Government ignored list of Inuk candidates in favour of its own for

first_imgAPTN National NewsThe federal government ignored a list of Inuk candidates to sit as commissioner for the national inquiry into missing and murdered Indigenous women and girls from at least two national Aboriginal organizations opting instead to appoint its own choice.That’s according to a source within Inuit Tapiriit Kanatami (ITK) who spoke on condition of anonymity.ITK is an advocacy group for Inuit in the Northwest Territories, Nunavut, Nunavik and Nunatsiavut.The source said that ITK submitted a list to Indigenous Affairs prior to the launch of phase two of the inquiry and expected the government to have at least one Inuk woman sit as commissioner.“The ITK provided an extensive list of qualified Inuit commissioners,” said the source. “We were ignored.”Nearly a week after the federal government launched phase two of the national inquiry, the president of Pauktuutit is also wondering why none of the five commissioners are Inuk.“We have lawyers,” said Rebecca Kudloo from Baker Lake, Nunavut. “I don’t know why they (government) didn’t consider an Inuk person for commissioner.”Commissioners Marion Buller, Michéle Audette and Brian Eloyfson are First Nations, and Marilyn Poitras is Métis.Qajaq Robinson, the fifth commissioner, is not Indigenous.Meet the Commissioners who will lead the National Inquiry into #MMIWG“It’s something the government should have considered in this,” said Kudloo.In it’s submission to the pre-inquiry consultations, having an Inuk commissioner was a common theme throughout the Pauktuutit presentation.Pauktuutit: Finding Voice: Report on the Pre-Inquiry ConsultationDuring the consultation, Pauktuutit told the consultations that the commissioners need to “equally represent Inuit, Métis and First Nations and that the nomination, by Inuit, of an Inuk/Inuit commissioners that are well known and respected by Inuit.Having representatives from all Indigenous groups in Canada came up at a number of pre-inquiry consultations the government conducted.Canada posted summaries of each of the sessions online.Pre-Inquiry Process: What we heard“In terms of leadership of the inquiry, participants voiced the need to ensure that First Nations, Inuit and Métis are each represented among commissioners,” the report states.Indigenous Affairs Minister Carolyn Bennett told APTN National News that they have the right people taking on the task.“We heard distinctly that we needed someone who heard and spoke Inuktitut, someone who understood the north, raised in the north, a true northerner,” said Bennett. And we heard from many people, very, very strong recommendations for Qajaq Robinson … and so we had many recommendations about this appointment and we feel it is a very good appointment.”The government would not expand on who the people were that put Robinson’s name forward. Nor would the department put anyone forward for an interview to expand on the reasons for the snub as of this post.Robinson is an Ottawa-based lawyer who graduated from the Akitsiraq Law Program – a partnership between the University of Victoria and Nunavut Arctic College. Born in Iqaluit and raised in Igloolik, the government says she is “a strong Northern advocate, who is fluent in Inuktitut and English.”But is not Inuk.“We are not considered qualified to be in the forefront of the inquiry? ” asked Kudloo. “Once again we have been left out.”Left out again refers to years of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission. The TRC went through two sets of commissioners but an Inuk was never one of them.“How can a non-Inuk person know what we’ve gone through? How it feels,” asked Kudloo. “If I spoke Chinese, it doesn’t mean that I know what if feels like to be Chinese.”Like Pauktuutit, the ITK also told the government about the importance of having an Inuk on the inquiry.“At least one commissioner should be an Inuk woman,” wrote the ITK. “Participants indicated that there are many qualified and capable Inuit that could be involved with the Inquiry at all levels from commissioners to support workers. Ideally, Inuit lawyers and judges would be involved in leading the inquiry, and Inuit supports be used in providing services to participants.”The National Inuit submission on the pre-consultation phase of the national inquiryThe ITK is not speaking about the issue now. President Natan Obed declined an interview request, and the organization would not provide a comment on the issue.But the source said the ITK board was not consulted by the government on who the commissioners would be nor did the organization put Robinson’s name forward as a recommendation.The summary of the pre-inquiry consultations handed to Indigenous Affairs also noted the importance of having  commissioners that represent all regions.“We heard that the inquiry should be independent, transparent and led by Indigenous women,” the summary said. “The leadership should represent Indigenous communities and regions.”Kudloo told APTN that the organization put one candidates name forward to be commissioner. She said because of privacy reasons, she couldn’t divulge the person’s name.news@aptn.calast_img read more

