Rabat – King Mohammed VI has congratulated the newly-elected French president Emmanuel Macron on winning by 66% to 34% margin Marine Le Pen’s Front National, said a communiqué issued by the Royal cabinet on Tuesday.The independent centrist candidate gained 66% of the votes in France’s second round of presidential elections, strongly beating his far-right opponent Marine Le Pen.In a phone conversation with the 39-year-old pro-European Union president, the King, who is currently in France, extended his congratulations to Macron for his win, which was made possible by enormous support for his vision of France’s future and the well-being of its citizens, said the communiqué. The King and Macron highlighted the positive relationship between the two countries in all fields, as well as the mutual will to consolidate and enrich their exceptional partnership, the communiqué added.Following his victory on the weekend, Macron, a former economy minister, has pledged to unite the French citizens.“I will do everything to make sure you never have reason again to vote for extremes,” he said while he was addressing thousands of supporters in the grand courtyard of the Louvre.“[The world is] watching us and waiting for us to defend the spirit of the Enlightenment, threatened in so many places,” Macron said.Following the election, the outgoing Socialist president, François Hollande, who is expected to formally deliver the presidential seat to Macron on Sunday, said, “His large victory confirms that a very great majority of our citizens wanted to unite around the values of the Republic and show their attachment to the European Union and show France is open to the world.”Earlier this month, King Mohammed VI met with Hollande for a luncheon at the Élysée Palace in the presence of members of the governments.The two Heads of State expressed their mutual feelings of esteem and respect, which they said were the basis of the renewal of French-Moroccan partnerships in security, sustainable development, culture, and education. read more

The main opposition UNP today condemned violence against places of religious worship saying it is deeply wounding the sentiments of entire communities of people in Sri Lanka.UNP MP Karu Jayasuriya said that the recent escalation of religious tensions in the country has given rise to a deep sense of foreboding and a profound sadness for him, and others in the United National Party. However he says Sri Lanka is staring once more down the abyss of communal and religious strife and perceived differences are threatening to tear the country apart as religion threatens to become the great divide. He said that for too long, Sri Lanka had been a society divided and people from every community and walk of life, were crying out for healing and reconciliation and in the new Sri Lanka, after the end of the conflict, the only identity that should have mattered was the Sri Lankan one. “Our regret is shared by the vast majority of moderates who reside in our society, to whom the actions of a few misguided, malicious elements have been both distasteful and of very serious concern. Any Buddhist citizen of this country would empathise with this sadness and despair, having lived through the violent desecration of this country’s most sacred Buddhist shrine, the Dalada Maligawa by brutal terrorists in 1998.  I am a Buddhist by birth and upbringing. Throughout my life, I have strived to live the teachings of the Great Master. I find great dissonance in the rhetoric of hate, intolerance and anger that is currently being perpetuated in the name of Buddhism. I cannot comprehend this sense of deep insecurity that causes elements of our society to act out this way, when it was the Buddha himself who taught that the Dhamma is best protected by practicing it,” he said.  (Colombo Gazette) read more

Local motorists will soon receive electronic reminders to respect the posted speed limit.After months of lobbying by the Norfolk OPP and the Norfolk Police Services Board, the county has agreed to invest in electronic speed-watch technology.Most by now are familiar with roadside signs telling motorists how fast they are travelling and whether they are within the posted limit.A large electronic trailer has appeared on occasion in problem areas of Norfolk in recent years. The Norfolk OPP borrowed this from a neighbouring detachment.At Tuesday’s meeting, Norfolk council agreed to buy a trailer along with six smaller, post-mounted units that serve the same purpose.“Other municipalities are way ahead of us in having this signage on their highways,” Delhi Coun. Mike Columbus said.The total value of the expenditure is $63,500.Norfolk’s PSB and the Norfolk OPP would like the county to invest in another 24 pole-mounted speed monitors over the next four years. Council, however, has put that on hold until it reviews the county’s road-safety needs.For Insp. Joe Varga, chief of the Norfolk OPP, this week’s expenditure is a step in the right direction.Varga likes the electronic signage because it is interactive. Too often, he said, motorists are “mesmerized” by the driving experience and miss passive signage marking a change in the speed limit. Speed-watch signage, he said, snaps them out of it.“Enforcement alone is not going to solve the speeding issue in the county,” Varga said. “We have to look at other measures, and one of these is the speed-watch signs.”Speed-watch signs are solar-powered and programmable. Based on radar technology, the signage gives an instant read-out of an approaching vehicle’s speed and says whether it is above or below the posted limit.Hamlet areas, school zones, construction zones, and areas where there have been complaints about speeding are primary candidates for placement. Part of the attraction of this technology is it can be moved around to problem areas as needed.MSonnenberg@postmedia.com read more

