Nissan slashes profit amid Ghosn scandal lagging sales

TOKYO — Nissan has lowered its profit forecast for the fiscal year through March as the Japanese automaker, contends with slowing sales and the fallout from the loss of its former chairman, Carlos Ghosn.Nissan Motor Co. said Wednesday it expects to post a 319 billion yen profit ($2.9 billion) for the fiscal year, marking a 22 per cent drop from its earlier 410 billion yen ($3.7 billion) profit forecast earlier.Nissan said the drop resulted from costs in the U.S. and falling sales due to “corporate issues.”Ghosn was arrested in November and is facing charges of underreporting his income and breach of trust. He was released on bail in March and is awaiting another court decision on bail after his re-arrest on April 4. He says he is innocent.The Associated Press read more

NBA Union Plans Grievance Over New Flopping Fines

Anyway, Howard said the only problem he had with the new rule was that punishing floppers after the fact isn’t going to change any of the outcomes on the floor during the game. The new punishment for flopping the NBA instituted is being met with resistance by the players union, which said it will file a grievance and unfair labor practices charge against the league over the disciplinary guidelines aimed at curtailing flopping.“The NBA is not permitted to unilaterally impose new economic discipline against the players without first bargaining with the union,” executive director Billy Hunter said in a statement.Earlier Wednesday, the NBA announced a fine schedule for flopping, the practice of tricking the official into calling a foul by exaggerating contract. Under the guidelines being challenged by the union, the league said players would receive a warning for the first flop, followed by fines of $5,000 for the second offense, $10,000 for the third, $15,000 for the fourth and $30,000 for the fifth. Beyond that, players would be subject to increased discipline at the league’s discretion, including higher fines and/or suspension.All punishments would be handed out after possible flops are reviewed on video after the gameHunter called the new rules “without precedent in our sport or any other sport,” and characterized the penalties as “a vague and arbitrary overreaction and overreach by the commissioner’s office.”NBA spokesman Tim Frank said, “Although we haven’t seen any filing from the Players Association, our adoption of an anti-flopping rule is fully consistent with our rights and obligations under the collective bargaining agreement and the law.”The move by the NBPA was expected and largely procedural. Union officials are not necessarily opposed to putting rules in place to curtail flopping, but are prepared to argue that monetary discipline cannot be imposed outside of the fine schedule for various offenses already contained in the collective bargaining agreement.Player reaction Wednesday was strongly in favor of the new flopping guidelines, however — at least at Lakers camp, where Kobe Bryant, Dwight Howard and Steve Nash all gave their approval for the concept, if not the execution.“I’d love to see it have an impact on the game itself,” Bryant said. “In international play, they give you a technical foul, a free throw and you get the ball back. I like the rule, though. Shameless flopping is just a chump move. We’re familiar with it, and Vlade [Divac] kind of pioneered it in the playoffs against me and Shaq.” Nash said it’s “good, actually, to try to keep the game honest and penalize guys for trying to trick the referees.” Moments later, he was accused by his own teammate of flopping in practice. “I drove down the lane today and I saw him and as I was going towards him, I passed the ball to Kobe and [Nash] kind of touched me and said, ‘Ahhhh!’ and fell on the ground,” Howard said. “That’s a flop. And coach called a charge on me, but he’s going to get fined by me and David Stern.” After Howard informed his new point guard of this, Nash replied, “There’s no videotape in here.” Good comeback, but it’s not clear whether this incident was an indictment of flopping or the new offense the Lakers are running. Shouldn’t Nash — not Dwight — be driving down the lane and passing to Kobe? “If guys are going to flop in a game, we’re going to get the foul called,” Howard said. “So the fine is not really going to help us in the game. It is what it is. I’ve never flopped. I don’t know how to flop. For the guys who do, this is good. They can’t do it as much and guys like me can be a little bit more physical and get away with it.” read more

Zelenovic makes trouble to Rojewski or Natek

As informed a week ago, the new SC Magdeburg right back will be Serbian NT member and Orlen Wisla Plock shooter, Nemanja Zelenovic. The 25 years-old lefthander will join his new team in DKB Bundesliga in summer 2016. His arrival will be also a departure time for one of two SC Magdeburg’s right back – Andreas Rojewski or Jure Natek. Contract of both players will expire at the end of season 2015/2016.The Polish and Slovenian lefthanders will have to fight for the position, but from the club expecting nothing but fully proffesional level:-There is nothing in life which could be eternal – said Steffen Stiebler, the secretary general of one of the most successful German teams.Zelenovic will stay in “Green” until 2018. ← Previous Story VIDEO: Lichtlein gets confused by Rune Dahmke magic Next Story → Mathieu Grebille to miss 6 months of season! andreas rojewskiJure NatekSC Magdeburg read more

