The Australia First Party (AFP), the Sydney based fringe right wing political organisation lead by Dr Jim Saleam, staged another demonstration outside the Greek Consulate in Sydney, in support of the jailed Golden Dawn MPs in Greece. Τhe protest did not manage to attract more than 20 people.It was the second time within the last three months that Australia First staged a demonstration outside the Greek Consulate in Sydney in order to oppose the “unconstitutional political imprisonment”, as they claim, of the six MPs of Golden Dawn. “There is no real evidence to sustain the charges of ‘criminal association’ against these men. There is just show trial propaganda,” claimed the leader of AFP Jim Saleam.The Australia First Party was founded in 1996 and is a minor fascist, protectionist, anti-multicultural, anti-global, anti-Zionist and white supremacist party that has only two local council representatives in any form of government in Australia. The demonstrators said that their mobilisation was similar to those organised by many other nationalist movements in various countries which have protested for the release of the Golden Dawn parliamentarians.

TNT : pas de décodeurs défaillants selon les fabricantsFrance – En début de semaine, l’association de défense des consommateurs UFC-Que Choisir révélait que des milliers de décodeurs TNT seraient défaillants lors du passage au tout-numérique (voir article). Une information qui est fermement démentie par les constructeurs.D’après l’UFC-Que choisir, ce sont 300.000 à 500.000 décodeurs TNT non conformes aux normes qui révéleront leur dysfonctionnement lors de l’abandon du signal analogique au profit du tout-numérique. Certains pourraient se montrer partiellement défaillants avec une mauvaise numérotation des chaînes, d’autres pourraient ne plus recevoir aucune chaîne.À lire aussiTNT : Six nouvelles chaînes gratuites ?Une information que réfute Nicolas Lamblain, responsable recherche et développement chez Metronic, qui détient 20% du marché des décodeurs. “Jen’ai jamais vu un décodeur, même chez les marques concurrentes qui, pour une quelconque raison, se met à ne plus recevoir certaines chaînes. Le pire qui puisse arriver, c’est que les chaînes ne soient plus accessibles au bon numéro” a-t-il assuré au site 01.net. Et le Syndicat des industries de matériels audiovisuels électroniques (Simavelec) d’affirmer à son tour : “Sur toutes les marques, qu’il s’agisse de modèles anciens ou récents, il n’y aura aucun problème. Cela fait longtemps que l’on a vérifié leur compatibilité”.Il faudra attendre plus d’un an et demi avant que ne puisse être dressé un inventaire des adaptateurs potentiellement affectés par une défaillance, l’extinction totale du signal analogique étant fixée au 11 novembre 2011.Le 25 février 2010 à 16:17 • Emmanuel Perrin read more
La poliomyélite enfin éradiquée en Inde, selon l’OMSPour la troisième année consécutive, l’Inde n’a déclaré aucun cas de polio. Le pays semble donc sortir de l’ornière en rentrant dans la catégorie des pays qui ont réussi à faire reculer le virus responsable de la maladie.La poliomyélite est une maladie infectieuse aigüe et contagieuse. Elle est causée par un virus, le poliovirus sauvage qui existe sous trois types : PV1, PV2 et PV3. Depuis le XIXe siècle, la maladie a sévi dans tout le monde causant de multiples épidémies responsables de la mort ou du handicap de millions de personnes. Dans les cas les plus graves, la polio peut causer une méningite accompagnée de lésions au niveau des neurones moteurs, résultant souvent en une paralysie des membres inférieurs. Toutefois, les symptômes et l’évolution varient d’un individu à l’autre, notamment en fonction du mode d’infection et du type du virus. Face aux dégâts causés par la polio, des médecins ont réussi à concevoir un vaccin qui a permis de considérablement réduire l’incidence de la maladie. Selon l’Organisation mondiale de la santé (OMS), elle a été éradiquée du continent américain, d’Europe et dans plusieurs régions du Pacifique occidental y compris la Chine. Un tournant monumental pour l’Inde L’organisation juge que la polio peut être estimée comme éradiquée lorsqu’aucun cas ne se déclare sur une période de trois ans. Cette année, un nouveau pays vient ainsi de rejoindre la liste de ceux qui se sont débarrassés de la maladie : l’Inde où le dernier cas enregistré date du 13 janvier 2011. Il concernait un bébé de 18 mois qui vivait dans un bidonville, à Calcutta, selon l’OMS. Il semblerait donc que la campagne de vaccination massive entreprise par New-Delhi ait fini par porter ses fruits. Selon Nicole Deutsch, chef des opérations de lutte contre la polio pour l’Unicef en Inde, cette avancée est “un tournant monumental”. Malgré la densité de sa population (1,21 milliard d’habitants en 2011) et ses problèmes