first_img​Proposed Liverpool kit deal with Nike worth less than current sponsors New Balanceby Ian Ferris25 days agoSend to a friendShare the loveLiverpool’s proposed new kit deal with US sportswear giant Nike is only worth a guaranteed UK£30 million (US$37 million) per year, according to High Court papers seen by the Times, reports, www.sportspromedia.com/.The figure is in stark contrast to the previously reported UK£70 million (US$86 million) per year figure for the Nike deal. Instead, this reported base figure is less than Liverpool’s existing UK£45 million (US$55 million) annual deal with New Balance, which is taking the club to court claiming a contract clause means it can match Nike’s terms.It is also less than the minimum UK£50 million (US$61 million) per year deals Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur have with Nike, as well as the UK£71 million per year agreement the brand struck with French champions PSG in June.However, Liverpool apparently believe Nike can deliver far greater total revenue for the club than has been generated by their deal with New Balance. This is reflected by a commitment from Nike in the proposed deal to pay the club a 20 per cent royalty on net sales of Liverpool products. It would also promote the club through other influential athletes, such as Serena Williams and LeBron James, and popular musicians associated with the company, including rapper Drake.In addition, the report says Nike will distribute a new kit through ‘6,000 global doors’, compared to New Balance’s 3,000.In response, New Balance believes it can meet demand for Liverpool kit, having delivered tow of the biggest selling home kits for fans. A three-day trial to settle the legal dispute has been listed from 18th October. TagsPremiership NewsAbout the authorIan FerrisShare the loveHave your saylast_img read more

And if you put a portion of the profits of these small purchases toward important causes, big things happen.So in 2013 Merrick relaunched a line of uniquely flavored gums and mints made with no artificial colors, preservatives, or flavors. They’re also made here in the United States. He got creative with the flavors. Gum flavors include Birthday Cake, which tastes incredibly like birthday cake, but doesn’t require the aging; Wedding Cake, which demands no lifelong commitment in exchange; Rainbow Ice which is all the fun of a snow cone without the brain freeze; grapefruit melon; Sour Caramel Apple; Coconut Lime; even Front Porch Lemonade is like chewing summer afternoons in your mouth. In honor a century of Girl Scouts, Project 7 launched Girl Scout cookie flavored gum: You’ve got perennial favorites like Thin Mints and Samoas (though they call them Caramel Coconut). The gums are sugar free, so your dentist can’t be that mad.A new edition to the delicious Project 7 line is their gummies. But these aren’t your average gummie bears. Instead, Project 7 offers Champagne Dreams gummies, flavored like brut and rosé champagnes. Or get the party pack that combines some of the most popular gum flavors: Rainbow Ice, Birthday Cake, and Front Porch Lemonade. And the gummies use only organic sweeteners.What’s the changing the world bit of enjoying these treats? It’s all in the name. Merrick chose seven areas of need to support with proceeds from sales: Save the Earth, House the Homeless, Feed the Hungry, Quench the Thirsty, Heal the Sick, Teach Them Well, and Hope for Peace. Within each category Project 7 has partnered with leading organizations in the field. For example, to Feed the Hungry they work with Feeding America and Children’s Hunger Fund; Plant with Purpose and Trees, Water, People help them save the Earth; Samaritan’s Purse has Project 7’s help in housing the homeless, and Camfed, Love Does, and Pencils of Promise help education issues.To date, Project 7’s delicious gummies and gums have helped plant 4 million trees, provided 3.7 million meals here in the US, allowed for 1.1 million hours of education, provided 1.3 million hours of shelter for the homeless, ensured 1.3 million months of clean water, provided 35,000 students with anti-bullying education, and given 106 thousand malaria treatments.These thoughtfully made, uniquely flavored candies are the answer to sweet tooth cravings and a desire to better the world.

