Catastrophic Dorian pounds Bahamas US evacuates coast

first_imgRiveria Beach (US): Hurricane Dorian battered the Bahamas with ferocious wind and rain on Sunday, the monstrous Category 5 storm wrecking towns and homes as it churned on an uncertain path toward the US coast where hundreds of thousands were ordered to evacuate. There was no immediate word on casualties in the low-lying islands. Packing sustained winds of 185 miles per hour (295 kph), Dorian crashed onshore in the Abacos Islands, in the northwest of the Bahamas, as the strongest storm ever to hit the Caribbean chain. Also Read – Saudi Crown Prince ‘snubbed’ Pak PM, recalled jet from US It was tied for the second most powerful hurricane ever in the Atlantic basin, the US National Weather Service said — with footage on social media showing major destruction from howling gusts of wind and pounding seawater. Parts of the Abacos were under water as forecasters warned they faced a towering 18 to 23 foot storm surge. Winds were gusting over 220 mph with no sign of weakening as the storm barreled west over the island of Grand Bahama, the National Hurricane Center in Miami said. Also Read – Record number of 35 candidates in fray for SL Presidential polls Video posted on the website of the Bahamian newspaper Tribune 242 showed water up to the roofs of wooden houses in what appeared to be a coastal town. Capsized boats floated in muddy brown water dotted with wooden boards, tree branches and other debris. In other social media footage of what appears to be an inland area, cars were smashed or turned over, telephone poles and trees were snapped like twigs and debris filled the yards of severely damaged homes. AFP could not immediately confirm the authenticity of the footage. After days of nerve-wracking uncertainty surrounding the storm’s path, the southeastern US states of Florida, Georgia and South Carolina finally ordered coastal residents to evacuate in a mass exodus set to affect hundreds of thousands of people. The NHC said the storm will be “dangerously close” to the Florida coast Monday night through Tuesday. On Sunday night, the eastern part of Grand Bahama was experiencing the eye wall of the storm. The NHC said the situation on that island was life-threatening and would only worsen overnight. “Do not leave your shelter as the eye passes over, as winds will rapidly increase on the other side of the eye,” the NHC warned in its 0200 GMT update. Bahamas Prime Minister Hubert Minnis broke down in tears as he addressed a news conference, calling it “probably the most sad and worst day of my life,” the Nassau Guardian reported. “We’re facing a hurricane… one that we’ve never seen in the history of the Bahamas,” he said. As of 0200 GMT, the storm was 60 miles (95 kilometers) east of Freeport on Grand Bahama and moving slowly west. “It feels like we are standing in a line waiting for a beating,” Yasmin Rigby, a resident of Freeport, the island’s main city, told AFP. A seemingly frantic post on the Facebook page of the fire department of Hope Town, a district of Abaco island, reported widespread destruction. It read in part like this: “Abaco inn lost villas G and H additional damage to inn as well Hope Town harbour lodge collapsed. Dan Sullivan house top of hill by inn lost roof sea spray gone house called tip of Tahiti gone.” NHC director Ken Graham said the Bahamas would be under major hurricane conditions for a punishing 30 hours or more — enduring roaring winds and torrential rainfall of 15 to 20 inches, even 30 inches in places. In Washington, President Donald Trump met with his emergency management chiefs and declared “this looks monstrous.” “We expect that much of the eastern seaboard will be ultimately impacted and some of it very, very severely,” he said. Florida issued its first evacuation orders in parts of Palm Beach, home of Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, and Martin Counties. South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster followed suit Sunday ordering mandatory evacuations of the state’s coast — affecting some 800,000 people — while Georgia gave orders to evacuate six coastal counties. Both orders take effect Monday at noon. “Given the strength and unpredictability of the storm, we must prepare for every possible scenario,” McMaster said. Neighboring North Carolina has also declared a state of emergency. Kevin McAleenan, acting homeland security secretary, said hurricane force winds could hit Florida, followed by a prolonged rain event combined with a storm surge. “That’s going to be very difficult as the storm starts to move northward,” he said on ABC’s “This Week.” Trump has declared a federal state of emergency in Florida, authorising US assistance to supplement state and local efforts. In southern Florida’s Jensen Beach, a mobile home park visited by AFP stood all but empty — its rickety dwellings boarded up with thin wood or metal sheets. Joe Lewis, a 61-year-old navy veteran — who is diabetic and disabled — was trying to prop up his air conditioner with a wooden post as he prepared to flee the storm’s path. “When I come back, this place may not be here,” he told AFP. “Mother Nature can be hell. I’ve seen it.” “There’s only one thing that’s important. It’s not what you own, it’s who you are, and your life. It doesn’t matter if I’ve got a million dollar home, I leave it. My life’s more important.”last_img read more

