YouTube revises policy bans dangerous prank videos

first_imgSAN BRUNO, Calif. — YouTube is trying to prevent otherwise bright people from doing dangerous things.The video-sharing network owned by Google is cracking down on harmful or dangerous pranks.Updated policies no longer allow challenges that present “an apparent risk of death” and ban content featuring children “participating in dangerous challenges that pose an imminent risk of injury or bodily harm.”YouTube also says it is drawing the line on content that “intends to incite violence or encourage dangerous or illegal activities” that have a risk of serious harm or death. They include bomb making or pranks that put people in physical danger.A recent “bird box challenge” featured videos of people engaging in activities while blindfolded.People also were sickened in a challenge that involved eating Tide detergent pods.The Associated Presslast_img read more

Zidanes second coming at Madrid like winning a trophy

first_imgMADRID: Real Madrid’s players feel like they have won a trophy following Zinedine Zidane’s return to the club after a troubling 10-month spell in the wake his departure, defender Alvaro Odriozola said.Zidane resigned as Madrid coach last May after winning a third consecutive Champions League title, but the Frenchman made a remarkable comeback earlier this month when Santiago Solari was sacked.That was less than five months after Julen Lopetegui was also removed from the role due to disappointing results. Also Read – Puducherry on top after 8-wkt win over ChandigarhThe European champions, who were knocked out of this year’s Champions League in the last 16 by Ajax Amsterdam after a chastening 4-1 defeat, enjoyed a therapeutic 2-0 win over Celta Vigo in Zidane’s first game back in charge.They will be looking to extend the positive feeling his return has brought when they host Huesca on Sunday.”Zidane’s return has reignited the hopes of supporters and for us it’s practically like winning a trophy, we are very happy,” Odriozola said in an interview with website La Galerna.”We have talked about what he likes about my game and about my weak points, ‘Zizou’ always tells you the truth and players appreciate sincerity like that.” Madrid are 12 points behind runaway La Liga leaders Barcelona and have no realistic prospect of winning a trophy this season after they were also eliminated in the Copa del Rey semi-finals by Barca.last_img read more

Brock aims to reduce its carbon emissions

Brock is aiming to reduce its carbon emissions over the next 10 years as part of the Niagara Sustainability Initiative (NSI) — a not-for-profit group that helps local organizations measure and reduce their emissions.The University is a participating organization in the project, which offers cost-reduced carbon management software and other items essential to being sustainable.Facilities Management is leading Brock’s involvement.“Our objective as part of this initiative is to help the University progressively reduce its carbon footprint,” said Tom Saint-Ivany, Associate Vice-President, Facilities Management. “We are looking to first understand the extent of our institution’s carbon emissions and then achieve a specified target reduction over a 10-year period.”Monitoring and data collection will start in January 2012. The University will use data from that year to establish the baseline levels of its carbon emissions.The initiative will bring together various groups at the University to monitor their carbon contributions. This includes Facilities Management, Procurement Services, Food Services, Residences, Conference and Event Services and the Campus Store. Student groups and organizations will also be involved as the program evolves.The following Brock properties in Niagara will be monitored though this initiative:main campuseast campusRodman Hallthe Brock Research and Innovation CentreNew buildings and future property acquisitions will also be included in the program.The Carbon Project will monitor direct greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from sources owned or controlled by the University. This includes boilers, generation facilities, furnaces and vehicles; indirect GHG emission from electricity purchased by the University; and indirect GHG emissions from employee air and rail business travel.Brock is aiming for a Bronze level of carbon reduction. That means a 20 per cent reduction in GHG emission intensity relative to the 2012 baseline over a 10-year period from 2013 to 2023.Other participating partners in the NSI initiative include Walker Industries, the City of Welland, Niagara College, Creative Sign Works and Synchro Engineering. read more

