Here it is! https://t.co/T3oWyZw3DL- sachin tendulkar (@sachin_rt) April 13, 2017Answering the questions from the media, Sachin Tendulkar said, “This film has helped me relive the important moments of my life through its making! I remain a private person but realised that there is much I have not revealed or spoken about, to those who have been instrumental to my life and career, especially my fans. I hope the film will be yet another avenue for fans who have showered their love and blessings on me, to cherish the journey that we undertook together for over 24 years.” Ravi Bhagchandka, the producer said, “Making this movie has been my pilgrimage! I personally am a huge fan of Sachin and it was Sachin who was my inspiration when I used to play cricket. My company’s name, 200NOTOUT is also dedicated to his highest score in ODIs. Sachin is dearly loved by all Indians as well by cricket fans all around the world. He has been an idol for three generations of cricket fans and continues to inspire! This film will give his fans who have watched his cricketing feats on the television screen, the opportunity to see Sachin on the big movie screen!”.@sachin_rt shares some of his best memories with the audience at the #SachinLaunch event! pic.twitter.com/qnxNNyO9TQadvertisement- Sachin The Film (@SachinTheFilm) April 13, 2017The trailer gave the eager audience a hint of what the film has in store for Sachin’s fans. With glimpses of key scenes from the film showing moments of cricketing glory, personal moments, unseen footage from the dressing room and much more, the film promises to be every Sachin fan’s dream come true.James Erskine, award-winning director of a number of international films on sports, took the audience through the making of the film. He said, “Directing the film was a wonderful experience! Coming from the UK, I knew that Sachin was a cricketing legend but even then, it was an eye-opener to see the adoration and respect that Sachin commands across the globe. Scripting his journey for the big screen involved interacting with Sachin, his family, his teammates as well as players from rival teams and others. Sachin is both gracious, and a perfectionist, and being able to make this film for the Indian people and many more across the globe was a true honour.”Master blaster @sachin_rt takes the stage at the #SachinTrailer event! pic.twitter.com/GXyUwMVbfh- Sachin The Film (@SachinTheFilm) April 13, 2017Dr Shrikant Bhasi, Founder and Chairman, Carnival Group and co-producer of the film said, “We are glad and extremely proud to be a part of India’s first sports flim, and we are confident on the success of project Sachin: A Billion Dream. I’ve always been keen to the idea of bringing the marvel of Sachin on the silver screen with the legend itself making his big debut. Carnival Cinemas will make sure that the movie reaches audience all across the country across all strata, as Sachin is a phenomenon everywhere.” He further adds, “Carnival Motion Pictures intends to begin its innings in mainline content generation and distribution, with this being an amazing start. There are many more interesting projects in pipeline that we will announce soon in the next few weeks.”advertisementlast_img read more

Dutee clinches silver in 100m dash

first_imgJakarta, Aug 26 (PTI) Star Indian sprinter Dutee Chand clinched a silver in women’s 100m dash in the 18th Asian Games to win the country’s first medal in 20 years in this event here today. Running in lane number 7, Dutte clocked 11.32 seconds, a tad below her national record of 11.29 seconds. Odiong Edidiong of Bahrain won the gold in 11.30 while Wei Yongli of China took the bronze in 11.33 in a close finish. The 22-year-old from Odisha was taking part in his first Asian Games. She was suspended by the IAAF in 2014 under its hyperandrogenism policy but she filed an appealed before the Court of Arbitration for Sports and won it. Recently, under a revised rule of the IAAF, Dutee was left outside the purview of the hyperandrogenism policy which gave her liberty to pursue her career. India’s last medal in this event was the bronze won by Rachita Mistry in 1998 Asian Games. PTI PDS PDSPDSlast_img read more

