first_imgThe City’s Communications Coordinator Ryan Harvey said that the sewer upgrades were supposed to have been started earlier this year, but a number of multi-government agencies at multiple levels – including Transport Canada – needed to give their approval for the City’s plans.Harvey wasn’t able to say whether the sewer replacement would be completed before the end of the year, or whether the delay would cause the City to postpone widening 100th St. up to the East Bypass Road until 2020. FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – The City of Fort St. John is now accepting tender submissions for sewer upgrades along 100th St. under the CN Rail tracks near Northern Lights College.The work, which involves installing 200 metres of 1.5-metre diameter storm main under the CN Rail tracks at the north end of 100th St. is part of the City’s plans to widen the road next summer.The City had originally planned to continue widening the road this summer, but during 2018 Capital Budget discussions, the City postponed that work until 2019 so that the storm drain near NLC could be replaced and upgraded.last_img read more


Instead, he said the domestic mechanism will be setup by next month and the local laws will deal with those accused of human rights abuses. “We need to brief the Human Rights Council in September on the domestic mechanism. So the mechanism will be in place by June. We will ensure our sovereignty is protected in the human rights investigation,” Sirisena said. (Colombo Gazette) “We have had talks with the UN on the investigations. As a government we have told them we will not agree foreign investigators coming into Sri Lanka. However we will take advice from the UN and conduct a domestic investigation,” the President said.The Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights is expected to submit a report on Sri Lanka to the UN Human Rights Council at its September session. The domestic mechanism to investigate allegations over the war will be in place by June, President Maithripala Sirisena said.Speaking to media heads today, the President said that international investigators will not be allowed into Sri Lanka to investigate the war. read more


Rising household debt leading to spike in insolvency filings, bankruptcies in Alberta The tough times in Alberta aren’t coming to an end any time soon, as companies continue to downsize, leaving many residents in the financial lurch.Statistics released Wednesday show there has been a 28.3 per cent increase in insolvency filings from July 2014, the number of bankruptcies rose 19.3 per cent and offers to creditors to settle debts soared 36.1 per cent.Credit counsellor Nadia Graham says this is the busiest she’s ever been in her 33 year career in the financial services industry.She says the big difference between downturns in the 1980s and the 2000s compared to now is that people are carrying much more debt.“They’re getting in trouble faster,” she said. “There’s also a lot more people acting as contractors or who are self-employed and they don’t have the same kind of safety nets people who are employees of a company have.”The fallout has been multi-layered.“Not only layoffs in oil and gas, but it ripples out to the economy as a whole,” she said. “Hotel employees aren’t getting the meeting rooms booked and the catering jobs and the furniture salespeople aren’t getting their commission.”She adds Albertans’ investments are hurting as well because the stock market is down, along with the Canadian dollar.Graham explains in many ways credit has become too easy to acquire, pointing out when she used to work for banks the question was always, “Can this person afford another credit card? Can this client afford another line of credit?”, and they would often tell clients when they were getting in over their heads.She says now the focus is on sales, and banks feel the responsibility is on the client to manage their own financial affairs. by Jonathan Muma Posted Oct 1, 2015 7:53 am MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email SANJA GJENERO/FREEIMAGES.COM read more