Invisible key system unlocks doors with a hand gesture

first_imgRegardless of how quickly technology is advancing, the physical key seems to remain a part of our everyday lives. Many of us have multiple keys for accessing different parts of our homes, and while we no longer need to insert a key to open a car or office door, we still carry some form of fob or card for wireless locking/unlocking.At the 2011 Taipei International Invention Show, a so-called invisible key has been shown off and managed to win Gold in the Invention Awards during the four-day event. How do you make a key invisible but still capable of securing a lock, you may ask. By replacing the key with a hand gesture.What the inventor Tsai Yao-pin did was to take a hint from motion controllers like the Nintendo Wii uses, but create a system that can track the 3D movement of a hand rather than something held in the hand. His team of researchers, working out of the Technology and Science Institute of Northern Taiwan, developed a chip capable of performing such tracking.The user can setup a complex hand gesture only they know. Then, when they want to lock or unlock a door they place their hand in front of a sensor and carry out the gesture. Obviously some kind of gesture recording procedure is required first, but once done you can no longer forget or lose your key, you can only forget the gesture.The Gold Award has gone a long way towards confirming the invisible key is both clever and usable. Tsai Yao-pin believes it will be available commercially by the middle of 2012 as he already has interest from several companies.via Physorglast_img read more

An Arkansas Dentist Edited Himself Into Star Wars to Sell Root Canals

first_img Star Wars x Adidas Ultraboost Photos Have Leaked’Star Wars Pinball’ Has Your Favorite Brand in Ball Form Can we just take a minute to appreciate how great local commercials are? Free from the homogenizing influence of market research or technical training, these self-produced ads can be truly magical. There’s a wonderful homemade, B-movie charm you can’t really get anywhere else anymore. The best really go for it in a way that tells you so much more about the person than just the kind of business they run. That’s certainly the case in this ad from J.S. Abernathy Dental in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Clearly an old school “Star Wars” fan, Abernathy put himself into the final scenes of the first movie, and made them all about root canals. The result is something everyone needs to see right now.“Lasers aren’t just for X-Wings anymore,” Abernathy says before he uses an X-Wing to fire a projectile into the Death Star’s exhaust port, root canal of a tooth. He’s clearly super proud of that line, judging by its triumphant delivery in the ad and its presence in the YouTube description. No joke, there’s some seriously impressive editing here. Especially during the medal ceremony. Not only does he make Han Solo hold up his Before and After X-rays, he extends the final shot so he can get his entire spiel out before it cuts. The only problem? He steals the last line of the movie from Chewie. That’s just not cool.I’ve had this thing on repeat all morning. Every time I watch it, there’s something new to appreciate. There’s the awkward, almost Justin Roiland-like voice dub that opens it. The horrifying diagram that makes a root canal look like someone bombing your tooth. The wonderfully corny dismissal of the “old” tools of dentistry in favor of the miraculous new PIPS. And somehow, Abernathy manages to make that “bullseye womp rats” line a bit less annoyingly smug than when Luke says it.Please J.S. Abernathy, for your next commercial, keep the trilogy going. I want more tales of the world’s most patient Rebellion and their dedication to modern dentistry. Maybe the next one will be “The Empire Strikes Plaque?” “Retainer of the Jedi?” Let’s keep going with this. “The Phantom Molar,” “Attack of the Crowns,” “The Floss Awakens.” Let’s make these happen, J.S.