PROCESS WELL UNDERWAY FOR UNITARY MODEL OF MANAGMENT

first_imgAs you are aware the Australian Touch Association is in the process of progressing the national unitary management model in accordance with the recommendations contained within the Shilbury report. It is the view of the ATA that the time frames set down by the working committee (State and National CEO’s and the General committee) will be met and these time frames are broadly indicated in the attachments which are inclusive of the Schedule for sub Committees and a Power Point presentation for use by Members Please find here an Adobe picture file and also a Power Point presentation on the progress of the Unitary Model. ADOBE PICTURE OF THE UNITARY MODEL PROGRESS POWERPOINT PRESENTATION OF THE UNITARY MODEL PROGRESS Please find below the first newsletter on the progress of the unitary model: UNITARY MODEL NEWSLETTER Positive effects: * The positive effects of this management model are many, to highlight the obvious: * Strength drawn from economies of scale; * Consistent delivery of services; * Better informed Touch Community; * Better adaptation of resources; * Improved delivery of services to affiliates; * Elimination and or reduction of duplication. The set up: As this advancement program is critical to the sport the ATA has taken a “we must get it right” view and in support of this five sub committees have been formed, they are: * Governance * Finance * Human resources * Business Principles Strategic planning The committee memberships have been designed to obtain a valuable cross section of thoughts ideas and processes from a wide range of the sports volunteers and paid personnel from every area in Australia. Tasks at hand for each committee and the members of each are detailed below GOVERNANCE: Ken Willett (Qld) Chairperson (04) 1204-5455 ken.willett@racq.com.au John Howard (NSW) Bruce Ainslie (SA) Graeme Murphy (ACT) Marion Murphy (SA) The tasks facing this committee are: * Draft Constitution consultation and recommendations * Draft Standing Orders for Advisory Committees * Investigate changes needed at local level to ensure direct affiliation. * Review and Define ATA Board Responsibilities and roles * Define delegations and limitations of ATA Board and CEO FINANCE: Jeremy Sorenson Chair person (WA) Chairperson (08) 9387-8279 jeremy@touchwest.com Lyn Dunn (ATA) Darren Ball (SA) Tony Doyle (NSW) Karen Groves (ACT) Paul Eggers (Queensland) The tasks facing this committee are: * Cash Collection procedures * Expenditure Procedures * Chart of accounts * Risk Management Guidelines * Financial Reporting system identified HUMAN RESOURCES: Peter Topp Chairperson(ATA) 0262852703 ptopp@austouch.com.au Jasmin Reik (SA) Sandra Gad (External consultant) ATA Board Member The tasks facing this committee are Define managerial Hierarchy: * Who reports to Whom * Determine responsibilities * Develop Organisational Chart Staff Management: * Document induction process * Define Salary Structure * Develop Employment Process inclusive of EBA’s and or contracts * Plan for retention of current and recruitment of Staff (CB’s Regions and ATA) * Plan any other policies and standards required BUSINESS PRINCIPLES: Col Maguire Chairperson (SA) 0883733222 cmaguire@internode.on.net Andrew Bar (Qld) Miles Davine (Vic) Isobel Appo (NT) Bill Ker (ATA) Jon Pratt (ATA) Dean Russell (NSW) Consultant (to be identified) The tasks facing this committee are: * Communication – vertical and lateral methods and protocols * IT Infrastructure, Management and Policy * Operating Rules and Procedures * Customer Service Principals STRATEGIC PLANNING: ATA Board Peter Topp Bill Ker The tasks facing this committee are: Integrate “National Development Plan (June 2004) the Strategic Plan and the Shilbury Report change management process into a new Strategic Plan Where Are We Now? All committees have commenced their contact and discussions will commence within the week. The strategic plan for the next 18 months will be put to the Australian Sports Commission on February 17 and this will be inclusive of the current outstanding strategic directional matters combined with the Game Development Plan for the development area and the actions required to introduce and implement the management audit unitary model. A new schedule for sub committees has been completed, this document is a basic macro overview of the expected timelines required to successfully implement change by July 1 2005. Communication with State Government funding agencies has commenced especially aimed at the funding of activities within State Boundaries by a National Organisation as distinct to an Incorporated State Body. The ATA Legal Advisor has supplied a detailed information sheet on the winding up procedures needed for each State and Territory, ACT sample given at the end of this document. The ATA is in the process of appointing a new CEO (due to the retirement from the position of the current CEO) and once that is in place the employment of a senior member to the ATA (either a Member Services Manger of a Chief Financial Officer) will be undertaken. This is supporting the new ATA Office Structure as recommended in the Shilbury Report WHAT CAN YOU DO? As this is a critical time for the committees it is imperative that the chair of each committee is contactable. With that in mind I encourage any Touch participant to make contact and pass on their thoughts and ideas to these committees. One major change to the relationships between States, Regions and local associations is that of membership. Under the new constitution the ATA members (Legal Owners) will be the Local Touch Associations which is a major organisational change. The local player now has a critical role in the direction of the sport. This will give local associations a direct communication pathway to the national organisation. In saying this it has been recognised that local associations should contribute to these formative steps, after all the new members should be involved at this level as the outcomes will be inclusive of their ideas .We need your assistance especially with the sub committees work over the next 6 weeks. The Human Resource Committee needs a wider consultation base therefore we are looking for a couple more committee members preferably with experience in this area. For contact to the chairperson of each committee please refer to the contact numbers next to their names or alternatively contact the ATA on 1800 654 951 (free call) Australian Touch Association PO Box 9078 w Deakin, AC 2600 Email: billker@austouch.com.au Web site: http://www.austouch.com.aulast_img read more

