Hockey World Cup 2018: Harendra Singh under scanner again

first_imgAfter the debacle at the Asian Games, where India lost to Malaysia in the semi-finals, Hockey India decided not to act harsh and gave coach Harendra Singh time till the World Cup.On Thursday, when the team lost 1-2 in the quarter-finals to Holland in Bhubaneswar, it reminded one of how much more needs to be done. Having missed direct qualification for the 2020 Tokyo Olympics, the pressure is on India to make the cut through qualifiers in 2019.Based on the performance in the FIH World Cup, there was nothing too exciting. A draw with Belgium and defeating South Africa and Canada may have looked nice but the big test was to get past the quarter-final stage.Agreed, in terms of fitness and speed the talented Indian side has made huge improvement. The problem areas pertain to lack of ideas when one plan fails and the second plan doesn’t seem to exist. That happened against Holland.And this is where the role of the coach comes under the scanner. Mail Today has learnt Harendra Singh’s coaching limitations have come to the fore. At least, this is how the national federation views it. What steps they take from here onwards will be interesting to watch.The grapevine says continuing solely with Harendra after this may be unlikely and the need for a foreign coach is pronounced. Then again, after the loss to Holland, Harendra’s outburst against the umpiring was unwarranted. These days, when umpires are under the scanner in a big way, “bad umpiring” is something that is very difficult to prove.advertisementThe Indian coach’s comments have ruffled the elite umpires and their manager in Bhubaneswar and how they deal with it will be known in the coming days.After the Asian Games, Hockey India was not inclined to changing the coaching staff as time was short. This time around, it’s very likely applications will be invited from abroad as well and the screening process will be speeded up.In Bhubaneshwar, Harendra was given full command. There was no interference and high-performance director David John stayed put in the Capital as he had “work to attend.”The days after the World Cup final will be interesting as Hockey India is concerned that in the qualification process for the Tokyo Olympics, there can be no glitch. “Personal egos will have to be left aside and the best coach has to be handed over the men’s team,” is now the feeling.Also See:last_img read more

Jamaica Designated Sub-Regional Hub For Relief Operations

first_imgStory Highlights The country has been designated the sub-regional hub for relief operations in the event of disasters. The designation of Jamaica as the sub-regional hub was made by head of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs. This move will allow for fast and effective delivery of assistance in disaster situations. As Jamaica prepares to position itself as the fourth node in the global logistics chain, the country has been designated the sub-regional hub for relief operations in the event of disasters.Making the announcement, Minister of Industry, Investment and Commerce, Hon. Anthony Hylton, said this move will allow for greater efficiency and management of regional and international humanitarian supplies and for fast and effective delivery of assistance in disaster situations.“This designation will mean a strengthening of the logistics link between Jamaica and Panama, which has been designated the Regional Logistics Centre for Humanitarian Assistance for the Americas in the provision of post disaster humanitarian relief,” he said.The Minister was speaking on Wednesday, November 13, at the TechConnect 2013 conference and exposition at the Shipping Association of Jamaica (SAJ) headquarters in Kingston.He noted that the designation of Jamaica as the sub-regional hub, was made by head of the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA), Baroness Amos, and is in keeping with efforts to enhance regional co-operation in disaster preparedness and humanitarian response.“Relief operations….that’s a major logistics exercise and it means therefore that…they see the build out of Jamaica’s existing facility, the promise of the logistics hub as a major part of, and a major reason for making Jamaica the sub-regional operations centre,” he said.The Minister contented that in the future, it is likely that Jamaica’s global logistics hub operation will be seen “as a sort of magnet for multinational corporations whose products and services are directly or indirectly involved in the logistics associated with disaster management and disaster relief”.“This is a major feather in Jamaica’s cap and strengthens our resolve in expediting the establishment of Jamaica’s global logistics hub. More importantly, it sends a clear signal that the global community understands the geo-strategic importance of Jamaica to global logistics,” he said.The Government’s Logistics Hub Initiative aims to take advantage of the anticipated increase in maritime activities from the expansion of the Panama Canal, scheduled for completion by 2016.Jamaica is deemed ideally positioned for this undertaking, based on the country’s location, midway between North and South America, and in close proximity to the canal.Forming part of the Government’s strategic priorities  for 2013/14, in the area of job creation and economic growth, the initiative will see Jamaica becoming the fourth node in the global logistics chain, along with facilities at Rotterdam, Netherlands; Singapore; and Dubai, United Arab Emirates.Key elements of the initiative include: development of the Caymanas Economic Zone; dredging of the Kingston Harbour; establishing a Dry Dock facility at Jackson Bay, Clarendon and a trans-shipment commodity port facility near Yallahs, St. Thomas; and developing an air cargo and passenger facility at Vernamfield in Clarendon.The conference and expo formed part of activities for the first annual TechConnect Week, organised by Advantum, from November 13 to 15.The week, themed: ‘Securing the Logistics Chain: People, Equipment, Technology’, will feature presentations and discussions about securing the key aspects of the logistics chain whilst highlighting the need to view security from a holistic perspective.Formerly Port Computer Services, Advantum is a subsidiary of the SAJ, which provides technological infrastructure and systems support to the Caribbean maritime sector.last_img read more

