Middle East Annan condemns upsurge in violence urges restraint

A statement issued by his spokesman said Mr. Annan was concerned by yesterday’s suicide bomb attack on a bus in the city of Hadera in northern Israel, in which three Israelis died, as well as earlier killings of a Palestinian leader and five boys in Gaza. Mr. Annan reiterated his condemnation of indiscriminate attacks on civilians and extra-judicial killings, which he said made progress towards a ceasefire more difficult to achieve. “The Secretary-General once again urges all parties to make every effort to stop the escalating violence,” the spokesman said. “The growing loss of life on both sides highlights the urgency of the ongoing efforts to secure a durable ceasefire and to start a meaningful dialogue aimed at finding a peaceful solution to the conflict.” read more

Gatebox Wants To Be Your Personal Holographic Companion

first_img Japanese Man Happily ‘Married’ to 16-Year-Old Hologram SingerRonnie James Dio is the New Hatsune Miku Stay on target If you’ve ever dreamed about having your own personal holographic assistant, perhaps those days aren’t too far off. Enter Gatebox, a holographic home robot much like Siri or Alexa, except a whole lot cuter.The device, seen here with pre-installed character Azuma Kikari, can be used to automate things like your lights at home and other processes as well as act as a miniature companion in your home. The home robot is seen acting as both and fulfilling several functions in the touching video advertisement, where a lonely salaryman texts and receives texts from the robot during the day, interacts with her as if she were his wife, and enjoys her company. It’s sweet, and it definitely makes me interested.The device is slated to run you about $2,725, or 321,840 yen, and you can actually pick it up right now as a pre-order, but despite the fact that this is a real product and will likely actually release, there’s not that much information floating around on the internet about it other than it will utilize warmth, moisture, and light sensors to accomplish the many goals it sets out to complete for you.For you to get the text messages as seen in the promotional video, you’ll also need to sign up for the Gatebox iOS or Android app so your virtual idol can send you messages throughout the day. It looks like you’ll even be able to tell your character when you’re coming home so it can have the house ready for you, and if that’s not charming, then I don’t know what is.The pre-installed character Azuma Hikari is her own person too, and even has dreams of her own, and unfortunately Japanese looks to be the only official supported language right now. Hopefully there will be an English option that ends up coming in the next few months, but for now, we can drool over the video and how absolutely, ridiculously cute it is.last_img read more

Public reps play a key role in Haritha Haram success

first_imgWarangal: Notwithstanding the plantation of crores of saplings every year under Haritha Haram, there is very little progress the administration can claim credit, Warangal Urban District Collector Prashanth Jeevan Patil said. “In fact, the authorities are in a piquant situation unable to show even a single avenue or a block plantation that has full of trees,” he said, speaking at an awareness programme here on Tuesday. Also Read – Warrant issued against Renuka Chowdhury in cheating case Advertise With Us Even though the administration has implemented Haritha Haram programme at full throttle in last few years, the desired results are a far cry, he said. “Although there was little achievement to showcase, travesty is such that we have received several national and state level awards for carrying Haritha Haram programme,” Patil said. It is high time that the people’s representatives played a proactive role in making the plantation drive a huge success, he said. Despite the presence of village-level committees for Haritha Haram, lack of monitoring led to the failure of plantation drive, the Collector said.

The NREGS workers will be paid Rs 5,275 a month. Advertise With Us The gram panchayats and watchers who ensures 80 per cent survival rate will be provided with incentives, he added. The Collector said that best three gram panchayats in each mandal would get an incentive of Rs 5 lakh. It may be mentioned here that there are seven mandals in the Urban district. Five watchers, five field assistants, one APO, one EC and five technical assistants from each mandal who perform well for the survival of saplings would get Rs 10,000 incentive, the Collector said. Special officers, MPDOs, nodal and other officials would get certificate of appreciation, he said. Husnabad MLA V Sathish Kumar said that it is high time that the people focussed on greenery so that to keep the environment safe. Zilla Parishad chairperson M Sudheer Kumar spoke about the ill-effects of the deforestation. Chief Conservator of Forests M J Akbar said that a WhatsApp group with officials and people’s representatives would be created to spread latest techniques to e adopted in the plantation drive. Horticulture Officer Srinivas Rao said that Srigandham plants would provide additional income to farmers. He said that the government was providing saplings free of cost to farmers.