Senior UN health official refutes accusations of inflating risk of H1N1 flu

The top United Nations flu official today rejected allegations that the World Health Organization (WHO) exaggerated the severity of the H1N1 influenza pandemic under pressure from business interests.“Let me state clearly for the record. The influenza pandemic policies and responses recommended and taken by WHO were not improperly influenced by the pharmaceutical industry,” WHO Special Adviser on Pandemic Influenza Keiji Fukuda told a hearing at the Council of Europe. Dr. Fukuda told the 2009 H1N1 pandemic inquiry that WHO takes its role of providing independent advice to its 193 Member States very seriously, and has in place measures to protect itself from improper influences.After the agency received reports of the new human strain of the virus in April last year, laboratory testing confirmed that existing antibodies to the current human H1N1 viruses did not react to the new form, underscoring its potential to cause a pandemic.“The most important information was when investigations indicated that this new virus was causing community outbreaks with person to person spread,” Dr. Fukuda told the Strasbourg-based Council. “In Mexico, early outbreaks included deaths and severe respiratory illnesses requiring ventilators among previously healthy young people,” he added. “WHO took decisive actions in accordance with the International Health Regulations but did not announce the start of a pandemic until 11 June 2009 when the updated pandemic criteria were met.”Stressing that the new virus spread with unprecedented speed, reaching 120 countries and territories in around eight weeks, Dr. Fukuda stated that cases have now been reported in virtually all countries.“Numerous safeguards are in place to manage conflicts of interest or perceived conflicts of interest among members of WHO advisory groups and expert committees,” he told the Council of Europe, which is tasked with protecting human rights, among other responsibilities.With more than 14,000 laboratory-confirmed deaths reported to date, Dr. Fukuda warned that the pandemic is not over, adding that it would be misleading to compare this number with figures from seasonal influenza. “This is like comparing apples with oranges,” he said. Deaths from seasonal flu are based on statistical models whereas the deaths from the pandemic were confirmed one-by-one through laboratory tests and are much lower than the true number of total fatalities.“The labelling of the pandemic as ‘fake’ is to ignore recent history and science and to trivialize the deaths of over 14,000 people and the many additional serious illnesses experienced by others,” he concluded. 26 January 2010The top United Nations flu official today rejected allegations that the World Health Organization (WHO) exaggerated the severity of the H1N1 influenza pandemic under pressure from business interests. read more

The findings of that study was presented to the representatives of the EU.Government has been in talks with United Kingdom, since the ban came into effect in 2015, to have it reversed.Greenheart exports to the UK went from US$3.2 million in 2014 to US$1million in 2015.Ever since the ban came into effect, the Guyana Manufacturing and Services Association (GMSA) labelled it “unfair” and called for a review.It was pointed out by the GMSA that given that the markets for tropical forest products were declining and proving challenging: “Incorrect labelling of our forest management practices in this negative way can only be detrimental to the future lives and livelihoods of the 25,000 people directly employed in this industry.”The International Tropical Timber Organisation (ITTO) had identified Guyana as one of only six tropical forest-producing countries in the world practising sustainable forestry management at the forest-concession level. read more

