Texas cancer centre ousts 3 over Chinese data theft concerns

HOUSTON — A prominent cancer centre in Houston says it has ousted three scientists whom federal authorities suggested are involved in Chinese efforts to steal American research.Peter Pisters, the president of MD Anderson Cancer Center, told the Houston Chronicle that the National Institutes of Health could withhold funding if the centre didn’t act. MD Anderson received $148 million in NIH grants last year.The three scientists haven’t been identified. The newspaper reports they’re Chinese.The agency wrote to the cancer centre last year detailing conflicts of interest and unreported foreign income by five faculty members, and gave it 30 days to respond.The dismissals come amid heightened concern in Washington, D.C., that foreign governments including China have been using students and visiting scholars to pilfer intellectual property from confidential grant applications.The Associated Press read more

Barrick says board changes in the works including succession plans for Munk

Barrick says board changes in the works including succession plans for Munk AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Barrick Gold, under pressure from shareholders seeking changes at the board level, signalled Friday that new leadership is coming, including succession plans for Peter Munk as chairman of the gold miner he founded.Munk, 86, had already indicated he was preparing to step down from the board, but in a filing with U.S. securities regulators Friday as part of a $3-billion share offering, the company was more explicit, suggesting changes would be in place by its next annual meeting.“The board is addressing the issues that have been raised with our directors, which include modification of the company’s executive compensation arrangements, the rejuvenation of the board through a combination of departures from the board, the addition of independent directors and succession in the chairman role at the company, consistent with Mr. Munk’s desire to retire as chairman of the board of directors, as previously indicated,” Barrick said in the filing.“The company’s intention is to update the market before year-end on these initiatives, with governance changes expected to take effect in conjunction with Barrick’s next annual meeting.”Barrick has been looking to strengthen its governance practices and add new independent directors to its board since its annual meeting in April when it was criticized for a $11.9-million signing bonus paid to co-chairman John Thornton that was part of a $17-million payment package.The company currently has seven independent directors on its 13-member board.Munk has been a lightning rod for criticism of the company and defended Thornton’s compensation at the annual meeting, comparing the bonus with the cost of six extra shovels for a mine.“I promise you that John will do more for you than six more shovels,” he told shareholders at the time.Mike Morris of U.S. investment manager Two Fish Management, which has pushed for changes at Barrick, said the comments by the company Friday were interesting, but added: “talk is cheap.”“It has always struck me as kind of this conceptual thing on an elongated timeline,” he said of Munk’s potential retirement.Morris said he believes a large activist investor could win support if it were to push for a dissident slate of directors at Barrick’s next annual meeting, but he hoped Barrick would make changes voluntarily.In Barrick’s 2012 annual report, Munk suggested the company was preparing for his eventual retirement with the appointment of Thornton as co-chairman and working to improve operations.“As we reposition the company to deliver against these objectives, it is also appropriate that we consider a path to new leadership at our board level,” Munk said in his letter to shareholders.Earlier this year, Barrick agreed to sell off its Barrick Energy subsidiary in a string of deals worth a total of $455 million and three high-cost mines in Western Australia to South Africa-based miner Gold Fields Ltd. for $300 million.The company (TSX:ABX), which has seen its shares fall more than 45 per cent this year, has struggled with problems at its Pascua-Lama project in South America and a falling price for gold this year.Last week, the gold miner suspended most of the work at Pascua-Lama and announced plans to raise US$3 billion in a massive share offering that will be used to repay debt. by The Canadian Press Posted Nov 8, 2013 10:38 am MDT read more