Discriminatory violent rhetoric goes unpunished in Sri Lanka

first_imgColombo : Discriminatory and violent rhetoric, particularly by the majority community, frequently goes unpunished in Sri Lanka, a top UN official has said as he expressed concern over the growing hate speech incidents in the wake of the Easter Sunday attacks that killed 258 people. UN Special Rapporteur on freedom of assembly Clement Nyaletsossi Voule urged the political leadership not to dismiss people’s desire for freedom, the rule of law or undermine democracy. Also Read – UK, EU Brexit teams to meet twice-weekly in September Advertise With Us Voule said while the country’s Constitution protects the rights to both freedom of peaceful assembly and freedom of expression, however, the application of a number of laws jeopardised those rights, including sections of the penal code, the ICCPR Act as well as the Prevention of Terrorism Act. “It has been brought to my attention that these laws are frequently being applied in a discriminatory manner against those people organising around specific issues such as disappearances, land rights, livelihood and access to resources, and development projects,” Voule said. Also Read – Climate change: Australia downgrades outlook for Great Barrier Reef to ‘very poor’ Advertise With Us The official told reporters here on Friday that the Vagrants Ordinance, in particular, was being used to target LGBTI community. He expressed concern over the growing incidents of hate speech since the Easter Sunday bombings that killed 258 people and injured hundreds others. “While legislation is in place to combat hate speech, …. the legislation is not applied with an even hand. Advertise With Us Discriminatory and violent rhetoric, particularly by members of the majority community frequently goes unpunished,” Voule said. He said the social media was accessed to fan the flames of hatred and spread misinformation. The elections due later this year may hinder the progress made on establishing the rule of law, Voule said. “This is a serious threat to the existence of a respectful and peaceful dialogue among sectors of society, an essential element for any representative democracy,” Voule said. Sri Lanka’s next presidential election must be held before December 8 while elections for the 9 provincial councils have also fallen due. Nine suicide bombers attacked three churches and as many luxury hotels on April 21 in one of Sri Lanka’s worst terror attacks. The ISIS terror group claimed the attacks, but the government blamed the local Islamist extremist group National Thawheed Jammath (NTJ) for the bombings. In the wake of the bombings, majority Sinhala community mobs attacked Muslim-owned properties in towns north of the capital killing one Muslim man and leaving hundreds of homes, shops and mosques vandalised. The Muslim ministers quit their posts after two Muslim provincial governors resigned Monday after thousands of people, including majority Buddhist community monks, launched a protest in the pilgrim city of Kandy, demanding their sacking for allegedly supporting Islamist extremists responsible for the Easter suicide bombings. Muslims account for 10 per cent of the population and are the second-largest minority after Hindus. Around seven per cent of Sri Lankans are Christians.last_img read more