ABCs World News breaks a 21year streak

first_imgNEW YORK, N.Y. – ABC’s “World News Tonight” with David Muir has dethroned NBC and finished the television season as the year’s most-watched evening newscast for the first time in 21 years, since the late Peter Jennings was anchor.While network evening newscasts have diminished in influence over the years and morning shows make more money, they still collectively reach 23 million viewers each weeknight and are considered the flagship broadcasts of news divisions. Bragging rights are eagerly sought.“One has to recognize the breaking of one of the great streaks in television,” said James Goldston, ABC News president. Muir and his team “worked immensely hard to do that, and they’ve done it in an extraordinary period of news.”For the year, “World News Tonight” averaged 8.25 million viewers, while NBC’s “Nightly News” had 8.17 million and the “CBS Evening News” had 6.56 million, according to the Nielsen company. For statistical purposes, television marks its year by the start of a new season of broadcast programs in September.Like much in television, the programs aren’t a growth industry. ABC moved in front by essentially staying even from the previous two years while its rivals lost viewers.NBC touted its victory among the 25-to-54-year-old demographic, the statistic primarily used as a basis for advertising sales in news. NBC News ran a full-page newspaper advertisement boasting that it was No. 1 for the second season in a row with “Nightly News,” the “Today” show, “Dateline NBC” and “Meet the Press.” The small print noted they were wins among specific demographic categories, not among all viewers.For the evening newscasts, NBC News President Noah Oppenheim said he wouldn’t trade places with his ABC counterparts.“If you are going to go by the quality of the broadcast, ours is superior,” he said. “If you’re going to go by business measurements, we’re winning in the only category that matters.”Goldston said he wasn’t going to dismiss the large number of viewers not included in that category. “We want to be America’s favourite news show,” he said.“In a world consumed by social media and fake news, people are thirsting to get a straightforward account of what happened that day,” he said. “I think ‘World News Tonight’ does that better than anybody.”What’s most important is building on the victory, he said. ABC’s “Good Morning America” ended a long victory streak by “Today” earlier in this decade, and hasn’t relinquished that lead since.There’s some question about whether NBC’s Lester Holt, who has travelled to Puerto Rico to anchor “Nightly News” from the hurricane-ravaged territory this week, may be hurt by association with one of NBC News’ biggest success. MSNBC and its left-leaning prime-time lineup has been a huge hit in the Age of Trump. Do some of the president’s supporters who don’t like MSNBC take it out on people at NBC News?“It’s absolutely possible,” said Tim Graham, director of media analysis at the conservative watchdog Media Research Center. Oppenheim said the audience is sophisticated enough to know the difference between the products, just like The New York Times has separate opinion pages and news pages.CBS, whose evening newscast is in transition with Anthony Mason as interim anchor, instead looked to the morning to tout accomplishments. “CBS This Morning,” while still in third place, is more competitive with ABC and NBC at that time of day than the network ever has been.Its rivals, meanwhile, bleed viewers. “Good Morning America” averages 4.4 million viewers, but is down from 5.5 million four years ago. “Today” has dropped from 4.9 million to 4.2 million in the same time frame. Meanwhile, CBS has gained audience in that time from, going from 3 million viewers in 2013-14 to just under 3.6 million now.last_img read more

Zafzafi to Be Questioned Over Alleged Prison Letter Lawyer

Rabat – Nasser Zafzafi, the detained leading activist of the Hirak protest movement in Rif region, has been transferred to the headquarters of the National Brigade of Judiciary Police (BNPJ), lawyer Khadija Rougani, a member of the activist’s defense team, has announced.The lawyer said that Zafzafi’s transfer to the BNPJ’s headquarters is probably related to a letter attributed to Zafzafi that was published by media on Thursday.“To this point, it is not clear why he is under interrogation. The reason could mostly be the letter that circulated,” Rougani said in a statement to Lakome2. Zafzafi has been under detentions in Oukacha Prision in Casablanca. He and dozens of other activists held in Casablanca and Al Hoceima are accused of several heavy crimes including “undermining the security” of the country.On Thursday, online media outlets published a letter attributed to Zafzafi urging the population of Al Hoceima to preserve in their endeavors until their “legitimate demands” are answered.He also warned his follow protesters against violence, calling such actions a betrayal of the movement’s peaceful principles.“He who throws a stone has betrayed Hirak and the detainees, and he who breaks a glass is not [a member] of Hirak,” reads the letter.The General Directorate of the Prison and Reintegration Administration (DGAPR) released a statement later on denying the letter was written by Zafzafi, even though Mohammed Ziane, another member of his defense team, said the letter was indeed written by his client. read more