first_imgAirtel Payments BankTwitterThis week India’s fifth payments bank-Jio Payments Bank-has commenced its operations in the country. In 2015, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) paved the way for payments banks in India after giving in principle approval to 11 entities for starting payments banks.A payments bank is different from commercial banks. While commercial banks in India can lend payments banks cannot lend. However, customers can open a savings account in them with deposits of up to Rs 1 lakh. Have a look at India’s payments banks and it’s key features:1. Airtel Payments BankConsidered to be the first payment bank in the country, Airtel Payments Bank offers a 7.25 percent interest rate on savings accounts. Currently, when compared to other large and small commercial banks, Airtel Payments Bank is offering the highest return on a savings account. The bank is a fully digital and paperless bank and the account holders are able to operate accounts using the mobile app only. Airtel Payments Bank customers would also get access to a MasterCard powered online card.2. Paytm Payments BankVijay Shekhar Sharma-promoted Paytm Payments Bank began operations in May 2017. The bank is offering a 4 percent interest rate on savings account. Paytm Payments Bank supports online fund transfer services such as Immediate Payment Service (IMPS), Unified Payment Interface (UPI) and National Electronic Fund Transfer (NEFT).3. Fino Payments BankBacked by Fino Paytech Limited the Fino Payments Bank Limited was incorporated in April 2017. Apart from payment features, the bank also offers the savings account, current account and small loan facility to the customers. For opening a Current Account of an individual for business purpose with Fino Payments Bank, only Aadhar number and customer mobile number is required. The bank offers 4 percent interest rate on savings.4. India Post Payments BankIndian Postal Department’s India Post Payments Bank has not yet started full-fledged operations in the country. It has started pilot services in Raipur and Ranchi in 2017 and is expected to expand operations across the country by this year. The bank is providing 5.5 percent interest on deposits depending on the amount. India Post Payments Bank provides a debit card for free to customers with a card maintenance fee of Rs 100 that applies from the second year.5. Jio Payments BankThe newest entry into the club, Reliance Industries Limited backed Jio Payments Bank Limited started operations Tuesday, April 3. It is a joint venture between RIL and State Bank of India. Jio Payments Bank’s interest rates on deposits are yet to be announced. H Srikrishnan, former head of Transactional Banking and Operations of HDFC Bank and Yes Bank is the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of the bank.last_img read more


first_imgMark Lennihan/APFormer U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., leaves federal court following his sentencing on Monday in New York.A federal judge has sentenced disgraced former U.S. Rep. Anthony Weiner to 21 months in prison for sending obscene messages to a 15-year-old girl last year.The sexting case played a role in the 2016 presidential election. Weiner’s wife, Huma Abedin, who has filed for divorce, was a top aide to Hillary Clinton.Weiner pleaded guilty in New York federal court in May to the felony charge over transmitting sexually explicit messages to the North Carolina teenager as part of a plea agreement. As The Associated Press reported, he said at the time: “I have a sickness, but I do not have an excuse.”And as he heard U.S. District Judge Denise Cote pass sentence, Weiner “dropped his head into his hand and wept,” the news service says, adding that the New York Democrat must “surrender to prison officials by Nov. 6.”Prosecutors had sought a sentence of up to 27 months in prison, calling his conduct “very serious.”Weiner was aware that the victim was a high school student, according to court documents, yet he continued to exchange increasing lewd messages with her.“With full knowledge that he was communicating with a real 15-year-old girl, the defendant asked her to engage in sexually explicit conduct via Skype and Snapchat, where her body was on display, and where she was asked to sexually perform for him.”NPR’s Camila Domonoske has reported on Weiner’s history of sexting scandals:“In 2011, while serving in Congress, he accidentally tweeted to the world a photo of his boxer-clad erection. He initially claimed he was hacked before admitting he was trying to send it to a woman who was not his wife. It was the start of a spiraling scandal that tanked his political career and often brought a sense of deja vu to the news.“Again and again, he sent sexual messages to women, despite promising his family and his supporters that he would stop. Last year, he even sent salacious images of himself to a woman while his young son was next to him in bed — and visible in the shot. …“The sexting case unexpectedly played a prominent role in the election, after investigators looking into Weiner’s laptop found some of Abedin’s work emails.“Shortly before the election, then-FBI Director James Comey announced that the newly discovered emails needed to be examined, as part of the investigation of Clinton’s use of a private email server. After reopening the probe, the FBI determined the emails on Weiner’s computer did not change the agency’s decision that no charges should be brought against Clinton.”Copyright 2017 NPR.