Saving Victorias Greek clubs

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram As the population ages, it’s no secret that many of Australia’s Greek community associations are struggling to keep numbers up and maintain their relevance among younger generations. But John Vithoulkas, treasurer of Melbourne’s Olympian Society, is trying to change that.“I was looking to give back a little bit to the Greek community, so I joined the Olympian Society maybe a couple of years ago. But then the question was raised of why we don’t have any young people,” he tells Neos Kosmos.In a forum held earlier this year to help address the matter, the 36-year-old says it became apparent that while the first generation of Greek Australians wanted to meet up based on their former geographical location in Greece, second, third and fourth generation Greek Australians are keen to keep things local, and gather with other Greeks based on where they live in Australia.“All the clubs are organised based on Greek geographic location, but people such as myself, I’ve got a Pontian friend, a Cretan friend; we don’t say ‘you’re Cretan I don’t hang around with you’,” he explains.“We think it applied really well to them, but doesn’t really apply to Greeks who have been born and raised here who speak English.”In response to this discovery, Mr Vithoulkas is taking the next step in Melbourne’s north, organising a meeting for representatives from each Greek club in the area to come together (there are 55 on the north side alone), meet one another, and discuss the future.“As a base short-term thing, we want the clubs from the northern suburbs to know each other, because at the moment every club sort of organises its own things and no one knows what any other club is doing,” he tells.What the forum also concluded, sadly, was that if you’re not already a member of a club and want to find out about an event, you’d be hard pressed to find the details if not listed in a community paper.“So what I’d like is some sort of coordination for the clubs to just know each other and sort of have one page, one Facebook page, where events would go up and we could have at least awareness of what each club is doing.”If all goes well with the meeting, Mr Vithoulkas’ long-term vision is for the groups to work towards greater synergy, but he admits that “it sort of depends on how the clubs feel about it”. “If you can get everyone thinking about it together, there might be a good idea about how to attract people. Possibly in the future there might be some key locations and you do things together. Although I can’t really say that, because it’s not my club, I think that’s the way it’ll go eventually,” he says.Other ideas for attracting younger members included thinking beyond the annual dinner dance to other activities such as Greek storytime for kids to attract young families, which commenced last month, as well as cooking classes.“The xorous (dances) were probably for people who only spoke Greek and felt marginalised and it was a safe place for them. “That’s all well and good, and I’m happy for them to keep doing that. But if the kids and grandkids aren’t doing anything, then within a generation you lose that Greekness and you lose that whole aspect to your identity, which is quite rich.”The meeting for the Greek clubs of Melbourne’s north will take place on Tuesday 26 July at Olympians House, 317 Victoria Rd, Thornbury, VIC at 7.00 pm.

Machine Learning Translates Japanese Retro Games In Real Time

first_imgStay on target If you want to experience the whole breadth of video game history, not just the narrow slice that publishers are willing to sell you on a given day, chances are you’re using emulators. Retro consoles are cool and all, but emulators give you even more control as to what classic blasts for the past you can (legally) play on your PC.Emulators can even offer modern conveniences those old games lacked like online functionality or generous save states. And now a nifty new 1.7.8 update to RetroArch (coming soon to Steam) uses machine learning to translate Japanese console and arcade video games in real time. Check it out!As reported by Kotaku, the feature is called AI Service and offers several different translation tools. It can pause the game and display English subtitles for the Japanese text. Or it can use a text-to-speech program to read the text to you. It even works across multiple languages in both directions.Translation handled by an algorithm rather than a human is never going to be 100 percent. But considering the hilariously bad translation work of many classic games you probably won’t even tell the difference. And even just making obscure foreign games, games that never made it overseas, more legible to a wider audience furthers the goal of games preservation that emulators are so useful for.For more on retro games check out the upcoming throwback consoles based on the Sega Genesis and the TurboGrafx-16.

Oregon SW Washington head for Round 2 of snowfall

first_imgPORTLAND — A second winter storm in two days is bearing down on Oregon and southwestern Washington, this one topped with ice that could make highways more treacherous in some areas and knock out electricity.Snowfall starting late in the morning Friday will be widespread, dropping a foot or more in mountainous parts of Southern Oregon and 2 to 8 inches in Western Oregon valleys that got slammed Thursday, the National Weather Service said.The snow is expected to turn to freezing rain Friday night and Saturday in many areas, especially the southern and central Willamette Valley and the Pacific coast.That will turn roadways icy and increase the possibility of power lines drooping and falling, resulting in outages, forecasters warned.The first storm dropped more than a foot of snow on parts of the Pacific Northwest and left one person dead in a massive Interstate 5 pileup in southwest Washington. It caused multiple other wrecks and closed schools and offices.Many school districts in the region canceled Friday’s classes as well.The snowstorm also caused a string of multiple car crashes on I-5 near Albany, Ore., essentially closing the highway there for five hours, the Oregon Transportation Department said.last_img read more