PEI joins push for national securities regulator fifth province to sign on

OTTAWA – Prince Edward Island has joined Ottawa’s move to create a national securities regulator, bringing the total to five provinces who have signed onto the plan.The federal Finance Department said Thursday the province has signed a memorandum of agreement to join the Co-operative Capital Markets Regulatory System.The addition of P.E.I. follows a decision in July by Saskatchewan and New Brunswick to join B.C., Ontario and the federal government in establishing a national regulator.Canada is the only G20 country without a national securities regulator.The Finance Department said the participating jurisdictions will continue to work together to encourage the remaining provinces and territories to join the system.Alberta and Quebec have remained staunchly opposed to a national regulator.Under the current system, all 13 jurisdictions in Canada regulate their own capital markets and bond and securities issuances, although all except Ontario also belong to the so-called passport system by which the approval of one commission essentially allows for registration in another province.In September, the partners released consultation drafts of uniform provincial capital markets legislation and the complementary federal legislation for public comment.A national regulator will administer a single set of regulations under the proposed rules and would be funded through a single set of fees.Ottawa has long championed the idea of a national securities regulator, but the Supreme Court sided with the provinces in 2011 on who had jurisdiction. However, in its ruling the top court left the door open to federal-provincial co-operation.Ontario and British Columbia started the ball rolling last year when they began work with Ottawa to develop complementary provincial and federal legislation governing capital markets. read more

Street View imagery by Google now available for Sri Lanka

Google announced that Street View imagery of Sri Lanka is now available on Google Maps. This implies that people in Sri Lanka and around the world can now view Sri Lanka in 360-degree panoramic imagery from their phone, tablet or computer, First Post reported.Google says, “Today’s launch brings the total number of countries where Street View is available to 76. Street View is a popular feature in Google Maps, that allows people to virtually explore and navigate places. People can access street-level imagery by zooming into the location on Google Maps, or by dragging the orange “Pegman” icon from the bottom right-hand corner of the map onto a blue highlighted street.” “We are delighted to bring imagery of Sri Lanka to Street View on Google Maps” said Helena Lersch, Public Policy Manager Google. “Sri Lanka is already a popular tourist destination, and we hope Street View will make the country even more accessible to people interested in exploring and visiting here. Whether you continue your journey in Google Maps or are inspired to visit in person, we invite you to enjoy the Land of Lions” she continued. Google began driving in Sri Lanka in December 2014 and finished collecting imagery in February this year. To capture the imagery, Google drove close to 50,000 kilometers across every state and province so that one can virtually explore this landscape from coast to coast. The company stated that in 2015, 1.8 million tourists visited Sri Lanka. By bringing Street View to Sri Lanka, Google hopes to create a new way of showcasing Sri Lanka’s beauty to the world while helping strengthen the country’s already burgeoning tourism trade. read more

Canadian and US stocks take slide loonie strengthens against greenback

by David Hodges, The Canadian Press Posted Jul 6, 2017 9:31 am MDT Last Updated Jul 6, 2017 at 3:20 pm MDT AddThis Sharing ButtonsShare to TwitterTwitterShare to FacebookFacebookShare to RedditRedditShare to 電子郵件Email TORONTO – Canadian and U.S. stocks racked up broad-based losses Thursday amid mounting evidence that U.S. hiring has slowed down.The Toronto Stock Exchange’s S&P/TSX composite index was down 75.12 points to 15,078.00 in a decline that saw nearly all sectors finish in the red.In New York, the Dow Jones industrial average dropped 158.13 points to 21,320.04, the S&P 500 index shed 22.79 points to 2,409.75 and the Nasdaq composite index fell 61.40 points to 6,089.46.The losses came as payroll processor ADP reported that private U.S. businesses added 158,000 jobs last month, which was fewer than analysts expected.“What we’re seeing is this general erosion in sentiment,” said Andrew Pyle, a senior wealth adviser at Scotia Wealth Management. “Some of that has to do with the weaker-than-expected payroll numbers we saw in the States this morning.”Going into the summer, Pyle added, the fundamentals that have been behind the impressive movements of U.S. stock markets are now starting to fade.“Without proof that we’re going to see an acceleration in U.S. growth and global growth, investors are having a hard time justifying current levels of the market. And that’s why we’re seeing this general pullback.”In currencies, the Canadian dollar was trading at an average price of 77.24 cents US, up 0.21 of a U.S. cent.Pyle pegged the loonie’s recent rally to a switch in market sentiment with respect to the Bank of Canada, which next Wednesday will make its next interest rate announcement. There have been growing expectations of a rate hike, which would be the first such increase in nearly seven years.“That’s what’s really underneath the strength of the Canadian dollar now,” he said. “I think at this point it’s probably getting close to its top.”Gold, which tends to do well when the U.S. dollar is under pressure, was also up. The August gold contract advanced $1.60 to US$1,223.30 an ounce.On the corporate front, Air Canada shares were at their highest in more than 10 years on Thursday after the country’s largest airline said analyst forecasts had significantly underestimated one of its earnings benchmarks.Shares in the Montreal-based airline advanced $1.86, or 10.73 per cent, to close at $19.20. The stock surged after Air Canada said its EBITDAR (earnings before interest, taxes, depreciation, amortization, impairment and aircraft rent) will be better than the $475 million average forecast by analysts for the three months ended June 30.Elsewhere in currencies, the August crude contract was up 39 cents to US$45.52 per barrel while the August natural gas contract added five cents to US$2.89 per mmBTU. The September copper contract was ahead two cents at US$2.66 a pound.Follow @DaveHTO on Twitter. Canadian and U.S. stocks take slide, loonie strengthens against greenback read more

