Kolkata: Popular Bengali actor and Trinamool Congress MP Dev, alias Deepak Adhikari, who is contesting to retain his Ghatal Lok Sabha seat, said on Thursday that his party did not need to indulge in mudslinging as the state government has undertaken numerous development works.Dev, contesting the polls for the second time, also said that he was more experienced this time. “I have worked whole heartedly for the people of Ghatal. The first two years were spent in learning. This time I am more experienced and if I win, you will see a new ‘Dev’. We don’t need to indulge in mudslinging as our Chief Minister has done enough for the state,” Dev said after kicking off his election campaign by offering puja at a temple.

For Dev, the priority is “to reach out to the people with the development works done by him and the party.” Asked to rate himself as a parliamentarian, he said: “The number keeps changing. As I belong to the film industry, I am used to the fact that if one film is successful, it is not necessary that the next one will do well too.” Also Read – Bengal civic volunteer dies in road mishap on national highway”I am a very practical person,” he said. Dev mentioned that he read somewhere that in terms of the funds released under the Members of Parliament Local Area Development Scheme (MPLADS), he occupied the third position, but he never thought about all this while working. “I had spoken about the Ghatal Masterplan in the parliament. It had been sanctioned, but the funds have not been released till date. I also spoke about the railways. In this way, I have learnt how to work,” he said. Appealing to the people to repose their trust in him, Dev said that given a chance, he would do more things that he could not accomplish in his first tenure as the MP. Ghatal goes to the polls on May 12 in the sixth round of the seven-phase Lok Sabha elections. With agency inputs read more
24 October 2008Lebanon is taking important steps forward after the deadly sectarian violence earlier this year, but a worrying series of political assassinations and explosions continues to plague the country, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says in a new report. Lebanon is taking important steps forward after the deadly sectarian violence earlier this year, but a worrying series of political assassinations and explosions continues to plague the country, Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon says in a new report.In his latest report on the implementation of Security Council 1559, which calls for free and fair presidential elections in Lebanon without interference from foreign groups and for the disbanding of all militia, Mr. Ban writes that the country “was taken to the brink of civil war and back.“The violence that erupted in Lebanon in May represented one of the greatest threats to the very foundations of the Lebanese State in recent years, and a painful reminder to all Lebanese of the threats posed by the existence of armed groups outside the control of the State.”But he calls the election of Michel Suleiman as President at the end of May as “a significant step forward” to implementing resolution 1559, which the Council adopted in 2004 amid concern about the ongoing tensions and lack of stability within Lebanon.“The election [of Mr. Suleiman] signalled the reactivation of Lebanon’s constitutional process, to which all parties in Lebanon have since recommitted themselves. In doing so, the Lebanese have taken a step further towards strengthening the sovereignty, stability, unity and political independence of their country.”The report stresses the need for all parties to implement the Doha accord that ended the violence, including their commitments to refrain from using weapons to settle internal political disputes.Mr. Ban cautions that the process of reconciliation is at an early stage and many complex challenges remain ahead, including how to deal with the ongoing assassinations and attacks.“I am in particular disturbed by what appears to be an emerging pattern of attacks against the Lebanese armed forces, a prominent symbol of the authority of the State. I call on the Lebanese authorities to bring to justice all those who have perpetrated such crimes.”The issue of Hizbollah’s weapons remains “central to the political debate,” he notes, saying the armed group’s “maintenance of separate military assets and infrastructure is a fundamental challenge to the Government’s attempts to consolidate the sovereignty and authority of the Lebanese State and obstructs constructive dialogue on political and security issues.”The disarming and disbanding of all militia groups in the country, whether they are Lebanese or non-Lebanese, must be accomplished through an inclusive political dialogue, the Secretary-General adds.He also writes that he is encouraged by the recent moves of Lebanon and Syria to normalize diplomatic relations between the two neighbours. read more
The army yesterday released more than 300 former LTTE cadres who had undergone rehabilitation.The former rebels were freed and handed over to their relatives at a ceremony held in Vavuniya yesterday to mark the ‘Thai Pongal’ festival. Tamil media reports from Jaffna said that several former female LTTE cadres were among those released.The Minister of Rehabilitation and Prison Reforms Chandrasiri Gajadeera and top Military officials attended the function.
“This is not a report that features doom and gloom – it’s a report that features good news,” Joseph Connor, the Under-Secretary-General for Administration and Management, told reporters at a press briefing in New York. He said Member States were expected to contribute more to the UN in regular dues than in any prior year – amounting to $4,716 million, compared with $2,893 million last year. The US was expected to pay $1,666 million, including $625 million paid last Friday. With legislative directives in place, “payment of sizeable amounts from the United States to the United Nations is at hand,” said Mr. Connor. The UN has funds in excess of current requirements. Washington’s payments include back and current dues for the UN’s regular budget, peacekeeping operations and international tribunals. Looking back on the history of the US arrears problem, which has plagued the UN over successive administrations, Mr. Connor said, “We’re looking at numbers we’ve never looked at in a long number of years here, but basically the key element here is that there will only be relatively speaking about $600 million unpaid, as opposed to $1.9 billion that we’d been looking at.” In other words, he added, “they’re cutting it by two-thirds.” “You’ve never heard me say this,” said Mr. Connor to the journalists, many of whom have attended his previous briefings on the UN’s dire financial situation. “The United Nations has funds in excess of current requirements.” While welcoming these developments as a “step in the right direction,” the Under-Secretary-General said the UN’s financial situation was “still somewhat tenuous for an Organization that has no reserves, no capital and no borrowing capacity.” read more
“We are deeply concerned about the situation of Palestine refugees in Khan Eshieh and the real risk of it becoming another Yarmouk,” said Chris Gunness, the spokesperson for the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). Four Palestinians were killed on the night of 18 October as they attempted to leave the Khan Eshieh camp, to which access has been highly restricted. Mr. Gunness said that Nofeh Mohammed Jarad, who was in her 60’s, her daughter Ibaa Saeed al-Nader, 22, their driver and a one-year old baby were all killed when their vehicle was shelled around 10 p.m. The mother of the baby, a Syrian citizen, also died in the incident. “UNRWA condemns this attack and the killing and wounding of all civilians including Palestine refugees,” the spokesperson said, calling on those responsible to abide by their obligations under international humanitarian law and demanded that the parties to the conflict do their utmost to protect civilian life in accordance with international law. Tightened security around the area has severely reduced the ability of residents to move safely and readily access humanitarian aid and medical support, and camp residents face grave risks when attempting to leave Khan Eshieh, Mr. Gunness said. UNRWA renews its call for full humanitarian access to Khan Eshieh to deliver emergency food, cash assistance and medicines. Access to humanitarian assistance has been constrained since 2013 and UNRWA is particularly concerned about a lack of medicines and the impact this will have on children, chronic disease patients and the elderly in Khan Eshieh. “UNRWA calls on the parties to allow civilians, who wish to leave the area, to do so in safety,” he said. The Khan Eshieh camp, located in a rural area south of Damascus, has experienced intensified armed conflict since 17 May 2016. This has resulted in an increasing number of civilian casualties, including at least 31 Palestine refugees killed. read more