Amazon Echo Show 5 vs Google Nest Hub Revenge of Alexa

first_img $229 Amazon Echo Show The Echo Show 5 debuts Amazon’s new Alexa features put more emphasis on privacy 1 Aug 30 • Battling bot vacs: iRobot Roomba S9+ vs Neato Botvac D7 Connected Share your voice We’ll seeAlexa’s new privacy hub is a nice touch — a spot to control and manage your data. Google is rolling out something similar for Google Assistant — a “You” tab which will house all of your privacy settings. It’s nice seeing both companies make an effort on this front, but it remains to be seen which will do it better. I recommend the Nest Hub over the earlier iterations of the Amazon Echo Show for almost everybody interested in a smart display. The Show has been good enough for those already committed to Alexa, but the Nest Hub is generally a better device. At the very least, the Echo Show 5 could muddy that recommendation down to finer personal preferences as far as what you’re looking for in an entry level smart display. If the Show 5 surprises me and beats the Nest Hub in a couple of categories where it’s still the underdog, it could come out ahead.  Now playing: Watch this: Smart displays let Amazon, Facebook, Google show you answers to your questions Nest Alexa Amazon Google Lenovo 4:05 $229 Crutchfield See it Dell Comment The Echo Show 5 looks primed to battle the Google Nest Hub for best entry level smart display.  Amazon I honestly love the rivalry between Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant. The two tech giants behind those digital assistants frequently trade blows in the form of new features. Google had to play catch-up for awhile as Amazon and the Echo came to market first, but then Google pulled out ahead in the the newer smart display category with the success of its lower cost Nest Hub over Amazon’s clunky first attempt with the original Echo Show. Finally, with the Amazon Echo Show 5, Amazon strikes back.Read more: The Amazon Echo Show 5 is Alexa’s best smart displayThe new $90 Echo Show 5 gives Amazon an entry-level smart display that costs even less than the $130 Google Nest Hub (formerly called the Google Home Hub). A lot of its announced features look to be specifically aimed to counter the strengths of the Nest Hub. The approach makes sense. In a head-to-head post pitting the Nest Hub against the current $230 Echo Show, we called the Nest Hub the easy winner. 14 Photos See It $229 CNET may get a commission from retail offers. See Itcenter_img reading • Amazon Echo Show 5 vs. Google Nest Hub — Revenge of Alexa Best Buy Review • The Amazon Echo Show is back and better than before CNET Smart Home News • Grab a 1st-gen Amazon Echo Show for $70 Google doubled down on those strengths when it announced a new, bigger and smarter display called the Google Nest Hub Max earlier this month. The Max is $230 and due out later this summer. The Echo Show 5 took the opposite approach, going smaller and cheaper and trying to combine the coolest features of the current Nest Hub with the upcoming $80 Lenovo Smart Clock — a similar trimmed down smart display with Google Assistant. The Echo Show 5 will start shipping next month and could be the entry-level smart display to beat, but taking the Nest Hub off of that perch won’t be easy. Below, we’ll look at how it stacks up favorably and where it could still fall short. Obviously, we won’t know for sure which device is better until we can test the Show 5, but the announced features give us a pretty good indication. echo-show-5-bedroomThe Echo Show 5 has a cool sunrise alarm feature.  Amazon How the Echo Show 5 could beat the Nest Hub:The $90 price — That’s nicely positioned between the $130 Nest Hub and the $80 Lenovo Smart Clock. The Nest Hub is often on sale, but the Echo Show 5 combines many of the unique features of the Smart Clock and the Nest Hub to potentially offer the best of both worlds for a competitive price. Sunrise alarms — Set an alarm on the Show 5, and the screen will naturally brighten as it gets close to your wake-up time to ease you out of your sleep. I really liked similar features when I tested alarms earlier this year. The Lenovo Smart Clock has this option, but the Nest Hub doesn’t. The Echo Show 5 can also play videos. The Nest Hub can do this, but the Lenovo Smart Clock can’t.An HD Cam — Neither the Nest Hub nor the Lenovo Smart Clock has a video camera; the Echo Show 5 does. The Nest Hub Max will, but that’s much more expensive. The absence of a camera on the Nest Hub and the Lenovo clock are part of their appeal for people with privacy concerns. Amazon addresses that in the Show with a physical camera shutter, as well as a dedicated button that will disconnect both the camera and the microphone.More compatible smart home cams — You can use the Echo Show 5 to check on your Arlo baby monitor and chat with your Ring video doorbell.  Google’s products can currently only show footage from Nest cams.More options for video calls — The Echo Show 5 can directly call other Amazon devices or the Amazon app on someone’s phone. You can also start a video call using Skype. The Nest Hub surprisingly does allow you to make video calls — the recipient just won’t be able to see you since it doesn’t have a camera. However, you’re limited to the first party video chat app Google Duo. Delete recordings with a voice command — Perhaps the coolest new feature for the Show 5, especially for those with privacy concerns, you can give a voice command to delete all of your commands for the day. Amazon’s also working on a feature to erase the last thing you said with a command. You can delete commands in the Google Home app, but not with your voice. google-home-hub-cooking-step-by-stepThe Nest Hub is great at walking you through recipes.  Brian Bennett/CNET How the Nest Hub should still be better than the Show 5:YouTube — Amazon announced a variety of ways you can watch videos on the Show 5, but nothing’s better for the quick videos ideal for a small screen than the Google owned YouTube. The Nest Hub has access, the Echo Show 5 doesn’t. How To content — The Show 5 will be able to play videos from wikiHow, which should make it better at walking you through any number of tasks. I’m unimpressed. Again, Google has YouTube with a wealth of How To videos and Google is rolling out a program that should make watching them on a smart display more interactive. Smart home controls — Amazon is introducing better smart home controls for smart displays along with the Show 5. You’ll be able to control devices in more detail and see an overview of your whole home in groups. The Nest Hub has done this since launch and Google’s control panel clearly organizes your smart home gadgets in a helpful manner. We’ll see what the software is like once we get our hands on an Echo Show 5, but I’m skeptical that Amazon will overtake Google here as the Google Home app still offers a better overview than the Amazon Alexa app. Looking at family pictures — The Nest Hub is a great gadget for looking at family photos. Google can curate an album for you and the adaptive brightness of the screen makes every picture look great. They genuinely look like physical photos in a frame and Google can scroll through these pics as your screensaver. The Show 5 will have similar functionality and include photos from Facebook, which is a nice perk. You have to use Google Photos for the Nest Hub. Amazon even talked about better adaptive brightness, but the Nest Hub is great at this, so even if the Show 5 improves over the current Echo Show, I’d bet it still won’t be as good as the Nest Hub as the Nest Hub actually adapts both the brightness and the warmth of the picture to match the room. A bigger screen — The Nest Hub has a 7-inch screen versus 5.5 inches for the Show 5. One of the advantages of the current Show over the Nest Hub was screen size and sound quality. The Show 5 will definitely lose the first and might lose the second advantage too with a significantly smaller body. No cam — I put having a cam as an advantage for the Show 5, and it is, for some people. The physical shutter is a nice touch, but if you’re really worried about privacy, you might be more comfortable with the Nest Hub or the Lenovo Smart clock, both of which forgo the camera entirely. Recipes — The Nest Hub offers really helpful step-by-step recipe guides. The Amazon Echo Show has similar functionality, but it’s not as robust. I haven’t seen any indication that the Echo Show 5 will catch up here.

