first_imgVANCOUVER — A new study by Canadian researchers shows that black bears need different species of salmon rather than huge numbers of them in a short period to be healthy.Lead author Christina Service says it is the equivalent of humans going to an all-you-can-eat buffet for just a couple of days versus having one good meal a day for many months.The PhD candidate from the University of Victoria says if bears have access to a portfolio of different salmon species, then they have access to more and better food for a longer period of the year.The team of researchers used chemical techniques on hair samples from black bears to estimate their salmon consumption, which showed population productivity and health.They studied animals across a 22,000-kilometre stretch along coastal British Columbia’s “Great Bear Rainforest,” in collaboration with the Wuikinuxv, Nuxalk, Heiltsuk and Kitasoo/Xai’xais First Nations.Kitasoo/Xai’xais First Nation Chief Councillor and study collaborator Douglas Neasloss says he is concerned that the federal government’s current salmon management focuses on large salmon runs and often ignores smaller runs that contribute to diversity.The Canadian Presslast_img read more


Wednesday was less intense, but the politicians’ anger at big tech was still very much on display.Mark Royland, an information security executive at Amazon Web Service, was repeatedly asked questions he couldn’t answer.“If I connect my Amazon account to Facebook, what information and I sharing between the two platforms?” U.K. Conservative MP Damian Collins asked.“I’m not aware of any way you do connect Facebook to Amazon,” Royland answered.“So you’re saying you can’t do it? You can’t connect your Facebook and Amazon accounts?” Collins followed up.“As far as I know, that’s true. I’ll follow up to make sure that’s true,” Royland repeated.Three minutes later, Collins was following to point out that Royland was wrong, citing Amazon’s website.“It says ‘How do I connect my Facebook account to Amazon?’ This is from Amazon.com,” Collins said.“So I’ll just ask again, if you do that, what sort of data are you sharing between the two platforms?”Royland said he didn’t know.Geist said that even if the committee meeting was heavy on political grandstanding, the international co-operation could lead to numerous countries — Canada included — experimenting with different tactics for regulating the big tech companies, and then sharing what works best.That was an idea echoed by Aaron Shull, managing director and general counsel for the Centre for International Governance Innovation. Shul noted that all three parties were largely aligned on the need to regulate companies like Google and Facebook.“What we’re talking about is regulating a segment of our economy and doing it in a way that keeps the best interests of Canadians in mind,” Shul said.“I also think that it’ll make Canada regulate or govern this space in a really sound way, because it’ll be driven by policy and not politics.” If there was one overwhelming takeaway from this week’s hearings before the International Grand Committee on Big Data, Privacy and Democracy in Ottawa, it’s that the days of big tech operating largely free of regulatory scrutiny appear to be over.Legislators from all three of Canada’s major parties — along with others from around the world — made it known that they’re fed up with the privacy issues, anti-competitive behaviour and the sense that the largest technology companies are more powerful than governments.“If we take away a little bit of the grandstanding of the grand committee — because there’s certainly some element of that — the reality is that the conversation taking place is far different than the one that would’ve taken place a year or two ago,” said Michael Geist, Canada Research Chair in internet and e-commerce law.“The companies tended to project a little bit that they’re in a conversation with politicians, and the politicians feel that this isn’t a conversation, this a regulatory hearing, and you’re required to follow the law, and not have a conversation about following it.” Terence Corcoran: Politicians try bullying Big Tech into doing their censorship dirty work Jim Balsillie : ‘Data is not the new oil – it’s the new plutonium’ Artificial intelligence is at the heart of online toxicity, Grand Committee hears Facebook Inc. was public enemy No. 1 for the politicians assembled in Ottawa, but over the course of three days the anger sprawled to include Amazon Inc. and its Alexa voice assistant and Microsoft Corp.’s ownership of LinkedIn. Even Apple Inc. came under fire, with one U.K. lawmaker questioning whether the iPhone maker should allow the Facebook app onto its phones.Related Stories:Facebook’s Zuckerberg says Warren as U.S. president would be bad for techU.S., U.K. urge Facebook not to encrypt messages as they fight child abuse, terrorism“Now, Facebook has done your industry a lot of damage.