Rhein Neckar Lowen with B team in Kielce We dont want to

Rhein Neckar Lowen Rhein Neckar Lowen will play the first match of the VELUX EHF Champions League TOP 16 phase in Kielce with “B team”. That is the conclusion of complete mess between European Handball Federation and DKB Bundesliga in terms of schedule after became clear that Bundesliga’s derby between RNL and THW Kiel will take place in the same time as TOP 16 matches of two German teams.The German champions wrote in statement that they don’t want to be a ball between EHF and DKB Bundesliga anymore. The “Lions” declined option to change host right with PGE Vive Kielce (to play first match at home).+ On March 24 we play in the league at THW Kiel. This game will be broadcast live on Free TV on ARD.+ The periods for the Champions League knockout matches are 21.3. until 25.3. (First leg) and 28.3. to 1.4. (Leg)+ In the group phase of the Champions League we have – likeTHW Kiel – fought the home right over 14 games away, ie. the right to play the decisive return leg in the second round at home in the SAP Arena.+ The foreign clubs want to play their home matches during a weekend (24./25.3.). Since we play against THW Kiel (compete in TOP 16 against Szeged) on March 24, that is the first problem that could not be solved in numerous discussions.+ For the DKB Handball Bundesliga, the THW Kiel and us a re-schedule of the league game is hard to imagine: As one of the few games in free TV, it is an important opportunity for us, our fans and our partners, advertising our sport in front of a wide audience.+ Finally, after consulting with our team, we even offered to play both games on a weekend (24./25.3) – Saturday in Kiel, Sunday in Kielce. A burden that is actually unreasonable, which we would have supported including our team, but to find a solution. The EHF rejected this possibility and insisted that the Champions League match on March 24. For which reason, it is inexplicable to us.+ The EHF has finally set an ultimatum: Either we relocate our league match and play the first knockout round first leg on 24.3. or we have to give up our home right.+ We informed the EHF this morning that we will not agree to change home right.We will not give up what we have fought hard for and earned in 14 group matches together with our fans: namely the right to a return leg at home. We don’t want to let to take from us earned reward and an attractive appointment – especially if there were other solutions.We have tried to compromise and make concessions in numerous discussions – even if they have been painful. Now a limit has been reached and we will not continue to be a plaything in the power struggle between the EHF and the HBL. We see it as the task of both associations to create the best opportunities for our sport and thus to promote handball together. We do not expect any preference over other clubs or special rules – but we expect fairness, transparency and objectivity, and above all action in the interest of our sport and our players – free of power.Now the EHF has told us the dates of the game:On Saturday, March 24, we start at 18:10 clock in the DKB Handball Bundesliga in Kiel – and parallel on 24.3. at 16.00 in Kielce.On the 1st of April at 19.00, we will play the second knockout round match against Kielce in the SAP Arena.We will travel with our second team to Poland. For the guys who love and live handball this will be an incredible experience – but of course we are also very aware that there will be no more athletic fair comparison at TOP 16. We regret that very much – but unfortunately have no other alternative.We will all go full throttle together in the second match at SAP Arena – then it’s all about our sport and the competition between two teams with the same means as it should be. ← Previous Story “War for March 24” between EHF and DKB Bundesliga Next Story → FRANCE: PSG Handball survive Saint Raphael to stay in race – Hansen scores the last one! read more

