Man abducted over business rivalry rescued in Patna

first_imgKolkata: A man, who was abducted from Tiljala a few days ago, was rescued from Bihar by police on Thursday. During preliminary investigation, police officers came to know that the abduction took place over business rivalry.According to a source, on May 4, Afreen Warsi, a resident of PG Road in Tiljala, lodged a complaint with the police against the abduction of her husband by some criminals. She told the police that a few days ago some criminals, who were identified as Rajesh and Sushant, informed her over the phone that her husband identified as Niranjan Kumar alias Aman Warsi has been kidnapped and the alleged kidnappers demanded a ransom Rs 80 lakh. After the complaint was lodged with the police, the Anti Rowdy Squad (ARS) of Detective Department took charge of the case. The mobile numbers which were used to call up Afreen were traced. Meanwhile, Afreen kept bargaining with the kidnappers to reduce the ransom amount. After a few days, the ransom amount was fixed at Rs 6 lakh. Police officers traced the phone numbers at Jhajha in Jamui district of Bihar. A team of Anti Rowdy Squad immediately rushed to Jhajha. Afreen was told by the police to inform kidnappers that she is on her way with the money. When kidnappers thought that they were about to get the money and were waiting for Afreen, the Kolkata Police team managed to spot one of the kidnappers identified as Ranjit with the help from Bihar Police. Later, Niranjan was rescued from a nearby place. A source informed a few more persons were behind the abduction. Niranjan is a resident of Patna but at present lives in Tiljala where he owns a grocery shop. He was involved in some business deals with one of accused named in the FIR. It is suspected that there could be some dispute between Niranjan and the accused which led to the abduction. Niranjan was brought to Kolkata by the police officers. Search is on to nab other culprits, including the mastermind of the case.last_img read more

Cyprus UN peacekeeping mission extended for another six months

14 December 2009The Security Council today renewed for another six months the 45-year-old United Nations peacekeeping mission in Cyprus, citing “a rare opportunity to make decisive progress in a timely fashion” to reunify the Mediterranean island after a history of fighting between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities. The Security Council today renewed for another six months the 45-year-old United Nations peacekeeping mission in Cyprus, citing “a rare opportunity to make decisive progress in a timely fashion” to reunify the Mediterranean island after a history of fighting between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities.In a resolution adopted by 14 votes to one, with only Turkey opposing, the 15-member body strongly urged the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot leaders “to increase the momentum in the negotiations to ensure the full exploitation of this opportunity to reach a comprehensive settlement based on a bicommunal, bizonal federation with political equality.”Greek Cypriot leader Dimitris Christofias and Turkish Cypriot leader Mehmet Ali Talat have been meeting regularly for more than a year under UN auspices in a bid to establish a Federal Government with a single international personality, along with a Turkish Cypriot Constituent State and a Greek Cypriot Constituent State, which would be of equal status.The Council extended the mandate of the UN peacekeeping mission in Cyprus (UNFICYP) until 15 June, 2010. Now mustering 926 uniformed personnel – 858 troops and 68 police – supported by 40 international civilian staff, the mission was first established in 1964 to prevent further fighting between the Greek Cypriot and Turkish Cypriot communities. After hostilities erupted again in 1974, its responsibilities were expanded to supervise ceasefire lines, maintain a buffer zone and undertake humanitarian activities.Explaining his country’s opposition, Turkish Ambassador Ertugrul Apakan objected that the resolution, like all previous ones, referred to the ‘Government of Cyprus,’ “which in reality has been representing only the Greek Cypriots since 1963. This could not be accepted by the Turkish Cypriot side and, as one of the guarantors of Cyprus, by Turkey,” he said. read more