UN Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA) spokesman Manoel de Almeida e Silva told reporters in Kabul that the Joint Electoral Management Body (JEMB) – the UN-Afghan organization charged with running the polling process – has delivered the vast majority of election materials to its provincial offices, where they are now being sent to individual polling sites.Training staff across the country are currently teaching 5,000 polling centre supervisors about their duties on 9 October. These supervisors will in turn instruct an estimated 115,000 or more polling officials, Mr. de Almeida e Silva said. A budget of $6.1 million has also been set aside to pay for the polling officials and polling centre supervisors.Mr. de Almeida e Silva said the voting screens, used to protect a person’s privacy when they cast their ballot, are being constructed locally in each region using available resources, so they may not look identical nationwide. “They are being made primarily with metal, wood or cardboard,” he said.Election assistance is also coming from a non-human source – donkeys. Some 300 of the animals are being used to deliver voting materials in the provinces of Badakhshan and Nuristan in the northeast, Farah in the southwest and Panjshir, not far from Kabul.More than 10 million Afghans, including at least 4 million women, have been registered to vote. Between 1 million and 1.4 million refugees still living in neighbouring Iran and Pakistan are also expected to cast their ballots. read more

(TSX:QSR), in an interview.Tim Hortons had 683 U.S. locations as of Dec. 31, 2016, according to financial documents. Burger King’s U.S. operations had more than 7,000 restaurants as of Dec. 31, 2015, according to the most recent filing that separates the U.S. from other markets.Schwartz said Tim Hortons “should be many, many times our current size” in the United States but added there’s no target number.He said that the plan has not changed since Trump’s election in November or several controversial executive orders that the president has signed since moving into the White House in January.“We want to expand our brands all around the world and that also doesn’t change based on the political environment,” Schwartz said.RBI is also intent on rapidly expanding Tim Hortons around the world, signing three separate master franchise joint venture agreements to bring the chain to the Philippines, Great Britain and Mexico. The company expects to open the first locations in some of those markets this year, said chief financial officer Josh Kobza.Schwartz is the latest head of a major Canadian company to offer insight on how they view Trump’s election, with many seeing his expected policies as positive for their bottom lines.Last week, the CEOs of Air Canada (TSX:AC) and WestJet Airlines (TSX:WJA) both expressed hope that the airline industry in Canada could benefit from Trump’s policies.WestJet CEO Gregg Saretsky said uncertainty around new U.S. border policies could increase foreign tourist interest in Canada, while Air Canada CEO Calin Rovinescu said if Trump cuts taxes for the American airline industry, Canada might do something similar.Also last week, Suncor Energy (TSX:SU) CEO Steve Williams said he doesn’t anticipate Trump will introduce a border adjustment tax as Canada is not near the top of America’s list of trade concerns.RBI’s CEO made his comments the same day the company served up a big jump in profit.Its net income for the 12 months ended Dec. 31 more than tripled to US$345.6 million, or $1.45 per share, including US$118.4 million or 50 cents per share in the fourth quarter.The full-year profit, reported in U.S. currency, was up from $103.9 million or 50 cents per share in 2015 and fourth-quarter net income was up from $51.7 million or 25 cents per share.RBI says its full-year revenue was up 2.3 per cent, while revenue in the fourth quarter was up 5.2 per cent year-over-year.Total revenue for 2016 was US$4.15 billion, including US$1.11 billion in the fourth quarter. Revenue in 2015 was $4.05 billion, including $1.06 billion in that year’s fourth quarter.Tim Hortons accounted for US$3.00 billion of RBI’s total annual revenue while Burger King contributed $1.14 billion for the year.Follow @AleksSagan on Twitter. read more