School Gets Support from Parenting Group

No Comments

first_imgThe Parenting Group at the Hammersmith Preparatory School, in Trelawny, has pledged to work with the institution, to ensure desired educational outcomes for their children. Speaking at the official opening of the school on April 26, President of the Parenting Group, Sharon Stewart, said they want growth for their children, and will be assisting the school to achieve that goal. “We anticipate growth, and as the physical expansion ensues, we will continue to work closely with the staff to ensure that we deliver the same quality results on a larger scale. We are confident that with a partnership concept, and the inspiration and involvement of this dynamic group of parents and others who will come on board, we can achieve together,” the President said. The school opened its doors over seven months ago and has some 70 students, with the Parenting Group having a membership of 150. Miss Stewart told the ceremony that from inception, the parents put forward their ideas on ways to create a culture where learning would be different and effective. “We were sold a vision…Parents are required to work endlessly with the teaching staff in assisting our children with the various home work and reading assignments, and we were asked to sign a parent partnership contract. We are held accountable as parents for the delivery on our promise to work with our children. The school has become deeply integrated into our homes and lives, as parents,” she stated. In her address, Principal of the school, Michel Shah, called for greater responsibility from all sections of the community to ensure the success of children at school. “Our Parenting partnership is vibrant and engaged. They bring extremely high expectations and back that up by working closely with us. They keep informed, involved and interested in the growth and development of both the children and the school, and we meet their interest with respect,” she said. For his part, Mayor of Falmouth, Councillor Garth Wilkinson, said teachers have a special role in the lives of children. “I strongly believe that every child should have a caring adult in his or her life, and they do not have to be parents or family members,” he said.

first_imgzoom South Korean shipping company Hyundai Merchant Marine has taken delivery of all six 10,000 TEU containerships with the addition of the final one, the Hyundai Pluto, on July 6.The new boxships started joining the company’s fleet in January 2016, when the first vessel of the type, the Hyundai Earth, joined its owner, followed shorty by another four 10,000 TEU vessels, the Hyundai Mars, Jupiter, Saturn and Neptune.All of the six vessels were chartered by UK’s ship management company Zodiac Maritime.HMM said that five of these vessels are operating on the North American east coast routes, which pass through the recently expanded Panama Canal, while the remaining one has been operating in South American west coast routes since January.With these deployments, the shipping firm increased its North American east coast fleet from 4,600 TEU vessels to more than 10,000 TEU ships.Earlier this week, the company said that it plans to expand its routes which link the Middle East and the Asia regions, as it aims to take advantage of a surge in shipping demand following the lifting of sanction on Iran.HMM, which currently operates one route between the Middle East and Asia, will send a total of twelve containerships to operate on two separate shipping routes between the regions.The shipping firm expects its market share for the route to grow from 8 percent to 13 percent.World Maritime News Stafflast_img read more

SC refuses protection from arrest to BSP MP Atul Rai

No Comments

first_imgNew Delhi: In a setback to newly elected BSP MP Atul Rai, the Supreme Court on Monday refused to grant him protection from arrest in a rape case while noting that 16 other criminal cases were pending against him.A vacation bench of Chief Justice Ranjan Gogoi and Justice Aniruddha Bose said it was not inclined to entertain the petition of Rai, who has won Lok Sabha election from Ghosi constituency in Uttar Pradesh by a margin of more than one lakh votes. Also Read – Pak activated 20 terror camps & 20 launch pads along LoCAt the outset, the bench asked the counsel for Rai about the number of criminal cases were pending against him. The counsel replied that the MP had 16 criminal cases pending against him and he was out on bail in all the cases except the rape case. The counsel also said that Rai had sought that the FIR against him in the rape case be quashed. “Sorry, we are not inclined to entertain this petition. Dismiss,” the bench said. The counsel then sought to withdraw the petition which was allowed by the court. Also Read – Two squadrons which participated in Balakot airstrike awarded citations”Counsel for the petitioner seeks leave of this Court to withdraw the present special leave petition. The special leave petition is dismissed as withdrawn,” the bench said. Earlier on May 17, the apex court had refused to grant interim protection from arrest to Rai who was then a SP-BSP alliance candidate from Ghosi Lok Sabha constituency in Uttar Pradesh. Rai, who was accused of raping a college student from Varanasi had then sought interim protection from arrest saying polling in his constituency was scheduled on May 19. “It is not a case for quashing. Fight it out. Fight the election and this case too,” the top court had told him. An FIR was registered against Rai on May 1 on a complaint by a college student who had alleged that he took her home on the pretext of meeting his wife but sexually assaulted her. The SP-BSP alliance candidate, who has denied the rape allegations, has been on the run since the lodging of the FIR. Rai had contended that there was no provision of anticipatory bail in Uttar Pradesh and the high court had on May 8 dismissed his petition seeking protection from arrest. Ghosi constituency falls in Mau district of Uttar Pradesh.last_img read more

