first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – A judge tightened bail conditions on a South American soccer official charged in the FIFA bribery scandal after prosecutors surprised the courtroom by accusing the defendant of threatening their star witness by making a slashing motion on his neck as the witness testified at trial.The dramatic twist in federal court in New York came after Alejandro Burzaco, a former marketing executive from Argentina, spent the day accusing Manuel Burga and two other soccer official co-defendants of taking bribes in exchange for their help securing broadcasting and hosting rights for tournaments.Burzaco testified that his firm gave Burga, the former president of Peru’s soccer federation, $3.6 million in bribes during the course of their relationship. He claimed that when he agreed in 2015 to co-operate against officials charged in the case he became the target of death threats.After news of Burzaco’s co-operation broke in Argentina, his brother, a former law enforcement officer, called him with inside information that authorities there had received “an instruction to shut me down,” he testified, choking back tears. That meant something needed to be done “for me not to say anything in the U.S., including killing me,” he added.Once Burzaco concluded his testimony and the jury had gone home for the day, prosecutors asked U.S. District Judge Pamela Chen to jail Burga, saying he had left Burzaco visibly shaken by twice staring at him and using the slashing motion. A lawyer for Burga claimed his client was merely scratching his throat.The judge stopped short of locking up Burga, instead cutting off his access of phones and computers and placing him under house arrest at a home in Brooklyn. Burga already had been on GPS monitoring but had some privileges to leave the home.The judge said that while one security video of the courtroom was inconclusive, she would return to it on Thursday after reviewing a second tape prosecutors say backs up their claim.“All the facts surrounding this give me grave concerns,” the judge said.Earlier Wednesday, Burzaco testified that media giants Globo, of Brazil, and Televisa, of Mexico, teamed with a marketing firm to make a $15 million bribe to a FIFA executive to help them secure lucrative broadcasting rights to the World Cup in 2026 and 2030.Burzaco said that the deal was struck with longtime FIFA finance committee chairman Julio Grondona at a 2013 meeting in Zurich. He also has implicated Fox Sports in a separate bribery scheme. Fox, Globo and Televisa have denied any wrongdoing, and none of them is charged in the case.Burga, Jose Maria Marin and Juan Angel Napout have pleaded not guilty to charges they took part in a 24-year scheme involving at least $150 million in bribes that secured broadcasting and hosting rights for soccer tournaments around the globe. Burzaco has testified that, along with the $3.6 million his firm gave Burga, it directed another $4.5 million in bribes to Napout and $2.7 million to Marin.More than 40 other officials, business executives and entities have been charged. Many, including Burzaco, have pleaded guilty in hopes of receiving reduced sentences.One former Argentine government official killed himself Tuesday just hours after Burzaco testified that he, too, was involved in taking bribes.Jorge Delhon, a lawyer who worked in the administration of former Argentina President Cristina Fernandez, jumped in front of a train in Buenos Aires. He had not been charged in the case.A ministry official in Buenos Aires province confirmed the death. The official spoke to The Associated Press on the condition of anonymity because he wasn’t authorized to speak on the subject.“I love you all,” Delhon wrote in a suicide note to his family, the ministry official told the AP. “I can’t believe (what’s happening).”Burzaco testified that he bribed Delhon and others in exchange for TV production rights to soccer matches.In other testimony Tuesday, Burzaco told the jury how Grondona, who died in 2014, claimed in several conversations that he was owed millions of dollars for his 2010 vote as a member of FIFA’s executive committee that helped Qatar land the World Cup, soccer’s most prestigious tournament.The account appeared to back up persistent suspicions that the Qatar vote was rigged and that the influence of Grondona, the senior vice-president at FIFA and head of the Argentinian football association, was for sale.Burzaco also seemed to confirm long-held allegations that FIFA bidding rules were broken by a vote-trading pact between Qatar’s bid for 2022 and the joint Spain-Portugal bid for 2018 hosting rights that Russia eventually won.After Qatar’s vote victory, beating the United States in a final round ballot, unproven allegations were made that Qatar paid the Grondona-led Argentine soccer federation tens of millions of dollars.Burzaco said in court he could not verify the truth of allegations about Qatar.Defence lawyers are set to cross-examine Burzaco on Thursday.___Associated Press writers Graham Dunbar in Geneva, Claudia Torrens in New York and Almudena Calatrava in Buenos Aires, Argentina, contributed to this report.___This story has been corrected to show the man said the bribe was $4.5 million, not $9.7 million.last_img read more