Caledonian Sleeper passengers were woken up and kicked off their train at Stafford in the latest blow to hit the new service.The overnight Lowlander service from London to Scotland was forced to a halt in the West Midlands due to a “technical issue” in the early hours of Wednesday.Some 150 passengers who had paid for double beds and comfort seats were offered replacement coaches and trains to take them more than 260 miles to Edinburgh and Glasgow.They were promised full refunds after the termination – a result of damage to the wheels of the train – delayed them by up to five hours.The Wednesday night service from Glasgow and Edinburgh to London was also cancelled as a result of the fault.It is the latest in a series of problems that have plagued Caledonian Sleeper’s new £150 million fleet after it entered service in late April. Trains have been cancelled or delayed on more than a third of the days the Serco-operated service has run since the revamp, The Telegraph can disclose.Passengers paying up to £350 for tickets have also complained of water leaks, broken toilets and coffee machines, booking mix-ups and a lack of staff. Caledonian Sleeper promised to transform the experience of travelling by train between England and Scotland with its new fleet, which runs between London Euston, Edinburgh and Glasgow.But last month its inaugural service from Scotland to London arrived three hours late due to signaling issues on the line. At the time, Network Rail said there was also an issue with the train itself.Since then, two other services – a northbound London-Edinburgh train and a southbound Edinburgh-London train – have failed to complete their journeys. April Masson, who was in a seated coach on Wednesday morning, tweeted: “The most uncomfortable I’ve ever felt on a train.”Limping along at 10mph on a #caledoniansleeper from Euston to Glasgow which can only be described as having a flat tyre.”Frank Fletcher said there was a “total lack of communication” from train staff after he left his carriage in Stafford.Writing on Twitter, he claimed passengers were left “standing in the rain not knowing what to do or where to go”.Reaghan Reilly tweeted: “It was my first experience of the sleeper train and it was definitely unforgettable.”She added: “An hour in and the overhead lights were on and off so many times I felt like a prisoner in an internment camp.” Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp?

The Rail, Maritime and Transport union (RMT) are planning to ballot staff on whether to take strike action over working conditions on the new trains.Last month the RMT’s regional organiser Gordon Martin said staff are suffering stress due to their extra workload on the new trains.Caledonian Sleeper managing director Ryan Flaherty said: “We are working to understand the cause of this problem and we apologise to all guests affected.”All guests who travelled on the service last night will, of course, receive a full refund.” read more

That’s why he is always fit.“But I already told him that he will miss one of the next games against Roma, Atalanta or Sampdoria.”Serie A, Gian Piero GasperiniGasperini reveals why he rejected Inter Manuel R. Medina – September 14, 2019 Atalanta manager, Gian Piero Gasperini, has revealed why he rejected Internazionale Milan’s job proposal over the summer transfer window.Ronaldo himself revealed that choosing power over precision paid dividends for him in his penalty-kick after Torino goalkeeper Salvador Ichazo nearly saved it.“I’m very happy but the main thing is doing my bit for the team,” said Ronaldo.“I hit it really hard and the keeper got a hand to it but it went in and that’s all that matters.“It was a tough game because the pitch wasn’t in great condition but in the end we managed to get the three points we deserved.”Juventus will next face AS Roma at the Allianz Stadium in Turin next Saturday.last_img read more


first_imgEmployees at refuse collection, street cleaning and recycling organisation Bristol Waste, who are members of the trade union Unite, have voted to accept a two-year pay deal.The agreed package, which will be backdated to November 2018, equates to a 6.2% pay increase over a two-year period. This means that the average Bristol Waste employee will receive a pay rise of around £1,400.The pay deal is the result of a campaign maintained by union activists between August 2018 and January 2019; the action sought to improve Bristol Waste’s original offer of a 3.5% pay increase over two years. Unite states that this original deal was rejected by its members because it fell below the rate of inflation.According to Unite, the original pay proposal was accompanied by employer-funded theatre tickets for staff to see Cinderella at the Bristol Hippodrome. The trade union believes this was to encourage employees to accept the initial deal.Bristol Waste, which employs 600 staff, is a wholly owned subsidiary of Bristol City Council. Unite has the largest trade union representation at the organisation.Ken Fish, regional officer at Unite, said: “A sustained campaign by [employees] turned a pantomime drama into a pay victory. The organising campaign at Bristol Waste helped [employees] secure an inflation beating pay increase worth around £1,400, almost double the [organisation’s] original pay offer.“The deal shows that when [employees] get organised, they can win in the workplace.”Bristol Waste was unavailable for comment at time of publication.last_img read more