Dried bat horses tail and 37 crocodile teeth the strange items people

first_img Image: Shutterstock/Dino Geromella 9,389 Views Share5 Tweet Email3 Sep 9th 2019, 7:07 AM Monday 9 Sep 2019, 7:07 AM By Darragh McDonagh A HORSE’S TAIL, a dried bat, a moose horn and 37 crocodile teeth were among the strange items that people tried to smuggle into the state by post during the past two years.The contraband originated in countries including Cameroon, Indonesia, India and Japan; and was seized by customs’ anti-smuggling teams based at An Post’s mail centre in Portlaoise.All animal-related imports must undergo a veterinary inspection before entering the jurisdiction, while the movement of certain species is completely banned under the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES).A package containing 89 dried insects was intercepted by the Customs Division of Revenue in Portlaoise in May 2018. The parcel had been posted from Cameroon, where insects are a popular delicacy.In July 2018, anti-smuggling personnel seized a package that contained two exotic beetles, which were alive when they reached the mail centre, having survived the long journey from Japan.A total of 37 crocodile or alligator teeth from the United States were discovered in a parcel during the same month, while a dozen eggs from the US were also seized the next day.A horse’s tail and a calf rawhide from Australia were seized separately at Portlaoise Mail Centre on the same date in June 2017. A moose horn from Canada was intercepted two months later.Other animal-related seizures during 2017 and 2018 included a dried bat from Indonesia, and seven “bird cape feathers” from India.In 2016, a consignment of eight alligator heads, an active bird nest, and a package containing up to 4,000 live bees were seized at the mail centre. At Dublin Airport during the same year, a hippo’s tusk, a crocodile head and a number of conch shells were among the animal-related items seized.A spokesperson for Revenue said that its Customs Division has anti-smuggling teams stationed at all main ports and airports, as well as at the country’s main postal depots.“Packages received in postal depots are subject to risk profiling, post clearance auditing and other post clearance controls,” the spokesperson said. “Revenue officers routinely profile such importations and carry out x-ray examinations and physical examinations based on risk assessment, and with a focus on detention and seizure of smuggled and prohibited goods, to include certain wildlife or animal imports,” he said.The spokesperson said that details about the criteria used to profile packages could not be revealed for operational reasons.“Revenue has primary responsibility for the detection, interception and seizure of prohibited goods intended to be illegally imported or smuggled into the state, and ensures that legislation in respect of prohibitions and restrictions is complied with,” he added. https://jrnl.ie/4801055 Image: Shutterstock/Dino Geromella Dried bat, horse’s tail and 37 crocodile teeth – the strange items people try to smuggle into Ireland The contraband originated in countries including Cameroon, Indonesia, India and Japan. 10 Comments Short URL Tweet thisShare on FacebookEmail this articlelast_img read more

Financial Times Sees 100000 Users In Week After HTML Launch

first_imgFinancial Times has decided to go another way for their digital subscription offering, creating an app through HTML 5, allowing users to get the app experience through their Web browser.Launched last week, the FT app is currently only optimized for iOS products; the Android market is next for apps.FT.com. In its first week, the app has had 100,000 users. MB Christie, head of product development for the FT, notes that that development for different platforms (Android, etc.) will be quick, as testing the product in different browsing environments is the only step before FT can hit all platforms. There are various reasons why FT decided to go the HTML app route, as the publication already has a strong digital presence. 15 percent of last year’s digital subscription downloads were through a mobile device, and FT wants to offer content that resizes to smartphone screens, and mini and maxi tablets. Christie references that 50 percent of computers purchased in 2011 are predicted to not be PCs (per Deloitte). The digital and print pricing is already in place for the Financial Times with their metered model, and the billing system for the HTML product is the same as the structure for the digital and print subs.FT began to develop the HTML app in 2010, with the big push for completion in 2011. As Christie says, this decision to go through HTML for the FT app was made before Apple introduced its subscription model to publishers.In regards to Apple’s subscription model, Christie says, “By not knowing who are our customers are, we can’t give access to all devices, if you signed up. [Not giving the 30 percent cut of purchases] is a side benefit of not having to go through the Apple cycle. However, it would have been a different conversation if the data was available.”As Christie points out, only 50 percent of consumers who buy through the App Store opt to share their data with the publishers they are purchasing products from. “The metered model doesn’t work when you don’t get the info. Apple also doesn’t support corporate accounts.”However, FT remains in talks with Apple and will continue to consider their terms, according to a FT spokesperson. As far as advertising, staff have been selling packages to advertisers under “tablet advertising”, not “iPad advertising”. Christie reinforces that advertiser interest has grown since the launch of apps.FT.com last week.Due to Apple’s new subscription rules that will be put in effect on June 30, the Apple FT app that requires subscription may be removed from the App Store. Other FT products, such as Little Books of Business Travel, will remain available from Apple.In deciding to launch an HTML app in addition to FT’s digital presence, Christie says, “Besides being able to access it offline, apps have a beginning, middle and end. As opposed to searching the Web, you feel like you’ve actually read today’s paper.”Other publishers, such as Playboy, have also decided to take the HTML route. iPlayboy.com was launched in May, though the publication may have had different reasons to go through the Web instead of an app; Apple is known for its strict handle on acceptable content that can be purchased through iTunes.center_img Through the HTML app, FT will feature video and other enhanced features. The content through the HTML 5 app can also be read offline, as data can be stored offline via HTML 5. Through Web browser access, there are automatic updates to the app, as the product refreshes itself without user download, as apps through the App Store require.last_img read more