first_imgPatna: At a time when the trades of chaiwallas and chowkidars have become part of the political discourse, a humble street hawker in Patna is diligently working to raise awareness about voting and asking the electorate to vote on the basis of a candidate’s merit to build a strong democracy.Through his ‘Cycle Jagrukta Yatra’, Lal Mani Das travels across the Bihar capital and also tells people to not give in to temptation of money or other material gains offered by others to sway their votes. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’Das, 50, is a ‘bhunjawallah’ — street snack seller — and puts up his cart near the Bazaar Samiti, city’s huge vegetable and fruits market, but now only hawks the famous snack in the evening, spending early part of the day on his campaign. Wearing a shirt and a trouser, a pair of slippers, and sporting a cap bearing the Election Commission logo and a slogan, he paddles around in Patna on his bicycle, and distributes pamphlets to people, carrying an appeal to vote wisely. Also Read – Farooq demands unconditional release of all detainees in J&KIn front of his bicycle, he has put up a banner that enumerates the qualities a candidate should have, which every voter should keep in mind. Das, himself wears a big, two-sided banner carrying a message — ‘Respect rights of a citizen. Cast your vote’ — over his shirt to spread the message. “Voting is very essential part of ensuring a strong democracy. My first target is to reach out to as many people so that more and more numbers come out and vote on the polling day. Also, I am appealing to them to vote for candidates who have character and those who respect the rule of law,” Das told PTI. On the banner mounted in front of his bicycle, a slogan on the top reads in Hindi — ‘Will respect rights of a citizen, will vote’. “In this banner I have mentioned 10 points for voters to keep in mind, whether first-timers or old-aged ones. So, first one says, we will elect those people who spend less money during election. And, those who respect the rule of law. “Also, among those seeking re-election, we should vote for a candidate, who does not create ruckus in Parliament, has an attendance of at least 75 per cent, participates in House debates and who is committed,” he said. Voters should prefer NOTA (none of the above) option if they have to choose among those candidates who often break laws, Das said. A father of four — one daughter and three sons, Das who originally hails from neighbouring Begusarai district, says, he moved to Patna 15 years ago, in search of livelihood, and lives with his wife and children in a small house near Bazaar Samiti. Asked, how much he earns from selling ‘bhunja’, he said, “I make around Rs 500 to Rs 600 on an average. But, as I am giving more time to my campaign, I am making some losses, but I have no regret.” Das admits that his wife, a homemaker, was against this idea of awareness drive, and still wants him to quit and go back to regular selling job. “She is upset, and my children also are also half-supportive of this campaign, but, I feel that as a citizen, we must each do something towards strengthening our democracy. This is my humble contribution to that larger vision of building a great nation,” he said. Das, in a profound message printed on the pamphlet he hands out, quotes writers, poets and revolutionaries to inspire people to vote with discretion. “…It is not as to who will solve the problem in the system, it is about who will take the first step towards it,” he said, quoting the lines in Hindi from the pamphlet. “If we have to save democracy, we will have to elect candidates with character, otherwise sacrifices made by the freedom fighters will go waste,” he said. The 2019 Lok Sabha polls will be held in a seven phases from April 11 to May 19. In Bihar too, which has 40 Lok Sabha seats, the elections would be held in seven phases. As part of the first phase, four constituencies in the state — Gaya, Nawada, Aurangabad and Jamui will go to polls on April 11.last_img read more