first_imgThe Canadian Press ABBOTSFORD, B.C. — A drunk driver who killed RCMP Const. Sarah Beckett in a crash has been granted limited day parole to attend alcohol abuse treatment.Kenneth Fenton was handed a five-year, six-month prison sentence in July 2017 and his first parole hearing was held today at a medium-security prison in Abbotsford, B.C.Fenton told a parole board panel that driving drunk was the “most devastating decision” he has ever made and he understands it’s unfair that he’s still here while an “innocent mother” can’t go home to her children.Parole Board of Canada member Catherine Dawson told Fenton that he still struggles with being honest and she’s concerned that it took him so long to realize that he’s an alcoholic.She and another board member decided to allow Fenton to go to a treatment centre in the Fraser Valley to complete a program lasting about 70 days, before he returns to prison and the board decides next his steps.Beckett, a 32-year-old mother of two boys, had recently returned from maternity leave when she was killed in the Victoria suburb of Langford in April 2016.Fenton’s trial heard that his truck was travelling at up to 90 kilometres an hour when it rammed Beckett’s  RCMP cruiser at an intersection.The court heard that he was speeding away from another police cruiser that had just turned on its lights to pull him over seconds before the crash.last_img read more

The Latest Croatia leader backs strict Brexit deadlines

BRUSSELS — The Latest on Brexit (all times local):10:45 a.m.Croatia’s prime minister says European Union leaders are protecting their citizens and businesses by setting strict deadlines for Britain’s departure from the bloc given the impasse in the U.K.Andrej Plenkovic said Friday that “we are saving the stability, credibility, and reliability of legal system of the union and its institutions and the decisions which are taken.”EU leaders have granted a Brexit delay until May 22 should Prime Minister Theresa May convince Parliament to accept her deal, or failing that until April 12 to take an entirely new approach.Plenkovic says Croatian citizens want to know whether they will have 12 candidates in the May 23-26 EU polls or only 11, if Britain remains a member country.He regrets the result of the Brexit referendum in Britain in 2016 and says EU leaders “are negotiating something we didn’t want.”___8:05 a.m.European Union leaders are gathering again Friday after deciding that the political crisis in Britain over Brexit poses too great a threat to the world’s biggest trading bloc.In a move that underlined their loss of confidence in British Prime Minister Theresa May, the leaders, set two deadlines for Britain to leave or to take an entirely new path in considering its EU future.At marathon late night talks, the leaders rejected May’s request to extend the Brexit deadline from March 29 — just one week away — until June 30.They agree to delay only until May 22, on the eve of EU elections, if she can persuade Britain’s Parliament to endorse the Brexit deal.

BC Court of Appeal upholds Site C environmental assessment report

B.C. Court of Appeal upholds Site C environmental assessment report by The Canadian Press Posted Sep 15, 2016 1:01 pm MDT Last Updated Sep 15, 2016 at 2:00 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email VANCOUVER – British Columbia’s highest court has ruled against the Peace Valley Landowner Association in its continuing fight against BC Hydro’s Site C hydroelectric project in northeastern B.C.The Association hoped to overturn a lower court order that rejected a judicial review of Site C’s environmental assessment certificate.In a unanimous ruling, the B.C. Court of Appeal says the ministries of environment and forestry can issue a certificate for the mega project without considering all 50 recommendations contained in an environmental assessment report.The Peace Valley Landowner Association argued Section 17 of the Environmental Assessment Act requires consideration of all recommendations of a hearing panel before a certificate is issued.But the high court says the ministers made no error because four of the recommendations in the Site C report dealt with future government regulation of BC Hydro and were not the sort of instruction covered by the act.Critics of the $8.8-billion dam along the Peace River say it will flood lands in traditional First Nations territory and create an 83-kilometre long reservoir that will wipe out farms and ranches. read more

