Flairant la bonne piste, certains éditeurs proposent déjà des applications qui feront vite adopter le format à de nombreux utilisateurs. La short vidéo fait le Buzz ! Le mini-métrage à la sauce Twitter est en train de devenir un véritable phénomène sur Internet, à un tel point que de nombreux éditeurs s’empressent de lui emboîter le pas.Mais savez-vous ce qu’est une short vidéo ? Il s’agit de films d’une durée située entre 5 et 15 secondes, pris avec son smartphone, à charger simplement sur un compte de réseau social via l’application qui a permis de prendre la vidéo.Michael Downing, qui dès avril 2012 avait senti la bonne affaire, a déjà lancé sa plateforme nommée Tout, permettant de partager de nombreuses vidéos courtes, ou “short vidéos”. Sur le site Mediatrend, il explique que “certains moments dans la vie ne peuvent être expliqué par le texte. Tout raconte la vie telle qu’elle est, en couleur et en son, et s’oppose ainsi à la vie ‘telle qu’elle est écrite en 140 signes ou moins’ (…) Tout le monde n’a pas l’esprit ni les compétences pour s’exprimer dans des blogs ou des tweets, mais nous avons chacun un regard qui nous est propre et ces regards constitueront la base d’une nouvelle forme de conversation et de narration”.Un phénomène qui prend de l’ampleur Depuis Tout, d’autres éditeurs ont également franchi le cap de la short vidéo, comme Capture de Google, fruit d’un partenariat opéré entre le géant de Montain View et Youtube. Lancé en décembre 2012, il est disponible sur iPhone et propose un déclenchement de film original (il suffit de positionner son smartphone en position paysage pour que l’enregistrement s’enclenche), une interface simple et une mise en ligne de la même teneur avec passage intermédiaire sur la plateforme Youtube, pour arriver sur les principaux réseaux sociaux comme Facebook ou Twitter. Via cette application, il est même possible d’ajouter des titres à son œuvre de façon basique, de la stabiliser ou de la couper.Mais si l’étape transitoire sur le site de Youtube peut paraître contraignante pour ce type d’opérations, Twitter lui aussi a décidé de s’engouffrer dans la brèche “short video” avec sa propre application, Vine, qui permet de poster directement ses chefs d’œuvres sur le réseau social. Avec lui, l’enregistrement s’effectue de façon horizontale ou verticale, en 4/3, avec la possibilité de prendre une vidéo par séquence.Du reportage collaboratif ? À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?D’une nouvelle manière de s’exprimer, la short video, du fait de son format, peut également faire évoluer d’autres sphères du Web comme le reportage journalistique. En effet, le partage social peut également être collaboratif, avec des minis vidéos qui, ajoutées à d’autres sur le même sujet, permettent d’élaborer de véritables petits reportages, comme le souligne Michael Downing, lors de son passage à l’École de journalisme de Sciences-Po, en décembre 2012, sur la thématique “Nouvelles pratiques du Journalisme”.On pourra également adosser à la pratique de la short video le secteur de la publicité, avec des possibilité de campagnes virales.Alors la short vidéo, effet de mode transitoire ou phénomène social s’inscrivant dans le temps ? Il semblerait que vu les enjeux naissant autour d’elle, elle prendrait plutôt la seconde direction. Le 28 janvier 2013 à 16:41 • Maxime Lambertlast_img read more