“I am deeply concerned about reports that spiralling violence is preventing both international and local media from covering events in Iraq,” UNESCO Director-General Koïchiro Matsuura said in a statement released today, his latest intervention on behalf of journalists in general and those working in war-torn Iraq in particular.“Every Iraqi and everyone who cares about the future of Iraq must be horrified to see guns and bullets take the place of thought and debate. It is very dangerous indeed to let gunmen muzzle the public exchange of news and opinions.”Gunmen on Wednesday kidnapped and killed Atwar Bahjat, a correspondent for Al Arabiya television and two members of her crew: cameraman Adnan Khairallah and soundman Khaled Mohsen. Police are reported to have found the bodies of the three, all of them Iraqi nationals, on the outskirts of Samarra which was the scene of sectarian violence.“The work of journalists is essential for democracy, nowhere more so than in a country that has suffered decades of oppression and strife,” Mr. Matsuura said.“I am appalled by the level of violence directed at the media in Iraq. It is essential that such attacks be stopped and that journalists, who have shown courage and dedication in carrying out their professional duties, be able to continue informing the public freely,” he added.According to the International Federation of Journalists (IFJ) 109 journalists and media staff have been killed in Iraq since the United States-led invasion 2003. UNESCO is the only UN agency with a mandate to defend freedom of expression and press freedom, and Mr. Matsuura has issued frequent condemnations of the murder of journalists around the world in recent months. read more


If you want to talk about the really good guy who’s not in the tournamentMarkelle FultzFreshman PG, 6-foot-4, WashingtonFultz’s Huskies won’t be in the tournament, but he may come up in draft conversations just the same. Like Ball, Fultz is a stand-out point guard prospect. But while Ball’s offense comes from all over, Fultz was at his best in pick-and-roll, where he has scored 101 points per 100 plays — among the best in the nation for that play type, according to Synergy. He’s especially good at turning the corner quickly and finishing at the rim, but he can also curl around the screen and fire a pull-up three — a shot that’s growing in popularity (and effectiveness) in the NBA. Otherwise, Fultz gets most of his offense by getting out in transition and getting set up for spot-up jumpers, where he’s good but doesn’t stand out as much as he does in the pick-and-roll.If you’re looking for wingsJosh JacksonFreshman SF, 6-foot-8, KansasJackson is a defensive standout and one of the best point-forward prospects in the class. While his defensive numbers (via Synergy) are good but not great (he’s holding his marks to 81 points per 100 plays overall), he can straight-up stick his man and chase him off of shots he’d otherwise take. In fact, his overall numbers are pulled down a bit by his role: Despite spending most of his time as a stretch-4, almost 60 percent of his defensive plays come against spot-up shooters and in isolation, which are play types where the offense believes it has an advantage. Yet Jackson is still holding his own.Jackson is a natural and willing passer who finds runners on the break and in semi-transition, often on clever back-door cuts, and sucks defenders in on drives before dishing to a teammate for an easy dumpoff and dunk. Kansas also puts Jackson in a lot of 4-5 pick-and-rolls, where he can throw lobs to center Landen Lucas. A lot of times, prospects can put up impressive passing numbers simply by using a lot of possessions (Jackson’s assist percentage is 18.9 — very good for a non-point guard), but in this case, the eye test matches the numbers. Jackson is the truth.The one question with Jackson’s game is whether his jump shot is real. Jackson began the season shooting miserably from long range, going 23.7 percent on 2.1 3-point attempts per game in his first 18 games. But since late January, he’s been on a tear. In 13 games since Jan. 21, Jackson is shooting 51.3 percent on three 3-point attempts per game. That evens out to 38 percent on the season, but that kind of extreme swing is worth keeping in mind. As with any one-and-done prospect, we’re dealing in small sample sizes. But for Jackson, there’s at least some explanation for the inconsistency: His coaches aren’t touching his jump shot this season.