Burqa banned in Ravanas Lanka why not in Rams Ayodhya Sena

first_imgMumbai: The Shiv Sena Wednesday welcomed Sri Lankan government’s decision to ban burqa and masks on grounds of national security and asked the Narendra Modi-led regime to follow suit. In an editorial in party mouthpiece Saamana, the Sena asked Prime Minister Narendra Modi to follow Sri Lankan President Maithripala Sirisenas footsteps and ban burqas and other face-covering garments in India considering the threat it poses to the nations security.

If this can happen in Ravana’s Lanka, when will it happen in Ram’s Ayodhya,” it said. The editorial said even France, New Zealand, Australia and England have banned burqa. “Why is India lagging behind,” it asked. The editorial said this task (of banning burqa) is as gutsy as the surgical strikes. “Face masks can prove detrimental in identifying people and the ban was necessary under emergency situation. The Sri Lankan president has shown courage. Modi should follow suit,” the editorial said. Meanwhile, AIMIM leader Asaduddin Owaisi hit out at the Sena saying that the fight against terrorism does not entail the dress, but the mindset.last_img read more

Spring Convocation to feature first grads from new PhD and Masters programs

During Spring Convocation ceremonies, June 7 to 10, Brock University will celebrate Master’s and PhD students for their academic and research excellence.A total of 411 graduate degrees — 16 PhD, 395 Master’s — will be conferred.Justin Maltese, a MSc student in Computer Science, will receive the prestigious Governor General’s Gold Medal for achieving the highest academic standing at the graduate level. Maltese, of Hamilton, attained a 98.5 average.Spring Convocation will mark the first graduates from the PhD program in Interdisciplinary Humanities and from the Master’s program in Sustainability Science and Society.Both programs have been at the forefront of the University’s directions to build transdisciplinary studies and research activities.Brock established the Interdisciplinary Humanities doctoral program in 2011. The program brings together faculty and students from different disciplines across the University to collaborate on research questions from a variety of perspectives.The graduate program in Sustainability Science and Society (SSAS) was launched in 2014. The program provides students an opportunity to study the social, economic, political, and biophysical challenges and to consider new ways of thinking about environmental sustainability.“It’s always a landmark event for newer programs to celebrate the convocation of their first students,” says Mike Plyley, Dean of the Faculty of Graduate Studies. “These students are like flagbearers. They signify a program’s wider impact as its students move forward to contribute their knowledge, creativity and skills in their field or through other academic and research pursuits.”This convocation also holds special significance for Plyley as he completes his term as Dean on June 30.“Convocation days are one of the best days on the job for a Dean,” Plyley says. “I’ve had the privilege to congratulate thousands of graduate students over the past five years. Watching our students cross the stage to accept their master’s or doctoral degrees provides you with a strong indication of the force of their potential in a world that will look to them to make society stronger and better. For a Dean, those are the times when you say to yourself that it just doesn’t get any better than this.”2016 Convocation awards to Brock graduate studentsGovernor General’s Gold Medal:Justin Maltese, Computer ScienceJack M.

Baird ousted from higher education board

first_img OLYMPIA — Gov. Jay Inslee has decided to replace half of the Washington Student Achievement Council, surprising state lawmakers and raising questions about the direction of a newly formed board charged with writing a road map for higher education.“It’s a substantial disappointment to have worked so hard, to have made some very positive contributions and to be moving toward some very constructive recommendations, and then to have that stopped in mideffort,” said former U.S. Rep. Brian Baird, the ousted chairman. “It’s frustrating.”Baird, who served with Inslee in Congress for 12 years, and the three other members being replaced were appointed by former Gov. Chris Gregoire last summer and were moving through the confirmation process. They found out about Inslee’s decision just hours before they were scheduled to get a vote in the Senate Higher Education Committee.“Of course the governor has a right to choose whoever he wants,” said state Sen. David Frockt, a Seattle Democrat who sits on that committee. “But yes, I was surprised.”Inslee spokesman David Postman downplayed the move, saying the governor’s decision was “not a judgment on the people who have served or their ideas about higher education.” Former U.S. Representative Brian Baird has been ousted from the Washington Student Achievement Council, of which he was chairman, by Gov. Jay Inslee.last_img read more