San Diego City Council committee to begin proposed budget review

Necessary improvements were originally estimated to cost $6.5 million, but have since risen to $17 million.The project is now on hold, and the building is being used as a warehouse and workplace for city employees. Gomez said she didn’t find out about the delay until reading the IBA’s report.IBA Analyst Andrea Tevlin also expressed concern over an office building at 101 Ash St. intended to accommodate city employees currently working in rental spaces. The city signed a 20-year lease-to-own agreement for the building in 2016; at that time officials planned to renovate five floors for around $5 million, then move employees into the building last July.Following council approval, city staff began working with planners and determined all 19 floors of the building should be renovated to increase the number of work stations from 800 to 1,150. A round of project bids were rejected; the project is now included in the proposed budget at an estimated cost of $27 million.The city in 2015 also entered into a lease-to-own agreement for the Civic Center Plaza building, where city employees work. Up to an estimated $21.4 million in improvements were anticipated within the first five operation years.Reconfigurations have been put on hold, however, because plaza employees would temporarily move to the City Operations Building during construction. That cannot happen until Development Services Department employees in the Operations Building can permanently move to the renovated Ash Street building.Committee member David Alvarez questioned city staff on how current circumstances have strayed so far from expectations, particularly for the Ash Street building.City Assistant Chief Operating Officer Stacey LoMedico said staff determined a 19-floor renovation is more cost effective in a 15- or 20-year context.“That’s not what the council was told when we approved this. We were told it was ready to move into and that five floors need to be worked on,” Alvarez said. “The cost of this is just astronomical … I would caution the administration moving forward on grand plans that go beyond council approval.”Tevlin’s office recommended possibly scaling back renovations to the Ash Street building closer to original plans. Tevlin also encouraged the creation of financing plans for the three  forementioned buildings, a recommendation backed by committee president Barbara Bry.“It’s clear the city needs a comprehensive real estate strategy going forward, and that we shouldn’t make any large expenditures before we have that,” she said.The IBA report noted several other potential problems with Faulconer’s budget.Nearly $13 million, mainly from Housing Commission reserves, was allocated to operate three large tent shelters and a transitional storage center for the homeless, but no sustainable funding was identified for later years.“As the need for these facilities is likely to continue, we recommend that the council requests that an ongoing funding plan be identified,” IBA Deputy Director Jeff Kawar said.The IBA report also highlighted maintenance reductions across several departments.The budget includes a $882,000 reduction in tree-trimming funds, which is similar to a proposal that was suggested by the mayor’s office, then rejected by the council last year. If the reduction stays in place, the amount of trees trimmed in fiscal year 2019 would fall from 20,000 to 10,000. Trees trimmed once every nine years would instead be maintained once every 21 years,which gave committee member Lorie Zapf pause.“We’ve been having some issues with trees as they become mature and need trimming, and branches fall on people and cause us huge liability,” she said.Faulconer’s budget also proposes a $355,000 reduction in facilities maintenance, a $300,000 reduction in graffiti abatement and a $267,000 reduction in citywide park maintenance.Such reductions likely would result in diminished services at a practical level, Tevlin said. The Facilities Division has for two consecutive years requested funds to hire 21 additional employees.“They feel very strongly they cannot keep up with service levels that have been adopted by the council for those facilities,” Tevlin said.  “It’s something to keep talking about with them to see what the real need is.”Budget hearings are expected to continue through May 9. A final budget will likely be adopted in June.

Owner of derelict barge Davy Crockett pleads guilty

first_imgThe owner of a derelict barge that buckled and leaked oil into the Columbia River has pleaded guilty to two criminal violations of the Clean Water Act.Bret A. Simpson entered his plea Thursday in U.S. District Court in Tacoma. He admitted to unlawfully spilling oil into the Columbia River near Camas, and failing to report that spill to authorities. Simpson now faces possible prison time and hundreds of thousands of dollars in fines as a result of his botched attempt to scrap the 430-foot vessel Davy Crockett.Simpson’s sentencing is scheduled for Oct. 14.The failure to report the offense is punishable by up to five years in prison and a $250,000 fine, according to Simpson’s plea agreement. The illegal spill could carry a penalty of up to one year in prison and a $100,000 fine.Simpson purchased the Davy Crockett in 2010, and federal prosecutors allege he then began to scrap the barge without first removing thousands of gallons of oil and fuel he knew was on board. The converted World War II Liberty Ship broke apart in December 2010, releasing oil into the river where it lay near Camas. Simpson halted the scrapping operation, but never reported the incident to authorities.Additional oil spilled into the river in January 2011, which authorities traced back to the Davy Crockett. That’s when the U.S. Coast Guard stepped in to orchestrate a massive cleanup that spanned 10 months and cost close to $22 million.last_img read more