Apples Lets Talk iPhone event by the numbers

first_imgApple CEO Tim Cook is currently up on stage at Apple’s headquarters in Cupertino giving his keynote speech during the “Let’s Talk iPhone” event. Though we’re all waiting to hear what Cook has to say about the hugely-anticipated iPhone 5, he started by laying out some numbers for us to put Apple as a company into perspective. It’s no surprise that Apple’s been doing well for itself. Apple has repeatedly seen record-breaking revenues quarter after quarter.To start the event off, Cook boasted that the Shanghai store is “absolutely gorgeous,” and is the company’s largest store in Asia. The store saw over 100,000 people in its opening weekend. At the Apple Store opening in Hong Kong, Apple sold more Macs on its opening day than in any other store in the world. Apple now has 357 stores, and Cook said “we’ll continue to invest in more and more stores.” No surprise there.As for the software numbers, Cook said that over 6 million copies of Lion have been downloaded, which is 80 percent more than Snow Leopard. Compared to Windows 7, it took 20 weeks to reach 20 percent of the Windows Install base, and it took Lion two weeks.The Mac also is doing very well for itself. Cook said the MacBook Pro and the iMac are the No. 1 best-selling notebooks and desktops in the U.S. Cook said that every single quarter for the last five years, the Mac has outgrown the PC market. “We’re now approaching 60 million users around the world,” Cook said. The Mac platform has grown by 23 percent since last year. As for the PC, it’s only grown four percent. Cook said despite all this, there are still 70 percent of people buying something else. “We still have a lot to do,” Cook said.As for the iPods, Apple has sold over 300 million of the devices. He said it took Sony 30 years to sell 220,000 Walkmen cassette players. Apple sold 45 million iPods from July 2010 to June of 2011, which is quite an impressive number. iPod owners have plenty of music to listen to as well with their new iPods. iTunes now has 20 million songs, which is 20 times as many songs as what the service first launched with. Over 16 billion songs have been downloaded so far.The iPhone 4 has sold over half of all the iPhones Apple has ever sold since it started. It’s been rated the No. 1 phone six times in a row by JD Power and Associates. As for the iPad, it’s been the “undisputed, top selling tablet in the world,” Cook said. Three out of four tablets are iPads.We’ll be keeping you updated as the keynote progresses.last_img read more

La cosmonaute russe Elena Serova senvolera pour lISS en 2014

first_imgLa cosmonaute russe Elena Serova s’envolera pour l’ISS en 2014En 2014, une cosmonaute russe partira en mission dans l’espace. Il s’agira de la 4ème femme à être envoyée dans l’espace par Moscou depuis la Soviétique Valentina Terechkova, toute première femme à avoir volé dans l’espace en 1963. Alors que la Russie va fêter le 16 juin le 50e anniversaire du vol de la première femme dans l’espace, la Soviétique Valentina Terechkova (aujourd’hui 75 ans), le pays s’apprête à envoyer une nouvelle cosmonaute en orbite. En effet, Elena Serova, 36 ans, membre de l’unité des cosmonautes professionnels, “se prépare à faire un vol spatial dans la deuxième moitié de 2014”, a indiqué Alexeï Temerov, responsable du centre d’entraînement de la Cité des Etoiles, près de Moscou. Il s’agira de la 4ème femme à être envoyée dans l’espace par Moscou, 17 ans après la dernière femme russe à l’avoir fait, Elena Kondakova et plus de 30 ans après les vols de Svetlana Savitskaïa en 1982 et en 1984. Elena Serova passera six mois à bord de la Station spatiale internationale (ISS). “Son programme de travail à bord de l’ISS n’aura rien d’extraordinaire. Ce sera un programme scientifique habituel. Une sortie dans l’espace n’est pas prévue”, a ajouté M. Temerov cité par l’AFP. Elle fera partie de l’expédition 42, aux côtés du Russe Aleksandr Samokutyayev (dont ce sera le second vol) et de l’Américain Barry Wilmore (second vol également).

Death penalty ban clears state Senate committee

first_imgOLYMPIA — A Senate committee has approved a measure to abolish the death penalty in Washington state.Senate Bill 6052 passed the Senate Law and Justice Committee Thursday on a party line 4-3 vote and now heads to the Rules Committee. Bipartisan efforts to ban the death penalty have failed to gain traction in recent years, in spite of a moratorium put in place by Gov. Jay Inslee in 2014. As long as the moratorium is in place, death row inmates will remain in prison rather than face execution.The Senate measure would remove capital punishment as a sentencing option for aggravated murder and mandate instead a sentence of life in prison without possibility of parole.A 2015 study from Seattle University found that death penalty cases in the state cost $1 million more than similar cases where capital punishment is not sought.last_img read more