Vucomp’s U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-cleared M-Vu Breast Density automatically assesses breast density, providing consistent and accurate measurements calibrated to a panel of 13 expert radiologists.M-Vu Breast Density evaluates mammograms in much the same manner as experienced radiologists do: by analyzing the structure and texture of the tissue, rather than simply estimating total fibroglandular volume. This exclusive approach using appearance-based analysis provides useful adjunctive information. The resulting M-Vu Breast Density category is analogous to the BI-RADS density category, which reflects the degree to which the mammographic image exhibits a breast pattern that could camouflage cancer.For physicians, this means fast and consistent assessments. For patients, it means peace of mind.”We find M-Vu Breast Density very beneficial in providing consistent accurate breast density reads across our practice,” said Christine A. J. Granfield, M.D. Medical Director for Breast Imaging, Baptist Health. “While we already were providing the breast density estimate in the dictated report, it is reassuring to know we are now reporting this information accurately to the primary physician, which in turn can effect their patient management.”M-Vu Breast Density is compatible with mammography systems of Carestream, Fujifilm, GE, Giotto, Hologic, Konica Minolta, Philips, Planmed and Siemens. The tower or rack server communicates over Ethernet network. The product can be combined with the M-Vu CAD system for a comprehensive set of tools to help radiologists find breast cancer earlier, and Vucomp resources are ready and available to ensure an efficient installation.For more information: www.vucomp.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Breast Biopsy Systems | July 24, 2019 Fujifilm Releases Tomosynthesis Biopsy Option for Aspire Cristalle Mammography System Fujifilm Medical Systems U.S.A.