Kanesatake Mohawks decry Oka mayors fear mongering ahead of potential land deal

No Comments

first_imgLindsay RichardsonAPTN NewsA series of public information sessions held this week in the Mohawk community of Kanesatake, and in the neighbouring municipality of Oka, have done little to assuage the population’s concerns regarding an ongoing land dispute.Hundreds packed a church Wednesday night in the community on the frontlines of the 1990 Oka Crisis to discuss the return of a pine forest as part of an ecological donation.(Outside the meeting in Oka, Que., Wednesday evening. Photo: Lindsay Richardson/APTN)Oka Mayor Pascal Quevillon says his community wants to discuss the proposed transfer with the federal government and says some in the community share his concerns.Quevillon has said he doesn’t want another Oka Crisis but fears one could be triggered, this time led by Oka residents worried about encroachment.Quevillon has been has been criticized for incendiary language – enough to be considered “hate speech” under the Criminal Code, according to Kanesatake Grand Chief Serge Simon.After rumours spread that the meeting Wednesday was closed to Mohawks, members set up a demonstration outside the church and started drumming.Quevillon tried several times to close the door to drown out the sound of drumming.Some Oka citizens tried to start a dispute, telling the drummers they “don’t belong here.”(Members of Kanesatake Mohawk Territory in Oka Wednesday night. Photo: Lindsay Richardson/APTN)Kanesatake Grand Chief Serge Simon says he’s worried about the tone of the Oka mayor’s comments, which he says contain a lot of misinformation.But Quevillon doubled down, saying the adjacent Mohawk community has illegal dumps and cannabis and cigarette merchants, and he doesn’t want those coming into his town.Gregoire Gollin, a private developer, said he acted in the spirit of reconciliation in an agreement reached last month to cede 60 hectares of forest known as The Pines to the local Mohawk council as an ecological gift through a federal government program.Gollin said he’s also prepared to discuss the sale of an additional 150 hectares he owns in Oka to the federal government to transfer to the Mohawk community – nearly half of which he said is adjacent to land owned by Kanesatake.Simon has not escaped criticism from community members.He was called out during an information session at Kanesatake’s high school on Tuesday night.Community members say he hasn’t been transparent enough leading up to the agreement-in-principle, even though he promised they’d have the final say before the deal is approved.Kanesatake residents only received details about the proposed agreement with the developer on Tuesday – two months after the prospective deal was reported on by local media.Since the series of meetings, tensions are steadily mounting between the two feuding communities – despite Quevillion’s appeal for peace and calm.On Thursday morning, a Mohawk man parked in a lot outside the same church was blocked in by two Surete du Quebec (Quebec provincial police) vehicles, and was asked to leave because “the city of Oka owns” the space.The man in question, Joshua Smith-Gabriel, says this is indicative of the relationship between the communities.“This is Kanehsatake every day. Monkey see, monkey do,” he said in a Facebook live video of the encounter.Later on Thursday, a number of community members set up along Route 344 at the Kanesatake border, draping flags, lighting a fire, and hanging out to raise awareness.A confrontation erupted with CTV and TVA showed up with cameras – a community member chased them off, calling them liars and troublemakers.The TVA reporter then accused the Mohawks of “being racist.”lrichardson@aptn.ca@sentimtlWith files from the Canadian Presslast_img read more