sanitaires, “l’Inde a montré au monde sa capacité à vaincre la maladie”, a t-elle ajouté. Du moins dans la mesure où les éventuels cas de polio n’ont pas été placés dans la catégorie des méningites comme ça a été le cas en Europe. Mais l’Inde n’est pas seule à progresser dans ce domaine. En effet, c’est au niveau mondial que le virus de la polio recule. Une réduction globale À lire aussiMaladie de Charcot : symptômes, causes, traitement, où en est on ?Ainsi, de moins en moins de cas sont enregistrés au Nigeria et en Afghanistan, des pays où la polio est une véritable épidémie (de même qu’au Pakistan). “Si cette tendance se poursuit, nous pourrions facilement voir la polio disparaître en 2014 en Afghanistan et au Nigeria”, estime Hamid Jafari, un spécialiste de l’OMS cité par l’AFP.Au bout du compte, “l’année 2012 a été l’année où l’on a enregistré le plus faible nombre de cas dans les pays endémiques. Et pour 2013, il y en a jusqu’ici encore moins”, a-t-il souligné. Néanmoins, il ne faut pas crier victoire trop vite, d’autant que le virus est en recrudescence dans les pays d’Afrique de l’Est et notamment en Somalie. Il est également à craindre qu’il gagne peu à peu la Syrie.Le 14 janvier 2014 à 15:21 • Maxime Lambert read more
Taylor Farms Northwest in Kent is recalling about 280 pounds of ready-to-eat pork carnitas bowl products that contain tomatillos as they may be contaminated with salmonella and listeria monocytogenes, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Food Safety and Inspection Service.The pork bowls were produced between Oct. 10 and Oct. 14. The products subject to recall are the company’s 11-ounce, clear plastic-wrapped bowls of pork carnitas, with “sell by” dates of Oct. 15-19.The products bear establishment number “EST. 34834” inside the USDA mark of inspection, and were shipped to retail locations in Oregon and Washington.Taylor Farms Northwest learned of the problem Monday, when it received word the fire-roasted, diced tomatillos used in the production of the carnitas bowls were being recalled by their tomatillos supplier due to food-borne illness concerns.The USDA said Wednesday there have been no confirmed reports of illness due to consumption of these products, and asked anyone concerned about an injury or illness to contact a health care provider. read more
5th – 6th November 2018DAKAR Chairperson, Your Excellencies, Distinguished Ladies and Gentlemen.With warm greetings from The Gambia, I thank you for inviting me to participate in the 5th Dakar International Forum on Peace and Security.This event is quite timely and important, noting that Africa has come a long way over the years. Fortunately, the incidence of civil wars, large-scale conflicts and violent overthrows of democratic governments has decreased, which represents an important step towards sustaining stability within the region. After much struggle also, elections are now accepted as the sole credible means of transferring power.Unfortunately, however, deep rooted threats to peace and stability, such as terrorism, radical extremism, the spread of small arms and dangerous drugs, cross border crimes, maritime piracy and human trafficking have increased with serious consequences. Worsened by poverty and youth unemployment, such social ills make the youth vulnerable to terrorist and criminal groups.There are emerging threats to deal with as well. These include election-related violence, unregulated migration and abuse of new information technology, to name a few. This state of affairs has particularly made the West African sub-region highly vulnerable to terrorist violence.The institutional and structural limitations to handle these vices require urgent attention and durable solutions. To this end, priority needs to be put on providing adequate resources, training and operational capabilities for law enforcement agents to effectively address all security threats.Through peaceful coexistence, good governance and the creation of multiple avenues and opportunities for employment, we can similarly enhance peace and cohesion in our member countries. Besides these, our economic policies need to absorb the influx of the youth, open up new sources of income for them and harness their potential to contribute to peace and stability.At the national level, it is essential to refocus growth strategies on the labor-intensive sectors, and encourage the development of the informal sector through value-added production and international trade. Looking ahead, this is viewed as a window of hope for unskilled and low-skilled labor. Nonetheless, further research is needed into how public investment can be more labor-intensive, and the extent to which small businesses can be supported to flourish.In Africa, we have committed ourselves to silencing the guns on the continent by 