Ohio States offensive line locked and loaded

Ohio State football coach Urban Meyer announces the team’s offensive and defensive players of the week during his weekly press conference, but this Monday, he did something different. His offensive award was not to a single player, but to an entire unit: the offensive line.“Our offensive player of the week ran for 210 yards, had 15 knockdowns, scored 17 points and on the last drive of the game, killed four minutes and 30 seconds running the ball against a very good defense, so our offensive player of the game is our offensive line,” Meyer said of the unit’s performance in the Buckeyes’ 17-16 victory against Michigan State on Saturday.That offensive line consists of redshirt junior left tackle Jack Mewhort, junior left guard Andrew Norwell, redshirt junior center Corey Linsley, redshirt junior right guard Marcus Hall and senior right tackle Reid Fragel. Each has started all five games so far this season.Meyer expressed his satisfaction with the performance and progression of the offensive line through the season’s first five games, and especially in its most recent game.“Those five guys right now are locked and loaded, they’re together, they’re being well-coached, and they found a way to rush for 200 yards against a very stout team that doesn’t give up much rushing yardage,” Meyer said. “That’s the group right now that I’m most pleased with.”Coming into the season, however, the Buckeyes had less certainty with their offensive line, as they had to replace three starters from 2011.Norwell is the only returning starter in his same position from 2011, while Mewhort moved from right guard to left tackle. Hall had started five games at right guard in 2011, while Linsley and Fragel, the latter of whom was a tight end in his first three years with the Buckeyes, had never started a game as an offensive lineman at OSU.Mewhort said this year’s starting offensive line has come together well.“We’re really gelling well, and we’re getting better every day, so we’re really excited about the places we’re going,” Mewhort said.Offensive line coach Ed Warinner said the unit has “continued to grow” over the course of the season thus far.“They’ve played together for five games … we’re not a finished product there … we still have a lot of things to continue to grow and clean up and get better at, but I think they’re really playing hard, they’re starting to understand what we want in the spread offense, we’re trying to be physical up front,” Warinner said. “They practice that way and they’re starting to carry it to the game field and it was good, it was good to be able to finish off that game the way we did, and for them to be recognized by the head coach and the offensive staff as a unit that made the big impact, that was great.”Warinner said Meyer’s stamp of approval is meaningful to the offensive linemen because of the work they’ve put in.“I think it validates the hard work that they’ve put in, and just how hard they’re playing,” Warinner said. “There were four starting offensive linemen in this building at 6:30 this morning without anybody telling them they had to be here, without anybody making them have to be here. That tells me right now that they’re pretty all in.”Meyer specifically pointed out the progression of Fragel as a first-year offensive tackle for the Buckeyes.“Reid Fragel has become an offensive lineman. He wasn’t an offensive lineman at first, who are we kidding? He was a tight end playing offensive line that was trying to figure it out. His last two games, he’s now an offensive lineman, an Ohio State offensive lineman, which is, you say that around here, that’s pretty powerful stuff. We’ve had some great offensive linemen throughout the years,” Meyer said.While Meyer did praise the five starters, he expressed concern about the offensive line’s depth.“Unfortunately, we only got five (starting-caliber offensive linemen),” Meyer said. “(We) should have eight of them, we don’t. We have five guys right now.”The next test for the No. 12 Buckeyes’ offensive line is scheduled for Saturday in a home game versus No. 21 Nebraska at 8 p.m.Warinner said his unit will have to “be at our best” while going up against the Cornhuskers’ defensive front.“They have big defensive tackles that try to knock the guards back, they have defensive ends that are aggressive, quick,” Warinner said. “It’s a challenging defense … They are good up front. We’ll have to take it a notch up from last week.” read more

Athens struggling with new electronic metro tickets

first_img Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram The long queues and initial distress was just the beginning. The implementation of a new electronic ticketing system for the Athens metro train network continues to be shaky, at best, with only six of the electronic barriers being in operation. The initial plan was for all barriers to have been activated before Christmas, but now transport authorities are seeing to have no more than seven operating by new year’s eve. Despite the delay in activating the barriers, the Athens Urban Transport Organization (OASA) has already seen a positive impact at the stations where they have been in operation. For example, more electronic tickets have been validated at Doukissis Plakentias metro station, which has active barriers, than at Omonia or Syntagma in central Athens, which are the network’s busiest stops.Meanwhile, commuters are still trying to get used to the new system, and figure out how to issue and reload their cards at the automatic tellers, with OASA staff allocated in all stations to assist them, and particularly the elderly. last_img read more

He stated that the localize theme is “We can, I can, The Gambia Can” According to Mr. Modou Njai preparations are on high gears and they need the media to continue fostering their kind relations that they were accorded with. He noted that the backdrop of this effort is to create cancer awareness and to raise support in various ways for the revitalization of the existing cancer unit at Edward Francis Small Teaching Hospital Mr. Njai said this cancer awareness walk is organized by the ministry of health and social welfare and the office of the first lady who is spearheading the event.