Fed to slow pace of monthly bond purchases by another 10B despite

by Martin Crutsinger, The Associated Press Posted Jan 29, 2014 12:14 pm MDT A television screen on the floor of the New York Stock Exchange shows the decision of the Federal Reserve, Wednesday, Jan. 29, 2014. The Federal Reserve says it will cut its monthly bond purchases by an additional $10 billion to $65 billion because of a strengthening U.S. economy. It’s doing so even though the prospect of reduced Fed stimulus and higher U.S. interest rates has rattled global markets. (AP Photo/Richard Drew) AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Fed to slow pace of monthly bond purchases by another $10B despite turmoil in emerging markets WASHINGTON – The Federal Reserve is pushing ahead with a plan to shrink its bond-buying program because of a strengthening U.S. economy. It’s doing so even though the prospect of reduced Fed stimulus and higher U.S. interest rates has rattled global markets.The Fed said it will cut its monthly bond purchases starting in February by $10 billion to $65 billion. It also reaffirmed its plan to keep short-term rates at record lows to try to reassure investors that it will keep supporting an economy that remains less than fully healthy.The decision by the Fed was announced in a statement Wednesday after Ben Bernanke’s final policy meeting. Bernanke will step down Friday after eight years as chairman and will be succeeded by Vice Chair Janet Yellen.Most economists expect that under Yellen, the Fed will announce a string of $10 billion monthly reductions in bond purchases at each meeting this year, concluding with a final $15 billion cut in December.Many global investors fear that reduced Fed bond buying will boost U.S. rates and cause investors to move money out of emerging markets and into the United States for higher returns. Currency values in emerging economies have fallen over that concern.In response, central banks in emerging economies, from India to Turkey to South Africa, have been acting to counter any damage from the Fed’s pullback and the prospect of higher U.S. rates: They’ve been raising their own rates. These central banks hope to control inflation, boost their flagging currencies and keep investors from fleeing.But so far, those currencies have continued to weaken.The Fed’s bond purchases have been intended to keep long-term borrowing rates low to spur spending and growth. Its decision Wednesday to continue paring purchases signals the Fed’s belief that the economy is showing consistent improvement. In its statement, it upgraded it assessment to say “growth in economic activity picked up in recent quarters.”Stocks fell after the Fed announced its decision. Bond prices rose slightly, and their yields dipped.The Dow Jones industrial average closed down 189 points, or 1.2 per cent. It had been down 127 points just before the Fed’s announcement at 2 p.m. Eastern time. Disappointing earnings from big U.S. companies had contributed to a sour mood on Wall Street. The yield on the 10-year Treasury note slipped to 2.68 per cent.Some analysts said the Fed’s confidence in the U.S. economy appeared to outweigh any concern that the turmoil in emerging market economies might spill over into the United States and other developed nations.“These economies have not been driven into deep recession,” Ian Shepherdson, chief economist at Pantheon Macroeconomics, said of the emerging economies. “Their currencies are weak but not in freefall.”The Fed made no mention of the turbulence that has rocked markets for the past week. In part, that reflects the Fed’s role as a steward of the U.S. economy, not the global economy as a whole: Its dual mandate is to maximize U.S. employment and keep U.S. prices stable.Its bond purchases have helped fuel a huge stock market rally over the past year as investors shifted money out of low-yielding bonds and into stocks. Now that the Fed is cutting back on those bond purchases, many investors fear stocks will fall.“Ultimately, the Fed sort of had no choice but to reduce purchases at this meeting,” said Dan Greenhaus, chief strategist at BTIG brokerage. “If they had paused, they risked sending a signal to markets that they lacked conviction.”The action Wednesday was approved on a 10-0 vote. The last time a Fed policy statement was approved unanimously was June 2011.The Fed’s statement repeated a phrase it first used in December: That it would hold its benchmark short-term rate near zero “well past” the time unemployment falls below 6.5 per cent. The Fed noted that government spending cuts and tax increases are less of a drag on growth than last year. It also said businesses and consumers are stepping up spending.The unemployment rate dipped from 7 per cent to 6.7 per cent in December, the lowest point in five years. Still, much of the decline was due to an exodus of job seekers who gave up looking for work and were no longer counted as unemployed.___AP Economics Writer Josh Boak contributed to this report. read more