In what is arguably a first, Milo Yiannopoulos has apologised for his offensive remarks. Not for his usual vitriolic remarks, which make each of his public appearances seem like a study in hate speech, but for a statement that came off as an endorsement of paedophilia. The feisty right wing commentator was captured in a video defending sexual relationships between teenage boys and older men as an experience that “can be hugely positive”, as “those older men help those younger boys discover who they are”. The usually unabashed contrarian claimed that his statement was taken out of context and that he was speaking about his own experience as a young gay teenager when he claimed that the age of consent is “not this black-and-white thing”. His apology remained unaccepted as this revelation cost him a speaking engagement, a $250,000 book publishing deal with a Simon & Schuster imprint, as well as his position as senior editor of Breitbart News, after employees threatened to step out if he remained in place. Breitbart News has been instrumental in spreading the ‘alt-right’ ideology that Donald Trump campaigned on, and its former executive, Steve Bannon, is now the White House’s chief strategist. Some predict this turn of events will mark the fall of Yiannopoulos, who changed his name from Hanrahan, adopting his grandmother’s maiden name. In one of his editorials, the agitator described Greeks as lazy, hairy people who deserve all punishment sent to them for their financial conduct. Facebook Twitter: @NeosKosmos Instagram read more

Play A sample experimental trial from the experiment. Video credit: Alik Mokeichev. The researchers observed which bar the fish detected and shot at each time and found they shot most often at bars oriented perpendicular to the background pattern, suggesting these objects were most obviously visible to them. They then tested humans with the same stimuli, and found that they too were most likely to pick out the bars aligned perpendicular to the background. These results suggest the archer fish have orientation-based saliency as humans do.The fact that archer fish have no visual cortex means the neural mechanism may be similar to that in mammals, but located elsewhere in the brain, or there may be a completely different mechanism. So far, the neural pathways are unknown in the archer fish.The study also raises the question of whether orientation salience evolved differently in fish and mammals, or evolved only once in an ancient common ancestor, and has been conserved for millions of years because of its usefulness. The ability may also be much more widespread than previously thought.The paper was published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences (PNAS).