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon today announced the appointment of Abdoulaye Bathily of Senegal as his new Deputy Special Representative for the United Nations Multidimensional Integrated Stabilization Mission in Mali (MINUSMA).Mr. Bathily has been serving as Senior Minister in the office of the President of Senegal since 2012. Prior to this, he served as minister of the environment and as minister of energy.Mr. Bathily also served as a Member of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS) Parliament, member of the African Union Contact Group on the crisis in Madagascar, and participated in various conflict resolution missions to countries in West Africa, including Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea Bissau, Niger, Guinea and Mali.In addition, he has extensive knowledge of African history, and has taught and published extensively on this subject.In April, the Security Council approved the 12,600-strong MINUSMA to take over from the African-led force, authorizing the blue helmets “to use all necessary means” to carry out security-related stabilization tasks, protect civilians, UN staff and cultural artefacts and create the conditions for provision of humanitarian aid.MINUSMA’s core task is to support the political process in Mali, in close coordination with the African Union (AU) and the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS).Also today, the Secretary-General appointed David Gressly of the United States as Deputy Special Representative at MINUSMA who will serve as UN Resident Coordinator, Humanitarian Coordinator and Resident Representative of the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP).Mr. Gressly has more than 20 years of experience with the UN system, having served with the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) in various capacities, including in Nigeria, Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea and Senegal. He served as Regional Coordinator in the UN Mission in Sudan (UNMIS) from 2008 to 2011; and subsequently as Regional Humanitarian Coordinator for the Sahel from 2012 to 2013, where he led the humanitarian response to the food security and nutrition crisis in the region last year.Most recently, Mr. Gressly has served as Head of Mission for the UN Office in Mali (UNOM) and following the arrival of the Special Representative of the Secretary-General for Mali, Albert Gerard (Bert) Koenders, has served as Acting Deputy Special Representative of the Secretary-General in MINUSMA. read more

first_imgIn response to requests from its customers, Booyco Electronics has incorporated new features into its innovative Sentient handheld Environmental Sensing Instrument (ESI), effectively creating what it says is “the most cost effective, sophisticated and low maintenance gas detection device in the mining industry. This hi-tech device has been developed specifically to boost safety underground and in any confined spaces in surface plants.Locally designed and manufactured it is now the first multi-gas instrument in South Africa that also measures relative humidity as a standard offering. In addition, the Sentient is able to record specific gas values when inserted into a Fire Patrol outstation installed in a specific area of the underground environment. The identity of the outstation is linked to the instrument after every shift, when information is downloaded as the Sentient rests in its charger, effectively generating a fire patrol report.The downloading network configuration is capable of gathering information from up to 500 Sentient units placed in their chargers, in a matter of minutes. All this equipment is connected via a network to the Sentient downloading server, where specialised software allows various reports to be generated, such as detailed information on gas detected in the underground environment, peak values, TWA values, pre-shift tested values, calibration reports and no movement reports. Sentient software is web-based, making it possible to e-mail these reports to relevant personnel automatically.In addition to the hardwired network in the mine’s lamp room, Sentient instruments can also be equipped with an RF radio, allowing exception reports to be downloaded to RF readers installed at strategic locations. Provided these ‘hot spots’ are connected to the mine’s communication infrastructure, the downloaded exception information can be made available in real time to centres such as the lamp room, control room or ventilation department.This capability means that all exceptions can be received, reviewed and processed when miners were exposed to any gas related risks during their shift, for example, oxygen deficiency, the presence of carbon monoxide or methane, as well as fatigue from high humidity.The inner mechanism of the device is sealed, so that although sensor units are regularly removed and replaced, there is no opportunity for moisture to penetrate the sensitive working parts. The low maintenance Sentient also has no buttons — instead an innovative ‘tap’ sensor ensures that the instrument remains watertight.The instrument is able to accommodate up to three ‘plug and play’ sensors, typically CH4, CO and O2. Among its unique features is a ‘drop protection’ capability that automatically switches off the sensor as a protective measure if the instrument is dropped, significantly increasing sensor life.Ancillary Sentient equipment is installed in the lamp room, improving legal compliance. This equipment includes downloading chargers, auto test points with Go/No go indication, and auto calibration banks.Packaged in an IP68 enclosure, the low maintenance Sentient has been certified as EXia T4 Intrinsically Safe, and complies with relevant SANS1515 requirements.last_img read more