TSX snaps threeday winning streak as oil declines loonie also falls

TSX snaps three-day winning streak as oil declines; loonie also falls by Linda Nguyen, The Canadian Press Posted Apr 21, 2016 6:33 am MDT Last Updated Apr 21, 2016 at 3:14 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Crude values retreated Thursday, tempering expectations of a sustained rise in oil prices that has fuelled gains in the Toronto stock market in recent days.The S&P/TSX composite index fell 30.09 points to 13,881.20 as the June contract for North American benchmark crude slid $1 to US$43.18 a barrel. Oil had closed at a five-month high on Wednesday on positive data about U.S. crude inventories.The majority of sectors on the TSX were lower, with metals, consumer staples and real estate being the heaviest decliners. Gains in gold and materials stocks helped offset some of those losses.The decline in crude also weighed on the Canadian dollar, with the oil-sensitive loonie losing almost half a cent, falling 0.48 of a U.S. cent to 78.57 cents US.“The rally in oil prices has been a key catalyst for the pushing the loonie higher, but my view is that the loonie is likely to remain range-bound in the mid-70 (U.S. cent range), at least for a little while longer,” said Craig Fehr, a Canadian markets strategist at Edward Jones in St. Louis.“We could see a pullback in oil prices in the near term and that will obviously put downward pressure on the Canadian dollar.”Wall Street markets also turned lower, as the Dow Jones industrial average registered a 113.75-point decline to 17,982.52, while the S&P 500 lost 10.92 points to 2,091.48. The tech-heavy Nasdaq edged down 2.24 points to 4,945.89.Telecom and utilities stocks saw the biggest declines in New York after those sectors experienced some of the biggest gains so far this year.Internationally, investors were digesting the recent policy meeting of the European Central Bank. The ECB announced that it was going to leave its key interest rates unchanged at zero as it assesses whether current record lows will stimulate the tepid recovery in the 19 countries that share the euro currency.The refinancing rate determines the cost of central bank credit to commercial banks, and through that steers many other short-term lending rates.The central bank also didn’t touch its rate of minus 0.4 per cent on funds left on deposit at the central bank by commercial banks. That unusual negative rate is aimed at getting banks to lend the money, not stash it.“Global investors are largely expecting the European Central Bank to continue exploring and implement aggressive policies to stimulate the economy,” said Fehr.“Today’s announcement that the rates are being held steady… was a disappointment to some investors.”Elsewhere on commodity markets, the June gold contract shed $4.10 to US$1,250.30 a troy ounce. The May contract for natural gas was unchanged at US$2.07 per mmBtu, while the May copper contract added a penny to US$2.25 a pound.— With files from The Associated PressFollow @LindaNguyenTO on Twitter. read more

Motor industry initial response to Budget

No Comments

VED BandCO2ChangePetrolDiesel Input / output% change% change% change 200420053 months to Jan 06 SMMT, the body representing automotive manufacturers, has warned that today’s road tax changes send a worrying message to consumers and car makers about the future of motoring taxes. ‘Stability, certainty and long-term must be the watchwords when changing sensitive tax instruments’, commented SMMT chief executive, Christopher Macgowan. ‘None appear to have been applied here. Now the uncertainty that followed the collapse of grants for the cleanest vehicles1 will be mirrored by fears about a budget-by-budget bidding war on road tax changes.’ The industry acknowledges some reduction for lower emitting models but buyers of many other larger family cars and saloons will pay more at the new top rate; eight per cent of the market.2 The changes will also bring more administrative pressure to manufacturers and dealers in replacing all colour-coded environmental labels in new car showrooms. This comes at a time when manufacturers, dealer staff and consumers are becoming more familiar with this fledgling initiative, designed to give buyers more information about CO2 emissions – and annual running costs – at the point of sale. On wider competitiveness issues, Christopher Macgowan added, ‘The motor industry is a key value-add sector. The media focus on VED masks the more serious issue of support for manufacturing. As cost and legislative pressures mount, we heard nothing to help ease costs, reduce the amount of red tape and drive a manufacturing sector accounting for more than 220,000 jobs to a more competitive future.’ The table below illustrates the squeeze on competitiveness, with input costs rising by a factor of four compared to output prices. It also reveals the huge increase in fuel costs over the last two years and, more recently, in the last three months. Output prices+1.1%+1.4%+1.1% B101-120-£35£40£50 Total input costs+2.2%+5.2%+4.0% Electricity+6.6%+33.9%+49.8% Does this signal a budget-by-budget bidding war for road tax increases? Automotive sector £9.8bn value-add to UK economy, 12.4 per cent of exports Budget unlikely to stem the erosion of UK competitiveness Fuel costs A100g and under-£65£0£0 3. New colour-coded label: In July 2005, SMMT and the Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP) introduced a new colour-coded label for new car buyers. The label shows CO2 emissions by vehicle in a familiar format, similar to that used for white goods. The bands run from green to red, and were based on CO2 emissions corresponding directly to existing VED rates. The introduction of a new band means all labels in every showroom will now have to be ripped up, reconfigured and replaced. 4. The new VED rates from 23 March as announced by the Chancellor.