UBS Tries Again to Block FHFA Lawsuit

first_img After losing a previous bid earlier this year, “”UBS””:http://www.ubs.com/us/en.html is making another attempt to shut down a lawsuit from the “”Federal Housing Finance Agency””:http://www.fhfa.gov/ (FHFA), “”Bloomberg””:http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2012-11-26/ubs-leads-wall-street-bid-to-halt-fhfa-mortgage-bond-suit.html reports.[IMAGE]The bank is one of a number of defendants facing suits from the FHFA over the sales of mortgage-backed securities (MBS) to “”Fannie Mae””:http://www.fanniemae.com/portal/index.html and “”Freddie Mac””:http://www.freddiemac.com/. The securities cost the GSEs billions of dollars when they collapsed during the housing crash. The FHFA alleges the banks that sold the securities misrepresented the underwriting and stability of the loans they contained.In its argument to dismiss, UBS says the FHFA took too long to act on its claims, which expired in 2010. U.S. The agency first brought claims against UBS in 2011.District Judge Denise Cote ruled against UBS’ motion to dismiss in May, saying the law that established the FHFA gives it three years from the start of its conservatorship to pursue losses over the allegedly misrepresented securities. Since that time, Cote has rejected motions to dismiss from several other banks under fire from the FHFA, including “”JPMorgan Chase””:https://themreport.com/articles/jpmorgan-chase-fails-in-bid-to-dismiss-fhfa-suit-2012-11-06, “”Goldman Sachs, Deutsche Bank””:https://themreport.com/articles/fhfa-suits-against-deutsche-bank-goldman-sachs-to-go-on-2012-11-13, and Bank of America’s “”Merrill Lynch””:https://themreport.com/articles/judge-refuses-to-dismiss-fhfa-suit-against-merrill-lynch-2012-11-09 unit.While UBS may have lost that battle, it hasn’t bowed out of the war yet. The bank argued before the U.S. Court of Appeals in Manhattan on Monday, once again stressing that the lawsuit may open itself and other banks up to claims that have otherwise expired.In a brief filed with the appeals court, UBS calls the FHFA’s suit “”a belated attempt by the two largest and most sophisticated issuers and purchasers of MBS in the world to shift blame for losses they suffered as a result of the nationwide housing crisis in which they played a critical role.””In its response, the FHFA argued that placing an expiration date on the agency’s claims would limit its ability to pursue losses brought on the GSEs and taxpayers.

Millennials Will Migrate to UpandComing Housing Markets in 2016

first_img December 8, 2015 670 Views America’s most-talked about generation—millennials—are expected to impact the housing market heavily in 2016. As home prices in popular metros rise and affordability problems persist, this generation is expected to weigh other options in the near future.With a force reaching 43.5 million, the millennial generation (aged 25 to 34) occupies 13.6 percent of the entire population. In addition, this generation makes up 30 percent of the current population of exiting-home buyers, a recent report from Realtor.com showed. “In 2016, millennials have the power to remake the real estate landscape wherever they choose to settle,” the report stated.According to Realtor.com, millennials are not as drawn to popular metros such as New York City, New York and Los Angeles, California because they cannot afford to live in these areas.As an alternative to pricier metros, the report notes that “shrewd young home buyers are increasingly turning to cities that are relatively affordable and have lots of jobs and maybe even a trendy atmosphere all their own.”Atlanta, Georgia was named first on the list in 2016 with a median list price $234,000 and a 13.6 percent share of millennials. This city’s hip-hop scene, nightlife, and job opportunities landed it first on list of top places for millennials to live, but the affordable housing is the main attraction, the report said.Second on millennials’ list in 2016 is Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania with a median list price at $149,000 and a 12.3 percent share of millennials.”Low housing costs, good public transportation, cool clubs, a hopping night life, and a revitalized waterfront area all add up to an attractive destination for the young’uns,” the report explained.”In Memphis, Tennessee, third on the list of hot markets in 2016, has a median list price of $164,000 and a high population of millennials at 13.5 percent.”The market’s housing affordability and low-cost of living that are attracting millennials and encouraging them to buy—the share of older millennial households is 7 percent higher than the national average,” Realtor.com said.Realtor.com also identified markets where millennials are not likely to buy in 2016. These markets include Jacksonville, Florida; Phoenix, Arizona; Port St. Lucie, Florida; Spokane, Washington; and Stockton, California.Click here to view the full report. in Daily Dose, Data, Headlines, Market Studies, News, Origination Housing Markets Millennials Realtor.com 2015-12-08 Staff Writercenter_img Millennials Will Migrate to Up-and-Coming Housing Markets in 2016 Sharelast_img read more