Why Portfolio Folded And What It Means for Business Magazines

first_imgFortune316.39429.42-26.3 Conde Nast Portfolio66.05168.98-60.9 The consumer magazine world was rocked yesterday with the news that Condé Nast shut down its struggling business magazine Portfolio and will close Portfolio.com.According to president and CEO Charles H. Townsend, the “pressures and realities of the continuous deep economic slump” lowered Portfolio’s revenue projections below the level necessary for the company to continue publishing it. “Portfolio was an ambitious and innovative magazine and Web site, and were proud to publish them,” Townsend said in a statement. “The challenges facing this launch however proved too great … It is unfortunate we were unable to give Portfolio the time needed to fully mature.” Fast Company69.0397.00-28.8 SmartMoney100.94124.51-18.9 Forbes428.7504.14-15.0 BusinessWeek258.79430.04-39.8 Money109.09146.98-25.8 Entrepreneur269.49303.32-11.2 Kiplinger’s66.76116.97-42.9 Economist484.96596.99-18.8 AD PAGESQ1 2009Q1 2008% CHNG Inc.89.89168.63-46.7 Fortune Small Business68.5974.99-8.5 Harvard Business Review81.8495.04-13.9 “Our timing proved to be terrible in terms of building a big ad franchise from scratch,” group publisher David Carey told the Associated Press. “We saw where we are and where we want to be in 18 months. The gap between those two points was becoming bigger.”As a result of the closure, more than 85 employees will be let go, including editor-in-chief Joanne Lipman and publisher William Li. Li told the New York Observer Portfolio “changed business journalism. The whole idea of writing breathlessly glowing profiles of CEO[s], we didn’t play that game … I’m proud of the fact that in our first year we won a National Magazine award.”Billed as a business publication with big, bold articles and dynamic visuals, Condé Nast reportedly spent more than $100 million to launch Portfolio in April 2007. The magazine watched ad pages plummet 60.9 percent during the first quarter, according to Publishers Information Bureau figures.“Portfolio was the most impressive magazine launch I’ve observed in my 30 years following the magazine industry, which included two launches of my own,” DeSilva + Phillips managing partner Reed Phillips told FOLIO:. “David Carey and his team did all of the right things—including getting Condé Nast to support the magazine—the same magazine company that stayed with Vanity Fair until they got the formula right. But, no one could have predicted the wallop that hit the magazine industry, and financial books in particular, in the past seven months.”Understandably, the business/finance magazine sector overall has suffered dramatic declines through the first quarter. The top decliner was Mansueto Ventures’ Inc., which saw ad pages plummet 46.7 percent during the period. Kiplingers’ ad pages plunged 42.9 percent while BusinessWeek saw pages decline 39.8 percent.‘A Lot of Interest in Business Magazines Right Now’Despite category-wide losses, a number of publishers are confident there is still great consumer demand of business magazines.“There’s not a lot of visibility in the marketplace right now, but we expect the sector to see an improvement in advertising when the economy takes a definitive turn for the better,” Harvard Business Review publisher Henry Boye told FOLIO:. “From a demand side, there’s a lot of interest in business and the economy right now.”BusinessWeek president Keith Fox agrees. “We have seen double-digit growth to our Web site and our circulation statement remains strong,” Fox said. “I believe it is the business category that will help to shape the future of business—more and more people are turning to BusinessWeek for unbiased insights and forward-looking perspective to help move their business, careers and investments forward.”Bad Business SOURCE: PIBlast_img read more

Spoiler Alert Arya Stark to kill Cersei Lannister in the final GoT

first_imgGame of Thrones 8 episode 3TwitterGame of Thrones season 8 episode 3 “The Long Night” showed that Arya Stark is one fearless assassin who can kill anyone if she sets her mind and heart to it. After the battle at Winterfell, fans are now wondering whether she will go on a hunt to kill Cersei Lannister or would she stay in the North and try to bring everything back to order.Arya Stark has come a long way in the Game of Thrones. The youngest Stark daughter always wanted to be a fighter and her father’s death in season one made her walk on such a troubled path that she actually became a ruthless assassin. After her father’s death, Arya made a list of all those people whom she wanted to kill. So far, she has killed off several but Cersei Lannister is on the top of her list and she will be definitely headed for the King’s Landing to kill her.Back in season 3, Melisandre and Arya Stark met for the first time. During their short meeting, Melisandre told Arya: “I see a darkness in you. And in that darkness, eyes staring back at me. Brown eyes, blue eyes, green eyes. Eyes sealed shut forever. We will meet again.”So far, Melisandre’s prediction has come true. Arya did kill people with brown eyes and after killing Night King, she reached halfway through Melisandre’s prediction. As we all know, Cersei has brown eyes and Arya will attempt to kill Cersei as well.Furthermore, Arya Stark can become anyone as she holds the power to become a faceless man. Over the last couple of years, this fan-favorite character wore several faces and killed all those who betrayed her family members. Arya Stark will continue her training in Bravos.Facebook/Game of ThronesIn the upcoming episodes, Cersei Lannister will be well surrounded by her own armies, warriors of Golden company, and Euron Greyjoy’s Iron Fleet. It would actually be very difficult for Arya to walk towards Cersei and kill her. At the same time, Cersei is not a fighter and we won’t be seeing her in the battleground. If it was possible, then she was an easy target for Arya.Given this case, Arya has to become a faceless man if she wishes to kill Cersei Lannister. There are several faces which she can wear. For instance, if Cersei is not aware of Peter Baelish’s death, then Arya can become Littlefinger and walk freely in the King’s Landing and can easily murder the woman who once let her son, Joffrey, kill Ned Stark — her father.last_img read more