Robust regulation of information technology crucial for economic growth – UN

31 March 2011Effective regulation of the information and telecommunications technologies (ICTs) is crucial for overall economic growth, the United Nations telecommunications agency says in a report released today, stressing that setting rules and standards creates an enabling digital environment. In its 2010-2011 report on “Trends in Telecommunications Reform”, the UN International Telecommunication Union (ITU) notes that a robust and complex regulatory landscape has emerged in response to the tremendous influence ICTs have on the shape and growth of other economic sectors.At the beginning of this year, for example, more than 80 per cent of markets worldwide had separate ICT regulatory agencies, bringing the total to 158 ICT regulators worldwide, up from 106 just one decade ago, according to the report.“Because ICTs touch all aspects of society, when setting sound policies and regulation, the link between ICTs and major social issues like climate change, economic growth and digital lifestyles has to be taken into account,” said Brahima Sanou, the Director of ITU’s Telecommunication Development Bureau.“More than ever, it is vital to consider the appropriate scope of the ICT regulators’ mandate in creating an enabling digital world, a world where no citizen should be left out of the digital society,” Mr. Sanou says in a press release.The reports points out that ICT markets around the world are becoming more competitive in every respect, from international gateway services to wireless local loop and 3G. In 2010, for example, more than 93 per cent of countries worldwide allowed competition in the provision of Internet services, and 90 per cent in the provision of mobile cellular services. A further 92 per cent have competitive 3G mobile broadband markets.“ICTs are truly at the heart of everything we do,” said ITU Secretary-General Hamadoun Touré. “Technology is reshaping the lives of everyone – even those who still lack direct access themselves.”Worldwide, mobile cellular subscriptions now total more than 5.3 billion, including 940 million subscriptions to mobile broadband services – a figure which is expected to reach one billion before mid-2011, according to the report. Access to mobile networks is now available to 90 per cent of the world’s population. Eighty per cent of people in rural areas now have mobile cellular coverage.In terms of applications, at the end of last year, Facebook alone had 600 million active users, representing more than a third of Internet users worldwide. Forty per cent of active Facebook users accessed the platform through their mobile devices. The micro-blogging site Twitter now has over 200 million registered users, and 37 per cent of active Twitter users use their mobile device to “tweet”.Data also shows that two billion videos are watched every day on YouTube, while five billion photos are now hosted on Flickr.The report also stresses that broadband access is no longer a luxury, but a necessity that will be crucial to every country’s economic, social, and political growth, and calls for proactive national broadband planning by every government. read more

Charles and Anne at odds over GM crops Princess Royal says she

first_imgPrincess Anne said that genetic technology will be part of the producing food of the ‘right value’ Protests against GM crops in 2002 Anna Hill, the show’s presenter, asked the Princess, who is better known to the public as Princess Anne, whether she could see such crops being grown on her own land if permitted after Brexit. “Yes,” said the Princess Royal.In October, it was reported that genetically modified crops could be grown across England following Brexit, with George Eustice, the agriculture minister, confirming the government was looking at “possible future arrangements for the regulation of genetically modified organisms”.Only one GM product has been licensed since 1998 because of opposition to the technology across some European Union member states. “But if you pick the plants that are more likely to grow here easily, you’ll probably have to do less.”The full interview with the Princess Royal will be broadcast on BBC Radio 4’s Farming Today on Thursday at 5.45am. Her views appear at odds with Prince Charles’ concerns over GM “So being able to understand what those changes mean: if you change one aspect of a plant, how does it affect the rest of the environment around it and does it have a long-term impact? Her views appear at odds with Prince Charles' concerns over GM “That’s probably a very long term impact and we may not see that for a long time.”So to say ‘no we mustn’t go there just in case’ is probably not a practical argument.”I do think in the future your gene technology has got real benefits to offer, which will have maybe an occasionally downside, but I suspect not very many.” Princess Anne at the Whatley Manor Horse trials, Gatcombecenter_img In an interview with Radio 4’s Farming Today, in a programme to be broadcast in full on Thursday, the Princess Royal acknowledged that GM is “one of those things that divides people”.”But surely if we’re going to be better at producing food of the right value, then we have to accept that genetic technology – whether you call it modification or anything else – is going to be part of that,” she said.”How you define what is harmful or what is good, it seems to me rather more difficult.”Most of us would argue that we’ve been genetically modifying food since man started to be agrarian.