49 Voices Charla Kouadio and Theresa ColeyKouadio of Kotzebue

first_imgThis week we’re hearing from Charla Kouadio and Theresa Coley-Kouadio in Kotzebue. The married couple have lived in Kotzebue for just over two years. I’ve lived in other places, Massachusetts and Florida, and bigger cities like Boston, and I don’t believe that anybody would have stopped to help me. But once I did get to the road, within a few minutes, somebody came by and they were able to call 911 for me. It’s a big deal. Because we don’t have a car, we walk to work, obviously. We walk to the post office, we walk to the bank, we walk to the grocery store. Some much so, that when I’m out of here and kind of back in a more traditional U.S. experience, I say, “Gosh! We’ve been indoors too much. We need to go for a walk. I don’t want to be in the car anymore.” And I think the fresh air is healing and wonderful. So I really like that. I had an accident on my four-wheeler; I hit a patch of black ice. And the four-wheeler spun around and it went one way and I went the other way. I ended up going face down in the tundra. I went unconscious, and when I woke up, there was blood everywhere. I drove myself to the road because I believed with my whole heart that if I could get to the road, and somebody could see me, somebody would help me. CHARLA: I love living here because I believe that this is a community, a real community that’s full of good Samaritans, so that people are willing to help each other here. I’ve seen that happen more than on one occasion, and it’s also happened to me personally. center_img Charla Kouadio (left) and Theresa Coley-Kouadio in Kotzebue. (Photo courtesy of Charla Kouadio) THERESA: And it’s a community, so folks were checking in on Facebook, “I heard Charla was in an accident. How’s she doing? Is she okay, do you need anything?” And so it wasn’t just a personal incident. It was a community incident and everybody won’t be better until everybody’s better. I work for Maniilaq (Association). We both work for Maniilaq, and I’m a provider, and I really love the health system and how we have a seamless communication with Alaska Natives. And I really do feel that the kinda health care that folks get here, the rest of the United States deserves wherever they are. last_img read more

How to add a table of contents to a Word 2016 document

first_imgHow to add a table of contents to a Word 2016 document by Martin Brinkmann on August 25, 2017 in Tutorials – Last Update: August 16, 2017 – 3 commentsAdding a table of contents to a Microsoft Word 2016 document is not a complicated process. Still, if it is your first time doing so you may find it helpful if the process is laid out to you in clear words.A table of contents lists chapters and other segments of a book or document. Most scientific books and many magazines display the table of contents on the first couple of pages of the document.The table helps with the orientation but also highlights the logical structure of the document to the reader.Microsoft Word 2016 supports adding the table of contents to a document. The Microsoft Office program pulls the data from headlines that you add to the document making it a very convenient process.With that said, the first thing you need to do is make use of the heading tag as Word 2016 will use the information provided to generate the table of contents afterwards.Note that the choice of heading determines how a particular entry is listed in the table of contents. Each heading tag but the main one is indented, so if you use H1, H2 and H3, H2 and H3 are indented whereas H1 is not.Word 2016 ships with several table of contents templates that you can choose from. You can even download more templates from the Office website if the ones that are included are not what you are looking for.Once you have added headings to your document, do the following to add the table of content to it:Go to the location of the document that you want to display the table of contents in.Switch to the References tab in the Word toolbar.Click on “Table of Contents” there, and select one of the available templates. The templates are displayed as a preview right away when you click so that you know how they look like.Once you have selected a template, the table of contents is added to the document.You may delete the table of contents again, or modify headings in case something is not displayed like you want it to. One of the easier options for the latter is to enable the “navigation pane” under the View tab as it lists all headings of the document.Another option that you have is to update the table. This is important if you modify the document, for instance by adding new headings to it or by adding or removing text so that the pages don’t match anymore in the table of contents.To update the table of contents in Word 2016, select it and click on the “update table” option that is displayed at the top of the table on each page it is displayed on.And that is how you create, add, and update a table of contents in Word 2016.SummaryArticle NameHow to add a table of contents to a Word 2016 documentDescriptionThe guide describes how you add a table of contents to a Microsoft Word 2016 document, and how you update or modify the table.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

