Shows what years of RSS training does to mind of weak man

first_imgNew Delhi: Congress leader Rahul Gandhi on Saturday termed as despicable Haryana Chief Minister Manohar Lal Khattar’s “brides from Kashmir” remark, claiming that his comments show what years of RSS training does to the mind of a “weak, insecure and pathetic man”. His reaction came after Khattar on Friday courted a controversy with his remarks that some people of Haryana are saying that they “can now get brides from Kashmir”, apparently in a reference to the scrapping of the special status for Jammu and Kashmir under Article 370 of the Constitution. Also Read – Uddhav bats for ‘Sena CM’ “Haryana CM, Khattar’s comment on Kashmiri women is despicable and shows what years of RSS training does to the mind of a weak, insecure and pathetic man. Women are not assets to be owned by men,” Gandhi said in a tweet. Speaking at an event in Fatehabad, Khattar had said, “There can be problems if the number of girls is lesser than boys. Our (O P) Dhankarji had said that they (brides) will have to be brought from Bihar. Now some people say, Kashmir is open, they (brides) will be brought from there. But jokes apart, the question is if (sex) ratio is right, then there will be a right balance in society.”last_img read more

Transcontinental sells building to San Francisco Chronicle publisher Hearst

MONTREAL — TC Transcontinental has agreed to sell the building that housed its former printing operations in Fremont, Calif., for US$75 million, with proceeds to be used to reduce the company’s indebtedness.The buyer is Hearst Corp., which took over printing operations at the plant in April 2018 as the two companies dissolved a multi-year outsourcing agreement in which Transcontinental printed the San Francisco Chronicle for the media company.TC Transcontinental began printing the Chronicle starting in 2009 under an agreement that was to run for 15 years.However, the companies amended the agreement in 2012 to reflect a decline in print newspaper circulation and Transcontinental received US$200 million in compensation from Hearst.In 2017, Hearst decided to bring printing of the Chronicle in-house as of April 2018.Transcontinental says the pending sale of the building to Hearst is expected to close in the fourth quarter of its 2019 financial year.The Montreal-based company releases results for its third quarter on Thursday.