The Princess Royal said: “I have rare breed livestock so genetic modification would be a bonus if I could just find a way of making them a little more robust in terms of survivability. In a way that’s long-term investment.”Are there downsides? Yes, we’ve seen with some breeds of cattle sometimes there really are downsides.”Referring to plants, she added: “I don’t see the problem in saying, ‘well is there something we could do to improve their abilities to grow in this country slightly better than they were, with the things they suffer from’.

He added that he had taken care of his son from birth and will continue to support him although he is an adult now.Attorney-at-law Latchmi Rahamat, who has been assigned as the Special Prosecutor in the matter had stated that a male relative of the accused visited Baljeet’s residence to settle the matter.Meanwhile, the court also heard that the matter is still be investigated by police.It was disclosed that Baljeet is scheduled to return to the hospital since the injuries that the disabled man received was recorded as life threatening.The 37-year-old Khan was arrested after he was reportedly seen on Closed Circuit Television (CCTV) footage beating ‘Short Boss’ on October 28, 2018 outside the Main Street, Georgetown club.Khan’s Attorney, Glenn Hanoman, on his first court appearance questioned the charge that was instituted against his client. “This was a fight, not attempted murder,” the lawyer had told the court in a bail application.The week prior to his appearance, Khan’s brother, 37-year-old Safraz Khan was brought before the said court on gun-related charges, which occurred on the same morning.

German mining equipment manufacturers have come out of recession

first_imgGermany’s mining equipment manufacturers have come out of recession. Following a decline in turnover of some 21% down to €2.8 billion this year, the sector foresees stabilization in 2017. In 2018, things should pick up once again.Looking domestically, a decline in turnover of 36% down to €210 million is anticipated for this year. Revenue abroad will fall by some 21% to €2.6 billion was the estimate given by President of the Mining Association at VDMA [Mechanical Engineering Industry Association], Dr Michael Schulte Strathaus, at the annual press conference at the Zeche Zollverein in Essen.However, mining equipment manufacturers believe that this will bring an end to the days of sometime two-figure declines in turnover. The reasons are the rising raw material prices and a newly growing willingness to invest in the raw materials industry. The prices have broadly recovered, says Schulte Strathaus. In the third quarter of this year, the mining equipment manufacturers registered a 12% increase in incoming orders in comparison to the same period the previous year. The respective index rose over the same period from 61 to 80 points. However, the period from the receipt of an order to its settlement can run up to 15 months, says Schulte Strathaus. The renewed increase in turnover can therefore be anticipated in early 2018.Despite this not exactly simple situation, the companies have succeeded in maintaining a steady workforce size that is currently 12,000 employees . “Our member companies have, by dint of strenuous efforts, kept their permanent staff,” says Schulte Strathaus. Changes are not planned. He ascribes the domestic decline in turnover to some €210 million primarily to missing contracts in the hard coal industry – the last hard coal mine will be closed in 2018.Germany operates an energy policy that is fragmented, unpredictable and, from an energy-economy perspective, not always comprehensible, Schulte Strathaus notes. Although there is no ready substitute at hand, the energy supply safeguarded by brown coal is being undermined. “A lack of planning and exaggerated campaigning, which set out national environmental requirements which go far beyond European and international agreements, are running the show,” says Schulte Strathaus. The bill for all this ends up being paid for by mechanical engineering companies in the form of fewer contracts, and first and foremost by citizens in the form of rising electricity prices. Costs and benefits in the energy policies run by the German government are “out of reasonable proportions”. What the politicians are missing is a sensible plan. Too much reacting and too little action is taking place. The sector anticipates a further fall in revenue in the domestic market in the year ahead.The largest export market for German mining equipment manufacturers is the EU. Approximately 20% of the exports go there. Robust business is being done in particular with the UK, Italy and France. That demand is in particular for machinery used in tunnel construction. At a minimum similar turnover is assumed for the coming year. Schulte Strathaus also reports robust business with Turkey. In terms of raw materials, the country is increasingly investing in self-sufficiency in order to reinforce its economic foundations and to reduce its dependence on imports from abroad. This is relevant with respect to energy supply from coal as well as to manufacturing industrial metals.According to Schulte Strathaus, the second most important turnover region – with a share of 11% of total exports – is Africa, Northern Africa in particular. Since 2014, exports to this region have almost tripled. The largest markets are Egypt and Algeria. Sales are based first and foremost on machinery and plants related to infrastructure projects. The third largest market is the USA, taking about 10% of exports. Sales are based mainly on processing technology and excavating machinery.  Schulte Strathaus expressed doubts as to whether mines will continue to close and coal mining will continuously be reduced under the new President Donald Trump. Trump has not only promised to preserve jobs in this sector, but to even create new ones. The mechanical engineering companies assume that their share of export to the USA will expand in the coming year.Schulte Strathaus considers the increasing diversification in companies to be positive. New products are increasingly brought onto the market and new export regions are also being established. Meanwhile, virtually all the renowned manufacturers are offering machinery for hard rock mining. This is resonating positively among purchasers on the whole. Schulte Strathaus announced a Europe-wide networking of companies. Thus, it should become possible among other things to bring new products onto the market together, with greater impact.Dr Michael Schulte Strathaus, President of the VDMA Mining Association accuses the German government of running an energy policy wherein costs and benefits “are out of every reasonable proportion”last_img read more