first_imgStay on target NASA Says 2 Asteroids Will Safely Fly By Earth This WeekendScientists Discover Possible Interstellar Visitor Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.center_img As countless conspiracy theorists, the world over have suspected, the Department of Defense has been investigating the presence of UFOs for years. The department came clean, over the weekend, declassifying a number of files and topics related to the investigation. But… the world will be reeling from this for a while.The reports could be read as confirmation that extraterrestrials have been to earth. After all, there are some meaty quotes from Pentagon officials and senators seemingly confirming that we’re dealing with some legitimately bizarre shit. “We’re sort of in the position of what would happen if you gave Leonardo da Vinci garage-door opener,” Harry E. Puthoff an engineer who worked as a contractor on the project told the New York Times. “First of all, he’d try to figure out what is this plastic stuff. He wouldn’t know anything about the electromagnetic signals involved or its function.”The project, kept largely secret even from many US senators and representatives, essentially hid $22 million for the program in budgets. This “black money” then went to Bigelow Aerospace (yes, that one). Where it helped fund research.In one of the weirdest quotes from theTimes piece, Bigelow oversaw the storage of ostensibly alien alloys throughout Las Vegas. “Under Mr. Bigelow’s direction, the company modified buildings in Las Vegas for the storage of metal alloys and other materials,” the Times writes. “Program contractors said [the alloys] had been recovered from unidentified aerial phenomena. Researchers also studied people who said they had experienced physical effects from encounters with the objects and examined them for any physiological changes.”This isn’t confirmation of alien visitors per se (and no such confirmation lies in either the Times report or in anything that’s come out from the DoD), but it is really friggin’ weird. Made even more so, by the fact that former Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid said: “If anyone says they have the answers now, they’re fooling themselves… We do not know.”Robert Bigelow of Bigelow Aerospace, though, is definitely convinced otherwise. Earlier this year, we reported that Bigelow was “absolutely convinced” that we are not alone. And, in light of this declassification, that makes quite a bit of sense.“I’m absolutely convinced,” he said at the time. “That’s all there is to it… There has been and is an existing presence, an ET presence. And I spent millions and millions and millions — I probably spent more as an individual than anybody else in the United States has ever spent on the subject.”Despite that, though, this program didn’t apparently yield many answers. We’ve found some weird stuff, that much seems incontrovertible at this point, but despite Bigelow’s protestations, we still don’t know.What is known, is that at least some of these crafts are not US experiments (unless part of the government is keeping stuff secret from another part, which wouldn’t surprise me, because see all of the above). And, more importantly, the Department of Defense is very concerned about the irrelevance of their own technology in the face of… something.The threads tying all of this together are Navy pilots. According to the Times, many fighter pilots have seen bizarre and unexplained phenomena while flying. This is what ultimately led Senators Ted Stevens and Harry Reid to help squirrel away the cash for the project. Most of these sightings are of apparent hovercraft with no visible means to keep itself airborne or super high-speed craft with no apparent propulsion. Videos from the planes seemingly confirm the sightings, but it’s still scant evidence. So what to make of this? We have the declassifications so many have waited for, but it mostly just raises more questions. As always, it’s possible, of course, that we’re talking aliens. But the odds are so remote. You’d think there’d be something, anything we can verify with other instruments. Some electromagnetic signal. Some clues somewhere. Or, maybe Wakanda or some other hyper-advanced nation exists here on Earth. That’d be something, yeah?last_img read more