Ordering deadly drugs from China is easy

SHANGHAI – A few thousand dollars, a few minutes and a decent internet connection are all it takes to source carfentanil online from multiple Chinese vendors.Two Associated Press reporters, working independently, documented multiple offers from the companies listed below to export carfentanil, a substance so toxic it has been researched as a chemical weapon and described as a terrorist threat.These are not your typical drug barons. Many come off as solicitous business owners, starting emails with “Hi, dear,” and writing scrupulous follow-up notes to drum up sales. They sent price lists and photos of their merchandise, and promoted their wares, in English, on major business-to-business websites.Carfentanil — whose median October price from the companies below was $3,700 per kilogram (2.2 pounds) —is banned from general use in the United States, where it is suspected in hundreds of overdoses . Fentanyl, acetylfentanyl and alpha-PVP are controlled substances in both China and the U.S. Many vendors also bragged openly about their ability to circumvent customs authorities around the world.The companies’ cheery let’s-do-business attitude changed when the AP followed up with questions about the legality of the sales.The AP did not actually order any of these products, nor test to see if they were genuine.___BENTON PHARMACY CO.For sale: Carfentanil, fentanyl, to France, U.K., Europe generally.The pitch: “We have fentanyl, good quality,”a saleswoman called Caroline said in an email, adding that she’d just gotten a two kilogram order.Later, Caroline told the AP she was “shocked” to hear the AP had evidence of illicit substances on offer. “Our company has always respected China’s relevant business regulations, our company has never sold the products you mentioned.”___WILLIAMS PHARMACYFor sale: Carfentanil, fentanyl. No destination specified.The pitch: “Contraband will be professionally packaged and parcel will be enhanced with appropriate stealth measures,” Williams promised in an email.Asked for comment by the AP, Williams Pharmacy responded with unpublishable invective, offering no further explanation.___APEX SPECIAL CHEMICAL MEDICINE TRADE CO.For sale: Carfentanil, fentanyl. No destination specified.The company pulled its product listings from the Korean business-to-business platform EC21.com after being contacted by the AP, but another company called Okkijeyhhd Plc registered with EC21 on Oct. 23. It had the same contact email as Apex and an identical listing for carfentanil. Requests for comment were not returned.“Carfentanil is 10000 times more potent than m.o.r.p.h.i.n.e and 5000 times more potent than pharmaceutical grade (100% pure) h.e.r.o.i.n according to the illicit drug conversion table that issued by China Food and Drug Administration,” the company said in its product listings.At least five other vendors, most of which registered on EC21 in October, shared a non-functional phone number with Okkijeyhhd: Ujehhdfb Plc, Theydhhhne Plc, Okegdtsgdbfn Plc, Jhdncbvn Intl and Lkdheeed Plc, which advertised a cornucopia of misspelled drugs for sale.___SHIYAN FURUIYANG BIOLOGICAL TECHNOLOGY CO.For sale: Carfentanil, fentanyl, acetylfentanyl, alpha-PVP to U.S.The pitch: Clients “say fentanyl is the most fantastic,” a saleswoman called Susie said by email.Contacted later by the AP on Skype, another saleswoman, Cathy, said, “You did such a great job to get evidence, you can just report it.” Then she quickly changed her profile from a photo of a studious-looking Chinese woman holding a child to a dish of snow-white powder.___JILIN TELY IMPORT AND EXPORT CO.For sale: Carfentanil to Canada, Australia.After being named in AP’s Oct. 7 article, Jilin’s website vanished and the company said it had never actually produced carfentanil.___HEBEI YAQIANG BIOLOGICAL TECHNOLOGY CO.For sale: Carfentanil, acetylfentanyl, fentanyl to U.S, Belgium, France.The pitch: “We usually ship with hiding in other products and all reached,” the company said by email.Contacted by the AP on a Skype chat, a woman named Lisa insisted Hebei Yaqiang only sells legal products: “if u want to buy. we can provide but if you have other purpose. am sorry. i am busy.”___YUNTU CHEMICAL CO.For sale: Carfentanil, acetylfentanyl to U.S., Canada.A Yuntu representative hung up the phone when contacted by the AP and did not reply to emails seeking comment. Soon after, the company’s website vanished. Reached later on Skype, a company representative who called herself Mary declined to offer carfentanil again.___IAMCOR BIOTECH CO.For sale: Carfentanil, fentanyl to U.S., CanadaThe pitch: “Dear, we use our special way to send you. We ensure you can get it,” a woman who identified herself as Megan said in an emailTold later by AP that it had evidence of offers for illicit sales, she replied, “Really? How come I don’t know about this?” Then she stopped answering questions.___HUNAN PROVINCE WAYNICK BIOLOGICAL TECHNOLOGY CO.For sale: Carfentanil, acetylfentanyl, fentanyl to U.S.Contacted by the AP, Waynick said it listed these products to “attract clients” but doesn’t actually sell them. “The real products are substitutes,” the company said in an email. “The substitutes are all legal products in China. You can do any investigation.”___SHANGHAI KAIWODUN BIOCHEMICAL CO.For sale: Carfentanil, acetylfentanyl to U.S.The company did not respond to the AP’s requests for comment.___SHANXI JINWEI TECHNOLOGY CO.For sale: Carfentanil, fentanyl, acetylfentanyl, alpha-PVP, to U.S., Belgium, Germany, Europe generally.The company did not respond to requests for comment from the AP.___SHANGHAI GOLDEN TIME BIOLOGICAL TECHNOLOGY CO.For sale: Carfentanil to U.K.The company didn’t respond to AP requests for comment.___HEBEI MORUI CHEMICAL CO.For sale: Carfentanil, fentanyl, acetylfentanyl, a-PVP to U.S., Canada, France, Belgium.Morui denied offering the products.___SHANGHAI HONG TAI CHEMICAL CO.For sale: Carfentanil, fentanyl to U.S., France, Europe generally.The company denied making the offers. “China does not produce illegal products,” a representative said by email.___SHANGHAI BOHUA FINE CHEMICAL CO.For sale: Carfentanil to Germany, France, U.K.Asked by the AP about offers to sell carfentanil, the company replied in an email, “I do not know what you’re talking about.”___Satter reported from Paris.