“Now can he tighten it up and do some things differently? Absolutely,” Kansas coach Bill Self said in December. “But that will probably be on somebody else’s watch. That won’t be on our watch as much. I don’t see a reason why when you have a young man for a very brief period of time why you want to totally cloud his brain with something other than very, very few, simple things.”So the state of Jackson’s jumper over the next few weeks may not be the most important thing to focus on. But how able he is to adjust once he’s in the NBA will be crucial, as the difference between a wing prospect who can do it all and one who can do it all minus a jumper is the difference between an All-NBA-level talent and a useful role player.Jayson TatumFreshman F, 6-foot-8, DukeTatum is a down-the-middle wing prospect. He’s a good defender (allowing 73 points per 100 plays), a pretty good defensive rebounder (19.7 percent defensive rebound rate), a pretty good spot-up jump shooter (89 points per 100 plays, according to Synergy, although 12 of his 37 made threes for the year came during a three-game stretch in February), and a pretty good passer. But his underlying metrics don’t match up with his more obvious talents, such as when he broke out and averaged 22 points per game through the ACC tournament. The natural comparison for Tatum is Justise Winslow, another Duke swingman/small-ball 4 with obvious talents that can go unrecognized by college stats.If you are Vivek RanadiveMalik MonkFreshman PG, 6-foot-3, KentuckyOver the last several seasons, we’ve gotten a pretty clear idea of the tastes of Sacramento Kings owner Ranadive, as well as the forcefulness of his pursuit of those tastes. The Ranadive type is a guard in the mold of Ben McLemore, Nik Stauskas or Buddy Hield, a gunslinger who can shoot a team into the Final Four all on his own. This season, no player captures that type better than Kentucky’s Malik Monk. No offense to Monk.Monk is a shooter, and almost singlehandedly shoulders the load of 3-point shooting for Kentucky. This makes him a somewhat unique Kentucky guard, as he’s averaging nearly seven 3-point attempts per game and hitting 40 percent of them, which is impressive on its own, but more so when you consider that he’s doing it while dealing with extra defenders cheating off of backcourt mates De’Aaron Fox (24.2 percent from three) and Isaiah Briscoe (27.3 percent). For many NBA fans, March Madness is the embarrassing time of year when they realize that while they can recite, say, the Milwaukee Bucks’ bench rotation or the draft implications of a Sacramento Kings win, they can’t name more than a handful of college players. The tournament is the first time such fans will be seeing many of the players whom they’ll then discuss at length leading up to the NBA draft. So if you’re starting from zero, or are just looking for a quick refresher on a few prospects, here’s a viewing guide to the top lottery prospects in the tournament.If you’re looking for point guardsLonzo BallFreshman PG, 6-foot-6, UCLAChances are that most NBA fans have heard a little bit about Lonzo Ball. But much of the talk has been about his father, his brothers or his draft stock, rather than just how outstanding Ball has been on the court.First off, Ball is one of the most efficient scorers in the college game. His top-line analytics are staggering: Ball has a 66.7 true shooting percentage and scores 108 points per 100 plays; 56.3 percent of his field goal attempts are threes (he hits 41 percent of those). The overall efficiency is propped up a little because 31 percent of his plays (a massive chunk) have come in transition, where he scores 112 points per 100. Getting out and running is an effective strategy, and a big reason why the Bruins lead the NCAA with 90.4 points per game, but it’s not quite as telling for what Ball will be able to do in the NBA. For that, catch him spotting up for that broken-looking jumper of his — he scores 125 points per 100 plays on spot-ups, which is just as impressive as it sounds.Where Ball isn’t as polished is on the pick-and-roll — a play type that fellow top prospect Markelle Fultz of Washington excels at. Ball scores a more mediocre 78 points per 100 pick-and-roll plays. He’s also just a so-so rebounder for his size, with a 9.4 total rebound rate and 14.4 defensive rebound rate, neither of which is overly impressive for a 6-foot-6 superathlete.But those are all just individual stats. What makes Ball so special is that he can do all those things while also operating as a true point guard. Combine Ball’s individual stats with his passing numbers and the numbers begin to get silly. According to Synergy Sports Technology, he has an absurd 156 points per 100 plays on all plays he finishes — so when he shoots or draws a foul or commits a turnover — plus plays on which he records an assist. A little reference, since this isn’t the most common stat around: These plays + assist numbers tend to look a little