C’est la somme astronomique que la Nasa a versé à quatre entreprises américaines capables de proposer, dans les prochaines années, un lanceur et une capsule qui permettraient d’envoyer des astronautes vers la Station spatiale internationale (ISS). C’est la compagnie Boeing qui a obtenu la plus grosse part (92,3 millions de dollars). De leur côté, Sierra Nevada Corporation, Space Exploration Technologies (SpaceX) et Blue Origin ont respectivement reçue 80 millions, 75 millions et 22 millions de dollars.La Nasa souhaite ainsi accélérer le développement d’un système commercial de lancements de vaisseaux et d’envois d’astronautes vers l’ISS. Grâce à ce partenariat, l’Agence spatiale américaine espère réduire la période au cours de laquelle les Etats-Unis dépendront des Soyouz russes, période qui débute en juin prochain.”Nous avons l’engagement de transporter en toute sécurité les astronautes américains dans des vaisseaux faits aux Etats-Unis et de mettre fin à la sous-traitance de ce service à des gouvernements étrangers”, a clairement indiqué Charles Bolden, le patron de la Nasa. “Ces accords [avec le secteur privé] représentent des étapes importantes dans la stratégie de la Nasa pour tirer profit de l’ingéniosité américaine pour voler sur orbite basse”, a-t-il ajouté. Ce faisant, la Nasa conserve suffisamment de temps et d’argent pour se consacrer aux missions d’exploration de l’espace lointain.Le 19 avril 2011 à 14:59 • Emmanuel Perrinlast_img read more

Les réseaux sociaux font exploser le nombre dusurpations didentité

first_imgLes réseaux sociaux font exploser le nombre d’usurpations d’identitéLes réseaux sociaux sont devenus le terrain privilégié des hackers qui sévissent en quête d’usurpation d’identité. Un phénomène qui a largement explosé ces derniers mois.Le développement des réseaux sociaux tels que Facebook ou Twitter fait le bonheur des hackers. Selon un rapport établi par Microsoft auprès de 600 millions d’ordinateurs dans le monde, l'”usurpation d’identité via les réseaux sociaux représentait en décembre dernier 84,5% de toutes les usurpations d’identité détectées, contre 8,3% en janvier 2010″. À lire aussiVaricelle, perturbateurs endocriniens et Facebook, les actus sciences que vous devez connaître ce 13 juinBernard Ourghanlian, directeur technique et sécurité pour Microsoft France indique à l’AFP la raison d’un tel essor : “Cela s’explique par le succès des réseaux sociaux et le fait que les cybercriminels vont là où on peut avoir un accès facile à des utilisateurs. Et pour cela, les réseaux sociaux sont une véritable mine”. Selon lui il existe deux profils types de hackers : d’une part des professionnels rémunérés par des mafias ou des officines d’État qui piratent de façon ciblée certaines informations, d’autre part des personnes qui attaquent sans distinction dans l’objectif de se faire de l’argent. Quoi qu’il en soit, les réseaux sociaux représentent pour ces deux catégories un important intérêt “l’un pour avoir une connaissance de la hiérarchie ou des structures de réseaux d’amis des personnes concernées, et l’autre pour voler des informations classiques du type numéro de carte bleue ou mots de passe”.Le piratage par “phishing” en hausse Le rapport d’octobre 2010 de Symantec relève également une nette augmentation des attaques par phishing, des techniques de piratage privilégiant la manipulation des internautes plutôt que des éventuelles failles informatiques. Ces techniques jouent principalement sur la crainte des internautes par des messages qui émanent un faux sentiment de confiance. C’est le cas par exemple de mails proposant des pseudo-logiciels de sécurité. Selon l’étude, le recours à ces méthodes aurait augmenté de 52% au cours du mois dernier. Les réseaux sociaux ne sont pas épargnés et un accroissement de 38% des cas d’usurpation d’identité a été relevé sur la même période de temps.L’explosion de ce phénomène est actuellement au cœur de l’attention des autorités assignées à la protection des internautes. “Très souvent, il faut relativement peu de choses pour se protéger, et ce sont des conseils de bon sens : comme la mise à jour des antivirus et des logiciels, ou encore ne pas donner trop d’informations sur les réseaux sociaux”, explique Bernard Ourghanlian. La Commission nationale de l’informatique et des libertés (CNIL) a quant à elle publié un guide complet sur la sécurisation des données personnelles dans l’entreprise. Pour réduire les risques d’usurpation d’identité et de fuites de données, la commission recommande  de restreindre les accès, d’attribuer des identifiants uniques et de combiner plusieurs méthodes d’authentification (comme par exemple le mot de passe et le système de carte à puce).