Image: by R.Wampers, via Wikipedia (PhysOrg.com) — The ability to see objects oriented differently to the background, which is known as orientation-based saliency, has long been thought to be confined to mammals, but a new study has found that archer fish have this ability, despite having no visual cortex in their brains.

In humans this ability is controlled by neural pathways in the visual cortex, and helps in identifying important objects in the visual field.Archer fish (Toxotes jaculatrix) catch insects moving on tree branches or flying above by accurately spitting a jet of water at them to knock them into the water. They also accurately determine the falling insect’s trajectory to determine exactly where it will hit the water. Their abilities are so impressive that researchers from the Ben Gurion University of the Negev in Israel wondered if they exhibited orientation saliency as well.The researchers, led by computer scientist Ohad Ben-Shahar, trained five archer fish to shoot at images of insects on an LCD screen above their tanks. They then replaced the images of insects with a series of images of two bars representing prey objects set against a patterned background representing the habitat. The bars were shown either both oriented in the same direction as the background pattern, both perpendicular to the pattern, or with one bar in each direction. read more
Google Chrome 5 beta released This document is subject to copyright. Apart from any fair dealing for the purpose of private study or research, no part may be reproduced without the written permission. The content is provided for information purposes only. (PhysOrg.com) — Ah the beta version. It is a special time in a new versions life, when the world at large gets a first look at what the end product will be. Kind of a like a sonogram for new technology. Of course, when you are looking at a human fetus, you know what the features will be: two hands, ten toes and hopefully no vestigial tail. With a beta bit of software the world will pour over it, checking out what is new and getting ready to poke at all of its features. Google brought a new baby beta into the world this week, Google Chrome 11.What features will this new version of Google’s web browser have? Well, the features listed thus far include both support for the HTML5 speech input API (demo page). The speech input API is the real big news here, since it will allow developers to create apps for Google Chrome 11 that have the capability of speech to text technology. That’s right, you talk and it types it up, without having to buy expensive software like Dragon Speech Naturally.This new feature is not really a shocker, when you consider that this feature came to Google Voice for Android devices back in August. The Voice Actions feature on the mobile version has allowed users to dictate texts and e-mails, write notes, navigate the web and even set your alarm.The new beta will also feature a sneak peek at a GPU-accelerated 3D CSS. This will allow developers to apply 3D effects to web page content with the use of CSS. That will allow users view websites with 3D effects very soon.No word on when the software will get out of beat.

Kolkata: Protests erupted in various parts of West Bengal after the BJP, in its first list of 28 candidates, nominated its veterans and defectors from the ruling Trinamool Congress to take on Mamata Banerjee’s party in the state. With old-timers being overlooked in favour of turncoats and newcomers, protestors gathered outside BJP offices in various parts of the state and, in some places, put up posters of rejected ticket aspirants outside the offices. Also Read – Bose & Gandhi: More similar than apart, says Sugata Bose BJP state vice-president Raj Kamal Pathak submitted his resignation after he was denied a party ticket. The saffron party, which bagged two Lok Sabha seats in the state in the 2014 elections, is now targeting 23 of the state’s 42 constituencies. Of its 28 candidates, nearly 25 are new faces, with a thrust on active political workers rather than greenhorns from the glamour world. Unlike the TMC which had 18 new faces and a mix of old-timers and greenhorns, hardcore politicians and personalities from the film industry, the BJP has put faith on its own leaders and defectors from other parties. Also Read – Rs 13,000 crore investment to provide 2 lakh jobs: Mamata “If after serving the party for three decades and holding the post of vice-president do not make me qualified to get a party ticket, it is better to resign from the post,” Pathak said. The veteran BJP leader wanted to contest from Hooghly district, but he was overlooked in favour of a newcomer in the party. BJP state president Dilip Ghosh said efforts will be made to pacify the dissidents. “There can be resentment in some places, but everything can be sorted out through discussions,” BJP state secretary Rahul Sinha said. This is not the first time the BJP has faced such protests. During the Kolkata Municipal Corporation polls in 2015, several ticket aspirants staged protest rallies outside the party office. Of the candidates, five had recently defected to the saffron party from the Trinamool Congress and one from the CPI(M). Union minister and BJP MP from Asansol Lok Sabha constituency Babul Supriyo has been renominated from the same seat and is pitted against actor Moon Moon Sen of the TMC. State BJP president Dilip Ghosh will contest from Medinipur seat against TMC leader Manas Bhunia. BJP national secretary Rahul Sinha will take on TMC heavyweight Sudip Bandopadhyay in Kolkata North Lok Sabha seat. State BJP vice-president and Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose’s grandnephew, Chandra Kumar Bose will contest from Kolkata South Lok Sabha seat. Former IPS officer Bharati Ghosh, once known to be close to Chief Minister Mamata Banerjee, will be fighting against TMC candidate and actor Dipak Adhikary, popularly known as ‘Dev’, from Ghatal Lok Sabha constituency. The BJP has fielded former Trinamool Congress MLA Arjun Singh from Barrackpur Lok Sabha seat. Singh, who had recently joined the saffron party, has been pitted against TMC’s Dinesh Trivedi. In Coochbebar Lok Sabha seat, the party has fielded former TMC youth leader Nishith Pramanik, while in Jadavpur, expelled TMC MP Anupam Hazra will contest against TMC’s Mimi Chakraborty, an actor by profession. Another former TMC MP Soumitra Khan, who joined the BJP in January, has been given ticket from Bishnupur (SC) Lok Sabha seat. Former CPI(M) MLA Khagen Murmu, who too had switched over to the BJP, will contest from Malda North seat against TMC’s Mausam Benazir Noor, who had recently defected to the party from the Congress, in Malda Uttar seat. Former TMC leader Sreerupa Mitra Chowdhury, who had contested elections on a TMC ticket from New Delhi, is the BJP candidate from the neighbouring Malda South seat. There are four women candidates and one Muslim nominee in the first list. The BJP in minority-dominated seats such as Malda South, Malda North and Basirhat did not field any candidate from the community. “We do not believe in giving tickets just on the basis of religion. For us winnability is the biggest criteria,” said a state BJP leader. The Lok Sabha elections in the state will be held from April 11 till May 19 in seven phases. read more