2020. Certainly, it is only by working together that we can achieve this difficult challenge. Thus, deliberations should continue to focus broadly on sustained peace and security, nationally, regionally and globally.For us in The Gambia, the priorities of our National Development Plan (2018-2021) center on economic growth, transformation and development, with emphasis on peacebuilding and sustaining peace and security. In this regard, as civil society plays a crucial role in peacebuilding, institutional reforms and people-centered approaches will continue to inform our peacebuilding efforts.To revive our economy, we have successfully adopted efficient fiscal and macroeconomic policies and strategies. These are encouraging local businesses to borrow and invest without any fears.The budget support agreements concluded with our development partners have accorded my government renewed optimism for economic growth and development. To cite an example, we have launched a joint youth empowerment project with the European Union. This project targets skills development and job creation for the youth, in addition to providing opportunities for start-ups in business. All these signify our commitment to democracy, good governance and economic growth and development as major priorities.In our endeavor to administer justice and unify the nation, the Truth, Reconciliation and Reparation Commission established recently has commenced work. Also, the first phase of a major security sector reform program has been undertaken, and we are fully committed to scaling it up in the next phase.I am happy to state further that a Constitution Review Commission has begun national consultations, as part of the process to draft a new national Constitution. Alongside all these endeavors, residents of The Gambia now enjoy their legal freedoms, liberties and independence as they had never done for more than two decades!Chairperson, the Gambian experience underscores the importance of regional and international solidarity and cooperation, with sustained preventive diplomacy as important elements in peacebuilding and sustaining peace.I am convinced that the revival of our national economies and the implementation of appropriate reforms are vital elements for development and peace in Africa. Importantly too, national and regional strategies are necessary to uproot organized crime, especially the key threats to peace and security.I must admit that it is through partnerships and support that we have realized increased stability in our country. Therefore, while reiterating my appreciation to our partners, I call on them to steadfastly continue to render us their material and moral support. I reaffirm my confidence in our ability to achieve our collective goal of establishing and sustaining peace and security, but through more effective coordination arrangements.To conclude, I congratulate the organizers of this forum and my brother, President Macky Sall, on the success of the event. In particular, I commend President Sall for his commitment to the Wollof adages on neighbourliness and unity: “Deka ndorr jamma sigen. Teh bolo moi doleh!”In effect, if we all commit ourselves to peaceful co-existence and good neighbourliness, we shall enjoy the dividends of peace, security and stability throughout the world.I thank you for your attention. read more

2020 Kia Telluride review: Kia’s new SUV has big style and bigger value Comments Now playing: Watch this: Elon Musk unveils the Tesla Model Y Tesla Share your voice Tags 2020 Hyundai Palisade review: Posh enough to make Genesis jealous 2 34:37 If you’ve been sitting on the fence about ordering yourself a shiny new Tesla, the company hasn’t exactly been making it easy for you. Announcements about various price cuts followed shortly by subsequent hikes could make an uncommitted buyer feel even less ready to pull the trigger. Over the weekend, Elon Musk announced another round of price increases, while the new Model Y crossover SUV saw a bit of a bump itself. Just to get you up to speed, this most recent round of fluctuations started in January, when the company announced a series of price cuts on its vehicles. Later that month, with the company reshuffling its model designations, another cut was made. About a month later came the news that Tesla would shut down its retail operations, a move expected to lower prices even further. Tesla pulls the wraps off its Model Y crossover SUV More From Roadshow Tesla 2020 BMW M340i review: A dash of M makes everything better 9 Photos Electric Cars That all seemed like good news from a dollars-and-cents standpoint, but that plan only lasted a few weeks. Tesla announced that it would not be closing retail, but would instead hike prices on all its vehicles by approximately three percent. On