first_imgKolkata: About 12 kg of smuggled gold valued at Rs 3.7 crore was seized in two separate operations and seven persons were arrested, an official said on Monday. Acting on a tip off, personnel of the Directorate of Revenue Intelligence intercepted three persons at Burrabazar, one of Asia’s biggest wholesale markets, in central Kolkata and recovered 53 gold biscuits having a foreign marking, weighing 6.18 kg and valued at 1.68 crore. “Gold biscuits were hidden in the shoes,” the official said. The gold biscuits were smuggled into India from Bangladesh through Bangaon, an Indo-Bangladesh border town in North 24 Parganas. The men were in a car. “Three persons and the driver of the car have been arrested,” a DRI official said. Also Read – Heavy rain hits traffic, flightsThree of the accused have been remanded to judicial custody for 14 days. In another case, one person was apprehended from a bus plying between Kolkata and Khulna (Bangladesh) at Kaikhali in North 24 Parganas by DRI officials. The driver and the supervisor of the bus were also arrested for smuggling the gold from Bangladesh. A total of 5.55 kg of gold of foreign origin, valued at Rs 1.75 crore, was recovered from the person’s shoe and a belt tied around his waist, a DRI official said.last_img read more


first_img Editor’s Note: In this series, we take you inside the mind of Nicolas Cary, CEO of the popular Bitcoin wallet service Blockchain.info, for his expert insights on the latest Bitcoin news and trends.It’s been a rocky road for Bitcoin over the last few months. Mt. Gox fell. Hackers hemorrhaged Silk Road 2. The feds taxed it. Dark Wallet cast a pall.    Now what? Leave the bad Bitcoin news in the dust and charge ahead on the good foot.  This seems to be the optimistic, fighter attitude of Nicolas Cary, the ebullient CEO of Blockchain.info, a U.K.-based Bitcoin wallet and block information service.Related: Why Bitcoin is Better Than Other CurrenciesThe Denver, Colo., native sees a bright, “bullish” future for the world’s first digital currency, even if it’s still widely misunderstood and regularly garners negative headlines.Bitcoin’s future is so bright, Cary says, that many of us will save money because of the controversial cybercurrency in the near future — even if you don’t own a single BTC.We talked to Cary about the pioneering, widely misunderstood digital cash and why he has such high hopes for it, particularly as a frictionless payment network. Here’s what he had to say.  Entrepreneur: What are your predictions for what’s next for Bitcoin, over the next year or so? Cary: Over the next year, a lot of people may start using Bitcoin without necessarily even knowing it. The way that will work is, you might be someone working really hard in the United States and you want to send some money to your family down in South America, so you might go to a local store and hand over some of the hard-earned cash you’ve made and they will actually use the Bitcoin network to transfer the value across the border, but basically for no fee, which will save you in the cost of doing that. If you were to use Western Union or MoneyGram today, sometimes they take 15 to 20 to 30 percent.Related: Outer Space: Bitcoin’s Final Frontier? Even though you might not be in possession or custody of bitcoins, the currency, there are going to be services that most consumers end up using in the future that are relying on the Bitcoin payment network itself.For people who are interested in Bitcoin, they can certainly go and buy some, but I think the technology itself, the network, is part of the value proposition. It will allow people and businesses to use it without, and kind of obfuscate, the complexity of some of the things that are intimidating to folks.But the reality is the software has to get better. Bitcoin was successful very early on because it catered to a very technically forward audience, but the utility and need is very big, and I don’t think that anyone would debate that they’d rather be saving money if they could, and Bitcoin presents an option to live in a world of greater financial empowerment.Related: Why Bitcoin Is ‘Like Email For Money’We have to build better software as an industry. We’re getting there. User interfaces are getting better. I want to get to a place where, if I wanted to send you a payment because we went out to dinner and we split the check, I just press on a picture of your face on my phone and it instantly sends you money. That’s where we have to get to and we will get there this year.Entrepreneur: How soon will everyday commerce be powered by Bitcoin? When will we see Bitcoin as a payment system reach critical mass? Cary: It’s still tough to say. You have to look at the momentum. A year ago today there were maybe 4,000 or 5,000 merchants on the entire planet that accepted Bitcoin. Now there are probably 40,000 to 50,000.The story of ecommerce and Bitcoin is going to be a big one in 2014. You’ve already seen OKCupid, the world’s largest dating site, accept Bitcoin, WordPress, the world’s largest blogging platform accept Bitcoin, TigerDirect, and and now DISH, one of the larger cable companies in the world, have announced that they will accept Bitcoin.Related: 3 Celebs Jumping on the Bitcoin Bandwagon (and One Who Says She’s an ‘Idiot’ For Missing It)They’re going to do this because it allows them to receive a payment, basically just like cash, where they don’t pay any fees. All of these online retailers are constantly fighting to win that margin battle.Because Bitcoin payments are like cash, merchants don’t have to surrender 2 to 3 percent fees to Visa, American Express, etc. It can mean the difference between huge profits and a loss when you consider their volume.I think throughout 2014 one online retailer after another is going to start to accept Bitcoin and there are some really fantastic projects that are going to come online this summer, too. Lots of really smart entrepreneurs are coming into this space, really qualified teams, and I’m excited to see what happens.Related: SecondMarket CEO: Wall Street Will Put ‘Hundreds of Millions’ Into Bitcoin Register Now » 5 min read Free Webinar | Sept 5: Tips and Tools for Making Progress Toward Important Goalscenter_img June 3, 2014 Attend this free webinar and learn how you can maximize efficiency while getting the most critical things done right.last_img read more