first_imgDenise Favorule, The Knot’s national enterprise group’s executive vice president, cited lack of advertising support and consumers being unable to purchase the publications as reasons to switch strategies. With no subscription model in place for any of the print publications, there were difficulties in funding the amount of issues to satisfy the reader demand through advertising (due to high volume of requests and shipping prices). Favorule says, “It was either going to be a slow build in terms of charging more for the advertising, or we [could make] a decision to use The Nest as a custom publishing opportunity for our advertisers.” She says that they are in talks with several advertisers; one is looking at a 48 page issue that will be mailed to TheNest.com members.The print will be turned into a digital quarterly, and there will also be a Nest-branded section in The Knot’s quarterly offering. The Nest digital quarterly will be emailed to 500,000 TheNest.com members, and members of TheKnot.com and TheBump.com will receive emailed links as well. The Knot launched a Groupon-like initiative called Wedding Channel Deals in partnership with sister site, Wedding Channels last year. Favorule shared the Deals group began last year, but ramped up this January. Deals that did especially well in the first quarter included beauty and spa offerings. The Wedding Shop on TheKnot.com offers users wedding “tchotchkes”, such as matchbooks and almonds.Launched in August 2006, The Nest reached a controlled list of 400,000 with its debut issue. TheNest.com launched in January 2005; The Knot’s print magazine frequency was upped in 2010 from semi-annually to quarterly. The print publication is sold for $9.99 an issue and The Knot magazine app is available through Apple for $4.99. There’s also free The Knot and wedding dress apps for the iPhone. The Knot, whose brands include TheNest.com and TheBump.com, is converting the print version of The Nest to digital.The Nest magazine, which began as a website aimed at newly married couples and cohabitation, released its last print issue in late January. TheNest.com has a community of about one million members. The Nest magazine was originally under controlled circulation, but due to audience interest, it was announced in March 2010 that the quarterly publication would hit newsstands. The Nest was available for purchase on July 19, 2010 mainly though Barnes & Noble and Borders, as well as Target and Walmart.last_img read more


first_imgAn initial estimate of those who “influence” the content posted on Alt Wire falls somewhere around the 3,000 mark.Each article featured on Alt Wire shows how many times it’s been retweeted, and which influencers are sharing the selected content. Doody says that while it is likely articles from major sources such as The New York Times and The New Yorker will appear in Alt Wire, the majority of content shared will be born of the alternative press realm, from sites like Mother Jones and The Nation. Utne Reader, a magazine that highlights the best of independent and alternative presses, has launched Alt Wire, a socially curated digital magazine. Using the R88R platform by Sociative Inc., Utne Reader staff selected a group of twenty core “influencers” to help determine the articles that will appear in Alt Wire. Influencers include past “visionaries”, individuals who were featured in Utne Reader’s annual “Visionary” issue, as well as those recognized in Utne’s Independent Press Awards. After compiling a list of possible names, editorial staff honed a group of influencers prominent in media, environment, mind & body, arts & culture, politics and science & technology categories.After this group was assembled, Utne Reader worked with Sociative to create an algorithm that pulls in sources the chosen influencers are themselves influenced by, and others they influence (which translates to those retweeting or commenting on influencers’ postings on Twitter). This initial group is constantly fluctuating, according to Alt Wire web editor David Doody, as it reflects the cycle of content and conversation on the web, “Certain information is deemed important by the algorithm, because of how many times it’s being focused on by other people who have been named influencers, and this is how an influencer rises in the chain of things. The group keeps moving and growing; people will be added and will fall off.”center_img Alt Wire is intended as a complement to Utne Reader, its website, social media presence and corresponding blogs. “We don’t editorialize in our content. If we write about something, we’re attempting to shine the light on another alternative source,” says Doody, “It’s an extension of our mission to show what’s happening with the alternative press and to share stories that would otherwise be missed.”last_img read more