first_img Share House Speaker Joe Straus keeps watch on the chamber during debate on Senate Bill 6 on municipal annexation on Aug. 11, 2017. Bob Daemmrich for the Texas TribuneHouse Speaker Joe Straus keeps watch on the chamber during debate on Senate Bill 6 on municipal annexation on Aug. 11, 2017.Joe Straus wants a committee to look at the state’s economic competitiveness and make sure the state government doesn’t spoil a high-functioning business environment.That might be a good government idea. It’s a great political idea.The House speaker’s timing is adroit. The new House Select Committee on Economic Competitiveness is on a short fuse, with 60 days to “look at issues such as workforce readiness, infrastructure and state and local economic development tools,” according to the speaker’s announcement. “The committee will also study the reasons that employers give for choosing, or not choosing, to do business in a particular state.” To keep his momentum — not to mention the state representatives most likely to keep him in the speaker’s chair for two more years — Straus and the establishment Republicans need continuing support from the business leaders who opposed the bathroom bill.One faction wants the primaries to be a debate over morals. Straus wants a focus on the Texas economy, and his new committee could offer protection to candidates making that argument.One sees a shield, the other a fig leaf.center_img In case that’s too indirect, think bathrooms. Straus came out on the winning sidein the Texas Legislature’s recent rumbles over whether and how to regulate which restrooms and other facilities transgender Texans should be allowed to use. His argument — bolstered, late in the game, by a swell of support from business leaders — was that proposed state regulations would hurt the state’s image with the people making decisions about business expansions and relocations.Those business leaders argued that regulations like those considered in Texas and passed or considered in other states were inconsiderate of their employees and customers.“Our companies are competing every day to bring the best and brightest talent to Dallas,” a group of North Texas CEOs said in a letter, one of several from businesses in and outside of the state. “To that end, we strongly support diversity and inclusion. This legislation threatens our ability to attract and retain the best talent in Texas, as well as the greatest sporting and cultural attractions in the world.”Another letter, this one from San Antonio executives, was explicit: “Controversial issues, such as regulation of bathrooms, divert much needed attention from what really matters.”Bathrooms aren’t the only variable in the business development equation, but they’re the topical one, splitting incumbent Republican lawmakers and their potential challengers into factions on an issue of some interest to primary voters.Among other things, those primaries will answer a question that animated much of the regular and special legislative sessions this year: Are conservative voters in sync with conservative business leaders, or are lawmakers who sided with business in danger when those voters enter polling places next year? The March 6 primaries are less than five months away. Candidates who want to run in 2018 have to file with the state by Dec. 11.The deadline for the new committee’s report is Dec. 12.“The world is watching, from CEOs to the best and brightest workers,” Straus said in a news release. “They need to see that Texas welcomes them and is determined to stay at the front of the pack when it comes to economic development.”Straus wants the committee “to highlight the principles that the Texas House believes are critical to economic growth.” He mentioned tax breaks and incentive funds already in place, but said businesses are also looking for good public and higher education and “a high quality of life for their employees.”State Rep. Byron Cook, R-Corsicana, will chair the panel. He’s the chairman of the House State Affairs Committee, and he’s also the legislator blamed by many “bathroom bill” supporters for killing their proposal in the Texas House. Cook survived a challenge in last year’s Republican primary from Thomas McNutt, getting 225 more of the 28,617 votes cast in that race.That’s tight. McNutt, part of the family that built a prosperous fruitcake company, the Collin Street Bakery, is planning to come back for another swing at Cook.That won’t be the only race where this comes up. The bathroom bill is a classic wedge issue, dividing one group of Republicans from another in a way that makes voters’ choices seem clearer.Social conservatives have had an outsized voice in recent Republican primaries. One great example was the 2014 race for lieutenant governor where then-state Sen. Dan Patrick of Houston beat three statewide elected officials — Lt. Gov. David Dewhurst, Land Commissioner Jerry Patterson and Agriculture Commissioner Todd Staples — by running as the most conservative choice.last_img read more