Researchers use nanoparticles to speed up or slow down angiogenesis

first_img( —Researchers at the University of Southampton in the U.K. have devised a means for using nanoparticles to cause angiogenesis (the growth of new blood vessels) to speed up or slow down. In their paper published in ACS Nano, the researchers describe how they coated gold nanoparticles with peptides to allow for altering the speed at which new blood vessels develop in specific locations in the body. More information: Manipulation of in Vitro Angiogenesis Using Peptide-Coated Gold Nanoparticles, Dorota Bartczak, Otto L. Muskens, Tilman Sanchez-Elsner, Antonios G. Kanaras, and Timothy M. Millar, ACS Nano Article ASAP. demonstrate the deliberate activation or inhibition of invitro angiogenesis using functional peptide coated gold nanoparticles. The peptides, anchored to oligo-ethylene glycol capped gold nanospheres, were designed to selectively interact with cell receptors responsible for activation or inhibition of angiogenesis. The functional particles are shown to influence significantly the extent and morphology of vascular structures, without causing toxicity. Mechanistic studies show that the nanoparticles have the ability to alter the balance between naturally secreted pro- and anti-angiogenic factors, under various biological conditions. Nanoparticle-induced control over angiogenesis opens up new directions in targeted drug delivery and therapy.via Nanotechweb This document is subject to copyright.

The development of new blood vessels is critical while wounds are healing. It’s also important in helping people recover from accidents or who have tissue damaged by disease. Speeding up angiogenesis can help to speed up recovery times. Sometimes however, angiogenesis can progress incorrectly resulting in the growth of tumors. In these instances, doctors would like to slow or stop the angiogenesis process. In this new effort, the research team has found a new way to accomplish both goals with one new treatment option.The new technique revolves around the use of nanoparticles—very small objects generally not found in nature. In this case, the particles created were made of gold. Because nanoparticles can so easily move around inside the body, the thinking was that nanoparticles could be used to deliver drugs to specific areas of the body where they are needed. In this case, the drugs were peptides that have been shown to speed up angiogenesis when appropriate and to slow the process when tumors have developed. The ability to deliver the drug only to areas where they are needed reduces side-effects.In order for angiogenesis to occur, endothelial cells must be activated by the presence of certain molecules engaging with receptor cells. Over time, researchers have developed various drugs to either stimulate or repress angiogenesis by activating the receptor cells or block them. Such drugs have only been useful for a short duration, however, and most often come with unwanted side effects. In this new effort, the team used nanoparticles to carry and deliver such drugs only to the parts of the body that needed them. They found they could target specific receptor cells that allow for focusing on different diseases. Specifically, they developed three types of peptides for delivery via nanoparticles: those that bind and promote cascade growth of blood vessels, those that block receptors cells from receiving signals, and those that serve as a control and do nothing. They report that they were successful in delivering all three types to target areas and that doing so caused the expected changes in angiogenesis rates.

Australian Regional Tourism calls for 2030 action plan

first_imgWhat will the tourism landscape look like in 2030? This is the question raised by the Australian Regional Tourism Networks, Chair, David Sheldon.At a recent ARTN Board meeting in Canberra attended by Tourism Minister Senator Richard Colbeck, Mr Sheldon raised the issue of setting 2030 tourism strategies, policies, plans, roles responsibilities and reporting criteria, a collaborative approach from both Industry and the Federal Government.“For too long now Industry has allowed Government to lead, we as an Industry need to take a greater leadership role and a 2030 transition path should be a section of policy development and delivery,” Mr Sheldon said.“Most of the time it’s Industry having a go at Government, no matter at what level. I believe Government does a far better job than we give credit. Just look around the globe and you will see how fortunate we as an Industry are.“With the success of the 2020 Tourism Plan heading towards the end of its cycle the challenge is to have the next decade ready for action. During 2017 there is a planned review of Tourism 2020 so the time is right to commence the process.“Our Prime Minister talks about innovation, here is an opportunity. As tourism gains momentum as a super sector economic driver, the Industry needs to prepare.“We will witness a quantum leap away from the metropolitan experiences within Australia to the diversity of regions. We need to look outside the square, source alternate funding opportunities, develop serious investment strategies, have a greater understanding of the digital economy and communications.“The value and experience of the destination Enabling infrastructure air, road, sea and rail strategies will become paramount for Australia’s regional dispersal to continue visitation growth. We mustn’t forget the most important enabling infrastructure, people, for delivery.“A re-energised strategy to encourage our domestic market to discover what’s in their own backyard. I know everyone’s excited about the current Chinese and other Asian opportunities of growth but will these markets still have the energy by 2030?”“We need a bipartisan, out of the election cycle, approach from Government and an Industry that is prepared to roll up its sleeves and do some hard yards instead of the continued catch cry ‘Please sir may I have some more?’,” Mr Sheldon concluded.