355Ship Fleet Not a Priority for Administration Analyst Says

first_imgThe Navy has consistently downplayed the importance of the 355-ship fleet-size target it released in December 2016 since Jim Mattis became defense secretary, reports Defense News. The pattern continued Monday when a top Navy official told the audience at the Sea-Air-Space expo to focus less on the 355-ship figure and more on achieving the “right capabilities.” Noted Bryan McGrath, a consultant with the FerryBridge Group: “When people downplay numbers, it is almost always a way to reconcile tight resources. The bottom line is that if 355 were a Secretary Mattis priority, we’d know it. It isn’t, and so it is likely we will continue to see Navy downplay the number.”Lawmakers have tried to steer the Navy back toward the 355-ship requirement. “The Navy sometimes misses the strategic imperative and national urgency associated with the message our nation needs to send to the world when an inadequate shipbuilding budget is proposed,” Rep. Rob Wittman (R-Va.), chairman of the House Armed Services’ Seapower subcommittee, said at a hearing last month.

Earlier on 29 November, the court granted bail to Shafat Ahmed.The court also fixed 6 March for the next date to testify the victim as the today’s recording of testimony was not concluded today.On 6 May last year, a university student filed the case with Banani police station against five persons including Shafat and Shadman Sakif.According to the case statement, Safat and Shadman raped the plaintiff and another woman on 28 March at The Raintree Dhaka in the capital’s Banani area while three others assisted them.The three other accused are Nayeem Ashraf, Shafat’s driver Billal Hossain and bodyguard Rahmat Ali.last_img read more

Entangled LED first to operate in the telecom window

Müller et al. “A quantum light-emitting diode for the standard telecom window around 1,550 nm.” Nature Communications. DOI: 10.1038/s41467-018-03251-7 The researchers, Tina Müller et al., at Toshiba Research Europe Limited, the University of Sheffield, and the University of Cambridge, have published a paper on the new quantum light source in a recent issue of Nature Communications.”For the first time, quantum devices can meet the fundamental requirements of state-of-the art quantum key distribution and quantum communication systems,” Müller told Phys.org.The ability to emit single photons and entangled photon pairs in the telecom window has been a goal in the field of quantum optics for a long time. Although a variety of different light sources exist that can emit single and entangled photons (from individual atoms to color centers in diamond), until now they have been largely limited to shorter wavelengths that are unsuitable for quantum network applications.In the new study, the researchers fabricated light-emitting quantum dot devices based on indium phosphide, a material that is currently used in quantum dot lasers to generate laser light with a 1550-nm wavelength. To enable this material to emit single photons and entangled photon pairs at this wavelength, the researchers used a growth method called metalorganic vapor phase epitaxy to grow individual indium phosphide quantum dot “droplets,” which form the basis for the quantum LEDs. Another advantage of the new quantum LEDs is that they can operate at temperatures of up to 93 K, which is significantly higher than the operating temperatures of other quantum light sources. A higher operating temperature allows for easier integration with existing devices, and the researchers expect that the operating temperature of the new devices could be improved even further with some modifications.Going forward, the researchers anticipate that the new quantum LEDs will have a significant impact on the development of quantum network technology, including the quantum internet. For example, the devices can be integrated with quantum relays and repeaters to extend the range of quantum networks. The researchers also expect that the quantum light sources can operate in pulsed mode when integrated with radio frequency electronics. Their next steps will be to make improvements in order to realize these applications.”We will further optimize the performance and size of our devices to facilitate integration in long-distance quantum communications systems,” Müller said.