Return of City Hall to downtown core largely fulfills pioneers vision

first_imgWith Vancouver’s City Hall back downtown, it’s all as Esther Short planned.The famous namesake of the state’s oldest city park actually intended for the area to be a town plaza, with a post office, city hall and other important buildings centered around the green space, said Pat Jollota, local historian and former city council member.“When she died, she left that piece of property there to be a town plaza,” Jollota said. “Not a park, but a plaza.” It’s been a shade less than 50 years since City Hall was in the downtown core, and with the rest of the revitalization around the park, Jollota said the area’s now more like a plaza than it’s ever been.“I call this her vision, because of the word ‘plaza’ that she used,” she said. “In 1860, it had a very definite meaning. I think she would have liked the post office there, too, but, oh well, it didn’t happen.”Neighborhood leaders also are heralding the move to a six-story, LEED gold-certified building at 415 W. Sixth St. as a way to bring even more feet to downtown streets.“It’s kind of a full circle type thing, (Esther Short Park) started as the center of everything, and now, it’s coming back to be the center of everything again,” Esther Short Neighborhood Association President Paula Person said.last_img read more

Foxs new sitcom Son of Zorn is reverse Cool World with barbarians

first_imgDo you like a little live-action situation comedy mixed in with your retro ’80s animation? Then Christopher Miller and Phil Lord’s upcoming Fox show Son of Zorn looks to be right up your alley.So, here are the basics. The animated Zorn (voiced by Jason Sudeikis) returns from a trip to a mysterious island to try and win back his ex-wife Edie (Cheryl Hines), and also spark up a relationship with his son Alangulon (Johnny Pemberton). This doesn’t go quite as planned, because Edie’s now engaged to Craig (Tim Meadows) and Alan prefers a more relaxed environment than the ultra-masculine one his dad thrives in. To show how dedicated he is to making things right with his family, Zorn rents an apartment nearby and scores a job as an assistant for Linda (Artemis Pebdani) at an industrial soap company.Lord and Miller continue to add interesting projects to their resume. They broke out with the animated feature Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs before working on the 21 Jump Street films and The Lego Movie. They previously created the MTV animated series Clone High, which didn’t last long, but created legions of fans. Their Last Man on Earth currently airs on Fox with the latest season featuring Sudeikis as a new character fallen from space to a mostly decimated Earth. Now, Lord and Miller will mix that knowledge of animation and comedy with Son of Zorn.It’s an awesomely weird idea for a show — basically He-Man as a fish out of water in the modern world — but that’s what Miller and Lord do so well. No one thought The Lego Movie would be as good as it is, or that a 21 Jump Street reboot would be fun, but here we are living in a world where both of those statements are true. We’ll see if Son of Zorn continues that streak when the show debuts this fall.last_img read more