first_img February 15, 2019 — Amazon recently announced Amazon Comprehend Medical, a new HIPAA-eligible machine learning service that allows developers to process unstructured medical text and identify information such as patient diagnosis, treatments, dosages, symptoms and signs, and more. Comprehend Medical helps improve clinical decision support, streamline revenue cycle and clinical trials management, and better address data privacy and protected health information (PHI) requirements.The majority of health and patient data is stored today as unstructured medical text, such as medical notes, prescriptions, audio interview transcripts, and pathology and radiology reports. Identifying this information today is a manual and time-consuming process; it either requires data entry by high-skilled medical experts, or teams of developers writing custom code and rules to try and extract the information automatically. In both cases this undifferentiated heavy lifting takes material resources away from efforts to improve patient outcomes through technology.Amazon Comprehend Medical allows developers to identify the key common types of medical information automatically, with high accuracy, and without the need for large numbers of custom rules. Comprehend Medical can identify medical conditions, anatomic terms, medications, details of medical tests, treatments and procedures. Ultimately, this richness of information may be able to one day help consumers with managing their own health, including medication management, proactively scheduling care visits, or empowering them to make informed decisions about their health and eligibility.There are no servers to provision or manage – developers only need to provide unstructured medical text to Comprehend Medical. The service will “read” the text and then identify and return the medical information contained within it. Comprehend medical will also highlight protected health information (PHI). There are no models to train, no ML experience is required, and no data processed by the service is stored or used for training. Through the Comprehend Medical application program interface (API), these new capabilities can be integrated with existing services and health systems easily. The service is also covered under Amazon Web Services’ (AWS) HIPAA eligibility and BAA.Unlocking this information from medical language makes a variety of common medical use cases easier and cost-effective, including: clinical decision support (e.g., getting a historical snapshot of a patient’s medical history), revenue cycle management (e.g., simplifying the time-intensive manual process of data entry), clinical trial management (e.g., by identifying and recruiting patients with certain attributes into clinical trials), building population health platforms, and helping address PHI requirements (e.g., for privacy and security assurance.)Amazon said it is working closely with Seattle’s Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center to support their goals to eradicate cancer in the future. Comprehend Medical is helping to identify patients for clinical trials who may benefit from specific cancer therapies. Fred Hutch was able to evaluate millions of clinical notes to extract and index medical conditions, medications and choice of cancer therapeutic options, reducing the time to process each document from hours, to seconds.“Curing cancer is, inherently, an issue of time,” said Matthew Trunnell, chief information officer, Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center. “For cancer patients and the researchers dedicated to curing them, time is the limiting resource. The process of developing clinical trials and connecting them with the right patients requires research teams to sift through and label mountains of unstructured medical record data. Amazon Comprehend Medical will reduce this time burden from hours per record to seconds. This is a vital step toward getting researchers rapid access to the information they need when they need it so they can find actionable insights to advance lifesaving therapies for patients.”“Roche’s NAVIFY decision support portfolio provides solutions that accelerate research and enable personalized healthcare. With petabytes of unstructured data being generated in hospital systems every day, our goal is to take this information and convert it into useful insights that can be efficiently accessed and understood,” said Anish Kejariwal, director of software engineering for Roche Diagnostics Information Solutions. “Amazon Comprehend Medical provides the functionality to help us with quickly extracting and structuring information from medical documents, so that we can build a comprehensive, longitudinal view of patients, and enable both decision support and population analytics.”For more information: www.aws.amazon.com/comprehend/medical FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Radiographic Fluoroscopy (RF) | August 09, 2019 Shimadzu Medical Systems Receives FDA 510(k) for FluoroSpeed X1 RF System Shimadzu Medical Systems USA, a subsidiary of Shimadzu Corp., announced they have received U.S. Food and Drug… read more News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… 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.