South Africa set to compete against Ireland for World Cup

first_imgIRELAND’S STRONGEST OPPONENTS for the right to host the 2023 Rugby World Cup may be South Africa.The 1995 hosts have long been known to hold an interest in welcoming world rugby’s showpiece event to their shores once again, particularly as the last time was such a huge success.Ireland’s intention to make a proposal to the IRB looks increasingly probable, with the Irish cabinet having approved the plans being championed by Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Leo Varadkar.The IRB will not make a decision on the host nation for the 2023 World Cup until 2017, but that hasn’t stopped several nations from promoting their virtues at this early stage. Apart from Ireland and South Africa, there is understood to be interest in both France and the US.Oregan Hoskins, the President of the South African Rugby Union, has told the Irish Examiner that he is confident of success in his nation’s bid to host the tournament.From a South African perspective there is great interest in terms of wanting to bid for that process in 2023. We have been trying to get the World Cup in South Africa a number of times (after failed bids for the 2011, 2015 and 2019 tournaments) so hopefully this time we will be lucky.“From a staff point of view 2014 has been mentioned as the optimum time in terms of when the wheels will start turning to get that process off the ground. It will be interesting to see how many countries put up their hands.“It is fantastic we have a healthy interest in it. It shows how important the product is, as the Rugby World Cup is the third most commercially successful brand. We saw in 1995 the effect it had on society, and I was lucky enough to be a part of the World Cup in 2010 and attended a number of the games.“It will be of huge benefit to any country that is given the 2023 World Cup.”Analysis: Ireland must cut out the defensive failings against All BlacksVIDEO: Here’s how Fiji set the world record for yellow cardslast_img read more


Recycled Motor Oil Uses 89 Less Energy To Produce

first_imgWe don’t normally think of automotive oil as being green, but Eco Ultra may just change that perception.The oil is made from used automotive, industrial, heavy duty, and railroad engine oil, which is then refined and blended with various additives to make a lubricant that meets all current standards and requirements. It’s made by Universal Lubricants in a re-refinery in Wichita, Kansas, one of only four such facilities in the United States.AdChoices广告“It uses 89 percent less energy and reduces greenhouse gas emissions by 36 percent in the production of its recycled lubricants versus similar products produced through traditional oil refineries,” explained Universal. “We help preserve the environment by reusing this valuable resource and help make the U.S. less dependent on foreign oil.”Eco-Ultra is available in a wide range of oils, from traditional synthetic blends to tractor and hydraulic oil.Via Inhabitatlast_img read more


Port of Vancouver narrows CEO search to three finalists

first_imgThe Port of Vancouver has narrowed its search for a permanent CEO to three final candidates, including the acting chief executive.Edward Galligan, Arthur Scheunemann and Julianna Marler will interview with a panel of stakeholders from the port and the community before attending an open house, 5:30 to 7:30 p.m., Jan. 19 at the port’s offices, 3103 N.W. Lower River Road.Each candidate’s résumé includes experience in the private and public sectors.Galligan, whose career includes two decades in telecommunications, currently leads the Port of Olympia. His experience includes 15 years at the Port of Portland.Scheunemann was most recently a consultant and an executive with Northwest Container Services, a provider of marine logistics services. He is the former president and CEO of the Economic Development Council of Seattle & King County and served in management at the state Department of Agriculture.Marler has acted as interim CEO since the departure of Todd Coleman last May. She joined the Port of Vancouver in 2008 and rose to chief financial officer in 2012. Her work experience includes nine years with the city of Vancouver.“Her diverse professional background includes logistics, sales, procurement and contracts, and leadership in finance and administration,” the port said.The three candidates beat out a field of nearly 80 applicants, port officials said. Candidates were selected with some outside help after port officials — with urging from a group of citizens — voted in October to bring in a third party to aid the hiring process.The port contracted Larry Boone, of Seattle-based Jones Strategic, to help assess candidates. Port spokesperson Abbi Russell said Boone sat in on interviews for the final eight candidates and provided feedback to the staff committee in charge of hiring.last_img read more