Sunday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced an impending three percent increase on pricing of all Tesla cars in the company’s inventory. This isn’t an additional three percent on top of the other hike, however. It’s simply bringing the price of those cars already in inventory (already manufactured but unsold) up to match the online pricing of a new car. This change goes into effect on April 2. Add $1,000 to all of the above. Capture by Óscar Gutiérrez/CNET But that wasn’t the only change made over the weekend. As Electrek notes, pricing of the Model Y has also been increased by $1,000 across the board. The Long Range Model Y, for example, was to start at $47,000, and early orders placed on that car reflected that amount. Now, however, the base price of that car is $48,000. The top-shelf Model Y Performance has increased from $60,000 to $61,000. We’ve reached out to Tesla for clarification on these changes. In Tesla’s defense, traditional car companies frequently change the pricing of their cars as well. However, those changes are typically handled at the dealership level through incentives or other offers. This leaves the standard MSRP fixed. Tesla generally eschews incentive pricing, meaning any changes to the cost of its cars must be handled at a higher, and thus more public, level. That said, changing the pricing structure on a car that’s still 18 months away, just weeks after its unveiling, is unusual to say the least. read more
Amit Chopra.PR HandoutThe animation and Visual Effects (VFX) industry in India may be in nascent stage, but it is registering a steady growth, the industry is estimated to grow upswing in coming years. According to a prominent industry report, the animation services market in 2016 dominated by outsourced projects from television and film sectors, which accounted for around 85 per cent of the total animation services turnover in India.Giving a fillip to the growing industry, US-based Digital Domain, which has worked in movies like Titanic, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button and recent blockbusters Spider-Man: Homecoming and Beauty and the Beast, has now set up its first studio in India, with a plan of investing over $3 million in the first phase.Digital Domain’s India studio is the latest addition after Beijing and Hong Kong facility that opened earlier this year. The company has global presences in Los Angeles, New York, Portland, Vancouver, London, Shanghai, Beijing, Taipei and Hong Kong.Amit Chopra, the executive director and group chief operating officer, spoke to International Business Times, India about choosing India as his next destination, their future plans etc. Excerpts from the interview:Why did you choose India as your next destination? Is it because you have your a links with this country? That is definitely one of the reasons. If you look at the mass population today in India or China, the two big countries … we see a big push in the mobile industry. People are moving from small phones to smart phones. The younger generation are watching content on phone, laptops, etc. and watching lesser and lesser TV.We are looking at business today and for the next 10 years. Our aim is to be in the places where the income levels are growing and people have the access to the technology. Our goal is to be a consumer brand. And of course, the factor that I am an Indian will be a big reason.In India, about 1,000 movies are being made annually from multiple industries. In the next 10 years, what percent of the movies do you think will adopt VFX ?It is difficult to say. If you look at the US or China industry, the consumer behaviour is the same. It does not matter in which country they are living in and same thing is going to happen in India. The US was like that back in 70s and 80s or 90s. Now, if you look at the big budget movies, I think 8-9 out of 10 movies are having heavy visual effects. The story won’t be different in India. It is little bit behind, but the fact that the consumers see products coming in the market and I am sure they will react to it. When they see better quality imagery coming in the US, they will start expecting it here. It is just a matter of time and this industry continues to grow from strength to strength and we will see more and more films made using VFX. Baahubali is a great example. We see it as a growing market for the next 10 years. How big and what percentage of it are hard for me to say.In India, it is still about star-driven films. Do you think we will be in a situation where content-backed subjects will be given more importance than the stars. China and India are brand-driven societies. In Hollywood, the trend has undergone changes and a movie like Wonder Woman made without big names have won viewers’ appreciation. It is a matter of time here and you will see the change