first_imgThe Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT) soon will be launching a new advertising campaign in 1,345 movie theaters across the United States and Canada to promote the country’s most important tourist attractions.The ICT signed a contract with international advertising agency 22 Squared, the ICT said Wednesday at a presentation with local tourism operators.In a press release, ICT said the plan gives continuity to the “Gift of Happiness” campaign that is currently being aired in these two countries. That ad campaign was developed by the same agency.Screenings will continue through early 2014 in theaters in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Denver, Atlanta, Palm Beach, Dallas, Houston, and Montreal.The plan also includes the creation of an iPad app called “Go Costa Rica,” and the posting of information on social platforms Pinterest and Instagram.The messages aim to increase visits during the green season, which in Costa Rica runs May-October, and to promote tourist destinations in the capital, San José.

first_imgIt warned of an ice age, a flood, famine, and a nuclear holocaust. But now ‘London Calling’ is being used by organisers of the London 2012 Olympic Games to sell the event and the city to prospective visitors.And music critics are at a loss as to why the song – title aside – was chosen.“In the song, London’s got zombies wandering around, the river’s flooding, and the policemen are beating everyone up,” music writer and BBC freelancer Alan Connor told NPR.“So it’s not much of a way of saying, ‘hey, come and watch our beach volleyball – you’ll have a great time’.”Penned in 1979 by The Clash, the iconic tune will be part of countdown advertisements for the Games which begin in just under a year’s time.And whilst in its way the song celebrates the city, Connor says it also repudiates the previous decade’s idea of London. “When he says ‘we ain’t got no swing’, I think Joe Strummer is trying to put in the bin the red-bus, black-taxi, groovy-baby kind of London.”Echoing Connor was fellow BBC contributor Marcus Gray who called ‘London Calling’ “a classic example” of a song that in its fame had lost its intended meaning. “It’s instantly recognisable and superficially the perfect invitation to the capital and the world’s premiere sporting event, but it’s actually about the end of the world, at least as we know it.”Here’s a sample of the song’s lyrics:The ice age is coming, the sun’s zooming inMeltdown expected, the wheat is growing thinEngines stop running, but I have no fear‘Cause London is drowning, and I live by the river Source = e-Travel Blackboard: M.Hlast_img read more