inflated compared to what you usually see for players, because adding assists includes only made shots. This isn’t ideal, but it does give a good sense of the total contribution of a player, since adding more assists will nudge the number upward. Here are the numbers for some other top players: Fultz and Kentucky’s De’Aaron Fox are at 127p+a/100; Malik Monk of Kentucky is at 119; Josh Jackson of Kansas is at 116. Those are very good numbers, but Ball’s still stand out when compared apples-to-apples.De’Arron FoxFreshman PG, 6-foot-3, KentuckyThe line on Fox has been that he’s a jump shot away from being a top-five pick. So it’s telling that he’s still projected to be a late-lottery pick. On the year, Fox is scoring just 79 points per 100 plays on spot-up jumpers, according to Synergy, which is not very good at all. That’s not a great sign for a perimeter prospect, but Fox has one big thing working in his favor: speed.Fox is a burner, one of the fastest guards in the country, and puts that speed to material use in his game. He and backcourt mate Malik Monk are both in the top 15 of transition plays per game (5.6 per game for Fox, 5.7 for Monk). And once Fox is out in the open court, he can get to the rim at will. His penetration also carries him on isolation plays, where he’s strong (97 points per 100 plays). The question is whether Fox can combine those individual skills into an all-around game. He’s sitting on an assist percentage1The percentage of teammate field goals assisted by a player while he’s on the court. of 30, which is solid, but he doesn’t have the best passing instincts out on the break and can force things at the rim.VIDEO: Our picks for bracket success This perimeter workload has weighed down other parts of Monk’s game. As a prospect, he was known for killer athleticism, but he hasn’t gotten to the basket the way Fox has for the Wildcats: 80 percent of his shots in the halfcourt offense have been jumpers, according to Synergy. He’s scored an excellent 111 points per 100 plays on those jumpers, so it’s working out. But he’s even more efficient when he gets to the rim, either in half court or in transition.If you’re looking for big menLauri MarkkanenFreshman PF/C, 7-foot, ArizonaMarkkanen is a 7-foot freshman center out of Finland who lacks a true comparison in the modern game because I’ll be struck down by the Almighty if I invoke Arvydas Sabonis.Markkanen is sitting on a 63.3 true shooting percentage; 44.4 percent of his field goal attempts are threes, and he hits 43.2 percent of them. He isn’t just a jump shooter, though — Synergy has him averaging 125 points per 100 plays as the roll man in pick-and-roll and 102 points per 100 plays posting up — both excellent numbers. He is a bigger body than recent rangy big-man prospects like Nikola Mirotic but has more bounce than guys his size. This allows him to be a strong rebounder (17.7 defensive rebound rate) but also a live body filling the lane in transition or cutting off the ball. While Markkanen’s stats are impressive enough, he’s one of the guys in the tournament who are especially eye-opening in live action since a not-that-scrawny 7-footer moving around the court and doing the things he can do is a rare sight, even in the NBA.Check out our March Madness predictions. read more

Mind you and dond marry one that is out there and I will not marry one that is here till you come,” the woman wrote to an unidentified man at the Hudson’s Bay Company.The young men, playing out this scene in 2012 as part of the Fort Vancouver Lantern Tour, had to react to this startling display of sentiment as if they were really clerks at the fort back in the mid 1800s.And back then, such talk was considered almost pornographic, said Cassie Anderson, a park ranger and youth volunteer coordinator.“That would be a really personal sentiment,” Anderson said. “It sounds mild today, but it would have had a lot more emphasis back then.”last_img read more


first_imgMarkets will be closely watching the announcement of Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) fourth quarter earnings on Thursday, as investors remain keen to assess the impact of strong dollar on the revenues of major IT companies.A strong dollar is good for Indian IT companies but can have an equally negative impact, affecting their business in countries other than US, as depreciating local currencies put pressure on the revenues from those countries.TCS, India’s largest IT firm, already said that its margins would be down 40 basis points in January-March quarter due to currency fluctuations besides seasonal weakness in demand.Analysts expect the company’s rupee denominated revenue to show no growth for the final