in next 5-10 years.Not many theatres in India have the facility to screen movies that are high on VFX. Looking at this aspect, do you think filmmakers will be interested to go heavy on VFX? When the mushrooming of multiplexes started a decade ago, everybody was like there was no way people would spend more than Rs 80 per ticket. Look at current situation, the multiplex chains are on the rise. Multiplexes are on the expansion in tier I cities and are making inroads into tier II cities. As a society, we are picky about spending money. But consumers will not mind paying more money for better viewing experience.I think, exhibitors will build better theatres if they want to tap the market. There is a huge population and the market is constantly growing. Even if they don’t upgrade their theatres, our aim is to reach people on their smart phones. People are using more and more smart phones compared to three years ago. Look at Apple, I saw an article recently where the sales of iPhone saw a good growth. It is one of the expensive phones in the country, but people are lining up to buy it. For me, it is music to my ears. Because I want to build those content and push through those places.Do you have plans to expand your branches to other parts of India?For sure. If there is growth and business happening here, we will definitely expand our operations. We will see how the business will grow and we will flow with that. We keep always looking for a centre that will serve as centre of excellence. I don’t know, but Bengaluru might be our future location. However, Hyderabad is turning out to be a big centre in south. We might have more technological developments happening here. Amit Chopra, group COO, CEO North America and Sudhir Reddy,head of digital studio, India at the launch.PR HandoutBaahubali may have done wonders at the worldwide box office, but people exposed to international films criticised it over its quality. Is it so difficult to reach that quality standards in India?I saw the film and I liked it. Can we compare it with Hollywood films? Look at the budget that Hollywood movies spend on VFX. There are $50-75 million being spent on VFX and if Baahubali 2 was made with so much of budget, I am sure the quality would have been as good as an international film.In 25 years of Digital Domain history, we have spent a lot of time building technologies and built a lot of assets. We are willing to bring the same technology and knowledge to India. We don’t have to start from the scratch here and we just have to begin from much higher level. If I have to do a project like Baahubali you will see a lot of improvement in the price point.Baahubali 2 and 2.0 are two big budget films made in India which have heavy VFX. Do you think the trend is here to stay? I believe the trend will continue to grow. Being here, we want to be part of those films and help them build better visual effects using the technologies that we have developed over the years.How do you rate Baahubali series out of 10? I enjoyed the movie a lot. I think there were lots of companies that they worked in the project. If I am not wrong, they also took the work outside India. I do believe that they can do better and Digital Domain can deliver a better product in that price point.The projects that you are working on now? I can tell you the studios that we are working with. We have projects with Disney, Warner Bros, Sony, Fox, etc. We are working on multiple projects at any given time. read more

Symptoms include weakness, muscle stiffness and difficulty thinking — a phenomenon often referred to as “brain fog.” MS affects an estimated 2.5 million people worldwide, according to the Multiple Sclerosis Foundation.Damage to the thalamus, a structure in the middle of the brain that acts as a kind of information hub, and its connections with other parts of the brain play an important role in the cognitive dysfunction many MS patients experience.Researchers led by Laura De Giglio, M.D., Ph.D., from the Department of Neurology and Psychiatry at Sapienza University in Rome, recently studied the effects of a video game-based cognitive rehabilitation program on the thalamus in patients with MS. They used a collection of video games from the Nintendo Corp., called Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training, which train the brain using puzzles, word memory and other mental challenges. The games are based on the work of Japanese neuroscientist Ryuta Kawashima, M.D. Twenty-four MS patients with cognitive impairment were randomly assigned to either take part in an eight-week, home-based rehabilitation program — consisting of 30-minute gaming sessions, five days per week — or be put on a wait list, serving as the control group. Patients were evaluated by cognitive tests and by 3-Tesla resting state functional magnetic resonance imaging (RS-fMRI) at baseline and after the eight-week period. Functional imaging when the brain is in its resting state, or not focused on a particular task, provides important information on neural connectivity.