first_img June 3, 2015 527 Views in Daily Dose, Featured, Government, Origination, Servicing, Uncategorized New Legislation to Provide Main Street Bank Relief and Consumer Protection Community Lender Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act of 2015 Democrats House Financial Services Committee Senate Banking Committee 2015-06-03 Staff Writercenter_img Democratic Members on the Senate Banking and House Financial Services Committees announced in a press release that new legislation will provide targeted relief to small financial institutions and protection for consumers. This legislation was introduced in both the House of Representatives and the United States Senate and has the unanimous support of Democratic Members of the respective committees.Ranking Members Sherrod Brown (D-Ohio) and Maxine Waters (D-California) joined Sen. Heidi Heitkamp (D-North Dakota) and Rep. John Carney (D-Delaware) announced the introduction of this new legislation.“There is no reason why Democrats and Republicans can’t pass targeted legislation today that would give community lenders relief and be signed into law,” said Brown. “Main Street financial institutions shouldn’t be held hostage to an ideological attack on the Wall Street reform law.”This new measure titled “Community Lender Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act of 2015,” will provide community banks and credit unions with relief without putting consumers and the economy in harm’s way, the financial committee reported.The House of Representatives have already passed the many provisions of this new rule with bipartisan support, the Democrats noted. In addition to relief for Main Street financial institutions, the measure also includes a number of key provisions to increase consumer protections for service members and renters.“Our unity behind this legislation is an unequivocal statement of Democratic support for small banks and credit unions, which are on the front lines of lending in our communities,” said Waters. “This measure represents a compromise that takes all perspectives into account, by providing targeted relief to real Main Street institutions while increasing protections for servicemembers and vulnerable communities. Our approach is in stark contrast to House and Senate Republicans, who have used the concerns of community banks to push dramatic changes to Dodd-Frank.”New legislation will also allow banks and credit unions that have less than $10 billion in assets relief from the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau’s (CFPB) Qualified Mortgage rule, the committee members said. This will exempt certain loans from its requirements as long as these intuitions do not sell or securitize those loans.“We’re introducing a common sense bill that can actually pass the Senate, House, and be signed into law,” said Sen. Heitkamp. “We need solid, realistic reforms that support community banks and credit unions so they can help families, businesses, and farmers gets access to loans and capital, and that’s what this bill accomplishes. It’s telling that every Democrat on both committees supports this bill–we come from varying degrees of the political spectrum—as it was through compromise and open dialogue that we were able to reach an agreement.”In addition, the new rule would also protect consumers with a new method by giving the CFPB supervision and enforcement authority over a number of consumer protection provisions of the Service Member Civil Relief Act, according to the new legislation. The measure would also make permanent expired provisions to protect tenants from eviction when their landlord or property owner has entered foreclosure.“This bill will go a long way toward ensuring access to credit and enabling community banks to better serve their customers while retaining and strengthening core consumer protections,” said Rep. Carney. “Dodd Frank made a lot of important changes to our banking system, but there’s more work to do. Our legislation fine-tunes Dodd Frank so it works as intended.”Click here to view the Community Lender Regulatory Relief and Consumer Protection Act of 2015 Sharelast_img read more


first_img in Daily Dose, Data, Featured, Secondary Market Sales of homes priced at more than $2 million declined 16% year-over-year last quarter, marking the second-consecutive quarter of decline and the biggest drop in luxury sales since 2010, according to a Redfin report.Redfin compiles the data by tracking home sales in more than 1,000 U.S. cities, excluding New York City, and defines a home as “luxury” if it’s among the top 5% most expensive homes sold in the quarter.The price of homes in the remaining 95% of the market rose 2.7% year-over-year to an average of $300,000 in the first quarter, continuing six straight years of increases.Declines in home sales, though, are not indicative of the available inventory. The report states that the amount of homes priced at more than $2 million increased for the fourth-consecutive quarter by 14%. The amount of luxury homes continues to rebound after supplies declined 10% in 2017.“Because homeowners can’t deduct as much mortgage interest as they used to be able to, the calculus has changed when it comes to buying a home, especially an expensive one,” said Daryl Fairweather, Chief Economist at Redfin. “Although the new mortgage rule applies to everyone in the country, high earners in states with high income taxes like California and Massachusetts saw their tax bills surge. Not only do the new rules make it less desirable to purchase a multi-million dollar home in high-tax states, it has also motivated some people—especially those with big incomes and big housing budgets—to consider moving to places like Florida, Washington or Nevada, which have no state income tax.”Homes priced at more than $2 million spent an average of 83 days on the market, compared to 69 days for homes priced under $2 million. The amount of homes sold above the listing price for luxury homes was just 1%, a steep drop from the 18% for non-luxury homes.The news isn’t all bad for luxury homeowners, however, as prices for high-priced homes fell in just one-third of U.S. cities.Boston reported a 22.4% decline in luxury home prices in the first quarter. Other markets that saw decreases were Newport Beach, California (-22.4%); Miami (-19.3%), San Jose, California (-2.7); and San Francisco (-0.3%).Two Florida cities—West Palm Beach and St. Petersburg—recorded the nation’s biggest increases at 89.6% and 62.3%, respectively. Luxury home prices in West Palm Beach skyrocketed to more than $2.8 million.