Subscribe » Not every entrepreneur has the luxury of tapping into a DSL, cable or T1 line. There are still places far enough away from the main grid to make getting broadband internet access a real issue. But growing businesses in rural regions aren’t doomed to dial-up–they can look to satellite as a broadband option.Here’s an example: WildBlue’s satellite broadband service starts at about $50 per month, with initial equipment costs at about $300 and basic installation at $180. WildBlue offers download speeds of up to 1.5Mbps and works through a modem and minidish setup. It’s available just about anywhere in the U.S.–check the company’s website to find a dealer and special offers in your area.WildBlue isn’t the only provider on the block, but it’s one of the most affordable. Skycastershas service plans that start at about $100 per month. StarBandhas a variety of plans that cover residential and office needs. HughesNethas a small-office plan that runs $100 per month, with $1,000 in upfront equipment and installation costs. Despite the cost, broadband satellite can help boost a rural business that has been treading water with dial-up.

MacBook Air 2018 What Critics Love and Hate

first_imgFor years, the MacBook Air’s thin and lightweight design has been a favorite for people across the globe. And aside from a few small updates over the years, it was in desperate need of an overhaul.But is the new MacBook Air, which launches on Nov. 7, enough of an upgrade? MacBook Air vs MacBook Pro: Which 13-inch MacBook Is Right For You?Apple’s entry-level MacBook Air and Pro look pretty similar, but our testing proved they differ in crucial ways.Your Recommended PlaylistVolume 0%Press shift question mark to access a list of keyboard shortcutsKeyboard Shortcutsplay/pauseincrease volumedecrease volumeseek forwardsseek backwardstoggle captionstoggle fullscreenmute/unmuteseek to %SPACE↑↓→←cfm0-9接下来播放Which Cheap Tablet Is Best?

Casey took the MacBook Air for a spin recently. And in his review for Laptop Mag, Henry was impressed with the MacBook Air’s Retina display and nice design, but wanted far more power and a better starting price for the value.The new MacBook Air is a welcome upgrade with a sharper display in a thinner and lighter design, but this laptop could use more power.Pros“The 2560 x 1600-pixel Retina display is the true star of the new MacBook Air, offering crisp detail and solid colors. As I watched the first episode of The Chilling Adventures of Sabrina, I noted rich reds in her jacket, lush green foliage in a creepy forest and vibrant pink neon at a movie theater.”“In the top right corner of the keyboard, you’ll see a Touch ID fingerprint reader, which I found works great for unlocking the MacBook Air and signing into 1Password, my preferred password manager. Thankfully, Apple’s giving users the power of this biometric sensor without burdening them with the Touch Bar that accompanies Touch ID on the company’s MacBook Pros.”Cons“My why-oh-Intel-Y-series concerns reared their head when the MacBook Air notched a 7,871 on the Geekbench 4.3 general performance benchmark, achieving about two-thirds of the 12,230 category average.”“The MacBook Air sports two speedy Thunderbolt 3 ports (which enable much faster data-transfer speeds) on its left side, with a headphone jack on its right. That might be an upgrade from the MacBook’s singular, slower USB Type-C port, but it’s lacking in comparison to most competitors.”MORE: Apple MacBook Air (2018) – Full ReviewScore: 3.5/5The VergeOver at The Verge, reviewer Dieter Bohn was impressed with the MacBook Air’s ability to meet the demands you place upon it without hesitation. But he cautioned that other devices, like the iPad Pro or even a Chromebook, might be a better buy, depending on what you’re looking for in a new computer.It’s a computer that will let you do whatever you want, even though some of those things are probably beyond its capabilities.Pros“This laptop feels a lot nicer than the old MacBook Air. It fits the same size screen in a smaller body, but it’s not as thin or as light as the thinnest and lightest of laptops you can get today.”“Those bezels are not as tiny as what you can get on some Windows laptops, but it’s still a massive improvement over the old Air.”“You’ll find it’s a little weird to type on for the first day, but you’ll get used to it. Some people still really don’t like it, but I’m not one of them: I really like this keyboard, even if it is a little clacky.”Cons“Apple’s macOS isn’t designed to work with touch at all, so it’s not here. Most other computers these days — whatever their form factor — do support touch.”“This new MacBook Air is faster than the old MacBook Air, but not by the kind of margin you’d expect after three years (or even one, if you happened to buy the 2017 model).”Score: 7.5/10WiredWired’s Lauren Goode was clearly impressed with the MacBook Air’s improved keyboard, better speakers, and the overall refresh that keeps the MacBook Air a nice option for mobile computing. But Goode also wondered if the device is worth buying when not much has really dramatically changed in the MacBook Air sales pitch.It’s ready for reinvention. Well, sort of. It’s more accurate to say that it has caught up with the times.Pros“So far, I haven’t had any problems with the keyboard on the Air. I like that it’s quieter. I don’t miss the TouchBar, a touch-sensitive strip of shortcuts, emoji, and apps that floats above the keyboard on MacBook Pros.”“The speakers on the new Air are louder. How good they sound will depend on your source material.”Cons“If you’re someone who builds graphics, edits 4K videos, or processes large photos for a living, the Air isn’t going to cut it.”“The computer is not particularly innovative. Its chiseled build, high-resolution display, eighth-generational Core i5 processor, long-ish battery life, quiet keyboard, larger trackpad, and fingerprint sensor are not breaking any new ground.”MORE: The New MacBook Air Is Great, But There’s One Glaring FlawScore: 8/10The Wall Street JournalAt The Wall Street Journal, reviewer Joanna Stern firmly believes that the MacBook Air is still Apple’s best laptop and one that many people might like. But if you’re looking for a device with an outstanding keyboard, Stern said, the MacBook Air isn’t it.Once the leader, the Air is now the follower, and the competition is pulling ahead in features, ergonomics and battery life.Pros“With the redesign, the MacBook Air remains the best choice of all of Apple’s laptops.”“Instead of embracing touch screens on its laptops, Apple has decided to expand the trackpad to the size and shape of Kansas. OK, it’s actually 4.7 inches x 3 inches, and it’s wonderfully responsive, accurate and smooth.”“Absolutely not a novelty: Touch ID. The fingerprint sensor, embedded in the upper right corner of the new Air’s keyboard, beats typing in passwords.”Cons“Hate is a strong word for the keyboard so I’ll just say I strongly dislike it.”“Hate is the right word to describe my feelings on the 128GB of storage that comes with the $1,199 entry-level model of the Air. Not only does the laptop cost $200 more than its predecessor, but it starts with an amount of storage that was paltry even four years ago.”Score: No Score ProvidedTechCrunchTechCrunch reviewer Brian Heater says the MacBook Air was a nice upgrade over the previous generation and its display is downright impressive. But when you compare its internal specs to those of other machines in the market, its price might be a problem.Barring some major future upgrade, the 12-inch [MacBook] likely isn’t long for this world. And that’s perfectly fine. The new Air is very clearly the better buy.Pros“This latest generation is quieter, has a better feel and has the added benefit of a new rubberized bladder, which should protect from spills, along with particulate matter, which has become a bane of everyone with an earlier model’s existence.”“The display is, as advertised, a massive upgrade over the last model. If you’ve spent any time with a Retina display, you know the deal. It’s big and bright, with a nice color balance.”Cons“The new Air’s internals are, naturally, an upgrade across the board over the 2015 model, but it’s more of a mixed bag when compared to the MacBook. In fact, the concurrent existence of the two products is likely to cause confusion among buyers — and understandably so.”“The two USB-C ports are located on the same side, which means a bit more maneuvering when charging — though the new ports are much more diverse than the old power model.”Score: No Score ProvidedCredit: Laptop MagWhich MacBook Should You Buy?