Architect

first_imgThe idea of creating a magazine targeting the commercial construction space was on the table before Hanley Wood was acquired by CCMP Capital Advisors in August 2005. The company assembled a team of 20 executives—including major group publishers, chief editors and stakeholders—to help develop the Architect concept and launch the product. The team spent two years of due diligence, assessing the market opportunity. The time was also spent hiring staffers and creating technology platforms for the Web site.“The notion was that since Builder is at the hub of everything we do in residential construction, we thought we needed a hub for commercial construction. That’s where Architect came in,” says Goldstone. “There was a gap where none of the magazines in the market focused on the people and products and practice—they just focused on the big beautiful projects. Architect connects the projects with the people that are doing them, the products going into them and the business information of how to run a viable architectural practice. We’re doing that both in print and online.”Big Launch, Big ReturnWhat differentiated the launch of Architect from a number of other b-to-b launches is the time and amount of money that was spent pre-launch, Goldstone says. Shortly after the launch, Hanley Wood purchased Architecture and Architectural Lighting, and folded the content of each into Architect.“This was sort of an old school launch in that we knew it would take some major initial losses but that the idea was big enough to sustain the investment,” Goldstone says. Architect launched with two issues in 2006 and immediately went monthly in 2007. With the two acquisitions, the company was due to lose at least $2 million in its first year. But, the publisher generated $5 million in revenue and instead broke even in the first full year of the magazine’s operation.Today, Architect has a controlled circulation of 60,000 and the Web site features original content including Web-first stories, slideshows, video, podcast interviews, blogs, interactive maps and continuing education learning programs. The Architect staff uses a combination of the K4 publishing system and Adobe’s InDesign and InCopy programs to manage the magazine’s design and editorial workflow, and to convert easily from print to Web.“The two formats have their own particular strengths and weaknesses,” says editor-in-chief Ned Cramer. “Architects are highly visual people and the graphic freedom and photographic richness of a magazine strongly appeal to them. But architects, like every professional group, rely more and more on the Web as a fast and convenient way to gather and exchange information.”More recently, Hanley Wood this fall developed Hanley Wood TV, a product that spans the company’s Web sites. Architect TV is set to launch online early next year. It will feature editorial content such as construction practices and product information.In today’s growing e-media marketplace, Goldstone urges that anyone considering a magazine launch to invest equally in its companion Web site. “A great magazine will support a great Web site and a great Web site will support a great magazine. Having either a lousy magazine or a lousy Web site, in today’s market, will inevitably drag down your brand. You have to be ready to make the right type of investment and have enough resources.”MORE STARTUP STORIES:Glam MediaCraftInternet EvolutionScientific AmericanWTWH Media This was the coolest launch I’ve ever been a part of.”That’s how Hanley Wood Business Media president Peter Goldstone describes the 2006 launch of Architect. The magazine’s launch coincided with the Business Media group’s merger of its magazine and e-media operations, enabling the Architect brand to have a print and e-media play right from the start.“Architect was Hanley Wood’s first to launch parallel with the magazine and Web site,” Goldstone says. “Everyone who was involved with starting the magazine was also involved in the e-media launch. We didn’t talk about the magazine without talking about the Web play at the same time. We didn’t have two separate operating teams working in silos. It was completely integrated and seamless.”last_img read more