Powershift grants: It’s now more than a year since new car buyers received government grants to buy cleaner vehicles. The collapse of the Powershift grant scheme last year – and lack of any replacement – created uncertainty for manufacturers and consumers. Sales of cleaner, new petrol/gas cars plummeted as a result, down from 3,185 cars in 2003 to just 489 last year. 2.

Football JK Dobbins shines in first game as starter at running back

No Comments

Freshman running back J.K. Dobbins (2) watches as teammate J.T. Barrett runs the ball for a touchdown during the season opener vs Indiana. Credit: Jack Westerheide | Photo EditorBLOOMINGTON, Ind — From the first play in Ohio State’s 49-21 win over Indiana, the Buckeyes’ offense was carried by running back J.K. Dobbins — a true freshman.Two plays later, he caught a pass on a wheel route for 18 yards. And for the rest of the game, it was more of the same as he continued to demonstrate both his ability to shake defenders loose with his elusiveness in the open field, as well as the physicality needed to plow through the defensive line.For coach Urban Meyer, Dobbins’ big performance Thursday was less of a shock and more of a reflection of what the coaches have seen since he arrived in Columbus.“I kind of tempered my emotions with [the media] early on, because we have seen that since spring practice. He has had a hell of a camp,” Meyer said.OSU freshman running back J.K. Dobbins (2) carries the ball during the Spring Game on April 15. Scarlet beat Gray 38-31. Credit: Alexa Mavrogianis | Former Photo EditorBy the end of the game, Dobbins had set a record for the most rushing yards by an Ohio State first-year running back in the first game of the season with 182 yards on 29 carries.He did not enter the week as the starter, however.In the team’s depth chart, Dobbins was listed as an ‘Or’ alongside Mike Weber, last season’s starter. Meyer noted Thursday night that Weber was still only at 80 percent and that while Weber could have gone, the preference was to not play him.The chance to start came at a time when Dobbins had southeast Texas on his mind. The native of La Grange, Texas, which is a 101-mile drive west of Houston, said his family has been safe from the effects of Hurricane Harvey that has ravaged the Houston area since last weekend, but he still has friends in the city who have dealt with the storm’s destruction.“[I] kind of thought of it as motivation for me because I’m probably the only positive thing going on in my town right now,” Dobbins said. “I just thought of it as bringing my city up. So, that’s why I came out here and played as hard as I could.”Then, a couple days before the game, Dobbins learned he would be starting in his first game with the Buckeyes, and would get that chance to provide a light for what has been a dark time in his hometown. “I thought I was going to start midway through the week whenever Weber was — he’s having a hamstring problem so, I just, when I heard that I just thought of it as an open opportunity for me,” Dobbins said.Nearly two weeks ago, running backs coach Tony Alford, said he believed the freshman would have a substantial impact this season. After his performance against the Hoosiers, wide receiver Johnnie Dixon, who worked out with Dobbins during the summer, said the 18-year-old’s dedication to the work and ability to make challenging tasks look effortless has really caught his eye.Ohio State freshman running back J.K. Dobbins prepares for practice at fall camp on Aug. 5. Credit: Colin Hass-Hill | Sports Editor.“A lot of kids come in and they don’t really have it from Day One. [Dobbins] had it from Day One,” Dixon said. “Even watching him in spring, I’m like, this kid is amazing. And I knew that he would get out here and do the same thing we see in practice all the time. It was just, nobody else really know because they don’t see it. But the kid — the sky’s the limit for that kid for sure.”Judging from the Texan’s performance on the big stage, Meyer said he seems some of the same characteristics in Dobbins that he saw in another former running back.“He’s close [to Ezekiel Elliott]. Yeah, he’s very similar to Zeke,” Meyer said. “Very similar about the way he works. He handles his business like a pro. I mean he walked in like a grown man.”Though the players and coaches see a potential breakout talent in Dobbins, Meyer said he is expecting Weber to return next week and for him to slide right back into the mix for playing time.Meyer would not go so far as to say who would be out there taking the opening snaps in the against Oklahoma on Sept. 9, but he said he knows he can expect more of the same from Dobbins in the weeks to come.“J.K. Weber,” Meyer said jokingly, when asked who would start next week. “We get Mike back next week, and that is going to be a nice one-two punch. J.K. has even more in the tank.” read more