“Functional MRI allows you to study which brain areas are simultaneously active and gives information on the participation of certain areas with specific brain circuits,” De Giglio said. “When we talk about increased connectivity, we mean that these circuits have been modified, increasing the extension of areas that work simultaneously.”At follow-up, the 12 patients in the video-game group had significant increases in thalamic functional connectivity in brain areas corresponding to the posterior component of the default mode network, which is one of the most important brain networks involved in cognition. The results provide an example of the brain’s plasticity, or ability to form new connections throughout life.“This increased connectivity reflects the fact that video gaming experience changed the mode of operation of certain brain structures,” De Giglio said. “This means that even a widespread and common use tool like video games can promote brain plasticity and can aid in cognitive rehabilitation for people with neurological diseases, such as multiple sclerosis.”The modifications in functional connectivity shown in the video game group after training corresponded to significant improvements in test scores assessing sustained attention and executive function, the higher-level cognitive skills that help organize our lives and regulate our behavior.The results suggest that video-game-based brain training is an effective option to improve cognitive abilities of patients with MS.In the future, the researchers hope to study whether the plasticity induced by video games in MS patients is also related to improvements in other aspects of their daily lives. They also plan to look at how the video game can be integrated into a rehabilitation program together with other rehabilitative techniques.Collaborating with De Giglio were Francesca Tona, M.D., Francesca De Luca, Psy.D., Nikolaos Petsas, M.D., Ph.D., Luca Prosperini, M.D., Ph.D., Valentina Bianchi, Psy.D., Carlo Pozzilli, M.D., Ph.D., and Patrizia Pantano, M.D.For more information: www.pubs.rsna.org/journal/radiology FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Neuro Imaging | March 08, 2016 Video Games Improve Brain Connections in Multiple Sclerosis Patients Resting state functional MRI reveals increased plasticity leading to improved cognition after 12 weeks Image courtesy of UTHealth McGovern Medical School News | Neuro Imaging | August 16, 2019 ADHD Medication May Affect Brain Development in Children A drug used to treat attention-deficit/hyperactivity disorder (ADHD) appears to affect development of the brain’s… read more 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.

Jay Pharoah, left, and Host Olivia Munn speak at the 23rd annual Critics’ Choice Awards at the Barker Hangar on Thursday, Jan. 11, 2018, in Santa Monica, Calif. (Photo by Chris Pizzello/Invision/AP) by Sandy Cohen, The Associated Press Posted Jan 11, 2018 7:35 pm PDT Last Updated Jan 12, 2018 at 8:20 am PDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email Actresses, shows about women win big at Critics’ Choice SANTA MONICA, Calif. – It was a good night for women at the Critics’ Choice Awards, which honoured women-centred stories like “Big Little Lies,” ”The Handmaid’s Tale” and “The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel.” ”Wonder Woman” was named best action movie and star Gal Gadot accepted a special award for challenging gender stereotypes.Yet the industry’s ongoing sexual misconduct crisis remained an element of the ceremony as James Franco won an acting award early in the evening, hours after a report detailed new misconduct allegations against “The Disaster Artist” star and director. Franco did not attend Thursday’s presentation at the Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California, and his award was presented during a pre-telecast section broadcast only online.Franco won a similar award at the Golden Globes earlier in the week, where most women dressed in black to protest sexual harassment. More women dressed in colour on Thursday, but their determination to end gender discrimination remained just as fierce.“I want to share this award with all the women and men who stand for what’s right, standing for those who can’t stand or speak for themselves,” Gadot said as she accepted the second annual #SeeHer award. “My promise to you is: I will never be silenced. We will continue to band together to make strides, uniting for equality.”Guillermo del Toro’s fantasy romance, “The Shape of Water,” was the top film winner with four awards.