Related Content June 15, 2018 — Agfa announced that it has installed two DX-D 300 digital radiography (DR) solutions at the multi-office Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics, Potomac Valley Orthopaedic Associates Division, in Maryland. The DX-D 300s are replacing a previous, early-generation DR system.The Agfa DX-D 300 system was purchased through Chesepeake Medical Systems Inc., a regional Agfa channel partner. The customer reportedly chose Agfa for the excellent image quality, supported by Musica image processing software, and the exceptional service and support provided by Chesepeake Medical Systems Inc. and Agfa.Potomac Valley Orthopaedic Associates is one of the largest orthopaedic practices in the Washington metropolitan area, which includes the District of Columbia, Maryland and Virginia. Its different sites see between 80-100 patients every day.To replace an early-generation DR system, the center chose to install two Agfa DX-D 300 solutions, in its Olney and Columbia (Maryland) facilities. The installations were carried out in February 2018 over the weekends and after hours, to ensure that the workflow and daily operations were not impacted.Agfa’s DR solutions are designed according to the ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable) principle to deliver the optimum balance between low radiation dose and high image quality.Exam-independent, Agfa’s Musica image processing software instantly delivers high DR image quality with very efficient workflow. Musica’s latest technology improvements provide even more detail in images. Along with enhanced noise suppression and superb brightness and density stabilization, Musica image processing software provides excellent detail at a lower dose, according to the company.Agfa’s DR solutions include a choice of fixed, tethered and wireless detectors, with either cesium iodide (CsI) or gadolinium oxy-sulphide (GOS) technology. CsI also offers the potential for dose reduction[1].By allowing a potential dose reduction and increasing diagnostic confidence, the DX-D 300 answers the need for constant enhancement of patient comfort and performance in the orthopaedic practice.The floor-mounted DX-D 300 with fully motorized U-arm is easy and cost-effective to install, even in limited spaces, according to Agfa. It can handle a broad range of X-ray studies, including lateral exams and full leg/full spine with automatic image stitching. This versatility makes it ideal for an orthopaedic environment.”Agfa went beyond the call of duty to accommodate the after-hours installation and extra application support,” commented Joan Fitzgerald, RN, CNOR, clinical administrator at Potomac Valley Orthopaedic Associates. “We would recommend Agfa and the DX-D 300 solutions, which are supporting our commitment to providing compassionate, proven and prompt care to all patients.”For more information: www.agfahealthcare.comReference[1]  Testing with board-certified radiologists has determined that Cesium Bromide (CR) and Cesium Iodide (DR) Detectors, when used with MUSICA image processing, can provide dose reductions of 50 to 60%, compared to traditional Barium Fluoro Bromide CR systems.