3 Tips to Combat Radiologist Burnout

first_imgFeature | Radiology Business | July 03, 2019 | By Jeffrey Hoffmeister, M.D. 3 Tips to Combat Radiologist Burnout In today’s complex healthcare environment, burnout has become commonplace, but there are several key steps practices can take to address this among radiologists Image courtesy of GE Healthcare 3. Leverage Cutting-edge Technology to Improve EfficiencySure, getting used to new technologies can be a stressor for any medical professional. However, with so many images to read, radiologists can truly benefit from technology that simplifies, not complicates, their processes. This is where artificial intelligence (AI)-powered software can be extremely impactful. Solutions that leverage AI and deep learning are now being used to speed up DBT interpretation time and improve reading workflow. These solutions have become smarter and more adept at identifying cancer as they are trained on breast imaging data, automatically highlighting suspicious areas and enabling radiologists to focus on areas they should review more closely. These detection solutions have shown incredible promise for improving clinical performance for identifying cancer, while reducing radiologist reading time by more than half.The spike in radiologists who indicate they’re struggling with burnout should be of great concern to the medical industry, as these professionals are on the front lines of patient care. With early cancer detection playing such a crucial role in hastening the path to treatment and improving survival rates, it’s important for the industry as a whole to come together to help reduce radiologist burnout and, most importantly, to help radiologists continue to work toward providing more effective and efficient care.  News | Mammography Reporting Software | July 26, 2019 Ikonopedia Releases Automated Combined Reporting Package at AHRA Ikonopedia showcased its recently released Automated Combined Reporting package and its entire suite of structured… read more Related Content News | Radiology Business | August 01, 2019 Philips Completes Acquisition of Carestream Health’s HCIS Business … read more Feature | Information Technology | July 31, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr How Smart Devices Can Improve Efficiency Innovation is trending toward improved efficiency — but not at the expense of patient safety, according to… read more Jeffrey Hoffmeister, M.D. Feature | Radiology Imaging | July 29, 2019 | By Greg Freiherr Imaging Market in U.S. Could Rise In Coming Years The coming years may be good for the medical imaging community in the United States.

Minimize Administrative BurdensSince bureaucratic tasks were listed high on the Medscape report’s reasons for burnout, practices should consider hiring an individual — such as a reading room coordinator — to manage phone calls, pull records and help track down doctors for consultations. Having someone dedicated to these tasks will free up radiologists and allow them to focus more deeply on their core job — reading and interpreting images and focusing on providing quality patient care. Image courtesy of Imago Systems Jeffrey Hoffmeister, M.D.Burnout in the medical profession is not uncommon, particularly as clinicians have become more overwhelmed by growing patient loads, regulatory requirements, and the implementation of new systems and processes that change the way they practice medicine. Now more than ever, this exhaustion has become overwhelming in the radiology field.According to a recent report by Medscape, the rate of radiologist burnout has grown substantially. In 2017, radiology ranked 20th in the medical specialties reporting burnout. In 2018, it increased and is now the 7th highest, ranking just below high-pressure fields like critical care, obstetrics/gynecology and emergency medicine. Moreover, the survey noted that 45 percent of radiologists reported feeling burnt out, compared with 42 percent of the overall physician population.There are several factors contributing to this in the medical field. These include too many bureaucratic tasks; spending too many hours at work; becoming accustomed to increasing computerization at work; insufficient compensation; decreasing reimbursements; as well as increased emphasis on profit over patients.center_img PreviousNext Key Topics for Radiology Administrators at AHRA 2019Video Player is loading.Play VideoPlayMuteCurrent Time 0:00/Duration 7:33Loaded: 2.15%Stream Type LIVESeek to live, currently playing liveLIVERemaining Time -7:33 Playback Rate1xChaptersChaptersDescriptionsdescriptions off, selectedCaptionscaptions settings, opens captions settings dialogcaptions off, selectedAudio Trackdefault, selectedFullscreenThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

This modal can be closed by pressing the Escape key or activating the close button. The Role of 3-D Mammography in BurnoutIn addition, radiologists face some specific industry factors and stressors of their own, such as changes in medical imaging technology. Consider the move from 2-D mammography to digital breast tomosynthesis (DBT), also known as 3-D mammography. In the last two years, the number of DBT systems in use at certified mammography facilities in the U.S. has grown rapidly, according to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA). From June 2016 to Dec. 1, 2017, the number of DBT machines in use grew from approximately 3,300 machines at 2,400 facilities, to 5,400 systems at 3,800 facilities.Unlike traditional 2-D mammograms, which result in only four images to analyze, DBT produces massive data sets comprised of hundreds of images. This requires radiologists spend significantly more time to review and interpret each breast exam. With more images to review for each patient, radiologists risk missing an important clue to early-stage cancer and have a harder time comparing mammography images from year to year. Considering that breast cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed, and deadly, cancers in American women — more than 325,000 new cases of invasive and in situ breast cancer were expected to be found this year alone — radiologists feel the pressure to not be wrong, or miss the signs of breast cancer in their patients. This alone adds to their daily stress and overall feelings of fatigue.Because there is no one panacea for radiologists’ burnout, practices must take several key steps to address this among radiologists. Demand for ultrasound scans at U.S. outpatient centers could grow by double digits over the next five years, according to a speaker at AHRA 2019. A variety of factors, however, could cause projections for this and other modalities to change.

FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 2. Set Daily PrioritiesWhether its finding the time to interpret the toughest cases, encouraging more peer-to-peer interaction or taking needed breaks, practices should encourage radiologists to set daily priorities and stick with them. For example, some radiologists may often feel so overwhelmed with the number of cases and quantity of images looming over them that they feel as if they cannot take a short break or head out for lunch. Simply encouraging them to build in a half hour each day to get away from their monitors and have lunch or coffee with coworkers can help radiologists gain a fresh perspective and escape the grind.

Low blood reserves threaten Costa Rica health care

first_imgFrom the print editionDuring emergencies, Costa Rican doctors in many cases must scramble to find blood donors.The lack of voluntary blood donations in the country has long been troubling for health officials. If a large highway accident occurred or a natural disaster took place, the head of the Central Blood Bank said Costa Rica likely would not have enough blood reserves to help victims.Only 56 percent of Costa Rica’s blood donations come from voluntary donors visiting a blood bank, Central Blood Bank President Erna Meléndez said. The country receives 35,000 voluntary donations per year, when hospitals require almost double that to be sufficient.As a result, when transfusions are needed, hospitals rely on less-efficient methods.“When there are special operations, like a transplant or an accident, we have to run and make a call for donations,” Meléndez said. “Here frequently you’ll see in the media, ‘Hospital X needs blood donors.’ This is evidence that the country doesn’t rely on an adequate  system to provide a reserve in cases of an emergency.”The problem with receiving donations from family – and the lack of voluntary blood donors as a whole – is that when people are compelled to donate because a family member or friend is ill complications can arise. A donor might not be healthy enough to give blood or might not be a match. Doctors are trying to change attitudes toward blood donation in the country. A bill in the Legislative Assembly called Ley Nacional de Sangre (National Blood Bill) would reorganize the way blood donations are done in the country. Health officials want national blood-donor campaigns, a more centralized system and better use of resources for “procurement, storage and distribution of blood products.” The Central Blood Bank has been holding blood drives at universities, imploring healthy donors to give this month. World Blood Donor Day was June 14. The next drive will be held June 27-28 at Universidad Latina’s Heredia campus, north of San José.Meléndez said foreigners can donate as long as they have residency in the country. Blood donors in Costa Rica must weigh more than 50 kilograms and be 18 years or older. Donors also will be interviewed about their medical history (a recent tattoo or piercing, for example, would disqualify a potential donor). Before making a donation, Meléndez recommends eating a light meal. The 10-minute procedure removes approximately 450 milliliters of blood, which the body replenishes the same day.Local campaigns have been successful, Meléndez said, but most Costa Ricans do not make regular blood donations a routine.“There still doesn’t exist a culture of donations, said Gerardo Solano, a doctor in the health care services unit at the Health Ministry. “It’s the same with organs too. More than anything, the [bill] is to promote donation, whether it’s organ donors or blood donors.”Solano, who sent the text of the bill to The Tico Times, highlighted that one of the main purposes of the legislation would be to organize national blood-donation campaigns and explain why donating is a necessary “public good.”One paragraph in the bill stresses this point, saying: “A society that is able to have enough volunteer blood donors will have a better quality of life, because to be a regular volunteer blood donor, it is necessary to maintain healthy lifestyles.”Costa Rica has 34 donation centers. Most are in public hospitals, although five private hospitals also have donation sites. These centers receive little promotion.In fact, Meléndez often needs to expose myths about blood transfusions to potential donors. She said some patients believe that donating blood can make a person gain weight or that doctors reuse equipment for withdrawing blood. The misinformation and lack of enthusiasm strains a country with limited blood supply and a shortage of voluntary donors.Said Meléndez: “The Central Blood Bank lives day by day.