first_imgOpera launches Opera GX, a browser for gamers by Martin Brinkmann on June 11, 2019 in Opera – Last Update: June 11, 2019 – 20 commentsOpera launched a first version of Opera GX, a new browser made specifically for gamers and gaming, on June 11, 2019 during the E3 2019 event.Opera GX uses the desktop Opera web browser as its base which means that it features everything that is part of the Opera desktop browser.Opera GX is available for Windows only at this point in time and only as an early access version.  Opera plans to release a final version later this year. Interested users can download the web browser from the Opera website.Installation is identical to that of the regular Opera browser. Note that the browser is set up to submit telemetry to Opera by default; you can disable that during setup.The browser opens with a splash animation and a redesigned color scheme and new tab page.The page links to new and upcoming games and lists game deals next to that. Opera GX lists games for Windows, Playstation, Xbox, Mac and Linux by default.A click on the settings icon displays options to display deals for select platforms only, e.g. only for PC, and an option to hide both the new and interesting games listing, and the deals aggregator.Nintendo Switch and mobile game systems are not supported at the time of writing.The first public version of Opera GX comes with exclusive features. GX Control is by far the biggest feature that Opera’s team added to the gaming browser.GX Control introduces options to limit RAM and CPU usage in the browser. A click on the new GX Control icon in Opera’s side panel displays the options; both are disabled by default and can be enabled by toggling them in the interface.The RAM Limiter blocks Opera GX from exceeding the selected amount of RAM. Just select one of the available limits after enabling the option.A test on a 32 Gigabytes of RAM system had options to limit RAM usage to 8, 16, 24 and 32 Gigabytes of RAM. The RAM Limiter features a hard limit option that prevents Opera GX from ever exceeding the selected RAM limit.The built-in CPU Limiter works pretty much in the same way: enable it in the interface and set one of the available limits. The current version supports limiting CPU usage of the browser to 25%, 50%, or 75%.Opera Software believes that “games can run more smoothly” when using GX Control.Opera GX integrates with Twitch accounts. Twitch users may sign-in to their accounts to get Twitch notifications directly in the Opera GX web browser.The browser features several game-inspired themes, sounds, and color schemes that users may enable.Closing WordsOpera GX is a modified version of Opera with a RAM and CPU limiter, Twitch integration, and a selection of customization options catered towards gamers.While I applaud Opera for trying something new, I’m not sold on the idea that the browser will offer better performance than, say, the desktop Opera browser.If Opera Software tweaked certain parameters and settings, that would be something different but limiting RAM and CPU usage of the program that you use to play games seems kinda strange. I’d imagine that limiting other processes on the system would yield a better effect.Opera GX is available as a preview version only; things may change and Opera Software could very well work on adding more features and enhancements to the browser before final release.As of right now, it could appeal to gamers because of the themes and feeds that it provides. Gaming-wise however, it probably won’t offer any advantages over other browsers.Here is a link to the announcement on the Opera website.Now You: What do you think of Opera GX?SummaryArticle NameOpera launches Opera GX, a browser for gamersDescriptionOpera launched a first version of Opera GX, a new browser made specifically for gamers and gaming, on June 11, 2019 during the E3 2019 event.Author Martin BrinkmannPublisher Ghacks Technology NewsLogo Advertisementlast_img read more

The company offers ways for healthcare providers to optimize care, reduce cost, and increase productivity through the accelerated adoption of electronic health record (EHR). For example, its Document Imaging for Medical Records converts medical records to indexed electronic data records and delivers them directly to the health information management (HIM) or EHR system. This eliminates the need for manual data entry. EMC provides efficient, convenient and secure enrollment and authentication to patient portals, enhancing compliance and mitigating online data breaches. The RSA Secure Web Access for Patient and Provider Portals secures the exchange of protected health information by creating a centralized security service. From there, it can enroll new users, authenticate with the appropriate level of security, authorize access and create a centrally managed audit log. Also, archive imaging technology improves operational efficiency through DICOM federation and allows for universal viewing through the EHR. The company’s Atmos Vendor Neutral Archive provides transparency of applications from infrastructure making it possible to quickly change either. Through a strict adherence to IHE industry standards the Atmos VNA solution scales from the smallest imaging center to the largest Petabyte scale hospital network.