Father of baby whose mother died in crash vies to become legal

first_imgPLANO, Texas (WSVN) — The father of a baby born after her mother died in a deadly crash in Texas has been stuck in limbo, unable to take his baby home due to complicated legal matters. Right now, she doesn’t even have a name on her birth certificate. But now he is one step closer to becoming the child’s legal guardian.According to Fox 4, James Gardner and his baby girl headed home from the hospital on Wednesday. Gardner says he’s ready for his new life with his daughter, who’s only known as “November BG (baby girl)” on her birth certificate.“She’s doing great,” said Gardner. “And she’s beautiful. Oh, she’s beautiful. Sorry, I gotta take a deep breath.”Gardner is planning to name his baby girl “Hadley,” a name chosen by his late fiancée, Heather Trimble, who was eight months pregnant when she was in a horrific car crash earlier this month. Doctors delivered the baby early, but Trimble passed away from her injuries shortly afterward.“That’s one of my largest regrets for her is that she couldn’t even see Hadley before she went,” Gardner said.Trimble was still legally married to someone else before she died, but she left him three years ago, Fox 4 reported. Because of this, Gardner has limited rights, which also means he cannot yet name his baby.A family law attorney not involved in this paternity case, Hunter Lewis, said the marriage complicates this situation. “Because she was married to him at the time of the birth of the child, the actual father, legally speaking, is a presumed father — which is her husband,” Lewis explained.However, Gardner said he hired an attorney of his own to help him through the legal issues. He said Trimble’s estranged husband has been cooperative, granting him power of attorney to allow a DNA test and for Gardner to take the child home from the hospital.An emergency hearing is set for Friday. Once parentage is resolved, Gardner will be able to change the birth certificate to give Hadley her name.Copyright 2019 Sunbeam Television Corp. All rights reserved.

This MIT Robot Learned to Play Jenga Through Vision and Touch

first_img Need a new player for game night? MIT engineers have developed a robot that combines both vision and touch to learn Jenga, a game in which blocks must be removed from a tower and then placed on top without collapsing the tower.The robot is equipped with a soft-pronged gripper, a force-sensing cuff, and external camera, all of which it uses to see and feel the tower and its individual blocks, MIT said in a press release.The Jenga-playing robot, details of which are described in an article published today in the journal Science Robotics, demonstrates the ability to quickly learn the best way to carry out a task, not just from visual cues but also from tactile, physical interactions, according to Alberto Rodriguez, the Walter Henry Gale Career Development Assistant Professor in the Department of Engineering at MIT.AdChoices广告It’s an ability that’s been tricky to attain in previous systems.“Unlike in more purely cognitive tasks or games such as chess or Go, playing the game of Jenga also requires mastery of physical skills such as probing, pushing, pulling, placing, and aligning pieces. It requires interactive perception and manipulation, where you have to go and touch the tower to learn how and when to move blocks,” Rodriguez said. “This is very difficult to simulate, so the robot has to learn in the real world, by interacting with the real Jenga tower. The key challenge is to learn from a relatively small number of experiments by exploiting common sense about objects and physics.”When the robot carefully pushes against a block, a computer takes in visual and tactile feedback from its camera and cuff, and compares these measurements to moves that the robot previously made. It also considers the outcomes of those moves — specifically, whether a block, in a certain configuration and pushed with a certain amount of force, was successfully extracted or not. In real-time, the robot then “learns” whether to keep pushing or move to a new block, in order to keep the tower from falling.The robot is not quite ready to take on experienced Jenga players (it’s not able to determine strategic blocks that can sabotage the tower’s strength for upcoming turns), but the tactile learning system the MIT researchers have developed can be used for applications beyond the game.The system can be especially useful in tasks that need careful physical interaction, such as assembling consumer products.“In a cellphone assembly line, in almost every single step, the feeling of a snap-fit, or a threaded screw, is coming from force and touch rather than vision,” Rodriguez said. “Learning models for those actions is prime real-estate for this kind of technology.”More on Geek.com:Sophia Robot Now Has a Cute Little Sister That Can Teach Kids to CodeThis Robot Recreated the Walk of 290-Million-Year-Old AnimalFuturistic Hotel Fires Most of Its Robotic Staff Get Used to ‘Fortnite’s’ Powerful Mech SuitsRobots to Compete in Underground Challenge in Mining Tunnels Stay on targetlast_img read more