All the survey respondents said they wrote based on their personal experiences.While 27% say they earn money from their blog (compared to the European average of 45%), almost all of the bloggers (91%) have been contacted regularly by companies for PR and marketing. Ninety-six per cent say they are happy to be contacted by companies.The main reasons for having a blog, according to those surveyed, are to share information and experiences (73%) and for professional development (48%).Twitter and Facebook are the leading social networks used by the bloggers surveyed, with 94% and 87% signed up respectively. Fifty-nine per cent use Instagram, 56% Pinterest, 28% YouTube and 23% LinkedIn.Over 1,200 bloggers from Ireland, Northern Ireland, Germany, Finland, Italy, Great Britain, Spain, Slovenia and the Czech Republic were interviewed for the inaugural IPREX European Blogbarometer poll.

The cell phone has become as important as your wallet to take with you wherever you go. Some would argue that it’s even more essential now that handheld computers have morphed into a ubiquitous Internet access device for most physicians. As screen quality on these devices has improved and tablet computers have rapidly proliferated, their viability for use in medical imaging has become a common expectation among physicians. In fact, nearly 80 percent of physicians are using smart phones and mobile devices in their medical practice, with interest in mobile viewing of patient images increasing daily. The pixels on today’s cell phones and mobile tablets are numerous and small enough to feed your eyes as much as they can see, and are sufficiently bright to be seen in most lighting conditions. So, why not rely on them as a convenient, portable diagnostic imaging tool around the hospital? DICOM MattersFor one, today’s mobile devices are not specifically designed for diagnostic imaging applications, mostly because they are unable to maintain continuous, accurate digital imaging and communications in medicine (DICOM) calibration due to a lack of internal or external sensors necessary to achieve it.  Secondly, in order to utilize a mobile device for diagnostic image review, it must be DICOM-compliant, i.e., maintain image quality similar to a high-resolution radiology display.A DICOM-calibrated image provides accurate image representation and confidence for the medical professional. Once a screen is calibrated properly, radiologists can diagnose images from most modalities, like computed tomography (CT), magnetic resonance (MR), ultrasound, computed radiography (CR) and digital radiography (DR), which have been cleared by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for diagnostic reading on a mobile tablet when proper quality measures are in place. The Mobile Imaging Calibration ChallengeSeveral options exist for calibrating mobile tablets based on the use of a “tap test.” A visual calibration process provides DICOM performance based on a user’s eyesight level and dynamic contrast available in the given ambient light conditions to make proper diagnosis. The calibration is conducted using a third-party software tool integrated into any authorized mobile viewer application that has obtained all required registrations and certifications as specified by the FDA. Once properly calibrated, the mobile tablet can display images with excellent clarity and precision for modalities currently deemed acceptable by the FDA. A DICOM-calibrated tablet can be a convenient alternative in case of emergency situations when a diagnostic display isn’t available, when a primary diagnosis has already been made using a full-size display, for consulting with other clinicians and in patient consultations.Form Follows FunctionImagine trying to navigate a path across the United States on a screen the size of your wristwatch. Regardless of how many pixels are crammed onto the display, and no matter how much zooming and panning you do, it’s nearly impossible to get a good feel for the path with such a limited viewport. The same applies in viewing medical imaging studies: Overall size of the device is an important factor with respect to the image area. For example, it’s difficult to properly evaluate an entire radiograph of the chest on a three- to four-inch diagonal smart phone screen. While it may be possible to accurately read a large-matrix image like this on a tablet computer, no radiologist would desire to read 100 chest X-rays on such a small device. It’s just too cumbersome to do on more than an occasional basis; it’s time-consuming and just plain ill-advised. Furthermore, radiography has larger demands when it comes to luminance. For primary diagnosis, no less than 350 cd/m2 should be used and ideally 400 cd/m2. But, that’s only if primary diagnosis is required. By the same token, the luminance of most smart phones and tablets is perfectly acceptable in cases where a primary care doctor is reviewing findings made by a radiologist using a full-size display. For smaller size modalities like CT and MRI, most smart phone screens are typically up to the task, as long as luminance is around 200 cd/m2. Naturally, the larger 9-inch tablet screens are even better suited for viewing these images. The FDA has cleared the use of some mobile device software for small matrix images (non-radiography) only when there is no access to a full workstation. Their evaluation of these software programs continues to evolve.The Pixel/Image Quality ParadigmAs the new American College of Radiology (ACR) guidelines point out, the number of pixels is a handy way to describe a display, but it’s not really important when it comes to medical imaging. What matters most is the size of those pixels relative to the distance you hold the device away from your eyes. The closer you hold it, the smaller the pixels should be to maximize what you can see. In the Apple “retinal” display, the pixels are just below the threshold of what your eye can discriminate (so, theoretically, there’s no point in making them any smaller). The larger the screen, the further away one tends to hold it and, therefore, the larger the pixels can be. So, while every display has a number of pixels you can count, that number alone is insufficient to describe the resolution characteristics of a display.Convenience in the Clinical SettingTablet computers are ideal for reviewing clinical images during rounds, and by residents and attendings as a portable viewer — but only for images upon which primary diagnosis has already been performed.  They can and should replace the clipboard, we believe. We also would argue that a radiologist can perform primary diagnosis on one if it is properly calibrated, and only if sufficient time is spent thoroughly examining the image with optimal zooming and panning to view enough of the original pixels. We urge caution in cases where residents are inclined to make primary diagnoses themselves — such as in intensive care units (ICUs) and other tertiary care settings. Extreme care should be exercised to use proper displays for those purposes, lest they improperly treat a patient due to use of a substandard or uncalibrated display.On the HorizonThe usability of mobile devices in diagnostic imaging will be enhanced by increased speed and coverage of wireless networks and faster processors with lower power requirements, resulting in longer battery life. Further improvements are necessary to guarantee an effective method of ensuring image quality — including DICOM compliance — as well as tracking and documenting that information. The user-interfaces of these devices will continue to improve, making these tools even more useful and intuitive in the future.   itnDavid Hirschorn, M.D., is director of radiology informatics, Staten Island University Hospital, and researcher in radiology informatics, Massachusetts General Hospital.