There have been tense moments and skirmishes since but nothing that soldiers would describe as an industrial-scale battle between two armies IE Related News Need to deal with our military past with genuine scholarship not jingoism — like this new book on 1971 On a flight back home Friday morning as I was lost reading Eagles Over Bangladesh (HarperCollins 2013) PVS Jagan Mohan and Samir Chopra’s brilliantly researched and reconstructed history of the air war in the eastern sector in 1971 an old friend sitting next to me asked why I was so fascinated with military history Funnily I had been asked the same question recently by a prominent young national political leader on the sidelines of a wedding His question in fact was sharper maybe because he is so much younger: “Why are you so obsessed with war” I said military history was indeed a fad with some But he had made me think harder and I said that in the Indian context it wasn’t wars that fascinated me it was the decade of the Sixties In so many ways this rocky decade defined the new Indian republic There were half a dozen reasons and an equal number of occasions when India could have broken up or lost its identity Certainly the remarkably secure and united India that we live in today was then unimaginable Some of these reasons were internal secessionist movements from the Tamils (the DMK was as separatist as it was iconoclastic) to the northeastern tribes and then the death of two popular prime ministers (Jawaharlal Nehru and Lal Bahadur Shastri) while in office But the 1960s was also India’s decade of wars It started with the Goa campaign in December 1961 Celebrations were not yet over when the Chinese stormed across the Himalayas in 1962 That led to Nehru’s sad lonely and defeated decline But it also rid India’s defence forces of a curse called Krishna Menon and created a national consensus for stronger militaries This was a work in progress when Pakistan first successfully probed our vulnerabilities in Kutch in 1965 and encouraged launched a large invasion of Kashmir later the same year resulting in our first full-scale war in September involving all three forces All three were caught sort of half-cocked in the middle of a massive expansion and modernisation but achieved a reasonable stalemate There were many situations during that 22-day war when India’s fate to steal from the title of Lt Gen LP Sen’s wonderful autobiographical account of the 1947-48 Kashmir campaign hung by a slender thread In 1967 there was another probe by the Chinese in Sikkim’s Nathu-la And although this episode is mostly forgotten now while it lasted the intensity of fighting was much greater than at any time in Kargil 1999 It had also come when recovering from two big wars and fighting large-scale starvation in a ship-to-mouth situation and with a still wobbly Indira Gandhi India was at its most vulnerable ever ONE could argue that the 1971 Bangladesh war was also in many ways an extension or rather conclusion of the same violent decade For both countries their anger simmering after the inconclusive 1965 engagement this was like returning to unfinished business If you took a convenient liberty and defined the decade as 1961 to ’71 two things would stand out One that of all the combat casualties suffered by the Indian armed forces in the 65 years since Independence nearly 80 per cent came in this rough decade as besides the Portuguese the Chinese and the Pakistanis they also fought two really nasty insurgencies in Nagaland and Mizoram Two that the end of that decade also marked India’s last full-scale conventional war There have been tense moments and skirmishes since but nothing that soldiers would describe as an industrial-scale battle between two armies In fact the British general Rupert Smith in his classic The Utility of Force questioning the cost-effectiveness and efficacy of traditional armies today mentions that the last time two large bodies of tanks were locked in battle over a large theatre was during the Israeli-Arab Yom Kippur War of 1973 and yet armies around the world still maintain tens of thousands of tanks It makes us reflect on our own situation where the last fighting on any scale whatsoever between two opposing tank forces took place in December 1971 Since then our respective cavalries have been busy training exercising and indeed most brilliantly and happily parading at national ceremonies Unfortunately even four decades of relative peace have not given us the sense of distance and detachment to start taking a non-partisan fair and professional view of our military history Our national discourse (sadly India’s is now much worse than Pakistan’s) has turned so jingoistic today that you sometimes wonder if 10 years of total peace have left us itchy and impatient for some “action” So here is my riposte to those who think I am obsessed with military history: how come our society in its most secure upwardly mobile and internally focused phase ever is not willing to sit back and savour peace Why is it still fighting in its mind the wars of the past notably 1962 a madness that resumes any time even a five-man Chinese patrol strays to our side of the Line of Actual Control COULD it be that one reason our societies have not learnt to enjoy peace and security is the shyness with which we approach our military past where our military historians find it difficult to distance themselves from the national flag or in the case of former soldiers from the regimental pennant Fair dispassionate and clinical recording and analysis of military history serves to defang jingoism unlike Amar Chitra Katha or Doordarshan-style “reconstructions” or the equally sad rubbish in Pakistani school textbooks that perpetuate hatred and fear and brainwash both our societies to view our militaries only after wrapping our minds in olive green or khaki It is because we confuse military history with perpetuating commando-comic mythologies that we as a society have failed to achieve the collective strategic calm we deserve and which our wonderful armed forces have earned for us That is why writers and historians like Jagan Mohan and Chopra are so unique and valuable I know neither of them personally — which underlines how outdated I am as a reporter — but their latest book is compulsory and therapeutic reading for anybody who loves the armed forces or is interested in national security It is a remarkably detailed and dispassionate account of IAF operations in the eastern sector in that decisive war While India’s control of the skies in that theatre was never disputed the duo also remind you that there was a tiny group of equally proficient and patriotic fliers at the other end even if they added up to just one squadron of Sabres confined to one airbase (Tezgaon at Dhaka) They were willing to challenge and tangle with repeated waves of IAF attackers despite losses and did not give up until their airfield was totally cratered by the MiGs innovatively using a runway-busting Russian bomb That episode is one of the more striking parts of this piece of documented and annotated research so rare in India For each major skirmish they have reached out to Pakistani sources for their side of the story The result is a credible non-partisan assessment and a far cry from the usual gallantry award citations This isn’t really a review and there are too many stirring sections in the book to list in a column But one stays with me The first air skirmish of 1971 took place at Boyra a few miles into Bangladesh on November 22 10 days before war actually began Four IAF Gnats ambushed and shot down three Sabres strafing Indian army units Of the two Pakistani pilots who ejected one was Flg Off Khalil Ahmed brother of diplomat Aziz Ahmed Khan who did two postings in India the last as one of Pakistan’s most popular high commissioners We have been friends for 25 years and once in a

still-green pilot) was the first PoW of 1971 The second captured pilot the book reminds you Flg Off Parvez Mehdi Qureshi rose to become the chief of the PAF A gem from a footnote in the book: among the congratulatory notes he received was one from Donald Lazarus who as an equally young Flg Off in a Gnat had shot him down Qureshi not only replied to him but also complimented him on the “fight” shown by IAF pilots that day Can you find a more touching story of the business of soldiering of chivalry and honour on both sides with such formidable military histories Ok I will tell you just one more When these two PAF pilots’ parachutes landed soldiers of 4 Sikh who they had been strafing began thrashing them with rifle butts They only survived because a young Indian major rushed out