McPixel becomes first Steam Greenlight title

first_imgOne of the highest honors in the independent gaming community has been bestowed to the pixilated puzzle game McPixel — it has been selected as the very first entry in the Steam Greenlight program. The initiative is aimed at giving small developers a chance to get their game on the wildly popular digital distribution platform owned by Valve.McPixel is a game in which players find themselves in various predicaments and then must use a number of in-game tools to solve puzzles. If they don’t find a way out of the situation, stuff blows up. It’s as simple as that. The game is available for $4.99 on Steam.This is the era of the independent developer. Thanks largely to the boom in smartphone apps, where there is a frictionless way to get content available to millions of users, gamers are able to access all kinds of unique and captivating games that would never have been able to see the light of day just five or six years ago.It isn’t just in the mobile space, though. Thanks to downloadable platforms gaining more traction on every console and the PC, independent titles are “the new black,” as they say. Valve says it has received hundreds of game submissions, and more are pouring in every day.Earlier this month, Valve announced 10 titles that would be launched on Steam as a result of the program. In addition to McPixel, titles like Black Mesa, Cry of Fear, Project Zomboid, Heroes & Generals, Towns, Dream, and No More Room in Hell are coming out soon.via Steamlast_img read more

Cancun restaurants affected by price increase of electricity

first_imgCancun, Q.R. — Rising electricity rates are affecting restaurants as well as hotels, with some saying their electricity bills have doubled.The restaurateurs and the Federal Consumer Protection Agency (Profeco) have had a meeting to address the issue of the rise in CFE rates. They say their arguments will be heard by the Commission Federal Electricity (CFE) next week.Xavier de Jesús Rosado Martínez, delegate of Profeco, explained that the meeting will be with Humberto Saldaña Rodríguez, CFE distribution manager of Yucatán Peninsula, although the body that will resolve the case is the Energy Regulatory Commission (CRE).“The restaurants have raised the problem about the increase that is at least 30 percent and we understand the affectation,” he said adding, “During our last meeting, we explained that the CRE will be the one to explain how and why the rates increased and if the rates are correct. It will be an arduous task.”Juan Pablo Aguirre, president of the National Chamber of Restaurants mentioned that some members are even reluctant to pay for the service because they consider it unfair with some receiving bills that are 6,000 peso more.“We are more than 270 affiliates in Cancun and we generate 33,000 direct jobs, however, we are being affected by the rise in electricity prices so we are asking the CRE to give us an explanation of why the rise since the prices are unacceptable,” added Rosado Martínez.Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Brain Changes Seen in Youth Football Players without Concussion