He spoke at the 2019 Radiology AIMed conference. Deep learning algorithms require large amounts of patient case data to train the systems to read medical images automatically without human intervention. However, in pediatrics, there are often much lower numbers of normal and abnormal scans that can be used compared to vast amounts of adult exams available. This makes it difficult to train systems, so AI developers are coming up with innovative new ways to train their software. Compounding issues with training pediatric imaging AI is that the normal ranges change very quickly for young children due to their rapid development. He explained what is normal for a 2-year-old may not be normal for a 5-year-old.Desai and other pediatric physicians who spoke at the conference said AI could have a big impact on pediatric imaging where there are not enough specialists for the increasing image volumes.

Go back to the enewsletter After a bank devalua

No Comments

first_imgGo back to the e-newsletter >After a bank devaluation on Tuesday 12 August 2015, the world of luxury retail took a hit as China’s currency dropped to its lowest since August 2011. The impact of this devaluation has extended to the luxury industry and Chinese consumers may alter the way they spend on luxury brands in the coming future.Luxury brand companies such as BMW, Swatch Group and LVMH saw their shares decline as much as 5%. Prices of luxury goods may increase overseas to compensate for the decrease in China; likely making imported goods more expensive within China.LVMH’s leather goods sales in China, Macau and Hong Kong have declined 10% in the first half of 2015. This followed the government’s suppression of  corruption in the sales of high-end goods. Around 40% of luxury goods sold in China have been purchased in Europe and resold illegally in China, avoiding the taxes usually placed on such items.The impact of the Yuan devaluation on Hong Kong’s luxury market is yet to be seen, as devoted luxury shoppers respond to an increased price fluctuation of 2-4%.Currency fluctuations are not the major factor influencing the decline in luxury retail. Chinese shoppers are still travelling internationally for their luxury brand needs, seeking better prices and service in Europe. Luxury retailers in China may prevail with a focus on other aspects of luxury shopping, such as in-store experiences for customers.Asia Pacific hosts four of the world’s top 10 luxury good markets in Japan, China, South Korea and Hong Kong. Ms. Roberts of Euromonitor, a market intelligence firm, however, says that “The region should not be regarded as a safe haven for growth over the next five years and many luxury brands are now realising this and turning their attention to other markets.”This raises the question: what could this mean for outbound travellers from China? Perhaps more importantly, what could this mean for Australian’s travelling to China in the future?Go back to the e-newsletter >last_img read more