This was a hot topic at the American Association of Physicists in Medicine (AAPM) 2019 meeting in July.  August 18, 2016 — Hitachi Asia Ltd. and Hitachi Ltd. announced that Hitachi Asia has received an order for a proton beam therapy (PBT) system from the National Cancer Centre Singapore (NCCS), including a 10-year service and maintenance agreement. It will be the first proton beam therapy system in Southeast Asia.The PBT system planned for the centre will be equipped with Hitachi’s spot scanning technology and will have four treatment rooms with rotating gantries as well as a fixed beam room. The system will be housed in NCCS’ newly constructed 24-story cancer treatment and research center, projected to complete in 2021.Proton beam therapy is a cutting-edge cancer treatment that reduces side effects commonly found in conventional radiotherapy. Cancer is the No. 1 cause of death in Singapore(1). With NCCS tending to almost 70 percent of all public-sector institutions’ cancer patients in Singapore, the availability of the first PBT system in the country is undoubtedly a milestone in its cancer treatment.Prof. Soo Khee Chee, director of NCCS said, “NCCS aims to provide the best in cancer care. Proton beam therapy benefits cancer patients as they experience fewer side effects. It will also spur Singapore’s medical community to look for new remedies for cancer. We are also excited about the research possibilities that will open up when the facility is established.”In December 2007, Hitachi became the first company in the world to clear the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) Premarket Notification Special 510(k) for spot scanning irradiation technology with the PBT system. Hitachi then delivered a proton beam therapy system to the largest cancer hospital in the world, the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (May 2008), followed by Nagoya Proton Therapy Center (February 2013) and the Hokkaido University Hospital Proton Beam Therapy Center (March 2014). In fiscal year 2015, three more sites in the United States utilizing Hitachi’s proton beam therapy system have also begun patient treatment. Hitachi was also awarded the contract with Sibley Memorial Hospital, a member of Johns Hopkins Medicine, in June 2015.The company’s proton beam therapy systems have treated more than 10,000 patients to date while achieving over 98 percent clinical availability rates (system uptime). With long-term service together with quality maintenance, Hitachi’s proton beam therapy system is globally renowned for its high reliability.For more information: www.hitachimed.com FacebookTwitterLinkedInPrint分享 Catalyst PT image courtesy of C-RAD 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 The MD Anderson Proton Therapy Center expansion is expected to be completed in 2023.

McConnell promises Senate vote on lateterm abortion bill

first_imgThe bill makes exceptions to save the mother’s life or if she was a rape victim who receives counseling or medical treatment at least 48 hours before the procedure. Also exempted would be minors who were victims of rape or incest and reported the incident to law enforcement or social service officials.Copyright © The Associated Press. All rights reserved. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed. Top Stories McConnell was interrupted by applause as he reminded the crowd that the measure “couldn’t even get a hearing” when Democrats controlled the Senate.“I promise you will be getting a vote,” he said, though he did not specify when.Underscoring how the issue galvanizes both sides, the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee almost immediately solicited contributions from supporters, writing in an email, “When anti-women attacks are what passes for leadership, it’s time for a change.”Though the GOP-run House approved similar legislation last month, it faces an uphill climb in the Senate. Republicans control that chamber with 54 seats but will need 60 votes to defeat a Democratic filibuster.Most Democrats are sure to oppose the bill by presidential hopeful Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., and some moderate Republicans could too. Among the handful of GOP senators not listed as co-sponsors Friday were Sens. Kelly Ayotte of New Hampshire and Mark Kirk of Illinois, who face potentially competitive re-election races next year.Should it reach his desk, a veto by President Barack Obama would be all but certain.“I hope Republicans will reverse course and focus on real challenges rather than using women’s health to score political points, but if they don’t, they should know that this dangerous legislation is nothing but a dead end,” said Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., top Democrat on the Senate Health committee. WASHINGTON (AP) — Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell promised Friday that his chamber will vote on legislation banning most late-term abortions, setting the stage for a showdown over a top conservative priority that his party will likely lose.“It’s about time we begin the process of putting America into the ranks of most other civilized countries by protecting unborn children after 20 weeks in the womb,” the Kentucky Republican told a conference of the conservative Faith and Freedom Coalition.