Japan sees 1st trade surplus on cheaper oil China rebound

Japan sees 1st trade surplus on cheaper oil, China rebound by Elaine Kurtenbach, The Associated Press Posted Jan 25, 2017 3:29 am MDT Last Updated Jan 25, 2017 at 4:00 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TOKYO – Japan posted its first trade surplus in six years in 2016 thanks to a rebound in exports late in the year and persisting low oil prices, though uncertainties over U.S. policy and global growth are overshadowing the recovery.The 4.1 trillion yen ($35.8 billion) surplus in 2016 compared with a 2.8 trillion yen deficit in 2015, the government reported Wednesday. Exports fell 7.4 per cent from a year earlier to 70.04 trillion yen ($617 billion) while imports dropped 16 per cent to 66 trillion yen ($581 billion), the report showed.But December’s data showed a strong rebound in exports to China and some other Asian countries, suggestion a recent uptick in growth in Asia’s biggest economy is filtering through supply chains across the region.A weakening in the Japanese yen against the U.S. dollar since Donald Trump was elected president also increased the value of exports in yen terms. A dollar now buys about 114 yen, up from about 101 yen at the time of the Nov. 8 election.In the full year, Japan’s trade surplus with the U.S. fell nearly 5 per cent, to 6.8 trillion yen ($59 billion). Exports fell 7.1 per cent from the year before to 14.1 trillion yen ($124.6 billion) and imports dropped 7.3 per cent to 7.3 trillion yen ($64.4 billion), the report said.Japan ran a 4.6 trillion yen ($41 billion) deficit with China, its largest trading partner, down by a quarter from a year earlier.U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to drop out of the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade pact, and his comments on imposing “border taxes” on some imports has added to uncertainties over U.S. trade policy.“The sustainability of external demand remains the key for the Japan’s export recovery, because of emerging protectionism and uncertainties in the US trade policy, given President Donald Trump’s repeated concerns about Japan’s auto exports and trade surplus with the U.S.,” Harumi Taguchi, principal economist at IHS Global Insight, said in a note.A Japanese government spokesman said Wednesday that Tokyo was discussing how to handle future trade negotiations such as the TPP and another Asian trade pact involving China, the Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership.Asked about reports Japan plans to set up a new agency to handle trade talks, Koichi Hagiuda said no decision had been made yet, but “there’s no denying that this is one of the options we’re considering.”Past trade friction with the U.S. over auto exports had largely eased after Japanese automakers expanded investments in U.S. factories.Japan’s vehicle exports to the U.S. rose a scant 0.6 per cent in 2016, measured in terms of Japanese yen, but the number of vehicles shipped rose 7.7 per cent to 1.75 million.Globally, Japan’s vehicle exports fell 6 per cent by value and 0.7 per cent by volume, to 5.8 million units. Exports of most other products fell, suggesting only a tepid recovery in demand.Japan’s trade balance slipped into deficit after the 2011 earthquake and tsunami triggered meltdowns at the Fukushima Dai-Ichi nuclear plant and the country’s reactors were shut down for safety checks.To compensate, resource-poor Japan ramped up imports of oil, gas and coal for its conventional power generators. In 2016, imports from the Middle East, Japan’s main source of crude oil, dropped by nearly a third from the year before. read more

Tool for financial service regulators to collect fines from advisers limited

Tool for financial service regulators to collect fines from advisers limited TORONTO – New legislation in Ontario is expected to improve financial service regulators’ ability to collect fines levied against unscrupulous advisers, but an investor advocacy group says the majority of rule-breaking advisers will still likely never pay.Ontario Finance Minister Charles Sousa announced Friday that self-regulating bodies in the investment industry — such as the Mutual Fund Dealers Association of Canada and the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada — would be allowed to file their fine decisions with a court, making them immediately enforceable.By enabling regulators to better collect fines, that will “deter potential offenders from wrongdoing in the first place” and “strengthen investor protection,” Sousa said in a speech.But Marian Passmore, director of policy for FAIR Canada, says the new legislation only represents a small step toward deterring unethical behaviour by advisers, such as embezzlement and pushing unsuitable investments.“There’s significantly better collection rates amongst the provincial jurisdictions that have this ability, but there still is a low collection rate against individuals,” Passmore says.“Depending on the fine and what kind of assets they have, there’s a cost-benefit ratio involved in pursuing collections. So it’s not a silver bullet, but it’s helpful.”According to senior advocacy organization CARP, the success rate for collecting fines in Ontario is approximately 12 per cent, while provinces with the ability to enforce fines such as Alberta, Quebec and P.E.I. have collections rates roughly three times higher. But that still leaves the majority of penalties uncollected.Passmore says FAIR Canada supports the new legislation, but the advocacy group would also like to see fine enforcement action brought against the actual firms who employ rule-breaking advisers.“If they were responsible for the actions of their employees then we’d have much greater fine collections and deterrents,” she said.IIROC, which is owed nearly $20 million in outstanding fines in Ontario dating back to 2008, applauded the change.“As a public interest regulator, this new enforcement tool will enable us to provide stronger protection to the investing public and collect fines from wrongdoers who have previously evaded paying the penalty for their misconduct,” IIROC CEO Andrew Kriegler said in a release.CARP, which advocated for the changes following months of campaigning, said fines are a critical tool to discourage unethical behaviour, as a fine that cannot be collected is “meaningless.”“Now there’s teeth,” said CARP chief operating officer Wanda Morris. “There is more to be done, but today’s announcement is a critical first step.” by David Hodges, The Canadian Press Posted Mar 31, 2017 8:35 am MDT Last Updated Mar 31, 2017 at 2:40 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email read more