first_imgSource = Dr David Beirman Ph.D Global cruising gets set for Asian led growthGlobal cruising gets set for Asian led growthThe Global cruising industry has experienced unprecedented levels of global growth over the past few years. In 2015, 25 million travellers experienced a cruise. The product range in cruising extends from super cruises such as Ovation on the Seas which accommodate over 5,000 passengers to smaller niche adventure cruising product which can enable passengers to explore remote coastal destinations such as Patagonia, Antarctica, Papua New Guinea, the glacier coast of Alaska or the inlets of Australia’s Kimberley region.In Sydney, over 450 Australian and New Zealand travel professionals attended the Cruise 360 Conference held by CLIA (Cruise Lines International Association) the cruise industry’s global association. The conference was held on Friday, 16 September. The high level of interest, especially from travel agents is indicative of the fact that the cruise market from Australia and New Zealand has enjoyed a spectacular rate of growth over the past 10 years. Steve Odell, the Chairman of CLIA Australasia pointed out that in 2015 over 1.05 million Australians and 66,000 New Zealanders undertook a cruise. Market growth has exceeded 15% annually since 2005 and Australia has the highest proportion of travellers undertaking cruising of any country in the world.Globally, over 70% of cruise bookings are transacted via travel agents and the dominance of travel agents in managing cruise bookings is set to continue well into the future. Steve Odell observed that the variety and complexity of cruise product coupled with the fact that the needs of cruise passengers are very specific lends cruising to the personalised advice that travel agents can provide. CLIA globally has trained many thousands of travel agents thorough its cruise training programs. Cindy D’Aoust, Global President and CEO of CLIA addressed the conference and provided a global perspective on the cruise industry. She told the audience that while 49.5% of global cruise passengers in 2015 were Americans, the proportion of US based passengers was shrinking. Although US cruise passenger numbers continued to grow, the centre of gravity of cruise market growth was clearly shifting to the Asia-Pacific. She pointed out that the new centres of cruising growth would come from China, Japan, South Korea and SE Asia. The growing middle classes of Asia have discovered cruising and are taking to it in a big way. She predicted that in 10 years the Asian cruise market could exceed that of the United States.The growth of global cruising has led to an urgent need for infrastructure development, especially berthing and port facilities in a growing number of destinations. The conference venue, Sydney is no exception. Sydney is one of the world’s most popular cruising destinations and embarkation points and its limited berthing infrastructure is widely seen by the Australian cruise industry as a barrier to growth. This article will be the first of two I will write on the cruise industry as a result of the conference. The clear message for travel industry professionals globally is that cruising is set for very positive growth. CLIA is certainly doing an outstanding job in providing industry professionals with the tools to effectively leverage from that growth.Ovation on the Seas, One of the world’s great super cruiserslast_img read more


first_imgResearchers from the University of Cyprus in collaboration with three American universities have developed a new mathematical model, which sheds light on the benefits of metronomic chemotherapy on different types of cancer cells.The model was developed by assistant professor Triantafyllos Stylianopoulos together with researchers from the Massachusetts General Hospital, the Medical School University of Harvard and the University of Bangladesh, USA.Metronomic chemotherapy, whereby lower amounts of medication are given to patients at more frequent intervals, targets the cells lining the blood vessels supplying tumour cells.Oral chemotherapy is administered at the maximum dose which does not cause toxic problems, with a two to three-week break between treatments.“The results of the study show that the use of this new alternative chemotherapy increases the amount of chemicals which reach the cancerous tumours, resulting in more cancer cells being killed and improved efficacy of the treatment,” the University of Cyprus said.Studies by Stylianopoulos and his team at the University of Cyprus cancer biophysics laboratory have also shown that chemotherapy administered to breast cancer tumours in animals become more efficient when anti-fibrotic drugs are used.“These results are of particular importance because they show that the use of commercial anti-fibrotic drugs facilitates the action of chemotherapy or nano-therapy and leads to a better therapeutic effect paving the way for their use in clinical applications”, the university’s report said.The laboratory was founded in 2014 by Stylianopoulos with some €2m, almost exclusively from the European Research Council and the European Commission.The objective of the laboratory is to find new strategies for dealing with cancer and metastasis, combining knowledge and techniques in engineering and biology.You May LikePopularEverythingColorado Mom Adopted Two Children, Months Later She Learned Who They Really ArePopularEverythingUndoSecurity SaversWindows Users Advised To Do This TodaySecurity SaversUndoPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GamePlay this for 1 minute and see why everyone is addictedPlarium I Vikings: Free Online GameUndo Concern over falling tourism numbersUndoTurkish Cypriot actions in Varosha ‘a clear violation’ of UN resolutions, Nicosia saysUndoPensioner dies after crash on Paphos-Polis roadUndoby Taboolaby Taboolalast_img read more