quarter of 2014-15. Its dollar denominated revenue is estimated to go down by 200-270 basis points (bps).The Mumbai-based software firm is expected to have earned revenue of ₹24,498.7 crore in March 2015 quarter compared to ₹24,501.1 crore in the previous quarter, The Economic Times reported, taking into account the average of the estimates by five brokerages and the forecast by the ET Intelligence Group.Net profit is likely to fall by 0.9% to ₹5,396.4 crore, according to the estimates.The dollar’s rally against its major counterparts is hurting revenues of domestic software services firms in the non-US markets such as Europe, where the demand is already slowing due to a sagging economy.The impact of depreciation of global currencies against the USD was at 200-250bps on the sequential revenue growth of the top five IT players, viz., TCS, Infosys, Wipro, HCL Tech and Tech Mahindra, IDFC’s IT analyst Hitesh Shah told The Times of India.The US currency gained 9% versus the euro in January-March period compared to same quarter last year due to monetary policy divergence between the US and Europe. Foreign exchange rates are highly impacted by monetary policies of respective central banks.Revenues from Europe have doubled in the past five years for India’s top IT companies, as they diversified their market presence after having been hit severely by the financial crisis in the US in 2008.Infosys Results More in Focus This Earning SeasonInfosys Ltd., India’s second largest software services firm, which begins the quarterly earnings season traditionally, postponed the announcement of its results to 24 April, 2015 without citing any reason.Analysts say that chief executive officer Vishal Sikka is seeking more time to finalise the roadmap needed to restructure into a next-generation service company.The $8.2 billion IT services company is expected to outline new metrics to ascertain the progress of the revival strategy initiated by the new chief executive after taking charge in August 2014.Infosys reported a revenue growth of 2.6% in the third quarter ending December 2014, helped by growth in all verticals and new client additions.last_img read more

Larry Hogan has called for a statewide “Day Of Prayer And Peace” on Sunday after civil unrest rocked Baltimore. (AP Photo/David Goldman)BALTIMORE (AP) — Six days after riots sparked by Freddie Gray’s death, Baltimore’s mayor lifted a citywide curfew Sunday and faith leaders called for continued activism until justice is achieved.A jubilant crowd of several hundred prayed and sang civil-rights anthems at a City Hall rally. Sunday’s peaceful gathering came two days after the city’s top prosecutor announced criminal charges against six officers involved in Gray’s arrest.Speaker after speaker exhorted the crowd not to rest just because the officers have been charged. The Rev. Jamal Bryant, a fiery leader of the protests that followed Gray’s April 12 arrest and the death of the 25-year-old Black man a week later, drew deafening cheers when he said the officers deserve jail time.“We’ve got to see this all the way through, until all six officers trade in their blue uniform for an orange uniform,” Bryant said. “Let them know: Orange is the new Black.”The Rev. Lisa Weah, pastor of the New Bethlehem Baptist Church in Gray’s neighborhood, said the message of equal justice for all must not be lost.“Our prayer is that Baltimore will be the model for the rest of the nation,” she said.Local rappers from right, Kova, Bilal and Spence sing on a street corner near the scene of some of Monday’s rioting following Freddie Gray’s funeral, Sunday, May 3, 2015, in Baltimore.

(AP Photo/David Goldman)Police said Sunday that 486 people had been arrested since April 23, and that 113 officers had been injured at riots and protests. The extent of the officers’ injuries was unclear. Earlier in the week, police had said that out of nearly 100 injured officers, 13 were hurt to the extent that they couldn’t work, and 15 were on desk duty.The order for residents to stay home between 10 p.m. and 5 a.m. had been in place since Tuesday; officials had originally planned to maintain it through Monday morning. Protests since last Monday’s riots have been peaceful, and Friday’s announcement of charges eased tensions.Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced the curfew’s end in a statement.“My number one priority in instituting a curfew was to ensure the public peace, safety, health and welfare of Baltimore citizens,” the Democratic mayor said. “It was not an easy decision, but one I felt was necessary to help our city restore calm.”People join hands during a rally in front of City Hall, Sunday, May 3, 2015, in Baltimore.