Government will not get away with broken promises Micheál Martin

first_imgFIANNA FÁIL LEADER Micheál Martin has said that its success in “reconnecting with the people” would take longer “than we have had”, but remained adamant that the party would not let government get “away with their growing list of broken promises.”Delivering his opening address at the party’s Árd Fheis in Dublin’s RDS, Martin said Ireland needed a party that could “learn from the past but is focused on the future.”He also said that this weekend would mark the completion of the largest reform in the party’s history.“For the first time in our history all voting this weekend will be on the principle of one member, one vote,” he said.The party leader said that Fianna Fáil needed to become a “more activist party” by re-establishing the “link with people which was once our proudest boast.”Criticism of the coalitionMartin went on to criticise the Fine Gael/Labour coalition, saying that the public had now seen that the current government had been “elected on the basis of promises it never intended keeping.”Speaking of the party’s resurgence, he said that this had led to attacks from “the usual suspects” in opposition.“They don’t believe that anybody has the right to challenge them,” he said. “They think that they can just keep rerunning the last general election and everything will be fine for them.” What our opponents and many others don’t understand is that we are not trying to restore the old political balance.Critical of the current government, Martin said that the only list that the Minister for Health James Reilly had managed to improve was the “one for a new primary care centre in his own constituency.”Reducing the deficitMartin said that his party had “adopted a constructive approach” from its first day in opposition. “We have been consistent in our support for bringing the deficit down and have not opposed reasonable measures to achieve this,” he said.Looking to the future“Fianna Fáil isn’t focused on the past,” Martin said. “We are not trying to recreate the old political balance. We are focused on the future and that’s what people are engaging with.”“The process of renewing Fianna Fáil is well underway. In a short time we have achieved a lot more than most people expected – but our work has only begun.”He concluded by saying:We must be true to our founding values and show the people our way to recovery, our way to a fairer recovery. That is our business at this Árd Fheis and it must be our business every day.Read: Micheál Martin gives Taoiseach an E- grade on jobs > Well their rising unpopularity and falling support shows that the public is not interested in their politics as usual – it wants parties which are focused on responding to the issues of today and the future.last_img read more

Property prices up by 85 on last year but still down on

first_imgTHE COST OF property in Ireland rose by 1.4 per cent in April, after a slowdown in March.In the year to April, new figures from the CSO show residential property prices nationally increased by 8.5 per cent, up from the 7.8 per cent year-on-year increase in March.March had seen a month-on-month drop of 0.7 per cent, after a 0.1 per cent rise in February.However, prices in the capital are massively outperforming the rest of the country.In Dublin, residential property prices grew by 3.1 per cent in April and were 17.7 per cent higher than a year ago.Dublin apartment prices were 17.5 per cent higher when compared with the same month of 2013. However, the CSO says that figures for apartments are based on “low volumes of observed transactions and consequently suffer from greater volatility than other series”.The price of residential properties in the Rest of Ireland fell by 0.3 per cent in April compared with a increase of 1.2 per cent in April of last year. Prices were 1.3% higher than in April 2013.Despite the recovery, residential property prices in Dublin are 48.5% lower than their highest level in early 2007.House prices in Dublin are 46.7 per cent lower than their peak in April 2007, with apartment prices 54.2 per cent lower than their peak in February 2007.In the Rest of Ireland, residential property prices are 47.4 per cent lower than their highest level in September 2007.Overall, the national index is 46.3 per cent lower than its highest level in 2007.Read: NAMA promises “the sight of cranes returning to Dublin’s Docklands”Read: Warning over ‘microwave’ housing marketlast_img read more