The Carestream PACS was demonstrated at the event, which provides a platform for showing live demonstrations of the latest versions of CT image post-processing software.This was the first time that it included a PACS console.Orly Goitein, M.D., head of cardiovascular imaging at the Sheba Medical Center, Tel Aviv, Israel, carried out three live demonstrations using the Carestream PACS, which included cardiac, vascular and oncology cases. These case presentations fully demonstrated the latest improvements to the console, some of which are still undergoing development.“The capabilities of the Carestream PACS workstation are impressive,” Goitein said. “The automatic volumetric multi-modality registration of prior exams allows fast, easy and efficient study comparison, which are daily tasks radiologists deal with. The dedicated post processing packages (for example: the cardiac, vascular and oncology packages) offer advanced reconstruction tools inherent within this PACS workstation system.”Integrating 3-D image processing and image analysis tools into PACS workstations has led to marked enhancements in workflow since radiologists no longer need to go to a special workstation dedicated to post-processing. The Carestream PACS architecture enables the use of 3-D functions via its intuitive user interface from any workstation, inside or outside the facility.Advanced processing capabilities include: automatic segmentation of all vessels (including cardiac vessels), automatic volume synchronization of different exams, multiplanar reconstruction (MPR) (MIP/MinMIP/CurveMPR), volume rendering, Stenosis quantification and aneurysm assessment, measurement of cardiac ejection fraction, CT/MR/PET image fusion, lesion detection and quantification and specialized measurement tools for mammography and orthopedics.For more information: www.carestream.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Technology | Artificial Intelligence | June 20, 2019 TeraRecon Receives First-of-Kind FDA Determination for Northstar AI Results Explorer Advanced visualization and artificial intelligence (AI) technology provider TeraRecon has successfully completed a U.S… read more Image courtesy of Philips Healthcare Feature | Advanced Visualization | July 02, 2019 | By Jeff Zagoudis Augmented Reality Versus 3-D Printing for Radiology Three-dimensional (3-D) printing and… read more News | Advanced Visualization | July 03, 2019 TeraRecon Unveils iNtuition AI Data Extractor Artificial Intelligence (AI) and advanced visualization company TeraRecon announced its new iNtuition AI Data Extractor… read more News | February 14, 2011 Demonstrations Show Off PACS’ New 3-D Capabilities Technology | Virtual and Augmented Reality | June 04, 2019 Ann Arbor Startup Launches Augmented Reality MRI Simulator SpellBound, an Ann Arbor startup specializing in augmented reality (AR) tools for children in hospitals, has officially… read more News | Medical 3-D Printing | August 08, 2019 RSNA and ACR to Collaborate on Landmark Medical 3D Printing Registry The Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) and the American College of Radiology (ACR) will launch a new medical… read more Technology | Virtual and Augmented Reality | June 10, 2019 Medivis SurgicalAR Gets FDA Clearance Medivis announced that its augmented reality (AR) technology platform for surgical applications, SurgicalAR, has… read more Technology | Neuro Imaging | August 07, 2019 Synaptive Medical Launches Modus Plan With Automated Tractography Segmentation Synaptive Medical announced the U.S. launch and availability of Modus Plan featuring BrightMatter AutoSeg.