first_imgImage Resizer for Windows by Martin Brinkmann on January 14, 2017 in Software – Last Update: January 14, 2017 – 18 commentsImage Resizer for Windows is a free, open source program for Microsoft Windows devices to resize images straight from Explorer.Windows users have quite the diverse selection of tools at their disposal when it comes to image manipulation.Microsoft Paint, or the Windows Photos app, may be all that is needed in some cases to resize an image or modify it in other ways.But the tools that these default programs offer are basic when compared to image editors. There is also a group of programs that is designed to resize images, and that is all they do. Image Resizer for Windows falls in that category.Image Resizer for WindowsThe application has been designed to resize images quickly. It needs to be installed before you can make use of it. Please note that Image Resizer for Windows requires the Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0.It works by right-clicking images in Windows Explorer / File Explorer, and selecting the “resize pictures” option that it adds to the context menu of images.This opens the main interface of the application. It displays four default resize options, small, medium, large and mobile, and an option to resize the selected images using custom dimensions.If you select custom, you can furthermore select to have the program scale the images, or stretch them. The program remembers the custom setting, so that you can re-use it later on without having to make the changes again first.The program saves the processed copy of the original image to the same directory. You can configure it to overwrite the original instead by checking “replace the originals” in the interface.The two remaining options are to configure the software to “only shrink pictures”, and to “ignore picture rotations”. The first ensures that images are not enlarged when the source resolution is lower than the target resolution.The advanced options button is not functional yet. It spawns a “coming soon” window that reveals future features such as editable default sizes, options to select the JPEG quality level, to minimize files, and to use custom file names.Closing WordsImage Resizer for Windows is an easy to use program. It does not get in your way when you don’t need it, and can be launched directly from Windows Explorer. This means that you can invoke it from open and save file dialogs as well.The program lacks features that give you control over the process though. While you can set a custom resolution for the resizing, you cannot change quality levels, and get no previews as well. The latter is probably the biggest issue right now, considering that you get no information on the source resolution.An option to use percent values to resize images would be handy to bypass this restriction somewhat.

Biopsy occurs less often and rates of false-negative screening results are low. The analysis is published in Annals of Internal Medicine and was used to inform updated clinical practice recommendations from the U.S. Preventive Services Task Force (USPSTF).Clinical guidelines recommend a personalized approach to mammography screening that takes into account individual risk factors for breast cancer, as well as the potential benefits and harms of screening. Researchers used registry data for more than 400,000 women aged 40 to 89 to estimate rates of false-positive and false-negative digital mammography results — and subsequent imaging and biopsies — among a general population of women undergoing screening with digital mammography. They found that false-positives and recommendations for additional imaging were highest among younger women (those aged 40 to 49 years). These rates decreased with age. Rates of false-negative results were generally low. Risk factors for breast cancer, such as positive family history, previous biopsy, high breast density and low body mass index for younger women, were associated with higher risk for false-positive result.For more information: www.annals.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Mammography | August 14, 2019 Imago Systems Announces Collaboration With Mayo Clinic for Breast Imaging Image visualization company Imago Systems announced it has signed a know-how license with Mayo Clinic.

first_img Though the economy in Colorado is among the best of any state in the country, the housing market recovery in the state has been slow, according to a special commentary released by Wells Fargo’s Economics Group. The commentary indicates that there is cause to believe the outlook for the housing market in Colorado is bright, however.Colorado’s unemployment rate dropped to 5.3 percent in July, and the state’s real gross domestic product (GDP) grew at a rate of two points faster than the national average in 2013. The construction industry reported an increase of 5.9 percent rise in payrolls due to more homebuilding to accommodate the state’s rapidly growing population, Wells Fargo reported.Where housing recovery is concerned, however, Colorado’s struggles mirror those of the country as a whole, according to Wells Fargo.Year-to-date home sales are down 1.8 percent from last year in Colorado, while single family sales have declined 6.2 percent from a year ago. The decreased home sales in 2014 come following a surge in 2013, which saw single-family home sales jump up by 14.6 percent. A possible contributing factor to the weaker sales was a lack of inventory, with new home listings falling in 2014.Wells Fargo reported that the outlook for the housing market in Colorado looks promising despite the decline in single-family home sales. Multifamily home sales were up 17.4 percent after large gains last year. The number of residential construction permits for both single and multifamily units has increased along with the rise in the number of construction jobs, which makes Colorado an outlier from the national trend.Home prices have increased by 7.9 percent over last year and are above their pre-recession peak, which has contributed to keeping the negative equity rate in Colorado 5 percentage points below the national average. The growing demand for vacation homes in Colorado has been a contributing factor in the rising home costs.