Chinas BRI to boost economy Gowher Rizvi

first_imgPrime minister`s international affairs adviser Gowher RizviPrime minister’s international affairs adviser Gowher Rizvi on Saturday said the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI), launched by Chinese president Xi Jinping, would help Bangladesh achieve its development goals showing the path where Bangladesh wants to go, reports UNB.”So, we need not to worry. I want to emphasise very clearly – this is not a zero-sum game, it’s a positive-sum game. We can benefit from all various initiatives,” he said ruling out any conflict with any country or other regional initiatives which are already in place.The foreign affairs expert said Bangladesh’s support and participation in the BRI does not exclude the country from participating in other initiatives in the region, and will have no conflict with any country.”Our prime minister (Sheikh Hasina) for the last 10 years has been emphasising the importance of connectivity,” Rizvi said adding that the prime minister sees connectivity as the mechanism and route to which Bangladesh’s prosperity and stability will be built.He was addressing a launching ceremony of Bangladesh-China Silk Road Forum held at the National Press Club.Chinese ambassador to Bangladesh Zhang Zuo, chairman of the Forum and former industries minister Dilip Barua, former information minister Hasanul Haq Inu, BNP standing committee member Abdul Moyeen Khan and writer Syed Abul Maksud, among others, spoke at the event.Rizvi said the BRI is not only an important initiative of their time but also it goes very well with the priorities of Bangladesh.”We’ve launched our own connectivity BBIN (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Nepal), we had already joined BCIM (Bangladesh, China, India, Myanmar) economic corridor. We’re a member and hosting BIMSTEC,” he said adding that all these initiatives coming together – BRI is really in many ways a purpose-made initiative for advancement.Recalling Bangladesh’s foreign policy goal, Rizvi said Bangladesh not only can take advantage of the BRI but also can promote its national interest, national prosperity, peace and stability.”We must keep (us) out of global rivalry. We need to think of our own interest within our own ideological framework,” he said.Rizvi said there is also Indo-Pacific Strategy which India is promoting. “We, in Bangladesh, don’t see any conflict between these two initiatives.”He said both the initiatives will have their own reasons and purposes to advance their goals and prosperity.The adviser said these are essentials for Bangladesh’s goals and aim – various inspirations, Vision 2021, Agenda 2030 and developed country by 2041. “And these all will collectively facilitate where we want to go.”Rizvi said it is also very important to remember the trend of Indo-China relations over the last 10 years saying India is one of the largest trading partners of China.Regarding the formation of the forum, he said they have no reservation about it and want to absolutely welcome this initiative and congratulate all those who are associating in creating it.Chinese ambassador Zuo said Bangladesh and China need to work together to push the bilateral relations towards a new era and better future bringing more benefits to both peoples.”As next year will mark the 45th anniversary of China-Bangladesh diplomatic ties, we need to work together to create a congenial atmosphere for cooperation, and deepen our policy connectivity and people-to-people bond,” he said.Ambassador Zuo said the Bangladesh-China Silk Road Forum has been launched at the right moment when there is a lot to be achieved.He said Bangladesh’s diplomatic policy of “Friendship to all, malice to none”, and president Xi Jinping’s Thought on Diplomacy, both have provided new opportunities for win-win cooperation for the two countries.The envoy said Bangladeshi people’s dream of a strong and wealthy nation, manifested in the dream of ‘Sonar Bangla’, and the Chinese dream of national rejuvenation pursued by the Chinese people is interconnected and share many common merits.He hoped the Forum would pay attention to telling good stories about China-Bangladesh friendship, passing on the voices in the communication and exchanges between the two countries, and building this forum into an important bridge for China-Bangladesh connectivity.Dilip Barua said the concept of Silk Road is important for Bangladesh’s economic development with enhanced connectivity on all fronts.He said a 49-member forum is formed under his leadership with The Financial Express executive editor Shahiduzzaman Khan as its secretary general.The Chinese envoy said Bangladesh is an important partner for China in the BRI and in production capacity cooperation in South Asia and the Indian Ocean region from every angle, including its location, the size of its population, its market potential and the cooperation scope.China remains the largest trading partner to Bangladesh, while in 2018, Bangladesh became the 2nd largest trading partner to China in South Asia, and the biggest market for engineering contracts signed, according to Chinese embassy in Dhaka.The bilateral trade reached US$ 18.74 billion, up by 16.8 per cent year on year.last_img

The medical community buzzed a couple of weeks ago as word spread of technology guru Vinod Khosla’s prediction that the future of medical practice would be more robot than doctor. During the Health Innovation Summit held in San Francisco, the co-founder of Sun Microsystems and present-day Silicon Valley investor said computer-generated decisions, based on broad patient datasets, would lead to better healthcare than can be delivered by the average doctor ( operated by devices seeded with artificial intelligence would provide objective analyses,  he said, ones that physicians today largely cannot do because of embedded procedures and hackneyed ways of thinking about healthcare. This led Khosla to conclude that at least 80 percent of doctors could be replaced by software.To be sure, radiologists wage battle against this kind of thinking every day. Look at the battle to reduce patient exposure to radiation. Despite a broad-based consensus that children comprise the group of patients most sensitive and vulnerable to ionizing radiation, emergency room doctors often order computed tomography (CT) scans of children with minor head injuries, when several hours of observation has been shown to be just as effective. (Donnelly, LF. Reducing Radiation Dose Associated with Pediatric CT by Decreasing Unnecessary Examinations, AJR February 2005, 184: 655-657) This is done with the support, even at the insistence, of parents.We are, after all, humans, driven by emotion as well as reason. Fear is among the most powerful. It fuels our actions, as in the case of fear of litigation. When combined with love for a child who we fear may be severely hurt, it’s damn the radiation…fire up the CT.In Khosla’s future, machines would call the shots. Their decisions would be based on algorithms. Some would argue, current day healthcare already is. Diagnosticians are taught to think horses not zebras; to consider common ailments before rare ones. The Hippocratic oath leads radiologists to recommend ultrasound as a first step, when possible. What Khosla is promoting, however, is machine-based reasoning that breeds a level of objectivity unattainable by people, an objectivity based on data and applied with machine-based logic that gets sharper with experience. Underlying this argument is that machines don’t have to fight back fear or overcome love. They are incapable of either. Consequently, they can dispense cold-hearted objectivity that has the potential to make medical practice better.I agree that such logic has the potential to make healthcare better, but only if resulting interpretations are applied by caring doctors, ones available in sufficient numbers to meet with and be part of patients’ lives.In the end, medicine is about helping people — all people, not just those whose illnesses can be exactly determined and cured. If medical practice were reduced to algorithms, five-year survival rates would dictate treatment. Current medical practice would be an impenetrable ceiling. The concepts of fighting on, breaking the odds, faith, hope and prayer would be vanquished from medicine. And the human race would be much poorer for it.center_img Feature | August 05, 2019 | Dave Fornell, Editor Most Popular Radiology and Radiotherapy Topics in July 2019 August 5, 2019 — Here is the list of the most popular content on the Imaging Technology New (ITN) magazine website fr read more The CT scanner might not come with protocols that are adequate for each hospital situation, so at Phoenix Children’s Hospital they designed their own protocols, said Dianna Bardo, M.D., director of body MR and co-director of the 3D Innovation Lab at Phoenix Children’s.