Larry Hogan has called for a statewide “Day Of Prayer And Peace” on Sunday after civil unrest rocked Baltimore. (AP Photo/David Goldman)State’s Attorney Marilyn Mosby has said Gray died after suffering a broken neck while inside a police van. On Friday, Mosby filed charges against the officers involved in his arrest and transport. One is charged with second-degree murder. Three others are charged with involuntary manslaughter and two with second-degree assault.Mosby said Gray’s neck was broken because he was placed head-first in a police van, handcuffed and later in leg shackles, where he was left to slam against the walls of the small metal compartment. Police said the officers who arrested Gray ignored his cries for help because they thought he was faking his injuries. He was repeatedly denied medical attention.Rioting and looting erupted hours after Gray’s funeral last Monday. A 10 p.m.-5 a.m. curfew was ordered Tuesday after a night of violence, looting and arson. About 3,000 National Guard soldiers were deployed to the city along with 1,000 extra police officers, including some from out of state. Republican Gov. Larry Hogan said the Guard and the officers would be leaving over the next few days.“We think it’s time to get the community back to normal again,” Hogan said. “It’s been a very hard week, but we’ve kept everybody safe.”The Maryland chapter of the ACLU sent a letter to Rawlings-Blake on Saturday alleging that the curfew was “being enforced arbitrarily and selectively” to break up peaceful protests and prevent media outlets from providing accurate coverage of police activity.Members of the National Guard board a truck at an armory staging area Sunday, May 3, 2015, in Baltimore.

(AP Photo/David Goldman)“The curfew is having a dramatic effect on the ability of Baltimore residents to simply go about their daily lives free from fear or arbitrary arrest,” the letter read, adding that it’s also “the target of protest and the source of new problems rather than a solution.”Rep. Elijah Cummings, D-Md., said Sunday he will ask President Barack Obama and congressional leaders to send a bipartisan delegation “to look at what is going on in Baltimore.”“It is so symbolic of what is going on all over this country. We have to address the problems of the urban areas because so many our young people are being left behind,” Cummings said.More than 200 people were arrested during Monday’s riots, and more than half of those were released without charges. Rawlings-Blake said during an appearance Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press” that authorities are combing through videotapes to identify looters and charge them.___Associated Press writers Michael Biesecker and Juliet Linderman, and radio correspondent Julie Walker in Baltimore contributed to this report.last_img read more

first_img 3 min read May 5, 2015 Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Free Webinar | Sept. 9: The Entrepreneur’s Playbook for Going Global As the fields of robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence become more sophisticated, the separation between ‘human’ jobs and ‘robotic’ ones continues to disintegrate.Tasks previously reserved for humans are being automated, a trend that is gaining steam. A 2013 report by Oxford researchers projected that by 2033, 47 percent of jobs in the U.S. could be performed by machines.So is your job safe?If you work in a creative field, the answer is probably yes. That’s according to a new report, called Creativity vs. Robots, co-written by Oxford researchers and Nesta, a London-based non-profit research and innovation group. By evaluating 702 professions in the U.S. for their required degree of creativity, the report estimates the likelihood that each position will be overtaken by robots in the near future.In a reversal of current economic realities, fine artists – actors, painters, dancers and musicians – can breathe the easiest. Along with other creative types, a group that includes graphic designers, architects, marketing directors, advertising managers, civil engineers and computer game programmers, their jobs, which the study identified as “highly creative,” will be among the last to be replaced machines.Related: This Is What Robots Will Be Doing in 2025Interestingly, when it comes to monetary gain, the study found an inverse U-shape relationship between the probability that an occupation is highly creative and the average income it delivers. Unsurprisingly, fine artists (your actors, painters, dancers and the like) reside on one side of the curve, making very little, on average, a year, while creative professions associated with the arrival of new technologies  bring in high annual salaries.Other professions the report predicts will continue to be executed