Two Arrested Following Vehicle Pursuit On The Sterling Highway

first_imgFacebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The Soldotna Alaska State Trooper K-9 Team attempted a traffic stop on a red 2002 Pontiac Grand-Am near mile 64, of the Sterling Highway, on Saturday. According to the online Trooper dispatch, the pursuit ensued during an attempted warrant arrest on Travis Mchone, 32, of Sterling. Mchone had two separate outstanding Warrants for his arrest for Probation Violations totaling the amount of $2,000. Mchone drove at high speeds failing to stop, eventually driving the vehicle down a power line trail where it got stuck in a snow bank. K-9 warnings were given and Mchone complied with commands. Mchone and his passenger Katherine M. Bliss, 26, of Nikiski were both taken into custody without further incident. Bliss was arrested for a Probation Violation for the original charges of MICS-4TH.

Based in Marshfield, Wisc., the program brings much needed care to rural areas with limited access to state-of-the-art technology. In May 2007, the clinic became the first facility in the Midwest to offer digital mobile mammography. From funding through coach design, Marshfield understands the challenges of integrating digital mammography with a mobile platform. “It’s all about mammography access. Whether it’s women in an underserved, rural area or women who are simply unable to get away from work, there’s a huge appreciation for the service we provide,” said Myron Gadke, mobile imaging manager. Equipment SelectionMarshfield chose the Hologic Selenia digital mammography system based on several factors, including equipment size, detector size, cost, and image quality. Radiologists thought the images were “absolutely beautiful.”“At the end of the day, it can be a great machine, but if the image quality isn’t there, it’s meaningless to our radiologists,” said Gadke. Hologic’s reputation as a women’s health leader was also important. “Hologic is a women’s imaging company. A lot of vendors make mammography equipment, but they make lots of other equipment too. I believe that when you do one thing, you tend to it very well,” said Gene Santilli, system radiology director. Planning and MarketingMarshfield did extensive planning to identify target markets and screening locations, and generated interest among women and community leaders. Establishing relationships with key referral sources was critical. Gadke reached out to county coordinators, human resources departments and physicians. As a result, the coach was booked to capacity before it ever hit the road. “You need to build relationships with the communities you’re going to be working with because they will eventually become your referral network,” said Gadke. To fill the occasional vacancy, Gadke markets directly to patients. In January 2009, the mobile program had 59 available days; after a direct marketing campaign, it was once again booked to capacity. Coach DesignMarshfield played a significant role in the van’s design. The clinic worked with LDV Mobile Solutions, the largest specialty vehicle supplier in the U.S., which provides integrated end-to-end mobile solutions. Environmental controls were a major concern. Marshfield insulated the van and installed two sources of heat and air conditioning to maintain the exact temperature for the equipment. To maximize patient comfort, they also focused on aesthetics to create a soothing, relaxed interior. “A lot of women we’re seeing for screening have never had a mammogram before. They’re apprehensive to begin with, so we’ll do anything we can to make it more comfortable,” said Gadke. Though largely satisfied with the design, Gadke would make some changes, including setting up each room in its own zone for more efficient heating and cooling, and replacing the roof air conditioner with a quieter forced air system. Also, a larger 48-foot trailer would provide extra space and the ability to detach the trailer from the tractor in the event of engine problems. Infrastructure Marshfield had to determine the best way to transmit digital images from the coach to the radiologists’ workstation quickly and securely. They investigated several options, and ruled out transferring images via laptops or satellite technology. The clinic chose a method that was both efficient and secure – a network connection at outreach clinics that allowed for a direct image transfer to the workstation upon acquisition. The result is a streamlined workflow that enables some radiologists to finish the interpretation before the patient is checked out. FundingTo launch the digital mobile unit, Marshfield focused on securing both short-term and long-term funding. Short-term resources were used to get the project off the ground – purchasing the coach, equipment, storage devices, and so on – and fund the program’s operation for the first 12 months. At the same time, Marshfield began exploring options for long-term funding. “It takes time to build a successful mobile program and you want to be able to continue operation if current funding sources don’t continue,” said Gadke.Using private funding sources required Marshfield to educate those involved. Communicating their goals – and providing statistics to demonstrate success – was essential to maintaining support. Digital Mobile Mammography: A Successful ImplementationAfter only two years, Marshfield achieved its goal of increasing mammography access. To support the increased demand, Marshfield will launch a larger mobile unit with digital mammography and bone density screening by the end of 2009. Marshfield’s experience shows that with careful planning, a successful mobile mammography program can broaden access to technology and benefit the institution as a whole.