IBM water cools solar chips heated by the power of 2000 suns

first_imgIf you want to push the CPU in your PC to its absolute limit then you need to switch from air to water cooling (liquid nitrogen would be even better, but isn’t very practical). IBM has decided to do the same thing for a concentrating solar collector, allowing it to deal with a lot more heat by water cooling the chips involved using a microchannel system.A concetrating solar collector uses a parabolic dish covered in mirrors to concentrate the sun’s energy on to module full of of photovoltaic chips. But such systems are limited by how much heat they can cope with.A new system called a High Concentration Photovoltaic Thermal (HCPVT) system has been jointly developed by IBM Research, Airlight Energy, ETH Zurich, and Buchs University of Applied Sciences and Technology to solve the heat issues. It is capable of concentrating the power of 2000 suns on to a photovoltaic chip module like the one shown in the image above.The high temperatures produced in such a setup would melt the module and the arm holding it without cooling, so a highly efficient cooling system had to be designed. The answer is a water cooling solution that sees water running through microchannels just tens of micrometers away from the chips in the module, drawing the heat away from them.The module in this new system consists of over 100 photovoltaic chips each measuring 1cm2. They can convert over 30 percent of the solar radiation directly into electrical energy, but the system is also capable of recovering waste heat above 50 percent.According to ETH Zurich, each chip in the HCPVT module can constantly convert up to 250 watts of energy when placed in a sunny location. Combined, that means 25kW of power generated per HCPVT system. The cost of the energy produced is expected to be as low as 10 cents per kilowatt-hour.It is hoped that such systems can be used on land that would otherwise remain empty. For example, positioning fields of these in a desert would be ideal. And as well as producing electrical energy, the waste heat recovery can be used to desalinate water, for example. It is thought that 20 liters of drinkable water could be produced per day for every square meter of receiver.At the moment the HCPVT system remains at the prototype stage, but when it reaches a stage where it can be commercialized, it is thought the cost will only be around $250 per square meter.last_img read more

The level of damages that require to be awarded have yet to be assessed, and we are confident that this process will reflect the seriousness and gravity of the offending comments. “Whilst this case was unnecessary and avoidable, it allows our client to demonstrate that he will protect and uphold his reputation and good name at every opportunity and with all of the determination that he displays as a professional footballer.” 31 Comments Share199 Tweet Email Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this article https://jrnl.ie/4539845 Short URL Image: Nigel French via PA By Garreth MacNamee Mar 13th 2019, 3:52 PM 30,964 Views last_img read more

Happy Day for Turks and Caicos Southwest Airlines marks first flight

first_imgFacebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp Facebook Twitter Google+LinkedInPinterestWhatsApp#PROVIDENCIALES, Turks and Caicos Islands – November 6, 2017 –  It could easily be described as the happiest moment for the Turks and Caicos, as a country, since hurricanes Irma and Maria when a #SouthwestAirlines 737 touched down at the #ProvidencialesInternationalAirport on Sunday afternoon for the first time.The inaugural flight, with 103 passengers aboard marked a significant milestone and the beginning of a long pursued relationship with America’s biggest airline company.Underscoring the significance of the freshly forged commute between Ft Lauderdale, Florida and Providenciales, Turks and Caicos were three events to mark the milestone.  A welcome reception held Saturday at #iHeartRadio and #SouthwestSoundstage in Miami, Florida where Turks and Caicos, the #DominicanRepublic and #CostaRica were all welcomed to South Florida and introduced as the three newest Caribbean/Latin America flights for the airline.A take off press conference held at the gate of flight 618, the Provo gate within the A terminal, a new Southwest Airlines wing of the #FtLauderdaleHollywoodInternationalAirport.  Conch shells, balloons, interviews, photographs, regional and Turks and Caicos media, and brief remarks punctuated the excitement where the first passenger turning in her boarding pass and entering the flight was Premier, Hon #SharleneRobinson – all smiles, all congratulatory and all thankful. The Premier said Southwest holding to the November 5 start of the flight is a true testament of their commitment and Turks and Caicos’ allure as a destination.  The nation’s leader explained that it would have been understandable had the airline company decided to postponed launch of the route given the seriousness of the September storms, but Southwest is now here and will run daily flights delivering to guests and islanders their no baggage fees and no change fees policies – she called it a happy day for the islands.Tourism Minister, Hon #RalphHiggs said the pursuit of Southwest started some seven years ago, when the airline was flying limited flights only in the US. More seriously, four years ago significant talks began and the deal was inked and now this leading carrier will broaden the options for travelers into the Turks and Caicos.#SteveGoldberg, Senior Vice President of Operations and Hospitality at #SouthwestAirlines agreed, and said there is a demand for the destination and Southwest is ready to deliver on a unique service; Goldberg also made this first flight in. #JohnSmith, CEO of the Airports Authority attributed the success of securing this airlift to tripartite teamwork; the Turks and Caicos Airports Authority, the Turks and Caicos Hotel and Tourism Association and the Turks and Caicos Tourist Board were all highly instrumental in making the Southwest connection happen. On board, prizes were given away with the help of the Junior Tourism Minister, #ZariahIngham and each passenger has a miniature TCI flag and gift from the tourist board as a keepsake and reminder that they were aboard the very first flight of Southwest airlines to this leading regional destination.And yes, there was water canon salute for the new Southwest flight as it taxied into the PIA.