Fallout 4 mod adds terrifying Macho Man Randy Savage monsters to the

first_imgFallout 4 has taken some heat for continuing to use Bethesda’s aging Creation game engine, but the upshot of that is all the easy modding that can be done on the PC version of the game. Case in point, there’s a Fallout 4 mod that turns Deathclaws into terrifying, monstrous versions of Macho Man Randy Savage. They will mess you up — oooooh yeah!In Fallout games, Deathclaws are one of the most powerful non-boss enemies you’ll face. These creatures are heavily mutated Jackson Chameleons, originally created by the government prior to the Great War that resulted in the end of civilization. They have long, powerful arms with slashing claws and can close considerable distances with a leap.Even those who have never watched professional wrestling are probably familiar with the mannerisms of the one and only Randy Savage. From the over-the-top showmanship to the raspy voice and catchphrases, you’ll recognize the late Mr. Savage in these inhuman post-apocalyptic monsters.This mod makes a few tweaks to the superficial design of Deathaclaws, adding a Macho Man hat/face, a less reptilian body, and humanoid hands. It’s a delightfully disturbing combination of traits. It wouldn’t be Macho Man without the catchphrases, of course, and this mod delivers. As the Macho Claw is tearing you apart, it will shout traditional Machoisms. This is becoming a bit of a tradition in Bethesda games; there was a Skyrim mod that turned the dragons into flying Macho Man creatures.And so, Macho Man Randy Savage lives on in our hearts, but also our video games. You can grab the Macho Claws mod from Nexus Mods.last_img read more

The MRI images are analyzed using morphometry and tractography techniques, which detect changes in the shape and dimensions of the brain and in the tissue microstructure, respectively. In this example, the images show the normal brain of an elderly patient. Image courtesy of Jiook Cha.September 20, 2018 — New research has shown a combination of two different modes of magnetic resonance imaging (MRI), computer-based analysis and image classification using machine learning models may be promising in accurately predicting Alzheimer’s disease risk.Nearly 50 million people worldwide have Alzheimer’s disease or another form of dementia. These irreversible brain disorders slowly cause memory loss and destroy thinking skills, eventually to such an extent that self-care becomes very difficult or impossible.While no cure currently exists, certain medications can delay the progression of symptoms for several years, extending the quality of life for patients. However, in order for these medications to be effective, the disease must be diagnosed at an early stage, before the symptoms of cognitive decline become apparent. Current research suggests that the brain damage associated with Alzheimer’s likely starts a decade or more prior to symptom onset. Reliable screening tools for predicting individuals at risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease are urgently needed.The new research into early disease classification comes from a team from the U.S. Department of Energy’s (DOE) Brookhaven National Laboratory, Columbia University Medical Center, Stony Brook University and Ilsan Hospital in South Korea.“Such multimodal imaging analysis can enhance predictive power by identifying key diagnostic markers of the disease,” said team member Shinjae Yoo, a computational scientist in Brookhaven Lab’s Computational Science Initiative.Previous MRI studies in which scientists analyzed the shape and dimensions (morphometry) of the brain have revealed that Alzheimer’s disease involves characteristic changes in the brain’s anatomy. For example, thinning of the cortex and shrinking of the hippocampus — both brain structures that play an important role in memory — are diagnostic markers of Alzheimer’s. Although structural MRI is routinely used as part of the clinical assessment when someone is suspected of having the disease, it lacks the level of accuracy and generalizability across patient populations to stand by itself as a reliable predictive tool.Within the past decade, scientists have started investigating whether a different mode of MRI — called diffusion MRI — could provide additional information for physicians to improve predictive power. Diffusion MRI captures how water molecules move around in biological tissues, and mapping this diffusion process can reveal subtle changes in tissue microstructure.Using diffusion MRI, scientists have found abnormalities in the white matter — a type of brain tissue — in patients with Alzheimer’s disease. White matter, which lies beneath the cortex, consists of millions of bundled nerve fibers (axons) that connect neurons in different gray matter regions of the brain — a structured network that runs like tracts of communication cables across the brain. The white color comes from the fatty layer of electrical insulation (myelin) that coats the axons, allowing them to more quickly send nerve impulses across the brain. Gray matter has relatively few myelinated axons, so it takes on the color of the nerve cell bodies it is composed of.The majority of Alzheimer’s research to date has focused on gray matter degeneration, but because of recent advances in computational modeling tools, scientists are turning their attention toward white matter. For example, improvements in algorithms for tractography — a computational method to reconstruct white matter tracts from biophysical models of nerve fiber orientations — are enabling more accurate estimations of the microstructure of white matter.Preliminary research suggests that the integrity of white matter declines in those at risk for Alzheimer’s disease. On MRI scans, the degeneration appears as bright white spots called hyperintensities. However, scientists are unsure to what extent the white matter “structural connectome” — the brain’s wiring system, or the unique pattern of connections between the billions of neurons in the brain — carries additional information for Alzheimer’s risk beyond what is shown by morphometry analysis based on structural MRI.Yoo and his team set out to address this question, using structural and diffusion MRI images that were collected from a group of more than 200 elderly patients who visited a dementia clinic at Ilsan Hospital. Neurologists had already diagnosed these patients with Alzheimer’s disease, mild cognitive impairment (the stage between dementia and the expected cognitive decline from normal aging), or subjective cognitive decline (thought to be the earliest sign of dementia, in which patients report a decline in memory or other cognitive functions but perform normally on standard screening tests).To process and analyze the raw images, the team members designed a rigorous pipeline consisting of several existing algorithms. Next, they applied machine learning, also known as artificial intelligence (AI), to train image-derived classification models on the brain “phenotypes” resulting from their analysis — estimations of brain shapes and volumes (morphometric data) and of white matter structural connectivity (tractography data) in patients from each diagnostic category. They then used the models to make predictions of diagnosis.“In one study using data from a dementia clinic, we achieved up to 98 percent accuracy in detecting Alzheimer’s disease and 84 percent accuracy in predicting mild cognitive impairment, the precursor to Alzheimer’s,” said team member Jiook Cha, a research scientist and assistant professor of neurobiology in the Department of Psychiatry at Columbia University Medical Center. “The accuracy of our machine learning models trained on brain connectome estimates surpassed that of existing imaging-based markers used in clinical settings (e.g., white matter hyperintensities) by 10 and 29 percent, respectively. Using independent data from the Alzheimer’s Disease Neuroimaging Initiative, we replicated these results.”By comparing the performance of their different machine learning models, the team members determined that the structural connectome may be a clinically useful imaging marker for Alzheimer’s disease.“The model trained on both morphometric and connectome data more accurately classified Alzheimer’s disease and mild cognitive impairment than the model trained on morphometric data alone,” explained Yoo. “In addition, the connectome model classified mild cognitive impairment and subjective cognitive decline as accurately as the combined model — unlike the morphometry model, which did not classify accurately.”  These results suggest that diffusion MRI could be a valuable tool in the early detection of Alzheimer’s disease. Neuroscientists believe that mild cognitive impairment and subjective cognitive decline are precursors to Alzheimer’s, so abnormal changes in white matter that are detected in these preclinical stages could indicate patients who are at an increased risk of eventually developing Alzheimer’s. The ability to identify such microscopic changes years before more severe macroscopic changes set in could lead to better treatments and possibly even a cure.“This study strongly indicates the feasibility of using multimodal MRI — particularly diffusion MRI–based analysis of the structural connectome — to accurately predict Alzheimer’s risk,” said Cha.Follow-on studies based on retrospective patient data will further assess whether this approach could be implemented in clinical settings.For more information: www.bnl.gov FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Neuro Imaging | August 07, 2019 Synaptive Medical Launches Modus Plan With Automated Tractography Segmentation Synaptive Medical announced the U.S. launch and availability of Modus Plan featuring BrightMatter AutoSeg.