Cleveland Ohio And Rio De Janeiro Brazil – Repor

first_imgCleveland, Ohio And Rio De Janeiro, Brazil – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazineFlight Options, LLC, the second-largest fractional jet company in the U.S, has entered into a three-year, USD$167 million financing agreement with Banco Nacional de Desenvolvimento Econômico e Social (BNDES) to finance the company’s purchase of Embraer Phenom 300® jet aircraft. The first-of-its-kind loan agreement between BNDES and a fractional jet operator will be guaranteed by the Brazilian Ministry of Finance, advised by the Brazilian Export Credit Insurance Agency (SBCE).“We are pleased to enter into this landmark agreement with BNDES to help underwrite the acquisition of new Embraer Phenom 300 jet aircraft,” said Michael Silvestro, Flight Options Chief Executive Officer. “This financing agreement underscores the bank’s confidence in our financial stability, operating strength and future prospects. Demand from our private jet Owners and Members continues to improve, and the BNDES financing will facilitate our owners’ access to this extraordinary aircraft.”In 2007, Flight Options placed an order for one hundred Phenom 300 business jets, plus an option to purchase 50 more. The total value of the order exceeds $1.2 billion, at the Phenom 300’s current list price. The company began taking delivery of the aircraft in May 2010 and currently has eight Phenom 300 jets in service. Flight Options anticipates having 15 Phenom 300 jets in operation by the end of 2011.“The fractional jet ownership model is rebounding from the global economic downturn, and by extending funding to this sector, Brazil’s main long-term credit provider will help support an emerging recovery in corporate aviation and stimulate demand for a world-class aircraft,” said Kenneth Ricci, Chairman of Flight Options.Earlier this year, Flight Options announced a 467 percent increase in fractional jet sales and a 46 percent increase in JetPASS® card sales during the first quarter of 2011, compared to the year-ago quarter. The company also announced that fractional utilization, which measures how actively the company’s owner/members are utilizing their shares, was up eight percent compared to the 2010 first quarter, while JetPASS flight revenue hours rose 35 percent. In response, Flight Options has been recalling furloughed pilots, re-opening maintenance centers and investing in customer service and operations.“Flight Options is a financially sound, well-run fractional jet operator with a sophisticated clientele – the perfect company to make the best use of an advanced plane such as the Phenom 300,” added Vitor Sawczuk, Head of Business Underwriting for SBCE. “We believe the Phenom 300 is a game-changer for the light-jet category, and we are confident in Flight Options’ ability to help build this plane’s market share in the U.S.”The Phenom 300 has a clean-sheet jet aircraft design that combines a midsize-jet cabin, industry-leading passenger and cockpit technology with extremely low occupied hourly rates. It provides the greatest range in light-jet category, flying a distance of 2,298 statute miles at speeds up to 518 mph. It has a maximum cruising altitude of 45,000 feet and a spacious cabin designed in collaboration with BMW Group DesignworksUSA.“Flight Options has been a leader in developing new value programs for its owners and introducing new technology to the private jet fractional ownership business since its founding in 1998,” added Ricci. “Our ground-breaking agreement with BNDES extends that legacy of innovation, and we are confident that our loyal Owners and Members will derive significant benefits from this financing.”www.flightoptions.comlast_img read more