In an effort to lower the radiation doses patients receive from CT scans, Unilabs Röntgen Majorstuen in Oslo, Norway, installed dose-lowering enhancement software on a trial basis between May and November 2008. In selected cases of thoracic CT, the hospital was able to reduce up to 70 percent of the dose as compared to full-dose examinations. The facility used the Clarity CT Solution software made by Saphenia. The system was connected to the facility’s Philips Brilliance 64 CT and Siemens PACS. Data acquired from the scanner were reconstructed on the scanner before post-processing on the Clarity server. From there DICOM images were transferred to the PACS and Philips workstation. In addition, unprocessed raw data was transferred to the workstation for comparison and secondary reconstruction purposes. Unilabs chose only to implement the system for low-dose noncontrast thoracic CT examinations during the trial period. Indications for referral included dyspnea, chest pain, possible pneumonia, suspected interstitial lung disease, and skeletal abnormalities or possible finding on a chest X-ray. There were 35 patients examined under these criteria. Most underwent noncontrast, low-dose CT from the jugulum to the diaphragm at 120 kV, 80 mA. In the last 16 patients the dose was further reduced by lowering mA by an average of 20 percent, some as low as 30 mA. In addition the radiologists included a control group of 10 patients who, for various reasons, had to undergo a full-dose CT of the chest. The images were reconstructed in 3/2 before transfer to the Clarity server. The series of images were examined by one of the three staff radiologists and reported as any other CT scan. Image quality and clinical value were also evaluated. The mean radiation dose in the 35 low-dose patients was 2.41 mSv. The mean dose in the 10 full-dose patients was 5.29 mSv, while the national average dose in Norway is 10 mSv (1). Use of the software contributed to a 53.3 percent and 74.1 percent reduction respectively. If only the last 16 patients were considered, the average dose was 1.55 mSv. This translates into an 84 percent reduction from average dose for Norway and a 70 percent reduction from Unilabs’ average full-dose scans. Image quality and diagnostic value was considered good or very good by all reporting radiologists.(1) Norwegian Radiation Protection Authority http://www.nrpa.no/archive/Internett/Publikasjoner/Veiledere/Veileder5b.pdf, table 6.2 For more information: www.claritysolutions.org, www.unilabs.no FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | Cardiac Imaging | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: The History of CT Calcium Scoring Arthur Agatston, M.D., clinical pro read more Videos | Radiation Therapy | July 30, 2019 VIDEO: Use of Radiotherapy to Noninvasively Ablate Ventricular Tachycardia Pierre Qian, MBBS, read more A comparison of the original and Clarity-enhanced CT image from Philips Brilliance 64, showing a 3 mm contrast-enhanced thorax slice at 133 mAs, 120 KVP.