by flesh and blood humans well into the future include:Translators and interpretors (5.8 percent risk of compurization within the next 10 to 20 years)Performing artists (7 percent)Architects (7.1 percent)Film and TV producers (8 percent)R&D on natural sciences (10.9 percent)Manufacture of watches and clocks (5.5 percent)General secondary education (9.6 percent)Unfortunately, most of the current jobs in the U.S. aren’t so safe; only 21 percent U.S. employment is classified as “highly creative,” which leaves a large swath of the working population vulnerable to replacement by robot.Many at risk positions are predicable – such as office administrators, call-center operators, loggers and super market cashiers — but the category also includes jobs that, on the surface at least, appear reasonably safe.Related: In Japan, a ‘Strange Hotel’ Will Be Staffed Almost Entirely By RobotsWith a 67.5 percent risk of computerization, it’s likely that bartending will soon be a profession of the past. On one hand, this makes sense: Multiple companies are betting big on the imminent popularity of cocktail robots (we’ve written about Somabar, a cocktail maker for the home, and similar, more upscale devices are being installed in restaurants across the country). But on the other hand, the estimation feels off: Going to a bar is a primarily social experience – is the appeal as great if you replace a chatty bartender with a machine?Apparently so. Here’s a list of other, potentially surprising occupations that are in danger of automation. (Advances in mobile robotics, data mining and computational statistics mean that “jobs that are considered creative today may not be so tomorrow,” the report warns.)Publication of directs and mailing lists (69.4 percent)News agency activities (64.5 percent)Risk and damage evaluation (58.6 percent)Event catering activities (52.7 percent)Sale of motor vehicles (45.7 percent) Register Now » Growing a business sometimes requires thinking outside the box.last_img read more

The ITN team recently attended the Association for Medical Imaging Management (AHRA)’s 45th Annual Meeting and Exposition in Anaheim, Calif., where nearly 1,000 members, vendors and presenters came together to learn and network. We learned from the three nationally renowned keynote speakers, more than 100 breakout sessions and from the new technology showcased in the exhibit hall by 160 different companies.At the meeting, associate editor Jeff Zagoudis had the opportunity to interview AHRA President Jason Newmark, CRA, FAHRA, and CEO Ed Cronin. Newmark and Cronin highlighted the association’s accomplishments over the past year, and discussed how AHRA will help its members face the coming changes in healthcare.Highlighting what is new, Newmark mentioned that regulatory affairs are a huge issue for AHRA, its members and all of the regulations that are coming down the pipeline. “We decided a few years ago that we need to be a little more active in that area, so we created the Regulatory Affairs committee, and they are charged initially with just monitoring what is happening, and develop position papers so our members would understand what was coming down and what they should be focusing on,” he explained. “But we found after we started to do that that we could probably have more input into the decision-making process, so we are now more active in advocating for outcomes rather than just monitoring and informing our members, so I think that will be something that we really will be focusing on in the future.”The AHRA Education Foundation (EF) launched a new campaign at this year’s meeting. “We are calling it ‘Defining Our Future,’ and it’s going to focus on developing leadership skills for the next generation, developing education programs for our members so they continue to excel at what they do, a lot of research, and also expanding our advocacy programs,” said Newmark.The association plans to continue to grow its membership, and according to Newmark, is going back to the grassroots. “We are having our members around the country host local meetings where we can get our members in that area to come together, and also invite nonmembers,” he stated.You can watch Jeff’s entire interview with Newman and Cronin at http://bit.ly/2vI4kMc, in addition to other videos, including Personalized Breast Screening and Breast Density with Nancy Cappello, Ph.D., executive director and founder of Are You Dense Inc. and Are You Dense Advocacy; Critical Issues in Radiology Administration featuring Angelic McDonald, MSRS, CRA, FAHRA, regional director of imaging, Baylor Scott & White Health and the president-elect of AHRA; and The Role of Analytics in Value-Based Healthcare with Woojin Kim, M.D., chief medical information officer, Nuance Communications.