Fujitsu smartphone camera tech can monitor your pulse

first_imgMedical technology is often seen as somehow separate from consumer electronics, usually due to the specific training required for use. A new camera technology designed to monitor your pulse, based on a video of your face, is headed for smartphones, geared specifically towards providing medically relevant information is an easy to use package.Smartphones have been doubling as personal wellness devices for a little while now. Your smartphone can be a food diary, and exercise monitor, even a suggestion engine for specific exercises. At the same time you can use your phone for entertainment, just add headphones and you have a massive library of movies or an endless music library wherever you are. Take the idea of personal wellness one step further, and think about what could be possible if you had the ability to quickly determine your pulse or the pulse of another with your phone.Smartphones with LED flash can use your fingertip to grab a pulse, but depending on your phone this winds up being either complicated to use or not accurate enough in an emergency situation. A tool like this is only as useful as the person trying to use it, after all. Fujitsu has recently demonstrated software that uses just a camera to measure your pulse just by watching your face for a few seconds.Fujitsu claims that their technology can accurately report your pulse after staring at your face for just five seconds. The demonstration, done in a well lit environment with a Logitech C920 1080p webcam, is a successful proof of concept. The software measures the subtle color changes in your skin as a result of the flow of blood through the blood vessels in your face. Within a year, Fujitsu plans to make this technology available on a variety of cameras, including smartphone cameras and medical equipment.On a smartphone, there’s a lot of potential for software like this. If you’re on a treadmill or exercise bike, you could leave this app running and use it to better measure your pulse. If you find yourself in a situation where someone is hurt, this app could offer additional information to emergency responders. This technology could also be used in the treatment of children and elderly, through a more constant form of monitoring. Fujitsu even suggests that this technology could be used in airports to monitor illness or aggressive behavior.It’s unclear how exactly Fujitsu will make this technology available, but the potential there is really interesting. The ability to monitor our pulse is often something many people are interested in, and providing that as part of a smartphone would be a great service to provide.[image credit: inquirer]last_img read more

You Can Make Your Own NES Classic With Raspberry Pi and RetroPie

first_imgStay on target Lyra Is a Handheld Gaming System Powered by a Raspberry PiRaspberry Pi Used to Steal 500 MB of NASA Data It’s no secret that the NES Classic Edition consoles are notoriously difficult to procure. When you do find them on sale for their usual $60 retail price, you can’t get them. Sites crash, they disappear from your shopping cart, and things go haywire. You could turn to eBay, but nothing the console can offer is worth paying sometimes quadruple the price. One Ars Technica author, Andrew Cunningham, took it upon himself to create a comparable (and arguably better) version of the machine.For Cunningham’s homemade NES Classic, he set out with a few rules. He wanted to spend about as much money as the retail unit would require, which is about $60, though it could come out to about $100 by including Amazon points. The item needed to be similar in size to the NES Classic, perform well enough to emulate 8- and 16-bit consoles, include Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for wireless controllers and networking, a relatively simple user interface and attractive UI.Pi fits in perfectly. via arstechnica.comHe ended up choosing a Raspberry Pi 3 Model B, Samsung’s 64GB EVO Select card, the official Raspberry Pi 3 case, and two Buffalo Classic USB Gamepads. The total for materials ended up around $92, which is a steal considering the prices the NES Classic Edition is currently going for.There’s a very lengthy and helpful write-up detailing Andrew’s process if you’re interested in following it yourself or creating something similar, or if you’re just curious about how it was made in general. It’s a fact that this is a fairly simple console to dupe if you’re looking to put in work. If you’re handy, you could even recreate the look of a regular Nintendo Entertainment System. Either way, this is an awesome challenge, especially if you’re handy with tech. It would certainly make a great holiday gift.last_img read more

The first case, CT Dose and Size-Specific Dose Estimate (SSDE), offers a total of 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits, 0.5 MPCEC credit by the Commission on Accreditation of Medical Physics Education Programs Inc. and 0.5 Category A credit hours of the American Registry of Radiologic Technologists.“We developed the first Image Wisely Radiation Safety Case to help imaging providers understand that the dose indices currently displayed on CT scanners CTDIvol (computed tomography dose index) and DLP (dose-length product) are not patient dose but are the dose to a standard phantom. To understand the dose to the patient better the Size Specific Dose Estimate (SSDE) has been developed,” said Donald Peck, Ph.D., and co-author of the first Image Wisely Radiation Safety Case.A total of six radiation safety cases will be presented throughout the year. Case content includes embedded questions that provide expert feedback as well as references and resources for further study. Continuing education credit for radiologists, imaging technologists and medical physicists is available. However, participants must successfully complete a brief post-instruction quiz and evaluation survey to receive credit.For more information: www.imagewisely.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Sponsored Content | Case Study | Radiation Dose Management | August 13, 2019 The Challenge of Pediatric Radiation Dose Management Radiation dose management is central to child patient safety.