Survey Americans Stymied by Homebuying Confusion

first_img September 15, 2014 599 Views Share While nearly seven in 10 Americans agree that now is a good time to become a homeowner, a large number remain reluctant due to their own misguided understanding of the financing process, according to survey results released Monday.In a poll of more than 2,000 consumers, Wells Fargo found 68 percent feel that now is a good time to buy a home, and 95 percent want to own if they don’t already.The results jibe with Fannie Mae’s latest consumer housing survey, in which 64 percent of Americans said now is a good time to buy (matching the survey’s record low).”Although the homebuying process has changed in many ways in recent years ,our survey found Americans still view homeownership as an achievement to be proud of and many believe that now is a good time to buy a home,” said Franklin Codel, head of Wells Fargo Home Mortgage Production.On the other hand, while nearly three-quarters of respondents in Wells Fargo’s survey said they “know and understand” the financial process involved in buying a home, large numbers also expressed doubt or misguided notions about homebuying requirements. For example, Wells Fargo reported, 30 percent of respondents expressed belief that only people with high incomes can obtain a mortgage at this point, and 64 percent said they believe only those with a “very good” credit score can buy a home right now.While 64 percent of respondents said they have an understanding about how much of a down payment is needed to purchase a home, nearly half said 20 percent is required. Forty-four percent also said they know little or nothing about closing costs.While most lenders report that lending requirements at the moment are still high as a result of enhanced regulations and reluctance to take risks, Codel says lenders would be well served to work on educating homebuyers about all programs available to them—especially the millennial crowd, most of which pointed to lack of down payment funds as one of their biggest hurdles to homeownership.”It is important for prospective homebuyers to feel empowered to ask lenders and real estate agents questions about available options, such as down payment assistance or FHA [Federal Housing Administration] or VA [Veterans Affairs] loans for veterans,” he said. “Informing prospective homebuyers about their options is the first step toward helping them realize their goals.”On the other hand, the survey also found most Americans are confident in managing their personal finances, with 82 percent saying they know how to save, invest, and work within a budget. In addition, 63 percent said they have a “rainy day fund,” including more than half of millennial-aged respondents.With so many Americans focused on keeping their financial houses in order, Codel says there’s a decent opportunity to turn those consumers into responsible homeowners with an educational push.”[W]e have an opportunity as lenders, nonprofit agencies and real estate agents to better inform Americans about credit ratings, mortgage costs and housing affordability,” he said. “This would help demystify the homebuying experience for many consumers.” Survey: Americans Stymied by Homebuying Confusioncenter_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Headlines, News Down Payments First-Time Homebuyers Wells Fargo 2014-09-15 Tory Barringerlast_img read more