first_imgNews | Neuro Imaging | October 28, 2016 Brain Changes Seen in Youth Football Players without Concussion Comparison of pre- and post-season MRI scans reveal changes in the flow of water in the brain in players not displaying signs of concussion MR images of left inferior fronto-occipital fasciculus (top) before and (middle) after the playing season, and (bottom) the overlay. In the overlay (bottom), the red region is after the season and the blue region is before the season. Image courtesy of the Radiological Society of North America.October 28, 2016 — Researchers have found measurable brain changes in children after a single season of playing youth football, even without a concussion diagnosis, according to a new study published online in the journal Radiology.According to USA Football, there are approximately 3 million young athletes participating in organized tackle football across the country. Numerous reports have emerged in recent years about the possible risks of brain injury while playing youth sports and the effects it may have on developing brains. However, most of the research has looked at changes in the brain as a result of concussion.“Most investigators believe that concussions are bad for the brain, but what about the hundreds of head impacts during a season of football that don’t lead to a clinically diagnosed concussion? We wanted to see if cumulative sub-concussive head impacts have any effects on the developing brain,” said the study’s lead author, Christopher T. Whitlow, M.D., Ph.D., MHA, associate professor and chief of neuroradiology at Wake Forest School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C.The research team studied 25 male youth football players between the ages of 8 and 13. Head impact data were recorded using the Head Impact Telemetry System (HITs), which has been used in other studies of high school and collegiate football to assess the frequency and severity of helmet impacts. In this study, HITs data were analyzed to determine the risk weighted cumulative exposure associated with a single season of play.The study participants underwent pre- and post-season evaluation with multimodal neuroimaging, including diffusion tensor imaging (DTI) of the brain. DTI is an advanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technique, which identifies microstructural changes in the brain’s white matter. In addition, all games and practices were video recorded and reviewed to confirm the accuracy of the impacts.The brain’s white matter is composed of millions of nerve fibers called axons that act like communication cables connecting various regions of the brain. Diffusion tensor imaging produces a measurement, called fractional anisotropy (FA), of the movement of water molecules in the brain and along axons. In healthy white matter, the direction of water movement is fairly uniform and measures high in FA. When water movement is more random, FA values decrease, which has been associated with brain abnormalities in some studies.The results showed a significant relationship between head impacts and decreased FA in specific white matter tracts and tract terminals, where white and gray matters meet.“We found that these young players who experienced more cumulative head impact exposure had more changes in brain white matter, specifically decreased FA, in specific parts of the brain,” Whitlow said. “These decreases in FA caught our attention, because similar changes in FA have been reported in the setting of mild TBI [traumatic brain injury].”It is important to note that none of the players had any signs or symptoms of concussion.“We do not know if there are important functional changes related to these findings, or if these effects will be associated with any negative long-term outcomes,” Whitlow said. “Football is a physical sport, and players may have many physical changes after a season of play that completely resolve. These changes in the brain may also simply resolve with little consequence. However, more research is needed to understand the meaning of these changes to the long-term health of our youngest athletes.”For more information: www.pubs.rsna.org/journal/radiology FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 News | Brachytherapy Systems | August 14, 2019 Efficacy of Isoray’s Cesium Blu Showcased in Recent Studies August 14, 2019 — Isoray announced a trio of studies recently reported at scientific meetings and published in medica read more Image courtesy of Imago Systems News | Artificial Intelligence | August 13, 2019 Artificial Intelligence Could Yield More Accurate Breast Cancer Diagnoses University of California Los Angeles (UCLA) researchers have developed an artificial intelligence (AI) system that… read more Related Content News | Pediatric Imaging | August 14, 2019 Ultrasound Guidance Improves First-attempt Success in IV Access in Children August 14, 2019 – Children’s veins read more Technology | Interventional Radiology | August 16, 2019 Profound Medical Receives U.S. FDA 510(k) Clearance for Tulsa-Pro Profound Medical Corp. announced it has received 510(k) clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to… read more News | Radiation Therapy | August 15, 2019 First Patient Enrolled in World’s Largest Brain Cancer Clinical Trial Henry Ford Cancer Institute is first-in-the-world to enroll a glioblastoma patient in the GBM AGILE Trial (Adaptive… read more center_img Images of regions of interest (colored lines) in the white matter skeleton representation.

first_img Sponsored Stories All worked for DINA, Pinochet’s secret police agency, and targeted Soria because they were convinced he had been helping Communists in Chile, the judge said in the National Court indictment released Thursday.The American named is Michael Townley, who served five years in a U.S. prison for complicity in the 1976 assassination in Washington of former Chilean Ambassador Orlando Letelier and his assistant. Townley was in the U.S. Witness Protection Program as recently as 2010.The Chileans indicted included former DINA director Manuel Contreras, who is imprisoned in Chile for his role during the Pinochet dictatorship.Soria was stopped as he drove a U.N.-issued car and taken to a house in the Chilean capital, Santiago, owned by Townley where the Spaniard was severely beaten and strangled to death, the indictment said.Then his killers injected Chilean Pisco brandy into Soria’s body, put him inside the car he was driving when stopped and pushed it into a canal to make it appear he had been the victim of a drunken driving accident, the indictment said.The seven were also charged with genocide because the judge determined that the killing of Soria and other crimes he did not detail in the indictment were part of the systemic repression imposed by Pinochet from 1973 to 1990. Several of the Chileans were convicted in 1993 of covering up the killing of Soria. While Contreras is jailed for other crimes linked to Pinochet, the remaining five have served their sentences and are living in freedom in Chile, said Alfonso Insunza, a Chilean lawyer representing Soria’s family.Ruz issued requests to Chile and the U.S. for the extradition of the suspects. Spain’s National Court could not provide information on whether the suspects have lawyers.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press. All rights reserved.

The suspects were never tried for murder or torture in Chile because they were covered by an amnesty law put in place two years after Soria’s murder.