Chug or check Man opts to check single can of beer for

first_img MELBOURNE — Nothing comes between a man and his beer, as one Aussie has undoubtedly proven.According to The Daily Dot, a male passenger flying from Melbourne, Australia to Perth with Qantas Airlines found himself in an unfortunate predicament at the airport: What to do with his unopened can of beer?Rather than toss the can in the trash (heaven forbid!) or discreetly chug it prior to passing security, the man (who wished to remain anonymous) did what any beer lover would do – he checked his single can of beer as if it were luggage.He told Daily Mail that he did it as a joke; “I half didn’t expect it to come out the other end,” he said. But not only did it arrive safely in Perth, it was situated front and centre – a place of honour – on the baggage carousel ahead of all other items.More news:  Can you guess the top Instagrammed wedding locations in the world?The beer can’s journey was photographed by amused passengers and uploaded to social media.

Mexico hunts drug kingpin probes prison guards

first_imgMEXICO CITY, Mexico — Mexican security forces scrambled Monday to save face and recapture drug kingpin Joaquín “El Chapo” Guzmán as authorities investigated whether guards helped him escape prisonthrough a tunnel under his cell.For the second time in 14 years the head of the powerful Sinaloa drug cartel managed to flee a maximum-security prison, dealing an embarrassing setback to President Enrique Peña Nieto.Troops and police were deployed to hunt down Guzmán after he vanished late Saturday from the Altiplano prison 90 kilometers (55 miles) west of Mexico City, after just 17 months behind bars.Prosecutors questioned 30 prison employees of various rank, including the warden, the attorney general’s office said, signaling suspicions of an inside job.The guards in charge of the capo’s cell and those who monitored the surveillance cameras that look into the room were among those interrogated, an official in the attorney general’s office said.Authorities had already investigated a strange prison visit to Guzmán in March when a woman managed to see him by using a fake ID to enter the jail.On a state visit to Paris, Peña Nieto said Guzmán’s escape was “an affront to the state” and demanded an investigation into whether prison guards helped him.Guzmán, 58, who nurtured a Robin Hood image in his northwestern state of Sinaloa while running the most powerful and one of the most ruthless cartels in Mexico, was able to slip out even though surveillance cameras were trained on his cell.He went into his private shower and after he failed to come out guards found a hole 10 meters (33 feet) deep with a ladder in it.The gap led to a 1.5-kilometer tunnel with a ventilation and light system that was apparently dug with the help of a motorcycle mounted on a rail to transport tools and remove earth.The sophisticated tunnel led to a gray brick building on a hill surrounded by pastures in central Mexico State.Prosecutors released a video showing the hole inside the building’s dirt-covered floor. A bed and kitchen were in the facility, indicating that people had lived there.Against the clockAs investigators tried to figure out how Guzmán busted out again, police and troops manned checkpoints and searched cars and trucks on nearby roads.Mike Vigil, a retired U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) international operations chief, warned that if Guzmán is not captured in the next day or so he will vanish for good.“If he is able to make his way to Sinaloa, his native state, and gets into that mountainous range, it’s going to be very difficult to capture him because he enjoys the protection of local villagers,” Vigil told AFP.Recommended: How do ‘El Chapo’ Guzmán’s kids live? Follow them on TwitterSeveral states, including Sinaloa, set up checkpoints. Central Puebla state said it was using X-ray technology at toll booths to see through cars.Troops in Guatemala launched a special operation at the border with Mexico. It was in that country that Guzmán was first arrested in 1993.Guzmán’s first escape was in 2001, when he slipped past authorities by hiding in a laundry cart in western Jalisco state.Marines recaptured him in February 2014 in a pre-dawn raid in a condo in Mazatlán, a Pacific resort in Sinaloa state, with the DEA’s help.He was then jailed at Altiplano, which houses several other infamous drug capos captured during Peña Nieto’s administration.Peña Nieto setbackGuzmán’s second escape overshadowed Peña Nieto’s visit to France.The government has won praise for capturing a slew of kingpins and Guzmán, a diminutive but feared man whose nickname means “Shorty,” was the president’s biggest trophy.U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said she shared Mexico’s “concern” and offered help for his “swift recapture.”Some U.S. prosecutors wanted to ask for his extradition following last year’s arrest, but Mexican officials insisted on trying him first.“This leads to a big problem with the U.S. government because they asked (for an extradition) and the Mexican government did not deliver him, claiming that he could be held in one of the country’s maximum-security prisons,” said Raúl Benítez Manaut, security expert at the National Autonomous University of Mexico.