The ACR, the Lung Cancer Alliance, the Society of Thoracic Surgeons and 38 other medical organizations want CMS to provide full national coverage for high-risk patients as defined in the USPSTF and provide coverage with evidence for other high-risk patients not included in USPSTF recommendations using data collected through existing registries.“Lung cancer kills more people each year than breast, colon and prostate cancers combined,” said Kazerooni. “For these other three cancers, there are well established and accepted screening tests and programs. MedCAC should recommend, and CMS should implement, broad national coverage for CT lung cancer screening so that those at high risk can be tested and thousands more people each year can be saved from this terrible disease.”The Affordable Care Act (ACA) requires that private insurers cover all medical exams or procedures that receive a grade of “B” or higher from the USPSTF without a co-pay. However, the ACA does not specify that Medicare provide full national coverage for beneficiaries. National Lung Cancer Screening Trial results and those of other smaller international randomized controlled trials show that CT lung cancer screening significantly reduces lung cancer deaths. Screening for current and former smokers with LDCT is the only method ever proven to reduce lung cancer mortality in this high-risk population and it has also been shown to be cost effective.“We strongly urge MedCAC to recommend that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) act on the USPSTF recommendation to provide national coverage for high-risk Medicare beneficiaries,” said Paul Ellenbogen, M.D., FACR, chair of the ACR Board of Chancellors. This would support screening programs across the nation, and, for the first time, enable providers and patients to strike back against the nation’s leading cancer killer. It is time for Medicare to support CT lung cancer screening.”The ACR is committed to assuring the quality and safety of lung cancer diagnostic care throughout this coverage determination process.For more information: www.cms.gov/live FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Videos | AAPM | July 29, 2019 VIDEO: Trends in Medical Physics at the AAPM 2019 meeting … read morelast_img read more