Philippine governor says rival tried to kill him

first_imgAmpatuan, his sons and alleged gunmen are among 103 suspects in the long-running trial, the largest in recent Philippine history. They have denied the murder charges.Mangudadatu’s wife, relatives and supporters, along with 31 media workers, were killed Nov. 23, 2009, after they were stopped on a highway by suspected armed followers of Ampatuan, mowed down and buried in mass graves.Mangudadatu, who was elected governor in 2010, testified that he and another brother rushed to their sibling’s residence after it was surrounded by gunmen and armored trucks. He said he prevented the attack by persuading the gunmen, who were led by a distant relative of Mangudadatu, to withdraw.“I pleaded with him not to kill us. He said, `This is the order of Andal Ampatuan Sr.,’” Mangudadatu said.Prima Jesusa Quinsayas, a lawyer representing the victims at the trial, said Mangudadatu’s testimony showed that the Ampatuan clan intended to harm Mangudadatu leading up to the 2009 massacre.Mangudadatu described the Ampatuans as “powerful, influential and violent.”He said their influence was so pervasive that they controlled the military and police in the impoverished province and could even determine the outcome of elections “down to the village chairman.” How men can have a healthy 2019 Comments   Share   Top Stories Election violence in the Philippines is rampant, especially in far-flung provinces, and the national government has been unwilling or unable to disarm private armies loyal to political warlords. In the southern Philippines, insecurity and lawlessness are exacerbated by a long-running Muslim rebellion and the proliferation of firearms.The bloodshed usually involves entire clans since political power is shared among family members, who offer each other support and protection.Mangudadatu said that on the day of the massacre, his wife told him by cellphone that she and others had been stopped by armed men and that she was slapped by Ampatuan’s son, Andal Jr.He said he saw his wife’s body the next day in a morgue. She had been stabbed in the back and had gunshot wounds in different parts of her body, including her breasts and genitals, he said.“I was thinking how they could have been crying out, pleading for pity,” he said. “It hurts. I want to remove that from my memory.”On Thursday, presidential spokesman Edwin Lacierda said that the government wants to speed up the trial _ which started two and a half years ago _ calling it a “blot in our Philippine judicial system.” He asked the Supreme Court to find a way to expedite the proceedings without sacrificing justice. More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Associated PressMANILA, Philippines (AP) – A Philippine governor said that his political rival and the main suspect in the 2009 election-related killings of 57 people tried to kill him and his brothers months before the massacre, calling him “powerful, influential and violent.”Esmael Mangudadatu, governor of southern Maguindanao province, testified Thursday at the massacre trial that his predecessor, then-Gov. Andal Ampatuan Sr., had sent hundreds of government soldiers, police and civilian militia to attack his brother’s residence in the restive region. About four months after the failed attack, Ampatuan allegedly ordered gunmen to kill 57 people, including Mangudadatu’s wife, who were en route to contest local elections. About 60 main witnesses have testified so far at the trial. About 100 suspects are still at large.Prosecutors say at least six witnesses, potential witnesses and their relatives have been killed since the trial started in an attempt to suppress testimony.Lacierda said the witnesses who were killed had refused police protection.—Associated Press writer Hrvoje Hranjski contributed to this report.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.