Premium quality features include screen adaptability, an exclusive measuring pen, and a calibrator and calibration app to adjust grayscales according to DICOM standards.Med-Tab has an anti-glare display with patented 11-bit DICOM GSDF hardware grayscale calibration and fixed calibrated brightness of ~300 Cd/m2. An HDMI port connects the device to a larger display (data projector) for peer sharing. An integrated ambient light sensor provides an indicator whether surrounding light is appropriate for image analysis.For easier image analysis, the screen is 69 percent larger than the iPad Air 2, and 67 percent larger than the Galaxy Tab 4. Med-Tab runs with the Android 4.4 operating system and supports most major picture archiving and communication system (PACS) vendors using HTML5 zero footprint technology from Image Information Systems. It is available with Image’s zero footprint DICOM viewer, iQ-4VIEW.For more information: www.med-tab.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Enterprise Imaging | July 29, 2019 Philips Announces 10-year Enterprise Informatics Agreement With Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire de Nancy Philips and Centre Hospitalier Régional Universitaire (CHRU) de Nancy, a leading academic hospital in the Grand Est… read morelast_img read more

Cyta unions will take measures if privatisation back on the table

first_imgBy Evie AndreouTwo unions representing workers from the semi-state telecoms company Cyta warned of measures on Friday should a cabinet decision for the privatisation of the utility be implemented.In a written statement, unions Sidikek- PEO warned that “workers, political forces and civil society will react and fight once again to prevent what has been planned, to protect public interest.”The Akel affiliated unions were referring to statements earlier in the day by Finance Minister, Harris Georgiades, who told state-radio CyBC that the government was intending to try to find a majority in the parliament to pass its revised proposal for a partial privatisation of Cyta, as part of a new reform attempt.An earlier attempt made months before Cyprus completed its cash-for-reform programme ahead of the 2016 parliamentary elections, was quickly abandoned when the government met the expected political opposition.The new effort which comes more than six months after the re-election of President Nicos Anastasiades, include the appointment of new judges, a revision of a bundle of bills overhauling human resource which the parliament rejected almost two years ago and e-governance.“The second government proposal (on Cyta) is at the parliament for some months now,” Georgiades said. “What differentiates this proposal from the initial one is that the government maintains the majority shareholding. Cyta is transformed into a company and a strategic investor will be attracted who will receive both a shareholding and mainly the management.”The minister said that the privatisation of Cyta is not required to improve public finances but instead to protect the company which has been continuously losing its market share over the past 14 years to competitors amid “rapidly changing technology.”The unions said that the Anastasiades administration’s “machinations” had been averted, albeit temporarily, when the government and the Troika of lenders had made a priority the privatisation of Cyta and created a privatisation unit. The government at the time had given millions for studies and consultants, they said, and “submitted a bill that effectively provided for the selling off of Cyta.”The Anastasiades administration, the unions said, found in 2013 when it came to power an organisation worth billion with profits to the tune of €80m to €90m per year and since then it has been systematically working at undermining Cyta’s business value “to prepare the ground for a comeback.” Today, they said, the government reinstated the implementation of the dogmatic position for the privatisation of Cyta at any cost.The decision for a partial privatisation of Cyta, they said, is nothing but a rehash of the initial proposal.You May LikeWomanPretty.comHere Are 6 Simple Exercises to Lose Thigh Fat FastWomanPretty.comUndowww.joy.landStart playing free online games!www.joy.landUndoEchobeatWhy Everybody In California Is Snapping Up These New Earphones?EchobeatUndo Film review: Child’s Play ***UndoModi versus Wild: Indian PM to join Bear Grylls in wildernessUndoRouhani hopes British PM Johnson’s “familiarity” with Iran will help improve relationsUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