Neiman Health Policy Institute announced that it is part of a team that has been awarded a five-year, $3.7 million National Institutes of Health (NIH) grant to establish a Core Center for Clinical Research to promote musculoskeletal clinical research. This new University of Washington-based effort will be called the Clinical Learning, Effectiveness and Research (CLEAR) Center and will be led by Jeffrey G. Jarvik, M.D., MPH, professor of radiology. The CLEAR Center will catalyze high-quality, multi-institutional collaborations by improving methods for conducting clinical musculoskeletal studies and by providing analysis-ready data for scientific investigators. Jarvik noted, “The UW’s CLEAR Center represents an important collaboration between multiple departments, schools and institutions, all sharing the common goal of promoting new approaches to collecting and analyzing data to address some of the most common and disabling clinical conditions.”As a research partner of the CLEAR Center, the Neiman Institute will make its extensive data holdings available to investigators, most notably, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) 5 percent research identifiable files, which contain all fee-for-service claims for a 5 percent national sample of Medicare beneficiaries.”The UW CLEAR Center provides a tremendous opportunity for musculoskeletal researchers to access data across multiple domains,” said Danny R. Hughes, Ph.D., Neiman Institute senior director for health policy research and co-investigator. “The breadth of collaborators in this effort facilitates research in clinical effectiveness, outcomes and policy that would be difficult to perform independently.”Common musculoskeletal disorders require coordinated effort from care teams linking rehabilitation medicine, radiology, pain medicine, physical therapy and surgical disciplines. This initiative will support diverse research collaborations with expertise in biostatistics, medical informatics, health services research and epidemiology with the goal of advancing evidence on effective diagnostic and treatment strategies for musculoskeletal conditions.For more information: www.neimanhpi.org FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享last_img read more

first_img(AP photos) Derrick Hall satisfied with D-backs’ buying and selling It’s been a minute since the Arizona Cardinals last went to the Super Bowl. By a minute, we mean a decade.The 2008 season feels just like yesterday, and the folks at The Ringer are celebrating a weird, wacky NFL season this week as the 2018 preseason begins 10 years later. On Friday, The Ringer published a 2008 NFL re-draft.Because 2008 was such an important year for the Cardinals, a lot stands out from the exercise. Bringing up David Johnson, a third-round pick in 2015, is a nice way to circle back to the Cardinals-angled theme brought up in The Ringer’s re-draft.And that’s the fact that the Cardinals have pulled off some pretty nice middle-round draft heists in the last decade. That’s because before going to the Super Bowl at the end of the 2008 season, Arizona used its second-round pick at 50th overall to select Miami defensive end Calais Campbell. Still going strong for the Jacksonville Jaguars a decade later after spending his first nine years with the Cardinals, Campbell went second overall to the St. Louis Rams in The Ringer’s re-draft.The big, 6-foot-8, 300-pound defensive lineman out of Miami (originally chosen by the Cardinals with the 50th overall pick) is as disruptive as they come: He’s collected 71.0 sacks, 45 pass deflections, 11 forced fumbles, and three picks in his 10-year career, winning All-Pro honors three times (two second team, one first team). He finished tied for second in the league in sacks last year (14.5) for the Jaguars at 31 years old.Taking Campbell off the board second after quarterback Matt Ryan, who went No. 1 to the Miami Dolphins, would have obviously changed the Cardinals’ fortunes.Related LinksThe 5: Things to watch in the Arizona Cardinals’ preseason openerCardinals refresh game day reminders for home opener vs. RedskinsIn the real 2008 draft, Arizona selected Tennessee State cornerback Dominque Rodgers-Cromartie 16th overall, tapping into the small school pipeline before taking Campbell with its second pick.Cromartie was by no means a bust, playing in 16 games in each of his three years with the Cardinals and picking up 10 interceptions in his first two seasons before he was traded to Philadelphia in a deal for quarterback Kevin Kolb. Former Cardinals kicker Phil Dawson retires 1 Comments   Share   Top Stories The 5: Takeaways from the Coyotes’ introduction of Alex Meruelo Grace expects Greinke trade to have emotional impact While his career is still going — Rodgers-Cromartie has been working out as a free agent for teams this week — The Ringer has better ideas for the Cardinals if they were to hop back in the time machine.How about taking East Carolina running back Chris Johnson with that No. 16 pick?CJ2K is known mostly for his 2,006-yard, 14-touchdown sophomore campaign, but he enjoyed a long and productive career well after that seminal season. In all, he racked up 9,651 yards on the ground, another 2,255 yards as a receiver, and 64 touchdowns. He could’ve been an excellent complement to Larry Fitzgerald and Anquan Boldin in the Kurt Warner–led offense.That might’ve added just a little more offensive punch in Super Bowl XLIII, which Arizona lost to the Steelers, 27-23, after producing just 33 total rushing yards in the game. Johnson was a 1,000-yard back in his first six years, all of which were spent with the Tennessee Titans after he went 24th overall in the 2008 draft.Of course, the Cardinals got a late taste of CJ2K from 2015-17, the final years of his career. He rushed for 814 yards in 11 games of 2015 before suffering a season-ending injury, opening the door for Arizona’s new star back, David Johnson.last_img read more