Anastasiades pledges €35m in projects for Famagusta Updated

first_imgPresident Nicos Anastasiades on Monday pledged new government-funded projects of around €35 million for the Famagusta district.Following a meeting with mayors, local council leaders, MPs and other officials from the district, Anastasiades said that €32.2 million was spent for projects in the area from 2013 to 2016, while the 2017 budget included €23.3m.“Through cooperation between the government, parliament and social partners, and through the sacrifices of the Cypriot people, we have managed to restore the credibility of the state and the financial system, and create conditions of stability and growth rates ranking among the highest in the European Union,” the president said in a speech.The announcement followed similar pledges made in June for the Paphos district, for new projects worth €60m, and in July for Larnaca and Limassol, at €70m each.Among the new projects announced on Monday, Anastasiades pledged €3.2m for the refurbishment of the Paralimni high school and the extension of the Ayia Napa public primary school, and €300,000 for the maintenance and upgrading of the bicycle lanes from Ayia Napa to Cavo Greco.In Derynia, the president said a kindergarten worth €400,000 will be built, along with a volleyball court worth €155,000.The upgrading of the Derynia-Sotira road, Anastasiades said, will cost €11m.He referred to the cabinet’s July decision for the government to shoulder municipalities’ government-guaranteed loans, which is expected to rid Famagusta local authorities of “loans totalling €8.2m”.In addition, the president said he was “particularly satisfied” with the progress of “one of the largest investments that will substantially boost tourism regionally”, namely the Ayia Napa marina, and added that “plans to develop marine tourism are supplemented by the Paralimni marina, the cost of which is estimated at €100m”.Anastasiades said he would be “particularly happy if we, as a government, could afford to grant all the requests submitted by municipalities or local councils”.“But I am certain that no one is ignoring what the economic situation was when we took over the government, and to what extent we responded as soon as was possible to the multiple problems facing our municipalities and local councils,” he said.Reviewing the projects undertaken for the district’s municipalities since 2015, Anastasiades listed the building of the Famagusta District Court in Paralimni, at €5.5m, the upgrading of the Paralimni technical school at a cost of €2.3m, and the construction of a sports arena by the Paralimni municipality, which required €1.5m.With regard to local communities, Anastasiades listed the restoration of the fishing shelter at the Liopetri river, at a cost of €5m, the improvement of Karion avenue in Avgorou, a €4.3m project, the construction of a multi-purpose hall at the Avgorou elementary school for €330,000, and the creation of the Achna public kindergarten at €344,000.Famagusta’s local government officials welcomed Anastasiades’ pledges and noted that the government is finally viewing the district – part of which has been Turkish-held since 1974 – on a par with the rest of the districts.“Staying the course since 2015, when Famagusta was first acknowledged as an equal to the others, is particularly pleasing for us,” said Paralimni mayor Theodoros Pyrillis.“There are delays and minor issues, but we choose to see the big picture, which is the projects coming to the district, particularly the Ayia Napa and Paralimni marinas and the road networks in the district. We feel that we are drawing breaths, comparing how we were treated over the last four years relative to the previous 40.”Pyrillis said he hopes that Anastasiades will continue his work by “solving the Cyprus problem, so that we can return to our beloved metropolis”.You May LikeDr. Marty ProPower Plus Supplement3 Dangerous Foods People Feed Their Dogs (Without Realizing It)Dr. Marty ProPower Plus SupplementUndoUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementAdd This One Thing To Your Dog’s Food To Help Them Be HealthierUltimate Pet Nutrition Nutra Thrive SupplementUndoPopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoOur View: Argaka mukhtar should not act as if he owns the beachUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
